Jesse Ventura has gone off the grid in Mexico to escape drones. The former professional wrestler and Minnesota Governor told a CNBC journalist that he moves about with his television show so that drones cannot find out where he is.
The former Minnesota Governor hosts an Ora TV show entitled simply, Off the Grid. Jesse Ventura told the reporter that he is able to produce the television show while still remaining off grid because he utilizes solar power to reach a satellite.
Ventura had this to say about going off grid:
“I view the United States today much like East Berlin. And I’m off the grid. I’ve tried for 20 years to warn the country about the Democrats and the Republicans and nobody’s listening. I now view the United States from the outside, and I don’t like what I see. You know what the favorite t-shirt was off the grid down here a couple of years ago? A picture of George Bush, and it said weapon of mass destruction. Is that the way we want the United States portrayed throughout the world? I don’t think so.”
The former professional wrestler reportedly ignored a question from the reporter when asked how one acquires the Internet while living off the grid. Ventura also chastised the role money plays in our modern political system. According to the former elected official, his campaign raised less money than he actually made while in office. His new television show is not about making money, according to statements made during the interview.
Jesse Ventura had this to say about his finances:
“I don’t need the money. I’ve made the money. I don’t need no more money. I can live right now and my family until I die. I’m solving problems. I’m a job creator. And I’m not only creating jobs, putting Mexicans to work, I’m stopping them from running across the border now and taking our jobs.”
The Off the Grid television host also tackled the topic of income inequality during the interview. Ventura blames the perceived problem on both political parties. “When a new child is born today, and they take their first breath of air, they’re already $50,000 in debt,” Ventura said.
Ventura’s tv show airs Tuesday through Friday on Ora Tv. A promotional clip from the show features Jesse Ventura asking the audience to free their minds and stay vigilant. He is reportedly an hour away from any type of electricity or phone service.
