Seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list: Jesse Ventura tells it like it is, and this time he tackles our government’s biggest secrets.In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ensuing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the government knows and when the government knows it, and what is revealed to the American people and when it is revealed. The media is complicit in these acts of deception, often refusing to consider alternate possibilities and dismissing voices that diverge from public opinion. In American Conspiracies, Ventura looks closely at the theories that have been presented over the years and examines the truth, as well as the lies.
The assassinations of Abraham Lincoln, the Kennedys, and Martin Luther King Jr.—these cases and more need to be re-examined in Ventura’s eyes. Was Watergate presented honestly, or was the CIA involved? Did the Republican Party set out to purposefully steal two elections? Has all of the evidence on 9/11 been presented, or is there another angle that the media is afraid to explore? And finally, is the collapse of today’s financial order and the bailout plan by the Federal Reserve the widest-reaching conspiracy ever perpetrated? Nothing gets by Jesse Ventura in American Conspiracies.

I have read a number of bad reviews of this book, both here and on other websites. And I think that is in large part due to how unwilling some are to accept the fact that their government actually lies to them. If even one of the conspiracies mentioned in this book is true, then why can't others be?
This is a book for people who are free thinkers, certainly, but I would urge anybody to read it. The chapter on 9/11 is certainly eye opening.
Ventura and Russell include quite a number of footnotes documenting where they got their evidence, too.
All in all it makes for a good read. I skipped around the chapters in my first read through, and you will likely do the same.
Jesse goes through each so-called "conspiracy" and illuminates the real facts. In every case there is sound evidence to show that there are powerful forces working against the American people. Excellent read.
Author of: American Heart of Darkness: Volume I: The Transformation of the American Republic into a Pathocracy (Volume 1)
Ventura explains, even complex economic issues like the Meltdown, extremely well by giving the reader much information surrounding the particular event, enough information to, at least to me, see the logic of his thesis. I repeat, I was struck by his presentation because he explained events,that lesser thinkers deride as silliness, in terms that seem so logical. Hugely evil events that, when taken in the context of the perpetrators, seem perfectly logical. They are certainly not numbingly far-fetched like many of the naysayers would have us believe.
So many pieces of the American historical puzzle fit into place perfectly after reading American Conspiracies; it is a book that draws back the establishment's curtain regarding how the American world is run in today's century and by comparison, the rest of the contemporary world.
