Illinois GOP Congresswoman Mary Miller, apparently fed-up with President Bidens habit of prevaricating, said bluntly that she will not attend his State of the Union speech on Tuesday.
Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up President Trumps State of the Union Address, which celebrated a secure border, support for our military, and American energy independence, Miller stated. Joe Bidens presidency has been filled with lie after lie, especially lies about the border being secure, inflation being temporary, and the DOJ targeting parents for attending school board meetings. I will not be attending Bidens State of the Union to listen to him lie about the damage he has caused to our country while the left-wing media and members of Congress applaud his lies.
Miller referenced Bidens statements about retaining classified documents as Vice President, his familys business dealings with China and gas prices.
I will be giving my guest ticket to Air Force Colonel (Ret) Mark A. Hurley of Sherman, Illinois, who retired from the military because of Bidens unjust COVID vaccine mandate, she promised. Biden used the COVID vaccine mandate as a political purge to force the best and the brightest out of our military, and Biden has still failed to provide accountability for his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan more than two years ago.
Hurley responded, Its an honor to be able to personally thank Congresswoman Miller and Speaker McCarthy for their efforts to end the COVID vaccine requirement for military members. These legislative leaders continued the battle we did not have time to complete through our normal chain of command. We are truly grateful for the thousands of military careers they have saved.
Over the weekend, Miller said of Biden, We have a man who is compromised. Our national security is compromised because Joe Biden is compromised.
Miller, who raises grain and cattle with her husband, had introduced legislation in 2022 titled National Security Moratorium on Foreign Purchases of U.S. Land to prevent China and other foreign countries from buying land in America.
We have an inherent responsibility to put our own citizens first, and the National Security Moratorium on Foreign Purchases of U.S. Land does just that, Miller said. In recent years, we have seen foreign investors flood the market, increasing home prices for Americans. This is especially an issue in Rural America where the Chinese Communist Party is attempting to buy land in our country, with an emphasis on farmland, to gain strategic leverage over the United States.
