Recently, Hillary Clinton was interviewed by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour where she called for a systemic deprogramming of Donald Trump’s MAGA “cult members.” Trump supporters are also being called mentally ill and are being censored, doxed, de-platformed, backlisted, or demonetized. This is extremely disturbing when we can see the call for “re-education” and “deprogramming” for a political group is straight out of the Chinese Communist Party playbook. These kinds of tactics all require forced conformity and if you don’t comply, then you will be punished. They want to make every American conform to one kind of ideology and one way of thinking. Whether you support the Orange Man or not isn’t the issue – it is your right to cognitive liberty that is at stake here. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about MIND CRIME – THE FINAL SUBMISSION.






There is a quote that is attributed to Voltaire that says:

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

Pretty noble, right?

But today — people can quote it, and some people actually believe it when they use it — but in the world we live in now — the right to have a different view or a politically controversial thought, and to share it out loud is no longer allowed and it appears that no one would be willing to defend anybody’s right to say it.

We’re experiencing an information total war, resulting in the blanket shutdown of any and all debate on each and every topic the government would prefer not to discuss. The cost to truth from this censorship carpet-bombing has been enormous. Lacking the refinement that comes from criticism and debate, the policies issued from this informational hellscape are brutal and barbaric.

This information total war has been largely successful. Regime critics have been swiftly censored, defamed, and marginalized. The result is that most of the population continues to believe that the criticisms of government policies and actions over the past several years were levied by a bunch of cranks whose objections were largely based on gut-level assumptions, political affiliation, or knee-jerk reactions.

Free thought and the freedom of expressing political beliefs are being stifled by clever propaganda or coercive persuasion.

Coercive persuasion is a term that replaces propaganda in a politically correct culture. It is so pervasive that the news media has learned how to perfect a manner of this brainwashing in order to move the public in thought and action.

The essential strategy used by those operating such programs of persuasion is to change views or ideologies to match their own, this is done over continuous periods of time.

Accordingly, techniques and news content are stage-managed and focus-group-driven.  The issues you care about — are issues that are constantly finding their way not only in news models — but in movie scripts, and that are also creeping into science fiction tropes that force us into accepting dangerous and counterintuitive thinking.

The cumulative toll we see is the vast audience who are everyday subjects of mind control. The effect is curious. Vast swaths of Americans take for truth an enormous amount of misinformation.

This is why it is called, Television Programming. The masses are programmed with news that is made, not news that is reported after the event.

News and programming have taken a turn towards, reporting stories that create panic, engender crisis, and create adversarial positions. News and network programming has become a form of activism — rather than administering information that the public has a right to know.

Panic-mongering uses fear, overstatement, misinformation and such to terrorize the audience. All media does it, and the majority of media is not objective.

It is to confuse and reprogram the audience into accepting the new normal, submitting to the globalist plans and to those who do not wish to participate– understand that you either join the open revolution or face oppression, silencing, canceling, and if Hillary Clinton had her way — a massive deprogramming of political dissidents — namely MAGA republicans.

Hillary Clinton sat down with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour for an interview where she actually called for a systemic deprogramming of Donald Trump’s MAGA “cult members.”

Clinton said Trump’s “negative, nasty form of politics” resonates with his supporters because they may not like migrants, and are homophobic, racist, and misogynistic.”

Clinton did say that Trump will be the Republican nominee for he 2024 election.

But that doesn’t explain how she expects MAGA Republicans to be deprogrammed.

These statements certainly have that sick and dark Orwellian flare to them.

Clinton said:

“It’s a classic tale of an authoritarian, populist who really has a grip on the emotional psychological needs and desires of a portion of the population.”

Furthermore, she states:

“And the base of the Republican party, for whatever combination of reasons — and it is emotional and psychological — sees in him someone who speaks for them. And they are determined that they will continue to vote for him, attend his rallies, wear his merchandise, because for whatever reason, he and his very negative, nasty form of politics resonates with them.”

“Maybe they don’t like migrants,” she suggested. “Maybe they don’t like gay people or black people or the woman who got the promotion at work they didn’t get. Whatever the reason. You know, Make America Great Again was a bid for nostalgia to return to a place where people couldn’t be in charge of their lives, feel empowered, say what they wanted, and insult whoever came in their way. and that was really attractive to a significant portion of the Republican base. So it is like a cult. And somebody has to break that momentum.”

“We’ve had very strong partisans in both parties in the past and we had very bitter battles over all kinds of things, gun control and climate change and the economy and taxes,” Clinton said. “But there wasn’t this little tail of extremism wagging the dog of the Republican party as it is today. Sadly, so many of those extremists, those MAGA extremists take their marching orders from Donald Trump, who has no credibility left by any measure. He’s only in it for himself. He’s now defending himself in civil actions, and criminal actions. And when do they break with him because at some point, maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members, but something needs to happen.”

Again — this is a chilling statement, “maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members, but something needs to happen.”

The question is what needs to happen?

I can’t believe that these statements get a pass — it is like I said the other night about the unthinkable.

This is the scenario where you would sound crazy if you said “I think they want to put people into boxcars and send them to deprogramming camps,”

No one would believe you — until someone like Hillary Clinton says that the deprogramming of people who don’t agree with her politically needs to be subjected to deprogramming techniques.

But she said it — and now we have to ask ourselves if we support the marginalization of a group of people that you may or may not agree with politically.

is this a belief shared by neoliberal followers of Hillary Clinton, Obama, or Biden?

Back in 2021 an attorney for PBS was caught on camera by Project Veritas saying the children of Trump supporters should be taken away from their parents and put in reeducation camps.

He was later fired.

Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post said on MSNBC, “There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogrammed.”

Journalist Katie Couric said on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, “The question is: how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump?”

Trump supporters are also being called mentally ill and are being censored, doxed, de-platformed, backlisted, or demonetized.

This is extremely disturbing when we can see that the call for “re-education” and “deprogramming” for Trump supporters is straight out of the Chinese communist party playbook.

These kinds of tactics all require forced conformity and if you don’t comply, then you will be punished. They want to make every American conform to one way of ideology and one way of thinking.

In the case of Communism, the CIA believed they had found a smoking gun in techniques used in Chinese and North Korean Communist jails and concentration camps against arrested Western missionaries and, later, American prisoners of war captured during the Korean War.

American psychiatrists and psychologists such as Robert Jay Lifton and Edgar Schein were asked to interview those who had been liberated from Communist jails and camps. Their conclusions were very cautious, as they noticed that in fact Chinese techniques had not converted many, and the majority of those who had signed declarations of allegiance to Communism had done so to escape torture or mistreatment in jail, and had not really been persuaded.

They were also criticized for their psychoanalytic approach and, in the case of Lifton, for a libertarian idea of human agency that later led him to support the anti-cult movement. However, they maintained that Chinese mental manipulation techniques either worked in a very limited number of cases, when they were accompanied by the use of mind-altering drugs and torture or did not work at all.

In the wake of the January 6th, event, Fox News ran a segment floating the false idea that Democrats, “big tech,” and the news media are pushing for “reeducation camps” or forms of “reprogramming.”

Needless to say the network was criticized for floating what was called a “baseless and dangerous conspiracy theory.”

And again Hillary Clinton gets a pass for her statements.

You don’t have to support MAGA or even like Trump to see that this type of talk is dangerous and there needs to be some sort of condemnation.

If anyone suggested a deprogramming for Democrats that support a gerontocracy — there would be a huge outcry.

But there is no excuse for this type of irresponsible talk — I mean she has the right to free speech, but she is talking from a place of authority — and has always goaded Donald Trump into going full-Hitler and staging a coup, or gratuitously mass-murdering the blacks, gays, Jews or somebody.

He hasn’t done any of those things — and yet he and his followers should be reprogrammed or deprogrammed.

The question is how do they expect to do this?

Transport all of the so-called election deniers by Box car to a reeducation camp?

Seriously, fascism, concentration or reeducation camos and deprogramming … these are , sensitive subjects. They’re not just convenient emotional buttons that you can press to whip folks into a frenzy of mindless paranoia and murderous hatred whenever you feel like demonizing some people you don’t agree with politically.

I am sure that there are many Democrats on the Hill who agree with Clinton’s radical idea of deprogramming MAGA supporters.

It all falls in line with the thought crime policing of the future, something that Orwell warned us about in his book,1984.

The technocratic mindset of agencies such as the DHS and Federal Bureau of Investigation that oversee federal, state, and local policing procedures seeks to short-circuit and quell dissent by identifying transgressive thought that deviates from an assumed normalcy, then interlinking it with perceived threats or violent actions against the state.

It is not beyond reason to point out that America is one serious terrorist attack or mass civil disturbance away from the implementation of policies to seriously limit or curtail the traffic of ideas, thoughts, and political ideologies.

The police state’s framework for suppressing information and opinion arguably threatens all forms of independent thought and appears poised to intensify–as the globalists make their moves for sustainability.

There has always been the conspiracy theory that the US plans for indoctrination in reeducation camps — but the theory has always been shut down –even though there have always been programs set aside for mass incarceration.

There are over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA should martial law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached.

These lists are part of citizen round-up plans that are code-named REX-84, Garden Pot and Main Core.

Main Core is the code name of an American governmental database that is believed to have been in existence since the 1980s. It is believed that Main Core is a federal database containing the personal and financial data of millions of United States citizens believed to be threats to national security. The data, which is believed to come from the NSA, FBI, CIA, and other sources, is collected and stored without warrants or court orders. The database’s name derives from the fact that it contains “copies of the ‘main core’ or essence of each item of intelligence information on Americans produced by the FBI and the other agencies of the U.S. intelligence community”.

The Main Core database is alleged to have originated with the Federal Emergency Management Agency in 1982, following Ronald Reagan’s Continuity of Operations plan outlined in the National Security Directive 69 and the National Security Decision Directive 55, entitled “Enduring National Leadership”, implemented on September 14, 1982.

There are more than eight million Americans listed in the database as possible threats, which the government may choose to track, question, or detain in a time of crisis or civil uprising.

Under the Garden Plot Directive, the president can employ armed federal troops to suppress insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful assemblies, and conspiracy if such acts deprive the people of their constitutional rights and the state civil authorities cannot or will not provide adequate protection.”

The President does not need Congress or the Constitution, “federal intervention in civil disturbances begins with the issuance of a presidential proclamation to the citizens engaged in the disturbance.” In other words, the President reads “the riot act” and “a controlled force” is sent in to “isolate the disturbance area.” The goal is to “isolate the people creating the disturbance from those who have not yet become actively involved.

During civil disturbance operations, “authorities must be prepared to detain large numbers of people”, forcing them into existing, though expanded “detention facilities.” Cautioning that “if there are more detainees than civil detention facilities can handle, civil authorities may ask the control forces to set up and operate temporary facilities.” Pending the approval of the Army Chief of Staff, the military can detain and jail citizens en masse.

For many years, a number of Americans have worried that the REX 84 program would be used against them and that all it would take is a signature from the president to allow martial law, and that guns would be confiscated and anyone who resists would be rounded up and put in these empty prison camps.

However, it needs to be said that while Americans were waiting for the day that they would be incarcerated in the FEMA camps and that there were guillotines and coffins awaited them – the truth is that all along the FEMA camps were originally being created for what can be called “Mass Exodus.”

The Rex 84 program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA.

But could they be used to detain and reprogram MAGA Republicans?

Of course they can — and this is why comments about deprogramming Americans that have the right to think what they want politically –sends an important message.

It sends a huge signal, that there are leaders who have considered this scenario and may wish to act upon it.

Garden Plot, Main Core, and REX-84 are in place for reasons beyond the initial declaration of Martial Law. They are merely parts of an even bigger declassified operation that may include urban warfare and the buzzing of black helicopters and drones at the borders or in several areas of concern.

It’s not paranoid to point out that the precedent being set could turn easily from innocuous to dark. I know that it is one thing to say something about deprogramming and later acting upon it –and the government as you can tell has many resources at their disposal to banish and reeducate people to accept a new form of government.

First and foremost, this censorship, cancel culture reprogramming mob has harmed the public because the suppression of dissenting views results in the creation and deployment of a `whole` host of truly awful policies. Certain of its omniscience the government repeatedly censors, defames and marginalizes those who raise objections to its policies. Contrary to the propaganda narrative used to justify its censorship, the arguments against various strands of government policies are based on sound reason, science, and data, and the opponents are often highly credentialed in the relevant field.

But Logic and forewarning seem to be foiling their schemes – The globalists are often hateful of those who foil their plans – and so now we have Hillary Clinton speaking of deprogramming the radical domestic terrorists that do not agree with her.

Through the pervasive action of this wide-ranging government censorship/propaganda effort, vast swathes of the American people have been and continue to be weaponized against their fellow Americans. The faith these people had in institutions has been perverted to serve the institutions, not the people.

By acting as the witting or unwitting dupes of this vast censorship/propaganda operation, the credibility of virtually every civic institution in the US has been eroded possibly to the point of no return.

The credibility of Hillary Clinton should be put into question at the mere suggestion of reprogramming Trump supporters.

Whether you support Trump or not isn’t the issue – it is your right to cognitive liberty that is at stake here.

    Tienanmen Square is now playing out in the US rather than the reverse, thanks to those of the like of spawn-of-hell, HRC. Truly those Gates are being opened BUT they shall not prevail {Mt. 16:18}.

    Political civil war has already commenced and will prove mortal to its instigators.

    I just looked that quote up, and it was attributed to Evelyn Beatrice Hall, 1906.
    The FBI tried to go after Catholics about two
    years ago, and fortunately it backfired.

    Just sayin’, the Convention of States wants to limit the term lifecycle of certain elected offices. I personally, however, have not heard anything about putting limits on the annual income level of said offices. Just sayin’!
