This year’s State of the Union address was the worst I’ve ever seen. Hands down.
The president tried to downplay his approval ratings, of lack of approval I should say. Still, his incompetence was on full display. And his promises to do better in 2022 mean nothing. I don’t know what speech writer thought to add that little phrase, but it’s an empty promise. Biden’s lost his mental faculties long ago. He knows not what he says.
Here are the 10 lies that stand out the most.
Let’s just start with Russia.
Just a few days ago, Biden warned that sanctions would do very little to influence the situation in Ukraine. At the SOTU, Biden claimed that he leveraged “powerful punishments” that brought Putin to his knees.
This next one is downright hilarious. At one point, Biden promised to be Honest Abe.
Let’s get Maury Povich in on this, because I believe that’s a lie.
Well, that’s a lie…
“To all Americans, I will be honest with you, as I’ve always promised.” – Joe Biden

- The Federalist also notes that Biden repeated the popular lie that former President Donald Trump’s tax cuts helped only the rich even though they actually increased worker earnings and opened up job opportunities across the board.
His false claim earned a round of boos from the Democrat politicians in the audience who were eager for a chance to take a jab at Trump.
Here’s a good one. Biden claims he created lots of jobs.
Apparently, he missed the memo were half of America was out of work. On lockdown. Quarantined. Getting out of quarantine and going BACK to your old job isn’t growth. It’s returning to work.
Speaking of growth, Biden believes we’re seeing economic growth.
(Again, does this man go to the grocery store? Clearly not.)
‘Our Economy Roared Back Faster Than Almost Anyone Predicted’
Biden claimed that “our economy roared back fast than anyone predicted,” but as average Americans suffer the consequences of a prolonged supply-chain crisis and inflation, it’s clear that the price hikes once touted by the administration as short-term are here to stay for a while.
My Tax Plan Will Lower Costs and the Deficit
“My plan to fight inflation will lower your costs and lower the deficit,” Biden claimed.
The truth is, however, that Biden’s tax plan would “result in a net increase in the deficit totaling $367 billion over the 2022-2031 period, not counting any additional revenue that may be generated by additional funding for tax enforcement,” according to the Congressional Budget Office.
No More Taxes!
Biden also repeated one of his favorite falsehoods that anyone making less than $400,000 a year doesn’t have to pay any more in taxes. Experts, however, agree that his promise not to raise taxes on those making less than $400,000 a year is ambitious and not realistic because those who fall below the mark are still subject to consequences from a highly taxed economy.
Biden just repeated the lie that no one making less than $400,000 will pay “a penny more” in taxes.
Buddy, we’re all paying the tax of inflation. #SOTU

Biden also promised to lower the cost of insulin!
“Biden called for lower insulin prices amid what he said is a drug price crisis. What the president didn’t acknowledge, however, is that he undid a rule enacted by Trump that effectively lowered insulin and epinephrine prices for Americans.” Obviously, the proof is in the pudding here. Biden’s raised the cost of my medications so high, I have no idea how to afford them on a month-to-month basis.
Joe Biden is the one who raised the price of insulin after Trump lowered it.
Unlike you, we have our minds and can still remember things, Joe.
Give the lies a rest. #SOTU

‘We Need to Secure Our Border’
“Biden said he wants to secure the southern border and that he’s taking swift action to do so. The truth is, however, that more than 100,000 illegal migrants are crossing the U.S.-Mexico border each month after the administration touted open borders and overlooked the humanitarian crisis for more than a year.
Biden not only started his presidency by stripping border protections enacted by Trump but welcomed illegal migrants with open arms. As a result, Border Patrol encountered at least 2 million illegal aliens at the southern border in 2021 alone and are expected to encounter even more in 2022. Many of these illegal aliens were released into the U.S. with loose instructions to report to ICE facilities but didn’t.”
Here’s a little news from a Texas girl. If Biden wanted to secure our border, all he had to do was continue the plan Trump laid out. Now we can’t get materials fast enough to manufacture these goods everyone seems to want.[smartslider3 slider=13]
- To me, this is the most outrageous claim I heard all night. Especially after listening through the babbles and pauses that make him sound like a 4th grader giving his first public speech, with a bunch of college words he doesn’t quite pronounce just yet. If you wonder why I’m stalling, it’s hard to even write this next sentence.
Abortion Is Health Care
“If we want to go forward — not backward — we must protect access to health care. Preserve a woman’s right to choose,” Biden claimed during his speech.
Killing babies in the womb, however, is not health care. Not only does the heinous act take the life of an unborn child, but it has detrimental effects on women’s physical and mental health.
To be honest, this barely scratches the surface. Biden’s lies are worse than Pinocchio’s. Ten more minutes analyzing that speech would likely yield ten more lies lickety split. But there’s only so much Biden I can take in one day. And today, I’m well over the limit.
