Not everyone likes poetry and not everyone likes that of any given and specific poet, however praised or famous. But for me, and maybe it is my Irish side, I find Mike Walsh’s poetry thrilling. As I just wrote today to Jack Sen, “‘the great danger today is that the NWO is making us into apathetic zombies. Walsh stirs me up inside and makes me feel more alive; he is, to me, a truly great poet of the people.”
Mike wrote me: I receive many compliments; the nicest one I hear quite often is, ‘I never liked poetry until I read yours’. Poetry, like much else, has been debased. So, people are turned off, even to all forms of European culture. This is precisely what ‘the hidden hand’ wants. The problem is not the taste or perception of people. That remains pure. The problem is the influence wielded by the corrupt.
I penned this earlier about poetry:
Verse was one of the earliest language forms, andÂ for good reason. During the genesis of our race few people could read or write. Troubadours roamed their peopleâ€™s communities. These storytellers, singers and bards carried the news in their heads and delivered the news with their tongues.
If their stories, legends and myths were in the form of poetry, it was very difficult to change the message.
My mother, when in her eighties, could recite verse she had learned over seventy-years earlier. Verse is easier to remember, and stays in its original form when passed on to others by local storytellers.
Poetry is its own art form. A poem can say in a few memorable words more thanÂ an academic can explain in a book. A poem can inspire — where book content may leave the reader unmoved.
Poets, writers, artists, educators, sculptors, intellectuals, are always the first to be rounded up and imprisoned. And that, my friends, is not poetic justice….
We must not raise the hand of peace,
The hand shown free of sword,
The fist thatâ€™s clenched acceptable,
For this we must applaud?
The hand thatâ€™s open, raised and true,
The hand of peace on earth to you,
Is mocked and banned as dirt on shoe;
But we defy our masters.
Oath of the Horatii, by Jacques David
We must not raise the hand of Rome,
Of Saxon, King and Slave,
The Sun Wheel or the Swastika,
For such their lives they gave.
The hand held high toward the sun,
Protected by the sword and gun
But now the wheel of fortuneâ€™s spun,
Now we defy our masters.

…..Achievement: The Language of God
by Michael Walsh
We think of language as the written or spoken word. In fact, there are many ways to communicate without using either. A picture speaks more eloquently than one-thousand words. We use body language to express ourselves better and people also communicate with music. That God uses music to communicate with us is the acceptance of the finest intellects in European history.
Most of Europeâ€™s great musicians believed their pens were guided by a divine spirit. Ludwig van Beethoven was just twelve years old when his virtuosity inspired Christian Neefe to present the talented child to the Elector of Cologne; â€œHe is, I believe, touched with genius.â€
Maximilian Franz smiled. â€œQuite a word to use of one so young. You must not let this go to your head, young man.â€
Ludwig replied in a firm, clear voice: â€œSir. I have a gift that people say comes from God. I believe that to be true.â€
Beethoven, as did Herbert von Karajan and many others, believed Mozart to be chosen by God as a receiver for the purpose of communication. When a little older, Beethoven arrived in Vienna and looked forward to meeting Wolfgang Mozart. â€œMusic, he thought, the highest art, coming directly from God. How many men have such a calling?
Sir Georg Solti was direct: â€œMozart makes you believe in God much more than going to Church because it cannot be by chance that such a phenomenon arrives into this world and then leaves behind such an unbounded number of unparalleled masterpieces.â€
Johann Sebastian Bach believed his music to be the voice of God. Artur Schnabel considered Franz Schubert to be the composer nearest to God. Of Schubert, Beethoven remarked; â€œTruly, the spark of Divine genius resides in this Schubert.â€
Italian classical composer Puccini was another giant whose mind was used as a receiver: â€œGod touched me with his finger and said write for the theatre, mind you, only for the theatre; and Iâ€™ve been faithful to this supreme command.â€
On composing his Messiah, Handel remarked, â€œI did think I did see all Heaven before me and the great God Himself.â€
Richard Wagnerâ€™s music is in a class of its own: â€œI am being used as the instrument for something higher than my own warrants. I am in the hands of the Immortal Genius I serve for the span of my life and his intention that I complete only what I can achieve. An atheistic upbringing is fatal. No atheist has ever created anything of great and lasting value.â€
French composer, Gounod was asked, â€œHow do you think of those lovely melodies?â€ He replied: â€œGod, Madame, sends me down some of his angels and they whisper sweet melodies in my ear.â€
Johannes Brahms; â€œI know several young composers who are atheists. I have read their scores, and I assure you, Joseph, that they are doomed to speedy oblivion, because they are utterly lacking in inspiration. Their works are purely cerebral. No atheist has ever been or ever will be a great composer.â€
Anton Bruckner: â€œGod has chosen me from thousands and given me, of all people, this talent. It is to Him that I must give account. How then would I stand there before Almighty God, if I followed the others and not Him?â€
James Galway: â€œNothing pleases me more than when somebody says to me: â€˜You know, Jimmy. You can hear God in your playing.’â€https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xv1rI1kFvwA
Andres Segovia, the greatest classical guitarist of all time, said of (John) Williams: â€œA Prince of the Guitar has arrived in the musical world. God has laid a finger on his brow thus contributing to the spiritual domain of his race.â€
Herbert von Karajan was clear in his beliefs: â€œI never had any doubts that my talents came from the Creator. My duty to Him is to exploit them to the fullest. You donâ€™t need faith to believe in God, because there are plenty of signs available of His existence. Mozart wrote a symphony as a child. Heredity cannot account for this. There is only one explanation: the Creator chooses people as His instruments to produce some beauty in a world that is all too ugly.â€
The roll-call of legendary Europeans who believe God uses them as receivers of his message is infinite. Many forms of breath-taking European achievement across the ages were inspired, were the radiated message of God. For this reason, Jews, who consider God and Christianity as their mortal enemy constantly work to degrade European achievement. Permitted to do so they contaminate our Maker, His work and degrade His mortal disciples who use art and achievement to radiate His message.
