Recently, around 22,000 households in Colorado lost the ability to adjust their thermostats after the power company seized remote control of them during their heatwave. For several years, there have been warnings about how the Internet of Things and Smart Meters can be exploited and abused whereby controllers will have access to our appliances and technology. Furthermore, technocrats can determine when to implement “Climate Lockdown” emergency procedures for their own political agendas. We are now witnessing the rise of digital authoritarianism. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about LECTRIC SLAVE.





Our imaginations rely on historical experiences. When imagining what the coming depopulation will look like, it’s natural to envision concentration camp-style industrial extermination programs, herding huddled masses crammed onto boxcars and into the gas chambers.

Ideally, that’s now how this is going to work. The technocrats plan to kill us slowly, by increment, by a thousand cuts, with plausible deniability, preferably by our own hand out of despair.

The aim is to achieve the extermination without the stark imagery and, therefore, to avert any significant push-back before the mission is completed.

If they can talk you into quietly dying via medical assistance or in dying in the privacy of your own techno-coffin alone and hopeless, not stirring up any trouble for the overlords in the process, that’s how they’d prefer things.

It the struggle for the control of you.

There has always been a struggle for world domination and that domination includes mass murder, genocide, and the oppression and enslavement of a group of people at the expense of the powerful and privileged.

The New World Order is already seen as the system of a latter day Babylon that will be implemented with a select elite living in luxury while a dehumanized mass work and live in a highly-monitored hell.

The plan is already underway and while the programming systems like social media have us hooked the next phase is the creation of the Smart City.

Smart City technology is already being sold to us. From Smart security systems to programmable vacuum cleaners. Each time we want a new and convenient gadget, we lose control to the gadget and that gadget is under the control of the manufacturers and even the intelligence operations of this country.

Technology has always been a critical force deeply intertwined with the evolution of cities. From the first human settlements millennia ago to the industrial revolution to today, technological breakthroughs have impacted the buildings we use, the way we get around, and how we live, work, and play in the urban space.

Now, as we are on the cusp of further rapid shifts in cities precipitated by technology, it is worth imagining what the connected smart city of the future will look like – and the associated impact it will have on our everyday lives.

Take a typical day in the life of a community member in this hypothetical future that wakes up in their connected house with Artificial Intelligence automating everything from temperature preference to light levels to health monitoring and more – and scale it to the city at large.

Cities are beginning to, and will continue to, integrate technological dynamism into municipal operations, from transportation to infrastructure repair and more.

The back ends of these systems are not always apparent to the user, but as the integration of smart cities technologies becomes more visible in our everyday lives, we could begin to see large scale changes in our cities.

Autonomous Vehicles on our roadways and the data that they provide could create environments where traffic lights become obsolete; traffic itself becomes a thing of the past, and cities can once again be for people rather than cars, as different modes of transportation work in tandem and communicate with each other.

The sales pitch is you will own nothing and be happy — that is, of course, if you give up your will, agency and sovereignty to a group of controllers that own you — controllers that treat you like a zoo animal than that of a human being.

Legacy systems will be eliminated as the controllers continue their purge of reliable utilities only to be replaced by state-approved electric energy devices.

It seems that nearly everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon of using electricity as the alternative energy source, and now we are moving into research into how farm products can be moved to market as well as how they are grown in the fields.

But did anyone stop to think that we are loading up on electric equipment without thought on how we will generate all the needed electricity?

California narrowly avoided implementing rotating outages on Monday while officials warned that the state’s power grid will face a bigger test on Tuesday amid a record-breaking heat wave.

The state’s grid operator canceled its grid emergency late Monday evening after deploying supplies that helped keep the lights on even as electricity use soared to its highest level in five years.

Power demand is forecast to be even higher on Tuesday, potentially reaching an all-time high as business and schools reopen after the long Labor Day holiday weekend amid triple-digit temperatures.

The prospect of outages underscores how grids have become vulnerable in times of extreme weather – either severe Summer heat or overwhelming Winter cold.

The grids seem to be buckling and I am sure the answers will all be given as to how we can beat this vulnerable energy fiasco.

We have state mandates that dictate a major portion of our electricity must be generated using alternative sources like solar and wind, yet we constantly see that large-scale projects that could generate megawatts of power are stopped by poor public policy and litigation.

It is all being pushed by over zealous Climate Change cultists.

There are so many facets to the Climate Crisis but the bottom line is control and depopulation for resources in the era of the Great Reset.

The global depopulation agenda – driven from on high by the transnational likes of the UN and World Economic Forum – is very real, and more brazenly flaunted with each news cycle.

From global government to controlled supply line demolition, the last two years have vindicated the “conspiracy theorists.” Their wildest prognostications, which were easy to dismiss a couple of years ago — are proven, in hindsight.

The corporate press, as aggregated here, is a half-step away from headlines like “Kill Yourself, Smother Your Children With a Pillow, and Pull the Plug on Grandma’s Oxygen Tank.”

The WEF suggests six small lifestyle adjustments to do your part:

“Eat a largely plant-based diet, with healthy portions and no waste”*

“Buy no more than three new items of clothing per year”

“Keep electrical products for at least seven years”

“Take no more than one short haul flight every three years and one long haul flight every eight years”

“Get rid of personal motor vehicles if you can – and if not keep hold of your existing vehicle for longer”

“Make at least one life shift to nudge the system, like moving to a green energy, insulating your home or changing pension supplier”

You can’t eat beef anymore, you can’t fly on airplanes or drive cars, and you can’t buy electrical products until you’ve had your old ones for seven years.

Breathing also purportedly drives Climate Change, so we’ll have to do something to remedy that as well.

The bottom line is that if someone is bold enough and willing to make the sacrifice, they would certainly volunteer to give their lives for the cause.

President Biden wants you to believe in this whole democracy fairy tale but he knows as well as his handlers that if his controllers want that Green future, they are going to have to force behaviors on people.

U.S. regulators proposed stringent requirements for publicly traded companies to report information on greenhouse-gas emissions and risks related to Climate Change, in one of the Biden administration’s potentially most significant environmental actions to date.

The Securities and Exchange Commission formally offered a 534-page proposal that would force publicly traded companies to report greenhouse-gas emissions from their own operations as well as from the energy they consume, and to obtain independent certification of their estimates.

In some cases, companies also would be required to report greenhouse-gas output of both their supply chains and consumers, known as Scope 3 emissions. An SEC official said most companies in the S&P 500 would likely have to report Scope 3 emissions. Companies would have to include the information in SEC filings such as annual reports.

This would force companies to be the climate gestapo forcing their wishes on others; simply, a climate fascist state.

No longer would you be in control of your consumption of energy — they would ration it like food and weaponize it in order to eliminate or purge 90 percent of the population.

Such an endeavor, so casually bandied about on the stage as if was suggesting Thai food for dinner, would make the Holocaust and the worst excesses of 20th-century communist dictators look like child’s play.

But there are several ways it can be done with plausible deniability. There are so many ways that technology will leave us vulnerable.

I guess many people will not learn their lessons from the COVID-19 abuses and now we are hearing about people dying unexpectedly from unknown health complications.

There are also the mounting cases of depression that are taking its toll on American lives.

It turns out that bankrupting the average blue-collar worker with forced lockdowns, handing his job to a robot, forcing him to let his dog die for climate change, and taking away all his material possessions raises suicide and drug overdose risk.

But there are plenty of scapegoats — from Fentanyl to freak weather disasters from Climate Change that are used to show that is is a health crisis that feeds on itself.

While deaths from natural disasters have fallen by two-thirds over the past five decades, mostly thanks to technological innovations, elites insist that climate change is the “biggest threat modern humans have ever faced.” Climate lockdowns and other restrictions will be framed as saving the people of the United States, and the world, from themselves.

Anyone against such measures could be labeled a “climate denier” who stands against progress or simply, a “domestic terrorist.” Defectors likely won’t have much choice, anyhow. Facial recognition and plate-reading software, coupled with the impressive scope of drones, and the invention of Smart appliances that report you to authorities, which could lead to severe enforcement.

We could easily see new taxes being enforced that would financially burden those without electric cars. This would force a type of climate lockdown where your alternative would be telecommuting or using public transportation.

The ability for officials to depend on a significant minority of zealous supporters to enforce measures is invaluable, as well.

Think of all of the Karen’s that existed during COVID-19 and then think of the Climate Karen’s that have the power to restrict your use of power that you pay for.

Political leaders have learned that fear prompts the public to accept dramatic curtailing of freedoms for vague promises of safety — they must realize the incredible power at their fingertips.

You will be held responsible for your personal carbon footprint, enforced by either law or social convention.

Climate lockdowns are not some conspiracy theory or a figment of you imagination. They are happening as we speak, little-by-little.

I am sure many have you heard by now the wicked irony from a news story in California.

California lawmakers passed legislation that would ban the sale of new gas-powered vehicles in the state by 2035, mandating all new vehicles must be either electric or hydrogen-powered.

Then, as if the government there doesn’t care about embarrassment, California asked residents to limit themselves on charging electric vehicles.

California Governor Gavin Newsom asked all Californians to not charge their electric vehicles between the hours of 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. while California deals  with an energy shortage during this massive heat wave that is bearing  down on the state.

A statewide grid emergency was called in California and officials warned residents that blackouts could be possible during the energy shortfall.

California also asked its residents to turn up their thermostats and turn off their lights.

In California, it appears that they ask nicely for citizens to comply — in Colorado apparently, it is a different story entirely.

Around 22,000 households in Colorado lost the ability to control their thermostats after the power company seized control of them during  their heatwave.

After temperatures soared past 90 degrees, residents were left confused when they tried to adjust their air conditioning and found locked controls displaying a message that said “energy emergency.”

Xcel confirmed to local news station Denver7 that “22,000 customers who had signed up for the Colorado AC Rewards program were locked out of their smart thermostats for hours last Tuesday.

Thermostats were locked at 79 degrees and no one could override the controls.

This story is yet another example of how Smart Meters will pave the way for energy rationing.

We have spoken of how Smart Meters can control household appliances if the power company feels you are using too much energy.

This can be seen as the first example of “Climate Lockdown.”

People in major European countries are already having their thermostats regulated in response to the energy crisis.

In Spain, at the height of summer, authorities have controversially banned air conditioning from dropping below 80.6°F in all non-residential buildings, including shops, cinemas and cafes.

Onerous fines for those who flout the rules run all the way up to €600,000 euros for “serious violations.”

Similar rules have also been announced in Germany, Italy and France.

So what exactly is a Climate Lockdown scenario and how will it be implemented?

Well many of the tenets have already been employed off and on during the summer.

Public health agendas for the future have included Climate Lockdown emergency procedures.

For example, the government  can set limits on how and when people use their private vehicles. In California’s case, it was when it would be appropriate to charge their vehicles.

There can and will be further (unspecified) “extreme energy-saving measures”. It would likely include previously suggested bans on air travel, and now we can see that the power authority can and will control thermostats in homes with Smart Meters and smart appliances.

Cities and states would begin a gradual and discrete ramp-up of restrictions. We have now witnessed some extreme circumstances with thermostat restrictions but there are more draconian measures that could happen in the future — maybe this Winter.

Not enough energy or budget to heat a school?  There is a lockdown for that. Schools, especially those heavily influenced by teachers’ unions, could impose permanent online-only days claiming that there is not enough money to heat the classroom.

At the same time, either through direct government fiat or due to ineffective green energy policies, some areas of the country could regularly experience California-style rolling blackouts. And as fossil fuels (and nuclear power) go by the wayside, more states could impose electric car only laws like California.

California will ban the sale of gasoline cars , as will Germany. Britain plans to do the same in  eight years, The argument is that prohibiting internal combustion engines could save the planet.

As each negative weather event is blamed on Climate Change, government will increasingly use its restrictive tools.

To reveal the sinister elements of control make one a conspiracy theorist but what is happening is certainly not theory.

There is a common misconception that to believe in so-called “conspiracy theories” is to somehow lose sight of the bigger picture or systemic problems. Behind this phenomenon is a mistakenly presumed conflict between understanding the broader, overarching system versus the sinister motives of those in power who administer it when they are inextricably linked.

While we have been told by the Left that the Deep State is there to look after the best interest of the country, we all know that this lie is being told in order to prop up the excuse that we need a Deep State pulling the strings with a President that allegedly thinks that he is above the law.

But when you are dealing with those who wish to push an agenda without oversight, we need to discuss the incompatibility between “the structural and the functional.”

The anti-conspiracists wrongly assume that the more impersonal or wider the lens, the more profound an analysis.

By this logic, the elite are absolved of conscious intent and deliberate pursuit of nefarious self-interest.

As in the Deep State, according to MSNBC was a group of people looking after the country’s best interest protecting us from Trump– and not running the government through covert ops.

We are led to believe that their agenda was just and lawful — and not being used as a weapon to enforce political interests.

It is awkwardly laughable that the mainstream media, academics and even leading progressive figures have  a mechanical, unthinking resistance to assigning intent or recognizing the existence of hidden agendas.

So to them, conspiracy theories are pieces of information that they do not approve of.

On August 15th, I introduced you to a new term. It was a model for future internet operations called Web 3.  I stated that WEB 3 technology with the power of 5G will increase the possibilities of full spectrum surveillance and control by the technocrats.

Indeed, with every new AI surveillance technology that is adopted and deployed without any regard for privacy, Fourth Amendment rights and due process, the rights of the citizenry are being marginalized, undermined and eviscerated.

We are now witnessing the rise of digital authoritarianism.

In the space of 70 years we have automated and electrified human existence, making many everyday tasks easier, eliminated much of the need for back-breaking work and created new areas of endeavor that were just science-fiction or unthought of before World War II.

Now that we have the internet we have gone from a medium of information sharing to that of the Internet of Things where the controllers will have access to all things that are appliances or technology.

For many years, there have been warnings about how the Internet of things can be exploited and abused.

About 588 million smart meters have been installed worldwide according to a report last year by Global Data UK Ltd., a consultancy. Once you include other connected devices and grid operators’ own control systems, that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Completely losing control over the temperature of your own home is presumably one of the many benefits of the green energy ‘Great Reset’ Americans will be forced to endure.

The story out of Colorado is yet another example of how smart meters will pave the way for energy rationing.

No doubt, Americans who have them installed will increasingly find their thermostats remote controlled at the behest of energy companies whenever a dubious ‘crisis’ can be declared.

And if that sounds bad, just imagine what will happen if net zero green energy ‘climate lockdowns’ become normalized.

    Yes I remember a while back when you mentioned the possibility of climate lockdowns and of course it sounded totally logical it was an excellent prediction. And this is why it was so important for them to win the 2020 election because with the current administration installed they will go right along with the globalist WEF/UN etc sponsored climate change lockdowns. And that’s why the Democrats had to spend so much Soros and Zuckerberg and Democrat donor money to rig the election. With this current administration installed we’ll have to depend on the
    power of individual states to try to minimize power disruptions, I can only pray.

    I just want to point out that in some communities Smart meters were installed in your residence whether you wanted them or not, it was a decision made by local city governments in some communities.

    I remember watching the Brave Little Toaster animated movie when I was younger. I enjoyed it but did not think it would become reality. I researched some smart appliances and found almost everything has a smart version. Fridges with cameras inside so you can see inside with your phone while at the store. Ovens that cook your food the way they think it should be cooked, what could go wrong? Smart windows and doors that have motors to open and close with sensors. Self cleaning toilets that monitor water usage. AI washer dryer combos that send a message to your phone when finished. This is ludicrous. The cost of buying and maintaining all of this is more than hiring a maid. It would be a boring existence not doing anything and the stuff will break down and require a continual internet connection. Good thing the cost is out of reach for most and most rich people wouldnt waste their money. It does seem like this is ongoing research and development for something else in the future like an artificial mechanical computerized city that only needs a few technicians to provide maintenance, a few humans to work alongside the robots. The humans will be chipped of course.

    Only the rich can afford things now. The american dream is like a carrot being dangled in front of your face. Important things like houses and cars can only be bought with loans and mortgages with high interest. And the cost of a used car has gone way up. They are leaving people behind. It is frustrating for many who learn lifes lessons like saving money and developing different skills and the goal posts are always moved. The standards change, so someone struggling finally starts saving and now they cant afford what they need, or they get good at their business but now others cant afford them. Anger and resentment are growing.

    You can quasi-hamstring an executive fiat (fascist) autocracy with simply refusing their convenience weapons aimed at freedom’s destruction. Go back to a “flip phone,” limit exposure to known sources of data-mining, go as Amish lifestyle as possible, and you won’t be so sucker punched vulnerable to tech hustling, social eugenic poverty pimps.

    It would seem “climate change” would largely serve such depopulation interests by hitting the aged and infirm hardest, summer or winter. Past ozone action day warnings cautioned respiratory compromised people to stay inside. I haven’t heard one of those for some time now.

    If global warming were public enemy #1 as asserted for decades, why emphasize PV solar at ~15% photon to electricity conversion efficiency when solar thermodynamic based electricity from concentrated solar power (CSP) operates twice as effectively, converting solar photons generating heat into power? That so converted heat energy, is necessarily removed from the environment, following the law of conservation of energy.

    The photons of a light beam have a characteristic energy, called photon energy, which is proportional to the frequency of the light. In the photoemission process, when an electron within some material absorbs the energy of a photon and acquires more energy than its binding energy, it is likely to be ejected. If the photon energy is too low, the electron is unable to escape the material. Since an increase in the intensity of low-frequency light will only increase the number of low-energy photons, this change in intensity will not create any single photon with enough energy to dislodge an electron. Moreover, the energy of the emitted electrons will not depend on the intensity (amplitude) of the incoming light of a given frequency (wavelength), but only on the energy (wavelength) of the individual photons.

    ..Solar panels barely convert any energy solar ultra violet radiation energy. CSP by contrast uses all but the low energy wavelengths -associated with a CSP receiver’s operating temperature and having only such low energy wavelengths in efficiency, as loss. High energy ultra-violet conversion “gains” outweigh infra-red loss, favoring the CSP approach over solar photovoltaic panels. There are additional reasons to go preveniently CSP including EMP/CME resilience and increasing efficiency with increasing ambient temperature (mitigates IR receiver loss).

    It’s just the opposite for solar panels.

    Another major advantage of CSP is it’s broader US industry consortium footprint, meaning job creation and keeping Made in the USA , front and center.
