Breitbart witness: He dropped like sack of bricks
WND ^ | May 10, 2012 | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 05/11/2012 6:03:22 AM PDT by Smokeyblue

A man who witnessed the collapse of conservative media icon Andrew Breitbart, the founder of BigGovernment.com and other sites, said he collapsed like a “sack of bricks” and died with a “thick white band” around his forehead.

The testimony comes from Christopher Lasseter, 26, who was walking his dog outside the Brentwood Restaurant and saw Breitbart leave the eatery, cross the street and fall to the ground on the opposite side of the street.

On assignment from WND, Los Angeles private investigator Paul Huebl found Lasseter Tuesday evening.

In a video provided to WND and posted on YouTube, Huebl filmed the inside of the Brentwood Restaurant, showing the bar where Breitbart was in conversation with a Los Angeles marketing executive and drank a glass of wine before leaving the restaurant to cross the street.

Standing at the site where Breitbart died, Huebl conducted a videotaped interview with Lasseter.

Lasseter reported he noticed a big thick band of blanched white skin around the top of Breitbart’s forehead, extending around the hairline to the back of Breitbart’s head, that “made me do a doubletake.”

SNIP

In response to Huebl’s question whether Breitbart said anything, Lasseter answered, “No. He was just growling, like a grumble as he passed away.”

He also noted that Breitbart expelled his last breath with a “guttural sound from the bowels of his stomach that didn’t sound good.”

Breitbart, according to Lasseter, was alone when he died.

An unidentified man called “911″ and administered CPR until the police arrived and took over; that is when Lasseter said he left.

Maybe this is a good thread to ask this question:

Does anyone know what has happened to the materials Breitbart said he had that would damage Obama?

That’s what I thought.

But wasn’t it the same “detective” who interviewed him above who said he was “missing”? (That is a real question, I don’t know)

Meanwhile today, an eyewitness who saw Breitbart drop dead outside the Brentwood Restaurant and whose whereabouts were unaccounted for this week has now been found.

Los Angeles private investigator Paul Huebl has located Christopher Lasseter.

“He was just growling, like a grumble as he passed away.”

Does anyone know if this is normal for heart attack victims?

Common heart attack symptoms include:

Pressure, a feeling of fullness or a squeezing pain in the center of your chest that lasts for more than a few minutes

Pain extending beyond your chest to your shoulder, arm, back, or even to your teeth and jaw

Increasing episodes of chest pain

Prolonged pain in the upper abdomen

Shortness of breath

Sweating

Impending sense of doom

Fainting

Nausea and vomiting

This witness who now appears to be missing - stated tht Breitbart was a bright red colour not blue. Blue would be consistent with a heart attack but not red. I think the witness has gone into hiding since the death of the coroner.

Cyanide poisoning ends with red skin and frothy spit.

I don’t think that they would go that amateur though, but the other guy did die from arsenic.

Not surprising, a couple of others involved with the case have died mysteriously.

I believe the witness is describing agonal respiration. I have witnessed this myself and believe that it matches the description (although hard to tell for sure without more detail).

A thick white band across the forehead is typically a sign of extreme fear. The excitation of nerves in the skin interfere with the circulation of the surface capillaries and shut down blood flow, and the skin turns from normal light pink to very white, i.e., died of fright.

Agonal breathing is ineffective breaths that make a growling sound. Normal in death.

I am more interested in the white band.

>>Does anyone know what has happened to the materials Breitbart said he had that would damage Obama?<<

Personal opinion? They passed it off to Beck. Breitbart and Beck were good friends at one point (ACORN take down). Beck said some stupid things and Breitbart (being Da Man) denounced him and said that, “He is dead to me.”
When Breitbart died, Beck was visibly shaken on air. Not the phony tearing up shaken, but you could see that he looked green like he was going to throw up. I’ve never seen that before in him.

Now on Beck’s show, you have an actual vetting of Obama. Maybe the Breitbart people got spooked. Maybe Beck went to them or they figured that Beck has been threatened before and he was next on the list anyway, so they threw it to him.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/do-you-know-anybody-like-obama-becks-latest-expose-could-go-down-in-history/

Beck is in TX (not LA, Washington or NYC) and enough of an egomaniac to think he is untouchable. He is continuing this “vetting” on tonight’s show.

Let me tell you if you have ever seen someone die from a massive heart attack, the fear in their eyes is too much to bear.

No doubt Beck has a big ego, but he also has the sense to hire bodyguards & do what they tell him to do. If Beck is taking over for Breitbart, more power to him!

Good point, or maybe the "marketing executive" who last spoke to Andrew in the bar?

All I can add to this is I know Andrew liked Cabernet wine. My husband bought Andrew a drink on Saturday, February 11, 2012 in the hotel bar where CPAC was held (The Marriott Wardman Park in DC). He requested a "Cab" - cabernet red wine. Andrew hung out with CPAC attendees for a couple of hours in the huge Marriott bar - he was treated like a rock star. :-)

Other than that, I wish the source on this story was an organization other than WND... I rarely trust anything from this source.

_____________________________________________________

That is what what was said about the LFBC. The fact apparently is either a) they do not care if they are sloppy or b) they are sending a message of ‘look we can do anything we want and get away with it - catch us if you can schmucks”.

By “unload” I meant that Beck should “open a big ol’ can of whup@$$” on 0.

We can do our part, flood congress, talkshows, YouTube, twitter, etc with calls, letters, vids, tweets....keep up the pressure.

Inform people....knowledge is power!

We are all Breitbart now..... they cannot silence a multitude forever!

It is not uncommon for someone that is dying to have agonal respiration - it isn’t a sign of foul play. For example, I once saw a woman who had terminal bone cancer, and who was about to die do that. She passed away a few minutes later.
