1920s CE-1958 CE: ANTI-WAR HERO SPENT A DECADE IN PRISON FOR TELLING THE DIRTY AWFUL TRUTH ABOUT THE ROTHSCHILDS CRIME MAFIA — Ezra Pound or Ezra Weston Loomis Pound (1885 CE-1972 CE) was an expatriate American poet and critic, and a major figure in the early modernist poetry movement. His poetry began of Imagism, stressed clarity, precision and economy of language. — Pound worked in London and helped discover and shape the work of contemporaries such as T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Robert Frost and Ernest Hemingway. Pound was angered by the carnage of World War I and lost faith in Great Britain and blamed the war on usury and international Ashkenazi capitalism. He moved to Italy in 1924 CE and expressed support for Germans and Italians oppressed by criminal banksters. During World War II, he made hundreds of radio broadcasts criticizing the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Ashkenazi Banksters. Pound was arrested in 1945 CE by American forces in Italy on charges of treason. He spent months in detention in a U.S. military camp in Pisa, including three weeks in a 6-by-6-foot outdoor steel cage, which he said triggered a mental breakdown, “when the raft broke and the waters went over me”. The following year he was deemed unfit to stand trial, and incarcerated in St. Elizabeths psychiatric hospital in Washington, D.C., for over 12 years. — Pound began work on sections of his famous work The Cantos while in custody in Italy. These parts were published as The Pisan Cantos (1948 CE), for which he was awarded the Bollingen Prize in 1949 CE by the Library of Congress, leading to enormous controversy. Largely due to a campaign by his fellow writers, he was released from St. Elizabeths in 1958 CE and returned to live in Italy until his death. Hemingway wrote: “The best of Pound’s writing—and it is in the Cantos—will last as long as there is any literature.”

1925 CE: ANTI-WAR HERO EZRA POUND FOUGHT AGAINST THE BRITISH ROTHSCHILDS CRIME MOB AND WAS PUT IN POLITICAL PRISON BY THE MOB — Pound came to believe that the cause of World War I was finance “usury”, ROTHSCHILDS CRIME MOB. Although Hemingway advised against it, Pound met Benito Mussolini and during the meeting Pound tried to present Mussolini with a digest of his economic ideas, but Mussolini brushed them aside. Pound said he had “never met anyone who seemed to get my ideas so quickly as the boss”.

1935 CE-1940 CE: ANTI-WAR HERO EZRA POUND FOUGHT AGAINST THE BRITISH ROTHSCHILDS CRIME MOB AND WAS PUT IN POLITICAL PRISON BY THE MOB — Ezra Pound broadcast over Rome Radio (took two years to convince them he was not a double agent) over a hundred 10 minute broadcasts criticizing the United States, Roosevelt, Roosevelt’s family and the Ashkenazis. Pound’s voice had assumed a “rasping, buzzing quality like the sound of a hornet stuck in a jar”, that throughout the “disordered rhetoric of the talks he sustained the notes of chaos, hysteria, and exacerbated outrage”. His broadcasts were monitored by the United States Foreign Broadcast Monitoring Service listening station at Princeton University, and in July 1943 Pound was indicted in absentia for treason. He answered the charge by writing a letter to Attorney General Francis Biddle, defending his right to free speech. He continued to broadcast and write under pseudonyms until April 1945, shortly before his arrest. — In Nov 1945 CE Pound was transferred to the United States and was arraigned in Washington, D.C., on charges of treason. He was held for a time in the hospital’s prison ward—Howard’s Hall, known as the “hell-hole”, a building without windows—in a room with a thick steel door and nine peepholes to allow the psychiatrists to observe him as they tried to agree on a diagnosis. Visitors were admitted for only 15 minutes at a time, while patients wandered around screaming and frothing at the mouth. — Pound’s lawyer, Julien Cornell, whose efforts to have him declared insane are credited with having saved him from life imprisonment, requested his release at a bail hearing in January 1947 CE. The hospital’s superintendent, Winfred Overholser, agreed instead to move him to the more pleasant surroundings of Chestnut Ward, close to Overholser’s private quarters, which is where he spent the next 12 years. Pound was in his element in Chestnut Ward. He was at last provided for, and was allowed to read, write and receive visitors, including Dorothy for several hours a day. He took over a small alcove with wicker chairs just outside his room, and turned it into his private living room, where he entertained his friends and important literary figures. James Laughlin had “Cantos LXXIV–LXXXIV” ready for publication in 1946 CE under the title The Pisan Cantos, and gave Pound an advance copy, but he held back, waiting for an appropriate time to publish. — Pound became friends with Eustace Mullins, an excellent researcher and author of the 1961 biography This Difficult Individual, Ezra Pound. Eustace did incredible amounts of research for Ezra and himself and produced many fact filled books with evidence from the records of the United States Government.

1939 CE: ANTI-WAR HERO EZRA POUND FOUGHT AGAINST THE BRITISH ROTHSCHILDS CRIME MOB AND WAS PUT IN POLITICAL PRISON BY THE MOB — Ezra Pound sailed for New York, believing he could stop America’s involvement in World War II. He traveled to Washington, D.C., where he met senators and congressmen and was offered no encouragement leaving feeling depressed and frustrated. He returned to Italy and began writing for an Italian newspapers about the banksters EVIL wars. After war broke out he began a furious letter-writing campaign to the politicians he had petitioned six months earlier, arguing that the war was the result of an international banking conspiracy and that the United States should keep out of it. In 1942 CE, pound wrote and said on radio the Ashkenazi banksters were allowed into decision-making by FDR and it was rotting America with usury. Pound wrote over a thousand letters a year during the 1930s CE and presented his ideas in hundreds of articles, as well as in The Cantos. His greatest fear was an economic structure dependent on the armaments industry, where the profit motive would govern war and peace. He read George Santayana and The Law of Civilization and Decay by Brooks Adams, finding confirmation of the danger of the capitalist and usurer becoming dominant. He wrote in The Japan Times that “Democracy is now currently defined in Europe as a ‘country run by (Ashkenazis),’” and wrote in British newspaper that the English were a slave race governed since Waterloo by the Rothschilds.

1945 CE-1958 CE: ANTI-WAR HERO EZRA POUND FOUGHT AGAINST THE BRITISH ROTHSCHILDS CRIME MOB AND WAS PUT IN POLITICAL PRISON BY THE MOB — From 1945 through 1958 America’s iconoclastic poet–the flamboyant Ezra Pound, one of the most influential individuals of his generation–was held in a Washington, D.C. mental institution, accused of treason. Pound had merely done what he had always done–spoken his mind. Unfortunately for Pound, however, he had made the error of criticizing the American government in a series of broadcasts from Italy during World War II. For that he was made to pay the price. Was Pound a traitor–or a prophet?

1959 CE: EZRA POUND IS RELEASED FROM POLITICAL PRISON — Shortly after Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954 CE, he told Time magazine that “this would be a good year to release poets”. The poet Archibald MacLeish asked Hemingway in June 1957 CE to write a letter on Pound’s behalf. Hemingway signed a letter of support anyway and pledged $1,500 to be given to Pound when he was released. In an interview for the Paris Review in early 1958 CE, Hemingway said Pound should be released. — Several publications began campaigning for Pound’s release in 1957 CE including Le Figaro, The New Republic, Esquire and The Nation. In 1958 CE he was released by the judge who had committed Pound to St Elizabeths. — Pound returned to Naples in July 1958, where he was photographed giving a fascist salute to the waiting press. — In a 1960 interview given in Rome to Donald Hall for Paris Review, he said: “You—find me—in fragments.” He paced up and down during the three days it took to complete the interview, never finishing a sentence, bursting with energy one minute, then suddenly sagging, and at one point seemed about to collapse. Hall said it was clear that he “doubted the value of everything he had done in his life”. — Shortly before his death in 1972 it was proposed that he be awarded the Emerson-Thoreau Medal of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, but after a storm of protest the academy’s council opposed it by 13 to 9. — Pound had written intensively about economic theory with the ABC of Economics and Jefferson and/or Mussolini, published in the mid-1930s CE right after he was introduced to Mussolini. These were followed by The Guide to Kulchur, covering 2500 years of history, which Tim Redman describes as the “most complete synthesis of Pound’s political and economic thought”.

1978 CE: ANTI-WAR HERO EZRA POUND FOUGHT AGAINST THE BRITISH ROTHSCHILDS CRIME MOB AND WAS PUT IN POLITICAL PRISON BY THE MOB — Of millions of American students only a handful has ever heard or read what Ezra Pound said. This ignorance of Pound’s most controversial political rhetoric is ironic, inasmuch as: “No other American–and only a few individuals throughout the world–has left such a strong mark on so many aspects of the 20th century: from poetry to economics, from theater to philosophy, from politics to pedagogy, from Provencal to Chinese. If Pound was not always totally accepted, at least he was unavoidably there.” — Despite all the furor over Pound’s broadcasts it was not until 1978 CE that a full-length 465-page compendium of transcriptions of the broadcasts was assembled by Prof. Leonard Doob of Yale University in association with Greenwood Press. Published under the title “Ezra Pound Speaking”–Radio Speeches of World War II, the volume provides the reader a comprehensive look at Pound’s philosophy as it was presented by the poet him self in what Robert Walker, who wrote the foreword to the compendium, describes as “that flair for dramatic hyperbole.” — Pound was sure his remarks on radio were not seditious, but were strictly informational and dedicated to traditional principles of Americanism–including the Constitution, in particular. In response to media claims that he was a fascist propagandist, Pound had this to say: “If anyone takes the trouble to record and examine the series of talks I have made over this radio it will be found I have used three sorts of material: historical facts; convictions of experienced men, based on fact; and the fruits of my own experience. The facts . . . mostly antedate the fascist era and cannot be considered as improvisations trumped-up to meet present requirements. Neither can the beliefs of Washington, John Adams, Jefferson, Jackson, Van Buren, and Lincoln be laughed off as mere fascist propaganda. And even my own observations date largely before the opening of the present hostilities. “I defend the particularly American, North American, United States heritage. If anybody can find anything hostile to the Constitution of the U.S.A. in these speeches, it would greatly interest me to know what. It may be bizarre, eccentric, quaint, old-fashioned of me to refer to that document, but I wish more Americans would at least read it. It is not light and easy reading but it contains several points of interest, whereby some of our present officials could, if they but would, profit greatly.” Pound’s immediate concern was the war in Europe–“this war on youth–on a generation” –which he described as the natural result of the “age of the chief war pimps.” He hated the very idea that Americans were being primed for war, and on the very day of Pearl Harbor he denounced the idea that American boys should soon be marching off to war: “I do not want my compatriots from the ages of 20 to 40 to go get slaughtered to keep up the Sassoon and other British Ahkenazis rackets in Singapore and in Shanghai. That is not my idea of American patriotism,” he added. — What was the American tradition? According to Pound: “The determination of our forbears to set up and maintain in the North American continent a government better than any other. The determination to govern ourselves internally, better than any other nation on earth. The idea of Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, to keep out of foreign shindies.” Of FDR’s interventionism, he declared: “To send boys from Omaha to Singapore to die for British monopoly and brutality is not the act of an American patriot.” — According to Pound’s harsh judgment: “The American gangster did not spend his time shooting women and children. He may have been misguided, but in general he spent his time fighting superior forces at considerable risk to himself . . . not in dropping booby traps for unwary infants. I therefore object to the modus in which the American troops obey their high commander. This modus is not in the spirit of Washington” Pound hated war and detected a particular undercurrent in the previous wars of history. Wars, he said, were destructive to nation-states, but profitable for the special interests. Pound said international bankers–Ashkenazi bankers, in particular–were those who were the primary beneficiaries of the profits of from war. He pulled no punches when he declared: Sometime the Anglo-Saxon may awaken to the fact that . . . nations are shoved into wars in order to destroy themselves, to break up their structure, to destroy their social order, to destroy their populations. And no more flaming and flagrant case appears in history than our own American Civil War, said to be an occidental record for size of armies employed and only surpassed by the more recent triumphs of [the Warburg-Rothschilds banking families] the wars of 1914 CE and the present one. — Pound thus traced the history of the current war: “This war did not begin in 1939 CE. The present war dates at least from the founding of the Bank of England at the end of the 17th century, 1694 CE-1698 CE. — According to Pound, Americans had no idea why they were being expected to fight in Britain’s war with Germany: “Even Mr. Churchill hasn’t had the grass to tell the American people why he wants them to die, to save what. He is fighting for the gold standard and monopoly.” — Usury has gnawed into England since the days of Elizabeth. — In the end, Pound suggested, it would be the big money interests who would really win the war–not any particular nation-state — “The nomadic parasites will shift out of London and into Manhattan. — Pound believed one of the major problems of the day–which itself had contributed to war fever–was the manipulation of the press, particularly in the United States: “I naturally mistrust newspaper news from America,” he declared. “I grope in the mass of lies, knowing most of the sources are wholly untrustworthy.” According to Pound: “The United States has been misinformed. The United States has been led down the garden path, and may be down under the daisies. All through shutting out news.” — Michael Collins Piper
