Operation Dissimulation



The cover of this morning’s New York Post

…First, her team says nothing as it sneaks her from the 9/11 ceremony — after she nearly collapses. It later claims she was “overheated” and parades her outside her daughter’s place, where she claims she feels “much better.”

And has the candidate — a possibly infectious pneumonia case — hug a child to make the lie seem cute.

It adds up to hours of effort to deceive — even enlisting federal officers in the effort. That’s the bottom line of The Post’s scoop, thanks to sources who revealed that she was headed to the ER, as Secret Service protocols demand — until her staff insisted otherwise, for fear hospital staff might leak word of her illness.

It seems Team Hillary saw the risk of disclosure as worse than the risk to her health.

Team Hillary’s biggest health problem is compulsive lying (New York Post)


Anderson Cooper: “So, let me ask you about that because [Democrat strategist] David Axelrod was very critical of the way that you and your campaign handled sharing your diagnosis with the public. He tweeted: “Antibiotics can take care of pneumonia. What’s the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?” Why not just say on Friday as you said apparently to Senator [Chuck] Schumer on Sunday, you know, “I have pneumonia, folks, I’m going to power through it”? Why keep it a secret?”

Hillary Clinton:
“Well, I just didn’t think it was going to be that big a deal. You know, I know Chuck said today he didn’t tell anybody. It’s just the kind of thing that if it happens to you and you’re a busy, active person, you keep moving forward. And, you know, I think it’s fair to say, Anderson, that people know more about me than almost anyone in public life. They’ve got 40 years of my tax returns, tens of thousands of emails, a detailed medical letter report, all kinds of personal details. And, you know, it’s just so — it’s so strange that with all of that information out there, and as soon it became clear I couldn’t power through, we, you know, we said what was going on.”

    So anti-Clinton outlets cry conspiracy while pro-Clinton outlets defend her at all costs. Meanwhile Trump gets away with everything he does. It’s a funny old word. I suppose the only good thing is that either of their presidencies should be short lived, hers through illness and his by assassination.

      1. Bob

        Well he’s currently being investigated for raping a 16 year old and will no doubt be openly investigated for treason should he get in. I think both of them should be made president and we can all take bets as to who gets imprisoned/burnt at a stake first. It’ll be a close call.

          Not to mention the “donation” he made to the Florida attorney general’s campaign three days after she said she was considering taking legal action against Trump University. She decided none were necessary then endorsed him. And the fact that he hasn’t released his tax returns.

          It wouldn’t be a close call. Trump is a complete and utter FRAUD! Hilary used private emails in the wrong place, risking US security. She has also been fumbling a bit with her campaign and public persona, but they are not close in the controversy stakes at all. Anyone who thinks they are need to educate themselves immediately, or sit in the dirt throwing sh1t at passers by.

            What’s up chuck? Has your globalist,, establishment war monger, started to go a bit whiffy on you, before the November sell by date.
            I know – its not like you can get your money back and that horrid glass ceiling’s still there.

        This is about Hilary, not Trump. But if the only way you can defend her is by comparing the alternative, then we are all doomed.

          In a binary competition, one candidate is defined by the other.

          If a comatose gerbil were running on the republican ticket, it’d be a fair rebuttal to say “Yeah, but the other choice is a fupping comatose gerbil!”

    I very much doubt if Hillary said she was going to Chelsea’s gaff there was much her advisors could do about it.

    As for Trump, he is always complaining about the media and yet he is the one getting the easy ride? I suppose if he keeps saying the media are against him, some people will actually believe it.

    1. hmmm

      I dont think it’s that he’s getting an easy ride, he’s far better and more comfortable at deflecting bad press. Hillary on the other hand has much of the press on her side but she is terribly uncomfortable in front of a camera, she makes Nixon look like Peter O’Toole and all the bad press and lies are snowballing. I cant see her coming back from this, it’s only going to get worse and wikeleaks have their big reveal next month too

      1. pedeyw

        Wikileaks are a pack of hypocrites. They’re pretending to be this bastion of truth yet they decide what they release and don’t release.

    if you were working 16+ hours a day, being “on” all the time, and you caught pneumonia, you’d bloody well collapse, too – no matter your age. There’s only so far you can push yourself before your body takes a time-out whether you like it or not!

    I don’t get this thing about the pneumonia.

    So she tried to slog through it and it backfired, it was unfortunate timing but the campaign are being criticised for not coming forward sooner. Are they supposed to inform the public every time she has a bowel movement as well?

    1. petey

      they’re supposed to get a “doctor” who will put his name to a statement that the candidate wrote, saying that the candidate is the healthiest person who ever lived.

  5. Junkface

    What a propaganda war this election has turned out to be.

    Trump has lied, cheated and robbed people way, way, way worse than Hilary or anyone else in politics ever did and the tabloids don’t go after him. His life is one BIG, FAT, HUGE, FRAUD! Its getting ridiculous now.

    It’s all about profiles.
    That’s how America works, because it’s a bit too big and diverse for anything else.

    Profiles become cartoons, then cartoons become reality, then reality hits you…
    – Welcome to the 21st Century. I’m going to stick it out for as long as I can. It’s very funny.

      If Donald-‘Duck-Anycritism’ gets elected, and anyone has a ‘Plus-One’ for a ticket off this planet I’ll write you a post-dated cheque.

  7. Bandy

    meh.. America.. who cares? stupid place full of stupid people.. let the war-mad bastards blow themselves up and we can all get on with our lives..

  8. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐqcome reality

    Sorry, I can’t even spell. I probably meant ‘Anti-crtitisim’. It’s my eyesight that lets me down…I should use only one hand when I’m typing.
    wink, wink…

    -According to my friend’s dictionary that’s not a word either.. Don’t mind her…she loves it when we fight.
    So do I.

  9. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐqcome reality

    I mean I should use TWO hands.
    -More than or at least as many as two fingers.
