Stacy McCain takes note that Joe Biden Lies About the Economy
Of course, the headline could have been simplified — “Joe Biden Lies” — because every word out of his mouth is false, no matter the topic, but his lies Friday at Delaware State University were about the economy specifically. The official topic, “Remarks by President Biden on Student Loan Forgiveness,” as the White House web site phrases it, was just a pretext for Biden to engage in electioneering ahead of the midterms. But while we’re on the subject of “Student Loan Forgiveness,” let me remind you that in August, I explained (“Biden’s Illegal Boondoggle Giveaway”) that the President of the United States does not have the authority to order the cancellation of student loan debt, and that the Biden administration is falsely claiming such authority under the 2003 HEROES Act, a measure intended to provide assistance to military personnel deployed overseas during the War on Terror.

Well the election is three weeks away but apparently Morning Joe has decided that things are so bad that there is no point in burring this (via Citizen Free Press) And they are even pointing the finger as to the cause . . . This tells me that they know what’s coming and need to prepare the MSNBC niche market audience that has not been exposed to how bad things are looking. I think it’s a good sign.

"... what other Democrats across the nation are also learning: Crime and the economy are crowding out abortion rights and the former president’s troubles as top of mind issues for voters. The New York governor is responding with a last-minute shift in approach just weeks ahead of the election by promoting her efforts to create jobs and fight crime. 'You deserve to feel safe,' Hochul says in a new TV ad released Saturday as part of a $1 million-plus buy in New York City. 'And as your governor, I won’t stop working until you do. . . . I made a new tag for Lee Zeldin. I will disclose that that represents a bet that he will win. I don't like tag proliferation, but I also don't like needing to go back and add tags to old posts.'"

38-year-old Matthew Bledsoe of Mississippi was found guilty this summer of one felony charge and four misdemeanors. This week he was sentenced to four years in prison. The felony charge dropped on Bledsoe was the same that prosecutors in many other cases have defaulted to: “Obstruction of an Official Proceeding.” The misdemeanors were also typical of these show trials. Of course, the only actual actions that prosecutors could pin on Bledsoe involved scaling a wall and being inside the building for approximately 22 minutes.
