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’m in shock over this. This man was doing what the mainstream media doesn’t do... this is a great loss for conservatives.

I am shocked, also. This is a very tragic loss.

God bless this man for all that he did. Prayers for his family and friends.

Give Sean Hannity CREDIT for getting the word out about the need to keep quiet on the issue of “conspiracy theories”. These conspiracy theories not only make conservative sites such as Free Republic look BAD but also adds more pain to the family and friends of Mr. Breibart.

Please fellow FRpers, we can be better than that. Please refraim from the conspiracy stuff. Thank-you.

His legacy demands that the tapes he was going to release be released, with balloons and skyrockets and all the voice people can give them. His death is such a major loss that others must come along and fill the void and go on with his unfinished work.

“These conspiracy theories not only make conservative sites such as Free Republic look BAD”

But the INSANE hate and celebratory casket dancing by the left on other websites DOES NOT make them look bad.

Mostly because NO ONE in the mainstream media is going to have the balls to report it, since they are too busy joining in the revelry.

You should SEE some of the crap being posted about AB on some of the lefty media sites, like Daily Kos.

I am devastated.
This is the Conservative/Tea Party equivalent of Gen. Robert E. Lee losing his “right arm”, Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, at Chancellorsville.
Very sad and disheartening day.
But we must now re-double our efforts.
RIP Mr. Breitbart.

I’m interested in the truth as well. And seeing clearly that Obama and his minions have no problem using some questionable tactics, I’d like to see the case fully investigated. KOS people would hate an investigation into the situation - it may cast a bad light on their dear leader.

The truth is what counts, not worrying about scaring the sheeple that maybe there are sociopaths in government. Potentially dangerous sociopaths.

On that note - check out the Sheriff Joe Thread - apparently this administration isn’t above forgery! And O was raised at the knee of Ayers who had no problem with the idea of killing people to further the progressive cause.

Let’s also not jump to the conclusion it was ‘natural’ like the rubes they think we are. Real life isn’t a fairy land of rainbow colored ponies.

WASHINGTON--Chicago's Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn--vilified during Barack Obama's 2008 election and beyond as former Weather underground leaders--served dinner to Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson and his guests Sunday, after the founder of the conservative website bought time with the couple at an Illinois Humanities Council auction.

For a while there, I was reading "Illinois Humanities" as "Illuminati."

A fellow frequent business traveler friend of mine nearly died a couple of years ago in his early 40’s from blood clots that formed in his calves from flying so much. I’m guessing this could be a possibility given that Andrew traveled so much.

RIP

It’s the same as being on a jury and voting “not guilty” because the evidence isn’t there. Doesn’t mean I believe he didn’t do it.

"Just got the following BREAKING NEWS:

R. Doc Zortman Info just released: “Andrew was recently working with Sheriff Joe in Arizona on the Obama Eligibility issue. He worked with a team of investigators that would come into my coffee shop and meet with him to discuss how the investigation was going. Andrew was about to blow the lid off the whole story using of all things- the ink that was used from the certificate shown in Hawaii....today is the Sheriff Joe’s day top release the investigation results and Andrew shows up dead 18 hrs before the news conference.So now we will see if the press conference will even go on with out Sheriff Joe’s top witness.... Well played Obama, well Played....”

It appeared to me that Breitbart was aligned with the Coulter camp in ridiculing the eligibility issue.

If AB was working with Sheriff Joe, what does Ann Coulter have to do with it?

What am I missing here?



Where there's a shell, there's a way.

25 years ago, we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope.
Today we have Obama, no cash, and no hope!

If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.

Or you can get raw with these strings.

How about this gamechanger from America's Got Talent (which they SHOULD have won).

And finally, this, dedicated to the one and only rdb2, whose eyes are growing dim.

Either way, the violin is sweet yet LETHAL.

Do it!

Re: “hard to believe with so many crazies and threats he’d be walking alone after midnight.”

*************

I agree, esp. since anyone who heard him speak in L.A. over the past few years would’ve had access to his home. He often spoke of its locale in his speeches at events — a quick glimpse at Zabasearch and there you are — address and all. Whether or not this was natural causes, AB took too many chances, I believe.... If I were the family I’d make sure to carefully investigate everything using reliable officials. He will be sorely missed — a brave patriot, for sure!

Because Andrew was adopted, back in the days of closed adoption, perhaps he did not know the medical history of his biological parents.

One thing I noticed—he was prematurely grey. This often accompanies heart trouble and sudden death.

5:20 “I’ve got videos. This election we’re going to vet Barack Obama”

Makes one wonder if President Obeyme’s men did a “Vince Foster” on Breitbart...

Autopsy needed.

Where did he eat the last 24 hours before takinng that walk?

Believe me, I find the rejocing over AB’s death very, very sick, and close to the demonic by those on the left. I had been over to Twitter, typed in AB’s name and some of the comments were bad.

But at the same time, we cannot beat ourselves up over what are until the autopsy report(s) comes out over conspiracy theories which could be either true or not true until then.

‘________prematurely grey.’

The B-Complex vitamins have something to do with hair coloring.

Stress uses up the B-Complex vitamins.

Have always thought that’s what contributes to our presidents ‘prematurely turning grey’ in the White House.

Recommend daily supplimenting diet with B-Complex product.

Ventricular fib took my dad at 67. The only possibility of survival is if it occurs IN an ambulance, ICU, or ER, as they have around ninety seconds to get the paddles on you or there’s no possibility of resuscitation.

We assume there was no pain, and grateful that it was so fast (for him).

On the other hand they were very quick to label it natural causes, before an investigation. Better to say we don't know yet, looks like natural cause but will wait for the experts.

The Sheriff Joe thread said Breitbart interviewed him earlier in the day.
