9/11 Truth and the Legacy of Michael C Ruppert: Connecting the Dots Like No One Else

9/11 Truth and the Legacy of Michael C Ruppert: Connecting the Dots Like No One Else thumbnail

Personal note: I was among those whose eyes were opened by MCR, not only about 9/11, but about the virtue of what he called ‘map-making’ as a tool for providing context for world events, such as the Western air-strikes smashing Syria as I write these words. I am privileged to have had the chance to interview him more than once. Rest in Peace Tracker of Truth! – [Michael A. Welch, April 13, 2018]

This week, the Global Research News Hour radio program marks the fourth anniversary of the death of an independent journalist and alternative media figure who served as an inspiration to many in the post 9/11 period. His name was Michael C Ruppert.

MCR first gained notoriety on the public stage after his confrontation with CIA Director John Deutsch in 1996, when he essentially outed the agency’s involvement dealing drugs in the US.

He would go on to found a newsletter and website: From The Wilderness, which featured ground-braking stories on government corruption and malfeasance along with incisive geopolitical and economic analysis.

Among the stories pursued by Ruppert and FTW: the dependence of the world economic system on drug money laundering, the phenomenon of peak oil, the demonstrable deceptions surrounding the war in  Iraq, and the friendly fire death of U.S. Army Ranger Pat Tillman.

Among the biggest marks Ruppert ever left however, was his expert dismantling of the official story of 9/11. He wrote a major, heavily footnoted tome on the subject which not only named Vice President Dick Cheney as the prime suspect in the attacks, but connected the event with peak oil and the corruption of the U.S. economy.

Yet in spite of such achievements, far from being rewarded for challenging power, Ruppert found himself in precarious circumstances, struggling with emotional instability, mocked and maligned as a ‘conspiracy theorist’. It appears that overwhelmed by personal and world circumstances, he took his own life on the evening of April 13, 2014.

In this special anniversary program, with the help of some of his many friends and acquaintances who graciously agreed to be interviewed for this show, we will try to get a better understanding of his achievements, his struggles, and the meaning of his untimely death.

Carolyn Baker was an adjunct professor of history and psychology for 11 years and a psychotherapist in private practice for 17 years. She contributed to Ruppert’s on-line newsletter From The Wilderness, and co-hosted his final radio broadcast before he died. She continues to host the weekly ‘Lifeboat Hour‘ podcast which Ruppert started.

Jamey Hecht, PhD is a poet, scholar, actor, and practicing psychotherapist whose interests span Shakespeare, peak oil and the Classics. He was a long time associate of Michael Ruppert’s having not only contributed to the From the wilderness website, but also having edited Crossing the Rubicon: The decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil.

Barry Silverthorn is a Canadian cinematographer who has worked on programs for the Vision channel, and had worked with fellow Canadian Barrie Zwicker to produce the acclaimed documentary film ‘End of Suburbia‘ in which Ruppert made an appearance. Silverthorn hosted Ruppert in his home when he returned from Venezuela.

Jenna Orkin had been acquainted with Michael Ruppert since 2004 when they both attended the 9-11 Citizens’ Commission. She also contributed to FTW until its demise. She shared her New York home with Ruppert as he was convalescing following his return from Venezuela. In 2014 she authored the account: Scout: A Memoir of Investigative Journalist Michael C. Ruppert, with Against the Dying of the Light.

Mark Robinowitz is a writer, political activist, ecological campaigner and permaculture practitioner and publisher of oilempire.us us, a political map to connect the dots. His site features an ‘In Memorium‘ section which profiles not only MCR, but a similar researcher: John Judge.

Mimi German is an Earth activist and poet and Portland Oregon resident who has helped monitor radioactive fall-out from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster through the Radcast platform she founded. She became close friends with Mike Ruppert and was in fact one of his last guests before he died.

Music for the radio feature (not available in the soundcloud version) was by David Baerwald, who Michael Ruppert had also been close to in life.

    Spot on, Michael Ruppert, paid a high price for his actions. The opioid epidemic is another government sponsored ploy to raise money and exploit the rabble for corporate gain.
    Mr. Ruppert was a light and missed, RIP.
    Thanks for the post

    I first learned about peak oil from watching Rupperts collapse. I thought it was bullshit at first. But then I fact checked it and learned peak oil was actual true science. Ruppert proves that accepting peak oil can lead to suicidal thoughts. That is why its so strongly denied.

    In 2001 I was working for a big German bank, building their all-encompassing banking portal on a new technology basis. On a day in September somebody stormed into the office saying that “a piper-cup” had crashed in the World Trade Center in New York. From that moment on it was browser-F5 time. I went home early that day and watched in awe the unfolding spectacle. Next day I reported myself ill and remained glued to the screen for the remainder of the day.

    I was not as smart as DJT, who remarked on the very day that there must have been bombs in the building [3:48]:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0STS7HBi5Cw

    I believed the official story until roughly 2004. But meanwhile my old-fashioned 2400 baud Compuserve connection had been replaced by cable and I became an info-addict, among others info related to 9/11. By 2006 I heard myself saying to a good client: “they did it themselves”. Bewilderment with the client.

    In 2008 I wanted to go to the bottom of the matter and spend 2-3 months figuring out what happened, result here:

    http://how911wasdone.blogspot.nl/

    http://911notes.blogspot.nl/?zx=f67aca735f7c21d9

    Summary:

    The 4 planes were the planes they were said to be. The crew and passengers were gassed after take off (nerve gas or something) and the planes were taken over through remote control and crashed into WTC1 and WTC2. The takeover of F77 failed and was shot down over the Atlantic. There never crashed a passenger plane into the Pentagon. If it had, we would have seen the pictures, but more than 60 camera’s were confiscated, with the clear intent to hide the truth. F96 was shot down on orders of a local commander after one of his fighter pilots Eric Gibney had witnessed that everybody on board was dead. The plane did not crash in one piece near Shanksville, but debris of the plane was scattered over a wide area as a result of the missile shooting. The plane was intended to crash into WTC7, causing some embarrassment for the plotters as they were stuck with a building full with explosives. Kosher plotter Silverstein solved the dilemma by pushing the button anyway, blowing up the building at free fall gravity, even if no plane had hit the building in advance.

    The operation was carried out by the Mossad on instigation of their neocon palls, who needed a pretext to invade the Middle East and lay the foundation for a “New American Century”.

    Do you know how long it takes to wire up a building to collapse with explosives? It takes several weeks by licensed professionals. You can’t just throw in some sticks of dynamite and bring a building down on itself. So there is no way you could have that done without being caught by someone. The buildings fell because they were cheaply made.

    Like I said. You are severally mentally ill and deranged. Another symptom of overpopulation and collapse.

    Peak oil is not a myth -The Royal Society of Chemistry

    Current data for the decline in oil fields’ production indicates that around 3 million barrels per day of new production must be achieved year on year, simply to sustain supply levels. This is equivalent to finding another Saudi Arabia every 3–4 years. In this context, fracking is at best a stop-gap measure. Conventional oil production is predicted to drop by over 50% in the next two decades and tight oil is unlikely to replace more than 6%.

    Once conventional oil’s rate of loss exceeds unconventional oil’s rate of production, world production must peak. Production of sweet, light crude actually peaked in 2005 but this has been masked by the increase in unconventional oil production, and also by lumping together different kinds of material with oil and referring to the collective as ‘liquids’. (More recently, the term ‘liquids’ is often upgraded to ‘oil’, which is highly disinformative since the properties of the other liquids are quite different from crude oil.)

    Yes, your point?

    Talking about licensed professionals, here is a Dutch professional building demolisher without any in depth knowledge of 9/11. He is confronted with WTC7 pictures and immediately responds: “this is controlled demolition”

    My point is that you couldn’t wire up major building like that full of workers for several weeks without someone noticing. You think nobody working at building seven would notice people coming in and rigging explosives to all the walls? You are just so dumb and you believe whatever you want to. Facts don’t change your mind. Because you are mentally ill.

  18. Cloggie on Mon, 16th Apr 2018 12:44 pm 

    My point is that you couldn’t wire up major building like that full of workers for several weeks without someone noticing.

    Silverstein bought the WTC complex for pennies on the dollar weeks before the attacks because the buildings had to be demolished anyway because of asbestos. Next he insured the complex against terrorist attacks. Silverstein and his Israeli security firm were in charge and could do with the complex what they wanted, including wiring the 3 buildings for demolition from the basement of WTC7 and the elevator shafts of WTC1/2.

    Iraq invasion was about oil

    https://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2014/mar/20/iraq-war-oil-resources-energy-peak-scarcity-economy

    It was about many things:

    – stealing oil Iraq
    – destroying adversary Israel
    – adding Iraq to US empire a la KSA and Jordan

    With Syria it was about the same things, except for the oil.

    2 million people killed, but that was worth it according to the local empire cheerleaders millimind and his water carrier meathead.

    No need to see Washington as anything else than a crime syndicate.

    In both cases Washington failed and meanwhile SCO is in place and the US presidency has been hijacked from the deep state by a populist.

    Not all is going well for millimind and meathead.ROFL

    By 2025, shortly after Trump, the US empire and even the US won’t exist in its present shape.

    Now what is your explanation for the fact that WTC7 fell with the speed of gravity? I’ll help you: the only explanation is that all the carrying columns in the basement were knocked over at the same time with explosives. There is no other explanation. Hence the building was prepared in advance for demolition. The reason why they would do such a thing is that F93 was intended to crash into WTC7 but was shot down over Pennsylvania.

    And what is your story, Thomas bin Potter?
