Hillary Clinton's speech

This is an open thread to discuss Hillary Rodham Clinton's speech at the DNC. Or her epileptic fit, neural seizure, or whatever else happens while she's making it.

Meanwhile, Google expects everyone to believe that it was just a technical glitch that caused Donald Trump to disappear from the search results for "presidential candidates".

We found a technical bug in Search where only the presidential candidates participating in an active primary election were appearing in a Knowledge Graph result. Because the Republican and Libertarian primaries have ended, those candidates did not appear. This bug was resolved early this morning.
 — Google Spokesperson

Yeah, that sounds entirely credible. Since we all know how neutral Google is when it comes to this election.

Meanwhile, John Scalzi appears to be considering a career as a comedian, because this is the third-funniest thing he's ever written:
So, before Hillary Clinton puts a cap on the DNC convention with her appearance tonight, let me talk a little about what I think of her as a presidential nominee, (mostly) independent of the fact of Donald Trump as her opponent for the office. And to talk about her as a presidential nominee, I need to talk a little bit about me as a political being.
I want to talk about Hillary Clinton. But first, I need to talk about me! That's even funnier than his claim to be a "Rockefeller Republican". Or his declaration that "voting for Clinton" is "not only a preference, but a moral necessity".

@2:

She has fainted onstage more than once, suffered concussions, had a blood clot in her brain, uncontrollable coughing fits, and the seizure. She's a sick woman and she belongs at home with hospice care and her family. Putting her through the election process is basically elder abuse. No one should suffer like this.

That's bullshit. They don't "debunk" anything at all. They just try to claim she did it on purpose, when she observably has the fit, then consciously mimics it to try to make people laugh it off. The people who are right there quite clearly notice something is unusual, the female reporter right in front of her is initially horrified.

The lack of reaction from the people with her is because she regularly has these seizures, or fits, or whatever they are, so they know not to react to them. Hillary herself is clearly trained to make a joke of them whenever they happen.

The author isn't a medical expert. His bio states he is a 'truth enthusiast' with a mysterious 'degree.' That doesn't strike me as legit.

The people there don't notice anything unusual because they have an instinct of self preservation. HRC could take a dump on the floor and her courtiers would still have those dumb grins plastered on their faces as if nothing was wrong. The first one to frown in her presence might end up with a crushed larynx and an obit.

When she repeats her action it is completely different the second time. It's not disturbing but silly. That's because she's doing it herself the second time, and the first it is happening to her.

What's always amazed me is the idea that Clinton can step into the ring with Trump. No protection. Trump has a serious intelligence operation. He already knows what's in those "lost" emails. It was apparent when he matter of factly declared that Clinton would be easy.

That's not true. On the Snopes site, the second video, Monica Alba is the middle one of the three on camera with her cell phone/recorder nearly up Hillary's nostril the entire time and gets horrified at about th 19s mark at Hillary's reaction. No one "surprisingly jumped into Hollary's peripheral vision" as everyone was standing there in a scrum the whole time vying for her comment to their question.

Silly but True

Blogger Cail Corishev July 28, 2016 8:23 PM  

The Snopes explanation isn't an explanation at all; he merely asserts that it's "unproven." Well, obviously. How would you prove someone just had a small seizure without a doctor's report or an autopsy?

That doesn't mean it's not the only reasonable explanation. He says she might have been nodding exaggeratedly in response to a question about whether Fauxcahontas would be her VP, but nodding means yes, and she didn't pick her, so how does that work? Also, since when do people nod with their eyes closing and bugging open? Her attempt to laugh it off as a reaction to her drink makes no sense, since she took a sip and talked for several seconds before the reaction. That only makes her look like she did lose several seconds without realizing it.

His last argument is that no one came up with the seizure theory for a month. Even if that's true, that only means no one noticed it in all the other video that's out there these days. That's no argument at all.

Blogger Robert Divinity July 28, 2016 8:26 PM  

I expect Clinton to give a serviceable, perfunctory and quickly forgotten speech that will receive lavish praise from the communist media. Nonetheless, there demonstrably is something wrong with her. Leaving aside the video, she has prolonged coughing fits, had to take a long "bathroom break" during one Democratic debate, has an erratic temper, has fallen several times for undisclosed reasons, and her handlers shield her from all but the most controlled Luegenpresse exposure. Something obviously is wrong. It will be interesting to see if her speech lasts more than thirty or so minutes, and how she appears near the end of it. Trump may have tried to goad her to go longer with his own well-delivered 75-minute speech.

Well, it's not so much of an expectation as it is the reality. I'm just getting ahead of myself again.

I've seen literally hundreds of focal seizures. One stroke patient I used to treat sometimes had a dozen or more an hour. Probably a third of them were the same kind of jerky head bob as Hillary had in the video. Anybody who's spent a lot of time working with neuro patients recognized it instantly. But I guess if a CBS reporter says she was just startled and Snopes says it's "unproven", then that means it's completely debunked and we can safely ignore it.

Carl Shuman, a 60-year-old lawyer, had just pulled into a toll station of the Pennsylvania turnpike. Shuman has been described as a white male.

An exasperated toll worker—not addressing Shuman but grumbling to no one in particular—commented about the last carload that


“Them black people. You give them directions and they don’t understand a thing. They can’t even speak English.”

(This is Shuman’s version of what was said.)

Shuman, by his own description, was so shocked by the comment that he began to tremble. He demanded a supervisor.

His complaint about the complaint rocketed to the highest levels. The turnpike director. The press.

In a maidenly gasp to the press, Shuman called it a “Trumpian” experience, and blamed it on that bad ol’ Donald Trump

Textbook gamma (from the Scalzi piece):

Scalzi wrote: "Along with this ethos, I have a very large streak of pragmatism, which is to say, I generally think it’s okay to get half a loaf when the full loaf is manifestly not on offer. Should you go in saying “sure, I’ll take half a loaf”? No, go ahead and see how much of the loaf you can get — if you can get the whole damn thing, good on you."

Then in comments:

Justin says:
JULY 28, 2016 AT 2:41 PM
Every time you settle for half a loaf, you show the powers that be they don’t have to offer you the whole thing. And each time around, the offering gets smaller until eventually it’s just crumbs.

Four minutes later, Scalzi responds:

Ok, might as well weigh in on the seizure thing since I actually have focal seizures. You could stand right next to me during one and the only thing you'd notice is that I'm staring and chewing my lip (that's not to say a focal seizure is a zone out experience, they are actually very intense). If the seizures are at least marginally controlled with medication (they tend to be hard to control, worse than convulsive types) then they are pretty short, sometimes only a few seconds, but if they last too long or spread I've turned blue and passed out. Afterwards, during the brain reboot you might think I've just huffed paint (dilated pupils, confusion). Mine are common left temporal lobe types but the frontal lobe variety will produce spastic movements.

If you look at one of the longer Hillary videos from the side, she's talking and drinking when suddenly her speech gets scrambled and she stares. That looks very "seizure-y" to me (simple seizure aura). Then the bobble head. Then she says some goofy crap to cover the fact that temporarily at least, she's mentally retarded.

So yeah, I can see it. Plus she seems stoned like you do on anti-convulsives. They basically work by slowing brain function, which is probably one reason she can't do a news conference. Don't know how they plan to get her through a Trump debate. Shitting herself might be the least of her worries.

Though Praeli obtained a green card in 2012, members of her family still lack legal status, as is the case with many immigrant families. Praeli's mother is currently undocumented, while her younger sister Maria obtained deferred action status through DACA and made headlines after confronting President and Mrs. Obama on immigration.

(3) Born to migrant farm worker parents, she was raised in San Antonio as the youngest of seven children. As an openly gay candidate for public office, Valdez's campaign won the backing of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.

These are communists and their media organs. If Clinton has a seizure or coughing fit, expect an anti-Hillary protest to begin and all cameras focus on it. You can bet your ass they have at least that planned. The problem for them might be a fixed camera at CSPAN or a similar outlet.

For extra fun, compare NPR doing "fact checking" against Trump and Killary's speeches.
Of course, Killary checks out as factual for most of their fact checking.
The funny thing is.....what is EXTREMELY obvious, is that there are hardly any statements of facts in her whole speech. It is filled with stories and bullshit, but little actual factual information. Whereas NPR had plenty of facts to "check" in Trumps speech. they made this visually easy to compare by highlighted factual information in yellow.
