Poisoning of coroner revives interest in Andrew Breitbart's (1969-2012) demise and legacy

Conservative new-media journalist and publisher Mr. Andrew Breitbart dropped dead on an L.A. street on March 1st, 2012 under controversial circumstances.  Weeks earlier, he had announced that he would be revealing a videotape which would incriminate Pres. Barack Obama.  "[We] are going to vet [Obama] from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008," Breitbart said at a CPAC gathering last month.

At the year-end 2012 TV memorials of notable passings, the mainstream press mostly omitted Andrew Breitbart's, though he was publisher of several significant news sites under Breitbart.com.  

Here is an excerpt of remarks about political correctness squelching criticism which he gave at New Media Expo / BlogWorld in the summer of 2011.

"In No Answers in Death of Technician Linked to Andrew Breitbart" in The Daily Beast
Nov 30, 2012, Christine Pellisek re-vives suspicions of Mr. Breitbart having been killed.
According to early reports, Michael Cormier was ‘seemingly healthy,’ yet ‘suddenly stricken’ with a fatal condition—just like Andrew Breitbart,” read a post on Infowars.com.

The blogs were already speculating that Breitbart—who had announced shortly before his death that he had acquired deeply damaging video footage of President Obama—had been assassinated by the president or his supporters. When Cormier died on the day the coroner’s office announced Breitbart’s cause of death as a heart attack, the right-wing conspiracy theories became more heated. Infowars asked, “Was Cormier targeted because he knew something” about Breitbart’s death which contradicted the official findings? 
Last Monday, the coroner’s office released its findings on Cormier’s official cause of death: he was indeed killed by “extremely high amounts of arsenic in his system,” said Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter. “He had a history of heart problems, but it was the arsenic that killed him.”

Hurricane Sandy aftermath reveals natures of Obama, Islamists, & Zionists beyond lapdog-media's narrative

Donna VanZant (r), hugged by Obama in pre-election Hurricane Sandy visit,
complains he abandoned her after her photo helped him win re-election
The significance of candidate Barack Obama comforting victims of Hurricane Sandy was an unexpected boon to his campaign which I don't seem to be noticing in post-election analyses. Despite President Obama’s pledge of the full support of the federal government, many hard-hit victims of the Oct. 29th storm had not received help by mid-December.  The victims have had to deal with red-tape the president said would not be tolerated. Victim, Donna Vanzant, whom Obama hugged before cameras, charges  Obama as having exploited her for his campaign, and has not delivered.

Obama’s Broken Promises to Sandy Victims  
Sandy victims still struggling to find warm housing" - 
Washington Free Beacon, Dec 10, 2012
"Six weeks after Sandy hit the New Jersey and New York coast, residents are still struggling and in desperate need of shelter. ... In the Red Hook community of Brooklyn, N.Y., many residents are still living in their unheated, powerless homes in freezing temperatures. Help from the government for residents has not come.

One victim from the Midland Beach section of Staten Island is living out of his car, going from one house to another each day in search of a warm bed. Dozens of residents are living in their sewer-flooded homes without heat or power in Gerritsen Beach.

Thousands living in hotels courtesy of FEMA are about to lose their rooms. Hotel stays for victims are set to expire on Dec. 13. That would force tens of thousands into the cold, which could prove a public relations disaster for the Obama administration and FEMA.

“Some people are camping in their homes,” said Kirby Desmarais, volunteer coordinator for Red Hook Volunteers, a group affiliated with the Red Hook Coalition. Desmarais did not have an exact number of those in Red Hook who are living in homes without power or heat in freezing temperatures. But she said it is “a lot.”

Red Hook, located a few blocks from New York Harbor and the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, was hit hard. The harbor flooded homes and damaged residents’ furnaces and basement electrical boxes. Many residences remain in the dark.

When asked how well the government is responding to the crisis, Desmarais said that it is a “hard question to answer. … We had no help for 12 days. The Red Cross and the National Guard, they came too late to help.”  

Would the media be hiding matters of the government's failures in implementing campaign-promised aid without red-tape if George Bush were still president?  As Obama won, the mainstream media protecting him instead advanced feel-good stories of Secret Santa handing out money. They promoted celebrity fundraising concerts with Obama campaigners Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bonjovi.  The mainstream media advanced Obama's narrative by under-reporting stories about his unfulfilled promises of  disaster-aid follow-up, just as they under-reported stories pertaining to Israeli humanitarian efforts to aid victims - and Islamists' glee in the damage to America- as a step towards its conquest by Islam.

Muslim Clerics: Sandy is Divine Punishment, Israel National News, 11/2/12
Salman al-Audah blames Sandy on Americans not accepting
Islam while his rich country, Saudi Arabia, sent US no aid
Prominent Saudi Arabian cleric Salman al-Audah said the storm, which killed more than 140 people, was a wake-up call for Americans to convert to Islam.
"To all those who pray that Hurricane Sandy will bring disaster, I quote the words of the Prophet [Muhammad about] the idolaters in Mecca: 'I hope that [Allah] produces from their loins [sons] who worship Him [i.e., who become Muslims],'" he wrote, according to remarks translated by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
Another Saudi cleric, Nasser Al-'Omar, likewise regarded the storm as divine punishment, and even issued a fatwa stating that the Muslims must be glad and thank Allah for it.
"We must rejoice at anything that harms these arrogant and tyrannical oppressors," MEMRI quoted him as having said.

One week after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo rejected a formal offer by Israel to assist in emergency disaster relief, other authorities in New York State formally asked Israel for "all aid and or assistance."

Obama ups anti-Zionist foreign policy - to the bewilderment of his pro-Israel voters

Barack Obama and Defense Secy candiate Sen. Chuck Hagel
Since Obama's re-election to the presidency last month, many people concerned about global jihad movement's growth have felt trepidation. Publishing on her blog, Israel's Caroline Glick has called to task both Mr. Obama and those professed "concerned-about-Israel" who voted for him. In just a month, Obama has upped his ante against Israel, both through not deterring the U.N.'s Palestinian recognition vote, and in Obama's appointing anti-Zionist candidates, Susan Rice and Chuck Hagel, for cabinet secretary posts. Ms. Glick also calls to task those surprised that they re-elected this agenda.
Many in the American Jewish community are aghast to discover that President Obama is planning to appoint former Senator Chuck Hagel to serve as Defense Secretary. If you want the skinny on how Hagel has come to be known as one of the few ferociously anti-Israel senators in the past generation, Carl from Jerusalem at Israel Matzav provides it. ... 
Obama enabled the Palestinians to get their non-member state status at the UN by failing to threaten to cut off US funding to the UN in retaliation for such a vote.
Both Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush issued such threats during their tenures in office and so prevented the motion from coming to a vote. Given that the Palestinians have had an automatic majority in the General Assembly since at least 1975, the only reason their status was only upgraded in 2012 is because until then, either the PLO didn’t feel like raising the issue or the US threatened to cut off its financial support to the UN if such a motion passed. This year PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas said he wanted to have a vote and Obama responded by not issuing a threat to cut off UN funding. So the Palestinians got their vote and, as expected, it passed overwhelmingly. 
Seeing the upgrade as a Palestinian move is a mistake. It was a joint Palestinian-American move.
