The state of our union is a complete, unmitigated disaster.
The economy is in shambles, the border is two years into the worst migrant influx in U.S. history, taxpayer dollars are flying into the hands of a corrupt Eastern European regime without oversight, and our No. 1 enemy — Red China — has compromised our president, our politicians, our phones, and our skies.
Much as he did in his lie-riddled speech last year, President Joe Biden will likely try to use his State of the Union address to Congress this week to credit himself for helping the nation back onto its feet. In reality, he’s done nothing but subject Americans to more crippling crises that prompt historic levels of disapproval.
In an unprecedented “level of sustained pessimism,” 71 percent of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. Four in 10 Americans, the most in 37 years, told ABC News/Washington Post pollsters they have become financially worse off since Biden took office in January of 2021.
In the last few months, even Democrats have turned on their party leader after seeing his incompetence. Following the 2022 midterm elections, 52 percent of Democrats expressed a desire for Biden to seek reelection in 2024. Days before his address, support for a second Biden term fell to 37 percent among the president’s key voting bloc.
Polls may be a flawed means for gauging the public’s reaction but even without them, it isn’t difficult to see that the Biden regime is an absolute embarrassment from top to bottom.
Here’s what Biden will conveniently fail to mention in Tuesday night’s address.
The Economy Is Not ‘Roaring Back’
Biden will likely spend a good portion of his speech boasting that financial legislation such as the ill-named Inflation Reduction Act passed by the Democrat-controlled Congress is restoring American jobs, wages, and savings and causing inflation to “fall.”
Yet, two years after the president greenlit the beginning of Democrats’ expensive spending spree, Americans are still suffering from gas prices well above $3 per gallon, being gaslit about how Biden didn’t induce a recession, and paying 60 percent more for eggs than they did in 2021.
In 2022 alone, U.S. households lost $6.8 trillion in wealth thanks to record-high inflation that isn’t going away, crashing stocks, and a teetering housing market.
No matter which way Biden, the “experts,” or the corporate media try to spin it, the economy and Americans’ pocketbooks are not roaring back as Biden told Congress they would last year.
The Border Is Getting Worse
One year after he removed the border protections his predecessor enacted, Biden told Congress in his 2022 SOTU address that he wanted to “secure our border.”
Then, the president spent the next 10 months ignoring the rapidly expanding humanitarian and criminal crisis before finally making a performative visit to El Paso in early January.
If history tells us anything, Biden’s 2023 SOTU speech will point to his trip and the new border crossing loopholes he created as “proof” that he’s finally doing something about the millions of illegal border crossers flooding into the United States.
But Biden’s plan to grant “legal” status to illegal border crossers from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela so long as they fly to a port of entry in the U.S. only emboldens corrupt cartels and does nothing to stop the pipeline of fentanyl responsible for taking American lives.
The U.S. Isn’t Tough on China
Biden’s speechwriters will probably credit the downing of Red China’s spy balloon, which completed its mission before it was shot down, as a symbol of the administration’s toughness on our nation’s No. 1 competitor.
What they won’t likely mention is that Biden sold oil from our emergency reserves to his son’s friends at a Chinese state-controlled gas giant before pushing the Saudis into an amicable relationship with the CCP.
Biden may have agreed to ban TikTok from government devices, but that won’t stop House Republicans from getting to the bottom of his family’s financial connections to Red China.
Biden Is Under Investigation for His Failures
Not only will Biden skip over his failures, but you can also expect him to pretend he’s not under investigation by congressional Republicans for various derelictions of duty including failing to secure the border, weaponizing the federal government against its political enemies, and harboring classified documents from his time as a senator and vice president.
Ukraine Is a Taxpayer-Funded Money Pit
Biden opened his 2022 SOTU with a tribute to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and a promise that the U.S. would keep providing support to the Ukrainians in their fight for freedom.
One year and approximately $113 billion U.S. taxpayer dollars later, there is no end to the conflict in sight. Nothing is guaranteed other than Biden’s repeated promise to funnel American tax dollars to Ukraine for “as long as it takes” to stave off Russia.
Instead of ending the conflict, Biden’s overeagerness to get involved in a proxy war Congress hasn’t formally authorized the U.S. to participate in has just increased the threat of nuclear war.
Biden Is No Moderate
Biden spent a good portion of his 2022 SOTU masquerading as a social moderate who wanted to “secure the border” and “fund the police” instead of discuss identity politics.
As evidenced by another year of radical policies and actions like weaponizing the Department of Justice against law-abiding, pro-life Americans such as the recently acquitted Mark Houck and the former president, the Biden administration is far from abstaining from the culture war.
Since this is the first SOTU since the Supreme Court’s landmark Dobbs v. Jackson case, Biden will likely use his speech as a platform to push for abortion on demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy. He might even discuss his administration’s attempts to push back on states that ban mutilative transgender surgeries.
…and He’s Certainly No Unifier
Favorable corporate media coverage predicts that Biden will use his address on Tuesday to call for a “fresh start” and bipartisan cooperation between the GOP-controlled House and Democrat-run Senate. Biden wants to look like he’s Mr. Nice Guy by giving the other side of the aisle a chance to work with him.
But the few times Biden gave formal addresses in 2022, he demonized the half of the country that didn’t vote for him and tried to criminalize the conservative agenda ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. He has no tolerance for House Republicans and certainly has no tolerance for the voters and values those legislators represent.
Simply put, Biden’s track record is indefensibly terrible. It shouldn’t be hard for viewers to look past his inevitable gaffes to see this SOTU will be another unremarkable speech littered with lies and failed promises.
