  1. ashes to ashes…dust to star dust

    I just wanted to add my voice of condolence to the loss all Michael’s friends, family, colleagues and admirers have suffered.

    I had never heard of this man, but only through learning on the internet have I encountered the name, from the keyboards of people in US and UK.

    Watching the video here moved me to tears.
    What an heroic man. His legacies live on, as those who follow in his footsteps finish what Michael started.

    Thank you Abby and all at Dandelion Salad

    • Thanks for your comment, babushka. You are right that his legacy will live on and more people will learn about him and his work. There are several links at the end of the post of interviews and/or articles by Mike.

  2. It was such a shock looking at the headline about Abby Martin’s tribute, I shuddered as I clicked on the URL, hoping it was not what it sounded like.

    Michael C. Ruppert was one of the most honest and courageous men I have ever met and those of us who knew him, or saw Mike on film, listening to him at lectures,and his outstanding contribution to humanity for telling the truth on a wide array of subjects by many distinguished (and authentic) writers from his defunct website, From The Wilderness, he will surely be missed!

    May your soul rest in peace, brother Michael!

  3. Michael C. Ruppert’s book Crossing the Rubicon:The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil was the book which introduced me to the whole world of TRULY investigating the 9/11/01 terrorism (and its cover-up) used so successfully to reinvigorate the Empire’s quest for global domination at all costs, both to lives and the planet. I am grateful to him for that, and sorry that he saw fit to end a very productive life.

  4. from Jenna Orkin

    In response to the internet sages who have concluded, in the face of all known evidence from the people who were most intimately familiar with him as well as with the admittedly real dangers that had faced him over the course of his life as an investigative journalist, that Mike did not kill himself but was in fact murdered, his suicidal ideation goes back at least eight years. As a small example, below are excerpts from a few of his emails sent from Venezuela in 2006. In addition, he would call at any and all hours to be talked out of jumping from the roof or offing himself in some other way.There is absolutely no doubt or question about it, Mike Ruppert took his own life.

  5. Shattering tribute by Abby Martin, says so much from so many angles and is a monument to human frailty, perhaps that especially of those with a public face who fight on and never let that public face drop, except perhaps, alone in those witching hour moments, never leaning, confiding, or sharing a burden when they need to.

    Thanks to Abby for having the courage to air it when she was so affected by grief.

    Mike you leave a gaping hole in a monumental fight, you did so much more than any one person could. You leave a hole in many hearts, may you ever walk in the sun.

    Thanks to all who fight against corporate and political wickednesses, t greed, wars, illegal invasions, pollutions, food altering genetics and so much more. We seldom acknowledge enough, then suddenly it is too late.

  6. Thank you to Abby, it’s a poignant tribute.

    I watched Apocalypse, Man not long ago and referred to it in a comment on DS. Michael was clearly a powerfully motivated truth teller, and his courage was exemplary.

    His irrepressible commitment will be missed, but he is ever present, in the company now of those indomitable spirits that do not fear death, but walk on confidently, in their own moccasins.
