This is a breaking news alert!

President Trump has been REMOVED from the 2024 Ballot by the Colorado Supreme Court!

Here are some of members of the Colorado Supreme Court that made this decision:

Is this election interference?

Of the worst kind?

What are they so afraid of?

Folks, this is bad news and good news.

The bad news is the obvious….

But the good news is two-fold: (1) This is already a Blue State and may not have much of an impact, and (2) It means they are scared.  Very, very scared of President Trump!  It means he’s not only way up in the polls but probably so far ahead they know they need to resort to something extreme (and likely Unconstitutional) like this to try and stop him!  And that’s good news!  They played their hand!

Even CNN refers to this as “stunning and unprecedented”:

In a stunning and unprecedented decision, the Colorado Supreme Court removed former President Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 ballot on Tuesday.

The court ruled 4-3 that Trump isn’t an eligible presidential candidate because of the 14th Amendment’s “insurrectionist ban.”

The ruling will be placed on hold pending appeal until January 4.

The court upheld a trial judge’s decision that Trump engaged in the January 6, 2021, insurrection — and then overturned her conclusion that the ban doesn’t apply to the presidency.

The state Supreme Court decision only applies to Colorado but is sure to roil the 2024 presidential campaign.

It tees up an appeal to the US Supreme Court, which could settle the matter for the entire nation.

Colorado election officials have said the matter needs to be settled by January 5, which is the statutory deadline to set the list of candidates for the GOP primary.

Trump denies wrongdoing regarding January 6 and has decried the 14th Amendment lawsuits as an abuse of the legal process. He is under federal and state indictment in connection with his attempts to overturn the 2020 election – and he has pleaded not guilty.

On the campaign trail, Trump has derided the lawsuits and argued that they are an attempt to use the courts to stop him from returning to the White House while he is the front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

More on the 14th Amendment: Ratified after the Civil War, the 14th Amendment says officials who take an oath to support the Constitution are banned from future office if they “engaged in insurrection.” But the wording is vague, it doesn’t explicitly mention the presidency, and has only been applied twice since 1919.

And from CNBC:

The Colorado Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that former President Donald Trump cannot appear on the state’s ballots for the 2024 election due to his incitement of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, reversing a lower court ruling.

But the state Supreme Court stayed its ruling from taking effect until Jan. 4, “subject to further appellate proceedings.”

The ruling is the first time a state court has agreed that Trump, who is the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, should be barred from ballots in a state because of a U.S. constitutional provision barring people who have engaged in “insurrection” from federal office.

Courts in Minnesota and Michigan have rejected similar suits challenging Trump’s placement on the presidential ballot, but the issue is continuing to be litigated in a number of states.

“A majority of the court holds that President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” the Colorado high court said in its ruling.

“Because he is disqualified, it would be a wrongful act under the Election Code for the Colorado Secretary of State to list him as a candidate on the presidential primary ballot,” the ruling said.

A group of six Colorado voters in September sued to block Trump from state ballots in 2024 because of a claim he was barred due to the constitutional provision.

Section 3 says that “no person” can serve as an officer of the United States who, having previously taken an oath of federal office, “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the U.S.

Now we head to the U.S. Supreme Court….
