Reaction Continues to Pour in Over CO Court’s Shock Decision to Bar Trump From Ballot, RFK Jr. Slams

Published December 19, 2023

The shocking decision by the Colorado Supreme Court Tuesday that aims to keep former President Donald Trump off the ballot for the GOP presidential primary in the state sent shockwaves across the world as angry critics continue to slam the opinion and argue that real democracies don’t work this way.


RedState’s Sister Toldjah brought you reactions earlier from Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former New York congressman Lee Zeldin, New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, House Speaker Mike Johnson, and more:

Meanwhile, entrepreneur and presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy challenged his GOP rivals to effectively boycott the Colorado primary if the decision stands:

Even former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, also a presidential candidate and no fan of Donald Trump, slammed the opinion:

Now RFK Jr. weighed in Tuesday evening, pointing out that we call countries that play these kinds of political games undemocratic:

Speaking of foreign countries, El Salvador’s president Nayib Bukele ripped us over our hypocrisy, posting to X, “The United States has lost its ability to lecture any other country about “democracy.”

The president of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, wrote a long post pointing out that we’ve stooped to the level of countries we used to excoriate; here’s his conclusion:


The Democratic court majority, based solely on its partisan hatred of Trump, ruled to deprive countless Colorado voters who support Trump of the right to vote for the candidate of their choice for president. What an outrage!

What has happened in Colorado would not be out of place in Russia, Iran, China or Venezuela: a summary kangaroo court proceeding to lawlessly bar a disfavored political opponent from office.  The US Supreme Court can’t act soon enough to tamp down this act of judicial sedition.

Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie weighed in on the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to knock former President Trump off the state’s ballot, arguing voters, not the courts, should decide if Trump should be “prevented” from being reelected to the White House.

“What I will say is I do not believe Donald Trump should be prevented from being President of the United States, by any court,” Christie said in a statement Tuesday. “I think he should be prevented from being the President of the United States by the voters of this country.”

Christie said he doesn’t believe “it’s good” for the U.S. if Trump is kept off the ballot by a court.

“I think it’s bad for the country if that happens,” Christie said. “Now, the other reason I believe that is because, you know, he will have had to incite insurrection, be a part of an insurrection for him to be excluded. There’s been no trial of him on that.”

Trump is currently facing charges from the Department of Justice related to his alleged efforts to stay in power after losing the 2020 presidential election, which included blocking the certification of 2020 election votes.

The trial is slated to begin March 4, though Trump is attempting to have the case tossed out on the grounds he has presidential immunity from federal prosecution.

The Colorado Supreme Court issued a ruling Tuesday night arguing Trump should be prevented from appearing on the state’s Republican primary ballot because of his alleged role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is vowing to withdraw his name from the Colorado primary ballot unless former President Trump is reinstated following the state’s historic Supreme Court ruling on Tuesday declaring him ineligible for office.

“This is what an *actual* attack on democracy looks like: in an un-American, unconstitutional, and *unprecedented* decision, a cabal of Democrat judges are barring Trump from the ballot in Colorado,” Ramaswamy reacted on X. “Having tried every trick in the book to eliminate President Trump from running in this election, the bipartisan Establishment is now deploying a new tactic to bar him from ever holding office again: the 14th Amendment.”

“I pledge to *withdraw* from the Colorado GOP primary unless Trump is also allowed to be on the state’s ballot, and I demand that Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, and Nikki Haley to do the same immediately – or else they are tacitly endorsing this illegal maneuver which will have disastrous consequences for our country,” he wrote.

The Colorado Supreme Court’s disqualification, which was made under the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, cited Trump’s conduct during the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

Tuesday’s 4-3 ruling is stayed until January 4 because of likely appeals. Three justices on the Colorado Supreme Court dissented.

“We do not reach these conclusions lightly,” the court’s majority wrote. “We are mindful of the magnitude and weight of the questions now before us. We are likewise mindful of our solemn duty to apply the law, without fear or favor, and without being swayed by public reaction to the decisions that the law mandates we reach.”

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
