Brannon Howse: Good evening, and welcome to the broadcast. Glad you are with us. Mike is still on business, so we're holding down the fort. We'll see what happens as we get into Friday tomorrow. I did talk to him a couple of times today. Things are going well, but he is going to a lot of cities and a lot of states this afternoon. He was touching down in several different states before his final stop tonight. So, he's busy, but he's doing good. I guess there was a great premiere of 2000 mules last night at Mar-a-Lago. We'll get more of an update from him next time he joins us, which we hope will be soon. Before we go to a special broadcast, we have for you tonight at this hour. I want to alert you to a very special broadcast we will have in the next hour. The next hour, my TV show Brannon House Live starts at 7:30 Central. I'm going to invite all of you to text, tweet, email, Facebook, and get on Getter. I'm going to bring you a very special program tonight. It's something I covered for a little bit on my radio show tonight, or today from 1 to 2 central, and the phone lines lit up. People said, please, we want more of this, and we got emails after the broadcast saying, "Please, we want more of this."

Brannon Howse: What is it they're asking for? More about the fight against communism, the history of communism, and those who sacrificed so much to fight communism overseas, over there so we wouldn't have to fight it here. You're going to hear tonight the personal stories of some people like Jeremiah Denton. You'll hear from Red McDaniel. You're going to hear some stories tonight that every American, well, if they don't know them, they should, and certainly every young person. In fact, today, as I got off the air with my radio show from 1 to 2, we do carry the TV show here at Lindell TV. That was the common theme in the emails. This should be required viewing by every young person in America. Well, I'm going to bring you more tonight than I was able to cover in my timeslot today. So, I would like you to invite everyone to join us that you possibly can for this broadcast right here, right now, 6:00 Central, the Lindell Report. But let them know after the World View Report tonight, we'll have a very special broadcast, and it's going to be quite moving but also very challenging. Again, something that young people need to see. Again, I can't stress enough the need to educate our young people on the issue of patriotism. Yuri Bezmenov was asked, a former KGB officer who came to America. When he came to America and started to turn against communism and warn about communism, he was asked in a 1984 interview with my friend G. Edward Griffin, what is the antidote? What is it that we can do to stop communism?

Brannon Howse: He said, "Teach Patriotism." So, tonight, we're going to learn about some of the guys who indeed were willing to defend our nation and should be an inspiration to us to be patriotic. In the meantime, we want to go right now. We're going to have a special broadcast. I produced a documentary a couple of years ago called Brainwashed America. It's 2 hours, maybe some of you have seen it, but the information is compelling. Even I, the one who produced it, have to often see it again to remember all the great details about how brainwashing occurs. Because right now, we are involved in an information war, a psychological operation. It's 2 hours, and we'll endeavor to get through the first hour tonight, at least most of it. We'll see what happens tomorrow night. You can watch it for free at BrainWashedTheMovie.com, but I want to bring you this very special hour tonight in The Lindell Report. Brainwashed America, the first hour of part one. Watch this.

Worldview Weekend Hour: Tonight, on the Worldview Weekend Hour, Brainwashed America: the systematic steps for how the American people have been brainwashed over many decades to assist and go along with the culturally Marxist revolution almost complete in the United States of America. The Worldview Weekend Hour begins right now.

WVW-TV: WVW-TV presents the World View Weekend Hour with Brannon Howse, whether the topic is law, science, government, economics, history, family, social issues, education, or theology. Brannon brings the issues of today into clear focus through the lens of a biblical worldview. And now, here is your host, Brannon Howse.

Brannon Howse: Good evening, and welcome to the Worldview Weekend Hour. Tonight, we start a brand-new series on Brainwashed America. The subtitle is: The Systematic Process and Historical Documented Facts of How the Vast Majority of Americans Have Been Brainwashed Over Many Decades to Embrace and Assist in the Cultural Marxist Revolution that is Almost Complete Within the United States of America. Well, this is a very important series because many people don't know that there has been an information operation or a brainwashing operation, information war, psychological warfare, all these various different titles for the same thing. They don't realize this has been going on, and one of the reasons brainwashing is so successful on people and a nation is because they don't know what's going on. You see, that's the nature of deception. People don't often know they're being deceived, and those who perpetrate brainwashing don't want to name it. They don't want to identify its tactics, and they don't want people to know about it because if they do, they can resist. Over the last couple of years and, more recently, the last few months, I have been studying this topic of brainwashing. What first alerted me to the importance of this topic was a report put out in 1956, and actually, it was a speech given in 1956 by William E. Mayer, who's on the screen here. William E. Mayer wrote a book called Beyond the Call, and he was tapped to study what happened to our POWs during the Korean War.

Brannon Howse: During the Korean War, we had our POWs in record numbers, giving up, pulling the sheets over their head, and dying. In addition to that, many of them were not resisting the communist propaganda that was being fed to them. And when they came home, those that survived, one of the key things they said was if we had only known. If we had only known what was going on. If we had only been prepared for what was occurring, we could have resisted it, but they didn't know. Dr. William E. Mayer and a group of other experts studied the sad situation of our POWs in the Korean War. This is what led to the Code of Conduct that our United States military began to teach American soldiers. The Code of Conduct: what would be expected of them should they be taken prisoner? Should they become a prisoner of war, what were they to do? How were they to resist? Were they indeed supposed to be actively engaged in trying to escape? These very important tactics were taught to them because of what happened to the POWs during the Korean War. William E. Mayer gave a speech, as I said, in November. In fact, it was November 27th, 1956, and I have it here in front of me. I've played clips of it on the radio. What I did was I took this speech, and I began to go through it.

Brannon Howse: I began to mark it up, make notes in the margins of this speech, and I began to break down what he was saying. Then to take my journal with blank pages, as I am prone to do, to begin to make a list of what was it he was saying. In other words, I just outlined what he was saying. Maybe the outline isn't his exact words, but it's the ideas that he was presenting. Then I began to break it down into an outline, so I might understand the systematic steps that he was talking about because he didn't lay out any systematic steps. He didn't say one, two, three, four, five and lay it out. He just wrote about what was happening. I then wanted a list so that I could easily understand it and explain it to others. I compiled what you're going to see tonight. But he's not the only one. William E. Mayer was just one of at least two people I have been reading who have studied this extensively. The other individual is a man by the name of Edward Hunter. Edward Hunter was a journalist, and he testified before the Committee on un-American Activities in 1958. It is there that he was said to have served two years during World War II as a quote, "Propaganda Specialist," end quote, for the Office of Strategic Services, which was the forerunner to the Central Intelligence Agency.

Brannon Howse: In March of 58, as he testified before the US House of Representatives House Committee on un-American Activities, he described what happened, particularly to the Chinese people, during the Communist Revolution of 1949. So, please understand we're talking about two different reports by two different men. The one by William E. Mayer, his speech in 1956, and his book called Beyond the Call was to study the POW of the Korean War. Edward Hunter gave a speech and did a lot of studying and writing in regards to what happened to the Chinese people when the Communists took over with their revolution in China in 1949. Both of these men studied two different groups of people. Both of them studied the tactics of the communist and how they brainwashed a people. As we go through this study, we will use both of these men, their research as examples of how I believe the people of China and the communist revolution of China in 1949 and the brainwashing of our American POWs during the Korean War. I believe it has become the basis upon which an information operation has been carried out in America. An information operation is another name for brainwashing. It's also known as misinformation. Now, an information operation can, at times, be done for good reasons if our government goes in and takes over a nation that has not lived under liberty and freedom. They will try to send forth the information to the people through flyers, pamphlets, and local people recognized people in their culture to explain what we're here to do. To liberate them and give them freedom and liberty, they need to organize and embrace a new kind of nation that offers up a new opportunity for freedom.

Brannon Howse: So, they go about what they would call in the military and information operation but use it for a good reason. But more than not, information operations are associated with brainwashing techniques. It's also, as I said, called a propaganda war, psychological ops, and more. Why is this so important? Because, again, if people don't know they're being deceived, how can they fight the deception? If they don't name the program, how can they oppose it? Again, that's what our POWs said when they came home. If we had only known, if someone only taught us what it is they would do to us or try to do to us, we could have resisted. Well, what is the definition of brainwashing? Merriam-webster Dictionary has this definition of brainwashing - A forcible indoctrination to induce someone to give up basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes, and accept contrasting, regimented ideas. Also, persuasion by propaganda or salesmanship. Notice it says that brainwashing includes the attempt to change someone's beliefs their attitudes, and it can be done by the persuasion of propaganda.

Brannon Howse: Now, some might say, well, isn't that what you're about, Brannon? Aren't you trying to change people's attitudes, beliefs, or feelings? Indeed we are, but we don't use propaganda. We don't use deception. We don't seek to manipulate people, to deceive people. That's a big difference. We desire for people to understand the truth. To be set free from the lies of the culture of the world. To be set free from the brainwashing. So, there's a big difference between changing someone's attitudes, values, feelings, and beliefs with a good purpose and using the truth, not being manipulative. One that indeed uses lies, manipulation, and other tactics to change someone's attitudes, values, feelings, and beliefs in a way that is harmful to them and society. So, this is the definition of brainwashing, according to the Webster Dictionary. Now, here is another definition of brainwashing. This is from the psychological dictionary: A method that manipulates and modifies a person's emotions, attitudes and beliefs. It utilizes intensely persuasive, even coercive, tactics in order to enforce these changes. Again, we don't set out to be manipulative or to manipulate someone's emotions or attitudes or force anything on them. Now, where did the term brainwashing come from? Well, the term 'brainwashing' has largely been connected, as I said earlier, to the 1949 communist revolution in China. Now, there are some reports that the term brainwashing was used prior to this, but it was after the 1949 revolution by the communists in China the word really picked up steam.

Brannon Howse: Here is the book by Edward Hunter, published in 1958, called Brainwashed. As I said earlier, Hunter served for two years as a "propaganda specialist" for the Office of Strategic Services during World War II. He goes on to write in that book Brainwashed: The new word 'hraimuash,' which is again a Chinese word. The word 'hraimuashing' washing entered our minds and dictionaries in a phenomenally short time. This sinister political expression had never been seen in print anywhere until a few years ago. The word came out of the sufferings of the Chinese people. Put under a terrifying combination of subtle and crude, mental and physical pressures and tortures, they detected a pattern and called it brainwashing. The Reds wanted people to believe that it could be amply described or aptly described by some familiar expression, such as education, public relations, persuasion, or some misleading term, like mind reform or reeducation. None of these could define it because it was much, much more than any one of them alone. The Chinese knew they hadn't just been educated or persuaded; something much direr than that had been perpetrated on them, similar in many peculiar ways to medical treatment. What they had undergone was more like witchcraft, with its incantations, trances, poisons, and potions with a strange flair of science about it all, like a devil dancer in a tuxedo, carrying his magic brew in a test tube. The Communist hierarchy preferred people to believe that there was no such thing as brainwashing.

Brannon Howse: So long as they could keep it concealed without a name, opposition to it could be kept scattered and ineffective. The German-born Sinologue, Max Perleberg, who is fluent in both modern and classical Chinese, told me that the term might well have been derived from the Buddhist expression "heart-washing," which goes to the time of Mencius, a middle-aged man, perhaps weary of worldly care, living in a bare pavilion in some placid corner of his garden, leaving his offspring to attend to his business. Well, if you do a little research, Mencius is said to be a Chinese philosopher who is often described as the second sage after only Confucius himself. Well, isn't that interesting that the Chinese thought the word brainwashing was derived from the Buddhist expression "heart-washing?" Isn't it also interesting that the Chinese people equated brainwashing with witchcraft? In reality, what Mr. Edward Hunter is describing is, in many ways, a spiritual event. Brainwashing, in many ways, gets to the issue of spirituality. It is doing something, I believe, at the spiritual level, with the mind, the heart, and the soul. If you were to do an autopsy and someone were to ask you, show me the brain. Well, they could show you the brain. But if someone were to ask you, show me the mind, they couldn't show you the mind.

Brannon Howse: If someone were to say, show me the soul. You can't see the soul. Show me the spirit. You can't show them the spirit. Again, I could do an autopsy and show you a brain or take you into an autopsy and show you a brain. But I can't show you the mind. The mind is connected to the spiritual. The mind is connected to the heart and the soul—that which will live forever. And brainwashing goes to the very issue of the heart or the mind. So, isn't it interesting that the Chinese believe the term brainwashing was connected to a Buddhist word and was connected to the word "heart-washing?" They also believed it was similar to the spiritual practice of witchcraft. Now, why is this important? Well, the Bible mentions the heart 826 times. "Heart" refers to the core of a person's being. In fact, in the Bible, the words "heart" and "mind" are often interchangeable. So, when we talk about brainwashing, we're talking about the "heart," the "mind," something at the spiritual level. Indeed, I think it is something that is coming from the spiritual realm. In fact, Proverbs 4:23 declares that out of the heart "springs the issues of life." In other words, from the heart precede our good and bad thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Now, if you want to grab your Bible and go with me to Genesis 3. Let me set up for you why I believe brainwashing, at its core, is a spiritual issue that does indeed go after the heart and the mind.

Brannon Howse: Let me also show you in Genesis 3 what I believe is the first information operation. The first attempt at brainwashing or mind washing, or heart washing. Genesis 3, here's what we read. Now, the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And He said to the woman, "Indeed, has Lord God said... Wait a minute, let's just stop right there. One of the key things that a facilitator carrying out the goal of brainwashing must first do is get an individual to doubt their own convictions. One of the first things we see going on, whether it is in the Communist Revolution of 1949 or the communist brainwashing techniques used on our POWs during the Korean War, is they want people to doubt. To question their convictions, question their worldview, their values, and thus change their conduct. We know that your worldview is the foundation of your values, and your values are the foundation of your conduct. Thus, if they can get you to change your worldview, you'll change your values. You change your values. You're changing your conduct. So, the very premise of brainwashing is getting people to doubt their own convictions. To doubt what they believe. To doubt the foundation of their worldview, and here in Genesis 3, Satan, in the form of a serpent, says to Eve, "Did God really say." Satan is trying to convince Eve to sin by not trusting God. To sin by disobeying God.

Brannon Howse: But she first must be convinced that God is not what he says he is. Eve must be convinced that it is acceptable to question her core convictions, values, and worldview. Yes, Eve is being asked to question God. Did God really say? You see, brainwashing requires people to question their theology. The word "Theos" or "God" is where we find the word "Theology," Theos, God, Theology. Theology is again coming from this idea of "Theo," "God." It is the study of God, and if you can get someone to change their view of God, to there is no God or man is God, you have changed their theology. Once you get them to deny there is no God, as Friedrich Nietzsche said, God, is dead. Or you get them to believe, as the New Age teaches, man is his own God. You now have gotten them to question, did God really say? Now the brainwashing operation can get underway? In other words, people must be involved not only in questioning absolute truth, questioning God, and questioning their theology. They also must be involved in what is called self-doubt. The facilitator of a brainwashing operation wants the subject to question their own beliefs. Well, maybe I have been wrong. Maybe I have been deceived. Maybe I have been manipulated. Maybe I have been used. Maybe I have been mistreated. Maybe I'm not being treated fairly. Maybe I have not been treated justly, and they're called to question even their own convictions. Self-doubt, self-criticism, maybe I wasn't being smart. Maybe I haven't been aware of what's been going on. Self-criticism and self-doubt, but ultimately, the goal is to question their convictions and worldview.

Brannon Howse: So, this is what Satan is doing to Eve, and he says, "Indeed, has God said." Has God said, "You should not eat from any tree in the garden?" The woman said to the serpent, "From the fruit of the tree, which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, "You shall not eat from it, or touch it, or you will die." The servant said to the woman, "You surely will not die. For God knows that in the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good from evil." Let's break that verse down real quick. You surely will not die. What is that? That's the idea of, well, for the New Age Movement, it would be reincarnation. You won't die. Your soul will just be repeatedly passed from one body to another until your good deeds outweigh your bad deeds. Your good karma outweighs your bad karma. You won't die. There won't be any spiritual death. There are no spiritual consequences to what I'm offering. No, you surely will not die spiritually or physically, and if you do die physically. Don't worry about it because you don't die spiritually. You can just be reprocessed through reincarnation until your good karma outweighs your bad karma as you continue up the process of reincarnation to something greater. You won't die. There'll be no spiritual death.

Brannon Howse: And then Satan says to her, for God knows that in that day you eat up from it, your eyes will be open. What is this? This is the idea of the belief that you will have hidden knowledge, and your eyes will be open. You'll have hidden knowledge, esoteric wisdom, and hidden knowledge. Today, many seek hidden knowledge through drugs, through an altered state of consciousness, through transcendental meditation, which is a new name for an old practice known as yoga. In a minute, we're going to see that, indeed, the Maharishi and Transcendental Meditation that came to America through the Maharishi has been a great way to brainwash the American people. In fact, the KGB was quite excited that the Maharishi came to America to bring yoga under the new name of Transcendental meditation. They believe the KGB, that this idea that your eyes could be opened and you could have hidden knowledge would go a long way toward brainwashing the American people. Now, while the KGB didn't have anything really to do with it, according to the former KGB officer, they were quite happy to see it come to America because they thought it would play very nicely into the brainwashing of the American people.

Brannon Howse: We'll look at that in just a minute. But isn't that what yoga is all about today as well? Your eyes will be open. You'll have some hidden knowledge about a spiritual experience as the natural world dissolves and you enter the spiritual world. You have new truth or reality created for you or made available to you. Gnosticism is a definition that would be very lengthy, but in a basic term, it's the idea of pursuing hidden knowledge. Gnosticism, higher knowledge or hidden knowledge. Again, the thought is that it can be done through drugs or hypnosis. Many of the radicals in the 1960s wanted to have an altered state of consciousness. Remember the musical Hair? This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius or the Age of New Beginnings. It's thought to be a new age where men will be more enlightened and understand who they are, their Godhood, and their deity. It'll be a new age where man understands his deity. But to do that, they had to tap into their unconscious mind and have an altered state of consciousness to discover their Godhood or deity. And drugs were a great way to have that altered state of consciousness, they said. But some didn't want to do drugs. Then here comes the Maharishi, offering yoga under a new name, Transcendental Meditation. This is right out of Genesis 3.

Brannon Howse: Then after Satan says, "You will not die," and after he says, "Your eyes will be open," he says, "You will be like, God." You will be your own God, humanism. Humanism, you'll be your own God. Now, in our past studies, we know that there are two forms of humanism. There's Secular Humanism that says, "There is no God," there is no spiritual world, there's only the natural world, and in this life, you are your own God, your God. You can do whatever you want. There's no right and wrong. You are in charge, but when you die, that's it. It's over. So, Secular Humanism says man is God while he lives in this natural world. But when he dies, that's it. It's over. But while he is alive, he is the captain of his own future, destiny, and the arbiter of what is right and wrong. He is God. Man is God, Secular humanism. Cosmic humanism or New Age declares, unlike Secular Humanism, Cosmic Humanism declares, there is a spiritual world. In fact, it declares there is a spiritual world, and there is a natural world. They believe that the natural world is really an illusion. That's why many New Agers want to be involved in drugs or Transcendental Meditation or yoga and make the natural world dissolve and enter into the spiritual realm where they can understand the Godhood of their deity. Get their chakras in line and be more attuned with the cosmos, where they find peace and bliss and can come together with other New Agers in harmonic convergence. The power of the mind to create a heaven on earth, if you will.

Brannon Howse: So, both groups Secretary Humanist as well as Cosmic Humanist or New Agers, declare that man is God. Secular humanists say a man is God in the natural world till he dies, and that's it. Cosmic humanists believe man is God, and his spirit will live forever. Where his spirit resides is dependent upon good karma, bad karma, good deeds, bad deeds, and the hierarchy of the latter. But this is what Satan is saying to Eve, "You will be like God." Then he says, "You will no good from evil. You decide what is right and wrong there. There is no such thing as absolute truth. There's no such thing as absolute truth, moral relativism, situational ethics." Today we would call it post-modernism. Truth and reality are created by man, not by God; that's post-modernism. Right here in Genesis 3, I believe we're seeing the first information operation, the first brainwashing operation. And it began with Satan declaring to Eve, "Did God really say. Can you really trust God? Can you believe in his word? Does he keep his word? Can you believe in his promises? Maybe you've been lied to? Maybe you've been deceived? Maybe there's something better? Doubt what you believe."

Brannon Howse: Self-doubt and self-criticism are a part of it. But at the very essence is questioning your foundational worldview and convictions. Indeed, that's what happened to the POWs in the Korean War. There began to be this self-doubt and self-criticism. Well, maybe I have been deceived by the folks back at home. Maybe the folks back home have just used me as a dupe to send me over here to fight for this oppressive capitalist system. Maybe I have been deceived all along. Maybe nobody really cares back at home. Maybe they've gone on with their lives and aren't even thinking of me anymore. Maybe my worldview based on God, country, and patriotism has been a form of manipulation. These things were placed into the minds of the POW of the Korean War as part of an operation to get them to doubt their core beliefs or convictions. But what the studies by people like William E. Mayer found out is that, unfortunately, many of our American POWs of the 1950s Korean War. Well, they didn't really know what they believed. In other words, they didn't have too many convictions. As we have seen in past studies, a lot of this started to occur in our schools in the 1940s when America's textbooks began to come under great manipulation by globalists, collectivists, and by wealthy foundations who were busy using their money to get textbooks of America rewritten, to not teach individuality. To not teach the responsibility of the individual. To not teach about our constitutional republic. To not teach absolute truth, but instead to teach collectivism. To teach the idea of progressive ideas, socialism, or collective salvation.

Brannon Howse: The group consensus was in the 1940s. This involved even a congressional study and research known as the Reece Committee. This committee, in the 1940s, found out that these liberal, globalist, progressive socialist foundations were starting to influence what was going on, what was being written in the curriculum of our schools in America in the 1940s, which thus produced the men of the 1950s who really didn't know what they should know about America, our constitutional republic, our form of government, our economy, and how it works. So, they could indeed have deep convictions about our way of life. The Chinese found out very quickly they don't know much. They're easily manipulated. We can get them to doubt their American way of life. We can get them to doubt their American values and ideals and to question and doubt their own government. You see that self-doubt, self-criticism again, and getting people to reject their core convictions is key in the beginning process of an information operation or brainwashing. Here is the statement of Ed Hunter, a March 13th, 1958, before the United States Congressional Committee on un-American Activities. He said quote, "No man has ever been brainwashed whose mind has not first been put into a fog." Well, isn't that interesting? Aren’t that what drugs largely do to the brain? A fog. In reality, isn't that what much of the spiritual practices of yoga or Transcendental Meditation do to people putting their minds in a fog. Not bringing clarity of thought and not really bringing an emphasis on logic or context or reason, but really having them involved in a fog. So, this is what he said, "No man has ever been brainwashed whose mind has not first been put into a fog. The patient first has to be deprived of his bearings to be shaken loose from whatever belief and convictions he formerly held. Until he loses faith in them entirely," end quote, notice that line again, shake and loose from whatever belief and convictions he formerly held. Again, one of the very first steps of brainwashing is to get them to question their worldview, to question and doubt their own convictions.

Brannon Howse: Here is a picture of Yuri Bezmenov. If you can, go on YouTube and listen to many hours of his teaching. I would highly recommend that you do that. He's a former KGB officer that defected, and he sat in interviews with Edward Griffin. You'll find one of those interviews from 1984 on YouTube, as I said, that you can watch, and there are many of him where he's speaking. As a former KGB officer, he is describing brainwashing, among other things. He declares that there are four major steps to brainwashing. Demoralization, destabilization, chaos, and the new norm. Demoralization involves exactly what we've been saying, "Getting people to reject absolute truth." To reject the foundational worldview of their nation. To reject a Judeo-Christian ethic and worldview. In the case of America, America has been founded on a Judeo-Christian ethic. Deriving largely from the Old Testament, in part, thus the Judeo-Christian ethic. And as Yuri has said, "The goal is to demoralize, and take away morality, and absolute truth." When you do that, that creates chaos, so you demoralize and destabilize. You demoralize, and that creates a destabilization. The destabilization that comes because of the lack of morality, the increase in crime, the breakdown of the family, the increase in divorce, children born out of wedlock, and the welfare state. All of this is due to the demoralization period. So, you have demoralization, destabilization eventually that creates chaos. My friends, I believe right now, here in February of 2019, we are in the chaos stage. We're seeing things happen in America that many of us never believed we would see. We're seeing things such as sex-change operations for children as young as five years of age. That's already been tried in a hospital on the East Coast. Sex change operations for children as young as five. Here we are today where we have not the male gender and female gender, but multiple genders and fluidity and so many genders it's impossible to keep up with it anymore.

Brannon Howse: We're also to the point now where these ideas that have been shocking to us as American people have made their way into, well, evangelicalism, to churches. So, the chaos has touched all the areas of media, education, and religion. Indeed, as we'll see tonight, these are three of the most powerful centers that must be penetrated for brainwashing to be successful; education, media, and religion. Yuri Bezmenov, the former KGB officer, said, "You demoralize, destabilize, and that creates chaos." After enough chaos, the people will embrace socialism. They'll embrace the revolution within their country. They will cry out for the government to stop the chaos from bringing some stability, some peace, and some security. Ben Franklin, I believe it was, is the one who said that the people that give up their liberty for a little bit of security are worthy of neither and lose both. So, we now see that Yuri Bezmenov from the 1980s, 1984 is coming true. He said, quote, "The KGB was even curious about this gentleman, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a great spiritual leader or maybe a great charlatan and crook, depending on from which side you're looking at him." The Beatles were trained at his ashram in Haridwar in India on how to meditate. Mia Farrow and other useful idiots from Hollywood visited his school. They returned to the United States, absolutely zonked out of their minds with marijuana, hashish, and crazy ideas of meditation. To meditate, in other words," he said, "To isolate oneself from the current social and political issues of your own country, get into your own bubble, and forget about the troubles of the world. Obviously, the KGB was very fascinated with such a beautiful school, such a brainwashing center for stupid Americans." He said, "I was dispatched by the KGB to check out or check into what kind of VIP. Americans attend this school. You see a person who is too much involved in introspective meditation.

Brannon Howse: You see, if you carefully look at what the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is teaching is to Americans, it is that most of the problems, most of the burning issues of today, can be solved simply by meditating. Don't rock the boat, don't get involved. Just sit down, look at your navel and meditate. And the thing's due to some strange logic due to cosmic vibration. We'll settle down by ourselves. This is exactly what the KGB and Marxist-Leninist propaganda want from Americans. To distract their opinion, attention, and mental energy from the real issues of the United States into non-issues, into a non-world, non-existent harmony. Obviously, it's more beneficial for the Soviet aggressors to have a bunch of duped Americans than Americans who are self-conscious, healthy, physically fit and alert to reality. "Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, obviously, he's not on the payroll of the KGB, but whether he knows it or not, he contributes greatly to the demoralization of American society, and he's not the only one. There are hundreds of those gurus who come to your country to capitalize on the negativity and stupidity of Americans. It's a fashion. It's a fashion to meditate; it's a fashion not to be involved. So, obviously, you can see if the KGB were that curious if they paid for my trip to Haridwar if they assigned me to that strange job. Obviously, they were very much fascinated. They were convinced that this type of brainwashing is very efficient and instrumental in the demoralization of the United States."

Brannon Howse: My friends, this is exactly why I laid out for you the four steps that the KGB sought to bring about to overthrow a country. Demoralized, destabilized, chaos, and now the new norm. The new norm is the utopia of Marxism. But he says that yoga, this spiritual practice yoga, was used and was well applauded by the KGB and the Soviet Union as very effective in helping them with the demoralization of America, even though they had nothing to do with it. Why? Because it taught people not to pay attention to what's going on. If you want the natural world to dissolve and to enter the spiritual world where you can get your chakras in a line and find peace, harmony, and your deity. Discover that your God. Maybe, perhaps even to meet a spirit or master guide, because after all, a spirit, a master guide, is an individual who has died and is through the process of reincarnation. Has become more highly evolved, and they become a spirit or master guide, and they can help you through life.

Brannon Howse: The New Agers openly admit that the most popular way to meet a spirit or master guide is through drugs or hypnosis, things like transcendental meditation or yoga. So, they would much rather the KGB have Americans not thinking about what's happening in the world global politics, geopolitics, the Cold War, armament, and nuclear war. They don't want you thinking about these things. They don't want you thinking about how the KGB is working in America to overthrow your way of government, your way of life, infiltrating your institutions, religion, education, and media. They don't want you paying any attention to that. They would rather you go into the spiritual and not listen to the negative so that you could enter the spiritual without any distraction while they take over your country. Oftentimes today, what do we hear American Christians say? Well, I just can't listen to that Brannon Howse. He's doom and gloom. Well, all we're doing is telling you what's happening. It's not doom and gloom. If you believe in what the Bible says is the ultimate culmination of the world. For Christians, it's not doom and gloom. The Bible calls it our blessed hope, the return of Christ. To take away his church, his bride to live with him forever.

Brannon Howse: We do know Jesus himself said to his disciples in Matthew 24 that many bad things will occur prior to this. Yet he said to his disciples, I've told you these things must happen so you will not fear. Yet, many people cannot seem to gather together the spiritual wherewithal to gird up the loins of their minds, to understand and listen to what's happening in the world without filling themselves with fear. Therefore they don't want to hear it, so they say it's doom and gloom. I don't want to pay attention. I don't want to read his books. I don't want to listen to his radio show. I don't want to watch his TV show. Well, they're playing right into the hands of the revolutionaries. They don't want you to know any of the warnings we're giving. They don't want you to know any of the warnings that I'm giving you and that, indeed, is what yoga is also all about. Entering the spiritual, not listening to anything negative so that you can come into the spiritual and align your chakras and come to peace and tranquility to make the natural world dissolve and enter the spiritual realm. So, isn't it interesting? The spiritual practice of yoga was said by the former KGB officer, Mr. Yuri, to be productive in the demoralization stage of the former Soviet Union. This yoga and transcendental meditation were very much complementary to set up the brainwashing of the American people.

Brannon Howse: A spiritual practice, which goes back to the point we're making earlier, that really at its heart, brainwashing was more accurately called 'hraimuashing.' Your heart or mind is part of your spiritual being. Your brain is not part of your spiritual being. Your mind is, your heart is, and your brain is simply gray matter. It's part of the natural world. When you die, your spirit will leave. The brain matter will remain. Again, if I do an autopsy, I can show you the brain, but I cannot show you the mind. And here it is, the spiritual practice of yoga. The spiritual practice of transcendental meditation was seen as being very productive to the 'hraimuashing,' the mind washing. What we know is brainwashing as part of fulfilling the stage of demoralization for the Soviet Union and their four-step process of demoralization, destabilization, chaos, and the new norm of Marxism-Leninism. It's a spiritual operation, and that's so interesting because today, secular humanism is no longer the dominant worldview in America, thus making the brainwashing much more likely. Do you understand what I just said? Cosmic humanism is really now the dominant worldview, New Age thinking. Post-modernism would be right there with it, but secular humanism certainly is not the dominant worldview. Secular humanism says that through human reason, man can solve his own problems. Through human reason, man can solve his own problems.

Brannon Howse: Well, that didn't work out so well, did it? We had World War I, World War II, and War After War. It hasn't worked out so well. Secondary humanism is no longer the dominant worldview. One reason why is because people realize they are indeed spiritual beings, whereas the secondary humanist said there is no such thing as the spiritual world. People know instinctively that there is a spiritual world. They are made up of both natural and spiritual, and they want a spiritual experience. Why do they want a spiritual experience? Because they want a spiritual salve for their guilty conscience. Why is their conscience guilty? Romans 1, 2, and 3 say, "Their conscience is guilty because the moral law, the character nature of God is placed on their heart and mind." Calm means with; science means knowledge. They sin with the knowledge. They offend a holy and just God, and thus they feel guilty. Roman says they are without excuse because the moral law is written on their heart and mind at the spiritual level. Their heart and their mind. They want a spiritual salve for their guilty conscience. Secular humanism offered nothing for that because it denied the spiritual realm. The New Age movement emphasizes the spiritual realm, which people today desire to have a spiritual experience for a couple of reasons. One is a spiritual start for their guilty conscience. And secondly, they want a spiritual experience because they've been told that through spiritual experiences, they can discover the meaning and purpose of life.

Brannon Howse: They can discover hidden knowledge and what life is really all about. Otherwise, without that, there seems to be no point to life. Nihilism or nihilism, life has no ultimate meaning, but if you believe in a spiritual world and a spiritual self, with your guilty conscience and spiritual practice. It opens your eyes to hidden knowledge or higher knowledge. Now you begin to understand what is the purpose of life, so spirituality solves two problems for sure. It gives them a spiritual salve to supposedly soothe their guilty conscience and spiritual cravings, and it also hopes to give them answers to life. So, here in America today, sector humanism has faded away. Cosmic Humanism, New Age, thanks to people like Oprah Winfrey and others, is quite the dominant worldview and will only increase with the idea of pantheism; all is God. Pantheism; God is in all. Mother Earth, we're all part of one. As these increases, more and more people are practicing yoga, and as they practice yoga, they no longer want to hear programs like this. They don't want to know what's going on in America. They don't want to know what's going on in the world because it'll kill their buzz. It'll keep them from getting their chakras in a line and having peace, tranquility, discovering their spirituality, and having that hidden knowledge. So, they reject the things of reason, logic, context, and understanding of the times.

Brannon Howse: Thus, can you imagine how the former Soviet Union, Putin, and all of his still FSB friends, formerly the KGB, his FSB friends are ecstatic that yoga is more the rage today than it was in 1984 when the former KGB officer Yuri was speaking? Because that means the brainwashing of Americans is more likely to lead to the demoralization and the destabilization of America because they're not paying attention. All right, my friends, that's my series on brainwashing. I actually did 19 hours on brainwashing. They were supposed to go to Brainwashed, the movie which is a two-hour documentary. I'm going to play one hour of it, but they went to the wrong file. After it was playing, I was like, "We'll leave it. I think that's pretty good stuff." So, that's 19 hours I have on that. I taught from this news desk, and it's available in my Situation Room at SituationRoom.net, 19 hours of understanding 12 systematic steps for brainwashing how they're going after education, media, and religion. You know, if we want to understand the enemy, we have to understand their tactics, right. That's what that 19-hour series is all about. Well, Mike is away tonight, traveling in multiple states tonight, touching down in several states. I talked to him, as I said a couple of times today.

Brannon Howse: We hope you'll be back with us tomorrow night, but we're holding down the fort until he is able to return. Now, again, I want you to also know, beginning at 7:30, when I come back on with Brannon House Live. Tonight, I'm going to be sharing with you about Jeremiah Denton. Jeremiah Denton was the longest-held prisoner of war. Perhaps some of you saw his film. I think it came out in about 1979. I remember watching it when it first aired on television called When Hell Was In Session. I'm going to play some very interesting clips for you tonight by Jeremiah Denton, who passed away in, I think, 2014. He went on to become a United States senator. Also, I will play a clip of Ronald Reagan talking about Jeremiah Denton. Jeremiah Denton was one of those men of a generation gone by. We need more men like that, like Jeremiah Denton, who went on to become a US senator. More men like Ronald Reagan, more men like John Wayne. These were men that were staunch anti-communist. Some of them actually, like Jeremiah Denton, experienced torture. I think he spent about eight years in the process of being a POW, including the Hanoi Hilton, where he was tortured relentlessly. You'll hear about it tonight. I'm also going to tell you about and let you hear a little bit of an interview I did with my friend Red McDaniel. "Red" is his nickname, Red McDaniel. He, too, is in the Hanoi Hilton.

Brannon Howse: I had the opportunity to interview him, well, I think in early 2020, and he spent several years in the Hanoi Hilton. Red McDaniel, and Jeremiah Denton, these men experienced the cruelty of communism. Here in America, we are getting a real good insight into the cruelty of the Communists as they have their revolution in America. Just in the last few hours, Biden has admitted, slipped up maybe, and admitted that abortion is killing a child. We also know that he has come out and said that those who are pro-life and the MAGA crowd are the most extreme. We know he wants to open up his Ministry of Truth, and he wants to go after conservatives, Christians, and patriots. This is communism. Joe Biden was put into place as a young man in his late twenties, I think 29, by the Council for a Livable World, a communist group. Now we know in California, they want to what? Allow you to kill a child 28 days after birth? You'll understand tonight the cruelty of communism from men who were tortured as POWs by the communist. What we're going to find out is that what we have lacked in America for the last few, well, at least the last two decades, is a strong anti-communist campaign. Now many of our young people think communism is cool, that it's just finding community and social justice, and it's the common good. Maybe what we need is to be re-educated about the threat of communism, the horrors, the murder, and the torture of communism by men that fought it and experienced it firsthand.

Brannon Howse: Tonight, we'll hear from POWs Jeremiah Denton and Red McDaniel. That starts at 7:30 after I do a quick live interview with Judge Napolitano. I would urge you to have as many young people as you can tune in tonight, 7:30 Central. They need to hear this history. It's something that should be taught in all our schools. I shared some of it on the radio today. The response was overwhelming that people said, "Please go deeper, go more on this tonight." And so we've heard your request, and we will, at about 7:35 Central. I hope you'll go to MyPillow.com. There's a buy one, get one sale. Look at that screen right there.
