military invasions, first at MSNBC when I took a stand
against the invasion of Iraq and then again at RT
America when I spoke out against Russias invasion
of Ukraine. I cant tell you how much it means
to me to finally be able be on a platform like Substack
where I can communicate directly to my fans, supporters,
and everyone else who, like me, wants to see an end
to the two party dictatorship, an end to Wall Streets
unrivaled greed, and most importantly an end to the
Military Industrial Complex that puts all our lives

my unique brand of politics, philosophy, and personal
experiences to the fantastic free speech platform
that is Substack.
you will find all my thoughts, opinions, and personal
life stories from more than five decades of living
the many adventures that have made up my life. From

professional wrestling and then on to when I shocked

state of Minnesota.

Last year I celebrated my 70th trip around the sun
and while Im excited to enter into my so-called
twilight years, I am very disheartened to see that
history has once again repeated itself.
a many successful years of speaking truth to power
on my hit television show The World According
To Jesse on RT America, I was unceremoniously
removed from the airwaves after speaking out against
Russias invasion of Ukraine, just like I was
silenced back in 2003 when MSNBC took me off the air
during run up to the United States invasion
times now my unwavering belief in peace and outspoken
criticism of the Military Industrial Complex have
cost me my job. There will not be a third! So, like
Lebron James heading to Miami, Im bringing my
talents to Substack, one of the few places left where
free speech still reigns supreme.
cant tell you how excited I am to finally have
found a home where I can speak directly to you, the
people. No more strings attached, no more corporate
sponsors, or anonymous network suits worried about
looking good at DC cocktail parties. Here it will
just be me, uncut, unfiltered and unleashed.
Promise To You
In todays world of political spin and paid off
pundits its damn near impossible to find anyone
who actually says what they truly believe, not what
they are paid to believe. Rarely do you see a politician,
journalist, or commentator speak truth to power or
stand by their convictions in the face of adversity.
Better yet, when was the last time you saw a leader
today actually admit when they were wrong?
pledge to you dear subscriber, is that here you will
always get my honest truth. I will call it as I see
it and say whatever is on my mind, just like I did
all those years ago sitting ringside with Gorilla
Monsoon. And if I change my mind or am proven wrong?
I will be the first to admit it. I dont lick
my finger and hold it up to the winds of popularity
or political opportunity, like Donald Trump or Joe
the planet and humanity on the brink. With the War
Hawks and Wall Street Barbarians at our gates. With
the two party dictatorship that runs the U.S. government
codifying the corporate greed of the Democrats and
the Republican cult of oppression. Ive spent
my life running against these winds of fascism and
while others my age are moving to the beach and cashing
Social Security checks, Im not hanging up my
spurs anytime soon. Not by a long shot. Im a
UDT/SEAL we die first, then quit.

Putin Gave Jesse Ventura Creative Control Over Former
Project - July 13, 2022
Ventura met Vladimir Putin years ago, and according
to The Body, the Russian president gave
him something any top wrestler would love to hear:
joined Chris Jericho on the latest episode of Talk
Is Jericho to talk about politics in and outside
the wrestling ring, but the show was heavily focused
on Venturas political viewpoints and plans.
Ventura has started up a new Substack due to his show,
The World According To Jesse, on RT America,
a Russian television branch, being pulled off all
outlets due to the war in Ukraine. Jericho asked Ventura
if thats why his relationship with RT ended.
and it was actually our sanctions that took me off
the air, not Russias, Ventura replied.
First of all, DirectTV and all the providers
took us off, so we werent gonna be on the air.
Second, the banks shut them out, so we couldnt
transfer money, because Russian money was no good
in the bank. So the sanctions they put on destroyed
RT America. Ventura is uncertain as to whether
his final episode ever aired, but he did take a moment
in that episode to make a strong stance on the war.
last show, five minutes in, I stopped the show and
I said, I do not support this invasion, I want
to state right now, Im totally against it and
Im demanding the bloodshed stop now and the
war end immediately, Ventura said. Now
wouldnt that have been a good message to get
to the Russian people? And yet, my message couldnt
get there because our sanctions took me off the air.
Kind of weird that our sanctions actually stopped
me from chastising Russia from invading Ukraine.
World According To Jesse originally started
back in 2017, with the intention to tackle todays
biggest political stories, as well as deeper issues
such as government hypocrisy and corporate deception
through a mix of thought-provoking interviews and
on-the-ground reporting and promised that Ventura
would be just as bold and uncensored in his
approach as he has been all his life. According
to Ventura, that held true for the entirety of his
time on the channel.
admit this, I met Vladimir Putin before I signed,
Putin said. They flew me and my wife to Russia
for the 10-year anniversary of RT. Putin was the keynote
speaker. I met [Mikhail] Gorbachev that night too.
The Putin I met that night Im having a hard
time identifying today, because the Putin I met that
night walked across the room to me, I didnt
go to him.
came to me, held his hand out, said Thank you,
Governor. Called me by my title. And he said,
I want to assure you, you have total creative
control and there will never be any interference in
your show. And I said, Thank you, Mr.
President. And Chris, I have to tell the truth.
For four years, they never interfered in my show at
all. He was a man of his word, so I can only judge
him by my relationship with him, and Im trying
to figure out who this guy is today. What in the hell
happened to him, because I got the feeling when I
met him, he truly wanted to be our friend. That was
the vibes I got from him, and you know me Chris, Im
not too far off with my vibes, but this guy, whoever
Putin is now, either he worked me like hell, and working
a wrestler is tough to do.
has kept himself relatively removed from the pro wrestling
scene, but he last made an appearance as the guest
host of WWE Raw in 2009, where he reprised
his classic commentary position with Vince McMahon.

Ventura on CNN - is he still considering Pres run
- October 2013
WWE wrestler/announcer Jesse Ventura says he is still
considering running for U.S. president in 2016.

night to discuss this week's government shutdown.
Asked at the end of his segment if he will run for

independent ticket. The 2016 Presidential race will
