Supreme Court Agrees To Hear Trump’s Appeal Of Decision Removing Him From Colorado Ballot

The Supreme Court agreed to hear former President Donald Trump’s appeal to the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to kick him off the state’s ballot.

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Dec. 19 that Trump is ineligible to be on the state’s primary ballot under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. The Supreme Court set oral arguments to consider Trump’s appeal for Feb. 8, 2024.

Trump appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court on Wednesday. The Colorado Republican Party previously filed a separate appeal Dec. 27.

“The question of eligibility to serve as President of the United States is properly reserved for Congress, not the state courts, to consider and decide,” Trump’s petition stated. “By considering the question of President Trump’s eligibility and barring him from the ballot, the Colorado Supreme Court arrogated Congress’ authority.”

Section 3 of the 14th Amendment prevents individuals who took an oath to the Constitution and then engaged in insurrection from holding office.

Trump’s brief, along with any other friend-of-the-court briefs, must be filed by Jan. 18. The respondent’s brief is due by Jan. 31, and Trump’s reply brief is due by Feb. 5, according to the Court’s order.

Twenty-seven states filed an amicus brief Friday urging the Supreme Court to reverse the Colorado ruling.

The Colorado Supreme Court acknowledged that they traveled in “uncharted territory” when it issued the decision in December.

“The sum of these parts is this: President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three; because he is disqualified, it would be a wrongful act under the Election Code for the Secretary to list him as a candidate on the presidential primary ballot,” the Colorado Supreme Court wrote in its opinon.

Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows also issued a ruling Dec. 28 finding Trump was ineligible to appear on the state’s ballot, which he appealed Tuesday.

Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This is the Best Piece of Evidence That Trump Can Win in 2024

The more Democrats and their supporters attack, persecute and indict President Donald J. Trump the more popular he becomes.

These attacks on President Trump make him a symbol of righteousness. A man persecuted for his love of America. A man demonized for speaking truth to power.

The Bottom Line

We now know that those who truly embrace decency and show respect are being persecuted.

Those who embrace America and its Constitutional Republican form of government are now labeled as domestic terrorists or white supremacists by those in the White House, by “The Firm” and “The Deep State.”

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”

Today we have seen those who dissent charged, tried and imprisoned, for dissenting the outcome of the 2020 election on January 6th, 2020—a date that will live in infamy.

The more effective that person’s dissent is, the harsher their treatment. Which explains what is happening to President Donald J. Trump perfectly.

Today we have only two parties. The party of the patriots and the party of the traitors. The patriots are descent and respectful people. The traitors are decadent people who are self-indulgent elitists.

These are the only two choices on the 2024 ballots from the school house to the White House.

We ask that you choose wisely on November 5, 2024.

Our Constitutional Republic’s survival depends on it.
