New Documentary about Michael Ruppert on 9/11 by Milwaukee Filmaker Chris Smith

Hello Truthseekers & Truthtellers,

I found this in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

New Chris Smith Doc on 9/11 Skeptic
By Duane Dudek of the Journal Sentinel
July 28, 2009

One minute we're singing "Kumbaya" around the flag, and the next we are fighting two wars, we find ourselves in a deep recession and there is a vocal movement of 9/11 skeptics or deniers.

They don't deny that the attack on the World Trade Center occurred, but they dispute the accepted version of events. Some conspiracy theorists even blame US government officials, including Dick Cheney, for the attacks and cite the reasons as oil related and necessary to initiate the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

One of the skeptics is named Michael Ruppert, a former LA detective, who has long maintained that the CIA was involved in drug smuggling. Ruppert is author of "Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil."

According to a publisher's note for that book:

"The attacks of September 11, 2001, were accomplished through an amazing orchestration of logistics and personnel. Crossing the Rubicon discovers and identifies key suspects-finding some of them in the highest echelons of American government-by showing how they acted in concert to guarantee that the attacks produced the desired result. ...In reality, 9/11 and the resulting "war on terror" are parts of a massive authoritarian response to an emerging economic crisis of unprecedented scale.

On the Barnes & Noble website, people who bought Ruppert's book also bought books by Glen Beck AND Barack Obama. Hmmm.

Haven't heard of Ruppert? Milwaukee-based filmmaker Chris Smith has. Smith's new documentary about Ruppert, called "Collapse," will have its world premiere this September at the Toronto International Film Festival. Smith directed the documentary "American Movie."

The Toronto festival promotional materials describe Ruppert as "a radical thinker" and say the film "explores his apocalyptic vision of the future." Ruppert is also author of "A Presidential Energy Policy."

The film is described this way on Ruppert's own website:.

"For three hard and uncomfortable days, author and investigative journalist Michael C. Ruppert sat glued to a single chair in the cold basement of an abandoned industrial building near downtown Los Angeles. During the filming, directed by Chris Smith, Mike told it all: who he is, how he got here, what he knows, and about the hope offered by A Presidential Energy Policy. As for the cast, Mike Ruppert was the cast...all of it. He left nothing in the locker room."

The 9/11 conspiracy movement sweeps a pretty wide swath through the culture.

Celebrity skeptics include Marion Cotillard, the Oscar winning actress who filmed "Public Enemies" in Wisconsin, and Daniel Sunjata, who appears on the cable series "Rescue Me." This season the show - starring Denis Leary - about firefighters in New York City after 9/11 - included several episodes in which Sunjata's womanizing character declares himself a skeptic.

In the clip below - with a bit of rough language - the character explains his views to a French reporter.

Sorry! This was posted earlier

When the student is ready the teacher will come.

I missed the earlier post by Lullaby Academy about 12 posts down. Sorry about the duplication.


...........but Michael Ruppert ROCKS ! ............ Men like him are too few, and an encore is deserved..


IMO, it would be clever to make a video/documentary about the media - how they let us down, why they don't cover real stories, etc. ...AND REALLY MAKE THESE TALKING HEADS LOOK BAD. That would wake them up.

Absolutely!! Good idea!

You don't want to know how many times I thought of exactly the same thing.

I'd start with the BBC. They really made a spectacle out of it.
