Soviet Spy's Dire Warnings 30 Years Ago Come True in Obama's America

Soviet Spy's Dire Warnings 30 Years Ago Come True in Obama's America

Subversion as a strategy used against one's adversaries is not new. Chinese military general, strategist, and philosopher Sun Tzu wrote over 2,500 years ago:

"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."

In a 1985 interview, former Soviet KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov described the techniques of ideological subversion (short video below and full text),


that were used to undermine American values, traditions and institutions to the extent that the people will be unable or unwilling to resist takeover by the totalitarian ideology of communism; methods adopted and now being employed against the United States by the supporters of radical Islam.

According to Bezmenov:

"What it basically means is, to change the perception of reality, of every American, to such an extent that despite of the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interests of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country.

It's a great brainwashing process, which goes very slow[ly] and is divided [into] four basic stages. The first one [is] demoralization; it takes from 15-20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years which [is required] to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy, exposed to the ideology of the enemy. In other words, Marxist-Leninist ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students, without being challenged, or counter-balanced by the basic values of Americanism (American patriotism).

The result? The result you can see. Most of the people who graduated in the sixties (drop-outs or half-baked intellectuals) are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, [and the] educational system. You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated; they are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind[s], even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the logic of behavior. In other words, these people... the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To [rid] society of these people, you need another twenty or fifteen years to educate a new generation of patriotically-minded and common sense people, who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society.

As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures; even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union and show him [a] concentration camp, he will refuse to believe it, until he [receives] a kick in his fan-bottom. When a military boot crashes his... then he will understand. But not before that. That's the [tragedy] of the situation of demoralization."

Consider what Bezmenov described in 1985 and the Islamic indoctrination currently underway in our educational system; and Islamic law, Sharia, being slowly introduced into our legal system and culture by anti-Americans and the useful idiots, who will be the very people marked for extermination under a new totalitarian regime, as described by Bezmenov:

"Most of them [would be exterminated], yes. Simply because the psychological shock when they will see in [the] future what the beautiful society of ‘equality' and ‘social justice' means in practice, obviously they will revolt. They will be very unhappy, frustrated people, and the Marxist-Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. Obviously they will join the leagues of dissenters (dissidents).

Unlike in [the] present United States there will be no place for dissent in future Marxist-Leninist America. Here you can get popular and filthy-rich like Jane Fonda for being ‘dissident,' for criticizing your Pentagon. In [the] future these people will be simply squashed like cockroaches. Nobody is going to pay them nothing for their beautiful, noble ideas of equality. This they don't understand and it will be [the] greatest shock for them, of course."

Bezmenov describes the final stages of ideological subversion:

"The next stage is destabilization -and it takes only from two to five years to destabilize a nation-what matters [are] essentials: economy, foreign relations, [and] defense systems...The next stage, of course, is crisis. It may take only up to six weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis... And, after crisis, with a violent change of power, structure, and economy, you have [the so-called] period of normalization. It may last indefinitely. Normalization is a cynical expression borrowed from Soviet propaganda. When the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in ‘68, Comrade Brezhnev said, ‘Now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized.'"

"This is what will happen in [the] United States if you allow all these schmucks to bring the country to crisis, to promise people all kind[s] of goodies and the paradise on earth, to destabilize your economy, to eliminate the principle of free market competition, and to put [a] Big Brother government in Washington, D.C."

In these times, when the United States is under assault both at home and abroad by the totalitarian ideologies of radical Islam and the political left, Bezmenov's sage advice still rings true, such advice that President Ronald Reagan understood and took to the fight against Soviet aggression and why we eventually won the Cold War:

"Educate yourself, [and] understand what's going on around you. You are not living at [a] time of peace. You are in a state of war and you have precious little time to save yourself."

America is dead and within months of a massive, violent opinion

It is hard not to think that if you are an informed person - and NOT via the MSM but through people like Dr. Sellin.

As a student of the Bible I know two things relating to this...

1. The Last Days will be so bad that almost the whole human race gets wiped out.

2. We are ALWAYS to stand up to evil and back it down.

Therefore, my take is I have some serious work to do.

And so do you. And anyone who loves what our Founders created.

Never ever give up!!!

Yes Michael, the fight has been brutal, but there is evidence on both sides that America is waking up............on the one side, the evil ones are escalating their attacks as they view the tide turning against them.  On the other hand, we had the example the other night of republican debate candidates ganging up on the despicable main stream media...finally displaying "enough is enough" and taking them to the wood-shed for millions to witness...........Rubio making a great point of identifying the main stream media as the main "political action committee" for the democrat party...attacking the snake directly.

The righteous struggle is gaining, beginning to shine light and reject the liberal/democrat lies, deceit, distortion, destruction of every facet of American value system. We must press on not forget when the enemy is cornered every means to continue the fight will be used.  Our sacrifice will be required.

Can we recover, God willing I believe we can but it will take a president with the moral courage and strength of one that would pray as part of the first "state of the union" address. 

Trump, love or hate him, is the example of "total abandon of what others thing" and the catalyst that has brought the fight against the establishment and liberal/democrat operatives and given backbone to other candidates running for president to finally stand-up.

God has not abandoned America, America has abandoned God...when we recover our spiritual rudder and put it in the hand of God, our nation will reverse the slide into the abyss.

I will NOT say we need a President with moral courage.

The Bible says God gives people leaders who are reflections of themselves.

Think hard about that.

We are seeing ourselves in a mirror.

Guess where the problem lies?

With us. When enough of us get right with God things WILL change for the better.

All throughout history the forces of evil hammered on the moral values of groups of people and those who succumbed were brought to judgment.

Many did not and did great things.

It all depends on the sum total of a people's determination to live for God. Totally.

Evil has a determination to succeed that defies logic. We are commanded to push back with everything we've got.

To that I take my hat off to you.

My passion is to get lots of really good people communicating lots about all the things that matter.


I know you do too. I will enjoy cheering for you when God looks you in the eyes and says, "Well done."

So many times I asked Jesus why I was failing and the answer was always the same....keep trying!

Why don't you observe where God is at work then go join in?

Most now know he created ISIS and is supporting the terrorist country of Iran.

Our Founders would have used hemp on him. cut open and drain the extremely painful swollen glands under my arms...

Yikes, is there a doctor in the house???

Also, there are 31 chapters in Proverbs. There are 30 or 31 days in the month.

They are very short, about half a page, and take about 90 seconds to read one.

On the 1st read Chapter 1, 2nd Chapter 2. And so on. NEVER EVER STOP.

They were written by Solomon who is considered the wisest man who ever lived.

My wife and I have been doing this for 20 years. All these pages have fallen out of our Bible.

We still do it and it is AMAZING how God keeps it fresh every day.

What is more amazing is how much I still benefit from re-reading.

Still need that clunk over the head.

It does not hurt much. Don't be afraid.

Mike, Thank you. My passion is to get many many good people talking to each other about what really matters (frequently) then be unafraid to take the stand needed to back evil down.

King David is described as a man after God's own heart. In almost the same breath the writer cites David for having killed his tens of thousands. These were not random acts but totally in self-defense.

Do I need to connect the dots?

America achieved Normalization when the Berlin Wall came down, yet one can see we did not Win.

Russia has massive natural resources / military might and less that 30% of debt compared to us.

Russia is not invading sovereign nations.

ZIONISTS control our policies..Zionists could care less for Christians.

Zionists misuse our assets to achieve Their goals..POWER / EXPLOITATION.

Most Americans have their heads in the sand. I will not waste my time to expose the Zionist Plan....

i agree with Harry , we are burnt toast.


As individuals with cameras we must film the unconstitutional disrespectful acts perpetrated against ourselves and others.  We must hold our public representatives accountable and publish their transgressions far and wide for failure to comply with the laws placed over their behavior.

    We have to keep the internet from shutting down information through the unconstitutional trade deals like the CISPA, and TPP.  We must get the word out to counteract the programing already in place. We witness the system's death throws.

As if that were not bad enough, somehow the murderous groups who are guilty crimes against humanity  are pushing for the passage of the TPP.  Say no to giving one ounce of you livelihood to these criminals! Seek the truth and teach it to others!

COL HARRY RILEY you sound to me like you are just tired and have been beaten down by all the broken lawsby the elite and our communist government and the commies in congress.But i know your a good man and you will rejuvenate and come back stronger with your second wind.We all have felt the pressures of the clintons ' the bushes and now the muslim in cheif and i have heard countless of patriots that have said.they need to take some time away from the pressures of this evil govt.but they seem to come back later even stronger.We have raised our children to a relaxed generation and they have pretty much become zombies to the dumbing down of america.The colleges have taught them communism and everythings free.Have as many children as you want and the govt. welfare or the evil abortionist will take care of your children.We have allowed in our generation for the true GOD to be kicked out of our schools and satan let in.The rich television preachers have made a mockery of GOD and the people quit following GODS laws and have been governed by thier own laws and have not payed attention to thier govt.and it has allowed the peoples govt. to fall into the hands of tyrants but the saying goes evil will come in when good people do nothing.I will wait til the day when you HARRY RILEY get your second wind.

Race / Gary Hill  letters / talk are meaningless, voting is meaningless.

You can do nothing to stop the Zionists.
