Yet again, a measure to remove Donald Trump from the ballot using Section 3 of the 14th Amendment has been struck down.
This time, it happened at the Minnesota Supreme Court.
So, Donald Trump will remain on the primary ballot in the upcoming election.
Wasting Time and Money
These lawsuits have been filed all over the country, with the most prominent one now being held in Colorado.
The cases have not been able to get very far because most judges realize the idea that you can prevent someone from running for president via Section 3 of the 14th Amendment is ludicrous if they have never been charged and convicted of insurrection.
This ruling, however, takes a much different approach.
The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that eligible or not, a state has the right to put anyone it wants on the ballot.
Chief Justice Natalie Hudson stated, "There is no state statute that prohibits a major political party from placing on the presidential nomination primary ballot, or sending delegates to the national convention supporting, a candidate who is ineligible to hold office.”
Trump immediately responded on Truth Social, posting, "Ridiculous 14th Amendment lawsuit just thrown out by Minnesota Supreme Court. Congratulations to all who fought this HOAX!"
As I stated above, all but one case that has made its way into the courtroom so far has been tossed by the presiding judge.
At some point, however, there will be a liberal judge and appeals court as well as a state Supreme Court that will allow this to happen, which is when the case will go before our Supreme Court for a final decision on the matter.
I would push all-in on the ruling falling in Donald Trump’s favor. If not a unanimous decision, it would at least fall 6-3.
They will keep trying, however, and they will keep wasting time and money to push this utterly ridiculous narrative.
