Jesse Ventura served as Minnesota’s governor from 1999-2003. His win shocked the world, with so many that had become accustomed to seeing people from one of two political parties in American positions of power. When I have been around Jesse he has reminded me so much of my family from Minnesota. He is unlike any other person that I have been around, that has been Governor of a state. He got this anarchistic teenager interested in participating in our republic. Ventura’s dispute with the Kyle estate is now over. As a fan and friend to Ventura, and as a journalist, I watched this case closely over the years, especially after Kyle’s tragic passing. It was settled out of court. Ventura said the settlement money didn’t come from Kyle’s widow or his estate. It really pisses me off that legitimate fake news turned a lot of really good people against each other and I hope that everyone can see that the two parties have settled their differences and put this thing to rest. We are on the same team. It also really bothered me that Clint Eastwood got involved in the propaganda revolving around yet another American who was indoctrinated into thinking that he was fighting on “God’s own team”. The grim truth is that far too many in the establishment have not been fighting to defend the principles of this country in some time. The shining truth is that many of us from many different walks are fighting to restore the principles that this country was founded on in our own ways. It will take many different types of us working together to work out our differences. I am resigned to battle on with the firm belief that we can restore our republic. Jesse Ventura currently hosts a variety news show, airing Fridays on RT, that tackles today’s biggest political stories. Embedded below is the latest episode.
