Jesse Ventura

Former governor of Minnesota, Navy SEAL and Professional Wrestler Jesse Ventura joins the conversation to talk about conspiracies and the 2016 presidential election.  

Ventura believes the biggest conspiracy in the US is the assassination of President John Kennedy. He says he still doesn't try to figure out who killed him but if new information comes out he is eager to learn.  

Hour 2:

Emrys Staton

The Reverend Emrys Staton chats with Jim about illegal immigration in the United State and his forum at the Unitarian church in Baton Rouge called Expanding the Border Between the United State and Mexico: Enforcement Beyond Fences.  Staton was arrested for his activism but has never spent a night in jail. 

Staton says he's been appalled by some things that come out of Donald Trump's mouth. He doesn't believe the border needs to be militarized to be effective. 

John Folse

Chef John Folse joins the show to remember another Louisiana chef, Paul Prudhomme. Prudhomme passed away today at the age of 75. 

Julianne Thompson

Former co-chair of the Atlanta Tea Party and founder of the Free America Project Julianne Thompson chats with Jim about Majority House Leader Kevin McCarthy dropping out of the race for Speaker of the House.
