Sick: Jesse Ventura jokes about Kyle lawsuit victory

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

You would think that after winning his defamation lawsuit against Chris Kyle’s estate, Jesse Ventura would have the good sense to be satisfied and not continue to attack the fallen SEAL’s memory or family. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Instead, he’s hit the media circuit, defending – and failing – how he plans to spend the money that he won from Kyle’s widow.

When asked what he planned to do with the money, Ventura sarcastically replied that he planned to pay his lawyers.

CBS’s Gayle King asked, “He served his country. His wife is a widow. They have two children, a nine-year-old and a seven-year-old. The estate has to pay out a million dollars in fees. What are you going to do with the money?”

“Pay my lawyers,” Ventura replied. “Again, like I said, I didn’t have an insurance company paying the freight for me. I had to pay my own. You know, it’s unfortunate, but the jury rendered that decision. Jesse Ventura did not render how and why the money would be paid. That came from a jury, not from me. So if you’re going to question the money, question the jury. They made that decision. Gov. Jesse Ventura did not.”

Isn’t it a little weird that he speaks in the third person?

Ventura appears to suffer from a distinct lack of self-awareness, as he can’t seem to understand why his reputation may be ruined among he fellow veterans over the lawsuit.

 

“Some suggest that you may have damaged your reputation by pursuing a lawsuit against the widow,” CBS’s Charlie Rose asked Ventura during an interview.

“Well, if seeking the truth damages you, then we live in a pretty sorry world, don’t we? When the truth can hurt you and the truth came out, it never occurred, and that’s all I sought from it. And I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore,” Ventura said.

Is it really Ventura’s search for the truth the reason his reputation has been damaged? Glenn certainly doesn’t think so, and said his reputation has been destroyed among the SEALs because of how the lawsuit is impacting the Kyle family.

Glenn described what it was like Chris Kyle’s funeral:

The one thing you learned, they’re brothers and come hell or high water doesn’t matter how you you feel about them. If one of them falls, they all stand behind the widow and the family. And I’ve never seen anything so powerful as these SEALs all in their uniform standing behind Chris Kyle’s wife as she is struggling to deliver a eulogy. And with military precision and honor as she is breaking down, the SEALs surround her and just quietly slowly put their gloved hand on her back. It was remarkable. And that is what our military men are like. That’s what our SEALs are like. When a brother has fallen, no matter what you thought of him, you do not sue the wife. You comfort the wife. You comfort and aid the children.

Does it sound like Ventura is treating the Kyle family with the same level of respect and honor as the rest of the SEAL community?

Watch the interview below:

  • You’reNoGandhi

    The very effeminate Glenn is whining about the truth? What if Jesse said Glenn is a child molester? Or what if he said that Glenn beats his children and wife black and blue, and he ( Jesse) had to step in a punch-out Glenn? That’s slander if it’s untrue. Right? How’d it feel if the shoe was on the other foot and the very effeminate Glenn got slandered? If such slander is then put in writing making six million in profit for the slanderer, and people actually start believing Glenn is a molester, what do you think it would cost Glenn? Maybe his sponsors would drop him costing Glenn millions.

    Does anybody think it’s right to profit off of lies? The Kyle family has plenty of support. They’ll be fine. And so will the Ventura family. The Ventura family has a real man who’ll stand up and fight for his reputation……. Nothing wrong with that….

    • Crassus

      Horsecrap, Junior. Jesse Ventura was running his fat mouth in a bar and got punched out. The guy who did the punching mentioned the incident in a book. Jesse’s reputation as a tough guy suffered and he went through all kinds of mental agony. ;) So he sues the guy’s widow, lies on the witness stand, and gets a bunch of dumbasses on the jury to believe his lies. Then he cashes in and says he was the wronged party. Drop your drawers and bend over, honey. You’ve got it coming.

      • Cassidy

        I lived in MN. Ventura is a wuss.

      • Flash Man

        Did you not watch this? He had pictures from the next day that showed no marks on him?

        I don’t understand this … its pretty clear that Chris Kyle lied about punching out Jesse Ventura and lied about claiming Ventura wished death on fellow SEALs.

        Why is this so hard for people to understand?

        • Shon Johnson

          You know Chris Kyle lied HOW? Were you there? Did Chris tell you it didn’t happen? Just because a jury was convinced, does not mean it didn’t happen.

        • Watch it

          If someone bashes you in the side of your head with his fist, there will be no marks. If it is a blow or check to the body, no marks will show. I have experienced both, and neither showed.

          • You’reNoGandhi

            You must have been struck by an effeminate like Glenn.

            The chances of a trained killer not leaving a mark is doubtful at best. Boxers have gloved hands, right?, yet they bruise, draw blood, break jawbones, knock out teeth and even kill with gloved hands.

            But, there’s so much more evidence than mark or no mark. And the preponderance of evidence by rational people proved who the liar was in this case.

            Your first statement – Not at all – faulty assumption.

            Second statement – for someone who knows what they are doing – it is not doubtful. You must strike the right spot the right way. Remember, he supposedly knocked JV down – not out cold. That can be done with a rough push – no bruises, no broken teeth, etc.

    • Andrea Curless

      You must have not read Kyle’s book. I have. And you should be ashamed of he last paragraph. Who is to say it did not happen? We don’t have Kyle’s testimony, do we. The buck got to stop somewhere. You talk like the IRS, where they can come after you for $$$ your parent or Grandparent owed from years ago, even though they deceased.

      Real men don’t lie about being on a SEAL team. Real men don’t make up stories about their “secret missions” in Vietnam. Real men don’t lie about being in combat.

      Now that he admits none of those claims are true, he has no reputation left.

      Every SEAL knows the truth of Kyle’s statement, but unfortunately most of them only saw Jesse on his butt — never saw the punch that did it. That’s why the jury said they were impossibly deadlocked and never could manage the unanimous decision required for a judgment. If Kyle’s lawyer hadn’t foolishly agreed to accept an 8 out of 10 verdict, that old fraud Ventura would be back babbling about how the Jews & the CIA were behind the 9-11 attacks, and mumbling to himself..

      This judgment will buy him a lot of tinfoil for his hat.

        lol, you think a bunch of guys with box-cutters pulled off 9/11???
        lmao

    • Something Is Wrong

      I really don’t know enough of the facts on either side to take any sides in this but it is true that continuing to pursue a lawsuit after the person you are suing dies makes you look like a douchebag. As in the majority of situations, I suspect that nobody is really totally innocent or in the right on this. I think both Chris and Jesse are at fault to differing degrees and possibly for different things but all of this could have been avoided. Even if the story is true just as Chris Kyle told it, none of this ever would have been elevated to this point if he hadn’t decided to air his dirty laundry in the first place. Doesn’t excuse Jesse Ventura’s behavior toward Chris’ family but like I said, I think both sides are wrong and at fault here.

      What really irritates me about Glenn is his continuing fake support for veterans. The truth is that he really doesn’t care about veterans… unless they were special operators or physically maimed in some way and are now running for office or something like that. Glenn talks a big talk about serving others and talks a big talk about helping veterans but I have yet to see him acknowledge or actually do anything to help the “non-cool” veterans; the ones who aren’t going to be able to add their own public reputation to his. There are thousands of faceless veterans from all branches with no physically evident wounds who struggle to get through each day, who struggle with employability, and who can barely scrape anything together to take care of their families. Vets care about all other vets; Glenn simply doesn’t. I just wish he’d be honest about it… but then, that would hurt his reputation with his audience. Maybe it’s obvious from my post, but I am a vet. I wasn’t in special operations but that doesn’t change the hell I and my family have been through and the difficulties we still face today. I just don’t like to be used as a tool by somebody who really doesn’t give a crap.

      The best organization I’ve ever seen (and dealt with) in helping veterans with their issues is just about broke. They do so much good when they are able to work, it’s just amazing. Of course you won’t hear about it from Glenn because there’s no SEAL with a book out at the top. It’s some old hippie dude and it’s run out of San Francisco. Doesn’t matter apparently that it actually helps veterans more than just about any other organization out there, Glenn will never pick it up because (and I say this even though I agree with him on a lot) when it comes to supporting veterans, he’s full of it. If anybody wants a solid high quality org to support, look up The Coming Home Project. Most of you won’t though because the vast majority of people don’t care any more than Glenn does.

      Sorry for the rant, it’s just frustrating to watch videos of Glenn talking about veterans.

  • soybomb315

    Glenn has gone so PC-crazy it is not even funny. First Glenn demands Ventura give all the money to charity….Then Glenn says that Ventura was ‘attacking a heroes widow”…Then Glenn says it was a sick joke when in fact there was no joke made by Ventura…

    Change the word “Glenn” to “MSNBC” and it would be the same Alinsky tactics they use all the time.

    Ventura sounded perfectly reasonable. Ventura has a right to defend his name and the jury agreed. Glenn, quit airing your personal feelings about Ventura. He’s doing exactly what you did when you attempted to defend your reputation against Eiland-Hall for advertising you raped and murdered a young girl in 1990.

          Ventura has no reputation left. When he got caught lying about being on a SEAL Team in combat in Vietnam, only he ignorant paid any attention to the old fraud.

          He was never a SEAL,certainly never on a Team anywhere, never set foot in Vietnam (or Laos or Cambodia, for that matter), and certainly never saw combat. His most disgusting lie was when he cancelled a wrestling match supposedly because he was hospitalized for Agent Orange-related illness.

          He may have “hunted man,” as he claims, but only in the leather bars in Manila, since his butt sat in the Philippines while REAL men were dying in Vietnam.

          He had his chance. When the SEALs in RVN were really in the deep stuff they asked for UDT frogmen (like Ventura) to volunteer for SEAL training and assignment. Ventura, of course, kept on playing basketball in the Philippines.

          There’s a reason he’s afraid to go anywhere near any real SEALS anymore. A very wise move on his part, and displaying his usual amount of manliness & bravery.

          He’s a disgrace, and an insult to every brave man who served in combat.

          Now …. what were you saying about “reputation” ?

            Nor do they go and write books on how great a killer they are. Kyle made his fame and money by going out and killing others who never did anything to him.

            He took part in a war that started based on a lie. It was wrong and we shouldn’t of been there. We wouldn’t have all these wounded veterans then.

            The main reason Ventura did this was because he’s desperate for publicity and his career is so far down the toilet that he’s looking for ANY publicity.

          There wouldn’t have been a jury had Ventura not sued. He’s a coward to lay it in their lap as if he had nothing to do with it. What was he doing in a Seal bar at a Seal wake knowing full well how he felt about the war? The fact that he acted first and spoke what he spoke where he spoke it proves he had no conscience long before any settlement was awarded.

            Stfu, plenty of veterans disagree with wars. Jesse enlisted for the Vietnam War, thinking he was doing the right thing, only to find out it was started on a lie. Just because you don’t agree with a war, doesn’t mean you hate the soldiers. He gave Kyle a chance to change his story.

            I understand an insurance company protected the family’s assets. If that’s incorrect, Kyle is the one that endangered his family’s financial stability by not having professional liability insurance, not to mention the fact that the jury believed Kyle lied about Ventura. Based on the jury’s findings, you may be pointing the finger at the wrong person.

            Sounds like you don’t the facts Landree!! The juries finding was not about who lied. It was based on slandering his reputation. Get your facts straight if your going to debate. Chris Kyle did not lie. Unfortunately Ventura had decent lawyers who showed that his reputation was damaged by the story. What a joke!! I’m sure they struggled with that scenario to that’s why it took so long to get a verdict. Unfortunately the law benefits losers every now and again. He’s a loser and so are you losers who side with him. First check the facts!!

      Glenn aside, I fail to see how a single paragraph in a book – one that doesn’t even mention him by name – has caused 1.8 million dollars in damages to him. Lots of people have had far, far nastier things written about them, things that have less credibility, and they just shrug their shoulders and get on with their lives. The guy really is coming across as a bully with an easily bruised ego. People say bad stuff about each other, oh well, move on with life. Don’t bring a lawsuit and drag a family into court like a hurt child. As RuPaul famously says (yes, I am quoting RuPaul), “What other people think of me isn’t any of my damn business.”

        The case seems egregious, but we didn’t hear the testimony. Apparently the jury thought their verdict was reasonable. Good RuPaul quote.

    • CS utk

      I have been following this from the start. Contrary to many fact-less reports, Kyle’s story never wavered and Ventura’s has been all over the map. He started out claiming that Kyle misunderstood what he said, that he really meant “some are going to die, it’s the nature of the work,” not “you deserve to lose a few.” Now, he denies the whole incident!?

      I have no idea what happened in that court, but lets take a few things into account. The only media person Ventura could get to go to bat for him on this (who also affirmed the incident did occur) was Alex Jones. The entire NSW Community is on Kyle’s side, as well as the staff and waitress at McP’s that night.

      Ultimately, it is unacceptable for Ventura to bring this kind of light on the elite brotherhood he is so boastful about being a part of. I can’t imagine what it feels like for him to be blocked out of his SEAL alumni group, but when you walk as far “off the reservation of sanity (SOFREP)” as this guy has gone, what can you expect.

      There is no way the incident did not occur. Are you people kidding?! You think Kyle just made this up out of thin air? Obviously it happened, Ventura is sore about it, and that’s that. Prayers to Taya Kyle and her children. Jesse’s declining popularity had nothing to do with the short paragraph in Kyle’s book…this incident was one symptom in the many events that have led to his decline, and he was clearly looking for something to grab onto as a scapegoat for his own demise.

    Ventura is as much a SEAL as Obama was in uniform atop a Cav horse. He was UDT from 69 -73. The SEALS were not combined with UDT until 1983. In a new paper article published years ago he claimed he served in Vietnam, however in his own biography he did not claim the service. He received the Vietnam Ribbon b/c the war was going on while he was on active duty. Ventura never attempted/attended nor completed the 26 week SEAL training course, which is quite vigorous and tough. He is a hypocrite and a liar. He is a shameless person riding on his former fame as a wrester. Ventura was pounded on the head one too many times while dancing around in a Wrestling Rink. Period.

    So what everyone against Ventura want him to do is just drop a lawsuit against Kyle that cost him millions in lawyer fees to try to defend his name just because Kyle died? He didn’t choose to sue his widow. She automatically became the executor of his estate at his death. She gained all the sympathy, book money, and insurance from his death; as she should. According to the jury, which is how we do things in America, Ventura’s story held better than the “11 seals”. He is owed his reputation to be vindicated. He has not benefitted in the least. He is using the money to pay for his lawyer fees for the years of litigation. He gets nothing. He only wanted his reputation cleared. Too many people are hung up on the “hero” worship of Kyle just because he was a great sniper and killed a bunch of people. People need to back off the vitriol and look at the facts. Ventura has never assailed the widow or her intentions and she will be just fine. His reputation because of Kyle is permanently damaged. Who really won?

    Ventura’s lawsuit started before the death of Chris Kyle. The jury spoke, the jury awarded Ventura the money because of defamation of his name. The widow is not paying this bill, the insurance company is paying this bill. As the wife of a Vietnam vet, who has died recently, if my name was put in the mud, or my husband’s name was defamed, I would have let the jury decide also. just because someone passes on, doesn’t mean that one’s character is put back to where it should have been,. Ventura didn’t have to stop the lawsuit. He won. The widow will not be losing any money, the insurance company will be paying and Ventura does have the right to recover his lost attorney fees end of story.

Jesse Ventura always spoke highly of his time as a soldier and was a nam vet . why does one soldier get all the sympathy here ? Ventura was sueing chris kyle not his widow . he even was said to have asked kyle to retract his story and appoligiize but he wouldnt . Im sorry but i agree with what Ventura did and its a shame cause if we are people who want to say that a 30 yr old marine sucker punching a 60 yr old man is a hero and honorable thats sad . i thank kyle for his service and think his book would have been just a big of hit without the story of beating up a senior citizen to me their is no honor in that .

    Ventura is fried – he did too many steriods and fried his brain.

    “I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore”. Well after bashing the SEALs, attacking a fellow SEAL and then suing his estate, WTH should JV expect? Their rejection of JV is due to HIS actions, not what Kyle wrote about the incident. Ventura denies the incident ever happened, but he was not identified in the book, so why would JV identify with the guy in the book unless it really was him?

    • Something Is Wrong

      I’m not trying to defend anybody here as being right or wrong but Jesse Ventura was connected to the incident verbally by Chris Kyle after the book came out and on very publicly broadcasted media. If the situation in the book is the same as the situation verbally related by Chris Kyle, then I would say that’s a pretty good reason for Jesse Ventura to make that connection. This isn’t a case of “I heard from somebody that Chris Kyle was talking about Jesse Ventura”, it’s a case of “I heard on the radio when Chris Kyle said he was talking about Jesse Ventura”. Totally different story.

      • Watch it

        That may well be, but JV still has the rest of the blame on himself that he “can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore”. He is the one who was bashing and trashing the SEALs.

          I’m not disputing that he has largely dug his own grave, it just sounded like you had a fundamental misunderstanding of the situation. I personally think both sides are to blame. Jesse Ventura went way overboard and took this too far but Chris Kyle never had to even bring it up at all in the first place or put it in his book at all. This is a perfect example of something that he should have allowed to roll off his back and just let it be. He had no personal relationship with Jesse Ventura and even knocked him on his butt (depending on whose story you believe) as retaliation for the remark (I’d even argue that he over-reacted there as well). The matter was solved and over and done with; there was no reason to take it to the public in either written or verbal format. Yeah, I don’t like hornets massing and stinging the crap out of somebody but you also don’t go throw rocks at the nest after you get stung once. Jesse stung him first, he smashed the hornet, but then he went and threw rocks at the nest. It’s a bad situation all around and I think its idiotic that so many people think they have to take a “side”.

    Jesse Ventura has really hurt himself with me over his treatment of Chris Kyle and his family. A truly big man would have disagreed publicly over what was said (after all, it’s one man’s word against the other’s when it comes down to it), but he would have left the grieving family alone. I won’t be able to hear Ventura’s name now without thinking of how he went after a fellow Navy Seal’s widow, and it will affect how much I listen to him and his.

  • Bryant Hill

    I listened to the clip and have to side a lot more with Ventura. I understand what hardship could come from this settlement of over a million dollars being paid out to Ventura by Kyle’s wife.

    Ventura did say that he did not have his lawyer bills while he was suffering both physiologically and financially, but Kyle did have his lawyer fees paid. Understanding this from past experience, I would be less inclined to just “let this thing go” and not pursue back payment for my losses.

    I suppose that makes me a selfish and unfit person to some people as well.

    • Tevis T

      I agree. I had not opinion until this all hit the news two days ago and I can see Ventura’s point of view. I think it’s a matter between two parties and everyone else needs to butt out of it.

    I think Jesse Ventura has been brain damaged for years and maybe he can’t help destroying is reputation further than it already was.

    I no longer care what people think if only they will think! exactly what heroic act did Chris Kyle do? Killing men at great distance. men who likely never saw him. men who presented no reasonable immediate threat. is that heroic? how so? exactly how heroic was it? Amazing skill without argument but how much courage does it take?

    • Ferrari fan

      takes a lot of courage cuz if you miss, they come after you. yes, it’s not the same as fighting in the streets like infantry, but there IS risk in sniping.

  • Robert Mission

    Landree is aware of the fixed court ruling! Which was explained by (Ex-roommate of Kyle) Retired Navy Seal Benjamin Smith who was in court being in total disbelief with the judge and attorneys stating falsehoods. And so Landree is just gleefully antagonizing all patriots and humanitarians here purely for his pathetic sadistic immoral jollies.

  • Anonymous

    Here’s my understanding.
    Ventura sued because he thought he would earn money. He wouldn’t have sued unless the book did well.
    The jury didn’t believe him enough, that he hurt enough to make money.

    So they compromised and made the widow pay his lawyer fees.

    If they truly believed him, he would have come out on top.

    Breaking even tells me they weren’t convinced of either side.

    The tragedy here is that this isn’t how the law works. Ventura had to prove that the guy meant to damage him by knowingly telling a lie. And I will never be convinced that actually happened here.

    I will remain convinced this is just a courtroom compromise to end the case.

    I’m considering buying the book to support my belief.

  • Lori

    People, I believe the ‘commentator’s’ are getting lost. We do not need to speak to jesses’ defenders. Why? Because they know NOT of what they speak! Chris DID NOT slander anyone in ‘American Sniper’! *Note to all; GREAT BOOK! An American Hero, in his own words, on the triumphs and tribulations of war! A must read. I believe anyone HONEST enough to read the mans words will see the truth of the ‘true grit’, and selflessness of Chris one of MANY of Our true Navy Seal Hero’s! The ‘defenders of jesse’ (purposely type this name in lower case throughout…not a typo) haven’t a clue that Chris is the “Worlds Best Sniper’ ever recorder in American history! They obviously have no clue what is in the book! Moment of truth = Chris tells of a personal experience! Chris never wrote the name of the person he had said experience with! Chris cannot ‘slander’…’damage a mans reputation’…if he NEVER types the 2nd mans name! Hello Common Sense! *Important = ‘jurors’ in America are very scary nowadays! Recall unexplainable awards to selfish greedy ‘get something for nothing’ folks in recent years…example; lady spills coffee ON HERSELF, that she PUT IN HER OWN LAP…JURY AWARDS (?) 2MILLION DOLLARS!! ‘Make McDonald’s pay’!! I do pray I never have to go before a ‘jury of my peers’! Terrifying. I would insist on an IQ test for all. A History and Current Events quiz etc. Mrs Kyle, I pray Our Lord give you the strength to forgive ‘the truly ignorant’ and just pure evil citizens of our country! I personally thank you Mam and your children for ‘giving’ your terrific American Hero to us! Please know all Americans with a Spirit are truly indebted to Chris, yourself, and the rest of Chris’ family! Bless you Mrs Kyle!

    Ventura is a 911 truther with a history of badmouthing the military. What would make anyone think he changed his tone. Also as a public figure he had the prove malice. From what I have read about the testimony it was not proven and either the jury received bad instructions from the judge or did not understand it. I think Taya and the family will win an appeal

  • Forest Blankenship

    Home court jury of ten Gophers ignored the eyewitness testimony of 11 witnesses Landree. Blue state corruption at it’s finest. On a happier note Chris Kyle co-wrote this song with a Marine he met over in Iraq. Scott (Scooter) Brown performed this acoustically at the Dallas funeral. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQ9J7MxCT9o

    “who is going to come after me next…”

    Sounds like an admission that Chris Kyle came / went after him.

    Read the Star Tribune article entitled, “Memos detail million-dollar Ventura drama”. It sounds to me like it should’ve been a mistrial with all the notes between the Judge and jury trying to get an unanimous vote, which they didn’t. According to the article, the lawyers didn’t want a second trial which would’ve cost more money, but you know you have an empty chair of a dead person that can’t defend himself.

    Ventura has always been a punk! He has been a failure in all he has ever attempted to do. Even slime like him gets lucky every once in a while. Maybe he will go trash an church or take candy from a baby. Im ashamed to call him American. I hope he rots in hell like the white trash that he is.

  • Brian D. Olofson

    If you think jesse is a scumbag, that means you’re defending a liar, and where I was raised, nothing is more repugnant than a liar or a theif, a dishonest person. I’m sorry that Kyle died before the suit could be completed, but the lies he told about Jesse were pretty serious lies. He told people that he wished that some of our SEALS would die in action. The punch in the face thing was far from the thing that had Ventura upset, that was just icing on the proverbial cake. Lies like these already did a lot of damage to his name inside of a very close knit community, and he has every damn right to seek the truth.

    Also, lets stop acting like the Kyle family is going to be destitute. They had over 5 million bucks, I think they can make it.

    You people are letting your emotions get in the way of logic. Stop it, that’s what liberals do that leads them to make stupid and dangerous freedom destroying decisions. Think about it, you hate to admit it but you know I’m right. Anytime you’re supporting a liar after it’s been proven that he’s a liar, you’re probably on the wrong side of the argument.

    • OvidiuGOA

      they support obama and he is a proven liar, why not a lying marine

    Ventura is “NOT” a man of honor….saying he is a man is stretching it a bit. The money he has been awarded will come from the sell of Kyles book, the procedes of which we designated primarily to aide veterans in need…..Ventura will be stealing from veterans…I strongly recommend he leave this country or spend his life looking over his shoulder!…..If he is a seal as he says, he will know the truth in what I am saying!

  • Scott Hoenshell

    Here is my take as a vet. Now I didn’t read the comment that Kyle made in his book, but it doesn’t matter. If Kyle was wrong and was still alive then the lawsuit went through then fine. However, he was killed by a vet that he was trying to help. The family is in pain, if Ventura was concerned with his reputation he could have made a statement on the record where he said this is false or defamatory ( Kyle’s statement) however I will drop this for the sake of the family. Going after things on principal stops at a point everyone knows that. Going after a widow after her husband is killed to me is wrong. If you have an issue you with your brother then the issue gets buried with him when he passes on.

  • Pocahontas

    Ventura is purposefully acting like a victim to further his agenda of a damaged reputation. He feeds on that, literally, because this is not the first time. How sad.

    Born: James George Janos changed his name to Jesse Ventura

    Military: Dec 1969 – 1975; NO COMBAT DUTY, assigned to Subic Bay, Philippines.He attended UDT training but never went on to the 26 week Seal course. Ventura was on an Underwater Demolition Team when he was in the Navy which were merged with the Navy SEALs in 1983, 8 years after Ventura left the Navy.

    1975 began wrestling. His career ended in 1984 due to blood clots – which he attributed to Agent Orange FROM HIS SERVICE IN VIETNAM! (Must have been blowin in the wind from Nam to the Philippines)

    1991 Ventura feeling duped out of some royalties, sued Titan Sports for fraud, misappropriation of publicity rights and compensation and the jury gave awarded him $801,333

    1999 Playboy magazine interview, he declared organized religion “a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers.”

    January 2011, Ventura files a lawsuit against the Transportation Security Administration for being subjected to pat-downs. The case was dismissed, and true to form, Ventura lashed out with claims about secret rulings, a media blackout, and that America had become “fascist” and says he’ll “never stand for the National Anthem again”.

    December 2011, Ventura threatens TMZ with a lawsuit for stating Ventura pulled over in
    L.A. for a driving violation.

  • Robert Sta-Ana

    I have done my research throughout. I do carry a bias because I am a military brat and proud. In my honest opinion, Kyle had every right to slug Ventura provided that Ventura said those comments. Despite my animosity towards Ventura for this class less move. I can confirm that Fmr. Governor Ventura was a classified as a Navy SEAL because of the UDT teams becoming the modern day SEAL. Other sources may confirm or deny this. (http://navyseals.com/ns-overview/notable-seals/jesse-ventura/) however, I still question his character and guts. He is suing Chris Kyle, may he rest in peace. The suit just happened to carry over onto the Estate of Taya Kyle. It is heartbreaking to already lose a valuable hero to this nation. It is sickening to watch the turn of events following this hero’s death. My heart goes out to his family. “The only easy day was yesterday.”

  • Robert Sta-Ana

    I’ll say my last piece. I believe that Ventura is using the Suit as a publicity stunt. He was a WWE wrestler, so he is great at acting. I don’t think there would be anything stopping him from possibly telling another tall tale… But that’s just me.

  • Anonymous

    Something is just coming over the news momentarily. Fox just announced something about Kyle’s family winning some sort of victory over Ventura, more after the commercial.

    Might be that the judge threw out the monetary amount. The jury’s amount is strictly advisory, and he could theoretically give Ventura a dollar and tell him to go pound sand.

    If so, Jesse will blame the CIA, or the Freemasons, or Mossad … or the Jew bankers … or the reptilian alien shapeshifters who run the world.

    Ventura was NEVER named in the book, he just assumed it was about him which then logically means there must be truth to the story. Ventura recogognized the events in the book so it must have really happened! Ventura is a disgrace to the Navy SEALS who served with honor! This is why he can never ever go to another Navy SEAL function because he turned on wha wast at one time his brotherhood.

    Because Glen Beck doesn’t like Ventura doesn’t mitigate the fact Ventura was damaged. What he does with the money is his own business. I like Glen, a lot, but he does tend to get overemotional. With Glen, once he makes up his mind on someone…it rarely changes…opposite of what he preaches. I live in Minnesota. I did not vote for Ventura when he won the governorship. I would have if he ran for re-election. He may be subtle as a “punch in the face”, but he’s an honest person.

      The question is —

      He did none of those things. He sat out the war as the Supply Clerk (Storekeeper 3rd class) for a UDT unit in the Philippines. His military record was made public and is available online.

      He is a piece of sh** who is a disgrace to the uniform, and an insult to combat vets. He owes all REAL combat veterans an apology.

    JV was never a SEAL nor was he in Vietnam, He was UDT Underwater Demolitions team , WHILE STILL A BADASS UNIT (frogman) they are not SEALs it took additional training to be on a SEAL TEAM training that JV didn’t do.
    JV was not in Vietnam even though he likes to tell people that he was he was stationed in the PI on a UDT team.
    Look it up.

    If it happened or not (I think it did) fact is it should have been handled and dropped on the team level not brought to court or continued after C.K. died, you don’t sue a mans widow no matter what team unit or branch you are in, just class less.

        He sued the estate of Kyle which means no matter how he spins it it effects the family.
        I for one don’t think that it was a lie, I think that like all bar fights everyone saw something but being drunk and time no one has the same memory.
        The fight doesn’t change the fact that JV wasn’t a SEAL he was UDT, he wasn’t in combat but seems to want everyone to believe that he was, I liked JV until this, now if he refused the money or donated it to wounded warriors or some other veterans group I might change my opinion.
