Clinton accused of faking illness
to avoid Benghazi testimony

Los Angeles Times, by Paul Richter

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/19/2012 9:33:35 PM

The State Department slammed former United Nations envoy John Bolton over his suggestion that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton falsely claimed a concussion to avoid a potentially embarrassing appearance before Congress to explain the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya. In an appearance on Fox News, Bolton said that Clinton’s claim that she had fainted because of the flu, hitting her head and suffering a concussion, was what foreign service officers call a “diplomatic illness,” intended to free a diplomat from an unpleasant duty.

Comments:
So, John Bolton steps up and call this "illness" balderdash. So, where are the GOP with the hearings? Are they going to postpone until she gets well enough to ...run for office [2016], and then get the witch´s testimony on Herself´s version for the Congressional Record?

Good for Bolton. The burden of proof is on Hillary. Even if she should "recover" she will, of course, have lapses in memory regarding critical events. That might get her past the hearings, but should disqualify her, like Tom Eagleton and others, for the job as POTUS.

Hillary´s absence requires a "willing suspension of disbelief". Uh, haven´t we heard that somewhere before?

If she eventually has to testify, claiming a ´concussion´ helps makes a case for her inevitable ´I don´t recall´. I would expect nothing less from ´the world´s smartest woman´.

Where exactly was she when she fell?
Is there footage of the flop?
Seems to be there should be since there´s cameras everywhere!
Since she had such a severe ´´flop´´ she should not be able to run for any other office since her faculties are now more impaired than ever!
The swearing in of ´´Madame Flopper´s´´ replacement should be stalled till she does testify UNDER OATH!

Note how the headline uses "accused" as if this is a sinister accusation. If an (R) were the subject, the line would be: "Is X faking illness to avoid Benghazi testimony?"

It wouldn´t matter if it was brown bottle flu, without exception my employers would require documentation within 24 hrs or I would be terminated.
So, tell me how , without any hospital intervention, such a diagnosis was made.

The actress Natasha Richardson died after a mild concussion. I find it impossible to believe that a Sec. of State would not be hospitalized at least for observation. Sorry, Hillary, you are a coward.

This was actually a lighthearted jab but the thin skinned left can´t take it. It´s interesting that this phrase is well known through the community though.

They also claim Hillary has varying degrees of fatigue to get her a break. She can´t go on vacation because she´s already been everywhere at taxpayers expense. Condi didn´t go anywhere without a distinct purpose. We´re paying for the state dept to fly chefs around the world as an outreach measure.Despite the spending cliff we´re at.But according to the left there´s nothing to cut in gov´t and boehner is terrible at pointing out government waste to bolster spending cuts.

they just had something on about Medicare being billed $900 for a $100 back brace. Medicare and medicaid are wasting billions on crap like this..Of course bribes get things like this approved.

The obama administration has been lying and getting away with it since 2008. Apparently they thought the American people would be stupid enough to swallow this "coincidence" as well. Sadly, at lease half of them are.

God bless John Bolton. Hillary is a lying bag of wrinkled skin. She is incompetent and corrupt just like her boss. Hillary is a disgrace to the office of SoS, the same as her boss is a disgrace to the office of president. America and the rest of the civilized world are less secure because of them.

It is absolutely inconceivable that a Cabinet-level Secretary of State could suffer an injury as serious as a concussion without an ambulance taking her to Walter Reed, hospital admission records, doctor reports, X-rays, etc.

On the other hand, anyone can self-describe a lump on their head as a concussion. (And a mosquito bite is a wound.) Absent any medical records, that is the case here.

It has been demonstarbly proven that the State Department has consistently lied about Benghazi. So, tell me, why would anyone believe Shrillary and Nuland are suddenly truthful?

I´ll bet someone told her, a few weeks ago, that obama and company would lay the blame at her door. And she decided she had had enough and would not testify. After all, our congress is full of gutless people, why should she treat them any different than her master, obama, does?
Her entire career has been comprised of being the kicked dog of powerful men. And liberal women think THAT is a reason to make her potus?

The explanation is absurd. No one of any age is supposed to self diagnose a concussion. The normal thing that is done is a CAT scan to make sure no active bleeding or swelling is occurring. If they do this with young adults and teens, you can bet anything that such procedure would be done with an older woman who is much, much more likely to have a brain bleed.

They were expecting this. I noticed how, first on The Five - Beckel - and then Alan Colmes on O´Reilly both exhibited their shocked face and insulted demeanor at THEIR OWN suggestion that someone ELSE was suggesting that the Madame was faking this. Oh! The horrors!

Heck, maybe they even planned it this way.

But, if she ends up with the ´can´t recall´ memory lapse, then this ´concussion´ incident should disqualify her for ever holding the highest office in the land. She would not be able to make coherent, sound decisions with this in her medical history.

Then again, maybe THAT´s why she did not allow hospitalization ... no records to lose - uh, I mean, to produce.

Subpoena her!

The Clintons seem to find a way to squirm out of everything. Maybe Hillary should wear a helmet when walking (drinking) to try to avoid another concussion.

It´s odd isn´t it that football players have to be hit with great force to get a concussion, and racecar driver have to have a really, really terrible accident to get a concussion, but Hillary? She falls while walking, gets a concussion. Her mind gets/was pickled. She can´t recall, poor dear.

It is so obvious that Mrs Clinton is trying to weasel out of testifying and everyone turns a blind eye to her pathetic excuse. This is what ticks me off to no end. The dems always get a pass when they out and out lie. They are never held accountable for anything they say or do. This country is like a huge dysfunctional family. The dems are the golden children and the republicans are the scapegoats and everything is their fault. Sorry about the juvenile rant, but this administration reduces me to whining from time to time.

Do we really need a secretary of state? A lot more people would be alive and the American taxpayer would have a few more bucks, if this bimbo would take her act somewhere else.

Everybody should go back and watch the body language on the day that Hillary and Obumbum announced this tragedy to the world. Hillary looked awful -- really shaken and (dare I say) guilty. This was not the usual state department announcement. Subsequent announcemnets she´d recovered her poise somewhat. But I think she knows a lot more than she´s said publically and should have been debriefed 3 months ago.

Just add Hillary to the list of names of democrats who abuse the medical system for political gain, to deflect and defend investigations/queries of their misdeeds and corruption: Jessie Jackson Jr;
Kerry Kennedy; John Bryson and now Hillary R Clinton. Kinda reminds of um, old Russia and their modus, doesn´t it?

To find a big player like Hillary guilty of negligent homicide etc could be the beginning of holding this whole administration responsible for their foreign policy of aiding and abetting our enemies. That is an outcome they desperately want to avoid.

I remember not too long ago when a President who was a Teetotaler fainted and struck ahead. He was accused by many on the left of getting drunk and falling over. These accusations were made without any evidence at all. Now those self same leftists are all up in arms about any negative comments about Hillary´s fall. I don´t know what happened, but I have not heard one comment from the conservative side that Hillary had imbibed just a little too much Holiday Cheer before taking a face plant. But it is the conservatives who often get blamed for being uncivil.

Hillary is a complete fabrication of our corrupt media. Not quite as big a fraud as Obama but close. She has been a foreign policy disaster from which the world will never recover. Her Mid East policies have initiated a world war with Islam which will continue for years.

...I heard the REAL story is that she got her concussion when she was with her constant, platonic, aide Huma on her way to replace some little people in the White House Travel Office...and as she was dodging bullets while running from a helicopter ... she accidentally stumbled on the missing Rose Law Firm billing invoices...and was immediately hit by a flying ashtray ...(a gift from some FJB) ...conveniently placed there by the vast right wing conspiracy ... which prevented her from picking up her $100,000 check she earned from smartly investing in cattle futures she read about in the Wall Street Journal one day ... yeah ... that´s the ticket.

Perhaps zippy was afraid she would finger him and sent a couple of his bruthas over to shut her up.

Is it possible for the parents on one or all of the victims to sue Hillary (even after she´s out of office) for noncompliance and punitive damages, not to mention her vast left wing cover up. If so, go get her. I would relish watching every minute of her squirming and then losing several million in the process. If this could ever happen, it would be a miracle. This women has a load of bad karma that has her name on it. Chances are the parents have already been reached and paid off.

Routine procedure for a patient experiencing head trauma is to rule out a subdural or epidural hematoma - this would never be ignored with the Secretary of the local Rotary Club much less Secretary of State. The current administration - all of them being the smartest guys in the room - think we are stupid.

“It’s unfortunate that in times like this people make wild speculation based on no information,” she said." - Article

Well now, that is rich coming from the woman who made accusations about a "vast right-wing conspiracy."

If I fell in my home and suffered a concussion, my husband would call an ambulance. I have to wonder if Hillary Clinton was really on a drunken binge when she fell.

Bolton was being gentle. When you get stomach flu and other intestinal disorders the effects dehydrate you. Being dehydrated is not good. The cure: rehydrate. When do we learn this awesome medical/scientific fact? At around the age of 12 or earlier. If you don´t rehydrate and make yourself so dizzy that you collapse and even concuss yourself, you are either ignorant or stupid. The PIAPS is either a fool or a liar; pick one. If a republican presidential candidate concussed himself the media would scream that s/he lacked the wherewithal to be president.

Precisely, #72. Especially after the widely publicized Natasha Richardson death from what was thought to be a ´´mild´´ brain injury, SoSt GreasyLocks would get immediate medical care, if the concussion in fact happened.... Which it obviously did not. Who ever thought this fiction would pass the smell test???

Hillary is the squirrel. The truth is not out, and won´t be without an impeachment trial of this communist crew, followed by hanging. It´s that serious.
Lets start with testimony from the survivors, who may as well have also been killed, as they have been barried for over three months now. Bring them out! Put them under oath.
Next tell of the mission of the "consulate"; i.e., buying Gadaffi weapons, storing them at the compound, and then getting ripped off by obama´s muslim brothers. AQ didn´t need no stinkin money; and Chris Stephens had to go as he knew too much, like killing the hit man to cover up the crime. This was a hit, and the truth stares us in the face. The bigger the front, the bigger the behind. We could get free of this conspiracy if we would did deeper.
On a parallel track, we need to unseal all of Obama´s hidden records, and air out these lies about his past, and who planted this Pied Piper of communist collectivist muslim oppression in our midst.

WOW,#66: ROTFLMAO at the best account, told in the briefest way, of PIAPS´ career (I use that term loosely). You not only have an excellent memory but a delightful way of stringing these laughably pathetic events together.

# 29 is absolutely correct.
Hillary , as Secretary of State , she absolutely would have had a CT , not to diagnoses a concussion, but , to rule out a subdural hematoma or fractured skull.
Fainting and hitting one´s head is serious business.
How long was she unconscious, did she have memory loss and confusion ?
And what kind of medical care has this woman had , anyway ?
Has " do it yourself " Obamacare already kicked in ?
We´re told days prior that she´s ill with a stomach virus and yet, she apparently wasn´t treated properly because her dehydration and electrolyte imbalance escalated
to the point where she was so ill, that she lost consciousness and suffered a head injury.
Her fuzzy memory when she testifies will be blamed
on the alleged concussion.

Hillary is a liar and an incompetent in everything she does. Her recent illness is due to the fact that her Benghazi lies are too big and too embarassing to cover up like she covered up the Billy/Monica affair.
Hillary should retire, bake cookies and keep an eye on Bill before he exposes himself to a younger Paula Jones.

I haven´t done public relations in a while, but here is some advice for Chelsea and Mr. Bill. Stand by your Hillary!!!

I know you´re busy with holiday parties, so I´ll draft a statement for you: "We are concerned and cautiously optimistic about Hillary´s concussion, which is very troubling and disheartening to us. Please keep her in your thoughts and give our family the time and space we need as we support her in this difficult time."

Release to media and carry on with your holiday festivities, but, uh, up to now, you look uncaring and disengaged.

Liberal doctors in Wisconsin are ready/willing/able to write excuses of illness. Might try one of them. I bet they have a price to be paid though!

Hillary is getting herself in deeper each day. She is just hoping the media lets her alone and we, the people, have amnesia!

Court Upholds EPA Emission Standards
Associated Press, by Pete Yost    Original Article

Washington - A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s emission standards for hazardous air pollutants from coal- and oil-fired power plants. In its ruling, the court rejected state and industry challenges to rules designed to clean up mercury, lead, arsenic and other dangerous air pollutants. The new regulations were designed to remove toxins from the air that contribute to respiratory illnesses, birth defects and developmental problems in children. Some industry groups have criticized the standards, saying the EPA was overstating the benefits. Industry groups argued it would cost billions of

You don´t have to go to the Griffith Observatory or other prime watching spot to view the first total lunar eclipse of 2014. Numerous "blood moon" video streams are available on the Web. The Griffith Observatory will be streaming the event live from the Zeiss dome beginning at 9:45 p.m. The Slooh Observatory in the Canary Islands will also be doing a live stream. NASA is also planning a live stream, with experts taking questions from viewers. For those who want to take in the event in person, Griffith Observatory decided to open its doors Monday (it´s usually closed). "We are expecting large crowds," the observatory said in a statement.

Chelsea Clinton says in a new interview that she´s open to a run for a multitude of offices, from mayor of New York to the U.S. Senate. "I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives," Clinton told Fast Company. "If at some point that weren´t the case, and I didn´t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators -- and I'm lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know -- maybe then I'd have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer." The answer is pretty similar to a response Clinton, 34,

Even as the cost of prescription drugs has plummeted for many Americans, a small slice of the population is being asked to shoulder more and more of the cost of expensive treatments for diseases like cancer and hepatitis C, according to a report to be released on Tuesday by a major drug research firm. The findings echo the conclusions of two other reports released last week by major pharmacy benefit managers, which predicted that spending on so-called specialty drugs would continue to rise. The report, by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, also found that consumers’ use of health care — visits to the doctor,

One dumb teenager is easily excused — but the host of Twitter users currently tweeting bomb threats at major airlines is another story entirely. In case you’ve somehow missed this latest round of Internet idiocy, here’s what went down: Sunday night, a Dutch teenager identified only as “Sarah” infamously tweeted a threat at American Airlines. (“hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan. I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye,” she wrote. Hilarious!) She then promptly made the account private and insisted it was all a joke — “I’m so stupid, I’m scared,” she wrote at one point —

Guantanamo Bay Navy Base, Cuba - A military judge abruptly recessed the first 9/11 trial hearing of the year Monday after defense lawyers accused the FBI in open court of trying to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant. If true, the lawyers argued, attorney-client confidentiality might be compromised in the case that seeks to put on trial and execute five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. At issue, in part, was the publication in January of prison camp musings by the alleged 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed,

Boko Haram rears its head in Nigeria´s

Abuja, Nigeria - Bomb blasts ripped through a bus station in the suburbs of the Nigerian capital today in the largest single attack on Abuja since insurgents began violent operations in 2009. Authorities say 71 people were killed and 124 were injured in a strike on Nyanya Motor Park, a chaotic bus station where commuters board megabuses into the pristine city center for work less than 10 miles away. The blasts in Nigeria´s capital are a direct challenge to the government´s recent assurances that it has managed to contain Boko Haram, Nigeria's militant Islamist group, to the remote northeast of the country. The last attack in Abuja was two years

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

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)

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

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
