MSM Reports Hillary's 'Concussion' Excuse Without Slightest Hint of Skepticism
NewsBusters ^ | December 17, 2012 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 12/17/2012 8:08:48 AM PST by PJ-Comix

The dog ate my homework.

Or, in the case of Hillary Clinton, a "concussion" which she didn't even have checked out at a hospital is keeping her from testifying about the Benghazi fiasco on Capitol Hill. Yes, we are expected to believe that a Secretary of State can suffer a concussion and not have it checked out at a hospital. Remember Natasha Richardson? That actress suffered what seemed to be a minor head injury while taking ski lessons and refused medical attention and passed away a couple of days later as a result. Various mainstream sources conveniently bought into Hillary's excuse for not testifying on Benghazi but the overwhelming majority of the readers commenting weren't buying it.

Hi! This is H.R. Haldeman. Unfortunately I will be unable to testify about Watergate on Capitol Hill because I suffered a "concussion" for which I wasn't even hospitalized. Of course, you will uncritically report on this excuse as a fact. Right?

“Mrs. Clinton cannot make the hearing because she has left the water running in her bathroom! Sorry.”

But, seriously, I hope she’s OK.

Maybe she was in the end zone at the Vikings/Rams game Sunday and got a spiked ball to the face.

Aren’t we lucky these politicians are smarter than a first year med student?

This is how they plan on saving money through Obamacare - self-diagnosis.

Good grief, folks, the Hillabeast boinked her way into success, and would be a dime store lawyer without the Nobel Prize of Lying winner, Bubba.

Neither piece of excrement has an ounce of creativity, and neither has ever had a real job that cause the creation of any value.

They are slime.

The saddest thought is that the Obamadork is far, far more sleazy, less talented and has less morals than either of the Clintons.

So delay the hearing.
"We'll be ready to speak with you when you are able."

If nothing else that will drive the hag underground and we'll never have to hear from or see her again!

And, as noted, the media cares not and states the propaganda as fact. We need an off shore free media because we clearly don’t have one here. After another Obama term we will be Venezuela.

An elderly woman, sick with a stomach flu, very possibly dehydrated, faints and hits her head yet there is no admittance to any hospital.

Her doctor is ok with this?

Seems to me to be a pack of lies.

No glass for her - Now there's a woman who likes to have a drink!

Beer and wine, very fine. Beer and whisky - very risky!

It's got to be five o'clock somewhere!

Cheers!

They have allowed to her get away with murder, abuse of a corpse, perjury, suborning perjury, grand theft, theft of over 900 FBI files, and obstruction of justice. Why not this!

This woman is beyond belief. And they’ll let her get away with it. I agree that they should delay the hearings until her Royal Hilderbeast has recovered from her nasty “spill.” I want to watch her squirm.

You’d think this fatso was a contortionist in bed with another woman. She probably caught her feet in her Snap-On-Tools belt.

Either that or the Secretary of Steak didn’t want to testify.

I like that. Another thought....send in the two clowns that will testify. ROFL.

Everytime some new Adminstrative Witness opens their mouth, it just gets worse for them. They open more questions than they answer.

By the time they get to HILLARY (and they will), she will wish she had just gone in and testified in the first place.

Perfect Example was Susan Rice..& her mouth, now look at her.

I presume a physician made the diagnosis of concussion. It is a real entity, but made, especially in a high government official, is only make after other mass lesions or bleeding is ruled out. A thorough neurological examination would be the minimum examination, with followup, complimented with a CT scan. Where is the CT scan. Who is the physician who saw her and diagnosed her. Were drugs involved? Was alcohol involved? If this report is correct the diagnosis was not made at a hospital. I know that historically there were mobile CT scanners operational back in the '80's, but I have not been aware of mobile units for 15 years. So, the standard of care seems to have, at the minimum, been breached....unless this is a diversion. If she fell hard enough to sustain a 'bruised' brain, is there any outward evidence of trauma?..a bump, laceration, ecchymosis? Were medical records generated? What are the followup plans. Is a physician lying about physical examination. Falsifying medical records is violation of law. If there are no medical records, did she lie? Who was the physician who made the diagnosis?

If Hillary was injured badly enough to be forced to forgo a Congressonal hearing and put off all of the work the Congressmen, staffers, and others have put in to prepare for her examination, it should be self-evident that this is a real issue, not just a minor bump, there should be someone with guts enough in Congress to demand some level of proof, and not just the word of Hillary Clinton. Is she incompetent to carry out her duties of her office?

I think it is evident that this is a coverup and diversion from having to testify under oath. Hillary's ruse does not pass the smell test. But, we dare not call her obvious lie into question. So Congress cowers. The truth becomes the lie and that which is untrue becomes unassailable. This is Alice in Wonderland and we are in the looking glass. This is the reality in America today. This is beyond reason that the Clintons have redefined reality. Reality has become that which is declared by Hillary and Obama.

Solly. Mrs. crinton has forgotten how to speak engrish and must consult losetta stone before testifying.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

Obama, Hillary, Bubba, Emanuel, Durbin, Schumer, etc, - they’re awful, even despicable human beings, but the real problem is the press.

Hillary could have said she couldn’t testify because she’s pregnant, and they wouldn’t have batted an eye. If a Republican is involved they’ll make a federal case out of pointless crap (I remember a month’s worth of controversy over John Sununu only paying for half of trip to New York City at which he did both government and personal business), but Benghazi or Fast and Furious? Forget about it.

case of Hillary Clinton, a “concussion” which she didn’t even have checked out at a hospital

Ok. Now I am skeptical. I thought it was genuine and even prayed that she would be ok. However, now I feel dupped.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
Whatever, Hillary...lol

Let’s hope. I am assuming she and her crew need more time with that report-— to rehearse how not to contradict her other statements and how to hedge without lying.

BTW: It was reported that they may not give Congress that report. That led me to believe that State Dept might be trying to make a deal regarding the scope of her testimony and the questions she is asked.

Maybe an advantage of her not testifying now is that she will testify post-Christmas/New Year, when the country’s attention returns to “normal.”

OTOH, what are the implications of her testifying AFTER she leaves her post? Is that the plan?

You are thinking in terms of a two party system.

Try again with a political class, that is dead set on retaining power. They (The political class) can’t have a major failure on the part of either party - that would weaken the monopolistic grip.

So, they really cover for Hilliary. They feign opposition, while strengthening their hold on their political/elected positions.

Did you ever notice that if a congressman “plays ball” they get:
- committee appointments
- leadership positions
- Funding for re-election from the national party (DNC/RNC)
- The opposition party does not run a candidate against “ball players” in opposing party
- Reps who make waves, lose funding and have a strong well-funded candidate run against them

It is just about over, and if grass-roots conservatives don’t emerge and take some power, it will not end well.

Who can tell what the Clintons plan, if anything. Things with them are just serendipity, sorta. They are the product of the Flower children and all the HAPPENING's, woo lala, like wowie mowie man.

As I read this latest story on Benghazi, I am enraged. Four precious Americans are dead, and this administration has managed to prolong and avoid probing questions as to what went wrong and why and who gave orders to thwart efforts to assist and help the brave Navy Seals who fought and hoped help was on the way. That help never came! I recall President Obama promising those responsible would be brought to justice but that is not possible when the investigation is thwarted at every turn by those in this administration!

Where is Hillary Clinton and why has she not volunteered to assist and answer probing questions that the Secretary of State should willingly provide to the families and the American people?! Cover-up again?

I am currently reading the book “Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer”, by author Marinka Peschmann. The cover-ups documented in this book (over 300 footnotes) by the Clinton administration regarding the death of Vince Foster are disturbing, to say the least. The timing of the publication of this book is haunting. The cover-up tactics used then are eerily similar to the evasive and outrageous tactics playing out in the Benghazi investigation.

In Peschmann’s previous book, The Whistleblower, she sums up the premise of the book in these words: “The Obama administration is the Clinton administration on steroids.” Many of the players are the same and the tactics are all too familiar.

Below is an interview of Ms Peschmann on WCBM, discussing her book. I encourage you to listen:

http://www.marinkapeschmann.com/2012/12/11/media-alert-join-me-tomorrow-at-837am-et-on-the-sean-frank-show-wcbm-talk-radio/

Ms Peschmann’s message is cautionary, it is chilling and it is real. We have 4 dead Americans and their families and all Americans deserve answers.

I encourage Americans to read “Following Orders” and I hope many interviews are granted Ms. Peschmann. The author can be reached through her website: http://www.marinkapeschmann.com/

Prediction for Hilly’s testimony before Congress: “Due to my stroke/non-stroke/maybe-stroke plus maybe-concussion, ‘I don’t recall’ anything about the so-called Benghazi Massacre.”
