UPDATE 1: Our friends Aaron Dykes & Melissa Melton at's take on the smear/character assassination campaign

What Really Killed Michael Hastings? (Just asking...)

Published on Aug 21, 2013

The coroner's report is out on journalist Michael Hastings and the mainstream media is having a field day about how traces of amphetamine and marijuana were found in his system. We're no forensics experts, but even if Hastings was on every drug on the planet, this does not answer all the questions surrounding the suspicious nature of Hastings' exploding car and upcoming story on CIA Director Brennan and we have the right to ask these questions and they should be answered. Cars don't just blow up like that and throw their engines over 100 feet unless it's a Jerry Bruckheimer film.

How Did Michael Hastings Really Die?

The Los Angeles coroner has released the report on Michael Hastings’ untimely death, and it would appear the document will be milked for all the damage control propaganda it is worth.

Dancing in step to the establishment tune on cue, the mainstream media has jumped all over another excuse to titillate its audience with the second act of the spectacle we are currently witnessing.


noun \ˈspek-ti-kəl also -ˌti-kəl\

1:something exhibited to view as unusual, notable, or entertaining; especially : an eye-catching or dramatic public display

In short, you couldn’t write a better movie script than this morbid theater that’s being rolled out like a red carpet before our eyes, ladies and gentlemen.

The coroner found traces of amphetamine and marijuana in Hastings system. Let the media’s games begin.

The Associated Press began it’s report on Hastings autopsy with, “After 14 years of sobriety, journalist Michael Hastings had returned to drugs” (nevermind that would have made him 19 years old, a teen at the time when he last did drugs, something our own President has admitted to numerous times).

Prior to even reading the story itself, let’s consider the LA Times headline: Coroner, family link Michael Hastings to drug use at time of death. It’s pretty straightforward; the LA Times is suggesting drug use played a role in Hastings’ car wreck. But then the story actually says:

“Coroner’s officials said Hastings had traces of amphetamine in his system, consistent with possible intake of methamphetamine many hours before death, as well as marijuana. Neither were considered a factor in the crash, according to toxicology reports. ” [emphasis added]

So now Hastings is painted as using meth and pot hours before his car exploded, even though it was admittedly not a factor in his death.

Predictions in due Time...
