The 1776 Project: The Ongoing Battle over Tyranny

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Editors’ Note: The 1776 Report is the product of a commission announced on Constitution Day, September 17, 2020 by President Trump to summarize in accurate terms the principles of the American founding and how these principles have shaped our country. Its purpose was to advise the President and the nation how to prepare for the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in July 2026. The commission was led by Dr. Larry Arnn, President of Hillsdale College. On Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021, newly installed President Biden abolished the 1776 Commission by Executive Order and erased the 1776 Report from the government website. The 1776 Report is available to all Americans and should be a key reading for the civic training of all American students. The 1776 Report is available here.


If you remember 1976, you recall “the Bicentennial Minute” that taught a moment’s worth of American history each night on CBS, the story of how and why our nation began on July 4, 1776.


“And the rockets’ red glare, The bombs bursting in the air. Gave proof through the night. That our flag was still there.” We should always be reminded that the reason why we have lived with so much freedom was because the men of 1776 were willing to fight and die in a revolution.

Those are facts.

But an anti-American elite promoting globalism (and foreign entanglements) regularly lies to us, saying America actually “began” in 1619, when African slaves arrived in the English colony of Virginia. Note, Virginia was an English colony. They were not the first slaves on the continent: the Spanish had been bringing slaves to the Americas for a century at that point.


America as an independent nation and idea free of Old World entanglements, which has attracted new immigrants every day ever since it began in 1776.

The American Revolution began in 1775, but it was colonists fighting for rights until 1776 when our founders said, “No, we’re done with foreign powers pulling our strings. We are starting a whole new nation and way of life right here, right now.”

That should be an obvious undisputed fact, but the Trump administration needed a 1776 commission to remind us of that fact, and the anti-American Biden administration says, “we like following the bidding of foreign powers because they pay our family and friends a lot of money.”


So, Team Biden immediately dismantled the 1776 commission, deleting its website to promote their “America is racist, borders are racist, let’s instead be citizens of the new globalist order” agenda…..

….Old Marxist ideologies determined to sever our legacy from our hearts and minds, and the memories of the battles during the great days of July 4, 1776. A need to tear down our statues as reminders of our great accomplishments, in favor of a Statism Utopia with a Messiah…..

….So this 4th of July do not think of our battle for Revolution to be one of the past, but one in a series of battles against tyranny through trade, and public opinion that must be overthrown each generation. Ben Franklin’s own son (the Hunter Biden of his time) was making his fortune from Britain (the China of its day) and fled to Canada with the other “pro empire, one world order crowd.”…..

…..No dark forces in direct conflict could defeat our American heritage then or now, but our own lack of awareness, vigilance, and readiness, might leave an opening for new forms of invasions (perhaps in Cyber, or in biowarfare) fired in the dark of night…..
