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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Did JAG Arrest Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart?!

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

 

Claim : JAG Arrested Colorado Supreme Court Justice Melissa Hart!

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

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

JAG Arrests 4th Treasonous Colorado SCJ Melissa Hart

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

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

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

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

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

Fact #3 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Truth : Michelle Obama Did Not Announce Running For President!

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : They Were Posted On April 1

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Photo Was From February 2020

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

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

Fact #4 : Audio Was Edited

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

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

Fact #5 : Michelle Obama Was Born Female

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

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

Recommended : Do Photos Prove Michelle Obama Is Transgender?!

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #6 : Michelle Obama Ruled Out Presidency Bid

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

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

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

Did WEF declare pedophilia as protected sexual orientation?!

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

 

Claim : WEF Declares Pedophilia Protected Sexual Orientation!

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

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

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

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

 

Truth : WEF Did Not Declare Pedophilia Protected Sexual Orientation!

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : Canada Is Not Seeking To Protect Pedophilia

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Canada Is Only Targeting Online Hate Speech

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

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

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

Fact #4 : WEF Screenshot Is Fake

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

Hatred towards pedophiles is immoral and dangerous.

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

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

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

Alex Jones Agrees To Shut Down Infowars?!

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

 

How Alex Jones Came To Shut Down Infowars!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Alex Jones Decides To Shut Down Infowars!

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

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

Recommended : Infowars Proven Wrong About Biden Face Mask Mandate!

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

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

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

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

Did WEF Order Cyber Attacks On US Water Supply?!

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

 

Claim : WEF Orders Cyber Attacks On US Water Supply!

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

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

WEF Memo Orders Devastating Cyber Attacks on US Water Supply

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : WEF Video Is From 2022

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Water will soon become a privilege you must earn!

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

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

Did Joe Biden Ban Religious-Themed Easter Eggs?!

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

 

Claim : Joe Biden Banned Religious-Themed Easter Eggs!

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #4 : This Is Just Joe Biden Fake News

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

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

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

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

 

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

Some people are claiming or suggesting that US President Joe Biden just cancelled Easter in the United States!

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

Hodgetwins : Biden just announced that Sunday is now tranny day 🤣

I guess Easter is cancelled this year

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recommended : Are Soldiers Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure?!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #5 : Joe Biden Celebrated Easter In Previous Years

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

White Hats Suggest Dali Unmanned at Time of Collision

Recommended : Baltimore Bridge Collapse Conspiracies Debunked!

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : One Sailor Left The Dali

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Other Ship Crews Remain Onboard

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Baltimore Bridge Collapse Conspiracies Debunked!

Take a look at the conspiracy theories surrounding the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, after it was hit by a ship, and find out what the facts really are!

Baltimore Bridge Collapse Conspiracies… So Far!

Right after news broke that the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore collapsed after being hit by a massive container ship, some people immediately began suggesting there was more to the tragedy than meets the eyes…

Lara Logan : Welcome to the world of cyber terrorism.
Acc to intel sources: The Baltimore bridge collapse was a 9/11 style attack but they won’t admit it and we cannot see it because it was a CYBER ATTACK.

Lauren Witzke : You know things are getting bad when you can’t tell the difference between DEI incompetency and terrorism.

Recommended : Are Soldiers Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure?!

Baltimore Bridge Collapse Conspiracies Debunked!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by conspiracy theorists and conspiracists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Baltimore Bridge Collapsed After Being Hit By Ship

Let me start by simply pointing out that the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore collapsed on March 26, 2024, after being hit by a massive cargo container ship.

This Baltimore bridge did not collapse after an explosion. Neither was its collapse caused by a planned demolition in a false flag operation.

The viral video showing the bridge collapsing after an explosion is actually a video showing the partial collapse of the Crimean Bridge after being hit by a truck bomb on 8 October 2022. It has nothing to do with the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore.

Fact #2 : Baltimore Bridge Opened In 1977

Constructed over a period of five years at an estimated cost of US$110 million, the Francis Scott Key Bridge opened in 1977. It is a 4-lane steel bridge that spanned 2.6 km across the Patapsco River, where its namesake wrote the Star-Spangled Banner in 1814 after witnessing the British defeat at the Battle of Baltimore, and the British bombing of Fort McHenry.

After the bridge collapsed, other ships could no longer leave the Port of Baltimore. Over 40 ships remain trapped inside the Baltimore port, while another 30 ships that planned to make port are no longer able to do so.

The key point is this – this bridge was built 47 years ago under Republican president Gerald Ford, and opened under Democratic president Jimmy Carter. There was no DEI at that time, and its design and construction had nothing to do with the present Biden Administration, including current Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Recommended : Was a man killed after putting out his arm to stop the lift?!

Fact #3 : The Container Ship Lost Power

The Dali is a massive Singapore-flagged container ship that is 289 meters long, and holds up to 10,000 twenty-foot equivalent (TEU) cargo containers. At the time it hit the bridge, it was carrying 4,679 TEU containers of cargo.

It was just leaving the Port of Baltimore just after midnight when it lost power. Not only were the crew blinded in the dark, none of its electronics worked and there was no propulsion, so they were unable to control the ship.

As the crew tried unsuccessfully to restart its engine, a local pilot onboard the vessel ordered the ship to be steered to port (left), and the anchor to be dropped. While the crew managed to restore electrical power using an emergency generator, they were not able to restart its engines.

With the ship floating adrift, the two local pilots onboard issued a mayday call at 1:30 AM to warn authorities that a collision was imminent, which allowed them to stop traffic from going over the bridge. A Maryland Transportation Authority official was recorded saying at that time:

There’s a ship approaching that has lost their steering. Until you’ve got that under control, we’ve got to stop all traffic.

According to NTSB investigator in charge, Marcel Muise, the recovered voyage data recorder (VDR) helped them establish the timeline of events:

12:39 AM : Dali departs Seagirt Marine Terminal

1:07 AM : Dali enters Fort McHenry Channel

1:24 AM : Numerous alarms were recorded on audio at the ship’s bridge, and data recording stopped (due to power loss) before resuming shortly from a redundant power source.

1:26 AM : The pilots onboard Dali made a high frequency radio call for tugboats to assist the Dali.

1:27 AM : The pilot dropped the port anchor and made another radio call reporting that the Dali lost all power, and was approaching the bridge.

1:29 AM : The Dali collided with the Francis Scott Key Bridge’s support pylon, causing it to collapse.

The video below, which is being shared on WhatsApp, does not accurately reflect the truth – the ship never regained the use of its engines, but it clearly shows when the ship lost power, and when it restored electrical power.

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

Fact #4 : No Evidence It Was A Planned Attack

There is no evidence that this accident was a planned attack, a cyberattack or a false flag operation.

For one thing – the Dali is owned by Singapore-based Grace Ocean, and managed by Singapore-based Synergy Marine Group, and it was chartered by Danish shipping giant Maersk to carry cargo. It is highly unlikely that those Singaporean and Danish companies would be involved in a planned attack.

On top of that, there were two local pilots onboard the Dali. If it was a planned attack, they would be complicit in a plot that would have involved dozens of people and intricate planning… for the “terrifying” purpose of collapsing a single bridge. Hardly makes for a great movie plot, don’t you think?

The Baltimore Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said in a press statement, that “There is no specific and credible information to suggest any ties to terrorism at this time.

United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron also dismissed those claims in a public statement, saying “There is no evidence at this time to suggest that today’s collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore has any ties to terrorism.

Fact #5 : Dali Was Inspected Twice Last Year

Dali was involved in a July 2016 accident, in which it hit a quay as it tried to exit the North Sea container terminal at the port of Antwerp in Belgium. That incident, which damaged several meters of its hull, was blamed on the ship’s master, and the local pilot onboard.

The Dali was inspected twice last year. According to Equasis, an inspection that was carried out in June 2023 in San Antonio, Chile, found that the Dali had “propulsion and auxiliary machinery” deficiencies. The Maritime Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said a faulty monitor gauge for fuel pressure was rectified before the vessel departed the port.

In September 2023, the Dali underwent another inspection, this time by the US Coast Guard in New York, but that inspection did not find any deficiencies at that time. However, that does not mean that the Dali did not suffer engine failure before colliding into the Francis Scott Key Bridge.

Until investigations into the Dali are complete, anyone who claims that the collision was intentional is likely lying to you.

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

Fact #6 : Loss Of Power May Be Caused By Dirty Fuel

The loss of power experienced by the Dali is common in the maritime industry (source) – as many as 600 cases each year according to FuelTrust, although most occur in open water. They are often associated with poorly mixed fuel, or changing from high-sulphur to low-sulphur fuels when entering coastal emission control areas (ECAs).

In fact, shipping experts think “dirty fuel” may be the reason for Dali to lose power before smashing into the Francis Scott Key Bridge (source).

That power loss could have been caused by dirty fuel clogging filters that lead to the ship’s main generator.

While inside a port, as the Dali was before the collision, ships typically run on a relatively light diesel fuel. That also could have been contaminated. Common contaminants include water, dirt and algae. He definitely could have had dirty fuel

– Gerald Scoggins, a veteran chief engineer in the oil and gas industry and the CEO of the Houston company Deepwater Producers

Ian Ralby, the CEO of I.R. Consilium, a maritime and resource security consultancy, also said heavy marine fuel loaded onto ships in port is mixed with what is called cutter stock, and is prone to being loaded with contaminants and is not closely regulated. Such dirty fuel could have “gummed up all of the fuel lines on the ship.”

Fact #7 : Baltimore Bridge Was In Fair Condition

According to a press aide for Pete Buttigieg (source), the Francis Scott Key Bridge was last inspected in May 2023, and “found to be in satisfactory condition with an overall rating of fair”. Such inspections are supposed to occur every 24 months

Previously, Federal Highway Administration records show the bridge was last inspected in May 2021. Back then, inspectors rated its condition as “fair” with a rating of 6 (satisfactory) out of a maximum of 9, on three parameters.

To be clear – these inspections were being carried out on the bridge every 2 years, regardless of who happens to be the Transportation Secretary at that time.

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

Fact #8 : Baltimore Bridge Location + Design Was Problematic

In light of the accident, experts are highlighting the problems with the location of the bridge’s piers and its design.

The Francis Scott Key Bridge is a steel truss suspension bridge with three centre spans held up by piers. Engineering experts that 11 News spoke to questioned why those piers were built so close to the shipping channel. They also pointed out that the bridge piers were not built to handle such ship collisions.

The way that it collapsed, I think that was surprising to some people, in particular, because one of the piers was hit, but all three of the spans collapsed. That’s a function of the continuity of the bridge.

So, there is a lot of load-sharing that goes on among those three spans, and so, if two of them are damaged or destroyed, as was the case here, by their support, direct support being removed, then the third span is going to be severely impacted and collapsed as well.

– Rachel Sangree, an associate teaching professor in the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering at the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering

In other words – the Francis Scott Key Bridge did not collapse due to controlled demolition. Its three spans collapsed after the pier was hit due to its suspension design.

Fact #9 : Baltimore Bridge Lacked Pier Protection

Roberto Leon, a Virginia Tech engineering professor, also highlighted the fact that the piers lacked protection:

The only way the post can resist it is by bending. But it cannot absorb anywhere near the energy that this humongous ship is bringing. So it’s going to break.

If a bridge pier without adequate protection is hit by a ship of this size, there is very little that the bridge could do.

After the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001, Maryland discussed installing pier guards, but decided against it as it was too expensive.

I think they would have been effective in all this. They would have reduced the impact, or at least prevented the ship impacting directly the piers because the way it went, it looked almost effortlessly the same. The vessel hit the pier and it just went and there was no hesitation. The bridge couldn’t handle it at all. So, I think the fenders, the bumpers would help.

– Abieyuwa Aghayere, a civil engineering professor at Drexel University

Just to be clear – this decision was made more than 20 years ago, and had nothing to do with the current Biden Administration, or current Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Did Cyberattack Cause Dali To Hit Baltimore Bridge?!

Did a cyberattack cause the Dali to hit the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, causing it to collapse?!

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

 

Claim : Cyberattack Caused Dali To Hit Baltimore Bridge!

Right after news broke that the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore collapsed after being hit by a massive container ship, some people immediately began suggesting there was more to the tragedy than meets the eyes…

Alex Jones : Looks deliberate to me. A cyber-attack is probable. WW3 has already started..

Andrew Tate : This ship was cyber-attacked. Lights go off and it deliberately steers towards the bridge supports. Foreign agents of the USA attack digital infrastructures. Nothing is safe. Black Swan event imminent.

Recommended : Baltimore Bridge Collapse Conspiracies Debunked!

No Evidence Cyberattack Caused Dali To Hit Baltimore Bridge!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created or promoted by conspiracy theorists and conspiracists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Dali Lost Power Before Hitting Baltimore Bridge!

Let me start by simply pointing out that the Dali – a massive container ship, only hit the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, after it lost engine power.

The Dali lost power soon after leaving the Port of Baltimore in the middle of the night. Not only were the crew blinded in the dark, none of its electronics worked and there was no propulsion, so they were unable to control the ship.

As the crew tried unsuccessfully to restart its engine, a local pilot onboard the vessel ordered the ship to be steered to port (left), and the anchor to be dropped. While the crew managed to restore electrical power using an emergency generator, they were not able to restart its engines.

The video below, which is being shared on WhatsApp, does not accurately reflect the truth – the ship never regained the use of its engines, but it clearly shows when the ship lost power, and when it restored electrical power.

Recommended : Can Canada Social Credit System Freeze Bank Accounts?!

Fact #2 : No Evidence Dali Was Hit By Cyberattack

Despite claims by people with unnamed “inside sources”, there is simply no evidence that the Dali was hit by a cyberattack which steered it right into a bridge in Baltimore.

Built by Hyundai Heavy Industries, the Dali is powered by a single MAN 9-cylinder S90ME-C9.2 crosshead diesel engine. It also has a single 3,000 kW bow thruster for manoeuvring in ports, and four diesel generators for electricity.

While those engines, and controls, may be connected to a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), they are not connected to the Internet. Even if the Dali’s SCADA system was somehow taken over by malware, the lack of Internet connectivity would make it impossible for any hacker to steer it into the bridge.

An early Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) report appears to rule out an intentional or act of terrorism, finding that the Dali “lost propulsion” as it was leaving port.

The Baltimore Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said in a press statement, that “There is no specific and credible information to suggest any ties to terrorism at this time.

United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron also dismissed those claims in a public statement, saying “There is no evidence at this time to suggest that today’s collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore has any ties to terrorism.

If the Dali was indeed hit by a cyberattack before its crash, there would be evidence of hacking or malware in its SCADA system. However, until such evidence is discovered, anyone who tells out that it was definitely hit by a cyberattack is likely lying to you.

Unsurprisingly, none of those who claimed that a cyberattack caused the Dali to lose power and hit the Francis Scott Key Bridge ever provided a single shred of evidence from behind their keyboards.

Fact #3 : Ship Loss Of Power Is Common

The loss of power is common in the maritime industry (source) – as many as 600 cases each year according to FuelTrust, although most occur in open water.

Claim : Soldiers Are Not Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure!

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

Fact #1 : Soldiers Are Not Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure!

This is really silly, but it has to be said – US soldiers are not protecting Trump properties from seizure.

If soldiers were actually deployed to protect his properties, it would have been covered internationally, not just nationally, because it would be completely unprecedented,

Yet, there was no such news. Not even right-wing conservative websites or pundits mentioned such a shocking event. There are also no photos or videos of soldiers guarding any Trump property. That’s because it never happened. There are no soldiers protecting Trump properties from being seized.

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

Fact #2 : US Soldiers Cannot Be Deployed Except In Special Circumstances

It is really silly for anyone to claim that US soldiers were sent to protect properties owned by Donald Trump, more so to prevent them from being seized.

The Posse Comitatus Act prevents federal military personnel from being deployed within the United States, except when expressly authorised by the Constitution, or an Act of Congress.

Generally, only the President of the United States can order the deployment of US federal military personnel and federalised National Guard troops within the United States using the Insurrection Act of 1807.

Even if President Joe Biden wanted to help protect Donald Trump’s properties, he wouldn’t be able to use the Insurrection Act to deploy troops, because they can only be deployed to “suppress civil disorder, insurrection, or rebellion”

Fact #3 : 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.

Was Kate Middleton murdered + replaced with body double?!

Was Kate Middleton murdered and replaced with a body double?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Kate Middleton Was Murdered + Replaced With Body Double!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that Kate Middleton was murdered and replaced with a body double!

Here is an excerpt of the extremely long and (intentionally?) confusing article…

Royal Insider: Kate Middleton Was Sacrificed and Replaced With Body Double

Recommended : Is Kate Middleton Planning To Retire From Royal Duties?!

 

Truth : Kate Middleton Was Not Murdered + Replaced With Body Double!

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

Fact #1 : Kate Middleton Was Not Murdered

Let me start by pointing out that Kate Middleton has not been murdered and replaced with a body double for PR purposes.

If Kate Middleton actually died, it would merely be a matter of time because it has to be made public. For one thing – her children would have know that she died, and would not have kept quiet.

No matter how long the Royal Family can pretend, it would have gotten out eventually, and there would have been a major uproar.

More importantly – there is simply no reason to keep quiet about her death. What purpose would it serve to get a body double to masquerade as Kate Middleton if she actually died??? How does covering up her death serve any nefarious Illuminati or Luciferian purpose???

Fact #2 : The People’s Voice Provided No Evidence

Not surprisingly, The People’s Voice article never actually provided any evidence that Kate Middleton was murdered, and replaced with a body double.

It also never provided any evidence that Christine Fitzgerald, or two palace aides, ever said that Kate Middleton was sacrificed in some kind of bloody ritual, and replaced with a body double.

Fact #3 : Kate Middleton Was Seen Alive + Well

The claim that Kate Middleton was murdered is also ludicrous, as she has been spotted in public at least TWICE, even if you ignore the TMZ video.

On 4 March (more than a week ago!), paparazzi took photos of Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, sitting in a vehicle being driven by her mother, Carol, near Windsor Castle.

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

On 11 March – 3 days ago, she was seen leaving in a car with Prince William, just hours after she apologised for digitally editing her Mother’s Day photo.

These two photos clearly show that Kate Middleton is alive and well enough to go out without medical staff present. They suggest that Kensington Palace was telling the truth when it stated that the Princess of Wales was recovering well.

On top of that, Kate Middleton herself posted a photo taken by Prince William for Mother’s Day:

Fact #4 : Royal Family Didn’t Share Those Photos

The People’s Voice article claimed that the “Royals have now shared a total of four… faked photos“. That’s simply not true.

With the exception of the infamous Mother’s Day photo taken by Prince William, and purportedly edited by Princess Catherine, the Royal Family never posted or shared the other two photos, or the TMZ video.

They were all taken and posted by the media, and never shared by the House of Windsor, Buckingham Palace, or Kensington Palace.

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:

Was the secret Clinton pedophile and cannibal club in Haiti just exposed by locals?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Clinton Pedophile + Cannibal Club In Haiti Was Just Exposed!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that the Trudeau administration planning to ban Christianity in Canada!

Recommended : Is Hillary Clinton Under Investigation For Child Sex Trafficking?!

 

Truth : There Is No Clinton Pedophile + Cannibal Club In Haiti!

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

Fact #1 : There Is No Clinton Pedophile + Cannibal Club In Haiti!

Let me start by pointing out that there is no Clinton pedophile and cannibal club in Haiti. The idea is so ludicrous, it’s amazing there are people who actually believe it.

If Bill and Hillary Clinton actually run a pedophile and cannibal club in Haiti, it would have been reported by right-wing media outlets and websites, if not the mainstream media. And what about international media? Even if the major media outlets refuse to report on it, it would have been covered by the Chinese and Russian media.

Yet not even Fox News or OAN in the US, or Xinhua or CGTN from China, or Russia’s RT or Sputnik, ever reported that Bill and Hillary Clinton has a pedophile and cannibal club in Haiti! That’s because there is simply no truth to these ridiculous claims.

Fact #2 : The People’s Voice Provided No Evidence

Not surprisingly, The People’s Voice article never actually provided any evidence that Bill and Hillary Clinton ever had a pedophile and cannibal club in Haiti.

Instead, it posted a screenshot of a Toronto Star news report about UN peacekeepers running a child sex ring in Haiti, and photos of Bill Maher, Conan O’Brien, and Susan Sarandon wearing ‘Haiti Is Great Already‘ t-shirts.

The 2007 Haiti sexual abuse scandal had nothing to do with the Clintons, and involved 114 members of the Sri Lankan Army who were in Haiti on a peacekeeping mission.

The ‘Haiti Is Great Again‘ t-shirts have nothing to do with Bill or Hillary Clinton either. In fact, it was Donald Trump who inspired it when he called Haiti a “shithole country“. In response, Conan O’Brien started sellingHaiti Is Great Again‘ t-shirts, with the proceeds going to two charities that help Haiti and the Haitian people.

To be clear – neither the child sex scandal, nor the t-shirts, have anything to do with the Clintons.

Fact #3 : Dr Ariel Henry Screenshot Is Fake

The cover image used by The People’s Voice article and video has a screenshot which purportedly shows the acting Prime Minister and acting President of Haiti, Dr. Ariel Henry, posting on X (formerly Twitter) that:

The Clintons are evil incarnate – they are eating our children!

That is most definitely a fake screenshot, because there is no such post on X by Dr. Ariel Henry. On top of that, his account has a grey checkmark, and not a blue checkmark. In addition, he posts his messages in French, not English.

If Dr. Ariel Henry actually called Bill and Hillary Clinton “evil incarnate”, and claimed that they are literally eating children, it would have been reported by the worldwide media. But of course, that didn’t happen, because he never posted it!

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

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

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

Did Trump warn it’ll be a ‘Bloodbath’ if he’s not elected?!

Did Donald Trump warn that it will be a ‘bloodbath’ if he’s not elected as President?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Media Lied That Trump Warned Of ‘Bloodbath’ If Not Elected!

Some people are claiming that the mainstream media lied about Donald Trump warning of a ‘bloodbath’ if he is not elected in the 2024 US Presidential elections!

Elon Musk : Legacy media lies

Recommended : Was French First Lady Brigitte Macron Born A Man?!

 

Truth : Trump Did Warn Of ‘Bloodbath’ If Not Elected!

This appears to be another example of misinformation circulating on social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Donald Trump Warned Of ‘Bloodbath’ If Not Elected

Let me start by pointing out that former President Donald Trump did indeed warn of a ‘bloodbath’ if he is not elected in the 2024 US Presidential elections.

He made those comments at a campaign rally in Dayton, Ohio, on 16 March 2024. Here is the transcript of his speech:

Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole – that’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country. That will be the least of it. But they’re not going to sell those cars. They’re building massive factories.

So yes, Donald Trump did indeed warn or say that “it’s going to be a bloodbath for the country” if he doesn’t “get elected“.

Fact #2 : Donald Trump ‘Bloodbath’ Warning Was About Car Industry

That said, it is important to note that Donald Trump’s ‘bloodbath’ warning referred to the automotive industry, because it came after his comments on the car manufacturing plants China is building in Mexico:

Let me tell you something to China. If you’re listening President Xi and you and I are friends but he understands the way I deal. Those big monster car manufacturing plants that you’re building in Mexico right now. And you think you’re going to get that, you’re going to not hire Americans and you’re going to sell the cars to us no. We’re going to put a 100% tariff on every single car that comes across the line, and you’re not going to be able to sell those guys if I get elected.

To be clear – Donald Trump was warning of an economic bloodbath, and not a literal, violent bloodbath.

Recommended : Is Justin Trudeau planning to BAN Christianity in Canada?!

Fact #3 : Mainstream Media Did Not Misrepresent ‘Bloodbath’ Comments

Donald Trump is known for making inflammatory comments, so it is easy to see how people may believe that he was actually referring to a violent ‘bloodbath’. However, did the mainstream media really misrepresent his ‘bloodbath’ comments as suggested or claimed?

Not quite. Major media outlets, and even some political outlets, made it clear in their titles that Trump was referring to a bloodbath for the auto industry:

CNN : Trump warns of ‘bloodbath’ for auto industry and country if he loses the election

ABC News : Trump, while addressing auto industry, says there will be ‘bloodbath’ if he loses 2024 election, ramps up anti-migrant rhetoric

Daily Express UK : Donald Trump warns of ‘bloodbath’ for US auto industry if he is not re-elected

The Daily Beast : Trump Declares It Will Be a ‘Bloodbath’ for Auto Industry if He’s Not Elected

While other media outlets did not refer to the auto industry in their titles, they were clear in their articles that Donald Trump was referring to the automotive industry.

New York Times : Trump Says Some Migrants Are ‘Not People’ and Predicts a ‘Blood Bath’ if He Loses

While discussing the U.S. economy and its auto industry, Mr. Trump promised to place tariffs on cars manufactured abroad if he won in November. He added: “Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a blood bath for the whole — that’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a blood bath for the country.”

The Guardian : Trump predicts ‘bloodbath’ if he loses election and claims ‘Biden beat Obama’

The US, Trump insisted during comments about the auto workers and the car industry, was headed for “a bloodbath” if he was rejected again at the polls in favor of Biden.

It is very likely that those who have been complaining that the mainstream media was representing Trump’s ‘bloodbath’ comments did not actually read the articles.

Fact #4 : Trump Warned There Won’t Be Another Election

To be fair to those who think that Donald Trump was inciting violence again, he did suggest later that American will never have another election if he is not elected in 2024.

I don’t think you’re going to have another election in this country, if we don’t win this election … certainly not an election that’s meaningful.

While Trump appears to quickly backtrack on his remarks, his supporters and fans may not realise it, and may be incited to secure his election victory by hook or by crook.

Was French First Lady Brigitte Macron Born A Man?!

Is French First Lady Brigitte Macron a transgender woman who was really born a man?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2024-03-17 : Added more details about Brigitte Macron and Jean-Michel Trogneux.
Originally posted @ 2024-03-15

 

Claim : French First Lady Brigitte Macron Was Born A Man!

Some people are claiming that French First Lady Brigitte Macron was born a man, who later transitioned into a transgender woman!

Candace Owens : Stop everything and watch this! Not a joke or an exaggeration to say that barring political assassinations, this is likely the biggest scandal that has ever happened in politics in human history.

I looked into this expecting it to be an insane conspiracy theory and it is anything but. It took 3 years of research for the journalists to unpack this series. It would take 3 seconds for Macron to dispel these rumors and yet they seem unable to. The implications are WILD.

Candace OwensThis episode is blowing up so I just want to say—After looking into this, I would stake my entire professional reputation on the fact that Brigitte Macron is in fact a man. Any journalist or publication that is trying to dismiss this plausibility is immediately identifiable as establishment.

I have never seen anything like this in my life. The implications here are terrifying. I do not intend to let up on this story and I am calling on other journalists to look into this explosive story and report accordingly.

Recommended : Is Kate Middleton Planning To Retire From Royal Duties?!

 

Truth : Brigitte Marcon Was Not Born A Man!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by conspiracy theorists, and here are the reasons why, with the help of Nicolas Faure and Jonathan Moadab!

Fact #1 : Emmanuel Macron Called Rumours False + Fabricated!

After Candace Owens made those claims on her Daily Wire show, French President Emmanuel Macron called them “false and fabricated“.

The worst thing is the false information and fabricated scenarios. People eventually believe them and disturb you, even in your intimacy.

He also said that the transgender claims about his wife were typical of misogynistic online attacks that women have to put up with. These transgender attacks on Brigitte Macron as similar (example | example | example) to what Michelle Obama has been subjected to.

Fact #2 : Brigitte Macron Family Photo Shows Her As A Girl

Conspiracy theorists claim that Brigitte is the boy on the far left in this Trogneux family photo. But that’s actually her brother – Jean-Michel Trogneux. Brigitte Trogneux is really the little girl sitting on the lap of her mother, Simone Pujol.

Of course, they claim that the little girl is really Christine Haquin or Nathalie Farcy – one of her cousins. They can’t seem to decide who. They also cannot explain why would the Trogneux family included a niece in a family portrait!

In any case, those theories are easily dismissed – Christine Haquin was born in 1957, while Nathalie Farcy was born on 23 September 1959. In other words, they were born about 2-5 years after this photo was taken (circa 1954/1955).

Fact #3 : Jean-Michel Did Not Disappear!

The conspiracy theory claims that Brigitte Macron is really Jean-Michel Henri Trogneux – the boy on the far left in the photo above, and that he disappeared in the 1980s.

That’s not true, because Jean-Michel’s birth certificate shows that he was born on 11 February 1945, while a newspaper cutting shows that Brigette Trogeneux was born a girl on 13 April 1953 – more than 8 years later!

Jean-Michel Trogneux was also seen on television together with Emmanuel Macron. French journalist Jonathan Moadab also tracked Jean-Michel to his house.

Fact #4 : Brigitte Macron Married Her First Husband In 1975

The conspiracy theory claims that Brigitte Macron only became a transgender woman when she was 30 years old. That’s not possible.

Born Brigitte Marie-Claude Trogneux on 13 April 1953, she married her first husband, André-Louis Auzière, on 22 June 1974 – when she was 21 years old.

According to the conspiracy theory, Brigitte would have been a man when she married Auzière (also a man). That’s not possible, because France did not permit same sex marriage in the 1970s. In fact, France only legalised same-sex marriage on 18 May 2013 – almost 39 years later!

In addition, Jean-Michel married Véronique Christine Dominique on 24 November 1980 – more than 5 years later, and Brigitte attended as a witness!

Fact #5 : Brigitte Macron Gave Birth To Three Children

On top of that, Brigitte Macron gave birth to three children – Sébastien Auzière, Laurence Auzière-Jourdan, and Tiphaine Auzière (photo below). That would not be possible if she was born a biological male.

Transgender women can change their looks, and develop breasts. They, however, lack both ovaries and uterus, and cannot give birth to children. So this claim is utter nonsense.

Recommended : Did Mel Gibson Say Elites Will Die To Make Way For Antichrist?!

Fact #6 : Brigitte Macron Won Libel Case On Transgender Rumour

It appears that these transgender rumours were started with the release of a so-called “three-year investigation” by a small, far-right publication called Faits et Documents (Facts and Documents) in September 2021.

However, it only went viral, when two women – Amandine Roy, a clairvoyant, and Natacha Rey, a so-called freelance journalist, made those claims in a YouTube video in December 2021.

In February 2022, Brigitte Macron and her three children, as well as her brother, Jean-Michel Trogneux, filed a libel lawsuit against the two women. Brigitte and her brother, Jean-Michel, also filed a (criminal) complaint for libel.

On Tuesday, 14 February 2023, the judicial court in Lisieux convicted the two women of libel, and fined them €2,000 each. Those fines were later reduced on appeal, but they both remain convicted of libel.

Fact #7 : Viral Photos Were Edited

Some people are sharing photos which they claim show Jean-Michel Trogneux, before she transitioned into Brigitte Trogneux. They are not genuine.

The viral photos were edited from a photo that was taken by Abaca Press on 4 June 2019, showing Brigitte Macron meeting with players and staff at Clairefontaine-en-Yvelines, southwest of Paris, during the French women national football team’s preparation for FIFA World Cup 2019 in France.

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

Fact #8 : Candace Owens Provided No Evidence

Finally, I should point out that Candace Owens provided no actual evidence that Brigitte Macron was born a man, beyond the debunked claims from years ago… and her claim that Brigitte Macron was unable to produce any photos of herself in the first 30 years of her life.

Guys, how easy to debunk this – if you say Candace, no, actually you lived as a man for 30 years, I’ve lived 30 years: I’m going to show you every photo of every year that I’ve lived. Here’s me in college right, here’s me while I was pregnant with my children. Here’s me and my husband on our wedding day.

There would be so many photos that Brigitte should have at her disposal if this is false. Nope – they’re just calling everybody wrong and backwards and transphobic. Just produce the photos.

Instead, the only photos they have produced that are circulating in the media are the photos that I just showed you. And, as I said, the first photo she looks more like the Jean-Michel who she claims is actually her brother, who she won’t just present to the public. If that is in fact your brother, please just go on a walk with him so we can capture it.

It must be a Millennial “thing” (Candace Owens was born in 1989) to take photos of everything, all the time, to share with the world on social media. It’s easy for people today to demand – “photo, or it didn’t happen”.

The thing is – Brigitte Trogneux was born in 1953, and she was not fortunate enough back in those “good old days” to own a smartphone, or have access to social media. Even digital cameras were not common until the late 1990s.

Frankly, even if Brigitte Macron shared any photo she took as a child, conspiracists will likely insist that the photos were doctored, or of a different girl. Hence, the onus lies with the accusers to prove their claims.

These claims were revived in March 2024, by American conservative commentator Candace Owens on her Daily Wire show.

Proven : Why Brigitte Macron Is Not Jean-Michel Trogneux!

This is yet another example of fake news created or promoted by conspiracy theorists, and here are the reasons why, with the help of Nicolas Faure and Jonathan Moadab!

French journalist Jonathan Moadab started his own investigation in 2021, when those rumours first went viral. At first, he believed that Brigitte could really be Jean-Michel, but he soon found out that they are two different people from the same family!

Fact #1 : Brigitte Trogneux’s Birth Was Announced In Newspaper!

Let me start by pointing out that after Brigitte Marie-Claude Trogneux was born on 13 April 1953, her family announced it in the local newspaper:

SOCIAL NOTEBOOK

Anne-Marie, Jean-Claude, Mary-vonne, Monique and Jean-Michel TROGNEUX have the great joy of announcing the birth of their little sister Brigitte. Amiens, 1, rue Delambre.

CARNET MONDAIN

Anne-Marie, Jean-Claude, Maryvonne, Monique et Jean-Michel TROGNEUX ont la grande joie de vous annoncer la naissance de leur petite sœur Brigitte. Amiens, 1, rue Delambre.

The newspaper announcement specifically stated that her name was indeed, Brigitte at birth, and that she was born a female. You will also note that it mentioned her brother – Jean-Michel.

The carnival should have stopped for anyone who bothered to dig a bit deeper into this story, but no… this photo must be fake, or the Trogneuxs or Macrons must have used a time machine to go back to 1953 and pay for that fake announcement to be printed!

Recommended : Is Justin Trudeau planning to BAN Christianity in Canada?!

Fact #2 : Jean-Michel Trogneux Was Born Earlier + Still Alive!

In January 2022, Jonathan Moadab obtained an extract from Jean-Michel’s official birth certificate, showing that he was born as a male, at 4 o’clock on 11 February 1945. That’s 8 years before his sister, Brigitte Trogneux!

In addition, he found that Jean-Michel Trogneux was listed on the French electoral roll in 2022, which confirms that he still exists as a separate person from Brigitte Macron (née Trogneux).

But of course, these can be faked, right? The Illuminati and the New World Order can make short work of such documents, no?

Fact #3 : Jean-Michel Trogneux Married After Brigitte!

The supplementary update in the birth certificate extract also stated that Jean-Michel Henri Trogneux married and subsequently divorced Véronique Christine Dominique in 1980 and 1987 respectively.

Jean-Michel, therefore, cannot possibly be Brigitte Trogneux since his sister married her first husband, André-Louis Auzière, on 22 June 1974 – more than 5 years earlier!

Recommended : Is Kate Middleton Planning To Retire From Royal Duties?!

Fact #4 : Brigitte Trogneux Witnessed Her Brother’s Wedding!

On top of that, Moadab obtained a copy of this administrative document, which appears to show that Brigitte attended her brother’s wedding to Véronique Christine Dominique!

Could both Jean-Michel and Brigitte Trogneux have attended the wedding as the same person at the same time? That would be quite the miracle!

Fact #5 : Jean-Michel Trogneux Did Not Disappear!

The conspiracy theory claims that Jean-Michel Henri Trogneux disappeared in the 1980s. That’s not true. While Jean-Michel Trogneux is a very private person, he was actually seen on television with French President Emmanuel Macron!

Jonathan Moadab asked two different friends of Jean-Michel Trogneux, who never met each other, to confirm that that man in the video was Jean-Michel Trogneux. Both persons “vigorously stated that Jean-Michel Trogneux existed, and that he was the man in those images“.

Finally, Jonathan Moadab went to Jean-Michel Trogneux’s house, and rang his doorbell. Naturally, Jean-Michel was not happy to see him, and asked him to leave. But he actually met the man himself, and confirmed that he does indeed exist.

Fact #6 : Jean-Michel + Brigitte Won Their Libel Lawsuit!

In February 2022, Jean-Michel Henri Trogneux joined his sister Brigitte Macron, and her three children, in filing a libel lawsuit against the two women who made those transgender claims. They also also filed a (criminal) complaint for libel.

Obviously, it would not be possible for Jean-Michel to jointly file the lawsuit with Brigitte Macron, if they are one and the same person!

On Tuesday, 14 February 2023, the judicial court in Lisieux convicted the two women of libel, and fined them €2,000 each. Those fines were later reduced on appeal, but they both remain convicted of libel.

Is Justin Trudeau planning to BAN Christianity in Canada?!

Is the Trudeau administration planning to BAN Christianity in Canada?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Justin Trudeau Plans To BAN Christianity In Canada!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that the Trudeau administration planning to ban Christianity in Canada!

Trudeau Regime to BAN Christianity in Canada Under Radical New ‘Hate Speech’ Laws

Recommended : Is Bill Gates recruiting 2M Indians to control Internet using AI?!

 

Truth : Justin Trudeau Is Not Planning To Ban Christianity In Canada!

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

Fact #1 : Bill C-367 Has Nothing To Do With Trudeau

Let me start by pointing out that Bill C-367 has nothing to do with the Trudeau government, or the Liberal Party of Canada.

C-367 is a private member’s bill called An Act to amend the Criminal Code (promotion of hatred or antisemitism). You can read it in full here, and keep track of it here.

It was tabled at the Canadian Parliament on 28 November 2023, by Yves-François Blanchet, the leader of Bloc Québécois (BQ) – a different Canadian political party that has nothing to do with the Trudeau government.

So why would anyone claim that it is the Trudeau government that is trying to use C-367 to ban Christianity???

Fact #2 : Bill C-367 Targets Hate Speech

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that Bill C-367 will make it “illegal for any person to quote the Bible on Canadian soil“. That’s not true.

According to Bloc Québécois spokeswoman Joanie Riopel, Bill C-367 would “remove religious exemptions for the crimes of public incitement of hate, and wilful promotion of hatred and anti-Semitism“.

She said that Blanchet introduced the bill after an imam called on God to “exterminate” the “enemies of the people of Gaza”, while leading a prayer at a pro-Palestinian demonstration in Montreal in October 2023.

The bill provides for the removal of paragraphs … of the Canadian Criminal Code, which allow anyone to hide under the cloak of religion in the context of public incitement to hatred.

To be clear – Bill C-367 was introduced because of what a Muslim imam said, and does not ban people from quoting the Bible. It only targets people using religion in their hate speech.

Christians (and people of other religions) can still say anything they want, even if Bill C-367 is passed, as long as they do not incite hatred. Christians need not fear it, unless they actually believe it is a Christian tenet to incite hatred???

Recommended : Did Bill Gates Say India’s Digital ID Must Be Mandatory In US?!

Fact #3 : Bill C-367 Does Not Even Mention Christianity

To be clear – Bill C-367 does not mention Christianity or any religion. It only seeks to repeal two paragraphs in the Criminal Code of Canada (archive) in reference to the “public incitement of hatred“, “wilful promotion of hatred“, and “wilful promotion of antisemitism“:

Paragraph 319(3)(b):

(3) No person shall be convicted of an offence under subsection (2)

(b) if, in good faith, the person expressed or attempted to establish by an argument an opinion on a religious subject or an opinion based on a belief in a religious text;

Paragraph 319(3.1)(b):

(3.1) No person shall be convicted of an offence under subsection (2.1)

(b) if, in good faith, they expressed or attempted to establish by an argument an opinion on a religious subject or an opinion based on a belief in a religious text;

In other words – Bill C-367 simply wants to remove protection for people using their religious beliefs to wilfully incite and promote hatred and/or anti-semitism.

Only people who believe that they should have the right to incite hatred and/or anti-semitism using their religious beliefs will need to worry about Bill C-367.

Fact #4 : Bill C-367 Has Minimal Effect On Religious Expression

If passed, Bill C-367 will, no doubt, limit religious people from inciting and promoting hate. However, it will have “minimal effect on religious expression”.

According to Richard Moon, a law professor art the University of Windsor, the proposed amendments would have minimal effect on religious expression since they would only apply to hate speech.

Moon explained that someone who calls the LGBTQ lifestyle “sinful”, for example, would not meet the legal threshold for incitement or promotion of hatred… unless they actually advocate for the extermination of certain groups, or mischaracterise them in a way that could lead to ostracisation.

It’s not going to shut down general Christian speech. We’re talking about really extreme speech.

In other words, Bill C-367 probably won’t even prevent The People’s Voice from continuing to post articles claiming that Pope Francis ordered Christian to pray to Satan!

Did Bill Gates Order Govts To Replace Farmers With AI Bots?!

Did Bill Gates and the WEF just order world governments to replace human farmers with AI smart farming bots?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bill Gates Ordered Governments To Replace Farmers With AI Bots!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that Bill Gates and the WEF just ordered world governments to replace human farmers with AI smart farming bots!

Bill Gates Urges Govt’s To Replace Farmers With AI ‘Smart Farming’ Bots

Recommended : Is Bill Gates recruiting 2M Indians to control Internet using AI?!

 

Truth : Bill Gates Did Not Order Governments To Replace Farmers With AI 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 + WEF Did Not Order Governments To Replace Farmers

Let me start by pointing out that Bill Gates and/or the World Economic Forum (WEF) did not order world governments to replace farmers with AI smart farming robots.

If that actually happened, it would have been reported worldwide by the mainstream media. It would have also created a firestorm of criticism by right-wing conservatives, human rights activists, etc. Yet nothing of the sort happened – that’s because it’s all made up.

Frankly, the idea is ludicrous. There are no AI-controlled smart farming robots that can replace all farmers!

Needless to say, The People’s Voice article offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim that Bill Gates and/or the WEF ordered world governments to replace human farmers with AI-controlled smart farming robots!

Fact #2 : India Did Not Use Bill Gates’ AI Smart Farming Technology

The People’s Voice article claimed that Bill Gates praised India’s experiments with his AI-driven “smart farming” technology in his March 2024 Gates Notes on his trip to India. That’s utter nonsense.

Bill Gates only spoke about India’s Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI), and how it allowed Indian government agriculture experts send advice and real-time updates to 6.5 million farmers using phones. As a result – farmers were losing 90% less of their crops to pests than they used to!

Smart faming: I got to see India’s DPI in action when I toured an agricultural monitoring center in Bhubaneswar. At this facility, government agriculture experts send advice and real-time updates to 6.5 million farmers via phone. Since this center opened, local farmers are losing 90 percent less of their crops to pests than they used to.

To be clear – Bill Gates did not develop India’s DPI, or its smart farming concept.

Recommended : Did Bill Gates Say India’s Digital ID Must Be Mandatory In US?!

Fact #3 : Bill Gates Did Not Even Mention AI

On top of that, Bill Gates did not even mention AI or Artificial Intelligence even once in his post on his trip to India!

So why would any claim that he wants world governments to “follow India’s lead in embracing” his “AI-driven smart farming” technology???

Fact #4 : Farmers are Already Using Robots

While the article suggests a dystopian future where a single person can use a fleet of drones to manage an entire farm, the truth is – it is the future, and it is a better future for all.

For one thing – most people would prefer not to work in 3D (dirty, dangerous, and difficult) jobs like farming, resulting a shortage of labour in the agriculture industry. That’s why many farmers in the developed world already use robots, drones, and other smart systems to help them manage their farms with minimal manpower!

Such technologies also help empower independent farmers. By improving the farm’s production while reducing its costs, it helps them remain in business, and fend off large agro businesses.

Fact #5 : Bill Gates Screenshot Is Fake

The cover image used by The People’s Voice article and video has a screenshot which purportedly shows Bill Gates posting on X (formerly Twitter) that:

AI is superior to humans in every conceivable way.

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

If he actually posted that AI is (already) superior to humans in every conceivable way, it would have been reported by the worldwide media. But of course, that didn’t happen, because he never posted it.

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

Did Insider Reveal WEF Global Famine False Flag Op?!

Did an insider just reveal that the WEF is planning a global famine false flag operation?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Insider Reveals WEF Global Famine False Flag Op!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that an insider just revealed that the WEF is planning a global famine false flag operation!

WEF Insider Reveals The ‘New 9/11’ Will Be a ‘Global Famine’

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

 

Truth : There Is No WEF Global Famine False Flag Op!

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

Fact #1 : It Was An EU Simulation

Let me start by pointing out that there was no WEF global famine false flag operation. In fact, it did not even involve the World Economic Forum (WEF)!

It was just a “war game”, in which European Union and government officials, food security experts, industry representatives and a few journalists simulated “what might happen, and help design policies aimed at prevention and response”.

Just because someone runs a war game on food security (like CNA in December 2015), it doesn’t mean they are planning to launch a false flag operation. It merely means they want to simulate the situation, so they can see what policies / decisions work, and what won’t.

Fact #2 : War Games Are Common

War games aren’t even extraordinary – governments, militaries, think tanks, and even corporations often run such simulations to simulate “worst case scenarios”, so they can create contingency and/or mitigation plans to deal with such “potential problems”.

In fact, the Peace Corps even created a Food Security Game for kids to learn how food insecurity affects populations in different ways!

Fact #3 : EU Global Famine War Game Was Publicly Reported

The People’s Voice article appears to suggest that a WEF insider revealed the dastardly plan to create a global famine. That’s utter nonsense – this global famine war game was publicly reported by Bloomberg, and was even reposted on Yahoo, and many other websites!

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim that an insider revealed the WEF plan to launch a global famine false flag operation!

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

Fact #4 : WEF Was Not Mentioned In Bloomberg Report

The People’s Voice article appears to be based on a Yahoo reposting of the Bloomberg report on the EU food security war-game.

If you read the Yahoo / Bloomberg article, you will see that the World Economic Forum (WEF) was not even mentioned once. Neither were Klaus Schwab or Bill Gates mentioned in that report.

So why would anyone tie the WEF, Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates to the EU global famine war-game? Is it possible that they were “name dropped” to trigger conspiracists, and go viral???

Fact #5 : 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!

Did Jose Ibarra Enter US Under Donald Trump’s DED Program?!

Did Jose Ibarra, who allegedly murdered Laken Riley, enter the US under President Donald Trump’s DED program?!

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

 

Claim : Jose Ibarra Entered US Under Donald Trump’s DED Program!

Some people are claiming or suggesting that Jose Ibarra, the Venezuelan migrant who allegedly murdered Laken Riley, entered the US under the Deferred Enforced Departure program that President Donald Trump issued on the last full day of his Presidency.

Andrew : Laken Riley’s alleged murderer was let in under Trump and can someone please remind Raphael
@tedcruz that he’s literally an *immigrant* of *Hispanic* descent

Recommended : Was Ukrainian Plot To Assassinate Donald Trump Just Foiled?!

 

Truth : Jose Ibarra Did Not Enter US Under Donald Trump’s DED Program!

Let’s take a look at the claim that Jose Ibarra entered the US under Donald Trump’s DED program, and see what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Donald Trump Issued Venezuela DED On His Last Full Day

First, let me start with a quick recap on the DED program that Donald Trump issued for Venezuela.

The Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) program offers temporary legal status for 18 months to Venezuelans fleeing the humanitarian crisis brought on by Nicolás Maduro’s regime. The DED is similar to the Temporary Protected Status (TPS), which protects recipients from deportation, and allows them to get work permits.

While Trump considered issuing a DED for Venezuela for several years, he refused to issue one until his last full day in office – 19 January 2021.

Fact #2 : DED For Venezuelans Have Some Limits

The DED that Donald Trump issued not only give Venezuelan migrants in the United States protection from deportation, it also gives them the right to seek employment. However, it wasn’t a blank cheque, and had some stipulations.

Pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct the foreign relations of the United States, I have determined that it is in the foreign policy interest of the United States to defer the removal of any national of Venezuela, or alien without nationality who last habitually resided in Venezuela, subject to the conditions and exceptions provided below.

Recommended : Does Viral Photo Show Stacks Of Joe Biden Ballots?!

Fact #3 : Jose Ibarra Did Not Qualify For DED

The DED that Donald Trump issued on his last full day of office was specifically limited to Venezuelan citizens who was present in the United States on 20 January 2021.

Jose Ibarra was first arrested with his girlfriend, Layling Franco, and her 5 year-old son, by US Border Patrol in El Paso, Texas, on 8 September 2022, after they illegally crossed the border.

Since he entered the US more than 1.5 years after that DED was issued, Jose Ibarra did not qualify for protection under the DED that Donald Trump issued.

Fact #4 : DED For Venezuela Expired In July 2022

Even if Jose Ibarra was somehow present in the United States on 20 January 2021, he was no longer protected by the DED that Donald Trump signed, because that expired 18 months after it was issued – on July 20, 2022.

As I pointed out above, the Deferred Enforce Departure that Donald Trump signed on his last full day of office lasted only 18 months. From 21 July 2022 onwards, there was no longer any DED protection for Venezuelan illegal migrants in the United States, and they can be deported.

ALERT: Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Venezuela expired on July 20, 2022. Venezuelans and individuals without nationality who last habitually resided in Venezuela who wish to apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under the existing designation, including those who were covered under the January 2021 grant of DED, may apply for TPS before the registration period ends Sept. 9, 2022. You must meet all eligibility requirements for TPS Venezuela before we may grant your application.

DED Period: Jan. 20, 2021 – July 20, 2022

Fact #5 : Donald Trump Did Not Issue TPS For Venezuela

Some have pointed out that Jose Ibarra entered the US before TPS (Temporary Protected Status) expired for Venezuela.

As he was caught by US Border Patrol on 8 September 2022, it is possible that he did not manage to apply for TPS by the deadline of 9 September – the very next day.

But even if Jose Ibarra successfully applied for TPS by that deadline, Donald Trump would not have been responsible for that. The US President can issue DED, but TPS can only be granted by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Leaked AstraZeneca audio show pandemic was preplanned?!

Did leaked AstraZeneca audio show that the COVID-19 pandemic was preplanned years in advance?! Let’s take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Leaked AstraZeneca Audio Show Pandemic Was Preplanned!

People are sharing a video which shows Sasha Latypova and Clayton Morris discussing how leaked audio of an AstraZeneca meeting show that the COVID-19 pandemic was preplanned years in advance!

Chief Nerd : 👀 Sasha Latypova Has New Evidence Showing the COVID Countermeasures Were ‘Preset Years Before’ the Pandemic Occurred

“The audio is from an internal meeting in AstraZeneca…VP Mark Esser says we started working with the Dept. of Defense Pandemic Preparedness Program in 2017. He also mentions that they were approached by Dept. of Defense…with a proposal that they would be working on something like this with the DoD to develop vaccines and therapeutics within 60 days of the DoD identifying a pathogenic virus that can cause global pandemics.”

Redacted : BREAKING! They PLANNED the whole thing years in advance. | Redacted w Natali and Clayton Morris

Here is an abridged transcript of the video between Clayton Morris (CM) and Sasha Latypova (SL):

CM : What really happened here?

SL : Well, the truth turns out this [COVID-19 pandemic] was all preset way… years before. From this leaked audio, but it’s not the only source, this is just the confirmatory evidence that I obtained.

Recommended : Sasha Latypova Vax Claims On Epoch TV Fact Checked!

 

Claim : Leaked AstraZeneca Audio Show Pandemic Was Preplanned!

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

Fact #1 : Sasha Latypova Did Not Work For Big Pharma

In the video, Clayton Morris referred to Sasha Latypova’s years of work in the pharmaceutical industry:

Before we get to the tape, you’ve worked, obviously, in the pharmaceutical industry with a lot of clients for many, many years, so you know this intimately.

However, there is no indication that Sasha Latypova ever worked in the pharmaceutical industry, never mind Big Pharma. According to her own LinkedIn profile, she only appears to have worked in the medical device industry, and then only in the management capacity:

1997 – 1999 : Graduated with MBA from The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth

March 2006 – October 2016 : Co-Founder and Executive VP of iCardiac Technologies, Inc.

December 2014 to present : Co-Founder, Executive VP and Director of Clerio Vision, Inc.

As far as I can tell – Sasha Latypova does not have any medical training, or experience with viruses or vaccines. It also looks like she never worked for any of the Big Pharma companies. How does that translate into working in the pharmaceutical industry for “many, many years”???

Fact #2 : 2017 Pandemic Prevention Program Did Not Target COVID-19

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense initiated its Pandemic Prevention Platform (P3) in 2017 (archive), aiming to develop “an integrated technology platform” to “halt the spread of any viral disease outbreak within 60 days“.

Its initial program outline specifically pointed out that the goal of the P3 platform was to cut the time to develop countermeasures to a viral outbreak from years to just “weeks”, using DNA- and RNA-based technologies.

Nowhere in its program description did it once refer to COVID-19, or the SARS-CoV-2. That’s because the novel coronavirus would not appear until the end of 2019, and the world informed on 31 December 2019.

In other words – the DARPA P3 program is not evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic was preplanned years in advance. It is called “being prepared for a future disaster”. Just because you build a bomb shelter does not mean you are planning to launch a war!

Recommended : Did US Intentionally Release COVID Virus In Wuhan?!

Fact #3 : AstraZeneca Audio Does Not Show Pandemic Was Preplanned

Sasha Latypova actually shared the leaked AstraZeneca audio on 7 February 2024, but it didn’t go viral… because it was a “nothingburger”.

Anyone who listens to the leaked audio, or reads the transcript below will quickly realise that it does not show that the COVID-19 pandemic was pre-planned years in advance by the US Department of Defense, or Big Pharma companies like AstraZeneca.

https://www.techarp.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/Sasha-Latypova-Clayton-Morris-evidence-DOD-AstraZeneca-vaccine.mp3?_=1

Here is a transcript of the audio, which is very long:

Mark (the introducer) : … [Mark] Esser who has been the architect of the long-acting antibody against Covid-19. Mark, back to you.

In short, the leaked AstraZeneca audio does not show any pre-planning of the COVID-19 pandemic. It only gives us an inside look at how pharmaceutical teams can now quickly develop products like neutralising antibodies, and vaccines, against a novel (new) virus.

Fact #4 : AstraZeneca Audio Showed How It Developed Evusheld

The truth is – the leaked audio actually detailed how AstraZeneca quickly developed Evusheld (AZD7442) – its combination of tixagevimab and cilgavimab – two long-acting antibodies (LAAB) against COVID-19.

Even so, it did not take AstraZeneca 60 days to develop and ship Evusheld, as envisioned by the P3 project.  In the end, it took AstraZeneca almost two years to get Evusheld approved by the FDA. Its development started in February 2020, and Evusheld only received its FDA EUA on 8 December 2021.

To be clear – that’s still very fast, and demonstrates the effectiveness of DARPA’s Pandemic Prevention Platform (P3). Again, it does not show that DARPA or AstraZeneca planned the COVID-19 pandemic back in 2017.

Yet, there was no such news. Not even right-wing conservative websites or pundits mentioned such a shocking event. That’s because – it never happened. Victoria Nuland and/or her husband were not arrested by the US Marines, or any law enforcement agency, for any reason.

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

Fact #2 : US Marines Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that US Marines were sent to arrest civilians like Victoria Nuland and her husband. In fact, US Marines cannot even arrest military personnel!

Civilians like Victoria Nuland and her husband, Robert Kagan, would have been taken into custody 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.

Even if either Victoria Nuland or her husband were somehow military personnel in the Marine Corps (they are not), they would have been arrested by US Marine Corps Military Police, not the marines themselves!

Fact #3 : Victoria Nuland Isn’t Retiring From Politics

Victoria Nuland isn’t retiring from politics, as claimed by the Real Raw News article, because she isn’t a politician. She is a diplomat who is currently serving as the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, under the US State Department.

On 5 March 2024, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced that Victoria Nuland intends to step down as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs.

The next day, the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs (CIPA) announced that Victoria Nuland will join its faculty as the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Professor in the Practice of International Diplomacy, starting 1 July 2024.

In short – Victoria Nuland’s retirement as Under Secretary of State was not a cover-up. She is relinquishing that role for a teaching position in Columbia CIPA.

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

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

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

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

Did Joe Biden Just Propose To Start Vaccinating America?!

Did Joe Biden just propose to start vaccinating America in his re-election pitch?! Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Joe Biden Just Proposed To Start Vaccinating America!

Some people are sharing a video of US President Joe Biden on X (formerly Twitter), alleging that stated that he just proposed to start vaccinating America in his re-election pitch!

RNC Research : Biden makes his re-election pitch: “We have to start off by vaccinating America!”

Recommended : Is Joe Biden Reinstating Face Mask + Lockdowns?!

 

Truth : Joe Biden Did Not Propose To Start Vaccinating America!

Let’s take a closer look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Joe Biden Did Not Propose To Start Vaccinating America!

Let me start by pointing out that Joe Biden did not propose to start vaccinating America.

It is unknown if those people promoting that claim have hearing problems, or they are trying to gaslight other people. What is certain is that – Joe Biden never said that in the video.

If you watch the video, and listen carefully, you will hear him referring to vaccinating America in the past tense:

Folks, we’ve come through pretty tough times, and I know, I know we got a lot more to do. We had to stay off… we had to start off by vaccinating America. Trump stood flat-footed during that period of time before the pandemic.

To be clear – Joe Biden was speaking in the past tense, referring to his push to vaccinate America against COVID-19 early in his term.

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

Fact #2 : Donald Trump Did Promote COVID-19 Vaccines

Let me throw a bone to right-wing conservatives, who had to stoop so low as to mishear what Joe Biden actually said – former President Donald Trump did promote COVID-19 vaccines.

In fact, let me give him credit speeding up the development and approval of COVID-19 vaccines through Operation Warp Speed. He would later downplay the COVID-19 vaccines in his final months in office, and both Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in private.

But former President Donald Trump backtracked (again?) and recommended that Americans get vaccinated against COVID-19 in March 2021.

I would recommend it. And I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly.

But again, we have our freedoms and we have to live by that and I agree with that also. But it is a great vaccine. It is a safe vaccine and it is something that works.

Later in December 2021, he would tell his fans that he also took the COVID-19 booster dose, as recommended by the CDC. At the same Dallas event, he told the crowd to take credit for helping to save lives using the COVID-19 vaccines:

Look, we did something that was historic. We saved tens of millions of lives worldwide. We together, all of us — not me, we — we got a vaccine done, three vaccines done, and tremendous therapeutics.

This was going to ravage the country far beyond what it is right now. Take credit for it. Take credit for it…. Don’t let them take it away. Don’t take it away from ourselves.

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

Fact #3 : Joe Biden Referred To Donald Trump’s Disbanding NSC Directorate

Right after stating that he started his administration by vaccinating America against COVID-19, Joe Biden referred to the Trump Administration’s decision in 2018 to dismantle a National Security Council (NSC) directorate at the White House that was charged with preparing for when, not if, another pandemic arrives.

The NSC Directorate of Global Health Security and Biodefense was created by former President Barack Obama in 2016, in response to the 2014 Ebola outbreak; and survived the transition to the Trump Administration. However, it was disbanded in May 2018 by John Bolton, right after President Donald Trump appointed him as head of the National Security Council.

So when President Donald Trump said that the SARS-CoVo-2 coronavirus “came out of nowhere” and “blindsided the world”, public health officials and national security experts disagreed, as they had been warning about coming pandemics for years. They also criticised his Administration’s decision to disband the directorate.

It would be nice if the office was still there. I wouldn’t necessarily characterize it as a mistake (to eliminate the unit). I would say we worked very well with that office.

– Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institute of Health, March 2020

One year later I was mystified when the White House dissolved the office, leaving the country less prepared for pandemics like COVID-19

– Beth Cameron, the first director of the Directorate of Global Health Security and Biodefense, March 2020

It was only when President Joe Biden took power in January 2021, that the Directorate of Global Health Security and Biodefence was reinstated.

Yet again, it showed the Joe Biden was speaking in the past tense. He was contrasting his actions versus those of former President Donald Trump.

Did Elon Musk Wrongly Implicate NYC Migrant In Police Assault?!

Did Elon Musk wrongly suggest NYC migrant Jhoan Boada was set free and given a free ticket to California, after beating up police officers in Times Square?!

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

 

Claim : NYC Migrant Jhoan Boada Freed After Beating Police!

In a viral post on X (formerly Twitter), Elon Musk appeared to suggest that NYC migrant Jhoan Boada was set free and given a free ticket to California, after beating up police officers in Times Square!

Elon Musk : Illegals beat up American police officers in Times Square, got out of jail for free and, instead of being deported, were given free tickets to California …

Why?

While the post did not mention the illegals he was referring to, Elon Musk attached a photo of NYC migrant Jhoan Boada showing his infamous middle finger salute as President Joe Biden awards him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

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

 

Truth : NYC Migrant Jhoan Boada Was Exonerated Of All Charges!

Let’s take a closer look at Elon Musk’s post and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : NYC Migrant Jhoan Boada Was Exonerated Of All Charges!

Let me start by pointing out that the NYC migrant in photo that Elon Musk posted, Jhoan Boada, was exonerated of all charges in connection with the Times Square brawl involving a group of migrants and NYPD police officers.

On Saturday, 27 January 2024, two officers and a lieutenant from the NYPD Midtown South Precinct approached a group of men outside a migrant shelter on West 42nd Street at around 8:30 PM. When they tried to arrest one of the men, several other migrants attacked them.

Surveillance video recorded several migrants kicking and punching the NYPD officers, while trying to pry them off a man the police had taken to the ground. Seven migrants were charged for their alleged roles in that fight.

Jhoan Boada, a native of Venezuela, was one of those who were arrested and charged for his alleged participation in the brawl. When Boada infamously showed bystanders the middle fingers after leaving his arraignment in court, he would become the face of the mostly right-wing outrage over the incident.

However, just over a month later – on 2 March 2024, the Manhattan District Attorney dropped all charges against Jhoan Boada, calling it a case of mistaken identity. As Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg announced:

Our investigation has revealed that Marcelino Estee, not Jhoan Boada, is the individual described in this complaint, wearing the black & white jacket with pink shoes, committing this assault.

We are therefore moving to dismiss this complaint against Jhoan Boada.

To be clear, Jhoan Boada – the infamous NYC migrant who flipped the bird and made right-wing conservatives so outraged, is completely innocent of the crime. He was not involved in the Times Square brawl with NYPD officers.

Fact #2 : Jhoan Boada Photo Was Edited

Just in case you are wondering, the viral photo of Jhoan Boada showing his two middle fingers while receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Joe Biden isn’t genuine. It was photoshopped.

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

Fact #3 : Jhoan Boada Was Not Given Free Ticket To California

There is no evidence that Jhoan Boada was given any free ticket to flee to California, after being set free.

There is also no reason for Jhoan Boada to flee to California because… he was exonerated of all charges!

No one, not even Elon Musk, provided any evidence that Jhoan Boada was given a free ticket to California.

Fact #4 : No NYC Migrant Suspect Received Free Tickets To California

The claim that those NYC migrant suspects were given free tickets to California also appears to be false.

On 1 February 2024, a New York City official told CNN that four of the suspects who were arrested and subsequently released were given bus tickets by a faith-based charity, and were en-route to Calexico, California.

However, the same senior law enforcement official backtracked two weeks later, stating that the New York City police no longer believed that the four men actually fled on a bus to California.

When police in Calexico visited an address provided by the charity, no one could identify the suspects. One of the suspects was later arrested in New York City on separate robbery charges. That led the police to believe that the tip was yet another “misidentification”.

Did Joe Biden Teach The 2nd Amendment For 12 Years?!

Did Joe Biden teach the 2nd Amendment for 12 years, as he claimed in his State of the Union address?!

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

 

Claim : Joe Biden Did Not Teach 2nd Amendment For 12 Years!

After US President Joe Biden stated that he taught the 2nd Amendment for 12 years, some people immediately claimed that he never taught a single subject or class!

Tony Kinnett : President Biden claimed that he “taught the 2nd amendment for 12 years.”

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

 

Truth : Joe Biden Taught Constitutional Law For 17 Years!

Let’s take a closer look at Joe Biden’s claim and find out what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Joe Biden Did Not Teach At UPenn

Let me start by pointing out that Joe Biden was the Benjamin Franklin Presidential Professor of Practice at the University of Pennsylvania for four years – from 2017 to 2021. He was also appointed as a Senior Fellow at the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy at the same time (source).

As Presidential Practice Professor, Biden held joint appointments in the Annenberg School for Communication and the School of Arts and Sciences, with a secondary affiliation in the Wharton School.

However, none of them were teaching positions. The position of Benjamin Franklin Presidential Professor of Practice was only honorary, and did not involve any teaching, although Joe Biden shared his insights and wisdom with thousands of Penn students through seminars, talks, and classroom visits:

As our Benjamin Franklin Presidential Professor of Practice, the Vice President helped to expand Penn’s global outreach, while sharing his wisdom and insights with thousands of Penn students through seminars, talks and classroom visits.

– Ron Ozio, director of media relations at the University of Pennsylvania

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

Fact #2 : Joe Biden Taught Constitutional Law For 17 Years

That said, Joe Biden taught constitutional law as an adjunct law professor at the Widener University Delaware Law School for about 17 years.

He taught constitutional law for one semester per year by himself for 12 years, and another 5 years with a co-teacher. This was confirmed by Widener University Delaware Law School dean, Rodney Smolla (source):

Senator Biden began teaching at the Delaware Law School in the fall of 1991. He taught a course in constitutional law on Saturdays, one semester each year. He taught the course by himself until 2003, when he was was joined by a co-teacher, Professor Robert Hayman of the Delaware Law faculty.

– Rodney Smolla, University of Pennsylvania Delaware Law School dean and professor of law

According to Smolla, Joe Biden last taught at the Delaware Law School in the fall of 2008. In short, Joe Biden taught constitutional law for 17 years, 12 of which were on his own.

Even if you only wish to count solo teaching, Joe Biden is correct in claiming that he caught the 2nd Amendment (which would be part of constitutional law) for 12 years. But technically, he taught constitutional law (which would include the 2nd Amendment) for 17 years.

There is even photographic evidence. Below is a photo (source) of then-Senator Joe Biden leading a discussion with students at the Delaware Law School campus, as an adjunct professor.

Did Mel Gibson Say Elites Will Die To Make Way For Antichrist?!

Did Mel Gibson say the global elites like King Charles and Kate Middleton are being killed to make way for the Antichrist, Prince William?!

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

 

Claim : Mel Gibson Said Elites Will Die To Make Way For Antichrist!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that Mel Gibson said that the elites are dying or being sacrificed to make way for the Antichrist, who is purportedly Prince William!

Mel Gibson: Global Elites Will Keep Dying To Make Way For The Antichrist

Recommended : Did Mel Gibson Call Prince William The Antichrist?!

 

Claim : Mel Gibson Did Not Say Elites Will Die To Make Way For Antichrist!

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 Elites Are Dying To Make Way For Antichrist

This article by The People’s Voice appears to be linked to an earlier article, which claimed that Mel Gibson told his staff and associates that Prince William is the Antichrist, and the future king of the New World Order’s one world government.

However, a quick check showed that it is the only source for this claim of elites dying to make way for the Antichrist attributed to Mel Gibson. This is surprising since celebrity blogs and mainstream media outlets have, and certainly would have, reported on such controversial claims… if he actually made them.

Yet, no one else has apparently seen or heard Mel Gibson claim that elites are dying or being sacrificed to make way for the Antichrist! There is also no evidence Mel Gibson ever met Prince William twice, never mind actually seeing demonic entities trailing behind him.

Unfortunately, but perhaps not surprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claims.

Fact #2 : Kate Middleton Isn’t Dying Or Missing

The People’s Voice article claimed that Kate Middleton hasn’t been seen in public, or heard from, since 25 December, suggesting that she “may never return”, or “she will be a different fallen angel in the same body”.

Never mind it offered no evidence Kate Middleton was being killed or sacrificed to make Prince William the Antichrist… Kate Middleton was actually seen in public!

On 4 March 2024, paparazzi spotted Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, sitting in a vehicle being driven by her mother, Carol, near Windsor Castle. So she most definitely has not been sacrificed to make Prince William the Antichrist…

Is Taylor Swift Performing Satanic Rituals At Eras Tour?!

Claim : Taylor Swift Is Performing Satanic Rituals At Era Tour!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that an entertainment industry insider has revealed that Taylor Swift is performing Satanic rituals at her Eras Tour concerts!

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

 

Truth : Taylor Swift Is Not Performing Satanic Rituals At Era Tour!

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

Fact #1 : Shane Lynch Provided No Evidence

Let me start by pointing out that Shane Lynch, who was formerly a member of Boyzone, did indeed claim that Taylor Swift was performing “Satanic rituals” at her Eras Tour concerts.

I think when you’re looking at a lot of the artists out there, a lot of their stage shows are Satanic rituals live in front of 20,000 people without them realising and recognising. You’ll see a lot of hoods up and masks on and fire ceremonies.

Even down to Taylor Swift – one of the biggest artists in the world – you watch one of her shows and she has two or three different demonic rituals to do with the pentagrams on the ground, to do with all sorts of stuff on her stage. But to a lot of people it’s just art and that’s how people are seeing it, unfortunately.

However, Shane Lynch provided no evidence to back up his claims that Taylor Swift was performing two or three different “demonic rituals” at her Eras Tour concerts.

Wearing hoods or masks isn’t Satanic, neither are “fire ceremonies”, whatever those are. There is also no evidence of any pentagram on Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour stage at any venue.

Fact #2 : Devil’s Horns Are Not Satanic

The People’s Voice article called “the sign of the horns” a Satanic symbol. That’s not true.

The hand gesture that Taylor Swift flashed (and so did Ice Spice at the Super Bowl) is also referred to as “devil’s horns”. However, it is not demonic or Satanic. In fact, several cultures use it to ward off evil spirits!

It was popularised by Ronnie James Dio of the heavy metal band, Heaven & Hell and the rock band Black Sabbath, who copied it from his Italian grandmother who often used it. In the Italian culture, the sign of the horns is a protective gesture like the pentagram. Called el corna, it is used traditionally to ward off the “evil eye” (mallocio).

It’s not the devil’s sign like we’re here with the devil. … It’s to ward off the Evil Eye or to give the Evil Eye, depending on which way you do it. So it’s a bit like “knocking on wood.”

The sign of the horns is also used by Hindus and Buddhists. The hand gesture is called “Karana Mudrā“, and is used to “expel demons” and remove “sickness or negative thoughts“. So the showing the sign of the horns is actually the OPPOSITE of worshipping Satan or evil spirits.

In modern times, the devil’s horns / sign of the horns has become a common rock ‘n’ roll gesture, and a mainstream way of saying, “Hell, yeah!“, or “Rock on!

Did JAG Arrest Three Colorado Supreme Court Justices?!

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

 

Claim : JAG Arrested Three Colorado Supreme Court Justices!

On 28 February 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) which claimed that JAG arrested three Colorado Supreme Court justices for striking Donald Trump from the state’s primary elections!

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

JAG Arrests THIRD Criminal Colorado Supreme Court Justice

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

 

Truth : JAG Did Not Arrest Three Colorado Supreme Court Justices!

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

Fact #1 : JAG Did Not Arrest Any Supreme Court Justice

This is really silly, but it has to be said – no Colorado Supreme Court justice was arrested for voting to remove Donald Trump from the state ballots in the upcoming 2024 US Presidential elections.

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

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

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

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

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

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

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

Fact #3 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are Arrest Warrants Being Issued For WEF Global Leaders?!

Are arrest warrants being issued for WEF Young Global Leaders like Justin Trudeau?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Arrest Warrants Being Issued For WEF Young Global Leaders!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that arrest warrants are being issued for WEF Young Global Leaders like Justin Trudeau!

No Evidence Arrest Warrants Were Issued For WEF Young Global Leaders!

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

Fact #1 : Young Global Leaders Is Separate NGO

Let me start by pointing out that The Forum of Young Global Leaders (YGL) is a separate, non-profit organisation run by the World Economic Forum (WEF), but under the supervision of the Swiss government.

Young Global Leaders must be younger than 38 years old at the time of acceptance, and highly accomplished in their fields. Once selected, they serve six-year terms.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and former New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern are former Young Global Leaders. In fact, they are not even listed in the YGL alumni network!

Fact #2 : No Evidence Arrest Warrants Were Issued For YGLs

Approximately 100 Young Global Leaders are selected each year, and there are currently over 1,400 YGL members and alumni members.

However, there is no evidence that arrest warrants were issued against current or former Young Global Leaders for “crimes against humanity”.

If even a single arrest warrant was issued against any Young Global Leader for “crimes against humanity”, it would have gone viral, and reported globally.

Yet, there was no coverage by the mainstream media, and no social media outrage? Heck, even right-wing websites did not so much as squeak about arrest warrants being issued for Young Global Leaders???

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

Fact #3 : Hussain Najadi Was Not WEF Co-Founder

Pascal Najadi often claims that his father – Hussain Najadi, was a co-founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), together with Klaus Schwab.

However, Hussain Najadi has never claimed to be a co-founder of the WEF. In fact, his own autobiography – The Sea and the Hills, only stated that he had been “invited [by Schwab] to attend the Davos Economic Symposium“.

Fact #4 : Justin Trudeau Screenshot Is Fake

The cover image used by The People’s Voice article and video features a screenshot which purportedly shows the Justin Trudeau posting on X (formerly Twitter) that:

Independent media is the enemy – mass censorship is our weapon!

That is most definitely a fake screenshot, because there was no such post on X (formerly Twitter) by Justin Trudeau. On top of that, Justin Trudeau’s Twitter account has a grey checkmark, not a blue checkmark.

And it’s a really silly creation too – why would Justin Trudeau publicly reveal his evil, dastardly plans to take over the world like Pinky and the Brain???

Unfortunately, we will never know because The People’s Voice article never explained WHY, or provided any evidence that such a post ever existed!

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

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

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

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