The Pro-Russia Conservatives

By: Cliff Kincaid

I spent 40 years fighting left-wing disinformation and now spend time exposing right-wing disinformation, some of it stemming from the QAnon movement. Consider the message from a “reader” concerned that my attacks on Russia and China have gone too far and miss the point about the real cabal behind world events. He blames the Jews.

He advised me to get my hands on the book The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion because it would “change your attitude on right/left China/Russia narrative.” He said it “is an amazing eye-opener for all the problems we face and the script/narrative they give us.”

A disinformation campaign to blame the Jews is surfacing once again, at a time when Russia is once against threatening aggression.

Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking defector from the former Soviet bloc, has explained communist involvement in the Protocols forgery, saying “The Jews, who were not protected by the power of a state, proved a convenient enemy for both leftist and rightist totalitarians…” That includes Hitler and the Nazis but also Russia and its KGB, which invented a campaign, Code-named Operation SIG, using the anti-Jewish forgery for anti-American propaganda purposes.

Interestingly, some QAnon supporters now buy into the notion that Russia is somehow a Christian nation. The QAnon book, Love Joy Trump – A Chorus of Prophetic Voices, refers to Russian President and former KGB colonel Vladimir Putin being a “kindred” spirit of the MAGA movement.

Using the Jews as scapegoats is not new. It is surfacing now, I suspect, to undermine those conservatives, like myself, exposing Russian and Chinese disinformation operations, at a time when China has unleashed a dangerous virus on the world and Russia is threatening to invade Ukraine (again).

Chinese Military Aggression Towards Taiwan is Escalating, Biden Ignores

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

A small congressional delegation arrived in Taiwan last week to assess the defense conditions and operations in Asia. It is remarkable however that prior to the departure, the Chinese embassy in Washington, DC sent an email demanding the trio be canceled. Imagine that… our elected officials are supposed to comply with the Chinese Communist Party and their demands.

In part from Axios:

  • Six Republican lawmakers who visited Taiwan earlier this month to meet with Tsai and other Taipei officials faced similar calls from Beijing’s embassy in Washington, per Foreign Policy.
  • Rep. Mark Takano (D-CA), the House Veterans’ Affairs chair, and leader of the delegation to Taiwan praised Taiwan to Tsai as a “democratic success story, a reliable partner and a force for good in the world,” in comments that are sure to further anger Beijing, per Reuters.

“Under [Tsai’s] administration, the bonds between us are more positive and productive than they have been for decades. Our commitment to Taiwan is rock solid and has remained steadfast as the ties between us have deepened. Taiwan is a democratic success story, a reliable partner, and a force for good in the world.”
— Rep. Takano

The big picture: Takano, Slotkin, and Reps. Nancy Mace (R-SC), Colin Allred (D-TX), and Sara Jacobs (D-CA) were in Taiwan to discuss matters including regional security, U.S.-Taiwan relations “and other significant issues of mutual interest” with Taipei officials, per a statement from the American Institute in Taiwan, the de facto embassy.
