American’s Journey

FACT
CHECK 2: Jesse Ventura on AlJazeera w/ Riz Khan

It may be time not to switch your TV off
– just switch the channel from Fox etc… to AlJazeera – or try some of the
links on the left side of this blog. Say what you want – but get ready
for an interview that is simply impossible to see on Corporamerikan
"news" shows.

I wonder how Thom Hartmann*, Rhandi Rhodes, Glenn "shoot him in the head" Beck, Rush,
Levin, Ingraham, Boortz, Hannity, Savage, Huffington Post
all
of them – I wonder how they will show their faces in public as quality
programs such as this become the norm? This single episode belies the diluted impotent nature
of their Corporamerikan propascamda shows for the slanted
lies-via-omission circus acts they really are.

Here’s
a snippet from the purblind Huffington Post – click red lettering above
to see page:
" Editor’s Note: The
Huffington Post’s editorial policy, laid out in our blogger guidelines,
prohibits the promotion and promulgation of conspiracy theories —
including those about 9/11. As such, we have removed this post.
"

Now – let’s see how it is supposed to be
done..

The first video from
AlJazeera begins with a refreshingly fair presentation of the subject
matter- Jesse Ventura’s book: "American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and
More Dirty Lies that the Government Tells Us." A respectful
interview commences with well-reasoned questions – allowing Jesse
Ventura the time required to provide detailed answers to challenging
questions.

A questioner asks if Jesse Ventura may be doing these
interviews more for personal financial gain vs. patriotic reasons – or
if possibly he knows more than he is talking about since he held elected
positions with an implication that perhaps he has information he cannot
divulge publicly that is compelling him to "go public."

Jesse
quotes Thomas Jefferson saying "Dissent is the highest form of
patriotism
" as he defends his exercise of duty as an American
citizen in holding his government accountable – disregarding the
opprobrium the fake Corporamerikan propascamda media goons attempt to
slime upon him – all for simply asking questions.

The actual
Thomas Jefferson quote, however, seems to be:
The spirit of resistance to government is so
valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive.
It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be
exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then
.” There
are claims that the wording Jesse uses is misattributed
to Thomas Jefferson.

I’d hate to see the reaction in Amerika if
Jesse used the verbatim quote since the word rebellion might place him on a "do not fly" list.
However – without going to Jefferson’s writings I am still relying on
the internet for these "facts." Regardless, if not to the exact letter
of Jefferson – Jesse’s paraphrase certainly captures the spirit of Jefferson’s words.

To
the question about Jesse having motives other than patriotism … well
you have to listen to his answer to that one. You may agree such
criticisms are almost laughable after you hear his answer.

But
perhaps this caller didn’t really mean it that way. Jesse Ventura did a
good job answering. I wonder if he was taken off-guard by an interview
program that really was "fair and balanced" as demonstrated by their
actions rather than tin-hollow words a la Faux news? I wonder if he may
still be extra-vigilant answering questions since most interviewers he
faces in the Corporamerikan propascamda media outlets greet him with
hostility, insults, ridicule, theatrics and "deer-in-the-headlights"
blank stares when he asks how WTC7 fell the way it did?

In this second
video segment Jesse Ventura mentions that the CIA is active within the
borders of the United States despite the conflict such activity presents
vis a vis their charter – where it is illegal for them to operate
within the United States. Hmmm – here’s a recent incident that comes to
mind that makes me think he’s telling the truth:

Here is a
snippet from an article to get you started on your own research – see
entire article BY CLICKING HERE – make up your own mind.

"
Last week’s breakin at Senator Mary
Landrieu’s office in the New Orleans Federal Building was more than it
seemed, much more. All of the 4 arrested had been trained by the CIA
and, possibly, Israel. One arrested, Stan Dai, is listed as an
Operations Officer of the Department of Defense Irregular Warfare
Program and a known expert and lecturer on, not only surveillance but
explosives training, assassinations and “false flag operations.” If you
wanted a plane to crash, an enemy to get sick and die or a building to
blow up, Dai would be the man to know how to make it happen. Problem is,
his skills were being used as part of a criminal conspiracy inside the
United States against members of our own government.
"

Another question to Jesse Ventura from
audience member: Time=7:38

"Many documentaries support the belief that 9/11 was an inside
job. However one becomes skeptical because the U.S. government
can’t kill it’s own people.
"

Jesse brings up the Gulf of
Tonkin incident – good point. Which reminds me of another incident from
June 8, 1967 that gives credence to doubters of the honesty and
good-will of the United States government when it comes to the
well-being of its service members. In this case Americans were killed
by non-American forces.


U.S.S. Liberty Memorial Site
– Remember the Liberty

From the site (click link below
picture for more):
" Despite a
near-universal consensus that the Israeli attack was made with full
knowledge that USS Liberty was a US Navy ship, the Johnson
administration began an immediate cover-up of this fact. Though
administration officers continued individually to characterize the
attack as deliberate, the Johnson administration never sought the
prosecution of the guilty parties or otherwise attempted to seek justice
for the victims. They concealed and altered evidence in their effort to
downplay the attack. Though they never formally accepted the Israeli
explanation that it was an accident, they never pressed for a full
investigation either. They simply allowed those responsible literally to
get away with murder
."

One wonders why, if the United
States government is so very concerned with the lives of our soldiers,
sailors, airmen, and marines that this incident remains without closure?



See
time=0:35 in this video where Ron Paul disputes Branch assertions that
it is okay for them to assassinate their own citizens:

Murder
Incorporated

My hat
is off to Riz Khan. I wonder if we can hire Riz Khan to give Larry
King, Wolf Blitzer, Geraldo, Bill O. and the rest of them listed above
training in journalism, critical thinking, manners or good listening
skills? Bad idea – maybe just hire Riz Khan period. Or is that the
problem – Corporamerikan Propascamda media mouthpieces are doing
precisely their jobs – their masters’ bidding designed – not to find
truth – but to spread fear. To further agendas rather than try to get
answers and truth necessary for an informed electorate. To protect
their jobs by NOT reporting the truth, the whole truth and nothing but
the truth.

*UPDATE
MARCH 15, 2010 Thom Hartmann has earned back respect – he had Jesse
Ventura on his show today to discuss his book "American Conspiracies"
– perhaps I don’t understand completely the pressure radio hosts are
under. Thanks Thom Hartmann for doing what you can to get the word out.
I’m still piqued that you didn’t give me more time to rebut you on
Charlottesville, VA radio when you were speaking about your book on the
Boston Tea Party when I asked why you are not speaking out more about
Cass Sunstein’s attacks on free speech. But thank you again for having
Jesse on and making time for some discussion on the topic as a follow up
– and as time goes on I’ll keep listening to your show providing your
freedom of speech is not infringed.
