"I've got videos. The videos are going to come out."
(Excerpt) Read more at youtube.com ...
Don't a lot of 43 year olds die of natural causes?
Please God, let him have put the videos in a safe place!
RIP, Andrew- you did good work.
Dear God, please raise up hundreds of more Breitbarts.
I am very thankful for Andrew’s time on earth and his efforts to make things right in our government and country. This is such a sad morning.
That was my first thought too.
Memo to self: If I've ever got incriminating videos of my enemies, never telegraph that I am going to release them, just release them.
Shocking and SO sad - a great loss for the cause of freedom. I pray he has one or more proteges who care enough to carry on his work, like James O’Keefe or others.
You KNOW he was smart enough to make copies and leave them in the hands of others, because you KNOW he knew he was as targeted man.
Reminds me of Diane Feinstein’s campaign advisor who crossed Omoslem.
He “went missing for 2 weeks,” then was found at home, dead from “natural causes.” No investigation. Died in his 50’s.
Breitbart died at 43? Nobody dies at 43. This was a warning to others, but if I’ve noticed one thing about Breitbart, he was smart enough to make backup plans for if/when he dies.
Full story here (Feinstein’s campaign advisor, probably murdered):
And yet someone like Soros lives into his eighties....... Just saying..
One more Dem skeleton in the closet.
Very suspicious.There are so many untraceable bio toxins which can cause such a heart attack. The timing is just too convenient for the one. I have a hard time ruling out foul play.We do have a fascist in the WH.Believe it.
I hope Andrew had duplicates of the O tapes made , and that they are safely preparing to have them released.I wonder if Andrew knew his life might be tenuous.Reminds me of the Quarles Harris case, a very convenient murder of a witness to hearings on the Dept. State Obama passport files.
Did anyone report this to Homeland Security? /S
Forget about them.
We’ll NEVER see them.
He was a master of building up excitement and attention for the important videos he released. He always came through with what he promised.
I am sure his enemies learned to take him seriously.
My wife studies this stuff in great detail. She is a bestselling author of crime and suspense novels. She has all kinds of books on how to kill people and cover up crimes. She says there are a whole lot of ways to cause (for example) a heart-attack and make it look natural. Not saying that's what happened here. Just sayin.
the good die young
Vince Foster - no one can make me believe the Clintons didn't have him killed.
Breitbart - likewise no one can make me believe that Obama didn't have him killed.
And now I read that I was unaware of others...
Shock and disbelief. An understatement for sure. God must have had plans for him while lucifer has plans with soros. Sad that scum bag and his offspring carry on with their evil intentions. Almost speechless when I saw this morning. The forces of evil have the means and I’m sure the autopsy will reveal nothing. Sad day for American loving conservatives and conservatives around the world due to the loss of this man. RIP Andrew. You will be missed.
“Breitbart was walking near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight Thursday when he collapsed, his father-in-law Orson Bean said.
“Someone saw him fall and called paramedics, who tried to revive him. They rushed him to the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center, Bean said. Breitbart had suffered heart problems a year earlier, but Bean said he could not pinpoint what happened.”
I echo your prayer as we need thousands more like Andrew.
But God called him home, and in our minds way to soon, it is always way to soon for those we love and respect.

Andrew Breitbart RIP
Jane Jamison died last year mysteriously. She was a editor/publisher of UNCOVERAGE.net
I suggest that Conservatives establish a fund to present yearly, The Breitbart Prize for Outstanding Journalism in the spirit of Andrew Breitbart.
I suggest Conservative folks like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and leaders like Sarah Palin take the reins and institute such an award.
Rather than b!tching about the "Lamestream Media" form a committee to establish the award guidelines and principles and every year, judge Conservative Journalists on their work.
If the prize is prestigious and rewarding, good Journalists will vie for it.
What better tribute could we make to Andrew Breitbart than such an event as the presenting of The Breitbart Prize every year?
What better way to encourage decent, honest Journalism's return to our land to replace the corrupt, biased, one-sided crap we get today?
Wow, since are an eyewitness on the scene, we will have to take your word for it.
I lost my fiancée to a sudden heart attack at age 44. My sincere condolences to Mrs. Breitbart for her loss.
I SECOND “THE BREITBART PRIZE”
RIP Mr. Breitbart
First thing I thought of is the umbrella gun used to kill Markov(sp?). It fired a metal ball machined to hold ricin.
Relax everyone. He left copies of the videos with some guy named Davey Jones.
43 year olds die of heartattacks all the time. Sad, but true. The Lord called him home. RIP Mr. Breitbart. You will be sorely missed. You were one of the few conservatives that didn’t back down from the radical leftist bastards that are trying to destroy this country.
There are no great men. Just great challenges which ordinary men,out of necessity, are forced by circumstance to meet. Admiral William Frederick Halsey Jr. (Bull)
Andrew met them well, he will be missed dearly.
People do die at 43... Rarely suddenly, but they do.
People do die at 43... Rarely suddenly, but they do.
There really is no evidence yet of foul play in the case of Breitbart's death. No one was suggesting that Vince Foster was murdered the day after he died. It took time. I would wait to draw an equivalence between the two.
Has anyone checked on Sheriff Joe Arpio this Morning to see if he is coming down for breakfast?
Wasn’t he going to unleash his bombshell expose’ on Obama today?
Has Orly Taitz been answering her phone?
Radio said he had found out last year he had a heart problem.
Remember when Brit Hume's son died at a young age.
Two great ones passing.
That does sound like a fitting tribute, eCSMaster.
I glad to see that you have your tin-hat firmly placed on your head. LOL!
I would check to make sure someone didn’t help him have a heart attack. CIA? Secret Service? Acorn, Mafia/Union group? Its just odd that he says he has something damaging and then drops dead? A dart in the neck, something in his water? The timing is suspect—thats all.
This is the first I've heard that Andrew might have had health problems... I was unaware of that. Thank you, Sudetenland for that information. How I wish Andrew had taken better care of himself, but a I suppose a passionate guy like Breitbart would find it difficult to downshift into the slow lane.
Hartford, CT conservative radio talk show host - Jim Vicevich, WTIC 1080 AM - spoke to Michael Walsh at 11:30 this morning. Walsh is a good friend and colleague of Andrew Bretibart's, and is a columnist at the NY Post and for "The Corner" at National Review. Walsh had difficulty composing himself at first, and asked that our prayers be directed to Andrew's wife Susie and Andrew's four young children.
Walsh said that Andrew did indeed have recent "heart problems" and said that he nagged Andrew (in a friendly way) to take better care of himself. Walsh said to Andrew: "Andrew, you don't want to end up like me - a middle-aged guy in a hospital bed with tubes sticking out of him." (Walsh had had a heart attack fairly recently and had successful surgery at LA's Cedars Sinai Hospital.) Walsh said that "Andrew had been making some changes..." regarding his health problems.
Walsh: "Do you want to see despicable hatred? Go on Twitter right now. The left is celebrating... they are full of glee right now over Andrew's death. Andrew could see right through their fetid, little nasty souls, and - man - is it ever coming out right now. I'm so angry I can barely speak looking at Twitter right now. What vile, despicable, putrid people they really are. Everyone should take a good long look at it this moment."
Jim Vicevich: "It is a really sad day. This man (Andrew) left a great mark - it's up to you, me, Rush, Mark Levin and others to carry on."
Rush Limbaugh led off his show today with comments about Andrew Breitbart. This is the most I could capture from his many comments:
"I've known Breitbart since the 1990s... son-in-law of the actor Orson Bean. Worked for Drudge years ago. Somewhere along the way he had an awakening - he used to be a liberal. He really was an indefatigible bulldog. He really sought to effect change, above everything else... he did on numerous occasions, with ACORN, Anthony Weiner, Shirley Sharrod, just to name a few examples."
"He was walking in his neighborhood around midnight - in Brentwood. Just keeled over on the sidewalk... people talked to him on the phone just two hours prior, said he sounded fine... Most people don't get as much out of life as he did in only 43 years. Breitbart... was constantly on the go, rarely slept, from what I've heard. He was a guest at our wedding in 2010. He presented us with a classic painting of Ronald Reagan. Every birthday of mine for the past three years, he's sent us these great paintings of the American flag."
"I'm very sad that some of the leftists on Twitter and on blog sites (ie Slate.com) are filled with such hatred... really vicious stuff. In the end, though, Breitbart would have loved this."
Rush, regarding this AP article on Breitbart:
"Even in death, the AP today cannot refrain from lying about Breitbart. This AP article damns Andrew Breitbart with faint praise. Breitbart exposed the corruption in the media... he did greater work than Woodword and Bernstein! He should be celebrated by the media for tirelessly seeking out the truth. This AP article shows that we desperately need another thousand Andrew Breitbarts. I hope that the people who work with him can maintain his energy, truthfulness and effectiveness."
"Over the years Andrew said some of the 'fun factor' seemed to be lost, as the intensity of it all seem to pick up. He was profoundly intense, and sometimes got extremely mad, frustrated. ...Let's hope that the people around him who were inspired by him can keep up his work."
My husband and I and some friends spent some time with Andrew in the Washington Marriott Wardman Park hotel bar after the conclusion of CPAC on Saturday, February 11, 2012 (it's a big bar - lots of people were there). He was mobbed by CPAC attendees, treated like a rock star. He calmly posed with anyone who wanted a photo (my pics with him are still in my digital camera). He was really friendly, and loved being among fellow conservatives. My husband bought him a drink - he requested a "Cab" (Cabernet, red wine).
He must have hung out with the post-CPAC crowd for two hours or more. He seemed unusually serene (actually rather quiet, compared to his usual bombastic style when he gives speeches or makes TV or radio appearances). He loved all the attention, particularly from so many young people.
I think he had flown up to NYC that day (2/11/12) to do an appearance on the "Huckabee" show, then flown back to DC for the conclusion of CPAC. He gave a speech at CPAC (link above) the day before on Friday. After Andrew's speech, I heard that he went outside the hotel and heckled the Occupy Wall Street and union protestors who had organized there mostly to protest Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI), who spoke at the CPAC banquet on Friday night.
I am heartsick that we've lost such an important "pit bull" for the conservative side - unfortunately there aren't many of them. Andrew was the biggest Pit Bull of all, larger than life, passionate, fearless and took lots of risks. He didn't just sit behind a radio microphone or a TV camera, he threw himself at his leftist enemies. He got in their faces and enjoyed the fight. Most of all, he loved our country and worked tirelessly - maybe too tirelessly - to help preserve our freedom via his journalism empire.
I don't know if there's anyone out there who can replace Andrew Breitbart's unique talents. I hope for our sake there is.
Rest in peace, Andrew. Prayers for Andrew's wife Susie and four children, for his friends and colleagues everywhere, especially at Breitbart.com, Breitbart.tv, BigHollywood.com, BigGovernment.com, BigJournalism.com and BigPeace.com.
Thanks, nutmeg. Beautiful post. I’m so happy that
you got to spend some personal time with him. It is
beyond tragic .. so heartbreaking. What a fierce,
focused warrior. he will be so missed.
I pray that Conservatives take note of those publicly celebrating the passing of Andrew Breitbart, an American patriot. We can clearly see who the enemies of freedom are and those who would destroy our Constitution and our military. Could one describe them to be as vile as the Taliban or Al Qaeda in their quest to destroy this country? We The People have our answers. From today through November 2012 is our opportunity to say goodbye to Andrew in style by dedicating ourselves to defeating and exposing the agenda of all those in DC and elsewhere who celebrate Andrew’s passing today.
Regarding the commentary among some on the Left regarding Andrew Breitbart’s untimely death: we should all remember never to lose our essential humanity, nor our civility because of what others do or say.
We Soldiers lost our General today.
Andrew Breitbart was one of the bravest men I have ever had the honor to meet. He loved and honored our Soldiers so very much. Today, I am certain Andrew is at the Gates of Heaven and I just know he is embracing the two Warriors we lost today in Afghanistan. I am certain he would tell me to fight for their Brothers! My heart is broken but my spirit is resolute.
In honor of Andrew, and on behalf of our Soldiers he loved, please pick up the phone and fight for our Troops today! In this moment, I am fueled by the spirit of one of the greatest Warriors this world has ever seen, the George Washington of my lifetime. I will fight harder for our troops today than I ever have, because that is what Andrew Breitbart would expect this mother to do! I feel his light on my warpath today. I will fight today more ferociously than I ever have!
You rest now sweet Warrior, we will Soldier on!
My very deep condolences to Andrew's wife and children, and all the friends who loved him so dearly.
