    Anderson Cooper conducted a phone interview with Hillary Clinton on Monday. He began by referencing Bill Clinton’s recent comment that over the years that Hillary has become dehydrated and faint. CBS reports: Asked if there was any chance her faintness on Sunday could be a sign of some more “serious” illness, Clinton said he did not believe that was the case. “Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors,” he said, “because frequently—well not frequently, rarely—but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to...

    Bill Clinton addressed concerns over Hillary Clinton's diagnosis of pneumonia, saying there was “nothing more to know” about the candidate's health and even questioning the fitness of her opponent. "I have talked to her doctor, who is extremely competent and who has been in touch with all the people who help her, you know, with all other things over the years," Clinton told Rose on Monday night. "There is just nothing there. All of her health indicators are good. She's very strong. She's exercised a lot. And unlike me, she sleeps well at night. I mean she sleeps long hours,...

  • FIrst Aid: Fainting

    09/12/2016 12:12:06 PM PDT · by MNDude · 20 replies
    Position the person on his or her back. If the person is breathing, restore blood flow to the brain by raising the person's legs above heart level — about 12 inches (30 centimeters) — if possible. Loosen belts, collars or other constrictive clothing. To reduce the chance of fainting again, don't get the person up too quickly. If the person doesn't regain consciousness within one minute, call 911 or your local emergency number. Check the person's airway to be sure it's clear. Watch for vomiting. Check for signs of circulation (breathing, coughing or movement). If absent, begin CPR. Call 911...

    Hillary Clinton's fainting episode at a 9/11 memorial Sunday morning was preceded by months of Matt Drudge, the proprietor of the Drudge Report, claiming that Hillary's health is worse than she lets on to the public. [Snip] The Drudge Report prominently featured stories on Clinton's coughing episode the same day, earning criticism from the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza. "Led by Drudge, there have been questions circulating in the conservative media - and among Trump surrogates like Rudy Giuliani = that 'something' is wrong with Clinton for months," Cillizza wrote in an article titled "Can we just stop talking about Hillary...
  • Is It Really Possible To Faint From Heat, As Clinton Claims?

    During a 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York City, Hillary Clinton reportedly began to feel unwell and needed to leave. As she was entering a waiting vehicle, video shows aides helping her into the car as her legs seemed to buckle beneath her. Naturally, speculation about that buckling flamed out all over social media. People who dislike Clinton leaped to point to what they view as yet more evidence that she’s too elderly or frail or ill or something to be president. Those who want to tamp down that kind of speculation asserted that it was a hot day and...

    And Out You Go! Why Fainting Is So Common in Church Msgr. Charles Pope • May 24, 2016 • In my over 26 years as a priest (even longer serving in some capacity at the Holy Liturgy) I have witnessed more than a few people faint. Some just slump over; others go out with a real bang. Weddings are a big source of fainting spells, but just about any long Mass produces its share of “lights out” experiences. Some years ago, when I was serving as First Assistant Deacon for a Pontifical Solemn High Mass in the Basilica, we...
  • AP editors: Obama relies on staged propaganda photos [Is Pravda Turning On Its Master?]

    Editors of The Associated Press condemned the White House’s refusal to give photojournalists real access to President Obama, who prefers to circulate press release-style pictures taken by his own paid photographers.These official photographs are little more than propaganda, according to AP director of photography Santiago Lyon.The AP has only been permitted to photograph the president in the Oval Office on two occasions. Both were during his first term. All other pictures of Obama in his office were taken by White House photographers and distributed to the press.Previous administrations were less strict about photos, undermining Obama’s frequent claim that he strives...

    By now you’ve probably seen the video of a young woman nearly passing out during President Barack Obama’s health care speech in the Rose Garden Monday. And although she recovered quickly from her dizzy spell, and many have moved on from her story, here’s a tiny but important detail you may not have heard about her: She is still not sure if she will enroll in Obamacare. Her name is Karmel Allison. She’s from California. She’s pregnant. And she has Type I diabetes. Although she’s not sure whether she’ll switch over from her current plan, she says she likes having...

    I know what you’re thinking: it’s the perfect allegory, right? Woman falls ill, “Big Healthcare.Gov” is there to catch her as she’s falling. Oh, and BTW, her name is “Karmel” – how perfect is that!! Not too dark, not too light: just right! A little too perfect, say the usual critics (Tea Party Anarchists). They’re off, spinning their usual, unfounded, conspiracy theories. You know how they plot their little scenarios by now: they’ll claim that BO’s Big Brains and otherwise useful idiots advisors wrote the fake faint right into the script so Barry can come to her aid. As they...

    President Barack Obama helped a pregnant woman who began to faint during his speech about health care reforms today, joking 'That's what happens when I talk too long.' Mr Obama reached out to catch prospective Affordable Care Act beneficiary Karmel Allison who was standing directly behind him as he discussed the glitches of the new healthcare website in the Rose Garden of the White House. Around 25 minutes into the speech, Ms Allison became unsteady and started to lose consciousness. At that point, the President turned around and helped catch her before she actually fainted. 'I got you. You're OK,'...

    Republicans are 'not giving up' on BenghaziBy Julian Pecquet - 12/15/12 03:24 PM ET Republican lawmakers are vowing to keep pressing the administration on Benghazi despite Susan Rice’s decision to drop her bid to become secretary of State. “We'll continue to seek answers,” a Republican Senate aide told The Hill. “We're not giving up on it.” Rice’s decision to step aside averted a contentious confirmation fight with Republican senators that might have pointed to an end to the political battle over the U.S. consulate attack. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations had become the flash-point for criticism since describing...

    BIG SKY, Mont. – Fighting for control of the health care debate, President Barack Obama is using political tactics and rhetorical devices honed in his White House campaign to regain the upper hand over increasingly vocal critics. In person and over the Internet, Obama is trying to counter intense public skepticism that's flared nationwide in recent weeks over Democrats' plans to overhaul the nation's health care system. It's his top domestic priority and arguably his most challenging political fight yet as president, in no small part because of the vast number of diverse stake-holders involved. Familiar tools from the Obama...

    Remember the good old days? Back during the Dem primaries? When Barack Obama was such an electrifying speaker that women were regularly fainting at his rallies? Ah, how times have changed. Instead of knocking them out with his other-worldly aura, Obama's now . . . putting them to sleep. Check out the woman in the lower-right hand corner of the screencap, seen on CNN today during a live broadcast of Obama on the stump in Virginia. No, I didn't catch her in mid-blink. She actually dozed off just as Obama was ventilating on the horrors of the Bush economy. View...

    BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- A man who wore press credentials and took photographs from a platform interrupted Barack Obama's town-hall meeting Tuesday by shouting complaints that the Democratic presidential candidate had not called for the audience to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Obama invited the heckler to lead the audience in the pledge, and he did.
