A little reality to ponder (811 words)
"The Emperor" by Robert Zimmerman

What does one call a “sovereign” that sits upon his throne and issues edicts to the serfs he rules over? He’s called an Emperor. Ruling and governing are two different things. What distinguishes an Emperor from a democratically elected head of government, like a president?
It appears America is courting Imperial rule. I remember when Barack Obama announced in a cabinet meeting:  “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone… and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions…”(1/14/2014) The inference was that he didn't need Congress. In fact, he didn't. DACA (2012) resulted from an Executive Order by Obama. He elected to override the power of Congress to write immigration law. He admitted it was unconstitutional, but did it anyway.
Mr. Biden learned well from him. Mr. Biden has reckoned he does not need Congress either. In the first 10 days of his presidency, he signed 41 executive orders. Who do you suppose wrote them? Congress is not even in session. He had an index card of talking points for each order. He either didn’t know what was in them or couldn’t remember. These EOs are being signed to reverse positive policies from the Trump administration.
President Biden canceled the Keystone pipeline with an Executive Order. He axed thousands of skilled jobs right along with it. He is responsible for the jobs lost. Environmental expert John Kerry spoke at a press conference shortly thereafter. Mr. Kerry said those workers can find other jobs. “… They can be the people to go to work to make solar panels.” 1/27/2021. Will the government pay their relocation costs to China? That’s where the solar panels are being manufactured. Mr. Kerry can voluntarily shuttle the workers to China on his private jet. Maybe they plan to resurrect Solyndra. That scam only cost taxpayers $535 million.
I understand suggestions were made to build permanent fences and barriers around the Capitol grounds. They can call it the American Kremlin. The Kremlin has a big brick wall around it. Pelosi can take the money allocated for the border wall and pay for the American Kremlin wall.
Another great Executive Order by Mr. Biden is the one sending hundreds of millions of dollars to foreign countries to pay for abortions. I guess the 62,000,000 abortions in the United States since 1973 haven't been enough. I wonder what American taxpayers think concerning the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars for abortions outside the United States? Mr. Biden has a phone and a pen. He has no need of Congress. America has been operating post-Constitutionally for several years. 
Mr. Biden signed an executive order allowing biological males who identify as females to compete with biological females in athletics. Since our postmodern society does not believe differences exist between males and females, this should not be a problem. How does this advance the fight against COVID-19?
Mr. Biden is committing hundreds of millions of dollars to WHO. You remember them; that’s the agency that didn’t dispute the lies from China regarding COVID-19. A WHO spokesman recently said not enough evidence exists to prove the virus came from China. Maybe Hunter can help China come clean. He has a very lucrative relationship with them. Rep. Swalwell should be able to help. His girlfriend Fang Fang, the Chinese Communist Spy he was cavorting with, can get him answers.
Biden has called for cessation of wall building on the southern border. The money is allocated, and contracts were signed. We can stop worrying over the annoying border wall stopping hundreds of thousands of illegals from around the world flooding into the country. They won’t need to work so hard at it now. The caravans from Central America are already moving toward our border. What I can’t understand is why would anyone consider coming to an awful place like America? Democrats believe America is awful. If they don’t, they should stop talking like it is. “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.” Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) 8/15/2018 CNN.
The political left now owns the levers of power of the federal government, and they identified half the country as terrorists. To be a terrorist, you need only disagree with them. The party in power has identified half the population of the US as “domestic terrorists.”
John Brennan appeared on MSNBC and had very interesting things to say concerning Pro-Trump supporters: He said intelligence agencies, “are moving in laser like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about the Pro-Trump ‘insurgency’ that harbors religious extremist, authoritarians, fascist, bigots, racists, nativists, even libertarians." (1/20/2021 MSNBC) Previously, John Brennan accused a sitting president of treason. He never accounted for the false accusation that I heard.
America is skating on thin ice with HOT blades. Unity means nothing to an Emperor.

Author Notes
America changed its mind about what kind of government it wants. The first days of the Biden Administration gives us a clear picture.
