If the pen is mightier than the sword, then he who is occupying the Oval Office is wielding it as a means of unrestricted warfare, reminiscent of a form of Chinese torture called “lingchi,” where a person is subjected to hundreds of small cuts until death occurs. We, as a nation, are experiencing death by a thousand executive “cuts.”
This administration seems bent on doing everything in its power to undo what former President Trump has done to make America better and safer. Energy self-reliance, protected borders and limited immigration, protection of our children in school restrooms and locker rooms, protection of the unborn, creation of jobs and bringing jobs back to America, protecting America’s power grid from the Chinese - the list of “America First” policies is long; but now America is suffering from “a thousand” Executive Orders (EO), which is causing us to bleed and may one day bring America’s demise.
The nature of these EOs aims an attack on America fiscally, morally, educationally; in reality, they cut at every aspect of American culture and life. Some small groups cheer with each swathe of his blade; but already many are groaning. Look at just a few of these EOs, seeing how these “thousand” cuts are bleeding our society and culture, our children to death; hear the groans from those who bleed.
Sword Cuts on Economy:
An EO stopping the Keystone XL pipeline and putting a stop to fracking on Federal land was hailed by environmentalists, but there are many whose lives are being affected negatively (projected loss of 11,000 jobs), not to mention the attack on our nation’s energy independence.
Listen to the groan of The Ute Indian Tribe, second largest Indian reservation in the U. S., as they sent a sharply worded letter to Acting Secretary of the Interior Scott de la Vega: “The Ute Indian Tribe and other energy producing tribes rely on energy development to fund our governments and provide services to our members. Your order is a direct attack on our economy, sovereignty, and our right to self-determination. Indian lands are not federal public lands. Any action on our lands and interests can only be taken after effective tribal consultation.”
Biden’s moratorium is also causing great concern in New Mexico, which voted for the Democrat by better than 10 points over former President Donald Trump. Half of the state’s oil production happens on federal land, and brings in hundreds of millions of dollars in royalties each year, according to the Associated Press.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, sees it for the attack it is: “An all-out assault on American energy independence appears to be the top priority of the Biden Administration,” Crenshaw said, according to the Times. “From rejoining Paris to canceling Keystone and now this ban on drilling on federal land, it’s clear the campaign trail rhetoric of banning oil and gas is turning into actual policy in the Biden-Harris White House.”
Sword Cuts on Life:
The one who wields his pen like a sword has taken a stab at life as another EO deals with “Reproductive Health” for women, more correctly known as abortion – the murder of our young. More federal dollars will be used for abortion and the Mexico City Policy will be put back on the shelf as he reverses it; now your tax dollars will be freely used for abortion, not only here but around the world. Lila Rose states, “Pushing abortion on other nations is not compassion; it is ideological neo-colonization. This decision is a dark day for our nation; it will lead to more deaths of more children; and for that, Joe Biden should be ashamed.” A nation who hastens “to shed innocent blood” is ripe for judgment and cuts its own throat economically and in many other ways as it deadens its conscience. Leaders either attempt to stem the tide or open the floodgates; they either hasten the day of judgment or look to hold it back.
Sword Cuts on Morality:
Money will be going to transgender military operations and other LGBTQ agenda-driven costs.
With a renewal of Title IX identity politics, his pen is killing women’s amateur athletics in the United States by allowing transgender athletes to compete against women. Stabbing at safety, “the sword” allows an athlete with gender dysphoria to use whatever locker room they prefer. Generally speaking, female athletes are unhappy about this unfair, immoral, and scholarship-stealing EO.
Sword Cuts on America’s Safety:
This could literally affect every American’s safety. Not only do we see lower capped immigration and the border wall being done away with, but former President Trump’s EO regarding foreign countries meddling with the U.S. power grid has also been rescinded. The former president well understood the dangers of China, or any other foreign adversary, being able to create and exploit vulnerabilities in our power grid, putting the U.S. and its citizens in danger.
There are many, many more EOs coming out of the White House and most of them have one thing in common: They are attacks on America and her citizenry. They are sword swipes at righteousness, safety, common sense, our economy, life, and often the Constitution. The people mourn and groan; those who aren’t will unless God does a mighty work in the nation. As Proverbs 29:2 states: “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
