Clyde Lewis | January 8, 2021


Once again, a listener inspired me to do a show and it was simply because the listener chastised me for using what he said was hyperbole. I was simply pointing out the hypocrisy of the media attacking the protesters in Washington DC when for more than nine months we witnessed Antifa and BLM burn our cities to the ground. The listener replied, Clyde – cut out the hyperbole – they did not burn the cities to the ground.

At first I took the post as insensitive because I had to deal with the mobs first hand in my city of Portland. So I told him that he should cut out the douchebaggery and understand how I feel. I then conceded that he was right – I was indulging in emotive hyperbole.

I realized that hyperbole was the magic word of the day and in all honesty the listener whether he knows it or not taught me a lesson – if only he could teach the media and the left wing extremists the same lesson maybe we could find some calm and assess the situation.

One thing that I have realized is what is happening is a sign of things to come. We are seeing the curtailing of free speech, right to file grievances, and soon you will not be able to bear arms — I don’t know — you can say all you want about how Trump was bad but we are starting to see the “clampdown” happening right now — this is the country that Joe Biden and his friends are building.

The events that have happened seem to be rhyming with another horrible event in history and that is the Reichstag fire.

If you are not familiar with that event, the date was February 27, 1933. Adolf Hitler had been sworn in as Germany’s chancellor just four weeks hence, though his Nazi party was in an unstable position at the center of a coalition government holding a small plurality of 32 percent of the seats in the Reichstag — Germany’s parliament under its Weimar Republic. At the time Hitler had an agenda in mind to secure a much larger portion of the Reichstag’s seats in order to create a majority for passing an Enabling Act that would allow him essentially to rule by decree, at an election set for March 5.

By happenstance or contrivance on the part of the Nazis, it’s still a matter for debate — a fire was set in the assembly chamber of the Reichstag building which raged until the structure lay largely in ruins. A 25-year-old Dutch communist with a sketchy history as an arsonist named Marius van der Lubbe was found at the scene and charged with the crime, along with four other communists, as the Nazis used the Reichstag fire as evidence of a communist putsch to overflow the Weimar Republic.

As a political weapon, the Reichstag fire was incredibly useful to the Nazis — their representation in the Reichstag grew to 44 percent of the body, giving them a majority of 52 percent with allies included, especially when Hitler was able to convince German president Paul von Hindenburg to sign the Reichstag Fire Decree suspending most civil liberties and banning the communists from participating in the country’s parliament.

What we know as the Third Reich followed.

The Reichstag fire has been the shining example of a “false flag” operation, in which a hoax of some kind is perpetrated in order to inflame public sentiment against parties not guilty of the conduct the hoax is intended to portray.

Oh, but I can hear people say – But Clyde, you again are indulging hyperbole.

I think that if you hear me out – you will see that what you remember about what happened on January 6th – is not exactly what the media said happened.

The shocking sight of Americans taking over the Capitol elicited speculation about whether it was a coup, an insurrection, a riot, or thuggery. These are the magic words that the left leaning media used to vilify the entire group. The media also failed to realize that not only were their trump supporters among those who participated but Antifa members were there too.

While meme makers were busy creating pictures of an actor wearing ox horns claiming he was Antifa, a real Antifa member was rolling his camera on Ashli Babbit the woman who was shot as she attempted to crawl through a window in the capital building.

Filming the incident from behind Babbit, John Sullivan who is the founder of the far-left organization “Insurgence USA” made headlines in July after he was arrested for intimidating drivers in Provo Utah. Sullivan was interviewed by Anderson Cooper on CNN and CNN either was oblivious to his criminal background or was very aware of what they were doing which in and of itself speaks volumes as to what is happening and the agenda that is being pushed.

They literally were interviewing a criminal and actually putting in the crawl that he was a spokesperson for a leftist insurgence organization.

John Sullivan has previously called for ‘revolution’ and to ‘rip Trump’ out of his office.

Insurgence USA describes itself as “the revolution.” It began protesting racial injustice in policing last year following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

In August 2020, Sullivan spoke to a small crowd at a Washington, D.C., intersection and pointed to the nearby White House and unleashed a torrent of violent rhetoric. “We … about to burn this s— down,” he said. “We gotta … rip Trump right out of that office right there,” he continued, adding, “We ain’t about … waiting until the next election.” He then led the crowd in a chant of, “It’s time for revolution.”

In his later interviews, he swears that he was at the capitol gathering to just document it and that he and others from BLM and ANTIFA were not there to be part of the rioting and yet his Insurgence USA group’s website advertised an event called “Kick These Fascists Out of DC” on Wednesday around the same time as a pro-Trump rally near the National Mall.

The events have revealed the fragility of America’s institutions , and its vulnerability to political violence and threats. The inability of federal security forces like the Capitol Police to defend the nation’s 535 lawmakers was shocking. Ironically, the Metropolitan Police of District of Columbia had to help rescue the very legislators who have been claiming that it is time to defund the police.

It also revealed how the media was able to use hyperbole in order to describe events that they perceived were all being carried out by Trumps supporters and not acknowledging other groups that were there to actually take out a sitting president.

They called it “one of the darkest days in our nation’s history”, a day that will “live in infamy.” Other media oulets spun it as the day “American democracy was attacked and prevailed”, the day the nation nearly fell to “fascists”.

It literally is just one more grand sweeping illusions upon which the new administration will exploit and use as evidence of persecution and sedition. It is being used as the Democrats Reichstag fire as history has a tendency to rhyme.

I hope you can understand that I am not using the Reichstag fire as emotive language and I am not using it for effect or hyperbole— I simply am seeing the parallels that are quite disturbing. I don’t want people to ignore history and I worry that the people of the United States are falling for yet another Psy-op.

If you remember, the Reichstag fire was a staged attack on a political building, deliberately misattributed to political enemies and used to consolidate the power of a freshly installed leader.

Even the media coverage is similar, the Nazi government and their tools in the press talked about it in the same exact terms as the US establishment is describing this farcical “coup attempt”. Aiming to terrify people into thinking they were on the verge of an all-out civil war.

Within 24 hours of the Reichstag burning, the German President had passed the Reichstag Fire Decree, which declared a state of emergency that totally reversed every civil right the Weimar Republic had guaranteed its citizens.

Some prominent voices are calling for all lawmakers backing Trump to be expelled from office. The Washington Post claimed, “seditious Republicans must be held accountable”.

The anti-social media campaign has begun again in earnest too, with Parler and GAB already being blamed for allowing “violent language” on their platforms.

As Twitter and Facebook limit discussion, alternative platforms will be shutdown. Enforcing a corporate monopoly that cooperates with the state…the very definition of fascism.

All this in the name of protecting the nation from “neo-Nazi thugs” or “white supremacists” or other phantom threats. In the name of “protecting the constitution”, they are tearing it to pieces. In the name of “preventing a coup”, they are carrying one out in front of our eyes.

The over use of the word coup by the media is also suspect when you consider the true meaning of what a coup is. A coup or coup d’état is the removal of an existing government from power, usually through violent means. As you may have already guessed the protestors were not there to overthrow a government or to unseat the sitting president — they were conducting what can be seen as Democratic Security meaning that it was their intention — or so we determine was to protest what they saw as election fraud. They were there to see that the current president remained in power — they were not there to sieze power, they disrupted the certification of the Electoral vote.

That is not a coup. Coups are organized to take over and replace a government. They are there to force one leader out and put another leader in its place.

I really don’t think that was the objective of the protest. However it appears that like the Reichstag fire — it is being used as an excuse to invoke the 25th Amendment and Impeachment of a President that still has 12 days left in his position. Trying to unseat a president in order to put someone in his place.

That is the real coup.

It can be argued that yes, Trump riled up his supporters shortly before the events unfolded by reminding them of how the election was stolen from them. It’s unclear whether he meant to “incite” the subsequent storming like his opponents speculate, and he did later tweet that everyone should remain peaceful, but he nevertheless at the very least unwittingly contributed to what happened.

His supporters clearly employed the very Color Revolution tactics like ANTIFA/BLM did in democratic strongholds across the country by gathering at government buildings and the strategic use of violence to generate instant attention to their agenda, but they did so for the purpose of reenforcing one administration , not changing it or destroying it.

There is a huge difference.

The media fails to report that we saw a political movement orchestrated by patriotically inclined people who desperately wanted to stop what they felt was the stealing of an Election. They felt that they were there to prevent an illegitimate placeholder from seizing power.

Whether you agree or disagree with what I am saying — you cannot twist a narrative and vilify Americans who felt that they were losing their Constitutional republic to the true definition of fascism.

Unconventional Warfare, meanwhile, refers to acts of insurgency, rebellion, terrorism, and other forms of irregular violence, exactly of the sort that’s plagued America since last summer.

The same sort of violence that has been ignored by the media. The same sort of violence that was being carried out to unseat not only democratic leaders but to also unseat President Trump.

The hyperbole and overreacting to what happened is evident as Nancy Pelosi t cranked up the crazy to ’11’ by making the news cycle focus on President Trump’s use of nukes before he leaves. She issued an all-out crazy statement that read

“Preventing an Unhinged President From Using the Nuclear Codes:

This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.

The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.

Interestingly, there was no mention of what response she got from General Milley!

Now I ask you what sounds more unhinged? Are we insinuating that Trump would nuke his own country to save face from a failed election? Is this truly being believed by unhinged left wing extremists as some outrageous conspiracy theory?

All we are witnessing now is a blatant spin that is more unhinged than any conspiracy theory spun by amateurs on a QAnon Reddit account.

When I watched the events unfolding what I was witnessing was an enormous amount of people in DC swarming the capitol — barricades were pushed by violent protesters but was the capitol building really stormed by protesters?

Arguable they were let in without a fight according to some observers. One video shows police actually waving some of the protestors through, Even the mainstream media observed that.

Former Congressman and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough went on a nearly 8-minute long rant against Capitol Hill rioters, police and the President during his “Morning Joe” show the morning of the protest.

He stated “Trump supporters came in and you opened the fucking doors for them.” This right here is an acknowledgement that there was no storming of the capitol building. It was suspiciously easy for all of the protesters to get inside.

The media also reported that other protesters had chemical weapons and pipe bombs. none of which ever appeared. The media however reported it and so it is a fact as they see it –and I am sure there is report after report that would invalidate my claims.

In the entrance hall, the “violent thugs” respected the velvet ropes and kept in orderly lines, took a few selfies with the cops, posed for the press and – when the main events were over – they were quietly allowed to leave.

When a curfew was finally announced in DC the majority of the protesters left.

Many top political figures are converging on a stunning consensus: President Donald Trump personally incited a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, Those assessments are coming not just from Trump’s political opponents, but also from members of his own party and even former members of his administration.

While Trump may have ratcheted up the resolve of his followers, do we remember him actually calling for violence? Did he truly incite his followers to attack Washington as the media claimed?

Trump’s statements leading up to and during the events of the Capitol building, did not include explicit calls for a violent attack on America’s democratic institutions.

The media believes that Trump is a master of stochastic terrorism –meaning that they put a lot of guess work into speculating on the true meaning of what he says. They tell the people that his words are full of dog whistles and innuendos that encourage violence.

They actually report their guess work as fact and so the outcome is believing that Trump literally told the swarms of people to storm the Capitol when he did no such thing.

The argument eventually devolves into the idea that Trump promotes conspiratorial fantasies that result in violent acts. This too is speculative.

More than that, it seems Trump’s “incitement” of the rioters means he may well be removed from office by enforcement of the 25th amendment, which would end not just this term, but make it illegal for him to run again in the future.

Facebook and Twitter have outright banned him from posting. The press and television pundits are openly accusing him of treason and sedition.

So, who has really benefited from the “chaos at the Capitol”? Because it surely isn’t Donald Trump.

For example, we need to total up what happened after th event:

Social media companies censored Donald Trump.

Democrats requested that Vice President Pence remove Trump from office.

Republicans were accused of “using chaos as pretext to drop electoral challenge”.

Speaker Pelosi and Chuck Schumer wish to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove a “mentally unstable” Trump from office. Pelosi saying that she is worried that a unstable President will use nuclear weapons on his own people.

In “progressive” political circles, this absurd series of events is being used as a catalyst to trigger the potential forceful removal of Donald Trump from office, and he has only days left to serve out his term – this is unprecedented.

The people are being fed this outrageousness and many are eating it up.

As always, the media is picking up and discarding important threads. The people who hate Trump are oblivious.

So, was the whole purpose of planting the seed that there was a blatantly rigged and fraudulent US election used to kick off riots, and eventually a ‘civil war’ to justify a coup by some faction and martial law — it appears like this is the case.

While Martial law has not been declared a takeover is being attempted and it is currently being used in the US by proponents of the New Normal.

Do we really believe some ad hoc rioters organized a coup — they did not succeed in unseating a sitting President.

This has all the hallmarks of a planned rollout.

Everything that has happened is a contradiction of what we can determine was the goal of the whole protest — the media has again interpreted it for the agenda of removing a sitting president.

It is the equivalent of a Reichstag Reset.

One should always be wary of any event which “accidentally” achieves the exact opposite of its stated or apparent intent.
