The 14th Amendment Is Unconstitutional
By TLB Contributing Author: Ken LaRive
My opening Shot …
One reason government is so powerful and we the people weak is the 14th amendment. From its inception it has diminished personal freedom, is the vanguard for Federal domination of private property, and the overpowering destruction of our congressional right for self-government at state and local levels. Using court injunction orders along with operative efforts of withdrawing federal funding, the Federal Government can control and force their dictum unchallenged by Executive Order. In essence, the 14th Amendment enslaved an entire nation to a far-reaching and all-encompassing Federal Government.
Both the U.S. Supreme Court and all inferior courts as well, do not challenge the unconstitutionality of the 14th Amendment because they have been granted overt powers without reserve or restriction. This, in and of itself, is traitorous, and it is one of many reasons why Dr. Paul could not be President. The Progressives and Neocons, both fingers of the same hand would not allow it.
The 14th Amendment is unconstitutional, and here is why…
- The Joint Resolution proposing said amendment was not submitted to or adopted by a Constitutional Congress per Article I, Section 3, and Article V of the U. S. Constitution.
- The Joint Resolution was not submitted to the President for his approval as required by Article I, Section 7 of the U. S. Constitution.
- The proposed 14th Amendment was rejected by more than one-fourth of all the States then in the Union, and it was never ratified by three-fourths of all the States in the Union as required by Article V of the U. S. Constitution.
At the time of this resolution in 1865, 28 Senators were unlawfully excluded from the U. S. Senate to secure a two-thirds vote for adoption of the Joint Resolution proposing the 14th Amendment. These are the 15 states who formally opposed it:
Alabama rejected the 14th Amendment on Dec. 7, 1866.
Louisiana rejected the 14th Amendment on Feb. 6, 1867.
Texas rejected the 14th Amendment on Oct. 27, 1866.
Georgia rejected the 14th Amendment on Nov. 9, 1866.
Florida rejected the 14th Amendment on Dec. 6, 1866.
North Carolina rejected the 14th Amendment on Dec. 14, 1866.
Arkansas rejected the 14th Amendment on Dec. 17, 1866.
South Carolina rejected the 14th Amendment on Dec. 20, 1866.
Kentucky rejected the 14th Amendment on Jan. 8, 1867.
Virginia rejected the 14th Amendment on Jan. 9, 1867.
Louisiana rejected the 14th Amendment on Feb. 6, 1867.
Delaware rejected the 14th Amendment on Feb. 7, 1867.
Maryland rejected the l4th amendment on Mar. 23, 1867.
Mississippi rejected the 14th Amendment on Jan. 31, 1867.
Ohio rejected the 14th amendment on Jan. 16, 1868.
New Jersey rejected the 14th Amendment on Mar. 24, 1868.
As an example, Texas protested as follows:
“The amendment to the Constitution proposed by this joint resolution as article XIV is presented to the Legislature of Texas for its action thereon, under Article V of that Constitution. This article V, providing the mode of making amendments to that instrument, contemplates the participation by all the States through their representatives in Congress, in proposing amendments. As representatives from nearly one-third of the States were excluded from the Congress proposing the amendments, the constitutional requirement was not complied with; it was violated in letter and in spirit; and the proposing of these amendments to States which were excluded from all participation in their initiation in Congress, is a nullity.”
The U. S. Constitution clearly provides in Article I, Section 3 that …
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State”
And in Article V it provides:
“No State, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.”
Fifteen States out of the thirty-seven of that early Union rejected the proposed 14th Amendment. It should have nullified the resolution at that point, and made a ratification impossible, without a required three-fourths approval.
Author’s note: Three elements to consider…
With a mere stroke of a pen President Trump can nullify this amendment, but the powers that control our nation will not let that happen. Kennedy tried it, and he is dead. It has ignited a spark in every liberty-minded Patriot, and this revolution is not over with yet… In fact, it has just begun, reborn from a generation of complicity. Reborn on the ashes of a dying Republic, and diminished Civil Liberty. Only vigilance… constant and unrelenting, can our Republic survive. It must be fought for every generation. Once it is gone, it will be extremely difficult to get it back without violence. A patriotic president is our only hope…
The 14th amendment was organized by Socialists, morphing into the Progressives who gave us the Unconstitutional Federal Reserve one hundred and four years ago. Both should finally be recognized as null and void, but the 14th amendment inhibits that from happening. Progressives will never relinquish control of both our White House, and media, without a fight.
We are protected by a Constitution, but not if it is ignored. And all those who intentionally thwart the Constitution should be branded a traitor, and duly arrested as such. We should make a special place for them in Leavenworth, and Guantanamo Bay… brave words from a Country with its hands tied.
God Bless America, and give her the strength to regain our liberty, from tyranny.

From the Author, Ken LaRive – We in the Liberty movement have been fighting to take back this country for less than a decade, peacefully and with the love of God and country in our hearts. Our banner has been trampled on and displaced by a multitude of distractions, further eroding our nation and the cause for Liberty. And so, as we are pulled by forces we cannot fathom, powerful entities with unlimited resources stolen from our future, unaccountable trillions printed out of thin air and put on our backs as debt, we must formulate the most pitiful of all questions any patriot might ask in the final hour: Are we going to fight for our master’s tyranny, or are we going to demand the return of our civil liberties and Constitution? Are we going to choose The Banner of Liberty, or the shackles of voluntary servitude? Will it be a war for corporate profit, or a war to regain our ability to self govern, as the blood and toil of our forefathers presented to us, their children, as a gift? I fear that decision is emanate. I fear that any decision will be a hard one, but my greatest fear of all is that the decision has already been made for us.
Ken LaRive – Facets: It’s a simple but beautiful metaphor. Our soul is likened to an uncut diamond, pure, perfect, and unrealized. Each learned experience cleaves a facet on its face, and leaves it changed forever. Through this facet, this clear window, new light, new questions and ideas take shape and form. This process is our reason for being …
