Product Overview

Jesse Ventura tells it like it is, and this time he tackles our government’s biggest secrets. In this explosive account of wrongful acts and on-going cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people. For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception. For too long, the mainstream press has refused to consider alternate possibilities and to ask the tough questions. Here, Ventura looks closely at the theories that have been presented over the years and separates the fact from the fiction.

In Ventura’s eyes, the murder of Abraham Lincoln and the assassinations of the Kennedys and Martin Luther King, all need to be re-examined. Was Watergate presented honestly, or was the CIA involved? Did the Republican Party set out to purposefully steal two elections on behalf of George W. Bush? Has all the evidence been presented about the 9/11 attacks or is there another angle that the media is afraid to explore? And finally, is the collapse of today’s financial order and the bailout plan by the Federal Reserve the widest-reaching conspiracy ever perpetrated?

From the Publisher
Editors Note The outspoken former Navy SEAL and Minnesota governor takes a look at the gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to its people, shedding light on such events as the recent economic collapse, the 9/11 attacks, the elections of George W. Bush and the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kenney and Martin Luther King, Jr.
Annotation In this companion to his TV show "Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura," the former professional wrestler and Minnesota governor investigates all of the biggest cover-ups in American history, from the assassination of Abraham Lincoln to the events of September 11, 2001. Ventura dismantles the accepted explanations for the assassinations of the Kennedys, Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcolm X, showing how it is either entirely inconceivable (in the case of Robert Kennedy) or extraordinarily unlikely (in the case of MLK) that the killings were the work of a single gunman. Ventura also presents compelling evidence that the Republican party stole the elections of 2000, 2004, and even 1980, when he says that George H.W. Bush negotiated with Iranian terrorists to withhold the release of American hostages until after Jimmy Carter had been defeated. Perhaps most devastating is Ventura's incisive account of 9/11, as he convincingly instigates that the Bush administration was fully aware of the attacks and may have even been complicit in them.
