Open Thread | Why I Keep On Coming Back to Project 2025

Because, Project 2025 IS NOT TRUMP SPECIFIC.




Which means that they support it, and would have no problem seeing it implemented.

It’s Not the Gaffes. It’s the Plans.
Pay attention to what Trump is going to do.

NOV 13, 2023

…….A fetish for brutality
Over the weekend, Donald J. Trump joked about the hammer attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband; praised the Chinese use of the death penalty; referred to political opponents as “vermin”; lavished praise on Hungarian proto-fascist strong man, Viktor Orban; and seemed confused about who was actually president. Trump quoted Orban as saying that “Obama” should resign and restore Trump to the presidency.

Understandably, it’s tempting to focus on Trump’s gaffes, which are, indeed, a target-rich environment. The stumbles, the bumbles, the confusion.

But the problem with Trump isn’t the gaffes — underneath the verbal clownishness Trump is telling us who he is and exactly what he intends to do.

He genuinely admires the brutality of the Chinese; he finds violence exciting; and he’s a sincere fanboy of the world’s fascists. And he keeps tell us what his presidency will mean if and when he regains power. There’s no subtlety here.


Trump amplified his message in his Veteran Day speech: Trump Promises to ‘Root Out’ the Left – The New York Times

Former President Donald J. Trump, on a day set aside to celebrate those who have defended the United States in uniform, promised to honor veterans in part by assailing what he portrayed as America’s greatest foe: the political left.

Using incendiary and dehumanizing language to refer to his opponents, Mr. Trump vowed to “root out” what he called “the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country.”

“The threat from outside forces is far less sinister, dangerous and grave than the threat from within,” Mr. Trump said Saturday in a nearly two-hour Veterans Day address in Claremont, N.H.


He has said this before, of course. But the rhetoric is escalating: The enemy is us. The “vermin” are fellow Americans And he is coming for them.

So, once again, it is essential to pay attention. Trump may be clownish, but the clown car is carrying a neutron bomb. Possibly several.

Last week, the Washington Post detailed how Trump and allies are planning to weaponize the Justice Department to go after his opponents and critics. Trump himself confirmed as much.

This weekend, we got a deeper glimpse at Trump 2.0 from the NYT: “Sweeping Raids, Giant Camps and Mass Deportations: Inside Trump’s 2025 Immigration Plans.”

Former President Donald Trump is planning an extreme expansion of his first-term crackdown on immigration if he returns to power in 2025 — including preparing to round up people living in the United States without legal permission on a vast scale and detain them in sprawling camps while they wait to be expelled.


They are LITERALLY telling you what he intends to do.
I mean, no vague, where you can hide around the edges of intent.
No Frank Luntz-approved dogwhistle language.
They are straight up telling you what they intend to do….

And, still, there are those who purse their lips about why they can’t vote for President Biden, or won’t vote at all.

They aren’t playing… look up the Mississippi Plan of 1875, the White Supremacy Campaign (that was the actual name) in 1898 Wilmington, North Carolina… this is a federal replica of these plans.

They are explicitly telling us their plan.

🚨 NEW: Hundreds of people are spending tens of millions of dollars to install a pre-vetted, pro-Trump army of up to 54,000 loyalists across government to rip off the restraints imposed on the previous 46 presidents.

Axios (@axios) posted at 5:27 AM on Mon, Nov 13, 2023:
If Trump were to win, the Trump-first loyalists would be ready for legal, judicial, defense, regulatory and domestic policy jobs. His inner circle plans to purge anyone viewed as hostile to the hard-edged, authoritarian-sounding plans he calls “Agenda 47.”

I did not know this, but, this fits, and even more reinforces that this is a REPUBLICAN PRESIDENCY PLAN.

    In the end, it looks like Sen. Monty Mason (D) lost to Republican Danny Diggs by just 725 votes out of 67k+ cast. Very, very unfortunate and frustrating.

    The Spanish-language news network Univision seems to be sucking up to the guy who wants to put millions of Latino immigrants in camps. I’m guessing money is involved.
