Wasn’t he about to release some embarrassing Obama videos.

I hope it’s a hoax.

If it's true it's mighty Ironic that he was about to drop a huge bomb regarding Obama's college days....

It will certainly make the conspiracies easy to spin up. (Someone REALLY didn't want those videos out, etc.) These days, nothing is above suspicion, and I would put nothing beyond Obama's army of acolytes and lunatics.

Whatever is happening here, it should inspire a resurgence of the fight against cultural Marxism and the progressive agenda.

If anyone has any videos or any evidence at all on prominent politician criminals, bring it forth as soon as possible.

This is stunning news. Andrew Breitbart is irreplaceable. His combination of talents was so unique, he was a gift to conservatives/libertarians.

He was devoted to his family, wanting to spend time with them, and objecting sometimes to his ‘mission’ taking time from his family. Hopefully, they find some comfort in knowing he did, in fact, love what he was doing.

Tragically, it is for real. I just went independently to the breitbart.com website without using the link and the announcement IS THERE. I have already given my prayers for his soul and his family. This is a horrible tragedy for America and the entire conservtive movement.

Prayers up!!!

How awful, this may be as big a blow to the conservative movement (e.g., individual liberty & freedom) as the passing of Lee Atwater.

Thank you Andrew. Let's roll.

It is probably TRUE!

I went to Breitbart’s actual site and this is what I got, a statement from his wife.

43 is awfully young, but my bro in law’s dad died in his 30’s of a heart attack.

Many people have hereditary heart problems that aren’t discovered until it is too late.

—Andrew Breitbart is irreplaceable.—

The only irreplaceable man that ever lived was hung on a cross. In fact, Andrew’s death could actually spark more “good men” to action. e.g. it’s not as if he had those Obama college videos in a secret hole that only he knew about.

What’s natural about dieing at 43?

I hope those videos of Obama he was going to release are in a good safe place.

He was on TV and radio several times last week.

I am NOT believing this for a minute (the ‘natural causes’ part)

43 years old. The first time I saw him at length was the last CPAC speech, I thought he was great, a level of sincerity and honest passion very few have.

The term is not used any more as a cause of death.

Actually, it's a perfectly reasonable term, not for the official cause of death from a coroner, but for a news story in order to distinguish it from some kind of accident or foul play. It's just a general description like "died in a boating accident" or "was killed by a mugger". Those aren't an official COD either. It just means that it was something organic and medical. Like a heart attack or aneurysm or such.

A coronary event at his age absent underlying health issues is extremely rare. Given the powerful people that Breitbart routinely angered, one might be forgiven for being suspicious.
