Only once in a decade comes a congressmen that talks so straight he gets tossed in jail. Jim Traficant (D-Ohio) is back and he's pissed. I have to admit I have the biggest grin on my face while putting this story together. I can remember so many times watching his incredible speeches on the floor of the US Congress. He was better than watching Jay Leno of the Tonight Show.
Well after 7 years in prison he's back to even some scores with some of his arch enemies. It almost reminds me of Jimmy Hoffa after he got out. We all know what happened to him, well we have some idea.
We have to thank Greta Van Susteren for interviewing him tonight on Fox where he had a few words about America and where he thinks it's going.
He felt that America was about to implode and the foreign influences that put him jail are now a danger to America. In his very own words " even Stevie Wonder could see this one coming ". I tend to agree.
Yes, the past election was heavily influenced by foreign money. In the old days it was from Israel but now its coming from the Arab countries too. They have learned the hard way that if you don't get into the American election process you end up short on the stick.
I noted a degree of danger in his tone and expression when relating to the President. His comment that President Obama was walking a tip rope balancing the influence of Israel and the Arabs could be difficult.
I agree with him. This is a dangerous part of the world with some very angry people that would stop at nothing to keep the blood feud going. Taking out a US President by either side would not be cricket but who knows whats coming down the trail. Either way he looked pretty damn serious about it.
All in all it was refreshing to hear his straight shooting style and I hope we see more of him in the future.
