Might Hillary Clinton Have Suffered a Stroke? A Probabilistic Analysis
American Thinker ^ | 05/14/2014 | Jason Kissner

Posted on 05/14/2014 6:54:28 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Might Hillary Clinton Have Suffered a Stroke?

Via the Drudge-linked PageSix, the latest from the Medical Doctor-Architect Karl Rove:

Karl Rove stunned a conference when he suggested Hillary Clinton might have brain damage.

Onstage with Robert Gibbs and CBS correspondent and “Spies Against Armageddon” co-author Dan Raviv, Rove said Republicans should keep the Benghazi issue alive.

He said if Clinton runs for president, voters must be told what happened when she suffered a fall in December 2012.

The official diagnosis was a blood clot. Rove told the conference near LA Thursday, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”

Americans should think more carefully than Rove about just what Clinton’s illness may have been (and what her susceptibility to illness currently is). 

The Clintons do not exactly tell the truth all the time (but what difference does it make, right?).

And, clearly, if Hillary wants to be president she has an overwhelming incentive to conceal an illness more serious than that which has been publically described.

That much is obvious.

EXCERPT FROM WASHINGTON POST:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2014/05/13/why-did-hillary-clinton-wear-those-glasses-after-her-concussion/

Technically, Republican strategist Karl Rove was correct when he suggested that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suffered a “traumatic brain injury” after a fall in 2012. A concussion is the most common form of mild traumatic brain injury, according to experts in the field. It is caused by a blow to the head or an action that bounces the brain around in the skull, such as whiplash from a car accident.

Symptoms can include headache, dizziness, sensitivity to light and blurred vision, all of which can occur even when MRI and CT scans are normal, said Steven Galetta, a neuro-opthalmologist at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York.

Funny that the Press suddenly doesn’t care about a person’s health. Technically this started with Obama. I still think he has some kind of STD and that’s why we never got his records.

It was just 2 months ago that Christie’s health was a big issue.

I remember that Ted Kennedy wanted to have Reagan removed from office “because of his health.”

Hillary has Wet Brain. She’s a raging alcoholic. The campaign will probably kill her. What difference does it make?

Forget the brain: Hillary is obese.

Hillary has about the same BMI as Chris Christy. No joke.

I don’t hear Barbara Walters asking Hillary is she’s too fat to run (like she did Christy).

Funny how they would go after W’s drinking, even though he quit years earlier, and you never saw any pictures of him imbibing.

Now we literally have hundreds of pictures of Hillary partaking, and nary a word.

“Hillary had been suffering from vision issues related to her blackouts and memory loss, but additional testing resulted in a diagnosis that she might have a rare optical nerve condition that will lead to blind­ness,” explained a family insider. “She’s keeping this diagnosis a se­cret as she tries to figure out what to do next. Meanwhile, Bill and Chelsea are beside themselves with worry. They can’t believe this is happening.”

Yeah, it’s the enquirer, but they have been correct as often as the MSM.

It would be entirely appropriate if Hillary’s lie of a political career ended in a whopper.

I'm no fan of Hillary Clinton. In fact, I think she is a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist and even a worse threat to America than Obama as president. (Obama is incompetent and over his head so that might be what saves us from him doing permanent damage.)

However, I'm not sure I want to join the Hillary-is-an-alcoholic bandwagon. Is there any hard evidence of that? So she likes to drink on a regular basis. So did Winston Churchill. I don't think we need to go down this particular road.

Actually, it’s just one fresnel lens, in the non-dominant left eye. Exactly as described in: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/771807_2 for treating double vision.

There was history within the Democrat party of concealing diminished mental capacity among highly placed functionaries, and treating these luminaries with great deference, allowing “spokespersons” to represent what they would have said were they able to stand up and utter a comprehensible or coherent statement.

One prime example was Woodrow Wilson, he of Great War fame, who “kept us out of the war”. On September 25, 1919, and again on September 25, 1919, he suffered a series of strokes that left him almost totally incapacitated, confined to bed and communicating with the outside world through his second wife, Edith Galt Wilson. Or at least, what she was communicating was attributed to the great and wizardly mind of Wilson. He was essentially a vegetable for several months. Even after February, 1920, when his true condition became known, his appearances were few and perfunctory, and despite all his previous urging for the “Fourteen Points” and “The League of Nations”, neither of these plans ever made any lasting effect on the world, as he was not available to be their advocate.

Enter Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless. Has she, or has she not, already suffered a stroke, creating a serious reflection upon her capacity to serve in any capacity? Her outburst at the Benghazi hearing in response to Senator Ron Johnson’s question about why the narrative about a spontaneous demonstration over the Prophet Muhammed video was not corrected was, “With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night who decide to kill some Americans, what difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.”

Herself has had over a year and a half, and STILL cannot come up with a realistic answer to that inquiry. And so long as Herself cannot admit that this was planned and carried out as an act of Islamic jihadist terrorism, the question shall not be answered coherently.

It's not the thickness of the lens, because that would be the same no matter what. It's the type of lens that is what is different. Check out the left eye vs the right eye in the newer photos. The left eye has a prismatic fresnel lens, you can see a little light scattering from it. The right eye still has a regular prescription lens.

For reference, here is a good picture of fresnel projector lens that shows the same kind of light effect:

I’m not a Doctor, but I would take a strong look at autoimmune. If it goes to Stage 2, there’s no cure and you die.

I tried that once, when I came of age many moons ago. Going home on leave, waiting for the ferry to Bremerton, I ordered a shot. Couldn’t finish it.

There’s no way of knowing is she has brain damage, since she’s a Democrat. May not even register on an EEG. Probably can’t even pass a Turing test.

And there have been reports in recent years, that many knew that FDR was very sick when he ran for his 4th term in 1944, but this news was not made public. As it turned out, FDR died only five months after his last re-election.

And, clearly, if Hillary wants to be president.
Make that the socialist party must get her elected at any cost they are so close to total control of the government.
Think the VA healthcare has problems wait until Obamacare kicks in at full speed they don’t need the sick and weak they have an agenda that must be completed soon they can’t let fifty years of work go down the tubes.
