Asking questions - and demanding answers - about Clinton's health not conspiracy mongering

When speculation about Hillary Clinton's health began to appear in conservative media, I didn't take it seriously. I thought it was typical political froth that circulated on the fringes of the campaign.

But now we have hard evidence that either Hillary Clinton is the most overconfident candidate in political history or there is something seriously wrong with her.

Clinton has only 2 events scheduled between now and September 1 - a fundraiser today with Cher and a speech at the American Legion convention on August 31. There is an "organizing event" in Las Vegas on August 25th, but that's not a rally or speech. It's just the candidate making a few remarks in front of campaign volunteers. With only 80 days to go before the election, Hillary Clinton appears to be coasting.

Other events could be added to the schedule. But it would be irresponsible not to speculate about why Clinton is having so few major rallies this close to the election.

Jim Hoft has run some numbers:

While Trump continues to smash Clinton in attendance at events, Clinton continues to take time off. Clinton took the weekend of August 6th and 7th off, three days off the following weekend, August 12th through 14th, and has not held any campaign rallies since Wednesday, August 17th.  She also has no events scheduled to participate in through Sunday August 21st and as noted above, she has no campaign rallies scheduled in the future at all.

Clinton is holding campaign speaking engagements only 50% of the time. When Clinton had a similar pattern in the primaries, mainstream media came to the rescue and implied that Clinton’s strategy was “going small”.  This is nonsense and it is more and more clear that something is wrong with Clinton.  She is either weak or sick or both.

Clinton will be 69 if she wins and takes office on January 20, 2017. That would make her the second oldest president to begin a term. Sixty nine is not ancient by today's standards, but Clinton is at an age where serious medical problems begin to crop up.

Her behavior, her unsteadiness, and most telling, her extremely light schedule of activities all point to a serious health problem that Clinton is trying to hide from the voter. She wouldn't be the first candidate to hide bad health. John Kennedy suffered from Addison's disease, an extremely debilitating illness. The drug regimen he was on made him groggy. Eventually - perhaps before the end of his second term if he had been re-elected - he would have died.

It is not conspiracy mongering to demand that Hillary Clinton get some kind of report from an independent doctor giving her a clean bill of health and put these troubling questions to rest.
