WHAT IF tonight’s State of the Union address followed this script???

or would this be a better scenario for our country as many are being “RED PILLED” into an awakening or as Q refers to it… #TheGreatAwakening.  THE MEMO that has been on both Republican and Democrat lips for weeks was voted on yesterday to be released to the public and what a BIGGER BETTER way than live during the SOTU address tonight?!?

But many a young person has no idea the history behind this event nor the implications that tonight’s speech will carry thru their generation.  As Americans, we have been floundering these last few years with record unemployment, intensely deep seated political corruption and massive immigration issues to name a few of our current dilemmas.  So let’s start with WHAT is the SOTU and a little HISTORY LESSON?

The State of the Union Address is an annual message presented by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress, except in the first year of a new president’s term. Since 2011, the address has been held on a Tuesday. The message includes a budget message and an economic report of the nation, and also allows the President to outline his or her legislative agenda (for which the cooperation of Congress is needed) and national priorities.

The address fulfills rules in Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, requiring the President to periodically “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.” During most of the country’s first century, the President primarily only submitted a written report to Congress. After 1913, Woodrow Wilson, the 28th U.S. President, began the regular practice of delivering the address to Congress in person as a way to rally support for his agenda. With the advent of radio and television, the address is now broadcast live across the country on many networks, and thus is also used by the President as a platform to speak directly to the American people.

Warren Harding’s 1922 speech was the first to be broadcast on radio, albeit to a limited audience, while Calvin Coolidge’s 1923 speech was the first to be broadcast across the nation. Harry S. Truman’s 1947 address was the first to be broadcast on television. Lyndon B. Johnson’s address in 1965 was the first delivered in the evening. Three years later, in 1968, television networks in the United States, for the first time, imposed no time limit for their coverage of a State of the Union address. Delivered by Lyndon B. Johnson, this address was followed by extensive televised commentary by, among others, Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Milton Friedman. Ronald Reagan’s 1986 State of the Union Address is the only one to have been postponed. He had planned to deliver it on January 28, 1986 but postponed it for a week after learning of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster and instead addressed the nation on the day’s events. Bill Clinton’s 1997 address was the first broadcast available live on the World Wide Web.

Customarily, one cabinet member (the designated survivor) does not attend, in order to provide continuity in the line of succession in the event that a catastrophe disables the President, the Vice President, and other succeeding officers gathered in the House chamber. Additionally, since the September 11 attacks in 2001, a few members of Congress have been asked to relocate to undisclosed locations for the duration of the speech.

It is one of the few instances when all three branches of the US government are assembled under one roof: members of both houses of Congress constituting the legislature, the President’s Cabinet constituting the executive, and the Chief Justice and Associate Justices of the Supreme Court constituting the judiciary. In addition, the military is represented by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, while foreign governments are represented by the Dean of the Diplomatic Corps. [1]

Historic speeches [1] [2]

  • President James Monroe first stated the Monroe Doctrine during his seventh annual State of the Union Address to Congress on December 2, 1823. It became a defining moment in the foreign policy of the United States and one of its longest-standing tenets, and would be invoked by many U.S. statesmen and several U.S. presidents, including Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan.
  • The Four Freedoms were goals first articulated by Franklin D. Roosevelt on January 6, 1941. In an address known as the Four Freedoms speech, he proposed four fundamental freedoms that people “everywhere in the world” ought to enjoy: freedom of speech and expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.
  • During his State of the Union Address on January 11, 1944, FDR proposed the Second Bill of Rights. Roosevelt’s argument was that the “political rights” guaranteed by the constitution and the Bill of Rights had “proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness”.
  • During his State of the Union address on January 8, 1964, Lyndon B. Johnson introduced legislation that would come to be known as the “War on Poverty”. This legislation was proposed by Johnson in response to a national poverty rate of around nineteen percent. The speech led the United States Congress to pass the Economic Opportunity Act, which established the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) to administer the local application of federal funds targeted against poverty.
  • During his State of the Union address on January 15, 1975, Gerald R. Ford very bluntly stated that “the state of the Union is not good: Millions of Americans are out of work… We depend on others for essential energy. Some people question their Government’s ability to make hard decisions and stick with them; they expect Washington politics as usual.” and how he didn’t “expect much, if any, applause. The American people want action, and it will take both the Congress and the President to give them what they want. Progress and solutions can be achieved, and they will be achieved.”
  • In his 2002 State of the Union Address, President George W. Bush identified North Korea, Iran, and Iraq as representing significant threats to the United States. He said, “States like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world”. In this speech, he would outline the objectives for the War on Terror.
 So now that we have a basic understanding of the background of SOTU addresses and we’ve discussed a few of the historic speeches and their makers.  The SOTU was originally given as a written document to be dispersed to the masses but has morphed into a very large and widely watched event that is broadcast to an audience of millions.
Let’s turn to more modern SOTU speeches given and the memorable moments they created…

MEMORABLE State Of The Union MOMENTS from Years Gone By

Last year Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had difficulty staying awake and when asked about it afterward, SC Justice Ginsburg stated “I drank before president’s speech.”  Not passing judgement but the below video speaks for itself. [3]

The prior year brought about a firestorm of controversy concerning several words that then President B. Hussein Obama injected into his address.  the words “transgender”, “lesbian” and “bisexual” were debuted earning BHO praise from the LGQBTP communities.

In the 2010 SOTU address, SC Judge Samuel Alito was photoed obviously refuting comments by BHO concerning the controversial decision Citizen United Insurance. Image [4]

Then there is the photo of BHO while he is supposedly writing his upcoming SOTU address.  The photographer was utilizing the front image overlaying the back image of the then president.

Prior to BHO, then Prsident William “Bill” Clinton provided us with a few memorable moments of his own.  In this image taken for the 1996 SOTU address, Clinton is discussing “BIG GOVERNMENT” and stating that it is over on his watch… HMMMM… image [4]

Bill Clinton 1996 SOTU address

And we can’t forget the previous year, where Clinton condemned illegal immigrants as lawbreakers and accused them of robbing Americans of jobs and taxes…


Taking another turn down memory lane led us to George HW Bush and an “ILLUMINATING” comment he added to his 1991 SOTU address. image [4]

But that held nothing compared to Tricky “Dick” Nixon and his last SOTU address in 1974 before being ousted from office for the very same topic. image [4]

Another tradition of the State of the Union addresses is the DISTINGUISHED GUESTS that are invited and sit with the First Lady during the speech.  These are a few of the notable ones of days gone by starting with the final SOTU by BH Obama. [5]

For tonight’s 2018 State of the Union, the expected Distinguished Guests are: [6] [7]

Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez and Freddy Cuevas – Four of the guests include parents of two girls — Kayla Cuevas,15, and Nisa Mickens,16 — who were murdered in 2016 by members of the MS-13 gang in New York. Trump has spoken frequently about the destructiveness of MS-13 and its relationship to illegal immigration, promising to “destroy” the gang.

Agent Celestino “CJ” Martinez – Another guest that will center on immigration is Agent Celestino “CJ” Martinez, who is a Supervisory Special Agent for the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations unit and whose investigations have led to more than 100 arrests of MS-13 gang members, according to the White House.


Jon Bridgers, David Dahlberg – The first lady also welcomes heroes that stepped up in the face of natural disasters, including Jon Bridgers, who with his non-profit rescue and recovery organization, Cajun Navy, helped victims of Hurricane Harvey. David Dahlberg, who saved 62 children and staff members from a raging wildfire in California, will also attend.

Corey Adams – The President, who is sure to highlight his success with getting tax cuts through Congress, will likely point to Corey Adams in the first lady’s box as an example of its success. Although not yet kicked into paychecks, Adams and his wife have decided to invest their money from the cuts into their daughters’ education savings, according to the White House.

Officer Ryan Holets – Officer Ryan Holets, who has been shot twice serving as a police officer in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and who adopted a baby with his wife from parents who suffered from opioid addiction, that he met while on patrol, will attend.

Ashlee Leppert – An aviation electronics technician in the United States Coast Guard, Ashlee Leppert rescued dozens of Americans during last year’s hurricane season.

Staff Sgt. Justin Peck – Army Staff Sgt. Justin Peck saved the life of a fellow soldier in November who was seriously wounded by an IED blast in Syria. The team he was serving in was working to clear IEDs from territory previously held by ISIS. (no photo available at publishing time)

We have gotten word that Justice Ginsburg has “prior commitments and will not be attending the 2018 State of the Union address”  tonight.

This just in…. Scuttlebutt is that those opposed to President Trump will be misbehaving and acting immaturely by booing and being generally disruptive during this important speech to address the American citizens.  Also the rumors of ICE agents being in attendance may be in fact true but as of press time, ADN is unable to substantiate these claims.  But no matter which side of the aisle you are on, tonight promises to be an epic moment in America’s history.
