Truth Matters, not Fake News
Book Report: Real History vs. Government Control of World News
This book reveals a history of massive deception disseminated by leaders in the Soviet Empire, as they controlled news outlets during the Cold War. Many lies parroted in the mainstream news media are straight from the socialist disinformation strategy which is not only flourishing in the world today, but steadily increasing in power. ~C.D.

Former spy chief reveals secret strategies for undermining freedom, attacking religion, and promoting terrorism
By Lt. General Ion Mihai Pacepa
And Professor Ronald J. Rychlak
Lt. General Ion Mihai Pacepa served as acting chief of communist Romania’s espionage service and top adviser to President Nicolae Ceausescu. In July 1978, he was granted political asylum by the United States, where he continues to live as a proud American citizen. His first book, Red Horizons, brought down Romania’s communist dictator and was subsequently republished in 27 countries. His later book, Programmed to Kill, was judged a “must read for everyone interested in the assassination of President Kennedy.” Having survived several communist assassination attempts and still vigorous in his 80s, Gen. Pacepa remains an astute and uniquely insightful writer on current affairs.
In Disinformation, You’ll Discover:
- How destroying the reputation of good leaders has been developed into a high art and science.
- How Pope Pius XII—a generation ago the world’s most high-profile Christian leader, who personally saved countless Jews from Hitler’s Holocaust—was transformed, through the magic of disinformation, into a Nazi sympathizer.
How Christianity and Judaism have been targeted for constant denigration and defamation through an ongoing campaign of disinformation.
How the Soviet bloc planted 4,000 agents of influence in the Islamic world, armed with hundreds of thousands of copies of the most infamous anti-Semitic book in history, to fan the flames of ancient Arab resentments against the U.S. and Israel and sow the seeds of anti-Semitism that would later bloom in the form of violence and terror toward Jews and Christians.
- How the defamatory attacks on American soldiers John Kerry made before Congress upon his return from Vietnam—charges later discredited and repudiated—were identical to a contemporaneous KGB disinformation campaign concocted to turn Americans against their own leaders.
- How supposedly respectable institutions like the World Council of Churches have long been infiltrated and controlled by Russian intelligence.
- How much of the world came to believe that the U.S. government itself masterminded the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
- How the Soviet Union has been transformed into the first intelligence dictatorship in history.
How disinformation is still very much alive today, remaining a powerful engine in the ongoing socialist transformation of America.
Praise of Disinformation
“Disinformation is a history of a still-hidden part of the Cold War—the part hidden as deeply as the KGB’s moles in Western intelligence services—which has to be studied to truly understand how communism sought to subvert everything in its path. Like Whittaker Chambers’ Witness, any study of the Cold War without Disinformation would be profoundly incomplete.” ~Je Babbin, former deputy undersecretary of defense and author of In the Words of Our Enemies, and Inside the Asylum: How the U.N. and Old Europe Are Worse Than You Think
“Challenging false histories and subtle slanders, Pacepa and Rychlak take us on a journey through the Empire of Disinformation. Here we learn the theory and practice of the Big Lie deployed against Christianity—against popes and bishops. We learn how the Kremlin, even after the collapse of Communism, continues its war against the West; we learn how dezinformatsiya is used to inspire a deep hatred of the Jews in order to mobilize Islam as a battering ram against Israel and America—to the benefit of Russia. If you want to understand the forces at work behind the decline of Christianity and the rise of militant Islam, you must read this book.” ~Jeffrey Nyquist, author Origins of the Fourth World War, columnist, and radio talk show host on WIBG (Ocean City, NJ)
“As a Jew growing up in New York, I hated even hearing Pope Pius XII’s name. but after seven years of investigating and 46,000 pages of pertinent documents collected, I came to the startling discovery that Pius XII was revered and praised as a hero by all Jews during, and just after, the war. If you want to know how 1 billion people were tricked into hating him, read this book by Lt. General Ion Mihai Pacepa and Professor Ron Rychlak about the Kremlin’s still-secret dezinformatsiya. That immense machinery accomplished the worst character assassination of the twentieth century, and caused great strain between Jews and Catholics. But let me warn you: this book is scary! When you read it, you will discover how you were maneuvered like a chess piece to achieve a specific goal. You will also learn that the dezinformatsiya enterprise is still dividing the Judeo-Christian world with deadly international consequences.” ~Gary Krupp, chairman of Pave the Way Foundation, dedicated to reconciling relations among the world’s religions
“Written by two foremost experts, this book is an eye-opening, demystifying work of political and historical archeology, a passionate and captivating endeavor to highlight the communist techniques of cynical deception, vicious plots, and perversely skillful concoction of propaganda legends masquerading as historical evidence. The authors display impressive erudition and unique insights into the deep secrets of the Soviet and post-Soviet disinformation machine. As a former highest-level intelligence officer within the Soviet Bloc who broke with the system for moral reasons and courageously exposed its terrorist underpinnings, Lt. General Ion Mihai Pacepa is a formidable witness to and a respected analyst of the communist intrigues, schemes, and manipulations.” ~Vladimir Tismaneanu, author of Stalinism for All Seasons: A Political History of Romanian Communism, director of the university of Maryland’s Center for the Study of Post-Communist Societies, and president of Romania’s Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes
