Are Hillary Clinton’s days numbered as the Democratic Party Presidential Candidate?
After Clinton’s fainting and falling out yesterday, The Washington Post’s Chris Cilizza wrote that
Whether Clinton likes it or not, her “overheating” episode comes at a very bad time for her campaign. Thanks to the likes of Rudy Giuliani and a small but vocal element of the Republican base, talk of her health had been bubbling over the past week — triggered by a coughing episode she experienced during a Labor Day rally.
That talk was largely confined to Republicans convinced that Clinton has long been hiding some sort of serious illness. I wrote dismissively of that conspiracy theory in this space last week, noting that Clinton had been given an entirely clean bill of health by her doctors after an episode in which she fainted, suffered a concussion and then was found to have a blood clot in late 2012 and early 2013.
Coughing, I wrote, is simply not evidence enough of any sort of major illness that Clinton is assumed to be hiding. Neither, of course, is feeling “overheated.” But those two things happening within six days of each other to a candidate who is 68 years old makes talk of Clinton’s health no longer just the stuff of conspiracy theorists.
Whereas Clinton and her campaign could laugh off questions about her health before today, the “overheating” episode makes it almost impossible for them to do so. Not only has it come at a time when there was growing chatter — with very little evidence — that her health was a problem but it also happened at a 9/11 memorial event — an incredibly high-profile moment with lots and lots of cameras and reporters around.
Her campaign may well try to dismiss this story as nothing more than an isolated incident, meaning nothing. (Democrats were already pushing the story of George W. Bush fainting in 2002 after choking on a pretzel, via Twitter.)
But the issue is that Clinton kept reporters totally in the dark for 90 minutes after her abrupt departure from the 9/11 memorial service for a health-related matter. No reporter was allowed to follow her. (Clinton has resisted a protective pool for coverage because Donald Trump refuses to participate in one.) This is, yet again, the Clinton campaign asking everyone to just trust it. She got overheated! But she’s fine now!
Clinton may well be totally fine — and I certainly hope she is. But we are 58 days away from choosing the person who will lead the country for the next four years, and she is one of the two candidates with a real chance of winning. Taking the Clinton team’s word for it on her health — in light of the episode on Sunday morning — is no longer enough. Reasonable people can — and will — have real questions about her health.
“Clarification from dem operatives @HillaryClinton pneumonia: Expect emergency DNC meeting to CONSIDER replacement,” MSNBC David Shuster tweeted Sunday evening.
The Clinton camp has insisted the nominee has no serious health problems and that attention to the issue amounts to right-wing conspiracy-mongering. But the latest incident has even mainstream media outlets like The Washington Post finally acknowledging the legitimacy of Clinton’s health concerns as an election issue.
…The once unthinkable idea of the scandal-marred 2016 bid of Hillary Clinton being prematurely ended by a medical collapse has suddenly become an actual possibility. Democrats would have to be ready to replace her atop their ticket.
The move would be unprecedented on the presidential level in modern history, but despite the fact some states are already voting and most have certified ballots, the precedents that do exist suggest Dems could still pull off a nominee swap. A move like that could clear the way for a Democratic white knight candidate like Vice President Joe Biden.
The rules of the party itself are straightforward enough. The Democratic Party chair could call a special meeting to fill a vacancy on the national ticket. But the ballots already have been certified in a majority of states.
Based on precedent in non-presidential races, though, the party likely would be able to force states to change their ballots anyway.
The jig is up.
The vultures are circling the Clinton Campaign
In our present age, with advent of the New Media, which has made Americans their own reporters, it has made keeping anything out of the public eye very difficult, as the Clinton Campaign has found out.
The obviously feeble condition of Hillary Clinton’s health has been the topic of discussion across the Nation for the last few weeks.
And, rightfully so.
The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position in the world.
America is still looked upon as the Bastion of Freedom and the Land of Opportunity, even after the poor stewardship of President Barack Hussein Obama over the last almost 8 years.
Quite frankly, the President of the United States of America is expected to keep outrageous working hours in order to perform the duties of the office.
Obama has chosen not to
Hillary will not be physically able to.
Her health condition alone should disqualify her from seeking the office of the presidency of United States.
However, just like FDR, before her, Hillary’s enablers, including the Main Stream Media, are trying their best to cover up her serious medical condition.
Their attempts have failed, leading to a spectacular display of Karma at the 9/11 Memorial Service in New York City, yesterday.
As the last several weeks have shown, and as I have documented, Americans have become our own “reporters” thanks to the “New Media”.
Americans are now living in a time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.
This has forced some in the Main Stream Media to actually do their job, including Chris Cilizza.
As we enter the Fourth Quarter of the 2016 Presidential Campaign, questions about the Hillary’s Health in an intentional cover-up of the severity of the situation remain.
However, as Americans observed for themselves yesterday…sunlight is always the best disinfectant.
Whether Clinton’s mental and physical issues are the result of the effects of a lifetime of alcoholism, as has been rumored, or, the effects of some sort of congenital disease, does not matter at this point.
The cold, harsh reality is the fact that America simply cannot afford to elect a Marxist-Alinsky-ite, whose health is failing, as our next President.
Morally, ethically, mentally, and physically, Hillary Clinton is unfit to occupy the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America.
The Democrats now must decide rather or not to keep riding a lame horse.
Until He Comes,
