We have all heard some variation of the famous quote "If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it," which has been attributed to Lenin, Hitler or Goebbels, with no conclusive attribution as to its origins, but the truthfulness of the quote itself has been proven by studies, and it is the same psychological game the Clinton campaign and the mainstream media are playing on Americans right now.
The Hillary Clinton campaign has issued what Politico reports as "marching orders" via a specific set of "talking points," to campaign surrogates in order to provide the "spin" the campaign wants the American public to believe about her recent public display at the 9/11 ceremony where videos captured her swaying, knees buckling, then passing out and having to be carried into her vehicle.
Initially the Clinton campaign said Hillary was "dehydrated," to which every major news organization mimicked, until a statement came out from Hillary Clinton's doctor saying she had been diagnosed with "pneumonia" two days previously, which again was blared across every headline at all major news outlets.
Well the new talking points are now geared toward convincing the public how much stamina Hillary Clinton has, and include references to how Hillary wanted to "power through" her pneumonia and since their "daily message guidance" was distributed, the mainstream media and Clinton surrogates have been pushing this scripted message to the point where they manage to prove conclusively that they talke their orders from the Clinton campaign.
Hillary Clinton wanted to "power through" her pneumonia, but after Sunday’s overheating episode, it "seems like the smart thing to do" to take some downtime, even though she is "raring to get back on the trail."
Those phrases, projecting strength, prudence, and vigor, were among the six bullet-pointed talking points about Clinton’s health the campaign distributed to its army of outside surrogates Tuesday morning. The marching orders, part of the "Daily Message Guidance" from Brooklyn headquarters, instructed Clinton allies on how to answer questions about the Democratic nominee’s pneumonia and about how she dealt with the untimely setback.
While we see Clinton staffers and surrogates pushing that "power trhough" expression ad-nauseam, we also see the same talking points being pushed by news sources, such as the Washington Post with the headline "Clinton’s impulse to 'power through' with pneumonia set off cascade of problems." Others are also pushing Clinton talking points using the exact phrases that the Clinton campaign is telling them to use. One of the most cringe-worthy headlines comes from Salon, stating "Hillary powers through pneumonia — because that's what women do."
Before continuing with proof that the media is colluding with the Clinton campaign on talking points, lets also address the Clinton campaign meme that the incident seen in the first video was from "pneumonia" which is also in almost every headline.
Clinton's doctor offered a statement which said "Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning's event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely."
A few points about this.... first a doctor can only reveal what a patient gives permission to have revealed, in other words Clinton may (or may not) have pneumonia, but that can also be a symptom of other health issues, and secondly, Doctors don't always tell the truth to the public about presidential candidates.
Case in point which was highlighted by National Review, is former democratic candidate Paul Tsongas, where in 1992, Tak Takvorian, Tsongas’s doctor at Harvard’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, told reporters, "I’m very confident that he’s fine."
Tsongas won the New Hampshire primary but lost ground to Bill Clinton and withdrew from the race in March. It did not take long before it became clear that had he won the race, the best-case scenario was that the new president would have faced enormous challenges. In December 1992, he announced that a new growth in his abdomen was cancerous, and he underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatment. He spent a good portion of the next four years in hospitals, dealing with complications from the treatment. Had Tsongas been elected in 1992, he would not have lived to the end of his first term: He died on January 18, 1997, two days before Clinton’s second inauguration.
Another huge issue is the fact that a woman that was with Hillary Clinton at the 9/11 event, which there seems to be some question of whether it was a personal nurse or even her doctor, was caught giving Clinton a neurological test, which doesn't point to "pneumonia" but points to something far more serious happening before she passed out cold.
Aside from the fact that the media is repeating Clinton talking points, another instance shows that they are also protecting Clinton by editing out damaging portions of interviews, such as when Bill Clinton stated that Hillary "frequently" faints or collapses.
Bill's exact statement to CBS News' Charlie Rose was "Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors," he said, "because frequently—well not frequently, rarely—but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated."
What CBS News showed to their viewers when the segment aired Monday night was "Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors. Rarely—but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated."
The Clinton campaign and the media are practicing psychological warfare against the American public by telling a lie often enough, hammering that lie home over and over again so that people will eventually come to believe it, to the point where they will ignore what their own eyes have already shown them.
Hillary Clinton is one sick woman and it is not just pneumonia.
