As Clinton Collapses at 9/11 Memorial, Clearly Hillary has Undisclosed Health Issues. Parkinson's Disease?

Once again, Hillary stumbles, has to be supported by Secret Service to keep her from falling. Once again, the campaign says she's just fine.


September 13, 2016

This photo taken August 8th was previously the subject of conspiracy theorists. With Clinton's health now a mainstream story, it has garnered new attention in comparison's to the candidate's collapse on 9/11/16.

Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton stumbled and fell as she left a 9/11 memorial in New York City today, September 11, 2016. Her doctors have announced that she was diagnosed with pneumonia Friday and put on antibiotics. Clinton and Trump had agreed not to actively campaign today, the 15th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the United States.

Update: Clinton unexpectedly left a New York City 911 memorial service early because of an undisclosed medical issue. She stumbled and fell waiting for her motorcade and then left her shoe behind which was picked up by a different secret service officer.

Videos have gone viral, showing Mrs. Clinton stumbling and almost falling as her Secret Service detail leads her to her car. The video is embedded herein below. After an hour of silence, the Clinton campaign issued a vague statement that the candidate "felt overheated". This will not satisfy the American public given Clinton's history of dodging questions about her health.

Questions about Clinton's health have dogged the campaign. She has often been seen to be lead up stairs, for example on August 10th in the famous "Green pantsuit" photo below.

Some of Mrs. Clinton's health problems are well documented and admitted. While Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton fainted in her bathtub in 2012. She said she collapsed from stomach flu. An MRI revealed a blood-clot in her brain, said Mrs. Clinton and her doctors. The campaign admits that she was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis, for which she takes blood thinners. She also has a thyroid condition, which is not uncommon is 68 year old women, for which she takes thyroid tablets.

The mainstream media have ignored Clinton's obvious health issues. Hillary herself has mocked anyone who questions whether she is physically fit to be president. This morning however is a game changer. Even the Washington Post, the most anti-Trump, pro Clinton newspaper in the United States, thinks it is. Their headline this morning: Clintons health issue just became a real issue in the presidential campaign.

"Hillary Clinton falling ill Sunday morning at a memorial service on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks will catapult questions about her health from the ranks of conservative conspiracy theory to perhaps the central debate in the presidential race over the coming days."

CNN however is still in denial that anything is wrong with Clinton. They feature all the quotes this afternoon from Mrs. Clinton and people in the Clinton camp saying that she's just fine.

And after all, why shouldn't we believe Hillary when she says she's just fine? I mean, when has a Clinton ever lied to you?

Some doctors who have never treated or met Clinton, but have seen her medical records and videos, suspect that the former first lady, 68, has Parkinson's disease.

Hillary Collapses and falls as she is lead to her car. The Secret Service agents support her, catch her fall, as if this is nothing new, nothing they haven't seen before.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a long term disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system. The symptoms generally come on slowly over time. Early in the disease, the most obvious are shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement, and difficulty with walking. Thinking and behavioral problems may also occur. Dementia becomes common in the advanced stages of the disease. Depression and anxiety are also common occurring in more than a third of people with PD.

Other symptoms include sensory, sleep, and emotional problems. The main motor symptoms are collectively called "parkinsonism", or a "parkinsonian syndrome"

Binswanger's disease, also known as subcortical leukoencephalopathy, is a form of small vessel vascular dementia caused by damage to the white brain matter.

White matter atrophy can be caused by many circumstances including chronic hypertension as well as old age. This disease is characterized by loss of memory and intellectual function and by changes in mood. These changes encompass what are known as executive functions of the brain. It usually presents between 54 and 66 years of age, and the first symptoms are usually mental deterioration or stroke.
