271. State of the Union Special Edition. How Did Biden Do? Did He Move Independents? Dissecting The Big Night From Cannabis to Ukraine to Veterans to Forgotistan.

Welcome to a special State of the Union recap special edition episode of Independent Americans. 

Normally, the State of the Union address is a civics lesson, pageantry and performance. Normally, it doesn’t move the needle. 

But last night was different. It was the most important SOTU in a generation. Voters were watching. Including millions who are still on the fence. And especially independent Americans. 

And so was Paul Rieckhoff. He’s been a guest at the State of the Union himself twice. And he’s got a quick, independent, no-BS breakdown of the big night. 

If you missed it, this is a quick (and independent) breakdown. And if you didn’t miss it, this is a take you haven’t heard anywhere else. With an important focus on what was most important. 

How’d Biden do? And did this big night make a difference? What did the partisans and corporate media miss?

Press play and find out.

Every episode of Independent Americans hosted by Paul Rieckhoff is the truth beyond the headlines–and light to contrast the heat of other politics and news shows. It’s content for the 49% of Americans that proudly call themselves independent. And it always delivers the Righteous Media 5 Is: independence, integrity, information, inspiration and impact. Always with a unique focus on national security, foreign affairs and military and veterans issues. This is another pod to help you stay vigilant. Because vigilance is the price of democracy. In these trying times especially, Independent Americans will continue to be your trusted place for independent news, politics, inspiration and hope.
