A sad loss

April 15, 2014



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
Mike’s seminal work ‘Crossing the Rubicon’ was a book which was instrumental in showing me my suspicions regarding the false nature of 9/11 were far from unfounded. It is a scholarly work of great complexity which I urge everyone to read.
Goodbye Mike, you will be sorely missed in the turbulent times ahead.

Michael C. Ruppert Suicide Note Released


THE HUNTER OF INVISIBLE PREY An Obituary for Michael C. Ruppert (1951-2014)


Note: It is no small tribute to Michael’s impact and importance that this little blog, which generally receives 30 to 70 hits per day, has had a staggering 5000 hits in just the last 24 hours, solely because of this announcement.

Mike,  you truly did make a difference. Godspeed brother.

Note 2: As I suppose is inevitable with a man like Mike, there has been a flurry of speculation on whether or not the great ‘conspiracy theorist’ was the victim of a conspiracy. Did he jump or was he pushed? I’m linking to these pieces by two of the people who knew him best in the hope that there can be a little more clarity on this going forward. It’s not for me to say what happened. I have my opinion but it’s irrelevant. The people who actually knew and loved him personally are far better placed to give the definitive answer.

Michael C Ruppert left four notes and a poem.


  1. What a waist of knowledge and insight. I first heard of him from one of Alex Jones’s movies.
    I hope he found what he was looking for~

    • Not quite a waste. He left a massive legacy of information in his books and articles. Awfully sad, none the less.

  2. With the amount of information that Michael knew, I can’t imagine the pain that he felt. Sometimes pain can torment even the strongest of souls.

    Thanks Michael for the insurmountable task you took on that awakened the likes of me and many others, you and your good deeds will be missed.

    • So true. We all struggle with the weight of this knowledge at times. Michael was at the sharp end more than most.
