Political blogger Andrew Breitbart dead at 43
United Press International ^ | March 1, 2012

Posted on 03/01/2012 8:03:08 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

LOS ANGELES, March 1 (UPI) -- Blogger, TV commentator and author Andrew Breitbart has died of natural causes in Los Angeles, his Web site Big Hollywood announced Thursday. He was 43.

Breitbart contributed columns to The Washington Times, was a frequent guest on Fox News programs and was a former editor for the Drudge Report.

In addition to BigHollywood.com, he ran the Web sites Breitbart.com, BigGovernment.com, BigJournalism.com and BigPeace.com. He also appeared on the TV panel programs "Real Time with Bill Maher" and "Dennis Miller."

"With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart," a statement from Big Hollywood said Thursday.

"Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles," the statement read. "We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior. Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love."

He is survived by his wife Susie Bean and their four children.

I hate to feel all doom and gloom, but the death of Andrew Breitbart makes me feel so sad. We have lost someone who was fighting for the side of liberty and I can’t stand the news today.Our side needs to catch a break.

Why doesn’t someone like Bill Ayers die suddenly of natural causes? Or George Soros? It seems the wicked prosper while the righteous are struck down.

I don’t believe in coincidences. Yes he had something to be revealed in good time. He joins the list with Mr. Young set al.

I meet him last year at coach. What an inspiration. God bless Andrew. You will be missed.

This is truly a shocking and, yes, demoralizing loss for conservatism.

May God comfort his family.

That’s the comment my husband said about the video of when Obama was in college. I hope it still comes out.
I couldn’t be more devastated or heartbroken. He was the only person who gave me true hope that we could overcome the lies we are inundated with from the demonic leftists. He was their biggest threat and undoubtedly a target but I never thought they’d have the nerve to do it. Not saying they did.
Maybe Ayers put something in the meal he cooked for him.

This stinks to high heaven.

A month after announcing that he has embarassing footage of the Kenyan from his college days and the morning when Sheriff Joe is releasing the results of his investigation of the Kenyan’s eligibilty, Breitbart dies at 43 years of age and his lawyer immediately announces that it was natural causes. How would anyone know if it was natural causes without an autopsy?

Sounds like a seen from 24.

God is welcoming him home.
Rest, finally, in peace-you’ll be missed sorely.

He was “Vince Fostered”; of that, I have no doubt.
Since he was ruthlessly dogged, I’m sure he put “the goods” in safe hands. He was too brilliant NOT to have.

An enemy of the state has been dealt with.

Funny how this happened the same day Sheriff Joe is supposed to dump what he has.

In 2012, in the United States, otherwise healthy 43 year old men do not typically die of ‘natural causes’.

Did he have an undiagnosed (or not publicly known) disease?

It's something about allying with Satan, evil, demons... doing evil with Satan's dark protection.

They will eventually be judged by God and pay the price for the evil deeds they have done in this world.

I am secure in my belief that Andrew is in Heaven as his eternal reward for his good and faithful service.

RIP, Andrew. Another will take up your sword and armor.

Because none of us has the murderous heart nor the know-how to do up one of those little poisonous tree-frog darts as are found in Kenya and mysteriously, more recently, on Pennsylvania Avenue.

RIP, Andrew. You will not be forgotten. I'm devastated by this news. A major blow to conservativism. It's very suspicious.

RIP, Mr. Breitbart...

Thank you for being an American Patriot.

Sad, sad news for us.

Let’s hope that the millions of us that he reached can each our OWN little part in restoring the Country and cleaning out the trash.

So shocked and sad to hear about Andrew, first hearing about it as Rush eulogized him when he started his show today. I first saw Andrew on Red Eye and liked him immediately. A good man and all he did and was doing, such a loss.

RIP and condolences to his wife and four children. Never knew that he was Orson Bean’s son-in-law.

A terrible loss for his family, friends and those who admired what Andrew was doing, as did I.

And I’ll bet anyone dimes to donuts that champagne corks are (or will soon be) popping in the offices of Axelrod, 0bama and other ‘Rats that Breitbart kept in a perpetual state of nervousness.

Here’s hoping that all of his material was safeguarded with trustworthy conservative patriots.

I told him that they were going to kill him.

I believe they did. Rush had better get a food taster and stay out of crowds. Roger Ailes and Murdock also best be on the lookout. The administration has openly called them enemies.

When people can not be silenced with the law, or with threats, or IRS “investigations”, the Marxists always resort to murder. There are “accidents”; and “natural causes” to the free press and to judges that don’t follow the party line.

Yeah, I think there is a conspiracy here.

It's very suspicious.

Yes, unfortunately one can't help wondering if foul play was in motion here....though he did apparently have heart problems and an attack would take him down as reported.

However given his high profile stands...ya can't hep but wonder.

Very sad....left four kids...I'm sure their hearts are broken this day.
