Will We Ever Get A SOTU Address From Joe Biden?

By Danita Knickerbocker

There have been rumors, from both sides of the isle, about the State Of The Union (SOTU) Address. Rumors involving when it is required to happen and the precedent of when it has happened in the past. I even played into these rumors for a few days until I started doing my own research for this article. First, I want to put it out there that Joe Biden was scheduled to do the SOTU Address on February 3, 2021. That date was later canceled and his speech was scheduled for February 23, 2021. The most prominent rumor from the Conservative side of the isle is that Joe Biden is Constitutionally bound to give the SOTU Address by February 28 of the year he was inaugurated, which would have been this last Sunday. But he didn’t. So now the question is: What does the Constitution say about the SOTU Address and when it must be given?

Well, instead of just stating more rumors I will give you the excerpt from the U.S. Constitution itself. Article II – The Executive Branch, Section 3 – State of the Union, Convening Congress, of the U.S. Constitution1 reads as follows:

He 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; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.”

Nowhere in U.S. Constitution: Article II Section 3 does it state that the president must give the SOTU Address by any certain date.

Now to introduce the most famous rumor from the Liberal side of the isle. The rumor there is no real precedent in the matter. Except there is. It is a long lasting precedent, since 1934,3 for the SOTU Address to be given by the newly inaugurated President of The United States within January/February2 of the year in which they are inaugurated. The last 5 presidents have pushed their first SOTU Address off until their second year in office for different reasons, one of those being that the election was contested; Bush v. Gore, Trump v. Clinton. But the contested 2020 election has all but been decided by the Supreme Court with their refusal to look at the mounds of voter fraud evidence, and in holding accountable many individual Secretary’s of State for their illegal bypassing of state legislators to make changes to election laws last minute.

If Joe Biden and his administration are so sure that he is the rightful winner of the 2020 election, then what is the hold up? Could it be that his own party, which now controls every branch of government, does not trust him to display the mental capacity U.S. Citizens expect from a sitting president? Might this also be why on Tuesday February 23, 2021, House Democrats requested4 that he give up his access to the U.S. nuclear codes? His own party does not trust him with the nuclear codes. Just days after House Dems asked that he give up his power to launch nuclear bombs, Joe Biden ordered5 the bombing of a facility in Syria on Thursday February 25, 2021, ending many innocent lives in the process.

Conservatives have been pointing out Joe Biden’s obvious mental decline since the early 2010s, but seemed to have more quality examples during 2020 because of Biden’s time in the spotlight. Even though he was not in the spotlight near to what President Trump was, the amount of videos accessible showing Biden’s fast decline became undeniable. Yet, the media continued to try their best at covering it up until AFTER the election. In an April 2020 ABC6 interview, Biden said:

“We have never, never let our democracy sakes second fiddle a way that we can both have a democracy and elections and at the same time, correct the public health.”

We also have his reading7 of the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created by, go, you know, you know, the thing.”

Just last week while Biden was addressing FEMA during the weather crisis9 in Texas, he thanked male governor Greg Abbott, by calling him “Ms. Abbott” and then continued on to say:

“…and representatives show Shirley Jackson Lee, Al Green, Sylvia Garcia, Lizzi Pinelli, uh, um, excuse me, Pinnell. And uh, what am I doing here?”

Dr. Todd Grande, a psychologist from the podcast True Crime Psychology and Personality, explains different stages and symptoms of dementia and how that might correlate to Joe Biden’s mental state. Dr. Grande states in one of his YouTube videos regarding Joe Biden8 in August 2020:

“He doesn’t seem to know what numbers mean, like that they can be used to count. For example he (Biden) said that 150 million Americans have been killed by guns since 2007. Just to put that into perspective, there are about 330 million people in the United States. Which means that Biden believes that gun violence killed 45% of the US population in 13 years. Between 70 and 85 million people died in WWII. So he believes that gun violence from 2007 to 2020 killed about twice as many people as died in WWII.”

This is only a miniscule portion of the examples you can find online in regards to Biden’s extreme mental decline in the last 10 years. The amount of instances shown in the last year has been exponential and the mainstream media only started covering Biden’s “possible cognitive decline” after the election.

So the important questions you might ask yourself are these:

  • Why would the mainstream media go to such great lengths to cover up the cognitive decline of their primary candidate in the U.S. presidential race?
  • If Biden has truly won the election and there is nothing further to dispute regarding the fraud in the 2020 election, then why hasn’t Biden given his first SOTU Address?
  • Why would his own party’s representatives show distrust in his power to maintain the U.S. nuclear codes?
  • What more can you do to educate yourself on the events of today, this month, this year, etc. and how the political sphere affects your daily life?
