Democrat judges throw Republican candidates off ballot!

Democrats in a multitude of states have jumped on an election interference scheme developed by their party at the highest levels in Washington: Refuse to allow voters to vote for Donald Trump by claiming he’s an “insurrectionist” and preventing his name from being on the 2024 ballot.

Mostly, those schemes have failed in front of judges or elections officials, but the extremists in Colorado succeeded when an all-Democrat state court issued a split opinion removing Trump’s name and interfering in the election.

Same happened in Maine, where it was a Democrat official who made that decision, and the dispute now is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The concept, with slightly different details, already has proven to work in Oregon, though.

There, a state Supreme Court controlled by Democrats has ruled that Republican lawmakers who were absent from the statehouse – in protest of offensive legislative – now cannot run for office again.

The tactic is a common one, and often used by Democrats in various states. When in a minority, they boycott attending legislative sessions in order to deprive the majority of a quorum, meaning that those offending pieces of legislation cannot pass.

According to a report in the Western Journal, Republicans walked out on the legislative sessions for several weeks last year in protest against a bill promoting abortion and transgenderism, including body mutilating surgeries on children.

Those are two of the biggest issues for Joe Biden, who during his presidency has promoted them at all levels and attacked anyone who opposes the ideologies.

“The walkout came two years after a walkout by Democrats in the Texas legislature denied Republicans a quorum needed to conduct business and pass election legislation,” the report noted.

Those protests “received widespread Democratic support with no major consequences,” The difference in the Oregon situation was that voters had adopted an ambiguous plan that says any lawmaker with 10 or more unexcused absences shall be “disqualified” from holding office.

Since the Democrats in the majority determined the absences were unexcused, Secretary of State LaVonne Griffin-Valade announced she would not allow any off those who opposed the abortion-transgender mutilation promotion to be a candidate.

The report noted that of the 10, two retired and four had been elected to four-year terms, so they remain in office. The political party-based ruling affects only four.

The Western Journal explained Republican state Sen. Suzanne Weber, who remains in office, cited the partisan elements of the election interference.

“All members of the Oregon Supreme Court were appointed by Democrats, with all those who ruled on the case appointed by former Democratic Gov. Kate Brown,” the report said.

According to the report, the move could backfire on Democrats.

“Senate Minority Leader Tim Knopp, a Republican who can’t run this year because of the ruling, said the ruling will color the current legislative session because Republicans have nothing to lose by refusing to attend, denying Democrats a quorum,” the report said.
