In light of the alleged “suicides” of prominent people who have gone up against the establishment in recent years, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, who has been trailblazing across establishment media in recent weeks exposing the 9/11 cover-up, firmly stated on the Alex Jones Show that he would never commit suicide.
Ventura has been all over television and talk radio recently talking about his new book, American Conspiracies, and in doing so has educated millions of people about issues sensitive to those in power.
Host Alex Jones highlighted the fact that Ventura’s co-author Dick Russell interviewed many people in the course of researching the JFK assassination, several of whom later died suspiciously.
He also mentioned the case of the DC Madam, Jeane Palfrey, who told the Alex Jones Show that she would never commit suicide less than two months before she allegedly killed herself.
“No I’m not planning to commit suicide,” Palfrey told The Alex Jones Show on her last appearance in March 2008, “I’m planning on going into court and defending myself vigorously and exposing the government,” she said. Palfrey was found dead on May 1st.
Jones also cited the example of award-winning investigative journalist Gary Webb, the man who exposed CIA drug dealing, who authorities claim shot himself in the head twice. Prior to the incident, Webb had talked about how he had caught men breaking into his house.
“The only way you can shoot yourself twice in the head is if you missed with the first one,” said Ventura.
Ventura then went on record to say that he would never commit suicide.
“I’ll say on the record absolutely, Jesse Ventura will never ever commit suicide,” the former Governor stated.
Responding the the massive demonization and smearing of 9/11 truth activists as dangerous extremists and even terrorists by the establishment media, Ventura pointed to another example of this chilling effect with the recent Huffington Post censorship of his article on 9/11.
“Email the Huffington Post and demand to know why Jesse Ventura was censored on the Huffington Post,” Ventura challenged, adding, “Let’s go on the offense and stick it to them”.
Host Alex Jones challenged listeners to get Ventura’s article and circulate it to make sure the issue gets even more attention.

“I’ll tell you this, I won’t ever write for them again,” stated Ventura.
During his appearance on the show, Ventura emphasized his satisfaction at the fact that he was “beating the crap out of Karl Rove’s book” on the best seller charts.
“That’s the guy I want to beat, I want this book to beat Karl Rove,” said Ventura, adding that Rove’s book is attempting to rewrite history.
“Maybe this country is starting to wake up, maybe people are starting to finally get frustrated enough with the media that we have and the status quo,” said Ventura, adding that he didn’t agree with every aspect of the Tea Party but was glad it was out there stirring things up.
Ventura also revealed that his popular TruTv series, Conspiracy Theory, had been picked up for a second series. Eight to ten episodes will be produced for the second run, with filming beginning in summer and the show airing later this year or in early 2010. Ventura said he was sure Alex Jones would also have a role in the second season.
The former Governor also discussed his role in a secretive upcoming Wachowski brothers film about the Iraq war from a perspective 100 years in the future.
Ventura called the experience, “The most bizarre movie shoot I’ve ever been on in my life, I have no idea what the end result of this movie will be.”
Ventura said he was dressed up to look something like John Travolta in Battlefield Earth and told to rant about Bush, Cheney and the Iraq war. Ventura said he didn’t have a clue what the scope of the film was about because there was no script.
“They allowed me to just vent,” said Ventura, “I’m going to be very very interested I can’t wait to see what in the hell this movie’s about,” he added, pointing out that Arianna Huffington and Salman Rushdie were also involved in filming.
