Ventura Looks Into Mind Control

Former Gov. Jesse Ventura’s "Conspiracy Theory" debuts at 9 p.m. Wednesday on TruTV (formerly Court TV) by investigating a government program said to be designed to control people’s minds.

TruTV says: "In a remote region of Alaska, a special government research center is said to be testing the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, which, some believe, allows radio waves to be developed as a potential weapon. If true, these radio waves could be used to change the weather and control people’s minds. Jesse and his team head to the last frontier to investigate, but nervous security guards try to stop them at the gate of the facility and keep them from finding the real purpose first-hand. The team also talks to a scientist who demonstrates how radio waves can be used to literally move clouds."

Future shows are to look into the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, which occurred while Ventura was Minnesota’s chief executive officer. He also plans to look into global warming and whether the world will end in 2012. Ventura and investigators are to look into many conspiracy theories, although Ventura told the Los Angeles Times that he doubts the show ever will be broadcast.

While governor, Ventura often talked about his favorite conspiracy theory, whether Cuban leader Fidel Castro had a hand the John F. Kennedy assassination. When he visited Castro, he asked and the Cuban dictator said he was not involved. That conspiracy theory is not on the show’s schedule — yet, at least.
