Ventura book mentions CIA visit when governor and proposes a non-violent revolution to get rid of Democrats and Republicans.  

Is it possible large corporate publishers would turn down a best selling author and deny themselves big time profit? You bet they would, especially if the author calls for a non-violent revolution and ditching the One Party System, also known as the Republicans and Democrats.

On the Alex Jones Show today, former professional wrestler, Navy UDT veteran, actor, and former radio and television talk show host Jesse Ventura revealed this is precisely what happened when he shopped his latest book, “Don’t Start the Revolution Without Me,” written with co-author Dick Russell. He was turned down by large corporate publishers and eventually went with a small publisher, Skyhorse Publishing. It helped that Skyhorse’s consulting editor Herman Graf has a relationship with Ventura’s partner, Russell. Otherwise this important book may have never realized the light of day.

In addition to calling for non-violent revolution and ditching the Demopublicans in the book, Jesse recalls a post-inaugural meeting with CIA agents. As Ventura told Alex Jones, he was less than cooperative with the CIA because the agents, 23 in all gathered at the Minnesota capitol, would not reveal their names, not even their code names. As Tim Pugmire wrote on the Minnesota Public Radio website last January, “CIA Spokesman George Little confirmed the event … in a written statement, but he offered few details.” Little said that “on occasion CIA officers meet with senior state government officials, as they did in this case, to discuss issues of mutual interest.”

Moreover, the CIA wanted to know “how had the independent wrestler candidate” managed to win the election. In other words, the CIA was concerned about the fact an outsider had managed to circumvent the entrenched political establishment and capture the governorship. “In our country, there is a certain ruling class that won’t give up the power,” Ventura writes. “I know I had to be destroyed because of what I represented and how I got elected. There was a ripple of fright that what happened in Minnesota could be a trend.”

Jesse writes that he soon discovered “there is a CIA operative inside every state government…. In Minnesota, this person was at a deputy commissioner level, fairly high up.” On Alex’s show, Jesse twice made mention of the fact the CIA’s charter explicitly prohibits domestic operations.

Shortly after the attacks of September 11, 2001, we were told the “Central Intelligence Agency is poised to get involved in domestic surveillance and investigations in ways that are unprecedented in its history,” according to the Christian Science Monitor. “But as the nation girds itself against global terrorism carried out on American soil, the barriers between covert, stealthy intelligence and by-the-book domestic law enforcement investigations are beginning to melt.”

In fact, the CIA has carried out domestic operations since its inception, most notably Operation CHAOS, a massive illegal domestic covert operation. “The CIA considered this a normal extension of its authorized infiltration of dissident groups abroad even though the activity was taking place within the U.S.,” writes Verne Lyon. “This activity led the CIA to establish proprietary companies, fronts, and covers for its domestic operations. So widespread did they become that President Johnson allowed the then CIA Director, John McCone, to create in 1964 a new super-secret branch called the Domestic Operations Division (DOD), the very title of which mocked the explicit intent of Congress to prohibit CIA operations inside the U.S.”

As the CIA’s favorite newspaper, the Washington Post, reported in 2005, the CIA had planned “to relocate the headquarters of its [supposedly illegal] domestic division, which is responsible for operations and recruitment in the United States, from the CIA’s Langley headquarters to Denver, a move designed to promote innovation.” In short, the CIA and the corporate media are admitting the CIA’s purported charter is in fact a dead letter.

It makes perfect sense Jesse Ventura would have a difficult time getting his book published after a less than welcoming meeting with the CIA and his subsequent call for a non-violent revolution. It is now common knowledge that back in the late 1940s the CIA established Operation Mockingbird “with the intent of buying influence behind the scenes at major media outlets and putting reporters on the CIA payroll, which has proven to be a stunning ongoing success,” as Mary Louise writes for Prison Planet. In addition to controlling newspapers, the CIA exercises control over book publishing.

“The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda. These individuals provide the CIA with direct access to a large number of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets,” according to the Church Committee and the Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities back in 1976.

So it does not come as a revelation that Jesse Ventura had numerous publishing venues denied, even though he is a best-selling author and should be a hotly sought after commodity. For now, there are a large number of smaller publishing companies willing to publish books revealing what the CIA and the ruling elite do not want the benighted masses to know. However, if the elite have their way smaller publishers will either eventually be closed down or brought into the fold. In the meantime, it is the job of high profile people such as Jesse Ventura to fearlessly tell the truth and small, fiercely independent publishers to print and distribute their books.
