PROJECT TWENTY-WHAT?

Disgraced former President Trump is scrambling to distance himself from Project 2025, the dystopian right-wing blueprint to overhaul America. The attempt is absurd.
  • Project 2025 is a sweeping 922-page plan to reimagine the federal government, crafted by a cadre of conservative organizations piloted by The Heritage Foundation, a right-wing think tank. The plan calls for undercutting checks and balances, super-charging executive branch power, gutting the civil service, embedding hardcore Trump loyalists throughout the government and ramming through a host of right-wing policies. The plan’s creators propose shredding anti-discrimination protections, criminalizing pornography, trashing anti-climate change measures, and using the military to arrest undocumented immigrants. Change would come, blitzkrieg-style, in the first six months of 2025.
  • Facing blowback, Trump ran for cover. He took to Truth Social on Friday to claim he knows “nothing about” Project 2025. But he added: “I disagree with some of the things they’re saying.” So he knows nothing about this plan… and disagrees with it. Uh-huh, right. Got it!
As usual, Trump is full of it.
  • Trump’s disclaimer doesn’t pass the smell test. Some of his top former aides wrote the damn thing. And we’re not talking about the ones who have drifted away from Trump. We’re talking about the lickspittles likely to rejoin his administration to implement this unholy plan. The Project 2025 brain trust includes Trump’s former Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows; former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Ben Carson; former trade advisor, Peter Navarro; former Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Russ Vought; and former White House personnel chief John McEntee. Trump’s campaign press secretary, Karoline Leavitt, appears prominently in a Project 2025 recruitment video.
Trump’s right on one point. He denounced his former aides’ plan, writing: “Some of the things they’re saying are absolutely ridiculous and abysmal.” Well… even a blind pig finds an acorn, once in a while.

House and Senate Democrats huddled in separate meetings on Tuesday to debate whether Biden should stay in the race. No universal consensus emerged. Sen. Peter Welch (D-VT), who has expressed skepticism that Biden can win, later told the Washington Post: “We have a ways to go.”
Two members of the progressive “Squad” in the House, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), are vocally backing President Biden’s candidacy, despite calls from elsewhere in the party for him to step aside. The two lawmakers join Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in supporting the embattled president.
Democratic strategist James Carville has sketched out a framework for a mini-primary to choose an alternate Democratic nominee in the event Biden backs out. The plan involves tapping former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to lead a series of regional town halls with aspiring nominees. Say what you will about this idea — it would make for some must-watch TV!
President Biden thrashed Russian President Vladimir Putin in remarks at the opening of NATO’s three-day summit in Washington D.C., declaring: “Make no mistake, Ukraine can and will stop Putin.” The U.S. and its allies announced historic shipments of new tactical air defense equipment for Ukraine for its war against Russia.
A Trump-appointed federal judge in Alaska resigned abruptly last week. Now, he’s the subject of a bombshell new report, which accuses Judge Joshua Kindred of creating a hostile work environment and engaging in sexual misconduct. Only the best people!
Trump might not pick Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) to be his running mate after all for the patently absurd reason that Vance has a beard, and Trump apparently hates beards, according to a report in The Bulwark. Vance… what can we tell you, man. You might be saved, in spite of yourself, by the hairs on your chinny chin chin.
Ultra-MAGA Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) is reportedly moving full steam ahead with her plan to force a vote on Wednesday to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt, despite pleas to hold off from House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), according to Politico. The plan would use an antiquated and long-dormant congressional power to personally fine Garland $10,000 per day for withholding audiotapes of President Biden’s special counsel interview.
