Is the Mainstream Media Buying the Clinton Concussion Story, or Merely Reporting It?

Hillary Clinton has served as Secretary of State under Obama after the two were rivals during the 2008 presidential primary season

(Dec. 15, 2012) — As Fox News first reported earlier today, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton allegedly suffered a concussion, which is “the most common type of brain injury,” at some point last week after reportedly being ill from a stomach virus and becoming dehydrated.

The Fox News story has since been removed.  However, a summary of the original story appears at Fox Nation, where commenters appear skeptical of the eport.  Fox News Insider also has a short summary and the official statement made by one of Clinton’s aides at the State Department.  The original Fox News story now appears via a different link.

No official doctor’s statement was released, and the State Department spokesperson, Philippe Reines, does not say where he obtained the information that Clinton became dehydrated nor how she suffered the concussion.  CNBC reported that Clinton acquired the stomach virus while traveling in Europe.

Politico reports that Reines “is so trusted by the Clinton camp that he was made Chelsea Clinton’s handler during HRC’s presidential campaign.”  Reines has also been described as “Clinton’s “Michael Clayton-esque image man and fixer” and “the Peter Pan of Hillaryland” by a Washington Post writer.  Reines has been noted to have made a rude and obscene comment to a CNN journalist regarding the network’s use of the late Ambassador Christopher Stevens’ journal found in the immediate aftermath of the attack on the Benghazi outpost which killed him and three other Americans working in the area on September 11, 2012.

The same Associated Press article about Clinton’s alleged concussion was reproduced by many news outlets without deviating a great deal from the statement released by the State Department.

 The Washington Post reported that Clinton “got” a concussion after fainting, but a concussion occurs from a blow to the head or other injury, not from fainting in and of itself.  A concussion can be very serious with neurological tests normally part of the medical treatment and possible “temporary loss of brain function.”  Other symptoms may appear immediately or within several weeks of the concussion and include dizziness, confusion, blurry vision, headaches, and trouble remembering events.

According to Weill Cornell Medical Center, “A concussion causes at least a temporary loss in brain function. Although losing consciousness is a common sign of a concussion, it’s possible to suffer a concussion without being completely knocked out.”

Why are Clinton’s “doctors” not monitoring her in a hospital by administering the necessary tests to determine if bleeding in the brain occurred?  Is Clinton really expected to “work from home” following such an event?  Where was the media “days ago” when Clinton allegedly had the concussion?

While this morning’s Fox News report stated that Clinton fainted while in her office at the State Department, another report says it happened “at home.”  The Washington Post goes on to say that “Because of her illness,” Clinton will not appear to testify in front of congressional committees on December 20, as was tentatively scheduled to discuss the attack on the U.S. building in Benghazi, Libya on September 11 which took the lives of four Americans.

Is it realistic that Clinton would be “looking forward to being back in the office soon,” or is it more likely that she is looking forward to leaving the State Department so as to avoid questioning about the Benghazi debacle?

Clinton had announced plans to leave the Obama regime sometime between December and January.

Emails leaked to the press from the State Department revealed that personnel at State, the FBI, the White House and CIA were aware within the first few hours that the Benghazi attack was the result of terrorists. but the official story from Clinton and United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice was that a “despicable [anti-Islamic] video was the cause.”  Is it possible that Clinton does not wish to testify as to her knowledge of the events of September 11, 2012?

Is the Obama regime controlling the information which the media reports, as it has in the past?

    More phony stories and decoys for Benghazi, Fast & Furious, etc. The Clinton’s have shown they are masters at coverups, lies, perversions or any other “allegations” that may be “charged” against the great Clinton Democratic Royalty. You could find better people in a Super Max prison that would do a better job and not play with cigars. How far does crime get excused? It looks like the skies the limit, especially in DC. Most of the people we have operating there are attracted by the sick political Godless culture that wraps it’s ugly lifestyles around the taxpayers dollars and doing your job with any responsibility becomes a “learning moment”? All the pomp and circumstance, suit and tie clowns/cowards, political wish wash all adds up to another term of money laundering, pork squander, sex scandals, racketeering, kick backs for favors, lies, promises, corporate apologetics, phony smiles, no accountability for anything, wild hotel Democratic party gala festivities at $35 million so far and counting for the next usurped “term”. Our cities, towns and states are turning into ghettos filled with gangs, drug lords, political racketeers in charge at every level. We have nothing but “EXCUSES” at every level, 0 accountability, concern only for public trustee’s retirement and benefit funds and how to “follow” some corrupted guideline formula for a replacement for real experience/talent/creative leadership which is almost non-existent at any government operation. The reason Bari/Hillary and other scum at the top hate the SEALS is that they have developed and continuously practice those ABILITIES and SKILLS that THEY will never have. We have seen excuse after excuse for management at EVERY level that lacks ANY ability to do their job much less be EFFECTIVE with ANY problem solving skills that deliver RESULTS. Creating more excuses seems to be the only TALENT they have as we constantly see the end results of the moronic attempts to keep fooling the “public” that they are so above. Complete removal of the majority on the payroll is mandatory at this point to save the nation if that is possible. Even small towns in Montana are devastated by crystal meth and other drugs coming in from Mexico while our borders, murders, drug deliveries and corruption are at full throttle with Washington giving their excused blessings to all who enter. Many don’t realize that Hillary is supporting the CAIR and other groups with American give away dollars while they literally run America into the ground while they fill their bank accounts with millions. The violence, hatred, murders, drugs, border crossings, political corruption, crime, racketeering WILL NOT STOP with bad/corrupted management at all levels, more excuses and coverups WILL NOT STOP WHAT IS BEING PERMANENTLY DONE TO DAMAGE AMERICA while they reap record profits like the “stimulus” packages they use for unions and continued money laundering. America IS the TITANIC of modern societies, the band is playing, the crowd is dancing while the ship is listing at 45 degrees and they just keep pretending that it’s all OK. It’s not OK, we want the Constitution reinstated, a complete clean out of all these cowards and parasitic bums in DC. The party is over. The “culture” of today’s politically ignorant are directly responsible for much of the recent violence that results from a hopeless Godless empty environment that self serving money laundering and perverted “leaders” exude from their filth and corrupted glorification of themselves. History always repeats itself and so do the same types of “leaders” who do the repeating. Treason, Perjury, Election Fraud, Murder, Political Genocide.
