Resolute: Nikki Second to ‘None,’ RNC Chair Stepping Down and SCOTUS Sits for Trump Ballot Case
“None of the Candidates” swamped Nikki in Nevada, Ronna’s gonna go (or is she?) and the Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments over whether Trump can be kicked off the ballot. Its 272 days until #2024Election and we are Resolute.
Big Day for Supreme Court: Hearing Arguments About Efforts to Remove Trump From Ballot Via 14th Amendment
On Thursday, the Supreme Court will be hearing oral arguments in Trump v. Anderson, hopefully settling once and for all whether Donald Trump can be kept off state election ballots via the 14th Amendment.
From coast-to-coast, orchestrators of election interference have been pushing this strategy against the GOP front-runner. They say Trump falls under the 14th Amendment Post-Civil War ban on federal candidates who have engaged in “insurrection” against the U.S., because of his actions on and leading up to J6. (Never mind that Trump has never been charged, let alone convicted of anything like insurrection.)
A vast majority of the states have already rejected the ploy. Then there’s Colorado, followed by Maine’s Secretary of State … and now Hawaii getting into the act. Trump has gone to the Supreme Court hoping to put an end to this effort once and for all.
Trump’s lawyers will get 40 minutes. Lawyers for the “voters” used to bring the suits will get 30, with Colorado’s Secretary of State getting a whopping 10 minutes.
Do the People decide who their candidates are, or do unelected judges and Soros-funded Secretaries of State acting at the behest of well-orchestrated anti-Democracy machines?
For the sake of the country, let’s pray in the battle between fair and lawfare it’s a SCOTUS sweep.
Nevada Primary: Nikki Haley Doubled Up by “None of the Above”
In Nevada, you had a primary Tuesday and the delegate-awarding caucuses tomorrow. Donald Trump wasn’t on the primary ballot. Just Nikki Haley, Mike Pence, Tim Scott and a few obscure candidates. And “None of These Candidates” beat Haley 2-to-1. Haley scored 30.8% of the vote to “None of These Candidates” 62.9%. “None of These Candidates” did offer a gracious victory speech.
Haley’s campaign manager insisted the former South Carolina governor had not spent a dime in Nevada, and declared the state’s caucus process “rigged.” Haley herself took a classier angle:
Even on our worst days, we are blessed to live in America. 🇺🇸 💙

Embattled RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Reportedly Set to Step Down, But She’s Denying It
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has reportedly agreed to step down. Ronna, long under heat from the base, told Donald Trump during a meeting this week at Mar-a-Lago that she was a “team player” and reportedly said would leave after the South Carolina primary.
However, McDaniel on Wednesday insisted “Nothing has changed. Rumors to the contrary are simply not true,” and that matters will be decided “after South Carolina.”
Trump himself suggested as much, saying on Truth Social he would “be making a decision the day after the South Carolina Primary as to my recommendations for RNC Growth,” but telling Newsmax McDaniel “knows” she has to step down.
After the 2022 election debacle, the RNC had its worst fund-raising year in a decade, and according to CBS News, entered 2024 with only $8 million on hand. A pittance in a presidential election year. There have also been questions about the RNC’s lavish spending. $250,000 on limos alone last year.
So who gets the chair? Fox Digital reports Trump is favoring North Carolina GOP chairman Michael Whatley for the gig. You’re also hearing calls for activist and registration guru Scott Pressler. The Stream’s John Zmirak is touting Jacob “QAnon Shaman” Chansley, but he would probably turn the job down.
Biden Tries Pinning Border Invasion on Trump, Trump Ad Responds
Remember all those times Joe Biden said the border was secure? Well, now that even he cannot ignore the millions of illegals invading our borders, he’s trying to flip the tables and blame Trump for the problem he has long denied even existed.
On Tuesday, in the wake of the failure of the Senate’s insane “border” bill, Biden declared, “Every day between now and November, the American people are gonna know that the only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican friends.”
The Trump camp isn’t having any of that, releasing a dagger of a campaign ad.

As predicted, that image of the cop-beating illegal giving America the finger was going to be stapled onto Biden’s forehead.
Til we meet again, stay Resolute!
