Disinfo: Jews distort American politics


Zionist Jews have distorted American politics since the time of President Harry S. Truman. President after president has backed down versus Israel when confronted by Jewish power. […] Jews are essentially able to shut down any discussion of Palestine or of Palestinian rights. Given the extreme over-representation of Jews in both the news generation process and in various choke points in the political process, an honest discussion of Israel-Palestine and the actual U.S. interests in the region is extremely difficult to find anywhere in the mainstream media. […]

Beyond all that, if one doubts the power of the Jewish/Israel lobby internationally, note one of the first actions undertaken by the new coup government in Bolivia. It has moved to reestablish diplomatic relations with Israel as a top priority. Brazil also sought a closer relationship with Israel after conservative Jair Bolsonaro was elected president and pledged to visit the Jewish state, a promise which he carried out in March. Everyone in the world understands that the way to gain favor with Washington is to go through Israel.


This case propagates an old anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that is frequently invoked in pro-Kremlin disinformation: that the Jewish people are an international cabal secretly controlling or poisoning the global "elite"; in this particular case, the media and national governments.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

The protesters want Hong Kong to become a US colony

Despite the overwhelming pro-democracy vote on 24 November 2019, protests continue. They were waving US flags, chanting the Star-Spangled Banner and are asking for more support. They pledge not to let go until all their demands are met. Essentially, they want total independence from Beijing and become a US colony.


This is conspiracy theory consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the US or West funding the Hong Kong protests.

Pro-Kremlin media have long used the disinformation narrative, applied in a wide range of contexts, that any anti-government protests are funded by the US and do not emerge organically. Examples include colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, and Ukraine's Euromaidan in 2014. Western NGOs are often targeted by pro-Kremlin disinformation as agents of this subversive and state-driven influence.

US biological laboratories were exposed in Georgia and the Baltic

About a year ago, the US biological laboratories were exposed in Georgia and the Baltic States, where they modify viruses and many serious diseases.


Conspiracy theory with no evidence given, based on recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the biological weapons.

See similar disinformation cases: the US prepares biological weapons against Russia, the US is constructing secret biological labs, Pentagon is working out a biological war strategy in the Baltics.

The West invented the “climate hoax” to stop Russia’s economic development

The West is using activists like Greta Thunberg as a propaganda tool to stop its competitors, especially Russia, from economic development.


This is a recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy theory targeting Greta Thunberg and accusing the West of allegedly exploiting the environmental agenda and climate change topic for self-serving reasons, and as a means to weaken Russia.

Climate change is a scientific fact. Humans are increasingly influencing the climate and the earth's temperature by burning fossil fuels, cutting down rain-forests and farming livestock. This adds enormous amounts of greenhouse gases to those naturally occurring in the atmosphere, increasing the greenhouse effect and global warming. Preventing dangerous consequences of the climate change is the key priority for the EU.
