Craig R Smith
(Radio host and gold trader - Religious)
— A radio jock from the Religious right of the Republican party. —
This Craig R Smith seems to have had no involvement with the tobacco industry at all. He is included here mainly for disambiguation with the other Craig R Smiths.
This Craig Smith is a right-wing talk-show host and self-publisher of book of financial advise which aligns closely with his gold trading business.
He appears to dabble in Republican politics but not to the extent of the Professor Craig R Smith of the Californian State University, Long Beach.
Most of his references carry long and elaborate puff-pieces and many articles attacking the much-despised liberals. These postings are generally little more than standard mouth-frothing right-wing diatribes, supplemented by more than a hint of self-satisfied religiousity. See this Craig Smith's website http://www.craigrsmith.com and articles at http://www.wnd.com/news/.
|Craig R. Smith is Chairman of Swiss America Trading Corporation, a national investment firm specializing in U.S. gold and silver coins. Mr. Smith founded the company in 1982 out of a bedroom in his home with $50.00. It has since grown into one of the largest and most respected firms in the industry known for its dedication to consumer education and safety.|

Mr. Smith's free market economic worldview offers audiences a breath of fresh air amid today's failed 'big government' approach. He believes we need a revival of self-government and free market principles to help rebuild the American economy; unlike the current administration's belief in multi-trillion dollar 'cradle-to-grave' government dependence.
In his WorldNetDaily articles he figures as a first-order "Barack Hussein Obama"-hater and a Clinton-loather (of both kinds ... Bill & Hillary)
This is the quintessential Republican reptile who made Americam politics what it is today.
He is also not above using his columns in WorldNetDaily to promote his gold business.
There is endless opportunity for confusion here.

[It was a gift of the fairies]
2008 Feb 12: Smith's article "Abuse of the presidency" published by the far right WorldNetDaily was in hot defence of President Dubya Bush, and fierce in its attack on Hillary Clinton.
When people in America were claiming Bill Clinton ordered air strikes to deflect the Lewinsky scandal, I was very vocal with my criticism. Pundits were all singing the "Wag the Dog" song. The leaders of the Republican Party were not part of the choir.
One thing I can assure you: You won't see Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney acting like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton or Al Gore. That is for sure. The Bush administration has too much respect for itself and the country for that to happen.
Decorum has been thrown out the window by a power hungry Democratic Party that will sacrifice anything to regain power. Even if the presidency, military and ultimately the country are the offering. It's as if Democrats suffer from Munchausen by Proxy syndrome. If they destroy the presidency, military and the country they will have something to fix once they take up residency at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
He was calling for a constant attack on Democrat Presidents in retaliation for the treatment of Bush. See the complex story which is "unintentionally as funny as hell"

His popular science book in 1979 entitled "The Cooling" explained that in this dawning of a New Ice Age "the cooling has already killed hundreds of thousands of people in poor nations... If it continues, and no strong measures are taken to deal with it, the cooling will cause world famine, world chaos, and probably world war, and this could all come by the year 2000."
