Were Dr. Anthony Fauci and Loretta Lynch just executed in Gitmo by the US Navy Judge Advocate General?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Dr. Anthony Fauci & Loretta Lynch Were Just Executed In Gitmo!
People have been sharing a Real Raw News article claiming that Dr. Anthony Fauci and former US Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, was just executed in Gitmo – the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base!
The article is long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!
For reasons not given but easily imagined, the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps abruptly amended Anthony S. Fauci’s scheduled date of execution from April 26 to April 25 and on Monday morning fulfilled its obligation to execute not only him, but also GITMO’s other celebrity of the day, former Clinton advisor Loretta Lynch who was sentenced on 7 April.
Truth : Dr. Anthony Fauci & Loretta Lynch Were Not Executed!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by Real Raw News, to generate page views and money, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Real Raw News Is A Known Fake News Website
Real Raw News is a known FAKE NEWS website, that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.
To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.
This disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his article, lets him keep creating fake news that will go viral, and generate him money.
His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website.
Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of The Executions
There is no legitimate report of Dr. Fauci or Ms. Lynch getting arrested, much less flown to Gitmo and executed without trial.
Why on Earth should anyone trust this man, Michael Tuffin, when no one else has verified such a fantastical story?
Fact #3 : Dr. Fauci Appeared On PBS After His “Execution”
Real Raw News claimed that Dr. Anthony Fauci was executed on April 25, 2022.
However, Dr. Fauci “miraculously” appeared on PBS News Hour with Judy Woodruff two days after his “execution” – on April 27, 2022.
If you watch the video, you can see that he’s still very much alive! Dr. Fauci was certainly not executed.
Fact #4 : NIAID + Pentagon Called It False
Representatives for both the NIAID and the Pentagon confirmed that the claim that Dr. Fauci was “sentenced to hang” was false.
Fact #5 : US Military Has No Jurisdiction Over Civilians
It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that the US Navy executed Dr. Fauci and Ms. Lynch.
The Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C. § 1385) prohibits “the wilful use of any part of the Army or Air Force to execute the law unless expressly authorised by the Constitution or an act of Congress“.
If the US government wanted to arrest Dr. Fauci or Ms. Lynch, they would have sent the police with a warrant, not the Navy.
The United States Armed Forces certainly has no legal jurisdiction over both Dr. Fauci and Ms. Lynch, and cannot put them to trial. The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) does NOT apply to civilians.
The 18 offences punishable by death under the UCMJ clearly do not apply to civilians – Mutiny or sedition, misbehaviour before the enemy, subordinate compelling surrender, improper use of countersign, forcing a safeguard, aiding the enemy, espionage, improper hazarding of vessel, murder, rape, desertion, assaulting or wilfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer, acting as a spy, and misbehaviour of a lookout.
And the US Armed Forces cannot execute US civilians willy-nilly, even if they flew them to Gitmo, because the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base is still considered US territory!
Fact #6 : Capital Punishment By Federal Government Was Halted In 2021
Even if they committed truly serious crimes, both Dr. Fauci and Loretta Lynch would not have been executed so quickly.
Never mind the fact that there was apparently no trial, even if they were sentenced to be executed, they would first spend many years on death row, as the appeal process takes place.
More importantly, US Attorney General Merrick Garland halted all federal executions on 1 July 2021, pending review of changes made under the Trump administration.
There is literally NO WAY either one of them would have been executed on 25 April 2022, as Real Raw News alleged.
Fact #7 : Lethal Injection Is Official Execution Method For US Military
The US military stopped executing convicted prisoners by hanging in 1961, which was the last military execution to date.
Currently, the official approved method of execution for the US military is lethal injection, not hanging.
If Dr. Fauci and/or Loretta Lynch was somehow executed by the US military, it would have been by lethal injection, not hanging.
Everything that Real Raw News posts should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.
