Thanks go to Michael Rivero at What Really Happened for the link.
Here's a second link.
From the Archive.org site:
"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."
On March 12, 1819 the State of Virginia, with the enactment and publication of the laws of Virginia, became the 13th and FINAL state required to ratify the above article of amendment to the Constitution For The United States, thus making it the Law Of The Land. With the enactment of Act No. 280, March 12, 1819, which was Voted, En Bloc, and publication of the Revised Code, the State of Virginia notified the Department of State, the Congress, the Library of Congress, and the President of their action by issuing to each a copy of the Laws of Virginia. [See VA 1819 Images] . In fact, the Journal of the Virginia Senate; Tuesday, May 1st, 1810 (Pages 511-512 shows that the resolution to amend was properly enrolled and ratified on that date by the Virginia House and Senate, to be laid before the President of the United States, therefore the first state to ratify.
This Article of Amendment is intimately connected to questions of loyalty, honesty, war and national defense. It is designed to combat internal subversion and discord sowed by people who are adhering to powers foreign to the Congress of the United States without stepping across the bold Constitutional line of treason. The authors of the TONA wrote it after some additional experience with how the British Empire, as well as other European nations, actually [corruptly] conduct their affairs. It is a corrective and supplemental measure to go along with Constitutional treason.
This Article of Amendment added an enforceable strict penalty, i.e., inability to hold office and loss of citizenship, for violations of the already existing constitutional prohibition in Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8 on titles of nobility and other conflicts of citizenship interest, such as accepting emoluments of any kind for services or favors rendered or to be rendered, and is particularly applicable today in the 21st Century as government is increasingly FOR SALE to the highest bidder, as foreign nations and multinational corporations and individuals compete to line the pockets of politicians and political parties to accommodate and purchase protection or privilege for their special interests, i.e. with honors, such as money or allowing dual-citizenships. [Note how many people illegally within government today hold such dual citizenship.]
In terms familiar to the common man, this might quite properly be called the use of bribes and graft by individuals and powers foreign, i.e. external, to the Congress of the United States to subvert the constitutional process and suborn our political system and the interests of WE THE PEOPLE.
After appearing in numerous official publications until 1876, this Article "disappeared" from our Constitution, to be replaced by another made nearly 50 years later [This means what we usually call the "13th" is really the 14th, etc.]. You may well ask how such a thing could have happened. So did we.
It is of particular interest to read the last three paragraphs of the preface to"Echoes From The Cabinet," published in 1896, To understand why our legislators mad it disappear.
The disappearance of the original 13th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States has been under investigation by independent modern researchers during the past years. We've learned a lot.
We now know that the original 13th Amendment was, and still is, the Law Of The Land.
The law is still there, waiting only to be publicly recognized and enforced once again to protect the Sovereignty and Interests of WE THE PEOPLE, and to force the elected representatives of the people to adhere strictly to their solemn and binding Oath of Office, i.e., "I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God." , and to the limitations of government imposed by the Constitution.
The original thirteenth amendment got in the way of British bribes to government officials. These bribes were eventually to secure British control over the United States once again; but this time; through the establishment of the foreign-controlled Federal Reserve, and it's privately controlled subsidiary organization, the Internal Revenue Service. In fact, it was through such bribes and an act of arson to destroy records, that the ratified thirteenth amendment was gradually obfuscated.
That is why the heads of the Federal Reserve have been Knights of the British Realm; US presidents have been British Rhodes-Trust controlled agents, and why we now have a "President" (Barack Obama) who is technically a British citizen (he admits his father was a citizen of a British colony.)
