Former Minnesota governor, one-time pro wrestler, Navy Special Operations veteran and actor Jesse Ventura joins the podcast to talk about his new book “DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans: No More Gangs in Government”. The drug wars, Nazis, fluoride, 9/11, the possible one world government of the future and much more is discussed along the way.
As humans living in the modern technological world, we are awash in information. It would seem impossible to consciously be aware of all the information we are absorbing in a given hour, much less a week, month, or year. However, our brains absorb it all, sifting through the blitz of stimuli within an instant, creating a waking, continuous perception of reality. The depth of how this information affects us, therefore, remains even further buried in the non-conscious mind. So, on the conscious level, most of us try to select sources of information that we find to be the most reliable.
So, where do you get your information? I suppose most of us have put some measure of thought into this. We think about what websites we visit, what television shows we watch, what books we read (if we still read them)and what politicians we trust more than others to tell us the truth that only they might know.… Read the rest
In the Season Finale of Season Three of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Jesse and the crew investigate “a sinister plot that’s spreading across the country, and will soon target you”- the “Brain Invaders” Conspiracy.
Whether fueled by paranoia or fact (or both), government-run mind control is one of the most popular topics in conspiracy theory culture today. Alex Jones, David Icke, and many other conspiracy theory figures often talk about the severe mind control techniques already in place, being run by the government, and advancing in efficacy as quickly as the technology that makes them possible. The backbone of many a conspiracy argument is that we don’t live in reality anymore, we live in a “matrix,” a fabricated reality, and that in order to truly understand the world you need to understand the methods by which your perception of it is shaped. The mainstream media and its technological tools (internet/social media, TV, movies, etc.), themselves, are often accused of being at the heart of an effort by government and industry to manipulate and control the minds of their citizens/workers/consumers.… Read the rest
In Episode #6 of Season Three of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Jesse and his investigative team tackle what the narrator calls “the wildest conspiracy yet: a plot to create bizarre creatures that will take over the world- one part animal, and one part person…. a new breed that can rise up and kill us all… the plot that could end the human race.” This week Jesse’s “unleashed” on the “Manimal Conspiracy.”
Conspiracies regarding the genetic modification of different animal species, and possible inter-breeding of animals with humans, have circulated throughout the mainstream media and conspiracy underground for years. Many of these theories have been inspired by works of science fiction, from sources such as H.G. Wells’ The Island of Dr. Moreau, which tells the story of an inspired, but mad, scientist who creates sentient beings from animals via vivisection, and the Planet of the Apes movie franchise, which depicts the genetic engineering of apes by humans, leading to an ape revolution unseating human dominance on Earth.… Read the rest
In Episode #5 of Season Three of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Jesse and the crew take on what the narrator refers to as “the most far out conspiracy yet- a cover up of an extraterrestrial invasion”- the so-called “Skinwalker Conspiracy.”
In conspiracy theory culture, multiple theories exist suggesting that, not only do aliens from another world exist and visit us, but that they might be in contact and collaborating with the U.S. government. Some theories even go as far as to suggest that aliens are actually stationed here on Earth, living in secret with the government’s aid and approval.
The so-called “Skinwalker Conspiracy” alleges that such high-level collaboration between our government and alien species from other worlds is a reality. The theory is named after the Skinwalker Ranch, a location in Utah with a history of paranormal phenomena and possible UFO interaction. “Skinwalker” is a term from Native American culture to describe supernatural entities that have the ability to shape-shift, and many believe the origin of their myth is rooted in real-life experiences Native Americans have had with aliens and UFO’s.… Read the rest
The theory states that members of the Elite, or Illuminati, are preparing for a post-apocalyptic world by building secret, underground refuges across the Ozark Mountains region of the United States, which covers parts of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. The more sinister version of this theory has the Illuminati building these underground fortresses in preparation for a worldwide catastrophe that they will initiate, themselves. The voice-over narration describes the Ozarks conspiracy as “a conspiracy to launch worldwide chaos” and part of an Illuminati plan to “take over the world from a post in the American Heartland.”
Conspiracies regarding secret underground bases and fortresses being built and operated by the government, or in some cases, the Illuminati, themselves, have become more popular in the decade-plus since the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York on 9/11/2001.… Read the rest
In Episode #3 of Season Three of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Jesse and his investigative team examine a conspiracy theory torn right from the pages of science fiction literature: the “time travel” conspiracy.
There are various forms of the time travel conspiracy theory, but, in general, the theory contends that the U.S. government has been experimenting with time travel research for decades, and that they may have already successfully developed technologies that circumvent the rules of the space-time continuum.
Jesse begins his investigation by meeting with Alfred Webre (also known as Alfred Labremont Webre), a man Jesse describes as “an Ivy League lawyer, a former white house advisor, a real insider.” According to Webre, the time travel conspiracy is “the deepest darkest state secret that the United States possesses.” Though Jesse seems to have a past with Webre, and treats him with credibility, he seems skeptical that such a conspiracy could exist. “Wait a minute now. Wait, wait, wait, time out… wait. You’re talking to me here like H.G.… Read the rest
In Episode #2 of Season Three of “Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura,” Jesse and the crew investigate another one of the more enduring conspiracy theories of the last 25 years: the so-called “Death Ray” conspiracy.
This theory alleges that the U.S. government, and now possibly other governments around the world, as well, has developed a super weapon that is capable of destruction ranging from individual assassinations to the nearly instantaneous demolition of buildings and cities.
Different theorists trace the origin of this “Death Ray” weapon to different sources, but Jesse and the crew focus in on the theory that ascribes the development of the Death Ray to 1980’s era “Star Wars” research. President Ronald Reagan, at the height of the Cold War, instituted a program called “Star Wars”, which sought to create a weapon defense system capable of intercepting and destroying missile attacks from foreign enemies, such as the former Soviet Union. However, according to conventional history, the program was abandoned due to prohibitive costs and the system was never completed.
Jesse and the crew point to the work of physicist Nikola Tesla as the original source for the scientific discoveries that were later used in the Star Wars program, which then led to the development of Death Ray technology. Tesla, a common figured cited in many technologically-related conspiracy theories, died in 1943 while living in the States, and according to historical documents, after his death the research he left behind was confiscated by the FBI.… Read the rest
