The New American

There clearly is something wrong with Hillary Clinton.
Very, very wrong.
The Democratic nominee’s shocking collapse at Sunday’s NYC 9/11 ceremony has finally broken the mainstream-media blackout on discussing her waning health, concerns over which had previously been dismissed as “conservative conspiracy theories.” Washington Post Clinton sycophant Chris Cillizza, who had shrugged off the concerns just last week, now admits that “Clinton’s health just became a real issue in the presidential campaign.” The hard-left Independent has finally acknowledged that the nominee has a “life-threatening disease that could alter the US election.” And reporter David Shuster tells us that Democrat insiders have informed him an emergency meeting by the Democratic National Committee is being considered to replace Clinton on the presidential ticket.
To recap, ill health caused Clinton to leave Sunday’s 9/11 ceremony early. While secret service agents kept reporters away, video (shown below) was captured of the candidate apparently propped up against a concrete barrier while preparing to board a black van. Clinton then collapsed as she tried to enter and was caught by the agents who then, say law enforcement sources, “threw her in like she was a side of beef.” During this episode the nominee lost a shoe, later retrieved by an agent.
The Clinton campaign initially explained the collapse by saying the candidate was “overheated,” a fanciful notion given that NYC temperatures Sunday morning were only in the 70s. Now the campaign claims that Clinton had been diagnosed with “pneumonia.” Yet this raises two issues:
As The Week noted, “After Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia and put on antibiotics, she did not, as her physician recommended, take time out to rest. Instead, she attended a fundraiser featuring Barbra Streisand. Then on Sunday morning, she attended the 9/11 commemoration.”
And as the Daily Mail asks, if Clinton has contagious pneumonia, why did she embrace a young child after leaving her daughter’s Manhattan apartment a little later in the day?
The reality? It’s hard to escape the conclusion that Clinton suffers from a serious illness, with the possibilities including subcortical vascular dementia, mini-strokes, and Parkinson’s disease. (I interviewed a doctor about these theories just this morning. More on that later.)
Note that more than two weeks ago already I stated that Clinton’s health is so poor that “electing her could leave us with a president Tim Kaine.” Why is the mainstream media so late to this story? They’re in denial and not doing their jobs. For while the press has given the “nothing to see here, move along” impression by presenting in any given report only one or two aspects of Clinton’s health woes, the big picture tells the tale. As I wrote August 23:
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 posted 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, one on each side of her.
Then there’s another picture of Clinton being propped up by handlers, shown at Menrec.com. As the site puts it, “Documenting the falls, stumbles, black outs, and general health issues of Hillary Clinton is practically becoming a daily occurrence.”
So what’s the big picture painted by Clinton’s myriad signs and symptoms? How sick is she really? Dr. Ted Noel, a medical doctor with more than 36 years’ experience, created a video (shown below) in which he makes a convincing case that the candidate has Parkinson’s disease.
The doctor I interviewed (who wishes to remain anonymous) was kind enough to view the video. While he, like Dr. Noel, is not a neurologist, he is a board certified physician with more than three decades’ experience and is someone I can trust to render a judgment uncolored by political bias. His verdict?
Parkinson’s is the most plausible explanation.
He said that, in particular, the unusual, seizure-like head movements Clinton has exhibited — as shown in the video — are textbook Parkinson’s.
Clinton’s candidacy is unprecedented, not just because of her sex but her sickness. While presidents have fallen ill while in office, I know of not one whose health was so seriously impacted while seeking a first term. And watching Clinton over the past year, it appears she’s deteriorating rapidly.
It’s incredible that such an unhealthy candidate would seek the presidency. Yet Hillary Clinton is — at least for now.
