7-3-24 Action Alert: Project 2025 and Immunity


We encourage you to read and share this newsletter with others who might not know about Project 2025 or the presidential immunity ruling by the US Supreme Court. 
--The INCO Leadership Team 

Project 2025 is the anti-democratic plan funded and promoted by right-wing, reactionary extremists to change our country into one based on authoritarianism, bigotry, and corruption. 

One reader thought people were exaggerating the danger, but when she read Project 2025 herself, she said they're actually understating our peril. 

Don't wait for others to save our country. 
Each of us must work to ensure pro-democracy victories.   

by Joyce Vance, Civil Discourse newsletter, June 30, 2024

Heading into Independence Day, we are reminded of the importance of protecting the Republic. That means continuing to read Project 2025 and sharing information about it with others. A surprising number of people are still unaware of Project 2025 and of the plan to revamp the federal government so as to remove checks that would prevent Trump from implementing an extremist, far-right agenda if he becomes president again. 

The explicit goal of Project 2025 is to remake America into a conservative nation by focusing on “broad fronts that will decide America’s future.” Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts identified those fronts as:

  • Restoring the family as the centerpiece of American life and protecting children—protecting children has become code for everything from censoring books to discriminating against gay and transgender people.

  • Dismantling the administrative state and returning self-governance to the American people—following the Supreme Court’s decision in Loper Bright, expect all sorts of court challenges of decisions made by administrative agencies, especially ones that protect Americans and their rights.

  • Defending the nation’s sovereignty, borders, and bounty against global threats—we know what the first Trump administration did to migrants. The next go-round would be worse, with more cavalier violations of people’s human rights. One under-discussed aspect of this is the damage that would be done to our economy if immigrants were suddenly absent, including their positive impact as workers, taxpayers, and people who purchase goods and services in the economy.

  • Secure God-given individual rights to live freely—what the Constitution calls “the Blessings of Liberty”—Project 2025, of course, doesn’t guarantee everyone the right to live freely, only those who fall within the minority of straight, white, Christians its proponents believe government should work for.

    Lest folks be tempted to think there will be time to sort this out if Trump is reelected, the Project 2025 website makes clear that is not the case. One of the key “pillars” of the project is a plan to implement it in the first 180 days of the administration; in other words, the battle plan is ready to go. The website says, “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.” 

    The Project 2025 website emphasizes that implementation of the Project begins on day one, “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.” It also touts a “Presidential Administration Academy,” whose mission is “Preparing Political Appointees to be Ready on Day One.”

    The claim on the website that Project 2025 is about “Building now for a conservative victory through policy, personnel, and training” isn’t empty political rhetoric. The plan is detailed and organized, down to sign-ups for people interested in working in the new administration.

    The only way to make sure Project 2025 doesn’t become the new American reality is to prevent Trump from taking office again. That means making sure as many American voters as possible are aware of it so they can understand what is at stake in this election. We can help to make that happen.
