Disinfo: Donald Trump is the spokesman of a group of American patriots who were horrified by the 9/11 inside job

Summary

Donald Trump is the spokesman of a group of American patriots who were horrified by the 9/11 inside job and who have always opposed the messianic-globalist project of the neocons and their allies.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative suggesting the US government's involvement in the 9/11 attacks. The article adds a new twist to the narrative by suggesting that Donald Trump represents US patriots who were horrified by the alleged 9/11 “inside job” and that fought an alleged “neocon messianic-globalist project” (which the article hints is behind the 9/11 attacks) .

9/11 conspiracy theories have been refuted several times including by the “9-11 Commission" created by US legislators.

Furthermore, Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 US presidential elections had nothing to do with 9/11, and his political supporters were not motivated by any 9/11 conspiracy theory. Trump’s 2016 victory was due to a number of factors that were completely unrelated to 9/11. Among such factors were the disillusionment of working-class white Americans with the Democratic party, popular hostility to left-liberal immigration and free-trade policies, and widespread popular distrust of the US political, media and business establishment. See here and here.

Read previous disinformation cases claiming that 9/11 was no terrorist attack and that the US government was behind it and that the US government silenced hackers that threatened to expose its involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

Political conspiracy of important sectors of US power élite has rigged the US elections

A political conspiracy of important sectors of the US power élite has rigged the US elections against President Trump. It is obvious that tens of thousands of Trump votes have been deliberately “forgotten” or cancelled, tens of thousands of mailed-in ballots have been destroyed while hundreds of thousands have been faked in favour of Joe Biden.

Disproof

The story is part of an emerging pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative seeking to delegitimise the conduct and results of the 2020 US presidential election.

The article provides no evidence of the alleged conspiracy of “important sectors of the US power élite” to rig the 2020 presidential elections. Furthermore, there is no evidence to support the article’s claim that massive fraud was committed during the elections. Several reliable sources debunked the massive fraud claims: the BBC, The Guardian, the New York Times, Forbes, Le Monde.

After Euromaidan Ukraine lost its sovereignty and is falling apart

Euromaidan that started on 21 November 2013, radically changed the lives of almost every Ukrainian. In the overwhelming majority of cases, these changes were for the worse, such as a civil war that soon began in Eastern Ukraine. Not a single Maidan slogan has been implemented. None of the leaders of the Maidan has kept any of their promises. Ukraine has lost the remnants of the signs of a sovereign state and is on the verge of complete collapse.

A coup d’état took place, and Western puppets came to power. Seven years have passed since the beginning of the Maidan and Ukraine has changed beyond recognition: no sovereignty remained.

Disproof

This is an example of recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the 2013-2014 Maidan protests, the war in Ukraine, and Ukrainian statehood.

Ukraine is a sovereign country. It is not falling apart. It has a functioning government, embassies in other countries, judicial, law enforcement, and other authorities. It is a democratic country where people can choose the president, the parliament, and local administration. For instance, in 2019, it held presidential and parliamentary elections, and in 2020 - local elections.

Bucharest has a project that aims to absorb Moldova, Transnistria and some regions of Ukraine

Bucharest is hatching the project of Greater Romania, which involves the absorption of Moldova, Transnistria and Chernivtsi and Odesa regions of Ukraine. Thus, the Romanian strategists hope to turn Romania into the leader of South-Eastern Europe with access to the Balkans and the Black Sea region with the spread of Romanian influence all the way to the Caspian Sea. The existence of the Transnistrian state spoils the whole picture for the Romanians. Greater Romania cannot move forward, because there is Transnistria and Russian peacekeepers on the Dniester. The displacement of Russian blue helmets from Transnistria is a top priority for Bucharest.

Disproof

No evidence is given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Romania, questioning Moldova's and Ukraine's integrity.

Romania adheres to international law regarding state borders and has no territorial claims upon Ukraine or Moldova.
