The infiltration at the border is one of the reasons people are leaving in droves — moving from state to state and sometimes, to other countries to escape what some see as inevitable civil war in this country. Moreover, the so-called leaders of our various state and federal governments are building the infrastructure for Smart Cities to herd us into smaller and more efficient areas so we see it as practical and convenient. The reality, however, is that as we divide and create regions and districts, they are more readily able to control our daily lives. The powers that be want us to remain divided – alienated from each other based on our politics, bank accounts, religion, race, and value systems. Yet, as George Orwell observed, “The real division is not between conservatives and revolutionaries but between authoritarians and libertarians.” Tonight on Ground Zero (7-10pm, pacific time), Clyde Lewis talks with social media influencer and podcaster, Kash Kelly about EXODUS – PARTING THE RED AND THE BLUE. 



Yesterday morning I had to get up early because I was told that I had to move my car. I had to move it because of the continued construction that is being carried out in my part of town to create a 15-minute city.

They are tearing up the ground, ripping out trees, making smaller apartments, and putting in bicycle and bus lanes for non-existent bus lines that will be used when we have to surrender our fossil fuel vehicles.

I am thinking about what would be more embarrassing driving a Prius or riding a bus… The Prius is a cool car said no one.

But I started thinking about how my wife, Liam, and I were forced out of our home to make way for these new homes that are supposed to be easily hooked up to the internet of things and bathed under the blue light of surveillance.

I was reminded of how Liam and I were on lockdown as crews came in and cut down all the trees in our complex.

Now here I was being told to move my car — and I wondered. when will we be told to move again so that they can make other conditions better for the smart city?

If I had the funds I swear I would move — maybe even out of the state if I knew where I was landing, Pulling up stakes is harder when your career depends on whether or not you can find facilities near your home to broadcast — or that you need to get a place with space set aside for an area to for a broadcast.

I then thought about how I am certainly not the only one having to go through this –and I am sure there are many being forced out of their homes –or having their properties used by squatters or the homeless.

The infiltration at the border is not helping matters and people are leaving in droves — moving from state to state and sometimes to other countries to escape what some see as inevitable civil war in this country.

The so-called leaders of our various state and federal governments are thinking that everything is so complex and that they have to make way for migrants and more population that they have to make everything smaller and more compact so that we will all see it as convenient and practical.

It also means that as we divide and create regions and districts they can control our daily lives.

We are still facing restrictions, forced vaccines, lockdowns, censorship of free speech and many other things that I am sure they will more than likely enforce.

All of this looks wonderful to them. They are first told of the planet dying due to climate change, they are aware of poverty, racism, human rights and women rights violations around the world, and of course the dangers of disease, viruses, and pandemics. Then they are told their world organizations such as the UN, the WEF, and the WHO are out there to keep them safe and happy.

Just look at the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Who would argue that these are wonderful targets for a better world? End poverty, end hunger, foster gender equality, and clean water for everyone—you would have to be pretty cold not to agree the world would be a better place if these goals were achieved.

What a nice fat juicy carrot. The first sign of the stick is realizing these carrot goals are a bit too wonderful and some things of course need to be sacrificed for the greater good — like oh I don’t know — your American lifestyle.

But hey a new Utopia awaits — not that we had it good with America, with the good old USA.

Anyone who has an IQ or is over the age of 10 should understand that if the governments of the world promise a Utopia then we will be living in a Dystopia.

I mean you can all figure out how to achieve this Utopia —

Minimize your carbon footprint, buy electric cars, eat bugs, don’t travel so much, live in smart cities, take vaccines you don’t know squat about, recycle, pack it up and die, or commit suicide…” On and on and on. And that is just the beginning.

The problem here is first the unrealistic goals, that should be the first clue. But even if the goals were realistic, it is how all this is being carried out that presents the bigger problem. The goals are a ruse, a carrot, because the real goal is at the very least to create a central, unelected, unrepresentative, technocratic world government that will ultimately control every single aspect of our lives.

Not to our benefit either, it will be a world created just for a very small elite group that is in control of every minutiae of life on the planet.

We are approaching critical mass, the point at which all hell breaks loose. The government is pushing us ever closer to a constitutional crisis. We are seeing the blockades at the borders being torn down, and emergencies being declared for no obvious reason.

The government doesn’t want its abuses checked or its powers restricted. For that matter, this is not a government that holds the Constitution in high esteem.

They have plans for you –and none of them hold up to constitutional or even moral equivalents.

The reason is simple, we are nearing a point in time, where legacy systems are being taken away to reduce people to mere subjects or peasants.

The world order is in the business of depopulation, and they are also looking into moving you into smart cities that are highly controlled with advanced surveillance systems.

They are rearranging the seats on the Titanic in hopes that you do not notice the sinking ship.

In 2020 we saw the Great Resignation. Americans were fed up with their jobs for a slew of valid reasons and resigned at unseen rates. It was a powerful move by the people and it did cause companies to rethink work environments and structures. Now, post-pandemic, a record number of Americans are relocating abroad.

The top destination Americans move to is Mexico. Almost 800,000 American expats are currently in Mexico. A number higher now than ever. Young professionals and recent graduates are the most common group immigrating there.

They get our best –and if you look at the border, we get their worst.

Typically, when a country and its government or empire have been corrupted by its leaders to such a degree that it’s reaching its sell-by date, some people begin to see the writing on the wall.

Although many remain at home, complaining bitterly that their leaders are selling them out, a smaller number of people recognize that the country has passed the point of no return and make the choice to leave the dying country rather than go down with it.

It begins with an exodus from the community hoping that a change of scenery will be the answer to all of the problematic things that are happening in your neighborhood.

When that doesn’t work — the other option is to pack up your things and move to another state –and some people if they can find themselves moving to other countries — but that can also be problematic because that is where you learn that the policies of the “Free world’ are no longer applicable as leaders impose draconian laws that curtail your behavior and your ability to move about –or even live a normal life.

We’re presently passing through a period in which a significant number of people will be leaving the countries of their birth, particularly those countries that were once referred to as the “Free World.”

But, this is nothing new. For millennia, countries and, indeed, empires, have self-destructed with regularity, and, in each case, those who realize that the livability of those countries is about to end, begin their exodus. At first, they’re few; then, as the writing on the wall becomes increasingly visible, more leave. In the final stage of exodus, major events occur, making it blindingly obvious to a large percentage of the population that their place of residence is about to become considerably less livable.

In this final stage, there’s often a flood of people who attempt to exit; however, it’s often the case that, just before this time, two things occur:

First, the leaders of the country that’s in decline pass legislation that’s designed to keep their minions in, and, second, those countries that previously welcomed a small number of new residents realize that they may soon be faced with a flood of arrivals.

The exodus we are seeing is evident at the border, and what happens when there are so many people and not enough homes or places for them to stay?

They are like cuckoo birds forcing magpies out of their nests.

And, so, those who leave early and leave quietly, tend to be those who are successful, repatriating themselves to one of the countries that’s relatively freer then. They then set up shop, begin to invest and produce, and take advantage of that greater freedom.

The media won’t address the issue — because they push the immigration agenda –and are quick to call people white nationalists for demanding something be done.

The exodus, therefore becomes a marginal event, not worthy of concern or discussion.

But it is happening.

This is most unfortunate, as when, for example, much of the merchant class quietly exited Rome when it was falling, it did not merely represent the loss of a body of reliable taxpayers, it assured that, when the most productive citizens had gone, there would be no one to rebuild Rome after its decline and fall.

The result was that Rome never returned to its former glory. And this held for the Ottoman Empire, the Spanish Empire, the British Empire, and so on down the line.

The American Empire seems to be rhyming history and after over 200 years of being stable, we are now seeing the decline. The Roman Empire lasted for 300 years — we are nearly 250 years old — that doesn’t mean that we will last another 50 the way we are heading.

Americans are segregating by their politics at a rapid clip, helping fuel the greatest divide between the states in modern history.

People are leaving Blue states — for Red states and the trend does not phase the states governed by Democrats.

Between 2010 and 2020, the fastest-growing states were mostly red — places like Texas, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina. During the pandemic, that trend accelerated, and once again, most of the big population-gaining states are governed by Republicans.

More than 800,000 Californians moved out of the state in 2022, while only about half as many moved in. It is reported that people are leaving because of the High cost of housing — but I think many people are aware of the real reason.

Draconian, leftist policies of restriction.

The growing states also have fewer restrictions on home construction. That contributes to lower housing prices. The median home price in those 10 population-gaining states is an average of 23 percent less than that of the 10 biggest population-losing states.

If home is where the heart is then in the blue states, homes are in cardiac arrest.. people have no choice but to make the exodus to states that are business-friendly, have lower taxes, and provide safe and secure affordable homes.

There is also the fact that people are poorer now, as the elite class wishes to remove the middle class to create a peasant class.

As time transpires, we may find that fate could visit us, wagging a skeletal finger. In our turn, we too may be swamped by misfortune, including the many structures of big money – big banks defrauding us, foreclosures, eminent domain cast-offs, arbitrary layoffs, obscure laws favoring property classes, and bankrupting medical costs – you don’t have to look too far to find people who are being gutted and losing their ability to make ends meet.

They are eventually forced out of their homes and are pushed into a class that would beg for a time when they would have things provided for them by a government that wishes to rent everything to them.

This is the idea of the fourth industrial revolution –providing the basics where you will own nothing and be happy.

But, for the individual, it’s especially unfortunate, as the historical certainty of it informs us that it’s those who vote with their feet at such a time that create and receive the direct benefits of the next renaissance.

Unfortunately, most people have no idea what really happens when a government goes out of control, let alone how to prepare so running from place to place seems to be happening — but eventually we learn that no matter where we land — the oppression from a federal government begins to override the state and people begin to become resentful and sometimes this leads to civil upheaval.

Like in other third-world countries, civil wars break out in many areas and we begin to see shootouts, gang violence, and police presence everywhere.

The police have been equipped to become another branch of the military and as we have seen in New York subways National Guard troops are called in to keep the peace.

The Alphabet agencies like the FBI, CIA, and NSA have been weaponized by the executive branch of government to intimidate their political enemies.

Unfortunately, no matter how we change the narrative, change the characters, or change the plot lines, we seem to keep ending up in the same place that we started: enslaved, divided, and repeating the mistakes of the past.

Americans have found themselves repeatedly subjected to egregious civil liberties violations, invasive surveillance, political correctness, erosions of free speech, government spying, the criminalization of lawful activities, and warmongering.

The government has not listened to the citizenry, refused to abide by the Constitution, and treated the citizenry as the source of funding and little else.

Consequently, the state of our nation has become more bureaucratic, more debt-ridden, more violent, more militarized, more fascist, more lawless, more invasive, more corrupt, more untrustworthy, more mired in war, and more unresponsive to the wishes and needs of the people.

America’s endless global wars and burgeoning military empire—funded by taxpayer dollars—have depleted our resources, over-extended our military and increased our similarities to the Roman Empire and its eventual demise.

It is no wonder that people believe that within their lifetimes they will see the U.S. fall into civil war and constitutional crisis.

Those who leave the country believe that they are escaping to greener pastures, except that the plan for the world order is to keep everyone in subjugation.

Now we have to learn at a frantic pace for the sake of the future. We have to become preppers and be vigilant for any signs of civil clashes, which seem to be happening in small groups — but could move into neighborhoods turning people into refugees where they must leave the confines of their home.

We are living in times of fear. That fear lies hidden inside all that we witness now. It is woven into the day-to-day as if the darkness of past events has been unraveled and rethreaded into our lives.

How many times do we have to live through the latest shooting, or bombing — and how much karma are we collecting where we see the revenge of terror groups that have passed through our open borders?

Ask yourself if your home is safe from a civil war? Are you protected — are you prepared to move if necessary to escape the madness of out of control state tyranny?

No one ever thinks that they will be forced out of their home or neighborhood — or that if in the thick of a war at home their property can be seized by the government to be an out post or a facility for troops.

They can come into your home. It is called eminent domain.

They can do this because fear reigns. Whether you follow or whether you don’t depend on you.

Understand that all of these tactics and responses by governments are not essentially different than those of Stalin or Hitler or any other repressive regime historically at the time of crisis.

And everything depends on whether the human rights that were violated are given back when the crisis is over. Governments, just by being governments can be very persuasive; particularly when they own the media listened to by the majority.

How much then, do you trust your government?

You can say– that you are armed — but they are too – and they may even go door to door for the collection of firearms and they will have social groups and may even have support of the churches as they will persuade the clergy to implement their policies.

Right now, we are continuing to lose human rights such as freedom of speech. And when that goes, it all goes.

What is far more difficult to face up to is the reality of life in America, where unemployment, poverty, inequality, injustice, and violence by government agents are increasingly norms.

The powers that be want us to remain divided, and alienated from each other based on our politics, our bank accounts, our religion, our race, and our value systems. Yet as George Orwell observed, “The real division is not between conservatives and revolutionaries but between authoritarians and libertarians.”

The control is not going away. So moving away may not change anything — staying and standing your ground in developing solutions for these problems is far better.

    You nailed it tonight, Clyde! Your observations are correct. They want to heard the sheep to confinement in the Smart cities where there’s lots of cameras and audio pick up Heard people in the project effective way for control. Electric vehicles equals control…… they can shut the power off anytime you ain’t going nowhere electric cars have a limited range You’re right about getting out of the city if I lived in a city, I’d probably go crazy! Advise people to save their money sell their condos go to suburbs or rural areas. They have the same principles as you want. If you have an acre Brown, you can grow food put a greenhouse up plant some fruit trees. Berry bushes you can cultivate some ground plan a garden, canned food. Prepare yourself. I know it’s hard work but if you want to survive you’ll do it and if you’re hungry, you’ll eat a lot of things you wouldn’t eat. I advise young people and couples to get out of the city get out of apartments. Try to get away from the city violence, and all their crazy rules. All anybody wants is a peaceful life. I don’t think you can find it in big city to me. It’s nothing but a concrete jungle. The authoritarian deep state wants control the sheep, and hurt them where they want them. The first and second amendments are gone. They can do anything they want to people unless the people get sick of it and do something about it. Or fathers are turning over in their graves. The kids and young people need to read the constitution on the states and read the history of the US. Many men and women died to have what we have the freedom to move where you want to go and where you wanna go and do what you wanna do. Just a matter of time they’re gonna tell you what you gonna do and what job to do? Prepare, prepare prepare learn the ways of canning and gardening, so you can feed yourself and your loved ones. Take care enjoy your precious freedom Every day above ground is a good day.
