Updated Dec. 2, 2021. Ninety-four lies and counting. 

Not even a year into his time in the White House and the end to President Joe Biden’s lies is nowhere in sight. Here is part two of The Federalist’s rigorous coverage keeping the Biden administration accountable with substantive fact-checking throughout the president’s tenure.

You can find part one of “The Full List Of Every Lie Joe Biden Has Told As President” here. 

Biden Makes Up Story About 1967 Visit To Israel

At the Dec. 1 White House menorah lighting in celebration of Hanukkah, President Biden made up a story about a 1967 visit to Israel during the Six-Day War.

“I have known every — every prime minister well since Golda Meir, including Golda Meir,” Biden said in the East Room. “And during the Six-Day War, I had an opportunity to — she invited me to come over because I was going to be the liaison between, she and the Egyptians about the Suez, and so on and so forth.”

Meir however, was not elected prime minister until 1969, two years after the Six-Day War. The Israeli prime minister in 1967 was Levi Eshkol, who served between 1963-1969.

Biden Repeats False Claim That He Used to Drive A Tractor-Trailer

While touting the passage of the newly passed bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in Minnesota, President Joe Biden repeated the debunked claim that he previously drove a tractor trailer.

“I used to drive a tractor trailer,” the president said during an event at Dakota County Technical College.

The statement from Biden is one of several instances of the president falsely claiming that he drove such a vehicle. While speaking at an event in Pennsylvania over the summer, the president proclaimed that he had previously driven “an 18-wheeler.” When pressed by Fox News for evidence of such an instance occurring, a White House official pointed to a “December 1973 article from the Wilmington Evening Journal that showed Biden rode in an 18-wheeler on a 536-mile haul to Ohio.”

White House Falsely Claims That Biden Never Opposed COVID-Induced Travel Restrictions

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki falsely claimed that Biden never opposed international travel restrictions based on COVID-19. 

“The President has not been critical of travel restrictions,” she said during a press briefing. 

 

Biden did, in fact, criticize then-President Donald Trump in early 2020 for shutting down certain travel to the U.S. due to COVID-19 fears and said the decision was xenophobic but later tried to downplay his comments.

Psaki, however, revived the “xenophobic” narrative to justify Biden’s decision to suddenly shut down travel from certain foreign countries struggling with COVID-19.

“Before Joe Biden’s president, he said that COVID travel restrictions on foreign countries were hysterical xenophobia and fear mongering. So what changed?” Fox News’s Peter Doocy asked.

“What the president was critical of was the way that the former president put out I believe a xenophobic tweet,” Psaki said.

Most Afghans Not Vetted Before Entering U.S. Despite Biden’s Claims

Despite Biden’s claims that Afghan refugees would be vetted before entering the U.S., a new report suggests that “almost none of the 82,000 people airlifted from Kabul” underwent security evaluation.

In August, Biden promised in a statement that evacuees would be screened at security checkpoints.

“Planes taking off from Kabul are not flying directly to the United States,” the president said. “They’re landing at U.S. military bases and transit centers around the world. At these sites where they are landing, we are conducting thorough scrutiny — security screenings for everyone who is not a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident.”

Instead of interviewing all of the Afghans entering the U.S., the Biden administration simply used pre-existing criminal and terrorist records to weed out some evacuees.

Biden Walks Back Claims About ‘Garbage’ Report Detailing Illegal Alien Payouts

Biden walked back claims about a Wall Street Journal report detailing hundreds of thousands of dollars in payouts to illegal aliens and said that he supported a compensation policy.

“If, in fact, because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration, you were coming across the border, whether it was legal or illegal, and you lost your child. You lost your child, [your child] is gone, you deserve some kind of compensation! No matter what the circumstances,” Biden said. “What that will be? I have no idea.”

Biden previously claimed the WSJ  report was “garbage” and denied that the “administration is planning to pay illegal immigrants who are separated from their families at the border up to $450,000 each, possibly a million dollars per family.” One day later White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed that the president is “perfectly comfortable with the Department of Justice settling with the individuals and families who are currently in litigation with the U.S. government.”

Biden refused to answer further questions about potential DOJ settlements

Biden Claims His Administration Isn’t Paying Illegal Immigrants

During a press conference on Nov. 3, President Joe Biden denied reports that his administration was planning to provide payouts to illegal immigrants separated at the U.S. southern border.

“If you guys keep sending that garbage out? Yeah, but it’s not true,” he said. “That’s not gonna happen.”

The president’s claim, however, was refuted the following day by White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who told reporters that Biden is “perfectly comfortable with the Department of Justice settling with the individuals and families who are currently in litigation with the U.S. government.”

Moreover, the American Civil Liberties Union also contradicted Biden’s claim, with Executive Director Anthony D. Romero telling Fox News that the plan is actively under consideration.

“President Biden may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department as it carefully deliberated and considered the crimes committed against thousands of families separated from their children as an intentional governmental policy,” Romero said. “We respectfully remind President Biden that he called these actions ‘criminal’ in a debate with then-President Trump and campaigned on remedying and rectifying the lawlessness of the Trump administration. We call on President Biden to right the wrongs of this national tragedy.”

Biden Says Electric Cars Can Drive Across America On One Tank

President Joe Biden claimed electric cars can drive across America “on a single tank of gas.”

The average electric car however, can only travel between 250 to 350 miles before a required charge, according to the University of California Davis’ Institute of Transportation Studies. A trip from Los Angeles to New York is nearly 2,800 miles.

“You plug it in,” Biden said.

Biden Claims Glenn Youngkin Sought To Ban Books

While campaigning for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe in Virginia, President Joe Biden claimed Republican opponent Glenn Youngkin sought to ban books.

“He’s gone from banning a woman’s right to choose to banning books written by Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize winning author, Toni Morrison,” Biden said in the Washington D.C. suburb of Arlington.

The bill Biden’s referring to however, would have made Morrison’s 1987 work, “Beloved,” optional for students based on parental consent. McAuliffe vetoed the bill as governor.

Biden Claims He Has No Time to Visit the Southern Border

During his CNN town hall on Oct. 21, Biden claimed he has no time to visit the southern U.S. border.

“I’ve been there before,” Biden said, echoing an excuse that was often used by his Vice President Kamala Harris before she was pressured into a quick trip. “And I haven’t — I mean, I know it well. I guess I should go down. But the — but the whole point of it is: I haven’t had a whole hell of a lot of time to get down. I’ve been spending time going around looking at the $900 billion worth of damage done by — by hurricanes and floods and — and weather, and traveling around the world.”

Biden also used his wife, First Lady Jill Biden, and her visits to “both sides of the river,” the Rio Grande, as an excuse for his lack of presence.

Despite Biden’s claims that he’s too busy with other important matters to deal with the unraveling border crisis in person, the president has taken multiple vacations and flies back to his home in Delaware nearly every weekend where he escapes the scrutiny of visitor logs and pressing White House responsibilities.

Biden Blames Staffing Shortage on COVID Fear

During the same CNN town hall, Biden overlooked his role in creating widespread staffing shortages by lining the pockets of Americans with federal dollars. Instead, he blamed the labor shortages on a lack of COVID-19 vaccine mandates and mitigation techniques.

Not only did the president say people are “reluctant to go back to work because they’re afraid of COVID,” but he also claimed it’s because workers “are not required to wear masks, they’re not required to have shots.”

The economy under Biden is still a disaster and trying to recover from government-mandated lockdowns and unemployment benefits that have pushed key workers to stay home. Polling also shows a majority of Americans have been personally affected by the Biden administration’s supply chain crisis.

Biden Says COVID Vaccine Prevents Virus Spread

The president falsely claimed in a speech justifying vaccine mandates that getting the COVID-19 vaccine prevents the spread of the virus from one person to another.

“We’re making sure health care workers are vaccinated because if you seek care at a health care facility, you should have the certainty that the people providing that care are protected from COVID and cannot spread it to you,” Biden said.

Biden’s claim is not only contradicted by the CDC, which admits that the COVID jab doesn’t prevent infection, but it is also contradicted by the countless number of breakthrough cases appearing throughout the U.S., wherein vaccinated people still contract the virus and can give it to their neighbors, friends, family, and coworkers.

White House Says Biden’s Stance on Hyde Amendment Hasn’t Changed

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that President Joe Biden “opposes the Hyde Amendment” and “that has not changed.”

While Biden may have been clear about his opposition to the Hyde Amendment in the expensive reconciliation bill, the president hasn’t always been against it.

In July 2019, Biden’s now-vice president called him out for flip-flopping on the provision that stops taxpayer dollars from funding abortions. Biden originally expressed support for the amendment and even used his time as a senator to affirm it. During his presidential run in June 2019, Biden’s campaign announced he would uphold the Hyde Amendment, but when pro-abortionists pressured him, he reversed his position less than two days later.

McKenzie Confirms Biden Lied About Troop Recommendations in Afghanistan

Gen. Kenneth McKenzie recommended thaat President Joe Biden maintain a military presence in Afghanistan contrary to Biden’s claims otherwise.

“I recommended we keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan,” McKenzie told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Sept. 28.

In an August interview with ABC News, Biden denied just that.

“So no one told — your military advisers did not tell you, ‘No, we should just keep 2,500 troops. It’s been a stable situation for the last several years. We can do that. We can continue to do that’?” pressed George Stephanopoulos.

“No,” the president said. “No one said that to me that I can recall.”

White House Claims ‘Build Back Better Agenda’ Costs Nothing

The White House is claiming that Biden’s “Build Back Better Agenda” costs virtually nothing.

“My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars. Instead of wasting money on tax breaks, loopholes, and tax evasion for big corporations and the wealthy, we can make a once-in-a-generation investment in working America. And it adds zero dollars to the national debt,” Biden tweeted.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki repeated a similar claim in the press briefing room.

The corporate media latched onto the Biden administration’s narrative but, in reality, the plan costs more than the projected $3.5 trillion dollars over 10 years that Democrats are parading around. According to The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, true costs over a 10 year period total closer to $5 trillion or $5.5 trillion.

Biden Amplifies Border ‘Whip’ Lie

President Joe Biden deepened his administration’s lies that mounted Border Patrol agents used “whips” against Haitian migrants at the southern U.S. border on Friday by claiming that “people were being strapped” and run over by horses.

“It was horrible to see. To see people treated like they did? Horses running them over? People being strapped? It’s outrageous,” Biden claimed.

The president repeated the administration’s promise to conduct an investigation into the incident, which started after footage and photos on social media went viral, and said that the people involved “will pay.” The White House already announced that Border Patrol in Del Rio would no longer use horses.

The photographer who took some of the photos that circulated to further the false narrative admitted on Friday that he never saw Border Patrol use the leather against anyone.

“I’ve never seen them whip anyone,” Paul Ratje told KTSM. “He was swinging it, but it can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture.”

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas previously said that despite viral claims amplified by the White House, Democrats, and the corporate media, Border Patrol agents were not whipping Haitian migrants who illegally crossed the border into the United States. One day later, Mayorkas changed his tune and told CNN viewers, “[I was] horrified by what I saw.”

“One cannot weaponize a horse to aggressively attack a child. That is unacceptable. That is not what our policies and our training require. … Let me be quite clear: That is not acceptable,” Mayorkas claimed. “Any mistreatment or abuse of a migrant is unacceptable, is against Border Control policy, training, and our department’s values.”

Biden Administration Scales Back COVID Treatments After Promising Them to States

The Biden administration is cutting back on sending free doses of monoclonal antibodies to red, southern states where they were used as a highly effective treatment for COVID-19 patients.

In a new policy shift, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that the distribution of monoclonal antibodies to states will now be centralized, moving away from the previous process which was based on direct orders and demand — an action that will almost certainly cut the number of treatments sent to southern, Republican-led states.

Days before the HHS announcement, Biden promised that the administration would “increase the average pace of shipment across the county of free monoclonal antibody treatments by another 50 percent.” The White House also pledged in the president’s “Path Out of the Pandemic” plan that the administration would implement this change in September.

“Monoclonal antibody treatments have been shown to reduce the risk of hospitalization by up to 70% for unvaccinated people at risk of developing severe disease. As hospital systems experience increased COVID-19 cases, many have identified monoclonal antibody treatment as a key tool to improve health outcomes, prevent hospitalizations and reduce the strain on overburdened hospitals,” the plan reads.

Biden Blames COVID-19 Case Spike on Unvaccinated

Biden blamed the United States’ most recent COVID-19 spike on people who haven’t received their dose of the shot.

“This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” Biden said in a speech, also tweeting that “people are dying and will die from COVID-19 who don’t have to.”

“If you haven’t gotten vaccinated, do it now. It could save your life and the lives of those you love,” he wrote.

By making this claim, Biden not only overlooked the fact that vaccinated people are still catching “breakthrough cases” of the virus, but he also ignored the role of natural immunity.

Biden Claims U.S. Electricity Will Be Net-Zero Emissions by 2020

During a Sept. 7 tour of the storm devastation left by Hurricane Ida in the Northeast, President Biden pledged more aggressive action on climate change to reach net-zero electricity emissions by 2020.

“We are determined that we are going to deal with climate change and have zero net emissions by 2050, by 2020 make sure all our electricity is zero emissions,” Biden said.

The deadline for any 2020 goal, however, elapsed nine months ago.

Biden Flip-Flops on Whether Life Begins at Conception

In his most recent flip-flop on abortion issues, Biden said he does not believe life begins at conception.

“I respect those who believe life begins at the moment of conception and all, I respect that. Don’t agree, but I respect that. Not going to impose that on people,” he said.

In 2019, Biden said, “I’m prepared to accept for me, personally, doctrine of my church” when it comes to life and conception, “but I’m not prepared to impose that on every other person.”

Even earlier than that, in 2015, Biden claimed, “I’m prepared to accept that the moment of conception is a human life and being.”

“But I’m not prepared to say that to other God-fearing, non-God-fearing people that have a different view,” he said before clarifying that he was “not prepared to impose” that doctrine on others.

In 2012, Biden told his vice-presidential debate opponent Paul Ryan that “with regard to abortion, I accept my church’s position on abortion as a — what we call de fide (doctrine?).”

“Life begins at conception. That’s the church’s judgment. I accept it in my personal life,” Biden said. 

Biden Claims He Visited Pittsburgh Synagogue After 2018 Mass Murder

Speaking before a group of Jewish leaders, Biden claimed that he visited the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh following the 2018 antisemitic attack on the worship site that left 11 people dead.

“I remember spending time at the, you know, uh, going to, uh, the, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them,” he said.

The president’s claim was quickly deemed false, however, with Tree of Life Executive Director Barb Feige saying that Biden never visited the synagogue following the horrific 2018 attack.

“Barb Feige, executive director of the Tree of Life, said that Biden did not visit the synagogue in the nearly three years since the anti-Semitic attack,” the New York Post reported. “In a phone interview, Feige, executive director since July 2019, said firmly that ‘no’ Biden didn’t visit, even before taking office when he had a lower public profile as a former vice president and then-Democratic presidential candidate.”

Biden Backtracks on Promise to Stay in Afghanistan Until All Americans Get Out

Just a couple of weeks before the last of U.S. troops left Afghanistan, Biden said, “Yes. … if there’s American citizens left, we’re going to stay until we get them all out.”

Less than 24 hours after the full troop withdrawal by the administration’s Aug. 31 deadline, however, the Pentagon confirmed that Americans are still “stranded” in Afghanistan. Estimates suggest that hundreds, possibly thousands, of U.S. citizens are now at the mercy of the Taliban.

Biden Administration Claims It Has Taken Responsibility for Afghanistan Crisis

Secretary of State Antony Blinken falsely claimed that the Biden administration has taken responsibility for the chaos ensuing in Afghanistan.

“Is there anything about the shortcomings that have been so readily identified by all sorts of people that you guys are actually willing to take responsibility for yourselves?” one reporter asked.

“I take responsibility, I know the President has said he takes responsibility, and I know all of my colleagues across government feel the same way,” Blinken said. “And I can tell you that there will be plenty of time to look back at the last six or seven months, to look back at the last 20 years, and to look to see what we might have done differently, what we might have done sooner, what we might have done more effectively. … There’s going to be, as I said, plenty of time to do an accounting of this.”

Not only has Biden deflected blame for the United States’ botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, but Politico reported that the White House and “administration allies have begun aggressively touting the success of their evacuation efforts in the war-torn country,” despite the near-universal consensus that the evacuation was a crisis.

“They’ve framed the operation as historic — in line with the Berlin airlift — declared that they’re ‘over performing’ their own metrics, and trumpeted the president as ‘defying expectations,’” Politico added.

White House Denies That Any Americans Are Stranded in Afghanistan

Press secretary Jen Psaki denied that the Americans who were left scrambling to leave Afghanistan following the collapse of the government and the Taliban’s takeover are “stranded.”

“I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded. They are not,” Psaki said.

“‘There are no Americans stranded’ is the White House’s official position on what’s happening in Afghanistan right now?” Fox News’s Peter Doocy asked.

“I’m just calling you out for saying that we are stranding Americans in Afghanistan when we have been very clear that we are not leaving Americans who want to return home,” Psaki replied. “We are going to bring them home and I think that’s important for the American public to hear and understand.”

While the Pentagon and State Department have yet to announce just how many Americans are hoping to get out of Afghanistan and back to the states, thousands are still believed to be clamoring for evacuation.

Biden Falsely Claims Governors Are Banning Masks in Schools

Biden falsely claimed that governors are banning the use of masks in schools.

“Unfortunately, as we have seen throughout this pandemic, some politicians are trying to turn public safety measures — children wearing masks in school — into political disputes for their own political gain. Some are even trying to take power away from local educators by banning masks in school. They are setting a dangerous tone,” he said.

While some Republican governors and legislatures have taken steps to ban mask mandates and face-covering requirements in government schools, no elected officials have enacted a ban on masks.

Biden Says US Has Afghanistan Crisis Under Control

Biden claimed the United States has the Afghanistan crisis under control.

When interviewer George Stephanopoulos asked Biden about “those hundreds of people packed into a C-17” and “Afghans falling,” Biden not only lied that it was “four days ago, five days ago” but also angrily claimed that the U.S. quickly took control of the Kabul airport.

“What did you think when you first saw those pictures?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“What I thought was, we have to gain control of this, we have to move this more quickly. We have to move in a way in which we can take control of that airport. And we did,” Biden said.

Biden Says There Are More Vaccinated People In The US Than the American Population

President Biden falsely claimed that 350 million Americans are vaccinated despite the fact that there are approximately 330 million people in the United States.

“We have roughly 350 million people vaccinated in the United States and billions around the world,” Biden confidently stated.

Moments later, he checked his notes before doubling down on the lie again.

“Well over — what’s the number again? I remind myself, 350 million Americans have already been vaccinated,” he repeated.

Confused Biden Says He ‘Used to Drive an 18-Wheeler’

During a visit to the Mack Truck facility in Pennsylvania, Biden claimed he “used to drive an 18-wheeler.”

“I got to,” Biden said.

While newspaper records indicate Biden rode in a cargo truck for hundreds of miles to “observe truckers’ woes,” there is no evidence that he ever operated a truck himself.

Biden Claims He Was a Professor After the Obama Administration, but He Never Taught a Class

Biden claimed he was a professor in between his time as Obama’s vice president and his current tenure in the White House.

While Biden was named an honorary professor and led the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, the Democrat never taught a class during those four years.

Biden Admin Mandates COVID Vaccines for Medical Employees Despite Pledging Not To

Biden’s Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough announced on Monday that he will mandate COVID-19 vaccines for health care employees working in Veteran Affairs. According to the press release, “each employee will have eight weeks to be fully vaccinated” before risking termination.

In March, the White House pledged to leave vaccine passports to the “private sector.”

“We expect … that a determination or development of a vaccine passport or whatever you want to call it will be driven by the private sector,” Psaki said. “Ours will more be focused on guidelines that can be used as a basis. There are a couple key principles that we are working from: one is that there will be no centralized, universal federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential; second, we want to encourage an open marketplace with a variety of private sector companies and nonprofit coalitions developing solutions; and third, we want to drive the market toward meeting public interest goals.”

Biden Claims You Can’t Get COVID if You’re Vaccinated

During a presidential town hall hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon on July 21, Biden claimed you cannot contract COVID-19 if you’ve been fully vaccinated against the respiratory virus.

“We don’t talk enough to you about this, I don’t think,” he said. “One last thing that’s really important is, we’re not in the position where we think that any virus, including the Delta virus, which is much more transmissible and more deadly in terms of unvaccinated people, the — the various shots that people are getting now cover that. You’re okay. You’re not going to — you’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.”

According to the president’s own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), however, this statement is patently false.

“COVID-19 vaccines are effective,” the CDC website states. “However, a small percentage of people who are fully vaccinated will still get COVID-19 if they are exposed to the virus that causes it. These are called ‘vaccine breakthrough cases.’ This means that while people who have been vaccinated are much less likely to get sick, it will still happen in some cases. It’s also possible that some fully vaccinated people might have infections, but not have symptoms (asymptomatic infections). Experts continue to study how common these cases are.”

Recent events have also shown Biden’s claim to be false. After flying to Washington, D.C., to protest an election integrity bill, at least six Texas Democrats tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated. Moreover, staffers in the White House and Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office tested positive despite full vaccination status.

Biden Denies that Proliferation of Government Money Is Jacking up Prices

In the same presidential town hall, Biden rejected the idea that the proliferation of government spending bills encouraged by the White House is responsible for climbing prices in the United States.

“You’re pretty confident that inflation is temporary but you’re pumping all of this money into the economy. Couldn’t that add to—” Lemon started before the president interrupted him.

“Look, here’s the deal. Moody’s today — a Wall Street firm, not some liberal think tank — said, if I pass the other two things I’m trying to get done, we will in fact reduce inflation, reduce inflation, reduce inflation. Because you’re going to be providing good opportunities and jobs for people who in fact are going to be reinvesting that money back in all the things we’re talking about. Driving down prices not raising prices. … I sincerely mean prices are up now. … It relates to what in fact is now needed because we’re growing,” Biden replied.

Despite Biden’s claims, economists and legislators have expressed concern that the influx of federal dollars into the economy via stimulus and other spending programs are causing prices of gas, food, and other goods to skyrocket.

Biden Denies Looming ‘Unchecked Inflation,’ His Treasury Secretary Says the Opposite

Biden said the United States should not fear a near future of “unchecked inflation.”

“There’s nobody suggesting there’s unchecked inflation on the way. No serious economist,” Biden said.

Hours later, however, Biden’s Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen expressed worries on CNBC that “we will have several more months of rapid inflation,” a concern echoed by other economists. 

Biden Delivers Lie-Riddled Speech Targeting GOP and Election Integrity

President Biden delivered a lie-riddled address targeting Republicans for blocking Democrats’ partisan election overhaul bill and working to substitute it with election integrity laws.

One of his first falsities was that the Texas GOP’s attempts to pass election reforms would install “partisan poll watchers” to “intimidate voters.”

Biden also repeated the lie that voter ID laws and other election security measures are “21st century Jim Crow.”

“It’s unrelenting, and we’re going to challenge it vigorously,” Biden said.

The president continued to claim that Republicans were leading the charge against voting rights but also said that “the fact that so many election officials across the country made it easier and safer for them to be able to vote in the middle of a pandemic was remarkable.”

White House: Election Laws Are The ‘Worst Challenge To Our Democracy Since Civil War’

Press Secretary Jen Psaki repeated the lie that state elections laws are the “worst challenge to our democracy since the Civil War.”

After a reporter asked Psaki about the Biden administration’s response to the onslaught of election integrity laws, the press secretary listed off a series of bullet points that the president intends to do to fight back against “voter suppression.”

“He will highlight the work of the administration against this, the necessity of passing the ‘For The People Act’ and the ‘John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act’ and how we need to work together with civil rights organizations to build as broad a turnout and voter education system to overcome the worst challenge to our democracy since the Civil War,” she said. “This is an opportunity for him to make the case to the American people about how this is a fundamental right.”

Biden Claims He Was An All-Star Player At Congressional Baseball Game Where He Went 0-2

President Biden told a story on how he hit a ball 358 feet at his second congressional baseball game while hosting the LA Dodgers at the White House on July 2. The only problem: Biden, a freshman Senator from Delaware at the time in 1974, went 0-2 at the game.

“Biden was decked out in Phillies home pinstripes last night as he went 0-for-2 (groundout, strikeout) in the Democrats’ 7-3 loss to the Republicans in the national annual congressional baseball game at Memorial Stadium,” read local coverage of the event.

Biden Claims That Tuskegee Airman Were Experimented On by U.S. Government

While speaking at a North Carolina event on COVID-19 vaccination efforts, President Joe Biden falsely claimed that vaccine hesitancy among black Americans stemmed from past experimentation by the U.S. government on the Tuskegee Airman.

“The reason why it’s been harder to get African Americans, initially, to get vaccinated because they are used to being experimented on — the Tuskegee Airmen and others,” Biden said.

The Tuskegee Airman were the first group of African-American fighter pilots that served in the Army Air Corps throughout World War II. The Airmen were not connected to the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, wherein over 600 black men were experimented on by the U.S. government to “observe the progression of a number of diseases, particularly syphilis, untreated in black males.” Biden also made the same false claim in May 2021 during an interview with YouTuber Jackie Aina.

Border Lead Kamala Harris Claims It Was ‘Always The Plan’ To Visit Border

During her trip to the border in El Paso, TX after delaying a visit for more than 90 days, Vice President Kamala Harris claimed that it was “always the plan” to address the effects as well as the “root causes” of Biden’s border crisis.

“I said back in March that I was gonna come to the border so this is not a new plan,” Biden’s border lead told reporters.

Despite her claims, Harris was not always set on visiting the border. Not only did her own spokesperson say in March that there were no plans for the VP to make a trip to the border in the “near future,” but Harris also laughed off or became defensive when reporters asked her any questions about whether she planned to address the influx of illegal aliens and less-than poor conditions in detention centers for migrant children.

Harris also repeated the lie that it’s not her “first trip” to the border during this administration. The last times the vice president visited the border was before she was elected in October when she campaigned in McAllen, TX and in 2018 when, as a Senator, Harris protested the Trump administration’s immigration policies in San Diego.

Biden Says High Gun Violence In Cities With Tough Gun Laws Is False

During his remarks on the rise in violent crime, Biden claimed that areas of the US with the strictest gun laws don’t have the highest violent crime rates.

“The gun lobby wants you to believe that cities that have the toughest gun laws still have the highest rates of gun violence … don’t believe it,” the president claimed without evidence.

Data, however, shows that even those states that leftist gun control groups have ranked as stricter on firearms experience high levels of the firearm death rate. Even though states such as California, New York, Illinois, and Maryland pride themselves on having more restrictions on firearms than most places in the country, they still experience high levels of gun violence and deaths.
