“Jesse Ventura Is a Hero… Unlike the sniper who smeared him.” Article by Jay Stephenson. – LewRockwell.com
In the months leading up to this week’s trial in federal court involving the former independent governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura and deceased American sniper and Pentagon poster boy Chris Kyle, the Iraq war cheerleaders had already cast their hero and villain.

Let’s talk reality: When the film shows jihadists storming into a village and lopping off a man’s head, it understates their atrocities. I don’t know what has to be done to penetrate the thick skulls of the willfully ignorant, but the Taliban and their al-Qaeda allies are evil to a degree Americans (obviously) have trouble comprehending.

“Dude, I don’t need to play these stupid games. I know what you’re trying to do.” With that, Major Matthew Robert Bockholt hung up on me.
More than a month before, I had called U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) with a series of basic questions: In how many countries were U.S. Special Operations Forces deployed in 2013? Are manpower levels set to expand to 72,000 in 2014? Is SOCOM still aiming for growth rates of 3%-5% per year? How many training exercises did the command carry out in 2013? Basic stuff.

The original Navy Jack was made up of 13 horizontal stripes — seven red and six white. A rattlesnake was later added diagonally across the flag, along with the words, “Don’t Tread On Me,” on the lowest white stripe.

On August 6, 2011, a military helicopter—Extortion 17, carrying thirty-eight men, including seventeen of the elite SEAL Team 6—was shot down over Taliban-controlled territory in eastern Afghanistan. It was the worst loss of life in a single day suffered since the Afghanistan war began.
Per a 1300-page military report, it was simply the result of a “lucky shot” by Taliban soldiers perched on top of a building.

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 book is still selling. It is to be made into a movie by Steven Spielberg. Kyle’s grieving widow must now pay.

The Assasination of Top Sniper American SEAL Chris Kyle

All America needs is yet another unexplained lone gunman non-terrorist killing of American Hero Chris Kyle. He was America’s most celebrated sniper of the Afghanistan conflict described by wikipedia:a United States Navy SEAL and the most lethal sniper in American military history, with 160 confirmed kills out of 255 claimed kills
At the age of 8, Kyle’s father taught him to shoot. As a youth, he trained as a bronco rider for the rodeo, which he gave up after a serious injury to his arm.
He had intended to volunteer and enlist in the U.S. Marine Corps, and was recruited by the U.S. Army, but eventually enlisted with the U.S. Navy.
Kyle served four tours in the second Iraq war, and was awarded the Bronze and Silver Star medals multiple times. Iraqi insurgents dubbed him the “Devil of Ramadi” and offered an increasing bounty for his head. He was shot twice, and was involved in six IEDattacks. Kyle separated from the U.S. Navy with an honorable discharge in 2009 to spend time with his family.
He remained in the spotlight during retirement, and wrote a New York Times bestselling autobiography, American Sniper.–snip–Sarah Palin, God bless her was one of the first political figures to mourn Kyle.

CDR Price has a wife and young daughter back home in Virginia, and for the officer’s tragic death to be labeled an “apparent suicide” on Christmas Eve, makes us wonder if this was really something else.
Looking into the dead commander’s background, there is nothing to indicate he would do such a thing, much less put his beloved family through such a terrible ordeal at this time of the year.
Price’s past was like a storybook tale. He was a varsity wrestler and member of the championship football team at Pottstown High School in his native Pennsylvania. A member of the National Honor Society there, he was a much-decorated Naval officer who’d been boss of Seal Team Four since June of 2011.

The European Union Times is reporting a very different story about Hillary Clinton than what is coming out of U.S. mainstream media. I have no way to gauge the veracity of the EUT story, but merely publish it here for the record:
A new Foreign Military Intelligence (GRU) report circulating in the Kremlin today is saying that United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was injured, and a top US Navy Seal Commander killed when their C-12 Huron military passenger and transport aircraft crash landed nearly 3 weeks ago in the Iranian city of Ahvaz near the Iraqi border.
Iranian intelligence agents quoted in this GRU report confirm that the C-12 Huron aircraft is still in their possession in Ahvaz, but will only admit that the plane was “forced to land because of technical problems”.
The US Navy Seal member reported killed in this bizarre incident, this report says, was indentified as Commander Job W. Price who as a leader of this highly specialized American Special Forces unit protects high-ranking diplomats traveling in Middle Eastern and Asian combat zones.
CHARLES WOODS, father of Tyrone Woods:
‘I can’t imagine anyone with any heart that would watch a battle rage for seven hours knowing that heroes were there that were going to be slaughtered if you didn’t have help sent in.
Because we know that C130s could have been sent there in less than an hour. Jets could have been scrambled in minutes from many different parts of the globe. The order was ‘don’t help them, let them die.’

It has been a sickening few days for those of us who have closely followed the revelations coming out about the Benghazi terror attack that killed not only Ambassador Chris Stevens and diplomat Sean Smith, but also CIA operators (and former SEALs) Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who died undertaking a rescue mission — unauthorized — to save the rest of the consulate staff.
In “The Finish,” journalist Mark Bowden quotes the president as saying he thought he would be in a strong political position to argue in favor of giving bin Laden the full rights of a criminal defendant if bin Laden went on trial for masterminding the Sept. 11 attacks.

Press TV: Special Ops con, imaginary warfare and non-existent enemies | Veterans Today (“The whole thing was staged, go somewhere, kill an old man, claim it is Osama bin Laden, move General Petraeus to CIA and he can’t claim he killed bin Laden and run for president.”)
By Gordon Duff and Press TV
With an election book by a SEAL, real or imaginary, out now, it is time for an honest discussion of “Special Operations” from someone who has actually sat through “mission planning” sessions involving three continents.
Thus far, the quotes I have read, of finding an unidentified old man shot but not dead and then shooting his wounded body repeatedly makes
sense.Any old man would do as lying about who it is can easily be done under cloak of secrecy, like lying about the helicopter crash though photos of the downed “carbon fibre stealth helicopter” were in every paper.Witness also so crash dead, crew and SEALS. We lied about that too.Someone may have murdered an old man; we have no idea who neither did they.
The whole thing was a political con.Then, noting from this recent book that SEALS are obsessed with leaking information, we had a record number of SEAL deaths in an air crash in Afghanistan reported soon after, totaling as many dead SEALS as the entire Vietnam War.Let’s start with the con of Vietnam. The US was involved, I am guessing as I am no longer sure of anything, in a Cold War.
Under the surface, however, the world’s banking system, the same one that controls the Federal Reserve, also built up Russia, made deals for their diamonds to join DeBeers “price fixing” and, of course, most of Russia’s spying on America went through Israel and agents like Jonathan Pollard, one of hundreds.Two things come to mind in Vietnam. One was the major effort to blame others for the flow of heroin from the Golden Triangle on a single incident where someone put an ounce of heroin in a body being sent home.

Al Qaeda has wasted no time in calling for the death of the former Navy SEAL who has written a book under a pseudonym which his publisher Dutton calls a first person account of the death of Osama bin Laden.
The ad in Gainesville depicts two men in camouflage holding weapons. The text next to the picture, in a military style font, says “The Seals removed one threat to America,” a reference to the killing of Osama bin Laden. It continues, “Remove the other in November.”
The author of a recently announced insider account of the raid that killed Usama bin Laden has been identified to Fox News as a 36-year-old former Navy SEAL Team 6 member from Alaska who also played a role in the high-profile rescue of an American captain kidnapped by Somali pirates.
Obama Administration Upset / SEAL Will Release First Hand Account of Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden
A Navy SEAL is releasing the real story on the Osama Bin Ladenraid.
For the first time a member of SEAL Team 6 has written a book setting the record straight on the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan. The book was not authorized by the Obama Administration and will give the real story not told by the Obama-media. The book was vetted by a former special operation’s attorney. The majority of the proceeds from the book will go to charities that support families of fallen Navy SEALs. Reutersreported:
The U.S. government was surprised by the news that a Navy SEAL who participated in the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan has written a book about the operation in which the al Qaeda leader was killed, U.S. officials said on Wednesday.
(Col Sellin) Has General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made himself a political shill for the Obama Administration? ~ Family Security Matters
According to Fox News, General Dempsey criticized a group of former military and intelligence operatives for its aggressive campaign against President Obama, telling Fox News that he is “disappointed” by such political activity, which he called “not useful.”Specifically, Dempsey denounced a group of former CIA agents, Navy SEALs and other military members, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, who recently released a long-form political ad blasting Obama for security leaks on his watch, as well as suggesting he has taken too much credit for the SEALs raid in Pakistan that killed Usama bin Laden.Those seem to be legitimate criticisms made by knowledgeable and experienced individuals.
Dempsey, however, said as the steward of his profession — the military — he thinks it imperative that the military remain “apolitical.”Nonsense. They are civilians.This is nothing less than a blatant attempt by Dempsey to silence criticism of Obama because it makes him look bad to the Administration that appointed him.One imagines the Obama campaign dressing down Dempsey:
ads against him.

Politically speaking, Navy SEALs aren’t the safest targets to rail against in a presidential race, but the Obama campaign isn’t hesitating to take down a group of former SEALs who’ve criticized the president’s national security decisions.
On Thursday morning, campaign officials waged a full court press against the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, a group of former U.S. Special Forces and intelligence officials accusing President Obama of leaking vital national security secrets and taking too much credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden.
A new, scathing Internet video accuses Obama of arrogantly taking credit for the kill when he had little to do with it and for revealing operational details they believe compromise our forces, our location, our sources and more.

ran a segment on the military members who are taking action against President Barack Obama and his administration for their deliberate, continuing national-security leaks that are endangering the lives of the military men and women who serve and protect the United States of America. In that segment, liberal smear artist Bob Beckel defended the Obama White House’s intentional release of highly sensitive and highly classified security information:
Carl Higbie served as a Navy SEAL for nine years, but was forced to retire after speaking out against President Obama’s policies. Higbie was threatened with dishonorable discharge for writing the book, “Battle on the Home Front,” but instead was able to simply retire.
“My commanders were more concerned about how the fallout of this book would affect their careers than they were concerned about how re-electing President Obama would affect the country,” Higbie said.

In response to the question in the title I can report that most of my readers are. Almost everyone got the point of the last column. They see the absurdity of the government’s claim that the identity of the tough, macho Navy Seals, who allegedly murdered Osama bin Laden, has to be kept secret in order to protect our fierce warriors from reprisals from Muslim terrorists, while those government officials responsible for the torture and deaths of large numbers of Muslims can walk around, identity known, unprotected and safe.
A backlash is growing to the victory dance over the terrorist’s death, fueling concerns that Obama’s biggest foreign policy success could be turned against him
Many Navy SEALs are not happy that President Obama is “taking the credit for killing Osama bin Laden,” says Toby Harnden at Britain’s The Daily Mail. Quoting retired and active SEALs, both on the record and off, Harnden makes the case that many SEALs resent Obama for using the group as “ammunition” in his re-election campaign. Some U.S. commentators dismissed the report as a conservative hatchet job, but others aren’t so sure, saying Republicans could use the SEALs’ alleged complaints to undercut Obama’s most visible foreign policy success, much the way the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth decimated John Kerry’s image as a decorated war hero in 2004. Is Obama about to be swift-boated?
Obama is skating on thin ice: “The frustration — or even anger — within the SEAL community is real,” and if Obama’s not careful, he could see his greatest foreign policy asset slip away, says Michael Hastings at BuzzFeed. Conservatives’ “stagey outrage” over Obama trumpeting the death of bin Laden could find a more publicly palatable vehicle in the SEALs, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see “navysealsagainstobama.com sprout up soon.” The Obama campaign might want to reconsider whether “spiking the football, again, and again, and again, in public” is such a good idea, after all. “Will the Navy SEALs swift boat Obama?”
Without SEAL Team 6′s exploits that day, there is little doubt reports of a new commando team in the Persian Gulf would have raised an eyebrow.
As it is, military blogs are buzzing about Spencer Ackerman’s story at Danger Room where he reports that a new “elite commando team” is operating in the Gulf region.
Ackerman spoke with military sources that say the team, called Joint Special Operations Task Force-Gulf Coordinating Council (JSOTF-GCC), is on the ground to instruct local troops in special operations. This is the first time the U.S. has acknowledged the existence of the team.
Ackerman admits there is no proven connection to the Iranian scientist who was assassinated several days ago, and says many special-ops guys dismiss the news, saying that the new task force is simply there to advise and any connection to Iran will be “indirect at most.”
Which doesn’t make it any less interesting to add to the pile of rumors and tensions piling out of the Persian Gulf, but there are special forces teams assigned to hot-spots all over the world, and the public generally has no clue at all.
From that second onward, I knew I was listening to pure unadulterated bull from a carefully coached neocon stooge using his military service to sell out his country. There is no bigger veteran supporter than Jesse Ventura. There is also no bigger enemy to the crooks that have used our military against our own country than Ventura.
This is why Jesse is the real hero and why he is feared.
THE MOST POWERFUL SINGLE PIECE OF JOURNALISM IN AMERICAN HISTORY
YouTube – Veterans Today -
The claim by a Kris Kyle seems a bit hollow. Those who know Jesse claim he never would have said it. The story goes like this, back in 2006, Jesse Ventura went into a bar he frequents in Coronado, CA. This “Kyle” character says Jesse was “badmouthing the war. The mythology begins:
Kyle then claims he decked Ventura, a former pro-wrestler, and “ran out of the building.” The run part I understand. Everything else is unsupported. What is supported is that “Kyle” has a book out claiming he is a great war hero, a sniper who killed hundreds of “insurgents” in Afghanistan.
I know a bit about stuff. Part of my time in Vietnam was spent as a sniper. In real life, and this is how we have to be, snipers are seen as “backshooting cowards” by the rest of the military. Even with the old equipment we had, I could hit 3 people, “pink mist,” before they knew it from so far away it would take them an hour to get there, terrain as it is.
I didn’t like it, it felt “dishonorable” to me but this is just my opinion. I never had to walk a hundred miles to kill an NVA general and evade trackers for weeks, like I read in books that I suspect are 99% fiction.
Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura tells the Alex Jones Show that the hoax story about Navy SEAL Chris Kyle punching him in a bar, an incident which never happened, may be part of an establishment backlash against Ventura for supporting presidential candidate Ron Paul.
The controversy began last week when US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle appeared on numerous television shows, primarily to brag about how many Iraqis he had killed as a sniper and to promote his new book.
Kyle claims that he met Ventura in a bar in Coronado in 2006 while Ventura was in town to speak to a new class of SEAL graduates at nearby Naval Amphibious Base Coronado. Also present were family members holding a wake for Michael Mansoor, one of the first SEALs killed in Iraq. Kyle claims Ventura began loudly objecting to the war in Iraq before calling the troops “murderers” and saying “we deserved to lose a few guys”.
Kyle then claims he punched Ventura, knocked him to the floor, and quickly fled the scene.
