Liberals all across the state of Colorado and the United States blew smoke out of their ears after it was revealed by Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold that former President Donald Trump’s name would remain on the Republican Party primary ballot “unless the U.S. Supreme Court declines to take the case or otherwise affirms the Colorado Supreme Court ruling.”
On Thursday, the Colorado GOP asked the U.S. high court to look into the 14th Amendment issues raised against Trump after the state Supreme Court ruled that he was officially disqualified from being on the ballot due to being in violation of Section 3 of the amendment. This, of course, is hogwash and is nothing more than the Colorado Supreme Court being weaponized to take out President Joe Biden’s biggest political opposition ahead of the general election next year.
“For the first time in American history, a former President has been disqualified from the ballot, a political party has been denied the opportunity to put forward the presidential candidate of its choice, and the voters have been denied the ability to choose their Chief Executive through the electoral process,” the party’s writ of certiorari, a petition to the high court asking it to take a look at the case, went on to say.
Here’s more from Newsmax:
The Supreme Court does not have any set timeline for when or if it must take up the case, but Griswold called on the justices to “act quickly.”
“Donald Trump engaged in insurrection and was disqualified under the Constitution from the Colorado Ballot,” Griswold wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“The Colorado Supreme Court got it right. This decision is now being appealed. I urge the U.S. Supreme Court to act quickly given the upcoming presidential primary election.”
The fine liberal folks — sarcasm, people, sarcasm — from the Washington Post said, “Trump is far ahead in the race for the Republican nomination, but his candidacy would be endangered if other states also kept him off the ballot. The former president has called the Colorado ruling a form of election interference, while his opponents have argued that he is responsible for putting himself at risk of being taken out of the running.”
Justices on the bench of the state’s highest court decided to put the decision they reached on Dec. 19 on hold until Jan. 4 and revealed they would then keep that hold in tact if an appeal were to be filed. By going ahead and filing the appeal, the GOP in Colorado is getting the former president back on the ballot where he belongs.
