With the destruction of the economy, a new system looks enticing. Congruently, many are wondering why they are pushing a digital currency with such expediency. The inevitability of a cashless system with more control over your increase and wealth is all part of the Great Reset with digital money that can be tracked and even taken from you for bad behavior. The World Economic Forum hopes their engineered crisis will lead to us begging for a digital police state. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with financial expert, Alan Johnson about A FIST FULL OF DIGIDOLLARS. 





Last night about halfway through the show, I found myself becoming emboldened. I felt an energy in me that I did not think I had but did and I was hoping that it sounded encouraging even though I was trying to reveal the threat of a Marxist tale over in our part of the multiverse.

I was thinking that there are many things we can do to liberate ourselves, and each other, from the tyranny of government. Unfortunately, for generations, we have been educated to believe we are powerless.

This is a deception. We have all the power; the government has none and we can change the world whenever we choose.

All we need to do is realize our collective agency and strength. The good news is that, if we consistently work toward freedom, achieving it is a nailed-on certainty. The bad news is that very few of us are even aware of the need to change our behavior and fewer still know how to do it.

Our broad lack of awareness leaves us at the mercy of those who do understand how to misuse behavior change techniques and applied psychology for nefarious purposes. This mistreatment has led a sizeable minority to rail against applied behavioral psychology. Yet should we decide to use these strategies ourselves, the potential for positive social change is immense.

We just need to identify how we are being manipulated through a little something called problem, reaction, solution.

Agent’s provocateurs set up the story and media lackeys dutifully follow: They push their fear agenda and then people end up responding without critical thinking,

Fear throws logic out the window.

It is like they induce hypochondria — it’s an unfortunate state of affairs, when one has to assume the majority of what passes for a society nowadays will need to be treated as recovering drug addicts and alcoholics in order to elicit any sense from them.

It is a by the book technique to manipulate you into demanding something that has been predetermined to deliver you from suffering.

This solution is given by the person or group that has made you suffer in the first place.

Deprogramming takes time – and maybe we are beyond that now.

In 1847, the London Communist League (Karl Marx and Frederick Engels) used Hegel’s Theory of the Dialectic to back up their economic theory of Communism. Now, in the 21st century, Hegelian-Marxist thinking affects our entire social and political structure. The Hegelian dialectic is the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution. If we do not understand how the Hegelian dialectic shapes our perceptions of the world, then we do not know how we are helping to implement the vision. When we remain locked into dialectical thinking, we cannot see out of the box.

Hegel’s dialectic is the tool which manipulates us into a frenzied circular pattern of thought and action. Every time we fight for or defend against an ideology we are playing a necessary role in Marx and Engels’ grand design to advance humanity into a dictatorship of the proletariat.

The synthetic Hegelian solution to all these conflicts can’t be introduced unless we all take a side that will advance the agenda. The Marxist’s global agenda is moving along at breakneck speed. The only way to completely stop the privacy invasions, expanding domestic police powers, land grabs, insane wars against inanimate objects (and transient verbs), covert actions, and outright assaults on individual liberty, is to step outside the dialectic. This releases us from the limitations of controlled and guided thought.

When we understand what motivated Hegel, we can see his influence on all of our destinies. Hegelian conflicts steer every political arena on the planet, from the United Nations to the major American political parties, all the way down to local school boards and community councils. Dialogues and consensus-building are primary tools of the dialectic, and terror and intimidation are also acceptable formats for obtaining the goal.

The ultimate Third Way agenda is world government. Once we get what’s really going on, we can cut the strings and move our lives in original directions outside the confines of the dialectical madness. Focusing on Hegel’s and Engel’s ultimate agenda, and avoiding getting caught up in their impenetrable theories of social evolution, gives us the opportunity to think and act our way toward freedom, justice, and genuine liberty for all.

Today the dialectic is active in every political issue that encourages taking sides. We can see it in environmentalists instigating conflicts against private property owners, in democrats against republicans, in greens against libertarians, in communists against socialists, in neo-cons against traditional conservatives, in community activists against individuals, in pro-choice versus pro-life, in Christians against Muslims, in isolationists versus interventionists, in peace activists against war hawks. No matter what the issue, the invisible dialectic aims to control both the conflict and the resolution of differences, and leads everyone involved into a new cycle of conflicts.

When you speak about a shadow government, you have to tread lightly since no one can really pinpoint who is in the background dictating policy. We always tend to think of some noir-type of control, with shadowy figures in smoke-filled rooms meeting somewhere in Switzerland. While the romanticism can entertain the conspiracy-minded, the shadow government conducts its business openly with a few of the same players.

Now we have the World Economic Forum, the IMF and the World Bank that wishes to design scarcity in order to create the problem where people demand a solution and that solution is already on the ready — all you have to do is welcome it and let it happen.

With the destruction of the economy, a new system looks enticing.

If you glance at the headlines today you will see that your cash is becoming worthless. Your cryptocurrencies have taken a dive. The stock market is ailing.

Americans are more likely today than they were a year ago to report being “very” or “moderately worried” about several aspects of their finances, reversing the progress that they thought they were making after we were approaching the finish line with COVID-19.

People’s concern has increased the most about paying their monthly bills (up eight percentage points to 40%) and maintaining the standard of living they enjoy (up seven points to 52%). But concern has also increased, by five points, on paying one’s rent or mortgage (35%), making minimum payments on credit cards (22%) and having enough money for retirement (63%).

Inflation affects more than consumer spending and stock prices; it is causing anxiety among Americans about meeting their daily financial obligations and important savings goals. The increases among Americans as a whole have been fairly modest over the past year, but these mask a much greater rise in worry among lower-income Americans, two-thirds of whom now have doubts about just paying their monthly bills..

Consumer debt and credit rose 1.7% in the first quarter to $15.84 trillion. The rise in total household credit was propelled largely by a $250 billion increase in mortgage debt, which now stands at $11.18 trillion, an increase of 10% from the first quarter in 2021.

Credit card balances actually fell during the three-month period by $15 billion but still remained $71 billion, or about 9% higher than they were for the same period a year ago. Auto loan originations declined in the first quarter after what the New York Fed described as “a historically brisk 2021,” in which used vehicle prices soared by nearly 27%.

Student loan debt climbed by $14 billion in the first quarter, bringing the annual increase to 6.5%.

I could go on but I think we get the picture and those who are cynical and aware — this was predicted. It is an attempt to destroy our current way of life and eliminated legacy systems that we rely ion and replace them with what the technocrats say are efficient digital controls of the monetary system.

Yes, the inevitability of a cashless system with more control over your increase and wealth is all part of the Great Reset with digital money that can be tracked and even taken from you for bad behavior.

Everyone is wondering why they are pushing digital currency with such expediency.

First, it was a response to Covid. Then they could help us halt Climate Change. Then they’re a response to the war in Ukraine.

Using that method they have moved from a barely-discussed fringe idea to regular mainstream coverage and 90% of the world trying digital money out, all within the space of a couple of years.

Interestingly, while digital currencies are being talked about more and more, there is one specific feature of them which is being talked about less and less: programmability.

That is because that is the hidden consequence of giving up currency you can hold in your hand — like gold and silver coins and paper money.

Essentially, any digital currency would give either the state, the central bank or the corporation issuing the money as wages the power to control how and where the money is spent.  Any digital currency amounts to potential third-party control of your money.

It’s that simple.

This has massive implications for the very idea of individual liberty. Given how the last two years have gone, it’s not at all hard to imagine how such a system could be abused.

Halting payments because of your political views,  garnishing wages to “fight climate change” or individual financial sanctions because you aren’t is all possible with a highly controlled national ledger provided by a central banking system

Always remember what happened to the Canadian truckers as their protests led to financial unpersoning,

.A cashless society  would make that process both easier for the state to enforce and harder for an individual to avoid.

It is, quite obviously, one of the biggest ethical and societal issues in any potential system of digital currency.

We have a serious debt problem, but solutions such as the World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” are not the future we want.  Governments have delegated the power to create money to private banks, which create most of the circulating money supply as debt at interest. They create the principal but not the interest, so more money must be repaid than was created in the original loan. Debt thus grows faster than the money supply.

Before the game can be reset, the board must be cleared. What would make the population accept giving up their private property, surviving on a marginal basic income, and submitting to constant surveillance, internal and external.

There would have to be a major fall that would clear the slate — and when that happens — where would your financial worth end up?

The global pandemic and the lockdowns that followed have gone far toward achieving the cleansing of cash and opening a glaring hole that would be filled with digital dollars that the World bank can control

Lockdowns not only eliminated smaller business competitors but drove up the debts of small countries, forcing them to increase their loans from the International Monetary Fund. The IMF is notorious for onerous loan terms, including imposing strict austerity measures, relinquishing control of natural resources, and marching in “lockstep” with pandemic restrictions.

We are currently at cross-roads, where we still can either decide to follow the discourse of a new electronic monetary era, with ever less to say by “We, the People” about the product of our work, our money; or whether, We, the People, will resist a banking/finance system that has full control over our financial resources, and which can literally starve us into submission or death, if we don’t behave. In order to resist we need an alternative monetary system or monetary network,

The global shift from cash towards digital transactions is being spearheaded by Bill Gates and US financial corporations who will profit from digital payments. At the same time, by controlling digital payments (and removing cash), you can control and monitor everything a country and its citizens do and pay for.

A new report from the Bank of International Settlements estimates that up to 90% of national central banks are at least in the planning stages for launching a central bank digital currency.

The report states that nine out of 10 central banks are exploring central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), and more than half are now developing them or running concrete experiments. In particular, work on retail CBDCs has moved to more advanced stages.

This echoes a March report from the IMF, which claimed over one hundred nations are at least in the planning stages of releasing their own CBDC.

It seems programs of government-issued digital money have been gaining momentum all around the world since at least 2020, and apparently, now they exist in over half the countries on the planet.

Agustin Carstens, the head of the Bank of International Settlements discussed the idea in detail when he said the following:

“The key difference [with a CBDC] is that the central bank would have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability, and then have the technology to enforce that.”

Digital cash could be programmed to ensure it is only spent on essentials, or goods which an employer or Government deems to be sensible again taking away choice.

The list of countries trialing digital currencies includes Ukraine and Russia, the United States and China, Britain and the EU..

So picking a side is not going to save you –that is why propaganda and controlling information is vital to their schemes.

It is obvious that more organized chaos coming. The World Economic Forum hope that their engineered crisis will lead to us begging for a digital police state.

The Satanic rules of engagement mean that our friends in Davos need your permission before they act, hence the use of the Hegelian dialectic creating a problem that needs a solution,

The globalists will use inflation & growing economic chaos as the problem, they anticipate that we’ll react to their engineered crisis by demanding a better system — then will come the rioting: and of course they want social unrest as the reaction to the problem.

When there is no cash to fall back on and every single transaction in a society is computerized and can be monitored by the state and private corporations, you will wish you had invested in something that is tangible.

It all comes down to what you believe and what is important to you. If you value freedom, then you must actively choose the behavior that leads you to freedom.

Once you are familiar with behavioral change principles, using them can quickly become second nature. While constantly checking your own behavior can feel cumbersome or even irritating to begin with, stick with it.

We need the truth, perception/awareness, common sense, caring and honesty and love. And we already have our freedom – we just need to claim it and stop giving it away.

    I’m so glad I found you. I’m in my late 60’s. Work has me driving late at night. You’ve kept me company on my jobs, but our local radio station stopped carrying your show. (Censorship by Massachusetts Idiocy?) I’m glad I can stream you on my phone. Sometimes, your content is beyond me (space talk, etc.), but I still listen, and try to learn. While sometimes unsettling, you understand what’s going on. We need you. I look forward to your show, and am grateful for your voice. Thank you.

    {Rev. 2:17} is key to escaping WEF’s “kline bottle” global-panopticon plantation. Not through any quantum encrypting, but by cryptograph, panoplied with government imprimatured verity, and whitestone anonymity. There is nothing conventionally to hack, as new identity is only known and used by owner, but still has ubiquitous authenticity recognition. A paradigm approach for doing this developed to protect patient medical record integrity, through ongoing verity. Such legal 10’th amendment based operation does uniquely generate, then just once permanently registers under legally established doctor-patient confidentiality privilege, precedent. A so reiterated personal identity can be ported into “other” digital operational spheres with intrinsic invulnerability.

    (Jimbo’s) comment sounds like a freedom restoration initiative could be underway. Wondering if the COS (convention of states, Sen. Rick Santorum) is behind something here?

    In the star wars films not all planets accept all currencies. One guy says they don’t take republic credits he wants something more real. That’s how I feel about bitcoin and other digital currencies. It seems fake. Paper money was printed by both sides during the civil war because of coin shortages. But not everyone recognized both sides as legitimate money. Modern coins are made of copper and nickel with zinc in the pennies. They are worth more than paper so I hang on to them. They might have to start over with paper because of inflation. There is so much of it. There are pallets of it stored by other countries, drug cartels and other criminal syndicates. I believe A big part of inflation is caused by economic sanctions so the big eastern countries are using it less but its still floating around. An all digital currency is the weakest form so there are no guarantees with it. Silver, gold and bartering might be the final economy. Maybe the beast system will include big cities with reliable internet with digital currencies while rural areas adopt a different form.

    Steve Forbes book, “Inflation..” presents his idea for what he terms ‘stable coin’: a digital currency backed by and based on gold, possibly other precious metals. Were this adopted fiat currency manipulation would cease which is a good thing. However, the adage He who has the (most) gold makes the rules, would likely come into play. So who does now actually possess the most gold reserves? The BRIC countries have been aggrandizing for some while. Could transactions based on a non-fiat stable coin digital currency actually be private, and by definition, free market? We cannot have government fettered currency shackled around a free people and still remain free. The appeal of Bitcoin, is self-validating verity from back traceable transparency. But again this very fact invalidates private free market free enterprise that built our nation.
