With the recent Russian attack on Ukraine, we can condemn it and pray for its people, but somehow those prayers are hollow when one political party again, signals their moral superiority over those who have a hard time picking sides in a conflict that really does not affect our country, however, in time, it will affect the entire world if Putin becomes the next Hitler. The closer one looks at the situation, the more difficult it becomes to avoid the realization that the US government and NATO are also the aggressors in relations with Russia as the fight over Ukraine is being used for the establishment of the New World Order. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with geopolitical and military analyst, Steven Ben-Nun about PUTIN ON THE FRITZ.





Yesterday, I faced an onslaught of criticism because I decided to expose the CYA moment provided by Bill Gates and the pharmaceutical elite as we are watching Covid-19 fade into history. Conveniently the messages of fudged data and Bill Gates’s confession of the stark reality of failure was ignored because of the attack on Ukraine.

Some were even claiming that I said that the attacks were not real – when I absolutely didn’t.

I was merely calling the war a Schrodinger’s cat – where we only can take the word of the media that has been crying wolf about the invasion for months – and then as the countdown began, it was as if the war was on and that we should be concerned and look to our lord and savior Joe Biden for guidance.

It is difficult to grasp the realities of the international power struggle unfolding in real-time.

But there are so many people who claim that they have this story mastered – but I needed to review what I said and what my research has shown – in fact the prediction of the conflict was made on Ground Zero in April of 2021 in the show “April Firestarter.”

And still after the predictions of intervention – after a possible invasion – we still are not yet near going to blows with Russia.

I need to start off by saying that while everyone has their panties in a bunch about what is going on with Ukraine — we are not at war with Russia. We may send troops to help Ukraine because NATO and various neo-liberals staged a coup there in 2014 and have financial interest in resources.

This escalating ‘moment’ because Russia has said enough to Western bullying and ‘containment’.

It has been a long time coming. For Ukraine, it stems from the coup d’état in Kiev – fomented by the West – exactly 8 years ago.

What gets me is that no one knows the context of how long this has gone on and just who invaded who and when it began,

The first casualty in a war is the truth. The US and NATO allege that Putin’s Russia is a malevolent aggressor against neighboring Ukraine.  They assert that the US and NATO are simply defending the rights of an oppressed nation.

Meanwhile, what the sycophantic legacy news media convey to the public is a gross distortion of the reality in this current Ukraine crisis.

The US, NATO, and the legacy news media portray NATO as an instrument for maintaining peace and democracy in Europe. However, while NATO seeks to expand to the very borders of Russia, Russia is explicitly excluded from admission to membership. In fact,

NATO is as always a key military force for the world order ; and that now includes actions to confine Russia so as to prevent it from having influence anywhere beyond its own borders.

Most US and NATO-ally political leaders including nearly every member of Congress from both parties “justify” their hostility toward Putin’s Russia by claiming that it is an autocratic regime seeking to recreate the Russian Empire. In fact, the Russian government, like its US and other NATO counterparts, is a multi-party electoral regime.

But now the moves by Putin have all but justified Russian hate and now he is the new Hitler which distracts us from how we got to this point in history.

The historical, political and ethnic divisions in Ukraine go back decades, if not centuries, but we don’t have the mental space for that kind of deep-dive. So the media and their talking points are all what people go on — and it is so embarrassing.

What Biden wants to do is maintain appearances but he has said we will not go to war with Russia.

All we are doing is sending letters to the Kremlin telling them how angry we are — and that we are going to keep Russia form making money.

The post-World War II world order that has maintained relative peace in Europe is threatened. But Biden has also been very clear on another point: US troops will not be sent to Ukraine to take part in the conflict.

As he announced new sanctions on Russia on Thursday, Biden said, “Our forces are not and will not be engaged in the conflict.” He added, “Our forces are not going to Europe to fight in Ukraine but to defend our NATO allies and reassure those allies in the east.”

When he announced the first tranche of sanctions against Russia for beginning its invasion on Tuesday, Biden similarly took great care to make clear the US was not being aggressive toward Russia.

“Let me be clear: These are totally defensive moves on our part. We have no intention of fighting Russia,” Biden said.

So for everyone who has become overnight experts on what is happening — The mainstream media is not the place to get your education — but unfortunately we all seem to be making the decision on who is bad and who is good.

Does anyone suppose that Russian leaders have forgotten the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, brought about by the presence of Soviet missiles in what US leaders considered their “back yard,” which brought the US and the Soviet Union  to the brink of nuclear war? Would any Russian leader sit silently and acquiesce to NATO expansion into Ukraine and, presumably, US missiles in Russia’s “front yard”?

No, they wouldn’t

Putin also had reservation about biological weapons labs that were set up in the region and the rumor is that many of his targets are those labs. But leave it to the left leaning media to immediately dismiss this as Russian propaganda.

I can give you a long list of everything that is wrong with the media propaganda that is being pushed and how we are being completely bombarded with psychological warfare tactics.

Everything wrong with the this situation is how the media wants us to personalize these events,  with storybook thematics of good vs evil, freedom vs despotism, democracy vs. dictatorship.

We always seem to flaunt the image and action parameters based on what Hitler did and seldom bring up other tyrants –when making our decisions about who is evil and who isn’t.

It is obvious what got our attention in history class — and it looks as if Marxist themes have been overlooked or things like coup de tat and the placing of puppet governments in struggling countries often get overlooked as well.

We have been saying that we are involved with  so many wars that it is hard to determine what wars and when we started being part of the conflicts.

Again, George Orwell comes to mind with the metaphor of the wars between Oceania Eurasia and East Asia.

Putin has given the Biden administration a wonderful gift. He has created a template that allows them all to say in unison: there is something even worse than us.

They can hope for a turnaround in their sagging polling numbers, new respect and appreciation for their strong leadership in a time of crisis, and more reliably depend on a deferential media machine that knows the ways of wartime require parroting whatever powerful foreign-policy experts say in public and private.

Wow it is like this tune has been played before — so forgive my cynicism and out right aggravation about what is happening — I am already seeing posts in social media that say “I stand by my President”  –well I hope that those who stand by him are willing to hold him up because his weakness is showing — and I am not at all afraid to call it as I see it.

This has put my patriotism into question by left wing haters that I am beginning to see as flies that need to swatted away.

What most Americans are brainwashed into believing is that patriotism means supporting the war machine or supporting the decisions of a sitting president.

What they fail to recognize is that these ongoing wars have little to do with keeping the country safe

America’s part in the showdown between Russia and the Ukraine—has conveniently followed on the heels of a long line of other crises, manufactured or otherwise, which have occurred like clockwork in order to keep Americans distracted, deluded, amused, and insulated from the government’s steady encroachments on our freedoms.

And so it continues in its Orwellian fashion.

At a moment when wise leaders would spare no effort to move heaven and earth to find and implement new ways to encourage all of us to work together to solve the several potentially existential threats — all of them of mankind’s own making — to the uninterrupted continuity and progress of human civilization, instead we find ourselves on the brink of a nuclear war.

We are apparently unable to have a moment of peace — or a moment to take a breath, We are now moving forward with another crisis to involve ourselves in — and most people are really unaware of why they are taking a position in something that really is an empty attempt at resurrecting the Cold war.

People who wish to use discernment have an ability to understand their adversary’s perspectives.

American politicians have typically failed to understand Putin or appreciate the gravity of his concerns, which he has often sought to make quite clear.

Post-WWII American leaders have too often seen themselves as masters of the geopolitical universe despite the defeat of U.S. forces in Vietnam and more recent debacles in Iraq and Afghanistan, and wars in Libya and Yemen that have further destabilized Southwest Asia and Africa and flooded much of Europe and even Australia with refugees oh and never mind the refugee crisis on our own southern border.

The conversation about what is going on lacks context and so people are speaking half truths and throwing around accusations of being a traitor or a Putin sympathizer if you take the time to tell the truth about what is really going on.

I wanted to make a few things clear about this escalating situation in Europe.  I believe that there are many people who have posted on Facebook that I had stated that there is no war in Ukraine.

I looked over my notes to make sure — and I came up with nothing.  I merely had said at the time that the media was creating an air of war before the attacks began and that since November they have been crying wolf… or there has been an attempt to goad Russia into attacking.

As far back as April of last year I actually ironed out the plan in my show called April “Firestarter.”  Even back then I saw war on the horizon and the motivation for NATO and its allies to push for the war they wanted and the war we finally got.

I guess what threw some people off is my use of the words “False Flag” and “Psychological Operation.”  All wars have their share of false flag attacks, this was also terminology that was being used by the Biden administration as what would trigger an attack.

All wars and preludes to war are in part psychological operations. The proof of this is how fast people have now turned-on Russia.  The reason being is that we have had eight years of blaming Russia for many things, form cyber attacks to election meddling and now the novelty of the whole dossier scandals have worn off and the left are now justified and are claiming they are correct in the resolve because of induced conformation bias.

i should have prepared myself for attacks from Left leaning people who want to trap me into some sort of lie or misinformation but I have to say for the record that I gave the blueprint of this confrontation last April, said that there was a massive psychological Operation that began in November of last year — and after so many warnings that Putin was going to unleash his troops on Ukraine, it happened.

The media started claiming that the war began on 2.22.22 but officially it began on 2.24.22. This is how the media sews seeds of confusion.

As Russian bombs rained down on Ukraine,  The Biden administration after having spent the better part of two years bullying the citizens about Covid and condemning alleged insurrection spoke about how he would be a president that would bring about equality freedom, democracy, peace, and human rights.

Biden claimed that he would be better than his predecessor, Donald Trump.

For the record we were told that Trump if elected would bring about World War III.  Irony is lost on those who wish to attack people who see this war as a liability to Ukraine no matter who wants to move in and claim it — whether it be Russia or NATO.

With the Russian attack on Ukraine, we can condemn it and pray for the people of Ukraine, but somehow those prayers are hollow, when one political party again signals their moral superiority over those who have a hard time picking sides in a conflict that really does not affect our country — but in time it will  affect the entire world if Putin becomes the next Hitler.

But of course everyone who seems to be at odds with the left are Hitlers.

It is very much like the Santas you see on every street corner at Christmas — there are Hitlers everywhere,

But calling Putin Hitler was a bit of Propaganda that was created by Victoria F ## the EU Nuland and Hillary Clinton during the original t coup d’état that they organized in 2014 against the sitting government of Ukraine.

Putin, who lost family members in the Nazi invasion of his homeland, claimed that their accusation of him being Hitler poured salt in a very deep wound, However, this coup was never seen as an invasion — it was seen as necessary and so did any one pick sides then — or did they really care about geopolitical ponerism and parapolitical hijinks?

No,they really didn’t and as with any war the media decides to prop up — Amercians who can’t find Ukraine on the mao suddenly become geopolitical experts. This is sad especially when they won’t even go back and look at the history of how this conflict came to be.

Anyone who questions the war narrative now is accused of claiming the war is not real, or that they are apologists for what Putin has done.  There is no excuse for what he has done and there is no excuse for what we are doing either — in fact on both sides of the aisle what is happening makes no sense.

Both Mikhail Gorbachev and President Putin had previously proposed or inquired about Russian membership in NATO.

Moreover, after the terror attacks of 9/11/2001, Putin was the first foreign leader to call then-President George W. Bush. On Nov. 15, 2001 Putin visited the site of the terrorist attack that destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York.

According to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Putin followed up by directly aiding “the U.S.-led military operation in Afghanistan — where the Taliban had shielded Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, who was behind the 9/11 attacks — by opening Russian airspace for U.S. humanitarian flights, sharing intelligence, and acquiescing to U.S. deployments in the former Soviet republics of Central Asia, which Russia still considers part of its sphere of influence.”

The closer one looks at the situation, the more difficult it becomes to avoid the realization that the US government and NATO are also the aggressors in relations with Russia, that the fight over Ukraine is one first family of wars being used for the establishment of the New World order . It is rather odd that this is the place that both sides are i determined to pursue even at the real risk of nuclear war.

I have always hated wars that seem to benefit the billionaires and the pundits of the new World order– and I see all sides as responsible for wars that aim to bankrupt nations. put people in immediate danger, and break up families, especially when it comes to service personnel who go in and put themselves in harms way fighting for a cause or an agenda that increases the chances of chances of terrorism and blowback domestically, and pushes our country  that much closer to eventual collapse.

All the more to keep the world in a perpetual state of tyranny — and now all of a sudden people are picking sides because their political saviors want them to,

They are to blame for where we are now — and there is no argument that can prove otherwise.

Clearly, our national priorities are in desperate need of an overhaul. Eventually, all military empires fall and fail by spreading themselves too thin and spending themselves to death.

It happened in Rome: at the height of its power, even the mighty Roman Empire could not stare down a collapsing economy and a burgeoning military. Prolonged periods of war and false economic prosperity largely led to its demise.

The governors and leaders of Rome knew that the Roman empire was dead but they continued to kick the corpse for loose change.

It is apparent to people with any kind of discernment or context that if the US and NATO had really cared about what was best for the people of Ukraine, they would have urged its government to make peace with Russia, Crimea, and the Donbas rebels: by accepting the secessionist will of the Crimeans, by implementing the promised autonomy for the breakaway Donbas regions, by committing to respect the language and other human rights of its minorities, by suppressing its neo-Nazi and allied hate groups that were placed into power by the likes of Victoria Nuland, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John McCain and other hawks.  In fact, the leaders that represent NATO have cynically used Ukraine as a pawn in their new cold war against Russia.

In their arrogance, they have pushed nuclear-armed Russia to the point that it has concluded that it must respond with military force.

It is hard to pick a side when all involved have literally abused the people of Ukraine to their own ends.
