Jesse Ventura Withdraws Trump Support with Epic Post: ‘He’s going against the people’s will’

Former Governor Jesse Ventura, of Conspiracy Theory fame, has officially withdrawn his support of President Donald Trump.

The last straw for Ventura was the Trump administration’s recently announced war on legalized marijuana.

Ventura wrote,

I thought Donald Trump ran his campaign as “a man of the people.” Someone who vowed to end the corporate takeover of our government, someone who vowed to bring jobs back. Even thinking about reversing state law and making legalized recreational marijuana illegal is going against the people’s will. This is going against job creation and a reliable part of a state’s economy. The citizens of these states VOTED to make recreational marijuana legal. It wasn’t the politicians, it was WE THE PEOPLE. Obviously President Trump is following in the footsteps of every president that came before him: he thinks the Government knows what is best for us. He’s been president for a little over a month, and he’s already forgotten that “We the People” are the Government! AND he’s planning on reinstating private prisons? Let’s connect the dots: Private prisons need to be 80 – 90% full to be profitable. If they aren’t, then states pay a fine. Non-violent drug offenders make it possible for private prisons to be full. Reverse legalized recreational marijuana, and private prisons will remain full. That’s his plan, people.

Eight states have fully legalized marijuana at this point, and another 17 are in the process. Not only do 59% of Americans feel that marijuana should be fully legalized, but a whopping 71% also believe the federal government should respect the rights of the states where voters do choose to legalize it.

The thousands of angry responses to Ventura’s post prove that.

This is one place where Trump will lose support across the board. The president can say he’s for state’s rights all day long, but that isn’t going to amount to much if he fills his administration with people like Sessions who directly contradict him in actual practice.

    AAAHHH Jessie didn’t get a job in the administration now he is upset

    • Lewie Paine

      He was probably waiting for the Repugs to show their progressive colors.

    • Ventura strikes me as genuinely motivated by concern for freedom.
      He may not have sorted his belief system out fully.
      But his heart appears to be in the right place.

      • tgmoney

        I realize now his sour grapes was Sessions coming out against legal marijuana

  • Uncle Sham

    They haven’t said anything about what they are going to do regarding legalized weed other than they themselves don’t like to smoke weed. Lol.

      Right here on the Sheeple. In his confirmation hearing Sessions said that if Congress didn’t get off it’s rump and change the laws regarding Hemp then he would be enforcing the existing laws. Trump ran his campaign on being “Law and Order” with that being enforced. I don’t see why this news is surprising for anyone.

      Get that do nothing Congress and Senate to rush legalization through on the federal level and the problem is solved.

      • Uncle Sham

        The thing that has me confused is that Trump, Sessions, and Spicer are all SAYING different things regarding this issue…as far on what they actually end up DOING….is anyone’s guess. I think most even on the right would realize that cracking down on this is political suicide

      • Phil_Ossifer

        The best way to get an unpopular law changed is to vigorously enforce it. Up till now it was, “Well, we’ll look the other way for the most part but we still will engage in selective prosecution.” Legalization will get rid of the potential for selective prosecution and also free up resources for more important and more popular things – like enforcing immigration laws. Could be that’s what Sessions and Trump actually want, to get Congress off their dead ass and actually DO something about a law that nobody but the play-for-pay politicians like.

        I read an article a few weeks ago that stated that the DEA “DECLARED” hemp seeds a schedule 1 narcotic…
        Correct me if i’m wrong, and I very well might be, but I thought that the DEA can arbitrarily declare a substance Schedule 1,2,3 or nothing at all. If so, and if the brass at the top of DEA are directed by the president to decriminalize marijuana, couldn’t this issue be solved without the involvement of the political critters on The Hill…?

  • Innocuous

    The Left always meddling in people’s personal lives. The Right is no different.

  • This guy is either ignorant or a fan of tax slavery. Repeal of laws in general is the way of freedom dude. No laws are necessary. No taxes are necessary. Repeal don’t legalize. Then nobody is in violation of anything and everybody is free. Get it? Only greedy control freaks make laws. Only sheeple support lawmakers.

  • freefall

    This is what is being taken away:
    “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
    But the side against the issue never cares until they lose their rights over something they care about. In this way, we are herded into slavery.

  • celticreeler

    I think it’s somewhat regrettable that the people’s hunger for the freedom that they’ve lost has been manifested in “legalize marijuana,” which certainly a worthy idea. But an even BIGGER idea is this: what about the wage slavery and debt slavery every single solitary adult is shackled to, through the IRS and the Fed/central banks?

    Gosh, there are a couple generations’ worth of people who don’t even have any concept of what they’re deprived of, thanks to the electronic idiot box and most of the public “schooling.”

    • g.johnon

      legalization and decriminalization of marijuana is but one of many issues regarding liberty and we the people’s concern for government overreach.

      it is important and needs to be addressed as such. as do jails for profit, militarization of state and civil law enforcement, the multinational corpo-bankster overthrow of our republic and their wars for profit misusing our military to fight them and our money to fund them.
      these fancy ass vampire rats will not be voted out, they will not be bought out and they will not be ordered out. they need to be put out in a manner ensuring they will not return.

  • Cynical Old Bastard

    LMAO.

    Jesse Ventura is a little Hollywood bitch. Everybody knows that. Duh. That’s why he hides out in Mexico.

    Nothing can be “taken” away from the People. You can only give it away… and some of us aren’t willing to do that.

    LOL.

    You can talk and whine all you want to about all those folks but when it comes right down to it you’re the ones to blame.

    But you’ll be alright… maybe. Doubt it though. Should be fun to watch.

    Other things I find fun to watch… packs of dogs killing Boars in a swamp.

    • g.johnon

      man, you let the dogs at em, there goes some fine bacon!

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        Ya gotta take the bad with the good. I like to think of it as pre-tenderized and lead-free.

    • Elaine.Benes, II

      What about packs of spoiled, pampered, and beautiful Maine Coon cats and kittens who got put out for sporting micro-chips attacking a gang of scavenger BBQ chicken eating turkey buzzards? Would that be fun to watch?

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        LMAO.

        I would pay money for front row seats on that!

  • M_111

    Waaah.

  • Mike

    Jessie, you lost your mind a long time ago. Trump is doing exactly what the people elected him to do with a few exceptions, and those exceptions are not all his fault. Not to mention the fact that he has only been in office for a little over a month and has to still weed out the rest of the obama staffers and clean up the huge mess that obama left.

    • g.johnon

      not really one of the brighter bulbs are ya?

      • Mike

        well, we know you are not.

        • g.johnon

          we? its just you and that dick in your hand.

          • Elaine.Benes, II

            Now now G.

          • g.johnon

            too much?

          • Mike

            oh, you looking at yourself in the mirror when you say that right? Thanks for trying.

      • Elaine.Benes, II

        You so funny…

  • D.Moore

    Jessie so upset then he needs to start a POT movement put your money where your mouth is Jessie, get it legalized

  • tgmoney

    I know he is. I like him. Actually I think he is just upset. That doj wants to take away leagalized pot. Trump is for freedom well about as much of it as he can deliver. From the United States corporation without the via coming in and taking him out right at the Oval Office desk Let’s be real.

  • vippy

    He is! He said something about lobbyists. So far so good. What I don’t like is the criminalization of people with marijuana by Jeff Sessions. We need to deal with hemp and save the earth from plastics!

  • tgmoney

    Trump is pro police state? Do you realize we are in a complete police state from Obama? I cant think of anything Trump did that would justify identifying him as pro police state, I mean he didnt enact the patriot act or renew it. He didnt iniciate the chip in our credit cards to track all our purchases, he didnt increase mass survailance on the people, he didnt attack free speech. I he has only been there a month and he is working to unravel everything Obama did that is holding americans back from getting ahead. Give me an example im open to hearing your thoughts because personally I cant see how you come to that conclusion

  • Renee Ciccioni

    Go figure empty private prisons no body is making any money and money is all that matters.
