It’s SOTU day on KITM! David Waldman and Joan McCarter are your pregame announcers, with final preparations now underway at the White House with President Joe Biden getting some stretching in, while on the other side Sarah Huckabee Sanders is busy applying her eye black of lies. As with the Super Bowl, you can be certain it won’t be exciting, but it will be big. You never know, Balloon Bustin’ Joe could show up with the Evil Chinese Spy Balloon on a pike.

Russia's war in Ukraine might have inadvertently endangered the pipeline of cash to European politicians.
In home-grown terrorism news, the neo-Nazi couple taking out power substations around Baltimore are revealing a growing trend.
