People are losing their minds – America’s mental health is dire as society looks like a zombie science fiction movie. Molds and fungus are the original reasons for zombies and clickers in the TV series, The Last of Us, and characterized by the neurological disorder, “excited delirium.” A supposedly untreatable form of Candida Auris is now devastating the elderly and immune-compromised. Furthermore, our environment is becoming more toxic – we are witnessing an intentional culling process speed up the agenda of eliminating the least of us or what the elite call, “bottom feeders.”  Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with Dr. Jason West about THE LEAST OF US.





When I attended the fan expo over the weekend the majority of the people, I met wanted to know my thoughts on the many train derailments that have been happening and the effects of the chemicals on the ecosystem.

Well first I had to address, the issue of the inordinate amount of train derailments that include the threat of chemicals and how the government and the railroads were very quick in telling people that the coast was clear after two days, when we just had a pandemic where they kept us locked down and desperate for two years.

There is a major imbalance there.

I mentioned that they will not know the full effects of how these chemicals will affect the populations of 5 states and that this will affect the area for many years.

I said that this is how Zombie movies start.

The portrayal of human monsters is not new in culture as the depictions of the Golem, Frankenstein’s monster and Zombies makes apparent: representations of humans that cannot really live or reproduce, the symbols of anti-nature.

Our anxieties about our position in the natural order of things and our treatment of the environment. animals, radiation and toxic chemicals  have always been reflected in our beliefs and depictions of ourselves as a higher order and created by an omnipotent being.

No matter how powerful we may be. no matter whose side you think God is on — there is always something bigger or even smaller than us — something almost invisible introduced to the ecosystem that can maim or kill us without warning.

Back in April 2010 an explosion at a British Petroleum oil rig resulted in millions of barrels of oil contaminating the Gulf of Mexico. Despite the drastic measures taken to prevent an environmental catastrophe, an oil slick produced by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill covered over sixty thousand square miles.

As one of the means of addressing the environmental catastrophe on their hands, Washington decided to take drastic measures, regardless of the possible consequences of those actions. It was at that time when an artificially created microorganism nicknamed Cynthia was unleashed, without any kind of examination of the possible threat it may pose to the environment.

Cynthia is the brainchild of the J. Craig Venter Institute — which was engaged in genetic engineering experiments since the beginning of the 21st century — and Synthetic Genomics Inc and was created and funded directly by BP. It was believed that Cynthia feeds on oil, but it turns out now that it is equally willing to consume all forms of organic life as well…and it also would eat human flesh.

Even though there’s been a number of lethal cases of exposure along the Gulf of Mexico, American authorities chose to keep this whole deal a secret.

But there are other strange occurrences were something strange has been introduced to the ecosystem and scientists have been very quite about the issue — since it could lead to extinction-level circumstances.

A rather disturbing number of reports has recently been presented by independent media sources, all talking about the Xylella fastidiosa bacteria that threatens to completely wipe both Italy and a number of other Mediterranean countries clean off centuries-old olive trees. This microbe, which would typically appear in America, has already infected 800 thousand olive trees in the closed commune of Salento, located in Apulia, Italy.

This Italian region produces more than a third of the world’s supply of olive oil, which amounts to some 11 million tons a year.

According to European ID specialists, olive trees are not the only ones that remain vulnerable to this pathogen, as a number of vineyards is  also at risk, especially Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Unsurprisingly, wine producers of the whole Mediterranean basin are now expressing their concern over the possible epidemic of Xylella fastidiosa going rampant across their vineyards.

In addition, it turned out that this bacteria has the potential of destroying the entire banana market. The rapid spread of fungus has already ruined banana plantations across the Southeast Asia and is now spreading across the Middle East and Africa, which threatens the global banana market.

Europe suggest that this is biological warfare, but they cannot trace where it comes form — only that the Fungus poses an immediate danger to these crops.

The main carriers of Xylella fastidiosa are cicadas that feed on plants. And in this regard, one would involuntarily recall accusations repeatedly made by European scientists that the so-called Insect Allies project supervised by American secret service was nothing but an attempt to develop weapons of mass destruction.

It was launched by the Pentagon back in 2016 and can easily be regarded as an attempt to create biological weapons during gain of function trials.

Yes You haven’t heard about this in the mainstream news — and you may not ever — but you are hearing about it here.

This program is funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense, with the latter allocating some 45 million dollars over a course of four years. The program was specifically designed to promote the use of artificial insects to infect crops with genetically modified viruses, which, in turn, will modify the genome of mature plants.

Secret studies for this program is conducted in a number of US universities. Scientists, whose opinion publishes Science, considered that “the program can be widely perceived as an attempt to develop biological agents for hostile purposes, as well as their means of delivery”.

Thus, by constantly expanding the area of the so-called National Biodefense Strategy, our defense apparatus has been actively adding new states to this network, spending tens of millions of dollars to achieve seemingly noble goals. Only in recent years, the White House has got such countries aboard as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Burundi, Kenya, Uganda, India, Iraq, Tanzania, South Africa, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine, which results in hundreds of new biological laboratories being created by the Pentagon.

The population of countries hosting these laboratories hasn’t been informed about the goals of the top-secret projects that Pentagon pursues.

As a result, we witness cases similar to the spread of the Xylella fastidiosa bacteria, which makes most anybody wonder why the so-called National Biodefense Strategy isn’t working or if it is, behind the pandemics.

Once again, our fears of our brutal selves lead us to try and characterize ourselves as more important than those small viruses and fungi that can kill us in a self-defeating vicious cycle.

There has always been that science fiction concern of the Zombie apocalypse — and we are seeing it manifest –but it is doing so over time — and entropy is most certainly eating away at us very slowly.

There is a quality of suffocating sameness and emptiness that permeates daily life. People don’t look at each other on the street, they look at their phones.

When I was at the Fan expo over the weekend and after I was in a panel with Writer Jeff Davis — I headed to the restroom and was nearly knocked over by a cosplayer glaring into his phone while he was walking.

We have seen this zombie like behavior many times in small excerpts from America’s stupid home videos. People have been known to fall into holes and walk in front of cars. Funny how using a phone like that can make you a star in Darwin’s waiting room.

If and when you leave the confines of your safe home you find yourself walking all the time, among the pod people.  I see people walking the streets in my neighborhood yelling at invisible people. Some walk aimlessly with shopping carts full of trash — and people setting up camp in parking lots even though they can be run over by vehicles trying to find a place to park.

People are losing their minds.

America’s mental health is in a dire state. Things are looking like a Zombie Science fiction movie in the U.S., and really this is increasingly true in Europe, too, but not nearly to the same extent, We are becoming an excruciatingly lonely country. People have lost the ability to make, and more, to sustain friendships. And how the role of social media plays into that is an open question. Or media in general.

The marketing of technology serves to manufacture an appeal, on one level there are troubling numbers of people who seem, all by themselves, to *want*, to desire, to have robots do the work for them — while they enjoy their Chemical enslavement with drugs and alcohol.

While many people we interact with everyday now do so without the wearing of the mask — the mask still seems to be attached to a lot of people or they are attached to it — because of the damage that as been done to the minds of those that are paranoid about getting Covid -19 or something worse.

The clear lesson that has been programmed into many is to fear the unknown other. We have been indoctrinated into believing that humans are contagious and potentially lethal. Intimacy is officially discouraged. There are people that still isolate themselves and others secretly worry about the etiquette of fist bumping as opposed to hugs and handshakes.

And yet with all of the so called pushing of the worry of diseases and the mythology of Climate change they are able to declare a small town in Ohio as safe after two days of being exposed to dangerous chemicals.. Keep in mind that a virus with a 95 percent recovery rate  can cripple an entire nation for two years. level economies,  force coercion  and lockdowns and ruin people’s morale.

This is how we can determine that your leaders hate you and that they do not care if you live or die. All they see in an opportunity to enforce tyranny and display their greed,

The media has a way of creating group think and classic propaganda generates a whole new brand of clandestine Mind control.

There have been many instances on this show where we have talked about mind control. and the infamous MK ultra-programs that have been managed by The CIA and other intelligence operations in our country.

However, a new Science fiction TV show called “The Last of Us” Introduces us to a fungi that is capable of controlling chemically the actions of insects which of course jumps from the species into the living flesh of humans.

Ophiocordyceps unilateralis is the fungus that overtakes the bodies of living ants — and actually turns it into a zombie -where even though the creature is alive the fungus has taken over the insect and it clings to a leaf for dear life.

When the fungus infects a carpenter ant, it grows through the insect’s body, draining it of nutrients and hijacking its mind. Over the course of a week, it compels the ant to leave the safety of its nest and ascend a nearby plant stem. It stops the ant at a height of 25 centimeters—a zone with precisely the right temperature and humidity for the fungus to grow.

It forces the ant to permanently lock its mandibles around a leaf. Eventually, it sends a long stalk through the ant’s head, growing into a bulbous capsule full of spores. And because the ant typically climbs a leaf that overhangs its colony’s foraging trails, the fungal spores rain down onto its sisters below, zombifying them in turn.

It has become the obsession of David Hughes, an entomologist at Pennsylvania State University, who has been studying it for years. He wants to know exactly how this puppet master controls its puppets—and his latest experiments suggest that it’s even more ghoulish than it first appears.

The fungus’s skill at colonizing and mind-controlling ants is surpassed only by its skill at colonizing and mind control popular culture. It’s the organism behind the “Clickers” monsters of The Last of Us.

The Last Of Us which started as a successful video game and now is the latest successful horror show on HBO.

The new show has been making waves as its popularity has soared since its debut just a few weeks ago, but many have been left wondering if the premise behind it could come to fruition.

A fungus that takes over the brain of some insects mutates due to climate change, allowing it to survive in warmer conditions and ultimately spread to humans, turning them into “zombies.”

Some experts say the possibility of a future fungal pandemic can’t be ruled out — but it may not be that easy.

The fungus behind the zombie outbreak in “The Last of Us,” known as cordyceps or ophiocordyceps, does in fact exist in the world already.

According to Harvard University, the spores of the fungus “infect a host, spreading the mycelium through the host’s body and digesting its internal organs.”

After colonizing and killing the host from the inside out, the fungus produces a lengthy fruiting body that emerges to spread its spores to the next unsuspecting insect,” the university’s website states.

But the species of fungus has also been thought to have healing properties, as cordyceps have “been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries” with supplements derived from the fungus marketed to treat “a wide range of diseases.”

However there cannot be any guarantees as we are fast becoming a world that wants to introduce insects into the world diet.

The FDA has long classified insects as ‘filth’, but as we usher in a new era of edible insects, they might want to revise their classification from insects being something it tolerates in the food supply to something people might someday wish to consume.

This disconnect was observed in an article by Marie Boyd, a law professor at the University of South Carolina Law School. In her article entitled “Cricket Soup: A Critical Examination of the Regulation of Insects as Food,” she explains that although the FDA has devoted significant attention to insects as undesirable defects in human food, it has given little attention to insects as human food.

She says that, culturally, insects are not commonly considered food in the United States partially because the FDA has categorized insects as ‘filth’ under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA). She concludes that by recognizing insects as food, the FDA may help to facilitate greater acceptance of insects as a food source by the general public.

The edible insect industry is booming. And although the thought of eating bugs may be unappealing, insect protein is already being used for aquaculture, livestock feed, pet foods, and many products intended for human consumption. Insects are also being hailed as a possible solution to world hunger as increasing populations, and limited resources become a growing concern, and food industries are compelled to find viable alternatives.

Some will rationalize that we are already eating bugs anyway.

According to FDA guidelines, a certain amount of insect parts are, although not desirable, allowed in the foods we eat. The Food and Drug Administration’s Defect Levels Handbook states that certain “natural and unavoidable defects” are allowed in our food and, supposedly, don’t pose threats to humans.

For example, any macaroni and cheese product may contain as many as 225 insect fragments or more per 225 grams of food. Peanut butter allows 30 or more insect fragments up to 100 grams, and wheat flour allows 75 or more insect fragments per 50 grams. Interestingly, the FDA categorizes the presence of insect parts in foods as ‘insect filth,’ and other things it allows in our foods are mold, Drosophila fly eggs, and ‘rodent filth’, which includes hairs and feces.

The list is comprehensive and a sobering reminder that we are already consuming insects and many more things we might not have imagined. Simply put, it is all but impossible to keep these contaminants out of our food entirely.

Some foods—such as grains, dried beans, dried fruits, and coffee—are susceptible to fungus or mold that produce toxins known as mycotoxins. Only certain molds and fungi can produce mycotoxins of concern. If you eat something containing high levels of those mycotoxins, you can get sick. If you eat something from an animal that ate mycotoxins (such as milk from a cow that ate mycotoxin-infected corn), you can get sick.

As an individual consumer, you generally cannot control the presence of mycotoxins in your food. The fungi that produce mycotoxins generally grow during crop production and storage.

Fungus and molds are the hidden factors in many disorders of the human body — many of them part of the so called “filth” that we can accidentally consume.

When we think of diseases that trigger rage and what can be called a zombie response, we can always look back at a fungus known as Ergot. Actually, it was mold that could be ingested or inhaled. It would be found in rye, wheat, barley, rice, corn, millet and oats.

People exposed to this fungus were at risk of death, brain damage, hearing loss, learning disabilities, speech complications, seizures, and paralysis.

The frightening irony was that in the early 1600’s there were many people suffering from the same malady and they were burned as witches. The bewitchment that everyone feared was eventually proven to be linked to Ergot found in rye bread.

Individuals with symptoms believed to be the result of bewitching were not affected until December 1691 and their occurrence ended abruptly in the late fall of 1692, probably when that batch of rye ran out. The ending of witchcraft outbreaks was likely due, not to execution of witches, but to the fact that there was a drought in 1692 with conditions unfavorable for fungal infection and growth.

Symptoms of bewitchment consisted of convulsions, hallucinations, manic melancholia, psychosis, delirium, crawling sensations of the skin, vertigo, headaches, vomiting and diarrhea, all symptoms associated with the ingestion of ergotized rye.

There is also the strange case of the Colony Of Roanoke in What is now called Dare county North Carolina.

According to historians the colony disappeared without a trace. Even worse, they left a sign that no human can decipher with the word, CROATOAN, on it.

There are so may theories as to how the Colony disappeared and one of them is that the colony may have been poisoned by Ergot.

I once interviewed the author or World War Z , Max Brooks who theorized that perhaps the colonists were poisoned from eating tainted Rye bread — and the result was something akin to a zombie attack where crazed colonists started killing one another including the Indians and they ate their flesh.

Molds and Fungus are the original reasons for Zombies –and of course clickers in “The Last of Us.”

While many people would see this as a form of demonic possession – it became endemic to the time and soon doctors and neurologists came up with the term, excitable delirium.

Excited delirium, also known as agitated delirium, is a condition that presents with psychomotor agitation, delirium, and sweating. It may include attempts at violence, unexpected strength, and very high body temperature.

Some psychiatrists have even talked of adding a “trance and possession disorder” diagnosis to the DSM, the premier diagnostic manual of disorders used by mental health professionals in the US.

There’s still so much about the human mind that psychiatrists don’t know.

As such, perhaps we should take a page from our pre-modern predecessors and recognize that physical and mental hygiene are two sides of the same sociobiological coin. Pandemic diseases, once established in local biomes, can almost never be eradicated, only controlled and lived with, as human societies have done for millennia.

But fear and paranoia are equally contagious and can become pandemics in their own right. In a time of global traumas, it seems only rational to use the power of belief as part of our basic hygiene, too.

Many people seem to think they are experts about Covid-19 or even Climate change because they trust the science– but the science has not informed them that waiting in the wings are various fungal forms that can destroy the body.

It is unlikely that you will turn into a Zombie but the chances seem to be growing that people are being subjected to increased non treatable fungal afflictions.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified a cluster of patients infected with an untreatable fungus in two hospitals in the Dallas –Fort Worth area.

In all, 22 patients were infected between January and April with a form of Candida Auris, and two did not respond to any of the three major groups of antifungal medications. The latter two patients died. The fungus poses the most danger to those who are immunocompromised, according to the CDC. A nursing home in Washington, D.C., has reported the same fungus spreading among residents, infecting 101 in total and killing one. The CDC said the outbreaks are ongoing.

According to the CDC, it is “multidrug-resistant” and called a “mystery” because it is difficult to identify with standard lab tests. The results have been damaging as it has spread throughout several healthcare facilities without medical officials being aware.

This fungus is a killer and if it cannot be treated it will kill you within 90 days.

There is no vaccine that can be the magic bullet for this — and many people are unaware of how it is waiting to attack some people whose immune systems have been compromised with Covid-19 and its variants.

This is why the show “The last of us” is more terrifying due to how close it can hit a community.

The superbug fungus has spread to nursing homes and is carried from patient to patient by health care workers. It grows on IV lines and ventilators, and it infects hospital gowns and clothing. Aggressive sterilization efforts using aerosolized hydrogen peroxide do nothing to kill this fungus, and the cover-up continues, even as rates of infections and fatalities are exploding across the western world.

The whole C. Auris scare is playing a lot like this as hospital ventilation systems are pumping out this fungus, right into the open atmosphere, where winds carry it to local communities and farms, infecting crops and foods with chemical-resistant fungal strains that have a reported 41% – 88% fatality rate in humans.

And the CDC kept it a secret because they didn’t want to “alarm” the public.

This has been silently spreading over the last four years, with virtually zero media reports, very little information from the CDC, and a coordinated cover-up by the hospitals of the western world to keep patients in the dark while they’re being infected and killed by a deadly pathogen.

The fungus preys on those with weakened immune systems, including infants and the elderly. Its symptoms include extreme fatigue, and in certain immune-weakened populations.

Turkey right now is extremely vulnerable as multiple earthquakes including a recent 6.8  tremor, is now spreading uncontrollable fungal infections.

Survivors of Turkey’s devastating earthquake are criticizing the government for a lack of sanitary facilities in the affected region. Emergency services have said infectious diseases are on the rise.

Children are suffering from diarrhea, and rashes are breaking out. “There are people who have been forced to wear the same clothes for days,” the doctor said, “and as they sweat skin rashes have been the result.” Cancer patients who have sought help have been turned away as doctors lack the proper medicine to treat them.

Women are now suffering from many fungal infections.  No ne has access to showers.

all of these disasters. toxic geoengineering  and intentional culling processes speed up the agenda of eliminating the least of us — or what the elite call the bottom feeders.

So it’s about time the international community starts asking questions instead of watching in silence the creation of hundreds of biological laboratories all over the world that the White House is not describing as the principal allies of the United States!

Biological attacks are happening right now with plausible deniability — and what we see as acts of God are being promulgated by our own government to guarantee certain resources for their future.

Washington has been keen on imposing sanctions on the rest of the world, and bombing countries that use biological and chemical weapons on their own people isn’t it time for the international community to investigate just what the United States is up to –and what chemical accidents can be considered calculated sabotage?

We all can conclude that the Nord Stream gas pipeline bombings have caused further environmental chaos by stirring up pollutants from chemical weapons dumped after the Second World War.

Methane is also a dangerous greenhouse gas as well.

Mustard gas during WWI, the firebombing of civilian targets by the Allied forces during WW2, Napalm in Vietnam and depleted uranium in the Middle East.

It all sounds like a war strategy — maybe we can throw in chemical train derailments and the destruction of underwater pipelines — they are being seen as random when they too can be an act of war.

    This reminds me of another of those ,”TIME TRAVELER,” videos from 2018. This one involves people from the year 2073, going nuts and trying to either eat themselves, or pull their lips over their heads, believe it or not, because in the year 2017, their ancestors are supposed to have eaten tainted meat.

    Over the weekend, I heard there has been an average of 600 to 800 train derailments per year for at least the last eight to ten years.
    As for all those bio-weapons labs in Europe, Judith Miller, in her book ,”GERMS,” documented Putin’s SOVIET UNION’S lengthy and detailed history of their BIOWEAPONS /BIOWARFARE program. It even had an interesting account of how a Soviet General became inoculated by areasol in a sauna while listening to Classical Music.

    Hitler targeted directly the weak and infirm, as useless eaters. Any surprise monomaniacs (Schwab would follow suit?

    A “must read” for historical parallels/insight : Eric Metaxas, “Letter to the American Church”

    We need not only Patrick Henry’s, but Dietrich Bonhoeffers! He could have easily been in “Valkyrie,” a la Col. Claus von Stauffenberg (Tom Cruise)

    It remains to be seen whether these allegations presented as newspaper articles can stand up to a trial in a court of competent jurisdiction, under cross examination, or a congressional hearing, or even an investigation by some credible international organization, such as SCOTTLAND YARD or INTERPOL.

    Another theory I heard about from the PBS, series, ” NOVA”, about the disappearance of the lost colony of Roanoke, is that some of them and some the indigenous, ie., natives, eventually fell in love, wed, and had families, because, according to this documentary, when later expeditions arrived there, they encountered blonde, blue eyed children.

    America is over run with illegals.armies of cartels ISIS Nazis ancient Rome invaded by Barbarian. With sexual moral collapse anything goes animal sex etc etc etc Sodom and Gomorrah will fall again God is passing out judge.too late…in 1965 a few books I read about biological weapons had a Q fever virus which was created for Chinese too make them insanity mad. Look around u.its here already..

    Ozone kills molds and fungus and will sterilize, indefinitely, N-95 masks from covid. It is far less of a toxoid than is presented by CDC, etc. Nikola Tesla had his own manufacturing supply company which sold ozone generators to MD’s to treat patients.
    It was used on WWI German battlefields to sterilize soldiers wounds. (And the list goes on, including dental and otic infections. I’ve used it for both.)

    You can buy units online w/o an Rx, for ~$100.

    Time to switch into Henry/Bonhoeffer mode!
