On this momentous day, marking 100-days of the fraudulent president, I thought it fitting to mark the occasion by reminding everyone of freedom grabbing runaway government promoted by President Biden. As CNN so clearly stated, “To date, 10 of President Biden’s actions on immigration have been reversals of President Trump’s policies.” Begging the question, do you feel safer in your home now, or this time four years ago? I know my answer, and I am looking forward to your thoughts.
To date, President Biden has made 50-end runs around the US Constitutional process through executive orders. For the record, you could take President Trump (38) or Obama (34), add them with President Bush II (13), and still not max out President Biden’s lead. I have written about executive orders and why I detest this singular action made in a free Republic (if we can keep it) by any leading elected official, Mayor, Governor, or President. The US Constitution does not need more beatings coming from leading executives, but less. Much, much, less executive actions, executive orders, and singular people acting “for the good of all” without Congressional representation. Why use CNN; because as the biggest cheerleaders for the fraudulent president, they have the clearest cheering squad.
Examining closer the 50-executive orders issued by President Biden, we find the most egregious of these orders, raising the minimum wage of Federal Contract Workers from $10.95 to $15.00 by 2022 and eliminating the tipped minimum wage by 2024. I am thoroughly unfamiliar with any federally contracted jobs that fall under the tipped minimum wage. Thus, I can only presume the president is now arbitrarily setting the minimum wage for the country without congressional approval—leaving serious questions behind about the legality of this executive order. Where is Congress in exerting its power and rights to set minimum wage?
A minimum wage is a serious issue; any time the wage goes up, jobs are lost. A competent first-year economics major can trace that cause and effect line easily! There are direct causal relationships between high school kids needing employment and not finding it due to the minimum wage laws. This group of uneducated workers extends to many low-income families, minorities, and many others trying to find work as laborers and cannot find jobs. Yet, as a political stunt, the president signs an executive order, betrays the US Constitution, upsets the separate but equal branches of government balance, and somehow this is a “nothing burger.” I beg to differ, vociferously!
Another interesting aspect of the president’s first 100-days is immigration. The current president’s Trump Derangement Syndrome has him reversing 10 of President Trumps Executive Orders and writing two additional immigration-related orders. The plasticization of modular language reveals the tyranny of ruling by executive order! The terms “fair,” “equitable,” “just,” “proper,” etc., all point to the president’s desire to see America devalued by illegal immigrants. Look at the rhetoric used by the president to “explain” why he has reversed, revoked, and wrecked the legal immigration process, and you will find that through Congressional inaction. With Congresses’ refusal to exert its rights, the president can do anything he wants on immigration, and Congress’s leadership just cheers!
To the US House and US Senate, I must ask, where are you? Did you take a taxpayer-paid vacation and stopped caring that you are a co-equal branch of the government? Do you think the judicial branch will stop the president’s runaway government by executive fiat? Do you believe that the American people stopped caring that the president is giving away America, one illegal alien at a time, and we would not notice? Why are you not scrutinizing the executive branch and exerting your rights, standing up for your voice, and making sure you are playing a role in the governance of America?
I have been insulted, denigrated, derided, and many other things for my stand that every president should have a contentious Congress! I firmly believe that when a president has a contentious Congress, the will of America’s people is better respected, observed, and through the process of working together, real compromise occurs. But, what do we see in the US House of Representatives; we see a Speaker who is also the majority leader and the minority leader abdicating their duties to their caucuses and the US House of Representatives. We see members of the US House race-baiting, employing every card in the deck of identity politics deck and refusing even to acknowledge the other party. But, the US Senate, if anything is worse, and the US Senate’s problems can be traced directly to the executive actions of Speaker Harry Reid (D) during President Obama’s tenure.
America, we learned a lot about the “families” presenting themselves at the US Southern Border for entry into America. We learned about child prostitution, children being “attached” to two strange adults and calling it a “family.” We learned about a lot of schemes to feed the growing human trafficking problem in the United States. Yet, the media continues to call the separation of “families” unfair, and the president has proved he learned nothing but smoke and mirrors. At the same time, these children are raped, abused, disappeared, and destroyed, all through executive order instead of legislated demand! Legitimate families should be kept together, but until documentation can be obtained, separating the families for the safety of the children should be paramount! Sorting through the MS-13 plants is not uncaring; it protects America’s main streets from terrorists! But, these immigration policies, designed by President Trump, are hated by the media; so, these policies have to go. Thus, I ask again, do you feel safer in your home or not?
I was never a President Trump (R) supporter; but, I did, and do, support anyone willing to try new ideas to make America safer. I am not a supporter of holding children indefinitely in nice hotels when veterans are homeless and fully support an America FIRST agenda. But, I also firmly believe that the churches and non-profit groups of America can organize to help in a humane way better than runaway government supported by executive fiat!
America, we need legislation on immigration, NOT executive orders that change as frequently as the president! I have maintained this stance, publicly, since President Reagan signed the first orders providing paths to citizenship for illegals. The illegal immigration policies in America can be directly traced to President Roosevelt and WWII executive orders allowing foreign workers access to America’s jobs in agriculture.
Feel free to look this historical tidbit up, and ask yourself, are you safer in your homes and places of business with executive orders or legislation? Are you feeling more secure in your finances with runaway executive actions or through the “Rule of Law?” Do you prosper more under one “Rule of Law” or under identity politics where every single identity can request special treatment, special laws, and special rights?
If the fraudulent president has proved anything in his first 100-days, he has proved America is in trouble, DEEP Trouble, due to the executive orders, runs around the constitutional process, and the abdication of Congressional rule (legislative branch) at all levels of government. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, this president has proved that bigger government is a millstone dragging this Republic down. Finally, this president has proven you cannot “trust” the government and must watch it like a toddler running with a knife! So, CNN, and all the other corporate media outlets, you cheer the fraudulent president; but don’t you dare try to claim this is a good thing for America!
