If you do an internet or Google search of "Traficant" and any permutation of "U.S. bankrupt" "Emergency Powers Act" "U.S. dissolved," it will produce a number of links that will lead you to a statement made by Traficant that is allegedly a part of the Congressional Record, March 17, 1993, Vol. 33, page H-1303.
Here is the unverified and alleged Traficant statement that is found on many websites:
Mr. Speaker, we are now here in chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint for our future. 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 STATE 1, PUBLIC LAW 89-719, declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 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 government offices, officers, and departments and is further evidence that the United States Government EXISTS TODAY IN NAME ONLY.
The receivers of 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 operating within a de facto [ILLEGAL] status IN NAME ONLY under Emergency War Powers.
With the Constitutional Republican form of Government NOW DISSOLVED, the receivers of the bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the United States. This new form of government is called a Democracy, being an established socialist/Communist order under a new governor for America.
Note: This act was instituted and established by transferring and/or placing the Office of the Secretary of the 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.”
While I want to believe that Congressman Traficant made this statement on record for future generations to see, I have to verify any information that I can before posting it as fact even if I believe the allegations made in Traficant's alleged statement. Unfortunately in this case, there is just no evidence on the Congressional Record that Traficant made the alleged statement. I looked up the Congressional Record at issue for Traficant's statement, sorting by date (thanks to Cywar) and retrieved the below embedded document. If you review the document I pulled from the Congressional Record and the alleged Traficant statement above, you will see that the statements are not the same. The first paragraph in the alleged statement is the only paragraph that appears in the official Record. Paragraphs 2-5 in the alleged statement do not appear in the official Record embedded below.
Ex-Congressman James Traficant's Statement in the Congressional Record, March 17, 1993, Vol. 33, Page H-1303
1) Traficant made the alleged statement and the Congressional Record has been changed to delete the references about the international bankers in Paragraphs 2-5; OR
2) Traficant never made the alleged statement and the alleged statement above is merely an urban legend!
Does anyone have the CSPAN tape of Traficant from March 17, 1993?
