State of the Union Address

The U.S. Constitution mandates in Article II, Section 3, that presidents “shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.

It’s always been up to POTUS to decide when and how they fulfill this obligation. Until Wilson, most of them have submitted their reports in writing. But modern U.S. presidents have generally given their annual “State of the Union Address”, live before a joint session of Congress at some time in January or February.

And why not? It’s a great opportunity for the president to get a lot of attention, something they have exploited increasingly as technology has advanced. In 1923, Coolidge’s was broadcast over radio for the first time. In 1947, Truman’s was the broadcast on television for the first time. In 1965, LBJ moved his from mid-afternoon to prime time to maximize his television audience. And in 2002, Dubya had his broadcast live over the internet.

Only on a handful of occasions did modern presidents interrupt the tradition. In 1944, FDR’s scheduled delivery was canceled due to his poor health, but the speech was transmitted in writing. And in 1986, Reagan’s was postponed after the Challenger space shuttle exploded.

The only modern president I could find who did not deliver an annual address was Jimmy Carter during in his inaugural year of 1977. I looked for quite a long time, but was not able to find any reason that he skipped the opportunity to lay out his vision for his administration. In addition, while he technically fulfilled his constitutional obligation by submitted an “Annual Report to the Congress for 1977” in writing, it wasn’t published until March of 1978 … more than month after he delivered his 1978 State of the Union speech before Congress on January 19, 1978.

In January, FAUXTUS said he would be talking about his “Build Back Better Plan” during his first address to a joint session of Congress “next month.” Multiple sites quote AP reporting that it was likely to be held on February 23. One included the AP link below, which no longer shows the report. Best guess … they scrubbed it to avoid embarrassing President Dementia. However, one included this screen shot:

On February 16, press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about it and said, “I’ve not Nancy Drewed that one out today, but it was never planned to be in February and we don’t have a date for a joint session at this point.”

Thomas Lifson wrote the obvious at American Thinker, that is that “The lickspittle media are rushing in with ‘fact checks’ to assure the nation that there is no requirement or deadline for a SOTU speech.” But hey … we all know the real reason, right?

NOTE: In 2019, VOA News (link below) published an article that claimed, “Recent presidents — Reagan in 1981, George H.W. Bush in 1989, Clinton in 1993, George W. Bush in 2001, Barack Obama in 2009 and Trump in 2017 — have chosen not to deliver official State of the Union addresses during their first years in office. Those speeches would have come soon after their inaugural addresses. However, many, including Trump, have delivered major speeches in front of Congress that have had the feel of the State of the Union without the title.

I googled “SOTU YouTube” for each of those years and found videos of said “major speeches in front of Congress that have had the feel of the State of the Union without the title.” They are all labeled “State of the Union.

Bits & Bytes

B-12: CLICK https://rumble.com/ve456v-a-promising-treatment-for-covid-youve-likely-never-heard-of.html [37:07] to hear cancer researcher Dr. Carmen Wheatley discuss a safe and novel treatment for COVID: vitamin B-12. This is really interesting, particularly if you like alternative, natural treatments and medical history.

I was delighted to hear her recommend Vitamins C, D3, and K2, plus the mineral zinc as a daily supplement to boost the immune system and help prevent infection in the first place … because we’ve been doing that for several years.

BIPARTISANSHIP: In their on-going effort to bankrupt the nation, Democrats are plotting yet ANOTHER $1.9 Trillion Porkulus Spending Bill, which they deceptively call “COVID relief” … even though the majority of it is NOT for COVID relief.

Republicans offered 286 amendments. Democrats accepted 2 of them.

CALIFORNIA: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/aklavan/videos/1303230003395405 [4:04] to hear how Carlsbad, California, restaurant owners are doing it better.

CAPITOL BREACH: This video was shot BEFORE the breach. CLICK https://rumble.com/embed/vb33rv/?pub=4 [6:30]. The breach was pre-planned and had nothing to do with MAGA or Trump. My best guess is the Dems wanted it so they could do what they’ve been doing to stigmatize and shut us up permanently. Second best guess … they were really disappointed that the incursion, vandalism, and violence wasn’t a whole lot worse. They just can’t count on us patriotic types to misbehave on command.

GEORGIA: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/cherry.walker1/posts/10222059834059522 [:11] to see “far-right conspiracy theorist” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s latest nod to the Flat Earth and Two Gender Society. I wonder how long that sign lasted …

GREAT MOMENTS IN UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES: Volume 1 [3:03]

HERO: Henry Darby is the principal of North Charleston High School, where 90% of the students live below the poverty line. Disturbed by their pressing, real life needs, he got a second job at Wal*Mart, where he works three night shifts a week to earn money to help out where he can.

He doesn’t think it’s anything special, but when his supervisor found out what his day job is, she didn’t agree. At all. She got Wal*Mart to donate $50,000 to the school. Then, someone started a GoFundMe campaign that, as of this writing, has raised $27,425 toward its $30,000 goal.

LIZ CHENEY: When she voted to impeach Trump, Rep. Liz Cheney [R-WY] planted herself firmly in the NeverTrump camp with the rest of the elitist RINOs. The fact that she was censured by her own state’s GOP and recent polls showing Trump’s popularity hasn’t waned have apparently had no impact.

At a recent Reagan Institute event, she said, “It’s very important, especially for us as Republicans, to make clear that we aren’t the party of white supremacy.

No, we don’t. A new NBC News poll showed that support for the GOP by Hispanic blue-collar voters went from 23% (2010) to 36% (2020). Likewise, support for the GOP by Black blue-collar voters went from 5% to 12% over the same time period.

Columnist David Marcus replied, “Cheney’s claims are utterly baseless, and quite frankly, if she really believes the GOP is a racist party, the moral thing to do is to quit the party immediately.

I think it would be more to the point for the Party of “We fought the Civil War to keep slavery legal”, of the KKK, of Jim Crow laws, and of the genocidal Planned Parenthood’s preference for siting abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods to try and explain to us why they aren’t the party of racism.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: On Tuesday, I recounted a story Mama Buzz heard on the radio. She just sent me a link to the written story. “I’m on the side of the road crying…I have to tell you why.”

ROE V WADE: The long-awaited film, Roe v. Wade, will premiere at CPAC today in Orlando, Florida with producer Nick Loeb and Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight. It tells the backstory behind the infamous U.S. Supreme Court abortion ruling. It will be available on DVD starting in April. Amazon has it for pre-order, saying it will ship in early May.

SOUTH DAKOTA: Gov. Kristi Noem has signed a Born Alive act into law. In the great state of South Dakota, babies who survive abortion must be given the same medical and comfort care a premature baby of the same age would get.

WASHINGTON POST: On February 19, one of WaPo’s regular columnists fumed that a TV character chose life instead of aborting her unborn baby. Kate Cohen wrote, “Dammit! I was hoping that the young, professional woman, upon learning she was pregnant right after her jerky boyfriend left her, might decide to have an abortion. Instead, it turns out, she doesn’t even consider it.”

I’m so tired of this,” she continued. “The ability to put a stop to an unwanted pregnancy is part of a kit of tools women have that allow us to determine the course of our own lives. It’s freedom care.”

XAVIER BACERRA: CLICK https://twitter.com/thejcoop/status/1364672291909611521 [:28] to hear FAUXTUS’ nominee to be the HHS Secretary lie. Although technically as California’s Attorney General, Becerra filed his initial lawsuit against the federal government rather than suing the Little Sisters of the Poor directly, it’s a distinction without a difference. If the nuns had lost, they would have been forced to fund abortions.
