Publisher's Summary

In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ongoing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people.
For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception. For too long, the mainstream press has refused to consider alternate possibilities and to ask the tough questions. Here, Ventura looks closely at the theories that have been presented over the years and separates the fact from the fiction.
In Ventura's eyes, the murder of Abraham Lincoln and the assassinations of the Kennedys and Martin Luther King all need to be reexamined. Was Watergate presented honestly, or was the CIA involved? Did the Republican Party set out to purposefully steal two elections on behalf of George W. Bush? Has all the evidence been presented about the 9/11 attacks, or is there another angle that the media is afraid to explore? And finally, is the collapse of today's financial order and the bailout plan by the Federal Reserve the widest-reaching conspiracy ever perpetrated?

Lots of things you didn't know but should

Not your typical "conspiracy" type book. Actually well presented and tells truths that most Americans do not know but should.
I lived in MN when Jesse was elected governor. I always thought he had run just to raise the ratings of his radio program and thought he was just as surprised as the media when he actually won. Though he ran as an Independent, in office he acted more like a Republican than he comes across as in this book. If he had acted according to the attitudes he presents here, he would have been begged to governor again. Anyhow, he presents some very interesting facts here that every American should know. For instance, did you know that John Wilkes Booth was not a "lone assassin" when he shot Lincoln? It is known that he was part of a conspiracy and was part of a group that attempted other assassinations that same night, but our history books keep telling the same story over and over. I won't spoil it by telling you some of the more interesting things Jesse reveals. You need to listen for yourself, decide for yourself. You need to be informed -- and if the media won't tell you, maybe you'll let Jesse tell you.
