Trump Wins Colorado Case – No Insurrection, He’ll Be on the Ballot

A leftwing District Court Judge in Colorado has ruled that the Insurrection Clause of the 14th Amendment does not apply to presidents. That is the correct ruling according to many legal experts, so the effort to prevent President Donald Trump from appearing on the ballot next year has failed once again.

Judge Sarah Wallace still adamantly believes that January 6th was an insurrection. She’s even donated money to a radical left-wing organization that is trying to prevent January 6 protesters from running for Congress (even though none of them have been charged with insurrection either).

Wallace noted in her ruling about the Insurrection Clause, “Section Three explicitly lists all federal elected positions except the President and Vice President.”

Why would the people draft the 14th Amendment, which was clearly aimed at preventing Confederate soldiers from holding seats in Congress, including the President or the Vice President? There were sitting Members of Congress who fought for the Confederacy against the US government. The Insurrection clause, technically, was only aimed at those specific people.

Even if you wanted to say it included people who didn’t fight for the Confederacy, it still wouldn’t apply to the President or Vice President. As the courts have ruled time and time again (including the US Supreme Court), presidents and vice presidents are not “officers” of the government.

So, yet another attempt to keep Donald Trump off the ballot in 2024 goes up in flames. The New Hampshire Secretary of State has ruled that the 14th Amendment can’t keep Trump off the ballot in that state. The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled the same thing last week. A federal judge in Florida ruled the same way in September, and the Supreme Court upheld that decision.

Give it up, liberals. Trump’s going to be on the ballot. He’s going to have the Republican nomination wrapped up by about March. And then he’s going to win in November.
