Sharon Rondeau Appeals To The Vatican???

Sharon Rondeau Just Had A Thing For Big Lugs In Uniform (Click on Image to Activate.)

Well, once again I got a document from a secret source. This one purports to be an Open Letter from Sharon Rondeau to Pope Francis. I am not sure if it is for real or not, but following her recent missive to the Pentagon, who knows?  (see Note 2 below.) The letterhead seems genuine. Anyway, I report, you decide! Here’s the letter. Just click on it to make it larger. There is also a pdf of the letter which follows the image, which is also very easy to read.

Birther Letter to the Pope

Here is a pdf file of the letter:

Birther Letter to the Pope

Sooo, I don’t know if that was real or not. Which, it is kind of a shame when a group of people do so many silly things that you can’t tell for sure whether something is real, or just a parody.

Note 1. The Image. Once again, this is an image from the great 1954 film, Devil Girl From Mars. I really like using this film for Sharon Rondeau. You can watch the entire film at youtube:

The Image Easter Egg is based on R.U.R., one of the first stories about robots. Wiki says,

R.U.R. is a 1920 science fiction play in the Czech language by Karel Čapek. R.U.R. stands for Rossum’s Universal Robots, an English phrase used as the subtitle in the Czech original.[1] It premiered in 1921 and introduced the word “robot” to the English language and to science fiction as a whole.[2]

R.U.R. quickly became famous and was influential early in the history of its publication.[3][4][5] By 1923, it had been translated into thirty languages,[3][6]

The play begins in a factory that makes artificial people, made of synthetic organic matter, called “robots.” Unlike the modern usage of the term, these creatures are closer to the modern idea of cyborgs or even clones, as they can be mistaken for humans and can think for themselves. They seem happy to work for humans, although that changes, and a hostile robot rebellion leads to the extinction of the human race. Čapek later took a different approach to the same theme in War with the Newts, in which non-humans become a servant class in human society.

R.U.R is dark but not without hope, and was successful in its day in both Europe and the United States.[citation needed] John Clute has lauded R.U.R. as “a play of exorbitant wit and almost demonic energy” and lists the play as one of the “classic titles” of inter-war science fiction.[7]

Note 2. Sharon Rondeau’s Letter to the Pentagon. The Birther Think Tank ran a story yesterday about Ms. Rondeau contacting the  military authorities about Obama’s eligibility.

Sharon Rondeau: When The Un-informed Authorities Meet The Uniformed Authorities!!!

Devil-Girl-From-Mars-DVD-review

After They Explained The Meaning Of GFY! To Sharon Rondeau, She Just Stood There With A Blank Look On Her face

Sharon Rondeau, the indefatigable editor of the Post and Email, tried to involve the military in her Birther silliness and got uniformly dismissed. And not politely. Here is an excerpt from ObamaReleaseYourRecords:

The military has remained silent on the Obama eligibility/identity issue. At 7:13 a.m. EDT on Thursday, The Post & Email contacted Public Affairs Officer Lt. Col. Catherine Wilkinson for comment on the declaration of forgery regarding Obama’s documentation:

Hi Cathy, my newspaper has been following the Obama eligibility/identity question for the last four years since its inception in August 2009.

May I obtain a statement from the military about whether or not they are aware that the long-form birth certificate image posted on the White House website since April 27, 2011 has been declared a “computer-generated forgery” by a law enforcement investigation? http://www.mcsoccp.org/joomla

Is the military aware that a congressional investigation into the forgery might be launched as a result of the Cold Case Posse’s investigation? http://www.wnd.com/2013/06/obama-birth-certificate-doubts-head-to-capitol

Does the military have the ability to analyze the Obama birth certificate image and Selective Service registration form to determine if they are authentic? If so, why has that not been done?

What are the ramifications if the U.S. military has been taking orders from someone who achieved the office of president and commander-in-chief by fraud?

Thank you very much.

At approximately 9:30 a.m. EDT, we received a response from Lt. Col. J. Todd Breasseale, which reads:

Dear Ms. Rondeau,
> We can only assume that your query is not a legitimate question and is some sort of nonsensical joke.
> We are happy to consider reality-based requests, but do not entertain absurdities from the web.
>
> Very respectfully,

There is more at this link:

http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2013/08/report-us-military-responds-to-obamas.html

Ms. Rondeau pretended to be confused by this, and you can read at the link above how she sent a second indignant inquiry, and got a polite one word response, “Noted.”

But, should she really be surprised? The Cold Case Posse supposedly has proof that Obama’s online image of his long form birth certificate is a forgery. Yet, no prosecutor has touched it. Gee, I wonder why that is??? Don’t you really try to get a prosecutor to look into something that is allegedly criminal BEFORE you contact the Pentagon??? What are they supposed to do anyway, invade Pennsylvania Avenue or something???

She may as well have contacted the Military Authorities about phony Moon Landings. Rondeau got the response that she knew she would get, and now she gets to play Birther Victim, and get some tears and group hugs from the other indignant Birthers.

Whatever.

Make Way For Another Commander Fitzpatrick Shipwreck!!!

girl9 fritz guerin sailing-duo-c-1902_0

Ever Dauntless, Francis And Sharon Sail Off Into Uncharted Waters

Walter “Citizen’s Arrest!” Fitzpatrick, late of the county pokey, is trying on a brand new legal tactic.  Since the local grand jury won’t take him seriously, and the citizen’s grand juries have proven to be a non-starter, Fitzpatrick is trying to go straight to the Federal judge.  You may wonder whatever gave him the idea that he could ask a Federal judge to speak to the Grand Jury???

Well, courtesy of FogBow, (see Note 2 below for links) here is a copy of the June 14, 2013 letter with the magic sentence in it, “A private citizen may go directly to the Federal Grand Jury and give information only with the permission of the Court or the United States Attorney’s office.” This language was from an earlier denial on April 6, 2011.

Walt Denial  1

Walt Denial 2

(Click on Image to make larger.)

 

And, since the U.S. Attorney and a magistrate judge said no, Walt decided to go straight to the Judge Varlan! Of course Fitzpatrick Chronicler, Sharon Rondeau, is all over it. Here are a few excerpts from a June 14, 2013 Post and Email article, “Make Way For Commander Fitzpatrick”,  that was smuggled out from behind the P&E Paywall in a homemade hot air balloon. I would provide a link, but Rondeau has it fixed to where you can’t even link to the article in question.  So, a general link to The P&E follows this excerpt:

Fitzpatrick has evidence that Killian and two other prosecutors have committed crimes in the case of a man who was said to have been in a place where he was not, then convicted of a crime based on the false statements contained in an FBI agent’s affidavit.

After finishing his 15-minute phone call with Gibson [Judge Varlan’s clerk], Fitzpatrick contacted several members of the local media in eastern Tennessee who have previously reported erroneously on the case. One hung up on him; one editor appeared interested, according to Fitzpatrick; and a third asked Fitzpatrick to recontact her if he secured an appointment to appear before the grand jury.

Fitzpatrick said that he stressed to Ms. Gibson that the information he possesses “has to do with my report of criminal conduct on the part of government officials,” including Killian.

“We could be onto something of extreme historical importance and significance at this moment by having people go to a federal judge and say, ‘According to your own letter, it’s either a federal judge or the U.S. Attorney; the U.S. Attorney is conflicted in this because it’s the U.S. Attorney who has committed crimes. So people from around the country can come in and say, ‘Make way for Commander Fitzpatrick,’” Fitzpatrick said. “People can give exposure to the fact that U.S. Attorneys are the gate-guards, and the only other way in is through a federal judge. So let’s see how this plays out.”

http://www.thepostemail.com/

So, there was one piece of good news for Fitzpatrick. With a broken computer, he can make less of an ass out of himself. But the bad news far outweighs the good. I read through all the Madisonville Hoax stuff on Fitzpatrick’s JagHunter page and there are a few interesting points that seem to mitigate in Huff’s favor. I asked my BFF Fabia Sheen, Esq., an attorney, about this. She said that warrants often contain overstated information put in to insure that the officer can convince a judge or prosecutor to give them what they want.

She also said that prosecutors often overcharge on counts to provide a little cushion in subsequent plea negotiations. Whether that is the case here, will never be given a fair review because of the nutty nature of the people making the claim. She said that courts, in general, are not disposed to overturn decisions. That is why most appeals fail, and most motions for new trials are not granted. Plus, Huff had a chance to dispute the evidence offered by the government at his trial.

She said that the credibility of the person making the claim is a factor. Therefore, a good law firm, with a solid reputation and no history of making spurious and unfounded motions, will get more attention than a couple of wackadoodles who file “hundreds of pages of documents” and “repeated requests” to use the language from the letter above.  It is even worse if the wackadoodles are well known for believing nutty Birther conspiracy theories and for filing vexatious and meritless legal actions. Like Fabia said, judges only have 168 hours in their week and they must prioritize.

That is just the way things are.

Sharon Rondeau Shines The Light Of Truth And Justice On People Who Write Nasty Letters!

Well, over on the front page of the Post and Email, Editor Sharon “Mommy!” Rondeau comes to the aid of her reader, Robert Laity, who is being mercilessly pummeled in the presses by some guy who had the audacity to write this:

Dude, Really?????

The bull**** “Birther” obsession AGAIN??

Get over it and get a grip on REALITY!!!

Orly Taitz is a ****** NUT JOB from the former Soviet Union.

UNBELIEVABLE

According to the story, Robert Laity emailed a tip to the Examiner about the alleged Orly Taitz whistleblower. This tip led to a story.   I am not sure if the horribly offensive, obscene, and scandalous remark was emailed to him, or put in the comment section, because it does not now show in the 135 comments.

Here is the link to the Examiner story:

http://www.examiner.com/article/whistleblower-says-obama-received-financial-aid-as-foreign-student

Here is the link to the Post and Email article:

http://www.thepostemail.com/2013/06/27/reader-receives-obscene-response-after-sending-tip-to-two-news-outlets/

Mr. Laity also comments at The Birther Think Tank from time to time, and was the subject of a June 20, 2013 article here, It Came From The Post and Email!!! (See Note 2 below for link.)

I heard from an anonymous source, that Mr. Laity is currently recovering from this trauma under the watchful eye of medical professionals who have thoughtfully provided him with 24 hour around the clock monitoring. He should be released from the 72 hour evaluation period sometime on Monday. Supposedly, Rondeau has visited the ward, and brought soup.

But I can not confirm this.

Note 1. The Image. This is Patricia Laffan in the 1954 Oscar Winning, Devil Girl From Mars! Wiki says:

Devil Girl from Mars is a black and white 1954 British science fiction film, directed by David MacDonald. It was adapted from a stage play and has become a cult favorite.

Nyah, commanding female alien dressed in black vinyl, is headed for London. She is part of the advanced team that is looking for men to replace the dying male population on their planet. However, because of damage to her spaceship caused by entering Earth’s atmosphere, she is forced to land in the remote Scottish moors. She is armed with a raygun that can paralyze or kill, and has a menacing robot.

The film takes place mostly in the lounge bar of a Scottish country inn, the Bonnie Charlie, somewhere in Inverness-shire. The alien occasionally enters the room, makes threats, then leaves so the residents can contemplate her words.

As I read the Wiki article, I could not help but notice the many similarities to Birtherism, and bolded them:

Rolling Stone columnist Doug Pratt called it a “delightfully bad movie“. The “acting is really bad and the whole thing is so much fun you want to run to your local community theater group and have them put it on next, instead of Brigadoon.” American film reviewer Leonard Maltin said the film is a “hilariously solemn, high camp British imitation of U.S. cheapies”. he reviewer for the Monthly Film Bulletin (1954) wrote that the “settings, dialogue, characterisation and special effects are of a low order, but even their modest unreality has its charm.

There is really no fault in this film that one would like to see eliminated. Everything, in its way, is quite perfect.” In Going to Mars, the authors described the film as “an undeniably awful but oddly interesting” film. They noted that the plot was “more a reflection of the 1950s view of politics and the era’s inequality of the sexes than a thoughtful projection of present or future possibilities”.

Eric S. Rabkin likens the character Nyah to a dominatrix and even a neo-nazi. He said of the film that, “a host of charged images and subconscious fears” are handled with a broad camp irony. Otherwise, “without some underlying psychological engagement, how could anyone sit through a movie so badly made”?

Sharon Be-Bopped Down The Steps To Tell Her Reader That She Was Doing Two Stories On Him!

Well, I think I would be pretty embarrassed if my readers were getting personal visits from the Secret Service, but obviously Sharon Rondeau, Editor of the Post and Email, is thankful that she has something interesting to write about for a change. This is a whole lot more fun than another Open Letter from Montgomery Blair Sibley waxing eloquent about how Obama has chased away all  the Blue Birds from his window sill. But still embarrassing.

Here is an excerpt from the story:

“THAT IS ABOVE MY PAY GRADE”

by Robert Laity

The U.S. Secret Service is part of the Department of Homeland Security

(Jun. 20, 2013) — Two agents of the U.S. Secret Service paid me a visit today, June 19,2013. Special Agent Greg Gramiccioni and another agent of the Buffalo, New York Office of Homeland Security/Secret Service  came to my house to discuss my outspokenness regarding Barack Obama. I was sleeping on a living room chair with my arms inside my shirt because I was a bit cold. I had the Central Air on.  The agents were allowed in and saw me taking my arms out of my shirt. The agent had his hand close to his gun and said that it would be best if I took my hands out of my shirt which I was already in the process of doing. Agent Gramiccioni asked me if I knew why they were there. I said that it was probably about my criticism of Obama. The agent said that my use of the words “Execution” and “Death”  may be problematic. I told them that I would not be the one doing any executing and told them that I qualified my statements with the words “If Convicted” of the Treason that he now stands accused of. Agent Gramiccioni read from an online comment I made.

The Agents asked if they could look around. I said yes. Three years ago two agents of the Department of Justice visited me with the same concerns.  The most recent visit by federal agents involved Department of Homeland Security/Secret Service agents. I was asked several questions. Do I Travel, have I been to Washington, DC and if I own Guns.  I was further asked if I ever visit Bomb making websites or other similar websites to which I responded No. I told the agents that I believe that they are risking their lives for a fraud.

My Brother-in-Law was in my home at the time. The agent was a bit vigilant, putting his hand near his gun again when he heard my brother in law coming out of the bathroom. The agent asked “who is that”? I identified him as my brother in law to the agent.  My brother in law was also interviewed by the agents who gave him a business card and asked that he contact them if I went out of State or if I leave the Country.

http://www.thepostemail.com/2013/06/20/reader-receives-visit-from-secret-service/print

About a half hour, the agents left and everybody lived happily ever after. Rondeau, who Patrick McKinnion calls, The Professional Seditionist, not only was NOT embarrassed, she ran TWO STORIES about the incident. I would have cut and pasted excerpts from the front page, but she has it set where you can’t do that. Usually, I just screen shot the page, but frankly, these stories aren’t worth the effort.

This incident has to be good for another couple of stories, sooo I expect to see these headlines in the future:

I get the shivers just looking at it, and if a normal picture is worth a thousand words, this one is worth ten thousand. The whole story is just laid out there before you, and you can almost hear the sound of her feet hitting the steps. Anyway, the artist’s name is Joshua Hoffine, and here is a link to his website where he explains how he makes these images. This may not be your cup of tea, but I like a break from the pre-Raphaelites sometimes:

The Plundered Paradise Of The Post and Email!!!

You Could Bring Your Own Birther, But Sharon Rondeau Insisted On The Cover Charge!!!

Imagine a Birther/Patriot Island Paradise! Tuesdays and Fridays would be dress-up day, and Special Snowflake Patriots could put on their tri-corner hats, grab a fife, or a drum, or a musket, and march around to their hearts delight! They could even sing the Patriot Song

The P and E Patriot Song
(to the tune of Streets Of Laredo):

Patriot 1:    I see by your outfit that YOU are a Patriot!

Patriot 2:   I see by your outfit YOU’RE a Patriot, too!

Patriots 1 and 2: We see by our outfits that WE are both Patriots!

Patriot Chorus:  If YOU get an outfit, YOU can be a Patriot, too!!!

At which point, Empress Sharon Rondeau, points out that P and E sells Patriot Outfits in sizes up to 6XL at the P and E Store!

Bestest of all, even if nasty old Obots and Anti-Birther trespassers made it to the Blessed Isle, they would face an Impenetrable  Wall Of Pay to prevent them from harassing the merry crew and interfering with their fun!

Sharon Rondeau is presiding over just such a lost kingdom. The cheapest of the lowly pay two bucks a month to enter the cloistered site,  and are stripped naked on the way out. They are permitted to take nothing with them. However, Birther paradise, with its tawdry Birther love slaves, is slowly disintegrating before her very eyes! Paradise is being PLUNDERED! Some Birthers and Patriots are having their fun for free! Here is an excerpt from Empress Rondeaus’ royal snit:

The Post & Email’s Work Stolen, Reposted, Altered without Permission

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTED BY U.S. COPYRIGHT LAW

by Sharon Rondeau

(Jun. 16, 2013) — The Post & Email has become aware that despite copy-protection and copyright notices on every article it publishes, various bloggers are reproducing our work without our permission or proper remuneration. To our knowledge, those who have stolen our most recent articles on Glenn Beck’s news are not even subscribers to The Post & Email.

Because of extraordinary expenses made necessary by Obots hacking the site over more than two years, The Post & Email must ask a small subscription fee for its work, which we believe is unique on the web.  There is also a free level which offers limited content.  We believe our rates are the lowest for the high-quality news and editorial we provide.  The stealing of our work is injurious to our attempts to grow into a full-fledged news organization.

Making copies of copyrighted news reports is the same as copying music:  illegal.  The copyright owner will never reap the rewards of his or her diligent work if it is copied without remuneration for the time and effort required to produce it.  If America is to regain any semblance of capitalism, its people must think like capitalists rather than take other people’s work and expect it to be free.

http://www.thepostemail.com/2013/06/16/the-post-emails-work-stolen-reposted-altered-without-permission/

Whoa, I haz a confuzzled! How can you rip off Glenn Beck’s news from the TV or some other website,  dress it up a little, put it on your website, and then complain when somebody else takes it off yours, and puts it on their website???  Particularly when they properly attribute the news back to the P and E. The news itself, is NOT subject to copyright.  If a person reads in The Post and Email that Glenn Beck says Justice Roberts was pressured to approve Obamacare, then relays that same information, that is not necessarily an infringement,  as long as the form of the information is different.

However, it appears people have simply been cutting and pasting and forwarding the entirety of her Internet Articles to new places.  Frankly, she is nuts to complain about it. I am sure she reaches a far larger audience that she would otherwise. Some of those more distant viewers are likely to visit her website, and she has a better chance of making a subscription sale. This is particularly advantageous when you are a relatively small website and not highly or widely respected.

First, you lasso an audience in, and then you grab for the money. This is how the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal work. Plus, they give the reader a number of free articles without a subscription. This is because they want people to visit their website and grow to love it over time. To come to need the website along with their Cheerios and toast in the morning. To get to where visiting the website is a routine. But that is how people think who don’t live in self-imposed isolation from the Real World.

Not so much at P and E. Like any group of animals isolated on an island, there is a lot of inbreeding going on at The Post and Email. Most of her articles are just a rehash of the same Birther nonsense that is on all the Birther websites.  Or a rehash of the other latest breaking news making the rounds of the Patriot Circuit. By and large, if you don’t read it at the P and E, you can read it at a hundred other places.

About the only original material is the occasional Open Letter from an Indignant Birther, or Outraged Patriot.  Monroe County Tennessee gets an undue amount of attention, but that will probably end whenever Walter Fitzpatrick starts taking his meds on a regular basis. Because of all the wackadoodle content, even when Rondeau breaks a story, she doesn’t get any respect. Witness the reception of her EXCLUSIVE that a Glenn Beck Interview wasn’t coming off after all”

Glenn Beck’s Earthshaking News Postponed until Monday.

Breaking: Exclusive: Sen. Mike Lee Not Scheduled to Appear on Beck’s Monday Show
Wingnuts1 day ago • Views: 389

Right out of Wingnut Central, Sharon Rondeau’s Post and Efail discovers that GLENN BECK LIES.

WHAT HAPPENED?

On Friday, radio show Glenn Beck announced that Sen. Mike Lee would be a guest on his show on Monday, June 17, 2013, to say that surveillance of lawmakers by the Obama campaign occurred during the run-up to the 2012 elections, which was stated by Rep. Steve King that day.

At 12:12 p.m. EDT, The Post & Email contacted Sen. Lee’s office and asked for the media person. We were placed on hold for a few moments and connected with Emily Bennion. We asked her if a press release about the contention that Roberts was pressured would be issued after his appearance on Beck’s show today, to which Ms. Bennion responded that, contrary to Beck’s announcement, Sen. Lee is not scheduled to appear on Beck’s show. “We’ll have to contact the producer of his show,” she told us.

I bolded and italicized the lead in above: Right out of Wingnut Central, Sharon Rondeau’s Post and Efail discovers that GLENN BECK LIES.  This is her real problemnot that a few of her subscribers spread her stuff for free. Rondeau is not a bad writer, at all. Her stories are coherent and presented in a professional fashion.  But her respectable stories are all mixed in with the idiot stuff. Take a look at today’s front page:

The stories on the left would be worth taking a gander out. The stories on the right???  You could set Earnest Hemingway to writing that stuff and it would still go nowhere except to a very limited bunch of nuts, and a very limited number of people who like to laugh at those nuts. I can understand and relate to Rondeaus’s desire to make some money off all her work. Blogging takes a lot of time and energy. But Rondeau errs when she says:

The stealing of our work is injurious to our attempts to grow into a full-fledged news organization.

No. It is the nature of your stories that are injurious to your attempts to grow.  What person from the wider non-Birther universe  is going to believe anything you write about California State Lawmakers when the story is sitting right next to Will Dan Pfieffer Respond About the Forgery??  If you are attached to nutty conspiracy theories, at least pick out some with wider appeal. Like Big Foot, Roswell, and the Alien Autopsies.

And quit protecting your Birther and silly-ass Patriot Special Snowflakes.  You don’t earn any respect by shielding them (and yourself) from valid criticisms.

Note 1. The Images This is the Empress of the Galopagos, Baroness Eloise Wehrborn, and one of her lovers,  the toothless dentist Robert Phillipson. I thought she was a most appropriate representative of what usually happens when people flee the real world for supposed Paradises. Here is a brief blurb about her, by Dunwoodie Hall:

MANSACTION

The name of Baroness Eloise Wehrborn is now virtually forgotten in the dusty pages of history. Yet a little over a quarter of a century ago this voluptuous noblewoman from Vienna shocked European high-hats first as a sexy belly dancer in the cabarets of every capital city and then as the self-appointed Empress of a Pacific island which she ruled with a Colt .45 slung around her curvy waist.

No story in the annals of violence can match the fantastic and bizarre account of the itchy-fingered Baroness who turned her tropical paradise in the Galapagos Islands into a hell-hole of murder and lust. From her crude castle of stones, clay and palm logs, Eloise ruled like a female Napoleon, brandishing the ugly .45 with which she shot to death a number of victims in her mad drive for power.

From the time she was 16, Eloise was a problem child to the Austrian family that boasted of an old noble lineage. Instead of finishing her education at the convent, she escaped and set her sights on Paris. There in the Left Bank she achieved a kind of notoriety with her escapades among the cult of free-love practitioneers.  Thus in July 1932 she left Marseilles with Paul [sic, Alfred] Rudolph Lorenz, who was her dancing instructor, and Robert Philippson, weakling son of a wealthy German merchant.

The trio’s wild plan met with a temporary snag when they arrived in Panama. They had to wait several months there until they could scrounge up a ship to take them to the Galapagos. Thus only in December of 1932 did they eventually land on the tiny isle of Floreana in the Galapagos. Hardly had the boat, which brought them to Floreana, disappeared over the horizon when the crazed Eloise showed her true colors.

She stripped off her lady-like clothing to the bare essentials. Strapped around her hips was a low-slung holster with a pearl-handled revolver. From her suitcase she extracted a short, but mean-looking whip. Both Lorenz and Philippson looked upon this act as quaint, something of a delightfully eccentric touch. Their surprise was turned into sheer amazement, however, when Eloise—her blonde hair bobbing in the sea breeze—jerked out the Colt, fired two shots in the sand, gave a short snap with the whip and proclaimed herself Empress of the Galapagos Islands.

No two men could have been more stunned than Lorenz and Philippson. They had pictured this jaunt as one of romance and excitement. Now they recognized the Baroness was simply out of her mind. She had been plotting an entirely different set-up from what the two would-be adventurers had anticipated. And when Eloise informed them they would serve as her “slaves,” the men realized they were the dupes of a twisted mind that would know no bounds.

And, an upcoming movie with the voice of Cate Blanchett and others:

No wonder that all these years later those events inspired documentary film makers Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine to co-produce and direct “The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden,” featuring the voices of  Cate Blanchett, Diane Kruger, Connie Nielsen, Josh Radnor, Sebastian Koch, Thomas Kretschmann and Gustaf Skarsgard. As reported in “The Wrap,” The film is now in post-production and will be released later this year.

Note 2. Plundering Paradise. This is from the title of a book about the people who live in The Galapagos.

PLUNDERING PARADISE: The Hand of Man on the Galpagos Islands

Michael D’Orso, Author . HarperCollins $24.95 (368p) ISBN 978-0-06-019390-4

With rich, witty prose as colorful as the characters he describes, D’Orso reveals the human side of the Galápagos, including the owner of the Galápagos Hotel, Jack Nelson, an American who has lived there since 1967; Christy Gallardo, an American who visited the island as a tourist and fell in love with and married an Ecuadorean man; and Mary Rodriguez, the wife of a Galápagan farmer who in 1992 opened the first and only “gentlemen’s club” called Quatro y Media. This is a stellar study of the alchemy of man and nature.

Note 3. Bad Fiction has a great Internet Article about this, too. It is at the link, under June 16, 2013. Here is an exceprt, and to protect your keyboard, be sure you swallow any Coke or Pepsi or Franzia White Zinfadel wine before you read it:

And finally, since when has it taken hours for Sharon Rondeau to research anything? For that matter, since when HAS Sharon Rondeau researched anything. Her usual criteria is that if it’s against Obama, then she’ll print it. Unless she’s trying to claim that articles that claim President Obama is a “Reptile Person” are “well researched…..”

“Because of extraordinary expenses made necessary by Obots hacking the site over more than two years, “So some right-wing nutcase copies and pastes Rondeau’s crap all over the place, and yet somehow it’s the fault of the “Obots”?? Ooookay then.

“The Post & Email must ask a small subscription fee for its work, which we believe is unique on the web. “It’s not unique. There are pay sites all over the place, and conspiracy sites too. Sharon Rondeau simply thinks that the same people who can get this crap for free at The Blaze, Stormfront, and other sites like those, are willing to feed her delusion that her blog is a money-making journalistic source.

Professional seditionist Sharon Rondeau has a problem – her target audience is too cheap to subscribe to her blog. Yet she can’t complain too much because they’re her target audience.

Note 4. Special Snowflakes. I first heard Michele Malkin say this on Megyn Kelly’s show yesterday. Maybe I am NOT getting out enough??? Here is what it means, from the Urban Dictionary:

A member of that newly-adult, me’er-than-me generation which expects attention and praise just for being themselves — doing anything to deserve it is completely optional.

Oh, he’s too much of special snowflake to get a day job — his mom’s paying the rent while he hangs out waiting for the perfect high-paying project to come along. I guess the market for C-minus filmmaking majors is a little soft right now or something.

A problem person. A person who thinks they are unique, different and therefor more special that everyone else. Derived from too many parents telling their kids they are “special,” like a “snowflake.” Typically used by used by those in the customer service or retail industry to refer to bad customers.

That lady was a special snowflake, in a blizzard of other special snowflakes; shes unique, just like everyone else.


Sharon Rondeau’s Basic Instinct Moment!!!

Madame DeRondeau Had So Much Practice, That She Could Knit "O-b-a-m-a" Without Even Looking

Sharon Rondeau, Editor of The Post and Email,  fell victim to a Basic Instinct Moment a few days ago.  Don’t worry – the only thing she exposed was the basic flaw in Birther legal theory. You can see how it happened from her Internet Article:

Are Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey Traitors?

PUTATIVE DEFENSE SECRETARY SAYS CONGRESS “IRRELEVANT” IN WAR DECISIONS by Sharon Rondeau (Mar. 10, 2012) — On March 8, 2012, putative Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told Congress that it was “irrelevant” during testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee. Panetta claimed that “international permission” dictates the policy of the U.S. military.

http://www.thepostemail.com/2012/03/10/are-leon-panetta-and-gen-martin-dempsey-traitors/

The rest of the Internet Article is hidden to non-subscribers. But you can see where Rondeau is going. Her basic instincts are telling her, “HELL NO! Americans do not cede their rights and powers to the international community which may permit the exercise thereof as decided by committee vote.”

She is right. Which makes it all the less comprehensible why she and the rest of the Birthers demand the rest of the country recognize international law when they propagandize about Emerich de Vattel and the two citizen-parents theory???  And when they strut around and preach how British Citizenship Law trumps American Citizenship Law inside the United States.

Excuse me, but the last time I  looked, British laws do not permit their Citizens to keep and bear arms the way American laws do.  Yet, if one were to preach that British gun laws supersede American law inside the United States, then I would sure pity the poor persons trying to enforce that interpretation. Particularly down here in Texas.  Yet isn’t that exactly what the Birthers are saying every time they spout that “once a Brit never legit” crap???

The International Law versus American Law argument was central to the Wong Kim Ark case in 1898. The two citizen-parent Birthers either ignore Wonk Kim Ark,  or flat out lie that Chief Justice Gray manipulated the other judges to cover up for the long dead Chester Arthur.  They do this because the WKA Court  did NOT recognize international law as the controlling law in the United States.  This is how the majority decision characterized the loser’s position:

IV. It was contended by one of the learned counsel for the United States that the rule of the Roman law, by which the citizenship of the child followed that of the parent, was the true rule of international law, as now recognized in most civilized countries, and had superseded the rule of the common law, depending on birth within the realm, originally founded on feudal considerations.

This was not just the majority putting words in the mouths of the dissent. Here is what Justice Fuller, one of the two dissenting judges said:

Obviously, where the Constitution deals with common law rights and uses common law phraseology, its language should be read in the light of the common law; but when the question arises as to what constitutes citizenship of the nation, involving as it does international relations, and political, as contradistinguished from civil, status, international principles must be considered, and, unless the municipal law of England appears to have been affirmatively accepted, it cannot be allowed to control in the matter of construction.

Nationality is essentially a political idea, and belongs to the sphere of public law. Hence, Mr. Justice Story, in Shanks v. Dupont, 3 Pet. 242, 248, said that the incapacities of femes [p708] covert at common law

do not reach their political rights, nor prevent their acquiring or losing a national character. Those political rights do not stand upon the mere doctrines of municipal law, applicable to ordinary transactions, but stand upon the more general principles of the law of nations.

Before the Revolution, the view of the publicists had been thus put by Vattel:

The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. . . I say that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.

Book I, c.19, § 212.

The true bond which connects the child with the body politic is not the matter of an inanimate piece of land, but the moral relations of his parentage. . . . The place of birth produces no change in the rule that children follow the condition of their fathers, for it is not naturally the place of birth that gives rights, but extraction.

And to the same effect are the modern writers, as for instance, [p709] Bar, who says:

To what nation a person belongs is by the laws of all nations closely dependent on descent; it is almost an universal rule that the citizenship of the parents determines it — that of the father where children are lawful, and, where they are bastards, that of their mother, without regard to the place of their birth, and that must necessarily be recognized as the correct canon, since nationality is, in its essence, dependent on descent.

Int.Law. § 31.

Please notice the bolded cite to International Law.  Some Birthers are probably dancing in their seats and waving their hands to say that Vattel only applies to natural born citizens and not 14th Amendment citizens. Nope. That is even more stupid. What, common law and Amendments decide who our citizens are, but International Law determines who is eligible to be our presidents???   Absurd. No, this is a straight International Law versus American Law issue. This was also the way the issue was viewed at the time. This is from an 1898 American Law Review article:

The Wong Kim Ark case, decided by the United States Supreme Court on March 28, 1898,  decides, for the first time in that tribunal, the question whether a person born in the United States of foreign parents is a citizen of the United States under the citizenship clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The decision holds, substantially, that the language used in the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution is declaratory of the common-law doctrine, and not of the international law doctrine, and that, therefore, a person born in the United States is a citizen thereof, irrespective of the nationality or political status of his parents.

https://birtherthinktank.wordpress.com/2011/10/21/remember-the-maine-battleship-remember-the-wong-kim-ark/

Yet, 114 years later and the Birthers once again reignite a strange love affair with International Law.  As Mario Apuzzo, Esq. states

But the Founders did not rely upon the English common law to define the new national United States citizenship that they created for the new Constitutional Republic. Rather, the Founders replaced the English common law with the law of nations which became the new U.S. federal common law and the law of the federal government.

http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2009/08/law-of-nations-and-not-english-common.html

The law of nations became the law of the federal government??? Where are Sharon Rondeau’s basic instincts when she hears blathering nonsense like that??? Where are her basic instincts when the Birthers prattle on about how some Swiss guy writing about French Law trumps the Magna Carta and centuries of good solid English common law??? Where are here basic instincts when the Birthers claim international permission dictates the policy of the U.S. judiciary???

My guess is, that she and the rest of the Birthers have been so hot on Obama’s trail, that they never thought twice about it.  And it probably wouldn’t have mattered if they did.

Note 1. The Image. This is Madame Defarge, played by Blanche Yurka from the 1935 film, A Tale of Two Cities. This excerpt from a free online essay explains the basics about her:

Madame Defarge

Madame Defarge, with her strong body, strong face, and strong features, likens herself to the wind, to fire, and to an earthquake. Like these natural force that are violent and cannot be stopped, Madame Defarge is ruthless and unstoppable. She is the “watchful eye” of the revolution, always observant and aware of what is going on, although she often appears to be aloof and unconcerned. She is usually seen knitting on her “register” that lists the names of aristocratic families that must perish in the revolution. During the course of the novel, Madame Defarge actually become the symbol of the revolution, with all of its hatred and desire for vengeance.

Under her calm exterior, Madame Defarge hides a passionate anger that will not be satisfied until she gets her revenge on the aristocracy, especially the Evremonde family, who is responsible for the deaths of her brother and sister. She is determined that Darnay will be executed for being an Evremonde by birth and determines his wife and child must also perish. When she finds out they have escaped, she is beside herself with anger. Wanting proof that Lucie is indeed not hiding in her room, she struggles with Miss Pross. Ironically, during the struggle her own gun falls to the floor and discharges, killing Madame Defarge immediately.

There seems to be much similarity between  Madame Defarge and the  Birthers in the way that both try to cover up their personal desires for vengeance by cloaking those desires in a supposedly impersonal patriotic desire for justice.

Note 2. For a thorough analysis of the International Law versus American Law issue,  Dr. Conspiracy published an Internet Article on this called Chan v. DeMaio, where a Nolu Chan demolished Mr. Joseph DeMaio, who publishes frequently at Ms. Rondeau’s website:

Note 3. Basic Instinct Moment. This is a term based on the moment in the film  Basic Instinct (1992), when Actress Sharon Stone just kind of let it all hang out and went with the flow.  I see it as an instinctual response.
