    I think Trump's Project 2025 needs it's own thread to make as many people as possible aware of it, how Trump and the people he's surrounded himself with are dead serious about making it happen, and how devastating it will be if we allow Trump to make it happen. These are the various pages on his website which should show Trump means business. Trump's not just wishing or theorizing, he's planning and implementing.

    Trump and his minion's home page (the bolding is their's, not mine):


    "It is not enough for conservatives to win elections. If we are going to rescue the country from the grip of the radical Left, we need both a governing agenda and the right people in place, ready to carry this agenda out on Day One of the next conservative Administration.​
    This is the goal of the 2025 Presidential Transition Project. The project will build on four pillars that will, collectively, pave the way for an effective conservative Administration."​


    Trump's policy agenda page:


    "This book is an invitation for you the reader—Mr. Smith, Mrs. Smith, and Ms. Smith—to come to Washington or support those who can. Our goal is to assemble an army of aligned, vetted, trained, and prepared conservatives to go to work on Day One to deconstruct the Administrative State.​
    ...​
    The next conservative President will enter office on January 20, 2025, with a simple choice: greatness or failure. It will be a daunting test, but no more so than every other generation of Americans has faced and passed. The Conservative Promise represents the best effort of the conservative movement in 2023—and the next conservative President’s last opportunity to save our republic."​



    Trump's personnel (recruitment/application) page, bolding is mine:


    "Please fill out the questionnaire below and upload your resume for inclusion in the Presidential Personnel Database if you would like to be considered for positions in a presidential Administration.​
    Project 2025 is the effort of a massive coalition of conservative organizations that have come together to ensure a successful Administration begins in January 2025. With the right conservative policy recommendations and properly vetted and trained personnel to implement them, we will take back our government. Project 2025 is being organized by The Heritage Foundation."​


    Trump's training page:


    "The Presidential Administration Academy is a one-of-a-kind educational and skill-building program designed to prepare and equip future political appointees now to be ready on Day One of the next conservative Administration. This academy provides aspiring appointees with the insight, background knowledge, and expertise in governance to immediately begin rolling back destructive policy and advancing conservative ideas in the federal government."​


    Trump's first 180 days playbook page:


    "The time is short, and conservatives need a plan. The project will create a playbook of actions to be taken in the first 180 days of the new Administration to bring quick relief to Americans suffering from the Left’s devastating policies."​


    Trump's playbook, bolding mine (I've downloaded the pdf of their playbook for when Trump eventually pulls it from his website once the backlash really kicks in):


    "This book is an invitation for you the reader—Mr. Smith, Mrs. Smith, and Ms. Smith—to come to Washington or support those who can. Our goal is to assemble an army of aligned, vetted, trained, and prepared conservatives to go to work on Day One to deconstruct the Administrative State.​
    ...​
    This is an agenda prepared by and for conservatives who will be ready on Day One of the next Administration to save our country. The Heritage Foundation is once again facilitating this work, but as our dozens of partners and hundreds of authors will attest, this book is the work of the entire conservative movement.​
    ...​
    The next conservative President will enter office on January 20, 2025 ... The Conservative Promise represents the best effort of the conservative movement in 2023—and the next conservative President’s last opportunity to save our republic."​

    The link to the 111 groups Trump and his minions have cobbled together in a coalition to help Trump achieve his agenda.


    Groups include:​
    • ALEC - the Koch brother's foundation that has written all of the state laws that undermine child labor protection, worker's rights, air and water pollution protections, voter's rights, government assistance programs from those that need the help, and tax codes that made sure the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes.
    • Moms For Liberty - the group leading the charge to ban any book that treats anyone, who is not white, heterosexual, cis and Christian, as being equal and deserving of acceptance, tolerance and respect.
    • National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation - which works for corporations to prevent and bust worker's unions to help corporations pay a non living wage to employees and force them to work under horrible conditions.
    • Tea Party Patriots - the group that is MAGA and has taken control of the Republican party and supports Trump's efforts to stage a coup on Jan 6th so that he could stay in power even though he lost the election.
    • Turning Point USA - run by Charlie Kirk who fully embraces Christian Nationalism and the reducing of women to just being homemakers dedicated only to serving their husbands and their family, in that order

    Here are some articles and videos that give an overview of what Trump's Project 2025 plans to do if Trump wins the presidency:







    The Heritage Foundation cooked up this plan during the Reagan administration, but Reagan didn't let the Heritage Foundation fully implement it. Trump has claimed it for himself and has made it his plan, because it plays into the ultimate power and control that Trump wants. See the videos below.









    No matter how annoying, frustrating, distasteful, or unappealing it may be, either Biden or Trump will be the next president. No one else has a chance at winning the election. If Biden wins, we have issues to solve, but we still have our democracy.

    If Trump wins, we lose our democracy and have to fight for our freedom, if we aren't white, Christian, cis, heterosexual men who believe in the divine right of white, Christian, cis, heterosexual men to sit in domination over all others.

    The bottom line is this, vote for Biden if you want to preserve our democracy, or don't vote for Biden if you want to chance Trump winning, which would bring an end to our democracy.

    That's the grounded-in-reality choice folks, like it or not. Please vote for Biden so that we all have the freedom to live our lives how we want, to argue with each other, and to protest without fear of being imprisoned or "falling" out of window to our death.

    This election is not a drill, it's the real deal.

    I like the toolkit, but its priorities are wrong. It has climate change last at end of a long list of "other" impacts. That is the only existential item on the list. The rest include horrible abuses that may make us want to die, but that one will kill more people. They don't have any foreign policy. Doesn't project 2025 cover that? If so, that may be even more dangerous.

    Their foreign policy is to cozy up to RW dictators, full stop.

    I decided to clarify something. In the case of the U.S. foreign policy is domestic policy pushed forward. Its purpose is to push the theomythology of American Exceptionalism which automatically allows for American action wherever and especially whenever the agitprop is successful for particular situations.

    The America First and Project 2025 bullschlitz is foreign policy because it seeks to abandon any role internationally for the U.S. That is a radical foreign policy writ large.

    Hopefully people won’t be fooled into believing Trump and Republicans won’t force Christian Nationalism on us. They will and they keep letting us know that they will.


    I think the bibles and commandments in classrooms will keep anyone from being fooled.

    A significant percentage of women who are pro-choice also have children in schools that ban books and are starting to force Christianity into public school classrooms. The Republicans are waging their culture war against the majority of Americans and when given any power they win their war by legally imposing their will on others.

    I don't think many Americans can be fooled into not seeing the threat. I think some may not see just how much of threat they are, but I think they see it's enough of a threat to vote against it.

    From Future Interview:

    Reporter: You've said that America is a Christian nation and that you advocate for Christian nationalism

    Hawley: I never said that

    I mostly agree.

    Trump is already starting to distance himself from Project 2025. He’s got to walk a fine line between alienating his fundie supporters and not chasing away too many others.

    I do think there are people out there who can get lulled into thinking it’s not a big deal or it will never happen here, and overlook it is as the issue of importance that it is.
     
    Surprise, surprise, surprise!
    It would be good if you address substance. This has nothing to do with the other thread about Biden. Do you disagree that climate change should be more emphasized?

    Trump is a wild card. He absolutely needed to tow the far right conservative line in his first term to assure re-election, but now his priority is to get elected to avoid prison. That may mean moving more to the center to attract centrists. Once he's in office, I don't know how much of Project 2025 will be prioritized, but I think at least some of it will be implemented. I know he will prioritize whatever serves him, which means he will work to replace some civil servants in the Justice Department and law enforcement agencies, and maybe the IRS. He will only implement the rest if it helps him somehow.

    I read that Maggie Haberman went on CNN and actually said it “wasnt fair” to say Trump was for Project 2025. When NYT reporters are gaslighting for Trump on CNN, we have a problem.

    My opinion is that we should assume he will allow all of it to be implemented. He won’t want to be bothered from playing golf, rage tweeting, and directing the arrest of his enemies list. He won’t give a shirt what his Cabinet is doing, he will sign what they put in front of him. That’s my assumption, anyway.

    I think she is right. Remember that Trump used to be pretty liberal. He is using the Republicans. He doesn't believe anything he says. He is out for himself. Once his pawns get him in office to keep him out of jail, he'll do whatever serves him. He will do whatever he can to remain in office or at least keep his puppet in office.

    Sorry, totally disagree that she is right to do this. What she is doing is absolving him of any responsibility for a policy paper that his people drew up and that his campaign staff have been promoting. It’s gaslighting. It’s completely inappropriate from a journalist to run cover for a candidate in that way.
