disinfoview: Jesse Ventura on ‘American Conspiracies’

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has a new bestselling book out, American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies that the Government Tells Us. Following my recent interview with June Sarpong, a member of the investigative team for his TV series Conspiracy Theory With Jesse Ventura, Jesse agreed to meet with the disinformation® New York crew at the legendary Russian Tea Room.

I asked Jesse why he’s digging up dirt where other public figures fear to tread, what we should do with the information he’s revealing, who he thinks is really behind the myriad conspiracies in his book — from JFK to 9/11 — and much more. Enjoy the video — we’ll post some extra clips where we talk off the record about everything from surfing to rock & roll … soon!

    With that long white hair and bald spot, Jesse looks like one of the “founding fathers”.

    • ebwolf

      When he quotes Jefferson on dissent and patriotism, and encourages people to question the sound-byte, he sounds like one too.

    • Dr. Frankenfurter

      He looks like Riff Raff, I keep expecting him to start singing the Time Warp.

      • GoodDoktorBad

        Your just a sweet trans-sexual…..

  • tonyviner

    He needs Gorilla Monsoon to provide some sort of balance.

  • dumbsaint

    Great interview. He seems like a genuine guy

  • AD

    Russian Tea Room…where are your drinks?
    Thanks disinfo and Jesse V; keep kicking ass.

  • spacelizard

    Interesting that Jesse doesn't want to talk about reptilians or aliens. Hmmm…

    Jesse should tackle all the lies of the nuclear power industry and the ties to the military-industrial-entertainment complex… He should attend the upcoming Fortune magazine conference which is billing itself as a powwow between the nuclear power is clean and green and the solution to global warming propagandists, and the corporate green global consumerists:

  • thatdeadguy

    Ok so the big bad government has a mind control device in Alaska that also caused the tsunami in Thailand and they also conspired to take down the twin towers plus can see every email and phone call we make BUT they cant keep a 3rd rate hack from exposing their secrets.

    REALLY YOU BELIEVE THAT ?

    • SG

      Sounds like your one of those smartarses wbo follows the Sheeple Leader and can't see trhe forrest for the trees.
      Wait til you contract cancer or some other heinous desease and the powers that be deny you proper care or pain medication..you will change your tune..:(

      • thatdeadguy

        I can see the forest and cut down the trees with my chainsaw. But what does that have to do with anything? Seriously how does anything you said relate to my post?

        Its weak minded conspiracy theorist like yourself that “cant see the forest” cause your to busy looking for the gnomes.

          Ridicule – the ultimate weapon! Not too intellectual, but quite effective at silencing the majority of the people who may have an idea that you do not agree with – and once they shut up, you can pat yourself on the back saying, “what a clever boy I am.”

          You raised a valid issue about 'them' allowing Jesse to reveal the 'conspiracies' but if you can find the time to read Conspiracy Theories by Cass Sunstein and Adrian Vermuele you'll note that efforts to 'silence' folks like Jesse don't yield as favorable a result as infiltration. Not to mention the fact that Jesse isn't breaking ground by discussing any of this openly, it's all been on the web for years. The networks have responded to misnomered 'truthers' with go back to sleep spin programs like 9/11 Science & Conspiracy and 9/11 Conspiracy Theories: Fact ot Fiction giving the appearance of 'facing off' with the truthers without actually debating them as opposed to overt efforts to censor them. The history channel has repeatedly shown CIA Secret Experiments about the agencies legacy of using americans as guinea pigs, you need only visit their site to read the MK Ultra & Artichoke documents for yourself if you doubt any government agency has or ever would harm a U.S. citizen. Bear in mind, neither Barry Seal, Chip Tatum, William Cooper or Cele Castillo were killed right away. Conspiracies much like sterotypes do unfortunately have some basis in fact, I urge you to visit the National Archives. Much of this information is available to us thanks to brave whistleblowers and grieving family members who have sued the government for release of declassified documents. National Security Archives/George Washington University has a long history of court battles and forced released of documents from the CIA, so it's not as though they've given information of their own volition whether it's MK Ultra, Mockingbird or Iran Contra. I don't presume to know what you've read, but clearly there's a gap in your knowledge…especially if you believe our 'protectors' have NEVER conspired against us. Take a sec to google this December 5, 1984 Washington Post headline:”Army Sprayed Bacteria on Unsuspecting Travelers”. You can also find this on microfilm at a university or Federal Depository Library near you. If the CIA didn't think twice about killing Frank Olson…one of their own, it is not logical to 'think' that they have a higher regard for us. I'd be more than happy to meet you at the National Archives in June or July to lay the proof of previous 'conspiracies' in your hands, I'll even pay for your copies.

      A 3rd rate hack? Maybe you should do some research instead of living in denial. You want your little red white and blue comfort blanket don't you Frakenfarter? They don't care who knows now. What are you going to do about it? What can you do about it? Just know that blanket won't hide you when they kick down your door and drag your ass out of “your” home, and throw you and your family into some fucking camp. Germany passed gun control laws stripping the people any means to protect themselves. The year after, they rounded up whoever stood in there way of global domination and killed them. The U.N. is trying to pass a global gun control law that will void our 2nd admendment rights. Get ready! Now!

    REALLY YOU BELIEVE THAT ?

  • Ivan

    I think Jesse should get back on his meds. Or better yet lay of the LSD and check himself into an asylum.

  • JFK

    Poor man is odviously totally insane. I pity his family. I had a crazy uncle like him but we had him put away. Maybe they still have an extra room at the hospital. Jesse you are a laughing stock of America and the internet community. GROW UP. Get an education man and start to use reason and logic.

  • miamigroove

    What an intelligent, true gentleman you are Mr. Ventura. Thank you for your bold stance in trying to seek the truth.

    • David

      Amen!

  • capt obvious

    “legitimate conspiracies”

    good one.

    • Truth hurts Jesse

      Jesse IS the conspiracy. He backed down on EVERY promise he made to get elected Governor of MN. He folded faster than a deck chair in the wind. He is all about “HIM” and “$$$”. Read about it in his book, so the series is simply an advert for more book sales. He had a chance to make changes in MN, he pussyed out! Sold out to the system. Took the money and Ran. What a sell out.

      • David

        That is total bull! Jesse did what he could. He tried.

  • Truth Seeker

    yea..how can you talk about putting together all the pieces of a big jigsaw puzzle and not consider looking into the ONE piece that connects it all together??!! which is the FACT that there IS extraterrestrial life out there and they have BEEN visiting our planet for years and ARE STILL here influencing the elitists who conspire against us!!!

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeease….dont get me wromng, i like his show but when he said that makes me see where hes going with it and I;m nbot going to watch it if hes not going to tap into the whole Alien possibility…

    for now I'll indulge myself in REAL documentaries and Docu-series like Ancient Aliens on HISTORY channell…

    just as an example…

  • James Emery

    YEAH! Yeah he looks a little bit like Ben Franklin!
