Democrats have been desperately trying to disqualify Pro-Trump candidates using the 14th amendment and have failed every time
Democrats know that they cannot beat strong, Pro-Trump candidates in a fair election. Therefore, they have been trying to use Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which was used to prevent Confederates from running for office after the Civil War, to disqualify them outright
They have aimed at Pro-Trump GOP superstars like Paul Gosar (AZ,) Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA,) and Madison Cawthorn (NC,) as well as others who dared to question the integrity of the 2020 election. And so far, no suit has been successful.
Most recently, an Arizona judge threw out a case against Representatives Paul Gosar (AZ) and Andy Biggs (AZ) which would have, if successful, disqualified them from holding office.
Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury ruled that the Constitution does not allow for private action to enforce the section, and dismissed the lawsuits altogether.
From the Epoch Times:
The section, known as the Disqualification Clause, says that no person shall hold a federal office if they “have engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the government.
Two groups linked to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a self-described socialist, filed the complaints, claiming that Gosar, Biggs, and Finchem violated the clause because they “helped facilitate” the Jan. 6, 2021, breach of the U.S. Capitol.
But the clause clearly states that Congress is the body that has the power to enforce the section, a determination also outlined in one of the few cases that deal with it, Coury said.
The radical socialist group’s goal is to rid the country of Pro-Trump patriots, and to ensure that President Trump cannot run again in 2024 by accusing everyone they don’t like of treason.
If that sounds familiar it’s because it’s just a more aggressive version of what they did in 2016 accusing everyone of being Russian bots and traitors.
Judge Myers, who threw out a similar cause against Representative Madison Cawthorn (NC) also ruled that the clause is no longer enforceable.
Myers ruled that enforcement of the clause was removed by Congress by two laws: the Amnesty Act of 1872, which said that “all political disabilities” imposed by the section no longer applied to people, with certain exceptions; and the Amnesty Act of 1898, which ended the disabilities for everybody else.
Their efforts are as futile as they are shady. Only the most liberal and corrupt of judges would allow for a candidate to be disqualified unjustly as the socialists want them to be.
