Updated September 23, 2022. One hundred eighty-seven lies and counting. 

More than one year into President Joe Biden’s time in the White House and the end to his lies is nowhere in sight. Here is part three of The Federalist’s rigorous coverage keeping the Biden administration accountable with substantive fact-checking throughout the president’s tenure. 

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

187. Biden Claims Roman Catholic Church Changed Position on Ending Unborn Lives

During remarks at the Democratic National Committee Reception on Sept. 22, Biden falsely claimed the Roman Catholic Church caved on allowing exceptions for abortions in the case of rape and incest.

“My generic point — and I happen to be a practicing Roman Catholic — my church doesn’t even make that argument now. And so we’re in a situation where things have changed a lot. But they’ve gotten more extreme in their positions,” Biden said.

While certain Catholic-identifying politicians such as Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi regularly tout abortion, the Catholic Chuch still maintains that killing a baby, whose life began at conception, is a sin.

“Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law,” paragraph 2271 of the Church’s Catechism states.

Even Pope Francis has publicly condemned Biden’s support for abortion as an “incoherence.”

186. Biden Pretends Inflation Isn’t Hurting Americans

During his “60 Minutes” interview with Scott Pelley on Sept. 18, Biden argued inflation is not as bad as it seems.

“Let’s put this in perspective,” Biden said. “Inflation rate month to month was up just an inch. Hardly at all.”

“You’re not arguing that 8.3 is good news?” Pelley asked, noting that the annual inflation rate for August was up 0.1 percent from July and more than 8 percent since the same time last year.

“No, I’m not saying it’s good news, but it was 8.2 or 8.2 before. You’re making it sound like all of a sudden, my God, it went to 8.2 percent,” Biden said.

As Pelley noted, “It’s been the highest inflation rate, Mr. President, in 40 years.” Americans are struggling to pay their grocery and energy bills, which have cost hundreds of extra dollars compared to previous years.

“I got that,” Biden retorted. “But guess what we are. We’re in a position where, for the last several months, it hasn’t spiked. It is just barely, it has been basically even.”

185. Biden Falsely Claims Energy Costs Came Down

In the same “60 Minutes” interview, Biden claimed energy prices have come down, but data for August inflation show energy costs are up 23.8 percent since August of 2021.

184. Biden Says His Expensive Spending Plans Will ‘Get Control of Inflation’

Moments after denying that inflation is spiking, Biden claimed that it’s his administration’s plans, including massive spending plans such as the misnomered Inflation Reduction Act, that will “get control of inflation.”

“Is the economy going to get worse before it gets better?” “60 Minutes” interviewer Pelley asked.

“No, I don’t think so. We hope, we hope we can have what they say a soft landing,” Biden said. “…I’m telling the American people that we are going to get control of inflation. And their prescription drug prices are going to be a hell of a lot lower. Their health care costs are going to be a lot lower. Their basic costs for everybody. Their energy prices are going to be lower.”

Despite Biden’s self-professed optimism about the economy, reports from financial analysts including those at the Congressional Budget Office say Democrats’ spending will make inflation over the next five years much worse, not better, as Biden and his party claimed.

183. Biden Repeats Civil Rights Activist Fib

During a Labor Day speech Biden claimed that, as a child, he became “very engaged in my case in the civil rights movement.”

“As a kid, I worked a lot in the movement,” Biden said.

Not only did Biden himself admit in 1987 that he was “not out marching” and “not down in Selma,” but even the media have repeatedly debunked Biden’s false assertions that he was “an activist.”

182. Biden Says AR-15 Bullets Travel Five Times Faster Than ‘Any Other Gun’

At an Aug. 30 speech in Pennsylvania, President Biden claimed “the bullet out of an AR-15 travels 5 times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun.”

181. Biden Says Inflation Reduction Act Will Not Raise Taxes On Americans Earning Less than $400K

During an Aug. 16 signing ceremony for the Democrat Party’s $740 billion “Inflation Reduction Act,” Biden claimed that “no one earning less than $400,000 a year will pay a penny more in federal taxes” once the legislation takes effect.

Biden’s assertion, however, runs contrary to an analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), which estimates that Americans earning less than $400,000 a year “will pay an estimated $20 billion more in taxes over the next decade” as a result of the bill, “which also sets aside $80 billion to hire 87,000 IRS agents.”

180. Biden Says ‘Zero’ Inflation in July Following 8.5 Percent Rise

July’s consumer price index yielded a whopping 8.5 percent inflation increase since the same time last year, but according to Biden, July actually had no inflation whatsoever.

“I just want to say a number: zero,” Biden said in an address on Aug. 10. “Today, we received news that our economy had zero percent inflation in the month of July. Here is what that means: While the price of some things went up last month, the price of other things went down by the same amount.”

Though the CPI figures were down slightly from the 9.1 percent recorded in June, the prices for everyday necessities such as groceries and electricity continue to shoot upward, with the latest numbers showing a 10.9 and 15.2 percent increase, respectively, since last year.

179. Biden Claims He Has Cancer

In a “climate crisis” speech about fossil fuels in Massachusetts on July 20, Biden incorrectly claimed that he has cancer caused by oil pollution in his home state. Biden said that growing up, pollution in Delaware was so bad that his mother had to use windshield wipers to “get literally the oil slick off the window.”

“That’s why I and so d-mn many other people I grew up [with] have cancer,” Biden said.

The White House physician quickly released a statement clarifying that Biden “remains a healthy, vigorous, 78-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.”

The physician noted that Biden “has had several non-melanoma skin cancers removed” before.

178. Biden Pretends He Wrote Law Review Articles About Right to Privacy

During a speech about the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision, Biden claimed he had written “a number of law review articles” about the right to privacy referenced in the now-overturned Roe v. Wade decision.

“And I have written, way back, a number of law review articles about the Ninth Amendment and the — and the 14th Amendment and why that privacy is considered as part of a constitutional guarantee. And the — they’ve just wiped it all out,” he said.

Biden may have helped pen close to 19 law review articles — and even flunked a law school class after plagiarizing portions of someone else’s law review article in one of his papers — but has never had a review published on the “right to privacy.”

As The Washington Post noted, the closest thing Biden has to a law review on the 14th Amendment is a 1991 opinion article in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

177. White House Silent on Biden’s Hunter Lies

When asked about Joe Biden’s voicemail indicating that he knew about Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said she could not “comment on any materials from [Hunter’s] laptop.”

Biden previously promised to “always level” with the American people but has repeatedly lied about his son’s financial activity despite copious evidence that he may have been involved in some of Hunter’s transactions.

176. Biden Lies About Billionaire Tax Rate

Biden tweeted that there are approximately 790 billionaires who are taxed at an average rate of 8 percent. He went on to claim that “I believe that no billionaire should be paying a lower tax rate than a teacher, a firefighter, an electrician, or a cop.”

As Carol Roth, a former investment banker and economic commentator noted in a Twitter thread investigating the president’s claims, Biden’s assertion that billionaire tax rates are low is not only misleading, but it’s also false.

According to Roth, the study the White House used to determine what Biden claims is the billionaire tax rate does not rely on normal factors such as tax records and income. Instead, it included unsold stock.

“What they are using is not INCOME at all, it is stock appreciation, NOT realized. This is a made-up proxy of a wealth tax,” Roth tweeted.

As Roth noted in her analysis, “this is not how income tax works, and it is straight up a lie to say this an income tax rate for billionaires and portray it as an average tax rate of the ‘wealthiest.’”

Roth said the Biden administration intentionally “took a one time event and used it to compare to yearly taxes.”

175. Biden Repeats ‘Fastest-Growing Economy’ Lie

Biden told Jimmy Kimmel during a June 8 interview that the U.S. has the “fastest-growing economy in the world.”

Not only did the American economy shrink last quarter, but it is also plagued with record-high inflation and gas prices, a supply-chain crisis, and a baby formula shortage that has put several babies in hospitals.

174. Biden Says Trump Abused Constitutional Authority

During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Biden agreed with accusations that Trump passed out executive orders “like Halloween candy.” He also accused the former president of abusing “the Constitution and constitutional authority” by issuing executive orders.

“I have issued executive orders,” Biden said after promising he wouldn’t issue executive action on guns, something he has already done. “But what I don’t want to do is emulate Trump’s abuse of the Constitution and constitutional authority. I mean that sincerely because I often get asked — look, the Republicans don’t play it square, why do you play it square? Well, guess what. If we do the same thing they do, our democracy will literally be in jeopardy.”

While Biden blames Trump for what he says is an excessive amount of executive orders, the facts show Biden is on track to outpace the former president’s executive authority tally. During his first few months in office, Biden clocked more than 42 orders. Trump, on the other hand, issued 33.

173. White House Says Economy Is ‘In a Better Place’ Now than Historically

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters in a press briefing on Tuesday that Biden’s administration believes “the economy is in a better place than it has been historically.”

Not only do voters reject this lie, but so do the facts. Inflation in the U.S. has reached record highs nearly every month recently as the supply-chain crisis and national staffing shortage drag on. Since Biden assumed office, gas prices have more than doubled.

There’s also a baby formula shortage that began when Biden’s Food and Drug Administration shut down a plant. It took months for the White House to address the critical crisis that left several young children and babies hospitalized.

172. White House Repeats Lie that Semiautomatic Gun Ban Decreased Mass Shootings

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre repeated the lie that Congress’s 1994 semiautomatic gun ban decreased mass shootings.

“When he — when we talk about the executive actions that he’s taken — more than any president at this time of their administration — those are real steps that this president has taken. And not just as president, during his Senate years, in 1994, the banning of assault weapons; that is something that he led on,” she said during a press briefing on June 6. “And if we even look at what happened those first 10 years of that — of that assault [weapons ban] was in law — into law, it actually brought down mass shootings. And when it — when it expired in 2004, 10 years later, we saw mass shootings triple.”

A 2004 study funded by the Department of Justice, however, found that the Clinton-era ban was not the reason shootings decreased in the U.S.

“We cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence. And, indeed, there has been no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence, based on indicators like the percentage of gun crimes resulting in death or the share of gunfire incidents resulting in injury,” the report stated. “The ban’s impact on gun violence is likely to be small at best, and perhaps too small for reliable measurement. AWs [assault weapons] were used in no more than 8% of gun crimes even before the ban.”

171. White House Says Biden Believes Excessive Federal Spending Helped Economy

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told members of the press on June 6 that Biden believes his $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan actually helped the economy instead of contributing to its problems.

“I want to say the Rescue Plan has really been able to help us, put us in an economic, a place where we’re stronger. And … this is something that we have to really continue to remember, we are in an economic crisis. And the president met that moment by putting forth the American Rescue Plan, by Democrats on the Hill voting for that plan, and really putting us in a place where we look at today in a much stronger economic situation where we can actually deal with inflation head-on,” Jean-Pierre said. “We have a lot of work to do and we understand what the American people are feeling, but we are in a stronger place to take that on.”

It’s a repeat talking point from the administration but one that holds no water against record-high inflation and gas prices.

170. Biden Claims He Initiated Fastest Economic Recovery

During a speech on June 6, Biden claimed that “my plans have produced the strongest, fastest, most widespread economic recovery America has ever experienced.”

Biden also bragged about “record jobs, new record small businesses, and wages rising,” but he did not mention that inflation has far outpaced those hikes for months now. The president also did not mention that gas prices have more than doubled since he assumed office in January of 2021.

https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1533891641781764097?s=20&t=LeMTRb0AW6jh7sT01bHDAQ

Meanwhile, Americans deal with a prolonged supply-chain crisis, inflation, and rising gas prices that the administration refuses to take responsibility for.

169. Biden Says Gun Manufacturers Have Blanket Immunity that Doesn’t Exist

President Biden claimed gun manufacturers enjoy blanket immunity on how their firearms are used.

“We should repeal the liability shield that all protects gun manufacturers from being sued for the death and destruction caused by their weapons,” Biden said in a gun speech on the evening of June 2. “They are the only industry in this country that has that kind of immunity.”

Biden’s claim, however, enjoys no merit. Suing a gun company for a gun that fires when the trigger is pulled is akin to suing the Coors Brewing Company because beer got people drunk.

The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which became law in 2005, protects firearm manufacturers from liability for weapons used in a crime. Companies, however, may still be sued for negligence, breach of contract over gun purchases, and weapons defects.

168. Biden Says Deficit Cut Under Him Will Be Largest in History

“The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projected that the deficit will fall by $1.7 trillion this year – the largest reduction in history,” Biden wrote in his WSJ op-ed.

That’s a misleading claim, however, that doesn’t capture just how huge Biden’s budget deficit remains. History shows that this year’s $1 trillion deficit will be “the 7th worst on record.”

167. Biden Claims Economy Was Already Bad Before Covid-19

“Things should also look different from the decades before the pandemic, when too often we had low growth, low wage gains, and an economy that worked best for the wealthiest Americans,” Biden wrote in his opinion editorial detailing “My Plan For Fighting Inflation.”

From 2017 to 2019 under Trump, however, GDP growth averaged 2.54 percent. Hourly earnings were also up 2.97 percent and outpaced the 2.13 percent inflation rate.

“In 2019, median household income saw its largest increase on record. The unemployment rate hit its lowest rate in nearly 50 years, poverty rates for all races were the lowest on record, and income inequality declined,” the America First Policy Institute determined.

166. Biden Repeats Putin Price Hike Lie

“The price at the pump is elevated in large part because Russian oil, gas, and refining capacity are off the market,” Biden wrote in his inflation article in the Wall Street Journal.

Gas prices started rising long before the Russia Ukraine war. When Biden assumed office and waged a war on domestic oil and gas production by shutting down drilling and pipelines, gasoline prices rose significantly. From Biden’s inauguration to the week Russia invaded Ukraine, gas prices in the U.S. rose from $2.38 per gallon to $3.53 per gallon.

165. Biden Claims He Inherited ‘Stalled Economy’

Biden wrote in his inflation op-ed that “In January 2021, when I took office, the recovery had stalled.”

Shortly before Biden was inaugurated, however, the economy measured an annualized growth rate of 4.5 percent.

164. Biden Says Americans Are Better Paid Under His Administration

Biden claimed in his Wall Street Journal op-ed that “millions of Americans getting jobs with better pay” now that he is in office.

While earnings under Biden have risen 5.5 percent, real wages are down 2.8 percent and prices keep rising above the current 8.3 percent rate.

“The average American has lost about $1,350 in purchasing power from President Biden’s inflation tax,” the America First Policy Institute calculated.

163. Biden Claims He Initiated ‘Fastest Decline in Unemployment on Record’

In his opinion editorial detailing “My Plan For Fighting Inflation,” Biden falsely claimed that his administration is responsible for “the fastest decline in unemployment on record.”

“The job market is the strongest since the post-World War II era, with 8.3 million new jobs, the fastest decline in unemployment on record, and millions of Americans getting jobs with better pay,” he wrote.

Records, however, show that employment from May 2020 to January 2021 under Trump grew by 12.5 million. During that time period, the unemployment rate also declined 8.3 percent, which is 5.7 percent more than the fall measured under Biden’s watch.

162: Biden Repeats False Cannon Claim

Shortly before Biden signed an executive order on policing, he repeated his claim that when the Second Amendment was created, “You couldn’t own a cannon.”

“You couldn’t own certain kinds of weapons. There’s always been limitations,” he said while arguing in favor of more restrictions on Americans’ rights to keep and bear firearms.

Not only were cannons legal when the Consitution was drafted, but they are also legal now. Revolutionary and Civil War-era cannons that don’t take a cartridge can be bought and sold as saluting and signaling devices in the United States. Certain modern artillery cannons that do take cartridges are classified as destructive devices and are legal and regulated under the National Firearms Act.

161: Biden Lies About Number of Times He’s Visited the Middle East

During his commencement speech at the U.S. Naval Academy in May, Biden claimed he has been to Iraq and Afghanistan “38 times.”

“I’ve been in and out of Iraq and Afghanistan over 40 — I think 38 times,” Biden stated.

Not only did his own campaign confirm in 2019 that this was not true after the first time he stated this falsehood, but even The Washington Post fact-checked him on the erroneous claim.

Biden also implied that his son Beau Biden died in combat even though he passed away from cancer.

“My son spent a year in Iraq, won the Bronze Star, Conspicuous Service Medal. I lost him,” Biden said.

160: Biden Says He Received Appointment to Naval Academy

Biden told graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy at their May commencement that he had received an appointment to attend the academy in 1965.

“Before I begin my speech, a thought crossed my mind as I was told the class of ‘72 is here. I was appointed to the academy in 1965 by a senator who I was running against in 1972,” Biden said. “Never planned it that way. I wasn’t old enough to be sworn in. I was only 29 years old when I was running. He was a fine man, and his name was J. Caleb Boggs.”

Biden went on to say that he declined to attend the academy “because I wanted to be a football star” and “you had a guy named Staubach and Bellino here.”

“So I went to Delaware,” he added.

At the time described in Biden’s claim, however, the future president was graduating from the University of Delaware. The football players he mentioned as deterrents to his dream of being a football star had also previously graduated, Roger Staubach in 1965 and Joe Bellino in 1961.

159: White House Says Biden Came Up With ‘Ultra MAGA’ Label Himself

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed in a May 10 press conference that President Biden came with the “ultra MAGA” label to define his political opponents all on his own.

“It’s the president’s phrase, and the president made those comments himself,” Psaki said.

The Washington Post revealed on May 13, however, that the label is the product of a “six-month research project” by the left-wing group Center for American Progress Action Fund with former Harvey Weinstein apologist Anita Dunn.

158: Biden Says There Was No Vaccine Available When He Took Office

The White House claimed no coronavirus vaccine was available when President Biden took office in a May 12 tweet.

Operation Warp Speed however, a project to fast-track development for the pandemic disease, produced vaccines in record time. In fact, about 1.3 million Americans were given inoculations on Biden’s first day in office, surpassing the vaccination pace President Biden pledged of 100 million doses distributed in his first 100 days to mark another accomplishment of Donald Trump.

Biden even received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine before taking office.

157: Biden Claims Roaring Economy He Inherited Was On ‘Brink Of A Great Depression’

At a May 11 address in Chicago, President Biden portrayed himself the savior an economy nearing collapse, except the economy was on a rebound from the short-lived pandemic recession that lockdowns threatened to restrain.

“We had an economy on the brink of a Great Depression,” Biden said, despite the nation’s economy not contracting until a year into the president’s term.

According to data from the Department of Commerce, quarterly GDP remained positive until this year, when it decreased 1.4 percent in the first quarter. Real GDP growth under Biden’s first quarter in office was higher than it had been in at least three years as the economy recovered from Democrats’ shutdowns.

156: Biden Claims Vote To Block Abortion Bill Was Partisan. But Joe Manchin Also Voted No

President Biden condemned Republicans on May 11 for their unified rejection of an abortion guarantee written into federal law ahead of a potential decision from the Supreme Court to terminate Roe v. Wade as ruling precedent.

“Once again – as fundamental rights are at risk at the Supreme Court – Senate Republicans have blocked passage of the Women’s Health Protection Act, a bill that affirmatively protects access to reproductive health care,” Biden said.

But West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat, also rejected the bill.

Manchin explained his opposition to the bill on Capitol Hill.

“I respect people who support” it, Manchin said of the bill, which would prevent states from passing restrictions on abortions before fetal viability, and would further allow women to kill their unborn babies if a physician determined the baby was “a risk to the pregnant patient’s life or health” — which could easily be interpreted to broadly include a variety of things under the banner of emotional health.

“Make no mistake. It is not Roe v. Wade codification,” Machin continued. “It’s an expansion. It wipes 500 state laws off the books.”

155: Biden Once Again Blames Inflation on Putin and Covid Pandemic

Inflation reached a four-decade high last month, but, contrary to what Biden said during a speech on economics, Vladimir Putin and Covid-19 are not chiefly to blame.

“There are two leading causes of inflation we’re seeing today,” Biden said. “The first cause of inflation is a once-in-a-century-pandemic … [and] a second cause: Mr. Putin’s war in Ukraine.”

Inflation, especially for fuel, was already a problem long before the Russia-Ukraine conflict began because Biden waged an open war on the domestic oil and gas industry. On his first day in office, the Democrat nuked the Keystone XL pipeline because it threatened his green energy agenda. Since then, Biden has also canceled Arctic drilling leases and rained down taxes and regulations on domestic production.

Since Biden first assumed office in January of 2021, prices of gasoline, food, rent, and other items have skyrocketed. These price hikes only worsened after Congress passed Biden’s $1.9 trillion federal spending bill.

154: Biden Says Inflation Is His ‘Top Domestic Priority’

During an inflation speech, Biden claimed that tackling inflation is his “top domestic priority.”

“I want every American to know that I am taking inflation very seriously and it’s my top domestic priority,” Biden said.

Biden says he’s “taking inflation very seriously” but so far this week, his administration has been far more preoccupied with rejecting the Supreme Court’s leaked Dobbs v. Jackson draft opinion, which could see the court overturn Roe v. Wade, than soothing American consumers’ fears about a recession.

He also gave no indication that he plans to reinstate the American energy independence achieved under the Trump administration to lower gas prices, which rank as one of the highest inflation jumps each month.

153: Biden Said Robert Bork Thought Government Gave Americans Rights

Biden claimed Judge Robert Bork, the Supreme Court nominee he infamously torpedoed and smeared for his “original-intent judicial philosophy,” believed the government gives people rights.

“Bork believed the only reason you had any inherent rights was because the government gave them to you,” Biden said.

While Bork did appear to reject natural law as a guiding legal philosophy, he acknowledged its existence and never claimed to believe that inherent rights come from the government. Instead, Bork referred to rights in his confirmation hearings as something that could be transferred between parties but did not clarify how they were bestowed.

“What a court adds to one person’s constitutional rights, it subtracts from the rights of others,” Sen. Paul Simon of Illinois quoted Bork saying before asking whether Bork still believed that.

”Well, yes, Senator,” Bork said. ”I think it’s a matter of plain arithmetic.”

152: Biden Accuses ‘MAGA Crowd’ of Being ‘the Most Extreme Political Organization … in American History’

In a rant about the Supreme Court’s leaked Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization opinion signaling the end of Roe v. Wade, Biden accused the “MAGA crowd” of being “the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history,” before adding, “recent American history.”

Biden failed to acknowledge that there are far more extreme and violent groups operating within the U.S., who have initiated deadly terrorist attacks on Americans, than the millions of people who voted for and support former President Donald Trump.

He also falsely suggested that the SCOTUS ruling on Dobbs would allow states to bar LGBTQ students from attending class with other students.

“If you have states change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children. Is that legit under the way that the decision is written?” he asked.

There is no mention of LGBT children or classrooms in the Dobbs draft.

151: Biden Blames Putin for Months-Long, Record-High Inflation

Inflation reached a 40-year high last month, but Vladimir Putin and Covid-19 are not to blame, contrary to what Biden likes to suggest.

“I know that families are still struggling with higher prices. I grew up in a family where if the price of gas went up, we felt it. Let’s be absolutely clear about why prices are high right now: COVID and Vladimir Putin,” Biden wrote in a tweet on April 20.

The truth is, inflation, especially for fuel, was already a problem long before the Russia-Ukraine conflict began because Biden waged an open war on the domestic oil and gas industry. On his first day in office, the Democrat nuked the Keystone XL pipeline because it threatened his green energy agenda. Since then, Biden has also canceled Arctic drilling leases and rained down taxes and regulations on domestic production.

Since Biden first assumed office in January of 2021, prices of gasoline, food, rent, and other items have skyrocketed. These price hikes only worsened after Congress passed Biden’s $1.9 trillion federal spending bill.

150: Biden Repeats Lie that Buying American Products Is a Priority

Despite his refusal to utilize the U.S. oil industry to achieve energy independence, Biden said buying American-made products is a priority for his administration.

“From Day One, every action I’ve taken to rebuild our economy has been guided by one principle: Make it in America. That means using products, parts, and materials built right here in the United States of America,” the president tweeted.

Biden told a similar lie during his State of the Union address shortly after the White House defended buying at least $1.3 billion worth of Covid-19 rapid tests from China instead of U.S. manufacturers.

149: Biden Claims He Was A ‘Full Professor’ At The University Of Pennsylvania

Biden repeated a claim on April 14 that he was a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, this time claiming “full” professorship despite his 2017-2019 tenure being an honorary position.

“For four years I was a full professor at the University of Pennsylvania,” Biden said during an event on supply chains in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Biden however, didn’t teach at the university, according to a spokesperson for the former vice president at the time he was hired.

The Daily Pennsylvanian headlined a piece ahead of Biden’s arrival, “No one is really sure what Joe Biden will be doing at Penn.”

According to the New York Post, Biden raked in more than $900,000 from the university despite rare appearances.

148: Biden Says You Couldn’t Buy Cannons When Second Amendment Passed

During his gun violence speech on April 11, Biden repeated the lie that cannons couldn’t be bought when the Second Amendment was ratified.

“You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment passed,” Biden claimed.

Not only were cannons legal when the Consitution was drafted, but they are also legal now. Revolutionary and Civil War-era cannons that don’t take a cartridge can be bought and sold as saluting and signaling devices in the United States. Certain modern artillery cannons that do take cartridges are classified as destructive devices and are legal and regulated under the National Firearms Act.

147: Biden Says Gun Manufacturers Can’t Be Sued

Biden said gunmakers are immune from prosecution even though manufacturers can be sued if a firearm is faulty or malfunctions.

“Gun manufacturers have more immunity from liability than any other American industry,” Biden falsely claimed. “So they’ve never had to take responsibility for the death and destruction their products cause.”

Biden also claimed that gun manufacturers are “the only outfit in the country that is immune,” even though many of the manufacturers who created the Covid-19 jab are immune to prosecution.

146: Biden Claims His Family Worried About Gas Prices As a Kid

“I grew up in a family like many of you where the price of a gallon of gasoline went up, it was discussed at the kitchen table,” Biden claimed.

But, as RealClearMarket’s John Tamny noted after Biden told a similar lie in February, Biden “was born in 1942. When Biden was growing up, the price of gasoline was flat. And it was cheap.”

A chart from the U.S. Energy Information Administration shows the price of crude oil nearly flat from the 1880s until the 1970s — far after Joe Biden’s childhood.

145: Biden Says ‘Nothing’ Stopping Domestic Oil Production Even Though He Is

Biden said there’s “nothing standing in the way” of domestic oil companies ramping up production as gas prices skyrocket but his claims are far from the truth.

Even before he assumed office, Biden pledged to take down the domestic oil industry in favor of pushing his green agenda. This involved canceling the permits necessary for the Keystone XL pipeline, halting new oil and gas leases, and more recently, delaying permits for drilling on federal land.

144: Biden Falsely Claims Transgenderism Is ‘Safe and Healthy’

Biden told parents of children suffering from gender confusion that “affirming your child’s identity is one of the most powerful things you can do to keep them safe and healthy.”

Despite Biden’s claims, encouraging young children to take hormone blockers, bind, or engage in other physically altering “treatments” or dangerous and risky procedures is not safe nor healthy. In addition to causing a myriad of harmful side effects including sterility, severe dysfunction, and other health problems, pushing children to embrace an identity different than their God-given sex often leads to transition regret as well as an exponentially higher risk of suicide.

143: Biden Says He Never Watched KBJ’s Confirmation Hearings

Biden told reporters that he “didn’t get a chance to see any of” Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings last week even though the White House said he did.

“The president watched portions of Judge Jackson’s hearing yesterday and today,” a White House staffer announced in a press briefing last week.

It is unclear if Biden simply forgot that he viewed the hearings or if the White House lied about how the president spends his time.

142: Biden Repeats ‘Very Fine People’ Lie to Smear Trump

During a press conference at the NATO summit in Belgium, Biden repeated the lie that Trump called the Charlottesville white nationalists “very fine people.”

Transcripts show that Trump’s “very fine people” line was in reference to the peaceful protesters on both sides who were civilly expressing their opinions about Confederate statues.

“But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name,” Trump said.

Trump specifically said he was “not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally,” but Biden still brings up the hoax on occasion.

141: Biden Says Unemployment Claims Down

Biden claimed that because unemployment claims are down because “our labor market is strong.”

The truth is, restaurants, hospitals, and businesses across the nation are struggling to stay open amid staffing shortages caused by an influx of federal cash. Record numbers of people left their jobs and even the labor market last year after multiple rounds of stimulus checks. Currently, more than 11 million jobs need to be filled and there aren’t enough workers willing to take those positions.

140: Biden Denies Cutting Off Domestic Oil Production

Shortly after he announced Russian oil would no longer be imported into the U.S., Biden claimed that he never stifled the U.S. oil and gas industry.

“It’s simply not true that my administration or policies are holding back domestic energy production. That is simply not true,” Biden insisted.

The truth is, Biden has done nothing but sabotage the U.S. oil and gas industry and replaced it with his green energy policy agenda. The president used his first year in office to wreck domestic production by suspending oil and gas leases, axing projects such as the Keystone XL pipeline on his first day in office, canceling Arctic drilling leases, and pushing a cascade of taxes and regulation on the industry.

As a result, domestic gas prices were rising dramatically well before the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Painful prices at the pump have quickly become a sore spot for Americans, many of whom have indicated they’re looking for a change in the November midterms.
