Corrupted Politics

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - July 25, 2012
Host: George Noory
Guests: Jeffery Sealing, Jesse Ventura

Appearing during the middle two hours, former wrestler, actor, governor, and bestselling author, Jesse Ventura, shared his contention that the ineptitude and gang-like mentalities of both the Republicans and the Democrats have allowed corporations, businesses, and politically-motivated wealthy individuals to manipulate elections, and silence the average American voter. The Democrats and Republicans deliberately discourage third party candidates, and make it difficult for them to participate in the presidential debates, he noted. These two big parties are "very much like pro-wrestling," he commented. "In front of the public they're adversaries and they're going to kill each other, while behind the scenes they're working together-- they're business partners."

The two-party system keeps people stupid, with conservatives automatically voting for Republicans, and liberals voting for Democrats, without considering the individual merits of each candidate, he continued. In the upcoming November presidential election, it doesn't matter who wins-- we'll still get the same policies, he argued (Ventura said he is supporting the Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson). If Ventura were President, among the things he said he'd do is close America's foreign military bases, enact campaign finance reform to eliminate the "system of bribery," and abolish income tax and switch to a national sales tax.

He also spoke about the mysterious death of past C2C guest Dr. Fred Bell, who the day before he died of a heart attack, had flown to Minnesota to tape a whistle-blower segment on free energy for Ventura's TV show, Conspiracy Theory. Off the record, Bell told him that he had a CIA handler who was going to go ballistic when he found out about the interview. Further, Ventura reported that all 8 episodes of Season 3 of his series were completed by November 2011, but have yet to air.

The last hour of the show featured Open Lines.

Cryptid Research

First hour guest, cryptozoologist Jeffery Sealing talked about his research into various creatures such as the Chupacabras, Bigfoot, the Jersey Devil, and huge birds. While some animals with mange have in recent years been called chupacabras, the classic description for this creature is something between a kangaroo and a gargoyle, with a lip-less mouth, sharp fangs, huge lid-less red eyes, and spikes on their back, he detailed. Should you sight a cryptid, try to remain calm, and if you have a digital camera turn the GPS feature on when you take a photograph, in order to mark location data, Sealing suggested.

News segment guests: Dr. Peter Breggin, Jim Berkland
