Controversial video footage taken in recent weeks of Hillary Clinton, is raising serious questions that at best shows very bizarre behavior, and at worst signals she may be suffering from serious Health concerns, and maybe even suffered a public Seizure on camera. According to some witnesses of the event, Hillary’s security team quickly removed her from the scene following the incident, and cleared the area. Snopes.com debunked suggestions the puzzling behavior was a seizure by simply offering there is no ‘credible evidence that she actually suffered a seizure’. Well Snopes, that is tantamount to FBI Director Comey proving “Intent”. It also doesn’t mean that a crime, or in this instance a possible seizure, couldn’t have or didn’t happen. Watch the video, and I will offer some information that lends merit to the possibility that something larger is actually going on.
Hillary’s health has been cause for speculative concern starting back in December of 2012, when she was hospitalized for four days suffering from a concussion, after “fainting and striking her head in the subsequent fall”. Wikipedia defines a concussion as “2] is the most common type of traumatic brain injury.” The cause of the fainting was reportedly due to dehydration from a Virus she contracted while traveling as Secretary of State. During a follow up for the concussion, an MRI was performed, and it was revealed that Hillary Clinton was being treated for a blood clot in her brain caused by the concussion, requiring more extensive treatment. A Transverse Cerebral Thrombosis is the medical terminology for the blood clot she specifically had, and is what she was treated for. Following President Bill Clinton’s later revelation that she required six months recovery, it suggests the severity of her Traumatic Brain Injury, and the Transverse Cerebral Thrombosis, were intentionally understated for political purposes. The use of the words “Concussion”, and “Blood Clot” instead of the actual medical terminology, is an overt and conscious political action to discount the seriousness of the Medical terminology by using layman terms that are much less alarming to the average American, and voter. The Thrombosis was actually a serious life-threatening condition, and Hillary could have suffered a stroke or cardiac arrest had it not been discovered and treated promptly. I have to think that the MRI was ordered due to problems or symptoms Hillary was experiencing that led to the imaging.
At the time of Hillary’s hospitalization and release, GOP strategist, and Fox News Political pundit Karl Rove, was likely the first to raise concerns while commenting on footage of her hospital release by noting the thick glasses she wore, that something was amiss.
“Thirty days in the hospital,” Rove said. “And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses (Fresnel Prism) that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”
(To be fair and correct on the record, Rove admittedly misspoke about her time in the hospital, it was only 4 days- her recovery from the time of the illness and injury was 30 days he said)
According to husband President Bill Clinton in an interview with ABC News, it took Hillary 6 months to, as he said ‘get over’ the Concussion offering a timeline for her illness and injury.
A month later In January 2013, Hillary Clinton appeared before the House Select Committee investigating the Benghazi attacks. Hillary was forced to reschedule due to her health concerns, the original date of December 20th, 2012 for testimony. Hillary was wearing the special Prism glasses that Rove had referred to earlier for her blurring, and double vision symptoms she was still experiencing with her recovery from the TBI. Her staff explained that they were part of her “ongoing Concussion Treatment”.
Now clearly I am not a Neurologist, or an M.D. But, what I see in the video as a layman with some intellect, is troubling. What I have learned from the research of this article is cause for concern to me, and should be to all American’s for several reasons.
Is it possible Hillary’s aversion to holding Press Conferences or her reluctance for anything except essential public and campaign appearances; is a disciplined effort of maintaining a low profile concealing a medical issue that is causing Seizures?
Could this just be an effort at Hillary humor? Possibly, but it would be the first attempt at humor by her I can ever recall, and mimicking a spastic, or epileptic seizure for the sake of comedy, wouldn’t be Politically Correct; just ask Donald Trump. If it were meant as humor, it was way over the top, and out of character with the cautious, and careful campaign team she employs. Also, Democrats in particular are paranoid, and sensitive to any blunders, or gaffes that are Howard Deanesque in the suicidal fashion of that campaign ending scream.
To those that dismiss the video as not indicative of a seizure, because Hillary maintained consciousness, and never collapsed; I offer some basic online research I performed for my own curiosity. First off, there are many types, and causes of Seizures. Grand-Mal epileptic seizures are the type that we often associate and visualize as seizures. They involve loss of consciousness and bodily control, lasting several minutes with victims falling to the ground and writhing uncontrollably. Milder seizures occur in mere seconds and are not as dramatic. From the WebMD website I found these types. If I were to associate what I see in the video with the types listed; I would think the closest description would be to Clonic Seizures, or Petit-Mal. (Petit was the Epilepsy patient commentator opinion of seizure type Hillary likely experienced, that he saw in the video).
What association or linkage to her Concussion, or Blood Clot could there be connecting the speculation of seizures in the video? We know that Traumatic Brain Injury/Concussion is serious. I think we can also extrapolate that even more so, when a Transverse Cerebral Thrombosis becomes a complication afterward. I found this while researching possible complications for this article. Concussion complications from the Centers for Disease Control government website.
Post Traumatic Seizures
Seizure occurs days to months after concussion
Does require seizure management and precautions
Usually requires anticonvulsant therapy
(emphasis is mine)
I also found this from the Mayo Clinic on complications of Concussions.
Potential complications of concussion include:
Epilepsy. People who have had a concussion double their risk of developing Epilepsy within the first five years after the injury.
(emphasis is mine)
According to the Epilepsy Foundation Seizure triggering precautions can include- Loud Sound and light stimulation. Sleep deprivation- fatigue/exhaustion. Stress. Specific foods, excess caffeine.
All of the highlighted triggering precautions in my above paragraph were involved in that video with the Stress, fatigue, and Light and sound stimulation of a campaign for President at that press event. Then there a triggering foods, drinks, and caffeine that can trigger seizures. All could have set off the possible seizure event we saw in that video. Seizures could be occurring and plausible if Hillary was suffering from Post-Concussion seizures, or Epileptic seizures caused by their Traumatic Brain Injury/Concussion. One thing comes back to me that Hillary said in the video, just recovered from her shaking and convulsions following her pull on that straw of the Chai Tea she was drinking before this odd ‘event’. As she recovered Hillary said, “You guys have got to try the cold Chai” as she lifted up her Chai tea cup with about one-third of it already having been consumed.
So, learning that caffeine is officially a no-no as an seizure trigger, I decided to try and research Chai Tea specifically for any possible specific triggering experiences and knowledge. (emphasis mine)
I found this web forum and experience shared by Chel in Australia.
// // Weird Seizure Triggers! Do you have any? – Epilepsy Forum//
Something in chai tea (which contains a combination of spices) is a trigger, but we don’t know specifically what.
Chai tea had me climbing the walls, not getting any sleep (probably having nocturnal seizures), having the full range of simple partials and I also had some complex partials. At the time, I thought I was going mad, as I just couldn’t function at work or at home.
Since diagnosed with temporal lobe E, and now much more under control (mostly due to controlling my triggers, along with Tegretol, although I need a higher dose). The rest of my triggers are pretty “standard”.
Another post by an Epilepsy sufferer named Riva related this experience.

I have noticed this morning, I had absence szs. I have been off caffine and
by mistake last nite I had a chai tea which I enjoyed so much. But
unfortunalty it gave me a few absences in the morning.
NO MORE CAFFINATED DRINKS FOR ME!!
Does anybody else have food triggers?
As a Christian, my foremost concern is for Hillary’s well-being and health. I pray that she isn’t suffering from lasting, or secondary effects of her Traumatic Brain Injury. We all know Hillary’s greatest ambition, and mission to accomplish in her life; is the Presidency. I would like to think she wouldn’t deceive Americans, concealing a serious health malady. Unfortunately, she has a record lacking in veracity, and I wouldn’t put that beyond her.
Secondly, I would call upon her in light of the questions raised by this video, as should all Americans, to release all of her complete medical treatment, and prescription records from today, and going back to the time of her illness, and traumatic brain injury in 2012. That is a duty, and obligation she owes to the American people in determining her fitness to perform her responsibilities as the potential President.
