A Preview Of Trump's Seven Imminent Executive Orders

Tyler Durden's picture

Having already signed a (mostly symbolic) executive order on Obamacare on Friday night, urging US agencies to "waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation" of provisions deemed to impose fiscal burdens on states, companies or individuals, Trump is preparing to unload a volley of many more executive orders. Courtesy of Axios, which quotes "one of the best-wired Republican lobbyists in town", here is a preview of the initial round of Trump executive actions, some of which may hit as soon as Sunday afternoon:

  • Look for a possible hiring freeze at executive branch
  • 5-year lobbying ban on transition and administration officials
  • Mexico City policy, which prevents foreign NGOs from getting U.S. family planning money if they provide abortions with non-U.S. funds. (It's already illegal to use U.S dollars on abortions.)
  • Task the Defense Secretary and joint chiefs to come up with plan to eviscerate ISIS
  • Report on readiness, and something cyber security related
  • Border/immigration: Something on sanctuary cities, expand E-Verify, an extreme vetting proposal
  • Trade: Withdraw from TPP and a thorough review of NAFTA

Axios also notes that "the Mexico City executive order could come as soon as today."

Furthermore, watch for dozens of EPA executive orders coming down the pike. "Says a Trump source: "EPA has clean water-related and some 30,000 foot regulatory ones lined up [immediately]...We have dozens for the EPA...Starting Monday through the month of February. We have to roll them out gradually."

As we laid out before, here is a brief summary of what Trump can (and can not do) on day one. Exhibit 3 lists the President’s “Contract with Voters”, which includes several items that can be accomplished through executive action but involves significant legislative activity as well.

Next a table breaking down the upcoming Budget process:

The “budget reconciliation” process allows the majority party to instruct various committees to pass legislation to achieve certain fiscal targets, for example to reduce the deficit by a certain amount over the next ten years. These instructions, along with spending and revenue targets, are included in the annual budget resolution that Congress is supposed to pass by April of each year. Legislation passed pursuant to these instructions enjoys procedural protections in the House and Senate; most importantly, it is immune to filibuster in the Senate and thus needs only 51 votes to pass. The budget resolution can provide instructions to pass as many as three reconciliation bills, one dealing with tax or revenue changes, one dealing with spending changes, and one dealing with the debt limit. This year, tax reform is likely to be addressed through reconciliation, as are changes to the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”). It is possible that congressional leaders might also consider using this process to address infrastructure funding, certain entitlement program reforms, or the debt limit increase that appear to be necessary by Q3.

A Multi-Step Budget Process :

Finally, here again are the main differences between the House tax plan and that of the president.

So who is going to tell Donald that ISIS is the CIA/Israel? Do they lie to him? Is he in on it? or is he going to clean up Dodge City?

I'm stunned at these executive orders because they actually make SENSE and something you would except a country to enforce.  FINALLY!!!!!  Go Trump!!

Myth #8 – God gave the land to the Jews, so the Arabs are the occupiers.

No amount of discussion of the facts on the ground will ever convince many Jews and Christians that Israel could ever do wrong, because they view its actions as having the hand of God behind it, and that its policies are in fact the will of God. They believe that God gave the land of Palestine, including the West Bank and Gaza Strip, to the Jewish people, and therefore Israel has a “right” to take it by force from the Palestinians, who, in this view, are the wrongful occupiers of the land.

But one may simply turn to the pages of their own holy books to demonstrate the fallaciousness of this or similar beliefs. Christian Zionists are fond of quoting passages from the Bible such as the following to support their Zionist beliefs:

“And Yahweh said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: ‘Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are – northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants could also be numbered. Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.” (Genesis 13:14-17)

“Then Yahweh appeared to him and said: ‘Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you. Dwell in the land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father.” (Genesis 26: 1-3)

“And behold, Yahweh stood above it and said: ‘I am Yahweh, God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants.” (Genesis 28:13)

Yet Christian Zionists conveniently disregard other passages providing further context for understanding this covenant, such as the following:

“You shall therefore keep all My statutes and all My judgments, and perform them, that the land where I am bringing you to dwell may not vomit you out.” (Leviticus 20:22)

“But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments … but break My covenant … I will bring the land to desolation, and your enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it. I will scatter you among the nations and draw out a sword after you; your land shall be desolate and your cities waste … You shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.” (Leviticus 26: 14, 15, 32-33, 28)

“Therefore Yahweh was very angry with Israel, and removed them from His sight; there was none left but the tribe of Judah alone…. So Israel was carried away from their own land to Assyria, as it is to this day.” (2 Kings 17:18, 23)

“And I said, after [Israel] had done all these things, ‘Return to Me.’ But she did not return. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it. Then I saw that for all the causes for which backsliding Israel had committed adultery, I had put her away and given her a certificate of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah did not fear, but went and played the harlot also.” (Jeremiah 3: 7-8)

Yes, in the Bible, Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, told the Hebrews that the land could be theirs – if they would obey his commandments. Yet, as the Bible tells the story, the Hebrews were rebellious against Yahweh in all their generations.

What Jewish and Christian Zionists omit from their Biblical arguments in favor of continued Israel occupation is that Yahweh also told the Hebrews, including the tribe of Judah (from whom the “Jews” are descended), that he would remove them from the land if they broke the covenant by rebelling against his commandments, which is precisely what occurs in the Bible.

Thus, the theological argument for Zionism is not only bunk from a secular point of view, but is also a wholesale fabrication from a scriptural perspective, representing a continued rebelliousness against Yahweh and his Torah, and the teachings of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus the Christ) in the New Testament.

"God gave the land of Palestine,"

No, God gave the land of Canaan...

The Jews and the Romans went to war. The Romans changed the name of Judea to Palestina, a Latinized version of Philistine. The Philistines were the enemies of the children of Israel. They lived in the Gaza Strip but had gone extinct by the time the Romans came into the picture. The inhabitants of Gaza who call themselves Palestinians are Arabs, not Philistines.

BTW, Yassar Arafat was an Egyptian Arab, born in Cairo.

Read Hosea.

By 20+, you must mean 100+. This train's been-a-rolling a long time. Betcha, though, that nothing much really changes. I will still be a taxpaying, working stiff. I will still be able to easily procure a gun or get my gal an abortion. US policy will still be generally on the warring side and bent over to Israel.

BTW, 90% of Jews are no semites, but Abkhenazis, originating from Eastern Europe. They may be of Jewish religion, but have NOTHING more to do with Israel, than faithful Christians or Muzzies.

Then there is the fact the Khazarian Jews were 8th Century converts from Ukraine.

Yeah, around the same period the white race lost it's identity by converting to sand nigger religion.

Bully, you only quote the old testament.  That is all in the past.  Since you only believe in the OT I won't bother quoting the many scriptures that say God will bring them back from captivity and restore them in the land given to Abraham.  There are some of those in Isaiah as well but I don't have time to look them up.  I'm sure you could find them if you wanted to but you probably want to stick to your narrow and false viewpoint.

Three Jewish tribes lived in Mecca and Medina long before Mohammad started "Islam". Mohammad butchered them all, took their stuff raped the women and made slaves of them. One Jewish tribe he had all the men and boys lined up and beheaded. This is not disputed by Islamic scholars.

So do the Jews get a right of return to Mecca and Medina? Yeah, right. Enough dhimmi BS, ok?

What the Izzy's do is none of my business, screw them but screw all Islamic murderers more. Islam better get it's house in order fast.

Maybe you could explain something to me? If an independent Palestinian state is so freaking important, then why wasn't it established in 1966, when Jordan controlled the West Bank and Egypt controlled Gaza? Why is it only so freaking important after Israel took control of the West Bank and Gaza during the Six Day War?

Look into General Flynn.

He knows exactly who and what Isis is. As of right now, he swings the second biggest and deadliest dick in DC.
Some dipshit Isis fighters are about to kiss the donkey in a big way.

People are gonna get dead and others are gonna be in federal prison soon.
Don ain't gonna let this ride just for leverage. Neither is Flynn. It's very personal to both.

Tulsi Gabbard is someone to watch. She's very impressive.

“4) Task the Defense Secretary with plan to eviscerate ISIS;”

 

Eviscerate is only getting the job less than half done.

Skinned alive, drawn and quartered and then filthy mess should be burned in bacon grease.

But Vlad and the Donald might not have to do very much once Pres Trump finds and eliminates the US funding and arms shipments to the terrorists.

But the real fun will be when they scour the scum off of the Libyan coast and stop the new French and German welfare forces from traveling north.

As for sanctuary cities, triple the enforcement and enforce the law with a hammer if necessary. Let illegal aliens/immigrants find out for themselves that sanctuary cities do NOT exist.

Mr. Universe's picture

I would go for that except for the fact that pretty much the entire West Coast is already infested beyond redemption. They have retaken California and are not going to give it back, in fact they have done it with the blessings of the State and major city governments. I get phone drone calls in Spanish on a regular basis. The state is headed to a boiling point soon and it's not going to be pretty.

techpriest's picture

I think the best thing to be done in this case is to have Jefferson secede from California, and cut off all the water and other resources they are stealing. Then, Cali can descend into the third world status they so desperately want to live in.

Remember, in the third world the celebrities and government are still rich and powerful. The difference is, you aren't.

But seriously why is abortion right up there for right leaning yanks?

ITs a non issue is most western countries - the woman can do what she wants - a pregnancy is a life threatening thing.. you push a mestizo bowling ball out of your ass.

and with it there are less unloved trashy people and in this case mexicans...  its a win.

Trump has only done it to impress the christian zionists and zealots.

i think you dumb yanks are big on it because you are still full of the cheesepope religions invented to control europe a thousand years ago.  Hook , line and sinker.

you need to let go.

swmnguy's picture

In the US abortion rings multiple bells and sounds multiple dog-whistles.  For the religious fanatics, the appeal is obvious.  It's also been given racial and cultural undertones, with the implied undertone that it's blacks and hippie women who get abortions.  Backlash against civil rights, women's rights, religious appeal; it all lines up.  And the medical industry is playing a deft game of it as well, finding common cause with the Right to eliminate a low-cost competitor, Planned Parenthood.

Americans aren't really religious.  We pretend we are for political purposes.  Blacks and Mexicans are a lot more religious in actuality than white Americans.  Look at all the statistics for unwed pregnancy, smoking, drinking, drug use, violent crime, sex crime, child abuse, etc.  Poverty among white people in America is the biggest domestic problem we face, though you'll never hear it from us as we patronize and condescend to lower class white people and their aspirational culture, as opposed to the realities of their lives which are grim compared to what they used to be a couple generations ago.

The abortion debate isn't about abortion.  Rich women in America have always had access to abortions.  And they always will.  This is about inciting those on the second rung of the ladder to stomp the fingers of those on the first rung, below them.

IndyPat's picture

What a load of shit.
You don't have to be religious to be against infanticide.
It's not too much to expect people to fucking assume responsibility for their genitals. Subsidizing infanticide is fucking sick. Don't fucking put that blood on my hands.

bloofer's picture

I absolutely agree. There are certain monstrous things that a culture cannot condone--let alone encourage--without ultimately destroying the culture.

When it seems good and desirable to a people to kill their own children, that people is done. And most likely this self-selection for extinction is a biologically sound choice, based on their own awareness that they are pretty much slime who don't deserve to live.

Pompous jerk.

Go adopt a Palestian child we orphaned.

Go comfort an Iraqui father whose pregnant wife we killed.

Don't you guys hear how asinine you sound with your anti abortion chest beating?

SheHunter's picture

As soon as you get this riled about the third world pregnant women we kill, the third world children we kill, the third world children we maim and orphan.  When I see you all self righteous about THESE deaths - then I will have respect for you and your beliefs on abortion.  Until then you are just another blind, self-righteous hypocrit.

SheHunter's picture

You/ve got plenty of third world citizen blood on your hands.  How much time, effort and energy have you spent denouncing these deaths?  None?  Oh that's right.  Being anti-abortion is much more colorful and emotional than denouncing all the other deaths completed by your country.

"But seriously why is abortion right up there for right leaning yanks?

U a Brit?

There are pieces of answers in the responses to your post, some I'd subscribe more than others.  But there are a few additional differences for you to consider, if you wish:

  • UK pretty much voted to permit abortion, in the U.S. progressive lawyers invented something that upon plain reading didn't exist within our Constitution.  Most normal people who can read can sense that there is something wrong and elitist about that.
  • We have an intentional and/or benignly neglected history and policy of genocide that is in particularly aimed at the "unloved trashy people" you mention.  You get a reddie for that comment.
  • We have grown up aghast at the human experiments of the various socialist regimes (FDR's included) that occurred in the 1920s et seq.  We understand that these are ongoing in Margaret Sanger's (she of Hillary's full esteem) Planned Parenthood.  Check out "The War Against the Weak" if you have the moral courage.

Please do keep misunderestimating Trump and his followers.  It will make things easier.  Without us dumb yanks you'd be speaking German, no matter where in the now defunct Commonwealth you might find yourself.

You need to go fuck yourself.
