Progressive Press publisher JP Leonard did his BA in Political Science at UCLA and a Masters in Finance at UC Berkeley. After a business career that took him for 18 years to Europe, East and West, he returned to the USA and took over the family business, Tree of Life Publications in Joshua Tree, Calif. It was between two moments which reawakened him to politics: Al-Aqsa Intifada and 9/11. During that period he was a frequent contributor to Media Monitors Network , leading to the publication of The War on Freedom (2002), the first 9/11 truth book in English. A sample of his writing is the update to his epilogue to this work. Since then he has been too busy with other authors' works to publish his own, although he can sometimes keep up blogs on Syria, Iraq and Ukraine this site. In 2012, JP was deeply moved by the destruction of Libya and the attack on Syria, and in that year he commissioned the book Subverting Syria, and produced a video clip about false flag massacres there www.progressivepress.com/news/our-syria-false-flag-clip-hit. In 2013, JP moved with his family to San Diego. 2014 brought a blog on Ukraine. JP has also created a few book covers including Terror on the Tube, Battling Wall Street, and The Iraq Lie.
