Ex-Soviet Era Spy-chief tells how ‘MSM’ have become disinformation tools

Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, one of the highest-ranking Soviet-era bloc intelligence officials ever to defect to the West and worked with the Central Intelligence Agency in various operations against the former Eastern Bloc, stated that America’s “mainstream media” have become nothing more than disinformation tools.

Pacepa stated that over his 66 years that he has been connected with the intelligence business with 27 in the Soviet bloc and 39 in the U.S., he has learned that changing minds by manipulating the media is what Russian Marxism has always been all about. Now he sees a unique form of Americanized dezinformatsyia, “ disinformation”,  intent on convincing America that its traditional free-market capitalist system, which made it the leader of the world, is somehow evil, and that the only way of the future is the progressivist redistribution of America’s wealth and its message of free everything for everybody, accomplished by “soaking the rich.”

Pacepa continued:

The historic election of a capitalist entrepreneur, Donald Trump, as U.S. president conclusively proved that the great American middle class wanted to free itself from the claws of former president Barack Obama’s Marxism – now re-baptized “progressivism” – and likewise from his ruinous flirtation with the alien god of Kremlinist autocracy. Obama left us with a wide array of frightening threats, from a raving, nuclear-armed North Korean tyrant to a catastrophic Soviet-style national debt of almost $20 trillion.

Unfortunately, our leftist media – ignoring America’s decades-long war against the ruinous Marxist concept that governments, not the people, own their countries – seem ready to ignite a new American civil war. A war over an alien system – Marxist progressivism – that in a different time and place dispossessed a third of the world’s population of its properties, killed tens of millions, made itself a religion and its leader the only god allowed.

Out of 1,331 daily newspapers in our still-capitalist nation, only two – the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Florida Times-Union – unconditionally endorsed the capitalist candidate Donald Trump during the election campaign, and little seems to have changed since then.

A Pew Research Center analysis of 3,000 news stories published in the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency found that only 5 percent were positive, and that 62 percent of them portrayed the capitalist President Trump as incompetent, his political views as repugnant and his advisers as fools.

So, let’s tell it like it is – the media are dis-informing America. It wasn’t always like that. In January 1990, when U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, R.-Va., succeeded in extricating my daughter and her husband from Marxist Romania, 44 American radio and television stations joyfully proclaimed their arrival in Washington. The Washington Post was the first to interview them, and I still treasure its powerful condemnation of Marxist disinformation and terror by reporter Judith Weinraub.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa is the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence official ever to defect to the West, who currently lives under deep cover in the U.S. as a proud American citizen. In 1988, Gen. Pacepa published “Red Horizons,” which exposed the crimes and corruption of his former boss, Romanian President Nicolae Ceausescu, prompting the dictator to post multi-million-dollar bounties on Pacepa’s head and send assassination squads to the U.S. to kill him – unsuccessfully. “Red Horizons” was translated into 27 languages and republished in a Mao-style pocket book that circulated within the Soviet bloc. President Reagan called the book “my Bible for dealing with dictators.”

In 2013, Pacepa teamed up with professor Ronald Rychlak to write “Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism,” published by WND Books, which also generated an award-winning film documentary, “Disinformation: The Secret Strategy to Destroy the West.” A major Hollywood film is now being produced based on “Disinformation.”

On Wikipedia, Pacepa defected during July 1978 by walking into the American Embassy in Bonn while in Germany, where he had been sent by Ceauşescu with a message to Chancellor Helmut Schmidt. He was flown secretly to Andrews Air Force Base near Washington, D.C., in a United States military airplane.

As news reporter for the Conservativefiringline.com and as a United States Air Force veteran, having served against the former USSR during the Cold War, Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa analysis on what is going with most of the mainstream media is indeed, fact.
