Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Breitbart, Obits, and Coincidence

There is much speculation about the death of Andrew Breitbart. Why? Because of the piss poor way the news was broken to the American people. The words "death at 43" and "natural causes" do not go together in anyone's world. Yes, I have known people who dropped dead at age 39 of a sudden heart attack or stroke, but they don't put natural causes in the obit. As an interesting side note, this is what an obituary used to look like in this country:

Found Dead
Mrs. Ritter, Wife of Stephen N. Ritter
Found Dead in Her Bed at Her Home North of St. Louisville-Heart Trouble the Cause
St. Louisville, March 7 -- Mrs. Catherine Ritter, wife of Mr. Stephen N. Ritter was found lying dead in her bed at her home one mile north of this place, at an early hour this morning. Yesterday she did a big washing and was, apparently, in the enjoyment of the best of health. Heart disease is supposed to have been the cause of her death.
The deceased was aged 46 years, and was a woman who was universally respected by all who knew her. Ever ready to respond to the call of sickness or distress, she had won a warm place in the hearts of all her neighbors, and by them her many deeds of kindness will be remembered.
Four children, two married daughters and two sons, the youngest of whom is only eight years of age, besides the bereaved husband survive to mourn her death.
via the March 6, 1899 edition of the Newark Daily Advocate

In the future we're heading into obituaries will just say, "the following numbers have been deactivated".

Notice how the character of the person was described, how her death was discovered, etc. The person was young, but they explained the unexpected nature by heart disease, which has always been a silent killer.

What makes Andrew Breitbart different than Catherine Ritter of Newark is that he said that he was going to release video unflattering to Obama, paid actor for the Fed Cartel. And he boasted he was going to release it March 1. Well, he only lived 19 minutes into March 1, which makes anyone except the most Pollyanna of us suspicious to say the least. Even Jerome Corsi, noted scholar, former holder of extreme security clearance, has said that he thinks its fishy too. He said that Breitbart had just been talking to Sheriff Joe who has been seriously looking into Obama's eligibility. Not to mention how many hornet nests the man stirred up, especially those unions. That's why the coroner says they'll be going over it with a fine tooth comb.

Elsewhere, noted presidential impressionist Steve Bridges died March 3 at age 48. The cause of death is unknown at this time. What is known is that his work was not well taken at the Oval Office these days.

Well, that's my thoughts so far on this. Let's not let each other "disappear" with a shrug, but be watching out for each other. Liberty lovers are never suicidal, by the way...


  1. Well, I don't know if I'd say "even" Jerome Corsi thinks it's fishy, like he wouldn't be expected to. He's one of the few with the guts to say things like that. I think it's definitely fishy, and I think we'll never hear anything other than "natural causes" because no one wants to follow "conspiracy" theories, even when they make perfect sense. It's odd how we all seem to think that assassinations can't possibly happen in America unless it's done with a bullet in broad daylight. I guess because our political class are just so honest and wonderfully decent in their intentions that they couldn't possibly do these things.

    1. Well, I name-dropped Dr. Corsi because he's so smart and sophisticated. What gets me is that every single assassin in American history was "crazy". You would think that at least one of them would have had a rational plan for killing Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, JFK, RFK, MLK, etc. But every one of them was "crazy". sure.

      Break the normalcy bias, people!

  2. I have to admit that in the video of Breitbart at CPAC, he looked a lot older than 43. The man didn't ever rest.
