Jesse Ventura Sets Sights on Wife of Slain Navy SEAL Chris Kyle

In my opinion, the actions of Jesse Ventura are classless and dishonorable.  Chris Kyle is an American Hero and his wife Taya, an amazing woman.  The Kyles have both sacrificed for many amazing selfless causes.  Move on Ventura!

Ventura claims that damages from slain ex-SEAL Chris Kyle’s “American Sniper” continue.

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura is setting his legal sights on the widow of a former Navy SEAL he had sued for defamation.

Lawyers for Ventura have asked a federal court to continue his lawsuit against Chris Kyle — who was killed in February by a young veteran he was mentoring — by substituting Kyle’s wife, Taya, as the defendant. Ventura last year sued Kyle, a decorated former SEAL and author of “American Sniper,” claiming that the book’s description of a California bar fight defamed him.

On Wednesday, Taya Kyle’s attorney filed a response to the motion, writing that Ventura’s move “comes as a disappointment, but no surprise.”

“Continuing this action will serve no useful purpose,” wrote Kyle’s attorney, John Borger of Minneapolis, “and likely will promote public perception of Jesse Ventura as someone who has little or no regard for the feelings and welfare of surviving family members of deceased war heroes.”

Jesse Ventura (James Janos) has gone off the rails since his days as a Pro Wrestler. He has turned into a 1srt Class Asshole. He is making beau coup bucks from his books and radio shows etc. He needs to drop the suit and leave Taya Kyle alone. He will never be welcomed at a a UDT/SEAL function again. I know if I was cut off from the brotherhood it would kill me. Apparently it does not bother JV.

Just finished reading American Sniper and as it did not have an ending, went to the internet. Knew who Ventura was a long time ago, before this stunt. but slime can get dirtier. RIP HERO CHRIS KYLE. Wish I could have been half the man you were.

A better name for him is Jesse "The Bonehead" Ventura. What an ass-- suing the wife of a real American patriot over a note in Chris Kyle's book that he knocked this phony on his ass. He should be ashamed of himself, but he passed on that hurdle a long time ago.

Jesse Ventura should be ashamed of himself. He's a fraud. He's just another one of those far left wing nuts who has a problem with the United States. He claims to be independent or libertarian, I don't remember which but it doesn't matter. He's neither one because he's a fraud. He's low life scum.

Understand there is a world where we don't cry outside our boundries.  You get your ass kicked for doing something stupid... you lift your chin and take it.  You shut up, then go on.   This failure did not adhere to code, and is an embarrassment.

Regardless.  It was between Chris and the Loser.  Leave the wife/widow alone.  This guy suing the widow is now showing how he is the lowest form of crap.  I applaud Castro over this dipshit.

He was in US Navy Underwater Demolition Team during 1970-1975 in Vietnam war which was the precursor to the Navy Seals. The name Navy Seal didn't come into play for that role until 1983. So he is a some what of a founding father so show the man a little more respect. And he is suing to clear his name not for the money.

Jesse Ventura is and always has been a fraud. Now he's sunk about as low as anyone could in bringing a lawsuit against an American hero and a deceased one at that. What a crumb.

Jesse's cheese slid off his cracker a long time ago. I hope Mrs. Kyle takes him out.

Jesse has become a useful IDIOT for the liberals. He's trying to get money somehow as his lack of real brain power and ability to act have left him low on cash. He will loose this battle as well, as there is no way of proving he was not an IDIOT in whatever happened in California. Jesse, get out while your ahead though that may be tough, since your trying to sue the widow of a dead hero, and since you have a lot of class though it all appears to be low, the one thing you should do now, is shut your pie hole, stop your whining and leave this poor lady alone.

Who punches an old man anyway, then goes on TV and gloats about it. I'm not a huge fan of Ventura and perhaps he should have kept his mouth shut but to deck an old man is disgusting.

All those that were present need to file briefs, affidavits, or what have you, with the Kyle family lawyer.  Fight fire with fire.

This behavior is unecoming and unmanly. And it can't end well for him in any way. He should have had the race to let it go. He could have done so without giving up his stance. He could have simply let the suit die with a statement that his concern was with Chris, and it died with him. And if he is wanting money from that book, he's in trouble, because Chris donated the proceeds to charity. This is both stupid and tacky.

Jesse is a complete douse bag!  Any positive thoughts I had concerning him are GONE.  Go the H**l jackA**!

This old Jarhead heard it from a Navy SEAL officer, who got it from someone who was there

Ventura ran his mouth off, made some really rude statements, and got cold cocked for it. I trust my source. :)

What. The. Fuck... asshole, douche nozzle, cheesedick, cleemund, dingleberry. This dude has no respect... none what so ever. 

I apologize for getting off topic, but I still don't quite understand why Ventura is considered a SEAL. I know he graduated from BUD/S and served in an Underwater Demolition Team, but I thought Bill Salisbury laid it out rather definitively.

"...claiming that the book’s description of a California bar fight defamed him."

Jesse, Describing it as a Barfight is defamatory to barfights. There was no "fight". YOU defamed yourself with your own mouth and you got your clock cleaned as a just result.

Mouthing off that the Seals "deserved to lose a few over there" at the memorial wake for a fallen Seal awarded the Medal of Honor... Dude... Your are LUCKY the Seals like Kyle are very restrained individuals.
YOU wouldn't know anything about that however because despite your lies, you were NEVER a Seal.

@Trust_no_1  The US Navy SEALs were commissioned on January 1st 1962, I was in BUD/S Class 57 and Jim Janos aka Jesse Ventura was in Class 58. He went to UDT 12 and I went to SEAL Team ONE. Jesse didn't want anything to do with the SEALs or our operations in Vietnam. He did go in country for a few days but was not in combat to the best of my knowledge. He now implies that he was a SEAL and that he was a combatant. His behavior in regard to Mrs. Kyle has alienated him from UDTs and SEALs past and present.

@Trust_no_1  well if you SUE like a PUNK because they said you are a PUNK . respect is no longer owed !

JimBancroft

@Trust_no_1 You need to learn your history. SEAL teams were created by President John Kennedy in 1962 or so, not 1983. I saw Navy SEAL teams as a Marine in 1981, myself, and deployed with them on our ship, too.

ScottHanson

@Trust_no_1 
Yes, he was UDT, and UDT and SEALs both went through same training.

However he has no name to clear. Multiple witnesses bear out Kyle's story as true. Jesse the Duchebag Venture needs to get beat within an inch of his lief over what he said.

And he has ZERO business suing Kyle's Widow. That's just more evidence of his Duchebaggery.

What respect he has earned from being a UDT, he has more than lost for his actions since.

ScottHanson

@DionPrisby And another thing, there is not "Perhaps he should have.." about it. 

Michael Monsoor had thrown himself on a Grenade to save the lives of his fellow Seals as well as a couple of Iraqi officers. He was the ONLY one in a position to escape the blast. Instead he took the full brunt of the blast at the cost of his own life to save the lives of others. For those actions he was Posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.

They were at a wake for Monsoor with Monsoor's family and the families of other Seals when mister dumbass conspiracy kook opened his mouth about them deserving to lose a few.

Old man or not, he deserved to get far more than what he got.

ScottHanson
ScottHanson

@DionPrisby go ahead and take the side of a douchebag.
Old man or not. What he said and where and when he said it, He deserved an asskicking, What he got was a single punch to the face that laid his ass out. He could have been a woman for all I care.

You DO NOT in front of the families of a fallen soldier, tell them they "deserved to lose a few".  He he been the President of the United States, he would have been laid out.

And Kyle DID NOT go on TV and gloat about it. He was asked about it in an interview and he admitted to it. That is not the same thing as gloating. But I would not expect someone of your obvious (lack of) intellect to grasp the difference.

@DionPrisby It's one thing to punch an old man, quite another when you punch an old man making fun of a fallen warrior at his funeral in front of his family. Mr. Kyle didn't gloat either. He admitted it and that was that.

@ScottHanson Didn't the whole thing start with Ryan Job wanting to meet Ventura and RJ was blown off by JV?

@ScottHanson 

I think they showed him restraint for his being a former BUDS graduate and famous and all, but when old farts try to impress the young bucks who are in the game right now...it can end badly!

Minou_Demimonde

@ScottHanson @DionPrisby Michael Monsoor committee one of the greatest acts of supreme sacrifice that out nation has ever known. Ventura was lucky to come out of these alive, frankly. 

And I don't think that Ventura would appreciate you calling him old. He's only 64 now. And was, when it happened, in his mid 50s. His behavior was unconscionable, and stupid.

This just makes it all the more vivid.

@Noorviko @JimBancroft 

Actually, Don Shipley might have been the guy who told my source! :)
They have vetted a few for me, my friend has one up to date source copy of all BUDS graduates, so, I can make a direct call to him when I meet posers
For what it's worth, I was USMC, 1977-1981, MOS 7242, didnt do a thing, and got a chest full of medals for it :)
