Andrew Breitbart promised to reveal information .. Shortly before the highly anticipated release, the 43-year-old died of “heart failure.” Then the county coroner who conducted Breitbart’s autopsy was poisoned.

Before that, investigative journalist Gary Webb, who exposed CIA cocaine trafficking, supposedly “committed suicide” with two bullets to the head after publicly expressing his concerns that he would be killed

Wasn’t there something about George HW Bush(daddy), and airport in Mena, AR the CIA and drugs? Kinda “paved” the way for Billy “The Boob” Klinton.

CNN Airs Never Before Seen Michael Hastings Interview: ‘I Wish I’d Had A Few Thousand More Words’

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqo4pu4wN5c

July 7, 2013 - CNN’s Reliable Sources guest host John Avlon aired excerpts of a never-before-seen interview he and his wife conducted of now-deceased journalist Michael Hastings and his wife Elise Jordan last summer, in which Hastings spoke candidly about his career-making piece on General Stanley McChrystal, and the loss of his girlfriend in the Iraq War.

I remember a LOT of “freepers” here angrily declaring Breitbart was a heart attack waiting to happen, didn’t take care of himself, and totally rejecting any possibility of a hit.

Heavily infiltrated, FR is.

“. . .is to say back to the government ‘We declare war on you’. . .” If he wasn’t slated to get slotted before this, that was probably all the “justification” the gov’t needed. With the NDAA, couldn’t the gov’t classify this guy as an enemy of the State or “terrorist”? People the NDAA, DHS and Patriot Act isn’t to keep the citizens safe from al-Qaeda and it never was, it’s for YOU! Wake tfu!

This whole thing reeks. His car didn’t burst into flames because it hit the tree at a high speed. The damage to the car and tree demonstrates that. So what is the explanation for the engine ending up 150ft. down the road at a right angle to the vehicle?

Basically, this guy was murdered. It should help send a chilling effect on the very small percentage of real journalists left doing their jobs. Letting it be known that the gov’t is spying on journalists also helped send a chilling effect not only to journalists but their contacts as well.

When will we learn? If you dare challenge this administration, you had better have a backup plan. You had better have your information in a safe place so if you mysteriously die, your information will be revealed. How many have to die before they start this? We are dealing with Chicago thuggery and they bury their oppositon.

From Wikipedia:

“Authors Alfred W. McCoy and Sterling and Peggy Seagrave claim that Nugan Hand was totally CIA controlled (via Paul Helliwell), seeing it as part of a series of CIA-controlled banks, preceded by Castle Bank & Trust and succeeded by the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI). They further assert that the bank was just small stepping stone for the CIA in laundering capital that started during World War II and continues on.[10][11]”

“The 911trufers haz a new conspiracy.”

Start getting off your lazy rear and investigate the facts. This guys new Mercedes hit a tre and completely blew up!?! And the engine somehow ended up 150 feet behind the car and the car exploded!?!

Not very common, especially in a car known for all its safety features. I’ve been in a head on collision at over 90mph in a Saturn and the engine is what saved me (and it most certainly did not fly out of the car...they are designed to fold and dop down....protecting you from the impact).

Common sense tells us something is not right here. Furthermore, they are sealing all records and said immediately it was an accident.

Wake up.

I have learned that most conspiracy theories have at least a small element of truth to them (some more so than others). Sadly, it appears lately there is more truth than I ever wanted to admit.

What better target than a person with a preexisting heart condition. I believe Breitbart’s dinner with Ayers a few weeks prior was a contributing factor. How, I don’t know.

Also, the car was fully involved in flames. Exceptionally unusual for a diesel, after all, that’s the reason military vehicles are diesel powered. Diesel is a lot less volatile than gasoline. In an ordinary accident there is minimal risk of fire. It takes an explosion or an incendiary round to aerosolize the diesel fuel enough to get a fireball.

Sort of like the ‘Arkacides’ during the Clinton Administration.

Have never believed that Breitbart died of natural causes. Much too convenient and coincidental the way it happened. Have never been a proponent of coincidences.

Impossible. He and his sons (W and Bubba) are kind, good people who bulid Foundations, are Ambassadors for natural disasters, and care deeply about the serfs. And anyway, who needs Saudi money and illegal drug money from an airport built in the middle of Nowhere, AR when you're rich?

Memo to newsies working on 'big stories' that would embarrass the government:

1. Keep a full diary of activities that multiple co-workers have easy access to.
2. Never say "I'm going to reveal something soon" - just do it already.
3. Always assume that the people you're chasing have read the list of rules, and that you're gonna be toast when they catch you.

I don’t remember it that way. But maybe so. The converse of what you said can be true also. Some people just ‘know’ some conspiracy occurred. Same for this new one. I say both cases look suspicious and should be investigated.

Obama’s ‘Dead Pool’

http://www.nachumlist.com/deadpool.htm

Just remember, Obama can assassinate American citizens he believes threaten the United States. Since he is POTUS, anything that threatens him is a threat to the US.

Was breitbart’s dinner with Bill Ayers WEEKS before he died or was it a matter of one or two DAYS???? I think it was the latter.

Glenn Beck was talking on his radio show this morning about the Michael Hastings death.

No skid marks on the roadway, and Glenn Beck mentioned that witnesses saw one or two explosions BEFORE the Mercedes hit the palm tree.

Glenn also mentioned that someone videotaped the whole incident. Glenn asked, “Who’s out in the street at 4:20 AM taking videos?” Bizarre.

A guy I know who plays in a rock band says you can always tell where the CIA is most active on the globe currently by what drugs are most available in US cities (with the implication being that the drugs’ availability indicates the CIA’s presence, not vice versa).

Andrew Breitbart promised to reveal information .. Shortly before the highly anticipated release, the 43-year-old died of “heart failure.”

Anybody who has information that volatile and has not made provisions for its automatic release upon death is a total fool.

IIRC Hastings was investigating Petraeus and the sex scandal.

Republican sex scandals is Hillary’s MO for providing cover for what she is up to, in the case of Petraeus it would be Benghazi.

Car experts have also expressed skepticism about the official narrative.

Well before I read the two paragraphs that begin with that sentence I was thinking that cars rarely blow up in big fireballs even in severe crashes. That's just Hollyweird FX BS.

There were people murdered near Mena and their bodies were placed on a railroad track to make it look like they’d been hit by a train. The state coroner was a Clinton buddy.

The Bushes are some of the biggest frauds we’ve ever elected. And I regret voting for them.....once.
