If you thought the United States was safe from another rigged election, think again. On Tuesday, the Colorado Supreme Court REMOVED the leading presidential candidate from the ballot using an obscure constitutional precedent from the Civil War.
Declaring that former President Donald Trump is “disqualified from holding office of the President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment,” which prohibits anyone from holding office if they “have engaged in insurrection or rebellion,” Colorado is taking action against a man against whom none of that statement has been proven.
Democrats have been using the word “insurrection” on purpose for a time such as this. Of course, nothing of the sort has ever been proven against the former president, but that is not stopping the desperate liberals who see that the Biden campaign is dead in the water and Trump is soaring in the polls.

The Colorado court was split on the vote, 4 to 3.
Trump is not, however, taking this lying down. He responded immediately on social media.
After delivering a speech in Waterloo, Iowa, Trump began a blizzard of Truth Social posts related to the Colorado decision, reposting others’ comments and adding his own.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham saying, “Tonight, America is seeing the ultimate—in ELECTION INTERFERENCE.”
Trump quoted another Fox News clip, writing, “IT IS NOT GOOD FOR OUR COUNTRY, AT ALL…” and “They don’t want the voters to decide this…there is obviously this deep fear of Donald Trump potentially winning the White House back…”
Gregg Jarrett: “This is ELECTION RIGGING…This is an effort, make no mistake, to deprive American voters of their right to make the decision as to who should be president. It is anti-democratic. It’s the equivalent of rigging the ballot box.”
Charlie Hurt: “Democrats in Colorado are so afraid of allowing American voters to vote and pick the next president they are willing to do extra-judicial things, in order to thwart the people’s choice from being on the ballot.
To them, preserving democracy requires destroying democracy.”
Above a lengthy Jesse Watters clip, Trump noted “ELECTION INTERFERENCE!”
And, much to the point, Jonathan Turley: “This country is a powder keg and this court is just throwing matches at it… for people that say they are trying to protect democracy, this is hands down the most anti-democratic opinion I’ve seen in my lifetime.”
The Trump campaign announced on Tuesday that it would appeal the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to keep Trump off the ballot.

“The Colorado Supreme Court issued a completely flawed decision tonight and we will swiftly file an appeal to the United States Supreme Court and a concurrent request for a stay of this deeply undemocratic decision,” said a campaign spokesperson. “We have full confidence that the U.S. Supreme Court will quickly rule in our favor and finally put an end to these unAmerican lawsuits.”
Liberal media, of course, reported positively about the state’s decision to compare former President Trump to the Confederacy and to the spirit of the constitutional law.
CNN senior legal analyst Elie Honig reacted to the news that former President Donald Trump had been booted from the ballot in Colorado on Tuesday, calling the ruling “a historic decision.”
Honig told Wolf Blitzer.”This is a historic decision. It’s a momentous decision.”
As the Supreme Court itself says, they are in uncharted territory here, but it’s really important to keep in mind, this is not the last word here. This is almost certainly going up to the U.S. Supreme Court, which can review the decisions of a state supreme court. In fact, the Colorado Supreme Court anticipates that possibility, and for that reason, they put their own ruling on hold until January 4th, anticipating that it will go up to the Supreme Court.
The practical consequence as it stands at this moment, though, is that Donald Trump will not be on the Colorado ballot in the race for president in 2024. The Supreme Court will almost certainly take this up. It’s also important to keep in mind that, in the broader context, there have been dozens of these challenges filed across the country, and 18 or so of them have either failed, been rejected, or been withdrawn by the plaintiff, so this is really an outlier.
Honig concluded, “The Supreme Court is going to have the final say. The consequences here are, of course, enormous.”
The Supreme Court will indeed have the final say on a state’s decision for the voters who should be on a presidential ballot, especially according to the law cited.
Although trailing far behind President Trump in polls, contender Vivek Ramaswamy has also immediately reacted to Colorado’s anti-American move by declaring that he will withdraw his name from the Colorado ballot if the decision is not reversed.
Ramaswamy has also called out his fellow Republican hopefuls, demanding that Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, and Chris Christie follow his lead.”Or else they are tacitly endorsing this illegal maneuver, which will have disastrous consequences for our country.”
