Bukele says, thanks to Colorado banning Trump, the US lost its ability to lecture anyone about “democracy”…
By News Editors // Dec 22, 2023

The “shining city on a hill” has lost power, both literally and figuratively. The United States has gone overboard in its efforts to stop an outsider from returning to the White House. The campaign to remove Trump from the political landscape has become such an obsession that it’s led the uni-party regime to reveal their true draconian plot. The US isn’t the utopia of so-called “democracy” it claims to be. We are no different from any other country that weaponizes its systems to take out political adversaries. This anti-American approach has led El Salvador President Nayib Bukele to criticize the United States, stating we have lost our right to lecture anyone about “democracy” ever again. While we’d argue the US lost this privilege long ago, when it began detaining political prisoners like the January 6 patriots, Douglass Mackey, and indicting President Trump, Bukele’s assessment is undeniably spot-on.

But it’s not just President Bukele who’s expressing outrage. Professor Turley is absolutely incensed by this anti-American action by the activist justices on the Colorado Supreme Court.

The Messenger:

The Colorado Supreme Court has issued an unsigned opinion, making history in the most chilling way possible. A divided court barred Donald Trump from appearing on the 2024 presidential ballot.

For months, advocates have been filing without success in various states, looking for some court to sign off on a dangerous, novel theory under the Constitution’s 14th Amendment. They finally found four receptive jurists on one of the bluest state supreme courts in the land.

Even on a court composed entirely of justices appointed by Democratic governors, Colorado’s Supreme Court split 4-3 on the question. The majority admitted that this was a case “of first impression” and that there was “sparse” authority on the question. Yet, the lack of precedent or clarity did not deter these justices from making new law to block Trump from running. Indeed, the most controlling precedent appears to be what might be called the Wilde Doctrine.

In their zealous obsession to exclude President Trump from the political arena, the activist justices relied on an obscure provision in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, originally intended to prevent Confederate soldiers from serving in Congress. This is desperation on a level we never thought we’d see in this country.

In his novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde wrote that “the only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.” The four Colorado justices just ridded themselves of the ultimate temptation and, in so doing, put this country on one of the most dangerous paths in its history.

The court majority used a long-dormant provision in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment — the “disqualification clause” — that was written after the Civil War to bar former Confederate members from serving in the U.S. Congress.

As Turley explains, January 6th was not a “revolution.” Let’s be realistic; the majority of those present were equipped with nothing more than water bottles and fanny packs. How does one take over the United States with such weapons? This incident was a three-hour melee, which many suspect, for good reason, was instigated and orchestrated by the FBI.

January 6, 2021, was many things — and all of them bad. However, it was not an insurrection. I was critical of Trump’s speech to a mob of supporters that day, and I rejected his legal claims to stop the certification of the 2020 presidential election in Congress. However, it was a protest that became a riot, not a rebellion.

This level of desperation and activism really raises further questions about 2020. If these so-called “justices” are willing to take such an anti-American stance today, it begs the question of what they might have done four years ago, armed with a “pandemic” and a flood of sketchy mail-in ballots.

The bottom line is this: the United States government, in its fervor to erase President Trump, has shown that it’s no different from the communist-run regimes of North Korea, Cuba, or Russia. As President Bukele perfectly expressed, the US has lost its moral high ground—“ground” we never truly owned, but merely occupied under false pretenses.
