Mary Mallon immigrated to the United States from Ireland at the age of 15, and eked out a living as a cook in the greater New York City area. Her life in America would just be one more hardscrabble story had she not contracted a symptomless form of Typhoid Fever. Over the course of eight years “Typhoid Mary” became a “healthy” carrier and infected 49 people, three of whom died. Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, a woman made famous through nepotism, has not killed anyone by disease but she has infected the nation’s blood stream with a virus so virulent that the nation is on the verge of becoming a banana republic – in the meantime Hillary Clinton’s character has been shot to smithereens.
“You know, I’m not sitting here like some little woman standing by my man, like Tammy Wynette,” Hillary said in 1992. That’s right Hillary, at least Tammy Wynette was genuine. And we are all familiar with Hillary’s corkscrew landing into Bosnia dodging sniper fire on a mission that was so secretive, it never happened. Her response to being caught was, “I misspoke.”
The best example of the spread of the Hillary Virus is with our own President Obama – according to Politifact✔.com in 2009 at the AMA convention the president said: “I know that there are millions of Americans who are content with their health care coverage — they like their plan and, most importantly, they value their relationship with their doctor. They trust you. And that means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” Yet just this past week, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, there were conditions to the president’s promise. Translation, the president was just Ad libitum, that is adlibbing. Carney in now infected with the Hillary Virus.
The pandemic continues to spread, now it’s spread to enrollment figures. “Not everyone who has selected a health plan has paid for it yet, officials said.” (Nevertheless), CNN reported that Obama claimed victory at a White House Rose Garden ceremony on Tuesday, April 1st, saying that he had met his own self-imposed deadline to enroll 7 million Americans in the Affordable Care System. Mr. Obama looked into the camera and said we reached 7.1 million. The minute I heard this figure I assumed (correctly) something was not right. 7.1 million Americans checked the box that they intended to enroll, but the president would not say how many actually enrolled and paid their first monthly premium. The American people should not trust President Obama because it “wouldn’t be prudent.” Indeed, even “Health of Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a moment of honesty told an Oklahoma TV station on Monday that insurers were reporting that 80% to 90% had paid so far.” This means the president missed the mark by 1,065,000 people, so only 6,035,000 signed up and that is using the president’s 7.1 figure. The Pandemic continues to spread.
The original carriers of the lying virus among baby boomers were the Clintons. Bill was first with his profession of fidelity towards his wife but that wore off as soon as Hillary started tripping over Bill’s conquests at the Executive Mansion in Little Rock, Arkansas. But she also become infected, and proved to have contracted a more virulent strain of this affliction.
Hillary becoming a modern day “Typhoid Mary” is a tragedy since her parents sent a brainy, blonde-haired, blue-eye doe to Wellesley College in the summer of 1965 only to have a ruthless creature emerge four years later ready to deceive the world for her own personal ambitions.
Today’s pandemic is not biological but rather cultural. A true medical crisis like the Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919 killed approximately 30 million people, more than died in WWI. Yet, the current Hillary pandemic may leave a more permanent mark on our nation if it is not eradicated soon.
