In the early morning hours of June 18, investigative journalist 33-year-old Michael Hastings was killed in a fiery, single-vehicle crash in Los Angeles. Hasting’s new Mercedes C250 exploded, in fact, the blast was so severe that the car’s engine landed more than 100 feet away from the crash.

While the LAPD was very quick to blame excessive speed for the crash, witnesses have claimed the vehicle simply exploded before it hit a tree.

Even more troubling, only hours before he was killed, Hastings sent an email to his co-workers, alerting them that federal agents were questioning his friends and that he was working on a “big story” and needed to go “off the radar for a bit.”

On Tuesday, Hasting’s friend, Sgt. Joe Biggs told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly:

His friends and family that know him, everyone says he drives like a grandma, so that right there doesn’t seem like something he’d be doing, there’s no way that he’d be acting erratic like that and driving out of control.

Biggs also stated that Hastings was working on a story about the CIA at the time of his death.

Hastings also told friends that he believed he was being followed by the FBI.

In an unheard of move, two days later, the FBI has publicly claimed that Hasting was not being followed.

Of course, this is only the latest, mysterious death of someone who was at-odds with the Obama administration…

-Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever

On Oct. 9, 2012, the Coconino County Office of the Medical Examiner released the results of Sheriff Larry Dever’s autopsy. The four-term Cochise County sheriff was killed in a one-vehicle accident on September 18 while on his way to join his sons on a hunting trip near White Horse Lake.

The autopsy determined that Dever’s death was caused by multiple injuries and “the manner of death is (an) accident,” wrote Dr. A.L. Mosely.

Dever’s cervical spine was “structurally intact,” as was the thyroid cartilage, no signs of hemorrhage “in the strap muscles or soft tissues of the neck.”

Numerous bruises as well as a dislocated left shoulder were noted in the report.

About a week earlier, the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office reported that Dever was traveling at a speed of 62 mph at the time of the crash and was not wearing a seat belt.

The most shocking item in the autopsy report is Dever’s blood alcohol content (BAC), reported to be an astounding .291 percent.

Based on the results of a Virginia Tech study on the effects of alcohol consumption, in order to achieve a BAC of 0.291, Dever who weighed close to 175 pounds, would have needed to consume about 12 (12 0z.) beers or 12 (1.5 oz) shots of 80 proof liquor in a relatively short period of time.

Given the fact that Dever had been in law enforcement for 30 years and had worked numerous traffic accidents where alcohol had been a factor, the notion that this very highly respected sheriff sat behind the wheel of a vehicle downing drinks, one-behind the other, seems a bit implausible.

This reporter also spoke with a close associate and friend of Dever’s, who claimed on condition of anonymity that in all the years that the two had been friends, he had never seen the sheriff consume more`than two drinks in an evening.

According to a Coconino County Sheriff’s Office press release, an unidentified driver was actually following Sheriff Dever along a desolate stretch of Forest Service Road 109, but lost sight of his 4-wheel-drive 2008 Chevrolet pickup for a brief period.

Then, the driver “saw what appeared to be a cloud of dust, and as he came closer he learned that the vehicle had rolled over and was resting on its wheels.”

The witness told 911 operators: “he did not detect any signs of life from the single occupant of the vehicle.”

The crash occurred at 6:28 p.m. and Dever was declared dead at the scene at 7:26 p.m.

What questions remain unanswered?

The 2008 Chevy Silverado Dever was driving comes standard with front air bags which would have presumably deployed in a rollover crash such as the one Dever is said to have had. It is not known if the truck was equipped with side-impact or headliner air bags, as those are options on the Silverado.

The roof of the truck was not caved-in, nor was the cab heavily damaged, as evidenced by the pictures of the vehicle.

Aside from ‘multiple injuries,’ just what exactly did Dever die from?

One does not expire from multiple bruises, nor from a dislocated shoulder.

Who was the witness?

The only information this reporter has been given by Coconino County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, Gerry Blair, was that he was “unrelated to Sheriff Dever” and “did not know him.”

Why not name this person who just happened to be close enough to Dever’s vehicle that night to see the sheriff’s “tail lights leave the road,” in “a cloud of dust?”

Then, there is Dever’s rather epic BAC…

Initial media reports of the accident claimed that officers found no evidence that alcohol had been a factor.

And, while it was reported that beer and liquor containers were found at the scene, those were unopened containers which were ejected from the cooler in the bed of Dever’s truck when it flipped over.

There was no mention of open containers inside the vehicle, and if Dever actually had a .291 BAC, the smell of alcohol would have been prevalent and easily recognizable by law enforcement officers and rescue personnel working the crash scene.

The deputy who wrote the accident report marked “NO APPARENT INFLUENCE” under “CONDITION INFLUENCING DRIVER,” leaving “ALCOHOL” blank.

In fact, one crash-scene photo shows a half-empty (unbroken) bottle of 90 proof peppermint schnapps inside the cab.

Why the glaring discrepancy?

Of course, Sheriff Dever had made some very powerful enemies in recent years…

In March 2011, Dever told Fox News that for two years, U.S. Border Patrol officials had been telling him they were ordered on multiple occasions to reduce and even stop apprehending illegal aliens crossing the U.S./Mexican border.

Sheriff Dever said that a Border Patrol supervisor informed him that the agency was ordered to keep the number of arrests down during specific reporting periods.

“The senior supervisor agent is telling me about how their mission is now to scare people back. He said, ‘I had to go back to my guys and tell them not to catch anybody, that their job is to chase people away. … They were not to catch anyone, arrest anyone. Their job was to set up posture, to intimidate people, to get them to go back,’” Dever said.

The following month, Dever told the Senate Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security that the Border Patrol’s new policy of giving a warning to illegal crossers rather than taking them into custody, known as “Turn Back South” was not only being practiced near the border, but far north of it as well.

Dever reported: “It appears, according to numerous reports from current and former border agents, that this practice has gravitated many miles north of the border. That means that, regardless of proximity to the border, people who are detected but not caught are considered to be ‘Turned Back South.’”

The testimony was in direct conflict with the Obama administration’s public assertions on border security.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had been continuously telling us that the number of illegal aliens entering this country from Mexico has dropped substantially since Obama has become president, based on declining border apprehensions.

In February 2011, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that during 2010, illegal alien apprehensions fell by 36 percent from the previous year…Dever’s revelation explains why.
-John Noveske, gun manufacturer

On Friday, Jan. 4, 2013, the owner of Noveske Rifleworks, 36-year-old John Noveske, was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Highway 260 in Oregon.

According to the Oregon State Police, at approximately 9:13 p.m., the Toyota Land Cruiser driven by Noveske left the road near El Camino Way, and slammed into two boulders. The vehicle rolled and Noveske was ejected. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Noveske, himself often posted pro-liberty messages on the page, such as: “Socialism is fun until you run out of other people’s money.”

A few days before he was killed, Noveske published a lenghty diatribe on his Facebook page, linking the many shooting sprees over the last several years to teh use of heavily prescribed psycotropic drugs such as Prozac.

That post spaked a great deal of controversy and flew in the face of the Obama administration’s assertion that the availability of guns were the problem. Of course, Obama was pushing for sweeping gun control legistation at the time.

Noveske’s company primarily produced customized AR-15s.

He left behind a wife and three children.

-Keith Ratliff, 2nd Amendment activist and gun manufacturer

On January 3, 2013, the lifeless body of 32-year-old Keith Ratliff was found at FPS Industries in Franklin County, just outside of Carnesville. He had been shot once in the head, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Ratliff was well known for a series of videos he produced on Youtube known as “FPSRussia,” in which various high-powered firearms were demonstrated.

FPSRussia was the ninth-highest-rated channel on Youtube, with nearly a half-billion views, and more than 3 million subscribers.

Ratliff’s business, FPS Industries builds firearms and develops weapons technology.

Of course, several weapons were found at the scene, all to which Ratliff would have had easy access.

His widow, Amanda Ratliff told WSBTV: “You know, it just doesn’t really add up.”

The couple had a 2-year-old son together.

Ratliff’s brother Kelly, added: “For him not to pull out that gun and try to defend himself, he had to feel comfortable around somebody. Either that or he was ambushed.”

No suspect or motive has been named at this time.

-Andrew Breitbart

On March 1, 2012, the 43-year-old renegade journalist dropped dead while crossing a street in Los Angeles.

A witness told the Los Angeles Times that Breitbart “fell like a sack of potatoes,” and described his face as being “bright red” (actually inconsistent with a heart attack).

The morning after his death, his website posted the following message:

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior…Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

In April, the Los Angeles County’s Department of Coroner issued a press release, which stated : “No prescription or illicit drugs were detected. The blood alcohol was .04%,” a negligible amount.

“No significant trauma was present and foul play is not suspected,” the statement concluded.

The coroner ruled Breitbart’s death was likely due to “heart failure.”

On April 20, the same day Andrew Breitbart’s autopsy report was released, Michael Cormier, 61, a longtime forensic technician for the Los Angeles County Coroner died of poisoning.

No arrests, nor any further official statements have been made concerning Cornier’s death.

We are all familiar with the astounding number of deaths of those closely associated with Bill and Hillary Clinton, a phenomena which came to be known as ‘Arkancide.’

Are we now witnessing the early stages of ‘Chicagocide?’
