The missing 13th Amendment discovered

Jul 30, 2018

Article 1, Section 10 of the US Constitution prohibits any American from receiving a title of nobility. Anyone guilty of doing so was to forfeit their citizenship.


One such title was Attorney. Another was Esquire. Or how about when George H. W. Bush, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth for his faithful service during his tenure as president 41 of the United States?

Was Bush Sr knighted by Queen Elizabeth?

Absolutely YES. The President of the United stated knelt before the Queen of England in 1993


Here is another article that speaks of other Americans who have accepted titles of nobility from the Queen:

Americans who have been knighted by the Queen of England

Over the years, some prominent Americans who achieved great things were given the great honor to be knighted by the Queen of England. Some of the very famous Americans who have been knighted include the following:

Bill Gates
George Bush Sr.
Bob Hope
Colin Powel

No government or authority issues the honor or title of knighthood apart from the Queen or King of England. 


According to the Constitution, these people ought to lose their US citizenship, because, in essence, they are swearing allegiance to a foreign government.

Most people are also unaware that in 1810 an amendment to the Constitution was voted on, which precipitated the War of 1812. British troops destroyed the White House and especially the Library of Congress to erase the historical records of the 13th Amendment. Nonetheless, the amendment was ratified by the required number of states in 1819, though subsequently, the lawyers worked hard to suppress it and to eradicate it from historical memory. When the next amendment was ratified, they made that one the NEW 13th amendment.

It was rediscovered in 1983 by David Dodge and Tom Dunn.


In the winter of 1983, archival research expert David Dodge, and former Baltimore police investigator Tom Dunn, were searching for evidence of government corruption in public records stored in the Belfast Library on the coast of Maine.

By chance, they discovered the library’s oldest authentic copy of the Constitution of the United States (printed in 1825). Both men were stunned to see this document included a 13th Amendment that no longer appears on current copies of the Constitution. Moreover, after studying the Amendment’s language and historical context, they realized the principle intent of this “missing” 13th Amendment was to prohibit lawyers from serving in government….

The “missing” 13th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as follows:

“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….”

Historically, the British peerage system referred to knights as “Squires” and to those who bore the knight’s shields as “Esquires”. As lances, shields, and physical violence gave way to the more civilized means of theft, the pen grew mightier (and more profitable) than the sword, and the clever wielders of those pens (bankers and lawyers) came to hold titles of nobility. The most common title was “Esquire” (used, even today, by some lawyers).

Imagine a US government without lawyers! All those lawyer jokes would soon be forgotten as well.

Dream on.
