Hillary’s coughing fits are symptoms of pulmonary emboli

Hillary Clinton has suffered from two highly public fits of coughing.  One occurred  during her Benghazi testimony and the other occurred on Monday. This was Benghazi:


This one took place on Monday

This is significant now. First, let’s backtrack. In 2012 Clinton developed a cerebral blood clot (i.e. tranverse sinus thrombosis) which resulted most likely consequent to a fainting spell. In July Clinton’s doctor claimed that she was “fit to serve” but that she continued to take Coumadin ( a blood thinner to ward off strokes) and Armour Thyroid for hypothyroidism.

Democrats have been frantic to suppress any thought that there might be something more wrong with Clinton than what is being admitted right now, but there’s reason to think there is something not right with Hillary.

In the emails of Clinton’s aides Clinton was described as “often confused.”

In the Jan. 26, 2013, message, Abedin gave the note about Clinton while discussing the secretary’s schedule with another Clinton aide, Monica Hanley.

“Have you been going over calls with her for tomorrow?” Abedin asked Hanley. “So she knows [then-Indian Prime Minister Manmohan] singh is at 8?”

“She was in bed for a nap by the time I heard that she had an 8am call,” Hanley responded. “Will go over with her.”

“Very imp to do that,” Abedin said in response.

“She’s often confused.”

It was also revealed that Clinton sleeps through meetings.

From a former aide we learn that Clinton gets tired easily:

“You know, Bill Clinton, he gets so much energy from the people at his rallies. When he’s working a rope line, you can just see him light up. You know, she’s tired. She gets tired. She does it.

At Gateway Pundit they suggested that Trump was right about Hillary’s low energy:

She’ll do a couple of minutes in Iowa, meaning a short period of time. And then she goes home,” the GOP presidential front-runner said in Davenport, Iowa, a few weeks ago, as his attention turned to those areas. “You don’t see her for five or six days. She goes home, goes to sleep. I’m telling you. She doesn’t have the strength. She doesn’t have the stamina.”

Matt Drudge tweeted

“Hillary health was biggest revelation at hearing. Coughing fit. Slow-speaking, obviously induced by meds. Choose not to believe if you must.”

Her slow speaking might be a side effect of the thyroid medication, but it was also suggested that it might be a means of Clinton exhibiting gravitas and calmness.

But the coughing fits are something else. I kind of put the first one in mind storage but the second episode compelled me to pay closer attention. I’ve seen this before and I’ve seen it in a close friend of mine.

These coughing fits are a symptom of pulmonary emboli being released into the circulation and entering the lungs. It’s usually a dry cough, but it turns into hemoptysis (coughing up blood) it’s a real problem. Cerebral venous thromboses of size have the potential to cause strokes or infarcts of the brain. Venal circulation returns blood to the heart, which directs it to the lungs for re-oxygenation via the pulmonary artery. Arteries bring blood to organs, veins take it away from organs. If a clot of sufficient size blocks the pulmonary artery, it’s lights out, and quickly. Such clots usually result from deep vein thrombosis. It’s not common, but CVST’s (cerebral venous sinus thrombosis) can lead to pulmonary emboli. If small clots form or dislodge from the wall of a vein they travel to the heart and then to the lung where they can get lodged in the alveoli and causes irritation and subsequent coughing.For more see here, here, and here. In Clinton’s case it may be that she is still forming clots at the site of the injury or she may be having bits separate from a not fully resolved clot.

That’s what I believe we’re seeing.


DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    @Richard Wheeler:

    Deferment for college O.K

    whoops, now you’re starting to change the rules. Some (who the privileged) get deferments? How many years can they get a deferment for college? 10, 20, any limit?

    Pay them well

    Why pay them. Just food and water. They’re now slaves, no choice of vocation. Ideal for 350 pounder, pay him well, he eats and sleeps all day, does no work, not physically able.

    Bad feet like DT—-Put him behind a desk where he can show his great negotiating skills.

    So now we have guys in wheel chairs manning desks? Who decides who gets the cushy jobs and who has to dig latrines?

    IMO H.S diploma or equiv. should be required of all American citizens

    Hmmm, so to hell with the Constitution, no freedom of choice? Can’t be a bum if you choose? Do they then assign jobs alphabetically, or do you have to know someone to get the good jobs?
    I believe you are into Commune living at this stage, not far to real communism.

    I guess, knowing you’re a liberal, this doesn’t surprise me.
    Oh, would everyone still have the right to own a gun? And have the right to vote? What would they vote for? Surely not whether to make military service mandatory.

    I agree that serving in the military is an honor and I’m extremely proud that I ‘wanted’ very much to do so. Some didn’t feel that way. You would take away that spirit and make it an obligation?

    Hypo meds don’t make you talk slow (just the opposite if they are working). The disease makes your entire body slow down including your thought process and speech. I am hypo.

    Hillary Clinton spoke at a press conference September 9.

    A listless, tired looking Clinton had been speaking and taking questions for about fourteen minutes when she first ended her press conference but came right back to the microphone to answer a shouted question about her rival Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump speaking to Larry King on King’s show that is on Russian owned RT.

    Clinton spoke for another two minutes then abruptly cut herself off, turned and walked away, curtly saying to the press as she turned her back on them, “Thank you all.”

    As soon as Clinton was behind the pillar immediately stage right a loud double cough could be heard.

    So, she saved herself from another PUBLIC coughing fit on camera.
    But, she’s still coughing.

    And one reporter from Daily Mail got into a Twitter war with Hillary supporting reporters over how tired she looked.

    Think the Free Press will be safe if Hillary were elected?

    @Randy: Brain Damage? What Brian? Oh, yes, severely damaged! Entire right lobe completely eviscerated! Subject can only perceive reality in twisted views of slanted Phobias! Homophobia, xenophobia, immigrant illegal voter phobia, and Hillary Phobia! Conclusion: Brain removal and transplant from backup. Suggest Abby Normal’s brain be used. Might want to marinate it in vodka for a week or so to to normalize it to body tissue, first.

    A new climax in her lying and acting career! “Help me, I’ve fallen, and you can’t prosecute me and hang me for treason! Poor Me!” How carefully calculated!
