    Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, who has revealed plans to run as Vice President with Ron Paul in 2012, is making his presence felt with news-making interviews and explosive statements on 9/11 attacks, President Barack Obama and President-hopeful Michele Bachmann. The former governor-turned-conspiracy theorist, who is currently promoting his book '63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read', said that he would run for Vice President if Ron Paul ran as an Independent. On ABC's Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos, Ventura made light the idea of Michele Bachmann, often identified as the "un-Palin", running for President. "You've got...

    ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) — Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura is so upset by the dismissal of his airport security lawsuit that he threatened Friday to apply for dual citizenship so he can spend more time in his beloved Mexico — or run for president of what he labeled "the Fascist States of America." Ventura, also a former wrestling star, sued the U.S. government in January, alleging that airport scans and pat-downs amounted to unreasonable search and seizure.

A district judge threw out his lawsuit Thursday, ruling it should have been filed in a Circuit Court of Appeals. Ventura has...

    Jesse Ventura, announced he will no longer use commercial airlines due to the egregious abuses of the TSA and the government. Ventura said he made the decision to avoid public aircraft after he found himself becoming too comfortable with being routinely searched. He said he was subjected to pat down and search three or four times a week when he traveled for his television show. Ventura had hip surgery and the metal in his body invariably sets off airport metal detectors. Jesse said he will no longer be forced by the TSA to prove he is not a criminal or...

    Jesse Ventura has found two new reasons not to trust the government, and he's telling anybody in the halls of Congress who will listen. The first bit of intrigue involves what he sees as the military's move to undermine his reality truTV series, "Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura," by not letting him film a stand-up in front of the Eternal Flame at the gravesite of John F. Kennedy. The former Minnesota governor also claims the U.S. is fighting in Afghanistan to secretly secure a massive lithium deposit to make the world safe for cell phone, computer and electric car batteries....

    NJNR: What are your thoughts on the Minnesota Independence party backing Mayor Bloomberg for president in 2012? JV: He's a bright man. He's done an outstanding job here in N.Y. to the best of my knowledge. I mean New Yorkers would know better than me. Whenever I come here it seems he's done a great job with the city. If he runs as a true independent he gets my full support because I don't vote for Democrats or Republicans. I refuse to vote for them and I encourage everyone else in this country to do the same. The problem with...

    Political Lore ^ | Sept 5 2008 | Alexander Nobles
    Jesse Ventura stated at Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty rally in St. Paul, Minnesota, that he would run for president in 2012 if he determined that the grassroots made significant political advances in the interim. It is doubtful he would run for the Libertarian party nod, given that his name alone is bigger than the entire Libertarian party. Ventura could run as an Independent, getting onto all 50 state ballots and possibly winning. This is something that I will be following personally. It looks like the grassroots is already starting to generate momentum for a run in 2012.

    Jesse Ventura may or may not have a "judge" show in his future, but one thing's for sure: He's definitely going to be searching for justice. The former governor will host a new program for TruTV (formerly Court TV) in which he'll travel the country, exploring modern-day conspiracies and getting input from believers and skeptics. "I've been a mayor; I've been a governor. Now I get to be a detective and seek the truth," Ventura said in a press statement. The series starts filming in October and is being produced by A. Smith & Co., which is also responsible for...

    Good news for Alex Jones and his fellow 9/11 Truthers. They will finally have a television outlet in which to spew their absurd theories about how "9/11 was an inside job." The reason is that Jesse Ventura has been named as the host of a TruTV mystery show about conspiracy theories. Here is the report from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star-Tribune announcing the show that is sure to light up the tinfoil hats of conspiracists in dark basements all across the land: Jesse Ventura may or may not have a "judge" show in his future, but one thing's for sure: He's...

    Jesse Ventura, when he’s not talking about 9-11, makes a lot of sense. Describing the two party system to Larry King, he said: “[W]hat you have today is like walking into the grocery store and you go to the soft drink department, and there is only Pepsi and Coke. Those are the two you get to choose from. There is no Mountain Dew, no Root Beer, no Orange. They’re both Colas; one is slightly sweeter than the other, depending on which side of the aisle you are on.” ... read more

    "The political climate that is taking shape is unprecedented in its friendliness towards independents. If predictions of most economic experts across the spectrum are correct and the economy is still in a rut a year and a half from now when campaigns for the midterm elections begin in earnest, it might very well be a wrap for the two-party-system that we all know and love."

    Disregarding the imposing presence, talk about tortured logic... I think what's worse is this: The fact that it happened. If we hadn't waterboarded to begin with none of this would be a controversy, would it? Torture is torture. If you're going to be a country that follows the rule of law which we are, torture is illegal. -- Jesse Ventura, The View, 5/18/09 Mr. Ventura seems quite fixed in his opinion, so I'll avoid the ticking nuclear weapon hypothetical and get a little more personal because I think it's all about what his definition of "torture" is.

    Conspiracy theorists awaiting Wednesday night's premiere of "Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura" might take interest in a curious comment Ventura made in the Los Angeles Times this weekend. Ventura, who has been doing the media rounds promoting his new venture on TruTV, told the paper that MSNBC cancelled his show "Jesse Ventura's America" in 2003 because he did not support the Iraq War. He said the network "in essence" paid him to be silent, which allowed him to purchase a house in Mexico. This is not your first venture into TV hosting since leaving the governorship. What happened to "Jesse...

    Jesse Ventura wants to talk. He's on the phone, growling. "You want an exclusive?" The guy hates the press. During his governorship, he famously printed press passes that read, "Media Jackal." Why's he calling now? "My new show on TV," he says. Ventura says he would have given the interview to the Star Tribune, but last time he got the shaft. The paper said he could only fight when he knew the other guy's moves first—a cheap shot at his long ago pro wrestling career. "So I thought I'd talk to you instead," Ventura says. "Give you an exclusive." He...

Ventura will start a tour March 8 to promote his book, "American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies the Government Tells Us." He is currently hosting a TruTV series with a similar theme, called "Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura."
