A Sword of Damocles Hangs Over Trump as Dems Connive to Outfox the GOP Again

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The Supreme court left the door wide open for Democrat mischief on their March 4th Ruling. Everyone heralded the 5-4 ruling that Colorado must include Trump on the ballot with the decision a State cannot exclude Trump from the ballot. Yet a dangerous poison pill was left.

The Democrats always have an insurance policy. And we will learn that the Dems are already deep into this latest gamesmanship. What was left was a Sword of Damocles. The Sword? It is the Congress that is to determine the 14th Amendment. The 14th?

..a disqualification for insurrection can occur only when Congress enacts a particular kind of legislation pursuant to Section 5 of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Not a State. Thus Colorado must permit Trump on the ballot.

The American Thinker picks it up from here:

Perhaps Colorado justices believed that Trump’s words on January 6, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard” was a call to overthrow the government that at the time, Trump was in charge of.

Some insurrection.

A few hundred unarmed protesters, wandering through the Capitol, one dressed as a shaman, were about to take control of the three branches of the federal government including the military.

….

As expected, this case arrived at the U.S. Supreme Court where a March 4 decision stated:

The Constitution empowers Congress to prescribe how those determinations should be made. The relevant provision is Section 5, which enables Congress, subject of course to judicial review, to pass “appropriate legislation” to “enforce” the Fourteenth Amendment.

A concurring judgment by Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Ketanji Brown Jackson clarified:

The majority announces that a disqualification for insurrection can occur only when Congress enacts a particular kind of legislation pursuant to Section 5 of the Fourteenth Amendment.

In other words, Congress, by a simple majority, can pass a bill claiming that Trump is disqualified from election due to being an “insurrectionist.” An insurrection can be whatever Congress says it is, just like a man wearing a dress can be a woman. When Joe awakens from his nap, he will sign the bill, making it law.

GOP Reps. Kevin McCarthy, Ken Buck, and Mike Gallagher all abruptly resigned from Congress, leaving Republicans with only a one-vote majority in the House.

Buck hinted that more of his colleagues may resign, potentially leaving Hakeem Jeffries and Democrats controlling U.S. House.

Republicans foolishly expelled Rep. George Santos, a reliable conservative vote, rather than letting him finish his term. He already stated that he wouldn’t run for reelection. Another R vote gone.

Note that Santos was indicted but not convicted. So was Democrat Sen. Robert Menendez and he is still serving in the Democrat-controlled Senate. Republican “principles” lost them a much-needed vote.

If you don’t believe the Democrats would try to disqualify Trump in this manner, such a bill is already in the works, introduced by Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin.

Per Axios:

Raskin pointed to legislation he introduced with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) in 2022 creating a pathway for the Justice Department to sue to keep candidates off the ballot under the 14th Amendment.

“We are going to revise it in light of the Supreme Court’s decision,” Raskin said.

Raskin suggested the bill would be paired with a resolution declaring Jan. 6 an “insurrection” and that those involved “engaged in insurrection.”

If the House flips to the Democrats, this is a done deal. Even if it doesn’t, don’t be surprised if 1-2 House Republicans, on their way out via resignation or not running for reelection, vote with the Democrats. GOP Senators. Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski? (leaves little doubt?)

Since the SCOTUS decision mentioned, “Subject of course to judicial review,” that would stop such a scheme, right?

Review by whom?

Why would SCOTUS block such an act of Congress, especially if they green-lighted it in their recent decision. But Democrats have an insurance policy.

They could just add four more far left justices to SCOTUS. Why not? Congress has that power and has exercised it in the past.

Sen. Ed Markey and House of Representatives members Jerrold Nadler, Hank Johnson and Mondaire Jones have scheduled a news conference for Thursday to announce the introduction of the legislation in both chambers. The measure would expand the number of justices from the current nine to 13, according to a copy of the Senate bill reviewed by Reuters.

Who needs unconstitutional election law changes? Forget ballot-harvesting, voter I.D., signature verification, social media election censorship and interference, or any other non-legal means of rigging the election. The above plan is Constitutional and will be applauded across corporate media as “democracy in action.”

The Democrats have the perfect solution for kneecapping Trump and keeping Washington, D.C. in a business-as-usual mode for the foreseeable future.

If it’s a possibility to me, Trump is aware of what’s ahead and hopefully has a plan and solution. Otherwise, the GOP will once again shoot itself in the foot over their so-called “principles”  on which they can comfortably sit while warming the back benches as a permanent irrelevant minority party, watching the Democrats destroy America as we know it.

Keep reading.

So while MTG and Massie, members of the House GOP, are playing tabletop thought games of ridding themselves of Johnson, the Republic hangs in the balance with the possibility of the Dems taking complete control of all branches and resolving the 14th amendment language to rid themselves once and for all of Trump

Yesterday’s video- Hey gang, sit back and chill until after the November election.

Momentum builds to oust House Speaker Johnson

The worst of the swamp.
