Is WEF Planning Cyber Attack To Disrupt 2024 Election?!

Is the WEF planning to launch a ‘false flag’ cyber attack to disrupt the 2024 US Presidential election?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Plans Cyber Attack To Disrupt 2024 Election!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that the World Economic Forum (WEF) is planning to launch a ‘false flag’ cyber attack to disrupt the 2024 US Presidential election!

WEF Insider: Imminent ‘False Flag’ Cyber Attack Will Disrupt 2024 Election

Recommended : WEF ordered electors to not certify Trump’s 2024 election win?!

 

No Evidence WEF Plans Cyber Attack To Disrupt 2024 Election!

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

Fact #1 : No Evidence WEF Plans Cyber Attack To Disrupt 2024 Election!

Let me start by pointing out that there is no evidence of the World Economic Forum (WEF) plans to launch a cyber attack to disrupt the 2024 President election.

If a WEF insider did indeed reveal such a plan, it would have gone viral, and it would have been condemned by everyone from the left to the right. The FBI and US Department of Homeland Security would also have launched criminal investigations.

Yet, there was no such report by the mainstream media, and no social media outrage. Heck, even right-wing American websites did not so much as squeak about a juicy WEF plot to launch a cyber attack against the United States???

That’s because that never happened. The People’s Voice article, unsurprisingly, offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : Voters Don’t Use Ballot Tabulators

The People’s Voice article claimed that South Carolina primary voters were “reportedly unable to vote due to ballot tabulators being unable to connect to the internet [sic]”.

Well, I could find no report of South Carolina primary voters not being able to vote because ballot tabulators were unable to connect to the Internet. That’s probably because no voter ever uses ballot tabulators to cast their vote.

Ballot tabulators are machines used to scan and count ballots, and are never used by voters to cast their votes! So how would any ballot tabulator failure prevent voters from casting their votes?

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article offered no evidence of such ballot tabulator failure, or that South Carolina voters were prevented from voting in its 2024 Presidential primary elections.

Fact #3 : South Carolina Voting System Isn’t Connected To Internet

According to the South Carolina Election Commission, the South Carolina voting system is never connected to the Internet.

In fact, the ballot marking devices (BMD), ballot scanners, and computers used to tabulate the votes, are not even capable of being connected to the Internet!

Is the voting system connected to the Internet?

No, the voting system is never connected to the internet. Computers used to tabulate votes, BMDs, and ballot scanners used in South Carolina are not even capable of being connected to the Internet.

Needless to say, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that ballot tabulators used in South Carolina were even capable of being connected to the Internet, never mind requiring it to work!

Fact #4 : WEF Screenshot Is Fake

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

The coming cyber attack will allow a New World Order to emerge.

That is most definitely a fake screenshot, because there is no such post on X by the World Economic Forum. And it’s a really silly creation too – why would the WEF reveal its nefarious cyber attack plan publicly?

Yet again, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that such a post ever existed! In fact, it would not need some “WEF insider” to spill the beans when the WEF itself already publicly revealed its cyber attack plan!

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

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

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

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

WEF ordered electors to not certify Trump’s 2024 election win?!

Did the WEF just order US electors to not certify Trump’s 2024 election win?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Orders US Electors To Not Certify Trump’s 2024 Election Win!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that the WEF just order US electors to NOT certify Trump’s 2024 election win!

WEF Orders U.S. Electors To Not Certify Trump’s 2024 Election Win

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

 

Truth : WEF Did Not Order US Electors To Not Certify Trump’s 2024 Election Win!

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

Fact #1 : WEF Did Not Order US Electors To Do Anything

Let me start by pointing out that the World Economic Forum (WEF) did not order or instruct any US elector to not certify Trump’s 2024 election win.

If the WEF actually did that, it would not only have been reported widely by the mainstream media, it would have been lambasted by Trump supporters, and everyone else who believes in a fair election.

Yet, there was no such report, not even some social media outrage. That’s because that never happened.

The People’s Voice article, unsurprisingly, offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim. No document, not even a (doctored?) audio or video of WEF chairman Klaus Schwab issuing those orders.

Fact #2 : WEF Wasn’t Even Mentioned In The Atlantic Article

The source of this nonsensical claim is an article by The Atlantic called “How Democrats Could Disqualify Trump If The Supreme Court Doesn’t“. Guess what – the World Economic Forum wasn’t even mentioned in the article!

So how did The People’s Voice article conclude that the WEF just ordered or instructed US electors to not certify Donald Trump??? Yet again, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its claim…

Fact #3 : WEF Does Not Fund The Atlantic

The People’s Voice article called The Atlantic a “WEF-funded publication“. As far as I can tell – that’s utter bollocks.

Steve Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs acquired majority ownership of The Atlantic on 28 July 2017, through her Emerson Collective organisation. This relegated David G. Bradley and Atlantic Media to the minority ownership of The Atlantic.

Of course, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence, just a single link to a profile of The Atlantic’s current CEO, Nicholas Thompson on the WEF website.

Fact #4 : Article Was About Congress, Not Electors

The Atlantic article did not mention anything about electors being ordered not to certify Trump’s win in the 2024 Presidential election (which is not a foregone conclusion).

The article was about the opinions of Democrats in the US Congress, and has nothing to do with the electors, appointed by each state to form the US Electoral College.

Fact #5 : Democrats Objected To Every GOP President Since 2000

The Atlantic article actually pointed out that some Democrats have objected to the certification of each GOP presidential winner since 2000. But that never stopped those GOP presidential winners from being certified as the President of the United States.

So, the WEF would not actually have to “order” or “instruct” any member of Congress to object to the certification of Donald Trump, if he does actually win the 2024 Presidential election.

Fact #6 : Democrats Will Not Commit Until Supreme Court Affirms Eligibility

The Atlantic article points out that some Democrats are hesitant about certifying a Trump win in 2024, unless the US Supreme Court affirms his eligibility to serve another term as president. After all – the Fourteenth Amendment bars people who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” from holding office.

While Donald Trump has not yet been convicted of fomenting an insurrection, every House Democrat together with 10 Republicans voted to impeach Trump for “incitement of insurrection” in early 2021. So, those members of Congress believe that Donald Trump is an “insurrectionist” who is ineligible to serve as president.

The same article also pointed out that if the Supreme Court affirms his eligibility, the Democrats have said that they would vote for certification if Trump wins.

Eric Swalwell (D-CA) : I’m going to follow the law. I would not object out of protest of how the Supreme Court comes down. It would be doing what I didn’t like about the January 6 Republicans.

Recommended : Biden hired Bill Gates to flood Internet with AI censorship bots?!

Fact #7 : Republicans Also Decline To Commit To Certify

While some Democrats who are refusing to commit to certifying a Trump win in 2024 because they believe that he is guilty of insurrection, top Republicans like Representative Elise Stefanik – the House GOP conference chair, refused to commit to certifying a Joe Biden win, even though he does not face any questions about his eligibility.

Fact #8 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

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

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

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

Did a child rape victim testify that Michelle Obama raped her when she was a man?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Michelle Obama Raped Child When She Was A Man!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that a child rape victim testify that Michelle Obama raped her when she was a man!

Recommended : Does Red Cross Test COVID-Vaccinated Blood Donations?

 

Truth : WHO Did Not Warn Everyone Will Have Cancer Within 20 Years!

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

Fact #1 : This Is An Old Claim From 2020

Let me start by pointing out that this is an old claim from 2020, when a woman who called Ally Carter posted on Instagram that Barack Obama and Joe Biden raped her.

She claimed to have been trafficked in underground tunnels that run under schools, cemeteries, and Universal Studios to elites living in Hollywood, the Buckingham Palace, and the Getty Museum since she was thirteen years old.

Stew Peters interview mentioned in the The People’s Voice article occurred on Wednesday, 10 November 2021 – more than 2 years ago!

Fact #2 : None Of Those Claims Were Ever Proven True

Despite these claims surfacing many years ago, Ally Carter never provided any evidence that:

  • she was sold to Joe Biden multiple times, or
  • there are millions of sex abuse victims like her, or
  • some sex abuse victims had their limbs cut off so they cannot fight back against the abuse, or
  • some abusers drained their victims’ blood to use as a fountain of youth, or
  • CPS (Child Protective Services) buys, sells, and trades children

Needless to say, The People’s Voice article provided zero evidence to back up those claims.

Fact #3 : Michelle Obama Was Never A Man

The claims that Michelle Obama is a transgender woman who was born a man is not only false, it’s absurdly ridiculous, because she gave birth to two girls – Malia Obama and Sasha Obama.

For those who are wondering – transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus. And no, Malia and Sasha Obama were not adopted.

Even if you ignore the fact that she gave birth to two girls, Michelle Obama grew up as a female. Her family and friends only knew her as a girl and then, a woman. Never as a boy or a man who later became transgender.

Michelle Obama sometimes shares photos of her childhood on her Instagram account. They are all proof that she grew up as a girl, never as a boy.

On the other hand, all these claims that she was born a boy has never been backed by any evidence. Ally Carter certainly offered no evidence that Michelle Obama was born a man.

In fact, if Ally Carter truly was raped by Michelle Obama, she would have know that Michelle was a woman through and through…

Fact #4 : Barack + Michelle Obama Photo Is Fake

On top of that, The People’s Voice article and video used a fake cover photo, which shows a masculine Michelle Obama with a feminised Barack Obama.

It is an “upgraded” version of the fake Barack and Michelle Obama Christmas photo that went viral in 2022.

Here is our comparison, which shows the original Christmas photo that Michelle Obama posted on her Instagram account on 25 December 2014, and the edited photo which went viral in 2022.

Why would anyone need to doctor this photo if Michelle Obama was really a man???

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

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

Are Soldiers Now Making Arrests Across The United States?!

Have over a million soldiers been deployed to make arrests across the United States?!

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

 

Claim : Soldiers Are Making Arrests Across The United States!

People are sharing a video on X (formerly Twitter), which appears to show soldiers marching, together with claims that over a million of them are now making arrests across the United States!

GhostEzra : OVER 1 MILLION MILITARY ARE NOW ACROSS THE UNITED STATES TO MAKE ARRESTS

Recommended : Are Marines + Army Rangers Being Sent To Texas Border?!

 

Truth : Soldiers Are Not Making Arrests Across The United States!

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

Fact #1 : Viral Video Is From January 2021

Let me start by pointing out that the viral video isn’t new. It was actually recorded and posted by CNN’s Manu Raju on 19 January 2021 – more than 3 years ago!

Anyone who claims that this shows a current event in February 2024 is lying to you.

Fact #2 : Soldiers Were Marching To Protect Biden Inauguration

The viral video does not show American soldiers marching to arrest anyone. It actually shows National Guard troops marching into Washington D.C. to protect the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

The troops were deployed in unprecedented numbers to safeguard the capital after the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol just days earlier, on January 6, 2021.

Manu Raju posted the video on both his Instagram and Twitter accounts, with the following descriptions:

Fact #3 : US Only Has 1.4 Million Active Military Personnel

As per Statista, the United States has the world’s third largest army with about 1.4 million active military personnel, as of 2022. However, that is made up of the many military branches in the United States:

  • Army Active Duty : 461,657
  • Navy Active Duty : 340,065
  • Army National Guard : 329,705
  • Air Force Active Duty : 320,421
  • Army Reserve : 176,171
  • Marine Corps Active Duty : 174,577
  • Air National Guard : 104,984
  • Air Force Reserve : 68,048
  • Navy Reserve : 55,224
  • Marine Corps Reserve : 32,599
  • Space Force Active Duty : 8,000

The US Army alone does not have 1 million soldiers, even if it brought in its entire reserves, as well as the National Guard. So it is literally impossible for “over a million” soldiers to be deployed to make arrests across the United States.

That number available for the US Army to deploy within the United States is far below 1 million, because approximately 171,000 troops are deployed overseas!

Even the approximately 800,000 US Army active, reserve and National Guard troops available in the United States cannot all be deployed, because a significant number has to be retained to man its many bases, and provide logistical or technical support.

Fact #5 : US Military Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that the US military personnel were sent to arrest civilians all across the United States. For what crime? For what purpose? None of that was explained, but yet, many people believed it is true.

All that is utter nonsense, because the United States is not a police state, or under martial law. In the US, criminals are arrested by the state police, or the FBI, depending on the nature of the crime committed. US military members would never be involved in such arrests.

Does Viral Photo Show Stacks Of Joe Biden Ballots?!

Does a viral photo show sequentially-arranged stacks of Joe Biden ballots, proving that the 2020 US presidential election was rigged?!

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

People are sharing a photo on X (formerly Twitter), which appears to show stacks of Joe Biden ballots neatly arranged in sequential order, proving that the 2020 US presidential election was rigged!

Recommended : Did Taylor Swift Murder Fan In Illuminati Blood Ritual?!

 

Truth : Viral Photo Does Not Show Stacks Of Joe Biden Ballots!

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

Fact #1 : Viral Photo Is A Stock Photo

Let me start by pointing out that the viral photo is actually a stock photo taken by Drew Angerer, and is available on Getty Images as image number 620878242.

Fact #2 : Viral Photo Is From 2016 Election

The viral photo has nothing to do with the 2020 US Presidential election, because it was taken during the 2016 US Presidential election cycle. On 3 November 2016, to be specific.

For the benefit of people who are confused about the two elections, Joe Biden did not participate in the 2016 election, so it is impossible for his name to be on those 2016 ballot papers.

Donald Trump ran against Hillary Clinton in 2016, and won. However, Trump would lose the 2020 election against Joe Biden.

Fact #3 : They Were Test Ballot Papers

In addition – those were not actual ballots. They were test ballots papers that were being scanned on 3 November 2016 to ascertain that the voting machines and ballot scanners were working properly. This was explained clearly in the description of the stock photo in Getty Images:

Polling Machines Are Prepared For Tuesday’s Presidential Election

NEW YORK, NY – NOVEMBER 3: Test ballots wait to be scanned at a Board of Elections Elections voting machine facility warehouse, November 3, 2016 in the Bronx borough in New York City. The voting booths, ballot scanners and other supplies will be picked up on Monday and delivered to area Bronx polling places ahead of Tuesday’s election. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

Fact #4 : No Evidence Of Systemic Voter Fraud In 2020

Right after the 2020 US Presidential election concluded, 62 lawsuits were filed to contest the election process, vote counting, and vote certification process in 9 states.

Nearly all of those lawsuits were quickly dismissed or dropped due to the lack of evidence, or lack of standing. To date, none of the lawsuits have shown any systemic voter fraud. In fact,

In fact, the conservative group Project Veritas publicly acknowledged on Monday, 5 February 2024, that its claims of ballot mishandling at a Pennsylvania post office in 2020 were untrue. As the Associated Press explained:

Project Veritas admits there was no evidence of election fraud at Pennsylvania post office in 202

The group produced videos in the wake of the 2020 presidential election based on claims from a postal worker in Erie, Pennsylvania, who said he had overheard a conversation between the postmaster and a supervisor about illegally backdating mail-in presidential ballots.

The admission Monday was the latest evidence that Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election were baseless. The former president’s allegations of massive voting fraud have been dismissed by a succession of judges and refuted by state election officials and his former attorney general, William Barr.

Both Project Veritas and O’Keefe said in their statements posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, that they are not aware of any evidence or other allegation of election fraud in Erie during the 2020 election.

Did Barack Obama’s Mother Pose In Nude Photos?!

Did Barack Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, pose in nude photos for his “real” father, Frank Marshall Davis?!

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

 

Claim : Barack Obama’s Mother Posed In Nude Photos!

People are posting photos purportedly of Barack Obama’s mother, when she posed in nude photos, suggesting that the photographer, Frank Marshall Davis, was his real father, and not Barack Obama Sr.!

Stew Peters : Never forget that this “lady’s” son was the first “black” president of the United States. 🇺🇸

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

 

Truth : Barack Obama’s Mother Did Not Pose Nude For Men’s Magazines!

This is yet another example of fake news created about former President Barack Obama, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Nude Photos Are Not Of Barack Obama’s Mother

This is really silly, but let me just start by pointing out that Barack Obama’s mother – Stanley Ann Dunham, is not the woman seen in those viral nude photos.

Those nude photos are also not private photos taken by Frank Marshall Davis, because they appeared in the men’s magazine called Exotique!

Fact #2 : Ann Dunham Only Moved To Hawaii In 1960

It is temporally impossible for Ann Dunham to be the woman in those photos, or even be acquainted with Frank Marshall Davis when those photos were taken, because she only moved to Hawaii in 1960.

  • Those viral photos appeared in the men’s magazine called Exotique in 1958. Stanley Ann Dunham was still living in Washington when those photos were published.
  • The Dunham family did not move to Hawaii until the summer of 1960 – two years after those photos were published.
  • The magazine Exotique ceased publication in 1959 – one year before Barack Obama’s mother first stepped foot in Hawaii.

Unless Stanley Ann Dunham had a time machine in the 1960s, it would be impossible for her to travel back in time to pose nude in 1958.

Fact #2 : Posing Nude Isn’t Illegal

Even if Barack Obama’s mother posed nude for men’s magazines, that wouldn’t have been illegal, or wrong.

In fact, former First Lady Melania Trump famously posed nude in the January 2000 edition of GQ magazine, while she was Donald Trump’s girlfriend, Melania Knauss.

Recommended : Did Taylor Swift Show Trump Won Flag At 2024 Grammys?!

Fact #3 : Nude Photos Claim Originated In 2012

I should also point out that these claims about Barack Obama’s mother posing nude for men’s magazines is very old, originating with the 2012 conspiracy movie, Dreams from My Real Father. by conspiracy theorist Joel Gilbert.

Loren Collins did a great job fact checking that very old claim, which you can read here and here.

We may never know who the mystery model is. But the Dunham family didn’t move to Hawaii until the summer of 1960. Unless Ann Dunham had access to a time machine in the 1960s, it simply cannot be her.

Moreover, Joel Gilbert knows this. He found that opera glove photo; it was not circulating the web as an ‘Ann’ photo prior to his videos. He knows it came from Exotique, a magazine that ceased publication in 1959. From WND: “Gilbert found that several of the photos in the collection appeared in a magazine called Exotique, published by pin-up photographer Leonard Burtman, who worked in New York City.”

Thus he knows this picture was published two years before Ann first stepped foot in Hawaii, years before she could have met Frank Marshall Davis. And yet he explicitly claims, multiple times, that the photo was TAKEN at Christmastime 1960. This is not a lie of ignorance or mistake; it is a lie of pure, fully-informed malice.

It is interesting that these old photos and long-debunked claims should resurface in 2024, in the run-up to the 2024 US Presidential Election. Is it because some conservatives believe that Michelle Obama might run for the US Presidency?

Fact #4 : Ann Dunham Would Have Been Underage

Joel Gilbert not only put those photos in his movie, he mailed out more than a million copies to voters in Iowa, Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Colorado, in an apparent attempt to influence the 2012 US presidential election.

However, Stanley Ann Dunham was born in 1942, and would have been 15 years old – underage, when those photos were originally published in 1958.

If those photos are really of Ann Dunham, it would mean that Joel Gilbert knowingly published child pornography, and illegally distributed them to more than a million people!

Claim : Taylor Swift Showed Trump Won Flag At 2024 Grammys!

People are sharing a video on X (formerly Twitter), which appears to show music superstar Taylor Swift holding up a flag that proclaimed Trump Won, Democrats Cheated! while being photographed on the 2024 Grammy Awards red carpet!

The REAL Politically Savvy : Thank you Taylor for the endorsement. 🇺🇸

Recommended : Did Taylor Swift Murder Fan In Illuminati Blood Ritual?!

 

Truth : Taylor Swift Did Not Show Trump Won Flag!

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

Fact #1 : Viral Video Was Edited

Let me start by pointing out that the viral video was edited, with the addition of the red-coloured “Trump Won, Democrats Cheated!” flag and two hands holding them up.

It may not be obvious to most people, but if you look carefully, you can see several obvious signs of digital manipulation:

  • The Trump Won flag does not ripple or flutter at all. The folds remains still throughout the video, even when Taylor Swift appears to move the flag.
  • Taylor Swift’s fingers does not even twitch or move at all, even when she appears to move the flag.
  • Taylor Swift’s left hand has a white outline – a photo editing (masking) artifact, which is most clearly seen at the end of the video, against the black background.
  • In the first two seconds of the video, you can see her left hand (in black gloves) appearing just under the flag. Brightening the image shows the right hand (in black gloves) appearing under the flag too.

It is therefore no surprise that the video has been labelled by X (formerly Twitter) as Manipulated media. However, X has apparently made no attempt to remove the obviously edited video from its platform.

Fact #2 : Taylor Swift Did Not Hold Trump Flag At 2024 Grammys

To be clear – Taylor Swift did not hold up, or show, any Trump Won, Democrats Cheated! flag at the 2024 Grammy Awards red carpet.

We know this to be true, because the original video that was posted by Variety on 4 February 2024, shows her standing for photos with her left hand on her waist.

Fact #4 : Taylor Swift Wore Black Evening Gloves

The original Variety video also showed Taylor Swift wearing long, black evening gloves. The edited video, on the other hand, showed naked fingers.

If you use an image editor to brighten the shadows, you can clearly see both of her hands in those black gloves appearing just under the red Trump Won flag.

But you don’t even need to do that – in the first two seconds of the edited video, you can see Taylor Swift’s left hand hold onto the fabric of her white dress.

Fact #4 : Taylor Swift Unlikely To Endorse Donald Trump

While Taylor Swift has yet to endorse any candidate for the upcoming 2024 Presidential election, it is very unlikely that she would ever endorse Donald Trump.

For one thing – Taylor Swift only endorsed Democrats so far. She endorsed Joe Biden in the 2020 election, and Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper in the 2018 midterm elections in Tennessee. Her 2018 post, in particular, made it clear her values did not align with those of the GOP.

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now.

Biden hired Bill Gates to flood Internet with AI censorship bots?!

Did Joe Biden hire Bill Gates and other billionaire technocrats to flood the Internet with AI censorship bots, ahead of the 2024 election?!

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

 

Claim : Biden Hires Bill Gates To Flood Internet With AI Censorship Bots!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims US President Joe Biden hired Bill Gates and other billionaire technocrats to flood the Internet with AI censorship bots ahead of the 2024 election!

Here is an excerpt from the long, and (intentionally?) rambling article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Biden Hires Bill Gates To Flood the Internet With ‘AI-Censorship Bots’

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Bill Gates For Murder?!

 

Biden Did Not Hire Bill Gates To Flood Internet With AI Censorship Bots!

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

Fact #1 : Bill Gates Doesn’t Even Have An AI Program!

Let me start by simply pointing out that it is impossible for Joe Biden to hire Bill Gates to floor the Internet with AI censorship bots, because Bill Gates doesn’t even have an AI program!

Bill Gates is a big proponent of artificial intelligence, and has made a number of investments in AI companies like Inflection AI and LikeWise. However, he does not actually own or run those AI companies.

As far as anyone can tell – Bill Gates does not have the power or resources to “flood the Internet with AI censorship bots”.

The People’s Voice certainly offered no evidence that Joe Biden hired Bill Gates, or any other billionaire, to flood the Internet with AI censorship bots.

Fact #2 : Report Doesn’t Even Mention Bill Gates!

The People’s Voice article is based on an “Interim Staff Report” (PDF) by the GOP Representative Jim Jordan’s Subcommittee on the Weaponization of Government under the House Judiciary Committee.

While the report mentions a number of tech luminaries like Elon Musk and Marc Andreesen, it does not even mention Bill Gates once as a person of interest in the issue!

So why on Earth would anyone claim that US President Joe Biden hired Bill Gates, when he was not even mentioned in the report as a person of interest?!

Bill Gates’ name only appeared in the notes on Page 10 as part of a title of an article written by Jonathan Turley.

Recommended : Was Oprah Just Exposed In Jeffrey Epstein Client List?!

Fact #3 : Report Doesn’t Claim AI Tools Were Deployed

Even though the Jim Jordan report claims or suggests that the National Science Foundation (NSF) is funding the development of AI tools, it doesn’t even claim that they were deployed, or ready to deploy, for the 2024 US presidential election.

So why would anyone claim that Bill Gates or any tech billionaire was hired by Joe Biden to use these AI tools, which are still under development, to censor people during the 2024 Presidential election???

Fact #4 : Report Doesn’t Claim Joe Biden Was Involved

Notably, the Jim Jordan report also does not directly claim that the Biden White House is involved in the NSF funding of those AI censorship tools.

It only said that senior White House officials berated social media companies into changing their content moderation policies.

Fact #5 : NSF Convergence Accelerator Was Launched Under Trump!

It would be quite impossible for anyone to blame Joe Biden for the development of these AI tools, because NSF Convergence Accelerator was established in 2019 – during the Trump Administration!

While the report focused on Track F, which launched in March 2021, the earlier Track B and Track D on AI technologies were initiated in 2019 and 2020 during the Trump Administration.

Did JAG Execute Assistant Defense Secretary Tanya Skeen?!

Did US Navy JAG just hang Assistant Defense Secretary Tanya Skeen for bribing Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy?!

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

 

Claim : JAG Executed Assistant Defense Secretary Tanya Skeen!

On 3 February 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that US Navy JAG just hanged Assistant Defense Secretary Tanya Skeen for bribing Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy!

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

JAG Hangs Asst. Defense Sec. Tanya Skeen

Recommended : Supreme Court Justice Arrested For Voting Against Trump?!

 

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

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

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

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

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

CACI Names Tanya M. Skeen as Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Development

Company Release – 11/13/2023

RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today that Tanya M. Skeen, former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition (Acting), has joined the company as Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Development. In this role, she will have a pivotal impact on the company’s growth by providing guidance and recommendations on investments to further advance CACI’s capabilities aimed at satisfying our customers’ future mission needs.

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

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

Real Raw News claimed that Tanya Skeen was executed after being found guilty of wiring $35 million to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s personal bank account. That’s just daft.

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

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

Recommended : Did US Special Forces Just Arrest Merrick Garland?!

Fact #3 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

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

They can investigate crimes, defend or prosecute service members accused of those crimes. But JAG officers cannot actually arrest anyone.

Fact #4 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #6 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

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

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

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

Did America sign WEF treaty to ration meat, electricity + gas?!

Did American leaders just sign a WEF treaty to ration meat, electricity and gas in America, to combat climate change?!

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

 

Claim : American Leaders Signed WEF Treaty To Ration Meat, Electricity + Gas!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that American leaders just signed a WEF treaty to ration meat, electricity and gas in America, to combat climate change!

Here is an excerpt from the long, and (intentionally?) rambling article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

American Leaders Sign WEF Treaty To Ration Meat, Electricity and Gas

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Klaus Schwab For Genocide?!

 

Truth : American Leaders Did Not Sign Any WEF Treaty To Ration Anything!

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

Fact #1 : America Did Not Sign Any WEF Treaty

Let me start by simply pointing out that America did not sign any WEF treaty, because there is no such thing.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a non-governmental organisation (NGO), and has no power over governments. It can lobby governments, but it cannot decide on their policies. It certainly did not create a treaty rationing meat, electricity or gas.

The WEF Head of Media Engagement, Vann Zopf described this claim as “fake”, and said that there is no such treaty by the World Economic Forum.

As usual, The People’s Voice offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim. Perhaps that’s why the article is so long and rambling – so it’s hard for you to make any sense of it at all!

Fact #2 : C40 Cities Group Is Run By Mayors

Interestingly, The People’s Voice article used a photo of US President Joe Biden, even though he has absolutely nothing to do with the C40 Cities group, which only involves those participating cities and their mayors.

Needless to say, the screenshot of Joe Biden allegedly posting on X (formerly Twitter) that “I’m fiercely loyal to @wef – our global government” is a complete fabrication.

Not only does Joe Biden have a grey (not blue) check mark, he never posted that tweet. If he did, it would have gone viral. Naturally, The People’s Voice offered no evidence that Joe Biden ever posted that tweet.

Fact #3 : C40 Cities Group Was Not Created By US Cities

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that US cities formed a coalition called the “C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group”. That’s not true.

According to the C40 Cities website, its genesis goes way back to 2005, when the Mayor of London at that time, Ken Livingstone convened representatives from 18 megacities to create the C20. Then in 2006, the C40 Steering Committee invited a further 22 mayors to join from the Global South, to create the C40 group.

Ultimately, the C40 Cities group comprises of cities from all over the world, as the official list and map shows.

Recommended : Was Oprah Just Exposed In Jeffrey Epstein Client List?!

Fact #4 : There Are No Mandatory C40 Cities Rules

The People’s Voice article also claimed that C40 Cities have pledged that their residents will comply with mandatory rules to reduce meat and dairy consumption to zero, limit purchase of new clothing items, eliminate car ownership, and allow every person only one short-haul return flight every 3 years.

That’s utter nonsense that’s based on the 2019 report by the University of Leeds, Arup and the C40 Cities organisation, called “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World“.

If you just skim through the entire report here, you can quickly see that there is no mandatory requirement. That’s because it’s just an analytical report that imagines what could happen if people did this or that. Nothing more.

As a C40 Cities spokesperson pointed out, it was just a report that provided “an analysis of consumption-based emissions in C40 cities“, and it was “not a plan for cities to adopt“.

The report calculates, for example, that if residents of C40 cities changed their eating habits to reach a “progressive target” of consuming 16 kg of meat, and 90 kg of dairy per person per year, then greenhouse-gas emissions from meat and dairy could be cut by 51% between 2017 and 2050 (pages 78-79).

Similarly, the report calculates that reducing car ownership, and increasing vehicle lifespans could cut emissions by 23% (pages 84-86). It never advocated banning private cars.

Why on Earth would people just make this up? Did they read the report? Or did their poor command of the English language led them to misunderstand what it said?

Fact #5 : C40 Cities Has Nothing To Do With WEF

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that the C40 Cities is somehow related to the WEF (World Economic Forum).

That is simply not true. The C40 Cities group is not affiliated with the WEF, and receives no funding from the World Economic Forum.

Truth : E. Jean Carroll Did Not Admit Lying To Help Biden Destroy Trump!

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

Fact #1 : E. Jean Carroll Did Not Admit Lying To Help Biden Destroy Trump!

This is really silly, but let me start by pointing out that E. Jean Carroll did not ever say that she was “100% lying” about being raped to help President Biden destroy Donald Trump, as alleged in The People’s Voice article.

If she really said that on CNN, it would have been major news covered by other news outlets in the United States, especially conservative news outlets like Fox News and OANN. It would also have gone viral on social media, with conservative and right-wing personalities criticising her for lying in a court of law.

However, there is no evidence E. Jean Carroll ever made such a confession, and The People’s Voice offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : E. Jean Carroll Won Two Defamation Lawsuits Against Trump

E. Jean Carroll (born Elizabeth Jean Carroll on 12 December 1943) has always said that Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in late 1995 or early 1996 in the Bergdorf Goodman store in New York City.

She confided in two friends, Lisa Bimbach and Carol Martin, shortly after the assault. She would later sue Donald Trump twice for defamation, winning twice. That would not be possible if E. Jean Carroll admitted lying about being raped or sexually assaulted by Donald Trump.

FDA Now Allows Experiments On People Without Consent?!

Does the FDA now allow medical experiments on people without their knowledge or informed consent?!

Take a look at the viral claim by US Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : FDA Now Allows Experiments On People Without Consent!

People are sharing a series of posts (here, here, here, and here) on X (formerly Twitter) by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who claimed or suggested that the FDA just issued a new ruling allowing clinical trials to be conducted on people without their knowledge or informed consent!

New FDA ruling exempts clinical trials with “minimal risk” from informed consent. That means that researchers can experiment on you without your knowledge or permission, so long as they claim that what they are testing is “safe.”

This is a direct violation of the Nuremberg Code.

Can you think of any therapy that all the experts agreed was perfectly safe, but turned out not to be?

This opens the door for testing of new “medicines” via the water supply or aerosolized spraying. It wouldn’t be the first time. To name one example of many, the U.S. army tested germ warfare dispersion in the NYC subway in 1966.

Recommended : Did FDA change law to allow medical research without consent?!

 

Truth : FDA Has Long Allowed Some Experiments On People Without Consent!

This is yet another example of MISINFORMATION created / spread by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Medical Research Without Consent Was Permitted Since 1991

Let me just start by pointing out that the the FDA has permitted “minimal risk” medical research without informed consent since 18 June 1991, when the Common Rule was issued (Federal Register archive PDF).

At that time, the Common Rule had four criteria for the waiver or alteration of informed consent for minimal risk research. It was then revised on 19 January 2017, to add a fifth criteria – “[i]f the research involves using identifiable private information or identifiable biospecimens, the research could not practicably be carried out without using such information or biospecimens in an identifiable format”.

So the claim by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. that it was a recent 21 December 2023 FDA ruling (PDF) called “Institutional Review Board Waiver or Alteration of Informed Consent for Minimal Risk Clinical Investigations” that exempts “minimal risk” clinical trials from informed consent is false.

This was specifically mentioned in Section III A. of the FDA ruling, so it is odd that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. would make such a claim.

Fact #2 : Final FDA Rule Has Strict Limits

The new FDA rule basically allows Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) to decide on the waiver or alteration of informed consent for “certain minimal risk clinical investigations”.

FDA is issuing this final rule to permit an IRB waiver or alteration of informed consent in limited circumstances, consistent with the Cures Act. We believe that this rule will both safeguard the rights, safety, and welfare of human subjects and enable minimal risk clinical investigations that may facilitate medical advances and promote public health.

To be clear – the FDA is not simply waiving the need for informed consent where researchers can simply “claim that what they are testing is safe“. Such medical research have to be approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB).

Recommended : Did FDA just admit Pfizer vaccine has Graphene Oxide?!

Fact #3 : Informed Consent Waiver Only Permitted For Minimal Risk

In addition, I should point out that IRBs are only allowed to grant or alter informed consent waivers for research that meet FDA’s definition of “minimal risk”:

“Minimal risk” means that the probability and magnitude of harm or discomfort anticipated in the research are not greater in and of themselves than those ordinarily encountered in daily life or during the performance of routine physical or psychological examinations or tests.

In short – the new FDA rule strictly limits the waiver or alteration of informed consent only to “minimal risk” research in which the subjects are not exposed to harm or discomfort that they would not normally experience in their daily life, or routine examinations.

It would therefore not be possible to get IRB approval for the “testing of new medicines via the water supply or aerolized spraying” as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. suggested.

Fact #4 : FDA Amended Its Rules To Comply With Law

The FDA isn’t simply creating this new rule for fun. It was more or less compelled to do so by the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act), which was was signed into law by President Barack Obama on 16 December 2016.

Amongst its provisions were Section 3024, which specifically amended sections 505(i)(4) and 520(g)(3) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 355(i)(4) and 360j(g)(3)) to “provide FDA with the authority to permit an exception from informed consent requirements when the proposed clinical testing poses no more than minimal risk to the human subject and includes appropriate safeguards to protect the rights, safety, and welfare of the human subject”.

In addition, Section 3023 of the Cures Act directs the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to “harmonize differences between the HHS Human Subject Regulations and the FDA Human Subject Regulations,” to the extent practicable and consistent with other statutory provisions.

In short – the US FDA was only issuing its final ruling based on the Cures Act, which was enacted by Congress and signed into law by President Obama.

Recommended : Did US FDA Just Ban Pfizer + Moderna Vaccines?!

Fact #5 : FDA Amendment Was Open For Public Comment

It is odd that concerned citizens like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. are only now complaining about the FDA rule amendment, when it was open for public comment years ago!

The FDA issued the proposed rule changes in the Federal Register of 15 November 2018, and asked the public to submit any electronic or written comments to the proposed rule changes by 15 January 2019.

In the end, the FDA received fewer than 50 comment letters from the academia, Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), public advocacy groups, industry, trade organizations, public health organizations, individuals, and other organizations.

Where were these concerned citizens when the FDA asked for their comments, before making its decision on the final rule?

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

A White Hat convoy carrying crates of rifles and spools of razor wire arrived in Eagle Pass, Texas, Friday afternoon to support the Texas National Guard in its regional border dispute with unlawful federal forces, a source in General Eric M. Smith’s office told Real Raw News.

Truth : Marines + Army Rangers Were Not Sent To Texas Border… Yet!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Everything posted by Real Raw News must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Fact #2 : Marines + Army Rangers Were Not Sent To Texas Border

This is really silly, but it has to be said – US Marines and Army Rangers were not sent to the Texas border to support Governor Greg Abbott’s refusal to comply with a recent US Supreme Court ruling, allowing US Border Patrol agents to remove razor wire placed on the Texas border.

Neither were any US Marine or Army Ranger instructed to wear the uniform of the Texas National Guard to “show solidarity”. That’s just utter nonsense.

Such an action would have been considered mutiny, and it would have been covered extensively by the US mainstream media, if not news organisations all over the world.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet reported such a shocking story? That’s because it never happened. It was all made up.

Fact #3 : Mutiny Carries A Death Penalty Sentence

The US military is subservient to the US civilian leadership, which is currently the Biden Administration under US President Joe Biden. Deploying military troops without a direct order by the Biden Administration would be mutiny under Article 94 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

Military personnel committing mutiny would be subject to a court martial, and those found guilty shall be punished by death or other alternative punishments that the court martial may decide.

Fact #4 : US Marine Generals Don’t Command Army Rangers

The Real Raw News writer does not appear to understand the basic concept of the military chain of command, or the fact that the United States has multiple uniformed services.

General Eric M. Smith is the 39th commandant of the US Marine Corps, which is just one of eight uniformed services in the United States. He only has command over the US Marine Corps, but not the other uniformed services like the Army, Navy, Air Force, etc.

In short – it is simply impossible for General Eric M. Smith to order US Army Rangers to do anything. The Rangers are part of the US Army, which is a completely different uniformed service.

Fact #4 : US Military Have Been Deployed To Help DHS

The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is the federal agency in charge of the border at Texas and other US states.

The US military have been deployed to the Texas border on several occasions by the civilian administration of the day – in 2018 under President Trump, and in 2023 under President Biden. However, they were always there to assist the CBP, with the CBP deciding on where those Marines were deployed, and how they could assist.

The Real Raw News, on the other hand, is claiming that US Marines and US Army Rangers were deployed to help the Texas National Guard fight against the CBP. That’s just utter nonsense. If any US Marines were to be deployed in 2024, it would certainly be to help the CBP, not to fight against them.

Everything posted by Real Raw News should be regarded as FAKE NEWS.

Did FDA change law to allow medical research without consent?!

Did the US FDA just quietly amend the 21st Century Cures Act to allow medical research without consent?!

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

 

Claim : FDA Changed Law To Allow Medical Research Without Consent!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the US FDA just quietly amended the 21st Century Cures Act to allow medical research without consent!

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

FDA Just Quietly, Deceitfully Changed Law To Allow ‘Medical Research Without Consent’

Recommended : Did FDA just admit Pfizer vaccine has Graphene Oxide?!

 

Truth : FDA Did Not Change Law To Allow Medical Research Without Consent!

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

Fact #1 : FDA Did Not Change Any Law

The People’s Voice article claimed that the US FDA just amended the 21st Century Cures Act to allow “medical research without consent” in certain situations. That’s simply not true, and is easily proven false.

All you have to do is read the FDA’s final ruling on the “Institutional Review Board Waiver or Alteration of Informed Consent for Minimal Risk Clinical Investigations“.

As the summary at the top explained, the FDA was amending its own regulations (not any law), to implement a provision of the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act).

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA, the Agency, or we) is issuing a final rule to amend its regulations to implement a provision of the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act).

The People’s Voice article provided the same link, so it is certainly aware of what it actually said.

Fact #2 : Congress Enacts Laws, Not Agencies

For the benefit of people who are not aware of how laws are enacted or amended in the United States, I should point out that Congress is the legislative branch of the US government.

Established by Article 1 of the US Constitution, the Legislative Branch consists of the House of Representatives, and the Senate. Together, they are known as the United States Congress.

Only the US Congress that has the power to enact and/or amend laws in the United States of America. Not the executive branch, or the judicial branch. Certainly not government agencies like the FDA, which fall under the executive branch.

Recommended : Did WHO Unveil Global Police Force With Arrest Powers?!

Fact #3 : Cures Act Permitted FDA Amendment In 2016

The 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act) was signed into law by then President Barack Obama on 16 December 2016.

Amongst its provisions were Section 3024, which specifically amended sections 505(i)(4) and 520(g)(3) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 355(i)(4) and 360j(g)(3)) to “provide FDA with the authority to permit an exception from informed consent requirements when the proposed clinical testing poses no more than minimal risk to the human subject and includes appropriate safeguards to protect the rights, safety, and welfare of the human subject”.

In addition, Section 3023 of the Cures Act directs the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to “harmonize differences between the HHS Human Subject Regulations and the FDA Human Subject Regulations,” to the extent practicable and consistent with other statutory provisions.

In short – the US FDA was only issuing its final ruling based on the Cures Act, which was enacted by Congress and signed into law by the President.

Fact #4 : Medical Research Without Consent Was Permitted Since 1991

What The People’s Voice article does not point out is that minimal risk medical research without informed consent has been permitted since 18 June 1991, when the Common Rule was issued (Federal Register archive PDF).

At that time, the Common Rule had four criteria for the waiver or alteration of informed consent for minimal risk research. It was revised on 19 January 2017, to add a fifth criteria – “[i]f the research involves using identifiable private information or identifiable biospecimens, the research could not practicably be carried out without using such information or biospecimens in an identifiable format”.

Recommended : Are Residual DNA In mRNA Vaccines Dangerous?!

Fact #5 : FDA Amendment Was Open For Public Comment

The People’s Voice article suggested that the FDA “quietly” made those amendments out of sight and public discourse. That’s simply not true.

The FDA issued the proposed rule changes in the Federal Register of 15 November 2018, and asked the public to submit any electronic or written comments to the proposed rule changes by 15 January 2019.

In the end, the FDA received fewer than 50 comment letters from the academia, Institutional Review Boards (IRBs), public advocacy groups, industry, trade organizations, public health organizations, individuals, and other organizations.

Fact #6 : Amendment Does Not Affect Informed Consent For Vaccinations

The People’s Voice article suggested that the removal of consent for minimal risk medical research may eventually spill over to allowing people to be injected without informed consent. That’s simply not true.

Not only was the FDA ruling an amendment of existing rules which have permitted minimal risk without informed consent since 1991, it has nothing to do with informed consent for medical treatments and/or vaccinations.

The FDA final ruling cannot be used to void the need for informed consent for any medical treatment and/or injections of drugs and vaccines. The People’s Voice article certainly offered no evidence to back up its claims or suggestions.

Fact #7 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

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

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

Did Alex Soros Call For Donald Trump To Be Assassinated?!

Did Alex Soros just publicly call for Donald Trump to be assassinated?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Alex Soros Called For Donald Trump To Be Assassinated!

People are claiming or suggesting Alex Soros, who took over the Open Society Foundation from his billionaire father, George Soros, just publicly called for Donald Trump to be assassinated!

The People’s Voice : Alex Soros openly called for the assassination of Donald Trump on Sunday, warning that the chance of Trump becoming president is too risky for the globalists to ignore.

Recommended : Did George Soros Just Suffer A Stroke At WEF 2024?!

 

Truth : Alex Soros Did Not Call For Donald Trump To Be Assassinated!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on X (formerly Twitter) and some websites, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Alex Soros Did Not Call For Trump Assassination

First, let me start by pointing out that Alex Soros never publicly called for Donald Trump to be assassinated. None of those claims are backed up by actual evidence.

There is ZERO evidence Alex Soros ever called for Donald Trump to be assassinated. Neither did The People’s Voice provided any evidence to back up its claim that Alex Soros said that “He’s too dangerous alive“,.

Fact #2 : Alex Soros Only Shared Article On Crime + Inflation

The whole premise behind these claims of a Trump assassination threat is based on a single tweet by Alex Soros, who shared an article by The Atlantic on the leading theories behind the crime and inflation crises.

Alex Soros never mentioned Donald Trump in his tweet. Neither did he attribute the article to Donald Trump, or suggested that it was somehow linked to him.

Last year, the crime and inflation crises largely evaporated. So did the leading theories about what had caused them.

To be clear – Alexander Soros did not write the article posted by The Atlantic. Neither did he select the photos used for that article.

Fact #3 : Those Were Stock Images

Right-wing conspiracy theorists are claiming that the bullet hole referred to an assassination attempt, with the hand holding out 47 dollars is a reference to Donald Trump being the future 47th President of the United States.

That’s completely bonkers because the two photos used in The Atlantic article are stock photos from Getty Images that have no relevance to Donald Trump, or assassinations.

The bullet hole photo (source) was taken on 1 July 2023, by New York Daily News, at the scene of a double shooting of an MTA bus in The Bronx, New York. An appropriate photo for an article on crime, don’t you think?

The photo of a hand holding $47 was taken by George Marks in the 1950s (source). I’m sure you will agree that it is an appropriate photo for inflation, and has nothing to do with Donald Trump.

Did WEF Order US Election To Be Nullified If Trump Wins?!

Did the WEF just order world leaders to nullify US election results if Donald Trump wins the 2024 presidential race?!

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

 

Claim : WEF Orders US Election To Be Nullified If Trump Wins!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the World Economic Forum (WEF) just ordered world leaders to nullify the US election results in Donald Trump wins the 2024 presidential race!

WEF Orders World Leaders To Nullify U.S. Election Results if Trump Wins

Recommended : Is Interpol Investigating Klaus Schwab For Genocide?!

 

Truth : WEF Did Not Order US Election To Be Nullified If Trump Wins!

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

Fact #1 : WEF Cannot Order World Leaders To Do Anything

First, let me just point out that the World Economic Forum is an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that focuses on public-private sector collaboration. It has no power over world leaders, beyond its lobbying and influencing efforts.

The WEF may be an influential lobbying organisation, but it cannot order world leaders to do anything.

Fact #2 : US Presidential Elections Cannot Be Nullified

The claim that other world leaders can nullify the US presidential election is so ludicrous, I cannot believe anyone is stupid enough to believe it. If that is even possible, Russia and China would have overturned the 2020 election in Trump’s favour!

The truth is – there is no way any world leader can nullify the US presidential elections. The 2024 US presidential election will be decided by the American people on Tuesday, November 5, 2024, who will elect a president and a vice president for the next four years.

Fact #3 : The Article Provided No Evidence

Despite its title and lede claiming that the WEF has ordered world leaders to nullify the US election results if Donald Trump wins, The People’s Voice provided no evidence to back up those claims.

In fact, the article itself quotes world leaders saying that they will need to prepare for a potential Trump presidency. That sounds like they are resigning themselves to the real possibility that Donald Trump may win the election – the complete opposite of nullifying the election results.

Colorado Judicial Department spokesperson Rob McCallum said that “there is no legitimacy” to the claims made in the article by Real Raw News.

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

Just to be clear – Colorado Supreme Court Justice Monica M. Marquez was not arrested for any reason, by the US Marines or any law enforcement officials.

Recommended : Did Australia Approve Mandatory Bill Gates mRNA Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : US Marines Cannot Arrest Civilians

The claim that US Marines were sent to arrest a civilian is absurd. For one thing, the military justice system is separate from the civilian justice system. The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Colorado Supreme Court Justice Monica Marquez.

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

On top of that – US Marines are not empowered to arrest even military personnel! If Justice Monica Marquez was hypothetically a serving member of the US Navy, she would have been arrested by US Navy Master-at-Arms and/or the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS), not the marines themselves.

If any civilian like Colorado Supreme Court Justice Monica Marquez is to be arrested, she would have been taken into custody by the Colorado state police, or the FBI, depending on the nature of the crime committed. US military members would never be involved in such arrests.

Joe Biden Caught Receiving Laundered Chinese Money?!

Was Joe Biden just caught receiving almost a quarter million dollars worth of laundered Chinese money?!

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

 

Claim : Joe Biden Caught Receiving Laundered Chinese Money!

People are sharing videos, articles, etc. that claim or suggest that US President Joe Biden just got caught receiving almost a quarter million dollars worth of laundered Chinese money!

Recommended : Did ICC Just Issue Arrest Warrant For Joe Biden?!

 

Still No Evidence Joe Biden Received Chinese Money!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / propagated by Republicans (and useful idiots) of the MAGA persuasion, as well as pro-Russia supporters (vatniks), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Joe Biden Has Not Been Referred For Impeachment

The Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, James Comer – a Republican from Kentucky, has publicly claimed TWICE that he has evidence of Joe Biden receiving Chinese money.

Yet, the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability has not yet referred President Joe Biden for impeachment proceedings, or call for a Special Council to prosecute him. What are they waiting for?

Fact #2 : There Was No Evidence Of Corruption

On both occasions, Comer only provided a scan copy of a personal cheque issued to Joe Biden by his brother, James Biden and James’ wife, Sara Biden, as “evidence” of corruption.

October 20, 2023 Press Release

House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) today announced the committee obtained bank records revealing a $200,000 direct payment from James and Sara Biden to Joe Biden in the form of a personal check.

November 1, 2023 Press Release

House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) today released a video and bank records memorandum revealing how Joe Biden received $40,000 in laundered China money from the account of his brother, James Biden, and his sister-in-law, Sara Biden, in the form of a personal check.

Neither personal cheques from his brother or his brother’s wife are actual evidence that President Joe Biden received “laundered Chinese money”. They are only evidence that Joe Biden received money from his brother, and his brother’s wife.

If that is the bar for evidence of corruption and/or receiving “laundered Chinese money”, then many of us who received money from our relatives are guilty of corruption and/or receiving laundered foreign money. That sounds stupid? Yes, that’s exactly how stupid the so-called “evidence” against Joe Biden really looks.

Recommended : Was Joe Biden Caught Groping Girl On Viral Video?

Fact #3 : Cheques Were For Personal Loan Repayment

The two cheques clearly stated that they were to pay Joe Biden for a (personal) loan. You know – the kind family members often give out to their brothers or sisters who are in financial trouble. The words “Loan repayment” was even stated clearly in the front of the two cheques.

I should point out that Comer was not able to prove that these were not loan repayment cheques. He only said he would view the $200,000 cheque as “troubling” even if it was for a loan repayment, because it came on the same day James Biden received $200,000 from a struggling health company he did business with.

Wow! Imagine that – it was “troubling” for Comer to see someone receive repayment for a personal loan he made out to his own brother, just because it appears that his brother received the money from a company he did business with.

Fact #4 : Joe Biden Loaned His Brother Money

James Comer also claimed that he did not “believe” that Joe Biden actually loaned his brother money.

When Democratic members of his committee and a lawyer for James Biden said that the committee has documents to prove that Joe Biden did indeed loan $200,000 to James Biden, Comer declared that the Democrats were “lying”, and said that “at the end of the day, there’s no document that shows there was a loan”.

CNN fact checker Daniel Dale revealed on 31 October 2023, that they were able to obtain the same banking records that Comer’s committee received, and they showed that President Joe Biden loaned his brother $200,000 less than two months prior to the James Biden “loan repayment” cheque for the same amount.

The banking records that both CNN and Comer’s committee had access to showed that Joe Biden sent a $200,000 wire transfer to James Biden on January 12, 2018. James Biden then issued the $200,000 loan repayment cheque on March 1, 2018.

The top Democrat on Comer’s committee, Rep. Jamie Raskin, even wrote to rebuke Comer, pointing out that there is “clear evidence that this transaction was a short-term, interest-free loan between brothers“.

[T]he bank records provided to the Committee clearly show that President Biden had $200,000 wired to his brother on January 12, 2018.

Despite this clear evidence that James Biden received a loan from his brother on January 12, 2018, and paid him back 48 days later with a check for the same amount marked ‘loan repayment,’ you continue to misrepresent the facts.”

In short – Comer’s committee appears to have documents showing that there was a loan from Joe Biden to James Biden, so the loan repayment was legitimate, and not actual evidence of corruption or money laundering.

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

Fact #5 : Joe Biden Was A Private Citizen At That Time

This may seem like a small point, but it is an important one to make. These personal loans and loan repayments between Joe Biden and his brother all occurred in 2017-2018.

At that time, Joe Biden was not President. Heck, he was not even a Presidential candidate – he did not announce his 2020 Presidential bid until April 25, 2019.

In other words – there is simply no question of Joe Biden abusing the power of his office (he had none at that time) to enrich himself with foreign money.

First, I should point out that the US house bill in question – H.R. 340 : Hamas and Other Palestinian Terrorist Groups International Financing Prevention Act (PDF), was actually introduced on January 12, 2023 (history).

Also known as the “Hamas International Financing Prevention Act“, H.R. 340 was introduced almost 9 months before the terrible October 7 attack.

In short – this bill had nothing to do with the October 7 attack of Israel by Hamas, but its passage was accelerated by the attack.

Fact #2 : Bill Only Passed US House Of Representatives

Next, I should point out that the bill is not yet law – it only passed in the US House of Representatives, with a 363-46 vote.

The bill now heads to the US Senate for its consideration. It is uncertain whether this bill would actually pass in the US Senate in its current form.

Even if it passes the US Senate, it must be signed into law by President Joe Biden, who has the power to veto it. GovTrack rates it as having only 37% chance in being enacted.

Until it is signed into law – no country or entity faces US sanctions through this bill.

Recommended : Is Hamas Keeping Jewish Children In Cages?!

Fact #3 : MSN Article Did Not State Malaysia Faces US Sanctions

The MSN article – which is actually an article by The Jerusalem Post, was shared in the viral warning as “evidence” that Malaysia faces US sanctions over it support of Hamas.

However, anyone who spends just a few minutes to read the article would quickly realise that Malaysia was never mentioned at all. In fact, the article did not mention that any country is at risk of being sanctioned by the US for supporting Hamas.

Fact #4 : Sanctions Are Only Imposed On Foreign Persons

The bill – in its current form – only requires the US President to impose sanctions on any “foreign person” that:

a) “assists in sponsoring”, or providing “significant financial, material, or technology support” or “goods and other services” to enable acts of terrorism; or

b) engages, directly or indirectly, in a significant transaction with a senior member of Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, the Lion’s Den, or their affiliates / successors.

However, HR340 leaves it to the President to determine which “foreign person” actually qualifies to be sanctioned. On top of that, the President can issue a waiver on a case-by-case basis.

Fact #5 : Only Limited Measures Are Imposed On Foreign States

The bill – in its current form – does not impose any sanctions on foreign states. It only imposes limited “measures” on foreign states that:

a) provides “significant material or financial support” for acts of terrorism; or

b) engages, directly or indirectly, in a significant transaction that contributes to the terrorist activities of Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, the Lion’s Den, or their affiliates / successors.

Again, HR340 leaves it to the President to determine which “foreign state” actually qualifies to be targeted, and the President can issue a waiver on a case-by-case basis.

Even if a foreign state is identified by the US President as materially supporting terroristic activities by Hamas, HR340 only requires:

  • the President to suspend US assistance to that foreign state for at least 1 year,
  • the Treasury Secretary to oppose and vote against any loan, financial assistance, or technical assistance by any international financial institution to that foreign state for a period of 1 year
  • the President to prohibit the export of American weapons to that foreign state

Again – the bill does not technically impose sanctions on foreign states, only limited measures or penalties.

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

Fact #6 : HR340 Is Unlikely To Impact Malaysia At All

Even if it passes the US Senate in its current form, and is signed into law by President Joe Biden, HR340 – the Hamas International Financing Prevention Act is unlikely to have any impact on Malaysia.

For one thing – the bill only targets foreign states that provide “significant material or financial support for acts of international terrorism”.

And even if Malaysia is somehow identified as such a country, the limited measures imposed by HR340 will have minimal impact, if at all.

According to the US Department of State, the US government only invests $1 million annually to train Malaysian military service members as part of its International Military Education and Training. The US also provided $220 million in security assistance for the FY2018-2022 – about $44 million per year.

Assuming everything remained the same, Malaysia would only stand to lose a total of $45 million per year in US assistance. That’s a drop in the bucket – 0.05% of Malaysia’s 2023 budget of about $84 billion.

Infowars Proven Wrong About Biden Face Mask Mandate!

Infowars has been proven wrong about its claims that the Biden Administration will introduce a face mask mandate in September 2023!

 

Claim : Biden Admin Will Order Face Mask Mandate!

People have been sharing an Infowars article which claimed that the Biden Administration will order a new face mask mandate for TSA and airport employees, followed by “full Covid lockdowns“. Here is an excerpt:

Biden Regime to Reinstate COVID-19 Restrictions Beginning with Mask Mandate as “COVID Cases Rise”, Say TSA and Border Patrol Whistleblowers

The Biden regime is preparing to reinstate full COVID-19 lockdowns, beginning with masking mandates for TSA and airport employees reportedly as early as mid-September, Infowars first to report.

Recommended : Is Biden Admin Bringing Back FULL COVID Restrictions?!

 

Infowars Proven Wrong About Biden Face Mask Mandate!

Infowars first claimed on August 18, 2023, that TSA and Border whistleblowers leaked information about a rollout of “full Covid restrictions”, which would include a face mask mandate in September, followed by full Covid lockdowns in December.

Well, it is now October 3, 2023, and there is nary a sight of any face mask mandate for TSA or airport employees in the United States. Infowars has been proven WRONG yet again.

Frankly, that’s hardly surprising. Alex Jones and/or Infowars never actually showed any evidence that the Biden Administration is planning to introduce a face mask mandate for air travel, much less full COVID-19 restrictions which would include lockdowns.

If you watch the video above, you can see that Alex Jones has a ton of paper on his table. Unfortunately, none of them were the leaked memorandum or policy documents from his TSA and Border Patrol whistleblowers.

Rather, they appear to be nothing more than printed copies of news articles! Alex Jones never showed any evidence of the “planned COVID-19 protocols” that were supposed to roll out in the middle of September 2023.

And it’s already October 2023, without a single TSA agent or Border Patrol officer required to wear a face mask in the United States.

Recommended : COVID-19 Vaccines Caused Stillbirth Surge In Singapore?!

I should point out that lockdowns are, frankly, no longer necessary because a combination of vaccines and prior infections have given people significant protection against COVID-19 infections.

Even though cases are spiking due to new variants (which are more adept at evading protection), hospitals and healthcare workers are no longer overloaded with COVID-19 patients. In fact, there has been multiple waves of new COVID-19 variants, but they have not necessitated new lockdowns.

That’s why the WHO itself declared on 5 May 2023 that COVID-19 as a whole is no longer a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Instead, COVID-19 is now considered “an established and ongoing health issue“.

Finally, I should also point out that any order for a face mask mandate on public transportation, including airlines, would be issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevent, not the TSA or Border Control.

It was the US CDC that issued the first and only face mask mandate for public transportation in the United States (PDF download) on January 29, 2021. The TSA and Border Control had nothing to do with that, but only issued their own directives to comply with the CDC order.

However, the CDC face mask mandate was made “unenforceable” by court order on April 18, 2022, and expired when the Biden Administration ended the COVID-19 public health emergency on May 11, 2023.

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

If the CDC ever issues another face mask mandate, it seems inevitable that it would be challenged in court, and made “unenforceable” by another court order. So what really is this panic over a “future” face mask mandate?

I should also point out that, long before the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers all over the world have had no issues wearing face masks to protect themselves and their patients. Seriously, stop being such a wuss.

Did Michelle Obama Release Photos Of Herself Pregnant?!

Did Michelle Obama just release photos of herself pregnant, to prove that she is a real woman?!

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

Updated @ 2023-10-01 : Added fact check video
Originally posted @ 2023-09-30

 

Claim : Michelle Obama Released Photos Of Herself Pregnant!

People are sharing photos that they claim were taken when Michelle Obama was pregnant, to prove that she is a real woman.

Charlotte, The Baroness : BREAKING: Michelle Obama silences ALL conspiracy theorists and demands a universal apology after FINALLY releasing glowing pregnancy photos when she was expecting Sasha and Malia.

Was_it_Planned : You can fake the baby bump. We need 3 independent DNA samples analyzed to prove man or women.

The rest is smoke and mirrors. I think she’s a he! While you’re at it, DNA test the kids to verify birth parents are Obama’s.

Ultra Maga Tx Teresa 🇺🇸 : 😂🤣😆😂 we know you’re a dude & we’ve seen their real parents. 🤡🤡

Recommended : Did Michelle Obama Call Women “Womxn”?!

 

Truth : Those Are Not Photos Of A Pregnant Michelle Obama!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created about Barack and Michelle Obama, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Michelle Obama Never Released Photos Of Herself Pregnant

First, let me just point out that Michelle Obama has never released photos of herself while pregnant with Sasha or Malia.

That’s not to say they don’t exist. It is likely that they exist – they were simply not made available to us – members of the public.

Perhaps she’s just like many of us who don’t share private photos on social media. Perhaps she did not want to “jinx” her pregnancies.

After all, Michelle and Barack Obama had trouble getting pregnant, and she suffered a miscarriage. They ultimately conceived Malia and Sasha through in-vitro fertilisation (IVF).

Fact #2 : The Photos Were AI-Generated

I took a look at all four photos and quickly determined that they were AI-generated, and rather poor examples at that.

The first two are better examples, but if you look closely, you can see that her hands are grossly distorted. She not only has at least six fingers on each hand, they are of wrong lengths and with nails in the wrong position.

Recommended : Jho Low Paid $20 Million For Photo With The Obamas!

These two examples are terrible. The example on the left does not even look like Michelle Obama. Perhaps a young Oprah Winfrey? Of course, Oprah never had children…

The one on the right looks more like Michelle Obama but had grossly exaggerated features, including a hump neck. But the easiest way to identify it as an AI-generated fake photo is by looking at her hands.

As you can see, both examples have distorted hands. In the example on the left, the fingers of both hands appear to merge together. In the example of the right, her left hand has six unnaturally long fingers, while her right hand has a ridiculously long thumb.

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

Fact #3 : Online Tools Confirmed Images Were AI-Generated

Just in case you don’t trust my Mark 1 eyeballs, or my common sense, you will be glad to know that two online tools used to detect AI-generated photos – AI or Not, and Illuminarty, have confirmed all four photos were generated using AI image generators.

Fact #4 : Michelle Obama Was Born A Woman

There is no need for Michelle Obama to release any photos of herself pregnant to prove that she is a woman.

Even if you ignore the fact that she gave birth to two girls, Michelle Obama grew up as a female. Her family and friends only knew her as a girl and then, a woman. Never as a boy or a man who later became transgender.

Michelle Obama sometimes shares photos of her childhood on her Instagram account. They are all proof that she grew up as a girl, never as a boy.

On the other hand, all these claims that she was born a boy has never been backed by any evidence.

Read more : Do Photos Prove Michelle Obama Is Transgender?!

Fact #5 : Michelle Obama Gave Birth To Two Girls

Claims that Michelle Obama was born a man is not only false, it’s absurdly ridiculous, because she gave birth to two girls – Malia Obama and Sasha Obama.

For those who are wondering – transgender women cannot give birth, or suffer miscarriages, as they were born men, and lack both ovaries and uterus. And no, Malia and Sasha Obama were not adopted

Ultimately, these fake photos, and claims about Michelle Obama being transgender, are just attempts by misogynists and Republicans of the MAGA persuasion to disparage Barack and Michelle Obama.

As the 2024 US Presidential Election draws close, you can expect more rumours of Michelle Obama joining the race, and even more fake news and photos about her.

Did Canadians Protest Trudeau + Zelensky At Royal York Hotel?!

Did large crowds of Canadians protest Trudeau and Zelensky at the Royal York Hotel, forcing them to run away?!

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

 

Claim : Major Canadian Protest Of Trudeau + Zelensky!

People are sharing a video showing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy leaving the Royal York Hotel, claiming that they were hounded by protestors who chased them away with insults:

Circulating on WhatsApp : BIG BREAKING NEWS – PM Justin Trudeau and Ukraine PM Zelensky had to run away from Royal York Hotel after massive crowd of Canadians greeted & chased them with “F*ck You, F*ck You, Get out of our country” slogans🔥🔥 This is a historic insult to the PM of any country in the history of this world. These 🐖s deserve it.

Truth : Canadian Protest Of Trudeau + Zelensky Was Small

Let’s take a look at what went on before and during the viral video…

Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded On 22 September 2023

The video appears to be recorded by Dacey Media on Friday night, 22 September 2023, just outside the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.

Fact #2 : There Was Only One Guy With A Megaphone

While it may sound like many people were protesting Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, and/or Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, there does not appear to be many protestors.

The video actually shows a single person shouting using a megaphone. Perhaps 2-3 other protestors could be seen in the video. The other people standing around them appear to be bystanders, or just people walking past.

Recommended : Is Ukraine Investigating Zelenskyy For High Treason?!

Fact #3 : Most Canadians Were There To Greet Zelenskyy

According to Toronto Sun reporter, Joe Warmington, most people who gathered outside the Fairmont Royal York hotel were there to greet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

It was Zelensky, donned in his famous green battle fatigues, that the crowd was most excited to catch a glimpse of. And he didn’t disappoint.

The crowd clearly appreciated seeing Zelenskyy as well and could be heard chanting “stand with Ukraine.”

In the viral video, you can see that most people were holding their smartphones up to take photos or videos of Volodymyr Zelenskyy as he came out.

Recommended : Are Ukrainians Spending Western Money On Parties?!

Fact #4 : There Were Only A Few Protestors

He also shared that there was a group of anti-Trudeau protestors:

The Prime Minister also waved at onlookers and soaked up applause from the crowd — many tourists in for the weekend — while ignoring the taunts from a couple of dozen anti-Trudeau protesters.

The photo he took that day though only shows a few anti-Trudeau protestors.

Recommended : Did CNN Hide Video Of Ukraine Attacking Donetsk?!

Fact #5 : Zelenskyy Was Attending Round Table Discussion

While it has been claimed that Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau was meeting Ukrainian President Zelenskyy at the Royal York Hotel, or vice versa, that was not exactly the case.

Zelenskyy was at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel to take part in a roundtable discussion with Canadian business leaders at 6:30 PM. Justin Trudeau attended the roundtable with Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland.

Fact #6 : They Were Leaving For A Rally At Fort York

Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau did not flee the hotel because of a protest. Neither did Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Zelenskyy left the Royal York Hotel with Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland to attend a reception and rally at Fort York at 8:30 PM.

As this photo shows, many people were obviously very enthusiastic about meeting the Ukrainian leader at the Fort York event.

Recommended : Did Mossad Just Admit NATO Is Losing Ukraine War?!

Fact #7 : Canadians Enjoy Free Speech

This may come across as peculiar to people in China and Russia, but Canadians enjoy the freedom of expression, which includes the right to protest peacefully.

If you look at the video, you will see police officers standing nearby to ensure that everything stayed peaceful. They were not there to block or prevent the protest or heckling. They were also not there to arrest the protestors.

Would a similar protest be possible in Russia or China? Can you imagine Russians heckling Vladimir Putin, without getting arrested by the police? Can you imagine Chinese netizens freely shouting similar insults at Xi Jinping? Of course, not.

The very fact that Canadians can shout insults at their own Prime Minister without fear, with the Prime Minister and the Canadian police ignoring all of that, is testament to the freedom of speech in Canada.

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

Did Russian President Vladimir Putin threaten to release secret satellite evidence of US government’s involvement in the 9/11 attacks?!

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

Updated @ 2023-09-21 : Added new information on the Pravda article, and the Russian satellite.
Originally posted @ 2022-03-11

 

Claim : Putin Threatened To Release 9/11 Satellite Evidence!

People are sharing a long message which claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to release secret satellite evidence of US government involvement in the 9/11 attacks!

They appear to believe that Putin issued this threat in retaliation for US sanctions against Russia, and military assistance to Ukraine. It’s a long post, so please skip to the next section for the facts…

Putin is going to hit once, but he’s going to hit hard. Russia is preparing the release of evidence of the involvement of the US government and intelligence services in the September 11 attacks. The list of evidence includes satellite images.

Recommended : Did US Send Nuclear AEGIS Missiles To Ukraine?!

 

Truth : Putin Did Not Threaten To Release 9/11 Satellite Evidence!

This is yet another example of pro-Russia FAKE NEWS that are spamming social media, as well as WhatsApp and Telegram groups. Here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pravda Article Was Posted In February 2015

The Pravda article (translated archive | original Russian) was actually posted on 7 February 2015, and updated on 10 February 2015. This was specifically mentioned in the 2015 examples :

VT Editor’s note:  Russian satellite evidence proving the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center using “special weapons” was reviewed by a VT editor while in Moscow.

The article below was forwarded to us for publication in the US and translated from Russian. It is 3 days old, published on February 7, 2015.

The fake news creators removed that section, to mislead you into thinking that this was a new threat by Putin in 2022 and 2023.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Putin Threatened To Release 9/11 Satellite Photos

Even though the viral post is based on a Pravda article, there never was any evidence that Vladimir Putin himself actually threatened to release satellite photos, or evidence of any 9/11 conspiracy.

The Pravda article itself did not make that claim. It only claimed that Russia is “preparing” to release evidence of the involvement of the US government and intelligence services in the 9/11 attacks.

Fact #3 : Russia Did Not Release Any Evidence Of 9/11 Conspiracy

If the Pravda article is true, then Russia is taking an extraordinarily long time to release evidence of a 9/11 conspiracy by the US government and intelligence services.

Despite preparing for over 8.5 years – since February 2015 – the Russian government has never released any evidence of any conspiracy by the US government in the September 11 attacks.

No satellite imagery… no photos… no documents… no evidence in any form or manner. Why not? Does it take that long to develop and digitise the photos from Russian satellites?

Recommended : Did NATO Promise Russia Never To Expand East?!

Fact #3 : Russian Satellites Were Terrible In 2001

It would also be quite a feat for Russia to provide “conclusive satellite imagery” as the Pravda article alleges, as Russian electro-optical satellites were not quite “state-of-the-art” in 2001, and that’s being generous.

At that time, they used the Yantar-4K2 (Cobalt / Kobalt) satellite – a slightly improved version of the Yantar-4KS1M (Neman / Неман) satellite, which had a resolution of just under a meter using the Zhemchug-18 camera.

These satellites have a limited lifespan of just 26 to 32 weeks, and used film which could be returned using two small canisters mid-mission, and a larger reentry module at the end.

Russia only had one in operation at that time – (Космос 2377) Cosmos 2377, which was launched on 29 May 2001, and dropped out of orbit on 10 October 2001.

Cosmos 2377 could plausibly have taken photos of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, but the images was likely only as good as the Maxar IKONOS commercial imaging satellite.

Note that the Kobalt satellite is different from the Kobalt-M (Yantar-4K2M) satellite, which features upgraded optics with reported image resolution of 30 cm (0.3m), and a modernised platform. The first Kobalt-M satellite was launched on 24 September 2004.

Fact #4 : There Are Many Satellite Images Of 9/11 Attack

There is no real need for the Russians to share their satellite photos, because there are many publicly-available satellite photos on the September 11 attacks.

The private satellite imaging company, Maxar, for example, shared this high-resolution photo of ground zero at the World Trade Center on 15 September, 2001.

Taken by IKONOS, which had a resolution of 0.82 to 1 metre, it gives you a good idea of the image quality and resolution that are already available for free to the public. So it begs the question – do the Russians really have better images than that?

Recommended : Did Russia Capture US General Roger Cloutier In Azovstal?!

Fact #5 : Satellites Have Limitations

Despite being extremely useful, imaging satellites not magical instruments. They have limitations in what they can and cannot do.

For example, they have to generally stay in a pre-determined orbit, and “fly through” an area – leaving large gaps during which there is no coverage.

They also cannot look inside or under solid objects – planes, buildings, trees; and their view can be obscured by smoke and clouds, unless they have multi-spectral ability.

You can see how the smoke obscures the picture in this Maxar image taken of the Manhattan financial district on September 11, 2001.

It is therefore highly improbable that any satellite image from way up high would have captured “incriminating evidence” of the US government’s involvement in the September 11 attacks.

Recommended : Are Nazis From Japan Fighting For Ukraine?!

Fact #6 : 9/11 Attack Was Committed By Al Qaeda

In the past 22 years, the many conspiracy theories have all been repeatedly looked into and debunked.

We now know, with absolute certainty, that the September 11 attacks were conceived by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, approved by Osama bin Laden, and carried out by nineteen Al Qaeda terrorists.

There was no US government involvement in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Osama bin Laden himself claimed responsibility for the 9/11 attacks on several occasions. You don’t need a satellite to know that.

Joe Biden Fell Asleep At Maui Fire Victim Event?!

Did US President Joe Biden fall asleep during a meeting with victims of the 2023 Maui wildfires?!

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

 

Claim : Joe Biden Fell Asleep While Meeting Maui Fire Victims!

People are sharing a low resolution video, claiming that it shows US President Joe Biden falling asleep during a meeting with victims of the 2023 Maui wildfires!

Sean Hannity : Biden appears to fall asleep during a ceremony in Hawaii honoring the hundreds of Americans killed by the fires

Impeach this child sniffing corrupted criminal NOW.

Recommended : Is Biden Admin Bringing Back FULL COVID Restrictions?!

 

Truth : Joe Biden Did Not Fall Asleep While Meeting Maui Fire Victims!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS about Joe Biden, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Joe Biden Was At Lahaina Community Engagement Event

First, let me start by giving you some context on what’s going on.

In early August 2023, a number of wildfires broke out on the island of Maui, in the US state of Hawaii. That culminated in a massive wildfire that devastated the town of Lahaina on August 8, 2023.

The entire town of Lahaina was destroyed, with the damage estimated at $6 billion. Even worse – at least 114 people were confirmed killed in and around Lahaina, as of August 22.

On August 21, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden arrived at Kahului Airport to visit the disaster sites. One of the stops was the Lahaina Civic Center, where President Biden met residents and gave a speech.

Fact #2 : Joe Biden Was Not Asleep

The viral video shows President Joe Biden sitting down, and nodding off, during that community engagement event at the Lahaina Civic Center.

The truth is – Joe Biden wasn’t nodding off. He was bowing his head, possibly in prayer. The viral video was edited to show him “nodding off”, and posted in low-resolution, so you can’t see that he actually had his eyes open.

In the higher resolution video posted by C-SPAN, you can see Joe Biden looking at the speaker, and cough, before bowing his head, and then nodding in agreement with the speaker. You can also see that his eyes were open even though his head remained bowed.

Joe Biden then looked up when the speaker spoke about the homes of his son, his daughter, and his parents, burning down. He then clapped with everyone else when the speaker said that “Lahaina is a town not for sale”.

Fact #3 : White House Confirmed It’s Fake News

When the Biden Administration was asked about the viral video, White House spokesperson Andrew Bates replied:

It’s unfortunate they feel the need to lie. Instead, they should join him in supporting the people of Maui.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Fake News About Joe Biden

This is just ultimately just another example of political fake news to smear Joe Biden, and here are other examples:

Joe Biden Confused + Stuttering In Viral Interview?!

Was Joe Biden confused and stuttering in a viral MSNBC interview with Nicolle Wallace?!

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

 

Claim : Joe Biden Was Confused + Stuttering In Viral Interview!

People are sharing a video of US President Joe Biden looking and sounding confused during an MSNBC interview. It has gone viral in MAGA groups, and is being promoted by pro-Russian and pro-CCP groups, as well as the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) .

OMG! President Of The United States? 🤦🏻‍♂️🫣🤣🤣

What’s wrong with him? What’s he rumbling about? 🤔😥🤦🏻‍♂️

Recommended : Did Morgan Freeman Just Call Joe Biden A Fool?!

 

Truth : Joe Biden Was Not Confused / Stuttering In Viral Interview!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS about Joe Biden, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Joe Biden Interview Aired On June 30, 2023

First, let me just point out that Nicolle Wallace from MSNBC interviewed Joe Biden in the viral interview on June 30, 2023. You can watch the full MSNBC interview here.

During that interview, Nicolle Wallace asked President Biden about the US Supreme Court’s ruling on affirmative action, as well as his administration’s foreign policy and other plans.

Fact #2 : Viral Video Was Fabricated

While the MSNBC interview did occur, the viral Joe Biden interview that has been circulating in MAGA, pro-CCP and pro-Russian groups is a complete fabrication.

President Joe Biden never spoke like that in the MSNBC interview. The original MSNBC interview proves that beyond doubt.

Fact #3 : Viral Video Was Likely A Deep Fake Video

The viral video appears to have modified using AI deep fake technology to change how and what Joe Biden said in the viral video. It does not appear to be done by editing and splicing parts of the interview.

For one thing, some of the words he said in the viral video do not appear in the original video. The background in the viral video also appear consistent even when Joe Biden was stuttering in the viral video.

All that suggest that AI deep fake technology was used to change what Joe Biden said in the viral interview video, and how he said it.

Fact #4 : No Mainstream Media Reported This

If President Joe Biden really looked and sounded confused, or stuttered repeatedly during the MSNBC interview, it would have been international news, not just limited to the United States.

All of the mainstream media would have covered it. Even if they didn’t, you can count on right-wing news outlets like Fox News, Newsmax, or One America News Network, to cover his confusion and stuttering 24/7.

Yet, not a single mainstream media outlet reported on this major embarrassment for President Joe Biden? That’s because it never happened.

Fact #5 : This Is Just Fake News About Joe Biden

This is just ultimately just another example of political fake news to smear Joe Biden, and here are other examples:

Did Donald Trump Praise China In 2024 Campaign Speech?!

Did Donald Trump just praise China in his 2024 presidential campaign speech?! Find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Donald Trump Praised China In 2024 Campaign Speech!

Pro-CCP netizens and the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) are sharing this message on WhatsApp and social media, which claims that Donald Trump just praised China in his 2024 presidential campaign speech.

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

😂😂😂 Trump put it well as a political speech. He may win the presidency election in 2024, knowing America have many crazy people, especially Republicans in middle of USA!

Truth : Donald Trump Praised China In 2024 Campaign Speech!

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

Fact #1 : This Message First Appeared In Jan. 2022

This viral message does not appear to be new. The first example appeared in a Singapore forum on 19 January 2022, and appears to be a copy and paste of a WhatsApp / social media post.

The message then went viral in August 2023, after the website inf.news reposted it verbatim, with the title Look what Trump thinks of China.

Fact #2 : Trump Only Announced 2024 Presidential Bid In Nov 2022

It is impossible for that speech to be Trump’s presidential campaign speech in January 2022, when Donald Trump only announced his 2024 presidential campaign on 16 November 2022 – 9 months later.

Fact #3 : That Was Not A Donald Trump Speech

Anyone who has ever seen Donald Trump speak would immediately know that he never speaks like that in any speech. Even without looking up the speech online, it is already obvious that the viral Donald Trump speech praising China is fake.

But a quick check online confirmed that that speech was never written or uttered by Donald Trump, whether in 2022, or in 2023.

Fact #4 : There Is A Lot Of Odd Phrasing

There is a lot of odd phrasing in the fake Donald Trump speech that suggest that it was really written by a Chinese native, and not a Chinese person who grew up in the US, Singapore, or even Malaysia.

I am your next president, please support me, we will be honorable and independent, whoever has the money will do business with whom, and we will live a good life.

The Chinese people are rich in Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen. New York, which is about to catch up with ours, is going to get divorced and scrambled.

What’s even more annoying is that basically no terrorist activities dare to carry out in China.

Fact #5 : Donald Trump Would Never Call America Bad

Regardless of what we may think of Donald Trump, he would never call America bad. He is, after all, running to be US President again!

Vote for me, only I can save this bad America!

It would be incredibly stupid to call America bad. In fact, it would have been a political scandal, with his Republican rivals and the Democrats criticising him for being unpatriotic.

Fact #6 : Donald Trump Started Trade War With China

It is also rather absurd to claim that Donald Trump would praise China, when he was the one who initiated a trade war with China.

As US President, Donald Trump ordered the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) to investigate Chinese economic practices in August 2017.

When the USTR report was released in March 2018, Trump ordered the imposition of tariffs on Chinese products, filed a WTO case against China, and imposed restrictions on Chinese investments in US high-tech sectors.

Did These Famous People Mock God And Die?!

Did these eight famous people mock God, and consequently died early?!

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

 

Did These Famous People Mock God And Die?!

This story has not only been posted on many websites, it has been repeatedly shared on social media and even WhatsApp and Telegram.

The stories have a variety of names – “Famous People Who Mocked God And Died Untimely“, “Untimely Deaths Of Famous People Who Mocked God“, or just “8 in 8‘, whatever that meant!

The story is very long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS? I SURE DIDN’T TILL NOW

Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death!

Make a personal reflection about this…… Very interesting, read until the end……

It is written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7):

 

Truth : These Famous People Did NOT Mock God And Die!

This is yet another example of religious FAKE NEWS created to warn people that the Christian God is vengeful and will kill those who mock him.

The good news is – nothing in the viral story is true, and here is a TLDR summary of the reasons why…

John Lennon

  • The interview was conducted by the London Evening Standard, not a US magazine as claimed.
  • He was killed 14 years after making that statement, not immediately as claimed.
  • He was shot 4 times, not 6 times as claimed.

Tancredo Neves

  • Tancredo Neves never made such a claim.
  • He was also a religious Catholic, and very unlikely to ever mock God.
  • To become President, he only needed a majority vote from 686 members of the Electoral College, not 500,000 votes.
  • He did not get sick and die just one day before becoming President.

Cazuza

  • Cazuza died from AIDS-related complications, not lung cancer.
  • There is no evidence he ever mocked God.
  • He did not smoke during his Canecão concert in 1998.

The Man Who Built The Titanic

  • None of the men associated with the financing, design or construction of the Titanic ever claimed that “Not even God can sink it”.
  • The comment was most likely made by a deck hand to Sylvia Caldwell, a second class passenger on the Titanic.

Marilyn Monroe

  • Marilyn Monroe never met or spoke to Billy Graham in her entire life.
  • As a practising Jew, it would have been correct for her to say that she did not need Jesus.
  • She never told anyone, preacher or not, that “I don’t need your Jesus”.

Bon Scott

  • The song “Highway To Hell” did not mock God, or any religion.
  • Marilyn MansonLazlo BaneMaroon 5Bruce Springsteen and even Billy Joel covered the song, but did not die early deaths.
  • Millions of people sang the same song, but did not die early deaths.

2005 Campinas Car Accident

This is a truly preposterous story that does not appear to be true because…

  • Why would a mother let her daughter get into a car of obviously drunk teens?
  • Why would teens have a crate of eggs in the trunk of their car?
  • If the trunk survived the accident, it would have allowed for easy identification of the car.

Christine Hewitt

  • There is no evidence she ever criticised the Bible.
  • She was shot dead, not burned to death as claimed.
  • Her body was burned to destroy evidence and/or to cover up the act of murder.
  • Her husband and his brother were charged with her murder.

John Lennon Mocked Religion, Not God

The John Lennon quote was somewhat inaccurate. He never mocked God, he only mocked Christianity, saying:

Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue with that; I’m right and I will be proved right.

We’re more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first — rock and roll or Christianity.

Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.

More importantly, that interview was NOT conducted by a US magazine, but with Maureen Cleave from the London Evening Standard.

When it was first published in the London Evening Standard in March 1966, there was no outcry. It was only when Datebook, a US teen magazine printed the same quote five months later, that protests broke out in the United States.

Even so, it took fourteen years after that statement for a born-again Christian called Mark David Chapman to kill John Lennon.

But he didn’t shoot Lennon six times (as claimed). He shot 5 times at John Lennon, hitting him 4 times.

Was Mark David Chapman God’s avenging hand? If so, then it’s obvious that God believes that revenge is a dish best served cold.

 

Tancredo Neves Did Not Mock God

There is no evidence that Tancredo Neves ever made such a claim. It would have been out-of-character to mock God, since he was a religious Catholic by all accounts.

Catholic priest and historian, José Oscar Beozzo, said of him – “Tancredo was a profoundly religious man” (Source : Evangelical Christianity and Democracy in Latin America, Page 176).

The Archbishop of São Paulo at that time, Cardinal Paulo Evaristo Arns, said,

He was loved by the people and is being very much missed. He was also a personal friend and a good Catholic. I was at his side when he died.

Tancredo Neves also did not need 500,000 votes from his party, because the Electoral College that elected him as President only had 686 members.

Tancredo won 480 (70%) of the Electoral College votes. 480 votes, ladies and gentlemen, not 500,000 votes.

Finally, Tancredo Neves did not die a day before being made President. He fell sick much earlier, complaining of abdominal pains, and was admitted to the hospital a day before his inauguration on March 15, 1985.

He died on April 21, 1985 after undergoing 7 surgeries in 38 days (Source : The Accidental President of Brazil: A Memoir, Page 160).

 

Cazuza Did Not Mock God

Cazuza, whose real name is Agenor Miranda Araújo Neto, did indeed die at the age of 32. However, he died from AIDS-related complications, not lung cancer as the hoax claims.

There was also no evidence Cazuza ever mocked God, specifically “while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said ‘God, that’s for you.’ during a show in Canecio [sic] (Rio de Janeiro)”.

Despite extensive searches, I have not come across a direct testimony by a fan who attended the concert, that Cazuza actually mocked God in that manner, much less actual published articles on that act.

In fact, I located the only video I have ever seen of a full concert at the Canecão in 1998 on YouTube. In that video, Cazuza never smoked a cigarette during the entire concert, much less mocked God with cigarette smoke.

You have to wonder how the writer of this hoax knew about this, when it is virtually impossible to prove this act ever took place in this age of Google and YouTube.

 

The Men Who Built Titanic Did Not Mock God

The writer of this hoax cannot even name “the man who built the Titanic“, and claimed that “Not even God can sink it“. That’s because there is no such person.

First of all, the Titanic was not built or even paid for by any individual. It was built by Harland and Wolff, a shipbuilding company from Belfast, Ireland for the White Star Line, a shipping company.

Neither J. P. Morgan (whose holding company financed its construction), nor Joseph Bruce Ismay (the chairman of White Star Line) ever made such a claim to a reporter. The same is true for Thomas Andrews, the naval architect who designed the Titanic.

Which of these 3 men built the RMS Titanic? L to R : J. Bruce Ismay, J. P. Morgan, Thomas Andrews

The claim that “Not even God can sink it” was purportedly made by a deck hand to Sylvia Caldwell, a second class passenger on the Titanic :

After we came aboard the Titanic we were watching deck hands carrying up baggage I said to one “Is this ship really unsinkable?”

He answered “Yes, lady, God himself could not sink this ship.”

White Star Line, and its parent company, International Mercantile Marine, did make claims that the Titanic was practically unsinkable (due to its watertight compartments), but at no point did any of their representatives claim that “Not even God can sink it“.

Marilyn Monroe Did Not Mock God

The claim that Marilyn Monroe was visited by Billy Graham just a week before she was found dead is categorically untrue.

As one of the most famous celebrities during her time, she was closely followed by fans and the press. So we know with certainty that Marilyn Monroe never met Billy Graham in her entire life.

Billy Graham also did not preach to Marilyn Monroe, or even had a conversation with her… ever.

According to a spokesperson for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, “there was no discussion between Marilyn Monroe and Billy Graham”. Therefore, we can safely say that this claim is utter nonsense.

Interestingly, Marilyn Monroe was a Christian who converted to Judaism in 1956, 6 years before she tragically died.

But whether she was a Christian or a Jew, she prayed to the same God, and it appeared that she took her religion rather seriously. At least, according to her rabbi, Robert Goldburg :

“She indicated that she was impressed with the rationalism of Judaism, its ethical and prophetic ideals and its concept of close family life,” wrote the Reform rabbi.

“Marilyn was not an intellectual person but she was sincere in her desire to learn. It was also clear that her ability to concentrate over a long period of time was limited.

However I did feel that she understood and accepted the basic principles of Judaism.”

Even after her divorce from her Jewish husband, Arthur Miller, Marilyn told Goldburg that she “remained committed to Judaism”.

Even if Marilyn Monroe did say that she did not need Jesus, that would not be an insult, but the correct belief of a practising Jew.

God would certainly not kill her for not accepting a prophet that was not part of her faith. Or would he?

 

Bon Scott Did Not Mock God

AC/DC released their hit single “Highway To Hell” in 1979, and yes, Bon Scott died six months later at the back of his friend’s car.

It was said that Bon Scott choked on his own vomit, after passing out from a night of heavy drinking. That is certainly a possibility when someone’s totally wasted.

However, his official cause of death was “acute alcohol poisoning“.

More importantly though, Highway To Hell became one of the most famous songs in the world. Millions of their fans sang the same song, and many more still do today.

Many other singers also covered the song, including Marilyn Manson, Lazlo Bane, Maroon 5, Bruce Springsteen and even Billy Joel. Yet, they did not die from the wrath of God, did they?

And why should God be angry at Bon Scott, or anyone singing about going down the “Highway to Hell”? The song in no way mocked God or any religion.

 

2005 Campinas Car Accident Likely Did Not Happen

The purported Campinas car accident in 2005 cannot be corroborated in any way. But the story itself is preposterous, for several reasons.

  1. Which mother in the world would let her daughter sit in the car of obviously drunk teens?
  2. Why would there be a crate of eggs in the trunk of a car driven by drunk teenagers?
  3. In any accident, the trunk is the most likely part of the car to survive a head-on collision.
  4. If the trunk survived intact (as the story claims), then the car would have been easy to recognise.

Common sense would dictate that this is nothing more than a rather silly urban legend designed to drive the fear of God into “foolish” teens.

 

Christine Hewitt Did Not Mock God

First of all, there is no evidence Christine Hewitt called the Bible “the worst book ever written”. Even if she said that, that would be a criticism of a book, not mocking God.

Christine Hewitt was found burnt beyond recognition in her Toyota Hiace minivan. However, that was only done to cover up the act of murder, and/or to destroy evidence.

She did not spontaneously combust or die as a result of the fire, as the hoax insinuates.

She was actually shot dead and her body placed in her minivan, which was then driven to a lonely rural road before being set on fire.

Her husband, David Lloyd Gordon, and his brother, Wordsworth Gordon, were ultimately charged with her murder.

Obviously, they are not the hands of God… unless God condones murder?

Did Russia + Ukraine Sign Peace Agreement In 2022?!

Did Russia and Ukraine sign a peace agreement in Spring 2022, as Vladimir Putin claimed?!

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

 

Vladimir Putin : Russia + Ukraine Signed Peace Agreement In 2022!

People are sharing a video of Russian President Vladimir Putin showing South African President Cyril Ramaphosa a document, claiming that Russia signed a peace agreement with Ukraine in the spring of 2022!

Robert F. Kennedy Jr : Looks like the Biden Administration deployed Boris Johnson to scuttle a tentative peace agreement between Russia and Ukraine in spring 2022. This was never about the Ukrainian people. It was always about engineering a war against Russia. #Kennedy24

@onlydjole : 🇷🇺‼️Putin: “Peace was signed between Ukraine and Russia in the spring of 2022.”‼️

#Putin publicly showed the previously unpublished document in front of South African President Ramaphosa.

(Nato reportedly sent disgraced US puppet Boris Johnson to force Kiev to back down.)

Richard Medhurst : BREAKING: Putin holds up a peace agreement that Ukraine & Russia signed over a YEAR ago, in spring 2022.

Not one word of this in mainstream media.

Russians are signalling they want a diplomatic settlement. Why isn’t this welcomed? How can they claim Russia sabotaged the talks?

Recommended : Did Mossad Just Admit NATO Is Losing Ukraine War?!

 

Truth : Russia + Ukraine Never Signed Peace Agreement In 2022

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Vladimir Putin himself, and propagated by his supporters to diminish support for Ukraine’s fight against Russia, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Russia + Ukraine Held Multiple Peace Talks In 2022

Russia and Ukraine held multiple rounds of peace talks during the 2022-2023 Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The first round occurred within days of Russia’s invasion on the Belarus-Ukraine border – on 28 February, 3 March, and 7 March. More talks were held in Turkey on 10 March, and more negotiations started on 14 March.

Fact #2 : Sergei Lavrov Dismissed Ukrainian Peace Deal In April 2022

On 7 April 2022, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced that Moscow rejected a draft peace deal from Ukraine, saying that it contained “unacceptable” elements that deviated from proposals that both sides’ negotiators had earlier agreed on.

The new draft, according to Lavrov, said that the status of Crimea should be raised at a meeting between Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelenskyy. It also said that Ukraine can hold military drills with other countries without Russia’s permission.

He also said that peace talks with Ukraine were not progressing as quickly as Russia would like, and accused the West of trying to derail negotiations by accusing Russian troops of war crimes in Ukraine.

Such inability to agree once again highlights Kyiv’s true intentions, its position of drawing out and even undermining the talks by moving away from the understandings reached.

Fact #3 : Russia + Ukraine Peace Talks Failed By July 2022

By July 2022, both Ukraine and Russia announced that peace talks had failed:

  • July 13 : Ukrainian foreign minster Dmytro Kuleba said that peace talks are frozen for the time being
  • July 19 : Dmitry Medvedev said that “Russia will achieve all its goals. There will be peace – on our terms”

In other words – both Russia and Ukraine did not sign any peace agreement in the spring of 2022, as claimed.

Recommended : Russian Government Caught Fabricating Dirty Bomb Evidence!

Fact #4 : Vladimir Putin Rejected Ukrainian Peace Deal

On September 14, 2022, Reuters reported that Vladimir Putin rejected a provisional deal, in which Ukraine agreed to stay out of NATO.

His own chief envoy on Ukraine, Dmitry Kozak, told him that the deal would remove the need for Russia to pursue a large-scale occupation of Ukraine, and recommended that Putin adopt the peace deal.

However, Putin decided to reject the provisional peace agreement Kozak hammered out with the Ukrainians, and pressed ahead with his “special military operation”.

According to sources close to Russian leadership, Putin changed his mind and decided that any peace deal must include the newly-annexed Ukrainian territory.

Fact #5 : Russia + Ukraine Said Peace Deal Was Impossible

It is funny for Vladimir Putin to now claim that Russia and Ukraine had earlier signed a peace agreement in 2022, when Russia continued its invasion of Ukraine.

On top of that, both Putin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov also said that for any peace plan to be acceptable, Ukraine must recognise Russia’s September 2022 annexation of its territory.

After that, Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced that Ukraine would not hold peace talks with Russia, while Putin remained Russian president, and even signed a decree to ban any further peace talks.

Then in January 2023, Putin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said that “there is currently no prospect for diplomatic means of settling the situation around Ukraine”.

Up till Putin’s remarkable claim in June 2023, both Russia and Ukraine have repeatedly said that they cannot come to an agreement. Needless to say – no peace agreement was ever signed.

Is Ukraine Investigating Zelenskyy For High Treason?!

Is the State Bureau of Investigation investigating President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for High Treason against Ukraine?!

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

 

Claim : Ukraine SBI Is Investigating Zelenskyy For High Treason!

People are sharing an article by Scotland Today online, which claims that the Ukraine SBI (State Bureau of Investigation) is investigating President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for High Treason!

Similar claims are also being made by pro-Russia (vatnik) websites and social media accounts. The article is long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Zelenskyy to be investigated for “High Treason,” by Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigation

The Pechersk District Court of Kyiv issued a ruling to oblige the Ukrainian State Bureau of Investigation to start a pre-trial investigation in connection with the possible treason of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, former Verkhovna Rada deputy Geo Leros said on May 30 in his Telegram channel.

Recommended : Did Mossad Just Admit NATO Is Losing Ukraine War?!

 

Truth : Zelenskyy Pre-Trial Investigation Is Just Protocol

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS promoted by pro-Russia activists to diminish support for Ukraine’s fight against Russia, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Geo Leros Is Accusing Zelenskyy Of High Treason

The accusation that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy committed high treason was not brought by the state of Ukraine itself, but by one of the former members of his own party, Geo Leros.

Geo Leros is a Ukrainian Member of Parliament, who was elected to the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament) as a member of Zelenskyy’s Servant of the People party. However, he soon turned against his colleagues, and started accusing Zelenskyy of violating election promises, and Zelenskyy’s chief of staff, Andriy Yermak, of corruption.

He was since expelled from the Servant of the People’s party, and has since been actively working to bring down the Zelenskyy administration. In March 2023, he accused the Ukrainian authorities of censoring TV broadcasts, and corruption – with over 20 million dollars transferred to TV oligarchs.

Now, Geo Leros is accusing President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of committing high treason against the state of Ukraine, by appointing Russian FSB agents to key positions in the SBU (Security Service of Ukraine).

Committed to open a criminal case of Article 111 (treason) against Zelensky and co!

I remind you that the pocket SBR refused to investigate Zelensky’s treason when he appointed FSB agents to key positions in the SBU, but we were obliged by the court to report to the Yardr and start a pre-trial investigation.

Zelensky, Ermak, Mashovets, Bakanov, Demchenko should be questioned as the main figures of the appointment of FSB agents in the Security Service of Ukraine.

These freaks must show who and how much paid them for these appointments, because these appointments have led to tens of thousands of dead Ukrainians.

I will not allow these traitors to escape responsibility for serious crimes against the Ukrainian people!

Fact #2 : The Letter Appears To Be Genuine

The letter that Geo Leros posted on Instagram, and shared excitedly by pro-Russian websites and social media accounts, appears to be genuine. Here is a machine translation of the letter:

PECHERSKY DISTRICT COURT OF THE CITY OF KYIV

Document No. 757/21124/23-k

RESOLVED IN THE NAME OF UKRAINE

On May 30, 2023, the Investigating Judge of the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv – T.V. Ostapchuk, under the secretary – K.S. Lymar,

Fact #3 : The Court Order Did Not Order Criminal Investigation

While the letter is being framed as evidence that Geo Leros succeeded in opening a criminal investigation of High Treason against President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and other members of his administration, it is merely protocol.

In November 2012, a new Code of Criminal Procedure was introduced in Ukraine, in which Article 214 states that all reports of criminal offences must be registered for Pre-trial Investigations within 24 hours.

This is a standard procedure for all accusations or reports of criminal offences, regardless of whether they are genuine or not.

The investigator, interrogating officer, prosecutor immediately, but no later than 24 hours after filing an application, reporting a criminal offense or after independently identifying from any source circumstances that may indicate the commission of a criminal offense, is obliged to enter the relevant information into the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations to start investigation and, 24 hours after entering such information, provide the applicant with an extract from the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations.

What the Pecherskyi district court ordered in the letter is merely to order that the Ukrainian State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) comply with Article 214 of the Code of Criminal Procedure and file Geo Leros’ report of high treason for Pre-trial Investigation.

According to Article 2019 of the same code, the SBI has 18 months to conduct a Pre-trial Investigation of “grave and especially grave crimes”. After that, the SBI is obliged to either close the proceedings if it finds no evidence of a crime, or send an indictment to the court.

Uncle Roger Cancelled In China After Xi Jinping Joke!

Malaysian comedian Uncle Roger just got cancelled from Chinese social media platforms after making jokes about Xi Jinping and China!

 

Uncle Roger Cancelled In China After Xi Jinping Joke!

Uncle Roger just got cancelled from Chinese social media platforms after making jokes about Xi Jinping and China!

The Malaysian comedian, whose real name is Nigel Ng, said that his accounts on Bilibili and Weibo where he has 400,000 followers, were suspended due to a “violation of relevant laws and regulations“!

This crackdown by Chinese authorities came after he posted a video clip on Twitter and YouTube called “Uncle Roger about to get cancelled“.

In that video clip, which appears to be from an undated standup show, Uncle Roger cracked some jokes about China and Taiwan.

Uncle Roger : Are you from Boston?

Audience : Originally from Guangzhou.

Uncle Roger : Guangzhou, China. China, okay, China. Good country. Good country. Good country. Good country. Phew! We have to say that now, correct? All the phone listening. All the phone listening. This nephew got HUAWEI phone. They all listening.

Uncle Roger (tapping his phone) : All our phone tap into it. Long live President Xi. Long live President Xi. Phew! Uncle Roger social credit score going up. Nice.

Uncle Roger : Any niece and nephew from Taiwan?

[Audience woos]

Uncle Roger : Not a real… not a real country. I hope one day you rejoin the motherland. One China.

[Audience laughs]

Uncle Roger : No, don’t clap too hard. This not political show. No, don’t clap. Uncle Roger gonna get cancelled after tonight.

Uncle Roger (looking at audience member) : Nice. Go write good report for Uncle Roger, okay? Dear CCP, Uncle Roger good comrade. Good comrade. Don’t make him disappear, please.

Even though both Twitter and YouTube are not accessible in China, Chinese authorities apparently felt aggrieved enough to order the cancellation of Uncle Roger’s social media accounts in China.

Uncle Roger Proves Chinese Cancel Culture + Rides Controversy!

Despite being cancelled on Chinese social media, and losing access to thousands of his fans, this appears to be a deliberate and incredibly smart move by Nigel Ng.

Chinese comedian Li Haoshi (who goes by the stage name, House), was just arrested and fined $2.1 million for making a joke about a Xi Jinping slogan. So Nigel Ng is well aware of the danger of criticising Xi Jinping and/or the CCP government.

Yet, he deliberately dropped the video clip on Twitter and YouTube right after the Li Haoshi controversy exploded, with the title “Uncle Roger about to get cancelled“. And the CCP government in China took his bait, and promptly cancelled him.

In one swoop, Nigel made his Uncle Roger character famous worldwide. His cancellation is now international news, exposing millions of people to his jokes and character. His 400,000 Weibo fans are now a drop in the bucket. His two video clips have now been viewed MILLIONS of times!

And thanks to his newfound fame and reach, Nigel Ng should see a huge boost in pre-order of the full video which is set to be released on June 4, 2023.

By taking Nigel’s bait, the CCP government just showed the world how it does not operate according to the rule of law. Rather, the CCP government under President Xi Jinping operates autocratically using the rule by law. Anyone who offends Xi Jinping or the CCP government in any way, will get the law thrown at them, whether it is right or not.

The controversy also highlighted the difference between CCP-controlled mainland China, and democratic Taiwan. Even though Uncle Roger in the clip called Taiwan “not a real country”, he was not cancelled in Taiwan because Taiwan not only allows free speech, it protects that right in its constitution.

Nigel Ng certainly isn’t losing any sleep over getting cancelled by the CCP government in China, because he now lives in the United Kingdom where free speech is also protected. In fact, he just doubled down by reposting the video on Twitter, with the message “for some reason this clip got a ton of views this past weekend. I wonder why” together with a pre-order link for his full video.

I should point out that this is not Nigel Ng’s first rodeo with Chinese nationalists.. In January 2021, he was severely criticised on Weibo for collaborating with Chinese-American YouTuber Mike Chen, who is well-known for his critical views of the CCP government.

Even though both did not mention politics during their vote, the social media backlash forced Nigel to apologise for the collaboration, even acknowledging that the video created a “bad social impact”. At that time, he removed all videos involving Mike Chen – which drew criticism that he was too weak.

However, it appears that Nigel Ng may have grown some cojones since then. Good for him!
