New Colorado Motto – “Dump Trump”

We have arrived at a time in our history where, apparently, states can now pick and choose which presidential candidates can be voted for without any legal reason. So, Colorado decided that Trump isn’t a good fit for its state; therefore, he’s off the ballot. Specifically, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that Trump was invalidated from appearing on the ballot because he’d incited an insurrection on Jan. 6. Wait—can they really do that? Well, they just did. But can it actually stick? We’ll be finding that out very soon since the timeline to appeal is extremely tight.

But, why is Colorado removing Trump?

That’s a great question. Think about it--Colorado was one of the first states to legalize marijuana. They obviously are for freedom of choice, right? Well, not when it comes to the presidential ballot. You see, Colorado is fixated on a narrative that began almost 3 years ago. You know, the one about January 6th being an “insurrection.” Ah yes…the Democrats love to play with language. It’s almost like they began using that term right out of the gate for a longer-term objective—that is, to paint a picture of a horrendous constitutional crime led by none other than the MAGA Mafia’s very own “Orange Man.” It’s almost as if they knew that repeating the word ‘insurrection’ over and over again would lead to the public believing it to be true. So true, in fact, that when President Biden was recently asked if Trump was an insurrectionist, he responded, “I think it's self-evident … he certainly supported an insurrection. There's no question about it.” Really? Don’t they have to prove that in court first? Isn’t that what Jack Smith is so ardently trying to prove?

But back to the question at hand—why does Colorado want to remove Trump from its ballot? Colorado is a microcosm of the bigger national picture in which democrats will try to win at all costs. This power-hungry machine will try and defeat their competition by any means necessary, and they’re not afraid to stoop to bottomless depths to achieve their goals. Colorado just so happens to be the first state out on the dance floor; but you know it’s just the tip of the iceberg, with California not far behind.

What About the Colorado Republicans?

Vivek RamaswamiOf course, there are a few Republicans in the state of Colorado, and the GOP party does have a card to play. Fox News reported, “The Colorado Republican Party is planning to withdraw from the state's primary election and move to a caucus system if the ruling against former President Donald Trump stands.” This response was prompted when GOP Presidential Candidate, Vivek Ramaswami posted a video stating the following:

"I pledge to withdraw from the Colorado GOP primary ballot until Trump is also allowed to be on the ballot, and I demand that Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, and Nikki Haley do the same immediately — or else they are tacitly endorsing this illegal maneuver which will have disastrous consequences for our country,"

Not all GOP presidential candidates made the same pledge; you have to applaud Ramaswami’s commitment to our constitution by calling out this devious scheme, even at the cost of paving an easier road to victory for himself. He reiterated that this tactic was wrong and called it a “flagrant violation of the rule of law.”

What Happens Next?

It’s no surprise that the Trump campaign will appeal this ruling. Colorado's justices technically put their ruling on hold until Jan. 4, anticipating the U.S. Supreme court would ultimately decide the matter.

This date is critical as the candidates must be certified for next year’s primary on Jan. 5, 2024. Colorado's justices said if a review is sought in the U.S. Supreme Court before their stay expires, they would have to include President Trump’s name on the 2024 presidential primary ballot until the receipt of any order or mandate from the Supreme Court.

Many legal experts and news pundits, from Johnathan Turley to Alan Dershowitz, believe Trump will win this case and the Supreme Court will rule in his favor. Of course, President Biden continues to fan the flame of President Trump’s guilt….“You saw it all. Now whether the 14th Amendment applies, I’ll let the court make that decision. But he certainly supported an insurrection,” Biden said. “No question about it — none, zero. And he seems to be doubling down on everything.”

In any event, there is not much time to keep this suspense alive, as Jan. 4th is quickly approaching. Chief White House Correspondent, Simon Ateba recently posted on “X” that what is happening is not new—President Lincoln also was subject to not appearing on several ballots.

“Just like Colorado now, the Democrats, who were mainly slave owners, barred Republican presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln from appearing on the ballots in 10 Southern states during the 1860 presidential election. But Abraham Lincoln was elected as the 16th President of the United States, becoming the first Republican president in American history. Despite not being on the ballots in those states, he won the election with a majority of electoral votes from the states where he was on the ballot.”

Ateba went on to point out the paradox of how Republicans are now viewed as the racists, when they were the party that brought slavery to an end. The Democrats wanted to keep black people enslaved, even at the cost of war. He petitions God to not allow us to repeat history.

We all know how quickly things can go south if justice does not prevail in this situation. If we trust that Lady Justice is truly blind, the outcome should be evident. Of course, recently, our justice system does seem to have taken some wrong turns. Let’s pray the Supreme Court gets it right in this case.
