The establishment has been doing everything in its power to stop Trump. The Supreme Court ruled that Donald Trump may run for the presidency next year. Multiple individual states have attempted to remove him from the future ballot, and in this particular case, John Anthony Castro, a man with no chance of winning the race, brought the case forward. Castro stated that Trump should be ineligible to run for office due to the events of January 6.
Section 3 Disqualification from Holding Office 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. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
None of the 1,000+ protesters were arrested or charged with “insurrection.” Trump was correct when he said, “They’re after YOU, I’m just in the way.” They needed to demonize the protestors in order to attack Trump at the top. The 14th Amendment was passed on June 13, 1866, with the sole purpose of punishing those who supported the South during the US Civil War. Trump did not engage in a rebellion. He had valid questions about the results of the election and did not fund or encourage the acts of J6.
We have seen numerous politicians protest on the streets for social justice causes. The Squad members faked their arrest after protesting outside of the Supreme Court. The Democrats encouraged the people to take to the streets in the aftermath of George Floyd, and those protests were actual riots where cities burned and people were murdered. They would need to drain the entire swamp if they wanted to uphold this clause in the manner they wish to interpret it.
Trump is too popular to stop. He is leading all the polls and has not attended a single debate. Trump is in the 24/7 news cycle, and whether good or bad, he receives more press than all the other candidates combined. The people want Trump back in office – the country was in a drastically better place only a few years ago. Too bad our leaders are installed and not elected.
