Trump Signs Three Executive Orders To "Stop Crime", "Crush Drug Cartels", Stop Cop-Killers

Tyler Durden's picture

At the same time that President Trump swore in Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, he signed three executive actions on crime and public safety, including one that targets drug cartels.

"I'm signing three executive actions today designed to restore safety in America,” Trump said in the Oval Office after swearing in Jeff Sessions as attorney general.  

"These dangerous times require a determined attorney general," Trump said at an Oval Office ceremony for Sessions, who said rising crime is a "dangerous, permanent trend" in the United States and also promised to "end this lawlessness" of illegal immigration.

It's unclear what any of the actions would do precisely, and the White House did not immediately provide copies of what Trump had signed.    Trump said he is directing the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security “to undertake all necessary and lawful actions to break the back of the criminal cartels that have spread across our nation and destroying the blood of our youth.”

Another action, Trump said, establishes a Justice Department task force aimed at reducing violent crime and orders the agency to develop a plan to stop crimes against law enforcement officers, or as Reuters put it, an executive order directing the DOJ to create a plan to "stop crime."

Crushing crime with the stroke of a pen.

As Bloomberg adds, President Trump signs three directives today, including one that will direct DHS and DOJ to “break the back of criminal cartels.” Trump also signs DOJ directive aimed at stopping violent crime, and another DOJ directive to implement a plan to stop crime and violence against police.

With "racist" Sessions in charge of Justice and "racist" Trump calling for an end to violence against the police, we can only imagine what fiction BlackLivesMatters protesters will start to peddle as racial tensions are set to escalate once again.

Hopefully by this time next year Hillary, Huma, Podesta, Wasserman and their gang will be in jail.


Comey already did all the leg work listing all their federal crimes; now just indict and convict.

The list of their ethical violations would take a two volume tome.

This is awful! The police state is officially here! First he went after Muslims, and now he’s going after undocumented Hispanics and African Americans who are besieged by crime! Many of these destitute minorities are forced into this way of life by poverty and white privilege, but Trump is just going after them like they’re the perpetrators of this system! When will Trump’s reign of terror be brought to an end??

He legalized drugs???  No?  Oh, then he didn't do anything to stop the cartels.

Waiting with bated breath to hear how the MSM will spin "Stop Crime", "Crush Drug Cartels" and "Stop Cop Killers" to the negative.  If it's Trump saying it, they'll find a way.

AMERICA and TRUMP should emphasize civil duties: Citizen arrests followed by lynching?

Like this video shows how it's done in Britain:

They will attack "the way" he is doing it. Of course they will provide no examples of what is wrong in particular. President for under three weeks and already has made Obama look like a Lazy puppet (he was). Awesome.

Yes, decades of history around the world has proven over and over again that will backfire badly. However, anyone who engages in deeper analysis of the so-called "War on Drugs" will discover that it was fantastically successful at doing what it was really intended to do, which was enable the biggest and best organized criminal gangs, namely bankster dominated governments, to flourish.

The Science behind the DEA's Long War on Marijuana

By Laura Banks, May 14, 2016.

Marijuana was placed in Schedule I in 1971 provisionally, until the science could be assessed. But Pres. Richard Nixon saw pot prohibition as a way to destroy the antiwar left, according to clandestine recordings made by Nixon in the White House as well as statements from his staff to the press. Nixon convened The National Commission on Marihuana and Drug Abuse (what became known as the Shafer Commission) to engineer scientific support for cannabis’s Schedule I placement. “I want a goddamn strong statement on marijuana,” Nixon said in tapes from 1971. “Can I get that out of this sonofabitching, uh, domestic council? … I mean one on marijuana that just tears the ass out of them.”

The Shafer Commission found in 1972 that cannabis was as safe as alcohol, and recommended ending prohibition in favor of a public health approach. But by then the Federal Bureau of Narcotics had been removed from the Treasury Department and merged into the U.S. Department of Justice—where Nixon’s ally, Attorney General John Mitchell, placed cannabis in Schedule I in 1972; that same year he resigned to head Nixon’s re-election committee. (He later stood trial in 1974 over the Watergate scandal and served 19 months of a prison sentence for conspiracy, perjury and obstruction of justice.] You want to know what this was really all about?” Nixon aid John Ehrlichman told journalist Dan Baum in 1994, according to an article published in Harper’s Magazine in 2016. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

Just think....if only Reagan could have been successfully offed....Bush Sr. would have been president even sooner, seeing as how he was the VP at the time of Reagan's assassination and all.

Give that bullet another inch and Bush could have saved himself a bothersome, expensive run for Pres.

Thanks ZHers for the comments above about the range of criminal cartels we would really like to see brought to heel!!!

Having said that, if one should send some order down to, for example, the DEA, won't their natural inclination be to do more of exactly the same things that aren't working? Big beaurocracies don't favor innovation because it is risky.

Any reasonably likely to work approach to powerful drug cartels would probably be some kind of multi-pronged approach addressing supply and demand and having some kind of coordination with foreign police forces. And the part addressing supply would be taking on these big, dangerous organizations... Do we really want our street cops worried about guerrilla warfare? I think they have a stressful enough job as it is.

So we would probably be talking about fully militarizing the DEA... Truth be told... With a well thought out mandate and good leadership, I would not be opposed to such a thing, but either a well thought out mandate or good leadership is no trivial task much less both.

Canary Paint's picture

Feel a bit strange replying to myself... But... I basically said "Yes!" to a ton of upvoted comments about how we need to go after pedophiles, bankers, pharmaceuticals, etc... And then I tried to speculate about what an effective anti-cartel legislation could look like. I got tons of down votes. I am not butthurt because that is not my tendency, but your comments about what an effective anti-cartel intitiative could like would be welcome.

Was I too militaristic for you?

Maybe he really is going after the banks and drug companies.  I mean, "criminal cartel" could mean a wide range of this.
