The Big sites aren’t loading for me either. I think I heard they were in the process of revamping them all when Andrew died. Might be happening now.

I think they are set for a major over haul very soon anyway. Usually sites go down while that is happening .

According to a post on Twitter, there’s some sort of switchover and merging going on with Breitbart’s site.

Aren’t they working on a big site makeover that AB may have decribed as Drudge 2.0? Maybe that caused a momentary glitch that you glimpsed.

I can’t get into any of the sites at the top of Breitbart.com.

Click Big Government and it goes right back to his main page.

I looked into it and got “link is broken.”

Andrew

Well, he was no summer soldier
Where he fought was hard and cold
His manner? …less than gentle
His words were always bold

Andrew was a leader
And we happily played the chorus
When something needed saying
We let Andrew say it for us

Well, the contest isn’t over
And the system still is broken
So in honor of his mem’ry
We all need to be outspoken

When the moment calls you
Never turn your back and run
Gladly face the challenge
It’s what Andrew would have done

For he was no summer soldier
And the battles never cease
With the others who defend us
Let us pray he rests in peace.

Tarzana Joe

THey are relaunching the new Breitbart site today; it was supposed to happen at 1 pm, but looks like it’s delayed. This relaunch is what Andrew meant by “Wait until they see what happens March 1st.”

I believe that today was supposed to be a big relaunch of the Bigs. I can’t get on anything but the Breitbart main page. The Hollywood, Peace, Government and Journalism are not available.

If they are a national security threat they can be destroyed. I believe that is in Obama’s NDAA. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012 was signed into United States law on December 31, 2011 by President Barack Obama.

Dana Loesch said to watch the Bigs on Monday. Something big is coming that progressives aren’t going to like.

That was how she ended her show other than to say the fight goes on.

You can try www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com to see if a site is down or not (of course if you are down or it is down, then I don’t know what to say).

I heard it said on Thursday:

If the tapes of Obama come out as planned, Andrew Brietbart died of a heart attack. If they don’t , then he was murdered.....

Can’t seem to shake the feeling that the poster was right - should be an interesting few days.

I was thinking that what is coming on Monday may be those tapes. But I am not certain of that.

It should be interesting.

I still can’t believe Breitbart is dead.

I know that he’s gone but I still wish that later today the BIGS would pop back up and he’d be sitting in a chair laughing at the grand joke he played on all of us!

She talked about that, but I don’t think this Big thing is just the new site.

I don’t know. I guess we will know tomorrow.

I always liked Tarzana Joe. Thanks for that.

I'm still in shock over Breitbart's death, but "Be Breitbart!" makes more sense to me than sorrow. He can't be replaced, so we have to do his work ourselves.

They were doing some house cleaning...the “Bigs” are now sub-pages of “Breitbart.com”. The first video of the “vetting” of BO is now posted at http://www.breitbart.com/!

Yes the new sites are up but they have ditched Intense Debate for Disqus as the comment engine. Big Mistake - pun intended.

Disqus is adequate for newspaper sites but it’s incapable of handling and delivering the volume that the Breitbart sites typically generate. Navigating pages was a pain but nothing compared to having to incessantly click the Load More Comments button.

If we are all Breitbart now then they need to facilitate a better means of communication at their sites.
