A coward? Please explain how committing yourself to prosecution, and an inevitable lengthy prison time is cowardly. Not to mention throwing away a $200k job and a hot ballerina.

Delusions of grandeur? I'm sure he'll be worshipped by the masses while he rots in jail.

winterbraid: tbeatty: Was his bi story about how unsafe his car was when it was around trees while going 100mph?   Because if it was, he nailed it.  "The airbags.  They do nothing."

/He probably was thinking the cops onlyhad 2 digit radars and if he went to 100, he'd go off it.  .  Maybe he was just speeding, saw a cop and thought the tree would slow him down a bit.

//More likely he was a epressed liberal worried about social injustice he couldn't fix and how his liberal g/f got blowed up bringing social justice to Iraq and became a depressed, liberal alcoholic.  Like Ted Kennedy but without the women.

see, this is why you're supposed to warm up and stretch first. this poor bastard pulled a troll muscle mid-sentence.

/ice it down

Was it too much funny for one post?  "And coming up:  retard reporter wraparound - film and fire at 11"  But think of the how tight McChrystal and God must be.  McC: "About those stories yoiu wrote: Go DIAF."  And it happened.

Just for my own curiosity about how to interpret your post, how do you see Vince Foster's death?

He killed himself, if memory serves, but that's not the point, is it? The GOP will use the death of this reporter to try to smear Obama, and Democrats in general, in 2014, 2016 and beyond. Why? Because it worked against the Clinton's to some degree years ago. The GOP is good at getting their base riled up with conspiracy tales, and this will be one they use, you can count on that.

heinrich66: Now that people today seem actually willing to entertain that the Gov't has bad people in it who might kill people if the stakes are high enough (or if they can simply get away with it), I wonder what the public reaction is going to be in November on the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy killing.

As a former cop, i'm going to guess excessive speed, possibly texting at the same time led to the crash.

If your brakes dont work and your accelerator is farked, I have one simple question that seems to elude these people every time:

How farking hard is it to shift into neutral and cut the engine off?
 
2013-06-22 09:11:52 AM
Here's my theory and I'm sticking to it:

He was probably being followed, either by the government or possibly being tailed by some other journalist hoping to get a scoop. Then this guy decided to try to expose these people following him and decided to start speeding around to so the normal cops would get evolved. Being a douche he didn't think his cunning plan all the way through and smacked into a tree.

He was dead as soon as he passed through the Melrose intersection. Steering column through the chest. You could say he was already dead at the wheel by the time the car hit the tree.

Nemo's Brother: Good old Obama. This shouldn't be a surprise. Obama had already declared the power to kill US citizens without a warrant.


Karl Rove's chief IT consultant, Mike Connell-who was facing subpoena in connection with 2004 Presidential election fraud in Ohio-mysteriously died in a private plane crash in 2008.  Connell was allegedly the central figure in a longstanding plot to electronically flip votes to Republicans.
In July 2008, Connell was named as a key witness in the case known as King Lincoln Bronzeville Neighborhood Association v. Blackwell, which was filed against Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth J. Blackwell on August 31, 2006 by Columbus attorneys Clifford Arnebeck and Robert Fitrakis. It initially charged Blackwell with racially discriminatory practices-including the selective purging of voters from the election rolls and the unequal allocation of voting machines to various districts-and asked for measures to be taken to prevent similar problems during the November 2006 election.
On October 9, 2006, an amended complaint added charges of various forms of ballot rigging as also having the effect of "depriving the plaintiffs of their voting rights, including the right to have their votes successfully cast without intimidation, dilution, cancellation or reversal by voting machine or ballot tampering." A motion to dismiss the case as moot was filed following the November 2006 election, but it was instead stayed to allow for settlement discussions.
The case took on fresh momentum in July 2008 when Arnebeck announced that he was filing to "lift the stay in the case and proceed with targeted discovery in order to help protect the integrity of the 2008 election." The new filing was inspired in part by the coming forward as a whistleblower of GOP IT security expert Stephen Spoonamore, who said he was prepared to testify to the plausibility of electronic vote-rigging having been carried out in 2004. The stay was lifted September 19, 2008 and Connell was served a subpoena on September 22.
Spoonamore, a conservative Republican who works for big banks, international governments, and the Secret Service as an expert in the detection of computer fraud, found evidence that Karl Rove, with the help of Mike Connell and his company GovTech Solutions, electronically stole the Ohio 2004 election for Bush.
Spoonamore testified that the "vote tabulation system [which Connell designed] allowed the introduction of an additional single computer between computer A and computer B." This is called a "man in the middle" attack. According to Spoonamore, "This centralized collection of all incoming statewide tabulations would make it easy for a single operator, or a preprogrammed 'force balancing computer' to change the results in any way desired by the team controlling the Computer C." Spoonamore further testified that the only purpose for such man in the middle architecture is to commit crime.
Despite Connell's efforts to quash his subpoena to testify, he was ordered to appear for a two-hour, closed-door deposition on November 3, 2008, just eighteen hours before the 2008 national election. Though Connell had expressed willingness to testify, he was reticent after receiving threats from Rove.
Arnebeck presents evidence that Karl Rove threatened Connell, cautioning that if Connell didn't "take the fall" for election fraud in Ohio, Connell would face prosecution for supposed lobby law violations.  After this threat, Arnebeck sent letters to the Department of Justice, as well as messages to high-ranking members of the department, seeking protection for Connell and his family from attempts to intimidate. Despite Connell's elite status as a top-rung Republican consultant for years, whose firm New Media Communications provided IT services for the Bush-Cheney 2004 campaign, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Republican National Committee, and many Republican candidates and campaigns, witness protection requests went unheeded.
Election fraud analyst and author Mark Crispin Miller notes that the timing and circumstances of Connell's death-between deposition and trial-are too suspicious and convenient for Rove and the Bush administration, not to merit a thorough investigation. Arnebeck and Fitrakis intended to both further depose and call Connell to testify as key witness in the federal conspiracy case. Connell was also to be questioned about his key role in the disappearance of thousands of White House-RNC email transactions. These emails are believed likely to have shed light on the White House role in the political firings of US Attorneys, as well as decisions to prosecute former Alabama Democratic Governor Don Siegelman.  Attorneys in the case said that Connell's testimony would likely lead to the subpoenaing and under-oath questioning of Karl Rove.
Connell was an experienced pilot. His plane had been recently serviced. He had been in the nation's capital on still-unknown business before his single engine plane crashed December 22, 2008 on the way home, just three miles short of the runway in Akron, Ohio.  The cause of the crash remains unknown.
Timing of Connell's deposition may have saved the 2008 presidential elections from electronic theft. However, Bev Harris at Black Box Voting notes that man in the middle systems are still in place in Illinois, Colorado, Kentucky, and likely across the nation.

Hastings probably killed himself.

He probably suffered from depression and was a drinker.

As a last hurrah crashed his car into a tree knowing everyone would blame the NSA or government because he as his last phone call claimed...was onto something big, had a big story yadda yadda.

He was a professional liar. Just look at the hit piece on Mchrystal.

And you believe that person, why?
Did you notice that he was watering the street after the crash?
Study it out.

There were sparks from the bottom of his car before the crash and multiple explosions after it,

Is this info from the SAME "source"

though. Maybe he was trying to put out the fire by going really fast.

sparks....like when the subframe or sway bar or oil pan comes in contact with the road after going over a bump or dip in the road because the car is going too fast?

Explosions like when tires full of compressed air fail and all that air is no longer contained by the rubber tire?

The guy saw those sparks under the car while he was driving so he drove faster to put out the fire?
Or does the Mercedes have a camera that you can see under the car while you are driving?

If you want to send a message why not take him out with a Linux powered fire and forget sniper rifle or some Polonium tea?

You can be subtle and send a message at the same time by using ways that seem like legitimate accidents.

If this guy had a heart attack like Brietbart the progressive/libs would still think it was a Cheney assassination squad that did him in.

All of this just reminds me of Breitbart's death. He was about to expose Obama and tell the truth!!!!!! Except he had a heart attack and the "truth" he was about to tell turned out to be a non-story. Same thing here. Maybe someone who has followed this more can give me an answer but what was he doing speeding in Beverly Hills at 4am? My bet is drugs or alcohol are involved. If the FBI really wanted to off the guy, they would've been much more subtle about it.

I don't think there's really any evidence that this was an assassination, but I don't find it surprising that so many would jump to that conclusion considering how quick our gov has been lately to persecute and prosecute reporters who write stories they aren't happy with, and of course the whole drone "we can kill anybody we want, at any time, without a conviction or any evidence" program. People will belief conspiracies even when the powers that be are on their best behavior; when every day seems to bring with it a new, credible, story of government over-reach or sleazy collusion between the wealthy and authority, it's no surprise that this natural human affection for stories gets kicked into over-drive.

Heron: I don't think there's really any evidence that this was an assassination, but neither do I find it surprising that so many would jump to that conclusion considering how quick our gov has been lately to persecute and prosecute reporters who write stories they aren't happy with, and of course the whole drone "we can kill anybody we want, at any time, without a conviction or any evidence" program. People will believe conspiracies even when the powers that be are on their best behavior; when every day seems to bring with it a new, credible, story of government over-reach or sleazy collusion between the wealthy and authority, it's no surprise that this natural human affection for stories gets kicked into over-drive.


FTFM

Egalitarian: sometimes stupid crap happens with no conspiracy whatsoever.

I may be biased because I have to watch Burn Notice all the time so I dismiss 100% of what goes on on that show -- the explosions, assassinations and ridiculous spy commentary, all of it.


I know I shouldn't ask but, Why do you have to watch burn notice all the time?
