A few days ago, Senator Lindsey Graham called for the Julius Caesar-style assassination of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and stated, “Is there a Brutus in Russia?” The thought of a leader being raised to the status of divine hero in Caesar’s arena is a dangerous methodology because if we give any leader a godly or messianic title, we run the risk of becoming an Imperial cult, Monarchy, or government like the Roman Empire. We are at a point where we are more than happy and justified to think about killing a world leader only to have him be replaced by a puppet whose strings lead to the new global empire. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about EASY ON THE IDES.
There is a conspiracy theory that has really not been talked about because many people dismiss the very idea that the greatest lie of all is where we are now in time. Orwell had written that “He who controls the past controls the present and future.” However the quote goes even further, it continues to point out that all knowledge, meaning and value exists only in the collective mind of the party; reality is the new past, the new past is what was, hence “he who controls the past controls the future, and he who controls the present controls the past“.
What if one of the biggest conspiracies is the conspiracy to “create a past” that did not exist and then form the past that they have corrected or changed we see a plan that is introduced that seems familiar and with that familiarity those in power would take advantage of what the term sovereignty means.
This takes a great deal of erasing histories or not referring to them in order to further an agenda.
The fact remains no matter how much we see the left deny it. After backing a far-right coup in 2014, the US has fueled a proxy war in eastern Ukraine that has left 14,000 dead.
Now with that in mind Russia’s invasion is an illegal and catastrophic response.
However, saying it while pointing out the 2014 coup is somehow anathema or Russian propaganda.
This indicates that something parapolitcial is occurring, something that is mesmerizing the people who wish to hate more than listen to truth.
They tend to excise inconvenient history or call it Russian Propaganda.
“The United States aids Ukraine and her people,” Adam Schiff declared in January 2020, “so that we can fight Russia over there, and we don’t have to fight Russia here.”
Schiff made this statement during the opening of Donald Trump’s first impeachment trial, where the Democratic Party’s bid to ensure unimpeded US weapons sales to Ukraine was presented, and widely accepted, as a valiant defense of US democracy and national security.
Two years later, the US use of Ukraine to “fight Russia over there” has reached its logical end-game: illegally, murderously, and catastrophically, Russia has invaded Ukraine to end the fight.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a violation of the UN Charter. Without UN authorization, states are allowed to use armed force only in cases of self-defense or to prevent an imminent attack. Although the US has used Ukraine as a proxy in its fight against Russian-backed Ukrainian rebels in the Donbas, that conflict is still within Ukraine’s sovereign borders. Even if a case could be made that Russia has the right to defend besieged ethnic Russians, that argument is undercut by Russia’s decision to attack far deeper into Ukrainian territory. If defending the Donbas was Russia’s aim, then it could have pushed harder for an international peacekeeping force, or any number of non-military, diplomatic options.
Although Russia’s invasion cannot be excused, it also cannot be understood, and resolved, without acknowledging that the war in Ukraine did not start last month.
I find myself repeating this often but to no avail as somehow this event has somehow been lost on the American :stand by Ukraine” sentiment.
To point out this fact somehow makes you a spreader of Russian propaganda.
Putin has carried out a major escalation of a conflict that has raged for eight years, at the cost of more than 14,000 lives. It began with a US-backed, far-right-led 2014 coup that ousted Ukraine’s democratically elected government in Kiev. In its place came a regime chosen not by the Ukrainian people, but by Washington.
The coup government encouraged assaults on Ukraine’s Russian-speaking population, who took up arms to defend themselves with Moscow’s support. Rather than pressure its client in Kiev to implement a negotiated settlement under the 2015 Minsk Accords, the US has instead poured in weapons and military advisers to assist Ukraine’s fascist-infused armed forces in the proxy war that it helped initiate. While now hailing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as a national hero, the US has sided with far-right Ukrainian nationalists over the peace platform that Zelensky was elected on in 2019.
The policy of using Ukraine as cannon fodder has accompanied a bid to incorporate it into NATO. Compounding the dangers of a hostile military alliance on Russia’s borders, the US has also methodically dismantled the Cold War-era arms control treaties that limited the arsenals of the world’s two top nuclear powers.
Since 2007, Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly warned that US policies in Ukraine and other former Soviet states were crossing Russian red lines, and would force a Russian reaction.
After years of US-driven escalation, Putin’s warnings have been realized in the form of an illegal invasion that has placed the world in one of its most dangerous moments since the Second World War.
Those are the facts and now we are seeing the aftermath of bad diplomacy.
We keep hearing magic words about sovereignty and democracy but this is far from the truth.
Sovereignty would not be a self-governing power, but a familiar governing by the state. Even that state would govern only in the theory and supreme power would be held by a leadership that once again has a familiarity to it.
Some leaders and journalist would call it a New World Order for lack of a better way of expressing a globalist empire.
With countless amounts of people consistently perishing as a result of horrific conflicts throughout history, why haven’t more people denounced the very institutions that bring these armed atrocities into existence? As a society, most people are against war and violence, yet many take no issue at all to borders, militaries, prisons, leaders and poverty. Why are the deaths of those lost in war used as a muzzle to silence any critical examination of the factors that allowed those lives to be taken so easily?
The problem isn’t a lack of knowledge.
When it comes to war, many people think of it as an unfortunate and necessary evil that is bound to happen through natural means. I have noticed that on social media it empowers people to say some of the ugliest things that I wish I never had to be exposed to before I have my morning coffee.
It is aggravating how easy it is to be passionately hateful over things that they do not understand — and this is the catch. The bait is always dangling in front of the ignorant and death tolls and to them tend to be like touchdowns at the super bowl.
Hooray for our side but there really isn’t a side in this war. only a battle between governments who wish to use Ukrainians as targets.
There’s a moralistic ethos about certain wars that bring about an urgency to be as knowledgeable about the issue as possible – pick a national side and support it, without actually questioning the institutions that brought it about in the first place.
For some wars, we aren’t even meant to know or understand why it happened or is happening. We’re meant to read the news, trust the leader and hope our country wins, all whilst acknowledging that we aren’t experts in world affairs, thus, it’s likely too complex to concern ourselves with.
Oftentimes, this blind support of war is spearheaded with the grim and very legitimate argument that average, everyday people are dying as a consequence, thus it’s argued the quickest way to end a war is either for it to be fought to its conclusion or for a peace agreement to be achieved.
There are other ways to end wars — and the themes of Caesarism have crept into the conversation as we approach the Ides of March.
Caesarism is the revival of the doctrines and practices of the Roman Empire in its later and worst stages. It is, in short, an absolute and irresponsible despotism, which loves to display the prowess of its powers by abusing the trust of the people.
The month of March has always been the time when war campaigns and saber rattling happens between countries. We had a pretext of war, the rumors of war and now a full on exchange of warfare in Europe that continues to trigger imaginations of nuclear conflict.
History has also shown that war campaigns, terrorist attacks and many false flag appointments take place during this time of year. The Ides of March falls on the 15th, but the campaigns of war and turbulence begin 5 to 10 days before the date — and there are blood baths and heavy fighting 5 to 10 days after.
The US Congress adopted the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which authorized President Lyndon Johnson to dispatch ground forces to Vietnam on March 8, 1965.” This was the granddaddy of false flags and marked the public beginning of the bloody war in Vietnam.
“On 8 March 1965, 3,500 U.S. Marines were dispatched to South Vietnam marking the beginning of “America’s ground war”, which was well underway by the Ides of March.
“NATO’s war on Yugoslavia was launched on March 24, 1999. The NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, code-named by the US Operation, “Noble Anvil”, started on March 24, 1999 and lasted until June 10, 1999. The media will neglect to throw into the political campaign mania that it was Hillary Clinton who pushed the bill to bomb Kosovo.
The US-NATO led invasion of Iraq started on 20 March 2003 on the pretext that Iraq possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).
The US-NATO Covert War on Syria was initiated on March 15, 2011.
Libya was bombed relentlessly by NATO warplanes starting on March 19, 2011 for a period of approximately seven months. Once again, the blame falls on Hillary Clinton who created this disaster.
In March of 2013, the United States threatened war with Iran and then North Korea entered “state of war” with South Korea.
In the same week that Russian forces entered Ukraine, the United States launched airstrikes in Somalia, Saudi Arabia bombed Yemen, and Israel struck Syria and Palestinians in Gaza.
And yet the alchemical spell of people standing by Ukraine and ignoring other wars stands as proof the psychological operations are at play and a memeirizing spell has been cast over the people of the United States.
The Ides of March are coming and who knows what this will mean for the building and failure of empires. In these moments are the most bloodiest times — if not for Ukraine, other parts of the world.
The war in Ukraine did not begin with the Russian incursion. There are a series of spells that were cast for this war, each one important to understanding what is happening today.
Every war must end at some point and diplomacy must restart. Rather than allow this war to escalate and for positions to harden too quickly, it is important for the guns to go silent and the discussions of peace to recommence.
Heedless of the consequences, or perhaps welcoming them, America’s Cold Warriors and their media platforms have recently escalated their rhetoric against Russia.
This after the Russian incursion of Ukraine on February 24th. 2022.
Timing is everything— the numbers and the months all seem to fit and the astrological moment is also a factor when planning wars.
The war rhetoric has especially been ramped up in the first week of March. The terrifying part is that heated war speak and escalation are reaching a fever pitch as we see the heavenly return and conjunction of Pluto and Mars which begin those deadly days of the Ides of March.
Anyone who has lived through or studied the Cold War will recognize the ominous echoes of its most dangerous periods.
The 40-year Cold War often flirted with hot war, and that, too, seems to be on the agenda. Words, as Russians say, are also deeds. They have consequences, especially when uttered by people of standing in influential outlets.
A few days ago Sen. Lindsey Graham called for the Julius Caesar-style assassination of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Words that fed into the Ides of March themes.
“Is there a Brutus in Russia? Is there a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg in the Russian military?” Graham tweeted on March 4.
Graham was referring to Brutus, a historical figure who assassinated Julius Caesar, and Claus von Stauffenberg, an army officer who tried and failed to kill Adolf Hitler.
“The only way this ends is for somebody in Russia to take this guy out. You would be doing your country — and the world — a great service,” Graham tweeted.
In a separate tweet in the same Twitter chain on March 4, Graham said “the only people who can fix this are the Russian people,” referencing his calls for Putin’s assassination.
In the year 44 B.C.E., when Caesar was expected to declare himself the first emperor of Rome, he was assassinated by the Roman Senate, an event that precipitated the Roman Civil War.
Caesar had known that many wished him dead and a soothsayer allegedly warned him that harm would come to him before the Ides of March. On 15 March, Caesar reportedly passed the soothsayer joking, “The Ides of March have come,” but was met with the ominous reply, “Aye, Caesar, but not gone.”
This moment has been immortalized by William Shakespeare in his play, Julius Caesar. It is from Shakespeare that we have the famous warning given by the soothsayer: “Beware the Ides of March.”
Caesar’s murder failed to bring back the Republic, but triggered the start of the Roman Empire under his adopted heir, Octavian also known as Augustus.
Before the assassination, the Ides of March was best known as a festival. The celebration of the Lupercalia was a time for feasting and drinking marked the festival of Roman deity Anna Perenna.
Lupercalia was a bloody, violent and sexually-charged celebration awash with animal sacrifice, random matchmaking and coupling in the hopes of warding off evil spirits and infertility.
It was also traditionally the time to settle debts – Julius Caesar certainly paid his.
Lupercalia also happens to be the same time we celebrate Valentines day. A time for lovers, but it is also the day of remembrance for St. Valentine who was assassinated by beheading On February 14, around the year 270 A.D
The dark subject of assassination has also plagued Ukrainian resident Volodymyr Zelensky as it gas been reported that he has survived at least three assassination attempts from Russia-backed agents in the past week, The Times of London reported.
The Times reported that the reported attempts were carried out by mercenaries with the Wagner Group as well as Chechen special forces working under Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of Russia’s Chechen Republic and close ally of President Vladimir Putin. The Wagner Group is a private army owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, another ally of Putin.
Zelensky previously warned that “enemy sabotage groups” were active in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv and that he was their “number one target.”
There are ways to set a course of fiction, or even approximation by what can be learned from the past. A lot of it is guesswork, but I am sure no one has really thought much about a conspiracy of Caesarism happening in our country today.
The Americans have been known to speak about the leaders they want, and when they do they sometimes sound as if they are wanting a leader that is a kin to a Monarch that uses the political arena as a tool to create an apotheosis.
In our lives, we have been programmed to believe that there are certain things that you do not question. Social engineering has coerced us into respecting and deifying politics, religion, and science. It all has the danger of becoming an apotheosis meaning a model of excellence or divine perfection almost to the point of Godhood.
This is why the thought of a leader being raised to a hero or a God in Caesar’s arena is a dangerous methodology, because if we give any leader a title of divine, or Godly, or even messianic, we run the risk of becoming an Imperial cult, a Monarchy or government like the Roman Empire.
We are at a point where we are more than happy to think about assassinating a world leader only to have him be replaced by a puppet whose strings lead to the new global empire.
Put people in a place where they feel they are losing a grip on their personal freedom and watch them as their minds unravel and every programmed fear is exposed and every frayed nerve is left exposed, raw and ready to snap. When the nerves snap and the mind is open, what suggestion will enter in? What can possess it?
What course will the mind take? We are having those questions answered every time we see the mainstream narrative reinforce the forecasted doom on the horizon. When times become hopeless and the tragedies pile up and the morgues are full to capacity, the American people, maybe even the world will want a Savior or a Caesar.
What of Caesarism? Why should we guard against it? Some have said that they need to be aware of their leader’s direction and whether or not he is favored by the God of the people.
There are many people who see the lifestyle of living in a divinely inspired empire as a tranquil experience. The truth is that in this future empire if you are not enslaved for the greater good, you are a nobody doing nothing.
