Shame on pundits for mocking
Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton´s head injuries

Seattle Times, by Thanh Tan

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/2/2013 4:01:29 PM

The pundits making a mockery of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s head injuries ought to be ashamed of themselves. These commentators contend Clinton is offering excuses to avoid tough questions over the deadly September attack on a U.S. consulate office in Libya. (Snip) On Dec. 17, Fox News contributor John Bolton accused Clinton of feigning "diplomatic illness." One day later, the New York Post published a headline calling her condition a "head fake."On the air, Charles Krauthammer and Sean Hannity have joked about Clinton´s "acute Benghazi allergy." Outgoing Congressman Allen West, R-Florida,

If she had testified before she had the flu, we wouldn´t be having this conversation now.

If she had appeared on all those Sunday talk shows (rather than Susan Rice), we wouldn´t be having this conversation now.

If Hillary didn´t have a reputation for being less than truthful, we wouldn´t be having this conversation now.

If Hillary were a Republican, we would be having this conversation now.

These are Hillary´s self-righteous friends writing screeds to defend her. We still haven´t seen any doctors telling us what´s going on. We have only her and her handlers´ statements. We still know nothing.

Why disappear for 3 weeks? Why not have her doctor confirm the fact that she had a concussion. Her situation may be legitimate but why the secrecy for so long.

Hillary could have been more open about what happened. What´s so hard about that? Unless???

But all the Clintons have long Caesar´s-wife´s-reputations for purity, right?

And now we´d all better apologize for doubting her on those 1,000-plus FBI files in her bedroom closet, and the "I read the Wall Street Journal" futures trades.

And no more snarky cracks about Chelsea "Hubbell."

Shame on the lapdog media for forgiving the unforgiveable and ignoring the deaths of brave americans while this shrew ran for cover. Than, to top off the outrage, to call this absolute failure (see Egypt, Libya, Syria, Russia, China, etc., etc.,) the "most accomplished Secretary of State ever" is dispicable. Hillary is one of the worst of a bad Obama lot and no amount of aspirin will change that.

We are so sorry for having not believed Mrs. Clinton, but she and her husband have lied so many times that our assumptions were just natural. Please forgive!

Now we do hope that Mrs. Clinton will testify on Benghazi before she leaves office, if her memory serves her.

The entire media establishment and every liberal in the country should be ashamed of themselves for the horribly cruel remarks they have made about every prominent Republican and their families in the last 20 years. The hypocrisy of these people is astounding. So Thanh, why don´t you be the first to admit that instead of lecturing the rest of us. I don´t personally care what happens to Hillary Clinton. Her criminal stupidity in Benghazi took 4 people´s lives.

Ignoramouses masquerading as wise pundits and reporters like this woman have helped get our nation to the pathetic shape it is in. Why doesn´t she question why Hillary´s blood clot wasn´t diagnosed right away? Hillary is the Secretary of State and had she taken a fall sufficient to cause a concussion one would think that protocol would be such that she would immediately have a CAT scan, at the very least. A case of the stomach flu leading to cerebral thrombosis, meaning that her brain´s in a blender and has turned to jello...again...just in time for the Benghazi hearings, is a little rich. Perhaps I should be ashamed to doubt this known liar and her flying monkeys, but I´m not.

#6 may be on to something. I have a very close friend in the hospital who was recently placed into a medically-induced coma, again, to help reduce brain swelling.

One of the nurses contacted me and wanted to know if my friend spoke Latin. When I replied ´no´ and asked why, she told me my friend was speaking fluent Latin while in the coma.

Perhaps, if the concussion and blood clot story is true, Hillary is speaking fluently in Conservatism, channeling the Federalist papers and doctors are concerned and can´t explain the condition.

Stranger things have happened.

When someone lies to you, you have trouble believing them next time, when some like Bill and Hill have lied hundreds of times often under oath you end up NEVER believing a word out of their mouths. As to the Famous Hillary quote "I really don´t Recall"anyone can make $100k in a day with cattle futures call it beginners luck.
The whole Idea is to scare Republicans on the committee so they won´t ask the tough questions. Clinton Defense Plan #1, your only picking on her cause she´s a frail little women..

Possibly when she was "diagnosed" with a concussion ( by someone ? ) instead of going to the hospital and getting the proper tests and treatment at THAT time, if necessary, we would think more kindly of her situation. Whether we believe her, trust her, and/or support her, no one wants to see another person in a dire medical condition. We who do not support her simply believe she has been avoiding her testimony before Congress. and THAT´s a fact. We do not wish her to be ill or injured.

She´s NOT ill or injured. Tan is a succubus and believes anything said by their gods/goddesses.

She, Tan and their ilk have lied so manny times, a sane person cannot believe any spoken word or seen action. You have to always ask, what´s behind the curtain? What´s going on that´s being kept from me?

Just because H gets a doctor to do a couple of tests and say something that she scripted for him/her, doesn´t make it true.

Any sane person looks at a plethora of information / sources before making a decision. The first question is: What was the timeline? minute by minute - sick, fell, Dr., tests. Until she does a better job of covering her tracks, the timeline doesn´t add up to coincide with her purported injuries / released statements.

She doesn´t have the same medical care we have. She doesn´t need to see her primary physician to get a referral to a specialist.

As the search for the missing flight MH370 enters its 10th day with few clues as to its whereabouts, the New Straits Times said today the Boeing 777-200ER dropped 5,000 feet (1,500m) to evade commercial radar detection. In an exclusive story, the government-backed paper said investigators analysing MH370’s flight data revealed that the 200-tonne, fully laden twinjet descended 1,500m or even lower to evade commercial (secondary) radar coverage after it turned back from its flight path en route to Beijing. (Snip) Investigators poring over MH370’s flight data had said the plane had flown low and used “terrain masking” as it

With the world waiting for the official results of Crimea´s referendum on leaving Ukraine and joining Russia, news anchor Dmitry Kiselyov took to the Rossiya 1 news channel to put the situation into a broader geopolitical context for views. One part of his explanation, however, has caught a lot of attention: Kiselyov explained to his viewers that Russia is the only country capable of turning the United States into "radioactive ashes." He then went on to use animated maps to show exactly how Russia would automatically respond with nuclear missiles if command and control were attacked or disabled by a U.S. attack.

Washington - The Obama administration more often than ever censored government files or outright denied access to them last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, according to a new analysis of federal data by The Associated Press. The administration cited more legal exceptions it said justified withholding materials and refused a record number of times to turn over files quickly that might be especially newsworthy. Most agencies also took longer to answer records requests, the analysis found. The government´s own figures from 99 federal agencies covering six years show that half way through its second term,

Vladimir Putin has won. In Russia, support for his war in Ukraine is overwhelming. And his approval rating has finally recovered after falling drastically in December 2011, when the Russian protest movement erupted. Putin claimed reelection to his third term as president in March 2012, as mass demonstrations were taking place in cities and towns across Russia. Official tallies said he won with 63 percent of the vote, but independent exit polls suggested he captured about 50 percent — hardly a show of overwhelming support for a virtually unopposed candidate (none of the four opponents he handpicked for the ballot

Secretary of State John Kerry urged Russia on Sunday to pull back its military forces and to let Ukrainians undertake reforms that would address the rights of minorities and determine how political power is to be shared. The White House also stressed that Russia faces penalties that will hurt its economy and diminish its influence in the world if President Vladimir Putin doesn´t back down in Crimea. In a phone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Sunday, Kerry reiterated the United States would not recognize the results of a referendum taking place in Crimea that would allow it

This weekend’s hymn appears to be “Democrats in Trouble.” Follow along with Jonathan Martin and Ashley Parker of the New York Times: Democrats are becoming increasingly alarmed about their midterm election fortunes amid President Obama’s sinking approval ratings, a loss in a special House election in Florida last week and millions of dollars spent by Republican-aligned groups attacking the new health law. Appearing in the chorus: Maureen Dowd: With the health care sign-up period coming to an end this month, Democrats in Congress are looking over at the White House and realizing that the president is not only

Washington - An experimental drug made from snail venom has shown early signs of promise in numbing pain, raising hopes in the hunt for new, non-addictive medications, researchers said Sunday. The drug, which has not been tested yet on humans, was judged to be about 100 times more potent than morphine or gabapentin, which are currently considered the gold standard for chronic nerve pain. The active ingredient, conotoxin, comes from carnivorous cone snails, which are common in the western Pacific and Indian Ocean. The marine animals can reach out and stab prey, injecting a venom that paralyzes fish long enough

Putin appears to be using elite commandos—Spetsnaz—to spearhead his stealth move into Crimea and, perhaps, beyond. Forget the military forces massed on the border and brief incursions into Ukrainian territory and airspace. Russia is invading Ukraine in the shadows. The same special operations forces that appear to be rigging the election in Crimea are quietly escalating tensions inside other parts of eastern Ukraine. (Snip) The forces behind these operations, according to U.S. officials briefed on the updates in Ukraine, are likely the Spetsnaz, the Russian military’s highly trained saboteurs, spies and special operations forces who may change the face—and the borders—of Ukraine without once showing the Russian

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges. Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained. Obama was careful to specify that people who can´t afford Obamacare will not suffer a

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) may be popular among hard-line conservatives nationally, but back home he’s in some hot water. According to an Emerson College poll, his favorability is underwater, by a margin of 43 to 48 percent. Moreover, his favorable/unfavorable rating with women is 39 to 50 percent. I asked the poll director for further detail and found: Republicans: 74 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable ~Democrats: 8 percent favorable, 82 percent unfavorable ~Independents: 38 percent favorable, 50 percent unfavorable

SAN FRANCISCO - Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday called on the Republican Party to become more inclusive on issues like immigration. "We have a responsibility to those who do not yet have the liberties and the rights that we enjoy," Rice told a cheering crowd at the annual gathering of California Republicans in the San Francisco suburb of Burlingame. "We cannot abandon them ... We were once them." She did not offer a specific policy idea. The speech by Rice, who was secretary of state under President George W. Bush, was the highlight of the second day of

Here´s an astonishing poll: David Freddoso at Conservative Intelligence Briefing links to a report by the Washington Post´s Aaron Blake that West Virginia 3rd district incumbent Rep. Nick Rahall trails Republican challenger state Sen. Evan Jenkins by a 54-percent to 40-percent margin. The poll was conducted by the Tarrance Group, a Republican firm which, like several Democratic and other Republican firms, has had a good record for reliability over the years. This is astonishing for several reasons. Rahall, first elected in 1976, is now the seventh most senior member of the House, with three of the more senior members retiring

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

Late night comedian Bill Maher told his HBO “Real Time” audience on Friday that God was a “psychotic mass murderer.” He made the comments during a conversation on the biblical story of Noah and the upcoming Hollywood version of it that’s about to hit the big screen. “But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God,” Mr. Maher said, adding, “What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at?

It’s been less than six months since Bret Stephens used a version of this headline, but four events in the last week have caused it to scream in my mind. Before I get into those four events, let me say that I understand the only way to stay remotely sane in Washington, D.C., is to ignore 85 percent of whatever is trending at any given moment. That said, there are times anyone less isolated than a Carthusian monk is unavoidably exposed to “news” that 25 years ago would be considered fit only for National Enquirer.

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive. Speaking at a Republican confab, he said that comprehensive immigration reform passed in the Senate and rejected by

An interview yesterday offers proof that Sarah Palin has really gotten under Obama’s skin. In the midst of a friendly on-the-air radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, President Obama offered us a rare glimpse inside the presidential mind, revealing how deeply he was stung by the gibes he has received ever since wearing mom jeans when throwing out the first pitch at the 2009 All Star Game. In the midst of a discussion of his recent shopping trip to The Gap, the President stated: “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” (snip) It is quite obvious that the reason the 2009 mockery

BOSTON- Boston´s Irish-American mayor will not march in the city´s St. Patrick´s Day parade on Sunday after failing to hammer out a deal with organizers to allow a group of gay and lesbian activists to march openly. Mayor Marty Walsh had tried to negotiate a deal with organizers, the conservative Allied War Veteran´s Council, to allow members of MassEquality, one of Massachusetts´ largest gay activist groups, to join the parade. "So much of our Irish history has been shaped by the fight against oppression," Walsh, the city´s first Irish-American mayor in 20 years, said in a statement. "As mayor of
