Hillary’s Health: Is Voters’ Presidential Choice Really Trump vs. Kaine?

Written by 

The signs are all there: bizarre coughing fits, falls, failure to return to a debate stage on time, requiring help up stairs, and what many describe as seizures and blackouts. Hillary Clinton is running what may be a truly historic campaign, as she is possibly the most unhealthy major party nominee to ever seek our nation’s highest office. Yet the media are predictably incurious about the true state of her health as they and her handlers try to drag her across the November 8 finish line — even though electing her could leave us with a President Tim Kaine.  

The latest person to point out that the would-be empress has no vibrancy is Rudolph Giuliani. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, the former New York City mayor stated, reports Politico, that

the media fail to point out how she [Clinton] has not held a news conference in over 200 days and her ‘several signs of illness.’

... Giuliani's comments are the latest from the Trump campaign [Politico describes Giuliani as a Trump advisor] questioning Clinton's stamina and health. Last week, Trump told Sean Hannity of Fox News that Clinton "doesn't really do that much. She'll give a speech on a teleprompter, and then she'll disappear. I don't know if she goes home [and] goes to sleep. I think she sleeps.”

As for Giuliani, he made further mention of Clinton's health on Monday, stating on Fox & Friends that the candidate "looked tired" and "sick" at a closed-door session with eight law-enforcement leaders last week in New York City.

The response to this by the Clinton team — which apparently now includes the U.S. media — has ranged from the inane to the eyebrow-raising. New York Times tech columnist Farhad Manjoo actually suggested that Google should manipulate search results to bury health-oriented information damaging to Clinton, tweeting, “Google should fix this. It shouldn’t give quarter to conspiracy theorists.” And given that search engines and social media, from Facebook to Google to Twitter, have already been caught facilitating the leftist agenda by suppressing truth, Manjoo’s message should be taken very seriously.

Then there was Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon, who wrote, reported Politico, "Google Rudy and health and you can read about how he withdrew from '00 Senate race against Clinton,” which Giuliani certainly did after learning he had prostate cancer. Yet Fallon’s folderol not only is a diversionary tactic — and is immaterial since Giuliani isn’t running for office — it also undermines Clinton’s position. After all, Giuliani’s story involves the idea that a wise course for a sick candidate is to withdraw from his race. And if Clinton had followed his lead, we wouldn’t even be having this conversation right now.

Of course, the Clinton campaign continually cites a 2015 letter from longtime Clinton physician Lisa Bardack stating that the candidate is in good health, but much evidence says otherwise. The 68-year-old has fainted on at least a few different occasions in recent years, including a 2009 incident in Yemen during which she fractured her elbow and a 2012 incident resulting in a concussion. After the latter, doctors discovered a blood clot inside her skull and, ultimately, diagnosed her with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, a condition so rare it afflicts only three out of every one million people. Moreover, a month after the concussion, Clinton staffer and confidante Huma Abedin mentioned in an e-mail that it was “very important” to go over phone calls with the then-secretary of state because Clinton was “often confused.”

And confused is precisely how her handlers want to keep the public, according to journalist and author Edward Klein. In his 2014 book Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas, he claimed that “Hillary Clinton’s health issues are drastically worse than she has revealed publicly — and [that] the potential presidential candidate tried to keep her medical information private for fear that it would damage her bid for the White House in 2016…. The 66-year-old former secretary of state has suffered more fainting spells than publicly known, is prone to have blood clots, and may be at serious risk of a stroke, according to the book,” wrote the New York Post at the time.

Since then, nothing appears to have improved. Clinton has experienced bizarre coughing spells that can last for minutes at a time, and was late for the resumption of the New Hampshire Democratic Debate last December, leaving her rivals conspicuously alone on the stage. And according to “a law-enforcement source with inside connections,” this was “due to health issues stemming from [the] previous brain injury," reported Breitbart in January. Explaining further, a neurologist stated that “Clinton is suffering from post-concussion syndrome, which can severely impact her cognitive abilities,” the site continued.

Then there was the picture hosted by the online Drudge Report (shown below) that went viral earlier this month of the candidate being helped up a short flight of stairs by two men astride her.

Unless Clinton was falling-down drunk at the time, it’s hard to interpret the above as indicative of anything but decrepitude. A similar photo, taken in April, has also emerged, showing the candidate propped up by two men at a campaign stop in Los Angeles.  

Not surprisingly, medical professionals have sounded the alarm. Board-certified medicine specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky (video below) said recently that “he is ‘gravely concerned’ about Hillary Clinton’s health, noting that the treatment she has received is ‘bizarre’ and could explain the ‘weird side-effects’ that people are seeing,” wrote Infowars last week.

Appearing on Fox Business shortly afterwards and largely agreeing with Pinsky’s assessment was top doctor and Rutgers University Professor of Medicine Bob Lahita (video below). As Infowars also reports, “‘This is a very unusual story with Hillary,’ said Lahita, making reference to her suffering two blood clots, a stroke and post-concussive syndrome, which caused Hillary to have to wear special prism glasses to counter her double vision. ‘The very fact that she’s having these clots and she’s had two bouts of thrombosis is disconcerting to say the least,’ said Lahita.” (Note: There is no official admission that Clinton suffered a stroke.)

Then there are the allegations that Clinton has experienced blackouts and seizures in public. Journalist Paul Joseph Watson explored the matter in the video below, showing footage of truly bizarre behavior exhibited by the candidate.

Of course, the above is also explainable, at least in part, by the fact that Clinton’s personality is largely artificial. I seem to recall that she was known as the “Ice Maiden” in high school; she never smiled much and apparently was coached on the behavior. She’s simply a poor candidate to whom humor and what many regard as normal reactions don’t come naturally; consequently, when she attempts these things in accordance with her programming, she often seems like the Third Rock From the Sun sitcom characters — who are aliens — when they imitate human behavior.

Regardless, while the Democratic ticket has recently been mocked as “Kaine and Unable,” referencing Clinton’s incompetence, it now appears she may also be physically unable to handle being chief executive. In fact, it’s entirely possible history will be made as a woman takes the presidential oath of office this January — and that another first will come close on its heels as a man finishes her term.
