Disinfo: Trump executed a perfect special operation against faking election results

Summary

There is no doubt that President Donald Trump won the election by a large margin, but we will never know the real results due to the voting ballots “pulled back” by the election machines. Trump is playing the waiting game brilliantly to uncover the fraud by the Biden family. Arrests are being put in motion. “We” know which ballots were thrown out, where they are right now, who possesses them.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation about the unconfirmed election irregularities in the US.

The preliminary report of the ODIHR's election observation mission states that the "The 3 November general elections were competitive and well managed despite legal uncertainties and logistical challenges." The report notes that the election day was orderly and took place in a peaceful atmosphere. The body highlighted that in places where they observed the vote count, it was conducted "professionally, efficiently and openly," and the problems that arose with electronic poll-books or voting machines were addressed quickly. The report does note various issues with the electoral process, such as the "animosity and heated rhetoric" between the two main candidates, possible disenfranchisement of voters without a photo ID, and the inability of those in the District of Columbia or US territories to vote for president. However, the ODIHR does not suggest in any way that there was widespread electoral fraud.

Claims about problems with electric voting machines (e.g., attributing votes to dead people, software glitch causing Trump votes to be counted for Biden) were quickly debunked.

There is no evidence that President Trump launched a special operation to protect the elections. There is also no proof that widespread arrests have been made, are being made, or will be made because of suspicions of voter fraud. There is one available case from Hunterdon County, NJ. where an arrest was made for such charges, but this does not suggest that the phenomenon was widespread. It must also be emphasized that there is no information in this case of which candidate the accused tried to benefit with his alleged actions. The accused is also innocent until proven guilty.

Mass fraud in US elections: known cases of multiple voting are the tip of the iceberg

Trump is going, of course, to start lawsuits at the courts of the States and at the Supreme Court. All this amid the background of rigging and falsifications, which are no longer even hidden; giving the 300 thousand lost ballots, an abnormal increase in votes for Biden in Michigan, a ban on allowing Republican observers to pass to polling stations.

So, not being ashamed of television cameras at one of the polling stations, the ballots are thrown into the trash bin in batches. In Pennsylvania, a woman sends several ballots to a ballot box at once.

Bundles of ballots are found in the most unexpected places. How they got there is a big mystery. Perhaps this is part of the 300 thousand votes sent by mail that the most democratic post in the world – the American one – lost. Just in time.

The election turnout breaks records not only historically, but also mathematically – more than one hundred 102 percent in Florida and 101 in Wisconsin. In New York, at least two women, who died a few years ago, managed to vote. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Thousands of ballots were sent to those who moved or even died. In Los Angeles County, 277,606 ballots were mailed. Among them there are 4869 duplicate ballots sent twice to the same person. And 728 ballots sent to those most likely to have died.

Disproof

Unfounded claims of the pro-Kremlin media outlet. Reports that the US Postal Service had lost or failed to deliver hundreds of thousands of ballots began circulating online, are not true.

There is no evidence that hundreds of thousands of ballots went undelivered, CNN reports. While there were roughly 300,000 ballots that did not have delivery scans, that doesn't mean they weren't delivered. According to the USPS [US mail], the lack of delivery scans were a result of ballots that were picked out of the mail stream to speed up their processing.

NATO Secretary General encourages Joe Biden to clash with Russia

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg congratulates US president-elect Joe Biden and encourages him to clash with a stronger Russia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO threatening or encircling Russia.

The congratulatory message from NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to US president-elect Joe Biden is purposely misinterpreted, including with a misleading headline, to present the head of NATO as encouraging Biden to clash with Russia.

The Budapest Memorandum is only a political statement – no security guarantees for Ukraine

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is regularly talking about security guarantees provided to Ukraine by the Budapest Memorandum, but it is only a political statement that offers no security guarantees to Ukraine. It also confers no obligations on its signatories.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Russian narrative claiming that Russia did not violate the Budapest Memorandum.

The mentioned Budapest Memorandum is a diplomatic document that was signed in December 1994 by Ukraine, Russia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Under the memorandum, Ukraine promised to remove all Soviet-era nuclear weapons, which Ukraine received after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The arsenal Ukraine was left with was the third-largest nuclear arsenal in the world, including intercontinental ballistic missiles and strategic bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons. On 24 October 1991, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a statement on the country's nuclear-free status. Three years later, Ukraine actually joined the nuclear non-proliferation treaties. In exchange, the leaders of the United States, Russia and the United Kingdom signed the Budapest memorandum with guarantees of the integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.
