Disinfo: Russiagate was a collective hysteria campaign to control American society by shadowy elites

Summary

The standard way to control the behaviour of American society is mass hysteria campaigns, as was the case with McCarthyism (anti-communism) in the 1950s, or “Russiagate” in the past four years. Men in the shadows and holders of the levers in the United States are moving the hysteria levers to the extent that the totalitarianism of society automatically turns itself in the desired direction, so society itself becomes the represser of dissidents (dismissing Trump supporters from their jobs, or harassing and blocking them on social media, for example).

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russiagate which denies Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, and secret power elites.

Robert Mueller's investigation concluded that Russia did interfere in the 2016 election. Mueller’s report maintains that “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities”. Nevertheless, it states that Russian interference activities did take place.

The 448-page Mueller report issued in March 2019 (see here) contains copious detail about how Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, both by using social media to influence American voters with disinformation and by hacking into the Clinton campaign’s computers.

A previous (2017) report prepared by the US Intelligence Community analysed the motivation and scope of the Kremlin's intentions for the US election and the Kremlin's use of cyber tools and media campaigns to influence US public opinion. The report concluded that Moscow interfered in the US elections and that it had carried out this effort "in sweeping and systematic fashion".

As concluded earlier by the US intelligence community and by Mueller’s own inquiry “the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts”.

Read here previous cases claiming the Russiagate was a hoax invented by the American deep state, that the US President’s Russia affair is a factless conspiracy theory and that the Mueller Report never presented tangible evidence of Russian interference in the US elections.

This disinformation message appeared in the same article as the claim that the US is a totalitarian state.

The ”Deep State” lured the passionate protestors into storming the Capitol

It’s extremely suspicious that the US Capitol was so poorly defended despite there being an ongoing session of Congress on such an historic day and after weeks of preparation to ensure the site’s safety ahead of Trump’s long-planned Save America March. It’s even more baffling that some of the police officers removed the barricades and even opened the doors to some of the protesters, which in hindsight suggests that the “deep state” wanted to tempt the most “overly passionate” among them (to say nothing of suspected provocateurs) into storming the site as the pretext for what followed.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory, forwarded without a hint of evidence. The protesters forced themselves into the Congress with violence, disregarding calls to stand down.

There is no evidence that Capitol Police granted rioters access to the building or that they were “in on” the breach, as some posts claim. Footage that appeared to show some officers allowing rioters past barricades was misrepresented online. The journalist who shot the video said the officers backed off the barricade because they were “completely outnumbered.”

NATO prepares to attack Russia

The Alliance prepares to attack Russia.

NATO’s aggressive actions near Russia’s borders may indicate the alliance’s preparation for an attack.

Disproof

This is a recurring disinformation narrative about an alleged belligerent NATO, portraying the Alliance as a threat to peace.

NATO is a defensive alliance, whose purpose is to protect its member states. NATO is regularly updating the military requirements for civilian infrastructure, at a time when there are increased challenges to security.

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

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.
