Efforts to prevent GOP frontrunner Donald J. Trump from returning to the White House took another hit when a judge in Colorado ruled that his name must appear on the state’s Republican primary ballot.
On Friday, Judge Sarah B. Wallace rejected the attempt to block the former president’s name from the choices presented to voters in the state’s March 5, 2024 primary in a lawsuit brought by a handful of Colorado voters with the assistance of the left-wing nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington arguing that Trump be disqualified over his role in the January 6, 2021 chaos at the U.S. Capitol.

Anti-Trump activists have been using a legally dubious argument based on the so-called “insurrection” and using language from the arcane Civil War-era 14th Amendment to rig the election in favor of President Joe Biden, and the Rocky Mountain ruling is another blow to their scam.
The sticking point was the language of the questionable section that has served as the basis for the lawfare campaign to usurp democracy which does not specifically refer to the presidency.
“Part of the Court’s decision is its reluctance to embrace an interpretation which would disqualify a presidential candidate without a clear, unmistakable indication that such is the intent of Section Three,” Wallace wrote in her 102-page ruling.
“We applaud today’s ruling in Colorado, which is another nail in the coffin of the un-American ballot challenges,” said Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung in a statement. “With this decision, Democrats’ 14th Amendment challenges have now been defeated in Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota and New Hampshire.”

“These cases represent the most cynical and blatant political attempts to interfere with the upcoming presidential election by desperate Democrats who know Crooked Joe Biden is a failed president on the fast track to defeat,” he added.
Even though Judge Wallace ruled in Trump’s favor on ballot access, she claimed that he did “engage in insurrection,” a ridiculous description of a protest that had absolutely zero chance of overthrowing the entire United States government, a matter of faith with Democrats and Never Trumpers that has been reinforced by nearly three years of incessant propaganda churned out by a thoroughly corrupt media that’s in the bag for Biden.
“While Judge Wallace reached the result right, I have major qualms with her analysis. She states as a fact that Trump was guilty of incitement, a charge that no prosecutor has ever brought against him. That includes the D.C. Attorney General who announced his intention to pursue such charges. It also includes Special Counsel Jack Smith who threw every other possible criminal charge against Trump,” said Prof. Jonathan Turley, one of the nation’s foremost constitutional law experts.
According to Article 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment: “No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”
