In the left’s latest politically motivated, spectacularly pathetic, desperate, and brazen tyrannical attempt to remove President Trump from the 2024 Presidential Ballot, a suit was brought in Colorado by an organization named Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, otherwise referred to as CREW, which is, predictably so, being supported and funded by none other than Deep-State Democrat operative and ringleader George Soros. The group is quite literally maintaining and promulgating an absurd notion or supposition as fact, in that their prejudicial accusation or, rather, their altogether unjustified subjective OPINION that Trump is somehow an “insurrectionist" due to not only a metaphorical word, not to mention the actions of others, but, you know, also under their imaginary United States Constitution of Never Never Land and Pixie Dust Laws, and therefore is sufficient cause or grounds to purge and expel him from the ballot and, in so doing, permanently bar him from ever running for or seeking higher office, but of course, it is unequivocally a resounding NOT SO, a LIE concocted out of pure hatred.
In fact, this politically motivated malign endeavor is entirely Unconstitutional and tantamount to nullifying and abolishing the United States Constitution from our judicial system and judicial process, in what is nothing more than a perverse and insidious bid to strip away the 5th Amendment's Due Process Rights, which is precisely why, in two separate cases, brought in the states of Texas and the state of Florida, and under the same argument or pretext, and with the same intent to strip Trump from the ballot, in fact, failed miserably; ultimately, effectively, and rightfully so being thrown out and/or rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court and a Florida State Court, respectively.
You see, rather than fighting to win over the support of the American electorate, Democrats are instead scrambling to disqualify Joe Biden’s political opponent, Donald Trump, from the ballot through left-wing Establishment operatives and activists in our judicial system.
Indeed, and at the risk of sounding like a progressive parrot or a progressively broken record stuck on replay, these unpatriotic Democrats, unlike Constitutional Conservative Republicans, are, in actual fact, deliberately attempting to “usurp democracy,” abuse the United States Constitution, and destroy the will of the people and any semblance of what is supposed to be the principle of “Free & Fair Elections” in this the United States “Constitutional Republic” of America.
CREW is attempting to argue the case that because President Trump used the word “fight” in his January 6th speech on the ellipse, that he was, therefore, in effect inciting an insurrection, even though he was, in fact, clearly and conclusively using the word in a metaphorical sense, like, for example, “fight for your life” or “fight like hell,” which, and as strange as it may seem, the left-wing, raving, raging Trump-hating Coloradan activist judge in this case, Sarah Wallace, had to begrudgingly concede was denoted or meant in figurative and not literal terms, and why? Well, owing to the fact that President Trump’s attorneys presented her with irrefutable video evidence demonstrating that not only President Trump but, in fact, Democrat politicians themselves have a propensity to use the word “fight” or the phrase “fight like hell” rather loosely and frequently in political discourse —in truth, all politicians do, whether they be former Democrat and/or Republican Presidents & Vice Presidents, whether they be Judges and/or progressive prosecutors, or whether they be bureaucratic directors of our three-letter agencies; the inescapable fact of the matter is, they all use it, whether elected, unelected, and/or appointed or anointed, like, say, Joe Biden was.
Take, for example, California Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell, who happens to be deeply invested in this and other suits, or rather schemes and plots to have President Trump scratched from the 2024 Presidential Ballot, had and has himself also used the word “fight” numerous times in numerous tweets, but of course, that’s not enough to dissuade these Deep-State Establishment backed and funded lunatics in organizations like CREW. Oh no, in fact, nothing is, at least, not while their hatred for Trump supersedes their allegiance to and respect for the Constitution, Constitutional and Statutory law, integrity, truth, and their love of country. So, instead of a mea culpa, left-wing prosecutors proffered the notion that because President Trump used the word “fight” 20 different times in his speech and used “peacefully & patriotically march to the Capitol and make your voices heard” only once, that he was, therefore, somehow, or at least in their twisted or rather deliberately manipulated logic, encouraging violence. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is their whole premise, their imagined grounds or rather fantastical fictitious excuse for this lawsuit to unconstitutionally remove President Trump from the ballot… because he used a metaphorical phrase or word in a speech several times.
Unfortunately for this lot of intolerable, pretentious, Machiavellian jackasses and jerks, they don’t get to declare that Trump, or anyone else for that matter, is an insurrectionist simply because they do not like him, them, or their choice of words; that is not how our Constitutional system works. President Trump has not even been charged with insurrection under 18 USC 2383, let alone convicted of it, nor has anyone else, for that matter, not now, not in the entire storied history of this country, not once, not ever! Yet Democrats, of course, propped up by the left-wing media, evidently believe that they can usurp the Constitution, bypass the United States Supreme Court, and make Trump the first, and as if that was not fantastical enough for you, they also apparently believe that if they succeed in scrubbing Trump from the ballot in Colorado, that such a ruling would, therefore, be in effect, “self-enforcing” in that Trump will subsequently be stripped from the ballot in all 50 states as a consequence, but of course, as pitiful and pathetic as that outlandish belief is, that is all it is, a belief, mere wishful thinking on their part that is neither grounded in law nor reality because there is no such Constitutional or statutory legal basis for or term as “self-enforcing;” sure, I suppose it sounds good to the unwitting and the Constitutionally illiterate, but it’s not applicable, let alone real… it means absolutely nothing!
However, that said, Judge Sarah Wallace is, in all conceivable likelihood, going to rule to have Trump scrubbed from the Colorado ballot irrespective of the Constitution, particularly in light of her far left ideological affiliations and financial contributions to certain ActBlue efforts to have not only President Trump but also Trump-supporting candidates removed from the ballot in Colorado, but here’s the thing, as entirely frustrating, and as infuriating, and as un-American as that may or in all probability will be, such a ruling would not and DOES NOT matter in the grand scheme of things, not one bit, not even a smidgen or scintilla because this case as with the other cases or rather insidious plots to remove Trump from the ballot will immediately be appealed, of course, first to the appellate courts, which could go either way depending on the political ideological makeup of the bench, but ultimately, such a ruling would and will be struck down, flipped, turned on its head, and thrown out with yesterday’s garbage once it reaches the United States Supreme Court because it is not only an egregious violation of but an affront to and attack on our fundamental core Constitutional principles and values as a nation. There is absolutely no way on this God-given-earth that the United States Supreme Court, at least, not in its current form or configuration, with six Constitutional Conservative Justices and three Lefties, could, would, or will ever uphold such a Unconstitutional, Communist ruling.
What these conniving ignoramuses fail to comprehend, what they can’t seem to grasp or wrap around their wicked little minds, is that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment can not under any circumstances stand alone or be enforced without Section 5 of the 14th Amendment. In other words, facts, or actually, in this case, laws beyond or outside of the left's manipulated narrative, their communist silo, and ravings about Section 3 of the 14th Amendment can not be ignored or discounted simply because they do not fit the left's electioneering narrative or support their insidious plot to remove Trump from the ballot. You see, and as inconvenient as it may be for Democrats, under the Constitution, you know, the Supreme Law of the Land, Congress and ONLY Congress can, did, and has the absolute sole authority to pass legislation, a criminal statute under section 5 in order to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment; legislation that, by the way, Trump was not, is not, and can not be charged under, not by some left-wing activist State Judge, like Sarah Wallace, not by some progressive prosecutor, and most certainly not by some George Soros or Mark Zuckerberg funded Secretary of State in Colorado, in Minnesota, or in any other state, county, or district in our union for that matter, and why? Well, for a number of reasons, but not the least of which is the most patently obvious, in that, and not to put too fine a point on it, Section 3 of the 14th Amendment does NOT apply to the President or Vice President of the United States, ergo it does not apply to President Trump… Capeesh!
You can have all the howling, hooting, hollering, yapping, and yodeling you want from Democrats, Rinos, the left-wing state-run-media, and their moronic pundits mouthing off about insurrection; who cares; it means nothing! I mean, sure, their unconstitutional conduct can be mildly irritating, even infuriating at times, and is without question altogether grossly unjustified, and yes, they are wasting taxpayer dollars, but okay, well, not OKAY, but since when have politicians ever cared about our feelings or spending and wasting our tax dollars… I would say, since about half past never, particularly owing to the incontrovertible fact that a conscience is not an attribute readily found in the soulless souls of the ruling class, but nevertheless, I digress, it still doesn’t amount to a hill of beans. It means absolutely nothing because, again, 1) neither Trump nor anyone else has been charged or convicted under this statute, 2) you can not remove a candidate from the ballot without a conviction under this statute, and 3) you can not convict someone under this statute without a charge, and 3) you can not charge someone under a statute that does not apply to them!
Former federal appellate court judge on Denver’s 10th Circuit and currently Stanford Law professor Michael McConnell, who is quite frankly no fan of Trump, wrote earlier this year:
“It is significant that the Department of Justice has prosecuted hundreds of persons for their involvement in the January 6 incursion at the Capitol, but has not charged anyone, including Trump, with insurrection under this or any other statute. It is not obvious that partisan officials in state governments, without specific authorization or checks and balances, should apply broad and uncertain definitions to decide who can run for office in a republic, when responsible officials with clear statutory and constitutional authority have not done so.”
If you read the text, the language of Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, it does not state, let alone infer anything even remotely relevant, related, or close to what Democrats are claiming and arguing in court in their desperate effort to remove Trump from the ballot; in fact, as I mentioned several times before, it doesn't even apply to the Presidency. It states, and I quote: “No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.” —Indeed, it quite literally mentions everyone in government but the President and/or Vice President, and no, “elector of President and Vice President” is not the President and/or Vice President. Now I realize that more often than not, logic and reason has a peculiar habit of going out the windows, doors, and chimneys when that choking sensation or plume of desperation sets in, particularly when it comes to those blighted with Trump Derangement Syndrome; however, stretching, twisting, and manipulating the 14th Amendment to fit the Deep-State Establishment narrative will not pass the smell test in the United States Supreme Court. Indeed, Democrats would need an Article V Convention of States to make that happen. No matter how many which or what ways to Sunday that Democrats plot to slice, splice, dice, or mince it, not one word or phrase in that concise, compound-complex clause that is section 3 of the 14th Amendment applies to the President or the office of the Presidency, notwithstanding the obvious that, again, not one person has ever been convicted, much less charged with insurrection, not one; there is no precedent.
And so you see, they can line up all the left-wing CNN and MSNBC supposed Constitutional scholars, who, by the way, never seem to get it right, all the pundits, all the talking-heads, and all of the Establishment career politicians, operatives, and activist judges and partisan prosecutors that they want; it does NOT matter because section 5 of the 14th Amendment clearly states that, and I quote: “The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.” i.e., the provisions in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. And as I said, Congress created that legislation, a criminal statute, but oh dear, again, not one court has ever charged a single person with it, not one, NOT EVER, and nor can they charge or convict President Trump with or of it either, of course, they can try just as they are attempting to do in Colorado, Washington and elsewhere, but in the end, it will ultimately fail upon appeal to the United States Supreme Court. You simply can NOT charge, let alone convict someone of insurrection for not only the aforementioned reasons outlined throughout this article but also for exercising their First Amendment Rights, which includes the use of metaphorical words, which is not evidence of inciting violence much less insurrection, no matter how many times it is uttered, echoed, whispered, yelled, yodeled or written, and if it were, every single left-wing career politician, judge, prosecutor, bureaucrat, activist, operative, and journalist in the country, whether in Washington DC or on the airwaves from Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, mad Maxine Waters, Joe Scarborough, Joyless Joy Reid, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, not to mention the Democrats darling and leader of the jihad squad, AOC, or as I prefer to call her, Alexandria Occasional Cortex, and, of course, let’s not forget her intifada sisters, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, to name but a few, would, in fact, all be in prison for multiple life sentences because, you know, and at the risk of sounding like Captain Obvious, they have all used the word fight over and over and over again, possibly far worse, more often, and in a literal sense.
Indeed, maybe President Trump should have used the word “jihad” because, you know, Democrats unabashedly maintain that it means “struggle” rather than the “slaughter” of innocent non-Muslim nonbelievers, otherwise referred to as infidels, i.e., us!
