Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is feeling it. He knows Joe Biden is self-immolating and Elizabeth Warren is sinking fast. So, he and his staffers are, according to a campaign document obtained by the Washington Post, preparing “dozens of executive orders” to potentially be unilaterally enacted in his first few days in office, to hell with Congress. The executive mandates would affect a wide range of policy issues, the Post says, including immigration, the environment, and economic policy. Some would lift the cap on the number of refugees allowed into the country and immediately halt border wall construction, while others would direct the Justice Department to legalize marijuana, declare climate change a national emergency, ban the exportation of crude oil, and increase federal funding to abortion providers. His handlers are urging the aged Communist to utilize executive authority/fiat to right what they feel are the wrongs of the Trump administration, whether or not Republicans maintain control of the Senate or even take back the House this coming November. This is remarkably ironic, in that progressives are even now attempting to remove Trump from office for just such “obstructions of Congress” and “abuses of power.” But, as we know, rules do not apply to leftists.
Other executive orders thought to be under Sander’s consideration are: moving the United States to the Cyrillic Alphabet, mandating that everyone’s personal pronouns are “comrade,” and imprisoning or shooting all political opponents.
