Ezra Pound - In the Old Age of the Soul

I do not choose to dream; there cometh on me
Some strange old lust for deeds.
As to the nerveless hand of some old warrior
The sword-hilt or the war-worn wonted helmet
Brings momentary life and long-fled cunning,
So to my soul grown old - 
Grown old with many a jousting, many a foray, 
Grown old with namy a hither-coming and hence-going - 
Till now they send him dreams and no more deed;
So doth he flame again with might for action,
Forgetful of the council of elders,
Forgetful that who rules doth no more battle,
Forgetful that such might no more cleaves to him
So doth he flame again toward valiant doing.

Old blood and Guts
At often times, God calls some individuals for earthly service. No not Jacob, Moses, nor Abraham. This unique individual gifted with monumental standards of wit and courage matches the biblical lore of a contemporary Samson, of who killed off the enemy of ancient Israel, the Phillistines, with the Jaw-bone of an ass. Blood, guts and tanks in Pattonís hands, while a club served Samson.

Before battle God caused the phillistines to come down with ( enrods ), piles. Our Pentagon gave George the Third Army, and Patton gave the enemy hell. How could the Phillistines fight with piles on one end, and other being worked over with a jaw bone. Patton greased his tanks treds with the guts of his enemies, while Samson brought back home tens of skins of circumcised enemies. Patton raised Old Glory, when battles were won. All Israel stood tall for Samson. In Samsonís hour Young men had respect for any great personality, as the youth held such in the esteen of manhood. Since Pattonís death, this superior generalís service to his nation and country is hardly mentioned. Our once-flowering youth have lost sight of this majestic personality, giant with his nerves of steel. Collectively, our nationís youth have become gargoled-eyed with no physical icon in sight.
When a people grow tired and weary as oppression becomes unbearable, suddenly, fate steps forward in extending its withering hand of warning: Woe unto a nation that diverts the law of divine providence and the will to reject political gangsterism. In essence, the past is rejected and the future dismissed. Criminals in high seats hold America hostage.
A gathering storm expresses treason as an elite class of financial rogues, global-minded bastards, and royal sons of bitches, when a planned socially designed bankruptcy collides with a syndicated nest of scoundrels openly nourishing political rascality by default, in Washingtonís private lair, within in the District of Columbia.

Through this alley-way of theoritical aristocracy exists an umbtrella of fifty- state rule composed of a select network of financial ologarchian precepts.Truly, a master
criminal complex; the seat of politically engineered cultural and high treason holding a nation in bondage. These are in collusion with the Council on Foreign Relations.This organ of supernatural power vegetates within supreme District of Columbia, existing as an invisable tache of political incidarianism, actually nourishing global revolutionary attributes, in melting down our republic, and leveling it towards an international plethoria of innocence, thus secretly constructing a furnace of hell on earth, under the social opeum of Platos influence on ancient philosophies of Asian-Oriental religious decipleships, under the cover of democracy. This latent evil was liberalized thinking along with the City of London, its bridesmaid, dominate universal revolutionary trends. Pseudo democracy With mystical comprehension.

Tribal inquisition justifies the resurection in factoring humanty as equal with unintelligences. network factors in ancient religion and contemporary mind maniplation, in order to create absolute folly with voters. As to outstanding personalities, in this day, men like Douglas MacArthur appear and then fade away. An intelligence like George Patton is murdered. Politcal baffaling is stage-managering with congress. The house speaker questions, where was Moses when the lights went out.

The offer that he, Moses, was in the dark, when leading the Hebrews out of Egypt.Quips about Esau the Red, and Jacob, More laughter in questioning as to Jocobís ancestry. And of course, that Abraham was intellectually wall-eyed, as to the nationís seed lines evolving from him. From the beginning to the ending. This London, District of Columbia combination, is ambivalent.
Out of the past, our native population is continuiously bombarded with preditory history on
religion, and political paltrooning, in the art pyaramiding constituents as objective fools. Patton was no sycophant to Eisenhower. He won several battles in heading for Berlin.This man was the epidomy of greatness. No doubt, he prayed to the almighty before entering battle; for he new that America was composed of various nations of a conferderacy. He knew the Bill of Rights, Constitution and the Declaration of Independance. His problem was in dealing with traitors in uniform, that compromised the blood of American soldiers in the interest of alien religious philosophies contrary to Americaís best interest.

Peradventure, Patton broke military protocall. After moving into Berlin Patton learned that General Eizenhower was a low-down dirty bastard. Too, that George C. Marshal, Chief of Staff, was a front in allowing East Berlin to be taken by the Russian Red-Army. This was planned by the elite traitorship that had wired Harry S. truman. Harry was a tool of an international Rothschild financial network of Jewish and Gentile Bankers. Men do not come any lower than Harry, the sycophant. He was an internationalists and a zelalot in the pay of Near-East political gangsterism. His best pals were Russian spies, Harry D.white and Henry Morganthau, Jr., Secretary of the Treasury, and two of the most viscious and vile personalities of decent humanity, that tracked the Rogue General Eisinhower, and one more dirty bastard and traitor to America, but a useful hand in the contemporary Edomites then in world control. After the war, Patton was murdered. Unfortunately, the late President Roosevelt, was murdered in Warm Springs, Ga. This was in 1945 when the monster, Harry Solomon Truman became an unelected President. From that day onward under Truman, our republic has slowly dwindled into the police state of ineluctable determinism Generally, We must give the credit to Truman in firing Gen.MacArthur in 1950. This political rogue also relieved Patton of his military administry in 1945. Patton was an entriqueing personality and America needs a military personality for battle-front opposition. Hopefully, the next President will keep his word in searching for another MacArthur and Patton. But, pass up the Pentagon on this one.

Professional robbery and open theft by monopolies is robbery by illicit investors behind the scenes. Alien moneys are finding ways to bring privatization over America. They are moving into and expanding their hold of formerly held property in all states creating vast manipulations of state and federal laws. Their main line is to gradually shove the City/County Management System. In the long-run, high taxes drive people from their homes. All this is tied to a global touring industry. Eventually, after a full economic rape has taken place through monopolies, a city becomes bankrupt. These imported illicit investors then move out with their ill-gotten wealth, while their allies move in and buy properties as pennies on the dollar.These sort of low-down bastards should be jailed.

These sons of bitches are a threat to our national free enterprise
What in the hell is wrong with our congressional Marxianized Congress.
All recontaminated monopolists, ( corrupt professions ), of alien influence, in hock to these mud-slappers, should be run out of office on a rail. Sorry, some times I forget that I am a Christian. This criminally syndicated network of induced Mafiaism have moved in on Social Security.

In Shakesspearís ď Merchanf of Venice ď is given the wiles and ways of a pawn-broker and a gentile victim caught in the clutches of an interest-seeking shyster. The mother of all lies is that a pharasee, ( counterfeit Jew ) , was the uppermost center in this play. This is the mother of all lies; for the word Jew and the implication that pharaseeism was not evident. This master, Shakespeare, and his fore-runner, Geoffrey Chaucer, ( 1333-1400 ), actually brought the English language into its most superb usuage today. No where in eitherís works will be discovered the word Phrasee, nor Jew. An attempt here was to actually slam two innocent personalities. The word Jew ) did not appear in literature until after 1776.
Running the wheels of history in reverse back into the era of Abraham 1800 BCE, supposedly, the founding father of the Jewish race, lived in the city of Ur of Babylonia. In the book of Genisis 11:26 to 25;18. is given a brief outline of this Patriarchís life. The implication is that Abraham was of Jewish back ground and the father of Israelitish heritage. This is amasing, for the word Jew did not exist back then. Abrahamís racial lineage was back through Noahís son, Shem. This in turn was back to Adam and eve. Further, Abrahamís lineage was back through Jacobís Israel. The true Israel today is strewn throughout the nations world-wide. This is the so-called lost house of Israel. Political Israel under Primeninister Netanyahu was sat up in 1948. Zionism is a movement within this questionable socierty. All in all, from Shakespeare back to Abraham it is like a cat chasing its tail, round and round she goes, with no end in sight, untill we bring the Pharasee political strong-hold on the scene as a fradulent blood line of Satanís masterful work, in an attempt to in-breed a psycophrenic race into the royal blood-lineage of Jesus Christ.
Christ had entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. Yes, right into a pack of multi-nations, and various blood-lines busy in the trafficing of commercial goods. As to His people, only about ten percent were of the tribe of Jacob. Notice:
for anyone living in Jerusalem were known as Judeans. The word Jew is a translation for Judeans. At the foot of that cross the embosed words: King of the Judeans, not king of the Jews. Christ dismounted His animal right into three major political reformations of opposings religious configurations, the Pharasee, the Herodians, and the Sadducees. The Pharasees had their own brotherhood, somewhat like a secret organization. This group of people were of Arististoctaric political inbreds of idealistic perceptions regarding Moses and the Torah. In other words, watched over their blood line back to the Mount Seir where Moses talked with God, while this earlier sect received their own variarion from god on high.
Here is where a culmination of religious, cultural, and social compatibility becomes lost to the gentile world, in miscomprehending Satanís steadfast pretension, that counterfeit Pharaseeiem is of modern-day Judea. This is The mother of all worldly religious lies. We will learn that Lucifer is the master of lies and ideological religious perceptions that have wormed their way into Catholocism, protestantism, and Mohammedism. Satan and his family of devils work with the clay on hands. Billy Graham and John Hagee in alliance with the man-made religions within America blind their congregations in not exposing the false Pharaseeism being blamed on the state of Israel sat up in 1948. Rest assured, Mohammedism recruits membership in loosening themselves from pulpit agony.
This elongated stretch of amagination falls into the lap of social fraudulence, when coming into contact whin a pseudo-Pharasee attempts to question the integrity of Christ by proclaiming that (he) the imposter, bragged about being of the seed of Abraham. Christ said: you are not of the seed line of Abraham, for you are of your father the devil. He has killed all the prophets down through the ages, even murdering one prophet between the wall and temple.
Evidently, progressive dementure is a mark of Satanís off-spring. This pharasee along with his fellow travelers have no DNA back through Abraham. In fact, this tribe of people, ( contemporarily ) ,have no ties to civil humanity. They walk and talk with us, but manufatured in the fleash as invisible devils. There is no record in the Holy works, for they are zombie-like in the hands of our national ruling elite. Their blood line is far from ancient Esau of who hates God. This unrully class of devils escaped the great deluge. Satan actually has off-spring on this planet. It would seem imposible that such manufactured filth and grind could have been associated with Mother Eve and Father Adam. This gang of global refergees are geared to make war on Adamís children. The democratic and republican party
is a means to bring degenerates into public office used as blinds in controlling mobs. The evolving cancer of pseudo-Pharaseeism has established its perminent residence in Washingtonís District of Columbia, in alliance with the City of London. From hence the world is ruled. Satanís gang with no DNA--unidentified.
