He has written articles on politics, health, media, culture and art for LA Weekly, Spin Magazine, Stern, Village Voice, Nexus, CBS Healthwatch, and other newspapers and magazines in the US and Europe.

The journey of SmartMan to save the world

The journey of SmartMan to save the world by Jon Rappoport September 13, 2013 SmartMan, who worked for the US Department of Control, often went into deep meditation during the prescribed afternoon periods, utilizing the prescribed DOJ mantras. It was during one of these meditations that he discovered something that shook him to the core.

The short happy trial of an artist

The short happy trial of an artist by Jon Rappoport September 12, 2013 Guilty! the judge said, and it was over. The charge? Maintaining that his work was his own, that he had done it himself, that he had made the choices and invented the words and imagined the whole thing, whatever it was, the novel, the poem, the play.

Would the US government let Jesus cure cancer?

Would the US government let Jesus cure cancer? by Jon Rappoport August 28, 2013 In the 1990s, I watched a federal trial in a Los Angeles courtroom. The defendant was charged with selling medical drugs without a license to practice medicine. The defendant was prepared to argue that a) the substance he was selling was naturally produced in the body and b) it was effective.

Drugs, steel, and MKULTRA: engineering the super-soldier

Drugs, steel, and MKULTRA: engineering the super-soldier by Jon Rappoport August 22, 2013 The reference here is a January 2013 report funded by the Greenwall Foundation titled: “Enhanced Warfighters: Risk, Ethics, and Policy.” The report utilized military consultants, and reflects what the National Security State is promoting as “the wave of the future.”

Snowden, NSA, blackmail, and the boys in the back room

Snowden, NSA, blackmail, and the boys in the back room By Jon Rappoport June 27, 2013 The NSA is spying on everybody. That includes a major, major, prime target: Congress. So imagine this conversation taking place, in a car, on a lonely road outside Washington, late at night. The speakers are Congressman X and a private operative representing a covert unit inside the NSA:

The CDC is lying to you again: flu fiction vs. flu reality

The CDC is lying to you again: flu reality vs. flu fiction by Jon Rappoport June 20, 2013 I now have the official CDC flu-death statistics for the year 2010. They were provided to me by Martin Maloney, who, some years ago, contacted me to show how the CDC was lying all the way along the line about numbers of flu deaths. Many thanks, Martin, for your good work.

Flashback: Watergate, Nazis, Nixon, Rockefeller

Flashback: Watergate, Nazis, Nixon, Rockefeller by Jon Rappoport May 15, 2013 Watergate eventually became the story of two young rookie reporters who exposed and took down a president. Try to think of another major story in your lifetime where the reporters themselves took center stage, and in the process nearly eclipsed their own work. Odd.

How “kill the pigs” became “only the police should have guns”

How “kill the pigs” became “only the police should have guns” by Jon Rappoport March 30, 2013 In the fabled 1960s, the cops were called pigs, and anybody on the political Left who wanted a ticket to the show knew that and mouthed it often.

Miracle: no one shot by strawberry tart shaped like a gun

Miracle: no one shot by strawberry tart shaped like a gun by Jon Rappoport March 4, 2013 Josh Welch. Seven years old. Park Elementary School, Baltimore. Bit off pieces of strawberry tart, trying to make shape of mountain. Tart ended up looking like gun. Josh suspended for two days. No bullet wounds reported.

Why Bob Costas should stick to adoring Mickey Mantle

Why Bob Costas should stick to adoring Mickey Mantle by Jon Rappoport December 11, 2012 Critics of gun ownership like to play with comparisons between crimes prevented and crimes caused by people with guns. But this is specious reasoning. The people with weapons who prevent a crime upon themselves are doing something good. The people who commit a crime using a gun are committing a crime. Those are two different worlds, as anyone with a few working brain cells will recognize.

Bombshell: 18 people died of the flu, not 36,000

Bombshell: 18 people died of the flu, not 36,000 by Jon Rappoport September 8, 2012 Time and time again, as an investigative reporter, I&;ve had the job of informing readers that their most basic assumptions are wrong.

Bigger secret: Holmes’ accomplices or his doctors?

Bigger secret: Holmes’ accomplices or his doctors? By Jon Rappoport July 25, 2012 Even a FOX news affiliate is now asking who helped Holmes in the Batman murders in Aurora. Where did Holmes get the money for all his weapons and gear purchases? Who showed him how to rig his apartment with a sophisticated array of explosives (or did the rigging for him)? Who let Holmes in through the side exit door in the theater?

THE BETRAYAL OF THE EDUCATED CLASS

  THE BETRAYAL OF THE EDUCATED CLASS   by Jon Rappoport April 14, 2012   “That a third of the nation&;s eighth graders can write with proficiency may not sound like much, but it is the best performance by eighth-grade students in any subject tested in the national assessment in the last three years&;”

PART 5, WHAT IS THE MATRIX?

  PART 5, WHAT IS THE MATRIX?   JULY 5, 2011. From one point of view, the Matrix is a central block of energy that is fed by millions of loops and tubes of energy—and those loops are all human actions that follow a script called:   THE HUMAN CONDITION.   “The human condition” is a fake image of the limitations of human life, plus all the implications and melodramas that follow from it.  

PART 4, WHAT IS THE MATRIX?

  PART 4, WHAT IS THE MATRIX?   THE EASY WAY OUT   JULY 5, 2011. Point one: The basic fact to remember about the first Matrix film was that a hero had to be chosen. ONE MAN. A person who would function beyond the rules of the space-time continuum.   Not a group. Not a committee.   Real power would accrue to an individual.   Point two: in real life, the reason the real Matrix endures is that there is an audience for it.   And audience is fascinated by, and glued to, STORY.  

PART 3, WHAT IS THE MATRIX?

PART 3, WHAT IS THE MATRIX? THE YIN YANG EXPERIMENT JULY 4, 2011. Let&;s pretend that a few Chinese sages, long ago, decided to float a trial balloon. They spread the word that opposites could resolve in a state of harmony. Each polarity could reflect the other. It was a poetic thought that might be embedded in a few verses.

PART 2, WHAT IS THE MATRIX?

  PART 2, WHAT IS THE MATRIX?   SUB-STRUCTURE   JULY 3, 2011. Basically, the mechanical structure of the Matrix is derived from the concept that:   Everything is connected to everything.   This notion is increasingly hailed as a positive marvel. For example, in quantum entanglement, pared particles, even at great distances from each other, both react to an impact on either particle.   “Everything/connected” produces a sensation of Weave&All Inclusiveness.  

WHAT IS THE MATRIX?

  WHAT IS THE MATRIX?   JULY 2, 2011. Back to imagination. The fountainhead.   The thing about imagination is that it has no timetable. It isn&;t on a schedule. You can put it on like a coat and move with it at any moment you choose. If you choose.   If you strip away all the layers from any system in the world, you find the original kernel of imagination. All roads lead there.  

THE TECTONIC SHIFT IN EDUCATION

  THE TECTONIC SHIFT IN EDUCATION MAY 3, 2011. As I was about to post this piece, it suddenly occurred to me younger people might not understand my use of the word “drill.” I learned about it, first-hand, when I was 11 years old. In school. In 1949. Our teacher gave us arithmetic drills every day. For instance, we had to work at our desks converting ten fractions into percentages. Then we took home 20 more fractions to convert. Of course, we had no calculators or computers.
