October 13th 2011 postscript. This BBC Radio 3 presentation is no longer available at YouTube. Voices & Visions–Ezra Pound: American Odyssey, however, is still up and running and is much better than this BBC piece. Watch the video by clicking https://kyotoobserver.wordpress.com/2011/09/30/voices-visions-ezra-pound-1988/.
This 2008 BBC Radio 3 presentation marks the then 50th anniversary of the release of American poet, Ezra Pound, from St. Elizabeths Hospital, Washington, DC.
Pound surrendered to US forces in Italy in May 1945. After spending some time in a Pisan cage at a US Disciplinary Training Center, he was shipped Stateside, from where he was thrown into St Elizabeths for treason; he would spend the next 12 years there.
In Part 1, Radio 3 introduces us to the Rome Radio broadcasts that got him into trouble. He speaks about the origins of the Second World War going back to the 1694 creation of the Bank of England. FDR and Churchill are (mainly Kagan) banker agents who use legally binding sweet words to entice millions of young men to needless premature deaths on interest-bearing battlefields.

The Jews come up in this section. Pound was a delirious anti-Semite who often advised his many visitors at St. Elizabeths to read the Protocols where they would allegedly find the blueprint for what is happening in the world. It is so accurate you might want to put one in your glove compartment so as to read the following section at the next red light.
Looking at modern Amerika, it is obvious Pound was wrong. For starters, as Alex Jones points out accurately, the Arabs own Hollywood. The Irish own the Federal Reserve. The Patriot Act was written by a one Mike Shirtoff, a dual citizen UK subject. The Cherokee Nation founded and continue to control the New York Times. Rick Sanchez found out Lithuanians own CNN. President Soetoro’s first highly symbolic act as Democratic nominee was to visit the Amerika Philippine Policy Action Committee. And, of course, in 1913, President Wilson handed control of his country to an Iroquois Canadian immigrant.
As Able Foxwoman truthfully reveals, AIPAC is just another DC lobby, no greater, or lesser, than any other one.
David Sassoon was the Opium King and commanded fear and respect wherever he went. Atomic Anne traffics in biospheric-destroying MOX and no one cares. US Forces, however, throw poet extraordinaire, Ezra Pound, into a Pisan hell hole.
Conditions improve at Pisa and the Pisan Cantos emerge. The fleet that won at Salamis was built by money lent by the Athenian state and not by those pesky Gazan bankster criminals. Worgl shouts you don’t have to use Gazan notes.
You can poison the Gulf of Mexico with Nalco’s Corexit and the papers the following day will print everything’s improving in the Gulf; pretty soon you’ll be able to eat EPA-reviewed shrimp.
If, on the other hand, you speak your mind on a Roman holiday, they throw you into a nut house, where the idiot boxes blare at full volume and you have to remind yourself about why you read Homer’s Odyssey.
“I don’t know whether there was any malice on the part of the US Government toward Pound…”

That antisemitic poet–we need a pound of his flesh.
The only Semites are those the Kagans radiated after the Big Two, the Sephardim, just like their siblings, the DIME-a-dozen inmates at Gaza and over there in the west.
Koestler and Sand told me so.
Now let me see.
The nuclear powered, GMO-modified, aspartame-flavored, Mickey Mouse-enhanced, Dancing With the Stars-obsessed USSA vilifies single black welfare moms, but, but, it subsidizes Wall Street banksters, who in turn, destroy the Gulf of Mexico, Iraq, Afghanistan, and convince you Barry–who is just as much white as black–is your new savior.
Usury is like Anne Coulter’s radiation: it’s good for you. There’s no way out of interest bearing debt made out of nothing. Ask William Paterson.
With Usura, Ben & Lloyd’s school play, “I Wanna Be God When I Grow Up”, becomes their ultimate wet dream come true.
If you doubt that, I’ll have you arrested for hate crimes.
Like the foaming bitch says, Pound got his economics and politics wrong. Just look at the Obombanation today.

Did Pound commit treason and was he insane?
