In this edition of the Robert Wenzel Show, Jesse Ventura announces he will run for President in 2016. Find out what conditions he will set and what he will do if he does become president. Also Jesse talks the Middle East and the key to his success. 

Apologies for the poor sound quality on this one. We are upgrading the equipment and should be all set with it in two weeks.

Did you miss an episode? Catch up below:


  1. The sound on this one is a bit muddled.

  2. Why no questioning on economics? One question on the Federal Reserve in which Jesse responded, incorrectly, that the constitution bans central banks, but that's it.

    Have you heard Jesse comment on economics? I have. He takes a straight anti-business, government-interventist line. He is much closer to Occupy Wall Street than he is to the Tea Party on such issues.

    I'm glad to see that he has endorsed Gary Johnson, but I don't think they would see eye-to-eye on a great many issues.

    I wouldn't expect a Ventura third-party run, however, I just don't think there's a whole lot of people who actually want him.

  3. You can hear tidbits of his central planning tendencies on the energy department.

    He's a decent guy, just not well schooled in the philosophies of liberty. He's just got good common sense overall. He's probably a little inflated ego wise as well.

    Btw Wenzel, your interviews are getting better. You are still asking the right questions but allowing the interviewee to answer without getting mired in a bunch of BS when they are "wrong".

    This is two in a row where you got through the whole thing without the guest abruptly leaving, ha! Keep it up.

  4. Thanks for the podcast, but I was a disappointed you didn't try to correct him on his statism.

    And honestly, the sound was horrible on both ends. If you tried something different technically, please change back to the way you were doing it previously.
