Keep your #AskJesse questions coming and Jesse Ventura will keep answering them from #OffTheGrid!
Daniel Benyoucef from Sweden asks: Do you think the government and the ones pulling the strings put out fake theories so we get confused what's real and what's fake?
Usually they’re called a false flag operation. That’s what the government gets involved with, especially if they’re going to take you to war.
They deceive you into thinking they’re people you should hate, because of what they have done to us. When the reality is we did it to ourselves to achieve that feeling so that they could go to war.
Let me put it to you this way: the government lies to me all the time.
- They lied about the rescue of Jessica Lynch.
- They lied about the murder of Pat Tillman in the war.
- They lied about weapons of mass destruction.
- They lied about ties to Al-Qaida and Iraq.
So the government is not above deceiving us. They operate under a simple premise that the ends justify the means.
Take that with a grain of salt.
Linda Martin from ID asks: What is your opinion of child welfare services?
I don’t really have an opinion on child welfare services because I’ve never truly been involved with it. No one in my family that I know of receives it.
I know that there’s a lot of red tape and stupidity involved in those services. Such as people not being allowed to get part time jobs without losing benefits. I don’t think they should do that. How are you going to get them to the road of recovery if its advantages not to do something because you’re going to lose a benefit?
Continue to give them benefits until they continue to rise up and then they don’t need the benefits anymore.
I’m not particularly up to date on child welfare services information, but you can bet there’s room for vast improvement within it.
"They deceive you into thinking they’re people you should hate, because of what they have done to us. When the reality is, we did it to ourselves..."
Daniel Schell from Ohio asks: How is it that Christians can get away with discrimination, abuse, and even racism? But when someone calls them out on it, they get defense and cry foul?
I would need an example because that’s very hard to reply to in a generality principal like that. Certainly you can’t say that all Christians are that way.
One thing that all religions need to remember is that not everyone believes as you do and some (like myself) don’t believe at all. But we could all hopefully still get along and not bring it into government.
Robert Daughenbaugh from South Carolina asks: Do you think Ted Cruz is an honest man?
I don’t know Ted Cruz, so it’s hard for me to say on a personal level whether he is or isn’t.
I kind of got a laugh when he was trying to portray himself as a regular, everyday guy. When the majority of all his donors are the wealthiest people in the country.
Ted Cruz was born in Canada. Maybe Canada didn’t want him.
Lule Juniper from the UK wants to know: Would Jesse consider coming to the UK and trying to wake up some of our sheep?
I’ve got enough trouble waking up the sheep here in the United States of America!
The only reason I’d go to the UK and wake their sheep up is if I could stay at Keith Richards’ house. That way, I could go to all the Rolling Stones’ rehearsals.
That could intrigue me to come over to the UK for a couple of months. Beyond that, I don’t think so.
Just tell the sheep to listen to me on Off The Grid. Maybe then they’ll wake up.
