Colorado Supreme Court Illegally Takes Trump off the Ballot

Lawless Marxist Democrats Prove Without a Doubt who the Real "Threat to Democracy" is with Illegal Colorado Supreme Court Ruling telling people that they can't vote for the Candidate they Want by ruling Trump off the Ballot!


by Ben Whedon, Just the News.com, December 20, 2023

The decision Tuesday evening by Colorado's highest court to disqualify GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump from the state's 2024 primary ballot under the 14th Amendment sparked outrage among allies and predictions from legal experts that the ruling will ultimately reach the Supreme Court and be overturned.

Former Federal Election Commissioner Hans von Spakovsky called the 4-3 decision by the state Supreme Court "badly judged, banana-republic election interference" that will be reversed in the federal courts. “This is a nakedly partisan, anti-democratic decision by the Colorado Supreme Court that ignores the law and prior precedent," he declared.

Prominent George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley likewise decried the ruling as "strikingly anti-democratic in what it now allows states to do in blue and red states alike" as he implored the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene quickly. "I think the factual and legal basis of this opinion is really so porous that the Supreme Court will make fast work of it," he told Fox News.

he Colorado Supreme Court determined that Trump was ineligible under the amendment's insurrection clause because as president in 2021 he incited the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

The Trump campaign immediately condemned the ruling and vowed to appeal it to the nation's nine justices.

“Unsurprisingly, the all-Democrat appointed Colorado Supreme Court has ruled against President Trump, supporting a Soros-funded, left-wing group’s scheme to interfere in an election on behalf of Crooked Joe Biden by removing President Trump’s name from the ballot and eliminating the rights of Colorado voters to vote for the candidate of their choice,” campaign spokesman Steven Cheung said in a statement obtained by NBC News.

“We have full confidence that the U.S. Supreme Court will quickly rule in our favor and finally put an end to these unAmerican lawsuits,” he also said.

The statement was made amid an outpouring of support from such Trump loyalists as Ohio GOP Sen. J.D. Vance, whom the former president endorsed in 2022.

"Apparently democracy is when judges tell people they’re not allowed to vote for the candidate leading in the polls?" Vance posted on social media. "This is disgraceful. The Supreme Court must take the case and end this assault on American voters."

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, also among Trump's strongest Capitol Hill supporters, said, "The 'pro-democracy' party at work. How ridiculous."

In a 4-3 decision, the Colorado high court upheld a lower court decision that Trump engaged in the insurrection and overturned its conclusion that the ban doesn’t apply to the presidency. The ruling will be placed on hold until Jan. 4, 2024.

"It will not stand, and we trust that the Supreme Court will reverse this unconstitutional order," said Trump personal lawyer Alina Habba.

Former Trump White House lawyer Ty Cobb on CNN predicted the Supreme Court would reverse the decision, saying "I think this case will be handled quickly. I think it could be 9-0 in the Supreme Court for Trump."

House Speaker Mike Johnson, who has a law degree, also expressed confidence that the high court would rule in Trump's favor and said the state court ruling "attempting to disqualify President Trump from the Colorado ballot is nothing but a thinly veiled partisan attack."

Colorado, which will have 10 Electoral College votes in 2024, has voted Democrat in the past four presidential elections.

"This is an unprecedented and illegal action by liberal Colorado judges," Montana GOP Sen. Steve Daines said. "I plan to send a letter to the US Supreme Court asking them to immediately reverse this blatant election interference for the sake of our democracy."

At least one congressional Democrat praised the court’s decision.

“The Colorado Supreme Court has it right,” Colorado Rep. Jason Crow posted on X.“The Constitution protects the right to vote and bars candidates who abuse the process or engage in insurrection. Donald Trump has done both.”

Predictions of a Trump surge

While Trump is a defendant in several court cases including ones related to his family business and the 2020 presidential election that he lost, he continues to gain in the polls.

The RealClearPolitics.com polling average has him leading his closest primary challenge, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, by almost 51 points.

"Colorado has just proven Trump's theory true that he's the victim of political persecution. His poll numbers won't drop. On the contrary, they will rise," pollster Frank Luntz said.

NBC News reporter Garrett Haake wrote: "One effect this Colorado ruling will have: Republicans once again rallying to Donald Trump's defense, against perceived liberal judges/election interference. Four weeks to Iowa, expect to see Trump's primary competitors in a position where they're defending him publicly ... again."

Trump's son Eric Trump posted: "Prediction: This Colorado decision will add 5%+ points to [Trump's] already runaway polls."

Reaction from abroad

Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele, whose government has faced international criticism (and acclaim) for its mass incarceration of gang members and suspected criminals, declared that "[t]he United States has lost its ability to lecture any other country about 'democracy'."

The Colorado Supreme Court 4-3 Decision is Pure  Non-Sense and Can be Laughed At - They Even Admit it on Page 9 or Ruling


by Sundance, The Conservative Tree House, December 19, 2023

Three main points before getting to the substance. [213 page opinion HERE]

#1)  It was a 4-3 decision. Meaning it was the politics of the court, literally the political makeup and perspective therein, that determined the outcome of the decision.  This is showcased in point #3, which is the funniest part.

#2)  The entire framework of the case against Trump in the Colorado decision is predicated on this: “[the complainants] asserted that he was ineligible under Section Three because he engaged in insurrection on January 6, 2021, after swearing an oath as President to support the U.S. Constitution.”  [pdf, page 6 REMINDER – President Donald Trump was not charged with “insurrection,” is not accused of “insurrection,” does not fit the complaint under the definitions of “insurrection,” and has never been found guilty of insurrection.  The complaint is moot before the court.  But hey, it’s Lawfare… and we all know Lawfare is created for public media consumption, so that takes us directly to the biggest point.

#3)  Instead of me writing it, let me screengrab it so we can all laugh together [pdf page 9].

Wait, what?

Yes, that’s correct.  As long as President Trump appeals the decision to the Supreme Court, the appeals court stays their own ruling – essentially indefinitely.  The Colorado primary ballots printed, and the primary election will be over, before the Supreme Court puts this on their docket.

In addition to the virtual guarantee the high court will overrule this political nonsense, SCOTUS can make the entire issue moot before them by following their own normal schedule for submissions, arguments, deliberation and opinions delivered by the court.

The Colorado appellate court knows this, that’s why they put this self-stay into their 4-3 ruling.  It’s a politically correct way of giving the optics of telling their tribe, ‘hey we’re with you,’ without the ramifications of the political backlash.  In other words, psychological lawfare stuff – intended for media consumption.

Making the issue that much better for Donald Trump, the efforts of the Prescott-Bush clan (look it up – they live in CO) will backfire bigly.  The public backlash against a judicial ruling that interferes with the right of the citizens to determine their own election candidates plays perfectly into the sunlight operation against the Lawfare left.

This backlash will be epic, albeit hidden by MSNBC and the rest of the insufferable media.  Why? Because it doesn’t fit the Lawfare narrative.

I’m not even going to highlight the nonsense from the leftists who are in a frenzy over this one.  Just smile, pretend it’s the end of the world, eat your favorite foods and live your best life while trying not to laugh.  Seriously, this is just that level of goofy.
