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.

If he suffered an air bubble induced heart attack then he may show bruises from the effort to restrain him for the injection.

We actually had a friend who was also about this age when he just dropped dead, just totally out of the blue while coaching his kids’ soccer game, no doubt. Left a wife and 3 kids. He was a military officer, totally fit — just had some sort of coagulation disorder. It can happen.

Angel’s Death they call them ... There can also be many heriditary weaknesses in major arteries ...

Everyday, living life loving what you do and being with friends and family, is precious.

Disgusted right now by all the liberal hate and venom being spewed out of their demonic mouths about him. The hate from the Left toward anyone who doesn’t agree with their demented views is just endless.

What tremendous hate in this clip from the people who wanted Andrew silenced http://audio.wrko.com/hosting/media/wrko/109858/y-abvscf-227.mp3 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

You ask if I was not willing to consider other scenarios. I pointed out that my post was ONE possible scenario. I didn’t say I wouldn’t consider others. I

n fact, it probably was a heart attack. But I wouldn’t put anything past the left wingers. And that includes those who vote for democrats.

Key Witness in Presidential Passport Tampering Case Murdered in 2008, No Arrests
On April 8, 2008, Obama confessed to having taken a trip to Pakistan in 1981. Here is what Obama said - Jake Tapper was there:
"So when I speak about having lived in Indonesia for four years, having family that is impoverished in small villages in Africa --knowing the leaders is not important -- what I know is the people...I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college -- I knew what Sunni and Shia was [sic] before I joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee."
... Much speculation has been made about what national passport Obama used when he traveled to Pakistan in 1981.
So Obama confessed to this trip two weeks after his passport was tampered with.


.... A key witness in a federal probe into passport information stolen from the State Department was fatally shot in front of a District church, the Metropolitan Police Department said yesterday. Lt. Quarles Harris Jr., 24, who had been cooperating with a federal investigators, was found late Thursday night slumped dead inside a car, in front of the Judah House Praise Baptist Church in Northeast, said Cmdr. Michael Anzallo, head of the department's Criminal Investigations Division.
Cmdr. Anzallo said a police officer was patrolling the neighborhood when gunshots were heard, then Lt. Harris was found dead inside the vehicle, which investigators would describe only as a blue car."


"Mysterious Dead Person Connected To 2008 Elections
The Washington Times reported April 5 that contractors for the State Department had improperly accessed passport information
for presidential candidates Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain, which resulted in a series of firings that reached into the agency's top ranks."

Andrew was Jewish. If he was Orthodox, he would have been guarded from asap after his death by an Orthodox Jewish doctor and then the Jewish Burial Society, the Chevra Kadisha, would take over to ensure that his body was not mutilated in any way. If an autopsy is necessary, they would be right there to make sure that only the minimum damage was done to the body. If true, he is in the best hands possible and they will not rest until the exact cause of death is known.
I am in shock, but hope with all my heart that they are the ones in charge here so there can be no coverup. The Chevra Kadisha are very powerful, especially in CA, and like pit bulls when it comes to one of their own.
Having just been through a near death experience of my own, it has been a curiousity to me why some outspoken Conservatives have been experiencing these types of sudden death or near death situations. Others seem to have gone 180 degrees from their stated, long time principles until they are almost unrecognizable. Andy Breitbart has just been one of the most prominent. But there is Drudge and Coulter who seem to have forfeited ALL of their Conservative principles. Something is going on that is just not right.

I follow Breitbart and I wondered why he retweeted the vile things the left posts to him. Recently he said it was to expose the lefts hypocrisy and intolerance.

One of the insults they commonly posted was he gay or something sexual insult involved with being gay.

I asked them are they homophobes? I would tweet, is being gay a bad thing to you? Didn’t make sense to me since many of them are gay. One had a avatar of his *ahem* A****le. That was what Breitbart was doing when he retweeted their tweets. They are vile hypocrites.

They are DailyKos, Media Matters, Acorn, Seiu, OFA, Shoq, many paid posters to attack any opposition to Obama. They come in teams when a event to expose Obama is released. Many new accounts. Our tax dollars are being used against us by Obama. We pay for many of these people.

There is an explanation. Soros desperately wants to keep the public from hearing it though. I’m hoping Breitbart’s death doesn’t scare away the people who need to tell us the truth.

I’m glad you survived your near-death-experience.

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.

Few of us doubt liberals are capable of murder for political reasons... that says much about how Obama and liberals have 'united'... rather than 'divided' and how the MSM's hatred of conservative Americans has poisoned the culture.

I wonder how the 'liberals' will use this to bash us further... wait for it - it'll happen.

That’s not yes or no.

You seem interested in pointing out inconsistencies in posters here at FR. Have you been pointing out the inconsistency in George Soros supporting both the gay/abortion agendas AND ALSO supporting Islamic terrorists? With a 13+-year posting history I’m sure you can find some really good places where you’ve pointed out the cognitive dissonance in Soros and his followers...

“There are drugs that can mimic a heart attack. “

I saw a true crime story about a man who killed his wife this way (other prior wives, too, I think) injecting something like succinol-something. It doesn’t stay in the bloodstream to be detected, and looks like a heart attack.

I immediately thought, how could they say “natural causes” within 5 hours of death because there is no way an autopsy was completed that quickly, surely not blood work results with toxicology and all that. And if it was “un-expected” that in and of itself would warrant an autopsy.

Are there ways to induce a massive heart attack on someone so that it does not show up in an autopsy? I think hussein and his thugs have their untraceable fingerprints all over this one.

My thoughts exactly.

“Listening to Hannity on Fox earlier he said that Brietbart got very little sleep. He was up late and out all the time.”

This can kill you. Trust me on this, I had my wakeup call three weeks ago. (TIA).

It almost always takes an event for an older healthy male to realize he isn’t 28 anymore, that we can’t do the things we used to do when we were younger, without consequence.

Luckily, I lived through mine with only minor consequences, but it’s a warning.

Here’s some video on inducing a heart attack- from 1975 - I posted it before in case you didn’t see it.

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

Breitbart was dealing with dynamite - he stood to make trouble for people receiving billions of dollars in graft! Not hard to think it’s possible when there are already many people who would kill you for your pocket change.

He has a record of successfully uprooting weeds like Anthony Weiner. Breitbart was a real threat.

He should have released the tapes immediately, he would have been safer.

“Are there ways to induce a massive heart attack on someone so that it does not show up in an autopsy?”

I remember an episode of “America’s Most Wanted” or similar where some guy used succinylcholine (sp?) to kill his wife. Doesn’t show up in a tox screen. Mimics a heart attack. Horrid because it paralyzes all the muscles, including those for breathing, but the mind is not affected at all. The victim knows exactly what’s going on but can’t react, and it’s slow. They caught the guy, Dave somebody, hiding out on some Caribbean island, I think.

Look at what happened to those on Clintons’ Enemies List compliments of the Arkansas Mafia. Then consider how much more evil Hussein is than Billary, and how much more sophisticated Chicago thuggery is than almost anywhere else.
