Hoo Wee. Biden Told Some COVID-19 Whoppers During His DNC Speech

 MATT MARGOLIS AUG 21, 2020

 

Joe Biden told a lot of whoppers during his acceptance speech at the virtual Democratic National Convention, but his lies and politicization of the COVID-19 pandemic bother me the most.

 

“5 million Americans infected with COVID-19,” Biden said. “More than 170,000 Americans have died. By far the worst performance of any nation on Earth.”

 

While there have been 5 million COVID-19 infections, there’s a detail that Biden deliberately omitted from his speech: The United States is testing more than any other country. Greater testing capabilities mean more infections detected. Our testing capabilities ought to be celebrated, but instead, it’s being exploited as a talking point for Democrats.

 

South Korea’s record on testing was celebrated in the early weeks of the pandemic, but they haven’t been anywhere near the United State’s level of testing in raw numbers or per capita since March.

 

Unfortunately, our incredible testing resulted in a huge misconception: that there was a huge spike in infections. But what happens when you adjust our infection level for the level of testing?

 

Infections did experience a bump, but it wasn’t the spike that the media made it out to be. And the number of COVID-19 infections still pales in comparison to the 60.8 million H1N1 infections during the 2009 pandemic while Biden was vice president.

 

As for COVID-19 deaths, once adjusted for population, here’s how the United States measures up compared to all countries (with a population of a million people or more):

  1. Belgium (873.4 deaths per million)
  2. Peru (838.84)
  3. United Kingdom (622.7)
  4. Spain (616.67)
  5. Italy (586.09)
  6. Sweden (570.06)
  7. Chile (569.75)
  8. Brazil (536.14)
  9. USA (531.53)
  10. Mexico (468.39)

Does that look like “the worst performance of any nation on Earth”? Nope.

 

But, there’s another caveat. New York State, specifically the New York City area (where the COVID-19 response was horribly botched by Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio, resulting in New York becoming the COVID-19 hotspot of the entire world) skews America’s numbers. If we treat New York as its own country, here’s what happens to the numbers:

  1. New York (1674.62 deaths per million people)
  2. Belgium (873.4)
  3. Peru (838.84)
  4. United Kingdom (622.7)
  5. Spain (616.67)
  6. Italy (586.09)
  7. Sweden (570.06)
  8. Chile (569.75)
  9. Brazil (536.14)
  10. Mexico (468.39)
  11. France (452.56)
  12. Panama (441.48)
  13. USA minus New York (405.96)

When you take the worst-hit states of the Northeast (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and D.C.) and treat them as their own country, the rest of the United States drops down to 18th place.

 

Biden then promised that if President Trump is reelected that cases and deaths will remain far too high, even though they are both way down from the peak. But what Biden is trying to suggest here is that he has a magic wand that will end the pandemic. But, as Biden’s record shows, the pandemic would have been much worse had he been president.

This Obama-Biden Administration Failure Killed More Americans Than COVID-19

BY MATT MARGOLIS SEP 09, 2020

 

Everyone on the left is trying to blame Donald Trump for COVID-19 and the deaths caused by it. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to blame Trump for the outbreak in New York. Joe Biden wants voters to believe Trump is responsible for the deaths caused by a virus that started in and was covered up by China for weeks before alerting the World Health Organization. Joe Biden has claimed “it didn’t have to be this way” despite having failed to present a single alternative response to the virus. In fact, he often plagiarized Trump’s COVID-19 response by “proposing” actions that had already been implemented.

 

What the Democrats and the media don’t want us to know is that their scaremongering campaign against hydroxychloroquine, a drug Trump touted as a potential game-changer back in March, could have saved thousands of lives had they not turned public opinion against the drug simply because Trump had brought attention to it after a French study showed it had promise in treating the virus. In fact, countries that are widely using the drug early to treat patients have much lower death rates than th....

 

Had China not covered up the virus for weeks, the number of cases worldwide could have been reduced by up to 95 percent, according to a study by the University of Southampton. Each state had its own COVID-19 response, and the disparity between the states was dramatic. In fact, the five worst-hit states in deaths per capita (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island) account for one-third of all COVID-19 deaths in the country. Blaming Trump for how each state uniquely responded to the virus is absurd.

 

There is an actual example of government incompetence leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths nationwide—but it didn’t happen under Trump. It happened during the Obama-Biden administration. And their incompetence killed more people than the Chinese coronavirus has in this country.

 

The Veterans Affairs Department was notorious for its poorly managed health care system, and the Obama-Biden administration promised to end the horrendous backlog in VA benefits claims, some of which languished for years.

 

But the backlog of VA claims, which had been on the decline when Obama and Biden took office, skyrocketed on their watch. Unprocessed claims exceeded 900,000, with roughly two-thirds of all claims idling for 125 days or longer.

 

From 2011 to 2013, the time it took to process claims increased 40 percent, to an unthinkable 272 days. As a result of this backlog surge the number of veterans who died waiting for care and benefits skyrocketed.

 

And the Obama-Biden administration did nothing.

 

Even after reports of vets dying waiting for care started getting attention, the administration didn’t seem interested in solving the problem. In fact, as reports of falsified waiting lists and unnecessary deaths at hospitals nationwide started being reported by the media, the Obama-Biden administration not only refused to conduct its own investigation, but actually retaliated against whistleblowers.

 

Complaints of retaliation against whistleblowers were filed in 28 states at 45 facilities, according to the independent Office of Special Counsel. That’s systemic retaliation, as if the Obama-Biden administration cared more about the public relations disaster than the lives of our veterans.

 

The Obama-Biden transition team had been briefed on the situation at the Department of Veterans Affairs, which had been improving when they took office, and they even formed a committee to address the systemic problems in the department. They had ample opportunity to turn things around and improve the care of our veterans.

 

Instead, more than 300,000 veterans died while waiting for care from Obama and Biden’s Department of Veterans Affairs, according to an Inspector General report released in September 2015.

 

Barack Obama and Joe Biden are responsible for those deaths. The problems at the VA were fixable and they failed to fix them. We know they were fixable because President Trump actually did what was necessary to fix the problems at the VA.

The lies believed by Toad Worshiping GOPers is beyond imagining.

 

For example, sunluningal's absurd notion about people dying while waiting to have a VA claim processed. Here'ws what the VA IG actually reported:

The VA Office of the Inspector General report in 2015 said 307,173 of nearly 867,000 pending VA applications belonged to individuals who died. But poor record-keeping made it impossible to say how many of them died while waiting for care or how many of them even applied for care.

 

Contrast that with what Republicans claim the report said, and you begin to understand how they can worship a lying Toad - reality has no effect on their thought process.

 

Here's all you need to know about wearing masks curing the Age of tRumpvid20 (nee' Covid19): The virus is airborne. It spreads when an infected person EXHALES and a non-infected person INHALES the same air. MASKS STOP THAT FROM HAPPENING!

 

Toad ADMITTED ON TAPE that he knew all this back in JANUARY when he was informeed of the FACTS in his PDB, and he tried to explain why he did NOTHING by saying he didn't want to panic the American people. So instead, he encouraged behavior that has resulted in 204,000 DEAD AMERICANS. The virus may have originated in China, but not a single Chinese suggested we not wear masks and gather in large crowds to yell support for the ToadPOTUS, or that NOT wearing a mask was the duty of good Americans to show Government could not boss them around. Nope, all that was the work of the ToadPOTUS and HE and he alone are responsible for the deaths we've suffered. By the way, Canada is wearing masks and they had ZERO Covid deaths on 12 September, US total was 808 dead because of tRump's stupidity.

History

 

The Federalist is an English-language online magazine that covers politics, policy, culture, and religion. The Federalist has been described as influential in conservative and libertarian circles. The site was co-founded by Ben Domenech and Sean Davis and launched in September 2013. The current editors are David Harsanyi and Mollie Hemingway

On March 26th, 2020 Twitter locked the site’s account for violating its rules against spreading misinformation about the coronavirus.

 

Read our profile on United States government and media.

 

Funded by / Ownership

 

According to the website, The Federalist is a wholly independent division of FDRLST Media. The website is funded through online advertising as well as paid subscriptions to newsletters.

 

Analysis / Bias

 

The Federalist is a news and opinion website that reports with a right wing bias that typically favors the right and denigrates the left. There is frequent use of loaded emotional language such as this: The New York Times’ Hit Piece On Mike Pence Is Anti-Christian Bigotry, Plain And Simple. In general, The Federalist sources all of their information to credible mainstream outlets, however they sometimes use sources that we have rated mixed for factual reporting such as the Daily Caller.

 

According to an article from the left leaning Daily Beast, The Federalist was openly critical on Donald Trump before he won the election, but has since become a strong supporter of his Presidency and agenda. Further, In November 2017, The Federalist came under criticism from both conservatives and liberals for publishing an opinion piece by Ouachita Baptist University philosopher Tully Borland defending Roy Moore’s dating of teenagers while he was in his 30s and arguing that such behavior was “not without some merit if one wants to raise a large family.”

 

When it comes to reporting on scientific issues The Federalist often does not align with the consensus of experts in the field. For example, in this article the author claims that “I am a skeptic when it comes to climate change. To be clear, I don’t doubt that the climate changes — obviously it does. I don’t doubt that human activity has an effect on this change. What that effect is, and to what extent it influences the entire system, I don’t know. As a scientific concept, I have no opinion on climate change.” The author does seem to have an opinion on Climate change when he states “So, simply put, I am a climate change skeptic because the people advocating it do not act as if it were a verified scientific conclusion.” Although the author freely admits he is not an expert and cannot generate an opinion on the scientific concept; he does not need to have an opinion because there is strong scientific consensus on the impact of human influenced climate change. 

 

The Federalist has also promoted pseudoscience claiming that there is a link between Abortions and Breast Cancer. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists there is  “no causal relationship between induced abortion and a subsequent increase in breast cancer risk.”

 

A factual search reveals that The Federalist has made a few verified false claims.

 

 

Overall, we rate The Federalist a borderline Questionable and far Right Biased based on story selection and editorial positions that always favor the right. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to the promotion pseudoscience and three failed fact checks. (8/8/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 03/30/2020)

Trump isn't a pathological liar? If this wasn't so serous, I would be LOL. Trump cannot make it through 5 sentences in a row without telling a lie. Of course Trump Cult members will deny all of the following because facts and the truth mean nothing in Trump World. The only thing which matters to them is what they want to believe.

 

Everything below is true, but his cult members will never accept anything negative about their Supreme Leader.

 

Trump is a pathological liar. Here are some of his horrific responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

  • The virus is a Democratic Hoax
  • The virus is under "Tremendous Control"
  • Everything will return to normal by Easter Sunday
  • Inject bleach as a preventive measure for Covid-19
  • If you get the virus, take hydroxychloroquine.

Trump has repeatedly ignored the SCIENCE and turned the pandemic into a political issue. the results are clear proof of incompetence, more than 7 millions cases of Covid-19 and more than 205,000 deaths. 

 

Always remember, Trump Cult members will NEVER hold Trump accountable. They will always fnd someone else to blame.

6 Biden Lies About Trump's COVID Response
COMMENTARY
By Kayla Gowdy
 

Joe Biden has struggled to remain relevant since he announced his presidential campaign in April 2019. That task became a lot more difficult since the outbreak of coronavirus.

Before his campaign finally acknowledged the crisis, Team Biden was already limiting public appearances. From 10-minute campaign “rallies” to scripted television interviews, Biden was doing his best to run a campaign without appearing in public.

When the establishment media was still working around the clock to save Biden’s campaign from Bernie Sanders, that plan was working. However, once 24/7 coverage transitioned to COVID-19, Biden remained stuck in his basement bunker, out of sight and out of mind.

His solution to this problem? Attack President Trump’s response to coronavirus with no regard for the truth.

 

Here are Joe Biden’s six most egregious COVID-19 lies:

 

1. President Trump called coronavirus a hoax

Editing President Trump out of context is Democrats’ favorite way to exploit this national emergency for political purposes. Biden’s campaign took two separate statements made by the president at a rally to make it look like he said, “Coronavirus, this is their new hoax.” If you go through the transcript of the president’s statements that night, it is clear that it never happened. President Trump rightfully said the politicization of the crisis is a hoax, just like the Russia witch hunt and the impeachment charade. The Washington Post even awarded Biden four Pinocchios for manipulating the video. But President Trump never said, and never would say, the disease itself is a hoax.

 

2. The Trump administration rejected WHO coronavirus test kits

 During the March 15 presidential debate, Biden asserted the Trump administration “refused to get coronavirus testing kits from the World Health Organization,” while attacking the president for his handling of the COVID-19 response. The truth? WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris said, “No discussion occurred between WHO and CDC about WHO providing COVID-19 tests to the United States.” How could President Trump reject something that was never offered?

 

3. Trump eliminated entities responsible for global health security and biodefense

On March 19, Biden tweeted, “The Obama-Biden Administration set up the White House National Security Council Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense to prepare for future pandemics like COVID-19. Donald Trump eliminated it.” This characterization, however, completely distorts what happened. After President Trump took office, the NSC established the counterproliferation and biodefense directorate, which included global health and biodefense. Tim Morrison, who ran the new directorate, claimed this change made America’s biodefense response even stronger.

 

4. Trump made no effort to get medical professionals to China

At the end of March, during an interview with Anderson Cooper, Biden said, “You should get into China and get our experts there. We have the best in the world. Get them in so we know what is actually happening. There was no effort to do that.” However, on January 6, the Trump administration began offering to send a CDC team to China, one week after China publicly acknowledged the virus. On January 7, the CDC set up its coronavirus incident management system before the first death was reported and while China was still claiming there was no evidence the virus could spread from human to human. And on January 8, CDC representatives visited Wuhan.

 

5. Trump told governors they were on their own in getting medical equipment

During a CNN town hall, Joe Biden said President Trump told governors they were on their own in getting medical equipment. The problem? That’s not what the president said. Although many liberal news outlets ran with the first half of President Trump’s quote, “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves,” the second half of the quote clearly said, “[The federal government] will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.” Biden knew about the entire quote nine days before he repeated the lie on national television.

 

6. Trump slashed the Centers for Disease Control budget

During an interview on ABC’s “This Week” in early March, Joe Biden asserted. “They’ve cut the — the Centers for Disease Control. They’ve cut the funding for — they’ve tried to cut the funding for NIH, the National Institute of Health.” He recently doubled down on his argument on Twitter. It’s important to note, however, that the Obama administration tried to cut the CDC’s budget five out of its eight years in the White House. In reality, the CDC’s budget is 7% larger now than under President Obama’s final years in office.

 

History proves Joe Biden’s failed pandemic responses. While he likes to tout his leadership with handling the 2014 Ebola crisis for how he would lead the country through COVID-19, many former Obama officials have said Biden was not at the center of the Ebola response. Additionally, during the 2009 H1N1 crisis, administration officials repeatedly had to walk back false or misleading statements Biden gave about the virus. 

 

There is no good reason for Joe Biden to consistently lie to the American public. Perhaps it’s more of his senior moments that prove he has no concept of reality. Or maybe it’s just a failed attempt to stay visible during this crisis.

 

No matter the rationale, Biden continues to remind voters every day that he is unfit to be president.

No matter the rationale, Biden continues to remind voters every day that he is unfit to be president.

Trump is unfit and all of the memes and/or cartoons in the world won't make that untrue.  Maybe you can visit him in a New York prison next year, unless Russia grants him asylum.

Especially if the memes and cartoons are untrue themselves!

 

First meme -  FALSE

The flu death rate is 0.1% (for which the economy has never been shut down).  The coronavirus death rate is 50 times higher at 5.2%.  (Please note that the referenced info is from June and that numbers may fluctuate/change as new information becomes available.  However, no telling when the meme was created.)

 

Second meme -  FALSE

Morgan Freeman advocates wearing masks and has done PSAs stating so.

 

Pretty bad when you have to start fact checking the memes. 🙄

The economy was shut down because of trump’s inaction and incompetence in dealing with and not preventing the spread of the virus...which is ongoing today...stop the virus, the economy will return

206,000 dead, due to trump, not wearing masks and lack of tests 

 

Did Morgan Freeman actually state that, or an unauthorized cut and paste?

Why don't we ask Morgan Freeman?

 

 

Even the tRumPet memes are lies.  Tsk! Tsk!

It's not a secret, I suggest that she visit https://joebiden.com/

Biden DOES have a "magic wand" to stop the tRumpvid20 (nee Covid19) Pandemic - MASKS!

 

The virus is airborne. You get it when someone WITH the disease EXHALES (or spits, coughs, shouts, sings, etc) and someone WITHOUT the disease INHALES the same air.And you have no way of knowing if YOU have the disease without a test, and the results are only "good" until you encounter someone NOT wearing a mask. If you become infected, it will be a MINIMUM of TWO WEEKS when you can transmit the disease to others before you have ANY symptoms - that's called being "pre-symptomatic". OR YOU MAY NEVER SHOW ANY SYMPTOMS and be transmitting the disease to everyone you encounter not wearing masks for MONTHS! - that's called being asymptomatic.

 

There is NO evidence the virus is transmitted by touching a contaminated surface and then touching your face and eating contaminated food does nothing because your digestive process kills the virus. ITS ONLY SPREAD BY PERSON TO PERSON CONTACT, so with a mask mandate, the disease cannot be passed to a new victim.

 

tRump's Covid Celebrations (the Toad calls them "rallies") are proving to be the cause of increased infections in every city they've been held. tRump the Toad DOES NOT CARE - he wants the disease to be rampant until the election so sane people vote absentee while HIS supporters flock unmasked to the polls. Then he will declare victory BEFORE THE ABSENTEE BALLOTS ARE COUNTED, and Republican State legislatures will refuse to count the ballots after midnight 3 Nov 2020 regardless of when they were submitted or when they arrive at the polling place/ county clerk's office.

 

In case you're weak on World History, Hitler did nothing illegal when he seized power in Germany despite having received only 34% of the vote. ToadPOTUS is planning on doing the same thing in America, and his supporters LOVE IT!

@Olderscout66 

 

What's the Biden plan ????  Is it available for voters to read and think about?

 

So HOW does Nominee Biden get everybody to wear a mash when out in a public setting or indoors where social distancing is a problem??

 

How does Nominee Biden get everybody to take the vaccine when it is approved and available??

 

For that matter, how will he, even now as the nominee, get people to take an annual flu vaccine so that we can lessen the possibility of double infection (flu & Covid-19), decrease added deaths just from the flu, or perhaps even prevent some type of merging of the (2) viruses - creating a new bug???

 

What's his plan for keeping businesses afloat - large, medium and small - until we return to some increased level of normalcy??

Details of Biden's plan are at joebiden.org, but the short answer is he will mandate wearing masks in public, enforced with stiff fines for scofflaws.

 

In two weeks when the infection rates plummet, we can open more businesses, but in the meantime, there will be the plan Democrats approved months ago and Republicans will not even consider - a trillion bucks for workers, small businesses and State and local Governments.

 

GOPerLords have ordered their dupes to object to the money for States and local Governments because the Republicans governing cities and States did NOTHING, and will continue to do nothing so they don't need the money (well, perhaps a couple million for body bags). Also if they don't get money for their "public" services, it will be a good excuse for them to privatize everything, just like Toad is doing with the Post Office.

 

The Democratic Governments who have had NO assistance from ToadPOTUS but instead were forced into a bidding war for needed supplies and equipment, maximizing the cost while minimizing the effectiveness of those State and local efforts to combat the Pandemic tRump loosed on America to pump his numbers, need to replace the money they spent unnecessarily because of the bidding wars. It's necessary for them to keep services operating - schools, police, fire protection, road maintenance, etc - all the things Red States don't do because everyone benefits instead of the goodies all going to the top 1%.

Think you better check that joebiden.org address again -  START CHECKING BEFORE YOU POST.

 

It is JoeBiden.com - that 's his official website and where he collects the money.

 

No, his plan for Covid-19 IS NOT THERE - try again.
