It's another edition of Ask Jesse! This time, the Governor sounds off on ISIS, elections, and whether he's considering running for president in 2016.
Edward Simon from Georgia asks: "Someone presented a hypothesis: ISIS was a CIA, MI6 or KGB experiment that went awry. All three agencies have effected one situation or another."
All I know is had we not invaded Iraq there would be no ISIS.It’s that clear.Had we not destabilized the entire region in the Middle East -- including Libya, Iraq and Syria -- we would not have these religious radicals. Had we not invaded Iraq, there would be no such thing asISIS.
Jack Piere from North Texas asks: "What will come first: Economic collapse or martial law/false flag?"
Economic collapse would have to come first to cause everything to go into chaos. Then the government would have the excuse to place everyone under martial law -- you have to have a reason to do it.Generally speaking, a catastrophic event must occur for the government to declare martial law.
Gary Min from California asks: "America is gone. How do we get back?"
Stop electing Democrats and Republicans. That’s the only way. The future is in your hands. You can take control locally.Don’t put political parties on ballots, only candidates’ names. There’s plenty of ways to go about it. People must simply take the initiative to do it, but no one will. There are far too many lemmings out there.
Edward Miller from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico asks: "Would you run for president if you were shown how the debt could immediately be eliminated?"
That isn’t going to be the deciding factor. Running for President is a personal decision. Do I want to take on that kind of personal responsibility? Do I want to take on that job? I’m not saying yes or no right now. It depends on who the candidates will end up being on both sides of the political parties. There’s a lot of “What ifs?”
Patrick Oehlke from North Dakota asks: "How do you respond to an article in the Huffington Post saying there is no way the Democratic Party will have Bernie Sanders as their guy?"
I think that’s very accurate. These are two elities groups. Candidates are picked by delegates, they will not be picked by votes or anything of that nature. This means you have to be part of a political party. Hillary Clinton will always have the “super delegates” - whoever they are.It’s an elitist system all the way - you truly do not pick the president in the system you have. The delegates are not necessarily bound by how you voted - they can vote for whomever they want. Your best example is 2000 election, when Al Gore received half a million more votes than George W. Bush, and yet, he still was not the President. Simply because of the delegates.
