So far the only place reporting it is Raw Story. I'm sure some of you here know who he is and what he's left behind for the rest of us. For those who don't here is a little recap.




The conspiracy theorist Mike Ruppert shot and killed himself Sunday night after recording his Lifeboat Hour radio show. His death was announced Monday night in a Facebook post by the blogger and author Carolyn Baker, who assured her followers that Ruppert’s death was “not a ‘fake’ suicide.”





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.”


Personally I found the write up on Raw Story a bit out of line with a slant against "Conspiracy Theories" and those who follow them. Because we all know how nothing is ever a conspiracy and all those who might think such things are just crazy. But I'm not going to bother with all that right now. Just wanted to say farewell to a man who spent many years of his life trying to expose some of what's really going on in the world and to say thanks for the effort. We'll take it from here.

So what do the ATS folk think of Mr. Rupert??? Any fans or critics???

Murder. Just like all the other truth-teller ‘suicides.’ Those brave men and women never kill themselves.

You can be certain that he killed himself. Watch his last "documentary". He talks openly about it. He was a broken man in the end. He did as much as one man in his position could be expected to do, but his inability to stop what he saw going on left him a tragic figure.
