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.

These people have suffered in trying to warn the world before and after

WW 11, William Joyce, school teacher in London. Jokingly, his London commie

sympathizers labeled Joyce as Lord Ha Ha. Even though Joyce was not of

British citizenship, he was tried and hanged as such. Mr. joyce was a

united States citizen. Britain lost all of its colonies. She has been,

London, is now being flooded with the trash from four corners of the globe.

Mr. Joyce did not die in vain.

General George Mosely, citizen, lived in London. This man warned Londoners

day after day, the dangers of Bolshevism. He comprehended the brutish

nature of this eastern world anti-social movement, like a slow cancer, that

had moved into a land not known as Russia then. This happened around 200

A.D.—- out of Asia, roaming nomads settled between the Caspian and Black

seas. As Mosley warned, not only England, but America, was in his time,

Mosley’s, then ruled with alien visionaries spreading universal socialism.

Mr. Mosley expired peacefully, but not in vain. Socialism in America took

root from the ground up at the turn of the 18th century. This anti-social

incipient communism’s adapters bedded down within the eastern end of New

York , York’s ghetto community.

Less we forget Ezra pound, this poetical visionary had been our

contemporary world’s most outstanding poet. It had taken him 40 years

to compose his ” Cantos ” No, he did not die in vain .Mr. Pound was an

American citizen. His propaganda was via radio during WW11. He

broadcasted from Italy. Like others, he warned of international financial

engineers bringing on a useless war, that was in nature, an an

advancement arm instigated war for industrial expansion . His premise was

that war was a racket. Pound new that Bolshevism was the very root to

entrench the United states and England within the global spread of

international Bolshevism. He did not die in vain. In 1945 Pound was put

away via the St. Elizabeth’s mental institution in Washington, D.C.

Pro-commie Roosevelt would not give Pound a court hearing. Pound,urged a

trial for treason.A well known lawyer by the name of Klein of Jewish

Extraction, took pound’s case and lain out the fundamentals of basic

communism’s it had taken root in New York, City. Klein was hounded to death

by hundreds of red-cell societies nationwide.

This information accuses our national administration as being

allied with an invisible government of worldwide proportions, and

glove-in-hand with a machine of political prostitution being engaged to bring

down our western society, America, right into the arms of a world order

based upon an ancient political philosophy known as a confederated pseudo

democracy based upon political anarchy.

Eisenhower’s death camps west of the Rhine were hundreds of thousands of christian men, children and women. Encaged by barbed wire in open weather without food or water this son of a bitch made his mark as a mad-man. While he slept with a slut, Faye summersby. This low-down bastard aided in the death of hundreds of white people in Dresden. This was known as fire bombing. This scoundrel was in full dimentia as president and no lady in the White House was safe around him. How in the world did this dog ever had been born. America is now raising a race of yellow-bellied worms instead of men. I detest a coward that will not protect his family. No race of cowards has ever elevated unto a christian civilization. The holocaust bunch can go straight to hell on my part. let the dead sleep.

NATO is a cover for international anti-social poliitical renegades, in the palms of a pseudo-religious occult operating under several global masters harboring shadowy perceptions of a future one-world state. Several Late Political upstarts, presidents, such as Harry Solomon ( know-nothing ) Truman, Teddy ( big-stick ) Roosevelt, and Woodrow ( sycophant ) Wilson. A thin-line of intelletual banditry ran through these posted cowards as reprentitives of our republic. The problem is to what lenghth will any man barter off a soul via political prostutution. America’s two-party philosophy has become fragile. The wiles and ways of national government in committing psychological warfare against true patriotic citizens is far beyond class idiotic consumption, in that pro-communist plants are boring from within in creating what is known as the County/ City, Management System. Yes, past officialdom laid the ground work for the internal privatizing of vast properties, in alliance with various states and alien cooperatives. The very root of this is progressive communism. To maintain this opponent of free capitalism national government must appear to be somew Chat destabalized. The fraudulent concept of in-house terror ( congress ), a masive police-state must be maintained. Conceptionally, we have a gang in office of whom rule in accordance with the Marxian, Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin anti-social engineering. Red Russia under Putin has been destroyed. This machine has found roots within the present frame-work as housed within Washinton, D.C.

Bastards come and go but their gut feeling is supreme in supporting socialism because of spiritual conglemerations and oaths to maintain bloodline relations in reorganizing western civilization upon the Oriental religious functionaries--mainly the Near East. Here the benchmark of America’s NATO moves illegally as a usurper of alien lands. Our republic has been gangsterised through liberalism, of which is the hind-seat incipient socialism. Coupling this political manufacturing back to Teddy Roosevelt up to the present ties in with the late Krushcheve remark that America will be taken without firing a shot. With the late President, Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal operation an alliance was made with recognizing Communist Red Russia. There is a thin line between interest capitalism and stabalized communism. As previously mentioned, the management system is naked enslavement patterened after Karl Marx’s Manefesto. Our republic is a staggering confederated of nations, ( states ), in the hands political idolatry. The Parasiticism of milking the treasury through religious or charitable mooching and foundtions is an affront to a free productive people. Free-loading pocket political racketeers are the rotten bastards encourage mob rule, and this is a ploy planned by the liberalized Reds in national and state governoring positions.


As to Eisenhower, this man was the upmost traitor and dirtiest scoundrel in supporting the communist take over in eastern Europe during WW11. This mad-man was a front for the Bolsheviki movement within national government. We construct monuments for pro-socialist traitors and down-grade great men of whom contributed to our republic. Out of respect we drag up Harry S. Truman. This mad-man depended on Joseph Stalin to Stt enform him ( Harry ) as to what the war was all about. Naturally, it didn’t take long to convert Truman to become a sycophant in hock to Near East affairs. This rougue was surrounded by top Russian spies and begged God for a future commie run United Nations Organization. This machine is to become a World State police

power. It is now backing the illegality of NATO in its global imperialistic crawfish design to gobble up helpless nations into a Satanic desire for internationalism. The unrecognized and invisible source is Zionism. The state of Israel opposes

Zionism on the point that racial ties between zionists and Israelites are questionable. The rub here is that President Netanyahu is a stand-in-between.

Unqustionably, we have a backlogue shreading back to Teddy. The merrit of all is a mysterious ineluctable determinism that drives a wedge between Arabia and Israel. To pro-logue this situation Netanyahu becomes devided as to hisis continue in office. The Sanhedren ( supreme court ) is mum. Not sure of with himself, only a war between Israel and Iran will he retain his position. His input with the state Dept and congress is impressive. President Putin threw a wrench into the Crimean affair and foiled Netanyahu’s political iniquity. What the great powers planned by NATO in 1945 has a bitter end for three-gangsters that fronted for a network of invisible global banksters to further their path into a universal government. The end game in keeping the Jewish state and the Arabian nation through racial intagonation via the oil situation has seen its days. Netanyahu’s Mossad and secret police are experts in cruelty. Thus Israel has a police state. Considering the tomorrow of America is difficult. We have criminals as rulers. Too, a police state backed by HLS, FEMA SWAT, and militarilly armed police forces across America.
