Hillary’s book ‘Stronger Together’ tanks: only 2,912 copies sold in first week

As her poll numbers tumble, with Reuters’ latest showing her 242 Electoral College votes are now in a virtual tie with Trump’s 243, there’s more bad news for Hillary. (See “Reuters polls show huge electoral shift to Trump despite Hillary outspending Trump on campaign ads by a whopping 3300%“)

ZeroHedge reports that Hillary’s newest book piece of crap, Stronger Together, which provides a policy blueprint for where she hopes to take the country if she is elected president, sold just 2,912 copies in its first week on sale, according to Nielsen BookScan.

hillarys-new-book-stronger-together

As described by the New York Times — the rag that openly advocates journalists abandon even a pretense at objectivity in reporting on Trump, and calls on Google to suppress searches for Hillary Clinton’s health — the book is named after Hillary’s campaign slogan. According to the book jacket, Stronger Together offers readers “specific and practical solutions, while also articulating a bold and expansive vision of change and renewal” in 250 pages of bullet-point policy ideas, like “launch a national initiative for suicide prevention” and “humanely address the Central American migrant crisis,” with photographs of Hillary and her running-mate co-demon Tim Kaine on the campaign trail, as well as highlights from her speeches.

Blah, blah, blah.

All lies, from a clinically pathological liar and sociopath.

The NYT says that Hillary and Kaine have promoted her book on the campaign trail, but the sales figure, which tallies about 80% of booksellers nationwide and does not include e-books, firmly makes the book what the publishing industry would consider a flop.

The book’s page on Amazon.com — the same Amazon.com that first sold, then banned the book Nobody Died at Sandy Hook (which you can download and read here — for free!) — garnered an average 2-stars rating from 1,051 customer reviews.

amazon-reviews-for-hillary-clintons-new-book-stronger-togetherHere’s a sample of the reviews. Enjoy!😀

I bought this thinking it would be a how-to book. I wanted ‘How to set up your own Foundation for fun and profit.’ Also, would like to have seen a chapter on ‘Ten easy steps to setting up your own secure server in a bathroom.’ I do hear there’s going to be a sequel, tentatively called ‘The Art of the Shakedown.’ Should be interesting.

“[This] Reviewer was assassinated by Hillary Rodham Clinton

Imagine my dismay when key parts of her life were omitted, would have made for far better reading if she had included all of the below starting with flunking the D.C. Bar Exam to:
• Was removed from her House Judiciary Committee staffer job because of incompetence and lying.
• The Whitewater scandal.
• Married a serial liar and cheater, who occasionally had sexual encounters with nonconsenting partners.
• Lied about “sniper fire” in an attempt to simulate exposure to danger in a war zone.
The subject of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” that led to the impeachment and disbarment of her husband
• Took crockery, furniture, artwork and other items from the White House — had to return and/or pay for them.
• Said “what difference, at this point, does it make” about four brave people killed in Libya as a direct result of her failure to protect them on the anniversary of 9/11.
• Totally ignored the structure and rules for the handling of sensitive national security information.
• Amassed a personal fortune with “speaking fees” and payments from private sector political donors and foreign governments into transparent ‘foundations’ in obvious exchange for future political favor.

I was going to read this book…..I really was. But just as I got started, I found myself under sniper fire, passed out, and fell and hit my head. After that I got double vision and had to wear glasses that were so damn thick I couldn’t even see to read. As if that wasn’t enough, I then had an allergic reaction to something and started coughing so hard I spit out what looked like a couple of lizard’s eyeballs, my limbs locked up, and I passed out and fell down again, waking up only to find out I had been diagnosed with pneumonia 2 days earlier. Somehow I managed to power through it all, but it’s a good thing I was able to make a small fortune on this random small trade in the commodities market (cattle futures or some such thing) and then, miracle of all miracles, a few banks offered me a few million to just talk to their employees for a few minutes – and all that really helped out because I swear I was dead broke and couldn’t figure out how I was gonna come up with the 6 bucks to pay for this book, let alone pay the $1,500 for my health insurance this month. I still want to read it, but, honestly, what difference at this point does it make? I hear it sucks anyway.

Pre-ordered an autographed copy but had to return it after this week’s announcement as I was worried it was contaminated with pneumonia bacteria. I didn’t want to end up exposed to the illness like her grandkids in Chelsea’s apartment she was playing with on 9/11 after she collapsed, or the little girl she was hugging in the street afterwards. Thought about ordering the Kindle version but I thought it might open my device up to being hacked by communist countries. I wasn’t too surprised to see Tim Kaine on the front cover giving the traditional National Socialist salute, I felt it fitting. Strongly recommended for those who believe the USA isn’t anything special and should be more like the peaceful utopias of North Korea, Iran, or Cuba.

This book begins well. The first sentence says, ‘America is great because America is good.’ It goes downhill from there. My experience has been that people want to know the inside truth about their role models. I read page after page looking for tips on how to ask for big payments from rich foreign money launderers, military dictators or junk food manufacturers. It was just a bunch of malarkey even more boring than a 6th grade Common Core history book. I wanted to find out how to delete hundreds of thousands of voter registrations and emails, but no such luck. This book talks about how every vote counts. As long as it’s for Hillary Clinton! [seriously: I did skim it and it is sooooooo boring and these are two boring people with very little to say except ‘vote for me!’]

All in all, I appreciated reading the lies saturating every page. I learned that it’s possible to rise to the top and break all social barrier – as long as you were already at the top and had lost all sense of morality you can achieve anything! Thanks, Hillary!

In contrast, Donald Trump’s book, Great Again: How to Fix Our Crippled America, received an average 4½-stars rating  from 1,291 customer reviews on Amazon.

The stuff of nightmares: UFOlogist Dr. Stephen Greer has a double row of lower teeth

While watching another video on YouTube yesterday, I noticed a video claiming that “Stephen Greer is a Reptilian”. Out of curiosity, I clicked it on, and saw this alarming image of him with what appears to be TWO rows of lower teeth:

Not knowing who he is, I found out that Steven Macon Greer, 61, is a retired ER medical doctor and ufologist who claims to have seen an unidentified flying object at close range when he was about eight years old, which inspired his interest in ufology.

In 1990, he founded the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI) to create a diplomatic and research-based initiative to contact extraterrestrial civilizations. In 1993, he founded the non-profit Disclosure Project to disclose to the public the government’s alleged knowledge of UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and advanced energy and propulsion systems.

In 1997, Greer along with other members of CSETI, including Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell, made a presentation at a background briefing for members of Congress. In 1998, Greer gave up his career as an ER doctor at Caldwell Memorial Hospital to devote his full time to the Disclosure Project.

According to a 2002 report in the Oregon Daily Emerald, Greer has gathered 120 hours of testimony from civilians and various government and military officials on the topic of UFOs, including astronaut Gordon Cooper and a brigadier general.

To verify the “Steven Greer is a reptilian” video, I found a video of Greer speaking to a roomful of people, which he uploaded to YouTube on August 21, 2016, in which he claims to have been approached by 5 ETs.

I slowed down the video and took a series of screenshots, the first of which (at the 0:08 mark of the video) definitely shows he has a mouthful of teeth:

stephen-greer-08

More screenshots reveal that he indeed has what appears to be a double row of lower teeth:

stephen-greers-double-row-of-lower-teeth

Eeek!

I was beginning to freak out.

Fortunately, I did some more research and discovered a dental condition called hyperdontia.

From Wikipedia:

Hyperdontia is the condition of having supernumerary teeth, or teeth that appear in addition to the regular number of teeth. They can appear in any area of the dental arch and can affect any dental organ.

There is evidence of hereditary factors along with some evidence of environmental factors leading to this condition. While a single excess tooth is relatively common, multiple hyperdontia is rare in people with no other associated diseases or syndromes. …

Hyperdontia is seen in a number of disorders, including Gardner’s syndrome and cleidocranial dysostosis….

hyperdontiaFrom the website Supernumerary Teeth:

The supernumerary teeth occur a lot more among the permanent teeth compared to the deciduous [or baby] teeth…. The case of the teeth occurrence is same for deciduous teeth for both males and females. But when it comes to the permanent teeth the incidences of the extra teeth is twice as much in males compared to females…. Classification according to location gives only two types, that is, those found among the front teeth (also known as mesiodens) and those found at the back of the mouth.

And so, just because Steven Greer has extra lower teeth doesn’t make him a reptilian. What remains a mystery is why Greer, who must have made a good income from being an ER doctor, never corrected his hyperdontia by having the extra lower teeth extracted and the remaining teeth straightened with orthodontia.

Things I learn (that I don’t really need to know) by spending too much time on the web. LOL

Someone is learning & practicing how to take down the Internet

This is serious and genuinely alarming.

Bruce Schneier is the Chief Technology Officer of Resilient, an IBM Company, a fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center, and a board member of Electronic Frontier Foundation — an organization defending our rights in the digital world.

In a blog post, Schneier sounds the alarm that in the past year, the websites of major companies that provide the Internet’s basic services repeatedly have been attacked, each time more sophisticated than the last, which suggests “someone” is practicing how to take down the Internet by learning from the companies’ defensive moves.

cyberwar

Below is Bruce Schneier’s blog post of Sept. 13, 2016, “Someone is Learning How to Take Down the Internet“:

Over the past year or two, someone has been probing the defenses of the companies that run critical pieces of the Internet. These probes take the form of precisely calibrated attacks designed to determine exactly how well these companies can defend themselves, and what would be required to take them down. We don’t know who is doing this, but it feels like a large nation state. China or Russia would be my first guesses.

First, a little background. If you want to take a network off the Internet, the easiest way to do it is with a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS). Like the name says, this is an attack designed to prevent legitimate users from getting to the site. There are subtleties, but basically it means blasting so much data at the site that it’s overwhelmed. These attacks are not new: hackers do this to sites they don’t like, and criminals have done it as a method of extortion. There is an entire industry, with an arsenal of technologies, devoted to DDoS defense. But largely it’s a matter of bandwidth. If the attacker has a bigger fire hose of data than the defender has, the attacker wins.

Recently, some of the major companies that provide the basic infrastructure that makes the Internet work have seen an increase in DDoS attacks against them. Moreover, they have seen a certain profile of attacks. These attacks are significantly larger than the ones they’re used to seeing. They last longer. They’re more sophisticated. And they look like probing. One week, the attack would start at a particular level of attack and slowly ramp up before stopping. The next week, it would start at that higher point and continue. And so on, along those lines, as if the attacker were looking for the exact point of failure.

The attacks are also configured in such a way as to see what the company’s total defenses are. There are many different ways to launch a DDoS attack. The more attack vectors you employ simultaneously, the more different defenses the defender has to counter with. These companies are seeing more attacks using three or four different vectors. This means that the companies have to use everything they’ve got to defend themselves. They can’t hold anything back. They’re forced to demonstrate their defense capabilities for the attacker.

I am unable to give details, because these companies spoke with me under condition of anonymity. But this all is consistent with what Verisign is reporting. Verisign is the registrar for many popular top-level Internet domains, like .com and .net. If it goes down, there’s a global blackout of all websites and e-mail addresses in the most common top-level domains. Every quarter, Verisign publishes a DDoS trends report. While its publication doesn’t have the level of detail I heard from the companies I spoke with, the trends are the same: “in Q2 2016, attacks continued to become more frequent, persistent, and complex.”

There’s more. One company told me about a variety of probing attacks in addition to the DDoS attacks: testing the ability to manipulate Internet addresses and routes, seeing how long it takes the defenders to respond, and so on. Someone is extensively testing the core defensive capabilities of the companies that provide critical Internet services.

Who would do this? It doesn’t seem like something an activist, criminal, or researcher would do. Profiling core infrastructure is common practice in espionage and intelligence gathering. It’s not normal for companies to do that. Furthermore, the size and scale of these probes — and especially their persistence — points to state actors. It feels like a nation’s military cybercommand trying to calibrate its weaponry in the case of cyberwar. It reminds me of the US’s Cold War program of flying high-altitude planes over the Soviet Union to force their air-defense systems to turn on, to map their capabilities.

What can we do about this? Nothing, really. We don’t know where the attacks come from. The data I see suggests China, an assessment shared by the people I spoke with. On the other hand, it’s possible to disguise the country of origin for these sorts of attacks. The NSA, which has more surveillance in the Internet backbone than everyone else combined, probably has a better idea, but unless the US decides to make an international incident over this, we won’t see any attribution.

But this is happening. And people should know.

A reader of Schneier’s blog-post, Random Guy 17, wrote this interesting comment:

“An attack on a service is best done by an attacker that doesn’t need that service. You don’t pull the plug on the power company that supplies your own home/business.

With that in mind, a closed, not highly Internet enabled country makes the most sense- like China.”

Other commenters warn that it may be the U.S. government, e.g., the NSA, doing the attacks — to find the Internet’s weaknesses (in order to better defend it), or more malevolently, as bargaining chip for more money allocated to cyber-security.

It doesn’t help that in two weeks, on October 1, control of the Internet — specifically, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) — will pass from U.S. administration to a multilateral body, most likely the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU). (Breitbart)

UPDATE (Sept. 20, 2016):

Rhett Jones reports for Gizmodo, Sept. 11, 2016, that two 18-year-old Israelis — Itay Huri and Yarden Bidani —  have been arrested “in connection with an FBI investigation into vDOS, a cyberattack service that has been credited with perpetrating ‘a majority’ of the DDoS attacks over the last few years.

The following evidence pointed to the Huri and Bidani as the perpetrators:

  1.  Their vDOS service refused to attack Israeli sites in their “home country”.
  2. vDOS was hosted on a server that was traced back to Huri.
  3. SMS notifications pointed to both men.
  4. Huri and Bidani had co-authored a technical paper about DDoS attacks that was published in Israeli security magazine Digitals Whispers.

According to security blogger Brian Krebs, the vDOS site has reportedly raked in $618,000 (£465,835) for its services in two years.

According to Israeli news site The Marker, both men were arrested, then released on $10,000 bonds and placed under house arrest. Their passports have been taken away and they are forbidden from accessing the internet or any other telecommunications equipment for 30 days. It’s unclear if the two men will be extradited to the U.S and formally charged.

It is also unclear if Huri and Bidani are the perpetrators of the increasingly sophisticated DDoS attacks addressed in this post.

Alexis Arquette, the transgender you never heard of, died of AIDS at 47 wanting to revert to being a man

We’ve been inundated with paeans to and glamorous images of the former Bruce Jenner, poster-it for transgenderism — a biological impossibility.

Remember this Vanity Fair cover pic of call-me-Caitlyn Jenner, oh-so carefully posed to conceal his huge man-hands behind his back?

Ready for the clothes to come off?

Bet you never heard of another Hollywood transgender named Alexis Arquette who recently died, even though he’s the brother of famous actors Rosanna, Patricia, David, and (less famous) Richmond Arquette.

That’s because Alexis had lived alone and broke in a charity apartment before he died of AIDS at the age of 47, which doesn’t fit the media’s transgender propaganda script.

Alexis Arquette in April 2009

Alexis Arquette in April 2009

So who was Alexis Arquette?

According to Wikipeida, the creature who called himself Alexis Arquette was born Robert Arquette on July 28, 1969 — the 4th of 5 children of actor-director Lewis Arquette and actress-activist Brenda (née Nowak). Lewis converted to Islam from Catholicism; Brenda is Jewish of Russian and Polish descent.

Below is a 2000 pic of 31-year-old Robert Arquette before he became Alexis, standing next to a frighteningly demonic-looking person who is partially visible (source):

robert-alexis-arquette-in-2000

Robert Alexis Arquette was an actor, cabaret performer, and transgender activist who, in his late 30s, documented on camera his “transition” from male to female in Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother, which debuted at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.

As reported by Radar Online, on September 11, 2016 Alexis Arquette died from an AIDS related stroke in a Los Angeles hospital:

In the weeks before her passing, Arquette’s lengthy battle with HIV became worse than ever, with an infection in her liver spreading throughout her body.

According to sources, Arquette was determined be self-sufficient in her final months, living in a West Hollywood apartment complex run by The Actors Fund that provides housing to residents who have been diagnosed with HIV and have an annual income ranging from $17,400 to $29,000.

In his last days, Arquette seemed to regret his “transitioning”.

In his final public appearance last April at RuPaul’s DragCon, an annual drag convention in L.A., Arquette dressed as a man for the event, looking gaunt. According to the Hollywood Reporter, in the days leading up to his death, Arquette was living as a man, and “struggling to make ends meet.”

On the day of his death, his brother Richmond posted this convoluted remark on Facebook:

“Our brother Robert, who became our brother Alexis, who became our sister Alexis, who became our brother Alexis, passed this morning September 11, at 12:32 am….”

Hillary Clinton’s PARTIAL health record released, 5 days after 9/11 collapse

5 days after a citizen’s shocking video showed Hillary Clinton wobbling, fainting and collapsing into a waiting van after she abruptly left a 9/11 memorial ceremony last Sunday, her personal physician Dr. Lisa Bardack finally released a 2-page letter on Hillary’s health.

We were told conflicting and ever-changing reasons for why Hillary left the 9/11 ceremony:

  1. First, that she was “overheated”.
  2. Then, after the citizen’s video surfaced, the story was changed to Hillary having pneumonia and dehydration. Hillary had concealed her pneumonia from her campaign, the media, and even Chelsea, her daughter, who found out only when Hillary was carted by the minivan to Chelsea’s apartment after her collapse.
  3. Yesterday, Bill Clinton said Hillary had a flu.

The last time Hillary’s health record was disclosed was in 2015, in the form of a 2-page letter from Dr. Bardack. Both the 2015 and yesterday’s letters are only partial glimpses of, not Hillary’s full medical records.

Lisa Bardack, 52, has been Hillary Clinton’s personal physician since 2001.  A New York University medical graduate, Bardack is the chair of internal medicine at CareMount Medical, a network of 400 physicians in New York State. Bardack usually works at CareMount Medical’s Mount Kisco campus, close to the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua.

Daily Mail reporter Francesca Chambers describes Dr. Bardack’s latest letter that “instead of ending speculation over her physical well-being, they contained a bombshell revelation that she had kept secret a condition so serious it led to surgery.

Here’s a summary of Chamblers’ account of what Dr. Bardack disclosed:

  • In January of this year, Hillary had a SECRET lengthy bout of sinus infection, for which she was given antibiotics and steroids, followed by a SECRET surgical procedure wherein a myringotomy tube was put into her left ear to drain fluid.
  • In March, Hillary had a SECRET follow-up CT scan of her brain and sinuses to assess for brain damage, which showed no abnormalities but a mild chronic sinus inflammation.
  • In September, Hillary had two SECRET visits to the doctor:
    • On Sept. 2, when she was diagnosed with a “low-grade fever, congestion, and fatigue” — which Hillary kept SECRET. Advised to rest, Hillary stayed away from campaigning for 2 days, after which she went to Ohio for a rally, in which she had a long coughing fit that she blamed on her being allergic to Trump.
    • A week later, on Sept. 9, wherein she was diagnosed with bacterial pneumonia — which Hillary kept SECRET. That same evening, Hillary went to an LGBT for Hillary event in New York, wherein she called Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables”.
  • Hillary’s blood pressure is 100/70; pulse is 70.
  • Her cholesterol: 189 (LDL 103, HDL 56, tryglycerides 159).
  • In September, she had a “normal” mammogram and breast ultrasound”.
  • Her “medical conditions” are hypothyroidism and seasonal allergies.
  • Key details about Hillary’s health are missing, including her height and weight.
  • Clinton is in sound physical and mental health, but is on allergy, thyroid, and anti-coagulant prescription meds, including Coumadin, which Dr. Drew had questioned as being antiquated. For that, Dr. Drew was asked by CNN to retract his comments, and when he refused, his TV show on HLN was cancelled. (CNN is the parent network of HLN.)

Reporter Chambers concludes:

“Through the race Clinton has battled the perception that she’s not been fully honest with the American people.

The disclosure of another secret medical treatment will only fuel questions in Democratic circles about the impact on Clinton’s poll ratings for candor.

She had dismissed claims she had been unwell as conspiracy theories – but never told anyone she had been treated in January for an ear infection which involved the intervention with a drainage tube.

Clinton is largely viewed as untrustworthy by the voting public. She kept a private server in her home for four years as secretary of state that she housed her work-related emails against government guidance.

Her conduct was the subject of an FBI investigation that concluded this summer without criminal charges but had the bureau’s director scolding her as ‘extremely careless’ with classified information.

It took [Hillary] … six months to apologize for the server that her boss, President Barack Obama, didn’t know about.

A former adviser to President Obama, David Axelrod, blasted Clinton’ this week for an ‘unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems.'”

Below are screenshots of Dr. Bardack’s letter of September 14, 2016, followed by her earlier letter in 2015:

dr-bardack-letter1dr-bardack-letter22015 Bardack summary report on Hillary Clinton's health12015 Bardack summary report on Hillary Clintons health22015 Bardack summary report on Hillary Clinton's health3

Dr. Bardack does not say Hillary has Parkinson’s, but reportedly Hillary’s friends, the Secret Service, as well as multiple physicians (who have not treated Hillary) maintain she has advanced Parkinson’s disease — a serious and progressive (which means it doesn’t get better) neurological disease.

Massive Obamacare fraud: Fictitious enrollees all got $60K government subsidies

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently conducted an “undercover enrollment testing” of Obamacare, aka the (Un)Affordable Care Act, by submitting applications for fictitious, i.e., fake people.

The GAO discovered that EVERY ONE of its fictitious enrollees not only was accepted to Obamacare but received government, i.e., taxpayer, subsidies totaling $60,000 a year.

The reason is because, as shown by the GAO’s undercover test of the Obamacare system, anyone can sign up for Obamacare — and have it paid for by taxpayers — without having to prove their identity or citizenship or demonstrate that they qualify for government subsidies based on income.

VoodooCare

From the GAO’s September 2016 report to Congress, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: Results of Undercover Enrollment Testing for the Federal Marketplace and a Selected State Market for the 2016 Coverage Year:

Our undercover testing for the 2016 coverage year found that the eligibility determination and enrollment processes of the federal and state marketplaces we reviewed remain vulnerable to fraud, as we previously reported for the 2014 and 2015 coverage years. For each of our 15 fictitious applications, the marketplaces approved coverage, including for 6 fictitious applicants who had previously obtained subsidized coverage but did not file the required federal income-tax returns. Although IRS provides information to marketplaces on whether health-care applicants have filed required returns, the federal Marketplace and our selected state marketplace allowed applicants to instead attest that they had filed returns, saying the IRS information was not sufficiently current. The marketplaces we reviewed also relaxed documentation standards or extended deadlines for filing required documentation. After initial approval, all but one of our fictitious enrollees maintained subsidized coverage, even though we sent fictitious documents, or no documents, to resolve application inconsistencies.

For each of our 15 fictitious applications, the federal or state-based marketplaces approved coverage at time of application—specifically, 14 applications for qualified health plans, and 1 application for Medicaid. Each of the 14 applications for qualified health plans was also approved for APTC subsidies. These subsidies totaled about $5,000 on a monthly basis, or about $60,000 annually. These 14 qualified-health-plan applications also each obtained CSR [cost-sharing reduction] subsidies, putting the applicants in a position to further benefit if they used medical services.

In the case of 8 of the fictitious applicants, the GAO submitted fake citizenship and/or social security documentation, but every one of these applications was also approved and received subsidies.

According to the GAO, in 2015, about 1.4 million people received $4 billion in Obamacare subsidies even though they had failed to submit required tax information. 

ZeroHedge reports that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services responded to the GAO’s report, insisting they have a “robust verification process” aimed at “protecting taxpayer dollars”:

“The [Obamacare] marketplace takes seriously the responsibility to protect taxpayer funds, while making coverage available to eligible people. We have a robust verification process to make sure people get benefits they are eligible for while protecting taxpayer dollars.

Within HealthCare.gov we have multiple checks to verify that applicants provide correct eligibility information on their applications, and GAO deliberately circumvented those checks by giving false information, which is against the law for actual applicants.

We appreciate the work the GAO and HHS Office of Inspector General to improve marketplace operations and take action when provided with recommendations or other information. That’s why we have repeatedly requested, and remain disappointed, that we still have not received specific details or recommendations from the GAO relating to their fraudulent applications. Specific and actionable information will enable us to analyze and understand what occurred and whether we can make improvements to our processes or procedures. […] We are also working closely with issuers through the Healthcare Fraud Prevention Partnership to identify trends, schemes and specific bad actors.”

Blah, blah, blah, blah . . . .

So my question to the useless GOP who are a majority in both houses of Congress is:

Why haven’t you still not repealed Obamacare? What more evidence do you need that it’s not working and an unconscionable waste of taxpayer dollars? What are you waiting for?

Does Hillary Clinton have a body double?

The Alternative Media is buzzing with chatter about Hillary Clinton having a body double.

The provocation of the chatter was what happened last Sunday at the 9/11 Commemoration Ceremony at the World Trade Center in Manhattan, where Hillary was photographed looking more moribund than the corpse in the comedy movie Weekend at Bernie’s.

hillary-clinton-at-9-11-memorial-201690 minutes into the 9/11 ceremony, Hillary abruptly left. No reporter was allowed to follow her. It wasn’t until 11 a.m. that reporters were told Hillary had left because she was “overheated,” although the temperature at Ground Zero was around 80°, with a low humidity level that made it feel more like the 70°s.

Here’s a photo of her leaving the 9/11 ceremony, accompanied by a woman who appears to be Dr. Lisa Bardack, with her medical handler close behind:

hillary-collapses-at-9-11-memorial-9-11-2016

As fate would have it, Zdenek Gazda was visiting the 9/11 Memorial that morning and took this now-famous shocking video of Hillary wobbling, buckling at the knees, then literally collapsing into a black minivan.

Law enforcement sources told the Daily Beast she was thrown into the van’s back seat like a “side of beef”.

Instead of taking her to the nearest hospital’s ER, Hillary was driven to her daughter Chelsea’s Manhattan apartment. Just over two hours later, at 11:45 a.m., Hillary emerged unassisted from the apartment building, smiling and waving as if nothing untoward had happened. She then was whisked to her home in Chappaqua, NY, 3o miles to the north.

hillary-waves-outside-chelseas-apartment-building-9-11-2016hillary-outside-chelseas-apartment-closeup

It was only hours after the Gazda video surfaced on the net that Hillary’s campaign changed their story with a tweet from Dr. Bardack that evening saying Hillary had pneumonia, which was diagnosed three days ago on Friday, September 9, 2016.

dr-bardacks-statement-on-hillary-clintons-health-9-11-2016

Pneumonia is a serious illness; some people actually die from it. According to the Daily Mail, Dr. Bardack said “Clinton was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule.” But that evening, Hillary delivered the now infamous speech at the LGBT for Hillary Gala in New York in which she called half of Donald Trump’s supporters “a basket of deplorables” who are racists, sexists, homophobes and xenophobes. In other words, we are to believe that after just having been diagnosed with pneumonia, Hillary promptly attended a campaign event that evening. Yeah, right.

Hillary’s miraculous recovery, from collapsing into the van to walking out of Chelsea’s apartment building smiling and waving, led some on the Internet to speculate that the latter Hillary is a body double. The chatter even made the MSM’s Inside Edition the next day:

The internet is lighting up with conspiracy theories that a body double was used to stand in for Hillary Clinton as she emerged from her daughter’ apartment Sunday after collapsing at a 9/11 memorial ceremony.

“Nose looks very different,” one person wrote on Twitter.

“Hillary’s index finger is longer than her ring finger. This isn’t Hillary,” wrote another.

An additional person wrote: “The person outside Chelsea’s apartment has skinny legs and torso! You decide!”

Another conspiracy theorist noted the absence of any obvious Secret Service agents nearby when the Democratic presidential candidate walked out of Chelsea’s Manhattan apartment building.

Some citizen sleuths claimed the woman emerging from Chelsea’s apartment was actually someone named Teresa Barnwell — who is the spitting image of the presidential candidate.

Barnwell added fuel to the fire when she posted a photo of herself outside the same building wearing sunglasses with the caption: “Maybe I was in New York.”

But Barnwell has an ironclad alibi to prove that she was not in New York. She was impersonating Clinton 3,000 miles away in Los Angeles over the weekend.

She appeared live on Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle along with lookalikes of Bill Clinton, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

She told Inside Edition she sent out the message on social media to “just kind of mess with people because of this rumor that had started that some kind of body double had come out of the apartment instead of the real Hillary. I mean, come on.”

Barnwell also took to Twitter to tell conspiracy theorists to relax.

teresa-barnwell-tweetShe told Inside Edition that she is truly not Clinton’s body double.

“I don’t do that kind of work and I don’t even know that it exists,” she said.

Here’s a comparison of Hillary Clinton with professional impersonator Teresa Barnwell:

So, does Hillary Clinton have a body double?

Question No. 1:

Is the Hillary leaving the 9/11 ceremony the same as the Hillary who emerged from Chelsea’s apartment building?

Here’s a close-up comparison of Hillary No. 1 (the one photographed at the 9/11 ceremony) and Hillary No. 2 (the one leaving Chelsea’s apartment):

It appears to me they are the same. So if Hillary No. 2 (the one leaving Chelsea’s apartment) is a body double, then Hillary No. 1 (the one photographed earlier leaving the 9/11 ceremony) would also be a body double. Why would Hillary hire a body double who is in such poor health that she fainted and collapsed into the minivan?

Question No. 2:

Is 9/11 Hillary a body double?

Does the 9/11 Hillary leaving Chelsea’s apartment have a different hand than the “real” Hillary, specifically is 9/11 Hillary’s index finger longer than her ring finger? Here’s a pic of “Chelsea’s apartment” Hillary waving her right hand, which shows her index finger is NOT longer, but shorter, than her ring finger (source):

Now let’s compare 9/11 Hillary’s right hand (l) with the right hand of pre-9/11 Hillary:

Another way to determine if 9/11 Hillary is a body double is to compare 9/11 Hillary with an earlier Hillary.

On Sept. 8, 2016, four days before the 9/11 memorial ceremony, Hillary gave a news conference in an airport in White Plains. Here’s a video of the news conference, showing her walking toward the camera in her usual gait with that familiar entitled smirk on her face.

Below is a screenshot I took at the 2:02 mark of the video.  Note that, once again, her medical handler, the burly black man, is close by.

Now let’s compare 9/11 Hillary with White Plains Hillary, keeping in mind that the dark navy color of the pantsuit she wore at the 9/11 ceremony has a slimming visual effect, compared to the bright blue pantsuit she wore in White Plains.

Lest you think 9/11 Hillary has narrower hips than White Plains Hillary, here’s a pic of her backside at the 9/11 ceremony which shows her ample butt:

From the photographic evidence presented in this post, my conclusion is that 9/11 Hillary is not a body double. That, of course, leaves us with the puzzle of how she could have recovered so quickly in the 2+ hours between fainting and collapsing into the van, then emerging from Chelsea’s apartment, smiling and waving. This is what financial adviser Karl Denninger (of Market Ticker) thinks, which makes a lot of sense:

Ever had a serious infection?  Like pneumonia?  How do you “recover” nearly-completely in less than two hours after suffering what is clearly a public event of catatonia and near-complete collapse?

You don’t.

But what if you have a neurological deficit [like Parkison’s disease] that is serious, progressive but able to be — sometimes — controlled with medication and only produces visible deficit sometimes?

Then you could have such a “collapse” and yet an hour later be visibly “fine.”

But that’s not pneumonia, nor is it severe dehydration and heat intolerance.  Indeed, if you were believed to actually be suffering from heatstroke and severe dehydration to a degree sufficient to cause you to collapse, especially if you had been diagnosed a few days earlier with pneumonia (which I remind you is a compromise of the lungs and thus your ability to exchange oxygen and CO2) it would quite-arguably be attempted manslaughter to fail to take you directly to the nearest ER.  Hillary was not taken to ANY ER; she was taken to Chelsea’s apartment.  The only rational explanation for that is that her detail and staff knew she was neither dehydrated or suffering heat exhaustion and thus was at no risk of imminent respiratory collapse.

This of course means that they lied to the media (and you, the voters) — again. […]

Parkinsons is not temporary, it is a chronic, permanent once contracted and progressively destructive neurological condition that cannot be controlled on a long-term or permanent basis.

The drug used to control Parkinsons, in addition, has serious long-term side effects and loses effectiveness over time.

But the most-serious aspect of a neurological disorder like Parksinsons is that the sufferer has no real control over when and where they will suffer the deficits it brings.  This was on display on 9/11 at the memorial; certainly Hillary would not choose such a moment to suffer the outward evidence of a neurological deficit, as that particular moment in time would be one where such a deficit would effectively end her campaign, and she knows it.
