In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012) ^ | 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.

There needs to be an inquest. I am not one for conspiracies but I think there is something rotten about this unless he had an undisclosed health issue that only his family knew about.

“They’ll have to do an autopsy.”

Not all coroners will automatically do a autopsy. If it has already been deemed natural causes, if he has had any medical history of certain conditions, it’s possible a too-busy county coroner won’t bother unless the family insists and are willing to wait a lengthy amount of time, for their turn in line, for it to be done, prolonging burial.

Sadly, I won’t be surprised at all if no autopsy is done.

I know tens of thousands followed AB...I did (do?) and i am sure that Twitter is just overwhelmed with followers (and noobs) “reading”’his tweets...but it keeps crashing (locking up) for me after about a day ago.

I know it is just a tech issue...but I wanted to post it. AB did get threatened..a lot. A couple tweets (in the last couple of days) stand out. I hope/pray that these will be looked into. Deeply. AB...gave it back to “them” and this was on his public Tweets...privately, I wonder about the stress...the worries got to him. I hope all avenues are checked out.

Radio is replaying his last interview with Larry O’Connor on WIBC from Tuesday. At the time, that interview on Tuesday struck me as very odd. After listening again-———maybe it wasn’t so odd....but for some reason it really caught me vs. other times I’ve heard him on the radio.

Rush talking about Andrew now. Breitbart was “outside himself” compared to a lot of people who focus on themselves. Notes that Breitbart gave he and Katherine a classic painting of Reagan for their wedding.

I choose to believe that God does forgive us for these minor slips in thought - how could we be expected to embrace such evil?!

Reading these comments and those who express some curiosity of what may be the ‘truth’ and responses to the effect of taking off the tin foil hats - I’m left wondering why it is some kind of crime to wonder what the facts are?! I realize people do die of ‘natural causes’ at a young age, yet, they are in the minority by and far.

I simply know that his brand will be missed. How I wish the pukes who have representing us in Congress had .000001% of Andrew’s courage. They all make me mad as he** ~

The day of the posse is a signal to the media - which have ALL been threatened that their lives were in danger if they reported on Obama’s eligibility problem.

We are witnessing the absolutely chilling, calculated movements of the Soros regime.

Last night there was a thread about Soros’ ex-girlfriend saying she wanted to release video of Soros. She claims that he had somebody stalk her. I commented in the thread last night that she isn’t the only person Soros has stalked and that her coming out to corroborate her claims at this precise moment could help people get a real picture of how Soros operates - and that his threats to the media were dead serious.

I knew there would be some big story to try to upstage the posse. That the big story would be so directly related to Soros threats on the media is beyond what even I expected though. They had to reiterate the threat to the media in light of this big event so I should have seen it coming, but this is so blatant that it may well totally blow Soros’ cover.

O’Reilly’s concerns for Breitbart were well-founded. O’Reilly knows what Soros has done; they all do. I wonder if Fox still doesn’t have anybody signed up to attend the posse’s press conference...

RIP Breitbart, well done. You were born for this time and you were the catalyst for a new era in journalism. I pray we maintain and take your BIG idea and continue to bring integrity back to our way of life. Righteous indignation woke us up to the corruption that was stealing our heritage and our children’s future.

The quote is from me. I was awakened in the middle of the night, felt something, got up, and it came to me. About 2 am.

The Obama list is getting longer.

- Donald Young - unsolved murder - tied to gay scandal
- LT Harris - unsolved murder - tied to passport records
- Ashley Turton - Car fire. ‘Acute alcohol amount.’ Wife of WH assistant.

If you start to include Valerie Jarretts tree it makes for some interesting reading.

Her husband died at 40 of a heart attack. And his 2nd wife died at at 44.

Hard to believe. Very sad. I also am a little suspicious. Natural condition? Prayers and condolences to Andrew’s family.

We are engaged in massive spiritual warfare.

Which time zone are you in?

I was saddened to hear this news. It’s always a sad thing for me to see a person die so young. When it’s a person who had dedicated their life to helping the nation return to sound principles, I feel like I have lost a good friend and ally.

I was not a big follower of Andrew. I was aware of him. I did believe he was doing good work, and I do feel like I have lost a good friend and ally.

My thoughts, sympathies, and prayers go out to his family, friends, and associates. They also go out to efforts that will suffer by his perpetual absence.

Good men are too few and far between. They are a national resource. Things that should be done, will go undone now.

I will miss seeing Andrew pop up in the media from time to time, knowing that he was still expending his energy on projects I approved of.

When I heard he collapsed during a walk, that is exactly what I thought. Was there someone with an umbrella in the vicinity?
