A Sad State of the Union: Biden trades American sovereignty for humiliating weakness

Joe Biden has sat in the Oval Office for just two years, and already the country is a much different place than it was under the leadership of his predecessor, President Donald Trump. Tuesday’s speech will mark Biden’s second State of the Union Address, which will be delivered to a joint session of Congress.

As Chinese spy balloons drift over the continental U.S. and war rages on in Eastern Europe, the world is perched on the brink of a Third World War. The state of the once-supreme American union has never been more humiliating.

What to expect

Joe Biden will focus his address to Congress and the nation on his four-part Unity Agenda. According to the White House, this plan will focus on four major areas: ending cancer, caring for U.S. veterans, addressing the mental health crisis, and taking action against the drug and opioid epidemic in America.

Biden will likely use tonight’s speech to deflect from his catastrophic failings, particularly in light of his administration’s bumbling response to the Chinese spy balloon that was allowed to drift over the U.S. for a full week before being shot down off the coast of South Carolina.

Fentanyl and opioid epidemic

Since 2021, deadly drugs like heroin and fentanyl have poured into the United States at increasingly alarming rates. The wide-open southern border has been the primary tributary for drug traffickers moving this lethal cargo.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there was a huge uptick in drug overdoses between April 2020 and April 2021, resulting in more than 100,000 overdose-related deaths in a single year. Fentanyl was the primary cause of death from synthetic opioids and continues to be an increasingly aggressive scourge in the U.S.

The root cause of this rapid escalation in drug trafficking and fentanyl abuse stems from a totally unsecured southern border. This is a crisis that has been facilitated by the Biden administration, and it is laughable that he will attempt to slap a band-aid on the issue by simply increasing inspections at U.S. ports of entry and cracking down on commercial package delivery, as the White House is proposing ahead of the address.

The border must be secured to stop the flow of drugs, but don’t expect that kind of a pledge from Biden.

World War III is a real possibility

Another reality that faces the nation is the uncertainty of the outcome of the war between Ukraine and Russia. To date, the U.S. has funded around $100 billion in aid to Ukraine. In January, the Biden administration made the decision to supply the Ukrainian forces with 31 Abrams Tanks, a move that the Kremlin labeled as “direct involvement in the conflict” from the West.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was even allowed to address Congress in December 2022, pleading with the U.S. to give his country more aid – because $100 billion of Americans’ hard-earned taxpayer money has not been enough.

“The loss by a nuclear power in a conventional war can provoke the outbreak of a nuclear war,” Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Medvedev stated in January.

The Biden White House is fanning the flames of potential nuclear war.

Inflation and ongoing economic woes

The ongoing inflationary pressure and seemingly endless supply chain problems in the U.S. is driving small business owners and family farms to resort to drastic measures to survive. According to a report from Fox Business, business owners in West Virginia identified heavy government over-regulation and the astronomical increase in goods and supplies as the primary issues causing financial pain.

Biden has made every effort to destroy American energy independence, beginning with his administration’s move to kill the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would have been completed in 2023 and would have supplied an additional 833,000 barrels of crude oil into the U.S., per Fox News.

Our reliance on foreign oil has driven up the cost of gas, as well as the bills for keeping the lights on in our homes. In fact, a report from USA Today admitted that, on average, American households would be paying around 12.7 percent more to heat their homes this winter, according to the energy assistance association.

Between skyrocketing gas prices and out-of-sight energy bills, you can thank Joe Biden for everything he’s done to make the average American’s life more difficult than it used to be.

Deflecting from failure

Biden’s open border crisis has also facilitated a tidal wave of illegal immigration in America that has never been seen before. American sovereignty has been irrevocably violated. President Trump even recently told RSBN’s Brian Glenn that he believed the number of illegal immigrants who have crossed over into the U.S. since Biden took office could be around “15 million” people.

This open flow of unfettered illegal immigration has allowed millions of unvetted individuals to invade America, providing easy pathways of access to drug traffickers, human traffickers, and terrorists.

As American cities are plagued by a drug epidemic, an overflow of illegal immigrants, Antifa-fueled rioting, and a nationwide homeless problem, the United States has never been more weakened from within.

Biden will attempt to deflect away from his failures on immigration and public safety by focusing on more neutral issues like cancer research and mental health, but the underlying problems driving the unrest and increasingly rapid erosion of American strength will likely remain totally unaddressed in Tuesday’s speech.
