STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Thirteen
AN ACT recognizing the original Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
1 Preamble and Statement of Intent. The general court hereby finds that:
I. In 1810, a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibited titles of nobility and which later became known as the original Thirteenth Amendment, was introduced, passed both houses of Congress, and was sent to the states for ratification. On December 9, 1812, shortly after ratification by Virginia, New Hampshire became the thirteenth state to ratify the amendment. The amendment was therefore ratified by the requisite number of states and became Article XIII of the United States Constitution.
II. During the War Between the States, otherwise known as the Civil War, the country was under martial law, and all executive orders made by President Lincoln were, in effect, law. After the war, laws made during that period were to be abated; yet, vestiges of martial law remained and presidents continued to write executive orders.
III. The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871, otherwise known as the Act of 1871, created a corporation in the District of Columbia called the United States of America. The act revoked prior legislation relative to the district’s municipal charter and, most egregiously, led to adoption of a fraudulent constitution in which the original Thirteenth Amendment was omitted.
IV. Today, what appears to the public as the United States Constitution is not the complete document, as it was never lawfully amended to remove the Thirteenth Amendment. Instead, the document presented as the United States Constitution is merely a mission statement for the corporation unlawfully established in the Act of 1871.
V. The purpose of this act is to recognize that the original Thirteenth Amendment, which prohibits titles of nobility, is properly included in the United States Constitution and is the law of the land. The act is also intended to end the infiltration of the Bar Association and the judicial branch into the executive and legislative branches of government and the unlawful usurpation of the people’s right, guaranteed by the New Hampshire constitution, to elect county attorneys who are not members of the bar. This unlawful usurpation gives the judicial branch control over all government and the people in the grand juries. As long as the original Thirteenth Amendment is concealed from the people, there shall never be justice or a legitimate constitutional form of government.
2 New Chapter; Thirteenth Amendment. Amend RSA by inserting after chapter 1-A the following new chapter:
ORIGINAL THIRTEENTH AMENDMENT
1-B:1 Original Thirteenth Amendment. The following shall be recognized as the original Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution:
If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honor, 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.
3 Effective Date. This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
Title of nobility.
Article I, Sec. 9, cl. 8; … No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States; or “State” Article I, Sec. 10. cl. 1. Cf.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul on Thursday introduced the “Life At Conception Act,” saying that the “right to life is guaranteed to all Americans.”
“I plan to ensure this is upheld,” the Republican senator added.
“Sen. Paul introduced S.583, a bill that would implement equal protection under the 14th Amendment for the right to life of each born and unborn human,” the senator’s office said, per a press release.
“This legislation does not amend or interpret the Constitution, but simply relies on the 14th Amendment, which specifically authorizes Congress to enforce its provisions,” his office adds.
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.
The bill has 15 cosponsors (all Republican) including Sens. John Barrasso (Wyo.), John Boozman (Ark.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Daniel Coats (Ind.), Thomas Coburn (Okla.), Michael Enzi (Wyo.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Charles “Chuck” Grassley (Iowa), John Hoeven (N.D.), James “Jim” Inhofe (Okla.), Mike Johanns (Neb.), Jerry Moran (Kan.), James Risch (Idaho), John Thune (S.D.), and Roger Wicker (Miss.)
“The Life at Conception Act legislatively declares what most Americans believe and what science has long known — that human life begins at the moment of conception, and therefore is entitled to legal protection,” Sen. Paul said.
“The right to life is guaranteed to all Americans in the Declaration of Independence and ensuring this is upheld is the Constitutional duty of all Members of Congress,” he added.

PNP comment: Hum, I wonder who all the businesses and Greenie groups are that support more Wilderness? — Editor Liz Bowen
Letter from OR. Senator Ron Wyden:
Dear Mrs. Blossom:
Thank you for contacting me to share your concern over the Rogue Wilderness Area Expansion legislation. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.
As you know, the Wild Rogue Wilderness, and the Rogue River that runs through it, embodies one of the nation’s premier recreation destinations, providing numerous rafting and fishing opportunities. That’s why I introduced the Rogue Wilderness Area Expansion Act (S. 2001), with Senator Merkley, designating an additional 60,000 acres of wilderness and ensuring these lands are protected for future generations. Additionally, this bill received a hearing on March 22, 2012.
In general, I believe in a multiple use approach to managing our public lands. Furthermore, as part of the wilderness designation process, I worked to address the recreational and community needs around the Wild Rogue Wilderness. I have worked with the timber industry and conservationists to find a compromise that protects one of America’s treasures with additional wilderness designations and more targeted protections for the Rogue’s tributaries. I am pleased that nearly 60 local businesses—and over 100 organizations and business in total—support protecting the Wild Rogue, and that support grows every day. The input of local interests and communities is critical to the success of any wilderness proposal.
While we may disagree on this issue, I trust there are many other issues upon which we do agree. As I work in the Senate to represent Oregon, please know that I will keep your views in mind.
Thank you again for keeping me apprised of issues that are important to you. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I may be of further assistance on this or any other matter.
United States Senator
