Biden’s Press Sec Promised Transparency…IMMEDIATELY STARTED LYING! staff January 22, 2021 Uncategorized You Might Like If worded correctly, someone can make an apple sound like an orange. It’s all in how you are able to construct the lie. Look at the way that Joe Biden has managed to get people on his team that can twist words around to the point that they are making an apple sound like an orange. His new press secretary on day one proved herself to be a total master of double talk in the sense that she is doing everything she can to say as many lies in a one day period as humanly possible. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters in her first briefing Wednesday that newly-inaugurated President Joe Biden had issued an executive order to “put an end to the Muslim ban, a policy written in religious animus and xenophobia.” In so doing, she repeated a false claim that Biden made repeatedly throughout the 2020 presidential election, and which Democrats had made for years as well. There is no “Muslim ban,” and there never was. What Democrats called a “Muslim ban” was an executive order issued on January 27, 2017, that barred tourism and immigration from seven countries previously identified by the Obama-Biden administration as being particularly vulnerable to terrorism, partly because their internal record-keeping was substandard. These seven nations — Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen — happened to be Muslim-majority countries, but there was no blanket ban on Muslims from other Middle Eastern countries or large Muslim countries like Indonesia. Later, the executive order was updated, or superseded, by subsequent orders. A second version dropped Iraq from the list; a third version added North Korea and Venezuela, two countries without substantial Muslim populations whatsoever. The Supreme Court tossed legal challenges to the travel ban in October 2017. Several more countries — including non-Muslim ones — were added in January 2020. The “Muslim ban” exists only in the minds of Democrats and left-wing journalists. In December 2015, then-candidate Trump did suggest “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” He made that suggestion after radical Islamic terrorists launched brutal terror attacks in Paris, France, that November — with at least one hiding among Syrian refugees.
