Lovell Wheeler Update:
A New Interview with Elizabeth Wheeler
American Dissident Voices broadcast
August 23, 2003
Kevin Alfred Strom
Several weeks ago on this program we detailed the story of Artie
Wheeler and his devoted wife Elizabeth for you. Mr. Wheeler, a
gun enthusiast and patriot, was arrested at his place of
employment in Baltimore and charged with three misdemeanor counts
based on alleged improper storage of gunpowder which he used in
his ammo reloading hobby. Normally, such an offense would have
the accused out on bail of at most $10,000 while awaiting trial.
But in this case, Mr. Wheeler's bail was originally set at
$2,000,000 -- twenty times the bail of even admitted terrorists!
-- and, at a recent hearing, even that bail has been revoked and
Mr. Wheeler, 61, is now being held without bail of any kind, a
truly unprecedented move for anyone charged only with a
The real reason for this treatment is Mr. Wheeler's political
views. He is a defender of the right of White Americans to
survive. He is a racial patriot. And, in the upside-down world of
Jewish morality and Jewish law, that makes him a second class
citizen. It was his political views that led the prosecutors to
ask for -- and receive -- a no-knock warrant to invade his home
with 60 heavily armed and masked men and terrorize his
72-year-old wife Elizabeth, chaining her painfully to the bed
while they ransacked their home and carried off all her money,
her identification, and her papers and computer equipment.
The Wheeler's 1st amendment rights have been violated -- because
this is a blatantly political arrest. Their 2d Amendment rights
have been violated -- as Mr. Wheeler's perfectly innocent
reloading hobby -- practiced by hundreds of thousands if not
millions of Americans -- was in no way illegal. Their 4th
Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure has been
blatantly violated, since the warrant makes utterly false
allegations that Mrs. Wheeler's association with the perfectly
legal National Alliance -- an organization standing up for the
interests and culture of White people -- somehow makes Mr.
Wheeler a "terrorist threat." And their 8th Amendment rights have
been totally taken away from them, since that amendment
guarantees that excessive bail shall not be imposed.
There have been some developments in this case. So we are once
again honored to have Mrs. Elizabeth Wheeler as our guest on
American Dissident Voices. Welcome, Mrs. Wheeler.
Elizabeth Wheeler: Thank you, Mr. Strom. Thank you for having me.
KAS: Mrs. Wheeler, your husband was torn away from your side some
seven weeks ago. How is it going for the two of you now?
EW: Not good. Not good at all. Each day brings new things that I
have to face and deal with. And I'm finding it more and more
difficult to go to sleep at night. And I discovered last Friday
that for the first time in my life I have high blood pressure. I
think it is all due to the stress and the unknown that I'm having
to face right now.
KAS: I can certainly understand that. I understand that you're
developing some symptoms of possible injuries that were the
result of your maltreatment when the goons invaded your house. Is
EW: Yes, sir. I've been suffering with my right wrist now ever
since the first of July. I thought it would possibly get better
on its own. But it didn't. It got worse. So last Friday I went to
see my doctor. And it is still quite swollen. He gave me some
medicine to take which tones down the pain somewhat, but does not
get rid of the swelling nor the redness in my wrist. When they
broke the door down and came in my house that Tuesday, July 1st,
they pushed me back and took hold of my arms and put these
extremely uncomfortable wrist restraints on my hands and arms and
around my wrists very tightly -- and I told them at the time that
they were too tight. But they didn't pay any attention to me at
all. And I sat there for, I guess, about five and a half hours...
KAS: All the while these restraints are still on extremely
EW: Exactly. And after that five and a half hours, I finally had
enough of it and I told them again, I said "These things are too
tight on my wrists -- and they hurt!" Well, one of the fellows
came over and loosened them slightly. But not enough really to
give me any relief.
KAS: Now, there were some 60 armed men in your home -- is that
EW: Men and women. There were about three different women that
came in the house along with the rest of the men.
KAS: But still some 60 people, heavily armed: What possible
reason would they have to restrain you in such a manner? A
72-year-old grandmother against 60 armed agents.
EW: They're trying to intimidate me.
KAS. Unbelievable. Sickening. Now I also understand that your
husband has been injured while in the hands of these people. Can
you tell me the story of that?
EW: It occurred last Tuesday when we went to the courthouse
downtown to listen to his bail hearing. And, as they were getting
him out of the van to go into the courthouse, he slipped and fell
on his spine. And of course he was trussed up with those chains
and the handcuffs in front of him and he couldn't stop his fall.
And he fell on his spine. And he's been suffering with it ever
since. I understand that there are some films from one of the
television channels who took pictures of him falling and limping
into the courthouse.
KAS: Did he simply fall by accident or was it due to the actions
of his guards that he fell?
EW: They had one of those milk crates that you put milk bottles
in, turned upside down, at the entrance to the van. And he
slipped on that, and fell back into the van, and fell on his
spine. Now whether it was an accident, or whether it was the
action or lack of action of the guards I do not know.
KAS: I did see a brief film clip on Baltimore television of your
husband, and it looked to me like he was being fairly heavily
manhandled by the two Black guards that I saw in the clip --
however, that was not at the time of his injury I believe. Some
news reports state that your husband is in solitary confinement.
Is that true?
EW: Yes, sir, that's right.
KAS: Why have they placed him in solitary?
EW: Because he's a "danger to the jail population," Mr. Strom.
KAS: Well, surely you don't believe that.
EW: I think it's funny; don't you? A 61-year-old man who's
overweight... And, by the way, I should bring this out: He's been
in jail 49 days today, and he has lost 73 pounds.
KAS: That sounds like something that should certainly be
investigated by your attorney. Now I know that the thugs who
invaded your home...
EW: The hooligans...
KAS: Yes, the thugs and hooligans who invaded your home took all
of your own identification away from you...
KAS: ...making it impossible for you to legally prove your
identity, and thus making it impossible for you to see your
husband. Have any of your ID documents been returned to you?
EW: There was such a hue and cry from the television and the
radio stations about them taking my identification that they
decided they'd give it back. And they gave it back to me on the
eighth of August.
KAS: So it was over a month that you were not able to see your
husband because they would not accept your declaration that you
were his wife...
EW: I wouldn't have been able to see him anyway because I didn't
have a picture ID. I couldn't get a picture ID until I had all
that paperwork, all those identification pieces.
KAS: So have you been able to arrange things so you can see your
EW: I went out to the MVA [Motor Vehicle Administration] last
Friday and got a picture ID.
KAS: Have you actually seen him yet?
EW: The only time I have seen him was at the courthouse. Would
you believe they told me that he has to be in jail 60 days before
he is eligible for visitors?
KAS: That is hard to believe. What was it like to see him in the
EW: I thought he looked very pale, and his eyes were puffy.
KAS: Did he see you?
EW: Oh, yes.
KAS: What did that feel like?
EW: Sad. Very sad. Mr. Strom, our marriage is not like most
marriages. We are almost like one person. And I feel like half of
myself is gone. And I know that he feels that way, too. And to
see him the way that he is there breaks my heart.
KAS: I can believe that.
EW: It breaks my heart.
KAS: Have you been able to speak with him at all?
EW: I do talk with him every morning on the telephone. I don't
know what I would do if I couldn't.
KAS: Well, thank goodness you are able to do that. I don't want
you to betray your legal strategy or any private confidences, of
course, but can you tell us how he's feeling right now?
EW: Sweetheart is a very strong person. He's not swayed by the
things that turn most people aside from how they feel and the
things that they know to be true. He has a great deal of
confidence in his ability to withstand things. He does not
complain. He doesn't say anything against the people there in the
jail. He knows how to be careful -- with himself, and for me.
He's just the most unusual man I have ever, ever met. And to be
able to have lived with a man who has that type of personality is
something that no one can imagine.
KAS: And no one can ever take that away from you, whatever comes.
EW: That's right. That's exactly right.
KAS: In the course of your telephone conversations, which I am
very glad you've been able to have, has Mr. Wheeler mentioned
anything that he would like people on the outside -- our
listeners perhaps -- to know?
EW: Oh, yes. Most definitely. I told him this morning that I was
going to do the interview with you this evening. He wants people
to be aware that this is being done by those "special people" who
are directing things in this country. They direct the media. They
direct the government. They direct everything. They are strong
and powerful and they have the money behind them.
KAS: Now, Mrs. Wheeler, I also know that all of your cash was
kept in your home, and that the government goons took that too,
making your very existence that much more difficult. Have you
managed to get your savings back?
EW: No, I have not. I am mainly existing on the generosity of
people who have sent in donations. Which has been wonderful.
KAS: We want to repeat the address to which donations may be
sent. Could you please give us that address right now, Mrs.
EW: Mrs. Elizabeth Wheeler, 512 South East Ave., Baltimore, MD
KAS: Thank you. I'll repeat that address later in the program for
those who missed it the first time. On what possible basis could
these criminals justify stealing your ID and your money? How
could those things even be connected with "improper storage of
gunpowder" or "reckless endangerment" -- the only things with
which your husband is charged?
EW: Mr. Strom, these people don't need reasons. They do what they
do. And they don't need any justification for it.
KAS: There was recently another bail hearing, at which I hear
that Mr. Wheeler's $2,000,000 -- absurdly high -- bail was
completely BANNED. Now he's held completely without bail.
EW: That's right.
KAS: What was the argument at that hearing for holding him
without bail -- which, as far as I can see, is illegal?
EW: He's a "danger to society."
KAS: You told me how your husband is holding up physically. How
is he holding up spiritually -- how does he view his persecution
and your persecution?
EW: Well, he resents what they have done to me. Very very much.
But he knew the risk that he was taking in professing the views
that he has. So it was not a surprise to him. And he accepts it.
he seems pretty well convinced that they are not going to let him
go. And it won't matter what kind of an attorney he has. They are
determined to keep him right where he is.
KAS: Because of his political views.
EW: That's right, sir.
KAS: Not because he stored gunpowder in unapproved containers.
EW: Right. It has nothing to do with guns, Mr. Strom. Nothing.
KAS: What is his view of how you have been treated?
EW: Mr. Strom, it's as though Sweetheart and I are one person.
And I believe the way he believes. I believe what he believes.
And if he is going to be persecuted for what he believes in, then
I don't mind being persecuted for what we believe in.
KAS: You're a brave woman. And an honorable woman.
EW: I feel so strange being told that. Because I don't feel brave
at all. I don't know how a brave person feels.
KAS: I think the fact that you have continued speaking out -- you
have continued with your radio broadcasts, the Reading Hour for
White Children -- you've appeared on this program -- and you've
certainly not backed down or asked for mercy from the criminals.
All of those are brave acts. And I would say that a brave woman
feels the way you feel, right now.
EW: Thank you, sir. I appreciate that more than I can say.
KAS: Looking back on what has happened, is there anything that
your husband or you would have done differently, if you could
somehow go back in time with the knowledge you have now?
EW: Not one single thing.
KAS: You've already said that you could use donations of money to
help you get through this, Mrs. Wheeler. Is there any other way
that my listeners, and my fellow National Alliance members around
the country and the world, can help you?
EW: Sweetheart needs to hear from people. We need to give out his
address where he is now, so that people can write to him and let
him know that they are interested in him and what is happening to
him and give him some strength behind him -- so that he won't
have to do it all himself.
KAS: Would you please give his mailing address for our listeners
EW: Yes, sir, I will. It is Lovell A. Wheeler, #935446 5N 35B,
300 East Madison Street, Baltimore MD 21202.
KAS: I'll repeat that address for our listeners later in the
program, and I'll make sure that it's printed on our Web site as
EW: Thank you.
KAS: Thank you, Mrs. Wheeler, from the bottom of my heart for you
and your husband's stalwart courage in the face of naked
oppression -- you are an example to us all; to every White man,
to every White woman who hears our words.
EW: Mr. Strom.
EW: Sweetheart wants White patriots to realize that this could
happen to any of us. Any of us at all. And it is going to
increase. So be careful what you do, what you say, and where you
keep your firearms.
KAS: I would also add to that that I would hope that we would
continue to grow in numbers, and continue to awaken our fellow
Americans. Because there is strength in numbers.
EW: That's true.
KAS: I would also like to add that Chairman Gliebe sends you his
very highest regards.
EW: Thank you, sir. Thank you very much.
KAS: And thank you for being a guest on our program, Mrs.
