WH press sec’y Karine Jean-Pierre fudges on Biden’s inflation lie, NY Times calls GOP the real antisemites and more

A diary of disturbing disinformation and dangerous delusions

This excuse:

“The point is, [Biden] The factors that caused inflation [were] When he is in place. . . took office. ”

— WH Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, Wednesday

we say: Oh, sure, we all accidentally (twice a week!) say that the inflation rate was 9% when we seriously took office. The factors that would cause inflation were in place.

People make such mistakes every day. (do not have.) Inflation did not actually reach 9% until June 2022. 16 months later Mr. Biden was inaugurated.

And all the while, Biden is spending trillions of dollars to inflate the budget deficit, ignoring the (correct) warnings of even liberal economists that it could lead to runaway inflation, and that rising inflation will only be “temporary.” he claimed.

Republicans repeat anti-Semitic tropes despite declaring support for Israel

— The New York Times, May 9

we say: Gray Lady accuses Republicans of “hijacking” left-wing anti-Semitic protests (which she calls “mostly peaceful”), and it’s debatable whether they’re even “constitutional” claims. . . This is a direct attack on Jews. ”

Huh? The Times itself acknowledged that Jews were targeted, ridiculed and told to “go back to Poland.”

This claim is as follows.

“No president has stood stronger against Israel than Joe Biden.”

— National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, Monday

we say: What a bull! Biden and his staff have been tearing Israel to shreds for months, unfairly accusing it of “indiscriminate bombing” in Gaza, calling Israel’s response to the October 7 Hamas massacre “overreach,” and violating international law. suggests that it is in violation of the

Biden also called for a halt to arms shipments to Israel, which is fighting for its survival, and to stop pursuing terrorists in Rafah.

(Again, Sullivan is the one who claimed a few days before Oct. 7 that “the Middle East region is quieter today than it has been in 20 years.”)

This fee:

“[President Donald Trump] He started more work than he finished. He’s just one more man. . . [was] Herbert Hoover. ”

— President Biden, Wednesday

we say: Biden conveniently ignores the coronavirus lockdowns that have cost 20 million American jobs in a month.

But in the eight months before Biden took office, Trump had already restored 13 million of the jobs lost. It took Biden more than a year to get the remaining 7 million back.
