As Paul Craig Roberts's closes in his most recent article: "Washington's Corruption and Mendacity is What Makes America 'Exceptional'"

"A government that relies on propaganda cannot be believed about anything. Americans misinformed by a prostitute media are in no position to protect the US Constitution and their liberty. Misinformed, they become tyranny's allies and their own worst enemy."

In the past, Jim Traficant has submitted that he thinks that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, and that it has a great court system. We are wondering if those are still his views.

PCR has written and said a lot of good things, but I call him to task on a few things.

1) He never dares to say the word Zionists, preferring to say "Israel lobby." They call themselves Zionists, and if it's good for them, it's good for me, too.

2) His deep and ongoing association with Alex Jones. He actually told me that I misunderstand AJ when I pointed out a time that AJ deliberately acted childishly in an interview with Roberts to delegitimize his serious and accurate claims about Mitt Romney grovelling to Israel and Netanyahu.

3) He talks about the bar association and law schools being relatively silent in the face of massive and repeated violations of the Constitution, yet he won't tell his audience about actual and specific positive remedies for such violations.

4) He briefly retired because of censorship, yet he won't name who the censors are (Lew Rockwell, for one), and what is specifically being censored, and is still being censored by them.

Thanks to fauxcapitaism for his concerns, which I share, about Roberts' reluctance and misinformation. Many of us also want Jim Traficant to respond to allegations of traitorous behavior, outlined in ACCESS DENIED, re CIA drug trafficking and hideous involvement in its Youngstown Ohio Charm School activities.
