BOMBSHELL! CNN reported several truths about Joe Biden’s constant spreading of misinformation. CNN senior reporter Daniel Dale fact-checked Joe Biden on nine false statements. Biden’s closing midterms pitch has included false and misleading claims — about gas prices, Social Security, the debt and deficit, his student loans plan, his tax policies and Trump’s, and other subjects. “Biden’s pitch has included claims that are false, misleading, or lacking important context,” writes Dale.
Independent Sentinel CNN’s summary of some of Joe Biden’s lies:
Biden took credit for the biggest increase in Social Security checks, and CNN said it was because the increase is tied to inflation.
Biden also claimed it was the first increase in ten years, but there has been one every year since 2017.
Biden claims the Inflation Reduction Act stops the “practice of successful corporations paying no federal corporate income tax.” CNN explained that “there will clearly still be some large and profitable corporations paying no federal income tax even after the minimum tax takes effect in 2023. The exact number is not yet known.”
The president said he reduced the federal deficit by $1 trillion 400 billion. “The most in American history,” he said. CNN explained it’s not true. “The federal debt has continued to rise under Biden,’ surpassing $31 trillion for the first time. CNN said he doesn’t deserve much credit for reducing the deficit either since he only somewhat cut what skyrocketed under the pandemic.
Biden bragged about unemployment as the lowest in 50 years, but Donald Trump had the same unemployment in 2019 and early 2020.
In late October, Biden told young activists that they “probably are aware, I just signed a law” on student debt forgiveness that Republicans are challenging. He added: “It’s passed. I got it passed by a vote or two, and it’s in effect.” Biden’s claims are false. He did it through executive action.
Biden takes credit for declining gas prices, but he had limited impact. He also lied and said gas was $5 when he entered the office, but in 2021, it was $2.39.
Biden revived a claim debunked more than 20 months ago by The Washington Post and then CNN. At least twice in October, he boasted that he traveled 17,000 miles with Chinese leader Xi Jinping. He spent a lot of time with Xi but didn’t travel anywhere near 17,000 miles.
At the Thursday rally in New Mexico, Biden claimed that under Trump, Republicans passed a $2 trillion tax cut that “affected only the top 1% of the American public.” That isn’t true. The Tax Policy Center think tank found in early 2018 that Trump’s law “will reduce individual income taxes on average for all income groups and in all states.” The think tank estimated that “between 60 and 76 percent of taxpayers in every state will receive a tax cut.” And in April 2019, tax-preparation company H&R Block said two-thirds of its returning customers had indeed paid less in tax that year than they did the year prior, The New York Times reported in an article headlined “Face It: You (Probably) Got a Tax Cut.”
Then there were these:
The Biden White House tweeted: “When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available. CNN reported It’s just not true that “there was no vaccine available” at the time Biden took office. About 3.5 million people were fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and about 19 million people had received at least one vaccine dose as of Biden’s inauguration day on January 20, 2021, according to statistics published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The US was already administering an average of more than 1 million doses a day at the time. The first doses administered outside trials were given on December 14, 2020, while President Donald Trump was still in office. And Biden himself received his second dose nine days before he was sworn in. As far as unemployment goes, Biden never acknowledges that the cause of unemployment back then was the pandemic.
Biden said the $7.25 per hour federal minimum wage is too low, then said soon after: “For example, if it went – if we gradually increased it – when we indexed it at $7.20, if we kept it indexed by – to inflation, people would be making 20 bucks an hour right now. That’s what it would be.” CNN said, this is false; Today’s federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, which took effect in 2009, would not be even close to $20 per hour if Congress had decided to link it to inflation. Adjusted for inflation, $7.25 in January 2009 was equal to $8.98 in January 2021.
Biden said of the US population of undocumented immigrants: “The vast majority of the people, those 11 million undocumented, they’re not Hispanics; they’re people who came on a visa – who was able to buy a ticket to get in a plane and didn’t go home. They didn’t come across the Rio Grande swimming…” Biden was wrong to claim that the majority of undocumented immigrants in the US are not Hispanic. While it is obviously difficult to compile comprehensive statistics on this population group, the Migration Policy Institute think tank estimated in 2018 that 73% of undocumented people in the US speak Spanish at home and 68% are from the Mexico and Central America region, with an additional 7% from South America. The Pew Research Center has found that the Mexican share of the undocumented population has fallen over time, but that people from Latin America still made up 77% of the 2017 undocumented population.
Biden called for community college to be made free for all. He said this would cost $9 billion. Then he added: “We spend almost that money as a break for people who own racehorses.” There is no available evidence for the claim that the tax break for racehorse owners costs the government almost $9 billion or anywhere near that. The White House declined to provide a source for the figure.
But wait, there’s more: CNN admits that Joe Biden is a serial liar & can’t stop:
