Official Narrative Does Not Ask The Hard Questions. Why?
Now that everyone has had time to read or listen to the official narrative about the alleged suicide of Michael C. Ruppert you may find yourself, as you read this report, asking why the official narrative didn’t include these relevant questions and red flags.
1) The scene of my Michael Ruppert’s alleged death was handled as an unattended death by suicide and not as if foul play could have been involved. Consequently his blood was only tested for common substances such as Benadryl or alcohol. Extensive testing for uncommon substances, such as GHB or Scopolamine, was not done. The body was cremated without undue delay.
(below: From the Toxicology report)
2) The identification of Michael Ruppert’s body was made by one man, the executor of his will, after dark by flashlight by eyesight, with the NAPA Sheriff’s coroner present. No effort to identify the body by fingerprints, DNA or dental analysis was made. Again, the body was cremated without undue delay.
(below: From the NAPA Sheriff’s Incident Report: Identification of the body by the executor of Michael Ruppert’s will.)
3) Within 48 hours of Michael Ruppert’s alleged death ‘close friends’ announced it was suicide by his own hand and asked the public not to spread rumors and/or conspiracy theories. An official cause of death had not been ruled and no toxicology report had been completed. How could they be sure Michael Ruppert had not been drugged? How did they know for certain he was not dead of something else before the gunshot to the head?
(below: The co-host of Michael Ruppert’s radio show ‘The Life Boat Hour’ reports on his alleged suicide.)
4) We are asked to believe what Michael Ruppert’s ‘close friends’ say about the events surrounding his alleged suicide because they are his close friends. But if an undercover FBI agent can successfully infiltrate the ‘Outlaws’ biker gang for 8 years before making arrests isn’t it possible agents had infiltrated close to Michael Ruppert? Can we trust his ‘close friends’?
5) Michael Ruppert’s alleged final email is pointed to as indisputable evidence that he committed suicide by his own hand but
a) there is a possibility his computer was on and his email open and the assassin simply typed the email and hit send or
b) the possibility exists that Michael Ruppert had his password saved on his computer and the assassin simply logged on with the push of a button or
c) since several of Michael Ruppert’s ‘close friends’ had access to his Facebook page (before and after his alleged suicide) because he gave away his password, isn’t it conceivably possible he gave his email password out as well and isn’t it possible that person(s) sent the alleged final email or
d) isn’t it conceivable that Michael Ruppert’s email was hacked and the final email sent by a CIA operative or
d) isn’t it possible he wrote the email under duress or
e) isn’t it possible Michael Ruppert wrote the final email willingly if one considers the possibility of a hoax.
6) The alleged suicide notes are pointed to as indisputable proof Michael Ruppert took his own life by his own hands but could they
a) have been written under duress or
b) been fabricated by forgery experts at the CIA or
c) written willingly if one considers the possibility of his alleged suicide being an orchestrated hoax.
(Note: there has been no handwriting analysis of the alleged suicide notes that this author is aware of.)
Reasons why Michael C. Ruppert would NOT have Committed Suicide
- Michael Ruppert had just returned from Seattle where he was interviewed for something that might later go on ‘mainstream TV’ as a series or two-hour special. He mentions FOX News and CNN. He was upbeat about his new gig and he was pleased to have a new source of income. He mentioned on his final broadcast he was under contract.
- He was very much in love with an attractive, younger woman.
- He was crazy about his dog ‘Rags’: just months prior to his alleged suicide he halted his entire life for 5 days when his canine went missing. When he found Rags he resumed his life.

4. He ended his final radio broadcast by saying “We’ll be back to do this again next week.” and “We’ll see you next week on The Life Boat Hour.”
A Full Investigation Was Warranted But Not Launched
The official narrative about the alleged suicide of Michael Ruppert was accepted without question. Without having access to a toxicology report or official cause of death much of the so-called alternative media went to press with the same story that Michael Ruppert’s ‘close friends’ were promoting. Didn’t Michael Ruppert, the man who wrote about C.I.A. drug smuggling and 9/11 being an inside job deserve a full investigation to rule out foul play if nothing else? How could his ‘close friends’ be so sure he killed himself without a full analysis of his blood for every conceivable possible substance the C.I.A. could have dosed him with? If only someone had insisted on a full investigation, as if there was a possibility of foul play, there would be no lingering questions or red flags. (It is interesting to note that on the incident report of the night in question, and in the video testimony of the executor of Michael Ruppert’s will, there is no indication that authorities were informed that Michael Ruppert was the man who wrote about CIA drug smuggling and 9/11 being an inside job and that the C.I.A might have assassinated him and staged it to look like a suicide. Instead he is listed in generic terms: his occupation being a ‘writer’ and his employer being ‘free-lance’. NAPA Sheriffs were also aware that Michael Ruppert was former law enforcement by the block print on one of the suicide notes as stated in the executor’s video.)
(below: From the Incident Report)
A full investigation might have included:
- a search for shoeprints on the property in question, making plaster casts and comparing them to the shoeprints of those who had permission/reason to be on the property
- a thorough search, during daylight hours, of Michael Ruppert’s trailer, car and the property he lived on
- asking neighbors if they had heard a gunshot or gunshots or seen any suspicious activity
- searching nearby dirt roads for car tracks that may have pulled off the road
- interviewing friends, acquaintances or former band members and asking if they knew anything or had any suspicions etc.
- handwriting analysis of the alleged suicide notes
- fingerprinting of the possible crime scene including Michael Ruppert’s computer keyboard, the door to his trailer, his car and the gun itself
- a full ID of the body found including DNA, dental and fingerprinting
- a full toxicology report and extensive testing for uncommon substances such as Scopolamine, GHB or other substances that Michael Ruppert could have been dosed with
- analysis/testing of food and drink found inside Michael Ruppert’s trailer for drugs/chemical substances
- ballistics tests to confirm the bullet came from the handgun that was found on the scene
- polygraph testing of any persons of interest, including Michael Ruppert’s ‘close friends’
- detectives accounting for in detail the final months and weeks leading up to his alleged suicide, what he was reporting on, broadcasting about and all his FaceBook posts, emails and related correspondence or phone calls
- contacting the F.B.I. and asking for assistance
The simple fact is I would be unable to write this article had the case of Michael C. Ruppert’s alleged suicide received a full investigation as if the possibility of foul play existed. Why did his ‘close friends’ not insist on this? It is difficult for me to believe his ‘close friends’ did not think to mention to investigators the possibility that the C.I.A. might have assassinated Mr. Ruppert and staged the scene to look like suicide. It is difficult for me to believe his ‘close friends’ did not feel the need to have extensive testing of his blood for uncommon drugs such as Scopolamine or GHB. If they really wanted people not to spread rumors and conspiracy theories wouldn’t the prudent thing to do have been to insist on a detailed and full investigation including extensive blood work right from the start? Shouldn’t the F.B.I. have been notified immediately? Again, we are talking about a man who could have been assassinated by the C.I.A. for exposing their involvement in drug dealing and money laundering, is it possible these people do not understand the capabilities of such an organization?
Perhaps we will never know the truth about the alleged suicide of Michael C. Ruppert. Perhaps we are not meant to. But it is my hope that this article will cause those that accepted the official story as truth to begin to question it, to begin to doubt it, as I have since the beginning. Only by casting doubt on the official narrative can we have a chance of forcing a real investigation by State or Federal authorities. And anything less than a full investigation would be to dishonor a man who spent his life exposing government corruption at great risk to his personal health.
Several months prior to his alleged suicide Michael C. Ruppert was assisting me in reporting on the world’s largest provable cover-up: Plume-Gate (if you are unfamiliar with this grandiose multi-agency cover-up I link to my abstract and free eBook at the end of this article). He also helped me bring the fight to the hoax ‘anti-nuclear’ movement. The bogus ‘anti-nuclear’ movement refuses to acknowledge the contents of these documents and instead appears to be performing ‘perception management’ on the American public. To this day there continues to be a full media blackout on Plume-Gate and the NRC FOIA documents pertaining to Fukushima. Plume-Gate is much bigger than 9/11 and it is all provable. Multiple agencies participated and the cover-up goes all the way to the office of the President. A study was done that projected 1.3 MILLION AMERICAN FATALITIES by the year 2030. Michael Ruppert was bringing awareness to these subjects and I suggest to you it is something that a man of his level of attention and contacts (members of Congress were known to be on his mailing list) would be silenced over. Plume-Gate is something the establishment wishes to hide from you forever if possible.
Below are some screencaptures from FaceBook posts of Mr. Ruppert and links to two videos that show that we were ruffling feathers in a big way:
Author’s Note: To my knowledge none of those asked to answer the questions in the post above ever did and interestingly enough, they still won’t do what Michael Ruppert did: cover Plume-Gate and the NRC FOIA documents pertaining to Fukushima. Why?
(Below: an email Michael C. Ruppert sent to me with an ominous tone. Had we gone too far?)
(Below: Michael Ruppert, prior to his alleged suicide on the Unit 4 offload hoax)
(Below: CollapseNet posts about Michael Ruppert and Unit 4 after his alleged suicide. Is this a cover-up?)
(Below: Christina Consolo aka: RadChick has been spreading disinfo on Unit 4 for years with impunity. She is a known associate of Arnie Gundersen, who in my opinion fronts the hoax anti-nuclear movement that refuses to acknowledge the contents of the NRC FOIA documents that PROVE a multi-agency cover-up…Michael Ruppert liked to point out that these FOIA documents are court certified and admissible as evidence in a court of law.)
(Below: Christina Consolo aka: RadChick spreads disinfo and lies on the Unit 4 spent fuel in an article titled ‘Fukushima apocalypse: Years of ‘duct tape fixes’ could result in ‘millions of deaths’’. Read Chapter 4 of my book ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’ and you’ll find 100 pages of evidence that says the fuel burned up.)
(Below: Christina Consolo aka: RadChick attempts to convince people Michael Ruppert’s suicide was genuine. Note how they focus on the VICE interview where Mr. Ruppert does mention suicide. Was the VICE documentary and Michael Ruppert’s mention of suicide to be exploited after staging his assassination to look like suicide? Was Michael Ruppert killed in an effort to keep Plume-Gate and the fact that all the fuel of unit 4 burned up and released it’s radiation to the atmosphere from the American public?)
(Below: From my article titled ‘Approach, Infiltrate, Influence, Sabotage: Patterns of Deception in the ‘Alternative’ Media and ‘Anti’ Nuclear Movement’…. Shane Russell helped me with FOIA documentation relating to Fukushima but plied me with bogus information as well. He is friends with Chistina Consolo and I suspect Arnie Gundersen as well (see story linked above)… and he attempted to bait me into slandering Mr. Gundersen. Notice how he attempts to sabotage my interview with Michael Ruppert the day of the show (12/1/13). I had to apologize later to Mr. Ruppert and advise him that since we connected, people near me were acting strangely and I hope no one I knew had offended him. After parting ways with Mr. Shane Russell, he went on to discredit me at every chance.)

Global Warming, Climate Change and Collapse Theorists Suffer Selective Memory Loss
By Hatrick ‘Hattie’ Penry
August 13th, 2015
It appears to me that there are several large, organized groups circulating around the internet promoting either ‘Global Warming’, ‘Climate Change’ or the ‘Collapse Theory’. Those participating in the promotion of these subjects can be found on FaceBook, YouTube, Blogs, Websites, online radio shows and other places online and in social media. It is of course very nice of them to alert us to the obvious fact that our environment is degrading and there will be consequences to pay for it, but it seems they are suffering from a form of selective memory loss: they have omitted any discussion of the possibility that these doomsday scenarios could be intentionally engineered.
This should be a red flag for everyone. For instance, when I read an article about ‘climate change’ in the Huffington Post and I see no mention of geo-engineering or climate modification I know something is wrong. Is it rational to discuss climate change without pointing out that it may be intentionally manufactured? Fair and unbiased reporting demands that all sides of a story are covered, even if one of those sides shines a negative light on the establishment.
“In the broadest sense, weather-modification can be divided into two major categories: suppression and intensification of weather patterns. In extreme cases, it might involve the creation of completely new weather patterns, attenuation or control of severe storms, or even alteration of global climate on a far-reaching and/or long-lasting scale.” from “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025” a research paper submitted to the Air Force in August of 1996
I’ve noticed this tactic before. Back in 2012, not long after I began to write about the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Freedom of Information documents pertaining to Fukushima and the cover-up revealed within, I realized that the ‘alternative media’ and the so-called ‘anti-nuclear’ movement were ignoring all the evidence I had accumulated. They talked an awful lot about how bad radiation was. They talked an awful lot about how bad Fukushima was. But they seemed to have suffered from selective memory loss over the NRC FOIA documents. It was glaring. It was obvious. And still to this day how many broadcasters, journalists and bloggers have you seen covering the NRC FOIA documents?
“I do agree that there has been a deafening silence in the alternative media over this massive government orchestrated cover-up. It’s not about the alternative media not covering the disaster. It is about the alternative [media] not covering the recently released documents that prove there was a concerted government cover-up.” -Author/Blogger Alexander Higgins in 2012
What else could I conclude but that the so-called ‘anti-nuclear’ movement was some sort of giant disinformation ring, a shill-network if you will. Their main strategy is to flood social media with myriad discussions about Fukushima but to avoid any talk of the massive multi-agency cover-up revealed in the FOIA transcripts. The overall effect is that the casual observer will, 99 times out of a hundred, come across the media of this massive disinformation network instead of the media of a handful of truth tellers: their numbers are many, our numbers are few. Most casual investigators, searching for the truth about Fukushima, or climate change for that matter, will never see all the evidence they will need to make an informed decision.
It is an illusion that you are being told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. It is in reality a confidence trick. A sin of omission. And, as I have explained before, like cutting off a gangrenous toe to save the leg. The establishment is willing to give you some dirt, maybe a lot of dirt, on their dirty deeds, but the worst of the worst, the most damaging information is being withheld. Do you understand that this can only work by having a massive network of ‘perception management specialists’ at the disposal of the establishment? A network of shills large enough to flood the internet with countless superficial issues of a lower priority thus covering up the most serious issues that might really lead to charges and someone going to jail. This is the only reason that Plume-Gate has never ‘gone viral’. This is the reason the public talks about Climate Change whilst knowing nothing of the topic of geo-engineering. The information monopoly is too strong. Their numbers are too many. Their influence too strong.
And so the establishment must be pleased about the selective memory loss that causes promoters of Global Warming, Climate Change, or an impending collapse to forget to mention the possibility of intentional climate modification. Do they not consider the possibility that the degrading environment we are experiencing is being hastened by the ongoing geo-engineering campaign? To be sure man’s activity on earth is having a detrimental effect on our environment and will ultimately cause a collapse if unchecked, that I do not deny. But isn’t it possible that intentional geo-engineering is hastening this process? Shouldn’t this be a part of any logical discussion of global warming, climate change or a future collapse? It may be up to you to ensure that it is.
F5 Tornado Slams Fort Knox; Rooftop Hole Reveals Empty Shelves, Missing Gold
By Hatrick Penry
A category F5 tornado struck a direct blow to the Ft. Knox gold reserve yesterday, peeling back the roof of the famous gold vault and revealing row upon row of empty shelves and bare floors to a WRON helicopter camera crew as it surveyed damage just hours after the storms passing. Video footage of the roofless vault and missing gold has ‘gone viral’ on the internet and sparked public outrage across much of the country: many Americans are calling foul-play.
In an emergency press conference Saturday night at the White House, officials called for calm heads to prevail as a host of specialists were brought in to explain the missing gold. Most notable of these experts was former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld; now famous for his ongoing 10 year quest to find and return the 2.3 trillion dollars lost by the Pentagon back in September of 2001.
Rumsfeld, the first to speak at the hour-long press conference, explained his presence and what he thought had happened to the nation’s strategic gold reserve:
“They call me in when Americans are yelling all Henny-Penny-like ‘the sky is falling, the sky is falling!’ or in this case ‘the gold is missing, the gold is missing!’ Ok? So, I’m here to help explain to these same Americans where a few bars of gold have gotten off to in a thunderstorm. First, you’ve got to understand there are known ‘knowns’, in other words, things we know that we know about. We know about tornados and gold bars and trucks being carried aloft in high winds, right? Are you following me?
Now, there are known ‘unknowns’, things we know we don’t know about, like anti-gravity saucer craft and tractor beams and protective atmospheres on other planets made of gold particles-and the aliens commissioned to go get that gold-are you following me still? Ok, then there are unknown ‘unknowns’, and obviously I’m unable to tell you what that would have been that made the gold disappear…because by its very nature it is unknown.
Now, the good news in all this is that after speaking at length with NOAA and other meteorological experts, I am convinced that if a semi-truck can be carried off by one of these tornado-things, then a bar of gold can be too! And I am here today to tell you ladies and gentlemen, that I will not stop until I find and return ALL of the missing gold even if that tornado carried it all the way to China!”
As a security team hurriedly pulled Rumsfeld off-stage for unknown reasons, the President was quick to step in:
“Now let me be perfectly clear,” said President Obama,” all of the gold from Fort Knox is NOT in China, I repeat the missing gold from Fort Knox is NOT in China. Ok? That’s just crazy… it’s a crazy idea, let me put it this way, we send them more tungsten than gold these days, if you know what I mean.”
When asked by Jake Tapper of ABC News what he thought had happened to the nations gold reserve, the President responded:
“Well Jake, I don’t want to leap to conclusions, you know that this investigation is an ongoing process, but I will say this…I promise, if re-elected for a 3rd term, to make it a personal project of mine to get that gold back and that’s a promise you can take to the ba…that’s a promise you can count on!”
At Obama’s request, Timothy Geithner was also present and spoke in an effort to reassure skeptical Americans and investors everywhere that business will not be affected in any way:
“It doesn’t matter to me if the gold is being hidden at the Nazi moon base, I mean ‘a’ Nazi moon base…’a’ Nazi moon base, yeah, because I can make Publishers Clearing House look like an Egyptian scribe with a quill pen, comprende? You just give ‘ole Timmy a dollar figure of what was lost, heck take that figure and DOUBLE IT, and I’ll print it up and have delivered to Fort Knox in time for Corn Flakes in the morning!”
Within 24 hours after the passing of the F5 tornado, the Army Corps had covered the rooftop opening of the vault with a series of giant tarps to ‘keep further water damage from occurring’, and a ‘no-fly-zone’ had been established over Hardin County, Kentucky.
