Michael Savage: Was Breitbart Assassinated?
World Net Daily ^ | 3-1-12

Posted on 03/01/2012 10:30:19 PM PST by ReformationFan

Noting that the cause of Andrew Breitbart’s unexpected death yesterday was being examined by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office, talk-radio host Michael Savage raised the question of whether the conservative media powerhouse – who recently announced he had videos that could politically damage President Obama – was murdered.

On his top-rated show today, Savage played an audio clip of Breitbart telling an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington last month that he had obtained videos that shed light on Obama’s ties to radicals in the early 1980s who helped propel him to the presidency.

“Maybe my overly active imagination kicked into overdrive,” Savage told his listeners of his decision to raise the question. “But you heard what Breitbart said – he has videos … we’re going to vet the president.”

Perhaps. He’d write something, and on occasion I’d read it. That’s about the extent of Breitbart in my circle.

I’ve been on FR longer than most, I read it just about daily, I’m a voracious reader elsewhere of articles, I follow the news constantly, I’m retired military, I pastor a mainstream protestant church so keep up with an awful lot, I listen to Rush/Hannity and a few others, and I simply didn’t run across Breitbart that often.

Say what you want, but I don’t see any reason for assassinating him by some “power” group. I can see some leftwing nut murdering him perhaps, but that would be a lone hit job for some obscure reason and not an assassination.

It’s possible that he might have discovered the keys to the universe, and got whacked for figuring it out, but that’s pure tin-foil stuff that would make a great episode of X-Men or Star-Trek.

Is there any connection with Ayers and Andrew’s death.
This happened 41 years to the day that Andrew died, right about the start of March 1.

Is there any connections here to Bill Ayers?

March 1, 1971

A bomb explodes in the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., causing an estimated $300,000 in damage but hurting no one. A group calling itself the “Weather Underground” claimed credit for the bombing, which was done in protest of the ongoing U.S.-supported Laos invasion.

Many people are walking time bombs. How do we know if Andrew acknowledge his health plenty of people ignore the signs of heart disease because they are in denial. I have seen such silly posts on FR about this man. PEOPLE DIE EVERY DAY!!!!

I’m all for ruling out any other cause of death.

I do agree with you on your entire post but especially this sentence. The only object really to the story I have is “assassinated”. I mean that is a bit over the top unless we have more evidence of this.

Charles Bronson (The Mechanic) making Keenan Wynn have a heart attack comes to mind.

I think everyone in the universe, if they didn’t know, now knows he had heart problems.
Otherwise, just because he had a heart condition doesn’t mean he could’ve been poisoned.

I agree -- conspiracy theories rarely pan out. That said, I'm confident that if there is anything even remotely suggestive of this it will be buried deeper than Obama's race shown on his real birth certificate which, it's even clearer now, he has yet to produce.

I remember many years ago listening to G Gordon Liddy on his old radio show,and while discussing the death of J Edgar Hoover with a caller,the G Man said that the Gov possessed drugs which,when applied to a persons household items or toiletries,would produce a heart attack within 72 hrs.

I used to work with a guy who was an extreme Type A personality. He owned a contracting company and he supported my project. He pushed himself to ridiculous limits until he had a heart attack. The doctors told him he needed to cut back on his activity. He relaxed for a few months and then came back with a vengeance. A year later, he had a second heart attack, this one much worse than the first. The doctor now referred to him as a ticking time bomb and said that he would die unexpectedly if he continued his pace. He has, and he’s still alive, though if he keeled over at any point I would be completely unsurprised. He’s only in his late 30’s.

If Breitbart had a history of heart problems, then this could very well be the case. I have a hard time believing the assassination angle as well because of the era we live in. Killing one man isn’t going to get rid of the evidence.

"No. Let’s not get stupid here."<

As "unlikely" as it might be for an active 43 year old to drop dead on an evening stroll, I'd still venture that is the "likely" case here.

Having said that, until that has been confirmed I don't think ruling out any other possibility is particularly wise. Many people, some of them in powerful positions, wanted Breibart dead. The left has always had a propensity for violence, particularly towards those who dare to expose the dark truths about them. While, as I first said, a simple heart attack is probably the "likely" cause, I would also contend that if the left chose to assassinate a media opponent, Breitbart would have "likely" been near, or at the top of their list.

Jeff Kuhner was just on local radio here in Boston and he said the people from MSNBC would come up to Breitbart at the wh press dinner and tell him to his face that they wish he’d drop dead, see post #148 for info on a heart attack gun.

"Killing one man isn’t going to get rid of the evidence."

One need not get rid of the evidence, but merely intimidate those who might do anything with it. Take for example the gross criminality of Fast and Furious. The evidence against Holder is legion, and yet nobody in a position of authority is willing to do anything with it, not out of fear for their life (that we know of), but merely out of the fear of being branded a racist or losing their comfortable income and position.

I sure hope they are on the lookout for 1.52 mm diameter platinum/iridium pellets and umbrellas.

Reports say that he had a history of heart trouble but hadn't seen a doctor in over a year.

My guess in the case of a relatively young individual suffering a sudden death would be that the cause was a cardiac arrhythmia possibly associated with cardiomyopathy. The history of heart trouble comment with no recent doctor's follow up visits makes me suspicious that some further testing or treatment was recommended but not done.

By the way, sorry for the double post. I really liked AB’s style, especially when he had evidence via tapes. The way he’d release them a little at a time. He’d wait for the negative responses, denials, and excuses to what he had evidence of and then release a little more until leading to the ‘grand finale’. Quite a style. I was looking forward to him releasing the Obama tapes. Others are taking up the torch to release them, but it would have been better with AB at the reigns.

Although he was still young, I think our bodies can give out during constant pressure. We see this in young athletes and even hear about kids collapsing during sports. But, I’d still feel better with a full autopsy.

Why would he be assassinated? I barely knew of him. Rush has a huge impact and I could see that, but Breitbart had minimal impact.

Wow, you barley knew of him yet you know he had minimal impact. Just because you didn't know of him does not mean the man didn't have impact - liberals hated him - hated him to the point where they'd tell him to his face that they wish he'd drop dead. You need to get out more.

I’m not accepting of anything here. I am glad the coroner is going to institute an autopsy, and have suggested the family should get an independent assessment in addition to that.

While it is true none of us had heard of it before this, Andrew’s father in law (comedian Orson Bean) is the person who said he had a heart problem.

Here’s a quote:

Breitbart was walking near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight Thursday when he collapsed, his father-in-law Orson Bean said.

Someone saw him fall and called paramedics, who tried to revive him. They rushed him to the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center, Bean said. Breitbart had suffered heart problems a year earlier, but Bean said he could not pinpoint what happened.

BTW: not trying to be argumentative here - these are just the facts as I know them at this point

Michael Savage: Was Breitbart Assassinated?

Inquiring tinfoil hats want to know! Actually I wouldn't put it past this administration, but if that is the case it was probably Soros who ordered the hit.
