” In the spirit of citizen journalism overriding mainstream media filters, Wednesday, May 1 will be “Everybody Blog About #Pigford” Day. All journalists, bloggers, and inspired writers are invited to contribute their thoughts about the Pigford scandal–one of Andrew Breitbart’s most important and passionate journalistic causes.
Whether through an official platform, or social media, you can make your voice heard–and now is the time to do it. After years of media denial, the Pigford story was featured on the front page of the New York Times last Friday. But many mainstream media outlets, and politicians of both parties, still refuse to acknowledge it.
May 1st is a crucial date because corrupt farmers’ settlements for women and Hispanic farmers are STILL open –the claims form is at FarmerClaims.gov–but the deadline for these schemes is May 1st.
Right now: start to get educated on Pigford. There’s a ton of material on Breitbart.com and other places. Google and you’ll see.”

” “I think it’s an important story about the effect that one person can have in a very short period of time to change the way an entire culture looks at something like the media,” said Larry Solov, president of Breitbart News Network and Andrew’s lifelong best friend. “And, frankly, the media was more interesting, in most ways, to Andrew than politics.”
Breitbart insisted that liberals controlled the establishment media outlets, so he declared war using the Internet as his battleground. The film includes his promotion of James O’Keefe’s anti-ACORN sting, hisShirley Sherrod smear and his one acknowledged journalistic scoop: Publishing Rep. Anthony Weiner’s lewd pictures, which resulted in the congressman’s resignation. Only one area was off- limit to the filmmakers: Breitbart’s wife and kids.
The documentary was originally scheduled to open Friday in a limited national release, but producers delayed it one week while appealing the Motion Picture Association of America’s “R” rating for the many f-bombs on screen. (A MPAA rep told us the appeal is subject to the release date and rules of the ratings system.) “
First came the impossible-to-miss show of support for free speech at Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. Next, the conservative film “2016: Obama’s America” became the summer’s sleeper hit sensation.
This Friday, the new film “Occupy Unmasked” opens; a guided tour of the Occupy Wall Street movement hosted by Andrew Breitbart that exposes its origins in ’30s and ’60s radicalism and its connection to both labor unions and the Obama administration.
Here’s how you can help generate buzz and box office success for the movie and its message:”
Warner Todd Huston
”One of the things we were treated to at this year’s Right Online event, sponsored byAmericans for Prosperity, was the world premiere of the documentary filmOccupy Unmasked.
The one thing I can say about this film is it is absolutely intense. The amount of violence committed by the “Occupy” leftists is shocking when you see so much of it gathered into one visual presentation. But the behind the scenes lies and the smoke screen deployed to hide who is really behind the creation and launching of this so-called “movement” is just as shocking and this film documents both. “
In our continuing efforts to keep readers abreast of developments in the Kimberlin conflict it is our pleasure to inform you that in addition to Saxby Chambliss in the Senate we can now boast of an outspoken advocate in the House .
Rep. Kenny Marchant of Texas has joined the fray with a public statement and demands that Holder , tee hee , investigate . I know , I know …. But you work with what IS , not what might be .
Anyway this all brings more publicity(sunshine) which is definitely to the good . ABC NEWS blog has also featured an extensive article on Chambliss’ call for Justice to investigate .
We can’t help but think that this is a very unwanted exposure for Brett Kimberlin .
A link filled history of the Kimberlin affair from Stacy McCain
Be sure and read it all for a complete understanding of what is going on .
“Somewhere between the time in October 2010 he threatened to sue Patrick Frey and the decision last week to make a similar threat
toward Ali Akbar, Brett Kimberlin crossed a Rubicon of desperation and burned the bridge behind him. In the past three weeks, Kimberlin
and his allies have escalated their deceitful war against conservative bloggers to the point that it
cannot be ignored, and must now be fought to a conclusion with the entire political world watching. “
Announcing the Breitbart Awards
“Breitbart set an example of what any indvidual can do, and showed people that you don’t need to go to journalism school or be a professional to make a big impact,” Erik Telford, the vice president of outreach at the Franklin Center, told POLITICO. “What we’re honoring, and what people are inspired to follow, is his pursuit for accountablity, finding the stories other people wouldn’t cover, and making sure the public got the information they deserve.”
There is no one more inspirational and deserving than Andrew Breitbart . He has inspired an entire army of citizen journalists and the world will never be the same .
Patterico provides us with a long detailed post about his personal ” swatting ” and the systematic campaign to silence him and others that has been going on for nearly a year .
Stacy McCain Reports
FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION
“Convicted felon Brett Kimberlin is the nephew of a wealthy Maryland woman who has contributed to a foundation that helped fund a 501(c)3 organization of
which Kimberlin is the director .
Kimberlin’s activities have recently attracted widespread attention because of his attempts to intimidate and harass bloggers
who wrote about his criminal history.
Harriet Crosby, 66, reportedly an heiress to the General Mills fortune, was one of the original donors to the Threshold Foundation, which contributed $20,000 to Kimberlin’s Justice Through Music Project
in 2008, according to database research I reported May 19 . “
My first thought is why anyone takes an ignorant moron like Alec Baldwin seriously anyway ?
“Alec Baldwin stooped to a new low tonight with his pathetic, unwarranted tweet about the late new media legend Andrew Breitbart. In an apocalyptic showdown with fellow actor Adam Baldwin of Full Metal Jacket and Independence Day fame, Alec invoked Andrew Breitbart’s name for no apparent purpose, causing conservatives and even some of Alec’s own fans to hold him accountable.”
I expect more from this story . Stay tuned .
Thanks to The Gateway Pundit we can see that Andrew lives on , even amongst the Occupiers of Chicago .

Natural causes eh ? I wonder . RIP Andrew .
