Who is George Santos (R-NY)?

Permalink 12/28/22 08:45, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: Welcome, Background, History, Politics, Elections

This story is interesting to me because the only reason that we're hearing about Santos lying -- is because he ran as a Republican.

Of course you could say, "Well, this guy is a politician, and all politicians lie." While this is true, it's important to realize that all people lie. The difference is what people lie about, and to whom.

However; I think that this particular incident might be a little different. I think it's possible that Santos is doing this on purpose. I know what you're thinking, "Is OGRE nuts?" I'm just wondering if this guy is doing this to prove a point. Or, should I say, I hope he's doing this to prove a point. It might be Master Level trolling. He can't be brought up on charges for lying, if that were the case nearly all of congress would be behind bars.

Let's dive a little into what Santos has lied about, or at least what he's lied about and been caught.

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) grilled embattled Rep.-elect George Santos (R-NY) about why he fabricated his resume and background, questioning whether the New York Republican “had no shame” while hosting Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday.

Santos has come under fire from members on both sides of the aisle for falsifying information about his education, work history, and family history, with a string of Democratic lawmakers calling for him to step down and one of his GOP colleagues pushing for the House Ethics Committee to launch an investigation into potential violations.

“The thing is, congressman-elect, integrity means, yes, carrying yourself with honor, but it means telling the truth, being a person of integrity, and if I were one of those in New York's third district right now, now that the election is over and and finding out all of these lies that you've told, not just one little lie or one little embellishment, these are blatant lies,” the former Democratic congresswoman, who left the party earlier this year, said.

Santos has lied about the exact things that Joe Biden has lied about. That's the only reason that I think that Santos might be doing this on purpose. The media will never cover the lies that Biden has spouted over the years -- which are too many to keep track of, but they might be forced into it if Santos keeps bringing it up.

Santos attempted to pivot the conversation, alleging that President Joe Biden has “been lying to the American people for 40 years,” before Gabbard clapped back and said it was not a party issue, pressing him on his claims on the campaign trail that he was “a proud American Jew,” which he later walked back, telling the New York Post he is a practicing Catholic, but because of his family's background, identifies as “Jew-ish.”

“I've always identified as Jewish, I was raised in practicing Catholic, I think I've gone through this. Even not being raised a practicing Jew I've always joked with friends and circles, even within the campaign I say, ‘Guys, I'm Jew-ish,” he responded.

Gabbard closed out the interview alleging that Santos has not admitted “the depth of your deception” to his constituents, adding that she found it “hard to imagine how they could possibly trust your explanations.”

One thing is obvious. This guy really triggers Tulsi Gabbard! I'm just not sure why. We know he's lying, he admitted it, but that can't be the only reason that she's excessively worried about it. He mentioned Joe Biden and his lies, and Gabbard refused to go there. I found that a little odd. I know that pointing out Biden's lies would seem like beating a dead horse, but most people who weren't following politics in 1987 wouldn't know about the things Biden has lied about, or the staggering frequency. There's a large part of the voting population that has no idea about Biden being called out by the media in 1987.

Take a look:

As you can see, Biden created quite a few problems for himself in the 80s. But it's amazing how quickly people forget, or in this case, video is suppressed and hidden. This video was on YouTube for years, but was pulled when Biden was running for office.

The first part of an old news report highlights how Biden appeared to use the exact words of Neil Kinnock, a British Labour Party leader.

Comparing the speeches, it is tough to imagine that these two men had the exact same thoughts.

And since Kinnock made his speech before Biden made his, there is no way the Labour Party leader was the plagiarizer.

In fact, Biden admits to using Kinnock’s words in a later clip included in the video.

Later in King’s clip, Biden admits to plagiarizing five pages from someone else when he was in law school without accreditation.

And in the last clip of the video, the former VP claims that he went “to law school on a full academic scholarship,” “ended up in the top half my class” and was the “outstanding student” in the political science department. He also claimed to have graduated with three degrees.

The entire thing was a lie, as he later admitted he did not graduate in the top half of his class, was not named outstanding student and did not attain three degrees.

He went to school on a half scholarship, graduated near the bottom of his class (ranking 76 out of 85) and got only one degree, newscasters relate in the clip.

But that didn't stop Joe Biden did it. He's president now, and he lied about more issues than Santos. I guess it's just who you know.

Santos might be a fruitcake, or just doing what's necessary to get elected, I don't know for sure. But what's the difference really? How many "honest" politicians are elected anywhere? How many of those politicians have held true to the promises they made to the people who elected them? Isn't it just as big of a lie to make promises to voters, and never follow through?

But, some good might come of this. If Santos lies his way into office, and actually does what he says he's going to do, what then?
