Last night I received an email message from reader Gabrielle that she didn’t know if it was to be made public or not, but she thought I would like to know: Michael C. Ruppert is dead, an apparent suicide.
The message puzzled me. Who is Michael C. Ruppert? I confess that my ignorance of this man and his decades of intrepid investigative work on issues dear to my heart was extraordinary. Once in a while I discover vast, fathomless holes in my knowledge base. The ignorance I showed this time felt so abysmal, given the influence that this man, rightly, has had in worlds in which I too, travel, that frankly, it really shook me up.
I started to investigate. Found lots of amazing things about him. Here’s a story that just appeared on beforeitsnews.

What terrible news, Michael C Ruppert has left us.
This message appeared today on Mike’s facebook page:
“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 our hearts forever.
I have no more details to share than I am posting here. We should have much more information by Sunday night. ~ Carolyn Baker”
As far as I know,the guy was very knowledgable and knew alot of things were all about oil. He was one of the sane minds out there in the conspiracy world. In my book, hes right up there with Gerald Celente. What else can you say but Rest In Peace Mike.
A.K. again: Here’s the song he played on his last show.
