From: ZGram - Where Truth Is Destiny: Now more than ever!
June 5, 2003
Good Morning from the Zundelsite:
Today I talked to Ernst for about half an hour - the first time we
could have an extended conversation since he was transferred from
Thorold. He had heard that CSIS is in the news, apparently having
had foreknowledge of a bomb that blew an Air India airplane apart.
The story is beginning to seep into the American media - which will
be in our favor. Our legal team is expanding, and we are following
all leads. Some of them are promising.
Here is another prisoner about whose fate we should learn more:

Letter From Prison
By Jim Traficant
June 4, 2003
Thank you for thinking of me and my family. Life is hectic and
fast-paced-- and for you to have thought of me, and then to stop and
take time from your precious life to write me-- is an honor. And once
again, I thank you!
Most of the people who write me say they cannot understand why the
government targeted me with such a passion. Every rumor and innuendo
that any political opponent would plant and foster became public and,
before long, developed into an indictment without any physical
evidence-- only the testimony of subjects who were able to avoid jail
by fabricating falsehoods about me. Lies and half-truths became
'facts'; and ultimately became a 10 count indictment. My evidence,
that would have proved they were lying, was not allowed to be
presented -- either before the Congress or the Federal Court!
However, I know why I was targeted: I was not afraid of the
government, and I had learned too much!
The U.S. Dept. of Justice & the John Demanjuk Case
The beginning of all of this was my first trial, in 1983, when I
became the only American in history to defeat the U.S. Department of
Justice in a RICO case-- pro se (representing myself), and me not
being an attorney. They were embarrassed! The straw that broke the
camel's back was when I proved that John Demanjuk was not the
infamous Ivan the Terrible of the Treblinka death camp in Poland. The
government was stunned and in shock. The real Ivan was nine years
older, taller, and had black hair and a scar on his neck; his name
was Ivan Marchenko.
My investigation, in conjunction with John Demanjuk's beautiful family,
proved not only that John was innocent, but also that the Justice Department
knew he was not guilty-- even before they took him to court!
Shame, shame!! They lied to the court-- gave false testimony and presented
false witnesses-- knowing that he would be put to death! Shame!!
The Justice Department then came after me with revenge, and a
passion! I lost my respect and my faith in our government.
Because this case was 'too sensitive,' Congress would not even hold
a hearing on my evidence... Congress, all of them, at the time--
turned their back, worried about reelection!!
The Democrats were in charge
then, and they knew of my investigation in Congress... hoping I
would abandon it! I did not! I sent my findings to the Israeli Supreme
Court-- and they had no choice: They released John Demanjuk!
In fact, they delivered him to me at the airport in Tel Aviv, Israel, and
I personally brought him home, along with his son, his son-in-law,
and Israeli bodyguards!
I am proud of what I did. No one else, in the House or the Senate,
would even talk to the family-- afraid of media power and the
vindictiveness of the Justice Department. But even today, John
Demanjuk is still being persecuted. Shame!
The government agents that destroyed Demanjuk's life should be in
jail! That was just the tip of the iceberg. When people saw what I
had done for the Demanjuk family they came to me with unbelievable
information. The information is so powerful that it is hard to
believe, and the government knew I was getting sensitive information
that could damage the American people's confidence in the government.
People came to me with facts about Waco, Ruby Ridge, Pan Am Flight
103, Jimmy Hoffa, and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
It may all sound far-fetched, but I do know what happened to Hoffa
and J.F.K. The government knows that I know-- and so they had to ruin
my voice by destroying my credibility. I may yet divulge this
information if I can get the proper forum.
As you know, I was the dreaded enemy of the I.R.S. My legislation
in the last I.R.S. Reform Bill changed the Burden of Proof law.
Before that, you had to prove you were innocent in a tax court. The
burden of proof was on the taxpayer. The I.R.S. said you owed... but the
I.R.S. did not have to prove it. Unbelievable!
Now that the I.R.S. has toprove their charges, the following statistics tell
the true story.
Comparing One Year Before the changes to One Year After:
1. Wage Garnishments dropped from 3.1 million to 560,000;
2. Taxpayer Property Liens dropped from 680,000 to 161,000;
3. Foreclosures on individual family-owned homes dropped from 10,063
to 57! That's right: only 57 homes in all 50 states! Fact is, the
I.R.S. was seizing our homes-- over 10,000 every year-- when they had
neither proof nor the right to do so!
Congress allowed the I.R.S. to intimidate us and frighten us. Think about it!
And then maybe you can begin to understand why I love America,
but hate the Government -- and why the Government hates me. The
Justice Department had to get rid of me, but I'll be damned if I would back down!
America is in trouble... not from without, but from within! The
Central Government has become too powerful. Citizens fear the
Government. This is wrong. This is dangerous!
I know the Government covered-up and promulgated LIES
about Waco, Ruby Ridge, Pan Am Flight 103, Hoffa, and J.F.K.
The Government knew I was right when I called
Janet Reno a traitor. Janet Reno sold us out when she refused to
investigate a $10-million payoff to the Democratic Party from a
general in the Red Chinese Army (no less!).
Think about it! And the
Government knew that I had known why Reno was forced to
betray America! I'm proud that I tried to do something about it!
Someday the truth will come out. (I hope China never attacks us!)
Many of you have asked what you can do for me. I appreciate this.
You can help my family:

Thank you for remembering me... for thinking of me... for caring!
