Clinton Collapses at 9/11 Memorial — Biden on Standby

Hillary Clinton was rushed out of the memorial service with a health crisis.

Questions raised by The Patriot Post last month regarding the failing health of Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have been largely dismissed by the mainstream media. On Sunday, Clinton was hurriedly escorted out of New York’s 9/11 memorial service long before the ceremony was scheduled to conclude, and she collapsed before reaching her van. She was taken to Chelsea Clinton’s apartment for a medical check.

After avoiding her press pool, Clinton later emerged from the apartment and was asked, “What happened?” She dodged the question, responding, “It’s a beautiful day in New York.” According to The New York Times, Clinton was “feeling overheated.” But the only thing heating up is the frequency of investigations into her abject malfeasance. The Washington Post insisted this incident “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.” But only on the pages of The Washington Post and Clinton’s other sycophantic media have concerns about her health been classified “conservative conspiracy theory.”

Clinton’s physician claims she was diagnosed last week with pneumonia, and that her uncontrollable coughing is associated with allergies. Clinton’s campaign team is trying to tie off any other questions about her health with that explanation, but as we noted in August, serious questions have persisted concerning her health after she fell and suffered a concussion in 2012, which resulted in hemorrhage on her brain. Clinton’s senior staff members have reported, “She is often confused.” Of course, all the coughing could be that she has been choking on her own lies, as her chronic allergy is to the truth. As National Review’s Kevin Williamson notes, “Given her history of rampant, craven, deep, broad, sustained, overarching, continuous, relentless dishonesty about practically every aspect of her personal and public lives, is it really so implausible that she’d lie about her health? No. She’d lie about her health even if there were nothing to lie about, just to keep in practice.”

Fact is, Clinton will now be under more pressure to release her medical records. Recall that in 1996, after releasing his medical records, Bill Clinton said, “The public has a right to know the condition of the president’s health.” The same is true of presidential contenders, both Clinton and Donald Trump.

The strategic question now: Will her pervasive health issues provide Clinton an out, given her declining poll numbers? This could provide the Democrat National Committee an “October surprise” ticket. No doubt the DNC already has a Clinton forfeit folder with signatures attached, and are prepared to appoint Joe Biden in her place. As I have warned, Biden has always been on standby, and a Biden-Warren ticket will prove far more formidable than the Clinton-Kaine ticket.

(Footnote: It is no small irony that Clinton would collapse at this ceremony given that we outlined in detail many years ago the fact Bill Clinton refused to green light U.S. Special Forces operators on at least two occasions when they had Osama bin Laden in their gun sights — two years before the 9/11 attacks.)
