President-elect Joe Biden is set to go on an executive order blitz as soon as he’s signed in as President.
The incoming Commander-in-Chief is set to sign 15 executive orders and two additional executive actions that strike down a number of Trump’s signature laws.
What Will Biden Overturn?
Biden’s first priority will be to strike down the Trump travel ban that was put in place to stop countries which Trump considered to have an increased risk to US national security. The order was originally pitched by Trump as a Muslim ban but later adapted. Biden will also strike down orders on building the wall with Mexico.
According to Biden’s Press Secretary Jen Psaki the actions will be done by afternoon and show that Biden wants to get things done as soon as he’s in office.
“He wants to roll up his sleeves and get to work as quickly as possible,” Psaki said.
Biden Will Reverse ‘a Stain on Our Nation’
Biden’s incoming National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said that switching away from support for a border wall and the travel ban will get rid of “a stain on our nation.”
“It was rooted in xenophobia and religious animus and President-elect Biden has been clear that we will not turn our back on our values with discriminatory bans on entry to the United States,” Sullivan said.
On the wall, Sullivan said Biden is going to flip the switch and immediately start retreating from the wall’s construction by ordering “an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legal basis for the funding, as well as the contract methods being used.”
The order will also “determine the best ways to redirect funds that were diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction.”
“Biden will move swiftly to reverse some of President Trump’s most divisive & far-reaching actions — including abandoning Paris climate agreement & ordering the deportation of Dreamers — by issuing a bundle of executive orders”…

Back into the Paris Climate Agreement and the WHO
In addition, Biden will flex his globalist muscles, getting American back into the Paris Climate Agreement to fight climate change and into the World Health Organization which Trump left in 2017 (and which he turned out to be right about given their awful handling and misinformation about the COVID pandemic).
Biden is also going to sign executive actions to make sure people have an extension before being potentially evicted. He’s also going to stop building of the Keystone XL pipeline, order that illegal immigrants and undocumented workers be counted in US census counts, make even more rules for businesses not to discriminate against LGBT and minorities and give permanent residence status to Dreamers who are in the US under DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).
Democratic Hypocrisy Strikes Again
After hearing so much about how Trump was an “authoritarian” who loved dictators and was a danger to democracy it’s remarkable and revolting to see the mainstream media fawn over Biden.
This includes the massive lockdown on the National Mall, the alarmism over the Capitol riots and the upcoming roster of executive orders.
Don Lemon on CNN was practically giddy with excitement looking forward to Biden, while even more mainstream anchors have talked about the incoming president as if he’s a therapist who will help them “feel” better.
Because that’s the truth.
The last four years of controversy was never about Trump being a good or bad President. It was about the feelings of progressive journalists and media figures who had their feelings hurt.
Legislation and leadership should be based on America’s national interest, not personal opinions and changing emotions.
How much do you trust an incoming President whose focus will be soothing the feelings of spoiled progressive Americans?
