The mysterious Michael Ruppert

Who is Michael Ruppert ?
A look at Michael Ruppert by the Skunk



A 53 yr old Nostradamus or an Israeli disinformation agent ?


Who is Michael Ruppert ?

Ruppert graduates UCLA in 1973 - becomes LAPD cop - then a narcotics agent and declares it's the CIA behind drugs in America. He mysteriously resigns/fired in 1978 and voluntarily commits himself to psychiatric care.

Next he surfaces as a counter espionage agent who dates a CIA agent who tells him about weapons for heroin in Iraq. His career from 1980 to 1996 is a blank until Ruppert reappears in 1996.



Winds up on national TV debating the CIA director?



By some miracle in 1996, Ruppert winds up on TV confronting CIA director John Deutsch about CIA involvement in drugs - Ruppert appears before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, where he spoke on CIA ,drugs and police infiltration and is on his way to fame and fortune.



Ruppert discovers the Internet?



In 1998 Ruppert starts a run of the mill web site called 'From the wilderness' - it's a nothing till some mysterious backer suddenly appears and fronts a $ 50,000 Washington Post ad - that puts him on the map. Legend goes he was then able to raise almost $114,000 to follow up with an ad blitz in major newspapers throughout the nation's top markets and brings his subscriber base to 16,000. In 1998, has a staff of three full-time employees and generates about $400,000 a year from a variety of sources, including subscriptions.

fritters

Has anyone who posts here actually read "Crossing The Rubicon"? I say cut the guy some slack.......his research is intensive and what he does leave out of his book regarding 911 can't be explained by his detective-work methodolgies. Maybe he'd have devoted a chapter to the Pentagon hit and its photos, but alas that material is in short supply. He explains such in the book. Also, if Peak Oil theory is really a scam to whirl the planet into "disaster" mode, either way it's tragic. I'd recommend the book as a talented effort at bringing alot of the puzzle-pieces together and making "sense" of it all.

Expat

I don't know the whole "story" of Ruppert any more than you, but the fact is that his website was huge in activist and 9/11 truth communities well before the Washington Post ad you mention. I seem to remember him selling out PSU, and everywhere else he spoke. Go back and check the Indymedia archives.

And, for what it's worth, everyone who voices a differing opinion should not be automatically labeled "COINTELPRO," "CIA," "Mossad agent" or whatever. Man, we're starting to sound as paranoid and fundamentalist as right wing Rethuglicans.

Ruppert's book says Big Oil, Bush, Cheney, Pakistan and CIA were behind 9/11







Who is Michael Ruppert ?

Ruppert graduates UCLA in 1973 - becomes LAPD cop - then a narcotics agent and declares it's the CIA behind drugs in America. He mysteriously resigns/fired in 1978 and voluntarily commits himself to psychiatric care.

Next he surfaces as a counter espionage agent who dates a CIA agent who tells him about weapons for heroin in Iraq. His career from 1980 to 1996 is a blank until Ruppert reappears in 1996.



Winds up on national TV debating the CIA director

http://judicial-inc.biz/pics/page_111.jpg



By some miracle in 1996, Ruppert winds up on TV confronting CIA director John Deutsch about CIA involvement in drugs - Ruppert appears before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, where he spoke on CIA ,drugs and police infiltration and is on his way to fame and fortune.



Ruppert discovers the Internet

http://judicial-inc.biz/pics/page_63.gif



In 1998 Ruppert starts a run of the mill web site called 'From the wilderness' - it's a nothing till some mysterious backer suddenly appears and fronts a $ 50,000 Washington Post ad - that puts him on the map. Legend goes he was then able to raise almost $114,000 to follow up with an ad blitz in major newspapers throughout the nation's top markets and brings his subscriber base to 16,000. In 1998, has a staff of three full-time employees and generates about $400,000 a year from a variety of sources, including subscriptions.


Taliban and Afghanistan

http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:ykdjSIuybDwJ:www.kprf.ru/clipart/misc/taliban.jpg



Ruppert avoids mentioning that Afghanistan was about getting Jewish controlled drug routes back after the Taliban threw them out. He maintains the $ 200 bill a yr opium trade is run by some camel jockeys hiding in a cave. After 9/11 Bush invades Afghanistan and the drug trade returns to it's former owners. Ruppert also spins the fairy tale that the Medellin Cartel and Colombian Narco terrorists control the South American drug trade.

The world drug trade is a $ 600 billion a yr. international business and has always been controlled by the same people.




Now comes 9/11

Ruppert and Delmart Vreeland ( ex-con) and both ex-cops, become the 'In-Guys ' and corner a large piece of the alternative-9/11 market. Suddenly he becomes a hot ticket on the college speaking circuit where he tells young minds of big oil and evil politicians were behind 9/11.

http://judicial-inc.biz/pics/page_110.jpg



The simple truth is 9/11 was an Israeli operation designed to false flag Muslims and allow the Iraq and soon the Iran invasion - Israel gets Arab oil and Muslims get blamed for coming financial collapse but Ruppert sees a different boogey man.

Ruppert's take is 9/11 was a CIA job using Pakistani intelligence and Arab hijackers and the US government used the attacks to go to war on behalf of oil interests. His site talks of Bush and Bin Laden profited from a stock account run by Buzzy Krongard (Executive Director of the CIA).



Great pains to avoid Israeli involvement

Ruppert avoids the fact that 200 Israelis (demolitions experts to anti hijacking teams ) were in the USA and arrested after 9/11.He totally dismissed the possibility of any Israeli or Mossad involvement with 9/11.



Gary Webb's assassination

http://judicial-inc.biz/pics/Page_527.jpg



Gary Webb is a famous reporter on the drug trade who is writing a book about Israel's involvement when he gets shot twice in the head. Ruppert declares it a suicide and declares anyone who dared challenge that verdict as "Internet trailer park trash",


Ruppert's purpose

He seems to be a dis-information agent whose job is blame the drug trade on Colombian drug lords, Chinese Ninjas, Afghan warlords and the CIA.

His version of 9/11 was - It was engineered by Bilderbergs , Illuminati , Skull and Bones, Cheney but not Israel.



Ruppert prediction of gold

http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:Wxx9iCpOaNIJ:www.usagold.com/gold/coins/pics/bars.jpeg



The strangest thing is he pushes the coming collapse and the purchase of gold - which no one listens to but will give him great credibility when it happens.

The potential was so great; the disappointment so vast. Mike Ruppert
could have led the 9-11 Truth Movement to glorious heights. Instead, he
has fallen to pitiful depths --- exposed, once-and-for-all, as someone
who never had our best interests in mind from the start.

We Love Mike Ruppert 25.Jan.2005 20:21

Ruppert Fan

Mike Ruppert's Crossing the Rubicon is the benchmark book on the Reichstag Fire of 2001, and every page is both a gem and a must-read. Israel is, as Ruppert makes clear, a junior partner of US imperialism. The Anti-Semitic Nazi USA government does not give it $4 billion a year above the table and $4 billion a year below the table because it likes Jews; it despises Jews and in fact has set up Israel as a death trap for Jews. Israel is a US military base that exists to protect US oil profits in the Middle East. Both the Jewish and Arab workingclass of Israel are in constant conflict with the Zionist capitalist government as the capitalist economic crisis is making this miserable hellhole less viable with each passing day.

Ruppert states what was obvious the day it happened as it happened if you understand the nature of US imperialism: This was the CIA's Operation Northwoods realized, a plan approved by the entire Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1962 to carry out such agent provocateur actions as blow up a US airplane and blame it on Cuba so as to have an excuse to invade Cuba. Kennedy vetoed this plan. Ruppert also does not have much use for either the Democrats or Republicans as he states clearly they both represent the rich.

So, the 9/11/01 hoax was carried out by the US military with planes on automatic pilot. 9 of the alleged hijackers are known to be alive, others died years earlier. The government has admitted that (1) the names are all phony and (2) they have no evidence that the named persons named did anything. Our air defense systems which exist over the entire country could easily have stopped the first plane crash, much less all the rest; they were told to stand down, which can only be done by the highest authority, namely the president, vice-president or secretary of defense.

The Twin Towers and Building 7 were brought down by construction explosives in their own footprint at practically free fall, in small enough pieces to be carted off immediately, thus removing the evidence from the scene of the crime. We have the video, and it clearly shows explosives. Note also the South Tower, which was hit second, came down first. Building 7 was not hit by any plane; its primary leaseholder, Larry Silverstein, admitted on CNN that it was brought down by construction explosives.

The Pentagon was also damaged by construction explosives in the area where it was undergoing renovations.

The plane that flew over Pennsylvania was shot down by the US military.

Cheney was in control of the whole scene from his bunker in the White House, and Bush knew this, as did Rumsfeld.

Condolezza Rice admitted on CNN by 5/17/02, and reported on Pacifica,that she warned then mayor of San Francisco, Willie Brown, 8 hours before she and her cohorts in the Bush Administration perpetrated the 9/11/01 murders that he should stay off airplanes, thus admitting foreknowledge and complicity.

We certainly do have a crisis with oil and all of these wars are blood for oil was in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

The 2001 bombings were an attempt to perpetrate war abroad and fascism at home so as to enrich the profits of the capitalist class, just like Nazi Germany and its Reichstag Fire.

The US is not at war; the Congress of the US did not officially declare war on the government of Afghanistan or of Iraq. The US invasion of both constitutes war crimes. It is the US government that is the terrorist and biggest theat to world peace. Just like Nazi Germany, the capitalist class is trying to eliminate as much of the workingclass as possible since it cannot provide jobs for us. That is why it is sending the workingclass to be cannon fodder in Iraq, even if they are not qualified, and not providing adequate armor or medical care or veterans' benefits. This is the same government that wants to eliminate Social Security, murder women by denying women abortions, eliminate the public school system so that the workingclass children cannot live a better life, and so forth. It is time to eliminate the private profit system, which only a labor movement can do.

As to Ruppert's fees, if you do not want to be guest speaker fees, you do not have to. The speaker can then decide if he wants to appear at an event on his own volition or not. These fees are very reasonable for someone with Ruppert's expertise.

This trash about Ruppert is more government lies. Read his book. Three cheers for the 9/11 Truth Movement!

Ruppert was right about one thing BUT 25.Jan.2005 20:31

Cheney was no mastermind

Ruppert was right about one thing. Cheney was involved. The people who coordinated the attack on 911 were the members of the Project for a New American Century. The American-Jewish establishment. Israel could not have pulled it off without the help of Bush and Cheney and others in the Pentagon arranging for a stand down of the air force. The money for Mohammed Atta came from the CIA and was funneled through the Pakistani intelligence. All the major intelligence agencies are tied together and funded by drug money - among other things. The attack on Afghanistan had a couple of purposes. To lay a oil pipeline and to retake control of the drug trade. The attack on Iraq was motivated by greed on the part of Cheney for oil, by Bush so he could loot the country of its other assets ( remember the pictures of US soldiers peeling the gold off of walls ), and of Israel to be rid of an enemy and claim that part of Iraq needed for "Greater Israel." The war on terror is the over-arching program since it justifies terrorizing people into giving up their rights. Bush and friends will launch terrorist attacks against American interests wherever there are assets they want. Then they will send the military in to 'protect' those countries and 'liberate' them. It's the same scam the Jews have used in Palestine. Every time they wanted more land, they faked a terrorist attack. That then allowed them to level more homes and push the boundaries of Israel. Notice that the 'terrorists' in Israel never targeted any of the Zionist murderers. They only targeted those Jews who wanted peace or poor working class Arabs and Jews on buses. The zionists have never hesitated to sacrifice lesser Jews for the big ambitions of the Rothschilds and Rockfellers.

whats up with all this stuff about ruppert 25.Jan.2005 22:26

alan

read his book...twice!...the importance of ruppert are the facts he brings to the table reguarding 911...so mikes high strung who gives a rats ass...his facts and the questions they raise...are whats important!!!....no?

The Truth Hurts 26.Jan.2005 16:43

nobody

Ruppert raises many important questions. We have ALL been brainwashed in this culture. We have the worst school system in the Industrialized World.
The Truth About 911 raises very imminent questions that most of us are too brainwashed or afraid to even think about, much less ask. Ruppert is very brave, just like Ralph Nader, and since neither of them care about being popular or fitting in or making millions, they take risks and stick their necks out for us.

all these recent postings about Mike Ruppert 27.Jan.2005 20:36

reader

make it clear that someone is on a mission to bash the guy. That someone's reasons are less clear.

Crossing the Rubicon is quite a work, and hardly "Israeli disinformation."

They think we're all very weak-minded.
