Plagued by life-threatening blood clots, hypothyroidism, a history of falling, fainting and dizziness, and uncontrollable chronic coughing fits that compromise her ability to communicate, Mrs. Clinton seems to be battling more than normal senior fatigue on the campaign trail, at times struggling to walk, to climb stairs, even to speak coherently. As pieces of Hillary’s long term maladies become public, they prompt concerns about her physical ability to effectively execute the office of President of the United States.
HISTORY OF LIFE-THREATENING BLOOD CLOTS
Hillary has a history of blood clots beginning in 1998. “Following her first deep vein thrombosis – a blood clot in the leg – in 1998, she was told to take Lovenox, a short-term blood-thinning drug, whenever she planned to take long-distance flights. After her fall, concussion, and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis – a blood clot in the brain – in 2012, she was permanently placed on Coumadin due to her family’s health history.”
Hillary’s own supporters have talked about the “blood clot that formed in one of the two major veins that drain blood from [her] brain.” Her symptoms include “headaches, visual problems and dizziness/balance problems.”
“We know Hillary suffered two deep vein thromboses and an episode of cerebral venous thrombosis. Blood spontaneously clotting within one’s veins on three separate occasions is not a good thing. In fact, it is life-threatening. This tells us that [Hillary] has a ‘hypercoagulable state’.” Hillary requires a regular dose of blood thinner for the rest of her life to reduce the risk of clotting.
2009: As Secretary of State, Hillary experienced a severe fall, breaking her elbow. The New York Times reported Hillary “slipped while walking to her car”. Reporting on the incident, ABC warned that it could indicate the bone-weakening condition osteoporosis.
She reportedly received a “severe” concussion from that fall which apparently caused a blood clot in her brain, requiring blood thinners. Her husband Bill told reporters that it took Hillary 6 months to recover from that concussion. If she were a football player, she would have been subjected to mandatory neuropsychological testing before being allowed to play. Yet the media do not demand to see medical records or post-concussion testing for the aging Mrs. Clinton.
Months later, she appeared at Benghazi hearings wearing thick glasses with a special Fresnel Lens designed to treat double vision or Hemianopsia. The most common causes of Hemianopsia are stroke, brain tumor, and trauma. Discussing the need for these special lens, Dr. Todd Lasner posited:
My first suspicion would be the Fresnel prisms were prescribed for Hillary Clinton because of nerve damage causing double vision resulting from a trauma to her head, possibly from the fall causing the concussion…[b]ut without her medical records, I cannot say for certain.
As reported by Politichicks’ Maureen Mullins, NBC’s medical expert Robert Bazell, M.D. made an important observation that using blood thinners to relieve a clot acquired via a concussion is contra-indicated because use of blood thinners could very likely lead to death from internal bleeding:
The problem is that concussions, when they lead to blood clots — the bloods clots are not usually treated with blood thinners, as they say she’s being treated. If she has a blood clot that occurred because she was sitting around or something, they would treat that with blood thinners, and that would be fine. But there may be more to this story that we don’t know.
Given that she is being treated with blood thinner for hyper-coagulation, perhaps Mrs. Clinton did not sustain a concussion in the 2012 fall and that her blood clot is unrelated to that event. Perhaps the 2012 “concussion” is a cover to explain the fall resulting from a much more serious brain injury like stroke or seizure.
Multiple videos and photographs illustrate Hillary’s inability to walk, maintain her balance, climb stairs unassisted, even to stand independently during campaign speeches. Handlers will physically help her stand up, get into a car, aide her going up stairs. Are these difficulties related to her concussions or something else?
POSSIBLE EVIDENCE OF BRAIN SEIZURES
While the former Secretary of State has admitted that she cannot recall high level security briefings, blaming her memory lapses on a severe concussion in 2012 which required six months recovery and special glasses to combat double vision, some believe her history of falls and memory loss could be indicative of something more concerning: brain seizures.
Two recent videos appear to reveal Hillary Clinton experiencing “petit mal” seizures or “Absence Seizures.” The condition causes a short period of “blanking out” or staring into space or during the more serious kind of seizure, the person can make odd movements and the attack can last for 20 seconds.
During one campaign speech, Mrs. Clinton lost focus, her words trailed off nonsensically and she stared blankly at the crowd for several seconds.
A more disturbing video illustrates Hillary Clinton’s truly bizarre disconnected head shaking, bobbing and rapid eye blinking in response to a candid question. In the video Hillary seems to have “short-circuited” for a moment. When the apparent “seizure” subsides, Hillary quickly resumes a more normal facial expression; however, her response to the person’s question is disjointed as though she never processed the original question.
Absence seizure episodes are sometimes so brief that they go unnoticed, making the condition very hard to detect, easily overlooked or hidden. These seizures can happen more than 100 times a day. “Seizures are caused by abnormal activity in a person’s brain.” Proper diagnosis of Absence seizure requires an EEG (electroencephalogram).
HEADACHES, IMBALANCE, MEMORY LOSS
Her own campaign staff reports that Hillary experiences headaches, dizziness, has balance problems, can be confused and can lose her train of thought.
World Net Daily reported that during the Democratic debates in December 2015, a “flare up of problems from brain injury” required Clinton to sit in a chair off-stage to recover from fatigue, dizziness and disorientation.”
Hillary herself admits that she doesn’t recall many of the security briefings she received while Secretary of State. She repeatedly “could not recall” the answers to 27 FBI questions regarding her private email server and communications habits and “did not ‘remember’ details of her emailing and classification habits at least 12 times.”
News reports, videos and photographs document Hillary’s chronic uncontrollable cough stretching back over the last eight years. Hillary herself has downplayed these incidents as a result of “talking too much” or “allergies.” According to Harvard Medical school, Hillary’s chronic coughing is symptomatic of several serious conditions including heart failure, lung cancer and psychological disorders.
For the most part, the mainstream media has ignored or dismissed her coughing fits and have failed to chronicle the long term, chronic nature of Hillary’s dry hacking cough. Although NBC finally reported on Hillary’s recent show-stopping coughing fit at a Labor Day campaign stop, they also dismissed the four minute attack as merely a “frog in throat”.
DECADES OF MEDICATIONS
Hillary began taking daily prescription medication back in the 1990s to guard against the ever present risk of blood clots. Both of Clinton’s parents had histories of cardiovascular issues. Her father died of a stroke and her mother of congestive heart failure.
Hillary also takes medication to treat hypothyroidism or under active thyroid. The thyroid gland runs the body’s metabolism. Hillary certainly seems to be exhibiting many of the signs of Hypothyroidism including fatigue, weakness, weight gain, cold intolerance, irritability and memory loss.
Over the summer on the campaign trail in Nantucket Hillary appeared wearing a heavy woolen coat over her signature pant suit. The weather at the event was a sunny 81 degree and onlookers wore shorts and light T shirts. Hillary’s choice of clothing seemed very out of place if her thyroid medication is effective.
Moreover, Hillary has begun wearing ever larger ‘tent” like clothing at public events. What is she trying to hide? Concerning weight gain? Depends undergarments to guard against bladder leaks? Or perhaps a medical pump delivering her prescription medications?
Taken together, the symptomology and chronology of Mrs. Clinton’s documented health problems prompt sobering questions. Given her history of falls, memory loss, recent videos of possible brain seizures, and after her latest possible “collapse” at the 9/11 ceremony, Mrs. Clinton should release her medical records and also take an EEG (electroencephalogram) to allay voters’ fears about her fitness and ability to lead our nation.
As her employer, We The People have the right to know whether Hillary Clinton is physically able to execute the office of President if elected.
