The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza is Either Ignorant, a Liar or Both: Something Is Seriously Wrong With Hillary Clinton’s Health

by Scott Creighton

In an article titled “Can We Just Stop Talking About Hillary Clinton’s Health Now?“, Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post makes an extremely outrageous claim that I thought needed to be addressed in that it is either born of incredible ignorance or dishonesty.

“The simple fact is that there is zero evidence that anything is seriously wrong with Clinton.” Chris Cillizza

The “simple fact” of the matter is, there is PLENTY of evidence showing something is SERIOUSLY wrong with Hillary Clinton’s health Yes, the coughing fits (which I covered yesterday) are part of the available evidence. They are the outward symptoms of a deeper problem which have been caught on tape for nearly a year now, as best as I can figure it. No, she was not suffering from “allergies to pollen” as her staff and her minions try to tell us and NO CHRIS, she doesn’t just have a “cold”

For all we know, Hillary Clinton has been avoiding doing press conferences for the past 270+ days because she was afraid she couldn’t complete one without coughing up a lung and lo and behold… yesterday she tried a short press conference and had to excuse herself because… she was coughing up a lung.

That’s evidence Mr. Cillizza. It’s outward tangible evidence of a long-standing health issue.

But it’s not the only evidence, nor is it the best.

To that end, we have the statement from Hillary Clinton’s own doctor, Dr. Lisa Bardack, who is treating Hillary Clinton. She herself stated that Sec. Clinton is currently taking blood thinner everyday.

Hillary is on this medication because she has now suffered from three clotting events which are quite serious Mr. Cillizza. I know because I have had three myself and I take the exact same medication she does.

According to Dr. Lisa Bardack, in 1998 and in 2009 Hillary Clinton suffered from deep vein thrombosis (DVTs) which are extremely serious medical conditions. DVTs are blood clots and the threat is that they can break off and travel to the lungs of the person suffering from them, something called a pulmonary embolism.

Pulmonary embolisms occur in more than 600,000 people in the United States each year.[14] It results in between 50,000[14] and 200,000 deaths per year in the United States.[15]

Acute pulmonary embolisms are the most dangerous and I know this because thus far, I myself have suffered from two of them, both of which put me in the hospital for extended periods of time.

Like Sec. Clinton, I have a long history of DVTs and take a rather large dose of Coumadin everyday in order to stay within a safe therapeutic clotting rate.

Hillary’s most recent clotting event, her transverse sinus venous thrombosis discovered in Dec. of 2012, may have been the cause of her stumble and fall that month which resulted in her concussion.

These three clotting events point to a serious medical condition which requires serious medical treatment.

Coumadin is basically the active ingredient in rat poison. It’s been used for decades in the treatment of recurring DVTs and PEs. Yes, there are new treatments out there and I even tried one for 6 months until I drove myself to the hospital suffering massive chest pain and was told that I had developed a major blood clot in my right lung and was admitted once again for a somewhat shorter stay.

I immediately consulted with my doctor and went back on Coumadin (I am by no means pushing this drug as a treatment. I have no interest in the company)

Coumadin is not a pleasant medication. It requires constant monitoring and a carefully regimented diet in order to work. But it does work. Clotting events while on Coumadin are almost unheard of as long as the patient remains in the therapeutic range.

The problems result from the side effects:

  • pain, swelling, hot or cold feeling, skin changes, or discoloration anywhere on your body;
  • sudden and severe leg or foot pain, foot ulcer, purple toes or fingers;
  • sudden headache, dizziness, or weakness;
  • unusual bleeding (nose, mouth, vagina, or rectum), bleeding from wounds or needle injections, any bleeding that will not stop;
  • easy bruising, purple or red pinpoint spots under your skin;
  • blood in your urine, black or bloody stools, coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds;
  • pale skin, feeling light-headed or short of breath, rapid heart rate, trouble concentrating;
  • dark urine, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes);
  • pain in your stomach, back, or sides;
  • urinating less than usual or not at all;
  • numbness or muscle weakness; or
  • any illness with diarrhea, fever, chills, body aches, or flu symptoms.

If you look at this recent photo I think you see a number of symptoms that may be explained by looking over these potential side effects of Coumadin.

She is leaning on the shelf possibly due to general weakness or dizziness and her left hand is clearly discolored or purple, as is described above.

Also look at that last potential side effect of Coumadin up there: “any illness with diarrhea, fever, chills, body aches, or flu symptoms.” Last I checked, prolonged coughing spells to the point of breathlessness is a “flu symptom”

I personally take 12mg of Coumadin a day and from what I understand, that is an unusually high dose. I have no idea how much Hillary is taking.

As problematic as the medication and treatment are, the alternative is much worse. For myself I know I would develop a clot again very quickly were I to stop using the medication so living with the side effects is simply the lesser of two evils (if you will pardon the pun)

From what I understand from her doctor’s statement, Hillary Clinton has not had a single PE to date and that is a good sign. It means she has good healthcare and they were able to catch the DVTs before they turned into PEs.

But even still, with a history of multiple DVTs and clotting events, Hillary Clinton will be on this medication for the rest of her life and that’s because she suffers from a very serious medical condition. The same one I suffer from. That’s not me diagnosing Hillary Clinton, that’s me reading what her doctor said and having personal insight into this condition.

My last little note to Chris Cillizza: you are either woefully ignorant of the medical condition and too lazy to do even the most rudimentary research before publishing your articles or you are deliberately lying about Hillary Clinton’s medical condition.

In spite of the propaganda from Mr. Cillizza, though treatable, Hillary Clinton suffers from a very serious medical condition and there is plenty of evidence to support that claim if you bother to take the time to look into it.

  1. Good job, Scott! As they say, “It takes one to know one.” In this case referring to specific health issues, who knows better than someone else with same condition?!

    Do take care since you’re one of the Good Guys!

  2. Wouldn’t it have been better for her to have come clean about this ages ago? Are these people really so addicted to power?

    • honestly, I think they are running her because the Jeb thing failed so badly and they can’t have The Donald and his populist message winning the day. And her health issues are important. Citizens will rarely vote for someone who’s seriously ill especially when it comes to a position this high up the food chain. The other consideration is for the makers of Coumadin. The last thing they want is for side effects of their medication to be labeled as the reason the first woman president was kept from being sworn in. Not good for the brand if you know what I mean. Lots of things to consider but the fact is, she is seriously ill. it’s treatable but she is ill. no doubt about that. the fact that everyone is breathlessly lying about it is a clue unto itself I guess. What it means is for folks to figure out for themselves. All I can attest to is the seriousness of the condition and treatment and leave the rest to others.

  3. WaPo is the CIA paper.
    I was wondering if the CIA was ready to abandon shillary but this points to them still wanting her.

  4. Concerning the Washington Post being the CIA newspaper, consider this passage for confirmation:

    I have an acquaintance who lives in the Washington, DC, area who is fond of talking about the achievements of one of his sons. This son has an undergraduate degree from one Ivy League university and a Ph.D. from another. Knowing how heavily the CIA recruits in the Ivy League, particularly Yale, and considering the son’s major and background, I casually asked the acquaintance one day if anyone at his college had tried to get him to join the agency. “No,” he responded, “not at college, but when he was working at his summer job writing for The Washington Post.” One of the editors, whom he named and whose name I clearly remember but will not repeat here, had, over lunch, told him that if he wanted his career to flourish at the newspaper he should join the CIA. The son took it as an invitation, which he declined, not over any matter of principle but because his career aspirations were in academia instead of journalism. The acquaintance told me all this in a very matter-of-fact manner as if he didn’t see anything wrong with it. http://dcdave.com/article5/160310.htm

  5. Thanks for sharing your perspective and experience Scott. First and foremost, take good care of yourself.

    Meanwhile, things are heating up with Charles Ortel and his release for the next 40 days of his findings of the Clinton Foundation. He released his executive summary last night. http://charlesortel.com/

    Potentially explosive material has been found by Michael Smith, an investigative reporter from Australia. Specifically Sep 5-6th in regards to back dated documents of the Clinton Aids/HIV Initiative, asset stripping, maybe timed around seeking funds for Hillary’s reelection to Senate in Nov 2006. http://thompsontimeline.com/clinton-foundation-resources/

  6. Who’d have thought you and Killary would be linked by something? Lol.

    All jokes aside, I hope you are hanging in there, Scot…

  7. Why did my picture change?

  8. Another great post, Scott. You are without doubt the nations’ finest journalist.
