What does pneumonia look like?

I don’t think it looks like that, but I’m not a doctor.

  1. Like I said, look at how they dragged her. Something wasn’t working upstairs. And she left her shoe:

    That would be a good image for her and her wanna be POTUS-ness.

    • The looks like the show Clinton is wearing in the later videos so I wonder if someone collected it.

      This other video seems to be just a weirdo mirror image of the existing angle. The asian guy runs up and blocks the front. The interesting part in the regular video is the uniformed cops who come swarming in from the left when a headset guy talk to them. The other guys who are closing in are just Secret Service following their regular procedures. They arent even looking at her until she stumbles into the hearse.

      On the other hand when Clinton is propped up on the barrier there is a aid supporting her, but it is just one woman. The frizzy haired women behind her actually has her legs crossed, like she wasnt expecting to spring into action.

      The SS whisk her away. The person they are supposed to protect is feeling faint and stumbling. They dont go to some kind of hospital or doctor?

      Who knows that is really going on here. The Clinton’s will never willingly tell the truth on any subject.

    Europeans can mimic Americans, but not vice versa.

      There is nowhere to go.

      *The culture of Europe, despite how anti-prole…yada yada patrician etc. it might be, is on a death watch. Brexit may be too little too late (see the London mayor), while the continent…(See Germany). These suicidally cucked eurotrash will have their heads taken by the Muslim headsman right after they finish their café meal, reading of Sartre, and tut tutting of the right wing. To hell with them.

    • “greedos?” Are those guidos who are greedy?

      Not sure I agree about the mimicry. Apparently I do a good imitation of an SWPL without even trying. I was standing in line once at a bookstore to get an autograph from someone and struck up a conversation. The person I spoke to asked if I was a professional writer. I get your point, though. It is easier for the talented to mimic the less talented, the creative to mimic the non-creative, etc.. However, lower IQ individuals CAN mimic some of the behavior of higher IQ individuals. As Lion has pointed out here, there was a time when poor, low IQ people behaved much more constructively and had better future time orientation than they do today. If the poor of today would even attempt to mimic the behavior of the higher IQ that would lead to an improvement in their lives. Even if they still stayed basically poor in income.

The guy happened to know Gifford’s sister from Bakersfield, so as he stepped up for the signing he mentioned her. Well, turned out Gifford couldn’t stand his sister, or she’d been bugging him for money or something, so Gifford called security and had the guy escorted out of the store.

      • America offers paltry unemployment benefits to its people for an advanced industrialized nation. Of course, if you don’t work on the books, you will not get any. In Spain, you get 70% of your monthly wage for 1/2 year, and then 50% of the amount after that, for a total of 2 years. The maximum amount is about 1,100 Euros/month. A pretty good deal for a country that is not even a 1st tier nation. Now compared that to NYC, where you could only collect ~ $405/week for 26 weeks, and then it runs out and it’s game over. And what’s $1,600/month in NYC? Basically nothing, it doesn’t even pay the rent for most people. Also, in Spain, there isn’t the superficial of status climbing that one finds in the state, especially in NYC. People get a enjoyment with friends without a price tag.

        You’re deemed a loser living on $1,600/month in Manhattan to all your comrades who live the high life, where they feast and fun around with their high salaries. And America is a socially disconnected place with superficial people. I’m sure many regulars here know that already.

        Furthermore, the cost of living in NYC is so astronomical and there are so many undesirables to make your life unpleasant, if you aren’t at least upper middle class, so why do people put up with it?

        You’re delusional Yakov, America is no longer what it was, go slave yourself away at your HVAC to meet your sub-par living standards.

        I rent a place in Montreal, French Canada for $750 Canadian dollars. Find me a place that has no NAMs or undesirables in NYC, for this kind of money.

        You should ask, what’s up with Lion renting an expensive apt in Manhattan, while being unemployed?

        Also, Muslims don’t want to assimilate in France. If they did, they would be the bobos/SWPLs with Moroccan surnames, like the ones who were killed in the Bataclan. Also, the young shooters were collecting $1,000 in welfare money/month in France. Just comparing the generous European welfare system and our stingy American welfare.

Stop this clown show, people on this blog are high IQ and need better entertainment. America pays fine unemployment that keeps the ranks of unemployed low. What’s the incentive to work at 70% and 50% unemployment compensation rate? None. And then Spain politicians campaign on promises to lower unemployment, lol. Should campaign on lowering unemployment benefits instead. Southern Europeans are lazy people, but when they come to America, they work just fine. Analyze this! What happens?

        You don’t understand how easy it is either. They don’t have to do anything! The government runs after them to make sure that they have all the benefits and can ‘put food’ on the table. My Tajik’s kids had arrived here with $700 foodstamps benefits arranged for them back in Russia. They stepped off the plane and went shopping with their ETB card. This is a real comedy. Meanwhile, on her arrival the wife gets legally ‘separated’ from her American husband and moves in with my Tajik. The kids get Medicate, Tajik applies for ‘political asylum’ for the second time and gets Medicate. The wife gets Medicate. The family is openly and legally living together. But it gets better, the Tajik is very active in bringing a bunch of his relatives over here on tourist visas. Of course nobody will ever go back voluntarily. By the time his imigration case winds up through the system, his wife will be a citizen and he will marry her, become legal and go on SSI. Or he’ll apply for the refuge status for the third time. This is a total comedy, mates. This country has lost all senses, logic and rationality.

        what % of israel is ashkenazi? what % is haredi? israel currently spends 5% of its gdp on the military. it was probably more in years past. israel was founded in 1948. etc.

        but still: israel is dis-confirmation of the theory that jews in the US do so well solely because of their IQ.

Combining their numbers with the Ashkenazi ultra-Orthodox still accounts for slightly less than half of the population. Israel’s average IQ is brought down by the large numbers of Middle Eastern Jews, Ethiopian Jews and Arabs who live there.

    • What we know is that Hillary is hypothyroid and is on blood thinners because of three separate blood clot incidents. She’s had double vision, hence the special specs, she sleeps a lot, she is “often confused.” She has a formidable will which enables her to focus when she needs to, so I expect she’ll crank it up and perform well in the debates, but she is rapidly aging and has a bunch of manageable health problems which are converging into a Big Problem.

      Why does she take Armour thyroid pills? This is an alternative to the usual levothyroxine (generic for Synthroid), which should be enough. I don’t know.

      People who are hypothyroid are at increased risk of T2 diabetes. The large gut would be an indication of that. T2 diabetes is so common we are blase about it, but it’s a real metabolic problem. I opt for that, among all the neurological speculations.

      http://www.everydayhealth.com/parkinsons-disease/parkinsons-disease-progression.aspx

      FWIW, Hitler almost surely had Parkinson’s towards the end of his life. Hence the trembling hand you see in “Downfall.” Parkinson’s patients are noted as being personally and mentally inflexible, which is likely one reason why Hitler demanded that his troops never cede ground, even when it was tactically and strategically sound to do so.

  7. People who fail to exercise regularly over the course of their lives start to see their bodies breaking down by their mid-50s. If you don’t exercise and you drink you are almost certainly in a bad way. Hillary is 68 and I’ve never once heard mention of an exercise regime. She’s almost certainly a physical wreck with or without the Parkinson’s.

    • Curle, you’re scaring me a little. I’m 55 and haven’t exercised in many years. I also need to lose a few pounds. I already lost 10 lbs in the past two months, but am a bit afraid to exercise because I don’t know where to start. Most exercise programs are for much younger people. I’m afraid I may end up hurting myself. I keep saying I’ll start exercising when I lose another 10 lbs or 20 lbs, but then it’s hard to lose weight precisely because I’m not exercising. Lesson: start exercising when you’re younger and don’t let yourself put on weight.

      • Find a gym chain (LA Fitness if you don’t mind tattoos, Lifetime if you do, etc), join, and have somebody check you out on the equipment you need to use with emphasis on avoiding back strain/injury. Use free weights if possible – people using that equipment, whether bodybuilders or folks just trying to get/stay buff, are very supportive of those trying to get in shape. Don’t limit yourself to aerobic equipment. FWIW, there are a couple of regulars at my gym who are old enough to be your parents, and a lot of people very close to your age. Don’t let the “Most exercise programs are for much younger people” nonsense stop you, not least because it isn’t true.

      • Walking is the best exercise. Walking for at least 30 minutes up to an hour should be the bulk of your exercise. Walking more than an hour at a time is unnecessary for an exercise regimen. Although longer walks and hikes every once in a while are fine.

        Jogging is counterproductive, and lots of jogging over the long-term will damage your heart, cardiovascular system, as well as wear out your joints. Lion has blogged before in the past about the danger of marathons. Marathons, and jogging in general, place enormous stress on the heart.

        Don’t listen to Yakiv, walking is fine exercise. your body will tell you when to speed up. It is true that most of the exercise regimens on the net are for younger people. Google physical therapy and shoulder exercises or physical therapy and leg exercises. physical therapists know what they’re doing and they tend to work with higher reps and lower weights. Working with light weights is perfectly fine. don’t let anybody shame you into thinking that you have to live lift heavy weights. In fact lifting heavy weights is extremely dangerous and most of the people you see in gyms who lift heavy weights will be going to the orthopedist at some point or other.

        Thanks to everyone for their replies. I’ve just been eating a lot less – no mindless eating, no junk food or binging, and, this may be the biggest factor – no bread. It’s actually been quite easy, I don’t feel deprived. The problem is that I need to lose about 65 lbs more to reach my ideal weight. It will take a full year, I’m sure. But being on LOTB is a good incentive. I can post periodically about how well I’m doing. Although I’m sure there will be a few guys here who will comment that I’m a “land whale” and need to lose more quickly than a pound a week! Yakov seems to think I’m on the verge of needing an emergency room visit!

        gothamette

        September 13, 2016 at 7:18 pm

      • MaryK —

        The first thing I would do is walk. Studies show walking is superior to jogging for weight loss and cardiovascular health. It’s the single best exercise one can do bar none. Someone who hasn’t been active should start slow. Maybe only 5 minutes at a mild pace. If you get short of breath or sore then stop and do less/slower next time. Your ultimate goal should be 30 minutes at target heart rate. But don’t pressure yourself to go faster or longer. Your body will tell you when to do more. The key is to be consistent.

        Forget about doing a lot of different exercises with heavy weights. A handful of exercises that work the major muscle groups is the way to go. And the best exercise to start with is the lowly pushup. It works most the major muscles of the upper body including chest, back, shoulders and triceps. As with walking, start slow. Start with some pushups against a wall. Only do as many as you can do comfortably. As they get easier, add one or two more until you can easily do as many as you want. Then switch to bent knee pushups. As before, only do as many as you can do with reasonable effort. As the pushups get easier, add one or two more until you can easily do a couple of sets of twenty. Then switch to regular pushups. As before, start over with a smaller number and slowly work your way back up. But never strain. There’s no need. Just do what you can do with reasonable effort and you’ll improve.

        Finally, the only way to lose weight is by changing your diet. You don’t need to eat less. Just eat different. Cut out fast food, processed food, processed or white flour, sugar, sodas, juice, etc. Instead, eat the mediterranean diet. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/mediterranean-diet/art-20047801

        If you’re overweight then you have to exercise as well as change your diet. Because if your body is used to eating more calories then your metabolism is calibrated to eat more calories. If you eat less then your metabolism will slow down. You have to exercise to keep your metabolism from slowing down. It will take YEARS before your metabolism recalibrates to your new diet. That’s why so many diets fail.

      • MaryK: anybody who calls you a land whale is an idiot.

        When I used to fight, I would achieve rapid weight loss through the following program:
        1. No calorie counting, but I would go on a diet of no grains, no refined sugar and no dairy.
        2. Full body weight lifting once every 4 to 5 days.
        3. 6 mile walk everyday
        4. 3 2 hour sessions a week of wrestling practice

        Doing this I would usually lose 5 lbs the first week, 4 pounds the second week, and 3 pounds a week after that the next 4 weeks. I would also start wishing I was dead by the 2nd or 3rd day.

      • @MaryK,

        Everything destructure said about weight loss is true – except for one little quibble.

        I can’t stress how important it is to start moderately, because of the risk of injury. I overdid a walking program, and I’m not really overweight, and I gave myself a nasty case of plantar fasciitis. Start slow. Walking is great.

        “. If you eat less then your metabolism will slow down. You have to exercise to keep your metabolism from slowing down. It will take YEARS before your metabolism recalibrates to your new diet. That’s why so many diets fail.”

        I’m not an expert, so go easy on me, but I think this is not really true. The smaller you are, the less “heat” you give off, so a thin person will appear to have a slower metabolism than a large person. It’s just a statistical artifact of being smaller.

        Secondly, almost everyone who loses “weight” loses some muscle, and that slows metabolism. That’s the reason to do resistance exercise – to preserve muscle.

        I wish I still had the URL but once I saw something on the net where a woman did an N=1. She cut back calories moderately and did a thorough but moderate leg program. Dxa scans before and after. At the end she had lost 10 pounds, all from her legs, and had changed her appearance dramatically. But she hadn’t gained muscle – she preserved it. Lost fat, preserved muscle. That’s the way to go.

        September 14, 2016 at 9:20 am

      • gothamette — I was basing that PART on a recent article I’d read about a study of the contestants for The Biggest Loser. The study showed that after 6 years contestants still had a slower metabolism and that the only people who kept the weight off were exercising over an hour per day. I assumed the exercise had boosted their metabolism. But The Scientific American discusses the same study and says it’s a MYTH that exercise increases metabolism. So it looks like I got it half wrong. People have a slower metabolism for years after losing weight. But exercise does NOT increase one’s metabolism. It only burns more calories while one is actually exercising.

        the “pain” comes from the transition from one diet-exercise regime to another not from the inherent painfulness of eating healthfully and exercising vigorously.

      • MaryK, unless you have heart problems there’s absolutely no reason you can’t do all the excercises young people do. You should get a physical before starting an excercise regimen, include lipid testing and other blood work as well so you have a baseline.

        As for what excercises… ANY! There are so many to choose from its literally impossible to give a suggestion. How about starting with crunches and push ups and jump rope? Those are all free and they will allow you to feel comfortable exerting yourself and being sure of yourself and tell you that you won’t have a heart attack from doing excercise.

        Then if you feel inclined get a gym membership and look up a workout program. You’ll want to do all the main muscle groups like legs arms and abs. Bodybuilding.com has tons of free resources.

        Also if highly recommend eating paleo (marksdailyapple.com – mark calls it primal living). This means 70% of your calories will come from fats (steaks, butter, cheese, chicken fried in duck fat etc). Your next question will be, “isn’t fat bad for me?”. No, it’s not but you will have to do your own research at marks website (he has some excellent primers on this very question). It’s just too long to discuss in this post. Paleo + excercise should have you turning 2x the number of heads you do now in under 3-4 months. Happy hunting!

        Exercise, like procreation, are activities innate to us as biological beings. We romanticism them with courting, weddings, Olympic Games, but at the bottom these are basic instincts and physiological needs. Looking at it rationaly, a man should walk, run, jump, climb, lift weights, through projectiles, swim and of course procreate while keeping a cool and rational head about what he is occupying himself with. His existence is temporary and fleeting, his mind and soul is what matters in life and should be his primary concern along with winning the evolutionary battle. This very simple, I don’t know why I’m even writing all this.

      I don’t want to hijack this thread, nor do I want to get into a pointless exchange with someone about macronutrients, but I think what OldTimer is saying is a total crock. Getting 70% of your calories from fat is insanity. And Mark of Mark’s Daily Apple is an internet fraud. Read what destructure said and follow his advice.

      Another tip: “The Grandma Diet” – eat 3 moderate meals a day. No snacks, no sweets, no seconds, except on days that begin with S. LOL.

      Oh, light weights are fine. All the research says that lifting light is as effective as lifting heavy and a damn sight more safe.

      I’m not responding to OldTimer – all responses will be ignored. Life’s too short.

      @destructure,

      I read about TBL – depressing. The Times had a back and forth about it. My takeaway is that losing weight & maintaining are hard slogs, but doable. We eat too damn much in our society. We eat way more than the Japanese, the closest modern society. Candy and junk are everywhere. The Onion did a satire that is really the truth: Americans are now eating one meal a day: 24/7. One long snack session.

      Eat moderately, exercise as much as you can, and accept the body that nature gives you. I am positive that most Americans would lose weight if they did that.

  8. Undeniably bad for Clinton. Trump’s people framed her as unhealthy, and she just sent them a picture. This will rule the news cycle for the rest of the week, and be in the background for the remainder of the election. Plus her people are saying she was diagnosed on Friday, but they never told anyone. Again, more “secretive” Hillary.

    The only positive is that it lowers her expectations for the debates. Well, there’s also the possibility she could drop out and Tim “Not Clinton/Not Trump” Kaine easily wins. But she won’t drop out; she wants it too bad.

  9. Very little is known about Clinton’s medical condition, but this much is clear: she does not have pneumonia.

    OK, I don’t know that, just sounded good.

    If you review the clip, it is clear that she is leaning against one of the protective barriers and being supported by an aide before she moves to enter the van. She is suffering from convulsions of some kind.

    Yakov must appreciate the Soviet quality of all this, reminiscent of Brezhnev’s final years. Things were easier to hide back then.

    In an ironic note, Clinton’s “doctor” is Lisa Bardack. Бардак literally means brothel, but in Russian slang it means “complete fuck up” or “complete disaster.” Indeed.

    Clinton lost the election yesterday. A real historic moment. The shoe photo is classic.

    For her, it is a lose-lose situation. If she reveals the true nature of her condition she will be considered unfit to serve. If she continues to hide it, speculation will mount and she will be considered physically and mentally unfit as well as dishonest.

    This was obviously her calculation. Two bad options, the second preferable to the first.

    In the end, she simply ran out of time. If the election had been held in 2015 she probably could have pulled it off, now she is too sick. Imagine how she will look in a year. On a personal level, outside of all the money and the politics and the bullshit, that is a shame. So it goes.

      Hillary Clinton goes t o a gifted-student primary school in New York to talk about
      the world. After her talk she offers question time.
      =========================================================
      One little boy puts up his hand. Hillary asks him what his name is. “Kenneth,” he says
      And what is your question, Kenneth?” she asks.

      I have three questions,” he says.

      “1st — whatever happened in Benghazi?
      2nd — why would you run for president if you are not capable of handling two e-mail accounts?
      And, 3rd — whatever happened to the missing six-billion-dollars while you were Secretary
      of State?”

      Just then the bell rings for recess. Hillary informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.
      When they resume Hillary says, “Okay, where were we? Oh, that’s right, question time. Who has a
      question?”

      A different boy — little Johnny — puts his hand up.

      Hillary points to him and asks him what his name is. “Johnny,” he says.

      “And what is your question, Johnny?” she asks.

      “I have five questions,” he says.

      “1st — whatever happened in Benghazi?
      2nd — why would you run for president if you are not capable of handling two e-mail accounts?
      3rd — whatever happened to the missing six-billion dollars while you were Secretary of State?
      4th — why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early?”
      And 5th — where’s Kenneth?”

No one wants their potential president infecting children. Pneumonia is very serious at her age, but she’s managed to feed all the rumors and leave the media with no choice but to cover it.

    But there are odd parts, even leaving this aside. How the media seemed to be trying to push a meme blaming “the heat”, even though no one else at the event seemed to feel it. The fact that her people weren’t worried; they seemed to expect it. She even seemed to have brought a nurse with her. And, again, not admitting it.

      Someone, Hillary, Bill, or even Donald, has to explain this point. I really want to know.

      Sorry, but this is an example of sub-par Hillary hating. There’s enough that’s real here to destroy her candidacy, why invent shit? “Her people” are professional security people, they are trained to be stone faced. What did you expect them to do? Show emotions? Have you ever seen security people in action? They are robotic. Scary robotic.

      I happen to think they handled it horribly. Look at the tape. Hillary could not walk. She was rooted in place. Two guys should have taken her arms on either side and moved her forward, discreetly but firmly. Instead they let her stand there and then she managed by force of that formidable will to jerk one leg forward, at which point she lost balance and toppled forward into the van. Could have broken a wrist. Could have hit her head. What were these idiots thinking?

      Perhaps she told them not to touch her, I don’t know, but if she did, they shouldn’t have listened to her. This is one sick lady. She couldn’t walk.

      A sane party would replace her immediately.

      The media didn’t invent the heat meme, that was spread by her confreres in the Twitterverse, and that fell flat pretty quickly.

      What is being swept under the carpet is that the video was taken by a private citizen. Her lapdog press pool obediently stayed away while she was being removed. Now, that’s deplorable.

    Combining this with other “Clinton seizure ” YouTube’s , she is having seizures. My neurology friend states these are simple partial seizures with eyes deviating to her right , indicating a left sided lesion.

      So far, yours is the most plausible distance diagnosis. What do you think of T2 diabetes as an aside? Hypothyroid people often develop this – look at her heavy gut.

      Lisa Bardack is an internist in Mt. Kisco, not a celeb doctor – and not a neurologist. I suspect she is a local yokel who got picked because she’s flattered by the attention, and not a neurologist. If Hillary traveled with a neurologist it would be game over. But why is a candidate traveling with a doctor? Is this normal?

      Oh wait, “Doc Choc” is a neurologist:

      Follow the embedded link in the above.

      Her press corps has been covering all of this up. It can’t be stressed strongly enough that without this video we would still be in the dark, and the video was taken by a private citizen. If I were him, I’d go into a witness protection program. They are going to Seth Rich him.

    • A brilliant man who could have contributes so much. Why he did all that crazy stuff? Would have been better off as plumber.

      I can understand that we, Jews, had no choice but to go into business and finance because of discrimination and antisemitism. But today, when there is no discrimination, I would ban Jews from finance, law, entetinment and politics. We should do trades, engineering, medicine, music. This will stimulate the natural selection and evolution in a healthier direction and will balance us out as a nation.

  24. Do I get any points for being exactly right back in early August when everyone else was panicking about Trump? Will the morons who show up here periodically to spill their garbage now be quiet?

    Me on 8/3:

    Lion, trump is fine. His campaign is fine. Hillary is weak both as a candidate and she is physically ill. She can’t campaign. These polls you’re seeing promoted are garbage.

    The media is in all out attack mode because they know Hillary can’t beat Trump one on one. But I think it’s too late for the mainstream media. We have the alternative media now so it won’t work like in the past.

After all, he was bucking the entire world — Democrats, Republicans, wealthy donors, trucons, MSM, corporations, special interests, astroturf, foreign leaders, etc. That’s a lot of gravity to overcome.

      The slope was there, hed already made a bigger comeback in april and hilary has a much higher tail risk.

      In fact i expect wikileaks and a rogue disgruntled former aide to dish some more dirt on the corpse.

      Also another terrorist attack or race riot is now inevitable before october. Lets hope the terrorist attack isnt a pretend one to kill trump.

  27. i’ve been thinking about replacing clinton, and i think it would be terrible for trump if the dnc plays it right. really all they have to do is give it to sanders, or give it to biden* after a new vote, and not run an open borders/anti-white campaign. i think biden would be stronger against trump.

    biden and sanders don’t hate white people so the only question is: what will their immigration position be? of course with socialist sanders, that could lead to the end of #nevertrump out of fear of higher taxes, and more business regulation, so maybe it’s a wash.

    *if the nomination is seen as being given to biden over sanders then the sanders people, most likely, revolt and turn into #neverdnc

They caught her, but a piece of metal came out of her pantsleg. She must have been wearing leg braces to stand. They pulled her into the van but instead of going to the Hospital like you would expect they went to Chelsea’s place in Manhattan. A double came out hours later, and acted happy and healthy like Hillary hasn’t been seen in years. The Democrats are said to be meeting to find a replacement. That pneumonia cover story reminds me a lot of the “colds” Soviet Premiers got when they died to give the Party time to elect a successor. Hillary Clinton might be DEAD.

    https://pragmaticallydistributed.wordpress.com/2016/09/12/hillary-and-her-health/

    With her health grabbing the spotlight for the moment, now would also be a good time to quietly get rid of Stephen Bannon for having altright connections.

    As I explained in the end of week circulars, although Bannon is probably not an ideological ally of Richard Spencer, Spencer is working overtime making the word “altright” as toxic as possible while Bannon is on record expressing sympathies with it.

    The time is ideal to “Retire” Bannon before his altright associations lead to an unneeded scandal as we get closer to election day.

        The last thing he should do is refer to this. For months he’s been charging that she’s ill, she denied it, she was proven a liar in spectacular fashion. The damage is done. For him to touch this would be ridiculous.

      • Wrong.

        It depends on how quickly Spencer can finish equating the term altright, as Spencer defines it in front of every media outlet he can get an interview with, with his rehash of neonazism. Which is probably not what Bannon thought of when he associated himself with the term. But the more Spencer defines it the more likely Trump will be forced to get rid of him.

        Alt right is here to stay,

        As a laughing stock on the internet, yes. At least until you altrighters can think of something dumber to join.

        September 13, 2016 at 9:37 pm

      • He is not alt-right,

        I agree Bannon is most likely an ordinary Republican with populist leanings.

        The problem is Spencer is defining the term as synonymous with neonazism, or at least Spencer’s version of it.

        If Spencer keeps speaking on behalf of every other altrighter about what the word means, it may be untenable for Trump to keep Bannon.

        Instead of trusting in Spencer’s judgement and hoping the media is distracted by other campaign issues, I recommend they retire him as a precaution.

        He’s not needed now that Conway and Ivanka have pushed Trump into framing himself as a cuddlier, non-threatening Republican.

        At some point Trump will dump the alt right.

        He won’t because he most likely doesn’t know what the altright is. What he has done as a candidate was completely independent of the altright, and his success does not speak to the strength or weakness of the that movement.

        He did say that the pneumonia started a few weeks ago, thus suggesting she’d been lying.

        That’s him laying the groundwork for making it a major issue later on as a way to remind voters she is a candidate with disturbing secrets.

Spencer may have come up with the term “alternative right”, but he actually has had nothing to do with the rise of the alt-right movement and their ideas and memes.

        OK, I’m convinced. TuJ is truly delusional and there’s no point in engaging in debate with him. I will simply point out to the more lucid readers here that the alt right always was an anti-Semitic cesspool. Spencer is one of its founding members. And a nobody like “The Undiscovered Jew” aint’ gonna change that.

        But let’s see him try. First of all, I would suggest that TUJ come out of the closet and tell us his real name, and appear in public, and try to make connections with real people in the real world. Spencer does – I’ll give him that.

        Otherwise, he is nowhere and nothing – the blog-host of a little read internet site – which is, I suspect, exactly where he wants to be, ineffectual and obscure – what he accuses the alt right of being, in fact.

        “Of course, he shouldn’t have said anything else immediately.”

        He was asked for his response, and he gave a gracious reply, something TuJ wouldn’t understand.

        I’m simply telling you that Spencer is irrelevant. What he is calling “altright” was originally “HBD”. The latter was primarily composed of libertarians and former libertarians, and not antisemitic.

        It has been superseded by an inferior movement. HBD attracted intelligent libertarians and former libertarians. The altright is just a weak HBD rebranding of white nationalism.

        I wouldn’t say Spencer is irrelevant. He is the de facto public face and “leader” of the alt-right simply because he’s not anonymous and is very publicity hungry and puts himself out there.

    Now she loses her balance (a known symptom of brain injury) and we’re supposed to believe it’s pneumonia?

  35. Nate Silver claims that the race has stabilized, and I believe he is partially correct. The gap between Hil and Trump was unnaturally large and the result of some bad Trump weeks and a strong D convention.

    Polls over the last week do seem like Trump is no longer gaining, but I believe it is a blip and that he will continue to catch up, albeit slowly, for the next two weeks leading up to the first debate.

    The HuffPo polling aggregator has Hil up by 4.3, but their rolling average tends to be a lagging indicator and it will certainly narrow to around 2.5 by the time of the debate. In fact, the average of their last 6 polls is + ~2.2% percent for Crooked Hillary. If you add in last weeks Ras and Gravis polls the race is Hil +3.

    A lot is riding on the debates, particularly the first one. Trump is exceptionally weak when off the Teleprompter, on the other hand he will likely get a sort of moral victory as long as he doesn’t completely humiliate himself.

    A decent Trump debate plus natural convergence should be enough for Trump to get the race under 2 points. After that we just have to hope that the undecideds break towards Trump like they did for Brexit, that is our only chance.

And one has to rule out any type of mini-stroke and seizure disorder. And she does have a history of fainting in the past… Again if you look at the video it looks like something is going on that she’s not really walking normally.”

    so she may have blacked out from too little blood to her brain.

      i had to be held up to get me to the er, and i had to stay bent over walking from the car.

  41. Good stuff here;

    http://hotair.com/archives/2016/09/13/bill-clinton-tries-help-makes-things-much-worse/

    Let’s parse this statement for a moment because it puts into focus exactly the problem the Clinton campaign finds themselves dealing with:

    Asked if there was a more serious illness underlying his wife’s public collapse, Clinton said this kind of episode happened, “frequently, not frequently, rarely but on more than one occasion” over the years.

    The Clinton campaign, with their half-truths, lack of transparency, history of obfuscation and outright paranoid lies have boxed themselves into a peculiar dilemma in answering this particular question and it is displayed perfectly by the former president’s mangled response.

    If this episode was rare, as Clinton came close to suggesting, then why wasn’t she rushed to the hospital? Why was the response to send her out 90 minutes later to wave to the press and pretend nothing was wrong? If it was a rare occurrence, why was the campaign (and, presumably the candidate) less concerned with investigating why this harrowing event happened and more concerned with sending Sec. Clinton out with no escorts to show that everything was fine?

    And, if it is a rare occurrence, how can they be so sure there is not a more serious underlying medical condition? After all, this is a 68-year-old woman who, according to the campaign, suffers from severe allergies, deep vein thrombosis, a blood clot in her brain and is on antihistamines and blood thinners. If, out of the blue, she collapses as she did, and it is a rare occurrence, then the proper response would e to run a series of tests to see if there was some underlying cause for this episode.

    Which brings us to Clinton’s initial, corrected response to Charlie Rose.

    “Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors, because frequently—well not frequently…”

    This was his initial answer to Rose when asked if there could be a more serious medical condition causing his wife’s episode.

    If this sort of thing happens “frequently” then there is obviously a known, underlying cause for the episodes that he and many people on the campaign are aware of but have not disclosed to the American public.

    You see the box canyon they’re caught in, right?

    If what we saw on Sunday was a rare occurrence, then the Clinton campaign is behaving in a very bizarre way by immediately sending her out for a photo-op and then by writing the whole thing off as “dehydration due to pneumonia.” Any other 68-year-old woman who suffered a rare, collapsing episode like this would be going through extensive tests at a hospital to get to the bottom of the problem.

    If what we saw was something that happens so frequently that Sec. Clinton’s husband nonchalantly writes the whole thing off with no real, genuine concern and her campaign felt so blasé about the event that they were fine bypassing the hospital and sending her out to wave to the media to show that everything was fine, then clearly there is an underlying cause that has made these episodes so common to trigger such a reaction.

    Either way, they’re stuck.

FDR was irresponsible to run again when he was that sick, and the American people had a right to know that he was that sick.

  50. Long-term unemployment has doubled for non-college young men in their 20’s, video games take up 75% of the time that was previously spent working, and the self-report as happier than ever!

  51. Trump with a 5 point lead over Crooked Hillary in OH. I don’t really care about state polls but it is a good sign.

    If Trump holds Romney’s states, plus add OH, IA, NV, FLA and 1 Maine district I believe that gets him to 266. The other states are all tough nuts to crack, however. The best bet is probably PA, but PA polls so far don’t look good for him. VA as an impossibility because of all the government scum from DC. He has no chance whatsoever in cucked out MN. Wiscuckson is possible but very difficult do to it’s massive cuck population.

    I would say Trump’s best bets, in order, are: PA, NH, RI, MI, WI, CO. He only needs one of those to win.

      VA is winnable because black turnout will not match for crazy white grandma what it was for Obama. Recent polls of Old Dominion have Trump behind by 2, and I list this state on my blog as a pure tossup.

      Historically, in presidential races Pennsylvania is 3 to 5 points less Republican than Ohio. If Trump is ahead by 4 to 5 in Ohio, I suspect the next batch of polls of Pennsylvania will show the race tied there as well.

      Missouri

      North Carolina

      Ohio

      Arizona

      Iowa

      Tied

      Florida

      Virginia

  52. OT, I just found out that Hillary’s ‘basket of deplorables’ comment was given at an LGBT fund raiser.

    We’ve become so numb to freakishness that this is considered no big deal.

    • Don’t know if you were around in the 80s or not but this subservience has been around for awhile. While gays were dropping like flies from AIDS the impact on women the closeted ones had been dating/married to was buried like a state secret. The AIDS tests took six long weeks back then and I knew two young ‘hip and open minded’ women who’d dated effeminate men who had a fearful six weeks (at least one did) with head down in a toilet for many days. The idea that we should make the protection of society’s limited number of egg carriers paramount to those of marginal contributor men was never brought up. When society reaches a point that it doesn’t protect its women it is in trouble.

      • I was indeed around in the 1980s and I remember what you’re referring to, but the difference between now and then is astounding. In the 1980s, there was vigorous dissent. Norman Podhoretz regularly thrashed teh ghey in Commentary. In the 1990s, the same, but it was waning. In the 2000s, the cucks began to grovel and by Obergefell, they caved. Now there’s nothing.

      • “When society reaches a point that it doesn’t protect its women it is in trouble.”

        Nature has dictated that men should protect women. That was the standard of every culture in human history. Unfortunately, Western elites have decided that view is horribly sexist, narrow-minded and misguided.

  54. Its not fucking pneumonia. Its stupid anyone would even entertain that:

    1. First it was overheating. Then an allergy problem. Now pneumonia. So they’ve changed the story 3 times in 4 days. If a murder suspect changed his story like this, you would assume he did it or is schizophrenic.

    2. Theres a video on Cernovich’s site showing how she crosses her fingers while talking to hide tremors. Wears anti-seizure glasses. Hasn’t answered real press questions in 250 days. Can’t stand up unaided. And her aides admit in the wikileaks how confused and tired she always is. The doctor diagnoses parkinsons.

    3. Hilary has had prob the guts of 100k of plastic surgery to cover up the aesthetic markers. She would look like a mess without it.

    4. I’m reliably informed Parkinson’s sufferers lose empathy functions due to losses of natural dopamine levels explaining her behaviour with aides who hate her. Obama who hates her. And her PR team who want to destroy her.

    5. If you had pneumonia, what the fuck are you doing hugging children. What’s the probability of a top 1% plutocrat contracting pneumonia? 0.5% maybe? More generally any female over 59? What 5%? In a hot summer – 1%? Its ridiculous.

    The media lost whatever sliver of credibility it had. Its so ridiculous even liberals are wondering what they hell is going on. I suppose now we know how Saddam blew up the twin towers happened or why America has a private health system or why it spends more on one fighter jet development to fight the Afghanistani airforce than its entire 3rd level education budget in one year.

      There were pleeeeeenty of stories floating around DC of her being an evil c*nt to staffers in the 1990s (and even to Arkansas State Police in the 1980s). Parkinson’s is not causing that behavior; it’s her evil nature.

  55. confirmation:

    hillary’s bp was reported 100/70. if true it’s very un-likely she was not either very sick or very dehydrated or both when this reading was taken.

    68 y old people, and especially women, do not have bps of 100/70…unless they’re sick or taking medication. if she were taking bp medication this would make the light headedness even more likely.

    even marathoners don’t have bps of 100/70. it’s the bp of a child.

    which reminds me, obama’s bp was also reported extremely low. his reported bp does exist in 40+ people, but it’s extreme…even in kenyans living “traditonally”. made me think obama’s on some drug…an MAOI perhaps.

    • A BP of 100/70 is entirely within normal limits and can certainly be found in older individuals. My mother routinely has BPs of 95/60, so does my grandfather and so do I.

      However, Hillary’s kinda fat for that BP.

      • Her physical said she weighed 236 lbs, that is kinda fat and probably means she is on anti-cholesterol and blood pressure meds. She out weighs me by 60 lbs and I’m 6 ft.

      • Weight 263? Cite source. The report. I saw discreetly left her height and weight blank. I’ve seen her in person, and she is about 5 feet 6. My guess is that she weighs about a hundred and sixty now. That’s 20 pounds overweight but not obese.

    • of course i’m wrong as usual:

      The report also indicated that, in a physical exam on March 21, 2015, Clinton’s vital signs appeared “healthy” with a blood pressure of 100/65,…

      so she must be taking some medication or is one of the very lucky few who have a genetic immunity to increasing bp with age.

  56. Someone should grab that shoe and see if it fits the new Hillary that came out for the photo op. If the shoe don’t fit its not legit. The Original Hillary was bad enough, do we really want a lookalike? What if she’s a Libertarian? Or maybe even a Scientologist? We need a media that vets some of these Dem Candidates to make sure they are who they say they are. Its bad enough voters aren’t required to show IDs but the candidates ought to at least.

  57. Gotta love how the SJW Cultists when discussing their cult doctrine always telegraph its ‘complexity’ and thus the need for designated authorities to work their way through such matters. How familiar to the priesthood announcing their particular ability to understand how transubstantiation works (not to tire the minds of lesser mortals). Here’s a Vox proclaiming that ‘racism’ is big, subtle and messy. And, of course, the ‘authorities’ are never people of any particular substance. http://www.vox.com/2016/9/13/12889160/basket-deplorables-clinton-americans-racist
