Michael was, in large part, responsible for opening my eyes.

It's extremely unfortunate that one cannot know what reality is in this country, until he or she is ready and willing to admit it is corrupt at it's core.

His book "Crossing the Rubicon" was stunning.

Crossing the Rubicon

Yes, for me as well. That book was like a bomb going off.

Effectively I crossed the Rubicon simply by reading the book.

Taking a Shot

One of the personality traits of whistleblowers is that shooting at them just makes them more determined.

Here is a great presentation Mike gave, based on his book.

Great question he asks!!

And naturally the CIA Director completely ignores it while giving the lying impression he's for transparency and justice.

Operations Watchtower and Orwell

Ruppert became aware of CIA involvement in moving
cocaine in S. California back in the late 70's when he was
a local cop there. He operated the site From the Wilderness
until 2006 - it is still up pretty much as he left it.

Operation Watchtower-

Protection of drug smuggling from South America,
Army Special Forces Colonels, an incumbent US Congressman
(Larkin Smith) and a lot of other people dead under suspicious
circumstances. The wife of one participant William
Tyree was thought to be a potential whistleblower -
she was murdered and Tyree framed for it.

Related Operation George Orwell-

"Operation Orwell was tasked with implementing intense “surveillance of politicians, judicial figures, law enforcement agencies at the state level and of religious groups.” The underlying purpose was to provide the “United States government and the Army” with advance warning of the discovery of Watch Tower to enable them to “prepare a defence.”

Some contend that this group's activities extended to assassinations - executed OKC bomber wrote about recruitment into such activities nearly two years before the 1995 OKC bombings in letters to his sister:

"In his Oct. 20 letter, Mr. McVeigh wrote that he and nine other soldiers had been taken to a private intelligence briefing at Fort Bragg, where they were told they could be required to take part in Government-sanctioned assassinations and Government-sponsored drug trafficking.

''Why would Tim, (characteristically non-drinker), super-successful in the Army (Private to Sergeant in 2 yrs.) (Top Gun) (Bronze Star) (accepted into Special Forces), all of a sudden come home, party HARD, and, just like that, announce he was not only 'disillusioned' by SF, but was, in fact, leaving the service?'' Mr. McVeigh asked his sister.

The answer, he wrote, lay in what he learned at Fort Bragg, where he and the nine others were told they might be ordered to help the Central Intelligence Agency ''fly drugs into the U.S. to fund many covert operations'' and to ''work hand-in-hand with civilian police agencies'' as ''government-paid assassins.''

He wrote, ''Do not spread this info, Jennifer, as you could (very honestly, seriously) endanger my life.''

I love that clip. Mike's book

I love that clip. Mike's book is what opened my eyes the rest of the way. It's one helluva long, thorough and great read. I passed it along to two friends and their whole world views also changed.

Nothing ever happens as a

Nothing ever happens as a result of people exposing the criminals. It just drifts away into the ether, and everyone ignores it.

When was this. meeting?

I remember one meeting very similar where that crazy bat Maxine Waters was there.
