The Deagel Corporation analysis of population depletion from 2014 has been revisited and discussed on many online forums. According to the forecast, America’s population would plummet from just over 310 million in 2017 down to just 99 million by the end of 2025. Western European nations were forecast to see similarly drastic decreases in population, as were Canada and Australia. What is most concerning is this prediction could certainly be a guide as to who would survive a world culling. The powers-that-be will never report the truth on this and will do everything to conceal, manipulate and distort the real numbers. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with researcher, Joseph Calhoun about DEATH BECOMES U.S.





I had a request recently from a listener that wanted me to repeat the statistical data that has been gathered so far about the excess deaths and injuries that were caused by the Covid vaccines.

In the show, Near Term Extinction, I reported that in the U.S., COVID-19 vaccines injured 6.6 million people, disabled 1.36 million people, caused more than 300,000 excess deaths, and cost the economy an estimated $147 billion in damage — in 2022 alone — according to a new analysis by Humanity Projects, a wing of Portugal-based research firm, Phinance Technologies.

I am sure that in the days from when I first reported this, the statistics have grown and as we know the mortality rate in the united states is higher now post-COVID-19

Our population continues to die off and there is no report as to why this is happening.

Most intelligent people who have ignored the damage control of fact-checkers on the internet, remember that back in 2010, Bill Gates the Malthusian philanthropist dropped his famous bombshell statement.

in his TED presentation pertaining to vaccination, confirmed the following;

“And if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that [the world population] by 10 or 15 percent”.

According to Gates’ statement, this would represent an absolute reduction of the World’s population of the order 680 million to 1.02 billion.

Despite the known, clear, and incontestable failure of the vaccine to protect against infection and its known dangers, the authorities kept pushing forward with more vaccination. It made no sense whatsoever.

How did the authorities secure the cooperation of US employers, military, hospitals, and police forces to mandate Covid vaccination?

Why was it so imperative that the authorities use both government and the private sectors to coerce vaccination when the public authorities were fully aware that vaccination does not protect, but causes health injuries and deaths and spreads the virus?

Why was there no public debate about the serious threat that the Covid protocol presented to the world’s population? and finally how did scientific and medical truth become a “conspiracy theory”?

These questions remain unanswered and for those seeking a balanced answer it was a frustrating task, as suppression about how to stay alive became the law — and the self-policing of the country was equally chilling.

People literally became mesmerized puppets while others begrudgingly complied. It later became a political football which added to the disgust of the whole affair.

It went from a public health agenda to an exercise in fear management.

All contrarian views about the vaccine were silenced and our American Health care model turned into a Snake Oil Model.

The lie was in the idea that the vaccine was a cure — and those who set out to correct the lie were ostracized.

Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels, said, “if a lie is repeated enough, it becomes the truth.” And we truly lived this omen of lies for truth for many decades and very intensely throughout the last 3 years,

Now the climate change and biodiversity loss lies are being fed into the zeitgeist, a key instrument for our enslavement through total control.

Biodiversity is technocratic talk for eliminating those who do not fit their criteria as a human being — Climate change of the climate crisis is a cover for global sustainability.

The proposition of Year Zero began with the UN Agenda 2030, earlier called Agenda 21 – WHO’s “Decade of Vaccination”, meaning also a decade of massive population reduction, of a well-planned and orchestrated mass genocide; of the Great Reset, supposedly leading to 10 years to Klaus Schwab’s infamous slogan – “You will own nothing but will be happy”.

It was the year set aside for the beginning of criminal activity that has no name. Its gravity behooves an expression way beyond “atrocity”.

Mind you, it was prepared by the hidden hand.

Those who have not been touched by it, cannot imagine. Those who are suffering from it, many of them cannot speak or express themselves anymore. And many who would like to speak out are censored, or otherwise silenced.

That’s the extent of the monstrosity that descended on us– and people aren’t even aware as long as they think that their political choices are making them free.

But politics is ugly and people are now devolving into splintered opinions and division exists even among the political parties.

But the Tyranny goes even deeper as dark plans are afoot and people must realize that the COVID pandemic was a dress rehearsal for what is coming.

All of the globalist policies over the last three years are driving toward one thing, mass depopulation. Yes, they have always wanted to wipe out a lo of the population for their agenda of reductionist science. Until you understand that, you will never understand what’s going on. You will never make sense of it.

Those who live in denial will get duped, again. Many of those duped the first time lost their lives, or ended up with life-long health issues. Some even offered their children to the military-biomedical-security complex.

Recently, a journalist named Leo Hohmann reflected back to a 2014 Deagel Corporation analysis of population depletion.

Deagel’s founder was a military contractor who had sources well positioned in the deep state. The Deagel Corporation is an offshoot of US military intelligence which collects data for high-level decision-makers and prepares confidential briefing documents for agencies like the National Security Agency, the United Nations and the World Bank.

According to the Deagel forecast, America’s population would plummet from just over 310 million in 2017 down to just 99 million by the end of 2025. Western European nations, especially the U.K. and Germany, were forecast to see similarly drastic decreases in population, as were Canada and Australia.

If the Deagel calculations turn out to be even close to accurate, the most unsafe places to live over the next three years will be the United States, Canada and the U.K., followed by Germany, Australia and the rest of the E.U. nations.

This population forecast was so controversial, showing population reductions of 68.5 percent in the United States (from 2017 levels) and between 25 and 70 percent for almost every Western European country, that the study mysteriously disappeared from Deagel’s website in March 2021.

But not all areas of the world will continue to decline. Some will actually have larger populations by 2025, according to the Deagel forecast. The safest places to be living would appear to be Central and South America, China and Africa. Interestingly, Russia came in as neutral, not gaining or losing population.

What is most concerning is that this prediction could certainly be a guide as of who would survive a world culling. It could be all about the further deadly side effects of the vaccine — or even more chilling — the results of a massive die off after World War Three.

The surviving population may be either chipped by the end of ten years (2030), or otherwise transhumanized, mind manipulable – most likely through the massive introduction of 5G ultra-shortwaves, in combination with the toxicity of graphene oxide or other highly magnetic and often deadly concoctions that the public is being exposed to.

The worldwide 5G network is also a key instrument to develop and advance Klaus Schwab’s 4th Industrial Revolution, the digitization of everything, including our brains, every record of our most intimated details of our lives, and our money – all, especially the latter, is already in process in most of Europe and to some extent also in the US.

A digital ID will allow the tyrants to trace your every step, as well as your environmental footprint. If your “e-footprint” is considered too large, you may be warned, and eventually punished – your digital bank account may be turned off, or reduced or blocked. Whatever the “authorities” choose to do to make you submissive.

And before I forget the forever agenda of climate change and biodiversity .

The climate change hoax and depopulation agenda has a long history. They are a symbiotic entity that are again part of the unseen enemy used for psychological warfare.

It started with the Club of Rome which was created in 1968, basically as a Rockefeller idea, by this trio Aurelio Peccei, Alexander King, and David Rockefeller.

The Club of Rome published the book, Limits to Growth. The book warned that the Earth’s resources would not be able to support the exponential rates of economic and population growth and would collapse before the end of this century.

Having said this, the last century has come and gone – and the world has not collapsed. Nevertheless, the same people and their successors keep saying today, in 2023, that the message of this book still holds.

They pretend that the earth’s interlocking resources – the global system of nature in which we all live – probably cannot support present rates of economic and population growth much beyond the year 2100, if that long, even with advanced technology.

Hardly anybody who lives today will be alive in 2100 to testify whether they are right or wrong. But as past records indicate – they will be dead wrong… and We, the People, have to be aware of the built-in lie, of whatever comes out of the Club or Rome climate and depopulation predictions. Mind you and be aware, such forecasts serve the elite of the rich and powerful.

Such statements are clearly setting the stage for justifying a massive depopulation genocide, the beginning of which we are experiencing since the start of the Decade 2020. Depopulation and massive deindustrialization were the motives for a false pandemic, into which the world has been plunged.

The result is a wave of massive bankruptcies, unemployment misery and death – as well as death from an intense campaign of coercive “vaccination”; not from covid, but from injections that have nothing to do with disease prevention.

This, in the meantime, is even admitted by the perpetrators, including the pharma industry which extracted, or stole, billions and billions of dollars from public treasuries for vaxxes that are part of the biodiversity agenda.

Amazingly, so far, they have gotten away with it. They will continue to get away with it unless the people wake up to what is happening.

If you add in the rising potential for another manufactured pandemic, a manufactured global famine under the guise of fighting “climate change,” and the race toward World War III, and suddenly Deagel’s forecast becomes even more plausible.

Deagel’s predictions seemed so far-fetched in 2014 that some folks accused Deagel of engaging in a psy op. But maybe Deagel had good sources to back up its analysis. After all, the eugenics-loving Rockefeller Foundation had published its “Lockstep” analysis in 2010, all but guaranteeing those major pandemics would wipe out tens of millions of people, and Bill Gates, the world’s richest man, was well into his vaccine phase by 2014 as well, having shifted his focus a few years earlier away from computers and into the more profitable injections.

We also had the Georgia Guidestones to serve as a continuous reminder of the elites’ plan to drastically reduce the global population, to cull the herd, as they say.

The first “guideline” etched in the Georgia Guidestones monument stated “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature,” representing a reduction of more than 90 percent of the earth’s people in a typical Malthusian manner. That’s a goal that seemed outrageous until the full scope of the deadly side effects from the vaccine — and now the continued war in Europe.

We are waiting for the escalation and the possible nuclear threat that would certainly wipe out millions of people if achieved.

The Guidestones were mysteriously bombed in the early morning hours of July 6, 2022. Just hours later, at around 6 p.m. on July 6, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation completely destroyed the damaged monument.

This was an astonishing turn of events executed with lightning speed and then the state’s bizarre action quickly fell off the news cycle.

Nobody was ever arrested and we hear nothing about any continuing investigation. Did it become necessary to get rid of the granite monument that stood as a testimony to the elites’ plan for mass depopulation of the world?

No matter, humanity is being culled, whether we like it or not.

The globalists need to kill us off in order to fully enslave those who remain. Why?

Because they have two basic disadvantages in their war against humanity. First, they are vastly outnumbered, and, second, many of us still have the ability to think critically and independently of what we hear or see on their totally owned and controlled media outlets.

Henry Kissinger who will turn 100 years old on May 27th once declared that “Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the Third World, because the U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries.”

This brings us back to Bill Gates — yet another psychopath who cavorts and contrives with the murderous Henry Kissinger and his WEF cronies. Gates might see himself as up to the task of providing Kissinger with the “technological innovations” that might reduce the globe’s human population.

When Klaus Schwab established the World Economic forum he took his cues from the Club of Rome which once concluded:

“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together.

But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself. “

It is no surprise that with such a conclusion, part of the solution prescribed was the need for population control.

However, what forms of population control was Klaus Schwab in particular thinking of?

In the late 1960s, Schwab attended Harvard and among his teachers was Henry Kissinger, whom he has described as among the top figures who have most influenced his thinking over the course of his life.

To get a better idea of the kinds of influences Henry Kissinger had on young Klaus Schwab, we should take a look at Kissinger’s infamous NSSM-200 report: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for US Security and Overseas Interests, otherwise known as “The Kissinger Report,” published in 1974. This report, declassified in 1989, was instrumental in transforming US foreign policy from pro-development/pro-industry to the promotion of under-development through totalitarian methods in support of population control. Kissinger states in the report:

… “if future numbers are to be kept within reasonable bounds, it is urgent that measures to reduce fertility be started and made effective in the 1970s and 1980s …[Financial] assistance will be given to other countries, considering such factors as population growth … Food and agricultural assistance is vital for any population sensitive development strategy … Allocation of scarce resources should take account of what steps a country is taking in population control … There is an alternative view that mandatory programs may be needed

For Kissinger, the US foreign policy orientation was mistaken on its emphasis of ending hunger by providing the means of industrial and scientific development to poor nations, according to Kissinger, such an initiative would only lead to further global disequilibrium as the new middle classes would consume more, and waste strategic resources.

As a staunch Malthusian, Kissinger believed that “nature” had provided the means to cull the herd, and by using economic policies that utilized the courting and planning of a massive plague, famine and so forth, they were simply enforcing a natural hierarchy which was required for global stability.

If the globalists are following the charge of Kissinger and the Club of Rome–they would cull the population and reduce the level at which they are outnumbered, and they would poison those of us who remain so that we are weakened and unable to think critically and independently, at least not to the level that we could organize any meaningful resistance.

Kissinger also cited infertility stats in his report, encouraging birth control and now the idea of confused sexual orientations.

Seizing sexual dysphoria and encouraging sex change operations in Children creates a loll in childbirth rates.

U.S. birth rates are in free fall, as are global birth rates. In 2021, birth rates were the lowest since World War I in the U.S., with Russia, China, and all the European countries similarly reporting a dearth of new babies being born. Sperm counts in men have fallen to the lowest level since such things started being measured.

You cannot find a straight answer anywhere as to why this is happening.

In the academic journal known as “Social Theory and Practice” a memo entitled “Population Engineering and the Fight against Climate Change” by Colin Hickey, Travis N. Rieder, and Jake Earl states clearly the objective of the Powers that be and their agenda of population engineering and what it means to everybody.

In the published memo it states:

“There are two important considerations that favor including population engineering as part of the global policy response to the threat of dangerous climate change. First, the current consensus approach to mitigating climate change, which does not include population engineering, falls short of offering a clear and reasonably certain pathway to avoiding dangerous climate change. Second, reducing global population growth over the next century would have a truly massive effect on global Greenhouse gas emissions.”

Furthermore, it says:

“While reducing fertility in developing nations is important, since their per capita GHG emissions are projected to increase significantly (and should be allowed to do so) over the next several decades, it is not nearly as critical as near-term reductions in the numbers of the world’s wealthy. Although it would be difficult to lower the fertility rate in the United States from 1.9 to, say, 1.4, such a reduction would have a massive impact on both near-term and long-term global GHG emissions—much more even than proportionally larger fertility reductions in sub-Saharan Africa.46 But this raises a question: Why bother to reduce fertility in developing nations at all? If the United States and other developed nations are the real problem, then our efforts, surely, ought to focus exclusively on reducing their numbers.

But this is also too simplistic. Many of the world’s poor are becoming richer, and all of the rest ought to become richer. That is, it is both descriptively true that many of the world’s poor will have higher per capita GHG emissions as a result of economic development over the next century, and normatively true that they ought to be allowed to develop this way.47 But the details concerning climate change and demographics in the previous sections make clear that Earth cannot sustain a significantly larger population of wealthier individuals.”

And finally, the way to intervene is to use coercion or change the cultural norms regarding having healthy and happy families.

“Sitting to the right of choice-enhancing interventions on the coercion spectrum is a category of interventions aimed at adjusting preferences to encourage people to have fewer children. The policies in this category work by changing cultural norms and influencing individuals’ beliefs and desires, with the ultimate goal of changing procreative behaviors in the direction of lower fertility. These changes could be achieved through mass media such as radio and TV content, billboards, poster campaigns, leaflet distribution, folk theater or other artist sponsorship, campaigns or assemblies in public schools, funding for public lectures, etc.”

There is more, but it is very terrifying; what is equally terrifying is that it appears this agenda is underway, not only do they want fertility rates to plummet, but our life expectancy is also plummeting.

According to the Epoch Times newspaper, life expectancy has fallen for the second time in two years—from a high of 78.9 years in 2014 to 78.6 years in 2016. And it fell across the board — for men and women, whites, blacks, and Hispanics. Statistics show that thousands were preventable, premature deaths.

Life expectancy is not supposed to fall in countries that are this rich, spend this much on health, and pride themselves on taking care of each other. As a demographer working in a school of public health, I am astounded by the complacency at the loss of so many Americans in the prime of life.

The powers-that-be will never report the truth on this, and will do everything to conceal, manipulate and distort the real numbers. So all we can do is crunch everything we know to determine the progress of their goal – 500 million humans left on Earth by 2030.

    Why can’t mainstream news sites and other media report the truth? The Insurance Industry data alone should alarm the nation, and get them to at least reconsider shooting mRNA’s into our children! Speaking of children, a very close relation who shares everything with me has lost four pregnancies since her first mandatory Covid experimental shot. She has not had any more shots, and doesn’t want her living child to have any, but the school is insisting, or he can’t start school! How can we fight this insanity? Why do we, who can see the truth, end up being called the crazy people? This shot has never prevented Covid. My not getting one didn’t make me give it to my grandmother. No! She got it from all the people who stood with her in her care home, getting the unconstitutional shot! As soon as she got sick with Covid, I took her out of there and cared for her in my home. I never allowed her to be hooked up to a ventilator. I never wore a mask, and I never got Covid. She got well on my chicken soup and love, and I told her to never have another booster shot, which made her so very ill. Every one of the old people in her home who got the shot, got Covid. The one hold-out who was lucid enough to refuse it never got Covid. He’s the only one still alive from there, plus my grandmother, who never went back. She’s convinced the evil people in power will put an mRNA in her flu shot now, so she won’t get it, or any other shots.
    I noticed Fauci’s “10% margin” comment was reread to stress in full, “for an individual who religiously wears a mask, a well-fitted KN95 or N95, it’s not at the margin. It really does work.”
    As if anyone can even breathe in those ridiculous masks!

    I have heard that Red China is losing population, whil(est) India is gaining population, surpassing Red China in population.
    Also , my feed of your stream is cutting out. Is anybody else reporting this to you, Clyde?

    Russia has ir had been losing population for a fairly long time, dating to well before the collapse and break up of the SOVIET UNION; not to mention all the men who fled Russia since Vladimir Putin re-instituted the draft, plus it seems my feed has cut out, again.
