    Default Remembering Mike Rupert 1951-2014 - Conspiracy Theorist Extraordinaire

    In 1996, then Director of Central Intelligence John Deutch visited Los Angeles' Locke High School for a town hall meeting. At the meeting, Mike Ruppert publicly confronted Deutch, saying that in his experience as an LAPD narcotics officer he had seen evidence of CIA complicity in drug dealing. The confrontation was handled by Deutch so poorly it resulted in his termination from the CIA.*

    Here's to you, Mike!

    *On November 15, 1996, Deutch was at Locke High School in Los Angeles at a town hall meeting on the topic of drug dealing. He was visibly taken aback by the confrontational testimony from an LAPD narcotics officer, Michael Ruppert, that he had seen evidence of CIA complicity in drug dealing for a long time.
    Deutch left the CIA on December 15, 1996 and later that year it was revealed that several of his laptop computers contained classified materials designated as unclassified. In January 1997, the CIA began a formal security investigation of the matter. Senior management at CIA declined to fully pursue the security breach. Over two years after his departure, the matter was referred to the Department of Justice, where Attorney General Janet Reno declined prosecution. She did, however, recommend an investigation to determine whether Deutch should retain his security clearance. President Clinton pardoned Deutch on his last day in office.




    9/11 conspiracy theorist and investigative journalist 'commits suicide'


    The 63-year-old former narcotics investigator with the LAPD, shot himself after a final radio show broadcast, a friend
    reported Mr Ruppert gained notoriety for theories that the U.S. government and Wall Street were behind 9/11 attacks

    • 9/11 conspiracy theorist and investigative journalist Michael Ruppert has reportedly committed suicide.
    • The 63-year-old former narcotics investigator with the LAPD shot himself after his radio show, according to an announcement by author Carolyn Baker who was a guest on his final broadcast on Sunday.
    • Mr Ruppert was famous for his litany of conspiracy theories which encompassed the CIA to drugs, international politics, the oil industry, Wall Street and 9/11.
    On her Facebook page, Ms Baker wrote: 'This was not a ''fake'' suicide. It was very well planned by Mike who gave us few clues but elaborate instructions for how to proceed without him. 'It was my privilege to have known Mike for 14 years, to have worked with him, to have been mentored by him, and to have supported him in some of his darkest hours, including the more recent ones.... Thank you Mike for all of the truth you courageously exposed and for the legacy of truth-telling you left us. Goodbye my friend. Your memory will live in hour hearts forever.'

    Mr Ruppert gained notoriety by confronting then-CIA Director John Deutch during a meeting in 1995 and telling him that he had seen CIA officers involved in drug-dealing. He later claimed on his website that the CIA and American government was involved in 9/11.

    In 2004, he published Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil. The book alleged than former VP Dick Cheney had conspired with Wall Street and other government officials over the September 11 World Trade Center attacks.
    In 2009, he starred in a documentary called Collapse where he spoke about his theories involving the demise of mankind following the economic and energy crises.

    His work was not without detractors. Many claimed that the investigator only used partial sources to qualify his work. Activist and writer Norman Solomon wrote: 'Some of the problem is in how he characterizes news reports. These citations can be narrowly factual yet presented in a misleading way. Yes, such-and-such newspaper reported that thus-and-so claim was made by so-and-so. The paper reported on the claim, but that doesn't mean the claim is true.'

    Below are some links of interviews of Ruppert from the Vice website. I have not watched the films nor seen "Collapse." The then bizzare claims that Gary Webb committed suicide seem, now, to be based on Ruppert's projection.

    Gary Webb who first broke the CIA- LA cocaine connection - his death was ruled by coroner "suicide - self inflected gunshot to the head."
    I found the coroner's assessment odd because ... he was shot TWICE in the head.

    America has a very real Secret Shadow Government, a term coined by Dr. Preston James. Its domestic and foreign policy agenda is based on privatization and fueled with cash. It has become nearly impossible to tell when an initiative out of Washington comes from the “real government” or the “SSG.”

    Mike Ruppert

    We were told that Michael Ruppert, the former Los Angeles police detective that confronted CIA Director John Deutch in 1996, forcing his resignation based on supported allegations of narcotics trafficking, died, said to be a suicide.

    This was the last time any law enforcement officer in the US stood up to CIA drug dealing as Ruppert spent much of the rest of his life “on the run.”

    Some time ago, Ruppert had phoned me, telling me that if I ever heard he had committed suicide, it would not be true.

    At one point, after being poisoned, Ruppert fled to Venezuela and lived under the protection of President Chavez.

    The story of Ruppert’s life is an example of what happens to anyone that speaks up. Ruppert was among the first to expose the “SSG.”
