Jesse Ventura Says He’s Hiding From Drones In Mexico (VIDEO)

Former Minnesota governor and conspiracy theory enthusiast Jesse Ventura detailed his current whereabouts Tuesday in perhaps the most Jesse Ventura way possible.

“I’m off the grid. I move about with my TV show so that the drones can’t find me and you won’t know exactly where I am as long as we have solar power and we can reach the satellite,” Ventura said during an appearance on CNBC’s “Closing Bell.”

“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 Republicans and nobody’s listening from the inside looking out. Now I’m doing it on the outside looking in. I now view the United States from the outside and I don’t like what I see.”

According to Politico, Ventura said he was doing the interview from an “undisclosed location in Mexico.” He was promoting his OraTV show called — you guessed it — “Off The Grid.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
