Is Hillary Clinton Sick?

On Hillary's Health Concerns

I’m not a conspiracy theorist. Lets get that out of the way right off the bat. I don’t have a tin foil hat and I don’t believe in every little conspiracy out there. With that being said, I am also not that gullible and I don’t believe everything anybody tells me. Over the course of the last month or so (really ever since receiving the nomination at the Democratic National Convention) Hillary Clinton’s appearances have been rather spotty while Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, had made several appearances (including one in Louisiana for the flood victims). For that reason, I became very concerned.

On a national level I support Hillary Clinton’s campaign for President (though I will personally vote for Jill Stein since I live in a state in which Donald Trump has locked up) because she is the lesser of two evils. Because of that I became very concerned as to why she has made so little appearances. I thought that perhaps she might be having health problems since she has had some in the past. But the DNC and Clinton supporters called me sexist for being legitimately concerned about the health of someone running for the most powerful position in the world. They said nothing was wrong with her. They said she was a healthy as a horse. Fast-forward a few weeks to the 9/11-memorial ceremony. Hillary Clinton had to leave the event early and then collapsed as she was trying to get inside her car. Turns out, I was right and all the Clinton supporters who insisted that the only reason I was concerned for her health is because I’m a sexist misogynist who doesn’t think that women should be put in a position of power finally admitted it to themselves that she was ill. Now they say that she has pneumonia. I get it, people get sick. It happens. But at the risk of being called a sexist again, I’m not sure that I believe them when they say that she only has pneumonia. Think about it, they lied from the beginning insisting that she was completely fine only to be exposed as liars when it was revealed that she was sick. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Lets take a look back at some things that have happened in the past to Hillary Clinton to see if her health is a real issue or if it is just a foolish concern like her supporters say.

There is a photo that surfaced on the Internet not too long ago from the Drudge Report of Hillary Clinton seemingly being helped up some stares. The Drudge Report pushed this story aggressively making its readers really question the health of Presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton. Right wing conservatives hijacked the photo and they all called for Hillary Clinton to step down. Publications like the Independent Journal Review published an article to respond saying that she slipped on the top step. To be perfectly honest, it is completely possible that she really did slip on that top step and the photographer just snapped an unfortunate photo. If this were the only incident that called for concern, then I would say to forget about it because this photo is hardly proof.

However, this is not the only story of Hillary Clinton falling. In 2009 she broke her elbow and forced to have surgery after she fell while she was on her way to a meeting. In 2011 she collapsed while boarding a plane. In 2012 she fainted in her kitchen, which resulted in a concussion as well as a blood clot in her brain. Now in 2016 she collapsed yet again as she attempted to get into her car to leave the 9/11 memorial ceremony. For the most recent fall, they claimed that she passed out because she has pneumonia. The problem with that explanation is that fainting is not a symptom of dehydration. Then they said that she got overheated. That’s possible but the weather in New York that day was only in the seventies, which makes it highly unlikely that she was overheated. In the last several years we know of five times that she has fallen. That doesn’t even include the amount of times she has fallen privately without the media around. But I’ll grant her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe there is nothing wrong with her. I’m mean, maybe it’s just a coincidence that all of these falls happened so close together…but not so fast.

During an interview in 2016, it appears that Hillary Clinton is experiencing a seizure. During the DNC convention also in 2016, it appears that Hillary Clinton experiences another seizure as she leaves the stage. A couple of weeks ago, during a campaign stop in Cleveland, Hillary Clinton is seen having a major coughing fit that lasts several minutes. Six months ago she also has a long coughing fit. In fact, she’s had several coughing fits dating back to 2008.

In the end, I don’t know if Hillary Clinton is sick. All I know is that her doctor insists that she just has pneumonia. I do find it ironic, though, that when Bernie Sanders (the 75 year old Senator of Vermont) was running against her in the primaries, Hillary Clinton supporters called into question Bernie’s health. Bernie went to the doctor and released his health reports revealing that he was in perfect health. Personally, I think that Hillary Clinton she seek a second and possibly third opinion from doctors she doesn’t see regularly and then publicly reveal their findings. In fact, I think all presidential candidates should have to do that. This is the most powerful job in the world. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump should take it more seriously and follow Bernie’s example. If there really is nothing wrong with her, great. We’ll move on and I’ll support her in November. It wouldn’t hurt for Donald Trump to get a brain scan and possibly take an IQ test while they’re at it.

18 Bible Verses That Prove God Would NOT Be 'Pro-Life'

Stop using the Bible as an excuse to take away women's rights.


"Abortion is WRONG because God (the highest authority) says so! Not because I say so, or "religious" people say so or the government says so...because the CREATOR OF ALL HUMAN LIFE SAYS SO."

This argument is bullshit and I'm sick of hearing it, because it just isn't true. All these Christians claim that the Bible and God says that abortion is wrong, and it's clear they've never read the Bible. Have you ever seen them use a biblical verse to validate their claims? Yeah, me neither. And you know why? BECAUSE THE BIBLE IS NOT PRO-LIFE. They pick and choose vague verses to attempt to back up these ridiculous claims, completely ignoring the damning evidence that the Bible, and therefore God, actually supports child murder, infanticide, and abortion.

Unlike pro-lifers, I'll actually provide some evidence:

1. Numbers 31:17 "Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him"

2. Deuteronomy 2:34 "And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain"

3. Deuteronomy 28:53 "And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the Lord thy God hath given thee, in the seige, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee"

4. 1 Samuel 15:3 "Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass"

5. Isaiah 13:16 "Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished"

6. Isaiah 13:18 "Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children"

7. Ezekiel 9:6 "Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house"

8. Hosea 9:14 "Give them, O Lord: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts"

9. Hosea 13:16 "Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up"

10. 2 Kings 2:24 "And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them"

11. Psalm 137:9 "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones"

12. Numbers 5:21 "-here the priest is to put the woman under his curse- "may the Lord cause you to become a curse among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell"

13. Hosea 9:16 "Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb"

14. Psalm 135:8 "He it was who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and of beast;"

15. Psalm 136:10 "-to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt His love endures forever"

16. 2 Kings 6:28-29 "And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow.So we boiled by son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son"

17. Leviticus 26:29 "And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat"

18. Jeremiah 11:22 "Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine:"

Stop using your religion to try and push propoganda that "God says abortion is wrong because it kills innocent children." Clearly your God doesn't care about killing children. There is more than enough proof that the Bible and God are NOT pro-life. Stop acting like you're good Christians upholding the values of God when you clearly haven't picked up the Bible and actually read it. God doesn't agree with your backwards thinking. Maybe try do your research before spewing your religious bullshit to try and take away women's rights.

Pete Buttigieg Is On Everybody's Radar Now, But Can Mayor Pete Really Become President Pete?

Charisma, polyglot and success in reviving a Midwestern city make him a viable candidate for president. But will this hold?


At the time of writing this, at least 18 people are vying for the Democratic Party nomination to challenge Donald Trump during the Presidential election in 2020. This includes some heavyweights, such as Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Kamala Harris and Senator Cory Booker. There are also fringe candidates, like Andrew Yang. Then there are the formerly fringe candidates. One person fits that bill: Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

Pete Buttigieg has erupted as a potential candidate for the Presidency. He recently took 9% of a recent poll in Iowa, the state that begins the general election season. The question is this: why has he gained so much traction? There are several potential reasons.

First, Mayor Pete has, at least compared to Trump, significant governmental experience as the mayor of South Bend. He has been mayor since 2011. He began his time in office at the age of 29 and has since been re-elected with 80% of the vote in 2015. His success in the city has shown: the city experienced significant growth following a population decline between 2000-2010.

The Mayor has also spearheaded some rebirth projects in the city, including converting the old Studebaker plant in town into a tech hub, conversion of the city streets downtown, and millions of dollars of private investment into the city. As a result, Mayor Pete can tout his success here as examples of why he could be president.

Other supporters claim that he is immensely talented and intelligent (though I do not like this reasoning). Mayor Pete was a Rhodes Scholar after attending Harvard. He knows myriad languages, including Norwegian. He is well-acquainted with various philosophies, including that of well-known intellectual Antonio Gramsci, whom his father has written on.

Though this line of thinking is flawed (I mean, Julian Castro attended Stanford, Cory Booker was also a Rhodes Scholar and Elizabeth Warren lectured at Harvard Law School), it is easy to see WHY he resonates: when compared to the President, Pete is levels above him.

Finally, a lot of what he says resonates with people. He speaks about his faith with fervor and honesty, something I appreciate greatly. He talks about the virtues of progressive politics and supporting policies like universal healthcare, labor unionism, combating climate change among other policies. His youth ideals combined are valued by many.

However, Pete still has his critics. Concerns about the gentrification of the city, wiretapping, and targeting of vacant properties that led to accusations of targeting of minorities in the city are what concerns many people. There were also previous issues with the police chief in the town, who recorded conversations, and who he demoted, which raised concerns for racial bias.

Whether or not this affects the primary at all is anyone's guess. However, he has momentum. Maybe Mayor Pete will become President Pete someday.
