Fears for ailing Hillary Clintons rush to bedside amid ‘brain’ clot
NY Post ^ | January 1, 2013 | GEORGETT ROBERTS, JENNIFER GOULD KEIL & DAN MANGAN

Posted on 01/01/2013 6:57:59 AM PST by COUNTrecount

Doctors treating Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton revealed yesterday that she had a life-threatening blood clot near her brain.

The disturbing news came as a clearly anguished Chelsea Clinton visited her mom’s bedside along with her dad, former President Bill Clinton, whose concern was etched on his face as he left New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Top oncologist Dr. Marc Straus told The Post, “Anytime you get a clot near your brain, it’s dangerous.”

Clinton, 65, suffered a concussion early last month when she fell in her Washington, DC, home after becoming dehydrated from a stomach virus, her staff has said.

Straus, the oncologist, said that “a ‘routine’ MRI is not routine unless there is some kind of symptom” Clinton was suffering from.

“It’s a little bit odd that there would be a routine MRI unless she had symptoms,” he said. “I suspect something led them to do the tests that we don’t know about.”

So you have an oncologist making statements and questioning thee use of an MRI for diagnosis, why not a neurologist,AND HILLARY! FALLS AT HER HOME IN DC, AND IS BEING TREATED IN NYC? So since she can't fly, how was she transported? Ambulance, car, train?

This doesn't add up at all.

Sure it does. They will operate to remove the clot, and as a result of the surgery, Hillary will suffer minor memory loss - just enough to be unable to remember anything about Benghazi.

I always thought an oncologist was a cancer specialist........

This whole thing is weird, IMO.

Laughable. No doubt the same concern he had at Ron Brown's funeral.

We saw this sort of thing during the BJ Clintoon administration—Nothing more than a clumsy and transparent attempt to gin-up sympathy for Hillary!

Taking no chances with the facts out of Benghazi.

Chelsea, if you have even two working brain cells, you’d separate yourself from those that spawned you, get private protection and tell all to DRUDGE.

HILLARY Clinton allegedly has brain cancer.

On Sunday, the Secretary of State was hospitalized in New York City and disclosed that she was battling a blood clot that had formed following her head concussion earlier this month!

“Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion,” Philippe Reines, a State Department senior adviser said. “They will determine if any further action is required.”

But, according to American tabloid the National Enquirer, Clinton’s health worries are far worse than we realize!

“Behind the scenes, Hillary has suffered blinding headaches, problems with her vision and memory, plus terrifying blackouts – and those closest to her say she’s hiding a brain cancer secret,” a source revealed.

“If Hillary is indeed diagnosed with brain cancer, the fear that she could die in a manner of months has devastated those in her inner circle.

“This has been covered up for months, but details of Hillary’s cancer situation are beginning to leak out, and it’s the real reason she’s giving up her position as secretary of state.”

Whenever a senior member of the Mafia getaway arrested, he suddenly comes down with an ailment that prevents him from testifying or being sent to prison. Hillary is just following this same script.

I expect to see Hillary in a wheelchair with an oxygen mask.

Guarantee she makes a miraculous recovery in time to run for President in 2016.

Oh, and I forgot! He's a TOP oncologist!

Tip from the inner workings of the medical establishment conspiracy: TOP guys don't comment to the press on patients they haven't treated. They also don't comment to the press on patients they HAVE seen. They are therefore pretty much unknown, except to their brother wizards.

And if a TOP guy catches the fame bug? He ceases to be one, pretty quickly.

I think this article is badly written.

The writer interviewed an oncologist, a cancer doctor? So I don’t think this is a doctor at all involved in her treatment.

Plus the article says the clot is in a vein behind the ear. Which leads one to “assume” the auricle vein, which leads to the jugular and then to the lungs. So a pulmonary embolism is at risk, not a stroke.

Figure that the NY Post is surfing for doctors. Earlier they make mention of Hillary’s medical team. Straus wasn’t listed. Just for fun, a quick google shows he’s a hematologist and oncologiist in Chappaqua—

http://www.ucomparehealthcare.com/drs/marc_straus/

They also quoted a neurologist from UC-San Diego...

Headline made no sense until I realized that there should be an apostrophe or semi-colon after Hillary. Or “Clintons rush to bedside amid ‘brain’ clot” was a sub headline.

Clinton's testimony means nothing at all. It's who gave the "stand down order"....and there's only one person that can give it.

I don't like FR when it puts politics above human life. She's sick and I wish her well no matter what.

The oncologist has nothing to do with Hillary’s case. He’s an independent Dr that the Post questioned. Why they chose an oncologist is a question the POst can answwer.

The MRI would be done as a follow-up to her concussion to compapre to the previous MRI. She’s getting extra treatment that an ordinary patient wouldn’t receive.

Yes, and if she fell in DC, how did she get to NYC for treatment, unless she never was in DC, and was on a plane that landed in NYC so that she could get emergency treatment there.

This doesn't add up at all.

The Three Stooges did a skit where a gentleman was trying to tutor Larry in basic arithmetic. "If I give you one dollar," says the tutor, "and your father gives you another, how many dollars will you have?"

"One," replies Larry.

Says the tutor, "You don't know your arithmetic!" Replies Larry, "You don't know my father!"

And to this nice oncologist I say, "You don't know the Clintons."

“If Hillary is indeed diagnosed with brain cancer, the fear that she could die in a manner of months has devastated those in her inner circle.

If she dies, is she still eligible to run for President? I know she can still vote in Chicago... Her new address will be a bush planted next to the Kennedy Expressway, probably somewhere near the Ohio Street exit.

FTA:

Straus, the oncologist, said that “a ‘routine’ MRI is not routine unless there is some kind of symptom” Clinton was suffering from.(My emphasis)

“It’s a little bit odd that there would be a routine MRI unless she had symptoms,” he said. “I suspect something led them to do the tests that we don’t know about.”

Since the beginning I've suspected it's brain cancer. The Post's consulting an oncologist, and the National Enquirer's consistently reporting it's probably brain cancer make my suspicions even stronger.

Let’s see—we now hear that in addition to a blood clot in her brain/leg/and wherever else has been mentioned, we now hear that she’s dying of cancer.

I don’t know what the deal is, but I do know something serious must be happening.

I think we are seeing the cover-up before we know what they are covering up!

Thanks for the pics of Slick Willie being all emotional and stuff at Ron Brown's funeral. I thought of the exact same thing when I read about his face “etched with concern”. Please. That just stretches it. He may be concerned about Chelsea since it is her mother but beyond that, I just don't see it. I also absolutely loved the map showing the exact location of Hillary's blot clot. Isn't that location and the spot near the border where Brian Terry died the same place Obamalamadingdong has blood on his hands?

This is all very strange but evil is a powerful force so I'm sure she recovers and runs in 2016 unless the Dims gain control of the House and vote to repeal the 22nd Amendment. I think they will. They worship this POS POTUS like he is their God so they want the good times to keep rolling on.

She isn’t afraid to be photographed with a drink in her hand, so I don’t see why we don’t see photos of her in her hospital bed. You would think they’d be cranking those photos out to prove how sick she is.

Yes, and I am wondering how she was transported from DC, where it is reported that she fell, to NYC, Columbia Presbyterian hospital, for treatment.With a brain clot she surely could not fly.

Are there better “specialists” there?

Two Top Cancer Centers

NewYork-Presbyterian features two of the country’s top cancer centers: the National Cancer Institute-designated Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center of New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center and the Weill Cornell Cancer Center of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

Latest Treatments, Clinical Trials

Our patients have access to the latest anti-cancer drugs, novel and targeted therapies, and emerging minimally invasive surgical procedures. Our world class physicians are leading a wide array of clinical trials to ensure our patients receive the most advanced treatments for cancer. In addition, our comprehensive support programs address the emotional and physical challenges faced by cancer patients.

"Yes, and if she fell in DC, how did she get to NYC for treatment, unless she never was in DC, and was on a plane that landed in NYC so that she could get emergency treatment there." Your point is well taken. Indeed it corrorborates the December 30 Natinal Enquirer story that "Hillary is going through a series of top secret medical tests that would diagnose brain cancer." Further, according to that article, "To diagnose a tumor Hillary wold undergo a CT scan or MRI of the brain[.]" She's just undergone a CT scan of her brain.

13 The dragon[a] stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.

Hillary is a Beast.
