JESSE VENTURA SAYS POLITICAL PARTIES
ARE JUST THUGS IN BROOKS BROTHERS SUITS


DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans
No More Gangs in Government
By Jesse Ventura with Dick Russell

“It shall be unlawful for any national bank, or any corporation organized by the authority of any laws of Congress, to make a money contribution in connection with any election to any political office.” —Teddy Roosevelt, The Tillman Act, 1907

“[Political parties]…become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government.” —George Washington, 1796

It doesn’t seem to matter which political party wins the 2012 presidential candidacy: “The welfare of the American people is the third priority to any president,” states Governor Jesse Ventura. “First there’s the promises to the corporations which paid millions of dollars to fund his campaign, next his allegiance to his political party, third on the list is what would be best for the nation.”

In his new book, DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans: No More Gangs in Government, New York Times bestselling author and former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura exposes how the two major parties have allowed corporations, lobbyists, wealthy individuals, and Super PACs to manipulate elections, bribe elected officials, and silence the average American voter. Through analyzing historical documents such as the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, and letters of forewarning from the Founding Fathers, Ventura uncovers the development of the two-party system and unravels the ineptitude and gang-like mentality of both parties to reveal:

Government Salaries, Healthcare, & Retirement Benefits: “The average representative makes $174K a year, while the average American household makes $50K. In 2009, 261 of the 535 members of Congress were millionaires. In short, our federal lawmakers are nine times richer than the average American. They vote on their own raises, healthcare, and pension plans, and we are left with the bill. If government-run healthcare is good enough for Congress, it should be good enough for the rest of us.”

The Postal Service: “At age 236, the U.S. Postal Service is older than the Constitution. Congress used this financially sound institution as a slush fund by borrowing the retirement and Social Security benefits of the employees. Couple that with the Postal Accountability Enhancement Act and it’s obvious that UPS and FedEX have nothing to do with USPS branches closing around the country.”

Iraq & Afghanistan: Our First Contract Wars: “The government hired corporations to do the jobs of our troops. Pay scale ranged as high as $1,500 a day for contract workers, far beyond what our troops will ever be paid for serving our country. Now the government runs its wars without the involvement of citizens, without a draft, without mass protests. The Pentagon itself acknowledged that $8.2 billion of taxpayer money flowed through contracts into Iraq, but there wasn’t enough recordkeeping or oversight to determine what this money actually funded.”

Insider Trading in Congress: “On average, members of Congress beat the market by 12% a year. This is way beyond luck or just being smart. Not even Warren Buffett does that well. No wonder they gave Goldman Sachs a $30 billion taxpayer-funded loan at .01% interest. In return, our interest rates for late credit card payments rose over 25%. When it comes to campaign funding, Goldman has contributed over $400K to ‘Twitt’ Romney, Representative of the 1%.”

The Rigging of Electronic Voting Machines: “The corporations that invent electronic voting machines are legally allowed to commit voter fraud. The ES&S touch screen voting system flipped votes in 2010 against Governor Rick Perry. ES&S denied any unbiased, independent verification from outside of the corporation to recount the votes, stating they can withhold the votes due to copyright and material ownership of technology. Our votes no longer belong to us; they are the property of the corporations. The only way to counteract voting fraud is to go back to a system where there is a paper trail.”

Super PACs, Religion, & Lobbyists: “The Tea Party is funded by Koch Industries, or Big Oil. The Koch brothers gave over $55 million in bribes to scientists to say global warming is a hoax. They are a vast political network, sponsoring Christian conservative rallies and funding political ad campaigns nationwide. They are instrumental in busting unions and they pushed for the Citizens United/ ‘corporations are people’ law.”

The Media: “Otherwise known as slaves to their advertisers, the media cares more about ratings than covering the important issues. They have no incentive to report reliable, unbiased news when their corporate sponsors advocate the idea that there are only two sides to politics.”

Much like the Occupy Wall Street movement, governor Ventura believes that our government has lost touch with what our Founding Fathers had in mind: “They wanted us to vote for individuals and what each individual stood for, not the political agenda of a particular group.” He now calls for the abolishment of the party system. “It is my hope that this book is a step toward winning back our country,” he says. “I can’t be an advocate for third party politics anymore because parties don’t run on ideas, they run on funding from sources interested in only amassing more power.” As the 2012 election season approaches, DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans will most certainly be a cornerstone for reforming our electoral system.

    For Your Information

    Today, Leslie Davis, environmental and financial activist, and founder and president of the Earth Protectors (www.EarthProtector.org) filed a complaint and 19 Exhibits with the Minnesota Attorney General alleging that James George Janos, a.k.a. Jesse Ventura (Ventura) committed fraud against the people of Minnesota by lying about being a United States Navy SEAL so they would vote for him as Governor in 1998.

    Davis wants Attorney General Swanson to prosecute Ventura and get back the money he was paid for salary and expenses while fraudulently serving as Governor.

    In addition, Davis wants the media to know that Ventura is not a friend of the Occupy groups. On December 20, 1998, as Governor-elect he supported the raid, arrest, and torture of innocent people trying to protect seven houses from demolition for a road and rail that he supported. Ventura supports torture when it suits him and complains when other do it.

    Complaint to Minnesota Attorney General is attached.

    Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson
    102 State Capitol Building
    St. Paul, MN 55155

    Re: Fraud complaint against James George Janos, a.k.a. Jesse Ventura

    Dear Attorney General Swanson:

    We hereby request that you prosecute James George Janos, a.k.a. Jesse Ventura (Ventura) for committing fraud by lying about being a United States Navy SEAL in order to deceive the public and win the Governorship of Minnesota with less than 57,000 votes out of more than two million.

    Ventura should be required to return all the money he was paid by the State of Minnesota for salary and expenses while fraudulently serving as Governor.

    Fraud definition from Dictionary.com
    1. Deceit, trickery, breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit
    or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage.
    2. A particular instance of such deceit or trickery: election fraud.
    3. Any deception, trickery, or humbug.
    4. A person who makes deceitful pretenses; sham; poseur.

    The statute of limitations does not apply in this case because Ventura’s fraudulent claims of being a Navy SEAL have been continuous since at least 1998. In a recent comment on his Facebook page Ventura refers to SEAL sniper Chris Kyle as “a fellow Navy SEAL”.
    Ventura was not a SEAL so Mr. Kyle could not have been “a fellow Navy SEAL.”
    Exhibit 14

    Ventura stole the valor and reputation of the SEALS and made it the centerpiece of his 1998 campaign in order to enhance his image so people would vote for him (Exhibit 7). He talked about his SEAL experience before, during and after his term in office and he still claims to have been a Navy SEAL. As Governor his Communications Director John Wodele said he was not a SEAL (Exhibit 13).
    Exhibits 1-19 and assorted SEAL quotes

    People had an embedded image of Ventura as a Navy SEAL and they took for granted that he was a trained, obedient, disciplined, dedicated Navy SEAL who served in Vietnam and he would serve well as an uncorrupted Governor.

    The fact of the matter is that Ventura was never a Navy SEAL, never served in Vietnam, and is alleged to have served time in the Navy brig (jail) for misbehaving.

    Retired Navy SEAL Commander Bill Salisbury challenged Ventura’s SEAL credentials in a San Diego Reader article.
    Exhibit 12

    In the book “Always Cheat”, Navy SEAL Commander Salisbury said,
    “To earn the right to call himself a “SEAL” a man had to serve in a SEAL rather than [in] an Underwater Demolition Team for at least six months and be recommended for the SEAL classification 5326 by his commanding officer. Such classification would appear on the man’s DD214 discharge certificate. The 5326 designation does not appear on Ventura’s DD214 only the 5321/22 designation for Underwater Demolition. Ventura was not even ‘technically’ a SEAL, even though he served a very short time with a reserve UDT/SEAL unit. He was never awarded the 5326 classification.”
    Exhibit 17

    For many years, reporter Brian Bakst and the Associated Press, aided Ventura’s fraud by reporting lies to their paid subscribers and to the public. A significant lie was reported on November 4, 2011, when reporting on Ventura’s dismissed lawsuit against the TSA. The Associated Press said, “The former navy SEAL said he had lost his patriotism.” Bakst and the Associated Press knew Ventura was not a SEAL and they deliberately lied about it for this article.
    Exhibit 16

    Earth Protector® joint complainant

    Earth Protector is a joint complainant in this matter. Earth Protector was formed in 1983 to protect the environment and the economy. Ventura, by his lies, gained office and violated and denigrated the environment when he:
    1. Killed caged birds at a game farm in Hugo, Minnesota, with Charlie Weaver and Maria Shriver.
    2. Appointed Karen Studders, a gas company executive, and pollution rubber stamper, as Commissioner of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.
    3. Discontinued the auto emission testing program thereby increasing air pollution in the Twin Cities.
    4. As Governor-elect, Ventura supported the raid, torture, and arrest, of peaceful protesters at the Highway 55 Occupation on December 20, 1998.
    Exhibit 14

    The citizens of Minnesota appreciate your actions on this matter.

    Respectfully submitted,

    Leslie Davis

  2. Robert Rowe says:

    to those PARTY-BOTS out there similar to the scientology scibot known as vaLLarr on the youtube video “The Unfunny Truth about Scientology” with over 2 million views, Jesse Ventura today is LEGALLY a former navy seal. in his time it was called a “FROGMAN” but that later MERGED and just became a different part of the S.E.A.L. program. at ‘mopar at thunder mountain’ at bandimere speedway in colorado or other “mopar day” events at other drag strips you see AMC Javelins AMXs which were built by American Motors not the Chrysler Corporation. but Chrysler bought out AMC and they are now MOPARs like the General Lee, Plymouth Roadrunner and Dodge Super Bee and now that Fiat bought Chrysler Corp you can have Ferarris at “Mopar at Thunder Mountain”. So STFU about this personal CLERICAL exception of yours. your elephants and donkeys are sawing away at the tree known as ‘AMERICAN FREEDOM’ by see-sawing who controls the legislature and they will keep doing so til either the people boot them out by voting indepents in from city to national level or you die in fema camps.
