Trump Lies: "I know Nothing About Project 2025"

Project 2025

Trump is panicking and claiming absurdly that he "knows nothing about Project 2025" the Heritiage Foundation's backed manisfesto detailing step by step the overthrow of our federal goverment should Trump win the election.

Project 2025 was written in such a way to terrify transgender people putting our elemination a top priority.

The Republican plan worked perhaps too well as we begun sounding the alarm and Project 2025 is now receiving mainstream media attention.

“I know nothing about Project 2025,” Trump posted on his social media website. “I have no idea who is behind it. I disagree with some of the things they’re saying and some of the things they’re saying are absolutely ridiculous and abysmal. Anything they do, I wish them luck, but I have nothing to do with them.”

The 922-page plan outlines a dramatic expansion of presidential power and a plan to fire as many as 50,000 government workers to replace them with Trump loyalists. President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign has worked to draw more attention to the agenda, particularly as Biden tries to keep fellow Democrats on board after his disastrous debate.

“He’s trying to hide his connections to his allies’ extreme Project 2025 agenda,” Biden said of Trump in a statement released by his campaign Saturday. “The only problem? It was written for him, by those closest to him. Project 2025 should scare every single American.”

The Heritage Foundation also created a "Mandate for Leadership" in 2015 ahead of Trump's first term, ABC reports. Two years into his presidency, it touted that Trump had instituted 64% of its policy recommendations, ranging from leaving the Paris Climate Accords, increasing military spending, and increasing off-shore drilling and developing federal lands. In July 2020, the Heritage Foundation gave its updated version of the book to then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

The authors of many chapters are familiar names from the Trump administration, such as Russ Vought, who led the Office of Management and Budget; former acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller; and Roger Severino, who was director of the Office of Civil Rights at the Department of Health and Human Services.

Vought is the policy director for the 2024 Republican National Committee's platform committee, which released its proposed platform on Monday.

John McEntee, former director of the White House Presidential Personnel Office under Trump, is a senior advisor to the Heritage Foundation, and said that the group will "integrate a lot of our work" with the Trump campaign when the official transition efforts are announced in the next few months.

Candidates interested in applying for the Heritage Foundation's "Presidential Personnel Database" are vetted on a number of political stances, such as whether they agree or disagree with statements like "life has a right to legal protection from conception to natural death," and "the President should be able to advance his/her agenda through the bureaucracy without hindrance from unelected federal officials."

Supreme Court To Rule on Constitutionality of Tn Trans Youth Medical Ban

Supreme Court of the United States(2024, June 27). In Wikipedia.

On Monday the Supreme Court agreed to rule on the constitutionality of the Tennessee Law denying trans youth medical care. The justices agreed to rule on this after receiving a petition by the Biden Administration which alleges that Tennessee violates the 14th Amendment which guarantees equal treatment of all citizens under the law. 

Tennessee's law allows minors diagnosed with precocious puberty to receive the same medical treatment that youth diagnosed with gender dysphoria are being denied by the ban.

Not at issue is the effectiveness of either treatment as they have both been proven safe and are approved by every major US medical association.

The implications of the ruling can not be understated. Twenty-five states, all led by Republicans, have enacted laws banning trans youth from receiving gender-affirming medical care. 

Many states have since enacted laws becoming safe havens for families who need to escape these unjust laws. This has been brought to a head after conflicting decisions by District Courts some ruling in favor of trans youth care while some left the bans in place as they were litigated.

The fact that the justices decided to take up this question at all is significant, reports the 19th. The Supreme Court has declined to intervene on many issues related to transgender rights, including cases on bathroom access, school sports, whether trans people are protected under disability law, and whether trans students should receive confidential support in school. This inaction has repeatedly granted wins to LGBTQ+ advocates. Even when the Supreme Court allowed Idaho to enforce its ban on gender-affirming care for trans youth in April, it did not address the constitutionality of such bans or debate political interventions in medical care. Now, for the first time, the high court will take up the issue, which is what LGBTQ+ rights attorneys were hoping for.

The petition asks the Supreme Court to decide the bans' constitutionality which to most would be a no brainer. However, the impartiality of the conservative judges has been recently shown to be compromised leaving many in the transgender community with a feeling of dread and distrust.

Research has found that hormone therapy can improve the mental health of transgender adolescents and teenagers, according to the largest study to date published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Major national medical associations -- including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and more than 20 others -- agree that gender-affirming care is safe, effective, beneficial, and medically necessary, ABC reports.

As part of its mission, the AAP will continue to “ensure young people get the reproductive and gender-affirming care they need and are seen, heard and valued as they are,” AAP CEO/Executive Vice President Mark Del Monte, J.D., said in a statement.

LGBTQ advocates on Monday called on the Supreme Court to restore access to gender-affirming care for transgender youth across the country.
