Colorado Supreme Court Bars Former President Trump From The Ballot

syktyvkar-komi-russia-august-26-2023

In a shocking move clearly aimed at rigging the 2024 election, the Colorado Supreme Court has issued a ruling disqualifying former President Donald Trump from the state’s Republican presidential primary ballot. The decision, based on the Constitution’s insurrection clause, asserts that Trump’s conduct surrounding the January 6, 2021, events at the U.S. Capitol renders him ineligible to hold public office.

This landmark ruling, the first of its kind, sets a precedent that could have far-reaching implications. The Colorado Supreme Court’s assertion that Trump is disqualified under the Civil War-era provision raises questions about the application of the insurrection clause to a former president and challenges the democratic principles upon which the nation was founded.

The court’s majority contends that including Trump’s name on the 2024 presidential primary ballot would be a wrongful act, aligning with Section Three’s disqualification criteria. This decision, while specific to Colorado, sends shockwaves through the nation’s political landscape, with potential consequences for Trump’s candidacy in the upcoming elections, to say nothing of the integrity of the 2024 election as a whole.

This move comes amid a wave of lawsuits challenging Trump’s eligibility filed in over 25 states, and the Colorado case, initiated by six voters, emerges as a significant threat to his 2024 campaign. The court’s decision places Trump’s political future in jeopardy, prompting speculation about the potential ramifications for his candidacy in other states.

Trump, known for his resilience, is expected to appeal this decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, setting the stage for a high-stakes legal battle over his right to run for office. As the Colorado Supreme Court pauses its decision until January 4, the day before the state’s Secretary of State Jena Griswold is set to certify candidates for the March 5 primary, the timing adds an extra layer of urgency to the proceedings.

The case hinges on Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, a provision designed to prevent those who engaged in insurrection and violated their oath to support the Constitution from holding public office. The Colorado lawsuit, brought by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington on behalf of voters, contends that Trump’s actions on January 6 warrant disqualification.

It is, of course, worth noting that Donald Trump actively discouraged people from storming the capitol on January 6. This is clearly a politically motivated decision coming at a time when Donald Trump is dominating the Republican primary and consistently beating his 2020 opponent, President Joe Biden, in a potential rematch.

Trump Drops “Yuge” VP Hint

national-harbor-md-usa-february-241

Former President Trump has teased that he has “sort of a pretty good idea” of who his vice presidential running mate will be but plans to announce his selection during this summer’s Republican National Convention.

In a recent interview at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C., Trump shared his thoughts following meetings with the National Republican Senatorial Committee. When asked if his potential running mate was present at any of these meetings, Trump responded, “Probably. I don’t want to go into details, but I think the announcement will probably happen during the convention. We have some very good people in mind.”

The Republican National Convention will be held from July 15-18 in Milwaukee. Among the names speculated to be on Trump’s shortlist is Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin. Trump mentioned, “Yes, I think I could consider that. He would be on that list.”

During the interview, Trump was also asked about his thoughts on President Biden as a father following Hunter Biden’s conviction on federal gun charges. Trump acknowledged the difficulty of the situation, saying, “It’s a very serious thing. I understand that whole subject pretty well because I’ve had it with people who have it in their family. It’s a very tough thing, whether it’s alcohol or drugs. It’s a tough moment for any family involved in that.”

Hunter Biden was recently convicted of three felony charges related to the purchase of a revolver in 2018 when he lied on a federal gun-purchase form by claiming he was not illegally using or addicted to drugs. President Biden has stated that he will not use his presidential powers to appeal his son’s conviction, emphasizing his pride in Hunter’s recovery journey.

Later in the interview, Trump addressed former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s potential Senate run. Hogan, a Republican who did not endorse Trump in the 2016 and 2020 elections and has endorsed Nikki Haley over Trump, is someone Trump would like to see win. “Yeah, I’d like to see him win,” Trump said. “I think he has a good chance to win.”

As the anticipation builds, all eyes will be on the Republican National Convention this summer for the much-awaited announcement of Trump’s vice presidential pick.

Trump Fights Back Against Rigged Judicial System

former-president-donald-trump-jr-speaks

Former President Donald Trump has declared himself “the political prisoner of a failing nation,” following a Manhattan jury’s outrageous verdict finding him guilty in his business records trial. Trump’s bold statement, made on Truth Social on Tuesday, resonates with patriotic Americans who are increasingly concerned about the blatant politicization of the justice system.

In his video, Trump underscored the immense importance of November 5th, calling it “the most important day in the history of our country.” This pivotal date marks the next presidential election, where Trump vows to reclaim his rightful place and once again “make America great again.”

The jury’s verdict, which found Trump guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree related to payments made by Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney, to adult actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election, is seen by many as nothing short of a politically motivated witch hunt. This prosecution, spearheaded by a biased legal system, is a transparent attempt to manipulate the 2020 election outcome and tarnish Trump’s legacy.

“I am the political prisoner of a failing nation,” Trump declared. “But I will soon be free, on November 5th, the most important day in the history of our country. And we will, together, make America great again. Thank you.”

Trump has been outspoken about the trial’s true nature, telling reporters that the guilty verdict was orchestrated by the Biden administration to cripple a powerful political opponent. He rightfully described the decision as a “rigged verdict,” stressing that the “real verdict” will be delivered by the American people on November 5th.

In the wake of this unjust verdict, Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) have witnessed a massive surge in donations, a testament to his enduring support. The Trump campaign reported an impressive $141 million raised in May alone, with nearly $53 million pouring in within just 24 hours following the conviction. This flood of financial support underscores the unwavering loyalty and enthusiasm of Trump’s base.

An overnight poll by HarrisX, conducted after the jury’s politically charged decision, revealed that 43 percent of respondents would vote for Trump if the election were held today, compared to 42 percent for Biden, with 14 percent undecided. Trump’s favorability also saw a notable increase, with an ABC News poll showing his favorable rating rising to 31 percent from 29 percent in March, while Biden’s favorability dipped to 32 percent from 33 percent.

These developments are a rallying cry against a justice system they see as weaponized for political gain. The former president’s unyielding resolve and continued popularity highlight the deep divisions within the country and underscore the critical importance of the upcoming election.

This trial and its aftermath serve as a glaring reminder of the lengths to which the establishment will go to undermine Trump. For Trump and his supporters, the fight for justice, integrity, and the future of America is far from over. November 5th stands as a pivotal moment in the nation’s history, a chance for the American people to right their wrongs and restore true leadership.

New York Show Trial Convicts Trump on All Counts

former-president-donald-trump-jr-speaks

Former President Trump, in a shocking and unprecedented decision, was found guilty on all counts in what many see as a blatantly political show trial. This conviction, making him the first former president in U.S. history to be found guilty of a crime, is widely viewed as a shameless attempt to imprison a political opponent and disrupt the 2024 election.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg charged Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree—charges Trump vehemently denied, pleading not guilty. The trial has been condemned by many as a farce designed to damage Trump’s candidacy and silence his voice.

Despite a glaring lack of evidence, the jury found Trump guilty on all counts. Each count carries a maximum prison sentence of 4 years, totaling a potential sentence of 136 years—a sentence clearly intended to crush his political future.

Judge Juan Merchan, whose impartiality has been questioned from the beginning, presided over the trial and invited the jury to deliver its verdict after only two days of deliberations. The timing of the sentencing, set for July 11th—just four days before the Republican National Convention—is seen as a strategic move to impact Trump’s formal nomination as the 2024 Republican presidential candidate.

Speaking to reporters moments after the verdict, Trump expressed his outrage at what he described as a politically motivated sham trial.

“This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt as a rigged trial and disgrace. It wouldn’t give us a venue change,” Trump declared. “We were at five percent or 6% in this district, in this area. This was a rigged, disgraceful trial.”

He continued, “The real verdict is going to be November 5th by the people. And they know what happened here and everybody knows what happened here. You have a Soros-backed DA and the whole thing.”

Trump maintained his innocence, stating, “We didn’t do anything wrong. I’m a very innocent man. And it’s okay. I’m fighting for our country. I’m fighting for our Constitution. Our whole country is being rigged right now.”

“This case was orchestrated by the Biden administration to wound or hurt an opponent, a political opponent. And I think it’s just a disgrace. We’ll keep fighting—we’ll fight till the end and we’ll win because our country’s gone to hell. We don’t have the same country anymore. We have a divided mess. We’re a nation of decline, serious decline,” he asserted.

Trump highlighted the current state of the nation, saying, “Millions and millions of people are pouring into our country right now from prisons and from mental institutions, terrorists. And they’re taking over our country. We have a country that’s in big trouble.”

“This was a rigged decision right from day one, with a conflicted judge who should have never been allowed to try this case. Never,” he reiterated. “And we will fight for our Constitution. This is long from over.”

During closing arguments, Trump’s defense attorneys firmly stated his innocence, arguing that District Attorney Bragg “did not meet the burden of proof. Period.”

“President Trump is innocent. He did not commit any crimes. The district attorney did not meet the burden of proof. Period,” said defense lawyer Todd Blanche. He emphasized that the case was about documents and not about any alleged encounter with Stormy Daniels or a nondisclosure agreement.

Blanche clarified that the charges revolved around whether Trump had anything to do with payments to his ex-attorney, Michael Cohen, on his personal accounting ledger, to which he argued, “The bookings were accurate and there was no intent to defraud and there was no conspiracy to influence the 2016 election.”

Blanche further discredited Cohen’s testimony, pointing out his history of lying to Congress, judges, and his own family, stating, “You cannot send someone to prison based upon the words of Michael Cohen. The records are not false and there was no intent to defraud.”

In contrast, prosecutor Joshua Steinglass argued that Trump’s intent to defraud “could not be any clearer,” accusing him of creating an elaborate scheme to conceal payments and benefit himself.

Steinglass defended the use of Cohen as a witness, despite his dubious credibility, claiming that Cohen’s actions were a reflection of Trump’s own unethical practices.

The defense’s motion to dismiss the case after Cohen’s testimony was denied, highlighting the court’s bias and the predetermined nature of the trial.

Former President Trump remains defiant, promising to continue his fight for justice and the American people, confident that the truth will prevail and that the real verdict will be delivered by the voters in the upcoming election. This conviction is not just an attack on Trump but on democracy itself, and it is imperative that the American people see through this charade and stand up for their rights and their Constitution.
