Italian radio offers the microphone to the world famous American poet to broadcast his usual address to the American people on issues relevant to the US constitution and, also as usual, to cite it in contempt of President Roosevelt and American pre-war and wartime policy. Though largely exonerated for these broadcasts after his conviction for treason for being less than treasonous and actually well-meant by two generations of scholars since the war -- nearly all of whom have not actually heard his broadcasts -- it is clear from the actual recorded material that not only were his broadcasts often stark examples of meanspiritedness and bigotry, but also, by the definition of providing aid and comfort to the enemy, treasonous. In this broadcast, the subject is the powers of the American presidency under the laws of the Nation, providing an argument which all boils down to the amazing conclusion that the US had entered into, and was now waging, illegal war brought about by illegal "condominiums with foreign governments" (Britain and China). While this broadcast does not provide an example of some of his awful statements about Jews (which examples will appear on this page in the future), it does provide a very good representation of the intellectual and ideological construct of most of his broadcasts. It is important to draw a strong line of distinction between this American broadcaster of Axis propaganda and Iva Toguri ("Tokyo Rose"), who was a broadcaster of another sort entirely.
