Lincoln signs it...abolished slavery (not...actually made all of us slaves...but that's another thread...)...takes away states rights...the number 13...April 15th...
US continues to be in a permanent state of national emergency since March 9, 1933, and possibly as far back as the Civil War
--Senate report 93-549 (1973)
On April 15, 1861,
President Lincoln reconvened Congress under the Executive branch by proclamation (number 1): "I do hereby, in virtue of the power in me vested by the Constitution, convene both Houses of Congress."
Ceasar (President) is now in full control even over the Senate (Congress).
A Presidential dictatorship has been imposed on U.S. citizens. The sad thing is, "Most American people do not realize it yet."
The corporate government created in 1871 will continue to exist as long as:
"state of war" or "emergency" exists (War on Drugs, War on Poverty, War on Terrorism, War on Iraq, etc.),
the President does not terminate "martial" or "emergency" powers by Executive Order or decree, or
the people do not resist submission and terminate by restoring lawful civil courts, processes and procedures under authority of the "inherent political powers" of the people.
The original Thirteenth Amendment (no title of nobility), approved by 13 of the 17 states March 12, 1819 and thereby ratified, is the last proper draft of a de jure Amendment but is not recognized by the corporate (de facto) UNITED STATES.
The original 13th Amendment prohibits "Esquires" (Attorneys) from holding positions of public office.
The Fourteenth Amendment for all intents and purposes does not exist. On March 28, 1861 Congress adjourned sine die and never has reconvened de jure.
Obama using Lincoln bible/theme...all these new bills trying to sneeking in more controls...
