Biden Would Abuse Executive Power and Ignore Federalism

Here’s a winning issue… not. Irrespective whether wearing a mask is a good idea or not, do you really want the President of the United States to have the power to micromanage your life like that? Hint: he doesn’t.

(CNN)Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden said if elected president, he would make wearing a face covering in public compulsory, furthering himself on the issue from President Donald Trump who has stressed that masks are voluntary and has flouted public health recommendations.

“The one thing we do know is these masks make a gigantic difference. I would insist that everybody out in public be wearing that mask. Anyone to reopen would have to make sure that they walked into a business that had masks,” Biden told CNN’s affiliate in Pittsburgh, KDKA, while wearing a black mask.
Pressed if he’d use federal power to mandate wearing a mask in public, Biden responded, “Yes, I would. From an executive standpoint, yes I would.”
Asked again if that meant he would “in effect” mandate mask wearing, Biden said, “I would do everything possible to make it required that people had to wear masks in public.”
Take notice of how hard the reporter tried to rescue Biden from himself.

    It must be “Bad Joke Friday”, worrying about Biden possibly abusing Executive Power when you have the poster child for that in office right now. Not too funny, more like sad and tragic.

  2. Mar

    Gee, Le Roi, what executive order has hurt you?

  3. Le Roi du Nord

    For starters there is 13765, 13766, 13771, 13778, 13792. There are more, but those will get you thinking.

    Most of those executive orders listed reversed Obama orders that took away more rights. Most of Trumps orders are about giving power back to the people. I can live with that. Obamacare is certainly a prime example. An order protecting law enforcement officers is bad? Reducing the excessive number of executive orders is bad? I know! They’re bad because they came from Trump. Not surprising at all and totally predictable.

  5. Le Roi du Nord

    And then of course there were the EOs that were found to be unconstitutional.

  6. guinness

    Obama’s? Agree. Obamacare being the biggest one.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    You think that the ACA was an EO?

  8. Kevin Scheunemann

    Biden is a dictatorial thug who has no clue where he is.

  9. Le Roi du Nord

    trump is a dictatorial thug….

    Fixed it for you.

  10. Kevin Scheunemann


    All you did was show your Trump derangement.

    I am in Las Vegas for work and the dimwit governor declared everyone has to wear a mask just about everywhere.
    Never mind that Clark County has about 80% of the cases in the state but he mandates masks for areas that don’t have Chinese virus problems? I am sure people in Tonopath or Goldfield are just thrilled with the dimwit governor.
    And while most people are wearing masks, those refusing to wear a mask are mostly young Black people. Followed by older white men and women.

    There goes Lying Crazy Pat. Off your meds again?

  13. Mar

    Ok Crazy Lying Pat, what would have you done?
    By the way, twitter is not a news site and cannot be taken seriously. If you get your news from there, you are a moron.

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    And now the courts have ruled that his unauthorized use of military $$ for his ego wall were both unlawful and unconstitutional. And Mexico hasn’t paid a dime toward it.

  15. Jason

    Dont worry, the US Supreme Court will correct the 9th Circuit Court’s ruling, as it has many times in the past few years. Having hope in Clinton appointed judges shows just how wrong you can be.

    March 2020: Trump learns Putin is trying to kill U.S. soldiers
    March 2020: Trump does nothing
    April 2020: Trump does nothing
    May 2020: Trump pushes for Putin to be let into G8

    Where are you now, GOP “patriots”?

  18. guinness

    Keep quoting all the fake news. I find it amazing that anyone with an ounce of common sense not only believes everything from these sources, but goes on to quote them.

    I come back every month or so to this forum and nothing ever changes. The same handful of liberal trolls quoting ridiculous Trump hate rants. Sadly, a waste of time as opposed to reading other sources of intelligent points of view.

  19. Pat

    “….other sources of intelligent points of view.“

    Such as?

  20. Mike

    Just because Trump didn’t say anything about Russia doesn’t mean nothing was done about the Taliban. That is what the Ginsu missiles are for.

  21. Pat

    We’ve been dealing with the Taliban for a couple decades, even inviting them to Camp David.

    But what about Russia paying bounties on US soldiers?

    But it is possible Lying Pat, that the story is false.
    Then what?
    Will you apologize for being so stupid?

  24. Pat

    But, in the likelihood it’s true Marbles, what will you say?

  25. Mar

    I’m waiting for your answer first, Crazy Pat.
    You don’t get to ask a question without answering the question posed to you first.
    Your parents ever teach you any manners?
    Didn’t think so.

  27. dad29

    Quoting Steve Schmidt on matters of national security?

    Why not quote LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy?

  28. Pat


    I answered your question.

  29. Mar

    So, Le Roi Jr (Pat), where did you answer it?

  30. Pat

    Above. What don’t you understand about the word, no.

  31. Pat


    What will you say in the likelihood it’s true?

  32. Mar

    Well, Lying Pat, it looks like you are wrong.
    So, you apology please.

  33. Pat

    Wrong about what?

  34. Mar

    About President Trumo in general, but this latest Russian hoax.
    So, apology please.
    And no, Twitter is not news.

  35. Pat

    It’s a hoax??? Says who???
