Traficant being released from prison

Just in time to discredit the freedom movement. I'm writing from my phone, so I cant link right now, but i think if you google traficante and bankruptcy, he gave a long speech on the house floor regarding the dire straits America is in. Naturally the media labeled him a wacko. This could be an interesting turn of event, but i hope he doesn't dilute or malign the revolution.

I hope he's legit!!

Well, I have never heard his name until today on Fox News, but what James Traficant said got me interested in him! I just spent the last hour and a half watching you tube video's on him and reading bio's about him. I am not completely convinced yet that he didn't take part in bribery or whatever, but from the little that I have read and seen about him, I have a very distinct intuition that he is completely innocent of all charges brought against him. I do seem to feel that it was all a big plot against him (at least I hope so). From what I have seen, he appears to be very trust worthy by his actions, body language, and the fact that he did not give in to the feds even in the face of seven years!! I truly hope that my intuition about him is correct, if it is not; then he got what he deserved!

I checked out Ron Paul's vote on H RES 495 and it said he voted "present" for the resolution. Can someone please tell me what is meant by "present" and why he would vote that instead of something else?

Thanks,
Jared

Jim Traficant was my

Jim Traficant was my congressman in Ohio ! And he did more for our community then any other congressman in our history . But the reason why RP did not vote yes or no is because that would put a target on his back . So he voted present to let them know he was there but was undecided which would keep them off his back ! Traficant got out of prison and the fed swarmed him and they won't leave him alone . But thats not stopping him from speaking his mind he is a good american just like congressman Ron Paul!

The One "no" vote was Gary Condit (D-CA) from my district

You may recall the Chandra Levy Murder that was attributed to Him and essentially ruined his political career. Has was later exonerated as evidence led to someone else comitting the murder. It makes me wonder if he was punished for the lone "no " vote....

It can't be...can it?

Steven La Tourette ( Rep from Ohio )

Was on the local tv stating the well known fact that

Traficant was made an example of, as he served 8 years for keeping $35,000 while Congress & the Senate have many members past & present who have stolen a whole lot more & received no jail sentence, or very little jail time.

This guy LaTourette I know to be a stand up guy , who also voted hell no on the bailouts

He may be a petty crook, but...

He was our crook. He crossed the FBI too. I see they didn't give Alaska's congress-thing any jail time for his taxpayer-sponsored household improvements, or Dodd for his sweeheart deals, or many others that should rot for far greater crimes and misdemeanors.

Traficant's release date is scheduled for September 2, 2009

After his conviction in 2002, he was expelled from the House by a vote of 420-1. Gary Condit voted no. 9 members (including RP) voted present.

James Traficant ; Railroaded out of Congress 1 of 2

James Traficant's remarks to the House before the vote to expel him from Congress.

He was railroaded out of the government because he was too out spoken, especially about the Chinese money donated to the Democratic Party and how Janet Reno would not investigate it.

if you watch part 2

it has a breakdown of the votes at the end of the video.

Best article I found on him

written a very long time ago, in a time when journalism was important:

ecorob's picture

his mind is probably...

in a different "place" right now...

but i admired him then and i admire him now...this man had the courage to stand up to the corruption that resides inside our halls of congress...

he may want to just be "left alone" right now and who could blame him?

i do hope he continues to fight the powers that be, when he is ready, he is an ally for the american people...

I don't get it

Can someone tell me why anyone cares?

Because Traficant is a true

Because Traficant is a true Patriot who got rail-roaded for having the guts to tell the truth on the congressional record so they had to discredit him!

Looks like the

one no vote was Gary Condit:http://usgovinfo.about.com/library/weekly/aa072502a.htm. Nine members voted present. I can't seem to find that list.

Beam him up , he will be a welcome fighter for the cause.

But thank you for posting anyway.

I can only imagine...

the stories and the dirt this guy has on some of our treasonous politicians. I hope he gets to tell them.

i thought i read he was in a

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

Traficant's 2 big "mistakes"

were to challenge the Fed and fractional-reserve fiat money system, and to defend his constituent John Demjanjuk, from the attacks of the Holocaust Industry.

Those were 2 very big "no-no's".
He wound up in prison as an example to others to be frightened away from challenging the NWO.

from his speech

"Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) are unsigned checks written on a closed account. FRNs are an inflatable paper system designed to create debt through inflation (devaluation of currency). when ever there is an increase of the supply of a money substitute in the economy without a corresponding increase in the gold and silver backing, inflation occurs."

hmm, sound familiar?

The issue for me is

Trafficante is somewhat over-the-top, and considered eccentric. The media will eat this up to discredit anything he says. Whether it will help or hurt, is to be determined, but it is something we should keep an eye on.

I remember this guy from

I remember this guy from about 12 years ago or something. I was younger and didn't care about politics, but, this was the first time I had heard a politician tear into members on the House floor. I was very impressed at the time. I'll check the video to see if it is the same one I remember.
