Based on his slew of executive orders on his first day in office, Biden wasn’t so much about bringing the country together in unity, as his inauguration theme proposed, but rather he seemingly wanted to pacify the angry left-wing fringe groups that help make up way too much of his voter base. It almost appears that the everyday blue collar working person that made up the majority of the Democrat base has become practically nonexistent these days.
And what has Biden accomplished with his thirty plus executive orders, directives, and instructions for legislative priorities to the despicable Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer? Well let’s look at what this administration has in store for America as sleepy Joe slams on the brakes, yanks the steering wheel to the left, and makes a sharp U-turn back into the sub-two percent GDP growth and infringements on constitutional rights that were hallmarks of the Obama administration.
First off, Biden has made the stopping of the Keystone XL pipeline construction a huge priority in a nod to his environmental extremist base. In doing so, he has already cost tens of thousands of jobs, many of which are union jobs that supposedly supported Joe. Ironically, by stopping the pipeline from fields in Canada to refineries in Texas, Joe Biden has effectively made the cost of energy to go up in one fell swoop of his pen in the very near future. Of course, this will impact the poorest Americans with increased gas, heating, and energy prices. Further, he has endangered the environment as that oil will now be put in trucks to transport across the country with far more inherent risks of accidents than what the pipeline ever posed. To add insult to injury, Biden’s Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has already been floating the idea of a gas tax increase.
Second, as if that isn’t enough to kill jobs and increase energy prices, Biden plans on rejoining the Paris accords which hamstrings America in the name of negligible environmental gains at the cost of jobs and trillions of dollars, while China and India are able to still pollute with abandon. Where is the upside for the planet with this, let alone America? This is just one more example of Marxist policy and controls hiding under the guise of environmentalism.
Third, illegal immigration is being supported by Biden as he halts construction on the border wall, works on a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, and looks to halt deportations. I guess adding new Democrat voters somehow justifies ignoring a majority of Americans’ thoughts on this issue. One does find it interesting to note that Biden wants to stop building a wall on our southern border to protect the nation from illegal aliens, but is fine with building a wall around the capitol to keep out American citizens.
Fourth, as if giving illegal aliens citizenship and thereby voting rights isn’t enough of an affront to our republic, Joe and his Democrat Socialists want to make Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico into additional states, as these would-be perpetual Democrat strongholds and add four more Democrat/Socialist senators to the upper chamber. A bill has already been put forth in the house regarding D.C. statehood accordingly.
The only problem with this is that Article I, Section 8 of our constitution provides explicitly for a national capital that would not be part of a state nor treated as a state, but rather a unique enclave under the exclusive authority of Congress — a neutral “district” in which representatives of all the states could meet on an equal footing to conduct the nation’s business. Far be it for Democrats to actually abide by the constitution though.
Fifth, with our nation floundering in enormous debt, “devout Catholic” Joe Biden thinks it is a good use of taxpayer dollars to federally fund more abortions, including on an international level. It is morally repugnant enough to be killing our unborn children, let alone funding this with our tax dollars. Why this is so vitally important to Biden, including doing this on an international scale is beyond ghoulish. We are endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights to LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness -- unless you are an unborn child and devout Catholic Joseph Biden sits in the oval office.
It doesn’t stop there though. Joe thinks that biological males should be able to compete in women’s sports and transgender people should be able to serve in the military. Despite the left’s anti-science view on the issue, there is indeed a biological difference between men and women. Joe has insured that transgender men will now be dominating many women’s sports at biological women’s expense in the years to come. Further, the fact of the matter is that there are typically many attributable psychological troubles that are attached to transgender individuals. I think these people should be given our prayers and our help where possible, but putting them in highly stressful circumstances in the armed forces seems like an exceptionally bad idea to anyone that stops to consider the real-world ramifications of this foolish and potentially dangerous decision.
Seventh, Joe Biden wants to do away with the falsely named “Muslim Ban” that President Trump expanded slightly from the existing program under the Obama Administration. Trump simply wanted to eliminate immigration to America by people from certain Middle Eastern nations which were potentially hostile towards America and that we were unable to vet the backgrounds of the people coming here. It was a measure to protect American citizens from potential terrorists. Put America last again, Joe.
But Joe has agreed with the leftist rhetoric that it is xenophobic and hateful. This is so much so that Joe also intends to re-engage with the leading state-sponsored terrorist nation of Iran in the egregiously and perniciously flawed Iran nuclear deal. Joe thinks allowing Iran to thumb their noses at us as we literally pay them billions of dollars under Obama to continue their nuclear weapons program is a fine idea.
Ninth, Biden didn’t think we citizens were worthy of knowing before the election, as he specifically stated, what he would do regarding packing the Supreme Court of the United States. Well, he has enacted a commission already to see what needs to be done to reform the court so that no constitutionally conservative opinion will ever be rendered from SCOTUS ever again. So much for co-equal branches of government.
Tenth, the leftist minions mock the fact that Joe and the left want to take away legal firearms from citizens. They aren’t necessarily trying to do this through a direct ban on guns yet, but I am sure the “more than ten round magazines” and the scary looking “military style” weapons will be the subjects of specific gun banning legislation soon. The more immediate threat though is Biden’s stated desire to is repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. This law states that firearms manufacturers cannot be sued for the illegal use of their products by other people. You see, the anti-gun left was trying to sue firearms companies for criminals illegally using guns. They would not win these cases typically, but the burden on gun manufacturers having to defend against each lawsuit was potentially reaching the point of bankruptcy for some. The legislation was passed to protect a legitimate, legal, and constitutionally recognized business from being attacked by people that simply did not like guns. Biden wants to repeal this law and thereby jeopardize gun manufacturers to the anti-gun vultures on the left. This gives him plausible deniability that HE didn’t take away your guns. There simply weren’t companies left that could manufacture a weapon at a reasonable price anymore. This is akin to car manufacturers being held responsible for the actions of drunk drivers. Common sense has often been at war with the left though.
There are dozens of other issues that Joe Biden has sought to do battle against in his first two weeks in office as well. He isn’t just content to destroy America’s energy independence and the jobs that it created, but he wants to rejoin the China-lackey World Health Organization that was an accessory to the spread of the China virus we all know as Covid-19. He also wants to disband the vitally necessary DOD Space Force Department. He even is so threatened by the truth that he wants the 1776 commission disbanded. It was created as a necessary truth alternative to the fictional accounts of the 1619 project. As Colonel Nathan Jessup once said, evidently Biden cannot handle the truth. And disparate ideas, grounded in truth, are definitely something the left does not want to contend with. Far better to eliminate opposing viewpoints. Bye bye free speech!
So, in two short weeks we have gone from what was a rising
America-first agenda, where the economy was growing, the nation was energy
independent, our constitutional rights were relatively secure, and our nation
and its borders and interests were protected to a hate-America agenda where Gitmo
terrorists are offered Covid19 vaccines ahead of citizens, our borders are
opened to illegals, and our tax dollars are being offered up on the altar of
global Marxism… errr… I meant environmentalism.
Yep. These next four years under
the Big Guy, if he can cognitively last that long, will be one hell of a downward
ride. But America will know its place
once again, under Biden, and it won’t be number one.
