I have been called
anti-government, anti-Republican, anti-Democrat, anti-Semitic and
bigot—just a few of my labels. My politics are anti-big
government, anti-IRS, anti-foreign lobbies, anti-socialism and
anti-Communism. Truth is, my politics are simply
Any issue, regardless
of the hype or emotions, that is not in the best interest of America, I
oppose. I believe in and support the Constitution and our Bill of
Rights. Any manipulation of our constitutional mandate is a cardinal
sin to me.
I guess I’m old
fashioned—in fact I believe that all those new world order
politicians are so dumb and misdirected that if they fell out of bed,
they’d miss the floor.
I believe this
new world order has bankrupted our great nation. We’re
bankrupt and the Congress is nothing more than a bunch of trustees
presiding over the biggest chapter 11 proceeding in world history.
don’t know about you but I’m fed up, I’ve
had it. I’m sick of gutless politicians who are afraid to do
what’s right; afraid to do what’s
needed—who follow misdirected policies like lemmings, who
have our young men and women engaged in foreign wars of little or no
interest to the U.S.A. These same young brave Americans are now being
shipped back home in body bags. Distraught, grieving parents receive
their bodies while they themselves are losing their jobs and pensions.
America is in grave danger, and no one seems to believe it.
The major reason
for the average American to be so passive and inactive is quite
simple—the mainstream media of the U.S.A. distorts the
truth—withholds the truth—and in many instances is
controlled and influenced by foreign entities. I even question the
loyalties and politics of some of their owners and publishers.
read the mainstream print medium with much skepticism. Quite frankly, I
don’t trust the major newspapers. I do not believe their
propaganda. It should be of no surprise to know of my support for
AMERICAN FREE PRESS, even though I may disagree with the AFP on some
issues. The AFP reports the truth—the unvarnished truth,
regardless of the pressures that are brought to bear against them, and
there are many.
America needs to be
informed—needs to hear and read the whole story, the truth,
the facts and the dynamics of political action that secure and protect
our freedom. Having said that, I encourage you to subscribe to AFP and
read my weekly column. I plan to address the influence and power of
AIPAC and its control over our very lives. The reason to abolish the
Federal Reserve system; the reason to abolish our Communist progressive
income tax; the absolute need to repeal the 16th Amendment to the
Constitution; and my proposals to save and create jobs; to stop the
hemorrhaging of our federal debt, to reverse our massive trade deficit
and stop illegal immigration.
I will also address
the issue of John Demjanjuk, who is not being just prosecuted -
Demjanjuk and his family are being persecuted, and no one in Washington
will help. I plan to help him and will testify in Germany about the
crimes in the Justice Department if subpoenaed.
of mine will snicker and laugh. I predict that. I expect that. But,
remember, these are the same nincompoops that have almost destroyed our
You deserve to hear an opposing
view. An American’s view, which happens to be my view. I plan
to deliver these views and information.
I ask of you
to participate in this struggle to reverse the downward spiral of our
great republic. I want you to send me your ideas and suggestions. I
believe that America can be saved and, contrary to the propaganda we
get out of Washington, this is not brain surgery nor rocket science. In
fact, it’s plain old-fashioned common sense, something that
is lacking in our nation’s capital.

co-workers and associates to subscribe to AFP so that our words, ideas
and proposals become known by a growing numbers of American citizens.
for me next week. And please STRAP ON YOUR SEAT BELTS.
James A. (Jim) Traficant, Jr. was
born in Youngstown, Ohio on May 8, 1941. He received B.S. and M.S.
degrees from the University of Pittsburgh where he was a well-known
football star. He also received a M.S. degree from Youngstown State
University in 1976. For ten years he served as executive director of
the Mahoning County (Ohio) Drug Program and from 1981-1985 he served as
sheriff of Mahoning County, prior to his election to the U.S. Congress
as a Democrat in 1984. He was re-elected by overwhelming margins every
year up until 2002 when, following his conviction on trumped up
corruption charges he was expelled from the House of Representatives. Despite
his conviction and expulsion and being sent to prison for a
seven year term Traficant still won 15% of the vote running
for re-election to the House in the 2002 election as an independent. He
recently completed a seven year prison sentence, having refused to seek
a pardon or clemency, refusing to admit to or apologize for crimes he
did not commit. This is his first column for AMERICAN FREE PRESS.
