After A Wild Night Of Researching The Origins Of Natural Born Citizens, Mario’s Mind And Body Both Were A Little Unsound

OMG!!! I just read this over at the Fogbow:

As I will demonstrate in my up-coming essay, the anonymous English translator inserting the “natural-born citizen” clause into Vattel’s Section 212 of The Law of Nations in 1797, which he did only eight years after the Constitution was ratified in 1789, convincingly proves that the Founders’, Framers’, and Ratifiers’ source of the definition of the “natural-born citizen” clause was Emer de Vattel and the law of nations and not William Blackstone and the English common law.

I hate to play SPOILERS for  Mario Apuzzo, Esq., but I am afraid I already know who that anonymous translator is, and why Apuzzo is careful not to disclose his name – – – It is the Marquis de Sade!!!  His non-royal name was Donatien Alphonse Francois, or Don.  Now, you may ask how I know this. Well, I am not going to say exactly how I got the following document, because there may be some kind of silly law about Interstate Transmission  Of Anonymous Letters, or some kind of NSA problem with stuff written in Klingon, but you can read it for yourself:

Also, here is a pdf of it, in case you have problems reading the Image:

Anonymous Patriot Letter to Mario Apuzzo, Esq

You can see from this Wiki blurb that the Marquis de Sade often went under the pen name, Anonymous!

During Sade’s time of freedom, beginning in 1790, he published several of his books anonymously.

In 1801 Napoleon Bonaparte ordered the arrest of the anonymous author of Justine and Juliette. Sade was arrested at his publisher’s office and imprisoned without trial; first in the Sainte-Pélagie prison and, following allegations that he had tried to seduce young fellow prisoners there, in the harsh fortress of Bicêtre.

Now, if The Law of Nations was anonymously translated in 1797, that falls squarely within De Sade’s Anonymous Period.  Plus, it is well known that Apuzzo just luuuvvvvveees the French! He thinks they are the inspiration for our Constitution. Add that to the letter above from the anonymous Patriot, and it is clear that Apuzzo is going to try to sneak a Marquis de Sade translation of the Law of Nations past everybody.

Some people may think that this is just Fantasy, and that I am just making all this up, and that Mario Apuzzo, Esq. has a real, live legitimate source for what he is going to write. Well, I think that would be the real Fantasy!

Note 1. Anonymous Authors.  Apparently, the Marquis de Sade started something by using Anonymous to publish his type of writing. Note that 12 out of 30 naughty books in the Victorian Period style are written by Anonymous or Unknown Writer. Plus, some of the names there look fake to me! Like Victoria Vane???

The British Hysterical Society Presents Lord Monckton (Or, A Flashman In The Pan???)

I learned that he was in the diplomatic, which didn’t surprise me, for he was a born toad-eater with a great gift of genteel sponging and an aversion to work.

Well, I have run across Lord Monckton before, and he seems a little too interested in the whole Birther issue, if you know what I mean. He is definitely educated, and speaks well.  He is fun to listen to and presents himself in a dignified manner. But I have to wonder what in the world a person like that is doing being a birth certificate Birther??? I mean, it’s like finding a chimpanzee in a tuxedo, and you just get this feeling that something’s not right.

Now, I am not going not make the same mistake as Wayne Allyn Root and CDR Kerchner, and try to tell you that my gut instincts and hunches are the same thing as documentation. Because they aren’t.  But I get the same feeling I got when I used to see this commercial:

The music is nice, the soldiers are all in step, and the narrator is polished. But you know if you give “nineteen dollars ninety” for this ring, you’re probably getting screwed. (See the notes below for a very funny youtube video about this offer, and a hilarious New York Post article about the company, which started off as the British Historical Society, but sort of had to reinvent itself a few times.)

Anyway, back on topic, Lord Monckton of Brenchley  is in the headlines again over at ObamaReleaseYourRecords, via World Net Daily, with this:

Exclusive: Christopher Monckton of Brenchley calls GOP treasonous for eligibility inaction

http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2012/08/lord-christopher-monckton-gop.html

and promoting this sort of foolishness:

It is 24 pages long, and here is a pdf file of it, in case you have problems with scribd at the site. (I think they can only process one of these per household, so behave yourself accordingly.)

Moncktons A Hereditary Peers Briefing Paper (LONDON JUNE 2012)

The document is put together in a very professional manner, and contains text, images and exhibits. It is very readable. However, when you wring out the mop, all you get is the same dirty water that Deputy Jerry Corsi and the Cold Case Posse emptied out on us. I do love the shtick on page 17, Implications For Her Majesty’s Government, where Obama’s hostility is evidenced by his removal of Churchill’s Bust.

That whole section is put in to elevate the Birther madness to a level of seriousness where some court may look at it. I expect to see this document introduced as evidence or as an exhibit to future Birther legal ventures. I would not be surprised to see Requests for a New Hearing start cropping up from the Birther Hinterland, with this as support.

While I absolutely adore the grace and elegance of this particular document, it is still nothing but a bunch of nonsense. This time with an English theme, as opposed to The Cowboy and Indian aura of Sheriff Joe’s horse opera. But all the fancy airs and lah de dahs of Royalty and Peers and Her Majesty and Oxley of Sarbanes and Monckton of Brenchley is going to sell like hotcakes out there among the Birthers and others who would pay the “nineteen dollars ninety” for the ring, if they only had the dough.

Ta Ta.

Note 1. Youtube video. Here is avery funny video on the ring commercial. Pay attention to the seal. Put down any liquids you are holding, unless you hate your keyboard.

Note 2: The New York Post Article. This is a scream, and you have to read the whole thing! Here are a few excerpts, and the link follows:

It’s hard to tell what’s the bigger fake — the $20 Princess Diana ring or the company hawking it.

This week, customer-service reps enthusiastically pushed Telebrands’ bogus royal organization while taking advance orders for its simulated sapphire and cubic-zirconium ring.

Asked to describe the purpose of the British Historic/Historical Society, a Telebrands rep who identified herself as Sophie put a Post reporter on hold “to verify that information before releasing it to you.” Returning to the phone after several minutes, she said, “The society was founded in 1868 and remains the foremost society in Great Britain promoting and defending the scholarly study of the past.” [Squeeky Note: Oh, great shades of the Birthers. . .]

Told that she’d just described the Royal Historical Society, a legit, London-based organization, and not the so-called British Historical Society, Sophie said, “It’s the same thing.”

“So the Royal Historical Society is endorsing and selling me this ring?”

“Yes,” Sophie said.

Note 3.  The Alternate Title.  A Flashman in the Pan. Well,  the full Flashman reference follows, but think here, a scoundrel.  Meanwhile, the idiom itself means:

1 a sudden spasmodic effort that accomplishes nothing;

2. one that appears promising but turns out to be disappointing or worthless.

Note 4. Flashman. Oh, where do I begin? My father was really big into this series of books. I remember him sitting in his recliner and LHAO as he read these. Anyway, Wiki says:

Flashman is a 1969 novel by George MacDonald Fraser. It is the first of the Flashman novels.

Presented within the frame of the supposedly discovered historical Flashman Papers, this book describes the bully Flashman from Tom Brown’s Schooldays. The book begins with an explanatory note saying that the Flashman Papers were discovered in 1965 during a sale of household furniture in Ashby, Leicestershire. The papers are attributed to Harry Paget Flashman, who is not only the bully featured in Thomas Hughes’ novel, but also a well known Victorian military hero (in Fraser’s fictional England). The papers were supposedly written between 1900 and 1905.

The subsequent publishing of these papers, of which Flashman is the first, contrasts the previously believed exploits of a (fictional) hero with his own more scandalous account, which shows the life of a cowardly bully. Flashman begins with his own account of expulsion from Rugby and ends with his fame as the “Hector of Afghanistan”, detailing his life from 1839 to 1842 and his travels to Scotland, India, and Afghanistan. It also contains a number of notes by the author, in the guise of a fictional editor, giving additional historical information on the events described. The history in these books is quite accurate; most of the people Flashman meets are real people.

Flashman’s expulsion from Rugby for drunkenness leads him to join the Army for what he hopes will be a sinecure. He joins the11th Regiment of Light Dragoons commanded by Lord Cardigan whom he toadies in his best style. After an affair with a fellow officer’s lover, he is forced to fight a duel but wins after promising a large sum of money to the pistol loader to give his opponent a blank load in his gun. He does not kill his opponent but instead delopes and accidentally shoots the top off a bottle thirty yards away, an action that gives him instant fame and the respect of the Duke of Wellington.

However, once it was found out what they were fighting over, Flashman is stationed in Scotland. He is quartered with the Morrison family, and soon enough he takes advantage of one of the daughters, Elspeth. After a forced marriage, Flashman is required to resign the Hussars due to marrying below his station. He is given another option, to make his reputation in India.

Note 5.  The Image Caption. This is a quotation from Flashman on the March, p.10, Harper Collins, paperback edition 2005. I found it here at this very addictive website, Flashman’s Retreat:

Note 6. The Image Easter Egg.  It’s All Balls And Banbury  The above website referenced this:

The town’s reputation for untruth underlies later sayings: the apparently proverbial phrase ‘Banbury glosses’ was used in 1530 and 1571 to mean twistings of the truth, (fn. 45) and may be the origin of later allusions to a tall story as ‘a Banbury story’; (fn. 46) another saying, recorded in 1660, may be related to the above but more likely originated in a specific incident: ‘as wise as the mayor of Banbury, who would prove that Henry III was before Henry II’; (fn. 47) a further obscure proverb, recorded in 1639, was ‘he has brought his hogs to a Banbury market’. (fn. 48)
