Was Oprah Just Exposed In Jeffrey Epstein Client List?!

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

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

 

Claim : Oprah Winfrey Just Exposed As Jeffrey Epstein Client!

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

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

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

Fact #1 : Jeffrey Epstein List Is All-Encompassing

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : Epstein Is Not Weinstein

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #4 : Oprah Was Only Mentioned Incidentally

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

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

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

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

Hi Jarred

Hopefully you have Virginia’ s book pitch by now.

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

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

Jeffrey Epstein List : Watch Out For Fake Lists!

The partial Jeffrey Epstein list has been revealed, but watch out for the fake lists going around!

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

Updated @ 2024-01-05 : Added details about the partial list that was just released.

Claim : The Jeffrey Epstein List Has Been Released!

People are sharing at least one video, and some photos, which purportedly shows the infamous Jeffrey Epstein list:

Truth : Jeffrey Epstein List Has Not Been Released!

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

Fact #1 : Official Jeffrey Epstein List Has Not Been Released

In December 2023, New York judge Loretta A. Preska ruled that there was no legal justification to continue concealing the names of more than 150 “John and Jane Does” mentioned in the records. It is from these documents that a “list” of more than 150 names are expected to be revealed – the so-called “Jeffrey Epstein list”.

Judge Preska ordered the names and documents to be unsealed after 1 January 2024, pending appeals. That does not mean that the names will be released immediately on 2 January 2024. It just means it can take place anytime in the coming days or weeks.

That’s because she gave people whose names would be unsealed until midnight on January 1, 2024, to file an objection or appeal. The release of this list of names could be delayed if anyone appeals.

On 20 December, the lawyer for Doe 107 filed a request for a 30-day extension (source), which was approved the next day (source). Doe 107 now has until 22 January 2024, to support her contention that unveiling her name would put her at risk of physical harm.

Hence, only a partial list was released on Wednesday, 3 January 2024. While more names is likely to be released in coming days, the full and final list will not be released so soon. In addition to Doe 107, Doe 110 also submitted an enquiry, which Judge Preska will need to rule on.

In other words – all those Jeffrey Epstein lists that have been circulating prior to 3 January 2024, are not the actual list that people have been eagerly anticipating. Even that list is partial.

Fact #2 : Real List Has Over 150 Names

I should point out that the official Jeffrey Epstein list, once released, is expected to consist of over 150 names.

It is currently unknown how many people are on the final list, as Judge Preska will keep some names sealed, including those belonging to child victims who have not spoken publicly.

The public interest does not outweigh the privacy interests of the alleged minor victim.

The fake lists that I’ve seen circulating on social media are short, listing far fewer than 50 names. That alone should tell you that they are not the real Jeffrey Epstein list, at least in reference to what Judge Preska ordered to be revealed.

Recommended : Why Jeffrey Epstein Name List Was Partially Released!

Fact #4 : Jeffrey Epstein List Is All-Encompassing

The term – Jeffrey Epstein list – carries the connotation that people on this list are somehow complicit in his crimes. That would be quite incorrect.

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Many Of The Names Are Already Known

The eventual release of the official Jeffrey Epstein list is unlikely to be a bombshell, as many of the names on the list are already publicly known. For example:

  • Bill Clinton
  • Bill Gates
  • Donald Trump
  • Prince Andrew
  • Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

As Judge Loretta Preska noted, many of those who are on the Epstein list had already been publicly identified by the media, or during Ghislaine Maxwell’s criminal trial.

Most of the fake lists circulating on social media are based on the names already publicly known, with some names “conveniently” left out. Donald Trump, for example, was left out of the viral video clip above.

Instead of forwarding or sharing those fake lists, why not wait for the real one?

Why Jeffrey Epstein Name List Was Partially Released!

Here is the partial Jeffrey Epstein name list that was just released. You will need to wait a while longer for the full list!

Updated @ 2024-01-04 : Updated with the partial release of the Epstein name list

Jeffrey Epstein Name List : What Is It?

On September 21, 2015, Virginia Giuffre filed a defamation lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell. This case (Giuffre v. Maxwell (1:15-cv-07433) was settled under seal in 2017, with Maxwell reportedly paying Giuffre “millions”.

In December 2023, New York judge Loretta A. Preska ruled that there was no longer any legal justification to continue concealing the names of the 187 “John and Jane Does” mentioned in the records.

It is currently unknown how many people are on the final list, as Judge Preska will keep some names sealed, including those belonging to child victims who have not spoken publicly. However, the final so-called “Jeffrey Epstein list” is expected to number more than 150 names.

Many people have eagerly searching for the Jeffrey Epstein name list, leading to a number of fake lists appearing on social media.

On Wednesday, 3 January 2023, a partial list of 90 names was released, but what you may not know is that this isn’t the full list, which has actually been delayed!

Why Jeffrey Epstein Name List Has Been Delayed!

It is common knowledge now that Judge Preska ordered the release of the unredacted names after 1 January 2024. What many people don’t seem to know is that the release of the full name list has actually been delayed.

Hence, when the name list of some 90 names was released on Wednesday, 3 January 2023, it was not the full list. Here is the current list of names released so far:

  1. Ghislaine Maxwell
  2. Virginia Lee Roberts Giuffre

  88. Bruce Willis
  89. Daniel Wilson
  90. Andrew Albert Christian Edwards, Duke of York

Four names mentioned in the newly released documents remained redacted, while many more names were not included in this release.

This is because Judge Preska ordered the names and documents to be unsealed after 1 January 2024, pending appeals. She gave people whose names would be unsealed until midnight on January 1, 2024, to file an objection or appeal.

Recommended : Epstein had painting of George Bush playing paper airplanes?!

On 20 December, the lawyer for Doe 107 filed a request for a 30-day extension (source), which was approved the next day (source). Doe 107 now has until 22 January 2024, to support her contention that unveiling her name would put her at risk of physical harm.

On the day the current list and documents were released, another person – Doe 110, submitted an enquiry which is currently being reviewed by the Court (source).

Dec 20, 2023 : NOTICE OF APPEARANCE by Richard Ware Levitt on behalf of John Doe 107..(Levitt, Richard) (Entered: 12/20/2023)

Dec 20, 2023 : LETTER addressed to Judge Loretta A. Preska from Richard Levitt dated 12/20/2023 re: Doe 107. Document filed by John Doe 107..(Levitt, Richard) (Entered: 12/20/2023)

Dec 21, 2023 : MEMO ENDORSEMENT: on re: 1317 Letter filed by John Doe 107. ENDORSEMENT: Doe 107’s request for a 30-day extension is approved. Doe 107 shall, by January 22, 2024, submit to the Court for in camera review an affidavit (1) supporting her assertion that she faces a risk of physical harm in her country of residence and (2) providing detail concerning the hate mail she has received. Doe 107’s counsel may also provide by this date any additional factual support for Doe 107’s contention that unsealing the relevant records would put her at risk ofphysical harm. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Loretta A. Preska on 12/21/2023) (ama) (Entered: 12/21/2023)

Jan 3, 2024 : ORDER: On December 18, 2023, the Court entered an order (dkt. no. 1315) summarizing its findings following a particularized review of the documents noted therein and immediately staying its order for fourteen days to allow any impacted Doe an opportu nity to appeal. The Court received inquiries from two Does seeking to remain under seal. The first of these two Does is Doe 107, whom the Court granted an extension of time until January 22, 2024, to submit support for her assertion that unsealing wo uld cause her physical harm. (See dkt. no. 1318.) The second inquiry was submitted by Doe 110 and is currently under review by the Court. With the exception of the documents relating to these Does, the parties have informed the Court that they will b egin filing the unsealed records outlined in this Court’s December 18 Order later today. The Court will render its determination on the documents relating to Does 107 and 110 in due course. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Loretta A. Preska on 1/03/2024) (ama)

Until Judge Preska rules on the Doe 107 and Doe 110 enquiries, the Jeffrey Epstein list of names will remain incomplete.

In addition, the current list of some 90 names isn’t complete either. The court documents list 184 “Does”, starting at J. Doe #3 through J. Doe #187.

Even though some names are repeated twice, and some are the names of minors who did not speak out publicly and will remain sealed, the final list of people associated (even tangentially) with the Jeffrey Epstein scandal is likely to number over 150.

Frankly, even the full and final Jeffrey Epstein list is unlikely to be a bombshell, as many of the names on the list are already publicly known, like:

  • Bill Clinton
  • Bill Gates
  • Donald Trump
  • Prince Andrew
  • Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

As Judge Loretta Preska noted, many of those who are on the Epstein list had already been publicly identified by the media, or during Ghislaine Maxwell’s criminal trial.

On top of that, many people whose names appear in these court documents are not being accused of any crimes. To be clear – this is not a Jeffrey Epstein “client list”!

Epstein had painting of George Bush playing paper airplanes?!

Did Jeffrey Epstein own a painting of George Bush Jr. playing with paper airplanes, in front of two collapsed Jenga towers?!

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

 

Claim : Epstein Had Painting Of George Bush Playing With Paper Airplanes!

People keep sharing a photo of a painting of George Bush playing with paper airplanes, in front of two collapsed Jenga towers; claiming that Jeffrey Epstein once owned it.

Dr David Cartland : Does anyone else think it’s weird that Epstein had a painting of George Bush playing with paper airplanes, sitting in front of two collapsed Jenga towers?

Recommended : Joe Biden Caught Receiving Laundered Chinese Money?!

 

Truth : Epstein Did Not Own Painting Of George Bush Playing With Paper Airplanes!

Let’s take a look at the viral painting, and find out why Jeffrey Epstein did not actually own it!

Fact #1 : That’s George Bush Jr.

Let me just start by pointing out that there are two US Presidents called George Bush, and the one in the viral painting is George Bush Jr. or George W. Bush.

Born George Walker Bush on July 6 , 1946, George W. Bush was the 43rd President of the United States. He was the president who initiated the war on terror after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

The other George Bush was his father – George H. W. Bush (George Herbert Walker Bush or George Bush Sr.), who was the 41st President of the United States, and died on 30 November 2018.

Fact #2 : George Bush Painting Is Real

Some have suggested that the viral painting of George Bush Jr. was not real, but generated using AI text-to-image generation.

However, the truth is – that is a real painting called “War Games” that was painted by Australian artist, Petrina Ryan-Kleid.

Fact #3 : George Bush Painting Was From 2012

Some people appear to suggest that this painting was possibly painted before the September 11 attacks in 2001. However, War Games was painted about 11 years after that September 11 attacks.

Petrina Ryan-Kleid painted War Games in 2012, as part of her Master’s thesis at the New York Academy of Art. She exhibited that painting at her degree show when she graduated with an MFA the same year from the New York Academy of Art.

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

Fact #4 : Epstein Bought A Different Painting

Petrina Ryan-Kleid painted two pictures for her Master’s thesis – the aforementioned War Games picture of President George Bush Jr. and a picture of President Bill Clinton, called Parsing Bill.

Unbeknownst to her, the New York Academy of Art sold Parsing Bill (not War Games) to Jeffrey Epstein the same year she graduated.

It was Parsing Bill that was seen in Jeffrey Epstein’s Upper East Side townhouse in Manhattan, New York City. Even Petrina Ryan-Kleid was surprised to learn that he bought her painting.

In 2012, as a grad student at the New York Academy of Art, I painted pictures of Presidents Clinton and Bush as part of my Master’s thesis.

When the school put on a fundraiser at the Tribeca Ball that year, they sold my painting to one of the attendees. I had no idea who the buyer was at the time.

As with most of my paintings, I had completely lost track of this piece when it was sold seven years ago. So it was a complete surprise to me to learn yesterday that it wound up in Epstein’s home.

To be clear – Jeffrey Epstein bought her painting of President Bill Clinton lounging on a chair in a blue dress and red hills, and pointing a finger.

He did not purchase the picture of President George Jr. playing with paper airplanes with two piles of Jenga blocks.

Recommended : Did Al Franken Get Jew Call Warning Of 9/11 Attacks?!

Fact #4 : Both Paintings Had No Nefarious Meaning

Some people appear to suggest that the War Games painting was implying that George Bush Jr. was the “real architect” behind the September 11 attacks, instead of Al Qaeda.

Others have suggested that the Parsing Bill painting was suggesting that Bill Clinton was a crossdresser, or Jeffrey Epstein had it painted to suggest he “had the dirt” on Clinton.

However, Petrina Ryan-Kleid stated in an August 2019 interview, that both paintings were about “how opposition parties caricature presidents“. She stated that “neither painting should be taken literally“.

Petrina Ryan-Kleid pointed out that at the time, she had just arrived in the United State from Australia, and was completely naive about politics. She still remained ambivalent about American politics.

I live a quiet life, and I really just had a naive, newly arrived foreigner’s idea for a thesis.

It was just a silly school artwork that was supposed to show, pictorially, the messages we are bombarded with in regards to these presidents.

Since I’m Australian, I wasn’t then, nor am I now, partisan about American politics. At the time, most of my ideas were fresh from the Daily Show or from Australian cable TV.

As the artist has clarified – both paintings have no nefarious, hidden meaning.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Bill Gates Facing Life Behind Bars on Child Rape Charges

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Bill Gates For Murder?!

Fact #3 : Melinda Gates Message Appears To Be Fake

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

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

It’s prison time Bill.

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

I have it all on tape.

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

I hope they throw away (the key?)

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

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

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

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is A Fake News Website

The People’s Voice is the new name / brand for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited 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 personally fact checked earlier:

Claim : Bill Gates Was Destroyed In ABC News Interview!

People are sharing a TikTok video with the title “Bill Gates caught in corner”, which shows Bill Gates getting destroyed in a recent ABC News interview.

ABC News : So Mr Gates, in your own words, what have you contributed to the world?

Bill Gates : Um I’m not sure if you’re aware, but I created the world’s most popular computer operating system.

Truth : Bill Gates Was NOT Destroyed In ABC News Interview!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to go viral on TikTok, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : ABC News Interviewed Bill Gates On Jan 31, 2023

First, let’s start by sharing some basic context on the ABC News interview with Bill Gates.

The interview was conducted by Australian Broadcasting Corporation journalist, Sarah Ferguson, on her current affairs show – 7.30, and released on Tuesday, 31 January 2023.

Fact #2 : ABC News Did Not Destroy Bill Gates In That Interview

Anyone who watches the actual ABC News interview of Bill Gates will be puzzled by the viral video and claim, because Sarah Ferguson never “destroyed” Bill Gates.

You can read all about her interview and even watch the video in an article written by Sarah Ferguson and her colleague Myles Wearring. In her interview, she only asked Bill Gates about:

  • COVID-19 conspiracy theories
  • Elon Musk buying Twitter
  • the rise of artificial intelligence
  • climate change and renewable energy
  • his association with Jeffrey Epstein
  • his philanthropy, and pledge to give away most of his wealth

Sarah Ferguson ended the interview by thanking Bill Gates, who only nods. He never quit the interview in frustration as shown in the viral video.

Fact #3 : Gates Foundation Called Viral Video Fake

The media department for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation labelled the viral video as fake:

We confirm that the audio in this altered video is fake.

Fact #4 : Viral Video Was Edited Using Artificial Intelligence

The viral video was created by a TikTok creator called bdti989, who posted it with the caption:

How dangerous AI can be 😱
#BillGates #billgates #microsoft #Microsoft #followformore #follow #msdos #uops #ups #ops #world #interview #interviews #artificialintelligence #ai

bdti989 also stated several times that he edited the ABC News interview using artificial intelligence. It is basically a deep fake video.

Yes, it’s AI generated!

Fact #5 : Fake Video Was Not Satire

While some people are trying to justify the creation and/or sharing the video as “satire”, that is not true. Even the content creator himself did not call it satire.

bdti989 does not appear to create satire. His account is full of typical edited news content pushing right wing conspiracies, not satire.

Most of his videos aren’t particularly popular, typically with less than 3,000 views. Only his AI-generated fake video of the ABC News interview of Bill Gates has gone viral, with over 1.4 million views.

It is likely he created it to test his ability to create fake videos using artificial intelligence. Hopefully, it does not inspire him to create more of such deep fake videos to increase the popularity of his TikTok channel.

Fact #6 : Bill Gates Was A Notable Programmer

Regardless of what we may think of Bill Gates as a businessman and/or person, he was well regarded as a programmer. Both Gates and Paul Allen developed Altair BASIC – a BASIC programming interpreter for the MITS Altair 8800 and S-100 computers.

Paul Allen would famously write a bootstrap program for it during a flight to demonstrate their Altair BASIC interpreter, but Bill Gates would famously win the bet on who could write the shortest possible bootstrap program.

Fact #6 : MS-DOS Was Not Created By Gary Kildall

Gary Kildall (wrongly named as Gary Kildahl in the fake video) was the creator of the CP/M operating system that was once considered by IBM for its first PC.

Bill Gates not only did not steal MS-DOS from Gary Kildall, it was Gates who suggested that IBM should purchase CP/M-86 from Kildall for its forthcoming PC.

However, Gary Kildall famously went flying on his private plane instead of meeting IBM representatives, and they failed to reach an agreement.

Fact #7 : MS-DOS Was Based On 86-DOS

MS-DOS (wrongly named as Emma’s DOS in the fake video) was based on 86-DOS from Seattle Computer Products.

After IBM and Digital Research failed to reach an agreement on CP/M-86, IBM lead negotiator Jack Sams asked Bill Gates to find a usable operating system for the IBM PC. Gates later proposed using 86-DOS.

Microsoft then purchased a non-exclusive licence for 86-DOS in December 1980 for US$25,000, and hired Tim Paterson to port it to the IBM PC, so it would work on the Intel 8086 processor. IBM would submit over 300 change requests before accepting the final port.

It was only in July 1981 – a month before IBM released the PC, that Microsoft purchased all rights to 86-DOS from Seattle Computer Products for US$50,000. Microsoft then licensed the modified 86-DOS to IBM, and it became PC DOS 1.0.

In short, MS-DOS (rebranded from PC DOS) was based on 86-DOS, which was a different operating system from CP/M invented by Gary Kildall.

Kildall would later persuade IBM to offer CP/M-86 with the PC. That would not be possible if Kildall really sold CP/M to Microsoft “for a couple of dollars” as the fake video alleges.

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Have Been Proven Safe + Effective

Anti-vaccination proponents are not interested in your health, which is why they keep lying about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

The truth is – COVID-19 vaccines were only approved AFTER they have undergone extensive safety and efficacy tests, involving tens of thousands of volunteers.

And even after receiving Emergency Use Authorisation and full FDA approval, they continue to be monitored for safety and efficacy.

The reason why doctors and health authorities STRONGLY advocate vaccination is because the vaccines have been PROVEN to protect the vast majority of people from getting COVID-19 in the first place.

And even if you do get infected after vaccination, the vaccine will protect you against hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

Did Ghislaine Maxwell Just Commit Suicide In Prison?!

Did socialite Ghislaine Maxwell just commit suicide in jail, a few hours after she was sentenced to 20 years in prison?!

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

 

Claim : Ghislaine Maxwell Just Committed Suicide In Prison!

Within hours of news breaking that Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking, Vancouver Times posted a story claiming that she just committed suicide!

Ghislaine Maxwell was found hanging in her cell hours after she was sentenced to 20 years in jail, according to sources at the detention center she was staying at. Similar to Jeffrey Epstein, the guards have stated that cameras were not working at her time of death.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the child raping socialite who once consorted with elite figures, was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison for helping the financier Jeffrey Epstein abuse and torture underage girls.

Activists are cheering on Maxwell’s death, stating that they are happy that Maxwell is no longer on this planet, but dismayed she didn’t spend more time in jail.

Her partner in crime, Jeffrey Epstein, killed himself in 2019 while awaiting trial. Epstein, along with Maxwell, sexually abused children hundreds of times over more than a decade, exploiting vulnerable girls as young as 14. Prosecutors said Maxwell gave him the help he needed to make it happen.

When Maxwell was found hanging in her cell, prison medics were unable to revive her. She was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead on arrival.

The mainstream media and big tech want to hide the truth. Beat them at their own game by sharing this article!

 

Truth : Ghislaine Maxwell Did Not Commit Suicide In Prison!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Vancouver Times to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Ghislaine Maxwell Did Not Commit Suicide

There is no evidence Ghislaine Maxwell committed suicide in prison.

For one thing – the US Bureau of Prisons would have to publicly announce her death, if not the circumstances of her death.

You may also note that no mainstream media, not even celebrity blogs, have reported on her death, never mind suicide by hanging.

It would have been worldwide news, and yet there has been zero coverage, because it never happened.

Fact #3 : Ghislaine Maxwell Was Not Suicidal

A psychologist evaluated Ghislaine Maxwell on Saturday morning, June 25, 2022, and determined that she is not suicidal.

The evaluation was ordered because her attorney claimed that she was unable to properly prepare for her sentencing.

Fact #4 : Ghislaine Maxwell Was On Suicide Watch

Ghislaine Maxwell was placed under suicide watch prior to her sentencing, even though she was deemed not to be suicidal.

She was removed from the general population at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center, together with her normal clothing; and given a “suicide smock” to wear in supervised solitary confinement.

Fact #5 : Her 20-Year Sentence Was Expected

Prosecutors have asked for Ghislaine Maxwell to receive between 30 and 55 years in jail, after her conviction last year, while the probation department recommended 20 years.

Judge Alison Nathan herself calculated that the sentencing guidelines called for about 15½ to 19½ years in prison.

Her final sentence of 20 years was in the ballpark of what was expected. Even though it was slightly higher than what the judge calculated, it is much lower than what the prosecution asked for.

So there is really no reason for her to commit suicide. It was not like the judge issued a harsher than expected jail sentence.

Fact #6 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on Ghislaine Maxwell’s suicide.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the US government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about her suicide.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media in the US refused to run the story, it would have been reported by the celebrity websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single celebrity blogger or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #6 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about Ghislaine Maxwell’s suicide.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Fact Check : Was Prince Andrew Just Arrested?!

Was Prince Andrew just arrested for human trafficking and child porn, amongst other crimes?!

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

 

Claim : Prince Andrew Was Just Arrested For Human Trafficking + Child Porn!

Vancouver Times just posted a story claiming that Prince Andrew was just arrested for numerous crimes, including human trafficking and child porn!

Prince Andrew has been arrested by police and charged for numerous crimes, including human trafficking and possession of child porn. He also faces similar charges in the United States, as was announced today. This comes after years of calls from critics to have Prince Andrew arrested for crimes he committed alongside Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein.

Prince Andrew has announced that he plans on co-operating. Experts have speculated that the prince may offer a list of Epstein’s clients in exchange for immunity. Prince Andrew more than likely knows more about the inner workings of the Epstein-Maxwell human trafficking ring, and has every reason to co-operate with authorities. According to sources, Prince Andrew will spend the rest of his life in prison if he’s convicted.

The mainstream media and big tech want to hide the truth. Beat them at their own game by sharing this article!

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Prince Andrew Was Seen Leaving Windsor

On the same day Jason Pires of Vancouver Times claimed that Prince Andrew was arrested for human trafficking and child porn, he was seen leaving his home on the Windsor estate in his Range Rover.

Fact #3 : No Criminal Case Against Prince Andrew

There is currently no criminal case against Prince Andrew, so there is no reason for the police to arrest him.

The case Virginia Giuffre v. Prince Andrew was a civil suit, and ultimately settled out of court on 15 February 2022.

Fact #4 : He Is Currently A Potential Witness In A Civil Lawsuit

He is currently embroiled in a civil lawsuit involving Jeffrey Epstein, albeit as a potential witness.

The accuser, Caroline Kaufman, claimed that the Duke of York was visiting Epstein’s house in New York on the night she was raped by Epstein.

He was never accused of human trafficking or possession of child porn. Vancouver Times created those false claims to go viral.

Fact #5 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

If Prince Andrew was really arrested for human trafficking and child porn, it would have been worldwide news.

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on Prince Andrew’s purported arrest for human trafficking and child porn.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the UK government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about such a momentous arrest.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been gleefully published by celebrity bloggers and websites.

Yet, not a single press / gonzo outlet published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #6 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about Prince Andrew’s (false) arrest.

They would all loved it if Prince Andrew was really arrested for ANY crime. The news would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

That is why the media have breathlessly reported on Prince Andrew’s legal predicaments for many years now.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.
