Biden’s State of the Union – Wobbly

Biden

Tonight, we will hear the annual State of the Union, 9:00 pm EST, from Biden. We know what we will not hear: The Union is wobbly, weak, and worried, just like the President. A man who visibly signals frailty, indecision, dissembling, faux machismo, struggles for orientation and cogency, no respect for truth – cannot inspire.

He will be flanked by a vice president no less embarrassing who regularly giggles at serious matters, enthuses at nonsense, yellow school busses and spaceships, cannot find the US border, and thinks North Korea is America’s ally.

Worse, we are in the grips of half a dozen major crises, none of which will be acknowledged – if mentioned at all in terms of dishonesty and disrespect of the struggles Americans face. Truth is a casualty. 

Major crimes – homicide, assault, carjacking, property destruction – set records in dozens of cities nationwide, as Democrats continue to disrespect, defund, and demoralize law enforcement – no contrition, no compunction, not understanding of what they are doing.

The border is literally open, Biden-Harris offering an invitation of future global citizenship, illegals pouring across in caravans, clogging cities from New York to Los Angeles, still shipped secretly to hundreds of cities and towns unable to manage them.

Downstream effects are predictable and horrifying – record human, sex, and drug trafficking – ruining young lives by the hundreds of thousands, those trafficked, raped, enlisted as mules, addicted, killed.

The straight-line effect of Biden-Harris’ disrespect for rule of law and indifference to America’s citizens -broadly construed – is the body of incontrovertible, revolting facts. Last year saw 108,000 young Americans dead from drug overdoses, youth unemployment at 11.2 percent in July 2022, and youth suicide attempts and suicides for teens – and pre-teens – at a “startling” level.

But you will not hear any of this because these facts are inconvenient, unimportant, and embarrassing. They describe a White House and Administration in disarray, unfocused on what matters. The data gets worse…

Despite presidential lies and misdirection, the economy is in freefall, racked by more than 31 trillion dollars in debt, unable to pay bills, and yet spending is at utterly unsustainable levels. Successive Biden-Harris-Pelosi-Schumer deficits that boggle the mind. 

In Fiscal Year 2022 (October 1, 2021, to September 30, 2022), the Administration and Congress spent $6.27 trillion on revenue of $4.9 trillion, creating a needless $1.38 trillion in deficit spending, which means more borrowing and printing of money we do not have – spiking inflation and interest rates. The US government previously – under Biden – ran a $2.8 trillion deficit for fiscal year 2021.

What will you hear? You will hear the lie – or mischaracterization of these facts – that Biden-Harris lowered the deficit from FY 2021 to FY2022 by $1.42 trillion. Is that true? Only in fantasyland.

The same will happen on inflation, up 500 percent since Biden took office, higher on some goods and services, intolerable for many struggling to pay for heating oil, home rental, commuting gas, basic groceries, and used cars. It edged down since the high last summer, after years of being low.

What will you hear? You will hear the dissembling, dishonest, dis-informative statement that inflation is down, or has come down, or that it was always here, or other data is more important. Like what?

As pension values, wages, and savings plummet in real value – between 8 and 10 percent a year – we will hear Social Security rose. Yes, but not at a level that keeps up with 2023 inflation, always a day late and a dollar short, and no effort at all to keep solvent a system that will crack open mid-2030s. No honesty.

Likewise, interest rates – which are being raised in a vain attempt to catch up with runaway congress and Biden-Harris spending – have risen seven times since Biden took office, four times in 2022, up 7.5 basis points, and we are expecting at least two more hikes.

What does that really mean? It means hardship – your credit cards, home loan, car loan, any debt you have that is variable, all future debt will rise markedly. You will pay more for all those businesses also facing higher interest. And interest on the $31 trillion national debt – much held by China? Also up.

National security? Think Chinese military ramp-ups, Russian audacity, 20 times the North Korean missile launches as in the prior administration, Iran on the verge of nuclear weapons because Biden bumbled, still tens of thousands of US allies stuck in Afghanistan, being systematically hunted down by the Taliban, that Biden-Harris have now given tens of millions of dollars, to go with billions in weapons left there.

Do not even begin talking cultural demise. Christians being thrown out of the Air & Space Museum for wearing Pro-Life hats, Satanic clubs given moral equivalency in schools, pro-life, pro-biological girl, anti-CRT, and anti-Marxist parents and speakers targeted as terrorists, set up for take down, arrested, humiliated, intimidated – and a Supreme Court Justice who cannot define “women.”

What is the State of the Union? Retrievable, able to be rebuilt with love, faith, and leadership – but presently? In trouble, as a result of stunning dishonesty, incompetence, and failed policies. In a word, the State of the Union is hardly strong. Wobbly, weak, and worried is a better description.

I am not going to watch this BS, I am sick and tired of being sick and tired if listening to this moron, how well he is done,
I think I will paint something so I can watch paint dry,
I know we will not be told one minutes worth of truth, he will only bash Republicans, and attack people who believe in the Constitution and Civil Liberties.
He can you know what up a rope!

Sad, but true. So corrupt, and evil . I’ll be tuning out this time. Reps, and Senators clapping for this mess they have caused. Watching this would make me vomit . The MSM glorifying this catastrophe. Will the lies ever stop ? Will justice ever prevail?

You might want to add that he might talk about the aid we are and will provide to Turkey and Syria from the fallout of the earthquake. Perception management in the WWIII psyops, right.

Biden should be in an assisted living home, not the Whitehouse. He and His whole incompetent administration should be fired. Our country may never come back from the damage that has been done!

I can’t watch this dribble I will become infuriated and frustrated. In the Bible, near the 2nd coming, right becomes wrong, and wrong becomes right. This Administration is the poster child for the lies and deceit. How half the nation thought this would be a good thing scares me.

“Wobbly, Weak, and Worried” is an accurate and measured description of our state of the union. I would use much stronger words than Mr. Charles. However, his specific descriptions of the many Biden administration failures leave us with a very full picture of failure and incompetence. I guess, the thing that bothers me the most is how a few feckless and powerful politicians have so much control over the weakening of the US in terms of economy and foreign policy. Including undocumented migrants, America has over 350 million people, yet most of the future of our great country is in the hands of a relatively miniscule number of people. That’s what happens when, we the people, surrender more and more of our rights and freedoms to an exploding federal government.

HOLD on there!! Let me check with Jill. Its just like the balloon show. Something that I use to think about a do!. Drop sensors everywhere, broadcast nothing only gather, boardcast when they ( US intel) activate the sensors/ equiptment when they want to see what they do. This way you have the info and the testing of the equptment location. It only takes a few seconds. OPPS

Honestly I’m more interested in listening to Gov Sanders response, representing the Republicans. I’ll be amazed if Joe will be able to stand up long enough to read his teleprompter.

I have heard Biden say that he decreased National Debt by $250 Billion in year 2021 & this article says debt was increased which is the same thing I have seen more than once. How can Biden get away with saying this about our National Debt if it is not even close to the truth? Congress needs to tell the American people the truth about our debt & expose WH if they are not telling us the truth.

Soft on Crime is a big problem for both Biden & Trump: 1) Biden & AG Garland did not enforce the Federal Law that prohibits protestors in front of Supreme Court Justice homes . 2) Trump keeps saying that if elected again, he will probably pardon the Jan 6th people that attacked Capitol as they are being wronged. Now, tell me that either one of them will back our police force & enforce our laws.

I know if I watch this Progressively Communist wannabe Democrat’s BS State of the Union address that he will lie through his teeth knowing that only Fox News will call him out for it! He will probably brag about shooting down the Chinese spy balloon even though it’s 8 days too late! He’ll also lie saying Trump never shot down any of the 3 Chinese spy balloons that happened during his administration. REALLY? . . . You mean to tell me that if there were 3 previous Chinese spy balloons during his administration and he ignored them that the Mainstream Media wouldn’t have called him out for it? . . . What BS, they and the whole Democratic Party would have been screaming from the highest heavens! And 90% of the Democrats watching will believe it! Then he will again lie and say how much he’s done to improve the country since being in office and I’ll want to reach through the television screen and choke the lying SOB! . . . And it’ll raise my blood pressure knowing that there are people stupid enough to believe him! Stock up on food and ammunition people bec I fear the worst is yet to come!

Bet DICTATOR Beijing biden will say he fought in WWI while his son died in WWII when neither one was born yet.
Next lie will be the economy is great.
Next lie, our Borders are Secured.
Next lie, I brought Unity after ATTACKING CONSERVATIVE AMERICANS and RAIDING their homes for political purposes since 1-21-21.
Next lie, I have no ties to the Communist Chinese Party that I support.
Next lie, INFLATION lowest in history.
Next lie, our military is strong,
(even though we don’t have any AMMUNITION to Defend the United States or shoot down Communist Chinese SPY Balloons flying all over the USA without taking Polls for 8 DAYS).
Next lie, I didn’t STEAL Sensitive Highly Classified Documents WITHOUT National Security Clearance and Hide them everywhere even though I was caught.
Next lie, we have plenty of Fuel and Energy.
The list will keep going until his drugs wear off and his DICTATOR Address will end with his Satan Dark Blood Red backdrop with 2 Marines behind him.
So happy I have more Important things to do like eating Ice Cream than watch a LYING COMMUNIST DICTATOR.

Their 1.4T reduction is only reflected in the fact that in the fact that if you subtract the 1.32T deficit that they created in 2022 from the 2.8T deficit they created in 2021, then you get 1.42T.
