This Biden Executive Order No One’s Talking About May Be the Most Dangerous of All
The Biden regime has already thrown plenty of unconstitutional power grabs at the American people openly. But it’s the actions flying under the radar that could have the most ruinous impact on our freedoms.
An executive order signed by Biden on April 15 has drawn little attention in most outlets, yet the ramifications of the policy, ostensibly designed with the aim of curtailing Russian influence in America, would be far-reaching and erode foundational constitutional safeguards.
The order is entitled “Executive Order on Blocking Property with Respect to Specified Harmful Foreign Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation.”
Despite the name, it ultimately has little to do with Russia and more to do with providing the current administration with the power to deprive American citizens of life, liberty, and property without due process — all on the mere basis of an accusation that they are somehow serving the interests of Russia.
The EO empowers the federal government to deprive individuals of their property if they’re deemed to be offenders:
“All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in.”
How does Biden’s order define the offenders? Section 1 explains that the above applies to anyone deemed “to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged or attempted to engage in” anything from “malicious cyber-enabled activities” to “interference in a United States or other foreign government election,” to “activities that undermine the peace, security, political stability, or territorial integrity of the United States, its allies, or its partners.”
What’s notable is that the EO gives the Biden administration free rein to determine what constitutes “malicious activities” and “democratic processes or institutions.” Language in Section 1 states that the property rights of an individual will be nullified as “determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State” with the attorney general providing feedback in some instances.
All of these, of course, are Cabinet officials selected by the left-wing Biden administration. In other words, Americans will no longer be charged and tried as the Constitution guarantees, but have their entire livelihoods placed in the hands of politicians acting as judge, jury, and executioner.
This EO does not require that those deprived of their property actually be accused of a crime. Again, it allows anyone to be targeted on the whim of the secretaries of State and Treasury even if a person has not been charged or indicted.
Furthermore, this order specifically targets the spouses and adult children of individuals found culpable under its directives. Being “a spouse or adult child of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to subsection (a)(ii) or (iii) of this section” is one of the conditions under which the Biden White House can now go after your assets.
The Constitution explicitly outlaws Corruption of Blood, a former practice in British law that punished the descendants of those guilty of high crimes, such as treason, by prohibiting their children from inheriting the parents’ property.
The April 15 order violates this principle. It places the sins of the fathers upon the heads of the children and enacts exactly the kind of unjust, vengeful politics the Founders sought to do away with here in America.
As Leo Goldstein at The American Thinker observes about Biden’s EO:
“Deprived Persons” essentially become untouchables, as dealing with them in any way is expressly prohibited without additional determinations.…
Giving legal representation, hosting the website, selling food, and giving medical care to a “Deprived Person” is automatically prohibited. Section 4 prohibits transactions that “cause a violation” of this EO, even absent intent or knowledge. This serves as a hint to preemptively cut ties with anyone the Biden regime targets.
This order will likely also give banks, credit-card providers, Big Tech, and other major services the justification they need to cut off conservatives on the grounds that it is now illegal to aid and abet those who serve the interests of the Russian Federation.
Anyone who has been paying attention over the last several years can see what’s coming. Why else has the mainstream media been talking incessantly about Russian interference since Donald Trump arrived on the political scene? Why has Biden in recent days played up talk about Russian threats by sending, and then recalling, naval ships to the Black Sea?
Ultimately, Biden’s EO will be used to label dissenters as “Russian assets” and thus openly persecute voices on the right. Patriots everywhere must mobilize to ensure this order is defanged.
