(Liberty Bell) – Radical progressives are really going all out to try and prevent former President Donald Trump from being the Republican Party presidential nominee who will go toe-to-toe with President Joe Biden — as of now — for the White House. Liberal Democrats have thrown over 90 charges at him in four different indictments over the last year. What’s more, they previously tried to have Trump impeached and removed from office twice during his administration and are now attempting to have his name removed from the ballot in several states.
They are afraid of him. Why? Because Trump has a track record of doing what he says he’s going to do. And part of what he’s going to do is dismantle the deep state element within the Justice Department, neutralizing one of the best weapons the left currently has at their disposal.
However, as The Western Journal is reporting, efforts to scrub his name from the primary ballot are not going well. U.S. District Court Judge Gloria M. Navarro smacked down a lawsuit filed by John Anthony Castro to get the former president’s name removed from the ballot in Nevada. Judge Navarro did so without even talking about the merit of the suit’s claim: The allegation that Trump is banned from running for public office due to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.
The real kicker, which is probably causing leftists to blow steam out of their ears, is that Navarro is an Obama appointee. Ah, the fresh sting of betrayal, right? No, it’s not betrayal. It’s a judge doing her actual job, and that is quite refreshing.
“This is a politically charged question of significant interest to the American public,” the ruling went on to say.
“The ruling said Castro claims he would be damaged by Trump’s candidacy because he will be appearing on Nevada’s primary ballot, adding ‘the Court finds that Castro lacks standing, and the Court therefore lacks jurisdiction to hear this case,'” the report says.
“In rejecting his political competitor standing argument, courts have found that Castro improperly manufactured his standing merely to file this lawsuit,” the ruling continues.
81% of Democrats think President Trump’s name should be removed from the ballot.
Thought they were the “pro-Democracy” party?
Because nothing says “democracy” more than kicking someone off the ballot.

The ruling from Navarro included a quote from New Hampshire that also ruled against Castro saying, “evidence indicates that Castro is creating his own injury in order to manufacture standing to challenge Trump’s eligibility to run for president. Indeed, by his own admission, Castro declared as a candidate and paid the filing fee to show the impermissibility of Trump’s presidency.”
The judge’s ruling pointed out that, “In an Associated Press article that Castro invited the courts to consider, Castro is quoted as stating, ‘I’m not going to lie and pretend my candidacy is anything more than trying to enforce the United States Constitution, and that’s what I’m here to do.’”
Furthermore, it also stated that the two men aren’t even competing due to Castro running in the Nevada Republican primary race, while Trump is running in a GOP caucus and not the primary.

“Because Castro does not have standing to challenge Trump’s eligibility to run for president, the Court does not have jurisdiction to rule on the merits of this case,” the ruling disclosed.
Steven Cheung, a representative for the Trump campaign, proclaimed, “dismissal of another bogus, bad-faith, Crooked Joe Biden-engineered attempt to deprive Americans as a whole, and the voters of Nevada specifically, of their right to vote for the candidate of their choice is not only a victory for President Trump, but a victory for all Americans and the people of Nevada,” according to a piece published by Fox News.
“President Trump remains undefeated in federal court against these cynical efforts to interfere in the 2024 election. Courts in eleven states have now dismissed similar, pathetic, 14th Amendment ballot cases,” Cheung noted.
“Make no mistake, each and every one of these ‘ballot-challenges’ are blatant attempts to steal the election for Crooked Joe Biden and disenfranchise over 100 million American voters,” he added.
“President Trump is the leading candidate for not only the Republican primary, but the general election and his opponents are desperate. Rest assured that he will fight each and every one of these disgraceful attacks on American democracy, he will win, and we will all Make America Great Again,” the campaign representative remarked.
Just last month, the Colorado Supreme Court decided to boot Trump from the primary ballot, again, citing the 14th Amendment. This decision has been appealed and SCOTUS is set to hear the case on Feb. 8.
