Conservative Meteoroid Andrew Breitbart Passes On At Age 43

"How do you save the world, you want to know? Wade into the fire. Don't be afraid to engage in the culture war that we're now waging. And show no fear. I repeat, show no fear. That's how you save the world." ~ Andrew Breitbart

Bill Smith, Editor: A meteor has passed out of view. A meteor is the visible path of a meteoroid that has entered the Earth's atmosphere. In the past few years, I and numerous others were both awed and stunned by the meteor we saw flashing across the political conservative skyline. Yes, we already had the shining stars in the conservative constellation - the steady conservative voices of the past whose light still shines on us even thought the star has ceased to be. And we have the present mature voices of the "great one," "elrusbo," and many others.

But, wow! We were stunned by the former liberal convert who had become a meteoroid leaving a bright visible path across the conservative horizon. Andrew Brietbart, was to many cool, hip, bold, and braggadocios. He had a way of saying things that shocked and boldly challenged people on the left and the right. He was a concert from liberalism and did not hide his light under a basket. He was Mr. Hollywood sharing his rage and insights into the progressive liberal mindset.

In 2009, when Academy Award Winner Jon Voight expressed his conservative opinion on politics and was then maligned by the extreme left and even those considered to be communists as having used "hate speech" against President Obama, the owner and publisher of Big Government, Andrew Breitbart penned the following "The left will flail as they attempt to marginalize him and diminish his stellar reputation and award-winning career. His analysis of how President Obama got elected will eventually be the accepted truth once sober and dispassionate journalists re-enter the mainstream media. I predict there will be more 'Jon Voights' in the next election cycle, thanks to his courageous, trailblazing spirit."

Well, on reflection, one of those "Jon Voights" with "courageous, trailblazing spirit" was Andrew Breitbart. In the same year, he broke the ACORN scandal and faced lawsuits which failed as the truth about ACORN was exposed.

Forbes reported that Andrew Brietbart died of this morning just after midnight. Breitbart collapsed while walking near his home. A neighbor saw him fall and called paramedics, and his father in law, Orson Bean, stated that Breitbart had suffered from heart problems in the past. Forbes further reports:
He . .. joined Matt Drudge in producing the powerful Drudge Report back in the 1990s. He later met Arianna Huffington and helped her launch her eponymous website.

He did far more than just link to the work of others, however. His controversial investigations of Rep. Anthony Weiner and Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod led both to resign. . . .
Andrew Breitbart founded,, and He was described by Maggie Thornton in her tribute today as a "baldly straight-talking conservative warrior."

Andrew rising star of influence made him a much sought after speaker. And while many of now recall his words and often crazy antics which makes us smile and his passionate defense of conservatives attacked by the left, we must forget he was also a father and and husband.

Having been at several events in the last three years at which Andrew attended and spoke, I noted that he sometimes brought one of his children with him. In 2011, Andrew attended the the Smart Girl Summit in St. Louis, Missouri. Instead of opting for some 5 star hotel away from the convention, Andrew liked being where the action was at for events. Many of us recall his willingness to address even Occupy groups. Well on this same weekend, the Cardinals were playing at home which means rooms are usually sold out. Somehow his room reservation at the event hotel was mistakenly cancelled. When my wife and I arrived for the summit, I noted Andrew who was taller than everyone around him was waiting in very long line hoping in hopes to get a room.

I waded through the line to ask why he was in this long line. He laughed and shared what had happened and then introduced his son. During the entire event, even when surrounded by a crowds, Andrew was always aware of where his son was. Therefore in closing, let us remember the man and not the meteoroid.

Andrew Breitbart was born February 1, 1969 in Los Angeles, California. He was the adopted son of Gerald and Arlene Breitbart. He lived his life there and died today March 1, 2012 in the city of his birth. He was a father of four and the husband of Susannah.  Our prayers are for his family, friends, and those who feel his absence. We were privileged to have met and to have been encouraged and challenged by Andrew's unwillingness to concede the loss of America to progressive socialists. He died as he lived, loving the United States America.

The Passing of a Soldier

I know several of you got this poem today from Wally Kinney, however I want to offer this poem today to Andrew Breitbart. I don't know if Andrew served in the Armed Forces but Andrew was a soldier in our fight to save and restore America to it rightful place of leadership and respect in the World. Andrew was a true Hero of American Exceptionalism.
In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

(Author Unknown)

He was getting
old and paunchy
And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes, every one.

And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew whereof he spoke.

But we'll hear his tales no longer,
For old Bob has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer
For a Soldier died today.

He won’t be mourned by many,
Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on his way;
And the world won't note his passing,
'Tho a Soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young
But the passing of a Soldier
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Someone who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up his life?

The politician's stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Soldier,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever waffling stand?

Or would you want a Soldier--
His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Soldier,
Who would fight until the end?

He was just a common Soldier,
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his like again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor
While he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage
At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:

Although Andrew Breitbart's medical history was certainly predictive of a heart attack, his last interview was with Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had just announced the results of his Cold Case Posse investigation of Mr. Obama's fraudulent, forged birth documents and Selective Service registration. That final contact provides probable cause to investigate whether he was assassinated before he could broadcast that interview. I hope and pray that before he died, he passed along that interview to Sean Hannity, even though Sean Hannity has been gagged about the Obama Constitutional ineligibility issue ever since his first mention of it.

Pastor James David Manning insists on an impartial investigation of Andrew Breitbart's death to search out possible foul play, rather than just to accept without question his heart trouble as the cause of his death. There would certainly be a motive for murder; is not suspicion of murder reasonable and an investigation justifiable?

May Andrew Breitbart indeed rest in peace. But his blood may be crying out from the ground.
Beginning at 13:17, Pastor James David Manning said,

If Breitbart has been whacked, we shouldn't allow it! And we should not rest until we have determined the absolute truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the stomp-down truth. We should not rest! If they have whacked him...

If we, one of us were whacked, Breitbart would risk his life, limb, and everything that he is, to discover the truth, and he would use tactics that he has been known to use so proficiently to gather that truth. If one of us were whacked, Breitbart would come to our aid! He would investigate! And we need to come to the aid of Andrew Breitbart, one and all!

And those of you who have never made any public statements or never supported in any way the removal of this fraudulent, and the exposure of this fraudulent Barack Obama, this radical, this Mus|im...

We should not allow the death of Andrew Breitbart to go unchallenged!

We allowed Terry Lakin to be prosecuted, court martialed, and sent to a dungeon in Fort Leavenworth.
We allowed Walter Francis Fitzpatrick to be beaten and sent to a dungeon in Monroe County.
We've allowed Sgt. Moran to be drugged and medicated and drummed out of the Air Force.
We've allowed this, but enough is enough! Enough is enough! We will not stand by now that they've gone to murder!

My friends, I'm calling on you everywhere, one and all, one and all, that we should not allow the death of our colleague to go uninvestigated!
Rise up, America. Rise up, and unite. And demand that we get the truth about Andrew Breitbart and why he's left us so suddenly.
And I'm convinced that we're gonna find that there's been foul play.
He would do it for you; I'm going to do it for him.

I'm James David Manning... and don't you ever forget it! Don't you ever forget it!
I'm a servant of the most high God! Don't you ever forget it!
