President Joe Biden stood in front of the world on Friday and threw out so many lies that it denies belief in a Benevolent Being.
Biden began by saying that since he took office, “families are carrying less debt,” and “their average savings are up,” and that “more Americans feel financially comfortable.”

I don’t know what color the sky is in the world he’s created around himself, but personal savings among Americans has declined. According to CNBC, the average amount of personal savings for Americans has dropped 15% from $73,100 in 2021 to $62,086 in 2022, according to Northwestern Mutual’s recent 2022 Planning & Progress study. Roughly 60 percent of US adults say that the pandemic has been “highly disruptive” on their finances. And you can thank the Democratic Party for that. Democrat governors and mayors locked their people down for two years. They created unlawful policies that forced small businesses to shut down and millions went bankrupt, never to come back.
Fortune says that the personal savings rate for Americans fell to 6.2% in March 2022. Americans have been spending their pandemic era savings and they are rapidly evaporating as inflation skyrockets.
I think the Biden administration believes that they can get away with lying over the economy the way they normally do for everything else, which is to gaslight the American people by lying to them, telling them what they are experiencing is not what is really happening. That’s what Biden is doing in this speech. It’s not going to work because too many people are feeling it.
As for “more Americans feel financially comfortable,” the American Psychological Association did a study last month that acknowledged Americans are more stressed out now about money and their financial well-being than ever before.
“Eighty-seven percent of Americans said that inflation and the rising costs of everyday goods is what’s driving their stress,” said Vaile Wright, senior director of health care innovation at the American Psychological Association.
According to Bankrate’s April 2022 Money and Mental Health report/survey, over 40 percent of US adults say that money problems are negatively impacting their mental health. They’re certainly not feeling “financially comfortable.” And that’s just the people they spoke to.
Is this real?

Biden then had the gall to repeat the administration’s lie by blaming the rising cost of gasoline and grocery bills on the “Putin price hike” that even leftist newspapers like the Washington Post, where truth usually goes to die in the darkness, are reporting that the American people “aren’t really buying” it.
Biden says price increases at the grocery store and gas stations have been "exacerbated by the war in Ukraine."

The problem with this lie is that people already know, because they lived through it, that gas prices were rising steadily long before Russia ever invaded Ukraine. The American people know that Joe Biden attacked our energy sector with a gazillion unlawful executive orders that shut down pipelines and drilling leases and oil imports from Russia that no one else did, and he reversed as many Trump era energy policies that worked as he could sign off on in a day. Joe Biden did that.
Here’s the thing. Biden is telling these lies not because he wants you to believe them. He wants you to believe that millions of other Americans believe the lies. That way, it sows doubt in many people’s minds and they start thinking that maybe life is better for everyone else and you must be doing something wrong. Vote for Democrats! That’s gaslighting.
The Biden administration’s answer to inflation was to add more money to the money supply, which was the top cause of the inflation in the first place, back when the lie was that there was no inflation that morphed into it’s transitory.
The Democrats spent us into oblivion after a soul-crushing pandemic and on top of a supply chain problem, exacerbated by paying people to stay home and not work.
The filthy lies that came from the president’s lips were enough to make people want to bathe. The misinformation news media used to report that Trump’s exaggerations were lies and yet they never call Biden out on the carpet for the lies he tells every day.
