Here is a further update on Donald J. Trump’s campaign. Always keep yourself aware of all the latest developments!:
That video of a collapsed Hillary Clinton being dragged into a van in New York on Sunday was already adding to the doubts.
Her campaign’s sudden story of a previously undisclosed pneumonia diagnosis was already being scrutinized.
Now, even more disturbing accounts are emerging in conservative media, and elsewhere, that could mean a world of trouble for the Democrat nominee heading into October — trouble both political and personal.
The accounts include observations from unidentified sources close to Clinton, Republican lawmakers speaking on the record, and a Secret Service agent and a former Secret Service agent with years of experience living up-close-and-personal with the Clintons.
On WND, conservative author and political commentator Jerome Corsi cited three people close to the former secretary of state who came right out and said Clinton suffers from stage 3 Parkinsons’s disease. That condition is marked by “loss of balance and slowness of movement,” according to the National Parkinson Foundation.
Granted, one episode of passing out – even when it involves a presidential candidate at a national event – does not indicate the presence of a progressive and deadly disease. But Clinton’s own medical past, the questionable way Clinton’s campaign handled the whole event, and the behavior of the Secret Service agents surrounding her, raise questions likely to dog the election into November.
In a Facebook post Monday that was taken down for unexplained reasons, New Hampshire state Rep. Daniel Tamburello, a Republican and vocal supporter of Donald Trump, wrote that the information released by the Clinton campaign doesn’t begin to cover her condition.
Meanwhile, Gary Byrne, a former uniformed Secret Service officer Gary Byrne and outspoken critic of the Clintons, took a professional view of Clinton’s collapse in New York that indicated something is very seriously wrong with the Democrat candidate.
In a piece for Independent Journal Review, Byrne wrote:
Here’s what was very disturbing to me: after the medical episode, she went to her daughter’s apartment and not to an Emergency Room. Secret Service procedure for each detail dictates that everyone knows which hospital to go to depending on the event – heart failure, gunshot, you name it. It is very revealing that, whatever is wrong with her, she is being treated by her own private medical specialists in secret and, judging by the ballet-like reaction by her detail, they have dealt with this before.
Her detail knew that there was something very wrong with her and they were prepared.
Byrne wasn’t the only voice from the White House past hinting that the former first lady could be dealing with serious medical issues.
As Western Journalism reported, Dr. Connie Mariano, a Navy captain in charge of medical care at the White House in the 1990s, wrote about treating Clinton for a blood clot in 1998. That disclosure came in Dr. Mariano’s memoir, “The White House Doctor: My Patients Were Presidents.”
Mariano noted the extreme secrecy that surrounded Clinton’s treatment. The staff was told she had pulled a muscle.
“I assigned a female nurse in civilian attire to accompany Hillary on the campaign trail,” Mariano wrote. “I also notified the Secret Service that she was on medication. In the event she was injured, excessive bleeding would be a dangerous complication.”
There are a couple of things that are worth noting about the incident, which Clinton herself wrote about in her own mammoth, largely unread memoir “Living History.” One is that blood clots can be linked to at least a form of Parkinson’s called “vascular Parkinsonism,” which is marked by one or more small strokes that cause difficulties with balance and walking.
The other thing is the thick shroud of secrecy involved. Why did Clinton feel it necessary to lie to her own staff about something as innocent as a blood clot? Remember, what 1998 was like for the Clintons. It was the height of Bill Clinton’s sex scandal, the year he was impeached by the House of Representatives but saved by a Senate that declined to convict him of a crime every person in America knew he was guilty of.
For much of America, it was the year when sympathy for Hillary Clinton was at a peak, too.
A blood clot would have only made her more of an object of sympathy.
It’s the kind of sympathy her campaign staffers — who no doubt expected to be measuring their executive mansion offices for drapes at this point in the campaign — could surely need.
Because the Clinton return to the White House so far has proven far from the cakewalk coronation the former first family’s retainers in the media and political worlds expected.
First there was the unexpectedly strong challenge by Vermont’s aging Sen, Bernie Sanders. Then there was the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email use when she was secretary of state and rampant public disgust over the global money-laundering operation known as the Clinton Foundation. Now, the 68-year-old’s physical capacity for making it to November is actually being questioned.
And at the end of it all is Donald Trump, the Republican nominee who bested a strong Republican field to capture the nomination and has been tying or beating Clinton in recent polls, some of which show the GOP nominee surging.
She might even be able to get by the Republican nominee, given the Democrats’ edge on the Electoral College map — and general ruthlessness when it comes to the party’s power being threatened.
But if she’s dealing with Parkinson’s disease, all the money in the Clinton Foundation won’t be able to keep her healthy enough to serve as president for the next four years without putting the country in danger.
Hard as it might be for a Clinton, impossible as it might seem at this late stage of the game, she owes it to the country to come clean.
And Democrats owe it, too.
Just remember, don’t accept the media’s pro-Hillary line and never permit them to demoralize you. Make America Great Again!
