Did Thailand Vow To Nullify Pfizer Vaccine Contracts?!

Did Thailand Vow To Nullify Pfizer Vaccine Contracts?!

Did Thailand vow to be the first country to declare the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine contracts “null and void”?!

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

 

Claim : Thailand Vow To Declare Pfizer Vaccine Contracts Null + Void!

A video of Professor Sucharit Bhakdi has gone viral on Twitter, claiming that Thailand is preparing to declare the Pfizer vaccine contracts null and void!

Top Thai authorities including advisors to the King have been in discussions with Prof. Sucharit Bhakdi and are prepared to see to it that the Pfizer contracts are declared null and void!!

No Evidence Thailand Vowed To Nullify Pfizer Vaccine Contracts!

There is really NO EVIDENCE that Thailand has vowed to be the first country in the world to declare the Pfizer vaccine contracts as null and void!

Fact #1 : The Video Was Edited To Remove Context

Like the second viral video, this video clip appears to be edited to remove some context. I confirmed that by watching and comparing the video clip to the full interview of Sucharit Bhakdi by Pascal Najadi.

It looks like the person who edited the video wanted to remove references to the fact that Bhakdi was talking to Thai activists and not Thai officials.

Here are my rough transcripts from the first video clip, with the removed parts highlighted in bold.

Let me tell you the wonderful thing that happened when we decided to go back to Thailand for a holiday, which was badly needed. This was the beginning of January this year. There are Thai activists in Thailand with whom we have been connected over the past year.

They said, if you come to Thailand… uh, I’m still a Thai by the way… I’m Thai-German… we will connect you with the authorities and advisors to the highest authorities in Thailand, and this is what happened.

So I have the opportunity, the first opportunity in three years, to talk to the top advisors of a government in any country.

And it was very, very impressive, because I laid out to them that this whole COVID-19 agenda is a fake, and why it is a fake, and I was able to lay out for them the proof that the COVID vaccinations were based on fraud.

The person who edited the video, also appears to be trying to scrub out the part where Bhakdi was referring to safety pharmacological studies in 2021 and 2022.

The EMA – European Medical Agencies – was asked again and again and again to reveal whether BioNTech Pfizer had ever performed any safety pharmacological study in 2021 and 2022, and the answer is available to us and to you.

The official answer submitted on the 18th of October of 2022. 18th of October, which we have at our disposal, the EMA declared officially that safety pharmacological studies were never performed. Never. And they were never deemed necessary. So now we have it.

It also appears that the first video was scrubbed to remove the part where Bhakdi stated that it was not the mRNA that was the problem, but the lipid packaging that protected it.

The person who edited the video also removed the part where Bhakdi said that the Thais were Googling information on the Pfizer-BioNTech contract. This would have alerted any viewer that Bhakdi was talking about Thai activists, and not Thai officials who would not need to Google such information.

[/su_note]

And when I told the Thais this, you know guys, they jumped up, they jumped up in the roof. And so they said Thailand is going to join Switzerland. Thailand is going to join Switzerland and show the world how to go, because the contract to buy millions of doses of that damn vaccine that is deadly, known to be deadly.

Not because of the mRNA, but just because of the lipids that are packaging the mRNA, that is enough to kill people. Not even the spike protein is necessary. You just have to take the packaging, and that it in itself is deadly. And that it in itself will cause anyone, will force anyone to say that nothing that is packaged in this deadly package can be safe. If the package itself is deadly, then you don’t have to ask what is in the package.

And then they said alright, and they were Googling and said, the contract was signed in Thailand with Pfizer-BioNTech and in this case, it was based on fraud because there were no safety studies and therefore, and it is now known that, this package is not safe. It is immaterial what is in in the package. It is not safe, because of the packaging.

And so they said to me – we will see to it that Thailand is the first country in the world that is going to declare this contract null, and nullify the contract. Which means that Pfizer BioNTech is going to have to pay back those billions to Thailand, with which Thailand will recompensate those peoples [sic] that have lost their existence.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Bhakdi Spoke To Thai Officials

As mentioned above, the viral video clip appears to have been edited to remove references to Thai activists, likely to convey the perception that Sucharit Bhakdi was speaking to Thai officials.

If you watch the full video or read the extended transcript above, Sucharit Bhakdi does not actually claim to have met any Thai official, never mind advisors to the royal family. He appears to have only met Thai activists who claimed that they can “connect” him with the authorities.

Fact #3 : No Evidence Thai Officials Plan To Nullify Pfizer Contracts

The full video, and the extended transcript above, shows that Sucharit Bhakdi appears to have spoken only with Thai activists, not Thai officials.

Therefore, there is no evidence Thailand is actually planning to nullify the Pfizer vaccine contracts. In fact, Bhakdi himself called for people to “start a movement” to “file a case against Pfizer-BioNTech“.

That would not be necessary if the Thai government is already planning to nullify the Pfizer vaccine contracts.

And if we are able in Thailand to start a movement to say, file a case against Pfizer-BioNTech that they pay for the damage they have done, let’s make it.

Fact #4 : Use Of Pfizer Vaccine Minimal In Thailand

It is odd that Sucharit Bhakdi is so focused on the Pfizer vaccine when the Moderna vaccine uses a similar mRNA and lipid nanoparticle delivery technology.

In any case, the use of Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines in Thailand is minimal. This is partly because the mainstay of the Thai COVID-19 vaccination programme was the AstraZeneca vaccine, that was eventually manufactured by Siam Bioscience (owned by King Vajiralongkorn himself).

But due to supply issues, Thailand imported and used large amounts of the Sinovac CoronaVac vaccine, and eventually the Sinopharm BIBP vaccine.

mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna only make up 5.7% of the COVID-19 vaccines delivered to the Thai government.

Vaccine Brand Doses Ordered Doses Delivered
Sinovac 31.1 million 26.52 million
AstraZeneca 61 million 25.5 million
Sinopharm 15 million 15 million
Pfizer 30 million 3.5 million
Moderna 13 million 560,200

Fact #5 : Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Was Evaluated In 2020

I should also touch on the claim that the safety of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was never tested.

Pfizer actually conducted their Phase 1/2 trial in 2020, testing the first participants on May 5, 2020, and posting the first date on August 20, 2020. That was followed up by the large Phase 3 trial, whose study was peer-reviewed and published in the New England Medical Journal in December 2020.

In other words, safety studies were carried out on the Pfizer vaccine in 2020, but not in 2021 or 2022 because it was the same vaccine.

It appears that the the first viral video was edited to removed the part about the EMA being asked whether Pfizer performed the safety tests in 2021 and 2022,  to convey the false perception that Pfizer never conducted safety tests at all.

The EMA – European Medical Agencies – was asked again and again and again to reveal whether BioNTech Pfizer had ever performed any safety pharmacological study in 2021 and 2022, and the answer is available to us and to you.

The official answer submitted on the 18th of October of 2022. 18th of October, which we have at our disposal, the EMA declared officially that safety pharmacological studies were never performed. Never. And they were never deemed necessary. So now we have it.

Diamond / Lynette Hardaway: Cause of Death Revealed!

The official cause of death for Diamond of Diamond and Silk has been revealed, and it was not COVID-19!

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

Updated @ 2023-01-29 : Added the official cause of death for Diamond, and claims Silk made at her memorial..
Updated @ 2023-01-12 : Added more details about Diamond’s condition before she died.

Originally posted @ 2023-01-11

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Truth : Lynette Hardaway / Diamond Did Not Die From COVID-19

Lynette Hardaway, better known as Diamond of the political commentator duo, Diamond and Silk, died on January 8, 2023.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Silk Suggested Diamond Was Poison By Vaccinated People!

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

Her memorial turned out to be truly memorable, with her sister, Silk, suggesting that her sister, Diamond, was poisoned by… vaccinated people!

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

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

 

AP Confirmed Diamond Died Of Heart Disease

Despite widespread speculation about how Diamond died, her family refused to reveal her cause of death, fuelling further speculation that they were trying to conceal an inconvenient truth.

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

But we finally can lay all speculation to rest.

On January 24, 2023, the Associated Press obtained a copy of Diamond’s death certificate, which confirmed Lynette Hardaway died of heart disease due to chronic high blood pressure (hypertension).

Pelosi DePape videos + call kill MAGA, QAnon claims!

The body camera and CCTV videos, as well as the 911 call, were just released, finally killing off MAGA and QAnon conspiracies about Paul Pelosi and David DePape!

 

Earlier : MAGA, QAnon Conspiracies On Paul Pelosi + David DePape

For months now, MAGA and QAnon personalities and supporters have promoted various conspiracy theories about Paul Pelosi and David DePape.

Some claimed that Paul Pelosi was having a lover’s tiff with his gay boyfriend, David DePape; while others claimed that DePape was a male prostitute that Pelosi hired.

Seattle Times even came up with a list of 21 American elected officials and candidates, and prominent personalities who spread conspiracy theories about Paul Pelosi and David DePape:

Elected Officials and Candidates

Sen. Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas : Amplified doubts that all facts were disclosed
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Republican of Georgia : Suggested Paul Pelosi knew his attacker.
Rep. Clay Higgins, Republican of Louisiana : Suggested the attack involved male prostitution
Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, Republican of Louisiana : Raised doubts about the details of the attack.
State Sen. Wendy Rogers, Republican of Arizona : Suggested the attack might have been staged.
State Rep. Anthony Sabatini, Republican of Florida : Suggested the Pelosis are hiding vital information.
Rep. Claudia Tenney, Republican of New York : Amplified a conspiracy theory about an extra marital gay affair.

Now : Pelosi DePape videos + call kill MAGA, QAnon conspiracy claims!

On Saturday, January 28, 2023, all those MAGA and QAnon conspiracy theories were dismissed as utter nonsense with the release of the body camera and CCTV videos, as well as the 911 call.

The evidence now definitively prove that all those MAGA and QAnon conspiracy theories about Paul Pelosi and David DePape were complete fabrication.

They were released after a state court judge ruled on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, that there was no reason to keep them secret.

The San Francisco district attorney earlier refused to release them, forcing a coalition of news agencies to sue for access to the evidence.

Police Body Camera Video

The police body camera video showed Paul Pelosi and David DePape holding onto a hammer, when after Pelosi opened the door. Neither man were wearing underwear, as some conspiracy theorists have alleged.

When the officer asked them to drop the hammer, DePape wrest the hammer from Pelosi and proceeded to attack him with the hammer. The actual hammer hit on Paul Pelosi’s head occurred out of the camera’s view.

After police officers wrestled David DePape to the ground, Paul Pelosi can be seen lying face down on the floor, apparently unconscious in a pool of what appears to be his own blood.

Capitol Police CCTV Surveillance Video

The surveillance video came from a Capitol Police CCTV camera that was installed at the Pelosi household.

There was not Capitol Police present, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi was away – their protection unfortunately did not extend to her husband.

David DePape is seen arriving at the back of the Pelosi house with two backpacks, before proceeding to use a hammer to smash the glass door six times, before attempting to break in.

After failing to gain entry, DePape proceeded to whack the glass door with his hammer ten more times, before using his shoulder to smash his way through.

He can then be seen ducking through the glass door – he appears to have broken just two glass panels.

911 Call

The 911 call, which runs almost 3 minutes, showed Paul Pelosi trying to alert the operator to the danger he was facing without triggering David DePape who was listening to the call, and even chimed in.

https://www.techarp.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/Paul-Pelosi-911-call.m4a?_=1

Here is my rough transcript of what was said in that 911 call between Paul Pelosi and David DePape on one end, and the 911 operator on the other end.

Operator : This is San Francisco Police. Do you need help?

Pelosi : There is a gentleman here waiting for my wife to come back. Nancy Pelosi. He’s just waiting for her to come back. She’s not going to be here for a day, so I guess we’ll have to wait. Is the Capitol Police around? They’re usually here at the house protecting my wife.

Operator : Okay, do you need Police, Fire, or Medical, for anything?

Pelosi : Uh, I don’t think so. I don’t think so. There’s the, um… Is the Capitol Police around?

Operator : No, this is San Francisco Police.

Pelosi : They’re usually here at the house protecting my wife.

Operator : No, this is San Francisco Police.

Pelosi : No, I understand. Uh, okay, well, uh. (speaking to DePape) I don’t know. What do you think?

DePape : I think everything’s good.

Pelosi : He thinks everything’s good. I’ve got a problem, but he thinks everything’s good.

Operator : Okay, call us back if you change your mind.

Pelosi : No, no, no, this gentleman just came into the house, and he wants to wait for my wife to come home. And so, uh… Anyway.

Operator : Do you know who the person is?

Pelosi : No, I don’t know who he is. He’s telling me not to do anything.

Operator : What is your name?

Pelosi : My name is Paul Pelosi. Anyway, this gentleman says that… he’s telling me to put the phone down, and to do what he says. Okay?

Operator : Okay, what’s the gentleman’s name?

Pelosi : I don’t know.

DePape : David DePape.

Pelosi : What’s that?

DePape : My name’s David.

Pelosi : His name’s David.

Operator : Okay, and who is David?

Pelosi : I don’t know. (to DePape) What’s that?

DePape : I’m a friend of theirs.

Pelosi : I don’t… He said he’s a friend, but as I said, I don’t know…

Operator : But you don’t know who he is?

Pelosi : No, ma’am.

Operator : Okay.

Pelosi : He’s telling me I’m being very leading, so I have to stop talking to you, okay?

Operator : Okay. You sure? I can stay on the phone with you just to make sure everything’s okay.

DePape : No, we want you to…

Pelosi : He wants me to get the hell off the phone. Okay?

Operator : Okay.

Pelosi : Thank you.

Operator : Okay, bye.

As you can tell by now – Paul Pelosi had no idea who David DePape was, and you can hear how he’s trying to convey to the 911 operator the danger he was in, without tipping off DePape.

Did Paul Pelosi Hire David DePape As Prostitute?!

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

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

Updated @ 2023-01-28 : Added the bodycam and CCTV surveillance videos on the night of the assault.
Originally posted @ 2022-11-01

 

Claim : David DePape Was A Prostitute Paul Pelosi Hired!

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

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

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

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

Read more : Pelosi DePape videos + call kill MAGA, QAnon claims!

 

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

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

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

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

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news. Here’s a selection of fake claims they posted in the past:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #3 : David DePape Brought The Hammer

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #7 : David DePape Espoused Right Wing Conspiracy Views

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Memorial Reveals Bizarre Details On Diamond’s Death!

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Memorial Reveals Bizarre Details On Diamond’s Sudden Death!

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

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

Silk Suggests Diamond Was Poisoned By Vaccinated People!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Silk Tells Of Diamond’s Final Moments

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Silk Threatens To File Complaint With Police

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

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

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

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

Trump Forgot Who Silk Was!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Did Zuckerberg Warn FB Staff Not To Get Vaccine?!

Did Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg warn Facebook staff not to get the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Mark Zuckerberg Warned FB Staff Not To Get Vaccine!

A viral video clip of Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has gone viral, together with claims that he was warning Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine!

Steve Kirsch : LEAKED VIDEO: Facebook’s Zuckerberg Warned His Staff NOT To Get the Vaccine. But censors the info YOU see. You are the Guinea pigs.

Johnny Midnight : Zuckerberg warned his staff not to get the Vaccine 💉!

James Cintolo, RN FN CPT : 🚨BREAKING — Leaked Video Of Mark Zuckerberg Warning His Staff Not To Take A COVID Vaccine

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

 

Truth : Zuckerberg Did Not Warn FB Staff Not To Get COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

Fact #1 : The Viral Video Is Genuine

First, let me confirm that the video is genuine, and is not a deepfake production. As fake as it appear, that was really Mark Zuckerberg speaking in that video.

However, you will note that Zuckerberg did not actually tell or warn Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : The Viral Video Is More Than 2.5 Years Old

One version of the viral video was edited to state that it happen in August 2021, to give the impression that Mark Zuckerberg was advising Facebook staff against getting vaccinated.

The viral video clip is not new, as people are claiming on social media. It is actually a short segment of a virtual Q&A meeting for Facebook staff that was streamed live on July 16, 2020.

The video was only publicly revealed on February 17, 2021, when Project Veritas got a copy of the livestream, and leaked a very short segment of the entire video.

In other words – the video clip is old – it was recorded more than 30 months ago, and leaked more than 23 months ago.

Fact #3 : The Viral Video Was Edited Even More

Subsequently, the video was further edited again to cut out the parts in bold, to get the condensed 24-second video clip that just went viral on 21 January 2023.

I do just want to make sure that I share some caution on this because we just don’t know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people’s DNA and RNA to directly code in a person’s DNA and RNA.

Basically the ability to produce those antibodies and whether that causes other mutations or other risks downstream. So there’s work on both paths of vaccine development.

You will note that Zuckerberg misstated how mRNA vaccines work, and pointed out that there is work bering done on other types of COVID-19 vaccines.

Read more : Pfizer + Moderna mRNA Vaccines : How Do They Work?

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Still In Development Then

It is impossible for Mark Zuckerberg to ask or warn Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine, because when he made those comments, COVID-19 vaccines were still being developed.

Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone later clarified that the July 2020 discussion occurred shortly after Moderna released its initial-stage trial results for its mRNA-1273 COVID-19 vaccine candidate, which used the new, state-of-the-art messenger RNA technology.

There was very little public knowledge about mRNA technology at that time, so it is not surprising to see Mark Zuckerberg wonder about the risks of any new technology, like everyone else.

I should point out that, at that time, Moderna had not started its Phase 3 trial, which would eventually prove that the mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate would offer robust protection against hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

After that successful Phase 3 trial, the mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate received an Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) on December 18, 2020 as the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. That was followed up with a full FDA approval on January 31, 2022, and it was henceforth marketed as Spikevax.

Fact #5 : mRNA Does Not Enter Cell Nucleus

mRNA vaccines do not enter the cell nucleus, and therefore, will not affect or interfere with the person’s DNA.

That is not my opinion, but is the official statement by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the matter.

To enter the nucleus, the mRNA vaccine would need an enzyme called integrase (which the real SARS-CoV-2 virus produces). Without this integrase enzyme, the mRNA cannot physically enter the cell nucleus and therefore, cannot change or integrate with our DNA.

Some anti-vaccination activists are referring to a Feb 2022 study by Alden et. al as “evidence”, but the truth is – the study does not show that the Pfizer vaccine (which is not the Moderna vaccine) combined with DNA in liver cells.

Read more : Did Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Combine With DNA In Liver Cells?!

Fact #6 : Zuckerberg Clarified The Matter With Dr. Fauci

Mark Zuckerberg actually brought up the topic in a November 30, 2020 livestream with Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Zuckerberg : Just to clear up one point, my understanding is that these vaccines do not modify your DNA or RNA. So that’s just an important point to clarify, if I’m getting anything wrong here, of course correct me.

Dr. Fauci : No, first of all, DNA is inherent in your own nuclear cell. Sticking in anything foreign will ultimately get cleared.

Zuckerberg : I’m glad we can clear that up.

In other words, before Project Veritas even leaked the video, Mark Zuckerberg had already clarified with Dr. Anthony Fauci that mRNA vaccines cannot modify our DNA.

Fact #7 : Facebook Banned Claims mRNA Vaccines Alter DNA In 2021

We know that Mark Zuckerberg was convinced about the safety of the mRNA vaccines, and that they do not alter or change our DNA, because he banned any claim that the mRNA vaccines can change DNA on Facebook.

On February 8, 2021, Facebook updated its COVID-19 and vaccine policies to “protect people from harmful content and new types of abuse related to COVID-19 and vaccines“.

Facebook also said that it would remove posts that included “claims that the COVID-19 vaccine changes people’s DNA“.

Was Joe Biden Caught Groping Girl On Viral Video?!

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

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

 

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

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

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

#StopTheWEFnow : Uncle Biden strikes again!!! 💥

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

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

If Trump did that… #StopTheWEFnow

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

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

 

Truth : President Joe Biden Was Not Groping The Girl!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #4 : Video Was Edited

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

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

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

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

Fact #5 : Video Was Apparently Created By Machiavelli Memez

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

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

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

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

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

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

CJ Harris : Cause of Death Confirmed, Not Vaccine!

The cause of death of former American Idol contestant, CJ Harris, has been confirmed, and is not related to the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

Updated @ 2023-01-20 : Added the official cause of death for CJ Harris, and the autopsy that was conducted earlier.
Originally posted @ 2023-01-18

 

Claim : CJ Harris Died From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that CJ Harris suddenly collapsed and died, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the former American Idol contestant and singer was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

How many of these are we going to have before we pull that fucking vaccine off the market and investigate what’s going on and how to prevent this from happening?

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

 

Truth : CJ Harris Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

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

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

Fact #1 : CJ Harris Collapsed At Home

CJ Harris (born Curtis Harris on January 28, 1991) was an American singer who finished in the sixth place on American Idol season 13 six years ago, in 2014.

Since then, he performed with Darius Rucker at the Grand Ole Opry, and released his debut single “In Love” in 2019.

On January 15, 2023, CJ Harris appeared to suffer a heart attack at home that Sunday night. According to a family member, he was taken by an ambulance to the Walker Baptist Medical Center in his hometown of Jasper, Alabama.

Shortly after arriving at the emergency room, CJ Harris was pronounced dead after CPR efforts failed to revive him.

Fact #2 : CJ Harris Died From A Heart Attack

The Walker County Coroner confirmed on Thursday, January 19, that CJ Harris died from a heart attack.

Doctors at the Walker Baptist Medical Center have listed CJ Harris’ official cause of death as a heart attack.

Fact #3 : An Autopsy Was Conducted On CJ Harris

Walker County Coroner Joey Vick said that an autopsy was carried out on CJ Harris, but further tests are needed to determine the official cause of his death.

However, since his death was subsequently confirmed to be a heart attack, the autopsy was no longer required.

Read more : Did Lisa Marie Presley Die Of Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Fact #4 : Unknown If CJ Harris Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if CJ Harris was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

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

Unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that CJ Harris was fully-vaccinated and died from the vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #6 : Cardiac Arrest Is Common

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many people do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and most people don’t survive.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

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

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

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

Fact Check : Babo The Amazing Blind Figure Skater!

Does a viral dance video show Babo, a blind figure skater who lost his eyesight and mother in a fire many years ago?!

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

 

Claim : Babo Becomes A Figure Skater After Becoming Blind!

A video has gone viral on WhatsApp, and social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, showing a pair of male and female dancers, together with these descriptions:

👆This is not one of the ice skating videos.

It’s one of the most amazing performance in the history of skating, which brought tears to the 10,000 spectators present.

Babo, the male dancer, has been blind since childhood. In a fire accident, his mother held him tightly in her arms and jumped from the 7th floor. His mother died, the little Babo became blind due to hemorrhage in his eyes and survived multiple bone fracture.

His mother was an ice skater and Babo inherited that gene. Although he couldn’t see anything, he still pursued his passion enthusiastically.

Here he is doing the famous tango “La Cumparsita” with his partner at the World Figure Skating Championships in Helsinki!👆

His ears could measure the surrounding sound and distance like a bat. His female dancing partner is equally amazing. She danced with him so elegantly giving the sense of orientation and movements to her partner as if through telepathy so that even the most difficult synchronised movements kept perfect rhythm.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

 

Truth : That Is Not Babo, And He Is Not A Blind Figure Skater!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media platforms, and here are there reasons why, and what we know about the video…

Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded In 2017

While many people think that this is a recent video, the video was actually recorded at the 2017 International Skating Union (ISU) World Figure Skating Championship, that was held in Helsinki, Finland.

The original video is very long – lasting almost 4 hours. The video clip that went viral on WhatsApp and social media, was edited from this video, starting at the 02:03:28 mark.

Fact #2 : Video Shows Russian Ice Dancers

The video does not show a blind American dancer called Babo, and his female partner. It shows Russian ice dancers Ivan Bukin, and Alexandra Stepanova.

While Ivan Bukin (born Ivan Andreyevich Bukin on 16 September 1993) closed his eyes for a moment before they started skating, he is not blind.

Just in case you are wondering – Alexandra Stepanova (born Alexandra Nikolayevna Stepanova on 19 August 1995) is also not blind.

Fact #3 : Ivan Bukin’s Mother Did Not Die In A Fire

Ivan Bukin is the son of 1988 Olympic ice dancing champion Andrei Bukin, and ice dancer Elena Vasiuk.

Elena Vasiuk did not die in a fire when Ivan Bukin was a child. No one jumped from the 7th floor of any building in a fire, at least not in his family!

In July 2018, Bukin mentioned that both of his parents came to watch him dance to a new Tango Romantica dance routine. So we know that his parents are still alive and well in 2018.

Sister : Hunter Brown’s Sudden Death Not Due To Jab!

USAF cadet Hunter Brown’s sister has spoken up about her brother’s sudden death, saying that it was not due to the COVID-19 vaccine jab!

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

 

Claim : USAF Cadet Hunter Brown Collapsed From Vaccine SADS!

When news broke that US Air Force Academy cadet Hunter Brown suddenly collapsed and died on the way to class, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine!

We know he had the jab because he had to stay to in the Air Force. This is really getting out of hand…how many more people have to die before these woke pricks shut down this massive deadly vaccine scam?
Air Force football player Hunter Brown dead at 21

Air Force football player Hunter Brown dead at 21
Another healthy young person dies for no reason. Thousands have died this way. I have no proof, but and many, many scientists and doctors think it’s the vaccine.

Praying for the family of Hunter Brown as well as all Air Force families who have brothers, sisters, children, and grandchildren who were forced to take the mRNA jabs. They didn’t need them, and sometimes there are real consequences. Let’s hope that wasn’t the case here. So sad.

On January 9, 2023, US Air Force Academy cadet Hunter Brown experienced a “medical emergency” while leaving his dormitory for class that Monday morning. It was the USAFA cadets’ first day back from their winter break.

A 21 year-old sophomore (second year student) from Lake Charles, Louisiana, Hunter was also an offensive lineman on the US Air Force’s Falcon football team.

First responders attempted live saving measures, but were ultimately unsuccessful. The US Air Force Academy announced his death on Tuesday, January 10, 2023.

With heavy hearts we share the loss of a cadet.

C3C [Cadet Third Class] Hunter Brown died Monday after suffering a medical emergency while on his way to class.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends, teammates and fellow cadets. #NeverForgotten

Lt. Gen. Richard M. Clark, U.S. Air Force Academy Superintendent also issued a statement on Hunter Brown’s death:

Hunter was a standout offensive lineman on the Falcon football team and was well-respected in his squadron.

The entire U.S. Air Force Academy mourns his loss, and our hearts and condolences are with his family, his squadron, and all who were touched by this incredible young man.

Even though details about Hunter Brown’s death was extremely limited, anti-vaccination activists immediately blamed the COVID-19 vaccine for his death.

Agents of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office secured the area where Hunter Brown collapsed and eventually died. They are now conducting an investigation into his death – a standard protocol for any military member who dies on-base.

According to the El Paso County Coroner’s Office, Hunter Brown’s autopsy is expected to take several weeks. Until they finish their investigations and reveal the cause of his death, anyone who tells you that cadet Hunter Brown died from this or that cause is most likely lying to you.

However, one person close to Hunter Brown – his sister, Hannah Brown, said that her brother’s death was not due to a “jab”, in response to yet another callous post about his death.

Please take this down now. It wasn’t due to a “jab”. This isn’t political and we are hurting.

Despite her plea on January 12, 2023, the OP did not remove his post suggesting that Hunter Brown may have been killed by the “mRNA jabs”.

Hannah appeared to have tried fending off questions about whether her brother died from the COVID-19 vaccine, with a post asking for privacy on January 11, 2023:

If you aren’t close to my family you have no business being nosey and asking what happened. It’s already hard enough.

Stop Hounding Hunter Brown’s Family Over His Sudden Death!

No one should be hounding the Brown family over the death of their brother and son. His sister has already publicly said that Hunter Brown did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine. What else do you need to know?

If you have such a morbid interest in Hunter Brown’s sudden death, can’t you wait for the autopsy? If you don’t trust the autopsy, then why keep claiming that the authorities are covering up vaccine deaths by not performing autopsies?

So lay off the Brown family, and wait for the autopsy results to be revealed publicly. Until that time, there is ZERO EVIDENCE that Hunter Brown died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Heck, we don’t even know if Hunter Brown was ever vaccinated against COVID-19 in the first place!

On top of that, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

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

Did Russia Just Destroy 4 Bradley Fighting Vehicles In Ukraine?!

Did Russia just destroy four Bradley Fighting Vehicles in Ukraine?!

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

 

Claim : Russia Just Destroyed 4 Bradley Fighting Vehicles In Ukraine!

People are sharing a video of Russian Ministry of Defense spokesman Igor Konashenkov claiming that Russian forces destroyed four Bradley Fighting Vehicles (BFV) in Ukraine!

Here is the accompanying message, which I machine-translated into English.

💥 За сутки боевых действий на данном направлении противник потерял 11 танков, 17 боевых машин пехоты, в том числе четыре БМП «Брэдли» производства США, 10 других боевых бронированных машин, 5 пикапов с крупнокалиберными пулеметами и более 150 военнослужащих.

💥 During the day of hostilities in this direction, the enemy lost 11 tanks, 17 infantry fighting vehicles, including four US-made Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, 10 other armored combat vehicles, 5 pickup trucks with heavy machine guns and more than 150 military personnel.

 

Truth : Russia Did Not Destroy 4 Bradley Fighting Vehicles In Ukraine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS spread by pro-Russian netizens and groups.

Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded On 4 September 2022

The video is genuine, but it isn’t new. It was actually posted on the official Russian Ministry of Defence’s Telegram group on 4 September 2022.

In that longer video, Ministry of Defense spokesman Igor Konashenkov was giving a report on the state of Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine.

⚡️ Сводка Министерства обороны Российской Федерации о ходе проведения специальной военной операции на территории Украины (04.09.2022 г.)

⚡️ Report of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on the progress of the special military operation on the territory of Ukraine (04.09.2022)

Fact #2 : Bradley Fighting Vehicle Donation Only Announced In January 2023

President Joe Biden only announced that the US government would be sending Ukraine about 50 Bradley M2A2 ODS Fighting Vehicles on Wednesday, January 4, 2023.

That’s exactly four months after Russia claimed to have destroyed four of them!

Recommended : Russian Gov Caught Fabricating Dirty Bomb Evidence!

Fact #3 : There Are Still No Bradley Fighting Vehicles In Ukraine

Even today, it is impossible for Russian military forces to have destroyed four Bradley Fighting Vehicles in Ukraine, because the Ukrainian army still does not not have any!

Yes, President Biden announced a new $2.8 billion weapons package on January 4, 2023 that would include about 50 Bradley Fighting Vehicles, but those vehicles will take months to deliver.

As Pentagon spokesman Pat Ryder announced on January 5, 2023 – the Bradley Fighting Vehicles have not been delivered to Ukraine.

You will see when Bradleys arrive on the battlefield. Let Ukraine announce it.

Fact #4 : Ukrainians Need To Train On Bradley Fighting Vehicles First!

Logistically, the US Army has about 4,000 Bradley Fighting Vehicles, and can easily deliver the 50 vehicles to Ukraine in weeks, if not days.

However, Bradley Fighting Vehicles are complex vehicles, and it will take several weeks for each vehicle and maintenance crew to learn how to use and maintain them. And that is expedited training.

In fact, the Ukrainians will only start training on the Bradley M2 vehicles this week in Germany, as announced by Pentagon spokesman Pat Ryder in a briefing last week.

Training will mostly start next week in Germany. We expect this training to last weeks, not months.

Regardless of when the US government sends the Bradley M2 vehicles to Ukraine, they will only appear on the battlefield after there are trained Ukrainian crews.

Fact #5 : This Is Just Pro-Russia Propaganda

This is nothing more than old but official Russian propaganda that is being used by pro-CCP and pro-Russia netizens and groups to promote the perception that the United States is wasting resources in Ukraine.

Be wary of such claims, because there are plenty spreading on WhatsApp, Telegram and social media platforms. Here is a selection of similar Russian propaganda that I fact checked in the past:

Did Alexis Prue Suffer A Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Did Alexis Prue – the wife of former TV personality, Andrew Prue, suddenly collapse and almost die from a cardiac arrest caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Alexis Prue Suffered A Vaccine-Induced Cardiac Arrest!

Right after former TV personality, Andrew Prue, announced that his wife suffered a cardiac arrest and almost died, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that Alexis Prue was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

I guarantee that she’s had all of the shots and is full of clots. So sad 😭

I BEG you…if this had anything to do with the VAccine…PLEASE let it be known. I have lost 2 relatives and a great friend. An experimental vaccine is NOT the answer to our problems.

Two words. Untested. Vaccines.

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

 

Truth : Alexis Prue Did Not Suffer A Vaccine-Induced Cardiac Arrest!

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

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

Fact #1 : Alexis Prue Suffered A Cardiac Arrest

Andrew Prue and his wife, Alexis (nee Alexis Graham) were in Jacksonville, Florida for a Tennessee Titans game on January 7, 2023. That was where they took the photo above.

Hours after the game, she suffered a cardiac arrest and her heart stopped beating for 3 minutes. Fortunately, she was resuscitated and was rushed to a hospital, where she was treated in an ICU.

Andrew Prue announced the tragic turn to a fun night out on Twitter, and asked for prayers.

Please please please pray for my wife Alexis. Alexis suffered cardiac arrest last night. Her heart stopped beating for 3 minutes before being resuscitated. She is currently in ICU. My 15 month old daughter,India, and I need her more than she ever knows.I love you so much Alexis🙏🏾

Alexis remains sedated in the ICU, after suffering multiple seizures. Fortunately, an MRI scan showed that she suffered no brain damage from her cardiac arrest.

On January 14, Andrew Prue announced that she had not had any seizures in the last 24 hours, and will wean her off sedation if she remained free of seizures for another 24 hours.

Read more : Did Lisa Marie Presley Die Of Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Fact #2 : Alexis Prue Was Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Needless to say – news of Alexis Prue’s cardiac arrest immediately spurred anti-vaccination activists to declare her as another victim of the COVID-19 vaccine.

That appeared to annoy her husband, Andrew Prue, who shared publicly on January 9, that Alexis was not vaccinated against COVID-19.

My wife was NOT vaccinated, so end that narrative and show some damn sympathy for my family 🤬

That makes Alexis Prue another “victim” of anti-vaccination activists who falsely claimed that her illness was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, like these other people who were also NOT vaccinated…

Fact #3 : Cardiac Arrest Is Common

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many people do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and most people don’t survive.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

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

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Fact #4 : Claims Of People Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

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

Was Lisa Marie Presley Vaccinated Against COVID-19?

After Lisa Marie Presley died suddenly from cardiac arrest, people are sharing a screenshot of her saying she had no regrets getting vaccinated against COVID-19!

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

 

Claim : Lisa Marie Presley Got Vaccinated Against COVID-19!

Right after news broke that Lisa Marie Presley collapsed and died suddenly from cardiac arrest, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that singer-songwriter and the only child of Elvis Presley was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

As proof, many are now sharing a screenshot of what they said was her Facebook post on March 12, 2022, in which Lisa Marie Presley allegedly said she had “no regrets” getting the COVID-19 vaccine!

The last two years have been years of significant change in our lives. The COVID-19 didn’t only take our jobs and security, it took our lives.

The idea of having a regular life like we used to, going out with family and friends and having quality time with them, motivated me to get vaccinated because I’m not only protecting myself, I’m also protecting others.

|I can’t lie, I was nervous initially, but I made my decision and I have no regrets!

To be informed about how best to protect ourselves and our loved ones is the smartest thing we can do. I chose the vaccine. Why did you decide to get vaccinated?

The vaccines prevent serious illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccines are free, even if you don’t have health insurance or aren’t a U.S. citizen.

Truth : Lisa Marie Presley Did Not Post About Getting COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : That Viral Message Was Not Posted By Lisa Marie Presley

The viral message about not regretting getting the COVID-19 vaccine was not posted by Lisa Marie Presley – the American singer-songwriter, and the only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley.

It was actually posted by a beauty and fashion blogger called Lisa Marie, who posted it on March 13, 2020.

Fact #2 : Lisa Marie Posted The Message With Her Photo

Some of you may think that it could have been a mistake. After all, Lisa Marie sounds very much like Lisa Marie Presley, no? Potayto, pohtato? Innocent mistake maybe?

I’m afraid, not. When Lisa Marie posted her message about getting vaccinated against COVID-19, she posted her photo – TWO of them in fact.

The person who took the screenshot would have noticed them.  Yet he/she cropped out the photo of Lisa Marie, and only took the screenshot of her text.

Why would anyone do that? Why???

Fact #3 : Hashtags Give Plenty Of Clues

It is odd how people who claim to “know it all” missed the many clues offered by the hashtags in the viral message – #austin #texas #fashion #fashionblogger #austinblogger

Lisa Marie Presley lives in Calabasas, California, not Austin, Texas. She was also never a fashion blogger.

It is Lisa Marie, the young fashion blogger, who lives in Austin, Texas…

Fact #4 : They Look Nothing Alike

Perhaps the answer to the question of why would someone take a screenshot of the post without the accompanying photos of Lisa Marie lies in the fact that they look nothing alike.

The two ladies may share similar names, but they look different. Anyone who sees the photos would immediately realise that the post was not written by Lisa Marie Presley.

On the oft-chance that some readers will still dispute that claim, here is a close-up look of both ladies.

Read more : Did Lisa Marie Presley Die Of Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Fact #5 : Unknown If Lisa Marie Presley Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Lisa Marie Presley was vaccinated against COVID-19, as she has never publicly mentioned her vaccination status.

For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

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

Until and unless her family reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Lisa Marie Presley received the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

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

Truth : Lisa Marie Presley Did Not Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

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

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

Fact #1 : Lisa Marie Presley Complained Of Stomach Pains That Morning

Lisa Marie Presley (born February 1, 1968) was an American singer-songwriter, who was the only child of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley. She was once married to musician Danny Keough, singer Michael Jackson, actor Nicholas Cage, and music producer Michael Lockwood.

Lisa Marie Presley complained of stomach pains that got more and more intense on early Thursday morning, January 12, 2023.

Later that morning, Lisa Marie was found lying unresponsive in her bedroom by her housekeeper. Her ex-husband, Danny Keough (who lives with Lisa Marie) arrived home after taking their kids to school, and administered CPR until paramedics arrived.

When they arrived, the paramedics gave her at least one epinephrine shot, and managed to restore her pulse before rushing her to a nearby hospital. Her 77 year-old mother, Priscilla Presley confirmed her death on Thursday night:

It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us.

She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.

Fact #2 : Lisa Marie Presley’s Cause Of Death Still Unknown

It is currently unknown what Lisa Marie Presley died of, as her cause of death was never announced.

Paramedics who arrived found that she was in full cardiac arrest (her heart stopped beating), but that may not necessarily be the actual cause of death, especially when Lisa Marie complained of worsening stomach pains earlier that morning.

Heart attack can present with a stomach ache or heartburn-like symptoms, and can happen at rest. In fact, heart attacks are more common and more severe in the morning, than any other time of the day or night.

Until an autopsy is performed, and her true cause of death revealed, it is impossible to know whether Lisa Marie Presley died from a cardiac arrest or a heart attack.

Fact #3 : Lisa Marie Presley Had Strong Family History Of Heart Disease

Lisa Marie Presley had a strong family history of heart disease. Her father prominently died at just 42 years of age, after being found unconscious on the bathroom floor of his Graceland mansion.

While his cause of death has always been in dispute, Elvis had an enlarged heart for a long time, with a strong family history of heart failure. Even though it is likely that his long drug use had a part to play, his autopsy confirmed that his heart was enlarged and thickened.

In 2014, his DNA sample was tested by Professor Stefan Shuester and Dr. Stephen Kingsmore, who found that Elvis Presley had a major mutation on Chromosome 11 that is known to cause hypertrophic cardiomyopathy – the thickening of the heart muscle, which can lead to heart failure and/or sudden cardiac death.

I should also point out that her grandmother, Gladys Presley, died of a heart attack at just 46 years of age. Her grandfather, Vernon Presley, also died of a heart attack – two years after Elvis passed away.

As his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley not only inherited his wealth, she also inherited his family history of heart disease, including possibly that genetic mutation for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Fact #4 : Cardiac Arrest Is Different From A Heart Attack

Just to be clear – a cardiac arrest is different from a heart attack, which is why an autopsy will be needed to determine Lisa Marie Presley’s cause of death.

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

A sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) occurs when an electrical malfunction causes the heart to beat irregularly or stop beating completely.

As this easy comparison from the American Heart Association shows – a heart attack is a circulation problem, while a cardiac arrest is an electrical problem.

Either way, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrest or heart attack. So Lisa Marie Presley’s death cannot possibly be caused by the vaccines.

Fact #5 : Lisa Marie Presley Had History Of Drug + Alcohol Abuse

Like her famous father Elvis, Lisa Marie Presley had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, starting from a very young age.

She started abusing drugs and alcohol when she was just 13, until her mother checked her into a Scientology rehab center at 17 years old. She then became addicted to opioids in 2008, and was heavily using cocaine by 2013, checking into rehab at least five times.

I did everything but mushrooms and heroin or crack. Cocaine, sedatives, pot, and drinking — all at the same time… I don’t know how I lived through it.

Her son, Benjamin Keough, also had addiction problems, and died by suicide on 12 July 2020, when he was just 27 years old.

Fact #6 : Cardiac Arrest Is A Common Cause Of Sudden Death

While it has not been confirmed that Lisa Marie Presley died from cardiac arrest, I should point out that it is a common cause of sudden death.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

Again, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrest or heart attack. So Lisa Marie Presley’s death cannot possibly be caused by the vaccines.

Fact #7 : Unknown If Lisa Marie Presley Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Lisa Marie Presley was vaccinated against COVID-19, as she has never publicly mentioned her vaccination status.

For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

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

Until and unless her family reveals her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Lisa Marie Presley received the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

H&M Fitting Room Hidden Camera Under Investigation!

Both H&M and the police are investigating how a hidden camera was used to record videos of people in a fitting room and then sold online!

 

Hidden Camera Allegedly Used To Record Videos In H&M Fitting Room!

The H&M fitting room hidden camera scandal exploded on Wednesday, 11 January 2023, after a Twitter user called Nishea (@meleisgw) exposed a private group that was allegedly selling four videos showing couples inside a fitting room.

The video footage appeared to be taken from above the fitting room by a hidden camera, and the videos allegedly showed shoppers undressing and trying on clothes, as well as couples hugging and/or engaging in sexual activities.

The four videos have now leaked, and are being sold through social media and Telegram groups for about RM20 to RM30 (US$4.50 to RM6.80) for the full set. That may seem “cheap”, but it’s because so many people have them already.

If you are thinking of buying these videos, don’t. You are more than likely to get scammed. And will you report to the police that you were cheated of money while trying to buy illegally-recorded videos of people in a fitting room?

One of the victims reached out to Nishea, and confirmed that the incident happened at the H&M store in the Avenue K mall in October 2022. The victim also said that she used the furthest most stall on the left of the fitting room.

She verified her story by showing her receipt of her clothes purchase on that day, and a photo of herself wearing the same clothes. A second victim also reached out to Nishea after that.

Both H&M and the police are now investigating the case.

 

H&M Fitting Room Hidden Camera Under Investigation!

After the incident erupted on social media, H&M addressed the issue, stating:

In response to recent concerns about hidden cameras in H&M fitting rooms, we have conducted an inspection of the fitting rooms in all H&M stores in Malaysia and are working to ensure that there are no security breaches that will compromise the privacy of our customers, as their safety is of utmost importance to us. All findings to date have been reported to the police, and investigations are currently ongoing.

The security manager of the Avenue K mall also lodged a police report over the matter at the Dang Wangi police station.

Assistant Police Commissioner OCPD Noor Delihan Yahya said that the police searched the H&M store but did not find any camera, and believe that the footage could have been recorded in a different location.

The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) is now investigating the case under Section 509 of the Penal Code for intentionally insulting the modesty of any woman by word, through sound, gesture, or object.

Here is our English translation of their press release on the matter.

On 11/01/2023 at approximately 0900hrs, one (1) 11-second video was uploaded by the owner of the Nishae Twitter account which shows the video recording from a hidden camera of the dressing room of a shopping center in the link https://twitter.com/meleisaw/status/1612094210810998785.

On 09/01/2023 at approximately 1638hrs, the Criminal Investigation Department of the Dang Wangi police headquarters, Kuala Lumpur received a police report regarding the incident. Preliminary investigations are underway to identify the date and location of the incident. The act is an offense under Section 509 of the Penal Code.

 

H&M Fitting Room Hidden Camera : Past Incident In China

This isn’t the first time H&M shoppers were targeted by hidden cameras in its fitting rooms.

Back in July 2017, a shopper called Chu spotted a hidden camera while changing her clothes inside a fitting room in the H&M store in Zhongshan, the south Guangdong province in China.

The camera was linked to a white plastic box behind the curtain on the other side of the door. The police later claimed that several other fitting rooms were also suspected to be fitted with hidden cameras.

However, I should point out that hidden cameras are a risk everywhere, not just in H&M fitting rooms, or any fashion outlet for the matter. It’s a risk in public toilets and even hotel rooms.

What we should learn about this is to be more aware of what’s around us in any room that is accessible to the public, even if it has a door and a lock.

Mike Lindell : Diamond Was Not Sick But Just Collapsed!

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mike Lindell : Diamond Was Not Sick But Just Collapsed!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Did Cadet Hunter Brown Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did US Air Force Academy cadet Hunter Brown collapse and die suddenly from vaccine SADS, on the way to class?!

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

 

Claim : Cadet Hunter Brown Collapsed From Vaccine SADS!

When news broke that US Air Force Academy cadet Hunter Brown suddenly collapsed and died on the way to class, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine!

We know he had the jab because he had to stay to in the Air Force. This is really getting out of hand…how many more people have to die before these woke pricks shut down this massive deadly vaccine scam?
Air Force football player Hunter Brown dead at 21

Air Force football player Hunter Brown dead at 21
Another healthy young person dies for no reason. Thousands have died this way. I have no proof, but and many, many scientists and doctors think it’s the vaccine.

BREAKING REPORT: Offensive Lineman From Air Force Academy Hunter Brown DIES SUDDENLY While Walking to Class…

When is it ok to ask questions about the vaccine?

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

 

No Evidence Cadet Hunter Brown Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

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

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

Fact #1 : Cadet Hunter Brown Suffered A Medical Emergency

On January 9, 2023, US Air Force Academy cadet Hunter Brown experienced a “medical emergency” while leaving his dormitory for class that Monday morning. It was the USAFA cadets’ first day back from their winter break.

A 21 year-old sophomore (second year student) from Lake Charles, Louisiana, Hunter was also an offensive lineman on the US Air Force’s Falcon football team.

First responders attempted live saving measures, but were ultimately unsuccessful. The US Air Force Academy announced his death on Tuesday, January 10, 2023.

With heavy hearts we share the loss of a cadet.

C3C [Cadet Third Class] Hunter Brown died Monday after suffering a medical emergency while on his way to class.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends, teammates and fellow cadets. #NeverForgotten

Lt. Gen. Richard M. Clark, U.S. Air Force Academy Superintendent also issued a statement on Hunter Brown’s death:

Hunter was a standout offensive lineman on the Falcon football team and was well-respected in his squadron.

The entire U.S. Air Force Academy mourns his loss, and our hearts and condolences are with his family, his squadron, and all who were touched by this incredible young man.

Recommended : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #2 : Hunter Brown’s Cause Of Death Still Being Investigated

While anti-vaccination activists have immediately blamed the COVID-19 vaccine for Hunter Brown’s death, his official cause of death has not been determined, much less announced.

Agents of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office secured the area where Hunter Brown collapsed and eventually died. They are now conducting an investigation into his death – a standard protocol for any military member who dies on-base.

According to the El Paso County Coroner’s Office, Hunter Brown’s autopsy is expected to take several weeks.

Until they finish their investigations and reveal the cause of his death, anyone who tells you that cadet Hunter Brown died from this or that cause is most likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Hunter Brown’s Sister Said He Didn’t Die From Vaccine

Hunter Brown’s sister, Hannah, recently said publicly that her brother’s death was not due to a “jab”, in response to yet another callous post about his death.

Please take this down now. It wasn’t due to a “jab”. This isn’t political and we are hurting.

Fact #4 : Cardiac Arrest Is A Common Cause Of Sudden Death

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse and die. The truth is many people do suddenly collapse and die, and a chief cause is sudden cardiac arrest.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

For example, 7 year-old Aidan Silva collapsed and died from sudden cardiac arrest while working on a puzzle in the middle of the day.

“I called his name and he didn’t respond,” recalls his mother Christy Silva, of Downingtown, Pennsylvania. “I looked in the hallway and he was on the floor on his side, his back was to me. And when I looked at his face, he was blue.”

This happened on September 4, 2010 – more than 10 years before the first COVID-19 vaccines were approved!

13 year-old Jackson Mohr, who was named cadet of the year, also died from sudden cardiac arrest, even though he was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Recommended : Why Jackson Mohr Did Not Die From Vaccine SADS!

Fact #5 : Unknown If Hunter Brown Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims that he was “forced” to get vaccinated, it is currently unknown if Hunter Brown was ever vaccinated against COVID-19.

Hunter Brown was a sophomore (second year) student at the United States Air Force Academy, which does not have a vaccine mandate for students. The Department of Defense only had a vaccine mandate for service members, not cadets.

On August 30, 2021, the United States Air Force Academy held a vaccination point of distribution for cadets to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in line with the guidance from the Secretary of Defense. Department of Defense guidance is that only vaccines fully licensed by the FDA are mandated for service members.

Currently, no administrative or disciplinary actions will be taken against cadets who do not receive the vaccine. Service-level policies, when released, determine what, if any, actions will be taken.

Until and unless we know that Hunter Brown was ever vaccinated against COVID-19, it is wrong for anyone to blame his medical emergency or sudden death on the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

Fact #1 : Brigitte Did Not Teach Macron Dancing

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Viral Video Was Recorded In 2016

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

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

Fact #4 : Music Was From 2014

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #6 : Jenna Johnson Is A Professional Dancer

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

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

Fact #7 : Jake Monreal Is A Professional Dancer

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

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

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

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

Did CTV News Jessica Robb Collapse From Vaccine?!

Did CTV News reporter Jessica Robb collapse from vaccine SADS while reporting on live TV?!

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

 

Claim : CTV News Jessica Robb Collapsed From Vaccine!

A video of CTV News reporter Jessica Robb has gone viral, after she appeared to suffer a medical episode on live TV, with anti-vaccination activists claiming that she collapsed from a vaccine side effect.

Here are some examples on social media:

CTV reporter Jessica Robb was on a live shot Sunday night with anchor Nahreman Issa when Jessica suddenly became unable to get her message out, stumbling over her words and apologizing before appearing to lose her balance.
How many jabs? Great vaccine!

Truth : Jessica Robb Did Not Collapse From COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : Jessica Robb Appeared Faint On Live TV

Jessica Robb is a Canadian news reporter working for CTV News. On Sunday, January 9, 2023, she was reporting on the six o’clock newswomen she appeared to suffer some kind of medical episode.

At that time, she was reporting on how the families of Flight PS752 victims felt three years after it was shot down by the Iranian military. While she started coherently, she began to pause and stumble over her words before telling the CTV News anchor that she was not feeling well.

Now Nahreman, I’m (gulps) looking at… after the… the day families are pushing Feds to … pushing the Feds to (pauses) Sorry …ahren [sic] I’m… heh… I’m not feeling very well right now, and I’m about just…”

That’s when CTV News anchor Nahreman Issa quickly cut in as Jessica appears to stumble forward, “Okay, we’ll come back to you and we’ll make sure that Jessica, you are doing okay.

It is unknown if Jessica actually fell or collapsed, as the feed cuts while she stumbled forward a few steps.

Fact #2 : Jessica Robb Recovered + Was Resting

About three hours later, CTV Edmonton posted a note telling viewers that Jessica Robb was feeling better and was resting.

PROGRAMMING NOTE: Thanks to everyone who inquired about our reporter who became ill during the 6 p.m. News. Jessica Robb is feeling better and is now resting.

Jessica herself also posted a tweet (now made private) to tell everyone that she was okay.

I won’t bury the lede: I’m okay.

Thank you to everyone who has reached, my cameraman @Stmcclune for being there for me, & @NahremanIssaCTV for being an absolute pro (as usual).

Recommended : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Jessica Robb Said Her Condition Was Not Caused By COVID-19 Vaccine

Jessica Robb said that she received an overwhelming amount of harassment and hatred, which is likely why she made her Twitter account private.

CTV Edmonton later posted a message from Jessica, in which she stated that while she won’t share her private medical information publicly, she can confirm that her situation had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine.

She also said that her condition was reasonably explained by her own “medical background”, which suggests that she has likely experienced the same condition before, or has a known medical condition causing such symptoms.

A message from Jessica Robb: On Sunday night, a very personal and vulnerable moment unfolded as I reported live on air. Since then, it has been shared thousands of times, along with baseless theories about the cause.

To everyone who has reached out with supportive messages of well wishes and concern, thank you. It’s been overwhelming, and while I can’t get to all the messages, please know I’ve seen them and appreciate every single one.

I have also received an overwhelming amount of harassment and hatred, tied to false theories about the reason for the incident. While I will not share private medical information publicly, I can say that there is no cause for concern, and that my understanding of my own medical background provides a reasonable explanation for what happened. I can, however, confirm that the situation was in no way related to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Recommended : Western University Ended Vaccine Mandate Over Student Deaths?!

Fact #4 : Jessica Robb Was Likely Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It has been claimed on social media that Jessica Robb posted on Facebook and/or Twitter that she was tripled vaccinated when she tested positive for COVID-19 on 28 April 2022.

Consider this my official out of (the physical) office.

Feeling very lucky to be vaxxed x3 & that I started isolating as soon as symptoms started. More than anything it’s the personal defeat I’m feeling after…

While I cannot verify the authenticity of the post, it seems more likely than not that Jessica Robb was at least fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, as over 80% Canadians are.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Jessica Robb was fully-vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, it is impossible for the COVID-19 vaccine to cause her “collapse” as she would have received the last dose more than 8 months ago!

She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

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

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

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

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

Fact #6 : Reporters Collapsing On Air Isn’t Rare

Anti-vaccination activists like to make a fuss about reporters collapsing while reporting on live TV, often falsely claiming that they died from the vaccine. The Died Suddenly movie, for example, made several claims that were proven false:

  • CNA Presenter Julie You who collapsed on air at COP27, on Nov. 9, 2022, due to dehydration and low blood sugar.
  • Brazilian reporter Vanessa Medeiros who collapsed on air from syncope on November 2, 2022.
  • Brazilian reporter Rafael Silva who collapsed during his live show on January 3, 2022, from a heart defect.

The most famous reporter to be accused of “dying” from the COVID-19 vaccine is probably Austrian journalist Rosa Lyon, who collapsed on air on 30 September 2019 – more than 3 months before China reported a novel coronavirus that would end up becoming SARS-CoV-2.

The truth is – being on live TV is stressful, and reporters can and do collapse from not hydrating / eating / resting well. Or they may have medical conditions that put them at risk of fainting or collapsing while under stress.

Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

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

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

Did Basketball Player Imo Essien Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Did college basketball player Imo Essien collapse from vaccine SADS, leaving his teammate in tears?!

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

 

Claim : Basketball Player Imo Essien Collapsed From Vaccine SADS!

A video of college basketball player, Imo Essien, apparently collapsing during a game has gone viral, with anti-vaccination activists claiming it as evidence that he is another victim of COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

Here are some examples on social media:

Here we go again… Another game – Another medical emergency as ODU🏀player Imo Essien collapses during the 1st half

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

 

No Evidence Imo Essien Collapsed From Vaccine SADS!

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

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

Fact #1 : Imo Essien Did Not Lose Consciousness

Despite suggestions that Imo Essien suddenly collapsed like Damar Hamlin, he did not lose consciousness at all.

Imo Essien – an Old Dominion point guard –  was on defence, when he suddenly stopped and sat down on the court, before slowly lying down on his side. He appeared to be in considerable pain.

Medical personnel from both teams rushed to attend to him. After a few moments, they helped Essien get on his feet, and he walked off the court with their help.

He never lost consciousness, and was responsive throughout the incident according to his team. In fact, he sat down on the bench for the rest of the game, and travelled back to Norfolk with his team!

Imo Essien was evaluated by the ODU Athletic Training staff along with the GA Southern medical staff. He was responsive throughout and was able to sit with the team for the duration of the game and drove home with the team.

He is in good spirits and will work with the ODU Sports Medicine Staff when they return to Norfolk.

Fact #2 : Imo Essien Will Be Examined By A Cardiologist 

Old Dominium Monarchs head coach, Jeff Jones, later revealed that Imo Essien had trouble catching his breath during the game, and was able to return to breathing normally before returning to the bench for the rest of the game.

He revealed that Essien’s vital signs were normal, and confirmed that the sophomore never lost consciousness. He also said that Imo Essien underwent a COVID-19 test after the incident, which came back negative.

He shared that Imo Essien was held out of practice with a non-COVID illness early last week, but recovered and had a “great” practice on Wednesday before the match.

Imo Essien was kept out of practice again on Monday, January 9, in order to meet with a cardiologist to undergo tests and examinations, to determine his next steps in a path to return.

Note that this does not mean that Imo Essien had a cardiac arrest like Damar Hamlin. Only the cardiologist can determine what happened that day after examining and running tests on him.

Recommended : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Imo Essien Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims that he was “forced” to get vaccinated, it is currently unknown if Imo Essien was ever vaccinated against COVID-19.

Imo Essien is a sophomore (second year) student at the Old Dominion University, which had a vaccine mandate for students. However, that vaccine mandate was lifted on January 31, 2022.

Therefore, it is possible that Imo Essien, who would have been a freshman then, may not have been vaccinated as it was no longer a requirement.

That said, over 97% of Old Dominion students were fully-vaccinated before the mandate was lifted, with 99.7% of students staying on campus fully-vaccinated.

However, until and unless we know that Imo Essien was ever vaccinated against COVID-19, it is wrong for anyone to blame his “collapse” on the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Imo Essien was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it is impossible for the COVID-19 vaccine to cause his “collapse” as he would have received his doses at least 12 months ago!

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #6 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

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

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

Are Push Pocket Criminals Targeting Tourists In KL?!

Are criminals using new push pocket tactics to target foreigners and tourists in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia?!

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

 

Claim : KL Criminals Are Using New Push Pocket Tactics!

People are sharing this message about the new Push Pocket crimes in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

It’s a long message, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts.

Genuine message posted by a law firm in Malaysia. If you’re going to KL, take note!

PUSH-POCKET IN KUALA LUMPUR

I am sure you all have heard of ‘pick pocket’. A new trend ‘push pocket’. Read on.. for your own good.

A few days ago a new type of crime has surfaced in town. It goes something like this:-

Somebody slips a hand-phone into your pocket, sometimes it could be just a wallet with an identity card and a few ringgit.

Recommended : Why NYPD Arrested Dax Tejera’s Wife After His Death!

 

Truth : KL Criminals Are Not Using New Push Pocket Tactics!

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

Fact #1 : Push Pocket Is A Form Of Extortion

The so-called Push Pocket tactic is nothing new. It is a type of extortion scam, in which the criminal accuses the victim of being a thief – in a reversal of the usual pickpocket tactic.

A similar kind of tactic, called Zig-Zag, was reportedly being used in airports in Thailand, where tourists were allegedly accused of shoplifting in duty-free shops, and had to pay fees to avoid arrest.

Fact #2 : Viral Push Pocket Message Date Back To 2008

This viral message about the push pocket scam in Kuala Lumpur isn’t new. As far as I can tell, it dates back to at least 2008, when it was even shared on TripAdvisor by worried tourists.

It was given some prominence when The Star asked people to “beware of the push pocket scam” in October 2009. Since then, it has been reposted regularly in forums, on social media platforms, and WhatsApp groups.

Fact #3 : PDRM Has Received No Reports On Such Scams

After the message went viral again in January 2023, the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) chimed in on the controversy on January 4, 2023.

PDRM secretary, Deputy Commissioner Datuk Norsiah Mohd Saaduddin said that checks showed PDRM has never received any report about such scams.

The public are urged to not fall for messages that have no basis and are not verified. Sharing or spreading such news can cause unrest and worry amongst the public.

Recommended : China Caught Lab Workers Paid To Spread Covid-19?!

Fact #4 : Malaysia Has Laws + CCTV Cameras

Frankly speaking, it is improbable for such crimes to be committed, at least in airports and LRT or MRT stations, because they are covered by CCTV cameras. Malaysia is also not a lawless country, where police officers are blatantly corrupt and turn a blind eye to such crimes.

If a foreigner is accused of stealing from a local resident, the police in Malaysia will investigate and the CCTV footage will show that the foreign tourist did not steal anything.

And if there’s no CCTV footage, it doesn’t mean the foreign tourist gets jailed automatically. That means there is no evidence the foreign tourist stole the item, and therefore, the police have no right to arrest him/her.

Did US Gov Steal $50 Trillion Gold + Oil From Iraq?!

Did the US government steal $50 trillion worth of gold and oil from Iraq?!

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

 

Claim : US Stole Gold + Oil From Iraq Worth $50 Trillion!

People are sharing photos of US soldiers posing with gold bars, as evidence that the United States sold gold and oil from Iraq worth tens of trillions of dollars!

These pictures have been revived as part of the information warfare surrounding the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Here the US thieves in Iraq. Bringing democracy aka stealing a country’s gold. Same thing they want to do in Russia. But Russia is no Iraq or Libya.

The #US ransacked and plundered the whole of #Iraq. Banks, museums, all of their gold reserves. The US is the biggest gang of thiefs in the whole history. They have raped most of the planet in the last 50 years. #Ukraine #UkraineRussianWar #UkraineRussiaWar #Russia #Putin #NATO

🇺🇸 “liberates” gold & oil while 🇷🇺 liberates humans.

#Denaƶification & #Demilitarization of #UkroNaƶiLand

 

Truth : US Did Not Steal Gold + Oil From Iraq At All!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and/or propagated to deflect criticism of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : US Did Not Steal $30 Trillion Of Iraqi Oil

Claims that the US stole $30 trillion worth of oil from Iraq are false. The United States did lose track of 8.7 billion dollars worth of Iraqi funds though.

After the invasion of Iraq concluded, Iraqi oil was sold to help fund the Development Fund of Iraq (DFI).

Other sources of funds include surplus funds (about USD 10 billion) from the UN Oil-For-Food Program, and the sale of seized Iraqi assets. The United States did not truck away Iraqi oil, as claimed.

In July 2010, the US Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) discovered that the US Department of Defense could not account properly for USD 8.7 billion of DFI funds.

This led the Iraqi Parliament to request the United Nation’s help in demanding that the US return $17 billion of “oil money” that it said was stolen from the Iraqi people :

All the indications are that the institutions of the United States of America committed financial corruption by stealing the money of the Iraqi people, which was allocated to develop Iraq, (and) that it was about $17 billion.
… Our committee decided to send this issue to you … to look into it and restore the stolen money.

There is no evidence that the unaccounted money was repatriated to the United States, or officially taken by the United States.

Even assuming that it was not poor accounting and all of the $8.7 billion was truly stolen, that is a far cry (0.029%) from the $30 trillion that was “allegedly” stolen.

It is also rendered ludicrous by the fact that the United States spent USD 60 billion in the reconstruction of Iraq.

Also consider the fact that Iraqi oil production only reached 4.4 million barrels per day in 2016. Assuming an average sale price of USD 60 per barrel, it would take them 311 years to sell enough oil to make $30 trillion.

Stealing $30 trillion worth of oil would require 1.7 billion oil trucks, or 46,000 of these trucks every day for 100 years!

Fact #2 : US Did Not Steal $20 Trillion Of Iraqi Gold

The United States also did not steal gold from Iraq, certainly not $20 trillion worth of gold!

All those photos of US soldiers with Iraqi gold bars are genuine, but they only show them taking photos with the gold they seized in Iraq.

The Iraqi gold bars (as well as currency and other valuables) that US soldiers seized were transported to the US Army’s headquarters in Kuwait.

There, they were examined by the Secret Service and/or the US Department of Treasury to determine their authenticity and value, before being returned to the Central Iraqi Treasury or the Development Fund of Iraq (DFI).

This is a picture of Lt. Col. Scott Schmidt, who was in charge of the 230th Finance Battalion. The battalion’s job was to seize Iraqi assets like currency, gold bars and other valuables.

In 2003, Iraq had under 6 tonnes of gold reserves, worth less than $70 million. So how can the United States possibly steal 20 trillion dollars worth of gold from Iraq? $20 trillion worth of gold would weigh at least 1,714,285 tonnes in 2003.

Guess how much gold mankind has ever mined in history? Only 205,238 tonnes as of January 2023 – which is less than 12% of what people are claiming that the United States stole from Iraq.

As of January 2023, the value of all the gold in the world is only USD 9.6 trillionless than half of what the conspiracy theory claims the United States stole from Iraq… and that’s only because gold prices have gone up considerably.

Even with the much higher gold price, it would take an additional 90 years of mining gold before the entire world has $20 trillion worth of gold for the US to steal.

Did Damar Hamlin Get Vaccine Before His Collapse?!

Did Damar Hamlin receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose just 7 days before his sudden collapse on the field?!

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

 

Claim : Damar Hamlin Received Vaccine 7 Days Before Collapse!

People are sharing a screenshot of a tweet by Dr. Benjamin Eidelman, who claimed that he gave Damar Hamlin a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose 7 days before his sudden collapse on the field.

Dr. Eidelman also claimed that Damar Hamlin passed “all screenings with flying colors”, and that he was in contact with the medical staff treating Hamlin to help them.

I recently administered Damar Hamlin’s Covid booster on 12/26, and as a medical professional, I can assure the public he passed all screenings with flying colors. I am in contact with the UCMC staff and will provide any assistance to them.

Read more : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

 

Truth : Damar Hamlin Did Not Get Booster Dose 7 Days Before Collapse!

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

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

Fact #1 : Damar Hamlin Collapsed After Getting Hit

On Monday, January 2, 2023, the Buffalo Bills were playing against the Cincinnati Bengals, when Damar Hamlin was hit in the chest while trying to tackle Bengals receiver Tee Higgins. He stood up briefly before suddenly collapsing.

Medical personnel rushed to his aid, gave him CPR and successfully resuscitated him with an automated external defibrillator (AED). After working on him for about 16 minutes, they transported him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

There, Hamlin apparently suffered another cardiac arrest, and had to be resuscitated again. He later gained consciousness but could not breathe on his own. So he was sedated and put on a ventilator.

Because Damar Hamlin collapsed roughly six seconds after getting hit in his chest, he possibly suffered a rare cardiac event called Commotio cordis, where the blunt force trauma triggers a ventricular fibrillation, leading to a cardiac arrest.

In short – his sudden collapse on the field was likely a result of getting hit in the chest, and had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine.

Read more : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #2 : Doctors Are Not Allowed To Reveal Health Information

Medical privacy laws like HIPAA prevent doctors and other healthcare providers from sharing their patient’s health information without their expressed consent.

Since Damar Hamlin has largely been sedated and intubated at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center since his collapse, it is impossible for him to consent to something like that.

And it would be rather ludicrous for any doctor of his to bring up the topic of his booster dose vaccination, instead of his immediate physical condition.

Fact #3 : Dr. Benjamin Eidelman Was Not Damar Hamlin’s Doctor

While the tweet makes it sound like Dr. Benjamin Eidelman was Damar Hamlin’s doctor, that does not appear to be the case.

For one thing – in his Twitter account (now deleted), Dr. Benjamin Eidelman did not call himself a medical doctor. Instead, he labelled himself as an “Artist, Data scientist, Disinformation/deception/fraud detector, Democracy Enjoyer, Politics and news commentator“.

The only Dr. Benjamin Eidelman who is a medical doctor with online presence is a completely different man (as this photo comparison shows).

The (fake) Dr. Benjamin Eidelman appears to be a man in his early thirties, while Dr. Benjamin H. Eidelman is a neurologist based in Jacksonville, Florida. Incidentally, the Buffalo Bills are based in New York, so it wouldn’t make sense for their players to get vaccinated by a doctor in Florida, especially when he’s a neurologist!

Recommended : Beware Of Fake Damar Hamlin Donation Requests!

Fact #4 : Booster Dose Does Not Require Screening Tests

Anyone who has gotten the COVID-19 vaccine would know that it’s a simple jab. There is no need for any medical screening.

Only people who have never been vaccinated will claim / believe that Dr. Benjamin Eidelman conducted screening tests of Damar Hamlin before giving him the booster dose.

Fact #5 : Dr. Benjamin Eidelman Wiped His New Accounts

Dr. Benjamin Eidelman claimed to have vaccinated Damar Hamlin on December 26, which is Boxing Day – the day after Christmas.

Although Boxing Day isn’t a public holiday in the United States, Christmas 2022 fell on a Sunday, so Boxing Day became a holiday in lieu of the usual Christmas Day holiday. Therefore, it is very unlikely that any clinic / hospital would be offering COVID-19 booster doses on December 26, 2022.

Getting a booster dose isn’t so urgent that it must be done on a holiday. Damar Hamlin would likely be enjoying Christmas and Boxing Day with his family (in Pittsburgh), and so would the real Dr. Benjamin Eidelman.

Fact #6 : Dr. Benjamin Eidelman Wiped His New Accounts

The Twitter account called Dr. Benjamin Eidelman (@drbeneidelman) is really new. It was created in December 2022, with the first tweet posted on December 17. It was also the same day, he created his Substack account.

Both accounts were deleted on January 3 – a day after he posted the tweet on giving Damar Hamlin the booster dose.

Scam Alert : Fake Damar Hamlin Donation Requests!

Please watch out for fake donation requests for Damar Hamlin who suffered a cardiac arrest during a primetime NFL game!

 

Scam Alert : Fake Damar Hamlin Donation Requests!

After Damar Hamlin suddenly collapsed from cardiac arrest during the primetime NFL game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals, his GoFundMe page has exploded with donations – at publication time, it raised over $7.7 million!

However, scammers are apparently also trying to milk public concern for Damar Hamlin, and his family relayed a warning through his friend and marketing rep, Jordon Rooney, about people requesting cash app and GoFundMe donations in his name.

Damars parents wanted me to get this out there:

Beware of people requesting cash app donations and making GoFundMe’s.

If you do want to support Damar’s foundation, his initial toy drive campaign has turned into the central location for that.

Recommended : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

 

Damar Hamlin Donation Shifted From GoFundMe To Website

To avoid further confusion, the Chasing M’s Foundation created a new website to handle the donations directly.

When Rooney announced the new website, he shared that Chasing M’s Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organisation that is dedicated to “supporting the aspirations of youth and community members through sports, education, and enrichment opportunities“.

The executive director, Mario Hamlin, ask that people who wish to donate to the foundation, please do so through the new website. He also asked that people consider donating to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center trauma center, or buy your trauma center team and first responders lunch.

The Hamlin family appears to be making these moves to curb the donation scams that have mushroomed over public support for Damar Hamlin.

So please do NOT donate to any other Damar Hamlin initiatives, cash app requests, or GoFundMe pages. The only legitimate avenues for donations towards Damar Hamlin are:

  • The Chasing M’s Foundation website
  • University of Cincinnati Trauma Center

Alternatively, you can show your appreciation for first responders and trauma teams in your area, by buying them lunch.

The Real Damar Hamlin Donation GoFundMe Page!

When he was still in college at the University of Pittsburgh, Damar Hamlin started a toy drive on GoFundMe called The Chasing M’s Foundation Community Toy Drive.

Its first program with a 2020 Community Toy Drive, which set a goal of just $2,500 to buy toys for “children who have been hardest hit by the pandemic”.

As I embark on my journey to the NFL, I will never forget where I come from and I am committed to using my platform to positively impact the community that raised me. I created The Chasing M’s Foundation as a vehicle that will allow me to deliver that impact, and the first program is the 2020 Community Toy Drive. 

This campaign gives you the opportunity to contribute to our first initiative and positively impact children who have been hardest hit by the pandemic. 100% of the funds raised will go toward the purchase of toys for kids in need. The time to act is now, as we will be distributing toys on December 22nd from 3:30 to 5:30 PM from Kelly and Nina’s Daycare Center at 800 Russellwood Ave., McKees Rocks, PA 15136. 

If you are not able to contribute monetarily, you can support this initiative in other ways. We are accepting donated toys at the Daycare Center or simply spread the word by sharing this fundraiser on your social channels. 

Thank you so much for supporting me on and off the field. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with you to help make the holiday season a little brighter for the kids in our community.

Damar Hamlin
The Chasing M’s Foundation

After Damar Hamlin’s sudden collapse on the field, and subsequent hospitalisation in critical condition, his family reused the GoFundMe page to continue funding his community initiatives.

This fundraiser was initially established to support a toy drive for Damar’s community, sponsored by the Chasing M’s Foundation.

However, it has received renewed support in light of Damar’s current battle and we can’t thank all of you enough. Your generosity and compassion mean the world to us.

If you would like to show your support and contribute to Damar’s community initiatives and his current fight, this is the place to do so. This is the only current fund that is being used by the Hamlin Family.

Again, thank you for your thoughts, prayers and generous support during this time.

Damar created The Chasing M’s Foundation to use as a vehicle to bring lasting impact to his community. The foundation supports toy drives, back-to-school drives, kids camps, and more.

 

Damar Hamlin Donation Not Used To Support His Mother’s Daycare

Jordon Rooney also clarified that the official Damar Hamlin GoFundMe donation page is not being used to fund his mother’s daycare centre.

He explained that it was set up as a toy drive during his college days, and the toy giveaway was held at his mother’s daycare centre. Hence, the address listed in the GoFundMe is still his mother’s daycare centre.

Donations sent to his official GoFundMe would be used to support his foundation, which now does more than just toy drives, but also back to school drives, kids camps and more.

This came after sports business analyst Darren Rovell posted that the Damar Hamlin’s official GoFundMe would fund his mother’s daycare centre.

Damars GoFundMe does not support his mother’s daycare.. This was a toy drive that he set when he was in college and held it at the daycare.

The donations will support his foundation, which does toy drives, back to school drive, kids camps and more. Yeah

Damar Hamlin Shows Improvement, Asked Who Won!

Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin has shown remarkable improvement, and even asked who won the game!

 

Damar Hamlin Shows Remarkable Improvement

Damar Hamlin remains in critical condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center (UCMC), after suddenly collapsing on the field from a cardiac arrest.

However, doctors at UCMC said that he has shown “remarkable improvement over the past 24 hours“, and appears to be “neurologically intact“.

According to a statement by the Buffalo Bills, the doctors say that “his lungs continue to heal“, and “he is making steady progress“.

Per the physicians caring for Damar Hamlin at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Damar has shown remarkable improvement over the past 24 hours. While still critically ill, he has demonstrated that he appears to be neurologically intact. His lungs continue to heal and he is making steady progress.

We are grateful for the love and support we have received.

The news was much welcomed by his teammates, and brought a lot of smiles at One Bills Drive.

Read more : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

 

Damar Hamlin Asked – Who Won The Game?

Damar Hamlin remained on the ventilator but is apparently now conscious. While not being able to talk (while on the ventilator), he wrote and asked the doctors who won the game!

The doctor responded, “Damar, you won – you won the game of life“.

That brought a smile to Bengals receiver Tee Higgins who said, “I had a smile when I heard because that’s something I would’ve asked too.

It was Higgins who hit Hamlin in the chest while he was being tackled during the Monday night football game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Buffalo Bills on January 2.

Damar Hamlin got up after that tackle but suddenly collapsed from a cardiac arrest that many people have blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines, but is possibly the result of a rare commotio cordis.

Sudden cardiac arrests (without preceding blunt force trauma) are also rather common in young athletes – about 2,000 young athletes in the United States die from it every year.

Damar Hamlin Donations : New Updates!

Damar Hamlin’s close friend and marketing rep, Jordon Rooney, also announced a new website for the Chasing M’s Foundation that Hamlin founded many years earlier – ChasingMsFoundation.com.

He also shared that Chasing M’s Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organisation that is dedicated to “supporting the aspirations of youth and community members through sports, education, and enrichment opportunities“.

The executive director, Mario Hamlin, ask that people who wish to donate to the foundation, please do so through the new website. He also asked that people consider donating to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center trauma center, or buy your trauma center team and first responders lunch.

Lil Keed : Cause of Death Revealed, Not From Vaccine!

An autopsy was conducted on Lil Keed, and it confirmed that he did not die from liver failure caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

Updated @ 2023-01-05 : Added Lil Keed’s cause of death and final autopsy + coroner’s report.
Updated @ 2022-06-13 : Added LA County medical examiner’s comments.
Updated @ 2022-05-15 : Added Lil Gotit’s description of Lil Keed’s last moments.

Originally posted @ 2022-05-14

 

Claim : Lil Keed Died From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine!

Within hours of the news breaking that Atlanta rapper Lil Keed died, Jason Pires from Vancouver Times posted a story that claims he died from the Pfizer vaccine!

Rapper Lil Keed died from liver failure after taking the experimental Covid-19 vaccine, according to the doctors that treated him. Lil Keed originally objected to the vaccine, but his brother put pressure on him, and he accepted.

The rapper, from Atlanta, whose real name is Raqhid Render, had worked with numerous high profile artists over the years. Lil Keed was only 24 when he passed away.

His brother, Lil Gotit, confirmed the story with reporters at the Vancouver Times. His family plans on filing a lawsuit against Pfizer for wrongful death.

 

Truth : Lil Keed Did Not Die From Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times appears to be a copy of the infamous Conservative Beaver – a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”. This time, they didn’t even bother to park it under their “Satire” section.

They revealed their true nature in their About Us section, hidden at the very bottom of the page, after a long list of comments.

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

We are not affiliated with the mainstream media (CBC, CTV etc.) in any way, and any similarities between our content and the work of the MSM is purely coincidental.

Earlier, they created and propagated the fake story that Gilbert Gottfried’s wife said that he was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine.

They also created the fake story that Pfizer Vice President Rady Johnson was arrested and charged with multiple counts of vaccine fraud!

Read more : Was Pfizer VP Rady Johnson Arrested For Vaccine Fraud?!

Fact #2 : Lil Keed’s Cause Of Death Was Eosinophilia

Lil Keed (born Raqhid Jevon Render on March 16, 1998) died on May 13, 2022, hours after going to the Burbank Hospital with complains of stomach and back pain at around 7:30 PM.

Vancouver Times claimed that Lil Keed died from liver failure after taking the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. That has been definitely proven wrong when the Los Angeles County Medical-Examiner examined Lil Deed and released his autopsy report seven months later.

In their autopsy report, Lil Reed was determined to have died from natural causes, with the official cause of death listed as Sequelae of Eosinophilia (too many eosinophils – a type of white blood cell), with an unestablished aetiology (cause).

Severe eosinophilia is dangerous as the eosinophils can form aggregates that block blood vessels, causing stroke and respiratory failure if they block blood supply to the brain or lungs.

Eosinophilia can develop in people for no known reason – a condition known as idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome. And no – COVID-19 vaccines do not cause eosinophilia.

The coroner’s report noted that Lil Keed “had been sick in bed for 4 days with complaints of stomach and back pains” and that “his brother noted that [his] eyes were jaundiced and drove him to the hospital in a private vehicle“.

According to the coroner’s report, Lil Keed was hospitalised earlier in Georgia with stomach pain too, but “left against medical advice and did not seek follow-up care“.

Fact #3 : His Family Did Not Mention Vaccine Or Pfizer

Lil Keed’s younger brother and girlfriend were the only members of his family to speak about his death (so far).

Neither mentioned that his death was related to the COVID-19 vaccine, or that they plan on filing any lawsuit against Pfizer.

His younger brother, rapper Lil Gotit (real name Semaja Render) was the first to officially announce his death on Instagram :

Can’t believe I seened u die today bro I did all my cries I know what u want me to do and that’s go hard for Mama Daddy Our Brothers Naychur and Whiteboy #ImaHoldthisShitDown

Lil Gotit mentioned twice that he saw his brother die, but did not mention how he died. In his follow-up video (posted on Instagram by @theneighborhoodtalk), Lil Gotit said :

I watched my brother die… We rushed to the hospital, I looked in the man’s eyes like, ‘Damn, my brother gone. I told him I love him.”

Shit… It’s all like that now. Man, my brother with me, man, I’m good!

I took him to the hospital, n***a, I did it. You wouldn’t believe that my brother right now, he in the sky.

Quana Bandz, Lil Keed’s girlfriend and the mother of their 3-year old daughter, Naychur, also posted about his death on Instagram :

I love you sooooo much baby 🥺 what I’m post to do with out you😤I can’t breathe right sleep right nothing I don’t even wanna talk to nobody Keed I can’t take this why you leave US bru. What am I supposed to tell Naychur? What am I gone tell our new baby ? Keed I just told you the other day if you left me with these two kids I was gone loose my mind 🥺 my Mind is lost baby. You told me everything I’m sooooo sorry I didn’t fly to LA I know I could’ve saved you baby

Her post goes on for much longer, but not once did she ever mention that his death was related to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #4 : Lil Keen’s Vaccination Status Is Unknown

Lil Keed has never mentioned anything about the COVID-19 vaccine, or his vaccination status.

The claim that he objected to the vaccine is unsubstantiated, and was most likely created by Vancouver Times.

So is the claim that his brother – Lil Gotit – pressured him to get the vaccine. There is simply no evidence Lil Gotit forced his brother to get vaccinated.

Fact #5 : Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Is Not Experimental

The COVID-19 vaccines are only experimental whilst they are under development, or undergoing clinical trials.

They are no longer experimental once they successfully clear their clinical trials, and receive either an emergency use authorisation or full approval from a health authority like the US FDA or EMA.

The Pfizer vaccine received its full FDA approval on 23 August 2021, so this claim is completely bogus.

You should also know that no experimental vaccine can ever be administered to the public.

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

Please help us fight fake news websites like Vancouver Times – SHARE this fact check out!

And please protect yourself, and your family, by vaccinating them against COVID-19!

Damar Hamlin Resuscitated Twice, Still On Ventilator!

Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, who suddenly collapsed during a primetime NFL game, had to be resuscitated twice and is still on a ventilator!

 

Earlier : Damar Hamlin Collapsed After Tackling Tee Higgins!

On Monday, January 2, 2023, the Buffalo Bills were playing against the Cincinnati Bengals, when Damar Hamlin tackled Bengals receiver Tee Higgins.

Higgins hit him hard in the chest with his helmet, but Hamlin initially appeared to be fine. He stood up briefly before suddenly collapsing.

Medical personnel rushed to his aid, giving him CPR and trying to resuscitate him with an automated external defibrillator (AED). After working on him for about 16 minutes, they immobilised him and transported him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Damar Hamlin’s sudden collapse on the field has led to claims that he suffered from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect.

Damar Hamlin Resuscitated Twice, Still On Ventilator!

Damar Hamlin’s friend and marketing rep, Jordon Rooney, initially posted an update on his condition, stating that his vitals were back to normal, and implied that he was awake was still unable to breathe on his own.

Hence, the doctors sedated Hamlin so he could be intubated and placed on a ventilator.

His vitals are back to normal and they have put him to sleep to put a breathing tube down his throat. They are currently running tests.

His Buffalo Bills team also shared an update, stating that Damar Hamlin remained in the ICU in critical condition.

Damar Hamlin spent last night in the intensive care unit and remains there today in critical condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

We are grateful and thankful for the outpouring of support we have received thus far.

Later, his uncle Dorrian Glenn said that Damar had to be resuscitated twice. The medical team revived him on the field before putting him on the ambulance, but he ended to be resuscitated again in the hospital.

He confirmed that Damar was still in the ICU, and on the ventilator, but said that he was “trending upwards in a positive way”.

His heart had went out so they had to resuscitate him twice. They resuscitated him on the field before they brought him to the hospital and then they resuscitated him a second time when they got him to the hospital.

They sedated him just to give a better chance for him to just continue to heal better. We are just taking it day by day. It seems like he’s trending upwards in a positive way.

Right now they’ve got him on a ventilator. They are trying to get him to breathe on his own. He is still in ICU and sedated while they continue to administer medical treatment. I am thankful for the staff that have been working with him.

Glenn also said that he apparently suffered some lung damage, and is still unable to breathe on his own. Hence, Damar Hamlin still has to rely on a ventilator, and he was even flipped to lie on his stomach, to help increase blood flow to his lungs.

It has been heartbreaking. I’ve been up for 24 hours. It is good to support my nephew and be by his side. It’s tremendous to see the love and support there is for him. It’s truly amazing.

It’s still very much day by day. Once he gets out of the ICU I will feel better. My nephew is humble. He is going to be floored by the love.

His close friend and family rep, Jordon Rooney, also shared an announcement from Damar Hamlin’s family:

FROM THE FAMILY OF DAMAR HAMLIN:

“On behalf of our family, we want to express our sincere gratitude for the love and support shown to Damar during this challenging time. We are deeply moved by the prayers, kind words, and donations from fans around the country.

We also want to acknowledge the dedicated first responders and healthcare professionals at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center who have provided exceptional care to Damar. We feel so blessed to be part of the Buffalo Bills organization and to have their support. We also want to thank Coach Taylor and the Bengals for everything they’ve done.

Your generosity and compassion mean the world to us.

Please keep Damar in your prayers.

We will release updates as soon as we have them.”

THANK YOU, THE HAMLIN FAMILY

Recommended : Beware Of Fake Damar Hamlin Donation Requests!

His family also warned the public about people requesting cash app and GoFundMe donations in his name, and asked that all donations be directed to his official GoFundMe.

Damars parents wanted me to get this out there:

Beware of people requesting cash app donations and making GoFundMe’s.

If you do want to support Damar’s foundation, his initial toy drive campaign has turned into the central location for that.

Did Dax Tejera Die From Vaccine Heart Attack?!

Did ABC News producer Dax Tejera die from a vaccine-induced heart attack at just 37 years of age?!

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

Updated @ 2023-01-04 : Added more details about Dax Tejera’s heart attack and death.
Originally posted @ 2022-12-27

 

Claim : Dax Tejera Died From Vaccine-Induced Heart Attack!

Right after news broke that Dax Tejera died suddenly from a heart attack, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the ABC News producer was a victim of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Here are some examples on social media:

The sudden death of 37y male is shocking .Myocardits post covid vaccine is a possibility that should be explored My deepest condolences to the young family losing their beloved father

ABC News executive producer Dax Tejera, 37, died of a heart attack. COVID vaccines should immediately be pulled off the market.

ABC News producer Dax Tejera dead at 37 RIP, wake up this is not a tragic case this is Genocide by the vaccine manufactures, How many suddenly do we need to wake the F world up you could be the next person if you had the 💉.

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

 

Truth : Dax Tejera Did Not Die From Vaccine-Induced Heart Attack!

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

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

Fact #1 : Dax Tejera Died From A Heart Attack

Dax Tejera – an ABC News executive producer passed away from a heart attack on Friday, December 23, 2022. This was confirmed by ABC News President Kim Goodwin in a staff memo on Christmas Eve :

It’s with a heavy heart and great sadness that we share that our friend and colleague, Dax Tejera passed away suddenly of a heart attack last night.

As EP (Executive Producer) of “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” Dax’s energy, passion and love for that show, ABC News, and you, shined every Sunday morning. That same love was extended to his precious girls.

Our thoughts are with his wife, Veronica, the couple’s two young daughters, and the entire Tejera family.

Since then, more details have emerged about his death. Dax Tejera collapsed while walking back from dinner with his wife at a New York City restaurant. He was taken to Manhattan’s Bellevue Hospital in an ambulance, but died before he could reach it.

So let me be clear – Dax Tejera died from a heart attack while walking back from dinner. He did not die in his sleep, and he did not die from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect.

Read more : Why NYPD Arrested Dax Tejera’s Wife After His Death!

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

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

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

People have been dying from heart attacks long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

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

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting heart attacks, or dying from them.

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

Fact #3 : Unknown If Dax Tejera Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Anti-vaccination activists claim that Dax Tejera was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19. However, there is no evidence of that, as he never publicly revealed his vaccination status.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States where he lives, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Dax Tejera took his family to St. Barts for a holiday in July 2021, which some anti-vaccination activists are claiming as evidence he was fully vaccinated. That’s not true, because St. Barts allows both vaccinated and unvaccinated Americans to visit.

  • Fully-vaccinated American and Canadian travellers can visit St. Barthelemy without undergoing any PCR or antigen test.
  • Unvaccinated American and Canadian travellers can visit St. Barthelemy with a negative PCR test for COVID-19, taken within 3 days prior to departure, or a negative antigen test taken within 2 days prior to arrival.

So it is possible that Dax Tejera was never vaccinated against COVID-19. Until and unless we know his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that Dex Tejera died from the COVID-19 vaccine is lying to you.

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

Even if Dax Tejera was fully-vaccinated before his trip to St. Barts in July 2021, he cannot possibly be suffering from any vaccine side effects, because they appear within days, not 17 months later.

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

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

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

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

Read more : Vaccine Myocarditis Risk Less Than 1 In Million!

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity injuries to the vaccine; injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like myocarditis and TTS can be proven.

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

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

Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

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

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

Did Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Canadian cardiologist Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial die suddenly from vaccine-induced sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)?!

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

 

Claim : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial died over a year ago, but anti-vaccination activists continue to claim him as a victim of COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

Truth : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Did Not Die From Vaccine SADS!

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

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

Fact #1 : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Died In His Sleep

Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial (born Sohrab Rawle Anand Lutchmedial on October 15, 1969) was a Canadian cardiologist and the director of the interventional cardiology program at the New Brunswick Heart Centre.

Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial died in his sleep on Monday, November 8, 2021, at his Saint John home, after being on call the day before. Despite what some blogs have written, his cause of death was never revealed.

So anyone who tells you that he died of this or that cause is most likely lying to you.

Fact #2 : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Needed Major Surgery

A year after he died, Faisal Lutchmedial shared more details about his brother’s sudden death, stating that Dr. Sohrab knew that he was going to die younger than expected.

He even told his brother, Faisal, just a week before he died, that he was disappointed at his recent prognosis (of an illness that was not mentioned), and that he would need to have another major surgery sooner than expected.

He told me a week before he passed he was disappointed at his recent prognosis, he was to have major surgery again sooner than expected. Neither of us knew this would be one of our last conversations. But I am glad that I made the trip to see him. We ALWAYS made the time.

One year after I lost my brother, my best friend, I say to you, ALWAYS make the time. Life is too short, even for us that manage to live twice as long as he did. Do what you can to help everyone around you. Love and live with vigour.

While Faisal did not reveal what Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial was suffering from, or what major surgery he was supposed to have before his sudden death, it certainly sounded serious.

One thing is for sure – whatever Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial may have suffered from, it was certainly not a COVID-19 vaccine side effect.

Fact #3 : Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial Was Vaccinated, But Not Boosted

Like most doctors, Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial was vaccinated against COVID-19. In fact, he was one of the first two health care workers in the Saint John area to get the COVID-19 vaccine on January 17, 2021.

Anti-vaccination activists claim that he died right after receiving a third (booster) dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. However, there is no evidence of that.

In fact, it is impossible for him to receive a third, booster dose of any COVID-19 vaccine, because Health Canada only approved the Pfizer booster dose on November 9, 2021 – one day after Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial died.

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

It is impossible for Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial to have died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects, because he was fully-vaccinated at least 9 months before he died.

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

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

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

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

Recommended : Did Four Doctors Die Right After 4th Vaccine Dose?!

Fact #5 : SADS Is An Inherited Heart Condition

Even if Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), it has nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccines, because SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

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

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

Fact #6 : Claims Of Sudden Deaths By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

So far, claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Did NFL athlete Damar Hamlin collapse suddenly from vaccine-induced sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)?!

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

 

Claim : Damar Hamlin Collapsed From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Damar Hamlin collapsed suddenly during a primetime NFL game, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 24 year-old NFL athlete was a victim of COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

Here are some examples on social media:

I’m at the twitter command center right now and I can tell you that black people are MAD about Damar Hamlin and what the vaccine did to this young king.

Don’t take the vaccine. Don’t take any more boosters if you’ve already been vaxed. Damar Hamlin and many others have had issues. They will lie and say it’s something else. It’s not it’s the vaccine

The number of sudden collapses and deaths will continue to increase.
Damar Hamlin is just another number in a very long statistic of the safe and effective DNA altering MRNA “vaccine” shot.
If people wouldn’t be NPC’s then they would be burning down governments as of now.

Truth : Damar Hamlin Did Not Collapse From Vaccine SADS!

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

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

Fact #1 : Damar Hamlin In Critical Condition After Getting Hit

Damar Hamlin (born Damar Romeyelle Hamlin on March 24, 1998) is an American football safety for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League (NFL).

On Monday, January 2, 2023, the Buffalo Bills were playing against the Cincinnati Bengals, when Damar Hamlin was hit in the chest while trying to tackle Bengals receiver Tee Higgins. He stood up briefly before suddenly collapsing.

Medical personnel rushed to his aid, giving him CPR and trying to resuscitate him with an automated external defibrillator (AED). After working on him for about 16 minutes, they immobilised him and transported him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Hamlin was said to have a pulse, but in a critical condition, and unable to breathe on his own. He was intubated and given oxygen in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

The NFL issued this statement on Damar Hamlin’s sudden collapse on the field:

NFL STATEMENT ON BILLS-BENGALS GAME

Tonight’s Buffalo Bills-Cincinnati Bengals game has been postponed after Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin collapsed, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced.

Hamlin received immediate medical attention on the field by team and independent medical staff and local paramedics. He was then transported to a local hospital where he is in critical condition.

Our thoughts are with Damar and the Buffalo Bills. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

The NFL has been in constant communication with the NFL Players Association which is in agreement with postponing the game.

Damar Hamlin’s friend and marketing rep, Jordon Rooney, later posted an update on his condition, stating that his vitals were back to normal, and implied that he was awake was still unable to breathe on his own. So, he was sedated before being intubated.

His vitals are back to normal and they have put him to sleep to put a breathing tube down his throat. They are currently running tests.

On January 4, his uncle Dorrian Glenn said that Damar had to be resuscitated twice – on the field and in the hospital, and confirmed that Damar was in the ICU, and still on the ventilator.

His heart had went out so they had to resuscitate him twice. They resuscitated him on the field before they brought him to the hospital and then they resuscitated him a second time when they got him to the hospital.

Right now they’ve got him on a ventilator. They are trying to get him to breathe on his own. He is still in ICU and sedated while they continue to administer medical treatment. I am thankful for the staff that have been working with him.

Recommended : Beware Of Fake Damar Hamlin Donation Requests!

Fact #2 : Damar Hamlin Possibly Suffered Commotio Cordis

Sudden cardiac arrest happens quite often, even in athletes who appear to be in perfect health. In fact, over 320,000 adults in the United States alone die from sudden cardiac arrest every year, and about 2,000 of them are young athletes.

That is why many states in the US require automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places. That said, Damar Hamlin does not appear to have collapsed from sudden cardiac arrest.

Instead Damar Hamlin possibly suffered Commotio cordis, which is Latin for “agitation of the heart“. This is a very rare event, but is known to happen in sports that can result in blows to the chest, like baseball, American football, ice hockey, polo, rugby, cricket, softball, boxing, wrestling and martial arts.

Commotio cordis is an often lethal disruption of the heart’s rhythm, that occurs as a result of a blow to the chest. If the blow occurs at a very specific time – as the ventricles repolarises (resets), it will trigger the heart to go into arrhythmia, causing a cardiac arrest.

While commotio cordis can only happen when the blunt force trauma to the heart occurs at exactly in the ascending phase of the T wave, this risk is escalated during sporting activities, as the heart rate rises and increases the risk of a blow to the chest triggering Commotio cordis.

This is a form of ventricular fibrillation (V-Fib) and is not caused by any mechanical damage to the heart, or a pre-existing heart condition. The person collapses about six seconds later, as the ventricles are unable to contract properly.

In the playback videos that have gone viral, you can clearly see Damar Hamlin get hit very hard in the chest as he tried to tackle Tee Higgins. Although he was able to get up on his own, he collapsed almost instantly after that. That makes commotio cordis far more likely the cause of his collapse, than a simple sudden cardiac arrest.

Needless to say – his collapse had NOTHING to do with COVID-19 vaccines. In the following video, you can see Dr. Brian Sutterer – a sports medicine doctor, explain why Damar Hamlin likely suffered from commotio cordis.

Recommended : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Dr. Bernard Ashby, a vascular cardiologist and a medical school professor, concurred; stating that the video of Damar Hamlin collapsing after getting hit in the chest resembled commotio cordis.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Damar Hamlin Was Vaccinated

It is unknown if Damar Hamlin was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly stated his vaccination status, or his preference for or against the vaccines.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States or the NFL, at least for the coaches and players.

While the NFL strongly encouraged COVID-19 vaccinations, it only requires employees in contact with players to be fully-vaccinated. Surprisingly, coaches and players were not subject to any vaccine mandate, and all COVID-19 protocols were dropped in March 2022.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, for example, was notorious for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Until and unless we know his COVID-19 vaccination status, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he suffered any kind of vaccine injury.

Fact #4 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

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