Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has suffered a concussion after a fainting fit Saturday morning and is now recovering at home, officials said today. (Snip) ´Senator Kerry was relieved to hear that the Secretary is on the mend, but he insisted that given her condition, she could not and should not appear on Thursday as previously planned, and that the nation´s best interests are served by the report and hearings proceeding as scheduled with senior officials appearing in her place.´

Scandal and cover-up has followed this witch for decades.
Providing testimonty to congress is part of her job description. If she cannot fulfill the duties of her office she needs to step down until such time that she can.

Seems to me she is taking a page from the Janet Reno playbook who also played this card when she was supposed to testify regarding Waco or one of the other criminal debacles during the Clinton years.

This woman (Madam Hillary) is a disgrace, transparent phoney and embarassment to our nation - as is her boss Barry and her old man Bill.

It seems to me that I remember another person, GHW Bush, vomiting at a State dinner and then keeling over. It has nothing to do with age people. My daughter is an RN and she tells me that these bugs can hit older persons very badly. And given this country´s dependence on antibiotics that themselves can be harmful, these bugs are only going to get worse as time goes by.

I despise this woman´s unethical behaviour and all the evil she has helped to perpetuate against our country with every fiber of my heart and soul. But I can´t fault her here if she is really sick. If she is proved to be faking something to get out of testifying though, all bets are off.

It appears that the NFL is not the only institution struggling with traumatic head injury.

As a federal employee she will, no doubt, be required to take a post incident drug/alcohol screening.

Not !

She was probably running through enemy bullets, causing her to "faint" and get a "concussion" - concussions are notoriously diagnosed after a fall in which someone claims to have struck the head and claims nausea.

Let´s weigh this...... faint & concussion now, & know that most if not all of her adoring fans won´t give a fig in 2016. And know the Republicans have once again been out flanked. There are good, strong people out there, unfortunately they "ain´t" running the Republican party. Allen, Sarah, Herman, Newt, where are you?

Drudge´s photo choices of Hillary are deliciously devilish.

He strongly implies that she has a drink problem. If you Drudge, you know that he wouldn´t bother if it wasn´t true but a direct accusation would get the usual denials. And so he lets the quantity and frequency of incidents speak for themselves.

The prospect of "testifying under oath" can cause all manner of maladies in Clintons. No examination required. I made my diagnosis, without medical training,from 1,000 miles. Simply a staged sinking spell.

All right, let´s be scientific about this - has she been seen by a doctor? Remember a few years ago a young, healthy actress had a minor head injury while skiing & wasn´t treated. She died a day later. Since then, we are all aware that head injuries can be VERY serious. Now we are constantly told that Hillary is soooo smart. If she hasn´t seen a doctor, it seems she is gambling with her health. And while we are on the subject - about her HEAVY traveling schedule: have other SOS traveled this much - as in constantly? Where is her work product? What are the results of so much travel? Or is she just sight-seeing on the tax-payer dime & avoids going home to Bill. Maybe she´s afraid of what she might catch him doing while he´s home "alone."

Piaps has a track record of telling outrageous lies. She
seems to have a make believe anecdote for every occasion. The most outrageous of which is, "I dodged machine gun fire on the tarmac in Bosnia. She told that whopper multiple times before journalist Cheryl Akkisson of CBS humiliated hillary with the truth of the matter. Piaps also tells big lies everytime she is up against political embarrassment or connection with a criminal matter. Recall her Whitewater testimony. Now here comes the concussion story. Any reasonable person knows she´s lying about the concussion so she can dodge testifying on Libya. The concussion prattle is piaps versIon of "my dog ate my homework." It is very disturbing that the corrupt press covers for this shameful woman on demand. The press must have lost all self respect.

As one who has been a student of this student of Alinsky and Marx, I´ll admit that this is probably a legitimate diagnosis. Even a casual observer would agree that she does have a well documented history of feinting.

The piaps is obviously lying in an attempt to run for cover. Her creepy old man pulled a similar stunt with a phony-baloney ankle injury.

Having said this, I completely concur with what Poster #7 is suggesting. When it starts to show -- and in hillary´s situation, it is, definitely -- the time is long passed where it can be hidden or swept under the rug. The piaps is now dealing with a serious elephant in the parlor, with no pun intended.

Thanks, #29. 100% accurate.

OTOH, this incident could be responsible for the revival of the entire US economy. Once the advantages of fainting are fully embraced, the "Fainting Couch" business will come roaring back with a vengeance. Happy days are just around the corner.

Fainting has ALWAYS been a scam, an attempt to buy time, curry sympathy and change the subject.

I do not believe we are being told the truth.
As the top official in the U>S> State Dept, had she truly fell and hit her head hard enough to cause a concussion, she would have been taken to a hospital for appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Who diagnosed the
concussion and why was Mrs Clinton not put under observation to preclude a worse injury.
You readers figure it out for yourselves. Just a hint, it never happened the way the media reported. Who incurs a concussion and
is NOT taken for further treatment to insure
nothing else occurred.

On #14´s hint, i made an excursion to Drudge and read a few articles. In one there´s mention of two doctors who sound so very serious about piaps´s need to stay home and rest up.

Sounds like a kindergartener.

We all know this is a feint not a faint. She is a pathological liar, like so many (probably all) in her left-wing party, since the End Justifies the Means.

In any event, someone ought to make sure she knows that alcohol is dehydrating.

Call your Senators and tell them HRC must show up for hearings.

When you deal with facts, coincidences are a non starter, until they are proven otherwise.

This is too much of a coincidence that has not been proven to be a coincidence, so until then it is prudent to think that Hillary Clinton is hiding out from the Congressional Committee that is looking into the Benghazi.

There is no news about what medical attention Hillary Clinton received following her fainting spell and concussion, or that she was in hospital.

The facts concerning the Benghazi attack must be pretty bad, and thus Clinton cannot politically allow herself to have anything to do publicly with what is probably gross incompetence by higher ups in Washington, D.C.

Friends, fans and veteran politicos congregated in College Station on Friday to kick off a celebration of George H.W. Bush´s presidency. The event, hosted at the George Bush Presidential Library Center, commemorated the 25th anniversary of his presidency, featured panels on key legislation and culminated with the unveiling of a statue of the 41st president. Neither Bush nor his wife spoke during the event but they did attend some of the panels, much to the delight of the crowd.

In giving their endorsements to Ricketts, Palin and Orr formed a mutual admiration society. Orr said she and her late husband, Bill, were driving home from Iowa when a talk radio program was

President Obama on Saturday continued his election-year assault on the House GOP’s latest budget proposal, telling Americans the plan would “raise taxes on middle-class families with kids” and cut crucial programs while giving more handouts to the rich. In his weekly address, Mr. Obama made his case — without explicitly saying so — why voters should elect more Democrats in this November’s midterm elections and contrasted the GOP plan with his party’s priorities. “This week, the Republicans in Congress put forward a very different budget … it shrinks opportunity and makes it harder for Americans who work hard to get

A federal proposal requiring more efficiency from wood-burning stoves has ignited a debate between the Obama administration and lawmakers who oppose the new regulations, arguing the rules impose an unfair burden on people in remote areas. The Environmental Protection Agency proposed a rule changes in January that would dramatically tighten emissions requirements on new wood-powered heaters, though does not impact ones already in homes. The EPA estimates that as much as 13 percent of all soot pollution in the U.S. is a result of inefficient wood-fired stoves and boilers. The dispute pits several mostly urban states, mainly in the northeast,

Obamacare Propaganda in TV Scripts?

Top Obama aide Valerie Jarrett recently granted an interview to a celebrity-gossip website called Popsugar and revealed why she had come to Hollywood. “I´m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” The “it” is Obamacare. Conservatives are no match for liberals in this arena. The White House people know the immense cultural power the Left has in the popular culture. Liberals rightly credit TV and movies and pop songs for America’s growing support for gay “marriage.” So why not use that power for Obamacare? Jarrett told the Popsugar crew that

A pair of gunmen shot six people at a West Side party early Saturday morning - one opened fire toward a back porch from an alley while someone else opened fire from the front door as party goers tried to run inside. The first to open fire was an unknown gunman from the alley, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said. People running back into the apartment building from the back porch were confronted by a man at the front door who also opened fire, he said.

She promises the new show, which premiered Thursday, will be “unscripted, uncensored, unchained.” One thing’s certain: Palin is straight shooter — literally and figuratively. “I tell my kids, ‘Yes, we eat organic, we just have to go

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots
