The Liberty movement lost two great patriots yesterday.

Bob Chapman died Monday, June 4, 2012

Bob Chapman, editor of the International Forecaster had been fighting pancreatic cancer. We will all miss him terribly. He was a hero in his tireless efforts to educate people of the world to the plans of the globalist banking cabal.

Bob's Website: http://theinternationalforecaster.com/

We have to honor those who endured making huge sacrifices, attempts on their lives, who were ridiculed and ostracized exposing the global elite and their corrupt system. Tom and Bob laid down the foundations and shared with us their research and knowledge needed to defeat the tyrants. These men must not be forgotten, their sacrifices cost them everything standing by the truth, let us and history hold them in high regard because they were TRUE PATRIOTS. They have passed the torch of liberty to us, so let's show them that their work and sacrifice were not in vain.

Courageous men they were,

dearly remembered and truly missed they will be.

Info-warriors before most folks knew,

that there is a war on against the free.

Champman had many years and miles of experience over Cryer's much later-in-life front-line combat efforts. Both were expert witnesses to a lot of outrageous actions by those who ought to know and act much better than they did, to say the least.

They were always gentlemen, but you wouldn't want to mess with them on their turf, eh?

very sad

it was an article about Tom in WND in 2007 before trial that got me thinking and started my plunge down the rabbit hole ... months of research brought me to Aaron Russo's film ... watching that movie introduced me to RP ... which I then discovered he was running for president ... which brought me to a Ron Paul meet up group ... which turned me on to the DailyPaul ... and today I am one of many in the ranks of the Awake.

Thank You sir for your courage to stand up for liberty ... you are and were a patriot ... see you in heaven in a few years.

this is....

very sad, and a great loss to the liberty movement. I will sorely miss hearing him on AJ....RIP Bob Chapman and thank you for all you have done to bring the light into the darkness.

A job well done.



Bob Chapman : (1935 - 2012) Rest In Peace My Good Friend ..

I received word today from my good friend Frank Underhill that Bob Chapman had passed away Monday, June 04, 2012. Bob had frequently advised yours truly on several investment opportunities. I loved that man very much. I will mourn him.

So very sad to have lost one of the key guys in the liberty movement. In recent years Bob and his family had received many death threats for the damage he had done to the NWO.

He was a very significant contributer to Gary Allen's book, "Non Dare Call It Conspiracy". At least 5 million copies of that book were sold before I first read it in the early 1980's.

I can't tell you what a blow this been for our liberty movement.

Bob Chapman...R.I.P.

Ps, I was given a heads up concerning Bob Chapman's health situation on "Coast to Coast". Both George Noory and Alex Jones were aware of Bob's fight with Pancreatic Cancer and had informed the listening audience as to Bob's status. He had returned to the U.S. from living offshore and to spend time with his family before passing.

Yesterday, Alex Jones said that Robert Chapman was very sick.

He has pancreatic cancer, and he has returned to the U.S. to be with his family. There is no official announcement of his death on the net, and there is no word of his passing on his website.


Oh my...

I used to listen to Bob Chapman on AJ, but with Ron Paul running I haven't had the time to tune it. What a loss, he was one of those truth tellers, I liked how he gave facts, not very excitable like AJ. He'll be missed!

The sources I heard it from

The sources I heard it from were Joyce Riley on GCN's The Power Hour this morning. Bob's been on her show many times. She was also supposed to have Tom on yesterday morning, but when they called to get him on, Tom's wife said he'd passed away during the night.

You can listen here...

and also confirmed by Frank Underhill of Underhill Securities here...


It was also reported by Robby Noel on RBN.


So sad.

This has no been a good year for our movement. Hoppy Heidelberg died in April now the great Bob Chapman. R.I.P. Hoppy, Bob, and Tom.

RIP Tom Cryer

You were a good and decent man who fought the good fight - a rare breed these days. Thanks for having the courage to tread where so many others would not dare to go. You will be missed. Your work however, will hopefully live on.

This page has an email from

This page has an email from his daughter about his ill health:



Let's confirm this somehow, very sad if true

Here is the original story, and it is not our Bob Chapman. He did not live in the states and he wasn't 82 according to another poster here.


Please correct original post.

I apologize, I was the hasty one. Not that this is confirmed so far as I can tell, but this is one source for the story:


2 very good men,

who fought hard for Liberty.

I listened to Bob a lot, got his newsletter in the past.

Someone needs to get this

Someone needs to get this straight. There is a Bob Chapman on wikipedia, who is an English soccer player. It's saying he died today. There is a link on that page to some NWO site, which links to an obit for the same guy from England. It's not the Bob Chapman from the International Forecaster, the only who used to be on every Friday on the Alex Jones show. That soccer guy was 82 years old. The Bob Chapman from the International Forecaster is only 72, and I've never heard a single word about him being in bad health. He's just been too busy to be on the Alex Jones show lately.

This took me like 2 minutes to figure out. C'mon, do some better reporting :)

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.


Does Have Pacreatic Cancer my friend. As has been reported on AJ's show, Bill Deagles show and Jeff Rense show.

I didn't hear it. They must

I didn't hear it. They must have just mentioned it and passed on.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Dam! Its looking more & more

Dam! Its looking more & more that it is true. I'll have to wait for conformation from SGT.

Is it possible you have the wrong Bob Chapman

Here's a Wikipedia on a former football player of the same name who died yesterday.

And I can find nothing about the Bob Chapman you are talking about dying. His website has an article written June 3 on it's home page.

I was wondering why Bob

I was wondering why Bob hasn't been on Alex Jones for a while. He was a very regular guest every friday until recently. Sorry to hear, he was one of the first guests I remember hearing on Alex's show.

Two shorten the road.

OMG! Jaw dropped! No way! RIP Tom, but Bob Chapman??

I don't know why, but even though I know that he's of that age of natural passing, I expected him to be with us when we fully restore our natural rights!

Jesus, that's the saddest news...

RIP Bob. You'll NEVER be forgotten.

Old warriors fight on, for eternity.

Bless you, on your journey beyond.

Are you sure about Bob Chapman?

I've seen or heard nothing about it.

I had been wondering why I hadn't heard much from Bob lately.

Not to mention Tom Cryer who I admire as well. This is sad news indeed.


stinks. Terrible news.

I have quite literally

I have quite literally listened to Bob on various shows 4-5 per week for the last 4 years as well as being a reader of the IF. In 2008 he kept me from making what would have been a poor financial decision and guided me down a much wiser path.

I will forvever be grateful as is anyone who took Bob's advice (and not just on matters of money.)

R.I.P. Bob. You helped countless people and left the world a better place.

WOW is right!

I remember years ago supporting Bob during his Hunger Fast. And Tommy too - on the same day!

If there was a third I'd be suspicious...

Rights are like muscles; you must exercise them to keep them fit, or they will atrophy and die.

Please correct your post. Tom Cryer was NOT a "tax protestor."

That is a specific legal and derogatory term the IRS uses.

Since he was acquitted, the label does not fit and is entirely inappropriate, especially in remembrance of him.

I would say more accurately, he was a "tax honesty advocate."

Cryer initially thought tax honesty positions were nuts. He had a client who he was advising to tread lightly and carefully in that area, and that "everyone knew" the IRS was 'right' on the issue that EVERYONE must file.

The client challenged Cryer to go look up the law since he was a lawyer. So Cryer did. What he found was so astonishing, he became convinced himself that his client was on to something and that what we "all know" today about the tax code, is NOT what is really in there. He then began to cease filing his own returns. You can visit his website for the rest of the story.

I urge anyone with interest in either gentleman's work to quickly mirror their site with Site Sucker, or HTTP tracker or some such software before they go dark.

You are so right about Tommy

But I just want to mention that it wasn't a client of his, it was a fellow lawyer who worked with him who brought it to his attention and challenged him. Tommy, to his credit, took two years and did all the research necessary to satisfy in his own mind why the average American did not owe the income tax.

He devoted the last few years of his life to getting out the message of the income tax hoax, fighting hard for people who had been targeted by the IRS in Court. Further, he was a founding radio host (and highly loved!) on Liberty Works Radio Network. One way to honor his memory would be to support LWRN, since it is devoted to exposing the truth as well. (The network needs your support, and your listening ears to help us improve. You can visit the site at www.lwrn.net.)

I honestly cannot imagine the world without such a stout heart in it anymore. It will take many people to fill those big shoes, if it can ever be done.

I stand corrected. I heard the story 3rd hand.

Thanks for the clarification.

And I feel the same way about his efforts.

I hope others will pick up the torch now.

I agree

Labels are intellectually corrupt ways that immoral people use assert they know you, when they do not really know you at all. Most labels have been fed to their mind and did not originate with them. It’s Better to be a leader, a thinker, and think beyond labels to see individual sovereign humans.

Since tax is a euphemism fore EXTROTED THEFT, its like saying a person who protestes extorted theft is a extorted theft protester. Come on lets be real, its simmply somone who dont like liars and theives not a protest a normal human response.
