By Louise Boyle


9/11 conspiracy theorist and investigative journalist Michael Ruppert has reportedly committed suicide.

The 63-year-old former narcotics investigator with the LAPD shot himself after his radio show, according to an announcement by author Carolyn Baker who was a guest on his final broadcast on Sunday.

Mr Ruppert was famous for his litany of conspiracy theories which encompassed the CIA to drugs, international politics, the oil industry, Wall Street and 9/11.

On her Facebook page, Ms Baker wrote: '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.

'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.... 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 hour hearts forever.'

Mr Ruppert, 63, has recently moved to the Rocky Mountains, a friend said in a Facebook announcement about his death

Dozens of fans left tributes to Mr Ruppert on his Facebook profile page.

Attempts by MailOnline to confirm Mr Ruppert's suicide were unsuccessful.

42 West, the New York publicity department for his 2009 documentary Collapse hung up the phone when contacted while the Milwaukee production office could offer no information.

Attempts to contact author Carolyn Baker were so far unsuccessful.

Phone numbers connected to Mr Ruppert's businesses were disconnected.

Max Mogren, who worked with Mr Ruppert for 15 months between 2011 and 2012, could not confirm his death today but said that a lot of his former colleagues' close friends had posted messages of condolence online.

Mr Mogren told MailOnline today that Mr Ruppert was very passionate and very committed to his work.

Mr Mogren said: 'He believed what he believed. All of his work was motivated by his love of humanity.'

After leaving the LAPD, Mr Ruppert started a  website From The Wilderness which claimed to expose government corruption. It included his claims that he had seen drug-dealing at the CIA.

Mr Ruppert gained notoriety by confronting
then-CIA Director John Deutch during a meeting in 1995 and telling him that he had seen CIA officers involved in drug-dealing.

He later claimed on his website that the CIA and American government was involved in 9/11.

In 2004, he published Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil.

The book alleged than former VP Dick Cheney had conspired with Wall Street and other government officials over the September 11 World Trade Center attacks.

In 2009, he starred in a documentary called Collapse where he spoke about his theories involving the demise of mankind following the economic and energy crises. 

His work was not without detractors. Many claimed that the investigator only used partial sources to qualify his work. Activist and writer Norman Solomon wrote: 'Some of the problem is in how he characterizes news reports. These citations can be narrowly factual yet presented in a misleading way. Yes, such-and-such newspaper reported that thus-and-so claim was made by so-and-so. The paper reported on the claim, but that doesn't mean the claim is true.'

Mr Ruppert had recently moved to the Rocky Mountains.

He is survived by his partner Jesse Re.

VIDEO: That Hillary shoe-throwing thing does look kind of fake, huh?


Rush wouldn’t doubt it, and neither would we.

Media Matters for America is hilarious. Its supposed mission is to expose conservatives saying outlandish things. But many of the things they “expose” are not all that outlandish at all, and the fact that MMA thinks they are really just exposes how delusional MMA is about the politicians they admire.

For instance: Is it outlandish to suggest Hillary Clinton would pull a stunt that is totally fake if she thinks it would help her political fortunes? Only a completely naive fool or the most partisan of Democrats would think so. But the fact that Rush Limbaugh merely acknowledged the possibility has gotten him in the crosshairs of Media Matters and, by extension, liberal media outlets like The New Yorker:

Several conservative pundits were branded “shoe truthers” by Talking Points Memo on Monday when they suggested Hillary Clinton might have arranged for a woman to throw a shoe at her last week. Their comments were probably satirical – or at least, we hope Fox News commentator Bernard Goldberg doesn’t actually think that, “Remembering the Bush incident, [Clinton] may have calculated that this would make her seem presidential.” We can’t say the same for Rush Limbaugh. When a caller asked about the incident on his radio show, Limbaugh confessed he hasn’t actually seen the video of Clinton’s footwear dodge, and is thus “ill-equipped to comment.” However, that didn’t prevent him from theorizing on how it all relates to Benghazi.

If you actually listen to Rush’s comments, he’s not really expressing the opinion that it’s fake as he acknowleges he hasn’t seen the video and isn’t all that interested in watching it. He merely suggests it’s never crazy to suspect phoniness and insincerity on the part of the Clintons. Listen for yourself:

As we see down below, the identity of the shoe-thrower is probably the best argument that the incident isn’t fake. She sounds pretty kooky.

But is it plausible to think Hillary and her people could have staged this? You have to start by recognizing that Hillary’s entire persona is fake. The notion that she is credible as a potential president of the United States is fake. The notion that her resume is impressive is fake, because she used her name and her by-associaiton-with-Bill political influence to get impressive-sounding jobs in which she did absolutely nothing. She faced fake gunfire in Bosnia. She made a fortune doing fake cattle futures trading. Her explanation for how she suddenly found those billing records was fake. Her exaggerated facial expressions are fake. Her marriage is fake. She is fake, fake, fake, fake, fake. So why would you consider it outlandish that any given event with which she is associated could be fake?

Let’s take a look at the incident itself:

I notice several things:

  • She doesn’t duck out of the way until the shoe is already passed her.
  • She doesn’t put her hands up to protect herself as you would expect when something is flying at your head. She sort of claps them. Does that look like a natural reflex action of someone who has just realized an object is flying at them?
  • Does the snarky grin on her face (check the screen grab above) look like the expression of someone who feels afraid, startled, alarmed or surprised?
  • At first she asks, “Was that a bat?” Have you ever been in a room where a bat was flying around? Once the bat has fluttered past your ear, do you just calmly say, “Was that a bat?” Or do you try to figure out where it is and how to catch or kill the damn thing?
  • Then: “Was that somebody throwing something at me?” Listen carefully to the inflection. I’m just asking: Did that sound sincere?
  • The Cirque de Soleil comment? Does that sound spontaneous? Or written for her?

Now, if it’s fake, why would she do it? Rush speculates it’s to make her Benghazi critics appear extreme. That way any time someone brings up Benghazi, you can immediately redirect the discussion so it’s not about her lies and incompetence, but about what a victim she is because those horrible people are throwing things at her.

That’s possible, but I’d say in a more basic sense it could be because she just likes to look like some sort of hero/victim who’s out there braving the flying shoes and whatever else those wild-eyed right-wingers are throwing at her.

Now, is there a case to be made that the incident could have been real? Of course. No matter how fake her reaction seems, that doesn’t necessarily prove that it is.

Ultimately the question probably turns on the identity of the shoe-thrower. Her name is Allison Ernst, and she is 36 years old and from Arizona. Supposedly she interrupted a pre-trial hearing for James Holmes and insisted he was innocent. She apparently is also suing Holmes.

She does seem a little unhinged, and that is surely an argument against the idea that she was part of a set-up involving Hillary and her people.

I guess you can decide what your own eyes are telling you. My rule when it comes to Hillary Clinton is: If it happened, it’s fake. You’ll rarely if ever go wrong presuming that.



IT'S NOT WHAT I EXPECTED! Tags: Living as a Master


Living as a Master is so different from anything I ever expected. I’ve imagined enlightenment in many different ways and almost all of them had one thing in common: that at long last I would gain ultimate power over my own life.

To manifest money out of thin air. To have people flocking to hear what I have to say. To instantly heal myself and others. To drive as fast as I want and never get a speeding ticket. To teleport my body to anywhere I want to be without need of airplane or automobile. To manifest the perfect lover or the perfect dream home at will. To make the war-mongers and stupid people see the folly of their ways and make peace on Earth. And on and on. Who among you hasn’t imagined that being an enlightened master would include at least some of those expressions of power?

Living as a Master is so different than anything I ever imagined. The more I realize my enlightenment the more I discover that real mastery is not about gaining power or control over anything, including myself, and it’s not about healing or fixing my own or the world’s problems or even creating the life of my dreams. Rather, being a master is about ultimate allowing. It is about living my life with no power at all and allowing everything.

Living as a Master is so very ordinary. I go through life a lot like everybody else, with all the same needs and concerns and pains and joys. I eat and sleep and get tired and sore just like everybody else, and for now I still have to take medicine to keep my blood sugar in check.

I have debts and need a constant stream of money to pay the bills, to buy fuel and repairs for my camper-van home, and to pay for places to park when I get tired of the parking lots. My mind still freaks out sometimes too, like it did the other day when for the first time on this particular adventure I didn’t know where to go next.

Since I left what used to be my home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, last December, I always knew what my next destination was: Santa Fe to take care of some clients. Eugene, Oregon to deliver my beloved cat, Toby, to my former partner, because he hates travelling and he needs a home that doesn’t move.

The Oregon coast for a little ocean energy. Ashland, to visit my niece and nephew. Yreka, California, to have lunch with an old friend and fellow master. And then Redding, and suddenly I have no more plan. I don’t know anyone here and the city is not friendly to parking-lot surfers, and I don’t have a feeling for which direction to go from here. And to make matters worse, in the Shoud just before I got here Adamus yelled at people who live in their cars. Now what?

But even my mind is starting to get on board with my enlightenment, so the freak-out was very mild compared to times past. The fact is that I have a very nice home that serves this point in my life extremely well, even if it is on wheels, and it has the advantage of being able to park in many beautiful places. But where now?


The forecast was calling for rain throughout California and I had no one left on my list of people to visit in this part of the country, and I had a backlog of work to catch up on. Something inside said, Just stay here for a while.


Okay, but where? They don’t like people spending nights in parking lots here.


There’s a beautiful RV park down on the river.


Yes, but RV parks cost money!


So?    This week you need a home.


So I went to the RV park and rented a space for a week, and the past several days of pouring rain have been a wonderful inner nurturing time with myself. In a couple days when my week is up I’ll either know where I’m going or I’ll pay for more time, but it doesn’t matter, for this is a beautiful place and above all else this journey is about spending time with me.

Living as a Master is the most extraordinary thing I have ever experienced. As I write this I see that living without power is also living without worry, for what’s the point of worrying when, by your own choice, you have no power and can’t do anything about it anyway?

When I make the conscious choice to truly allow I find that the worry fades away into a simple and trusting surrender, and then Grace comes and EVERYTHING works out. Everything I need is just there when I need it, and so much of what I want, too.

Life is becoming truly magical in such an ordinary way, and more and more of those miracles that I used to crave the power to perform just happen. Not on demand, but exactly when they are needed and in the most surprisingly ordinary of ways.

Living as a Master is not at all what I expected, but it sure is grand! There are getting to be quite a few people who know exactly what I mean and who will tell you all the same things in their own way, and if you want to hear more then you’ll want to check out Living Masters, our newest Awakening Zone show.

Every fourth Thursday host Mary Beth Shewan talks with real people, real Shaumbra, who are already living their enlightenment. Their stories are fascinating, poignant, often humorous, and so inspiring to anyone who is beginning to experience their own mastery, so don’t miss it!
