New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced the deployment of the National Guard, New York State Troopers, and the Metropolitan Transit Authority to help with the city police due to the increased amount of crime in the subway system. Some citizens feel threatened to have those in military fatigues and carrying big guns going through their bags and briefcases. Is this necessary or is it another indication that we are living in the New Normal which consists of a Garrison State? Moreover, the new surveillance technologies are omnipresent systems of mass social control, repression, and warfare promoted by the ruling elite to contain rebellion from the working class and surplus humanity.  Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about FRENEMY FIRE – LIFE IN A GARRISON STATE.



I was looking through the New York Post yesterday and I had a sick sense of Deja vu. Something that reminded me of the Dirty War in South America where a militarized police would stand guard on street corners with military-issued firearms.

There was even a time when I witnessed a woman who had stolen tangerines from a vegetable store, She ran away but was no match for the military gunman and so she was shot and killed.

Her body lunged forward, and her false teeth flew out of her mouth. She lay there bleeding out with a blue tarp covering her.

Again seeing something like that made me miss my country, a country that stood for freedom and not brutality — but now times have changed.

There was a story published in the Post about how New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced on Wednesday that she would deploy 750 members of the National Guard, 250 state troopers, along with officers from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to assist city police with bag searches.

News organizations were showing video clips of a military garrison, men in military fatigues holding M-16s.

It follows a series of high-profile crimes on city trains in recent years, including an attack last week on a train conductor, who was slashed in the neck by an unknown assailant.

Some commuters said they felt safer after learning that heavily armed soldiers would patrol the subway system. Others were critical of the governor’s plan.

Public officials are battling a perception that the system is dangerous, even though crime rates fell in the subway last year. The number of major crimes in the transit system then jumped in January before declining again in February.

In making her announcement on Wednesday, Ms. Hochul framed the law enforcement surge as something that would help commuters and visitors feel safer.

But many feel something else — and that is intimidation — crime is now so bad on the subways in New York that they need a Garrison to fight crime.

Many still don’t understand the overreach and suspect something worse is afoot.

Some feel threatened to have someone in military fatigues carrying a big gun rifling through their bags and briefcases.

The question is whether or not this is necessary or is this yet another indication that we are now living in a new normal that consists of a Garrison state.

The police state has become particularly adept at sidestepping the Fourth Amendment, empowered by advances in surveillance technology and emboldened by rapidly expanding public-private partnerships between law enforcement, the Intelligence Community, and the private sector.

We are not supposed to be living in a “show me your papers” society. Despite this, the U.S. government has introduced measures allowing police and other law enforcement officials to stop individuals citizens and noncitizens alike, demand they identify themselves, and subject them to pat downs, warrantless searches, and interrogations.

It is well documented that Mega City operations have been carried out all over the country and there have been many states that were singled out as troublesome cities or areas that may be of some trouble during a mass insurrection.

Cable splicer, REX-84, and Garden Plot are code-named operations that have been in place since the Reagan administration.

Operation Garden Plot was a general U.S. Army and National Guard plan to respond to major domestic civil disturbances within the United States. The plan was developed in response to the civil disorders of the 1960s and is now under the control of the U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM). It provides Federal military and law enforcement assistance to local governments during times of major civil disturbances.

Garden Plot was last activated as operation Noble Eagle to provide military assistance to civil authorities following the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. The Pentagon also activated it to restore order during the 1992 Los Angeles Riots.

Many people may recall that in the Summer of 2008, black helicopters were flying over major US Cities. The military claimed that these exercises were necessary in order to train pilots for recon and rescue missions in middle eastern cities.

The plan also included protocols on how to deal with people who are detained during possible uprisings.

In one briefing it was said that the training was not for Middle Eastern Cities but for the United States. They were developing solutions to quelling civil unrest for a future event.

The solutions proposed include the division of the county into 10 sections with each section having regional detainment camps provided by the Department of Homeland Security.

Back when President Obama signed of executive order addendums known as the National Defense Resources Preparedness Order, people were suspicious that he would install a dictatorship under his command. He then said that he signed it not for him but for a future president.

I wonder if he knew which future President? Could it have been Hillary Clinton? — and Trump I am sure derailed their plot — and now we see it is President Biden.

Now we see that the idea of a Garrison state is now being tried in New York — how soon will this program be installed in other major left-governed cities and states?

When will we see the first fatality or all out war between the military and the police — or the military, police and the people?

Aren’t we risking a preemptive attack because of the overreach and the firepower — could this be seen as a mini-war declared on the citizens of New York?

What if troops were to march through your city inspecting your homes for guns or anti-government propaganda? Again sidestepping the fourth amendment for a phantom threat.

If you recall there was a report that was submitted to President Johnson in the 1960s called the Iron Mountain report which argued that though world peace was a nice idea, the economy of war was such a vital part of global stability that there had to be other crisis that would have to be generated to fill the “ceasefires and “peacetime” so that governments could profit and maintain their wealth. The proposal was to provide alternative “terrors” or crises that would prepare the world for the establishment of a United Nation’s world government.

The report was literally a blueprint of proposed manufactured crises that the government could employ during peacetime in order to keep the war and military busy and the people demanding protection from threats. The report claimed that a gradual implementation of such crises would guarantee the need for basic social controls.

Some believe that the proposals in the report have been employed for over 50 years conditioning the American people for acceptance of a New World Order.

The report detailed ways to create or manufacture crises that could be substituted for war, literally a way to keep the military in business due to public demand over the fear of being harmed or killed.

The Report from Iron Mountain also proposes that the United States be disarmed and it will be carried out in three stages. Internal security forces provided by the United Nations will honor and enforce a treaty that will be signed where guns must be surrendered by citizens to maintain peace.

The process was proposed to include mass surveillance, door-to-door confiscation, and mass arrest for those who do not comply.

The Iron Mountain Report also states that for this to happen there will also have to be a focus on religious authority and their ability to convince their flocks to follow the law. However, there is also a section that states that if the religious authorities rebel there would have to be a way to expose religious organizations as corrupt and this way there would be no agonizing over the moral obligations of a government to religious freedom.

If religious groups or churches do not comply with the obligations of disarmament, then they will be exposed as corrupt and there will be violence between sectarian factions.

Think of it as the Romans 13 clause.

In Romans 13:1-7 the Apostle Paul is straight forward. Christians are to submit to the government, full stop.

Christians may sometimes be forced to obey God rather than men, but can they be architects of civil disorder?

Megacity operations are counting on what they call Christian Nationalist rebellion. They are already naming MAGA extremists as the strike force for a civil clash.

But if Trump wins the 2024 election we can figure out where the extremists will come from — but will they be violent and will they be big enough to maintain a Garrison state or even force the government to declare martial law?

While individuals can commit atrocious crimes on their own, states and corporations, by their size, money and influence, can magnify the size of serious crimes exponentially. International crimes are committed on a scale much larger than retail crime committed by individuals or local criminal organizations. The Holocaust is six million times worse than a single homicide in New York City.

And yet the military now lurks in the subway — and intimidation move the give the impression that yes fine citizens — you now live in a gulag.

As the enforcer of domestic law, the state has the obligation to lead by example and follow international law if it expects its citizens respect its law enforcement at home. It is not possible to break the law abroad while claiming moral authority inside the country’s borders. Why should anyone listen to someone who says: “Do as I say, not as I do?”

If you don’t believe that your government is not afraid of the election results — just remember how many troops were called to duty for Biden’s inauguration.

Local and federal security officials called out 20,000 National Guard members to be involved in securing Washington, D.C., for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration—this was unprecedented.

Today, we are witnessing the nudging and manipulation of the population to accept a ‘new normal’ based on a climate emergency narrative, High crime levels, restrictions on movement and travel, programmable digital money, ‘pandemic preparedness’ courtesy of the World Health Organization’s tyrannical pandemic treaty, unaccountable AI and synthetic ‘food’.

Whether it involves a ‘food transition’, an ‘energy transition’, 15-minute cities or some other benign-sounding term, all this is to be determined by a supranational ‘stakeholder’ elite with ordinary people sidelined in the process.

An undemocratic agenda designed to place restrictions on individual liberty, marking a dramatic shift towards authoritarianism.

We are currently seeing another ideological shift: individual rights and freedoms are said to undermine the wider needs of society and the planet – in a stark turnaround – personal freedom is now said to pose a threat to national security, public health or the climate.

During our show that exposed the plans to use direct energy weapons and active denial weapons on civilians the topic worked it’s way into revealing what are called megacity operations that would bring out the big guns for a police state or garrison state.

This is in preparation for the possibility of an outright rebellion from the people after the 2024 election — no matter who wins the military and the UN armies are on the ready to bring order from the chaos.

These plans have been in place since the Reagan administration, where armies are trained to shoot civilians if necessary to bring order to cities that have been taken over by domestic terrorists.

However, the very term “domestic terrorist” is relative because in a police state operation, everyone is suspect and law enforcement goes from being a servant of the people to a militarized task force.

With new technologies, we are seeing more omnipresent systems of mass social control, repression and warfare promoted by the ruling groups to contain the real and the potential rebellion of the global working class and surplus humanity.

The system is simply unable to incorporate surplus humanity it turns to ever more violent forms of containment. They have opened the borders for a reason — and this reason can be connected to the possibility of civil upheaval — we have been in the position as a country to wonder about a possible civil war at the border –as many states have raised up local armies to protect the border from criminal elements set out to destroy America from within.

This has raised some fear on social platforms about a movie that will be released next month called Civil War. As far back as December there were worries that this film would be some cruel predictive programming as social cohesion in this country hangs by a thread.

The Alex Garland film is sparking discussion about its release during a contentious election year– and with what most people do not know about the megacity’s preparation for an all-out insurgence.

Civil War hasn’t been seen yet by the media or audiences (its world premiere is next week at the South by Southwest Film & TV Festival), so criticism of its content is arguably premature and — at a minimum — lacks considerable context.

You may remember that the film “Joker” got the same treatment as there were reports by the media that it would trigger incel attacks. It can be argued that the film was a prelude to the Antifa mobs that were present after the George Floyd incident.

The bulk of such reactions to Civil War seems to come from the left side of the political spectrum, and their take goes like this: Regardless of the film’s (presumably pro-unity) message, the film is uncomfortably timely and its “us vs. us” warfare will become MAGA fantasy fuel.

Left-wing conspiracy theorists have these wild fantasies about a group of Timothy McVeighs out there who will think that the movie is exactly what this country needs’ … They claim that the potential danger is that right-wing groups are not known for media literacy or nuance. And a psychotic gang of rednecks committing terrorism [in the film] to ‘own the libs’ might be obvious criticism to us but might be interpreted as a role model to MAGA groups if not portrayed carefully.’”

Wow– so it sounds as if the left is fully aware of how much they have pushed the envelope expecting an all-out attack from Trump Supporters.

While civil war hand-wringing might sound like fringe thinking, a 2022 poll by YouGov and the Economist found that 40 percent of Americans believe a new civil war is “at least somewhat likely in the next 10 years.” A Zogby poll found similar sentiments. That number drops to 14 percent when you only include those who “strongly” believe it.

Civil war fears are enough of a concern that The New York Times has held a debate on the topic, while Politico announced in a recent headline that “the threat of civil breakdown is real.” Historians assure that an actual civil war “is really unlikely,” though one worrisomely added, “There are so many bad things that can happen well short of civil war.”

The media, both the nonfiction and fictional factions have created the “what if…” scenarios of disruption, meaning what if there is a coup? What if there is an assassination attempt or a decapitation exercise where many authorities are unable to continue to serve the nation?

A lot of people may not know it, but there is a way to anticipate what’s going to happen in the future. It’s not perfect, but it helps you make educated guesses about what’s next. It’s called “History,” and no one in our ruling class or even in the consensus has ever heard of it.

There are already plans that are ready to be implemented that will slow down and eliminate any insurgency and any president would be compelled to use those powers to ensure the continuity of government.

The ultimate goal is to create a Deep State-compliant government.

Engineered protest movements are carefully planned. They are intelligence ops. They use non-governmental organizations to recruit protesters.

Revolution and civil war like anything else nowadays is a business.

It is all part of the Build Back Better enterprise where your government encourages groups to break stuff, burn down stuff, and yes even kill stuff — to harden the resolve of those that want full spectrum control — and order over freedom.

Everyone needs to understand that the ruling elite in the US are implementing a decision to redefine democracy in a way that eliminates democracy, makes Congress superfluous, voting pointless, and discards the Constitution as an outdated document inconsistent with the power the ruling elite intends to wield over Americans and the rest of the world.

The decision has been made to redefine democracy from the will of the people to protect “the sanctity of democratic institutions.” Precisely, what are “democratic institutions”? They are not the institutions, such as Congress and representative government or the rule of law and an independent judiciary, that we currently regard as democratic institutions.

Democratic institutions” are the institutions of the censorship industry, such as the military/security complex, State Department, NATO, CIA, FBI, IMF, World Bank, NGOs, the Atlantic Council, the Aspen Institute, Black Rock, JP Morgan/Chase and other of the consensus-building institutions that set agendas and control the narratives.

To express disagreement with the consensus these elite institutions build is considered to be “an attack on democracy.” In other words, “democracy” is the property of the elite institutions, and the sanctity of these elite institutions must be protected from the people defined by Hillary Clinton as “the Trump deplorables.” The will of the people is eliminated from the picture.

It might surprise you, but universities and major corporations especially tech companies and social media, law schools, medical associations, and governors and members of Congress associated with the WEF accept the redefinition of democracy that excludes the will of the people. They also agree that the Constitution is inconsistent with the power they intend to wield over citizens.

The decision has been made, and it is currently being implemented. It means that suppression will be used to convert the entirety of the Internet and social media into a propaganda ministry serving official narratives. All of the hope that libertarians had of the freedom to speak that the Internet would provide has turned out to be unrealistic.

People say it can’t happen here — it is happening here with government overreach creating an intimidating Garrison state.

Gullible and naive Americans that trust the government are experts at fleeing from unsettling bad news. Thus, they pave their path to tyranny.

Tyranny is easy to establish over people who have confidence in their government and political party The more politically divided the population is, the more susceptible it is to deception and betrayal by the government. Try telling patriots what is happening to them, and they will only tell you that the answer is Trump.

No, that answer is You — and how you deal with the criminal element taking part in the controlled demolition of the republic.

We have been taught that America is exceptional and indispensable, so how can anything go wrong?

Well, it can, because we are being told that we are no longer special — and that the borders are open for anyone, and that American life is an entitlement –and so not only are the innocent being lied to — but the criminal element feels entitled.

And so government officials are forced to place a military garrison in high-crime areas.

Consequently, the criminalization of truth is rushing ahead. Even the word “truth” is slated to become a hate word that cannot be spoken.

Check out new legislation in Canada and Washington state that can have you jailed for perceived hate speech — praying may be against the law in Canada — can we even believe that we are addressing these issues when they should be fundamental rights?

There are more US government agencies committed to the death of the First Amendment than you have ever heard of–you find many surprises in the rabbit hole — and as you do you begin to realize that you will have to learn how to cope with your new occupation of a Garrison or Police State.

    Good show tonight, Clyde! Things and getting any better. Darn shame that things can’t be the way they used to be. Crime rate is soaring. I don’t believe they need National Guard or federal troops to watch a subway.. I border New York, and it must be pitiful. It’s very hard to get a conceal weapons permit in New York State. I can’t believe that the regular police force can’t handle it. I advise anybody in New York to try to get a concealed weapons permit. Before it’s too late……. United States are starting to get like a Third World country . Our forefathers are turning over in their graves.. I believe it’s just a matter of time that the federal government declares martial law. Law abiding citizens will have to firearms. Just like Nazi Germany, Japan, Russia, and China.. More more and more Chinese an illegal aliens are coming across the border. They could cause a lot of damage when they get into our nuclear power plants, water supplies, and electrical systems. Prepare, prepare prepare.! Take care every day above Ground a good day.
