Senator Mike Lee called POTUS a liar when POTUS said SOME GOPers wanted to cut Social Security, etc.

But who is the REAL liar?

 Go to this link and see him talking about pulling Social Security up by the roots and getting rid of it.

Sen. Rick Scott also wants to mess with Social Security as well. 

(MT Greene called POTUS a liar, but she's the poorly informed member of Congress who's loud, jeering heckling made her look like a howler monkey last night.)

Scott doubles down on sunsetting all federal programs after Biden’s jab 


Trumpers are so confused!

From our favorite Trumpy loving blogger:

"Just watched the WHOLE State of the Union. Gad, he is loathsome. 

 The Right is going to take away Medicare and Social Security! NO IT IS NOT! But, BROTHER, that REALLY scares voters away from the Right. 

 Then that JERK McCarthy remains seated for “Higher salaries for Teachers!” 

 Who would disagree with that? he didn’t even clap. 

 Marjorie Green and Lauren Boebert screamed “LIAR!” at him.. 

 They’re right but I would never do that."

All Little Miss "I'd Never Do That" had to do is Google Mike Lee's and Rick Scott's positions on getting rid of/sunsetting Social Security and other safety net programs. 

But Trumpers stay in their comfortable, fact-free bubbles and then are gobsmacked when they hear the truth!

Well, well. A week after the Republicans tried to cage Democrats into denouncing "socialism", Biden used political jiu jitsu and got them to stand up for socialist Medicare and Social Security.

The Cult of Howling Baboons on meth was outwitted and outplayed by an old man with "dementia".

When is this country going to learn to reject Republicans and stop voting them in majority, or in office at all?

skudrunner said...

So one representative is for ending SS and Medicare and another says we need to look at changing it. Most of what Lieden said was not the truth but it is politics and we all expect that from a president. SS and Medicare does need to be revamped to reflect current times but it is such a hot button that everyone runs for admitting it is not sustainable since LBJ moved the funds to the general fund. The most hideous thing any representative has done is rip up the speech given to her by a president even if she could not stand him That is the essence of now class and she should have been censored for it instead of congratulated. Did green go off the rails, yes but you have to call a lie on a liar maybe just not then. Gas companies make a good profit bit not as much as they are taxed and pharmaceutical companies are the reason vaccines are made to save lives.

I am all for taxing the rich because most of the are the democrat elite and the idea that no one making less than 400k will not pay one penny more in taxes is a joke, inflation is a tax that even the poor pay. How is he going to pay for all the give away, not from the 59% who pay taxes now. Where is the outrage on curbing illegals and stopping all the fentanyl crossing the border.
Nope ignored and what about the medical crisis in Yuma due to all the illegals.

Have you had your coffee yet this morning skud?

skud A simple search would have shown you that is wasn't ONE GOPer who wanted to sunset/get rid of Social Security. It was THREE United States Senators, all Trumpublicans:

Mike Lee, Rick Scott, and Ron Johnson. They all said Social Security should be sunsetted/or pulled out by its roots. Joe Biden did not lie. That repulsive woman from Georgia, who is an embarrassment to our country, is the liar.

Get over what Nancy Pelosi did. It didn't come close to the disrespect and effrontery of what Greene and Boebert did. Nancy Pelosi did not yell LIAR! at Trumpy while he gave his SOTUS. While I do not agree with what she did, she did not break any law, nor did she interrupt Trumpy with shouts and name-calling.

You excuse Greene and said "you have to call a liar a liar." That's how juveniles behave, not members of Congress. Greene is a half-witted clown, stupid and trashy, so we're not at all surprised that she behaves the way she does. It's surprising, though, that so many people who otherwise should know better, admire her loutish behavior.

PS. President Biden did what ALL presidents do in the SOTU. He embellished his accomplishments and exaggerated some of them as well. But screaming LIAR! at the POTUS was unconscionable. What Greene and the other troglodytes in the Trumpublican party did was set an example to young people on how to behave like a howler monkey. She is being ridiculed for her contemptible stunts and has been mocked all over social media for her boorish behavior.

If she thinks that's putting a feather in her cap, she needs to think again. Her behavior was not the "own" on Pres. Biden that she thought it was.

Shaw Kenawe said...

skud When you only listen to news in your bubble, you miss a lot. This is what that dimwitted woman, Greene, doesn't know:

"Senator Rick Scott introduced a plan that would sunset Social Security and Medicare every five years unless Congress votes them back into existence.

Senator Ron Johnson thinks five years is too long to wait. He wants to put the funding for Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block every single year.

Senator Lindsey Graham suggested raising the age for Social Security and cutting benefits for seniors while making them pay more.

Senator Mike Lee stated it is his objective to “phase out Social Security, to pull it up by the roots, and get rid of it.”

In the House – many members, including those who chair committees – have proposed cuts to Medicare and Social Security in exchange for preventing a default on our debts.

The Republican Study Committee released a budget that calls for privatizing Social Security and raising the eligibility ages for Social Security and Medicare.

If Republicans in Congress don’t want to cut Social Security and Medicare, they should propose a budget that reflects it. Until then, all they’ve got is their record.

MTG is unable to think... merely believes...

Remember her gazpacho police?...Peach Tree dish?...Jewish space lasers?...Saying 9/11 was fake?...Supported the insurectionists?...Speaking at a white supremacist convention with Nick Fuentes a guy who says Nazis are good?

She's a living, breathing piece of crap, and represents the Republican Party perfectly.

Les Only Mitt Romney spoke out about Santos, and did it to his lying face.

The current leadership of the GOP are all sniveling cowards.

Dave Dubya said...

Good ol’ Skud, He sounds like he’s auditioning for FOX(R).

“Most of what Lieden said was not the truth”

He can’t prove his accusation with evidence. But we already knew that.

I’m just going to call this a lie, since Skud is over his head in right-wing partisan dogma instead of immersed in facts.

Let’s look at his other falsehoods and lack of perspective.

It seems Skud agrees with MTG’s howl “liar”, if not her timing. Biden was telling the truth at the time, as Shaw has proven.

How is that rudeness NOT more hideous than tearing paper? Only Skud knows for certain.

Civility and basic politeness are not conservative traits anymore.

“The most hideous thing any representative has done is rip up the speech.”

Maybe I’m just a snowflake, but I’m going to suggest tweeting “Today is 1776”, and the movement of the woman who tore the paper, on 1/6 is far more hideous, treasonous and dangerous.

WTF, Skud?

We’ve been through this one before: ”LBJ moved the funds to the general fund.”

I expect Skud to ignore the facts again, but here they are:


Les Carpenter said...

There are few republicans left in congress with the integrity to speak out against liars like Santos and tRump. The republican party leadership is a group of misguided, often clueless weaklings that prefer lies and conspiracy over truth and reality.

With luck the damn party will implode someday.

skudrunner said...


He stated he reduced the deficit when in fact he raised the national debt by 4.2 trillion dollars in his first two years

He inherited an economy in free fall when in truth the second half of 2020 saw a more than 20% rise

Inflation was high when he took office when in fact it was 2% when he took over and he was successful to increase that by 7%

Brought down gas prices, even someone like you knows that is a total lie

Doing all he can to control the border when he reversed the previous stay in mexico policy opening the border to 2 million immigrants who are free to roam the country.

Increased oil production by restriction drilling on federal land and shutting down the pipeline, how does that work?

I will give him credit for attacking those pesky resort fees which costs billions.

Shaw Kenawe said...

SKUD: "Doing all he can to control the border when he reversed the previous stay in mexico policy opening the border to 2 million immigrants who are free to roam the country."

Border policies under Biden and Trump are similar

"Immigration policies at the border under Biden and Trump have stayed largely the same. Border authorities are still enforcing immigration laws; immigrants continue to be expelled, detained or allowed into the country if they pass officials’ initial screenings.

CBP data shows that Border Patrol agents recorded more than 2.2 million encounters with migrants at the southwest border in fiscal year 2022, which ended in September. But that doesn’t mean that 2.2 million people entered the country. That’s because the data counts events, not individuals. For example, a Border Patrol agent could have encountered the same person three times.

Administration is repairing border barriers, adding detection technology
Although Biden has not added more miles of border barriers, his administration has provided funding to reinforce existing barriers and add specialized technology at the border.

Biden in January 2021 signed a proclamation to pause barrier construction at the southwest border. But he has not ordered the dismantling of existing border barriers completed under Trump or any other administration.

Immigrant encounters have drastically increased over the past two years, but not because of funding or staffing cuts.

The budgets for border security under the Biden administration are comparable to those under Trump. Border Patrol staffing has remained fairly consistent despite long-term hiring and retention challenges. And border laws and policies to prevent immigrants from remaining in the U.S. continue to be enforced under Biden’s presidency.

The Biden administration stopped building additional miles of barriers at the southwest border; however, Biden did not order a dismantling of the barriers built under Trump or other administrations. Biden’s administration has used previously appropriated funds to repair barriers and close gaps that have become popular areas for immigrants to cross into the U.S.

We rate this claim False."

skudrunner said...

Sorry Ms Shaw but according to NBC news Migrant border crossings in fiscal year 2022 topped 2.76 million. The number of undocumented immigrant crossings at the southwest border for fiscal year 2022 topped 2.76 million, breaking the previous annual record by more than 1 million, according to Customs and Border Protection data.

I do appreciate your providing the link to the WP article because it further provides proof of his lying, Dube take notice I provided proof thanks to Ms. Shaw.

Don't know where you got your data but according to the very left NBC you are not correct. Regarding his other statements. 12 million new jobs even the labor dept says it is 2 million. The article you referenced said biden started with an economy moving forward not a disaster like he said. Imports are up and so is the trade deficit up 45% since he took office.
Biden misleadingly claims to have lowered the deficit by a huge amount even though his policies have added significantly to the national debt.

Not even the person who wrote the plan that Biden referenced says he supports a “sunset” of the old-age programs so his claim republicans want to get rid of SS and MC

Great article Ms. Shaw proving whet I said was correct and since you provided it it must be true. Who would doubt the Washington Post.

It won't be luck, Les. The party will be deemed illegal by its own actions catching up to them. The GOP is unofficially a terrorist group. Their bigly stupid actions will expose them for the extremely dangerous terrorists they really are.

While I disagree with green shouting during the great biden lie the leftists should be embarrassed about their entire party. We have AOC and tlaib going off on how it is racist to remove three representatives from committees when only one was black who married her brother, one jew and one pillow whisperer to a spy. Of course they are not real bright to fall for vote for it before you see it and they did.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Anon @3:31PM

Skud has posted that unproved piece of gossip here, too. Here is the politics editor of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, whose team investigated the allegations:

"Since the article came out, no one has come forward with smoking-gun, decisive proof that would make it look like we missed something. You see circumstantial evidence that begs for some kind of explanation from a member of Congress, but there’s no smoking gun that she married her brother."

Of course facts and proofs don't matter to skud and his pals on the Trumper blogs. They deal in gossip, innuendo, and outright lies.

Last summer/fall a rumor came out about a certain US Rep from a western state. The rumor was that she had been a call girl/escort. I didn't post any of that nor did I go running to leftie blogs and spread the rumor -- and that's ALL IT IS! A rumor that the lefties had spread, without proof. I'm no fan of this female US Rep., but, unlike skud and his fellow Trumpers, there's no reason to post about these rumors and gossip, unless you're motivated to do harm to people.

What other conclusion can one make?

I don't think skud knows Rep. Omar personally, so why would he want to besmirch her reputation with unproved rumors about who she married or didn't marry? I wish he would answer that simple question.

Dave Dubya said...

Wow. Skud may not be a racist, but he sure knows what to say to fit in with them.

And even IF that person slept with a spy, he was found to do NOTHING wrong. When he learned who she was that was the end of her game. Contrast that with Trump giving top secrets to Russians in the Oval Office. Contrast that with a gang of Republicans spending the 4th of July in Moscow.

Compare the dem reps to Boebert, who tweeted "Today is 1776" and the movement of Pelosi on 1/6.
And this gem of theocratic ignorance:
“The church is supposed to direct the government. The government is not supposed to direct the church. That is not how our Founding Fathers intended it. I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk that’s not in the Constitution. It was in a stinking letter, and it means nothing like what they say it does.”

And Greene:
Her ad called Ilhan Omar, Maxine Waters, Ayanna Pressley, Adam Schiff, Joe Biden, Rashida Tlaib, Nancy Pelosi, AOC, and Elizabeth Warren, “Communist Democrats who hate America, hate God, and hate our way of life.”

"I am not going to mince words with you all. Democrats want Republicans dead and they have already started the killings."

On 1/6:"I want to tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won," the congresswoman said. "Not to mention, we would've been armed."

And Gohmert, and Gosasr, and Jorden, ad nauseum

The problem is the radical has NO SHAME. Nothing embarrasses them but losing an election, so they deny that too.

No shame whatsoever. No basic human decency and no honesty either. Just hate and lies.

Does Skud know what the logical fallacy "false equivalence" even means?
