The 2025 Presidential Transition Project, better known as Project 2025, is the effort of a broad coalition of more than 100 conservative organizations working together to ensure a successful new presidential administration begins Jan. 20.

Project 2025, spearheaded by The Heritage Foundation, seeks to restore democracy, to loosen it from the grip of the political elites in Washington, D.C.

But the fiercest attackers of Project 2025 are lining up to protect the deep state. In recent months, the project has faced outlandish, hyperbolic attacks.

The Biden-Harris campaign, talk show host Stephen Colbert, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., are just a few examples of those on the Left claiming that Project 2025 will be the end of America as we know it.

The Biden-Harris campaign even launched a large advertising buy to “expose” the dangers of Project 2025’s “far-right manifesto.” A group of House Democrats, including Reps. Ted Lieu, Jamie Raskin, and Pramila Jayapal recently established a “Stop Project 2025 Task Force.”

Lieu, a far-left California Democrat, said: “Project 25 [sic] is a radical, extreme, pro-authoritarianism plan pushed by conservatives who are desperate to take our country backwards.”

Although the project certainly would reform how the federal bureaucracy operates, the Left’s extreme fearmongering, misrepresentation, and outright lies are a gross exaggeration of its aims.

Here are five of the most outlandish myths the Left presents about this ambitious effort:

Myth 1: Project 2025 is part of Donald Trump’s campaign.

Myth 2: Project 2025 calls for a nationwide ban on abortion, in vitro fertilization, and contraception.

Myth 3: Project 2025 endorses the “authoritarian” unitary executive theory.

Myth 4: Project 2025 is the effort of a small group of elites to subvert and control the American people.

Myth 5: Project 2025’s proposals to shrink the bureaucracy would harm Americans and are contrary to American values.
