In a stunning example of how the entertainment-media complex colludes to disseminate the totalitarian left’s blatantly false messaging, Democrat mega-donor and former entertainer Barbra Streisand took to Twitter on New Year’s Eve to insist that puppet President “Joe Biden’s economic record in his first year is the best in 40 years.”
She added ludicrously, “The media largely ignores this.” Barb’s suggestion that the almost uniformly leftist, sycophantic news media would somehow cover up such an accomplishment, if it were remotely true, is laughable.
The blame isn’t entirely Streisand’s. She was simply echoing one of Biden’s own tweets. On Dec. 29, he or his handlers wrote, “We’re ending 2021 with what one analyst described as the strongest first-year economic track record of any president in the last 50 years. Let’s keep the progress going.”
Biden didn’t identify that “one analyst,” because he or she doesn’t exist. The demonstrable truth is that Biden’s first year has left Americans with skyrocketing inflation, energy prices explicitly aimed at bankrupting the fossil fuel industry, economic “growth” that even the state media functionaries at CNN have labeled “disappointing,” and fears that 2022 will bring even more financial misery for the middle class.
To paraphrase Chico Marx: Who ya gonna believe – Hollywood and the media, or your lyin’ eyes?

In February 2020, Streisand tweeted: “Trump is directly responsible for the hate and discrimination that is growing in this country. And for our children — This is heartbreaking!” Her tweet was in response to a recent Washington Post report about alleged incidents of young children saying things like “build the wall” and “go back to where you came from” to their nonwhite peers. But the Post article provided no statistical evidence whatsoever to back up the claim that such incidents were in fact becoming more common.
In February 2020 as well, Streisand was angered when President Trump, during his address at the National Prayer Breakfast, said of congressional Democrats who self-identified as people of faith: “They love people and sometimes they hate people. I’m sorry. I apologize. I’m trying to learn. … It’s not easy. When they impeach you for nothing and then you’re supposed to like them, it’s not easy folks, I do my best.” Streisand tweeted in response: “It would’ve been so nice to hear President Trump bring people together in bi-partisan fashion at the prayer breakfast. You know, let’s let bygones be bygones and work together to put through infrastructure, healthcare. But no, his insults and vindictiveness always shines through.”
