Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing for Tuesday, Mar 6, 2012

Welcome to this edition of Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing!

What is WIFLI?
You may be wondering what the acronym "WIFLI" means. I started out by calling these issues the Time 2 Escape Daily, but that didn't work out very well. I quickly learned that putting these issues together on a daily basis was a task I was unable to accomplish. To replace "Daily" in the title, I coined the acronym WIFLI, which literally means "When I Feel Like It." Putting together a post on this blog WIFLI works much better for my schedule, and for the higher quality of each issue that is eventually published!

Please excuse me if I don't blush when I gush about this great edition of the Time 2 Escape WIFLI Briefing, for it is an excellent representation of the main theme of the stories and columns featured below.  (And, remember, it is Super Tuesday.... Very fitting!)

When our highly esteemed colleague and patriot Andrew Breitbart suddenly passed away, it was definitely a shock for many of us that knew him or were aware of his work. As Joseph Farah states, when somebody that is only 43 years of age with a wife and four children suddenly passes, "It’s just not right."

The total weirdness of the sudden, unexpected death of such a luminary that has found and brandished the weapon of mass destruction - the truth - against the colossal corruption going on in our society and politics seems to be a lot more than some people want to deal with. As Barbara Simpson writes, "Despite speculation there might have been foul play because of his new investigation of Barack Obama’s college days – which is not out of the realm of possibility...", the truth is, we still have the sorrow and grief for his family to deal with.

But sure enough, there are those out there that believe that Andrew's death was caused by the dark forces of evil wishing to prevent more revelations from becoming public. And though that is a topic that will be debated for many years, that isn't really what this particular post is about. (But don't worry, I did make sure that Alex Jones gets his two cents included below.)

Not taking away anything from the conspiracy theorists - and they may have a point - the real reason for me to focus on Andrew Breitbart today is to honor him by recognizing his leadership in the field of "citizen journalists," most of whom will never earn a nickel for doing what we do. The whole thing to remember is that there will not be just a 1,000 citizen journalists who will continue to fight for our freedom in our own ways, with the abilities that are God-given, but probably somewhere in the millions of us will carry on. That would fill up a lot of detention facilities (i.e., re-education camps)!

"They" may be able to take out one hero like Andrew Breitbart, if that is the case, but the pulse of those that desire to stay free will never, ever cease. The citizen journalists can't be silenced without a total purge. As I wrote on my facebook status one day: "Let me be perfectly clear: They will have to pry my grasp of Freedom from my cold, dead hands." Andrew Breitbart never ceased to keep trying to help us keep our liberty that our forefathers fought for. I'm just sayin'...

Breitbart legacy lives on in relaunched websites, final column
Via InfoWars.com: Breitbart’s Final Column Was Part of ‘Vetting Obama’ Series
From The Daily Caller ~ By Matthew Boyle ~ Published: 12:00 AM 03/05/2012

The late media mogul Andrew Breitbart’s final column was released Sunday night on a newly redesigned website that includes all of his “Big” sites under a single umbrella.

The column, which examines Obama’s admiration for radical community organizer Saul Alinsky, is titled “The Vetting, Part 1: Obama’s Love Song to Alinsky.”

Andrew Breitbart
Breitbart had planned the “Vetting” Obama series before his sudden death last Thursday at age 43. He announced the project during a speech at February’s Conservative Political Action Conference.

Breitbart said he didn’t believe the mainstream media did its job properly investigating President Obama’s past during the 2008 election and he would do the job the media failed to do this time around.

“I’ve got videos — this election we’re going to vet him,” he said in his CPAC speech, adding that “racial division and class warfare were central” to Obama’s 2008 “hope and change” slogans.

In his final column, Breitbart explored Obama’s decision in 1998 as a Illinois state senator to participate in a panel discussion after the performance of a new play celebrating the life of Alinsky.

Here is an excerpt from the introduction to Andrew's last column, "The Vetting, Part I: Barack's Love Song To Alinsky."
Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that our Constitution protects--but which, increasingly, the mainstream media denies us.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – “Who guards the guardians?” Andrew saw himself in that role—as a guardian protecting Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes.

Andrew wanted to do what the mainstream media would not. First and foremost: Andrew pledged to vet President Barack H. Obama.

Breitbart: “Wait ‘Til They See What Happens March 1st”
Breitbart died hours before planned release of damning Obama footage
From InfoWars.com ~ By Paul Joseph Watson ~ Posted Friday, March 2, 2012

In a stunning coincidence, It appears Andrew Breitbart suffered his untimely death just hours before he was set to release damning video footage that could have sunk Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.

Andrew Breitbart
Around three weeks ago on February 9 during the ‘Blog Bash’ event in Washington DC, Breitbart made a prophetic comment that takes on a somewhat chilling nature given the fact that he died in the early hours of March 1st.

Speaking to Lawrence Sinclair of Sinclair News, Breitbart stated, “Wait til they see what happens March 1st.”

It’s almost certain that Breitbart was referring to his plan to release damning footage of President Obama that he had been promising to reveal throughout the month of February.

As we reported yesterday, Breitbart spoke of his intention to release the tape during his CPAC speech last month. The footage shows Obama in his college days appearing alongside former Weather Underground terrorists Bill and Bernardine Dohrn. Observers had speculated that the footage could have derailed Obama’s hopes for a second term.

The fearlessness of Andrew Breitbart has spread throughout the new media. This investigative story by The Daily Caller exemplifies the fact that " ... when someone of Breitbart's magnitude passes, there are another 1,000 people that will continue where somebody like Andrew left off.":

Secretive nationwide network gives SEIU new organizing muscle
Via THEBLAZE ~ From The Daily Caller ~ By Richard Pollock ~ Published: 2:14 AM 03/05/2012

This is the first in a Daily Caller investigative series.

The politically aggressive Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has quietly created a national network of at least eight community-organizing groups, some of which function alongside the Occupy Wall Street movement, a Daily Caller investigation shows.

Incorporated by the SEIU as local non-profits, the groups are waging concerted local political campaigns to publicly attack conservative political figures, banks, energy companies and other corporations.

Each local group has portrayed itself as an independent community organization not tied to any special interest. But they were founded, incorporated, and led by SEIU personnel.

The individual activist groups use benign-sounding names including This Is Our DC; Good Jobs, Great Houston; Good Jobs, Better Baltimore; Good Jobs Now in Detroit; Fight for Philly; One Pittsburgh; Good Jobs LA; and Minnesotans for a Fair Economy.

In reality, they are creations of the wealthy and influential labor union, amounting to a secret network of new SEIU front groups.

I will start the conversation with the commentary regarding Andrew Breitbart by relating to you what I wrote within a couple hours after hearing the news and knowing it was confirmed:

Time 2 Escape WIFLI Special Edition: Andrew Breitbart dead at 43
From Blogging In Our Time 2 Escape ~ Posted Thursday, March 01, 2012, 11:18 A.M.


A very short time ago, when the story first broke on Fox News and then on Glenn Beck's radio show, I found out that Andrew Breitbart had passed away early today (or late yesterday?) from "natural causes."

It was a very big shock. I had just woke up from a very much needed power nap here in my office (darn, missed about 20 minutes of Glenn Beck's show!) when the story broke on Fox News, and so I pinched myself to make sure it wasn't just a dream, or a terrible nightmare. Very unfortunately, I was wide awake, and it really did happen.

The news hit me very hard. The things that Andrew had worked on in the last few years were fearless. He was a courageous patriot that exposed the corruption in government. Andrew understood that Americans needed to know what is really going on. He exposed ACORN back in 2009, with the help of undercover videographers James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles.

The fearlessness and courage of the man and his associates is matched by very few.

Back in the day before the WIFLI editions, I used to write about various commentaries by other patriots, one being Victoria Jackson that often received my accolades. This story was very fitting for this issue concerning Andrew Breitbart's influence on the New Media. My excerpt from this commentary will be from the introduction that I had written:

I know Andrew Breitbart! ~ By Victoria Jackson
From Blogging In Our Time 2 Escape ~ Posted Monday, April 25, 2011, 10:04 A.M.

I was finally able to read Victoria's column from last Friday morning. I'm a little behind on my reading. There is no shortage of brilliant columns to immerse ourselves in. Great media is coming at us 24/7/365 (366 next year!). And now with twitter and facebook and text messages telling us what our friends are reading or watching, there really is an infinite number of ways to entertain - excuse me, I mean educate - ourselves. Things just keep getting more hectic! But I am glad that I finally got to read Victoria's column. I learned a few things.

You will understand the gravity of the second paragraph of the excerpt above once you read down further. But first, make sure that you play the video below where Andrew Breitbart explains the citizen journalist movement to Sean Hannity:

~ Video provided by Fox News ~

It is all about CITIZEN JOURNALISM! I emphasize that point, because that is what this column is really about... for me. Sure, the actual theme of the column is that liberals can turn Conservative. Victoria and Andrew had once believed that they were liberals. They had at one time bought into the liberal lies... I mean ideologies. They became Conservatives. Don't forget, Ronald Reagan did the same thing.

And now for the great commentaries by the true professionals.

Farewell to Bo Diaz (aka Andrew Breitbart)
Exclusive: Joseph Farah remembers hard-working conservative warrior
From WND Commentary ~ By Joseph Farah ~ Published March 1, 2012

WASHINGTON – You don’t expect to wake up in the morning to learn that a friend, colleague and fellow co-conspirator – 15 years your junior – has died.

It’s just not right.

That’s the news I got today about Andrew Breitbart, someone I have known and admired for nearly 15 years.

I still can’t believe it. All who knew him were hoping that someone had hacked into his website this morning and posted the news as a cruel joke. That would be just like Andrew’s enemies. But, alas, the unbelievably tragic announcement was confirmed.

Goodbye, Andrew, and thank you
Exclusive: Barbara Simpson ponders sting and suddenness of death

From WND Commentary ~ By Barbara Simpson ~ Published Mar 4, 2012
The morning I heard that Andrew Breitbart was dead, I was barely awake as the radio announcement broke through my groggy brain. The news, however, snapped me to attention and I began a day that drifted between the radio and the Internet to get the news, the updates, the speculation and the remembrances.

I didn’t know Andrew personally, but he was a guest on my KSFO radio program many times, always generous with his time and comments.

He was outspoken, brash, courageous and tireless.

I loved the story of his life from wild-child liberal to wild-man conservative! I admired him and his work and his accomplishments. He made my job easy, but his job was never-ending and difficult, battling the establishment.

The love/hate relationship Andrew’s work engendered was apparent in the reactions to his death.

Conservatives, those who were friends and those who were fans, lamented the loss and praised his diligence and courage in exposing the hypocrisy in today’s culture and politics.

To call the liberals predictable in their reaction to Breitbart’s passing would be generous. They were like lemmings going over the cliff, and their veiled insults were almost pleasant compared to the viciousness of blogs and tweets that relished in delivering the most egregious insults.

But the one aspect of his death was the suddenness. According to reports, he was fine, went out for an evening walk, stopped for a glass of wine and spent some time in good conversation and on his way home, dropped dead. Literally. He was 43.

Despite speculation there might have been foul play because of his new investigation of Barack Obama’s college days – which is not out of the realm of possibility...

Breitbart's final message to the left
Star Parker: 'Irony is that truth and compassion come from humility, not pride'
From WND Commentary ~ By Star Parker ~ Published Mar 2, 2012

If you think about it, Andrew Breitbart’s untimely passing from this life, at the age of 43, might be seen as the ultimate message that this man of media could deliver.

Breitbart famously used his media talent, particularly his facility with new media and new journalism, to fight the agenda of the left.

And what could strike more effectively at the heart of the premises of the left than the inscrutable death of a young and prodigiously talented and successful man, still scaling the heights of achievement, husband and father to four young children.

The fact is that the inconceivable and the unanticipated is the rule of our lives rather than the exception. Nothing more clearly defines the line which separates the political left from the political right than appreciation of this fact.

The left, after all, is about the pretense of planning, power and control. It’s about the belief that man – political man – can define and control the world and can appoint himself the final authority to determine what is fair and mete out justice.

Yes, it is true, I can not avoid telling you that there will be plausible suspicions regarding the death of Andrew Breitbart. That is part of this story, after all. To bring some light to the possibility, I can always depend on Alex Jones, who you can entrust to come up with that alternative possibility that many may not even think about.

Did The Obama Crime Machine Kill Breitbart?

Video provided by TheAlexJonesChannel on Mar 1, 2012

It took LA a week to declare the cause of death for Whitney Houston but they knew 2 hours after Andrew Breitbart's death that it was natural and they told the world as fast as they could. Andrew said he would release film that would hurt Obama and now he is dead. It goes on and on and if that film dose not get released in full I call shenanigans.
