There's the Freedom of Information Act, and then there's Ventura's way. The official spin on numerous government programs is flat-out bull, according to Jesse Ventura. In this incredible collection of actual government documents, Ventura, the ultimate nonpartisan truth-seeker, proves it beyond any doubt. He and Dick Russell walk listeners through sixty-three of the most incriminating programs to reveal what really happens behind the closed doors. In addition to providing original government data, Ventura discusses what it really means and how regular Americans can stop criminal behavior at the top levels of government and in the media. Among the cases discussed: -The CIA's top-secret program to control human behavior -Operation Northwoods: the military plan to hijack airplanes and blame it on Cuban terrorists -The discovery of a secret Afghan archive, information that never left the boardroom -Potentially deadly healthcare cover-ups, including a dengue fever outbreak -What the Department of Defense knows about our food supply but is keeping mum Although these documents are now in the public domain, the powers that be would just as soon they stay under wraps. Ventura's research and commentary sheds new light on what they're not telling you-and why it matters. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Not very informative....alot of the info was already rumored....photocopied pages were blurry and hard to read. Just skimmed them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carlos Pesantes | 1/11/2014

    " Gift from my wife. Not a lot of substance. I need my conspiracy theorist to provide more mash into my potato. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe Hurst | 1/4/2014

    " This book disturbed me in a major way. I was unaware of so much. I am typically very skeptical of conspiracy theories but this had actual documentation. Crazy stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 12/18/2013

    " I was hoping to like this book a little more because I really like Jesse Ventura. I just wasn't in the mood to read all the government documents so I pretty much just read his summaries. I also wasn't surprised by what I read. I believe the government is corrupt, that people within the government do bad things, that the government thinks money is more important than people, and that government/spy/assassin movies have some truth to them. I'd recommend this book to people who are into politics and like a conspiracy theory. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 12/7/2013

    " Moved it up since I just picked it up for a friend, and my mind seems burned out on fiction at the moment. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leviabowles | 11/16/2013

    " Nothing really earth shattering here-and I actually found myself agreeing with some of the Government's actions that Venture thought the reader should be upset about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Traci | 11/14/2013

    " Actual documentation of the atrocities happening within our government. If you can look past spelling and grammatical errors, this book should fire you up as to how YOUR representatives are representing YOU within the District of Criminals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Benny | 10/30/2013

    " Definitely an eye opener. I mostly read the text in front of the documents to get the gist of the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ravyn | 7/22/2013

    " Good in practice, but impossible to follow as an audiobook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 7/11/2013

    " The title caught my eye. Lots for interesting horrible things our government has done. Unfortunately the grammar is horrible and it reads like a telephone book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 12/4/2012

    " The actual documents are in here - with an explanation from the author; it's quite fascinating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 3/25/2012

    " Interesting collection of government documents that deal with the many unethical actions continually perpetrated by elected officials, the military, and intelligence agencies. "

    " The fact that the 63 documents are available demonstrates that 'We, The Sheeple' have been sleeping (in a Zombie trance, so to speak). This situation results from a well-designed Educational and Propaganda Machine (not unlike that of well-designed wonderful dictatorships). In other words, these 63 public documents have to be told-and-retold so that 'We, The Zombies' never forget (just as National Anthems and Prayers are said everyday - to prevent forgetting what we are supposed to remember). Forgetfulness is a talent that 'We, The Sheeple' seem to have in large quantities and that the members of 'The Royal Elite' seem to use to manipulate us. As for the grammar and other errors pointed out by well-educated readers and listeners, here is what I suggest to think about. I would rather have a brother from The Ghetto telling me The Truth than a polished neofascist (aka neocon) telling me well-articulated lies and telling to "Shut Up" when what I say does not go along The Party Line. All Truth has been eliminated from the media. Only talking heads reach us through the mainstream media which, in turn, does not serve us, society at large, the ones whose tax dollars go to support Warmongering Megalomaniacs instead of supporting the basic needs of society. I give 5 stars on the basis of its Timely Social Value, not because it is Literary Masterpiece. Paraphrasing: In our times, telling The Truth becomes a heroic act. "

    " Audiobook. Interesting, but this is not a scholarly work of investigative journalism. Feels tossed off to make money. De-classified documents introduced very briefly by the author. If you haven't read American Conspiracy, read that instead. It is much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 8/25/2011

    " I'm going to have to read this again as a "real" paper book. The reproduced documents on my e-reader were too hard to read. Interesting material all the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dustin | 6/28/2011

    " Good information, bad presentation on the ebook side though. Some of the documents are entirely too small to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 5/19/2011

    " I hope they reformat it to make it easier to read on a kindle... all the documents are available online "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Brown | 5/19/2011

    " Great book. Lots of revealing information about our government that you'd have no idea was happening behind the scenes if not for this book. "
