Harvard Names Mario Apuzzo, Esq. To Ezra Pound Chair Of Common Law!!!

Genius Is The Capacity To See Three Cats Where The Ordinary Man Sees One.

Well, I guess I will have to walk back some of my criticism of Mario “The Mangler” Apuzzo, Esq. Martha Minnow, Dean of The Harvard Law School, announced Saturday, that famed Birther attorney, Mario Apuzzo, Esq., has been named to the Ezra Pound Chair on Common Law.

This is a very prestigious and lucrative position. Pound served as  Dean of Harvard Law School from 1916 to 1936. The Journal of Legal Studies has identified Pound as one of the most cited legal scholars of the 20th century. Wiki also notes:

In 1922, Pound and Felix Frankfurter undertook a detailed quantitative study of crime reporting in Cleveland newspapers for the month of January 1919, using column inch counts. They found that, whereas, in the first half of the month, the total amount of space given over to crime was 925 inches, in the second half it leapt to 6642 inches. This was in spite the fact that the number of crimes reported had only increased from 345 to 363.

They concluded that although the city’s much publicized “crime wave” was largely fictitious and manufactured by the press, the coverage had a very real consequence for the administration of criminal justice. Because the public believed they were in the middle of a crime epidemic, they demanded an immediate response from the police and the city authorities. These agencies wishing to retain public support, complied, caring “more to satisfy popular demand than to be observant of the tried process of law.” The result was a greatly increased likelihood of miscarriages of justice and sentences more severe than the offenses warranted.

While some think this is fishy, and sounds like Apuzzo is being lured away from the Birther movement, Minnow says the appointment of Apuzzo is in line with the institution’s commitment to diversity. She also notes that while Apuzzo’s selection is controversial, his appointment will bring fresh blood to the common law, which has long been mired down in centuries of tradition. She also stated that even critics of Apuzzo can not help but be impressed by his depth of knowledge related to alternative legal systems, and that his recent 200 page brief in Pennsylvania Birther was the deciding factor.

Minnow relates that after reading Apuzzo’s Brief, she was just stunned, and temporarily lost the power of speech. When she came to her senses, she realized that Apuzzo needed an institution, like Harvard, where he could hone his academic talents. The Birther Think Tank was able to obtain a copy of Apuzzo’s Curriculum Vitae from the Harvard website! I have deleted the first page, which contained personal information, but here are pages 2 and 3:

    I agree.

    Maybe, just maybe, Mario can officially inform Harvard Law School, the US Supreme Court and the rest of our Anglo-Saxon judiciary, we won the American Revolution. We are no longer subjects of the Crown, but free, independent and sovereign citizens in a Constitutional Republic. Perhaps, just perhaps our American judicial system will actually start reflecting said fact.

    “his appointment will bring fresh blood to the common law, which has long been mired down in centuries of tradition.”

    Perfect! I am in awe of your awesomeness!

    Squeeky Fromm, Girl Reporter,

    I appreciate your taking your valuable time to actually read my brief which was filed with the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. I also appreciate your reporting on my award. It is my true hope that our judicial and legal profession would go back to our founding and sort out what really happened on the national level between natural law and the law of nations on one side and the English common law on the other.

    Mario Apuzzo, Esq.

      Hi Mario Apuzzo!!!

      I hope you liked the April Fools Day post about you. Can I ask a question???

      Why don’t you work on your brief some to make it less specific to the actual lawsuit, and turn it into a Kindle Book like Corsi and Zullo did??? Plus, if you made it about “why the law should change” in your opinion, instead of “the law is wrong” —then what you wrote would be a lot less subject to criticism.

      There are actually judges and writers who upheld the common law definition while stating that in their opinion, the international law approach made more sense.

        I second that. I’ve been saying all along that thinking the NBC requirement should be interpreted more strictly than it has been, trying to get the SCOTUS to define it more narrowly, or an Amendment to stipulate what it means, doesn’t make you a crazy, counter-productive ‘Birther.’ But arguing that all the Judges who have ruled that born on the soil means you can run for President are in contravention of the current working understanding of NBC does. And saying “the Constitution requires the President to have two citizen parents” makes one a laughing-stock.

        If you prevail, that would be bad news for Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal and Tom Vilsack and numerous other potential candidates, but so be it.

        Congratulations on your appointment.

    If I see 3 cats, does that mean that I’m a genius, or that a genius would see 9?

  • Dave B.

    I always look a bit askance at a fellow who has to tell you aforehand how smart he is.
    I go with however many cats Squeeky says there are. Squeeky’s bound to know.

    • Squeeky Fromm, Girl Reporter

      Dave B:

      Maybe there are more cats than are dreamt of . . .

      In 1929, in A Packet for Ezra Pound, Yeats wrote his famous description of Pound’s kindness to the stray cats in Rapallo: “Sometimes about ten o’clock at night I accompany him to a street where there are hotels upon one side, upon the other palm trees and the sea, and there, taking out of his pocket bones and pieces of meat, he begins to call the cats. He knows all their histories — the brindled cat looked like a skeleton until he began to feed it; that fat gray cat is an hotel proprietor’s favorite, it never begs from the guests’ tables and it turns cats that do not belong to the hotel out of the garden; this black cat and that grey cat over there fought on the roof of a four-storied house some weeks ago, fell off, a whirling ball of claws and fur, and now avoid each other.”

      But then Yeats felt compelled to add: “Yet now that I recall the scene I think that he has no affection for the cats — `some of them so ungrateful,’ a friend says — he never nurses the café’s cat, I cannot imagine him with a cat of his own.”

      Yeats proposes an explanation as follows: “Cats are oppressed, dogs terrify them, landladies starve them, boys stone them, everybody speaks of them with contempt. If they were human beings we could talk of their oppressors with a studied violence, add our strength to theirs, even organize the oppressed and like good politicians sell our charity for power.”

      It is Ezra Pound who called T.S.Eliot, “Old Possum”, and it was T.S. Eliot’s book, “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats” which formed the basis of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, “Cats.”

        And the better parts of “Logan’s Run”; at least among those not attached to Jenny Agutter.
        It sure did wonders for cats’ reputation when folks figured out there was money in them. I’ve always admired their social skills.

    Wow. Our friend David is very excited about this news, and he’s spreading it to Tea Partiers far and wide:

    None other than Harvard’s recently appointed Ezra Pound Chair on Common Law has stated that an A2S1C5 nbC is a person born of two United States Citizen-parents within the jurisdiction. I am speaking, of course, of one of the most accomplished “birther” attorneys in the nation: “Mario Apuzzo”.

    Just look at the irony of this appointment. Here we have one of the leading “birthers” in the nation being appointed to a Harvard Chair on, of all things: English common law!

    So when Mario Apuzzo ( now a recognized expert on the English common law) says that he has shown that history and legal precedents do not support the definition of a “natural born Citizen,” i.e., any child simply born in the United States, regardless of the citizenship of the parents, people sit up and take notice.

    Congrats Squeeky!

    • Monkey Boy

      Tee hee hee. You have to wonder if David is really, REALLY, dumb or is he just being true to form and spreading lies.

  • Dave B.

    The small potential for confusion alarms me. I am reminded of the little bull who, on the arrival of a new, improved (vastly improved) bull, began snorting and pawing the ground ferociously, and generally putting on a display. His fellow bulls, who were expressing their sudden willingness to accommodate the new Bull with a capital B by sharing the herd with him, were appalled at his behavior and suggested he cool off a bit lest new SuperBull take notice; to which said little bull replied “I just want to make sure that so-and-so knows I’m a bull”.
    Just so there’s no confusion about who anybody is, I want to point out that a “B” follows my given name, not an “F”. Just in case.
    Oh, and if it helps any, there were three bulls there before the big one showed up. No cats, though.

  • davidfarrar

    Well, I have to say it, I took the bait, hook, line and sinker, plus rod & reel and the last addition of Field & Stream on this one.

    But my consolution prize was gained with a much deeper understanding how the delegates at the Constitutional Convention, chaired by G.Washington, with John Jay’s “strong check” note in his hands, arrived at a natural born Citizen requirement from Hamilton’s draft proposal of: “…unless he be now a Citizen of one of the States, or hereafter be born a Citizen of the United States.”

    A clear indication of Mr. Apuzzo’s point can be seen when the delegates ditched Hamilton’s common law “state” citizens suggeston and went exclusly for Emer de Vattel’s, The Law of Nations definition. For his understanding of early post revoluionary zeal to create a national govenment of free citizens instead of subjects; I would not be suprozed if Mario Apuzzo didn’t one day received just such an award

    • Dave B.

      David, you’re a good sport about it. Now you’ve figured out April 1st, but aren’t you still having a problem with dates? In your post “I will file against Mitt Romney if he is nominated” you quote Mario Apuzzo quoting the 1797 edition of “The Law of Nations”, which includes the first appearance of the phrase “natural born citizen” in “The Law of Nations”. The phrase of course didn’t appear in the original French; neither did it appear in English translation of Vattel before 1797. You must know by now that the phrase “natural born citizen” comes not from Vattel, but from English Common Law. What sense is there in turning to Vattel for a definition of a term he didn’t even use? More pointedly, what sense is there in saying the Founders relied on something that didn’t yet exist?
      I notice you’re still patting Mr. Apuzzo on the back over there at the “Tea Party Command Center”, by the way.

      Hi David!!!

      Well, it was April Fools Day and I did 3 April Fools stories that day. I felt bad when I saw that you fell for it, but by then the damage was already done and I couldn’t stop it. I would have if I could. But the truth is, most people will never know the difference anyway. Plus, having that rumor out there will probably help Mario pick up chicks when he is out running around.

      On the bright side, you can always tell people, “That Squeeky Fromm is the slickest fibber around and this just goes to show that you can never trust the Anti-Birthers.” I figure I have that coming for my sinful ways.

      Plus, was that Tea Party website where you write stuff??? If so, I will put up a link to it.

        No, you shouldn’t feel bad. I am always following strange trails to try and get to the bottom of this tale.

        Your April Fool’s joke caused me to go to Mario’s website ( I hope) to catch up on his work, and there it was, right before my eyes: the last key of the puzzle. It came to me when Mario started discussing the different legal structure between the states, and their statutes and constitutions being based on English common law, and the clear intent of the founders after the American Revolution against England to base the national government on the law of nations which was de Vattel and his ‘The Law of Nations’.

        It explains how and why the Constitutional Convention delegates, Chaired by G. Washington, got from Hamilton’s draft proposal of, “…unless he be now
        a Citizen of one of the States, or hereafter be born a Citizen of the United States”
        to a natural born Citizen was adopted and why.

      • davidfarrar

        But to tell you the truth, Squeeky,

        I didn’t really understand your question to Mario Apuzzo, if, indeed, it was Mario Apuzzo. You wanted him to somehow adopt your version of events, while giving up on his own?

        In short, you wanted to know why he didn’t just switch places with you?

        ex animo
        davidfarrar

        • Squeeky Fromm, Girl Reporter

          No, it not that I want him to adopt anything. I am just curious why all the insistence from him that the law says what it doesn’t say. When the courts tell you over and over that your legal theory is wrong, at some point you have to ask yourself, “Is my legal theory wrong???”

          Apuzzo wrote a long brief, and actually made some decent arguments that parentage is a better way to go than place of birth. He isn’t the first to say that.

          Sooo I wonder why is there just this never-ending insistence that Obama is ineligible and why he doesn’t divorce his beliefs from Obama and pursue changing the law. If he did, his arguments would be relevant, whether you agree with them or not.

          This is the thing I was talking about in the “Outer Limits of Birtherism” Internet Article.

    David needs to submit to an investigation to determine if he, while dressed in drag, seduced Darren Huff and induced him to travel to Monroe, TN with the intention of participating in an insurrection against the United States and Tennessee.

    Is David the “tranny” that Darren was hunting? Does he have some attributes (i.e., a big butt) that Darren goes ga-ga over? Who was the dildo used on? So many questions that need to be answered.

  • Monkey Boy

    Destruction of the United States has been a pipe dream of Confederates and neo-Confederates since 1865. Of course, that destruction cannot occur without another civil war, and the conflict cannot be region against region–the secession in 1860-61 demonstrated the folly of that.

    So, now their hope is to ignite a politico-racial war and make it nationwide. D. Farrar has amply demonstrated his adherence to that viewpoint, and facts (proximity and association) and circumstances indicate that there is a prima facie case for indictment for conspiracy to overthrow the government of the United States by acting in concert with Darren Huff, et al.
