Since 1913, every president has delivered a State of the Union address in late February. This is done to fulfill the constitutional requirement (Article II, Section 3) that the president "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[.]" Before 1913, it has been a written report but since the advent of television and radio, it has been broadcast to the American people.
But this year something strange has happened. There’s no State of the Union address scheduled for Biden. Just last month, Biden had actually referred to making such a speech but it now appears nowhere on his schedule. And of course, the propagandist who calls herself a press secretary, Jen Psaki, claims to knows nothing about it. Naturally.
And no one in the mainstream media seems to care. In fact they’re all scrambling to defend Biden with stories about how a verbal State of the Union is not required by law. No one in the media will report on the obvious, which is that Biden’s handlers are afraid the State of the Union speech will expose his inability to give a coherent 90 minute speech and will show that he should never have become President. Unbelievably, he can’t deliver a major speech but we have put him in charge of our nuclear arsenal and negotiating with heads of state on important issues.
Indeed, Biden hasn’t even scheduled a solo press conference with the media since his election and, incredibly, the media seems to be ok with that. It appears that his team will try to minimize his public speeches for the next four years. For 108 years Americans have had their president give a speech to the nation about their plans and Biden’s refusal to maintain that tradition should have created a media firestorm, but instead, they’re making excuses for him. This only confirms that the media is no longer composed of real journalists, but advocates. Can you imagine for one second what the media would have done if Trump had declined to give a State of the Union speech?
