The Constitutional Amendments that weren’t

Apparently the US Constitution is flawed. There is reason to believe that the 13th Amendment we know is not the actual 13th Amendment. There is a 13th Amendment that was passed May 1, 1810 and ratified December 9, 1812, it states:

Amendment XIII
Passed by Congress May 1, 1810 – Ratified December 9, 1812.

“If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, 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.”

A lot different from the 13th Amendment we know today:

XIII Amendment

Passed by Congress on January 31, 1865, and ratified on December 6, 1865,

  “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”.

Hmm why would there be 2 different 13th Amendments? The original 13th Amendment was lost when the British burned Washington DC in 1814. So I believe Congress took that as a chance to rewrite the Constitution, to their favor. Because according to the original 13th Amendment members of the BAR association would be ineligible for government office, as the BAR association is a private group that does not allow public entrance, you have to be a lawyer to be in the BAR. And the BAR association has its roots in English aristocracy, essentially giving those who enter the BAR association a title given from the English a foreign power. making it illegal for lawyers to serve in Congress.

If this weren’t enough to make you question the legality of the Constitution, lets look at the 16th Amendment as written the 16th Amendment stated there are only 3 ways for the government to collect taxes are through Import Tax, Export Tax, and Excise Tax (Sales Tax), there was no income tax included. However this is a moot point considering the 16th Amendment was never legally ratified. Read the report here.

And sometime after the illegal ratification the Amendment was changed to state :

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

Which if you read it states the Federal Government can collect any tax on any income without giving anything back to the States, and it doesn’t have to regard the census when setting taxes, and no where in this unratified rewritten amendment does it cap the amount of taxes the federal government can collect.

I don’t know about you but this worries me, actually it scares me. If the government can just ignore legally ratified amendments and emplace illegally ratified amendments what other powers have they taken that they are not authorized?

  1. The bar association is not an “emperor, king, prince, or foreign power” so your argument is invalid. It is irrelevant that the turn “esquire” was originally used by English aristocracy, if the title is not bestowed in a manner to make you part of the English aristocracy than it is irrelevant for the purposes of that earlier version of the 13th amendment. Next you’ll be telling me that since Admiral is derived from a term meaning “prince of the sea” that everyone who is promoted to that rank in the Navy or Coast Guard shouldn’t be a citizen either.

    • The B.A.R stands for- British Accreditation Registry, it is a title granted by a group that started in England and continues to this day. As for Admiral being derived from a term meaning Prince of the Sea, it is a title bestowed by the President based on recommendations by the Chief of Staff of the Navy, so your argument is therefore invalid. Getting into the B.A.R is a private club, a club granted their powers from the original B.A.R association on England. Earning the rank of Admiral is based on our laws as a nation, not granted by a foreign power or group.
