Alex Jones only had Jesse Ventura for one hour on Saturday, December 18, so the question and answer session was fast and furious.
The first topic of conversation was the collapse of the Minnesota Metrodome. Ventura wondered why, at 5 AM in an empty stadium, Fox News just happened to have cameras running and pointed directly at the spot in the ceiling where the dome was going to collapse. One camera was focused on the exact spot and others provided a wide angle shots across the dome.
When Alex asked Ventura if he had any thoughts about the news that Larry King was going to retire after 25 years on the air, Ventura said he’d been invited to the retirement party but didn’t plan to attend. He said he had no intention of exposing himself to the body searches being conducted at airports now, calling them a sexual assault that we’d never tolerate out on the street, so why should we tolerate it in an airport?
Commenting on the news that first there were 800 Walmarts and now there are more than 9000 retail stores displaying the Napolitano videos that tell everyone to report suspicious activity, Ventura suggested that everyone start reading up on the history of the Nazis because history always repeats itself. He then quoted Albert Einstein, “A foolish faith in authority is the enemy of truth.”
Alex mentioned Ventura’s role in the Stephen King movie, “The Running Man.” Ventura agreed that Napolitano’s “See Something, Say Something” campaign is similar to what takes place in the movie. Regular citizens are encouraged, and even rewarded, for reporting their neighbors for any number of ridiculous reasons.
On the topic of Julian Assange, Ventura says the authorities are blaming the messenger. He also asked, when does it become treasonous to tell the truth and expose a government lie? What kind of message does that send our children? According to Ventura, it’s alright for government to lie but it’s not OK for you to catch them or expose them or tell the truth.
Ventura and Jones agreed that it’s laughable that Huckabee, O’Reilly and others want Assange brought up on treason charges. You have to be an American citizen to be charged with treason and Assange is Australian. Ventura noted that there is, however, a bill pending that would allow someone from another country to be charged with treason but it’s like closing the barn door after the horse gets out. How can we pass a new law and then make it retroactive?
When asked what he thinks of Assange Ventura explained that Assange hasn’t broken any laws, all he’s done is reveal documents. He’s also not a U. S. citizen so he doesn’t have any allegiance to the U. S. government or any of our policies. Ventura believes that if everything Assange has revealed is the truth, then he doesn’t belong in jail at all and he fully supports everything Assange is doing.
Ventura said, “They’re going to try to make an example of Assange and I don’t believe that in a free society we should allow that to happen.”
Ventura noted that there’s also been a call by Lieberman and other officials to indict people at the NY Times for publishing Wikileaks information, as well. According to Ventura, “This Wikileaks stuff is going to rank right up there with 9/11 and the murder of Kennedy. They’re using it to curtail our freedom of speech. …Is there any doubt that they’re running a blitz against every one of our liberties?”
