Vices of Presidential Health and Modern Media

Updated on September 18, 2016

Last week was dominated by our memories of the tragedy on 9/11, and since we had our eyes full (or fooled?) with fainting of Hillary Clinton, I decided to stop ignoring her health issues and look deeper into what could be wrong with her and what consequences may her health have on this Presidential Elections and our lives. To start off, I’d like to say that I believe that HIPAA laws have to be followed, and that every citizen or resident of the United States have a right to have their medical records protected from public disclosure. Thus, the only person who has a right to disclose Hillary Clinton’s medical records by law is, of course, Hillary herself (while she is alive, anyway). That said, I’d like to state that I in no way wish Hillary ill, even though I don’t like her actions and therefore don’t think that she should be our next President.

I have read many speculations of some doctors who never treated Hillary about what could be wrong with her based on their observations of her symptoms, but none of them are, of course, certain. It’s understandable that her actual doctors should not release the details of her true medical condition because they’d be liable for breach of HIPAA laws and be sued for that. Still, since the stakes are so high and it does matter in what medical and mental condition are people who are fighting to lead our country, I think that all Presidential candidates have to disclose the details of their medical evaluation done by a group of the independent doctors (not their primary physician who they may have formed personal relationships with). So far I have not seen this happening, and so all we have to go on are the speculations seen on the Internet. Since the President will have access to the “red button” that could deploy American nuclear arsenal and start a war, I believe it is absolutely necessary that our Presidential candidates’ mental health be thoroughly evaluated and reported on. Although it’s been researched that about 95% of people who succeed in politics are, in fact, clinical sociopaths or even psychopaths, they’re still being elected and followed by us, the common folks. Therefore, disclosing of the mental health information of any potential politician’s, I think, must take a priority over any other health information, relevant or not.

However, all the speculations around Hillary Clinton’s condition revolve over her seizures and fainting symptoms that are being observed during her public appearances, although the latest 9/11 episode have caused so much hype that WABC TV station host have declared her dead on 9/11! Since it’s highly unlikely that a news host could have made such a huge mistake, people are now wondering whether Hillary we saw leaving her daughter’s apartment building was, in fact, Hillary Clinton of her body double? As a result of these speculations, Clinton’s office has finally released Hillary’s medical condition via the letters from her doctor, stating that nothing is seriously wrong with her. In response, Donald Trump has also disclosed his medical evaluation to the Dr. Oz, although Clinton’s campaign told us that he didn’t. All this drama and anecdotal behavior of our Presidential candidates and this unprecedented campaign remind me of both Alice’s Wonderland and the Oz world ruled by the Wizard of Oz... I often think that I’ve had enough of this nonsense and just want to wake up from this silly slumber!

When it comes to Hillary Clinton’s health in particular, I doubt it would matter as much if people didn’t think that her symptoms point to some potentially fatal condition, and so her selection (obviously, what we’re observing now is not an election) could essentially leave us with her choice of Vice President to lead the U.S., and that, of course, could also have some serious consequences, though probably less vital than if Hillary will remain in power for the next four or, God forbid, eight years… After all, do you remember the President Franklin D. Roosevelt and how his unfortunate demise shortly before the end of the World War II have changed the Human history forever after his Vice President Harry S. Truman have decided to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan and have started the Cold War with the USSR after he became the President of the United States by default, without going through full election process?

Therefore, while voting for the next President of the United States, we have to keep in mind and research on what kind of the President would Vice Presidential nominees make, if given that chance. We don’t know much about Tim Kaine, except that he’s supposedly religious centrist who supports imposing strict gun control laws on the U.S. citizens, but that last fact alone could stir some major civil unrest in this country... As for his foreign policy, I can bet that he would be just as dedicated of supporter of aggressive foreign policy as Hillary Clinton is. Otherwise, they both would never be backed up by the U.S. Military Industrial Complex and Wall Street, don’t you think?

We are already paying for our mistake of electing Obama in hopes for “change” and his promises to stop the “endless wars” overseas. As a wise man said, “the more things change – the more they stay the same”… I recommend you reading this article from Counterpunch and think about the choices that we have to make soon. While contemplating on the future of our once great and respectable country, I want you to keep in mind all pros and cons when it comes to the candidates’ both foreign and domestic policies because we all, unfortunately, will have to live with our choices, thought we should keep in mind, that the puppeteers will do everything in their power to make sure they take our choices away from us… Maybe it’s not too late to speak up and act on our beliefs and hopes for this country? The alternative may be much worse…

      It's so obvious she has serious health issues. I'm more interested in the silver metallic round object that falls out of her trouser leg just after her leg buckles and she steps forward!!!.Might be the battery for the remote control!!
