he is a self-proclaimed entertainer beyond anything else. What he does is for the purpose of entertainment as a career to feed his family. Admirable but an entertainer is an entertainer.
Was he just 'entertaining' during his stint as Governor? Serious question ... I don't know ... but I bet he took his governorship as seriously as he did his duties as a Navy Seal.
Just sayin' is all.
Surprised no one has mentioned the obvious 'cut-in' where he mentions ATS.

If OTG is not for entertainment purposes, then what purposes does it serve? Seriously.
If someone asks a question about the Bundy fiasco or something of that nature, are we going to get responses that come with links to government sites and serious unbiased discussions that can actually make a difference because of Mr. Ventura's clout and influence? Or are we going to be seeing the same old pissing matches that we see so many important topics die from?

I smell a conspiracy...What if this is just a way for Jesse to
increase his fan base, name recognition, and support, in preparation
for a run for President?.....eh?

What about this? Actually talking with Cliven Bundy.
The intent here, with this collaboration, is to partner with Jesse and his team to help on many, many levels.
1) Another very-popular way for more people to see his videos (we're not getting paid, seriously)
2) A new way for him and his team to understand how we -- ATS members -- have come to care about these topics
3) Help bring attention to brand-new, trending issues for which he and his team should be aware
4) Help with research on really-difficult but really-important topics
5) Support like-minded efforts

It was about bringing maximum awareness to the topics our members care enough about to discuss and creating a civil, collaborative, and intelligence driven venue for that to happen in.
In other words, it was exactly what it is today.
