Election rigging is longstanding US practice at the federal, state and local levels domestically.
Power brokers decide who wins and loses. Big money owns them.
Voting-age Americans have no say over who holds high-level and other key positions
November 2020 was Exhibit A. Trump was reelected. Yet Biden — represented by his double — replaced him.
The same thing applies abroad.
US dark forces repeatedly interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, including elections to assure installation of figures subservient to their interests.
From September 17 – 19, Russians will elect 450 lower house State Duma representatives to five-year terms.
At the same time, voters in nine Russian constituent entities will elect regional governors — 39 regions to elect regional parliaments.
According to Russia’s Foreign Ministry Special Envoy Gennady Askaldovich weeks earlier:
“Russia is ready to admit and ensure safe stay of the international observers.”
They’ll be “provide(d) with all necessary organizational, technical and legal conditions to carry out their tasks.”
“(I)nvitations (were) sent to several hundred international observers.”
“We are interested in (having) all international organizations, parliaments and foreign electoral agencies (that wish) to participate in” monitoring are safe and secure.
“(I)nternational observers (will be) provided with all necessary organizational, technical and legal conditions to carry out their tasks.”
“We are interested in all international organizations, parliaments and foreign electoral agencies (wishing) to participate (are able to carry) out a professional, objective and unbiased observation.”
Last month, Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe official Matteo Mecacci declined Russia’s invitation to send observers to monitor State Duma elections.
Defying reality, he falsely claimed it’s because the organization was allowed to send 60 representatives instead of 500 it sought.
The real reason was bowing to Biden regime pressure to stay away.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova accused the OSCE of inventing “a far-fetched pretext” to abstain from observing with intent to unjustifiably criticize the election process in a report to the European Parliament.
On Thursday, an EU statement called for “counterbalanc(ing) (nonexistent Sino/Russia) efforts to weaken democracy worldwide and destabilize the European order” — a bald-faced Big Lie.
According to Russia’s Central Election Commission, an estimated 250 foreign observers from 55 countries and 10 international organizations will monitor the three-day election process.
According to State Department spokesman Price’s Big Lie, numbers of OSCE monitors invited are too few for “independent observation (sic).”
He falsely accused Moscow of failing to hold free and fair election — what’s true about the US process and in other Western countries, not Russia.
Its democratic process shames US/Western fantasy versions — the real thing forbidden.
On Thursday, Zakharova warned of Biden regime interference in upcoming State Duma elections, saying:
“(T)he situation is unprecedented.”
“For several years, we have been hearing Washington, the US Department of State, and law enforcement agencies talk about Russia’s alleged interference in their electoral processes.”
“Every time, we asked for facts, there were no facts, no data, and no reports that they could have provided to us through the relevant channels.”
“We are currently engaged in preparations for our elections.”
“(E)arly voting is underway, and the main part of the voting process will begin (Friday).”
“(W)e are taking note of US interference.”
“We aren’t shouting it from the rooftops.”
“We aren’t turning it all into a PR campaign, and neither are we using the megaphone diplomacy tools that they used, which wasn’t about diplomacy but about ultimate fighting.”
“We summoned the US ambassador and provided him with the opportunity to see the facts concerning our suspicions, as well as specific complaints.”
“Since we know how US diplomacy works, which may be about getting some facts, making a different kind of a report and presenting it to the public in a completely different way, we reiterated the signal in Washington, too.”
“Our embassy in the US presented this information both to the US Department of State and the National Security Council.”
Evidence of US interference was given to Biden regime’s Russia envoy John Sullivan by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov.
“Irrefutable” evidence shows that US tech giants in cahoots with Biden regime dark forces interfered in Russia’s State Duma process ahead of Sept. 17 – 19 voting.
Zakharova warned that Moscow will “strongly respond (to) unacceptable” interference in its electoral process.
On Thursday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov slammed the European Parliament for failing to “establish dialogue” with Russia — for doing nothing “to (address differences) through communication at various levels and through various channel.”
Instead, it called for tougher policy on Russia in cahoots with hegemon USA.
Last May, Russia designated the US an “unfriendly” state — barring its embassy from employing its nationals.
