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.

US Elections are clash of straight people and homosexuals

The 2020 Presidential elections in the United States are an ultimate battle between white, straight people, as well as homosexuals, transgenders and people of colour.

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin disinformation about the United States in the context of the 2020 presidential elections.

The article was aimed at discrediting now President-Elect Joe Biden by alleging that his presidency marks the end of white and straight people in the country, as well as at downgrading the Presidential race to an alleged culture war.

A media-Soros-neocon coup d'etat has taken place in the US

The recent presidential elections of the United States were essentially a coup d’etat. That demented democrat Biden could declare himself president-elect, is only possible through a coup of special sorts: a media-soros-neocon kind of coup.

Disproof

This is part of an ongoing pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign on the US election. See other examples in our database, such as claims that the result doesn’t matter because the real ruler is the Deep State; that the Guardian exposed how US Democrats exploited mail-in voting irregularities; that an oligarch-sponsored insurrection against the people will take place around election day; or that the US is on the verge of a civil war, and militias are only a reaction against government abuse.

It is also part of a recurring narrative which claims George Soros is manipulating elections. See for example: 1) Romania, 2) Czech Republic or 3) the US elections of 2016.

About two million of dead people voted for Biden

Voting by mail allows cheating. Dead souls that are among Biden’s supporters, understandably, always vote by mail. The number of dead people discovered during the voting is estimated at two million. 1.8 million, specifies the American conservative public organisation Judicial Watch and gives examples of electoral districts where there are more names on the voter lists than living citizens with the right to vote.

State voter lists are updated so infrequently that ballots are issued to those who have died a long time ago. And after all, dead people voted. Donna Brydges, born in 1901, is dead. But the system shows that the 119-year-old voter has made a choice. In Pennsylvania, 20,000 ballots were distributed to the dead people.

A collage is popular on the web: Biden in the cemetery says “thank you for voting”. While exploring the Michigan Electoral Commission website, American voters discovered the concept of “dead souls.” For example, William Bradley. He received the ballot, sent it, and his vote was counted. The man is born in 1902. How many more of these votes did Biden get? Searching another database reveals that William Bradley died back in 1984.

Disproof

The voter named William Bradley is alive and is 61 years old, fact check by USA Today shows. He has the same name and the same address, as his ancestor born in 1902, explains Meduza.

The claim of dead people's voting is misinformation, as explained by Michigan's Department of State: "Deceased voters' ballots are not counted. Ballots of voters who have died are rejected in Michigan, even if the voter cast an absentee ballot and then died before Election Day. On rare occasions, a ballot received for a living voter may be recorded in a way that makes it appear as if the voter is dead. This can be because of voters with similar names, where the ballot is accidentally recorded as voted by John Smith Sr when it was actually voted by John Smith Jr; or because of inaccurately recorded birth dates in the qualified voter file; for example, someone born in 1990 accidentally recorded as born in 1890. In such scenarios, no one ineligible has actually voted, and there is no impact on the outcome of the election. Local clerks can correct the issue when it is brought to their attention".
