From-the-Wildnerness Oregon Offices Burglarized - Computers destroyed

Property destruction? Isn't that "terrorism?"

Not only was the office broken into, the computers were DESTROYED. Not stolen, not seized for information. DESTROYED.

Whatever your views of Ruppert, there is absolutely no doubt that he is one of the main (if not the main) targets of this government's black ops, because he's published material that hits the buttons.

The website is still up, ( http://www.fromthewilderness.com) but will not be updated on schedule at present.

Enemy Government. Yes that is terrorism of the worst kind-of the free press.

Urgent Message From Mike Ruppert 26.Jun.2006 23:48

Urgent Message From Mike Ruppert

Between the hours of 7:30 P.M. Sunday, June 25 and 7:30 A.M., Monday,
June 26, the FTW offices were burglarized. Four interior doors were
smashed with a sledgehammer. All seven FTW computers were transported
to a central location in the building. Their covers were removed and
they were also smashed with a sledgehammer. No other significant
property was taken and there was no other damage to any other
fixtures or furnishings.

An active police investigation is underway with a named suspect. I do
not believe that this incident was the work of the U.S. government. I
do believe that this is the work of an organized meth ring that I
prevented from infiltrating my business. As Dmitri Orlov has noted in
Post-Soviet Lessons for a Post-American Century, when societies
collapse, organized crime becomes much more assertive. As beautiful
as Southern Oregon is and as happy as I am to be here, the challenges
that will be facing all of us as Peak Oil hits are making themselves

We have ordered new computers and should be able to retrieve or
restore most of our data. However more than one hard-drive will
require expensive high- tech recovery processes. In all probability
FTW will not be able to upload to our website for one week from
today. When we come back online I will have a more complete story
with photographs. Please do not send emails. We cannot read them.

Michael C. Ruppert

Mike is asking that this message be distributed widely until he can
get back online.

backup important data 27.Jun.2006 11:38


I hope mike (and everybody else with important data) knows about online remote backup of data. Just google "online data backup" and you'll find lots of companies that will provide server space, for a fee. You can schedule daily (or weekly) backups. It's easy. This way if you loose your 'puter (house burns down, theives, etc), you don't loose your files; and no need to pay for someone to try to recover data from a damaged hard drive.
