Sick: Jesse Ventura jokes about Kyle lawsuit victory

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?

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
