I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE STATE OF EMERGENCY
MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
It has been my experience that people do not like to hear that the political arena has been damaged. They tell themselves lies to appease their doubts about what they have invested in politically.
We live in times of selective perception, based on a well-crafted form of management by the media and political talking heads.
The preferred form of perception management is deceit, secrets and a well-controlled policing of thought.
Truth cannot live in an environment of secrets. Americans cannot continue to survive when they are living from day-to-day in an environment of trauma and oppression.
A dark shadow is growing in this country and the population seems to be living under a heavy hand of threat and crisis that we are told is waiting at our borders.
However, there is another threat I think needs to be exposed before we build a wall to keep it in and that is the threat of the darkest evil that wears the mask of good intent.
We know that there is a Deep State that seeks to cut off one branch of power in order to replace it with abusive measures to control this country and open it up to a silent coup that will eventually wind up being another casualty of the New World Order.
The shadow government has within its grasp the ultimate say in who lives and who dies and with various false flag crises will maneuver stealthily through the auspices of power to have full spectrum control.
You may want to blame one political party or the other, but the enemy is much greater than any conservative or progressive attitude that is controlling the conversation of derision for any kind of common ground.
The Deep State remains as the shadow that is engulfing the minds of the populace, and while those who claim to be woke will claim that they are immune – it appears that there is always a breaking point.
Everyone has a price — everyone loses a bit of morality when their world is always in a State of Emergency.
We become philosophical and say to ourselves that we have to give up something in order to survive.
We give up things that give us less pain. Then we are asked to give up more, when more is asked we see it as the sacrifice beyond that we start to feel the cold bald of despair.
By then we are desperate and it is then where we feel what is called rock bottom.
We either decide that it is time to give up – or we fight.
I am curious if we as Americans are satisfied with surrendering to the darker will. I would hate to think that we are of the opinion that all hope is lost and that we are willing to surrender our freedom and sovereignty for a world where we are constantly living in a State of Emergency?
We all know that there is something wrong. We always think we have a solution that is so simple and yet it is beyond our own egos to realize that the simple answer we have arrived at is so wrong.
The enemy is complex, it is not found in your neighbor or their different political ideologies or religious beliefs.
The enemy that we need to conquer is the global plantation, where freedom is supplanted with the privilege granted only by the masters who dole it out to you for meritorious loyalties, keeping us on leashes like tamed dogs at a circus.
Since the attacks of September 11th, 2001 I feel that we have given up the majority of our basic liberties to a shadowy, unaccountable emergency state.
The reason why no one can see it is because it has been secretly upheld since the times of Franklin D. Roosevelt and whatever is keeping us in a State of Emergency has been kept secret.
What is the terrible enemy that has kept us in this State of Emergency?
The answer is the shadow — the shadow government which stands for one nation under control, divided with liberty and justice for none.
They are there in hiding expecting us to pledge allegiance to the State of Emergency.
For so long we have been under the spell of trauma, and as the government continues to be shut down we are finally feeling the sting of going without. We are feeling the sting of what it means to face an even more widespread emergency.
One that will certainly lead to even more division, more constitutional gerrymandering and in extreme cases police state activities that can include the cessation of basic rights.
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have given way to permanent crisis management: to policing the planet and fighting preventative wars of ideological containment by way of censorship and perception management.
Soon after the social media “purge” of independent media sites and pages this past October, a top neoconservative insider named Jamie Fly was caught stating that the mass deletion of anti-establishment and anti-war pages on Facebook and Twitter was “just the beginning” of a concerted effort by the U.S. government and powerful corporations to silence online dissent within the United States and beyond.
While a few, relatively uneventful months in the online news sphere have come and gone since Fly made this ominous warning, it appears that the neoconservatives and other standard bearers of the military-industrial complex and the U.S. oligarchy are now poised to let loose their latest digital offensive against independent media outlets that seek to expose wrongdoing in both the private and public sectors.
The group is known as the Newsguard project lobbying to have its rankings of news sites installed by default on computers in U.S. public libraries, schools, and universities as well as on all smart phones and computers sold in the United States.
In other words, as Newsguard’s project advances, it will soon become almost impossible to avoid this neocon-approved news site’s ranking systems on any technological device sold in the United States. Worse still, if its efforts to quash dissenting voices in the U.S. are successful, Newsguard promises that its next move will be to take its system global.
Again this means that all voices of dissent or any marginal views will be filtered through another ministry of truth apparatus that will squash any and all content that is not approved by an organization or government.
Newsguard separates sites it deems worthy and sites it considers unreliable by using a color-coded rating — green, yellow, or red — and more detailed “nutrition labels” regarding a site’s credibility or lack thereof.
Rankings are created by Newsguard’s team of “trained analysts.” The color-coding system may remind some readers of the color-coded terror threat-level warning system that was created after 9/11, making it worth noting that Tom Ridge, the former secretary of Homeland Security who oversaw the implementation of that system under George W. Bush, is on Newsguard’s advisory board.
As Newsguard releases a new rating of a site, that rating automatically spreads to all computers that have installed its news ranking browser plug-in. That plug-in is currently available for free for the most commonly used internet browsers. NewsGuard directly markets the browser plug-in to libraries, schools and internet users in general.
Think of it as a form of a social credit system for news — something that is similar to what China has implemented and what was originally proposed with Google’s Dragonfly deal with China.
This would indicate that there are some very sinister moves that are happening behind the scenes and that the checks and balances provided by independent media on the internet will be silenced or even attacked as fake news.
Once again this is perception management that will certainly violate constitutional rights to a free press. If the powers that be are hell bent on silencing dissent – you can imagine what is in the works for the future or America — something far-reaching than just a declarative emergency.
It all appears to be happening in sequence – it all appears to be a sequential lead up to an abrupt upset in the way things will be handled in the future.
It has to be something so grandiose and abrupt that they want no dissenting views that will expose the machinations of the shadow government and the move toward the New World Order.
We have already endured civil unrest, other national emergencies, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance and insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters—what more can happen?
We can only imagine and when it does happen, we won’t be able to revolt or rebel against it.
It will be triggered by our own government – or by the criminal element that secretly plots the destabilization of the United States.
This latest concerns over President Trump’s threat to declare a national emergency in order to build a border wall is more manufactured political theater – a Trojan Horse intended to camouflage the real threat to our freedoms: yet another expansion of presidential power exposing us to constitutional peril.
This is not about illegal immigration or porous borders or who will pay to build that wall.
This is about unadulterated power and the rise of an “emergency state” that justifies all manner of government tyranny in the so-called name of national security.
If there is an official state of emergency we will have to be subjected to demands where there has to be some sort of directives given for the smooth continuity of Government.
These directives (National Security Presidential Directive 51 and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20), which do not need congressional approval; provide a skeletal outline of the actions the president will take in the event of a “national emergency.”
Mind you, that national emergency can take any form, can be manipulated for any purpose and can be used to justify any end goal—all on the say-so of the president.
According to the National Emergencies Act of 1976.
All that is required is that the president formally declares a national emergency but also that he or she cites the specific statutory authority the president sought to use. An emergency declaration would lapse after one year unless formally renewed by the president.
In the end, the president can easily obtain congressional ex-ante authorization which is literally a blank check for the executive branch to do whatever is necessary to alleviate the emergency –including suspending parts of the constitution.
Now according to the mainstream media, we’re facing a doomsday scenario if the shutdown persists. We have been hearing trigger words and phrases like “economic hellscape” and “devastating impact”—among many doomsday descriptions –and an emergency declaration may put some people into panic mode.
If you are without money, and food and you depend on the government for such services you can and eventually will feel the vice grip on everything long before others who do not rely on such things.
If the worst were to happen, experts say the devastating impact would be widespread:
38 million low-income Americans lose food stamps
6 million faces an uncertain timetable for collecting tax refunds
2 million without rental assistance and facing possible eviction
800,000 paycheck-less federal employees plunged into dire financial straits.
Shuttered parks and museums while overstressed airports cause tourism to drop.
Federal court system slows to a crawl
Disaster relief money doesn’t get to storm-ravaged areas
Lapsed FDA and EPA inspections lead to dangerous outbreaks of disease
Private companies looking to go public are stuck in limbo
Stock market plummets
If Congress and President Donald Trump can’t reach a deal on raising the debt ceiling, its game over – we will witness a severe recession.
We now are witnessing a manufactured crisis to override constitutional constraints and the rule of law.
Now that being said I am not saying that we do not need secure borders—we do, I am not saying that a wall is out if the question because I see it as a symbol of security.
However, what I cannot condone is the war of ideologies that have created this crisis in the first place.
We must see what is happening again as a warning of how close we are to the edge of collapse.
If the State of Emergency is continually propped up and abused by the executive branch of government, we may see something far more restrictive being implemented after President Trump is long gone from the Whitehouse.
Every action taken that stretches the credulity of the people can weaken the system of checks and balances, sidestep the rule of law, and expand the power of a predator state.
Extremism can lead to despotism, despotism will put us in a state of tyranny — tyranny will create a greater divide and the system will implode as America eats itself and the New World Order makes soup of our bones.
