In terms of politics, Donald Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he is a man who is in a unique position to overcome any obstacles.
A wave of court challenges that aim to remove Trump from the 2024 ballot by using the Fourteenth Amendment as leverage have emerged recently, amid what occasionally feels like a cyclone of legal attacks.
Whether his opponents want to acknowledge it or not, Trump is winning on both left and right, despite the mainstream media’s drool over the politicized cases.
The Trump campaign has strongly alleged that “dark money” has been funding these Fourteenth Amendment cases, which argue that Trump should be stripped from the ballot based on Section Three. The section prohibits someone from holding office if they have participated in an “insurrection” or a “rebellion.”
The organizations behind these lawsuits, “Free Speech For People” and “CREW,” which have filed complaints in Minnesota and Colorado, respectively, have been connected to Democratic benefactor George Soros.
The New York Times reports that Free Speech for People has also reportedly pressed the secretaries of state in Florida, New Mexico, Ohio, Wisconsin, and New Hampshire to remove Trump from the ballot for 2024 on the grounds that he violates the Fourteenth Amendment.
Regretfully, Donald Trump continues to do what he does best—win—which frustrates those who want him eliminated from the Republican primary and the general election in 2024.
President Trump recently prevailed in the North Star State against a Fourteenth Amendment lawsuit filed by Free Speech For People. The Minnesota Supreme Court rejected the case in early November, basically holding that they lacked the power to prevent Trump from being added to the ballot, according to a story from The Hill.
The president has won on this topic before, so this was a significant gain for him.
Judge James Redford of the Michigan Court of Claims rejected the argument that President Trump would not be allowed to run for office in 2024 due to his purported “role” in the events of January 6, 2021, handing anti-Trump enthusiasts yet another setback.
The judge in this instance also reasoned that Congress, not the particular state, should likely be in charge of making such a decision. Free Speech For People has pledged to challenge the ruling and has been involved in that case as well, according to the AP report.
However, the decision was a huge win for those who support free and fair election procedures.
At the request of New Hampshire Secretary of State David Scanlan, who said in September that he would not be using the Fourteenth Amendment to keep the president’s name off the early primary ballot, the Granite State gave Trump a significant victory.
Scanlan may schedule the primary and add Trump’s name on the ballot by using his exclusive power as Secretary of State, the AP reports.
Texas and the US Supreme Court
Early in October, Texas tax expert John Anthony Castro’s challenge to the Fourteenth Amendment was denied by the U.S. Supreme Court, giving President Trump a significant victory in the nation’s highest court.
Castro claimed that the so-called “insurrection” of January 6, 2021, was sufficient to exclude Trump from running for office, as RSBN has previously reported. However, the Supreme Court dismissed the case outright, concluding that Castro lacked capacity to suit the 45th president.
Shortly before the Supreme Court dismissed John Anthony Castro’s constitutional challenge to Trump’s nomination, a Florida court ruled that a private citizen lacked the legal standing to contest someone’s eligibility for public office.
Strangely enough, Sunshine State-based tax attorney Lawrence Caplan brought that lawsuit. Additionally, Caplan highlighted January 6, 2021, as the pivotal moment in Trump’s purported participation in a “insurrection.”
This week, Colorado had closing arguments over the potential use of the Fourteenth Amendment to prevent Trump from participating in the state’s election. The president is well-positioned to win another victory in the Centennial State while the verdict is still pending.
The case against Trump was brought by CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington), which adamantly claimed in court that Trump was an insurrectionist, according to the AP.
“Using lawfare to attack President Trump’s ballot access is Election Interference, and only happening because President Trump continues to poll so well against Crooked Joe Biden in traditionally blue states,” asserted Trump spokesman Steven Cheung recently.
