Judges are going to play an outsized role in determining the winner of the 2024 election.
That’s because Joe Biden weaponized the justice system as his main plan for victory.
And a Supreme Court ruling about 2024 left Donald Trump grinning from ear to ear.
Donald Trump leads Joe Biden in both the national polls and the battleground states that will determine who emerges victorious next November.
Democrat prosecutors filing four indictments containing 91 criminal charges carrying a combined sentence of 727 years failed to derail Trump’s re-election campaign.
With their backs up against the wall Democrats resorted to a Hail Mary legal strategy of filing lawsuits in blue states with the expectation that friendly judges would rule that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment bans Trump from running for president and therefore his name can’t appear on the ballot.
Section 3 reads:
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.
This insane legal theory rests on the bonkers idea that Section 3 is self-executing and that state election officials have the right to remove Trump’s name from the ballot on the grounds that what happened on January 6, 2021 constituted an insurrection.
But Donald Trump was never charged with insurrection and when Congress ratified the 14th Amendment everyone understood that insurrection and rebellion meant the Civil War, not giving mundane political speeches.
The text of the amendment also makes it clear the ban only extends to members of Congress as well as participating in the Electoral College.
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment never says it bars anyone from holding the office of president or vice president.
The Minnesota Supreme Court became the most prominent court to address this matter.
And the justices ruled in Trump’s favor saying his name can appear on the primary ballot.
Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung celebrated this as a win for democracy, the rule of law and sanity.
“Today’s decision in Minnesota, like New Hampshire before it, is further validation of the Trump Campaign’s consistent argument that the 14th Amendment ballot challenges are nothing more than strategic, un-Constitutional attempts to interfere with the election by desperate Democrats who see the writing on the wall: President Trump is dominating the polls and has never been in a stronger position to end the failed Biden presidency next November,” Cheung’s statement read.
“The ballot challenges (which we call the Democrats’ STEAL Curtain) are universally funded by left-wing activist groups masquerading as ‘non-partisan watchdogs.’ These groups are funded by some of the biggest financiers of the Democrat Party, including the likes of George Soros. They are sham groups doing the bidding of the Biden campaign and their ballot challenges should be summarily thrown out wherever they next arise,” Cheung added.
As Joe Biden’s poll numbers grow worse, Democrats know they can’t campaign on telling the American people their policies made their lives better so liberal prosecutors and lawyers file more criminal charges and lawsuits against Trump.
But the inverse correlation between Joe Biden’s poll numbers and the amount of legal challenges facing Trump is obvious to the voters and causing the public to ignore the left’s lawfare and focus on which president – Trump or Biden – had a positive impact on their lives.
And right now that choice favors Donald Trump.
