With the way America’s legal system is going, it wouldn’t be a surprise if far-left groups were successful in their bid to keep Donald Trump off 2024 presidential ballots if he were to run.
Secretaries of state, districts attorney, and other high-ranking state officials have taken a giant swerve to the left after nearly two years of insidious progressive influence. The ‘defund the police’ movement played a major role in the disintegration of state legal systems and Trump could, unfortunately, bare the brunt of it.
State officials showed their true colors in 2020 when it became apparent they would do nothing about the numerous credible instances of voter fraud — that’s when Trump began taking notice something was seriously wrong.
Now, the same state officials are being lobbied to keep Former President Donald Trump off the 2024 presidential ballot by far-left groups connected to socialist lawmaker Bernie Sanders.
The groups Free Speech For People and Our Revolution have begun urging secretaries of state to sign declarations barring Donald Trump from ever appearing on the 2024 ballots. They claim Trump’s role in the Jan. 6 protest, which they deem an “insurrection”, disqualifies him from ever seeking another White House bid.
Side note: Our Revolution was founded by Bernie Sanders after his failed 2016 presidential bid.
These left-wing groups argue that the Former President violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which states those who have taken an oath of office who subsequently engage in “insurrection or rebellion” must be barred from office.
That’s fine, but when exactly did Donald Trump engage in an insurrection or rebellion against the United States? It’s almost as if the left has a constant loop of lies supported by evidence published by liberal “news” outlets.
Donald Trump urged his disgruntled supporters to engage in peaceful and patriotic protest stemming from the stolen 2020 election, which Trump obviously won by a landslide.
“Secretaries of State have a duty to ensure that candidates who seek to appear on their state ballots meet the constitutional qualifications for serving in public office,” Alexandra Flores-Quilty, the campaign director for Free Speech For People, said in a statement.
Joseph Geevarghese, executive director of Our Revolution, said in a statement, “Trump is plotting a return to power, and we’re not wasting any time putting the overwhelming evidence into action.”
The groups said the effort is the newest initiative of the 14point3 campaign, a national project they said will also mobilize grassroots supporters to urge their secretaries of state to sign the declaration, and 50,000 people have signed thus far.
The declaration will urge secretaries of state to qualify the events of Jan. 6 worthy of an insurrection against the U.S.
Without being formally charged and convicted with an insurrection against the United States, how do these left-wing groups actually believe they will convince secretaries of state to sign off?
Just another fanciful waste of time by Trump-hating leftists! Stay mad!
