How the Clintons will Destroy John McCain

HOW THE CLINTONS WILL DESTROY JOHN MCCAIN Print

E-mail

Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   

Thursday, 31 January 2008


The number of fellow Senators who think John McCain is psychologically unstable is large.  Some will admit it publicly, like Thad Cochran who says, "The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine."

Others relate times when McCain screamed four-letter obscenities right in their faces in the Senate cloak room, like Dick Shelby, Rick Santorum, or Jim Inhofe.  "The man is unhinged," one Senator told me.  "He is frighteningly unfit to be Commander-in-Chief."


That John McCain is clinically nuts is scary enough.  What worries a small group of GOP Senators and Congressmen even more is a deep and dark skeletal secret in McCain's glorified past to which they are privy, and which the Clintons will use to blackmail him.

They have been having discussions with a Russian whom we'll call "T" for Translator.  T's father was the Soviet military intelligence officer who ran the "Hanoi Hilton" prison holding captured Americans during the Vietnam War.  One of those prisoners was John McCain.

The GRU -- Glavnoje Razvedyvatel'noje Upravlenije or Main Intelligence Directorate of the Soviet (now Russian) Armed Forces - operated the entire North Vietnamese prison system holding American prisoners of war.  GRU officers, all of whom were Russians, oversaw the interrogation of every American POW.


The interrogations themselves were conducted by Vietnamese who spoke some English.  After each interrogation session, which could often include torturing the prisoners at the direction of the GRU officers, the Vietnamese interrogator would write a report of the session - in Vietnamese.

These reports had to be translated into Russian.  T, a bright teenager living in the GRU compound in Hanoi, had become fluent in Vietnamese, and ended up translating many of the reports and interrogators' notes.

John McCain, flying his A-4 Skyhawk, was shot down over Hanoi on October 26, 1967.  Badly injured from the ejection, he was beaten and abused by his captors.  In July, 1968, his father, US Navy Admiral J. S. McCain, was made CINCPAC, Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Command, commander of all US military forces in the Vietnam theatre.  Upon learning this, the Vietnamese offered - according to McCain - to release him. 


McCain claims he refused, because he demanded all American POWs captured before him be released as well.  He thus remained a prisoner when he could have gone home, and was subjected to constant brutal beatings and torture for years:  that is the source of the "war-hero" saga making McCain a greater war-hero than any other American POW.

Yet the offer of release would had to have been approved by the GRU overseers of the North Vietnamese - and T does not recall any such offer being made.  T admits, however, that this took place before McCain was transferred to Hoa Loa prison, nicknamed the "Hanoi Hilton" by the POWs.  T had only direct knowledge of what happened at Hoa Loa, and not the other prisons, where T's father was in charge.

McCain was kept at the Hanoi Hilton from December 1969 until his release, along with all the remaining POWs, in March of 1973.  During this time, T translated all the Vietnamese interrogators' notes and reports regarding John McCain.


According to T, they reveal that McCain had made an "accommodation" with his captors, and in exchange, T's father saw that he was provided with an apartment in Hanoi and the services of two prostitutes.  Upon returning to his prison cell, he would say he had been held in solitary confinement.  That may be why so many of his fellow prisoners said later they saw so little of him at Hoa Loa.

The notes and reports written in Vietnamese were sent to Moscow, where T was a now a college student, for T's translation into Russian, then placed into GRU archives.  That's where they stayed until 1991.  Late that year, as the Soviet Union was collapsing, the CIA and the GRU made a deal for a document swap. 

All of what it involved, T doesn't know.  What T's father, by now retired but still with substantial contacts within the GRU, did learn (and thus T learned) was that the swap included all of T's translations.


In other words, the CIA has in its possession the notes and reports of John McCain's interrogators at the Hanoi Hilton, in both the original Vietnamese and translated Russian, showing collaboration with his Communist captors.

Allegations of this nature have been made over the years, many by Vietnam veterans.  There is an even an organization, Vietnam Veterans Against McCain.  But they are based on suspicions and circumstantial claims.  There has never been any hard direct evidence.   

What T says the CIA has is such evidence.  Its release would destroy McCain.  The threat of its release could force McCain to take a fall, blow the election and lose on purpose.  And just who do you suppose would know what the CIA has and work with them to release it?


Someone who has been a CIA asset since he was recruited by London station chief Cord Meyer while a student at Oxford in 1968?

(Back in the 90s years after he retired,  if Cord drank a little too much Scotch, he would laugh derisively at those conspiratorialists who accused Bill Clinton of being connected with the KGB.

"They all darkly point to Bill's participation in anti-war peace conferences in Stockholm and Oslo, and his trip to Leningrad, Moscow, and Prague while he was at Oxford. ‘Who could have paid for this?', they ask. ‘It had to be the KGB!' they claim." Cord would shake his head. "What rot - we paid for it. We recruited Bill the first week he was at Oxford. Bill's been an asset of The Three Bad Words ever since."  Cord passed on in 2001.)

The small group of Senators and Congressmen who have been briefed by T have been unable to confirm with the CIA any details of its document swap with the GRU beyond an admission that such a swap "may have happened."  They are very nervous about pursuing the matter any further.

The Clintons are not nervous.  They are utterly ruthless, and have buddies at Langley all too happy to help them.

It has been noted many times here in To The Point that while most folks think the CIA is a right-wing outfit, it is not. The CIA has been dominated by left-wing hyper-liberals for years.

The CIA is a left-wing, liberal outfit, and its main job for some time now is not attacking America's enemies but conservatives in general and George W. Bush in particular.  The story is best told by friend, Ken Timmerman in his new book Shadow Warriors.


When the time is right, the Clintons will see to the leaking of the GRU archives on McCain to the media.  Bet on it, just as you can bet they'll follow it up with media disclosures of the lady lobbyists in Washington having adulterous affairs with McCain.  (There are at least three of them; I know the name of one but I'm not going to put it in writing.)

Maybe McCain will try to fight back by confirming Hillary's well-known bisexuality and her lesbian affair with her beautiful assistant, Huma Abedin.  Google "Hillary" and "Huma Abedin" and you'll get almost 6,000 hits.  Turns out Huma is a Moslem who grew up in Saudi Arabia and is strongly suspected of working for Saudi intelligence.

Or maybe he'll capitulate to Clinton blackmail.  You never can tell what a psychologically unstable guy will do.


And that last point is why - be prepared for this, folks - I would not in any circumstances vote for John McCain, not if either Hillary or Obama were the alternative.  Evil is safer than crazy.  Leftie amateur inexperience is safer than crazy.  So I agree with Ann Coulter who says:

"I'd rather deal with President Hillary than with President McCain. With Hillary, we'll get the same ruinous liberal policies with none of the responsibility."

How in the world can the Republican Party get saddled with a nutcase whack-job who knows nothing about economics, is so anti-capitalist he uses "profit" as a term of derision, has never run a business or had any job outside of government, will raise taxes, is so stupid that he believes "stopping global warming" is worth destroying the American economy, won't drill ANWR, won't appoint strict constructionist justices, won't protect marriage, will give amnesty to 20 million illegal aliens, is beloved by the New York Times, and lives in a delusionary world of vanity and rage?

Rush is right.  A McCain presidency will be the destruction of the Republican Party.  It needs to be rebuilt, not wiped out with the field clear for the fascists of the left to consolidate power and eliminate freedom.


And maybe the only way to rebuild it is in dedicated impassioned opposition to a Clinton White House.  That should be the subject of Ann Coulter's next book.  I've already got the title for her.  Her last book was If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans.

Ann needs to now write this book:  If Republicans Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans.

[A Yogi Berra note.  There still is a chance for Romney, the last remaining hope.  If he can win enough delegates on Super Tuesday next week, combined with Huckabee winning Georgia and other southern states, it may still be possible for McCain to end up with only a plurality of delegates, not a majority, at the end of primary season.  An open convention is still possible, during which Republicans could come to their senses.  It's not over until it's over.]

I don’t buy it. John McCain suffered at the hands of men like Vlad Putin. That gives him a unique perspective and no doubt gives our enemies cause to pause.

Are you kidding?

McCain suffered at the hands of the Viet Cong.

He was tortured, and suffers from the after effects.

The one reason that we don’t need to have him as our CIC
is that he is mentally deficient.

I don’t like John McCain’s position on the issues. However, I react very negatively to anyone who would disparage his patriotism. I don’t think the public will tolerate it either. I do not think it will reflect well on anyone who trys this tactic. McCain is revered as a heroe by many of the Viet Nam generation.

I do not, however, believe the same about Senator Kerry.

A couple of days ago, yazdankurd posted an article from Dr. Jack Wheeler's site To The Point News, with a potentially explosive revelation into the background of John McCain.

At the time, we lacked permission to post that article on FreeRepublic, and at the request of the management over at "To The Point News", I asked the mods here to pull it, which they did. For the curious, you can see the pulled post at Michael Reagan: John McCain Hates Me - Post #46.

Since then, due to popular request over on the "To The Point News" site, Jack Wheeler has decided to put this article on the public side, with permission to post it elsewhere.

Thanks to yazdankurd for getting this ball rolling.

I agree - they’re going to be pushing all his buttons, they’ll HAVE to drive up Juan’s negatives again to try to match hers (but never will get them THAT high).

POW torture is a different thing, it’s more systematic than this pressure, and McCain is more volatile when he’s winning...

Good Grief, Charlie Brown. Why worry about the Clinton’s destroying McCain when the Freepers are perfectly capable in spreading malicious rumors without any help...or any documentation, either.

I am not a McCain supporter, but this kind of ugly stuff makes me more likely to vote for him.

Through Russia’s proxy the NVA you mean. He was in Hanoi, no? I meant his service makes him immediately someone to garner concern or respect from our foreign adversaries. He’s not a civilian ingenue. He’s an American Imperialist to the hilt. They keep saying we can’t afford another one of those guys but I wonder.

As if it hasn't been staring us in the face for years?

He IS the 'Rat nominee.

The media is as complicit as they can be.

Get used to President Hill or Bama.

Barring that,PRAY and vote for the best nominee we have!

You raise a good point, which we mulled over a bit over on Wheeler's site.

My sense is probably not going to be in the majority on this. Anyone who went through that kind of hell gets my respect, gratitude and kind consideration, pretty much regardless of what they did while there.

However ... I will hold someone responsible for what they say and do now, in regards to their past. If they lie now and claim heroism beyond what occurred, or deny and cover up more human responses which did occur, then that gives me reason to doubt their current integrity.

You may well be right that my view won't sell well with the public.

This compulsion many of us have (even I had, a couple paragraphs above ;) to always start critiques of McCain with a statement honoring his service and heroism is beginning to feel to me like a strange variant of Political Correctness.

In any case, I'm not voting on someone for a Medal, but for President.

Why would McCain so publicly embrace North Vietnamese government types? Why would McCain help bury the POW's in the US Senate?

And it bugs me that McCain is called a "War Hero". In American history, war heros used to be guys who killed a lot of the enemy or performed with extraordinary valor on the battlefield. Assume all the noise about McCain's time as POW is BS and McCain told the unvarnished truth. McCain would not be a war hero. You could call him a valiant POW, who suffered tremendously, but that's not being a war hero.

I presume you say that because you think it would blow up in the Clintons face if they did touch it, and not because you think that the Clintons have any morals.

However, there is more than one way they could use it.

If McCain really didn't want this out, they can threaten him with it (blackmail, in a word.)

They can tease him via surogates with tasty morsels of this, driving him one step closer to the edge. By some folks accounting, John McCain won't need that many more steps to reach the edge.

You know...I was fortunate to meet, and mingle with, many returning POWS.

Not only that, but I know a lot of Viet Nam vets personally.
I know of no one who supports him.

In fact, I know many vets who feel betrayed by him.

McCain should not be trusted with anything WRT our national sedurity.

major KOOK alert

from his website
What if you had a “Personal Source” for understanding what’s really going on in the world? Now you do. He’s Dr. Jack Wheeler, and for only about 29 cents a day, he’ll give you mind-stretching pro-America insights on our lives, our politics, and our world that you just aren’t going to get anywhere else.

“Dr. Jack” predicted the collapse of the former Soviet Union, ten years before it came about - and explained exactly how it would take place. He won a bet with a top-expert when the Berlin Wall fell. In To The Point™, he’ll tell you about the plans the Chinese Underground Church Movement has to send 100,000 Chinese Christian missionaries to the Middle East to convert Moslem Arabs to Christianity.

This is very interesting, but not really surprising, is it? The Clintons have fatally damaging information that they will ruthlessly use to destroy an opponent at a moment’s notice? No kidding.

I won’t vote for McCain, ever, because I genuinely believe him to be a deeply disturbed individual who has no business in any public office, much less as Commander-in-chief. At least Hillary, though a grasping, power-addicted misanthrope, is more or less sane.

I remember during the campaign of 2000, his rants against Bush, as the campaign wore on and the pressure grew, became studies in paranoid delusion. “That HURT me, George”, he would say over and over through clenched teeth as Bush tried to calm him. The guy’s a walking time bomb. How did he get so close to the nomination?

I disagree that Jack Wheeler is a KOOK. He may have a style of promoting himself that raises honest doubts in many, and his predictions of the future are sometimes wrong (whose aren't), but from what I can tell, he does get his facts of what has happened fairly accurate, as best as I can tell.

Of course, you could be right here, and I wrong.

I might vote for him too, in that case.

I oscillate back and forth, if its Hillary vs McCain, between:

  1. voting Hillary, for the reasons Ann Coulter gives,
  2. voting McCain, because I must stop Hillary at all costs, and
  3. kicking the voting machine so hard I break a toe.

Seriously...do you think that I, or any of the people on this board, are so naive as to believe that the Democrats will not use any dirty trick to win? I have been watch politics in this country most of my 60 years and have seen many dirty tricks pulled in campaigns.

Remember those FBI files that were stored in Hillary's bedroom at the White House? I am willing to bet she checked out all the potential rivals for her run for President while she was living in the White House.

"They have been having discussions with a Russian whom we'll call "T" for Translator. T's father was the Soviet military intelligence officer who ran the "Hanoi Hilton" prison holding captured Americans during the Vietnam War."

...source of great credibility in the eyes of some.

[Little irony and sarcasm there.]

I'm not in favor of having McCain as our president due to some of his policy positions, but a couple of the accusations against him are more than a little nutty and won't fly farther than conspiracy story circles.

Looking into this a bit more, I see that Olson had been on the judicial selection committee for Guiliani, that in his endorsement, Olson specifically praised McCains preference for conservative justices Roberts, Scalia, Thomas and Alito, and that in accepting the endorsement, McCain specifically appreciated the input Olson could have on judicial issues.

If this means that Olson gets a voice in picking judges, and or that Olson himself ends up on the Supreme Court, then that would be a major plus for McCain.

No, you didn’t seem to approve of some of the primary tactics, this is still vetting-lite.

These are the Clintons, with the worse one of the two - mud bath time, this will be dirtiest presidential election of all time.

It should be crystal clear to everyone what is going to happen if McCain gets the nomination.

It would be funny to see Romney pull it out and debate his past... I mean his opponent on the issues. Either one would be a disaster.

I do not approve of dirty tricks in primaries any more than I approve of them in the general election. I know enough to expect them, but that is very different from approving of them.

I will admit that I am getting tired of the overblown rhetoric from Conservatives about John McCain. McCain's not anywhere near my first choice and I will vote against him on Tuesday, but some of the stuff being posted by Republicans on this board and around the net is more typical of the overblown hysterics of the Kos/DU crowd. It is short of logic and long on emotion...which is not typical of conservatives...
