Executive Orders by Biden Intended to Destroy Trump Legacy
Barry Nussbaum: Hello and welcome America to ATP Report. I'm Barry Nussbaum. We are going to talk today about the crazy first week of the Joe Biden presidency. When I say crazy, let me tell you what I mean. His first three days in office, our new American president, Joe Biden, signed 19 orders.
These are not laws "per se," but they are looked at as laws, and they have enforceability clauses. For the most part, all of America looks at it as though it was legislated appropriately by Congress. Meaning, the House, then the Senate, signed off and voted for it.
Then the president signed it. But it's not that; it is by fiat. It's the same as if he were a dictator. In a generalist sense, most constitutional scholars look down on executive orders—that is why you are not supposed to sign a lot of them. Let me put it in the proper context.
In his first three days in office, Joe Biden signed 19 executive orders. By comparison, in the same period, Trump signed 1, Obama 5, Bush 0, and Clinton 1.
To make matters worse, poor Joe didn't even know what he was signing. I'm not being mean. I'm being literal. The White House put out a video that you can see on YouTube. We are going to have it up on the site today.
Where Joe Biden mumbles as he's signing, quote, "I don't even know what I'm signing." This is not a joke. This is your president, ladies, and gentlemen. The majority of the executive orders were intended to unwind the policies of the Trump administration. I'm going to go through the top 13 crazy and ugly executive orders.
Executive order No. 1: Requires that people wear face masks and maintain social distancing on all federal property. This launch was included, the “One Hundred Day Mask Challenge." This encourages Americans to wear masks. What does it do to help? Well, we're not quite sure, and here's why.
Any mask under the new law is fine. You can have a paper mask that might stop a large bug. You can have a painter's mask. A painter's mask can stop most paint, but paints are a thousand times the size of a virus. You can have a cloth mask that stops nothing.
Those are the most stylish. You can put your kid's picture, and you can put your dog's picture. I have one of those. Who knows what works best? Science says the N95 mask is the most efficient mask to stop a virus.
But I have to be honest with you, it's not required. I don't even know anyone with one or where to get them. So, it would seem that social distancing is the way to go. You wear a mask, and it can be any one of a thousand different kinds.
You see people all the time in those goofy pictures from Walmart wearing their underwear on their heads. That's fine too. By the way, President Biden broke the law almost immediately when he was photographed walking around D.C., on federal property with no mask.
So, it's similar to the reporters. You know the ones that sign up for the press briefings. They're in the press room of the Oval Office. I've been in that room. It's quite small. They have their masks on while they ask their questions, and then they social distance.
The second the camera turns off, off comes the mask. How do I know that? All the videos are available on YouTube. All the do as I say, not as I do mentality that seems to be sweeping the country, especially among the elite classes.
Executive order No. 2: Biden reversed Trump's decision to remove the United States from the World Health Organization (WHO). Why did we originally withdraw from the WHO under Trump? Well, it's quite simple.
There are a number of issues. No. 1, the director-general of the Chinese Communist Party, has influenced the World Health Organization's leader, Tedros Ghebreyesus. It almost seems like the communist Chinese dictate how the WHO should be run.
But Dr. Tedros, I know you're not going to believe this; he is not even a medical doctor. He has a Ph.D., but it's not in medicine. He's a member of the Marxist Leninist Ethiopian political party that most world political scientists have labeled as perpetrators of terrorism.
The WHO director, the terrorist, defended the international organization's response to the viral outbreak. In the beginning, he said that Trump just criticized him for doing nothing because the nation of Taiwan had been instigating a campaign of racist slurs against them. There was no evidence of that ever happening. Why did he single out Taiwan?
The communist Chinese hate Taiwan and they want to control the country. U.S. funding for the WHO exceeds Chinese financial contributions by tenfold, a thousand percent. Beijing appears to maintain more influence over the U.N. entity.
Here are some words and facts about the man leading the WHO amid the coronavirus pandemic that has killed 2 million around the world. No. 1, Tedros helped Beijing hide the severity of the Chinese coronavirus outbreak.
Do you remember, about a year ago, months after health officials thought they found the first case of the virus? The WHO was putting out press releases written by the Chinese on Twitter that said there's no evidence of human to human transmission. The WHO said that.
Meanwhile, the disease was spiraling out of control. The last tweet was saying you can not transmit it from one person to another. It came out the day before the first case reached the United States. Supposedly, when a Chinese person flew from Wuhan, where it originated, to the state of Washington.
So Tedros, who has a doctorate in philosophy, specializing in community health, was supported to take over the WHO by communist China in 2017. Even though he's not trained in medicine, he's a member of the Leftist Tigrayan and People's Liberation Front, the TPLF.
This group is so violent it is labeled a terror organization. They are listed in the global terrorism database, and Tedros is a major player in the party. It gets worse. They are accused of gross human rights violations. He was influential in getting China to loan 13 billion dollars to Ethiopia.
Yet, on a repeated basis, he doesn't cut his ties to terrorism. Get this, Tedros named international terror, mass murderer Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador in 2017. It provoked outrage for medical professionals and human rights groups around the world.
In other words, Mugabe is a friend of Tedros because they're both radical terror affiliated leaders in Africa. That's the guy that Trump didn't want to do business with. In my opinion, Trump was right. In my opinion, Biden is wrong. That was a dumb executive order.
Executive order No. 3: This executive order is to extend eviction and foreclosure moratoriums. The moratorium for evictions will be extended until at least March 31st. People that can't afford the rent or can't afford to pay their mortgages don't have to, and they don't have to worry about being evicted or being foreclosed.
However, the rent still accrues, and the mortgage interest still accrues. So, let's take a look at what's going to happen in April. What do the landlords do? Maybe they have their life savings in a rental property. Now they can't pay the mortgage because the tenant is not paying them? What do the banks do?
What happens to bank stocks? With no rent coming in, no mortgage is getting paid, and balance sheets start going upside down, and what's going to happen in April? I predict mass eviction, mass foreclosures, enormous disruption in the balance sheets of these banks.
Stock market collapses of the companies that people used to invest in because they provided a steady cash flow to their bottom line. I think this is going to make a bad problem much worse. Yes, we'll find out how bad in April.
Executive order No. 4: Extends the existing pause on student loans until September 30th. Here is the quote, "These emergency measures will help to make sure that no American is put in the place of having to decide to pay their student loan payments or put food on the table in the short term and will help to provide some near-term relief.”
That is from the new director of the White House National Economic Council. So, it's a lovely plan. What do you propose to tell the millions of idiots who paid their loans off? That's me. I paid mine off. Am I going to get my money back?
What do you tell the millions of people who are current on their loans? Do you tell them to stop paying? How do you explain the fact that taxpayers like me who paid off their loans are now going to pay off loans through subsidies?
To the banks for the millions of our history majors or poetry majors who can't get a job and refuse to make payments because they never got jobs? Is that fair? They owe 100,000 dollars on average. They're never going to pay it back. But you and I will. Do you like that? Does that seem fair to you? It sure doesn't to me.
Executive order No. 5: Signed by Joe Biden. Here is a good one that can be a little bit confusing, so I'll work through it. I'm not sure if this was the one, he didn't understand what he was signing.
It's an executive order that allows the United States to rejoin the Paris Climate agreement within 30 days. Rejoining the Paris Climate Accords was a campaign promise and represented a stark rebuke of Trump's America First approach.
rump withdrew from this agreement. Obama put it in place without congressional approval by executive order. The Paris agreement committed the United States to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It was a bad deal for America. Bad for American taxpayers, bad for American energy companies, and every single American who depends on affordable, reliable energy.
Here are a couple of reasons why Trump was right to get out and why I believe Biden is wrong getting back in. The energy regulations agreed to in Paris by Obama's administration would have destroyed hundreds of thousands of jobs.
Harmed American manufacturing, and the estimates are as much as $2.5 trillion in gross domestic product would have been eliminated by 2025. When Trump withdrew us from the agreement, it took the lid off the economy, which exploded with massive growth.
The agreement that we are now going back into requires countries to update their commitments every five years to make them more ambitious. Had we stayed in, there is no way the economy would have grown. No way.
The big "IF" that I have always had a problem with the agreement is what do we do if the other countries lie when they put out their numbers about carbon emissions? I'm referring primarily to China.
On a secondary basis to India, they are known never to meet their pledges. Even if they get close to their pledges, they lie about the numbers. Now, during the time that Trump got us out of the agreement pollution exploded out of China and India.
Our carbon emissions dropped. Yes, you heard me correctly. Our carbon emissions dropped, while China and India increased. Why? Because they cheat. We, in spite of our economy growing like crazy, dropped our emissions.
China has very serious air quality issues. My friends that go there tell me on some days you can't breathe in the major cities, literally. Same in India. So, our economy grew, and we dropped our emissions. Our air quality got better, and we weren't in the deal.
It would require billions and billions to go into these slush funds to send around the world to other countries to cut their emissions. Energy is a 6 trillion dollar market in the United States. We need to keep it affordable to keep our economy growing.
So, our economy boomed, our pollution went down. China and India's pollution went up. Guess what? We're back in the deal. There's nothing you and I can do about it at this point.
Executive order No. 6: I have a problem with this one. This executive order is intended to deal with embedded equity of federal policymaking and rooting out systemic racism and other barriers to an opportunity from federal programs and institutions.
In other words, America is a racist country. Period. The same executive order disbanded the Trump administration's 1776 Commission, which this week released a report that Biden's historians say distorted the role of slavery in the United States.
The 1776 Report calls for a return to the unifying ideas stated in the Declaration of Independence. You know, the document that quotes the greatest Americans that black, white men and women should be free and equal, and have universal human rights, and protections under the Constitution as amended with the Bill of Rights.
That's all racist. So, instead of the commission that Trump founded in the 1776 Commission that talks about how great America is. Biden wants to rely on The New York Times 1619 Project, which reframes America's history by focusing on slavery.
The contributions of black slaves to the building of America and wants to root out the systemic racism that has permeated every cell in American society. The New York Times proved what a racist country America is, and according to Trump, the left has worked, distorted, and defiled the American story with deceptions, falsehoods, and lies.
There's no better example than The New York Times discredited 1619 Project that rewrites American history to teach our children, "We were founded on the principle of oppression, not freedom." Well said, President Trump. Bad news for President Biden. He should have left Trump's legacy in place. I'm really disappointed.
Executive order No. 7: Here's another winner This executive order reverses an earlier order that excluded undocumented immigrants from the census. This order now requires non-citizens to be included in the census and the apportionment of congressional representatives and funding.
Get this, listen carefully. The American Congress was created to provide Americans equal and proportional representation in the Congress. It's called ‘The People's House’ it will now include a census of people who are not American.
But rather often, felons who have entered America illegally and broke several federal laws. They are counted along with Americans. Does that sound right to you? It doesn't sound right to me. Does it bother you as much as it bothers me?
That funding and representation are going to be based on a census of people who are criminally here? Who has violated the sanctity of our borders? They count the same as you and me. I don't like it.
Executive order No. 8: This executive action repeals two proclamations that were informally known as the Muslim ban. You may remember that Trump banned immigration from a number of countries, not because their populations were largely Muslim.
But because there was no way to verify who those people were. These countries had virtually no functioning governance. In other words, what normally happens when somebody comes here is that application is screen based on where they come from, what the locality says about their previous behavior, i.e., are they prisoners, drug addicts, terrorists, or are they good educated people who have never been in trouble with the law?
You're supposed to check on them. But at the time, the "Muslim Ban," I'm putting quotes around that word, was instituted in a number of countries that had no way to verify who their people were. For all intents and purposes, it is not functioning as countries, i.e., Lebanon, Syria, and Libya.
In addition to allowing everyone to come in with visa processing, regardless of where they're from, who they are, or their background Biden also asked for ways to be developed to address the harm caused by the people who were prevented from coming to the United States because of the previous ban.
I had a lot of problems with this insane order. First, this was not and never was a Muslim ban. It was a ban on countries with virtually no functioning governments that precluded our government, the United States, from ascertaining who was coming here and whether they were a good or bad guy.
So, if the home country of those immigrants was not functioning sufficient to provide a background verification, they should be banned. Now and forever. If we just let everyone in, why even have a border? Let's make one big world government with one big country. Oh, wait a minute.
That is the goal of many on the left, and Biden just facilitated that goal in a big way. On top of opening the door to everybody, Biden wants to make up for the people who were not allowed to come here for that period of time because we shouldn't have kept them out.
Why in the world do we owe these non-citizens anything when we have millions on our streets that are homeless. Many of whom are veterans. We don't feed those veterans, clothe, or shelter those veterans.
But if you come here legally from a country that can't even verify who you are. You will get food, shelter, medical, transportation, and an education. Sounds crazy, I hate it. That's just my opinion.
Executive No. 9: This executive order revokes Trump's, "Harsh and extreme immigration enforcement policy." It directs all appropriate agencies to set immigration policies more in line with the Biden administration's values and priorities.
So, I guess this means let detained immigrants out of the cages run by ICE. You remember all those pictures of the people in cages at the border. The ones that the media said were built and run by the Trump administration. They were clean, but they were cages.
The horrific pictures were all blamed on Trump. But as they say in Texas, we come to find out all those pictures were taken when Obama was president with Biden as vice president. They were running the detention centers, and they were the ones that built the cages.
I'll bet you didn't know that. If you get your news from mainstream media, I guarantee you don't know it. Unless you're going to alternative sites like American Truth Project, you will not know who built those cages. They were not built by Trump.
Executive Order No. 10: I hate this one. This executive order has canceled the construction of the border wall on the southern border. Part of the executive order will take the money that Trump worked so hard to put together.
That executive order will have an imidate termination of the emergency declaration and will send the money somewhere else, according to The New York Times. It's already happened, and they're already laying off construction workers.
Do you remember in the beginning when Trump proposed it, there was an outcry. We don't have any money. So, Trump found the money. No new taxes. He just moved stuff around. He took it out of waste.
It didn't cost any new money, and Trump built it like crazy. Bid it out like crazy and built it like crazy. Then the left said, “Even if you can find the money, walls don't work.” Remember that speech?
The hypocrisy is evident daily. I direct you, if you're curious, look at Washington, D.C. right now. There are walls made out of chain link and barbed wire around every building to separate the people from the legislators because those walls work.
There's still a wall around Nancy Pelosi's estate, Governor Newsom's estate, Joe Biden's house, etc. Walls work, just not on the southern border, or so they say.
There are rumors that votes are being accumulated in the House, and I hate to say these words, to take down the new fence. Because the fence on the border is racist. That is the stupidest, most egregious lie I've ever heard in my 40 years of being around politics, and I find it disgusting.
Because of COVID, trillions have been spent. Nobody complained about billions of dollars going all over the world for one goofy, stupid project after another. All the wall needed was another billion or two. But walls are racist, and they don't work.
Now, I can tell you as someone who's been to Israel many times, and I met with the prime minister when the wall was being set up. It's a Barrier; in some cases, it is chain-link, some cases it is cement, some cases, it's a combination of different materials.
He told me we have to build a separation barrier. That's what they call it. Terrorists are walking across the street carrying a bomb in their backpacks, and we can't patrol all the border. But a wall will do the patrolling for us. Suicide bombings drop 99.9%. You heard that statistic correctly.
On the southern border, in every case where the wall is in place, all administration officials who work in any capacity related to the security of the southern borders, ICE, Border Patrol, etc., all the sheriffs, the governors say the same thing. The wall stops traffic because you can't go under it, you can't go over it, and you can't go through.
It unless the door is open for you. Yet, that wall is racist and xenophobic. Please get active on this issue. Every Democrat comes out against this has a barrier around their homes, their offices, both where they live in D.C. and where they live in their home districts. Walls work, or they wouldn't have them.
The wall has been an issue since Biden has been inaugurated. There is a monster caravan on its way up from Guatemala. Why? Because they know they will get in, know they will get free stuff, and vote Democrat eventually.
This is why they will be let in. Ironically, the Biden administration has already put in place its own travel ban. On which countries? China and South Africa. Remember when Trump put in a restriction on travel from China, he was called a racist, a xenophobe, and a Nazi.
Biden is doing the same thing. There is a new travel ban on Brazil. Maybe it's because President Bolsanaro from Brazil has been an outspoken supporter of President Trump. There is a restriction on travel from the U.K. where pro-Brexit, anti-globalist, Trump supporter Boris Johnson is at the helm.
Has anyone called Biden a racist or a xenophobe since his travel bans went into effect? But the Muslim travel ban was an affront to humanity. Even though it wasn't a Muslim travel ban, boy, if I haven't engaged you enough to get active politically, I don't know what will. We need that wall, and God forbid it comes down.
Executive Order No. 11: You won't even believe this one. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, that's ICE, were told to release all illegal immigrants that are presently arrested as of midnight last week, stop removals, and let them out.
You may not send them back by busses, charter flights, or commercial transportation. All cases are considered likely to be accepted into the United States, and no one may be removed. The end of the email from the White House says, “Release everyone in custody immediately.”
Are you horrified? The email was sent to ICE officers as a response to an executive order from President Biden. That order directed the cessation of most deportations from the United States for the first 100 days of his administration. A new sheriff in town is making up laws as fast as he can and putting America in a very insecure position.
If I were living in a border town, I would be nervous. Not because most immigrants are bad people. That's an outrageous thing to say. Most people everywhere are good people. But it doesn't take a lot, like a tenth of one percent.
We're talking about millions of people, and if that 0.001% comes after your family and there is an assault or worse, you will never forget when you find out that everybody got let out.
Executive Order No. 12: Joe Biden has canceled the permission for the Keystone XL pipeline. That means the tremendous amounts of money that have been spent by private industry, on both sides of the border, not to mention the States, was wasted.
The oil is still being pumped out of the ground, and it is still going to be sent to the United States, but now it will come by rail car and truck. Both of which are stupendously polluting compared to a pipeline and are more prone to leaks and accidents.
They will raise the fuel cost when it finally gets to wherever it's going to be processed into gasoline and heating oil—a horrible decision. The Canadians are furious, including their prime minister who is a liberal, progressive, left-wing Democrat. Trudeau has never been madder.
The governors of the various provinces in Canada are furious too. So, China has already said, “We'll take the oil loaded on ships and buy all of it.” Biden has just helped out China dramatically. They have no environmental regulations.
They are going to burn it and process it any way they want to. If the oil came down the United States pipelines, we have the strictest pollution controls in the world. Instead of going to China where the air is already so black on some days, you can't even go outside.
Eight hundred thirty thousand barrels of crude oil per day is either going onto rail cars, of which there aren't enough, and trucks that there aren't enough, and the balance is going to China. How bad is it economically?
Ten-thousand jobs were lost with the stroke of a pen. Including 2,000 Americans who are already working on it. They are all laid off, and they're in phase four of the development program, which was connecting Alberta, Canada, and Nebraska.
Now it's gone. I'm so bummed this is so bad. Thousands and thousands of jobs, $2.2 billion in payroll are coming out of the worker's pocketbooks.
Here's an interesting question, and I've never thought about this, but well done. Is there a limit to how many orders the President can sign? Sadly, no. Tradition limits it, but until Biden feels bad about it, he will be signing executive orders like a maniac, and in his words, “I don't know what I'm signing”.
Here is a related question, can President Biden just go on and sign as many as he wants, turning the country into a dictatorship? Yes, he can. Unless and until somebody challenges an executive order in court and gets a court to take it for review and possible alteration or cancelation.
But there has to be judicial review. That's why, if you remember how conservatives were happy that Trump was filling judicial vacancies as fast as possible? Those judicial appointments are lifetime appointments.
By getting judges that will follow the Constitution instead of activist judges, we who want a more limited government might very well be protected. Now, what does that mean in terms of this issue?
As the Republicans were rushing through appointments knowing in the future, laws come before those courts. Lower courts through the Supreme Court, those judgeships, and the justices sitting there have become important. So, yeah, we got a problem with executive orders, and it's not going to get better.
Executive Order No. 13: I saved the best for last. Are you ready? Joe Biden has signed an executive order affecting girls' sports and military discrimination based on transgender self-identification. Let me translate that into words that make a little more sense.
I think most of us listening today can agree that when a doctor, a midwife, or a nurse delivers a baby, the first thing they do is make sure the child is stable and okay, count fingers and toes.
Then they say, oh, congratulations, mom and dad, you have a boy, or you have a girl. Not anymore, because that's sexist. Under the Biden administration, you get to pick your sex. It doesn't matter what is or isn't between the legs.
So, let's talk about the girl's sports part. I have a daughter, as many of you do, and my daughter's sport was martial arts. She trained for years. I know many of you are parents and have had daughters, or personally when you were younger, and you trained and competed in sports. That became a major part of your life.
You learn discipline. You learn commitment. You got physically fit. You enjoyed the competition. The playing field had to be level. What does the playing field level mean? It's an expression and what it means is everybody is equal in terms of opportunity. So, if you're a swimmer, you compete in your age bracket.
If you're 10, you shouldn't have to compete against a 14-year-old. They'll kill you. Why? They are faster, stronger, more adept, and more physically developed. Does everybody agree? I hope so. It's true in any sport requiring a great deal of physical effort. You could say chess is a game, and some people call it a sport.
I don't have a problem with boys and girls playing chess against each other. They are not going to arm wrestle when it's over, but I have a problem with my daughter going on the mat against a boy who's stronger, faster, bigger bone density, more muscle, and nine times out of 10 would beat her because he has a different metabolic and physical makeup.
Anyone who doesn't recognize that is just plain lying to you. When you see these videos of boys who used to be Dave, now, as Karen, running against the girls in track meets, don't be surprised if they set every record there is, shotput, javelin throw, high jump, sprints, long-distance running, tennis, golf, etc.
It's not fair if you change the rules to say all I have to do is change my name from Dave to Karen, then I can win all the sports. I should get scholarships. That is Joe Biden's new world. It applies to locker rooms, bathrooms, changing areas, and all-sports competition.
I'm disgusted, and I'm horrified. I hope you are, too. I would not want some guy who says his name is now Barbara or Karen in the locker room and the shower with my daughter. I think that's a reasonable request.
Now, what about the military? The military is now going to allow transgender people to fight. Lieutenant General Tom Spoehr, who is the director of the Center for National Defense at the Heritage Foundation, warned that this new policy would, "Contribute to a reduced level of military readiness in our armed forces, which are already hard-pressed to defend American interests around the globe."
Why? Well, it's simple. Who's willing to take a chance and place a gun in the hands of a person who might consider wanting to commit suicide. You might say, what am I talking about?
Transgender group Human Rights Campaign says, 29.9% of females identifying as trans have tried to commit suicide, 41.8% of non-binary youth have tried to commit suicide, and over 50% of all males identifying as trans have tried to commit suicide.
That's insane. It's 900% percent more likely to happen to a trans person than someone who identifies as their physical sexuality. So, military service is inherently stressful, and the suicide rate already exceeds the general population. It seems to me it's crazy to increase that by another 900%. Who's going to administer this?
Joe Biden has tapped Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine. Rachel Levine is a biological male originally named Richard Levine. This person is now the Assistant Secretary of Health at the Department of Health and Human Services.
Levine has a questionable record on COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, but his gender identity is now going to be a serious problem for women's sports, gender identification, and the military. I suggest you look up Rachel Levine online. You will see the person I'm talking about, and I have nothing against someone self-identifying as whatever. Just don't impose your deviation from science on my life, my children's lives, as well your children's lives. Doesn't that make sense? It sure does to me.
I have another question. A viewer writes in with: Do I think that Biden will remove the IRGC from the terror list? The IRGC is the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps, and it is without question the leading terror group on planet Earth. They are based in Tehran.
They are the funders of terror around the world. If there's a group out there in any country that wants to kill Americans, kill Jews, kill Westerners, kill anyone that does not support the Islamification of the world under the caliphate, according to Shiite Islam because they don't like their competitor, Sunni Islam, they're probably sending that group money.
So, the IRGC supports terror groups such as Hezbollah, the Houthi rebels such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and so on worldwide. They are aligned with the moderate Muslim Brotherhood who, as you may know, has the goal of raising the flag of the caliphate over the White House, over the capital, abolishing all constitutional projections, all religions, and the only religion that will survive is Islam. Sounds ugly, doesn't it.
If Biden does that, I hope the Republicans in the House and the Senate move for immediate impeachment. So, I want to say thank you for joining us today on ATP radio. I've enjoyed it. I hope you learned something, and I hope you will tune in next week at the same time.
