Breaking: Supreme Court decides Trump’s fate in earth-shattering ruling

Democrats are pulling out all of the stops to prevent another Trump presidency. Now the former president has taken it to the highest court in the nation.

And the Supreme Court decided Trump’s fate in an earth-shattering ruling.

The Left has been pushing the unhinged narrative that Donald Trump engaged in an insurrection on January 6th, 2021 for years.

What started as a cheap ploy to hammer Trump in political ads quickly shifted to an all-out assault against the former president.

In a historic move, Colorado decided that Donald Trump could not appear on the state’s ballot in November.

They don’t want to beat Trump, they want him removed from the competition entirely.

The whole ordeal spiraled out of control and landed on the desks of America’s Supreme Court Justices.

And their groundbreaking ruling has finally been revealed.

The United States Supreme Court unanimously sided with former President Trump in his challenge to Colorado’s attempt to remove him from the 2024 primary ballot.

The court for the first time reviewed the meaning and scope of Article 3 of the 14th Amendment, which prohibits former officeholders who “engaged in insurrection” from holding public office again.

In more than 30 states, challenges have been filed to remove Trump from the 2024 ballot.

“We conclude that States may disqualify persons holding or attempting to hold state office. But States have no power under the Constitution to enforce Section 3 with respect to federal offices, especially the Presidency,” the Court wrote.

The state of Colorado had maintained that Trump’s behavior over 2020 election involvement, culminating in the Jan. 6 Capitol disturbances, constituted an “insurrection,” and so should be removed from the state’s ballot.

In more than two hours of vigorous, often heated debate last month, the nine justices pressed both sides on whether the president or a presidential candidate is exempt from the constitutional provision enacted after the Civil War.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh spoke for his colleagues when he said they were facing “difficult questions.”

“When you look at Section 3, the term insurrection jumps out,” he remarked. “And the questions are, what does that mean? How do you define it? Who decides? Who decides whether someone engaged in it?”

Kavanaugh observed that the courts considered these issues in an 1869 judgment known as “Griffin’s case,” which determined that an act of Congress was required to enforce the 14th Amendment’s prohibition on insurrectionists holding government office.

The biggest surprise of all was the fact that all four of the Court’s liberal-leaning Justices concurred with the opinion.

Of course, they wrote their own concurring opinions with a few nods to the liberal orthodoxy of the day, but they can’t escape the fact that they just delivered a 9-0 KO decision for Donald Trump.
