Obligatory: SCOTUS Says States Cannot Remove Trump From Ballot

This has made the liberals with Trump Derangement Syndrome very upset, because allowing citizens to vote for someone they don’t like is destroying Democracy or something. Oh, and it took the AP a lot of paragraphs to note that this was a unanimous 9-0 vote

Supreme Court restores Trump to ballot, rejecting state attempts to ban him over Capitol attack

The Supreme Court on Monday unanimously restored Donald Trump to 2024 presidential primary ballots, rejecting state attempts to ban the Republican former president over the Capitol riot.

The justices ruled a day before the Super Tuesday primaries that states cannot invoke a post-Civil War constitutional provision to keep presidential candidates from appearing on ballots. That power resides with Congress, the court wrote in an unsigned opinion.

Trump posted on his social media network shortly after the decision was released: “BIG WIN FOR AMERICA!!!”

The outcome ends efforts in ColoradoIllinoisMaine and elsewhere to kick Trump, the front-runner for his party’s nomination, off the ballot because of his attempts to undo his loss in the 2020 election to Democrat Joe Biden, culminating in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.

I wonder how Democrats would react if Republicans states attempted to remove Biden from the ballot, since he’s violating his oath of office, particularly regarding immigration. Oh, and saying that if he’s too mentally incompetent to stand trial he’s too incompetent to be president

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold expressed disappointment in the court’s decision as she acknowledged that “Donald Trump is an eligible candidate on Colorado’s 2024 Presidential Primary.”

She wined a lot of Twitter, upset that citizens would actually be allowed to vote for their preferred candidate. And federally elected Democrats are melting down

    As is the case with most court reporting, the headlines are often wrong as well as the analysis. Most “journalists” focus on the outcome, not the actual decision. For the majority of leftist anti-Trumpers who pretend to be journalists, the outcome is “Trump can be on the ballot”. But the real decision is that the states do not have the authority to enforce the 14th amendment, only Congress does. Therefore, the states could still disqualify Trump for other conditions. For example, they could simply declare that he is not a natural born citizen or that he is under 35 years of age. Both of those would be factually untrue but then so were all the accusations of fraud, rape, insurrection, election interference, Russian collusion, whatever they impeached him for and RICO violations. Since the Democratic party standard is just to make stuff up and shout it over and over as if it is true, then get some judge to issue an order to “make it true”, any excuse is as good as any other. It shouldn’t be too hard to declare that Trump does not meet residency requirements to run as a Florida resident since Democrats can claim that Mar A Lago is a “temporary” or “zoned commercial” real estate, so Trump doesn’t legally “live” there. It is not a stretch for Democrats to find a judge willing to sign her name to a decree that Trump is really only 33 years old because he is really a dog and that is how old he is in dog years.

    The Court stuck to their proper role of interpreting the law in context of the constitution and not deciding the merits of factual evidence. So there was no determination made of Trump’s actual status as an insurrectionist, of even if anything remotely like an insurrection has taken place since 1861.
