The press covered up for Franklin Roosevelt by ignoring the very severe physical deterioration of his body throughout the 1930s. He was not well enough to run for a third-term, and the result was a pact with the devil -- Stalin -- that gave half of Europe to the Soviet Empire in the war's aftermath.
Likewise, Jack Kennedy's Dr. Feelgood experience with pills almost led to a nuclear war in the Cuban missile crisis. I doubt reporters outside Ben Bradlee of the Washington Post knew the severity of this. He was likely drugged out as well.
As for Hillary's health, she is physically and mentally exhausted, and needs to be in nursing care, not the White House. Oh, they can pump her up and brush her teeth to get her through a 90-minute debate. But the press covering her -- overwhelmingly female and rooting for her victory -- is covering this up.
The WikiLeaks come too late to save the country from this journalistic malpractice. However, they are revealing, nevertheless. In an email to Hillary henchman John Podesta last September 15, Hillary minder Neera Tanden wrote, “I mean it makes my life more difficult after telling every reporter I know she’s actually progressive but that is really the smallest of issues. It worries me more that she doesn’t seem to know what planet we are all living in at the moment.”
Shee may be writing metaphorically.
We live in a dangerous time in which the levers of power already are in the hands of the unseen -- Valerie Jarrett -- but presidents have for a century had powerful chiefs of staff as the government outgrew the Constitution. What makes this even more alarming is that while Obama and other presidents make the final decisions on the big issues, Hillary is physically and mentally incapable of making those calls. The hint is that Bill Clinton would do that but he, too, has dsenior moments.
These are not well people.
Pray for the country. Vote for our future.
