Alexis chats with Pulitzer Prize nominated investigative journalist Jon Rappoport about reclaiming individual power by understanding the dynamics of the reality at play.

Jon Rappoport is a true investigator of consciousness from every conceivable angle.  Whether delving beneath the surface of reality to examine a Matrix-like existence that has been constructed for the masses, or discovering a perennial and evolutionary aspect to human potential, Rappoport has looked into all of it along with all the nooks and crannies that lie in-between.  This is what over 30 years of research and reflection have afforded this writer, explorer, and investigative reporter who in 1982 was nominated by The L.A. Weekly for a Pulitzer Prize.

In this revealing interview with Rappoport we discuss:

  • The foundations of a constructed reality.
  • What’s behind it and how susceptible humans are to its direction.
  • What role human psychology plays in carrying out covert operations.
  • Why there is a resistance to universal truth and a tendency toward tethering to the official narrative.
  • How the collective/group mind play into this equation.
  • Why and how the individual has been lost in the shuffle.
  • What is necessary to live in the Matrix, while not being of its seductive grip.

In this discussion, Rappoport offers a lucid philosophy about what’s behind what could be called “constructed reality,” and proffers anecdotes about those he’s interviewed who divulge explicit details about how reality is created for the masses and the objectives at-hand.

After a lengthy illustration about a Matrix-like construct, ideas are discussed to empower the individual to harness the potential of creative imagination and improvisation as a tool to re-engage individual freedom and construct a reality of our own choosing.

More about our guest:


Jon Rappoport

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

He is the author of three explosive collections, THE MATRIX REVEALEDEXIT FROM THE MATRIX, and POWER OUTSIDE THE MATRIX.

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?

Since 2000, 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.

He maintains a consulting practice for private clients, the purpose of which is the expansion of personal creative power.

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.
