In her first speech as the first black woman vice presidential candidate, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) told a number of easily debunked whopping lies.
Here’s just some of them.
The first one is so obviously a lie it’s difficult to understand why she said it. I guess it’s because she knows the news media won’t call her on it.
“The president’s mismanagement of the pandemic has plunged us into the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression,” Harris said.
That’s a bald-faced lie. Donald Trump had nothing to do with it. The virus pandemic and the lockdowns, not President Trump, are responsible for the economic woes. Donald Trump is not the president of the Euro Zone, which suffered through a much more drastic economic situation in the second quarter: -40.3 percent, annualized, as against -32.9 percent in the US. The UK suffered an economic downturn of 59.8 percent, also on an annualized basis.
So, right there alone, Kamala Harris lied to you. Harris was not speaking to her base. She knows they know she is lying. Harris was talking to the Independents, those who may still be on the fence for who they’re going to vote for.
Remember this, the president wasn’t in charge of states during the pandemic, their governors were. Trump made suggestions, but the governors did as they pleased. That’s called federalism. Trump did not shut down a single business. He didn’t lock any citizens down, didn’t force anyone to wear a mask, didn’t wreck the economy.
The US economy did slightly better than Germany’s in the second quarter.
It’s also asinine to compare the current crisis to the Great Depression, which was not only deep but went on for more than a decade, under a Democrat president no less. In contrast, the US added 1.8 million jobs in July, and Goldman Sachs predicts 25 percent (annualized) GDP growth in the current third quarter, which might mark an end to the US recession after two quarters. That is mostly because of Trump’s economic policies being so fantastic before the Chinese loaned us their pandemic virus, we were able to stay above a depression level, despite the fact that Democrats governors are still trying to destroy the Orange Man Bad economy.
“Just look where Trump and Mike Pence have gotten us. . . . Millions of kids who cannot go back to school,” Harris lied.
Another big whooping lie. It’s not Donald Trump’s decision whether children return to school or not, because the federal government doesn’t run the schools. The president has, however, has urged the schools to open this fall. The primary reason kids can’t return to school is opposition from teachers’ unions and Democrats who both want to hurt Trump’s reelection chances by forcing lockdowns, government forced business shutdowns, and now schools remaining closed. They believe it will anger people so much that they will believe lies like the ones Harris is telling about the president. For goodness’ sake, the second-largest teachers’ union is threatening to strike if schools reopen! How the hell can you blame Donald Trump for that?
“Six years ago, in fact, we had a different health crisis,” Harris said. “It was called Ebola. We all remember that pandemic.”
Do we? Does anyone remember the Ebola pandemic? I don’t think so, because it wasn’t a pandemic. It was an outbreak, according to the World Health Organization, and if I’m not mistaken, the only case we were made aware of was at a hospital in Texas, and that was only because the Obama administration gave permission for that patient to go to Texas, traveling from Africa.
Does anyone even know anyone who caught Ebola back then? Certainly no one on my block.
“This virus has impacted almost every country,” Harris said. “But there’s a reason it has hit America worse than any other advanced nation. It’s because of Trump’s failure to take it seriously.”
Another blatant lie by Kamala Harris. A number of advanced nations have suffered more fatalities per million population than the US. Belgium, the UK, Spain, Italy, Sweden.
Harris brought out exactly what every conservative knew would happen. The Democrats took advantage of the virus and made life as miserable for their own constituents as possible, so that now, right now, Democrats can blame all their misery on Donald Trump.
It’s no longer the time to remain silent. You have to speak up, point out the lies that are being told, because if their plan works and they win the White House, you will not recognize the country after the first six months of a Harris administration. That’s right, I said Harris administration, because Biden is almost gone at this point. Kamala Harris will be calling all the shots, and even though the media is lying through their teeth right now trying to convince you that Harris is a moderate, she is as woke radical progressive as it gets. Talk to your liberal and Independent friends and tell them about the lies being told about Trump and about our country.
