AMAC Exclusive – By Alan Jamison

With fewer than nine months to go until Election Day and Joe Biden continuing to slide in the polls, Biden’s upcoming State of the Union Address on March 7 presents perhaps one of the last major opportunities he will have to reset his flailing re-election campaign.

Here are five things to expect when Biden goes before Congress for what could be his final time as president.

Biden Will Blame Republicans for the Border Crisis

If Biden’s last two State of the Union addresses are any guide, Americans can expect to hear plenty of blame-shifting when Biden takes the podium next week.

With the border crisis emerging as perhaps the president’s biggest political liability, Biden’s speechwriters will almost certainly include accusations that House Republicans sabotaged a “bipartisan” border security deal in early February. As AMAC Newsline has previously reported, that deal contained numerous provisions that would have made the border crisis even worse—including a path to citizenship for as many illegal aliens as Joe Biden wants.

Throughout the first three years of his presidency, Biden attempted to largely ignore the flood of illegal aliens into the country. But with more than 7.2 million illegal crossings throughout his presidency and high-profile tragedies like the killing of a 22 year old nursing student on the University of Georgia campus by a twice-arrested illegal alien, Biden can no longer pretend the crisis doesn’t exist.

Expect the State of the Union to continue Biden’s effort to blame Republicans for the situation at the border, as ridiculous as that may seem. As part of this effort, Biden will likely call for “comprehensive immigration reform” and falsely claim that he needs action from Congress to enforce immigration laws already on the books.

Biden Will Try to Convince the Country the Economy is Doing Great

Though the White House’s “Bidenomics” push has largely died out amid serious negative feedback from the American people, the White House and Biden’s re-election campaign are nonetheless still trying to convince the country that the economy is actually doing quite well.

Expect Biden to spend plenty of time touting ostensibly strong recent jobs reports (largely a factor of ongoing recovery from the pandemic) robust gains in the stock market (although these gains are drastically reduced when correcting for inflation), and the fact that the rate of inflation has come down since four-decade highs in 2022 – although the metric still remains well above historical norms.

What anyone who tunes into Biden’s speech should not forget, however, is that there is a significant disconnect between the narrative Biden is selling and the actual experience of everyday people. 75 percent of Americans are concerned about their family’s financial security. 55 percent say they are worse off financially under Biden than Trump. Just 28 percent say their financial situation is improving, while 46 percent say it’s getting worse.

No matter what spin Biden attempts to give to the sour state of the economy, most Americans will likely be unwilling to buy it.

Biden Will Demand More Money for Ukraine Without any for Border Security

Despite Senate Democrats failing to support adequate border security measures to accompany a foreign aid bill, Biden has continued to insist that Congress pass billions more to defend Ukraine’s borders while the U.S. border remains wide open.

Biden will likely spend a few minutes scolding Republicans for not simply granting his requests to ship billions more taxpayer dollars overseas without any sort of oversight or accountability.

Biden Will Continue to Slander his Political Enemies as “threats to democracy”

Following former President Donald Trump’s landslide victory in the South Carolina Republican primary, it appears virtually inevitable that he will become the Republican nominee and face Biden in a rematch this November.

Throughout his presidency, Biden has made a habit of slandering Trump and all of his supporters as a “threat to democracy.” Absent any real policy successes to run on, Biden’s team has resorted to fearmongering and insisting that Trump would be a “dictator” if he wins a second term.

Biden likely won’t take any direct shots at Trump or mention him by name. But facing a deficit of six points or even more in some 2024 general election polls, Biden may feel the need to hit the “democracy issue” hard during the speech to hold onto his diminishing left-wing base.

Biden Will have a Major Gaffe

Axios has reported that Biden’s team views the 2024 State of the Union as a “reset moment” and “a chance to overcome or at least neutralize concerns about President Biden’s age and vitality.”

2023 was filled with plenty of gaffes and blunders for the 81-year-old president. The recent release of the Hur report, which alleged that Biden was unable to recall major events in his life, including when his son, Beau, died, and when he served as vice president, has added to the perception that Biden is unfit for office. A full 64 percent of Americans do not think Biden has the mental fitness to serve a second term.

For a president who gives precious few interviews and rarely takes questions from the press, the upcoming State of the Union may be his last opportunity to make the case that he is healthy enough to go another four years. But if Biden can’t make it through his speech or has a major stumble – and he’s sure to have at least one rough spot – the further damage to his public image could prove irreparable.

Regardless of what Biden says during his State of the Union, however, or even if he can make it through the speech gaffe-free, it may make little difference. At the end of 2023, Biden’s approval rating, just 39 percent, was lower than any president seeking re-election in the modern era.

It may well be the case that, no matter how valiant an effort Biden makes, the American people have already seen and heard enough.

I tried to watch last year’s state of the union address but after hearing lie after lie and watching Nancy Pelosi and others jump up clapping like trained seals I had to turn it off. I really like this article and I think you really nailed it. The problem is that there are roughly 40% of the population who will loved Biden’s speech regardless of the lies and blame game. Remember last year when several celebrities called Bidens’ lie fest “the best SOTU address ever?? I just hope that there are more people living in the real world voting this time around.

I agree! Why listen to a President who has turned his back on the American People for the last 3 plus years.
President Biden is totally incompetent! I beleive he stole the 2020 Election.
God Bless Donald J.Trump.
He was never convicted of any wrong doing.
There was never proof. Biden on the other hand has years in public office of deceit and blatant corruption.
Trump 2024!
Now that the US Supreme Court over Ruled The State Of Colorado trying to keep Trump off the Primary Ballot.
God Bless America!

Gee, it certainly didn’t take much effort to come up with this list. The various mouthpieces for the administration have been telegraphing all this for weeks now. Sorry but I won’t be wasting my time watching our dementia patient in chief drone on incoherently for however long his medication allows him to stand upright before Congress. I’d rather watch a good movie or play some chess against the computer.

President Biden has been unfit for office since more than 30 years ago, due to his conspicuous, childlike moral bereftness and serial lying. I still don’t believe he was duly elected, especially given the deliberately huge chain-of-custody gaps for those ballots.
Hang on tight to what is yours… because they think it’s theirs.

For the entertainment value, I am going to watch it for the gaffes. I mean Biden speaking for an hour or so has got to fall completely into a series of stupefying blunders as he losses what little train of thought he has left. All Aboard! the Z train is leaving the station folks!

Ole Joe will lie and lie some more. The man hasn’t had an original thought since first elected to the senate. He always followed someone else’s coattails. He is envious of Trump. He would love to do what Trump did but he doesn’t have anything to say. O is in charge. We are not looking to what he has to say to the nation but how many gaffes stumbles he is going to make. Isn’t that sad? President of America a man so brain damaged he can’t handle a beach chair. Now give him an ice cream cone he takes care of that and never misses a lick. Talks with his mouth full like small children do. What else did we expect. He has stripped our military of equipment and created a huge shortage of manpower while China and Iran are talking war. And don’t forget he wants more money for the Ukraine. Who is going to save us. NATO? They don’t have any money themselves or equipment, that all went to the Ukraine. I like to hear once all these talking heads on these news channels put out an investigated report on the state of our defense forces. The manpower shortage. The shortage of equipment. Just saying? Do they care? Or do they think China will not attack or Iran. America is in such a disarray. We are not the United States of America anymore. We are dems against red. The president of the United States is representing all the people but ole Joe has made everything political and weaponized all the depts that should be neutral. The Supreme Court today put some sanity back by a 9-0 decision Trump cannot be kicked off the ballot under article 14 section 3. Finally their dictatorial platform is broken. This is not over I am sure O is working hard to find another way to get the reps eliminated from the election. President Trump is right this is a unifying decision for the country. If the left will only accept that dictating to the people does not work. The people shall decide for themselves what is best for them and the country. That last part the dems pay no attention to. Total control is what they want and destroy America in the process.

Like someone said, O is in charge… of all poicy decisions. Brandon can’t think or perform, and never knows where he is or what to do. His dementia gave him a violent temper, and he is spoiled rotten brat and abusive verbally when he does not get what he wants. He is the worst president in history but the 2nd worst president in history, and JB’s own wife, Jill, want him to stay in there until O.finishes “fundamentally transforming America” which he hates. They are scared to death of Trump winning, so for sure, again, the Dems will cheat their way to the finish line. We must all be afraid, and we must pray hard. If O has his 4th term, WWIII will happen and we will no longer be a constitutional republic, if we exist at all. The SCOTU will be too sad to even watch.

Joey’s to blame for the Southern Border crisis. He destroyed all of President Trump’s border policies on the Border with the stroke of his pen on day one after being installed in the White House. The border Bill was a joke allowing 5,000 illegal aliens to enter our country daily. Do the math. Restart construction of the border wall immediately.
The jobs reports he brags about are jobs being refilled after the plandemic. Still fewer jobs than in the summer and fall of 2019.
MAGA republicans. Damn them for wanting to Make America Great Again.
The biggest threat to Democracy is Biden and the Democrats use of lawfare against the opposing parties leading candidate. Talk about election interference at it’s highest.
Biden will make major gaffes that’s a given. If he can find his way off the stage at the end. That would be a win.

They’ll have him on some drug to make him coherent for the short time he is allowed to read the prompter. He’ll lie about the border, lack of crime in cities, Bidenflation to the rescue, yada, yada, yada. MSM will say how fit and healthy he is. Not worth the time or airspace in my opinion.

I think it’s ironic that he and the Democrats say Republicans are a threat to democracy when their party didn’t even allow the people to hear debates from other candidates or even vote in a primary (like FL and NC). How is that not a threat to democracy when the people are shut out of the process? While it wouldn’t be appropriate, it would be fun to watch Speaker Johnson roll his eyes and tear up Biden’s speech afterwards. Oh, and maybe let Trump give the Republican response afterwards. Praying for our country and God’s intercession to this fiasco known as Washington DC!

One thing we know for sure: President Biden will not write this speech or personally care what it says. He will try to stick to the script. He might do it. He might not. At any age, this man never showed the ability to be president. What Americans should be thinking about is — does his description of the state of the union match what our own personal experience shows us? Don’t call him a liar. Call his claims fiction.

He won’t be able to function without all the drugs. Of course he’ll blame Republicans and everyone else for his constant failures and disasters since day one. The self righteous are never guilty or have done anything wrong.
He Opened the Borders for his Illegal Alien Terrorist Invasion who one or more of them will commit a Terrorist Attack and Created Constant Inflation, Killed Our Energy Independence (High Fuel Prices, High Food Prices [Half Size] Including High Utility Bills) and Economy (Recent Executive Order to STOP ALL NEW MANUFACTURING PLANTS FROM BEING BUILT Making the United States Rely COMPLETELY On Communist China), Bowing Down to Communist China, Election Interference, Destroying Our Military, Destroying Our Schools, Crime Running Rampant, Pardoning Terrorist, Paying Terrorist, Destroying Our Children’s Lives, Destroying Our Freedom Of Choice, Destroying Our Freedom of Speech, Destroying Our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, Weaponized ALL Federal Agencies, ATTACK and SPY On Americans and Our Bank Accounts (while his Illegal Alien Terrorist Buddies Aren’t) etc., etc.. The list goes forever.
But he’s innocent and just an innocent old man (BS) and didn’t Steal Sensitive Highly Classified Documents Without National Security Clearance and Hide Them In his Garage and In Chinatown With Everyone Including Communist China Having Access To Them Including Hunter. But Isn’t Charged.
As I said at the beginning, it’s everybody else’s fault but Dictator Beijing biden’s. BS. It’s ALL His FAULT.

There will be nothing good that comes out of his mouth and then there will be Harris behind him sitting clapping and with a big grin on his face. What makes me mad is that he has done nothing but destroy this country with all the illegals in this country and everyone seems to be happy with that. That is what is sad about many of the cities that harbor the illegals that break the law and think nothing of it as well. He is the worst president in history and all the Dems in Washington and in this country think he has done so much very sad.
