Ron Paul: Joe Biden’s ‘Nightmare In America’ State Of The Union

“We seem to be becoming a nation that would rather scream at each other than listen to each other.”

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Last week, president Joe Biden delivered a dark and angry speech meant to convince the low percentage of Americans who still feel positively about his presidency that everything is fine and will only get better if he is re-elected for a second term.

Unfortunately, we have come a long way from the optimism of a Ronald Reagan, who won a second term partially on the popularity of his “Morning in America” campaign commercials. Reagan was far from a perfect president, but it was that sense of optimism in otherwise difficult times that resulted in a record re-election victory. Biden’s speech, by contrast, was dark and angry, attacking not only his political opponents but even seeming to threaten the Supreme Court!

As constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley observed recently, “In some ways, the State of the Union speech may have died when former Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up the address of former President Donald Trump … While many in the media celebrated her lack of decorum and respect, she tore up something far more important than a speech. She shredded decades of tradition of civility and any remaining residue of restraint in our politics.”

We seem to be becoming a nation that would rather scream at each other than listen to each other.

The message of Biden’s speech was that if you do not support his reelection, you are an insurrectionist and hate America and democracy. Seven years after the launch of the “Russia-gate” hoax against then-candidate Donald Trump, it becomes clearer that the line “our democracy” means it’s only democratic when their side gets elected.

It is understandable that Biden is so angry. Despite all the lying with statistics about the economy, Americans can clearly see for themselves how inflation is undermining the standard of living. Of course this is not all Biden’s fault – Republicans in control of the House show little interest in cutting spending – but people generally blame the president for the state of the economy.

We are no better off on foreign policy either. President Biden started his speech by comparing Russian president Vladimir Putin with Hitler, claiming that Putin is “on the march” in Europe just as Hitler was in 1941, and that just as in those days, if he is not stopped in Ukraine he will continue to rampage through the continent. It was blatant fearmongering, based on no evidence. In fact, as Putin told Tucker Carlson just weeks ago, he has no interest in taking the war beyond Ukraine. But Biden is determined to spend another $61 billion on the failed proxy war in Ukraine and he is willing to say whatever he feels necessary to get that money.

Biden also introduced a bizarre plan to build a temporary pier on the shores of Gaza so the U.S. could deliver aid to starving Palestinians. Considering the billions of dollars and tens of thousands of missiles we have shipped to Israel, wouldn’t it just be easier to inform the Israeli prime minister that we would either be delivering aid to Palestinians over land, or else?

In all, Biden’s final State of the Union before the election reveals a president and administration that is out of gas and out of ideas. It also reveals a country deep in bankruptcy – both moral and economic. It is high time for a nationwide movement toward liberty.

Ron and Tucker must love that Russia Today payment they get. Only an idiot would believe that Putin does not intend to go beyond Ukraine. Regardless of what Ron and Tucker tell you Putin plans to go a lot further than Ukraine. He intends to reestablish the Russian Empire. Everyone but dumbasses knows that. He wants all of Ukraine, Moldova, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania: and the Eastern half of Poland. He really does not hide that. But propagandists like Tucker and Ron, are willing to lie to the US public for money.

Putin thought he would roll over Ukraine in a matter of days. He would then move on to his secondary targets, believing the West would be too afraid to stop him. We know that if Trump had been reelected, that is what would have happened. But Trump was not elected and Ukraine did not roll over. They fought for their freedom. So now Putin needs to hold on until the West abandons Ukraine. His biggest hope is a Trump election.

As Victor Orban said. If Trump is elected he will give Ukraine to Putin and that war will end. He is right about all that. But that will not be the end of Russian aggression. Which is why Trump wants to pull us out of NATO. So he can say to Putin, do whatever you want in Europe we are not involved.

We cannot let that happen. That will be very bad for America and a disaster for the world. Putin is exactly like Hitler. He will kill anyone who gets in his way unless we stop him.

Never forget that his son Rand was in the group of senators who went over (on a 4th of July) no less and were the guests of Putin. From that point on, the GQP has been a Putin subsidiary. The only way anything they do makes sense to the average person is if you ask yourself–how would this benefit Putin? Then it all becomes very clear where that dark money has been flowing from into the GQP coffers.

Jesus Ron, did you even listen to Biden’s speech? While he may have a different worldview than you, thank god, his speech was not dark by any definition. It was very optimistic. Especially compared to creepy mom (talk about dark). He said we are going to secure Democracy, we are going to beat inflation, we are going to bring manufacturing back to America, we are going to restore middle-class prosperity, we are going to make giant corporations and the very wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, we are going to protect Social Security and Medicare, and we are going to stop Putin from taking over all of eastern Europe. How much more optimistic can you be than”America can accomplish anything?”

In the meantime, it is people like you, creepy mom, and Trump who paint a dark dystopian future for America.
