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.

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.

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.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
