The FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida is renewing calls among conservative groups and his supporters for a civil war in the US. We are witnessing the intelligence and security branches of this country being used to enforce tyranny. They want us silent, servile, compliant, divided, and powerless in the face of their new political gestapo. Will the Biden Administration be able to withstand a massive rebellion or an insurrection that leads to a decapitation exercise? Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about THE WAR WITHIN. 





The funny thing about Epiphanies — they happen out of nowhere and when you have them, they are either good ones or bad ones. When you have a bad one you tend to avoid talking about it.

It happens when we finally feel — a deep-in-our-marrow feel — what we know to be true.

It is the end result of a lurking suspicion – that becomes a reality and even though I have predicted that something is going to go down — the epiphany that I have had is not at all special when we all have it collectively.

In case you need to be told, the United States is at war. Not with Russia or China — the war at home has arguably begun. It has become a dirty war in the political class.

Yes, implausible as it probably still seems, the Democratic Party nominated Joe Biden, a clearly cognitively-compromised person who literally sucked his wife’s fingers on camera and who can’t get through a two-minute speech without totally losing his train of thought and babbling non-sequiturial gibberish.

Regardless of the propaganda the public is fed up with him, they are tired of the apocalyptic pandemic du jour, and the violent identarian civil unrest.

You now have your heavily-armed politically-polarized populace, your ominous rumblings from military quarters … and an FBI raid at the home of a former President you couldn’t really ask for much more.

The FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida is renewing calls among conservative groups and his supporters for a civil war in the US.

But hasn’t the gauntlet been dropped several times before? Are we now just realizing what is happening because for the first time we have seen a former president being harassed and put on a show trial?

Anyone remember the humiliation of the Bill Clinton presidency of the disgrace of the Nixon administration?

Were any of those former leaders subjected to this kind of attack?  When accusations of war crimes were thrown at the Bush Administration — did anyone investigate that?

The answer is no.

What is happening is unprecedented regardless of what you might think of former President Trump.

The media stopped describing the search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate as a “raid” after a top former FBI agent complained about the wording during an appearance on MSNBC.

Federal agents ransacked Trump’s Florida home, even going through his wife Melania’s wardrobes, in a bid to find classified records Trump allegedly took from the White House.

Trump supporters assert that the boxes recovered during the raid contain files that were already declassified by the time Trump left office.

The raid was carried out after an FBI informant had infiltrated Mar-a-Lago and discovered the precise location of where the files were being kept.

Despite widespread anger at the raid from both Trump supporters and Republicans in general, one former FBI agent tried to language police by insisting that the raid, timed for when the feds knew Trump wouldn’t be home, was not in fact a raid.

“Agents, by the way, don’t like the word raid, they don’t like it,” former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi told MSNBC.

“It sounds like it’s some kind of, you know, extra judicial non legal thing. It’s the execution of a search warrant. It’s a court authorized search warrant,” he added.

Well, we can all call a raid if we wish – just like we an call an insurrection an insurrection.  We can also use the term weaponization as in the political party un charge is weaponizing the FBI for political vendetta.

We can also see that actions such as these can trigger violent behavior –and yes it can trigger actions that could develop into a purge or a decapitation event.

The question is whether or not the Biden Administration will be in charge when a massive rebellion takes place and another attempt at insurrection leads to a decapitation exercise.

An armed suspect was shot and killed by law enforcement after an attempted breach of a Cincinnati FBI building led to a standoff in a rural area.

The suspect, identified by two law enforcement sources as Ricky Shiffer, ended the standoff by firing at officers. Officers returned fire and the suspect died on the scene. No officers were injured in the confrontation.

Allegedly, Schiffer posted on Truth Social that what happened at Mar-a-Lago should be a call to arms.

He urged others to follow his lead, take off work go to an army navy store and by guns. He stated that he and others should be prepared for combat.

He closed his post by saying it was time to stand up tyranny.

He sent the message by attacking the FBI building. This is the first of many events that the Department of Homeland security are counting on.

They are showing us that they made good on their investment of barbed wire around the Capitol. We are seeing the first few attempts at rebellion that is being blamed on Trump again.

Unfortunately, this is not all about Donald Trump and the so called visit from the FBI.  It can be about the January 6th show trial, the evidence that a person who you are programmed to hate does not deserve due process.

It is Congressman Scott Perry having his cell phone seized by the FBI.

It is Hillary Clinton merchandising the FBI raid by creating T-shirts and hats saying “but her e-mails?”

Clinton began promoting “but her emails” clothing only a day after Trump’s personal residence was stormed. That seems to be a quick turnaround time considering everyone claims the raid blindsided them. She is blatantly bragging that intelligence agencies never came after her in any meaningful way.

It is a way she is rubbing people’s noses in the fact that no one is locking her up.

Imagine the anger that would be raised if Hunter Biden sold  “but his laptop” hats to laugh that he is above the law.

The violence that is coming – is the same type of violence when you kick the fence to trigger a dog.

You  know the old saying about kicking a sleeping giant—well, they are kicking and when they get their response they act as if they are all innocent.

Raiding the private home of President Donald Trump was like kicking that sleeping giant. If people weren’t already fired up to come out to kick the Democrats out, this just made them more energized to do so.

We all knew it was coming and the feigning of surprise and shock by the left wing media is embarrassing.

It’s not the first time we have seen the threat to ignite a civil war as the country remains bitterly divided by politics. Political scientists have warned the public for months that this could happen soon.

Now it appears that those we have chosen to lead us want nothing more than to seed the prospects of civil war by humiliating and not representing 50 percent of the people.

When you have politicians who are riling everyone up and law enforcement that has been told to back off an go soft on crime — we will be seeing an uprising not unlike what we have seen movies like the Purge of Joker.

Political pundits wish to soften the blow by calling it a national divorce from government — if the people decide to reject their government, then there is little the federal government can do to stop it and as with any civil war in the world — there is always an existential threat where the U.N. can intervene or some other armies that are called in to keep order in the country.

But I would hate to think that the next phase in this country wide humiliation is to drag Trump out into the streets ideally on national television and shoot him — no different than what is done in third world countries.

As the deep-state spooks and the corporate media have been relentlessly repeating for the last four years, the man is both a Russian-backed traitor and literally the resurrection of Hitler! In terms of baddies, it doesn’t get any better.

The perception of the people has been a big example of social engineering.

There is insatiable need to make the public and future generations  perceive Trump as a criminal an illegitimate leader, an usurper and the mastermind behind a scripted and highly overwrought coup de tat.

The corporate media are hard at work manufacturing this version of reality, not only in the content of their “reporting,” but also with the unbridled contempt they are showing for someone who represents a political party that they wish to destroy.

We have already been fed the lies that Right wing extremists are committing crimes against the left –when it has been angry left wing supporters who have attacked representatives and have harassed them when they are out in public.


We are becoming fed up with the continued crushing of our country’s morale.

The USA meltdown has been decades in the making and is the collateral result of an elite predation that has degraded structural elements needed for a healthy and resilient nation.

Personal and community motivation and inventiveness have been snapped. The very motor of a vibrant modern society is jammed and the entire system becomes a system of debt-ransom extraction and management of globalized exploitation for the benefit of a secluded elite.

The plot is pretty obvious by now as it is in all big-budget action spectacles.

The fun isn’t in guessing what is going to happen. Everybody knows what’s going to happen–and there are those that know exactly what is happening and while sitting the safety of their own homes –hope that someone does something — someone fires the first shot — or something hash tag activism hash tag.

People are angry, and getting angrier by the day. But they certainly are showing restraint — right now it is all talk and wondering when the starting gun will fire –and they will get the word to storm Washington again.

Approximately three hours after Trump announced the FBI raid on his social media platform, Truth Social – “Civil War” had been tweeted more than 35,000 times and became trending in the Political figures and Politics categories.

Some posts, such as one from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, likened the FBI’s raid on Trump’s home as “the type of things that happen in countries during civil war.” She added, “The political persecution MUST STOP!!!”

Other users said the FBI’s actions were akin to waging civil war. Some who supported the raid accused Trump supporters of using the raid as an excuse to start civil war.

Other trending keywords included “Hillary” referring to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with nearly 80,000 tweets, “Wray” referring to FBI director Christopher Wray with 35,000 tweets, “Garland” referring to Attorney General Merrick Garland with more than 81,000 tweets.

The government has literally weaponized federal agencies against political enemies.

The US Department of Justice has now shown that they can violate the rights and liberties of Americans at all levels of our society.

If you become a political enemy in any form you can face the same treatment as former President Trump.

How can this be constitutional?

This type of behavior could lead to the use of death squads to hunt down political enemies –similar to what was seen in Chile or Argentina during the Dirty war. What is happening now is what has happened with past rogue states.

How can this not be seen as a threat to the republic? Have you not already recognized that a “resistance” is still going on as the left is still chasing phantoms that they think exist in the previous administration?

Trump is being impeached again, and again and again even now when he isn’t even President — can they do any worse? Of course they can.

Former NYPD commissioner Bernard Kerik said that  he is worried Democrats might try to assassinate former President Donald Trump.

Kerik joined The Balance with host Eric Bolling, where he said he feels Trump is in grave danger – not only from politically-motivated prosecution but from the threat of death. He said:

“If you remember back in 2016, right before he got elected, I was in Washington D.C. I was at a couple of different social events, and I hear people talking, they said the Democrats want this guy so bad that they wouldn’t put assassination behind it. And I’m gonna tell you something. they’ve tried impeachment, they’ve tried another impeachment, they’ve tried one investigation after another.

This is about one thing: this is about stopping him from running in 2024. And I’m going to tell you something, I’m not into conspiracies, I’m not into antigovernmental rhetoric. This is the first time in my lifetime that I would say I am deathly afraid for Donald Trump. I would not put assassination behind these people.”

That is what a lot of people are sensing and as I have said there has been this underlying feeling that that there will be brutal assaults and killing of politicians and judges in order to seal in blood the action of civil war.

At the end of the day, Donald Trump is being tried for something he didn’t do: “inciting” a riot that never really happened. But, of course, it’s not really about Donald Trump. It’s about what he represents, and further about sending a message.

Donald Trump was never what so many millions of Americans clearly believed him to be – he was never going to destroy the system from the inside and restore the America-that-was. He was never going to drain the swamp. But millions of people thought he could, and should, and would. And that’s a very dangerous idea.

Kings with puffed up ideas of overturning the system wind up becoming casualties of spectacle much like Kennedy.

The system is broken and there are people on the sidelines wondering if anyone besides them are going to do something about it.

The system was broken long before Trump — but this constant dredging of a fabricated past is doing more harm than good in this country,

The sad thing is that the left now expects us to live in this reality that is made up as we go along. Whatever goes wrong we can always finger a scapegoat in Donald Trump.

Make the rules, break the rules, change the rules. Tie people in knots until they can believe totally contradictory ideas. It is the ultimate display of power and control.

The irony being we really do have a “reality crisis”, we really DO live in a “post truth age”, but it was deliberately created and is incredibly useful to the people in charge.

Ignore the brainwashing that associates the words “America” and “democracy” and the idea of “rule of law”. Reject all that programming we’ve all been subjected too since we first watched television that tells us this kind of thing just doesn’t happen here.

It does, and it is happening right now.

This is not an example of freedom or democracy, this is what is done in a dirty war,

This is how the government at all levels—federal, state and local—now responds to those who speak out against government corruption, misconduct and abuse. I would agree that if the FBI can be used for strong-arming of political enemies – it can be used to strongarm citizens that have grievances they wish to express.

These overreaching, heavy-handed lessons in how to rule by force have become standard operating procedure for a government that communicates with its citizenry primarily through the language of brutality, intimidation and fear.

I can say that I am frightened for our country but what is more frightening is that people cannot see beyond their political hate in order to understand that this is bigger than Donald Trump.

There’s a pattern emerging if you pay close enough attention.

This is the intelligence and security branch of this country being used to enforce tyranny.

They want us divided. They want us to turn on one another. They want us powerless in the face of their new political gestapo.

They want us silent, servile and compliant.

    Clyde, it was good to hear you encourage voting on last night’s show, especially since that is part of what it will take to clean up the mess you refer to in the above paragraph, in part because of these gutless,, spineless,, cowardservative, Wimpublicans, and, especially since in the past, the very recent past you have stated that you do not vote. Does this have anything to do with that picture of you I saw on your Facebook page, Wednesday night, August 10, 2022, with you posing with Liam’s family wearing that,”CLYDE FOR PRESIDENT,” tee-shirt? Even though the constitution doesn’t say one has to be a registered voter to run for president, or any other political, it is pretty much tradition or the law, especially to be a poll worker here in Pennsylvania. I know, I am one, from 2014 through 2017, I was the duly elected Majority Inspector of Election, and from 2018 through 2021,when pretty much everyone with a D, after their name bought it, I was the duly elected Minority Inspector of Election, for the borough. This year I have been serving as the, “Machine Inspector.” If you are some kind of political candidate, I feel reasonably certain the FCC., and the FEC., will be interested for various reasons, including, EQUAL TIME, and how you are financing said campaign. The former you will probably be able to avoid by going full podcast, maybe streaming. I don’t know about the latter. I imagine you will have to address the issue of all those inconsistencies I raised, Wednesday night, August 10, 2021, as well. Then there is that big inconsistency, that first show after, January 6, 2021, when you had David John Oates, the Reverse Speech man on and it sounded like you were going along with the insurrection narrative, so much so that he sounded quite put off, and I was so put off that I turned that show off, and he is one of my favorite guests of yours; and that ,” democracy test,” sounds a bit weak, afterall it can be interpreted as those people challenging the fraudulent results are questioning,/challenging democracy, this democracy, itself. I don’t know if that,”CLYDE FOR PRESIDENT,” tee-shirt was meant to be a joke, but unfortunately, it seems to have backfired, I am sorry to write. I don’t know who your advisor(s), were, political or otherwise on this was, but you would probably be well advised to replace them in the event of a real campaign, Clyde.

    We are certainly in an extremely unsettling, and tumultuous time in history. Clyde is right in saying our system is broken, and has been, long before Donald Trump became president. The crash and burn of the United States has been coming since at least 2000 (really all the way back to the Kennedy assassination). Think of the vast societal changes that have occurred in just the past 20+ years, as the Globalists push harder than ever for their desired New World Order. This millennium has brought the internet, cell phones, 9-11, social media, a staged pandemic, a culture war, immense political division, and even Trump’s arrival onto the political scene. And all of this has contributed heavily to create exactly what the Global elite desire: a destabilization of the populous, through mass chaos.

    When the first Bush was president, he said on September 11, 1991: “Now is the time when we can move forward with what we have been working towards for years, a New World Order.” Bush One was hopeful that he and the Globalists had what they needed in 1991 to rapidly expedite their devious plan. But he was mistaken, it could not happen until now, at this point in time. The Globalists still needed to develop and implement technological control, create enough division and fear, and have it all permeate the population. Everything that has happened during this millennium, all of it engineered by the Globalists, has enabled a Great Reset to soon occur, and will allow these psychopaths to really move forward with what Bush wanted, a New World Order. And it feels like that this decade will be their final push. Agenda 2030.

    Clyde talked of his epiphany. I had one myself, last year. I believe that we are in Revelations, and have been since this millennium began. If you believe the Bible, the Apocalypse will occur. Are we living in End Times? Was the destruction of this country, and this world, inevitable, a destiny for mankind, at the turn of this millennium? I know how it is written…but for some reason I still wonder if “the secret” is, mankind can prevent an Apocalypse, but it will take the will of the whole world to do it.

    I do think, if the United States fell into another Civil War, and ultimately collapses, the world will not survive. A U.S. collapse will create a world-wide instability, like never before. Famine, Destruction, and ultimately a World War, will soon follow, which sounds like the Apocalypse…

    I’m an Independent politically, and I have been since Obama was exposed as being just another New World Order puppet! I call it like I see it now. And the Democrats are about Socialism, Communism, and a possible NWO. And Trump is NOT for the Globalists, or the NWO! He wants to keep the U.S. sovereign! Ron DeSantis and Tim Scott are not NWO puppets either! If Trump, Desantis and Scott are the present and the future, the U.S. may be able to overcome this world-wide push for Socialism/Communism, and the NWO!

    I can’t envision the world surviving a U.S. Civil War. And I don’t think the Globalists can survive an Apocalypse, so I don’t fell like a Civil War, or even an escalated Dirty War, is their End Game. Civil War will not come easily to the United States, no matter how much anger, hostility, rhetoric, or even localized skirmishes, occur amongst the population. We will see a prolonged Martial Law in the U.S., before a Civil War. Martial Law in the U.S. may very well be the Globalists plan. And I don’t put it past them to assinate Trump, either. I’ve been thinking all week that if they did that, Martial Law will immediately follow, because a massive Civil Unrest will encapsulate the entire country.

    The only way I see a Civil War really happening in the U.S., is if it is on a military level. If our entire military was to choose sides, turn this whole country into a battleground, with the amount of Nukes that exist…well, then we’re in Big Trouble!

    It would be like what the musical artist Prince prophesied: “Over, Oops, Out of Time…Party Like it’s 1999.”

    So if he was nominated would you have a spazz?? Count the votes wang, either way, someone will be triggered. Clyde for Prezz would give me some hope that our Republic can still stand in the affront assault of globalism, war, and MSM Mockingbird disinformation and propaganda being parlayed to a gullible and emotionally charged populace. Divide and Conquer….

    The real thing is the Main Stream Media Black out of all the protests/riots going on outside of the Excited States.
    CHECK IT OUT CLYDE … a lot of often bloody protests going on outside of the US of A
    OH speaking of BLOOD, remember Shakespeare in the Park around 2017-18 and how they stabbed a Trumper look a like to
    death? You see Hillary and Bill funded Trump’s Primary run, so Jeb [the smartest Bush] would not win. She was terrfied of Jeb
    But ALAS ,,, there is another Bush/associate, and his name is Ron … and he would benefit GREATLY from
    Trump’s demise. Ronny boy would need two surf boards to ride his coming Red Wave! THINK ABOUT IT, THINK HARD

    All former presidents receive secret service protection and have access to classified information with briefings. They get monthly payments to staff and run their personal offices. They are not allowed to drive and are expected to act as ambassadors. They get a hefty pension. But they are never really retired. To go after one like what just happened is like a coup itself. Because of his legal privileges and secret service protection I dont think its possible to arrest him, Im sure he has realy good private security as well. They might try to assassinate him. There is hope when you see whole states push back against federal overreach. Something i think about is if there is a secession of conservative states then what would happen within liberal states where only the big cities are liberal and the rest of the state is not. I think maybe there would be breakaway areas where whole towns would defend and govern themselves.

    Here is how you fight back.
    Search all the times liberals have attacked the FBI back in the 60’s-80’s when every criminal was a “political prisoner “ and read those statements to today’s woke—then reveal who made the quotes and look at their faces.

    Trump as King maker, not returning King. Recognize that if he re-runs and wins, the despotic left will revolt far beyond the ‘preview’ they gave us when first he ensconced. They won’t physically dispose of their nemesis, as he would truly be and gone and no longer be excoriatible as Nixon, but would then become a martyred US freedom fighter.

    This is just incredible. By leaving the Borders wide open for Terrorists to skip in and do us incredible harm, the Incompentent Bunch in the Biden Admin, via the RAID and ginning up the right wing wild men, have now given cover for Afghan/Iran sponsored terrorists and radical lone wolves to do all these things with Dirty Bombs etc, and then blame it all or make it look like some home grown nuts have done it.

    This is going to get way out of hand now!

    “Wayne,” frequently comments here, too, and misspelled, ” Winner,” and my surname. I have no idea what in my post could possibly incite sedition, anarchy, or create civil unrest leading to civil war, Clyde, unless he is one of those,” gutless, spineless, cowardservative, wimpublicans,” who thinks Mitch McConnell is a great, effective leader and opposes MTG, filing, “Articles of Impeachment,” against Merrick Garland, surprising coming from someone who was a Marine, judging by the,”SEMPER FI,” I would also hope that if it came to it he would take up arms again to help protect us or his neighbor, whomever from being MAR-A-LAGOED, Clyde.

    Clyde is the one who injected hatred into this with his Gmail asking me if I were drunk or a teenager, amongst other things, and many if not all of you would probably feel the same way had he directed such comments at you, that is if you weren’t mostly or all sycophants in the,”CULT OF CLYDE.” If I had wanted to be a Marine, I would have joined the Marines. At two months older than Clyde, I don’t think any branch of the service, yet alone the Marines would enlist me and I have no desire to enlist. I am glad to read that Wayne would still take up arms to defend this country. It seems to me that Wayne is trolling me as much as he claims I am trolling him or Clyde or whomever. As for the newsletter, Clyde, I thought I was already signed up for it after the first submission, you indicated I was signed up for it. If it is free count me in but your Gmail doesn’t state one way or the other, or state a subscription rate, but if it is free, I am in, THANK YOU.
