Michael Ruppert
Known for Former editor of From The Wilderness, Exposure of CIA in drug dealing, CEO of CollapseNet.com

Mike Ruppert was working for LAPD when he uncovered evidence of the CIA's dealing in drugs. After raising the matter, he was threatened with death, and survived 3 assassination attempts. His most famous video moment was on November 15th, 1996, at a town hall meeting at Locke High School in Los Angeles to allay citizen's fears about drug dealing.


Ruppert confronted the Director of Central Intelligence John Deutch from the audience. He stood up and said, "I am a former Los Angeles Police narcotics detective. I worked South Central Los Angeles and I can tell you, Director Deutch, emphatically and without equivocation, that the Agency has dealt drugs in this country for a long time." Deutch, visibly shocked by the forthrightness of Mikel Ruppert's denunciation, feigned interest and stuttered out a reply, but although Ruppert submitted documents to the Select Intelligence Committees of both Houses, it remains only a document submitted in advance of testimony and has not been placed in the Congressional Record.

Mike Ruppert became a dissident journalist, and founded From The Wilderness, a newsletter and website dedicated to investigating political cover-ups. His knowledge of criminal investigation has proved very helpful in looking into hidden events such as the US military drills carried out on September 11th. He has published influential books on Peak_Oil and US Foreign Policy. His 2009 film, Collapse was successful at reaching a wide audience. He worked on Collapsenet, a website-based network of people working on self-sufficient communities.

He took his own life in 2014. He is sorely missed by many.
