Jesse Ventura, former wrestler, former action star, and former governor of Minnesota, is suing the widow of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle for defamation surrounding an account of a bar fight in Kyle’s book.
Kyle recounts how he and Ventura got into it when Ventura denigrated Navy SEALs who had fallen in action. Ventura claims the incident never happened and has been demanding satisfaction for some months now. Just because Kyle is dead does not mean Ventura is no longer in need of financial compensation.

The Obama administration has appointed a bipartisan presidential commission with the stated purpose of recommending changes in election procedures supposedly to streamline our elections. No fewer than five bills to increase federal control over American elections have been filed in the 113th Congress. Even a cursory review of the five bills already proposed reveals an unconstitutional federal power grab over American elections. If these measures are passed, they would also result in a drastic reduction in the remaining electoral safeguards left in at least some of the states.
