Former Newspaper Editor Who Exposed CIA Found Dead

Fact checked

Former editor of largest newspaper in Germany revealed the CIA pays journalists in Germany, France, Britain, Australia and New Zealand to plant fake stories - and the CIA is trying to bring war to Russia

Dr Udo Ulfkotte, the former German newspaper editor whose bestselling book exposed how the CIA controls German media, has been found dead.

Dr Udo Ulfkotte, the former German newspaper editor whose bestselling book exposed how the CIA controls German media, has been found dead. He was 56.

Ulfkotte was an editor at Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of the largest newspapers in Germany, when he published Bought Journalists, the bestselling book that cost him his job and perhaps his life.

German media, who were banned from reporting on his work in recent years, are reporting he died of “heart failure”.

Acknowledging that his life was under threat, Ulfkotte explained that he was in a better position than most journalists to expose the truth because he didn’t have any children who could be threatened.

Speaking to the Russian newspaper Russian Insider, Ulkfotte said: “When I told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Ulfkotte’s newspaper) that I would publish the book, their lawyers sent me a letter threatening with all legal consequences if I would publish any names or secrets – but I don’t mind. You see, I don’t have children to take care of.

His fears for a war in Europe, lead him to his decision to tell the truth about corporate media being controlled by intelligence services on behalf of the financial class.

I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I’ve been educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public,” Ulfkotte told Russia Today. “I was supported by the Central Intelligence Agency, the CIA. Why? Because I am pro-American.

The German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia. This is a point of no return, and I am going to stand up and say… it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia.”

Ulfkotte said most corporate media journalists in the United States and Europe are “so-called non-official cover,” meaning that they work for an intelligence agency. “I think it is especially the case with British journalists, because they have a much closer relationship. It is especially the case with Israeli journalists. Of course with French journalists. … It is the case for Australians, [with] journalists from New Zealand, from Taiwan, well, there is many countries,” he said.

Ulfkotte’s book Bought Journalists became a bestseller in Germany but, in a bizarre twist which Ulfkotte says characterizes the disconnect caused by CIA control of the western media, the book cannot be reported on by the German press.

Ulfkotte said: “No German mainstream journalist is allowed to report about [my] book. Otherwise he or she will be sacked. So we have a bestseller now that no German journalist is allowed to write or talk about.

Among the stories Ulfkotte says he was ordered by the CIA to plant in his newspaper was a fake story that Libyan President Moammar Gaddafi was building poison gas factories in 2011.

The German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia,” he told RT.

This is a point of no return, and I am going to stand up and say … it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do, and have done in the past, because they are bribed to betray the people not only in Germany, all over Europe. … I am very fearful of a new war in Europe, and I don’t like to have this situation again, because war is never coming from itself, there is always people who push for war, and this is not only politicians, it is journalists too. … We have betrayed our readers, just to push for war. … I don’t want this anymore; I’m fed up with this propaganda. We live in a banana republic, and not in a democratic country where we have press freedom.

  1. I think it’s important for Europe that Donald Trump is allowed to take office. He is hell bent on doing battle with the CIA and the Rockefellers a NFL the Soroses who are really running the show – the New World Order. It can only help us get rid of the faceless ones who really run Europe.

  2. He could just as easily been killed by the Russian Federalnaya Sluzhba Bezopasnosti to make his book seem all the more plausible. Or just had a heart attack from all the stress of worrying if there would be retaliation for his book. Generally, CIA would have killed him before the book was published, the publisher would have been blown up, and no copies of the manuscript would have survived. After the fact, there’s no interest in drawing attention. Look at the fact that Assange and Snowden are both still alive.

    • Another one that challenged the “Western elite system” dies.
      Look at the fact that Assange and Snowden are both still alive. Yes and mainly they know if Assange is killed or captured he would just release the switch protocol.

    • Translation: pay no attention to the hideous truth this man exposed and focus on crazy conspiracy theories surrounding his death. Doesn’t matter what caused his heart attack.

    • Assange and Snowden are patently out of reach of the cia, though not the Russians… noted?.. and furthermore with cia control of all the rest of the media, the prognosis for the book making headway was dark totally, BUT THINK ABOUT THIS… THE GERMANS, FRENCH ETC ARE SO IN TUNE WITH BEING AWAKE AND ONLINE THAT THIS OTHERWISE SILENCED BOOK MADE IT BIG !!! The cia is in big trouble and this book’s success clearly shows it so UDO WAS A DYNAMITE TARGET..

  3. A very courageous man that chose to speak truth to power. This hierarchical system will always seek to do away with any leaders of the people who arise. We should all praise this stand that Ulfkotte took and not let his death have the chilling effect those who orchestrate a system of greed for their own earthly gain wish his death to have. This was the act of a very brave humanitarian and in the end very honourable as most wish to be.

  4. These WERE the folks that brought us “WMD’s” in Iraq. Read “A legacy of Ashes” for more insight into their history. Obama made peace with Iran despite a constant push to invade them. It might have been the most important action of his presidency. Now Trump wants to defuse the constant prodding of the Russian bear. Despite all the nonsense he spouts, if he succeeds, it would be his most important legacy. I can’t imagine the insanity of anyone that wants to start a war with a nuclear power.

  5. He acknowledged before that he had a health condition that he believed only gave him a few years to live, and that this was why he wrote his book (which is still not available in English and probably never will be since the establishment doesn’t want people to know about this at all). Here’s an article where he mentioned this:

  6. my my another soul bits the dust for the zionist israeli liers who use the holohoax as their anti semitic shield.when in fact they speak yiddish and a different linquistic form of any real semitic language.fake fake fake !!!

  7. We all know the CIA assassinates people all the time, though in this case, he may have had a heart attack on his own. In another interview that I read, (you’ll have to Google it) Ulfkotte is quoted as saying he needed to come out now with this book “because my three children are grown and I’ve had three heart attacks.” Unless this last bit of info was added to the interview, he obviously had a history of coronary problems.

    • As I describe below, the “non-lethal” Directed Energy Weapons that are being used now can easily cause stroke or heart attack. They can work in various ways. One method involves using oscillating low frequency magnetic fields to raise fluid pressure in blood or CSF (or any saline solution vessel) at a particular location. Autopsy would not show any evidence of a special attack.

  8. Killed by a heart attack gun. Shoots a very small needle containing poison and dissolves in the bloodstream and untraceable. Leaves the victim looking like a massive heart attack on the autopsy table. CIA’s favorite assassination weapon.

    • You mean the Mossad’s favourite assassination weapon. And you being Israeli would know all about your countries skill in assassinations and terrorism, Israel’s been doing it since it’s inception, it was built on terrorism.

      • ASS-U-ME much?

        First of all, I’m an American. Secondly I support Israel like I support the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob and I follow after the teachings from a Jewish Rabbi by the name of Yeshua (Jesus) and the writings from Jewish Disciples hand picked by Yeshua to write His Words.

        Lastly, anyone that wants to scapegoat Jewish people because you think they’re weak for being in a passive religion that you can pick on them with impunity is completely forgetting who’s Boss around here and we’re all gonna answer to Him for everything we’ve said and done. Whether you like it or not.

        Genesis 12:3 “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

        • To not be deluded, ILoveIsrael, you should do a good research and find the truth – the seed of Abraham are the followers of Yeshua, the true followers of Christ, not the fake Jews, those that say they are Jews and are not, the synagogue of Satan, the ones that are behind Zionism and the present state of Israel, Khasars and Bedouins followers of kabbala, the Talmudists, the haters of The Creator and of humanity. Go to Israel and try to preach the Christian Faith, and you shall experience persecution, prison, and prohibition to re-enter your beloved Israel.
          The Jews that follow the Torah reject your present days Israel, as an affront to the Creator. Do your duty, and search the truth; or are you one of the synagogue of Satan doing your poisonous

          destructive action everywhere you may get? Are you a true Cristian? Hmm… I wonder…

          Ude was a man of dignity and courage, and should be an example for all of us, for fighting the haters of the Christian civilization, of truth, of justice, and of The Creator. Get up and oppose and fight the enemies of Christ and of the Christian inheritance, for a better world. Be an example of courage, as this hero, Ude Ulfkotte!
          One last word – better be a ILoveTruth, and so avoid delusions.

          • I am rock, well stated. I recommend the book, “Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil”, by Gerard Menuhin, a Jewish son of a famous musician. It blows the lid off of any preconceptions about Jewry.

  9. He is certainly murdered , probably with poisons in his food and by poison-gas /spray/paintbalgun bullets. The European secret services are under orders of Mossad and CIA. Europe has no sovereignty. It is governed as a colony by the Americans. Be aware that “humanrights” are suspended in the American empire and that when the USA goes to war in secret, even Geneva Convention agreements mean nothing. What you see on TV is just propaganda and hypocrisy. The CIA murders at will. Even people in the USA are murdered this way, like Antonin Scalia the high court judge.

    I am under attack with chemical weapons of the CIA since okt 2009 in Colombia. Even in Belgium where i live , I m atacked since 2014. I have seen countless attackers and know how they work. There is an established big scale murder organization operating in Europe. Every big police station in Belgium, has poison killers of the secret service available, that can be called up on short notice for a hit.

    Be prepared THEY USE POISON. In all forms and composition. And even the police force cooperates and is infiltrated with secret service men and women. You do’nt get a trial.. You are just eliminated. This is Soviet style murder, under the “NOBEL peace price president and crypto Marxist , Barrack Obama. This is New World Order “Justice”. It is in fact the re-uptake of the Soviet Union’s murder on its own population.

    The drugs financed CIA, is an organized crime ring. Together with brethren in crime: Mossad and British and French Intelligence. I hope Trump is strong enough to counter these political thugs that are stealing our freedoms and terrorize us. The USA is a banana republic without justice. It uses it institutions for the good of a very small elite. It’s rulers did away, with the power restrictions of the constitution. Together with the huge arsenal fo nuclear and conventional weapons this is the recipe for a disaster. Brave men like Udekotte wrote about the system the CIA used, to suppress the information systems and the media. I hope that Germans and Americans wake up , for the danger they face when the plans of these power monsters concretize and can declare full domination of a new slave based society and the next “dictatorship of the proletariate”.

    I have some details on my Google+ pages about these poison attacks , it’s philosophy and why poison is used. It is not just “accidents” and guns that are used. What chemical class of poisons; how I survived.

  10. Please pray that Trump has the knowledge, courage, and integrity needed to get the U.S. out of the U.N., bring monetary policy into compliance with the Constitution, and repudiate the unlawfully created debt in order to put America in a position to control its own destiny so America can be make great again. And pray he lives long enough to do these things.

  11. “-In the end,its always Heart failure” -R.A. Hielein
    I can’t wait (NOT) to find out why CBC Won’t be covering this story!

  12. We are at the “tipping point”. Either many who have the inside baseball on this asymmetrical warfare plan come forward, together; or, one at a time will continue to be picked off until the danger passed for these traitors!

  13. One can do a web search, or look at Amazon book listing, for “Targeted Individuals”. These are literally thousands of people being target by CIA/FBI and their NATO counterparts in other countries, mostly with “non-lethal” DEW (directed energy weapons). There are also lethal versions of DEW. However, the “non-lethal” ones can kill as well simply by wearing a person’s health & psyche down with contant attacks. Advanced in battery technology and mininaturization have made it possible to place drone devices for DEW basically anywhere – cars, cell phones, walls (wireless recharging is possible). The signals go through walls like a cell phone call or a radio. There isn’t one way these weapons can hurt a person – there are many, many ways. One can look up the literature on Biomedical effects of Electromagnetic fields to review the biophysics of it (not the weaponized, classified tech). It’s very difficult to defend onself against this type of targeting because the weapons can be placed or delivered anywhere and local authorities like the police will simply declare the victim to be crazy/mentally ill in some way based on their improbable and unexplained pattern of complaints. Laws in this area are also lacking.

    • Spys & plotters have done this throughout human history. But their modern technique is a lot stronger. Mininaturization, embedded ICs, wireless comm, super batteries, etc. make the gap between what spies can do and what regular people can defend against larger today than every before in history.

  14. Rest in peace Udo – what a brave, brave man you are. You will always be remembered. When Trump and Vlad have sorted out these globalist psychopaths we will build monuments / statues to people like you. Thank you for what you have done.

  15. So, ‘who’, and by which Network – here in America – reports on this man; his book and his death. . .Disheartening for the best of our Whistle Blowers. . .and while we know a few prominent; we do not know the ‘who’ of many more; nor the truth of their passings.

However, we recommend ordering your copy today while stocks last.//

  16. They also sell ALL the drugs. Government is the tool used to enslave. Its all lies and a manipulation by a few, if the truth were told an their was an even playing field the elite would be broke in less than a decade. They are a product of their inbred ancestors, in other words they are not very bright so they rule from the shadows under layers and layers of darkness through complete deceit. I call what we live in the Rothschild reality. I wish I was stupid and could just go along throughout life like the rest of you idiots who believe a bunch of DECLARED Satanists are going to save the world. The definition of useful idiot was a Government official who ushered in communism. I would like to extend that term to 90% of humans who believe this crap they put out!

  17. I put a video up some years back on youtube and it kept getting removed and I kept getting banned. Hence the amount of fake identities I use now online.

    I said in the short video after reading back in 2014 that Dr Udo Ulfkotte would be taken out either by heart-attack, suicide or unknown natural causes long before he reaches retirement.

    The other person I said was Robin Cook, then 5 weeks after I read what he did he was dead. He went and exposed the real meanings and workings of al-Qaeda, which is actually the name used by and made up by the CIA for their folder which has all the making underneath of how they created, funded, and used this group of mujahideen. And now as you all should know, ISIS. He died of a heart-attack while out walking. How convenient, and then the propaganda story of how he just dies through exhaustion of walking soon rolled out. Then a good story of how he will be sorely missed by MP’s etc, etc, while someone with-in the same place he believed in took him out to silence him before he let slip any more real truths of what the CIA are doing around the world.

    Heart-attacks are the easiest method to induce and do to someone without anyone ever noticing, hence the amount of heart-attacks involved globally, and only seems to be to people who dare let slip from the true hidden agenda of this New World Order coming faster than I first thought.
    Just enjoy the knowledge you may discover before it is removed from the entire internet you so love today.

    Dr David Kelly, this was taken to the next level as on-going wars are still in progress of what he was privy to and discovered, hence his death and his entire workings and findings are now sealed as an official secrets act for 100 years, the same as George Bush Senior and certain documents relating to 9/11. This tells you the outcome is expected to take a 100 years to reach there One World Government. One more generation to carry forward the world depopulation program after the ones in power right now are doing what they think is not known to the worlds people.

    The hysteria over Donald Trump was a good one to fool the masses and again everyone fell for it. The guy will change the world, he will expose the true people who did 9/11 etc, bla-bla-bla, but all along he has been prepped and primed for the role as he makes an excellent puppet to control.

    The worlds people are definitely being removed for telling truths about the ruling global elite.

    The entire New World Order, who runs it through various proxies and consensus, NGO’s and other means is still in my mind and on paper but I am banned from ever telling it on the internet. Even this comment section will eventually have this post removed.

    I have listened to various Professors, thinkers, think-tanks etc, and some are so bought and black-mailed they tell the world anything for money and have no qualms of doing it to their fellow human beings knowing the death outcome of said countries peoples.

    Everyone thinks its a global elite of bankers doing it but this is only allowed to be said as long as you do not call out the real group and secret society they all belong to in the high ranks of political workings in the west. I leave you to find the one religion doing all this and the one secret society, plus two other ones who recruit through Yale, Harvard, Cambridge and Oxford. The end game is so simple, but the suffering coming soon to the world to get there is so evil and murderous, with sheer intent of death too many, as a sick perk of who these people are, and why they are doing what they are, simply because they are so untouchable and rich. I am against every religion on the planet, but do not hate anyone for their beliefs of their faith, unless it is used to silence or kill me.

    Plenty of websites at present have the truths and it is easy to piece together, but you better learn how to save every sites text you read and cross-reference it, as soon the entire west will be so controlled via the internet it will put China to shame for censuring the truth. Already it has been banned to say anything in the west about one single religion and yet, you can slag off other religions as fake or false and every ism that this one religion can throw at you.

    You are actually having your entire life’s thinking and beliefs reconditioned on mass and even being brain-washed into believing the sick and perverted ways of a certain religion are the right and only way for any society to adopt.

    The internet has these groups in so much hysteria they are deliberately and viciously shutting down and even now removing entire websites they think tells too much truths or sheds light about them.
    I wish I was off my head and a conspiracy nut-case who believed in Aliens and grays and reptiles etc.but alas, like others before me, I am trying to tell the world the real horrors of what the ruling elite are going to do to the worlds people.
    P’s, as readers you still have a chance to search the internet for some truths. People have blogged the truths in the hope people searching can find them as search engines already are deliberately dropping specific websites of facts and truths, before it is too late and only propaganda is allowed. By 2020, you will be censured worse than China.

  18. I just pre-purchased his book, not yet released – and wonder if I’m now on a “hit-list”…?

  19. Wow this story sure did get buried fast . Hopefully the truth will shed light on a True Patriot of real Journalism !

    • You still don’t get it. The truth gets buried by the powers of the CIA whose tentacles reach worldwide. They are the communist Bolsheviks working since 1917 USSR to dominate the world. Read the Communist Manifesto and also read the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

  20. Baxter Dmitry is well known for his spoof articles. I would not be surprised if this also fell into that category.

    • No, I live in Germany, and I can confirm, it’s all true. Ulfkotte paid for his courage with his life.
      The truth of his claims can be seen everyday in all mainstream media. It’s pure propaganda, especially now in times of pandemic. They are not called “Lügenmedien” (media of lies) for nothing.

      • Thanks for your response Anna.
        My comment is rooted in the history of Baxter Dmitry. It is possible he has changed his style but I would be surprised.

  21. Has anyone here actually found and read his book? If so, what names did he mention and call out? Of course they murdered him just like they did to JFK, RFK, MLK, and dozens and dozens of others since the disgusting creation of Israel by a phony horde of Bolsheviks. It was good that he had no wife and children who would have been harmed by his statements and acts of courage. Germany should have called him a hero!

  22. Rest in peace Udo. Every warrior that sacrifice their life for humanity will be in God’s hand and receive the greatest comfort.
