(Congressional Agenda) – The Supreme Court in Michigan has dealt a major blow to the efforts of a radical leftist group who sought to have former President Donald Trump removed from the GOP primary ballot, attempting to follow up on a ruling against Trump handed down by the Colorado Supreme Court. If you didn’t already know, the left is terrified of the former president defeating President Joe Biden. They know if he gets in office his wrath against the deep state, especially as it exists in the Justice Department, will be brutal and swift.
The Daily Caller reports, the Michigan Supreme Court was “not persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed by this Court,” a brief order declared. As noted earlier, a week prior to this court’s decision, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that Trump was not eligible to appear on the primary ballot due to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which, as per their interpretation, prohibits a person who has served as a government official and taken an oath to uphold the Constitution from being able to hold office if they have “engaged in insurrection.”
“The Colorado Supreme Court’s decision leaves in place a ruling by a lower court finding both Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and the courts cannot restrict Trump from being a candidate during the state’s primary, according to the Detroit Free Press,” the piece said.
Judge Elizabeth Welch put out a short dissent on Wednesday, “considering the importance of the legal questions at issue and the speed with which the appellants and the judiciary have moved, I believe it is important for this Court to issue a decision on the merits.”
The organization responsible for filing the lawsuit in Michigan that got the whole case rolling is Free Speech For People, which is hilarious given speech is exactly what they were hoping to limit by having Trump removed from the ballot.
“The events of January 6, 2021, amounted to an insurrection or a rebellion under Section 3: a violent, coordinated effort to storm the Capitol to obstruct and prevent the Vice President of the United States and the United States Congress from fulfilling their constitutional roles by certifying President Biden’s victory, and to illegally extend then-President Trump’s tenure in office,” the lawsuit read.
Keep in mind, ladies and gentlemen, this is not simply a fight about whether or not Trump should be on the ballot. That is certainly part of it. But this is really about progressives attempting to slap tape across the mouths of those in this country who are dissenters against the agenda they continue to push. Remember, their attacks on Trump are really attacks on you.
