Jon Rappoport has worked as a free-lance investigative reporter for over 30 years. 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.

In 1982, the LA Weekly submitted his name for a Pulitzer prize, for his interview with the president of El Salvador University, where the military had taken over the campus.

Jon has hosted, produced, and written radio programs and segments in Los Angeles and Las Vegas (KPFK, KLAV). He has appeared as a guest on over 200 radio and television programs, including ABC's Nightline, Tony Brown's Journal (PBS), and Hard Copy.

In 1994, Jon ran for a seat in the US Congress from the 29th district in Los Angeles.  After six months of campaigning, on a very small budget, he garnered 20 percent of the vote running against an incumbent who had occupied his seat for 20 years.

In 1996, Jon started The Great Boycott, against eight corporate chemical giants: Monsanto, Dow, Du Pont, Bayer, Hoechst, Rhone-Poulenc, Imperial Chemical Industries, and Ciba-Geigy.  The Boycott continues to operate today.

Jon has lectured extensively all over the US on the question: Who runs the world and what can we do about it?

For the last ten years, Jon has operated largely away from the mainstream because, as he puts it, "My research was not friendly to the conventional media."

Over the last 30 years, Jon's independent research has encompassed such areas as: deep politics, conspiracies, alternative health, the potential of the human imagination, mind control, the medical cartel, symbology, and solutions to the takeover of the planet by hidden elites.

A painter, Jon's work has been shown in galleries in Los Angeles and New York. His poetry has been published by The Massachusetts Review.

He is a graduate of Amherst College (BA, Philosophy), and lives with his wife, Dr. Laura Thompson, in San Diego.

The Individual on Trial It was once established that society and civilization existed to liberate the individual, to remove the shackles of the State from him, so he could pursue his own destiny. This victory was massively opposed by combines, monopolies, and cartels, who seek control over populations.

The stage-play of Self and the global mystery Imagination is the source of possibilities which don't yet exist, but could. Imagination makes the as-yet unborn future real. Imagination doesn't feel hemmed in by what already exists. A person, inspired by his own imagination, looks beyond his own present circumstances to inventing a larger future. Imagination doesn't ask for lengthy explanations. It just asks for a vision based on the desire for a great adventure.

Rising up against the Oligarchs does not equal socialism Scratch the surface of any self-proclaimed socialist who happens own a home, and watch what happens when you demand he turn that home over to "the people." He suddenly becomes a raw naked capitalist. But when the pressure is off, he claims every citizen should swear allegiance, so that money and property and services and goods and energy and every necessity and luxury of life can be managed, for the benefit of all.

Trump/NFL political theater: who's winning? Colin Kaepernick's original message, whatever you may think of it, has exploded into pieces all over the landscape. Now people are talking about the flag, the Anthem, patriotism, the veterans, ungrateful millionaire athletes, "unity," the League, the Commissioner, racism in general, and Trump as a slavemaster according to Jesse Jackson.

Trump goes to war with NFL: what happened When people complain these days that they're triggered by the contentious political scene in America, when they seek professional help for their disturbed mental state, in many cases they're simply asking to return to simpler times. "I want the news to lie to me as it's always lied to me, and I want to believe. Let me concoct my old fantasies..."

Is the individual an outmoded idea? History is merely an anthropological catalog of trends, a series of customs. We pass from one epoch to another. What was true and important in one time becomes meaningless later. Just "come together for the great healing." That's all you need to think about now. It'll all work out. And if it doesn't, you won't remember the failure anyway.

How many drug prescriptions do doctors write per year? The destruction of societies by medical drugs goes far beyond what some people call "over-prescribing." This isn't just a tilt in the wrong direction. It isn't simply errors of judgment compounded by the number of doctors dispensing medicines.

Freedom from mind-controlled education True education always contains factors of rebellion against authority -- but this isn't a mindless attack, it's done with logic and evidence and honed thought. It can be done with a decent attitude and respect, so long as the teacher is willing to open the door to deeper and deeper analysis.

Socialism: opiate of the masses The ultra-wealthy elites who use socialism as a weapon, while propagandizing it as our humanitarian future, know full well THEY will run it, and they have no qualms about placing severe limits on the freedom of populations. They want to impose those limits.

To Trump: how to win the war in Afghanistan From hundreds of planes, drop fast food all over Afghanistan. Burgers. Fishsticks. McMuffins. Legs, breasts, wings. It's a good intro. Lightens everybody up a little. They'll love the change. And the numerous chemicals in the food will begin to slow them down. That's a given. Throughout history, no one has ever really won a war in Afghanistan. You'll be the first. You can preen and swagger and congratulate yourself.

Goldman Sachs, the president of the US Super-banks like Goldman Sachs hold the political fate of a president, any president, in their hands. "Play ball with us. Otherwise, we can take down the market." Perhaps the now-departed Steve Bannon, who used to work for Goldman, would have a few interesting points to make.

The Individual vs. Globalism "Global solution" means the individual is cut out of the equation, he doesn't count, he doesn't mean anything in the larger scheme of things, he's just another pawn and cipher to move around on the board. Propagandize the idea that, if the individual concerns himself with anything other than The Group, he is selfish, greedy, inhumane. He is a criminal. More and more, this is how the young are being trained these days.

Tiger Woods' life is on the line: where is his doctor? The 8-10 week study of the drug, which showed the very dangerous effects of Xanax, was ALTERED to include only the first four weeks. Criminal fraud. And that's putting it mildly. It is not only dangerous to start psychiatric drugs, it can also be dangerous to stop them. Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done carefully under experienced clinical supervision."

Tonight's debate: watch the staging The average viewer, having been entrained through years of watching the news, is going to come to tonight's Presidential debate ready for thin context and no depth. That's the subconscious expectation. And if either candidate suddenly punches a hole in that expectation, will the average viewer welcome it, or will he feel shocked and disturbed by the intrusion? Will he resent it?

Civilization ebbs and flows: you remain The status quo is a circular affair. It is presented as "the way things are," but underneath it is the assumption that millions and millions of people are needed to give their consent to it. Needed? Yes. Otherwise, it will collapse. Well, how can the status quo represent the way things are, if they aren't that way unless huge numbers of people support it and uphold it?

Monsanto's Roundup: new deadly scam exposed We are looking at a major crime and major scam here. It boils down to this: the manufacturers who put these adjuvants in their pesticides and herbicides know very well why they are there -- to increase the killing power of the "active ingredient." But this fact is overlooked and ignored. The pretense is, the adjuvants are inert and harmless.

Sunday talk shows: Snowden is a Russian agent The State must keep trying to convince the American people that the portrait of Snowden as a lone patriot is false. If tomorrow, Snowden needed to be painted as a mentally ill Tea-Party gun freak, or a homophobic green dragon with vampire fangs, there would be a gaggle of politicians and think-tank pundits ready to step forward and make the accusations, with great assurance.

Truth about the Seralini rat-tumor-GMO study explodes In his 2012 GMO study, Gilles-Eric Seralini fed rats GMOs, in the form of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready corn, and they developed tumors. Some died. The study was published in the journal, Food and Chemical Toxicology. Eight years prior to Seralini, Monsanto also did a rat-tumor-GMO study and published it in the very same journal. Monsanto's study showed there were no tumor problems in the rats.

Television News, The Stage Play As long as television news gives viewers a small hit of magic, it stays in business. The magic is the stage play, the anchors and reporters are the actors, and the whole show, as it passes into eyes and ears, imparts a dreamlike quality. The absurd contradictions are simply ignored.
