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.

UNFORGETTABLE

RELIGIOUS BANDITRY AND PSEUDO DEMOCRACIES
The West and the East has created a great divide of various political infatuations, as fronts for trade and subversive activities and, of which, both sides of two oceans clash, as to whether democracy should mop up and unite Third World nations under an alien political doctrine, democracy, that has no merits into the social nor religious regimentation that reaches back into ancient civilizations in the past.What we have today would have driven Machiavelli out of his mind. NATO is the bridesmaid that has suffered a premature miscarriage through its illegal alliance with bought and paid for allied dictatorial setups to invade the Ukraine. President Putin of Russia pulled a fast one via entering the Crimea. One must watch the chess board of Eastern Europe since Putin might come up with an abortion.
George Soros, business magnate, harbors a classical option that communism is to slowly reverse its incipient mold in Eastern Europe into the approaching social machinery of capitalism. This professional entrepreneur and philanthropist does not make it clear--raw capitalism or interest capitalism. Soros had George Bush in his side-pocket, in that Bush was a master tool in the hands of a futuristic police state --pro-communist rule of America. Bush was the lousiest bastard of an American president that has ever existed. Soros hated him for Bush, father and son, brought on total political wreckage in dividing West against East. And now, the gang in national office have thought up various names among the Islamic world as Americaís enemies. All-in-all, this melts down to Israel vs the Islamic global movement. Gangsters in the state department like John Kerry push for political demagoguery in line with interest capitalism, thus the national economy is locked into the jaws of federal reserves ties with the Bank of England. The master key to unlock Americaís grip via foreign affairs is to vacate Eastern entanglements and to bring all troops home.
Wall Street illicit investors are in collusion with Israelís President Netanyahu.The only way out for the state of Israel is to run Netanyahu and his gang out of office. Israel is pushed into a corner and its autocratic government must have a third world war to survive. In the hands of commie infested NATO bankers fell in line to become imperialistic, but Putrin stalled off this illegal instrument awaiting in the wings in the shadow of incipient Bolshevism. John Kerry and George Soros have the same idealistic illusion that liberalism is to replace pseudo democracy. We cannot have peace and prosperity within America when it is realised that such social reconstructing comes from the Near East. Things melt down to two basic avenues of basic intelligence--religion and geopolitics. Was soros thinking of the past as I.V. Lenin, Leon Trotsky, and Joseph Stalin? This man is a master of intellectual quantity with a strange philosophy in that Iíve got mine--you go get yours. Liberalism is Karl Marxís basic idealism to uproot both raw and interest capitalism. George Soros is an in-between meddler gifted with Platonic insight. Putin has an international arrest warrant on Soros. He has found a fly in the refurbished Christian Russia. Hungary has denounced the controlling banksters along with the Petro dollar. Soros is a billionaire. Does he hold petro dollars or gold bars. Our U.S. Treasury has failed to return gold to several foreign governments. There must be a reason.
Obviously, Illicit investors through global exchanges, reserves, are closing shop. The Petrodollar is worthless. Money suppliers such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have been robbing and stealing from foreign nations. They loan out money that has no backing with gold or collateral. Many CEOS are committing suicide. The upshot of it all is to discontinue bribing Saudi Arabia caliphates and back off from controlling oil prices. Let Opec have its way and the market will adjust itself. If Soros rejects democracy in any manner, then our commie-run state should quit making enemies within the foreign Islam and Mohammed states. Netanyahu is the noise-maker for a WW in the interest of global Zionism. Brings disunity to state of Israel. Attempting to dissociate Netanyahu from Zionism is like attempting separate Jesuitism from the Vatican. To loosen the grip of congressional ties to universal socialism is like separating a buzzard from a dead carcass. It all tallies up to religion and geopolitics. Our republic is doomed in not recognizing the enemy within. Bolshevism is a deadly disease and the major threat seated down within our national institution,

HORSE FEATHERS

POLITICAL HORSE FEATHERS
In fact, why not the psychotic Primeminister of Israel, Netenyahu. NATO is Netenyahuís (Mary had a little lamb ), for everywhere NATO goes, an apparition of a two-legged scoundrel falls in line, as a political dirtbag in the mockery of human justice, and a counterfeit god statured upon global greed and intellectual perversity. The state of Israel hates this polarised ingrate.

Pontificating through an accepted ( Mary had a little lamb ) and, every where Nato went this primeminister had to go. this inhibited zombie disregarded Maryís uninhibited desire in warninng this mouthpeice, Netenyahu, to get out of Dodge. Dreaming of Grazing and home-steading in alien soil becomes a stalking point in politically hawk-eyeing a neighboring soil, Iran. There is no pasture in Iran for a damned fool, parasite, and for little Maryís political compulsions. The Iranians deepseated hatred for roaming sheep-herders, political whores, especially under a fradulent Israelite, accurates clearly that a master and little Mary are in comparison to a self-made psychopatlogical lier. Mary was an an bipolar configuration humbugging geopolitical political apparition within and political whoreís mind. Indeed, an imaginary mind-bending rape artist. Yes, in the image of any master who tracked behind.

Our commie- ruled administration while wallowing in a Babylonian state of affairs, has put its foot smack into the craw of a master killer, Netenyahu, in allowing Iran to breathe a few more months as a free-society, not under the control of pro-Israelís post pans to gobble up an alien nationís own way of disregarding the Arabian Opec dollar and the deification of the unknown New World Order, in harboring some so-called devine intuition that Mohammedism is a spiritual threat. Israel is on its last leg to survive if the Rothschild banking industries are shut down. No one knows what President Putin of Russia is planning. Putin has Catholocism in his pocket, while the West is held in check through Prostantism. And Israel, through the priministerís gang, still follows the path of mary and her little lamb right into a brier patch, of which East and West is led astray by global banking industries. Netenyahu is a blind-fox with no place to go but, his waylaid political brier patch. An invisible wise-old owl is perched in the hemesphere of global ;political prostitution and, hell and high water cannot break beezlebub and his family of devils from controlling whore-masters on both sides of this globe. Iran is not a loose-cannon. NATO and its illegal gang of allied bribed- bastards are stalled. The true colors off the United Nations are discovered. This machine is a Communist front. Netenyahu is riding a dark-horse. His days are numbered.

Israelís pro-New World World Order, internationalism, threatens spiritual indignation, in harboring some so-called devine intuition, that Mohammedism is a spiritual rival. Israel is on its last leg to survive of Zionist intrusion lf the Rothschild banking industries are shut down. No one knows what President Putin of Russia is planning. Putin has Catholocism in his vest pocket, while the West is held in check through Prostantism. And Israel, through the priministerís gang, still follows the path of mary and her little lamb right into a brier patch of which East and West is led astray by global banking industries. Netenyahu is a blind-fox with no place to go but, his waylaid political brier patch. An invisible wise-old owl is perched in the hemesphere of global ;political prostitution and, hell and high water cannot break beezlebub and his family of devils from controlling whore-masters on both sides of this globe. Iran is not a loose-cannon. NATO and its illegal gang of allied bribed- bastards are stalled. The true colors off the United Nations are discovered. This machine is a Communist front. Netenyahu is riding a dark-horse. His days are numbered. He and his gang has demanded a third WW. Itís time to bring his illusionary Mary back home.
