The attacks of September 11, , 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.
Crossing the Rubicon is unique not only The attacks of September 11, , were accomplished through an amazing orchestration of logistics and personnel.
The US manufacturing sector has been mostly replaced by speculation on financial data whose underlying economic reality is a dark secret.
Hundreds of billions of dollars in laundered drug money flow through Wall Street each year from opium and coca fields maintained by CIA-sponsored warlords and US-backed covert paramilitary violence.
Oil and natural gas—the fuels that make economic growth possible—are subsidized by American military force and foreign lending. Crossing the Rubicon is more than a story. It is a map of the perilous terrain through which, together and alone, we are all now making our way.

And a special thanks to those who have done both. Let me reply to a recent review by a Mr. Because the warning was a I'd like to extend my thanks to everyone who has reviewed Crossing The Rubicon, and to everyone who has read the book. At no point does Ruppert's use of Vreeland depend on the latter's personal credibility. Indeed, given enough dots, one can connect any kind of picture one wants.
The job of an investigator, like that of a lawyer or an historian, is to configure an accurrate interpretation whose logic is more compelling than the others. This is achieved through a combination of sound evidence gathering and valid argumentation.
Ruppert has produced both in abundance. Feb 19, Doug rated it it was amazing. Page "Section of Patriot II allows the Federal government to supercede all local statutes governing autopsies in terrorism investigations, which means literally that if a person died at the hands of an illegal federal investigation, the autopsy results could be commandeered to show a suicide or some other finding favorable to the government.
This would also apply in cases of accidental death due to fatalities resulting from compulsory mass vaccinations. In such cases, instead of finding Page "Section of Patriot II allows the Federal government to supercede all local statutes governing autopsies in terrorism investigations, which means literally that if a person died at the hands of an illegal federal investigation, the autopsy results could be commandeered to show a suicide or some other finding favorable to the government.
In such cases, instead of finding dangerous vaccines as the cause of death the federal government could instead blame terrorists. That is, of course, unless and until they perceive that they have nothing left to lose. And the Empire has prepared for that too.
Page "Sen. Patrick Leahy asked Ashcroft by what authority he had decided -- on his own and without judicial review -- to nullify the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. He asked for an explanation and some description of the procedural safeguards that Ashcroft would put in place.
He asked Ashcroft to appear before the Judiciary Committee and to respond in writing by November His answer came a little too late. On November 16, Patrick Leahy received an anthrax letter. That it's only 'historical' or far away? Read more here. Mar 07, Szplug rated it it was ok.
Fascinating and furious, but frustrating and faulty and in desperate need of a ruthless editor. Furthermore, his accusations hinge upon a motive that was soundly undercut by the election of President Obama in , and a POT that has already proven to be less severe than was required for his bloated edifice to pass the most important smell test. Ruppert really pulled some staggering theories out of his prolix chaff, but within the next several years—at the latest—I'd not be surprised to find much of his finger-pointing to have been obviated.

And it has some interesting ideas. And the suggestion was thus, the Taliban when they came into power brought an end to the planting of Opium poppies througho Well this is an epic page tome.
And the suggestion was thus, the Taliban when they came into power brought an end to the planting of Opium poppies throughout the country, and Afghanistan is the worlds major supplier of opium. The world wide heroin trade accounts for many many billions of cash. This cash needs to be laundered. And as we now know, a lot of our major big name highstreet banks are heavily involved in the laundering of drugs money.
So this guy suggests that Wall Street as a w hole is utterly dependent on the cash cow that is the drug trade. And when the Taliban threatened to cut it off, something had to be done. One year after the US lead invasion of Afganistan, many Afghan warlords who were major players in the opium trade had been released from the jailcells where the Taliban had put them, and were put to work for the US forces as 'liasons'.
And a mass planting operation took place such that 1 year after the invasion, Afghan opium production hit an all time high. It's certainly the only coherent argument for why we invaded Afghanistan that I've ever heard. Dec 03, Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: everything-you-know-is-wrong. Forget about the grainy captured-from-TV video clips you've squinted at on various web sites.
Michael Ruppert uses concrete evidence --press releases, news stories, interviews, official documents-- to make his case against the perpetrators of the September 11 attacks. He lays the book out in the form of a court case, having sections for motive, means and opportunity. At the end, he ties it all together with his summation, which ties together nicely the information that precedes it. The book is th Forget about the grainy captured-from-TV video clips you've squinted at on various web sites.
The book is thick, at pages plus appendices. And it is dense. I don't think I've read another book that presented so much information. It's not a happy story, by any means. But if you want to understand how Peak Oil is affecting world events, and who was behind the events of September 11, and more importantly why those attacks happened, I highly recommend this book. Mar 13, Timothy Scott rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites. This, along with , was one of those texts that makes you critically think about the world around you.
This was also written years prior to the financial crash, and when reading in retrospect, it's clear that Michael Ruppert had enough information to warn readers of the impending crisis.
