We have reached a Constitutional Crisis of unimaginable consequences. These people who are clinging to the 14th Amendment to disqualify Trump are themselves violating their oath of office and should be removed from any public position, even as a dog catcher, for they are engaging in sedition. The Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows is an example of political corruption that is off the charts. She had violated the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment as well as the Sixth Amendment, not to mention the lack of any jurisdiction to remove Trump from the ballot.
This has all been contrived by their interpretation of what is an insurrection. Legally, sedition is conduct or speech that incites individuals to rebel violently against the government’s authority. Insurrection includes the actual acts of violence and rebellion. In a Republic, sedition and insurrection refer to inciting or participating respectfully in rebellion against the constitutionally established government, including its processes, institutions, or the rule of law. In other words, it MUST violently seek to overthrow the government or its institutions by overthrowing the Constitution itself. One cannot commit sedition or insurrection to “overthrow a government” while still claiming to uphold and defend the Constitution. Consequently, the rule of law and the Constitution are inextricably linked. There MUST be violent attacks that would thus not be protected actions.
Consequently, Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows has waged war on the Constitution itself. She has denied Trump Due Process of Law, a Trial by Jury, and he MUST be convicted under 18 USC §2383. Without a criminal conviction showing that he engaged in a violent attempt to overthrow the Constitution, the 14th Amendment cannot apply. Even assuming that Trump told the people to violently overthrow Congress, that would still be sedition and NOT participating in an insurrection.
Section 5 of the 14th Amendment states that only CONGRESS “shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article,” not Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows or any other state official. CONGRESS has legislated this article 18 USC §2383, and ONLY a conviction under that statute would bar Trump under the 14th Amendment.
The attempt to remove Trump from the ballot is clearly a violation of everyone’s civil rights, and Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows should now be subject to a class action lawsuit under 42 U.S. Code § 1983 for depriving the people the right to decide who they want to be president. Bellows has sought to overthrow the Constitution and end our basic definition of a free society, that is the right to vote. All to remove Trump from the ballot because she is a Democrat when she has ZERO authority to do so.
