“I can remember reading magazines back in 1992 that cataloged all the people the Clintons knew who had died, and the inherent conspiracies that were associated with this. And, lo and behold, here we go again.”…Rush Limbaugh August 10, 2016
“The main stream media has been doing it’s best to hide the truth about Hillary Clinton’s rapidly deteriorating health, but it’s getting to be a harder and harder trick to continue to pull off. Just yesterday the Twitterverse lit up with photographs of her seemingly unable to make it up a flight of steps as seen here”…nowtheendbegins.com
“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells
According to Politico on July 31, 2015, the famous Hillary Clinton health report letter from Dr. Lisa Bardack was released by her campaign.
“Hillary Clinton is a healthy 67-year-old woman who suffers from hypothyroidism, seasonal allergies and takes blood thinners as a precaution against clots, according to a two-page letter from her personal physician released Friday afternoon by her campaign.
“Her cancer screening evaluations are all negative,” Dr. Lisa Bardack, chair of internal medicine at the Mount Kisco Medical Group, and Clinton’s physician since 2001, wrote, summarizing Clinton’s health history. “She is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States.”
In releasing Clinton’s health records, her campaign is hoping to show off a greater level of transparency than any of its rivals. The campaign noted that the former secretary of state is the first 2016 presidential candidate to release health history, a step usually conducted only after a candidate has become its party’s nominee.”
The letter can be viewed here:
This was accepted as Gospel and used as a comparison to the alleged medical records released on Twitter.
What proof do we have that the letter is legitimate.
I am reminded of the Obama campaign in 2008 releasing a non legitimate form of proof of US birth for Obama.
- Just because something is a conspiracy theory does not mean it is not true.
- I will present facts.
Let’s begin with the alleged Dr. Bardack letter.
According to Snopes, the alleged leaked medical records used the title “Chairman” instead of “Chair” which is used on the letter.
From the website of Dr. Bardack’s employer, which is now called Mount Sinai Health System at CareMount Medical:
“Chairman of the Department of Medicine, CareMount Medical”
Snopes seems to believe this is important.
Does that mean the letter is forged?
Here is one of the aspects of the alleged letter that bothered me the most:
“She is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States.”
Dr’ Bardack’s specialty is listed as Internal Medicine. I see no reference to psychology credentials. And even if she had that expertise, what would make her qualified to state “fit to serve as President of the United States.”
It appears to me that what should have been written, if accurate, is that she is physically fit to be president.
Based on what we know, that is doubtful.
Without going any deeper, this is what we know about the letter:
- Snopes believes that “Chairman” on the alleged medical records is incorrect even though it matches the company website. http://www.caremountmedical.com/directory/people/show/lisa-bardack/
- The letter states that Hillary is fit to be president even though the doctor is not qualified to make that determination.
- There is no, to my knowledge, confirmation that Dr. Lisa Gartman wrote that letter.
The alleged medical records released on Twitter.
I agree with Snopes. They are alleged and we have no more proof of their being real than we do of the letter.
They do however have the same nomenclature of the company website, ‘Chairman.”
They have no outlandish claim such as Hillary being fit for the presidency.
The medical conclusions are real and appear to match what is being observed about Hillary’s behaviour.
At this point I must believe that the alleged medical records have as much credence as the alleged letter.
Now to the death.
A real Mount Kisco resident died shortly before the alleged medical records were released, Vincent Fleck.
“69-year-old dies during swim portion of New York triathlon”
“Authorities said Vincent Fleck, of Mount Kisco, died after a lifeguard noticed him in distress.”
“Police said it was unknown if Fleck drowned or if he suffered a medical event. The Suffolk County Medical Examiner was set to do an autopsy to determine the cause of death.”
From his obituary.
“Vincent John Fleck, a resident of Mount Kisco and a former resident of Ossining, passed away on Sunday, August 7, 2016.
Vincent was the beloved father of Daniel and Jocelyn.”
There are numerous internet rumors and articles swirling about attempting to link the death of Vincent Fleck or his son to the alleged medical records release.
There was a theft of a laptop computer from the downtown area of Mount Kisco.
I will leave that to the reader to ponder.
