President Biden's Inauguration and January 20, 2021 Executive Orders Part 1 of 2
Biden White House Makes YouTube Upload of Inaugural Speech ‘Unlisted’ After Being Flooded With Dislikes - By Richard Moorhead - Jan 21, 2021
The Inaugural Address wasn’t well received.
Joe Biden’s White House staff privatized an upload of his inaugural address from the White House YouTube page, after the video was rationed with a wave of dislikes.
As of late Wednesday night, Biden’s Inaugural Address has more than 17,000 dislikes, and less than 4,000 likes. Sensing that the public wasn’t responding positively, the Biden administration made the video “unlisted” some time after its initial streaming.
In a legally questionable development, the Biden White House staff have also disabled comments on the Inaugural Address. Court rulings previously forced the Trump administration to unblock fanatic liberal reply guys on Twitter, with judges ruling that they had the right to engage with the President on the platform.
The poor reaction may have come in part from the existing YouTube subscriber demographic of the White House channel, which was primarily composed of Trump supporters. Other uploads of Biden’s Inaugural Address on the YouTube channels of mainstream media networks have a more favorable like-to-dislike ratio.
The takedown of the video could ultimately be challenged under a 2018 court ruling establishing presidential social media accounts as public forums, with comments enabled. Biden will have to face criticism- even on his official internet presence- as President.

(Natural News) By way of votes, it would seem that Joe Biden is the most popular president in history. However, his inauguration crowd proves otherwise. You can fake votes and support on paper, but not in person. Here are some comparison pictures of Biden’s inauguration crowd taken at the same time as the photo of Trump’s inauguration crowd in 2017. Even more impressive, is Trump’s crowd today in Florida as he returns home. The support is much larger than the inauguration today.
Kamala Harris has been touted as a history-making Vice President, being the first black woman elected to the position. This alone should draw an enthusiastic crowd, yet, supporters are mostly absent today. https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-01-20-where-is-everyone-joe.html
(Natural News) At noon today the scenes on Capitol Hill were arguably no different to those we saw on January 6th: a desecration of the Republic. This time, by a humiliating scene of an empty National Mall, and a handful of people who stole an election in the dead of night.
Much is made of the phrase “peaceful transition of power,” but this was no peaceful transition.
A stolen election doesn’t equal a peaceful transition.
Another phony impeachment doesn’t equal a peaceful transition.
And 30,000 troops doesn’t equal a peaceful transition.
In reality, this was not an inauguration in the same way that there was never really an election. An election requires that certain rules are followed. They were not. An inauguration requires a valid result. There was none.
And it’s a testament to the political establishment’s loathing of the American public that over the past year they have sought to strike fear into people’s hearts over a pandemic, and now they seek to divide the nation further by referring to one side as “domestic terrorists.”
That’s not how democratically elected administrations come to power in free republics.
That’s how authoritarian regimes seize power and wield it over their naysayers in banana republics.
That’s why The National Pulse will not be referring to Joe Biden’s government as an administration. We will, from here on, refer to it as a regime.
And we suggest you do the same. https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-01-20-not-an-administration-a-regime.html#
Biden has maybe 2,000 attendees at inauguration — and 25,000 military — just like they do in lawless banana republics - By Jim Hoft republished from TheGatewayPundit.com -January 21, 2021
(Natural News) Joe Biden was sworn in today as the 46th President of the United States.
They say he had 81 million votes.
No one turned out to see Biden. A few hundred or maybe a thousand listened to him blather and slur his words.
Biden had ten times as many military men and women protecting his inauguration today like they do in any lawless banana republic.
The elites fear the people they want to lord over. https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-01-21-biden-has-maybe-2000-attendees-at-inauguration.html
President Biden’s first day in Office and he made many Executive Orders:
Biden’s 17 Executive Orders and Other Directives in Detail - By Aishvarya Kavi - Published Jan. 20, 2021Updated Jan. 21, 2021, 12:29 p.m. ET
The moves aim to strengthen protections for young immigrants, end construction of President Donald J. Trump’s border wall, end a travel ban and prioritize racial equity.
WASHINGTON — In 17 executive orders, memorandums and proclamations signed hours after his inauguration, President Biden moved swiftly on Wednesday to dismantle Trump administration policies his aides said have caused the “greatest damage” to the nation.
Despite an inaugural address that called for unity and compromise, Mr. Biden’s first actions as president are sharply aimed at sweeping aside former President Donald J. Trump’s pandemic response, reversing his environmental agenda, tearing down his anti-immigration policies, bolstering the teetering economic recovery and restoring federal efforts to promote diversity.
Here’s a look at what the measures aim to accomplish.
On the Pandemic
Mr. Biden has signed an executive order appointing Jeffrey D. Zients as the official Covid-19 response coordinator who will report to the president, in an effort to “aggressively” gear up the nation’s response to the pandemic. The order also restores the directorate for global health security and biodefense at the National Security Council, a group Mr. Trump had disbanded.
Though it is not a national mask mandate, which would most likely fall to a legal challenge, Mr. Biden is requiring social distancing and the wearing of masks on all federal property and by all federal employees. He is also starting a “100 days masking challenge” urging all Americans to wear masks and state and local officials to implement public measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Mr. Biden is also reinstating ties with the World Health Organization after the Trump administration chose to withdraw the nation’s membership and funding last year. Dr. Anthony S. Fauci will be the head of the U.S. delegation to the organization’s executive board and will jump into the role with a meeting this week.
On Immigration and Visas
With an executive order, Mr. Biden has bolstered the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that protects from deportation immigrants brought to the United States as children, often called Dreamers. Mr. Trump sought for years to end the program, known as DACA. The order also calls on Congress to enact legislation providing permanent status and a path to citizenship for those immigrants.
Another executive order revokes the Trump administration’s plan to exclude noncitizens from the census count, and another overturns a Trump executive order that pushed aggressive efforts to find and deport unauthorized immigrants. Yet another order blocks the deportation of Liberians who have been living in the United States.
In a blow to one of his predecessor’s earliest actions to limit immigration, Mr. Biden has also ended the so-called Muslim ban, which blocked travel to the United States from several predominantly Muslim and African countries. Mr. Biden has directed the State Department to restart visa processing for individuals from the affected countries and to develop ways to address the harm caused to those who were prevented from coming to the United States because of the ban.
Mr. Biden has also halted construction of Mr. Trump’s border wall with Mexico. The order includes an “immediate termination” of the national emergency declaration that allowed the Trump administration to redirect billions of dollars to the wall. It says the administration will begin “a close review” of the legality of the effort to divert federal money to fund the wall.
On Climate Change
Chief among executive orders that begin to tackle the issue of climate change, Mr. Biden has signed a letter to re-enter the United States in the Paris climate accords, which it will officially rejoin 30 days from now. In 2019, Mr. Trump formally notified the United Nations that the United States would withdraw from the coalition of nearly 200 countries working to move away from planet-warming fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas.
In additional executive orders, Mr. Biden began the reversal of a slew of the Trump administration’s environmental policies, including revoking the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline; reversing the rollbacks to vehicle emissions standards; undoing decisions to slash the size of several national monuments; enforcing a temporary moratorium on oil and natural gas leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge; and re-establishing a working group on the social costs of greenhouse gasses.
On Racial and L.G.B.T. Equality
Mr. Biden will end the Trump administration’s 1776 Commission, which released a report on Monday that historians said distorted the role of slavery in the United States, among other history. Mr. Biden also revoked Mr. Trump’s executive order limiting the ability of federal agencies, contractors and other institutions to hold diversity and inclusion training.
The president designated Susan E. Rice, who is the head of his Domestic Policy Council, as the leader of a “robust, interagency” effort requiring all federal agencies to make “rooting out systemic racism” central to their work. His order directs the agencies to review and report on equity in their ranks within 200 days, including a plan on how to remove barriers to opportunities in policies and programs. The order also moves to ensure that Americans of all backgrounds have equal access to federal government resources, benefits and services. It starts a data working group as well as the study of new methods to measure and assess federal equity and diversity efforts.
Another executive order reinforces Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to require that the federal government does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, a policy that reverses action by Mr. Trump’s administration.
On the Economy
Mr. Biden is moving to extend a federal moratorium on evictions and has asked agencies, including the Agriculture, Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development Departments, to prolong a moratorium on foreclosures on federally guaranteed mortgages that was enacted in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The extensions all run through at least the end of March.
The president is also moving to continue a pause on federal student loan interest and principal payments through the end of September, although progressive groups and some congressional Democrats have pushed Mr. Biden to go much further and cancel up to $50,000 in student debt per person.
On Government Accountability
Following in the footsteps of some of his predecessors, Mr. Biden has established ethics rules for those who serve in his administration that aim “to restore and maintain trust in the government.” He has ordered all of his appointees in the executive branch to sign an ethics pledge.
Finally, Mr. Biden issued a freeze on all new regulations put in motion by his predecessor to give his administration time to evaluate which ones it wants to move forward. The memorandum is aimed at preventing so-called midnight regulations, policies pushed through by a lame-duck president unconstrained by electoral considerations. The fast pace often cuts short the opportunity for the public or industry to review the policies.
(Natural News) During his first hours in office, Joe Biden issued a raft of executive orders the Marxists who are really running his administration prepared for him, with most aimed not at even trying to continue President Donald Trump’s legacy of success but rather as sticks in the eyes of his 74-plus million supporters.
Because the objective of the incoming Biden administration isn’t to keep America great or make Americans wealthier and more independent, as Trump tried to do (and largely accomplished): The objective is to tamp America and Americans down, keep us down, and keep us controlled and dependent on the ruling class.
That much is obvious based on the content and the goals of the orders he is signing.
Take a look:
· Federal mask mandate: Because Biden’s party hasn’t clamped down enough on Americans for nearly a year during the COVID-19 pandemic, Biden issued a “100-day mask challenge” that included mandatory mask-wearing inside federal buildings. Remember when we were all asked to give the government a month to ‘bend the curve’ of infections? Yeah, this time it’ll work, though. Whatever.
· Keep the U.S. in the World Health Organization: Remember this ‘stellar’ global health org? It’s chieftain, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus helped China conceal COVID-19 from the world and then downplayed criticism of Beijing after the ChiComs withheld critical information and let the virus spread.
· Rejoin the Paris Climate Accords: Trump pulled America out of this pathetic agreement because our country was going to be responsible for the bulk of cutting ‘emissions’ — not the world’s two biggest carbon dioxide emitters/polluters, China and India. The former president noted that remaining in the agreement would cost the U.S. economy some $450 billion year, cost jobs, and hurt American companies. Biden’s Marxists obviously don’t care what the agreement will do to our economy.
· Kiss energy independence goodbye: Have you been enjoying not spending half a paycheck on gas for the past few years? Well, that’s going to change; you may as well get used to riding a bike or walking, because $4-$5 gas is coming back. Biden is killing the Keystone XL pipeline after a private firm in Canada has invested $8 billion in the project. At the same time, he is directing federal agencies to reverse scores of orders Trump signed regarding the environment that will further impede energy production and blow up our home energy bills as well.
· Goodbye to schools teaching correct American history: Biden signed an order canceling Trump’s 1776 Commission, which was formulated in response to the lying garbage touted in the bogus “1619 Project,” which essentially teaches school kids America is racist through and through, always has been, always will be, and so we must ensure we give persons of color extra benefits and goodies to ‘make up’ for ‘all white people have done to harm them.’ Trump’s project taught the correct history of America — our founding as the greatest human experiment in self-governance ever tried and how our Constitution was written in a way that gave our forebears legislative and government tools to get rid of institutions like slavery.
· Open borders are back: Biden will say his stoppage of Trump’s border wall and his reversal of Trump’s border enforcement policies is ‘just’ and ‘fair’ and ‘equitable for all’ — but as all Democratic Marxists do, they are concerned only with “EBA,’ or “everybody but Americans.” Border security and border walls do more than keep people out who want to enter illegally, they also curb the flow of drugs that are killing our citizens. Biden’s handlers don’t care about your safety, though — or your job; letting cheaper labor in is great for their corporate donors.
· More sanctuary for sanctuary cities: Speaking of illegal immigration, Biden has also reversed Trump’s border enforcement strategy, which was aimed, in part, at enforcing federal immigration laws in so-called “sanctuary cities” that unlawfully provide protection for aliens who aren’t supposed to be in our country.
rump tweeted. He was gruff. He was disagreeable at times. But he cared deeply about our country and about all Americans doing well in their own country.
Biden has made it clear he doesn’t.

Biden signs 10 executive orders to tackle Covid-19 - BBC - January 21, 2021
President Joe Biden has signed 10 executive orders to boost the fight against Covid which has ravaged the US.
Vaccination will be accelerated and testing increased. Emergency legislation will be used to increase production of essentials like masks.
Announcing the moves, Mr Biden said it would take months to defeat the pandemic but America would "get through this" if people stood together.
The moves come a day after Mr Biden was sworn in as the 46th president.
In a break with former President Donald Trump, the policy stresses a national strategy rather than relying on states to decide what is best.
The Trump administration was widely accused of failing to get to grips with the pandemic.
In terms of total deaths from coronavirus, the US is the worst-hit country with more than 406,000 lives lost according to Johns Hopkins University. Nearly 24.5 million have been infected.
What's in the plan?
In his inauguration speech, Mr Biden warned that the coronavirus pandemic in the US was entering its "deadliest period".
Mr Biden's Covid-19 task force co-ordinator, Jeff Zients, told reporters that under Mr Trump there was no strategy at federal level and a comprehensive approach was lacking.
"As President Biden steps into office today, that all changes," he said.
"The American people deserve an urgent, robust and professional response to the growing public health and economic crisis caused by the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak," an introduction to the plan said.
A historic inauguration in unusual times
It said Mr Biden believed the government "must act swiftly and aggressively to help protect and support" essential workers and the most vulnerable.
Although executive orders do not require congressional approval, much of the funding for the planned measures is contained in a huge $1.9tn stimulus package announced by Mr Biden last week.
He will need co-operation from the Senate and House of Representatives for the package to be adopted smoothly.
The aim is to give 100 million vaccine doses by the end of April, and reopen most schools safely within 100 days.
Vaccine centres will be established at stadiums and community facilities.
There will be more funding for state and local officials to help tackle the pandemic, and a new office will be established to co-ordinate the national response.
The Defense Production Act will be used to speed up production of personal protective equipment and essential supplies needed for vaccine production. Mr Trump used the same piece of legislation to compel the production of items in short supply last year.
On top of the already announced rules on wearing masks and social distancing on all federal government property, face coverings will become mandatory on many planes and trains.
"What we're inheriting is so much worse than we could have imagined," Mr Zients said.
In a further break with the previous administration, Mr Biden's chief medical adviser, Dr Anthony Fauci, said the US would join the Covax scheme designed to deliver Covid vaccines to poor countries.
Speaking by video call to the World Health Organization in Geneva, Dr Fauci also stressed that the US would continue to provide funding for the WHO, in line with Mr Biden's move to reverse Mr Trump's decision to leave.
What happened on Wednesday?
Only hours after being sworn in, Mr Biden signed 15 executive orders, including reversing Mr Trump's policies on climate change and immigration.
Few were present to witness the oaths and ceremonies due to coronavirus restrictions.
Donald Trump, who has still not formally conceded the presidency to Mr Biden, snubbed the event in a departure from longstanding tradition.
"Democracy has prevailed," President Biden said after taking the oath of office in front of the US Capitol.
A major theme of his inauguration speech was unity after the major divisions laid bare during the Trump administration.
Mr Biden promised to be a president "for all Americans", including those who voted against him.
How have world leaders reacted?
Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany is the latest world leader to react to Mr Biden taking office, saying "there is a much broader scope for political accord with President Biden".
She said the climate crisis, coronavirus and security were issues ready to be addressed by the US, Germany and Europe.
China reacted through its ambassador in Washington, Cui Tiankai.
"China looks forward to working with the new administration to promote sound and steady development of China-US relations and jointly address global challenges in public health, climate change and growth," he said.
Russian Ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said: "I would like to believe that a new chapter in the development of the United States of America begins today and, of course, that a new chapter in the development of Russian-American relations begins as well. At least, we have repeatedly spoken about this." https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-55750884
President Joe Biden took 17 executive actions on Day One
