Those stories are the good news, but then, there is this, which is simply awful
President Biden and top members of his administration continue to lie to the public about Georgia’s new voting law, which they say suppresses voting in the state.
But don’t take my word for it: Read the Washington Post fact-checker, who concluded that Biden’s claim is so dishonest that it deserves four Pinocchios, which is the worst rating a false claim can get.
“What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work,” Biden told reporters at his first press conference on Mar. 25. The claim, of course, was met with no pushback or scrutiny by the few reporters chosen to ask questions in the room at the time.
“Among the outrageous parts of this new state law, it ends voting hours early so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over,” Biden said in a statement on Mar. 26.
The Post summed up the lie this way:
“One could understand a flub in a news conference. But then this same claim popped up in an official presidential statement. Not a single expert we consulted who has studied the law understood why Biden made this claim, as this was the section of law that expanded early voting for many Georgians,” the analysis reads.
“Somehow Biden managed to turn that expansion into a restriction aimed at working people, calling it ‘among the outrageous parts’ of the law. There’s no evidence that is the case. The president earns Four Pinocchios,” it concludes.
So, one would think the rest of the media would follow suit in condemning the Biden administration for misleading the American public on such a sensitive issue. But instead, they continue to push the “suppression” line.

Major companies, including Delta and Major League Baseball (MLB), have bought into the Biden voting lie as well. In the case of MLB, the league has even gone so far as to move its annual All-Star Game, which generates millions of dollars for the cities that host it every July, out of Atlanta to protest a law that actually expands voting in the Peach State.
Go read it all folks. Frankly, I would like to see the MLB players refuse to play until The president, and these foolish corporations apologize for the reckless disregard of truth, and working Americans
