Trump Files Appeal To U.S. Supreme Court Over Decision To Remove Him From Colorado Ballot | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Former President Donald Trump filed an appeal on Wednesday to the U.S. Supreme Court asking them to overturn the Colorado Supreme Court's decision to remove him from the 2024 presidential primary ballot.

    The appeal came one day after Trump appealed a similar decision in Maine by the state's Democratic secretary of state to kick him off the ballot. Lawyers for Trump said that the Supreme Court should reverse the Colorado decision and "return the right to vote for their candidate of choice to the voters."

    "The question of eligibility to serve as President of the United States is properly reserved for Congress, not the state courts, to consider and decide. By considering the question of President Trump's eligibility and barring him from the ballot, the Colorado Supreme Court arrogated Congress' authority," the appeal said.

    In a 4-3 decision last month, the Colorado Supreme Court found Trump ineligible to appear on the ballot, claiming he had participated in an "insurrection," but placed the ruling on hold until January 4, pending an expected appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Trump's appeal says that the Colorado Supreme Court misinterpreted the facts and that he was not guilty of insurrection on January 6, 2021. "It was not 'insurrection' and President Trump in no way 'engaged' in 'insurrection,'" the appeal says.

    The filing pointed to Trump's remarks on January 6, where he told his supporters to "peacefully" protest the 2020 election.

    "We are reviewing Trump's appeal and will be filing our response tomorrow to ensure the Colorado Supreme Court's historic ruling stands," said Eric Olson, a lawyer who represented the Colorado residents who sued to bar Trump from office.

    The former president and current frontrunner for the Republican nomination will be allowed to be on the Colorado ballot for now thanks to a previous appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court by the Colorado Republican Party.

    "With the appeal filed, Donald Trump will be included as a candidate on Colorado's 2024 Presidential Primary Ballot when certification occurs on January 5, 2024, unless the U.S. Supreme Court declines to take the case or otherwise affirms the Colorado Supreme Court ruling," Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold's office said last week.

Under the cover of Covid, and now in the shadow of the infamous Election Irregularities of that fated 2020 presidential election, with current emerging alleged election fraud in Nevada and Pennsylvania inconveniently slipping into the public discourse, there is proved a colluded ongoing Election Interference in the nomination of the Republican candidate, the likes of which has never occurred in our Constitutional Republic's history, albeit, the question remains: Do you support the plain-sight Election Interference of the Democratic Socialist party, employing its minions in their Propagandistic Media, and their Two Tiered Justice System?
  No, I do not support Election Interference; I am a patriot unto our Constitution.
  Yes, I do support Election Interference; the alternative, Donald Trump, to this mentally diminished president is far worse.
  "What, me worry" if elections are rigged?

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Considering the current overwhelming obstacles inflicting stress upon America's working class: rampant inflation; energy insecurity; supply chain turmoil; banking failures; foreign policy disasters; government corruption; (DEI) Diversity Equity Inclusion narrative, with WOKE extremes practiced; Climate Change ideology; intractable crime wave in Leftist cities; wide open border by executive design; a permanently discredited Legacy Media; failed or failing education industry, just to name a few of the many: Who should Americans blame?

  Leftist controlled Congress for the last 4 years.
