Heading Toward Civil War: Efforts in New Hampshire and Florida to remove Trump from 2024 Election
The Daily Knight
Now that the indictments have backfired politically, the establishment is turning to the 14th Amendment to bar Trump from running for office.
New Hampshire Secretary of State David Scanlan (R) is consulting with the state’s attorney general to determine if the 14th Amendment of the Constitution could keep former President Donald Trump off the ballot in 2024.
“Secretary Scanlan will be conferring with the New Hampshire Attorney General and other legal counsel on this issue; however, he believes any action taken under this Constitutional provision will have to be based on Judicial guidance,” Scanlan’s communications director Anna Sventek told ABC News on Friday.
New Hampshire attorney Bryant Messner, whom Trump endorsed in the state’s 2020 Senate race, apparently brought up the subject of the 14th amendment to Scanlan and has even said he will sue to ensure Scanlan enforces the 14th Amendment.
“I really don’t view myself as turning on Trump, as odd as that sounds,” Messner told ABC News. “I love this country. I’ve served this country. I’ve taken an oath to this country. My sons are serving right now and I believe someone’s got to step up to defend the Constitution.”
“Someone needs to take some action legally so this thing can get in front of the Supreme Court sooner rather than later to interpret this section,” he added.
Scanlan said the January 6 protest was “a really unfortunate event in our history” but said he couldn’t determine if it qualifies as an “insurrection.”
“I view the violence as being a really unfortunate event in our history,” he said. “I don’t know that I’m really qualified to say whether that was an ‘insurrection’ or not. I think that is for the courts to decide.”
With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?
As Infowars reported this week, media outlets such as The Atlantic were highlighting legal groups calling for Trump to be disqualified from the 2020 election using Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.
“The disqualification clause operates independently of any such criminal proceedings and, indeed, also independently of impeachment proceedings and of congressional legislation,” wrote retired conservative federal judge J. Michael Luttig and Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Laurence Tribe.
“The clause was designed to operate directly and immediately upon those who betray their oaths to the Constitution, whether by taking up arms to overturn our government or by waging war on our government by attempting to overturn a presidential election through a bloodless coup.”
This comes as Trump’s popularity has only skyrocketed since receiving four criminal indictments over the last several months ranging from his retention of classified documents to his effort to get to the bottom of election fraud in Georgia.
Of course, Trump didn’t participate in an “insurrection,” because the protest that devolved into an FBI-staged riot was not an armed insurrection to begin with.
Additionally, Trump did not encourage or incite violence in any way. Rather, he cautioned supporters to “peacefully and patriotically” protest at the Capitol to air their grievances about the rigged 2020 election.
Florida Attorney files in Federal Court
Co-owner of Trending Politics, Collin Rugg, released the federal filings of Attorney Lawrence Caplan, a tax attorney from Palm Beach County, challenging that President Trump cannot legally be on the 2024 ballot because he “engaged in an insurrection.” While none of the charges circulating "Jan. 6" involved insurrection, the worst sedition and conspiracy charges on disrupting an official proceeding, Caplan requests the court rule on Section Three of the 14th Amendment, which would bar anyone guilty of insurrection from running for and holding public office.
Caplan, a biased liberal, took to The Hill to show what he thought of the President and why "someone had to take the lead" on this: “This is a scary, scary guy, and if he’s president, I think we’re all on the way to fascism,” he said. “There’s no law that says we have to remain a democracy forever.”
The President, nor anyone else for that matter, has not been charged with such a statute for inciting or participating in an insurrection to overthrow the government, but doesn't mean that George Soros backed Secretary of States and Attorneys won't illicitly use it anyway. If the Deep State and the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC say it was an insurrection, handpicked Grand Jurys and ignorant representatives will make it so.
Putting President Trump in prison, removing him from the ballot, and even as far as putting him in the ground are how far the Deep State is willing to interfere in the 2024 Election and prevent Donald Trump from returning to the White House. In all cases, the United States is heading straight toward open Civil War.
May God help us!
