Did Hillary Clinton Expose Little Girl Supporter, Barbra Streisand To Her Pneumonia? – Gateway Pundit
.

.
The physician for Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton issued a statement through the campaign on Sunday that Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday while being examined for a persistent cough.

That opens the question of whether Clinton risked exposing the little girl who rushed up to greet her Sunday afternoon as Clinton left her daughter Chelsea’s New York City apartment after having taken refuge there following a health crisis Sunday morning in which Clinton collapsed as she attempted to walk a few steps to a Secret Service vehicle.

Pneumonia is contagious, especially when the patient has a cough as Clinton does. Clinton bent over to greet her young fan face to face and posed with the little girl for a photo likely exposing the girl to her pneumonia germs…

Story Changes Again, Now Hillary’s Doctor Claims She Has Pneumonia – Zero Hedge

Having stated that her coughing fit last week was due to her suffering from seasonal allergies, and that this morning’s fainting episode was due to ‘overheating’, the Clinton campaign now once again changed the constantly changing narrative, releasing a shocking statement by Hillary’s doctor, according to which she was diagnosed pneumonia on Friday, which in turn made her “dehydrated.”

As CBS writes, Hillary’s campaign did not immediately explain why the Democratic nominee did not reveal the pneumonia diagnosis prior to the Sunday incident, raising questions of transparency.

This is what her spox said earlier: “Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.” We read it twice: no mention of pneumonia.

So when the entire Clinton campaign fell like a ton of bricks on anyone hinting the presidential candidate was unwell after her dramatic coughing fits last week, what word best describes this? And then why did it take two days since Friday for this Doctor Bardack to reveal Clinton’s medical condition?

Five more questions:

Hillary made her infamous “basket of deplorables” comments at a Barbra Streisand fundraiser on Friday night – the same night she was supposedly diagnosed with pneumonia: why go to a fundraiser if sick, especially since pneumonia is contagious…

Leftist Reporter: Democrats Considering Meeting To Discuss Replacing Hillary Clinton On Ticket – Breitbart
.

.
Democrats are reportedly considering an emergency meeting to discuss the possibility of replacing Hillary Clinton on the ticket.

Left-wing journalist David Shuster reported the news based on conversations with Democratic operatives.

Shuster’s tweets gave hope to some Bernie Sanders supporters, but it is not clear at this time what activists could do to challenge Clinton’s nomination.

Hillary Clinton is seen as the last candidate standing who can keep the establishment in Washington D.C. from existential ruin, but she’s having trouble standing.

Hillary Clinton’s near fall at a 9/11 tribute ceremony, and her aides’ struggle to get her into her vehicle, will live in infamy…

Hillary’s Collapse Puts Her Health Front And Center – John Hinderaker

Hillary Clinton’s health has been a significant issue in the presidential race for a while, in my opinion. But after she reportedly fainted or collapsed at a September 11 observance in New York and had to be helped or carried into a van, losing a shoe in the process, no one can deny that her ability to perform the demanding job of President is legitimately in doubt.

One wonders, too, what will happen if she is unable to continue as the Democrats’ nominee. Is there a federal statute governing withdrawal of a presidential candidate? Is it up to the party to determine how to select a substitute nominee? I don’t know, but it is time to start researching the issue.

STEVE updates:

Here’s the video that has emerged (along with the Fox News story from Rick Leventhal), as taken by someone whose Twitter ID is Zdenek Gazda:
.

.
Is Gazda’s video authentic? If it is it is devastating. But it seems odd to me. Why would there be no other media cameras at the scene? How was Gazda the only person apparently present? Why are there so few police and security around the van? Maybe there are perfectly good reasons why this seems so odd (Hillary’s detail improvised a quick exit by an unplanned route?), and it would seem difficult to fake such a video so quickly…

Hillary Collapses, Is Dragged Into Van And Rushed Away From 9/11 Memorial Event – Daily Mail
.

.
Hillary Clinton has called off plans to visit the West Coast on Monday and Tuesday following her ‘medical episode’ at the 9/11 memorial ceremony.

Her doctor revealed that the 68-year-old has pneumonia – hours after a video showed her collapsing into the arms of her Secret Service agents after being rushed from the memorial service at the World Trade Center.

Dr Lisa R Bardack said Sunday evening that Clinton had become overheated and dehydrated at the event in lower Manhattan.

Bardack said Clinton is now ‘recovering nicely’ at her home in Chappaqua, New York.

The Democratic nominee was scheduled to attend fundraisers on Monday and Tuesday in California, and tape an episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show…

MSNBC Cover-Up: Hillary Left 9/11 Memorial Quietly To Be Polite – Breitbart

MSNBC host Alex Witt tried to help Hillary Clinton put a brave face on her sudden departure from the 9/11 Memorial in Manhattan on Sunday morning, suggesting that while Clinton may have suffered a health scare, she left quietly to avoid being impolite.

Witt said:

Of corse, the big story today has been the fact that Secretary Clinton left rather unceremoniously, having become overheated. We should say the weather has been horrific, very hot, extremely humid temperatures. She was adorned in a long-sleeved coat, a pantsuit. And so what we will see here now is her getting into the car. She was a little bit unstable there, not feeling too well. And, again, she had indicated to staffers around her as well as notably, probably, Secret Service officials that she was not feeling well, and she needed to leave the event. Of course, she certainly did not want to bring attention to herself if not feeling well, given the solemnity of the event going on there at Ground Zero commemorations there of 9/11. So those, again, pictures that we just got into us, and showing the Secretary leaving. She was a little bit wobbly. That’s I think, an appropriate word to use. You could see right there she had become overheated.

Witt seemed prepared to use the Clinton campaign’s own explanation – that the Democratic presidential nominee had become “overheated” – without asking what else might have caused her to feel faint and to stumble.

Breitbart News reporters on the scene reported that the weather was not unusually hot, and there was a breeze blowing…

Obama Regime: Relying On ‘Common Sense’ Violates Title IX – Daily Caller
.

.
Defining sexual harassment using “common sense and reason” is a violation of Title IX, the Department of Education declared in a letter released Friday.

The letter, released by the department’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR), concerns an investigation into alleged Title IX violations at Frostburg State University in Maryland. Title IX prohibits sex discrimination at all schools receiving federal funds, and recently OCR has begun investigating schools for allegedly violating the law by creating a hostile sexual environment for women.

OCR found the school mishandled sexual misconduct complaints, and the university has agreed to reimburse women for counseling expenses and make other changes to resolve the complaint.

Notably, though, OCR faults Frostburg’s policies for defining sexual harassment based on “common sense” and what a reasonable person would believe…

Obama Purged Military Of Those Who Sought Victory – American Thinker

It was not hyperbole when GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said that under President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the U.S. military had been “reduced to rubble” and left floundering without a coherent strategy or meaningful capability to win wars. It is a fait accompli, engineered by our commander-in-chief to reduce America’s global footprint, an America he has profusely apologized for, and one he blames for all the world’s ills.

Almost as soon as he took office, President Obama began a military purge not dissimilar to those routinely conducted by third-world despots, with the goal of eliminating voices that might oppose his withdrawing America from the world stage. As Investor’s Business Daily editorialized:

We recognize President Obama is the commander-in-chief and that throughout history presidents from Lincoln to Truman have seen fit to remove military commanders they view as inadequate or insubordinate. Turnover in the military ranks is normal, and in these times of sequestration and budget cuts the numbers are expected to tick up as force levels shrink and missions change.

Yet what has happened to our officer corps since President Obama took office is viewed in many quarters as unprecedented, baffling and even harmful to our national security posture. We have commented on some of the higher profile cases, such as Gen. Carter Ham. He was relieved as head of U.S. Africa Command after only a year and a half because he disagreed with orders not to mount a rescue mission in response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi…

Head Of San Francisco School Board: Rename George Washington High School Over Slavery – Breitbart

The head of San Francisco’s school board, who is running for reelection this November, wants to remove the names of slaveholders – including America’s first president, George Washington – from local public schools due to their “problematic” histories.

The change would affect George Washington High School, which is located in San Francisco’s Richmond District.

“Most of our schools are going to be fine with the names that they have but there are a handful of schools where at least the question should be brought up,” said school board president Matt Haney, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

Gender Studies Professor Rips Down 9/11 Memorial Posters – Campus Reform

Members of the Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Saddleback College had their 9/11 memorial posters ripped down and shredded by the chair of the school’s History department.

According to The New Guard, the students were participating in the Young America’s Foundation “9/11: Never Forget” project, which involves planting 2,977 American flags to remember the lives lost 15 years ago on 9/11, when they were accosted by the professor, who proceeded to rip down their posters and direct them to confine their activities to one of the “free speech areas” on campus.

Prior to that altercation, The New Guard reported Wednesday that the school administration had cancelled the planned memorial service, prompting the YAF members to defy the prohibition by waking up before dawn to plant the flags and hang posters.

The students told Campus Reform that the perpetrator was Margot Lovett, a gender studies and humanities professor who has a history of controversial actions on campus. Notably, OC Weekly reported in 2001 that she had promulgated a statement by the Black Radical Congress to her colleagues blaming “U.S. Imperialism” for the 9/11 attacks.

After ripping down the posters, video footage of the incident reveals that the professor came over to tell the students that they were not allowed to put up posters on that part of campus, because it was not a free speech zone.

“I was absolutely amazed that a professor believed that they had the authority to tear down posters put up by students in remembrance of the terrorist attacks,” Audra Leslie, the president of the Saddleback’s YAF chapter, told Campus Reform…

Iran May Have Received Additional $33.6B In Cash, Gold Payments From Obama Regime – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

Between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions.

A total of $11.9 billion was ultimately paid to Iran, but the details surrounding these payments remain shrouded in mystery, according to Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies…

Black, Female Sailor Faces Discipline After Viral Flag Protest Video – Military

A sailor who filmed herself refusing to stand for morning colors is now facing administrative action, Military.com has learned.

Lt. Cmdr. Kate Meadows, a spokeswoman for Naval Education and Training Command, said actions were ongoing regarding the sailor, but declined to specify what they were.

The sailor, who has not been publicly identified, is assigned to Naval Air Technical Training Center in Pensacola, Florida, Meadows confirmed, and is expected to be allowed to continue training.

The command became aware of the filmed protest Aug. 31, Meadows said.

At issue is an eight-and-a-half minute video posted to Facebook in which the sailor sat through morning colors in protest of the now-defunct third stanza of the National Anthem, which she described as racist.

The video has been widely shared and was viewed more than 13,000 times after being re-posted to a military humor page, US Army Military Police WTF Moments.

The sailor referred to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who made headlines in August when he opted to take a knee for the anthem, saying he was not going to “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

“[The stanza] basically says land of the free, home of the brave, except for hirelings and slaves and I just can’t support anything like that,” the sailor said…

Newly Discovered Parasite Named After Barack Obama – Popular Science
.

.
A new species of blood fluke was found infecting the lungs of turtles in Malaysia. This parasitic flatworm has been dubbed Baracktrema obamai, in honor of the President of the United States (who is the fifth cousin twice removed of one of the discovering scientists).

B. obamai is described in the August issue of the Journal of Parasitology as having a long, thread-like body. So far, it’s shown up in two freshwater turtles, the black marsh turtle (Siebenrockiella crassicollis) and southeast Asian box turtle (Cuora amboinensis).

The scientists found clusters of tens to hundreds of fluke eggs in the turtles’ lung alveoli, the tiny sacs where blood receives oxygen and gets rid of carbon dioxide. How these eggs get outside to hatch and infect new hosts isn’t clear, although making the turtles cough is probably involved…

Over 70% Of U.S. Doctors Surveyed Say Hillary’s Health Concerns Are “Serious, Possibly Disqualifying” – Zero Hedge

On a day when Hillary Clinton proclaimed the media biased (against her), labeling the GOP as “sad, misogynistic sexists,” a survey of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) found that nearly 71% of physicians thought concerns about Hillary Clinton’s health are “serious – could be disqualifying for the position of President.”

With her lead over Trump tumbling to six-week lows following a poor performance at last night’s “commander-in-chief” forum, and a press conference focused on what she was not asked (or didn’t answer)…

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has called “sexism” on the GOP. As The Hill reports,

The Democratic nominee, along with top surrogates and allies, has seized on Trump’s recent comment that Clinton does not have a “presidential look,” using the comment to depict him as sexist.

The former secretary of State also laid into Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for his tweet that she looked “angry” during an MSNBC presidential forum.

Clinton didn’t rule out sexism when asked if she was being treated differently in the political race because she is a woman.

“I’m going to let all of you ponder that last question,” the first female presidential nominee replied with a grin at a press conference.

“I think there will be a lot of Ph.D. theses and popular journalism writing on that subject for years to come. I don’t take my advice and I don’t take anything seriously that comes from the RNC.”…

Obama Warns Of ‘Serious Consequences’ After North Korea Tests Another Nuclear Weapon – CNS
.

.
President Obama warned that North Korea would face “serious consequences” after conducting a nuclear test early Friday – the latest in a series of provocative actions this year including a previous nuclear test eight months ago and multiple ballistic missile launches since.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Obama had spoken to South Korean and Japanese leaders by phone, and “reiterated the unbreakable U.S. commitment to the security of our allies in Asia and around the world.”

“The president indicated he would continue to consult our allies and partners in the days ahead to ensure provocative actions from North Korea are met with serious consequences,” he added. Obama has just returned from a trip to Asia, where he was attending a G20 summit in China when North Korea fired three ballistic missiles into the sea between the Korean peninsula and Japan…

$14 Billion In Cargo Stranded At Sea, Crews “Go Crazy” On Hanjin Ghost Ships – Zero Hedge

The fallout from last week’s historic bankruptcy of one of the world’s biggest shipping lines, Hanjin Shipping, continued with little resolution with as much as $14 billion worth of cargo stranded at sea according to the WSJ, sending cargo owners scurrying to try to recover their goods and get them to customers. Since Hanjin’s bankruptcy protection filing, dozens of ships carrying more than half a million cargo containers have been denied access to ports around the world because of uncertainty about who would pay docking fees, container-storage and unloading bills. Some of those ships have been seized by the company’s creditors.

As Bloomberg adds, 85 Hanjin ships that have been effectively marooned offshore as ports in the U.S., Asia and Europe have turned the company’s ships away. The worry is that Hanjin ships won’t be able to pay port fees or their contents might be seized by creditors, which would disrupt port operations. The global shipping disruption comes just as companies are shipping merchandise to fill shelves and warehouses for the end-of-year holiday season.

Earlier this week, South Korean authorities rushed to piece together a capital injection. Hanjin Group will provide 100 billion won ($90 million), including 40 billion won from Chairman Cho Yang Ho, to help contain disruptions in the supply chain. At the same time, South Korea’s ruling Saenuri Party asked the government to offer about 100 billion won in low-interest loans to the shipping line if Hanjin Group provides collateral, in what is effectively a government funded DIP loan.

Some have calculated that the funding package won’t be enough: South Korea’s Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries estimates Hanjin Shipping needs more than 600 billion won to cover unpaid costs like fuel, including about 100 billion won immediately for payments such as to port operators to unload cargo from stranded ships…

Wells Fargo Fined $185 Million Over Unapproved Accounts – Bloomberg
.

.
Wells Fargo & Co. will pay $185 million to resolve claims that bank employees opened deposit and credit-card accounts without customers’ approval to satisfy sales goals and earn financial rewards, U.S. regulators said.

The lender opened more than 2 million accounts that consumers may not have known about, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said in a statement Thursday. Wells Fargo, which fired 5,300 employees over the improper sales practices, agreed to pay a record $100 million fine to the CFPB, $35 million to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and $50 million to the Los Angeles city attorney to settle the matter. The San Francisco-based bank also will compensate customers who incurred fees or charges, the agencies said.

“Wells Fargo employees secretly opened unauthorized accounts to hit sales targets and receive bonuses,” CFPB Director Richard Cordray said in his agency’s statement. “Because of the severity of these violations, Wells Fargo is paying the largest penalty the CFPB has ever imposed.”…

Obama Twice Tells Group In Laos That Americans Are ‘Lazy’ – American Mirror

Does President Obama have the guts to call Americans “lazy” to our faces? Or is he more brave to tear us down a half a world away?

The president twice called Americans “lazy” today as he addressed a group of young leaders in Laos.

“So usually, if you see the environment destroyed, it’s not because that’s necessary for development. It’s usually because we’re being lazy, and we’re not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in a smarter, sustainable way,” Obama said during a town hall meeting.

He also said, “And I believe that the United States is and can be a great force for good in the world. But because we’re such a big country, we haven’t always had to know about other parts of the world.

“If you are in Laos, you need to know about Thailand and China and Cambodia, because you’re a small country and they’re right next door and you need to know who they are,” Obama said.

“If you’re in the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think we’re so big, we don’t have to really know anything about other people,” he said.

“And that’s part of what I’m trying to change.”
