The CIA and similar intelligence agencies are continuing their involvement in the news media to mold thought and opinion in ways scarcely imagined by the lay public. This is yet another dimension of the security matrix which is being constructed by the shadow government to control content and to find those who may be publishing forbidden intelligence and conspiracy theories that undermine the moves toward a New World Order. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with media and pop culture analyst, Dr. Darrell Y. Hamamoto about FACTUAL SIZE – C.I.A. SPIES AND THEIR LITTLE LIES.





The saber-rattling that is now triggering nuclear paranoia is now underway yet again.  Yesterday it was reported that President Biden was on the phone for more than two hours with Chinese president Xi Jinping.

The Washington Post is citing a senior administration official to say Presidents Joe Biden and Xi Jinping were speaking about Taiwan tensions and that things were not looking so good as both leaders had a heated exchange.

China state sources are reporting that – in a moment perhaps intent on humiliating the President – Xi warned Biden “those who play with fire will get burned.”

Bloomberg cited Xi as saying, based on early Chinese state media reports, that “China firmly opposes separatist moves toward Taiwan independence and interference by external forces, and never allows any room for Taiwan independence forces in whatever form.” As usual, Biden was urged to stick by the one-China policy, with the US president reiterating what the US intends to do.

In the face of Xi’s firm words on the Taiwan issue, Biden affirmed that the United States does not back Taiwan independence.

Not only did Xi again lay down China’s ‘red lines’ on Taiwan, but the Chinese leader stressed Beijing vehemently opposes the “intervention of other powers,” according to quotes in China state media.

The warning comes just hours after the USS Ronald Reagan nuclear-powered ‘super carrier’ has entered waters of the South China Sea, triggering PLA snap military drills in the area in response.

After multiple US Navy sail-throughs of both the Taiwan Strait and near the Paracel islands this summer, Beijing has ramped up its rhetoric threatening a “forceful response” – particularly if House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi follows through with her trip to Taipei next month.

Can you imagine the possibility of a major war with China over the shooting down of a plane with Pelosi on it?

I can just imagine the mixed reactions form those who support her and those who despise her — let alone a war declared based on a political snafu.

From Beijing’s point of view Xi put Biden on notice over all these recent US maneuvers, saying in essence, I’m the captain now!

The message this morning is that the PLA is now preparing for war.

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) 80th Group Army generated over 300,000 thumbs-up online in 12 hours on Friday, amid high morale among Chinese soldiers ahead of the 95th anniversary of the founding of the PLA and escalating tensions across the Taiwan Straits.

The post on Sina Weibo had received more than 19,000 comments as of press time, with many online citizens commenting excitedly “PLA soldiers, fighting! We support you guys!”

The 80th Group Army posted a comment saying, “we must bear in mind the fundamental responsibility of preparing for war and charge on the journey of a strong army.” The comment has received 8,000 thumbs-up.

Chinese President Xi Jinping said previously that only those capable of fighting can stop battles, and only those prepared for war don’t have to fall into war.

Again we are seeing a geopolitical surge in moving forward with operations that were put on hold during the Trump administration–and the biggest task facing the United States is how to handle public opinion and the distribution of information that won’t harm or otherwise send a message that there is a lack of faith in this administration.

It is without doubt that the wolves are eating their way through the sheep and rendering them immobile, and incapable of anything only worshiping the blood lust war narrative. And they have been walking amongst us in full sight.

That makes it all the more macabre is the so called  ‘free press’ and TV presenters  have either been genuinely Mind Controlled or are indeed the Devil’s Apprentices.

But this has always been the suspicion and now it appears that the trust between the media and the people is fading rapidly.

If those running US foreign policy feel that a new geo-political order is being born “at breathtaking speed” then they are capable of extreme acts. And they have all the mainstream western media behind them, barking out their non-stop propaganda.

There are world threats of war but at the moment, we are at war in many ways and these micro-wars are being created by intelligence ops all over the world.

We are inexorably moving toward a global war that will become nuclear if an international movement doesn’t quickly arise to stop it.  Most people bemoan the thought of such a war to end all wars, but refuse to analyze the factors leading to it.

It seems so unimaginable, but It happens step-by-step, and many steps have already been taken with more coming soon.  It’s so obvious that most can’t see it, or don’t want to.

The corporate mainstream media are clearly part of the continuation of the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, and those who still rely on them for the truth are beyond reach.

Operation Mockingbird was a secret CIA campaign to spread disinformation and false stories to foreign governments during the Cold War. The CIA did this by manipulating the media into focusing on propaganda, sabotage, and subversion.

It was later revealed in Congressional hearings that the CIA operatives were literally paying off editors and reporters and most mainstream news outlets: the New York Times, CBS, Washington Post, Newsweek, AP, Reuters, and countless others.

More and more of the outlets from which Americans get their information are being filled not just with garden variety establishment loyalists, but with longstanding members of the U.S. intelligence community which could very well be operatives of the Deep State conspiracy that operates under the radar to fuether the agendas of the intel groups under the employ of those with enough money to shape the world for the new order.

Both active and ex-CIA operatives are now being used as consultants on many of the major cable news networks.

What is less well known is the CIA is engaged in tipping the balance in the domestic as well as international contests. That’s why it’s secret, and why all the corporate privateers protect it. They share the same business ideology. CIA officers, PR people, journalists, politicians, and academics who get paid to give “expert” testimony on Fox or MSNBC, are knowingly manipulating social and political movements here in the US.

The CIA sets up Twitter accounts and Facebook pages and social websites to move people into mass organizations to achieve its secret ends.

It stands to reason that with a new cold war underway and a possible major war being planned that the CIA is in charge of handling and infiltrating every major outlet of information that pours into the zeitgeist on a daily basis.

Time and again you see connections between the plutocratic class which effectively owns America’s elected government, the intelligence and defense agencies which operate behind thick veils of secrecy in the name of “national security” to advance agendas which have nothing to do with the wishes of the electorate, and the mass media machine which is used to manufacture the consent of the people to be governed by this exploitative power structure.

After World War II, the Central Intelligence Agency has been a major force in US and foreign news media, exerting considerable influence over what the public sees, hears and reads on a regular basis. CIA publicists and journalists alike will assert they have few, if any, relationships, yet the seldom acknowledged history of their intimate collaboration indicates a far different story–indeed, one that media historians are reluctant to examine.

The CIA and similar intelligence agencies’ have had continued involvement in the news media to mold thought and opinion in ways scarcely imagined by the lay public.

Now the media does not seem to want to hide the fact that they have now brought on Intelligence consultants and distributors that have a major conflict of interest.

America can now expect a consistent fountain of disinformation to flow unhindered from the mouths of Deep State actors on the major news networks, and you can also expect them to all prop up their exploitative globalist power establishment and advance its geopolitical agendas.

Now what I am about to say may or may not shock you but it matters that this be reported to the world in order for it to be a matter of record. The mainstream media won’t tell you this but there are some conspiracy theorists who have speculated about this information.

The idea that social networking sites and applications such as Facebook, Twitter and their competitors can facilitate communication and information sharing amongst diverse groups and individuals is by now a cliché to everyone.

It should come as no surprise then, that the secret state and the  grifters whom they serve, have zeroed-in on the explosive growth of these technologies. One can be certain however, the Technocrats aren’t tweeting their restaurant preferences or finalizing plans for after work drinks.

No, researchers on both sides of the Atlantic are busy as proverbial bees building a “total information” surveillance system, one that will, so they hope, provide police and security agencies with what they  call “actionable intelligence.”

This is yet another dimension of the security matrix that is being constructed by the shadow government to control content and to find those who may be publishing forbidden intelligence and or conspiracy theory that undermines the moves towards the new world order.

From the times of Ed Snowden we were all aware of a surveillance scheme that simplified–the already formidable U.S. “Main Core” database that “reportedly collects and stores–without warrants or court orders–the names and detailed data of Americans considered to be threats to national security.

There is also a method of  “Automatic Content Extraction” gleaned from “a variety of sources, such as news, broadcast conversations” that identify “relations between entities, and the events in which these participate.”

How is this accomplished? Why through an exploitation of open source materials of course!

Nothing escapes this panoptic eye. Even popular culture and leisure activities fall under the glare of security agencies and their academic partners in the latest iteration of this truly monstrous privacy-killing scheme.

The CIA has now entered the lucrative market of social networking surveillance in a big way. The CIA’s investment arm, In-Q-Tel, reads your blog posts, keeps track of your Twitter updates–even checks out your book reviews on Amazon.

U.S. Strategic Command and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, have used  The frim “Concepts & Strategies, which has handled media monitoring and translation services for them.

They have always been in the business of looking for   “social media engagement specialists” with Defense Department experience and “a high proficiency in Arabic, Farsi, French, Urdu or Russian.”

But as we have seen across the decades, from COINTELPRO to Operation CHAOS, and from Pentagon media manipulation during the run-up to the Iraq war through driftnet warrantless wiretapping of Americans’ electronic communications, the secret state is a law unto itself, a self-perpetuating bureaucracy that thrives on duplicity, fear and cold, hard cash.

An investigative reporter for MintPress News on Monday said it was “very worrying” that Facebook is employing former CIA agents to moderate misinformation policies on the social media platform.

Alan MacLeod, who published a piece last week about ex-CIA agents working at Facebook, reported that the decision to employ them to moderate content was worrying because the CIA has a “long history of infiltrating media organizations.”

“The CIA has a terrible track record from everything from organizing coups to running black sites all over the world to even just planting a load of false information into the public domain to suit their own agenda,” MacLeod said. “We are now relying on these people to tell us what’s fact and fiction and to sort truth and fiction from falsehood online.”

Facebook has struggled to contain misinformation for years. The social media company employs third party fact-checking organizations to reduce the spread of false and harmful content.

MacLeod, who wrote that Facebook has employed dozens of former CIA agents primarily to work in the fields of security or content moderation, says that a limited amount of people are experts in cybersecurity, which would explain why Facebook is looking toward the CIA.

But the reporter said Americans are “not secure from what our own government is doing” the more control that current and former officials have over technology.

We have been told by the mainstream media that Russia and China have flooded the internet with misinformation but there is no guarantee that the CIA isn’t doing the same.

According to a detailed report by Open the Government, Jeff Bezos and Amazon were favorites of the U.S. intelligence “community” from Day One and they still enjoy a rather cozy and lucrative relationship. Currently, more than half of the former government employees hired by Amazon have been from the Defense Department.

Amazon also provides cloud services to the CIA — at a cost of billions. Also, in 2013, Amazon signed a Pentagon IT contract for $10 billion to create the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure program (JEDI). According to the Pentagon, Amazon technology supports their “lethality and enhanced operational efficiency.”

After a more recent CIA-Amazon deal in November 2020, a company spokesperson explained that Amazon is “honored to continue to support the intelligence community as they expand their transformational use of cloud computing.”

Our lives are currently being manipulated and controlled by a shadow government that transcends national borders or loyalty. This corporate-state nexus coerces you into focusing on trivialities like Hollywood, party politics, woke whims, LGBTQ, Critical Race theory, January 6th insurrection, all of the distractions that do nothing to inform you of the encroachment of a world government and the possibilities of war and depopulation agendas.

Meanwhile, the clowns you vote for, the media you watch, and the social media you obsess over are all owned and operated by mostly faceless psychopaths that move effortlessly between the “public” and “private” sectors.

They manufacture our opinions, our desires, our dreams. But their power is so, so tenuous.

If it’s true freedom and autonomy you seek, all you have to do is stop conforming and stop fearing the wrath of the hive mind. Sure, it’s never easy to buck the system but if you don’t, you are living a life of delusion, submission, and fear.

    It looks like we’re going to have that retrocausal nuclear holocaust event based on that New York City, FEAR PORN PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT you talked about earlier this week sooner than later based on the news of THE RED CHINESE threatening to shoot Speaker Pelosi’s plane down if she visits Taiwan in August 2022, and it may also fulfill that prophecy of one of those Time Travelers video predictions from 2018, predicting a nuclear war between us and the RED CHINESE, as well.

    Good guys don’t invade other countries in wars of aggression, your boy Putin has. Good guys don’t deport two and a half million Ukrainians, including over 300,000 children to Russia, most likely to be slaves, according to Mark Levin back in mid July, your boy Putin has. Good guys don’t set up torture camps inside Ukraine,at least three of them according to a report in,”THE SUN,” as reported bu Mark Levin, your boy Putin has. Good guys don’t allow their soldiers to torture their captives. According to ar report from,”THE SUN,” as read ,Friday, July, 29, 2022, by Mark Levin, someone dressed as one of their soldiers and suspected to be a member of,” THE WAGNER GROUP,” used a bolt cutter to castrate a Ukrainian man he had hand cuffed on his back on the ground-all WAR CRIMES- your boy Putin did. As for the Zolinskys posing for VOGUE MAGAZINE, I understand they are trying to draw all the attention to their cause they can.

    To call them CHI COMS or RED CHINESE, is not only a COLD WAR affectation, but serves todistinguish their government from the innocent rank and file citizens, who unfortunately mindlessly go along with their go along with their evil, rotten, corrupt government. As for his cheap shot at Seb Gorka, when it comes to communism his family, his parents have bitter first hand experience growing up in Hungary. I don’t think all those wicked, evil deepstate intell hacks should be allowed to retire with any of their pensions. It would send a bad message by allowing them to get away with all their harlotries and abominations and crimes against the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ie, TREASONOUS TREATUROUS CONDUCT. As for those so called ,” show trials,” of Mark Zuckerberg you referred to, those were the standard Congressional oversight the constitution refers to, Clyde. By the way it was Senator Diane Feinstein who had the CHI COM DRIVER.

    China is growing stronger at a fast rate while the USA is declining at a fast rate. China is making serious technological progress. Their military is growing and they view the USA as thieves trying to steal Taiwan. The biggest problem is the west imposing perversions wherever they go. They dont just take the resources from occupied countries they blast the people with lgbtq propaganda. This is only popular among a small minority of people in a few western countries. Most people in the west are sick of it. People just want to live normally, they dont want to see rainbows and tranny children pedophilia on the tv everyday. Russia didnt want that next door and neither do the chinese. They view it as an assault on them as a people. And because of the strengthening of the east the western leaders will make a preemptive strike. If the west doesnt strike soon then China will become more powerful than the USA. I can imagine the deep state leaders in a room discusing where and how to send nukes to cripple china and Russia while defending certain US locations to minimize the counter attack. They are short on time.

    WOW! The media in CANADA is just as bad! I personally was silenced by the almighty Bell Media in Canada for forwarding “anti-vax” info by Jon Rappaport about 2 yrs ago! As a result, I am not putting ANY money into any company which advertizes on Bell/Rogers/Corus Entertainment!!!!

    CIA caught in the act of “Steering and Smearing” the voluntaryist/peaceful anarchist, anarcho-capitalist and crypto-anarchist political movements including distributing drugs at conferences they engineer to control political opposition to an organized crime “government”. The Art of Liberty Foundation has started a Substack series to help activists and the population at large better understand how controlled opposition works and how the CIA distributes drugs into political and social movements.

    As far as I know, it hasn’t been acceptable to invade a neighbor in modern times simply because you abhor their culture, unless one counts Al Quaeda, per Greg.
