“Democrats remain terrified of Donald Trump and will continue to do their worst to keep him from the ballot, where he has beaten them before. Political assassination attempts stretch from the near-comical to the deadly serious. The most current attempt calls back to one of the earlier ones. A handful of lawyers discovered that the 14th Amendment, hidden away in plain sight inside the Constitution, was actually designed to drive Trump from the ballot. … Left undiscussed is who determines whether J6 was an actual insurrection, let alone one on the same scale with the Civil War, and not some naughty MAGA cosplay with absolutely zero chance of altering the election results — not to mention the fact that Section 1 of the same Amendment mentions due process, of which this line of legal thinking includes none.” (09/18/23)
