In his first episode of ‘Off the Grid’ on RT America, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura takes on the hot topics of the day, including corporate fascism, religious freedom laws, how the government spies on cell phones and medical marijuana.
“Stand up for your rights! It’s time to boycott Indiana? Secret trade deals and government encryption!” That’s how Ventura kicks off his new-to-RT show.
The former professional wrestler, Minnesota governor and Navy SEAL takes a closer look at the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) calling on Americans to support a constitutional amendment that would say corporations do not have the same rights as people. To Ventura, the TPP ‒ a free-trade agreement being negotiated by businesses instead of politicians and largely in secret ‒ is just one more example of increasing fascism in the United States.
