    How do you hang yourself from a doorknob? It doesn't even make sense. And three prominent personalities? From a doorknob? It's just too incredulous.

    Welcome to the new age of enlightenment.


    We're one with you Anthony. God bless and good speed.


    Now I'm crying, Indigris.


    I wish with all my heart and soul they would stop killing people.

    Robin Williams, David Carradine, Michael Hutchence (INXS), Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) all come to mind.

    Aside from the way it was done. Suicide is unforgivable, imo. My grandfather hung himself 2 years before I was born. Never met the man. His death affected my mother's side of my family (down to both my sister and myself) to this day. They never think about the repercussions of their actions. They don't realize how it will affect their loved ones (and generations afterwards). Such a bull**** way out, imo.

    On the contrary, I think it is very difficult to kill yourself. I also believe you alone are responsible for what you do with your life. It is obviously very sad and hard for those left behind but we each have our own life to live or not.

    Take a look at his twitter feed. Four days ago on 2 June he said:

    ...and I am in no way an HRC fan. Ive been on the receiving end of her operatives' wrath. And it ain't fun.

    https://i.redditmedia.com/JzIxXDDxw3...cmEfqkeXE.jpg?

    On 6 May he said: I'd tweet but I'm waiting for a FAX with my instructions from the Deep State

    https://twitter.com/bourdain/status/993050458229882882

    Make of it all what you will, but it is beginning to look like there may be more to this than depression and hanging from a door knob of all things. There is much more to learn about his last few months.

    I am going to call it as I see it.

    Tony was hit, assassinated, it was about his challenging of authority.

    Robin Williams - 'suicide by the doorknob' - massive challenging of authority. (btw, I've known Robin personally during his work on Ferngully, the Last Rainforest)

    Actor David Carradine 'suicide by hanging' - so called 'sex aberration' - massive challenging of authority - 1970s television drama "Kung Fu"

    One could do a study on the hit on those 'challenging' authority.

    In December this last year, I had the opportunity to be invited into the inner sanctum of the Bohemians. In San Fran. I got a chance to see "authority" in action.

    Throughout these last few months I have seen "authority" dictate lives, saying they know best, that 'their timing' is the right timing that we are mere "amusements", or pets for them or worse slaves to do their bidding. They have no clue what 'reality' is like, but they 'absolutely know' because of their money masturbation (love of money=power over life), they 'know' what is best for civilization.

    There is a lot more on this, but simply put, it was a 'hit' masquerading as suicide. I don't believe one moment it was suicide. More on this later..

    L'Wren Scott, another fashion designer, (and girlfriend of Mick Jagger), was found hanged from a doorknob in New York City in 2014. There was no note.

    Thanks Norman and Bill.

    As you said, Alex Jones is saying in this video that Anthony Bourdain was killed because he was planning to go public with a "pro-human" message similar to that of Elon Musk, he says that those two knew other and becoming friends, and this deal is a warning to Elon Musk. He's talking about some footage (recorded by Bourdain in Morocco?) which contains a lot of explosive information...

    That's the main specific information in the video. Although he mentions offhand that Ashton Kutchner is also about to go public.

    It's interesting because Bourdain was clearly a very thoughtful guy who can see beyond the binary political paradigm in the US. Of course, hard to prove but worth watching Elon Musk closely. And it is strange that Bourdain would kill himself, with a young daughter to look after.

    Edit: after looking at comments on the internet, it is obvious that many people don't think he committed suicide (even a story on CDAN suggesting that his girlfriend was the real target...). After overcoming drug addiction and so many life challenges, he was successful at the age of 61. And his daughter was only 10 or so. It's natural to question whether "depression" is really a good explanation when there was no warning of it. It's amazing that the mainstream media doesn't even question the official story. Almost as if independent thinking is just not allowed. Bizarre.

    Here's the CDAN story (most popular on the site at the moment): http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/20...-didnt-go.html

    Something very much doesn't feel right about the suicide story, but who knows if there wasn't way more to Anthony than met the eye despite how unrestrained he seemed to be about exactly who he was.

    It just seems unlikely that's it's an insignificant fact that Anthony's employer for so long was one of the most corrupt, evil and sold out propaganda and cover-up outlets on earth - CNN.

    All I do know is that when you're working anyplace for years, you notice lots of things, make lots of friends and talk, and in CNN's case over time probably learn a lot more than you want to know.

    Was he as nice and ethical a guy as he portrayed himself - the only one at CNN - and the ugly he learned so ugly he couldn't stand some hypocrisy inside himself working any longer for what felt like Satan?

    Was it Weinstein revenge for his girlfriend being one of his accusers?

    Was it extreme play that got out of hand?

    It jumps out at me that it's being reported as his friend Ripert 'found him'. This means he had his hotel key?

    I just bet there's a lot of details not being made public.
    RIP Anthony

    Alex Jones says Bourdain was close friends with Elon Musk and was about to go public with a 'Musk vision' that was going to be very critical of the aganda that's driving humanity right now, and was going to present a fresh new vision.
    Yes. Here's the report:

    And also see:

    Thank you for posting the clips, Bill!

    Regardless, is it just me or the way Mr. Alex Jones in these clips told & explained his story is kinda indirect and subtle, to the point of being difficult to understand??

    I mean, I get the main message from him that Mr. Bourdain's sudden suicide might be a cover for the coming NWO that he'd been trying to expose, but I feel like I've missed some other important details in the clips. I do understand that sharing stories of this nature probably requires one to do it in a subtle way, or he risks being hunted down, but could anyone here please explain whether there's any other important info in the clips that members here need to grasp?

    Thanks much!!

    When I owned my company years ago in Detroit I had a crew that was on the road come back from a job. This 21 yr old kid was on that crew, The first day back this kid went to the bar and saw his girlfriend with another guy and went home to where he and his brother lived, woke up his brother and told him he loved him and then went in the shower and tied 2 belts together from the showerhead. The belts were just short enough as to when he tried to sit down in the tub his butt was off the bottom of the tub about 3 inches. There was all kinds of scuff marks from his boots in the tube as his legs were laying forward as I am thinking as he was slowly hanging himself this was his reaction to the end. Sad day me announcing to everyone he was gone and so young .

    Alex drives me nuts, might be minor detail but he is calling him Bordeaux, Bourdour, Bordain, he says he was recently remarried which is not true, that his daughter was 9 she is 11......minor details but ffs get his name right Alex.

    Also...
    Just three hours before Bourdain was found dead, Argento shared a photo on her Instagram story that showed her wearing a shirt that read “F--- EVERYONE.”

    “You know who you are,” she captioned the post, according to People.

    She has since deleted the Instagram story.

    Exactly Lefty Dave. My brother-in-law recently died from overdose at age 31. He had been revived from near death about 4 times before that. They don’t know they’re dying. They feel no pain and so they have no painful memory to deter the next OD. My wife, a nurse practitioner, works part time in a recovery clinic and they all say the same: If you’re gonna kill yourself without pain, OD on heroine.

    There is one thing I haven't seen mentioned. There is a dark magic, maybe with technology, which can try and make you commit suicide. I experienced it but made it through. It was very dark.

    If Anthony was the brunt of some of that, I would still consider it a hit even if no one came within a mile of him. A low blow.

    It seems Anthony was intending to expose HRC and became the latest assassination by the Clintons. See the video below.

    So Snopes just weighed in on the Anthony Bourdain story:

    No mention of any of the obvious logical facts that were discussed here. That Bourdain, who understood heroin well, opted for a violent hanging instead of a peaceful heroin OD. That his girlfriend denounced Harvey Weinstein at Cannes and threatened those who enabled him. That there are a strange number of people who seemed to have happy lives and add suddenly decided to end it by hanging themselves from door knobs.

    Instead, Snopes take the most hysterical and poorly researched version of the story and then declares that it is the origin of the story. Instead of even describing the story, they used words like "word salad" , "tortured logic" and "obfuscatory false and misleading statements" without any analysis of of the specifics that lead to their generalized conclusions.

    I know people have been complaining about Snopes for years and I had often defended them, that they at least presented an argument worth reading and had some valuable links in them - that they were just twoNew Yorkers and a cat and a liberal bias. But they have clearly sunk to a new level of creating pure garbage journalism.
