Jim Traficant Gives American Free Press Exclusive Interview
By Peter Papaheraklis
Since his release from prison, former Rep. Jim Traficant has been pursued by the national media and has already given five interviews on major networks.
He has been on Fox with Greta Van Susteren and again on The Sean Hannity Show. MSNBC’s Chris Mathews and CNN’s Wolf Blitzer have interviewed him on primetime TV.
Everyone wants to know what his plans are, what’s on his mind and why he was imprisoned on trumped-up charges.
He has been the only voice on national TV telling the truth about the America Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) stranglehold on the government in both foreign and domestic policy.
He criticizes the IRS, the Justice Department and the corrupt media for railroading him. Traficant pulls no punches in speaking out against the useless and immoral wars we are entangled in, the illegal immigration issue, NAFTA, trade deficits and the bankrupting of our economy.
He says we are about to implode as a country unless some drastic changes happen immediately. The problem with the major networks has been that their owners don’t allow him to expound on these issues because it makes them nervous. They want the ratings that his dynamic personality attracts, but they don’t want listeners to hear his message.
They call him a “crook” and an “anti-Semite” in desperate efforts to defame his character. They interrupt him, they delete extensive parts of his interviews, and in general do all they can to stifle and water down his message.
The print media, such as The Washington Post and others, spend more ink talking about his felony charges and his hair than they do about his message.
That is why he has refused to give an interview to a single newspaper across the country, even though his phone has been ringing off the hook with their pleas.
During his 17 years as a congressman, Traficant “always read the old Spotlight” and has “always read AMERICAN FREE PRESS.” He has been one of the few congressmen to speak up on the House floor about the issues that no one else has the “anatomy” to address.
The only newspaper that he has agreed to give an interview to is AMERICAN FREE PRESS. Next week, AFP will be featuring the exclusive interview that the ex-congressman granted us.
For almost an hour and a half, Jim Traficant lays it all on the line for our readers:
• His experience in prison;
• His anger at those who criminally set him up;
• His views on the political scene as he sees it seven years later;
• His criticism of AIPAC and its stranglehold of our foreign policy, and its control of the House and Senate;
• His warnings of Barrack Obama’s financial bankrupting of our country;
• America’s endless wars in the Middle East;
• The danger of the emerging Chinese superpower;
• His plans for the future and much more.
We also hope to have this interview on our website located at www.AmericanFreePress.net as soon as possible.
