    Jesse Ventura has won the defamation lawsuit he filed against the widow of Chris Kyle, Navy SEAL and author of American Sniper. Somehow he convinced a jury that his reputation was sullied when Kyle told the world Ventura acted the fool at another SEALs funeral and then got knocked out. Ventura said he was suing the widow and kids because of his reputation, not for the money. So setting aside the grotesquerie that he even won, he should refuse to take the cash. He proved his case, he was vindicated, so he should be the "big man" he claims to...
  • Sarah Palin Slams 'Jackass' Jesse Ventura for 'Shaking Down' Chris Kyle Widow

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | August 2, 2014 | Tony Lee
    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin hammered Jesse Ventura for winning a $2 million defamation lawsuit this week against Chris Kyle's widow. After Kyle's death, Ventura continued with the lawsuit that stemmed from a passage from Kyle's book in which Kyle claimed he knocked out an unnamed Navy SEAL for trashing the troops. During his book tour, Kyle said that was Ventura. But after Kyle was tragically killed in 2013, many felt that Ventura, who has done a lot to damage his own reputation over the years, should have dropped the lawsuit. "Hey tough guy, Jesse Ventura, your feelings were hurt...

    We have been reminded of the one thing we knew with absolute certainty, that Jesse Ventura is a winner. He has been a professional wrestler, a mayor, a radio talk show host, the governor of the state, a television star, a best-selling author and even, for a brief spell, a Harvard professor, although a photo taken at his academic desk showed one Post-it note stuck to a blank computer screen. And now, Jesse Ventura has won again, probably as big a shock as his election win to the state's highest office in November 1998. Jesse Ventura won his defamation case...

    Jesse Ventura, on Tuesday, was awarded a $1.8 million settlement in a defamation lawsuit he filed against slain Navy SEAL and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle. The former Minnesota governor has alleged that Kyle intentionally lied when he claimed that he punched him in a bar after he said the Navy SEALs deserved to “lose a few.” Ventura was asked Wednesday what he plans to do with the nearly $2 million that will come from the Kyle estate on CBS’ “This Morning,” with one of the anchors mentioning that it will be taken from Kyle’s widow, Taya, and two children....

    A Minnesota jury has awarded former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura $1.8 million Tuesday in his lawsuit against the estate of American Sniper author Chris Kyle.

Kyle wrote that he decked a man whom he later identified as Ventura after the man allegedly said the Navy SEALs 'deserve to lose a few.'

    Friday marked the fourth day of jury deliberations in Jesse Ventura's defamation lawsuit against a former Navy SEAL, and the jurors still had no verdict when they were dismissed for the weekend. The jury has logged more than 24 hours of deliberations. It is slated to reconvene at 9 a.m. Monday. The case centers on whether Chris Kyle, a SEAL sniper-turned-author, fabricated a story that he decked the former Minnesota governor after Ventura bad-mouthed SEALs and the war in Iraq. Kyle was shot and killed at a gun range in Texas in 2013, but Ventura continued his suit against Kyle's...

    Defense lawyers in the Jesse Ventura defamation case rolled out a parade of witnesses Wednesday claiming Ventura got punched out in a California bar. That’s the claim in the best-selling war memoir “American Sniper” by the deceased author Chris Kyle. It’s about to be made into a movie. But the bar fight is a claim Ventura says never happened. For the last two days, Navy SEALs have claimed in court that they saw one part or another of the bar fight. Ventura, described in the book as “scruff face,” is accused of shooting off his mouth about the war and...

    The defamation trial for former Gov. Jesse Ventura continues Wednesday with a videotaped deposition of the late author of "American Sniper" Chris Kyle. Ventura claims Kyle defamed him in his autobiography by saying he knocked him down during a barroom incident in 2006 after Ventura allegedly made disparaging comments about Navy SEALs. Kyle referred to the man he punched as "Scruff Face" in the book but acknowledged in later interviews he meant Ventura.

    When a man regarded as the deadliest sniper in U.S. history detailed his kills in a best-selling autobiography, he also included details about a 2006 incident in which he says he punched a guy he called "Scruff Face" -- later identified as former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura. Ventura, a public figure with a tough-guy image, says the fight didn't happen, and he sued author Chris Kyle for defamation. The trial begins Tuesday in federal court in St. Paul, and it will be up to Ventura's attorneys to prove that Kyle's account about that night in a California bar was false...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- With the political relevance of "The Daily Show" and the huge DVD sales (and subsequent hiatus) of "Chappelle's Show," it's easy to forget about that other Comedy Central show, "South Park." But Matt Stone and Trey Parker's crude cartoon began its ninth season last Wednesday -- and it remains the network's most-watched program. It is also, perhaps, still the most manic thing on TV, with entire episodes created just days before they air. With a ripped-from-the-headlines approach, it's the "Law & Order" of comedy. The first episode, "Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow," tackles Hurricane...

    Last week, along with my colleague John Cornyn of Texas, I introduced comprehensive legislation designed to secure America's borders and deal with the fact that more than 10 million people are living illegally in the United States. A lot of people ask me: "Why should we believe this will be any different than other ill-fated immigration 'reforms'?" It is a question that should be asked of any proposal that claims to resolve these issues. The primary reason I believe our bill represents a genuine solution is that it contains tough, overlapping new measures to enforce the law at our borders...

    South Park ^ | 12/17/2003 | Those Whacksters at South Park
    The newest episode of South Park has Kyle's brother Ike being taken away by his Canadian parents, due to a decree by the "new Canadian prime minister". The boys embark on an Oz-like journey across Canada to change the prime minister's mind. I died laughing at the ending. They must have thought the plot line up in under 24 hours.

    NRO ^ | Senator Jon Kyl
    By Senator Jon Kyl “Born in other countries, yet believing you could be happy in this, our laws acknowledge, as they should do, your right to join us in society, conforming, as I doubt not you will do, to our established rules. That these rules shall be [equal] will certainly be the aim of our legislatures." So wrote Thomas Jefferson 202 years ago. His sentiment then holds true today. America should be a welcoming haven for immigrants. But those seeking citizenship must follow our nation's rules. And our governments, both local and federal, have a responsibility to apply immigration laws...
