In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)
Breibart.com ^ | 3/1/12 | Larry Solov

Posted on 03/01/2012 6:00:33 AM PST by ImJustAnotherOkie

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

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.

Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

I understand. One of my first thoughts was “why couldn’t it have been George Soros!”.

God forgive me.

Any chance of him being taken out by unnatural causes?
I would say yes, since he recently announced he had some college-era videos of Obama.


I know that this is not the time for politics but would this scare anyone he trusted into not releasing these photos? On the thread about the photos, half the posters wondered about breitbart’s safety.

She is easy on the eyes as well, she might be a great torch bearer.

1) I’ll never be convinced he wasn’t murdered.

2) Now we know why the GOP cowards won’t stand up against obama. They’re not willing to die for this country.

3) I sure hope he shared his information with some others who will put it out there. In this day and age it’s almost impossible to destroy all evidence.

4) Sherrif Joe, watch your back and don’t trust any of your deputies.

Greg Gutfeld said on Fox this morning that he had been warning Andrew about his health and that he should take better care of himself...

Just sounds waaaayyyyy too convenient for the Left. I'll bet they're having a party over at DU (and there's no way I'm gonna check).

I feel so like you. I had a much needed day off today and I am sitting here relaxing, planning what to cook for dinner, since I have been working so much and have neglected the family a little bit.

Then this. I truly feel sick. But now I am going to go get dressed and get off the computer and turn off the TV and figure out exactly what I am going to do to honor Andrew.

I will still cook dinner but I feel so much political energy right now and I will honor Andrew and continue the fight to the truth.

I believe this is the real story. Hannity was a very close friend of Breitbart and said on Fox that he knew Andrew had heart problems a year ago.

Very high energy people who can not sleep beyond five hours a night = hormonal changes, high blood pressure, appetite disturbance etc. It could have been anything, really. RIP

So the thought strikes me that Sheriff Arpaio in AZ is supposed to have a news conference today at 1pm Mountain Time about Barry’s eligibility and there may be ‘shock’ in the report...

Coincidence?

My husband and I saw Andrew on vacation last August. We ran into him on the plane and my man just happened to be reading Andrew’s book on his ipad. It was a cool moment when my man stopped Andrew to tell him how he was enjoying his book and that we were both big fans. Andrew was very cool. Andrew joked about signing the ipad. A man full of life and a life well lived. God bless his soul and God bless his family. He was truly a warrior. I am so glad to have met him.

The report of a death by natural causes will produce a fairly short list. A suddent dysrhythmia such as ventricular fibrillation or developement of a third degree A-V block would cause a sudden drop. But even a third degree block will result in a ventricular rate of about 30-40 beats per minute and would not cause a sudden drop. A ruptured aortic aneuysm could cause it. A sudden stroke does not usually result in a sudden drop attack. A pulmonary emolism (massive) would cause it. So this is a short list.

1. Sudden ventricular fibrillation

2.Aortic aneurysm -sudden rupture

3.Pulmonary embolism (massive)

Now, there are many, many things which can cause a quick death over a period of hours to days. But this was a witnessed drop attack. That creates a very short list. There are things which can cause ventricular fibrillation...drugs. There are things which can augment the rupture of an existing aortic aneurysm. There are reasons a person might have a deep veinous thrombosis, which most likely would have been known and under treatment. So this leaves us with only ventriculation, assuming the other conditions are proven not to exist at post.

I would also hasten to say, Mr.Breitbart had many, many enemies. These enemies were, many of them, of a sordid, ruffian, SEIU, union type thugs who Andrew had pissed off. It is not unknown that these types resort to 'unconventional' tactic. We will never know.

I wonder if he had a recent medical examination. HAS he been under the care of a cardiologist? A simply physical examination on a man his size would probably have elicited the findings of an abdomenal aortic aneurysm.

There are many, many things, which are not natural causes which might cause a drop attack...mostly drugs, CN, succinylcholine injected IM (100 mg) would have resulted in apnea and hypoxia and on to sudden death.

I guess the thing which keeps going through my mind is the fact he had many, many enemies, many who held signs and advocated an unfortunent end to their political enemies.

I knew there would be some big news event, to try to steal the thunder of the Cold Case Posse report. I thought it would be too direct for them to assassinate Arpaio or anybody in the posse. Bin Laden’s already dead...

This serves a triple blow, because Breitbart was threatening to expose Obama on other (though somewhat related) issues, and in addition to providing cover for news media not adequately covering the posse’s report it also sends a shot across the bow for any reporters who have already been threatened by Soros several times, to show that Soros still means what he said and the posse’s report isn’t going to change that.

The bad thing (for Soros) is that the timing and visibility of this will strongly corroborate that Soros is playing a deadly game, and very possibly with the aid of covert government technology. Which is the way they’d have to do an assassination to make the timing and manner of death such that it looked like an accident but the news media would realize that it wasn’t - so it would have the appropriate chilling effect.

I wonder if any of Breitbart’s people had requested to be at the posse’s press conference.
