A Warrior Has Fallen.

Submitted by on March 1, 2012 – 11:34 am EST23 Comments

Andrew Breitbart was a brave warrior, great guy and committed family man. I met Andrew a few times, most recently at CPAC, and he was a man totally dedicated to the cause. He was absolutely looking forward to all the things he had planned for this year and I hope that his “Big” entities continue to grow and build on his legacy.

“Conservative media publisher and activist Andrew Breitbart, who was behind investigations that led to the resignations of former Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York and former U.S. Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod, has died in Los Angeles. He was 43.

Breitbart’s website, bigjournalism.com, announced Thursday he died of natural causes in Los Angeles. His death was confirmed by breitbart.com editor-in-chief Joel Pollak, who said he was at the hospital, and by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.

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

Someone saw him fall and called paramedics, who tried to revive him. They rushed him to the emergency room at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, Bean said.

Breitbart had suffered heart problems a year earlier, but Bean said he could not pinpoint what happened.

On behalf of the team at New Zeal, my thoughts go out to his wife and young family and I hope that our readers support any memorial fund that may be set up for them.

Andrew, we will pick up and continue where you left off, the battle is far from over in this vital year.

    Clap! Clap! Clap! Brave Warrior? I beg to differ! he was nothing but a man who lived to spew vile hate. What this guy did to Sherrod was reckless, irresponsible and EVIL. Let me come to YOUR job, tape some things you say and then re-edit them to sound bad so you can get fired. The guy was no hero, he is the EPITOME of everything wrong in modern-day “journalism”, whether liberal or conservative. I know he is not the only one. I know it is not just because he was conservative and I know there are liberals out the pulling the same crap. NONE of them are worthy of being remembered for their trash.

      Andrew would love your hate. He would have retweeted it on Twitter. As Jonah Goldberg said earlier today. “When the hate tweets came in, it was Andrew’s “wheaties” to retweet them. He knew that when they attacked it was right over the target. Just keep hating we’ll repeat them for Andrew.

    • Tamminator says:

      Only a moronic lefty would call the truth “vile hate”.
      Go back to the Democratic Underground, you disgusting bitch.

      There are four children and a wife who are grieving today.

    • heidi says:

      To Jean A. I am so amazed that someone could spew such hate.

    • McKay says:

      Jean, that was your Obama administration that panicked and hit the fire button before verifying their facts. Ready, fire, AIM has been there motto.

      REVEALED: President Obama is a lucky man –
      By Chief editor Korir.
      Now, President Obama has announced his intention to run for a second term despite a questionable citizenship.
      The man born in Mombasa has managed to run the White House well and
      wants another term. Obama has decided not to reveal his citizenship
      because if he does, he will be taken to court for having ruled a country
      against the constitution which states that a president must be a
      citizen by birth.Sources disclose to API that President Obama will write a very
      interesting biography revealing his birthplace, but only when he is no
      longer the President. One thing he should not forget, however, is the
      fact that he can still be prosecuted after leaving office.
      The former Mombasa Imam who gave Obama’s mother the birth certificate
      after the birth of Barack Hussein Obama is now living in the UK after
      seeking for asylum in 2008 when the subject of Obama’s citizenship was
      in top gear. The Imam fled Mombasa to Britain where he decided to remain
      for his own safety. The former Imam tells API that he will soon hold a
      press conference on the issue.

    My husband just said that Andrew was “the Paul Revere of our time.” So many brave individuals fighting for our country but none had the tenacity and fortitude, and courage of Andrew Breitbart. His straightforward reporting and taking the media to task was what all freedom loving citizens craved for. It is a loss to all of us who consider freedom a precious gift. Thank you Andrew for the work you did on behalf of me, my family, my grandchildren’s future and for our country. You will not be forgotten. You may have become the plumbline of new media searching for truth.

  • patricia radovich says:

    this is just tragic. who can fill this vast void? andrew will be sorely missed.

  • Harry says:

    This is a suspicious death of a man with political enemies in the highest of places: the White House. Breitbart recently claimed he would soon provide damning video of Obama’s college days. Now he collapses in the middle of the night and dies. Somebody saw him fall, and somebody may have killed him. Others in disfavor with Obama have also died conveniently.

    Sure, it’s too soon to reach conclusions, and we may never know the truth, but let us not be unaware.

  • crookedwren says:

    We will miss him sorely. Hard to find someone with so much courage. I am blasted with grief over our loss.

  • Marco says:

    RIP Andrew. Your family is in my prayers.

    May God bless you Andrew. They are about to take another warrior.

    Iranian Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been charged,
    convicted and sentenced to death for apostasy – becoming a Christian.
    When Iranian officials demanded that he recant his faith in Jesus Christ
    or die, he responded, “I cannot.” He has been illegally imprisoned and separated from his wife and two boys since 2009. We are fighting to save his life and win his freedom. We need your voice in this fight; please lend us your voice for Pastor Youcef today.
    Though we still believe that his execution has been ordered, it is clear he is still alive today because of renewed international pressure on Iran – immense pressure from people worldwide
    raising their voices, demanding that his life be spared. In less than one week, more than 145,000 people have signed our petition calling for Pastor Youcef’s release.
    We need to keep that pressure on. Will you join us in being a voice
    for him by allowing us to tweet once a day about Pastor Youcef through your twitter account . .see full article on Canadian Free Press.
    Pray for this man. AND re-tweet for him.

    Contrary to popular belief having an autopsy conducted by the Medical Examiner will not uncover a well-planned murder. The Medical Examiner Office is a political office and it has a predetermined schedule of who is on duty each day. With a little planning you can murder someone on a certain date in a given jurisdiction assuring your favorite Forensic Pathologist will carry-out the autopsy.

    You kill your victim in such a way that it looks like a natural death, no guns or blood. The Medical Examiner who carries out the autopsy should be someone upon whom you can apply political pressure, if needed. His medical conclusions must be plausible and “heart attack” is the best vague cause of death.

    Switching the tissues samples may be necessary.

    Here is how it works. Say you choose a lethal poison to kill the “trouble maker”. The substance or its effects will be evident in the liver, which filters out harmful stuff. Also, many poisons target the heart tissue which does not regrow or regenerate. Tissue samples from major organs will be taken and sent for staining and fixing. This is when you have one of your “Goons” exchange the victims tissue samples for that of someone who really did die of a heart attack.

    Administering the poison at low does will cause the victim to start having heart problems. This is advantageous because you want him to see a doctor so there is a paper trail of heart problems before the final big lethal dose.

    Heavy metals work well, but they are old school and detectable. With the advances in molecular biology creating substances that kill is limitless. Deadly anti-bodies, proteins, radioactive elements and toxins can be grown, altered or concentrated in a lab and administered via food, drink, furniture, aerosols, creams and projectiles or carried by insects or animals.

    So if a “trouble maker” lives in an area controlled by Marxist Revolutionaries he can dispensed with. It is a realm in which people are murdered slowly, a forensic examination is conducted and it is concluded they died of well documented “natural causes” just like in totalitarian countries.

    Toxicology tests drugs, alcohol and meds, no one looks for poisons. That occurs on television. To look for a poison, there has to be a testing method developed to find that poison, which is rare. Medical Examiners fill out a sheet requesting the type of tests they need run. Most cost about $400.00 each. The doctor can’t start asking for weird tests which may not exist, searching for the thousands of possible deadly known substances, let alone the unknown recently developed tools of assassination.

    To truly rule out murder one must conduct a private autopsy, but people who do this are rare and the labs they rely upon are few in number. Ensuring a proper chain of evidence through these very few labs is difficult, particularly when the “trouble maker” was an enemy of the state.

    Do you think this is paranoia? Like saying someone was killed with a poison shooting umbrella gun.
