Amendment 13 Removed

Note: Since I wrote this article, reputable Attorney Larry Becraft has presented proof that the Missing 13th was never ratifiied. The issue is certainly in a gray area. Forest


  Original 13th Amendment Is Missing

The original 13th Amendment to our Constitution has been illegally removed from publication. One intent of the Amendment was to prohibit the attorneys of powerful European bankers from holding office in America. During the confusion of the War of 1812,when our capital records building was burned, and the Civil War, the bankers and lawyers removed the 13th Amendment, replacing it with the Slave Amendment, which should be the 14th.

The missing 13th Amendment, called Article XIII, reads:

"If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain, any title of nobility or honor, or shall, without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them."

Note the words Title, Honor, Present, Pension or Emolument from any foreign Power, cease to be a Citizen, and incapable of holding office for either country. Those are very definite limitations with a profound sentence for violators - loss of Citizenship in the United States! If "honor" includes immunities and pensions, etc., all government employees will be under fire. This amendment certainly will cause a great shuffling sound in the areas of election donations (especially from non-residents), holding office, immunity from laws by government agents and agencies, titles of honor, and benefits legislators give themselves.

Of profound concern is President Clinton, who is violating Constitutional law by holding the office of President. A strict interpretation of the law will strip Clinton of his American citizenship. Both Clintons are attorneys. They could have known and they should have known.

A critical area is that of our government agencies usurping excessive power. Federal agents from the IRS, Federal Marshals, etc., have been disregarding warrants and jury trial and relentlessly breaking and entering private homes and businesses. These agencies must no longer be allowed to flagrantly defy our Constitutional law, assuming immunity from prosecution. Read "Income Tax Is Unconstitutional" (see below) and you will find the IRS is powerless and unconstitutional. They act on power usurped by our unconstitutional president much too similar to the dictators from whom our forefathers fled. In the past two years, three large airliners and one public building have been destroyed under questionable circumstances, killing hundreds of people, and each time our federal government sealed off the area and would not allow public or private peace officers, investigators or media onto the site. All remains were destroyed. Survivor witnesses just happened to commit suicide and were cremated, all without public investigation. Then there are the mysterious cases of Vincent Foster, Mena, and our government performing radioactive, etc., experiments on us without even telling us. With the original 13th Amendment, perhaps we people can force less secrecy in government.

Other influences require adjustment in our society. It appears unconstitutional to award judges with the title of "your honor", and "honorable" to our Congress Persons. Lawyers can no longer be immune from questioning and lawsuit in trials, nor can they use "Esquire" after their name or hold any office, for they and that title were a primary target of the 13th.

The 13th may outlaw foreign ownership in America, especially of banks and money. It may be unlawful to sell land, banks, etc. to foreigners. GATT and NAFTA may be illegal. Clarification could be of great benefit to us people.

It is a small wonder the bankers and lawyers removed the 13th Amendment. As you read the rest of the essays on this web site, you will realize that the billionaire banklords have us in an economic stranglehold and that their attorneys in and behind Congress twist our laws to benefit them.

The history leading to the original 13th Amendment reveals the banklords in the pie with their corrupt, sticky fingers. It seems that the powerful European bankers were attempting to control the new American government. In the Jay treaty, the U. S. Senate agreed in secret to pay the King George III of England 600,000 pounds sterling as reparations for the American Revolution. Congress ordered it not to be published, but Ben Franklin’s grandson published anyway. Upon reading it, an angry Congress passed the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798.

Against better American judgement, the United States Bank finally won out, and the European banklords were now on their way to complete control of America.

Lawyers planned to overthrow the new American government, increasing the need for the 13th Amendment. This fact is revealed in a book called 2 VA Law in the Library of Congress. Since attorneys were granted the nobility title of "esquire", and by English attorneys only, they were considered to be working with and for the powerful European bankers, who also were awarded the title of "esquire". Thus, esquire and attorneys were a major target of the 13th Amendment.

Forest Glen Durland obtained a certified copy of the Constitution containing the original 13th Amendment from the State of Maine Archives. It was printed in 1825. The original thirteen amendments were called articles: Article I, Article II, ... Article XIII. (see below.)

I hope you are interested enough to look up some proof and show everyone, especially your Congress Persons. Check the following state archives for the 13th Amendment published on the date listed. Forest did his research over the phone. Be polite.

  • "Virginia ratified the 13th Amendment on March 10, 1819. This completed the 13 states required to ratify an amendment. (Virginia Legislature Act No. 260, Virginia Archives of Richmond, file, page 299, micro-film). It was published by printing 4,000 copies, triple the usual order, with instructions to send a copy to President James Monroe, James Madison and Thomas Jefferson."
  • Rhode Island and Kentucky published the new Amendment in 1822.
  • Ohio first published it in 1824.
  • Maine ordered 10,000 copies of the Constitution with the 13th Amendment for school use in 1824 and again in 1831 for the Census Edition. It was printed in 1825.
  • Indiana Revised Laws of 1831 published the 13th article on page 20, Northwestern Territories in 1833.
  • Ohio Published it in 1831 and again 1833.
  • Wisconsin Territory in 1839.
  • Iowa Territory in 1843.
  • Ohio again in 1848.
  • Kansas Statutes in 1855.
  • Nebraska Territory 1855, 1856, 1857, 1858, 1859 and 1860.
  • Colorado Territory printed the U. S Constitution in its Statutes publication showing the 13th Amendment in 1868.

    "Could have known and should have known"

    "Could have known and should have known" is a precedent set by a California court. Although involving a physician, it implies that all people licensed or in trust by the people must perform as expected of their profession.

    Due credit for the research of both of these articles is given to an article by "The Pen" in the Oregon Observer (email: editor@oregonobserver.com); and especially to David M. Dodge and Tom Dunn, who really made the discovery and did the big research.

    Please pass these truths on to everyone you can, and especially to your Congress Persons. Do not depend on the mainstream media to carry these truths. The very life of our country depends on you and your word of mouth.

    To see a certified as correct copy of an 1825 edition of the United States Consitution containing the original Article XIII, click here. In those days the Amendments were grouped under "Amendments to the Constitution" and listed as "Articles". These files are big. It takes about a minute and a half for them to fully appear on your screen at 28800, longer for slower modems. But it worth the wait. There is something magical in seeing the original with it browning pages and curled corners stubbornly holding the truth. It shows how low the banklords and attorneys have stooped to put a noose around our necks. A note of special gratitude is made to the Archivists in the Maine State Archives for preserving and copying this invaluable document.
