(PatrioticPost.com)- Fox News host Tucker Carlson went on air to list the biggest liberal lies of 2022. Some are notable, such as Jussie Smollett’s sentencing after he was found to have lied about the alleged “hate crime” against him and the economic gaslighting that came from the White House as the definition of “recession” was changed.
Three lies stood out in Carlson’s monologue, according to Western Journal. The first was the alleged lie that Russian President Vladimir Putin blew up the Nord Stream pipeline, which is the country’s gas supply to Europe. While Carlson was called a Kremlin sympathizer for questioning the predominant narrative, even the Washington Post was forced to admit that there was no evidence Russia sabotaged their pipeline.
In October, a Pentagon insider also said that the United States and Great Britain likely sabotaged the Nord Stream pipelines to prevent Germany from bailing out on Ukraine during its war with Russia after its chancellor said that he was not going to send any more weapons to Ukraine, according to Summit News.
The second biggest lie was that Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of the now-bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX and a “weird, pudgy kid in a t-shirt who played video games during interviews” was somehow the “J.P. Morgan of Crypto.”
While Jim Cramer was reportedly speculating on whether Bankman-Fried was the Vanderbilt of this generation, the exchange was collapsing, causing the crypto industry to lose $200 billion in total market capitalization, according to American Pigeon.
Then there was inflation. The Biden administration initially lied about the state of the economy, dismissing claims that there was ever a recession. The administration, including Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, reportedly told Americans that inflation was “transitory.”
In November 2022, Biden celebrated inflation reaching 7.1%. But that number was down from a high of 9.1%.
