Joe Biden just delivered the worst State of the Union address of any president in most of our lifetimes. He slurred words, called “Ukrainians” “Iranians,” even made up a new word, “progremiums.” I guess that’s a cross between a health program and an insurance premium. There were basically no policy revelations or depth of explanation for where we stand as a nation. A series of one-liners stitched together for applause lines. It’s hard to sound tough when you can’t enounce words properly. The speech was what you would expect on a comedy parody of leftist ideals such as “infects” of climate change and keeping out a vaccine with a wall. Everybody sort of knew what he meant, but overall it was an embarrassment.
Instead of “proud” Ukrainian people, he said “a pound of Ukrainian people.” He talked about all the sanctions he is putting on Russia and how he is working “with 30 other countries to release 60 million barrels of oil from reserves around the world. America will lead that effort, releasing 30 million barrels from our own Strategic Petroleum Reserve. And we stand ready to do more if necessary, united with our allies. These steps will help blunt gas prices here at home.” Biden didn’t tell the American people that despite the sanctions, the United States still imports 209,000 barrels of crude oil and 500,000 barrels of other petroleum products from Russia PER DAY, according to the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers. At today’s prices, Biden is financially fueling the Russian invasion by $70 million per day.
His COVID discussion was a billboard for big pharma Pfizer, saying, “We are also ready with anti-viral treatments. If you get COVID-19, the Pfizer pill reduces your chances of ending up in the hospital by 90%. I’ve ordered more pills than anyone in the world has. Pfizer is working overtime to get us 1 million pills this month and more than double that next month.” He encouraged people to get the “at home” COVID test kit, but didn’t tell Americans that they come from China and contain deadly toxins if not used properly. Biden dropped the “safe” part of the vaccine narrative. He said, “We know how incredibly effective vaccines are. If you’re vaccinated and boosted you have the highest degree of protection.” No mention of the 40%-plus death rate increase of vaccinated 18-49-year-olds and other issues casting doubt on the safety of the vaccines.
Biden repeatedly advocated for his plan to reduce inflation and cut the deficit with new government spending on green energy, child care, COVID test kits and more. He said, “My plan to fight inflation will lower your costs and lower the deficit…Let’s provide investments, tax credits to weatherize your home and your businesses to be energy efficient and get a tax credit for it; double America’s clean energy production in solar, wind, and so much more; lower the price of electric vehicles, saving another $80 a month that you’re not going to have to pay at the pump.” Only trouble is, Biden’s energy policies are causing the worst inflation in half a century and more government spending will only increase the deficit. This is delusional socialism. Line after line in the speech avoided the failures and selling more of the same with his future “plan.”
Let’s be fair. Every president has their spin on how they view their programs and progress through a political lens. Biden was faced with a momentous task of selling a failing presidency that from day one enacted policies that stimulated the worst inflation since Jimmy Carter. He tried to sell the idea that his policies and plans will be good for Americans. His speech was an attempt to put lipstick on a pig. To demonstrate just how delusional Biden is, here is another of his quotes: “Folks, if we are to advance liberty and justice, we need to secure the border and fix the immigration system.” Yeah, he actually said that and more. Colossians 2:8 says, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit.” And that’s the state of the delusion.
