MICHAEL COLLINS PIPER's life. . . in his own words . . .

On May 16, 2006,during the Greg Szymanski show on the Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN), Mike commented.

. . . I have always been interested in politics since I was about seven or eight years old. I actually started out being interested in the history of the Civil War. From there it developed into a growing interest in U.S. political affairs in general.

During the Vietnam War as a child I was very much against the war because I was just instinctively antiwar. And then I eventually saw the effect that the war had on my older brother, who was actually drafted and went to Vietnam.

He is dead today. He survived the Vietnam War, but he never completely recovered from the physical and psychological impact of the war.

In any case, being very, very anti-war, I started studying U.S. foreign policy. By the time I was about 16 years old, I had pretty much come to the conclusion one of the real powder kegs for U.S. foreign policy was the Middle East. And that was precisely I determined because of all-out U.S. support for Israel. And there is no question but that there is all-out U.S. support for Israel.

As a consequence of that, I believe that we were victim of the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Whoever was responsible for 9-11, it was a direct outgrowth of the U.S. involvement in the Middle East, number one, involvement on behalf of Israel.

And number two, of couse, we have found ourselves embroiled in this war in Iraq. And now if the Zionists and their controlled politicians like George W. Bush had their way, we will get into a war against Iran.

So, needless to say, as I have always said I say it on my program all the time I say it any time I am interviewed anywhere. The one thing which is consistent about U.S. Middle East policy is the fact that it is based on lies, bullying and double standards.

As a consequence of my interest in the Middle East, I obviously did a lot of reading on the topic. I discovered back in the mid to late 1980's that there was one aspect of U.S. Middle East policy that was hardly explored at all in most published material on the subject. That was the fact that John F. Kennedy was engaged in a secret behind the scenes war with Israel, over Israel's drive to build nuclear weapons of mass destruction.

As we all know, nuclear weapons of mass destruction were at the center of the war against Iraq and certainly at the center of the intended war by the Zionist and their bought and paid for politicians in America. That is the subject of their drive for war against Iran.

So as I began to explore I was always interested in the Kennedy assassination, being interesting in politics I began to see that all the published works on the Kennedy assassination, there was never anything mentioned about JFK's war with Israel.

And what is even more interesting, I think and I am sure the listeners of RBN (Republic Broadcasting Network) will appreciate it in all the mass media in America, John F. Kennedy was always portrayed as a strong and dear friend of Israel. They tell the old myth that John F. Kennedy was the first President to really become a friend of Israel. They talk about how John F. Kennedy sent Israel weapons.

What they do not mention, of course, is the fact that the reason why JFK sent Israel conventional weapons was because Israel was black-mailing and saying, "If you do not send us conventional weapons we are going to build nuclear weapons." But of course they intended to do it anyway.

The biographical summary from Final Judgment, Sixth Edition (2005) below picks up where the Szymanski interview left off:


There's no doubt about it — Michael Collins Piper, the author of Final Judgment, is one of the Israeli lobby's primary targets today. Repeatedly and bitterly attacked by propagandists for Israel, Piper is undaunted, despite the fact his life was publicly threatened by Irv Rubin, violent leader of the terrorist Jewish Defense League. Once, after discovering an illicit wiretap on his home telephone, Piper noted wryly, 'The Vatican didn't put it there."

In the style of his combative, colorful great-great-grandfather, famed bridge builder "Colonel" John Piper — surrogate father and early business partner of industrial giant Andrew Carnegie — the outspoken author relishes any opportunity to confront his many critics head-on, although generally they refuse to debate him. Like his ancestor, Michael Collins Piper is also a bridge builder in his own way ...

In recent years, he has lectured across the globe in places as diverse as Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates; Moscow, Russia; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Tokyo, Japan and across Canada. Police-state-minded advocates of war and imperialism have been disturbed at Piper's energetic efforts to forge links of common understanding among peoples of all creeds and colors. Once described as "'The American Voltaire" — recalling the Enlightenment crusader against bigotry and tyranny — Michael Collins Piper is truly the author the Israeli lobby loves to hate ...

Widely known as a lover of dogs, cats and all animals and an unapologetic old-style American progressive in the LaFollette-Wheeler tradition, Piper considers the labels of "liberal" and "conservative" archaic, artificial and divisive, manipulative media buzzwords designed to suppress popular dissent and free inquiry. Once offered a lucrative assignment in a covert intelligence operation in Africa, Piper turned it down, preferring his independence — a position in keeping with his ethnic heritage: another of Piper's great-great-grandfathers was a full-blooded American Indian.

Twenty years before the major media discovered the "neo-conservative" cabal that pushed America into the Iraq war, Piper was reporting on their intrigues. In 2004, in The High Priests of War, he assembled a fascinating overview of their insidious record, the first book ever published on the subject. In his provocative 2005 work, The New Jerusalem, Piper confronted the controversial issue of Zionist power in America, a detailed exposition unlike any ever assembled by any modern author. Piper's authoritative lecture to the Zayed Centre, the Arab League think tank, on the topic of American media bias, has been distributed worldwide.

Sourcing much of his work from his own massive library of some 10,000 volumes, Piper writes for American Free Press, the Washington-based national weekly, and in the historical journal, The Barnes Review. One media critic hailed Piper as one of the top 25 best writers on the Internet today.

Throughout his career, Piper led the way on several major stories. In 1987, he was the first to expose the Justice Department frame-up of Pennsylvania State Treasurer Budd Dwyer that led to Dwyer's shocking public suicide. Piper was also the first to expose San Francisco-based Roy Bullock as an operative for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a conduit for Israel's Mossad, involved in illegal spying on American citizens, seven years before The New York Times acknowledged Bullock's ADL link. The ADL will never forgive Piper for his pivotal front-line role in unmasking Bullock.

Piper was the only journalist to assert — based on hard evidence — that the Oklahoma bombing was a Mossad "false flag" operation designed to implicate Saddam Hussein — a scheme derailed by U.S. investigators who rejected Israel's machinations, opting for a "lone nut" cover-up. Today, Piper's pioneering work on Israeli links to the 9-11 tragedy is echoed by truth seekers and, predictably, damned by defenders of Israel for its accuracy.

A few summary comments about the works of Michael Collins Piper

Michael Piper clearly demonstrated tremendous personal and moral courage by going after the hardest stories in America.

He relentlessly exposed forces of corruption and treason that threaten to utterly destroy this country from within. He honestly exposed terrible truths even when such truths are distasteful to the general public.

One proof of the excellence, depth, and honesty of his investigative journalism are the articles archived at this web site.

This man clearly deserves your attention.





Michael Collins Piper's former employer, The American Free Press, reported his passing in a June 6, 2015 article "In Memorium: Michael Collins Piper 1960-2015" as follows:


It is with a heavy heart that we report on May 30 renowned author, correspondent, world traveler and friend Michael Collins Piper passed away, the victim of an apparent heart attack. For the past few months, Mike had been living in Idaho following recent serious health issues he had been suffering.

While details remain sketchy at the moment, we have been told that the coroner has ruled that Mike’s death was due to natural causes and that there was no foul play involved. His family is planning a small funeral service, but it is our understanding that supporters are planning an event to honor his legacy. We will report those details in an upcoming issue when finalized.

Mike was instrumental in founding AMERICAN FREE PRESS in August 2001, dedicating his life to, among other things, writing books and articles that exposed the machinations of powerful Zionist forces, like The HIGH PRIESTS of WAR, The NEW JERUSALEM: Zionist Power in America, The NEW BABYLON: Those Who Reign Supreme, The JUDAS GOATS: The Enemy Within, and SHARE the WEALTH: Huey Long vs. Wall Street.

(These books are all we have remaining and are limited in quantity and will not be replenished as of now.)

In the waning days of LIBERTY LOBBY, Mike’s wonderful sense of humor kept everyone’s spirits high, even in the midst of those black days. He was also a writer of short comic skits that lampooned top political figures and ridiculed the mainstream line on historical events.

He never backed away from facing off with those he saw as liars and shills, no matter how powerful they were, even confronting Henry Kissinger as he came out of the Library of Congress across from the old Liberty Building on Capitol Hill.

The loss of Mike is truly a tragedy for the patriot movement. He will be missed by his friends on the AFP staff as well as his many loyal supporters.

Michael’s family has requested that instead of sending flowers, please send donations to the Juniata County Library, 498 Jefferson Street, Mifflintown, PA 17059, where Michael always went.

Rest in peace, Mike.

Paul Angel, managing editor of The Barnes Review (TBR) and a close work associate of Mike Piper, had nothing but good words to say about both Michael Collins Piper and his books in his Memorial Interview with Dave Gahery on "History Today," 8 June 2015,"

Paul Angel: [2:58 in]. ...It was my honor, really, to know Mike for twenty years, twenty one, twenty two years. He was a mentor, even though he was my own age. He was a good friend. He was a collaborator on projects in which he and I would work to figure out ways to raise money, expand the outreach of American Free Press, and before that the SPOTLIGHT, because I met him, it was within the old SPOTLIGHT offices down on Capitol Hill. I would say that for 12 or 13 years he and I worked five days a week together. Sometimes on Saturday and Sunday he would call me with a brilliant idea, of which he had many. So we lost really a towering intellect. A mind that was always, the cogs were always working on angles to things. I can't tell you the number of times where I would come to him and say "Well Mike, here is what I think happened." He would say "My boy," he would always say that, as if he were my father, but he would say "You have got that all wrong." He would explain it and it would make so much sense the way he thought things through. He had a vast knowledge of history. He had a vast knowledge of news, pressure groups, how things fit together, who was driving what, on all kinds of subjects. He was interested in just about everything, and I must say he had one of the most impressive memories of any human being I have ever come across. And I know you had a chance to work with him as well, Dave, and do some interviews. He was not only an author and a commentator, and a fund-raiser, a promoter, but he was also a great radio show host and made for wonderful interviews in which he could talk at length on dozens and dozens of topics. He will be missed.
Dave Gahary: [In a hushed voice] Oh yes.


Truth Jihad: Tribute to Michael Collins Piper, (subtitle: "He received plenty of insults, but few refutations") by Kevin Barrett, June 3, 2015, at Dr. Barrett commented:

Michael Collins Piper was ahead of his time. Mike, who passed away this weekend, developed insights into Zionist power and the New World Order that I’m still working to assimilate.

I started following his work when we both worked for Republic Broadcasting Network starting in 2006. I had heard of him long before that, having followed JFK assassination research since I became aware of that issue in 1975. I vaguely knew of his thesis that David Ben Gurion and the Mossad were behind the tragedy in Dealey Plaza. But most folks in the JFK community dismissed that as “anti-Semitism”– a term that still cowed me in those days – and there was so much evidence implicating Johnson and the CIA that throwing in the Mossad seemed superfluous.

But once I started actually reading Mike’s work, I realized he was on to something.

I believe Michael Collins Piper will be most remembered for his book Final Judgment: The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy. It makes a damning circumstantial case that Ben Gurion, working through Mossad’s CIA assets such as James Angleton as well as the Khazarian mafia, was a prime player on November 22nd, 1963. Today, more and more people agree. Laurent Guyénot, among others, has followed the trail blazed by Michael Collins Piper.

This interview was originally recorded on November 26th, 2013.  Here is the show listing from my radio schedule blog:

Commentary Magazine writer Michael Rubin is horrified that Press TV published my recent article exploring possible Israeli complicity in the JFK assassination. He misleadingly blames “the Rouhani regime” for publishing my article, which is sort of like blaming “the Obama regime” for something aired on PBS, CNN, Fox, or C-Span, or published in the New York Times or Washington Post. (Actually, Press TV has a lot more freedom, at least in its international coverage, than any major American media outlet.)

Rubin says my article is “noxious hate” – but tellingly fails to explain why it is wrong, or where the reader might go to find a refutation of Michael Collins Piper’s thesis that Israel was a major player in the JFK assassination. (Read my response to Rubin.)

Now Michael Collins Piper himself joins me to discuss the thesis and its critics…and to wonder why he get so many insults, yet so few attempts to explain why he is wrong.

In memoriam Michael Collins Piper; the fact of life after death by John de Nugent, June 3, 2015. De Nugent wrote: "...A GREAT WRITER FOR OUR CAUSE. I and Mike were friends for 25 years, and he was a true, sincere, friend, very human, warm and caring. His bluff, Irish-American manner, cigars and whiskey, and his deep love of truth . . . and his great book `Final Judgment' on Israel and the Kennedy assassination, all made him immortal..."

Michael Collins Piper was an excellent author and a very entertaining presence in his radio appearances and he will be deeply missed. MCP has left behind a wonderful legacy of written and oral material with the most prominent work being the brilliant book on the assassination of John F. Kennedy Final Judgement..."

Michael Collins Piper, 1960-2014, Tuesday, June 02, 2015, at, web site of Michael Hoffman. A reader commented: " Michael Collins Piper's courage and sacrifice for his country cannot be denied. He deserved better than to die alone in a hotel room, not receiving needed medical care. Nevertheless, it speaks more of his integrity than any words can express that he remained steadfast in his work even through such desperate circumstances..."

The YouTube video "Dr. David Duke and Reverend Mark Dankof eulogize Michael Collins Piper," posted June 10, 2015, addresses Piper's impact on American nationalists:


Dr. David Duke: [:10 in] Pastor Dankof and I were very good friends of a wonderful intellect, a great person, a self-sacrificing person, Mike Piper. I have known Mike many, many decades. I go way back with Mike Piper. I remember very clearly when we were at a conference in Moscow a few years ago, an international conference against Zionism, in favor of the preservation of the Russian people, in fact the European people with the threat of Zionist takeover, and we spent about two or three days of intense talks and taking part in this conference and we really became very good friends then. I just thought the world of Mike. He did of course some great books. He did the book that really challenges the --it is the best book on the Kennedy assassination if you have not read the book yet. Fantastic book on the Kennedy assassination. He has done so many things, many, many articles. He had a radio program for a number of years. He was just a good fast, always loyal, kind friend of mine. I just hate to say that he has passed on. It looks like it was from natural causes. Maybe Pastor Dankof can give more information because he has been in contact with another mutual friend in Idaho where Mike was. He has passed on, and we just have to give him a salute here on this program, and we wish him the very best, and we hope that he has everything in the next life that maybe he did not have here with his life of toil and trouble. Pastor Dankof, welcome to this show.
Rev. Mark Dankof: Good to be on, and I just wanted to second your remarks about Michael Collins Piper. I had known him for a number of years, not as long as you, Dr. Duke, but I had known Mike for approximately fourteen, fifteen years, something like this. He was a terrific friend. He was loyal, he was articulate, he was principled, and certainly his book on the Kennedy assassination, entitled Final Judgment, changed the course of my life in that it really facilitated in my own thinking the further demythologization, as it were, of American history and the spin on events and historical occurrences that we get in mainstream media that is so many times not only incorrect, but has been deliberately woven and spun in a false way to deceive people. Michael Collins Piper, like you, was one of the people that really cut through all of that stuff and gave people an opportunity to reexamine many of their pre-suppositions. If they were fair-minded at all and read his materials, and listened to his radio shows, and attended some of these conferences with him, in many cases they found it to be a life-changing experience in terms of how it altered their respective world views. ..[3:22]
