In his first week in office, President Biden signed more executive orders than the previous three presidents combined by far, and he hasn’t slowed down, signing three more on Tuesday. As Twitchy has mentioned, this is the same Biden who said you can’t legislate by executive order “unless you’re a dictator.”
However, Biden, after shuffling his notecards around a bit, explained to the press that he’s not legislating … he’s eliminating bad policy set by the previous president.
BIDEN: "There's a lot of talk, with good reason, about the number of executive orders that I have signed. I'm not making new law. I'm eliminating bad policy." pic.twitter.com/TRUm9rhP5Z

I’m just reading these cards, much like I was just signing those papers. I do what I’m told by the earpiece.

The need to refer to notes, when the topic is not that difficult to articulate, is telling.

IDK. I don’t consider reversing the order to withdraw troops from Afghanistan good policy.

Except for the EO that says men get to play on women’s athletic teams and take women’s scholarships. That was new law.

Killing off women's sports is good policy?

In his opinion it is good to eliminate thousands of well-paying jobs and let men compete against women in athletics.

Keystone was bad policy even when Obama State Dept said it would reduce carbon emissions?

He just canceled Trump’s $30 Billion to help farmers. 1st gasoline, now food.
$1400 ain’t gonna help a single American who has to pay for these 2 things by themselves

Like taking money from our hard working farmers to give it to climate change? I guess Solyndra is up and running making solar panels? Oh wait I forgot that didnt come true!

Oh, so thousands of jobs and energy independence is bad policy now.

Protecting babies from abortion is GOOD policy!

Banning critical race theory in government…bad.

Surging troop levels in Iraq, Syria and Afghan is bad policy. Destroying thousands of union jobs and energy independence is bad policy. Destroying women's sports is bad policy. Rejoining a non-binding accord that limits American abilities while increasing China's is bad policy.

The policy being America First, and protecting our borders, national interests, and making America stronger. That's what Biden and his ilk consider "bad policy" as they are globalists who work on behalf of those whose interests further a globalist agenda.

In other words, reverse Pro-American Trump policy?

No balance of power. A dictator ruling while bypassing all other branches of government. President Biden issued 22 executive orders in his first week. This compares to four by President Trump in his first week.

Biden, last year:

Biden shows off as a superior being as he writes EO after EO without any effort towards consensus when actually he’s coming off as an ultimate dictator and lousy president. It couldn’t have been the goal of unity he swore to on the family Bible.

So in 2024 the Republican President will eliminate your bad policies. And so it goes.
I hate Washington.

I've seen nothing passed by congress to him. All his by decree, as if king. #dictatorinchief On another note, I think he's doing this so all is lined up for when Kamala takes the reigns.

His press secretary will circle back tomorrow if there are any outstanding questions.
