HE LIED, HE LIED, HE LIED.

I tell myself when writing a weekly blog, stay away from both religion and politics. Particularly the latter.


Oh dear, this Sunday morning I hit my favorite news outlet to discover an article by Canadian Daniel Dale, now working for the CNN. It began with: ‘This President is a serial liar’.


Well, well, we knew that. Dale, who made a name for himself here by picking out misinformation, is doing the same for CNN. With such a headline staring me in the face, how could I not pass along some of those lies Dale has earmarked for us to ruminate over.


-- Donald J. Trump says Joe Biden is taking down the Border wall. When in fact Biden said he’ll stop further additional construction.


-- Trump claimed he was the one who passed the Veterans Choice law when Barack Obama signed it into law in 2014. Trump signed a law modifying it in 2018.


-- Dale tells us Trump touted a nine million job gain over the past three months, not mentioning that gain follows a record 22 million job loss over the previous two months.


-- Trump said they opened a Jerusalem embassy for $500,000 when it was over 22 million.


-- He claimed again that he banned travel from China and Europe. No, says Dale, he imposed partial restrictions.


Author’s comment: There’s a heck of a lot more about Trump bending the facts – like him saying that Biden will confiscate guns when Joe Biden is running on a non-mandatory buyback of so called assault weapons. Heard enough? Me too. We’ll put a -30- to that.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE IT? OH yEAH.

There is nothing that bugs me more than reading how to put things together. Often in LARGE LETTERS as a warning to do the right things. IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS come with instructions telling you when usi
