Supreme Court Puts Trump Back on the Ballot

Supreme Court Puts Trump Back on the Ballot

It’s unanimous: State leaders cannot block their citizens from voting for the candidate of their choice.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court struck down the radicals. Eleven weeks ago, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that President Trump’s actions on Jan. 6, 2021, constituted an “insurrection,” that the Civil War-era 14th Amendment barring insurrectionists from office applied (and could be enforced by the Colorado state government), and that Donald J. Trump’s name must therefore not appear on presidential ballots in Colorado and any write-in votes for him must be discarded. It was one of the most radical and illegal recent attempts to stop Donald Trump.

The Supreme Court responded on Monday morning: “[W]e reverse.”

And they did it with a vote of 9-0. Over the past 15 years or so, 9-0 rulings have accounted for roughly 40 percent of the court’s decisions. Contentious cases resulting in 5-4 split decisions along with two or three justices writing their own concurring and dissenting opinions receive a lot more attention, of course, and many people thought this might be one of those. But even radical liberal justices who believe that the Constitution is less important than their political agenda acknowledged that this was so unconstitutional as to be utterly legally indefensible.

“Because the Constitution makes Congress, rather than the states, responsible for enforcing Section 3 against federal officeholders and candidates, we reverse,” they wrote.

During oral arguments on February 8, liberal Justice Elena Kagan summed up the central question when she told Colorado attorney Jason Murray, “The question you have to confront is why one state should decide who gets to be president of the United States.”

The 14th Amendment bars from public office those who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the government, but the authority to make that determination and apply that penalty (or to overrule it) lies with the representatives of the people in Congress—not with four radical justices on the Colorado Supreme Court.

Many liberal media pundits are furious. Former msnbc commentator Keith Olbermann ranted, “The Supreme Court has betrayed democracy. Its members including Jackson, Kagan and Sotomayor have proved themselves inept at reading comprehension. … Collectively the ‘court’ has shown itself to be corrupt and illegitimate. It must be dissolved.”

Merriam-Webster defines “democracy” as “government by the people,” but radicals like Olbermann apparently fail to comprehend that protecting the people’s right to elect the candidate of their choice is democratic—and that dissolving an entire constitutional institution on an angry whim is not.

The Constitution provides that any natural born citizen who is at least 35 years of age who has lived in the United States for at least 14 years may run for president. The only exception is if democratically elected representatives in Congress invoke the 14th Amendment and pass legislation for applying it. Donald Trump is a natural born citizen. He is over 35 years old. He has lived in the United States for more than 14 years. And he has not been formally barred from office by Congress. So the judges and journalists saying he cannot run for president because people might vote for him are the real illiterates who don’t know what the Constitution says nor even what “democracy” means.

The radicals who say they are fighting for “democracy” are often fighting for authoritarianism dressed like democracy, where district attorneys, judges, justices and other officeholders—as long as they’re liberal—ultimately provide voters with a list of preapproved presidential candidates, like the list provided by the ayatollah to voters in Iran. That’s not government by the people.

If the American republic truly is “government by the people,” Democrats remain in office by convincing people to vote for them. But the majority of Americans are upset with inflation and the border crisis, many are fearful about American strength abroad, and 1 in 3 thinks the 2020 election was stolen for Joe Biden. So the radicals are resorting to lawfare and trying to prevent Trump from running using logic that even the most radical-leftist Supreme Court justices find dodgy.

Last week, Fox News host Jesse Watters said, “You could see the [Democrats’] emotion, because they have put all of their eggs in this basket of lawfare, and now they’re realizing that the judges at the Supreme Court aren’t on their schedule. So they’re realizing that Joe Biden might have to win this himself. That’s what you saw last night—them realizing that this is going to be a free and fair election, to a certain extent, where it’s going to be mono e mono and you’re not going to have judges and lawyers [messing] around with everything.”

That is some good analysis! You can’t resent the fact that your candidate has to run against another candidate in an open election based on voters’ preferences, then say that you are pro-democracy. That’s the way it’s set up in Iran, North Korea, Russia and many other democracies in name only in Africa, South America and parts of Europe, where people cast votes but it’s the leaders doing the deciding.

The radical lawfare against Trump is a blatant attempt to steal elections. On the one hand, Monday’s ruling is a big win, but the American republic shouldn’t even be here. It’s another sign that the Constitution has already been practically destroyed. But what keeps the nation itself from getting blotted out completely is the persistence of President Trump and, as we are seeing a little more, support from the highest court in the land.

Considering the forces arrayed against him, it’s amazing that President Trump keeps fighting—and keeps winning. Even liberals know he’s headed for the nomination and the presidency. Conservative commentator Wayne Allyn Root is calling this phenomenon “the Trump miracle.” “Do you believe in miracles?” he asked. “It’s time to start believing. What’s happening is supernatural. Everyone is starting to see it. Everyone is starting to believe. The signs are there. Trump is ‘the chosen one.’ Trump is sent by God and blessed by God.”

That might sound kind of corny, but Root is correct to a large extent. A prophecy in Amos 7 states that God will pass by America one last time so that people have a chance to solve the terrible problems that have beset the nation. How? Well, the only way to solve the terrible problems is national repentance. But for Americans to even have enough time to repent, there needs to be a “Trump miracle” to delay the destruction of the nation.

“And the Lord said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more” (Amos 7:8).

“We have been watching this prophecy since June 1990, in the second issue of the Trumpet we ever produced,” wrote my father. “It speaks of a time when God is preparing to measure the destruction of end-time Israel—the United States and Britain—and He says, ‘I will not again pass by them any more’ (verse 8). This is just before severe correction comes on these nations if they don’t repent. They are receiving their final warning. … So the entire context of God saying I will not again pass by them anymore is the time of ‘Jeroboam’—an end-time antitype of King Jeroboam ii of Israel” (“Why I Still Believe Donald Trump Is Coming Back”).

This prophecy is why we have consistently insisted that President Trump will return to power, even immediately after the 2020 election was stolen and a pretender to the presidency was officially inaugurated. We have continued stating this even when it was unclear whether he would have enough support for a comeback—or whether he wanted to. We do not know how this will unfold. But keep watching the statements Mr. Trump releases, the rallies he holds around the nation, and the attacks that leftists will continue to mount against him. He is not finished.

Trump is certainly not “the chosen one” because he is the most righteous man in America. He undoubtedly has his problems. But God is still bringing Donald Trump back for a compelling reason—to defeat the radical left just long enough for Americans to do some self-reflection. In this way, Trump is both “sent by God and blessed by God.”
