Is David DePape A Male Prostitute Paul Pelosi Hired?!

Did Paul Pelosi Hire David DePape As Prostitute?!

Was David DePape, who attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer, a male prostitute he hired the night before?!

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

Updated @ 2023-01-28 : Added the bodycam and CCTV surveillance videos on the night of the assault.

Claim : David DePape Was A Prostitute Paul Pelosi Hired!

The Santa Monica Observer went viral recently, after Elon Musk shared a story by its staff writer, Stan Greene, that claimed David DePape was actually a male prostitute that Paul Pelosi hired!

It’s a long, rambling article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

The Awful Truth: Paul Pelosi Was Drunk Again, And In a Dispute With a Male Prostitute Early Friday Morning.

As SF’s gay bars closed at 2 am, two gay men met in a bar and went home together. Happens every night in the City by the Bay. Except one of these two men, was married to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

 

Truth : David DePape Was NOT A Prostitute Paul Pelosi Hired!

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

Fact #1 : Santa Monica Observer Is Notorious For Fake News

Santa Monica Observer 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. Here’s a selection of fake claims they posted in the past:

  • Hillary Clinton died in 2016, and it was her body double who debated Donald Trump.
  • Trump appointed Kanye West to a high-level position in the Interior Department.
  • Bill Gates is responsible for the recent polio epidemic.

Fact #2 : David DePape Broke Into Paul Pelosi’s Home

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that David DePape was a male prostitute who stayed overnight at Paul Pelosi’s home, but had a quarrel that resulted in the assault.

It’s a silly claim, because DePape admitted to police, in a sworn affidavit to the US District Court of Northern California, that he broke into the house through a rear glass door at around 2 AM on October 28, 2022.

DEPAPE stated that he broke into the house through a glass door, which was a difficult task that required the use of a hammer. DEPAPE stated that Pelosi was in bed and appeared surprised by DEPAPE. DEPAPE told Pelosi to wake up.

Fact #3 : David DePape Brought The Hammer

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that Paul Pelosi owned the hammer that was used in the attack.

David DePape planned to take US Speaker Nancy Pelosi hostage, interrogate her, and possibly break her kneecaps. So he brought two hammers (one later found in his backpack), a roll of tape, white rope, one pair of rubber and cloth gloves, and a journal.

[L]aw enforcement searched DEPAPE’s backpack at the Pelosi residence, and they found, among other things, a roll of tape, white rope, one hammer, one pair of rubber and cloth gloves, and a journal.

Police would later find another two hammers, together with a sword, and another pair of rubber and cloth gloves at DePape’s own garage.

On January 28, 2023, CCTV surveillance video showed David DePape hitting the glass door at the back of the Pelosi house 16 times with a hammer, before smashing his way inside.

Fact #4 : Paul Pelosi Made The 9-1-1 Call

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that the police went to conduct a “wellness check” on Paul Pelosi after someone else called them.

The truth is – the San Francisco Dispatch received a 9-1-1 call from Paul Pelosi at 2:23 AM, after he managed to escape to the bathroom.

Pelosi told the dispatcher that there was a male whom he did not know in his home, and that the man who called himself David was going to wait for his wife – US Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

San Francisco Police Department officers responded to the Pelosi residence at 2:31 AM.

Fact #5 : Police Officers Did Not Break The Window / Door

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that the police broke a window or sliding glass door to gain entry into the Pelosi residence.

The truth is – when the police officers arrived, they knocked on the door, and Paul Pelosi ran to the door to open it. That was when Pelosi and DePape got into a tussle over the hammer.

When the door opened, the officers saw both Pelosi and DePape grappling over the hammer, with DePape holding Pelosi’s forearm with his other hand.

When the officers asked them both to drop the hammer, DePape pulled it out of Pelosi’s hand and hit him on the head, knocking him unconscious.

On January 28, 2023, the police released the bodycam video of the officers who responded. You can see that Paul Pelosi opened the front door (which is a wooden door) for them, before he was assaulted by DePape with a hammer.

Fact #6 : David DePape Is Not Gay, Nor A Prostitute

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that David DePape is a male prostitute. There is no evidence DePape is gay or a prostitute.

He is a hemp jewellery maker who once lived with a nudist activist, Oxane “Gypsy” Taub. She lived with him for many years, and was the mother of his children – two sons and a daughter.

DePape also had another child, with a different unnamed woman, according to his stepfather, Gene DePape.

Fact #7 : David DePape Espoused Right Wing Conspiracy Views

Santa Monica Observer and many US conservatives are trying to frame David DePape as a left wing Castro nudist liberal.

However, DePape’s blog and social media posts show that he is deep into right wing conspiracy theories like:

  • He posted that journalists who deny Donald Trump’s false claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election “should be dragged straight out into the street and shot”.
  • He posted and referenced QAnon – the baseless conspiracy theory espoused by Trump supporters, that the US is run by a deep state cabal of child sex traffickers, pedophiles and baby-eating cannibals.
  • He also claimed that Jews helped finance Hitler’s political rise in Germany.

He was also a Trump supporter, calling for the disgraced former president to run for office again, and make Tulsi Gabbard his Vice President running mate.

Fact #8 : Paul Pelosi Was Alone During His Drunk Driving Accident

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that there was a young man with Paul Pelosi when he hit a car while driving under the influence of alcohol.

The accident report showed that only the two drivers were involved in the accident. There were no passengers in both cars.

Memorial Reveals Bizarre Details On Diamond’s Death!

The memorial of Lynette ‘Diamond’ Hardaway’s death was truly memorable for the bizarre details and claims by her sister, Silk, and other MAGA celebrities!

 

Lynette ‘Diamond’ Hardaway’s Sudden Death : What Happened?

Lynette Hardaway, better known as Diamond of the political commentator duo, Diamond and Silk, died on January 9, 2023.

Her sister, Rochelle Richardson – better known as Silk, announced her death, while asking for donations:

The World just lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity! Please respect the privacy of Diamond’s family! Memorial Ceremony TBA. Contributions towards Preserving Diamond’s Legacy are only being accepted at the following link:

While Diamond dying from COVID-19 would seem like a fitting, if ironic, end for someone who pushed COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation, there is currently no actual evidence she died from COVID-19.

Yet, rumours continue to swirl around her sudden death, because her family still refuses to divulge Diamond’s cause of death.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

Memorial Reveals Bizarre Details On Diamond’s Sudden Death!

On Saturday, January 21, 2023, a three-hour memorial service was held for Lynette ‘Diamond’ Hardaway in North Carolina, with many MAGA and conservative celebrities attending.

Her memorial turned out to be truly memorable, with bizarre details and claims by her sister, Silk, and other MAGA celebrities! Here is a selection of those bizarre claims and quotes!

Silk Suggests Diamond Was Poisoned By Vaccinated People!

Rochelle ‘Silk’ Richardson alluded that her sister, Diamond, was poisoned by… vaccinated people!

Instead of asking if Americans are vaxxed or unvaxxed, the real question to ask is – are Americans being poisoned?

In the wild, when they want to depopulate and sterilize a large group of animals, they usually inject one animal, and that one animal infect the rest of the animals.

So technically and according to the science, it doesn’t matter if you’re vaxxed or not. As long as the gain-of-function allows one injected person to transfer and infect another person, and that person infects another person, eventually everyone will be affected one way or the other.

So, in case some of you have been hiding under a rock, or still stuck in the now, people are dropping dead around here, and nobody is talking about it! They are dropping dead suddenly and unexpectedly.

The catchphrase is SADS – Sudden Adult Death Syndrome. Many call it a conspiracy theory, I call it murder!

Read more : Did Diamond of Diamond and Silk Die Of COVID-19?!

What Silk has alluded to is what anti-vaccination activists are calling “vaccine shedding”. In reality – vaccine shedding only occurs with the attenuated vaccine technology, which is not used by any COVID-19 vaccines.

Instead, that is how COVID-19 spreads. One person gets infected, and he/she infects other people, who go on to infect more people. Unlike a real virus, vaccines cannot replicate and spread to other people.

If “vaccine shedding” with COVID-19 vaccines was possible, we wouldn’t need to organise mass vaccination campaigns globally. We would simply need to inject one person, as Silk suggested, and let it spread.

Incidentally, SADS (also known as Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome) has nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccines because it was was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

SADS is also an inherited problem with your heart’s electrical system, which produces an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Silk Tells Of Diamond’s Final Moments

Silk then revealed her sister’s final moments, although she notably did not reveal Diamond’s cause of death.

What Silk said confirmed what MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said earlier about Diamond’s sudden death – she was not sick, but suddenly collapsed before dying.

As soon as Diamond hung up the phone, she said to me, ‘I can’t breathe.’ It was sudden, out of nowhere, and no warning. I got her to the kitchen table, open up the back door, so she can get some air. And each breath was less, and less, and less, until her eyes became a stare.

My husband and I followed the 911 instructions …uh-uh-uh… from the lady. We laid her – she taught us to lay her flat. They said, do CPR, and it was one-two-three-four, one-two-three-four, one-two-three-four.

My husband and I alternated, and kept going and going and going until the emergency truck came, came into the yard and the EMS came into the house. They did everything they could.

But what I want to say to everybody is don’t you dare call me a conspiracy theorist, because I saw it happen. I saw how it happened. I was there when it happened, and it happened suddenly.

I want America to wake up and pay attention. Something ain’t right. It’s time to investigate what’s really going on here, and get some answers to why are people falling dead suddenly!

Silk does not mention the vaccine as causing her sister’s death. Neither did she confirm that Diamond was, or was not, vaccinated against COVID-19.

However, she alluded earlier that “COVID-19 vaccine shedding” might be causing unvaccinated people to die from vaccine SADS, which is a baseless and scientifically impossible claim.

Read more : Mike Lindell : Diamond Was Not Sick But Just Collapsed!

Silk Threatens To File Complaint With Police

Silk also threatened to file a complaint with the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office for how they handled her sister’s death.

To the Hoke County Sheriff’s department, you have a rotten apple in the bunch.

While the body is still warm on the kitchen floor, you don’t overstep the next of kin then try and barge into my home, that I pay the bills for, illegally, with no warrant, to retrieve my sister’s dead body.

You don’t push yourself onto someone and then say “Don’t touch me”. Just because you are dressed in blue doesn’t mean you get to abuse the power you think you have.

Trump Forgot Who Silk Was!

Bizarrely, when Donald Trump got up to speak about Diamond in her memorial, he claimed that he only just found out about her sister, Silk, despite meeting and speaking to both several times in the past!

I thought I knew them both. I didn’t. I knew Diamond, but I didn’t know Silk at all. I just learned about Silk. You’re fantastic.

That was really awkward as it came after Silk spoke about how she loves Trump and the great times they had together.

For all of the bizarre quotes from Lynette Diamond Hardaway’s memorial, we are no closer to knowing her cause of death.

Until Diamond’s family reveals her cause of death, people will continue to speculate. If they refuse to reveal her cause of death, it will only fuel speculation that they are trying to conceal an inconvenient truth.

It is ironic that they would be faced with this decision, since many anti-vaccination activists have long mocked families for not revealing how their vaccinated loved ones “really died”. Most recently, they harassed CTV News reporter Jessica Cobb for refusing to reveal her medical condition after she appeared to faint on air.

Was Joe Biden Caught Groping Girl On Viral Video?!

Was President Joe Biden caught groping a girl in a viral video clip?!

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

 

Claim : President Joe Biden Got Caught Groping A Girl On Video!

A short video clip of President Joe Biden has gone viral, with people claiming that he has finally been caught on camera molesting a young girl!

DeAnna Lorraine 🇺🇸 : This man just groped a woman on camera.

#StopTheWEFnow : Uncle Biden strikes again!!! 💥

This sex-crazed old man just can’t keep his hands off pretty girls.

When do people say enough is enough? When do the news networks stop protecting him and report this for what it is?

If Trump did that… #StopTheWEFnow

Moron, wet brains are screaming and kicking their feet about @Santos4Congress lying while running for political office but doing nothing about this bullshit.

WHAT IS THIS? It’s from a live broadcast – so not somehow deb-faked, or photoshopped images. Who is this (under-age) girl that Biden is touching her chest and kissing her????

 

Truth : President Joe Biden Was Not Groping The Girl!

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

Fact #1 : Video Was Taken On October 29, 2022

While many people appear to believe that this incident just happened, the video is almost three months old.

The video was recorded by the Associated Press on Saturday, October 29, 2022, during early voting for the 2022 US midterm elections at a polling center in Delaware.

Fact #2 : Joe Biden Was Placing A Sticker On His Granddaughter

The original video shows President Joe Biden and his 18 year-old granddaughter, Natalie Biden – Beau Biden’s daughter, who was voting for the first time.

After they both cast their votes, they received “I voted stickers”. After Natalie Biden placed hers on her grandfather’s jacket lapel, the President asked her, “Wait, wait, wait, wait, which side do you want on?”

Natalie Biden then indicated she wanted the sticker on the left side of her dress, and President Joe Biden placed it there before giving her a quick kiss on her cheek.

The original video shows President Joe Biden placing the sticker and giving Natalie a kiss in about 2-3 seconds.

Fact #3 : Joe Biden Kissed Natalie Biden On Her Cheek

While some people are claiming that Joe Biden kissed the girl on her lips, that’s not true.

For one thing, reporters mentioned back in October 2022 that President Biden kissed Natalie Biden on her cheek.

The president and Natalie Biden placed “I voted” stickers on one another after casting their votes and the elder Biden kissed his granddaughter on the cheek.

But even if you don’t believe them, take a CLOSER LOOK at the video clip. You can see Natalie Biden turn her head as President Biden leaned in to kiss her… on her left cheek.

Fact #4 : Video Was Edited

The viral photo was edited from a very short clip of the original video, to a much which shows President Joe Biden placing a sticker on his granddaughter’s dress, and giving her a quick kiss on her cheek

It appears to be edited with a segment that loops back and forth to make it look like Joe Biden was fondling the girl’s left breast.

If you look at the white bearded man in the background, you can see him move from left to right and back to the left again. In the original video, he only moves to the left once.

The viral video also used a short clip of the song Simon Says by Pharoahe Monch, which suggestively goes, “Girls, rub on your titties (yeahhhh). Fuck it I said, rub on your titties

Fact #5 : Video Was Apparently Created By Machiavelli Memez

If you look carefully, the video has the watermark of Machiavelli Memez, who posts right wing material on Twitter. The same watermark also adorned the fake photo of President Joe Biden molesting a little girl.

Believe it or not, President Joe Biden was falsely accused of molesting a little girl at a kindergarten just last month, based on a photo with a Machiavelli Memez watermark.

So watch out for any photos or videos with a Machiavelli Memez watermark.

Read more : Was President Joe Biden Caught Molesting A Little Girl?!

Ultimately – the viral video was edited to make it look like President Joe Biden was groping the girl’s left breast.

In reality – he only placed a sticker on his granddaughter’s dress, before giving her a quick peck on her cheek. His fingers were on the sticker the entire time, and did not linger for more than 2-3 seconds.

Did Diamond of Diamond and Silk die from COVID-19?!

Did Diamond of the conservative political duo, Diamond and Silk, die from COVID-19?!

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

Updated @ 2023-01-12 : Added more details about Diamond’s condition before she died.
Originally posted @ 2023-01-11

 

Claim : Diamond of Diamond and Silk Died From COVID-19!

Lynette Hardaway – better known as Diamond of the political commentator duo Diamond and Silk, died amidst rumours that she was battling COVID-19.

Because they also pushed anti-vaccination and COVID-19 misinformation, her death was chalked up to their refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Lynette Hardaway, aka ‘Diamond’ from the MAGA Trump supporting duo Diamond and Silk, died from contracting what she called ‘a hoax’ better known as COVID-19. The irony is palpable.

Diamond —of the right-wing, Trump- loving duo Diamond and Silk— has died. In late November, she was hospitalized due to COVID-19. The duo was fired by Fox News a couple years ago for spreading misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines. You cannot script this stuff.

Diamond died from Covid? Then Silk monetized it? This is MAGA Platinum level right here. Bravo 👏

No Evidence Yet Lynette Hardaway / Diamond Died From COVID-19

Lynette Hardaway, better known as Diamond of the political commentator duo, Diamond and Silk, died on January 9, 2023.

Her sister, Rochelle Richardson – better known as Silk, announced her death, while asking for donations:

The World just lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity! Please respect the privacy of Diamond’s family! Memorial Ceremony TBA. Contributions towards Preserving Diamond’s Legacy are only being accepted at the following link:

While Diamond dying from COVID-19 would seem like a fitting, if ironic, end for someone who pushed COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation, there is currently no actual evidence she died from COVID-19.

Most social media users based their opinions on a Blavity article, which has now been made private or deleted. And it was not even the actual source!

From the little I could get from the (now removed) Blavity article, I determined that their source was an article by Ny MaGee on Lee Bailey’s eurweb (Everything Urban + Radioscope) website, which said:

Lynette Hardaway, famously known as Diamond of Diamond and Silk, is reportedly battling COVID and was allegedly hospitalized amid the Thanksgiving holiday.

“Anyone who believes in the power of prayer please pray for Diamond,” Diamond’s sister Silk [Rochelle Richardson] wrote on her Twitter page on Saturday.

But that article did not offer any evidence for that claim, and even stated that “Silk didn’t share details about Diamond’s ailments“.

It instead referred to a Sandro Rose article as the source for the claim that “the internet star’s health worsened while recovering from COVID.

The Sandra Rose article originally claimed on November 17, 2022, that Diamond was reportedly hospitalised with COVID-19 after celebrating Thanksgiving with her family.

Diamond (left), of Internet stars Diamond and Silk, was reportedly hospitalized with Covid-19 after celebrating Thanksgiving with her family.

Diamond, real name Lynnette Hardaway, coughed throughout their Chit Chat Live video on Lindell TV, November 17.

She didn’t disclose Diamond’s ailment. But sources say Diamond’s condition worsened while recovering from COVID.

However, Sandra Rose removed the claim that Diamond was hospitalised for COVID-19 on 1 December 2022, but maintained she coughed throughout the Chit Chat Live video on November 17, 2022. She also removed the part about her condition worsening.

Rochelle Richardson, aka Silk of Diamond & Silk (right), took to Twitter.com to ask for prayers for her ailing sister Lynette Hardaway, aka Diamond (left).

Diamond coughed throughout their Chit Chat Live video on Lindell TV, November 17 (Watch video below). She didn’t disclose Diamond’s ailment in her tweet.

In summary – the trail for Diamond’s death by COVID-19 claim ends with now-amended Sandra Rose article. It only gained credibility as more websites quoted or used the Sandra Rose claim, but as you can see – it was never based on actual evidence.

 

Silk + Mike Lindell Denies Diamond Died From COVID-19…

On January 11, Silk spoke out against the claims that her sister, Diamond, died from COVID-19.

I will NOT allow you or any other MOFO the opportunity to disparage, slander & lie on my sister & I.

Where’s your proof that my sister was ever hospitalized due to Covid and that we were fired from Fox?

Investigate Before You Celebrate! You have until 12 noon today to retract.

However, she noticeably did not explicitly deny that her sister died from COVID-19. She only asked for proof that her sister was ever hospitalised due to COVID-19.

Hypothetically, Diamond could have been hospitalised for some other ailment, but contracted COVID-19 at the hospital and died from its complications. Or she may have died at home from COVID-19 complications.

Mike Lindell – the CEO of MyPillow and a friend of the sisters – stated that “Diamond was not sick before she died“, but “just collapsed” suddenly “out of the blue“.

It’s very tragic because it’s one of the saddest thing. To have something happen like that just out of the blue — I can’t say enough words. It’s tragic.

Mike Lindell : Diamond Was Not Sick But Just Collapsed!

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell just stated that Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway was not sick, but just collapsed suddenly before dying!

 

Claim : Diamond Got Sick + Died From COVID-19!

Lynette Hardaway – better known as Diamond of the political commentator duo Diamond and Silk, died amidst rumours that she was battling COVID-19.

Because they also pushed anti-vaccination and COVID-19 misinformation, her death was chalked up to their refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Mike Lindell : Diamond Was Not Sick But Just Collapsed!

Lynette Hardaway, better known as Diamond of the political commentator duo, Diamond and Silk, died on January 9, 2023.

Her sister, Rochelle Richardson – better known as Silk, announced her death, while asking for donations:

The World just lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity! Please respect the privacy of Diamond’s family! Memorial Ceremony TBA. Contributions towards Preserving Diamond’s Legacy are only being accepted at the following link:

On Wednesday, January 11, 2023, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell spoke up about her sudden death, stating that Diamond was not sick before she died, but “just collapsed” suddenly “out of the blue“.

It’s very tragic because it’s one of the saddest thing. To have something happen like that just out of the blue — I can’t say enough words. It’s tragic.

Lindell also said that her sister, Rochelle “Silk” Richardson, called him shortly after Diamond died on Monday night, to let him know about her passing.

She was crying. It was very said. We prayed, and I prayed for her, and we prayed, and we were on the phone for quite a while.

Mike Lindell said that he didn’t know how Diamond suddenly died, and pointed out that it could be any number of causes.

I don’t think anyone does. She wasn’t sick.

I would assume when you [completely] collapse, it could be anything, an aneurysm, who knows?

I don’t know why people are saying stuff online.

It is ironic he should say that since anti-vaccination activists are often quick to blame the vaccine for such sudden or unexpected deaths.

In Diamond’s case, dying from the COVID-19 vaccine would be out of the question, since she was adamantly anti-vaccine like Kirstie Alley and Aaron Carter.

Silk also spoke out against the claims that her sister, Diamond, died from COVID-19.

Is This President Macron Dancing With His Wife 30 Years Ago?!

Take a look at the viral video of President Macron with his dancing teacher who became his wife, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : This Was President Macron With His Dancing Teacher / Wife 30 Years Ago!

People are sharing this video which claims to show a young Emmanuel Macron dancing with his teacher, who would end up becoming his current wife, Brigette Macron.

This is a 30 year old Television clip. This video is interesting not only because of the dance sequence, but because, this young boy is the current president of France, & the Lady dancer, his teacher …. is his current wife …Interesting!!! Isn’t it? 🤷‍🤷‍♀ 🤷‍🤷‍♀ 🤔🤔🤔🤔

 

Truth : That Was Not President Macron With His Dancing Teacher / Wife!

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

Fact #1 : Brigitte Did Not Teach Macron Dancing

Brigitte Auzière (born Brigitte Marie-Claude Trogneux on 13 April 1953) first met Emmanuel Macron at the La Providence High School in 1998, when she was a 40 year-old teacher, and he was a 15 year-old student and a classmate of her daughter, Laurence.

She was not his dancing teacher, but taught him literature and was in charge of the theatre class that he attended. Brigitte divorced her husband, André-Louis Auzière, in January 2006 and married Macron in October 2007.

Fact #2 : Brigitte + Emmanuel Macron Never Participated In Dance Contests

As far as I can tell – Brigitte and Emmanuel Macron never participated in any dancing contest.

So it would be quite impossible for them to appear in a dance competition 30 years ago.

Fact #3 : Viral Video Was Recorded In 2016

The viral video, which people claimed was Emmanuel Macron dancing with his teacher Brigitte, was not recorded 30 years ago.

It was posted on the SYTYCD (So You Think You Can Dance) YouTube channel on 6 September 2017, but featured on another YouTube channel on 13 July 2016.

Fact #4 : Music Was From 2014

You can also date the video using the music. It was certainly not 30 years old, but a much more recent – Toca Toca (Radio Edit) by Fly Project was published on YouTube on 14 May 2014.

Fact #5 : Viral Video Is Of Jenna Johnson + Jake Monreal

The viral video does not show Brigitte and Emmanuel Macron dancing in a competition.

The two dancers are Jenna Johnson and Jake Monreal, who were competing in “So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation” on July 11, 2016.

The YouTube video had the title “So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation – Jenna and Jake’s Ballroom Performance“.

In that video, Jenna and Jake performed a Cha Cha routine which was choreographed by Jean Marc Genereux, to “Toca Toca (Radio Edit)“.

Fact #6 : Jenna Johnson Is A Professional Dancer

Jenna Johnson (born April 12, 1994) is an American professional dance and choreographer, who was one of the mentors in that dance competition.

She competed with Jake Monreal in 2016, and made it to the Top 8 before elimination on August 1, 2016. She returned to the show in Season 14 to mentor Kiki Nyemchek, and made it to Top 4.

Fact #7 : Jake Monreal Is A Professional Dancer

Jake Monreal (born September 24, 2003) is now a 19 year-old professional dancer, who began dancing at the age of 10. At that time the video was recorded, he was just 12 years old.

Jake would become a professional dancer for Dancing with the Stars Junior in 2018.

Fact #8 : Just Another Example Of Fake News About Politicians

This is just another example of fake news created about politicians, and shared on WhatsApp and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Here are some other examples I fact checked:

Did Joe Biden Go On Vacation During Bomb Cyclone?!

Did President Joe Biden go on a tropical vacation in the Caribbean while the US was being pummelled by a polar vortex bomb cyclone?!

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

 

Claim : President Joe Biden Went On Vacation During Bomb Cyclone!

Donald Trump Jr. has gone viral with his claim that President Joe Biden went on a tropical vacation while the United States was being pummelled by a polar vortex bomb cyclone.

Where is the outrage about Joe Biden going on a nice tropical vacation while the country suffers through a “polar vortex bomb cyclone?” Remember what they did to Ted Cruz? A president can actually do something about this stuff that a senator can’t and yet total silence? WTF?

Republican Representative Ronny Jackson of Texas also tweeted his criticism of President Biden’s vacation during the winter storm.

MASSIVE winter storms paralyzed the country and Biden was taking a beach vacation in the Caribbean. Where was the media to demand he return to the White House to work? Did anyone even notice he was gone?

Conservative author, Nick Adams, also criticised President Biden for “abandoning his country during a historic blizzard”.

Where is the media outrage over Joe Biden abandoning his country during a historic blizzard to vacation on a beach in St. Croix?

Recommended : Was President Joe Biden Caught Molesting A Little Girl?!

 

Truth : President Joe Biden Went On Vacation After Bomb Cyclone!

Here are the reasons why they are all wrong to claim that President Joe Biden went on vacation during the 2022 bomb cyclone.

Fact #1 : Ted Cruz Went To Cancun During A Deadly Winter Storm

First, let us establish some context for Donald Trump Jr’s claim regarding Republican Senator Ted Cruz.

In February 2021, Ted Cruz faced tremendous outrage after photos showed the Republican Senator fleeing Texas during a deadly winter storm that left millions without power or heat, and over 200 people dead.

After social media exploded over those photos, Senator Cruz admitted that he and his family left Texas to fly to Cancun “at the request of his daughters”.

(Finally) realising how bad it looked, the good Senator flew back to Texas the next day, to “go home and keep working to get the grid reopened, to get power restored, to get the water back on.

I didn’t want all the screaming and yelling about this trip to distract even one moment from the real issues that I think Texans care about, which is keeping all of our families safe. It was obviously a mistake, and in hindsight, I wouldn’t have done it.

Fact #2 : Bomb Cyclone Ended On December 26, 2022

The December 2022 North American winter storm – started on Tuesday, December 21 and ended five day later on Sunday, December 26.

The winter storm became to form on December 21, and strengthened the next day before becoming a bomb cyclone on December 23 and 24.

A day before it became a bomb cyclone, President Joe Biden asked Americans to “please take this storm extremely seriously”.

The polar vortex bomb cyclone dissipated by Sunday, December 26, after causing transportation disruption, power outages and almost 90 deaths across the United States.

Fact #3 : President Biden Went On Vacation After Bomb Cyclone

It was two days after the bomb cyclone dissipated when President Joe Biden and his family flew to the US Virgin Islands for a vacation, and to ring in a new year.

The President and First Lady Jill Biden flew from Washington D.C. to St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands on Tuesday, December 28, 2022. There, they were joined by their daughter Ashley and her husband, Howard Krein, as well as their grandchildren Natalie and Hunter.

While Senator Ted Cruz left Texas during a severe winter storm, President Biden only left for his vacation after the winter storm had dissipated.

Recommended : Did Joe Biden Block Vietnam Evacuation + Refugees?!

Fact #4 : President Biden Continued To Work In St. Croix

The White House disputed Donald Trump Jr’s claim that President Biden was refusing to “do something about this stuff”.

Not only had the bomb cyclone ended two days prior, the White House pointed out that the president continued to work and monitor the situation, even while he is in St. Croix.

No matter where the President is, he is working. The President will continue to closely monitor updates and will remain in close touch with staff over the New Year.

Fact #5 : President Trump Took Far More Vacation Days

It should be pointed out that Donald Trump Jr’s father – the former President Donald Trump, once said that “I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off”.

Yet, his father – the former President Donald Trump, ended up taking 381 days of vacation time, most of which were spent at his own properties, directly / indirectly enriching himself during his vacation.

Was President Joe Biden Caught Molesting A Little Girl?!

Was President Joe Biden caught on camera molesting a little girl in a viral photo?!

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

 

Claim : President Joe Biden Got Caught Molesting A Little Girl!

A photo of President Joe Biden has gone viral, with people claiming that he has finally been caught on camera molesting a little girl!

The viral photo shows President Biden apparently fondling a little girl’s crotch.

Stew Peters : What the EFF am I looking at here? Is this a photo of Biden fondling a small child’s genitalia?

Adults need to keep their hands off kids @potus

Moron, wet brains are screaming and kicking their feet about @Santos4Congress lying while running for political office but doing nothing about this bullshit.

What is @JoeBiden @POTUS doing? This is definitely not a good look and rather scary looking. #PedoPeter?

 

Truth : President Joe Biden Was Not Caught Molesting A Little Girl!

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

Fact #1 : Photo Was Taken On October 15, 2021

While people are sharing this photo as something that was just taken in December 2022, this is over a year old.

This photo was actually taken by Evan Bucci, a photographer working for The Associated Press, on Friday, October 15, 2021.

Fact #2 : Photo Was Taken At A Connecticut Daycare Centre

The photo was taken when President Joe Biden travelled to a daycare centre in Hartford, Connecticut, to promote childcare plans that are part of his “Build Back Better” plan.

He was greeting children at a playground, when he was interrupted by Trump supporters yelling “traitor” and “f*ck Joe Biden” from across the street.

Needless to say – it would be incredibly stupid of President Joe Biden to even try to molest children in public, with Trump supporters watching his every move, and press photographers capturing the moment.

Fact #3 : Photo Was Edited

The viral photo was edited from the original photo, which shows President Joe Biden pointing to an American flag on the girl’s shirt. That was why she stretched her shirt with her own hands.

If you look closely, the girl appears to be “floating” above the ground because she was cropped out and moved upwards so that her shirt would cover Biden’s hand.

The person who edited the photo also removed the boy in the light blue shirt behind, and used a clone stamp tool to make the fence look seamless (removing a metal pole in the process).

Ultimately – this photo was edited to make it look like President Joe Biden had his hand on the girl’s crotch, when in reality – he was just pointing at the American flag on her shirt.

Claim : Health Canada’s Adam Exton Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Adam Exton died suddenly while swimming, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the Health Canada Director of Parliamentary Affairs was a victim of COVID-19 vaccine SADS!

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

Fact #1 : Adam Exton Died On December 9, 2022

First, let’s establish some basic facts about Adam Exton.

Adam Exton (born Adam William Exton on July 28, 1987) passed away on December 9, 2022, at the age of 35. He left behind his girlfriend, Reesha, father Allan Exton, mother Wendy Exton, and brother Bradley Exton.

He was a political staffer who became the Director of Parliamentary Affairs at Health Canada, and was part of the leadership team that led Canada’s health response to COVID-19.

Fact #2 : Adam Exton’s Cousin Confirms He Did Not Die From COVID-19 / Vaccine

On 23 December 2022, Eileen Marie posted a TikTok video, refuting conspiracy theories about her cousin’s death, saying that it had nothing to do with either COVID-19 or the COVID-19 vaccines.

I am Adam Exton’s cousin. Originally, I was gonna make a video about how devastated I was that my cousin died.

But when I googled his name to get photos for the video, I saw that there were people making conspiracy theories about his death. So I am here to set the record straight and clear up this bullshit.

Adam did not die from anything related to COVID-19. He did not die from the vaccine. It had absolutely nothing to do with that. We chose to keep his cause of death private out of respect to Adam and that’s it.

The fact that you are using my cousin’s death to justify your stupid conspiracy theories is beyond disgusting. Our family is devastated. We’re hurt. We’re upset that he’s gone. This is the last thing we need.

Adam Exton did not die from anything even remotely related to COVID or the vaccine. So lay off. Just stop.

Fact #3 : Adam Exton Likely Committed Suicide

Adam Exton’s family did not reveal his cause of death, but they asked that donations be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), and said that the organisation was very important to him.

That is as clear a hint as anything that Adam Exton had mental health issues, and likely committed suicide.

In memory of Adam, donations can be made to the CMHA , an organization that was very important to him.

Quito Maggi – the President and CEO of Mainstreet Public Research, tweeted about Adam Exton’s passing, and hinted that Adam Exton took his own life.

Ottawa is a tough place for staffers, I know. It’s a fun life but it also full of pressures and demands.

For young people like Adam, the pressure to succeed, to get ahead, move up, is tremendous. It takes a toll, I know.

So please, take a moment today to remember Adam and his service to his community, to his country and to his party. Rest in peace

When three antivaxxers claimed that Adam Exton died from the COVID-19 vaccine, he refuted their claims.

The young man did not die due to vaccination, if you can’t tell from the context of my tweets or his obituary his cause of death then you are an insensitive asshole

Dakota Burgin – the Senior Communications Advisor at the Office of the Canadian Minister of Labour, also suggested that Adam Exton had mental health issues and died from suicide.

My friend Adam passed away late last week. He gave his adult life to this community.

He fought personal battles at the same time as national ones.

Canadian Member of Parliament Patty Hajdu also suggested that Adam Exton was struggling and potentially had “problematic substance use”.

Despite the ways Adam contributed, he struggled too, like many others may be right now. The pandemic was traumatizing for so many. So many things need to change so that people who are living with poor mental health or problematic substance use can get effective care.

Lastly, his friend and former colleague, Elyse Banham posted that she regretted not connecting with him when he tried to reach out to her a month ago.

Adam Exton was a friend and former colleague. In recent years, we had not been as close and when he reached out about a month ago, I regret not reading the signs more clearly. Im grieving this loss and encouraging everyone to check in on their loved ones and friends.

Did Netanyahu Deny Anwar Ibrahim Is Israeli Agent?!

Did Benjamin Netanyahu defend Anwar Ibrahim against accusations that he is an Israeli agent?!

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

 

Claim : Benjamin Netanyahu Denies Anwar Ibrahim Is Israeli Agent!

After Anwar Ibrahim became the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia, an audio message went viral, claiming that he is an Israeli agent.

Days later, a screenshot went viral, purporting to show Benjamin Netanyahu defending Anwar Ibrahim, and denying that he is an Israeli agent.

Hadi Awang! Israel has absolutely no relationship with any political leader from Malaysia.

You should not try to convict Israel in Malaysian politics. Strict action and punishment will be taken if you still call Anwar an Israel agent.

You should blame yourself all this time. PAS itself failed to practice the true way of Islam, you are just rhetoric or a religious rider.

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

 

Claim : Netanyahu Did Not Comment On Anwar Ibrahim As Israeli Agent!

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

Fact #1 : Audio Message Was Not By Hadi Awang

First, there appears to be some confusion over who said that Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim is an Israeli agent.

The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) opened up an investigation into claims that the audio recording was by Hadi Awang, the President of the Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS).

However, it was later clarified that the audio recording was of the Baling Member of Parliament Hassan Saad, also of the PAS party.

Hadi Awang had nothing to do with the audio recording, so there is no reason for Benjamin Netanyahu to call him out for that Israel agent allegation against Anwar Ibrahim.

Fact #2 : LOD + Police Report Made Against Hasan Saad

In fact, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim filed a letter of demand against Hassan Saad on November 30, 2022, seeking an unconditional apology over the viral audio recording alleging that he is an Israeli agent.

The PDRM also initiated investigations against Hassan Saad over the viral audio message, under Section 504 and Section 500 of the Penal Code for intentionally insulting the intent to defame a person, as well as Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Therefore, there is simply no reason for Benjamin Netanyahu or any other persons to criticise Hadi Awang for calling Anwar Ibrahim an Israel agent.

Recommended : Fact Check : Parting Words of Judge Augustine Paul?

Fact #3 : Benjamin Netanyahu Does Not Post In English

Anyone who bothers to check Benjamin Netanyahu’s official Twitter account (@netanyahu) would immediately realise that the viral screenshot was faked.

The first thing you will realise is that Benjamin Netanyahu does not post in English. He only posts in Hebrew – the official language of the State of Israel.

The viral screenshot cannot be of an English translation either, because it would have shown the original Hebrew words, with a disclaimer before the English translation – Translated from Hebrew by Google.

Fact #3 : Benjamin Netanyahu Did Not Comment On Anwar Ibrahim

The second thing you would realise if you look at Benjamin Netanyahu’s official Twitter account is that he did not post any tweet that mentions Malaysia, Hadi Awang, or Anwar Ibrahim.

Going back until November 19, 2022 – the date of the 15th Malaysia General Election, Benjamin Netanyahu has only commented on Israeli issues and politics.

Fact #4 : Benjamin Netanyahu Is No Longer Prime Minister of Israel

Benjamin Netanyahu was ousted as Prime Minister of Israel on June 13, 2021, replaced by Naftali Bennett, and then Yair Lapid on July 1, 2022.

Netanyahu has not been the Prime Minister of Israel for over 18 months now, and would not have any standing to comment or act on behalf of the State of Israel.

Fact #5 : Fake Message Likely Written By Malaysian

The viral English message that was allegedly written by Benjamin Netanyahu has a curious term – religious rider.

That is a direct English translation of a very unique Malaysian slang term – penuggang agama, which refers to a hypocrite who uses religion for personal / political / financial gain.

There is no English or Hebrew equivalent for penunggang agama that I know of, which leads me to believe that this fake message was written by a Malaysian.

Did Ismail Sabri Order Maybach Pullman S 650 Limo?!

Did former Prime Minister Ismail Sabri order a Mercedes-Benz S 650 Maybach Pullman limousine that costs RM3.8 million?!

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

 

Claim : Ismail Sabri Ordered Maybach Pullman S 650 Limo!

At the end of November 2022, this message (together with a link and a screenshot) went viral on WhatsApp and social media, claiming to be evidence that former Prime Minister Ismail Sabri ordered a Mercedes-Benz S 650 Maybach Pullman limousine that costs RM3.8 million!

It also alleged that new Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim is expected to auction off the Maybach Pullman S 650 limousine, instead of using it.

Previous PM, Ismail Sabri order a MAYBACH Pullman Benz S650, RM3,800,000 without any Tax!!

Anwar refused to use it, but soon expected for Auction it!

Note : I placed a FALSE overlay to prevent the viral message from being further abused.

 

Claim : Ismail Sabri Ordered Maybach Pullman S 650 Limo!

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

Fact #1 : A Mercedes-Benz S600 Was Ordered, Not S 650 Maybach Pullman

On 28 November 2022, the new Prime Minister of Malaysia, Anwar Ibrahim spoke out about this claim.

He confirmed that a vehicle was ordered by a previous Prime Minister, but did not specific who it was.

He also confirmed that the model was a Mercedes-Benz S600 limousine, not the Maybach Pullman S 650.

Fact #2 : Mercedes-Benz S600 Is Different From S 650 Maybach Pullman

Both the S600 and the S 650 Maybach Pullman limousines are from the same company – Mercedes-Benz. However, they are completely different vehicles.

The S600 is an S-class sedan which seats four people. It has been discontinued, but was priced at over RM1.7 million when it was launched in Malaysia.

Meanwhile, the S 650 Maybach Pullman is an ultra-premium stretch limousine that is much longer than the Mercedes-Benz S600, seating six people.

It is also significantly more expensive, with a base price of around half a million euros or about RM2.3 million.

Fact #3 : Mercedes-Benz S600 Order Was Cancelled

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim also said that he cancelled the order for the Mercedes-Benz S600 limousine, so there was no need to auction it off, as the viral message claimed.

The Mercedes has not arrived yet, so I’m using this (Toyota Camry), okay? (I’ll just use) any car that’s available.

Actually, this (the S-class Mercedes) was ordered by a previous prime minister, but I checked to see whether we could cancel. (Thankfully) we could.

Anwar Ibrahim also said that no new official car will be purchased for his use, and no renovations would be carried out at his office, as part of a new culture against public funds wastage.

Fact #4 : Mercedes-Benz S600 Purchased Over Two Administrations

Interestingly, Berita Harian said that the purchase of the Mercedes-Benz S600 was first mooted during the Muhyiddin Yassin government, but only approved during the Ismail Sabri Yaakob government.

Fact Check : Parting Words of Judge Augustine Paul?

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

 

Claim : These Are The Parting Words Of Judge Augustine Paul

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

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

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

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

Recommended : Muhyiddin Yassin Claims Jews Want PH To Win GE16!

 

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

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

Note : The fact check credit goes to ManaSiaTauSiaMabuk.

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : Augustine Paul Died In 2010

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

Fact #3 : Augustine Paul Had A Wife + Two Children

Augustine Paul was not alone when he died. He was bedridden due to his illness, but was survived by his wife, Dr. Mary Paul, and his two grown-up children – Dr. Juliana Sharmini and Alan John, who were 29 years old and 27 years old in 2010.

Recommended : Can Agong Appoint Anwar Ibrahim As Interim PM?

Fact #4 : The Footnote Was Removed

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

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

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

Fact #5 : It Appears To Be Written As “Fan Fiction”

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

However, the letter itself was prefaced by this statement:

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

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

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

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

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

Can Agong Appoint Anwar Ibrahim As Interim PM?

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

 

YDP Agong Asked To Meet Anwar Ibrahim + Muhyiddin Yassin

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

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

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

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

Recommended : Muhyiddin Yassin Claims Jews Want PH To Win GE16!

 

Why Agong CANNOT Appoint Anwar Ibrahim As Interim PM!

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

Fact #1 : Many Media Outlets Prematurely Ejaculated

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Anwar Ibrahim appointed caretaker PM | New Straits Times

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #3 : First Group To Exceed 111 MPs Can Form Next Government

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #5 : Malaysia Already Has A Caretaker Prime Minister

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Did Zahid Hamidi Resign From Barisan Nasional?!

Did Zahid Hamidi resign from Barisan Nasional, after the coalition got battered badly in the 15th General Election?!

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

 

Claim : Zahid Hamidi Resigned From Barisan Nasional After GE15 Failure!

Barisan Nasional Chairman Zahid Hamidi has been under pressure to resign, after presiding over the political coalition’s worst performance ever in GE15.

On 23 November 2022, this letter went viral on WhatsApp and social media, claiming purporting to be signed by Zahid Hamidi, after he resigned from Barisan Nasional (my English translation in bold).

Malaysia National Front
Chairman

Media Statement

  1. An emergency meeting was held tonight, attended by the main leaders of each Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition party, as well as BN’s top leadership.
  2. Some decisions have also been reached to determine which coalition will be supported by BN, whether Perikatan Nasional (PN) or Pakatan Harapan (PH) tomorrow, 23 November 2022.
  3. I also reluctantly wish to resign as BN Chairman and also UMNO president to take responsibility for BN’s heavy defeat in the 15th General Election.
  4. Therefore, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob will assume the position of Chairman of BN and also President of UMNO until the UMNO election which will be held in January 2023.

 

Truth : Zahid Hamidi Did NOT Resign From Barisan Nasional!

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

Fact #1 : Barisan Nasional Held A Supreme Council Meeting

It is true that Barisan Nasional held a Supreme Council meeting on the night of 22 November 2022, at 9 PM to be exact.

While Barisan Nasional did not announce the outcome of that Supreme Council meeting, it specifically did not mention that Zahid Hamidi resigned as BN Chairman, or UMNO President.

Fact #2 : Zahid Hamidi Labelled The Letter As False

At 1 PM on 23 November 2022, Zahid Hamidi confirmed that the letter was false, and that he was still BN Chairman, and UMNO President (with my English translation in bold).

Please don’t make the situation worse.

The letter that went viral is false and was created by irresponsible people.

Please pray for the best in this situation.

Mohon jangan dikeruhkan lagi keadaan.

Surat yang telah disebarkan seperti berikut adalah palsu dan rekaan manusia yang tidak bertanggungjawab.

Mohon doakan yang terbaik untuk dalam keadaan sekarang ini.

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

Did Sarawak MPs Fight To Protest GPS Joining PN?!

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

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

 

Claim : Sarawak MPs Fought To Protest GPS Joining PN!

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

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

1. Willie Mongin (P198 Puncak Borneo, PBB)

2. Richard Riot Jaem (P199 Serian, SUPP)

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

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

5. Richard Rapu (P204 Betong, PBB)

6. Huang Tiong Sii (P208 Sarikei, SUPP)

7. Aaron Ago Trading (P210 Kanowit, PRS)

8. Edwin Banta (P214 Selangau, PRS)

9. Alexander Nanta Linggi (P215 Kapit, PBB)

10. Ugak Kumbong (P216 Hulu Rejang, PRS)

11. Tiong King Sing (P217 Bintulu, PDP)

12.亨利森阿贡(P222 Lawas,PBB)

13. Ali Biju (P205 Saratok, PN)

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hung Parliament: Who will be the 10th PM?

Fact #4 : You Can Vote Multiple Times

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #5 : Astro Awani Called It Fake News

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

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

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

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

On Monday, 14 November 2022, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Ismail Sabri, announced that November 18 and 19 will be public holidays, to allow Malaysians to travel home to vote in the 15th General Election (GE15).

Saturday, November 19, was declared a public holiday as some private companies operate on Saturdays, and this would free their employees to vote in the general election.

In addition, private vehicles travelling on highways will not have to pay toll charges on those two days – November 18 and 19, 2022.

The free toll will apply to highways provided by 30 concessionaires, and start from 12:01 AM on November 18, and end on 11:59 PM on November 19.

I know many have been waiting for the announcement and I hereby announce a public holiday for November 18 and 19.

We want to make sure Malaysians can exercise their rights as clearly stipulated in the Federal Constitution. No one can prevent a citizen from exercising their right to vote

The state governments of Negeri Sembilan, Penang and Selangor had earlier declared November 18 as a public holiday. So this declaration by the Prime Minister ensures that all Malaysians will have sufficient time to travel back to vote.

Was Katie Hobbs Caught On Camera Fixing Votes?!

Was Arizona gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs caught on camera in a secure vote counting facility?!

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

 

Claim : Katie Hobbs Was Caught On Camera Fixing Votes!

A screenshot of a CCTV feed has gone viral, with people claiming that it’s evidence Arizona gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs was caught on camera in a secure vote counting facility!

LOOK WHO WAS INSIDE THE BALLOT ROOMS. KATIE HOBBS. Time Stamped too.

How is @katie4az allowed in the ballot counting area the day after elections (time stamped)?
@karilake and the state of Arizona are prob gettin robbed?

👀 Katie Hobbs was inside the ballot room. Unreal. Time stamped too.

 

Truth : Katie Hobbs Was Not Caught On Camera Fixing Votes!

The truth is – this is just another FAKE STORY created by Republicans to create doubt about the integrity of the 2022 midterm election.

Fact #1 : Maricopa County Labelled The Claim As False

Maricopa county official dismissed the claim as false, after confirming that the woman in the photo was a party observer.

Not every woman with glasses is Katie Hobbs.

We can confirm this was a party Observer. Please refrain from making assumptions about workers who happen to wear glasses.

Fact #2 : That Lady Is Not Katie Hobbs

At first glance, yes, you may think that the lady in the CCTV screenshot is Katie Hobbs. She’s white and wears black-rimmed glasses… like perhaps thousands of other white women wearing black-rimmed glasses in Arizona.

But if you take a closer look at the photo, you can see that she is not Katie Hobbs. Katie’s hair is much lighter in colour, and parts more to her left; compared to the lady in the screenshot.

Fact #3 : Live Footage At Count Center Is Streamed Online

Maricopa County is no stranger to election conspiracy theories, since it became the epicentre of a nail gripping fight for Arizona in the 2020 Presidential Election.

The loss of Arizona, after the votes in Maricopa were finalised, was one of the reasons Donald Trump lost to Joe Biden. Needless to say, the former President continues to whine about election fraud in Arizona, and his sycophantic supporters just repeat his false claims.

Because of these controversies, Maricopa County streams live footage of its vote counting centre online, so everyone who wants to watch the counting process is free to do so.

In fact, that is how it was possible for people to take that viral screenshot. If that lady (even if she’s not Hobbs) committed some kind of election fraud, they would have seen it.

But they didn’t. Instead, all the person took was a screenshot of a lady walking with her arms folded.

Fact #4 : She Identified Herself As Jackie Marshall

The lady in the screenshot posted a photo of herself with her daughter, in response to the fake post.

She identified herself as Jackie Marshall, and stated that she was an election judge (poll worker), not a poll watcher.

Fact #5 : There Are Many Observers Watching The Count

American voters of the MAGA persuasion may not know this, but there are many observers at the vote counting center.

Some are partisan observers – from both parties (like Jackie Marshall), while others are non-partisan citizen observers, or members of the media.

So it would be impossible for any gubernatorial candidate to walk into a vote counting center, without getting noticed by any of the many observers walking around.

Fact #6 : Vote Counting Centers Are Secured

Vote counting centers are also secured by law enforcement and county security officers.

In Maricopa County, the polling locations and vote counting facilities are kept safe and secure by the Sheriff’s Office, Maricopa County Security Services, and their local, state and federal law enforcement partners.

It would be impossible for any gubernatorial candidate to walk into a vote counting center, without anyone noticing.

Even if the security guards miss what anything nefarious that goes on – the CCTV feeds are all recorded!

Fact #7 : Katie Hobbs Has Staff / Minions

Think about this for just a minute. Katie Hobbs is the sitting Arizona Secretary of State. She has staff… minions, if you prefer, to do her bidding.

Do you really believe that she would waste her precious time stuffing ballots, if she can get someone else to do it for her?

Even if you think she’s that desperate, why put her political career at risk, when she can get someone else to risk their own careers instead?

Use a little common sense, will ya? This fake story is so full of holes, it might as well be Swiss cheese!

GE15 : Must You Print Details + Vote Within 2 Hours?!

Must you print your voting details, and only vote within 2 hours, at the upcoming GE15 Malaysia general election?!

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

 

Claim : You Must Print Details + Vote Within 2 Hours On GE15!

People are sharing screenshots of GE15 voting details, warning that Malaysian voters must print them out, and vote within 2 hours!

New rules from SPR to make it did to vote this GE15. You need to print out your details from SPR website. You are only allowed to vote 8am to 10am for morning n 2pm to 4pm. Even though it is stated voting time is 10 hours, the guards will not allow people in from 10am to 1pm n voting centers will close 4pm sharp. This is a cheating method for UMNO to win. Make sure you have a given number in your details. Those without number will not be allowed in. Plus no handphone allowed. Please make police reports. This is the biggest scam from SPR.

UMNO wants to win big in Putrajaya, KL n Selangor hence the obstacles so that the extra boxes hidden will be bought out .

New rules fr SPR to make it difficult to vote.

Recommended : Do You Need A Readable MyKad To Vote In Election?!

 

Truth : You Don’t Need To Print Details / Vote Within 2 Hours On GE15!

These are just more examples of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : These Are Not New SPR Rules

The Malaysian Parliament and Malaysia Election Commission (SPR) made a few changes since the last election:

  • voting age has been reduced from 21 to 18
  • automatic voter registration means all Malaysians age 18 and above are eligible to vote
  • postal voting for all overseas Malaysians, instead of the police and military

Other than those few changes, there have been no changes to how the general election works in Malaysia.

Fact #2 : You Are Not Required To Print Anything

The SPR website allows you to check your voting details, so you know where to go on election day – 19 November 2022.

It also gives you other useful information, like your Saluran (voting channel) and the Bilangan (Count – basically, your voting number).

However, there is NO REQUIREMENT to print anything. You will be allowed in to vote, even if you do not print your voting details. Just make sure you bring your MyKad!

Fact #3 : You Are Not Required To Note Your Saluran / Bilangan

At the bottom of this section, the SPR asks everyone to note their Saluran and Bilangan numbers, and bring them to the voting centre (with my translation in English).

Sila catat nombor Saluran serta nombor Bilangan dan bawa ke Pusat Mengundi

Please note your Channel and Count numbers, and bring them to the Voting Centre

However, you will NOT be turned away if you did not print anything, or even bother to remember your Channel and Count numbers.

Noting the Channel and Count numbers will simply help election officials quickly locate you on the voting list, speeding up the process.

Help them speed up the process – note down and tell them your Saluran (Channel) and Bilangan (Count) numbers, so more voters can quickly vote on election day!

Fact #4 : Voting Hours Are Fixed From 8 AM to 6 PM

The fake news falsely claimed that people are only allowed to vote from 8 AM to 10 AM in the morning, and from 2 PM to 4 PM in the afternoon.

The voting hours for the GE15 general election in Malaysia are fixed from 8 AM until 6 PM, on 19 November 2022.

Fact #5 : Recommended Voting Hours Are A Suggestion, Not Rule

People may be confused by the SPR listing (in bold red colour, no less!) the recommended voting time (with my translation in English).

Masa Keluar Mengundi Yang Digalakkan

Recommended Time To Vote

The recommended 2-hour period varies from person to person, and is merely a suggestion, not a rule. You do NOT have to follow the recommended voting hours.

The recommended voting time appears to be SPR’s attempt to minimise crowding by spacing voters out into 2 hour slots. It is up to you to follow their recommendation, or come whenever it’s convenient.

However, to avoid missing out on the opportunity to vote on GE15, please come at least an hour or two before the 6 PM deadline!

Recommended : Postal Voting Guide For Overseas Malaysians!

Fact #6 : You Are Allowed To Bring Your Phone

Malaysians love to post selfies or photos showing that they have done their duty, and voted in the general election.

Even though former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad (belatedly) asked the SPR to ban people from bringing their phones to the polling centre, there is no such phone ban.

You are still allowed to bring your phone to the polling centre on the GE15 election day.

Did Paul Pelosi Identify David DePape As A Friend?!

Did Paul Pelosi identify David DePape as a friend on his 9-1-1 emergency call?!

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

 

Claim : Paul Pelosi Identified David DePape As A Friend On 911 Call!

US conservatives like Dinesh D’Souza are claiming that Paul Pelosi identified David DePape as a friend on his 9-1-1 call.

Dinesh D’Souza : How did Pelosi know his attacker’s name? He told the police the assailant’s name was “David.” He also said David was his “friend.” This is on the police recording and you can listen to it yourself. So how do you explain these two telling facts?

KevinBee86 : Paul Pelosi’s 911 call reveals he knew the man, his name is David and describes him as his friend. In the beginning he said he didn’t know him but later, Paul confessed.

 

Truth : Paul Pelosi Did Not Call David DePape A Friend On 911 Call!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by US conservative and right wing conspiracy theorists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : David DePape Broke Into The Pelosi Residence

First, let me just point out a very salient fact – David DePape broke into the Pelosi residence, by breaking a glass door at the back using a hammer he brought.

Perhaps this is how Dinesh D’Souza’s friends visit him – by breaking through his rear door with a hammer, but I reckon that most of us have better friends than that.

Fact #2 : Paul Pelosi Was Asleep When DePape Broke In

According to David DePape’s own testimony, he broke into the Pelosi residence at around 2 AM, and found Paul Pelosi sleeping alone upstairs.

DePape then woke Pelosi up, asking him if he’s Paul Pelosi, and where his wife – the US Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, was.

Standing over Mr. Pelosi’s bedside just after 2:00 a.m., Defendant startled Mr. Pelosi awake by asking “Are you Paul Pelosi?”

Defendant carried a large hammer in his right hand and several white, plastic zip ties in his left hand. Defendant then repeated, “Where’s Nancy? Where’s Nancy?”

Read more : Did Paul Pelosi Hire David DePape As Prostitute?!

Fact #3 : Paul Pelosi Called 9-1-1 In Front Of David DePape

Paul Pelosi managed to make his way to his bathroom, where his phone was charging. He grabbed his phone and called 9-1-1, putting the phone on speaker.

This is an important point – DePape was standing just three feet away, holding a large hammer, gesturing to him to get off the phone. So Pelosi had to alert the dispatcher without clearly calling for help.

Think about how difficult it was – he had to remain on the phone, and keep DePape calm, while speaking in code to alert the dispatcher to the danger he was facing.

Fact #4 : Paul Pelosi Said He Did Not Know David DePape

When Paul Pelosi told the dispatcher that a “gentleman just uh came into the house uh and he wants to wait for my wife to come home“, she asked him if he knew the person.

Pelosi said “he did not“, and that “the man was telling him not to do anything“.

Fact #5 : Police Dispatcher Audio Was Mischaracterised

The police audio clip, recorded at 2:28 AM local time, is being mischaracterised as evidence that Paul Pelosi called David DePape a friend.

The (male) operator  can be heard saying that the caller stated that “there is a male in his home and he is going to wait for his wife“.

The (male) operator also said that “he doesn’t know who the man is, but he [DePape] advised that his name is David, and that he is a friend“.

At that point, the (female) 9-1-1 dispatcher, Heather Grives, realised that the call was suspicious and immediately dispatched the police to the Pelosi residence as an emergency.

Recommended : Was Paul Pelosi Arrested For Child Porn + Cocaine?!

Fact #6 : David DePape Identified Himself As A Friend

So how do we really know that the (male) operator was referring to DePape, and not Pelosi?

Now, this is where it gets interesting – it was DePape who identified himself to the dispatcher as “David“, and it was DePape who called himself “a friend of theirs“.

Remember – Paul Pelosi’s phone was on speaker mode, and both he and DePape can hear the conversation, and speak to the dispatcher.

The dispatcher, Heather Grives, then asked for the man’s name and the man responded, “My name is David.

When the dispatcher asked who David is, Mr. Pelosi said, “I don’t know,” but David said, “I’m a friend of theirs.

Mr. Pelosi then confirmed with the dispatcher that he did not know the man. “He’s telling me I am being very lazy, so I’ve gotta to stop talking to you, okay?”

When the dispatcher offered to stay on the line with Mr. Pelosi to make sure everything is okay, Mr. Pelosi said, “No, he wants me to get the hell off the phone.” The call ended.

Did Maria Elena Boschi Publicly Expose Her Knickers?!

The photo of Italian minister Maria Elena Boschi exposing her underwear during her swearing-in ceremony has gone viral again!

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

 

Claim : Maria Elena Boschi Exposed Her Knickers During Swearing-In Ceremony!

A photo of Italian minister Maria Elena Boschi exposing her underwear during her swearing-in ceremony keeps going viral on WhatsApp, and social media like Facebook and Twitter!

It’s often accompanied by comments like these :

This is the Italian Minister Maria Elena Boschi signing up for her new government position.

In my humble opinion, it is the wrong choice of shoe colour to wear with that suit in such an important occasion !

The new Italian minister, Maria Elena Boschi signing up for her new government.
In G-string we stand. Lol

Gotta love the Italians. Italian Minister Maria Elena Boschi signing up for her new government position. Some might argue for a different choice of shoe color, but that would be quibbling.

 

Truth : Maria Elena Boschi Did NOT Expose Her Knickers At All!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and shared by misogynists who cannot stand a woman in power, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Maria Elena Boschi Was Sworn In On 22 February 2014

First, let me just point out that the viral photo isn’t new, even though it just went viral again in 2022.

The photo first went viral in February 2014, after Maria Elena Boschi was sworn into office as the Minister for Constitutional Reform.

Since then, it has repeatedly gone viral again and again over the years, each time with people claiming that she was “just” sworn into office. No, that happened in 2014.

Fact #2 : Maria Elena Boschi Did Not Expose Her Knickers

The viral photo was edited from the original photo taken during Maria Elena Boschi’s 2014 swearing-in ceremony. Here is a comparison I created of the original photo (left), and the edited photo (right).

Fact #3 : Maria Elena Boschi Faced Sexist Remarks

The photoshopped thong photo was not the only misogynist insult Maria Elena Boschi had to put up with. She was mocked for wearing the electric blue trouser suit:

Italian newspaper, Cormier della Sera described the suit as having a colour “unknown in nature”, while La Stampa said that it resembled something that might be worn by “a Marvel superhero like Captain America”.

La Stampa also criticised her trousers, saying that they were so tight that “many were reminded of Pippa Middleton’s silhouette” when she bent over to sign her name.

In 2016, Il Fatto Quotidiano would publish a sexist cartoon of Boschi on its front page, showing her thighs prominently, with headlines that played on the Italian word for “thighs” – cosce.

The Italian media appeared to be focused on how she looked, and not so much on her credentials – she was a lawyer, a member of the Chamber of Deputies since 2013, and a minister who pushed through a complicated series of reforms to the Italian Senate.

Fortunately, she has her supporters who call her by her acronym, MEB.

Fact #4 : Viral Photo Also Used To Mock Melania Trump

Oddly enough, the same photo was used to mock Melania Trump, when she was still the US First Lady, with comments like these:

This is YALL’S FIRST LADY!!! AND THEY GOT THE NERVE TO TALK ABOUT FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA wearing sleeveless dresses??? #melaniatrump #pornstar

Needless to say – that was not Melania Trump. Regardless of how we feel about her, it is still misogynistic.

Why Hugh McKean Did NOT Die From Vaccine SADS!

Colorado State Representative Hugh McKean did NOT die from the COVID-19 vaccine, and here are the reasons why!

 

Claim : Hugh McKean Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Hugh McKean died suddenly at 55 years of age, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the Colorado State Representative died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on her death:

Hugh McKean 55 yrs dies suddenly , COD not given , every day I read it hear of young people falling over dead .. does anyone wonder if these people took the Covid vaccine ? I cannot be the only one who questions ALL these deaths.

And another one… Doctors are baffled!

Colorado GOP official Hugh McKean dies suddenly at 55

WND : Was it the jabs? : Republican lawmaker dies suddenly
When was he last boosted with the jab of death?

Recommended : Katy Perry Explains Eye Glitch + Mocks Vaccine, Robot Claims!

 

Truth : Hugh McKean Died Of A Heart Attack!

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

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

Fact #1 : Hugh McKean Died Of A Heart Attack!

Hugh McKean (born October 27, 1967) passed away on Sunday, October 30, 2022 – just three days after his 55th birthday.

According to his deputy chief of staff, Roger Hudson, McKean had complained of pain on the left side of his torso recently. But at that time, he attributed the pain to the stress of building a new home.

Other sources said that McKean complained of chest pain on Saturday, and called a friend late that n night. But by the time she reached his Loveland home on early Sunday, he was already dead.

Dr. Joe White from the Larimer County Coroner’s Office conducted a forensic autopsy on Hugh McKean’s body, and determined that his cause of death was acute myocardial infarction, and noted that it was a natural cause of death.

On 10/30/2022, the Larimer County Coroner’s Office responded to Loveland, CO to investigate the death of a 55-year-old male. The decedent was identified as Colorado State Representative Hugh McKean of Loveland, CO. Rep. McKean was transported to the Larimer County Coroner’s Office where a forensic autopsy was performed.

Larimer County Forensic Pathologist Dr. Joe White has determined the following:

Cause of Death: Acute Myocardial Infarction

Manner of Death: Natural

No other information will be released at this time.

So let me be clear – Hugh McKean died from a heart attack, not a COVID-19 vaccine side effect of any kind.

Recommended : Doug Brignole Died From COVID-19, Not Vaccine!

Fact #2 : Heart Attack Is A Common Cause Of Sudden Death

An acute myocardial infarction (AMI), or a heart attack, occurs when blood supply to the heart muscle is abruptly cut off, usually due to a blockage of one or more coronary arteries.

It is a very common cause of sudden death. Every year, about 805,000 Americans suffer a heart attack, of which about 382,000 die. Every year.

Just to be clear – people have been dying from heart attacks long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause heart attacks, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Read more : Did Pfizer Add Heart Attack Drug To COVID Vaccine For Kids?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Hugh McKean Was Vaccinated

Colorado state lawmakers were offered early access to COVID-19 vaccines in January 2021, but it was not mandatory. The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

The state sent 240 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to UCHealth to vaccinate legislators and their staff, although the governor’s office does not know how many actually received the shots.
– Conor Cahill, spokesperson for Colorado Governor Jared Polis (January 30, 2021)

It is currently unknown if Hugh McKean was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects. For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated!

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

Read more : Kaden Clymer : 6-Foot Blood Clot NOT From Vaccine!

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Hugh McKean was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he definitely received his vaccine doses 19 months earlier.

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #5 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up sudden deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

The fact that the Larimer County Coroner’s Office did not not discover any of these findings in their autopsy of Hugh McKean proves that the vaccines were not a factor in his death.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Politicians Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing sudden deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is just the latest dozen that I fact checked!

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

He / she will need to compare the serial numbers of the voting ballots with those on the envelopes, and confirm that they are the same.

The witness must then fill in and sign both Borang 2 forms, with his / her information:

  • Full name
  • Current address
  • MyKad number
  • Signature
  • Date (when he/she signed Borang 2 as a witness)

Step 4 : You must now complete the Borang 2 forms with your own information.

  • Full Name
  • MyKad number
  • Signature

Step 5 : Vote for your preferred Parliament candidate (only one candidate) by marking the ballot with an X using a pen.

Step 6 : Fold the Parliament ballot, and put it into the white Sampul A envelope marked Parliamen (Parliament), and seal the envelope with glue.

Step 7 : Fold the completed white Borang 2, and put it into the white Sampul B envelope, together with the white Sampul A (Parliamen) envelope. Seal the white Sampul B envelope with glue.

Step 8 : Vote for your preferred State Assembly candidate (only one candidate) by marking the ballot with an X using a pen.

Step 9 : Fold the State ballot, and put it into the pink / orange Sampul A envelope marked Negeri (State), and seal the envelope with glue.

Step 10 : Fold the completed pink Borang 2, and put it into the pink / orange Sampul B envelope, together with the pink / orange Sampul A (Negeri) envelope. Seal the pink / orange Sampul B envelope with glue.

Step 11 : You must now mail the two Sampul Surat B (which have a pre-printed address) to Malaysia using regular mail service or courier service, but at your own cost.

You can combine them in a single envelope to save cost. If your family is voting in the same constituency, you can also share the same envelope for your votes. Just copy the address from the Sampul Surat B.

Alternatively, you can travel back to Malaysia and place the voting ballots into the ballot box at the office of the returning officer.

Cynthia Lai Did NOT Die From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Toronto councillor Cynthia Lai is the latest victim of anti-vaccination activists who claim that she was a victim of vaccine sudden death!

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

 

Claim : Cynthia Lai Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Cynthia Lai suddenly died just 3 days before her election, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the Toronto city councillor died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on her death:

Marc Emery : Let me guess, cardiac arrest? Sudden Adult Death syndrome? Since candidate Lai was running in an election, she presumed herself in excellent health.

Maya Rose : City councillor Cynthia Lai pushed the COVID vaccines and died suddenly days before her reelection. Please stop doing this to yourselves. 🚫☣️💉

Defiant Baptist : #CynthiaLai died (suddenitis) mere days after promoting the #SafeAndEffective treatments for children. That’s some cosmic justice right there.

Truth : Cynthia Lai Did NOT Die From Vaccine Sudden Death!

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

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

Fact #1 : Cynthia Lai Died From Gallbladder Cancer

Cynthia Lai, who was a Scarborough North city councillor, died on Friday, October 21, 2022, at the age of 68.

Her campaign manager, Hatch Aynedjian, confirmed her death on Friday afternoon, and said that Cynthia Lai “died in hospital, and was surrounded by family“.

Aynedjian also said that Cynthia Lai had been battling an illness throughout this year, and only decided to run for re-election when her condition improved in the spring.

However, her condition deteriorated and she ended up campaigning from a hospital bed, and missed an all-candidates meeting on October 19, 2022.

The City of Toronto confirmed that Cynthia Lai had been suffering from gallbladder cancer.

So let me be clear – Cynthia Lai’s cause of death was gallbladder cancer, not the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #2 : Cynthia Lai Was Fully-Vaccinated

Cynthia Lai was fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in April 2021, and did not appear to suffer any ill effects.

In fact Cynthia Lai was a strong advocate of vaccination, and her last Twitter post was a retweet of a Toronto Public Health recommendation that everyone 5 years and older get a fall booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Until her hospitalisation and death, she was very active in her community, proving that the COVID-19 vaccines had no ill effects on her.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 vaccines only protect against severe disease and death from the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. They cannot protect against gallbladder cancer…

Fact #3 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

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

Please help us FIGHT FAKE NEWS by sharing this fact check article out, and please SUPPORT our work!

Don’t forget to protect yourself, and your family, by vaccinating against COVID-19!
