Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan amid the threat of China shooting her airplane down.  She showed up wearing a mask while talking about COVID-19, Climate Change, and central bank digital currencies. The globalists very much agree about the need to control you, muzzle you, surveil you and inject you. As protesters took to the streets of Taipei, the Chinese military was holding live-fire drills in the South China Sea, and then just like that, the U.S. House Speaker left and nothing actually happened. By now, we need to realize geopolitics has become staged theater. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about AMERICAN WITCH.





I absolutely hate having to point out the stupidity of this current administration and how it tends to spin things in ways that defy your common sense.

Pointing this out, of course, makes you a conspiracy theorist and so far the leaders of this world order are getting a little salty about how their world take over is in the spotlight.

The United Nations has declared war on conspiracy theories, describing the rise of conspiracy thinking as “worrying and dangerous”, and providing the public with a toolkit to “prebunk” and “debunk” anybody who dares to suggest that world governments are anything but completely honest, upstanding and transparent.

The UN also warns that George Soros, the Rothschilds, and the State of Israel must not be linked to any “alleged conspiracies.”

UNESCO has teamed up with Twitter, the European Commission, and the World Jewish Congress to launch the campaign dubbed #ThinkBeforeSharing: Stop the spread of conspiracy theories.

The UN wants you to know that events are NOT “secretly manipulated behind the scenes by powerful forces with negative intent” and if you encounter anybody who thinks the global elite are conspiring to consolidate power and dictate global events, you must take action.

This is a joke, right?

We just revealed two days ago that most fact-checkers are part of the Intelligence apparatus as former CIA and FBI agents are now policing the internet for intel they do not approve of.

According to UNESCO, “if you are certain, you have encountered a conspiracy theory” on the internet then you must “react” immediately post a relevant link to a “fact-checking website” in the comments.

UNESCO also provides advice for anyone who encounters a real live conspiracy theorist in the flesh. According to the UN agency, you must not under any circumstances be lured into an argument with the conspiracy theorist. “Any argument may be taken as proof that you are part of the conspiracy and reinforce that belief” and the conspiracy theorist will probably “argue hard to defend their beliefs.“

Instead you must show “empathy “, avoid “ridiculing them“, and if you are a journalist you must “report” them to social media and “contact your local/national press council or press ombudsman.”

Remarkably, hidden in the fine print, UNESCO admit that conspiracy theories do exist. Under the heading “What is a real conspiracy?” the United Nations bureaucrats explain that “real conspiracies large and small DO exist.”

According to the UN, it’s only a REAL conspiracy theory if it’s “unearthed by the media.”

There is just one problem with the UN’s definition of a “real” conspiracy theory. The media has been fully bought and paid for by the elite. And it’s the elite who are conspiring against the masses.

As I reported days ago Operation Mockingbird is back with a vengeance.

Mockingbird was uncovered by the Church Committee after the Watergate scandal. John F. Kennedy secretly recorded Operation Mockingbird conversations in the Oval Office and they are now part of The Presidential Recordings.

So sure, we should be trusting everything the media and fact-checkers say, right? It’s not like they have a history of being manipulated by shadowy three-letter agencies and the global elite, right?

But that was the 60s and 70s and everything has gotten worse since then. In 2013, Obama signed legislation that repealed the U.S. Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948, also known as the Smith-Mundt Act.

Why is this important?

The Smith-Mundt Act was a so-called anti-propaganda law that prevented the U.S. government’s mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2 2013, Obama quietly and deceitfully changed the law, meaning that the US government and the CIA could legally propagandize US citizens.

Strangely, the mainstream media don’t like to acknowledge this fact. But it suits government agencies and the United Nations down to the ground. Of course, they will tell you to place blind trust in the mainstream media and fact-checkers. Regardless of how many times they get proved wrong, time and time again.

Yes, I am here to spin another conspiracy that we have proof that Operation Mockingbird still exists — a perfect example is the reports about the Nancy Pelosi visit to Taiwan.

So Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan yesterday. It was quite an event. People were asking “is this brinksmanship dangerous?”, or “Will the Chinese shoot down Pelosi’s plane?” Protesters took to the streets of Taipei, the Chinese military is holding live-fire drills in the South China sea. and then just like that Pelosi left, and nothing has actually happened,

Pelosi shows up wearing a mask talking about Covid and Climate Change and central bank digital currencies. They very much agree about the need to control you, muzzle you, surveil you and inject you.

They are all still peddling those globalist Big Lies, even while the saber-rattling has made a lot of people forget that fact.

A big deal for some but for me, it was an example of how stupid and arrogant our leaders are. The narcissism angle has been used on Trump in the past — but this is a completely stupid form of hubris meant to cause confusion.

It certainly may have repercussions for the future.

By now we need to realize geopolitics has become staged theatre.

Imagine what would happen if a top Chinese official emerges from resource depleting a jet in the United States and doing photo ops saying, “We stand with Puerto Rico”

Wouldn’t‘ that offend Americans?

I don’t know– I am not a fan of China — but I am not fond of Pelosi nor am I fan of the media praising this stupidity.

It left me without words.,

Yesterday a couple of listeners wrote me e-mails asking why I did not talk about Pelsoi’s Trip to Taiwan and how it is being seen as an international incident and a threat to China. They also weres ayiong that there was a synchonicity with the visist and that is she arrived on the anniversary of the Gulf Of Tonkin Incident.

In August 1964, the United States entered the Vietnam War after reports of an unprovoked attack in the Gulf of Tonkin. But the reports were false — and the president

knew it.

On August 2, it was attacked by North Vietnamese torpedo boats. And then, two days later, on August 4, the Johnson administration claimed that it had been attacked again. After the second attack, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution almost unanimously allowing the federal government to “take all necessary measures” to protect U.S. forces in Vietnam.

It was as close to a declaration of war that the Johnson administration would ever get. But it was based on a lie.

After decades of public skepticism and government secrecy, the truth finally came out: In the early 2000s, nearly 200 documents were declassified and released by the National Security Agency.

They showed that there was no attack on August 4. U.S. officials had distorted the truth about the Gulf of Tonkin incident for their own gains — and perhaps for Johnson’s own political prospects.

The comparison to Pelosi’s much-hyped near execution can be seen as a parallel — only if she becomes a sacrifice on the altar for war. Whatever happens in this situation it certainly is doing some diplomatic damage.

There were billboard signs all over Taipei that gave her a less than warm welcome calling her an American Witch.

But of course, the media would have you believe that her visit was like the countdown to the New Year.

The Taipei 101 building lit up with a message reading “TW hearts US” as a welcome sign for Nancy Pelosi.

But elsewhere on the island, small groups of protesters, including those who support unification with China, stomped on American flags and held up signs disparaging Pelosi and urging the U.S. delegation to go home. One held up a sign calling Pelosi an “American witch.”

At a news conference with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen on Wednesday, Pelosi was asked what she could offer Taiwan to offset the possible costs the island would incur — including economic retaliation from China — as a consequence of her visit.

She answered that her visit was part of a broader U.S. effort to have “better economic exchanges” with Taiwan, and she said “significant” Taiwanese businesses “are already planning to invest in manufacturing in the United States.” She also praised “the ingenuity, the entrepreneurial spirit, the brainpower, the intellectual resource that exists in Taiwan,” and called the island’s tech sector “a model.”

In a Microsoft news poll, 28% believed that it’s highly unlikely that her visit poses a threat to the island.

The parallel with the Gulf of Tonkin incident so far seems relevant but it is also low lying fruit as I can draw another parallel form history and that is the incident that sparked World War I.

There were many European news organizations that see Pelosi as a possible Archduke Francis Ferdinand where his assassination sparked the first World War.

Her harm or death would trigger a massive international incident, the likes of which has not been seen since 1914.

Archduke Franz Ferdinand’s visit to Sarajevo in 1914 was an instructive lesson on how arrogant leaders do, at some point, ask for it.

Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in June 1914, which prompted Austria-Hungary to declare war on Serbia, triggering World War I.

Already unpopular, Ferdinand took his cue to visit on a day regarded with mournful reverence by Serbs: St. Vitus Day.

In 1389, the Serbs fought the Turks in the Battle of Kosovo with catastrophic losses. Myth and fact commingled, thereby producing legend.

Few security measures were taken for the Archdukes visit, The drive through Sarajevo was made in an open-topped car. The Archduke and his wife, the equally unpopular Countess Sophie, were riding along when a terrorist group known as The Black Hand lobbed a hand grenade to strike the intended target, injuring the occupants of the car behind.

Now, Instead of laying low ans realizing that he and his wife were in danger they continued to the planned reception at City Hall. They then made themselves inviting targets by wishing to see members of the injured party in the hospital. On the way to the hospital, the driver took the wrong turn, presenting Gavrilo Princip with a juicy target. The couple were shot and killed by the assassin that just happened to be in the right place at the right time to make history,

Riots and protests followed, with Austria-Hungary declaring war on Serbia on July 28.

This set the trains of war in motion across Europe, leaving millions of dead and a continent primed for the next global conflict. The dumb had gotten a good number of Europe’s populace killed.

Like the doomed Archduke, Pelosi has shown and continues to show, little awareness about what her trip to Taiwan entails. This visit to Taiwan is far from being some innocent Freedom trek to show her courage to stand up to the Chinese oligarchy.

For now she escaped the fate of Ferdinand –but can she escape the fact that her trip is just another example of the hubris of this administration and the way they like to confuse the American people into spinning conspiracy theories?

The Biden administration forgives her visit as an independent decision made by a person independent of government. That makes for a good sound bite but Biden is being disingenuous in order to cover her hubris.

Last time I checked she was speaker of the house meaning that if Biden just happens to die from rebound Covid, and Kamala Harris laughs herself into a coma — she is next in line for the presidency.

Saying she is independent of the government is insane.

Pelosi has been merrily hawkish in stirring turds in the People’s Republic of China. “Our visit,” she tweeted, “reiterates that America stands with Taiwan: a robust, vibrant democracy and our important partner in the Indo-Pacific.” In traveling to the province, the Speaker was honoring a commitment to democracy, “reaffirming that the freedoms of Taiwan – and all democracies – must be respected.”

Again another soundbite meant to stir up some mock patriotic nonsense that her supporters eat up, being unaware or will filly aware that Washington does not, in principle, recognize Taiwan’s independence.

Big gaffe there but hey, that is show biz.

National Security coordinator John Kirby, back in Washington, reiterated the point in a press briefing. “We are clear that nothing has changed about our One China policy which is guided by the Taiwan Relations Act. We do not support Taiwan’s independence.” The Biden administration continued to be “clear with the Chinese about where we stand on the issues and the One China policy and our support for a free and open Indo-Pacific.”

The whole attitude about the trip is two-faced in the first place.

President Joe Biden had noted in late July that the then rumored trip was not prudent, at least in the mind of some voices in the Pentagon. “The military thinks it’s not a good idea right now.” He then went on to say that he knew “what the status of it is.”

Unfortunately for those outside the US, such a status is simply not clear. While Kirby did say that the President had “made clear that Congress is an independent branch of government and that Speaker Pelosi makes her own decisions, as other members of Congress do, about their overseas travel,

I think they hope that Americans will think that what Pelosi is doing is innocent and that the President has made it clear that she goes to Taiwan as not a member of the government.

But it is not true and those outside of our political propaganda don’t see it that way,

Have we forgotten that Biden has taken three shots against the strategic ambiguity of the One China policy by suggesting at various points that US forces would be deployed in a battle over Taiwan?

The whole shenanigan is filled with Orwellian doublethink.

The Biden administration has hidden behind the trappings of US political protocol. Let Congress decide what it wants, and we will have our own policy. Focus, instead, on Beijing’s bad faith and refusal to understand the situation and if Pelosi becomes a liability and we go to war — Biden has plausible deniability.

The media would spin it so his hands are clean.

National Security coordinator John Kirby has also said that:

“We expect to see China use inflammatory rhetoric and disinformation in the coming days And not just that, given that China was “positioning itself to potentially take further steps in the coming days and, perhaps, over the long-time horizon.”

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi threatened ahead of the visit that US politicians who “play with fire” with respect to Taiwan would “come to no good end.” Officially, Beijing’s officials have warned of “serious consequences”.

Spokesman Zhao Lijian’s warning was also some very impressive saber-rattling:

“If the US side is bent on going its own way, China will take strong measures to resolutely respond and counteract.” So far, Chinese war planes have flown close to the median line of the Taiwan Strait, while Beijing has imposed a number of import bans on select Taiwanese products.”

The political arithmetic is clear. Pelosi’s arrival, along with a delegation from Congress, risks sparking a fourth Taiwan strait crisis.

The media have done their best to spin this diplomatic dumpster fire by talking about has heatwaves, the usual celebrity gossip, January 6th, and discussion about local elections.

It appears that most of America really isn’t that concerned about Pelosi and whether or not she would be some trumped-up martyr for some nebulous cause.

This is probably why I decided the story was not as urgent as some people do. In some dark way — I figured it would be more newsworthy if she did and up like Francis Ferdinand.

All it takes now is a bullet, a misfire, an accident, and the dumb will be dead, again, taking the rest of us along with them.

    Clyde, if you listened to any talk radio shows, yesterday Tuesday , August 3, 2022, THE DANA SHOW, and MARK LEVIN SHOW, you would have learned that RED CHINA has no historical claims to Taiwan. We have more to much more claims to Puerto Rico than China does Taiwan. Every few years they have a referendum on whether to declare independence from THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and they keep the status quo. As for KINKY KLOWN above, with books like, “LAPTOP FROM HELL,” that I am reading now, the CHI COMS don’t need to release any juicy bits on the Bidens. It is pretty much all there.

    I’ve been retired for a year and a half and this mess isn’t exactly what I had in mind. We all thought this was just some crazy evil Bond villain crap but it turns out it’s as real as it can be. The fools that have fiddled with weather manipulation don’t have any idea the damage they’ve done. It’s as if they think they’re playing a video game. The elites that want to reduce pop to 500mil ought to be first in line. Where is the Punisher when you NEED him?

    That picture of Nancy Pelosi over the monologue is like Brothers Grimm meats Norman Rockwell. If I wanted to scare children at my house, I’d frame it and put it on my kitchen table wall.
