President-elect Joe Biden will sign 17 executive orders on his first day in office, reversing many orders issued by President Donald Trump, Fox News has reported.

Biden’s first order is to impose a federal mask mandate. The “100 Days Masking Challenge” will require masks and physical distancing in all federal buildings, on all federal lands and by federal employees and contractors.

Biden will also install a coronavirus response coordinator to oversee the Biden White House’s efforts to distribute vaccines and medical supplies.

Moreover, the order by President Trump to complete the border wall construction will be reversed, according to Biden officials. That order will require an “immediate termination” of funding for the border wall at the U.S.- Mexico border. Construction will be put on “immediate pause” and funding will be redirected, Fox News reports.

Biden will reverse the travel ban from several largely Muslim and African countries as well, despite concerns among opponents that some of these nations governments are incapable of providing the vetting needed to ensure the security of those entering the U.S., as previously reported by Sara Carter.

In 2017, Trump signed an executive order suspending entry into the U.S. from the nations of Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Iran, North Korea and Venezuela. The ban was extended in Jan 2020 to include an additional six countries.

According to Fox News, Biden will instruct the State Department to restart visa processing for affected countries in an effort to “restore fairness and remedy the harms caused by the bans.”

Biden is planning to reverse Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the World Health Organization. Biden is also expected to restore the White House’s National Security Council’s pandemic unit, which Trump disbanded early in his administration.

Biden is expected to rejoin the Paris climate agreement that was created during the Obama administration, to combat global warming.

Further, Biden will revoke a permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

Other actions Biden will take Wednesday include extending the student loan pause, extending eviction and foreclosure moratoriums, launching a government initiative to advance racial equity and signing an executive order that prohibits against workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
