Disinfo: The United States is a failed state and is unable to control its own electoral process

Summary

The United States is a failed state. Why can’t the self-proclaimed superpower control its own electoral process? The combination of colour revolution, revolt, conspiracies of banks, and clashes between clans taking place in this country are good grounds for enabling the failed United States to keep going as a superpower. The US is not a normal and stable country but a group of madmen who pretend to be the state and to deal with state affairs.

While Biden’s campaign changes the rules in the middle of the game, Trump’s voters are armed and protect polls from theft, various media behave like advertisers or bidders, military ballots are found in the trash, various gangs, groups, NGOs are advocating for one candidate or another, and there are even dead in all this mess.

These days the so-called United States is in a much worse situation than Venezuela and Belarus, but the US hides itself behind a public image created by Hollywood in the first part of the 20th century and maintained by global media until today

How could any sovereign country, or anyone at all, ever listen again to any command, request, demand or threat from the new or old resident of the White House and from the establishment of this very deranged, quasi-state entity, formerly known as United States of America?

Disproof

This article contains two disinformation messages. One of these is the recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about an imminent state collapse or civil war in the United States. This message has been intensified by various pro-Kremlin outlets in the context of the recent racial justice protests in US.

The other message contained in the article is the emerging pro-Kremlin narrative seeking to delegitimise the conduct and results of the 2020 US Presidential elections.

The article provides no evidence to support its claims that the US (which it labels as the “former United States” and a “quasi-state entity”) is a failed or collapsing state.

Predictions about a US civil war or state collapse in the US have been a common pro-Kremlin narrative since the fall of the Soviet Union. One of the most popular theories was devised by Igor Panarin - a former Soviet KGB and Russian intelligence officer, a political science professor and author of influential studies on information warfare - who declared in 1998 that the United States would disintegrate into six nations around 2010.

Furthermore, there is no evidence to support the article’s suggestion that the November 2020 elections in the US are “out of control”, beset by fraud, violation of rules, and massive voting by dead people.

So far, no evidence of massive fraud has been presented except for rumours. Several reliable sources debunked the massive fraud claims : the BBC , The Guardian, the New York Times, Forbes, Le Monde.

In addition, in its interim assessment on the conduct of the election, the OSCE finds that the contest was "competitive and well managed" (p. 1), noting that "evidence-deficient claims about election fraud" (ibid.) have been refuted by "election officials at all levels" (p. 3) and "national security agencies" (p. 11).

Read previous cases claiming that massive fraud has taken place in the US 2020 presidential elections and that the election has been stolen and that civil war is imminent in radically-divided American society.

Biden may have known something in advance when he talked about using the army to remove Trump

Democrats and their allies are alarmed that the firing of top Pentagon officials by president Donald Trump may be preparation for a military coup. But was it actually the Democrats, and Joe Biden himself, who first brought up the idea of using the US Army to remove Trump from the White House, in case he lost but refused to concede. That was in June, much earlier than the election and the controversies surrounding it. What did Biden know at that moment to say that?

Disproof

The claim is a distortion of a statement uttered by then Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in June 11, 2020. Asked in an interview if he had considered what would happen if he came out as the winner of the election and president Donald Trump refused to leave, he replied that he was encouraged after seeing former and current U.S. military officials speak out against the President's support for using force against peaceful demonstrators. “I promise you, I'm absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch”, Biden said.

All this is mixed with Trump’s firing of several top Pentagon officials and framed in a way to make Biden’s comments suspicious of knowing “something in advance”. But Biden was referring to this scenario only after President Trump had repeatedly attacked the mail-in voting process and accused it, without evidence, of being fraudulent.

World Bank has set the deadline for the pandemic

In the official document of the World Bank, a deadline is set for the coronavirus pandemic. They know the exact date when the pandemic will die down.

Disproof

A recurring conspiracy theory on the coronavirus in an attempt to portray the current pandemic to be caused artificially and by the Western institutions.

The World Bank’s document referred to in the claim was created on April 2, 2020, as a first set of emergency support for developing countries around the world for coronavirus response. The World Bank’s document consists of strategies and a scheduled step-by-step plan that comprises projects that run until 2025 to deal with the damage caused by Covid-19. The expected closing date for all planned and scheduled projects was indicated to be 2025. The document does not state the date for the end of the pandemic.

Joe Biden self-proclaimed winner, aided by some hidden hands pulling the strings

Democrat Joe Biden has proclaimed himself the winner in the US election despite that the General Service Administration didn’t certify his victory. The European Union and several European presidents acted ahead of it and congratulated Biden. And it doesn’t matter, since a hidden hand is pulling the strings: at its order, on Saturday, November 7, the main US TV stations, CNN and NBC launched their projections that, in practice, became an ‘official announcement’ of Biden’s victory.

Disproof

Contrary to the claim, Joe Biden is not a self-proclaimed winner in the US election: he gave his victory speech after winning the state of Pennsylvania and therefore securing his victory, once it was clear that there was no chance that incumbent Donald Trump could achieve re-election even though the races in the states of Nevada, Arizona, Georgia and North Carolina weren’t closed yet. This is the reason why most US media called the election for Biden on Saturday, November 7, not due to the orders of any hidden hand. This was also the motive why international leaders started congratulating Biden.

Even in less sensitive elections, it is not uncommon that the General Service Administration takes a few days to certify the victory of a candidate, and only four days had passed between Biden’s victory and the publication of this disinformation piece. In this case, given the controversies at the place and the refusal of Donald Trump and some top Republican figures to concede, the certification may be delayed until the Electoral College meets and votes on the next presidency on December 14, 2020.
