Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

How Do We End the Deep State?

The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday is the fact that a faction known as the Deep State is controlling the government of the United States. Most of my long-term readers understand that I believe that the Deep State would be known as a secret combination(s) if we were living in Book of Mormon times.

Secret combinations were responsible for the total destruction of two ancient American civilizations – the Nephites and the Jaredites. Moroni wrote counsel for the people of the latter-days about the danger of secret combinations. In Ether 8:18-25, Moroni explained that the Jaredites “formed a secret combination” (v. 18) and that the Lord does not work in secret combinations (v. 19). He said that secret combinations “are had among all people” (v. 20).

21 And they have caused the destruction of this people of whom I am now speaking, and also the destruction of the people of Nephi.

22 And whatsoever nation shall uphold such secret combinations, to get power and gain, behold, they shall be destroyed….

23 Wherefore, O ye Gentiles [He wrote to use!], it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built up to get power and gain – and the work, yea, even the work of destruction come upon you, yea, even the sword of the justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be.

24 Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you….

25 For it cometh to pass that whoso buildeth it up seeketh to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries; and it bringeth to pass the destruction of all people….

Moroni said that secret combinations are among all people and that we should not let them get control of our nation. Tyler O’Neil wrote that the next conservative president would have the great task to take down the Deep State. A group of conservatives are planning for that time in a project known as 2025 Presidential Transition Project, also known as Project 2025, and laying the groundwork for the task. 

O’Neil wrote that every new president goes through a transition. There are many people working for the federal government who support big government policies, so liberal presidents have many people helping to move their agenda forward. “President Trump faced stiff headwinds from a hostile federal bureaucracy he often referred to as “the deep state.”

While liberal presidents have many helpers, “Most good conservative presidents don’t really get it all figured out until the end of their second term,” said Rick Dearborn, former deputy chief of staff to President Donald Trump, in an interview with The Daily Signal. Dearborn gave four pillars of Project 2025 – “which does not just represent The Heritage Foundation alone but ‘the entire conservative movement.’”

Pillar 1: Mandate for Leadership

The book, “Mandate for Leadership: The Conservative Promise,” represents the first pillar of the strategy, Dearborn explained. The book, to which more than 450 authors contributed, runs nearly 900 pages long, with in-depth explanations and recommendations for various aspects of the federal government, from the White House Office to the Department of Health and Human Services to the Intelligence Community, and so much more….

This in-depth treatment of the administrative state, peppered with major policy changes such as splitting the Centers for Disease Control into two separate agencies, represents merely one of the four pillars, however.

Pillar 2: People Are Policy

Project 2025 isn’t just publishing a book – it’s also compiling a list, and checking it far more than twice.

“I think it all starts with the people,” Dearborn said. “Conservatives have never had a large number collected in one spot of conservative scholars and academics and policy experts that you could just pull off the shelf and say, ‘Okay, if you’re going to populate the Department of Defense, here are the five people that really understand the conservative philosophy on how to promote and protect our national security.’”

Project 2025 does not just intend to compile a list of strong potential appointees; it also aims to train these people for the jobs they would take under a conservative president, Dearborn explained….

If the good conservatives who might fill the key political positions don’t know what they need to know, Project 2025 will step in and equip them.

Pillar 4: Executive Orders

Project 2025 is also compiling an appendix to equip a future conservative president on policy. “When you write an executive order, when you’re working on a regulation, if you want to roll back a regulation, if you want to promote a program, if you want to work with outside government-affiliated groups, how does this work?” Dearborn asked. The appendix aims to answer these questions and give “some game plans that they can use so that they’re not having to build them from scratch from day one.”

Dearborn said he wishes that the Trump transition team had a book like “Mandate for Leadership” in 2016.

He noted that Project 2025 will be meeting “with all of the different current announced conservative presidential candidates” and some who “may not have yet announced, providing them a book, and walking through what the different pillars are.”

A Call to Action

The former deputy chief urged conservatives to join Project 2025 in a concrete way….

There is a secret combination, or a combination of secret combinations, working within the government that will eventually destroy the government of the United States unless their power is destroyed. Project 2025 is one way that conservatives are preparing to destroy the Deep State and bring America back to compliance with the Constitution. If they are successful, they will save the Constitution and the American way of life. If unsuccessful, America will continue to slide further down the slippery slope to destruction. What choice do we have?
