Andrew Breitbart Was Planning Huge New Web Project on Eve of Sudden Death (Bigs redone this Sunday)
laweekly.com ^ | Mar. 2 2012 | Simone Wilson

Posted on 03/02/2012 3:21:00 PM PST by Ron C.

Well, Hannity didn't reveal much about Breitbart's big posthumous project last night that we didn't already know (the constant cross-promotion continues, even in death!), but his guest, Steve Bannon, a documentary filmmaker and close friend of Breitbart's, did drop some hints on what's to come.

"We spent the last two years working a website that on Sunday night..." Bannon said before he was cut off by Hannity. He later added that Breitbart had "left the office at 10 p.m." on Wednesday. He had been pouring all his energy into the project, his "obsession," up until the moment he died.

Joel Pollack, the guy that runs Breitbart's sites, says that, "This Sunday, there will be a total relaunch of all the websites. The tapes are separate, and coming later."

The tapes he refers to are the tape of Obama while in college!

This comes from one of the most scurrilous rags in LA - that STILL fears Breitbart! I believe they have good reason to fear what is coming. Andrew built an empire that uses the internet in imaginative and aggressive ways... may it long prosper!

I truly believe it will - in ever greater ways.

Exactly the reason why it's so hard for me to watch Hannity. He cuts everyone off (conservatives, liberals, etc) and you never get to truly hear what they wanted to say.

Amen.

I didn't follow Breitbart's career that closely, but the fact that Team Obama and its fellow Marxists so clearly feared him means that he was on the path of the righteous.

Last night (this morning) on ‘Red Eye’ one of the panelists said Breitbart referred to the new website as “Drudge 2.0”.

Hannity needed to say “America is a mean country Mr. President?” or some other nonsense to the 10,000th time ...

Man alive, he’s embarassing.

I’m praying that Mr. Bannon keeps Andrew’s ‘empire’ alive and well. I’m sure there is an income there that needs to continue to support Andrew Breitbart’s family!

Hannity is amazingly ill-suited to his job. And yet he gets the ratings that keep him there. I find it about impossible to listen to him, however, so I’m not sure exactly how that happens.

My understanding is that it's going to be the Big New Portal, like Drudge + HuffPo, but fearlessly CONSERVATIVE.

I join you in serious prayer. I’m all but certain his friends and trusted business partners will continue his endeavors and keep care of his family. From everything I’ve read, Andrew was truly loved and respected. He did right by his friends and colleagues. Now it’s their turn to honor and do right by him. Pray they will. I am very hopeful. He was a giant.

Yet he's far preferable to the World's Least Humble Man that precedes him. Fox COULD do far better than they do, but they've gotten lazy with success. I actually prefer Greta to Sean or BOR, (who's parents apparently never taught him one single thing about the subject of humility).

Yes! I read that. The sub-head, "The Internet is more like real life than the 20th-century media was." - ran so true to me, as did the article, expounding on that theme.

There's another link in that page, that I also read - with a LOT of good links within it!

So much about this man that so many didn't know.

IMHO the only reason Hannity is where he is today is because he rode on Rush Limbaugh’s coattails. If not for Rush; Hannity would not be where he is.

I have a hard time understanding why this would make a whit of difference in the 2012 election. What could possibly be revealed that would change the opinion of Obama voters?

BJ Clinton was caught in the act, impeached, and remains to this day the most popular Democrat figure alive.

Take a shot every time Hannity begins a sentence with the word "now." You'll be lucky if you are still standing after thirty minutes.

Hannity has become his own worst enemy, sad to say.

Don't forget, Fox/Newscorp’s largest stockholder, after Murdoch who is under relentless pressure, is the man Percy Sutton, Malcolm X's attorney, identified as Obama’s college benefactor, the man who then created the lavishly funded Alwaleed bin-Talal Islamic Studies Center at Harvard Divinity School. Bin-Talal boasted of his editorial control. Anyone notice the front page story in the Newscorp/WSJ touting the inroads being made by Peaceful Muslim businesses in the US a few weeks back? The guys at Fox are surrounded. They can't put their families and incomes at risk by angering their employer. They also shouldn't be trusted as news sources.

Look what Obama did to the one Congressman who dared raise the eligibility question, Nathan Deal. He was beset with ethics charges. Look what the government did to Scooter Libby. They prosecuted after having a confession from Armitage, Powells’ Asst. Secretary, that he, Armitage, had revealed Valarie Plame’s identity, and that was GW Bush. The IRS is being used to silence TEA parties, which are often shoestring operations run by moms and retired people, trusting that a non-profit might save a bit on copy machines or phone bills. The vicious far left and the vicious Islamic muslim fundamentalists have allied, as David Horowitz foretold eight years ago, to remove our freedoms. Eventually, they will collide, but for now they are allies. That is why Obama rejects Canada's oil in favor of Chavez' and Saudi oil, and grants deep ocean permits to Brazil while shutting off American and European companies. We will look off our coasts at foreign oil rigs from whom we must purchase the oil to enable us to drive the autos they will manufacture for us. How long does anyone think that can last?

Money and power corrupt, and the Saudis are using our money to insure that we remain dependent and they remain in control, putting their proxies into both political and non-political government positions. Obama rewards the benefactors, Immelt, who buys Chevy Volts and exports manufacturing to China, Buffet whose railroad picks up what oil we still import from Canada, at three times the price of pipeline transport, and Unions, who will milk the productive sector till there is none left. Eventually, the union and government workers, except those at the very top, will learn the folly of listening to the mainstream, or to most legislators. Corruption has penetrated every corner of society, and economics will eventually prove again why central control is inefficient, and why it will yield to free men, whether from China or India.

If these tapes are as damaging as folks are hoping, I’m pretty sure Breitbart would’ve put copies on CDs and distributed them to many trusted sources. Even if he were assassinated, the show would go on. One You Tube dump and the video would be in the hands of thousands in perpetuity.

President Lincoln was planning on repatriating the former slaves back to Africa. We’re assured that wasn’t a conspiracy either or the group that killed him was just some “disgruntled” Confederate sympathizers.

Unlike Hannity, O’Reilly, and other so-called Populist blowhards that are just promoting themselves.

I can’t think of too many around these days like Breitbart, certainly not at his level. Greg Guttman has hope because he still doesn’t seem to care whether he is liked or not as long as he gets to say his piece in the wee hours of the morning.

This case needs to be looked at very seriously. The fact that we are so quick to call an assassination a conspiracy theory has made us dismiss such things before we have all the evidence. I don't know what happened here, but it's a dangerous path to just rule out any kind of assassination. That has historically been a part of politics.

There are a lot of ways a person can commit murder and are never given a thought about as a suspect. If a person kills another person with something that doesn't leave obvious signs of foul play many are never questioned because the death is considered natural causes and everyone around the case accept that. There are numerous murders that would have gone unsolved based on the normal preliminary death investigation if it hadn't been for circumstantial evidence or past violence between a couple that gives reason to put more into the investigation.

How many spouses have murdered the other and it was written off as natural causes, and closed without anyone in the family or investigation believing anything other than that? It's probably a surprisingly large amount when compared with murderers who have been caught.

And just like there are a lot of people out there who will not give up conspiracy theories even when there is proof unveiled showing they are wrong, there are also those who act as if nothing like these things are even possible.

When you have an influential Conservative who has very damaging evidence against a radical liberal President you have to be suspicious. Obama is involved with all kinds of radical thugs, and even admitted anti-American terrorist who already have blood on there hands. Anyone who thinks that radicals like Ayers and Dorn wouldn't commit murder if they thought they could get away with it and help their cause are kidding themselves. Obama is surrounded by the most radical people of any President in history. This case should be investigated by the best investigators, and given the resources needed to find an answer. Breitbart’s family and friends should be diligent in their press for finding the truth, and protecting the information he had against the regime. A toxicology test should cover more than what's the norm if there are known toxins that can be missed. I think this should be treated on the same level as a homicide until they can rule it out. He may have just had a heart attack, and he may have been murdered by one of the radical terrorist branches associated with Obama. Those radicals aren't going to give up easy and fair, and you can't put anything past them. I honestly don't see Obama going peacefully. They have the radical in Obama that most didn't believe could be elected yet, and when he a has literal terrorist backing him you have to expect anything. They will cheat in the election on scale we haven't seen before because they aren't going to let him lose, and just leave peacefully without doing everything possible to stay in power.

I had been following Andrew's twitter feed for a short while and kept saying to myself, "I need to read his book..." I downloaded the Kindle version last night ($5 more than it was just a week ago) and stayed up until 3 am reading it. His "epiphany" pretty much mimics my own, except his first revelation came with the Clarence Thomas hearings.

My first inkling that something wasn't quite right was when Monica Lewinsky was being excoriated as a "dangerous, unstable stalker." Something just clicked in my brain at the moment I heard that coming from the media. "Really? A stalker? A stalker? With all the secret service and security around the man, they can't keep a 21-year-old sorority girl with a crush from stalking him?" For me, that was the first peek behind the Wizard's curtain.

We're the same age and I really wish I could have met him. Would have loved to sit down and dissect Robert Smith's lyrics or critiqued John Doe's performance in "Roadhouse" over a few beers.
