(Republican Party News) – Over the course of the last 6 years, especially throughout the so-called pandemic, Democrats have proven they are tyrants, through and through. It’s a wonder there are Americans who continue to support and vote for them.
They have hatched plan after plan to keep Republicans from office and have routinely attacked political opponents in one form or another. All of their anti-American behavior has largely gone on unchecked thanks to the well-formed and pervasive Deep State.
Fortunately, not all has been lost quite yet. A federal judge has just put up a roadblock in the Democrats’ latest scheme to keep GOP candidates out of office.
Democrats were attempting to accuse any Republican with questions or concerns about the 2020 election to the Jan. 6, 2021, incident at the Capitol and thus accuse them of being “insurrectionists.”
Though it might not seem like a big deal, Republicans have been called far worse, it’s actually much deeper than just name-calling. Democrats’ plan was to call on a Civil War era constitutional provision that would disqualify anyone who engages in “insurrection” from holding any public office.
The Dems tried this tactic recently against US Rep. Madison Cawthorn, a Republican from North Carolina who has been vocal about his doubts over the 2020 election.
A federal judge, however, has now issued an injunction against the North Carolina State Board of Elections, which had claimed to have the power to accuse Cawthorn of “insurrection.”
The ruling prohibits the board from hearing challenges on the basis of insurrection, according to WND.
Officials with the Bopp Law Firm, who have been working with Cawthorn, explained that a group organized in the state against Cawthorn filed a complaint with the state board demanding he be prevented from running for his congressional seat based on the accusation of so-called “insurrection.”
“They alleged that Rep. Cawthorn does not meet the federal constitutional requirements for a member of the U.S. House of Representatives because he engaged in ‘insurrection or rebellion’ against the United States on January 6th. Rep. Cawthorn vigorously denies that he ‘engaged in insurrection or rebellion’ against the United States, and his suit sought to enjoin the NCSBE from employing unconstitutional and unlawful provisions of North Carolina election law to remove him from the ballot as a candidate.”
WND reported, “The judge held that due to the substantial likelihood that Cawthorn’s candidacy will be significantly impacted by the challenges before the upcoming primary, it was proper for the court to determine whether the board could proceed with the challenge.”
The ruling stated that the state law violated federal law to the extent challenges are based upon the “insurrection” clause of the Fourteenth Amendment because Congress removed that amendment’s application to any current members of Congress in The Amnesty Act of 1872, according to the Bopp Law Firm.
“It is a great honor and privilege to run for office, and it is also a right protected under the Constitution,” said Cawthorn. “I love this country and have never engaged in, or would ever engage in, an insurrection against the United States. Regardless of this fact, liberal Democrats attempted to defeat democracy by having state bureaucrats, rather than the people, choose who will represent North Carolina’s 11th District in Congress. The group behind the challenge to my candidacy promised it was just the first of many such challenges they had planned. By bringing this suit, I defended not only my rights, but the right of the people to democratically elect their representatives and the rights of other candidates who may be subjected to such tactics.”
James Bopp Jr., of the legal team, explained, “North Carolina’s law clearly violates federal law as applied to Rep. Cawthorn. We are pleased the court recognized this government overreach. But more fundamentally, we are pleased that the people of North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District will be the final voice to pick their representative, not state bureaucrats in Raleigh. The national implication for today’s victory is huge—liberal activists should be warned that such blatant attempts to subvert our democracy will be fought at every turn.”
As you can clearly see, the Democrats are anti-American tyrants. It is the American people who should determine who sits in Congress, not the Democrats and their warped “insurrection” narrative and radical agenda.
