Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds criticized President Joe Biden’s foreign and domestic policy on Tuesday in the Republican response speech to the State of the Union address.
“This is not the same country it was a year ago,” Reynolds said. “The president tried to paint a different picture tonight, but his actions over the last 12 months don’t match the rhetoric.”
Reynolds, an Iowa native and grandmother of 11, said she felt the country has moved backward instead of making progress.
“We’re now one year into his presidency, and instead of moving America forward, it feels like President Biden and his party have sent us back in time to the late ’70s and early ’80s when runaway inflation was hammering families, a violent crime wave was crashing our cities, and the Soviet army was trying to redraw the world map,” she said.
Biden’s presidency has been a series of foreign policy blunders, Reynolds argued, beginning with the Afghanistan withdrawal and most recently Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“Now, all Americans must stand united in solidarity with the brave people of Ukraine as they courageously defend their country against [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s tyranny as they fight for their freedom,” Reynolds said. “But we shouldn’t ignore what happened in the run-up to Putin’s invasion: waiving sanctions on Russian pipelines while eliminating oil production here at home, focusing on political correctness rather than military readiness, reacting to world events instead of driving them.”
Reynolds said Biden’s poor domestic policy has made the U.S. weak at the global level.
“Weakness on the world stage has a cost, and the president’s approach to foreign policy has consistently been too little, too late,” Reynolds said. “It’s time to lead. But we can’t project strength abroad if we’re weak at home.”

Reynolds critiqued the Biden administration’s fiscal, education, and immigration policies, as well as the president’s response to the pandemic. She touted her COVID-19 policies in Iowa, which included being the first state in the country to reopen schools for full-time in-person learning, and criticized Democrats who tell Americans to stay home or wear masks while often going maskless themselves.
“You’ve heard the excuses. They were ‘just holding their breath,’” Reynolds said. “But it’s the American people who are waiting to exhale, waiting for the insanity to stop.”
Reynolds said the solution to problems facing America is not more government spending or control.
“We know that our problems require bold action, but we also know that bold action doesn’t have to mean government action,” she said.
To Reynolds, the strength of the country rests on Americans making their own choices to better their families and businesses.
“The soul of America isn’t about who lives in the White House,” Reynolds said. “It’s men and women like you in every corner of this nation who are willing to step up and take responsibility for your communities, for your neighbors, and ultimately, for yourself. By that most important measure at least, the state of our union is indeed strong.”
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
