Republican Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL) has announced that she will not attend Democratic President Joe Biden’s upcoming State of the Union Address because she does not want 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 issued a statement in which she refers to Biden’s statements as vice president regarding preserving confidential papers, his family’s business links with China, and gas costs.
“Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up President Trump’s State of the Union Address, which celebrated a secure border, support for our military, and American energy independence,” Miller said.
“Joe Biden’s 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 Biden’s 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.
“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 Biden’s unjust COVID vaccine mandate.
“Biden has still failed to provide accountability for his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan more than two years ago.”
“It’s 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.”
Miller also wants the government to prohibit foreign agricultural purchases.
The representative, who farms grain and cattle with her husband, proposed legislation to prohibit China from purchasing American property in 2022.
“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.
“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.”
Joe Biden’s presidency has been filled with lie after lie.
I will not be attending Biden’s 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.

I just introduced my first bill of the 118th Congress to ban China and our adversaries from purchasing U.S. farmland. It's time to put America First! pic.twitter.com/LOlu16WPo3
