SCOTUS: Trump Can’t Be Kicked Off State Ballots

SCOTUS- Trump Can't Be Kicked Off State Ballots - Encounter Today - Blog

The Supreme Court has unanimously rejected Colorado’s Supreme Court which sought to remove President Trump from the ballot. The decision serves as a rebuke to the states who’ve tried to remove President Trump from their state ballots.

President Trump took to Truth Social after the US Supreme Court ruling stating the the decision was a “big win for America.”

This reversal of the Colorado Supreme Court’s removal of President Trump from the ballot upheld the democratic process. Despite this, some have already begun saying this ruling is reason enough to reform and/or dissolve the Supreme Court – this is nonsensical.

The Court isn’t broken nor was their ruling politically motivated. Colorado’s Supreme Court decision to remove President Trump from the ballot was a politically motivated ruling that should never have been made in the first place and was brutally flawed from the beginning.

No state gets to make decisions which impact other states, let alone all states. What Colorado tried to do was deny Americans the ability to vote for the candidate they wanted. What people should be upset about is A. Colorado’s Court ruling being unconstitutional and B. that time, money and resources were wasted in a frivolous, petty pursuit.

Hilariously, even guests on the radical leftist channel of CNN couldn’t disagree with the court’s decision saying, “Unfortunately for America, the court isn’t necessarily wrong.”

The law firm representing the former President also came out with a statement on the ruling:

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold stated she was “disappointed” in the decision, calling Trump an “oath-breaking insurrectionist,” a term used by justices in a concurring opinion on the case.

“I am disappointed in the US Supreme Court’s decision stripping states of the authority to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment for federal candidates. Colorado should be able to bar oath-breaking insurrections from our ballot,” Griswold wrote.

The concurring opinion was written by Justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Jackson, who wrote that “In this case, the Court must decide whether Colorado may keep a Presidential candidate off the ballot on the ground that he is an oathbreaking insurrectionist and thus disqualified from holding federal office under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

“Allowing Colorado to do so would, we agree, create a chaotic-state-by-state patchwork, at odds with our Nation’s federalism principles. That is enough to resolve this case.”

“Today, the majority goes beyond the necessities of this case to limit how Section 3 can bar an oathbreaking insurrectionist from becoming President. Although we agree that Colorado cannot enforce Section 3, we protest the majority’s effort to use this case to define the limits of federal enforcement of that provision. Because we would decide only the issue before us, we concur only in the judgment,” the concurring opinion concluded.

In the opinion, the court wrote that “because the Constitution makes Congress, rather than the States, responsible for enforcing Section 3 against federal officeholders and candidates, we reverse” the Colorado Supreme Court’s ruling to keep Trump off the ballot.

In February, Griswold stated that “States like Colorado believe that it is confusing and potentially suppressive to put a candidate on a ballot who cannot assume office… We kept Donald Trump off because he is disqualified, from our perspective, under the Constitution for being an oath-breaking insurrectionist.”

For a long time in America, there have been three predominant political classes: the conservatives, the “progressives” and the centrists but today, we now see the emergence of a fourth group that has been lurking under the surface – communists. This group of individuals want to tear down the governing structures due to their ineffectiveness to achieve that which the commies want, this is a group to keep a watchful eye on.

Whilst there are many people in America who hold to the burndown rhetoric who aren’t well known, one individual who is more prominent is Keith Olbermann who came out with quite possibly the most Communistic thing one could say in such a moment:

For those who believe there are “authoritarians” sitting on the Supreme Court trying to undermine democracy and thwart the will of the people and thus, the structure should be “dissolved”, they need only look at the political hacks who initiated the cases that made it all the way to the highest court in the land.
