Did the US Navy JAG just execute Oprah Winfrey?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : US Navy JAG Executes Oprah Winfrey

On 23 February 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that Oprah Winfrey was just sentenced to death, for being an accessory to mass murder in the Maui inferno!

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

Truth : US Navy JAG Did Not Execute Oprah Winfrey

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

Fact #1 : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested / Sentenced To Death

Let me just start by pointing out that Oprah Winfrey has not been executed, arrested, or sentenced to death, for being an accessory to mass murder in the Maui inferno, or any other reason.

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

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, not even celebrity blogs, have reported that Oprah Winfrey was in any legal trouble, never mind arrested, sentenced to death, and then executed by hanging!

We know this for sure because Oprah herself posted about her speaking with Tyler Perry on resilience and forgiveness in her latest “The Life You Want” class on 23 February 2024.

You may note that this occurred four days after the US Navy JAG (Judge Advocate General) supposedly executed Oprah Winfrey by hanging, on 19 February 2024.

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that the US Navy JAG executed Oprah Winfrey for being an accessory to mass murder in the 2023 Maui fire is absurd.

The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Oprah Winfrey. The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.

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

Fact #3 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

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

They can investigate crimes, defend or prosecute service members accused of those crimes. But JAG officers cannot actually arrest anyone. They certainly cannot act as judge, jury, and executioner!

Fact #4 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

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

That may be possible in a country like North Korea, but certainly not in the United States, where death row inmates wait an average of 178 months – about 15 years after their sentencing, before they are executed.

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

Fact #5 : US Military Has Not Executed Anyone Since 1961

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

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

Fact #6 : 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.

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

Truth : Trump Cannot Use Oprah’s Money To Pay $355 Million Fine!

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

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

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

We know this for sure because Oprah herself posted about her experience flying to NYC to take part in the photoshoot for the cover of the last issue of British Vogue, on 8 February 2024.

Could she have made it for the photoshoot, if she was supposedly arrested and jailed in Guantanamo Bay, before being courtmartialed, and sentenced to death???

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that the US Navy JAG convicted Oprah Winfrey for being an accessory to mass murder in the 2023 Maui fire, and sentenced her to death, is absurd.

The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Oprah Winfrey. The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.

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

Fact #3 : JAG Cannot Confiscate Civilian Property

The claim that JAG can confiscate Oprah Winfrey’s assets is also laughable. As the military justice branch of the American military, JAG cannot confiscate civilian property.

Even if somehow permitted to do so under the Justice Department’s asset forfeiture program (2023 guidelines), it would require the minimum oversight of:

  • the Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) or investigative agent in charge of the administrative
    forfeiture matter (and, if applicable, the AUSA in charge of the related criminal matter);
  • investigative agents; and
  • appropriate USMS representatives.

In short, even in the MAGA / QAnon fantasy world where Oprah Winfrey’s assets were somehow confiscated, it would be under the oversight of the US Justice Department.

Fact #4 : Seized Assets Cannot Be Given To Trump

Even in the MAGA / Canon fantasy world where Oprah Winfrey was somehow sentenced to death, and had her assets seized, there is no reason why those assets should ever be given to Donald Trump!

The seized assets would belong to the US government, and can be used as it sees fit. And there is simply no reason why it should divert some of those seized asset to a private citizen, even if he is called Donald J. Trump.

The truth is there is no way Oprah Winfrey’s money is ever going to be used to pay Donald Trump’s massive fine for fraudulently overvaluing his properties!

Fact #5 : Donald Trump’s Assets May Be Seized!

Ironically, Donald Trump may have his own assets seized to pay for the massive $355 million fine, with another $100 million in pre-judgement interest!

On 21 February 2024, New York Attorney General Letitia James said that she is prepared to seize assets from Donald Trump if he is unable to find the cash to cover his civil fraud fine.

We are prepared to make sure that the judgment is paid to New Yorkers, and yes, I look at 40 Wall Street each and every day.

Truth : JAG Did Not Hang WHO Assistant DG Ihekweazu!

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

Fact #1 : His Name Is Chikwe, Not Chickwe

The Real Raw News story wrongly identifies the WHO official in its story as Dr. Chickwe

If it cannot even get his name right…

Fact #2 : Promoting Vaccines Is Not A Crime

Real Raw News claimed that Dr. was hanged for apparently pushing vaccine mandates, and/or promoting COVID-19 vaccines. That’s just daft.

After all – neither promoting vaccine mandates, or COVID-19 vaccination, are crimes in the US military, or even in the United States.

Even if promoting vaccines and vaccine mandates are crimes in a hypothetical dystopian United States, they would not necessarily be capital crimes resulting in the death penalty.

Fact #3 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

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

Truth : JAG Did Not Execute Assistant Defense Secretary Tanya Skeen!

Fact #1 : Tanya Skeen Is No Longer Assistant Defense Secretary

Real Raw News claimed that the United States Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps arrested and then executed Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition Tanya M. Skeen.

That’s quite impossible since she left the US Department of Defense, and joined CACI International as its Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Development on 13 November 2023.

In this role, she will have a pivotal impact on the company’s growth by providing guidance and recommendations on investments to further advance CACI’s capabilities aimed at satisfying our customers’ future mission needs.

The Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition is Cara Abercrombie, who was nominated to the post on 20 April 2023.

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

Did US Military Hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel?!

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Everything that Real Raw News posts must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Moderna Is A Public-Listed Company

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #5 : Only Enemy Combatants Are Detained At Gitmo

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #7 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #9 : US Military Cannot Execute Anyone By Hanging

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

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

Did US Military Sentence Stephane Bancel To Death?!

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

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

 

Claim : US Military Sentenced Stephane Bancel To Death!

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

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

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

 

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

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

Everything that Real Raw News posts must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Moderna Is A Public-Listed Company

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #5 : Only Enemy Combatants Are Detained At Gitmo

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #7 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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