From the December 2005 Idaho Observer:
The federal plantation
Below center is the 14th Amendment. Read it closely with revisionist eyes. We are not supposed to bother reading the 14th Amendment because, we have been taught since grammar school, it was merely the companion to the 13th Amendment (that freed the negro slaves) granting citizenship to negroes. The truth is that the "confederation" of (the then) 37 "united" states had been dissolved with the 1861 secession of North Carolina and, after the "Civil War," reentry into the "union" was contingent upon "ratification" of what has been inaccurately referred to ever since as the 14th Amendment. What it really represented was a complete reorganization of government, a "new deal," and the southern states were coerced into agreeing to the 14th or live with a brutal, murderous and indefinite Union army military occupation.
Section 1: Created a completely new class of citizen—citizens of the United States. Prior to "ratification" July 9, 1868, people were born or naturalized as citizens of one of the several states within which they were domiciled. Section 1 also contains the "due process clause" that infers federal supremacy in the interpretation of rights and due process of law and has been twisted by attorneys to attach the rights of "persons" to corporations as well as flesh and blood humans.
Section 2: This section is constructed to be very difficult to understand. It’s relevance is becoming apparent today as, more people become convicted as criminals and their voting "privileges" denied, the less representation their state has in Congress.
Section 3: Simply stated, a 2/3 vote from Congress and the Senate can remove the "disability" of traitors and make them eligible for public office.
Section 4: Eight trillion dollars later, we see that the states are to unquestioningly accept federal debts accrued for whatever reasons but the claims for losses caused by the United States in defense of itself are to be disregarded.
Section 5: Everything Congress has passed since July 9, 1868, has been used to enforce the provisions of the 14th Amendment.
Further research into the "parliamentary" details of how this dirty trick was blackmailed into existence reveals that the purpose of the north’s war against the south was to suspend state sovereignty and replace it with federal supremacy. One-hundred and thirty-seven years later we can safely say it worked. Until now. As of 2005, we know that the 14th Amendment is a fraud and negro slaves were freed as a ruse to enslave everyone who believes and behaves like a "U.S. citizen"; we know that the federal government uses us as cannon fodder in its wars, lab rats for medical experimentation, regulates our every move and taxes nearly 70 percent of our productivity. Our duty, now that we know, is to ask people to read the 14th Amendment and then tell them what it really means: As a 14th Amendment citizen, you have the same rights as a corporation and both of you are legal fictions under the regulatory control of whatever dictates come out of Washington, D.C. Though our "legal" legs have been amputated by the progression of federal regulatory schemes built upon the 14th Amendment, we have our "lawful" legs and we just need to encourage our countrymen to start walking.
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.
Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
