  1. So somehow you’d like to draw a connection between the person you call a “far left” governor and the judge who seems somewhat pro law and ordered who happened to resign for unknown reasons? I would call that either grasping at straws or really bad journalism.

    1. The New Mexico Democrats are trying to kick Trump off the ballot here in New Mexico therefore denying the right to vote to thousands of New Mexicans. This fascist move must be stopped. New Mexicans rights must not be violated.

      1. Maybe I missed something but I don’t think they’re actually trying to do so because there’s no way that Trump is going to win in New Mexico anyway. It’s a safe Blue State so stop spreading misinformation. And by the way the legal reason for barring Trump from the ballot is contained within the Constitution.

    2. Really bad journalism? What the Piñon Post puts out has absolutely nothing to do with “journalism”, either good or bad. It’s nothing more than right-wing propaganda.

  2. Is he trying run before he gets tangled up in ANOTHER Loserjan scam, or, He’s already dirty and wants to be able make a plea bargain from the sidelines..

  3. “And by the way the legal reason for barring Trump from the ballot is contained within the Constitution”.
