California and other states have tried to keep President Donald Trump off the primary and presidential ballot.
Lawmakers told Attorney General Rob Bonta that the state cannot put Trump on the ballot “for inciting an insurrection” on January 6.
The lawmakers wrote: “We all watched in horror Mr. Trump’s insurrection against the United States when he ordered a mob of his supporters to the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021 to intimidate Vice President Pence and the United States Congress.”
Commiefornia is desperate to keep Trump off the ballot:
The move, which comes amid several lawsuits to keep Trump off state ballots across the country, is unique because Bonta could use his standing as California’s top law enforcement officer to expedite a state court ruling on the matter. Should the effort succeed, California could be the first state to bump Trump off its ballot, even if the ruling is ultimately overturned.
Bonta would also be the country’s first state attorney general to take a swing at knocking Trump off the ballot. The other cases rely on secretaries of state.
Bonta’s spokesperson told Politico: “There is no denying that Donald Trump has engaged in behavior that is unacceptable and unbecoming of any leader — let alone a President of the United States.”
California claims Trump violated the 14th Amendment, Section 3:
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.
How can you tell the Founders didn’t write the 14th Amendment? Section 3. Our independence from Britain didn’t happen in a peaceful manner.
Britannica defines insurrection as “an organized and usually violent act of revolt or rebellion against an established government.” Key words: organized and usually violent.
The Capitol Hill Riot was not organized. It was not violent. One person died, and a Capitol Hill policeman killed her.
So, going by the insurrection definition, does that mean Hillary Clinton and her cronies can never run for office? They tried to overturn the 2016 election.
The Democrats had two bullcrap impeachment inquiries and trials against Trump.
Why are all of them still in office? That’s a rhetorical question.DONATE
