What happened to Kathleen Sebelius's eye?

By Ed O'Keefe

Considering the name of this blog, we took great concern with the left Eye of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, which appeared puffy on Wednesday while she testified to a Senate committee.

Sebelius had a basal cell carcinoma removed from her forehead on Tuesday during a successful standard outpatient procedure, according to HHS spokeswoman Jenny Backus.

"She is back fighting to get everyone the same good health care she has," Backus said in an e-mail.

Nothing is wrong with her eye and it only appears puffy because of the effects of the procedure to remove the skin cells from her forehead.

Basal cell carcinoma is a slow-growing form of skin cancer that can appear as a bump or growth. It can be removed through a simple outpatient procedure or more serious surgery, depending on its severity. As you can see in the image above, the outpatient procedure made Sebelius' left Eye appear puffy.

Sebelius, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Education Secretary Arne Duncan testified Wednesday at a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on the federal government's H1N1 flu preparations.

She's too old for the cancer treatment according to Tom Daschle. She should get on a piece of ice in the artic and float out to sea. This would save the money that would be wasted on her for someone younger who would be productive for much longer. It is the new Democrat American way.

Her "bad eye" is much more attractive now. If both of her eyes looked like that, she would have that "come hither" bedroom eyes look. As it is now, she has one hot eye and one crazy raccoon eye, which, ironically, is the healthy eye.

Blood pools in the eye following surgery on the forehead. After such surgery a person naturally gets what appears to be a "black eye," which fades with time. In short, nothing is wrong with her.

COVERT FED DEPLOYMENT OF MICROWAVE/LASER RADIATION 'DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS' AGAINST U.S. CITIZENS -- AND OUR NATION'S POLITICAL LEADERS?

Thousands of unjustly targeted Americans are being physically harmed, their health degraded by the devastating physiological effects of being silently irradiated by microwave and laser radiation "directed energy weapons"...

...the WEAPONIZATION OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM, CAMOUFLAGED AS CELL TOWERS and available in portable weaponry to security and law enforcement...

... a silent "final solution" that may have the nation's political leadership in its ideologically-driven cross-hairs.

This technology is capable of altering moods, emotions, inducing fatigue, weakness, exhaustion, confusion, life-altering injury, diseases such as cancer, and a slow-kill death.

And key elements of the Obama administration -- chief among them the defense/security/intel establishment -- are proliferating these technologies by various modalities -- reportedly, from hand-held weaponry to satellite and terrestrial cell tower based delivery systems.

American citizens and families targeted by this covert torture matrix also are subject to financial sabotage that decimates their livelihoods and financial resources...

...and relentless "community stalking" -- harassment, surreptitious home entries and vandalism by government-enabled vigilantes affiliated with federally-funded community policing and anti-terrorism organizations.

Warrantless, covert placement of GPS tracking devices and misuse of cell phone technology to hunt down the unjustly targeted enables this grassroots terrorism. But the Obama administration continues to allow these warrantless intrusions into the lives of unjustly targeted American families.

PRESIDENT OBAMA/CONGRESS:

BAN the use of microwave/laser radiation directed energy weaponss against the American people (including experimentation); and

BAN the warrantless tracking of individuals via GPS or cellphone technology -- the electronic backbone of an American Gestapo now operating on YOUR watch.

Sebelius is proponent of baby killing and forgiveness for murdering pedophiles. She opposes weapons for self protection. She thinks she is a Catholic but disagrees with the doctrine. Ms. Gilligan is an administrator. She has no idea how to approach medical concepts. She has delegated most of her HHH duties to her directors. With all the appointed Harvard and Kennedy School grads in Obama’s camp she is a bumpkin. I believe she was appointed because of her expertise in the con game and pro abortion stance. Her expression prior to surgery was bewilderment and depression. She is a face and only has some authority over finances. She is as unqualified for her position as OB is for everything but community organizing.

Concerning the remarks by loony-left d-crat socialist TAX CHEAT "honest-kate" Sebelius on the "public option" (i.e. nationalization and full government control of a rationed healthcare system), let us note the following:

Kathleen Sebelius - hussein's SECOND TAX CHEAT candidate for HHS secretary - used undocumented, phony deductions to cheat the federal government out of more than $7000 over three years.

She LIED repeatedly to the IRS!!! Do you actually expect she'll tell the truth to the American people?????

"honest-kate" proves the point:

Q: When is a loony-left d-cat socialist telling lies about their plan to enact government-controlled, nationalized, limited and rationed American healthcare?

A: Whenever they're talking about it.

"She is not fighting for the common folk to have the same health care she has. NOT A SINGLE Senator or member of Congress has agreed to take the plan they are forcing on us."

[sigh]

Trying to ensure competition and that we have choices in our healthcare is hardly "forcing" anything on us. We have several states where one private health insurer has 80% or more of the market, and we're not able to access other plans based in other states.

This is broken record bs from the Obama / socialist / Democrats. There are many other solutions that have been offered from allowing health insurance companies to compete across state lines, to dropping all of various federal and state mandates about what health care coverages must be offered (some people don’t need or want to pay for drug rehab, abortion coverage or sex-change operations - but those who want to should be able to buy it), increase number of medical school seats, get illegal aliens out of the country so that we aren’t proving emergency medical care for them, put caps on med malpractice cases, lots of other things that involve getting the government out of many aspects of the health care business and letting the market place do more to solve the problems. The Obama / socialist / Democrats have refused to discuss this solutions, have refused to allow amendments to the proposed legislation, have even refused to disclose what the hell the proposed legislation actually says, won’t even agree to make it public unit after its passed. Besides most of the Obama / socialist / Democrat ideas contain (or at least appear to be contained) in the Obama / socialist / Democrat heath care legislation will not solve any problems but will make things worse. They are not “solutions”. So drop the bs about those who oppose the Obama / socialist / Democrat health care plan complain without offering any solutions. Try debating the real issues instead of repeating stupid “talking points”.

The fact that Kathleen Sebelius had a basal cell carcinoma removed from her forehead is sad and we pray she will have a total recovery. The lie foisted in this article, however, is bad. When her spokeswoman said "She is back fighting to get everyone the same good health care she has," you should have challenged her arrogant lie. The government concoction that is being forced on "we the people" will never provide the "good health care she has." She is a politician and these people get paid far too much with benefits that the vast majority of Americans do not have now and never will have under "Obama-care." The Washington Post should have reported that she was testifying and had a minor surgical procedure to remove the cancer but you should become journalists and challenge the Washington Political lies. By failing to do this, you admit to one of many reasons that people do not trust the news media or the politicians. Shame on you.

Sebelius and the legislators in DC have refused to be included in the government plan that they're trying to shove down our throats but that they will exempt themselves from.

Oh, if all Americans could only have the Rolls Royce health care plans that the government elites entitled themselves to AT OUR EXPENSE.

Since when do our employees (yes we pay their salaries) get better health care programs than those paying their salaries?

What kind of idiots do they think we are? Eighty five percent of us don't want any CHANGE and over half the country doesn't want obamamao care.

So one more investigation won't really matter. Besides, if Obamas immgration reform goes through we will all be second class citizens right behind the illegal immigrants he which intends to grant citizenship. They will all come before natural born U.S. citizens because they will of course be beholdin to Obama and vote Democrat ensuring socialist rule forever.

Since those in Washington sell out to the lobbyists and cannot pay their taxes and do all kinds of unethical things, maybe they should lose 90% of their pay, lose their pensions and health care plans all paid for by the taxpayers.

Anyway, many of these companies were ordered to take the money supposedly to protect those that were hurting. This was so the American public would not know who was strong and who was weak. Now they are all being punished equally.

Beside that most Americans are bailed out with taxpayer money so maybe we all deserve to have Obama take away our pay. Oh that is right that is what he intends to do. By the way what I meant by that is we have cash for clunkers, first time homebuyer tax credits, mortgage interest deductions, money to unions, money to teachers, to students, to mice, pigs, to the poor and not so poor. Maybe everyone should be asked to give up 100% of their pay and have Comrade Obama decide what they should get in return.

Dear Mr. Sebelius,

It has come to our attention that the recent surgical procedure you had (Excision of Basal Cell carcinoma of the Face) was not Pre-Authorized by our office. The Department hereby informs you of the following:

(1)You may not pay the provider out of your own pocket for the procedure.

(2) You may not seek payment of your doctor by any third party, including friends or relatives.

(3) Your doctor may not seek reimbursement from any source.

(4) You doctor is in violation of federal statutes for examining you and recommending treatment without prior authorization from the DOHCCC. His NPI # will be sent to the FBI for investigation and he could be subject to severe penalties.

(5) Your entire medical file will be reviewed by a DOHCCC Counselor for evidence of fraud or misrepresentation and you will have to undergo a series of reeducation lectures.

(6) The cancer removed from your face must be sutured back on your face by a DOHCCC Health Care Technician between the hours of 10am to 2PM weekdays at your nearest FBI office by 1month from the date of this letter. If the original cancer cannot be located then you must locate a reasonable facsimile and present it at the time of re-implantation.

Your DOHCCC.

Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little over 60 years ago,
witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with five aliens
aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell , New Mexico .
This is a well known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and other federal agencies and organizations..
However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April 1948, nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:
Albert A. Gore, Jr.
Barack H. Obama
John F. Kerry
Kathleen Sebelius
Howard Dean
Nancy Pelosi
Dianne Feinstein
Charles E. Schumer
Barbara Boxer
See what happens when aliens breed with sheep and jackasses?
I certainly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you.
No wonder they support the bill to help illegal aliens!
Now You Know
Ummm nine months? Be realistic! sheep only have a pregnancy period of six months, mules eleven to twelve months, and who the hell knows with aliens. On the other hand I’m sure Obama’s health care plan will solve the mystery..

She can set an example for what is sure to come

She could use that picture to promote drive-through surgery in the health care bill.

I've read most of the comments and am trying to figure out the affiliation of most of the others who submitted comments. It appears that there is a concerted effort by some group to vent spleen. Have I read the collective wisdom of the tea party movement, of the birthers, or a bunch of conservatives who seem to be enjoying themselves? Please let us know.

I don't know what your purpose was in submitting these comments. It certainly was not to convince others of the correctness of your positions. Most of the comments are so offensive that fair minded individuals think you have nothing to say and have no opinion that is worthy of respect.

My view is that Secretary Sebelius is very well qualified for her position; that she has done a very fine job; and that she is one of President Obama's best appointments. Not one of the hundred or more comments that attack her has led me to even question my view.

Her "bad eye" is much more attractive now. If both of her eyes looked like that, she would have that "come hither" bedroom eyes look. As it is now, she has one hot eye and one crazy raccoon eye, which, ironically, is the healthy eye.

OMG!! This comment is too funny! Unfortunately, cancer isn't so funny so I'm glad it was caught and dealt with appropriately!

Remember during the campaign when she suggested that Republicans were using some kind of secret code in their speeches that referred to the N word? Instant Karma, what goes around comes around. And now she wants all our children to get the H1N1 living virus, I mean vaccine. Eugenicists beware, this could happen to you.

GEE, MAYBE SHE'S BEEN HANGING OUT WITH TOO MANY CHICAGO THUGS...

OR

IS THAT WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU 'MUST' TAKE YOUR SWINE FLU SHOTS.... DO YOU THINK SHE WILL ALWAYS LOOK THIS WAY.....?????

YEIIIIIIIIIIIKS!

SHE STILL LOOKS LIKE 'NURSE RATCHETTE' TO ME.

OR 'DORIAN GREY'...

(That's what her soul looks like...) or the swine flu got her.

I will bet that the lion's share of commenters on this page found this story through Drudge Report. I have no knowledge of Ms. Sebelius, except that she is a Democrat and is affiliated with the Administration. It really doesn't matter what the story is about. Matt Drudge just surfs the internet to gather images of well-placed Democrats that make them appear physically horribly. This is a low and old news trick to discredit political adversaries. Mr. Drudge plays the game with precision. Put the high relief words and central image impressions together: HHS, cancer, cigarette, abused woman, and old. No further reading required. It's brilliant because he got the Federal Eye to do his dirty work. All it needed for subversion was his titling, subtle amplification, and nudging upnews triage order (as is so often the case). Add your own horde of right wing commenters and the E network types, and you've just juiced a front page smear out of a back page human interest piece. Just brilliant, and sadistic. The man is a misanthrope - no doubt about it.

finserra, go back to la-la land and your leader, Bathtub Boy. Drudge is my first stop each session. The truth really upsets you, doesn't it.

Somehow, I don't see regular Americans getting the same stellar healthcare as Sebelius and the rest of the Washington elite have access to. I'd prefer to buy my own...and not be forced to pay for yours. This is a fraudulent bill and an invasion of privacy on a massive scale. What a rip!

"Effect of too many free radicals in system?"
"Hey, you paid for it America!"
"Health Care Outlook."
"Health Care Oversight"
"You should see the portrait in her attic!"
"We want a health plan just like hers...no wait!...."

Isn't Ms. Backus forgetting that goverment officials will have a separate, but likely very unequal, healthcare plan than the one they want to force on the rest of us?

Sick? Oh this woman is sick alright, in the head. She is on my list that I hope and pray for to die, each and every night. In fact, the entire Obama Adminstration is on that list, especially the Traitor-in-Chief.

To most of the others, you've made me bust a gut. Great comedy. Please keep up the good work.

did nobody notice that there is a bandage on her forehead that covers part of her eyebrow and they drew an eyebrow on the bandage!! That cracks me up. One question, aren't these meetings with congress scheduled ahead of time, why didn't she just put off her surgery until after the hearing?

I can not believe all the posts on here.
99% of you have no heart or compassion for
anyone.Reguardless of her views or votes
on any thing that she works on she is still a human being With Cancer that has been removed from her face...Get real people,just like everyone else,if she did not have any insurance she would still be able to get care at any hospital.she at least deserves some quite good wishes for a quick recovery.it suprises me that the moderators let 99% of the comments be posted.
peace

Ed O'Keefe, I can not believe that you got by with using that headline !!!!!!
Where is you compassion for human kind...
By you using that horrible headline it gave posters here Free Reign to feel like they can Bash Ms. Sebelius at at time when i know she is very concerned about her health..SHE HAS CANCER .... That is the most scary medical diagnosis that a person can get...
I for one am ashamed of you..You owe Ms.
Subelius a written apology...
