Biden Issues Executive Order Canceling the Constitution

A few days ago the mentally challenged Joe Biden wanted to shows that in his weakened mental capacity he could still stand up to the Russians.  Yet, when his Executive Order is read, it is NOT against the Russians, it is actually aimed toward his American enemies.  Per the Executive Order if you speak up—and oppose Biden, he can accuse you of being a Russian agent and take away your rights.

“In contrast, Biden’s new EO is directed mostly at US persons. It criminalizes speech and political activities, based on whimsical and arbitrary definitions. The Biden administration can define “malicious activities,” “democratic processes or institutions,” and the activities that undermine them as it wants. 

The Biden administration is also free to interpret what constitutes “interests of the Russian Government.” Such broad and vague language allows the Biden regime to select US citizens and political organizations arbitrarily, and then deprive them of their property and rights without anything reminiscent of due process. The EO does not even require that anybody commit an actual crime somewhere. False cyber-attribution or fake bounty claims are sufficient. Biden’s remarks to the EO showed no regard to the culpability of any targeted US citizens or other persons.”

So when you oppose a tax hike—that is in support of the Russian government.  Want churches to open—that is in defense of the Russian government.  Believe in oil independence—and you are an agent of Russia.  Yet the Biden family took millions from the Ukrainians, the Russians and the Communist Chinese—and are protected from prosecution—since they run the government.

Executive Order Canceling the Constitution

By Leo Goldstein, American Thinker, 4/20/21   

On April 15, Preident Biden signed an Executive Order on Blocking Property with Respect to Specified Harmful Foreign Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation. Contrary to its title, this EO is not about Russia. It is designed to allow the Biden administration to deprive American citizens and organizations of their rights and property by arbitrarily linking those persons to real, imagined, or vaguely defined activities of the Russian government.

The Biden administration unilaterally makes the determination and requires neither criminal acts nor intent. The punishment is blocking assets and a prohibition on any dealing with the accused person. Spouses and adult children of individuals found guilty by accusation under this EO are punished, too.

The EO was preceded by some distracting maneuvers, both diplomatic (hostile rhetoric toward Russia) and military (sending naval ships toward the Black Sea and recalling them back, as if dealing with Russian threats). Thus, many people assumed that the EO was directed at Russia, and completely missed the fact that it is directed at dissent here, at home. 

Over the past four years, the Democrat Party, Fake News, and Big Tech have been frequently portraying their opponents as Russian trolls or Russian misinformation operators. The Russian collusion narrative, initially invented to overthrow the Trump administration, has been used to smear many conservative movements. Now this effort has been crowned by an Executive Order. 

Biden’s administration has been recently pushing so many other radical changes, such as packing the Supreme Court, eliminating the filibuster, restricting Second Amendment rights, etc., that the real ramifications of this new EO went completely unnoticed. In my opinion, this EO is the most dangerous of them all. It allows the Biden regime to eliminate its opposition, quickly and quietly.

Section 1 of the EO enumerates prohibited activities and defines guilty persons as those “determined” by the Secretary of Treasury and/or Secretary of State in consultation with the Attorney General to be:

(a)(ii) responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged or attempted to engage in, any of the following for or on behalf of, or for the benefit of, directly or indirectly, the Government of the Russian Federation: 

(A)  malicious cyber-enabled activities;

(B)  interference in a United States or other foreign government election;

(C)  actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in the United States or abroad; 

(D)  transnational corruption;

Some of the language in this EO borrows from another: EO-13224 – Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions With Persons Who Commit, Threaten To Commit, or Support Terrorism. George W. Bush signed EO-13224 on September 23, 2001, in response to 9/11.

However, Biden’s EO is as similar to Bush’s EO as an atomic bomb is to a sniper rifle. Bush’s EO targeted financing terrorism. It defined terrorism clearly and narrowly. It minimized legal jeopardy to US persons. It did not strip away the standard for criminal liability requirements of action and intent. It did not target spouses or children of accused individuals. Additionally, Bush made a legally meaningful promise to use it with due regard to culpability and the Bush administration used it with restraint. Even so, Democrats criticized it harshly, opposed it, and fought it in courts.

In contrast, Biden’s new EO is directed mostly at US persons. It criminalizes speech and political activities, based on whimsical and arbitrary definitions. The Biden administration can define “malicious activities,” “democratic processes or institutions,” and the activities that undermine them as it wants. 

The Biden administration is also free to interpret what constitutes “interests of the Russian Government.” Such broad and vague language allows the Biden regime to select US citizens and political organizations arbitrarily, and then deprive them of their property and rights without anything reminiscent of due process. The EO does not even require that anybody commit an actual crime somewhere. False cyber-attribution or fake bounty claims are sufficient. Biden’s remarks to the EO showed no regard to the culpability of any targeted US citizens or other persons.

Leftist pseudo-elites have been eager to ban speech based on allegations that such speech may be beneficial to Russia. Such ideation has been present among Big Tech influencers for a long time. This EO effectively gives Big Tech, banks, and credit card companies a new pretext to deplatform conservatives and anyone else who opposes the Biden regime by claiming that they are now engaged in illegal activity. 

Biden’s EO appears to allow the Democrat party to deny Americans the right to advocate against it in future federal elections. This might be accomplished through a “determination” that Russia is interfering in elections against democratic candidates. Thus, any US citizens who also oppose Democrats could be found to acting for Russia’s benefit, directly or indirectly. 

The list of prohibited activities justifying a Biden administration “determination” to deprive American persons of their property and other rights (referred to here as a “Deprived Person”) states:

       [a] (iii) to be or have been a leader, official, senior executive officer, or member of the board of directors of:
           …   (C)  an entity whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order;

For comparison, Bush’s EO only covered the leaders of terrorist-supporting entities, not multiple officials, executives, or directors.

Unprecedently, Biden’s EO targets children and spouses:

[a] (v)    to be a spouse or adult child of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to subsection (a)(ii) or (iii) of this section;

and countless associations:

[a] (vi)   to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of:

(A)  any activity described in subsection (a)(ii) of this section; or

(B)  any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order

[a] (vii) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, … any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order.

Notice the infinite reach these subsections afford. Those connected to a “Deprived Person” can receive the same designation, and so on. There is no limit to the number of iterations. 

“Deprived Persons” essentially become untouchables, as dealing with them in any way is expressly prohibited without additional determinations:

Sec. 2.  The prohibitions in section 1 of this order include:

(a)  the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and

(b)  the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

Giving legal representation, hosting the website, selling food, and giving medical care to a “Deprived Person” is automatically prohibited. Section 4 prohibits transactions that “cause a violation” of this EO, even absent intent or knowledge. This serves as a hint to pre-emptively cut ties with anyone the Biden regime targets.

Section 9 exempts UN bodies and “related organizations” (NGOs) from any responsibility for interfering in US elections and other activities under this order.

The Russian Federation is mixed into the EO only for distraction and as a primer, triggering expanding layers of culpability. 

I do not expect any putative human rights organizations or large media outlets to hold the Biden regime accountable for how it applies this EO or to defend its victims. So far, these outlets have either ignored it or defended it.

    Dear Stephen

    This is TREASON and High Crimes Abuse of Power in its very core and Grounds to remove Mr Biden and any supporting constituent from office. It is time to request our Military and Militia to arrest and detain ALL parties associated to this Henious Action in a military confinement as an enemy of the United States.

  3. John P Hurabiell, Sr. says

    Biden is an asshole engaged in communist political masturbation. Corrupt is far too nice a word for him. Putin pales in comparison.

  4. Sounds like we now have a dictatorship

  5. Disgusted in California says

    I’d rather align with Russia than China!!!!!!

  6. Howell Jenkins says

    This is scary as (edited). Even though not a law it gives the government the power to take anyone’s property at any time for any reason.

  7. I don’t believe that Executive Orders are legally enforceable unless the legislature acts to make the EO’s into laws.

  8. Cancel the Constitution? Who the hell does he think he is a dictator? If he seriously tries that he just broke his oath of office. That amounts to treason and impeachment. Treason is also punishable.

  9. PokeTheTruth says

    Section 1 of the EO prohibits any person affiliated with the Russian government to engage in commerce with respect to existing property held in the U.S. Note the fact the order did not just specify “real property”, which refers to tangible, capital assets such as: land, buildings, estates, businesses, rental property, etc. It also includes personal property as well e.g., bank and investment accounts, cash money, automobiles, marine vessels, etc.

    Effectively the EO denies a class of people, that being persons who reject the lies told by Washington, DC about Russia the right to enjoy their U.S. owned property, which includes selling or transferring it. That is a form of punishment called a “Bill of Attainder” that prohibits the Congress and the States from enacting such legislative acts as stated in the U.S. Constitution.

    Does a Bill of Attainder apply to this presidential EO too? Well the purpose of the prohibition was to insure the “Separation of Powers” that is fundamental to our Republican form of government. This means the U.S. Congress cannot perform a judicial function through a legislative act, nor should the President be able to punish a class of people for which that power is exclusively granted to the judicial branch, either. Refer to the U.S. Supreme Court case “United States v. Brown” as an example:

    See: https://www.law.cornell.edu/supremecourt/text/381/437

    Section 1, subsection (a) (ii) states any person determined,, “to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged or attempted to engage in, any of the following for or on behalf of, or for the benefit of, directly or indirectly, the Government of the Russian Federation:”

    Sub-sub paragraph (C), states, “actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in the United States or abroad;”

    This is very, very broad but it could be used to suppress any blogs that support Russia’s position with respect to world affairs. I would not be surprised if ordinary American citizens are swept up with this EO, given the wickedness of US foreign polices concerning the Russian Federation.

  10. Heywood Jablomi says

    President Xiden. Two words define this ‘simp’ Clue and less.

  11. “Actions or policies that undermine democratic processes” That one sentence alone on the Biden Executive Order would be enough for any elite to go after anybody, anything at anytime. The Supreme Court I believe said EO must either specifically follow a Constitutional clause or be approved by Congress. This sounds like neither, but it would take a law suit to prove so. Pacific Legal Foundation, where are you!?

  12. Robert Wilson says

    This is unbelievable! Not to mention unconstitutional!

  13. Sallie Ann says

    Uncle Joe Stalin is alive and well and ghosting Basemen Joe now……

  14. Sallie Ann says

    Basement Joe……

  15. Terasa Reisman says

    Don’t worry Biden isn’t the real president it’s all a show your watching to wake up these brainwashed sheep. The cabal is being crushed from the bottom up and all these evil minions.

  16. Biden’s puppet masters can have him scrawl anything they want on his counterfeit letterhead but it doesn’t mean squat. ‘Official’ acts, laws or declarations proceeding from a criminal enterprise have the same legal substance as weak flatulence on a windy day. Likewise, anything in contraindication to the Constitution is automatically null and void. Feel free to ignore as you wish.
