Jesse Ventura, Host David Pakman invites former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura on his show to discuss issues such as Wikileaks, 9 / 11, Bradley Manning, CSE and atheism.
Former Minnesota Governor, professional wrestler and the current “conspiracy theorist” Jesse Ventura is running around to discuss his new book, 63 documents that the government does not want to read, with multiple sources of news – Piers Morgan and American Morning Good Morning America. Because he has a sense of wild-eyed about the world – not to mention the fact that his tan and bald-meets-party in the back mullet hairstyle does like a mad cowboy – much of what he discussed with journalists sounds thus senseless.
But some parts do not really sound as wacky as the others … For example, the book presents new 63 documents specifically because Ventura and his co-author Dick Russell think a lot of corruption in government dates back to 1963, the year President Kennedy was assassinated. Ventura told CNN’s American Morning:
I think that was the year of a coup has taken place, because on my TV show this year, conspiracy theories, we had a confession to the murder of John F. Kennedy…. He said he has been called “the great event.”
Ventura believes that the CIA was involved. Well, I know I’m going to come off as too much a “conspiracy theorist” here, but I’m totally not shocked or surprised by what Ventura believes. Having done extensive research on the JFK assassination for a debate at school, I’m with Ventura that those who believe that the Warren Commission (which the government has decided happened – a lone gunman, Oswald shot Kennedy from the book depository). I am sure that the murder was a coup, probably on behalf of the military industrial complex. (JFK was going to withdraw from Vietnam, but the war = lots of money to some people at the top.)
He also said that the Bush administration knew about 9 / 11 before it happened. They had intelligence reports 4-6 months in advance, and a note in August 2001 that described the event. Not so crazy, whatever. And it is not the only one who said the White House ignored warnings.
Last but not least, Ventura went on how he would probably not have a shot at the presidency … if he were running as an independent.
Probably not because, as Ralph Nader has said that we live in a dictatorship of the two parties. Nobody else is left in the game.
While his choice of words is tough, I agree. When Ross Perot ran in 1992, which was probably the only time in the 20th century, when a third candidate was even a small chance of entering the White House. But the way the electoral process is currently designed, there’s really no way an independent could win. I do not see what is happening at least.
Well, of course, Ventura looks like a total wackadoodle, but I think it’s more appearance, behavior, and yes, failure to be the most diplomatic person who is actually the more shocking for people. At the very least, I think he speaks his mind and express their opinions on hot topics, ask us to think and talk. And that’s what democracy is supposed to be about after all, right?
