Addendum to “For Whom Is the Constitution Written?”

Addendum to “For Whom Is 
the Constitution Written?”
Thomas Allen

Additional evidence that the US Constitution was written by and for Whites is that the US Supreme Court ruled that Blacks were not citizens, and the fourteenth amendment was needed to make them citizens. Unfortunately, the fourteenth amendment, which is discussed below, also changed the construct of the country and the US Constitution.

Missouri Compromise
Article IV, Section 2, Paragraph 1 of the US Constitution, reads: “The citizens of each State shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several States.” During the debate on the Missouri Compromise in 1821, Charles Pinckney of South Carolina, who was the author of this clause said, “At the time I drew that Constitution, I perfectly knew that there did not then exist such a thing in the Union as a black or colored citizen, nor could I then have conceived it possible such a thing could ever have existed. .  . .”[1] The most important clause in the Constitution about citizenship is this comity clause, and its author says that it applied only to Whites and not to Blacks; therefore, the US Constitution is only for Whites.

Dred Scott Decision
The Dred Scott decision ruled that Negroes were not citizens under the US Constitution. Contrary to the popular myth, the Dred Scott decision did not declare or make the Negro nonhuman or subhuman. It merely declared that Negroes like foreigners were not citizens of the United States. Not being a citizen under the Constitution, the United States Supreme Court ruled that Scott, a Black slave, could not sue in a court of the United States government.
The Supreme Court ruled that Negroes were not, and were not intended to be included, under the word “citizens” in the Constitution, and, therefore, they could claim none of the rights and privileges that it provided and secured to citizens of the United States. Moreover, the Court acknowledged that a State could grant Negroes the rights and privileges of the citizens of that State, as some of the New England States had done. However, having the rights and privileges of a citizen of a State did not make a Negro a citizen of the Union or grant him rights in other States. (It also recognized that some States had given foreigners who intended to become citizens of the United States the rights and privileges of citizenship in that State, but this action did not make them citizens of the United States until they had been naturalized according to the nationalization law of the United States.)
Further, the Court declared that at the time of its adoption, the Constitution recognized as citizens the citizens in the several States. This recognition made them citizens of the new political body created by the Constitution when it was adopted. No other classes of people were included in this citizenship. They formed the Constitution for themselves and their posterity, and for no one else. All the personal rights and privileges guaranteed to citizens under this Constitution were intended only for those who were then members of the several State communities, or who should afterward, by birthright or otherwise, become members, according to the provisions of the Constitution and the principles on which it was founded.
The Court identified two clauses in the Constitution that point directly and specifically to the Negro race as a separate class of people. These two clauses clearly show that the Negro was not considered part of the people or citizens under the Constitution. One was the clause that reserves to each State the right to import slaves until the year 1808 (Article I, Section 2, Paragraph 1). This sanction unquestionably referred to the Negro. The other provision was the pledge of the States to each other to maintain the right of property of the master by delivering up to him any slave who escaped if he were found within their respective territories (Article IV, Section 2, Paragraph 3).
Thus, with the Dred Scott decision, the US Supreme Court ruled that the Negro could not be a citizen of the United States although a State could grant him the rights and privileges of a citizen of that State. By inference, no nonwhite could be a citizen of the United States under the Constitution.
Although the Supreme Court did not rule on the status of Indians in the Dred Scott decision, the Constitution strongly implies that Indians were not and could not be citizens of the United States. However, some States had granted Indians rights and privileges of citizens of their States. (Even after the adoption of the fourteenth amendment, Congress declared that Indians not taxed were not citizens under that amendment.)

Fourteenth Amendment
Because of the Dred Scott decision, the fourteenth amendment was necessary to make Negroes citizens of the United States. Unfortunately, it did more than that. It destroyed the original Constitution and changed the whole concept and construction of the country. Not only did the fourteenth amendment make the Black man a citizen of the United States, but it also made the White man a citizen of the United States. Before, one was a citizen of a State, and by virtue of being a citizen of a State, he was a citizen of the United States. Under the fourteenth amendment, any citizen of the United States became a citizen of the State in which he resided. Thus, the fourteenth amendment changed the construction of the United States from a confederation of sovereign States to a consolidated union of States.
Before the fourteenth amendment, no national citizenship existed; a person was a citizen of a State. The term “citizen of the United States” was a term of convenience that meant that someone was a citizen of a State. According to one of the promoters, Senator James Blaine, of the fourteenth amendment, its intent was to change the status of citizenship by replacing citizen of a State with a citizen of the United States. Senator Blaine said, “. . . we are not confining the breadth and scope of our efforts to the Negro. It is for the white man as well. We intend to make citizenship national. Heretofore, a man has been a citizen of the United States because he was a citizen of some-one of the states: now we propose to reverse that.”[2]
Besides changing citizenship, another purpose of the fourteenth amendment was and still is to humiliate and shame Southerners by making the Negro their master. Its purpose was and still is to degrade the Southerner to the level of the Negro and even below that level. Its objective was to degrade the Southerner by creating conditions that would encourage interracial mating. Sacrificing their beloved Negro to destroy the Southerner was of little concern for the Radical Republicans; they were just so much collateral damage. After all, Puritan Yankees considered Southerners to be subhuman at best and most likely a nonhuman beast.
Unfortunately, for the Northerner, but not the Radical Republicans, who were Puritan Yankees, whose descendants are Liberal Democrats, this degradation spread across the country as the Negro became elevated above Whites everywhere. Not only has the Negro been elevated above Whites, so have all other nonwhite races.
The fourteenth amendment was illegally, unlawfully, and unconstitutionally ratified. Most of the so-called legislators of the Southern legislatures who voted to ratify the fourteenth amendment were not citizens when they voted on the amendment. They did not become citizens entitled to vote until after the amendment was ratified. Moreover, the fourteenth amendment has other irregularities in its proposal and adoption, such as failure to achieve two-thirds of the votes in the Senate needed for its proposal.
When it was first sent to the States, 11 States rejected it (only 10 were needed to kill the amendment). Then, Congress refused to recognize the governments of the Southern States and replaced them with Negro governments controlled by carpetbaggers and scalawags backed by the US army to ensure the ratification of the amendment. Besides the ten Southern States voting to reject the fourteenth amendment, seven other States also voted to reject it. Although military might forced these 10 Southern States to change their rejection of ratification, two States, Ohio and New Jersey, that had previously voted to ratify the amendment changed their vote to reject it. While accepting the approvals of the unlawful governments of the Southern States, the Secretary of State refused to recognize the disapproval by these two States.
The Southern States that had rejected the fourteenth amendment were stripped of their representation in the US House of Representatives and the Senate and had their constitutions voided. Then, Congress through the army forced them to draft and adopt a new constitution for Congress’ approval and to ratify the fourteenth amendment before they were allowed any representation in Congress. Male inhabitants who were not disenfranchised because of participation in the rebellion elected delegates to the convention for drafting the new constitutions. Thus, most White males were disqualified. The legislature elected under the new constitution had to ratify the fourteenth amendment. Only then would Congress readmit that State and allow its Representatives and Senators be seated in Congress. Consequently, according to the law enacted by Congress to reorganize the governments of the Southern States, these States had no legitimate government when they ratified the fourteenth amendment.
Thus, many whites were disenfranchised for participating in the rebellion, and therefore, Negroes elected most of the delegates to the States’ constitutional conventions, although they had no legal right to vote. The constitutions drafted by these conventions were presented to the voters of the State for ratification. These voters were largely male Negroes since most Whites were disenfranchised for participating in the rebellion. Again, these Negroes had no legal right to vote.
The legality of the Southern States was not questioned when they ratified the thirteenth amendment, which forbade slavery. However, these same governments became illegal when they rejected the fourteenth amendment.
The Congress that passed the fourteenth amendment for submission to the States did so without Representatives and Senators from the Southern States although all, except Texas, had been entirely restored to all their functions as States in conformity with the organic law of the land.
To get the fourteenth amendment ratified, Congress had to enfranchise the Negroes and disfranchised the White men. Then, Congress had the Negroes, with the aid of carpetbaggers and scalawags, elect delegates to a convention to draw up a constitution that gave Negroes the right to vote. Afterward, the constitution was adopted without the vote of most White men. Next, a legislature was elected without the votes of most Whites. Thus, the State legislature consisted mostly of Negroes with some carpetbaggers and scalawags. After that, the Negro dominated legislature ratified the fourteenth amendment to make Negroes citizens of the United States. Consequently, people who were not citizens and could not vote elected a body that ratified the amendment that made them citizens with the right to vote. Such is the infamy of the fourteenth amendment.
The most hideous consequence of the fourteenth amendment was to destroy the original Constitution and the original construct of the United States. The United States were established as a federation of free and independent sovereign States. These States were a genetic nation, and they established the United States as a genetic country, that is, a country of, by, and for the White race. However, by making Negroes citizens, the fourteenth amendment changed the construct of the United States. They cease being a genetic federation and became a propositional empire. As a result, the purpose of the United States ceased being to protect, preserve, and promote the White residents thereof. A new purpose had to be found to include the Negro. That purpose became equality and democracy. From now on the United States would war to make the world safe for equality and democracy.
To accomplish this goal all men had to be changed into faceless beings called citizens. Moreover, each citizen was as good as another citizen. That is, citizens became interchangeable with one another. Importantly, people cease identifying themselves by race and identified themselves as citizens. Then, these citizens could be united to fight for democracy and equality. As long as these citizens would fight for democracy and equality, the United States fulfilled its purpose. Provided that these citizens would fight for democracy and equality, the type and quality of citizens mattered little: whether the citizen was White or Black or some other race did not matter. (Not only do liberals and libertarians revel in the conversion of the United States and the Constitution from a White country and Constitution to a propositional country and Constitution, so do nearly all conservatives.)
Thus, the fourteenth amendment completely destroyed the United States and subverted the US Constitution. It changed the country from one dedicated to protecting, preserving, and promoting the White race (the Aryan race) to a proportional country dedicated to spreading democracy and equality. Moreover, what the repeal of the prohibition amendment (the twenty-first amendment) did to the prohibition amendment (the eighteenth amendment), the fourteenth amendment effectively did to the ninth and, especially, the tenth amendments.
When the Negro became a citizen and the equal of the Aryan, the United States as originally founded died. The Hamiltonian-Lincolnians, Puritan Yankees, Marxists, Cabalist Jews, and their ilk won, and they have ruled the country ever since. Liberty has waned, and the US government and its despotism have waxed. Nearly all the governmental programs that many conservatives and most libertarians rail against have grown out of the fourteenth amendment.

Review of Ebeling’s “Freedom Is Why Immigrants Come to America”

Review of Ebeling’s “Freedom Is Why Immigrants Come to America”
Thomas Allen

The following is a review of “Freedom Is Why Immigrants Come to America” by Richard M. Ebeling dated May 22, 2019, and posted by the American Institute of Economic Research. His article primarily covers immigration between 1840 and 1914. He claims that the immigrants of this era came, and even today come, to the United States because they wanted to live free or to escape troubles of Europe and to find a better life. (Today, only a few come from Europe.)
Unlike today, all the immigrants who came to the United States during this time were from Europe, i.e., they were White, with the exception of Chinese imported to work in the West and some Japanese. They were of the same race, White (Aryan), the same religion, Christian, and the same cultural background, Western Civilization, as Americans. (Not being White, Negroes were not true Americans; they had to be incorporated through the unconstitutionally ratified fourteenth amendment.) Now most immigrants are of alien races and cultures and often non-Christian. However, like the immigrants of old, the new immigrants come seeking a better life — usually in the form of welfare.
Also, unlike today, no welfare state existed to support them. They had to support themselves. (Ebeling  implies that today’s “immigrants,” most of whom are nonwhite, come for the same reason. Some do; they are mostly Whites. Most come to receive their rapine from stupid Whites through various welfare programs. Thus, like the immigrants of old, they also come to improve their lives. However, instead of coming to make their way with their labor like the immigrants of old, they come to improve their lives through handouts from the welfare state.)
Ebeling notes that before the early 1900s, European immigrants usually did not need a vista or a passport to enter the United States. (The inference is that today’s immigrants should not need a vista or passport to enter the United States.) In the 1880s, the first major restrictions were placed on immigration; they were placed on Chinese and Japanese, primarily for racial reasons. (His implication is that no restrictions should be placed on immigration. If they are, they are primarily racist.)
He argues that immigrants came to the United State because of individual freedom. That may have been true before the welfare state. Now, most come for their free handouts. Also, even then more probably came to improve their economic status than for freedom. That is certainly true today where most seem to come to improve their economic status by living off welfare. Then, they were expected to work to improve their status. Now, they are not.
According to Ebeling, classical liberal principles guided America. This may be somewhat true in the economic realm where the liberal principles of the free market prevailed — except for industries protected with protective tariffs. However, since the 1933 when Roosevelt brought fascism to the United States, socialism has been the guiding economic principle.
Unfortunately, in the social realm, liberal principles have come to dominate. The new morality of racial genocide, which is closely related to liberalism, which abhors racial distinction, has supplanted the old morality, which protects and preserves the races.
According to Ebeling, the lack of governmental interference in economic and social life drew people to the United States. This may have been true in the past. However, today, with the government’s attempt to manage the economy and especially social affairs with all sorts of Black privileges, that can hardly still be true.
Freedom can scarcely be what draws people to the United States today. The police state that Bush put in place has brought the United States down to the level of Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and Communist China, even though the worst of these tyrannies have yet to manifest themselves in the United States. (If the United States are the freest country today, that is a said commentary on the rest of the world.)
Interestingly, Ebeling accuses the South of political intervention in the economy via slavery. However, he ignores real political intervention in the economy like protective tariffs, subsides to businesses, contracts to political favorites for internal improvements, and fiat money. Generally, Southerners opposed most of these whereas Northerners promoted them. Moreover, New Englanders did not oppose slavery while they were amassing fortunes in the slave trade. Only after the importation of slaves became illegal did the Puritan Yankee began to become abolitionists.
Ebeling claims that, except in the South before 1860, only a “few instances of state-sponsored, state-endorsed or state-enforced discrimination and persecution of ethnic, racial or religious groups” existed. Apparently, Illinois prohibiting free Blacks from entering that State was not state-sponsored or state-enforced discrimination — likewise, with the Northern States that outlawed interracial marriages.  Moreover, the whole debate about prohibiting slavery in territories was to keep Blacks out of the territories and preserve them for Whites only. Furthermore, because of the few numbers of Blacks in the North, custom was usually sufficient to keep most Blacks “in their place” away from Whites. Later, these customs were often enforced by governmentally protected labor union monopolies and racial exclusionary clauses in deeds and contracts, which governmental courts enforced.
Ebeling notes that most immigrants who came to the United States avoided the South. He blames this avoidance on slavery before the War and the segregation laws of the South after the War. Moreover, according to him, politics were more separated from economics in the North and West than in the South.
He ignores several important factors in avoiding the South. For most immigrants, New York City was the port of entry. From here, traveling across Pennsylvania and the Midwest was easier than traveling to the South. Historically, people of New England and New York had moved across Pennsylvania and the Midwest and from there farther westward. Only a few migrated to the South. So, routes westward were better established than routes southward.
Another, and more important, was the presence of Blacks. Most Blacks resided in the South — as slaves and then as freedmen. Like most people, liberals and libertarians excepted, these European immigrants preferred living among their own kind. (How many liberals and libertarians practice what they preach and live in predominately Black neighborhoods?)
A third reason was that the North and Radical Republicans (descendants of the Puritan Yankees and radicals who fled to the United States after the failed Revolution of 1848) had destroyed the South economically with the War and Reconstruction. So thorough was the economic destruction of the South that almost a century was needed for it to recover. Even today, parts still have not recovered — Mississippi for example. Unless the immigrant was a scoundrel, a mountebank, or had political connections with the US government, he had little chance of acquiring a comfortable estate in the South. Too many impoverished Blacks and Whites lived in the South against whom he would have to compete. Moreover, they were too poor to be good customers if he were a merchant. Only in the North and the West, did he have much economic opportunity.
Based on his description of his ancestry, Ebeling is not a descendant of Puritan Yankees. However, he certainly displays their anti-Southerner biases and prejudices.
Ebeling closes his article by praising immigrants. According to him, they are far superior to native Americans. He ignores the hordes that come to the United States as colonists and who enjoy the free handouts that stupid Americans give them while they bring down the United States and forever end the hope of the libertarian paradise that Ebeling seeks. He gives many of the trite remarks that liberals and libertarians use to support open borders and unlimited immigration, so I will not repeat them other than he considers them more patriotic than most native Americans.
Also, he is a great proponent of the melting-pot principle. That principle is mixing the races together to form motley mongrel man, which is genocide and the end of not only racial diversity but all diversity.
For him, the biggest danger resulting from restricting immigration is turning from a free marketplace to a political planning of society based on an identity politics of race and gender and possibly class, and abandoning the “ideals of individual liberty, free enterprise, and voluntary association for human dignity, material betterment, and social harmony and peace.” Like neoconservatives, liberals, and most libertarians, Ebeling places no value on natural collectives like race. He preaches freedom, but it is not the freedom of the White man as a White man or the Black man as a Black man: It is the freedom of the Mulatto man.
Also, like neoconservatives, liberals, and nearly all libertarians, Ebeling is a disciple of the new morality. Unlike his despised antebellum Southerners and Southerners of the Jim Crow era and most nonwhites, who were and are followers of the old morality, today, most Whites and unfortunately most Southerners are followers of the new morality. Likewise, except for the Puritan Yankees and the radicals from Europe, nearly all Northerners and immigrants from Europe between 1840 and 1914 followed the old morality. Furthermore, like nearly everyone else in the United States today, he believes that the United States are a propositional country and not a genetic country. Thus, the United States are doomed to perish and with that all hope for Ebeling’s libertarian nirvana will die.

Some Thoughts About Terrorism

Some Thoughts About Terrorism
Thomas Allen

The war on terrorism is being used to enslave the American people. This is illustrated below with the discussions on terrorism, fighting terrorism, and the Transportation Security Administration.

Congress has shredded the Bill of Rights in the name of protecting Americans from terrorists. Yet, it allows the greatest terrorist organization in the United States, if not the world, to continue to operate with impunity. If Congress really wanted to protect Americans from terrorists, it would abolish the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which exists at the pleasure of Congress. Since Congress continues to allow the IRS to operate, obviously it is not concerned with protecting the American people from terrorism. The purpose of the antiterrorist programs and agencies that Congress and the President have created is to enslave the American people and not to protect them.

Fighting Terrorism
A favorite slogan of the Bush administration’s war on terrorism was that we need to kill the terrorists over there so that they cannot kill us over here. How are they going to kill us over here unless the US government lets them in? The terrorists have no navy or air force. Surely, the greatest navy and air force in the world can stop any rickety vessels or air crafts that the terrorists might commandeer. Therefore, terrorists were and are no real threat to the American people unless the US government invites them in. Inviting them, the Bush and especially the Obama administrations did with their open borders and unlimited immigration policies.

Transportation Security Administration
People should be suspicions of alt-right, conservative, and libertarian leaders who do not openly protest the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and urge people to boycott flying on commercial airliners until the TSA is abolished. Moreover, these conservative leaders should lead by example and refuse to fly on commercial airliners until Congress abolishes the TSA. Their failure to do so shows that they prefer slavery and convenience to liberty.
The TSA is a highly visible apparatus of America’s police state. Its primary job is not to protect passengers from terrorists, but to teach them to be obedient slaves to ridiculous and humiliating requirements — just as Mussolini required his lieutenants to perform ridiculous and humiliating activities. If such a young, visible, and irritating agency of the police state can be abolished, then recovery of America is hopeful. If not, America is doomed to despotic tyranny.
Moreover, the TSA violates at least five of the amendments of the Bill of Rights: the Second, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Tenth. An argument for ignoring the violations of these inalienable rights is that flying is voluntary. Thus, by the mere act of flying on an airplane, a person voluntarily exchanges his inalienable rights for slavery, which is a violation of the Thirteenth Amendment. Voting is also voluntary. Following the reasoning for violating the rights of airline passengers, Congress could require everyone registered voter to sign away all his inalienable rights guaranteed by the US Constitution.
If the spokesmen for the alt-right, conservatives, libertarians, and other preachers of liberty want to strike a blow for liberty, they need to refuse to fly on commercial airliners until the TSA is abolished and is replaced with nothing. Moreover, they need to urge their followers to imitate their example and refuse to fly on commercial airliners until Congress abolishes the TSA. Likewise, their followers need to persuade their friends and relatives to boycott commercial airlines. If enough people refuse to fly until Congress abolishes the TSA and replaces it with nothing, the airlines will eventually force Congress to abolish the TSA.
If people refuse to give up the short-term convenience of flying, they deserve enslavement. Unfortunately, they will also drag people who value freedom over slavery further down into slavery.
Nevertheless, the TSA does offer a great opportunity for pedophiles. Where else can a pedophile get paid to grope children all day long?
