Re Andrew Breitbart: Forget the sappy tributes--just carry on his work.

This is addressed mostly to members of the media, whether it's Big Media or alternative media. Andrew Breitbart was a member of your profession. He was a brother in arms, so to speak. He announced just 20 days ago that he had tapes that would clarify why Obama is the most divisive, radical president we've ever had, tapes of Obama's college activities and involvement with "the silver ponytails."

Don't waste our time on pointless eulogizing. Just pick up where he left off and find out what was in those tapes. Do your own research into Obama's murky past.

You have the resources and the access. Do your job, not just for Andrew, but for the American people who deserve to know the truth.

Agreed, there is no more fitting tribute than to expose more big dirty fish.

I understand your point and agree completely.

I think the tapes might be a little like Dubya/Dan Rather’s type-font moment —that **freeps or people like them** will have to be the ones that do the investigating.

Journalists are like jihadi dead-enders to their cause —they’ll NEVER do their jobs.

They’re ideologues to the very last.

Darn right. Good post. I would add that we need to summon the inner, fearless, joyful Andrew in ourselves. Every single day. Rest in peace, dear man.

he had the videos of the messiah
he said he would release them

he dropped dead of natural causes at age 43

SURE HE DID

Worth repeating:

he said he would release them

he dropped dead of natural causes at age 43

SURE HE DID

IMO Breitbart deserves a little tribute and I’m glad it’s happening some places.

In other places, the rotten underbelly of the left wing is revealing its maggot-infested hivebrain.

It has been disgusting to witness. Certainly, though, it has solidified my resolve to speak my mind whenever I wish.

On the other hand... I think he had the sense to have them someplace safe.

I think the Big...etc brand will survive.

It will be ironic if his death brings more attention to the material when it’s finally released.

Then we should stop humoring them by posting their articles and linking to their websites. It should be a rule of thumb that, if an article does not contain useful information, there is no point in posting it. Flowery, heartfelt words might make the writer feel better and relieve some sense of obligation to pay tribute, but they do nothing for me.

Will we ever see those tapes? When Breitbart said he had it, he had it. Where are the tapes?

We can do both.

We conservatives are multi-taskers.

They should come out-—unless who ever has access to them is being threatened also and blackmailed to give them up. Who ever controls them has his life in danger.

They would be UGLY film—zero doing so many drugs and getting lousy grades if he ever showed up for classes-—and all his homosexual sex with his ugly Pakistani roommates. Would be a turn off to all except Barney Frank types.

It still baffles me how those “gay” dead men in Mr. Wrights “church” all suddenly died when Zero rose to power (after being relatively unknown) and discovered by Communists. Even the mother of one of the dead gay guys told of her sons connection to Zero. NO COMMENT FROM ZERO.

Breitbart wore that left winged hatred like a badge of honor. He knew he was getting under their skin.

Yes, we can have a viewing of the tapes at the memorial service!

I think that would make him very happy.

One area that I believe Andrew Breitbart encouraged conservatives in the general public to engage in was CITIZEN JOURNALISM using very inexpensive equipment to get stunning and very professional results.

For example;

Many people already have an inexpensive Canon Powershot camera (eg. a cheapy A620 or better) or other small video camera or cell phone with video along with a very inexpensive digital flash audio recorder (eg, Sony ICD-BX112 or better for very good quality digital audio mp3 files) to get very very good quality sound to match up to the sound (not so good quality audio) that is already on the video. One can even install the FREE extended software for Canon Powershot cameras (installed on SD Cards) called CHDK to add many other features to Powershot cameras.

Along with these two very inexpensive simple to use items, most people have a Windows computer with Windows XP or Vista or Windows 7, etc. Available for FREE is also Windows Movie Maker to for video editing that includes audio along with production. (There are many FREE Linux versions of video and audio software that can be used to the same purpose. There are MAC versions of FREE video and audio software that can be used for the same purpose.)

Any conservative citizen can produce stunning and very professional video results with just the simple easy to use items I mentioned above.

How professional ? Very. There are YouTube Videos that show what these very simple and very inexpensive or FREE items can do. The strength of the CITIZEN JOURNALIST is underestimated by the LEFT and can be readily envisioned by videoing and audio recording man-on-the-street and political interviews and video editing and audio editing the results.

These are the tools that I believe Andrew Breitbart encouraged conservative CITIZEN JOURLNALISTS to use.

I’d like to know about his phone interview with Sheriff Joe Arapio just prior to his death last night.

There was an agreement. I don’t think the interview was last night. I reviewed his tweets. He was fighting with some Soros funded characters on twitter..

I see we can’t suggest that people get killed for trying to expose the truth.

Andrew announced he was going to expose video’s of Bambi and now he is gone.......I do not believe in coincidences like that.......

On a search I did, Breitbart had made a statement”Wait til you see the fireworks on March 1st!”. Something was definitely up and it seems a bit of a stretch that Arapio’s press conference was scheduled for today, that there wasn’t a connection. I hope that those left on the Breitbart team have the courage to follow up. The timing of all this is bizarre. Now there is a bomb squad on its way to Rush’s house!! Sheesh!

Thanks for your post. I hope we can get valid info in the coming days. We don’t want a bunch of conspiracy garbage and disinformation, but it’s no wonder there is so much speculation.

I spoke with and followed AB often. Im not a conspiracy nut, but he has Soros henchmen all over him. He was a great guy. If he had a heart attack, so be it. But the Chicago machine may well be in full force.

Google Neal rauhauser. He has been badgering AB for years. He admits he’s funded by Soros on linkedin.

The left is playing full throttle now. Beck won’t go into details but as said in recent weeks the threats and incidents have been happening to himself and family. Do 43 year old men, even those with some heart history, often drop dead walking down a street at midnight?

Considering...the facts as we know them...Yes, 43 yr. old people die. 18 yr old's die. My 49 yr. old sister died.

It happens....

"Do 43 year old men, even those with some heart history, often drop dead walking down a street at midnight?"

Not often I'd say, but my own son, with no prior problems, who's the same age as Mr. Breitbart collapsed unconscious with cardiac arrest at work last year just before his 42nd birthday. Thankfully and luckily, he was with two co-workers who had just been trained in CPR and had a defibrillator nearby. He "died" twice before paramedics got him to a nearby hospital and he ended up getting an ICD.

But I would not be surprised if leftist scum had something to do with Mr. Breitbart's demise. They are that evil.

Nope-—I believe he was killed. The Marxists are evil, evil people and are making their move to take over this nation by the next election The PRESS is key to this election and the Marxists got to get rid of what they don’t control.

Ofcourse, I do know it happens. (sorry to hear about your son btw, glad he is OK) I know of a guy 42 years old, woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and collapsed dead from a heart attack. No history, no weight issues, etc.

Let me phrase it this way what's more likely if you are a 43 year old public enemy number one to the very brazen and on the march left who is in the midst of a communist take over of the only impediment that has ever stood in in the way of their world wide aims while at the same time you are claiming to have a damaging video tape of their leader---heart attack or something else?

Especially if your death could serve as a warning to others not to venture down the same path.

I guess we will never know. But, if any of our other icons meet their makers in the near future --we will have some idea. And, yes, I do think the are that brazen.
