Ruppert, 53, is the Publisher/Editor of From the Wilderness or FTW,
a newsletter he founded in March 1998 by mailing out 68 copies to
friends and researchers. FTW is now read by more than 14,000 subscribers
in 40 countries including 35 members of the US Congress, the intelligence
committees of both houses, and professors at 30 universities around
the world. Through the newsletter and his website at www.fromthewilderness.com,
Mike has pioneered innovative analysis and groundbreaking original
stories on the impact of $5-600 billion per year in drug money moving
through the US economy and the illegal covert operations which maintain
control of that cash flow for US economic interests.
9-11-01 he has been the point man in breaking major stories involving
government foreknowledge, corruption and violations of the Constitution.
He has also pioneered the effort to educate the world about the consequences
of Peak Oil -- the fact that the world is running out of hydrocarbon
energy, and what this might mean for human civilization.
Honors graduate of UCLA in Political Science (1973), Mike is a former
LAPD narcotics investigator who discovered CIA trafficking in drugs
in 1977. After attempting to expose this he was forced out of LAPD
in 1978 while earning the highest rating reports possible and having
no pending disciplinary actions. In 1996, after 18 years of struggle,
he finally achieved one of his deepest wishes in a face to face public
encounter with then CIA Director John Deutch on national television.
Washington sources later told Mike that Deutch's mishandling of the
encounter cost him a guaranteed appointment as Secretary of Defense.
November 28, 2001 Mike gave his first post 9-11 lecture at Portland
State University, which was attended by more than 1,000 and resulted
in a standing ovation. FTW's video, The Truth and Lies About 9-11,
has sold more than 10,000 copies. It includes special exclusive interviews
with Representatives Ron Paul (R-TX), Cynthia McKinney (D-GA), Barbara
Lee (D-CA), Professor Peter Dale Scott, (UC, Berkeley), Professor
John Metzger (Michigan State) and Catherine Austin Fitts (former Assistant
Secretary of Housing and Managing Director, Dillon Read).
