    What else would you expect from the man who accused Navy Seal Chris Kyle of being a "racist," and described his work as a sniper as "killing sprees?" The same man who suggested that a Palestinian stabber in Jerusalem was unarmed when shot by police despite footage clearly showing a knife in his hand? Joy Reid had the man in question, Ayman Mohyeldin, formerly of Al Jazeera, now co-host host of the Morning Joe lead-in show, on her MSNBC show today to comment on the Trump administration's proposed Israeli/Palestinian peace plan. Reid was highly skeptical/critical of the plan. When a...

    Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura hinted at a possible White House bid as an independent during an interview over the weekend, while harshly criticizing President Trump.

    Jesse Ventura and the estate of “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle have agreed to dismiss the former Minnesota governor’s defamation case. ... A federal jury in St. Paul awarded Ventura $1.8 million in 2014, but that verdict was overturned on appeal. While Ventura initially said he’d seek a new trial, there were signs in November that a settlement was forthcoming. Court documents filed Friday show the parties agreed to dismiss the case with prejudice, meaning Ventura cannot sue again on the same claim.

    Bradley Cooper caused an online uproar among some Republicans during the Democratic national convention after being spotted by TV cameras listening to speeches last Wednesday evening, when Barack Obama spoke. The apparent reason: he played the highly decorated Navy Seal Chris Kyle in Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper, a major (and rare) Hollywood hit among conservatives. The four-time Oscar nominee (he was nominated for American Sniper) claimed on The Late Late Show on Tuesday night that he had simply attended to hear Obama’s address.

    MINNEAPOLIS – A federal appeals court on Monday threw out $1.8 million in damages awarded to former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, who said he was defamed by the late author Chris Kyle in the bestselling book "American Sniper." The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals also sent a portion of the case -- Ventura's defamation claim -- back to the district court for a new trial, saying Ventura's attorneys made improper remarks and the trial court "clearly abused its discretion in denying a new trial."

    Documents show that slain Navy Seal and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle misrepresented the number of medals he received. Navy documents obtained by an online magazine through an open records request show that Kyle earned one Silver Star and three Bronze Stars with valor. In his best-selling book, Kyle wrote that he had received two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars. A Navy spokeswoman confirmed the validity of the documents and says the armed services branch is investigating the discrepancy. The Intercept first reported the discrepancy and posted the documents. Kyle’s widow, Taya Kyle, didn’t immediately return a phone call...

    Just when all hope seemed to be lost, Jesse Ventura has suggested that he might mount a third party run for the presidency if his favored candidate, Bernie Sanders, does not get the Democratic nomination. Ventura, a one term governor of Minnesota, is famous for being a pro-wrestler and action movie star. He is most familiar to audiences for being the chain gun welding, tobacco chewing mercenary in the 1980s Arnold Schwarzenegger tough guy vs. alien film “Predator.” Contrary to popular belief, Ventura was never a Navy SEAL, but did serve in Vietnam as a member of the U.S. Navy...
