Call Me Suspicious But I Smell A Swamp

By now, you’ve probably heard of the efforts by certain states to remove Trump from the 2024 presidential ballot. Rhode Island is the most recent state to reject that effort. This rejection comes after similar dismissals from Florida, Colorado, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Michigan, and the District of Columbia. There are eighteen more states considering denying Trump on the ballot. The reason is Trump supposedly engaged in insurrection due to his actions related to the January 6th protest at the capital.

The disqualification decree comes from Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which bars people from holding office if they have engaged in insurrection or rebellion. This Section was enacted to prevent members of the Confederacy from the Civil War from running for office.

As it pertains to the court cases to remove Trump, I assumed this was another avenue the Swamp was using to derail the Trump train. It was a reasonable assumption when one considers the various bogus indictments that have been leveled at him by various corrupt states attorneys like Latitia James and Jack Smith.

At present, there is only one individual filing all these cases through various law firms. Supposedly a Republican presidential candidate from Texas, John Anthony Castro is the man filing these frivolous suits. I say supposedly Republican because until 2020 Castro was a Democrat, which would include the time Trump was in the White House. My suspicion radar was piqued, despite the fact my late father always called me a suspicious bast***.
