18 Years of Hillary’s Medical Problems From The MSM in One Convenient List

This weekend, Hillary Clinton had a very public stumble, and even the Washington Post‘s Chris Cillizza admitted her health had become a major campaign issue (one week after dismissing the issue out of hand). The video of her fainting after the 9/11 memorial ceremony went viral, but even that video is one in a long list of public struggles Clinton has had with her health.

To be fair, anyone at age 68 (69 in October) would likely have some kind of ongoing chronic medical condition, and Donald Trump likely has at least one of his own. That being said, the list of Clinton’s health maladies is long and publicly documented. It involves a number of recurring themes, especially blood clots and coughing fits. Many of her maladies are likely time-limited, and there is no guarantee that she still suffers from her 2012 concussion, for example.

Here is the list of public health struggles Clinton has had, in chronological order, since 1998. Ultimately, the voters must decide whether or not these threaten her suitability for the presidency.

 

1. A “potentially fatal” blood clot in 1998.

2. February 1, 2005: Clinton faints during campaign speech.

3. June 17, 2009: A massive elbow fracture.

 

4. 2009: A second blood clot, “deep vein thrombosis.”

5. January 12, 2011: Clinton stumbles boarding plane.

6. December 15, 2012: The concussion.

 

7. December 31, 2012: The third blood clot.

8. January 24, 2013: Fresnel lenses to prevent “seeing double.”

9. May 14, 2014: Bill says the recovery took six months.

 

10. July 31, 2015: Bardack’s letter and statement: hypothyroidism and allergies

11. October 22, 2015: A coughing fit at the Benghazi hearing.

12. February 16, 2016: Coughing fit in New York.

 

13. July 21, 2016: A seizure on camera?!

14. September 5, 2016: Another coughing fit on stage.

15. September 9, 2016: Diagnosed with pneumonia.

 

16. September 11, 2016: The fainting and final release of information.

WikiLeaks: Huma Abedin Email Proves Hillary Has Deadly Blood Clot

huma-ggggggggggggggg

WikiLeaks have released an email from Huma Abedin revealing Hillary Clinton’s deadly blood clot that formed three years ago.

Abedin, vice chairwoman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, wrote an email to Hillary referring to her cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), in a revealing 2013 email exchange.

The email suggests that Hillary’s alleged bout of pneumonia on Sunday may in fact be a blood clot, which drains blood from the brain.

Symptoms of CVST include headache, abnormal vision, any of the symptoms of stroke such as weakness of the face and limbs on one side of the body, and seizures.

Hillary Clinton’s Blood Clot Treatment And The Need For Privacy By Dr. Marc Siegel FOX News Thursday, January 3, 2013

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s happy departure from Columbia Presbyterian Hospital the day after New Year’s was not shrouded in mystery – nor was it announced with great fanfare. This is as it should be. A powerful politician’s health is naturally of great interest to the public and can even serve as a learning tool for various diseases for other people at risk for them.

But keep in mind that these high-profile individuals are human beings who are entitled to their privacy, and their physicians are bound by the same HIPPA laws that govern all medical details for all patients. In fact Secretary Clinton’s neurologist at Columbia, who I heard from yesterday, is a top national expert on strokes, brain clots, bleeds, and head trauma. She couldn’t be in better hands.

Her condition, Right Transverse Sinus Thrombosis, is a fancy term for a blood clot forming in one of the main sinuses (a drain) of the brain. This clot can lead to brain swelling or a stroke, and it is certainly life threatening.

However, in a situation where it is found incidentally and no symptoms have been exhibited, the risk is less because the brain’s venous system may have found another way to drain while the clot is in the process of being dissolved. It is the body itself which dissolves the clot, not the anti-coagulants (heparin followed by Coumadin), but the latter prevent further clots from forming as the brain is healing.

Now that Mrs. Clinton has been on blood thinners successfully for a few days, her risk of a stroke or other serious complication has decreased dramatically. She is going home because her blood tests are no doubt showing that her Coumadin dose is therapeutic. Why did this clot in the brain occur in the first place? Studies have shown that head trauma, which followed Secretary Clinton’s faint a month ago, is one likely contributor, along with the dehydration that she probably suffered from a gastrointestinal virus a month ago and the associated diarrhea.

Though the mechanism of a clot in the leg is more generally linked with immobility, there have been reports of venous clots in the brain occurring after prolonged sitting on planes. Since she suffered another blood clot in 1998, she now requires a hematological work-up to make sure she doesn’t have an underlying tendency to form blood clots in the first place – known as hypercoagulability.

If she does have that tendency, she will require a more prolonged or even permanent course of blood thinners, as well as an investigation to make sure there is no blood-thickening malignancy. This work-up cannot be completed until she is off Coumadin, which interferes with some of the results. Blood thinners are likely to be successful in Hillary Clinton’s case, and she can look forward to a full recovery with the help of her careful devoted physicians.

Her illness is a reminder to all of us in the media, journalist and physician alike, that health care is primarily a private matter, not a time for lurid interest and certainly not a time for political criticism. When it comes to celebrities and public leaders like Secretary Clinton, the urge to speculate and pontificate is high – but the high road is lined with respect and restraint.

DAIRY INDUSTRY KILLED 500,000 OF ITS OWN COWS TO KEEP MILK PRICES HIGH

P/C steve p2008

[9/17/16]  Some of the biggest names in the dairy business killed more than a half million cows in an effort to keep milk prices high nationwide over the past decade.

A class-action lawsuit alleges that customers paid higher milk and dairy prices because farmers – both big and small — slaughtered more than 500,000 cattle under an agreement with the National Milk Producers Federation. The idea was to keep the supply of milk down.

In the end, the milk industry settled with the plaintiffs for $52 million.

The slaughter was organized by the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF), a lobbying group which formed an organization called Cooperatives Working Together that consisted of four major dairy cooperatives: Dairy Farmers of America Inc., Land O’Lakes, Dairylea Cooperative Inc., and Agri-Mark Inc.,Bloomberg reported.

The butchering was euphemistically called the “herd retirement program, and it consisted of a trip to the slaughterhouse where the cows were apparently ground up into cheap hamburger.

The cooperatives product about 70 percent of America’s milk and they paid the farmers above market prices for the cows.

The plan apparently worked, as milk prices rose by 66 cents per hundredweight between 2004 and 2008, an analysis by Scott Brown of the University of Missouri-Columbia showed, Reuters reported. A hundredweight is the standard wholesale measurement for milk equal to 100 pounds.

The slaughter also violated a federal law called the Capper-Volstead Act, said Jeff Friedman, a partner at the law firm that filed the suit, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP. That law allows farmers to form cooperatives but it bans price fixing…CONTINUE READING
