Dr. Jack Wheeler, the Jack Armstrong of the “Reagan Era” has penned one of the most mendacious pieces of trash I’ve ever seen. Naturally the object of his wrath is John McCain, who is evil and must be destroyed. It doesn’t matter how the Right does it. If they must resort to debunked lies, innuendo, half-truth, and character assassination all’s fair, right? This time Jack Wheeler has a two-fer. Not only does he get to carry out a hit for the mainstream conservative anti-McCain world, but he also gets to spread lies and innuendo about Hillary Clinton.
I’m not even going to start on the Huma Abedin issue, aside from the fact that just because she is Muslim does not indicate she is evil, a spy, or even a terrorist. Just read the dripping innuendo in the above paragraph. FYI – I’ve been told by a fascinating source that Hillary Clinton is not bisexual. He then implies an exclusive from respected journalist Ken Timmerman, but there is nothing. I have additional information on who his “source” might be, from my “exclusive source”. Ms Abedin does not deserve the treatment she is receiving because she happens to be what all indications are a very efficient personal assistant. Everyone and their poodle knows how tight the Clintons are with the Saudis, so what’s the deal here?
Then Wheeler harps on the mental instability of John McCain. If what I have found in the Newsweek article quoted below is true, John McCain has probably undergone more psychological testing than anyone who has run for POTUS.
He repeats the lies of the Vietnam vet groups. You might also want to note that he takes care to reference people who are no longer alive. I have additional information about them below, including one interesting little tidbit. Ted Sampley attacked on of McCain’s aides.
The origin of the nasty stories about John McCain go back to the 2000 campaign. They have been debunked time and time again, To The Point where one wonders just what Dr. Wheeler’s actual agenda is.
It makes one wonder just who is in charge here. I find the timing of all of this just too precious. We have Novak’s hit last week, then the release of the Citizens United ad, a call to arms by Roy Beck of Numbers USA, Malkin’s usual Hate McCain dribble, and now this. If you judge a man by his enemies, I think John McCain does quite well. It also makes one ponder the meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything: Why the you know why do a certain group of conservatives who are basically the same anti-immigration nut-cases hate John McCain so much. Just what does he do to threaten them?
Weyrich spread the tale of mental unstability in 2000. The Sampley lies. ConWebBlog has more about the smear here. The original Sampley article is disgusting. We went through this a few weeks ago in South Carolina. Here is a recap of what went on in SC, which sounds remarkably like what is going on now with Jack Wheeler. Don’t these people get tired of repeating the same old debunked lies.
It makes you wonder what kind of a person inspires all of this wrath from both liberals and conservatives.
A South Carolina Hit
In his article, How the Clintons Will Destroy John McCain in his Too The Point News, Jack Wheeler repeats over and over how psychologically unstable John McCain is. Unfortunately, and I hate admitting it, the rumors about McCain’s mental stability go directly back to Karl Rove in the SC 2000 Presidential Primary. Some of the stability questions and his military service questions stem from Vdare in 2006.
A few days ago, Roy Beck of NumbersUSA issued what amounts to a “fatwa” against John McCain. I think part of this hit on McCain by Wheeler is simply Wheeler marching to the John Tanton command.
As yes, it all goes back to – immigration. As in Vdare’s hit on him about a month earlier. More from Vdare about McCain’s problems – Immigration! Steve Sailer has written more about McCain’s mental stability. I find this abjectly hilarious. Steve Sailer is one of the leading racists in the country, and a friend of Michelle Malkins. More about McCain’s stability from Peter Brimelow. You should note that Peter’s twin brother, John was one of the heads of one of the various National Socialist organizations here in the US. Oh, the reason that McCain’s mental stability is to be questioned – AMNESTY! Wheeler is one of those “conservatives” who wishes to assault the Constitution by repealing the 14th Amendment.
THE HILLARY FACTOR
If you are going to take out Hillary, do it for this!
DAMAGE DONE IN 2000
Do you notice a similarity in the following story of what occurred in South Carolina in 2000 and what is going on now? Fact is, people like Jack Wheeler are recycling old and debunked LIES.
two weeks ago in New Hampshire.” Cindy turned to him sobbing. “We never called his wife a weirdo.”
Jack Wheeler, like all the usual suspects is part of this entangled alliance of wanna-be celebrities and inside the beltway power players. I have a “source” who has known Wheeler for some time. I am quoting from a recent email.
I’m thinking this stunt he is pulling is a marketing ploy to drive people to his site and seduce them with sensational content. Who knows, he may be about broke and this is a hail Mary. He appeared on FoxNews a few times. Once was during the Dubai Ports debacle, and he was defending my side of that issue — the side of the Bush administration and the UAE.
I speculated he’ll appear on Limbaugh or Hewitt because Hewitt recently stooped low enough to have world expert Michelle Malkin on to dump her recent garbage about the evil Mexican spies in the McCain campaign. Or whatever her latest parrot droppings were about. But maybe he won’t get booked on anything mainstream (I use that term loosely)….”
I know the type. They are the barely inside the Beltway hanger’s on who are living hand to mouth, just barely keeping their heads above water, trying to ‘make it big’. From personal experience, when cornered or crossed, they can be vicious. They also excel in back-stabbing and self promotion.

There are additional blogs repeating these lies, but I gave up after the first baker’s dozen.
I truly don’t understand what motivates seemingly decent men and women to repeat a lie they know has been repudiated not once, but many times. What kind of hate lives within the blackness of their souls? It is obvious they don’t give a rip about what this does to a decent man and his family. They have become so entrenched in their irrational hate that they no longer think rationally. How dare they? I truly wish people who spread lies the way they are doing could be taken out for libel. If the material in question had been created in the state of South Carolina we would have some recourse. Unfortunately sick, perverted men like Jack Wheeler can write what ever they wish and equally sick and perverse individuals take delight in slandering and destroying a decent man’s reputation.
Have you ever had anyone lie about you? I’ve been on the receiving end of malicious and destructive lies several times in my life. Lies have cost me dearly in my life. They are one of the Big 10 – you know – the Thou Shalt Not Big 10. When you do the false witness thing against another person, if you don’t confess, and you claim to be a Christian, you are in very deep do-do. I would suggest finding either a Catholic or Episcopal priest and confess and seek absolution. Lent is coming up in three days. I suggest you spend the next 40 days reflecting on the destruction of lies.
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH
This comes from Newsweek. You might want to take note of how very different this is from Wheeler’s lies, half-truths, and innuendos.
The details of those medical evaluations make you wonder why McCain is not stark raving mad today. Tortured repeatedly to extract a confession, McCain “tried to hang himself X2 to avoid giving in,” reads the report of a psychiatrist at Jacksonville Naval Hospital in Florida who had interviewed McCain in 1973. “Broke three teeth as a result of rocks in diet,” records another. Last week, as I read to McCain from these long-ago documents, he chimed in, “And also a fist in the face a couple of times.”… He has made a long, hard journey from being a “rebel without a cause,” as he described himself to one of those Navy psychiatrists back in the 1970s, to a man who aspires to lead the nation and the world. As an angry toddler, he would hold his breath until he passed out (his parents’ cure was to drop him fully clothed into a bathtub of icy water). He has found transcendence, if not exactly peace, through duty and suffering that most people can barely imagine…McCain did make a meaningless confession of his “air piracy,” and it haunted him to think his father would find out. Unbeknownst to McCain, his father had been elevated to become CINCPAC, the commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific, making McCain into what his jailers called a “Crown Prince.”
….As a propaganda stunt, McCain was offered early release after about a year of captivity. He refused to leave before his comrades—and remained in prison for four more years. McCain sensed that he was getting “extra attention” from his guards (i.e., more beatings), but also that they did not want him to die or to return home gravely scarred. Always, the fear of disgracing his forebears hung over him. “He has been preoccupied with escaping the shadow of his father and establishing his own image and identity in the eyes of others,” reads a psychiatric evaluation in McCain’s medical files. “He feels his experiences and performance as a POW have finally permitted this to happen.” Released after the 1973 Peace Accords, McCain returned to the United States a hero. “Felt fulfillment when his Dad was introduced at a dinner as ‘Commander McCain’s father.’ He had arrived,” noted the psychiatric report in 1974….McCain does have a refreshing knack for reaching across the aisle. In 2004, he had a vodka-drinking contest with Hillary Clinton on a Senate junket to Estonia. Former Democratic majority leader Tom Daschle has written that he engaged in serious talks with McCain in 2001 to bring him over to the Democratic Party. “I was never going to leave my party, you ask anybody, I was one of the biggest campaigners for Republicans out there,” McCain insists now. McCain is not a loner, but he is independent-minded. His staff is devoted; they call themselves “McCainiacs.”…
…Sen. Thad Cochran, Republican of Mississippi, has had his share of dust-ups with McCain, usually over some appropriation that McCain regards as pork-barrel spending. “He gets very volatile,” Cochran tells NEWSWEEK. “He gets red in the face. He talks loud.” Cochran, who says he is still a friend of McCain’s (“at least on my part”), says the Senate dining room has lately been buzzing with Senator Hothead stories, mostly stirred by a recent wave of press interest. “I was surprised to find so many senators who’d had a personal experience when he’d lost his temper,” says Cochran. Did he find McCain’s temper to be somehow disabling or disqualifying in a potential president? “I don’t know how to assess that,” says Cochran. “I certainly know no other president since I’ve been here who’s had a temperament like that. There’s some who were capable of getting angry, of course. Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter both. But this …” His voice trailed away. “You like to think your president would be cool, calm and collected. He’s commander in chief.” (Cochran has endorsed Romney, who has sought to make McCain’s temper a campaign issue.)…”
