GOP Unveils 'Commitment To America' Plan With Stock Videos Of Russia, Ukraine

House Republican leaders on Friday unveiled their “Commitment to America” agenda for 2023 ― and with it, an inspirational video full of scenes presented as exceptional imagery of America that were actually stock footage from Russia and Ukraine.

The GOP’s video, “The Preamble to the Commitment to America,” opens with a narrator highlighting aspects of what it means to be an American.

“We celebrate the rich heritage of the American story and the vibrancy of the American Dream,” the voice says, over footage of a drilling rig at sunrise.

But this video snippet, an apparent nod to America’s natural resources, wasn’t filmed in America. It’s stock footage created by Serg Grbanoff, a filmmaker based in Russia.

Grbanoff told HuffPost that he filmed this scene in Russia’s Volgograd region.
In another scene, a boy is seen smiling and running in a field with a toy airplane. The words “Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” appear on the screen, a reference to the Declaration of Independence.

This clip was also created by Grbanoff, and also filmed in the Volgograd region.

Shame the GOPathetic party has to rely on pictures and videos from their hero's best buddy, Putin's country, to get the shots they want to describe America.

It's not that they are necessarily idiots--it's those that buy into their bullshit who are the idiots.
Yup...great presentation as long as you are a white, hetero male, who's not pregnant. I like the part, make 'government accountable'..I guess they have already forgotten about the criminal in charge, the orange turd, the mango mussolini.....still trump's party.

I also like 'Dems spending spree'...trump and gop added 2 trillion to deficit, President Biden's budget reduced the fed deficit by $350billion...
