When I posted the original article the other night the first comments were how suspicious this accident appeared.

Fox mentioned it this morning. The suspicions are gaining traction. This administration is capable of anything.

Here is James Farganne's take on it.

That was what first caught my attention on the news reports the next morning...an engine being thrown that far out of a head-on into a Palm Tree?  And an explosion like that in a brand new Mercedes?  I've seen a lot fatal accidents like that - head-ons even - but I've never seen anything like that from a straight on car wreck.

And the blithe news reporters just read their scripts and emoted "how terrible!" with not a second thought at what they were looking at.

There HAS to be something more here, no idea what but this is not as it was reported.

Not to mention the crumple zones on a Mercedes, especially new models. The passenger compartments are fairly intact. Technology has come a long way.  This is a Honda, not a Mercedes, but it is just for an example. A Mercedes should be safer.

I am no expert, but something jumps out. Look at the grass around the car.



Tell me what's wrong with this.

Tire tracks.

More and more I am starting to believe Breitbart was indeed murdered, too.

Tire tracks.

That's one but I can discount that in assuming it was head-on into that tree instead of spinning across other trees away from us in the picture. OR, it was coming towards us so the tire tracks are obscured by the car itself.

But, what stands out more. The car was on fire, obviously, but the grass all around it is unharmed. some of the grass even appears to be right up against burnt areas of the car.

It is probably nothing, but I found it odd.

I'm still not buying that one yet. He had a heart condition, drank a lot,  and was a classic type-A. Sometimes a heart attack is a heart attack.

As you said, the grass is unburned.

It looks more to me like the Merc actually wedged between two trees pushing the entire body shell back.

What gets me is the visible rear wheel. The tire is right against the curb, yet still inflated with no distortion to the alloy wheel itself If you have ever curbed a car with alloys, you know exactly how easily they deform even at 5 mph.
