Non-binary singer, Sam Smith gave literally one hell of a performance at the Grammys on Sunday. His song and dance act was viewed as a Satanic ritual as he performed wearing a top hat with devil horns, flames everywhere and women in cages. It was sponsored by the Big Pharma company, Pfizer. Congruently, the Satanic Temple’s online clinic will provide medication abortion pills by mail to those who wish to perform their religious abortion ritual. What is happening to the world? Why are we now openly seeing these dark occult attitudes that were once hidden in subliminal ways? Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with Nathaniel Gillis, occult researcher and author about MARK OF THE BEATSING A SONG FOR SATAN.





The USA is waging war on many fronts.  It is a form of total war – cold, hot, medical, military, mind-control, spiritual, etc. – that demands a total response from us.  None of us is completely innocent; we are all part of the deep evil that is happening all around us.

Many can feel it rumbling beneath the surface of world events. It’s a rumbling in the bowels. It’s unspoken. It’s something very dark, sinister, and satanic. It seems to be a form of systemic evil almost with a will of its own that is sweeping the world.

People are saying it is the demonic — but perhaps we are breeding a form of Dark Leisure where anything sick in depraved is considered rebellion against the system.

It’s all in modern entertainment now, like the movie, the unreality of endless propaganda, sick, sordid, and what people call satanic — and it is not the image of a young girl spitting pea soup at a priest.

I think it would be a serious mistake to dismiss the demonic nature of the forces at work in our world today.

Today it was announced the Church of England may declare God as a Gender Neutral Entity.

For decades, the gender of God has prompted debate within the Church, with many calling for male pronouns He and Him, as well as the reference to Our Father, to be scrapped in favor of either gender-neutral or female alternatives.

Now, in what would mark a departure from centuries of tradition, bishops are to launch a project “on gendered language” referencing God in church services later this year.

The move has been criticized by conservatives, who have warned that “male and female imagery is not interchangeable”. However, liberal Christians have welcomed it, claiming that “a theological misreading of God as exclusively male is a driver of much-continuing discrimination and sexism against women”.

Details of the plans emerged in a written question to the Liturgical Commission, which prepares and promotes forms of service and religious worship in the Church, at General Synod, the Church’s lawmaking body, which is sitting this week.

Any permanent changes or rewriting of scriptures with gendered language would have to be agreed by a future meeting of Synod.

The Rev. Joanna Stobart, from the Diocese of Bath and Wells, asked what steps were being taken to offer congregants alternatives to referring to God with male pronouns and if there was any update “to develop more inclusive language in our authorized liturgy.

Are we supposed to worship God using They/Them?

This is bizarre.

A spokesman for the Church of England said: “This is nothing new. Christians have recognized since ancient times that God is neither male nor female, yet the variety of ways of addressing and describing God found in scripture has not always been reflected in our worship.

God will no longer be the Father – he will be nonbinary.  Which some argue is the doctrine of the antichrist.

The Book of Daniel speaks of the Antichrist when it states;

“He shall pay no attention to the gods of his fathers, or to the one beloved by women. He shall not pay attention to any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all.”

This has been interpreted in religious circles that the Antichrist will be by sexual, homosexual or non Binary.

Timing is everything as you may know considering a non-binary singer named Sam Smith gave literally one hell of a performance at the Grammys on Sunday.

I know that there has been a lot of talk about Sam Smith and his performance at the Grammy’s.  For those who do not know what happened — again the Grammy’s had no reason to hide their passion for Satanic imagery.  It is becoming so much of a cliche that it doesn’t even seem bold or outrageous anymore.

Smith courted controversy because his performance was viewed as a Satanic ritual as he performed wearing a top hat with Devil Horns, flames everywhere and women in cages.

The Sam Smith controversy is like any other music controversy except that it seems to be supported eerily by the Network that hosted it saying that they were ready to worship — and it was sponsored by the Big Pharma company, Pfizer.

Isn’t it comforting to know that the company that brought you the vaccine supports a performance featuring women in cages and a non-binary rock star wearing his best devil horns?

How far can one debase themselves in order to be relevant? Smith’s videos are overtly sexual prompting people to wonder if You Tine should put an X Rating or R rating on them. In one video he is seen in a corset and fishnets men apparently urinating on him.

Sam Smith in many interviews has stated that he gets anxiety attacks and how he struggles with deep depression. Can anyone answer the question as to why?

Look at his videos and look at his presentation at the Grammy’s — could this be the reason?

Back in the 1970s and 1980s when Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, KISS, and Rob Zombie embraced horror metal, we were warned that it was the work of the devil. It was just some fun horror movie theater with a good old dose of Rock And Roll.  We thought it was cartoon theater.

Our parents did not agree and we were forced to listen to preachers tell us that playing Stairway to heaven Backwards would send you on the road to Hell and KISS meant Knights in Satan’s Service.

Bands like these scared your parents and now most of them are going to hang up their platform shoes because the pop bands now exploit the devil — not in a Vincent price kind of way, but in a way that represents dark deviant behavior.

Deviant leisure or Dark Leisure is what is being promoted now as the nectar of the devil.

Sociological accounts of deviancy stress the social construction of the deviant and the social construction of deviance.

In the pop music arena, there is a theme of deviancy, that can only be explained as dark and satanic. Rebellion has always been the charge of Lucifer and deviancy is the work of the dark and perverted devil.

Those with political, social and cultural power use that power to be deviant while others label undesirable behavior and people as deviant.

It all boils down to ethical and abhorrent messages being sent to the public.

Sex and drugs and rock and roll have always been called the devils’ cocktail — but it is the basic description of old-fashioned victimless casual leisure activities in private as opposed to the Dark Leisure that promotes and exploits cross-dressing,  watching sex acts, swinging and group sex,  pornography, sexual exploitation of children, blood ritualism,  and theistic worship of devils.

Dark leisure blurs the lines of what is legal and not legal, profane and reverent.

There are many people making music for fun, for leisure.

Others make music because it is a job, and others have jobs selling that music. The rest of us listen to music, and talk about it, in our leisure time.

Some do drugs while listening and some have sex — others just stare off into space and take it all in.

But what is happening with new music today is Challenging the norms of leisure, the norms of behaviors that we try to adhere to.

Behaviors that have existed historically, and continue to shape modernity. But then what are those norms and values that are being challenged today? Challenge implies some kind of agency, some action, against the constraints of those norms and values.

Madonna gave a fierce speech before introducing Sam Smith’s so-called demonic performance.

Madonna commended ‘rebel’ artists who are ‘forging a new path and taking the heat for it all’. She praised what she called the “troublemakers.”

She donned a strong black skirt-suit and tie and two plaited pig-tails in loops, as well as a tight plait on either side of her face.

Many compared her appearance to that of the Satanic Statue that was unveiled called “Now” the so-called tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Most people did not recognize her because it is obvious that she had surgery on her face — which has made her virtually unrecognizable.

Just recently Madonna appeared on the cover of vanity fare Mocking religious iconography. Some praised her saying again that Madonna is blazing the trail again for new artists to follow – others saw it as sacrilegious.

Sam Smith took the stage with collaborator Kim Petras to sing a song called, Unholy.

Smith started the song in red leather, surrounded by a fleet of dancers that evoked Samara from “The Ring,” before cutting to Petras dancing in a cage, flanked by some dominatrices wearing satanic headgear. Smith also donned a satanic top hat, as huge flames heated up the stage.

Smith says that he is non-binary and uses the pronouns They /Them.

Smith and Petras won the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance earlier in the evening, and Petras gave a speech and indicated why the so-called Satanic performance was made.

“Sam graciously wanted me to accept this award because I’m the first transgender woman to win this award,” she said, to cheers and many of the musicians in the crowd giving her a standing ovation. “I just want to thank all of the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open before me so I could be here tonight.

Sophie, my friend who passed away two years ago, told me this would happen and always believed in me. Thank you so much for your inspiration, Sophie. I adore you, and your inspiration will forever be in my music.”

When asked about the fiery performance backstage, Petras said it was inspired by not feeling accepted by religion.

“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” she said.

“So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live because as a trans person, I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that and I was kind of hell keeper Kim.”

Smith tweeted before the show “This is going to be SPECIAL,” with a devil emoji.  CBS responded to the tweet, “….you can say that again. We are ready to worship!”

The strange tweet drew eyeballs Monday morning. Several people expressed disbelief the tweet was real while others characterized the tweet as a sign of the times.

Music video producer and director Robby Starbuck called the tweet an admission CBS was “compromised by evil.”

“This is what CBS said to Sam Smith right before he did his demonic performance as Satan. Think about that.

Conservative nonprofit media watchdog The Media Research Center asked if CBS was confirming they worshiped Satan.

“Did CBS just admit it worships Satan?” the account asked.

Independent reporter Chris Nelson called the admission “a big story.”

“I mean i think it’s a pretty big story that a TV network with a News Department that is relied on by a lot of people openly says they worship Satan. That’s kind of big don’t you think? I mean I already know this but here they are saying it,” he mocked.

Fearing a PR disaster CBS later deleted the Tweet.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz denounced the Grammy Awards as “evil” after the Unholy Performance.

Conservative podcaster Liz Wheeler, commented “demons are teaching your kids to worship Satan. I could throw up.”

She also remarked that we are told to not fight the culture wars and yet we get devil worship.

The performance drew fury from some conservatives, who in recent years have rallied around so-called “culture wars” themes, including transgender rights, and restricting the teaching of LGBTQ issues and race in classrooms.

It also tap danced on the fraying nerves of conservatives as the Satanic Temple wishes to open an Abortion clinic.

The Satanic Temple announced that it will be opening a free abortion clinic in New Mexico offering prescriptions for drugs that cause abortion.

Abortion is legal up to the point of birth in New Mexico, except in the cities of Clovis and Hobbs, which passed laws banning abortion following the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The Satanic Temple’s move is seen as an attempt to counter any restrictions on abortion in the state.

The Satanic Temple’s online clinic will provide medication abortion pills by mail to those “who wish to perform The Satanic Temple’s religious abortion ritual.”

The opening of an abortion clinic follows a series of highly publicized stunts the group has orchestrated to challenge what it sees as undue freedom of religion exercised in the public square.

According to their press release, TST “confronts religious discrimination to secure the separation of church and state and defend the constitutional rights of its members.”

Past initiatives include placing a bronze “Baphomet” statue in front of the Oklahoma Capitol to protest a statue of the Ten Commandments. The group also made headlines for hosting “After School Satan” clubs at public schools that have Christian “Good News” clubs.

The New Mexico abortion clinic will be called “The Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic,” according to The Satanic Temple’s website.

Alito is the U.S. Supreme Court justice who wrote the majority opinion for the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case in June 2022, which overturned Roe v. Wade.

The Satanic Temple wrote on its website: “In 1950, Samuel Alito’s mother did not have options. The clinic’s name serves to remind people just how important it is to have the right to control one’s body and the potential ramifications of losing that right.”

The website features an animated picture of an older woman walking into the clinic saying the words, “If only abortion was legal when I was pregnant.”

Their goal is to make abortion a religious right.

The abortion clinic has a “frequently asked questions” page, which addresses the question of abortion access for those who don’t live in New Mexico.

“Regardless of where you live, if you are in the state of New Mexico during your video consultation and when you perform your abortion ritual, you will have abided by the law,” the website says.

“However, if you travel to a state where abortion is illegal and need follow-up care, there may be some risks,” the website says.

What is happening to the world? How are we now seeing the Satanic attitudes that were once hidden in subliminal ways?

As you can probably guess this is a programming war.

Programming has always been absorbed into our culture. It is silent and seldom felt. It is used in order to rob of us of our cognitive liberty and independence. When we are children we learn reality, through our parents, teachers and in some cases, religious authorities. Environment and circumstances also have a part in programming us during our formative years, and then we mature and take responsibility for ourselves.

However, many people do not even think about taking responsibility for their cultural conditioning.

The majority of people are conditioned in the most simplistic sense with the idea of “good versus evil” and from there they make their judgments about who is good and who are the evildoers, what are good and evil choices and whether or not is right or wrong to program people into acceptance of an authoritarian policing over who or what is good or evil.

Much of what is policed by the authoritarian rule we hope is being directed away from us. This means there are others who are seen as evil or destructive and so they should be avoided, ostracized or even terminated because we have been programmed with what can be called destructive groupthink aimed at dividing people and creating chaos.

It is unpopular to throw out warnings about how divisive arguments and creating scapegoats are destructive. Warnings about self-destruction ruin the programming dialectic.

The programmers need you to develop your fear, anger, and hate, in order to give free rein to violent passion and emotion.

Churches are closing at rapid numbers in the US, researchers say, as congregations dwindle across the country and a younger generation of Americans abandon Christianity altogether – even as faith continues to dominate American politics.

As the US adjusts to an increasingly non-religious population, thousands of churches are closing each year in the country – a figure that experts believe may have accelerated after the Covid 19 Pandemic.

When we were told that what was happening, the lockdowns and the banning of worship were a plot to destroy religion as hyperbole — we are seeing how dark we can get.

About 4,500 Protestant churches closed in 2019, according to Lifeway Research. It was the first time the number of churches in the US hadn’t grown since the evangelical firm started studying the topic. With the pandemic speeding up a broader trend of Americans turning away from Christianity, researchers say the closures will only have accelerated.

Protestant pastors reported that typical church attendance is only 85% of pre-pandemic levels, McConnell said, while research by the Survey Center on American Life and the University of Chicago found that in spring 2022 67% of Americans reported attending church at least once a year, compared with 75% before the pandemic.

But while Covid-19 may have accelerated the decline, there is a broader, long-running trend of people moving away from religion. In 2017 Lifeway surveyed young adults aged between 18 and 22 who had attended church regularly, for at least a year during high school. The firm found that seven out of 10 had stopped attending church regularly.

In a time of chaos and uncertainty, when traditional belief systems no longer seem to have all the answers, more and more young people are finding comfort in Satanism.

The question is what kind of Satanism — the imagery is one thing but the practices in Dark Leisure are another.  There is a line that is often crossed that leads to darker projects and even irreverent challenges.

    AI, the Delphi of modern man knows all.

    AI predicted the start of World War III, November 23, 2023. More than Turkey’s will be roasted on Thanksgiving Day 2023.

    “The Nazi Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill The Nazi Conspiracy” a book about how Nazi special forces, Otto Skorenzy’s people would assassinate the big three in 1943, Iran. One of those books that provides untold details but starts to drag 2/3 the way through. The outcome being known makes the finish unnecessary. A good read for the historically challenged.

    After reading about AI online I opened my conspiracy book to continue my read, it was a chapter November 23,1943. Coincidence? The recent earthquake in Turkey/Syria was the biggest since 1939, a faithful year. The coincidences keep piling up. Is it me or does President Biden seem similar to Marshall Petain of France, World War II. Marshall Petain the French hero of World War I became a Nazi figurehead during the German occupation. President Biden is a pawn in someone’s game. Both men were senile when they took power. That is important.

    How did a Washington bottom feeder become president? How did Hitler achieve power? More to the point WHY? Hitler was evil, not senile.

    Petain was benign compared to Biden & Hitler.

    The world is experiencing coincidence overload. That is no coincidence.

    I learned recently that the vaccine industry uses hundreds of millions of eggs every year to produce vaccines such as flu vaccines. Now they are trying to develop an egg based covid shot. This seems like a piece of the puzzle to the egg shortage mystery. Or is something even stranger going on? Abortions, eggs and an obsession with transgender people. There may be a massive biological research and development project happening in secret. This could include cloning and genetic modification. The weird off-putting media and music industry obsession with all of this is a sign of what they are doing behind the scenes. They are getting close to their goals.
