American “Deep State” strikes, NATO is a part of it

Summary

The American “Deep State” strikes.  NATO has links to it.

The book “The Deep State Strikes” aims to shed light on the dark sides of world and background politics.  This volume contains several guest articles and deals critically with the activities of the so-called “Deep State”.  “This is also called ‘Permanent Bureaucracy’ or ‘Permanent Government’ and is completely independent of democratic elections”.

In this book, former air force officer of the German Armed Forces Jochen Scholz analyses the USA in its current state of world politics as a “tumbling hegemon in aggression mode”.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Western hegemony and belligerent West.

The idea of a "deep state" has always been very popular among 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 "permanent bureaucracy" or "permanent government" existing in the United States.  Therefore there is also no evidence that NATO has any connection to the so-called 'deep state'.

NATO itself rejected the positive agenda in its relations with Russia

NATO itself rejected the positive agenda in its relations with Russia. It [the agenda] does not exist. And there are no signs that NATO knows how to resolve this deadlock.

In recent years Russia has faced unprecedented NATO activity near its borders. NATO calls it “the prevention of Russian aggression”.

Disproof

A recurring narrative on NATO enlargement and NATO-Russian relations, also seeking to portray NATO as having belligerent agenda against Russia.

NATO reached out to Russia with a series of partnership initiatives, culminating in the foundation of the NATO-Russia Council in 2002.  No other country outside the alliance has such a privileged relationship with NATO.

EU institutions take away freedom from the European nations

The European Institutions take away the freedom from the European nations and introduce useless standards, legal and economic. They also interfere through these instruments in cultural issues and issues related to social policy and migration.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the corrupt and undemocratic EU and on the failed European values.

Article 5 of the Treaty on the European Union ensured the principle of subsidiarity, which guarantees that decisions are taken as closely as possible to the citizen and that constant checks are made to verify that action at EU level is justified in light of the possibilities available at national, regional or local level. It is the principle whereby the EU does not take action (except in the areas that fall within its exclusive competence), unless it is more effective than action taken at national, regional or local level.
