One judge just made a jaw-dropping decision about throwing Trump off the ballot

Democrats are pulling every trick in the book to win in 2020.

And one of their most diabolical plots involved removing Donald Trump from the ticket.

Now, this judge just made a jaw-dropping decision about throwing Trump off the ballot.

California Governor Gavin Newsome signed a bill into law requiring a candidate to disclose their tax returns if they wanted to appear on the state’s primary ballot.

The Trump campaign immediately sued.

Legal experts thought the President’s team had a strong case, and those beliefs were confirmed when a federal judge temporarily blocked the California law from going into effect.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

A federal judge ordered a temporary injunction Thursday against California’s first-in-the-nation law requiring candidates to disclose their tax returns for a spot on the presidential primary ballot, an early victory for President Trump but a decision that will undoubtedly be appealed by state officials.

U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England Jr. said he would issue a final ruling by the end of the month but took the unusual step of issuing the tentative order from the bench. He said there would be “irreparable harm without temporary relief” for Trump and other candidates from the law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in July.

England spent much of the court proceeding on the question of whether a long-standing federal financial disclosure law preempts any additional rules that a state could impose. The federal law, known as the Ethics in Government Act, or EIGA, was originally passed in 1978 and applies to a range of top federal officials. Trump has filed the required annual report, which provides an overview of his finances, most recently in May.

“Do we even need to get here if EIGA preempts” the new California law? England asked attorneys for the state. “Is that it?”

Democrats also fought for this law to hurt Republicans down ballot.

If Trump is not on the primary ballot, then Republican voters may not show up to vote.

Depressed Republican turnout would be a boon to Democrats.

That’s because of the state’s “jungle primary” where the top two vote-getters, regardless of party, advance to the general election.

Republicans not showing up to vote because Donald Trump wasn’t on the ballot could lead to a situation where Democrats are guaranteed of victory in Congressional and state legislative races because two Democrats emerged as the top two vote-getters.

This decision prevents that nightmare scenario from happening.

    I have been here in Ca. for 76 years and never saw anything as asinine as that law ‘ceptin up in Carmel Ca you could not drive an vehicle that originally had wheelcovers on them without them. That was in the early to mid sixties. Clint Eastwood changed that when he became mayor and changed laws.

    Sin is all over the USA. We as a nation has lost our first love. That is God Almighty the Father, Jesus Christ.

    People love sin more than God. And the USA will pay a big price for the nation sins.

    People voted for evil people that believe and think as they do.

    Hitler did the same thing with Children and the children even turned against their own parents.

    God is taking his hand off of this nation. If Trump is kicked out of office. Destruction is coming to America a lot
    sooner.

    One Day America will be destroyed because of her great sins.

    That would be hilarious if some federal judge ruled California’s 55 votes couldn’t be counted.

  6. R.L. Reynolds says:

    There are three constitutional requirements to be able to run/be president of the U.S.. Supplying tax returns is not one of them. States do not have the authority to individually override the Constitution for a federal election. They can only dictate for state elections, not federal. If they do, they run the risk of invalidating their federal election results, meaning no ones vote would be counted in a presidential election. This is just another case of an idiot thinking he is above the Constitution.

  7. And make sure it’s the urban dictionary meaning. ..

    Climate change and pollution have nothing to do with each other. You’re confusing two separate things like the little girl you admire, and most of the democrat party. CO2 is not a pollutant.
    Those dirty smokestacks the democrats show you in global warming articles are bogus.
    CO2 is colorless and leaves no residue. CO2 doesn’t cause asthma or lung cancer. It is not dirty, it has no odor, and plants live on it.

  9. Poor Greta. I felt so sorry for her. She is spreading propaganda for for scientist who think they can save the world. I saw the children taking a day off from school down in Frisco spreading their hate for our President. I feel it is a very sad thing to be using children to spread hatred of this kind for politicians that can’t do their own job. It is more important for our children to be in their class rooms than to be on the streets spreading hate towards anyone. California is in a big mess. People are blamong climate change and every other wrath that God is warning of. Get right down to it. He is angry at sin. The people of this state need to wake up. The wild fires should have been a wake up call. Folks it is goung to get worse. And when it does don’t blame our leaders. The ones to blame is ourselves. What are we teaching these young people?

    Scott27, How about B.O. (Obama) has TWO Social Security Numbers. And nothing happens to him.

    If we had Two Social Security Numbers we would go to JAIL.

    QUESTION IS? Why Obama DOES NOT HAVE HIS OWN SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER?

    Think about that!

  11. Steve Scoutaris says:

    I think the only reason Trump is not releasing his tax returns is just to mess with the democrats.
    I think Trump gets off on pissing his opponents off and giving them a hard time.
    He knows it drives the democrats nuts when he won’t cooperate with them, so that’s why he does it.
    Just my opinion

    What a silly creature you are Vasu.

  13. Steve Scoutaris says:

    I agree! Many illegals vote under the radar.
    And that’s why the democrats oppose voter ID.

  14. Hillary lost, get over it says:

    President Trump. Please unseal the brown clown’s records. We have a right to know who or what ran our country into the ground for 8 long years.

  15. Hillary lost, get over it says:

    Listen Vagina. Take your crap somewhere else. If we wanted to hear feces, we would simply squeeze your tiny head. If we wanted to smell feces, we’d just go to one of your demoncrap run cities, like San Franpoopsycle.

  16. Hillary lost, get over it says:

    The liberal scum sure are trying to provoke a war between us. They aren’t going to be happy until it happens. If the liberal candidate is better than Trump, why do they need to cheat to win?
