    Michael C. Ruppert: Say My ****ing Name

I have read Michael C. Rupperts excellent and informative book Crossing The Rubicon [PDF] fully twice, regularly using it for reference upto the present. I have also supported – both in review and defence – his 2009 film Collapse [Link] here at this forum [Link], which raised strong discussion.

I can only hope that the film below will give further opportunity for strong discussion on this site, with those that view appreciating its importance, seeing sense to promote it through their Twitter and Facebook accounts : –

    Full Blown Hissy Fit

I’ve tried to like Ruppert, I really have,  but he has more hissy fits and dramatic episodes than a 13 year old girl who’s been denied tickets to a Justin Bieber concert. I worry about the guy sometimes because he seems mentally unstable and if this is how he behaves now then it’s going to get really ugly when things get much worse. Hope he works it out.

     I’d have to agree with

 I’d have to agree with Josey on this. Ruppert’s message has been a good one and some of us listen, but as the time draws near he seems to be getting increasingly over-emotional and I think it detracts from the message. I find the same of Gerald Celente too, great message but increasingly comes across as a nut. If Ruppert is asking the youth (those under 30) to not take to the streets and riot, to control their emotions and rage then he ought to try too.

Josey – do you have any Bieber tickets? I’d love to go. I’m his #1 fan.

    Good message soaked and

Good message soaked and drowned in self -agrandizement, name-dropping, and maudlin hippie values. I was expecting him to also say, "WHO’S YOUR DADDY!!!"

He’s got a chemical imbalance in his brain and probably skips the meds at times; hence the dramatic and over-the-top highs.

I’d still have a beer with him.

I couldn’t have said it better.  It’s sad that such a serious and vital message is diluted by a dousing of megalomania.

    Hhhhhmmmmmm……

Hate to agree with you all.Want so much to embrace his message,……but you’re right,this is embarrassing.The guy has been right so often and yet he’s an embarrassment if this video is anything to go by.
Sad because I like the guy,and I would have a beer with him too.

    He is Human

 If he is right, and his track record is doing ok, why not get emotional? No one really listens to talking heads that don’t show any emotion. He’s just one guy stating his point of view, why would that be embarrissing to anyone? Why do we have to resort to name calling and labeling? We need more people speaking up, taking stands, calling out people, getting attention, and this actually inspired me to do this more.

The message is a great one and 100% correct, but the way he delivered it overall was a bit strange and funny which weakened the powerful message. That’s all we’re saying.

The most important thing he said was about "Growth" and it being the enemy of future generations. We need to live in harmony with nature and not continuously destroy it for the sake of GDP.

It’s not a matter of emotion or passion.  I see nothing wrong with that.  It’s the self aggrandizemt and focus on Michael C. Ruppert, Michael C. Rupert, Michael C. Ruppert.  What’s important, Michael C. Ruppert or the message?  His behavior detracts from the message.  His overwhelming need for personal validation and recognition virtually guarantees that those whom he wants to say his name will NOT say his name due to the embarassment of being associated with this type of behavior.  Also, his glorification of the 60s is overdone.  I lived through the 60s too and saw the 60s too and it was not pretty.  He has a fairly one-sided view of things related to that particular issue that belies reality.  His message is good but his behavior in this video truly suggests psychological issues and will tend to turn off the uninitiated.

    strident

I disagree a bit with the seeming consensus here that Ruppert has a great record of predictions.  He has gotten some right and I generally agree with his issues.  Where we part company is with his seemingly constant hyperventilating that the apocalyse has begun, head for the shelters.  One can take only so much of expecting immediate collapse before getting weary and wary of the message.  I belonged to his site for a while because of his map feature.  I’ve met more people locally because of that map than I have through the CM site.  A member locator feature here would be a terrific addition to the blog.
