Dems’ effort to bar Trump from running again is real, says Bauer
A conservative activist says Democrats want to use a section of the 14th Amendment to keep Donald Trump and other conservatives from being able to run for office.
Last Thursday (January 6), President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris – with the assistance of a pro-Biden media – took the opportunity to continue pushing a narrative that what happened at the U.S. Capitol a year earlier was an “insurrection.”
“This wasn’t a group of tourists,” Biden stated during his speech. “This was an armed insurrection.” Other leading Democrats using the term included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Gary Bauer, chairman of the Campaign for Working Families, says “insurrection” is key for the Democrats’ narrative.
“Why do they keep using that word? They’re using that word because the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, passed after the Civil War, prohibits anybody who engaged in insurrection against the United States from holding office the rest of their lives or even running for office,” he explains to AFN.
Specifically, Section 3 of the 14th Amendment states:
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Bauer is convinced there’s a very serious goal in all the January 6 rhetoric tossed around.
“[They are hoping] to legally disqualify former President Trump and multiple conservative members of Congress from running for re-election,” he states, “and by doing that [they would be] disenfranchising one half of this country.”
Bauer explains his last statement: “… Right now, the polling shows if the election were held today, Donald Trump beats Joe Biden by at least five points – so, this has got a very serious goal … and it ought to frighten all Americans who believe in the rule of law.”
He adds that he suspects a contingent of left-wing constitutional lawyers are ready to push the narrative further and begin filing for disqualification of Trump and other conservatives in Congress. According to one report, some congressional Democrats – among them Reps. Jerrold Nadler (New York), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Florida), and Jamie Raskin (Maryland) – have approached a constitutional expert at Harvard Law School, inquiring about the best way to apply the 14th Amendment to former President Trump.

Notes from the Editor
I have said since the impeachment attempts against Trump; the Democrats see Trump as such a threat, they will violate any constitutional protection, will lie, cheat and steal, all justified in their mind to do away with a man they see as the greatest threat to their power in the world.
Trump is seen as such a threat, not only in America but also in politicians worldwide. The world democracies are willing to sacrifice what is the norm with international politics to rid the world of him.
We can then go to dictatorships that found Trump a threat, such as China. You have the perfect unity of world power brokers who know having Trump ever get back in power is not only a threat to the politicians in America, who work hand in hand with other world leaders but his coming back to power could encourage others to do the same, to buck the system and stand up to the tyranny we have disguised as democracy.
Make no mistake; if you voted for Trump or supported him in any way, you are equally seen as the enemy, one that does not deserve rights, you are the reason someone like Trump was able to come into the office and expose the corruption we have in our seat of power.
This is why the Democrats are desperate to continue the narrative of an insurrection. It does not matter that the FBI said there is no evidence of this; if none exists, they can create it.
This is driving the voting act, the Filibuster removal; they are all being pushed to enable the Democrats to push through their ultimate grab for power, the voting act they are trying to push. This will enable them to hold on to power; they can then set in motion the second part of their plan, to use the 14th Amendment to stop Trump or any conservative from running for office, claiming they were part of sedition that never happened.
