On Wednesday, President Joe Biden was asked, during a very rare press conference, if the 2022 midterm elections might be illegitimate. His response brought a sharp blowback from critics.
“Well, it all depends on whether or not we’re able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election,” Biden responded, referring to election integrity laws that have been passed, signed into law, and implemented by red states.
Biden was right, but I don’t think he has the cognitive ability to know why, because he wasn’t right for the bullschtein he and his lying brethren have been feeding the American people on this subject. The Republican states did make changes to alter the outcome of the 2022 midterm elections. They now believe that their elections will be free and fair. The election integrity laws put into place in all 20 states that have implemented them make it easier for everyone to vote and harder for people to cheat.
Biden will tell you that the election integrity laws are taking away the right to vote and that’s because he is a born liar. No Democrat can point to any provision in any of the 20 states’ election integrity laws and definitively claim it suppresses anyone from voting. It’s just not there.
“Well, I think if, in fact — no matter how hard they make it for minorities to vote, I think you’re going to see them willing to stand in line and — and defy the attempt to keep them from being able to vote,” Biden said. “I think you’re going to see the people who they’re trying to keep from being able to show up, showing up and making the sacrifice that needs to make in order to change the law back to what it should be.”
That is a blatant lie, and Biden knows it. Even Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) admitted that we already have laws on the books that protect the right of people to vote.
By the way, it was Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) who killed Biden’s chance to rig all future elections for Democrats. That’s what the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act was going to do if passed. I think the Democrats should be ashamed of themselves for soiling the name of a much respected Civil Rights leader by attaching his name to a bill that wanted to throw out election laws from all 50 states and replace them with election laws written by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
Here is the Democrat argument. We need to remove the filibuster so that we can put in legislation that will protect the minority.
But they are lying. Here’s the correct translation: We need to remove the filibuster, which was put into place to protect the minority, so that we can put in legislation that will protect our chances of cheating.
Sometime later in the presser a reporter asked a followup question about Biden’s argument of the legitimacy of the 2022 elections.
“I just wanted to clarify: A moment ago, you were asked whether or not you believed that we would have free and fair elections in 2022 if some of these state legislatures reformed their voting protocols. You said that it depends,” the reporter said, before asking, “Do you — do you think that they would in any way be illegitimate?”
“Oh, yeah, I think it easily could be — be illegitimate,” Biden replied. “Imagine — imagine if, in fact, Trump had succeeded in convincing Pence to not count the votes.”
This coming from a man where half the voting public still believes he stole the White House from President Donald Trump.
Isn’t it amazing how Democrats told us that 2016 was an illegitimate election because Hillary Clinton created a phony story about Trump-Russian collusion that they all bought into? Then they told us that 2020 was the cleanest, most legitimate election we have ever had, even though there are mountains of evidence and whistleblower testimony that it was the single most-rigged and corrupt election in our country’s history. So, after the cleanest election ever, Democrats are now worried that red states are going to suppress people from voting? Please…
The reporter tried to get the president to focus like a laser beam on the 2022 midterm elections.
Biden responded, “Oh, 2022. I mean, imagine if those attempts to say that the count was not legit.”
“I mean, sure, but — I’m not going to say it’s going to be legit,” President Biden said of the 2022 midterm elections.
I have never in all of my life seen a president search for the correct words to use like this one. That happens when the person speaking knows he is lying and wants to choose his words carefully so that he won’t get hammered on them later on.
“The increase and the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these — these reforms passed,” Biden said.
Another bald-faced lie from the POTUS. There is nothing in the election integrity laws that harms anyone’s chances of getting to vote.
“But I don’t think you’re going to see — you’re not going to see me and I don’t think you’re going to see the Democratic Party give up on coming back and assuming that the attempt fails today,” Biden said.

Republicans blasted Biden for making accusations that the upcoming midterm elections could be illegitimate. A good number of them reminded everyone that former President Trump was attacked by the media and the very same Democrats saying it now, when he questioned the results of the 2020 election.
Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) said, “I think it was shocking, to be honest with you. Just shocking. To have the president of the United States trying to undermine the results of an election before there’s actually an election is a stunning manifestation.”
I know Democrats would claim Trump did the same thing, but he really didn’t. Trump complained that the Democrats were sending out millions and millions of mail-in ballots and that no one knew who was getting them. According to former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker who did a report back in 2005 on elections, mail-in voting is the worst idea anyone could come up with.
“Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud,” stated the 2005 report by a commission co-chaired by Carter and James Baker III.
Democrats would hold Carter under the bath water if he continued to say that today.
Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel blasted Biden over his words.
“In the same press conference, Biden continued to baselessly smear election integrity provisions, and then signaled to Putin that a ‘minor incursion’ into Ukraine is ok.

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) also took to social media to give a piece of his mind on what Biden did.
“Joe Biden dangerously claiming results of 2022 elections will be illegitimate unless Congress passes his election power grab.”

Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) said to Fox News, “It’s unfortunate. As you know, the Democrats have been highly critical of those Republicans who refused to accept the results of the last election and use the word ‘rigged’ to say that elections weren’t fair. They’re using the exact same language and casting doubt on elections. It’s irresponsible.”
A reporter asked Senator Manchin, “There are a lot of people out there who are saying that you’re making it so that they’re not going to be able to vote in the next election?”
Manchin replied, “The law’s there. The rules are there. And basically, the government. The government will stand behind them and make sure they have the right to vote. We have that. The things they’re talking about now are in court. Marc Elias has an awful lot in court. The courts have struck down, like in Ohio, they struck down the gerrymandering. Things are happening, okay. We act like we’re going to obstruct people from voting. That’s not going to happen.”
Very Jake Tapper of CNN who seems lately to be endeavoring to appear like a real journalist again, said, “And quite strikingly, the president said that the upcoming midterm elections might not be legitimate if the election reform bills before the Senate are not passed. … President Biden just said, with Donald Trump’s history when it comes to the big lie on the elections, but he refused to say that the election results this midterm — in these midterms in November would be legitimate. He refused it.”
CNN Chief National Correspondent John King said, “It is striking to hear an American president not named Donald Trump raise questions about the legitimacy and sanctity of our democracy.”
On Thursday, White House mouthpiece Jen Psaki fought to get back control of Biden’s lying narrative.
“Let’s be clear: @potus was not casting doubt on the legitimacy of the 2022 election. He was making the opposite point: In 2020, a record number of voters turned out in the face of a pandemic, and election officials made sure they could vote and have those votes counted.”

What a liar. Biden was absolutely casting doubt on the legitimacy of the 2022 midterm elections because the Democrats know they are going to be routed at the polls. It’s going to be a political bloodbath, which is why they have been trying to rig elections before the midterms.
Back in 2020 and early 2021, I posted a video that was taken by whistleblowers in my home state of Pennsylvania of voter rolls for people who voted. An enormous amount of people who voted in the 2020 election were born in the late 1800s, some in the first decade of the 20th century. Election integrity laws will purge people who have been dead for over 50 years from voter rolls, dooming that very popular Democrat demographic. That is what election integrity laws are doing. Democratic Party operatives use the identities of dead people and people who moved out of their states to vote using their identities. They have been doing this for decades. Voter ID laws make that extremely difficult to do.
