New York - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton briefly left the hospital where she is being treated for a blood clot in her head for testing on Wednesday, officials said. Mrs. Clinton was photographed leaving the hospital shortly after 3:00 p.m., but officials said she was only having tests done at another location. She was back in the hospital about an hour later. Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says Clinton had been "quite active" on the phone Wednesday with State Department aides. She says doctors will continue to monitor her progress. Clinton was admitted to a New York hospital Sunday
If she is re-admitted within 60days the Hospital will be liable for a Major Fine(Tax?) under the NEW Obamacare Laws. Uhmmm...since she checked herself out without being released..can her insurance company now cancel her coverage?
What sort of hospital is she in that she had to leave to have tests done and then come back? I´ve never heard of such a thing. If a hospital can´t take care of your needs, they usually transfer you to a better equipped hospital and you stay there. What could she have been doing in that hour...?
#8, depends what "Russian press" means. I´m guessing it was a tabloid and Russian tabloids are no more reliable than those in other countries. I wouldn´t put too much stock in Pravda or Izvestia, either. Additionally, it was not the "EU" who released the same information, it was an EU tabloid.
There was one report that she had a hematoma, epidural or subdural, I don´t know. You don´t walk away from the hospital with that until surgery is done. Once again, the crooks are setting up the American public for something.
#14 and #21, I imagine this was a photo op since so many have been writing "where´s Bill and Chelsea?" A person can choose to leave a hospital without being checked out, but then their doctor may not give them prescriptions I´ve heard. You have free will, and a hospital isn´t a prison. Some stubborn people decide they´re ready to go home before doctors are ready to release them. The article said she went somewhere for tests. While that´s possible, I´m skeptical about that story along with all the rest.
No one seems to have read the article. She left the hospital building to go to another medical building on the hospital campus for a test.
Here you go - spoon fed:
Mrs. Clinton was photographed leaving the New York-Presbyterian Hospital building where she has been since Sunday shortly after 30 p.m., but officials said she was only having tests done at another location on the medical campus. She was back in the hospital about an hour later.
An MRI comes to mind. These are often in separate, specially constructed buildings.
Sometimes we really sound silly when we run around blathering without having read the article...
Re #22, after a fall and a head bump, my late Mother suffered a subdural hematoma that caused her to have a seizure several weeks later. She did not require surgery of any kind. Was treated in hospital and eventually released. She suffered no lasting effects. And she was somewhat older than Hillary.
She may have gone to another building on campus for tests but have you ever heard of someone who was in hospital transporting themselves to have a test done and then come back? That makes no sense at all to me. U just don´t trust a word I read about her any more.
Wacky Baracky made history as the first black president of the U.S.
Hillary has a very strong drive, or will, or desire, to make history, too... as the United States´ first lesbian president.
Amazingly, she´s had straight sex more than many lesbians do... Webb Hubbel (as noted above, Chelsea´s DNA Dad)... Vince Foster... and, allegedly and almost unbelievably... BillyBoob Klintoon... possibly... once a year... according to Arkansas State Troopers who were there. It´s all documented.
Today, btw, when BillyBoob Klintoon arrived at the NYC hospital and saw her face, he said... "Better put some ice on that."
Then he turned to onlookers and witnesses and said... "I did NOT have sex with that woman... "
CHEL (snapping gum and walking fast like a-hole Manhattan moneybabies tend to do): "Mom, you are SUCH a DRAG! I mean, it´s not like this is the first time you got wasted and fell on your head. Why don´t you just tell them what happened at that place over there in the desert? Nobody´s really paying attention..."
BUBBA: Wow, check out that nurse. Do you think she knows who I am?
And there you have it. Case closed. Thank you, and goodnight, America.
If she was not released from the hospital then she would have been taken to the other building by van. It seems so unlikely that they would let her go there on her own and risk having something happen to her while she´s out walking around.Doesn´t make sense.
You have to be impressed with the stuff they want us to swallow. If the hospital has to send her elsewhere, (which i doubt) they would do so in an ambulance. SHe probably didn´t like the hospital food and they went out for a round of drinks and chow. I am ruling out anything serious.
I was a medical student in Columbia-Presbyterian in the early 90´s. Most of the buildings are interconnected and there are sky-bridges. Hillary doesn´t really have to exit any building to get to another. It´s probably a scripted moment, one of the many for Bill & Hillary. I was there seeing the smoke billowing from the first World Trade Center from my dorm room. The Clintons are absolute fools when it comes to dealing with Islamists Imperialism.
Once someone goes on Coumadin (Warfarin) they are on it for life. Her health has been so badly compromised now I think it will prevent her from ever running for POTUS. If Obamacare were in full implementation today her name would be on a waiting list pending an appt let alone treatment of her condition!
Having just had a tumor removed from my brain, believe me you do not get up and walk anywhere if you have a clot in your brain, especially alone. First, that clot would make her unable to talk, or much else, depending on where it was. I am old and it has been almost a year since my surgery and I still have to use a cane and cannot walk well for very far.
The weather in winter in NYC can be awful. Big NYC hospital campuses are almost always connected either by enclosed walkways, underground tunnels, or skybridges. They don´t move patients around by having them suit up in their street clothes and hoof it over to another building.
The air crash thing is intriguing, but I suspect plastic surgery, or else Hillary´s got some serious illness and they´re not admitting it.
DETROIT — In a ruling that could reverberate far beyond Detroit, a federal judge held on Tuesday that this battered city could formally enter bankruptcy and asserted that Detroit’s obligation to pay pensions in full was not untouchable. The judge, Steven W. Rhodes, dealt a major blow to the widely held belief that state laws preserve public pensions, and his ruling is likely to resonate in Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and many other American cities where the rising cost of pensions has been crowding out spending for public schools, police departments and other services.
You should really just read the entire piece by Amy Goldstein and Juliet Eilperin in today´s Washington Post, which is a great account of where things stand now with HealthCare.gov. These two paragraphs, taken together, jumped out at me especially in explaining the challenges that the website now faces. Paragraph one: The enrollment records for a significant portion of the Americans who have chosen health plans through the online federal insurance marketplace contain errors — generated by the computer system — that mean they might not get the coverage they’re expecting next month.
President Obama is striking a dangerous balance. Starting today, he must simultaneously refocus Americans on the potential benefits of Obamacare without shredding his credibility further by minimizing its flaws. That dilemma had White House officials twisted in knots Monday. On one hand, they acknowledged that the cornerstone federal website is not working as smoothly as it should. But you could hardly hear the disclaimer over the din of spin, as the White House launched an aggressive "offensive" from a defensive crouch. "Healthcare.gov met our self-imposed November 30th deadline and even as we continue to make improvements to the website, we´ll also remind
Some people who have managed to complete the burdensome and glitch-filled process of signing up for Obamacare are learning they are not really enrolled at all. "Obama administration officials acknowledged today that some of the roughly 126,000 Americans who completed the torturous online enrollment process in October and November might not be officially signed up with their selected issuer, even if the website has told them they are." Technical problems transferring information from the website to insurance companies have troubled the system since the program´s rollout. Experts report that the website appears to function properly, but in the back end of
President Obama intends to enroll for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Monday. “I know that he will, and has said that he will, or the White House has said that he will,” Carney said, “but I don’t have any update.” White House officials did not clarify whether the president’s interest is part of a public relations demonstration aimed at touting an improved HealthCare.gov website, or if Obama intends to alter his federally provided medical coverage. As with his predecessors, Obama’s health care is provided through the Defense Department as a federal
The House’s chief investigator says the FBI is stonewalling his inquiry into whether the agency and the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative group True the Vote for special scrutiny, and Rep. Darrell E. Issa is now threatening subpoenas to pry loose the information from FBI Director James B. Comey Jr. Mr. Issa, California Republican, and Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, are leading the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s IRS inquiry. They also said the FBI is refusing to turn over any documents related to its own investigation into the IRS, which began in the days after an auditor’s report revealed
The Obamacare insurance marketplace is even more vulnerable to security breaches since the administration “fixed” Healthcare.gov, according to a cyber security expert.Health and Human Services (HHS) released a progress report on Sunday following its self-imposed Nov. 30 deadline to repair the website, saying that the “team has knocked more than 400 bug fixes and software improvements off the punch list.” The administration said that the “site capacity is stable at its intended level,” though the site continued to crash on Monday. The eight-page report made no mention of the website’s numerous security flaws, which experts say put Americans’ personal information at risk. “It
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
