James Traficant
Guest Occupation: Speaker Author and Radio Host
Guest Biography:

James Anthony Traficant, Jr. (born May 8, 1941) is a former Democratic politician and member of the United States House of Representatives from Ohio. He represented the 17th Congressional District, which centered on his hometown of Youngstown and included parts of three counties in northeast Ohio's Mahoning Valley. He was expelled after being convicted of taking bribes, filing false tax returns, racketeering, and forcing his aides to perform chores at his farm in Ohio and houseboat in Washington, D.C.. He was sentenced to prison and released on September 2, 2009, after serving a seven-year sentence.

Born into a working-class, Catholic family in Youngstown, Ohio, Traficant is the son of Agnes (née Farkas) and James Anthony Traficant Sr,. He is of mostly Italian and Slovak ancestry.  Traficant graduated from Cardinal Mooney High School in 1959 and the University of Pittsburgh in 1963; he was drafted into the NFL in the twentieth round (276th overall) by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1963, and obtained a master's degree from the University of Pittsburgh and another from Youngstown State University.

He was the executive director of the Mahoning County Drug Program from 1971 to 1981, and Sheriff of Mahoning County from 1981 to 1985. While serving as Sheriff, Traficant made national headlines by refusing to execute foreclosure orders on several unemployed homeowners, many of whom had been left unemployed by the recent closures of steel mills. He openly defied a court order and spent three days in jail to protest the proceedings and draw attention to the plight of unemployed homeowners.  This endeared him to the local population, which had long derived its wealth from steel and steel-associated businesses.  In 1983, he was charged with racketeering for accepting bribes.

Traficant, who represented himself in the criminal trial, argued that he accepted the bribes only as part of an undercover investigation into corruption. Traficant was acquitted of the charges, becoming the only person ever to win a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) case while
representing himself.

He was elected as a Democrat to Congress from Ohio's 17th District, defeating Lyle Williams, a three-term Republican incumbent. Despite being outspent seven to one by an incumbent Republican, Mr. Traficant won handily by 18,000 votes. He has been re-elected seven times, in each instance garnering at least 68 percent of the vote. In 1992 he received more than 216,000 votes – the third highest total of any House member.  He was reelected eight times without serious opposition.

In the House, Traficant was known for his flamboyant and eccentric style. He often dressed poorly, with narrow neckties (then out of style), wide-lapelled sportcoats, and an occasional denim suit. He also sported an unkempt pompadour, which he jokingly claimed he cut with a weed whacker (it was revealed, after his conviction, that he wore a toupée). His trademark closing lines while addressing the House were "Beam me up... I yield back the fact..."

His website featured a picture of him swinging a two-by-four with the words "Bangin' away in D.C."  After the Republicans took control of the House in 1995, Traficant tended to vote more often with the Republicans than with his own party. On the issue of abortion, Traficant voted in the position of the National Right to Life Committee 95% of the time in the 105th Congress, and 100% of the time in the 106th and 107th Congresses. However, he voted against all four articles of impeachment against Bill Clinton. After he voted for Republican Dennis Hastert for Speaker of the House in 2001, the Democrats stripped him of his seniority and refused to give him any committee assignments.

Because the Republicans did not assign him to any committees either, Traficant became the first member of the House of Representatives in over a century—outside the top leadership—without any committee assignment.

Traficant championed the unpopular cause of John Demjanjuk, a Ukrainian-born autoworker from Seven Hills, who had been convicted in Israel and sentenced to hang for having been the brutal concentration camp guard Ivan the Terrible For almost a  decade, Traficant (along with Pat Buchanan) insisted that Demjanjuk had been denied a fair trial, and been the victim of mistaken identity; in 1993 the Supreme Court of Israel overturned the conviction, on the basis of doubt. Demjanjuk was later deported to Germany on May 11, 2009, after the United States Supreme Court refused to overturn his deportation order.

Demjanjuk was tried and convicted by a German criminal court of being an accessory to murder, but died before the German Appellate Court could hear his case, thereby voiding the conviction.

While in Congress, Traficant was a supporter of immigration reduction, and a strong opponent of illegal immigration. In the controversy surrounding the defeat of Congressman Bob Dornan (R-CA) by Democrat Loretta Sanchez, Traficant was the only Democratic member of Congress who advocated a new election, due to possible voting in that race by illegal immigrants. Sanchez would later introduce a resolution expelling Traficant from the House.

Traficant's major legislative accomplishment in the House was the adoption of some of his proposals to constrain enforcement activities by the Internal Revenue Service against delinquent taxpayers.

In 2002, Traficant was indicted on federal corruption charges for taking campaign funds for personal use. Again, he opted to represent himself, insisting that the trial was part of a vendetta against him dating to his 1983 trial. After a two-month federal trial, on April 15, 2002, he was convicted of 10 felony counts including bribery, racketeering, and tax evasion. He was sentenced to a federal prison, where he served seven years. Per House rules, he lost his right to vote on legislation pending an investigation by the House Ethics Committee. a jury found Traficant guilty of bribery and other charges.

Eventually, the House Ethics Committee recommended that Traficant be expelled from Congress. On July 24 the House voted to expel him by a 420-1 vote. The sole vote against expulsion was Rep. Gary Condit, who at the time was in the midst of a scandal of his own and had been defeated in his reelection primary. Traficant was the first representative to be expelled since Michael Myers's expulsion in 1980 as a result of the Abscam scandal.

After his expulsion, Traficant ran as an independent candidate for another term in the House while incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institute, Allenwood. He received 28,045 votes, or 15 percent, and became one of only a handful of individuals in the history of the United States to run for a federal office from prison. The election was won by one of his former aides, Tim Ryan.  

Traficant was released from prison on September 2, 2009. On September 6, 2009, 1200 supporters welcomed him home at a banquet with an Elvis Presley impersonator, and a Traficant lookalike contest. "Welcome home Jimbo" was printed on T-shirts.  "I think it's time to tell the FBI and the IRS that this is our country and we're tired -- tired of the pressure, tired of the political targeting, tired of a powerful central government that is crippling America," he said. Traficant signed a limited,  three-month contract to work as a part-time weekend talk radio host for Cleveland news/talk station WTAM in January 2010. His contract permitted him to quit if he chose to run for office.

In November 2, 2009, a column by Traficant was published by American Free Press. He endorsed the views of paper and continued to defend the accused concentration camp guard John Demjanjuk. Michael Collins Piper an AFP writer— who authored Target: Traficant, The Untold Story — previously defended Traficant against his accusers.

In September 2010, Traficant was certified to run for the same seat he held before his expulsion, and said that his platform would be to repeal the 16th Amendment to the United States Constitution. Traficant lost the election to his former aide Tim Ryan, to whom he lost an earlier race in 2002, in which Traficant ran as an independent from his prison cell. Traficant received 30,556 votes, or 16%.

In past years, Mr. Traficant has been profiled by the Washington Post, 60 Minutes, Fox Network Television and CNN in his years of serving his government.  He has appeared on a number of national talk and news shows, including The Donahue Show, NBC’s Meet the Press, CNN’s Crossfire, CNBC’s Equal Time and Pozner/Donahue, Cop Talk, Good Morning America, The Today Show, CBS Morning News, the Jack Anderson Show, NETV’s Paul Weyrich Show, America’s Most Wanted, Unsolved Mysteries and Japanese television.

picture of Shurlene Wallace
Guest Occupation: ufo activists
Guest Biography:

Here is how Shurlene Wallace describes her becoming a believer in UFOs and what interacting with terrestrials might mean for us personally and as a society.

Unlike my sister, I held a passing interest on the subject. Certainly, like most people, I wondered about life on other planets and about other experiences but never thought that it would ever be something I would personally experience. I was busy raising a family and really didn’t concern myself with such thoughts too often.

Occasionally, my sister would share something she had read, but that was the extent of my involvement - until it happened to me. Since my first experience interacting with extraterrestrials, my life has taken on a new facet and I am thrilled to be in a position to share our story. My sister, based on her self-taught expertise on the subject has helped me so much over the years to come to grips with the experiences and to integrate them into my life in a meaningful way.

We both realize we have our perfect roles to play in the continuing, unfolding events of what may well be mankind’s greatest story yet to tell.

Possibly, there are extraterrestrials with whom we humans can interact. But why should we care about that? What impact can these interactions have on our life?  Why shouldn’t we simply say, “They are where they are and we are here?” 

How did the exploration of extraterrestrials become a part of your life?

How has it changed your life? What are you doing at this point that you might not be doing otherwise? Have some people been openly skeptical of what you say about extraterrestrials?

Many people are frightened of aging? How has your interconnection with extraterrestrials changed the manner in which you view the aging process?

What impact might your involvement with extraterrestrials have upon you life in the future?

Guest Occupation: editor, transition coach
Guest Biography:

Here is what Sue Ellen has to say about her experiences as the editor of Law of Attraction Magazine.

In some circles, being a magazine editor and a transformation coach would be a really weird combination. In the past, it even would have seemed weird in my life, considering that I’ve been the editor of all kinds of different magazines over the last 20-some years, from chef-recipe food magazines to automotive enthusiast magazines. 

But then, while still creating food magazines, I was able to combine my years of experience as a magazine editor — and my expertise in launching new publications — with my 20-plus years of study, practice and teaching of personal-growth and transformation material

In 2011, I was able to create my dream publication, a personal-growth title called Law of Attraction Magazine. (Source Interlink Media, the same company that publishes Motor Trend, Automobile, Surfing and Snowboarder magazines, publishes Law of Attraction Magazine.) I fill each issue of this magazine with tools, techniques and insights from experts around the world — as well as Real-Life Success Stories — to uplift, inspire and empower people.

Adam Kokesh
Guest Occupation: Peace Activist
Guest Biography:

In 1999, Kokesh enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. In 2004, he was deployed to Iraq and served in Fallujah. He was a liaison between the U.S. military and Iraqi civilians as a member of the 3rd Civil Affairs Group. He also worked a security checkpoint while in Iraq. Kokesh received the Combat Action Ribbon and the Navy Commendation Medal for his combat in Fallujah.

After his discharge, Kokesh was a member of the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) and on March 19, 2007, he participated in an anti-war protest and was named in a photo caption of that event in the Washington Post. As a result, on March 29, a Marine Major sent him an e-mail to tell him he was being investigated for misconduct by appearing at a political event while wearing his uniform. Kokesh responded, using an expletive in his reply, thereby incurring an additional misconduct charge under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

In May 2007, a hearing was convened to consider changing Kokesh's military discharge from "honorable" to "other than honorable".  The panel recommended Kokesh be given a "general discharge under honorable conditions,"which is a discharge status below "honorable," and above "other than honorable".  Kokesh's appeal of the decision was denied.

The national commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Gary Kurpius supported Kokesh and two others arrested with him at the protest, saying "All they're doing is exercising the same democratic voice we're trying to instill over in Iraq right now." The VFW issued a "blistering statement" with the headline: "VFW to Corps: Don't Stifle Freedom of Speech."

In February 2007, he became an active participant in the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW). On March 19, 2007, to mark the 4th anniversary of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Kokesh and 12 other IVAW members participated in an occupation-like mock patrol of Washington, D.C. Kokesh first came to national attention after he was interviewed on CNN and his photograph appeared in various newspapers, including the front page of the Los Angeles Times at a protest during Alberto Gonzales's testimony to Congress regarding the dismissal of U.S. attorneys. Kokesh, wearing his marine corps Boonie hat, held up a sign counting the number of times Gonzalez said "I don't remember" or "I don't recall" (Kokesh claimed Gonzalez used such phrases 74 times).

Adam has been a valiant anti-war activist, advocate for veteran rights and those afflicted with PTSD, and even ran for Congress in the primary for New Mexico's 3rd congressional district seat.

Adam joins us to speak about his activism and his latest protest in May of this year when he announced an "Open Carry March on Washington" where thousands of marchers bearing arms would cross from Virginia into Washington, D.C. on Independence Day to protest strict gun laws. He described the event as a nonviolent demonstration to be coordinated with DC law enforcement and that marchers should respond "with Satyagraha" and peacefully turn back if met with force, and should be prepared to "submit to arrest without resisting."

On May 18, Kokesh, along with other protesters, was arrested in Philadelphia by U.S. Park Police at the fifth iteration of a marijuana legalization rally known as Smoke Down Prohibition. Kokesh and Philadelphia marijuana advocate N.A. Poe who appeared before a judge who on Monday May 20 and were charged with assaulting a federal officer and resisting arrest. The day before his May 24 release, Kokesh penned a press release calling for a "Final American Revolution" to take place on July 4 in place of the previously planned armed march on Washington D.C. This was to be "A new American revolution" where "the American Revolutionary Army will march on each state capital to demand that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property."

On July 4, Kokesh posted a YouTube video of himself loading a shotgun in Freedom Plaza in the District of Columbia in open defiance of DC law. In the 23-second video shot early that morning and titled "Open Carry March on DC a Success," as the Capitol looms in the distance, Kokesh loads the shotgun while addressing the camera:

"We will not be silent; we will not obey; we will not allow our government to destroy our humanity. We are the final American Revolution. See you next Independence Day."

On July 8, he returned to the scene with a local news crew. Though police indicated they believed he may have used a green screen, Kokesh insisted data from government surveillance cameras in Freedom Plaza would show he was there. "I was here, and I loaded a shotgun on Independence Day, but I didn't kill anybody. I didn't drone any children. I didn't steal any children's future. I didn't sell this country into debt. I didn't do any of the crimes that the man two blocks over at the White House is responsible for," he told the reporter. "I was ready to stand by my word, and I was ready to commit the civil disobedience that I had committed to," he said. "Now that we have a year, now that we're doing something that's much more open-sourced, we're going to be marching again next Independence Day."

On the evening of July 9, a U.S. Park Police SWAT team raided Kokesh's house in a quiet cul-de-sac of Herndon, Virginia, executing a search warrant for the shotgun and raw footage from the July 4 video. With helicopters providing air support, officers knocked then kicked in the door and lobbed a flash grenade in the foyer, filling the house with smoke. Masked police clad in body armor stormed in and handcuffed Kokesh and his housemates, who alleged mistreatment during the raid and the ensuing five-hour search, which allegedly turned up the gun and some forbidden mushrooms. Kokesh was taken to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and charged with two felonies: possession of Schedule I or II drugs; and possession of a gun with Schedule I or II drugs. Kokesh refused to leave his cell to be arraigned and fingerprinted, but was arraigned by a judge in his cell the next day. A statement posted on Kokesh's website read, "We will continue to spread the message of liberty, self-ownership and the non-aggression principle regardless of the government’s relentless attacks on our operation."In a jailhouse interview on July 18 Kokesh denied any connection to the drugs found in the raid, implying they were planted. He claimed that the Park Police have a vendetta against him, and, when asked if he knew that what he did in the July 4 video was illegal, he responded, "It's called civil disobedience."

On July 26, Kokesh posted bail in Virginia and was immediately rearrested by U.S. Park Police for breaking a D.C. law forbidding bearing arms which carries a penalty of up to five years in jail, in connection with his Freedom Plaza video. Magistrate Judge Lori Parker ordered Kokesh to remain in the D.C. jail over the weekend because, she said, he had violated the rules of his release in another case. Specifically, she noted that in June 2013, Kokesh was charged with possession of marijuana after he was arrested on the south side of the White House allegedly smoking a marijuana cigarette. On July 29 D.C. Superior Court Judge Frederick Sullivan, calling the peace activist "a very dangerous man," ordered him to remain in D.C. jail until trial. At a hearing on August 13, D.C. Superior Court Judge Patricia A. Broderick indicated she would consider releasing Mr. Kokesh to a "high intensity supervision program as he awaits trial." Prosecutors continued to object to Mr. Kokesh's release and said they were working on putting together a plea deal, "which is common in such cases." A tentative trial date was set for Oct. 24.[47] On August 28, Judge Patricia A. Broderick ordered that Kokesh remain in jail until his trial, citing his previous bond violations, guns and drugs found in his home, and that he had no verifiable employment.

Kokesh supporters advocated jury nullification in his case, and billboards appeared in strategic locations in Metro stations near the courthouse stating "No victim? No crime." and apprising prospective jurors:

1. You may, and should, vote your conscience.
2. You cannot be forced to obey a "juror's oath."
3. You have the right to "hang" the jury with your vote if you cannot agree with the other jurors!
4. Good jurors nullify bad laws.

Kirsten Tynan of the Fully Informed Jury Association which funded the billboards, while disavowing the billboards were directly aimed at Kokesh's case, said his case was the kind her organization targeted. "It's a victimless trial," she said. District prosecutors have, on a case-by-case basis, asked judges to deem unfit to serve on juries those who confess to having seen or been influenced by the billboards.

On November 6, Kokesh was released from jail after pleading guilty to the July 4 weapons charges and a marijuana possession charge from the June 8 White House protest. His sentencing is scheduled for January 17, 2014.

Watch Adam's DC demonstration against gun control:

ADAM VS THE MAN started as a radio show on KIVA, AM 1550 in Albuquerque after Adam Kokesh’s failed bid to represent New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional district. It ran 9-11pm five nights a week and was largely an intellectual dump for Adam’s long-winded ramblings about the more esoteric aspects of liberty like why traffic lights are the government holding you down, man.

But in order for that to work, Adam had to sell advertising. And Adam hates selling advertising, so he didn’t. But fortunately, right before that show was going to be cancelled anyway because the station owner didn’t think it fit into their notion of “more positive talk radio” (which translates to "non-confrontational”) Adam was contacted by RT America. (yeah, the Russians) It’s a good thing too, because ADAM VS THE MAN also did not fit into the station owner’s idea of “making money.”

So RT America picked up ADAM VS THE MAN as a TV show on national cable for 30 minutes, weeknights. While some were shocked that a state-funded media outlet would hire a libertarian, if you understand RT to be the Russian government poking the American government in the eye, it makes perfect sense and Adam was happy to be a part of that effort. Unfortunately, after four successful months in which the show quickly came to regularly outperform other similar shows on the network, they decided to part ways and Adam decided to strike out on his own.

And that’s what you see here. ADAM VS THE MAN – 3.0. It’s still about challenging authority, sticking it to the man, and giving the millennial generation a voice, just as it always has been. By challenging authority, host Adam Kokesh reveals the reality of government based not on protecting the freedoms of the people, but exploiting them to perpetuate its own power and serve its sponsors. But the show’s not just about politics: it’s about living like a free, dignified human being, living like government doesn’t exist, and loving it. Adam’s experience as a United States Marine, Republican Congressional candidate, and all-around badass activist, make him uniquely qualified to take down the man behind the curtain.

Who is “the man?” The man is anyone who thinks they can tell you how to live your life and impose their will on others by force of government. But maybe the man behind the curtain is the would-be man in all of us. Because really, the message of freedom that this show is based on, is about conquering that desire to rule over others and that willingness to accept rule by force. They are temptations all are subject to, but in order to establish true liberty for humanity, we must condemn all forms of freedom-violating initiation of force against others and embrace the love and respect for our shared humanity of which we are all capable.

Kurt Koontz
Guest Occupation: Sales Executive, Traveler, Bicyclist, Writer, Author
Guest Biography:

Kurt Koontz grew up with a lot of the outdoors in Boise, Idaho. He studied business at the University of Puget Sound, then returned to his hometown to rise through the ranks as a sales executive for Micron Technology. While working, he traveled on business across the U.S. and the world. When he retired at age 36, he took to adventure travel—mostly by bicycle across Europe and in the Western U.S. and Canada.

It wasn’t until 2012 that he began writing about his adventures. That year, he walked the 500-mile El Camino de Santiago, the Spanish pilgrimage route dating from medieval times. This journey, he says, was a very different kind of travel.

On the Camino, he lived moment to moment, not knowing where he would find the next meal or sleep the next night. As he walked the 1,300-year-old route, he heard unforgettable stories from other pilgrims and took a deeper look at his own life stories. Recorded in his journal and e-mails home, they became the foundation for his first book, A Million Steps, due out late this year.

He now lives and writes near family and friends, on a tree-lined creek in Boise.
