There is No "Fourteenth Amendment"!

There is No "Fourteenth Amendment"!

A MISTAKEN BELIEF
that there is a valid article in the Constitution known as the "Fourteenth Amendment" is responsible for the Supreme Court decision of 1954 and the ensuing controversy over desegregation in the public schools of America. No such amendment was ever legally ratified by three fourths of the States of the Union as required by the Constitution itself. The so-called "Fourteenth Amendment" was dubiously proclaimed by the Secretary of State on July 20, 1868. The President shared that doubt. There were 37 States in the Union at the time, so ratification by at least 28 was necessary to make the amendment an integral part of the Constitution. Actually, only 21 States legally ratified it. So it failed of ratification.

If this is indeed true, as the author states, then why hasn't anyone brought this up before?

It isn't brought up because, most people realize that revising history, does not change history.

All I said, is it has been discussed in the past.
I actually was part of that discussion.

Revising and changing history is the Progressive way.

Anybody that seeks to revise history, by definition, cannot learn from it.

Then why have Progressives revised it, to suit their agenda?

What has changed since 1957?

Astounding that the Supreme Court (which applies the 14th Amendment due process and equal protection clauses in about 2/3rds of the rulings they make) has never noticed.

If this is true, it can and will be used for a loop hole.

Their probably keeping it quiet because it could reverse thousands of sentences, retroactive. including death sentences that have already been carried out.
