In latest left-wing assault on democracy, Illinois REMOVES Trump from primary ballot
By Ethan Huff // Mar 01, 2024

Donald Trump's name will not appear on Illinois' Republican primary ballot, Cook County Judge Tracie Porter has decided.

Porter reportedly ordered local election officials to strike Trump's name from the running, effective March 1. Trump's legal team was given just two days in between the ruling and its effective date to appeal.

The ruling stems from the actions that occurred on Jan. 6, 2021, when Trump, according to Porter, led a "riot" at the United States Capitol. This, she says, disqualifies him from seeking reelection in the Land of Lincoln.

Citing the 14th Amendment's Insurrection Clause, Porter says it is only fair that Trump be disqualified because he "engaged in insurrection or rebellion" against the nation.

With the Illinois state primary race set to kick off on March 19, some Illinois voters wanted to see Trump banned from it. They filed a formal objection with the state election board, pointing to his alleged "participation in the Jan. 6, 2021 [sic] events."

"While officials later voted unanimously to retain his name on the GOP ballot, the move prompted a legal challenge from the voters' lawyers, who presented the same argument to the court," reports explain about what transpired.

Illinois is now the third state – Colorado and Maine also did this – seeking to block Trump from being nominated as the Republican candidate for president in 2024, even though he is leading by a longshot.

It's all up to the Supreme Court

Try as they might to stop Trump, Illinois, Colorado and Maine will have to submit to whatever the Supreme Court ultimately decides on the matter. All three state rulings are being appealed to SCOTUS, which initially did not want to address the matter but has since signaled that it might take up the issue after all.

Earlier this month, a majority of the Supreme Court's justices questioned whether state officials even have the constitutional authority to apply the Insurrection Clause to a presidential candidate.

Liberal justice Elena Kagan questioned "why a single state should decide who gets to be president of the United States," while conservative-leaning Justice Amy Coney Barrett said much the same.

"It just doesn't seem like a state call," Justice Barrett commented.

So far, Trump has swept every GOP primary contest that has been held, including in Michigan, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina where he was the overwhelming victor.

The former president still has to contend with criminal cases in multiple states, including one involving an alleged hush-money scheme with porn star Stormy Daniels. Trump is also accused of improperly handling classified material.

In all of the cases, Trump denies wrongdoing and claims innocence. In his view, all of them are politically motivated at their core.

"One man, Biden, illegally put in the White House. Another man, Trump, illegally kept out of the White House. And it is all done in plain view with the blessing of the Supreme Court. It's all too far gone to be saved," one commenter wrote about the circus of corrupt politics that has come to dominate U.S. affairs.

"Americans wonder why they do not get good representation yet do nothing when their political process is hijacked right in front of them," wrote another with sheer wonder as to how and why Americans allow this type of thing to continue.

"They think they can 'vote' their way out of the problem in a totally hijacked political system where the law does not apply to one party but does to the other."
