This midterm election has been a real eye-opener for those who have seen “business as usual” in the political arena. Blue Wave or Red Mirage — the system kept everyone in a passive-aggressive state and rewarded those who had the money to retain their power, no matter the cost. Furthermore, the Hegelian Dialectic is in full swing as evidenced by Americans accepting philosophies and ideas they first thought were deplorable. It’s a vicious cycle of problem-reaction-solution and most people fall for the deception. It is like a drug and America is addicted. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about MIDTERM REJECTION – 1/2 TRUTH + 1/2 TRUTH = FULL LIE.





Nobody has taught you in school that, throughout your entire life, behind the scenes, an organized plutocracy will be working to control the thoughts in your head using a highly sophisticated arsenal of psychological operations funneled into your mind via their near-total control of the media. Nobody warned you as a kid that if you ever really want to grow up, you’ll first have to extricate the vast network of lies which have been deliberately sewn into your consciousness since birth.

This is why Americans do not value their freedoms enough to fight for them.

Younger generations have now been manipulated on a mass scale by the same people who have been granted immense power and wealth by the existence of that status quo.

However, the responsibility of the older generations has not been greater.

It is our responsibility to share the information which counters the disinformation, doing our best to throw sand in the gears of the propaganda machine and show people the little gaps in the code of the matrix in the hope that some light sleeper might spot it and begin waking up from the dream.

We are told that throughout life we have experiences that are supposed to teach us valuable lessons. This Midterm election has been a real eye-opener for those who have seen business as usual in the political arena.

It has shown us that to invest any hope — and time — in waiting for the next election-result, and to encourage large masses to remain in such a passive state, is in effect the most pernicious form of mass deception. 

Either such goal is pursued intentionally or in ignorance, makes no difference in the outcome. 

People are angry. 

Blue wave or Red Mirage — the system kept everyone in a passive-aggressive state — and rewarded those who had the money to retain their power no matter the cost.

The elite class will never allow the masses to vote them out of their wealth. The neoliberal elitist class invented neoliberalism exactly for the purpose to restore the class power that will be chosen to be passed or paid forward on a global scale. 

Evidently, if elections could make any difference to undo their efforts, the establishment would make all elections illegal.

This is old-school cynicism that certainly has a reason to be resurrected — because it is playing so well in a country that certainly is falling for the hyperbole that is used to create a Hegelian Dialectic.

The Hegelian Dialectic has been used by governments, politicians, and lobbying groups to trigger a response and a solution.

However, now there are no solutions being reached — only blind outrage that has no focus as people are angry to the point that oftentimes they forget why they are angry in the first place.

It is like a drug and America is addicted.

If you take a look at social models and history you can always see that extreme nationalism and Socialism is always used as a tool to motivate people in times of economic crisis, and the greater the hardships on a people the more we see nationalist, socialist and state socialist movements become violent and cancerous. 

Leaders in history have used Hegelian methods to ensure that the people move into accepting philosophies and ideas that they first thought were deplorable.

It appears that appeals for nationalism have now been dispensed with and the idea of socialism is the concept that people feel that the grass may be greener with Democratic socialism.

The power elite consisting of both neocons and neoliberals are protected by the deep state. They are the unelected mob that enforces tyranny.

We the people must realize that we are now being targeted with all of the Marxist cognitive arsenal to be the one and only revolutionary factors in society, although they never explain how the “revolution” they advocate is to happen in reality. They have the answers — but they won’t tell us the entire secret because that would weaken their stronghold on the people.

This is why the mainstream media exists. Throwing crumbs to the people — and those crumbs become over-reactive expressions. Those who can appreciate these crumbs and scraps feel as though they are in on all of the secrets and that if they only follow they will be part of the big things that are in the works.

Hegelian-Marxist thinking affects our entire social and political structure. The Hegelian Dialectic is the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution. If we do not understand how the Hegelian Dialectic shapes our perceptions of the world, then we do not know how we are helping to implement the vision. When we remain locked into dialectical thinking, we cannot see outside of the box.

Hegel’s Dialectic is the tool that manipulates us into a frenzied circular pattern of thought and action. The Dialectic is active in every political issue that encourages taking sides. We can see it in environmentalists instigating conflicts against private property owners, in democrats against republicans, in greens against libertarians, in communists against socialists, in neo-cons against traditional conservatives, in community activists against individuals, in pro-choice versus pro-life, in Christians against Muslims, in isolationists versus interventionists, in peace activists against war hawks.

No matter what the issue, the stealth dialectic aims to control both the conflict and the resolution of differences and leads everyone involved into a new cycle of conflicts. The solutions to these problems don’t come from any politician. They come from those who can’t step out of the dialectic. They come from many years of programming and button-pushing. The Republic becomes the puppet and the puppeteers can make anyone dance if they play the right tune.

Every time we fight for or defend against an ideology, we are playing a necessary role in Marx and Engels’ grand design to advance humanity into a dictatorship of the proletariat. We see a new model of government emerging from the ashes. However, this model is stealth and people don’t realize that they are asking for it.

Although Marxism may have killed 100 million people during the 20th century and failed in every single society in which it has ever been tried out, it seems that a new form of this agenda is being implemented and the New Global Order will be part of the substantive process of Global sustainability. This New Order will be paved over the dead bodies of the old.

In the meantime, these Hegelian controllers keep us in a state of passivity — up until the point they tell us of some major problem that needs a solution. 

Of course, they have made the problem — and they program people to accept their solution.

If they tell you that democracy will die if you vote republican and the majority of the liberal media keep the big lie going — the result will be what we saw in the Midterm election.

I know that sounds too simple — but is it now evident that the mind control techniques are effective and that the fear-mongering worked?

Fear has always been the tool of fascists.

They are notorious for using the outrageous radical subset to create problems for them. Then they keep large masses in an idle, endlessly long “waiting” position. 

Regardless of their intent, in effect they confuse, discourage and divide the Real Left and alienate the Right, leaving both without advice as to whom to vote for and what to do in general.

When there is confusion most people do nothing or do what they believe is the easiest way to avoid making a choice — for fear of ridicule.

Can you actually stop and ponder the fact that the majority of Americans were fed up with the actions of the left-wing administration and yet the votes say they want more of the same?

This is what happened. No one wants to be called a terrorist or be associated with terrorism or racism, or any other ism that the media says is not appropriate.

The pressure worked, the dialectic worked and people are still confused as to why.

Perhaps for the moment, we should assume that the America we loved is lost, perhaps forever. That is why we keep seeing this conflict. The Republic that bound its rulers with the chains of the Constitution and freed the rest of us to live in peace is no more.

The Constitution along with our Declaration of Independence was a guarantee etched in stone of the freedoms and sovereignty needed to establish a strong Republic.

The Constitution is now cherry-picked in order to justify extremist speech, a corrupt press, and to justify other acts of malfeasance that bend or even break the rules regarding civil liberty. Are we able to pause and reflect seriously on the dire consequences of our collective behavior — or passivity when it comes to an American’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

At some point, for whatever reason, you have to come to the realization that the consensus narratives in our society about what’s going on are false. 

The tools that people are taught to use to inform themselves about their government, their nation, and their world are not just full of inaccuracies, but deliberate distortions, ranging from the reasons that were given for why wars are started, to the way our political systems work, to where real power and authority actually lies, to the way nations and governments actually behave in the world.

This awareness has come with a degree of alienation. Not buying into the same consensus narratives about the world as your friends, loved ones and peers comes with an inability to relate to them on some levels, which can cause you to feel a lack of intimacy in those areas.

You may have also found yourself the odd one out in conversations about politics or other controversial issues, maybe even lost old friends over it.

Many of you who take the time to listen to alternative views are shunned. Many of us are told to pick a side and the sides we are told to choose are extremist. Centrism is now a major sin politically and when one states that this is their affiliation, they are told that they have no place in this war of ideologies.

What is most disconcerting is that people don’t use the strength of their numbers to force an end to the oppressive, homicidal status quo, because they aren’t interested in doing so. Many have not felt enough pain to do something about it.

They see suffering as an inevitability or they see it as the new normal.

Throughout history, we have seen this happen — political ideologies that seem keen to the intellect rise up. We are told that this new idea, this new way of running the government will be efficient and better for all.

Yes, and many monstrous regimes have used populism and eventually a rabid form of nationalism to make it all look good and feel good. 

People have always asked — when is the time to fight? 

Maybe there won’t be a fight at all — because history has shown time and time again that powerful regimes take over without much resistance.

Many people feel powerless to fight against the system and chances are if we do become a country taken over by a Democratic socialist party by vote — no one will rise up against it.

There are countless examples of past and present monstrous regimes in the real world. And they all raise the question of why people didn’t just rise up against their rulers. Some of us are quick to judge those who conform to such regimes as evil psychopaths or at least morally inferior to ourselves.

But what are the chances that you would be a heroic rebel in such a scenario, refusing to be complicit in maintaining or even enforcing the system?

Let me just say history dictates that the answer is very low.

American organizational theorist James March and Norwegian political scientist Johan Olsen argued back in 2004 that human behavior is governed by two complementary, and very different, “logics.” According to the logic of consequence, we choose our actions like a good economist, weighing up the costs and benefits of the alternative options in the light of our personal objectives. This is basically how we get what we want.

But there is also a second logic, the logic of appropriateness. According to this, outcomes, good or bad, are often of secondary importance — we often choose what to do by asking “What is a person like me supposed to do in a situation like this”?

The idea is backed up by psychological research. Human social interactions depend on our tendency to conform to unwritten rules of appropriate behavior. Most of us are truthful and polite, don’t cheat when playing board games, and follow etiquette. We are happy to let judges or football referees enforce the rules. A recent study showed we even conform to arbitrary norms.

The logic of appropriateness is self-enforcing — we disapprove of, ostracize or report people who lie or cheat. Research has shown that even in anonymous and experimental “games”, people will pay a monetary cost to punish other people for being uncooperative.

Maybe it is time to revisit the Milgram experiment where people were encouraged to torture someone by giving them an electric jolt anonymously.

Milgram found that most ordinary people obeyed instructions to give what they believed to be potentially fatal shocks to innocent victims when told to do so by an authority figure.

His 1963 article on the initial findings and a subsequent book,  Obedience to Authority: An Experimental View and film, Obedience, catapulted Milgram to celebrity status and made his findings and the experiments themselves the focus of intense ethical debates.

The debate continues over whether or not people would rebel against authority now and again, the overall opinion is no.

Both logics are required to create and maintain an authoritarian regime. To ensure that we make the “right” personal choices, an oppressive state’s main tools are carrots and sticks — rewarding conformity and punishing even a hint of rebellion.

But personal gain (or survival) alone provides a fragile foundation for an oppressive state. It is easy to see how the logic of appropriateness fits in here, turning from being a force for cooperation to a mechanism for enforcing an oppressive status quo. This logic asks that we follow the “rules” and make sure others do too — often without needing to ask why the rules are the way they are.

Regimes, therefore, supplement rewards and punishments with self-policed norms, rules, and conventions.

The authoritarian state is, therefore, concerned above all with preserving ideology — defining the “right” way to think and behave — so that we can unquestioningly conform to it.

George Orwell once made the statement that “Circus dogs jump and do somersaults when the trainer cracks his whip. But the really well-trained dog is the one that jumps and does somersaults when there is no whip.”

We are now in this moment of saying “how high?” when the government says “jump” — and no matter how armed or smart we think we are — there are those that are rewarded for hunting down and taking out those who think they are revolutionaries. 

More importantly, it is nowhere explained how such an imagined “revolution” carried out by a marginal minority is democracy. 

We have been told that the riots in the city after the George Floyd murder were what real democracy looked like — and yet January 6th was considered a treasonous crime by the left. The narrative has been hijacked by activist media and soon the term democracy is abused and used as a cudgel for the election.

Democracy is, by definition, the expression and realization of the will of the majority, whereas any form of minority rule is oligarchy by definition. 

To convert society from one form of oligarchy into another. from a government of national sovereignty to global tyranny.

The concept of Democracy — along with the questions regarding the democratic deficit in our societies — have been discussed in the public forum to the degree of overall immunity and apathy towards the topic, yet without any conclusive consensus to act upon. In any society that declares itself “democracy”, this subject matter remains the number-one concern above all else. 

Again, it is a magic word that everyone from Stalin to Hitler used to rally the unconvinced into a mailable force.

It appears that during the midterm people fell for the oldest trick in the book.

It is not just the Orwellian equation of 2+2=5 but the idea of 1/2 a truth + 1/2 truth = a full lie.

We are told that the only alternative to Democracy is a form of Dictatorship. Or Fascism. This is not entirely true. But it works for those who didn’t pay attention in Civics’ class.

Democracy is by the left’s definition a system of majority-rule. That would indicate that any minority-rule — either in the form of Monarchy or Oligarchy — is by definition Dictatorship.

We have seen the definitions scream out as they have been twisted to fit the right agenda for the right effect.

Words like Fascist and Nazi have been thrown around by the left to describe their adversaries, but they do not realize how the Nazis were able to gain the power they did. 

Keep in mind that it was not primarily a matter of individual evil. 

It was a matter of self-preservation.

You destroy an economy, render the people poor, take away their jobs and their way of making a living and soon it will be a choice between working for the new party and their ideas for a better tomorrow — or starving to death.

Unfortunately, we are at the same point in this country where artificial scarcity will drive people into accepting any form of government that shows them that there is a way out of their pain.

How can evil be embraced by the mass majority without a fight? It is simple: people do not want to lose their homes, their property, or their lives. 

The atrocities of the Holocaust were made possible by normal people, manipulated into conforming to a horribly abnormal set of behavioral norms.

People conformed — some felt discomfort about it and others were easily manipulated into seeing Jews as less than human and that they needed to be eliminated because they were taking up too many resources.

Just think of the fervor with which people can enforce standards of dress, prohibitions on profane language or dietary norms — Think of how we still adapt to how Facebook censors free speech and yet we conform.

Look at how we treated each other during COVID-19 and how many people felt it was their duty to police people and coerce them into getting vaccines and demanding they wear masks and participate in curfews and lockdowns.

It is that easy.

How can evil be embraced by the mass majority without a fight? It is simple: people do not want to lose their homes, their property or their lives. 

I know this is all simple but in the bigger picture people feel  “morally bound” to protect the party, nation or religion, they even defend unseen or anonymous organizations like QAnon, Antifa and Black Lives Matter even though they do not know who or what is behind it.

How we react to unfairness affects our propensity to rebel. One study found that people who are risk-averse and easily trust others are less likely to react strongly to unfairness. While not proven in the study, it may make such individuals more likely to conform.

Another factor is social circumstances. The upper and middle classes in Germany during the 1920s-1940s were almost twice as likely to join the Nazi party than those with lower social status. So it may be that those who have the most to lose and/or are keen to climb the social ladder are particularly likely to confirm. And, of course, if other members of your social circle are conforming, you may think it’s the “appropriate” thing to do.

You ask yourself how are so many people believe in radical ideas — and this is how it starts — this is how it has always been.

We live in times where we have to ask if nationalism and patriotism are interchangeable. If Democracy and Constitutional republic are interchangeable.

In 1945, George Orwell said Nationalism should not be confused with patriotism and yet today we are seeing this challenge in many ways. It is almost as if we have blurred them together in order to divide the Capitalists from the Socialists but as much as the left hates to hear it — they are populists who border on nationalists with the same zeal as those who have been recruited into a cult.

There is also the rallying cult-like demeanor around Donald Trump. There is a powerful pairing being forged in the election process — it is the duel of fates between that which is Nationalist Socialist and that which is Nationalist Capitalist.

And many people are lost on the idea of what a nationalist socialist is because image and action parameters have hidden the meaning and no one wishes to think that they are leaning towards Nazism, or Mussolini’s Fascism or even Revolutionary Maoism.

 In the 20th century, Italian nationalism gave rise to the Fascists while German Nationalism led to two world wars and the Holocaust. No one is providing for the common defiance of such philosophies.

With the breaking of the patriotic will of the people, there can be an excuse that the rebellion is against nationalism by using another form of nationalism to destroy it.

Its devotion is not for sovereignty or independence — it is for the conjoining of a once-free Republic with the chains and shackles of the globalist plantation.

The rise of “neo-imperial” governing institutions such as the United Nations and the World economic forum threatens to usurp Americans’ right to self-determination.

Conflict and repression predate the emergence of the modern nation-state.

Nationalism goes wrong when it is tainted with maligning influences and so does socialism.

The idea of Democratic Socialism being pushed on us from the shadows makes it official even though it has been encroaching upon us for decades.

While the Voting system itself bears less and less actual value as a democratic institution, representational democracy and the elitist approach to democracy left the “of the people and by the people” condition unfulfilled. 

But this is the mission of the elite — and the joyous agenda of the Globalist Beast system.

Due to the fact that Democracy as a concept has been perverted or has perished entirely, the goal to restore Democracy has equally perished from our societies’ political goals. 

Democracy is either assumed to be already achieved or discarded by the Narcissistic elites and their enabler-masses, as “undesirable” and/or “unattainable”.

But it is still effective as a dream, and a psychological weapon, to change the course of sham elections.

    They inflated and overvalued the stock market a few weeks ago to make people think there 401ks were bouncing back. On the maps just like last year only big cities voted democrat. The vast majority of the country was red. Its obviously rigged. The rich people and there modern welfare slaves overwhelmingly vote democrat. Poor people are taught if they dont vote democrat they will lose their benefits. Its sick and disgusting but true. Its all for the best. The republicans will gain a little power in the house to push back a little and the democrats will have to take responsibility for the nest two years of misery. The powers in control must have ww3.

    3.5 million fewer people voted in NYS, I tried to get out 10 days before the election, the low turnout. The same people who did not heed my warning that AOC should not be mocked. The Constitution is not worth the paper it is written on if the ‘people’ don’t respect it. No revolution or election will correct that. You have to know it to respect it. No more civics. My cousin Joe worked with two German engineers. They told Joe their grandfather were Gestapo but NOT Nazis. Ditto the DOJ/FBI/CIA/ 17 of them, they follow orders. Grandsons are not guilty or complicit in the deeds of their grandfathers BUT to make such an excuse shows they would do the same if told to. Would you? I think so. Halls of higher learning have conditioned (taught) young Americans to take a path away from traditional American values. Watching old WWII war movies there would be this elerdly German couple looking out a window observing Patton’s tanks roll by. If we live long enough we will be looking out a window wondering what went wrong. Old Polish saying in English. “He (Biden) had the look in his eye of the devil rejoicing over a lost soul.” There will be dancing in hell this weekend. Enjoy!

    Our greatest domestic threat to US democracy is, was, and historically has been, the “Democrat Party” -America’s so designated “plantation master” for colluding and conspiring with plutocrat Globalist$.

    They never stopped fighting the first Civil War, but I repeat myself.

    A treatise on this long progression to executive autocratic tyranny in using US freedoms to destroy freedom, further ellucidates itself in: “Battle for the American Mind” – by Peter Hegseth and David Goodwin.

    The Republic becoming children pied pipers make follow when they play the right tune. Let’s pray it’s the Pipers and not US children, who one day will never be seen again.

    “1/2 truth(1/2 lie)” + “(1/2 lie)1/2 truth” = “truth -‘Lie’- truth” ; complete lie is found in the middle. Chew it apart, but don’t swallow sandwich
