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 think Churchill said: Courage is the first virtue because
it makes all the others possible. Andrew was Mr. Courage.
Another line, from "The Hustler", when Paul Newman refuses
to go with George C. Scott after the suicide of Laurie Piper,
Newman say: No, because if I do that then she never lived, and she never died, and we both know that isn't true.
Andrew's courage should move us to take up the culture war wherever we are.
This is how we can give testimony to Andrew's life.

Obviously “they” had to announce the death but hadn’t constructed a credible story.

No celebrity death has ever been announced like that.

There are many ways to kill someone and make it appear medical related, and the Chicago Outfit is well versed in them. President Obama has a lot of friends in low places, e.g., Tony Rezko (his "made men" connection) and Bill Ayres (his Commie connection). Mr. Breitbart lived in Los Angeles County, California, where covering up suspicious deaths has been old practice for many decades. (Remember the movie, Chinatown, based in Los Angeles during the 1930s, where the powers that be covered up the dirty dealings of land developers.) In our time, the county and state governments are firmly in Democrat hands.

Breitbart was a threat to the leftists in power, and he had connections to both the conservative media like Fox and the radio talkers and the alternative, libertarian leaning new sources in cyberspace. He is no longer a threat to them.

Fox has just announced there will be an autopsy.

If I used the word ‘coroner’ incorrectly, my apology.

Here is a podcast from a local Boston radio show on which he appeared a few days ago. He mentions at one point how he had bodyguards with him at CPAC.

The last comment I posted before I refreshed to the index page and saw the headline that Breitbart had died was at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2852860/posts?page=68#68 .

I was talking about why the Cold Case Posse - as well as any follow-up criminal investigation of Obama - needs to be funded. What I said will be even more the case now that Andrew Breitbart is dead, which I believe is a very POINTED message to the media who might have considered reporting on the credible evidence that will be offered up by a formal law enforcement investigation today.

Here’s what I said:

I’ll just say one more thing about costs. Willingness to come forward as a witness sometimes depends on whether a person and/or family is able to afford a bodyguard, or whether law enforcement can afford to put somebody in a witness protection program.

Glenn Beck left Fox because Fox wouldn’t pay to protect lower-level staffers who were being continuously threatened by Soros operatives. Beck could pay to provide protection for himself and his family but not for everybody in the whole darn company who was being threatened.

We are dealing with the mob. Literally. And freedom never has been free. It’s disillusioning, I know, but it’s time we all realized that if money can buy an assassination, then money is needed to buy defenses. It’s time the public realized exactly what deadly game is being played by the puppet-masters of that smiling guy reading off the teleprompter.

Why do you assume the Obama tapes will not be released? AB was not stupid. There are probably multiple copies in the hands of trusted journalists. If he was killed, they can’t kill everyone.

I met Andrew three times. We have lost a great warrior, who was inspired by Dennis Prager. Andrew believed in ethics and the truth. Leaving a wife and four children, five to twelve years of age, is such a tragedy. RIP, Andrew. You did good work and made a difference.

I looked up ‘coroner’ on Wikipedia,and they do perform autopsies in certain states. They actually have various duties as well as removing a corpse.

I would not have the stomach for that.

Prayers for his family. If there was foul play involved the families best protection is to release anything Andrew may have been holding. Release it all. Just finished watching his Cpac speech. He would probably agree.

I wonder how thick cloth has to be to repel those darts. Anybody know? Seems like somebody would have to know where you were at, maybe follow you with a cooler to keep the poison frozen until you were outside and in range. I wonder what the range is.

I wonder if the cancer-causing stuff has to be frozen, and if one injection does the job. I also wonder if there’s a particular form of cancer that they favor. Probably something that is typically fast-acting and has no obvious presenting symptoms that would clue the person in to get tested and treated. Something like ovarian cancer, for women. What’s similar for men?

Also makes me wonder if the same technology could be used to get a manufactured bio-warfare germ into the public - make it look like it came from a mosquito maybe...

Breitbart was a good man and a good warrior. We should count ourselves blessed if we fight half as hard as that man. He died so young! But God’s will be done, in Earth as it is in heaven. It was his time to return home. Now we must pick up that flag and fight the good fight.

To say that I am stunned doesn’t even begin to cover what I’m feeling right now. When I heard it this morning I thought for sure it was a lie, I thought maybe some left wing freak hacked his site, but then I heard on Fox News that he had passed away late last night, I am still in shock. Andrew had tweeted last night just like he always did. He was such a wonderful man, I will never forget him and that he did for the Conservative movement.

I am very suspicious of this - he apparently had some very damning footage of the big Zero.

As for the heart attack - if I were in ‘team’ that was going to “silence him for the good of county” </sarcasm> I would look at any preconditions the mark had and then exploit it.

Also the tech’s been around since at least 1975, as this shows:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSEnurBApdM&feature=player_embedded

Again this is all too creepy - the coincidence with the tapes is just too weird.

Is there any connections here:

March 1, 1971

A bomb explodes in the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., causing an estimated $300,000 in damage but hurting no one. A group calling itself the “Weather Underground” claimed credit for the bombing, which was done in protest of the ongoing U.S.-supported Laos invasion.

I hope he had made arrangements for those videos to be released posthumously just in case. He must have guessed that assassination was a possibility. After all there is a lot of precedent for it with this and the previous Democrat administrations.

I agree with butterdezillion, we are in massive spiritual warfare . Always are to some extent but it seems it is really ramping up right now.

>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.<

Surely an autopsy will be done on the man! There are countless death threats against him all over the internet.

Fox has just announced there will be an autopsy.

I hope that includes a complete tox screen. There are drugs that can mimic a heart attack.
