4/17: IDIOMS ARE FOR IDIOTS

IDIOMS ARE FOR IDIOTS

MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS

I know there have been a few listeners clamoring for my commentary on what is happening with the possible advent of World War. To be honest, I had to take a break from all of it because I have been under the microscope so to speak because of what I have said before, and I am saying long before we were even this close to World War III. I am sure that if you are at all familiar with my history, I had run into a bit of a problem when I aired North Korean numbers station broadcasts during a show I called, “Communumbers.”

I am not going to blather on and on about censorship or state that I have been silenced – I can leave that to others who feel it is a badge of courage to be contacted by an alphabet agency about your content.

I made the mistake of saying that we should not underestimate what may happen with this latter day Cuban missile crisis in East Asia.

My mistake was being right – being right alerted important people who said to be a little more careful about how a phrase things.

You see when war is about to go down, words are very important and at times it is not what is said – it is what isn’t said and much of what is said by our leaders and war hawks are hidden in idiotic idioms.

One of those idioms is pre-emptive strike.

I received a call from a friend of mine who was very concerned about the word pre-emptive strike being used in the media, to describe what we may have to conduct in North Korea.

As a child of the Cold War, she associated it with nuclear strikes, and to be honest, I did too. It was one of these magic words that triggered all sorts of good old fashioned Cold War fear.

There is another thing that eerily happens the minute war idioms are thrown out into the ether – people start to change alchemically. It is like the mad wizard declares war and the apt pupils become adepts and somehow convince themselves that they have willed and executed the declaration of war themselves.

Then with the exception of a few pacifists, they proceed to allow themselves to be programmed and later coerced into believing dangerous and deranged ideas. It always changes the environment and what affects our lives. The country becomes a factory of sorts — a well oiled war machine. Each person who falls for the war declaration feels that they have an obligation to declare that destruction is a requirement for their freedom.

The average citizen throws off his contempt and indifference to government, and identifies himself with its objectives. The military then becomes the arbitrator of the state and there is a dominant and coerced form of patriotism. It is patriotism that is first written in a country song, written on a bumper sticker or emblazoned on a billboard.

Then comes the guilt and the fear that promotes the movement towards nationalism and over the top jingoism. This produces immediately that intense and hopeless confusion between the relations which the individual bears and should bear toward the society of which he is a part of.

The idioms of war remind the people that their real religion is the Religion of State. Their other religions place a distant second and later they are combined where the war and bloodletting is favored by a God in which we put our trust.

The whole country transforms and people start having some psychotic patriotic break.

War presidents tend to be remembered better than presidents who had the misfortune to reign during peacetime, sometimes despite their best efforts. It’s understandable that a president who “led the nation into war” would stand out in the memory more than one who did not, but it’s no less a matter of concern to those who actually hate war and love peace rather than just say it.

The dangerous, ignorant, narcissistic, erratic, blowhard of yesterday becomes a beloved madman, not just any madman – but our madman.

President Richard Nixon long ago developed the “madman theory,” the idea that he could frighten his adversaries into believing he was so volatile he might do something crazy if they failed to meet his demands.

Nixon was concerned to keep his adversaries guessing about his motives and temperament. Nixon never wanted the Soviets to feel confident that they knew what he would do, or that he wouldn’t do something outrageous or irrational.

Nixon allegedly told H.R. Haldeman:

“I want the North Vietnamese to believe I’ve reached the point where I might do anything to stop the war. We’ll just slip the word to them that, for God’s sake, you know Nixon is obsessed about Communism. We can’t restrain him when he’s angry — and he has his hand on the nuclear button — and Ho Chi Minh himself will be in Paris in two days begging for peace.”

And Nixon did more than “just slip the word.” In October 1969, he dramatically raised the Strategic Air Command’s readiness level and made a nuclear strike look imminent, evidently in an attempt to rattle Ho’s Soviet backers. Melvin Laird, Nixon’s secretary of defense, later observed that this was done to make the Russians think “you could never put your finger on what he [Nixon] might do next.”

The madman theory came to me when I heard the story of what happened when President Trump was dining with the president of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping and ordered the launching of 59 missiles on Syria.

President Trump told Fox Business anchor, Maria Bartiromo that they had finished dinner and having dessert. He said it was the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that anyone had ever seen — Trump said that President Xi was enjoying it.

That’s when Trump gave the military orders to execute the launch, he says, and informed his Chinese counterpart of the move.

What was creepy about the whole thing is how excited and giddy Bartiromo was during the interview and how casually Trump told the story and how Trump described the response from the Chinese president — Trump said that President Xi said it was “okay.”

Meanwhile, back on Air Force One, the president spoke with reporters as “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was the in flight movie – irony never seems to let anyone down in the apocalypse.

The American military warned Russia in advance of the pending missile strike using the established deconfliction communication line, according to a Pentagon statement. The strike was designed to minimize potential casualties among Russian and Syrian forces who may have been present at the airfield.

At the same time, the American strikes avoided the ostensible object of their mission – the Sarin itself, to further minimize potential Russian casualties.

The value of this attack will also be debated for some time. Targeting one airfield in Syria in the big picture does not make that much of a difference. Even if the number of Syrian aircraft destroyed were significant, the difference to the conflict appears to be minimal. At this point in the conflict, 59 Tomahawks were nothing more than a political statement, not a military one.

So in order to solidify any and all questions about how crazy things can get – the military launches the Mother of All Bombs.

The bombing actually a triggered some Mandela Effect Déjà vu as many people were posting on social media that this had happened before; that the MOAB bomb had been dropped before.

Not quite.

A decade and a half ago the US Air Force dropped massive 15,000 pound “Daisy Cutter” bombs on the Tora Bora complex in hopes of taking out the stronghold of Al-Qaida terrorists headed by Osama bin Laden.

This may have been yet another “mad man” move mixed with another idiom of “all options are on the table” as The President of the United States has now used another war idiom as North Korea – has been ‘crossing the line” in its continued tests of nuclear weapons.

Another overused idiom is “unintended consequences.” These unintended consequences are simply the Pentagon spending all sorts of money creating war scenarios and carrying them out which lead to destabilization of countries – low intensity conflicts, civil wars and proxy wars.

We all know the “unintended consequences” of proxy wars are bigger wars with super power leaders “ready to push the button” to use another over used war idiom.

As Jon Rappoport says, “Those who push for American empire push for war and destruction and conquest. They may talk about unintended consequences and mistakes, but none of that matters to them.”

In other words, idioms are for idiots. These idioms are alchemical transfiguring words making us all crazy and breed our penchant for blood cement with our leaders.

Just months ago president Trump was called everything from Hitler to Mussolini to our national nightmare.

However, the moment he starts bombing Middle Eastern countries he’s suddenly not so bad after all. At this point if he bombs North Korea he will be our national hero. If anyone still believes in the Russian/Trump collusion story – they belong on the island of misfit conspiracy theorists.

The political glitterati on all the networks are practically gushing over the fact that Trump means business. It is like a new mental illness of submerged paranoia that is having a sexual relationship with a sickening sense of sadism.

The media was incapable of holding back their exhilaration about the Syria strike, and the MOAB dropped on Afghanistan and so they created a highly exaggerated “narrative,” using idioms that make them look absolutely unhinged.

A perfect example of this is how the mainstream media was excited to hear from White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer about the details of the MOAB bomb drop and his first order of business was to give details about the annual Easter egg hunt at the Whitehouse and then how about that bomb thing “spicy.”

This to me shows that the media can put us all into a state of mass psychosis. I have this hypothesis only because – of all of the e-mails and messages I received as of late telling me that the paranormal means nothing to anyone because we are on the brink of World War III.

It is very confusing because when I report the truth about what is happening and it isn’t some hate filled narrative against a perceived enemy – I am then told that I should stick with Bigfoot sightings and UFO reports.

It is laughable, however, it is always an awkward laughter.

I am really worried that the country is suffering from a condition that can only be called, Hallucinatory Reality – where everything that we are projecting into the world is manifesting into symbolic hallucinations.

I worry that I am in the middle of it as – I noticed that as I projected –that between March 15th and April 19th we will see bloodshed and war campaigning. Well it is happening as I said it would and now we are two days away from the window being closed – and it appears that it is going to be left open as North Korea has said that they are going to continue to test their nuclear capabilities despite the warnings that have been given by our American leadership.

Trump has sent a Navy strike group towards the Korean Peninsula, and the US and South Korea are moving ahead with the early deployment of a controversial missile defense system.

Despite the tension, North Korea may carry out a sixth nuclear test soon, observers say. It test-fired a missile on Sunday that exploded within seconds of launch, following a grand military parade on Saturday.

Once again an odd thing happened at the UN when a North Korean diplomat said he hoped journalists had a great Easter holiday weekend and then proceeded to warn of a possible thermonuclear war.

North Korea’s UN Deputy representative, Kim In Ryong, unleashed at a hastily called UN press conference a torrent of threats, war scenarios and rhetoric aimed at the United States.

The Trump Administration’s announced end of a “strategic patience” policy with Pyongyang has upped the ante in terms of warnings and bellicose rhetoric. The press event was held hours after US Vice President Mike Pence visited the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea. Pence warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the United States “or the strength of our military forces.”

In New York, North Korea returned verbal fire. North Korea’s UN ambassador condemned the US naval buildup in the waters off the Korean Peninsula, plus the US missile attacks on Syria.

The deputy ambassador, reading from a statement, told reporters, “The US is disturbing the global peace and stability and insisting on the gangster-like logic that its invasion of a sovereign state is ‘decisive, and just, and proportionate’ and contributes to ‘defending’ the international order in its bid to apply it to the Korean Peninsula as well.”

Meanwhile, President Trump seemed unfazed at the Easter egg hunt when confronted by reporters about North Korea – all he said was that they need to behave.

Afterwards, a local reporter was all giddy in reporting that auricular amputation of chocolate bunnies are on the rise—meaning that a majority of us eat the ears and head of a chocolate bunny at Easter.

It is business as usual in the apocalyptic equinox.
