On his first day in office, Joe Biden has already signed a whole bunch of executive orders. He has started with imposing a federal mask mandate (for government employees), a commitment to “racial equity,” and rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement.
In addition to the “100 Days Masking Challenge” for the federal government, Biden signed an order making it the official policy of the United States government to “advance racial equity.” This will reportedly abolish Trump’s “1776 Commission” for patriotic education, which his new domestic policy adviser Susan Rice called “harmful,” and have all government agencies review their programs and activities to ensure federal funds are “equitably distributed in communities of color.”
According to numerous reports, the Biden administration will also include an order to count non-citizens in the U.S. Census again – something Trump tried to stop, as well as strengthening “workplace discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”
Trump also withdrew the U.S. from the climate pact on his first day in office in 2017. Biden’s executive order would see the U.S. rejoin within 30 days, with former secretary of state John Kerry now acting as “climate czar” in charge of its implementation. The Biden White House is also re-establishing the Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense, which was part of the National Security Council under the Obama administration, and rejoining the World Health Organization.
Another order would have the federal government reverse or re-do more than 100 Trump directives as “harmful” to the environment, killing the Keystone XL pipeline and reversing the permits for development inside several federal preserves such as Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante. The government was also directed to “consider revising vehicle fuel economic and emissions standards” to where they were under Obama. –RT
So far, it feels like Obama’s administration is back in office. Enjoy the show, folks. This was all by design and all preplanned.
In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way. –Franklin D. Roosevelt
