|When you have finished examining what is furnished
to you here, you will know why James Traficant was "convicted" and sentenced
to eight years in federal prison. He will never emerge alive because he
knows too much and tried to tell the American people.
He spoke on the House Floor on March 17, 1993,
and I heard part of the speech on C-SPAN. It was interrupted and no reason
was given; C-SPAN went directly to coverage of another event. More than
a year later, I was able to get a copy of the speech he gave and submitted
for the Congressional Record, and my son downloaded it to his hard drive
at the time. I have had hard copies of that for several years, but did
not have it in my computer.
Today, I had a need to give a copy to an acquaintance
and, now that I am "computer literate", I went to Thomas (the Congressional
Computer Program) intending to copy and print it out rather than dig out
my copies. When I read what is in the Congressional Record now, I immediately
knew it was not what Traficant said that day. I dug out my hard copies
and have taken the time to type Traficant's words for you exactly as they
were spoken to a nearly empty chamber.
United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993
Vol. 33, Page H-1302 and H-1303, Resolution of the Budget as it is now
reflected in the official record.
Scroll down to page H-1303 and read the words
of James Traficant Jr. as they now appear in the record, then below read
the way it was *originally* read into the record, and the way it appeared
when I downloaded it in 1994.
Here is what the record reflected in 1994; when
it was changed, I do not know:

Speaker: Representative James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio)
addressing the House:
"Mr. Speaker, we are here now in Chapter 11. Members
of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization
in world history, the U.S. Government.
We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint for
There are some who say it is a coroner's report
that will lead to our demise.
It is an established fact that the United States
Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March
9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt,
being bankrupt and insolvent. HJR 192, 73rd Congress in session June 5,
1933 - Joint Resolution to Suspend the Gold Standard and Abrogate the Gold
Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official
capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments,
and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists
today in name only.
The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are
the International Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank, and
the International Monetary Fund.
All United States Offices, Officials, and Departments
are now operating within a de facto status in name only under the Emergency
With the Constitutional Republican form of Government
now dissolved, the receivers of the Bankruptcy hav adopted a new form of
government for the United States. This new form of government is known
as a Democracy, being an established Socialist/Communist order under a
new governor for America.
This act was instituted and established by transferring
and/or placing the Office of the Secretary of Treasury to that of the Governor
of the International Monetary Fund. Public Law 94-564, page 8, Section
H.R.13955 reads in part:
'The U.S. Secretary of Treasury receives no compensation
for representing the United States.'
Gold and silver were such a powerful money during
the founding of the united states of America that the founding fathers
declared that only gold or silver coins can be 'money' in America. Since
gold and silver coinage were heavy and inconvenient for a lot of transactions,
they were stored in banks and a claim check was issued as a money substitute.
People traded their coupons as money, or 'currency.'
Currency is not money, but a money substitute. Redeemable currency must
promise to pay a dollar equivalent in gold or silver money. Federal Reserve
Notes (FRNs) make no such promises and are not 'money.'
A Federal Reserve Note is a debt obligation of
the federal United States Government, not 'money.' The federal United States
Government and the U.S. Congress were not and have never been authorized
by the Constitution for the united states of America to issue currency
of any kind, but only lawful money - gold and silver coin.
It is essential that we comprehend the distinction
between real money and paper money substitute. One cannot get rich by accumulating
money substitutes, one can only get deeper into debt. We the People no
longer have any 'money.'
Most Americans have not been paid any 'money' for
a very long time, perhaps not in their entire life. Now do you comprehend
why you feel broke? Now do you understand why you are 'bankrupt,' along
with the rest of the country?
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). Whenever 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.
Inflation is an invisible form of taxation that
irresponsible governments inflict on their citizens. The Federal Reserve
Bank who controls the supply and movement of FRNs has everybody fooled.
They have access to an unlimited supply of FRNs, paying only for the printing
costs of what they need. FRNs are nothing more than promissory notes for
U.S. Treasury securities (T-bills) - a promise to pay the debt to the Federal
There is a fundamental difference between 'paying'
and 'discharging' a debt. To pay a debt, you must pay with value or substance
(i.e. gold, silver, barter or a commodity). With FRNs, you can only discharge
a debt. You cannot pay a debt with a debt currency system. You cannot service
a debt with a currency that has no backing in value or substance. No contract
in Common Law is valid unless it involves an exchange of 'good and valuable
Unpayable debt transfers power and control to the
sovereign power structure that has no interest in money, law, equity, or
justice because they have so much wealth already.
Their lust is for power and control.
Since the inception of central banking, they have
controlled the fates of nations.
The Federal Reserve System is based on the Canon
law and the principles of sovereignty protected in the Constitution and
Bill of Rights. In fact, the international bankers used a 'Canon Law Trust'
as their model, adding stock and naming it a 'Joint Stock Trust' in 1873.
The Federal Reserve Act was legislated post facto (to 1870), although post-facto
laws are strictly forbidden by the Constitution (Article I, Section 9,
The Federal Reserve System is a sovereign power
structure separate and distinct from the federal United States government.
The Federal Reserve is a maritime lender, and/or maritime insurance underwriter
to the federal United States operating exclusively under Admiralty/Maritime
law. The lender or underwriter bears the risks, and the Maritime law compelling
specific performance in paying the interest, or premiums, are the same.
Assets of the debtor can also be hypothecated (to
pledge something as a security without taking possession of it) as security
by the lender or underwriter. The Federal Reserve Act stipulated that the
interest on the debt was to be paid in Gold. There was no stipulation in
the Federal Reserve Act for ever paying the principal.
Prior to 1913, most Americans owned clear, allodial
title to property, free and clear of any liens or mortgages until the Federal
Reserve Act (1913) 'hypothecated' all property within the federal United
States to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, in which the Trustees
(stockholders) held legal title. The U.S. citizen (tenant, franchisee)
was registered as a 'beneficiary' of the trust via his/her birth certificate.
In 1933, the federal United States hypothecated
all of the present and future properties, assets, and labor of their 'subjects,'
the 14th Amendment U.S. citizen, to the Federal Reserve System.
In return, the Federal Reserve System agreed to
extend the federal United States corporation all the credit 'money substitute'
it needed. Like any other debtor, the federal United States government
had to assign collateral and security to their creditors as a condition
of the loan.
Since the federal United States didn't have any
assets, they assigned the private property of their 'economic slaves,'
the U.S. citizens as collateral against the unpayable federal debt. They
also pledged the unincorporated federal territories, national park forests,
birth certificates, and non-profit organizations as collateral against
the federal debt.
All has already been transferred as payment to
the international bankers.
Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American
Revolution, feudal roots whereby all land is held by a Sovereign, and the
common people had no rights to hold allodial title to property.
Once again, We the People are the tenants and sharecroppers
renting our own property from a Sovereign in the guise of the Federal Reserve
We the People have exchanged one master for another.
This has been going on for over eighty years without
the 'informed knowledge' of the American people, without a voice protesting
Now it is easy to grasp why America is fundamentally
Why don't more people own their properties outright?
Why are 90% of Americans mortgaged to the hilt
and have little or no assets after all debts and liabilities have been
Why does it feel like you are working harder and
harder and getting less and less?
We are reaping what has been sown, and the results
of our harvest is a painful bankruptcy, and a foreclosure on American property,
precious liberties, and a way of life.
Few of our elected representatives in Washington,
D.C. have dared to tell the truth. The federal United States is bankrupt.
Our children will inherit this unpayable debt, and the tyranny to enforce
America has become completely bankrupt in world
leadership, financial credit, and its reputation for courage, vision, and
This is an undeclared economic war, bankruptcy,
and economic slavery of the most corrupt order.
Wake up, America! Take back your country."
