Died Suddenly : Lies In Antivax Video Exposed!

Died Suddenly : More Lies In Antivax Video Exposed!

Died Suddenly – the anti-vaccination documentary was just released, and it is full of lies and misinformation!

Take a look at some of the false claims in Died Suddenly, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Died Suddenly : An Anti-Vaccination “Documentary”

Anti-vaccination activist and conspiracy theorist Stew Peters just launched Died Suddenly – his “documentary” on sudden deaths that he blames on the COVID-19 vaccine.

It appears to be nothing more than a mishmash of sudden death and fainting videos, packaged as “evidence” they must absolutely be caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

The trouble is – the sudden deaths featured in his “documentary” were not confirmed to be caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. In fact, many of them did not even die!

Even those who died suddenly did not actually die from the COVID-19 vaccine, but from other causes that were already revealed publicly!

With some help from The Real Truther, I will expose the lies in the Died Suddenly “documentary”. This is a work in progress as the video is long, so I will be adding the lies and evidence as I go through it.

Died Suddenly : Did Embalmers Find Vaccine-Induced Clots?!

One of the key premise of his “documentary” is that these sudden deaths are caused by mysterious white fibres or blood clots found by embalmers like Richard Hirschman.

Hirschman has been making these claims for a long time now, but it now takes centerstage in Stew Peter’s fake documentary – Died Suddenly.

For a detailed examination of their claims, please read my article, Did Embalmers Find Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots?!

 

Died Suddenly : People Who Did NOT Die At All…

This section will contain people in the Died Suddenly video who did not die at all.

Argentinian Nutritionist Teresa Coccaro

The Died Suddenly video features a shot of Argentinian nutritionist Teresa Coccaro collapsing on TV.

What it doesn’t tell you is that Teresa Coccaro did not die suddenly. She only fainted from syncope, and recovered soon after that.

American Nurse Tiffany Dover

The Died Suddenly video also showed a flash of Tiffany Dover fainting on TV. She too did not die, but fainted from syncope.

Florida Gators Basketball Star Keyontae Johnson

The Died Suddenly trailer features a video of Florida Gators basketball star Keyontae Johnson collapsing on the court.

The trouble is – Johnson collapsed at a game on December 12, 2020 – this was before the COVID-19 vaccines were made available! So he was most definitely not vaccinated when he collapsed.

On top of that, Keyontae Johnson did not die from the incident. He rejoined his team as a coach at the end of the month, and later joined Kansas State as a forward.

In fact, Keyontae Johnson was recently named Player of the Week on November 14, 2022!

Turkish Driver Crashing His Bus

The Died Suddenly video showcased a Turkish bus driver who appeared to suddenly “die” while driving his vehicle in Istanbul, sometime in September 2022.

The bus driver, Ömer Odabaşı, actually suffered a heart attack. Despite crashing his bus into a roadside cutlery kiosk and four vehicles, no one was killed.

Ömer, the bus driver, and six other people were injured and taken to the hospital for treatment. Ömer is still alive and well today.

Argentinian Woman Fainting Onto Moving Train

The Died Suddenly video also featured a young woman in Argentina who fainted and fell onto a moving train.

The 24 year-old woman, identified as Candela, fainted after not eating all day, and did not die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine.

In fact, she didn’t die from the incident, and was discharged from the hospital after a few days.

Brazilian Reporter Rafael Silva

The Died Suddenly video showed Brazilian reported Rafael Silva collapsing during the Alterosa Alerta program on January 3, 2022.

Rafael Silva did not die, and did not collapse due to the third (booster) dose of the COVID-19 vaccine he received earlier.

He was found to have a mitral annular disjunction (MAD) – a structural malformation in his heart that he was born with. He was discharged about two weeks later, with an automatic defibrillator to prevent a recurrence.

Austrian Journalist Rosa Lyon

The Died Suddenly video also featured an oft-used video clip of Austrian journalist Rosa Lyon collapsing just as her show,  ZiB on ORF 2, started.

She was taken to the hospital for treatment and monitoring. However, her collapse had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine because it happened on 30 September 2019.

That was 3 months before China reported an outbreak of a novel coronavirus that would end up becoming the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and more than 15 months before the first COVID-19 vaccines were available.

Colombian Actress Maria Collapsing On Carolina Cruz’s Día a Día Show

The Died Suddenly video also showed a clip of a Colombian actress called Maria collapsing on Carolina Cruz’s Día a Día show.

The incident happened on October 13, 2022, and the actress, Maria, did not die as the Died Suddenly video suggests.

Queen’s Royal Guard Collapsing

The Died Suddenly trailer also featured this famous scene of the Queen’s Royal Guard collapsing during her funeral. I remember this very well, because I wrote an article about the Royal Guard’s collapse.

Naturally, the Royal Guard did not die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccines, but fainted after standing still for hours. He also recovered quickly after the incident, and is still very much alive and well.

Needless to say – his fainting had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccines.

Comedian Heather McDonald Fainting On Stage

The Died Suddenly trailer also showed a clip of comedian Heather McDonald fainting on stage. However, she also did not die suddenly, but is very much alive.

She explained that she probably fainted because she did not eat or drink enough before the show. She was also nervous about having her family in the audience.

Again, another “sudden death” of someone who did not even die. Merely another case of fainting which had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccines.

Died Suddenly : People Who Died From Other Causes

This section will contain people in the Died Suddenly video who died from other causes.

Cheerleader Victoria Moody

18 year-old cheerleader Victoria Moody died on October 23, 2022 during surgery to remove blood clots in her lungs.

Pulmonary embolism is the third-leading cause of cardiovascular death in the United States, long before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

GenX Radio DJ Tim Gough

55 year-old Tim Gough died while broadcasting from his garden studio. The owner of GenX Radio later confirmed that Gough died from a heart attack.

COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause heart attacks. Heart attacks, incidentally, kill about 58,000 people every year in the United Kingdom, long before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Russian Hockey Player Konstatin Moruga

48 year-old Konstantin Moruga collapsed and died while playing at an amateur hockey game on Sunday evening, September 11, 2022.

His cause of death was confirmed to be sudden cardiac arrest, which has nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccines.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a significant risk factor for athletes. In the United States alone, half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrests are reported every year.

American Actor Kevin Conroy

Kevin Conroy, who is best known for voicing Batman in the animated TV series, died on November 10, 2022 at the age of 66.

He died from colorectal cancer, not the COVID-19 vaccines. Unless detected early, colorectal cancer has a poor prognosis with a poor survival rate.

No matter what the Died Suddenly video may say, there is no evidence that the spike protein causes cancer.

In fact, if they are right that the spike protein causes cancer, a COVID-19 infection would pose a much greater of causing cancer as the virus replicates in our body and produces a TON more spike proteins, unlike the vaccine.

Former Football Player Bani Gbadyu

34 year-old former Pennsylvania State linebacker Bani Gbadyu died on Saturday, October 21, 2022.

He died from pancreatic cancer, not from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect. When Gbadyu was diagnosed earlier in October, he was already very sick, and was hospitalised in intensive care.

Pancreatic cancer is know as the silent killer, because it is often not detected until the cancer is very advanced and has spread throughout the body. The prognosis is therefore often very poor..

This is a work in progress, so I will be adding to this article over time. Do check back shortly for more updates.

But as you can already tell – Died Suddenly isn’t a documentary, but an anti-vaccination propaganda video based on lies and misinformation.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next sudden death / fainting…

Fact Check : Parting Words of Judge Augustine Paul?

Take a look at the parting words of Judge Augustine Paul – the man who convicted Anwar Ibrahim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : These Are The Parting Words Of Judge Augustine Paul

After Anwar Ibrahim was sworn in as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia, people started sharing these “parting words of Judge Augustine Paul – the man who convicted Anwar Ibrahim“.

It’s really long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…

The parting words of Augustine Paul, the judge who convicted Anwar

A very good and MUST READ article by former Judge Augustine Paul who was known for handing down the guilty verdict on Anwar’s sodomy case. Now you can read his regrets and confession over the case as he pointed the fingers at, who else – MM himself! _Yes I respected him at one time but I look upon him with pity. It is the year 2010, Augustine Paul is a broken old man living alone. Close to death, he spends much time mulling over the past.

Truth : These Are NOT The Parting Words Of Judge Augustine Paul

That is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Note : The fact check credit goes to ManaSiaTauSiaMabuk.

Fact #1 : Augustine Paul Convicted Anwar Ibrahim In April 1999

First, let me just offer a quick refresher on Judge Augustine Paul, and his relevance to Anwar Ibrahim.

Augustine Paul was confirmed as a High Court judge less than six months before he presided over Anwar Ibrahim’s corruption case in November 1998.

After a 78-day trial, Judge Augustine Paul convicted Anwar Ibrahim on corruption charges, and sentenced him to six years in prison on 14 April 1999.

Note the 14 April 1999 date. This will be important in dismissing this article as fake later.

Fact #2 : Augustine Paul Died In 2010

Judge Augustine Paul would later die on 2 January 2010, after battling pancreatic cancer. This will be an important point, as you will see later.

Fact #3 : The Footnote Was Removed

The “parting words by Judge Augustine Paul” was originally shared with a disclaimer, stating:

Disclaimer: Extracted from soc.culture.malaysia; by: apaul@mahathir.show.trial

But in later versions, someone decided to remove the disclaimer, probably to make it appear genuine.

Recommended : Can Agong Appoint Anwar Ibrahim As Interim PM?

Fact #4 : It Appears To Be Written As “Fan Fiction”

The original source of the “parting words of Judge Augustine Paul” is this article called “I Watch The Sparrows Fly“, allegedly penned by the justice himself.

However, the letter itself was prefaced by this statement:

It is the year 2018 and Augustine Paul is a broken old man living alone. Close to death, he spends much time mulling over the past.

The “I Watch The Sparrows Fly” article was also published on 20 December 1998, at 4 PM to be precise.

That was almost four months before Judge Augustine Paul sentenced Anwar Ibrahim to six years in jail.

Even if you believe that the date of the original posting was fabricated, Judge Augustine Paul died in 2010 – 8 years before he allegedly penned “I Watch The Sparrows Fly” in 2018.

The only reasonable conclusion we can draw is that “I Watch The Sparrows Fly” was penned by an anonymous writer as a kind of “fan fiction”, which has no basis in fact.

Did Chip Tayag Crash Helicopter From Vaccine SADS?!

Did WBTV pilot Chip Tayag crash his helicopter, just four hours after his 4th COVID-19 vaccination?!

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

 

Claim : Chip Tayag Crashed Helicopter From Vaccine SADS!

On 23 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that WBTV pilot Chip Tayag crashed his helicopter and killed himself and meteorologist Jason Myers, after receiving his fourth COVID-19 vaccination just four hours earlier?

It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

A recently boosted pilot for WBTV, a CNN affiliate, died Tuesday afternoon when the helicopter he was piloting spiraled out of control and crashed in a field near Interstate 77, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Passenger Jason Myers, a meteorologist, also perished in the wreck.

Although the National Transportation Safety Board has yet to release a preliminary accident report, two sources at WBTV told Real Raw News that pilot Chip Tayag had received a fourth Covid-19 vaccination four hours ahead of the fateful flight. They would only comment under condition of anonymity because, they said, WBTV legal issued a directive to all employees—avoid mentioning vaccines when discussing the crash, or don’t discuss it at all, on or off air.

 

Truth : Chip Tayag Did NOT Crash Helicopter From Vaccine SADS!

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

Everything that Real Raw News posts 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 that will go viral, and generate him money.

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

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of COVID-19 Vaccination Before Flight

Only Real Raw News has published anything about Chip Tayag receiving his 4th COVID-19 vaccination just four hours before crashing his helicopter.

If it’s true that Chip Tayag got his 4th vaccine dose just before a flight that ended in a crash, it would have been picked up by at least one or two other blogs, if not the mainstream media.

Yet, no one else could corroborate the claim? How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story” and the many other stories that turned out to be false?

A March 2018 screenshot of Michael Tuffin, who goes by the pseudonym Michael Baxter

Fact #3 : Unknown If Chip Tayag Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Chip Tayag was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects, or had a 4th vaccine dose before he died!

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #4 : WBTV Helicopter Took Off At 11:19 AM

The WBTV helicopter – a Robinson R44, crashed at around 12:20 PM local time, next to the Interstate 77 South highway.

But it took off 38 minutes earlier from the WBTV headquarters in uptown Charlotte at 11:19 AM, according to flight records from RadarBox.

In other words – it is really impossible for Chip Tayag to get his 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine four hours before that flight. Which vaccination centre opens at 7 AM?

Fact #5 : WBTV Helicopter Appeared To Be Malfunctioning

Despite suggestions that Chip Tayag may have died or collapsed from his 4th COVID-19 vaccination, eyewitness accounts stated that the helicopter appeared to be in trouble.

David Bristol, who is a trainee pilot, watched the WBTV Sky 3 helicopter that Chip Tayag was piloting, make slow circles for a while, when he noticed two odd things:

  • the sound Sky 3 made seemed to change
  • he then saw Sky 3 make two odd, hard turns to the left, before suddenly disappearing behind the trees.

Another eyewitness concurred that the helicopter appeared to be in trouble, and the pilot made an aggressive move to prevent crashing onto the highway.

I think that he absolutely knew that he was gonna have to put that down,” the man said. “He did his best to put it down … Whoever the pilot was, did their best to put that thing down where it wasn’t going to injure a lot of people, and in that respect, they did a fabulous job.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Johnny Jennings confirmed that the pilot was in control, and managed to avoid hitting the busy highway.

It seems the pilot that was operating the aircraft made some diversionary moves to avoid hitting traffic … To me it looks like a heroic incident where the pilot tried to avoid injuring anyone else and putting anyone else in danger,” Jennings said. “If that is truly the case then that pilot is a hero, in my eyes, to make sure the safety and security of those driving on the road was not in jeopardy.

From all eyewitness accounts, Chip Tayag did not just collapse after getting his fourth dose of the vaccine. He was in control, and managed to crash the helicopter away from a busy highway.

Fact #6 : USAF Pilots Did Not Resign Over Vaccine Mandate

It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to repeat their long-debunked claim that USAF pilots resigning over the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin never sent any text message demanding that all Armed Forces members to immediately get the COVID-19 vaccine.

In any case, no F-22 pilot or B-52 crew member ever quit over the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Did Embalmers Find Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots?!

Did embalmers find vaccine-induced blood clots in bodies of dead vaccinated people?!

Take a look at this pivotal claim in the Died Suddenly “documentary”, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Died Suddenly : Embalmers Find Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots?!

Anti-vaccination activist and conspiracy theorist Stew Peters just launched Died Suddenly – his “documentary” on sudden deaths that he blames on the COVID-19 vaccine.

One of the key premise of his “documentary” is that these sudden deaths are caused by mysterious white fibres or blood clots found by embalmers like Richard Hirschman.

Hirschman has been making these claims for a long time now, but it now takes centerstage in Stew Peter’s fake documentary – Died Suddenly.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Lies In Antivax Video Exposed!

 

Truth : Embalmers Did Not Find Vaccine-Induced Blood Clots!

This is nothing more than another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, who have no shame and no qualms LYING to you, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Embalmers Do Not Conduct Autopsies

Let me start by pointing out that embalmers are not qualified to conduct autopsies. Richard Hirschman speaks as if he is capable of conducting autopsies, which is simply not the case.

Autopsies are conducted by a medical examiner, who is a certified doctor licensed in forensic pathology. An embalmer is simply someone who is trained to embalm and prepare a dead body for funeral services.

Fact #2 : Embalmers Do Not Know Vaccination Status

Richard Hirschman makes a point of stating that he started tracking in November 2021 how many times he finds strange clots in the bodies he embalms, and their vaccination status.

He even coloured coded his data, using green for people who were verified to be vaccinated. In this screenshot, you can see that he even remarked that one of them was vaccinated 4 times.

How did Hirschman know they were vaccinated? The death certificate does not list the deceased’s vaccination status. An embalmer also wouldn’t have access to the deceased’s medical records.

He would have to personally ask the family members of the deceased about his/her vaccination status, which he never alluded to.

It is also interesting to note that he somehow knew that one of the dead persons he worked on never had COVID-19. Did he run a COVID-19 serology test on the body?

Fact #3 : Most Of His Own Data Not Linked To Vaccination

Even if you take his word for it that he somehow knew the vaccination status of the dead bodies, his own data showed that they accounted for only 16 out of about 118 dead bodies.

So why did he include the other 102 bodies whose COVID-19 vaccination status he did not know?

Fact #4 : Blood Clots Are Common In Refrigerated Bodies

Despite Richard Hirschman’s claim that such blood clots are uncommon, that is actually not true as Monica Forrest, a licensed embalmer with NXT Generation Mortuary Support explained:

The blood clots are from refrigeration. It happens to many bodies. It’s just that there were so many bodies to process, many of them sat in refrigeration for long durations so they got blood clots. It’s not a big deal and these people are trying to make it a thing.

Fact #5 : Blood Clots Vary A Lot

Richard Hirschman started by calling what he found blood clots, but in the Died Suddenly video, he started calling them “white fibrous clots” or “white fibrous structures”.

The composition and appearance of blood clots depends greatly on where they form, and when they are found.

Blood clots that form in the arteries contain few red blood cells, and are formed primarily by fibrin and platelets. On the other hand, venous clots have a higher red blood cell content, although even these clots tend to accumulate fibrin over time.

Blood clots also change with time. Fresh blood clots appear red and are friable, but over time, become gelatinous and rubbery with a yellowish “chicken fan” surface.

Here is a comparison between antemortem and postmortem blood clots, courtesy of Dr. Judy Melinek M.D.

Difference between antemortem and postmortem clots. Courtesy : Dr. Judy Melinek M.D.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Infections Cause Blood Clots

What Died Suddenly does not tell you is that the COVID-19 infection kills many people through abnormal blood clotting, caused by a massive inflammatory response to the virus that increases clotting factors in the blood.

As a result, these patients develop blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary embolism), legs (deep vein thrombosis), arteries to the brain (causing stroke) and kidneys (causing kidney failure), as well as peripheral blood vessels.

Yazan Abou-Ismail, a haematologist at the University of Utah Health explained:

The association between COVID-19 and blood clots was recognized early in the pandemic among hospitalized COVID-19 patients.

These patients experienced blood clots both in deep veins and arteries, which sometimes led to strokes and heart attacks. Although these conditions have mostly been seen in patients with severe COVID-19 illness, people with moderate illness have also developed blood clots.

The incidence of blood clots ranged from 20% to 40% among patients with severe COVID-19 illness, and 3% to 9% among those with mild to moderate COVID-19 illness.

Fact #7 : Abnormal Blood Clots Seen In COVID-19 Deaths

As Monica Torres also explained, abnormal clots were found in people who died from COVID-19 infections “long before vaccinations were available“.

The US National Funeral Directors Association also said that its embalmers noticed similar abnormal blood clots in COVID-19 deaths, in both vaccinated and unvaccinated people.

Fact #8 : Blood Clot Risk Not Seen With mRNA Vaccines

I must point out that the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines do present a very small risk of developing serious blood clots that can be life-threatening.

Called Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT), or Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), this condition is very unique in its combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

It can be treated when diagnose on time, and is not caused by mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna – the vast majority of COVID-19 vaccines used in the United States.

Therefore, it is more likely that not that these blood clots have nothing to do with blood clots caused by the AstraZeneca or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #9 : Swirling Blood In A Tube Is Not Evidence

Instead of an actual pathological evidence of how COVID-19 vaccines can possibly cause these white fibrous clots, Richard Hirschman just swirls some blood in what is probably embalming fluid, and remarks “you can almost see they are stringy looking”.

That’s the kind of “incredible evidence” this embalmer has come up with, and this is drivel that Died Suddenly is based on.

Fact #10 : Embalmers Are Not Medical Examiners

I will end with this – embalmers are not pathologists. With all due respect to these professionals, they are not trained to conduct autopsies, take samples or conduct tests, never mind come to any conclusion about the cause of death.

That’s why the Died Suddenly video only features embalmers (and only a handful!) and not pathologists or forensic pathologists.

The medical examiners who did the actual autopsies would have seen these blood clots and tested them, before handing the bodies over to the embalmers.

The very fact that no medical examiner was featured in the “documentary” is because none of them found anything out of the ordinary.

Based on their experience with COVID-19 deaths, they would have noted the blood clots as common in such deaths, and not scream, “It must be the vaccine!“.

Can Agong Appoint Anwar Ibrahim As Interim PM?

Find out WHY the YDP Agong CANNOT just appoint Anwar Ibrahim as the interim or caretaker PM of Malaysia!

 

YDP Agong Asked To Meet Anwar Ibrahim + Muhyiddin Yassin

22 November 2022 will go down in history as a day of great drama, with many news portals falsely claiming that the YDP Agong appointed Anwar Ibrahim as Interim / Caretaker Prime Minister of Malaysia.

The Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia had earlier given political coalitions and parties up to 2 PM on 22 November 2022 to gain enough support to form a government.

Unfortunately, that 2 PM deadline came and went without any announcement. So the Yang di-Pertuan Agong asked the leaders of the Pakatan Harapan and Perikatan Nasional coalitions to meet him at 4:30 PM.

The media anxiously watched as Anwar Ibrahim and Muhyiddin Yassin entered the National Palace to meet the YDP Agong.

Why Agong CANNOT Appoint Anwar Ibrahim As Interim PM!

That is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by trigger-happy Malaysian media outlets, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Many Media Outlets Prematurely Ejaculated

In an effort to beat their rivals, a number of media outlets posted that the YDP Agong appointed Anwar Ibrahim as the interim or caretaker Prime Minister of Malaysia.

It started with Free Malaysia Today (FMT) which claimed that the YDP Agong appointed Anwar Ibrahim as an interim Prime Minister, only to take the article offline shortly after, and posting an apology.

Anwar Perdana Menteri Sementara : Anwar Ibrahim dilantik sebagai Perdana Menteri sementara.

Anwar Is Interim Prime Minister : Anwar Ibrahim was appointed as interim Prime Minister

Then The Vibes claimed on Twitter that Anwar Ibrahim was named the 10th Malaysian Prime Minister.

JUST IN : @anwaribrahim has been named the 10th Malaysian Prime Minister

Even the New Straits Times (NST) posted TWICE that Anwar Ibrahim was appointed, alternately as interim and caretaker Prime Minister!

Anwar Ibrahim appointed interim PM – Party sources | New Straits Times

Anwar Ibrahim appointed caretaker PM | New Straits Times

Melissa Goh from CNA (Channel NewsAsia) also posted on Twitter, that Anwar Ibrahim was appointed as an interim Prime Minister:

JUST IN : Anwar appointed interim PM, he just needs to build his majority : Anwar’s aide

CNA also repeated that claim on TV, also stating that Anwar’s aide was very excited about it.

The truth is – the YDP Agong did not appoint Anwar Ibrahim as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia, at least not today – 22 November 2022.

Fact #2 : Anwar Ibrahim Confirmed No Decision On PM Had Been Made

After meeting the YDP Agong, Anwar Ibrahim himself addressed the press outside the National Palace, and stated clearly that no decision has been made on who would be Prime Minister of Malaysia.

I, of course, expressed my gratitude to His Highness, and said that we would do our best and digest his advice, and wait for the final decision, which is of course, at the discretion of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. There has been no decision [on who would be Prime Minister].

How did FreeMalaysiaToday, The Vibes, NST and CNA announce that Anwar Ibrahim is the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia, when the man himself said that no decision on that has been made?

The 15th General Election (GE15) resulted in a hung Parliament in Malaysia, with no political coalition or party winning a majority of Parliamentary seats.

Hence, the political parties in Malaysia are anxiously negotiating and bartering with each other… because the first group with at least 112 Members of Parliament will form the next government.

The winning group will then present their new political coalition, and their prime minister candidate, to Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, for his consent.

Fact #4 : Agong Appoints Prime Minister With Majority MP Support

The Constitution of Malaysia is very clear about how the YDP Agong appoints the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Under Article 43 (2) (a), the Yang di-Pertuan Agong will appoint a Prime Minister who, in his judgement, is likely to command the confidence of the “majority of the members of [the House of Representative“.

In other words, the YDP Agong can only appoint Anwar Ibrahim as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia if he is confident that Anwar Ibrahim has the backing of the majority of the newly-elected Members of Parliament!

Of course, Article 40A (a) stipulates that the YDP Agong “may act in his discretion” on “the appointment of a Prime Minister“.

Even so – the YDP Agong cannot appoint Anwar Ibrahim as an Interim Prime Minister, because there is no provision for such a position in the Constitution!

If the YPD Agong ends up appointing Anwar Ibrahim as the Prime Minister of a minority government, it will be as the Prime Minister of Malaysia, not as an interim Prime Minister.

Fact #5 : Malaysia Already Has A Caretaker Prime Minister

It is also not possible for the YDP Agong to appoint a caretaker Prime Minister, because one already exists!

The previous Prime Minister of Malaysia becomes its caretaker Prime Minister once Parliament is dissolved, and until the next Prime Minister is appointed.

Currently, the caretaker Prime Minister of Malaysia remains Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Fact #6 : Muhyiddin Yassin Revealed Why Anwar Was Not Appointed As PM

After he left his audience with the YDP Agong, Perikatan Nasional chairman Muhyiddin Yassin revealed that the King suggested that Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Perikatan Nasional (PN) form a unity government.

It is likely the King “suggested” that Anwar Ibrahim would be the Prime Minister of such a unity government.

However, he rejected the suggestion as Perikatan Nasional will not cooperate with Pakatan Harapan.

I was asked to sign a document to state if we agree (to cooperate with PH) I signed the paper but I wrote at the top that we disagree (to work with PH.

Everyone knows why we can’t cooperate with PH. This is our stance before and it is still now. We will not work with Pakatan Harapan.

Because PN rejected the King’s proposal, PH still does not have the requisite number of MPs to form the government.

Hence, as per Article 43 of the Constitution of Malaysia (see Fact #4 above), the YDP Agong cannot appoint Anwar Ibrahim as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

That is also why the YDP Agong asked to meet all 30 MPs from the Barisan Nasional party tomorrow morning. It is likely that he wants to see if they can be convinced to join PH in forming a unity government.

Did US Military Hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel?!

Did the US military just hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel at their Guantanamo Bay naval base?!

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

 

Claim : US Military Hanged Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel To Death!

On 18 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that the US Navy just hanged Moderna CEO, Stéphane Bancel at its Guantanamo Bay naval base!

It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Moderna CEO and eugenicist Stéphane Bancel lost his life Friday afternoon after a hangman for the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate Generals Corp’s put a noose around his neck and flipped a switch that opened a swinging door beneath the pharmaceutical mogul’s feet.

Bancel’s death was a quiet affair. Vice Adm. Darse E. Crandall did not attend the execution, nor did the cadre of military of brass that had been present at earlier hangings. Instead, Bradley Earl, Command Master Chief, JAG Law Program Judge Advocate General’s Corps, oversaw the execution.

 

Truth : US Military Did NOT Hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel!

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

Everything that Real Raw News posts 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 that will go viral, and generate him money.

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

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of Stephane Bancel’s Arrest

Only Real Raw News has published his fantastical account of US special forces arresting Stéphane Bancel outside a DC restaurant. That’s because Michael Baxter / Tiffin made it up.

Naturally, there is no news from any legitimate news outlet, or the US military, about Stephane Bancel’s arrest sentencing and hanging in Gitmo.

How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story”?

Read more : Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel Arrested For Vaccine Fraud?

A March 2018 screenshot of Michael Tuffin, who goes by the pseudonym Michael Baxter

Fact #3 : Moderna Is A Public-Listed Company

Moderna is a public-listed company, and is traded on the Nasdaq as MRNA. Its shareholders would have to be informed if their company CEO was really arrested, and sentenced to death.

It is NOT POSSIBLE to keep quiet and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s not even legal to cover up such an event from the shareholders.

Fact #4 : Stéphane Bancel + Moderna Issued A Press Statement

On Thursday, November 16, 2022 – one day after Real Raw News claimed Stephane Bancel was sentenced to death, Moderna announced positive results for its two bivalent vaccines targeting the Omicron variant of COVID-19 – mRNA-1273.214, and mRNA-1273.222.

Instead of being incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay, as Michael Baxter/Tiffin claimed, Stephane Bancel announced from Cambridge, Massachusetts that:

We are pleased to see that both of our bivalent booster vaccine candidates offer superior protection against Omicron BA.4/BA.5 variants compared to our original booster, which is encouraging given COVID-19 remains a leading cause of hospitalisation and death globally. In addition, the superior response against Omicron persisted for at least three months after the mRNA-1273.214 booster.

Only Michael Baxter / Tiffin can persist with such a stupid lie, and only his idiotic fans will continue to believe his fake stories.

Read more : Was Bill Gates Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity?

Fact #5 : Only Enemy Combatants Are Detained At Gitmo

It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that a US military tribunal in Gitmo (Guantanamo Bay) convicted Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death.

The Guantanamo Bay prison is only used to detain high-value enemy combatants. Stephane Bancel is not an enemy combatant by any military or legal definition, and would never be detained there.

If Stephane Bancel really committed a crime in the United States, he would have been brought to trial in an American court.

Fact #6 : US Military Tribunals Are Only For Foreign Combatants

It is also stupid for Real Raw News to claim that Bancel was trialed and convicted as an enemy combatant in a military tribunal, when he is a French civilian.

Military tribunals in the United States can only be conducted for members of enemy forces during wartime. The United States is not at war with France.

Needless to say – Stephane Bancel is also not in the French military, so even if he was arrested, there is no way he would be tried in a military tribunal.

Fact #7 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

It is also hilarious that Real Raw News readers actually believe the bullshit that someone sentenced to death would be executed just days later.

That may be possible in a country like North Korea, but certainly not in the United States

Death row inmates in the United States wait an average of 178 months – about 15 years after their sentencing, before they are executed.

In fact, none of the six Gitmo inmates charged with capital crime in the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and the attack on USS Cole in 2000, have actually been trialled to date, never mind convicted and sentenced to death.

Fact #8 : US Military Has Not Executed Anyone Since 1961

Even though the US military has killed many combatants intentionally, and civilians as collateral damage, they have not executed prisoners since 1961.

There are four US military inmates on death row, but none of them have been executed so far.

Fact #9 : US Military Cannot Execute Anyone By Hanging

The US military can no longer execute anyone by hanging. In fact, the last US military execution by hanging occurred in 1961 – their last execution ever.

If the US military has to execute anyone, only lethal injection is allowed. Death by hanging is no longer allowed.

Everything that Real Raw News posts should be regarded as FAKE NEWS.

Did Sarawak MPs Fight To Protest GPS Joining PN?!

Did thirteen Sarawak Members of Parliament fight to protest against GPS joining with PN (Perikatan Nasional) to form the federal government of Malaysia?!

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

 

Claim : Sarawak MPs Fought To Protest GPS Joining PN!

Two videos of men fighting in a conference hall has gone viral, along with this message (with machine translation into English) :

The 13 MPs from the ruling coalition in Sarawak do not support TSMY (Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin) and PN (Perikatan Nasional) to form a cabinet.:

1. Willie Mongin (P198 Puncak Borneo, PBB)

2. Richard Riot Jaem (P199 Serian, SUPP)

3. Doria Sophia Brodi (P202 Sri Aman, PRS)

4. Roy Anger Gingkoi (P203 Lubok Antu, PRS)

5. Richard Rapu (P204 Betong, PBB)

6. Huang Tiong Sii (P208 Sarikei, SUPP)

7. Aaron Ago Trading (P210 Kanowit, PRS)

8. Edwin Banta (P214 Selangau, PRS)

9. Alexander Nanta Linggi (P215 Kapit, PBB)

10. Ugak Kumbong (P216 Hulu Rejang, PRS)

11. Tiong King Sing (P217 Bintulu, PDP)

12.亨利森阿贡(P222 Lawas,PBB)

13. Ali Biju (P205 Saratok, PN)

Sarawak Chief Minister Abang Johari must abide by the wishes of the majority of MPs who support Anwar and Pakatan Harapan.

Recommended : Did Agong Appoint Anwar Ibrahim As Interim PM?!

 

Truth : Sarawak MPs Did NOT Fight To Protest GPS Joining PN!

That is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Videos Were Of Altercation In Indonesia, Not Malaysia

The two viral videos are genuine, and occurred today – 22 November 2022. However, the videos were not recorded in Sarawak, Malaysia; but in Solo, Indonesia.

To be specific, the videos were recorded at the Musyawarah Nasional Himpunan Pengusaha Muda Indonesia (Munas HIPMI) which was held at Hotel Alila, in Solo, Indonesia.

According to CNBC Indonesia, several participants of the National Conference of Young Indonesian Entrepreneurs fought after a disagreement on who should chair the conference.

Fact #2 : GPS Will Leave It To The Agong To Decide

Many Sarawak Members of Parliament have made it known that they do not want to work together with Perikatan Nasional, because of its PAS component party.

However, they did not need to physically “fight” anyone to get their point across, because earlier today (22 November 2022), GPS had already issued a public statement (with our English translation):

GPS has submitted a proposal to establish the Government of Malaysia from a coalition consisting of PN, BN, GPS and GRS which represents the inclusiveness of Malaysian society consisting of various races and religions.

Given the political turmoil in Peninsular Malaysia, GPS is of the opinion that the people’s mandate should be respected.

Therefore, GPS submits to the wisdom of His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong in accordance with the powers allocated to His Majesty in the Malaysian Constitution to appoint a Prime Minister who will lead a strong government to govern the country.

GPS insists that the interests of the country are prioritized and the establishment of a stable government takes into account the interests of the people and the country above personal interests.

In other words – there is NO NEED for anyone in GPS to fight over joining Perikatan Nasional. They have already announced that they are leaving it to the YDP Agong to decide for them.

Will Agong Use Online Poll To Appoint Anwar Ibrahim As PM?!

Did the YDP Agong ask for Astro Awani to conduct an online poll, so he can use it to appoint Anwar Ibrahim as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia?!

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

 

Claim : Agong Wants To Use Online Poll To Appoint Anwar Ibrahim As PM!

People have been sharing this Astro Awani online poll and message on WhatsApp, and social media, claiming that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is going to use it to appoint Anwar Ibrahim as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia!

To all Malaysians, please vote so that DS Anwar Ibrahim is appointed as the 10th Prime Minister. This analysis was made at the request of YDP Agong. Please viral as soon as possible. Thank you.
https://undi.astroawani.com

It is sometimes sent with an audio file of someone claiming to be a member of Invoke Malaysian confirming that this Astro Awani poll is not fake.

https://www.techarp.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/WhatsApp-Audio-2022-11-21-at-18.27.45.mp3?_=1

Another audio file also claims that this is not fake news, but is a way to get the YDP Agong to appoint Anwar Ibrahim as Prime Minister, instead of Muhyiddin Yassin.

Truth : Agong Will NOT Use Online Poll To Install Anwar Ibrahim As PM!

That is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : First Group To Exceed 111 MPs Can Form Next Government

The 15th General Election (GE15) has resulted in a hung Parliament in Malaysia, with no political coalition or party winning a majority of Parliamentary seats.

Hence, the political parties in Malaysia are now anxiously negotiating and bartering with each other… because the first group with at least 112 Members of Parliament will form the next government.

The winning group will then present their new political coalition, and their prime minister candidate, to Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, for his consent.

Fact #2 : Agong Appoints Prime Minister According To MPs, Not Online Poll

The Constitution of Malaysia is very clear about how the YDP Agong appoints the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Under Article 43 (2) (a), the Yang di-Pertuan Agong will appoint a Prime Minister who, in his judgement, is likely to command the confidence of the “majority of the members of [the House of Representative“.

In other words, the YDP Agong can only appoint Anwar Ibrahim as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia if he is confident that Anwar Ibrahim has the backing of the majority of the newly-elected Members of Parliament!

To be clear – the YDP Agong cannot appoint Anwar Ibrahim as Prime Minister merely on the basis of an online poll of random people on the Internet!

Read more : Did SPR Mislabel GE15 Ballot Box To Cheat Voters?!

Fact #3 : Astro Awani Poll Asked For Prediction, Not Preference

I should also point out that the Astro Awani poll was NOT asking their viewers for their preference of Prime Minister. Everyone did that earlier, by voting for the political party of their choice during GE15.

If you read the poll carefully, you will see that Astro Awani was only asking its viewers for their “prediction” of who they think will end up becoming Prime Minister.

Instead of asking “Who do you want to be 10th PM?“, Astro Awani asked, “Who will be the 10th PM?

Hung Parliament: Who will be the 10th PM?

Fact #4 : You Can Vote Multiple Times

You can only select one of the three options and pass a CAPTCHA test, but otherwise, the Astro Awani online poll has no restrictions.

Critically – you can vote as many times as you like. That makes the poll completely useless as a guide of the people’s sentiment.

In last two general elections, Malaysians had their fingers dipped in indelible ink, specifically to prevent anyone from voting more than once.

If voting online multiple times is allowed, then governments will be elected by those who have the most supporters clicking the fastest and the longest.

This Astro Awani online poll only serves as a gimmick to bring people into their website. Cynical observers may wonder if the fake message was created by Astro Awani to drive traffic to their website…

Fact #5 : Astro Awani Called It Fake News

On Sunday, 20 November 2022, Astro Awani issued a press statement, calling the viral message “fake news” and “irresponsible”, and denied any involvement.

Unfortunately, Astro Awani continue to leave the poll running. The traffic from the viral message must be really awesome.

They may or may not have created the fake viral message, but they are sure enjoying the traffic it brings!

Do the right thing, Astro Awani – delete the poll, and replace it with your press statement about this fake news instead.

Please WATCH OUT about such FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media. They are designed to reduce voter confidence in the electoral process.

Is Chris Hemsworth Taking Break Over Alzheimer’s Gene News?!

Is Chris Hemsworth taking a break from acting, after discovering he has a genetic predisposition for Alzheimer’s disease?!

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

 

Claim : Chris Hemsworth Is Taking Break Over Alzheimer’s Gene News!

The entertainment industry is abuzz over a Vanity Fair article about Chris Hemsworth, after he revealed that he has a genetic predisposition for Alzheimer’s disease!

Many reported that Chris Hemsworth has decided to take a break from acting after receiving the news he has not one, but two APOE4 genes, which predisposes to Alzheimer’s disease.

The Star : Chris Hemsworth to take acting break after Alzheimer’s predisposition discovery

MARCA : Chris Hemsworth is taking a break from acting after discovering his high Alzheimer’s risk

GameSpot : Chris Hemsworth Taking A Break From Acting After Discovering He Is At Risk For Alzheimer’s

Variety : Chris Hemsworth ‘Taking Time Off,’ Discovered Genetic Predisposition for Alzheimer’s Disease: ‘I’m Going to Just Simplify’

 

Truth : Chris Hemsworth NOT Taking Break Over Alzheimer’s Gene News!

Unfortunately, this is yet another case of FAKE NEWS created by writers who did not read the Vanity Fair article, or just wanted to inject more drama into the story…

Fact #1 : Chris Hemsworth Was Tested While Filming Limitless

First, let’s start with some basic facts about how Chris Hemsworth came to discover he had a genetic predisposition for developing Alzheimer’s disease.

  1. Earlier this year, Chris Hemsworth worked on the National Geographic documentary series, Limitless, which looks at how we might be able to push back on the natural aging process.
  2. To prepare for the fifth episode on the topic of Memory, he underwent tests, which eventually revealed that he had a very strong predisposition to develop Alzheimer’s disease.
  3. Specifically, the tests show that he has two copies of the APOE4 gene – one from his mother, and one from his father.
  4. According to a 2021 National Institutes of Health study, one in four people will carry a single copy of the gene, but only 2 to 3% of the population will have both copies of the APOE4 gene.

Okay, now that you have the context, let’s take a look at why Chris Hemsworth is NOT taking a break from acting over this shocking discovery.

Fact #2 : Chris Hemsworth Does NOT Have Alzheimer’s Disease

Let me start by clearing up another claim – that Chris Hemsworth already has Alzheimer’s disease.

No, Chris Hemsworth does NOT have Alzheimer’s disease. He was only joking when he suggested that his “memory’s getting worse“.

CH : Since you told me that, I feel like my memory’s getting worse. It’s a placebo effect—or it’s taking place! [Laughs]

VF : Anytime you forget something it’s like, “Oh no, is this it?”

CH : Yeah, it’s my excuse now. 

Recommended : What Aaron Carter’s Last Texts To Sonya Cruz Reveal!

Fact #3 : Chris Hemsworth May Not Develop Alzheimer’s Disease

Having two copies of the APOE4 gene does NOT necessarily mean Chris Hemsworth will develop Alzheimer’s disease in the future.

APOE4 (also known as apolipoprotein E) is not a pre-deterministic gene, although it strongly predisposes towards the development of Alzheimer’s disease. It also doesn’t help that Chris Hemworth’s grandfather has Alzheimer’s disease.

That said – neither of his parents have developed Alzheimer’s disease, and it is possible that Chris may not develop it either.

That’s why genetic testing for Alzheimer’s disease is not recommended for most people – a positive result does not necessarily mean you will develop it, but could result in undue stress and anxiety.

Fact #4 : Risk Of Alzheimer’s Can Be Reduced

Regardless of any genetic predisposition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease can be reduced by these ways:

  • regular exercise
  • managing your blood sugar level
  • maintaining a healthy weight
  • stop smoking
  • avoid excessive drinking
  • getting enough sleep

Chris took the test results in stride, and saw them as a way to be prepared and work to prevent it from happening:

Like everything in the show I went, “Okay, great. I now have to work on this more.” If you look at Alzheimer’s prevention, the benefit of preventative steps is that it affects the rest of your life. ]

When you have preposition to cardiovascular heart disease, cancer, anything—it’s all about sleep management, stress management, nutrition, movement, fitness. It’s all kind of the same tools that need to be applied in a consistent way.

Fact #5 : Chris Hemsworth Has Been Working Less

Chris Hemsworth then told Vanity Fair that he has become more selective in who he works with, because he has a wife and three young kids.

Now, if something’s going to pull me away from my family and my kids, it’s got to be a positive, constructive, collaborative experience. I shot with George Miller on the new prequel to Fury Road, part of the Mad Max saga, and I said to my agent said, “That’s where I want to spend my work hours; with someone who is kind and collaborative and interesting.”

Fact #6 : Chris Hemsworth Is Just Taking Some Time Off

When Chris Hemsworth talked about a different Limitless episode he did on death, he realised that he didn’t want to miss watching his kids grow up:

“Oh my God, they’re getting older, they’re growing up and I keep slapping another movie on top of another movie.” Before you know it, they’re 18 and they’ve moved out of house, and I missed the window.

That was the trigger for him to decide on “taking some time off“. It’s no different from how we all need a break, and go on a holiday, or spend more time with the family.

Now when I finish this tour this week, I’m going home and I’m going to have a good chunk of time off and just simplify. Be with the kids, be with my wife.

To be clear – Chris Hemsworth is just taking a holiday, and that had NOTHING to do with the discovery he has a predisposition to develop Alzheimer’s disease in the future.

Fact #7 : Chris Hemsworth Still Wants To Act

Just in case it was not clear enough that he’s not going to quit acting, Chris Hemsworth told Vanity Fair that he is still excited about acting, but is just “going to recharge” and “not be so focused on … what’s next”.

I can talk to you for hours about what I want to do, but it doesn’t fill my head 24/7 like it used to. That’s not out of having lost any of the passion for it, it’s just a sense of contentment, and with being very proud of what I’ve done and the experiences I’ve had. I welcome whatever comes next.

As if sensing that some writer out there is going to misunderstand what he told Vanity Fair, Chris Hemsworth repeated that he was not talking about retiring.

I’m not talking about retiring by any means, but like you said: it’s a more curated approach to things.

So let’s not make up stories about how poor Chris Hemsworth is so distraught that he has to take a break from acting to sob over the possibility of developing Alzheimer’s disease in the distant future.

Anyone who actually bothered to read the Vanity Fair interview would have seen him as a man on a mission to enjoy some time with his young family, while working to reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease in the future, because he knows what matters most to him, more than his fans or the films he makes – his family.

Did SPR Mislabel GE15 Ballot Box To Cheat Voters?!

Did SPR put the wrong label on the GE15 ballot box, in an attempt to cheat voters?!

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

 

Claim : SPR Mislabel GE15 Ballot Box To Cheat Voters!

Voting for GE15 is over,  but fake news about the 15th General Election continues to flow…

People have been sharing this video and message on WhatsApp, and social media, claiming that it’s evidence the Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) put the wrong label on the ballot box, in an attempt to cheat the voters!

👆SPR, put wrong label on the ballot box.
Pointed out, by one of the voters. Lucky, she was sharp eyed!

They’d pulled, the same dishonest stunt, in GE14!

 

Truth : SPR Did NOT Mislabel GE15 Ballot Box To Cheat Voters!

That is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : This Video Was Recorded During GE14

The viral message falsely claimed that this video was recorded today, during GE15 – the 15th General Election.

This video was definitely recorded during the 14th General Election on 9 May 2018, because no one in this video was wearing a face mask.

The COVID-19 outbreak only started in December 2019, and became a pandemic only in March 2020. Hence, no one wore a face mask during the 14th General Election.

During GE15, voters are not required to wear a face mask, but generally, most voters will wear a face mask because COVID-19 positive voters are also voting.

The volunteers and SPR officials at the polling station would also be wearing a face mask, because they may have to deal with COVID-19 positive voters.

The most definitive evidence that this was recorded during GE14 is this – the ballot paper colours.

In GE14, the Parliament ballot was orange in colour, while the State ballot was yellow in colour.

In GE15, the Parliament ballot was white in colour, while the State ballot was peach in colour.

As you can see in this screenshot from the video – the ballots are yellow and orange in colour. So this video was definitely recorded on 9 May 2018, during GE14.

Fact #3 : Ballot Box Mix-Up Happened A Few Times During GE14

The mislabelling incident appears to start off with people who voted early accidentally dropping their ballots into the wrong boxes. It didn’t help that the two ballot colours are so similar!

Then people who voted later simply dropped their ballots according to the existing colour in the ballot boxes, without actually checking the box label. That led people to accuse SPR officials of mislabelling the ballot boxes.

In the end, the affected ballot boxes contained a mix of Parliament and State ballots, instead of strictly Parliament OR State ballots.

This was the reason why I recommended that the first voters of the day should check the ballot box labels before dropping in their ballots.

Fact #4 : Ballot Box Mixing Won’t Affect Votes

There was a lot of outrage from voters in GE14, who felt at that time that the SPR would invalidate the votes that were dropped into the wrong box.

The truth is – dropping the ballot into the wrong box will NOT void the vote. As BERSIH explained back in 2018:

This will not impact your vote because before all votes are tallied, all ballot papers will be sorted by colour.

Even SPR officials or voters repeat the same mistake in GE15, this will NOT invalidate your vote.

Please WATCH OUT about such FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media. They are designed to reduce voter confidence in the electoral process.

Regardless of what you may read or see on social media, please have faith in the electoral process, which is safeguarded by the Malaysian civil service and many volunteers.

GE15 : What Can Spoil Your Vote, Or Get It Rejected?

Can improperly crossing the paper ballot spoil your GE15 vote, or get it rejected?!

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

 

Claim : Cross GE15 Paper Ballot In Full, Or Your Vote Will Be Rejected!

Voting for GE15 – the 15th General Election is over, and now, it’s time to count the votes!

An infographic went viral just before GE15, claiming that not fully crossing the paper ballot will spoil your vote in GE15, or get it rejected.

Here’s a summary of what it said, in English:

Voting Criteria

Acceptable Votes
– the number of marked votes meets the required number
– the cross (X) fully occupies the entire box or at least 75% of the box
– in case of mistakes (the cross exceeds the box), the SPR officer must sign his acceptance

Spoilt Votes
– Anomaly : Any marking other than a cross (X)
– Parkinson : Cross not drawn with straight lines
– Dwarfism : Cross is less than 75% of the box
– Gigantism : Cross exceeds the box
– Double Line : Repeated crossing in the box
– Any mistake without a signature by an SPR officer

 

GE15 : What Can Spoil Your Vote, Or Get It Rejected?

That is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : SPR Labelled The Viral Infographic As False

First, let me point out that the Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) labelled the viral infographic as false.

Fact #2 : Only One Vote Per Ballot

If there is one thing you must remember, it is this – you can only mark ONE VOTE PER BALLOT.

If you mark more than once in the ballot – selecting two different candidates, that will cause your ballot to be rejected.

You can mark twice or three times on the same political party or candidate – that’s fine, because your intent is clear – you want to vote for that party or candidate.

What’s not acceptable is voting for more than one candidate per ballot. Doing this will automatically cause your vote to be rejected.

Fact #3 : All Kinds Of Markings Are Acceptable

While SPR asks all voters to mark their votes with a cross (X), your vote will count even if you choose to mark your vote with other markings.

In his 2021 explainer video, the Director of SPR’s Election Academy Hasanul Isyraf, explained that your vote will be counted, as long as the KTM (Head of the Polling Centre) can discern your intention.

So if you mark your ballot paper with a tick (✓), an asterisk (*), a circle (o), or a slash (/ or \) – they will all be accepted, even if they are super small or super large.

But to make it easier for those who are counting the votes, he asked that everyone mark a cross (X) as that is the proper way to mark the paper ballots.

Fact #3 : Lines Do Not Need To Be Straight

At every election, some people will (unhelpfully) advise their friends to bring a ruler, because they claim that the lines must be straight, or the SPR will reject the vote.

That’s also NOT TRUE. You can draw squiggly lines, and the vote will still be accepted.

Fact #4 : You Cannot Write Words On Your Ballot

While different markings are acceptable, you cannot write words on your ballot, even if it is to indicate that you are voting for that party or candidate.

Any writing on the paper ballot will cause your vote to be rejected, even if you wrote “I vote for this party / candidate”.

Fact #5 : You Must Not Mark Outside The Boxed Section

The proper way to vote is to mark your choice in the empty box to the right of your preferred candidate and party.

But the SPR will accept any marking on the candidate’s name or the party’s name.

However, if you mark outside the boxed section, on the empty left side where the SPR stamp and serial number is located – your vote will be rejected.

Fact #6 : Your Ballot Paper Must NOT Be Torn

Before you even mark your ballot, you should make sure that your paper ballot was NOT torn.

It doesn’t matter if the ballot was torn accidentally by the polling clerk, or when you unfold it in the voting booth.

As long as it is torn, you must ask for a replacement ballot. If you don’t, your ballot will be rejected as a spoilt vote.

Please WATCH OUT about such FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media. They are reduce voter confidence in the electoral process.

Regardless of what you may read or see on social media, please have faith in the electoral process, which is safeguarded by the Malaysian civil service and many volunteers.

Did Trump Just Avert World War III, With Putin’s Help?!

Did Donald Trump just prevent World War III, with Russian President Putin’s help?!

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

 

Claim : Trump Just Averted World War III, With Putin’s Help!

On 16 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that Donald Trump just prevented World War III

It is really long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

It was President Donald J. Trump on Tuesday who urged the U.S. military to change its defense posture to Defcon-3 “Roundhouse” after hearing that Russian missiles splashed down in Poland and killed at least two people, but he rescinded that order after receiving an impassioned telephone call from Vladimir Putin and examining photographs of the wreckage.

 

Truth : Trump Did NOT Avert World War III, With Putin’s Help!

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

Everything that Real Raw News posts 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 that will go viral, and generate him money.

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

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of Trump Working With Putin To Avert War

Only Real Raw News has published this fantastical account of Donald Trump working with Russian president Vladimir Putin to avert World War 3. That’s because Michael Baxter / Tuffin made it up as usual.

In fact, everyone else reported that it was US President Joe Biden who calmed everyone down by stating that preliminary information suggested that the missile did not originate from Russia.

How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story” that never happened?

A March 2018 screenshot of Michael Tuffin, who goes by the pseudonym Michael Baxter

Fact #3 : DEFCON Level Is Controlled By Sitting US President

Michael Baxter / Tiffin is apparently unaware that the DEFCON level is primarily controlled by the sitting US President, and the current US Secretary of Defense.

That would be President Joe Biden, and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. Not former President Donald Trump.

Only in his fevered mind would the US military take orders from a former US President, especially an infamously erratic and ignorant one like Donald Trump.

Fact #4 : US Has Been At DEFCON 3 Since October 2022

Real Raw News falsely claimed that Donald Trump asked the US military to increase its defense posture to DEFCON 3, and then rescinded it, insinuating that the United States is now at DEFCON 4.

Michael Baxter / Tiffin is apparently unaware that the United States increased its defense posture from DEFCON 4 to DEFCON 3 in October 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine. The US remains at DEFCON 3 today.

Fact #5 : Only US President Has Authority Over Use Of Nuclear Weapons

Real Raw News falsely claimed that Marine General David H. Berger has control of the nuclear launch codes.

Only the sitting US President has the authority to order the use of nuclear weapons. That command though must be authenticated by another high-ranking official, like the Vice President or Secretary of Defense.

Once authenticated, the order goes to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and to the US Strategic Command, and so on.

In no scenario ever, do nuclear weapons come under the authority of a lowly general from the US Marine Corps.

US Strategic Command is, after all, a separate unified command under the direct control of the US Department of Defense.

Fact #6 : Donald Trump Claimed The Missile Originated From Russia

Real Raw News falsely claimed that Donald Trump worked with Vladimir Putin to ascertain that the missile came from Ukraine, thus averting World War III.

The truth is – it was President Biden who said that “preliminary information” suggested that the missile that hit Poland did not originate from Russia.

I don’t want to say that until we completely investigate. But it is … it’s unlikely, in the minds of the trajectory, that it was fired from Russia. But we’ll see. We’ll see.

Then minutes later, Donald Trump announced that he would be running for President in 2024, and immediately claimed that the missile came from Russia.

Even just today a missile was sent in probably by Russia to Poland, 15 miles into Poland.

If anyone averted a war between Russia and NATO, and possibly World War III, it was President Biden, not Donald Trump.

Fact #7 : Missile Landed In Poland, Not Russia

It is also hilarious that Real Raw News readers actually swallowed Michael Tuffin’s bullshit claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin sent Donald Trump photos of the missile fragments.

Hello? The S-300 missile landed in Poland, not Russia! So the photos could not have originated from Putin or the Russians. They would have to be taken by the Polish authorities!

Fact #8 : US + Poland Confirmed Ukraine Origin Of Missile

US and Polish officials rushed to investigate the origin of the missile, and soon evaluated that it could only come from a Ukrainian missile battery that was trying to intercept a Russian missile.

From the information that we and our allies have, it was an S-300 rocket made in the Soviet Union, an old rocket and there is no evidence that it was launched by the Russian side. It is highly probable that it was fired by Ukrainian anti-aircraft defense.
– Polish President Andrzej Duda

We have seen nothing that contradicts President Duda’s preliminary assessment that this explosion was most likely the result of a Ukrainian air defense missile that unfortunately landed in Poland.
– US National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson

Donald Trump had ZERO INPUT into this. He not only did not defuse the situation, he inflamed it by insisting that the missile came from Russia.

The Russians, including President Vladimir Putin also had no involvement in the investigation.

Everything that Real Raw News posts should be regarded as FAKE NEWS.

Fact Check : Is Semak.Info A Phishing Website?!

Is the Semak.Info website used to check for GE15 voter information really a phishing website?!

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

 

Claim : Semak.Info Is A Phishing Website!

After the official voter information website by the Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) went down a day before the GE15 election day,, people were advised to try an alternative voter information website called Semak.Info.

However, this warning then went viral later that day, claiming that the Semak.Info website is really a phishing website!

The app.semak.info is a phishing site to track your mobile number. Please be informed. Please do not forward. Thanks.

 

Truth : Semak.Info Is NOT A Phishing Website!

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

Fact #1 : Semak.Info + App.Semak.Info Are Different Pages

First, let me point out that Semak.Info, and App.Semak.Info are two different pages on the same website. Think of them as two different rooms in the same office.

Semak.Info is the public-facing page, where users can check their GE15 voter information. Think of it as the information desk at your office.

 

App.Semak.Info, on the other hand, appears to be the website administrator’s page. Think of it as the back office.

That’s why it has a login page, just like how your back office would have a door with a lock – so that the public can’t just walk inside.

 

Fact #2 : Phishing Websites Masquerade As Genuine Websites

Phishing (pronounced as fishing) is a social engineering attack that attempts to obtain your login information, or personal information like credit card and bank account numbers, etc.

Hackers accomplish this by creating fake websites that look like the real website, to trick you into revealing sensitive information like your bank account login and password, or your security questions.

The Semak.Info page does not ask for any login or critical personal information, so it is not a phishing website.

The App.Semak.Info page is blank, with a simple login function. It does not pretend to be an SPR or banking website, and so it is also not a phishing website.

Fact #3 : Semak.Info Is Owned By DAP

When Semak.Info was first circulated, I too was concerned about this “unknown” website. But a quick check showed that the Democratic Action Party (DAP) was the one promoting its use on Facebook.

I did a little digging, and confirmed that the Semak.Info domain is owned by the Democratic Action Party. It also looked like they bought the domain, and developed the website for GE14, way back in 2017.

Fact #4 : Phone Number Used To Send WhatsApp

Some people asked me why this Semak.Info website would require a phone number, when the official SPR website does not require one to obtain voter information.

What they may not realise is that the DAP team added a WhatsApp messaging feature to their Semak.Info website.

Once you key in your phone number and identity card number, the website will give you your voter information. At the bottom though is a blue Whatsapp [sic] button.

If you click on that button, the website will attempt to send a WhatsApp message to that phone number you keyed in earlier, with key voting information.

It doesn’t automatically send the message. You are given a preview of the message, and you will need to tap on the “Continue to Chat” button to actually send that message to the phone number.

Fact #5 : You Can Use A Fake Phone Number

You may be worried that the DAP team could be harvesting your phone number, and tying it to your identification card number.

Frankly speaking, that kind of data is already easily available and sold (illegally) to marketers and scammers alike. So no one actually needs to “scam” you into keying your phone number.

If you are worried, you can use a fake phone number with this website. Just key in any 7-digit number, with a legitimate 3-digit telco prefix (like 011, 012, 017, 018, etc.), and you are good to go.

Please WATCH OUT about such FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media. They are designed to suppress voter turnout in the 15th General Election.

Regardless of what you may read or see on social media, please take the time and effort to cast your vote. This is not only your right, it is your responsibility as a citizen of Malaysia.

Remember – democracy does not guarantee us a good government. Democracy only guarantees us the right to vote out a bad government!

Were Waxed GE15 Ballots Used To Skew Early Votes?!

Did SPR use waxed paper ballots to skew early votes by soldiers in GE15?!

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

 

Claim : Waxed GE15 Ballots Used To Skew Early Votes!

This warning has gone viral on WhatsApp and social media, claiming that the Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) used waxed paper ballots to skew early votes by soldiers in GE15!

Sharing from Support Invoke group:

Just recently in Sabah, soldiers who have voted early, revealed that, next to the Pakatan Harapan (eye logo) where they draw the “X” was slippery, as if the area was printed with a layer of wax, making the “X” difficult to stick/draw on the ballot paper. So when you do find your ballot paper is like the above mentioned…. request Kerani 3 to replace with a new ballot paper. Everyone be alert & careful!! Remind others too to watch out. Do the necessary to make your vote valid!!

Recommended : Muhyiddin Yassin Claims Jews Want PH To Win GE15!

 

Truth : No Waxed GE15 Ballots Were Used To Skew Early Votes!

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

Fact #1 : Pakatan Harapan Does Not Use Eye Logo

The viral message falsely claimed that Pakatan Harapan uses the eye logo.

Pakatan Harapan’s logo is the word Harapan in white, with a stylised arrow replacing the middle A, on a red background.

The eye logo is actually used by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) because it symbolises the black eye their leader, Anwar Ibrahim received in 1998.

Recommended : Malaysia GE15 Election : Do’s And Don’ts Of Voting!

Fact #2 : PKR Candidates Use PH Logo In Sabah

In October 2022, Anwar Ibrahim stated that Pakatan Harapan member parties will use the red PH logo in Peninsular Malaysia, but leave it to Sabah and Sarawak party leaders to decide whether to use the same logo, or their individual party logos.

However, PKR Sabah chose to use the Pakatan Harapan logo for their candidates. That means the ballot papers for Sabah will show the Pakatan Harapan logo for PKR candidates, as the candidate and logo list for P.167 (Kudat) below shows.

Therefore, it is impossible for any Sabah ballot paper to feature the “eye logo” which is only used by PKR, and not Pakatan Harapan.

In short – the claim that soldiers in Sabah found it hard to vote for Pakatan Harapan / PKR candidates there is false.

Fact #3 : Early Voters Vote Based On Their Own Constituency

Like postal voters, early voters do not vote according to their current location, but according to their constituencies.

That means soldiers in Sabah will vote for their hometown constituencies, unless they opt to change to a different constituency.

Again, this confirms the viral message is lying – the Pakatan Harapan candidates would be using the red PH logo, and not the PKR eye logo.

Fact #4 : Ballpoint Pen + Pencils Have Hard Nibs

The Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) will provide either a ballpoint pen or a pencil in voting booths for your use. You can also bring your own ballpoint pen or pencil.

But unless you intentionally bring your own soft felt tip pen to mark your vote, you will have no problem marking your vote even if the ballot paper was waxed.

That’s because ballpoint pens and pencils have hard nibs, that will scratch through any waxy surface to make a mark on the paper below.

Read more : What Must You Do Before + During GE15 Election?

Fact #5 : No Report Of Waxed Ballot Papers

Early voting in Malaysia was conducted on Tuesday, 15 November 2022. Yet, there has been no report of waxed ballot papers being used in any early voting.

Even if the government was covering up any official reports, police officers and military personnel who encountered such ballot papers would have complained about it on social media, if not to the media.

Fact #6 : Improper Paper Ballots Can Be Exchanged

In the event you encounter any issue with your ballot paper – whether you believe it was tampered with, or was marked in advance, you can complain to the SPR officer in charge of the polling station.

If the SPR officer confirms that there is a problem with the paper ballots, you will receive replacement ballots

Please WATCH OUT about such FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media.

Remember – democracy does not guarantee us a good government. Democracy only guarantees us the right to vote out a bad government!

Malaysia GE15 Election : Do’s And Don’ts Of Voting!

Here is a quick summary of the do’s and don’ts of voting on GE15 – the 15th General Election in Malaysia!

 

Malaysia GE15 Election : Please Do This!

Here is a quick summary of what you should do, when you head out to vote in the 15th General Election on 19 November 2022.

Check Your Voting Details

Before you leave home, please make sure you check your voting details using the SPR Semakan Daftar Pemilih (Electoral Roll Review) page.

At the very least, find out where is your voting centre and its opening and closing hours, which may have changed from the last election.

While this is not necessary, it would be good if you can note down your Saluran (polling station) number. This allows you to avoid checking for your Saluran at the SPR barung, and directly head to the polling station=.

Read more : Must You Print Details + Vote Within 2 Hours?!

Bring Your Original Identification Document

This is the only thing you must absolutely bring with you to vote in GE15 – an original identification document. Here is a list of what is acceptable:

  • MyKad identification card
  • Malaysian passport
  • Malaysian driving licence
  • Temporary identification document (JPN. KPPK09)
  • Official JPN Receipt for Lost Identification Card Report (JPN. KPPK11)

Please do not bring a photocopy of your identification document. It must be the actual identification document.

Wear A Face Mask

Wearing a face mask is mandatory for COVID-19 positive voters.

All other voters do not have to wear a face mask, but it is strongly encouraged to wear one, as it will help prevent any potential infections by COVID-19 positive voters.

Read more : GE15 Voting SOP For COVID-19 Positive Persons!

Practice Safe Distancing

Ensuring a proper physical distance is mandatory for COVID-19 positive voters.

All other voters do not have to maintain a physical distance, but it is strongly encouraged to do so, as it will help prevent any potential infections by COVID-19 positive voters.

Bring Your Mobile Phone

If you are COVID-19 positive, you should bring your mobile phone with MySejahtera installed, so the KKM officer at the voting centre can check your health status.

All other voters do not have to bring a mobile phone, but may do so.

Sanitise Your Hands

After your identity is verified, you will be asked to dip your left index finger into indelible ink.

COVID-19 positive voters MUST sanitise their hands BEFORE dipping their finger into the indelible ink bottle.

All other voters do not have to sanitise their fingers before or after dipping their finger into the ink bottle, but may do so.

It is recommended that you bring your own hand sanitiser, but the SPR will also provide hand sanitisers at the polling station.

Read more : GE15 Guide : What Must Voters Do On Election Day?

Use A Different Hand To Accept Ballot Paper

The indelible ink takes a minute or so to try, so it is recommended that you use a different hand to accept the ballot paper from polling clerk.

This prevents the ballot paper from being stained by the indelible ink. While this will not spoil your vote, it is still best to avoid staining the ballot paper at all.

Check Your Ballot Paper

Depending on your constituency, you will receive one or two ballot papers – white for Parliament, and peach for State.

When the second polling clerk hands you your ballot paper(s), please check to make sure:

  • the ballot papers are printed correctly,
  • they have half a certified SPR stamp and a serial number,
  • they are not torn or damaged in any way, and
  • they are not marked in any way.

If there are any irregularities, point them out to the polling clerk and/or ask the SPR officer for assistance.

Put Your Phone In Silent Mode + Surrender It

Before you go to the voting booth, you MUST place your phone at a designated box on the Polling Centre Head’s desk.

To avoid interruptions, please place your phone on Silent mode, before placing it in the provided box.

Read more : New SPR Rules On Bringing + Using Phone On GE15!

Mark Only Once Per Ballot Paper

It is important that you make only ONE VOTE per ballot paper. If you mark the ballot more than once, it will spoil the vote and your vote will not be counted.

Mark The Ballot With A Cross

Best practice is to mark the empty box next to the candidate or party of your choice with a cross (X).

While the counting clerks will accept other marking like a tick, or even a slash, it’s best to avoid all doubt by marking your choice with a cross (X).

Mark The Ballots With A Pen

Each polling booth will have a pen or pencil, and both are accepted ways of marking your paper ballots.

If you wish to avoid all doubt your vote will not be changed, you are allowed to bring your own pen to mark your paper ballots.

Drop Ballots Into Correct Box

It may seem obvious, the first voter of the day for each polling station may make this mistake, as the voting boxes will be empty.

So please make sure the White ballot paper goes into the box for Parliament, while the Peach ballot paper goes into the box for State.

 

Malaysia GE15 Election : Please Don’t Do This!

Here is a quick summary of what you should NOT do, when you head out to vote in the 15th General Election on 19 November 2022.

Muhyiddin Yassin Claims Jews Want PH To Win GE15!

Is former Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin correct that Jews overseas are praying for Pakatan Harapan to win GE15 so it can Christianise Malaysia?!

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

 

Muhyiddin Yassin : Jews Want Pakatan Harapan To Win GE15!

On Wednesday, 16 November 2022, former Prime Minister of Malaysia and Perikatan Nasional’s candidate for Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin, made a startling claim.

At the Ceramah Mega PN Best event in Parit Jawa, Johor, he claimed that the opposition Pakatan Harapan party was an agent of Jews and Christians who want to Christianise Malaysia.

Here is a rough translated transcript of what he said in a short video clip that went viral on WhatsApp and social media:

His final decision was – don’t pick Barisan Nasional, and never ever vote for Pakatan Harapan. It’s a real danger. Pakatan Harapan is very dangerous.

I read this morning, after my morning prayers, that there is a video that shows a group of Jews (overseas) speaking about Malaysia. In their group, they are praying and talking about ways for Malaysia to “fall” into the hands of the opposition [Pakatan Harapan] that sponsors Jewish and Christian groups.

For me, this is dangerous! This could mean there will be a Christianisation process [of Malaysia]. Didn’t we hear the stories before, of Malays going to church on Sunday in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya. It looks like they converted to Christianity.

I’m not think they will expand quickly because most are us are Muslims. But their agenda is that one day, they will take over Malaysia as one of their colonies. This is one of their long-term strategies.

Maybe we cannot see it now, but not too far in the future, if we are not careful, it can happen. Nauzubillah min zalik (May Allah protect us from that).

Jews May Want PH To Win GE15, But Not To Christianise Malaysia

It is sad, but not unexpected, to see yet another politician use race and religion to stoke fear in a last ditch effort to win an election.

Yes, this is yet another example of political FAKE NEWS, created by a politician to win votes, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Of Jews Praying For PH Win In GE15

Muhyiddin Yassin claimed that he read about a video showing a group of Jews discussing about Malaysia, and praying for Pakatan Harapan to win GE15.

There is no evidence such a video exists. There is also no evidence that is a group of overseas Jews who are praying for a Pakatan Harapan win in GE15, or discussing ways to make that a reality.

The former Prime Minister did not back up his claims with the article or the video, as one would do if it’s true.

A video showing foreigners attempting to interfere in Malaysian politics, would have been DYNAMITE! Yet, the former PM did not use that dynamite…. why?

That’s likely because the video, or the article about such a group of meddling Jews, does not exist.

Fact #2 : Nothing Wrong With Jews Praying For PH Win In GE15

Even if there are Jews overseas praying for Pakatan Harapan to win in GE15, so what? Everyone – whether they are Malaysians or foreigners, is entitled to his/her personal opinions, and preferences.

If these overseas Jews prefer Pakatan Harapan to win, that’s their right. It’s no different from how Malaysians publicly proclaim which American presidential candidate they prefer to win… or whether they prefer Benjamin Netanyahu as Israeli PM, or Naftali Bennett.

As long as the Jews, Christians, Muslims or even atheists overseas are not interfering with the 15th General Election in Malaysia, it’s their right to pray or root for whatever politician or political party in Malaysia they prefer.

Read more : What Must You Do Before + During GE15 Election?

Fact #3 : Jews Are Not Christians, Christians Are Not Jews

I’m shocked that the Muhyiddin Yassin is not aware that Jews are not Christians, and Christians are not Jews.

He apparently claimed that the Jews want Pakatan Harapan to win, in order to Christianise Malaysia. Why on Earth would the Jews want to Christianise Malaysia??? They are Jews, not Christians!

That is like claiming that Star Trek fans want Pakatan Harapan to win, so they can turn Malaysians into Star Wars fans. Can you see how STUPID that is?

Fact #4 : Singapore Did Not Turn Into Christian / Jewish Colony

Muhyiddin Yassin alleged that the Jewish and Christian agenda is to turn Malaysia into a Jewish and/or Christian colony.

This appears to be an attempt to weaponise Malaysia’s past as a British colony, and he did not offer any evidence to back up this “nefarious plot”.

The problem with that claim is that – we have “evidence” in the form of Singapore, that it will not happen.

Singapore used to be part of Malaysia, before leaving the federation in 1965. Despite its common roots with Malaysia, Singapore has been ruled by the People’s Action Party – whose Malaysian equivalent would be DAP (Democratic Action Party), which is a member of Pakatan Harapan.

Yet, there is no evidence that Singapore has turned into a Christian or Jewish colony of any kind. Muslims in Singapore have the same rights as Muslims in Malaysia to practice their faith.

Fact #5 : Race + Religion Are The Refuge Of The Incompetent

Race and religion are often used by incompetent politicians to win votes, because they are bereft of ideas and/or abilities.

Good politicians will SHOW YOU what they did for the country, and tell you HOW they can help further improve the country.

Bad politicians can’t do that, so they have to rely on scaring you with false claims of attacks on your race and religion, so you will vote for them even though they have proven to be corrupt and/or incompetent.

So whenever a politician starts badmouthing someone’s race and/or religion, that should set off a red flag – what is he/she trying to hide?

Please WATCH OUT about such FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media.

Remember – democracy does not guarantee us a good government. Democracy only guarantees us the right to vote out a bad government!

Did US Military Sentence Stephane Bancel To Death?!

Did the US military just convict Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death?!

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

 

Claim : US Military Sentenced Stephane Bancel To Death!

On 15 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that a US military tribunal just convicted Moderna CEO, Stéphane Bancel, and sentenced him to death!

It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

The U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps and Office of Military Commissions had difficulty finding three impartial panelists to hear evidence against Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel, for every interviewee knew someone whose life the vaccine had shattered—or killed. Following a weeklong search, JAG picked the three—two male Marine Corps officers and a female Navy captain—who expressed the least ill will toward Bancel. Nonetheless, they found Bancel guilty of murder five minutes after Vice Adm. Darse E. Crandall rested JAG’s case and implored the panel to deliver upon Bancel a punishment commensurate to the damage his vaccines had caused the world.

 

Truth : US Military Did NOT Sentence Stephane Bancel To Death!

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

Everything that Real Raw News posts 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 that will go viral, and generate him money.

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

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of Stephane Bancel’s Arrest

Only Real Raw News has published his fantastical account of US special forces arresting Stéphane Bancel outside a DC restaurant. That’s because Michael Baxter / Tiffin made it up.

Naturally, there is no news from any legitimate news outlet, or the US military, about Stephane Bancel’s arrest and sentencing.

How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story”?

Read more : Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel Arrested For Vaccine Fraud?

A March 2018 screenshot of Michael Tuffin, who goes by the pseudonym Michael Baxter

Fact #3 : Moderna Is A Public-Listed Company

Moderna is a public-listed company, and is traded on the Nasdaq as MRNA. Its shareholders would have to be informed if their company CEO was really arrested, and sentenced to death.

It is NOT POSSIBLE to keep quiet and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s not even legal to cover up such an event from the shareholders.

Fact #4 : Stéphane Bancel + Moderna Issued A Press Statement

On Thursday, November 16, 2022 – one day after Real Raw News published that fake story, Moderna announced positive results for its two bivalent vaccines targeting the Omicron variant of COVID-19 – mRNA-1273.214, and mRNA-1273.222.

Instead of being incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay, as Michael Baxter/Tiffin claimed, Stephane Bancel announced from Cambridge, Massachusetts that:

We are pleased to see that both of our bivalent booster vaccine candidates offer superior protection against Omicron BA.4/BA.5 variants compared to our original booster, which is encouraging given COVID-19 remains a leading cause of hospitalisation and death globally. In addition, the superior response against Omicron persisted for at least three months after the mRNA-1273.214 booster.

Only Michael Baxter / Tiffin can persist with such a stupid lie, and only his idiotic fans will continue to believe his fake stories.

Fact #5 : Only Enemy Combatants Are Detained At Gitmo

It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that a US military tribunal in Gitmo (Guantanamo Bay) convicted Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death.

The Guantanamo Bay prison is only used to detain high-value enemy combatants. Stephane Bancel is not an enemy combatant by any military or legal definition, and would never be detained there.

If Stephane Bancel really committed a crime in the United States, he would have been brought to trial in an American court.

Fact #6 : US Military Tribunals Are Only For Foreign Combatants

It is also stupid for Real Raw News to claim that Bancel was trialed and convicted as an enemy combatant in a military tribunal, when he is a French civilian.

Military tribunals in the United States can only be conducted for members of enemy forces during wartime. The United States is not at war with France.

Needless to say – Stephane Bancel is also not in the French military, so even if he was arrested, there is no way he would be tried in a military tribunal.

Fact #7 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

It is also hilarious that Real Raw News readers actually believe the bullshit that someone sentenced to death would be executed just days later.

That may be possible in a country like North Korea, but certainly not in the United States

Death row inmates in the United States wait an average of 178 months – about 15 years after their sentencing, before they are executed.

In fact, none of the six Gitmo inmates charged with capital crime in the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and the attack on USS Cole in 2000, have actually been trialled to date, never mind convicted and sentenced to death.

Fact #8 : Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Under FDA Regulatory Oversight

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was confirmed to be safe and effective, after it successfully concluded its clinical trials with an efficacy of 94.5% against symptomatic COVID-19 infection, in a large study involving over 30,000 participants.

The VRBPAC committee vetted and discussed the study findings on 17 December 2020, and recommended that the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine receive its Emergency Use Authorisation, which the FDA granted on 18 December 2020.

Like ALL other vaccines, the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was under FDA regulatory oversight. If Moderna lied about their results, the FDA would not have continued to re-issue or amend its EUA and full approval time and time again.

What Must You Do Before + During GE15 Election?

Find out what must you do before GE15 – the 15th General Election in Malaysia, and on election day itself!

 

What Should You Do Before GE15 Election Day?

Thanks to the Undi18 constitutional amendments that expanded voting rights for Malaysian citizens from 15 December 2021 onwards:

  • the minimum voting age was reduced to 18 years
  • automatic voter registration – all eligible voters would be automatically registered and allowed to vote

There is no longer a need for you to register to vote, but you should check your voting details at least one day before Election Day.

Use the SPR Semakan Daftar Pemilih (Electoral Roll Review) page, which will give you important information like:

  • Pusat Mengundi : Location of your voting centre
  • Saluran : Your assigned polling station at the voting centre
  • Bilangan : The number of voters assigned to that polling station
  • Masa Mengundi : Voting time for your voting centre
  • Masa Keluar Mengundi Yang Digalakkan : Recommended time to go vote
  • Hari Mengundi : Election day

While it is not necessary to print those details, if you can write them down and bring them to the voting centre, it will help the election clerks speed up your registration.

Read more : Must You Print Details + Vote Within 2 Hours?!

 

What Must Voters Bring On GE15 Election Day?

The only thing voters MUST bring is one of these identification documents, in order to qualify to vote on Election Day:

  • MyKad identification card
  • Malaysian passport
  • Malaysian driving licence
  • Temporary identification document (JPN. KPPK09)
  • Official JPN Receipt for Lost Identification Card Report (JPN. KPPK11)

In addition to their identification document, COVID-19 positive persons MUST also bring:

  • a face mask that is worn at all times, except during the facial identification process
  • a smartphone with MySejahtera installed, for KKM officers to check your COVID-19 status

These are recommended (not necessary) items that voters may choose to bring:

  • your own hand sanitiser – recommended for COVID-19 voters
  • your own pen – recommended for COVID-19 voters
  • your own tissue paper – to wipe off any excess indelible ink

 

What Voters Cannot Bring On GE15 Election Day?

Voters are NOT allowed to bring any item (like umbrellas, bags, and caps) with the name of any electoral candidate, or the symbol of any political party, into the voting centre.

Voters are also NOT allowed to wear clothes that have the name of any electoral candidate, or the symbol of any political party.

Read more : Is There A Dress Code For GE15 Election Voters?!

 

What Should Voters Do On GE15 Election Day?

Step 1 : Once you arrive at your voting centre, you can either :

  • head directly to your Saluran (polling station), if you already know your Saluran number, or
  • ask the SRP Barung agent there to check your Saluran number.

Step 2 : Queue outside your assigned Saluran, for your turn to enter the polling station.

Please note that you are NOT allowed to use your phone at the polling station.

Step 3 : Once the police officer at the polling station lets you in, you need to hand over your identification document (e.g. MyKad) to the first polling clerk.

Read more : New SPR Rules On Bringing + Using Phone On GE15!

Step 4 : The polling clerk will verify your details against the electoral roll, and perform a visual identification.

At this point, COVID-19 positive voters must pull down their face masks. Please take care to stand at a distance, and avoid speaking, and quickly put the face mask on after the clerk confirms your identity.

Step 4 : The polling clerk will then ask you to show both your hands, to confirm that you do not have any fingers marked with the indelible ink – evidence that you have not voted yet.

Step 5 : The first polling clerk will hand your identification document to the second polling clerk, and loudly call out your identification card / passport number and name. Please make sure that they are both correct.

Step 6 : You will be asked to move to the second polling clerk, who will hand your identification document back to you.

Step 7 : The second polling clerk will ask you to put out your left index (second) finger, to dip into the indelible ink bottle.

COVID-19 positive voters MUST sanitise their hands BEFORE dipping their left index fingers into the indelible ink bottle.

Read more : Must You Sanitise Hands After Dipping In Indelible Ink?!

Step 8 : Head to the next table where the third polling clerk will hand you your folded paper ballot(s).

You will get a white ballot for Parliament, but you may not receive a peach ballot for state – it depends on your constituency.

Just in case the indelible ink on your left index finger is still wet, take your paper ballots using your right hand.

Step 9 : You will now be asked to head to the table of the Polling Station Head (Ketua Tempat Mengundi, KTM), to deposit your mobile phone in the provided box.

Step 10 : You can now proceed to the voting booth, where you can now unfold the paper ballots.

Although ink smudges will not void your vote, try to unfold your paper ballots once the indelible ink has dried on your left index finger.

Step 11 : Choose your candidate by marking each paper ballot ONCE with an X in the empty box on the far right using the provided pen, or your own pen.

Step 12 : Fold the paper ballots once you are done, before you leave the voting booth.

Step 13 : Drop your paper ballots into the respective polling boxes for Parliament (white) and State (peach).

Step 14 : Collect your mobile phone from the table of the Polling Station Head (KTM).

Step 15 : You can leave the polling station, and the voting centre.

GE15 : 4PM to 6PM Reserved For COVID-19 Voters?!

Is the 4 PM to 6 PM time slot reserved for only COVID-19 positive voters in GE15, because that’s the only time they are allowed to vote?!

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

 

Claim : 4 PM – 6 PM Is Only For COVID-19 Voters In GE15

People are sharing claims that 4 PM to 6 PM is reserved exclusively for COVID-19 positive voters, with others claiming that COVID-19 positive voters can only vote during that time slot.

Here is one example on social media:

Please go out and vote before 4.00 p.m.

4.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m. is for Covid positive people to vote.

GE15: EC issues guidelines for Covid-19 voters

Recommended : Are GE15 Time Slots Meant To Let In Phantom Voters?!

 

Truth : 4 PM – 6 PM Is NOT Only For COVID-19 Voters In GE15

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

Fact #1 : GE15 Voting Hours Are Fixed On Election Day

First, let me establish some basic facts about the voting hours on GE15 – the 15th General Election.

Voting hours for GE15 are fixed from 8 AM until 6 PM, in Peninsular Malaysia, and from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM in Sabah and Sarawak.

As long as you get to the polling centre by those times, no one can deny you entry or the right to vote on election day, the 19th of November 2022.

That said, the SPR can gazette different closing times for different closing times for different polling centres, especially in the rural areas.

So please check the correct opening hours for your polling centre using this SPR link.

Fact #2 : COVID-19 Positive Voters Are Allowed To Vote

COVID-19 positive voters are not pariahs, but fellow citizens who just happened to be infected with COVID-19.

The SPR has stated that they have the same rights as other citizens in voting during the 15th general election.

They just have to follow some simple and common sense rules when they go to vote on 19 November 2022.

Read more : GE15 SOP + Process For COVID-19 Positive Voters!

Fact #3 : COVID-19 Positive Voters Are At ANY TIME

COVID-19 positive voters do NOT have to only vote from 4 PM to 6 PM, as some people are alleging.

They can go and vote at the official opening hours of their voting centre. If their voting centre opens at 7:30 AM, they can vote as early as 7:30 AM.

There are no restrictions on when COVID-19 positive voters can vote, as long as it is within the GE15 stipulated voting hours.

Fact #4 : 4 PM – 6 PM Are NOT Reserved For COVID-19 Positive Voters

There is no exclusive 4 PM to 6 PM time slot for COVID-19 positive voters, as some people are alleging.

All voters, even if they are not COVID-19 positive, can go and vote between 4 PM to 6 PM, as long as their voting centres are still open.

Some voting centres, especially in rural areas, may close early, so please refer to each voting centre’s official opening hours.

Recommended : Are GE15 Time Slots Meant To Let In Phantom Voters?!

Fact #5 : SPR Recommends COVID-19 Positive Voters To Come 2 Hours Before Closing

The Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) is merely recommending that COVID-19 positive voters come two hours before each centre’s closing time.

That means 4 PM to 6 PM for Peninsular Malaysia, and 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM for Sabah and Sarawak.

This is merely a RECOMMENDATION, and is NOT A REQUIREMENT. Just in case there’s any confusion, here is the official statement in Malay, and my English translation:

Pengundi positif COVID-19 digalakkan untuk keluar mengundi 2 jam sebelum tamat tempoh pengundian pusat mengundi masing-masing.

COVID-19 positive voters are encouraged to vote 2 hours before the end of voting at each voting centre.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Positive Voters Are Given Priority At ALL TIMES

Whenever a COVID-19 positive voter turns up to vote, a Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) officer will escort him/her to the polling station.

Once at the polling station, the COVID-19 positive voter is given priority to vote first, to minimise exposure to other people waiting there.

This personal escort + voting priority is not limited to 4 PM to 6 PM, but throughout Election Day.

In fact, this system of escorting COVID-19 positive voters and giving them priority to vote first is only necessary because there is NO EXCLUSIVE TIME SLOT for them.

Please WATCH OUT about such FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media. They are designed to suppress voter turnout in the 15th General Election.

Regardless of what you may read or see on social media, please take the time and effort to cast your vote. This is not only your right, it is your responsibility as a citizen of Malaysia.

Remember – democracy does not guarantee us a good government. Democracy only guarantees us the right to vote out a bad government!

Will Ink Smudges From SPR Stamp Void Your Vote?!

Will ink smudges from the SPR stamp on your ballot paper void your vote?!

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

 

Claim : Ink Smudges From SPR Stamp Will Void Your Vote!

A video has gone viral on WhatsApp and social media, claiming that any ink smudges from the SPR stamp on your ballot paper will void your vote!

The video is in Bahasa Malaysia, so here is my rough English translation of what the man in the video said:

Peace unto you. This incident happened at the Sekolah Padang Besar Selatan voting centre, where the SPR official folded the paper while the SPR stamp here wasn’t dry.

When the ballot paper is folded like so, the SPR stamp will smudge the voting box for the BN candidate.

By folding the ballot paper this way, the SPR stamp will leave ink smudges in the box for the BN candidate.

If you mark X on any other candidate, the vote will be considered a spoilt vote. But if you mark X on the BN candidate, it will remain a valid vote.

This is a tactic that they are using, so please make sure the ballot paper is not folded. After voting, if you want to fold the ballot paper, fold it this way (so it doesn’t cover the SPR stamp).

If you cover the ballot paper this way, your vote will not be split. Thank you.

 

Truth : Ink Smudges From SPR Stamp Will NOT Void Your Vote!

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

Fact #1 : Early Voting Only Started For Security Personnel

First, I should point out that early voting for police and military personnel and their spouses only started yesterday – Tuesday, 15 November, 2022.

This early voting only occurs in police contingent and district headquarters, as well as military camps, so the claim that this incident happened at the Padang Besar Selatan school is false.

Schools across Malaysia have not yet been converted into voting centres. That will only happen on Friday, 18 November 2022, just in time for the 15th General Election the next day.

Fact #2 : Ink Smudges From SPR Stamp Will Not Void Any Vote

The Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) stated on Wednesday, 16 November 2022, that ink smudges will not void any vote.

SPR also pointed out that voting clerks have been instructed to fold the ballot paper horizontally, to avoid smearing of the stamp.

But in the event the ballot paper was folded vertically, causing ink smears from the stamp, the vote will still count.

The most important thing is that the voter clearly marks his/her choice – this will be accepted by the counting clerk, and verified by observers watching them.

Fact #3 : Ink Smudges Won’t Necessarily Benefit BN Candidate

While sample ballot papers always show three candidates, the truth is – there may be many candidates. In fact, in GE15, 10 candidates are fighting for the Batu parliamentary seat!

So this “tactic” will result in ink smudges that smear the voting box of multiple candidates, and not necessarily the BN candidate. As you can tell – this is an illogical way to cheat.

Please WATCH OUT about such FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media. They are designed to suppress voter turnout in the 15th General Election.

Regardless of what you may read or see on social media, please take the time and effort to cast your vote. This is not only your right, it is your responsibility as a citizen of Malaysia.

Remember – democracy does not guarantee us a good government. Democracy only guarantees us the right to vote out a bad government!

Happy voting on 19 November 2022!

Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique : Death Not From Vaccine!

Find out why 10 year-old Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique tragically collapsed and died suddenly in school, and why she did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

 

Claim : Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Anti-vaccination activists are claiming that 10 year-old Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique collapsed and died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique, 10 RIP

“A fit and healthy girl aged just 10 years old suddenly died after she collapsed at school.” “believed to have sufferred brain hemorrage”

#DiedSuddenly #VaccineDeaths #NoAmnesty #CrimesAgainstHumanity #Genocide #Nuremberg2 #NeverForget

Something not adding up. The words “fit and healthy” and “dies suddenly” should not be in the same sentence.

I hope this makes more people start wondering why so many children are ‘dying suddenly’ There is something very wrong going on here 🙁

Truth : Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Did NOT Die From Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all child deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

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

But before I start, I would like to point out that it is unbelievable how low they would go. They didn’t even bat an eye in lying about a young girl’s death. They have no shame at all.

Fact #1 : Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Died From Brain Haemorrhage

10 year-old Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique collapsed in her school on Wednesday, 9 November 2022, and was taken to the Pindersfield Hospital in Wakefield.

She was later transferred to the Leeds General Infirmary where she died in the early hours of Monday morning, 14 November 2022.

As she was of the Muslim faith, her funeral took place that very day – at 1 PM, at the Jamie Masjid Swafia mosque in Wakefield, followed by a burial service at the Wakefield Cemetery.

A family spokesperson said that it was believed that Rai-Lèyah suffered a brain haemorrhage.

So let me be clear – Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique died from a brain haemorrhage, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Was Healthy

Rai-Lèyah was described as a fit and healthy girl, which would rule out myocarditis – which antivaxxers often blame for any sudden death of a child.

If Rai-Lèyah had been suffering from myocarditis, she would have had noticeable symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, etc.

Recommended : Britney Spears : Nerve Damage NOT From Vaccine!

Fact #3 : Brain Haemorrhage Occurs Suddenly

A brain haemorrhage (also known as a cerebral haemorrhage) is a type of stroke that occurs when an artery in the brain ruptures and causes a loss of blood supply to the affected part of the brain.

The blood that pools in the brain not only increases pressure on the surrounding tissues, it irritates and causes them to swell as well – a condition known as cerebral oedema.

The pressure from the pooled blood (known as a haematoma) further cuts off blood supply, and kills even more brain cells. If not quickly removed or relieved, brain herniation may occur, eventually killing the person.

A brain haemorrhage is a sudden and extremely serious medical emergency that quickly results in the person losing consciousness and collapsing – precisely what happened to Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique.

Fact #4 : Childhood Brain Haemorrhage Is Quite Common

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that children do not die from brain haemorrhage.

The truth is – stroke is among the top 10 causes of death in childhood, with haemorrhagic stroke accounting for about half the deaths.

Based on a 2003 study of a California-wide hospital discharge database, the incidence of childhood stroke is about 2.3 cases per 100,000 children every year.

The United Kingdom has about 14.4 million children (under the age of 18), so roughly there should be about 33,120 cases of childhood stroke every year, of which approximately 15,840 are brain haemorrhages.

Haemorrhagic stroke in children is devastating, with approximately 25% of cases ending in death, and 42% of those who survive have to live with significant disability.

Fact #5 : Vaccines Cannot Cause A Brain Haemorrhage

Just in case there is any doubt – no, vaccines cannot cause a brain haemorrhage.

No matter how magical you believe vaccines are, they cannot go into your brain and cause an artery to burst.

Brain haemorrhages are often caused by trauma, but this is unlikely since Bill did not get hit on his head with a hockey stick.

Therefore, it is likely that he may have an aneurysm or even an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), both of which can present without symptoms for a lifetime, but can suddenly burst.

Fact #6 : Unknown If Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Rai-Lèyah Parveen Saddique was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that she died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Casey Barr, who claims to live around the corner from Rai-Lèyah, claimed that Rai-Lèyah was unvaccinated. But frankly – there is no way to know for sure, unless her family reveals her vaccination status.

Rai-Lèyah could very well be unvaccinated, as the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

What Aaron Carter’s Last Texts To Sonya Cruz Reveal!

Take a look at the last text messages between Aaron Carter and Sonya Cruz, and find out what they reveal!

 

Aaron Carter Texted Sonya Cruz Before He Died

The last time anyone saw Aaron Carter alive was 2 AM on Friday, November 4, 2022 – just one day before he was found dead.

At that time, the police came to conduct a welfare check. His housekeeper – a formerly homeless Ghanaian woman known only as Betty, opened the door, but Aaron told them to leave and asked his housekeeper not to bother him.

The housekeeper did not see Aaron Carter all day Friday, but on Saturday morning, she went to his bedroom door to see if he wanted coffee.

That’s when she heard his dog inside the bedroom going crazy. When she opened the door, she found Aaron’s body in the tub, with the water jets still running.

She called the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department at around 11 AM on Saturday, November 5, to report that she found him drowned in his tub.

But what we didn’t know earlier was that swimsuit model, Sonya Cruz, was the last person to communicate with Aaron Carter, just hours before he died.

Read more : Aaron Carter : New Sudden Death Details Revealed!

 

What Aaron Carter’s Last Texts To Sonya Cruz Reveal!

On Monday, 14 November 2022, Sonya Cruz revealed that Aaron Carter texted her in the hours leading to his death, asking her to go over. He even offered to pay for her Uber and drive her back later.

His Instagram messages to her were quite revealing – he sounded intoxicated, literally “slurring” in his texts.

You shouodnsee me soon

ASAP

Like tomorrow

My placeee

Ok sweetheart

Or you could just coke now

Come**

I’ll Uber you and drive you back whatever.

The 24 year-old swimsuit model replied that they would “talk tomorrow after you get up“, and signed off with “xox“.

That would never happen because he would be found dead next morning, surrounded by compressed air cans used for huffing.

His PR aide, Holly Davidson, later revealed that Aaron Carter had been huffing computer duster spray.

The odd syntax and typos in his messages strongly suggest that Aaron Carter was intoxicated on inhalants from the compressed air cans while he was typing them to Sonya Cruz.

Sonya did not seem to realise that Aaron was high on inhalants, or perhaps, she was just used to it. She has only known Carter for a few months, but told DailyMail that she regretted “not spending more time when he would ask to“.

I do regret not spending more time when he would ask to. I just had no idea something like this would happen and and did think he would always be in my life.

He was a complete angel and very kind. May he rest in peace.

The messages also suggest that while Aaron Carter may have his mental health issues, he was not suicidal. If nothing else, he was looking forward to meeting up with Sonya Cruz the next day.

Until his deferred autopsy results are revealed, all evidence so far points to an accidental overdose of inhalant as Aaron Carter’s cause of death. Certainly not the COVID-19 vaccine as many antivaxxers are claiming.

Forecasts Predict Pakatan Harapan Victory In GE15?!

Are many think tanks including the US government predicting a Pakatan Harapan victory in GE15 – the 15th General Election?!

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

 

Claim : Forecasts Predict Pakatan Harapan Victory In GE15?!

On Tuesday, 15 November 2022, this message went viral on WhatsApp, claiming that many think tanks in Malaysia issued forecasts that Pakatan Harapan will win the most seats in GE15!

O2 = BN 42, PN 43, PH 91

Ilham = BN 39, PN 46, PH 87

Merdeka = BN 35, PN 56, PH 98

Indonesia Intel = BN 37, PN 50, PH 94

US Embassy= BN 35, PN 48, PH 94

ASEAN = BN 32, PN 51, PH 108

 

Truth : Forecasts Do NOT Predict Pakatan Harapan Victory In GE15?!

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

Fact #1 : Early Voting Only Started Today

First, I should point out that early voting for police and military personnel and their spouses only started today – Tuesday, 15 November, 2022.

Just over 265,000 were allowed to vote early, consisting of 146,737 military personnel and their spouses, and 118,794 police personnel and their spouses.

Fact #2 : Impossible To Use Polls Of Early Voters

As this early voting only occurs in police contingent and district headquarters, as well as military camps, it is impossible for any think tank to conduct exit polls.

Even if they did, this group only makes up 1.2% of Malaysia’s 21 million registered voters, and would not readily represent the voting patterns of the electorate.

Therefore, no think tank – even if they bothered to conduct an extensive exit poll of these early voters – would dare to issue any forecast of the GE15 results.

Fact #3 : No Think Tank Has Issued GE15 Forecasts

Let me just state this – the list of think tanks or research firms predicting a Pakatan Harapan victory in GE15 is false. No think tank has issued such GE15 forecasts.

It is really absurd that people would believe that anyone would issue a forecast before Election Day on 19 November 2022.

Think tanks and research firms like O2 Research Malaysia can conduct polls, but as this recent example shows – they do not predict winners or losers.

Their polls are also based on a relatively small sample that may give us a good idea of the Malaysian population’s voting preferences, but that may not translate into votes – the people polled may end up not voting, or may change their minds later.

Fact #4 : PDRM Is Apolitical

The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) is an apolitical organisation that is part of the Malaysian civil service.

Therefore, it is ridiculous to claim that it would conduct political research, and that its Bukit Aman headquarters would actually issue a forecast that Pakatan Harapan would win the most seats in GE15.

Fact #5 : Foreign Countries Do Not Forecast Malaysian Elections

I should also point out that it is ludicrous to claim that ASEAN, as well as the Indonesian and US governments issued their forecast that Pakatan Harapan will win the 15th General Election in Malaysia.

As a general rule, foreign governments do not issue public forecasts of another country’s politics or elections. That would be considered as foreign interference in a democratic process.

Needless to say – the Indonesian and US governments never issued such GE15 election forecasts.

As for ASEAN, it has a long-standing police of “non-interference in the internal affairs of member nations“. In any case, ASEAN is a pretty toothless and almost inconsequential association.

On top of that – Malaysia is a member of ASEAN. What makes you think the Malaysian government would agree to ASEAN conducting research into its electorate, and actually releasing a forecast that the opposition would win?

Please WATCH OUT about such FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media. They are designed to suppress voter turnout in the 15th General Election.

Regardless of what you may read or see on social media, please take the time and effort to cast your vote. This is not only your right, it is your responsibility as a citizen of Malaysia.

Remember – democracy does not guarantee us a good government. Democracy only guarantees us the right to vote out a bad government!

Are GE15 Time Slots Meant To Let In Phantom Voters?!

Are the recommended time slots for voting in GE15 designed to let in phantom voters?!

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

 

Claim : GE15 Voting Time Slots Are Meant To Let In Phantom Voters!

This message has gone viral on WhatsApp, claiming that the SPR recommended time slots for voting in GE15 is meant to block you from voting, so they can send in phantom voters!

As forwarded..

Guys, DON’T BE FOOLED by the time slot as they might send in phantom voters in your name and vote for you, DENYING YOU YOUR CHANCE TO VOTE! Just go as early as you can! These are tactics that they are using to prevent voter turnout! After you are done voting, you can offer to ferry your friends and family to their voting stations too!

If I’m the ruling govt, I will set all your preferred times to THE SAME TIME SLOT ie. 3pm to 5pm so that ALL OF YOU turn up and crowd the stations, queuing snake long queues till voting time cutoff, then those still in the queue will NOT BE ABLE TO CAST THEIR VOTES!

GO EARLY! As with all the years you have done! Once you’ve casted your vote, you can be useful to assist others or assist at polling stations if the PACAs need help. Don’t be part of the herd mentality to follow what a backdoor govt dictates to you under a ‘recommended voting time.’

Recommended : New Pakatan Harapan Logo On GE15 Ballot Papers?!

 

Truth : GE15 Voting Time Slots Won’t Allow Phantom Voters In!

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

Fact #1 : GE15 Voting Hours Are Fixed On Election Day

First, let me establish some basic facts about the voting hours on GE15 – the 15th General Election.

Voting hours for GE15 are fixed from 8 AM until 6 PM, in Peninsular Malaysia, and from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM in Sabah and Sarawak.

As long as you get to the polling centre by those times, no one can deny you entry or the right to vote on election day, the 19th of November 2022.

That said, the SPR can gazette different closing times for different closing times for different polling centres, especially in the rural areas.

So please check the correct opening hours for your polling centre using this SPR link.

Fact #2 : Recommended Time Slot Meant To Avoid Overcrowding

The viral message falsely claims that the recommended voting time slot is meant to force people to crowd at the end of voting hours.

The two-hour recommended voting time slot is merely a suggestion, as part of the Election Commission (SPR)’s effort to avoid overcrowding at the polling centres.

Typically, there is a tendency for people to rush to vote in the early morning, leading to long queues. While it was acceptable in past elections, it’s a health risk during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Therefore, the SPR is trying to minimise crowding by spacing voters out into 2 hour time slots. Even then, it is merely a recommendation, not a rule.

It is up to you to follow their recommendation, or come whenever it’s convenient.

Recommended : Must You Follow Specific Voting Time On GE15?!

Fact #3 : Recommended Time Slot Varies From Person To Person

The viral message falsely claimed that the government set the recommended time slot to 3 PM to 5 PM, in an effort to force overcrowding and to prevent you from voting.

From what I have personally seen, there appears to be four time slots:

  • 8 AM to 10 AM
  • 10 AM to 12 PM
  • 1 PM to 3 PM
  • 3 PM to 5 PM

The recommended 2-hour period varies from person to person, and is not set to the same 3-5 PM time slot, as alleged.

Fact #4 : Last Time Slot Leaves Plenty Of Time To Vote

The last time slot of 3 PM to 5 PM still leaves voters with an hour to enter the voting centre to vote.

Voting does not stop at 5 PM sharp. The voting centre will stop letting people in at 6 PM (Peninsular Malaysia) or 5:30 PM (Sabah and Sarawak), but once you are in, you are allowed to vote.

So even if you follow the recommended 3 PM to 5 PM time slot, and arrive at 5 PM, you still have one hour to saunter into the voting centre to vote.

Each voting centre will usually have multiple polling stations (Saluran), because the SPR has stipulated that each polling station can only accommodate a maximum of 750 voters, to ensure that waiting time is minimal.

In addition, special voting stations for senior citizens and people with special needs are limited to just 450 voters each.

In other words – as long as you head over to the voting centre with one hour to spare, you should have no issue casting your vote before the voting centre even closes its doors.

Fact #5 : No Evidence Of Phantom Voters

Claims of phantom voters committing election fraud are rife at every Malaysian general election, but there has been no evidence of phantom voters.

That’s because the voting process itself is being observed by volunteers working as observers or polling / counting agents (PACA) from different political parties. This ensures that there are no shenanigans during voting, including phantom voters.

Even if you arrived late and are not able to vote, no one can take your place to vote, because once the voting time has ceased, the ballot boxes are sealed and sent to the counting centres.

New SPR Rules On Bringing + Using Phone On GE15!

The Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) just issued a notice on new rules on bringing and using your phone during GE15 – the 15th General Election!

 

SPR : You Cannot Use Your Phone Inside GE15 Polling Station

At around 10 PM on Monday, 14 November 2022, the Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) issued new rules on how voters can use their phone when they go to vote in the 15th General Election.

You are allowed to bring a phone or smartphone with you to the voting centre. However, you are forbidden from using your phone once you get to the polling station (Saluran) – the room in which you will receive and mark your voting ballot.

SPR will place notices and posters warning against the use of phones or smartphones inside and outside every GE15 voting room. Here is the official SPR statement, with my English translation:

Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya Malaysia (SPR) telah memaklumkan kepada semua pengundi bahawa penggunaan telefon bimbit di tempat mengundi (saluran) adalah tidak dibenarkan. Sebagai peringatan, notis atau poster larangan penggunaan telefon bimbit akan diletakkan di luar dan di dalam tempat mengundi.

The Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) has informed all voters that the use of mobile phones at polling stations (Saluran) is forbidden. As a reminder, notices or posters prohibiting the use of mobile phones will be placed outside and inside the polling station.

This SPR decision will help prevent anyone from taking photos of voters making their choices, and reduce the potential for vote buying and election fraud.

 

SPR : You Must Surrender Your Phone Before Voting In GE15!

SPR also officially stated that you must place your phone in the provided area on the table of the Ketua Tempat Mengundi (Head of the Polling Station).

After marking and casting your vote, you will then retrieve your phone / smartphone from the KTM’s table, before leaving the polling station.

Here is the official SPR statement, with my English translation:

SPR telah menetapkan bahawa pengundi yang membawa telefon bimbit ke tempat mengundi perlu meletakkan telefon bimbit di tempat yang telah disediakan setelah menerima kertas undi dan mengambilnya semula setelah selesai mengundi.

SPR has ordered that voters who carry mobile phones to the polling station must put the mobile phone in the provided place after receiving the ballot papers and retrieve it after they have finished voting.

This SPR decision will help prevent anyone from accidentally or intentionally taking photos of their votes / ballot papers, and hopefully, prevent vote buying.

Anthony Rumble Johnson : Cause of Death Not Vaccine!

Did former UFC fighter, Anthony Rumble Johnson, die from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?!

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

 

Claim : Anthony Rumble Johnson Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Anthony Rumble Johnson died at just 38 years of age, anti-vaccination activists immediately claim that the former UFC fighter died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Was two-time UFC title challenger Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson death caused by the DEATHVAX?

An elite athlete dropping dead at 38 is about as rare these days as the surge in FIFA soccer players dropping dead like flies on the pitch. Except since the “vaccine” rollout its not rare.

We should talk about how Anthony Rumble Johnson #rumble

Was killed by the COVID vaccines.

“Former UFC fighter Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson dies at 38”

Truth : Anthony Rumble Johnson Did NOT Die From Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : His Cause Of Death Was Organ Failure From Lymphoma

Anthony Rumble Johnson (born Anthony Kewoa Johnson on March 6, 1984), was an American mixed martial artist competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

On Monday, November 14, 2022, MMA journalist Ariel Halwani broke the news that Anthony “Rumble” Johnson passed away that day, after Anthony’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz cryptically tweeted that he was “heartbroken”.

While some news media said that his cause of death was unknown or undetermined, Anthony Rumble Johnson’s cause of death was organ failure due to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis.

In other words, he died from organ failure brought about by cancer of his white blood cells, as well as an autoimmune disorder in which his white blood cells attacked other blood cells.

Anthony Rumble Johnson did NOT die from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect, period.

Fact #2 : He Was Battling With Lymphoma For Over A Year

Anthony Rumble Johnson was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma sometime in 2021.

His condition deteriorated so much he asked his fans for prayers, and wondered if he would make it to 2022, in an emotional Instagram post on September 19, 2021.

Really wish I could go into detail about how ill I truly am. Just know I need as many prayers as I can get and I’ll see you in 2022 God willing…

Never been this afraid of anything in my life but I’ve remained strong with the support of friends and family.

Not asking for anything but prayers 🙏🏾
See you in 2022 hopefully 💪🏾
This is gonna be a battle and I’m gonna have to dig deeper than I ever have before.
Love you all
#RumbleSquad
NOT COVID

In October 2022, his manager, Ali Abdelaziz said that Anthony was “not doing well”, and asked for prayers.

Pray for Anthony, he’s not doing well. He’s very strong, spiritually, but pray for him.

Anthony, be strong. A lot of people love you. He’s going to be okay, but he’s not doing well.

Recommended : Keith Farmer : Victim of Vaccine Sudden Death Hoax!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Anthony Rumble Johnson Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Anthony “Rumble” Johnson was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #4 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

Santino Blanco : Why Face of AR Vaccine Effort Died

Santino Godoy Blanco – the 4 year-old face of Argentina’s child vaccination campaign tragically died.

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

 

Claim : Santino Godoy Blanco Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Santino Godoy Blanco fell sick and died, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the poster boy for Argentina’s child vaccination campaign died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Heartbreaking: Santino Blanco, the four-year-old boy who had been the face of #Argentina’s national #vaccination campaign #diedsuddenly this morning. This is #murder.

These parents have made this 💉 a religion and they are all willing to sacrifice their healthy children to pharma gods.  Shameful and disgusting.

A new slap from Israel to the COVID-19 vaccines, while in Argentina, 4-year-old Santino Godoy Blanco, who was the central figure of the National Vaccination Campaign, died!

Truth : Santino Godoy Blanco Did NOT Die From Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

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

But before I start, I would like to point out that it is unbelievable how low they would go. They didn’t even bat an eye in lying about a young boy’s death. They have no shame at all.

Fact #1 : Santino Godoy Blanco Died From Pneumonia

Santino Godoy Blanco, who hailed from the town of San Miguel, had been unwell for a week with a high fever that persisted despite being given ibuprofen.

His mother, Agustina Blanco, took him to the Dr. Raúl F. Larcade Municipal Hospital at dawn on Wednesday, November 2, where the doctor said that he had a viral fever, and sent him home.

Unfortunately, Santino’s fever persisted and he started to throw up. He was Reliverán (Metoclopramide) for his vomiting, but eventually went back to the hospital after his condition did not improve.

Santino’s condition continued to deteriorate to Thursday – he kept vomiting, and was weak and not able to eat. Once again, his mother brought him to the hospital, but this time, Santino was so weak, he was no longer able to sit up and had to lie down.

After 10 minutes, the nurse told his mother that Santino needed oxygen, explaining that the doctor who checked him believed he was suffering from bronchospasm, but the three pulse oximeter sensors they tried didn’t work. Santino then went into shock, and they tried but failed to revive him after 1.5 hours.

After Santino Blanco died, an autopsy was conducted on his body, which revealed that he died from pneumonia.

In short, Santino Godoy Blanca’s cause of death was pneumonia, not COVID-19 or the COVID-19 vaccine.

It was also not a “sudden death”, as anti-vaccination activists keep claiming. Sadly, Santino suffered for a long time before dying from pneumonia.

Fact #2 : Argentinian Vaccination Campaign Was Not For COVID-19

Now, I should point out that the vaccination campaign that Santino Godoy Blanco was featured in, was not for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Santino was a model for the Argentinian National Ministry of Health’s vaccination campaign for measles, rubella, mumps and polio (sarampión, rubéola, paperas y polio).

All those nasty antivaxxers mocking his family or the boy for promoting something that “killed him” got it completely wrong. So you have to ask yourself – why should you listen to people who either lied, or just made up that claim?

Fact #3 : Unknown If Santino Blanco Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Just because Santino Godoy Blanco was a model for a vaccination campaign, does not mean he was actually vaccinated against COVID-19.

It’s no different from how actors may appear to be macho in a movie, but are quite different people in real life.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Argentina, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #4 : Argentina Uses Sinopharm For Child COVID-19 Vaccinations

Anti-vaccination activists are falsely blaming Santino Godoy Bianco’s death on mRNA vaccines.

Even if Santino Godoy Blanco was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he never received an mRNA vaccine, because Argentina only approved the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine for use in children between 3 and 11 years in age.

The Sinopharm COVILO vaccine, also known as BBIBP-CorV or just BIBP, is an inactivated virus vaccine made from actual SARS-CoV-2 virus grown in Vero cells, and killed using β-propiolactone. This vaccine does not use mRNA technology.

Fact #5 : Pneumonia Is A Common Cause Of Childhood Death

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that children do not die from pneumonia.

The truth is – pneumonia is a common cause of death in very young children, accounting for 14% of all deaths of children under 5 years old.

In fact, the WHO points out that pneumonia is the single largest infectious cause of death in children worldwide, killing 740,180 children in 2019 alone.

Pneumonia is a form of acute respiratory infection by viruses, bacteria or fungi that infect the lungs, and makes breathing difficult and reduces the amount of oxygen the child receives.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s pneumonia, cardiac arrest or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.

It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

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

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

New Pakatan Harapan Logo On GE15 Ballot Papers?!

People are claiming that the GE15 ballot papers will feature a new Pakatan Harapan logo in black and white.

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

 

Claim : GE15 Ballot Will Feature New Pakatan Harapan Logo!

People are claiming that the GE15 ballot papers will feature a new Pakatan Harapan logo in black and white.

Is this true? -> This is the PAKATAN HARAPAN new LOGO – neither colour nor wordings; just black & white on the ballot paper.

Many are not aware especially the senior citizens.

No color, no wording – PH new logo when voting

This is true? (Yesterday I just asked people to vote for the red red one).

A forwarded what’s app msg… worrying about PH… but then again same goes for BN too…. no color, no wording right? So does that means all other logos too same?

 

Truth : GE15 Ballot Will Feature Pakatan Harapan Logo With Words!

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

Fact #1 : Paper Ballots Have Always Been Printed In Black

First of all, let me just point out that while the paper ballots are printed on coloured paper, the words and logos have always been printed in black ink.

The party or political coalition logos have never been printed in colour, in any election in Malaysia, ever.

Fact #2 : Paper Ballots Have Candidate Names

The actual voting ballot will have candidate names, in addition to the party logo. Here is a sample of a GE15 paper ballot, showing :

  • the candidate’s name
  • the candidate’s political party / political coalition logo

As you can see, the paper ballot is printed on yellow coloured paper, but using only black ink.

Fact #3 : GE15 Paper Ballot Will Feature Pakatan Harapan Logo With Words

The GE15 paper ballot will not feature a new Pakatan Harapan logo without words, but the current Pakatan Harapan logo with words.

The Pakatan Harapan Presidential Council initially agreed in August 2022 on a new logo for the coalition. However, it decided on 5 October 2022, to go with its existing logo (with words) as the GE15 general elections was expected to be held soon.

Therefore, the Pakatan Harapan logo you will see in your paper ballot will be the current Pakatan Harapan logo with words.

Why Siddhaanth Surryavanshi Died In Gym Workout!

Find out if the viral claims about why Indian actor, Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi, died during his gym workout are true!

 

Claim : Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi collapsed and died while exercising at the gym, anti-vaccination activists immediately claim that the Indian television actor died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

🇮🇳L’acteur indien Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi (46 ans) est décédé subitement alors qu’il s’entraînait dans une salle de sport. Il laisse sa femme, ses 2 enfants et ses fans adorateurs

Truth : Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi Did NOT Die From Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi Died From Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi (born 15 December 1975) and also known as Anand Suryavanshi, suddenly collapsed and lost consciousness while working out in a gym at around 11 AM on Friday, 11 November 2022.

He was rushed to the Kokilaben Ambani Hospital in Andheri, Mumbai, where doctors tried but failed to revive him for 40 minutes, and he was declared dead.

While earlier reports stated that Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi died of a heart attack, the cause of death was later determined to be sudden cardiac arrest.

In other words – he did not die from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect. Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi died from cardiac arrest.

Fact #2 : Alesia Raut Never Blamed Vaccine For His Death

His wife, model Alesia Raut, posted on Instagram about Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi’s death, sharing a photo of their first picture together.

In her tribute to him, she only spoke of his love for her and his two kids. She never once mentioned, or blamed, the COVID-19 vaccine for his death.

Therefore, it is really odd that anti-vaccination activists would claim that Siddhaanth died from the COVID-19 vaccine. Do they know better than his own wife?

Fact #3 : Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi Is Likely Vaccinated

As far as I’m aware, Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi did not share any photos of his COVID-19 vaccination, or share when he got vaccinated against COVID-19.

However, it is very likely that Siddhaanth is fully-vaccinated, as he stated on 6 January 2022, that he was looking forward to getting his daughter, Diza, and his son, Mark, vaccinated against COVID-19.

He also encouraged other Indian citizens to get their children vaccinated against COVID-19.

Instead of panicking or hoarding stuff, groceries etc, we should be kind and be thoughtful about others. I take this opportunity to urge people to complete their vaccinations. And the good news is that the vaccine for kids is now available! I feel relaxed and sorted that my children will soon be safe and get their vaccines.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died 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.

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 #5 : Cardiac Arrest Is A Common Cause Of Sudden Death

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that healthy people do not suddenly die from cardiac arrest.

The truth is – people have been dying from cardiac arrest since time immemorial, long before any vaccine was invented.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

In Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi’s case, he was performing strenuous exercise in a gym, which is when cardiac arrest occurs most frequently.

That’s why many states in the United States enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s a heart attack, cardiac arrest or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.

It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

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