Once again, we find a hyper-partisan court ignoring underlying facts to produce a political ruling.
A narrowly divided (4-3) Colorado Supreme Court has declared former President Donald Trump ineligible for the White House under the U.S. Constitution’s Civil War-era 14th Amendment’s insurrection clause and ordered that his name be removed from the state’s presidential primary ballot. In their ruling, the Court found that President Trump did foment an insurrection by encouraging the chaos that delayed the counting of the Electoral College votes on Jan. 6, 2021.
From the Court ruling…
2023 CO 63 - ADVANCE SHEET HEADNOTE - December 19, 2023
No. 23SA300, Anderson v. Griswold - Election Law- Fourteenth Amendment First Amendment- Political Questions- Hearsay.
In this appeal from a district court proceeding under the Colorado Election Code, supreme court considers whether former President Donald J. Trump may appear on the Colorado Republican presidential primary ballot in 2024. A majority of the court holds that President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to theUnited States Constitution. Because he is disqualified, it would be a wrongful act under the Election Code for the Colorado Secretary of State to list him as a candidate on the presidential primary ballot. The court stays its ruling until January 4, 2024, subject to any further appellate proceedings.
The district court did not abuse its discretion in admitting portions of Congress’s January 6 Report into evidence at trial.
The district court did not err in concluding that the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, constituted an “insurrection.”
The district court did not err in concluding that President Trump “engaged in” that insurrection through his personal actions.
President Trump’s speech inciting the crowd that breached the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, was not protected by the First Amendment.
The Colorado GOP’s response…
While States hold considerable power in determining the rules for all elections that happen within their borders, primary election rules are mostly a party function to determine its eligible candidates for a general election.
Colorado GOP says it will cancel primary if Trump can’t be on ballot
The Colorado Republican Party said Tuesday that it will cancel its presidential primary and instead hold a caucus if a court ruling stands denying former President Donald Trump a place on the ballot.
The party made the vow on social media platform X hours after the state Supreme Court ruled that Mr. Trump engaged in an insurrection surrounding the 2020 election and disqualified himself from the primary next year.
The state GOP said if that ruling isn’t overturned on appeal, the party would “convert to a pure caucus system” in order to pick its nominee, thus avoiding the primary ballot issue altogether. <Source>
The progressive communist democrats celebrate…
- Woohoo! Trump barred from running in Colorado! I'm doing another happy dance. We don't need insurrectionists running for office. They need to work from within to make the changes they believe in.
- holy fucking shit, the Colorado Supreme Court just threw Donald Trump off their state's 2024 ballot for being a fucking insurrectionist. Christmas came a week early
FINALLY the orange MFer is disqualified in Colorado. Finally ghat dammit. Supreme Court. It literally took yt folks 3 yrs to find what we all saw on tv!! Fck !
For once, I’m actually interested in what the orange sack of crap has to say over on truth social
Those who loudly proclaim they are saving democracy from a Hitlerian Trump are doing what they always do – project their behavior onto the opposition, knowing that the progressive propagandists in the media will ignore the news and stick with the narrative.
We are so screwed. Once by the progressive communist democrats. And, again, by the progressive propagandists.
It is becoming obvious that Trump is the answer to saving the nation.
