WASHINGTON, June 26 (by Karin Zeitvogel for RIA Novosti) The Kremlin has practiced a homegrown technique called disinformation for centuries, including using it to slander the United States, fan the flames of anti-Semitism and convince much of the world that US government was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy 50 years ago, a new book by former Romanian spy chief Ion Mihai Pacepa says.
Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism, also alleges that seeds of Russian-born disinformation were sown in the United States during the 2008 presidential campaign of then senator Barack Obama, although they havent reached the same level of sophistication as in the Kremlin, which has been practicing disinformation since tsarist days.
Disinformation is defined in the book as spreading an idea in a foreign nation, while making it appear as if the idea originated in that nation.
Youre disguising your fingerprints, and the Kremlin is a master at it, Pacepas co-author, University of Mississippi law professor Ron Rychlak told RIA Novosti, explaining that the ex-Romanian spy chief cant give interviews because he has been living under an assumed identity in the United States and under US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) protection since he fled Romania in 1978.
Pacepa is reported to be the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence official to ever defect to the West and in 1990 wrote Red Horizons, which exposed the corruption and brutality of the regime of former Romanian President Nicolae Ceausescu.

When the American space program needed to allow astronauts to write in space (e.g. to keep logs), it spent millions of dollars to develop a pressurized pen that could write despite a low pressure environment and zero gravity. The Russians took a pencil.
I'm watching an obscure little movie called Primer on Netflix that made a reference to that, just 15 minutes ago!
What a coincidence.
“The Russian-State-owned media is now touting a book that claims Obama’s 2008 White House bid was a Kremlin operation.”
Perfectly credible to me.
I’m glad we don’t have any misinformation here in the US; when we air programs where all the white men are bad, and they’re only foiled by a melting pot of black family-oriented patriots, strong and wise women who are quite content to be men, and other assorted “others”, it looks just like the country I wake up to every day.../s
>>The Russians took a pencil.
How’d it work on the Moon?
>>The Russians took a pencil.
Howd it work on the Moon?....”
But they forgot the pencil sharpener!!!!
Russia has been doing this for decades....disinformation had it has it’s own command, for them it is serious....it is war, (the silent war)
"According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.The first stage being "demoralization".It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism.Most of the activity of the department [KGB] was to compile huge amount / volume of information, on individuals who were instrumental in creating public opinion. Publisher, editors, journalists, uh actors, educationalists, professors of political science. Members of parliament, representatives of business circles.Most of these people were divided roughly into two groups: those who would tow the Soviet foreign policy, they would be promoted to positions of power through media and public manipulation; [and] those who refuse the Soviet influence in their own country would be character assassinated OR executed physically, come Revolution. "--KGB Defector Yuri Bezmenov--Soviet Subversion of the Free Press (Ideological subversion, Destabilization, CRISIS - and the KGB)
Why would a pencil not work while on the moon?
Primer is an excellent movie.
DID the Russians write anything with their pencil on the Moon?
Tell us, Comrade, was the MYSTERY hand writing on
Nebuchadnez-zar-’s wall holding a Rossian pencil?
"...who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world, and through all time;...that it is time enough for the rightful purposes of civil government, for its officers to interfere when principles break out into overt acts against peace and good order; and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them. ""I HAVE SWORN UPON THE ALTAR OF GOD ETERNAL HOSTILITY TO EVERY FORM OF TYRANNY OVER THE MIND OF MAN"--The Virginia Act For Establishing Religious Freedom
--Thomas Jefferson, 1786
There’s another movie on Netflix - “Assassin of the Tsar”
It’s very clever in its illustration - don’t you agree Comrade Oblomov?
