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.

Putin proclaims orthodoxism in spiritual comprehension, while allying with China. Of course, Confucianism is a bedrock of intellectual astuteness threading back to Gautama. The background global elite is stacking its deck with the probable assertion that Obama is a useful Moselem plant. All in all, we have the Russian bear, the Chinese dragon, Obamaís eagle. and the EU Golan monster in between. One great power along with the Crimean situation being embattled with the IMF. Putin stares straight ahead and does not know what end is up. Putin needs to employ a Hindu viper handler to set down with he and his fellow colleagues to keep the Rothschilds at bay. The odds are against Russian bombers flying the Alaska seaboard within a fifty mile distance off shore. It appears that the Pentagon is being taughted.

Two global giants are nearing a showdown. Two monumental goliaths subtly subdued, being caught in the clutches of a one-eyed cyclops as a political correlation consisting of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. This universal financial machine has been hammered-down, re-reorganized, as one mismanaged money-funding financial crisis. Americaís wedge through loans has brought the Crimean affair as the major force that has backfired in using the state department as a springboard into the foreign affairs with Moscow.

Little doubt, as Putin, a former KGB agent, can no way disarm the global ruling elite rulers that Satan is the headmaster. The gang of bastards within the District of Columbia is an independant nest of globe mastering. This conglomeration of monetary swindlers pay no taxes. This machine has no ties to Washington. This set-up has private police officers. Their better-half is the City of Gold as London. London is their private center of global monetary manipulation. It has no ties to the British empire. This organization pays no taxes and has a private police force. We see that Satan heads such of an apparatus, invisible and devilish intent.

Putin clearly makes it clear, that his government is a state orthodox spirituality.
In essence, the Vatican is a state with no attachment to Italy. It pays no taxes and has a police force and jails. It is one square mile with approximately one thousand residents. Putin has openly denounced Israel. Here, we discover that netanyahu is an elite well-managed tool and hands-down that Putin has averted a third-world war. Israelís only way out via world opinion is to bring on war somewhere in the middle east, in perpetuating the ever destabilization of Syria,

Iran, and Iraq. The superstructure of three distinct global ruling elites in the hands of invisible financial moguls fulfills in holy writ, that America with its Babylonian bastardness, and its NATO confederacy, and with a ruling eliteís confidence within congress, has been stalled off, because Near East foreign Relations and the state department have bought and paid for political failures.
Putin wants to save Russia from imperialism. But he needs to take off his blinders. Oil is the chief means in retribution towards any country that does not fall into line with policies of political indoctrination geared towards a NWO. Opec
keeps the oil issue afloat, in order to increase the fiat dollars as a world currency.
The Arabian petro dollar on oil has the US military on stand-by. The Obama administration and Moscow are just spin-offs in covering for the emerging of Zionism. Bolshevism has been a menace to past civilizations and is here to stay.
Our American republic has been overthrown. A pseudo-democracy is the work of dirty bastards within false religions and bribed weaklings of whom parasite off the state. Vladimir Putin has created a viperís nest along with his league of breakaways from the Rothschild financial industry, that has blood lineage back to ancient Babylon.

No where in holy writ is it recorded that Christ said any good thing toward his enemies. If so, this would have confused his followers. Our Lord was straight forward in denouncing his social/political opponents as swine, dogs, devils, serpents and Satanís gang. He never asked his opposition, specifically the pharisees, for nothing, branding them as fools in the service of beezlebub and his family of devils.
Christ never spoke out of his mouth with a twisted tongue. Our Lord knew that a double-minded man was unstable, spiritually, in all his ways. We must digress momentarily, in noticing that both houses of congress fits this observation. Satan has a middle-path ile between both sides of congress leading straight to the speakerís podium. I know it is disgusting to even associate this double-minded monsters of devils in the flesh with decent mankind, but i had to parallel that Christ was of a singular-minded individual out of order with the worldly consideration of souls standing in line to serve Satan and his temping to drag innocent souls straight to hell.
The Jewish Sanhedrin relished in having our Lord nailed to a tree. Our Lord suffered until blood came forth from his body pores. yet, while in excruciating pain he would not ask his enemies for any sort of help. Godís son preferred to do his fatherís will, in opposition to a world filled with evil. Yes, our Lord moaned, I thirst, but he did not want to ask Godís enemies for anything. So animals in the flesh were defeated, for our Savior ignored them in that any help from devils in the flesh that were formerly kicked out from the presence of our creator were null and void, as disembodied spirits here on this earth. Satan tried his best to tempt our Lord on the cross with his powers of darkness, but in agony our Lord humbly nourished, a no thanks !

As an every-day layman with little formal education, i find that Adask law is a God send in sounding off as to society is a composition of numanity caught in a spiritual warógood vs evil. God has given Adask an insiight into a little world, spiritual, that mass humanity is fully unaware of. Iíve been around all walks of civil and political life. This whole sytem is set up on lies and corruption as the legal system is set in place in order to watch over stolen wealth and property from helpless people, of whom live in fear of organized crime, is a mandate in order to labour in the field of civil and legal robbery of the helpless souls depend on God to come to the their aid, when such bastards as mentined rule a nation run by Beezlebub and his family of devils. God bless Adask !
