TRUE Claim by Robert Ortt (R): If New York’s proposed limits on natural gas in buildings take effect, the grid today can’t handle the increased electric load.

Politifact rating: True (A National Grid representative said during a state Senate hearing that the company knows the grid will have to be expanded to be able to provide the amount of electricity required under the state’s plan.)

Electrical grid requires investments if natural gas use decreases

Claim by The Expose: “most of the individuals who had been fully vaccinated would develop full-blown vaccine-induced acquired immunodeficiency syndrome by the end of the month”

Health Feedback rating: Incorrect (Vaccines induce a pathogen-specific immunological memory. The ability of a vaccine to stimulate immunological memory against one pathogen doesn’t tell us about the immune system’s ability to combat other pathogens or diseases. Hence, the alleged lack of effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines wouldn’t mean that the immune system cannot fight back other infections or cancer.)

COVID-19 vaccines don’t cause immunodeficiency and aren’t associated with excess mortality

The Expose Rating

MISLEADING Claim by Joe Biden (D): “For too many decades, we imported projects and exported jobs,” but now “we’re exporting American products and creating American jobs.” rating: Misleading (U.S. imports of goods and services have continued to exceed exports under Biden.)
