Republicans Defend Questioning
Hillary Clinton’s Health

Wall Street Journal, by Andrew Ackerman*

Original Article

Posted By:Avanti1, 5/18/2014 7:57:23 PM

Top Republican officials on Sunday defended raising questions about Hillary Clinton’s health and age as she weighs a presidential bid in 2016. “Health and age is fair game,” said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I’m not a doctor. What I do know is that the issue is going to come up as it does for any person running for president.” Added former Vice President Dick Cheney, who appeared on Fox: “Any presidential candidate or vice presidential candidate is going to have to answer questions about their health.” The comments come after longtime GOP political operative Karl Rove,

Comments:

Why do Democrats repeatedly attack the messenger and motives instead of acknowledging legitimate issues and responding to those issues?

I am tired of deflection and obfuscation instead of adult debate based on facts, logic and reason!

Please post properly & to word limit as shown. LCom Staff.

The DemocRATs can save their phony indignation for when Repubs. start fabricating issues like GWB being AWOL from the Air National Guard or Romney being responsible for someone´s death - until then, they can go stuff it.

It is a perfectly legitimate issue that has no business being raised now, when the focus should be on Benghazi and Boco Harem. Raise it now and it goes away. There will be no records, no doctors confirming, no nothing.

Meanwhile she sits far and away ahead of Rove´s establishment choices for 2016.

Conservatives can beat her, liberal republicans cannot without taking her on on issues. You cannot swiftboat HRC, it will not work.

The commiecrats were predictably brutal towards presidential candidate Michele Bachmann when they found out she suffered from migraines. It´s perfectly acceptable to rake conservative women over the coals when it comes to health questions. Communists , of course, get a free pass.

The time line as previously reported
was that Hillary had the flu,
became " severely dehydrated " and fainted.
Why the Secretary of State was allowed
to become so dehydrated that she collapsed
..is a legitimate question.
Supposedly, she then stayed home for two week to recover.
Two weeks ????
That defies credulity.
Then on a follow up exam, a cerebral venous thrombosis was diagnosed.
If the original concussion was so benign and asymptomatic,
why the follow up MRI ?
The clot between her brain and skull was treated with anti coagulants.
Is she still on blood thinners ?
This week , her husband said Hillary suffered
a " terrible concussion " that required " six months
of very serious work to get over ".
" Terrible " ?? " Very serious " ?? " Six months " ??
There are many unanswered questions about
Hillary´s health .
How many people faint with the flu
to the point where they suffer a concussion and brain clot ?
Why wasn´t she properly treated before she got so dehydrated ?
Logical minds wonder if she suddenly
fainted / fell due to an undisclosed medical condition
and the whole flu story is a cover.

Lady, you´re applying for the highest office in the land. You have everyone´s lives in your hands. Get it? It´s a big job. Get it? It ain´t just a chance to throw your weight around and go to a lot of glitzy parties and thumb your nose at conservatives. So, you need to be honest (for once) about your health.

I´ve always thought the entire story was one heaping lie, told to get her out of the spotlight that Benghazi was casting. She was too indisposed with her flu and her fall and her blood clot to appear and answer questions about her incompetence --which got four Americans murdered --oh, excuse me. Only three was murdered. One died of smoke inhalation.

I´m still not sure that the whole faint/blood clot isn´t a lie. You think the Clinton´s couldn´t pay of doctors to lie, falsify medical records?

Don´t you ever put anything past the power mad Clintons.

Anything critical of Dear Leader Barack Hussein = racist. Anything critical of The Smartest Woman In The World = sexist.

Democrats = good intentions. Republicans = mean and greedy.

These are immutable laws of nature, so there´s no use complaining about it.

In Washington, growing chorus calls for
Iraq´s Maliki to go
Reuters, by Patricia Zengerle    Original Article
Posted By: Avanti1- 6/18/2014 7:48:56 PM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama came under pressure from U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday to persuade Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to step down over what they see as failed leadership in the face of an insurgency threatening his country. As Obama held an hour-long meeting with congressional leaders on U.S. options in Iraq, administration officials joined a chorus of criticism of Maliki, faulting him for failing to heal sectarian rifts that militants have exploited. Army General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. military´s Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a congressional hearing that Maliki´s Shi´ite-led government had asked for U.S. air power

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., repeatedly put the blame for the Veterans Affairs scandal on former President George W. Bush, while arguing that her party has worked hard for veterans in recent years. Pelosi took a shot at Bush while saying that the scandal is a high priority for Obama. "He sees the ramifications of some seeds that were sown a long time ago, when you have two wars over a long period of time and many, many more, millions more veterans," she told reporters during her Thursday press briefing. "And so, I know that he is upset about it."

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem.

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
