President Biden repeatedly lies about the capabilities of firearms, the historical treatment of gun ownership, and the legal status of the industry that serves public demand for firearms. He does so while pushing restrictions on guns based on those misstatements. And he’s seemingly immune to correction.

“Every U.S. president has a responsibility to get American history correct, especially when he’s using a supposed history lesson in service of a political objective,” The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler warned last year. “The president’s push for more gun restrictions is an important part of his political platform, so he undercuts his cause when he cites faux facts.”

“Those false statements can be dismissed as just another gaffe or ‘Corn Pop’ story, but they refer to the factual foundation for gun control under the Second Amendment,” added George Washington University Law School Professor Jonathan Turley after the most recent fabrications. “Since President Biden is suggesting that such facts are material to a ban, there is a need for accuracy in such details.”

At this point, after multiple ignored corrections, it’s a stretch to pretend that the president’s misstatements are accidental; he obviously doesn’t care about their truth. What’s important to him and his supporters is achieving their policy goals, even if they have to lie to do so.

Of course, government lies aren’t new. The FBI was recently caught lying (again) to steal property from safe deposit boxes. The drug war was largely based on liesyear after decade. So were many wars including those in Vietnam and Afghanistan. Someday we should tally the cost in lives and wealth of officials making things up to get their way.

This is especially maddening as government appoints itself to police “disinformation” and “misinformation” that is often just disagreement with the powers-that-be. The message seems to be that the public better not argue with officialdom, but they can just lie at will to get their way. Inevitably, government is the worst offender when it comes to distinguishing truth from falsehood.

Controversial gun laws already suffer widespread defiance by people with practical, constitutional, and philosophical objections. Winning passage of restrictions through deliberate misrepresentations won’t make compliance any more appealing.

      • Great idea !! The new muppet spokesperson Karin sure has her hands full ; there was no answer to THAT particular gaffe in the official handbook.
        Never thought I’d be thinking ” gee, I kinda miss ole Raggedy Ann “

  1. Far too many people see this man as competent. He is everything the Democrats claim Trump is. Biden does not have this nations best interest in mind. He is not fit for office.

    • What you said used to be true. When he had a mind he was a corrupt, bloviating liar of epic proportion that never accomplished anything positive in his miserable life. Now he is a senile fool.

      • Whoever is feeding Biden’s Teleprompter is really who is running this country. Biden is nothing but a senile old man being used to fool all those people out there that are easy to fool.

    • We now live in a country where one Political Party can lie about anything they choose. This is because we have a mass media that not only doesn’t challenge their lies but broadcasts and prints these lies so as to give them veracity. The average voter in this country believes these lies and votes accordingly. God help us!

  2. Lying is the first and foremost requirement to be a socialist, progressive marxist, communist democrat politician…..Surprised?

  3. In a world where the average citizen can on their own, fact check the statements of any Politian. This however is not forcing some to be more honest. The really stupid ones just double down. Thinking no one will notice.

  4. Look, fat!!! I can do more pushups than anybody and want you to take me behind the school where children will rub the hair on my legs and Jackie, where are ya? Oh hey, stand up Jack let’em see ya! Think about what you’ll think about blow out the lungs right our of the body F-15’s the waters up an inch we can’t be certain where it will hit but we’re certain where it will hit and honor the Holocaust you stupid son of a bitch.

    • WTF? This is how schizophrenics and persons with psychosis talk. In the ER we petition and certify them insane and then they are involuntary committed.

      Stop by and visit me at work and we’ll take care of you.

        • And yet it was still more coherent and informative than Impotent Ol Pedo Joe. We live in a clown world where it’s nearly impossible to exaggerate.

      • William,

        I agree; Biden is psychotic and/or suffering from a severe case of age dementia. That string of non sequiturs was simply a string of Biden quotes.

        That Biden is a senile vegetable is incontestable. That he was a moron BEFORE he became senile (and a sexual predator, and a child molester, and a serial plagiarist, and a corrupt grifter) is also well-documented.

    • Dacian, you are a good example of what’s wrong with this country of ours. There are just too damn many of you. A product of a failed educational system.

  5. “Since President Biden is suggesting that such facts are material to a ban, there is a need for accuracy in such details.”

    Not from their perspective there isn’t. They must lie to support their agenda and it is truly sad that a majority of our electorate are so uneducated that they believe those lies.

  6. How many deer are wearing kevlar vests? Not a joke! Get your words straight Jack! I was the outstanding student in the political science department. I graduated with three degrees. Let’s do push-ups together, man. Let’s run. Let’s do whatever you want to do. Let’s take an IQ test, all right?

      • No one needs cages for flat bicycle riding. They gave him that because they give you an assist in pedaling. I didn’t see hills and no one else was using cages. He had the cages because he’s weak. He forgot he had to pull his foot out of the cage because he’s senile.

        • To be fair I forgot to unclip from roadbike my pedals once. Of course, we were several hours deep into a bar-hopping ride and I was in college and pretty sauced. To be safe I finished the rest of the ride in my socks.

        • “pretty sauced”
          Yep there you go. Your brain was compromised. It was a dumb move for them to give him those cages. They probably thought they were going to show everyone how easy he gets around. Serves them right.

    • Don’t forget slow Joe looking for a dead Indiana congresswoman…he’s senile. Rapist and diddled his own daughter. Took bribes from Ukraine & China. Makes Trump look like The best President ever…

    • Trump was called out DURING his presidency on a constant basis. Whether he lied or not.

      Now how about our CURRENT president? Seems the fact checkers have taken a sabbatical.

    • You know, I kept hearing about those 20,000 “lies” the WaPo supposedly had a list of and when finally challenged a TDSer posted a couple of dozen of them.

      Turned out that the majority were NOT lies, they were statements the Leftists disagreed with. The others were simple misstatements that anybody could have made in off-the-cuff speeches or conversations.

      Of all those provided, and I suspect the provided all the ones he thought most relevant, not a single one could be considered an out and out lie for political purposes.

      • And here’s a shocker: everyone knew the guy made a career out of bragging and exaggerating. It’s inconsequential. People are more concerned about living a free life and providing for their family. That’s becoming more difficult by the day with the current regime.

  7. Biden is in the Combative Anger Stage of Frontal Lobe Dementia.
    The worst is yet to come & his handlers are in complete denial.

    • Did you even read what you wrote; why would his handlers be in denial? This couldn’t have gone more perfectly for them: they have an utterly worthless and completely senile (illegitimate) president who probably can’t even remember anything about them on a day to day basis. Yet they can control the country through him with zero chance of exposure or accountability. There’s no denial there, just ruthless political calculation that works out in their favor. They get everything they want with basically zero risk, no denial necessary

  8. Joe made a long career out of lying that was often covered with “it’s just another gaffe who know how he is.”

    It has progressed to something worse than lying, for someone in his position: dementia. He no longer knows the difference.

    And meanwhile our economy is tanking, citizens who are not on board with the lies and delusions are being labeled insurrectionists and even Nazis (Hillary Clinton, 9/26/22) and Russia’s fumbling attack on Ukraine is approaching nuclear.

    We have reason to be concerned

    • The whole “gaffe” thing is just to cover for him. During the campaign, they tried to shut down the senile talk by claiming it was just his recurring stuttering problem that he has fought since he was a kid. Oh, is that so? Go play a video of the Puppet from 20 years ago. Compare and contrast with the present. And if a stuttering problem that he supposedly overcame is resurfacing now, why is that?

  9. The reason he lies about ar15 & 9mm is because they are the most popular. If you get rid of those you get the most guns in one swoop. Every time he bumps his gums about it people buy more, thinking I better get it while I can. All it’s about is taking away our ability to fight back. Remember Oswald used the cheapest Italian rifle you could get.

  10. Jim Crow Gun Control democRat joe is pandering to millions of gullible politically inept history illiterates who stand for nothing and fall for anything. Sneaky marxists know once the lie is planted in the mind of a useful idiot the lie is not easily dug up and replaced with truth.

    Make no.mistake about it…With blowbag joe and his ilk at the helm America is a sitting duck just like the school children in Uvaldie.

    • Unlike the schoolchildren and teachers in Uvalde we are not sitting around waiting for the first responders to actually respond.

      We are armed to the teeth and pissed off.

      November 9th.

      Or as my sister posted a few days ago: No-Dem-ber 9th.

  11. “Winning passage of restrictions through deliberate misrepresentations won’t make compliance any more appealing.”

    Ruling class tyrants like Biden don’t give a damn about “appealing” to you. The intend to impose their will on you and they will use the government’s police power monopoly on legalized violence to do it.

    You don’t matter. Only THEY matter. Get it?

    • jwm,

      You give Senile Joe too much credit; he doesn’t lie, he READS lies written for him off his teleprompter. Senile Joe doesn’t even remember which flavor of ice cream he had last.

  12. It was commonly discussed when I was in law school that “stupid laws” detracted from the respect afforded ALL laws . . . laws against stupid things like spitting on the sidewalk (crude and obnoxious, but a crime???) make people disrespect other laws.

    Laws must be based on “malum in se” crimes (rape, murder, kidnap, theft, assault and battery, etc.) not “malum prohibitum” – EVERY “malum prohibitum” crime is . . . somebody’s opinion that something is “wrong”.

    If anyone is surprised that Senile Joe’s absurd efforts to regulate guns are increasing the level of disrespect afforded the FBI, police, ATF, and gun laws in general, they haven’t been paying attention.

    • … How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat???
      Hey you…. stand STILL with it !!

  13. The Liberal Democrats are the real racists in this country. Martha’s Vineyard proved that beyond a reasonable doubt. The ghettos of the Democrat-run cities have replaced the cotton plantations of the old south. Too many black people haven’t woken up to that fact yet but the times they are a changing. Mark my words.
