Was Alvin Bragg Just Arrested For Committing Treason?!

Was New York County District Attorney Alvin Bragg just arrested for committing treason and election interference?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Alvin Bragg Was Just Arrested For Treason!

Real Raw News posted an article (archive) which claimed that the US Army Criminal Investigation Division just arrested New York County District Attorney Alvin Bragg for committing treason and election interference

As usual, the article is (intentionally?) long, rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Truth : Alvin Bragg Was Not Arrested For Any Reason!

The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Fact #1 : Alvin Bragg Was Not Arrested For Any Reason!

This is really silly, but it has to be said – New York County District Attorney Alvin Bragg has not been arrested for any reason.

If Alvin Bragg was ever arrested for any reason, it would have been reported across the United States, if not the world. However, there has been no legitimate media report of the US Army or any authority arresting the New York County AG!

Unsurprisingly, the Real Raw News article offered no evidence to back up its claim, just rambling nonsense.

Fact #1 : US Army CID Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is also silly for anyone to claim that the US Army Criminal Investigation Command (now known as the Department of the Army Criminal Investigation Division) has arrested Alvin Bragg.

The US Army CID is the law enforcement agency of the US Department of the Army, whose primary function is to investigate felony crimes and serious violations of military law, within the US Army. It has no jurisdiction outside of the US Army.

The United States is not a police state, or under martial law. In the US, criminals are arrested by the state police, or the FBI, depending on the nature of the crime committed. US military members would never be involved in such arrests.

Fact #3 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a 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“.

That disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news to go viral, and generate money.

Did ICC issue arrest warrants for Covid crimes against humanity?!

Did the International Criminal Court (ICC) issue arrest warrants for the global elites who committed crimes against humanity during the COVID-19 plandemic?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : ICC Issued Arrest Warrants For COVID Crimes Against Humanity!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the International Criminal Court (ICC), the European Union, and Capitol Hill, are issuing arrest warrants for global elites who tried to “depopulate the world during the Covid plandemic“!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

ICC Insider: Arrest Warrants Issued for Elites Who Committed ‘Crimes Against Humanity’

A consortium of world leaders are preparing the prosecution against the global authoritarian elite who tried to depopulate the world during the Covid plandemic.

Recommended : Did 13 Nations Sign WEF Agreement To Destroy Food Supply?!

 

Truth : ICC Did Not Issue Arrest Warrants For COVID Crimes Against Humanity!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : ICC Did Not Issue Arrest Warrants For COVID Crimes Against Humanity

First, let me just point out that the International Criminal Court (ICC) did not issue any arrest warrants for crimes against humanity that were allegedly committed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If the ICC really issued arrest warrants against anyone for crimes against humanity, it would have been reported all over the world. In fact, the ICC itself would have issued a public statement, like it did just 3 days ago, when it issued arrest warrants against the Russian Minister of Defence Sergei Shoigu, and the Russian Armed Forces Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov.

Needless to say, there was no ICC press release or reputable media report on arrest warrants being issued for crimes against humanity allegedly committed during the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s because it was all made up!

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : President Joe Biden Was Not Arrested

The cover image used in The People’s Voice article and video has a photo which purportedly shows US President Joe Biden being arrested by police officers.

That is a fake, AI-generated image. If you look closely, you can see Biden’s right hand is bizarrely dislocated from his arm. The police officers also have bizarre fingers (that disappear), as well as have bizarrely-placed face masks, or in one case – a face mask that disappears halfway!

Needless to say – President Joe Biden was not arrested for any reason.

Recommended : Is Klaus Schwab Facing Death Penalty By ICC?!

Fact #3 : International Criminal Court Post Is Fake!

The cover image used in The People’s Voice article and video has a screenshot which purportedly shows the International Criminal Court posting on X (formerly Twitter) that:

Elites behind depopulation agenda will face swift and severe justice.

That is a fake screenshot, because there is no such post on X by the International Criminal Court! If the ICC actually made such a shocking post, it would have been reported by the media across the world. But of course, that didn’t happen, because the ICC never posted it!

In addition, the actual ICC account on X has a grey checkmark, not a blue checkmark. Why would The People’s Voice article use a fake screenshot???

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Was Billionaire Frank Stronach Arrested For Child Rape?!

Was billionaire Frank Stronach just arrested on child rape charges?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Billionaire Frank Stronach Was Arrested For Child Rape!

Here is an excerpt of the article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Trudeau Mega Donor Arrested on Child Rape Charges

Frank Stronach, a billionaire with ties to Justin Trudeau and Canada’s Liberal Party, was arrested on Friday on a slew of child sex charges.

Recommended : Is Hillary Clinton Under Investigation For Child Sex Trafficking?!

 

Truth : Billionaire Frank Stronach Was Not Arrested For Child Rape!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Frank Stronach Was Not Arrested For Child Rape!

First, let me just point out that Frank Stronach was not arrested for child rape. He was arrested on 7 June 2024, and charged with rape and indecent assault on a female, as well as sexual assault and forcible confinement.

According to the Peel regional police, the sexual assaults spanned from the 1980s to as recent as 2023. However, there was no mention of Frank Stronach raping any child, or having sex with children.

In fact, The People’s Voice article linked to a Peel Regional Police report (archive) that clearly did not mention anything about child sex or child rape:

On June 7, 2024, Frank Stronach was arrested and charged with five criminal offences, rape, indecent assault on a female, sexual assault x2 and forcible confinement. He has been released on conditions and will appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton at a later date.

Police are appealing to members of the public to come forward if they have any relevant information.

The Peel Regional Police never said that Frank Stronach was arrested for child rape or child sex, so why would The People’s Voice claim otherwise???

Fact #2 : Frank Stronach Is Now An Austrian Politician

While The People’s Voice article tried to link Frank Stronach to Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party, the truth is – Frank Stronach is now an Austrian politician.

Stronach ran as the Liberal Party candidate in York – Simcoe in the 1998 Canadian federal election, but lost to John E. Cole. However, he left Canadian politics and went into Austrian politics in 2011. In September 2012, Frank Stronach launched a new Austrian political party called Team Stronach for Austria.

Will WHO countries arrest those who oppose bird flu vaccine?!

194 WHO Countries Agree to Arrest Citizens Who Oppose Bird Flu Vaccine – Media Blackout

194 World Health Organization (WHO) member states have agreed to begin arresting and prosecuting citizens who speak out against the Bird Flu vaccine, as part of tough new measures designed to stomp out so-called ‘misinformation’.

Recommended : Did WHO Order Worldwide Lockdowns Over Bird Flu?!

 

Truth : WHO Countries Are Not Arresting Those Who Oppose Bird Flu Vaccine!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : WHO Countries Are Not Arresting Those Who Oppose Bird Flu Vaccine

Let me start by pointing out that WHO member countries did not just agree to “begin arresting and prosecuting citizens who speak out against the bird flu vaccine“, as alleged by The People’s Voice.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that any country has begun arresting and prosecuting people who speak out against the bird flu vaccine!

In fact, other than making that claim in the title and the lede, the word “arrest” is not even mentioned in the rest of the article!

Fact #2 : WHO Pandemic Agreement Has Not Been Finalised

I should also point out that the WHO Pandemic Agreement has not been finalised. So it’s absurd to claim or suggest that WHO member countries are going to arrest people based on amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR).

Needless to say, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that WHO member countries have agreed to arrest and prosecute people based on amendments to the IHR.

Fact #3 : WHO Pandemic Treaty Does Not Affect Sovereignty!

If you download and read the zero draft, or any of the Pandemic Treaty’s draft agreements, you will realise that WHO Member States will continue to have the right to “determine and manage” their own healthcare initiatives, including how to tackle future pandemics!

In fact, the issue of sovereignty was addressed at least three times in the latest April 2024 draft:

… reaffirming the principle of sovereignty of States in addressing public health matters,

Recalling the sovereign right of States over their biological resources…

… the sovereign right of States to adopt, legislate and implement legislation, within their jurisdiction, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, the WHO Constitution and the principles of international law, and their sovereign rights over their biological resources;

Did WEF Order Govts To Arrest Climate Change Deniers?!

Did the WEF just order world governments to arrest people who oppose the climate change narrative?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Orders Govts To Arrest Climate Change Deniers!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that the WEF just ordered world governments to arrest people who oppose the climate change narrative!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

WEF Orders Govt’s To Arrest Citizens Who Oppose Man-Made Climate Change Narrative

The World Economic Forum has ordered government’s to begin arresting citizens who oppose the man-made climate change narrative in a bid to persuade the masses that ‘global boiling‘ is a real danger.

Recommended : Is the new CKM syndrome caused by vaccine spike protein?!

 

Truth : WEF Did Not Order Govts To Arrest Climate Change Deniers!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : WEF Did Not Order Governments To Arrest Anyone

Let me start by pointing out that the WEF (World Economic Forum) did not order anyone to arrest climate change deniers, or people who oppose the fact that human activities have caused global warming.

If the WEF actually did that – it would have shocked the whole world, not only reported widely by the mainstream media, but criticised by people and governments. Yet, there was no such outrage… because it never happened!

In addition – no government has ever arrested and/or jailed climate change deniers for refusing to accept the fact that human activities are causing climate change.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article offered no evidence to back up its claim that the WEF ordered governments to arrest people!

Fact #2 : WEF Cannot Order Governments To Do Anything

I should also point out that the WEF cannot order any country to do anything. It is merely an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that focuses on public-private sector collaboration.

The WEF has no power over world leaders, beyond its lobbying and influencing efforts. The WEF may be an influential lobbying organisation, but it cannot order any government to do anything. That’s just silly.

Recommended : Was Robert Fico shot for rejecting WHO Pandemic Treaty?!

Fact #3 : Jim Dale Does Not Work For WEF

The People’s Voice article suggests that Jim Dale represents the WEF in some capacity. However, that’s not true.

Jim Dale (LinkedIn profile) is an expert meteorologist, who founded the British Weather Services in 1987. He does not work for the World Economic Forum, not represent its views.

Jim Dale does not appear to be a WEF Young Global Leader either – he’s not in the alumni list. The link used by The People’s Voice as “evidence” only leads to a LinkedIn post in which he shared a WEF post about El Niño.

If that’s the criteria for being a WEF Young Global Leader, then everyone sharing a WEF post would automatically become a WEF Young Global Leader! How silly!

Did Trudeau Order Military To Arrest Conspiracy Theorists?!

Did Justin Trudeau just order the Canadian military to arrest conspiracy theorists to put in re-education camps?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Trudeau Orders Military To Arrest Conspiracy Theorists!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that Justin Trudeau ordered the Canadian military to round-up conspiracy theorists to put in re-education camps!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Trudeau Orders Military To Round Up ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ In Reeducation Camps

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has ordered the Canadian military to track and trace so-called “conspiracy theorists” who disapprove of his WEF-inspired agenda as the global elite’s war against dissenters goes into overdrive.

Recommended : Will Bill C-63 jail those who ever posted hate speech online?!

 

Truth : Trudeau Did Not Order Military To Round-Up Conspiracy Theorists!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Justin Trudeau Did Not Order Military To Round-Up Conspiracy Theorists!

Let me start by quickly pointing out that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did not order the Canadian military to arrest conspiracy theorists, to put into re-education camps.

If that actually occurred, it would have been widely reported all over the world. Yet no legitimate media outlet reported such a shocking development… because it never happened!

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice never actually provided any evidence Justin Trudeau ordered the military to arrest conspiracy theorists, much less stuff them into non-existent re-education camps!

Fact #2 : That Was Just A Heat Wave Exercise

The truth is – the Canadian Armed Forces conducted an extreme heat scenario exercise in Huron County, Ontario, from May 3-5, 2024.

According to Major Paul Pickering of the 31 Canadian Brigade Group, the exercise will simulate a realistic scenario that involves a 13-day heat wave, with a severe storm that causes power outages, damage to infrastructure and homes, as well as water shortages.

Recommended : Is Justin Trudeau Facing Child Rape Charges?!

In that exercise called Trillium Venture, the Huron County Ontario Provincial Police officers and soldiers from the 31 Canadian Brigade Group knocked on people’s doors to perform “wellness checks”. According to the Huron OPP press release:

Members of the public will see the deployment of Domestic Response Companies (DRCs) and Territorial Battalion Group (TBG) sustainment equipment, and vehicles to validate the ability to deploy and sustain in real time.

This is being done to create a more challenging, realistic training exercise, and will see soldiers conducting fire training, wellness checks, simulated search and rescue operations, cooling centre establishment, as well as other related activities.

No one was arrested, much less sent to re-education camps!

Yet again, The People’s Voice article failed to provide any evidence that the soldiers and police officers in exercise Trillium Venture actually arrested conspiracy theorists to put in re-education camps!

Fact #3 : Justin Trudeau Screenshot Is Fake

The cover image used by The People’s Voice article and video has a screenshot which purportedly shows the Justin Trudeau posting on X (formerly Twitter) that:

Hate speech terrorists have NO rights!

That is most definitely a fake screenshot, because there is no such post on X by Justin Trudeau.

If Justin Trudeau actually posted such a shocking tweet, it would have been reported by the worldwide media. But of course, that didn’t happen, because Justin Trudeau never posted it!

In addition, Justin Trudeau has a grey checkmark, not a blue one as seen in the fake tweet. This is yet another fake / edited screenshot created or posted by The People’s Voice!

Will Bill C-63 jail those who ever posted hate speech online?!

Will Bill C-63 give police the power to arrest people who posted hate speech, even if the offence occurred before the law existed?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bill C-63 Will Jail Those Who Ever Posted Hate Speech Online In The Past!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that the Trudeau government in Canada has introduced Bill C-63, which will give police the power to retroactively search the Internet for hate speech, and arrest people who posted hate speech, even if the offence occurred before the law existed!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Canada To Imprison Anyone Who Has EVER Posted ‘Hate Speech’ Online

The Trudeau regime has introduced an Orwellian new law called the Online Harms Bill C-63, which will give police the power to retroactively search the Internet for ‘hate speech’ violations and arrest offenders, even if the offence occurred before the law existed.

Recommended : Has Canada Begun Euthanising Vaccine-Injured Citizens?!

 

Truth : Bill C-63 Will Not Jail Those Who Posted Hate Speech Online In The Past!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Bill C-63 Is Enforced By Digital Safety Commission

The People’s Voice article claimed that Bill C-63 will give police the power to retroactively search the Internet for hate speech, and arrest offenders. That is not accurate.

Bill C-63 (read in full) – the Online Harms Act if enacted, will be enforced by the Digital Safety Commission of Canada, and supported by the Digital Safety Office of Canada – both of which will be established by the law.

This is stated clearly in the summary on the first page of Bill C-63. So why would anyone claim that Bill C-63 would empower the police to scour the Internet for hate speech, and arrest offenders???

Fact #2 : Hate Speech Is Already Punishable In Canada!

It is ludicrous to claim that Bill C-63 empowers the police to arrest and imprison people for posting hate speech, because hate speech is already punishable under the current Canadian Criminal Code!

Bill C-63 only amends the Criminal Code to define hatred as “the emotion that involves detestation or vilification” that is “stronger than disdain or dislike“.

In addition, it seeks to clarify that any statement that “discredits, humiliates, hurts or offends” would not be considered as promoting or inciting hatred. It also increases the penalties for hate speech.

In short – the proposed changes to the Canadian Criminal Code narrow the definition of hate speech, even while they increase its penalties.

Recommended : Is Justin Trudeau planning to BAN Christianity in Canada?!

Fact #3 : Bill C-63 Targets Continuous Hate Speech, Not Retrospective

There is no evidence that Bill C-63 is retrospective in nature. If you read the bill (here), you will see that it does not state that people should be punished for what they wrote before the bill becomes law.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article never provided any evidence that Bill C-63 allows the Canadian government to punish people for the online hate speech they posted in the past.

What Bill C-63 does though is target continuous hate speech, by adding a new Section 13 to the Canadian Human Rights Act:

Communication of hate speech

13 (1) It is a discriminatory practice to communicate or cause to be communicated hate speech by means of the Internet or any other means of telecommunication in a context in which the hate speech is likely to foment detestation or vilification of an individual or group of individuals on the basis of a prohibited ground of discrimination.

Continuous communication

(2) For the purposes of subsection (1), a person communicates or causes to be communicated hate speech so long as the hate speech remains public and the person can remove or block access to it.

In other words – if you posted online hate speech in the past, and continue to make it public, you will have infringed the Canadian Human Rights Act, after it’s amended by Bill C-63.

This isn’t retrospective in the sense the law cannot be used to punished hate speech you posted and deleted in the past. It can only be used to punish you if you posted hate speech, and continue to make it public.

Here is a simple solution for those who are worried about Bill C-63. If you receive an order to remove your past hate speech post, just delete it. It’s that simple.

I should also point out that this amendment only applies to the Canadian Human Rights Act, and does not affect the Canadian Criminal Code.

Recommended : Can Canada Social Credit System Freeze Bank Accounts?!

Fact #6 : Canadian Human Rights Act Only Allows For A Fine

The People’s Voice article claimed that Bill C-63 will give police the power to arrest people who post hate speech in the past. That is not accurate either.

For one thing – the Canadian Human Rights Act does not have a prison sentence. People who are convicted under this law is only liable for a fine not exceeding C$50,000.

Punishment

(2) A person who is guilty of an offence under subsection (1) is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding $50,000.

Bill C-63 does not amend this, so even if the amendments under the Online Harms Act become law, and you continue to make public any hate speech you posted in the past, you can’t be imprisoned under the Canadian Human Rights Act.

You can be imprisoned for hate speech under the Canadian Criminal Code, but this is currently the case even before Bill C-63 becomes law. Bill C-63 actually narrows the definition of hate speech, and arguably makes it harder to imprison someone for hate speech.

On top of that, there is no “Continuous communication” amendment to the Criminal Code, so it appears you cannot be punished for past hate speech that you continue to make public under the Criminal Code. You can only be fined for that under the Human Rights Act.

Fact #7 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Did Marines Just Arrest Oregon AG For Treason?!

Did US Marines just arrest Oregon AG Ellen Rosenbaum for treason?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Marines Just Arrested Oregon AG For Treason!

On 2 May 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) which claimed that US Marines just arrested Oregon AG Ellen Rosenbaum for treason!

As usual, the article is long, rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Marines Arrest Oregon AG for Treason

Recommended : Is Trump Using Oprah’s Money To Pay $355 Million Fine?!

 

Truth : Marines Did Not Arrest Oregon AG For Treason!

The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Fact #1 : Marines Did Not Arrest Oregon AG Ellen Rosenbaum!

No matter what you think of her, Ellen Rosenbaum is an elected official – the Attorney General of Oregon.

If Ellen Rosenbaum was ever arrested for any reason, it would have been reported across the United States, if not the world. However, there has been no legitimate media report of US Marines or any authority arresting the Oregon AG!

Unsurprisingly, the Real Raw News article offered no evidence to back up its claim, just rambling nonsense.

Fact #2 : US Marines Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that US Marines were sent to arrest civilians like Ellen Rosenbaum. In fact, US Marines cannot even arrest military personnel!

Civilians like the Oregon AG would have been taken into custody by the state police, or the FBI, depending on the nature of the crime committed. US military members would never be involved in such arrests.

Even if Ellen Rosenbaum was somehow a member of the US Marine Corps (she is not), she would have been arrested by US Marine Corps Military Police, not the marines themselves!

Truth : Delta Force Did Not Arrest WEF Chairman Klaus Schwab!

The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Fact #1 : Delta Force Did Not Arrest Klaus Schwab!

This is really silly, but it has to be said – US Delta Force soldiers did not arrest WEF Chairman Klaus Schwab!

If Klaus Schwab was actually arrested for any reason by any law enforcement authority, it would have been covered internationally, not just nationally, because it would be completely unprecedented!

Yet, there was no such news. That’s because it never happened – Klaus Schwab was never arrested for any reason.

Unsurprisingly, the Real Raw News article offered no evidence to back up its claim, just rambling nonsense.

Fact #2 : US Soldiers Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that Delta Force operators were sent to arrest Klaus Schwab in Switzerland – a civilian in a sovereign country, when US military personnel cannot even arrest civilians in the United States!

If the US government wants to arrest civilians like Klaus Schwab in Switzerland, it can only do so by issuing an Interpol Red Notice. Even then, it will be up to the Swiss police to decide whether to arrest and extradite Klaus Schwab.

There is simply no avenue for American law enforcement officers to arrest Klaus Schwab in Switzerland, much less military personnel!

Did JAG Arrest Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart?!

Did JAG just arrest Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart for striking Donald Trump from the state’s primary elections?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : JAG Arrested Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart!

On 1 April 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) which claimed that JAG arrested Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart for striking Donald Trump from the state’s primary elections!

As usual, the article is long, rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

JAG Arrests 4th Treasonous Colorado SCJ Melissa Hart

Recommended : Is Trump Using Oprah’s Money To Pay $355 Million Fine?!

 

Truth : JAG Did Not Arrest Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart!

The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Fact #1 : JAG Did Not Arrest Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart

This is really silly, but it has to be said – the Judge Advocate General did not arrest Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart.

In fact, no Colorado Supreme Court justice was arrested for voting to remove Donald Trump from the state ballots in the upcoming 2024 US Presidential elections.

When Real Raw News first claimed that US Marines arrested Colorado Supreme Court Justice Monica Marquez, Colorado Judicial Department spokesperson Rob McCallum said that “there is no legitimacy” to the claims.

Justice Márquez has not been arrested by the Marines, and is not in custody.

To be clear – no Colorado Supreme Court Justice, not even Justice Melissa Hart, was not arrested for any reason, by the JAG (Judge Advocate General), the US Marines, or any law enforcement officials.

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

Regardless of the reasons, it is really silly for anyone to claim that the JAG officers arrested all four Colorado Supreme Court justices.

The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians, even if they are American citizens. The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.

Only in rare exceptions are JAG officers allowed to prosecute civilians. For example, if the civilian committed a crime on a military base, or while working in a foreign country and the local laws allow it. They can also prosecute civilians with special authority from the President, or Congress.

Fact #3 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

In addition, JAG officers are not law enforcement officers. They are really military lawyers, and have no powers to arrest anyone – not even military personnel.

They can investigate crimes, defend or prosecute service members accused of those crimes. But JAG officers cannot actually arrest anyone. So it’s really silly for anyone to write stories about JAG officers arresting anyone. What a ridiculous fantasy!

Does Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) Ban Free Speech?!

Does the Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) ban free speech in Malaysia?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-04-02 : Updated after claim went viral again
Originally posted @ 2023-07-03

 

Claim : News Sharing Banned By POTA / Prevention of Terrorism Act

This warning about the Prevention of Terrorism Act / POTA keeps going viral in WhatsApp, and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Here is the original warning in Malay, and our English translation in bold):

No more sharing of news posting after this.

” AKTA POTA YANG TELAH DILULUSKAN MALAM TADI DI PARLIMEN…

Recommended : Warning – PDRM Parking Fine Scam Alert!

 

Truth : News Sharing NOT Banned By POTA / Prevention of Terrorism Act!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp, and social media platforms, and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : Prevention of Terrorism Act Was Passed In 2015

First, I should point out that this is really old fake news that started in April 2015, and keeps recirculating every few years.

The Prevention of Terrorism Act / POTA 2015 (Akta Pencegahan Keganasan 2015) was passed by the Malaysian government on 7 April 2015, and coincided with the arrest of seventeen suspected militants who were allegedly involved in a terror plot in Kuala Lumpur.

Fact #2 : POTA 2015 Targets Terrorism, Not Politics

POTA 2015 is not meant to target any healthy discussion of politics or political issues in Malaysia. Rather, it’s meant to tackle the threat of terrorism in Malaysia:

  1. To prevent the conduct or support for acts of violence involving terrorist organisation of a foreign country.
  2. To ensure that individual involved in terrorist activities do not escape legislative action.
  3. To ensure that Malaysia’s citizens and its security are not threatened by those involved in militant activities.

Fact #3 : POTA 2015 Does Not Ban Free Speech

POTA 2015 does not target people who share news on WhatsApp or social media, even if it’s of sensitive issues. It targets people who are engaged in acts of terrorism, not people who are spreading fake news or criticisms of the government.

Hence, POTA 2015 cannot be used to block people who from sharing this POTA 2015 fake news, which is why the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) had to ask people to stop sharing the fake news, instead of just locking them up!

Even then, people continue to share this fake news about POTA 2015 for the last 7 years on WhatsApp and social media…

Of course, if necessary, the police can use the long-existing Penal Code, and Sedition Act 1948 to prosecute people who share fake news, but that’s another story.

Fact #4 : PDRM Calls Viral Message Fake News

On June 11, 2015, the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) publicly posted a long debunking of this viral POTA 2015 warning, calling it “fake news”. Here is the English translation:

Did Russia Arrest Rustam Azhiev For Moscow Attack?!

Did Russia arrest a Ukrainian man called Rustam Azhiev for the Crocus City Hall attack in Moscow?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Russia Arrested Rustam Azhiev For Moscow Attack!

Some people are claiming that Russia just arrested a Ukrainian man called Rustam Azhiev for the Crocus City Hall attack in Moscow that killed at least 133 people.

Paul A. SzypulaUkraine citizen Rustam Azhiyev was just identified as a terrórist who took part in the massącre Friday of over 150 peaceful people in Moscow.

Were U.S. tax dollars used by Zelensky to facilitate this horrendous attack on innocent citizens of Russia?

Recommended : Was Ukrainian Plot To Assassinate Donald Trump Just Foiled?!

 

Truth : Russia Did Not Arrest Rustam Azhiev For Moscow Attack!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Rustam Azhiev Is Chechen Battalion Deputy Commander

Let me start by pointing out that Rustam Magomedovich Azhiev (born Мохмад ВоӀ Рустам / Moxmad Vo’ Rustam on 12 April 1981) is currently the deputy commander-in-chief of the Chechen battalion OBON, which is fighting on the Ukrainian side of the Ukraine War.

Azhiev was a former Chechen wrestler who started fighting against the Russian military in the Second Russo-Chechen War in 1999. He later fought against Russia in the Syrian civil war, as Abdul Hakim al-Shishani, the emir of the jihadist militant group, Ajnad al-Kavkaz (AK).

In 2022, Abdul Hakim al-Shishani and his AK militants joined the fight against the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Fact #2 : Russia Never Said He Was Rustam Azhiev

Without a doubt, Rustam Azhiev has been a thorn in the side of the Russian government for many years, and is thus, is well-known (infamous?) to them.

If Russia did indeed capture Rustam Azhiev, it would have been a major coup. The Russian government would have publicly announced it, and made a big fuss. Yet, it did nothing of the sort.

Even Margarita Simonovna Simonya, the editor-in-chief of RT – the Russian state broadcaster, only identified the man in the viral photo as the “mastermind” behind the Crocus City Hall attack. She never identified him as Rustam Azhiev.

The only people who are apparently making these claims are Western social media users who probably cannot tell the difference between a Chechen and a Syrian, never mind identify Rustam Azhiev in a line-up. Unsurprisingly, none of them actually provided any evidence that the man is Rustam Azhiev.

Recommended : Were Chinese Missiles Really Filled With Water?!

Fact #3 : The Captured Man Is Not Rustam Azhiev

While the man may look superficially like Rustam Azhiev, they are not the same man as the photo above shows. They have different cheek profiles, and their ears look different.

But the clearest indication is their hair partings. The man who was captured has hair parted on his left side. Rustam Azhiev’s hair is parted on his right side.

It cannot be determined from the photo, but the real Rustam Azhiev lost three fingers while fighting in the Second Russo-Chechen War in 2009. The Russian government would obviously know if this man is, or is not, Rustam Azhiev.

Fact #4 : Rustam Azhiev Was Never Associated With ISIS

Rustam Azhiev may hate Russia, but he has never been associated with ISIS. His jihadist militant group, Ajnad al-Kavkaz, was made up of fighters from the Caucasus Emirate, but operated autonomously.

In fact, AK’s support for the fight against Russia has less to do with its jihadist ideals, and more to do with fighting against Russia’s oppression, as one of its commanders explained:

Every enemy of Russia is a friend of ours. Also, the Ukrainian people are oppressed, and Islam commanded us to support the oppressed, let alone if the oppressor is a common enemy to us.

There is simply no evidence that Rustam Azhiev would subject himself to ISIS command, never mind actually take part in an ISIS operation.

Truth : US Marines Did Not Arrest Victoria Nuland + Husband!

This is really silly, but it has to be said – US Marines did not arrest Victoria Nuland and/or her husband, Robert Kagan. If Victoria Nuland and/or her husband were ever arrested for any reason, the news would have been reported by the mainstream media.

Yet, there was no such news. Not even right-wing conservative websites or pundits mentioned such a shocking event. That’s because – it never happened. Victoria Nuland and/or her husband were not arrested by the US Marines, or any law enforcement agency, for any reason.

Unsurprisingly, the Real Raw News article offered no evidence to back up its claim, just rambling nonsense.

Fact #2 : US Marines Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that US Marines were sent to arrest civilians like Victoria Nuland and her husband. In fact, US Marines cannot even arrest military personnel!

Even if either Victoria Nuland or her husband were somehow military personnel in the Marine Corps (they are not), they would have been arrested by US Marine Corps Military Police, not the marines themselves!

Fact #3 : Victoria Nuland Isn’t Retiring From Politics

Victoria Nuland isn’t retiring from politics, as claimed by the Real Raw News article, because she isn’t a politician. She is a diplomat who is currently serving as the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, under the US State Department.

On 5 March 2024, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced that Victoria Nuland intends to step down as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs.

The next day, the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs (CIPA) announced that Victoria Nuland will join its faculty as the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Professor in the Practice of International Diplomacy, starting 1 July 2024.

In short – Victoria Nuland’s retirement as Under Secretary of State was not a cover-up. She is relinquishing that role for a teaching position in Columbia CIPA.

Fact #1 : Young Global Leaders Is Separate NGO

Let me start by pointing out that The Forum of Young Global Leaders (YGL) is a separate, non-profit organisation run by the World Economic Forum (WEF), but under the supervision of the Swiss government.

Young Global Leaders must be younger than 38 years old at the time of acceptance, and highly accomplished in their fields. Once selected, they serve six-year terms.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and former New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern are former Young Global Leaders. In fact, they are not even listed in the YGL alumni network!

Fact #2 : No Evidence Arrest Warrants Were Issued For YGLs

Approximately 100 Young Global Leaders are selected each year, and there are currently over 1,400 YGL members and alumni members.

However, there is no evidence that arrest warrants were issued against current or former Young Global Leaders for “crimes against humanity”.

If even a single arrest warrant was issued against any Young Global Leader for “crimes against humanity”, it would have gone viral, and reported globally.

Yet, there was no coverage by the mainstream media, and no social media outrage? Heck, even right-wing websites did not so much as squeak about arrest warrants being issued for Young Global Leaders???

That’s because that never happened. The People’s Voice article, unsurprisingly, offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #3 : Hussain Najadi Was Not WEF Co-Founder

Pascal Najadi often claims that his father – Hussain Najadi, was a co-founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), together with Klaus Schwab.

However, Hussain Najadi has never claimed to be a co-founder of the WEF. In fact, his own autobiography – The Sea and the Hills, only stated that he had been “invited [by Schwab] to attend the Davos Economic Symposium“.

Fact #4 : Justin Trudeau Screenshot Is Fake

The cover image used by The People’s Voice article and video features a screenshot which purportedly shows the Justin Trudeau posting on X (formerly Twitter) that:

Independent media is the enemy – mass censorship is our weapon!

That is most definitely a fake screenshot, because there was no such post on X (formerly Twitter) by Justin Trudeau. On top of that, Justin Trudeau’s Twitter account has a grey checkmark, not a blue checkmark.

And it’s a really silly creation too – why would Justin Trudeau publicly reveal his evil, dastardly plans to take over the world like Pinky and the Brain???

Unfortunately, we will never know because The People’s Voice article never explained WHY, or provided any evidence that such a post ever existed!

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Were 45 Pedophiles Planning To Eat Children Just Arrested?!

Were 45 pedophiles who planned to eat children just arrested on an array of child sex charges?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : 45 Pedophiles Planning To Eat Children Were Just Arrested!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that 45 pedophiles who planned to eat children were just arrested on an array of child sex charges!

45 Pedophiles Who Planned To Eat Children Arrested on Sickening Array of Child Sex Charges

Recommended : Was King Charles Just Exposed For Raping Children?!

 

Truth : 45 Pedophiles Planning To Eat Children Were Not Arrested!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Arrests Occurred In 2018

Let me start by pointing out that the news report is genuine, but the arrests did not occur recently. Rather, they occurred as part of Operation Millstone between January 31 and February 16, 2018.

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office announced the results of Operation Millstone on Thursday, 1 March 2018. The video appears to be recorded on that day, or around that time.

Why would anyone dig up this old video and story, without providing any context that this occurred almost 6 years ago?!

Fact #2 : Operation Millstone Only Arrested 14 Predators

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that 45 pedophiles were arrested in Greenville County. That’s not true.

According to the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, it only arrested “14 predators” under Operation Millstone (sourcearchive).

Fact #3 : Operation Millstone Did Not Only Target Pedophiles

It is possible that the video was cut short, because it lacks context about Operation Millstone. Critically, Operation Millstone did not just target child predators, even though that was the “flashiest” part of the operation and thus, figured prominently in the press conference.

The truth is – Operation Millstone also targeted prostitution and “potential human trafficking activity“. In fact, it arrested far more prostitutes and their clients than child predators!

Other than the “14 predators” mentioned above, Operation Millstone arrested 2 human traffickers, 10 prostitutes, and 17 johns (customers of those prostitutes). Two others not mentioned in the list, were actually arrested and charged with drug crimes.

So if we really want to be accurate, two persons were arrested for drug crimes, while 43 people were arrested for sex crimes, of which only 14 were child predators. Here is the full list (source) of those charged in Operation Millstone, and their charges:

Anatoliy G. Parchuk, of Gaffney, is charged with prostitution.

Fact #4 : Only One Man Expressed Passions For Cannibalism And Bestiality

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that “45 pedophiles who planned to eat children” were arrested in Greenville. That’s not true either.

Only one man – Justin Teeter Bensing, who was 36 years when he was arrested in Operation Millstone, expressed his “passions for cannibalism and bestiality“. According to Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis (source), Bensing said he wanted to “cannibalise” a child after turning her into a “full time baby maker and sex slave”, and he intended to make his victim drink her own urine.

Justin Teeter Bensing was arrested on 14 February, and released from jail two days later, with a $20,000 bond. Despite the shocking claims in his arrest warrant, he only faced two charges of “criminal solicitation of a minor”. He pleaded guilty to both charges.

In the end, Justin Teeter Bensing was sentenced to 10 years in prison, with that time suspended to five years’ probation. Bensing’s attorney – James Brehm, told The Greenville News that his client was only joking about the cannibalism.

That didn’t have anything to do with this. It was just like you and I talking trash and texting and six months later, someone gets a hold of your phone and tie it to what he’s charged with.

Bensing’s father previously told The Associated Press that “any charges of cannibalism are not correct.”

Fact #5 : Most Of Them Were Not Pedophiles

I should point out that pedophilia is defined as sexual attraction to prepubescent children, which typically excludes teenagers. Even the looser psychiatric diagnostic criteria only extends that definition to 13 years of age.

As such, many of those who were charged with criminal solicitation of a minor do not appear to meet that definition. Even Justin Teeter Bensing was found to have attempted to meet a 14 year-old girl (who was really a law enforcement officer). The fake girl is a minor, of course, but he would not meet even the looser psychiatric definition of a pedophile.

Out of the list, it appears that only 7 people were charged with attempted criminal sexual conduct with a minor victim 11 to 14 years of age, and could possibly be considered as pedophiles.

Is Canada Going To Arrest Citizens Who Promote Fossil Fuels?!

Did the Canadian government announce plans to arrest citizens who promote fossil fuels?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Canada To Begin Arresting Citizens Who Promote Fossil Fuels!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the Canadian government just announced plans to arrest citizens who promote fossil fuels!

Canada To Begin Arresting Citizens Who Promote Fossil Fuels

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Bill Gates For Murder?!

 

Truth : Canada Is Not Arresting Citizens Who Promote Fossil Fuels!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Canada Is Not Arresting Citizens Who Promote Fossil Fuels

Let me start by simply pointing out that the Canadian government did not announce any plans to arrest, imprison, or fine citizens who promote fossil fuels.

There is no such announcement, or law that was recently passed that would give rise to such a claim, and The People’s Voice article offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : C-372 Was A Private Parliament Member’s Bill

The People’s Voice article referred to Bill C-372 (An Act respecting fossil fuel advertising), which is a private member’s bill introduced by Charlie Angus, a Member of Parliament from the New Democratic Party (NDP).

A private member’s bill (projet de loi émanant d’un député) is introduced by a legislator who is not acting on behalf of the executive branch. In other words – this bill was not being introduced by the Canadian government, as suggested or claimed in The People’s Voice article.

Fact #3 : C-372 Has Not Been Passed

In Canada, any member of parliament can submit a private member’s bill like C-372, but most of these bills are not even voted on, much less passed. In fact, the vast majority of private bills that do become law, were passed for the purpose of changing the name of the riding (jurisdiction) represented by the MP introducing the bill.

More importantly – C-372 remains a bill, which is a proposed law. It has not been passed, so it is wrong for anyone to claim that the Canadian government plans to “imprison and fine citizens” who “promote fossil fuels”, as claimed by The People’s Voice article.

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Planning To Kill Billions Using Turbo AIDS?!

Fact #4 : C-372 Does Not Criminalise Free Speech

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that the C-372 bill will “criminalise any speech that promotes fossil fuels – even the statements being made are true and accurate“.

It’s actually stated in the Application section of the C-372 bill (which you can read here), that the Act would not apply to:

5 This Act does not apply in respect of:

(a) a literary, dramatic, musical, cinematographic, scientific, educational or artistic work, production or performance that uses or depicts fossil fuels, fossil fuel-related brand elements or the production of fossil fuels, whatever the mode or form of its expression, if no consideration is given, directly or indirectly, by a producer, a retailer or an entity that has as one of its purposes to promote fossil fuels for that use or depiction in the work, production or performance;

(b) an opinion, commentary or report in respect of fossil fuels, fossil fuel-related brand elements or the production of fossil fuels if no consideration is given, directly or indirectly, by a producer, a retailer or an entity that has as one of its purposes to promote fossil fuels for the reference to the fossil fuels, fossil fuel-related brand elements or the production of fossil fuels in that opinion, commentary or report; or

(c) the name of an entity or the name under which the entity carries on business.

In other words, even if it is passed and becomes law, the C-372 bill will not criminalise free speech, including making statements that are true and accurate about fossil fuels.

Fact #5 : C-372 Was Not Introduced By Justin Trudeau

The People’s Voice article used a photo of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as its cover image. Just in case there is any confusion – Justin Trudeau did not introduce C-372, nor did he express any support for that private bill.

Here is a photo of Charlie Angus, who obviously looks very different from Justin Trudeau. They are also from completely different political parties. Charlie Angus is from the New Democratic Party, while Justin Trudeau leads the Liberal Party of Canada.

Why would anyone use a photo of Justin Trudeau as a cover image for an article about a private bill introduced by a completely different Member of Parliament???

Are Soldiers Now Making Arrests Across The United States?!

Have over a million soldiers been deployed to make arrests across the United States?!

Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Soldiers Are Making Arrests Across The United States!

People are sharing a video on X (formerly Twitter), which appears to show soldiers marching, together with claims that over a million of them are now making arrests across the United States!

GhostEzra : OVER 1 MILLION MILITARY ARE NOW ACROSS THE UNITED STATES TO MAKE ARRESTS

Recommended : Are Marines + Army Rangers Being Sent To Texas Border?!

 

Truth : Soldiers Are Not Making Arrests Across The United States!

This is yet another example of fake news circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Viral Video Is From January 2021

Let me start by pointing out that the viral video isn’t new. It was actually recorded and posted by CNN’s Manu Raju on 19 January 2021 – more than 3 years ago!

Anyone who claims that this shows a current event in February 2024 is lying to you.

Fact #2 : Soldiers Were Marching To Protect Biden Inauguration

The viral video does not show American soldiers marching to arrest anyone. It actually shows National Guard troops marching into Washington D.C. to protect the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

The troops were deployed in unprecedented numbers to safeguard the capital after the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol just days earlier, on January 6, 2021.

Manu Raju posted the video on both his Instagram and Twitter accounts, with the following descriptions:

Fact #3 : US Only Has 1.4 Million Active Military Personnel

As per Statista, the United States has the world’s third largest army with about 1.4 million active military personnel, as of 2022. However, that is made up of the many military branches in the United States:

  • Army Active Duty : 461,657
  • Navy Active Duty : 340,065
  • Army National Guard : 329,705
  • Air Force Active Duty : 320,421
  • Army Reserve : 176,171
  • Marine Corps Active Duty : 174,577
  • Air National Guard : 104,984
  • Air Force Reserve : 68,048
  • Navy Reserve : 55,224
  • Marine Corps Reserve : 32,599
  • Space Force Active Duty : 8,000

The US Army alone does not have 1 million soldiers, even if it brought in its entire reserves, as well as the National Guard. So it is literally impossible for “over a million” soldiers to be deployed to make arrests across the United States.

That number available for the US Army to deploy within the United States is far below 1 million, because approximately 171,000 troops are deployed overseas!

Even the approximately 800,000 US Army active, reserve and National Guard troops available in the United States cannot all be deployed, because a significant number has to be retained to man its many bases, and provide logistical or technical support.

Fact #5 : US Military Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that the US military personnel were sent to arrest civilians all across the United States. For what crime? For what purpose? None of that was explained, but yet, many people believed it is true.

All that is utter nonsense, because the United States is not a police state, or under martial law. In the US, criminals are arrested by the state police, or the FBI, depending on the nature of the crime committed. US military members would never be involved in such arrests.

If he was really arrested, it would have been reported globally by the mainstream media, not just by a known fake news website. Yet, no legitimate media outlet reported such an amazing story?

That’s because it never happened. It was all made up.

Fact #3 : Jake Tapper Didn’t Interview John Kelly In January 2024

A quick check of Jake Tapper’s X feed (formerly Twitter) showed that he never interviewed John Kelly through the whole of January 2024.

The last time John F. Kelly said anything publicly appears to be in October 2023, when he released a statement confirming much of the 2020 reporting by Jeffrey Goldberg that Donald Trump expressed disdain for veterans and the war dead.

Fact #4 : US Marines Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that US Marines were sent to arrest a civilian. John F. Kelly was once a US Marine Corps general, but he retired in 2016, and has been a civilian since then.

Even if John Kelly was still a serving member of the military, he would not have been arrested by his own Marines, because US Marines are not even empowered to arrest military personnel! He would have been arrested by US Navy Master-at-Arms and/or the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS), not the marines themselves.

Civilians like former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly would have been taken into custody by the state police, or the FBI, depending on the nature of the crime committed. US military members would never be involved in such arrests.

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that the JAG officers arrested almost 100 civilians working for American media outlets like MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNBC, the BBC, Vice News, etc.

The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians, even if they are American citizens.

The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.

Only in rare exceptions are JAG officers allowed to prosecute civilians. For example, if the civilian committed a crime on a military base, or while working in a foreign country and the local laws allow it. They can also prosecute civilians with special authority from the President, or Congress.

Fact #3 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

In addition, JAG officers are not law enforcement officers. They are really military lawyers, and have no powers to arrest anyone – not even military personnel.

They can investigate crimes, defend or prosecute service members accused of those crimes. But JAG officers cannot actually arrest anyone.

So it’s really silly for anyone to write stories about JAG officers arresting anyone. What a fantasy!

Was Oprah Just Exposed In Jeffrey Epstein Client List?!

Was Oprah Winfrey just exposed in the Jeffrey Epstein list, as one of his clients?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Oprah Winfrey Just Exposed As Jeffrey Epstein Client!

People are claiming on social media that Oprah Winfrey was just exposed in the Jeffrey Epstein list, as one of his clients. At least one person even claimed that she was arrested as a result!

Donald J. Trump 🇺🇸 News : 🚨JUST IN: Oprah Winfrey has been revealed as a client on The Epstein List.

Recommended : Was Oprah Winfrey Just Arrested + Jailed In Gitmo?!

 

Truth : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested Or Exposed As Epstein Client!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on social media platforms like Facebook and X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Jeffrey Epstein List Is All-Encompassing

First, I should point out that the so-called “Jeffrey Epstein list” that was released as by New York judge Loretta A. Preska, is not is a list of his clients, or people who were somehow complicit in his crimes.

The list of names that is set to be released soon comprises of everyone involved or named in the defamation lawsuit by Virginia Giuffre against Ghislaine Maxwell – Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend and convicted accomplice. For example:

  • People who were accused of wrongdoing
  • People making those accusations of wrongdoing
  • Victims of Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, and/or their associates,
  • Potential witnesses to those crimes, or witnesses called by the defense
  • Employees of Jeffrey Epstein or Ghislaine Maxwell
  • People who visited Jeffrey Epstein’s home or island
  • People who flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane

In other words – this Jeffrey Epstein list is not his “black book” of people who took part in his crimes, or abetted them. It comprises of people who was once associated with Jeffrey Epstein or Ghislaine Maxwell, including victims and witnesses.

Fact #2 : Epstein Is Not Weinstein

I should also point out that Jeffrey Epstein is not Harvey Weinstein. Their surnames may rhyme, but they are not related, and are completely different men.

Yet, people who posted about Oprah Winfrey being “exposed” in the Jeffrey Epstein List as a client, bizarrely used this photo of Oprah and Harvey Weinstein.

Did they confuse the two men because they had similar-sounding surnames? Or did they use the Oprah-Weinstein photo because they couldn’t find any Oprah-Epstein photo?

Recommended : Jeffrey Epstein List : Watch Out For Fake Lists!

Fact #3 : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested

This is really silly, but it has to be said – Oprah Winfrey was not arrested after being “exposed” in the Jeffrey Epstein List.

Oprah Winfrey is a mega celebrity, and one of the richest women in the world, with a net worth of $3.5 billion as of May 2023. If she was ever arrested, it would have been international news.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, not even celebrity blogs, have reported that Oprah Winfrey was in any legal trouble, never mind arrested!

On top of that, Oprah posted a video on Instagram on Monday, 15 January 2024, in which she thanked Dolce & Gabbana for the purple dress she wore to the 29th Critics’ Choice Awards the day earlier.

Needless to say – she was seen in public, with the other cast members of The Color Purple, at the Critics’ Choice Award on Sunday, January 14 2024!

Fact #4 : Oprah Was Only Mentioned Incidentally

In the court documents released by Judge Preska, Oprah’s name came up five times. However, she was never mentioned as a witness, a victim, or a potential accomplice. In fact, her name only came up incidentally!

Exhibit 1 : Oprah’s name appeared in the screenshot of a Daily Mail article (in a separate suggested article called Oprah sells Gustav Klimt painting for whopping $150million to private buyer in China…).

Exhibit 8 : Oprah’s name appeared in the screenshot of a Radar Online article (in a separate suggested article called Oprah Surprisingly Says Goodbye To Her Neighbor Ellen Degeneres).

In the remaining three mentions (here, here and here), Oprah was referenced in a single email between Sharon Churcher and a book agent, as a description of the “market” Virginia Giuffre’s book would appeal to:

Hi Jarred

Hopefully you have Virginia’ s book pitch by now.

She has some amazing names which she can share with you in confidence and I think she also has a human interest story that could appeal to the Oprah/female set as well as the Wall Streeters who follow Epstein — a hedge fund king.

In short – Oprah was quite irrelevant in the Giuffre vs. Maxwell case. Her name appeared incidentally in some documents, but she was never mentioned as an individual of interest.

Did WHO Unveil Global Police Force With Arrest Powers?!

Did the WHO (World Health Organization) just unveil its Global Police Force with the power to arrest people?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WHO Unveils Global Police Force With Arrest Powers!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), claiming that the WHO (World Health Organization) just unveiled its Global Police Force at the 2024 World Economic Forum in Davos.

Ostensibly, this WHO Global Police Force has the power to arrest people who spread “non-mainstream content” on the Internet!

WHO Unveils ‘Global Police Force’ To Arrest Citizens Who Post Independent Media Online

Recommended : Did WEF Order Arrests Of Climate Change Deniers?!

 

Truth : WHO Did Not Unveil Any Global Police Force!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : WHO Did Not Unveil Any Global Police Force

First, let me just point out that the WHO (World Health Organization) did not unveil any Global Police Force, whether at the 2024 World Economic Forum, or elsewhere.

If such a police force was actually established, it would have been reported by mainstream media all over the world. There was no such coverage because it never happened. The People’s Voice article certainly offered no evidence of such a WHO Global Police Force.

In fact, if such a global Internet police force was established, the creators behind fake news websites would have been arrested. The fact that The People’s Voice can freely post such fake news is evidence that such a police force does not exist.

Fact #2 : Pandemic Treaty Was Initiated By WHO Member States

It is also important to point out that the Pandemic Treaty was not initiated by the World Health Organization itself, but rather its member states.

The International Health Regulations (IHR) were first adopted by member states in 1969, empowering the WHO to monitor global diseases. Those regulations have since been revised over the years, including in 2005 – after the SARS outbreak.

On 1 December 2021, world leaders agreed to kickstart the process to draft and negotiate an agreement or convention to “strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response“.

Recommended : Is Biden Admin signing over US sovereignty to WHO?!

Fact #3 : Pandemic Treaty Does Not Outlaw Free Speech

If you read the zero draft of the proposed Pandemic Treaty, you will realise that the WHO is not planning to control the Internet, or outlaw free speech. This is explicitly stated in Article 17, which refers to “Parties” that are the member states.

The Parties commit to increase science, public health and pandemic literacy in the population, as well as access to information on pandemics and their effects, and tackle false, misleading, misinformation or disinformation, including through promotion of international cooperation.

As you can see, under the agreement, each individual country will commit to increase knowledge about science and public health, as well as combat “false, misleading, misinformation or disinformation”.

Not only does the article clearly state that it is up to each country (not the WHO) to implement its policies, it does not mention anything about controlling the Internet.

The only people who need to worry about Article 17 of this proposed WHO agreement are those who peddle “false, misleading, misinformation or disinformation”.

Fact #4 : Pandemic Treaty May Not Be Binding

If you download and read the zero draft, you will realise that the WHO is still calling it a “convention, agreement, or other international instruments“, clearly showing that member countries have not decided whether they want it to be binding or otherwise.

In the third point noted on the very first page of the draft, it was even pointed out that this is just a draft that is being used for “commencing negotiations“, and that “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed“.

The INB (Intergovernmental Negotiating Body) further agreed that the zero draft would be considered at its fourth meeting as a basis for commencing negotiations at that meeting, it being understood that the zero draft will be without prejudice to the position of any delegation and following the principle that “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed”.

While some countries like the European Union, Britain, Indonesia and Kenya would prefer a legally-binding Pandemic Treaty, other countries like the United States, India and Brazil oppose a legally-binding agreement.

So it is ludicrous to claim that the Pandemic Treaty will be legally binding. No such decision has been made.

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:

Was Oprah Winfrey Just Arrested + Jailed In Gitmo?!

Was Oprah Winfrey just arrested for treason, and jailed in Guantanamo Bay?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Oprah Winfrey Was Just Arrested + Jailed In Gitmo!

On 14 January 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that Oprah Winfrey was just arrested for treason and a wide range of crimes, and jailed in Guantanamo Bay!

As usual, the article is long, rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Oprah Winfrey Goes to GITMO

Recommended : Supreme Court Justice Arrested For Voting Against Trump?!

 

Truth : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested Or Jailed In Gitmo!

The truth is – this is just another FAKE STORY created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Everything posted by Real Raw News must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Fact #1 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a 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 articles, lets him keep creating fake news to go viral, and generate money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I debunked earlier:

Fact #2 : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested / Jailed

This is really silly, but it has to be said – Oprah Winfrey was not arrested or jailed for any reason.

Oprah Winfrey is a mega celebrity, and one of the richest women in the world, with a net worth of $3.5 billion as of May 2023. If she was ever arrested, it would have been international news.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, not even celebrity blogs, have reported that Oprah Winfrey was in any legal trouble, never mind arrested and jailed!

On top of that, Oprah posted a video on Instagram on Monday, 15 January 2024, in which she thanked Dolce & Gabbana for the purple dress she wore to the 29th Critics’ Choice Awards the day earlier.

Needless to say – she was seen in public, with the other cast members of The Color Purple, at the Critics’ Choice Award on Sunday, January 14 2024!

Fact #3 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that JAG investigators arrested Oprah Winfrey is absurd. The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Oprah Winfrey.

The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.

Only in rare exceptions are JAG officers allowed to prosecute civilians. For example, if the civilian committed a crime on a military base, or while working in a foreign country and the local laws allow it. They can also prosecute civilians with special authority from the President, or Congress.

Fact #4 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

JAG officers are not law enforcement officers. They are really military lawyers, and have no powers to arrest anyone – not even military personnel.

They can investigate crimes, defend or prosecute service members accused of those crimes. But JAG officers cannot actually arrest anyone.

This is really silly, but it has to be said – no Colorado Supreme Court justice was arrested for voting to remove Donald Trump from the state ballots in the upcoming 2024 US Presidential elections.

Colorado Judicial Department spokesperson Rob McCallum said that “there is no legitimacy” to the claims made in the article by Real Raw News.

Justice Márquez has not been arrested by the Marines, and is not in custody.

Just to be clear – Colorado Supreme Court Justice Monica M. Marquez was not arrested for any reason, by the US Marines or any law enforcement officials.

Recommended : Did Australia Approve Mandatory Bill Gates mRNA Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : US Marines Cannot Arrest Civilians

The claim that US Marines were sent to arrest a civilian is absurd. For one thing, the military justice system is separate from the civilian justice system. The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Colorado Supreme Court Justice Monica Marquez.

JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members. Only in rare exceptions are JAG officers allowed to prosecute civilians. For example, if the civilian committed a crime on a military base, or while working in a foreign country and the local laws allow it. They can also prosecute civilians with special authority from the President, or Congress.

On top of that – US Marines are not empowered to arrest even military personnel! If Justice Monica Marquez was hypothetically a serving member of the US Navy, she would have been arrested by US Navy Master-at-Arms and/or the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS), not the marines themselves.

If any civilian like Colorado Supreme Court Justice Monica Marquez is to be arrested, she would have been taken into custody by the Colorado state police, or the FBI, depending on the nature of the crime committed. US military members would never be involved in such arrests.

Fact #2 : Stephen Colbert Is Recovering From Surgery

It is impossible for Stephen Colbert to be arrested on Monday, 27 November 2023, outside of his home because he was recovering from emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix.

He could not have been arrested while preparing to go for a run in a blue jogging suit, while wearing $60,000 Bulgari Flora sunglasses.

He would end up cancelling two weeks of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” as he continues to recover from his surgery.

Fact #3 : Stephen Colbert Is Still Active On Social Media

Stephen Colbert actually posted on Instagram about his surgery for a ruptured appendix on Tuesday, 28 November 2023:

Sorry to say that I have to cancel our shows this week. I’m sure you’re thinking, “Turkey overdose, Steve? Gravy boat capsize?” Actually, I’m recovering from surgery for a ruptured appendix. I’m grateful to my doctors for their care and to Evie and the kids for putting up with me. Going forward, all emails to my appendix will be handled by my pancreas.

Is Bill Gates Facing Life Behind Bars For Child Rape?!

Is Bill Gates facing life behind bars after investigators reveal that the billionaire is about to be prosecuted for child rape?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bill Gates Is Facing Life Behind Bars For Child Rape!

People are sharing an article by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), suggesting or claiming that Bill Gates is facing life behind bars after investigators reveal that the billionaire is about to be prosecuted for child rape!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is absurdly long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Bill Gates Facing Life Behind Bars on Child Rape Charges

Bill Gates has already lost his marriage due his friendship with the convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, but he is about to lose a whole lot more, according to investigators who revealed the globalist billionaire is about to be thrown under the bus and prosecuted on child rape charges.

Recommended : Bill Gates Was Just Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity?!

 

Truth : Bill Gates Is Not Facing Life Behind Bars For Child Rape!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The People’s Voice Provided No Evidence

The introduction to The People’s Voice article claimed that “investigators” revealed that Bill Gates is about to be “prosecuted on child rape charges“.

But if you actually read the long, rambling article, you will realise that it actually does not provide any evidence that any law enforcement official has actually revealed that Bill Gates is going to be “prosecuted on child rape charges“.

In fact, Bill Gates was only mentioned 4 times in the entire article body. Other than the introduction which claimed that he’s about to be prosecuted for child rape, the article itself did not once say that Bill Gates was about to be charged for child rape.

This is as exciting as going to the theatre to watch a movie starring Tom Cruise, and seeing his face plastered on the movie poster… only to find out in the actual movie that he was merely recorded in the background walking with his son Connor. Totally lame.

Fact #2 : Bill Gates Has Not Been Prosecuted For Child Rape

To be clear – Bill Gates has not been prosecuted for child rape. In fact, there is no known investigation tying him to any child rape.

On top of that – The People’s Voice article itself does not actually say that he has been prosecuted for child rape. In fact, most of the article appears to avoid mentioning Bill Gates!

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Bill Gates For Murder?!

Fact #3 : Melinda Gates Message Appears To Be Fake

The Melinda Gates post telling Bill Gates that “It’s prison time” and that “Epstein blackmailed” him appears to be completely fabricated.

Even though it served as the cover image for The People’s Voice video, it was not mentioned or shown even once in the 11-minute long video. It was also poorly mosaiced, which allowed us to make out some of the words:

It’s prison time Bill.

You’re a sick (sonofabitch?) for abusing those children. 

I have it all on tape.

Epstein blackmailed you and it’s catching up with (you?)

I hope they throw away (the key?)

Don’t attempt to speak to me or our children.

Melinda Gates has never posted such a thing to her former husband. If she did, it would have been international news.

I should also point out that she uses her full name – Melinda French Gates, instead of just Melinda Gates, in her social media accounts.

Did WEF Order Arrests Of Climate Change Deniers?!

Did the WEF order world governments to start arresting climate change deniers?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Orders Arrests Of Climate Change Deniers!

People are sharing an article by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), suggesting or claiming that the World Economic Forum (WEF) just ordered world governments to arrest climate change deniers!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is pretty long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

WEF Orders World Govt’s To Begin Arresting ‘Climate Deniers’

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has ordered world governments to being arresting citizens to refuse to believe in man-made climate change.

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Klaus Schwab For Genocide?!

 

Truth : WEF Did Not Order Arrests Of Climate Change Deniers!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created about the WEF, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Was An Article, Not A Memo

First, let me just point out that it was a World Economic Forum article (link here), and not a memo.

Unlike an article, a memo – short for memorandum – is a brief written record / reminder of the author’s memory, or to serve as a quick summary of a meeting or discussion.

The article was also written by two authors – John Letzing and Minji Sung, not a single author as claimed in The People’s Voice article.

Fact #2 : Article Was About Rights-Based Climate Lawsuits

The WEF article did not call “climate inaction” a “human rights violation” as claimed in The People’s Voice article.

In fact, the title of the article questioned that – Is climate inaction a human rights violation?

The WEF article also pointed out that “rights-based climate litigation” has “a mixed track record“.

Fact #3 : WEF Did Not Order Any Arrest

Nowhere in the entire WEF article did anyone call for the arrest of any climate change denier.

In fact, the words “arrest” or “arresting” do not appear a single time in the entire WEF article.

Just to be clear – issuing a lawsuit against someone or an organisation does not mean you are ordering them to be arrested.

Recommended : COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Stillbirth Surge In Singapore?!

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Offered Zero Evidence

Interestingly, The People’s Voice article itself has not offered any evidence that the WEF ordered world governments to arrest anyone, much less “citizens [who] refuse to believe in man-made climate change”.

In fact, the words “arrest” or “arresting” only appear twice in its entire article. Once in the title, and once in its byline:

WEF Orders World Govt’s To Begin Arresting ‘Climate Deniers’

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has ordered world governments to being arresting citizens to refuse to believe in man-made climate change.

That's it. There is no other mention of the words "arrest" or "arresting" anywhere else in The People's Voice article.

Fact #5 : The People's Voice Is A Fake News Website

The People's Voice is the new name / brand for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited and made worthless.

Like Real Raw News, NewPunch was a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

It was founded as Your News Wire in 2014, before being rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news spread on Facebook that year.

Comedian in China arrested + fined US$2.1 Million!

A comedian in China was just arrested and fined US$2.1 million for using a CCP slogan created by Chinese President Xi Jinping in his joke!

 

China Arrests + Fines Comedian US$2.1 Million For CCP Joke!

In the communist utopia of China, comedian Li Haoshi (who goes by the stage name, House) was just arrested by police after being fined a whopping 14.67 million yuan, which works out to about US$2.1 million!

What dastardly crime did Li Haoshi / House commit to deserve such a massive fine, and arrest? Well, the Chinese comedian simply made a joke using a CCP slogan created by Chinese President Xi Jinping!

The fine was issued by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism, which concluded that his show was “a plot amounting to a serious insult to the People’s Liberation Army, and creates a bad social influence“.

We will never allow any company or individual to wantonly slander the glorious image of the People’s Liberation Army on a stage in the [Chinese] capital, never allow the people’s deep feelings for the soldiers to be hurt, and never allow serious subjects to be turned into entertainment.

What a glorious statement indeed by the most noble bureau of culture in China!

The Bureau confiscated RMB 1.32 million in “illegal proceeds” from the entertainment company representing House, and fined it RMB 13.35 million. The company was also banned from performing in Beijing indefinitely.

But that was not the end. On Wednesday, May 17, the Chaoyang branch of the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau stated that an investigation was opened against Li Haoshi / House for making “derogatory remarks against the People’s Liberation Army”.

On the morning of Thursday, May 18, the comedian was arrested by the police. There has been no word on his whereabouts since then.

The US$2.1 Million CCP Joke That Made China Mad!

So what exactly was the world’s most expensive joke all about?

During his show in Beijing on Saturday, Li Haoshi / House spoke about how he adopted two stray dogs since moving to Shanghai. He joked that when they chased after a squirrel one day, he was reminded of these eight words:

作风优良,能打胜仗
Good style of work, capable of winning battles

That was a flipped version of the slogan that was coined by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013, when he set out a list of qualities he wanted from the People’s Liberation Army (PLA)

建设一支听党指挥能打胜仗作风优良的人民军队
Build a people’s army that obeys the party’s command and can win battles with a good style of work

In the audio shared to Weibo, his audience can be heard laughing at the joke. Unfortunately, it went viral and caught the attention of Chinese nationalists and then the CCP government.

His joke was deemed to be insulting because “dogs” and “stray dogs” are used as insults in China. It is also common for Chinese netizens to also use insults like “American lapdogs”, for example.

In other words, his joke was perceived to be insulting both President Xi Jinping (who coined the slogan), and the PLA by referring to its soldiers as “stray dogs” that can win battles with a good style of work.

At military parades, especially when Xi Jinping is watching, PLA soldiers will often shout the slogan:

听党指挥,能打胜仗,作风优良!
Follow the Party’s command, capable of winning battles, with excellent conduct!

Now, such jokes may be par for the course in many free, democratic societies, but Li Haoshi / House appeared to have forgotten that China under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is neither free nor democratic.

If he made the same joke using a slogan by Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, he would have gotten only laughs, because Taiwan is free and democratic. Unfortunately, he made a joke about the CCP and the PLA. Even worse, he made a joke about something Xi Jinping said, and that was the ultimate sin that anyone in mainland China can commit.

Li Haoshi / House and his company were not the only casualties of this expensive joke. Three other comedy companies suspended all of their performances as a result of this controversy :

  • Danli Ren Comedy (单立人喜剧),
  • Owl Comedy (猫头鹰喜剧), and
  • Xiaosheng Comedy Club (笑生喜剧脱口秀俱乐部)

Even more startling – a 34 year-old woman surnamed Shi was detained by police in Dalian city, after she posted a comment online, asking “Why should House be banned? Aren’t all soldier brothers also dog brothers?

This goes to show just how closely the CCP government monitors speech in China, and how swiftly and mercilessly it strikes at people who even deigns to mock its authority.

Did ICC Just Issue Arrest Warrant For Joe Biden?!

Did the ICC (International Criminal Court) just issue an arrest warrant for President Joe Biden for attacking the Nord Stream pipelines?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : ICC Just Issued Arrest Warrant For President Joe Biden!

People are sharing a YouTube video which shows the ICC (International Criminal Court) issuing an arrest warrant for President Joe Biden for his role in the destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines!

Recommended : Did Morgan Freeman Just Call Joe Biden A Fool?!

 

Truth : ICC Did Not Issue Arrest Warrant For President Joe Biden!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by pro-Russia activists, and promoted / shared by  the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) and pro-CCP netizens, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : This Video Was From July 2022

While this video is being presented as new – “Breaking News!!“, it is actually more than 9 months old.

I traced the video to the opening statement of ICC Chief Prosecutor Karim A. A. Khan QC, which was recorded on July 14, 2022.

Fact #2 : ICC Called For Cooperation Into Ukraine War Crimes Probe

In the original video, ICC Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan was speaking at the Ukraine Accountability Conference in The Hague, where he called for “an overarching strategy” to bring the perpetrators of war crimes in Ukraine to justice.

The simple truth is that, as we speak, children, women and men, the young and the old, are living in terror.

Just in case you are wondering – the Ukraine Accountability Conference was held to coordinate efforts to create a coherent approach in ensuring accountability for war crimes committed in Ukraine.

Fact #3 : Viral Video Features A Fake “Satire” Voice-Over

The video is real, but the original audio was replaced by a fake “satire” voice-over. Karim Khan spoke English in the original video, so there was no need for a translator.

The fake video creator actually mentioned this in the video’s title, but intentionally made the extra long to reduce visibility of that disclaimer. The fake news creator also mentioned the use of a fake voice-over in the description:

BREAKING NEWS!! Arrest Warrant Issued For President Biden For Nord Stream (Satire Interpreter Voice)

How To Be A Hypocrite From AlienJacket Show How The Actions Of The West Divides The World Instead Of Bring It Together. Satire Interpreter Voice To Show What An Alternate Reality Would Look Like Or Prefer. Again, Satire Satire Satire!

This goes to show just how many people don’t bother to even read the title.  Of course, when it comes to pro-Russia and pro-CCP netizens, who cares? If it is anti-America, it must be true.

Fact #4 : It Was Posted By A New “Parody” YouTube Account

The viral video was posted by a new YouTube account created on March 15, 2023. So far, this YouTube channel – AlienJacket, posted seven anti-Western videos – six of which are fake “parody” videos.

The only non-parody video is of Zambian politician Fred M’membe criticising the United States at China’s recent “democracy forum” – the the Second International Forum on Democracy.

Fact #5 : Unknown Who Destroyed Nord Stream 2 Pipelines

It is currently unknown who destroyed the Nord Stream 2 pipelines. As far as plausible reasons go, many countries had plausible reasons to destroy the Nord Stream pipelines:

  • US : To prevent allies in Europe from being held hostage by their reliance on cheap Russian gas.
  • UK : To encourage allies in Europe to support Ukraine in its fight against the Russian invasion.
  • Russia : To stop supplying Europe without breaking its gas supply contracts, and/or to divide Europe.
  • Ukraine : To unite Europe against Russia.

While motive is important, it is not evidence that a country has committed the crime. There has to be actual evidence that the US / UK / Russia / Ukraine did it.

Regardless of what armchair experts may claim, there is simply no conclusive evidence YET that any of those countries are responsible for the destruction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines.

Fact #6 : This Is Pro-Russia Propaganda

This is really nothing more than yet another example of pro-Russia propaganda, like these examples:

Did Secret Service arrest people for protesting Biden?!

Did the US Secret Service arrest people just because they were protesting as the Joe Biden motorcade passed by?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Secret Service Arrested People For Protesting Joe Biden Motorcade!

People are sharing a video clip of US Secret Service agents wrestling a protestor to the ground, and arresting her for protesting while a motorcade with President Joe Biden passed by, with accompanying comments like:

The Secret Service arrested protesters who were demonstrating as the Biden motorcade passed by.
Imagine if this happened in China..!

Western media will endlessly report on the brutality of the Chinese police… 😡

Truth : Secret Service Did NOT Arrest People For Protesting Joe Biden Motorcade!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) or pro-CCP netizens and groups, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was Taken On June 8, 2022

This video is being shared by pro-CCP netizens in April 2023, it is actually more than two years old.

The video was recorded on June 8, 2022, as President Joe Biden was being driven in a motorcade to the LA Convention Center for the Summit of the Americas.

The video and photos of that incident were published by many news organisations, including CBS News, Fox News, NBC, Daily Mail, New York Post, etc. so this is easily verified by a simple online search.

Fact #2 : Protestor Was Arrested For Approaching Motorcade

The US secret agent did not wrestle the young woman to the ground for protesting President Joe Biden. She was tackled and arrested, because she broke the security cordon and approached the presidential motorcade.

By walking onto the restricted road into the path of the presidential motorcade, she not only risked getting hit by the passing vehicles, she posed a potential security risk to President Joe Biden and other people travelling in that motorcade.

Hence, the Secret Service agent had no choice but to tackle her, and remove her from the restricted roadway. Secret Service chief of communications Anthony Guglielmi later confirmed this:

Shortly after 5pm, an adult female entered a restricted roadway along a motorcade route on Chick Hearn Ct in Los Angeles.

As the woman approached passing vehicles, a United States Secret Service agent swiftly removed her from the roadway and placed her into custody.

There was no impact to the motorcade movement or our protectees. Our investigation into this incident is ongoing.

Fact #3 : Summit of the Americas Protestors Were Not Arrested

In the United States of America, people have the right to protest. It is enshrined in the First Amendment of its Constitution, which states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The First Amendment not only guarantees freedom of religion and speech, it also guarantees the right to assemble and protest peacefully.

Like many major international events, the 2022 Summit of the Americas saw people from different camps coming out to protest.

One group protested President Joe Biden’s decision to exclude Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela from the event, while the other group were there to counter-protest in agreement with the president.

Fact #4 : She Was Not Protesting President Joe Biden

Ironically, the protestor who was wrestled to the ground was not even protesting the Summit of the Americas. Neither was she protesting against President Joe Biden.

She was just a pro-choice activist who was incensed by a leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion to overturn the landmark Roe v Wade decision on abortion rights. She was heard screaming, “An abortion ban will not stop abortions – only safe ones.

The Biden Administration is pro-choice, and is in favour of abortion rights. So the claim that she was protesting President Joe Biden is nonsense.

Even if she was protesting Joe Biden, she would not have been arrested if she did not breach the security cordon surrounding the presidential motorcade.

Fact #5 : China Often Arrests Protestors

It is extremely hypocritical for pro-CCP netizens to share this fake news, because China often arrests people who protest. Even something as innocuous as putting up a protest banner can get you arrested.

Take for example, the famous Bridge Man. On Thursday, 13 October 2022, a man was quickly arrested after he strung banners across a bridge in Beijing that accused President Xi Jinping of being a dictator.

Needless to say, people who actually participate in a protest are quickly arrested by Chinese police, as the photo below shows – that man was arrested for protesting COVID-19 restrictions in Shanghai on 27 November 2022.

Even online dissent is firmly and quickly quashed. Anything remotely sensitive is quickly censored, and the user’s account either suspended or deleted. People who make controversial comments are also often called up by the police, and may be arrested for making them.
