Happy Hour News
Did you see the news? The fascists are getting a shadow gubmint ready to plug-n-play should they win the White House next!
[C]onservative organizations are coming together to develop well-trained personnel and a detailed policy agenda for the next presidential administration.
Project 2025, organized by The Heritage Foundation, is bringing together 45 conservative groups to develop policy and personnel for the next administration, Associate Director Spencer Chretien said in an editorial for The American Conservative.
And you know, they handily give us a Twat for it so we can read it for ourselves:
Back to the story:
“For decades, as the left has continued its march through America’s institutions, conservatives have been outgunned and outmatched when it comes to the art of government,” Chretien writes. “More and more of our politicians are willing to use the government to achieve our vision, because the neutrality of ‘keeping the government out of it’ will lose every time to the left’s vast power.”
We’ve out-gunned them? Really? I’m all ears, do continue to tell us your Big Secret Plan like all the Bond Villains eventually do:
Project 2025 is creating a detailed policy book, online personnel database, interactive training sessions and a day one implementation plan for conservatives to govern effectively. More than 350 leading conservatives have contributed to the policy book, which “outlines a vision of conservative success at each federal agency during the next administration,” Chretien detailed.
That is usually called a “platform.” Or do you mean something else?
The second initiative, a “conservative LinkedIn” will launch in March and give conservatives an opportunity to contend for government roles.
Ah, the parallel conservative online worlds that will show all the Libtard Snowflakes who’s boss! (See Reaganbook, GAB, GETTR, Truth Social, for the stunning successes of this effort.) It always works out so well.
Project 2025’s third proposal is a “Presidential Administration Academy” designed to “turn future conservative political appointees into experts in governmental effectiveness.” A deep knowledge of how to use power will prevent career federal bureaucrats from “tripping us up,” Chretien believes.
Yup, they are gonna teach Possum Hollar how to wear shoes, brush their coats, and become a diplomat in seven e-z installments. But I’m only guessing.
The final pillar of Project 2025’s vision is a plan to turn detailed policy ideas into “an implementation plan for each agency to advocate to the incoming administration” and effectively use the government to solve problems. It will ensure the next conservative administration is ready to counteract the “permanent political class” in two years, Chretien says in the editorial.
And they never tell us what they consider problems that need the Final Solution. Oh, wait. It’s the problem they’ve been trying to solve since Reconstruction.
OK, I kid, but not by much. It is alarming that they want to have something at the ready that they can just plug in and run the fascist agenda starting on Day 1. The thing is, all of the different so-called Think Tanks have competing plans always ready. The only difference that I can see is that Heritage saw what the creeps over at the Federalist Society achieved taking over the courts in a such a short time, and they thought they should get their beaks moistened, too.

Do they realize this sounds just like the weaponization of gummit? Oh hell. Nevermind.

The GQP has been trending towards fascism for many years before Trump became a thing, but apparently they’re in a bigger hurry now that Biden is the President. I’m guessing that the saner American people will avoid associating with them and reject their sordid promises. It’s been a long time coming and we might have to treat their violence with more violence. I’m still hoping we can find a pathway forward that doesn’t lead to violence, but as a close friend once told me, you have to be prepared…

“We have two years, and one chance, to get this right.”
That sounds promising…
Our friends across the pond have always done this — but a Prime Minister isn’t guaranteed 4 years.
Imagine how much more damage TFG could have done if he had the pieces in place in January of 2017.
Imagine how much more, say, any D could get done if s/he didn’t have to spend a year assembling the team. Answer: 33% more.
Ds need to do this, too.
Ifffff…Trump was elected again, do they really think he, or someone like him, would let someone else tell HIM what to if he was in charge again? Huh, huh, huh…
