I finally have been able to find a credible source that understands head injuries and can talk in layman’s terms about why Hillary Clinton may be having some weird health problems. It all stems from her 2012 fall, when she suffered a concussion and apparently had a stroke (at least that’s what this doctor believes). You don’t have to take my word for it either. You can go to The Hill, and read all about it. And yes, for the liberals out there, The Hill is FAR from being a right-wing rag…after all, it employs AB Stoddard among others, and is left of center!
The doctor in question is Dr. John Coppedge, MD, FACS, who is a general surgeon from Texas. He said that Hillary’s problem is telling because of the fact that her eyes aren’t in sync. That, he believes, stems from damage to her sixth cranial nerve which was caused by the transverse sinus thrombosis that she suffered after her fall. OK, so what’s so telling about all of this, and why should we care?
Well, the fact of the matter is, that folks that suffer from transverse sinus thrombosis apparently have a blood clot at the base of their brain that limits blood flow. What this means is that they typically have balance issues, sight problems (double vision in a lot of cases), and increased pressure that causes extremely painful headaches. It also can cause intermittent loss of consciousness which could explain her stumble at the 9/11 ceremony in New York when she fell getting into the van. The medical term for all of this intermittent lateral rectus palsy.
So, we can now understand (without trying to be flip or sarcastic) why medically, Hillary is off the campaign trail so much. Yes, she’s on Coumadin, but that does nothing for the actually blood clot that is in the brain. That only prevents further clots from forming because it’s a blood thinner.
The question now becomes, that IF this doctor is right (and he admits that he hasn’t examined Clinton, but thinks that some independent neurologist probably should), does that mean she cannot perform her duties as president? We’ve seen some very incapacitated presidents in the past, some, like Ronald Reagan who was known to have the early stages of Alzheimer’s in his second term, were wildly successful. That question, I will leave to you, the voter. But now at least, you’ve received what I think would be termed a medical explanation from a qualified physician and surgeon. The rest is up to Hillary to once again, come clean and let America know what the real problem is…but apparently it’s a lot deeper than a mild case of pneumonia!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
