SETTLED: Chris Kyle is "American Liar".

Postby JU-87 » Tue Dec 05, 2017 11:56 pm

After reading both sides of this debate, I have sided with Jesse Ventura from the beginning.
Chris Kyle: Navy SEAL, Sniper, Decorated combat veteran, murder victim and LIAR.


Ventura Glad Legal Battle Against 'American Sniper' Is Over
The Associated Press 5 Dec 2017 By Steve Karnowski

MINNEAPOLIS — Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura denounced the late "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle on Monday as an "American Liar" and said he feels vindicated in his five-year legal battle against the former Navy SEAL and his estate, though he declined to say how much his settlement is worth.

At a news conference Monday, Ventura would not tell reporters how much money he received for settling his defamation case but noted he was smiling about it...

So he sued a dead guy's wife and kids. I guess the living SEALS will decide what was right and administer their own brand of justice maybe.
Have a great day today unless you have made other plans :-).

Till the lawsuit I never knew Ventura was even mentioned, I certainly didn't catch the reference, and yes I did read the book.

I never thought Ventura was defamed or a douche until he filed the lawsuit.
Now I have an even lower opinion of J Ventura, who I never really had an opinion about before.

Kyle on the other hand, I still see in a favorable light. He served, he spent his time helping others when he came back, if you feel one tall tale is enough to besmirch everything positive he did, well that's just sad.

Chris Kyle lied to promote his book sales.
That caused Jesse Ventura's income to be negatively impacted.
Sadly, Kyle was murdered by a Marine. :cry:
Case went to court. Ventura won!
The Kyle estate and Publisher of Kyle's book appealed, and a retrial was scheduled.
On December 5th, 2017, Kyle estate and book publisher surrendered, and offed a secret monetary settlement.
Ventura accepted.
Case closed. Chris Kyle was, among other things, a liar.

Those of you who are "Chris Kyle FanBoys" can make all your excuses now... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lots of people win at the trial level because of judicial error, which is what happened here. The appeals court unanimously threw out one of the judgements, which constituted 75% of the award. The rest of the award was reversed because the trial judge allowed Ventura's lawyer to make statements to the jury that both the lawyer and judge knew he wasn't allowed to make.

You don't know any of that. You're accepting Ventura's statement. All we know is that both parties settled. He claimed something went into his account. Could've been 1c. Could've been his attorney costs. We don't know.

Ventura's a conspiracy theory nutjob who believes, among other things, that 9/11 was an inside job.

So your ripping on a dead guy who did have a record of service to his country.
He died before he could defend himself in court.

So the living ex wrestler ex UDT ex Governor won in a lawsuit....he beat a man who is now dead.

I cannot imagine the whole SEAL community based anything on the words of ONE man in turning their backs on Ventura, nor will they now embrace him with loving arms again.

Have a great day today unless you have made other plans :-).

The only fanboy I see in this thread is you Mr. JU, I see you are a Jesse Ventura fanboy.

I've also noted that you have some sort hate for the armed forces.

Would you care to share the reason for all the hate filled posts?

JU-87, "Ventura", and Kyle all claim to have served in the military...so let's not rip any of them for being part of or outside of some club. Character assassination based on association or negative association is not an argument. Let us attempt to differentiate the messenger from the message, and debate the later instead of the former, shall we? Or are we all identity politics driven group-thinkers now? (see what I did there? Doesn't have the same ring to it...)
