Republicans Threaten to Throw Biden Off the Ballot in Missouri... and Florida

The left is rigging the election on the pretext claim that Trump tried (and failed) to rig one first. Or rather, the claim that he attempted to un-rig the 2020 election that they had worked so hard to "fortify."


Republicans are calling for President Joe Biden to be removed from the 2024 primary ballot as former President Donald Trump is facing challenges to remove him from ballots in multiple states.

As challenges are brought to disqualify Trump from 2024 GOP primary ballots in more than 30 states for allegedly instigating an insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021, Republicans are suggesting that Biden should be removed from the ballot in response, but because of the increased volume of illegal immigrants entering the U.S. through the southern border.

The challenges against Trump have been made under the insurrection clauses of the 14th Amendment, a Civil War-era amendment that hasn't previously been used to disqualify a presidential candidate, Axios reported. The insurrection clauses do not specify whether a criminal conviction is necessary as a prerequisite. There have been candidates -- albeit on the fringes -- who have appeared on presidential ballots despite criminal convictions. Lyndon LaRouche ran his 1992 campaign from behind prison bars after a fraud conviction, and more famously, Eugene V. Debs ran his 1920 campaign from prison after being convicted of sedition. He garnered nearly a million votes.

...

Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft (R), who is running for governor, posted on X on Friday following the Supreme Court taking up the Colorado appeal, saying the same standard should be applied to Biden as Trump.

"What has happened in Colorado & Maine is disgraceful & undermines our republic," Ashcroft wrote. "While I expect the Supreme Court to overturn this, if not, Secretaries of State will step in & ensure the new legal standard for @realDonaldTrump applies equally to @JoeBiden!"

Missouri state Sen. Bill Eigel (R), who is also running for governor, announced on Friday that he plans to introduce legislation that would disqualify Biden from the Missouri ballot.

"By the Democrats' own standard, Joe Biden should be immediately disqualified and removed from the ballot for the 'aid and comfort' he has given our enemies," Eigel said in a press release, citing the treason clause in Article III of the U.S. Constitution.

"Our country is being invaded, because Joe Biden has swung our southern border wide open. President Biden has allowed more than 8 million people to stroll across our border illegally, causing more harm to this country than any other president in American history," the state senator continued.

...

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who is running in the GOP presidential primary race against Trump, said on Friday that he's looking at blocking Biden from the ballot.

"This is just going to be a tit for tat and it's just not gonna end well," DeSantis said. "You could make a case -- and I'm actually looking at this in Florida now -- could we make a credible case" to block Biden from the ballot "because of the invasion of 8 million. And again, I don't think that's the right way to do it."

...

Last month, following Colorado removing Trump from the ballot, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) also suggested that Biden be removed from the ballot.

"Seeing what happened in Colorado tonight ... makes me think -- except we believe in democracy in Texas -- maybe we should take Joe Biden off the ballot in Texas for allowing 8 million people to cross the border since he's been president, disrupting our state far more than anything anyone else has done in recent history," Patrick said.


Even the sad weakling "severely conservative" betrayer Mitt Romney is telling Democrats that their endless celebration of the Victory of January 6th is "a dead political horse."


Utah Senator Mitt Romney warned President Joe Biden against campaigning on Donald Trump's actions relating to the Jan 6 attack on Congress in an interview this week, arguing that voters are weary of conversations about it.

...


"Jan 6 will be four years old by the election. People have processed it, one way or another," he said. "Biden needs fresh material, a new attack, rather than kicking a dead political horse."

His comments put the incumbent president in an awkward spot. Mr Biden is running for re-election despite his own cratering poll numbers, which show him losing support among key parts of his voter coalition including younger voters and people of colour. His likely opponent for the general election is none other than Mr Trump, who remains the frontrunner for the Republican nomination heading in to the Iowa caucuses this weekend.

It's not just a dead political horse, but another desperately dishonest ones: Despite the claims of the Democrat-Media Junta that Trump planned to join "his troops" at the Capitol and seize power, just-released Secret Service documents show he never had any plan to go to the Capitol at all.

It has become one of the enduring messages of the House Democrats' final report on the Jan. 6 riot: Donald Trump had a plan and an intention to go directly to the U.S. Capitol to join those disrupting the certification of the 2020 election results.

"The Committee's principal concern was that the President actually intended to participate personally in the January 6th efforts at the Capitol, leading the attempt to overturn the election either from inside the House Chamber, from a stage outside the Capitol, or otherwise," the committee wrote in its final report in December, 2022.

"The Committee regarded those facts as important because they are relevant to President Trump's intent on January 6th. There is no question from all the evidence assembled that President Trump did have that intent," it added.

Lawmakers, pundits and journalists have all echoed that line in the months before and after the report's release.

"I imagine that he thought that he would enter like Mussolini being carried on the shoulders of his supporters and enter the Capitol," Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., said, comparing Trump to Italy's fascist leader during World War II.

In his speech at Valley Forge on Friday reviving his argument that Trump and MAGA supporters pose a threat to democracy, President Joe Biden pointedly avoided making the claim. In fact, he took the opposite tact and suggested a cowardly Trump declined to join his supporters storming the Capitol.

"He promised he would right them -- right them. Everything they did, he would be side by side with them. Then, as usual, he left the dirty work to others. He retreated to the White House," Biden said.

Such conflicting portrayals may be confusing to voters. That confusion is also rooted in an undisputed fact: Trump never actually went to the Capitol after his speech on the Ellipse.

The House Democrats' claims are based on two pieces of testimony. Some Trump aides recalled to the committee the 45th president mentioning in a meeting on Jan, 4, 2021, that he might want to go to the Capitol.

And then former aide Cassidy Hutchinson Madison Cornbread claimed in a disputed account based on hearsay that on the way back from his speech Trump lunged at the driver of the presidential limo to commandeer it and take it to the Capitol. The Secret Service and Trump deny that happened, and no evidence has emerged to validate Hutchinson's claim. That did not stop the account from making its way into mainstream media.

The Democratic Party's narrative is further undercut by internal Secret Service documents reviewed by Just the News, which show there was no plan heading into the Jan. 6 event to take Trump to the Capitol.

He didn't go, and there was never a plan to go.

But the media which will get you deplatformed for "misinformation" continues lying, claiming he was going to cross the Mall like it was the Rubicon and crown himself as emperor.


Meanwhile, Michelle Obama proclaims herself "so terrified" over a possible Republican victory in 2024.

She also beats the dead political horse of January 6th, claiming that Our Precious Democracy is at stake.

No, not from the invasion that our treasonous "president" has invited to our shores.

Over a failed riot three years ago.

"I am terrified about what could possibly happen," Obama said of the 2024 race in a Monday episode of Jay Shetty's "On Purpose" podcast.

"Because our leaders matter. Who we select, who speaks for us, who holds that bully pulpit -- it affects us in ways that sometimes, I think, people take for granted," she said when asked to name some of her fears that keep her awake.

"The fact that people think that: 'Government, does it really even do anything?' And I'm like, 'Oh my God, does government do everything for us,'" Obama, 59, continued. "And we cannot take this democracy for granted. And sometimes, I worry that we do."

"Those are the things that keep me up," she said.

Democrats are terrified that black voters are abandoning them, so they've instructed their most elderly partisans to get out there and terrify black voters so they'll vote as ordered.

Rep. James Clyburn, an early Biden supporter who propelled him to victory in South Carolina, now says he is 'very concerned' with the president's standing with the black community.

Clyburn was asked on CNN about President Joe Biden's African American approval ahead of a Biden trip to Clyburn's home state on Monday.

'I'm not worried -- I'm very concerned,' the South Carolina Democrat said.

...

My problem is that we have not been able to break through that MAGA wall in order to get to people exactly what this president has done,' Clyburn said.

...


...

Former President Barack Obama recently told Biden about the concerns he has with the structure of his reelection campaign, according to reports by the Washington Post and Politico.

Obama reportedly grew 'animated' at a lunch with Biden before the holidays about the threat of Trump's possible return to power.

He reportedly told Biden that his campaign lacked authoritative decision makers in key states who didn't have to clear everything with the White House.

Clyburn raised the bloody shirt and claimed Trump -- who had barely started his election campaign in 2015 -- was "tied" to the racist shooting at the AME church in Charleston.

"Is it fair to tie in any way what happened at the Emanuel AME Church to Donald Trump?" Tapper asked Clyburn "Donald Trump had barely launched his campaign when that attack happened."

"I think it is very clear that Donald Trump's utterances way back before Charlottesville or at the time of Charlottesville ties him to what happened at Mother Emanuel," Clyburn claimed. "The fact of the matter is, that young man went into that church's basement, joined with those worshipers in Bible study, and murdered them."

"And he said at the time that he was attempting to create a race war. But the people of Charleston, South Carolina, the families of the affected victims all came together to get beyond hate and reach out to help continue this pursuit of a more perfect union," he continued. "Donald Trump looked at those people in Charlottesville and said that there were good people on both sides. And those people were uttering things like, 'Jews will not replace us.' That is a religion. The AME Church Emanuel, that is religion. And Donald Trump has said things in support of those activities that ties him closely to what happened at Mother Emanuel."

No word whether or not the Democrats are responsible for the thousands and thousands of murders and assaults committed by blacks against whites, by relentlessly dehumanizing white people and convincing some blacks that "liberation" from "white supremacy" justifies a code of "By Any Means Necessary."

Okay, so that's the standard. The rules are simple:

1. Project your malice onto a popular opponent
2. Accuse the popular opponent as being guilty of bad things you don't like
3. Immediately group all supporters - even casual supporters or just mere non-detractors - in with the popular opponent
4. Pursue collective punishment

This is all quite straightforward and quite old. It's how industrial-scale slaughter happens. Genocide, democide, whatever-cide.

There is a real chance of it happening in Missouri. Our state has some fairly based people in the executive branch.

Now, Texas...I don't know. Patrick's words sound more like hot air. And DeSantis probably won't do it given that he's running for POTUS; it has too much of the look of a conflict of interest.

But if either state actually did it--more so than Missouri, which is redder and has fewer electoral votes--that would be a big deal.

The idiotic throw Trump of the ballot means that the GOP uniparty members themselves are at risk. If that premise is blessed by Scotus, imagine all the fun in the states where campaigns are based on kicking people off the ballot rather than campaigning.

That is why the GOP is threatening Biden, not to help Trump, but to preserve their grifting opportunities. Lawfare is mostly done by leftists and GOPe are at risk especially in blue and purple states from being tossed off the ballot for various spurious reasons.

64 Re-po:
After warning the public for years how dangerous Trump and his supporters are for democracy imagine the chaos that's going to engulf the country in November whether Trump's on the ballot or not. Chaos that requires drastic measures by the junta to "maintain the peace" and protect said democracy.

The left: "We tried to warn you about the threat Trump posed, but you wouldn't listen. You must suffer the consequences."

All the leftist hand wringing is an act. They want Trump on the ballot so they can beat us over our heads with another insurrection and/or threat to their democracy that requires "extreme measures."

They're in the process of trying to get Trump kicked off of ballots in states he had to win. They'd gladly exchange removing Biden fron FL, for removing Trump from WI.

What they need to do is start prosecuting everyone connected to Biden, and doing it in states where they can get convictions.

4. Pursue collective punishment

It is generally quite stupid to try to push a minority group to try to slaughter the majority.

Minority groups can of course rule majority groups for a time but only at the expense of not riling them up too bad to go bug nuts crazy.

Rwanda massacres occurred because the Hutu were the majority and had a long list of grievances against the minority Tutsis. Then you had the whole Congo region adjacent that created all sorts of spillover violence. That is one case where I specifically blame teh Belgian royal family for their hideous mismanagement of the Congo.

It was a luxurious loss, however not entirely his fault. The state was redistricting, and the black Democrats needed to make sure they kept their seat, so they basically gobbled up much of his 2nd District territory, and added it to District 1.

By the time they were done carving him out, taking much of South City away from him, he was left with a district that was very much more Republican leaning, and I think Ann Wagner took the race, as she was moved from District 3 to 2, with the new map.

All wars end eventually when enough people get tired of killing and being killed. That is where Hobbes is wrong--anarchy itself is an unstable situation and order of some sort--usually despotism starts at the lower levels and then scales up.

Some wars end quick, some can take a long while and usually foreign interference has a role in continuing or ending civil disorder and some, like in the Middle East, smolder on and off for centuries.

I suspect the black community is largely non-committal towards voting in general, especially in urban centers, because why bother?

The idea that some politician didn't "speak to the black community's needs" is nonsense. They have the same political needs as any white person - a good economy, low crime, etc. There are no "special" black needs that are different. They are just people.

GOP campaign strategy was perfected in the 90's and 00's which culminated in the GWB administration. The idea was low voter participation, negative ads to drive casual voters away, and strokes to different identified groups such as soccer moms which promising something different to evangelicals and so on. Media based campaigning aimed at turning the base out.

The Dems after losing using that approach went broad in 2008 and casual voters helped sweep in a massive Dem majority. Some of those same casual voters then hated what the Dems did and gave the GOP historic gains in the House. Then the GOP did its best to piss off and ignore casual voters because they might ticket split in elections. GOP campaign staffers purposefully used and abused groups like the Tea Party in order to eliminate common demands that would affect their donor pool and candidates.

It shouldn't be that hard, but the R party doesn't seem particularly interested in fighting this fight.

It's less that they don't "speak to their needs" but that they simply don't talk to the black community at all. They start an urban office six months out of the election, pass out some flyers, and then leave, at best.


Okay, let's assume I forgot is correct. If blacks truly wanted only the same things as everyone else, there's no need to set up special offices and pander to them. The problem is that they want special treatment, which the Dems are only too glad to provide, but which our base would not find acceptable. Until that changes one way or another, we won't attract most of the black vote.

But he *tried* to do the scary things they feared and in some narrow cases, he succeeded.

Forget what they *say* they fear because they don't. What they actually fear is an outsider disrupting their game of power and pillage. Trump humiliated them on foreign policy, on economic and trade policy, on the border, on energy. He outperformed them and then gauchely gloated about it to his base. He had to be destroyed for that - not just for doing it, but for the gloating. The peasants mustn't get uppity. Any symbol of uppity peasants must be snuffed out.

Which is why, circling back to the point that started this, if there were honest vote counts, you'd no doubt find any number of voters who are voting for free stuff. Everyone wants free stuff, and one party keeps promising it.

But the vast majority of people who don't vote, don't do so because NOBODY IS TRYING TO REACH THEM.

Nope, they won't. Elites might avoid it somewhat but the whole general population is going to suffer a massive hit to lifestyle. Simply put, the massive debt of the fedgov is going to require either formally repudiating it, inflating it away, or severe massive spending cuts to sacred cows like Defense, social security, welfare, etc.

Right now the elites have chosen to inflate it away which reduces the value of the dollars spent on programs, imposes costs on savers and investors, but keeps widespread civil unrest quelled for now.
