Jesse Ventura and Ron Paul: Iran in 1953 was the first time the CIA overthrew a foreign government

Jesse Ventura and producer Brigida Santos discuss the aggression of US foreign policy and look at the country’s current conflicts including hot wars, cold wars, economic wars and proxy wars. They also break down the history of the 1953 coup in Iran–the C.I.A’s first successful takedown of a foreign government. Doctor Ron Paul talks about the financial drivers of war and weighs in on whether cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin could be the most peaceful form of international money.

NYT reporter David Suskind on statement from Karl Rove circa 2005/6:"The aide said that guys like me were ”in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who ”believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ”That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. ”We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which… Read more »

Being a member of the only ethnic group that has to prove blood quantum, I'm glad a fellow frogman speaks the truth about the ugly history of broken treaties and the treatment of the indigenous by the government even to this day. "this stuff will make you a godamn sexual tyrannosaurus, just like me" JV. Love this guy.

1) Why isn't Israel — which actually has 80-200 unacknowledged nukes, made from material stolen from the U.S. and not subject to any arms control treaty — not the state under international sanctions? Based on known history, I'd trust Iran with a bomb before I'd trust Israel, known for its warlike nature and for using false flags to frame its enemies. 2) The real experts have said for years that Iran wasn't seeking to build a bomb in the first place. But if they were, they would be well justified. Any dummy can see that War$hington and its fellow gang… Read more »

Jesse is wrong about abortion. Why don't we legalize all murder. People still murder, and in many cases, the murderer puts his life in danger. We need a safe place for murders to take place.

How many people realize England snuck back into our nation and took back our wealth and think of us as a colony? They have extracted the wealth of the people and turned our nation into a nation exactly like the UK. Nobody has homes anymore, nobody can dream of affording a middle class lifestyle again. We are all the subjects of the rentsiers. Rent seeking upper class who feed on the wealth of the "lessers" . We have even developed a 3 tiered class society. The upper 1%, the next 5% and the rest of us living on 1% of… Read more »
