We are more and more politically divided and ideologically extreme than we’ve ever been. At the same time, we’re losing our attachment to the traditional American values of God, family, and country. Furthermore, we are so fragmented in this country, that everyone has their own cause, their own victimization that they feel is the issue for the fight. Accumulating and consolidating overwhelming revolutionary power, stealthily, is a problem you must solve entirely on your own if you wish to successfully overthrow your tyrants, and be accepted internationally as a legitimate successor government. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about ORANGE REVOLUTION.
I was reading a commentary today about trust issues, regarding our government and more and more we keep hearing how things were better pre-911 than they are now.
Well, I don’t know about that — maybe if we go back to 1977, we could assume that with Star Wars in the theaters and new wave music, we were all excited for the spaced-out future.
We had problems then too — but we weren’t being persecuted for talking about them, satirizing them or even laughing about them with standup comedians and TV shows like All in the Family and the Jeffersons.
We’re more and more politically divided. We’re more ideologically extreme than we’ve ever been. At the same time, we’re losing our attachment to the traditional American values of God, family, and country.
But these are only pieces of a puzzle. To solve it, we need a sense of the composite image that we’re aiming for. And there is, in fact, a greater national affliction that runs through these partial explanations and connects them to a still wider range of current misfortunes: American society is losing its capacity to trust.
Rage is also a drug that we have somehow consumed and it appears to be misdirected at the fringe minority that the media tends to put a spotlight on to aggravate the social cohesion of the country.
According to poll after poll, we’re losing our trust in government, the economy, media, a slew of institutions, and one another.
A free country without trust cannot long survive as a free country. Trust undergirds our social contract and thwarts the authoritarian tendencies of government. Decreases in public trust, on the other hand, create opportunities for state intervention.
It’s when we can no longer enter into profitable relationships in good faith that the regulators, rule-makers, and enforcers come calling.
But when we are called Domestic terrorists, White supremacists, and Nationalist fascists — the name-calling gets under the thick skin that has worn thin and now that the security state has become the Gestapo for the Biden administration we have to wonder if our government has become illegitimate.
We’re not the middle east or South America, where fewer than 10 percent of the population believes that “most people can be trusted.”
But we’re sliding in the wrong direction. And the varied expressions of our low-trust crisis are loud and painful.
Americans now use politics to tell friends from enemies.
And we’re not just politically polarized. We’re becoming ideologically segregated.
As you can see the divide goes well beyond the strictly political. Mixed social networks are unbraiding, with liberals and conservatives not only seeking out their own kind but opting for a different set of preferred cultural products.
What, for example, is the obsession with cryptocurrency if not a declaration of distrust in our traditional monetary system? What about the rise in homeschooling—still up some 30 percent since 2019?
Or the growing anti-work movement, which preaches that the employer-employee relationship is a big swindle? And for those who do go to work, there’s mandatory Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) training, because you can’t be trusted to act like a decent human being. Nor are you to be trusted at the drug store, which is why the toothpaste you want is under lock and key.
For decades, American popular culture was predominantly liberal, and conservatives sampled it as individuals but lived outside it as a group. Today, there are left and right popular cultures. Whatever one may think of the new arrangement, it’s extended our polarization deep into our day-to-day experience. Conservatives and liberals tend to laugh at different comedians, watch different shows, and listen to different music.
There are even radio commercials that sell their products under the banner of not supporting liberal causes — which has become a major selling point for some products.
Bud Light used to be the number 1 beer in the United States until a transgender influencer endorsed it — causing stocks and sales to plummet and Kid Rock to obliterate a case of it with a powerful assault weapon.
When George Floyd was murdered in May 2020, a second layer of institutional deception was added to the first. As deadly riots tore through American cities, political leaders and media figures explained to us that we were witnessing a “mostly peaceful” demonstration for social justice.
After the riots in Portland — the city is still trying to recover.
But the riots may still break out at any time with all of the political upheaval.
We are dangerously close to a situation where ~ if the American people took to the streets in righteous indignation a mechanism for martial law could be quickly implemented and carried out.
Don’t think for one minute this President will not use it for political reasons.
Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub-programs that can be implemented. Garden Plot is a program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government.
FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.
The other night someone called my show saying that if there was going to be a revolution for freedom in this country it would be led by Donald Trump.
This statement was made days before he was indicted on 37 counts over his alleged handling of classified documents at his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort.
I was a little concerned that the person who called was thinking that one man could establish freedom — when no one can legislate it, or enforce it.
Freedom is something you have to want bad enough to fight for.
if you intend to have a revolution because you want relief from oppression, to gain political freedom, and to introduce democracy into your country, you would be wise to learn what is required to make your freedom convenient to the world’s contented spectators.
The statement that other countries hate your freedom is kind of stupid — because they don’t necessarily hate it — they think they have it too– and so your freedom can’t get in the way of theirs.
Their ideologies are what they only know– they can’t possibly compare their freedoms to ours unless they have experienced them firsthand. But if they see that their governments are interfering with their social cohesion, they usually rebel.
You see, your freedom is inconvenient to the rest of the world. The world has made its accommodations with our present administration, and any disruption of those arrangements will inconvenience the plans of your globalist neighbors, by disrupting their expectations.
It does not matter whether your oppressive government is seen as “good” or “bad” by other states, it is simply that they are accustomed to their present protocols of interaction, and any interruption of business-as-usual costs money and time and creates anxiety about the future.
So if you think that Donald Trump alone intends to overthrow your oppressive regime He must do so quickly to minimize the period of dislocation of your foreign relations.
And we know that this is not going to happen anytime soon.
Clearly, a quick and complete turnover of government can only occur if the rebellion has the overwhelming support of all sectors of your society with any amount of credible power or wealth.
But we are so fragmented in this country, that everyone has their own cause, their own victimization that they feel is the issue for the fight.
People all have their ideas of who the enemy is — and we are reluctant to look at ourselves because emotional opinions are now the truth.
That confuses the issue.
Accumulating and consolidating overwhelming revolutionary power, stealthily, is a problem you must solve entirely on your own if you wish to successfully overthrow your tyrants, and be accepted internationally as a legitimate successor government.
Some populations believe that their oppression is so onerous that they can no longer remain passive, and so they revolt without having made the necessary preparations for a quick and decisive take-over.
If they are unfortunate, their tyrants quickly isolate and eliminate them, extinguishing the revolt. If they are somewhat fortunate, they are able to carry on as guerrilla movements that shelter underground or hide in plain sight.
This is why so many people, have been used as examples during the January 6th, event — which actually shows that it really wasn’t an insurrection but a baited reaction to violence, and crowd hysteria.
You can be assured that the regimes they oppose will use all the powers of the state to eradicate them.
If we end up in a third-way scenario, this would be a worse-case situation.
Should an unprepared population break its discipline of submission with an open revolt that draws the heavy wrath of its regime down on them, and they get rescued by foreign intervention, then they have lost any possibility of ever being seen as having political legitimacy.
This is why we have to stop the division and all agree that something is wrong –and that wrong is far more important to fight against than are various causes we wish to push.
The idea of a population rising up solely on the basis of its own desire for political freedom, accepting material assistance from whoever delivers it during their time of crisis, and then after a successful revolution cordially thanking and dismissing its foreign helpers, and forming a fully independent and representative national government, is taken as impossible by general agreement.
Take a look at Ukraine — all of the help we have given them all of your taxpayer money going to a corrupt war — that can be said now to be tied up in bribes and scandals by the Bidens who are now seen as a crime family.
Someone in the end is going to get selfish –and when the needs are not met they will turn on us — and there will be others waiting to fill their needs — and this could easily create a blowback.
You see what most people think are revolutions are simply “humanitarian interventions” or “Democracy Checks” which arguably was the case for January 6th.
But the media has called it an insurrection which is a criminal move as is most revolutions or rebellions.
Using science fiction as an example, when Princess Leia in the movie, Star Wars, was captured by stormtroopers and brought to Darth Vader, he told her that she was part of the rebel alliance and a traitor. She was an enemy of the empire. But she was certainly seen as a freedom fighter against the empire’s technocracy.
She was a criminal sought after by the Empire.
In order for any revolution to take place — those behind it have to accept that they are committing a criminal act against a powerful oppressor.
That is a huge responsibility.
On December 16, 1773, off the Boston coast, irate American colonists, fed up with paying excessive tax rates and getting political abuse from their colonial masters in return, flooded the sea with 342 chests of British East India Company tea.
It was a glorious symbolic act of defiance. War ensued, and eventually the patriots, once in the extreme minority among the total colonial population, were vindicated.
The rallying cry of the revolutionary movement was “no taxation without representation,” meaning that the colonists were subjected to taxation to fuel the British Empire’s expensive adventures across the globe, but did not enjoy any real political representation in British Parliament for it.
Does modern America suffer from the same phenomenon?
The possibility of a government that somehow becomes even more draconian and repressive than what it is now is just unsettling — it’s enough of a threat to have everyday citizens wondering what resistance will look like.
If there is any resistance to what is happening,
We’ve all heard all of the talk about violent uprisings, and what they could do to an illegitimate government. These theories live on places like Facebook and Twitter, but also in barbershops and bars, text messages. I have heard talk shows that claim that 1776 is going to happen again and again and everyone talks tough about lock and load.
The events of January 6th, have now been turned into a cudgel as the tales grow taller about what happened on that day. It gave the Biden administration full court press to establish a warning about domestic terrorism and how the deep state has been weaponized to hunt down and jail people that were all but buying a newspaper across the street from the capital.
We are now seeing the arrest and persecution of a former President. His arrest obviously is politically motivated as he wishes to run again for President of The United States.
A 2014 study published via Cambridge University Press– gives a clue as to when democracy becomes illegitimate.
“When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organized interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favor policy change, they generally do not get it… average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence over US policy.”
In layman’s terms, the multinational Western technocratic state does not factor the peasants’ desires or values into its decision-making at all.
Yes — I say peasant– and the peasants for some reason are unaware just how insignificant they are.
Furthermore, the government considers at least a third of its own population “domestic terrorists” for non-crimes as petty as parents not wanting their kids exposed to transgender indoctrination in public schools.
But guess what?
They use money collected from those alleged domestic terrorists through taxes to politically persecute them, and frequently requests more to facilitate its wars abroad and the culture wars they foment at home.
Does that mean anything to you?
Journalists who expose government abuses such as the ones we talk about on my show, instead of being lauded as heroes for their good work, are targeted for political persecution by the state.
Freedom of the press is only free when it is approved by the debunked democracy.
Due process has been all but discarded as a relic of legacy America, in the before-times prior to the installment of the multinational technocracy.
None of this is an endorsement – not even a tacit one – of political violence if it can be avoided. Kinetic warfare with the multinational corporate state is inadvisable for many reasons, not least of which is that the government’s capabilities dwarf those of any insurgency.
Rather, this is an acknowledgment of reality: a strong case can be made that the United States government is illegitimate. What we do with this assessment is up for debate.
This is also a reminder of what responsibilities we have as Americans.
At what point do we say our government is illegitimate? Either we will have to admit it and heal it or someone outside of our borders will fix it and soon we will be learning Mandarin Chinese.
