Clay Clark never stops working and never stops worrying about the state of the world and the proliferation of the Great Reset, the economic policy initiative being pushed by the World Economic Forum (WEF).
The successful Oklahoma-based entrepreneur, podcaster and founder, organizer, emcee and host of the ReAwaken America Tour has devoted his life over the last few years to trying to wake people up to the dangers of COVID-19 government overreach and globalism through the plans in the Great Reset by WEF founder Klaus Schwab and his disciple, historian Yuval Noah Harari. Clark came to prominence when he sued the city of Tulsa in August of 2020 to end the city’s mask mandate and to fight against business and church closures.
It was during a COVID protest event that Clark first met Gen. Michael Flynn, the former National Security Advisor, and that relationship led to the ReAwaken America Tour that has gone across the country at more than a dozen stops since early 2021. The tour has featured everyone from Robert Kennedy Jr. and Alex Jones to former Trump officials Peter Navarro and Kash Patel.
Clark brings the ReAwaken America Tour under the title “The Great Reawakening vs. The Great Reset” to the Spooky Nook Sports venue in Manheim on Oct. 21 and 22. Some of the speakers include Flynn, Eric Trump, former Trump advisor Roger Stone and businessman Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame.
The Lancaster Patriot spoke with Clark in a phone interview from his home in Oklahoma as he prepared to come to Lancaster County for the first time.
The Lancaster Patriot: What made you decide to bring the tour to Lancaster County?
Clay Clark: I believe that General Flynn looks at the map of the United States and asks himself how he can make the biggest impact. So, I saw him do an unpaid speaking event in Minnesota, and then the next week he’s out there helping hurricane victims in Florida. I think his mindset is how can he make a massive impact. That’s what I see.
TLP: Why do you think Pennsylvania is so important? Is it because of the election coming up with the governor and Senate races and the implication of those for the country?
CC: I don’t want to speak for [Flynn], but I can say that we all on the tour recognize the importance of getting a conservative governor in the great state of Pennsylvania. And the people of Pennsylvania really came out in droves during the presidential election to demonstrate their support for President Trump. I believe that Pennsylvania is a key state to save our republic.
TLP: What is it like for you putting this type of tour together, going around the country, and bringing together so many different voices?
CC: Well, if I was to describe what it’s like, I would say it’s extremely non profitable, all-consuming, financial resource sucking, yet oddly satisfying patriotic bonanza. We’re all doing it because we want to save the nation. We’re not doing it because we’re trying to run around finding a different way to make compensation. But we also want to make it festive for people that are there. That’s why I use the word bonanza. We want to make it a desirable event to come to, because freedom is great. And we want to celebrate those God-given freedoms we’ve enjoyed. But at the same time, the Great Reset is a very real situation. We are at a very real threat to our freedoms.
TLP: Did you ever think that you would be a part of this type of movement to bring together these voices?
CC: No, no, no, 100-percent, no. I won an award in 2002 – I was the Tulsa Metro Chamber of Commerce, Entrepreneur of the Year. And I didn’t know that involved meeting your elected officials, so the chamber calls me and said, “You’re the winner of this award!” I’m going, “Great, great, I think. It’s great, right? Pretty good. Okay.” Because I’m running my business, and I don’t do politics. You go and meet the mayor and the chamber of commerce, and you meet all these folks, and you start to recognize that the elected officials by and large are not in favor of small business. In fact, they make it difficult to run a business through their regulation and legislation and taxation. The city of Tulsa was trying to do this thing called “Vision 2020.” They’re trying to make Tulsa a desirable place to live. Well, to me, what makes Tulsa desirable to live is there’s low taxes and low government involvement. And they want to bring in more government involvement and more taxes. Again, I’m 20 years old, and I’m getting this award. I remember thinking, “These elected officials are definitely the kind of people I never want to talk to.”
TLP: What happened next?
CC: Well, in 2007, I won another award from the Small Business Administration. I’ll just tell you how this works. Usually, you get you get a call from your party’s organization. So, the theory is you join the chamber or you join the Small Business Administration, and it’s a good networking opportunity. If you have tremendous growth over a sustained period of time, they’re wanting to celebrate the success of small business owners. And I would say it’s almost in a way where they want to sort of take credit for it a little bit, even though I had never done a small business loan. So, I get a call and they say, “You’ve been nominated, your growth is tremendous. Would you like to submit your financials to see if you can be selected as the winner for fastest growth?” And I’m thinking, “Yeah, that sounds great, I think. I suppose, maybe. Okay, here we go again.” At this point it’s five years later, and I win this award. I’m, Oklahoma’s Small Business Administration Entrepreneur of the Year. Now I’m meeting senators and governors and congressmen, and I remember going to D.C. to get an award. And I remember thinking, “These people are the worst.” I’m not just talking Republicans or Democrats – all of them. They took me to a restaurant called The Palm, and they racked up some insane bill taking me out to dinner for some award I won. And I remember asking the person who took me, “Who pays for all this?” They go, “It’s the taxpayers. Don’t worry about it. We’ve got a public-private partnership.” They don’t understand I am as close to Libertarian as can be.
TLP: What caused you to focus on some of the issues brought up in the Reawaken America tour like COVID-19 and the Great Reset.
CC: When I saw us get to a place in the country where the Great Reset was being imposed upon us and nobody really knew what was happening, I thought to myself, “I need to share the truth about the Great Reset. I need to share the truth that the system and method for testing for COVID-19 was patented in 2015.” And all of that is cited, by the way. I mean, come on. And then you look up the CARES Act and you just do some basic research. I’m not talking about being a research genius or having some secret clearance to have the information they don’t want you to know about. All I know is I’m just looking it up and I’m going, “HR 748 – the CARES Act, which is the COVID-19 relief package – was written one year and one month before COVID-19.” So I thought I’m going to share that with everybody I know. The models are false. The models showing the number of Americans dying from COVID are false. Polymerase chain reaction tests are false. The inventor of the test said they’re being falsely calibrated to inflate the cases. The inventor of the test, Kary Mullis, said Fauci’s a liar. The system and method for testing for COVID-19 was patented in 2015. Maderna was working on a vaccine for COVID-19 before COVID-19 was a thing, and HR 748, the CARES Act, was designed to fund COVID-19 relief. You’ve got Ralph Baric running around talking about how to benefit from a pandemic before the pandemic. You’ve got Fauci saying there will definitely be a pandemic before there’s a pandemic. There’s just all sorts of evidence, so I thought I would share with people.
TLP: Do you think people are waking up to what’s happening around them?
CC: I thought there would be elected officials who would stand up for America, and they wouldn’t stand up. So, I sued the mayor of Tulsa to keep the city open. I turned my building into a church while all the churches were closed. I couldn’t believe how many churches closed. I flew in a pastor every Thursday to pastor the church and started hosting town hall events every week. They kept growing and growing and growing, and eventually I met General Flynn at one of them. I felt like God was calling. I didn’t hear a burning bush say, “Do an event with General Flynn.” But it was like this calling where I just felt like we really needed to do this together. And so, I called him, and I said, “Hey, I feel like God wants us to do an event where we share the truth about medical fraud, election fraud, religious fraud, monetary fraud and get people back to God.” And he said, “Yes, I know. But it has to happen through the church.” And he said it promptly. So, I announced the tickets were for sale. I gave out my cell phone number on One America News and Newsmax to promote it. We had 50,000 people request tickets via text or email, and we had 5,500 people in attendance. I didn’t have a sales team. Nobody who worked for me sold tickets. I went through about a 40% staff turnover because people on our staff who were previously nonpolitical were forced to pick a side because their boss is doing this event. And I thought we were done after the first one, but General Flynn called me and asked if we could do one more. And now here we are doing our 16th event in Pennsylvania.
TLP: Did you have an inkling that there would be this kind of demand for this kind of event?
CC: No. I just wanted to go down swinging. I didn’t want to lose our freedoms without fighting back. I do about 40 interviews every week. I did 35 interviews this week. If you go to Rumble.com right now and you search for “the Great Reset,” I’m pretty positive just about every result is me. If you type “Klaus Schwab” into Rumble I believe that maybe a third of the search results are me. And then you’ve got “Noah Harari.” Most of the search results are me. I just won’t stop.
TLP: What keeps you motivated to do 35 to 40 interviews a week on top of everything else that you have to do with your businesses and life?
CC: You know how some people love frisbee golf or lawn darts or cornhole? Really, you committed your backyard to cornhole because you love it that much? There’s that guy who turned his backyard into a golf green, and you go, “You love golf that much?” There’s kind of a flow state where you lose track of space and time. My flow state is working and working alone. To me, working alone is easier than being around a lot of people or relaxing. I don’t go on vacations, but every once awhile, my family will trick me into a vacation. When I go to the beach, I just look at the water and I just wait to go back to work. If you read Exodus or Genesis, it talks about you work six days and rest on the seventh. I have like a psychological nervous tic. I try to take off every Sunday for the Sabbath, and it is tough. I get up at 3 a.m. on Sunday, and I will do all my research before we go to church. And then the whole day I’m like, “Well, I can’t work. I’m going to go do all the grocery shopping with my wife, and then I’m going to go clean the garage. And then I’m going to go read the entire Book of Leviticus. And then I’m going to read Matthew, and then I’m going to make shrimp. I’m just go, go, go guy. That’s just what I do. Downtime is not my thing.
TLP: If you had the opportunity to talk to Klaus Schwab, what would you say to him?
CC: I would ask him why he is obsessed with implementing the transhumanism gene editing agenda on the world. That’s where I would start. Then I would ask him who he prays to. Then I would ask him, “What is the goal of the Great Reset if it is allowed to be implemented completely without any restrictions?”
TLP: How do you think he would answer the questions?
CC: I know because I’ve read the patents and I’ve seen what they’re doing, but they want to introduce the Great Reset, which has several legs to it. One is they want to make everybody trackable so they know where you are at all times. You can’t buy or sell without trackable technology in your body. And that isn’t speculation. These things are stated openly by Yuval Noah Harari, the top adviser for Klaus Schwab. And he states these things out loud. He’s praised by Obama, Zuckerberg and Gates. There’s countless videos of Yuval Noah Harari where he says dictatorships will be more efficient than democracies. He says we may see an emergence of a new, massive class of useless people. He says we’re one of the last generations of Homo sapiens. He says we face major problems that can’t be solved without global cooperation.
TLP: What would you hope people take away from coming to the Reawaken America tour?
CC: I hope they understand the truth about election fraud, medical fraud, religious fraud. But the end of the day, I hope they understand the Great Reset versus the Great Reawakening. Or, it’s Satan versus God, and you have to pick a side.
