Jesse Ventura Says He's Hiding From U.S. Drones In Mexico. Well, He Needs To Try Harder.
The Smoking Gun ^ | February 7, 2014

Posted on 02/07/2014 11:37:52 AM PST by EveningStar

Confidential to U.S. drone operators:

If you’re looking for Jesse Ventura’s remote Mexican hideaway, it can be found at 23° 30' 57.08" N 109° 28' 41.17" W.

During an appearance Tuesday on CNBC, the former Minnesota governor claimed that he was living “off the grid” in Mexico “so that the drones can’t find me.”

First rule of living off the grid: Don’t go on the grid to tell everyone where your secret off-the-grid compound is.

I wonder if this is just a publicity stunt that Mr. Ventura cooked up to pave a way for his return to professional wrestling.

If you think he’s obviously “too old” in his early 60’s, remember that Abdullah the Butcher is still wrestling part time well into his 70’s.

Well, Jesse has no shortage of self agrandizing ego that’s for sure. What would cause him to think he’s worthy of being terminated by a multi-million dollar missile? I think as far as most folks are concerned Jessie had been off the grid - and his rocker for a long time.....

I don’t dislike this bombastic eccentric, but what is his reason for thinking he is even relevant much less worthy of a missile strike?

Good point. I expect the government would have more trouble locating "George Foreman" than "Jesse Ventura". The guvmnt doesn't do well when they are overwhelmed with data. I suspect that 9 folks of the same family with the same name would confuse the hell out of them.

Yesterday morning a small red plane with lights flashing was circling low above our building and woke me up early. After an hour I looked through my binoculars and it seemed like it only had one wheel down. I asked my wife to call emergency air traffic and report it. As soon as that was done it flew off. We didn’t hear anything more about it.

Later I told my wife - That’s the difference between a Conservative and a Libertarian... a Conservative calls in to report a possible emergency while a Libertarian hides in the bathroom.

Jessy was trained for underwater and not air and land. He is out of his element. He should have said he had a nice apartment in Atlantis.

That’s because as bat shit crazy as he is, he is still orders of magnitude ahead of what passes for Democrat and Repulican candidates.

Jessie Ventura, Mitt Romney, Barack Obama. The least awful of those is easy to pick out and he is chilling out south of the border.

The joke isn't that he's showing concern about our government's growing drone air force.

The joke is that he imagines himself as some top notch conspiracy fighter hiding from a government determined to take him out and he's hiding at 23° 30' 57.08" N 109° 28' 41.17" W.

terminated by a multi-million dollar missile

An ICBM? A Tomahawk XR? Hellfire about 70k, Maverick up to 110k but if they KNOW where he is they can use a cheaper version. I doubt the Body is an HVT in anyone book except the SEALs who don't like him on account of suing Kyle's wife. If it happened, it would only be a couple 5.56. I'd give them the ammo.

Ventura was using a figure of speech. He knows that Uncle Scam has his address. He knows what Uncle Scam's capabilities are. He just doesn't want to live under the blanket of constant surveillance that is being draped on America, land of the free and home of the brave. Is Mordor on the Potomac watching all of Mexico, too? Probably not but who knows.

Who in their right mind wants to be under the watchful eye of this criminal Administration?

Speaking to CNBC on Tuesday from an “undisclosed location” south of the border, Ventura said there was a reason he doesn’t reveal his each and every movement.

“I’m off the grid. I move about with my TV show so that the drones can’t find me and you won’t know exactly where I am,” Ventura said.

According to Ventura, his Ora TV program will continue to broadcast “as long as we have solar power and we can reach the satellite.”

“I view the United States, today, much like East Berlin. And I’m off the grid. I’ve tried for 20 years to warn the country about the Democrats and Republicans, and nobody’s listening,” he said

“I now view the United States from the outside, and I don’t like what I see,” added Ventura, who won Minnesota’s gubernatorial election back in 1998. “You know what the favorite T-shirt was off the grid down here a couple years ago? A picture of [former President] George Bush, and it said weapon of mass destruction. Is that the way we want the United States portrayed throughout the world? I don’t think so.”

Ventura’s remarks on CNBC came only days after he made a similar comment to veteran broadcaster Larry King on the newsman’s own Ora TV production, Politicking.

http://rt.com/usa/jesse-ventura-undisclosed-drones-750/

“I can’t do this show and talk about what I want to talk about in the United States,” Ventura said of ‘Off the Grid.’ “They are locked down up there,” he said, again from an undisclosed location.

Ventura equated his online-only program as being a twenty-first century version of Radio Free Europe, the US-sanctioned network that shared a western take on the news of the world among the people of communist countries after the second World War.

“Remember Radio Free Europe? This is Internet Free America with Jesse Ventura,” he told King. “Broadcasting across the grid, off the grid, back to the United States, Jesse is allowed speak freely without drones hovering over his head and tracking him down,” the ex-governor insisted.

And according to Ventura, his new endeavor is also helping to employ Mexicans who might otherwise attempt to permeate the jobs market in America, much to the chagrin of the perpetually unemployed.

“I’m a job creator,” Ventura said during the CNBC segment on Tuesday. “And I’m not only creating jobs, putting Mexicans to work, I’m stopping them from running across the border now and taking our jobs, because my whole staff said that if I wasn’t down here, and I didn’t have them, they’d be coming up to America, looking for jobs.”
