RICHIE ALLEN: You served Georgia with distinction in Congress. We’ve never talked about how all-powerful lobbies acting on behalf of big corporations are in politics in Washington…

CYNTHIA MCKINNY: What was an eye opener for me, during my first campaign, was the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). What I experienced with them was sheer torture. I received a fax from them, it was like a pledge, and I needed to sign my name and send it back to them and they would keep a record that you made this pledge that you were going to support Israel.

When I (put them off,) I was hounded from that moment on…. Whether it was a women’s organization or an environmental organization (whatever). What I learned is that the operatives for the Israeli lobby control women’s organizations, environmental organizations, peace groups, it really doesn’t matter; everything is a fraud. I would say I’d like to get your endorsement from the women’s organization and I would get a call saying: “Did you sign the pledge?”

Of course, I did a lot of researching, and I discovered that Gus Savage, a member of Congress from Chicago, had also been targeted by the Israeli lobby before my arrival and he put his experience on the Congressional Record for the world to see. And what he said is what I discovered. And that is that every aspect of the political process is in some way or other controlled or influenced by people who are affiliated with the pro-Israel lobby. So the name of the organization might be the New Jersey Garden Club, but in actuality, it’s them. So his experience was that his opponent was getting thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars from the New Jersey Garden Club. He found the links… And that’s what happened to me.

Cynthia McKinney: US Lawmakers FORCED to Support Israel!

There is tremendous pressure inside the political process to make sure the voters stay aligned inside either the Democrat or Republican Parties. Why? Because both those parties have been captured by special interests. And those special interests are, quite frankly, the antithesis of the interests of the people.

Therefore, for example, if the people of America care about education, unfortunately there’s a banker that gets in there between the student and the student’s ability to go to school. If we talk about health care, there’s the insurance industry that gets in between the patient and the doctor who is seeking to provide care. So we have all these special interests that have positioned themselves in between and the political decision makers than the people themselves. The process is now more responsive to those special interests than it is to the values and the wishes of the American people.

When I first went to Congress, I did not go there to pay particular attention to any area outside of the black community that I represented that was in need. But what I bumped into at almost every turn were these special interests. And no special interest has more influence than the pro-Israel lobby. Then when I did outreach, for example, to the Muslim community in the United States, I bumped into the pro-Israel lobby, which of course does not want to have to contend with politicized Muslim community which is as large as and is as wealthy as the pro-Israel lobby is in the United States.

So I was assaulted, politically assaulted,by the pro-Israel lobby to such an extent that my father had to ask the question publicly: “What does Stone Mountain, Georgia have to do with Israel?” What I was doing was servicing the needs of my constituents. And I was not allowed to do that because I did not toe the line on US policy for Israel.

Interviewer: What line? Explain that.

McKinney: Well, every candidate for Congress, at that time, was given a pledge to sign. I was new on the scene. The pledge had Jerusalem is the capital city, the military superiority of Israel….

Interviewer: American Congresspeople have to sign this pledge?

McKinney: Yes. If you don’t sign the pledge, you don’t get money. It was almost like water torture for me. I would get a call. And the person on the other end of the phone would say; “I want to do a fund raiser for you.” Then we would get into the planning, I would get really excited because, of course, you have to money in order to run a campaign. And then two or three weeks into the planning, they would say, “Did you sign the pledge?” And I would say; “No, I didn’t sign the pledge.” And my funding would go kaput.

I made it public… Probably nobody had said anything about it…. Then the tactic changed. But this is what is done for 535 members of the United States Congress; 100 Senators, 435 members of the House of Representatives, have to now write a paragraph, which basically says the same thing. And you post it. There are these forums you have to go to at the Synagogues or whatever. And if you don’t perform appropriately then you don’t get money to run your campaign. The problem is that it requires an awful lot of money to run a campaign. And whether it’s a woman’s organization, an environmental organization.

People can read about this on the internet if they are interested. If you go, that is the official United States congress website. And if you put in the name; Gus Savage. Because Gus Savage was a black member of Congress who was targeted by the pro-Israel lobby. And he had the foresight as an incumbent in the House of Representatives to put his experience on the Congressional Record. For the entire existence of the United States Congress now, people will be access his experience.

And what he wrote was that it was the Garden Club of New Jersey that gave his opponent $5000. But it wasn’t really the Garden Club of New Jersey. It was the activists who were associated with AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

(Then the tactic changed.) Redistricting was a tool that was used to target me and to eliminate me from the Congress. The district that I initially represented in Congress was in the “black belt” of Georgia. It was comprised of rural blacks who have not access to equal opportunity at all. The district was challenged in the Supreme Court. With the assistance of the Anti-Defamation League (Jewish lobby), the district was dismantled. The people that challenged my ability to represent the people of that particular district included five white citizens, one of whom had been the white male candidate that I had defeated in the democratic primary, and they were aided and abetted by the Anti-Defamation League.

Because of the public positions I’ve taken supporting the human rights aspirations, the legitimate rights and the aspirations of the Palestinian people, I have a target on my forehead. And that then means that every means that is available to the pro-Israel lobby will be utilized to make sure I do not ever occupy a position of authority.

(The Neocon/Israel “9/11-Conquest of the Middle East and the World agenda” is spelled out in the writings of) Oded Yinnon (the “Yinnon Plan of 1992). It’s also the authors of “A Clean Break” who have written this. And I think it’s incumbent upon us to read what these policy makers have written.

There’s a terrible problem in our Congress. The fact is that there is a lot of money that’s available if one subscribes to a particular point of view. If you make a commitment that you will cast certain votes in a certain way, there’s a lot of money to be had there. You can go to the Congressional Record website and you can find speech that Gus Savage made on the floor of the House. It’s called “Laying Out the Facts” and there, Gus Savage talks about the way in which the power of the pro-Israel lobby is exercised during campaigns so that they always win.

II. Targeting and Destruction of Congressman James Traficant’s career and life: Excerpts of Interview with James Traficant, Jr:



(I got State Department documents that proved that) seventeen people who had been in the Treblinka concentration camp testified that “Ivan the Terrible” (the notorious Treblinka guard) was completely different than John Demjanjuk (the accused man identified as “Ivan the Terrible”). The true Ivan had black hair, was much taller, with a long scar on neck, and was about nine years older than (the accused) Demjanjuk. And all these 17 witnesses knew his name. He was identified as Ivan Grosny, Ivan Marchenko.

(So) I went on the House floor and I said, “Ivan the Terrible” is not John Demjanjuk. It’s Ivan Marchenko, he’s nine years older. Maybe he’s still alive somewhere over in Europe. You have the wrong man over there.

That night, the Justice Department came out with a statement that said: “There were two Ivans.” I mean, these lying bastards. This man’s (Demjanjuk, the patsy) rights were shredded. The Bill of Rights should stand like a monument, a mountain, next to an American citizen. It shouldn’t be set aside and scrapped. And God, here we have a government agency that destroyed the family’s life.

Everybody said, Traficant, “Why did they do it?” It’s very simple. They weren’t making any arrests. And now they had this big arrest. And their funds are going to keep coming. Because the funds were going to be cut from this Office of Special Investigation, this Nazi-hunting group. So all this evidence was sent over to Israel.

(At Demjanjuk’s family’s request, I went to Israel for his trial.) While I’m in Israel, I get this call that Bryant Gumbel wants to interview me on the Today Show. And I said to Gumbel: “If Israel puts this man to death on the strength of the evidence I submitted to their Supreme Court, they’re going to lose $25 billion dollars a year from the American taxpayers.”

He said, “What do you mean, they only get $3 billion dollars.”

I said, “Bryant, ONLY “$3 billion dollars, that’s $5,000 dollars for every man, woman, and child in Israeli. And that’s only one of the thirteen appropriation spending bills. When you look at loans, loans converted to grants, grants, economic assistance, military assistance, trade compacts. I say they (Israel) get an excess of $20 billion every year (from the American taxpayers).”

(The next day, the Israeli Supreme Court released Demjanjuk into my custody…. And I brought him home.)

When we landed in New York, almost at that time, the Sixth Circuit Court of Cincinnatti issued a press release. It said: “A tragic but honest mistake by our government.” None of those criminals in the Justice Dept. were ever even investigated. They were going to let an innocent man die. Suborned perjury. Violated civil rights at the maximum level. But (the press said) “it was an honest mistake.” And the evidence we got came from the Justice Dept. They had that evidence.

They’re (the US government) trying to clean up the historical aspects of what they did and how they suborned perjury, how they destroyed an American. And just threw him aside like a piece of meat. Who’s he? He’s just an autoworker from Cleveland. He’s just some honky from Cleveland.

What has happened to us? I said on the House floor and I say it now:

When does sensitivity be a reason for waiving the Bill of Rights? When has a case become so sensitive that an American’s rights are abrogated?

That, certainly, like my staff had told me: “You meet with his (Demjanjuk’s) family, and you’re gone.

Because I was always very much a targeted individual. I was targeted from day one by Israel because I didn’t accept their money. I told them you keep your money, I’ll keep my vote.”

Interviewer: Alright, they tried to bribe you, right?

Traficant: When I was a candidate, yes.

Interviewer: So how did you get framed and thrown in jail?

Traficant: There were seven people that testified that they bribed me….. All seven of them were guilty of big crimes and all of their crimes were exonerated when they testified by saying they bribed me. Four of them have since recanted. Two of the individuals admitted that they were pressured to lie.

The bottom line is: They moved real fast. What were the real factors involved. Even the legal experts were saying: “How could Traficant be convicted without one piece of physical evidence?
