Keep your #AskJesse questions coming and Jesse Ventura will keep answering them from #OffTheGrid!
Eddie Pineda from Australia asks: Do you think the Illuminati are controlling the American government?
I don’t know. I’ve heard about the Illuminati but I’ve never met one. So it would be very difficult for me to say if they are or aren’t controlling our government.
I’d like to meet a few of these Illuminati members. Do they ride around on motorcycles like the Hell’s Angels do?
How do you get to meet an Illuminati? That’s the million-dollar question we’ve got to answer. I need to meet an Illuminati to find out if they are indeed influencing the United States government or not.
David Lefort from Canada writes: I have lots of respect for you. You are great man to follow. Do you know anything about the economics collapse that is supposed to happen in 2015?
I haven’t heard anything specifically about it.
Of course, there are always naysayers that are out there telling us there’s going to be an economic collapse every year. Are they right or wrong? I don’t know.
I haven’t heard a thing about an economic collapse in 2015. I guess you would have to talk to the Federal Reserve. They would probably be the best people to ask that questions to.
David Stone from Canada asks: If the NSA has recorded all communications, how can the attorney general say there isn't enough evidence to support an indictment against Wall Street?
That’s interesting isn’t it? If they get all the communications, they ought to have plenty of evidence to do a lot of things with. Remember though, its selective prosecution.
My father use to tell me, “If you go down and steal a loaf of bread to eat, they’ll throw the book at you. But if you commit a ‘white collar’ crime, you just get slapped on the knuckles.
We do have selective prosecution in our country. The haves get by a lot more than the have-nots do.
Have-nots end up in jail, haves usually don’t.
Chris Kaffel from Ohio asks: When is the right time for violent rebellion? Peaceful protests are not working, and the greedy bureaucrats don't care about our pleas. Peaceful revolution is too slow, doesn't work as effectively or as wide scale as a violent revolution would. Besides, a violent rebellion could bring about change much faster, and results that we could actually see. What do you think governor? When’s the right time?
The right time to rebel is now, but not with violence. I think you need to exhaust every other means and make violence the last on the list.
We have another mechanism that we haven’t exercised yet: it’s called the power of the vote. It’s getting the lemmings out there to stop voting for DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans and start voting for regular citizens. Not people that are part of these political gangs.
We need to exercise that right first before we worry about any kind of violent revolution. The one thing you’ve got to remember about the violent revolution is once you take that step, there’s no turning back. So you have to have your back against the wall before taking that step.
I don’t feel we’ve exhausted all the non-violent things we can do. Are the difficult? You’re damn right they are.
When you look at today when 64% of the American people choose not to vote, that’s a majority. That means more people don’t vote in the United States than do. I think our first revolution should be getting those people that don’t vote to start voting. How about an 80%-85% voter turnout, wouldn’t that be nice.
That would be a revolution you could support that wouldn’t require violence.
