Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
I realize politicians brag, obfuscate, embellish their rhetoric with faulty conclusions, but it works both ways. To listen to the Democrats, Trump has lied over 3,000 times in 4 years (where's the poor guy they chose to sit and write down all those lies?). That figure is just one of many that the Democrats and Biden/Harris have pulled out from their butts in trying to demean and discredit our President.
Since this year's presidential campaign started, the Democrats and Biden/Harris have run ads and made statements that are patently false (in other words, lies), but the “fake news media” doesn't report their “faux pas” like they would if President Trump made such falsehoods. Here's a list of some of the lies that the Democrat candidates have made recently.
#1 – They claim that President Trump has called the CORVID#19 virus a hoax. The very liberal Biden supporting Washington Post gave Biden's campaign “4 Pinocchio's”.
#2 – They claim that the Trump campaign doesn't have a plan for confronting the Corona virus. Wasn't it President Trump who set up, with V-P Pence in charge, the Virus Task Force? Wasn't it the President who banned travel from China at the end of January, thereby mitigating the number of infected individuals into the country, and of which Dr. Fauci said saved many thousands of lives, and also his ban on individuals coming in from Europe? Also, wasn't it President Trump who initiated “Operation Warp Speed” urging drug companies to come up with a vaccine before the end of the year?
#3 – Kamala Harris said that Trump only paid $750 in federal taxes in 2017, according to the anti-Trump N.Y. Times, but she forgot to mention that Trump paid millions in payroll, property and other taxes along with state and local taxes. This was an anti-Trump hit piece by the biased N.Y. Times.
#4 – They claim that Trump hasn't proposed an infrastructure plan, but forgot to mention that he proposed a plan to Congress 2 years ago, but that the Congress, under Speaker Pelosi, hasn't acted on it.
#5 – They claim that the Trump tax cuts only helped the top 1% of tax payers. In fact, the tax cuts helped Americans at every income level. The average family of 4 saved over $2,000.
#6 – The Biden/Harris team claimed they will only raise taxes on people making over $400,000. However, Biden has said that he would eliminate all of the Trump tax cuts, which means all who gained from Trump's tax cuts will ultimately pay more taxes, as rates will increase.
#7 – Biden/Harris claim that they will not ban “fracking”, but both were on record during the Democrat primary stating they would ban fracking, and in addition, ban all fossil fuels by 2035. They change their views when they want to appeal to voters in areas where fracking is taking place, such as Pennsylvania, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, N. Dakota etc. They must think people in those states are stupid and would fall for their double-speak.
#8 – They claim that Biden was responsible for the Recovery Act (after the recession of 2008) that supposedly brought the country back from the Great Recession. In fact, Biden oversaw the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression. The shovel ready jobs they claim weren't really shovel ready at all.
#9 – They claim that Trump is responsible for the economic downturn since the beginning of the year, but no mention is made of China who unleashed the virus, which caused the economic catastrophe, resulting in the downturn. The recovery is well underway, as of now, and Trump claims he will bring back the economy like it was before the pandemic hit us.
#10 – They claim after reading an anonymous article in the Atlantic Magazine that Trump called our fallen soldiers “suckers and losers” while on a trip to Europe. At least 14 individuals, who were on that trip, have gone on the record to refute those anonymous sources and the allegations made. Even a Trump critic, John Bolton, who was on that trip, said he never heard the President make those comments.
The list could go on and on, but I'm sure you get the picture. His critics parse or twist his every word or action, in order to make him look bad in the eyes of the voting public. In the eyes of the Democrats and their lackey's in the media, Trump can do no right, he can only do wrongs. The media is over 90% negative toward Trump and the Republicans, which proves that they will not hold the lying Democrat candidates feet to the fire strictly because they hate Trump so much.
So, when the Democrats accuse Trump of being a serial liar, they should look in the mirror to see who the real liars are. As the old saying goes, “People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones”. Both Biden/Harris deserve the designation of “4 Pinocchio's”.
