Thread: Michael Hastings Death: "No Foul Play"

    Default Michael Hastings Death: "No Foul Play"

    He brought down an American general. He could brutalize his peers. But Michael Hastings was never accused of not telling the truth. And given the outrage that often accompanied the publication of his stories, that’s saying something. Hastings is the Buzzfeed reporter and contributing Rolling Stone editor who died early Tuesday in a one-car crash on Highland Avenue in Los Angeles

    In April, after the Beverly Hills premiere of Greenwald’s movie, “War on Whistleblowers: Free Press and the National Security State,” Hastings participated in a panel discussion. “He responded very strongly to the film,” Greenwald said. “He felt it was very important that people understand what’s at stake.”"Michael Hastings reminded us often that our greatest work is often accomplished not by following the rules, but by rather by breaking them." - Robin Abcarian at LA Times - Michael Hastings: The importance of not following the rules

    When he died, Hastings was working on a story about CIA Director John Brennan.



    He just died Tuesday so its good to see that the authorities are on top of it!

    -----
    The Los Angeles Police Department said there appears to be no foul play in the one-vehicle accident that killed journalist Michael Hastings. The Los Angeles County coroner on Thursday positively identified Hastings as the driver of a Mercedes that crashed on Highland Avenue near Melrose Avenue on Tuesday morning.
    Hastings' involvement with hot-button stories has led to a variety of conspiracy theories arising on the Internet over his death. But LAPD officials said the incident appears to have been an accident and that no other vehicles were involved. Officials are trying to determine whether there was a mechanical problem with the car. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing.
    Hastings was best known for a 2010 Rolling Stone profile that led to the resignation of Gen. Stanley McChrystal. Hastings was a contributing editor to the magazine.

    Yes, nice.

    "Hours before his death, Hastings contacted Wikileaks and said that the FBI was investigating him."

    So it looks like a tree travelling at high speed smashed his car...

    It looks like a classic from the past, THEY managed to tweak his brakes, so the car won't stop. The only way to stop a car in case the brakes are out of order, is to start slowing down the car with the gears, and then switch off the engine. The problme is that in order to to this manouvre you have to be driving a car with manual gears.
    When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth...

    That's why you keep things general. Not dishing on a General.

    Default Michael Hastings was murdered: CASE CLOSED

    There was no high speed impact into the palm tree and I challenge anyone to prove that myth. What direction was the Mercedes travelling before the crash? What direction was it facing after the crash? What direction was it in relation to the tree? NO CRASH CAN BE PROVEN!

    Michael Hastings joins the long (incomplete) list of the silent dead who are no longer a threat to the Double Government Ruling Elite.

    1986 Barry Seal, CIA drug pilot machinegunned in Baton Rouge

    1993 World Trade Center bombing

    1993 Vince Foster suicided, the man who knew too much

    1995 Oklahoma City Bombing

    2001 9/11 Attacks – The mother of all black ops

    2002 Assassination of Senator Paul Wellstone

    2004 Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter, Gary Webb, murdered. Webb
    broke the story of the CIA’s direct involvement in drug trafficking.

    2008 Murder of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the D.C. Madam who ran an escort agency that served Washington’s elite, is murdered to prevent her from speaking publicly.

    2008 Murder of Michael Connell, who was directly implicated in rigging George
    W.Bush’s 2000 and 2004 elections, is killed before he can testify in court. Prior to the killing Karl Rove had threatened his life.

    2013 Murder of author Philip Marshall and his two teenage children. Philip
    Marshall was one of the leading researchers on the ties of the Bush family to the 9/11 attacks.

    And a whole lot more

    At 1:06 the passenger's side is clear of damage up to the front. That is inconsistent with not only a real crash, but LL at 4:38. Most of the subsequent damage after 2:00 was faked to provide a visual that would be expected from a real crash. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LSY3wVuASg

    Odd, that. The 'official' record has Hasting's Mercedes travelling at 100mph when he apparently loses control and slams into a palm tree and his vehicle bursts into flames. But the palm tree shows little damage at all. Further oddly enough, the Mercedes Benz company might like to explain how the engine and drive train stayed in one piece as it was ejected far from the car, at an odd angle. This is probably the first time that ever happened in a 'collision' involving a late-model Mercedes car.

    There is no evidence he was travelling so fast. It very much looks like a bomb exploded, causing his instant death with the resulting fire. Nice job. Very professional. Hasting's body burned to a crisp. From long experience, the CIA know the best place to plant plastic explosives in or under a car. Tough luck, Michael. They got you. Pity, we needed more courageous guys like you.

    At least you can have chats now with these guys who also suffered violent deaths, most likely from the same bunch of government murderers...

    These murderers are bulletproof and have the full backing of extremely powerful agencies. Hence twin-engined aircraft with two experienced pilots can be disabled to crash, with transportable electronic beams that also open private garage doors (Wellstone); they have access to and expertise in using poisons that disappear five days after they kill you, but unfortunately for them, leaving you skin a bright crimson red (Breitbart); they know how to install a microprocessor that can bring down a light plane at the right time (Michael Connell); and they are of course, experts in those good old standby killing methods, strangulation, explosives, silenced guns, drowning and unfortunate falls from high places. This is the muscle power of the Ruling Elite. This is one very dangerous group that will not hesitate to protect their interests.

    At 1:06 and other points in the video the right side is clear of damage. The simplest proof of foul play is the utter disrespect they have for the public by showing the limited damage in the beginning and then adding more later that never occurred. The carnage that a real crash into a tree causes is missing from much of the evidence in this case. Video link at the bottom.
