All of the alleged Hillary Clinton “medical information” that we have been provided came from the Hillary Campaign.

Hillary has not presented her complete medical history!

Hillary collapsed yesterday, September 11, 2016, while attending the 15th anniversary memorial of 9/11.

We were told after the fact that Hillary was diagnosed with pneumonia last friday by her physician Dr. Lisa Bardack.

This information was provided by the Hillary Campaign.

How do we know that this is true?

If it is true, what kind of pneumonia?

And why was Hillary with pneumonia, and taking coumadin daily, attending the ceremony?

From the NY Times September 11, 2016.

“Hillary Clinton’s Doctor Says Pneumonia Led to Abrupt Exit From 9/11 Event”

“Hillary Clinton is being treated for pneumonia and dehydration, her doctor said on Sunday, hours after she abruptly left a ceremony in New York honoring the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks and had to be helped into a van by Secret Service agents.

The incident, which occurred after months of questions about her health from her Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, and his campaign, is likely to increase pressure on Mrs. Clinton to address the issue and release detailed medical records, which she has so far declined to do.

Mrs. Clinton was taken from the morning event at ground zero to the Manhattan apartment of her daughter, Chelsea. About 90 minutes after arriving there, Mrs. Clinton emerged from the apartment in New York’s Flatiron district. She waved to onlookers and posed for pictures with a little girl on the sidewalk.

“I’m feeling great,” Mrs. Clinton said. “It’s a beautiful day in New York.”

Mrs. Clinton left in her motorcade without the group of reporters that is designated to travel with her in public. A campaign spokesman, Nick Merrill, indicated that she had returned to her Chappaqua, N.Y., residence sometime after 1 p.m., and Mrs. Clinton was not seen publicly the rest of the day.

Mr. Merrill initially described Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, as feeling “overheated” at the commemoration ceremony.

But just after 5 p.m., a campaign official said Mrs. Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, had examined the candidate at her home in Chappaqua, and Dr. Bardack said in a statement that Mrs. Clinton was “rehydrated and recovering nicely.”

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” Dr. Bardack’s statement said, adding that on Friday morning, after a prolonged cough, Mrs. Clinton was given a diagnosis of pneumonia.

“She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule,” Dr. Bardack added. “At this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated.”

Dr. Bardack did not indicate what sort of pneumonia Mrs. Clinton had or elaborate on the nature of the examination last week, whether Mrs. Clinton had a fever today, or a host of other issues that could offer more precise insights about her condition.”

If you read the article carefully, and I hope that you have, you will notice the following:

The information about Hillary’s health came from Hillary Campaign officials who allege it came from the doctor.

The information allegedly from the doctor was put in quotes.

“rehydrated and recovering nicely.”

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,”

“She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule,”

“At this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated.”

You noticed that there was no direct quote by the doctor about pneumonia.

So we are to trust the Hillary Campaign and there is no quote by the doctor about pneumonia.

The Times did write:

“Dr. Bardack did not indicate what sort of pneumonia Mrs. Clinton had or elaborate on the nature of the examination last week”

Hmmmmmm.

From Johns Hopkins Medicine.

“What is pneumonia?

Pneumonia is an infection of one or both of the lungs caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or chemical irritants. It is a serious infection or inflammation in which the air sacs fill with pus and other liquid.

  • Lobar pneumonia affects one or more sections (lobes) of the lungs.
  • Bronchial pneumonia (also known as bronchopneumonia) affects patches throughout both lungs.

What causes pneumonia?

There are more than 30 different causes of pneumonia, and they’re grouped by the cause. The main types of pneumonia are:

  • Bacterial pneumonia. This type is caused by various bacteria. The most common isStreptococcus pneumoniae. It usually occurs when the body is weakened in some way, such as by illness, poor nutrition, old age, or impaired immunity, and the bacteria are able to work their way into the lungs. Bacterial pneumonia can affect all ages, but you are at greater risk if you abuse alcohol, smoke cigarettes, are debilitated, have recently had surgery, have a respiratory disease or viral infection, or have a weakened immune system.
  • Viral pneumonia. This type is caused by various viruses, including influenza (flu), and is responsible for about one-third of all pneumonia cases. You may be more likely to get bacterial pneumonia if you have viral pneumonia.
  • Mycoplasma pneumonia. This type has somewhat different symptoms and physical signs and is referred to as atypical pneumonia. It is caused by the bacterium Mycoplasma pneumoniae. It generally causes a mild, widespread pneumonia that affects all age groups.
  • Other pneumonias. There are other, less common pneumonias that may be caused by other infections, or that result from inhaling food, liquid, gases, dust, or fungi.

From Citizen Wells August 13, 2016.

“According to Politico on July 31, 2015, the famous Hillary Clinton health report letter from Dr. Lisa Bardack was released by her campaign.”

“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.

Conspiracy?

  1. Just because something is a conspiracy theory does not mean it is not true.
  2. 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”

http://www.caremountmedical.com/directory/people/show/lisa-bardack/

Snopes seems to believe this is important.

http://www.snopes.com/hillary-clinton-medical-records-leaked/

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:

  1. 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/
  2. The letter states that Hillary is fit to be president even though the doctor is not qualified to make that determination.
  3. There is no, to my knowledge, confirmation that Dr. Lisa Gartman wrote that letter.

Hillary Clinton and the country has a problem.

Hillary believes that it is her turn and she deserves to be president.

It is my opinion that she is not psychologically fit to be president.

All of the evidence indicates that she is not physically fit to be president.

I believe that she continues to run because of her sense of entitlement and to get a Democrat elected.

But there are consequences and rules that apply if her health gets worse.

From the US Constitution.

“AMENDMENT XX

Section 1. The terms of the President and Vice President shall
end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators
and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January,
of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article
had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall
then begin.

Section 2. The Congress shall assemble at least once in every
year, and such meeting shall begin at noon on the 3d day of
January, unless they shall by law appoint a different day.

Section 3. If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of
the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice
President elect shall become President. If a President shall not
have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his
term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then
the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President
shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the
case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect
shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President,
or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and
such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice
President shall have qualified.”

Hillary is clearly not healthy.

Do not be deceived by a letter released by the Hillary campaign allegedly written by Clinton’s physician Dr. Lisa Bardack or by Snopes and others’ attempts to do damage control.

Does Hillary have Parkinson’s Disease?

From Danger and Play August 12, 2016.

“Hillary Clinton Has Parkinson’s Disease, Physician Confirms”

“Hillary’s health is declining, as anyone who has looked at her can see. The question is: What condition does she have? A board certified Anesthesiologist has written a memo of Hillary’s health. Feel free to pass it along to doctors and to analytics and criticize it.

Hillary Clinton’s Probable Diagnosis

(Download the PDF here, share with doctors for their opinion.)

Intro:

Hillary Clinton (HRC) has suffered a variety of health issues. Unfortunately, she has declined to make her medical records public. In July of 2015 her personal physician released a letter asserting her “excellent physical condition.” Unfortunately, multiple later episodes recorded on video strongly suggest that the content of the letter is incorrect. This discussion is designed to sort through the known facts and propose a possible medical explanation for these events. In keeping with Occam’s Razor, a single explanation that covers everything is preferred.

 

History of Hillary’s Health:

  • In 2009, HRC fell and broke her elbow. Little else was made public.[i]
  • On December 17, 2012, while Secretary of State, HRC fell and suffered a concussion.[ii]Later, a transverse sinus thrombosis was diagnosed, resulting in chronic anticoagulation therapy. [iii] Her post-concussion syndrome was declared “recovered” in about six months.[iv] The original fall was publicly attributed to dehydration following gastroenteritis.
  • An email from Huma Abedin (HRC’s closest advisor) on January 26, 2013, says that HRC “is often confused.”[v]
  • Photos show being assisted up what appears to be the steps of a residential porch. This apparently happened in February of 2016. On August 4, 2016, Reuters and Getty published the photos.[vi]
  • At a rally on May 2, 2016, HRC demonstrates classic PD hand posturing.[vii] She has no lectern in front, so she starts with her right hand pressed against her chest. At the 18:02 mark, she starts gesturing with her right hand, which is in a very unnatural position that is common in PD.
  • On July 21, 2016 HRC was filmed talking to reporters at close range when several spoke at once. Without warning, she started a bizarre head-bobbing episode that must be seen rather than described. After several cycles, she regained control and declared that the reporters “must try the iced chai.”[viii]
  • On July 28, 2016, during the balloon drop, HRC suddenly looks up with a frozen wide-mouth and wide-eyed stare. After a couple of seconds she regains control and a more normal expression.[ix]
  • On August 5, HRC declared that she had “short circuited”[x] a response to Chris Wallace in an interview that aired July 31 on Fox News Sunday.[xi]
  • August 6, 2016, at a campaign rally, HRC freezes with wide eyes in response to protestors. A large black male who commonly accompanies her leans in and tells her “It’s OK. We’re not going anywhere. Keep talking…” Shortly after, she laughs strangely and then says “OK. Here we are. We’ll keep talking.”[xii]
  • Several recent photos show HRC with an inappropriately exaggerated wide-mouthed smile and extreme wide-open eyes. Several videos show her laughing inappropriately and for extended periods. Numerous events have been interrupted by prolonged episodes of coughing unrelated to any infectious cause.
  • This discussion will not argue that the black male is carrying a diazepam injector, since there is a plausible argument that it is actually a small flashlight, and is seen in other video to be such. We will also not discuss the circular area on her tongue. It appears to be the site of a mass excision. Benign explanations that do not bear on chronic health issues may easily be proffered.”

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.”

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.

  2. The letter states that Hillary is fit to be president even though the doctor is not qualified to make that determination.
  3. 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.”

http://patch.com/new-york/ossining/visitation-service-john-vincent-fleck

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.

Obamacare costs skyrocket and low income people can’t afford, Huge deductibles hidden story emerges, Hospitals medical providers and public will pay for unpaid bills, Family spent half its annual income paying for obamacare

“If you’ve got health insurance we’re going to work with you to lower your premiums by $2,500 per family per year. We will not wait 20 years from now to do it, or 10 years from now to do it. We will do it by the end of my first term as president.”…Barack Obama

“Dean Griffin liked the health insurance he purchased for himself and his wife three years ago and thought he’d be able to keep the plan even after the federal Affordable Care Act took effect.

But the 64-year-old recently received a letter notifying him the plan was being cancelled because it didn’t cover certain benefits required under the law.

The Griffins, who live near Philadelphia, pay $770 monthly for their soon-to-be-terminated health care plan with a $2,500 deductible. The cheapest plan they found on their state insurance exchange was a so-called bronze plan charging a $1,275 monthly premium with deductibles totalling $12,700. It covers only providers in Pennsylvania, so the couple, who live near Delaware, won’t be able to see doctors they’ve used for more than a decade.”…Times Colonist November 2, 2013

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

 

 

Citizen Wells has been warning you for years that aside from the catastrophic effect of Obamacare on premiums our healthcare system and jobs, the hidden story was rising deductibles that lower income people will not be able to pay and the burden this will place on the entire country.

From Citizen Wells October 17, 2013.

Obamacare is increasing healthcare premiums in 45 states.

A 27 year old in Virginia will see an increase of over 252 percent.

And one of the biggest under reported Obama scandals is the skyrocketing deductibles under Obamacare.

https://citizenwells.com/2013/10/17/obamacare-increases-premiums-in-45-states-deductibles-skyrocket-27-year-old-in-va-up-252-percent-obama-lied-about-keeping-your-insurance-and-reducing-costs/

From Zero Hedge November 15, 2015.

“Meet The Family That Just Spent Half Its Annual Income Paying For Obamacare”

“Well, since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, also known as the Obamacare tax, we have watched in horror as shocker after shocker are revealed.

Some examples:

Now we can add one more thing that “was in it”: soaring deductibles, which give the fake impression of contained, low all-in costs… until one actually needs expensive medial help (and these days there is no other kind).

The latest expose against Obamacare comes not from its usual nemesis, but the hard-left NYT, suggesting that even the ideological supporters of Obama’s “crowning achievement” are losing faith. To wit:

Obama administration officials, urging people to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, have trumpeted the low premiums available on the law’s new marketplaces.

 

But for many consumers, the sticker shock is coming not on the front end, when they purchase the plans, but on the back end when they get sick: sky-high deductibles that are leaving some newly insured feeling nearly as vulnerable as they were before they had coverage.

 

“The deductible, $3,000 a year, makes it impossible to actually go to the doctor,” said David R. Reines, 60, of Jefferson Township, N.J., a former hardware salesman with chronic knee pain. “We have insurance, but can’t afford to use it.”

 

In many states, more than half the plans offered for sale through HealthCare.gov, the federal online marketplace, have a deductible of $3,000 or more, a New York Times review has found. Those deductibles are causing concern among Democrats — and some Republican detractors of the health law, who once pushed high-deductible health plans in the belief that consumers would be more cost-conscious if they had more of a financial stake or skin in the game.

 

“We could not afford the deductible,” said Kevin Fanning, 59, who lives in North Texas, near Wichita Falls. “Basically I was paying for insurance I could not afford to use.” He dropped his policy.

In other words, Obamacare’s “affordable care” is affordable, as long as one doesn’t actually have to use it!”

Obama and Pharmaceutical firms again in cahoots on TPP, Trans Pacific Partnership empowers big pharma, Greater access to and influence over decision making processes around pricing and reimbursement, Drug companies biggest spenders on lobbying

“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan.”…Barack Obama

“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

 

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

 

From the NY Times June 10, 2015.

“Facing resistance from Pacific trading partners, the Obama administration is no longer demanding protection for pharmaceutical prices under the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership, according to a newly leaked section of the proposed trade accord.”

“It was very clear to everyone except the U.S. that the initial proposal wasn’t about transparency. It was about getting market access for the pharmaceutical industry by giving them greater access to and influence over decision-making processes around pricing and reimbursement,” saidDeborah Gleeson, a lecturer at the School of Psychology and Public Health at La Trobe University in Australia. And even though the section, known as the transparency annex, has been toned down, she said, “I think it’s a shame that the annex is still being considered at all for the T.P.P.”

The annex, which covers pharmaceutical and medical devices, is the latest document obtained by The New York Times in collaboration with the watchdog group WikiLeaks, and it was released before the House vote on whether to give President Obama expanded powers to complete the Trans-Pacific Partnership.”

“The agreement “will increase the cost of medicines worldwide, starting with the 12 countries that are negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership,” said Judit Rius Sanjuan, a lawyer at Doctors Without Borders, a humanitarian organization that provides medical care in more than 60 countries.”

“Pharmaceutical firms and their trade associations have filed by far more lobbying disclosure forms on the Pacific trade negotiations than any other industry, according to the watchdog Sunlight Foundation. More broadly, the pharmaceutical and health product industries have been the biggest spenders on lobbying, and drug company deal-making with the Obama administration and in Congress was instrumental in securing passage of the Affordable Care Act.”

““The leak is just the latest glaring example of why fast-tracking the T.P.P. would undermine the health of Americans and the other countries and cost our government more, all to the benefit of pharma’s profits,” said Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch and one of the most prominent voices in the coalition working to scuttle trade promotion authority.”

Naw, Mr transparency, Obama, wouldn’t make a deal with the pharmaceutical companies would he?

From Citizen Wells August 23, 2009.

“Internal Memo Confirms Big Giveaways In White House Deal With Big Pharma
A memo obtained by the Huffington Post confirms that the White House and the pharmaceutical lobby secretly agreed to precisely the sort of wide-ranging deal that both parties have been denying over the past week.

The memo, which according to a knowledgeable health care lobbyist was prepared by a person directly involved in the negotiations, lists exactly what the White House gave up, and what it got in return.”

“Critics on Capitol Hill and online responded with outrage at the reports that Obama had gone behind their backs and sold the reform movement short. Furthermore, the deal seemed to be a betrayal of several promises made by then-Sen. Obama during the presidential campaign, among them that he would use the power of government to drive down the costs of drugs to Medicare and that negotiations would be conducted in the open.”

“the White House agreed to:

1. Oppose importation

2. Oppose rebates in Medicare Part D

3. Oppose repeal of non-interference

4. Oppose opening Medicare Part B”

Obamacare impact on Americans and economy, Higher premiums and deductibles, Medicare payments redirected, Employer costs passed on, Part time jobs instead of full time

“About two-thirds of the hospitals serving Medicare patients, or some 2,200 facilities, will be hit with penalties averaging around $125,000 per facility this coming year, according to government estimates.”…NE News Now

“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

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

 

The media has done a stellar job of focusing on signups for Obamacare and how this has improved. What they have, obviously intentionally, not done is focus on the worsening impact of Obamacare on all Americans and the economy.

Citizen Wells has revealed the impact of premium and deductible increases and the job losses and part time jobs trends.

We have also explained the impact of cost increases and taxes on companies. These costs are often passed on to consumers.

The impact of Obamacare is much more far reaching.

“Talking about Obamacare’s effects is one thing; seeing hard data is another.

Heritage’s newly updated Obamacare in Pictures has 15 charts that show the law’s effects on Americans—from canceled insurance policies to new taxes, Medicare cuts, reduced choice for plans, and more.

Here’s a quick look at just three of these charts and how Obamacare is hitting three groups.

YOUNG PEOPLE

Obamacare in Pictures 2014: Premiums Age 27

Obamacare says you can stay on your parents’ health insurance until you turn 26. This chart looks at what happens after that—if you don’t have employer-sponsored insurance and you have to get insured through Obamacare. If you’re trying to save for a car or house—or just paying rent to have your own place—seeing your premiums double is quite a blow.

SENIORS

Obamacare in Pictures 2014: Medicare cuts

You may recall Heritage experts’ warning that Obamacare would cut $716 billion from Medicare. That’s still happening.

Despite the Obama administration’s recent walking back of Medicare Advantage cuts for this year, Obamacare’s planned cuts to Medicare are moving forward. This chart shows which parts of Medicare are affected.”
