Most Americans do not realize that we are in the midst of the worst global food crisis in modern history. As the world’s food supplies get even tighter, we will eventually see severe famines all over the planet. Does anyone have a sense of survival anymore? Have we lost the will to take care of ourselves and our families? We are entering into one of the most pivotal times in our existence as war, weather changes, migration, and disease are on the increase. It is the end game – only if you allow it to be. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with preparedness consultant, Joe Rieck about MEGIDDO – THE INCREDIBLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING PREPARED.



We live in extraordinary times – possibly more extraordinary than we realize. How many of those living even fifty years ago imagined that today we might be able to carry in the palm of our hand a device that can access most of human knowledge? Or quantum computers with almost infinite and instantaneous computing capacity, which are now being designed. We can now even peer at the birth of the universe.

We are now hearing of remarkable breakthroughs with chip technology aimed at helping people regain their motor skills.

Everything is happening so quickly and as we advance our machines and technology we are watching miracles happen every day.

We owe this to human intelligence, which is sometimes ridiculed but is an extraordinary evolutionary development nonetheless. More specifically, we owe our superpowers to human technology, which is a product of human intelligence, and which further expands the production of human intelligence with new tools, even including the ability to augment human intelligence with artificial intelligence.

However, this same artificial intelligence co-mingling with things like nuclear missiles and drones are now changing the way we fight wars. It is making the task of wiping out the population a lot easier and with cruel plausible deniability.

When three U.S. troops were killed in Jordan, the cry came up to Joe Biden about his retaliatory response. But the suggestions were heard loudly over what the President should do.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham who has by now made himself a character of a Warhawk lunatic stated that we need to hit Iran and hit them hard.

Ever wonder if Graham wasn’t a senator he would be a mass murderer? There was even talk of a low-yield nuclear retaliation.

It seems like whenever a war event happens the words “nuclear” are no longer the last resort — they are the first things recommended.

I think there are many reasons this is so. It can be seen as a psy-op — or these mad politicians want to make good on population reduction.

Believe it or not I have been thinking about some of the topics that were missed opportunities during the deep freeze the country was in. Usually, you just move on and try to keep up to date with real time news items and the latest paranormal and parapolitical interests.

But there was one particular event that happened during the freeze that I talked about with the subscribers because it was certainly disconcerting.

On January 13th there was a NOTAM or a Notice to Airmen to stay clear of the Martial Islands. This notice will be lifted today but what its significance sent shockwaves across social media.

This was the warning:

A Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) has been issued for Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, warning of a severe radiation hazard. The airspace north of the airport’s runway should be avoided at all costs, as it poses significant risks to life. In order to mitigate these dangers, all flights are directed to utilize southern approach and departure routes instead. This information has been provided by the International Civil Aviation Organization.

A Radiation danger?

Could it be that we were not being told of low yield nuclear missile strike or were we testing nuclear bombs again in preparation for a major conflict ahead.

The test or whatever it was sent into the air the radioactive isotope plutonium-239. Much of it going into the pacific–and some of it breaking down and being taken up into the atmosphere and showing up in the rainwater. Keep in mind that the ocean dilutes some of the nuclear waste but it decays with a half-life of 24,100 years.

Just days after the notice was issued, Powerful waves, driven by offshore storm surges, hit an important US military installation in the Marshall Islands , causing damage and resulting in the evacuation of all “non-mission personnel” from the island.

The US Army in a statement said that at approximately 9pm on January 20, “a series of weather-induced waves hit Roi-Namur which caused significant flooding in the northern portions of the island”.

A video circulating from Roi-Namur, an island at the northern end of Kwajalein Atoll, shows an approximately one-meter 3wave hitting the Army’s dining hall, breaking down doors, knocking people down and washing them from outside into the facility.

Roi-Namur houses the US Army’s most sophisticated missiles and space monitoring equipment as part of the Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Test Site.

Kwajalein Island is the missile testing range headquarters and is located about 40 miles to the south at the other end of the atoll.

Someone had sent me a theory about how we may be testing or someone is testing what are called Tsunami bombs.

These nuclear torpedo drones are designed to trigger a radioactive tsunami-like ocean swell that destroys coastal cities and renders them uninhabitable, potentially resulting in large-scale displacement and millions of deaths.

It was reported that Russia has successfully tested one of these weapons– and perhaps this is what is happening in the Martial Islands.

With everything else going on in the world–I would say that there needs to be a warning sent out to people that preparedness is not something set aside for tin foil hat conspiracy theorists — but for everyone that is aware of the constant egging on of what can only be seen as massive war– not just a world war, but a localized hybrid war meant to keep the people in constant lock down.

Two years ago the Biden administration sent to Congress a revised version of its classified National Defense Strategy. The new version removed the longstanding doctrine of “no first use” of nuclear weapons.

So much for the pitch he gave as being a stable peace loving President — this of course has brought is even closer to a nuclear exchange.

More recently, Sergei Karaganov, head of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, a non-governmental Russian think tank, argued that perhaps Russia should use a low-yield tactical nuclear weapon to convince NATO to back off and stop threatening Russia’s security.

What drives human society to engage in such reckless behavior? The answer to this question is at once familiar to any student of human nature, human society and human history, and yet equally perplexing given the prospect of potential obliteration or mutually assure destruction.

How does this come about? The answer is quite simple and well-known, although only the most imaginative science fiction writers have even scratched the surface of its potential consequences.

On some level, most people can feel what is coming. That is why sales of emergency food are at record levels, shows about survival are among the most popular on television, and Mark Zuckerberg is building a “self-sustaining doomsday bunker” in Hawaii. Millions of us realize that we are on the brink of an extremely chaotic chapter in human history. Of course the past several years have already been pretty wild— but now we have moved it to a new level — it has gone beyond ten — we have now amped up to eleven.

A few years ago, “World War III” wasn’t even on the horizon, but now conflicts are erupting all over the planet and the mainstream media is using apocalyptic language to describe what we are facing.

I find this interesting as when war events happened 30 years ago, the media would not even use words, like apocalyptic, or Armageddon, or biblical — these are of course to add effect — but shouldn’t we be paying attention to the magic words — and that those who give us the news and those who push us closer to annihilation are saying to prepare now?

i always hear form people who say “There is nothing I can do about what is happening so why should I care?”

Well, there is something you can do –always have your house in order so that when the time comes you won’t have to suffer from starvation, lack of water, and amenities needed to get through a major catastrophic event.

An article posted on Yahoo News entitled “As war creeps closer to Armageddon, the end of days doesn’t seem so far away”… was something that set off a major alarm in my mind It reads:

“From Megiddo’s hilltop, there is a great view of the West Bank, no more than two miles away.

To the north, the rockets of Hezbollah – in total about 160,000 of them – are pointed in this direction while in the south, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are fighting raging gun battles with Hamas in a war that’s almost four months long.

Israel is on edge. Standing in Megiddo, right in the middle of the country and now home to a vast archaeological site, there is a sense of foreboding that pervades the region.

I saw the word Megiddo and wondered out loud why this would even be mentioned on secular website.

Sometimes, Christian upbringing can trigger a memory of what we are told to look for in the final days of the dispensation.

When Israel moves into southern Lebanon to push Hezbollah north of the Litani River, things will get really crazy in the Middle East. And it is being reported that IDF units in the north have been engaging in “rigorous training” in preparation for the approaching confrontation…

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) engaged in rigorous training in the northern reserve paratrooper brigade to boost readiness along the northern border.

The exercises, part of ongoing efforts to enhance operational preparedness, involved the Northern Parachute Brigade (226), a crucial unit within the ‘Hempetz’ (146) formation.

Soldiers faced challenging winter conditions, including rain and fog, as they practiced tactics for in densely populated areas. The training covered various units, from smaller squads to larger battalion teams, integrating different forces like tanks, infantry, engineering, and artillery.

On the other side of the globe, the Chinese have stepped up their “campaign of intimidation” against Taiwan…

The People’s Republic has increased its campaign of intimidation in the weeks after this month’s presidential elections, which saw the election of pro-US Lai Ching-te.

Beijing has sent spy balloons into Taiwanese airspace almost daily both before and right after the vote in a move geopolitical analysts suggest is an attempt to weaken calls for the island’s independence.

War is going to cause so much death and destruction over the next few years. And it will make our rapidly growing global food crisis even worse. According to the UN, we are now facing a “perfect storm” which has created “a hunger crisis of unprecedented proportions.”

Most Americans don’t realize this, but we are in the midst of the worst global food crisis in modern history right now.

And according to the EU, the number of people around the world dealing with acute food insecurity in 2023 jumped 10 percent higher than 2022’s record level.

Of course this is just the beginning. As global food supplies get even tighter, we will eventually see severe famines all over the planet.

During the past few years, the pestilences that have spread like wildfire around the world have also been a major theme.

The World Health Organization has even created a placeholder disease in order to motivate people to be chipped for contact tracing — how many biometric chips and vaccines do we need in our bodies to satisfy these madmen who are unelected and yet we do as they say?

Does anyone have a sense of survival anymore — have we lost the will to take care of ourselves and our families?

You may say that God is in control — but God gives us opportunities — you if you let go of your own life and wander aimlessly without a plan God can only show you so many things before he decides to move on.

It is like the parable of the drowning man.

A devout Christian man is sitting on the roof if his house. He is stranded because of rising flood waters. Someone comes by in a canoe saying — we will help you down and rescue you.

The man says — oh no things are fine God is in control.

Still the waters rise and the man is forced to climb the chimney to avoid drowning.

A Man in a motor boat passes by and says — I will help you and get you to a dry area where you can be safe.

Still the guy on the roof says “God will see me through.”

After a while, the levee breaks, and the flood rushes over the house until only the man’s head is above the water. A helicopter descends out of the clouds, and a state trooper calls down to him through a megaphone.

“Grab the ladder, you idiot This is your last chance.”

In his final breath, the man yells back– The Lord will deliver me.

Of course, the man drowns.

So this pious man goes to heaven. After a while, he gets an interview with God, and he asks the Almighty, “Lord, I have unwavering faith in you. Why didn’t you deliver me from that flood?”

God shakes his head. “What did you want from me? I sent you two boats and a helicopter.”

Yes this story is told a lot from the pulpit but it is certainly a story that is effective in demonstrating that we should be prepared and ready for what is coming –and that we are given opportunities to prepare when things get unbearable and the unthinkable happens.

The past few years have been a time of great natural disasters.

It is being reported that the number of billion-dollar natural disasters in 2023 was the highest ever recorded.

Needless to say, what we have experienced so far is just a preview of the several scripts that are waiting to be executed by the elite — and of course the results of how they mess with mother nature and even mock God.

Much bigger and much more destructive natural disasters are on the way. This is not some half-baked prophecy — we live on a violent planet — that seems to be more and more violent lately.

We are in an active sun cycle where we run the risk of devastating Coronal Mass Ejections. The solar system is pushing the magnetic field with gamma ray bursts –and our continued experiments with the HAARP array and the Chinese SURA arrays can cause violent weather and seismic activity.

We are about to enter one of the most pivotal times in all of human history. And so many of us can feel that disaster is almost upon us.

I would encourage you to get prepared while you still can, because this is not a game.

It is the end game — only if you allow it to be. One thing that the elite don’t count on is a population that has resilience.

Evolution, in turn, is born of competition, and more specifically the competition between life forms. This is where the strong and prepared among us survive.

We must also prepare for the refugee experience where we may be told that we cannot return to our homes or our communities.

This happens all the time in third-world countries.

We need a strategy, a Plan B — and above all we are told that we need to use wisdom — and intelligence. That is the biggest gift we have been given by God.

It has often been noted that humans are relatively helpless creatures, except for their brains. Our brain confers enough of an advantage to overcome these disadvantages, at least thus far in our evolution.

This is why we have been lucky enough to achieve the last few million years of our existence, and especially in the last ten thousand.

There is where hope lies — no matter what horrible catastrophe befalls us there are still those who have hope — who thrive. But they are the ones that heeded the warnings and prepared.

Since the turn of the 20th century and now the 21st century we have experienced the use of Chemical weapons, aircraft, hypersonic missiles, electronic weapons, artificial intelligence, and of course, nuclear weapons. We know that chemical weapons have been banned by international treaty and that no one has used nuclear weapons in warfare since 1945.

But chemical weapons have been used despite the ban, we have seen Gain of function exercises exposing people to lethal pathogens.

Nuclear weapons still exist in great quantities, with delivery systems capable of destroying most or all of humanity. It is a Sword of Damocles over the human race, with other swords under development.

Will we succeed in avoiding our own destruction? For how long? Will no one in the next 10 years trigger a nuclear war? The next 100? 1000? 10,000? No one at all?

Has there ever been a weapon that has not been used? In the case of nuclear weapons, a single war between nuclear powers might be enough to finish us off.

Will the US/NATO use a nuclear weapon when it runs out of conventional weapons, to prevent a defeat in Ukraine? In eastern Asia? Will Russia be driven to use if nuclear weapons in order to avoid disappearance as a nation?

What about Iran, Hamas, or even Israel using their “Sampson Option.”

At the moment — there is a chance that one or more could be used to plunge us into World War three.

Armageddon is just a matter of time.

    Good topic, Clyde! When you’re in a winter storm and everything‘s knocked out, you gotta keep warm and you gotta drink some water and have extra food handy because you won’t be able to get any. People need to prepare, prepare for the worst never know what the world’s gonna throw at. You can’t count on the government or nobody else to help you out. It’s up to you and your family and friends work out. Everyone should have a bug out bag in the back of their truck with extra food and water and a way to purify water. Warm clothes, pair of boots a good sheath knife And a pair of Leatherman tools Sometimes you might not be able to call 911 for help or back up so it’s best to have a firearm know how to use it and be prepared. Take care life‘s too short every day above ground is a good day.

      Regarding not knowing when things get tough: I live in Maine. Nice, quiet and mostly non eventful. Late last October at 7pm, my wife and I were watching TV eating supper. Never in this God’s creation could we imagine that by 8pm the entire country would know what was happening in this town and I’m talking about the mass shootings two miles from me. The whole city and several others were on lockdown for about 20 hours. How does one prepare for the unexpected? You can’t in one sense but of on hand for basic survival. We are all very, very, vulnerable. Shortly, I will be ordering from Patriot Supply (this is not an add for the product). I like what I see. When the shit hits the fan we’re up to northern Maine – one of the safest states.
