Jesse Ventura: FED UP with ‘draft-dodgers’ beating drums of war at Iran
Former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura and producer Brigida Santos examine the breakdown of diplomacy which has led to feverish tensions between Iran and the United States. President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran Deal has catapulted Tehran’s nuclear program to the forefront of media coverage citing global security scares.

PLUS, Kris Newby, author of ‘Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons,’ walks us through the origins of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses, stemming from federal programs to employ them as biological weapons abroad. What’s more, the US biological weapons program may actually have unleashed infected ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes on lower-income populations in America, using our own citizens as guinea pigs.
