Jesse Ventura searches for coverups

Ventura in the Los Angeles Times. Although part of the Entertainment Rubric, do not underestimate the impact on mainstream oriented public. Ventura always clearly and concisely formulating his topics. I hope his TV series will have same qualities. This brief interview is worth reading.

Image Description

Jesse Ventura is back. The former pro wrestler, who served as Minnesota governor from 1999 to 2003, is the host of "Conspiracy Theory," an investigative series that premieres Wednesday on truTV.

On "Conspiracy Theory," you investigate secret societies and supposed government coverups. Such theories are everywhere, but really, what big conspiracy has ever been proven?

How can you prove it? That's the point. The better part would be to ask, "How many of the government's points have ever been proven?" I find what's most interesting about doing this show is how the government will not participate or allow you in or answer any questions. We're not allowed to question our government.

But you're allowed to have this program, which is more than could be said about many countries.

We're not on the air yet, are we? I never believe anything in the world of entertainment until it actually happens and the check clears the bank. I've had a gentleman's bet with my crew that these shows would never air.

Originally, the show was going to show both sides of the conspiracy. But the show then evolved while we were doing it, because it's very difficult to show both sides when one side won't cooperate at all.

Then how can you be sure the side that does cooperate isn't just a bunch of crackpots?

I'm not sure. But how can I be sure the government's not?

One of the alleged coverups you investigate involves 9/11. Do you believe the terrorist attacks were an inside job?

I believe that the government has not been truthful with us about it. Yes, absolutely. That there's massive holes in the story they've told. That none of these questions have ever been adequately addressed.

Saying you have doubts is different than saying you think it was an inside job.

You can't prove anything. All evidence has been destroyed, pretty much.

Why would the government want to do such things?

Well, what changed after 9/11? We're in two wars, passage of Patriot Act and all that. Our entire society changed that day. We've become paranoid. We think there's a terrorist behind every tree. I live in Mexico half the year. And when I'm down there, for six months, I never hear the word "terrorism." When I'm up here, I can't go a day without hearing it.

On another episode, you investigate the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), an Alaska-based facility that bombards the ionosphere with high-frequency signals and that conspiracy theorists say is used for nefarious purposes, like weather control. You go to HAARP and can't get in, yet the facility offers open houses to the public. How secretive could they be?

Every other year, they invite people in for coffee and doughnuts. If that's all it is, an unclassified research project, then why wouldn't I be allowed in? It gets its funding from DARPA [the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency], the most secret part of the Pentagon. That doesn't raise concern with you?

It doesn't seem like in that episode you really got to the bottom of anything.

How can you get to the bottom, with a one-hour TV show and the limited resources I have? Hey, I'm doing a lot better than you guys are! How's that for you?

You don't think journalists investigate anything?

Not much. They investigate the death of Anna Nicole Smith, which I won't be covering.

This is not your first venture into TV hosting since leaving the governorship. What happened to "Jesse Ventura's America," which ran briefly on MSNBC in 2003?

It was awful. I was basically silenced. When I came out of office, I was the hottest commodity out there. There was a bidding war between CNN, Fox and MSNBC to get my services. MSNBC ultimately won. I was being groomed for a five day-a-week TV show by them. Then, all of a sudden, weird phone calls started happening: "Is it true Jesse doesn't support the war in Iraq?"

My contract said I couldn't do any other cable TV or any news shows, and they honored and paid it for the duration of it. So in essence I had my silence purchased. Why do you think you didn't hear from me for three years? I was under contract. They wouldn't even use me as a consultant!

When you live in Mexico, your houses all have names. I almost named my house Casa MSNBC because they bought it. I was paid like a professional athlete, and I got very wealthy. For doing nothing.

Speaking of Mexico, what's a patriotic guy like you doing living there?

The weather's nicer. You ever live in Minnesota in the winter? Come on up and do it for 30 years in a row and see how you enjoy it.

When you were governor, you disliked journalists, whom you dubbed "media jackals." But being a TV host means a lot more media jackals in your life.

I don't mind it. I'm not accountable now for my state, only for myself. I can live with that a whole lot better. I don't have to muzzle myself when I'm a civilian. When you're a governor, you kind of have to do it, because you represent the whole state. You have to leave your personal opinions to yourself a lot. I learned that.

Keep Your Fingers Crossed

Bless Ventura- He is a national treasure! I hope his show does air! I've boycotted TV since I was 17. I really think it is the most powerful tool of psychological warfare ever devised. However, I will try to watch whatever Ventura produces; he has my respect.

Big Brother may be watching, but it's not who most people think.
Jesse's investigation of government surveillance on its citizens
uncovers a nationwide program that allegedly turns local businessmen
and office workers into spies, snooping on their neighbors and
ratting out their friends in exchange for information and special
privileges from the FBI. Some even claim those special privileges
include a "license to kill."

Featured Experts and Eyewitnesses: Jeff Dahlstrom, a former U.S. Air
Force pilot who has dedicated his life to uncovering the truth about
9/11; Katherine Albrecht, a popular media commentator and author of
Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your
Every Move with RFID; Elwood "Woody" G. Norris, award-winning
inventor and technology integrator; Matthew Rothschild; editor of The
Progressive magazine, one of the leading voices for peace and social
justice; and Tim Shorrock, investigative journalist and author of
Spies for Hire: The Secret World of Intelligence Outsourcing.

Premieres Wed, December 9 at 10P
Jesse steps into America's most controversial conspiracy by
challenging the 9-11 Commission report and considering the claim that
the September 11th attacks were an inside job. At the urging of
victims' families, he finds witnesses who claim the towers were
brought down by revolutionary explosives that were placed in plain
sight, but no one knew what they were. Ventura also hears from those
who claim the missing black box flight recorders were actually
recovered. And he is told a shocking story about who may have been in
the cockpits before the jets took off.

Featured Experts and Eyewitnesses: Physicist Steven Jones, who says
he found evidence of thermite, a bomb material, in the residue from
Ground Zero; explosives expert Van Romero, who performed a test
purported to show that liquid thermite can make steel girders burn
hotter and faster; demolition expert Brent Blanchard, who says that
no inspection for explosive materials was done at the scene; former
Air Force pilot Jeff Dahlstrom, who is convinced that 9-11 was a
"false flag" operation carried out to push the country into war; Mike
Bellone, a recovery worker at Ground Zero who says that he saw
airline flight recorders recovered at the scene; Dave Lindorff, a
journalist, who says that the recorders were recovered, inspected and
turned over to the FBI; Dale Leppard, a former head of the Airline
Pilots Association who insists recorders are always found; and former
FBI investigator Jack Cloonan, who disputes claims the recorders were

In a remote region of Alaska, a special government research center is
said to be testing the High Frequency Active Auroral Research
Program, which, some believe, allows radio waves to be developed as a
potential weapon. If true, these radio waves could be used to change
the weather and control people's minds. Jesse and his team head to
the Last Frontier to investigate, but nervous security guards try to
stop them at the gate of the facility and keep them from finding the
real purpose first-hand. The team also talks to a scientist who
demonstrates how radio waves can be used to literally move clouds.

Featured Experts and Eyewitnesses include: Dr. Brooks Agnew, a
physicist who believes he accidentally triggered an earthquake by
using radio waves to locate underground oil; Dr. Roger Smith,
director of the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska at
Fairbanks, which coordinates research at the HAARP facility in
Gakona, AK; Dr. Nick Begich, a native Alaskan and anti-HAARP
activist; and Robert Eastlund, the son of Bernard Eastlund, whose
ideas were allegedly the catalyst for the creation of HAARP.

The Bilderberg Group is a collection of the world's elite who meet
once a year at a luxury hotel and, the story goes, decide how it will
run the world. Their latest alleged plan is to thin out the world's
population through disease and vaccines. In this stunning episode,
Jesse attempts to infiltrate the Bilderberg Group, expose its well-
known members and stop their latest "soft kill" plan before it's too

Featured Experts and Eyewitnesses: Daniel Estulin, author of The True
Story of the Bilderbergs; Alex Jones, syndicated radio host and
documentary filmmaker; Max Keiser, former Wall Street broker who
claims Goldman Sachs used political influence to deliberately crash
the market and eliminate competition; and Jim Tucker, author and

Premieres Wed, January 6 at 10P
Experts warn that forces within the government have revived a program
that uses mind control techniques to turn ordinary citizens into
programmed assassins. This real-life "Manchurian Candidate" scheme
seems outlandish, until Jesse tracks down evidence of how it is
reportedly being done. He even goes face-to-face with a man who
claims he's one of the killers.

Apocalypse 2012
Premieres Wed, January 13 at 10P
There have been numerous apocalyptic predictions that the world is
heading for disaster in 2012 and that the government is allegedly
preparing to save and protect the elite, while leaving others to fend
for themselves. Ventura goes in search of the alleged Top Secret
underground bunkers being built in places like the Nevada desert and
the White House. He even explores evidence that the largest such
bunker is currently under construction in a major metropolitan area,
hidden in plain sight.

Featured Experts and Eyewitnesses: Lawrence Joseph, author of
Apocalypse 2012 and former chairman of an advanced plasma physics
research and development company; Larry Hall, owner of a what he
describes as "a 14-story survival condo," where he says he has a
waiting list of buyers willing to plunk down $2 million a piece; Jay
Weidner, a conspiracy researcher who says a secret bunker exists
underneath one of the Midwest's largest international airports;
Patrick Geryl, leader of a 300-person survival group who plans to
head to Africa in 2012; George Green, a former corporate banker and
high-ranking military serviceman who claims to have been involved
with the building of these underground bases.

With you in the struggle,
WeAreChangeLA -
I work for the 9-11 First Responders, the 9-11 victims, and all those who are being slaughtered and tortured because of 9-11.

I am sad to say

........i don't have truTV. Think there is anyway we can get someone to put the episodes on line? At least the 9/11 one.
You're a Damn good man Jesse ! Thank you for all your efforts.

He is a national treasure!

He sure is but so are you. Keep up the great work. I wish I had your energy. Take some time off with your wonderful family on Turkey Day. By the way lets all focus on the New World Order boys. Starting with the Rothschild's and Rockefellers. They are the ones who call the shots. Obama, Bush, Cheney and the rest are just puppets of the Illuminati as they like to be called. What a bunch of devil worshiping thugs.

Do us all a favor - WATCH

All we can do is support Jesse and his venue to expose these things. The entertainment world reacts to money and ratings. If we generate huge ratings, the show will be considered a success and allowed to continue until further intervention, at which time, hopefully the show will have made big enough waves for everyone to say, "Why are they shutting this down?" I am EXTREMELY optimistic about this and hope it is just the beginning.

The love that you withhold is the pain that you carry


you got that one right Dave.I am optimistic also. Thanks Jesse.


we have to be careful that this serie doesn't portray the Truth Movement as one of numerous Conspiracy Theories... Unfortunately, some themes chosen are rather... let's say... "Alex Johnsy".... It could also backfire and be counterproductive.

I have to admit

I have to admit that I have similar concerns. 9/11 stands apart from most of these other topics if only because the OCT remains THE psychological weapon which they continue to employ to considerable effect. More than any of these other topics, dismantling the official story of 9/11 has the power to bring down the whole house of cards--and we wouldn't want it get 'lost in the shuffle.'

I agree...

...and, knowing a bit about those other subjects, they are not as researched as 9/11 and therefore open the way for real conspiracy theories, hence the program's name! HAARP for instance, is intriguing but it remains subject to speculations since there are no tangible facts that prove the rumors or suspicions about it. I also think that 9/11 is the fundamental issue that, once researched, can open your eyes about a lot of other topics. Indeed, the day the official myth about 9/11 will be destroyed in the public eye, the rest will follow. So, on one hand, I'm a bit worry about the fact that 9/11 is mixed with those issues, but on the other hand, it can be a good strategy to try to spread the info that the MM won't.

I really trust Ventura's intelligence. He didn't choose subjects like chemtrails and rods, that's a good start!

Too bad we can't get this channel in Canada.

His approach

of asking questions and putting the burden of proof on the Establishment is good. If the Establishment can't give us a coherent account, without holes, that answers the normal questions, and is backed by credible, verifiable evidence, why should the public, who the govt is supposed to be accountable to, buy it? Why should the Establishment be allowed to use their tissue of lies to justify anything, let alone wars, a police state and the subversion of the Constitution. People might assume it's only a little incompetence and criminal negligence that's being covered up- but even this doesn't stand up to the evidence that's already in the public record. Examining 9/11 in any detail leads naturally to the conclusion there's something monstrously criminal being covered up, and this is not tolerable in a democratic Republic. Actually, studying 9/11 leads naturally to the conclusion is that an 'inside job' is being covered up, with the defacto collusion of Congress, the corporate media, and the elite investor class that owns them.

I think Jessie is the real deal

Would love to see Richard Gage & AE911 on his show.

The interviews with Mike

The interviews with Mike Bellone and Dave Lindorff regarding the flight recorders should be interesting.

This is good and all but the

This is good and all but the fact that the show is called "Conspiracy Theory" already undermines the information and whatever possible message that can come across.
Conspiracy Theory = A line of rationale deserving of ridicule. An argument with no sound basis in reality.
