        You call yourself a journalist Piers? What a joke. We can all agree to disagree but when you are so closed minded that you not only refuse to listen to different views from your guest but then feel it necessary to be insulting and degrading, you aren't worthy of my time. Mr. Ventura has credentials that blow you out of the water and has earned the right to be shown respect, especially from a loser like you!!!

        Piers Morgan just made me realize how much we need back a "Larry King." Having an open mind and maintaining some level of objectivity seems to have alluded Piers. You just lost me as a fan.....guests shouldn't be called naive, especially if they have knowledge you might not possess. Respect opinions.

        Well Said My true fellow Americans! Why does he live int he U.S? Morgan wasnt this agressive about all those Treyvon Martin interviews! Jess Ventura's offended reaction to Morgan was so funny,having the nerve to call a guest unstable?

        Morgan is a weak interviewer, and that style of interviewing is pervasive where he is from in England. LOL When Ventura said...” So you would rather be in a theatre with no gun, when a crazy person is on a rampage?" The stupid look on Mr. Morgan’s face was "PRICELESS" I Think Morgan does his show for the English, so you can all "have a bloody go of a laugh". There is no way CNN or Mr. Morgan is trying to tell the American viewers that this show is very Pro-American, through someone who isn’t a naturalized citizen. NEW FLASH: England has its far share of crime and scandal!! You not only insulted Jess Ventura, nut all AMERICANS WHO WATCHED THIS INTERVIEW! This should be a case study in colleges about how not to conduct an interview!!!!

      I think the swiss have the right idea. Everyone spends time in the military to learn the use of weapons and responsibility. In the US, we buy the weapon, receive minimal training on safety then away we go. I almost shot my dad once as a kid right after receiving the hunters safety course. I was too much into the TV show "Combat" and was "playing" with a 22 rifle when somehow the safety came off right after I had pretended my father was a spy and pulled the trigger. The next time I pulled the trigger it went off at a tree. Scared the hell out of me. That was the best weapon safety lesson I have ever had.

        Ventura is mostly mouth, but I've watched his television show and am impressed by his independent mindset. You need people to second guess and challenge the establishment. If you become rich enough once or twice in your life you get exposed to strange people and a side of government that is shocking and hard to believe. There are some corrupt nasty people in positions of power that have amoral views and tremendous power.

        I watched the interview with Jesse and got the impression that Morgan was only asking questions so he could say his own point of view. It is funny that he is for gun control considering during WW2 England had gun control and had to ask the US to send them weapons so they could defend themselves from the Germans. Jesse was telling a fact when he said the 2 amendment was so Americans could defend themselves from a government that was out of control. This right will never be infringed, no matter what any country or person may think. Let those who don't like guns live without them, and those who like guns own them, I prefer to own guns.

      Jesse Ventura is a refreshing voice of the truth being told in America. Why can't the Democrats and Republicans take a page out of his book and utilize it. The reason is why they won't because they cannot tell the American public the truth.

    Thank you for having Mr Ventura on your show.

    Sadly our Western Leaders and the media has played a deliberate and violent roll in rest of the world for hundred of years by occupying most of the world. The world order has started to change .The rest of the world does not need Christianity and it's handouts. Even the Christians can't trust there children in churches. Just look at all the offshoots of cults that keep popping up like the Mormons by a criminal Jon D. Lee? Has the West forgotten how the treated the Chinese by forcing them to become opium addicts? Have the forgotten how  they treated the Indians in India ? Or how they treated the native Americans, Africans, South Americans ? Or the people in 
    Tahiti or New Guinea? And the indigenous people in Australia and New Zealand? 
     
    Today what we are seeing is what we planted regurgitating in the Middle East. Unfortunately Chris and the Seals who's names that will be soon erased by another violence why? Has the world forgotten why the two world wars were fought, it was about the Jewish people who were treated with no respect. What are the Zionist doing now? It's not about Islam or Christianity. It's about social justice and equality in the middle east. What goes around had come to haunt us.

      Jesse is an enigma. He is right on some things and states them clearly but then produces some real nutty conspiracy theories worthy of Rush Limbaugh. He thinks that if he was in the 10th row of the Colorado theater with a gun and everyone running in panic, he could have done something. No need to get rid of assault weapons just send a few Jesses to every movie. He would make a terrible president though and runs off the rails far too easy.

        What few Americans know about England is that their sentencing for crime fits the crime and isn't subject to having years shaved off for good behavior. In the US, we sentence 20 years for something then let the criminal out in a few years. If criminals knew they would get 20 years for the commision of a crime using a gun and wouldn't get out a day earlier, they might think twice about using a gun. In our country, if you have a clean record then use a gun to rob a convienience store, you might be given a reduced sentence and then get off even earlier because you were a good boy in jail. The criminal fingures it's worth the risk. I am an American who believes in our right to defend ourselves with a gun but we have to change our sentencing laws to reasonably fit the crime and then make the criminal serve the entire sentence. I don't personally feel there is any reason anybody should need to own an assault rifle or rapid fire maching gun.

      Actually, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has chosen not to run solely because of all the CORRUPTION in the US Government !! Truth of the matter, even if Jesse Ventura did run and win, an Independent President working with either a Democratic or Republican-controlled Congress would lead us to more gridlock, more commonly known as a "Do-Nothing" Congress. We would need an Independent President and Independent majority in both the House and Senate to see any improvement in Washington, DC.

    I pose only one very simple question. Who would you vote for?

    A. A candidate who has ran and owned a business, and is campaigning for President and spending his own money.

    B. A candidate who has never ran a business and is campaigning for re-election and has ’unlimited access’ to your hard earned income tax dollars.

      I agree with your comment whole Heartedly. Based on Ventura comment that it takes 4-5 years for fiscal policy to impact economy once implemented; I guess he would have to argue that Bush inherited a tech bubble and housing crisis from CLINTON: would like to hear Ventura comment on that.

    The Quote of the Decade:
    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
    ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
    Pass it on 'till eternity..
    (...it was so nice of him to give us this great quote for posterity!)

        Good point Sal. I noticed that when Jesse informed Piers of the BBC report during 9-11 that all Piers could do is try to defend the BBC's integrity. If Piers studied 9-11 for so long why did he not respond to Jesse by saying something like, "I heard of that report and found it false" or "I will look into what you stated and see if it is a fact or misinformation". Any one of us has lcense to dispute what someone states. But to argue against something without bringing forth facts or the opporunity to do so, is not ultimately seeking the truth.

    It is ironic that in accusing 47% or more of Americans as playing the roll of victims living off government handouts, Mitt Romney is trying to portray his wealthy donors as the REAL victims, paying for all of those irresponsible folks.

      If you know ANYTHING about Loose Change you are aware that the firefighters and policeman interviewed stated that explosions were going off below ground and throughout the buildings and elevators came UP not down with people that had skin dripping off their bodies and they stated they were below. Any fool knows jet fuel is glorified kerosene and no fuel can burn hot enough to melt steel. And there is no commercial jet that only has a 16 ft diameter, no wings, and capable of complete disintegration of the entire plane, luggage, human bodies, and all debris. It is so surprising that the Pentagon damage just happened to be exactly where the records were being kept on the $2.1 trilion dollars that Rumfeld said couldn't be accounted for while speaking on the national news 9/10/01. A plane crashing in PA is a big crock also and people have fallen for all this because the media said this is how it happened. There are 9 of the 15 so called dead terrorists alive and well. The only FACT is thousands of people died by the hands of the ELITE who rule this country and world and we the people better pull ours heads out of our butts and start gaining control of our country and lives again. Piers Morgan is stupid puppets for the elite and desparate for a job. I also have the BBC clip announcing building 7 fell but it is still standing over their left shoulder. They finally brought it down 20 minutes later. Take a little time to find out what was in #7; you might understand why they destroyed it too.

    Refreshing to see Jesse tackle important subjects that too few politicians are addressing in an unbiased light and challenging people to seek the truth with facts, logic and common sense. Jesse is correct in stating that American should not be a two party system and should be open to independent thinking as opposed to strict party lines.He also believes that elections controlled by money instead of the will of the people as a whole should be seriously addressed with actions instead of empty rhetoric once and for. There is not one person i have come across that does not believe otherwise. Our democracy has long been hijacked by lobbyist, special interests and some notable billionaires.

    Mr. Ventura said that the war in Viet Nam between the North and South was "also" caused by religion conflict, when he tried to make the case that "all wars are from differences in religion". Being Vietnamese, and against the Communism, I cannot say that he is so wrong. He was a Navy Seal during the VietNam War and he still did not learn anything from that war. He was naive during the war and continue to be ignorant at this age when he made such statement. He does not make any sensible point

I have always admired you but now to find out that you seem to be the only person in the US that did know that the Bush administration was warned by over 30 other countries prior that 9/11 was imminent. Through intelligence outlets in their respective countries it was reported after 9/11 that other countries had intercepted messages from Al Queda about planes that were to crash into the world trade center buildings and that every one of these countries had reported their intelligence findings to George, Dick and Condi... in other words to deaf ears. Condi even lied about it in a 9/11 hearing. This is well known to many millions of Americans and others worldwide...

    I can't help but wonder why Mr. Ventura is not more of an activist, challenging the status quo daily. I'd like for him to be more of a patriot and press his causes and beliefs on a nationally organized level! Aside from his 911 conspiracy beliefs and his atheism....he has a very good feel for what is wrong in this country and some very positive ideas on how to fix them. He is very good at pointing out what is broken....but doesn't seem all that motivated, other than his occasional talk show appearances, to go and fight for his ideals. I, for one, would like to get him out of Mexico and would gladly help organize a national front to forward his ideas.

    This post is for the producers of Piers Morgan Tonight: I tried to give Piers Morgan a try when the show first started and I hated it. I didn't like how Piers talked more than the guests and how many questions were asked and how much bio info was provided. I watched the Conan interview because I love Conan and I was very disappointed. Piers read me his bio and I didnt get to hear from Conan as much as I would have liked. I then tuned in last night for Tony Robbins because I love Tony Robbins. I was again disappointed with the show. You made Tony read an insane amount of bio info and accomplishments on the guests that I could have googled myself. Then once again you had Tony ask the guests an insane amount of questions and did not allow them give in depth answers. The final showcase with the three of them was an absolute joke with the time that was left. Tonight I watched the interview with Jesse Ventura. I finally got to see what the British people have known for quite a while, that Piers Morgan is a genius! Piers did what Shawn Hannity and so many other journalist could never do, he stood up to Governor Ventura and put him in his place when he was way off base. Piers let the Governor talk and give his rants, which is his right, but Piers stopped him in his tracks with the 9/11 conspiracy nonsense. Piers did the same with gun control. He allowed the Governor to have his opinion, but Piers then called him out on it with facts. Piers also stood up for himself when the Governor tried to call him out for not being an elected official (like that somehow means he cannot debate). Then the show got boring again, in my opinion, when Piers went back his script. LET PIERS OFF THE SCRIPT! He is a brilliant man with great opinions and a steel backbone (from what I could see tonight). The 9/11 and gun control segments from tonight equaled great TV in my opinion and I will continue to tune in if the show is more like this and less like the Conan interview with little substance and the Tony Robbins night, trying to cram three brilliant men into a one hour time slot and expecting viewers to learn anything more than one liners. This is just my opinion obviously, thank you for allowing me this space to share it with you. GREAT SHOW TONGHT!

      Bobby, you have no clue. It makes one wonder if you are getting paid to say this.
      Have you never heard of the CIA report 1965 Indonisia The Coup that Backfired" where the CIA admits the genocide of 800,000 or the book "Deadly Deceits" by Ralph McGehee author of the same CIA report where he publicized it?
      Have you heard of the 1971 Pentagon Papers? Have you heard of the 1975 Senator Church's report on Covert Affairs? Have you heard of Operation Northwoods project. If you have heard of them, Have you ever bothered to find out what they say inside??? You either have no clue about your world, or you are paid to suggest this crap to others. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the United States planned and carried out the attacks on 9.11. There is more evidence to that truth then there ever has been that shows Carlos Marcello or George Herbert Walker Bush or Both were responsible for the murder of John F Kennedy. Wake Up. Go Back to school and stop being a part of the problem.

        And Operation Mockingbird, where the CIA infiltrated the media. Piers Morgan has a bio right here on this site and was an employee of Rupert Murdoch of Mordor. Murdoch and "Lord" Jacob Rothschild are zionist buisness partners in a shale oil venture in Israel. Murchoch and FOX = Fascist Orwellien Xenophobes, have done more to destroy the integrity and economy of this nation than all the so called "terrorists" combined. Everyone should find the Youtube where David Rockefeller is speaking before the Council of Foreign Relations and thanking the Washington Post, and New York Times et al for essentially providing cover for the globalist agenda and I'll let readers of this fill in the blank as to what you think that agenda is.

    Piers,
    I appreciate you having Jesse on. It is good to have alternative views. I take offense to the labeling of his 9-11 views as coo-koo. Having studied the physics, much of the evidence points to a need for a deeper investigation. The conspiracy theories may be coo-koo, but the science pointing to "other than" reported stories is not. It is founded in basic physics, things we learned in high school... Speed of falling objects... Melting temperature of steel... These are basic facts. The evidence points to strange anomalies in the physics based on "the official story". This is science. Coo-koo is to avoid the science based on official explanations. Best to ya. Love your show.

      Yes, physics don't lie, the buildings were professionally demolished. One of the main reasons can be found by going to History Commons Complete 9/11 Timeline and finding Pipeline Politics. That can be backed up with a Congressional record transcript of Unocal VP John J. Maresca testifying about the vast oil and gas resources in the Caspian Sea basin and talking about the possible routes out to global markets. He finally stated that the Turkemenstan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India route was the most desirable. He also called for the US govt to remove the Taliban from power and he also called for a reversal of Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act that calls for the US taxpayer to fund the infrastructure rebuild in Azerbaijan to that US and global energy companies can extract their booty to world markets. To verify this also see the leadership and members of the US Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce, PNAC on steroids.

    Sorry Piers, Comparing the U.S. to any _single_ European country is simply unfair. The United states has a population of 314,397,000 (%62+), the European Union has a population of 503,492,041. Approximately 4x the population of Germany alone.

    Maybe if the Irish had guns, the Brits would have spent a little less time there?

    When referring to the shooting in Colorado, psychopathy cares not about means. Remove the guns it will simply revert to some other methodology. Guns are the symptom, not the disease!

    I thought tonight's interview with Jesse Ventura on the Piers Morgan show was very interesting and exciting. Some of Jesse's remarks I agree with, i.e., President Obama inherited a total mess and that people seem to forget the money that was spent on Iraq during the Bush administration, the US policing the world, etc. Also, I am glad that Jesse mentioned that former President Bush and former VP Dick Cheney were absent in Tampa for obvious reasons, (the Gop wanted to distance them because of their unpopular policies while in office). However I disagree with the comments that Jesse said about gun control, 911 and about the former navy seal who wrote the book about the Bin Laden raid. Finally, I thought Piers Morgan equaled Jesse with the debate and gave him a run for his money. Very interesting hour, please have more of this!

    Piers Morgan would do well to realize the audience wants to hear the guest's responses. He rarely lets a guest finish an answer. Maybe he should just not have a guest so he is more free to ramble. His constant interrupting is rude and self serving.I am a Vietnam combat vet and enjoy hearing Jesse question the powers that be. Remember how we were fed the "Domino Theory"to justify the Vietnam war buildup.Quite ironic that these communist powers that would take over the world if we did not stop them in Vietnam are now financing our current wars and more. More needs to come out about the Bush administration's ignoring of overwhelming intelligence preceding 9-11. I don't believe they necessarily wanted a terrorist attack. they were just negligent and obsessed with the run up to invade Iraq.

Who is Piers Morgan to say that if this psychopath couldn't have bought a gun legally that he wouldn't have obtained one illegally or used one an IED that he had sitting around his apartment? Being Naive is never the answer nor do gun laws apply to crazy psychopaths. It's not like they'll say well that's against the law and change their twisted logic

    Piers should be reminded that we fought "the spread of Communism" in Korea and Vietnam. Hundreds of thousands were killed and wounded. Now our businessmen feel free to trade and outsource jobs to Communist China, the backers of the two wars mentioned above. Piers is most likely representing the Bank of England's interest here in the US. Jesse is right on all counts. We spend more than 51 percent of every federal tax dollar on the military for what? To protect private oil and gas interests so they can sell their stolen booty to Communist China.

    Ventura is right about Marine Major General Smedley Butler – and Dwight Eisenhower for that matter – in their criticism of American military adventurism.

    He's also right that Piers' apples-and-oranges comparison of WWI and WWII cannot compare to the elective militarism which has been the habit of American warmaking. Even if you (generously) believe that the Cold War concerns about the domino theory (Korea, Vietnam, etc) were necessary to some degree, the larger point still stands that the United States enters into wars which it simply has no need to.

    This position is shared by Ron Paul, Jesse Ventura, Ralph Nader, Noam Chomsky, and many others on ALL (not "both") sides of the American political experience. Alas, the theory of Hallin's spheres of media reminds us that in popular media, there are "The sphere of consensus, the sphere of legitimate controversy, and the sphere of deviance." At present, Jesse Ventura's position is in the sphere of legitimate controversy, yet gets very little coverage in the corporate media.

He is the mainstream media we all deplore because they have diminished to servile agents of the global elite and refuse to cover real news stories. I am at surprised his program directors told him to put an honest and courageous man like Jesse Ventura on the air. I believe that the American people, and people all over the world, are prone to goodness toward their fellow man, if not for the confusion, disinformation and divisivness constantly inundating them from the corporate owned media.

    Mr. Morgan, you failed to mention that President Obama is partying with Beyonce and Jay-Cee and the top hob nobs among the elite society. You failed to mention the Middle East is on fire and approximately 20 countries are burning his picture and our flag in protest. You failed to mention this country is 16 Trillion in debt and our President has been unable to turn it around. You failed to mention people are out of work in record numbers since the Great Depression.
    Every president inherits from the previous president and President Obama said he would fix everything but has not.
    You did not play all of Governor Romney's tape, which is factually correct. Jesse Ventura makes no sense and seems to have taken too many hits to the head when he was in wrestling. You did not point out the problem of voter fraud in this country and that one congresswoman is being indicted for voter fraud, voting twice in two states, among the voter fraud that has taken place in Minnesota which elected Al Franken. Come on., how about fair and balanced? Please, have someone on your show who is not a fanatic. Shameful.Let Ventura go back to Mexico where he seems more comfortable. Why give this idiot prime time?We need serious journalism. In fact, Ventura was not liked in Minnesota and realized what a mistake they had made by electing him. Oh my. He's worse than Bill Mahr.

Germany pays for students University degrees and gives enough money to pay for rent and most food requirements. Nothing in America provides this to every student as it does in Germany!!!

        My girlfriend is going to school in Germany because it is FREE!!! FREE FREE!! If it didn't cost an arm and two legs for college tuition in America she could come here. Even Americans can take classes in Germany for free if they desire!

        On top of a Bachelor's degree being free for my girlfriend in Germany she also gets around 650 Euro per month! From the government plus another couple hundred from other support that gets funneled through the amazing system Germany has.....

        Jesse Ventura thank you! For mentioning the ridiculous amount of army occupation America takes as well.. In my travels to Germany I found it so strange to find an army base 2 blocks from a country side residential neighborhood!!!!! At 11PM at night on a school night the American AND British army are setting off fireworks during certain celebrations. LET ME ASK ANY AMERICAN: Have you experienced a foreign military base celebrate leaving the country with fireworks? Even tho more troops are being flown in to eventually do the same thing when they leave. (These recruits are flown in all the time!)

    Buddy, you need to learn to keep your opinions to yourself and just shut up!! Let your guests speak for God's sake...........

      I completely agree with everyone here about how inappropriate and stupid Piers is in this particular interview–in another word, what an a– Piers made of himself in this interview. He was completely out of line as a host keep cutting Jesse Ventura off with his own idiotic understanding of the events of 9-11. CNN, why on earth you guys have a British guy, who was an ex talent show judge, to host a serious politics/news talk show??? Hello???

    I can't believe that Piers cut off Ventura so much. He does it way too much and the whole point of having guests is to listen to them. Piers does not have an open mind and it was obvious that he felt cornered and frustrated too because of his comment at one point "it's my show and I'll talk" when Jesse was trying to get out a point. I think Jesse Ventura is a breath of fresh air and knows that the corruption in the government is getting worse. Ventura bellieves that the public deserve to know the truth but he also knows that the government would lose control of it's people if the truth got out. Piers knew Ventura had him in a corner and constantly cutting him off only makes the audience more angry with Piers. Ventura works hard to get to the truth even if it gets him in trouble and Peirs being an ex reporter, knows that alot must be covered up. I would love to see Jesse Ventura run for President in 2016. Remember people, Jesse Ventura was waiting to see how Obama tried to clean up the mess that was left to him. 150 years of the same old crap and its time for a change or the cycle will continue.

    When Ventura brought up Building 7 and the BBC clip which can be seen right now on UTube where BBC spilled the beans and predicted the collapse of a building that wasn't hit by any plane and had only small office fires by a half hour, I saw Piers Morgan's face turn to panic and saw him try to steer the conversation away. Piers tried to deny the clip even exists and asks that same silly question in defense they ask of Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld and the rest: "You don't seriously believe they were in on it, do you?" That is their best and only defense. And that defense sucks! BTW, that clip exists on U Tube for anyone who cares to see it. It proves 911 was an Inside Job. Nobody could predict a 47 story building with no reason for falling would collapse and it happens only a half hour later! The BBC and CNN were told it was coming down and that means it had to have been wired. And no building could have been wired in that short a time. It was wired long before 911 happened and that leaves Bin Laden out of it!

      Sam you are correct. The fact that the majority of American people don't understand basic physica and don't care to ask questions about the hundreds of coicidences that all had to come together to make 9/11 happen is astounding and disturbing because it has exposed the American people as thoroughly brainwashed sheep. The irony is that most people, left and right, will tell you they don't trust the mainstream media, yet they won't believe anything that doesn't come from the mainstream media. The motive is clear. Go to History Commons, Complete 9 11 Timeline and find Pipeline Politics. Its all from news sources from around the world and in chronological order. Piers and CNN have exposed themselves as agents in the cover up of the biggest mass murder in US history, and I believe that is TREASON.

    Piers, don't know why u bother trying to educate Americans on guns. they simply will never get it. it is not the laws that need changing it is the American mentality. you can give them the stats from every civilized western country & they will still defend their right to own guns.

    Jesse V was intelligent right up until the last topic...guns. He carries a concealed weapon & said if he was in the theatre he would have taken out the guy. Welcome to the wild west circ 1800.

    Instead of focusing on Colorada how about the other 10,000 per yr murders in the US. Since that incident there have been 100's of murders on the streets of Chicago, New Orleans, Detroit, Philly etc.

    citizens of other western countries don't own guns not because of laws, they don't own guns because of their mentality. It would never occur to me to own a gun, don't know anybody who does. never seen a gun store.

    I don't know why terrorists from other countries come into the states to do harm. Why bother. Just stand by & watch Americans kill each other, again 10,000+ murders per yr.

    Again Piers you are wasting your time. And all you succeed in doing is getting the viewers angry, because you are British & they hate anyone telling them what to do.

One thing we are tired of is bailing out the world, I say let them see what it's like without our money.

        Ok, now you stepped in it. The Coroner of Shanksville, Pennsylvania, has publically stated "to this day we have never found remnants of human blood or bone in that pile of dirt." Reportedly landing in two different places. And an American Airlines Employee whos job it is to log the serial numbers of every plane that lands and takes off, logged that exact plane still in service. "Whoa!" Yes I know. Crazy huh? But what about the people, the families. Have you ever od or examined the Northwoods Project? The plan in the 1960's to start a war with Cuba? Undercover FBI agents who would act as college students would have their plane shot out of the sky after getting dropped off and a drone taking off in its place. True Story. Kennedy fired them for suggesting it. Then Kennedy was killed and the people who were in charge of the investigation, were the same people he fired for starting the Bay of Pigs invasion. The Truth is stranger the fiction. But you have to look into to it if you ever want to be a part of the truthful part of your world.

        Jack how big is shanksville? It must be pretty big to have a state of the art coroner's office with enough clout and clearance to dig through airline reckage in search of bones and blood that survive extreme heat. Sounds far fetched to me, and likely not the big boys who would be called in on this job. Homeland security and TSA wouldnt allow them in the site to begin with, messing with their investigation. Sound like a job for the TSA to bring the coroner body remains, not tons of dirt to sift thru.

    I hope CNN directors are reading these comments. The bulk of them are disgusted with Piers Morgan and the direction of his defense of the bull crap "official story" of 9/11. Instead of an endless parade of fascist corporate water carriers for the failing Federal Reserve/City of London/Bank of England money as debt, war is profitable system, why don't you get a real host who actually wants to dig up the truth about oh, lets start with the Israel Lobby, the US Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce. How about Matt Taibi as a host. How about Cornell West? Media manipulation. Piers is disgusting, worse than the FOX phoneys because he's so arrogant and superior. I'd destroy Piers Morgan in a debate about 9/11. I've studied every aspect of it since 2002 when it became obvious there was something wrong with us getting attacked by the Bin Ladens when GW Bush was bailed out early in his oil career by Salem Bin Laden and the result of the attack saw us go into Afghanistan and restart the pipelines being held up by the Taliban which our CIA created in the 1980s.

    Jesse is the only politician with balls of steal. He is a statesman who cares more for the "people" than his own interests. His True TV show exposes things that we all need to be aware of like HAARP and Solar Storms. I do question one thing though, if the solar storm is really going to wreak havoc on the earth in late 2012, why would he be running in 2016, when we would still be recovering from the event? Or is that his plan? Research suggest that we are going to be aligned with the galaxy's black hole for 12 months so it may not happen until mid 2013. I dont subscribe to "end times", but it is important to be prepared for Mother Earths show.

    Piers,

    I've been a fan of your talk shows. I think you have crossed the line in your interview with Gov. Jesse Ventura though. You were acting completely inappropriate in your role as a host, instead, you were calling names on your quest, because he has a differing opinion than yours. It turned this episode into a political debate at a coffee shop or bar, not an interview. I'm veryn disappointed in you tonight. You are not a political expert, so when you try to "debate" someone who is so well versed in American politics from the time of George Washington such as Gov. Jesse Ventura, don't pretend or kid yourself into believing you are one.

        You know I would love CNN to try and disprove him, could you see them actually doing a mainstream research driven show on HARP, hell just the patent alone proves it. lol Just goes to show how far down the rabbit hold our INVESTIGATIVE journalism goes..

        Of course Pierce hasn't done his research. I too was a fan, It seems he is making the same mistake Romney made by underestimating the power of 47% Many of whom are working full time, legitimately disabled, elderly, ect.. But there has been a propaganda campaign and that is to lump all of us who are the middle class into the welfare recipient.

        When I entered the work force my dad and about everyone Else's fathers were the sole bread winners in my town, mothers stayed home with the kids and perhaps sold cosmetics. When I moved out, minimum wage was just over $3.00 and I was paid 2.95 an hour because my boss couldn't afford to pay the minimum wage, and felt lucky.

        But with that little money, my roommate and I had an apartment, food, party money, college classes, we cruised our GTO's and 4×4's for fun all night long and worked in the morning busting butt, we paid our way, sure we had the "pretty boys" who had parents that were rich but they left town for bigger pursuits, probably to play golf with Romney.

        I can relate to Mr. Ventura, I just wish I could vote for him now.

        We weren't on food stamps and we made it pretty easy.. Fast forward to today, take the government out of the equation, what's left after rent or the house payment for the youth?

    For anyone who thinks that Mr. Ventura would not be able to lead a majority Rep. or Dem led house or senate, think of this. If he won and I was Dem or Rep. I'd think of the votes he took from me, and my base who agrees with him.

    But we never know until we try huh? If we were doing great in this country and our place in the "Global Economy" we wouldn't be having this conversation would we, So I guess he deserves a shot, he's earned it more than anyone I see on the ticket today. Personally I'd love to see him go off in press conferences, wow that would be great actually putting people in their place and exposing their PC BS thought mentality.

I am watching this whole thing unfold and can tell you that you need a dramatic shift in your politics. Jesse Ventura is your man but you will need to drop your arrogance and grow the balls to get him elected.
    Now, don't do the American thing and aim your guns at me. Just perhaps an outsider can see more than you. You guys won/t get back to work until you realize that you are saturated with stuff. You cannot keep making new cars every year while sitting on millions of unsold cars from last year. You cannot import cars from other countires when you cannot sell the ones you make locally.

    I think Mr. Ventura has touched an unsettled core of people who fear looking deeper into painful past events. 911 will not go away because too many questions have been evaded or not answered. There has been no transparency or openness. Something is rotten and more and more people know it. (See the video – 911-Explosive Evidence-airing on PBS).
    Mr. Morgan demonstrated the lowest form of journalism in strategically attempting to discredit Mr. Ventura. It backfired. Mr. Morgan ended up looking like a pathetic shill – a mouth piece for something in the shadows.

    First, Jessie Ventura was never a Seal. He was a member of a Navy underwater explosive demolitions team. He has been trading on this false association for his entire post-military career. Second, Jesse Ventura is a true idiot. I know because he was my governor and I was dumb enough to vote for him. He turned out to be a bully and a garden-variety low-rent with a big mouth and a thin skin. He's a lot like Sarah Palin - someone you just want to go away.

      Hey Brainiac, What do you think Seal teams do?
      If there is one main function of Navy Seal teams it's underwater Demolition.
      They used to be called Frog Men. Saying Underwater Demolition teams are not Seal is like saying, Recon Rangers are just long range walking troops, who take notes on the enemies strength and locations. That Top Gun pilots are just pilots who fly planes very fast and shoot down enemies planes. That Firemen are just guys who put water on fires. You make no sense. If you have no concept of military functions please refrain from speaking on the subject. You need to also watch whos feeding you your talking points. They are making you look like a fool. Seal teams dont usually work in anti-terrorism a law enforcement issue. Seal teams carry out military operations.

    People who support Jesse Ventura don't know him.
    He and his former campaign manager Dean Barkley committed
    bribery to become Governor. One bribe was to get a guy out of their
    Reform Party and the other bribe was to cover up the first bribe after
    two complaints were filed with the Ramsey County attorney.
    Ventura was a lousy governor. He let down his marijuana supporters,
    cancelled the auto emission testing program that was protecting our
    air, and he insulted just about everyone he came in contact with.
    To top it all off you should know that he was never a Navy SEAL,
    never in Vietnam, never in combat. He lied about that and only now
    that I have been hammering away at it has he changed his story.
    Jesse Ventura is a phony guy with a phony name who is a bully,
    briber, insulter and cheat who can't be trusted.
    You can learn the truth about Ventura (Janos) by reading
    "Always Cheat, The Philosophy of Jesse Ventura".
