Relishes hosting conspiracy show because I love to attack our government'; ABC host: Ventura's most 'out there' theory is US was warned about 9/11
A dozen years after shocking the nation with an upset win as an Independent candidate in the 1998 Minnesota gubernatorial election, former wrestler Jesse Ventura doesn't support third parties anymore.
Will Napolitano bring radical conspiracies and praise of 9-11 Truth leaders to his new Fox show?
April 27, 2010 10:26 am ET by Eric Hananoki
Last week, Fox Business announced that it would begin airing senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano's FoxNews.com show Freedom Watch. Given the show's history, the move raises questions about whether the channel will allow Napolitano to mainstream and promote fringe guests and radical anti-government conspiracy theories.
In contrast to his Fox News colleagues, Napolitano has used his FoxNews.com show to praise and promote two of the most visible leaders of the 9-11 Truth movement, Alex Jones and Jesse Ventura. On Freedom Watch last month, Napolitano called guest Ventura a "champion of exposing government fraud and lies," and promoted Ventura's belief that the government either "participate[d]" in 9-11 or "knew it was going to happen and didn't do very much to stop it."

9-11 Conspiracy Theorist Hits the Road... Infamous 9-11 conspiracy theorist David Ray Griffin, whose books insist the Bush Administration and not al Qaeda blew up the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, is launching a speaking tour this week to help merge the "9-11 Truth Movement" with "more traditional Peace and Anti-War groups" against the "illegal and immoral war" in Afghanistan. The tour also presages Griffin's next book, Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory.

FOX News Presents WTC 7
Recently, two prominent articles were published – in opposing veins: “NPR & Trust in Government,” by Robert Shetterly (04/19), which called out NPR for allowing the propaganda operative Philip Zelikow to “frame [a] discussion” on “Trust in government,” while failing to note his long record of purposeful (world stage) obfuscation, including a treacherous role in the area of WTC 7, and “Shame On Jesse Ventura!,” by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro (another operative) (04/21), who asserts “that [Larry] Silverstein planned to use controlled demolition on WTC 7” – as if it’s common knowledge/no big deal. The focus here is on Shapiro’s brash, out of the blue, aggressiveness (under the cover of being clueless to the overall picture/consequences), while Shetterly’s should be read for many reasons: clarity, as a depiction of rare courage in our dominant landscape, and as a partial portrayal of how Timing works in our fabricated environment.
Foxnews has chosen to attack Jesse Ventura. Most of the early comments are incredibly ill-informed and pro-Fox. I tried to submit a comment suggesting people Google Operation Northwoods but despite trying twice was unable to get it up there due to a computer problem at my end. I've never heard of this guy criticizing Jesse but he claims to have first hand experience at Ground Zero. The piece is a joke because the guy doesn't seem to know anything that's happened in 9/11 Truth since about October of 2001.
I was reading the following hit piece against Jesse Ventura by Fox News, and as I was thinking that this has got to be the most ridiculous hit piece I've ever seen (so over-the-top that it almost reads like something out of the Onion, such as when he says he was there and saw with his own eyes WTC7 fall "silently"), I did a major double take when I read this part:
Shortly before the building collapsed, several NYPD officers and Con-Edison workers told me that Larry Silverstein, the property developer of One World Financial Center was on the phone with his insurance carrier to see if they would authorize the controlled demolition of the building – since its foundation was already unstable and expected to fall.
Now, of course, the author's claim is that the building just so happened to collapse before any controlled demolition could actually take place.
I don't think the 911blogger community needs to be reminded that a controlled demolition could not have been set up in the few hours after the attack.
Popular Radio Show Host Stephanie Miller speaks about the 9/11 Commission Report.
We can add another one to the Media Professionals Who Question 9/11 list.
The clip begins just after the 4 minute mark.
Jesse covers a wide range of topics in this hour long interview with Alex Jones.
Alex welcomes back to the show former Minnesota governor, retired professional wrestler and color commentator, Navy Seal veteran, actor, and the host of Tru TV's popular series Conspiracy Theory, Jesse Ventura. Jesse's latest book is American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies That the Government Tells Us. Ventura's previous book is Don't Start the Revolution Without Me!

Huffington Post's Ventura Censorship Backfires
March 16, 2010, 9:47AM
Did you know that Adam Lambert has a bulge in his crotch? Were you aware that the world's shortest man recently died? Are you informed enough to know that Jessica Simpson says men are "undressing her with their eyes"?
Sorry, let me rephrase all that: Do you give a shit about any of that retarded "news"? I sure as hell don't, but these were among the many absurd storys I found on the front page of a tabloid called the Huffington Post.
I am calling to all of you to send this story to my local paper, The Courier.
http://www.prisonplanet.com/huffington-post-kills-jesse-venturas-piece-on-911.html to my local paper The Courier.
It is a copy of Jesse Venturas piece on 9/11 that the Huffington Post censored.
Here is the editors link to send your request to run this story.
Respectfully request that they run this story because it is an important issue and censorship that the Huffington Post is practicing can not go on.

Russia Today :: Jesse Ventura's new book American Conspiracies questions the government's position on 9/11. He wrote about the same topic on The Huffington Post, but his article was banned. Read it here.
By Jesse Ventura:
You didn't see anything about it in the mainstream media, but two weeks ago at a conference in San Francisco, more than one thousand architects and engineers signed a petition demanding that Congress begin a new investigation into the destruction of the World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.
That's right, these people put their reputations in potential jeopardy because they don't buy the government's version of events. They want to know how 200,000 tons of steel disintegrated and fell to the ground in 11 seconds. They question whether the hijacked planes were responsible – or whether it could have been a controlled demolition from inside that brought down the twin towers and Building 7.
Richard Gage, a member of the American Institute of Architects and the founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, put it like this: "The official Federal Emergency Management [Agency] and National Institute of Standards and Technology reports provide insufficient, contradictory and fraudulent accounts of the circumstances of the towers' destruction." He's especially disturbed by Building 7, whose 447 stories came down in "pure free-fall acceleration" that afternoon – even though it was never hit by an aircraft.
