Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about THE WAR OF 24.
Now that Christmas is over many people have found time to bask in the afterglow, while others are thinking about what is ahead in 2024. Since it is an election year, many are concerned that there will be widespread violence, and election meddling that will include political weaponization of thoughts and speech.
There has been this underlying feeling that a civil war is looming and Hollywood is contributing to the feeling with movies like Leave the World Behind and the trailer for A24’s “Civil War.”
The furious response to the film’s trailer has been causing a civil war. In these deeply divided times, a film teaser can trigger all sorts of speculation about civil upheaval and predictive programming.
“Civil War” is going to be in theatres just in time for the 2024 presidential election.
Do we need the simulation before the real thing?
Hollywood seems to think so.’
Will life imitate art with ‘Civil War’?
The furious response to the film’s trailer isn’t difficult to understand. We’re living in deeply divided times when even a film teaser can spark a war of words.
Yes, there is a “divide.” A great divide. A chasm. A schism. A gulf. An abyss. A gaping, yawning, unbridgeable fissure. A Grand Canyon-sized fault in the foundation of society. A rupture in the very fabric of reality.
But is it so bad that we will be seeing a civil war in 2024?
The War of 24 has a bit of a ring to it, doesn’t it?
The conspiracy theory blogs are now reporting that a “Civil War” is coming just in time for the 2024 presidential election.
With all of the shooting, looting, and mayhem that you would expect there is one particular part of the trailer where Jesse Plemons, decked out in military garb — holds a family at gunpoint.
The father says “Please don’t shoot I am an American!”
“What kind of American are you?”
The far-left website Vice pounced and seized on select comments, suggesting a new alt-right-style conspiracy in the works without solid evidence beyond a few posts on X.
They of course mocked any speculation that this movie is just a movie and that those who read into it certainly have mental instabilities.
‘But that is the key phrase — Mental Instabilities — brought on by a massive attempt at mind control–as every story, policy, and move by the government is there to give you a head trip.
The other euphemism – is not appropriate for the radio.
A Mind Fuck.
No one wants to hear that they have been part of a huge Psy-op where the powerful are becoming more resourceful and are learning more about how your mind reacts to manipulation.
How it becomes exhausting to be manipulated so much that this past year has become hazy to the average American.
That is because we are all becoming well acquainted with the Censorship Industrial complex. They have waged a silent war on reality. That is they are waiting in the shadows to counter what they cite as misinformation, disinformation and conspiracy theory.
The peasants are not allowed to question or have grievances against their leaders.
It is becoming obvious that we no longer have elected officials to work for the people — but to reign over us like tyrannical kings.
Over the past year, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government has released several reports detailing how the government is harassing and intimidating citizens to shut down undesirable viewpoints using misinformation and propaganda to drive false narratives and censoring protected speech using third parties
November 30, 2023, The House Judiciary Committee held another hearing on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. Investigative journalist Michael Shellenberger testified and shared evidence about the existence of a group called the Cyber Threat Intelligence League (CTIL), which consists of military contractors that are censoring Americans and using sophisticated psychological operations against us.
The CTIL was founded by a group of former Israeli and British intelligence agents who initially volunteered their cybersecurity services FOR FREE to multibillion-dollar hospital and healthcare organizations in the U.S.
CTIL also offers physical security and “cognitive” security, which are volunteered by U.S. and British military contractors
The CTIL’s plan to control the information landscape also includes using debanking as financial leverage, pressuring social media platforms to change their terms of service to facilitate censorship and de-platforming under the guise of “terms of service violations,” and more.
In related news, Wired magazine recently reported on leaked documents that verify the existence of a “secretive government program” that allows law enforcement to access trillions of phone records of Americans without a warrant.
In a recent letter to the Department of Justice, U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden challenged the legality of the program, which has been up and running for more than a decade. According to Wired:22
“ a surveillance program now known as Data Analytical Services (DAS) has for more than a decade allowed federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to mine the details of Americans’ calls, analyzing the phone records of countless people who are not suspected of any crime, including victims.
Using a technique known as chain analysis, the program targets not only those in direct phone contact with a criminal suspect but anyone with whom those individuals have been in contact as well.”
DAS started as a program called Hemisphere, run by the White House in coordination with AT&T. It was renamed DAS in 2013. It captures phone calls made using the AT&T infrastructure on behalf of U.S. law enforcement agencies, including local police, sheriff’s departments, U.S. customs, and postal inspectors.
The data includes identifying information such as the names of the caller and recipient, their phone numbers, dates, and times of calls, spanning at least 10 years or more into the past. Together, these data can be used to determine the exact locations of people, “a practice deemed unconstitutional without a warrant in 2018.
Wyden states, “The scale of the data available to and routinely searched for the benefit of law enforcement under the Hemisphere Project is stunning in its scope.” Moreover, it’s not under congressional oversight, and because it’s run out of the White House, it’s exempt from privacy impact assessment rules and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
Protections afforded by the Electronic Communications Privacy Act are also circumvented because AT&T’s call record collection occurs along a telecommunications “backbone.”
Controlling the dialogue and shutting down communication is all a part of controlling the zeitgeist in the middle of a war — it is also imperative that there be a controlling of the narrative as well,
There will come a time when you will not be able to tell the bad guys from the good guys.
What we are witnessing is authoritarianism – even though it looks different than you were taught to expect.
We are seeing so-called leaders so inebriated by their sense of righteousness and superiority that they view dissent as an evil too dangerous to allow.
I am sure that many of you have been cornered about what you believe to be true — and after an exhausting argument you hear the words “Do your Own Research.”
Well, a few scientists have gotten together and declared that “Doing your own research leads to believing in conspiracy theories.
A study published on Wednesday in Nature has found that using online search engines to vet conspiracies can increase the chance that someone will believe it. The researchers point to a known problem in search called “data voids.”
Sometimes, there’s not a lot of high-quality information to counter misleading headlines or surrounding fringe theories.
Conventional wisdom holds that researching the veracity of a story is healthy and needed to make a balanced argument — it now seems to be discouraged by the science community — of course, they don’t want you to learn the truths about so-called Climate Change or even the danger of being dosed with a vaccine every time you hear a sneeze.
They urge that more resources need to be pumped into fact-checking organizations so they can at least start to fill the data void that exists.
Meanwhile, the fact-checking resources are doubling up on trying to debunk all kinds of information that has been troublesome for the authoritarian administration and for the globalist infiltration.
Chirag Shah, a professor of information science at the University of Washington has stated “Do your research” are probably the worst words you can say to someone who wants to get to the truth.
“First we need to have that awareness of ‘Just because you’re doing your research, that doesn’t mean that’s enough.’ The more awareness people have, the more chance we have of having people think twice about the information they’re reading,” said Shah.
So now even though there is information supporting your hypothesis these scientists say that you should not trust it — so there in the question lies — who do you trust then?
Truth is just a point of view — and no matter how much an opinion is wrapped up in emotional outrage — I guess it should not be researched — why bother say the scientists?
This sets a dangerous precedent.
What is occurring is a sort of double whammy. Block (censor) these alternative news items from the approved news conveyors and it is thus marked and if it shows up elsewhere it is immediately considered unreliable, conspiracy material, and untrustworthy—misinformation.
With every passing day, we’re being moved further down the road towards a totalitarian society characterized by government censorship, violence, corruption, hypocrisy and intolerance, all packaged for our supposed benefit in the Orwellian doublespeak of national security, tolerance and so-called “government speech.”
Little by little, Americans are being conditioned to accept routine incursions on their freedoms.
This is how oppression becomes systemic, what is referred to as creeping normality, or a death by a thousand cuts.
It’s a concept invoked by Pulitzer Prize-winning scientist Jared Diamond to describe how major changes if implemented slowly in small stages over time, can be accepted as normal without the shock and resistance that might greet a sudden upheaval.
It is the old story of the Frog in a pot that is slowly warmed in water until he is boiled.
This is how tyranny rises and freedom falls: with a thousand cuts, each one justified or ignored or shrugged over as inconsequential enough by itself to bother, but they add up.
Each cut, each attempt to undermine our freedoms, each loss of some critical right—to think freely, to assemble, to speak without fear of being shamed or censored, to raise our children as we see fit, to worship or not worship as our conscience dictates, to eat what we want and love who we want, to live as we want—they add up to an immeasurable failure on the part of every one of us to stop the descent down that slippery slope.
The horrendous damage is obvious. Considering the volatility of the world today, information is vitally important. And when a silent enemy is created and released on the public, the only way to control its state-defined “do or else ” policies is to acquire information about it—unfortunately only information the state supplies and sanctions.
Any information that is contrary to the state approved information must be rendered impotent through censorship, degradation of the source, ridicule, labeling as conspiracy material or labeled as misinformation. The sheep eat this up, for some odd reason we are still trying to figure out. To the rest of us this state permitted drivel is clearly the actual misinformation.
People seem to have a psychological compulsion these days to enable these authority figures and systems government, law makers, to “do the wrong thing.” They enable by handing over to these entities the responsibility of filtering through news to determine what they should and shouldn’t be exposed to.
I am astonished how this is even entertained by anyone — as it is oppression, and leads to Orwellian Newspeak.
If we are receiving false information left and right, then it stands to reason that nothing we are receiving is the least bit reliable. What of worldwide food shortages are leading us into famine of a magnitude the world has never seen?
What if a civil war is already in the making and Americans suspect that something like a Movie Trailer is going to turn a mirror on how ugly and divided we have become as a nation?
Don’t we all feel like we are prepared for the War of 24?
What do we know of all of this? We could be being fed radically false information, and I suspect we are.
But don’t expect it to come from what the media call conspiracy theorists — the mainstream media spins their own conspiracy theories and used trigger words and incidents to get a reaction from those who are awaiting the end of the world.
Those who are religious in some sense are waiting for the Second Coming or whatever end-of-time thing their religion believes because all the signs are there.
Those who are fanatically green are waiting for the world to implode from carbon emissions and climate change because all the signs are there.
Those who are financially absorbed are waiting for the end of money as we know it and, therefore, the whole purpose of living. Those who suspect that viruses and/or their antidotes are killing us all off are locked in their masks and misery.
Those who think an asteroid is coming to nuclear war or AI human genocide or aliens engaging in human bloodbaths… well, there are all sorts of variations on the theme.
The signs are all there, and we have every reason to suspect that one of them is going to take us in the end.
We should at least be able to talk about it — but fact-checkers worry that if we are seeing sins the world will end it will reflect badly on President Biden’s popularity — so that answer immediately would be to blame it on Trump.
That is the true story –at least that is what your Fact Checker tells you.
A whole lot of people are spinning conspiracy yarns.. and they demonize other conspiracy theories that counter the ones they make up.
They’re all sitting in their little boxes of righteousness, waiting for the end with their ultimate “I told you so.” Being fatalistically resigned to human annihilation–and wanting so badly to control the narrative.
One by one, opposing demographics are being brainwashed and divided which will eventually lead us into aligning with The Powers That Be and going full-fascist, almost as if the whole global ideological system were going totalitarian, and what it needed to do was whip the masses into a mindless, hate-drunk, frenzy of zealotry, and pit us all against each other, and then switch the sides and do it again, over and over, until we don’t trust anyone or anything, and we literally can’t even think.
The Powers That Be will be happy to do our thinking for us. They are getting rather good at that, and we are getting rather good at letting them.
