Anderson Cooper’s tribute to his friend Anthony Bourdain

  • Published on Jun 9, 2018
  • In death, as in life, Anthony Bourdain brought us closer together.
    On his award-winning series, "Parts Unknown," Bourdain brought the world home to CNN viewers. Through the simple act of sharing meals, he showcased both the extraordinary diversity of cultures and cuisines, yet how much we all have in common.
    Tragically, he proved this again on Friday. Bourdain's death shook television viewers around the world. The most common sentiment: "I feel like I've lost a friend."

    is anyone looking at what pushed him over the edge...there is so much horrible info about Asia's interest in horror becoming an interest for Tony as he tried to keep up with her and interested in him...those who suffer from depression, need to be around uplifting and positive people and not those who are dark - many are happy in their dark interests, but it's not for the periodically fragile or those who indulge in intoxication and become depressed...I just have questions about one of the most impressive people giving in and feeling they just don't want to do it anymore...

    Eulogized by one of his murderers major supporters.......nez pas?


    Please any reading this, you must turn to the Lord Jesus who is life and repent to him, because Jesus is the only hope for eternal life, because Jesus is eternal life. Although, suicide is not a biblical terminology, but it is murder, it is a taking of your own life and it is a sin. The Lord Jesus was merciful to have saved me from attempting murder, now 24 years ago when I contemplated taking my own life. How tragic for Anthony, and he should not be praised but pitied and mourned because, no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. Proverbs 8:36 “But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.” Proverbs 14:12-13 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness. John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” 1 John 2:3-5 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
    Eating anything with the blood is very evil unto the Lord God. Deuteronomy 12:23-25 Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh. 24 Thou shalt not eat it; thou shalt pour it upon the earth as water. 25 Thou shalt not eat it; that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.Acts 15:19-20 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God: 20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.
    John 8:21-27 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. 23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him. 27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
    Galatians 5:18-21 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
    James 4:4 “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” 1 John 2:15-17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

    Asia Argento was cheating on Anthony Bourdain with Hugo Clement days before his death, it was photographed and all over European newspapers. Anthony confronted her, they had a fight and Asia post a bullying picture on Instagram towards Anthony, hours later Anthony was dead. When Asia found out he was dead she removed her bullying post and proceeds to post how he was her rock and how much she loved him. The media won't call her out because she is huge in the #metoo movement and a huge feminist, she was photographed happy with Harvey Weinstein 4 years after the alleged rape occured. Her friend Rose Mcgowen was asked to help Asia not get shamed by the public, even though the media has left her alone. Rose wrote a letter recently and gave it to media outlets to state that Anthony and Asia had an open relationship, (this was not known to be true to anyone, no photos in 2 years with other partners, Asia also asked the paparazzi Rino Barillari to delete a pic of her and Hugo dancing ) they are trying to do public relation damage control about Asia being a slut and helping to kill Anthony with her bullying, with not one word of sympathy to the daughter of Anthony or the family. Anthony deleted Asia from social media before he died....Pass this on he deserves it.
    Asia Argento once made a movie where they dressed a 10 year old in drag and performed oral sex on Marilyn Mansion. Her dad made horror films simulating snuff films and had her star in them as a child, he also featured pedophilia. Asia Argenta's Instagram has many pictures of her worshiping the occult. It is said that she thinks she is a red witch (whatever the fuck that is) Her young daughter has the same images on her profile as well. Her best friend Rose Mcgowen that helps her try to champion the Metoo movement has a felony cocaine charge pending. Rose Mcgowen attacked Anthony Bourdain after his death stating Asia was strong enough to live for her daughter, Anthony wasn't.

    As tremendous a loss as it is,I guess it was his right.Some people are too complex/brainy for their own well being.I wonder if he saw too much of that war torn,impoverished third world on his travels.Maybe he instinctively knew something I experienced directly several years ago.I was clinically dead for a couple minutes(meningitis).After being resuscitated,I realized it's living you should be afraid of.Death just seems like an elegant lover inviting you back to bed again.

    @AnthonyBoudain was a deeply disEASED and sad man. I saw this in him because I saw beyond his surface. He was EXHAUSTED with all that TV stuff and being on the road non-STOP! He was too weak to quit! He didn't know how to disappear, so he exited! Cowardice approached; however, now, he is not anywhere physical as people knew his presence.

    "Sad solemn notes and crates of newly drawn stout, the usual symptoms when a life goes out. But the extinction this time being seven times the most. The music held no echo and the tears drowned our toast. Sorrow and bereavement, life has no meaning now, silence is master. Laughter and song bowed for gone went our great captain to some more hospitable inn where cant and hypocrisy can no longer embarrass him." Lament for Brendan Behan - Ciaran Bourke
