Series of quick blogs coming, likely will not be able to be posted in time, due to Blog Father’s well-deserved vacation.
So yesterday the State of Colorado’s Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that Donald Trump will not appear on the 2024 ballot for President in Colorado. This is a wild case of judicial misuse. Keep in mind all 7 judges are Democrat appointee’s so this isn’t a case of the “right” or “left” wing stacking a court, which Democrats love to pull.
Please note this from the dissenting opinion, “I have been involved in the justice system for thirty-three years now, and what took place here doesn’t resemble anything I’ve seen in a courtroom.”
Translation: the Democrats will rue this day.
The truth here is Donald Trump has virtually no chance of winning in Colorado against any Democrat. Why is the heck would the Democrats waste their capital on this? It is pointless, they will now have to spend more time and attention to defending this practice, as it will be appealed to the US Supreme Court.
Again, just to point out, 7 judges–all Democrat appointees–basically split on this one. 4-3. Again, it was a 4-3 decision. In a state where Trump will not win.
In today’s news it appears CA Secretary of State Shirley Weber wants to do the same thing. Our Attorney General and fellow brainless Democrat Rob Bonta appears ready to defend it all the way to the US Supreme Court. Again, in a state Trump will not and cannot win to begin with. Word has it at the press conference, Weber had to read off very large Kindergarten style cue cards and Rob Bonta immediately excused himself to the gender neutral (neutered?) bathroom to change his panties as the excitement from blocking a white male from a top job became too much for his body to handle.
Now for serious commentary.
Folk’s this is patently illegal. It will not take much but this will be overturned. Actually, I would not be stunned if the Supreme Court went 8-1 on this. It sets a very dangerous precedent. Think about it, what if a red state governor comes out and says, “Biden has had too many slips and falls, incoherent moments, etc. and by the power invested in me, he is henceforth banned from a ballot?” “Or a blue state governor says we cannot allow candidate ____ or ____ on the ballot because they are hostile to; trans, LBGTQ, business, abortion, churches, etc.?” This would be opening Pandora’s box like never before.
Is this the type of world we want to live in? A hyper-partisan society where a sole and single leader aka a dictator or ruling family decides who can and cannot run?
Here is a novel concept…let Donald Trump run. He won’t win either state, not even a meteor killing all Democrats and decline to states as the dead vote in far bigger numbers for the Democrat than the Republican. He won’t win there.
Donald is a very flawed person, and a flawed candidate. Regardless of your thoughts on stolen elections, the January 6th thing was not a pretty sight. Donald is a polarizing figure as we have pointed out here, even against a very bad Joe Biden, Trump is up just a few points. Let the election play out and you may just beat Trump twice!
While folks like William and the staff here have soured on Trump, imagine the rank and file? However, when Democrats pull this crap on Trump, they are saying that we are next. Trump is cast once again as an outsider and a threat to the Elites. This causes us to rally around Trump. Were they to ignore Trump during the last three years, DeSantis would be leading the pack by 30 points.
To the Democrats who think this extra-legal political persecution is a good idea: Think about groups who get upset when they are excluded from things for no reason. Black People, Asian people, Hispanic people, Jews, Palestinians are some that quickly come to mind. They do not like being excluded, restricted, charged with crimes, perp walked, mug shotted, etc. yet you are doing this very thing. Trump would likely be getting molly-whopped in the primary, yet you continue to indict and convict without even a trial! I have a feeling if someone actually could break down the polling for Trump, he is going to get a record high number of “non-white” groups for a Republican. I doubt many of the above-mentioned groups feel like Trump is getting a fair shake.
Watch Trumps’s poll numbers next week. I bet he picks up another 2-4% lead on Biden in the polls.
Again, if you hate Trump, let the election play out and should he prevail then beat him in the General Election fair and square. The fact is Democrats can’t trust voters to agree with them and thus must deploy every dirty trick and political gambit they can think of.
FYI: I feel the same about rumblings in Texas that Biden should not be allowed on the ballot due to his failure to fix the border. Knock it off.
This is so funny because when I was in school, I remember the USA and allies calling rigged elections out in North Korea, Russia, China, and various South American, and African nations for doing this same thing. Now that we are a third-world country, I guess it’s, ok? Wow. That’s something.
