I read this thread from the beginning and someone posted before 9:30am that Beitbart himself tweeted six hours before. Common sense would mean he would have still been alive at 3:30am but he was pronounced dead around midnight? Who can explain the tweet he made 3 hours after he died?

I'm listening to Andrew speaking to Levin right now, obviously taped. When was this interview done?

I'm absolutely heartsick over the death of Andrew Breitbart. HUGE loss for conservatives.

May God bless Andrew's wife, children, extended family, and his many, many friends...

I'll miss him. Don't let the irrational hatred from the left bother you freeper friends - it wouldn't bother Andrew. ‎"I do what I do because the mainstream media chooses not to do it," Breitbart said. "The game of the left controlling the narrative ... is ending." 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. ...At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night." - Andrew Breitbart 2012 Job well done brother.

“I vow to thee, my country, all earthly things above,
Entire and whole and perfect, the service of my love;
The love that asks no question,
the love that stands the test,
That lays upon the altar the dearest and the best;
The love that never falters, the love that pays the price,
The love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice.

I heard my country calling, away across the sea,
Across the waste of waters she calls and calls to me.
Her sword is girded at her side, her helmet on her head,
And round her feet are lying, the dying and the dead.
I hear the noise of battle, the thunder of her guns,
I haste to thee my mother, a son among thy sons.

And there’s another country, I’ve heard of long ago,
Most dear to them that love her,
most great to them that know;
We may not count her armies, we may not see her King;
Her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering;
And soul by soul and silently, her shining bounds increase,
And her ways are ways of gentleness, and all her paths are peace.”

- I Vow to Thee My Country, Sir Cecil Spring-Rice

RIP Andrew Breitbart, a son among American sons

Haven't posted here in a while but this news has really broken me. I have been a faithful follower of Andrew's for the past few years. He's fought a battle not many can endure and came out winning now matter how you look at it. A fearless fighter for liberty, for sure. I pray for his family and hope he is watching down on all of us, working along side God filling our hearts with tenacity and bravery.

Lord, please watch over all of our freedom fighters and continue to see us through this battle.

Back home now. Poured a glass of wine and now may allow my tears to flow.

I still cannot get over it. Maybe, just maybe, he had to fake his own death to save his family?

Maybe, just maybe, once the evil one is out of office in 2012, he will come out? Maybe, just maybe, he’ll be working behind the scenes with his most trusted people to get the tapes out?

Maybe....just maybe.

I’m so sorry to hear that. We lost a good, conservative warrior today. It’s hard to understand why God takes a good man so young, but he has his reasons. I’d like to extend my condolences to his wife and four children. It will most certainly be the hardest on them. Rest with God, Andrew.

Weird day.

Andrew Breitbart is silenced. Sheriff Joe reveals the birth certificate is an obvious forgery. And Rush gets a bomb scare.

The Rush one is interesting as maybe more credible threats had been recently made to his security team and they were on high alert.

Weirder and weirder.

I love most of his videos, but I must say when I saw Andrew recently in the news screaming to the leftist protesters..”behave yourselves, behave yourselves” over and over and over...he looked angry and it was sort of a pointless endeavor. Why would they even consider what he was yelling? They are a bunch of badly brainwashed liberals and I think to some degree, their demons got inside Breitbart by resentment. A lot of small irriations can easily mount to a stress that can make the heart stop. Happens everyday. Could have been the case here. I heard a talk show host, o, Mark Levin, saying that God will act as He wants to at times. Come on now! God did not kill Andrew. But God allows us to be impatient and angry if that is what we want. How much of that did Andrew have, I do not know...but it is not normal to have the heart stop at 43 years old...or ever!

My first wife died of a heart attack and she was only two weeks short of her 42nd. birthday. So it does happen to people in that age range.

Oh, how awful. Well... my cousin died at 43 of a heart attack, but they didn't call it "natural causes," they called it a heart attack. I guess it's a terminology issue, but geez. This is still just a shock. It's 12 hours since I heard it and I'm still kind of dazed.

I must have been the last conservative news junkie to hear about his death earlier this evening. It was on a delayed broadcast of Hannity’s program here in Denver. They kept talking about him in the past tense and I couldn’t understand why. Very shocking to hear that he is no longer with us. Always liked Andrew since he came onto the public scene. Just heard a snippet of him the other day filling in for Dennis Miller. You will be greatly missed Andrew. You did a lot of good for the conservative cause. There’s going to be a big gap on our side now. Rest in Peace...

Hate in and of itself is more evil than the thing you hate. When we allow ourselves to get so absorbed by our hate for someone or something, it can slowly destroy us from within.

Thus we should pray as much, if not more, for those we despise. By blessing those who curse us, it is like pouring hot coals upon their heads.

As for God taking Andrews life. God knows the day we will be born and the day we will die. Andrew was destined to die today, whether he was angry with the left, or if he was a preacher speaking to children in a Sunday school class who had no knowledge of politics. Our allotted time in this world cannot be extended by anything we do, just the quality of life we live.

Well, there was one man who was granted an extension, but considering the troubles caused by the extension, we should take a lesson and be careful what we ask god for. The people of Judea would have been much better off if Hezekiah had died when he was originally scheduled to die, Please indulge me as I share the following;

King Hezekiah, was pious man who reverently listened to his relative the famous prophet Isaiah. The Northern kingdom had already been taken into captivity by the Assyrians around 722 BC, 7 years before Hezekiah became king of Judea the Southern kingdom. Most of his reign was markedly better than most other Kings the Southern Kingdom had.

Then after his cousin, Isaiah, informed him that he would soon die, he appealed to God, saying:

"Remember now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight."
The prophet Isaiah had not yet left the city, when he was told by God that he heard Hezekiah's prayer and wanted Isaiah to give the king His answer;
"Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years."

Hezekiah then married a young Phoenician princess named Hephzibah who did not worship the One True God as Hezekiah did. She bore him a son and that child became king when he was but twelve years old. Under his mothers influence, he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD. Ruling for 55 years Manasseh would turn the hearts of the people against God

Among the many evil things he did was to rebuild the very temples to false gods his father had removed from the site of Judea. Inside the Temple Solomon built for God, Manasseh put altars for the Phoenician god Astarte and Asherah poles. These poles were phallic symbols set in stone bases for pornographic decorations while young boys and girls would be used for the sexual pleasures of the adults who came in to worship false gods inside the true God's Temple.

He also practiced augury, necromancy, witchcraft, divination, all while consulting mediums and false prophets. These mediums and prophets were appointed to high positions of authority over the people when Manasseh replaced his fathers faithful and Godly cabinet advisers with them.

Along with his fathers advisers, thousands of other righteous men and prophets of God were murdered. The most notable of these prophets was Isaiah, who was sawed in two when he was found hiding from Manasseh inside a hollow log. As if all that and more were not bad enough, he also sent several of his own sons through the fire in Baals Temple while they were still alive in the Valley of Ben Hinnom (2 Chronicles 33:6)

Interestingly, Manasseh is often times used for sermons on finishing strong based on Hebrews 12:1-4, because later in his life he would humble himself before God. He would remove all the evil temples from the land and even cleansed Solomon's Temple. Despite his monstrous wickedness, the Lord was still Manasseh's God. Though anger swept across God's face, he knew Manasseh would repent of his evil and end up being saved. So while Hezekiah's prayerful desire to live longer was granted, it would be the reason one of the most evil men ever ruled as King of the Southern Kingdom. Yet, we will still meet Manasseh one day in heaven.

That is why we pray for for both our loved ones and those we would rather hate. Regardless of how wicked a man, or woman is, they can still be forgiven. Maybe it was the hate Andrew held for liberals that eventually weakened his heart and thus killed him, we will never really know. However, the Lord does tell us that the hatred we hold inside against others, very well could be our doom.

Imagine trying to love a man like Manasseh, if all you knew about him was the evil he did. By today's standards, he was just as evil, if not more so, than Hitler, Stalin, or Mao was.

Sorry for the long winded comment, but I get on a roll sometimes, and God really put me on a roll.

Well, I disagree with your premise. God does not make us love or love Him, that is the one difference we have from all His other creation. He wants free choice to call to be saved. So our path can be altered by our will to call for help, it is not set in stone and I do not think that Andrew had to die so early at all.

It took to post 167 and 168 to get an independent source or two. Even Drudge was using the original link to bighollywood, which proved to be true, but since no one wanted to believe, it took some time to corroborate. The time it took from death to announcement, was the surprise to me. There were a few hours gone by.

I just read an article on a site called infowars I think...the guy was talking about the video AB was going to release that COULD have, he says de-railed Obama’s re-election hopes.

Why does anyone assume the videos won’t be released because Andrew died. Someone has them. People close to him know what his wished would have been and SOMEONE will still release them, I believe.

Exactly

In light of AB “coincidentally” dying on the very day and also with the revelation of his interview with Sheriff Arpaio, people are going to be anxiously awaiting these videos and doubtful anyone is going to just forget about it.

My guess is that once Andrew is buried and at rest, his confidantes will work together to carry out his wishes.
