The war in Ukraine has been nothing but a hindrance to America. We see gas prices skyrocketing and no answers as to how we are going to feed our kids while the elitist talking heads are chastising us for complaining about being inconvenienced. They don’t care about what democracy entails They are in it for the money, the accumulation of power, and the attention. Narcissism, neglecting context, history, and multiple points of view, are the defining characteristics of what the media is selling and what our leaders are demonstrating. We should have remembered what happened in Afghanistan before we even agreed to be part of Biden’s Proxy War. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis about UKRAINE FATIGUE – WARGAMING FOR DUMMIES.





Back on June 5th, it was my late father’s birthday and as they say you never really get over losing a parent. My Mother passed away before my dad and I was thinking about some of the things we would do together as a family over the fourth of July weekend.

My father would either pack up the family for a fishing trip or we would have a few weeks of watching baseball at Dirk’s Field. Utah had a minor league team called the Angels which eventually became the Gulls and later, the Buzz.

Bill Murray from Saturday Night Live had a partnership with the team and one time I even got to meet him and Huey Lewis.

The fourth of July games were special because afterward there would be a huge fireworks display set to music and of course when you are young things like fireworks were awesome and having the opportunity to watch a baseball game was even more special.

I am sure many of you have been to a football or a baseball game where you are watching your favorite team getting clobbered. At the start of the second half, your team is down 40 points, or it is the 7th inning and your team  is  looking at a 14-run deficit.

You are devastated right?

Now, what do most people do? Do they sit in the bleachers and continue to cheer? or do you pack up and leave the stadium?

If you are watching it on TV — do you switch the channel and watch something on Animal Planet? or Disney+  to take your mind away from the humiliating defeat?

Be honest — of course, you would do that.

Yes, there are a few die hard fanatics that will put themselves through the torture of watching the bloodbath but most want to immediately find an exit or pull the plug.

Have you noticed that the mainstream media has done this with the Ukraine war?  They have already toned down their coverage of the war and have replaced it with the January 6th hearings.

In fact, the networks want to avoid talking about this war so much that they are now extending the hearings because they claim to have more compelling footage.

.Representative  Bennie Thompson the chairman of the January 6th Committee, said that the hearing schedule will continue into July.

All I can say is thank God that Stranger Things will be on TV and I can also see how Ellen Page becomes Elliot Page on the Umbrella Academy.

But the reason this whole show trial is being extended is because newly obtained evidence, including footage from British filmmaker Alex Holder, who is scheduled to speak to the committee,

But wait isn’t there a war on? What happened to the wall-to-wall coverage, and the reports of victory, and the David and Goliath drama against the evil Kremlin and Vladimir Putin.

Well, it is obvious that the home team is getting clobbered and there is no real reason to continue to talk about mass casualties while at the same time telling us that Ukraine is winning.

They can’t have it both ways.

With all of the money and weapons we are supplying them and all of the sacrifices we are told are mandatory for this proxy war — Biden has a lot of explaining to do.

People are officially leaving the stadium and all we are hearing from now are the die-hards that don’t want to admit that their zeal for a country that months ago they didn’t care about was a little premature.

It is time to ask the question, what is this war for? What is the objective, we won’t get answers only quick reports of continuous victories against the Russian Troops and how Vladimir Putin seems weakened with wobbly knees.

This is beginning to feel like a Groundhog Day movie where we get the same propaganda every day without change.

People today think they are in the know because of some piece of Pro Ukraine Anti-Trump investigative new or news feature.

Hashtag activists will be there to yell fake news to whatever makes them uncomfortable and they will tell you they know better than you because of some because of another hundredth documentary consumed in a year, and all the noise coming from these script readers and yellers and scammers we call the mainstream media.

They know everything because they can parrot the talking heads.

They call that fact checking.

The war has been nothing but a hindrance to America — gas prices skyrocketing, no answers as to how we are going to feed our kids and the same young elitist talking heads chastising us for complaining about being inconvenienced.

The smugness and smirks are back but this time they are aimed at Americans that are figuring out the jig is up.

While we are getting a barrage of reports of Trump’s narcissism and hubris, we tend to overlook the same traits in our current President and those that sit like vultures overseeing the January 6th hearings.

They don’t care about what democracy entails They are in it for the money, the attention, the accumulation of power, and the attention. Narcissism, and neglecting context and history and multiple points of view, definitely defining characteristics of what the media is selling –and what our leaders are demonstrating.

They hope we are not keeping track of the trillions of dollars pouring into a lost cause in Ukraine. This is why they need an extended distraction — it is just one more tactic in their arsenal to distract us from the debacle that they are creating.

I don’t know if you are seeing what I am seeing and that is so many wagons are circling, so many lobbies running the America citizen into the ground. So much is broken and wrong about the way or government operates, its a clown car, unloading clowns to a clown show — distracting is from criminal destruction of the world economy fpr the great reset.

We have insane people in positions of power, positions of middling influence, and then, of course, policy makers are in the pockets of the millionaires and billionaires — which reminds me, when Volodymyr Zelensky shows up on TV begging for more money and weapons — how does this not look like some parasitic grifter that is in your pocket daily finding some new way to scam you — or even blackmails you into surrendering more of your hard earned paycheck?

Sorry it does not seem like this lemon is worth the squeeze.

It is like a family member on a Las Vegas trip that loses at craps in the casino , begging you for a 100 dollars so he can win it back.

The line is always “Don’t worry I am good for it– I’ll pay you back.”

Zelensky doesn’t even say that.

It is like he is gaming the system for a gambling addiction.

But not to worry, no one will figure it out because we have a show trial to broadcast. We will even extend it to July because people just can’t get enough. They are tired of war — they want a hanging.

We are all caught up in the deep pit of their lies, all of them, We are still  stuck in a loop with Putin Trump Biden and all the clowns of Politics.

What are they doing for you now?

Plain and simple — they are wargaming and posturing, propping themselves into positions where they look like they are all knowing and all powerful– but that is all an illusion — nothing is working for them and this is why they are in this loop.

Having lied prolifically for months to the American public about the origins and conduct of the war in Ukraine, the media are now preparing the American, British, and other Western publics for Ukraine’s military collapse,

But they just don’t know how to break it to a public that has been urged to make sacrifices. We should have remembered what happened in Afghanistan, before  we even agreed to be part of Biden’s Proxy war.

But sides were taken before the truth even had a chance to breathe.

The media did everything in its power to give the Ukrainian defense the appearance of far greater strength than it really possessed. Careful observers noted that the same video clips of Russian tanks under attack were shown repeatedly. Local counterattacks were reported as though they were operational maneuvers.

Then came all of these legendary stories of the Ghost of Ukraine, and beauty queens suiting up to go into battle.  These are things that wind up in cartoons, and eventually it was reported that none of these things happened,

Russian errors were exaggerated out of all proportion to their significance. Russian losses and the true extent of Ukraine’s own losses were distorted, fabricated, or simply ignored. But conditions on the battlefield changed little over time. Once Ukrainian forces immobilized themselves in static defensive positions inside urban areas and  the central Donbas, the Ukrainian position was hopeless. But this development was portrayed as failure by the Russians to gain “their objectives.

Apart from Russia retreating from Kiev in March–the Ukrainians believe they beat the Russians back while Russia appears to have used the operation to fix Ukrainian forces in the west so that they could focus on the Donbas and southern coast of Ukraine–Ukraine has experienced regular loss of territory and horrific casualties. Some estimates indicate that for every Russian killed or wounded, Ukrainian troops are suffering 20 times the losses.

There has been no organized offensive campaign by Ukraine.

President Biden has bought himself a trillion dollar quagmire – oh let me rephrase that you are buying with your tax dollars a trillion dollar quagmire.

It is wargaming for dummies.

The architects of the Great Reset are wired to reward those who advance pro-empire narratives and punish those who damage them.

Textbooks present wars, revolutions, and conflicts as unavoidable, accidental occurrences. When political negotiations decay into physical conflict, historians portray wars as coming after valiant efforts to avoid conflict. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

When Nazi war criminals were investigated, the tribunals were careful to censor any records of Western assistance to Hitler. Similarly, Western textbooks tend to gloss over any information that indicates the key players in the West gave financial aid to the 1917 Russian Revolution because they didn’t want to appear pro-Communist.

In this sense, our Western history books and narratives are just as censored as the news and propaganda in Hitler’s day or in Communist China. We must read history books critically and intelligently not just for what they say, but also for what they don’t say.

Our freedom of the press is not as “free” as we like to think it is.

War is almost preplanned behind the scenes, and the individuals pulling the strings are not necessarily the leaders of the countries in conflict. State leaders are often puppets themselves, controlled by elites to whom they owe their position.

Much of the time, these elitists make revolutions appear as a sudden, spontaneous outbreak of a downtrodden class against a tyrannical government, whereas this is not always the case. In too many cases, the downtrodden class is used as pawns to fulfill an agenda of someone much higher up.

In his novel, Coningsby, Benjamin Disraeli writes this:

“The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.”

US President Woodrow Wilson said this:

“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

It is obvious that we are seeing diabolic elements at play.

For those who are willing to look behind the obvious, the use of conflict to create a New World Order is a bitter but true fact.

People are being played and anyone supporting this is either asleep or  feels that they are going to be able to handle the darkness that is coming.

These people haven’t the sense to walk out of stadium or demand their money back because the team they are rooting for is losing — not just with war casualties but politically as well.

Kiev’s war with Moscow is lost.

Ukrainian forces are being bled white. Trained replacements do not exist in sufficient numbers to influence the battle, and the situation grows more desperate by the hour. No amount of U.S. and allied military aid or assistance short of direct military intervention by U.S. and NATO ground forces can change this harsh reality.

Is that going to be the next pitch? Would you support direct intervention, in Ukraine?

Another full boots on the ground war that could lead to a nuclear conflict?

The question is whether or not the nuclear threat is the only thing holding us back.

We, of course, need some motivator — like another Pearl Harbor to get us to support a full on war instead of this game being led by clowns and grifters.

Whether the fighting stops in the early fall will depend on two key factors. The first involves the leadership in Kiev. Will the Zelensky government consent to the Biden program for perpetual conflict with Russia?

If the Biden administration has its way, Kiev will continue to operate as a base for the buildup of new forces poised to threaten Moscow. In practice, this means Kiev must commit national suicide by exposing the Ukrainian heartland west of the Dnieper River to massive, devastating strikes by Russia’s long-range missile and rocket forces.

Europeans, like most Americans, are already looking  into the abyss of an all-encompassing economic downturn that Biden’s policies are creating at home. Unlike Americans who must cope with the consequences of Biden’s ill-conceived policies, European governments can opt out of Biden’s perpetual-war plan for Ukraine.

Having poured more than $60 billion or a little more than $18 billion a month in direct or indirect transfers into a Ukrainian state that is now crumbling, the important question is, what happens to millions of Ukrainians in the rest of the country that did not flee? And where will the funds come from to rebuild Ukraine’s shattered society in a developing global economic emergency?

When inflation costs the average American household an extra $460 per month to buy the same goods and services this year as they did last year, it is quite possible that Ukraine could sink the Titanic as support for the war effort begins to decrease and the voters find a way to balance the power structure.

This is reality — not the clap trap being sold on the mainstream news.

This is only the beginning of Ukraine Fatigue.

How much do you really love Ukraine? It is one thing to put blue and yellow flags on your Facebook icon but yet you’re unhappy about $5 a gallon for gas? Try $8 or how about 10– best place to by fuel now is Russia — about a buck and a half.

This is all upside down.

How much more pain can you feel when the tank needs to be full for that fourth of July fishing trip?

The worries go beyond inflation her in the U.S..

I was reading that Italy’s foreign minister, Luigi Di Maio, warned recently that Russia’s blockade on Ukraine’s grain exports could spark a global bread war, producing famine in Africa and a new wave of migrants heading for Europe.

Sri Lanka’s economy has “completely collapsed” according to its; prime minister.

Their dire situation that has left millions struggling with fuel, electricity and food shortages.

Sri Lanka is in the midst of its worst financial crisis in seven decades, after its foreign exchange reserves plummeted to record lows, with dollars running out to pay for essential imports including food, medicine and fuel.

In recent weeks, the government has taken drastic measures to cope with the crisis, including implementing a four-day work week for public sector workers to allow them time to grow their own crops. However, the measures are doing little to ease the struggles faced by many in the country.

In several major cities, including the commercial capital, Colombo, hundreds continue to line up  for hours to buy fuel, sometimes clashing with police and the military as they wait.

Trains have reduced in frequency, forcing travelers to squeeze into compartments and even sit precariously on top of them as they commute to work.

Patients are unable to travel to hospitals due to the fuel shortage and food prices are soaring. Rice, a staple in the South Asian nation, has disappeared from shelves in many shops and supermarkets.

Anyone want to imagine this in the United States? It is not that hard really but of course, there are those in denial cheering on the losing team saying it can’t happen here,

Well, drip dip drip — it is happening and it will be worse in a place where we all have a sense of entitlement — and demand to be recognized for our victimhood and struggles.

Naturally, the false narrative of Russia blocking Ukrainian ports needs to be kept alive at all costs. There’s just one “tiny” problem – it doesn’t exist. Usually, Western leadership takes an issue and intentionally blows it out of proportion to keep “useful” political narratives alive. However, this is an outright, unadulterated lie. Just one of many coming from the political West. What is definitely true is the coming food crisis and the resulting chaos,

All by design.

We should resent this — and call it out, and the curiosity is why are we not doing it? Is it a black mark on your patriotism to say that the United States needs to start taking care of its own before we decide to play wargames in Europe?

Recently, an Associated Press poll found that a majority of American voters thought the US should impose tough sanctions against Russia, even if it means U.S. economic pain.

By May, the majority had shifted; 51% said the top priority should be limiting damage to the U.S. economy.

Just a little bit too late– we should have seen this coming –again after the debacle of Afghanistan.

The effects of repeated strategic failures in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria are cumulative.

Oh, but the new administration’s promises were so enticing, We would be free from all of the Trump hate and we would prosper.

Well this has not happened — we still are watching the Trump hate on TV distracting us from how we are not prospering and the war? The media has pulled the plug, because their team is falling apart.

In November, Americans will go to the polls. The election itself will do more than test the integrity of the American electoral process. The election is also likely to ensure that Biden is remembered for his stubbornness; his refusal to change course,

The prospect sickens and the people are now having Ukraine fatigue and it shows.

    Clyde, two weeks ago Mark Levin said,” the reason you ,”PUTINOIDS,” arenot talking about the war in Ukraine is because he is winning,” now you are saying the reason we are not hearing about the war in Ukraine is because Ukraine is losing. I hear that Russia is making alot of money, perhaps a record amount of money selling oil to the rest of the world, especially China, which begs the question why can’t they do the same with food if they are a breadbasket of the world, which they are not. You are just two months younger than I am, therefore you should remember learning in school that,”Ukraine is,/was the breadbasket of the SOVIET UNION.” THE reason they are going after Julian Asange is because of the careless way in which he mishandled sensitive,/ classified information, allegedly causing harm and death to numerous innocent people. The price of oil had been going up for about a year before your boy Putin wrongly and wrongfully invaded Ukraine. I remember seeing a quote in my local paper THE DELAWARE COUNTY,(Pennsylvania), DAILY TIMES, on ,Friday, June 10, 2022, attributed to your boy Putin, in which allegedly stated that the reason he went into Ukraine was to,” reunite the old Russian empire”. I don’t see why we can’t walk and chew gum at the same time, ie…protect our borders and security as well as Ukraine, help feed them as well as us. Maybe these elitists you mention above do care about democracy in their own, perhaps twisted way and are trying to do well for themselves while doing good for others. Back at the end of March 2022, while Ukraine was negotiating with Russia, they told the Russian negotiators they were not interest in joining NATO or the E.U., and the Russians told them ,”we don’t care if you join the E.U. If their invasion ou Ukraine were about GLOBALIZATION, why would they tell the Ukrainians they don’t care if they joined the most Globalist organization in the world behind the U.N.

    The eastern powers have grown strong and unified. They are focused on detaching from the west and offering deals to smaller countries. This realy is the 7 year economic rule. 2001 trade center, 2008 mortgage crisis, 2015 chinese stock market crash. 2022 economic divorce between east and west. This is the big one. Obviously every year there is economic happenings but using 9/11 as a a base point and going 7 year intervals you end up here. The bible has 7 sets of 7 years until jubillee where all debts are forgiven and land is returned to its rightful owners. Its an economic reset. Like a game played between rulers. But in order to reach the jubille you must follow the rules like letting the land rest every seventh year, a type of sabbatical year. Which means 6 years are taken to save up for the seventh. This must be done seven times without fail for to reclaim what is lost and start fresh. It is a type of evolution for civilization.

    1973 which is seven sets back was like a mirror image of 2022. An oil crises with super high prices, bad inflation and unemployment. It was worldwide. All these events are by design.
