Wat is de invloed van de Russen op de Republikeinse Partij ?
House Republicans just rolled out their official "Commitment to America” plan for 2023 with an inspirational video chock full of scenes presented as exceptional imagery of America -- but that are actually stock footage from Russia and Ukraine.
“We celebrate the rich heritage of the American story,” says the narrator in the GOP's video as it features a clip of a drilling rig at sunset.
That clip is a stock video of a drilling rig in Russia's Volgograd region.
Here's a side-by-side of the image used in the GOP's video -- a scene apparently aimed at celebrating America's natural resources -- and the original stock footage filmed in Russia.
>>>But wait, there's more!
Here's a side-by-side of a boy featured in the GOP's video -- with the words "liberty and the pursuit of happiness" on the screen, a nod to America's Declaration of Independence -- and the original stock footage, filmed in Russia's Volgograd region.
>>>The GOP's video, at one point, shows a woman walking in a grocery store as the narrator talks about the "crippling inflation" in America caused by Democrats.
Except the footage is from a European grocery store.
If you look closely on the bottom left, you can see a tag hanging on one of the shelves that says “AKCIA,” a Slovak word that means “action.”
Informally, “AKCIA” is used to designate sales in Slovakian stores.
