    2017.07.05 - Full list of Trump's executive orders

    Jul 5 2017, 3:22 pm ET

    Here’s the Full List of Donald Trump’s Executive Orders

    by Avalon Zoppo and Amanda Proença Santos

    Since Donald Trump took office early this year he has signed a long and ever-growing list of executive orders, hoping to fulfill a number of his campaign promises.

    In his first three weeks alone, Trump signed a burst of orders to undo many of President Barack Obama's policies. Later in June, in his first meeting with his Cabinet, he claimed to have accomplished more than most previous U.S. presidents:

    "Never has there been a president — with few exceptions, in the case of FDR, he had a major Depression to handle — who's passed more legislation, who's done more things than what we've done," Trump said. "I think we've been about as active as you can possibly be at a just about record-setting pace."

    Trump's claim hinges on the slew of executive orders he has signed, which in his first 100 days exceeded that of any other recent president...

    "Buy American, Hire American"

    Signed: April 18, 2017

    The order has two parts. The "Hire American" portion of the bill targets the H-1B visa program, which allows businesses to hire high-skilled workers from outside the U.S., by putting less emphasis on the lottery system used to determine which companies can sponsor visas.

    The "Buy American" portion of the order directs agencies to tighten rules that give priority to U.S. companies when hiring contractors or purchasing goods. This would be done by reducing the use of waivers and exceptions to current laws. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross must submit a review of "Buy American" loopholes within 220 days.

    Realities of Executive orders - news releases with presidential signatures

    i just do not like being bsed!

    executive order --“merely an exercise of the President’s bully pulpit” rather than a genuine effort to alter public policy

    They’re dog-and-pony shows,” said one Trump administration official. “It’s what you do when you can’t do anything else.”


    merely allow him to announce his intentions

    more about messaging than governing,

    close look at the language of his orders shows that most of them are basically news releases with presidential signatures


    instructions to his Cabinet secretaries to look into the issues at hand.

    ================================================== =======
    Here are th truths

    Trump’s order on reorganizing the government simply directed his budget director to devise a plan for reorganizing the government.

    order on the opioid crisis set up a commission

    orders on rebuilding the military, streamlining permits for manufacturers, and preventing violence against law enforcement instructed Cabinet secretaries to devise plans to achieve those goals

    orders on trade deficits, drug cartels and burdensome tax regulations called for reports on those issues, essentially homework assignments issued on national television.

    steel imports—did not impose any retaliatory duties; it just called for expediting an ongoing investigation of the issue.

    education, even though it merely directed his education secretary to make sure her department’s regulations comply with existing laws

    265 million acres worth of national monuments. But the order didn’t end anything; it assigned a review and a report.

    “Implementing an America First Offshore Energy Strategy,” --another review of Obama's offshore drilling restrictions—

    The EPA one --(was not done by Obama - EPA did it - so its a totally different thing!)
    Trump’s EPA will have to go through a new rule-making process to rescind or even revise it, a process cluttered with legal, scientific, and bureaucratic obstacles.

    much harder to eliminate federal rules than it is to order review

    Agriculture and Rural Prosperity,”replacing it with a new task force that’s supposed to recommend new policies

    “Promote Excellence and Innovation at Historically Black Colleges and Universities,” moved a small office dealing with black schools— back to the White House.

    financial reforms—“That’s a biggie,”merely directed his Treasury secretary to file reports

    I thought the GOP hated EOs? Wasn't that part of their gripe about Obama was that he signed too many?

    Quite a while back she went to China and if they would invest 500000 or more they speed up getting a visa for them

    Six times Trump said executive orders were bad before he decided they were actually good

    Setting aside the question of whether a raw tally of executive orders is an effective metric of accomplishment, the move represents a particularly brazen about-face on messaging. Like many Republicans, Trump was deeply critical of Obama's use of executive orders despite the fact that Obama issued them at a slower pace than any president since Grover Cleveland.

    Here's what he has said about them in the past.

    DONALD TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDERS: MORE SYMBOL THAN SUBSTANCE

    The number and the scope of what he’s doing is completely normal” when compared with past presidents, “and by and large insignificant,” says professor Jeffrey Engel, director of the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University.

    Read just the titles - when you actual read some of them (I have) they do nothing but tell someone to ponder an idea

    All they all say is form a committee and get back to us before you croak that is

    My dear fellow WSers

    Adore many of you. I am obligated to inform you that I can take no personal responsiblity for any of you that laugh yourself to death

    I knew nothing about EO. In the beginning I thought they did stuff!

    After about 6weeks I started playing around with learning what the heck they are and what they mean
    I experianced much releif!

    Many of us have shared this nighmare with each other and know I get insane when supporters start listing all these EO as real sh**

    Preface: H has got like 898 postions not there.

    -We got like32 congress people investigating him for treason.

    Who the heck is supposed to do all this

    EO expire after 90-120 days if the committees have not formed.

    I decided I am going to do one real EO.

    Here is the hysterical part

    This IS a pop quiz

    How many of you beleive that he can even understand any of this one and or read it

    Congratulation all of you said zip!

    March 28, 2017, President Trump issued an Executive Order establishing a national policy in favor of energy independence, economic growth, and the rule of law. The purpose of that Executive Order is to facilitate the development of U.S. energy resource

    The President has directed agencies to review existing regulations

    As far as I know review means nothing other than review! JMO !

    There can be no 10% copyright it is public .

    For your enjoyment here one is -- while glancing just ask yourself if you believe he has read any of this

    To this day I bleive he has no idea that they are not law - to him it is like issuing a memo and poof it happens!

    they are all like this review !

    Enjoy!

    AGENCY:

    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
    ACTION:

    Announcement of review.
    SUMMARY:

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces that it is reviewing and, if appropriate, will initiate proceedings to suspend, revise or rescind the Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions From New, Modified, and Reconstructed Stationary Sources: Electric Generating Units.
    DATES:

    April 4, 2017.
    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

    Mr. Peter Tsirigotis, Sector Policies and Programs Division (D205-01), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, NC 27711; telephone number: (888) 627-7764; email address: airaction@epa.gov.
    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    By this notice, EPA announces it is reviewing the Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions From New, Modified, and Reconstructed Stationary Sources: Electric Generating Units (New Source Rule), 80 FR 64510 (October 23, 2015) and, if appropriate, will as soon as practicable and consistent with law, initiate reconsideration proceedings to suspend, revise or rescind this rule. The New Source Rule established national emission standards to limit carbon dioxide emissions from new fossil fuel-fired power plants.
    I. Background

    The New Source Rule was promulgated under the authority of Section 111 of the Clean Air Act. 42 U.S.C. 7411. That Section authorizes EPA to issue nationally applicable New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) limiting air pollution from “new sources” in source categories that cause or contribute to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. 42 U.S.C. Section 7411(b)(1). Under this authority, EPA had long regulated new fossil fuel-fired power plants to limit air pollution other than carbon dioxide, including particulate matter (PM); nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2). See 40 CFR part 60 subparts D, Da. In the New Start Printed Page 16331Source Rule, EPA for the first time used Section 111(b) to limit carbon dioxide emissions from new power plants.
    Due to concerns about EPA's legal authority and record, 24 States and a number of other parties sought judicial review of the New Source Rule in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. State of North Dakota v. EPA, No. 15-1381 (and consolidated cases) (D.C. Cir.). The case has been fully briefed, and oral argument in the D.C. Circuit is currently scheduled for April 17, 2017.
    II. Initiation of Review of New Source Rule

    On March 28, 2017, President Trump issued an Executive Order establishing a national policy in favor of energy independence, economic growth, and the rule of law. The purpose of that Executive Order is to facilitate the development of U.S. energy resources and to reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens associated with the development of those resources. The President has directed agencies to review existing regulations that potentially burden the development of domestic energy resources, and appropriately suspend, revise, or rescind regulations that unduly burden the development of U.S. energy resources beyond what is necessary to protect the public interest or otherwise comply with the law. The Executive Order also directs agencies to take appropriate actions, to the extent permitted by law, to promote clean air and clean water while also respecting the proper roles of Congress and the States. The Executive Order specifically directs EPA to review and, if appropriate, initiate reconsideration proceedings to suspend, revise or rescind the New Source Rule.
    Pursuant to the Executive Order, EPA is initiating its review of the New Source Rule and providing advanced notice of forthcoming rulemaking proceedings consistent with the President's policies. If EPA's review concludes that suspension, revision or rescission of the New Source Rule may be appropriate, EPA's review will be followed by a rulemaking process that will be transparent, follow proper administrative procedures, include appropriate engagement with the public, employ sound science, and be firmly grounded in the law.
    EPA's ability to revisit existing regulations is well-grounded in the law. Specifically, the agency has inherent authority to reconsider past decisions and to rescind or revise a decision to the extent permitted by law when supported by a reasoned explanation. FCC v. Fox Television Stations, Inc., 556 U.S. 502, 515 (2009) (“Fox”); Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Ass'n of the United States, Inc., et al, v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co., et al, 463 U.S. 29, 42 (1983) (“State Farm”). Moreover, the Clean Air Act itself authorizes EPA to reconsider its rulemakings. 42 U.S.C. 7607(b)(1), (d)(7)(B). The Clean Air Act complements the EPA's inherent authority to reconsider prior rulemakings by providing the agency with broad authority to prescribe regulations as necessary. 42 U.S.C. 7601(a). The authority to reconsider prior decisions exists in part because EPA's interpretations of statutes it administers “are not carved in stone” but must be evaluated “on a continuing basis,” Chevron U.S.A. Inc. v. NRDC, Inc., 467 U.S. 837, 857-58 (1984). This is true when—as is the case here—review is undertaken “in response to . . . a change in administrations.” National Cable & Telecommunications Ass'n v. Brand X Internet Services, 545 U.S. 967, 981 (2005). Importantly, such a revised decision need not be based upon a change of facts or circumstances. Rather, a revised rulemaking based “on a reevaluation of which policy would be better in light of the facts” is “well within an agency's discretion,” and “[a] change in administration brought about by the people casting their votes is a perfectly reasonable basis for an executive agency's reappraisal of the costs and benefits of its programs and regulations.” National Ass'n of Home Builders v. EPA, 682 F.3d 1032, 1038 & 1043 (D.C. Cir. 2012) (citing Fox, 556 U.S. at 514-15; quoting State Farm, 463 U.S. at 59 (Rehnquist, J., concurring in part and dissenting in part)).
    In conducting this review, EPA will follow each of the principles and policies set forth in the Executive Order, consistent with EPA's statutory authority. The Agency will reevaluate whether this Rule and alternative approaches are appropriately grounded in EPA's statutory authority and consistent with the rule of law. EPA will assess whether this Rule or alternative approaches would appropriately promote cooperative federalism and respect the authority and powers that are reserved to the States. EPA will also examine whether this Rule or alternative approaches effect the Administration's dual goals of protecting public health and welfare while also supporting economic growth and job creation. EPA will review whether this Rule or alternative approaches appropriately maintain the diversity of reliable energy resources and encourage the production of domestic energy sources to achieve energy independence and security. Additionally, EPA will assess this Rule and alternative approaches to determine whether they will provide benefits that substantially exceed their costs. In taking any actions subsequent to this review, EPA will use its appropriated funds and agency resources wisely by firmly grounding in the statute its actions to protect public health and welfare.
    Dated: March 28, 2017.
    E. Scott Pruitt,
    Administrator.

    Warning This is an official BS alert -- BS alert

    I understand that I only read fake news. WIth that in mind I go to the white to read the EO on Infrastructure he paraded around for 45 seconds before engaging in the worlds most obnoxious presidential speech according to scholars across the land.
    As with every other one here is what it is :

    If you are old you will not see anything new before you pass.

    so..........

    Step 1 : 180 days of the date of this order,establish a Goal.
    or such longer period of time as determined by the Director of OMB
    (committee )

    Step 2 completing Federal environmental reviews and authorization decisions..within 2 years. (another committee )

    Step three: measured from the date of the publication of a notice of intent to prepare an environmental impact statement..not more than an average of approximately 2 years,(another committee )

    Step 4
    issue guidance for establishing a performance accountability system to facilitate achievement of the CAP Goal. (another committee )

    Thus far close to 5 years are passed and now we are another committee to issue some guidance--no bulldozers yet

    Step 5 performance accountability system will be established ...shall track each major infrastructure project. (another committee )


    According to Trump this amazing Eo is cutting bs

    Here is just a few ways he is doing this

    I am only doing a little of what is in there in goes on for pages in all this speeding up nonsense

    Federal cooperating and participating agencies shall identify points of contact f

    cooperate with the lead Federal agency point of contact,

    respond to all reasonable requests for information from the lead Federal agency .

    participating agencies for each major infrastructure project shall all record any individual agency decision in one Record of Decision (ROD),

    issue separate NEPA documents,

    Everyone of these stupid things are just like this one. That is what I have been trying to say all they do is create committees to report to a committee of another committees report to the committee about the committee.

    They DO nothing - none of em. None of them have funding powers. SO all this BS has to happen before the battle for bucks even start

    It a PR show for his base

    They. Do. Nothing.

    So when supporters start yelping about all this he has done he has done nothing -- they all are like this. I know I only know fake news -- well pick any one of em - they are at link below -- read em yourself - they are BS

    Here they are all of them
