If you are a fan of Obama, you’re probably hating on President Trump right now. Honestly, nobody cares what you think if you are. Everything you know is wrong, and you make an ass out of yourself every time you say you believe Obama was a good President. However, if you’re a fan of actually being America full of Americans, that puts America first and throws out useless un-American nonsense out the window, you’re likely loving what President Trump has been doing since he took office.
So what exactly has President Trump been up to? Well, he’s accomplished nearly 100 good deeds in his zeal to make America Great Again, but we came up with a Top Ten List because of the immediate and long-term profound effects they will have.
Over the past 12 months, President Trump has been on a mission to try to erase the stain of Barack Obama’s legacy from America.
“I’ve been very active in overturning a number of executive actions by my predecessor,” Trump boasted in November before lamenting that he could not go so far as to reverse Obama’s pardon of two Thanksgiving turkeys.
By that point in his presidency, however, Trump had already taken aim at what was clearly tyrannical executive overreach by the Obama administration, dismantling dozens of actions put in place by the previous White House occupant.
Trump’s executive-order counteroffensive carries more than mere symbolic value and represents a dramatic policy shift that will impact the nation and the world for years to come, and the world thanks him for doing so.
Here are the 10 most significant Trump reversals of Obama orders so far.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
Signed in 2012, Obama’s executive order offering legal protections from deportation to children brought into the country by invading illegal alien parents offered an illegal respite for nearly 800,000 people. While it was not a permanent solution, a handful of RINOs in Congress sided with Democrats in the view that children protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program should ultimately be granted U.S. citizenship. But on Sept. 5, 2017, President Trump put that possibility in doubt. “Make no mistake, we are going to put the interest of AMERICAN CITIZENS FIRST!” Trump tweeted ahead of an announcement by his attorney general that he was rescinding Obama’s action. The matter now rests with Congress.
Transfer of surplus military equipment to local police
In 2015, in the wake of what some viewed as the outsize police response to the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., Obama issued an order banning the sale of surplus military equipment such as grenade launchers and armored vehicles to local police forces. On Aug. 28, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that Trump was scrapping the restriction “to make it easier to protect yourselves and your communities.”
Normalizing relations with Cuba
Denouncing the Obama administration’s 2014 decision to normalize diplomatic relations with Communist Cuba, President Trump announced on June 16, 2017, that he was putting travel and trade restrictions with the island nation back in place. “The previous administration’s easing of restrictions on travel and trade does not help the Cuban people — they only enrich the Cuban regime,” Trump said in a Florida speech.
The Paris climate agreement
Having seen the mountain of evidence that proves man-made climate change is nothing more than global socialism designed to impoverish 1st-world nations and hand over mountains of cash to 3rd world barbarian states, President Trump told the globalists that the USA would no longer participate in their world-wide lie. His June 1, 2017, decision to walk away from the Paris climate agreement signed by his predecessor ultimately left the United States isolated as the only country in the world not onboard.
Offshore and Arctic oil drilling
Making good on the long-held Republican slogan “Drill, baby, drill,” Trump overturned a 2016 Obama executive order banning oil drilling in parts of the Atlantic Ocean and the Arctic.
“This is a great day for American workers and families,” Trump said at a signing ceremony on April 28, 2017. “And today we’re unleashing American energy and clearing the way for thousands and thousands of high-paying American energy jobs.”
Obama’s rules that guaranteed equal access to the internet — aka net neutrality — were enshrined in 2015 with a vote from the Federal Communications Commission. But new FCC commissioners are appointed by whichever president is serving, and when Trump took office he installed new leadership, which voted on Dec. 14 to scrap the policy, opening up the internet to what critics fear will result in a tiered system of information and entertainment. What the critics fail to mention is the fact that the net neutrality rules brought investment in improving the infrastructure of the Internet nearly to a halt, leaving millions and millions of Americans with a standard of internet lower than most of the rest of the world.
The Clean Water Rule
On Feb. 28, 2017, President Trump began his assault on Obama’s executive order that gave Obama control over America’s waterways in the name of “Clean Water”. Sadly, the #1 water polluter during Obama’s reign of terror was the EPA itself. Trump’s first step was to order the EPA to “review and reconsider” the restrictions. Then, in June, the administration officially rolled back the environmental protections for over half of the nation’s tributaries.
Caps on greenhouse gas emissions at power plants
Keeping a campaign promise to the coal industry, Trump signed an executive order on March 28, 2017, intended to begin dismantling Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which required power plants to reduce carbon emissions. Trump’s new “Energy Independence” order also reversed a ban on coal leasing on federal lands and loosened restrictions on methane emissions. Several states immediately filed a lawsuit against the administration, claiming the move endangered the health of citizens.
Of course, those states are ruled by globalist Communists that wish to erase America’s borders that are complicit in perpetuating the fraud of man-made climate change.
Scope of national monuments
Applauded by industry and decried by tree-hugging lunatics, Trump signed an executive order on April 26, 2017, that swept away Obama’s use of the 1906 Antiquities Act to protect federal lands from oil drilling, mining and other development. “Today we’re putting the states back in charge,” he said at the signing. In December, the administration announced it would reduce the size of the Obama-created Bears Ears National Monument by 85 percent, and the Bill Clinton-designated Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument by 50 percent. In reality, Obama had seized the land so fellow Democrats could make sweet deals with foreign nations to lease federal land for various things such as mining. Harry Reid was set to make millions in such a deal with the Chinese after the Bureau of Land Management put the Bundy Ranch under siege in Nevada.
Bathroom protections for transgender students
One month into his term, Trump rescinded an Obama directive that allowed students to use school bathrooms that matched their self-identified gender. Trump’s rationale for the reversal was that states, rather than the federal government, should decide how to handle the question.
American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten decried the move, telling the Associated Press that it “tells trans kids that it’s OK with the Trump administration and the Department of Education for them to be abused and harassed at school for being trans.”
Weingarten of course fails to mention that transgenderism is a mental illness that requires intensive psychotherapy to cure, and that by pandering to this mental illness in the name of Cultural Marxim, they are causing horrifying, long-term damage to the mentally ill transgender’s minds.
So as we come into 2018, sane Americans can breathe a sigh of relief. The stain of the corrupt Obama regime is slowly but surely being erased from the land.
