Fact Checks & Reactions: Joe Biden’s Hellish Speech in Pennsylvania (9/1/2022)

Posted by FactReal on September 17, 2022

Below are fact checks and reactions to Biden’s speech on September 1, 2022, in front of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, where he attacked Trump and Make-America-Great-Again (MAGA) Republicans.

But Biden forgot about these little facts:
Democrats not accepting election results
Democrats’ violence, and
Democrats’ extremism.

Biden’s Tyrannical Speech Shows Their Plan:

Thursday night, President Joe Biden declared war on conservatives. On you.

Flanked by U.S. Marines and standing before an ominous blood-red background right out of the Stalin-Hitler playbook, President “Unity” gave his most divisive screed yet, calling “MAGA Republicans” extremists who “embrace anger,” “thrive on chaos,” and live in “the shadow of lies.”

While saying that “equality and democracy are under assault” from the Right and further sowing division in an already severely divided country, Biden called for the nation to come together, as if half the country would simply accept being declared enemies of the state.

Despite Biden’s lies, the true enemy of our Republic is the radical left and its progressive agenda that embraces Big Government, censorship, and political violence. For them, the ends justify the means, and they will stop at nothing to destroy this great country. We’ve seen the lengths they’re willing to go against President Trump. What do you think they’re willing to do to you?

Mia Cathell from Townhall.com:

Nothing screams unity like a backdrop of blood red lighting and Marines positioned behind Biden as he shouts with raised clenched fists from the podium.

Trump’s reaction to Biden’s Speech:

Someone should explain to Joe Biden, slowly but passionately, that MAGA means, as powerfully as mere words can get, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! If he doesn’t want to Make America Great Again, which through words, action, and thought, he doesn’t, then he certainly should not be representing the United States of America!

Trump’s reaction tweeted by Molly Hemingway:

Trump also posted:

If you look at the words and meaning of the awkward and angry Biden speech tonight, he threatened America, including with the possible use of military force. He must be insane, or suffering from late stage dementia!

Mark Levin:


Actually, Biden, you’re among the most violence-promoting politicians ever: abortion up to the last minute before birth; open borders and the horrendous crime that has caused (murder, rape, drug deaths, child molestation, sex trafficking); slashing (“reimagining”) law enforcement resources (until this week, of course) and the record increase in crime, including murder;


2. your war on the Supreme Court (and the Democrat mob threatening the justices); and, the exploitation of very young children with your sexualization agenda in our public schools; etc.


1. Joe Biden doesn’t talk about the genocidal regimes in Red China, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, etc., the way he talks about Republicans or “MAGA Republicans.” He has spent a lifetime as a Washington politician, and has done nothing to advance democracy, liberty, or prosperity in our country.


2. . Among his closest and earliest friends were the most racist segregationists in the Senate, and other contemptible politicians. Biden’s war on the Supreme Court is also unprecedented. His vicious smears and character assassination of the majority of justices who voted in Dobbs is nothing less than a smear of his own religion, which preaches opposition to abortion — as do others.


3. And he is set to declare tonight that those who oppose late term abortion on demand oppose privacy rights, interracial marriage, and contraceptives, another of his libels. Indeed, last week he barked that Republicans want to eliminate Social Security and Medicare. Biden is not just feeble, he is a wicked and vicious political reprobate, who his lied to himself and the public for his entire life.


4. Meanwhile, he and his corrupt family have enriched themselves with foreign money to the tune of millions. Biden is among the worst presidents ever, and he has not even been in office 2-years. His horrific record, and the impoverishment, crime, and dislocation he has created across the nation (indeed, across the world) has harmed the lives of multi-millions.

FactCheck: Biden’s Speech Re: Accepting Election Results (9/1/2022)

Posted by FactReal on September 2, 2022

Yesterday in Philadelphia, Biden said that Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans “refuse to accept the results of a free election.”

BIDEN (Sept. 1, 2022): “I will not stand by and watch elections in this country stolen by people who simply refuse to accept that they lost.”


In January 2022, Biden said that he “easily” believed the 2022 election “could be illegitimate.
More here. Video here and here:

In June 2021, Biden described a Georgia legislation as “Jim Crow 2.0.:

“That legislation “had passed and been signed into law in the state of Georgia through a proper constitutional process — the very constitutional means of self-government he praised to the skies at the beginning of his speech.”

Biden has never denied Stacey Abrams’s preposterous claim that she was the rightful winner of the Georgia governorship in 2018.

In May 2019, Biden said he “absolutely agrees” that Trump is an “illegitimate president.”

In June 2013, Biden said about Al Gore, “This man was elected president of the United States of America.”

China is Buying American Farmland and Houses: Reports

Posted by FactReal on August 2, 2022

Chinese firm bought North Dakota farm near US Air Force drone base: report
Via New York Post: (July 1, 2022)

A Chinese company’s purchase of farmland in North Dakota just down the road from a US Air Force base that houses sensitive drone technology has lawmakers on Capitol Hill worried about potential espionage by Beijing, according to a report.

Fufeng Group, a Shandong, China-based company that specializes in flavor enhancers and sugar substitutes, recently purchased 300 acres of farmland near Grand Forks, North Dakota, a rural area that lies about a 90-minute drive from the Canadian border.

Grand Forks is also 40 miles away from Grafton, North Dakota, where a limited liability company believed to be controlled by billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates recently paid $13 million for thousands of acres of potato farmland, causing a stir among locals.

Three North Dakotans sold the land to Fufeng Group for $2.6 million, according to CNBC.

Chinese company’s purchase of North Dakota farmland raises national security concerns in Washington
Via CNBC: (July 1, 2022)

Chinese food manufacturer Fufeng Group bought 300 acres of land near Grand Forks, North Dakota, to set up a milling plant.

The project is located about 20 minutes from the Grand Forks Air Force Base, raising national security concerns. […]

[T]he buyer of the land was a Chinese company, the Fufeng Group, based in Shandong, China, and the property is just about 20 minutes down the road from Grand Forks Air Force Base — home to some of the nation’s most sensitive military drone technology.

The base is also the home of a new space networking center, which a North Dakota senator said handles “the backbone of all U.S. military communications across the globe.” […]

[I]nside the Air Force, an officer circulated a memo about the project in April, casting it as a national security threat to the United States and alleging that it fits a pattern of Chinese subnational espionage campaigns using commercial economic development projects to get close to Department of Defense installations. The officer, Maj. Jeremy Fox, argued that the Fufeng project is located on a narrow geographic footprint at which passive receiving equipment could intercept sensitive drone and space-based communications to and from the base.

“Some of the most sensitive elements of Grand Forks exist with the digital uplinks and downlinks inherent with unmanned air systems and their interaction with space-based assets,” he wrote. And any such data collection “would present a costly national security risk causing grave damage to United States’ strategic advantages.”

China’s Human Rights Atrocities Exposed

Posted by FactReal on August 2, 2022

The Xinjiang Police Files exposed China’s genocide:
Hacked files reveal Chinese “shoot-to-kill” policy in Uighur detention camps – BBC News
Via BBC News/YouTube: (May 24, 2022)

A huge collection of data including images linked to China’s mistreatment of Uighurs and other ethnic minorities has been handed to the BBC.

The information was hacked from Chinese police computers. It includes evidence of a shoot-to-kill policy for anyone trying to escape from so-called “re-education” camps in the western region of Xinjiang.

Over the past few years more than a million Uighurs are believed to have been detained in the camps and made to undertake forced labour.

China denies claims of torture and carrying out forced sterilisations and abortions. It says claims that Uighurs are being mistreated and made to undertake forced labour are “entirely fabricated”.

Huw Edwards presents a BBC News at Ten special investigation by John Sudworth.

The faces from China’s Uyghur detention camps
“The hacked files contain more than 5,000 police photographs of Uyghurs taken between January and July 2018.”
Via BBC: (May 2022)

Thousands of photographs from the heart of China’s highly secretive system of mass incarceration in Xinjiang, as well as a shoot-to-kill policy for those who try to escape, are among a huge cache of data hacked from police computer servers in the region.

The Xinjiang Police Files, as they’re being called, were passed to the BBC earlier this year. After a months-long effort to investigate and authenticate them, they can be shown to offer significant new insights into the internment of the region’s Uyghurs and other Turkic minorities.

The cache reveals, in unprecedented detail, China’s use of “re-education” camps and formal prisons as two separate but related systems of mass detention for Uyghurs – and seriously calls into question its well-honed public narrative about both.

The documents provide some of the strongest evidence to date for a policy targeting almost any expression of Uyghur identity, culture or Islamic faith – and of a chain of command running all the way up to the Chinese leader, Xi Jinping.

China’s Human Rights Atrocities Exposed
Mark Levin Show: (May 31, 2022)

As US Corporations and sports leagues rush to do more business with China, they ignore the growing evidence of atrocities perpetrated against the Uyghurs detained in China’s death camps. Now, a brave soul has risked his own life to smuggle a treasure trove of secret spreadsheets and photographs out of the country, exposing the depth of China’s inhumanity. But Mark wants to know: Why aren’t we seeing any coverage of this in American Media?

Who are the Uyghurs and why is China being accused of genocide?
Via BBC: (May 24, 2022)

China has been accused of committing crimes against humanity and possibly genocide against the Uyghur population and other mostly-Muslim ethnic groups in the north-western region of Xinjiang.

Human rights groups believe China has detained more than one million Uyghurs against their will over the past few years in a large network of what the state calls “re-education camps”, and sentenced hundreds of thousands to prison terms.

A series of police files obtained by the BBC in 2022 has revealed details of China’s use of these camps and described the routine use of armed officers and the existence of a shoot-to-kill policy for those trying to escape.


Who are the Uyghurs?
There are about 12 million Uyghurs, mostly Muslim, living in Xinjiang, which is officially known as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR).

The Uyghurs speak their own language, which is similar to Turkish, and see themselves as culturally and ethnically close to Central Asian nations. They make up less than half of the Xinjiang population.

Recent decades have seen a mass migration of Han Chinese (China’s ethnic majority) into Xinjiang, allegedly orchestrated by the state to dilute the minority population there.


China forcing birth control on Uighurs to suppress population, report says
Via BBC: (June 29, 2020)

China is forcing women to be sterilised or fitted with contraceptive devices in Xinjiang in an apparent attempt to limit the population of Muslim Uighurs, according to new research.

The report, by China scholar Adrian Zenz, has prompted international calls for the United Nations to investigate.


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on China to “immediately end these horrific practices”.

In a statement, he urged “all nations to join the United States in demanding an end to these dehumanizing abuses”.

China has faced mounting global scrutiny over its treatment of Uighurs in recent years. An investigation by the BBC in 2019 suggested that children in Xinjiang were being systematically separated from their families in an effort to isolate them from their Muslim communities.

What’s in the report?
Mr Zenz’s report was based on a combination of official regional data, policy documents and interviews with ethnic minority women in Xinjiang.

It alleges that Uighur women and other ethnic minorities are being threatened with internment in the camps for refusing to abort pregnancies that exceed birth quotas.

The report also says that Uighur women with more than the legally permitted number of children – but also many women who had not exceeded birth quotas – were involuntarily fitted with intra-uterine devices (IUDs), while others were coerced into receiving sterilisation surgery.

In a statement on Monday, the Interparliamentary Alliance on China (IPAC), an international cross-party group of politicians…[said:] “A body of mounting evidence now exists, alleging mass incarceration, indoctrination, extrajudicial detention, invasive surveillance, forced labor, and the destruction of Uyghur cultural sites, including cemeteries, together with other forms of abuse[.]”
