Disinfo: A colour revolution took place in the US

Summary

A successful color revolution took place in the US. The deep state and the Washington swamp destroyed Trump and his supporters. It was a brilliantly conducted operation, that started in the democratic primaries. […] The in-mail voting is a big “know-how” which allowed Biden to win the elections and declare Trump illegitimate. Trump seriously challenged the people representing the deep state – Nancy Pelosi, Biden, 99% of American media that keep anti-Trump line, and their response was a color revolution.

And now look at what is happening in Ukraine and Georgia. After the colour revolution the political arena needs to be cleansed. All those dissenting the mainstream line end up in jail or killed, or in political margins. […] And the full cleansing of the information space. Like in Ukraine the information space was cleared of Russian sources, so in America they will get rid of anyone who has an alternative point of view.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about color revolutions and the alleged existence of "deep state".

There was no colour revolution in the US. A crowd of Donald Trump supporters broke into the US Capitol building. The storming of the Capitol was a culmination of weeks of false claims that the US election "were stolen". In fact allegations of electoral fraud have been dismissed more than 60 times by different US courts and judges, both Republican and Democrats, due to lack of any significant evidence, including the Supreme Court in two occasions. Donald Trump has lost the presidential election and the next US president, Joe Biden, will be inaugurated on the 20th of January, 2021.

The idea of a "Deep State" is frequently used by conspiracy theorists. Its manifestations might be different, but generally, the concept conjures up the image of a small group of men, deciding the fate of the world behind the scenes. However, there is no evidence of such a "Deep State" existing in the United States. No reputable political scientists and researchers confirm the existence of a “Deep State” in the United States, let alone that Nancy Pelosi or Joe Biden belong to it.

Bloomberg provides reasons to trust Russian vaccine Sputnik V

Bloomberg journalist Sam Fazeli provides the list of reasons to trust Russian vaccine Sputnik V. These reasons are:

Russia with this vaccine is fifth on the list of vaccine makers with the most doses under contract through pre-purchase agreements;

Sputnik V has been tested in a phase III trial;

Efficacy at each interim analysis in the Sputnik V trial was consistently at 90% or above;

Sputnik V was developed using the kind of advanced vaccine technology employed in shots made by the AstraZeneca-Oxford University.

The journalist made evidence that the Sputnik V vaccine may well be as strong a candidate as the ones created in Western labs. He also stated that he would opt for a ride on Sputnik rather than a trip to CoronaVac’s golden stars.

Disproof

The claim advances a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative concerning the Russian-made coronavirus vaccine, Sputnik V. The message is based on the manipulation and quotes taken out of context.

In the original text Sam Fazeli covered all doubts linked to Sputnik V. He wrote:

The US is a totalitarian state

The United States has always been and still is a totalitarian state. Unlike most countries in the world, it exercises double totalitarianism, that is vertical and horizontal. Suppression of certain behaviour occurs vertically at the level of government, and horizontally at the level of society, which has become an element defining the national culture. For example, you are obligated to trim the lawn in front of your house, and if you do not, your neighbour will be the first to report you to the police, or more precisely, all of your neighbours will do so.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative, which seeks to discredit the United States and liberal democracies by claiming that liberal societies are totalitarian systems and that liberal democracies, like 20th-century totalitarian dictatorships, practice repression against the population.

Although the US and other Western democracies today face multiple and serious domestic and foreign threats, it is not true that liberal democracies are obsolete, have collapsed or are being replaced with dictatorships. Reports of the death of liberal democracy have been greatly exaggerated. Moreover, the article’s attempt to equate the West’s liberal societies to totalitarian regimes is an obvious falsification of reality. According to the 2020 World Press Freedom Index, the US is in 45th place out of 180 countries.

Russiagate was a collective hysteria campaign to control American society by shadowy elites

The standard way to control the behaviour of American society is mass hysteria campaigns, as was the case with McCarthyism (anti-communism) in the 1950s, or “Russiagate” in the past four years. Men in the shadows and holders of the levers in the United States are moving the hysteria levers to the extent that the totalitarianism of society automatically turns itself in the desired direction, so society itself becomes the represser of dissidents (dismissing Trump supporters from their jobs, or harassing and blocking them on social media, for example).

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russiagate which denies Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, and secret power elites.

Robert Mueller's investigation concluded that Russia did interfere in the 2016 election. Mueller’s report maintains that “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities”. Nevertheless, it states that Russian interference activities did take place.
