AMAC Exclusive – By Shane Harris

Biden’s State of the Union Address next week will be perhaps the most pivotal moment of his presidency thus far – and likely the most detached from reality. Here’s what you can expect from the Tuesday night speech and what to keep your eye on as Biden takes the stage.

Biden’s “Bipartisan Pivot”

During Biden’s State of the Union, viewers can expect the president to make plenty of vague overtures to “working across the aisle” and “finding common ground.” Biden will claim that he “stands ready to work with Speaker McCarthy,” and will almost certainly mention his old Senate colleague Mitch McConnell.

However, Republicans should not fall for the charade. As AMAC Newsline has previously reported, following Republicans’ victory in U.S. House elections last November, the Biden team has been laying the groundwork for an attempted “bipartisan pivot”—in name only. The first signs of this political strategy emerged with Biden’s sudden rhetorical about-face on the border earlier this year, with the president issuing a rare public address from the White House stressing the importance of border security – even as his administration aggressively implemented policies that will make the border crisis even worse.

While the rhetoric of Biden’s State of the Union will be a complete 180 from Biden’s promise in 2020 that he will be the “most progressive” president in history, the policy substance of the next two years of the Biden presidency will likely remain the same.

Americans, as well as elected Republicans, should also remember that, no matter how much Biden talks about “unity,” this is the same president who slandered Trump voters as “semi-fascists,” used the FBI to target upset parents with “domestic terrorist threat tags,” and threatened to withhold funding for school lunch programs in order to force districts to adopt left-wing transgender bathroom policies, among a litany of other divisive acts.

Beware the Media Spin

Biden’s biggest ally in rebranding himself as a great bipartisan president will be the mainstream media. When it comes to the policy proposals in Biden’s speech, the media narrative will be that Biden extended the hand of bipartisanship, and that Republicans are guilty of “obstructionism” if they do not embrace the entire Democrat agenda.

For instance, on the border, Biden will likely continue to call for “comprehensive immigration reform” – which is Democrat code for mass amnesty and a host of other left-wing immigration policies. In other words, Biden will insist that he’s willing to take minimal steps to secure some parts of the border, just so long as Republicans vote in favor of giving mass amnesty to the tens of millions of people already in the country illegally, thus further encouraging more illegal immigration.

When Republicans rightly refuse, the media will assert that it is Republicans who are being “unreasonable.”

More Blame Game for Shameful Record of Failure

One truly has to pity Biden’s speechwriters when it comes to finding new excuses for the ever-increasing number of disasters under Biden’s watch.

In some cases, Biden will likely pretend that problems simply don’t exist – his only way to talk around how bad some things have gotten is to weave a false reality. When it comes to the economy, the speech will likely focus on the few metrics that are promising, like strong jobs numbers (largely thanks to the foundation laid by the Trump administration) while ignoring or minimizing the sagging stock market, persistently high inflation, and broad pessimism among the American people about the country’s financial outlook.

In other instances, where denying that a crisis exists is no longer an option, Biden will blame everyone but himself. Even though he explicitly promised an open border during his 2020 campaign, Biden will continue to blame “partisan gridlock” for the catastrophe, falsely claiming that he is trying to secure the border and being blocked by Republicans. He may also accuse Republicans of being responsible for things like “gun violence,” even though it is soft-on-crime Democrat policies and prosecutors, as well as the left’s war on police, that have directly led to a surge in violent crime.

Biden may even try to spin some of his failures as successes, much as he attempted to do with the botched Afghanistan withdrawal. For instance, Biden will likely claim that the war in Ukraine has been a rousing success, while in reality the Biden administration knew for months prior to the invasion that the Russians were mobilizing, still failed to effectively deter the attack, and has continually escalated the conflict without leveling with the American public about the true risks of his actions.

Hints for 2024

In addition to providing a glimpse at what to expect when it comes to policy, Biden’s address will likely be a key indicator of his plans for 2024. While the president has dropped a number of hints that he plans on making another bid for the White House, he has not officially announced. If he does want to run again, his State of the Union will be the perfect opportunity to convey why the country – and the Democratic Party – needs him in particular for another four years.

The reaction of the media and other Democrats to Biden’s speech will also provide a great deal of insight into how the liberal establishment views a potential Biden 2024 run. While they will undoubtedly laud the substance of Biden’s speech, what remains to be seen is whether or not they will use the speech to make the explicit case that Biden can and should run again.

If the media and other elected Democrats remain focused only on the substance of the speech, rather than looking ahead to 2024, it could be an early sign that some within the party are hesitant about fully embracing another Biden run. Any mention of words like “tired,” “old,” and “frail” would be even more explicit indicators that the Democrat establishment is ready to push Biden out.

Americans likely will not be able to take much of Biden’s State of the Union at face value. But there nonetheless will be much they can glean from the speech about both the direction of the country and what important political developments may be just around the corner.

The Biden administration is anti- American. Period. Every action, to date, has been to undermine the American people. Historians will look back at this time and wonder how all this was allowed to take place without impeachment.

Addle-brained Biden has been a buffoon and an embarrassment for our country from Day One. Thank God we’re better than halfway done with his and his administration’s lunacy. We are already too badly damaged for our country to completely undo the havoc that has been created in such a short time by the present USA-hating agenda. Please God, Bless the America that our sane citizens still love!

Here’s how the SOTU will play out:

No matter what Joe Biden actually says, the MSM will all circle round the President and claim it was a visionary speech. Showing that the Democrats have “a positive vision for the future of the country”. The usual BS the MSM always issues when its a Democrat President giving the SOTU speech. Their so-called unbiased “analysis” of Biden’s SOTU message has already been written for them by the DNC. You can switch between different channels afterwards and see them all using the same phrases and responses on every network. The vast majority of sheep in this country will of course eat it up. The next day, the Democrats will go right back to their plan to ease Joe Biden out the door ahead of the 2024 elections.

The Republican response to the SOTU speech will be universally panned by the same MSM. Again, their comments have already been written for them by the DNC and you’ll see, once again, virtually every MSM network using the same phrases and choreographed responses to describe it. Again, the vast majority of the sheep in this country will eat it up and believe every word the MSM speaks.

As to what most Americans can glean from this upcoming SOTU speech, the answer is NOTHING. Seriously! Remember, Joe Biden doesn’t write his own speeches. They are all written for him by staffers in the White House, who have been given direction by those managing Biden. The upcoming SOTU is simply constitutionally mandated theater as far as the Democrats are concerned. What is actually going to occur over the next two years of this administration is very likely to be exactly what we’ve experienced over the last two years of this administration. More intentional foreign policy “blunders”. Our southern border will continue to be wide-open with most Democrat politicians calling for faster processing of the illegals streaming in, but at the same time demanding more federal aid to the Democrat cities and states where relatively few show up. All while ignoring the hundreds of thousands or millions being intentionally flooded into Republican states around the country. More regressive economic policies thanks to all the new and expanded taxes and regulations passed in last year’s climate change and taxation bill (the so-called Inflation Reduction Act that had NOTHING to do with reducing inflation) and the continued decline of the standard of living for most Americans.

So all in all, the SOTU is really a non-event interms of an honest analysis of the state of our nation. Instead what we will be treated to is simply another prime time Democrat propaganda special. There are many other more productive things once can do than listen to our senile commander in chief drone on about his imaginary accomplishments. Accomplishments that only exist in his addled mind.

I honestly don’t care to watch. He lies, tries to blame others for his failures, makes up stories and dwells on issues that most Americans see as trivial. He will boast about job numbers but will fail to mention no one is applying for the jobs. He will condemn the killing of Tyre Nichols but say nothing about all the police officers killed in the line of duty. He will say the southern border is secure and ignore the fentanyl crisis. He won’t admit to wasteful spending and he will continue to push for more handouts. Anyone watching will be counting the gaffes. Sorry, but to sit and watch all that is more than my blood pressure can handle.

Speaking of the media. When will AMAC finally have its own network? I would like to see that happen in a few years. I have ROKU and they have many channels available to subscribers. I think AMAC can be ahead of AARP with many more ways to show the benefits of AMAC.

Biden is definitely a Chinese agent!! He allowed the balloon to go all across this country so China could get the pictures they need before he decided it was time to destroy the evidence!! I am sure it was a debt he had to pay for what he promised them in return of the millions of dollars he and Hunter received! He is nothing but a traitor to this country which definitely requires immediate impeachment and should be permanently expelled from this country! He is a threat to this country and nothing but a Communist!!!

Also since he had time to remove Illegally obtained Sensitive Highly Classified Documents at his beach house and the FAKE news constantly protects him and lies for him.
What will be his code words for them to commit Election Fraud again in 2024 just like they did in 2020 and 2022?
WHY isn’t Hunter arrested?
And WHY he waited 8 Days to shoot down a Communist China SPY balloon.
Answer: He made decision based on Polls instead of Protecting the United States IMMEDIATELY.
NO BS.
But he could continue Spraying TOXIC CHEMICALS in the air every day by messing up Normal Weather Patterns.
Where’s our ENERGY INDEPENDENCE with ZERO INFLATION?
WHY are the Borders not SECURED?
WHY are AMERICANS ATTACKED and SPIED on including their Bank Accounts?

WHY the LIE and ILLEGAL UNCONSTITUTIONAL Mask and Vaccine Mandates but ILLEGAL ALIEN TERRORIST fly all over the country WITHOUT Mask and Vaccinated at Tax Payers expense?
WHY has he released TERRORIST and CRIMINALS with Crime running rampant?
WHY did DICTATOR Beijing biden sign agreement for Foreign countries to TAX PROFITS from U.S. Corporations? NO BS. Which in turn WE will pay for. Not the Corporation’s which will pass it on to us leaving us with even more less money than we are already suffering from.
WHY all the Illegal and Unconstitutional Executive Orders including Bills from previous FASCIST controlled Congress?
What’s his lie going to be on STEALING OUR MONEY from INFLATION and constantly INCREASING TAXES?
What’s this crap on forcing a 23% SALES TAX on everything? NO BS.
I sure as hell won’t be watching the
LYING TREASONOUS DICTATOR who is the DOMESTIC TERRORIST and NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT that continues to DESTROY the United States in every way he and his Communist party can.
As I said from the beginning of this.

its will be painful to watch the tottering, dementia-ridden absurdity of a ‘has been’ puffing out his chest bragging about shooting down a Chinese balloon, thinking his decisive action has prevented the spy photos from getting into the hands of our enemies because he ordered the Navy to recover the exposed film canisters. I can see SECDEF Lloyd with a blank stare saluting and saying yes sir, as the Emperor is standing there with no clothes ordering him to “get that film before it falls into enemy hands. ‘ it’s a sad horror show for America and what is even more disturbing is the millions of Americans who still think they made the right decision when they voted for him. STOP BEING BRAINWASHED BY THE FAKE NEWS AND START MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! If you don’t know when that was you probably graduated after 1970 and also received a fake education.

Very few people will listen to it. But the corporate media will hail it as the greatest speech since Demosthenes, and all those who pay attention to the corporate media, who are legion, will believe it. I keep hearing how, once the people actually hear Joe Biden, it will all be over for the Dems. Donald Trump would destroy Good Old Uncle Joe from Scranton in the debates. Joe defeated Trump by more than seven million raw votes and about seventy in the Electoral College. Folks on the Right who think that once the people actually know what the Dems are about, they will flock to the Repubs. They need to wake up. The Dems could get a turnip elected president.

We’ll hear lots about unity, fairness, the bottom-up economy, the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years (totally ignoring the low labor force participation rate), clean air, dirty Republicans…and, guaranteed, he’ll bash President Trump more than once for leaving this country in really bad shape at the time he (biden) was inaugurated.

Those many millions of new jobs he’ll take credit for aren’t actually new; they’re like Obama-jobs, “created or saved” after a difficult time (iow, after the same number had lost them in the recession or during Covid). “My stimulus programs didn’t cause inflation–Trump and the Republicans did”!

“Top of mind” will be the Beijing Balloon. He’ll milk that one for all it’s (not) worth. It’ll be a really sad day for biden if he alludes to an airborne Rudolph, the CCP-Nosed Reindeer, and how the U.S. tracked its progress all the way across the country…before “I. Brought. It. Down.”

By the way, the author said the speech will be given “next week”; just to be clear, it’s tomorrow night, Feb. 7. Should be fun.
