House Democrats Plotting New Scheme To Bar Trump From Ballot

(Congress Report) – If you thought the Supreme Court ruling that former President Donald Trump must be allowed on the ballot in Colorado, after their Supreme Court yanked him off it for supposedly violating Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, was going to be the end of this strategy to prevent Trump from taking on President Joe Biden in the 2024 Presidential election, you better think again. Radical liberals are now working on a brand new way to try and have him booted.

The decision, handed down on Monday, was a unanimous 9-0 for allowing Trump to remain on the GOP primary ballot, not only in Colorado, but in Maine and Illinois as well. However, there were five justices on the bench — Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh — who offered folks that want a specific candidate disqualified another option, which is to take the matter to Congress, CNN stated.

“We conclude that States may disqualify persons holding or attempting to hold state office. But States have no power under the Constitution to enforce Section 3 with respect to federal offices, especially the Presidency,” the justices declared in their ruling.

They continued, “Nothing in the Constitution delegates to the States any power to enforce Section 3 against federal officeholders and candidates.”

“Within hours, Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland told Axios he was working on a bill to offer those who want to weaponize the 14th Amendment an opportunity to do so,” The Western Journal noted.

“Congress will have to try and act,” Raskin went on to say, revealing he was already starting work on this particular option. These people are absolutely relentless in their desire to strip away choice of any kind from the American citizenry when it comes to choosing leadership. Leftists only want you to vote for the candidates they approve of, which is exactly how they are plotting to fill the ranks of Congress with “elites” they believe should be telling us all what to do.

Raskin then discussed a piece of legislation from 2022 that he worked on with Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida that got nowhere fast, adding, “We are going to revise it in light of the Supreme Court’s decision.”

The Maryland representative said the bill is a long shot, especially since Republicans are currently in command of the House, though by a thin margin.

“I don’t have a lot of hope that Speaker [Mike] Johnson will allow us to bring enforcement legislation to the floor, but we have to try and do it,” he remarked in an interview with Axios.

It’s worth noting, Raskin was on the Jan. 6th House Select Committee that investigated the riot at the Capitol building and has consistently maintained his assertion that Trump engaged in insurrection and poses a grave threat to the United States.

That’s what we call a raging case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

  1. Well, we all have the choice of notifying JAG at Guantanamo Bay, Vice Commander Darse E Crandall of our thoughts about Congress breaking all laws when they deem it against them. The Military is the only way to go, especially now that we are all under Martial Law, making Congress in violation of anything they do. They all have committed treason many times since 2015. Good riddance to Congress. They are about to be arrested anyway if they haven’t already been arrested.
