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!

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.

Everything posted by Real Raw News should be regarded as FAKE NEWS.

Did Grammy-nominated Juan Carlos Formell die suddenly on the stage from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

People are sharing a video of Juan Carlos Formell collapsing on stage in New York, claiming that it’s evidence the Grammy-nominated musician died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Truth : Juan Carlos Formell Did Not Die From Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Juan Carlos Formell Died From A Heart Attack

Juan Carlos Formell was a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter who settled in New York after defecting from Cuba. He replaced his famous father as the bassist for the band, Los Van Van in 2014.

On Friday, May 26, 2023, Juan Carlos Formell was playing with the Los Van Van at the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts in the Bronx, New York City, when he apparently felt ill.

He was seen in the video suddenly walking behind his band, eventually collapsing at the back of the stage. He was carried off the stage, while his band played on, unaware of what had just happened. Later, Los Van Van would announce his death.

It is with great sadness that we inform you that our brother and bass player has passed away.

Everyone who ever met him knows how special he was as a human being, as a professional and as a musician. We are all devastated with this news.

We have the joy that his last moments were on stage giving everything for our music, for our family, for Los Van Van and for their fans.

We wish you eternal light together with our father and all the great Vanvaneros who watch over us from Heaven. We will miss you so much Juanca.

His romantic and musical partner, Danae Blanco, would later confirm his death from a heart attack.

Fact #2 : Juan Carlos Formell Had Health Problems

Danae Blanco also shared that Juan Carlos Formell had hypertension (high blood pressure) and arteriosclerosis – both major risk factors for heart disease and heart attacks.

Juan Carlos Formell (born on February 2, 1964 in Havana, Cuba) was 59 years old when he died.

Fact #3 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Cause Heart Attacks

Just in case there is any doubt, COVID-19 vaccines cannot cause a heart attack. But neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting heart attacks, or dying from them.

An acute myocardial infarction (AMI), or a heart attack, occurs when blood supply to the heart muscle is abruptly cut off, usually due to a blockage of one or more coronary arteries. While a heart attack offers a window of time for medical personnel to treat, it can cause a more serious problem – ventricular fibrillation.

Ventricular fibrillation (V-fib) often occurs during a heart attack because the heart can become electrically unstable when its muscles don’t get enough blood. The dangerous heart rhythms that develop cause the lower heart chambers to contract rapidly and erratically, leading to sudden cardiac death.

Just to be clear – COVID-19 vaccines also do not cause ventricular fibrillation, except in the fantasies of conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists.

Heart attacks and ventricular fibrillation are also very common. People have had heart attacks and V-fib long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Juan Carlos Formell Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Juan Carlos Formell was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly mentioned his vaccination status.

It is possible that he may not even be vaccinated, as the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States. In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Juan Carlos Formell was vaccinated against COVID-19, is likely lying to you.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Juan Carlos Formell was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false in every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…
