“Israel has a powerful stranglehold on the American government,” controlling members of the House and Senate and involving the U.S. in wars in which it has little or no interest.

Jim Traficant was spot on with what he mentioned about AIPAC and Israel in the following youtube video (see the bold type print near the end of the Associated Press article included below as well) as such validates what former Republican Congressman Paul Findley conveyed in his ‘They Dare to Speak Out’ book and what professors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt conveyed in their bestselling ‘The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy’ book as well!:
Former Congressman James (Jim) Traficant interview by Greta Van Susteren on the Fox (Neocon) News Channel:
Only thing I disagreed with  (see above youtubes) Traficant on is that Israel is no ‘ally’ after its treacherous attack on the USS Liberty!

Look Sean, I’m not suggesting Israel runs Congress – I’m TELLING YOU Israel runs Congress.”


Look what Admiral Thomas Moorer (former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) had to say during an interview!:
“I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to them. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would RISE UP IN ARMS. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.” – Admiral Thomas H. Moorer, US Navy & Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff during interview on 24 August 1983

Traficant: I could have been hurt while in prison

(AP) – 4 hours ago

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — A former Ohio congressman who was freed after seven years in federal prison said he was put in jeopardy behind bars because of his views.

James Traficant spoke in an interview broadcast Thursday night on the Fox News show “On The Record With Greta Van Susteren.”

Traficant said life behind bars was “tough,” and that it wasn’t long before he was in “the hole.” He said he was “put in a position to be hurt” at the federal prison in Allenwood, Pa., because it had many illegal immigrants unhappy with his idea of patrolling the Mexican border with troops.

The nine-term Democrat from Youngstown was released from a medical prison in Rochester, Minn., last week after serving time for racketeering, bribery, obstruction of justice and tax evasion.

Traficant said his days at Allenwood were followed by time at the upstate New York Ray Brook prison, which he refers to as a “medium-high” security prison nicknamed “The Gladiator School.”

“There’s a lot of violence. … Most political figures go to some camps in country clubs. I didn’t,” he said.

The government considers the New York facility medium security; the Allenwood prison has low, medium and high security areas.

The Bureau of Prisons said Traficant was treated like any other inmate, and that prison assignments are based on several factors. There also are a number of reasons why an inmate might be placed in a special housing unit, the bureau said, and privacy polices prevent the release of information on inmates’ disciplinary records.

Traficant said he spent the bulk of his time in Rochester with a “lot of good guys.”

“I understood the dynamics of prison life,” he said. “And now what you have is, they want to keep the prisons open, keep the jobs going. They’re putting 20, 30 years on some of these young people, and it’s out of hand.”

Traficant said he hasn’t decided yet whether he will run again for Congress, and that he forfeited his future. He also said he doesn’t care about anyone did to him or does to him in the future.

“I’m going to say what I think is right, I’m going to do what I think is right,” he said. “And if it offends some people, then so be it. You see, because I’m still, I guess, the same jackass I was.”

At a weekend “welcome home” event for Traficant in suburban Youngstown. the Democrat said the government had to “cheat” to convict him, reiterating his trial defense that the government was out to get him.

In the interview aired Thursday, he said he holds some grudges.

“I want to go at them,” he said “They came to me and said if I said I was guilty, I might even get a pardon. And I told them to shove the pardon up their derriere sideways.”

In the interview, Traficant also denies that he is anti-Semitic and argues that “Israel has a powerful stranglehold on the American government,” controlling members of the House and Senate and involving the U.S. in wars in which it has little or no interest.

He says he predicted another economic depression and people just laughed at him.

“Stevie Wonder could see this coming,” he said. “Stevie Wonder could see America’s troubles now.”


Traficant speaks out against the powers that be on Fox News


Traficant was spot on about the US fighting wars which are in the interest of Israel (and are not in America’s interest) as Dr. Stephen Sniegoski conveys in his ‘The Transparent Cabal’ book as well:

Traficant also conveyed that we get blowback from what we do/support in the Middle East:

US support for Israel’s brutal oppression of the Palestinians PRIMARY MOTIVATION for tragic attacks on the World Trade Center in 1993 and on 9/11 as well (look up ‘Israel as a terrorist’s motivation’ in index of James Bamford’s ‘A Pretext for War’ book & check out the following youtube videosl):
