If you can’t beat them, ban them. At least that’s what the Secretary of State of Maine has decided when she unilaterally decided to remove the leading candidate for President of the United States in 2024 from the Maine ballot. As Trump is booted from ballot, he is restored in another, the Colorado ballot, pending the SCOTUS appeal.
Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows made her decision based on the 14th Amendment, which bans “insurrectionists” from running for President. The major unconstitutional problem with her unhinged, seditious decision is Trump has never been charged with, let alone convicted of, “insurrection.” If anything, she joins the Colorado Supreme Court in committing an overt insurrectionist action, seeking to remove a candidate from the ballot purely to prevent them from winning in 2024.

She attempted to cover up for her public declaration that she no longer operates under the American rule of law, but instead is attempting to overthrow the republic and replace it with a one-party totalitarian state, saying, “I do not reach this conclusion lightly. Democracy is sacred … I am mindful that no Secretary of State has ever deprived a presidential candidate of ballot access based on Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment. I am also mindful, however, that no presidential candidate has ever before engaged in insurrection.”
Donald Trump has not engaged in insurrection, for the record, nor has he been charged or convicted of such an action. This woman should be immediately be removed from office, arrested, and charged with sedition and high crimes and misdemeanors against the American republic.
As the state’s Attorney General, Aaron Frey, belongs to the party of sedition, the Democratic Party, this insurrectionist Secretary is not going to have to worry about facing the charges she should be facing.
