Hillary Clinton faints, has concussion
Hillary Clinton faints, has concussion

Washington (CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sustained a concussion after becoming dehydrated and fainting, and will no longer testify Thursday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Clinton had been suffering from a stomach virus at the time, according to a statement on Saturday from Philippe Reines, deputy assistant secretary of state.

She is being monitored by doctors and is recovering at home. She was never hospitalized, Reines said.

"At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon," Reines said.

1. A Hillary run in 2016 doesn't sound promising.
I think the Fascists want another Bush.

2. I have no desire to see Hillary run for President, ever.
She is a co-founder of the Democratic Leadership Council and traveled Europe with Al From, spreading the DLC gospel.

IMO, the DLC destroyed the Democratic Party, probably forever.

3. Her ties to 'The Family' are also troubling
That Goat Fuck in Honduras didn't go down without the approval of State.

This business of 'Making the World safe for the Oligarchs and fuck the Little People' doesn't agree with me in the least.

4. I assumed that her connection with The Family was purely political, but I have
no basis for that assumption.

Moreover, even her connection was only political, that is one creepy group.

I really don't want anyone doing its bidding.

They believe that they are chosen by God to lead and that God's rules--and human rules--for everyone else do not apply to them.

I have been close to a group that believed that God had given them some kind of dispensation to do whatever it took to protect, preserve and assist their group. Few things are creepier.
