SCOTUS set to release BIG opinion, leftists could go berserk

The Supreme Court announced that it would be issuing at least one decision on Monday, leading to speculation that it could rule on the ballot eligibility of Republican frontrunner Donald J. Trump in Colorado.

In a Sunday surprise, the nation’s highest court indicated that it could be handing down rulings in a post to its website, the day before Super Tuesday when voters in two states that have banned Trump, Colorado, and Maine, set to go to the polls.

In December, four leftist Colorado judges became the first to boot Trump from the ballot using a questionable interpretation of a Civil War-era constitutional amendment that disqualifies him on the basis that he engaged in an “insurrection” even though the former president has not been found guilty in a court of law.

Shortly after the Colorado judges’ attack on democracy, the rabidly partisan Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows unilaterally moved to deprive voters of their right to vote for who they want by also ordering that he be stricken for the state’s ballot, citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

The court heard oral arguments on February 8 in the Colorado case with the justices appearing skeptical that one state had the right to remove a presidential candidate in a move that could impact the election on a national level.

“I think that the question that you have to confront is why a single state should decide who gets to be president of the United States,” Justice Elena Kagan, a Barack Obama appointee, told the attorney representing the state of Colorado.

If Monday’s ruling is indeed about whether Trump can be removed from the ballot it will provide some clarity before the vote and Colorado Secretary of State told USA Today that she has been expecting the decision.

“Because at the end of the day, it would be better for Coloradans and Americans to know where the Supreme Court is,” the Democrat said. “If we do not have a decision before we start announcing results on Tuesday night, votes for Trump will be counted.”

Whether the justices will address the larger issue on the 14th Amendment itself is unclear but the longer that it remains vague there will be other states that use lawfare tactics to ban Trump from the ballot, as a judge in Illinois just did.

If the SCOTUS rules in Trump’s favor, leftists are going to go berserk with the only question being to what degree, and a ruling that torpedoes future efforts to use the 14th Amendment as a political weapon will likely set off a nuclear meltdown given how much time and resources have been invested in it.

The court already set off a temper tantrum last week when it agreed to hear arguments on whether Trump had presidential immunity on January 6, 2021, the day of the so-called “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol when an election integrity protest spiraled out of control, an ugly scene but one that had a sub-zero realistic chance of overthrowing the government as the media, Democrats and Liz Cheney have led the public to believe.

By taking up the case on immunity, the SCOTUS has further blown up the timeline of ruthless Biden regime special counsel Jack Smith to ramrod his politicized prosecution of Trump through a stacked D.C. court before the election, a decision that had Democrats fuming.

“Their delay in considering this critical issue, this timely issue, is going to delay the resolution of these cases, by months at least,” whined Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday. “I think that was a disappointment. I think the court has acted quickly in the past when they realized that the presidential timetable was at risk. And I’m really concerned with what they’ve done.”

“The Court may announce opinions on the homepage beginning at 10 a.m. The Court will not take the Bench,” the SCOTUS website reads.
