Michael Ruppert RIP (1951-2014)

man-and-dog

Michael C. Ruppert, investigative journalist, peak oil activist, and star of the movie Collapse, has taken his life. It appears to be confirmed that a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head on Sunday evening, just a few hours after his radio show, was the cause.

Mike’s history ranges from former LAPD officer, CIA whistle blower, 9/11 activist, peak oil/collapse awareness advocate, and most recently a spiritual student and teacher, seeking to leave collapse behind him and build upon a Terence Mckenna like peace for dealing with what lies ahead.

While Mike never did embrace Cold Fusion as a savior for our planet, his ultimate revelation and message was that a change in human consciousness was vital to make any sort of transition to the next soon to come phase of civilization. Many of us here believe the same, yet also believe Cold Fusion could be that exact vehicle for the necessary shift to occur.

And while Mike never got on board with Cold Fusion, he ironically was in a strong way responsible for ColdFusionNow.org coming into existence. Prior to CFN, we collectively had seen Mike speak live at least 5 different times, and it was his pressing voice on issues regarding energy depletion and societal collapse which became a major part of the incentives for re-investigating and pursuing advocacy towards Cold Fusion technology.

Why he exited remains a mystery, though he had hinted at the idea in recent years. Nevertheless he had moved back to his beloved Northern California only a month ago, and as seen by this recent craiglist posting, he appears energized to move forward – Mike’s Craigslist posting

His recent radio show on Sunday, only hours before his suicide, gave hints at some troubles, but ended with assuring his audience that he’d be back next week. Here’s the show.

Mike’s popularity was growing strong, as VICE recently did a spectacular 6 part series on Ruppert’s time in Colorado. Here’s part 6. Excellent, worth bookmarking and watching.

Mike was known heavily for accurately predicting future events, be it geopolitical, financial, and of course all things Collapse related. If we are to continue to follow his accurate tracking, then the last piece to the map he left us are his very final words which he ended the show with on Sunday night:

“ART is doing some amazing things lately, and that may be the wedge into consciousness that may spring something loose if we start seeing all kinds of new art spring up. Let’s hope for that. It’s very effective”

Update: Abby Martin gives a heartfelt goodbye to Mike. Be forewarned, she is unable to hold it together, and the viewer will be unable to not feel her emotion pour through. Abby shows us how much Ruppert really mattered.
