Project 2025

Project 2025, a frightening political agenda and 900-page extremist plan, is being crafted by conservatives in anticipation of a potential 2024 Republican Presidential victory with the guidance of the Heritage Foundation.

Established in 2022, Project 2025 aims to reshape the U.S. Federal Government to support Donald Trump’s wish list and far-right agenda.

It aims to reclassify tens of thousands of merit-based federal civil servant jobs as political appointees so Trump can replace them with extreme, conservative loyalists.

In April 2024, the Heritage Foundation stated that the Project 2025 policy includes “arresting, detaining, and removing immigration violators anywhere in the United States.”

Project 2025’s plan is to decimate the federal government’s protections around reproductive rights, LGBTQ, civil rights, and climate change and the dismantling and defunding of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Department of Education. It also calls for the elimination of other federal agencies like the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Commerce and ending the independence of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

The Project also seeks to infuse the government with elements of Christianity.

Another one of Project 2025’s goals is to take away the independence of the Justice Department, prosecute anyone who provides or distributes abortion pills by mail, and slash federal money for research and investment in renewable energy, calling for Trump to “stop the war on oil and natural gas.”

Moreover, Project 2025 is pushing to slash corporate and income taxes and abolish the Federal Reserve.

Project 2025 also calls for over $1.5 trillion in cuts to Social Security, including an increase in the retirement age to 69.

Project 2025’s main objective is to fortify presidential power so if Trump wins the election, he can single-handedly impose right-wing policies on the nation.

Project 2025 would also give Trump free rein to break any law he pleases and to assist others to do the same, like Putin. Trump has repeatedly said he would use the Justice Department to prosecute and lock up his opponents and critics.

The Koch network and Leonard Leo, a right-wing activist and Trump supporter, helped to fund the initiative. Mr. Leo is best known for his role in building the conservative supermajority on the Supreme Court and his close and questionable friendship with Justice Clarence Thomas.

Project 2025 provides an unsettling blueprint for an autocratic, authoritarian presidency. Many critics believe Project 2025 is a cover for what would be four years of personal vengeance against anyone Trump views as his “enemy.”

Trump, a wannabe king and absolute dictator, needs a rock-solid support system, and the Heritage Foundation and its Republican financial partners are working 24/7 to build one for their supreme leader.

According to The Washington Post, Jeffrey Clark, a contributor to the Project and a former official within the DOJ, would advise the future president to immediately deploy the military for domestic law enforcement by invoking the Insurrection Act of 1807. This act empowers the president of the United States to deploy the U.S. Military and the National Guard troops to suppress civil disorder, insurrection, or rebellion.

Jeffrey Clark was indicted in Georgia last summer. He was charged with violating the state’s racketeering law and attempting to make false statements. He has pleaded not guilty.

The Project also recommends the arrest, detention, and deportation of undocumented immigrants living in the United States and promotes capital punishment and the speedy “finality” of those sentences.

Paul Dans, the Director of Project 2025, recently explained that Project 2025 is “systematically preparing to march into office and bring a new army, aligned, trained, and essentially weaponized conservatives ready to do battle against the deep state” to “regain control” of the government.

The policies and agenda of Project 2025 are set to begin immediately after the presidential inauguration in January 2025. However, most of Project 2025’s proposals would require controlling both chambers of Congress and would likely face immediate legal challenges if implemented.

Regardless of legal challenges, it’s clear that Project 2025 is planning for a government dictatorship under Trump. If Trump wins, there is no coming back from the damage he will cause, and his agenda will irrevocably harm millions of Americans.
