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.
