When George W. Bush first took office, he didn’t issue any executive orders for a month. When Obama took office, he waited about three days to jump into action. When Donald Trump took his oath, his only executive orders for the first month were undoing illegal Obama orders. You can clearly remember the first thing President Trump did that was new. The media called it a Muslim ban.
Joe Biden signed five orders on his first day, and he has plans to sign roughly two dozen by the end of his first week. He’s getting aggressive, and as you might imagine, his entire agenda puts America at risk.
The first thing Biden did was to reverse President Trump’s order that restricted immigration from a number of adversarial countries. The so-called Muslim ban never targeted Muslims, but every country on the list has large numbers of people sworn to kill U.S. citizens. So, Biden pretended like it was a nice thing for him to make it easier for terrorists to kill us.
The great irony is that the ban was derived from a travel restriction drafted under Obama — when Biden was vice president. Luckily for Biden, we live in a country in which the media covers for Democrats hypocrisy, corruption, and wrongdoings.
For anyone who remembers the Paris Climate Accord, it was a cudgel that was intended to bludgeon the U.S. into paying for stuff for other countries. Since President Trump took us out of the agreement, the U.S. has led the world in reducing carbon emissions. No mainstream media channel ever mentioned that fact to viewers though. Meanwhile, every single member of the climate accord has increased their emissions since joining. But, good job Joe. This sure told the weather to start behaving.
Covering a very different topic, Joe moved on to the pandemic. He wants to implement a complete federal mask mandate, but he can’t. It would be extremely illegal. So instead, he signed a mandate requiring masks on all federal grounds and interstate travel, the only place he has authority to.
Let’s look at the obvious. Masks very clearly haven’t helped a damned bit since the epidemic started. The country has been wearing them for almost a year. But, Joe’s 100 days of wearing masks is going to coincide with the distribution of around 100 million vaccines. He’ll get to take credit for stopping the pandemic, even though it is really the vaccines developed in record time under the Trump Administration.
Slightly less awful, Biden extended a freeze on student loans and evictions. Considering state governments across the country are outlawing commerce, this one isn’t completely ridiculous. In fact, it’s straight plagiarism of President Trump’s policy. You can be sure Joe will take full credit for it.
This guy has no idea that all of this was just passed into law.
Stop plagiarizing the last relief bill and tell Democrat governors to OPEN the economy. https://t.co/BFOhH8ZJo0

In the final twist of irony, While Biden was mandating masks across the country, he also signed a set of rules for opening schools. The funny part is that the regulations might end up forcing a bunch of schools to open, even if they don’t want to. It took him all of five minutes in office to completely contradict himself.
Biden has held the position for mere hours, and he is already jeopardizing American lives, selling out the American economy and trying to take political credit for things that were done under the Trump administration.
