With an eye on 2012 Vice-Presidentship, Jesse Ventura makes explosive statements on 9/11, Obama
International Business Times ^ | April 5, 2011 | Staff

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, who has revealed plans to run as Vice President with Ron Paul in 2012, is making his presence felt with news-making interviews and explosive statements on 9/11 attacks, President Barack Obama and President-hopeful Michele Bachmann.

The former governor-turned-conspiracy theorist, who is currently promoting his book '63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read', said that he would run for Vice President if Ron Paul ran as an Independent.

On ABC's Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos, Ventura made light the idea of Michele Bachmann, often identified as the "un-Palin", running for President.

"You've got a couple of candidates from your state, Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty," Stephanopoulos observed before asking Ventura, "Could she be President?"

"Not with my vote, I'll tell you that," Ventura asserted.

On CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, the Vice-President hopeful when questioned on the claims linking President Barack Obama to the CIA, he retorted, "Can you say he's not?"

Making another controversial statement, Ventura claimed that Dick Cheney not only knew of the September 11 attacks but also allowed it to happen to further the Middle East agenda.

"I believe Dick Cheney knew it," said Ventura.

"They allowed it to happen to further their agenda in the Middle East," he added

We need someone a lot smarter than Jesse. He’s got the big mouth, but not much on top.

Everyone always talks about Cheney “furthering his plans” in the middle east.

What plans? What money? What oil?

The Cheneys made I think 7 million dollars his last year in the white house. That’s a lot for the avg person, but not as far as WH alumni go. He gave almost half of it away to charity and where a lot of it came from his wife’s book. Is he a tycoon now? No, he has a severe heart condition and probably is spending his days with his family.

Who became a tycoon after the WH? The people I know who really kept making money by making deals are the Clintons and Gores in fantastic ways. Gore with his carbon credit scheming and google and apple board involvements make him multimultirich.

I may not know a lot about the Cheneys, but evil Dick and his Halliburton machine just don’t add up in logic.

It never ceases to amaze me what kind of lunatics people will willingly, ~knowingly~ vote for.

[do the SEALS still acknowledge Ventura as ‘one of their own’?]

More of this loser conspiracy kook making stuff up. How in the world can the VP of a candidate be out running his mouth when there isn't any evidence Paul is running. This is ridiculous. He and Sheen should just stick to their Truther routine. It is funnier.

There is no Constitutional requirement that the President has to be sane, Jesse, but it’s a good idea.

I doubt that Ventura is buying into the specific Democrat conspiracy theories such as Halliburton and personal enrichment. Ventura probably believes conspiracy theories involving PNAC.

That anyone would make plans to run as “vice president” is laughable.

This election cycle gets curiouser and curiouser!

The more it does, the more it favors Odumbo who already begins with a huge media advantage. Look for the fifth column to continue pushing the lunacy opposition so they can lump in Republicans as extremists.

“He served a full four years too. Unlike a certain someone.”

Do you honestly think Sarah Palin would have done as much good for the country if she’d remained Governor of Alaska? Instead she took the lemons she was handed (frivolous lawsuits) and made some delicious lemonade.

I’m convinced the same brilliant strategic thinking will lead to her winning the Presidency.

Palin ‘12!!!

“Ron Paul is looking to be the next Ross Perot?”

It sure looks that way. SOB. I saw him on one of the shows last week and he was coyly smiling, saying he’s “thinking about it”.

Just what we DON’T need - this election will be difficult as it is, to beat BHO. If Paul runs, we can forget it and just pray that the BC/SSN scam grows big enough for Hillary to get the nomination. Because the Dems will win if we get saddled with a loser third party/Paul.

If he were a true patriot, he’d sit out ‘12 because, as Trump said at CPAC, he doesn’t have a prayer. But he would sure do irreparable damage.

Alice for President? We could do worse. Well, we already have.

He’s certainly Conservative enough, not counting the makeup and costumes, of course.

I can see him now. No one would be able to stand up to “The Look©,” so the House and Senate would be putty in his hands.

LOL

Let’s go for a Generation Landslide....:)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWpODbMCRvU

Please clean your plate dear the Lord above can see ya
Don’t you know people are starving in Korea
Alcohol and razor blades and boys into needles
Kindergarten people, they used ‘em they need ‘em
The over indulgent machines were their children
And there wasn’t a way down on earth here to cool ‘em
Cos they look just like humans at Kresge’s and Woolworths
But decadent brains were at work to destroy
Brats in battalions were ruling the streets and
Generation landslide, close the gap between them
And I laughed to myself at the men and the ladies
Who never conceived those billion dollar babies
La da da da daa
Militant mothers hiding in the basement
Using pots and pans as their shields and their helmets
Molotov milk bottles heaved from pink highchairs
While mothers’ lib burns birth certificate papers
And dad gets his allowance from his sonny the dealer
Who’s public to the world but involved in high finance
Sister’s out til five, doing banker son’s hours
But she owns a Maserati that’s a gift from his father
Stop at full speed, at 100 miles per hour
The Colgate invisible shield finally got ‘em
And I laughed to myself at the men and the ladies
Who never conceived those billion dollar babies
La da da da daa
No one gives an oink about prom night or football
Cos just getting home from school safe is a gamble and a blessing
Girlsies play with girlsies and boysies with boysies
Bored with one another, like old broken Christmas toysies
Kids are all hot and their parents are so noisy
And I laughed to myself at the men and the ladies
Who never conceived those billion dollar babies

[FYI, he *still* expresses his disgust for hippies and boasts that his band “drove the stake through the heart of the love generation”]

No, I’m working the FReepathon, talking to someone in FReepmail and someone else in my own email, and generally going out of my mind trying to keep up with my pings at the same time.

But I may have fainted in fear at “The Look©,” I’m not sure at this point.

This is going to horrify you, but I bet Vincent cleans up real nice. He would look presidential in a nice, unbloodied suit and red power tie, sitting behind the desk in the oval office. I would vote for that.

Don't torture the heretic! I'm leaving! I'm leaving.
