“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

“millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.”…NBC News October 29, 2013

 

The Obamacare debacle, sticker shock and tragedy began long before Donald Trump ran for office.

This was the doing of Barack Obama and the Democrats.

As predicted by their behavior  patterns, they screw things up and then create a narrative to shift the blame to Republicans.

They have had great success in the past due to their dumbed down sheeple followers.

From the Charlotte Observer May 9, 2018.

“Get ready for Obamacare sticker shock”

“States across the country, including North Carolina, can expect similar proposed hikes in coming months. Obamacare sticker shock is coming, and it’s going to hit rural areas especially hard.”

“When Republicans repealed Obamacare’s individual mandate, they changed the economic viability of the Affordable Care Act, which counted on healthy people’s premiums defraying some of the cost of insuring the less than healthy. In addition, the Trump administration scrapped subsidies to insurers and gave healthy folks more reason to leave the exchanges by allowing insurers greater room to offer thinner policies that cost less money.”

” It will be an election issue in November, and voters should remember this: Obamacare needed tweaks, but it was working, despite what the president and Republicans have long claimed. Millions more Americans had health care coverage. That coverage included benefits that insurance companies largely didn’t offer before Obamacare. Also, insurance premiums were rising at a rate lower than the years before the Affordable Care Act was enacted.

Now, for many, those premiums are about to go way up, and insurers are being given more leeway to offer less. What’s old is new again. And it’s exactly what Republicans wanted.”

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/opinion/article210686554.html

You notice right off that the Orwellian weasles state “get ready” to shift the narrative out of the past to the future.

“they changed the economic viability of the Affordable Care Act” It was never viable!

“Now, for many, those premiums are about to go way up” NOW???

The Greensboro News Record, predictably, repeats the big lie.

“ACA sticker shock is coming”

“For many, those premiums are about to go way up, and insurers will be able to offer less. And it’s exactly what Republicans wanted.”

http://www.greensboro.com/opinion/columns/other-opinions-aca-sticker-shock-is-coming/article_8fed46ac-f056-5ecb-adb0-12f20a397550.html

As I recall, a repeal of Obamacare was what the Republicans wanted. The Democrats blocked it.

“Another day, another study confirming that ObamaCare will increase the price of health insurance. The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association has found that premiums in the individual market will rise on average by 54% over the status quo, which translates into an extra $3,341 a year for families and $1,576 for singles. The White House denounced the report as a “sham” before it was even released, which shows how seriously it takes such concerns.”

From the Huffington Post June 23, 2010.

“EPA Study: Autism Boom Began in 1988, Environmental Factors Are Assumed

If it seems like most of the people you know with autism are 22 or younger, that’s because most people diagnosed with autism were born after 1987. A recent US EPA studyhas found a distinct “changepoint” year – or spike – in autism in California and elsewhere and concludes that it would be “prudent to assume that at least some portion of this increase is real and results from environmental factors.”

“In the Danish, California, and worldwide data sets, we found that an increase in autism disorder cumulative incidence began about (the birth cohort years) 1988-1989,” wrote the authors Michael E. Mc Donald and John F. Paul, of the EPA’s National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory.

“Although the debate about the nature of increasing autism continues,” they added, “the potential for this increase to be real and involve exogenous (external) environmental stressors exists.”

But it was the distinct timing in the increase of autism – the birth of an epidemic, as many believe – that was most notable, and which “may help in screening for potential candidate environmental stressors.”

“The calculated year was determined to be significant,” the EPA scientists said. The rate of increase before 1988 “was significantly different” than the rate after that year (the “postchangepoint,” in epidemiology parlance). In California, the rate spiked from 5.7-per-10,000 before the changepoint, to 20.8-per 10,000 in its wake, and the worldwide dataset showed a similar jump (from 6.0 to 24.2). In Denmark, the rise was even more dramatic, though total incidence was only a fraction of that in the US: from 0.6 to 6.6.”

“As they wrote:

Although artifacts associated with observed increases in various studies cannot be ruled out, from a precautionary standpoint, it seems prudent to assume that at least some portion of this increase in incidence is real and results from environmental factors interacting with susceptible populations. As such exposure is potentially preventable, identification of relevant candidate environmental factors should be a research priority.

Meanwhile, the scientists were surprised to find such similar changepoint years in California, Denmark and the worldwide dataset, although they conceded the data were consistent with similar studies done in Minnesota and Sweden, and a third US nationwide study which found, “the greatest increase in ASD prevalence occurring in cohorts born between 1987 and 1992.”

There are many external factors that could be associated with autism, the authors said, so knowing when the explosion in cases began should help narrow down the long list of suspects.

“Future studies should examine for novel or increasing exposures to environmental factors from gestation to at least age three for our calculated 1988-1989 birth cohorts,” the authors wrote. “Assuming a dose-response relationship, a candidate factor would have continued to increase in the environment from the late 1980s through at least the mid-1990s.”

But what could it (or they) be? According to the EPA:

  • Any candidate must be a substance or substances whose exposure level dramatically increased in developed countries beginning at the 1988 changepoint.
  • The candidate will likely be something whose exposure level was greater in California than in Denmark between 1988 and 1997.
  • The candidate is likely something that was introduced in developing countries later than California, Japan and Denmark. For example, a recent Hong Kong study “is suggestive of a rise in autism, but beginning more recently than our calculated changepoints.”
  • The candidate “would need to be disruptive to early human neural development.”
  • The candidate would need to have a route of exposure “consistent with bioavailability to fetuses and infants.”
  • The candidate would need to have increasing levels of US exposure between 1988 and at least 1995.
  • The potential for exposure to a variety of environmental factors “acting synergistically on susceptible populations also cannot be ruled out.”

The authors suggested an initial toxicological screening for potential autism-trigger candidates using the CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry or similar data sets.”

“Here are just some of the areas where science is looking:”

“VACCINES AND UNDERLYING DISORDERS – In January of this year, the Institute of Medicine’s Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines issued its “Working list of adverse events to be considered.” Included in the adverse events associated with the DTaP and MMR vaccines were “autism” and “Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)/Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD).” Interestingly, the IOM Committee said it would consider investigating so-called “Secondary” autism, or “autistic features arising from chronic encephalopathy, mitochondrial disorders and/or other underlying disorders.” In other words, vaccines don’t cause autism, but they might cause brain disease in certain predisposed kids, and that might lead to autism.

VACCINES AND IMMUNE STRESS – As for “Primary” autism, the IOM has been asked by the Federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP, or Vaccine Court) to consider reviewing all the medical literature since the 2004 IOM report that found no link. “In particular, VICP is interested in the Committee’s review on more recent theories of ‘neuroinflammation’ and ‘hyperarousal/overexcitation of the immune system via multiple simultaneous antigenic stimulation.” In other words, getting too many shots at once might cause an inappropriate neuro-immune response, such as that sometimes reported in autism.

VACCINES AND VIRAL PARTICLES – A brand new study reported finding pig and monkey viral particles in a number of vaccines. In the MMR II and Varivax (Chicken Pox) vaccines, researchers detected human endogenous retrovirus K, or HERV-K. The retrovirus was a “consequence of their manufacture using human cell lines.” A 2001 study of genes and autism reports on the development of “frozen blocks of DNA” caused by imperfect gene duplication. “It appears that human endogenous retroviruses (HERV) and
HERV fragments are involved,” the authors wrote. “The long version of the C4 gene, for
example, results from the integration of an HERV-K.”

Do vaccines and vaccine ingredients belong on the list of candidates? Many people say no, but the IOM and the VICP say yes.

I agree with the experts. And now that we have a “changepoint” of 1988, we should go back and look at vaccine exposures both pre- and post- changepoint. Between 1988 and 1996, the following vaccines were added to the US schedule for children in the first 15 months of life:

  • HiB – Improved Hib conjugate vaccine licensed in December 1987, and single dose added to childhood schedule in 1988.
  • DTaP – Additional dose at younger age added around 1990.
  • HiB – Three additional doses added to schedule in 1991.
  • Hep B – Three doses – Added to childhood schedule in 1992.
  • Chicken Pox – Approved in 1995, added to schedule in 1996

1988 was a very interesting year, and those children have a lot to tell us. Let’s listen.”

Is there a cause and effect relationship between flu vaccines and Autism?

Dr. David Brownstein, Board-Certified family physician.

“The flu vaccine is a toxic mess that can contain mercury and other unwanted substances that should never be injected into any living being.  The flu vaccine has been around for many years and has never been shown to be very effective at preventing the flu.”

https://www.drbrownstein.com/flu-vaccine-moderately-effective-fake-news/\

Reverend Lisa Sykes, author of “Sacred Spark.”

“Lie #2 “Mercury was removed from all childhood vaccines in (pick any year between 1999 and the present).”

“The Facts: After “realizing” the amount of mercury in the childhood vaccination schedule recommended by the CDC exceeded all national and global maximum safety limits, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the United States Public Health Service called for the immediate removal of Thimerosal from all vaccines on July 7, 1999.

By 2003, the vaccine manufacturers had begun to react to the 1999 call by lowering the mercury content in many of the Thimerosal-preserved early childhood vaccines. However, in April of 2002, the CDC began recommending that pregnant women and very young children get annual Thimerosal-preserved flu shots. The result was a ‘shell game’ which has caused widespread confusion in the public because of press reports declaring, “Since (select a year between 1999 and the present), mercury has been removed from all recommended vaccines for children except for some flu shots.”

I am not stating that flu vaccines are a cause of autism but I do question the widespread use especially in small children and pregnant women.

Personally I have never had one and do not intend to have one.

More questions should be asked and more real science should be applied.

Mr. Trump, I urge you to get more involved.

There is an epidemic of stupid in this country.

I see it every day.

There is one example of this that continues to haunt me because it affects the  youngest members of our society who depend on adults for protection.

Autism spectrum, irresponsible vaccine protocols and general failure to regulate what small children ingest such as mother’s milk.

AND, this is just as important, criticizing/crucifying those such as Robert Kennedy Jr. who question what we are doing to our children.

THOUGHT CRIMINALS!

The incidence of Autism and Autism Spectrum has been on the rise for decades.

We are doing something wrong!

When I pulled up the CNN report on the recent increase in Autism reports, the following appeared on the same screen.

“Largest child sacrifice in history discovered in Peru”

https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/27/americas/peru-largest-child-sacrifice/index.html

HOW IRONIC!

From CNN April 26, 2018.

“Autism prevalence increases: 1 in 59 US children”

“One in 59 US children has autism, according to a new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new estimate is a prevalence rate of 1.7%, up from one in every 68 children (1.5%) in the 2016 report, which was based on data from 2012. The new figure was derived from 2014 estimates for 8-year-olds diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder in 11 communities across the nation.
The new estimate represents a 15% increase from two years prior and a 150% increase since 2000.”

I am not against vaccines.

I am against stupid.

Our vaccine protocols are stupid!

I know this from reading and research and first hand during doctor visits.

We are bombarding very young infants with too many vaccinations. Many of them are not life saving or age appropriate.

Those vaccines which prevent life threatening diseases should be administered as the clear lesser of evils and spread out to lessen chances of harmful impacts that we apparently still don’t understand.

From a NIH ( National Institute of Health ) paper Sept. 2010:

“Another example of an organic mercury compound is ethyl mercury or thiomersal (referred to as thimerosal in the USA), which is used as a preservative in some vaccines.”

“Acute or chronic mercury exposure can cause adverse effects during any period of development. Mercury is a highly toxic element; there is no known safe level of exposure. Ideally, neither children nor adults should have any mercury in their bodies because it provides no physiological benefit.”

The correlations to a higher incidence of Autism are clear.

My disability how it affected me and how I was treated by the disability insurance company and social security disability, Delay and deny incompetence and evil, What I will eventually write will shock and infuriate you

My disability how it affected me and how I was treated by the disability insurance company and social security disability, Delay and deny incompetence and evil, What I will eventually write will shock and infuriate you

“Insurance Companies Practice Deny & Delay Tactics”…The Deutermann Law Group

“Some critics say being barred from court discourages complaints, and some of those barred from court say they don’t trust the arbitration system enough to pursue it. Joseph Belth, a retired professor of insurance at Indiana University and editor of a widely read industry newsletter, calls the ability of fraternals to unilaterally change dispute-resolution rules for policyholders “an outrage.””…WSJ May 30, 2006

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”…Ephesians 6:12

 

 

My disability, how it affected me and how I was treated by the Disability insurance company and Social Security Disability.

Prior to my disability, I had been active all of my life, had only been to the hospital for sports injuries and had worked hard mentally and physically.

My disability event happened on February 27, 2009.

After 2 initial filings for disability claims and a letter from an attorney, my claim was denied.

The claim has been ongoing since then and I have had legal representation for over a year.

I vowed that no matter how this played out, I would expose the mistreatment I received from the disability insurance company.

Since the claim process is ongoing, I will report what I am able to reveal.

Here is the general sequence of events:

I was upstairs and alone.

I felt a numbness beginning in my right foot which began to spread up my right side.

I walked a short distance to the bedroom and laid down.

I was thinking stroke but tried to remain calm.

I called my lady friend who called her physician father on the west coast.

She arrived home and immediately took me to the emergency room a short distance away.

They triaged me for stroke which thank God it wasn’t, ran some more tests and kept me overnight.

The numbness all along my right side began to go away overnight except for my right foot, which remains with me today.

It wasn’t just numbness but there was also pain. The closest analogy I can think of is when your hands get numb and painful from making snowballs too long.

From the time that I left the hospital I was forced to keep my right leg propped up and pretty soon my lower back beagn hurting.

I was in pain during the day and my sleep was difficult at night.

A few days later I had an appointment with the attending physician, who I had never met before the hospital visit. He began talking about taking vitamins and quite frankly did not impress me.

After the second visit and my insistence, he referred me to a podiatrist.

The podiatrist was competent and immediately referred me to a spine specialist.

The spine spcialists examined me and took xrays. They found compression and fusion in my lower back. They also gave me an injection for pain which did little to help.

On the next visit they ran point to point tests from my lower spine to my foot.
.
Their conclusion was atypical neuropathy.

I had contacted my disability insurance company earlier to inform them of what had happened and they sent claim forms.

I filed claims with them twice and on both occasions the spine specialists indicated “no work.”

After the second denial I had an attorney write an excellent letter to no avail (except for documentation).

I also filed an online claim with Social Security Disability. More on this later.

Knowing what I know now, I would have immediately contacted an attorney to handle this case.

There were multiple reasons why I did not.

First of all, this was a fraternal plan I had paid on for 25 years. I was in disbelief, shock as well as pain. I could not trust them.

Also in the contract you agree to go through a process of appeal, mediation and binding arbitration. I should have had an attorney handle that.

After months of diagnosis, filing claims and dealing with the pain I had to protect myself. Thank God I had assets. I got by on savings, disposal of assets and eventually early Social Security retirement at a reduced amount.

I was able to make payments on the house I moved back into after my lady (fair weather) friend broke things off and my car.

I am one of the fortunate ones.

The TV ads daily reveal those who were helped by an attorney or they would have gone under financially.

Once again, I am blessed. But I was devastated financially.

Medicare was a blessing. With the great supplement a friend recommended, I was able to get a knee replacement for my other knee.

Exercise became part of my therapy to reduce the pain. I was then able to resume it.

What the disability company did was wrong, evil.

I am not going to let them get away with this, for myself and others.

More on this when I am able.

Trump wisely confers with Kennedy and Wakefield on vaccination issues, Politico more concerned with attacking Trump than truth, NIH paper: “Mercury is a highly toxic element; there is no known safe level of exposure”, “neither children nor adults should have any mercury in their bodies”

“Why are we knowingly injecting mercury in multiple doses into babies and not testing mother’s milk?”…Citizen Wells

“Thimerosal is 50% ethylmercury, which is far more toxic and persistent in the brain than the highly regulated methylmercury in fish. Hundreds of peer reviewed studies by leading government and university scientists show that thimerosal is a devastating brain poison linked to neurological disorders now epidemic in American children.”…Robert F.  Kennedy, Jr.

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

 

I have been reading and researching about vaccinations and other environmental hazards and the possible link to autism and other neurological disorders for years. More recently I have read about levels of mercury and other harmful substances in mothers milk.

I have come to the conclusion that we are not protecting the young from the ingestion or intake of harmful substances.

During the election cycle I was pleased to hear Donald Trump and others running for the presidency question our vaccination policies. They were right to do so.

Somebody has got to look out for those who cannot speak for themselves, the very young.

I was even more pleased several days ago when Trump met with Robert Kennedy Jr and then stated he wanted further input from Kennedy and Andrew Wakefield.

Both men have been criticized for questioning our vaccination policies but I have read some of their positions and I agree with many of them.

Where is some of the criticism coming from?

Follow the money.

Now comes Politico and their agenda. Criticizing Donald Trump fits in nicely.

From Politico January 12, 2017.

 

Of all Donald Trump’s conspiratorial obsessions, perhaps one of the most dangerous has been his long promotion of the much-debunked theory that vaccines cause autism.

For years, his distrust of vaccines had been an occasional curiosity of his Twitter feed, nestled between bromides against Rosie O’Donnell and boasts about his ratings on “Celebrity Apprentice.” “Healthy young child goes to doctor, gets pumped with massive shot of many vaccines, doesn’t feel good and changes – AUTISM. Many such cases!” he tweeted in March 2014. “I am being proven right about massive vaccinations—the doctors lied. Save our children & their future,” he wrote months later.

Then, during a Republican primary debate in September 2015—well before anyone really thought he could be America’s next president—Trump brought his vaccine beliefs to the national political stage. “You take this little beautiful baby, and you pump—I mean, it looks like just it’s meant for a horse and not for a child,” he said. “We had so many instances, people that work for me, just the other day, 2 years old, a beautiful child, went to have the vaccine and came back and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick. Now is autistic.”

Each time his beliefs have come up, journalists and the medical and scientific community have dutifully noted that Trump is wrong—the evidence clearly shows no link between vaccines and autism. Now, Trump is going to be the president of the United States, and doctors and scientists are raising the alarm about the potential consequences of having a man in charge of the country’s public health system who dabbles in discredited scientific theories.

Those concerns only grew on Tuesday, when Trump met with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental lawyer who has long been immersed in those discredited theories. Kennedy told reporters at Trump Tower that he was responding to a summons by the president-elect. His goal in meeting with Trump, he said, was “to make sure we have scientific integrity in the vaccine process for efficacy and safety of vaccines.”

As for Trump, Kennedy said, he “has some doubts about the current vaccine policies and he has questions about it.” He added: “His opinion doesn’t matter but the science does matter and we ought to be reading the science and we ought to be debating the science. And that everybody ought to be able to be assured that the vaccines that we have—he’s very pro-vaccine, as am I—but they’re as safe as they possibly can be.”

For those not steeped in the language of vaccine debates, Kennedy was using a familiar canard: that he’s not anti-vaccine, but rather provaccinesafety. In reality, all scientists are for safe vaccines. What Kennedy’s comment really means is that he is unwilling to accept the scientific evidence showing that today’s vaccines are already as safe as they possibly can be.

Which is why the news of the meeting—and Kennedy’s subsequent confirmation on Thursday that he will leave his environmental group to chair a vaccine safety commission for the president—has sparked immediate condemnation from experts in the medical and scientific communities, who worry about what Trump’s choice of advisers says about his public health agenda. While the power Trump or any of his aides has to directly influence vaccine policy is limited, a White House team set on questioning established vaccine science does have the potential to cause significant harm to public health by sowing doubts and wasting scientific resources better spent elsewhere. Increasing pockets of vaccine hesitancy and refusal in southern California, helped by outspoken vaccine critics such as Bob Sears, enabled the Disneyland measles outbreak to spread as far as it did, revealed a study several months later. Other studies have shown clear correlations between pertussis and measles outbreaks and higher rates of exemptions that allow parents to opt out of vaccines required for school.

“Clearly Donald Trump has questions about vaccine safety—he made that clear in the first debate—but I still would have imagined he would have sought out some level of expertise,” says Paul Offit, chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and co-developer of the rotavirus vaccine. “There is an enormous amount of expertise about vaccines in this country. Instead, he picks [to advise him] two people—Andrew Wakefield and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.—who both have no expertise and, frankly, are conspiracy theorists.” Wakefield is the discredited British researcher who initially tried to link autism with the measles-mumps-rubella virus in a study that was retracted and has since been debunked by dozens more studies. Wakefield, who met with Trump last summer, was found to have committed fraud and lost his medical license, but anti-vaccine advocates believe he was wronged and continue to reject the scientific consensus against his ideas.”

“This kind of disregard for accepted science—and Trump’s embrace of ithas experts in the scientific community worried. Even forming a commission on autism and vaccines without Kennedy’s involvement would be counterproductive at best and harmful at worst, says Mark Schleiss, division director of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.”

Oh really?

From a NIH ( National Institute of Health ) paper Sept. 2010.

“Mercury Exposure and Children’s Health”

“Acute or chronic mercury exposure can cause adverse effects during any period of development. Mercury is a highly toxic element; there is no known safe level of exposure. Ideally, neither children nor adults should have any mercury in their bodies because it provides no physiological benefit. Prenatal and postnatal mercury exposures occur frequently in many different ways. Pediatricians, nurses, and other health care providers should understand the scope of mercury exposures and health problems among children and be prepared to handle mercury exposures in medical practice. Prevention is the key to reducing mercury poisoning. Mercury exists in different chemical forms: elemental (or metallic), inorganic, and organic (methylmercury and ethyl mercury). Mercury exposure can cause acute and chronic intoxication at low levels of exposure. Mercury is neuro-, nephro-, and immunotoxic. The development of the child in utero and early in life is at particular risk. Mercury is ubiquitous and persistent. Mercury is a global pollutant, bio-accumulating, mainly through the aquatic food chain, resulting in a serious health hazard for children. This article provides an extensive review of mercury exposure and children’s health.”

“Mercury is a silvery-white shiny heavy metal with unique chemical and physical properties. It has been used worldwide for many centuries for commercial and medicinal purposes.1,2 Mercury is a persistent and globally cycling element. Mercury occurs not only anthropogenically but also naturally.3,4 It has toxic properties and severely affects the environment and humans, especially developing fetuses and infants.3

“There are 3 main forms of mercury that differ with respect to their toxicokinetics regarding absorption, distribution, and accumulation in the human body; related health outcomes; and the extent of cycling in the environment. Elemental mercury is liquid at room temperature, and in this form, is less toxic than inorganic or organic bound mercury. It has a high vapor pressure. If heated, mercury evaporates and becomes highly toxic. Metallic mercury is lipophilic and is stored in fatty tissues.4 Inorganic ions of mercury vary in water solubility. In general, divalent mercuric salts are soluble in water. The high toxicity of mercuric ions can be explained by the high affinity to sulfhydryl groups of amino acids, which are building blocks for enzymes. In organic mercury compounds, mercury is covalently bound to carbon. Organic mercury is the most dangerous form of mercury to human health. Methylmercury, the most predominant form of organic mercury, is the form that poses a risk through fish consumption. Methylmercury is better absorbed and shows a higher mobility in the human body than inorganic mercury. Another example of an organic mercury compound is ethyl mercury or thiomersal (referred to as thimerosal in the USA), which is used as a preservative in some vaccines.”

“Guarding Hillary’s health
How Hillary’s health problems make her unfit for the presidency”

“How Hillary’s health problems make her unfit for the presidency

Among all the recent WikiLeaks email dumps, perhaps the most important one of all has been overlooked by the mainstream media.

In it, Neera Tanden, Hillary Clinton’s longtime political guru, warned campaign manager John Podesta not to raise the question of primary opponent Bernie Sanders’ health because it would draw unwanted attention to the hidden truth about Hillary’s health.

“Hard to think of anything more counter-productive than demanding Bernie’s medical records,” Mr. Tanden emailed Mr. Podesta, according to an email obtained by WikiLeaks from Mr. Podesta’s personal inbox.”

“Mr. Obama and Ms. Jarrett have been so worried about Hillary’s health that they recently offered to arrange a secret medical checkup for her at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Hillary declined their offer because she feared a leak to the media would prove fatal to her presidential campaign. Instead, she has been secretly visiting the New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where she arrives through a private entrance out of public sight and where she can rely on her doctors not to speak to the media.

Sources close to Hillary tell me that her doctors have discovered she suffers from arrhythmia (an abnormal heart beat) and a leaking heart valve. They have recommended that she consider having valve replacement surgery, but Hillary has refused because she does not want to risk the negative political fallout from stories about such a serious operation.

In addition to the arrhythmia and leaking heart valve, Hillary suffers from chronic low blood pressure, insufficient blood flow, a tendency to form life-threatening blood clots, and troubling side effects from her medications.

Her doctors have prescribed Coumadin, a blood thinner, and a beta blocker to treat her condition. However, these medications make her drowsy and tired, lower her blood pressure, and have led to frequent bouts of light-headedness and fainting spells.

Hillary has suffered at least five fainting spells that the public is aware of, including the most recent one at the 15th anniversary memorial service of 9/11.

In addition, there have been many other incidents of fainting that have been hidden from the public.
For example, after her 11-hour testimony before the Trey Gowdy Benghazi committee, Hillary swooned as she walked to her waiting Secret Service SUV and had to be carried into the back seat by her aides.

Among Hillary’s friends, it is common knowledge that she suffers from tension headaches, sits with her feet elevated, nods off to sleep while studying her speeches, gets dizzy and has frequently stumbled and fallen at her home in Chappaqua. She asks her closest aide, Huma Abedin, to rub her shoulders and bring her cold compresses for her neck and forehead.
“Huma always kneels down, whispers to her, rubs her shoulders, and comforts her,” said one of Hillary’s closest friends. “Huma seems genuinely alarmed at her condition, and looks agonized as well.

“Hillary also has a masseuse on call to work on her legs, which give her almost constant pain,” this friend continued. “It reminds me of what I read about Jack Kennedy’s constant back problems and how they were always hidden from the public.
“Hillary’s campaign people are well aware of her problem and are doing everything possible to make her schedule as easy as possible, but it’s hard to run for president and not work hard and spend a lot of time on your feet and constantly get photographed.”
