Hillary Clinton hospitalized with blood clot
Washington Post, by Karen DeYoung

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 12/31/2012 6:40:35 AM

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was hospitalized in New York on Sunday after doctors monitoring her recovery from a concussion discovered a blood clot, according to a statement from her office. The statement said that “in the course of a follow-up exam, Secretary Clinton’s doctors discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago. She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours.

I´m still not buying this. Call me a "hard-sell" where this nefarious bunch is concerned. They are avoiding accountability at any cost.

It sounds fishy to me too. How many doctors give patients an appointment on Sunday? Either she went in on an emergency or she is faking it. As long as they continue to keep the truth from the Press, they will make stuff up. PS: Heard she was at a party this weekend.

An entirely new defense for the "I can´t recall" response to interrogative questions posed. Even in her weakened position, it is a brilliant tactic. When God asks, she will have a perfect recollection. Won´t we all?

I wondered what the next ecuse would be when GOP senators wouldn´t hold hearings on Kerry until PIAPS gave a full account of Benghazi.I didn´t think they would come up with something this dramatic,even co-opting doctors at a hospital.They´re saying the clot was discovered in a follow up exam which is a surprise to me,since she never went to a hospital to begin with.

I did see a supermarket tab say the other day that she had a brain cancer scare,for whatever that´s worth.

The bandages had to stay on a couple more days.

What public figure of her stature moves around surreptitiously from home to hospital and back presumably with family coming and going to visit, all without any hospital or doctor statements or media video whatsoever. The corrupt news media´s coverage of this high government official´s medical treatment for weeks(!) isn´t even worthy of a banana republic.

Again, me thinks the bandages needed to stay on a bit longer.

You don´t anticoagulate for "blood clots" to the head. That might only make things worse. You do anticoagulate for blood clots to the legs (DVT) or lungs (PE), but I´m not sure why these would have occurred due to a gastroenteritis or a fall.

More questions need to be asked, but of course, they won´t.

This may be the first time I have ever felt sorry for Hillary. She is easily accessible in a public place where anyone in scrubs could put something in her IV.
The CIA is terrified of what she might reveal about their meddling in foreign wars if she ever stands up and walks out of there. Wouldn´t want to be her!

I expect this blood clot to travel to her brain, encounter the worms there, and stroke her out. She´ll recover, but she´ll be paralyzed from her vocal cords down ... temporarily, of course, until she´s safely off the hot seat.

Anyone notice how John Kerry so quickly agreed that his confirmation hearings should wait until after Hill has testified? Doesn´t anyone find that odd? He knows she won´t testify. He´ll get itchy to get into the job, and start pushing to excuse her from testifying completely. ´Have a heart! Some respect! Poor Mz. Clinton is ILL! Geez, you Republicans are mean!´

And what Wepubbican will refuse him? He´ll be on the job in no time.

Look -- IF -- and I say IF -- she is ill -- she´s not gonna be an "indestructible" candidate for 2016.....

So -- if this is a campaign calculation -- it´s stupid. IF it´s an attempt to cover/up her role in Bengahzi -- shame on her. She still will stand before GOD and try and defend her role in the deaths.....There is no "affirmative action" in heaven....

The press is already doing the CYA for her.
A "follow up" visit with her doctor?? There is no evidence she saw a doctor after her fall.
Pay close attention to media stories which are elaborating on a fairy tale.
AND a doctor just doesn´t "discover" a blood clot..either she was stroked out, or the clot is in her lung.

to all of us who wonder and doubt, it´s really a shame and a pity that our government is so untrustworthy that a potential life threatening episode is viewed with a jaundiced eye by so many. For anyone else, this news would give rise to empathy and concern. These people? Not so much.

The money quote FTA: republicans have said that they are likely to hold up Kerry’s nomination hearing until Clinton testifies about the Benghazi attack, but the impact of this new disclosure was unclear.

Until or unless we hear from actual physicians (who - lets face it - could also be compromised), this is all about Benghazi and the Kerry confirmation...

#8, #10: Exactly. The media was reporting a concussion diagnosis *before* she went to a hospital. Not a single journalist noticed or was curious about her going to a hospital?
A "fall" of this kind, resulting in a concussion and a clot, must have surely left some bruises and scrapes.
This is Clinton Classic. Wag the dog. Put the story out there, and then tweak the "facts" to fit later.

This newest revelation of a pesky clot must be a response/counter to the condition Kerry won´t be confirmed until she testifies. It´s like a cold or secret war between the yes she wills and the no she won´ts.

Isn´t a scab a blood clot? It is probably her description of the scab on the head wound she gave herself so she would not have to testify. I find it ironic that her ´blood clot´ is holding up the confirmation of John ´blood clot´ Kerry - the man that got three purple hearts for his ´blood clots´ on the outside of his skin.

The favored treatment for a subdural hematoma was not administering anticoagulants, at least when I was nursing, and especially this long after the "head injury." Even if they were giving tPA or streptokinase, these are drugs that are supposed to be given as soon after the event as possible. I don´t believe this story.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

Charles Murray´s Gay-Marriage Surprise

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

Obama in Jerusalem

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

I hope I´m not too late to the fight.Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul´s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn´t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with "lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial."

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
