Why is Jesse Ventura a dirtbag?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

This morning on radio, Glenn had some choice words for people who criticizing “American Sniper” Chris Kyle who was killed over the weekend. He opened the show with a critique of Jesse Ventura, who had sued Kyle for defaming him in his book.

Glenn read from CNN:

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura filed a lawsuit last year accusing Kyle of defaming him in the book by exaggerating his description of a fight between the two at the wake for SEAL Mikey Monsoor, who was killed in Iraq in 2006.

The book quoted Ventura, also a Navy veteran, as saying he “hates America” and telling Kyle, who was mourning the death of a SEAL teammate, “You deserve to lose a few.” Kyle described punching Ventura out at the Coronado, California, bar.

In the suit, Ventura denied making the statements in the book, contending that “the entire story about a confrontation with and physical assault and battery of Governor Ventura was false and defamatory.”

At his deposition last November, Kyle continued to insist his book accurately described his clash with Ventura.
“He was complaining about the war, that we shouldn’t be there,” Kyle testified. “Complaining about Bush, that, you know, Bush was a war criminal. How we were killing innocent men and women and children overseas.”

Kyle acknowledged in his deposition saying that he hated Ventura “with a passion.”

“I’ve heard him say those very things,” Glenn told the audience.

“Jesse Ventura is the biggest dirtbag I’ve ever met.  I’ve had the displeasure of meeting him I believe twice.  Once, I had the grand displeasure to have to sit at CNN in the makeup chair next to that guy.  He was getting ready to go on Larry King.  I was getting ready to do my show.  And at that time I was just one of the schlubs so I didn’t have the option of not being in the same room with Jesse Ventura.  And Jesse Ventura spouted his nonsense and his conspiracy theories and his absolute vial hatred for anything that represents anything decent in America,” Glenn said.

Glenn said that Ventura plans to continue his lawsuit by going after his family.

Ventura’s attorney David Olsen claims they can still go after Kyle’s estate or his book publisher for the $50,000 Ventura seeks in the lawsuit. “There are things we can do,” Olsen said, “and I know that the governor still wants to clear his name.”

“Chris never took a dime from his book.  His best-selling book –  he didn’t take a dime for it.  He poured it all into his charity.  What’s his charity?  To help other veterans.  Meanwhile, Jesse Ventura all he does is spread hate.  Chris tried to spread love.  Chris tried to help.”

    Jesse Ventura has proven to be a hate-filled dirt bag that should be cast into the night. He no longer knows what honor, integrity, compassion or loyalty means anymore.

    Well Glenn I guess if you live by the sword, you die by it, as Ron Paul said.  The drone killing is supposedly for terrorists.  I agree these drones flying over the US should be outlawed, but maybe you can see how innocent people overseas might be PO’d about their use also.

    What does it take for the government to kill you anymore?

    Just stand in opposition to the current administration, and under their ‘kill US citizens w/o due process’ and the ‘detain w/o due process’ executive orders you can be hit at any time, place, and location when the admin deems you to be linked by suspicion alone to any terrorist group.

    In short, we have a President who is willing to murder our own people for the sake of his holding onto power for as long as he can. Its only a matter of when, and not if, the bloodshed begins.

    Understandably indeed, especially as on Obama’s watch they are being used against all targets regardless of innocents around the targets.

    I have to disagree Jesse Ventura gives dirt bags a bad name and you disrespected every dirt bag out there right now. I mean the guy thinks the twin towers where melted by ray guns invented be the government and yes I watched his show I needed a fool to laugh at late one night and seen that he had a show on. Boy he is missing a few screws.

    Obama hates “Whitey” (read his books)  He views historic Christianity as “Whiteys religion”.  And “Christian Whitey attacked Moslems in Iraq and Afghanistan
    Obama sees drones over American as “Bringing it back home to Whitey”
    Who will the drones be used on?
    Who does Obama see as “His enemies”
    Is Eric Holders Criminal activity being protected from exposure by White representatives?

    Absolutely everything is being portrayed as racist by this President, his wife and their sycophant followers.

    Jesse Ventura’s behavior is summed up in many circles as “Typical white moron”
     
    The parallel in Judges Chapter 9 says it all.
    Lazy Liberal and Materialistic America elected a bramble bush who has set himself to burn down the mighty Oaks

    Kinda hard to “clear your name” when the guy’s been murdered and is no longer on this earth. 

    Pretty soulless to be pursuing a defamation lawsuit when the defendant is dead. Against the family?!?!?!? Can they please be allowed to grieve? 

    You know, Glenn never has mentioned Ventura in all of the time that I’ve been following him these past few years. I always was curious as to Glenn’s thoughts on Ventura, and now I know. 

    I’m not sure I understand Ventura’s motivation- other than self-promotion.

    I don’t know where you’re getting that information from. Yes on the steroids part, but it doesn’t cause brain damage. 

    Hormones can and do alter brain chemistry, which subsequently can alter moods, etc. For example, “‘roid rage” or the depression that can follow being ‘off’ of such drugs for a period of time. 

    But they hardly cause brain damage.

  • jen

    Jesse’s story is right and Kyle offered to settle, but backed out when that settlement included having Kyle admitting he was lying.

    There are no police records of this fight as Kyle claims the cops showed up and that he ‘ran away’.  What a coward to run away – you’d expect better from a navy seal. 

    The story is stupid.

    Jesse Ventura is a patriot and there are no interviews anywhere of him spewing hatred.  Glenn of course as you know is a liar and has lied about newt, trump, and ron paul. 

    Other than Beck now and Kyle, noone has ever heard of Ventura even remotely saying anything to that effect.  Of course, we have long known that Ventura is not for the Iraq war.

    Numerous navy seals have also come forward to say the incident kyle put in his book never occurred.  And, Ventura only went to that bar once, and not on that date.

    You on the other hand spit on integry and compassion!!!! 

  • jen

    To kill, the Republicans voted for NDAA to give Obama that power to kill.  Dufus – this includes Allen West, Bachman, and Rubio – all people Glenn says he likes.

  • jen

    Ventura’s motivation is quite clear – to clear his name as he never was at that bar or spoke to kyle or made those comments. 

    Kyle’s publisher just wanted to create controvery to sell his book. 

    There was no need to even put that incident at the bar, other than to create drama.

    Pusuing a defamation lawsuit once someone has passed away is normal and legal and many do it, including companies as well.

    You are the heartless one, or rather filled with darkness.

    People don’t get into such lawsuits for fame, unless they are whores etc…  Ventura already has fame and no need for more promotion with lawsuits – duh!

    Whatever happened at that bar will probably stay a mystery. Are there witnesses who can swear to the truth? I doubt that Ventura is any less of an American hero than Kyle was, as they both were members of the SEALS. And ask how many SEALS oppose the war in Iraq or, Afghanistan? Glenn seems to be on the warpath these days by expressing HIS feelings for and against others, who just don’t fit his favored hero.

    This incident has been discussed at length on many SEAL and other SpecOps websites, and the opinion runs about 95% for Kyle.  The owner of the bar (McP’s) and a dozen or so SEALS that witnessed the incident back up Kyle 100%.

    Ventura has always been a scumbag, and his “service” was as phony as his wrestling.  He was never on any SEAL team in combat … in fact, was never IN combat, period, and never set foot in Vietnam.  When SEALS were desperate for volunteers in RVN and sent the word out to UDT teams (like where Jesse was assigned as a supply clerk in the Philippines), Jesse carefully did NOT volunteer for SEAL duty and spent the war in a nice, safe place.  He never had the SEAL NEC code (5326) while on active duty, and now his spokesmen are claiming that Jesse never claimed to be a SEAL, or in combat, or in V

    Don’t know if the bar fight ever happened but I think in light of Kyle’s death, Ventura should drop the suit. It doesn’t matter at this point. The book was published, the denials are flying. It happened or it didn’t. A lawsuit is not going to change anything other than make Ventura look like a jerk and perhaps give the impression that the bar fight did happen. Man up Jessie and do the right thing!! Let the family grieve. 

  • smokehill

     Ventura’s strictly in this for the money, since he’s basically unemployable anymore and lives off a small pension.  Hollywood won’t touch him since he’s gone soft in the head, if not a bit psychotic — how crazy do you have to be before the Hollywood fruits won’t hire you?   And he must be the only ex-governor in history that can’t get a job even in his home state.

    The word thru the SEAL blogs is that Ventura has given up his US citizenship and is residing in some ex-pat community in Mexico, trying — with no success — to promote book or movie ideas he’s dreamed up.  Fifty grand could keep him in tequila and tacos for quite a while.

    It’s pretty sad to see him reduced to just being a part-time conspiracy pimp.

  • smokehill

     If Jesse Ventura were a real man, he’d grow a pair and apologize to the combat veterans for all those years he lied about his “service,” claiming he “hunted man,” was a SEAL in Vietam, in combat, etc.

    He scammed the public for decades, and now pretends he never said all those things in the first place.

    For shame !!!

    These are not the actions of a real man — just a coward who’s embarrassed that he hid out in the Philippines as a supply clerk while real men fought and died in Vietnam.

     So, was Ventura there once or not at all. The first sign of a bad liar is forgetting what you said in the first lie. You seem to have a lot of so called facts with no show of proof. You must be a liberal.

    Ventura is a whore. A publicity whore.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kitty.voelker Kitty Voelker

    Jen says Ventura is right. It must be so. If Kyle offered to settle it was probably for nuisance value. When Ventura wanted him to say he lied, Kyle probably decided settling wasn’t worth it.

    Any money that dirtbag Ventura makes goes right into that fat piehole of his. He’s despicable. God Bless Chris Kyle and his family, my prayers and thanks are with them.

  • smokehill

     ”Ventura already has his fame”

    Is that what you call LYING about your service, insulting REAL combat veterans by claiming you were in combat in Vietnam, as a SEAL?  When it’s a lie on all three counts?

    Kyle’s record as the top sniper is what sold his book, and it was never promoted on the basis of that incident at McP’s.

    What Ventura is denying is being at some OTHER bar, owned by someone else.  Let’s see him deny he got punched out at McP’s, especially to the owner’s face, since the owner of McP’s (also a formed SEAL) backs Chris Kyle’s story.

    Ventura can go after the estate, but it’s just a nuisance suit, as any lawyer will tell you.  The suit is even deader now that Chris Kyle can’t be called to the stand, which makes it pretty hard to prove intent to malign, since Ventura is a public figure.  If Chris had intended to malign Ventura’s character — talk about beating a long-dead horse — he would have used his name & details instead.

    Considering Ventura’s long history of lying about his “combat SEAL” exploits, it’s pretty hard to even argue that he has any character to attack.

    He’d be smart to keep out of a courtroom where he’ll be exposed as the phony we all know he is.

    Ventura has proved time and time again that he isn’t the brightest light bulb in the package.  I can think of no reason to even listen to him, or read what he has to say.  I wasn’t there in the Coronado bar – but, I’d bet he got his ass kicked.

    You’re over the top Beck.  Kyle lied about the so-called fight he had with Ventura, in order to promote his book.  The bar owner is a friend of Ventura’s, and along with several other SEALS present at the time, supported the claim that Kyle’s narrative was complete fiction.  Because you, Beck, refuse to hear any evidence (and there is plenty) showing the only “conspiracy” was perpetrated by the Government, you show yourself to be a ranting uninformed useful idiot.

    Scum Bag Steve Austin fans are really like that. Guess some of Ventura’s are too.

  • landofaahs

    Frankly I don’t think much of Ventura and I don’t know what really happened in their fight.  Frankly I don’t care.  I give each a certain respect for serving their country.  Frankly Mr. Kyle was playing with fire in giving weapons to people with mental issues and it was bound to end badly.  It was not too bright.  I seem to recall a lot of people blaming Adam’s mother for having guns around an autistic son.  Can you tell me what the difference is between that and Mr. Kyles situation?

  • smokehill

     Except that Jesse was never a SEAL — he was on UDT Team 12, a whole lot different from SEALS, especially in RVN.  SEALS were constantly in the middle of it, but not UDT.  Compare the massive casualty figures of SEAL against the almost nonexistent casualty figures for UDT.

    Kyle was seriously in combat, again and again.  Ventura was nowhere near combat — never set foot in Vietnam and never saw combat.  Those war stories he told for decades were just that — and as phony as his wrestling.

    I give due credit to anyone who enlists, and especially in wartime.  But Chris Kyle actually saw the elephant, whereas Jesse the Mouth was not even near enough to see it with a telescope.

    Kyle was a murderer……an invader of another country… a killer of those who justifiably tried to evict the American invaders. IF Iraqi soldiers invaded this country…. overthrew our government and tried to impose a gov’t sympathetic to Iraq.  I’d be trying to expel every Iraqi soldier.

    Those Hollywood fruits are infact very much pro-Obama - that in your book clears them as respectable.  Hollywood doesn’t touch on truth and is very corrupt, hence what they reject is usually bec that is a good thing.

    Like many who go overseas, Ventura does spend time in Mexico but still fully retains his citizenship – that is a fact. 

    So, Beck doesn’t delve into any conspiracies???, but just other republicans that don’t support Beck entirely.

  • jen

    Agreed.  Although I don’t think Kyle should have written such a story in his book, I think Kyle and Ventura are both true patriots – both having the best interest of America at heart unlike politicians though I don’t entirely agree with things either did.

    The animosity towards Ventura is unbelievable as he also served in the military and does take pride in being a Navy Seal – yet Americans are putting him down because he doesn’t agree with all the decisions politicians make with use of the military.

    As far as helping PSTD veterans by using weapons could have been a good thing overall.  I trust he did this with credible research and had some good results.  As the motive behind the killing is not clear, I wouldn’t blame Kyle’s tactic in helping others to deal with PSTD.

  • jen

    Kyle’s death should have no bearing in Ventura’s attempt to clear his name and get his story out there.  You are suggesting Ventura do a favor to Kyle, but no favor is warranted.  Life goes on and Ventura is left with what he believes to be defamation and he has to live with that although Kyle and his family does not.

    Clearly, you want to protect Kyle, but for those who are not emotionally vested in Kyle don’t have to give in order to appease Kyle’s family.

Make up your mind! The owner of the bar has a personal relationship with Jesse who is helping Jesse cover up for his embarrassment as being whooped which would also explain why there would have been no police report.

    I agree with Jen:

    And I wonder how many people who are offering their opinion on Chris Kyle—including Glenn Beck—have actually read his book or closely studied his profile. If one has an open, critical-thinking mind which is immune to government/military propaganda, and you honestly profile Chris Kyle, then you will find some really serious personality flaws in the man. By reading his own words, I find Chris Kyle to be just another bloodthirsty, psychopathic, government-trained, killing machine. Yes, Chris was good at his work, and he loved his work. I find Chris Kyle’s mental posture far more “despicable” than Ron Paul’s. The window into the mind of this trained psychopath is given by his own words and deeds, written in his own book.

    I’ll post a link to a well researched article that offers the other side of the story regarding this brave, mentally deranged killer, Chris Kyle ………

    http://www.freedominourtime.blogspot.com/2012/02/pseudo-courage-of-chris-kyle.html

    There are two WW2 combat veterans left alive in my family, one is my father and the other is his brother. My father was a frog man and an underwater demolitions expert. Between my dad and my uncle, they have 18 combat medals. They both have been through some of the most bloody, horrific, up-close-and-personal combat on both land and sea that you could imagine, including kamikaze attacks where my uncle’s ship was sunk and he had to float in shark infested waters for three days. Both men were/are trained killers, yes, but they are not psycho-lovers or their work because they hated every minute of the killing; and there is a big difference between their mental posture and Chris Kyle’s. Chris loved his work, and he loved the Military Industrial Complex. Chris loved his government issued sword…..

    I suppose that by your ill informed and extremely juvenile definition that I would be one of these as well, since I spent the great majority of my career in Special Forces and am both a trained sniper and one who has taken a few shots.  Nothing like Chris Kyle though, but then who has.

     Ventura’s motivation is quite clear — he’s a has-been who, like all Hollywood types, thinks that even bad publicity is better than no publicity.  Filing a lawsuit is cheap — getting national news attention is priceless.  He’s an actor — wrestling is acting, being a governor is acting, he’s a fame hog.  He would have sued Kanye West if he had a chance.

     Finally, a reputable reference.  I have read Kyle’s book and didn’t remember Ventura being named in it, so it’s curious that he would sue Kyle and now his family when he is not named and Ventura only goes on to show what a sniveling coward he is.

     Just because you decide to settle does NOT mean you are accepting guilt.  You obviously don’t know how it works.  Ventura’s lawyer is probably working for his 1/3, at least, of the settlement on contingency, he gets paid when he wins.

    Kyle probably decided it would be cheaper, & less intrusive to his life, to just pay the 50k than to rack up 75k in lawers’ bills to defend his name.  UNTIL pompus A$$ Ventura decided to make him retract the truth.

    Ventura is pretty much standard patriot baby boomer who goes to war and finds out how America really works.

     hate-filled dirt bag

    Lol. Well you know, Jesse sounds to me pretty much like I’d imagine John Wayne would sound if Wayne had had the misfortune to live in post 911 America. Over the top, vindictives for Ventura who is simply articulating a different point of view, and likely a point of view shared by a large percentage of Americans is divisive, unnecessary, and highly polarizing, and dishonest.

    One finds 1000′s of engineers and architects for 911 Truth. Not all people labeled “conspiracy theorists” are hate filled dirt bags. There is room for respected differences opinions among Americans, as long as this is still a free country and we don’t have a Federal Dept of “Unquestionable State Truth.”

    glen beck taking s–t out of context again–  Jesse Ventura tells it like it is and thank you gb for giving him your audience, which seems to be getting smaller after listening to all the silliness on your radio show.  Calling him names is classical left.  Why don’t you tell your audience why you really think JV is a d bag?  Incidentally, before the Seals were formed, the navy heros were called Under Water Demolition.

    “Of course, we have long known that Ventura is not for the Iraq war.”

    You got it!  If Jesse was for these endless post 911 wars, he’d be beloved by the war hawks and chickenhawks. People who likely never served in the military, wish to critique the insight of a veteran who was sent to an unwon and un-winnable war under the pretense his service would help stop the very communistic policies we now see emerging out of the Obama administration.

    I dunno. An old piece of cannon fodder has right to be grumpy and state his opinions. What the lesson here? Get a good yuppie college education and stay off the front line, so you can live to complain and encourage others to fight your battles.

    Huh? I’m “heartless”?!? What kind of ridiculous comment is that? “Filled with darkness”? No offense, Jen- but I don’t think that you’re dealing with reality with those comments. 

    Last time I checked, Ventura is NOT famous anymore. He had fame; which was cashed in to win public office in Minne-SOTA, and since leaving office has been largely either a ghost or a joke. His show on True TV is mostly a tremendous exercise in schizophrenia, and rarely produces any tangible evidence of anything other than the need for better mental health services. He was big in the 80′s. WWF. Was cool in ‘Predator’ and ‘The Running Man’ with Arnold. But that’s about it. Ventura is most definitely trying to cling to any popularity that he has had (hence the many books as he no longer can fly off of the top rope and get up). 

    This is hardly about “normal and legal”. This has nothing to do with “legal and many do it”. Smoking pot is legal in some States, and many “do it”, but I don’t think that makes it right. Same with abortion. 

    My issue is with such a public figure, who likes to drop falsehoods that he was a Navy SEAL, a former public servant, desperately trying to hang on to fame, would defame and insult not only the prestigious Navy SEALS, but also just the brotherhood of Man by stating that “you deserve to lose a few more”? 

    As a child of the mid-late 80′s, I can remember the Iron Curtain. We were the UNITED States; united against a dictatorial enemy that had to build Iron Walls to keeps its people in. An enemy that was more powerful than us. If we were to prevail, we had to be united. And we were. 

    Yet, today we still have the common enemy- communism in all forms, radical Islam- but are divided to the point of allowing philosophical differences in policy determine tolerance for the other. 

    I stand by my earlier comments. So someone says something to you that is harmful. Had this tragic event never happened, how many people actually read this book? How many walked away saying: “Wow. I will never look at Ventura the same again?” I argue that zero is the correct answer. 

    I say to Ventura- grow a pair. Awe, somebody spoke poorly of you. So what? He’s a nobody. A Has-been. 

    And we certainly get a glimpse into the character of the man- whether its “normal and legal” or not. Have some damn decency and let the family grieve. 

    After all, if he’s as famous as he claims, why sue for $50,000 in damages to a family that has lost its sole breadwinner? Based on your argument, he doesn’t need the money. 

    Or does he? 

    I’m heartless. Sheesh. I think it’s time for you to see the Wizard.

     Hey Keninmo.  There is an American Military Industrial complex. Just because someone with a clerk mentality can’t fathom something, doesn’t make it bat shit crazy.

  • Mike Nelson

    I have great respect for both Ventura and Kyle, and am willing to withhold judgement of these circumstances until the court case, when thus far unrevealed facts will likely come to light.  I think others would be wise to do the same.  Both of these men are patriots, but God knows, that doesn’t mean they are perfect.  Anyone who knows the personal stories of Warriors knows that most of them have been bitten by their ego or exploits, usually moreso after they have achieved prominence, and the real sin, imho, is the way our State media (read: *government-media complex hit-squads) urges them to greater conflict.

    As a matter of commentary on the 24-hour media: I find it highly unlikely that a physical altercation (read: a *bar fight*) involving a former governor, who was also a showcased public entertainment figure with a pre-eminent and conspicuous professional wrestling career, and the most celebrated Navy SEAL veteran of all time, would be ignored by the media.  As I recall, there was a firestorm that lasted about 36 hours, then when Ventura filed suit… nothing more.

    Strange, that.

    Finally, as a man whose current pursuit lies in the realm of conspiracy and cover-ups, it cannot be denied that Ventura’s reputation being damaged in the manner he asserts in this suit would clearly and unambiguously damage his current life’s work, because it undermines his credibility and good standing with the very people both he and Glenn appeal to: the American public.

    What I will say for certain is that Glenn is WRONG to stand on Kyle’s body and wave a flag, while pointing at Ventura to cry foul for something that can now no longer be unsaid, on the basis that the man behind the suit is “a dirtbag”.  I’m disappointed that he displays such a clearly anomalous tendency in this circumstance when it flies flagrantly in the face of his condemnation of the Administration for standing on the bodies of victims of gun crime in their attempt to disarm the nation.  Propaganda is propaganda, just as truth has no agenda.

    I know YOU know your “why” Glenn, and you’re entitled – and I agree with you about the gun-grabbing Reds – but you must either hold such positions based on the morality of truth, and apply this standard to all of your judgments, or you are engaging in hypocrisy and self-deceit.  Reference Dick Morris’ citation of an impending “Romney landslide” being what he thought was the right thing to do, after coming out as a truth-teller in regards to the inner workings of the Clinton Administration.

    You have to be right for the right reasons, or you’re just as wrong as Obama.  A bitter pill though it may be, I hope these words reach you and prove worthy of rumination and reflection.

     ”Pretty soulless to be pursuing a defamation lawsuit”

    Its pretty soulless to defame Ventura with words he never said.

    I’ve followed Ventura. He cranky but a straight shooter. A remark wishing fellow American soldiers dead is out of character and inconsistent with his highly respectful attitude toward the American fighting man. I don’t believe Ventura made this remark.

    Furthermore, the whole scenario of Ventura hanging at a Seals bar, getting drunk and mouthing off, doesn’t fit the man I see and hear. 

  • Anonymous

     ”Let’s see him deny he got punched out at McP’s,”

    Ventura is denying it. He said it never happened. 

    It takes more than a bar owner’s testimony, if Ventura can prove he was elsewhere, out of state, in Mexico, at the time of the alleged incident. When the rubber hits the road in court, that’s when stories change. As in “well, maybe it was someone who looked like Jesse Ventura who got punched out.” Who knows? We were all damned near passed out drunk.”

  • Anonymous

      “say to Ventura- grow a pair. Awe, somebody spoke poorly of you”

    Speaking poorly of someone is different than claiming someone made a  statement which defames his character.

    For example, some can say you are an asshole. Its an entirely different thing for someone to claim you got drunk and cursed blacks and Jews, which in turn caused you to lose your job, and gain a public reputation as a racist and anti-semite.

    Yeah, its despicable if Ventura made these remarks. Its even more despicable if Kyle was lying about the incident and what Ventura allegedly said.

    I personally think Kyle was lying for the simple fact, that for Ventura to file suit, and win, he would likely have to prove he was not in this bar on that night. If Ventura couldn’t prove beyond a shadow of doubt he wasn’t there, then a “he said, he said,” legal circus would do only harm to Ventura.

  • Anonymous

    The owner of the bar (McP’s) and a dozen or so SEALS that witnessed the incident back up Kyle 100%.

    Well that makes little sense. If the incident DID happen, then damage control strategy for Ventura would be different. “Yeah, there was incident with a loud mouth drunk looking to pick a fight while I was having a couple of drinks with old friends.”

    Ventura, however denies there was any incident, denies he was at that bar on that night, and denies (I believe) that he even drinks. Ventura has survived to old age likely because he is wise enough NOT to pick unnecessary fights with trained professionals half his age. On the other hand, Kyle is dead at age 30 likely because he pissed off the wrong trained professional soldier at a Texas shooting range.

    There is no doubt that Kyle was a real hero and patriot . However; that does not mean that he told the truth about what happen between himself and Jesse Ventura in that bar . There was never a Police Report filed and statements from the witnesses say it went down as Governor Ventura describes …. Yes; Ventura did not like the war in Iraq and said we should not be there and I agree with him … as do MANY other Veterans .
    There are many who would jump on the HATE bandwagon for whatever the reason or purpose ; especially if it puts them in the Spotlight …

     Yeah, way over the top. After all, what is Ventura’s “big sin,” which makes him a dirt bag? That he implied he was a combat veteran instead of simply a veteran? 

    No diddling kids or screwing around on his wife? No –”I didn’t have sex with that woman,” moment in his governorship –or bribery scandal?  No public drunkedness and drug stories?  If there was any dirt on Ventura, you’d bet he’d be buried by now.

    Why? Because he is popular and could conceivable lead or be a leader in a real third party movement. So they call out the talking heads, hysterical minions, mean girl gossips, cute metro-sexual slanders who give the signal to the crowd that Ventura is no longer cool. He’ a dirt bag.

And please don’t tell me this any any sort of ‘debate’, its a plain waste of time. As a non-American with a keen interest in what I think is a great country, I am struck by this ‘left vs right’ battle to determine who is the most patriotic. From a distance, you look like kids fighting over a ball that you don’t really want anyway. I think it takes a very strong mind to admit we simply ‘don’t know’ and wait for whatever facts to appear rather than cling to an ideology which ‘seems’ right and make assumptions of fact based on this. I know this is a ‘human’ flaw, not just a ‘US forum’ one, but it seems so sad that we still insist on throwing grenades to try and change opinion, when we haven’t questioned our own first.

    Oh, c’mon. The guy desperately clings to anything that he can use to prop himself up. Hanging out at SEALS bars is totally an MO for him- he claims he was a SEAL. I believed it, until I became aware that he was a part of Naval underwater demolitions Team 12, which later merged into SEAL teams, but he was never a SEAL as he claims. 

    He predated the program. 

    I don’t see the value in pursuing the widow of a veteran for a disagreement over a slight in which he wasn’t even named. Legal or not, it’s classless. 

    IF Kyle lied, then it’s over with. He’s dead. The grievance died with Kyle. His wife isn’t claiming to have punched him in the face for issuing anti-American statements. His wife isn’t trying to sell a book. Leave the family alone. 

    Unless Ventura is desperate for publicity. Does he need the $50,000 more than the widow and family? Be the bigger man that he keeps trying to claim that he is. 

    You know. Former NAVY SEAL, and all. 

    And what’s the deal with living in Drug-cartel run Mexico, by the way? He feels safer in that lawlessness?

    Man, no matter what “wrong” may have been done, the guy is now dead.

    It’s a PR nightmare. Oh, ok, we’re supposed to feel sympathy for 250+ lb former WWF, “strap this on your sore a_ _” Predator actor, because a special forces veteran writes a book (that doesn’t even name Ventura directly) discussing his personal views, the guy dies, and he’s going to continue on with his defamation lawsuit against a widow? 

    Tell me how his sacred principles that need such dogged defense and correction can convince people that taking money from a widow is the right thing to do? 

    Help me understand how taking $50,000 from a widow and young family is the “Manly” thing to do, and that he needs it more than the family does. 

    Ventura is a former Governor! Act like one! There’s nothing positive that he can gain in the court of public opinion by hammering a grieving family. 

    The right thing for him to do at this point- regardless of truth- is to be the bigger man, and walk away.

     Oh, c’mon.

    Well when you get my age, which is Ventura’s age, you realize a man can’t live very long without making many mistakes, some times big mistakes. Unless you wish to walk a man’s life in his moccasins, its wise not to judge too harshly lest you be judged later by your own standards.

    In the scheme of things fudging on Seal status or combat experience is a minor character defect. Not a major one. And likely more than balanced by good deeds and good character traits of which we don’t know.

    What I think is young American men are so estranged from male role models they don’t know a classic American man when they see one.  Most of the old guys and relatives I knew from the WWI and WWII generation were just like Ventura. If you wish to know how your great grand father crossed an ocean or a prairie, fought Indians, raised a family, plowed 40 acres with a mule and didn’t complain —look at Ventura.

    What I read which made the most sense if this incident did happen it should have stayed in the Brotherhood of Seals. Not written about or exploited such to cause a division in the Brotherhood.

    Besides, Ventura can get his day in court and not take a dime from the widow. In fact, I’d be surprised if he takes a dime.

    Still waiting for one of Jesse’s drooling sycophants to explain how he’s a “patriot” when he lied for 30 years about being a SEAL in Vietnam, and being in combat.

    Ventura was, and is, a fraud who was NEVER in Vietnam, NEVER in combat, and definitely NEVER on a SEAL team there.

    The man has no honor, so he tried to steal it from others by pretending to be a combat veteran.

    As I said earlier, he owes all real combat veterans an apology.

    The world desperately needs that kind of guy- but I think that’s a dying breed. I try to be one, but find myself sometimes short of the mark. I mean, I have God, I can suck it up and can “tough it out”, I hate whining, I sacrifice for others. I try to never allow my sense of humor to fade due to circumstances. Sometimes I win. Sometimes I don’t. Now, Ventura, for me…I would agree…his appeal to me and probably countless others is that American Man image. We need that. It’s tough. I don’t know the real Ventura. 

    I- along with most everyone else- is relegated to press clippings and commentary. At this point, I would say if this story is false…Glenn Beck has done more damage to Ventura’s image than any former SEAL could have. 

    But if true- then Ventura is a total scumbag. 

    If we can agree on the classic image of the America Man circa 1940′s, then I would say it is sorely missing. With no indication of it coming back. I feel that nostalgia for that character and grit. 

    But, would a circa-1940s man really sue a widow because he had a tift with the former husband? 

    I think that we both know the answer to that one.

    I’d say what Ventura has allegedly claimed is better settled among the brotherhood of Seals, whom in my understanding have no real problem recognizing pre-Seal UDT as authentic Seals.

    If you have evidence other than hearsay and Internet gossip that Ventura claimed combat experience in Vietnam, then post it. I’d like to see an authentic, verified Ventura quote where he claims combat in Vietnam.

     ”I don’t know the real Ventura.”

    True. OTOH, if my judge of character is correct, I think what you see is what you get with Ventura.

    His story of being read the riot act by the CIA in the basement of the capitol soon after being elected governor of Minn, rings true.

    If it is true, then who is to say how directly confronting the hidden power structure of the US would effect an unsophisticated, common man, who believed in the American system and had taken a governorship by his own grit and force of personality?

    Turn him into a renegade “conspiracy theorist.”?  What would I do? What would you do in a similar situation?

    Ventura didn’t fold. So I balance his defects with his nobler aspects of character. I would hope in a similar situation I could act as well.

    As far as the trial. Why not wait and see what happens. After all he can win in court and not take a dime from the widow. Or he could drop it. Personally, I don’t think the suit is about money and if I read Ventura right, the magnanimous thing to do would be not to take a dime.

    No Jen, you’re wrong:

    http://www.twincities.com/localnews/ci_21428278/jesse-ventura-lawsuit-navy-seal-says-he-decked

    “But in a motion to dismiss two of Ventura’s three
    claims of damage, Kyle’s attorneys include sworn statements from six
    current or former SEAL team members who were there, along with the
    mothers of two dead SEALs who also were at the bar.

    They describe a loutish and rude Ventura who seemed preoccupied
    with talking about himself. But of the lot, only one claims to have
    actually heard Ventura make the comment about “you deserve to lose a
    few” and saw Kyle punch the former governor.

    That SEAL, Jeremiah Dinnell, said that Ventura “was being a jackass” and that his words went too far.

    “That’s when Chris punched him,” Dinnell wrote. “All of us wanted to. Chris was just the first one to pop him.”"

    Kyle and Beck are true dirtbags.

    I’d love to see the right wing gate keeper Beck, say it to Jesse’s face. Beck pushed for the bankster bailout, and is a Zionist assss licker who grovels at their feet. He HATES the truth. Frankly, I’d spit in his face if I got close enough to him.

     The owner of the bar is one of them. He’s a former SEAL and says Kyle is full of shIt.

     Oh really? because he doesn’t believe obvious lies and has the guts to say so?

    He’s got more honor, integrity, compassion and loyalty than all the members of congress put together. Don’t even get me started on the right wing sheeple gate keeper Beck who rips off Alex Jones for most of his material. Then massages it to fit his agenda of deceit.

    Do you know the facts Glen?  I’m a 100% disabled army veteran.  Chris made a huge mistake and its sad he died in the manner he did but to attack Gov Ventura is just sad! Most things he said about Iraq and President Bush is true.  How many more of m brothers and sisters have to die for lie of the American government for warmongers?  (Chris’s kids will be taken of by the VA just like my family).

    Jesse Ventura is a real patriot. He actually brought more damning evidence to light than Ed Snowden did, though I value them both as heros. Do you want to know what happens to REAL PATRIOTS? They are persecuted, harrassed, even KILLED (Hastings)… Thus, at this point in time real patriots can’t stay here in the US. Without the public backing, their truth is poison to the establishment, and they will eventually be killed for telling us anything other than the government LIE. Jesse isn’t afraid. He has faced death, and knows he has NOTHING to fear.

  • The Fall Seeing Eye

    I would GLADLY trust my life and the life of my family to Jesse Ventura, and I would gladly defend his. He has proven himself. He IS NOT LYING. He has seen first hand the absolute corruption of this country, and I cannot in the least fault him for leaving. We should REVERE these people who risk their very lives to tell us, the oblivious masses, what is being cooked up for us and how bad it really is. He is a modern day Paul Revere, and people like me will not forget him, thus he has secured his name in history on the side of THE PEOPLE. Remember that when the shooting starts. 

  • The Fall Seeing Eye

    Chris Kyle was a war profiteer who stepped on the wrong foot. He WAS a good sniper in terms of kills… He was also the originator of a group of subcontractors for the US Govt who are basically deniable mercenaries for the most deadly and covert of jobs, good or bad. Motive does not matter… the PAYCHECK is all that matters. The lives of those affected are NOT a consideration. I happen to be an F-Class long range competition target shooter. With my Savage rifle, I can hit a man sized target, center of mass, at 1500 yards with a .300 Winchester Magnum round, which is not designed to go that far. Give me a Sako TRG .338, a Barrett .416,  or a CheyTac .408 M208 rifle, and I could kill a man at 2000 yards or more just as consistently. What people need to understand is that THIS IS NOT MAGIC. ANYONE can do this, if they are taught what they need to account for and how to calculate the trajectory. It is THAT simple. Chris Kyle just happened to be good at doing that math quickly under stress. THAT’S IT. Yes, it takes good trigger control, but that is NOT THAT HARD TO TEACH. My nephew of 13 years old, whom I taught to shoot big bore, can hit a combat target center of mass at 1000 yards. If HE can do it, then what is so damn amazing about being able to snipe people at that range??? Chris Kyle is no martyr. He had devious motives and caught a bullet in the back for it. Jesse Ventura just happened to be an easy mark to slander in order to inflate his own image. Plain and simple.

    Nonsense. Jesse Ventura is a liar and a fraud. Jesse, the liar, spent years telling people that he was a Navy Seal, while knowing full well that he left the Navy 8 years before his unit, the Underwater Demolition teams were merged with the Seals. He also has alluded to being in combat. He never heard a shot fired in anger anywhere. I am an Infantry Grunt Veteran and he is the worst a male (not a man) can be. He lies about being a combat veteran, thus defaming and dismissing out of hand so many honorable veterans.
