Michael Hastings

Looks like he died of his demons after all.

by Anonymousreply 2511/11/2013

Just because you have demons -- or appear to have them -- doesn't mean they are actually what killed you.

Drugs suck. That is sad news.

So many very talented people are tormented.

I saw him on MSNBC weekend show with Karnacki about two weeks before he died and he was off the charts manic. He usually was a tad on the hyper side but this time he was just a mess. Sad because he was extremely talented.

I wonder what was behind the relapse. Was he despondent over something or just a hotshot brat in full party mode, having just arrived in glamourous (to a lifelong east-coaster like himself) El Lay.

I thought they only found traces of it? Not enough to have played a part in his death

by Anonymousreply 608/21/2013

Sorry, what I meant to say is that he didn't die from an elaborate car crash murder plot puppeteered by the evil illuminati. He died from something much more organic and human.

I apologize for the miscommunication.

It's about 80% certain he was murdered.

Why? Because nobody else but a guilty government would keep posting random threads about how it was his fault.

I can see it now: a secret room tucked four floors below the earth. Yellowed walls from all the smoking. Very serious-looking WASPy types pacing back and forth over a strategy map, placing colored tacks on their conquests. Suddenly, a hapless intern runs in with arms flailing and yelling "Data Lounge! Hurry, DATA LOUNGE HAS FIGURED IT OUT".

All he had in his system was pot and amphetimines.

They're trying to sell it like he was smoking meth, but it easily could've been Adderall. There are millions of people driving around with pot and Adderall in their systems at any given moment and their cars don't blow up.

Millions, [R10]? Project much?

Where is your data to back up that claim?

You have a relapsed addict with PTSD, sudden and unexpected fame, a family who had found him passed out at home around midnight and whose remaining family flew in that day to stage an intervention. Fast forward five hours later and this person crashes head on into a tree at an extremely high rate of speed at 5a.m. while the streets are still relatively quiet.

Probably not suicide. A humiliated and embarrassed former addict would never contemplate suicide. It's never happened before. Honestly, I've checked.

People cite the lack of drugs in his system, but it's when there *is* a lack of drugs in the system that addicts can be the most erractic. Especially meth.

He was murdered by Obama's [bold]TORNADO MACHINE[/bold]. It's so obvious! They even managed to make it look like a car accident!!!

we live in a fascist country. Truth.

I heard he was distraught over being catfished by Chelsea Brangelina Manning...

by Anonymousreply 1708/23/2013

r10 I doubt his family was gathering to stage an intervention over some fucking Adderall. Get real.

by Anonymousreply 1808/23/2013

Yeah R18, except that his family has publicly commented that they all flew in to stage an intervention.

Amazing that you know about the situation than his own family. You should turn that into a business.

If by demons you mean the U.S. government, OP, then yeah sure that's what did him in.

McChrystal loyalists sent him death threats, maybe it was them. I'd still count them as U.S. government, even if it wasn't officially sanctioned.

I don't.

Privately though, they were all flying in to go to Disneyland.

New York Magazine has a feature about his death. It's pretty tough on Hastings and seems very dismissive of the internet rumors about his murder.

by Anonymousreply 2311/11/2013

Conspiracies are published on the internet. Counter-conspiracies are published in "name" magazines, usually by unknown writers with government connections.
