Back in 2014 Conan O’Brien aired a clever little spoof of Hillary Clinton’s 2012 concussion, one that is very relevant today. Her health has only continued to deteriorate, now to the point that she’s not able to deny there is a problem with more evidence manifesting herself with every public appearance.
What was a joke back then is still funny today, although there is a serious side to all of this. It’s not so much what happens to her that is important to the American people, many feel she’s earned every bit of karma that is now paying her an untimely visit and then some.
What is concerning for many Americans is that this wretched individual could actually end up, as corrupt as she clearly is, as the president of the United States. Aside from all of the legitimate reasons from a character, moral perspective, there is a physical reason why this is dangerous. As is explained in an article by John R. Coppedge, MD for The Hill:
Clinton’s “eyes did not always move in the same direction at the same time. It appears that she has a problem with her left sixth cranial nerve. That nerve serves only one function and that is to make the lateral rectus muscle contract. That muscle turns the eye in the direction away from the midline.
It comes out of the base of the brain and runs along the floor of the skull, immediately beneath the brain before coursing upward to the eye. Dysfunction of that muscle causes the striking picture of the eyes not aiming in the same direction and causes the patient to suffer double vision.
Like all things medical, there is a long list of potential causes but in my opinion the most likely one, based on Clinton’s known medical history is an intermittent lateral rectus palsy caused by damage to or pressure on her sixth cranial nerve.
It is known that she suffered a traumatic brain injury in late 2012 when she fell and struck her head. What is also known is that she was diagnosed with a transverse sinus thrombosis — blood clot in the major vein at the base of the brain. Almost all patients with a transverse sinus thrombosis suffer swelling of the brain and increased intracranial pressure. Most have headaches, balance issues and visual disturbances — all of which Clinton was reported to have following that event.
Clinton’s physician reported that she was placed on Coumadin (a blood thinner) to dissolve the blood clot. Actually, that is incorrect, because Coumadin has no effect on an existing clot. It serves only to decrease the chance of further clotting occurring Clinton’s physician has also reported that on follow up exam, the clot had resolved. That is surprising since the majority of such clots do not dissolve. The way it was documented that the clot had resolved has not been reported.
If, as is statistically likely, Clinton’s transverse sinus is still blocked, she would still have increased pressure and swelling and decreased blood flow to her brain. That swelling would place pressure on the exposed portion of the sixth cranial nerve at the base of her brain, explaining the apparent lateral rectus palsy. And such a deficit can be partial and/or intermittent.
Additionally, when patients who have decreased intracranial blood flow becoming volume depleted (dehydrated) or have a drop in blood pressure loss of consciousness can occur. That could explain her witnessed collapse in New York City on 9/11.
The doctor indicates the it is more likely than not that the original clot is still in existence in its original position and still creating difficulties for Mrs. Clinton. Clearly that is something that should be evaluated, as he recommends. Her contentions that it’s fine, there’s no need for her to be examined mean nothing and if anything only serve to illustrate her dishonesty and lack of respect for the American people. We have a right to know – she has an obligation to provide the information.
