🧵 The State of the Union address sets the tone for the year on the sitting President’s agenda.

That said, as advocates for the whole health of children, what stuck out to us?
Note that generally the president does not actually pen the speech, rather it’s pulled together by speechwriters and advisors, then given to the president for edits and approval.

In other words, the speech is not just a case for support for the presidents agenda, it’s indicative……
“Children” were mentioned about a dozen times and “education” was used just 3 times.

The bulk of it was jobs jobs jobs bipartisan jobs jobs jobs seniors jobs jobs jobs folks folks and finish the job. Only a smidgen on children’s issues and rights.

NEW: The Political Theater Behind the Bipartisan Data Privacy Push

Biden’s #sotu2023 call for better data protections got a bipartisan standing ovation. So, where’s a federal privacy law?

My latest is live
*this piece is also the reason I’m on 2 hours of post-#sotu2023 sleep 😴 today
“A lot of the data we’re seeing already, teenagers, preteens—it has a very, very negative impact on their self-esteem, their self-concept, and their well-being,” @CoryBooker says, as the push for children’s online privacy protections ramps up in Washington

Headed back from Vegas, here are a few slides & findings from our #sotu2023 @NavigatorSurvey report. 1) Respondents did not like GOP interruptions, & GOP behaved even more inappropriately than respondents' expected (52% pre/59% post) CC @amyewalter & @KattyKay_
2) The President made a lot of movement--overall & on specific traits. Note the pre/post change on "up for the job" and "trying to bring people together."
3) Confidence in Biden's ability to tackle a range of issues improved, particularly SS/Medicare.

I'm going to try to get a good month to finish my book Nationalists Without A Nation done and out before 2024. I also owe Greg Johnson a response for his critique of me here -…, which I encourage you to read. But below are my key premises. I ask for input.
There's a systemic failure in democracy seen from classical times, cited by de Toqueville and in a more fundamental way by Evola. He called it the Regression of the Castes. We'd say it's the Weaponization of Misery. The Left wins because it fails and thus creates more of itself.
Even in a mental health system we could argue is created by and for leftists, leftists have more mental health disorders. They report higher rates of unhappiness. Yet they steamroll conservatives who have families, better sex lives, more stable marriages, more kids, etc.

Bob Ney: I think the longest State of the Union speech was Reagan's at 1 hr 50 min.
Rick: Wasn't Clinton's 2 1/2 hrs?
Bob: I was there! We knew it'd be long when he leaned around the teleprompter.
@bobney @POTUS #SOTU2023
Bob Ney: The theme of "workers" was all throughout Biden's speech. And instead of introducing 19 new things he was going to do, he mentioned a couple of things he'll work on but recapped all the things he's accomplished so far.
@bobney @POTUS #SOTU2023
Bob Ney: I don't think it was planned when Biden said "some" of the Repubs wanted to cut Social Security & Medicare, & then they applauded when he said about keeping SS & Medicare off the table.

Scott Paul: We've seen 800,000 new manufacturing jobs in 2 years. All of these factories are just getting on line & will be filling up over the next couple of years.
@ScottPaulAAM @KeepItMadeinUSA @POTUS #SOTU2023
Scott Paul: I think some of these infrastructure items are bulletproof. Also, Pres. Biden did get the GOP to agree not to cut Medicare & Social Security, which is a big feat.

Rick: Pres. Biden's speech should be called The Hardhat Speech. Put down the blue hat, the red hat, & put on the hard hat.

Was any other major issue given as little time as abortion and the overturning of #RoeVWade in #Biden’s #sotu2023?

Fucking outrageous.

If you thought “Where’s the sense of urgency?!” now you know.

It doesn’t exist.
It’s as if nothing happened just a few months ago.

It’s bad enough that Republicans won the House just 5 months after the Supreme Court overturned #RoeVWade and now the president gives it what—3 or 4 sentences?!

I am THRILLED that I am postmenopausal because to be a person who could get pregnant in this country right now would be to held hostage to a zealotry that at the highest levels of politics in this country is denied.

Fucking outrageous #SOTU

@POTUS opens with a substantial commitment to bipartisanship. What agenda will he propose to break two years of gridlock?

@KevinMKruse @JoyAnnReid @HerbertHistory

10 million new small business applications as part of the effort to revitalize the national (and world) economy as part of the recovery from the COVID pandemic.

No note on the coordinated effort to generate inflation and a recession.

Infrastructure investment is the key element in building an extensive coalition that will bring leadership together across partisan divides.

Joe Biden congratulates Kevin McCarthy for being selected House Speaker.

Foolish and Moronic.

Biden highlighting Ds and Rs coming together to pass legislation and to stand with Ukraine.

He's saying to allies, look, I got these idiots from the GOP House Freedom Caucus under control, although debatable.

Domestically, he's giving GOP House more credit than deserved.

🧵: Here is the text of the China section of Biden’s #sotu2023 speech.

“People’s Republic of China was increasing its power and America was falling in the world.
Not anymore.
I’ve made clear with President Xi that we seek competition, not conflict…”
“… I will make no apologies that we are investing to make America strong. Investing in American innovation, in industries that will define the future, and that China’s government is intent on dominating…”
“… Investing in our alliances and working with our allies to protect our advanced technologies so they’re not used against us.
Modernizing our military to safeguard stability and deter aggression…”

I’ll be listing each one of Joe Biden’s lies during his scripted #SOTU “speech” here. #SOTU2023 @JennPellegrino @realDonaldTrump
Joe Biden Lie #1: “My administration created 12 million new jobs in 2 years”. Truth: Those jobs weren’t created, they were allowed to reopen despite Democrats shutting down businesses.
Joe Biden Lie #2: “Factories closed down and towns became shadows of their former selves”. Truth: Joe Biden supported sending our jobs overseas and trade deals that harmed America. @realDonaldTrump did more for the working class in 4 years than Biden has done in 45 years.

HUGE: Mark Houck, a Catholic pro-life dad prosecuted by the Biden DOJ for apparently defending his son in a scuffle outside an abortion clinic, will attend #sotu2023 as the guest of @RepScottPerry, @MaryMargOlohan reports.…
“Biden... weaponized the power of the federal government against anyone who thwarts his radical, Leftist agenda,” Perry said. “He should see the faces of some of those Americans who have been relentlessly... persecuted by the same government sworn to protect their freedoms.”
“Mark Houck & family are innocent victims of the radical Left’s reprehensible abuse of power, which...seeks to destroy the lives of hard-working Americans whose only ‘crimes’ are using their God-given constitutional rights to protect their families, faith, and way of life."

#EspionageAct [doesn’t] mention classification at all. It talks about a specific type of information: national defense… The real question is, why would Trump WANT to declassify secrets that could harm the U.S.?”
