    It was a slam dunk in favor of Trump.

    Is it a question of state’s rights or complete election anarchy?

    The extreme right wing six ‘justices’ are in the bag for Trump and are doing all they can to prevent Trump from ever going to trial on any federal charges, especially the obvious theft of top secret/sensitive classified documents.

    Some of those documents are STILL missing.

    The Supreme Court ruled UNANIMOUSLY that Colorado, and thus any other state, does not have the power to remove President Trump from its ballot under the 14th Amendment. I said in these forums when this nonsense first started that only the Congress, not the states, have the authority under the 14th Amendment to do this. Now, those Colorado judges should be impeached for abuse of power and exceeding their authority, same for any other state official who tried this stunt. A judge or any state official should be competent enough to properly interpret the Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

    Again, even the left wing Democrat Judges came down on the side of the Constitution in this ruling. All you lefties are swinging in the wind.

    The character smashed under the gavel represents either the American people or the electoral system. Or both. The SCOTUS ruling also made it harder, or impossible, to remove from national ballots — if they are so declared prior to an election — those candidates who fall under the categories mentioned in the 14th amendment, or to remove them from office after they are elected.

    Now Dems are saying the liberal justices are as bad as conservative. The entire court needs to be abolished.

    At least the 9-0 ruling is bringing the true agenda of the left to the surface. They want to tear down the government starting with SCOTUS.

    SCOTUS wiped out the Voting Rights Act because it was working (insert own “duh?” sound here) and Red states went full on voter suppression (SCOTUS cannot tell states how to handle elections), then tells states they have no right to determine who is on the ballot (SCOTUS can tell states how to handle elections). See the consistency? Me, neither.

    Don’t worry the leftist whackos and blue state Attorney Generals will NOT stop. The 3 leftists on the court left the door open saying they didn’t agree this ruling stopped “other” federal action to keep Trump off the ballot. Once he is unjustly convicted in a D.C. Court after the nomination is secured, there will be states that try to remove Trump from the ballot because he would be a “felon”. A wacko is gonna wacko!

    Sorry to disappoint you Dims, but the rule of law prevails. Again.

    9-0.

    Think about that, even the ‘liberal’ judges agreed Colorado went to far, and effectively, stopped all this nonsense pending from the other states.

    What most overlook and if you go back to the original case, as I mentioned then, that the 14th amendment only applies to the general election and not to the primaries. Primaries are the selection within the party as to who will represent them in the general election it is not an official ballot per say. It is a word game that needs to be played correctly to get the correct outcome. Apply the law where the law was designed to be applied, not where you want it to apply.

    considering the knowledge that half the court is corrupt and bought, and that they do not have any enforcement power except their acceptance as being untainted (18% approval rating) maybe colorado should ignore them as the court has ignored the law and the will of the people (oh and the constitution) We keep playing by the rules while the bannons and the rumps walk all over every loop hole and bribe they can get, not to mention our friends the russians and no korea. The argument that a state would have too much power to decide an election was opposite of what happen with Bush v Gore in Florida. And the same with reproduction rights, can we say 1920’s. This is Moscow Mitch’s tactics. Cant have a justice put on the bench, too close to an election, and then wam, weeks before a changing of the guard. Impeach twice but since out of office, what’s the point. Moscow Mitch will be in the history books as the biggest enemy of the United States and Democracy since rump and his team of a-s-s holes.

    side note. Kentucky benefited more from the money that California paid into the emergency funds than any other state in the union. Why should that be allowed when they make it a point to s-h-i-t on California every chance they get? Let them pay their own bills since we are such an awful group of left wing radicals.

    As I understand the high courts decision, they overturned the state high courts decisions since they decided that the US Constitution Amendment was for the federal courts to decide, not the state courts. So, even if SCOTUS thought that Trump was in violation of said amendment, their decision was based on a jurisdictional dispute.

    Much as I’d like to see Don the Con removed from a State’s ballots, I can see how it’s possible it could set a precedent where states like Texas or Florida, unimpaired by loyalty to the Constitution, the country or ‘critical thinking’, would do the same especially if they saw a possibility of losing control.

    The decision by SCOTUS actually made no difference on the Colorado primary’s Republican ballot because Trump’s name remained on it for today’s election. I’m unsure what would have happened to those votes if the SCOTUS decision had gone the other way.

    Judges, both conservative leaning and liberal leaning, see the problem with the ruling by the five male justices. They basically neutralized the 14th amendment’s third clause by misinterpreting the constitution.

    Even Amy Coney Barrett couldn’t bring herself to join those male justices because she knew they were not making a correct judgement.

    The Fourteenth Amendment Section 3 states:“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

    The big points here is 1) shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.

    This does not say they have to be convicted of anything, “just witnessed by citizens as engaging in” is all that is needed to disqualify anyone so engaged.

    To override the rule established by the Fourteenth Amendment in Section 3, The Amendment itself takes overriding it out of the supreme courts hands and places it squarely in Congress’ by stating the following:

    But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
