Michael Hastings Feared His Mercedes Had Been Tampered With

Michael Hastings Feared His Mercedes Had Been Tampered With

Day before crash: “He was afraid to drive his own car”

Paul Joseph Watson
August 22, 2013

The very day before a suspicious car crash claimed his life, journalist Michael Hastings feared his Mercedes had been tampered with and asked to borrow a friend’s vehicle, telling her that he was “scared and wanted to leave town.”

The revelation, which emerged in an LA Weekly interview with Jordanna Thigpen, re-emphasizes the fact that Hastings was fearful for his safety having complained of being under scrutiny by the FBI.

Never buy Mercedes!

They're fireball explosive death traps!

I read somewhere that someone in the Army said that...

...one day they would get back at Hastngs for taking down McCrystal.

I have little doubt that this crash was related to that.

Because: "Truth is treason in the empire of lies."

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

The best way I see to get to the bottom of this is to

boycott Mercedes. Obviously their cars are either dangerous to drive or something sinister was done to it. If the public pressured Mercedes they would spend whatever money it took to clear their names and get to the bottom of what really happened.

Is this a joke? 99% of

Is this a joke? 99% of Americans don't even know who Michael Hastings is and if they were informed most wouldn't care about his story. Even of those that do know his story only a minority believe there is some secrete to reveal. So a boycott on this would result in a change in sales to small it couldn't even be statistically approximated.

And even if a powerful boycott were possible; it wouldn't be moral. So the FBI or CIA or Army operatives so mess with a car and cause a journalist to die, and we punish the completely innocent car company?

I hope the CIA never buys pens from honorable businessmen, I'd feel so bad having to boycott a good companies services for allowing people that do bad things to purchase their products. And after I finish typing this post I'll have to shut down this PC and toss it in the trash - after all it uses things like Windows, IBM chips, Chrome, Cisco, Adobe, etc... and I hear their products have are used by the CIA to injury innocents so I'm boycotting all these products as well. I'm selling my Toyota, converting the Federal Reserve notes I get in return to bit coins b/c I'm not certain the CIA has used those yet, but surely they have a few Toyota's and lots of dollars. Too bad I'll never be able to use those bit coins having trashed my PC, cell phone, table, VISA card, etc... Life will be tough for a while, but soon everyone will follow my example and Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Toyota, Intel, Facebook, and the US Federal Reserve will see our resolve, investigate the abuses and see it stopped, then all will be sun shine and rainbows, amen.

bitter much?

wow you appear to be a real sarcastic anus. Good luck with that. Thank you for sharing.

so he came by to his neighbor to ask to borrow her volvo after

midnite, then the article says the next day she got a call "the next day" at 11:15am informing her he had died. My question...did he die that same nite (after midnite), or did he die 1 full nite later?

Ie. is the author counting the "after midnite" day as 1 day? and if so, the crash was the next calendar day (in the wee morning hours)

It wasn't the day before,

It wasn't the day before, it was hours before. The first part of the article is a bit confusing but further down it clarifies-

That night, his brother later told investigators, Hastings smoked marijuana and passed out around 12:30 or 1 a.m. His brother retired to the empty apartment underneath Thigpen's — the one Hastings used to write.

That timeline may be slightly off, however, because Jordanna Thigpen says that at 12:30 a.m., Hastings came to her apartment and asked to borrow her car. He was scared, she says, and trying to get out of town.

Meth in autopsy report

The autopsy report claims that meth was found in Hastings' system.

Here's the important part that they leave out:
Adderall will cause you to fail a urine test for meth. It also looks identical to meth under GC-MS analyses.


No, tox report said amphetamines,not methamphetamine

There are 30 different types of amphetamine blends marketed to treat ADHD alone. Adderall is a blend of four different amp. salts. There are a host of OTC medications that are metabolized as amps (or appear as such in tox screens)Drugs documented to cause false positives for amps include; Telithromycin, modafinil, bupropion, desoxyn, dimenhydrinate(dramamine to treat motion sickness).The list is endless.To assume this man was off in Walter White's wild blue yonder is shallow and pedantic IMHO.
