Report: Mike Ruppert, former LAPD officer who exposed CIA drug dealing, dead at 63 (WTF RLY Report, April 15, 2014):

Raw Story

The 63-year-old Ruppert had previously worked as a Los Angeles police officer, and he gained notoriety in 1995 for an encounter with then-CIA Director John Deutch during a town hall meeting.

Ruppert, a former narcotics officer, told Deutch he’d seen evidence of CIA complicity in drug dealing.

He published and edited the website From The Wilderness, where he claimed the CIA and U.S. government were involved in the September 11, 2001, terrorist plots.

Ruppert also covered civil liberty issues, government corruption, economics, and international politics on the site, which he discontinued in 2006.

He published the 2004 book “Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil,” which speculated that then-Vice President Dick Cheney had conspired with other government officials and Wall Street financiers in the 9/11 attacks.

Ruppert also appeared in several documentary films, including “The 911 Report You Never Saw” and “Peak Oil,” and was the subject of another, “Collapse.”

His critics say Ruppert used dubious or partial sources to back his claims.

IN MEMORIAM MICHAEL C. RUPPERT, February 3, 1951–April 13, 2014.

Sunday night following Mike’s Lifeboat Hour radio show, he was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 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. His wishes were to be cremated, and as of this moment, there are no plans for a memorial service. However, I will be taking his show this coming Sunday night, April 20, and the entire show will be an In Memoriam show for Mike with opportunities for listeners to call in.

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. I am posting this announcement with the blessing of his partner Jesse Re and his landlord, Jack Martin.

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.

I have no more details to share than I am posting here. We should have much more information by Sunday night

  1. Thanks.
    These people are brave. So many are being terminated just as they seem ready to go public. He was wise enough to challenge at a public meeting & go from there.
    His analysis of so many covert acts by US, both at home and abroad, have been instrumental for many in the opening of what is the Pandora’s Box of global re-structuring created by G H W Bush with Kissinger & Zbigniew Brzezinski.
