Ventura's deposition in suit against 'American Sniper' author reveals he never read the book
Pioneer Press ^ | 8-6-13 | David Hanners

Posted on 08/07/2013 4:50:52 AM PDT by TurboZamboni

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura couldn't enumerate just how a Navy SEAL sniper's book defamed him, but he said he'd had a hard time finding work since the book came out.

He also said his main complaint about it -- that the late Chris Kyle's tale that he decked Ventura for badmouthing SEALs was untrue -- left him worrying if people think he's a traitor.

"Every day of my life, I walk around looking over my shoulder now, wondering who believes that and who doesn't," Ventura said in response to a question from Kyle's lawyer, John Borger.

The Streisand Effect. No one would have ever heard of the book if he had not given it nationwide publicity by filing the lawsuit.

Blame the Obamaconomy.

I thought crossdressers were supposed to have an easier shot at getting hired these days.

"When asked how the book had damaged him, he said job offers dried up after its publication. "I never had to really go out seeking anything until very recently," he said. "Usually, it came to me. But within the last year, they ain't been coming."

Ya', well that happens to all has-beens, Ventura. You think going after Chris Kyle's widow will enhance your resume' and improve your prospects? Don't bother making application to outfits in Texas.

No no, fool. That’s Ventura on the RIGHT. Chyna (on the left) is of dubious gender, but I’ve heard there’s a sex tape with her in it.

I KNOW you are a traitor jesse... you are suing the wife of a dead American hero and his children so that you can redeem some worthless vision that you have of yourself. I wish that Hulk had taken his pythons and squeezed the very life out of your sorry ass. I hope one day to read that a Navy Seal brings justice upon you.

When he ran for governor, ha was saying some intelligent sounding things, such as: “you should be able to wake up in the morning and not notice the government.”

I love it, because the minute you wake up and use the government mandated, low capacity toilet, you notice the government.

i have lost all respect (well there has not been a lot since the 9/11 conspiracy nuttiness) for Ventura. he has now destroyed one of my fav fils and fav scenes with him ...predator...

how he can do this to the wife of a hero who was murdered is beyond me. i assume the seal community is a close knit one, i cant imagine they are happy either.

by co-incidence yesterday they had sons of guns with Chris Kyle. a more down to earth honest guy i dont think you could meet...it was sad to think of the loss....

As a former SEAL he gets some respect. But his recent actions, the truther %#$@! and this lawsuit in particular are making me lose all respect for him.

Punching Out Scruff Face

"I heard Ventura say that we shouldn't be over in Iraq, doing what we were doing," he said. "And then he said that the SEALs deserved to lose some guys because of what we were doing.

"That's when Chris punched him. All of us wanted to. Chris was just the first one to pop him."

Jesse sounded conservative when he ran for governor. He asked why MN had so many gold plated state employees and gold plated office buildings.

Then, about six months after he was elected, a relay in his feeble brain burned through and he threatened to kill a reporter for the local paper.

MN voters knew then they'd made a mistake.

I don’t see where this case goes to trail. Apparently there are Navy Seals that were present that will testify to the incident. If it goes to trail, the best he will get is a win with $1 reward.

Traitor? Nah.

Ego-maniacal, narcissistic jackass, pretty much.

But then again, given his background and copious amounts of visual and audio evidence, truth would easily make an absolute defense.

Correction. If Ventura had not filed the lawsuit no one would have known that Ventura had any connection to the book. Ventura is not mentioned by name anywhere in the book.

One more time, folks. James George Janos (aka “Jesse Ventura”) was NOT a Navy SEAL. He was in the Underwater Demolition Teams. At the time of his service, there were two separate missions for UDT and SEAL operators: (1) UDTs were responsible for operations up to the surf line; (2) SEALs were responsible from the surf line to inland. In 1983, the USN combined both jobs into SEAL teams.

Jesse Ventura never was in Vietnam. The closest he got was a Philippine cat house when his detachment was deployed there (Philippines, that is).

Taya Kyle is a class act and Jesse Ventura is a prick. Jesse needs to wake up and smell the coffee because after this gets done he’s not only going to be ridiculed, he is going to lose every little bit of self respect that he had left. Jesse will be lower than snake faeces.
