“I have this strange notion, we are a democracy … if you can’t get the votes … you can’t legislate by executive order unless you’re a dictator. We’re a democracy. We need consensus.”
Joe Biden’ s statement in October about Donald Trump’s use of Executive Orders.
President or Dictator? If Joe Biden were to answer that question, by his own definition, he would have to say Dictator. Maybe he will need to redesign the Presidential Seal and he will simply have that done by Executive Order.
Donald Trump signed 220 Executive Orders in his four years as President. That is 55 per YEAR….Joe Biden has put his signature on 37 EOs in his FIRST WEEK. Even the liberal New York Times is asking him to hit the brakes.
Ease Up on the Executive Actions, Joe. President Biden is right to not let his agenda be held hostage, but legislating through Congress is a better path. NY Times Editorial Board
So what is so urgent that with control of the White House, The Senate and The House, Joe cannot wait to legislate, he needs to dictate. With the Pandemic gripping our nation and that being the single thing that Biden supporters sent him to Washington to tackle, most of those EOs must involve our War on COVID. If you thought that you would be wrong. Let’s look at the urgent situations that Joe could not wait to address.
1. Executive order rejoining the Paris Agreement on climate change
2. Executive order to promote racial equity
3. Executive order revising immigration enforcement policies
4. Executive order incorporating undocumented immigrants into census
5. Executive order refocusing on the climate crisis and canceling the Keystone XL permit
6. Executive order banning discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation
7. Proclamation pulling funds from border wall
8. Executive order reversing transgender military ban
9. Executive order to end reliance on private prisons
10. Memorandum expanding access to reproductive health care
How’s that for a Top 10? I am sure the Squad is feeling pretty empowered. The LGBTQ community just found the gold at the end of their rainbows. Planned Parenthood just gave out bonuses when the ink was dry even though it means the deaths of millions of unborn babies. And oh yeah…strike up the bands for the marching caravans from the South…stimulus checks, vaccinations and voter registration cards await you at the border.
All of these actions are signed by a President who claims he is a moderate. Claims he can work with both parties in Congress and who says we can impeach Donald Trump and still have Congress do it’s job. Sorry, these are the actions of a President beholden to the Radical Left. This is a President who some feared would be a puppet and is already caught up and tangled in the strings. This is a President who has shown us in just 10 days what we can expect….the promised Transformation of America. Nancy, Chuck and Bernie are old but Joe has given them a tingle up their legs that they thought they had forever lost.
