The rumors about Hillary Clinton’s overall health have persisted since her disappearance from public eye between Election Day in 2012 leading up to her testimony regarding the Benghazi attack. At that time, numerous explanations were given for her weeks of absence yet some reporters are now asking whether the truth about her health is being withheld.

Report from The Daily Caller:

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front-runner in the next presidential race.

But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns.

These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute nonsense.” In January of this year, the Globe claimed that Clinton secretly had a brain tumor.

Asked about her health on Thursday, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in an email to The Daily Caller: ”To your question, very caring of you to ask. She’s 100%.”

Roger Stone, the GOP consultant, wrote on Twitter recently that Clinton is “not running for health reasons,” telling followers to “remember you heard it first” from him.

Conservatives aren’t the only ones skeptical about whether Clinton has been open about her health. At the time of Clinton’s hospitalization in 2013, Melinda Henneberger of the Washington Post wrote a piece titled, “How sick is Hillary Clinton?”

Not all that shocking that information might by locked inside the Clinton inner circle. Why release any information now especially since there is still a good year before serious 2016 campaigning will begin. Let the Republicans continue to run against Clinton and ignore the rest of the Democratic field up until the last minute.

Then again, this is all speculation and rumor at this point so it may be nothing.

  1. That’s right Billy – that’s why she had a brain fart, to avoid doing Congress on Benghazi. Her only physical ailment is mental, Ambiguity and deflection is near Obama level.

  2. i would assume she was getting botox and some plastic surgery to try to repair the harm done with her drinking

  3. “What Difference Does It Make?”
    The Bubba Clinton edition 1994

    A pact known as the “Budapest Memorandum” signed in 1994 by the United States and Great Britain convinced the Ukraine to give up it’s left over nuclear weapons. In exchange the United States and Great Britain pledges to defend the Ukraine territorial integrity against any aggression. The British government is looking into this but it seems to be ignored by American MSM.

    The world is watching to how we respond and it could have repercussions world wide.

    • Bob: I went to the link. So, are you suggesting we declare war on Russia? This is all so reminiscent of World War I, in which Germany did NOT want war, but was sucked into unlimited hostilities by stupid treaty entanglements after the death of ONE person.

      So far, there has not been blood spilled. So cool heads should prevail.

      Note that the Russian flag is being flown by Russian-speakers in eastern Ukraine. This is not a simple “invasion,” especially since Russia has had an agreement to have a military base INSIDE Crimea.

      Reuters does a pretty objective report:

      http://uk.reuters.com/article/2014/03/02/uk-ukraine-idUKBREA1H0EM20140302

      • Goethe;

        Nobody said anything about an invasion. The experts are still pouring over the memorandum I mentioned so even they aren’t sure of it’s binding circumstances or they are attempting to find a way out of this and saving face.

        Having the Russian flag flown by Russian speaking people doesn’t mean anything. If my neighbor flies the Irish flag it doesn’t mean his property is considered property of Ireland. Of course the Russians are using protecting Russian citizens as a lame premise for coming in. It has been used before in many different circumstances and by many different countries…..including the U.S.

        Reuters is a left wing news agency that has little consequence outside of Europe.No matter what the bureaucrats in Washington decide I can guarantee you one thing America will lose all credibility of keeping it’s word on anything it says or signs in the future and will noticed as such among our enemies.

        • CORRECTION:

          First sentence should have read:

          “No one said anything about declaring war on Russia.”

          • More and more “FACTS” keep coming out that make the situation even more interesting.

            The article below from the New York Times (dated 10/30/2008)entitled “Georgia and Ukraine Split NATO Members” describes just a situation. It tells how both Georgia and the Ukraine were promised eventual membership in NATO and how other members of NATO react to this. As you are aware Georgia fell to Russian occupation in 2008 and the Ukraine last weekend. Thus marking the questionable judgment from the current administration and the previous administration in foreign policy. The Ukraine borders on four American NATO allies.

            In an interesting but inconsequential note the article states “In a possible indication of her views on Georgia and the Ukraine Hillary Clinton and Senator John McCain nominated Presidents Mikheil Saakashvili of Georgia and Victor Yushenenko of the Ukraine for the Noble Peace Prize in January 2005 for their roles in leading freedom movements.

    • Bob: For cryssake.

      You are trying to say, and I quote your quote of your quote:

      “No one said anything about declaring war on Russia.”

      But your link, even before going to the story says, and I quote:

      “Former-British-Ambassador-Moscow-warns-Russia-invaded-Ukraine-difficult-avoid-going-war.”

      • Goethe;

        The question you asked in your 2nd of March @ 2:41 PM post was “So, are YOU suggesting we declare war on Russia?” The “you” in your question means ME NOT SOME FORMER BRITISH AMBASSADOR and I answered No! I respect your opinion but quit being such a nit picker with words.

        Secondly Sam is right there is nothing we can donor should we. We have to realize however that by our previous foreign policy ineptness we have no one to blame but ourselves.

        Finally you seem to be impressed with polls as if they matter. Or is it simply “confirmation bias”?

      • Goethe – Putin is putting back together the USSR and there is nothing we can or should do about it – just shut up and “carry on” – nothing here.

        Reinforce our military and prepare for the war-storm in about 3-1/4 years. If we continue to downsize our military capability then USSR & China will test USSA at our weakest, maybe before Obama figures out to crap or get off the pot.

  4. If the Clinton’s wanted to ensure they stayed out of the lime light and nix any conversation about policy, leaking a story about health concerns would be the best way to go. When she resurfaces with a plan for running for office…maybe even running a half marathon to prove it…The media will appropriately look the other way.

    Plus it puts your opponents in a sticky place, you can’t really attack a sick person who make never run for president.

    On a side note, I do honestly hope she doesn’t have any health issues. Wish her the best personally…just the worst politically…we don’t need any more bad policies.

  5. Seriously — we should all hope Hitlery Clinton wins the Dems 2016 nomination!

    For what other Dem will make such easy prey in debates… thus have ZERO chance of winning the Presidency?!

    1) Whitewater — poor white trash Hiltlery makes a bundle of money on the stock exchange (while hubby, Slick Willy is Governor). When investigated for insider trading (after Slick Willy becomes president), the witness dies under mysterious circumstances (LOL, can you say: “kill order” like the one in Waco, Texas, issued by the Clinton duo)…?!

    2) Impeached Slick Willy finds his wife unattractive — so cheats on her. And she swallows this, just so she can have a political future (instead of divorcing this scumbag). What kind of defunct values are these, Dear Hitlery?!

    3) Hitlery becomes a NY Senator to the US Senate (even though she has never been in NY before that long enough…but NY Dems are some of the most corrupt scumbags in the USA, so it is no problem for her to cheat her way in 2001).

    4) As Senator, Hitlery, throughout her entire tenure MAKES ZERO CONTRIBUTION, thus no political waves (she is just biding her time as a snake in the grass).

    5) Come 2009 she becomes Secretary of State under Obama. Now, this gives her unprecedented power over the USA — much more than any Elected Senator or Congressman has! Unfortunately Obama makes several mistakes in foreign matters — but, Hitlery is smart enough to travel abroad at that time to distance herself…LOL!

    6) No matter how much Hitlery tries to avoid Obama’s mistakes by getting out of the country on time, she gets caught in the Benghazi massacre! Under her watch and Obama’s!

    7) Obama washed his hands of it like Pontious Pilate — and Hitlery was left holding the bag!
    ————————————————————————————-

    So, let us all pray to the ugly “God” Obama — and hope his evil disciple, Hitlery Clinton, wins the Dems nomination….verily!

  6. Regarding the topic at-hand, “health concerns” has often been the excuse for doing (or not doing) something embarrassing.

    Another is resigning “to have more time with family.” John Conyers, the longest-serving current member of Congress, said he wanted to go home to be with family. BUT, now his WIFE is running for his seat. What’s wrong with this picture?

  7. Goethe – Bob; The U.S. will do nothing about the Ukraine-Crimea situation. The 1994 agreement and the 2009 NATO-Ukraine agreement will go to the bottom of a stack and will never be talked about again. Obama is in a hell of a fix. The Democrat party started in 2006-7 and Obama picked the mantra to spin the U.S. down from consequential to inconsequential and raping the military and it’s capability. Obama and Democrats have been focused on big government and social issues exclusively.

    Western Europe and all NATO States have all spun down as well and are basically Nanny States, the U.S. is not far behind. None of the West (U.S. included) has modernized since 2005. All those countries, and we, have focused on becoming “Nanny” States.

    It’s not beyond reason for China, Russia, and some Middle-East countries to make a treaty to take down America, and then worry about each other later. We are a pain-in-the-ass to all of them.

  8. Sam:

    Obviously Mr.Putin disagrees with the Presidents assessment when he stated he “did not to see this as some Cold War chessboard in which we compete with Russia.” It only took a few hours after the President spoke to Mr.Putin on the phone for 90 minutes when Mr.Putin dismisses him by asking approval of the Russian Parliament to send forces in and it gets approved unanimously. Yep as President Obama told the Russian President a few years back “Ill be more flexable after my re-election.”

    Or perhaps the president gave a second thought to the comment he made to Mitt Romney during their debates about defending the country with “horses and bayonets” when he made the recent cuts to defense……..or at least look for his mis-interpreted “re-set button”.

    Unfortunately here is how the world will now see President Obama:

    • Bob – It is amazing the amount of “Taqiyya” that all politicians use, substituting politics for religion. Putin or Obama couldn’t put out a straight and true statement to save their mother’s butt.

      Putin has been working for years to put the USSR together again. Don’t know anything about a cold war, I think the world has become too small and complicated for that. In the meantime Obama has been working feverishly to divide our nation. On purpose, I believe.

      It shouldn’t be too long before Islam is fully imposed in Western Europe leaving Israel and the Vatican pretty isolated. Central Eastern Asia will be heavily Chinese dominated, NE Europe and Asia will be the USSR. The Americas will be a hodgepodge and the U.S. will a toothless tiger. The MSM and democrats will take control and we will be like a mini British Isles politically but an overgrown ex-bully redirected to go sit in the corner.

      Hagel projected America’s future pretty accurately.

  9. Anyone who thinks the Globe reports “news” couldn’t be more gullible. Unlike even the National Enquirer, another scandal rag, the Globe doesn’t even have any reporters. They make-up EVERYTHING out of whole cloth. Of course that doesn’t mean Hillary couldn’t be sick, but at least Nate had the commonsense to say, “this is all speculation and rumor at this point so it may be nothing.”

    @Goethe: “Another is resigning “to have more time with family.” John Conyers, the longest-serving current member of Congress, said he wanted to go home to be with family. BUT, now his WIFE is running for his seat. What’s wrong with this picture?”

    It’s quite plausible, Goethe. When I lived in Detroit John Conyers was my congressman. He was in his 70’s then and would come to our block party with his young son and sit and chat for hours on end. I never met his wife but she is 36 years younger than he is. Also this: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/report-john-conyers-leads-separate-life-from-corrupt-wife
    Monica Conyers was convicted of bribery in 2009, was sentenced to three years, and served a little over two. She apparently saw John as a ladder for her political ambitions but she used to get in screaming fights with her fellow city council members and by most accounts is as unhinged as Oblivious.

    @Samreusser: “It’s not beyond reason for China, Russia, and some Middle-East countries to make a treaty to take down America, and then worry about each other later. We are a pain-in-the-ass to all of them… It shouldn’t be too long before Islam is fully imposed in Western Europe leaving Israel and the Vatican pretty isolated. Central Eastern Asia will be heavily Chinese dominated, NE Europe and Asia will be the USSR. The Americas will be a hodgepodge and the U.S. will a toothless tiger. The MSM and democrats will take control and we will be like a mini British Isles politically but an overgrown ex-bully redirected to go sit in the corner.”

    Sam, I never cease to be amazed by the feverish level of your paranoid conspiracy thinking. Or are you just trying to invent an external threat to justify throwing more money at the Pentagon?
