Yes, I know Mike Ruppert has alienated the 9/11 Truth movement for a while. I also know he has seemed extremely exaggerated and melodramatic for the past year or so and constantly seeks funds for his foundering company. But, the guy was a pioneer of 9/11 research. Further, unlike some of our 9/11 Truth heroes such as Alex Jones and Tarpley, he understands the seriousness of peak oil and declining energy supply. Anyway, you all won't have Mike to kick around anymore. He has had no control of FTW since he left for Venezuela. Alas, this great site is closing its doors. Mike is doing his best to at least preserve the research archives. If you respected Mike, do what you can to at least maintain that legacy. Here is what looks to be a parting shot.
[FTW is really screwed up right now. Everybody knows it and I am not going ignore it. I am in bad shape too. I am not going to hide that either. I have been in Caracas for 14-plus weeks and am facing a serious combination of medical symptoms that were described by Carlos Ruiz in “Living with Mike Ruppert in Caracas." They include sudden drops in blood pressure, blood sugar crashes, dizziness, weakness, paresthesis of lips and fingers, small kidney stones, heavy calcification of the urinary tract and prostate, cloudy urine and chronic fatigue. There have been four seizure-like violent tremors.
Here's one from the archives...
The Bush family's involvement in drug-running is an open secret, but Dick Cheney's direct link to a global drug pipeline through a US construction company is less well known.

FROM MEDELLIN TO MOSCOW WITH BROWN & ROOT
Halliburton Corporation's Brown & Root is one of the major components of the Bush-Cheney Drug Empire. The success of Bush Vice-Presidential running mate Richard Cheney at leading Halliburton, Inc. to a five-year, US$3.8 billion "pig-out" on federal contracts and taxpayer-insured loans is only a partial indicator of what may happen, now that the Bush ticket has won the US presidential election.
A closer look at available research, including an August 2, 2000 report by the Center for Public Integrity (CPI) (www.public-i.org), suggests that drug money has played a role in the successes achieved by Halliburton under Cheney's tenure as CEO from 1995 to 2000. This is especially true for Halliburton's most famous subsidiary, heavy construction and oil giant Brown & Root. A deeper look into history reveals that Brown & Root's past - as well as the past of Dick Cheney himself - connects to the international drug trade on more than one occasion and in more than one way.
