The Internet Reformation and Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton's Illness Prompts Conspiracy Theories ... Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most famous current female political figure, has fallen ill. "In the course of a follow-up exam today, Secretary Clinton's doctors discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago. She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours," a spokesman for the former first lady said yesterday in a statement. Clinton's illness, and the fact that she has not been seen in public in the last three weeks, has prompted a slew of wild conspiracy theories. – Weekly Standard
Dominant Social Theme: Don't worry about Hillary. The kid is all right.
Free-Market Analysis: This is one of those exceptionally convoluted stories that we think provides a view as to how the Internet Reformation is affecting news coverage.
In the past, the power elite and its enablers and associates in the mainstream press could easily control the narrative. What we call "directed history" was established in dramatic ways. Everything from wars to political crises were carefully planned.
The idea was always to create the impression of great danger in order to push the middle class into giving up wealth and power to globalist solutions. World government was – and is – the goal, it seems.
The tools used by the power elite for this purpose are what we call dominant social themes and such themes have subdominant themes, as well. The latest news regarding Hillary Clinton falls under the category of subdominant social theme.
The dominant social theme itself has to do with the sacredness of government and those in its employ. The subdominant social theme has to do directly with Hillary Clinton, who has been presented to the world as an example of a feminist icon and a genuine androgynous genius – one at ease in the company of men but relentlessly focused on a mission to create an equality of the sexes.
Such individuals are valuable to the ruling elite on numerous levels. Hillary is possibly being groomed for POTUS. Given this potentiality, the stakes are high. Whatever happened to Hillary that has made her sick – supposedly the flu, dehydration and a subsequent fall – has been carefully disseminated from a mainstream media standpoint.
This was supposed to have been the "real story" – at least to begin with. And 20 years ago that would have been just fine. Oh, perhaps some might have believed that Ms. Clinton and her staff were somehow dissembling but these doubts would not have surfaced. What was reported by the mainstream press would have stood without serious rebuttal.
But in the 21st century almost no meme of the elite, however insignificant, goes unchallenged. Initially, the alternative 'Net media put out the idea that Ms. Clinton was "sick" because she didn't want to testify about the Benghazi, Libya killing of an American diplomat under her watch. Now the reporting has taken a bizarre turn.
Various sources are reporting that Ms. Clinton was on her way to secret negotiations with Iranian officials when her plane crashed, killing a US general and injuring her severely. It was this plane crash that gave her the blood clot that US officials have recently mentioned. She is said to be resting at home but rumors now swirl that she was hospitalized and came close to dying herself. Here's some more from the article in the Weekly Standard.
"EXCLUSIVE! HILLARY CLINTON BRAIN CRISIS," the National Enquirer headline reads. "Only days after The ENQUIRER exclusively reported that Secretary of State HILLARY CLINTON was at the center of a shocking brain cancer drama and was undergoing extensive secret medical tests, her reps went public with the news on Sunday night Dec. 30 that she was indeed hospitalized in New York City and disclosed that she was battling a blood clot that had formed following her head concussion earlier this month!"
Another report, this one in eutimes.net, shockingly claims, "A new Foreign Military Intelligence (GRU) report circulating in the Kremlin today is saying that United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was injured, and a top US Navy Seal Commander killed when their C-12 Huron military passenger and transport aircraft crash landed nearly 3 weeks ago in the Iranian city of Ahvaz near the Iraqi border."
Before Clinton's admittance into the hospital over the weekend, some speculated that the timing of Clinton's illness was suspicious. After all, she was scheduled to testify in front of Congress about the terror attack on 9/11 in Benghazi, Libya. That testimony was postponed.
The Weekly Standard article concludes that, "All the speculation, however, might not be that surprising. After all, there's a lot of intrigue around Clinton." But we would argue that the scope and detail swirling around Clinton currently is not like what has usually gone before.
One can argue that perhaps certain factions WANT various reports circulating about Ms. Clinton but wanting and "getting" were once two different things. In the current perfervid environment with thousands of outlets on the Internet capable of disseminating almost any perspective on the news, official stories don't have the impact they once did.
Whether it is an alternative narrative concerning 9/11 or the truthfulness of Barack Obama's birth certificate, sizeable minorities of citizens in the US hold different opinions – opinions that have been arrived at via Internet reporting. The impact is serious, even though coverage of this evolution is often lacking.
We don't know what's going on with Ms. Clinton. What we DO find significant is that such reports regarding Hillary and other top officials circulate not only in the alternative 'Net media these days but also in the mainstream press that can no longer afford to ignore such reports.
Of course, such reports are almost always belittled and mocked. But their very ubiquity must surely drive the gradual realization among people who don't follow such things that there is much more to the news these days than what is being reported.
The alternative news reporting acts as a kind of corrosive erosion. Each story is a droplet of water wearing away at the larger narrative of elite credibility. Wasn't it Ms. Clinton herself who said not long ago that mainstream (government) narratives were losing out to 'Net reporting? Now she has been victimized by the very process that she once denounced.
The video above provides us with a mainstream narrative. Compare it to the Weekly Standard article to see how reporting has changed. Those boundaries don't exist anymore. It is, of course, a little-commented on effect of the Internet Reformation.
Ms. Clinton, get well soon!

I think Hilary's greatest regret is that she did not have a dick and was thus not able to bugger Gadhaffi's dead body.

What grifters are the Clintons -- the Thenardier and Thenardiess of Empire politics!

With a little brain damage she might be a little less dangerous. It makes no difference anyway. If in four years the U. S. electorate is stupid enough to vote for her, we need to move off planet.

Hillary is a murderer: "We came, we saw, he died." She has been on the list of career sociopaths all her life. Now she's reaching for international adulation. Spare us getting sick to our stomachs from reading and hearing about this creature from the lagoon too often.

I would hope that IF this woman is being considered for POTUS in 2016 that all remember ... a brain clot normal does some mental damage (like a minor stroke). Add this to her already unstable mental attributes I would hope at least the voters would take heed!

Or: Hillary is in bed as Andrea hangs up the phone. (Her face is uplighted showing her aging and almost demonic countenance)(creatively at this point we could also throw in a brief twist of creative licence where we show her face as it contorts to become that of a demonic high priestess.) she extends her hand and brushes Hillary's forewardhead with the back of her fingers. "Don't worry dear, you'll be fine." She then begins to put on her scarf and coat to brave the cold chilly air. "I need to get home to Alan, he needs an update." "We'll talk again tomorrow."

BR: ... so, you can appear in the dock with the other pawns THEY will be forced to "sacrifice" in a fake purge by fake justice, "proving" "whew, that's over, all is well"
hardly, just the beginning:
