Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for the gift of this young warrior Andrew Breitbart. We pray for his family and friends for their loss. We pray for their strength and comfort.

In Your Holy Name,
Amen

Why would the family need to be in on a murder plot? The only ones who would need to be would be whoever issued the order and whoever carried it out. The medical centers and coroner would see things as the most likely and common scenario and proceed accordingly. The family wouldn't question the officials opinions and why would they?

I'm just saying that if there is foul play involved there doesn't need to be lots of operators in the know. Personally, I think the timing is suspicious but we should let things play out a bit before deciding one way or the other

A serious loss to our cause. Yes indeed. Breitbart is survived by his wife Suzie, four children, Samson, 12; Mia, 10; Charlie, 6; and William, 4, his sister, Tracy, and his parents, Jerry and Arlene.

My husband died in our back yard on the farm with no history of heart problems age 51...One of my son’s first heart attach was in the mid fortys. His brother had to have heart surgery before the age of 50 and found out he only had 2 coronary arterys.....For my family, there is a family history of heart attacks before the age of 50 for the males....its sad, but for some its hard to beat the genetics you inherit...In those cases knowledge of your family tree is important....Men, don’t ignore your health, your not superman,

natural causes

Now how would anyone know that?

Did they run toxic screenings? Did they check his body for injection sites?

Someone saw him collapse? At midnight? In Brentwood?

This just doesn't pass the smell test.

Breitbart had a lot of enemies in high places.

Hannity mentioned he had a heart conditions. And others mentioned he had health issues and didn’t take very good care of himself. Slept only a few hours a night and was constantly on the go. “Raise against time”

Collapsed? After shaking hands with someone, after getting ‘coffee’ from someone? After feeling a sting from a dart shot by someone? Delayed reaction from poison introduced in to food he ate while out?

If there is a video of Obama from his college days he had, this ‘natural cause’ crap is just that, crap. I’d have an independent doctor there witnessing the autopsy and I’d take possession of the body immediately thereafter before LA mistakenly ‘cremates’ it. These people are singularly evil.

I heard the same about his heart condition ... may very well be the result of natural causes.

Just can’t get past the coincidences of soon to be released Obama college tapes, dinner with Bill and Bernadine, walking alone at midnight ... after rather recent death threats. He made quite a few enemies; SEIU, ACORN, Weiner, Sherrod et al ... this list goes on.

The problem with conspiracy theories these days is that most of them are true. You really think that the Kenyan would not stoop this low?

1. He'd just happen to go for a stroll at around midnight?
2. There would be somebody who not only saw him out walking, but saw him at the exact moment he collapsed?

I know I only live in San Diego but, it is not a usual thing to take a walk in CA at midnight...even for L.A.

I first thought these two points you made were very odd things to have occurred. If anything, that is an hour you especially do not want to be out walking, even in Brentwood...unless you're out walking your dog. I've heard no mention of that so I think it's odd. FWIW

—Sources told The Times that Breitbart was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center about midnight, where he was pronounced dead of natural causes—

That’s just weird wording. Nowadays they say things like “apparent heart attack” or “apparent severe stroke”, etc. Hospitals don’t say “natural causes”. I don’t get it.

It would be insane not to do an autopsy..It is very unusual for a younger person to drop dead of a heart attack. Andrew was viciously hated by the left as we can see from their evil, disgusting tweets. I will not post here what I first thought when I heard he had died. Who on earth would want to have a twitter account with the likes of those who seem to dominate it?

I lived in Brentwood. I’d like to know roughly where he lived because there are private rural areas or others more public, like near San Vicente.

Men, don’t ignore your health, your not superman,

Not only men. I was a seemingly healthy, 47-year old woman when I had a heart attack and went into cardiac arrest (twice, in the ambulance - thank God for the EMTs who defibrillated me).

I had NO known heart problems, NO family history (they all get cancer), didn't smoke, wasn't overweight, and exercised regularly. Turns out I have a congenitally deformed left anterior descending artery that either went into spasm, or had a blood clot (the angiogram wasn't able to determine the definite cause).

Orson Bean was his father-in-law?

Bean was just this afternoon featured on a re-run of THE CLOSER.

How awful for Breitbart’s family. I’ll never believe this wasn’t murder, no matter what he report.

The story on Drude right now is that he walked into The Brentwood a little over 2 hours before he died. He talked with someone at the bar for 2 hours and they exchanged contact info.

Breitbart walked out and died around an hour later.

I work right down the street from The Brentwood and grew up in Bel Air and Brentwood so I know the area very well as you do. We know the very nice homes start just 1/2 block north of The Brentwood and spread out west and east. Not so much south.

If he walked there, it might explain why he was walking around midnight not wanting to drink for 2 hours and drive.

This is the same Brentwood where OJ could commit two violent murders around midnight and the only person who saw anything was a barking dog.

Breitbart goes for a quiet midnight stroll by himself, and there's a witness who actually sees him the very second he collapses from a fatal heart attack.

Where Nicole lived was far from The Brentwood (bar) is. I’m assuming Breitbart lived in the better area .... just north of The Brentwood bar.

Did he walk to the bar to avoid drinking for 2 hours and driving?

IMHO, anything is possible at this point. Until more credible info comes in, I'm not going to hop on any conspiracy bandwagons, but I'm not going to rule them out either, given the left's historic propensity for violence.

BTW, the bomb squad has just been called to Limbaugh's house...

the EgyptAir crash from a few years before, when the plane went straight into the ocean, seemed like a big cover up. Big time.

From what I remember, a terrorist copilot flipped it upside down and dove it straight into the Atlantic.

Bomb threats are a dime a dozen ...

You mentioned Nicole’s condo. Have you ever been to her building on Bundy? If you have, you know it is on a winding very dark patch of Bundy. The front of the building before her gate is wall to wall plants and trees. Who would see the murder in dense trees and bushes is pitch black light!

Breitbart. He drank at the bar for 2 hours straight. How did the killers get him outside and walking? How did the cause a heart attack? I think some people LOVE conspiracies.

And the family says he has a history of heart problems.

I know I was crushed when my only sibling, my brother, died alone at home of a heart attack at age 43 almost 20 years ago.

Andrew did what few of us really ever want to do, namely aggressively confront the Left in their face.

Perfectly said. That's exactly what he did so well.

Why aren't more of us unafraid to do so?

Thanks for the info. I was looking to see if he was out walking a dog or something. Plus, I didn’t catch that he was at The Brentwood. I thought he was at home and took a walk. Makes more sense now.

I just knew Breitbart from the work I did on Harry Reid and he helped there. I bumped into him at two or three Tea Party events, had some phone calls with him and his staff. He is my inspiration for what I have to do going forward.

That is young for a woman, glad you made it OK. Genetics can play a big role in what we get and what we don’t seem to get..You like my son #2 had a birth deformaty that was inside and not outside the body. He has only 2 coronary arteries, but according to tests, is small arteries are growing.

He was such a delight, the Irish call these rare individuals ‘a lovely man’. AB was a lovely man’ He could light up a room instantly with primarily self deprecating humor. I don’t think we’ll ever see the entire package of tapes AB had in his possession. I really feel sorry for Suzi and the children. Growing up without a father is a bum deal. Pray for them all please!

Good that your son at least knows that he has a problem. Up here in Oregon, we just recently had a couple of young high school athletes who dropped dead. They had no known heart defect. One was able to be defibrillated, but he’s got a long road before he recovers completely, if ever. The other boy unfortunately did not survive.

My son with only 2 coronary arteries played foot ball all through school and as a junior was playing varsity...ran track and the 4 man relay from his high school (he and 3 of his buddies) went on to state meet, didn’t win there. Never showed anything up until his 40’s....He had no other heart problems tho at that time and we didn’t know about his arteries until he had a test done with the dye (forget what its called, senior moment, I am sorry) and it showed up. I was grateful when my 2 oldest ones passed their fathers age when he died...he also had no cardiac history, just died in the back yard sitting beside his truck while we were putting up hay..he left the barn because of the dust from the hay coming off the elevator and the rest of us finished and found him. He didn’t say he had chest pain, the idiot, we would have stopped and taken him to emergency...

I nagged my kids from that time on to watch out for their health, they were all married except one....
