Remembering John Wheeler III
John Wheeler and the media's Vacuum Effect
I have coined a new term related to John Wheeler's murder. I call it the Vacuum Effect.
A Vacuum Effect forms, I believe, when information on an event becomes either incomplete or is intentionally buried by those who have the ability to fill it, such as from our federal government or the ones who are responsible for running today's national media outlets. Even FOX News had dropped the story after giving their original report on Wheeler. So who are Americans to trust for information about the world around them so they can make intelligent decisions? The answer is obviously not many.
Rush Limbaugh was the first to refer to these newer national media outlets and their spin machines on news as the drive-by's. He called them the drive-by media because they represented the days of prohibition in the 1930s when gangsters would pull up to night clubs, represented by a local liquor king's competitive territory, and open up from the windows of the cars firing from what was called Tommy Guns. After shooting the establishment full of holes and destroying people's lives in the carnage, they would quickly drive away leaving a mess. And so goes the name for a mainstream media that spins a story, does as much damage as possible, and then quickly drives away.
This change in the media began in the 1960s with the slow pushing out of conservative news casters and newspaper managing editors to be replaced by liberal thinkers, eventually liberal thinkers taken over by socialist progressives. That is who represents the media today and the one that has ignored investigating further into John Wheeler's death, a Vietnam Vet, a conservative, and one who is said to have almost single-handedly pushed for the building of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C.
Is it then any wonder the progressives that now run what Rush identifies as the drive-by media want Wheeler buried again quickly?
How did America get to this place in time having to endure such a corrupt media running America's right to know? I have a theory on it.
When our forces returned from Vietnam, many spoiled brats born from those heroes who climbed out of the aircraft and off the ships that won America WWII, learned to use the black and white TV news cameras to promote their new wimpy slogans. Remember ones such as "Hell No, We Won't Go!" Some witnesses at the time observed that large groups of students would strangely remain calm until the camera's red light came on, radical leaders then getting them to scream and shout like they did when they had lost their binkies as babies. Today many of these same radical hippies are now not only turning into boomers, but Czars in the Obama administration.
Many of our WWII heroes had sworn their children would never grow up to know the kind of sacrifice they had made for America while protecting loved ones back home. And they got their wish , their college-aged youth even enjoying an act of spitting on the returning heroes from Nam as they reached the safety of American soil.
Sadly, too many of the WWII heroes created in their children the opposite of who they had been. Many of their college-aged kids about twenty years after WWII would burn their draft cards, run to Canada or foreign countries to avoid the draft, or cause riots in the streets and at college campuses in the 1960s. Bill Clinton was one of those attacking the U.S. over the Vietnam war, reported to have done so while even standing on foreign soil. But later in the 1970s Jimmy (rubber bullets) Carter would give a blanket pardon to close to 100,000 draft dodgers, allowing Bill Clinton to later run for president of the United States.
Groups were also formed by those anti-war radicals, their members attempting to bomb government buildings and police stations. One of the most violent groups was called the Weathermen lead by radicals such as Bill Ayers. Ayers would later become friends with Barack Obama as part of the activities of the CAC, candidate Obama spinning his relationship with Ayers by saying he (Obama) was (cough) only eight-years old when the Weathermen set out their bombs.
And that leads us right back to John Wheeler and the Vacuum Effect.
As with any vacuum, natural physics requires that it always wants to be filled. And that is exactly what happened last week when an Internet news site called the European Union Times, (EUT) printed disturbing claims that were centered around the murder of Wheeler. As mentioned, the media did not care much about investigating Wheeler's murder, a man responsible for helping to erect the Vietnam Memorial, a former Vietnam vet, and a conservative having served under George Bush senior.
The EUT is known to come out with stories that are outrageous or even challenged as fact, the site accused of purposely creating hoaxes. I got involved when one of my e-mail recipients sent the story to me written by the EUT, asking what was fiction and what was fact in our world, his knowing how corrupt our government and media are today . . . a government filled with Czars and a media filled with radical progressives and socialists.
This was while another site had used copy from the EUT story, but adding photos via a video it had been created. It simply made Wheeler's death look more like a conspiracy. But that's what happens when you have the Vacuum Effect in play and legitimate news sources refuse to do their job.
But in today's media, what is a legitimate news source? Being outrageous can also be said of MSNBC or CNN. CNN reported that the word crosshair shouldn't be used on the cable network, thinking between the lines it might make an unstable person go out and shoot someone. This was CNN's host's reaction to the Tucson shooting a few weeks ago, the shooting that instantly shoved John Wheeler's murder off the front pages of newspapers and TV screens across America. It was as if the shooting had done the media and government a favor. I reasoned later that Wheeler had not only been tossed into a Newark dumpster, but now had being tossed into the media's dumpster, his death no longer being investigated or even card about. I mean, where was the memorial?
In situations like this where the media wants a story to go away, suppression of information will cause my Vacuum Effect. Is it then any surprise that when looking for a government or media memorial to the death of John Wheeler, you can only find material like this that not unlike what was written in EUT?
On January 25, 2011, 25 days after John Wheeler was discovered in a land fill in Newark, New Jersey, nothing was on Google about funeral arrangements.
The Vacuum Effect also applies to the investigation of John Edwards. Remember at the time when virtually all the mainstream media refused to tell the truth about their darling liberal progressive? However the Vacuum Effect left by the media on Edwards had to be filled, and in fact was eventually satisfied from of all places a supermarket tabloid, you know those sources that say ET has landed.
The tabloid reported Edwards' had a love child while his wife was dealing with breast cancer, now deceased. It was a story the entire mainstream media, including the New York Times, wanted to keep buried from the public because Edwards was (cough) one of their own, a top leading Democrat who one day might be president of the United States. Once the story was out, this is how the elitists in the media treated the story that had caught their boy with his zipper down.
Looking at this type of non-vetting by the progressive far-left media, one would assume that only men like Edwards with their values are welcomed by the media to represent the Democrat Party for the highest office in the land. After all, in the end it is the progressives thing to do.
As you can see the report from the tabloid on Edwards turned out to be 100% correct, and as mentioned at the time the only news outlet that would print the truth. Of course no Nobel Prize would be coming their way from the far-left socialists in Norway, the ones who gave Obama a peace prize for what he might do, their thinking of it in a positive light while Americans were having to deal with it under the category of damage control.
While involved in the Wheeler research on the Web, I discovered a lot more people were also wondering what was John Wheeler doing that caused him to be murdered in such a way you would only see in the movies. Was a message being sent secretly by our government to others such as Wheeler saying, "Do this, too, and you'll wind up in a landfill with no one in the media giving a damn?"
The story put out on Wheeler from the EUT, while outrageous in part, was sadly the only one that brought Wheeler's murder to the forefront. So again Americans was being forced to ask the mainstream media and their government again, "What the hell happened to this Vietnam war hero and a high government official having worked under a former president?"
In looking into the facts and comparing them to what was in the EUT article that was called a hoax, I discovered the following:
So while the EUT article had been outrageous, some of the information the EUT provided was correct with some of the facts surrounding Wheeler's death reasonable to be suspicious, while the other claims . . . well until the vacuum is filled we'll never know where the truth lies. And while waiting for the truth, be sure you listen to the four Michael Savage segments on John Wheeler's murder, again posted above from January 5, 2011.
As mourners on January 22nd recalled Sarge Shriver's charity, idealism, in a ceremony attended by President Bill Clinton and others, John Wheeler's death received no more attention than an inner-city vagrant's body found in an alley. Wheeler was a patriot, a graduate at the top of his class at West Point.
He was not a bum. He was a national figure, a Vietnam hero. And his memory needs to be returned to that stature in front of the American people. If not, then there is something very sinister going on in your Federal Government that John Wheeler knew about while the media was told to stay away. I wonder if John Wheeler had been a liberal progressive Democrat working for the Obama administration if his death wouldn't have stayed about the fold on the front page of the slimy New York Times.
I hope you realize that if John Wheeler, a Vietnam vet, wasn't safe in traveling around America, none of us are.
