Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders delivered the Republican response to President Biden's State of the Union address.
Despite being in office for just a few weeks, Arkansas GOP Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders is no stranger to the limelight and her rising star shined bright on Tuesday night during her Republican rebuttal to President Biden's second State of the Union address.
The youngest governor in America, Sanders began her speech talking about her experiences as a mother that left her "not believing much of anything I heard tonight from President Biden."
Reiterating that America is the "greatest country the world has known" because it is the "freest" ever known, Sanders affirmed the belief that "government exists not to rule the people, but to serve the people."
Contrasting herself with Biden, Sanders said "At 40, I’m the youngest governor in the country. At 80, he’s the oldest president in American history. I'm the first woman to lead my state, he's the first man to surrender his presidency to a woke mob that can’t even tell you what a woman is," the governor said, rightly turning up the heat on Democrats.
Blasting Biden and the "radical left" for its vision for Americans that "taxes you and lights your hard-earned money on fire" while "you get crushed with high gas prices, empty grocery shelves, and our children are taught to hate one another on account of their race, but not to love one another or our great country," Sanders didn't let those across the aisle off the hook for anything.
"Whether Joe Biden believes this madness or is simply too weak to resist it, his administration has been completely hijacked by the radical left," Sanders said. "The dividing line in America is no longer between right or left — the choice is between normal or crazy."
While her fledgling administration acted swiftly to roll back woke policies starting on day one, Sanders contrasted the freedom of thought and conscience championed by Republicans with the left's intolerance that requires Americans to "partake in their rituals, salute their flags, and worship their false idols, all while big government colludes with Big Tech to strip away the most American thing there is—your freedom of speech."
Saying "the Biden administration seems more interested in woke fantasies than the hard reality Americans face every day," Sanders explained that "most Americans simply want to live their lives in freedom and peace, but we are under attack in a left-wing culture war we didn’t start and never wanted to fight."
"That’s not normal," Sanders said speaking for Republicans and countless Americans. "It’s crazy, and it’s wrong."
Laying out what she and her party offer as a contrast to Biden and Democrats, Sanders explained that "Republicans believe in an America where strong families thrive in safe communities, where jobs are abundant, and paychecks are rising, where the freedom our veterans shed their blood to defend is the birthright of every man, woman, and child."
Biden, on the other hand, has made Americans less safe. "Beyond our border, from Afghanistan to Ukraine, from North Korea to Iran, President Biden’s weakness puts our nation and the world at risk," Sanders said. “And the President’s refusal to stand up to China, our most formidable adversary, is dangerous and unacceptable."
The current president, Huckabee Sanders explains, "is simply unfit to serve as Commander in Chief."
"This is our moment, this is our opportunity," Sanders told Americans, for "a new generation born in the waning decades of the last century, shaped by economic booms and stock market busts, forged by the triumph of the Cold War and the tragedy of 9/11. A generation brimming with passion and new ideas to solve age-old problems. A generation moored to our deepest values and oldest traditions, yet unafraid to challenge the present order and find a better way forward."
The immediate response to Sanders' rebuttal was glowing.
What Now For The Trojan Horse?
By Rick Hayes
Biden was the Democrat left's version of the 21st century's Trojan Horse. Get the 78-year-old inside the Whitehouse pretending to be a gift to the American people, and then let the real puppet masters emerge and change the nation's demographics, destroy the economy and transform every social norm.
For two years, Biden did precisely what the Democrat socialists wanted him to do; run to podiums, mumble and then wander away. Smile, wave, and lie. And in the process, the southern border became a never ending floodgate of illegal aliens and a wide-open path of deadly drugs. Inflation halted the buying power of most Americans, and American streets became crime-infested homeless camps—Uncle Joe - The gift that kept on giving.
The propaganda media, working with the Department of Justice, to obscure the Biden family's long history of corruption was remarkable. The tell-all interview regarding the long partnership between a Chinese energy firm and the Biden family by Hunter Biden's partner Tony Bobulinski on the Tucker Carlson show was squashed. The F.B.I. did a marvelously malevolent job discounting and lying to the American people regarding the content and even the existence of Hunter Biden's laptop.
So, the Trojan Horse flawlessly performed the task it was designed to do, but now came the glitch; Lo and behold, the fake leader of the free world wants to stay.
Somehow, in all the confusion of corruption and millions of dollars flowing from China into the Biden coffers, Joe didn't read the memo that the charade is finished after one term.
The swamp realized that the Trojan Horse was no longer needed and had become a liability. There were new Democrat communist plans for 2024, and they don't include uncle Joe.
As always, the left will do what it always does; turn on itself and eat each other when their power is in jeopardy.
The mishandling of top-secret documents that have always been handled as a nothing burger for guilty Democrats like Hillary Clinton will now somehow matter for Biden.
And it looks as if Biden is holding the short end of the stick in the power struggle. What happened in 2020 will be considered one of the darkest points in American politics and its history. But this chapter does not close without benefits. Hopefully, the American people, especially the youth, will realize that conservatives are not perfect, but they do love this country and individual freedom, and as far as the Democrat left is concerned, you are only valuable as long as you are helpful to the communist cause.
