Jim Traficant Memorial Tribute
On Saturday, November 7, 2015, American Free Press hosted the Jim Traficant Memorial Tribute at the Capitol Skyline Hotel in Washington, D.C. Roughly 50 American patriots and friends of Jim Traficant, the late American congressmen from Ohio who was railroaded out of Congress and into prison by the disgraceful American “judicial” system and Jewish contolled mass media, gathered to honor his legacy.
My good friend Jim Rizoli produced the following Jim Traficant Tribute video which was played during the conference.
Pete Papaherakles, the Outreach Director for American Free Press (you should be subscribing if you don’t already!), organized the Memorial Tribute and also served as Master of Ceremonies. Pete was a good friend of Jim Traficant, and performed brilliantly as Master of Ceremonies. It truly was an incredibly moving and inspirational event.
Leo Glaser, a juror on the Soviet-style show trial which fraudulently convicted Jim Traficant on manufactured “corruption” and “racketeering” charges, described his direct experience with the trial.
Jim Rizoli, a knowledgeable and courageous activist and video producer, addressed the audience. He also produced the opening and closing tribute videos for the conference.
Cyndi Steele, the widow of Edgar Steele, yet another heroic American patriot wrongly convicted by the ruthless ZOG controlling America, also addressed the audience. She had a very powerful and inspirational message commemorating both Jim Traficant and her late husband.
Paul Topete of the patriotic rock band Poker Face addressed the crowd, as did his lovely wife Tara Elizabeth Baptiste. Paul and Tara are the primary organizers of Freedompalooza, an annual festival that takes place over the 4th of July weekend in Pennsylvania. I will be there this year, so start making plans now to come!
AFP’s Art Director Paul Angel presented three separate awards during the Memorial Tribute. I was honored to receive the Free Speech Award from the Foundation to Defend the First Amendment. Merlin Miller and Mark Anderson, a regular reporter for American Free Press, also received awards.
Pete Papaherakles and other speakers also remembered the legacy of Willis Carto, Michael Collins Piper, and Edgar Steele in addition to Jim Traficant. We lost some legendary American patriots and truth-tellers over the course of the past year or so. Their legacy will never be forgotten!
Jim Condit, Jr. gave a concluding speech to commemorate his good friend and fellow patriot Jim Traficant. Jim Condit, Jr. is one of the most interesting and knowledgeable individuals I have met in a long time.
