Disinfo: Trump can win a second term only if he dares to oppose the CIA, Riyadh and Tel Aviv

Summary

The only way for Trump to lose the election is to get himself be misled in a major conflict. The pressure applied on him by the US intelligence community and the so-called “Middle Eastern allies” of the US starts to kick in. He may fall victim of a provocation or a false-flag event, even though he knows that he must avoid the actual shooting war in the Persian Gulf at all costs. Trump will be elected for a second term only if he dares to openly oppose the CIA, Tel-Aviv and Riyadh.

Disproof

A conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence, suggesting outside forces and the intelligence services decide the outcome of US elections. Similar claims can be found here.

The idea of "shadow rulers" is consistent with a recurrent narrative of the Elites vs. the People.

Boris Johnson always does whatever the US wants him to do

US president Trump always uses the hands-on approach, as he has recently travelled to Britain to oversea [sic!] the replacement of the lame duck Theresa May with the new favorite – Boris Johnson. The latter is a natural born showman all right, but the best part about him is that he does whatever the US wants him to do long before any whip needs to be cracked.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented without evidence, suggesting UK dependence of Washington. Similar cases can be found here.

The trope of "Lost Sovereignty" is a recurring narrative in pro-Kremlin disinformation.

NATO exploits non-existent “Russian threat” to increase its presence close to Russian borders

NATO is aware that Russia has no intention of attacking anyone, but it is exploiting rhetoric about a non-existent “Russian threat” in order to increase NATO’s presence close to Russia’s borders.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the “Russian threat” as a false idea created and spread by NATO and the US and NATO encircling Russia.

Since the Ukraine crisis, NATO has been genuinely concerned about the security challenges posed by Russia to Transatlantic security.

The JIT ignored evidence supplied by Russia in MH17 probe

The Joint Investigation Team has recently accused three Russian nationals of responsibility for the MH17 disaster, after years of ignoring hard facts and figures provided by Russian officials.

All the evidence supplied by Moscow, including military paperwork, radar readings, and field experiments, point to Russia’s non-involvement in the tragedy.

At the 19 June JIT press briefing, the Dutch prosecutor was forced to admit that Russia had, in fact, provided the investigators with information relating to the incident, proving that the BUK missile belonged to the Ukrainian Army and providing relevant radar data. However, the information was not taken into account.

Disproof

The report advances the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on the MH17 crash.

The evidence cited, namely radar data and the "field experiment" conducted by the Russian military company Almaz-Antey, is only a small sample of meaningless and contradictory claims advanced by Moscow since 2015, some of which have contradicted one another.
