Bondi Attacker Was Not Jewish Extremist Called Ben Cohen!

Was the Bondi Junction killer a Jewish extremist called Ben Cohen?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bondi Junction Killer Was Jewish Extremist Called Ben Cohen

Right after news broke about a man who stabbed and killed six people at Bondi Junction, some people immediately claimed or suggested that he was a Jewish extremist called Ben Cohen!

Thomas Sewell : First confirmed victim of the terror attack in Sydney is a White mother and her baby.

Media accidentally leaked the attackers name as “Benjamin Cohen”.

In the video you can clearly see he is Arab/Semite, so not surprised to find out he is jewish not muslim.

Thomas Sewell : I doubt this is a coincidence that Iran is attacking Israel today and I’d hazard a guess CSG (Mossad) in Sydney would be behind launching an attack.

Conservative Inc and jews all over twitter and MSM were quick to say this was an anti-semitic attack because it happened in bondi.

Truth : Bondi Junction Killer Was Not Jewish Extremist Called Ben Cohen

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Ben Cohen Is Not Bondi Junction Killer

Let me start by pointing out that Ben Cohen / Benjamin Cohen is not the Bondi Junction killer!

The real Bondi Junction killer has been identified as Joel Cauchi – a 40 year-old man from Toowoomba, Queensland. It was his family who contacted the police, after recognising him on the news.

Joel Cauchi lived a transient lifestyle, and travelled to Sydney in March 2024. At about 3:20 PM on 13 April 2024, Cauchi entered Westfield Bondi Junction and started stabbing people randomly with a knife, killing six people and injuring 12 others.

When police inspector Amy Scott confronted Fauci on the 5th floor, he lunged at her with a knife. She then shot him twice in his chest, and performed CPR on him after he collapsed. However, Joel Cauchi died on the scene.

To be clear – Joel Cauchi was the person who stabbed 18 people at Westfield Bondi Junction, killing 6 of them. Ben Cohen had nothing to do with the Bondi Junction stabbings!

Fact #2 : Benjamin Cohen Is Still Alive

I should also point out that the real Bondi Junction killer was shot dead by Inspector Amy Scott, whereas Ben Cohen / Benjamin Cohen is still alive, and well!

In fact, Ben Cohen – a 20 year-old first-year computing science student at the University of Technology, slammed claims that he was the one who stabbed those people at Westfield Bondi Junction.

His father, Mark, who lives with him, had to fend off those vicious rumours, and called on the New South Wales police to release the name of the real Bondi Junction killer.

Everyone’s asking what’s going on, people asking if it’s true. Of course it’s not true, he’s not even a politically motivated person. He’s just a normal kid who now has got to deal with this.

Hey NSW Police, you need to release the name of the Bondi junction attacker before this nonsense claiming it was my son causes more harm.

Unsurprisingly, none of those who claimed that Benjamin Cohen was the Jewish extremist who stabbed those people at Bondi Junction, ever provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Fact #3 : Channel 7 Wrongly Identifies Ben Cohen As Bondi Junction Killer

Channel 7 News appears to be the first to claim that Ben Cohen was the Bondi Junction killer.

In a 5-minute video clip on its YouTube channel, Sunrise hose Matt Shirvington was interviewing security expert Scott Taylor outside Westfield Bondi Junction, with the chyron reading “Security expert Scott aylor joins Weekend Sunrise as new details are confirmed about the attacker, Benjamin Cohen, and his victims.

After Channel 7 News was contacted about the mistake, the video clip was quickly deleted, and a spokesperson said that it was “a human error”:

It was human error. The mistake has been rectified. Seven sincerely apologises for the error.

To be clear – Channel 7 News never claimed that Benjamin Cohen was a Jewish extremist. So it is most peculiar to see people immediately claiming or suggesting that he was a Jewish / Israeli extremist.

Needless to say, Ben Cohen found the whole experience of being falsely accused of murdering and injuring so many people “highly distressing”:

It’s extremely disappointing to me to see people mindlessly propagating misinformation like this without even the slightest thought put into fact checking.

But what’s even more disappointing to me is a major news network doing this, using my name without waiting for a statement from police to verify this or going out to try and verify it themselve

This whole incident has been highly distressing and disappointing for myself and my family. And it’s quite disappointing to see how eager people were to ‘bandwagon’ on and spread this type of (misinformation) like wildfire.

Was Bondi Junction Killer An Islamic Terrorist / Immigrant?!

Was the Bondi Junction killer an Islamic terrorist or a Muslim immigrant?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bondi Junction Killer Was Islamic Terrorist / Immigrant!

Right after news broke about a man who stabbed and killed six people at Bondi Junction, some people immediately claimed or suggested that he was an Islamic terrorist or a Muslim immigrant!

Mike Davis : An Islamic terrorist goes on a stabbing rampage in an Australian mall. Targeting women, children, and babies. And the men don’t have guns to stop him?

1. Repeal gun control. Arm up.

2. Deport unvetted fighting-aged men from countries that hate Christians and Jews. Smarten up.

Truth : Bondi Junction Killer Was Not Islamic Terrorist / Immigrant!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Bondi Junction Killer Was From Queensland

Let me start by pointing out that the Bondi Junction killer was identified as Joel Cauchi – a 40 year-old man from Toowoomba, Queensland. It was his family who contacted the police, after recognising him on the news.

Joel Cauchi lived a transient lifestyle, and travelled to Sydney in March 2024. At about 3:20 PM on 13 April 2024, Cauchi entered Westfield Bondi Junction and started stabbing people randomly with a knife, killing six people and injuring 12 others.

When police inspector Amy Scott confronted Fauci on the 5th floor, he lunged at her with a knife. She then shot him twice in his chest, and performed CPR on him after he collapsed. However, Joel Cauchi died on the scene.

To be clear – Joel Cauchi was a native Australian, and not an immigrant. None of those who claimed that he was an immigrant actually provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Fact #2 : Bondi Junction Attack Was Not Terror-Related

Not only was Joel Cauchi not an immigrant, there is no indication he is a Muslim, or even a terrorist of any kind. In fact, the police has stated that the attack was no terror-related.

There was also no report that Joel Cauchi screamed Allahu Akbar  (God is greater) as he stabbed people at Westfield Bondi Junction.

Unsurprisingly, none of those who claimed that Joel Cauchi was an Islamic terrorist, ever provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Fact #3 : Joel Cauchi Had Mental Health Problems

According to Queensland Police Assistant Commissioner Roger Lowe, Joel Cauchi was known to the police for mental health issues over the past four years, but had not been arrested or arrested for any offence.

He has not been prosecuted or arrested or charged for any offence within Queensland, and he has no record within the courts for a domestic violence order.

New South Wales police also dismissed links to terrorist ideologies, saying that Joel Cauchi acted alone, and had a history of mental health issues. It is believed that Joel Cauchi was suffering from schizophrenia when he stabbed random people (while ignoring others) at Westfield Bondi Junction.

He was first diagnosed with mental health issues when he was 17, but his mental health apparently declined in recent years. A neighbour at his childhood home told the media that Joel Cauchi had schizophrenia growing up.

They seem like a nice family with a nice house but he had schizophrenia growing up.

Needless to say – those who claimed that the Bondi Junction killer was an Islamic terrorist, or a Muslim immigrant, and not just a mentally-disturbed man.

Cops seized E Jean Carroll’s gun after Trump assassination threat?!

Did cops just seize E. Jean Carroll’s gun after assassination threats were made against Donald Trump?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Cops Seized E Jean Carroll’s Gun After Trump Threat!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the police just seize E. Jean Carroll’s gun after assassination threats were made against Donald Trump!

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

Cops Seize E Jean Carroll’s Gun Following Trump Assassination Threats

New York police have confiscated an unlicensed firearm belonging to E. Jean Carroll following assassination threats made against Donald Trump.

In January, The National Pulse reported that Carroll admitted to holding a firearm at her home during her defamation trial against former President Trump. This revelation, according to a police report, led Warwick, New York police to visit Carroll’s residence on February 15 to address the weapon.

The gun confiscation comes amid multiple credible threats against Trump from high-profile far-left activists.

Recommended : E. Jean Caroll Admits Lying To Help Biden Destroy Trump?!

 

Truth : Cops Did Not Seize E Jean Carroll’s Gun After Trump Threat!

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

Fact #1 : E. Jean Carroll Handed Over The Gun!

Let me start by pointing out that the police did not seize the gun. Instead, E. Jean Carroll handed over her  gun to the police.

E. Jean Carroll had earlier told the federal court in New York (on January 17) that she kept a “high standard revolver, nine chambers” by her bed at home, but she did not have a licence.

In a police report obtained by NBC News,  the Warwick chief of police visited E. Jean Carroll’s house on 15 February “to discuss some open issues“. The next day, E. Jean Carroll and a member of her security team surrendered the gun to the Warwick police.

To be clear – the Warwick police department did not seize E. Jean Carroll’s gun. She surrendered it a day after the Warwick police chief addressed her disclosure about owning an unregistered gun.

Fact #2 : Police Is Keeping Her Gun Until She Has A Licence

The Warwick chief of police, John Rader, said in his report, that he “offered to secure the weapon at the police station’s property for safekeeping”.

The police report also said that the firearm was being held until E. Jean Carroll obtained a New York pistol licence for it.

To be clear – the Warwick police department did not seize E. Jean Carroll’s gun, because of any assassination threat against Donald Trump. It is only keeping her gun, until she obtains the necessary New York pistol licence.

Recommended : Are Soldiers Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure?!

Fact #3 : E. Jean Carroll Did Not Threaten Donald Trump

The People’s Voice article appears to suggest that the confiscation of E. Jean Carroll’s gun was related to assassination threats against Donald Trump. That is simply not the case.

Not only have there not been any recent assassination threats against Donald Trump, E. Jean Carroll herself did not threaten Donald Trump.

On the other hand, E. Jean Carroll was threatened by Donald Trump’s supporters after he posted about her on social media:

“The thing that really got me about this was, from the White House, he asked if anyone had any information about me, and if they did, to please come forward as soon as possible, because he wanted the world to know what’s really going on – and that people like me should pay dearly,” she told jurors.

Carroll was presented with some of those threats on the stand. “I hope you die soon. I hope someone really does attack, rape and murder you,” one message stated. Another missive read: “Rape Jean rape jean.”

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

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

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

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

Did OJ Simpson Die From Vaccine Turbo Cancer?!

Did OJ Simpson just die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine turbo cancer?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : OJ Simpson Died From Vaccine Turbo Cancer!

Right after news broke that OJ Simpson died from prostate cancer, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the former NFL star developed turbo cancer from the COVID-19 vaccine!

Alex Jones : Watch OJ Simpson demand you get your COVID Shots. Turbo Cancers are off the charts, and we warned you.

Recommended : Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

Truth : OJ Simpson Did Not Die From Vaccine Turbo Cancer!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : OJ Simpson Died From Prostate Cancer

In May 2023, OJ Simpson (born Orenthal James Simpson on 9 July 1947) publicly revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer, and was undergoing chemotherapy. At that time, he did not reveal what cancer he had. It was only in February 2024 when it was reported that OJ Simpson was being treated for prostate cancer.

In the final days before his death, all of his children visited him at his home in Las Vegas, right next to the Rhodes Ranch Golf Club. On Wednesday, 10 April 2024, OJ Simpson died from prostate cancer, surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

To be clear – OJ Simpson did not die from his COVID-19 vaccination. He died from prostate cancer.

Fact #2 : His Family Did Not Blame COVID-19 Vaccines

OJ Simpson’s family announced his death on his official account on X (formerly known as Twitter):

On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer.

He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace.

-The Simpson Family

Notably, OJ Simpson’s family did not claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccines, or turbo cancer.

Recommended : Did Olivia Munn Get Turbo Breast Cancer From Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : OJ Simpson Likely Had Advanced Prostate Cancer

When OJ Simpson announced in May 2023 that he was diagnosed with (prostate) cancer, he also said that he was undergoing chemotherapy. That suggests that Simpson was diagnosed with metastatic or advanced prostate cancer.

Unfortunately, the prognosis for advanced or metastatic prostate cancer is rather poor, with a 5-year survival rate of just 32%. So it is not surprising that OJ Simpson would succumb just under a year later.

Fact #4 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist!

I should also point out that there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and after billions of doses have been administered worldwide in the past 3 years – there is still no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

What OJ Simpson experienced is similar to what many men with prostate cancer have experienced. The fact that he underwent chemotherapy in May 2023 suggests that he was diagnosed with metastatic or advanced prostate cancer.

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti-vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Did Park Boram Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did K-pop star Park Boram just die suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Park Boram Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Park Boram died suddenly at just 30 years of age, some people immediately claimed or suggested the K-pop star was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Hello Dave #excessdeaths / ⚜️Cassandre🐦Colibri✝️ :

K-Pop Singer-Songwriter Park Boram Found Dead at 30.

No cause of death #diedsuddenly

Recommended : Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

No Evidence Park Boram Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Park Boram Reportedly Suffered Cardiac Arrest

On Thursday night, 11 April 2024, Park Boram (born Park Bo-ram 박보람 on 1 March 1994) was drinking with two friends at a residence in Namyangju, Gyeonggi, when she excused herself to go to the washroom.

When Park Boram did not return for an extended period of time, her friends looked for her and found her “slouched over the sink, unconscious” at around 9:55 PM. They called for an ambulance, while one of her friends performed CPR, and attempted to revive her.

Park Boram was reportedly suffering from a cardiac arrest when the police and emergency services reached her. She was transported t to the Hanyang University Guri Hospital, while receiving CPR, but was ultimately declared dead at 11:17 PM.

Fact #2 : Cause of Death + Autopsy Report Not Revealed Yet

An autopsy was conducted on Park Boram on Saturday, 13 April 2024, to determine her cause of death, while the police is conducting its own investigation into her death.

Until and unless the police, the coroner or her family announces her cause of death, or releases her autopsy report, anyone who claims that Park Boram died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Heavy Drinking Can Cause Sudden Cardiac Death

Park Boram was reportedly drinking heavily before her sudden collapse and death. This is important, as alcohol is known to have “an immediate effect on cardiac rhythm“, and previous studies have shown that “a notable proportion of sudden cardiac deaths (SCD) occur after alcohol intake“.

  • 2022 Finnish study suggests that majority of alcohol-related SCD occur at the late stage of inebriation.
  • 2024 Korean study suggests that moderate and heavy drinking was associated with significantly increased risk of atrial fibrillation

The autopsy will determine whether Park Boram’s alcohol consumption was a contributing factor to her death. So please wait for the autopsy report, and/or her cause of death, to be revealed.

Recommended : Did Olivia Munn Get Turbo Breast Cancer From Vaccine?!

Fact #4 : Unknown If Park Boram Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Park Boram was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Park Boram was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the South Korea.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless her family (or the authorities) reveal her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Park Boram was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

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

Even if Park Boram was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her doses more than two years ago! She cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination. Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

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

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

Did Nathan Templeton Die From mRNA Vaccine SADS?!

Did former Channel 7 Sunrise reporter Nathan Templeton die suddenly from mRNA vaccine SADS?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Nathan Templeton Died Suddenly From mRNA Vaccine!

Right after news broke that Nathan Templeton was found dead in a park, some people immediately claimed or suggested the former Channel 7 Sunrise reporter died suddenly from the mRNA vaccine!

William Makis MD : Australia – 44 year old Channel 7 News reporter Nathan Templeton died while on a dog walk.

“On 9 April 2024, Templeton was found dead near Barwon River in Geelong after suffering a medical episode while out walking the dog”

As far as COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine sudden deaths go, walking the dog may not be such a bad way to go. #DiedSuddenly

Recommended : Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

No Evidence Nathan Templeton Died Suddenly From mRNA Vaccine!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Nathan Templeton Died From A Medical Episode

On Tuesday afternoon, 9 April 2024, Nathan Templeton (born 9 May 1979) suffered a medical episode while walking his dog in the Zillah Crawcour Park, in the Geelong suburb of Newtown. According to the Victoria Police:

Emergency services were called to a park in Newtown about 2.30pm where the man was located deceased. The death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage.

There is no evidence he died from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, and unsurprisingly, none of those who made those claims ever provided any evidence to back up their baseless claims.

Even his family did not claim that Nathan Templeton died from any vaccination, stating simply that:

Our hearts are broken for an adoring father and a wonderful friend, who’ll be missed by many.

Nathan Templeton was just one month short of his 45th birthday, and leaves behind his wife, Kate, and two young sons.

Fact #2 : Cause of Death + Autopsy Report Not Revealed Yet

The Victoria Police is preparing a report for the coroner, but stated that “the death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage“.

Until and unless the coroner or his family announces his cause of death, or releases his autopsy report, anyone who claims that Nathan Templeton died suddenly from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Recommended : Did Japan Study Prove Vaccinated Blood Is Dangerous?!

Fact #3 : Nathan Templeton Was Suffering From Personal Issues

Although his cause of death has not been determined or revealed, suicide appears to be a possibility. Nathan Templeton was said to be grappling with long-standing personal issues, including depression.

He stopped being on-air for Channel 7 Sunrise since late 2022, and had been working behind-the-scenes instead last year. He has been receiving support for his personal issues, including depression.

Now, that does not mean Nathan Templeton committed suicide. He could easily have died from a cardiac arrest, a heart attack, a stroke – common medical episodes that have been killing people long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Again, we should wait for the autopsy report, and his official cause of death, and not speculate!

Fact #4 : Nathan Templeton Was Vaccinated Almost 3 Years Ago!

From his social media posts, it appears that Nathan Templeton was vaccinated sometime in May 2021. However, it is unknown if he received an mRNA vaccine, as Australia used a mix of COVID-19 vaccines.

In any case, Nathan Templeton would have been fully-vaccinated almost 3 years ago. He cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not years later!

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination. Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

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

Did global poll show Putin 2X more popular than Biden?!

Did a global poll show that twice as many people would prefer Vladimir Putin as President than Joe Biden?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Global Poll Shows Putin 2X More Popular Than Biden!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that a global poll just showed that twice as many people would prefer Vladimir Putin as President than Joe Biden!

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

Global Poll Reveals Twice as Many People Would Prefer Putin as President Than Biden

Recommended : Did Putin Just Threaten To Release 9/11 Satellite Evidence?!

 

Truth : Global Poll Did Not Show Putin 2X More Popular Than Biden!

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

Fact #1 : It Was Not A Global Poll

Let me start by pointing out that the Al-Monitor poll which was the basis of the The People’s Voice article was not a global poll. It only covered three Middle Eastern countries – Egypt, Iraq, Turkey; and one North African country – Tunisia.

That’s only a fraction of Middle Eastern and North African countries – just three out of 18 countries in the Middle East, and just one in seven countries in North Africa . It’s not even a regional poll. It also did not include influential countries like Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), or Jordan.

More importantly, the poll covers just 4 of the 195 countries around the world. So the poll does not show that Vladimir Putin is twice as popular as Joe Biden around the world.

Fact #2 : Al-Monitor Poll Did Not Show Waning US Influence

The Al-Monitor poll also does not show the US losing influence around the world under President Joe Biden, as the The People’s Voice article claimed.

In fact, the Al-Monitor poll actually showed that 40% of respondents agreed that the US is still “best equipped to help solve the Israel-Hamas war”, compared to Russia (27.9%) or China (13.4%).

In other words, the respondents overwhelmingly believe that the US is still far more influential than Russia, at least in resolving the Israel-Hamas war.

Fact #3 : Al-Monitor Did Not Refer To Biden’s Weak Leadership

The People’s Voice article suggests that the Al-Monitor polling showed that the US was losing influence due to President Joe Biden’s “weak leadership.

The Al-Monitor article (archive) suggested that Washington’s popularity suffered due to its support of Israel’s war in Gaza, and said nothing about Biden’s leadership qualities.

Again, the Al-Monitor poll showed that 40% of respondents agreed that the US is still “best equipped to help solve the Israel-Hamas war”, compared to Russia (27.9%) or China (13.4%).

That sounds like a tacit acknowledgement that people in those four countries trust Biden far more than Putin in helping to resolve the Israel-Hamas war.

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

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

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

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

Is Ukraine now drafting soldiers with Down syndrome?!

Is Ukraine now forced to draft soldiers with Down syndrome?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Ukraine is drafting soldiers with Down syndrome!

People are sharing videos of what they claim or suggest is a Ukrainian soldier with Down syndrome, in a trench being abused by his fellow Ukrainians. In another video, the same Down syndrome soldier is seen almost dropping a bomb upside down a mortar tube!

Ian Miles Cheong : There are multiple videos of Ukrainian men with obvious physical and intellectual disabilities being press-ganged, “mobilized” and forced to be on the front lines—some of whom are rescued by women who no longer want to lose their men to fight Zelensky’s war. This video of an intellectually disabled man is one such example. How much longer must this go on?

Recommended : Did Russia Arrest Rustam Azhiev For Moscow Attack?!

 

Truth : Ukraine is not drafting soldiers with Down syndrome!

This appears to be yet another example of Russian propaganda and/or fake news, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Down syndrome Man Does Not Appear To Be AFU Soldier

Let me start by pointing out that there is no evidence that the soldier with Down syndrome is actually part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU). In fact, there is no evidence he is even a soldier!

If you look carefully at the two videos (another below), you will notice a few problems with claims that the Down syndrome man is an AFU soldier:

  • His uniform lacks any unit patch or identification
  • He’s wearing rubber boots, even though it’s winter
  • While you may think he’s wearing a bulletproof vest, he’s just wearing an empty plate carrier, without any actual armour plate.
  • He also lacks a helmet and a weapon of any kind, even though the videos claim / suggest that he’s on the frontline.

Unsurprisingly, none of those sharing these videos actually provided any evidence that the man, who is apparently called Vokha, is serving in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Recommended : Were Chinese Missiles Really Filled With Water?!

Fact #2 : It Was Likely Recorded Far From Any Frontline

The videos lack any features that allow for geolocation, so it could easily be recorded in Russia, or Russian-occupied territories in Ukraine, using a Ukrainian man with Down syndrome.

In fact, it was likely recorded far away from any frontline as his abuser / cameraman was very loud. Such shouting would have attracted the attention of the opposing side, resulting in artillery fire or a drone attack.

In addition, there was a distinct lack of background sound – no booming of artillery, not even gunshots in the distance. It literally sounds like the videos were taken in a safe environment, far from any fighting.

Fact #3 : AFU Does Not Accept Soldiers With Disabilities

I should also point out that the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) does not accept soldiers with such significant disabilities.

As the AFU’s Regulation on Military Medical Examination decreed (archive), people with significant congenital or chromosomal abnormalities are ineligible for military service, even if they wish to voluntarily join the AFU!

Recommended : Did Ukrainian Pilot Defect To Russia With NATO Tech?!

Fact #4 : He Would Have Endangered His Fellow Soldiers

Frankly, it would not make sense for Ukraine to deploy soldiers with Down syndrome on the frontlines, even if they are desperate, because they would pose even more danger to their fellow soldiers.

People with Down syndrome not only have some intellectual impairment, they also have health problems. If they are ever drafted to serve in the military, they would be serving in the rear, and never on the frontlines.

Fact #5 : This Is Likely Just Russian Propaganda

This is likely just Russian, or pro-Russia, propaganda / fake news, just like these examples that I fact checked earlier:

Did WEF order governments to declare Bird Flu Martial Law?!

Did the WEF just order world governments to declare martial law due to an imminent bird flu pandemic?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Orders Governments To Declare Bird Flu Martial Law!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the WEF (World Economic Forum) just ordered world governments to declare martial law due to an imminent bird flu pandemic!

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

WEF Orders Govt’s To Declare Martial Law Due to ‘Imminent Bird Flu Pandemic’ About To Sweep Globe

Recommended : Did WEF Pass Law To Criminalise Criticism Of mRNA?!

 

Truth : WEF Did Not Order Governments To Declare Bird Flu Martial Law!

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

Fact #1 : WEF Did Not Order Any Bird Flu Martial Law

Let me start by pointing out that the WEF (World Economic Forum) did not order any government to declare martial law over bird flu.

If that actually happened, it would have been reported by the media worldwide, and criticised by people on social media. Yet, none of that occurred, because the WEF never made such a declaration.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its ridiculous claim.

Fact #2 : WEF Cannot Order Governments To Do Anything

I should also point out that the World Economic Forum (WEF) cannot order any country to implement anything, much less martial law. It is merely an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that focuses on public-private sector collaboration.

The WEF has no power over governments, beyond its lobbying and influencing efforts. The WEF may be an influential lobbying organisation, but it cannot order governments to do anything.

Fact #3 : WEF Does Not Have Scientists

Again, the WEF is an NGO that promotes public-private collaborations. It doesn’t actually have scientists conducting research on bird flu, or other diseases.

To be clear – Mandy Cohen is the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and does not work for the WEF. Neither is John Fulton – a pharmaceutical industry consultant for vaccines, a scientist working for the WEF.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its claim that WEF scientists said that “the upcoming bird flu pandemic will kill at least 50% of those it infects“.

Recommended : Did EU Legalise Child Porn As WEF Pedophilia Agenda?!

Fact #4 : There Is No Need To Declare Martial Law

The term “martial law” appears to used to trigger outrage, and encourage people into sharing this piece of misinformation.

The truth is – even if there is a new pandemic, there is no need for any country to declare martial law. As the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated, countries have existing public health laws to initiate lockdowns or quarantines.

Martial law is only needed if there is a serious threat of violence that the police cannot handle. While bird flu viruses may be lethal, they cannot pick up guns and threaten people with violence. So what’s the point of declaring martial law?

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

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

Did RFK Jr Conspiracy Theories Turn Out To Be True?!

Did 5 conspiracy theories promoted by RFK Jr turn out to be true?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : RFK Jr Conspiracy Theories Turned Out To Be True!

People are sharing a post by The Vigilant Fox (archive), which claims / suggests that five conspiracy theorists promoted by Robert F. Kennedy (RFK Jr.) turned out to be true! The Vigilant Fox also posted this on X (formerly known as Twitter):

RFK Jr. Hits Back at Chris Cuomo After Being Labeled a ‘Conspiracy Theorist’

“Tell me a theory that you think I got wrong. Show me facts.”

Kennedy then listed a series of “conspiracy theories” that ended up being true:

Recommended : Did CDC redact all 148 pages of its mRNA myocarditis study?!

 

Which RFK Jr Conspiracy Theories Turned Out To Be True?

Let’s take a look at those five conspiracy theories promoted by RFK Jr, and find out if they indeed turned out to be true!

Claim #1 : Glyphosate Causes non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Verdict : Still Uncertain

Glyphosate, a widely-used herbicide, has been the subject of many studies and lawsuits, over claims that it can potentially cause cancer, particularly non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

As the City of Hope cancer centre pointed out, it has still not be scientifically proven that glyphosate causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, even though the courts have seen fit to dole out billions of dollars in damages.

In 2019, researchers at University of Washington concluded that using glyphosate increases the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma by 41 percent. However, the preponderance of research worldwide has found no connection to glyphosate and cancer risk. And most of the world’s health agencies agree. For instance:

Notably, Bayer settled the majority of current and future lawsuits over Roundup – Monsanto’s glyphosate product, for $10 billion, without admitting that glyphosate causes cancer. In fact, Roundup and other glyphosate herbicides are still sold all over the world today!

The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), however, stated in 2015 that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” CNN reported that hundreds of patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma started suing the manufacturers of glyphosate herbicides after IARC made its announcement.

In other words – glyphosate has not yet been proven to cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The research is currently still not definitive.

Recommended : FDA Now Allows Experiments On People Without Consent?!

Claim #2 : COVID-19 Vaccines Would Not Prevent Transmission
Verdict : False

Let me start by pointing out that COVID-19 vaccines were never required to prevent transmission. The main purpose of the COVID-19 vaccines was to prevent death and severe disease (and hospitalisation) from COVID-19, not to block transmission.

Hence, the end points for COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials did not include blocking transmission, although scientists and healthcare professionals were hoping that the vaccines would significantly block transmission.

After vaccinations started in 2021, researchers found that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, for example, was significantly reducing the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

UK study : New data from Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge suggests that a single dose of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine can reduce by 75% the number of asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infections. This implies that the vaccine could significantly reduce the risk of transmission of the virus from people who are asymptomatic, as well as protecting others from getting ill.

Israeli study : These results suggest that BNT162b2 is moderately to highly effective in reducing infectivity, via preventing infection and through reducing viral shedding.

While the vaccines’ effectiveness against infection and transmission waned with each new variant (research), they still continue to provide protection, not only against death and hospitalisation from COVID-19, but also infection and transmission.

In fact, a September 2023 systematic review of existing research show that COVID-19 vaccines reduce transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, regardless of variant:

Overall, study results showed the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 transmission (range 16–95%), regardless of vaccine type or number of doses.

The effect was apparent, but less pronounced against omicron (range 24–95% for pre-omicron variants versus 16–31% for omicron).

Results from viral load studies were supportive, showing SARS-CoV-2 infections in vaccinated individuals had higher Ct values, suggesting lower viral load, compared to infections among the unvaccinated.

In short – the RFK Jr. conspiracy theory that COVID-19 vaccines do not block transmission at all has been disproven time and time again.

Recommended : Do COVID-19 Vaccines Increase Risk Of Long COVID?!

Claim #3A : COVID Lockdowns Were Very Harmful To Children
Verdict : Partially True

This isn’t a conspiracy theory, but more of an opinion by RFK Jr., as no one actually disputed even back then that COVID-19 lockdowns would be detrimental to everyone, not just children. After all, human beings evolved to be social animals, and are biologically-driven to seek out the company of others.

The lockdowns were only implemented because the authorities wanted to stop the spread of COVID-19, and determined that the benefits far outweighed the risks. While children were judged to be least affected by COVID-19, they cannot be left out of a lockdown, because they can transmit the virus to vulnerable members of their own family.

While it is indisputable that the lockdowns can have a negative impact on children, the claim that the lockdowns were “very dangerous” to children isn’t borne out in actual studies.

2021 Spanish study : Children, in general, showed high resilience and capability to adapt to new situations. Sleeping problems were reported in more than half of the children (54%) and adolescents (59%), and these were strongly associated with less time doing sports and spending more than 5 h per day using electronic devices. Parents perceived their children to gain weight (41%), be more irritable and anxious (63%) and sadder (46%).

2022 Chart Review : Many children developed educational, social, emotional, and behavioral gaps during LD, and they lost skills to deal with everyday problems due to social isolation. It is important to follow the long-term impact of the lockdowns and social isolation.

In short, while more children experience mental health issues during the lockdown, other children were able to cope with the changes.

Also important to note – the lockdowns helped to prevent vulnerable people – both adults and children, from dying from COVID-19. While mental health issues can be detrimental, it can be treated or mitigated, whereas death cannot.

Recommended : Did Norway Study Show mRNA Vaccine Risk In Children?!

Claim #3B : COVID Lockdowns Would Damage Economy
Verdict : True

Well, thank you, Captain Obvious. No one ever said that COVID-19 lockdowns would not damage the economy. RFK Jr. might as well have said that it gets wet when it rains.

To be clear – everyone knows that lockdowns will damage the economy. That’s indisputable when businesses are forced to close, and people are required to stay at home. The lockdowns were only implemented to save lives, by blocking the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, until vaccines and treatments could be developed.

Claim #3C : COVID Lockdowns Would Not Block Transmission
Verdict : False

The claim by RFK Jr. and other people that lockdowns would not block the transmission of viral infections is false. The concept of a quarantine and the wider lockdown is centuries-old, and have proven to be effective in curbing the spread of disease.

More recently, the SARS outbreak in 2002, which killed over 800 people, was contained by blocking all human-to-human transmission through syndromic surveillance, strict isolation of patients and quarantine of their contacts, and lockdowns (community quarantine).

Even though the far more extensive COVID-19 lockdowns did not stop its global spread, they helped to reduce transmission and reduce the impact on healthcare services, until effective vaccines become available:

Even if our public health measures are not able to fully contain the spread of COVID-19 because of the virus characteristics, they will still be effective in delaying the onset of widespread community transmission, reducing peak incidence and its impact on public services, and decreasing the overall attack rate.

In addition, minimising the size of the outbreak or suppressing its peak can reduce global deaths by providing health systems with the opportunity to scale up and respond, and to slow down the global spread until effective vaccines become available.

Recommended : Did Scientists Call For Global mRNA Vaccine Moratorium?!

Claim #4A : Face Masks Won’t Block Transmission
Verdict : False

People like RFK Jr. who claim the face masks don’t work often refer to the 2023 Cochrane report which stated that, “wearing masks in the community probably makes little or no difference to the outcome of influenza‐like illness“.

However, they fail to point out that the same report urged caution, and pointed out that there was “a high risk of bias in the trials, variation in outcome measurement, and relatively low adherence with the interventions during the studies hampers drawing firm conclusions“.

Cochrane officially said that the report was inconclusive, and the editor-in-chief of the Cochrane Library, Karla Soares-Weiser, called reports saying that “masks don’t work” as an “inaccurate and misleading interpretation“.

It would be accurate to say that the review examined whether interventions to promote mask-wearing help to slow the spread of respiratory viruses, and that the results were inconclusive.

In addition, Michael D. Brown, who serves on the Cochrane editorial board pointed out that the review could not arrive at a firm conclusion because “there were not enough high-quality randomised trials where participants adhered to mask-wearing rules.

Other studies, like this 2020 Japanese study, show that wearing a properly-fitted face mask will greatly reduce the amount of inhaled virus droplets / aerosols, compared to not wearing a face mask at all.

  • Cotton face mask : 20% to 40% reduction
  • Surgical mask : 47% to 50% reduction
  • N95 mask : 80% to 90% reduction

They also show that infected people wearing face masks can block transmission, by reducing the amount of virus droplets / aerosols being expelled into the environment.

Our airborne simulation experiments showed that cotton masks, surgical masks, and N95 masks had a protective effect with respect to the transmission of infective droplets/aerosols and that the protective efficiency was higher when masks were worn by the virus spreader.

Claim #4B : Face Masks Do More Harm Than Good
Verdict : False

There is no evidence that face masks do more harm than good, as RFK Jr. claimed or suggested. In fact, healthcare professionals have been wearing face masks to protect their patients and themselves since they were invented in the late nineteenth century.

Their effectiveness was greatly improved by Malaysian Chinese epidemiologist Dr. Wu Lien-teh, who developed a face mask with layers of gauze and cotton that would protect both the wearer, and other people.

The modern surgical mask as we know it was developed in the 1960s, and has been in use since then. In the 1990s, Taiwanese-American scientist Peter Tsai would invent the electrocharged fibre that would make the N95 mask possible.

To be clear – face masks do not do more harm than good, no matter how many times people like RFK Jr. repeat such claims.

Claim #5 : Social Distancing Not Based On Science
Verdict : Partially True

The claim that Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted that social distancing is not based on science isn’t actually accurate.

In his closed-door congressional testimony, Dr. Fauci said that the US federal social distancing guidance that people keep six feet of social distance “sort of just appeared”. He didn’t actually say that social distancing did not work. He only said that the six feet guidance was not backed up by an actual study.

When the US government first issued its guidance on social distancing, there were no studies on how far the COVID-19 virus can disperse from an infected person and remain infective. The six feet recommendation was based on early assessments that COVID-19 spread by droplets. Later, this was found not to be accurate, as COVID-19 could also spread by aerosols, therefore extending beyond the six feet guidance.

In short – social distancing can help reduce transmission. The further away you are from an infected person, the less likely you will inhale significant amounts of viral particles. What was not based on science back in 2020 was the six-feet recommendation. If we know what we know today – people would have to socially-distance way beyond six feet.

Now, isn’t it fortunate that we now have effective COVID-19 vaccines, and can do away with social distancing?

Was “Dead” COVID Crisis Actor Seen Waking Up On TV?!

Was a “dead” COVID-19 crisis actor seen waking up on live TV?! Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : “Dead” COVID Crisis Actor Seen Waking Up On TV!

People are sharing a video which they claim or suggest is evidence that government faked COVID-19 deaths. The video appears to show a reporter speaking, with rows of black body bags behind him – supposedly COVID-19 victims.

Then one of the “dead” COVID-19 crisis actors is seen fiddling with his body bag that was blowing in the wind, before a lady goes to help cover him up!

Concerned Citizen : 🚨🌎 During Covid – Legacy Media regularly wheeled out the body bags, giving the illusion of mass deaths from a deadly virus

Of course it was all a Lie.

Sometimes Crisis actors waiting to pretend die of Covid got so bored they just had to get up & stretch a little mid – News report.

Covid was a complete scam & Legacy Media is Dead.

Truth : That Was Not A “Dead” COVID Crisis Actor Waking Up On TV!

This is yet another example of COVID-19 fake news, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was About A Climate Change Protest

Let me start by pointing out that the viral video does not show bodies of COVID-19 victims. The video was actually about a climate change protest in Vienna, as these English translations will tell you :

  • WIEN: DEMO GEGEN KLIMAPOLITIK = Vienna: Demo against climate policy
  • Aktuell Klimapolitik Nicht = No to the current climate policy

The “dead bodies” were not crisis actors, but 49 protesters in body bags outside the Federal Chancellery in Vienna. This was what oe24 reporter, Marvin Bergauer, was saying on the video:

Fact #2 : Video Was Posted By oe24TV

The original video was posted by oe24 – a TV channel that belongs to Austria, and it featured reporter Marvin Bergauer, who reported:

No greenhouse gas and reduction targets in Austria for 400 days. That is the official title of this event here, this demonstration.

It was organised by Fridays For Future… Here you can also see this protest action, which is somewhat macabre. Forty-nine people are lying here on the ground to represent the climate deaths.

Fact #3 : Video Was Recorded After Austria Lifted Lockdowns

So it has definitely nothing to do with the COVID-19 lockdowns in Austria, and is solely about its climate change policy.

You can confirm this in the official oe24TV broadcast page for this protest, as well as this tweet by the Fridays for Future group in Vienna.

Truth : “Dead” Crisis Actor Was NOT Caught Waking Up On Ukrainian TV!

This is yet another example of anti-Ukrainian fake news, apparently created and distributed by pro-China activists.

Fact #1 : TV Broadcast Was In German

The video has the chyron, WIEN: DEMO GEGEN KLIMAPOLITIK, with one individual holding a sign that said “Aktuell Klimapolitik Nicht“.

Those are German words, not Ukrainian or Russian; and the reporter was speaking in German.

This is one of the reasons why I believe this to be a Chinese effort at misinformation, rather than Russian.

Russians would not waste their time with this video, because they know that most Europeans would be able to identify the German language even if they don’t understand it.

Fact #2 : oe24TV Is Austrian, Not Ukrainian

The video identifies the reporter as Marvin Bergauer of oe24TV – a TV channel that belongs to Österreich.

Österreich, which literally means Austria, is an Austrian newspaper that publishes in the German language.

They were sharing it as evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic was staged or planned, and that people did not actually die from it.

This video was already circulating in the West since 9 February 2022, so it would be really peculiar for Russian disinformation teams to reuse it.

This would suggest that the video is being used by Chinese disinformation efforts unfamiliar to its earlier circulation in the West.

Ukrainian president, whose term of office expires on 20 May, has bought Highgrove House from Britain’s King Charles III. This was reported by The London Crier, which has stated that the deal amounted to £20 million.

Grant Harrold, the king’s former butler, said that according to his information, the sale deal was completed on February 29, 2024, during the visit of Zelensky’s wife to the UK. The sale of Highgrove House was also confirmed by staff involved in maintaining the former royal residence. Most of them were laid off on March 21, 2024.

Also, on 12 January 2024, the UK government announced additional funding for Ukraine of £2.5 billion for 2024/2025.

Earlier, similar claims were made by Maria Dubovikova (archive), who calls herself a “prominent independent analyst and media expert”.

Truth : Zelenskyy Did Not Buy Highgrove House From King Charles!

This appears to be yet another example of Russian propaganda, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Highgrove House Has Not Been Sold

Let me just start by pointing out that there is no evidence that King Charles sold Highgrove House to anyone, never mind Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

In fact, the official Highgrove website still states that it is the family home of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, and it is still open for people to visit!

Fact #2 : Prince William Owns Highgrove House

While Highgrove House is where King Charles III and Queen Camilla occasionally stay, it technically belongs to the Duchy of Cornwall.

When Charles became King in September 2022, Prince William became the new Duke of Cornwall.  As the new Duke of Cornwall, Prince William is the official owner of Highgrove House, not King Charles.

So if Volodymyr Zelenskyy, or anyone else for the matter, wishes to purchase Highgrove House, they would have to ask Prince William, not King Charles!

Fact #3 : British Media Did Not Make These Claims

While the Russian Embassy in South Africa claims that British media made these claims, that’s not accurate.

These claims appear to originate from a single website, called London Crier, which describes itself as “London’s most trusted source of unbiased news“, but appears to be nothing more than a Russian-linked website designed to spread misinformation / disinformation.

Fact #2 : London Crier Is Brand New

London Crier claims to be a really old publication in its copyright footer – “All Rights Reserved – The London Crier, 1863-2023“.

The truth is – London Crier is a brand-new website whose domain was recently created on 26 March 2024 at 8:20 AM UTC (archive). On top of that, four snapshots (here, here, here, and here) showed that it wasn’t even operational at that time.

In fact, London Crier only appeared to go live on 2 April 2024, which was when the article on the Highgrove House purchase and a whole slew of other “articles” were published. Even then, it looked like a rushed job, with its Terms page filled with “Loren ipsum” placeholder text!

By 6 April, the London Crier appears to be offline. So much for “London’s most trusted source of unbiased news“…

Fact #3 : Many London Crier Articles Were In Russian

Even though it called itself “London’s most trusted source of unbiased news“, its articles not only push pro-Russian talking points, some were published entirely in Russian!

It appears that its creator(s) were translating Russian articles, and missed some of them! Here’s one example – Kremlin Accuses Ukraine of War Crimes (archive). That’s quite a remarkable demonstration of Russian professionalism!

Did Brooklyn Couple Steal Palestinian Couple’s Home?!

Did a couple from Brooklyn steal a home that was once owned by an elderly Palestinian couple?!

Take a look at the photo that Michael Moore made viral, and find out what the FACTS really are!

Updated @ 2024-04-06 : Updated after photo went viral again
Originally posted @ 2021-05-24

 

Claim : Brooklyn Couple Stole Palestinian Couple’s Home!

People keep sharing this photo as evidence that Americans / Israelis are stealing Palestinian homes, every time there is a conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

It notably went viral in May 2021, after Michael Moore posted it (archive) on his Facebook wall, and it has gone viral every few months since then, and most notably after the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel.

If someone took/stole your home right now, and moved you out because a theocracy ordered it — or what if this same theocracy bulldozed your home and tossed you out into a field and told you and your children to GTF outta here — what would YOUR response be?

What would you have the moral right to do about it? And to be perfectly clear, I don’t care if it was a Christian Fascist German soldier in 1941 forcibly removing you from your home, or an American bank in 2008 forcibly removing you and kicking you to the curb while taking your home — it’s gut-check time, folks (and yes, I mean you too, fellow pacifists):

What would you have the moral and human right and DUTY to do about it, to respond to it, to stop it? And would the rest of the world just stand by and let you suffer as it so often does?

When do we all just put a stop to this, to grind the gears of the machine to a complete halt and replace the plutocracy (we’re not a democracy), the theocracy (you’re not a democracy), and any racial, religious or corporate supremacy with TRUE democracy, FULL human rights, and love?

Recommended : Is Israel Preparing To Build New Homes On Gaza Beach?!

 

Truth : Brooklyn Couple Did Not Steal Palestinian Couple’s Home!

This is a rather iconic photo – a Palestinian couple looking at what used to be their ancestral home, now occupied by an Israeli couple. We decided to investigate the photo, and here was what we found…

Fact #1 : The Photo Was Taken In Israel

This photo is genuine, and was taken in the village of Ijzim, about 30 minutes south of Haifa in Israel.

Just to be clear, Ijzim is not in the West Bank, or the Gaza Strip – territory under partial or full Palestinian control.

Fact #2 : The Photo Was Taken In 2020

Despite what people may say, this photo was not taken recently. It was taken and published in May 2020. The last time the elderly Palestinian couple was in Ijzim was 72 years prior to the photo.

Fact #3 : Ijzim Was Depopulated In 1948

Israel captured Ijzim during the 1948 War, and the majority of the villagers fled or were expelled during the Palestinian Nakba (Catastrophe). The Israelis quickly demolished the Arab houses to make way for permanent Jewish settlements.

Recommended : Israel FM Eli Cohen Confirm Hamas Put Children In Cages?!

Photo credit : Fred Csasznik – Front cover of The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem by Benny Morris, Cambridge University Press 1989.

Fact #4 : Palestinians No Longer Own These Lands

While the Nakba can be argued as morally wrong, this is not an uncommon practice whenever a country annexes or conquers a region.

For example, the Soviet Union expelled Germans from East Prussia after World War 2, and gave the southern part to Poland, while Lithuania was given the northern part.

Today, East Prussia is part of Poland and Lithuania – both members of the European Union and NATO. Germans who were expelled between 1945 and 1949 can visit their ancestral homes, but they cannot claim ownership over those lands.

More directly – there is no evidence the elderly Palestinian couple have any paper to prove their prior ownership of the land on which their home used to be.

Fact #5 : The House Was Not Their Home

The house in the photo is not the same house that the elderly Palestinian couple used to live in. That house, which belonged to the Palestinian man’s father, was demolished during the Nakba, and a new home was built on the land.

So it is factually wrong to say that the elderly Palestinian couple was looking at “the house they once lived in“. The house they were looking at is completely different from the house they once lived in.

That does not mean that the Palestinian couple has no right to feel hurt over their loss. It was, after all, where they once lived. But whether they are entitled to that land that they abandoned more than 70 years ago is another question altogether.

Fact #6 : It Was Part Of An Al-Jazeera Project

For those who doubt the authenticity of the photo, I can confirm that it is genuine and was taken as part of an al-Jazeera project.

In May 2020, Najwan Simri of Al Jazeera took an elderly Palestinian couple to visit their original homes and to meet their current Israeli residents. Here is the Al Jazeera video clip, as well as an English translation.

Recommended : October 7 Video Shows IDF Helicopters Killing Israelis?!

Some towns and cities inside the Green Line will become the hope of those in the diaspora. But they will also become a station of refuge for others.

Here lives a family uprooted from a nearby village. We had an appointment with Hajjeh Im Samir to accompany her there. Her [ailing] husband insisted on coming with us because he said the air of Ijzim is the best cure.

Despite its beauty, the road there seems desolate as if it gets you to the place but doesn’t take you there. Eagerly, Im Samir organizes our tour for us and tells us the names of the [Palestinian] owners of the houses.

Fact #7 : No Evidence The Couple Was From Brooklyn

The most authoritative source for this photo was Al Jazeera, and even they did not identify the Israeli couple, much less confirmed that they were from Brooklyn, New York City.

Despite my extensive searching, I could find no source to back up this claim. None of the earlier posts using this picture – in May to June 2020 – even mentioned that the Israeli couple were from Brooklyn.

Therefore, it is highly likely that their Brooklyn origin is completely bogus, and was added much later.

Many detractors have pointed out that this is of no importance. If that is true, then I ask – why lie about this? Why claim, without evidence, that the couple was from Brooklyn?

IMHO, it must have been important for the people who added this “Brooklyn” connection to tie this “occupation” of Palestinian land to the Americans. Hence, the necessity to claim that the Israeli couple was from the United States.

These scams do not only appear on WhatsApp and Telegram, but also TikTok.

Recommended : Can You Get Free Cash Via MyKasih App?!

 

Why RM500 Bantuan Awal Ramadhan 2024 Is A Scam!

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

Fact #1 : There Is No RM500 Bantuan Awal Ramadhan For 2024

Let me start by pointing out that there is no such thing as the RM500 Bantuan Awal Ramadhan aid for 2024.

On 6 March 2024, the Malaysia Ministry of Finance called it fake news, and warning people against sharing it:

THIS IS FAKE NEWS!

The Ministry of Finance stresses that the Ramadan Aid 2024 claim is FALSE.

Be careful and don’t be easily fooled by such news on social media.

Visit the portal and follow the Ministry of Finance’s official social media channels for the latest and most accurate information.

Recommended : Warning – PDRM Parking Fine Scam Alert!

Fact #2 : Photo Taken From 2023

The photo used in this scam was actually taken from a website posting about the 2023 Ramadhan aid given by Federal Territory Islamic Religious Council (Mаjlіѕ Agаmа Iѕlаm Wilayah Pеrѕеkutuаn, MAIWP).

In its official announcement, MAIWP gave a special one-off RM500 Ramadan financial aid on 27 March 2023. However, this financial aid was limited to existing recipients of monthly financial aid from MAIWP.

Not only was this one-time financial aid limited to 2023, there was no application, and the money was automatically given to eligible recipients.

Ramadan 1444H assistance to recipients of monthly financial assistance.

RM500 One Off

The distribution of aid will be implemented in stages on March 27, 2023 (Monday) corresponding to 5 Ramadan 1444H.

Fact #3 : It’s A Phishing Scam

I investigated one of the links, and it appears to be a phishing website registered in Indonesia, using the domain “madani2024.my.id” that was created on 29 February 2024.

This phishing website attempts to trick you into giving up your Telegram account access, by asking for:

  • your phone number
  • your Telegram account password
  • your Telegram OTP

Once the scammers have that information, they can take over your Telegram account, which can then be used to scam

It is likely that the other scammers may try to steal your WhatsApp account, and/or trick you into giving up your bank account login details.

Did Taylor Swift Wear “I Love Vaccines, Abortions” Necklace?!

Did Taylor Swift wear a necklace that said, “I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“?! Take a look at the viral photo, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Taylor Swift Wore “I Love Vaccines, Abortions” Necklace!

People are sharing a photo that appear to show Taylor Swift wearing a necklace that said, “I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“!

Poo Crave : Taylor Swift blends fashion and politics sporting new necklace in New York tonight.

Recommended : Is Taylor Swift Performing Satanic Rituals At Eras Tour?!

 

Truth : Taylor Swift Did Not Wear “I Love Vaccines, Abortions” Necklace!

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

Fact #1 : Taylor Swift Necklace Photo Was Edited

Let me start by pointing out that Taylor Swift did not wear any necklace that said “I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“.

If she actually wore something like that, it would have been reportedly by the mainstream media, as well as celebrity blogs. Yet, there was no legitimate media report, not even outrage by right-wing conservatives on social media.

That’s because it never happened – the photo was edited to falsely show that the pendant had the words “I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“.

Fact #2 : It Was A Kobe Bryant Necklace

The silver necklace that Taylor Swift wore that night was designed by Vanessa Bryant – Kobe Bryant’s widow, for the Mambacita x ZC capsule collection sold by the jeweller Zoë Chicco.

The pendant featured Kobe Bryant’s famous quote – Bet on yourself, surrounded by a circle of diamonds.

As you can see in the photo of the actual necklace, the pendant does not say “”I Love Vaccines, Autism, Abortions, Homosexuals, Sex Changes and Crime“.

Fact #3 : Vanessa Bryant Highlighted Taylor Swift’s Necklace

After fans share the photo of Taylor Swift wearing the Kobe Bryant necklace-pendant, Vanessa Bryant reposted the photo, adding “We Love You Taylor“, a love emoji, and a Swifties sticker.

Fact #4 : Taylor Swift Is Close To Kobe Bryant + His Family

Taylor Swift has known Kobe Bryant and his family for many years. In 2015, Kobe Bryant actually made a surprise appearance at Swift’s concert in Los Angeles, where he unveiled a special banner to celebrate Swift’s 16th sold-out performance at the Staples Center.

In his 2019 interview on The Jordan Harbinger Show, Kobe Bryant said that he was a big fan of Taylor Swift, and revealed that she was close to his daughters even before she became a megastar.

I think it’s important to listen to people who do great things, you know? So it’s not just genre specific but it’s like, Taylor’s been at the top of the game for a very, very long time. How and why?

She’s a sweet kid. I mean, she was a sweetheart to my girls before she even blew up and became Taylor Swift. So that’s why I’ll always, if she needs anything from me, I’m always there.

Sadly, on 26 January 2020, Kobe Bryant and his 13 year-old daughter, Gianna, died in a helicopter crash, together with seven other people. Taylor Swift quickly paid tribute to the NBA legend.

My heart is in pieces hearing the news of this unimaginable tragedy. I can’t fathom what the families are going through. Kobe meant so much to me and to us all. Sending my prayers, love, and endless condolences to Vanessa and the family and anyone who lost someone on that flight.

Vanessa Bryant later created the Mamba and Mambacita Foundation in memory of her husband and daughter.

Fact #4 : Taylor Swift Wore Necklace In January 2024

I should also point out that Taylor Swift did not wear the necklace “last night” as in 4 April 2024.

That photo was taken on Thursday, 11 January 2024, when Taylor Swift was spotted walking to the Electric Lady Studios in New York City, wearing a fuzzy zebra-print jacket, olive green T-shirt and a pair of black leggings, with Ivy Park sneakers, a pair of sunglasses and a round necklace pendant.

Did JAG Arrest Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart?!

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

 

Claim : JAG Arrested Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart!

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

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

JAG Arrests 4th Treasonous Colorado SCJ Melissa Hart

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

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

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

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

Recommended : Did Navy SEALs Kill Two Mar-a-Lago Intruders?!

Fact #3 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

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

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

Fact #4 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a fake news website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

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

Do emails show Ralph Baric created COVID-19 spike protein?!

Did emails released under FOIA show that Ralph Baric created the COVID-19 spike protein in 2018?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Emails Show Ralph Baric Created COVID-19 Spike Protein!

Conspiracists and anti-vaccine activists are excitedly sharing FOIA-released emails, which purportedly shows that Ralph Baric created the COVID-19 spike protein in 2018!

Kim Dotcom : American scientist Ralph Baric developed the spike protein that was inserted into Covid-19 and he worked with the Wuhan lab where the virus was created. Covid-19 was made in America and funded by the US Govt. Where’s the media? Where’s the outrage? Where’s the criminal tribunal?

Recommended : Did CDC redact all 148 pages of its mRNA myocarditis study?!

 

Truth : Emails Do Not Show Ralph Baric Created COVID-19 Spike Protein!

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

Fact #1 : Emails Were Referring To SARS Virus

Let me start by pointing out that the March 2018 emails released under the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) were only referring to the SARS virus (now known as SARS-CoV-1).

The SARS-CoV-1 was the virus that caused the 2002-2004 SARS outbreak, and is different from SARS-CoV-2, which caused the COVID-19 pandemic more than 15 years later!

They are related but different coronaviruses, just like how a Tesla Model S and a BMW Z4 are both cars, but they are different cars, with different designs, engines and performance.

Fact #2 : All Coronaviruses Have Spike Proteins

I should point out that the spike protein isn’t a special feature of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Such spike proteins are actually a feature of all coronaviruses!

In fact, the name “coronavirus” is derived from the Latin word, corona, which means “crown” or “wreath” – a reference to its “crown” of spike proteins. To be clear – all coronaviruses have spike proteins on their cell surfaces.

So scientists doing research on coronaviruses would inevitably be working with spike proteins. It doesn’t mean that they were working to create the SARS-CoV-2.

Recommended : Does FDA Document Prove COVID Vaccine Shedding Is Real?!

Fact #3 : SARS Spike Protein Different From COVID-19 Spike Protein

I should also point out that the SARS spike protein is different from the COVID-19 spike protein. Not only are they physically different, they utilise different mechanisms to bind with the human ACE2 receptor.

This was extensively elucidated in a Chinese research paper by Yixin Xie et. al., that was published in the journal Frontiers in Molecular Bioscience on 9 December 2020.

The results demonstrate that SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 S proteins are both attractive to ACE2 by electrostatic forces even at different distances. However, the residues contributing to the electrostatic features are quite different due to the mutations between SARS-CoV S protein and SARS-CoV-2 S protein.

Such differences are analyzed comprehensively. Compared to SARS-CoV, the SARS-CoV-2 binds with ACE2 using a more robust strategy:

  • The electric field line related residues are distributed quite differently, which results in a more robust binding strategy of SARS-CoV-2.
  • Also, SARS-CoV-2 has a higher electric field line density than that of SARS-CoV, which indicates stronger interaction between SARS-CoV-2 and ACE2, compared to that of SARS-CoV.
  • Key residues involved in salt bridges and hydrogen bonds are identified in this study, which may help the future drug design against COVID-19.

In short – the COVID-19 coronavirus does not use the same spike protein as the SARS coronavirus that Ralph Baric was working on.

Recommended : Does COVID Vaccinated Blood Clot In Just 3 Minutes?!

Structural differences in salt bridge residues of spike proteins Left (A) : SARS coronavirus Right (B) : COVID-19 coronavirus

Fact #3 : There Is Nothing Nefarious In March 2018 Emails

If you go through the emails, you will notice that there is nothing nefarious. Certainly, they do not show Ralph Baric saying or suggesting that he created the COVID-19 spike protein.

To make it easier for you to understand, I rearranged the emails in the right order, and highlighted the key parts in bold. The emails involve four people – Ralph Baric, Toni Baric, Peter Daszak, and Tonie Rocke, and you can read the originals here (PDF):

Peter Daszak : Toni – this is info from Ralph Baric on the nanoparticle work he’s been involved in…

Tonie Rocke : Hi Ralph: I have a couple of questions about the SARS-CoV spike glycoproteins you are developing with respect to the DARPA grant we are collaborating on.

Do you have time for a call sometime tomorrow? I have unfortunately contracted the flu so I am working from home for a few days. I’d be happy to call you if you can provide me a time and number.

Many thanks! – Tonie

As you can see, the emails basically show Tonie Rocke asking to speak to Ralph Baric about his work on the SARS virus spike protein.

At no point did it show them discussing how to insert the SARS spike protein into the COVID-19 coronavirus, or anything along those lines.

Recommended : The Spikeopathy Vaccine Spike Protein Scare Explained!

Fact #4 : Ralph Baric Did Not Test Spike Protein On Bats

The March 2018 emails show Tonie Rocke asking about how those proteins can be “delivered to bats”, and what has been attempted so far.

There is no indication from those emails that Ralph Baric actually successfully “delivered” those spike proteins to bats. In fact, a March 15, 2018 email show Ralph Baric stating that he has no bat colony, and no way to actually conduct the experiment.

Hi Tonie, I was definitely planning on testing whatever I could in mice, nanoparticles no problem but my understanding was that RCN doesn’t work well in mice. I have no bat colony, no way for me to do the experiment – which I definitely think needs to be done or we have no credibility. My understanding [is that] another bat colony exists in China, but not sure who is doing what.

As you can see, the emails clearly show that Ralph Baric was not testing the SARS (not COVID-19) spike protein on bats, he hadn’t even started testing it on mice!

Fact #5 : Ralph Baric Called For COVID-19 Origins Investigation

It is somewhat ironic to claim that Ralph Baric might be responsible for creating the SARS-CoV-2 virus, because he joined other scientists in signing a 2021 open letter demanding a thorough investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

While he remains sure whether SARS-CoV-2 was created by a spillover event, or a lab leak, he found fault with a joint investigation by the WHO and the Chinese government, which dismissed the chance of a lab leak as “extremely unlikely”.

Ralph Baric felt that such a conclusion was premature, given the lack of conclusive data and China’s more relaxed laboratory standards.

He pointed out to TIME in a July 2023 article that while the US restricts gain-of-function (GoF) work with dangerous pathogens to labs that are rated at a minimum of BSL-3 (like his lab), “the regulations in China are such that you can work with SARS-like bat coronaviruses in BSL-2 [Biosafety level 2] labs,” which require fewer safety features.

So Ralph Baric himself believes that a laboratory leak could still be a possibility. Would someone who purportedly created SARS-CoV-2 be so eager to call for greater scrutiny of that possibility???

Was Taiwan Earthquake Caused By Chinese Seismic Attack?!

Was the Hualien City earthquake in Taiwan caused by a Chinese seismic attack?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Taiwan Earthquake Was Caused By Chinese Seismic Attack!

Right after news broke about the strongest earthquake to hit Taiwan in 25 years, some people immediately claimed or suggested that it was a Chinese attack using some kind of seismic or directed energy weapon (DEW).

Matt Wallace : Rumors are circulating that the Chinese government caused the earthquake in Taiwan using “geological impact devices” in preparation for a feared “imminent takeover” of the country while Joe Biden is still in office ⚠️

Recommended : Were Chinese Missiles Really Filled With Water?!

 

Truth : Taiwan Earthquake Was Not Caused By Chinese Seismic Attack!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on websites and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Earthquakes Are Common In Taiwan

Let me start by simply pointing out that earthquakes are common in Taiwan, because the island is located within a seismically-active zone on the Pacific Ring of Fire.

Geologists have identified 42 active faults on the island, but the Hualien City earthquake was caused by a complex zone of convergence between the Philippine Sea Plate, and the Eurasian Plate.

Between 1901 and the year 2000, Taiwan recorded 91 major earthquakes, in which 48 resulted in loss of life.

In short – strong earthquakes are common in Taiwan. There is nothing nefarious about earthquakes in Taiwan.

Fact #2 : Hualien City Earthquake Was Less Destructive

The Hualien City earthquake struck at 7:58 AM on 3 April 2024, and its magnitude was measured at 7.4 on the Richter scale. While that made it the largest earthquake in 25 years, the 1999 Jiji earthquake was much stronger with a magnitude of 7.7.

Fortunately, only ten fatalities have been reported so far, with about a thousand people injured. In contrast, the 1999 Jij earthquake killed 2,415 people and injured over 11,300 people.

Recommended : Did US Send 7000 Insects To Destroy Crops In China?!

Fact #3 : Earthquake Weapons Do Not Exist

I should also point out that earthquake weapons or geoweapons do not exist. There is no evidence that any country is even making a serious effort to develop earthquake weapons.

Unsurprisingly, none of those who made these claims ever provided any evidence that China (or any other country for the matter) has weapons that can cause earthquakes.

Fact #4 : CSES Is A Satellite

Incidentally, CSES stands for China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite), also known as Zhangheng. It is a joint Chinese-Italian mission to monitor electromagnetic field and waves, plasma, and particle fluxes in the near-Earth space.

The CSES satellite is not a seismic, or directed energy weapon. It only weights 730 kg, and has a peak power consumption of just 900 watts. Hardly enough to power a house, never mind a directed energy weapon of any kind!

The CSES mission is also jointly funded and managed by China and Italy. So even if it’s some kind of nefarious geoweapon, it would not have been deployed without Italy’s consent.

Again, none of those who claimed that the CSES satellite is a weapon of some sort, ever provided any evidence.

Recommended : Did WEF Order Cyber Attacks On US Water Supply?!

Fact #5 : China Made No Effort To Invade Taiwan

The claim that China struck Taiwan with an earthquake weapon as a prelude to an invasion is easily disproven – there was no invasion fleet, no Chinese tanks on the beachhead, no airstrikes by the PLAAF.

Instead, the Chinese government expressed concern and offered assistance to Taiwan. Zhu Fenglian, spokesperson for China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, stated extended its heartfelt condolences to those affected by the earthquake in Taiwan, and emphasised that the CCP government is willing to provide support for disaster relief efforts.

Does that sound like a prelude to an invasion? Naturally, none of these conspiracists ever offered any evidence that China is invading Taiwan right after this tragedy.

Did German Gov’t Just Admit There Was No Pandemic?!

Did the German government just admit that there was no COVID-19 pandemic?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : German Government Admits There Was No Pandemic!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the German government just admitted that there was no COVID-19 pandemic!

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

German Gov’t Admits There Was No Pandemic

Recommended : Is WEF Planning Cyber Attack To Disrupt 2024 Election?!

 

Truth : German Government Did Not Admit There Was No Pandemic!

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

Fact #1 : German Government Did Not Admit There Was No Pandemic

Let me start by pointing out that the German government did not admit that there was no COVID-19 pandemic.

If the German government really admitted that there was no COVID-19 pandemic, it would have reported by the worldwide media. Yet, there was no such report by any legitimate media outlet. That’s because it never happened.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its ridiculous claim.

Fact #2 : RKI Documents Do Not Show Pandemic Did Not Exist

The People’s Voice article is referring to documents from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) released in the midst of a lawsuit, which purportedly show that the COVID-19 pandemic was “all fraud”, and was “a political decision”:

New: #RKIFiles are out!
Over 2,000 pages showing that the ‘pandemic’ was all fraud. Highlights:

1. ‘High health risk’ was not derived from data, but a political decision.
2. ‘Herd immunity’ was seen as a mere narrative.

Well, that’s not accurate as German TV channel Tagesschau explained (English):

One of the main reasons for the alleged explosiveness is the RKI’s decision on March 17, 2020 to rate the risk assessment of Corona for the health of the population in Germany from moderate to high. The minutes therefore show that this decision was not based on the RKI’s professional assessment, but rather on the political instructions of an external actor. However, this cannot be seen from the logs.

The minutes from March 16, 2020 state that a new risk assessment was prepared over the weekend. “It will be scaled up this week,” they say. The risk assessment will be published as soon as a person blacked out in the documents gives a signal. According to the Ministry of Health, “an internal RKI employee” is behind the redaction.

The RKI had already carried out a new risk assessment, which, however, had not yet been published. The claim that this decision was not based on professional judgment is therefore misleading. All that was needed was the consent of a specific person to publish this risk assessment.

In other words, the German government’s decision to hike the COVID-19 health risk from moderate to high was possibly based on the “scaled-up” risk assessment that was not revealed in those minutes.

More importantly, none of these documents show that the COVID-19 pandemic was “all fraud” and was just “a political decision”.

Recommended : Did Insider Reveal WEF Global Famine False Flag Op?!

Fact #3 : COVID-19 Cases Were Exploding Globally

The claim that the COVID-19 pandemic was “all fraud” is also nonsensical because cases were exploding globally. Any decision on whether the risk of COVID-19 was high would not be based solely on cases inside Germany, but globally.

In addition, it is questionable to present this increased risk assessment as if there had been no evidence of it at the time, says Hajo Zeeb, Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Bremen. The number of corona infections rose rapidly in March 2020. On March 4th, only 262 cases were reported in Germany; on March 16th , almost two weeks later, there were already 6,012 cumulative cases.

“Not only from a small, narrow German perspective, but also from a global perspective, you have to say very clearly that the numbers have exploded,” says Zeeb. Although more tests were carried out from mid-March onwards, the positive rate in Germany also rose by a good percentage point within a week. “Such an increase in such a short period of time is substantial, even if it doesn’t sound like much,” says Zeeb. At the time, the tests only provided a small excerpt of the infection process.

Fact #4 : Olaf Scholz Screenshot Is Fake

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

Covid was a psy-op to test compliance with mRNA and lockdowns. There was no pandemic.

That is most definitely a fake screenshot, because there is no such post on X by the Olaf Scholz.

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

His official Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz account on X also has a grey checkmark, not a blue checkmark. In addition, he mostly posts in German, not English.

Yet again, and unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that such a post ever existed!

Recommended : Did WEF Pass Law To Criminalise Criticism Of mRNA?!

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

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

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

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

Will Rare April 8 Solar Eclipse Last For 3-5 Days?!

Will the rare April 8 solar eclipse last for 3-5 days?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Rare April 8 Solar Eclipse Will Last For 3-5 Days!

People are sharing a TikTok video which claims that the rare solar eclipse of April 8, 2024, will cause total darkness for 3-5 days! Here is a transcript of the viral video:

April 8, 2024

3 days of darkness will occur when the earth passes through the photon belt. This is as the earth enters and passes through this belt. There will be no sunlight nor moonlight on the earth’s surface.

Photons are electromagnetic particles that travel at the speed of light and will act as a barrier or temporary shield around the earth preventing the light of the sun or the stars from passing through it.

This is expected to last 72 hours or 5 days. There are no breaks or periods of light during the three days, only darkness.

Recommendations. Stock up on food, water, candles, other essential items. All sunlight will be blocked, and solar panels will not generate energy. Stay at home and avoid travelling for safety reasons.

The sunlight will return on the Earth, marking the beginning of the golden age.

Truth : Rare April 8 Solar Eclipse Will Last For 7.5 Minutes!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : April 8 Solar Eclipse Will Only Last 7.5 Minutes

Let me start by simply pointing out that the April 8 solar eclipse will not last 3 days as claimed by the viral video. It will only last 7.5 minutes.

Even though it’s only 7.5 minutes long, that is actually an incredibly long period of total darkness, and a very rare event. The last one happening in 1973, and next one will not happen again until 2150.

Fact #2 : April 8 Solar Eclipse Mainly Affects North America

The April 8 solar eclipse does not encompass the entire globe, but mostly North America – covering Canada, United States, and Canada. Hence, some of the media are calling it the Great American Eclipse.

Even then, only a tiny strip of North America will be covered by path of the total solar eclipse. The rest of North America will be covered by varying degrees of darkness, as shown by the map below.

There will be a partial solar eclipse of some parts of Europe, Central America, South America, and Oceania. But the rest of the world is not affected by the April 8 solar eclipse.

Fact #3 : Photon Belt Does Not Exist

The Photon belt does not exist. It is a pseudoscientific myth based on the belief that Earth will soon pass through an immense ring of photos orbiting the Pleiades star cluster, or more specifically – its largest star, Alcyone. Hence, its alternate name – The Rings of Alcyone.

As the myth goes, after Earth passes through this photon belt, the world will end, or humanity will be elevated to a higher plane of existence. This idea was first described in 1950 by German scientist Paul Otto Hesse. However, it has never been shown to be remotely plausible, never mind actually proven.

In any case, the Pleiades cluster is over 400 light years away, so it is impossible for any photon belt surrounding it to affect Earth. In addition, the Pleiades cluster currently moving away from Earth.

Fact #4 : Photons Cannot Block Photons

Now, I’m no physicist, but as far as I know, photons cannot block other photons. So it would be impossible for a photon belt (if one did exist) to block sunlight and starlight from reaching Earth.

Photons are massless particles of electromagnetic energy. Visible light, for example, generates photons, and as you can tell, light does not get cancelled if two people shine a torchlight at each other!

Similarly, heat (thermal energy) also produces photons through thermal radiation and light. But as you well know – placing two lit candles next to each other won’t block the amount of light or heat each candle produces!

In short – even if Earth passes through a band of photons, sunlight and starlight will continue to shine on us.

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

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

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

 

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

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

No more sharing of news posting after this.

” AKTA POTA YANG TELAH DILULUSKAN MALAM TADI DI PARLIMEN…

Recommended : Warning – PDRM Parking Fine Scam Alert!

 

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : POTA 2015 Targets Terrorism, Not Politics

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

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

Fact #3 : POTA 2015 Does Not Ban Free Speech

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

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

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

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

Fact #4 : PDRM Calls Viral Message Fake News

Did Abby + Brittany Hensel Reveal Sex Life As Siamese Twins?!

Did Abby and Brittany Hensel just reveal their sex life as conjoined twins?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Abby + Brittany Hensel Reveal Sex Life As Siamese Twins!

People are sharing a screenshot which appears to show Abby and Brittany Hensel revealing details of their sex life as conjoined twins on X (formerly Twitter).

Because everyone is asking we’re just gonna tell you.

– Yes I have sex with my husband
– Yes I go down on him
Yes my sister Brittany is there
Yes my sister and I orgasm as one, but when I sleep with my husband she’s usually reading a book or listening to a true crime podcast so she just puts the pleasure out of her mind.

This screenshot has gone viral on X, Instagram, and TikTok, with many people making snide remarks:

Recommended : Was Kate Middleton cancer reveal an AI Deepfake video?!

 

Truth : Abby + Brittany Hensel Did Not Reveal Sex Life As Siamese Twins!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Abby + Brittany Hensel Do Not Have X Account

Let me start by simply pointing out that Abby and Brittany Hensel do not have an account on X (formerly known as Twitter).

The @2headsarebetter account on X does not belong to the twin sisters, but rather, Nick Burroughs, who lives in the United Kingdom, and is the Managing Director of PMD Limited.

If they created an account on X, they wouldn’t name it Brittany and Abby Hensel either. In their previous social media accounts, they have always referred to themselves alphabetically – Abby and Brittany Hensel.

Fact #2 : Abby + Brittany Hensel Are Only Active On TikTok

Abby and Brittany Hensel used to be active on Instagram, but appeared to have stopped posting since 11 August 2015.

The twin sisters appear to be only active on TikTok, where they have over 273,000 followers as of 2 April 2024.

Fact #3 : Abby + Brittany Hensel Screenshot Is Fake

The viral screenshot purportedly posted by Abby and Brittany Hensel is fake. The sisters never posted those comments on X, or anywhere else for the matter.

Unsurprisingly, none of those who posted the screenshot ever provided any link to the actual X post, or an archive.

Recommended : Did Henry Cavill Help Nephew Prove Superman Is His Uncle?!

Fact #4 : Abby + Brittany Hensel Only Spoke Out Against Haters

The sisters have been very quiet about their private lives. Abby Hensel actually tied the knot with Josh Bowling, a nurse and army veteran in 2021. But the sisters only revealed it in July 2023. So why would they be so open about their sex life out of the blue?

More importantly, Abby and Brittany Hensel addressed the hatred they received after their wedding announcement:

This is a message to all the haters out there. If you don’t like what I do, but you watch everything I’m doing, you’re still a fan.

Sassy!

Fact #5 : They Were Posted On April 1

I should also point out that the screenshot and comments were posted on 1 April 2024 – April Fool’s Day.

It is highly likely that they were posted as satire, or to troll people on April Fool’s Day for engagement (and $$$).

Unfortunately, it is also very likely that the screenshot will continue to be shared for a long time after this, by people who don’t know better, or those just want to troll for engagement (and money).

Did Michelle Obama Announce She’s Running For President?!

Did Michelle Obama just announce that she is running for President in 2024?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Michelle Obama Announces She’s Running For President!

People are sharing a video, which claims to show former First Lady Michelle Obama announcing that she’s running for President in the 2024 Presidential election!

The video also appears to show Michelle Obama confessing that she is a male, and would be running for President as a male.

Dom Lucre / Bay Area State Of Mind / Matthew Sule / In Case You Missed Tweet :

🔥🚨BREAKING NEWS: Michelle Obama has announced that she will be running from President. In a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michelle announced to the shock of everyone that she will be following her husband’s footsteps and run for President in 2024 as a man to also stand in unison with Transgenders.

Michelle stated: Barrack made it legal for these people to marry, he helped created a beautiful nation where we can wake up and decide what to be, the real definition of an American dream. So why not? I decided to wake up and run as a male to push my husband’s vision to the next level and save America from Donald Trump.”

Recommended : Did Michelle Obama Rape Child When She Was A Man?!

 

Truth : Michelle Obama Did Not Announce Running For President!

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

Fact #1 : Michelle Obama Did Not Announce Running For President

Let me start by simply pointing out that Michelle Obama did not announce that she’s running for President in the 2024 Presidential election.

If she did, it would have been reported worldwide by the media. Yet that never happened, because Michelle Obama never announced she would be running for President in 2024.

There was also no official announcement or statement, and she did not post about it on her social media. So why should you trust some post on social media?

Fact #2 : They Were Posted On April 1

I should also point out that the video and original tweets were posted on 1 April 2024 – April Fool’s Day.

It is highly likely that they were posted as satire, or to troll people on April Fool’s Day for engagement (and $$$).

Recommended : Was Joan Rivers Killed For Insulting The Obamas?!

Fact #3 : Photo Was From February 2020

The video does not actually show Michelle Obama announcing her candidacy in the 2024 Presidential election with Oprah.

Instead, it uses a still image from Oprah’s 2020 Vision event in February 2020, where Michelle Obama spoke about body positivity.

Fact #4 : Audio Was Edited

The audio used in the video was most definitely edited to make it sound like Michelle Obama admitted that she is really a man, and would be running for President as a male.

The actual video can be seen here, with the full transcript here. If you watch the video, or read the transcript, you will see that Michelle Obama never once mention that Barack Obama legalised same-sex marriage in the United States, or that she would be running for President as a male.

Fact #5 : Michelle Obama Was Born Female

Far-right conservatives and conspiracists have often claimed that Michelle Obama is a transgender woman, who was really born as a man. However, that’s simply not true, and they have had to resort to editing photos of her.

The truth is Michelle Obama was born as a girl, and even gave birth to two girls. Transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus.

Recommended : Do Photos Prove Michelle Obama Is Transgender?!

Fact #5 : Barack Obama Did Not Legalise Same-Sex Marriage

Even though both Barack and Michelle Obama have voiced their support for same-sex marriage, Barack Obama did not legalise same-sex marriage while he was President of the United States.

For one thing – the recognition of marriage was left to the states to decide prior to the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). By 2015, same-sex marriage was already permitted in 36 states in the United States, as well as the District of Columbia, and Guam.

But it was the US Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges that the fundamental right to marry is guaranteed to same-sex couples, requiring all states and territories in the United States of America to perform and recognise same-sex marriages.

In short – it was the US Supreme Court ruling in June 2015 that legalised same-sex marriage across the United States of America, not then-President Barack Obama.

Fact #6 : Michelle Obama Ruled Out Presidency Bid

Despite her popularity, Michelle Obama has consistently ruled out running for the US Presidency. In fact, on 5 March 2024, the former First Lady’s office told NBC News that she does not intend to run for President:

As former First Lady Michelle Obama has expressed several times over the years, she will not be running for president.

Mrs. Obama supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign.

Did WEF declare pedophilia as protected sexual orientation?!

Did the WEF declare pedophilia as a protected sexual orientation that deserves respect?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Declares Pedophilia Protected Sexual Orientation!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the WEF just declared that pedophilia is a protected sexual orientation that deserves respect!

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

WEF Declares Pedophilia ‘Sexual Orientation’ Must Be Added To LGBTQ+

Recommended : Is WEF Planning Cyber Attack To Disrupt 2024 Election?!

 

Truth : WEF Did Not Declare Pedophilia Protected Sexual Orientation!

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

Fact #1 : WEF Did Not Declare Pedophilia As Protected Sexual Orientation

Let me start by pointing out that the World Economic Forum (WEF) did not declare pedophilia as a protected sexual orientation.

If that actually happened, it would have been reported by the media worldwide, and criticised by people on social media. Yet, none of that occurred, because the WEF never made such a declaration.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its ridiculous claim.

Fact #2 : Canada Is Not Seeking To Protect Pedophilia

The People’s Voice article claims that anyone who insults a pedophile will face five years to life in prison. That’s not true.

While Canada is increasing the penalties for hate speech, it is not seeking to protect pedophilia as a protected sexual orientation.

Yet again, and unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its ridiculous claim.

Fact #3 : Canada Is Only Targeting Online Hate Speech

The Canadian government is proposing to target online hate by amending the Criminal Code, to define hatred as “the emotion that involves detestation or vilification” that is “stronger than disdain or dislike“.

In addition, it seeks to clarify that any statement that “discredits, humiliates, hurts or offends” would not be considered as promoting or inciting hatred.

In short – the proposed changes to the Canadian Criminal Code narrows the definition of hate speech, even while it increases the penalties.

Fact #4 : WEF Screenshot Is Fake

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

Hatred towards pedophiles is immoral and dangerous.

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

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

Yet again, and unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that such a post ever existed!

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

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

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

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

Alex Jones Agrees To Shut Down Infowars?!

Did Alex Jones just agree to shut down Infowars, and pay Sandy Hook families $1.5 billion in damages?!

 

How Alex Jones Came To Shut Down Infowars!

Alex Jones has finally seen the light! After praying at a church for the first time in his life on Easter Sunday,  the notorious far-right and alt-right conspiracy theorist decided to shut down Infowars for good! He also promised to pay the Sandy Hook families the $1.5 billion in damages he tried to avoid earlier.

Amazingly, his path to redemption started with his deep distrust of his wife, Erika Wulff. When she took their daughter to an Easter Sunday celebration, he suspected that she was really there to get a little sugar from the new pastor, who was quite the hunk!

So he sent one of his trusted Infowars employees to follow her car from a distance, and another to join the Easter Sunday celebration with his family. The two-pronged strategy appeared to hit pay dirt, when one of them spotted Erika and her daughter disappear into the sacristy while looking for Easter eggs.

On receiving the message, Alex Jones rushed over to the church with his Bushmaster XM15-E2S and Glock 20SF, and a trench coat to hide them in. But Easter Sunday traffic slowed him down, and by the time he arrived, the Easter egg hunt was over, and people were filing in for the second service.

He spotted his wife and daughter in the front, but kept his peace – he didn’t want to start his own Sandy Hook “action”, without first catching his wife “in flagrante delicto”. So he sat quietly at the back, and waited for the opportune moment.

The pastor came forth to start the service, and Alex Jones could not help admiring how he was incredibly attractive. So young and fit. He looks like he has a six pack, and quite a dong, Jones thought to himself, before realising awkwardly that he started to get an erection.

Pressing his legs together to stifle his growing tumescence, Jones could not help listening to the hot young pastor speak about the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and what it meant. It was the first time he had ever heard the whole story and its significance. He always thought Jesus was crucified because he was a Casanova who got caught with a Roman noble lady!

Recommended : Did Michelle Obama Rape Child When She Was A Man?!

At the end of the sermon, Alex Jones was hit by three epiphanies. First, he realised he could not stop thinking about the hot pastor and that he might actually be gay, or at least bisexual. Secondly, he realised it is possible for his own moral “rebirth” if he just confess to his sins and repent. Finally, he realised how close he came to easily killing strangers out of (misplaced?) jealousy using legally-purchased firearms.

He sat stunned and speechless for the first time in his life, as people filed out of church. That’s when his wife and daughter spotted him looking catatonic, but with tears streaming down his fat cheeks, and wearing a black trench coat. His two Infowars employees also noticed that he wasn’t quite himself, and came over.

When they realised he was “packing heat”, Erika ordered them to quickly carry him to his car before people were aware that he almost wanted to commit mass murder. Heck, he could still do it, if they didn’t hurry!

They didn’t have to worry, because Alex Jones was not able to do anything but sob like the insecure little boy he always was, but with his eyes finally opened by his three epiphanies. What an awkward scene it was as they struggled to help him to his car, with people staring and wondering why he was bawling like a baby.

 

Alex Jones Decides To Shut Down Infowars!

When he got home, he ran to his computer on which he wrote so many fake stories. He wrote confession after confession – to his readers, to his family, and to the many people he falsely wrote about, and asked for their forgiveness.

He also asked his estranged family for forgiveness, and admitted that he was lying when he said he forgot details about his children because he ate too much chili. He sure loves chili, but it never made him forget anything.

Recommended : Infowars Proven Wrong About Biden Face Mask Mandate!

Then he told his employees that he would be shutting down Infowars for good, and offered them all six-months severance if they agreed to never write or post fake news again.

Alex Jones also wrote to the families of mass murders that he accused of faking their deaths, and said that he would no longer stonewall their lawsuits, and will gladly pay them what they were asking for. He was a billionaire, and even after paying everyone, he would have plenty of money left.

He then pledged to donate the rest of his money to charities, and will dedicate the rest of his life to stop the proliferation of fake news and guns in the United States.

That was when Alex Jones woke up in cold sweat, with a sense of impending doom. He tried to reach out to his laptop, as he felt the ache in his chest grow and spread down his left arm. If he could just reach it…

Did WEF Order Cyber Attacks On US Water Supply?!

Did the WEF order devastating cyber attacks on US water supply?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Orders Cyber Attacks On US Water Supply!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the WEF ordered devastating cyber attacks on US water supply!

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

WEF Memo Orders Devastating Cyber Attacks on US Water Supply

Recommended : Is WEF Planning Cyber Attack To Disrupt 2024 Election?!

 

Truth : WEF Did Not Order Cyber Attacks On US Water Supply!

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

Fact #1 : No Evidence WEF Ordered Cyber Attacks On US Water Supply

Let me start by pointing out that there is no evidence the World Economic Forum (WEF) ordered any cyber attacks on US water supply.

The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency also never once suggested, never mind reported, that there was any cyberattack by the WEF.

But more importantly – why would the WEF bother with cyberattacks when it allegedly has control over world governments? It can simply order them to restrict water supply, as and when it wishes to. Why bother with cyber attacks???

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its ridiculous claim.

Fact #2 : WEF Video Is From 2022

Instead of providing any actual evidence, The People’s Voice article posted a link to its own video, which featured Professor Mariana Mazzucato, and claimed that the WEF ordered global water rationing to starve people into submission.

The video clip appears to be taken from the May 2022 WEF press conference on The New Economics of Water (link), and not 2023 as suggested by the article.

Needless to say, the actual video does not show Professor Mariana Mazzucato admit that a water crisis would help to starve people into submission, or that the elite was going to “experiment” on humanity.

Recommended : Did Insider Reveal WEF Global Famine False Flag Op?!

Fact #3 : CISA Warned Of Cyberattacks By Iran + China

On 18 March 2024, the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure and Security Agency (CISA) highlighted two recent and ongoing cyber attacks against critical infrastructure in the United States, including drinking water.

However, those cyber attacks were not conducted by the WEF, but rather, by threat actors affiliated or sponsored by Iran and China. From the full CISA letter to US governors (PDF):

Threat actors affiliated with the Iranian Government Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) have carried out malicious cyberattacks against United States critical infrastructure entities, including drinking water systems. In these attacks, IRGC-affiliated cyber actors targeted and disabled a common type of operational technology used at water facilities where the facility had neglected to change a default manufacturer password.

The People’s Republic of China (PRC) state-sponsored cyber group known as Volt Typhoon has compromised information technology of multiple critical infrastructure systems, including drinking water, in the United States and its territories. Volt Typhoon’s choice of targets and pattern of behavior are not consistent with traditional cyber espionage. Federal departments and agencies assess with high confidence that Volt Typhoon actors are pre-positioning themselves to disrupt critical infrastructure operations in the event of geopolitical tensions and/or military conflict.

To be clear – these cyberattacks on American water systems have nothing to do with the WEF.

Fact #4 : WEF Screenshot Is Fake

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

Water will soon become a privilege you must earn!

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

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

Did Joe Biden Ban Religious-Themed Easter Eggs?!

Did US President Joe Biden ban religious-themed Easter eggs, and Christian symbols at the White House Easter egg roll?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Joe Biden Banned Religious-Themed Easter Eggs!

Some people are claiming or suggesting that US President Joe Biden banned religious-themed Easter eggs, and Christian symbols at the White House Easter egg roll!

Kristi Noem : Biden and the Democrats decided Easter – the Holy Day of our Savior’s Resurrection – as transgender day of visibility. There is no length Biden and the Democrats won’t go to to mock your faith, and to thumb his nose at God.

Rep Andy Biggs : “Devout Catholic” Joe Biden banned religious symbols from the White House’s Easter egg art contest. He’s recognizing Easter as Trans Day of Visibility instead of one of the holiest days on the Christian calendar.

Recommended : Did Joe Biden Just Cancel Easter In The United States?!

 

Truth : Joe Biden Did Not Ban Religious-Themed Easter Eggs!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created or promoted by right-wing American and Christian conservatives, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Joe Biden Did Not Ban Religious-Themed Easter Eggs!

This is really silly, but let me just point out that US President Joe Biden did not ban religious-themed Easter eggs in the White House Easter Egg art contest, or at the White House Easter Egg Roll.

What these right-wing American and Christian conservatives are apparently so outraged about is a flyer (PDF) calling for children in National Guard families to submit artwork for Easter eggs. Selected designs would then be painted onto real hen eggs by talented egg artists and displayed at the White House.

The flyer called for children to draw a “snapshot of their life“, but asked that their artwork must not contain include “questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements“.

However, those submission guidelines have nothing to do with Joe Biden, Jill Biden, or the Biden Administration.

Fact #2 : Easter Egg Art Rules Set By American Egg Board

The eggs for the White House Easter Egg Roll event, as well as the Easter Egg art contest, are all sponsored by the American Egg Board. It is the American Egg Board that created those rules as the Sponsor.

It is clearly stated in the flyer that the Sponsor (American Egg Board) decides on the guidelines, and decides on the submissions.

[The] Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may remove any Submission and disqualify an entrant if it believes, in its sole discretion, that the entrant’s Submission fails to conform to the Guidelines and Restrictions.

In addition, the flyer also states that participants will grant the Sponsor (American Egg Board), the right to use their artwork, and collect their personal data. It also referred participants to the American Egg Board’s privacy policy.

In short, the White House Easter Egg art contest rules were issued by the American Egg Board, not Joe Biden, Jill Biden, or the Biden Administration.

Recommended : Are Soldiers Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure?!

Fact #3 : Those Rules Were Used For Last 45 Years!

What’s even more damning is the fact that the non-discrimination language used in the American Egg Board flyer has been used for the last 45 years, across many administrations both Republican and Democrat.

After many right-wing American and Christian conservatives vented their bile on social media, White House Deputy Assistant to President Joe Biden, Elizabeth Alexander, pointed out this hypocrisy:

Fyi on all the misleading swirl re White House and Easter: the American Egg Board flyer’s standard non-discrimination language requesting artwork has been used for the last 45 years, across all Dem & Republican Admins—for all WH Easter Egg Rolls —incl previous Administration’s.

If those right-wing American and Christian conservatives did not find them offensive the previous 44 years, So why the outrage this year???

Fact #4 : This Is Just Joe Biden Fake News

This is ultimately just another example of fake news created about Joe Biden, like these other examples:

Did Joe Biden Just Cancel Easter In The United States?!

Did US President Joe Biden just cancel Easter in the United States?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-03-31 : Added new claims and details
Originally posted @ 2024-03-30

 

Claim : Joe Biden Just Cancelled Easter In The United States!

Recommended : Is Prince Harry Involved In Diddy Sex Trafficking Lawsuit?!

 

Truth : Joe Biden Did Not Cancel Easter In The United States!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created or promoted by right-wing American and Christian conservatives, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Joe Biden Did Not Cancel Easter In The United States

This is silly, but let me just point out that US President Joe Biden did not cancel Easter in the United States.

In fact, President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden are hosting the 2024 White House Easter Egg Roll on Easter Monday, 1 April 2024 – a tradition that dates back to 1878.

The theme this year is “EGGucation” as announced by the White House on March 28, 2024:

Today, the White House announced the full program of activities for the 2024 White House Easter Egg Roll, a tradition dating back to 1878.  A teacher for more than 30 years, First Lady Jill Biden is continuing her theme of “EGGucation” for the event, transforming the South Lawn and Ellipse into a school community, full of fun educational activities for children of all ages to enjoy. 

In addition to the time-honored traditions of rolling and hunting eggs, this year’s White House Easter “EGGucation” Roll will also feature a School House Activity Area, Reading Nook, Field Trip to the Farm, Picture Day, a Physical “EGGucation” Zone, a Snack Time Tent and more. The South Façade of the White House will be adorned with balloons, marked with STEAM school subjects, a nod to Dr. Biden’s belief that with EGGucation, “all students can soar.”

Unsurprisingly, none of those making this ridiculous claim actually provided any evidence that the Biden Administration cancelled Easter in the United States.

Recommended : Are Soldiers Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure?!

Fact #2 : Joe Biden / Democrats Did Not Create Transgender Day!

Instead of providing evidence that Joe Biden actually cancelled Easter, these conspiracists share screenshots of Joe Biden’s 2024 Proclamation on Transgender Day of Visibility. #eyeroll

Joe Biden is the first American president to issue a formal proclamation. However, neither Joe Biden, nor the Democrats, created the Transgender Day of Visibility!

The International Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual event that occurs on every March 31, since it started in 2009. It was created by transgender activist Rachel Crandall of Michigan, not Joe Biden, or the Democratic Party.

Fact #3 : Easter Occurs On Different Day Every Year!

Unlike the Transgender Day of Visibility, Easter is not celebrated on a fixed date. Instead, Easter falls on a Sunday between 22 March and 25 April, after the astronomical full moon.

Only in 2024 does Easter coincide with Transgender Day of Visibility – on March 31, 2024. However, that does not mean Transgender Day of Visibility is cancelling out Easter.

These people do not appear to understand that two (or more) celebrations can occur on the same day. Either that, or they think you are really easy to fool…

Fact #4 : Joe Biden Issued Similar Proclamation In Past Years

I should also point out that President Biden first proclaimed March 31 as a Transgender Day of Visibility in 2021, and did so in 2022 and 2023 as well. He did not intentionally declare 31 March 2024 as the Transgender Day of Visibility to mock Christians.

This isn’t something new or exceptional for Joe Biden. He has issued a proclamation for every Transgender Day of Visibility every year of his presidency. If Easter did not get cancelled in 2021, 2022, and 2023, his 2024 proclamation certainly wouldn’t cancel Easter either!

Recommended : Was Kate Middleton murdered + replaced with body double?!

Fact #5 : Joe Biden Celebrated Easter In Previous Years

Finally, I should point out that Joe Biden is a devout Catholic, and has been celebrating Easter every year, so he would never mock Easter as many people are claiming.

We also know that both President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden hosted the White House Easter Egg Roll the past two years – in 2022, and 2023. They only skipped it in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If the Bidens have been celebrating Easter in the past, why would anyone falsely claim that they are cancelling Easter this year??? Isn’t lying a sin in Christianity???

Was Dali Unmanned When It Hit Francis Scott Key Bridge?!

Was the Dali unmanned when it hit the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Dali Was Unmanned When It Hit Francis Scott Key Bridge!

On 27 March 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) which claimed that the Dali was unmanned when it hit the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore!

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

White Hats Suggest Dali Unmanned at Time of Collision

Recommended : Baltimore Bridge Collapse Conspiracies Debunked!

 

Truth : Dali Was Manned When It Hit Francis Scott Key Bridge!

The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Dali Was Manned When It Hit Bridge

This is really silly, but it has to be said – the Mali was manned when it hit the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore.

In addition to its 22-man crew, there were also 2 local pilots onboard the Dali, who issued the Mayday call that likely saved many lives, minutes before it hit the bridge.

Not only did the crew of the Dali attempt to restart its engine (evidenced by the black smoke it produced), they also dropped its port anchor to try and shift its heading.

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

Fact #2 : One Sailor Left The Dali

Most of the crew onboard the Dali, as well as the two local pilots, are still onboard, as of 29 March 2024. One Dali crew member was injured in the collision, and had to be taken off the ship to receive stitches. So the claim that no crew was taken off the Dali is false.

The authorities do not plan to allow the crew members of the Dali to leave the ship. Unless there are safety concerns, the crew “will most likely disembark when the boat is moved or taken out of the water.

Recommended : Did Cyberattack Cause Dali To Hit Baltimore Bridge?!

Fact #3 : Other Ship Crews Remain Onboard

In addition to the Dali, there are seven other ships trapped in the harbour. Their crews are also remaining onboard, and will only be transported to land if they need medical attention.

All ship crews need shore passes from the US Customs and Border Protection to leave their ships, and come ashore in the United States. They cannot simply disembark as they wish.

There is also no reason for crews to disembark as these ships have enough provisions for weeks of travel. The Dali crew, for example, only requested for WiFi connectivity and new SIM cards, so they can communicate with their family back home.

Fact #4 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a fake news website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

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