DISINFO: A left-liberal coup took place in the US


It is not news at all that a left-liberal coup has taken place in the US and terror begins against tens of millions of people of a different ideology and a different lifestyle.

One group in the US, voluntarily or out of fear, crushed another group and facilitated the coup. But why do we then need any kind of elections and democracy? This very democracy was thrown away like a dirty rag, by openly falsifying the vote. And they will continue to trample on it further.


An unfounded claim, describing the democratic process of electing Joe Biden for President as a “coup”. The claims in the article are part of a recurring disinformation narrative about the US in the context of the US presidential election.

In its interim assessment on the conduct of the election, the OSCE finds that the contest was:

"competitive and well managed" (p. 1), noting that "evidence-deficient claims about election fraud" (ibid.) have been refuted by "election officials at all levels" (p. 3) and "national security agencies" (p. 11).

There were extensive investigations about possible fraud, which turned out to be unfounded. This unprecedented scrutiny led to the conclusion that the November 3rd elections were the most secure elections in the history of the United States.

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 on two occasions.

You can see other examples of this disinformation narrative such as that What we are witnessing (in the US) is a successful Coup d’etat; that The “Democrats” usurpation of power in the US is a fact; that Democrats and globalist Republicans stole Donald Trump’s victory in US presidential elections 2020; that Biden came to power after a Colour Revolution; that Dominion deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide; that Voting systems were designed to be hacked and were used by Biden to win the elections; that Massive fraud in the US 2020 Presidential elections.
