This decision will make Trump stronger, not weaker

from The Gray Area:

The Colorado Supreme Court did yesterday, what everybody expected them to do, they removed Donald Trump from the ballot in their state. The justification they used was that he incited a riot and promoted an insurrection and according to the 14th amendment that disqualified him to run for president, period, so they pulled him from the Colorado ballot in 2024. Thus, despite the fact that he’s not been found guilty of what they accuse him of, they decided they wanted to dismiss his ability to run for President in Colorado. This is a clear example of political prosecution & persecution, consistent with the rest of the attacks on Donald Trump the last 7 years. With all the cries from the left about Donald Trump‘s attack on democracy, authoritarian plans and tyrannical communication, it is actually the actions of the Democrat Party that evidence that threat to democracy and authoritarianism. In this decision they have dismissed the Constitution by attacking the First Amendment, due process and democracy. And, they’re fine with that, as long as they believe, or stay convinced by political narratives, that Donald Trump is a danger and deserving of this decision. But, in truth, it’s the political narratives that are the danger to our democracy. Using false narratives to stoke fear, they further welcome authoritarian reaction and unconstitutional decisions from their supporters. Even his Republican competitors for the presidential nomination have come out in his support. House has been stated by many media outlets. this will undoubtedly end up in the Supreme Court and that’s for two reasons one it’s unprecedented to Donald Trump and the republican party will appeal.

Meanwhile, other allies and foreign leaders have lambasted the decision. Trump’s campaign said in a statement: “Unsurprisingly, the all-Democrat appointed Colorado Supreme Court has ruled against President Trump, supporting a Soros-funded, left-wing group’s scheme to interfere in an election on behalf of Crooked Joe Biden by removing President Trump’s name from the ballot and eliminating the rights of Colorado voters to vote for the candidate of their choice. Democrat Party leaders are in a state of paranoia over the growing, dominant lead President Trump has amassed in the polls. They have lost faith in the failed Biden presidency and are now doing everything they can to stop the American voters from throwing them out of office next November. The Colorado Supreme Court issued a completely flawed decision tonight and we will swiftly file an appeal to the United States Supreme Court and a concurrent request for a stay of this deeply undemocratic decision. We have full confidence that the U.S. Supreme Court will quickly rule in our favor and finally put an end to these unAmerican lawsuits.” And the Make America Great Again Inc. super PAC said: “Today’s ruling by the Colorado Supreme Court is much more than a political attack on President Donald Trump — it’s an attack on the Republican Party and an attack on the very fabric of America. Everyone, including the Republicans running against Donald Trump for the Republican nomination, and even President Joe Biden, must speak out swiftly against this unconstitutional ruling and stand for fair and honest elections.” Even a foreign leader has weighed in. El Salvador President Nayib Bukele—notorious for his authoritarian leadership—posted on X: “The United States has lost its ability to lecture any other country about ‘democracy.’” If the Democrat party thinks that this decision in Colorado will somehow hurt Donald Trump‘s candidacy, they are sorely mistaken. As can already be seen, he is a martyr to his supporters for standing up for the Constitution and the country. Even to those who don’t like him will come to his aid when they see this kind of injustice continue in other states, which it will. The Supreme Court will certain stop this unconstitutional injustice and thereby eliminate similar activity in other states. The only thing that the Democrats can be hoping for is that when the Supreme Court comes out with a decision to block this Colorado action, that they can use it as further evidence that the Supreme Court is out of control and needs to be 'packed' on behalf of the Democrats. This will engage many of their supporters. At this point we will have political narratives on steroids for both parties. Narratives about the threat to democracy from Donald Trump, MAGA, all Republicans and the Supreme Court will energize the left wing media and progressive base. Their evidence against the Supreme Court will be elevated narratives against conservative Justices like Clarence Thomas, over turning this Colorado decision and overturning Roe v Wade in 2022. Democrats have affirmed the decision. Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead impeachment manager during Trump’s first impeachment trial and a candidate for U.S. Senate in California, posted on X, formerly Twitter: “The Colorado Supreme Court just ruled Donald Trump is disqualified from the ballot — and from holding office — under the 14th Amendment. Accountability for inciting an insurrection. It’s about time.” Getting Schiff's support, an aggressively partisan Democrat, already proven to be a liar on an enormous scale, serves more to bolster Trump than to detrack from his candidacy. On the right, the political persecution narrative will be on steroids. The tyrannical socialist, even communist narratives will be echoed against the left. The only way people can fight against these narrative, and other narratives, is to do their own investigation on the facts. Do the Constitution and Donald Trump‘s Legal woes justify such a decision in the 2024 election? Do Donald Trump‘s actions and legal woes justify concern about his authoritarian tendencies and threat to democracy in 2024? If you can ignore the narratives and just deal with the facts you will see the truth, as always. The best way to do that is to 'vary your news sources'. If you find a news source that consistently describes Trump as a Nazi-like authoritarian, guilty of all numbers of crimes, then you should know that that news source is pushing false political narratives. This is only the beginning of the election narrative barrage coming in 2024.
