Actually

It probably goes back WAY before Clinton. Like Jesse said these two parties have been in charge for 150 years or so. I know Rockefeller was in control of the school system LONG before Clinton was even born. Go listen to Charlotte Iserbyte.

Thank You Jesse. One of the few Americans still worth for office

I need to finish watching this.

Thank You, Jesse.

Piers : are you genuinely idiotic or do you enjoy THAT MUCH being a SERVANT of your employers ?

I didn't forget your being condescending even with Ron Paul, too, mind you.

Honest mind abstinence MUCH, or what ?

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Very Clever..

He didn't bash the democrats because he knows in 2016 if he can take a chunk of the democrat vote and take a chunk of the Ron Paul vote (many converted former republican neo-cons) he can can make a good run for it.

Jesse tore it up. I believe

Jesse tore it up. I believe he is somebody I could gladly support and campaign for in 2016.

A lot of truth told there.

I like his comments on the political parties.

I think this video sums up how the system works perfectly.

Holy shit at his mention of Al Qaeda banning opium production. This is a fact I've never seen represented on cable media: those muslim mob theocrats aren't OK with opium production.

Fantastic read on the economic motivations for a drug war:
http://www.bradblog.com/?p=9238

Afghan opium production would drop off dramatically, especially in 2001 when the Taliban banned cultivation. But it returned with a vengeance following the late 2001 U.S. invasion. By October 2006, Afghanistan produced 87% of the world's supply of opium.

Cultivation now takes place in the presence of U.S. Marines, who "are reassuring villagers the poppies won't be touched."

Whether You Liked This Interview or Not, This Was About Ratings

CNN and Piers Morgan are a big fat failure and these kinds of interviews keep CNN and him around for one more day.

Piers Morgan...

Please move back to the UK....I said Please...

It's nice to see

the continued stripping away of the facade which has aided in keeping the people ignorant of the facts for so long. More people are now being forced to pay attention to the elephant in the room as well as the man behind the curtain.

Even Richard Belzer who looks to be sitting in the audience, has written a book concerning the lies we have been led to believe due to undeserved trust of government and authorities.

Thank you for posting this interview, it is very encouraging and thanks also to Dr. Paul for waking us up and spurring this intellectual revolution which looks to be in full swing.

Most exciting MSM interview I've seen in years... Wow.

Jesse earned serious respect and also my support. I could hardly believe what played out before my eyes. It was purely satisfying to see Piers Morgan, in his studio full of people, slapped by the reality that he alone was the wacko with crazy ideas. Then, for Piers to agree with "every word" Jesse said next seemed to prove how quickly a person's views can change to align with the support of the people. The old paradigm continues to crumble before our eyes and new possibilities are revealed. However, I'm betting Jesse won't be invited to any more interviews with MSM in the near future.

The man is a powerful force. He seems to offer something like an antidote to the "spell" cast by a bizarro world of television/government propaganda. I hope every man, woman, and child gets to watch this interview, maybe it will light the spark in them too.

My only

regret is not supporting the idea of getting JV to run this cycle.

I remember when JV was first waking up. He was down here in Texas campaigning for Kinky Friedman. (for Governor) I actually had JV's former campaign manager Dean Barkley sitting on my couch at a fund raiser we had at the house.

Alex Jones caught him at a Mexican restaurant down by San Antonio and got an interview with him in the back office. At times, JV looked like he wanted to punch AJ in the face because he was simply not aware of some of the things that happened on 9/11 and it made him very uncomfortable to have a discussion about it.
http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/september2006/260906ven...

Soon after that, JV's son gave him a copy of "Loose Change," the light bulb went off, and he has been studying ever since.
The point is that JV (like all of us) is experiencing a learning curve. He may not be well versed in Austrian economics, but he has grapefruit sized balls, he's not afraid to be wrong, and he's willing to learn. MOST IMPORTANTLY, he's willing to speak OUT.

The guy who ran up on stage and whispered in JV's ear when Morgan went to break was actor Richard Belzer,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaX-HD1zIxs
who was recently on AJ's show and is apparently a listener. I'll bet he was giving JV some ammo to hit Morgan with.

If Gary Johnson knew what he was doing, he would have been BEGGING JV to run, and got on the ticket as VP.

NO ONE has more name recognition with the average Joe than Jesse Ventura. You just saw what he did with that studio audience. I'd be surprised if he's ever invited back on that show after embarrassing that twit Morgan. I'd almost bet that Morgan thought he was going to turn the audience against JV. It blew up right in his face.
That was FREAKIN' AWESOME!

In hindsight, I wish I would have used what connections I had to lobby JV to run THIS election, instead of wasting my time on other things. I'm not too optimistic about 2016. I'm hoping we make it through 2013 at this point.

I can tell you this. I will NEVER support another candidate for ANY office that is not at least willing to call out the original investigation of 9/11 for the farce it is. I plead with Dr. Paul to do so in personal letters, he refused, and they used him as a punching bag anyway because they KNEW he wasn't going to go there.

When they went after RP on the UBL thing, he could have EASILY shut them down by attacking the initial fraud of a 9/11 investigation. It's unfortunate because 9/11 was the springboard for all of this insanity.

When 6 of the 10 9/11 commissioners make public conflicting statements about their OWN investigation, then there is a problem. Imagine if one of your family members was murdered and the detectives came back later and said "well, sorry, they decided not to tell us the truth about what happened that day. Maybe someday we'll know."

I'll end with some of the 9/11 commissioners' statements.

Senator Max Cleland, who resigned from the 9/11 Commission after calling it a “national scandal”, stated in a 2003 PBS interview,
“I’m saying that’s deliberate. I am saying that the delay in relating this information to the American public out of a hearing… series of hearings, that several members of Congress knew eight or ten months ago, including Bob Graham and others, that was deliberately slow walked… the 9/11 Commission was deliberately slow walked, because the Administration’s policy was, and its priority was, we’re gonna take Saddam Hussein out.”
Cleland, speaking with Democracy Now, said,
“One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up”.

In 2006 the Washington Post reported that several members of the 9/11 Commission suspected deception on part of the Pentagon. As reported,
“Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.”

9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerry also has unanswered questions. As reported by Salon, he believes that there are legitimate reasons to believe an alternative version to the official story.

“There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version,” Kerrey said. The commission had limited time and limited resources to pursue its investigation, and its access to key documents and witnesses was fettered by the administration.

Commissioner Tim Roemer, speaking to CNN, stated that Commission members were considering a criminal probe of false statements. As quoted,
“We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting,” Roemer told CNN. “We were not sure of the intent, whether it was to deceive the commission or merely part of the fumbling bureaucracy.”
----
In 2006, The Washington Post reported… ”Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004, debated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation, according to several commission sources. Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and to the commission…”

Just want to mention

If you liked these videos MoxNews takes donations. You can thank him for his hard work.

Religion

I understand where Jesse is coming from on his stance about organized religion. Although, you can't always judge a religion by it's followers.

I think his point is primarily about organized religion playing their part in events throughout history.

However, I did not know he was an atheist. I don't really care if he is an atheist, although I would like to hear his point of view on it.

Remember, freedom of religion also applies to freedom of not wanting to belong to a religion. God is an entirely different matter. Religion for a great many people is a path to help them find God. God is also there for those who choose not to follow the path.

Jesse has always excited me by telling it like it is, and not taking crap from anyone. I would support him making a run for President.

You really need to read a thought provoking book...

entitled Atheism: The Case Against God by George H. Smith who addresses the arguments in favor of the existence of a God as well as the issue of just what do we mean by the idea of God.

One of the most lucid books you will ever read.

"Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals- that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the

ITS TOTAL RUBBISH

Religion doesn't cause all the problems in the world, you guys in America see it that way because Christian fundamentalists are dominant over there. Here in the UK and Europe agonostic or athiest socialists are even worse. The elite simply use different tactics... like the woman and children are gonna get raped and killed or gays are gonna get stoned and they show some pics or video and next thing you know the athiest socialist are demanding government to go help them. Infact Christians make up only 5% of the Uk population. There are many athiest Jews that openly lobby for ISreal not on relgious grounds, but because they feel after the holacast its their safe haven and are duty bound. Don't forget athiest Stalin killing 10 million christian Ukrainains and detroying their churches.. are you gonna blame relgion. Blaming relgion is simply another talking point.

Also we see the lies of the west casting the muslim as this extremist hell bent on killing the infadal. The truth is there are many of these nut jobs, but they can only thrive on a population that have had the shit bombed out of them and willing to die for revenge. I mean after world war 1... many many Germans were vowing revenge and they got their chance in WW2. I've been to Church and trust me the true Christians are feeding the poor and against war.

Amen to that!

This argument is not a good one from Ventura. It's a gross generalisation for a start (Adolf Hitler was an atheist) and left him very vulnerable to Morgan's obvious but effective counters. If you notice its about the only time Piers stumps him. He easily plays the WWII card, then follows up with 'you said they were caused by oil and corporations'. Its a valid point.

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

I have a choice.

In 2016, I have a choice! Rand Paul,.... Or Jesse Ventura?...

Imagine

Imagine having a hard time picking who to vote for because the candidates are all so good. It would be a win-win deal.

LOL

I hope I live that long.

Tin Pan

That would be a great

That would be a great election! I'd have to say that I would vote JV because he was my gov and won my trust way before Rand. I have a lot of respect formRand but at least JV doesn't play the party game.

this is the missing element

this is the missing element that ron paul was always lacking. it brings a tear to my eye.

SteveMT's picture

Yup. It's the "ifs" Nav, the "ifs."

If Ron Paul had left the repubs, and he took Jesse up on his offer that they run as Independents or Libertarians, where would we be right now? .... In a lot better place, IMO. We'd still be in it to win it!!!

SteveMT's picture

This interview really cleared things up.

The question of who the frontrunner is for 2016 has been answered.
Third party has just become the right way to go.

Piers still doesn't know what hit him.

Only disagreed on first point so far

I disagreed with Ventura on the first point. I agreed with Gov. Romney about the 47% of the public working for the government or being dependent on the government. I've passed the emails around that say that, and say how when a majority of the people in a country vote themselves benefits from the treasury the country is doomed. I agree with it. I think Ventura was ducking the truth of the issue and was disagreeing just trying to make himself look good. I was disappointed in that. I hope people vote for the good of the country, I really do, and think Romney shouldn't have expressed his doubts about how people will vote, but that's that.

I think Ventura showed a little more back bone during the rest of the interview.

Yeah...I actually agree with

Yeah...I actually agree with Mitts on that! The only time that man sounded semi intelligent was on hidden camera.

I don't know what he was trying to do

But I completely agree, I don't know how he denied the reality of that statement by Mittens. The fact is, almost half the country is dependent on govt in some way or another. If you listen closely to left attacks, they almost always include scare tactics regarding the elimination of some govt benefit that people depend on (e.g. ending pell grants for students, ending no co-pay birth control, ending food stamps, etc).

"How many people here think I'm making crackpot theories"

Silence.

"Now how many think I'm making reasonable points?"

The entire audience cheers!

Wow.

There *is* hope out there yet ...

Just wow ...

Yeah man. EAT IT Piers!

Yeah man. EAT IT Piers!

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Piers is a snooty brit

He was hired by MOXNEWS to attack the U.S. Constitution whenever he gets the change. Piers is the lowest of the worms in MSM today.
Jesse did a great job, I think the producer that talked with Jesse during the end of Part II said something to the effect..."Hey man, you've got more brass than Rand, and I'm glad to see someone stick it to this Piers dude the way you just did"
Hey Jesse...You got my vote.
I'm sure that's what he was saying.
