The left and media besieged President Trump’s term by obsessively attempting to convince Americans, among many negative labels, that the man is a pathological liar and untrustworthy. The New York Times, whose motto is “All The News Fit To Print” morphed its mission into a leftist activist agenda and maintained a Trump lie ticker on the front page. The Washington Post, whose motto is” Democracy Dies In Darkness” had a fact-checker database accordingly. Cable news like CNN and others ran their tally boards as well. Consider that the NYT chose to cover Trump’s first 40 days as President by assembling what they called “a massive list of Trump’s lies. “The mission was clear and keeping a president and his administration honest was clearly not the objective.
Over Trump’s four years the premier papers of record and media outlets spout the claim that he made 30,573 false or misleading claims as president. The problem lies in who is determining what a lie or misleading statement is. Any cursory inspection of the Post database, and others, reveals that the idea that Trump has told 30,573 “false or misleading” statements is itself false and misleading, read here for further analysis.
The exercise of the guardians of truth and they’re bagging a huge number on their tickers requires manipulation and propaganda. No doubt, like all past presidents and politicians, Trump has stated things that were not true but the propaganda he was a pathological and dangerous liar to the American people is evil on its face. Here is a brief review of how they did it :
- Racking up redundancies and counting them, or any variation, as new lies.
- Labeling as untrue or misleading by taking Trump’s non -politician verbal excess communication style out of context and assigning a meaning he did not assert-omitting what came before or after the statement then flagging as a lie.
- Declaring a policy or ideological disagreement with the left is a factual lie.
- Fabricating and changing the meanings of words to fit a narrative to support the claim the statement was a falsehood.
The Right Wire Report is launching the #BidenLieLedger. The objective is to inform Americans of Biden’s false statements and to set the record straight. We will not engage in attaching the word lie to policy or ideological disagreements we might have with him or his administration. We will not count the same entry 200 plus times as separate examples. We are not interested in the agenda behind tallying up a large number against him and intend to be as unbiased as humanly possible.
Here are the first four lives in just the first two weeks of the Biden administration.
|#1 Fracking: Candidate Biden promised to eliminate fracking only to reverse this promise during the presidential debates.
“Would there be any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in a Biden administration?” CNN’s Dana Bash asked during a July 2019 primary debate.
“No, we would work it out, we would make sure it’s eliminated, and no more subsidies for either one of those, any fossil fuel,” Biden said.
Furthermore, during an exchange with a voter in Claremont, New Hampshire, one voter asked Biden, “But what about, say, stopping fracking?”
Biden replied with a simple, “Yes.”
Later during the presidential debates, Biden lied and claimed he had never supported a ban on fracking in a clear attempt to win over more voters.
On his first day in office, Biden signed an executive order that put a hold on all oil and gas development in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge. On Jan. 27, he signed an additional executive order that pauses new oil and gas leases on federal land, effectively banning new fracking there for as long as the policy lasts.
Press Secretary Jen Psaki further confirmed the intent of the Biden Administration in an exchange with this reporter:
Left-leaning and left funded Politi-fact and other Democrat front media outlets such as CNN have been feverishly spinning this latest U-turn by Biden. Essentially the stretch is to claim he did not ban ALL FRACKING yet.
The Right Wire Report deems that Biden was adamant while asking for votes during the presidential race about his commitment not to ban any fracking. Biden’s team claimed that any claim by the Trump campaign that Biden would do so was fearmongering and false.
|#2 Biden Campaign promise to “Shut down Covid:” The cornerstone of Biden’s campaign was to assert he would be able to lead on the pandemic and “shut down Covid” and charge that Trump and his administration was incompetent in doing so. More pointedly, Biden claimed Trump had been negligent and made the pandemic effects worse on the American people. Biden claimed to have a well thought out plan to attack the virus. But only two days into his term Biden made this jarring admission: “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”
Biden’s first days in office he declared the new goal of vaccinating one million people a day – however, the Trump administration had already met that goal. He also claimed the previous administration had left no plan in place for vaccine distribution. Dr. Fauci strongly refuted Biden on this issue. Biden promised to open schools in 100 days but the present timeline with resistance from the teacher’s unions puts opening back as far as May 2021. Read more about Biden’s nonexistent plan which was to continue Trump’s plan here.
After Biden’s debacle statement that the pandemic is deepening and on a trajectory that cannot be impeded – he rushed out a 198-page “plan”, read more here. Read the Twitter smackdowns on the hypocrisy of the Biden campaign pledge with side by side comparisons and whiplash from the current status.
The Right Wire Report deems candidate Biden lied to Americans about the Trump pandemic response and his capability and plans if elected, read the section on Trump’s COVID response here. As President, he has made many misleading statements about Trump’s vaccine distribution plan, the number of those getting vaccinated, and school openings. Biden has implemented a Mask Ban for federal facilities including transportation. It should be noted that the CDC already recommended masking and the TSA and federal agencies/Congress chose, without a mandate, already the implementation of specific compliance with mask-wearing during the Trump era.
Biden has made many misleading statements as president to date 02.03.21 on pandemic response.
|#3 Vote Biden ticket to get a $2000 Stimulus check:
In January 2020 the declared winner of the 2020 presidential election, while specifically campaigning for the Georgia Democrat candidates in the senate runoffs, election promised $2000 in the stimulus. However, Biden’s $1.9 Trillion COVID Relief Package provides for only $1400 direct payments.
The Twitter hashtag “#BidenLied” started trending.
The Right Wire Report deems that Biden’s promise of a specific amount if Georgians voted Democrat in the runoffs was not fulfilled. Biden agreed lesser amount in his package indicates he has backtracked on the original commitment.
Biden did not keep his word.
|#4 Biden again falsely labels Trump’s Travel Ban as a Muslim Ban:
This was a lie.
