Disinfo: The cybercracy, the Deep State and the Pentagon subdued Trump after the assault on the Capitol

Summary

The cybercracy, the Deep State and the Pentagon subdued Trump. The leaving US president made very powerful enemies, who ended up joining forces against him. It is remarkable the brave loneliness of Trump in face of the Deep State that at the end of the day, along with the cybercracy and Wall Street, hold the leaving president, who had no choice but to accept an orderly transition.

After the assault on the Capitol, the Deep State has the perfect justification to attack Donald Trump. He has been censored in the mainstream media as well as in social media. There had never been such a consensus among the left-leaning and right-leaning press of all over the world as in face of a phenomenon called Trump.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about global elites secretly ruling the world, and specifically a so-called ‘Deep State’ in the United States who rule above elected officials. This narrative aims to question the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions and, in this case, to favour Donald Trump by framing him as the victim of a conspiracy and the Biden Administration as illegitimate. The claim is a conspiracy theory and no evidence is presented to back it.

See other examples of these disinformation narratives, such as claims that the result of the US 2020 election doesn’t matter because the real ruler is the Deep State, which will kill any US president that confronts it and is moving the country towards war with Iran and Russia; that Hillary Clinton published the Deep State strategy for the world; or that Covid-19 vaccines will lead to full spectrum dominance.

The EU plans an international court for Lukashenka

The EU plans an international court for Lukashenko. The European Union is considering the possibility to create an international tribunal in the context of the coup attempt in Belarus.

Pro-Western opposition in Belarus has been trying for months to implement a revolutionary scenario in the country. Putschists are supported by Western countries, while Poland and Lithuania are directly supervising the coup. Now the EU Special Representative for Human Rights Eamon Gilmore is threatening with an international court for those “involved in acts of violence against demonstrators”, pointing that this tribunal may become an additional mechanism of pressure on Belarusian leadership.

Disproof

The claim is false. The article deliberately distorts the words of the EU special representative for human rights Eamon Gilmore who, after being asked in an interview with Deutsche Welle if an international tribunal to prosecute human rights violations against demonstrators in Belarus was realistic, he replied affirmatively, though he clarified that this kind of courts work on the complementary principle and act only if the state involved is unwilling or unable to bring these people to justice. This is very different from “threatening with an international court”, and it is clear in the original interview that Mr. Gilmore was only answering to a hypothetical question.

International tribunals as mechanisms for transnational justice are generally organised through the United Nations - either as specific courts such as the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia or as hybrid courts such as the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia.

The EU will help Scotland to fight for its independence

One minute after the UK finally left the EU on the midnight of January 1, 2021, Scotland’s prime minister Nicola Sturgeon tweeted: “Scotland will be back soon, Europe don’t turn off the lights”. One hour later, an article she wrote was published in the European edition of Politico under the expressive headline: “Brexit changed the rules of the game for Scottish independence”. If her tweet can be considered a beautiful gesture of a politician, the publication of her article in Politico, whose headquarters are in Brussels, clearly insinuates that the European Union has the intention to provide support for Scotland’s separatism and take a section of the former Great Britain.

Disproof

The claim is false. Politico Europe is a private media company unrelated to the European Union, which has no say in the contents that this outlet decides to publish. Therefore, the claim that the publication of Nicola Sturgeon’s article “insinuates that the EU has the intention to provide support for Scotland’s separatism” is baseless.

Besides, the European Union has no intention to help Scotland fight for its independence. Some European leaders and former EU officials made it clear that, while an independent Scotland may be welcome back in the block if it applied to rejoin, this would only happen if it achieved its independence in a way consistent with British and international legislation, which would include the permission of the UK’s Parliament to launch a new referendum.

Ukraine refusal to register Sputnik V will show criminal intention against its own citizens

A Ukrainian pharmaceutical company has applied to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine for registration of Sputnik V.

The refusal by the authorities or any obstruction of the legal procedure for registering the Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine in Ukraine will indicate the criminal intention of the authorities to deprive Ukrainian citizens of the right to receive medical protection against the coronavirus.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on coronavirus aiming to promote the Sputnik V vaccine.

In general, the Sputnik V vaccine has been met with international skepticism, and even the World Health Organisation expressed some reservations, especially as it hasn’t completed large trials to test the vaccine’s safety and efficacy. Rolling out an inadequately vetted vaccine could endanger the people who receive it.
