Michael C. Ruppert Suicide Note Released

Yesterday I published a piece about the Sunday, April 13, suicide of radio show host, whistle-blower, activist, author and American hero, Michael C. Ruppert. Today I would like to update the readers with some new information I have just received from Michael’s attorney Wesley Miller.

According to Miller, the reason Michael’s death was confirmed by “Napa County Sheriffs” is because Michael was staying in a trailer on his friend, Jack Martin’s, property in Calistoga, California. It was Jack who found Mike’s body resting in an outdoor meditation spot on the property.

Michael Ruppert left two handwritten notes, one of which was a very personal note to his girlfriend/life partner and is a personal letter that will not be shared, at least not any time in the near future. Miller stresses the letter,

“…contained clear statements confessing his impending suicide.”

The second note was written to Jack Martin, the friend with which Michael was staying at the time of his death and here for you to see…

Provided by Wesley Miller, Michael Ruppert’s attorney

As mentioned, both of these are handwritten notes — although there has been no official handwriting analysis performed, Miller and other friends assure me the writing is undeniably that of Michael.

In addition, Miller told me Michael recently made a will on March 4 of this year. Miller says,

Portions of that may get published, but it will require some redacting of personal contacts and bank account info.”

Miller stresses the importance of everyone knowing and understand,

There is absolutely no ambiguity about it – Mike shot himself.” 

You can read today’s statements from Wesley Miller in his update at this link where you will understand more about Michael’s struggle with living.

As I receive more information, I will share here on Cheri Speak. I encourage you to share this information because there seems to be a media black-out on this story and the minute information that has made press has lacked any details as those I have been providing.

        So, “they” won… Either way. If he killed himself out of complete desperation or was “suicided” as old Mr. Story used to say, before he was not “suicided”…

        Ruthless is being kind.

        I CAN’T BELEIVE HE’S GONE! His warrior spirit encouraged me to open my eyes to what is happening in the world today and how precarious our existence is. The fact that I am just now hearing about his death speaks to the media blackout that surrounds this wonderful man. I am crying so hard I can barely type. His life was not in vain. He was a beacon of light and hope in a very dark time. Rest my friend we will pick up your mantle.

        Isis I am sorry that the regular media didn’t cover this story. I wrote the first piece because I could find nothing. Then the next thing I new, because I had done that and made contact…I had everything. The story is going viral. I am a 20+ yr media veteran so I have been using all the tricks up my sleeve to make and keep it viral as much as possible. If we do not share the REAL facts, Michael’s truth, then we will be doing him, his work and the legacy a HUGE disservice. Thank you. HUGS

    What is wrong with you????? You are publishing a letter that was never meant to be viewed publicly. And now that it has, it makes me sick. This man is not a “hero”. This man is SELFISH and/or MENTALLY ILL. Suicide is the most selfish act anyone can perform – EVER. “I do this for the children?” PUH-LEASE. I’m sick to my stomach. Shame on you – such irresponsibility on your part. What’s next? A video posting of a state sanctioned execution? You did this man no favors and you have not honored someone you admire – you’ve trashed him. Good job.

    • Cheri
      April 16, 2014

      I knew this man. The letter was provided to me by Mike’s attorney specifically to publish because of all the idiots already spreading wrongful conspiracies. If you don’t like it, that is not a problem, you do not need to read my blogs. Mike was a mentor of sorts and you are 100% wrong…I AM doing him a favor. In fact I am doing a public service considering most media has completely ignored the story and the d=few that have merely said he killed himself and was a “conspiracy theorist”. You are entitled to your opinion however, so am I and it is you that is doing no favor and shame on you. BTW, if you knew Mike, you would know what “for the children” meant ;)

      • Mike once told me that if I ever heard that he had committed suicide that I know that it would never happen and that he was suicided. He was sophistically murdered. Don’t believe whatever else you hear.

      • Cheri
        April 16, 2014

      He never seemed mentally ill..but depressed, yes. Him saying “I do this for the children” has to do with his determination of exposing the truth for the benefit of younger generations.

      His death might not be some sophisticated murder by the govt either. I mean M. Ruppert is a human being. If you had lived under that kind of stress for as long as he did..and I’m sure many people abandoned him over time..it would have a psychological affect on you too.

      • Metta Morphose
        April 18, 2014

        Sorry, I should have said “I do it for the child” possibly had to do with his exposing the truth to benefit younger generations. I didn’t know him personally, so I can’t speak on what he meant for sure.

      • Cheri
        April 18, 2014

        No, actually it is more in line with the Lakota and their belief system. Mike was very spiritual that way particularly…it has meaning specifically to ALL OF US…we are the children….

      April 19, 2014

      To “kylyanukofsky:” In your opinion, “…..suicide is the most selfish act anyone can perform.” In my opinion, you are wrong! Totally and without condition, wrong!

      Suicide, the knowing act of taking your own life, is exercising your God-given “free will.” Life, and the freedoms that flow with it, are owned by each of us, indivisible!

      We are free to share our life and our freedoms with others, but ownership remains with each of us. Our life and our freedoms are never “owned” by others, and certainly never owned by any government and/or religion. As an individual, I own my life and I own my freedoms. My rights of ownership include my right to decide when my life, and the contents therein, have reached the limits of my endurance; the limits of my despair; the limits of my expectations; the limits of my ability to love and provide for others! When my limits have been reached and I conclude that I am no longer able and willing to exist on this Earth, it is my RIGHT to end my worldly journey. The taking of my life by me is not a selfish act! Rather it is an act of ownership that I am no longer willing to continue. It is not selfish! It is my life and my decision to end it! It is my right to decide, not the right of another, or others, or government or religion. My suicide may cause grief, anger, disappointment, anguish and a host of other reactions in others. I will have weighed and considered them all ~ but if my final decision is to take my own life at a time of my choosing, it is not SELFISH, it is an implementation of my unconditional ownership of my life ~ and my right to determine its end!

      • Cheri
        April 19, 2014

        I can say unequivocally, that Mike believed he did this for us,”the children”. Once I finish this series on the events it will be clear to everyone. Yes he was anguished for a long time and there were a series/sequence of events that led to those last minutes (which I will detail, painfully, soon) and Mike (in his mind) LITERALLY gave himself in sacrifice “My flesh for the children”..because that was all he felt he had left to give. That is legit.

Rest in peace Michael Ruppert I am sorry to see you go and I wish that you did not give in to fatal pessimism. I certainly understand being pessimistic in this world but there are great and wonderful things happening out there too. We all have to take a break from time to time and embrace the good things in life.

      Uh, yeah, it is selfish and I myself am not going to romanticise it. Its my freedom to my opinion without sounding intentionally demeaning. He made his choice though. His right to do what he felt he had to do for whatever reason. Sad he decided to it.

      • FederalReserve Brown
        April 18, 2014

        are you for real??.. I am a vet who deals with suicide daily,,, it is a horrible sense of despair & loss,,, you call it “selfish” because you clearly do not understand serious depression… your veterans have shit int thier heads that would make any decent person blow thier brains out just to stop the wrongly maimed & killed children to shut the fuck up….. it is relief of the permanent kind.

      • Cheri
        April 18, 2014

        As someone who suffers from Bipolar-1 and suicidal ideation, I will only add/interject that I do not romanticize, encourage nor endorse suicide, but Bernie obviously has no idea the difference between “just being down” or “having a bad day” and what deep depressions and/or suicidal ideation really entails. I hope Bernie, that you learn more before you inadvertently become someones tipping point.

    • Metta Morphose
      April 18, 2014

      When you’re the observer, the friend, the family member..it is a selfish act. When you’re IN IT yourself..you see it as the only option/solution and it doesn’t seem selfish but logical. I’m just speaking out of my own experience

    i am so tired of the theistic notions (most specifically – xtianity) and it’s dictates of the wrongness of our lives. it impedes and wends it’s way through our lives in ways that most of us don’t even realize.

    what do i mean?

    let me back track a moment. Cheri: as a personal friend of Mike’s i can not imagine the difficult obligation you had to give us this final message. Mike was not crazy. most that know little or nothing of him will not get it. they will not get this note and this act. and yes, all of us are still reeling in shock at the loss of our friend.

    but we know what it means. and we know what we must do to carry on. he says over and over in personal notes and this “…for the children…” that is a profound statement, a profound giveaway.

    i ask you, on your behalf, Cheri, to not defend against people like the above, kaylyazukofsky, who can not understand. that does not mean that i sanction suicide. that does not mean that i will commit suicide. Mike clearly felt that such a profound statement was necessary. i only hope that this world wide community of supposedly awake people will heed this call.

    i thank you for taking this profound obligation to report his note to us. it only, one more time, makes it all make more sense to me and proves his love of us all, our Grandmother (Unci Maka – grand mother earth) and the children – the next 7 generations – again.

    Cheri, simply, thank you.

Thank you for getting it. Mike was NOT crazy and he wasn’t saying leave it to the next generation either. so sad.

    Undisputable……1) elements in the CIA possess the means to “suicide” anyone….2) they possess the necessary “psyops” to sway public opinion….3) handwriting “forgering” is a talent far easier than forging a masterpiece oil;…..4) Michael pulled the rug out from some major “expletives” within and without the Company….as we all know going back to ’96……5) although the “note” provides some explanation it moreso appears to contradict the “Spiritual Essence” the man expressed…”a final offering of flesh for the children”…..is over the top….don’t buy it at all…………………///so I remind you all his statement in the “Santa Rosa Occupy: Civil Disobediance”………..regarding the $$$banking/usury system…It MUST be stopped IF WE POSSESS THE CAJONES………………..which obviously the slave status citizens (all of you) DO NOT POSSESS……Michael did some heavy work RIP

      there is a video out there with Mike and a kid in an LA audience. i’ll try to find the link and post. the kid is talking about camps and fema and all sorts of bullshit alex jones crap.

      and Mike simply says: YOU ARE LOOKING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. in fact, Mike laughs.

      let go of all the conspiracy theory. if this was even 10 years ago… i’d agree with most of your speculation. and, look, i’m not gonna lie, for a moment, i thought: “foul play”

      but I KNOW MIKE. i KNOW what he’d been doing the last year + with “his medicine man”. we were at ceremony together last summer. you don’t have to believe me, fine. but this message is EXACTLY in line with his spiritual path. and psyops would NEVER have gotten that right. not a chance.

      and, if you INSIST on going down this conspiracy theory rabbit hole – 2 things will happen. 1. you insult his memory. 2. you waste the AMAZING resource of YOU to pick up the torch that he personally left each and everyone of us to do the work he has for 40 years. i want to guess that that is not how you want to honor him if you had the tiniest inkling of who this man, this warrior scout is/was.

      Philip Marshall’s murder/suicide was very suspicious. I knew of him. He was a tough man. So was Mike. I am not sure either of them committed suicide. Both of these men had a lot to say and they may have scarred a few people! These “people” are very nasty. For them it is easy to fake a suicide. After all, they made half of us believe the story of 9/11!
      BTW Cheri, sorry for your loss.

    Mike Ruppert’s video The Truth and Lies of 9/11 is a greater positive contribution to humanity than most of us will make in our entire lifetime.

    It is neither paranoid nor disrespectful to be suspicious of the facts when a man who willfully spit in the face of the likes of the CIA crime bosses. Whether or not MCR killed himself, his death was tragic, and his life was heroic.

        As a UK 9/11 Truth campaigner, I have read Mike’s ‘Crossing the Rubicon’. I was sorry he stopped concentrating on 9/11; I also remember when he was so targeted that he fled to Venezuela, only to come down with a very bad and strange illness, forcing him to return (I forget if he first went to Canada).
        He definitely had issues with ‘conspiracy theorists’ on 9/11; here I disagree with him. Sure, there were and are crazy ideas out there, but he knew as well as anyone that conspiracies have been around since Adam and Eve (figuratively speaking!).
        The criminal ‘Shadow Government’ of the US runs on conspiracies; the whole shebang is a massive conspiracy, including the Federal Reserve, Bank of International Settlements, UN, WHO, World Bank, NATO, Vatican, Skull & Bones, the works.
        I and everyone I know in the UK 9/11 Truth campaign are deeply saddened by Mike’s death; he was a trailblazer cutting through the blatant lies and inconsistencies of the 9/11 ‘Official Narrative’, and was instrumental in getting the Truth ball rolling (along with Jimmy Walters, Barry Zwicker and others) : that is why there is scant mention in the MSM.
        I read in a comment above that Mike is supposed to have laughed when a ‘kid’ spoke of FEMA camps; that is odd, because FEMA camps are all too real.
        RIP, Mike, you did a great job, from exposing CIA drug trafficking to the 9/11 lie. I am sorry you were driven to this end (if indeed you did commit suicide, as seems probable from your friends’ testimony – I also tried seriously to commit suicide many years ago, so I do know how these things can get on top of you). We mourn an honest and brave man, RIP Mike.

        Paul, suicidal ideation is something I personally deal with on a daily basis. Keep the faith and when you find yourself “there”, breath and take 5-minutes at a time. If you try to think beyond 5-mins it gets too hard….as for “if” Mike really did commit suicide…I, as you and everyone else, wish this were not true, but it really really really is true. I do not know if you caught the podcast last night but you can hear the archive here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/here-be-monsters/2014/04/19/wise-woman-media-41814-michael-c-rupperts-legacy … In the course of the next few days I will be laying out more information in at least two more pieces. Today i will be posting about Rags the dog as I am receiving so many messages asking. I have a new pic of him and Jack together from yesterday….after that (unless anything more is revealed or uncovered) I will be focusing on the wrap up of everything and be telling you exactly what was happening in those last hours and minutes of Mike’s life. I will be telling you exactly how he did it and the aftermath, the authorities, the autopsy, the upcoming cremation and more. I have all of this info. I have had to tell everyone everything in stages so that they can see the process because it is important to the final result of what/how Mike did this. Yes he shot himself in the head with his gun he had bought years ago (even though he’d said he had gotten rid of them). So…I promise, that although none of us like that he did this for our OWN selfish reasons, faiths and the huge loss this is to us, and although there will be a small handful of “conspiracy pronagraphers” that will never be satisfied, I assure you, when I am done…most will “get it” whether they like it or not and most will come to the sad realization that,”yes” it is true. Also…IMHO…not that I endorse or encourage suicide in any way…what Mike did for himself is a hell of a lot better than what some are assuming the “government” did to him.

    It would be interesting to hear whether he was in bad health or depressed in the days before.

      April 17, 2014

      I can tell you he was not in any bad health in the sense you are wondering. There was no hidden disease we didn’t know about or anything like that. The autopsy is complete and of course toxicology won’t be back for weeks or months. As for mental health, Mike had serious issues with suicidal ideation. Not that it’s anything to honk my horn about, but I too suffer. I have written here about it many times and i will be addressing that more thoroughly WRT Mike soon. I can say Mike’s biggest torment in a sense was us…meaning he thought he had taught us all we needed to know, yet we were not doing what he said needed to be done. We were waiting like we had time…Now clearly I am NOT saying it was OUR fault in any way, just responding to you more fully….to Mike the end was literally now, tomorrow and even yesterday.

    Thanks for sharing, for what it’s worth the note seems a balm. I’m a little slow but heard of this man who was an LA cop telling on the CIA for selling dope through the crips a long time ago. (all 2nd hand info. from the pre-internet days.) Street talk became conspiracies theories that became facts of everyday life.
    In the big picture Mike seems to be a hero and pioneer. Just a fantastic job of pissing off the retarded monkeys in the spinning black vortex of doom!

    I just found out about this yesterday. My condolences to the family and friends he left behind. It’s a great loss. Michael was a courageous truth teller in a time when we desperately need more of them. It is sad to hear that he succumbed to depression. I saw Collapse a few months back and from watching this film you can see him struggling with the weight of his knowledge and the depression that finally overtook him. Compassion is what’s needed now, not conspiracy or condemnation. It’s amazing the man lasted this long with the dirt he dug up of the evil machine of empire and the personal demons that he had to fight.to share his research.with anyone who cared enough to listen. RIP Michael. It’s time for the rest of us to pick up the fallen sword and continue the battle.

    Thank you Cheri for elucidating, for me, the mystery of Mike Ruppert’s death. Those of us who have been in despair at some time in our life, know only a little of the suffering of this man. We are all human, with a motley mixture of personality traits, ego and id, good and, maybe sometimes, not so good.
    Mike Ruppert is one of the brave “truthers” I’ve been tuning into for the past two years.
    It’s very sad now to watch and listen to one of his last videos where we can witness the obvious torment he was going through. I observe that his greatest wish was for the majority of U.S. citizens to “wake up” and heed the call.
    I don’t mean to sound smug. Here in Canada, we are also slow to see “truth”.
    It is nice to know, that before his death, he was among true friends who understood something of who he was.
    However, it’s terrible imagining his last tormented thoughts.
    Fortunately, he left “works” that will be among the tools for the “movement” to a better future for your country. And mine.
    My heartfelt sympathy for all who were closest to him.

      April 18, 2014

      Thank you much for such a thoughtful comment Virginia. My regular readers know I have bipolar and myself suffer severely from suicidal ideation. It’s horrible. I never meant to write THIS story as it is now. I merely was writing a goodbye piece to someone I considered a mentor of sorts although Mike barley knew me. But because of the many many commonalities between Mike and I apparently it is me that needs to be writing these stories because in a sense, I can see what the average person cannot in this situation and help make it all make sense. I will tell you as I have others…it is 100% my belief Mike was not “tormented” in those last minutes. When I finish my pieces, I think everyone will totally get it — whether we like it or not, whether we agree or not, but all this other stuff has to come first.

        Thank you Cheri for your kind and thoughtful reply.
        If it’s, at all, any comfort to you, please know that I wish you the very best in your personal struggles. As Socretes said, “An unexamined life is not worth living.”
        I await your further thoughts about Mike with patience, and I hope, a little more understanding.
        I now endeavor to push on for further (understanding).
        I rarely watch mainstream news, (I don’t subscribe to cable t.v.) but was heartened tonight when I happened to see a CBC “special” on the unpatriotic and unlawful surveillance (by gov. departments) of both U.S. and Canadian citizens. That this is now mainstream news is a hopeful sign? It appears Edward Snowden is finally being vindicated publicly, one slow step at a time.
        I can only assume that the now hugely widespread comments by “the people” on the social media (as well as public town meetings) are giving some hope and courage to a wider range of investigative reporters. It’s a very slow process, indeed.
        How terrible it is that many of the brave ones are lost along the way – for one tragic reason or another.
        It’s a bitter irony that, over and over again, we must fight to maintain our rights and freedoms. We were, for a long time apathetic, trusting that our government representatives had our best interests at heart. Oh, the folly! If left without checks and balances, it’s being demonstrated that political aggression, greed, and criminality percolate to the top.
        Take good care,
        Virginia

One of the biggest things that CAN help, is staying true to the truth as Mike would want it to be done and would do it himself, so as much sharing of these posts (here or on social media or both) of info are VERY appreciated. The wider audience we get real facts and details and evidence in front of the less the BS Mike’s friends need to deal with…also…the better for Mike and his reputation…

    Reading this reminds me of this quote by Ezra Pound: “I have always thought that the suicide should bump off at least one swine before taking off for parts unknown.” I have an idea Mike knew this quote, plus I have an idea he had access to plenty of swine and had the balls to take one out. There have been lots of ‘suicide notes’ that were written because of threat to family members, torture, being held at gunpoint, etc. In view of all this I for one don’t believe Mike killed himself.

    • Cheri
      April 19, 2014

      That is merely because you have not seen everything. I HAVE. I am working hand in hand with Mike’s best friends (including the one who found him where Mike lived on his property) and his friend and attorney. I know what’s in the autopsy report, the police report, what was at the scene etc etc etc, i wish I didn’t, but it is true and as sad as it is if you respected this man and/or his work, denying real evidence and what we are trying to share with you (we certainly don’t have to) you are not honoring all that Mike was. Mike did some very specific things so that it would not be a conspiracy circus and when I am done with all I have to impart on this there really isn’t anyone that can debunk the fact Mike killed himself. Mike would be so disgusted that everything he did in advance is falling on deaf ears like that.

    Maybe they threatened his family/friends and made he write the note or maybe they have advanced technology that can write a note in anyone’s handwriting.

        maybe because you don’t have all of the story yet. I can tell you there IS a single piece of evidence you will learn about at the very end…that will make it abundantly clear. You have to understand, Mike didn’t “just” kill himself…he did it in a very special way that mattered very much to him and his faith, a faith mind you (no offense to anyone that follows the faith) that sadly only reinforced the suicidal ideation he had suffered from for almost a documented decade.

    Thanks Michael for teaching me about 9/11 in 2003. You were the key that sparked my interest into learning more about what was being hidden from the larger public.Through your work I became a voracious enthusiast of geopolitics and learned about other wonderful researchers whom I could trust from Peter Dale Scott to Michel Chossudovsky, and more. I cried when we lost Pres. Hugo Chavez last year and then a few weeks later the passing of the brave man who attempted a citizens arrest of George Bush. John Boncore (also known as Splitting The Sky) was a Mohawk activist,an Attica prison survivor and leader, a Gustafson,BC,Canada stand-off leader against our Canadian govt.,a 9/11 researcher and activist,and a sundance leader. I had the opportunity in seeing him speak alongside Cynthia McKinney in Lethbridge , Univ several yrs back. What a performance.Would have loved to see you meet this powerful and captivating orator named leader STS. I really think that it would have been very fruitful for you both, as I witnessed with Cynthia and STS. Your passing has hit me in many ways as the passing of these other two heros of mine. Your spirit will inspire me and countless others and I know that many of us will meet again in the next life.

      • Cheri
        April 21, 2014

        Michael “quit” many times. When he left CA to move to CO nearly 2-years ago, he went there with the documented intention of killing himself, but like with the other times, he got “distracted” from his suicidal ideation (it’s a true legitimate obsession Jacob) when he met and fell in love with Jessy Re..but, the monster that SI is, is always there. There IS still more to the story. I am working on a timeline of Mike’s last day.I am still waiting to hear back from a couple of people, but it IS being written. And, as I have said, there is something else that Mike did immediately before taking his life that is the final piece of evidence to support that no one else did this to him. Everyone needs to be thankful I am doing this and be supportive. NO ONE is doing this. NO ONE is giving you the info because no one did more than do tributes are trash stories. Those that have the authority to do so have chosen to filter all of this through me. There are unique parallels between Mike and I that enable me to truly tell this story like no one else. And honestly, please spend some time researching suicidal ideation. It is KEY in all of this. You MUST understand it in order to understand the rest (including what i have yet to share). In understanding that, if you went back and then watched the many videos of Mike out there, especially those from the last few years, you would view them somewhat differently. And also, please know, this is VERY difficult for me too…

    I would like to share the following in hopes that it provides a bit of solace to someone’s aching heart.

    Ram Dass (Richard Alpert) is a former Harvard professor who has sought out and imbibed teachings from many ancient wisdom traditions. As a spiritual teacher and social activist, he has been sharing this practical wisdom for the last fifty years.

    He wrote this tender letter to the parents of an eleven year-old daughter who was raped and murdered. Although obviously Mike’s situation was different, perhaps it can provide another perspective on the profound sadness, anguish and rage so many of us are feeling.

    Dear Steve and Anita,

    Rachel finished her work on earth, and left the stage in a manner that leaves those of us left behind with a cry of agony in our hearts, as the fragile thread of our faith is dealt with so violently. Is anyone strong enough to stay conscious through such teaching as you are receiving? Probably very few. And even they would only have a whisper of equanimity and peace amidst the screaming trumpets of their rage, grief, horror and desolation.

    I can’t assuage your pain with any words, nor should I. For your pain is Rachel’s legacy to you. Not that she or I would inflict such pain by choice, but there it is. And it must burn its purifying way to completion. For something in you dies when you bear the unbearable, and it is only in that dark night of the soul that you are prepared to see as God sees, and to love as God loves.

    Now is the time to let your grief find expression. No false strength. Now is the time to sit quietly and speak to Rachel, and thank her for being with you these few years, and encourage her to go on with whatever her work is, knowing that you will grow in compassion and wisdom from this experience.

    In my heart, I know that you and she will meet again and again, and recognize the many ways in which you have known each other. And when you meet you will know, in a flash, what now it is not given to you to know: Why this had to be the way it was.

    Our rational minds can never understand what has happened, but our hearts– if we can keep them open to God – will find their own intuitive way. Rachel came through you to do her work on earth, which includes her manner of death. Now her soul is free, and the love that you can share with her is invulnerable to the winds of changing time and space. In that deep love, include me too.

    In love,
    Ram Dass

    how ironic that despite Mike’s insistence in approaching every case in the most professional manner using standard procedures of evidence, we are given information about his unexpected death without any forensic evidence, and expected to believe the version of suicide when his body has barely grown cold. Its unbelievable. I do not wish to offend anyone, but I am sorry, please do not try to take the role of forensic scientists to establish cause of death. That is not proper procedure and Mike would have none of it. Why is the handwriting in capital letters? That arouses immediate suspicion. Where is the hand writing experts’ assessment? Where is the forensic confirmation on whether he could have pulled the trigger? Why did he end his last radio show by saying “see you next week? Where is the assessment of an expert to assess the emotional state through the contents of the note? You people have learnt nothing from 30 years of Mike’s talks. It may indeed have been suicide, but no one should draw that conclusion until it is established forensically beyond any reasonable doubt. Jesus! I think we owe Mike at least that much.

    • Cheri
      April 24, 2014

      Mike’s close friends and attorney are working quietly getting the information. The official report takes up to 8 weeks as per the coroner’s office. There is nothing for you to see until it is available, but I assure you, Mike made sure people wouldn’t think what you are thinking and he did so quite personally.

      You seem to think you know more than the people who he saw every day or talked to every day, the people who loved him dearly, many of which are AWAKE and brilliant minds. If you think that there would be ANY indication of foul play here that these people wouldn’t be all over it, well then that in and of itself is just ridiculous. get a hold of yourself.

      Maybe you need to go back, way back and re-read Mike and re-watch Mike, and not just cherry-pick what you think might help ya out and instead actually pay attention. You are doing the very thing he despised.

        Here is my proposal–
        We start from where we live.
        We take charge of our city or town and we show the world what is possible.

        For instance, here in NYC, about 72% of eligible voters don’t vote in the NYC Mayoral election. And at least 2/3 of of them are progressive.

        5 million New Yorkers are eligible to vote.
        Only 1 million usually vote (20% of eligible voters).
        The mayorship is usually won with less than 800,000 votes.

        We start by creating a Voting Bloc.
        This means that all we have to do is to inspire just 1 million individuals from the 4 million to vote together for the candidates who are best for the People. This Voting Bloc will enable us to win the Mayorship and the City Council.

        Then we will be able to repeal laws that do not serve the People and enact laws that do.

        Then we will be in a better position to finally implement the gazillion wonderful creative solutions we already have without impediment.

        Then from there we can more easily usher in a Whole New Way of Living rooted in True Love and Wisdom.

        i am turning around and mentoring on average about 10 new uninformed/misinformed people every week.
        It is imperative that each and every one of us, without exception, does the same.

    As I said I do not mean to offend anyone. But there are procedures and you cannot put the cart before the horse. There may well be evidence of a suicide, but it needs to be followed professionally, and statements made once the coroner’s report is finalised. One cannot jump the gun and say “well, we know what happened, trust us, we know.” I am sorry but no matter how obvious it may appear to some, making declarations at this stage is tantamount to interfering with an investigation. Every lawyer and investigator in the world knows exactly what I am talking about. This is why I said that it is ironic that standard investigative procedure is not being followed. No statements should have been issued prior to the issue of the coroner’s report. The people close to him may have the best intentions in the world, and I will not doubt that, why should I. But as an attorney I can express the opinion that proper procedures have not been followed.

    • Cheri
      April 25, 2014

      I am in communication with the Captain of the Sheriff’s dept handling the case. I have been in contact with the coroner. I have seen the evidence. The case is over from that sort of stand point. There has already been an autopsy. There is NO cart before the horse. If the media had done your job you would have seen the story everywhere, but they didn’t even contact anyone. I know what’s in the final report, but until I have it to show you, you wont believe it and even then, you still wont. the proper procedures were indeed followed and the prelim coroners report was done, the final one (nothing new on it) takes nearly 2-mo to receive…for those who disbelieve, look on the website itself and btw order one of your own. It’s not a secret.

      The coroner’s report IS finalized. As I have said several times to others who have asked. I cannot give you what the NPC won’t give anyone yet. NOT because it isn’t complete, but because it is their standard protocol. And if you are an attorney, you should have already known that. The prelim report is the same as the final. ANYONE can pay a cheap $10-$30 fee( depending on what you want) and get a copy of the document when it becomes available as both Carolyn Baker and I said in the podcast and as I have repeated here often…again, if you are an attorney you would know that. If you want to investigate, investigate. the floor is wide open. ;)

For those who don’t know about phillip marshall, he was also a man who had information of truth about the attacks on 9/11 and was working on a new project that would have leaked inside government and cia information through a book that was an “bombshell” of unreported minutes and meetings. phillip also committed “suicide”
    I find it very very interesting that these men would commit “suicide”
    After listening to mike ruppert last radio show which happens to be the same day of his death he didn’t sound like a man ready to take his on life.Mike also was working on a project in Washington and in the interview was announcing how he began the two hour project that a major cabble tv company picked up. I just cant understand why would these two men who had so much to say and was both working on some legit secret projects to expose 9/11 and cia commit suicide?
    I mean theres so much to be question, even the crime scene of both of these men were cleaned up so quickly with an determination of death!
    In my opinion Phillip Marshall and Mike Ruppert were “suicided”

      You have obviously done zero “investigation” nor did not know the man. Ruppert killed himself. Period.
