November 1

The Biden White House put out a tweet crediting “President Biden’s leadership” as the reason that Seniors are getting the biggest increase in their Social Security checks in 10 years. The White House failed to note what is directly responsible for the bump in benefits—namely, high inflation rates. The cost-of-living adjustment is the biggest in over 40 years.

UPDATE: The White House removed the tweet after Twitter added a context note to the tweet which read, “Seniors will receive a large Social Security benefit increase due to the annual cost of living adjustment, which is based on the inflation rate.”

The Washington Post awarded President Biden a “bottomless Pinocchio” rating for repeatedly claiming that he has “spent more time with Xi Jinping (President of China) than any other head of state,” and has traveled “17,000 miles with him.” The Washington Post awards the bottomless Pinocchio rating to statements repeated at least 20 times that are so false they have received either 3 or 4 “pinocchios” on previous occasions. The White House has continued to repeat the claim, even after fact-checkers proved it false.

On November 22, the Biden-Harris administration’s Department of Education announced that they would be once again extending the pause on student loan repayments, possibly until 60 days after June 30. If this were to take place, estimates from the D.C.-based think tank The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget indicate that it would cost upwards of $40 billion.

The Department of Defense published a report that found the Chinese Communist Party used the Biden-Harris administration’s failed withdrawal from Afghanistan to undermine U.S. national security and erode American influence.

The Biden administration dismissed a report by the Department of Defense which had found that the administration’s failed Afghanistan withdrawal was used to undermine the U.S. by the Chinese Communist Party. National Security Council spokesman John Kirby maintained, “Nations like China and Russia took a look at what we did in Afghanistan, and we’ve talked about this many, many times over the last year, and had to marvel at the speed, the efficiency of their effectiveness that very small number… of troops… are able to move that many Afghans safely out of that country.” The remarks indicate a shocking lack of awareness on the part of the administration, or a lack of willingness to acknowledge the foreign policy failure for what it was.
