    Kyra Philips takes pot shot at Traficant today in interview, Traficant defends himself.

    The MSM is doing the same to Jim as they've been doing to Ron. The bias and character assassination is so glaringly obvious, CNN should be ashamed.

    Well, you would certainly be a good candidate! : )

    Adam Weishaupt stated: "Whoever does not close his ear to the lamentations of the miserable, nor his heart to gentle pity; whoever is the friend and brother of the unfortunate; whoever has a heart capable of love and friendship, whoever is steadfast in adversity, unwearied in the carrying out of whatever has been once engaged in, undaunted in the overcoming of difficulties; whoever does not mock and despise the weak; whose soul is susceptible of conceiving great designs, desirous of rising superior to all base motives, and of distinguishing itself by deeds of benevolence whoever shuns idleness whoever considers no knowledge as unessential which he may have the opportunity of acquiring, regarding the knowledge of mankind as his chief study; whoever, when truth and virtue are in question, despising the approbation of the multitude, is sufficiently courageous to follow the dictates of his own heart,-such a one is a proper candidate."

    As you know, Thomas Jefferson, a contemporary of Weishaupt and one of my favorite Americans, was very enthusiastic in his appraisal of him, and for the cause of the French Revolution.

    As you know, Thomas Jefferson, a contemporary of Weishaupt and one of my favorite Americans, was very enthusiastic in his appraisal of him, and for the cause of the French Revolution. We hear the term 'Illuminati' used often, but the actual name of Weishaupt's organization was the 'Order of Perfectibilists', a term having to do with the gradual perfection of man in the fashion I have occasionally argued.

    One person I believe has had the greatest influence on Illuminism, and who I AM a disciple of, is Helena Blavatsky ('Madame Blavatsky'-1831-1891). She brought Illuminism to the 'common man', and made Perfectibilist principles accessible to all who care to look at them. She brought this esoteric knowledge out into the light of day, undiluted, difficult concepts were 'hinted at' in her published writings, which she made open allusion to when appropriate, and everything she did, she did openly. There was supposedly an 'esoteric section' of her organization (The Theosophical Society) which was for the organizers and for the deeper students of Theosophy, but beyond that, it was the first and only attempt, other than perhaps the Rosicrucian Order right after it and into modern times, to diffuse this knowledge more publicly.

    I would encourage you to read her two-volume epic 'The Secret Doctrine' (1888-I think I already have encouraged) wherein you will find not only an immense study on the nature of man and the universe, but also, that work alone, save for the accompanying Theosophical literature, is the ONLY one I've found to treat of the bridge between creation and evolution, and to demonstrate exhaustively how the world's religions, including Christianity, teach this when studied allegorically.

    Free Talk Live's a cool show. They actually helped inform my political perspective a good deal, and I've been listening since around late 2007. Oddly enough, they're nationally syndicated and very successful. Still no local affiliate here in my region of the Bible Belt though.

    Have I ever told you that I actually got an invitation to JOIN the Illuminati in the mail a couple of years ago? At the time, I didn't have enough money for a stamp (plus, the letter read more like a scientology pitch or a Multi-Level Marketing Scheme). In hindsight, I kinda wish I had taken them up on it. We could have used a guy on the inside!

    Free Talk Live... hmmm... is that the one with the two dudes and the kinda hawt news chicka who chimes in occasionally? I might be thinking of the wrong show, I'll check it out though!

    No, the erudite guy is not me... but I can neither confirm nor deny (at this time) if I am in fact a member of the Illuminati, LOL! I think the number one reason to believe someone is NOT a member of the Illuminati, is if they claim to be a member of the Illuminati. : )

    Happy Pre-Vernal Equinox, buddy! I don't know about you, but I'm dying for at least one 60 degree-plus day where the sky isn't hazy and sickly gray-yellow with chemtrails.

    Hey, I had a question for you. Have you ever heard of a radio show called Free Talk Live? It's actually hosted by a couple of libertarians (one Voluntaryist and one Minarchist), but there's this extremely erudite guy who calls in from time to time droppin' mad science on everybody, and he's claimed to be a member of the Illuminati on several occasions. I kinda thought it might be you!

    I need to get onto that Ron Paul forum then and help you kick this in the crotch!

    I like a lot of Napolitano's views, actually, about all of'm, but I think he's establishment, and I doubt he's electable. After watching 'Conspiracy Theory' [the 9/11 episode] I am convinced Ventura is either stupid or part of the cover-up... and I don't think he's stupid. I don't know much about Johnson, but it sounds like he did some amazing things for New Mexico... let's keep him on the short list.

    I believe Paul has the balls, they're just buried right now. And I do honestly believe he believes what he is saying. I just worry, without help, he might just be spinning his wheels. To the media, he is a joke, which is sad, because he has a decent following. The media won't let him win. Ron Paul wins almost every debate he's in, and he still 'loses', and he's not pissed off enough over a seven year federal jail sentence to fight back. He fights like a gentleman (to his credit perhaps) and champions people's rights... intelligent people respond to that, but the rest of them won't wake up until they get a swift kick in the crotch, lol.

    Great find, man! I was always curious as to how Ron Paul might have felt about the Traficant case. It looks like he had his suspicions.

    Except for the fact that he has a criminal record, I'd wager that Jim Traficant is probably more electable than most democrats right now. Most people in the circles I run in (ronpaulforums.com for example) love Traficant but have never really considered the prospect of a fushion-ticket when pondering who RP could run with in '12. The most frequently mentioned names I've seen are Gary Johnson, Jesse Ventura, and Andrew Napolitano. But I've already started in on a one-man whisper campaign to build up some buzz for the idea! I just hope enough people in the right places read those forums.

    If at some point you are interested... I've listened this week again to every minute of the Traficant House Ethics Committee trial, wherein he was expelled from Congress. In this particular video, from July 24, 2002, which is immediately succeeding the vote of the Committee finding that he violated House rules, under consideration is the motion of Mr. Steven LaTourette of Ohio, who is pushing for the House to stay their vote to expel until such time (at minimum September that year) as Traficant exhausts his motion for a new trial. The rest of the House demands a vote to expel IMMEDIATELY (and they get it).

    The primary cause for Mr. LaTourette's motion was that two separate jurors from Traficant's Cleveland trial had stepped forward immediately after watching the Traficant hearings on C-SPAN and seeing witnesses testify that they were never allowed to hear, and stated publicly they now believe Traficant is innocent.

    What you might find interesting (and which I CERTAINLY almost said a 'Hallelujah!' over) was that a young Congressman from Texas stepped up to the plate on that day in favor of the motion, and made a pretty convincing case in the short time frame he was allotted, that Traficant was indeed very possibly railroaded.

Mr. Paul's delivery begins at precisely 585 minutes in (yes, this is a long video) and lasts approximately two minutes. I am so impressed by Paul's words on that day that I am seriously giving him more thought, and, maybe I'm dreaming, but this gesture by Paul almost eight years ago has got to at least leave open the door for a Traficant/Paul ticket in 2012... how the hell are we gonna accomplish this? : )

    If the video doesn't appear or you have trouble playing it, it can be viewed at C-SPAN's archives at: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/pr...

    The 'change of venue' Paul refers to at the end is referencing Traficant's trial being moved from Youngstown (which had its own federal district court right there) to Cleveland at the insistence of the prosecutors, despite Traficant's objections.

    Oh! And listen for when Traficant tells a caller who starts talking about auditing the Federal Reserve, "Audit the Fed ain't enough! We gotta abolish the damn thing!"
  • Philo-Publius 2010/01/13 01:07:57
    Philo-Publius
    I'd be for that! Where do we begin?

    I really think that if enough people start talking about a Traficant/Paul ticket (and assuming Paul would do it... Jim? Hell, he's a maniac, he'd run with anyone!) it is conceivable they might team up... talk about the left and right libertarians coming together!

    Traficant could hold Ron Paul's feet to the fire like I do with other libertarians when they insist on staying in the realm of theory, turning that theory into ACTION. And Paul could keep Traficant's unbounded energy in check a little, stay the course on the issues, and be the soft-spoken voice of reason.

    Yeah, the show had a lot of good moments if you know what to listen for. It was a lot of back-slapping and congratulations though, but hey, it was his first show. He'll get better and more focused as the weeks pass... and I am SURE a helluva lot more bombshells are gonna be dropped, so stay tuned!

    Hey, Philo! I just started listening and am already having to pick my jaw off the floor. Traficant came right out of the gate swinging with that Norman Thomas quote. He's a natural for this business!

    I wonder if, with enough pressure, we could get one of the big-time patriot radio networks like Genesis or Republic Broadcasting to carry his show?

    Wake up, sweetheart! Now, don't make me come down there and kick you in the crotch...

    I just wanted to tell ya', my podcast can now be heard on WTAM's website: http://wtam.com/pages/JimTraf... so when you finish up with your fourteen hours of beauty sleep, come on over and take a listen to old Jimbo.

    And don't forget to 'Write in the Crotch', 2012... Traficant/Paul all the way, baby!

    (and ignore my latest bash of Dr. Paul in boomer's question... it 's meant to be taken with a grain of salt like everything I say anyway... if we could just hold that guy's feet to the fire a little more on some issues... I dunno... there might be hope for him yet! ; )

    I think I'm going to add a merchandise section to the libertarian lounge website that would carry just such ridiculously off-the-wall satirical chachkis such as this!
