The murder of Michael Hastings



Michael Hastings was an award wining investigative journalist who wrote for the Rolling Stone magazine. In 2010 one of his hard hitting articles resulted in the resignation of General Stanley McChrystal who was the NATO commander serving in Afghanistan. June 18 2013 Michael Hastings died in a fiery car crash. We can talk about the suspicious nature of the crash all we want. Clearly if someone was trying to kill him they could have tampered with his car and put a bomb in it.

The indisputable fact is that he sent out an e-mail to numerous contacts hours before his death saying he was tipped off to an FBI investigation and that any of his journalistic sources should seek legal representation before answering any questions which still is a constitutional right. Knock on wood.

We can spend hours arguing about the suspicious nature of his death. To me that is pointless. We all know the people who killed him will never be charged and tried. In his e-mail he claims he was working on a big story and needed to go under the radar. Those were his words not mine. The thing we need to ask therefore is what story was he working on. Alex Jones claims it was about the CIA.

People can huff and puff about Alex Jones just like they huffed and puffed about Gary Webb. Gary Webb was right. The CIA was responsible for the US crack epidemic in the 1980’s. I don’t believe he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head twice after he documented everything in his book the Dark Alliance.

The CIA's drug trafficking history has been well established. They are a criminal organization with no public accountability. The sad thing is how their corruption is taking over other agencies as well like the FBI and the ATF. We saw how the ATF was involved in Operation Fast and Furious. That too was under the watchful eye of the CIA.

When it comes to the struggle between good versus evil, the CIA is on the wrong side. I’m not saying all hail mother Russia. I’m saying the CIA is no better than the KGB. In fact that is exactly where the CIA is trying to take us. The road to Bilderberg leads to the Rothschilds' funding of Corporate Communism. Despite their rage and denial, that is where the CIA is trying to take us with their drug trafficking network.

The fact is Michael Hastings is dead and we need to uncover the story he was working on. Actually it was Paul Watson and the LA weekly that said he was working on a story about the CIA. The New York Daily News quoted one of his books claiming Hastings had received multiple death threats before his "accident."

  1. Isn't there a similar story attached to the death of Hunter S Thompson?

  2. Possibly, I'll have to look into it. I think he was covering some bizarre snuff films story at the time of his death.

  3. Thompson died at his "fortified compound" known as "Owl Farm" in Woody Creek, Colorado, on February 20, 2005, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. So no, not the same at all..

  4. Yea right. Did he shoot himself in the head twice like Gary Webb? What Hunter Thompson was working on is worth looking into.

  5. This is directly from Wikipedia...

    Thompson's son (Juan), daughter-in-law (Jennifer) and grandson (Will) were visiting for the weekend at the time of his suicide. Will and Jennifer were in the adjacent room when they heard the gunshot. Mistaking the shot for the sound of a book falling, they continued with their activities for a few minutes before checking on him. The police report concerning his death stated that in a typewriter in front of Thompson, they found "a piece of paper carrying the date 'Feb 22 '05' and the single word 'counselor'."[44]
    They reported to the press that they do not believe his suicide was out of desperation, but was a premeditated act resulting from Thompson's many painful and chronic medical conditions, which included a hip replacement. Thompson's wife, Anita Thompson, who was at The Aspen Club at the time of her husband's death, was on the phone with him as he cocked the gun. According to the Aspen Daily News, before setting the receiver on the counter, he asked her to come home to help him write his ESPN column. Mistaking the sound of the cocking of the gun for the sound of his typewriter keys, she hung up as he fired the gun. Juan Thompson found his father's body after hearing the gunshot.

  6. So they were in a separate room when he was shot and didn’t investigate until afterwards because it sounded like a falling book. They invited them over for the weekend and showed no signs of wanting to commit suicide. The Gary Webb case is crystal clear. The Michael Hastings case is crystal clear. Someone mentioned Hunter Thompson and all I said is that it’s worth looking into what story he was working on at the time and it is. There is a lot of speculation about his murder: http://www.thompsonmurder.com/

  7. What’s crystal clear is the fact that Michael Hastings was an award winning journalist who was writing a story about the CIA and is now dead. Just like Gary Webb. He was concerned the FBI was investigating his sources and warned them to seek legal counsel.
