The Russian-collusion hoax, impeachment, and four criminal indictments all failed to end Donald Trump’s political career.
But with polls showing Donald Trump defeating Joe Biden, the Left launched a desperate Hail Mary attempt to ban him from running for President.
And now a judge handed down this bombshell ruling about kicking Trump off the ballot in 2024.
Trump’s critics claim that they are defenders of democracy.
But they are terrified of letting democracy play out and allowing the voters to decide if they want Trump as their President.
Instead, law professors like Lawrence Tribe and former judges like Michael Luttig are allowing their hatred for Trump to cause them to suffer from brain worms.
Luttig and Tribe are among the so-called “scholars” promoting a fringe legal theory that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment allows states to remove Trump from the ballot since it bars anyone engaged in an “insurrection” or “rebellion” against the U.S. government from ever holding office again.
Congress passed this Amendment after the Civil War and terms like “insurrection” and “rebellion” had a very specific meaning, unlike today where the media casually throws that term around to falsely describe what happened on January 6.
This was the latest in a string of novel legal theories – all the indictments against Trump rely on novel legal theories cooked up by partisan prosecutors – dreamed up by Democrats to deny the American people the right to decide Trump’s fate at the ballot box.
A group of Democrats in Florida put this legal theory to the test by filing suit to disqualify Trump from the ballot.
U.S. District Judge Robin L. Rosenberg rejected this nonsense challenge, ruling that as voters they did not have standing to bring this case.
Judge Rosenberg wrote that “an individual citizen does not have standing to challenge whether another individual is qualified to hold public office.”
Judge Rosenberg added that “the Court concludes that it lacks subject matter jurisdiction and dismisses the Complaint.”
But this will not be the final word on this matter.
Democrat Secretaries of State in critical 2024 battlegrounds continue to toy with the idea of banning Trump from the ballot.
“I’m talking every day with colleagues about this,” Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said in an interview with ABC News. “So, I think the public needs to be prepared for this to be an ongoing issue, that is, it has several resolution points and evolution points throughout the cycle.”
Another legal challenge could come from one of Trump’s Republican rivals.
A Never-Trump lawyer named Steven Calabresi argued that a challenger like Chris Christie could file suit.
Never-Trump RINO former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson sounded like he could travel down that path.
At the first GOP debate, Hutchinson claimed Trump was “morally disqualified from being President again as a result of what happened on Jan. 6th.”
Hutchinson added that “conservative legal scholars” argue the 14th Amendment disqualified Trump “as a result of the insurrection.”
There will be more legal challenges and the Supreme Court will likely have to weigh in.
But what is clear is that Trump’s opponents are continually cooking up new schemes to stop him from becoming President because they do not trust democracy and are fearful he will win if they let the voters decide.
