Following in his old boss’s footsteps, Barack Hussein Obama who had a pen and a phone and was not afraid to use them, the current Occupier of the Oval Office, sleepy, creepy Joe Biden, is busy putting his John Hancock on one sheet of paper after another in executive order folios.
Initial reports were that there were to be seventeen such signings in the first day, and were to include halting work on the Keystone XL Pipeline, restoring federal funding to Planned Parenthood, rescinding the withdrawal from the World Health Organization, signing back on to the Paris Climate Accord, and much more than President Donald Trump managed to accomplish in his four short years as president.
And then there were the orders signed to reverse President Trump’s efforts to alleviate the COVID-19 pandemic which destroyed most of the economic gains achieved under his administration. Masks will now be required in all Federal buildings, even if they are not proven to work and have been blamed for a number of maladies including a rise in bacterial pneumonia. Masks will also now be required on all public transportation conveyances. The Defense Production Act will be used to compel companies to make all sorts of supplies including masks. There will be an increase in efforts to vaccinate as many people as possible whether they want to be or not.
Essentially, the COVID response will be ramped up from what the Trump team did rather successfully, and all credit will go to the Biden administration whether they do anything new and innovative or not.
