Government officials have vehemently denied claims that Hillary Clinton is undergoing extensive tests for brain cancer. The National Enquirer reported the debilitating illness was behind the Secretary of State´s recent collapse and that she was facing a barrage of medical tests to confirm the diagnosis. But a spokesman for the 65-year-old Democrat labelled the claims ´absolute nonsense´ and insisted Clinton was recovering well from the fall and subsequent concussion. ´The story... is absolute nonsense. The Secretary continues to recuperate at home,´ the spokesman told MailOnline.
I wouldn´t believe anything Hillary Klintoon tells us about her supposed "collapse". Hillary is a serial liar, a disgrace and a criminal who should be in jail. She has no accountability for her poor performance as SOS. She is a POS. I think she is also a drunk. The thought of her standing next to those flag-draped coffins spouting her lies about Benghazi is enough to make you ill.

This is Clintonian spin to generate sympathy for her. But there IS something going on with her--my brother the doctor has long noted her physical deterioration and rapid aging in four years (look at pictures from 2008 and this year--a huge difference). Also look at her public presence--it´s been highly restricted for months, even before Benghazi. Could be that her handlers at State (dear ol´ Huma Abedin Weiner) know she´s deteriorating from something and are shielding her. And that ´something´ could be a whole host of things, including auto-immune disease (note the moon face, could be steroids), a mini-stroke (TIA) or carotid blockages, heart disease (way underdiagnosed in women), or the oft-discussed dependence on alcohol.
She has Benghazi Flu, a debilitating but intense short term illness that expresses itself with selective memory and a fear of being looked at by 12 Congressmen while surrounded by foam rubber apparatuses, in the presence of electronic television transmitters.
But don´t worry, the cure is a presidential race, and remember: You must never ever mention this to Her Royal Cankles. It would be racist, sexist, and whatever -ist you want to throw in there.

My point is that if she was suffering from a disease that affected her cognition and ability to carry out her duties, Clinton should have resigned immediately for the good of the country. But the Clintons don´t think that way, and that is even worse.
Rumors are that some GOP senators with partial spines are threatening to block Kerry´s confirmation until Hill tells Congress about Benghazi. But once HRC resigns, an interim SoS, possibly her Muslim Brotherhood connected aide, would be named by Obama. There is surely a deal between Obama, HRC & Susan Rice to have Rice take the fall because Rice is actually seeking presidency of Princeton.
As to Hillary´s unlikely testimony, it would require suspension of disbelief:
"Senator, I´ve never campaigned, nor will I, in the Benghazi primary, so I don´t understand why you are asking me about it. I am focused on the needs of the American people and not the presidency of Libya."
It is unprecedented that one of the top tier Cabinet Secretaries, scheduled for the most high profile Congressional testimony of her career disappears from public view for weeks, without plausible confirmed explanation. Whatever the reason, there’s something seriously wrong. It is not the behavior of a possible future presidential candidate.
# 18, Grambo - the Dems and their media determine what is acceptable behavior, so Hill can do whatever she pleases. To illustrate, a Romney asset was not having skeletons in the proverbial closet. So, Obama, CNN, CNBC and ilk tossed in the skeletons of Seamus the dog and a woman who sadly died of cancer 7 years after her husband was laid off.
Such a reported ´collapse´ should have triggered a fast hustle of her capacious rear to the nearest hospital for dozens of tests to find out the cause. Instead she went nowhere near a health care facility. I don´t buy any of this. She just doesn´t want to testify.
The list of questions for her keeps growing...now maybe she can also tell us why she again lied when HER department claimed to have ´accepted´ resignations for 4 ´senior´ people in her department...you know, the report said that ´something´ had gone wrong but nobody was responsible...what a government. Says a lot when fools keep re-electing the same crooks. I think she and Obama are competing for the most lies told. They are used to dealing with idiots and just don´t expect any questions...despicable human beings!
This might be a multiple birds with one stone situation.
Detox and rehab, definitely. her organ grinders aren´t even trying to hide this one.
Facelift and botox? Likely. Her sorry, worn-out mug looks like the north end of a southbound platypus, and even if it´s only so she can stand there nodding beside her politically-ascending pupa, the piaps simply must do something about that face. A shower and shave wouldn´t hurt either.
Did she really fall down and crack her knob? Sure, and why not? See above (detox/rehab).
The piaps is undergoing her final full-body overhaul. Whether or not it works out for her remains to be seen, but whatever happens, this will be her last hurrah; her final grasp at a bubba-and-stinky-free spotlight. I hope she fails.

Can anyone say, "Lee Atwater"?
National Enquirer is typically spot on. A serious unlying medical problem makes sense. Her physical appearance has deteriorated along with rapid weight gain. I´m not sure how she could stay under the radar for this long unless something is wrong.
To suppose she is having cosmetic surgery is disingenuous as a cause for her disappearance. There would be no reason to have it now...she can have it when she resigns.
I think #2 is right but there could be other explanations. She could have had a bad hangover which would account for her stomach "virus". She could have passed out and hit her head hard enough to get a concussion. Sometimes concussions cause lots of memory losses, etc. for months. She may never be the same. Wonder why her family is not at her side? For some reason the MSM is not interested. Wonder why? Something is not quite right with this story.
she´s hiding, hiding, hiding. She´s afraid. We´re waiting for her and she is sooooo guilty. Perhaps she thinks the fathers and mothers, sisters/brothers, friends, neighbors, church associates will forget she took responsibility for the red phone, answered it and did nothing to assist a fellow American in distress. Yep! She´s hiding thinking we´ll forget. I don´t think so.
This is the problem with being, well, Clintonesque. The inherent willingness on their part to lie and embellish, even when the Clinton´s didn´t have to, leads those without short term memory loss to instinctively view such pronouncements as barnyard couture.
She gets out of the public eye to loose a couple of dress sizes and revamp her appearance, she gets out of the limelight with regard to Benghazi, and she´ll come back ready for her closeup.
The Obamas had her running around so much for the past four years, of course she looks bad.
Hillery is just sick of work /s/. With the mess in the State Department (mostly created by the administration, but it was there prior), its no surprise she is not testifying. Obama probably expects her to take the fall, but she´s a Clinton.
On a more serious note, hope she is OK. Have a hard time seeing her run for election. She hasn´t looked well for a while. Hope she has access to good doctors that can diagnose whatever the problem is. Wonder what is wrong with her.
PIAPS doesn´t have brain cancer? Boy I was so worried. s/off. I do know wha tthis lying harridan does have. She´s got what others in the Obamanation and the news media have. Benghazi-itis. It is known only to strike leftwingers and the symptoms are a follows: 1. Dizzy spells 2. Memory loss 3. Lying in public 4. Acting like a jerk in public 5. And my personal favorite. Thinking that smarter people believe your lies even if you believe them yourself. Yes ladies and gentlemen who post on this fabulous forum does this sound like what the old Hillarious One has along with her boss.
Activists said that illegal immigrants were arrested while protesting outside of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s office on Wednesday in the latest escalation of civil disobedience designed to pressure Congress to legalize them. In the morning, hundreds of immigrant-rights activists staged a vigil outside of House Speaker John A. Boehner’s home in Washington, setting up a Thanksgiving dinner table which they said highlighted illegal immigrants who are being deported and won’t be with their families during the holiday this year. After the vigil, activists went to the Capitol complex where 11 of them — some U.S. citizens and some so-called
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon for the Sirius XM Patriots network, Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker said he does not support amnesty and the Washington Post’s Aaron Blake, who previously reported Walker supports a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal immigrants took him “out of context.” Towards the end of the interview, Bannon noted that “Amnesty is about the sovereignty of the country.” But, he asked Walker, “the Washington Post said earlier that you’re pro-pathway to citizenship.” “See now that’s where they take it out of context,” Walker said in response. “I’ve not said
Taxpayers will be happy to know they not only fund abortions under the Affordable Care Act, they also help prostitutes stay healthy. Prior to Obamacare, brothel workers at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch in Nevada said they were unable to find coverage under their profession. Prostitute “Caressa Kisses” explained to WOAI NBC News: “They equate us to illegal working girls who have very high STDS and AIDS rates. Which we have none of the above, we’re legal, licensed prostitutes. (Snip) We’re independent contractors, so we have to get our own insurance. So this is truly a blessing. We really hope that
Nearly 50 years after an assassin killed President John F. Kennedy, his daughter was triumphantly received as America’s ambassador to Japan in the country that made her dad a hero. Caroline Kennedy arrived at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo Tuesday in an ornate, horse-drawn carriage — befitting the Princess of Camelot’s role as American royalty — to present her credentials to Emperor Akihito. Meanwhile, back at home, images of her standing stoically at her father’s funeral were being replayed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his death this week.
According to a new CBS News Poll, President Obama´s approval rating has nosedived into the mid-30s, surely setting off a panic at the White House. President Barack Obama´s job approval rating has plunged to the lowest of his presidency. 37% now approve of the job he is doing as president, down from 46% in October -- a nine point drop in just a month. Mr. Obama´s disapproval rating is 57% -- the highest level for this president in CBS News Polls. [Chart] The failed implementation of Obamacare and the continuing loss of health insurance seems to be doing the most
At least three nearby hospitals had available beds the day before the son of Virginia state Sen. R. Creigh Deeds apparently stabbed his father and then shot himself to death, officials confirmed Wednesday. Deeds’s condition was upgraded to good at a Charlottesville hospital as state mental-health officials continued to search for an explanation of what happened. Austin Deeds, who was 24, had undergone a psychiatric evaluation on Monday, but several officials said he was not admitted to a hospital because no bed was available. It remained unclear Wednesday which hospitals were called and why Austin Deeds was not taken to
Controversy continues to rage about President Obama´s announcement at a Nov. 14 press conference that his administration would not compel insurance companies to cancel policies they had changed since passage of the Affordable Care Act and which did not conform to its numerous, costly, and multi-layered requirements. Much of the controversy concerns the propriety of the president’s declining to enforce a duly enacted law (bearing his signature) whose constitutionality he does not doubt, and whether insurance companies will be able to abruptly change course after three years of preparing to comply with their elaborate and interwoven legal obligations under Obamacare. But
Several dozen suspected terrorist bombmakers, including some believed to have targeted American troops, may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the United States as war refugees, according to FBI agents investigating the remnants of roadside bombs recovered from Iraq and Afghanistan. The discovery in 2009 of two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky -- who later admitted in court that they´d attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq -- prompted the bureau to assign hundreds of specialists to an around-the-clock effort aimed at checking its archive of 100,000 improvised explosive devices collected in the war zones, known
Tribune Co. announced a restructuring of its publishing business Wednesday that will redeploy resources to focus on its digital business and operate more efficiently, resulting in nearly 700 job losses across the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and six other daily newspapers. The plan, which was outlined for Tribune Co. employees in a memo, seeks to integrate business units such as advertising, marketing, manufacturing and digital media under common leadership. It is aimed at offsetting annual publishing revenue declines of $75 million to $100 million, without diminishing editorial content, according to executives. But publishing staff positions, accounting for about 6
One Hawaii state legislator has what he thinks is a smashing idea for dealing with the state’s homeless population. State Rep. Tom Brower, a five-term Democrat representing Waikiki and Ala Moana, is walking around with a sledgehammer in his spare time so he can destroy abandoned shopping carts that may be used by the homeless in an effort to dissuade theft, Hawaii News Now reports. “I got tired of telling people I’m trying to pass laws,” Brower told the outlet. “I want to do something practical that will really clean up the streets.” Brower said he returns shopping carts in
But would they drink beer together? President Obama will award former President Bill Clinton the Medal of Freedom on Wednesday at the White House, a public display of admiration belied by the enduring tensions between the two men. Mr. Obama will bestow the nation’s highest civilian honor on Mr. Clinton for the work during his presidency and, more recently, as head of the Clinton Global Initiative. Fifteen other honorees will attend the ceremony in the East Room, but all eyes will be on the president and his sometime nemesis, the former president. It will be their first face-to-face encounter since
President Obama spends a busy Wednesday paying tribute to the legacy of the past and the politics of the present. In this case, the memory of President John F. Kennedy, and the problems with the new health care law. In the mid-morning, Obama will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation´s highest civilian honor. It´s the 50th anniversary of the medal created by President Kennedy, and Obama will include a tribute to JFK in his remarks. This year´s honorees include former president Bill Clinton, as well as television icon Oprah Winfrey, country music legend Loretta Lynn, civil rights activist Bayard
President Barack Obama told the Wall Street CEO Council Tuesday that his administration has "reined in spending" and "cut our deficits by more than half." "After years of trillion-dollar deficits we reined in spending, wound down two wars and began to change a tax code that I believe was too skewed towards the wealthiest among us at the expense of the middle class," said Obama. "And since I took office, we have now cut our deficits by more than half. Add it all and businesses like yours have created 7.8 million new jobs over the past 44 months, we´ve gone farther
Negligence? Absolutely. Incompetence? The case can be made. But scandalous? To suggest that the White House has willfully engaged in the intentional misleading of the public and an outrageous dereliction of its responsibilities to enforce the laws passed by Congress has been a bridge too far. Until recently. New revelations are now forcing even the most reluctant of President Barack Obama’s critics to concede that the Affordable Care Act’s implementation has evolved into a scandal. “I was not informed directly that the website would not be working, as the way it was supposed to,” Obama told reporters on November 14.
Barack Obama is the coolest president we’ve had since John F. Kennedy, at least according to conventional standards for such things. Obama has always been a brand as much as a politician, one that has been perceived as sleek, smart, and up to date. Then along came HealthCare.gov. Its failure to launch is a signal event in the long political battle over Obamacare and perhaps an inflection point in the president’s image. It’s hard to maintain a sense of truly being on the cutting edge of change when you can’t build a website. Obama’s cool was, in part, an artifact of world-class
MICHELLE OBAMA: I thought I wanted to be a pediatrician when I was really little and then I wasn´t that great at math and science so I switched to law because my mother told me that I like to argue a lot. But I realized in high school and in college that you don´t have to exactly know, you´re kind of always discovering yourself. So I studied law, I went to law to school, but was pretty clear I just wanted to be a good student. I wanted to know how to read and write and communicate, be able to
In an interview on BET last night with Bow Wow and Keshia Chante, First Lady Michelle Obama talked up her husband, President Barack Obama. "I always say my husband has got swag," said Mrs. Obama. "He’s got a little swag." The audience applauded. Mrs. Obama also said that the president of the United States "sings all the time." She continued, "Oh, yes, he’s in the bathroom all the time just singing." She also praised her husband. "[H]e has got a good voice." Here´s a transcript of that exchange:
A downbeat President Barack Obama repeatedly asked his worried supporters Monday night to help resurrect his spirits, following weeks of political disasters and personal humiliations caused by the cascading collapse of Obamacare. The distracted president railed against opponents and at one point appeared to forget the number of people in the Obamacare system during the rambling quarter-hour address. “My main message is I’m going to need your help, your energy, your faith, your ability to reach out to neighbors, kids and friends [and] co-workers,” he told listeners to the Internet broadcast arranged by his grass-roots group, Organizing for Action. But his worried
WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says she won’t wear shorts on Air Force One again because the one time she did, it created “a huge stink.”(snip)Mrs. Obama was asked about her biggest fashion regret. She said she’s always happy with her outfits but that, quote, “sometimes I forget I’m the first lady and I’m running around in shorts.” She recalled her family’s first White House vacation, to the Grand Canyon in August 2009. Mrs. Obama said her wearing shorts getting off the plane “created a huge stink because people were like, ‘she’s wearing shorts getting off of Air Force One.’” She said her thought
On Tuesday, President Barack Obama conceded that he will have to "remarket" and "rebrand" Obamacare as public confidence in him and the healthcare law he championed has plummeted. Speaking at the Wall Street Journal CEO Summit, Obama addressed the failures of the Obamacare rollout and said while he was confident that the healthcare model his administration built, which he claimed worked off of the "existing private insurance system," would succeed, the law would have to be rebranded. “We are going to have to obviously remarket and rebrand,” Obama said. “And that will be challenging in this political environment.” When he
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says everyone should stop talking so much about the 2016 presidential race, because doing so hurts President Obama, who´s only a year into his second term. "In this sense, I feel badly for President Obama. He just won a year ago, and everybody´s like, ´So, who´s next?´" Christie said Monday night at the Wall Street Journal CEO Council. "There is work to be done in this country. And as we shove him out the door, we minimize his ability to be an effective executive. And we shouldn´t do that." Even as he urged people to focus
The White House has admitted that it was wrong to promise that people would be able to their health care plans under Obamacare. "With respect to the pledge I made that if you like your plan you can keep it, I think -- you know, and I’ve said in interviews -- that there is no doubt that the way I put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate. It was not because of my intention not to deliver on that commitment and that promise. We put a grandfather clause into the law but it was insufficient," President Obama said
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says although some Democrats may be voting politically to distance themselves from Obamacare, they were still supporting the law and working in their districts to implement it. "This is history and the future and progress," she stated emphatically, "It stands right there as Social Security, Medicare, affordable health care, as a right, not a privilege for the few, but a right for the many." She was speaking Tuesday at an event sponsored by BuzzFeed. Pelosi acknowledged she was "really disappointed" that the technology behind the website failed, but said she was excited to see the program fully
President Barack Obama told a gathering of corporate executives Tuesday he´s confident that his model of health care will work in the end, but he said he´s going to have to "re-brand" it to sell it to a skeptical public. He didn´t use the word "Obamacare" once on Tuesday in talking about his health care law, but he mentioned the "Affordable Care Act" seven times. "So, look, I am confident that the model that we built, which works off of the existing private insurance system, is one that will succeed," Obama told the Wall Street Journal´s CEO Council Annual Meeting
