Disinfo: 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'.

"Ukrainegate" gains momentum in the United States

As “Russiagate” proved to be a hoax, a “Ukrainegate” gains momentum in the USA. In the centre of the scandal is the former US Vice President, Joe Biden and the leadership of the Democratic Party. Ukrainian politicians, close to the Maidan movement, have been interfering with the US elections, offering the Democratic Party “dirt on Donald Trump”.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative denying Russia's interference in US election. No evidence given of Ukraine's interference in American election. For background read here.

The fire at the Notre Dame of Paris occurs at a suitable moment for the French Government

The fire at the Notre Dame occurs at a very suitable moment for a France, torn into pieces by protests and even more for France’s government. It is still unknown what will be uncovered by the investigation. But unfortunately, in the modern world, one can really believe in coincidences.

Disproof

Hinting on conspiracies is an instrument often used by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, suggesting "False Flag Operations" behind current event like the Skripal Case.

Leftist or Islamist extremism caused the fire at Notre Dame

It is too early to rule out “natural causes” for the fire at Notre Dame of Paris, but it is possible that the cathedral was set ablaze either by the Yellow Vests as an attack on Macron, or by Islamist extremists. Even if the Islamist are not responsible for the fire, the very fact that some young supporters of radical Islam has expressed joy about this event is horrible. The fire from Notre Dame will set all of Europe on fire.

Disproof

Unfounded claims, presented without any evidence. Hinting on conspiracies is an instrument often used by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, suggesting for example "False Flag Operations" are behind current event like the Skripal Case.
