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 news heads and the talk show heads and the sports heads and the advertisers and bureaucrats and politicians and public health flacks and celebrities are assuring television viewers, with no shame: We're all in this together. Over and over. Night and day. On every channel.

Ferguson has a long history of making dire predictions about epidemics that never materialize. Swine flu. Bird flu. Mad cow disese. Following his advice has cost the world billions in the past. But today, the cost is trillions of dollars. BTW - Ferguson is wholly owned by the Gates Foundation.

Who's taking a coronovirus hit now? The US, Italy, and many other countries. The US has shut down anything that moves. The US stock market and trading markets all over the world are tanking. Around the world, hundreds of millions of people have been thrown out of work, and untold numbers of small business owners have been driven into bankruptcy.
SHARE Tuesday, March 3, 2020 Viruses: a different perspective
One research-estimate suggests there are 320,000 viruses on Earth that infect mammals. This means: types of viruses. For each type, I suppose you could say there are at least trillions of individual viruses. So we should all be dead. Long gone. But we aren't.
SHARE Friday, February 21, 2020 Nano-technology: one world, one brain
Over the past few decades, the flow of all sorts of ultra-sensitive scientific information, between the US and China, hasn't consisted of rare leaks. It's a flood, out in the open, in labs and universities. All part of the new share-and-care Globalist agenda.
SHARE Tuesday, February 11, 2020 The bio-weapon theory of the China epidemic -- Staging the production
In Canada, a WHO microbiologist, Frank Plummer, wandered off the reservation and told reporters he was puzzled by the fact that fewer and fewer SARS patients "had the coronavirus." This was tantamount to confessing that the whole research effort had been a failure and a sham -- but after a day or so of coverage, the press fell silent.

The press does a limited hangout. That's a term that comes straight out of the intelligence agencies, and it means you expose a piece of a story, not the whole sordid tale, and you move on, assuming that the (blind and trusting) public will be satisfied. And incurious.
SHARE Saturday, January 11, 2020 Exit From The Matrix: Free Individual vs Deep State
The individual is fundamentally at odds with the State. The State wants control. The State wants loyalists, adherents, joiners, conformists. The individual wants freedom, if he has any inkling of his own power.
SHARE Thursday, January 2, 2020 When virtue is the greatest crime
Where is "everything for nothing?" This is their motto. This is proof of their caring and goodness. Threaten to take that away from them and their expressions harden and they begin to spit venom.
(9 comments) SHARE Thursday, December 26, 2019 A deeper understanding of technocracy
Globalists saw technocracy as a system they could use to control the population. Control was their goal. Period. What happened to the individual in the process was of no concern to them. The individual had freedom or he didn't have freedom, and the Globalists overtly intended to wipe out that freedom.

The world may be sinking into deeper levels of know-nothing non-rationality, but that's not a good excuse for trailing along down into the swamp. It should be a wake-up call to go the other way.
(2 comments) SHARE Tuesday, December 3, 2019 Live in the collective and forget who you are
We are now told it's selfish and greedy to promote freedom for the individual. It's old-fashioned. It's passe. It's dangerous. It's nothing more than a ruse floated by the rich to hold down the poor.
SHARE Monday, October 14, 2019 China, the NBA, and the massive face of Globalism
The Chinese people, whether they appear happy or sad, support their government because they're controlled. After generations of being beaten down, the population bows the head and bends the knee to slave masters. Call that freedom if you want to.
SHARE Saturday, October 5, 2019 Exit From The Matrix: Stage-play of Self and 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.

I decided 25 years ago to step away from the news business. "Somebody else" is always running things. Their quirks and agendas are corrosive. They gained their positions through compromise and accept it. And then they set about forgetting it. Now, in the "information age," these mainstream professionals are howling about fake news; they're burying, even deeper, their knowledge that they are the prime fakers.

The Washington Post and other outlets reported that Twitter has locked Senator Mitch McConnell's re-election Twitter account, until he deletes a video showing protesters outside his house shouting threats. (Update: After political pressure from Mitch's campaign and some of his supporters, Twitter has since unlocked the account and restored the tweet.
