Inflation may have decreased but it remains at 8.3% while core inflation (ex. food and energy) increased to 6.3% in August. The global financial system and its untenable debt supercycle are more than ready for total collapse – the only question remaining is when the Cult decides to finally pull the plug and set off the crash to end all crashes. It is a completely controlled matrix that most people do not understand. The idea that inflation has declined but remains high is gaslighting and has all the earmarks of a psy-op. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with economic and financial analyst, Alan Johnson about PSY-OP DEBT TRAP.





There are a lot of cynics, and believe me, I have dealt with any over the years that see people like Alex Jones. Glen Beck and I as an organized system of chicken littles saying the sky is falling, the sky is falling.

Those cynics are wondering when the sky is going to fall as if there is a finale that when they see it they will eventually admit that something is afoot. But seriously it doesn’t work that way,

In reality, we are all running around getting continually doinked on the head by falling acorns. Everyone at one time or another has had an acorn fall on their head and never sees the potential of what this means in the long run.  Some people dodge these acorns because they have prepared ahead of time while others suffer a major blow because they don’t think that it is wise to outsmart a house that at most times wins in the end.

Well, to quote chicken little Look! look! look! The sky is falling!! People are dropping in droves! Death, disease, mayhem! Why don’t you see it?

People are broke, they are hungry and there it is waiting in the wings a Great Reset that purports to have all of the answers telling you that you will own nothing and be happy.

But we all know what their objective has been from day one. They are intentionally trying to eliminate most of the population on earth, well, we chicken littles know this — the others are not so fortunate.

All of these folks look over their shoulder to consult with the Mainstream News or the talking heads they trust whenever they are confronted with any of this and say, “Should I believe this?” And of course, the answer is, No. Do not believe these crazy conspiracy theories — everything is improving and the President is making things easier on every American.

Look! Look! those who doubt — look at all of those good things, those sudden moves that the mainstream reports to someone give you the idea that everything is okay.

Inflation has declined they say Prosperity is just around the corner.  Inflation has declined, yes but it remains at 8.3%. Core inflation (ex. food and energy) increased to 6.3% in August.

The market doesn’t look good — but we are told it bounces back no problem. The global financial system and its untenable debt Supercycle are more than ready for total collapse, the only question remaining is when the Cult decides to finally pull the plug and set off the crash to end all crashes.

You see it is a completely controlled matrix that most people do not understand.  The idea that inflation has declined but remains high is gaslighting and has all the earmarks of a psy-op,

And yet those who do not see themselves as chicken littles hide behind their anonymity and are now facing the ugly speculation that economically the United States faces peril.

A new YouGov/Economist poll asking Americans about the likelihood of various “dire political scenarios” found that half the country think that within ten years the US will no longer be a global superpower and there will be a “total economic collapse.”

Among 15 potential future scenarios involving instability or political violence, the one that most Americans consider likely in the next decade is that the U.S. ceases to be a global superpower (50% say this), followed by a total collapse of the U.S. economy (47%). Each of the 15 dire scenarios is considered somewhat or very likely in the next decade by at least 20% of Americans.

37% of Americans say [a civil war] is at least somewhat likely to occur.

While a similar share of Republicans and Democrats believe it’s at least somewhat likely that the U.S. will cease to be a democracy in the next decade, there is disagreement as to which type of government is likely to replace it. Democrats are slightly more likely than Republicans to say the U.S. will be a fascist dictatorship (37% vs. 32%). Republicans, on the other hand, are three times as likely as Democrats to say it will be a communist dictatorship (31% vs. 13%).

In terms of the possibility of a civil war, Republicans are likelier than Democrats to believe there will be one between members of each party (45% vs. 35%) or between people from red and blue states (36% vs. 30%). Democrats are slightly more likely than Republicans to believe there will be a war between the poor and rich (37% vs. 25%) or between cities and rural areas (23% vs. 20%). Democrats and Republicans are equally likely (31%) to expect a civil war between racial groups.

Are Americans ready to wade through the dead bodies just to get that last crust of bread? Yea that sounds alarmist — but budgets, for now, are getting tighter, and we are paying for the Wars that are being fought and are being blackmailed in the process.

When asked, Would the government be able to defend itself against an armed citizen uprising? Americans are twice as likely to believe the military and law enforcement would prevail against armed rebels (51%) as they are to say they would fail (26%). While Republicans and Independents have similar expectations on the matter, Democrats are far more optimistic about the government’s prospects: 68% say the military and law enforcement are at least somewhat likely to succeed, relative to 44% of Republicans and Independents.

Judging by the actions of the Biden regime, they’re clearly expecting a similar doomsday scenario to take place as they’re already laying the groundwork by declaring all their political opposition to be white extremists and domestic terrorists.

Our globalist overlords would rather start a civil war in America than give the American people any political concessions. They would rather see the peasants starve while they control the money and the various resources with their 2030 Agenda.

The UN educates young people in developing nations to welcome “Sustainable Development” without disclosing the impact it will have on their lives or their national economy,

Most people are aware of the concept of “Sustainable Development” but, it is fair to say that the majority believe that most of their plan is related to tackling problems allegedly wrought by climate disaster. However, the Agenda 2030 plan encompasses every facet of our lives — especially when comes to a greener economy and the redistribution of wealth.

From economic and food security to education about new foods and substances from insects the world as we know it will evolve into some sort of strange alien planet.

It is reported that  “multi-stakeholder partnerships” are supposed to work together to achieve “macroeconomic stability” in “all countries.” This will be accomplished by enforcing “policy coordination and policy coherence” constructed from the “knowledge” of “public, public-private, and civil society partnerships.

The sustainable development goals will have to meet and with them comes financial pain.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said American households and businesses can expect to experience “pain” and job losses as the central bank aims to bring down red-hot inflation.

“These are the unfortunate costs of reducing inflation,” Powell said. “But a failure to restore price stability would mean far greater pain.”

“While higher interest rates, slower growth, and softer labor market conditions will bring down inflation, they will also bring some pain to households and businesses,” Powell said.

This was mentioned at a business summit in Jackson Hole Wyoming.  This indicates that again, Biden’s Cold Winter will bring in more extreme psychological operations with regard to saying one thing and doing another.

Since March, the Fed has implemented its fastest pace of rate increases in decades to combat inflation, which has punished households with soaring costs for food, gas, rent, and other necessities.

Food shortages continue and many businesses have sought to run cashless.

A sign that is going viral shows an unknown Starbucks coffee house has opted to go cashless on October 1st.  This has started rumors that the whole chain of Starbucks wil follow suit. But according to fact checkers this is not that case.

The U.S. activist group Young Americans for Liberty shared the image on Facebook, writing, “Too many people have no idea how dystopian a ‘cashless society’ is going to be.”

This went viral — but according to the fact checking services, this does not mean that some Starbucks establishments may experiment with the possibility.

As the central bankers “turn off” physical money flows around the world, someone will need to build the means to have sustainable wealth. The trend has been in crypto currencies, while other investors turn to Gold and silver investments.

The endgame is to total control of the slaves with a cash-free system. Those at the top will fully control a central bank digital currency or CBDC, and once they roll it out, it’s game over for the slave class.

Executive Order 14067 signed by Joe Biden gives the ruling class the power to create CBDCs, distribute them at will, take them from you when they want, and just shut it off if you do something they don’t like.

Much of the executive order is focused on cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and Ethereum, which run on blockchain technology and have become increasingly popular among many investors and consumers in recent years.

But there is an even more important part of the EO: President Biden has instructed the federal government and Federal Reserve to lay the groundwork for a potential new U.S. currency, a digital dollar.

Choosing the CBDC is literally choosing to be a slave. Before we were lied to and propaganda was used to make sure we thought we were free. This is overt, and in our faces now.

Economists are now looking at December 13th, 2022 as C-day, where the rollout of digital traceable money will little by little be implemented.

Whenever the White House says it is working on a plan that would transform a vital part of the U.S. economy, and that the administration is doing so with the “highest urgency,” it should go without saying that the you should pay close attention to what’s going on.

If the United States were to adopt a digital currency like the one discussed in Biden’s executive order, it would be one of the most dramatic expansions of federal power ever made, one that could put individuals and businesses in grave danger of losing their social and economic freedoms.

Among other important actions, the White House executive order directs several federal agencies, including the Treasury Department, to study the development of a new central bank digital currency (CBDC) and to produce a report within 180 days of the EO discussing the potential risks and benefits of a digital dollar.

The order further directs the Treasury Department, Office of the Attorney General, and Federal Reserve to work together to produce a “legislative proposal” to create a digital currency within 210 days, about seven months.

This puts us at October/November as the Whites house issued their statement in March. We reported it then and again it, was called Conspiracy theory.

A digital dollar would not merely be a digital version of the existing U.S. dollar, but rather an entirely new currency that would, at least at first, exist alongside today’s currency. Similar to cash, the CBDC would be used to pay for goods and services and would likely be managed by the Federal Reserve, the central bank of the United States.

Unlike the current dollar, though, a central bank digital currency would not exist in physical form, meaning you wouldn’t be able to go to a bank or ATM and withdraw it.

It is important to understand that the digital dollar would not be similar to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Cryptocurrencies operate on blockchain technology, which is decentralized by design. No group or individual can truly control cryptocurrencies once they are launched.

Digital dollars, on the other hand, would be traceable and programmable. The Federal Reserve (or some other designated entity) would have the ability to create more digital dollars whenever it sees fit, and, depending on how the legislation is written setting up the currency, the dollars could be formulated to have various rules and restrictions built into their design.

For example, a digital dollar could be crafted to restrict fossil-fuel use, give bonuses to people for spending at particular businesses, enact de facto price controls by disallowing users from spending too much on particular products, or even redistribute wealth.

In one report about the development of a central bank digital currency published by the Federal Reserve in January, the Fed outlined a few examples of possible “design choices” for a digital dollar, including that “a central bank might limit the amount of CBDC an end user could hold.”

There are many reasons to believe Biden’s plan for a digital dollar involves a design that will give the federal government and/or Federal Reserve control over much of society and the economy. Biden’s executive order states that the CBDC and other policies governing digital assets must mitigate “climate change and pollution” and promote “financial inclusion and equity.”

In fact, “financial inclusion” is mentioned five times in Biden’s order, and “equity” and “climate change” are mentioned four times each.

In creating a new digital currency, the Biden administration will “continue to partner with all stakeholders — including industry, labor, consumer, and environmental groups, international allies, and partners.”  Why would labor unions, industry organizations, and environmental groups be involved in the development of a new currency — unless, of course, there is a plan to program that currency to advance various causes special-interest groups care about?

So wear does that leave you — yes it leaves you confused and in a debt trap.

David Andolfatto, a senior vice president and economist in the St. Louis Fed’s Research Division, was asked whether the Fed could “assure us [the public] that these digital currencies won’t ever be used to tell us when, how or where our money can be spent?”

“In life, one can’t give absolute assurances of anything,” Andolfatto responded before suggesting that “the best we can hope for” is for Congress to “respond to the electorate’s concerns” about privacy.

It’s clear that the Biden administration and Fed are working together to create a controllable, traceable, programmable digital currency. And if they are successful, life in America might never be the same.

Sheep have a myriad of reasons why they don’t wake up, not the least being they simply are not impressed with the information they get from people who do real reporting –instead of the talking heads who speak on behalf of the Pentagon.

It is obvious that political cultism is going to kill us all.

Most people don’t believe or want to accept the fact our leaders are that corrupt and evil, despite daily evidence, this is so. The cognitive dissonance is too heavy to bear. They think when we show data about eugenics, global depopulation and the gutting of the economy to starve people we’re the ones who are misinformed or crazy.

They are too wedded to their ideologies, cults of personality, and propaganda, they are afraid to think for themselves. The Mainstream media and the digital monopoly media are their Bibles and gurus, their powers of discernment and critical thinking have atrophied, and some are even comatose.

Others don’t want to be ostracized, marginalized, browbeaten, or have their professional licenses, certificates, and funding taken away.

But oh, it all depends on what you call funding.

Mark Twain once said, “it is easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.”

We are seeing this in real-time on a daily basis.

    September, 21, 2022, is the date our , FEDERAL RESERVE , BOARD OF GOVERNORS, is scheduled to meet, and raise interest rates at least three quarters of a percentage point, Clyde.

    It is one thing to be concerned about one’s own country, and to put one’s own country first, Clyde, as you allege of your man Putin, but he doesn’t have to plunder and pillage Ukraine to do it, as he is now, but if he does go nuclear, ie., use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, as you said you suspect he will, he will go down in history with the likes of Ghengis Khan, ie., the worst, most notorious, infamous individual in history.

    Then again, Clyde, this said aforementioned scenario to nuke Ukraine you mentioned earlier, is what Putin was trying to accomplish when he had that Ukrainian nuclear power plant you talked about on your, Friday, August 19, 2022, program shelled while those nuclear inspectors there, at his invitation, that you mentioned on this same broadcast.

    Something i noticed a while back is more companies even small ones offering 401k retirement plans. This gives a lot of money to the stock market. This has propped it up. Yesterday the dow dropped over 1200 points. With the cost of living going up still. These retirement plans are worth less and less. I know people who tell me they lose money in their 401k and i ask them why they do it and they say its better than nothing. I say put it in a savings account or have just money go in instead buying stocks. Its a type of gamble, if you know what your doing you make money, but most people with 401k’s dont know. But its weird that their letting others play with their money, this federal digital currency sounds similar except worse because its your money you need now not later, the economy is shifting to necessary spending with less money for everything else, what a downward spiral.

    September 24, that sounds like the same date the 2008, Financial collapse occurred, as for the one that is supposed to happen, Saturday, September 24, 2022, on a weekend, and sounds like a prediction made on your show a few months ago, I also commented on, in which it sounds alot like the same scenario of the CHI COMS calling in all of the loans they gave us, since the bulk of our foreign debt is owed to them I say again if they won’t let us negotiate favorable terms-wev’e already given them plenty of oil from our STRATEGIC RESERVE- and Biden could easily repeal thet student loan forgiveness, afterall it was done with an Executive Order, with no congressional approval, as per the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, then we should offer to default on the debt, altogether, which would harm China as much as us.
    As for our national collapse leading to a great new rebirth, as long as it doesn’t lead to a Christian or Judaeo-Christian Theocracy, like ,” THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN,” where they stone people to death for just being gay, and if that fails, throw them head first off a roof from six stories high, although this would be good punishment for pedophiles and child groomers and stops using religion as a tool to keep women and children beaten down and oppressed, and I am not talking about the Abortion issue. I once quit a job as opposed to clean out an Abortion Clinic, so I am no ABORTION LOVING WHORE OF BABYLON. It has been said, and is probably true that if it weren’t for religion, we would be centuries ahead of where we are in science, made it to the moon and beyond centuries ago, and after hearing that biblical quote about Satan being the ,”prince of the skys,” from Nick Pope and later yourself Clyde I agree religion has held us back in the sciences. Perhaps the next time he is on your show you will discuss it, further, giving your opinions, nor religious fanatics who interpret that Deuteronomy quote about the poor always being with us as some sort of sick edict, either, Clyde.
