Did WEF Order Govts To Arrest Climate Change Deniers?!

Did the WEF just order world governments to arrest people who oppose the climate change narrative?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Orders Govts To Arrest Climate Change Deniers!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that the WEF just ordered world governments to arrest people who oppose the climate change narrative!

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

WEF Orders Govt’s To Arrest Citizens Who Oppose Man-Made Climate Change Narrative

The World Economic Forum has ordered government’s to begin arresting citizens who oppose the man-made climate change narrative in a bid to persuade the masses that ‘global boiling‘ is a real danger.

Truth : WEF Did Not Order Govts To Arrest Climate Change Deniers!

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

Fact #1 : WEF Did Not Order Governments To Arrest Anyone

Let me start by pointing out that the WEF (World Economic Forum) did not order anyone to arrest climate change deniers, or people who oppose the fact that human activities have caused global warming.

If the WEF actually did that – it would have shocked the whole world, not only reported widely by the mainstream media, but criticised by people and governments. Yet, there was no such outrage… because it never happened!

In addition – no government has ever arrested and/or jailed climate change deniers for refusing to accept the fact that human activities are causing climate change.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article offered no evidence to back up its claim that the WEF ordered governments to arrest people!

Fact #2 : WEF Cannot Order Governments To Do Anything

I should also point out that the WEF cannot order any country to do anything. It is merely an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that focuses on public-private sector collaboration.

The WEF has no power over world leaders, beyond its lobbying and influencing efforts. The WEF may be an influential lobbying organisation, but it cannot order any government to do anything. That’s just silly.

Fact #3 : Jim Dale Does Not Work For WEF

The People’s Voice article suggests that Jim Dale represents the WEF in some capacity. However, that’s not true.

Jim Dale (LinkedIn profile) is an expert meteorologist, who founded the British Weather Services in 1987. He does not work for the World Economic Forum, not represent its views.

Jim Dale does not appear to be a WEF Young Global Leader either – he’s not in the alumni list. The link used by The People’s Voice as “evidence” only leads to a LinkedIn post in which he shared a WEF post about El Niño.

If that’s the criteria for being a WEF Young Global Leader, then everyone sharing a WEF post would automatically become a WEF Young Global Leader! How silly!

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

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

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

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

Can Holding A Sneeze Rupture Your Throat?!

Can holding a sneeze really rupture your throat?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Holding A Sneeze Can Rupture Your Throat!

People are sharing a video which claims that holding a sneeze can rupture your throat. Here is a transcript of the video:

A man was hospitalized after holding a sneeze. This is what happened.

A 34-year-old unnamed man pinched his nose and kept his mouth closed during a sneeze. He immediately felt a popping sensation in his neck, but didn’t think much of it.

Hours later, the man felt pain in his throat and his neck, and when it became swollen and his voice changed, he took himself to the hospital.

When doctors examined the soft tissue, they heard popping and cracking. That was because air bubbles were getting into the man’s muscles and deep into his tissue.

The man suffered a tracheal perforation, and in other words, the man blew a small hole in his throat. He was barely able to speak or swallow, so he was given antibiotics, and had to be fed through a tube for seven days.

A sneeze can propel mucus droplets at a rate of 100 miles per hour. If you hold in a sneeze, that pressured air has to go somewhere. If your mouth and nose are closed during a sneeze, the pressure in your upper airways could increase by up to 20 times.

So the next time you feel a sneeze coming, don’t hold it in.

Truth : Holding A Sneeze Will Not Rupture Your Throat!

This is yet another fake video circulating on WhatsApp, and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Man Perforated His Trachea After Holding In A Sneeze!

First, let me point out that no man has ever ruptured his throat while holding in a sneeze. What actually happened was a man suffered a tracheal perforation – a tear in his trachea (windpipe) after holding in his sneeze.

In November 2023, doctors in Scotland published a case report in which a man in his 30s perforated his trachea while holding in a sneeze. The man had a background of allergic rhinitis, and was driving a car, when he stifled a sneeze by pinching his nose and closing his mouth.

A CT scan of his neck and chest with contrast revealed that he had a small 2 mm x 2 mm x 5 mm tear in his trachea, which lead to pneumomediastinum – air leaking into the mediastinum (space in the chest), and surgical emphysema of the neck – air under the skin of the neck.

Fact #2 : Only One Case Has Ever Been Documented

While such tracheal perforations can be potentially life-threatening, they are extremely rare, and usually occur from corrosive injury, sharp and blunt force trauma, or during surgical or medical interventions like intubation, thyroidectomy, tracheostomy, inserting an oesophageal stent.

This is the first known case of a “spontaneous tracheal perforation following a sneeze”. That makes it an extremely rare occurrence.

That does not mean it’s a good idea to hold in a sneeze. As the authors point out – holding in a sneeze may cause the pressure in your upper airways to increase by up to 20 times.

Fact #3 : He Immediately Suffered Severe Neck Pain

The video wrongly claimed that the man only felt a popping sensation after sneezing, and only experienced pain and swelling of the neck and throat several hours later.

The truth is – the man experienced severe neck pain immediately after “pinching his nose and closing his mouth” to stifle the sneeze.

Fact #4 : His Voice Did Not Change, He Did Not Have Trouble Swallowing

The video also wrongly claimed that the man’s voice changed, and he had trouble swallowing.

The truth is – the man denied having any dyspnoea (trouble breathing), dysphonia (abnormal voice), or dysphagia (trouble swallowing).

Fact #5 : He Was Not Given Antibiotics

The video (and some news reports) also wrongly claimed that the man was given antibiotics.

Tracheal perforations like this often require surgical intervention, but the cardiothoracic surgeons who were consulted felt there was no need for surgery, as the patient was “systemically well with normal heart and respiratory rate, normal blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and body temperature“.

In the end, he was given drugs for his pain, allergic rhinitis and nasal congestion. The doctors specifically pointed out that he was not given any antibiotics.

Recommended : Did McDonald’s Lose Toxic Meat Legal Battle With Jamie Oliver?!

Fact #6 : He Was Not Fed Through A Tube For 7 Days

The video (and some news reports) also wrongly claimed that the man was fed through a tube for 7 days. The patient was only kept in the ward for 48 hours for close observation, and was never fed through a tube.

In fact, he was kept nil by mouth for the first night, just in case his condition deteriorated, and he needed to be intubated. That means he was not given any food, water, or medication by mouth.

The man remained clinically stable during his 2-day stay, and was discharged with medicine for his pain and allergic rhinitis, and advised to avoid strenuous physical activities for two weeks. Naturally, doctors also advised him to avoid stifling sneezes by pinching the nose with the mouth closed!

Did AstraZeneca mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine Kill Many People?!

Did the AstraZeneca mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 kill many people?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : AstraZeneca mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine Killed Many People!

People are sharing an article (archive) by Now The End Begins, which claimed that the AstraZeneca mRNA vaccine for COVID-19 has killed many people who took it.

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

AstraZeneca Becomes The First Domino To Fall As They Can No Longer Hide The Fact Their COVID mRNA ‘Vaccine’ Has Killed A Lot Of People Who Took It

AstraZeneca has admitted that its COVID-19 vaccine could cause a rare but deadly blood-clotting condition, potentially exposing the UK pharmaceutical giant to tens of millions in lawsuits brought by loved ones of those injured or killed as a result of the jab, according to court documents.

Recommended : AstraZeneca Vaccine Blood Clots : What To Look For?

 

Truth : AstraZeneca mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine Did Not Kill Many People!

This is yet another example of misinformation created or promoted by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : AstraZeneca Vaccine Is Not mRNA Vaccine

Let me start by pointing out that the AstraZeneca vaccine for COVID-19 is not an mRNA vaccine, as claimed in the Now The End Begins article.

The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, which is marketed as Vaxzevria and Covishield, is a viral vector vaccine based on the modified chimpanzee adenovirus, ChAdOx1. It is not based on the mRNA vaccine technology.

Anyone who tells you that the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is based on mRNA technology is either ignorant, or lying to you. Certainly, you should never listen to anyone who makes such a silly claim.

Fact #2 : AstraZeneca Submitted Legal Document On TTS Risk

According to news reports, AstraZeneca submitted a legal document to the High Court in February 2024, in which it acknowledged that its COVID-19 vaccine “can, in very rare cases, cause TTS“.

TTS, which is short for Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome, is a rare condition in which the patient develops a dangerous combination of blood clots and low platelets. TTS was previously known as Vaccine-induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT).

In a very small number of cases, the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine can trigger the immune system to create anti-PF4 (Anti-Platelet Factor 4) antibodies. These anti-PF4 antibodies attack the platelets, causing them to clump together and blood clots to form.

These blood clots are a little unusual in that they can develop in the large veins of the brain and/or abdomen and/or lungs, and are coupled with low platelet counts, leading to bleeding tendencies. However, the number of cases is very rare.

Recommended : Does COVID Vaccinated Blood Clot In Just 3 Minutes?!

Fact #3 : AstraZeneca Denies Any U-Turn

AstraZeneca denies that its new submission was a U-turn on acknowledging that its COVID-19 vaccine causes TTS.

Its new submission also states that what triggers some people to suffer TTS after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine is “unknown”, and TTS can occur in people independent of any vaccine. It also stated that “causation in any individual case will be a matter for expert evidence“.

Fact #4 : AstraZeneca Vaccine TTS Risk Was Known Since 2021

It has been acknowledged since April 2021 – 3 years ago, that the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine can potentially cause TTS in a very small number of people.

On top of that, it was not keyboard warriors or anti-vaccine activists who started warning people about TTS. It was health officials who first identified cases of TTS / VITT as early as March 2021 – just two months after the AstraZeneca vaccine was first deployed.

By April, the evidence was clear enough that health officials started warning people about the risk of TTS / VITT, and restricting the AstraZeneca vaccine to people over 30. They only offered the vaccine to people over 40 in May 2021.

On 23 May 2021, Australian and New Zealand health officials also issued a joint statement on the risk of TTS from the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, pointing out that TTS is “rare”, and can be “treated very effectively”.

Fact #5 : AZ Vaccine Did Not Cause Tens Of Thousands Of Deaths

The Now The End Begins article claimed or suggested that “tens of thousands of people” have died from the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

Yet the same article pointed out that only 51 cases have been filed in London’s High Court, or just “dozens” of class-action claimants. How does 51 or dozens transform into “tens of thousands of people”??? Magic???

Fact #6 : AstraZeneca Vaccine TTS Risk Was Very Low

Even though health officials were aware of the TTS risk by April-May 2021, they continued to offer the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine because the risk was judged to be extremely low – about one in 30 million.

Far fewer people – maybe one in 600,000, would die from TTS. In the United Kingdom, about 81 people died from blood clot complications linked to the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, after about 50 million doses were administered.

In August 2021, the Australian Academy of Sciences issued this infographic, in which it compared the risk of dying from TTS to other common risks.

Recommended : AstraZeneca Vaccine Blood Clot Risk : How Dangerous Is It?

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Blood Clot Risk Was Much Higher

What you may not know is that COVID-19 infections greatly increases the risk of developing blood clots – up to 41% in positive patients, and up to 95% in severe COVID-19 cases.

Blood clots can also develop (through different mechanisms) with smoking and the use of oral contraceptive pills (OCP). Back in May 2021, we created this table to better demonstrate the risk:

Risk Difference

severe COVID-19 cases

Was AstraZeneca vaccine finally exposed for causing TTS?!

Was the truth about the AstraZeneca vaccine causing a side effect called TTS finally exposed?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : AstraZeneca Vaccine Finally Exposed For Causing TTS!

Did Zelenskyy Buy Highgrove House From King Charles?!

Did Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy just purchase Highgrove House from King Charles for £20 million?!

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

 

Claim : Zelenskyy Bought Highgrove House From King Charles!

People are sharing a post by the Russian Embassy in South Africa (archive), which claims / suggests that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy just purchased Highgrove House from King Charles for £20 million!

Zelensky purchases King Charles’ Highgrove House – British media

Ukrainian president, whose term of office expires on 20 May, has bought Highgrove House from Britain’s King Charles III. This was reported by The London Crier, which has stated that the deal amounted to £20 million.

Grant Harrold, the king’s former butler, said that according to his information, the sale deal was completed on February 29, 2024, during the visit of Zelensky’s wife to the UK. The sale of Highgrove House was also confirmed by staff involved in maintaining the former royal residence. Most of them were laid off on March 21, 2024.

Also, on 12 January 2024, the UK government announced additional funding for Ukraine of £2.5 billion for 2024/2025.

Earlier, similar claims were made by Maria Dubovikova (archive), who calls herself a “prominent independent analyst and media expert”.

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

 

Truth : Zelenskyy Did Not Buy Highgrove House From King Charles!

This appears to be yet another example of Russian propaganda, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Highgrove House Has Not Been Sold

Let me just start by pointing out that there is no evidence that King Charles sold Highgrove House to anyone, never mind Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

In fact, the official Highgrove website still states that it is the family home of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, and it is still open for people to visit!

Fact #2 : Prince William Owns Highgrove House

While Highgrove House is where King Charles III and Queen Camilla occasionally stay, it technically belongs to the Duchy of Cornwall.

When Charles became King in September 2022, Prince William became the new Duke of Cornwall.  As the new Duke of Cornwall, Prince William is the official owner of Highgrove House, not King Charles.

So if Volodymyr Zelenskyy, or anyone else for the matter, wishes to purchase Highgrove House, they would have to ask Prince William, not King Charles!

Fact #3 : British Media Did Not Make These Claims

While the Russian Embassy in South Africa claims that British media made these claims, that’s not accurate.

These claims appear to originate from a single website, called London Crier, which describes itself as “London’s most trusted source of unbiased news“, but appears to be nothing more than a Russian-linked website designed to spread misinformation / disinformation.

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

Fact #2 : London Crier Is Brand New

London Crier claims to be a really old publication in its copyright footer – “All Rights Reserved – The London Crier, 1863-2023“.

The truth is – London Crier is a brand-new website whose domain was recently created on 26 March 2024 at 8:20 AM UTC (archive). On top of that, four snapshots (here, here, here, and here) showed that it wasn’t even operational at that time.

In fact, London Crier only appeared to go live on 2 April 2024, which was when the article on the Highgrove House purchase and a whole slew of other “articles” were published. Even then, it looked like a rushed job, with its Terms page filled with “Loren ipsum” placeholder text!

By 6 April, the London Crier appears to be offline. So much for “London’s most trusted source of unbiased news“…

Fact #3 : Many London Crier Articles Were In Russian

Even though it called itself “London’s most trusted source of unbiased news“, its articles not only push pro-Russian talking points, some were published entirely in Russian!

It appears that its creator(s) were translating Russian articles, and missed some of them! Here’s one example – Kremlin Accuses Ukraine of War Crimes (archive). That’s quite a remarkable demonstration of Russian professionalism!

Did Henry Cavill Help Nephew Prove Superman Is His Uncle?!

Did Henry Cavill go to his nephew’s school to prove that Superman is really his uncle?! Take a look at the viral story + video, and find out what the FACTS really are!

Updated @ 2024-03-29 : Updated with the latest details, and new video.
Originally posted @ 2021-01-27

 

Did Henry Cavill Help Nephew Prove Superman Is His Uncle?

This cute story of Henry Cavill going to school to help his nephew, Thomas, prove that Superman is his uncle, keeps going viral.

Whether they are posted on Facebook, or in “viral websites”, the story generally goes along these lines, with a picture of Henry Cavill walking his nephew to school :

The day Uncle Cavill had to prove his nephew was not a liar.

Little Thomas, aged only 7, went to school dressed as Superman and the teacher asked why he was dressed like this.

“Because Superman is my uncle,” he replied.

The teacher then explained that Superman didn’t exist, but Thomas insisted, repeating numerous times that he existed, and that he was his uncle. And the kid ended up at the office…

An officer was asked to see him, to warn the child not to live in a fantasy world.

As the doubt remained, she called her brother-in-law, asking him to go to school to “save” her nephew, who was radiant for all his little friends to see that he was really Superman’s nephew!

The news was confirmed in the last few hours by Cavill himself, reiterating that he had saved his nephew from a bad punishment, given his reputation for “telling lies”.

Henry Cavill Did Not Help Nephew Prove Superman Is His Uncle!

As endearing as this story is, it was really fabricated from an old but true story from 2011. Many websites and videos keep resurrecting this story to “go viral” and make money. Here are the facts…

Fact #1 : Superman Uncle Incident Happened In 2011

This incident involving his nephew, Thomas, actually happened in 2011 when Henry first learned that he would be playing Superman in Zack Snyder’s film. This was what Henry Cavill said in his 2013 interview with Jay Leno:

My nephew Thomas was so super excited… he ran to school. Now keep in mind Thomas has got a great reputation for telling stories and just making up stuff to the teacher.

He says, “Well, because my uncle is Superman,” and she’s like, “Oh okay, and she pulls him aside. He got in trouble. [She was like] “this is sad.”

Fact #2 : Henry Cavill Told The Story In 2013 + 2018

Henry Cavill not only recounted this incident in June 2013 in an interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, he also repeated the story to Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest on their show in July 2018.

So all those viral and celebrity websites that claimed that Henry Cavill confirmed this “in the last few hours” lied to you. This is a really old story.

Fact #3 : Henry Cavill Did NOT Go To His Nephew’s School

Thomas’ mother – Henry’s sister-in-law – then explained to the teacher that the boy’s uncle “actually kind of is” Superman.

She did not ask Henry to “rescue” Thomas, so he did not actually go to his nephew’s school to prove that Superman is really his uncle.

Fact #4 : They Were Not Walking To His Nephew’s School

The (fake news) creators misappropriated a photo to make it look as if Henry Cavill was walking his nephew to school to prove that his uncle really is Superman.

The truth is this was one of the photos taken of Henry, who was walking in London with his brother Niki and his family on 7 September 2013. They were NOT going to school to rescue Thomas, that’s for sure!

Fact #5 : Thomas Was Not 7 Years Old When It Happened

Henry Cavill did not mention how old Thomas was when this “Superman is my uncle” incident happened. But in a May 2021 interview with Viva Magazine, he said,

I have two nephews, aged 6 and 4. The older is known for telling wild tales in school and telling lies invented all the time. During one of the classes, the teacher asked pupils to talk about their family members, and what they do professionally. Then, the boy said: “My uncle is Superman.”

So we know that Thomas was 6 years old in 2013, and not 7 years old in 2021, 2022, 2023, or 2024, as many viral websites and social media posts are claiming.

We also know that the incident happened sometime between 2011 and 2013. so Thomas was likely between 4 and 6 years old at that time.

Little Thomas would be a strapping 17 year-old teenager in 2024. Even if Uncle Cavill offered to go to his school dressed as Superman, you can be sure he would definitely refuse the offer!

Is Prince Harry Involved In Diddy Sex Trafficking Lawsuit?!

Is Prince Harry now involved in a sex trafficking lawsuit involving Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Prince Harry Is Involved In Diddy Sex Trafficking Lawsuit!

Some people are claiming or suggesting that Prince Harry is somehow involved in a sex trafficking lawsuit involving Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs!

Dan Wootton : BREAKING: PRINCE HARRY NAMED IN P DIDDY SEX TRAFFICKING LAWSUIT.
But why did MSM ignore the story until I posted the documentation here on X?
Of course there must be due process, but the Duke needs to answer what he knew and whether he was involved..

Concerned Citizen : 🚨🇬🇧🇺🇸 Prince Harry named in P Diddy Sex Trafficking Documents

It’s not going well for the Royal Family right now is it?

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

 

Truth : Prince Harry Is Not Involved In Diddy Sex Trafficking Lawsuit!

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

Fact #1 : Prince Harry Was Not Named As A Defendant

The civil lawsuit, which was filed by record producer Rodney Jones Jr. (also known as Lil Rod), named many defendants in his lawsuit (PDF). However, Prince Harry was not one of them:

  • Sean Combs (Mr. Combs)
  • Justin Dior Combs (J. Combs)
  • Lucian Charles Grainge (Mr. Grainge)
  • Ethiopia Habtemariam (Ms. Habtemariam)
  • Kristina Khorram (Ms. Khorram)
  • Chalice Recording Studios (CRS)
  • Love Records (LR)
  • Motown Records (MR)
  • Universal Music Group (UMG)
  • Combs Global Enterprises (CGE)
  • John and Jane Does 1-10
  • ABC Corporations 1-10

Fact #2 : Prince Harry Was Mentioned In Passing

Prince Harry was only mentioned once in the entire 73-page lawsuit, and even then, only in passing reference to how Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs allegedly gained access to international dignitaries like him.

Affiliation with, and or sponsorship of Mr. Combs sex-trafficking parties garnered legitimacy and access to celebrities such as famous athletes, political figures, artist, musicians, and international dignitaries like British Royal, Prince Harry.

In fact, the lawsuit does not even claim that Prince Harry attended any of the “sex-trafficking parties” that Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ allegedly hosted. Prince Harry appears to have been “name dropped” as an example of celebrities associated with Combs.

Recommended : Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Fact #3 : Prince Harry Last Seen With Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs In 2007

Prince Harry was last seen publicly with Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs in 2007, when the rapper performed at a concert at the Wembley Stadium in London. To be clear – that concert was not organised by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, nor did he host allegedly host any “sex-trafficking party” after that concert.

It was a charity concert honouring Princess Diana on the 10th anniversary of her death, and featured appearances by Ye (then known as Kanye West), Natasha Bedingfield, Gillian Anderson, David Beckham, Ricky Gervais, and Lily Allen.

Since that concert, Prince Harry was never seen public again with Sean ‘Diddy Combs’, as far as anyone can tell.

Fact #4 : Prince William Was Seen With Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Too!

Interestingly, the lawsuit did not also name-drop Prince William even though he was also seen with Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs at the same 2007 charity concert!

In fact, it was well-known that the two princes hosted the memorial concert called Concert for Diana, and they helped to bring in many of the world’s best singers to perform, including Elton John, Rod Stewart, Tom Jones, and Pharrell Williams.

Like Prince Harry, Prince William was also not seen publicly with P. Diddy since that 2007 charity concert.

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

Fact #5 : Diddy Ruled Them Out For His Parties

In January 2011, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs actually told Graham Norton on his show that both Prince William and Prince Harry were too mature by then to party with him, so he would not be inviting them to his parties.

Graham Norton : I read that you want to get Prince William and Prince Harry to a Diddy party.

P. Diddy : I don’t think, not anymore. I meant before, you know… Trust me, they are off the list. Before, they were young bucks growing up. They were getting in a lot of trouble themselves. I was like ‘Hey why don’t you come hang out with me?”

Fact #6 : There Was No Media Cover-Up

Claims that there was a media cover-up, or the mainstream media ignored the story, does not appear to be legitimate.

There has been a deluge of media (and celebrity blog) coverage over this story, with scandalous titles screaming that Prince Harry was named in P. Diddy’s sexual assault lawsuit, to fact check articles (like this) pointing out that he was merely name-dropped in that lawsuit.

If there was any hesitancy on the mainstream media’s part to cover story initially, it is likely because they actually read the lawsuit and saw that Prince Harry was merely name-dropped, and was not involved in the lawsuit at all.

Did Kate Middleton Get Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did Kate Middleton get her cancer from the COVID-19 vaccine?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Kate Middleton Got Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine!

After Kate Middleton revealed that she was diagnosed with cancer, some people are claiming or suggesting that the Princess of Wales developed her cancer because of the COVID-19 vaccine!

William Makis MD : I’ve been very concerned about Kate Middleton being COVID-19 Vaccine Injured. I may have been correct.

If The Princess of Wales @KensingtonRoyal had COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines and then developed cancer, this could indeed be COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine Induced Turbo Cancer.

Because Turbo Cancer is being covered up by the medical establishment and media, her doctors, good as they may be, will NOT provide her adequate or appropriate cancer treatment.

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

 

No Evidence Kate Middleton Got Cancer From COVID-19 Vaccine!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news about COVID-19 vaccines, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No One Knows What Cancer Kate Middleton Has

Let me start with a quick summary of Kate Middleton’s shocking revelation that she has cancer.

After months of speculation, Kensington Palace released a video on Friday, 22 March 2024, in which Princess Catherine revealed that she was diagnosed with cancer. She did not specify the type of cancer she had, only that it was diagnosed after her abdominal surgery, and she was now undergoing “preventative chemotherapy”.

In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London, and at the time it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous. The surgery was successful. However, tests after the operation found cancer had been present.

My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy, and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.

Kate Middleton never revealed what cancer she has. Does she have ovarian cancer? Colorectal cancer? Endometrial cancer? She never so much as hint at what it was.

So how on Earth can anyone determine what cancer she has, never mind prove that her cancer was caused by her COVID-19 vaccination??? Using a crystal ball???

Fact #2 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist

I should also point out that there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and after billions of doses have been administered worldwide in the past 3 years – there is still no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

What Kate Middleton has described is similar to what many women have undergone. There is nothing to suggest that her cancer was caused by any COVID-19 vaccine, or went turbo because of it.

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti-vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Recommended : Are COVID-19 Vaccinated Blood Transfusions Dangerous?!

Fact #3 : Kate Middleton Was Vaccinated Almost 3 Years Ago!

Kate Middleton, who was the Duchess of Cambridge then, received her first COVID-19 vaccination on Friday, 28 May 2021.

Yesterday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum. I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout – thank you for everything you are doing.

It is unknown what vaccine she received, but she would have been fully-vaccinated by April if she received the Pfizer vaccine, or May if she received the AstraZeneca vaccine.

In other words – Kate Middleton was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19 almost 3 years ago! She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not years 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 or weeks.

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.

Was Kate Middleton murdered + replaced with body double?!

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Fact #1 : Kate Middleton Was Not Murdered

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #3 : Kate Middleton Was Seen Alive + Well

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact Check : King Charles III Just Died From Cancer?!

Did King Charles just die from cancer at the age of 75?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : King Charles III Just Died From Cancer!

Some people are claiming that King Charles III just died from cancer at the age of 75! Here are just some examples:

TRACKER DEEP : BREAKING: SOURCE REPORTS KING CHARLES HAS DIED AFTER SUCCUMBING TO PROSTRATE CANCER AT THE AGE OF 75

Recommended : Did British Royal Family Warn Of A Major Announcement Soon?!

 

No Evidence King Charles Died From Cancer!

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

Fact #1 : King Charles Did Not Die From Cancer!

Let me start by simply pointing out that King Charles did not die from cancer on 17 March 2024.

There was no announcement from official Buckingham Palace sources like its official website, or its official Instagram page, or its official X page.

If King Charles III actually died from any cause, it would have officially announced on the official website, and on the BBC. Yet, there has been no such announcement.

On the other hand, the UK Embassy in Ukraine officially announced that King Charles is not dead:

News about King Charles III death is fake

Fact #2 : King Charles III Death Announcement Is Fake

Other people are sharing what appears to be an official announcement by Buckingham Palace, which states simply:

THE FOLLOWING ANNOUNCEMENT IS MADE BY ROYAL COMMUNICATIONS

The King passed away unexpectedly yesterday afternoon.

Monday, 18th March 2024

Even though this announcement was dated today – Monday, 18 March 2024, it was not posted by Buckingham Palace. We also know that it’s fake, because:

  • The announcement does not appear to be formatted properly as previous official statements.
  • Statements issued by Buckingham Palace would not be labelled as issued by Royal Communications.

Recommended : Did Palace Aide Admit Kate Middleton Was In Medical Coma?!

Fact #3 : King Charles III Does Not Have Prostate Cancer

Here’s another clue why this is a fake claim – King Charles does not have prostate cancer.

On 5 February 2024, Buckingham Palace issued a statement informing the public that when King Charles underwent a procedure for benign prostate enlargement, his doctors discovered an unspecified cancer.

During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer. 

Buckingham Palace declined to reveal what type of cancer King Charles was diagnosed with, and would only confirm that it was not prostate cancer.

No further details are being shared at this stage, except to confirm that His Majesty does not have prostate cancer.

Fact #4 : No One Offered Any Evidence

Quite a number of people are claiming that an unnamed “source” reported that King Charles died from prostate cancer. However, none of them actually offered any evidence such a source exists.

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

Fact #5 : Rumour First Appeared In Russian Media

Interestingly, this rumour appears to have first appeared in Russian media, instead of the notoriously inquisitive and free media in the United Kingdom!

Russia’s Gazeta, for example, reported on its Telegram channel that Russian media reported King Charles III died, only to later update it with an announcement that:

Buckingham Palace told TASS that Charles III is alive. He continues to perform work duties and engage in private affairs.

Fact #6 : Rumour Came Right After Major Announcement Fake News

Coincidentally (or perhaps not), this rumour came right after people falsely claimed that the British Royal Family told people to look out for an impending major announcement.

No Evidence Royal Family Will Make A Major Announcement Soon!

There was no announcement on its official website, or its official Instagram page, or any official sources.

There may, or may not be, a major announcement soon, but the British Royal Family has not said anything. It certainly did tell people to watch out for an impending major announcement!

Fact #2 : Royal Experts Never Said Anything Either

Not even the usual royal experts / commentators have said that the Royal Family is about to make a major announcement.

They would never have kept quiet about such a juicy gossip. Yet none of them confirmed that any major announcement was forthcoming from the Royal Family.

Or perhaps, they were merely interested in trolling or gaslighting people for traffic and engagement, because that’s what makes money!

The Princess of Wales would be tired of having a public life as a royal

Recommended : Are Prince William + Kate Middleton Getting A Divorce?!

 

No Evidence Kate Middleton Plans To Retire From Royal Duties!

This appears to be nothing more than celebrity rumour created to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Rumour Started At The National Enquirer

Let me start by pointing out that the rumour appears to have started at The National Enquirer, the infamous tabloid that falsely reported that Kate Middleton was pregnant with twins! The rumour was then posted by Radar Online:

While Kate reportedly hasn’t officially decided, the 42-year-old keeps pushing back the date when she’ll return to public life.

“Kate’s desperate struggle with the constant pressures of life in the royal fishbowl has clearly taken a terrible toll on her physical and mental health,” a senior palace source told the National Enquirer.

“She spent weeks staying out of the public eye after her operations — and it’s only strengthened her resolve to quit,” the source added.

“William is beside himself over her decision,” the source told the outlet. “He’s stunned his wife could ever consider such a move.”

“He made sure she knew what she was getting into when she married him and she’s done a brilliant job,” the source continued. “He’s concerned she’s become emotionally unstable, but she insists she’s finally seeing clearly!”

Interestingly – no one else has been able to corroborate this new claim by The National Enquirer. Neither royal experts, or reputable media outlets. Not even other tabloids!

Recommended : Was King Charles Just Exposed For Raping Children?!

Fact #2 : Kate Middleton Should Start Royal Duties By Easter

Instead, palace sources refuted those claims, stating on 12 March, that Kate Middleton is “recovering well and will be back by Easter“. That’s just over 2 weeks away – on March 31.

Another palace source also told US Weekly that the Princess of Wales is “extremely eager to get back to work“:

Kate’s extremely keen to get back to work. This has been one of the most challenging months for Kate as a royal, and she’s praying the fuss [over the Mother’s Day photo] dies down as soon as possible.

Kensington Palace had earlier stated, back in January, that the Princess Catherine would only return to public life after Easter. So, it appears that the Kate Middleton is eager to return to royal duties, and is not trying to delay her return to public life.

But whether the Princess of Wales starts working by the end of this month, or in April, multiple sources have indicated clearly that Kate Middleton fully intends to return to her royal duties.

Again, no one has been able to actually show any evidence Kate Middleton intends to retire from royal duties.

In fact, the UK Ministry of Defense announced on March 5, that the 2024 Trooping the Colour would be “reviewed by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales” on June 2024. It was another indication she fully intends to return to royal duty.

That post, and related information, were removed the next day though, probably because they preceded the official announcement by Kensington Palace that the Princess of Wales was officially returning to her royal duties.

Recommended : Was King Charles Just Exposed For Raping Children?!

Fact #3 : Kate Middleton Posted The Mother’s Day Photo

Let us not forget (even though she probably wished it never happened!) that Princess Catherine posted that infamous Mother’s Day photo that Prince William took on his Canon camera, which she later edited.

Princess Catherine even posted the photo with her personal message (indicated by her C sign-off):

Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the last two months.

Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day. C

That is not the sign of someone who wants to leave the (harsh) limelight of royal duties and public life. If Princess Catherine wanted to retire, as some have claimed, she would not have bothered to have that photo taken, never mind actually edit the photo herself, and then post it with a personal message!

Instead, it appears that the couple decided to post that informal photo and message to reassure the public that the Princess of Wales was recovering well, and would soon be returning to public life.

Fact #4 : Kate Middleton Is An Adult

Let me just end by pointing out that Princess Catherine is an adult. She’s 42 years-old, and the mother of three children. No one can force her to return to royal duties if she doesn’t want to.

If she wants to retire from her royal duties, she will do so, regardless of what the British royal family wants. What are they going to do if she refuses? Bound and gag her and push her out with a smiley face mask???

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

Fact #1 : It Was An Old Claim

Let me start by pointing out that this isn’t a new story. The claim that Kate Middleton was placed in a medically-induced coma was made more than 1.5 months ago!

On 28 January 2024 – a day before Kate Middleton was discharged from the hospital after her abdominal surgery, Spanish journalist Concha Calleja claimed on the Fiesta show (archive) that the Princess of Wales’ life was “in great danger” after the operation, and they placed her in a coma.

The doctors had to take drastic decisions at that moment because of the complications that arose. The decision was to put her in an induced coma. They had to intubate her. There were serious complications that they didn’t expect because the operation went well, but the postoperative period didn’t go so well.

Concha Calleja then claimed that Kate Middleton’s recovered was “possibly going to require a lot of assistance“, and that “practically an entire hospital is being set up” in her home.

Fact #2 : The Claim Was Quickly Refuted

Calleja’s shocking claims were quickly refuted by Kensington Palace, with a palace source calling it “total nonsense”, and pointing out that she never even attempted to verify with the palace.

It’s total nonsense. No attempt was made by that journalist to fact-check anything that she said with anyone in the household. It’s fundamentally, totally made-up, and I’ll use polite English here: it’s absolutely not the case.

The very next day after Calleja made her shocking claims, Kensington Palace said that Kate Middleton. was discharged from the hospital, and had already returned home to continue her recovery.

The Princess of Wales has returned home to Windsor to continue her recovery from surgery. She is making good progress.

If she was ever in a medically-induced coma, it wasn’t for very long, because Kate Middleton only stayed for 13 days in the hospital!

But to be clear – there is no actual evidence that Kate Middleton was ever in a medically-induced coma.

Fact #4 : Concha Calleja Never Provided Any Evidence

Despite the denial by palace sources and Kate Middleton’s discharge from the hospital, Concha Calleja stuck to her guns.

I still stand by everything I’ve said, despite the regrets. I have touched nerves, and nerve always hurts, and that is what has happened. There has not been a single statement denying this, not a single one. I trust my source.

However, she noticeably did not provide any evidence to back up her claim, beyond what was allegedly said by an anonymous palace source. It is also uncertain how the palace aide would be privy to Kate Middleton’s condition, as she was still in the hospital at that time.

Fact #5 : Concha Calleja’s Claimed Were Never Corroborated

I should also point out that no other royal expert or journalist have been able to corroborate Concha Calleja’s claims. And it was not for the lack of trying, that’s for sure!

To date – the only person to ever claim that Kate Middleton was placed in a medically-induced coma due to post-surgical complications was Concha Calleja.

Fact #6 : Kate Middleton Was Seen Alive + Well

The People’s Voice article claimed that “the palace did not provide any proof to show that the Princess of Wales is alive and well“. Perhaps that’s because Kate Middleton was already seen in public…  at least TWICE!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Did Kate Middleton hint at divorce by not wearing wedding ring?!

Did Kate Middleton hinted at a divorce after she was spotted not wearing her wedding ring in the controversial Mother’s Day photo?!

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

 

Claim : Kate Middleton Hinted At Divorce By Not Wearing Wedding Ring!

Some websites and people are suggesting that Kate Middleton hinted at a divorce from Prince William, after she was spotted not wearing her wedding ring in the controversial Mother’s Day photo!

Music Mundial : Kate Middleton confirms she didn’t wear her wedding ring in her new photo. Neglect or declaration of divorce?

The new post for Women’s Day of the princess with her three children had a small signal of editing, which she later apologized for, confirming the photo is real and that she was conscious of the lack of her important jewel that symbolizes her union with Prince William.

Recommended : Are Prince William + Kate Middleton Getting A Divorce?!

 

No Evidence Kate Middleton Hinted At Divorce By Not Wearing Wedding Ring!

Let’s take a look at the claims, and see what the facts really are!

Fact #1 : Kate Middleton Edited Mother’s Day Photo

First, let me just give you a quick recap on the Kate Middleton Mother’s Day photo controversy.

In order of Mother’s Day in the United Kingdom, Kensington Palace shared a new photo of Kate Middleton with her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

Soon after, multiple photo agencies recalled the photo because it appeared to be a “manipulated” photo. In other words – there were signs that it was edited.

On 11 March 2024, Kate Middleton posted on their official @KensingtonRoyal account that she edited the photo herself.

Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing. I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused. I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother’s Day. C

To be clear – Kate Middleton never said that she edited out the ring. In fact, she made no mention of her engagement ring!

Recommended : Was King Charles Just Exposed For Raping Children?!

Fact #2 : Photo Was Taken By Prince William

I should also point out that the photo was taken by Prince William. If you look at the original post, you can see that it was labelled as taken by The Prince of Wales.

The exact date was not provided, only that he took it in 2024. So it could hypothetically been taken before her planned abdominal surgery on 16 January 2024.

If they were in the midst of a divorce, I highly doubt Kate Middleton would ask Prince William to take that photo!

Fact #3 : It Was A Mother’s Day Photo!

People are wondering – why isn’t Prince William in the photo? Simply explained – that was a photo for Mother’s Day. It would be very odd if Prince William was in that shot!

In fact, when it was Father’s Day, the couple released a photo of Prince William (alone!) with his three children, taken by portrait photographer, Millie Pilkington.

Does this Father’s Day photo, which was not taken by Kate Middleton, suggest that Prince William wanted to divorce the Princess of Wales??? Of course, not!

Recommended : Prince Harry + Meghan Confirmed Not Sleeping Together?!

Fact #4 : Kate Middleton Does Not Always Wear Her Rings

Kate Middleton does not normally wear her engagement ring – the massive (in size and cost!) sapphire ring that she inherited from Princess Diana. Instead, she often wears a Welsh gold wedding band.

Neither were seen in the Mother’s Day photo, but that’s not something shocking, because she was at home when Prince William took that photo. Many people don’t wear their wedding rings at home.

Others have pointed out that it is also possible that Kate removed her ring before her surgery, and had yet to put it back on because of swelling that had not subsided.

Is UK Giving Up Its Powers + Sovereignty To WHO?!

Is the UK about to give away its powers and sovereignty to the WHO by signing the Pandemic Treaty?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : UK Is Giving Up Its Powers + Sovereignty To WHO!

People are sharing a video posted by British MP Andrew Bridgen, in which he claimed or suggested that the UK is about to give away powers and sovereignty to the WHO through the Pandemic Treaty.

Andrew Bridgen MP : This morning, I asked @PennyMordaunt if we could have a statement on why this House is so content with giving away powers and sovereignty to the unelected, undemocratic, diplomatically immune World Health Organization.

And why did the Petitions Committee reject Petition 648609 which called for the UK to leave the WHO?

Previously, similar claims were made by other people and websites regarding countries giving up their powers and sovereignty if they sign the WHO Pandemic Treaty, which I covered in these articles:

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

 

Truth : UK Is Not Giving Up Its Powers + Sovereignty To WHO!

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

Fact #1 : Penny Mordaunt Called It Invented Drama

In the video, Penny Mordaunt – the current Leader of the House of Commons) called Andrew Bridgen’s question invented drama, because the Petitions Committee is responsible for such petitions, and not the House of Commons itself.

Well, I think there is enough to worry about, and focus on, and debate about, health-related issues, and all sorts of other issues, without inventing crises and drama where there is none.

Such petitions are sent to the relevant department responsible for the subject matter (source), with that department usually issuing a response (known as an “observation”) within two months. The Petitions Committee may then recommend further actions on the petition, or it may not.

In short – Penny Mordaunt pointed out that Andrew Bridgen knows that Public Petition 648609 would be decided by the Petitions Committee, and not the House of Commons itself.

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

Fact #2 : Two Debates Were Already Held Earlier

The Petitions Committee declined to schedule a debate for Public Petition 648609 (End the UK’s membership of the World Health Organization), because the House had already discussed the same issue in two earlier debates:

The Petitions Committee has decided not to schedule a debate on this petition.

Fact #3 : UK Is Not Giving Up Powers Or Sovereignty To WHO

The UK government had already responded to this petition on 17 November 2023, pointing out that it will never cede sovereignty to the WHO through any partnerships.

The UK Government will not end our WHO membership. We are committed to working with the WHO to tackle the world’s health issues. We do not and will never cede sovereign powers through our partnership.

In its full response, the UK Department of Health and Social Care also pointed out that:

the UK has been and will continue to be clear that we would not agree any amendments to the IHR or sign up to an Accord that would cede sovereignty to the WHO in relation to making domestic decisions on national measures concerning public health, such as, domestic immunisation programme rollouts and other similar measures.

Any new or amended domestic legislation necessary to reflect new international obligations under the IHR or the Accord would be made through the applicable parliamentary process. In all circumstances, the sovereignty of the UK Parliament would remain unchanged.

Recommended : Does UN Document Show New World Order Goals For 2030?!

Fact #4 : WHO Pandemic Treaty Does Not Affect Sovereignty!

If you download and read the zero draft, you will realise that it clearly states in Pages 10 and 11 that countries like the UK will continue to have the right to “determine and manage” their own healthcare initiatives, including how to tackle future pandemics.

3. Sovereignty – States have, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of international law, the sovereign right to determine and manage their approach to public health, notably pandemic prevention, preparedness, response and recovery of health systems, pursuant to their own policies and legislation, provided that activities within their jurisdiction or control do not cause damage to their peoples and other countries. Sovereignty also covers the rights of States over their biological resources.

Unless Andrew Bridgen and those who signed up for Public Petition 648609 did not read the Zero Draft, it seems impossible that they would not be aware that the WHO Pandemic Treaty would not affect any country’s sovereignty!

Did British Study Confirm 1 Billion People Now Have VAIDS?!

Did a British study confirm that over 1 billion people now have VAIDS from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : British Study Confirmed 1 Billion People Now Have VAIDS!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that a British study confirmed that over 1 billion people now have VAIDS (Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine!

British Gov’t Bombshell: ‘One Billion Vaccinated People Now Have VAIDS’

Recommended : Did Study Show COVID Vaccines Cause VAIDS In Children?!

 

Truth : British Study Did Not Confirm 1 Billion People Have VAIDS!

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

Fact #1 : Vaccine AIDS Does Not Exist

Let me start by pointing out that there is no medical disease called Vaccine AIDS or VAIDS – Vaccine-Induced Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. It appears to be something made-up by anti-vaccination activists to scare people.

AIDS is caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Nothing else causes AIDS. Certainly no vaccine, not even the COVID-19 vaccine, causes AIDS.

Robert Charles Gallo – one of the two scientists who independently discovered that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was responsible for AIDS, said in response to the 2021 claim by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro that COVID-19 vaccines cause AIDS:

[I]t’s hard to believe anyone would claim that the covid-19 vaccine causes AIDS. We know what causes AIDS.

I don’t know what your president said. So I don’t want to be too critical. But it is obvious that neither the covid-19 vaccine nor any other vaccine causes AIDS.

Fact #2 : British Study Does Not Even Mention VAIDS!

Curiously, The People’s Voice article does not link to the British study (N1-methylpseudouridylation of mRNA causes +1 ribosomal frameshifting), which you can read here.

Perhaps it’s because anyone who even skims through the study will quickly realise that it does not mention anything about VAIDS (Vaccine-Induced Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome). That’s not a surprise because VAIDS does not even exist!

So why would anyone claim that this study showed that mRNA vaccines cause Vaccine AIDS or VAIDS?!

Recommended : Majority Of Long COVID Patients Were Vaccinated?!

Fact #3 : Study Did Not Say 25% Of Vaccinated Are Now Suffering

The People’s Voice article claimed that the British scientists said that “at least 25% of the fully vaxxed population are now suffering extreme immune responses to the toxic chemicals found in the Covid shots”.

That’s not true – the British researchers did not say that 25% of vaccinated people are now suffering from extreme immune responses to the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

For one thing – it was ⅓, not 25% of the 21 vaccinated people in the study who developed “off-target proteins” caused by ‘slips’ along the mRNA sequence. On top of that, the researchers clearly pointed out that those “off-target proteins” did not produce any ill effects:

In collaboration with researchers at the Universities of Kent, Oxford and Liverpool, the MRC Toxicology Unit team tested for evidence of the production of ‘off-target’ proteins in people who received the mRNA Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19.

They found an unintended immune response occurred in one third of the 21 patients in the study who were vaccinated – but with no ill-effects, in keeping with the extensive safety data available on these COVID-19 vaccines.

To be clear – the British study did not conclude that any vaccinated person was harmed by the “off-target proteins” that can be produced by the current Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

Fact #4 : No Evidence mRNA Vaccines Cause Altered Cytokine Response

The People’s Voice article referred to another study which supposedly showed that a “sharp decrease in immunity following vaccination is caused by altered cytokine response“. That is not true either.

I actually wrote about that study, and what anti-vaccine activists have been writing about it in a separate article, Did Study Show COVID Vaccines Cause VAIDS In Children?!

Here’s the gist – the study also did not mention anything about VAIDS, and was only conducted on blood samples. The children participating in that study did not report any side effect or disease from their COVID-19 vaccinations.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

Fact #1 : No Evidence Elites Are Dying To Make Way For Antichrist

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thomas Kingston : Cause Of Death Was Not Vaccine SADS!

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

Fact #1 : Thomas Kingston Died From Gun Shot

Let me start by simply pointing out that Thomas Kingston did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine, because he died from a “traumatic head wound“, with a gun found near his body.

This was revealed at the Gloucestershire Coroner’s Court on 1 March 2024, in an inquest into his sudden death, after a post-mortem was conducted.

According to senior coroner Katy Skerrett, Thomas Kingston had lunch with his parents at their family home in the Cotswolds on Sunday, 25 February 2024. His father then took their dogs on a walk, and on his return, Thomas was not in the house.

His father later found Thomas Kingston with “a catastrophic head injury”, after forcing entry into a locked outbuilding, and a gun was found at the scene. Police and paramedics were called to the scene at about 6 PM, after an unnamed family member made a 999 call.

These brief circumstances are as follows. Mr Kingston was visiting his parents’ home in the Cotswolds. On February 25 2024 he ate lunch with his parents. His father went out to walk the dogs.

On his return Mr Kingston was not in the house and after approximately 30 minutes his mother went to look for him. His father forced entry on a locked out building when no reply could be gained.

He found Mr Kingston deceased with a catastrophic head injury. A gun was present at the scene. Emergency services were called. Police are satisfied the death is not suspicious.

post mortem has been undertaken by Dr Jones, a consultant histopathologist, and a provisional cause of death has been given as a traumatic wound to head.

Having been satisfied with identification, initial cause of death and the brief circumstances surrounding Mr Kingston’s death, I can formally open this inquest. I now adjourn it to a date to be fixed. That concludes the opening of the inquest into the death of Thomas Henry Robin Kingston.

The official cause of death for Thomas Kingston was “a traumatic wound to the head“. While the inquest did not expressly say so, it appears that Thomas Kingston committed suicide by gun.

Obviously, no vaccine – not even the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine – can pull the trigger of that gun to cause a traumatic wound to Thomas Kingston’s head!

Recommended : Did Andy Delort Collapse From Vaccine Death Spiral?!

Fact #2 : Unknown If Thomas Kingston Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Thomas Kingston was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Thomas Kingston was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless his family (or the authorities) reveal his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Thomas Kingston was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

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

Even if Thomas Kingston was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more than two years ago! He cannot possibly have suffered 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 or weeks.

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.

Did McDonald’s Lose Toxic Meat Legal Battle With Jamie Oliver?!

Did McDonald’s just lose its legal battle against Jamie Oliver over its toxic pink slime meat?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

People are claiming on social media that McDonald’s just lost its legal battle against British chef Jamie Oliver over its toxic pink slime meat!

Keep it Real : [McDonald’s loses the legal battle with chef Jamie Oliver, who proved that the food they sell is not fit to be ingested because it is highly toxic.

Chef Jamie Oliver has won a battle against the world’s largest junk food chain. Oliver proving how buyers are made.

Truth : McDonald’s Did Not Lose Legal Battle With Jamie Oliver!

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

Fact #1 : There Was No McDonald’s – Jamie Oliver Lawsuit

Let me start by pointing out that there was no legal battle between McDonald’s and Jamie Oliver. McDonald’s did not sue Jamie Oliver, and Jamie Oliver also did not sue McDonald’s.

Fact #2 : Jamie Oliver Did Not Target McDonald’s

Jamie Oliver did not actually target McDonald’s. So there is really no reason for McDonald’s or Jamie Oliver to sue one another.

In the episode of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution that aired on 12 April 2011, Jamie Oliver spoke out against Lean Finely Textured Beef (LFTB), which he derisively referred to as “pink slime”.

Fact #3 : Jamie Oliver Did Not “Discover” Pink Slime

While much has been made about Jamie Oliver’s “battle” against pink slime, he did not create that term, and he wasn’t even amongst the first to speak out against LFTB, which has been sold since 2001.

The term “pink slime” was reportedly coined by USDA microbiologist Gerald Zirstein in a 2002 email to his colleagues. He was, arguably, also the first to criticise LFTB.

I do not consider the stuff to be ground beef, and I consider allowing it in ground beef to be a form of fraudulent labeling.

Michael Moss from The New York Times posted not one article, but at least two articles on the safety of LFTB – on 3 October 2009, and then on 30 December 2009,.

Two years later, ABC News would air a series of reports on LFTB in March 2011. It was only after the extensive coverage by ABC News that Jamie Oliver actually featured LFTB on his show.

Fact #4 : LFTB Is Ammonia-Treated Beef Paste

Despite its gross sounding name and look, LFTB is simply meat that has been separated from the fat in beef trimmings, and treated with ammonia to kill pathogens like Salmonella and E. coli.

The LFTB technology basically recovers meat that would otherwise be wasted and thrown away. Think of LFTB as low-fat beef paste. Regular ground beef consists of about 30% fat, while LFTB only has about 5% fat.

Fact #5 : McDonald’s Stopped Using LFTB In 2011

McDonald’s announced on 31 January 2012, that it stopped adding Lean Finely Textured Beef (LFTB) to its burgers since the beginning of 2011, and that it was no longer available in its products since August 2011:

At the beginning of 2011, we made a decision to discontinue the use of ammonia-treated beef in our hamburgers. This product has been out of our supply chain since August of last year. This decision was a result of our efforts to align our global standards for how we source beef around the world.

In other words – McDonald’s made the decision to stop using LFTB in its burgers in early 2011 – months before ABC News or Jamie Oliver covered LFTB. It was only in August 2011 that all of its LFTB-based products were cleared out of its supply chain.

Fact #7 : Ammonia In LFTB Isn’t Toxic

Even though McDonald’s no longer uses “pink slime” in their burgers, I should point out that the amount of ammonia used in LFTB isn’t dangerous.

The amount of ammonia present in Lean Finely Textured Beef (LFTB) is actually comparable to ammonia levels present in existing foods:

Food Ammonia Level
American Cheese 813 ppm
Unblended LFTB 400-500 ppm
Ketchup 411 ppm
Onions 342 ppm
Blended Beef Patty
with 15% LFTB
200 ppm
Ground Beef 101 ppm

Ammonium hydroxide isn’t just used to treat LFTB meat trimmings, it is also used to produce a wide variety of foods like cheese, puddings, chocolate, and even as a leavening agent in bread. In fact, the ammonium hydroxide is classified as GRAS (Generally Recognised as Safe) by the US FDA, when used in appropriate concentrations.

Fact #8 : LFTB Uses Ammonium Hydroxide Gas

In his viral video, Jamie Oliver is seen showing a front loading washing machine filled with meat, with ammonia-based cleaning products in the background. He then pours from a bottle marked with “Ammonia” and a skull and crossbones symbol into a large tub filled with pieces of beef.

That is not an accurate reflection of how LFTB products are made, because the ammonium hydroxide used in the LFTB process is gaseous, not liquid. In addition, the LFTB process only uses the ammonium hydroxide gas to increase the pH of the separated meat trimmings, from 5.7 to 9.6 (source).

If there ever is a lawsuit over that Jamie Oliver video, he would be hard-pressed to explain how that demonstration accurately replicates how LFTB meat is really produced.

Does Pfizer Plan To Make Trillions Off mRNA Turbo Cancer?!

Did an insider reveal that Pfizer plans to make trillions off turbo cancer caused by its mRNA vaccine for COVID-19?!

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

 

Claim : Pfizer Plans To Make Trillions Off mRNA Turbo Cancer!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims or suggests that an insider just revealed that Pfizer plans to make trillions off turbo cancer caused by its mRNA vaccine for COVID-19!

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

Pfizer To Rake In Trillions From Turbo Cancer Deaths, Insider Claims

Recommended : Was Pfizer CEO found guilty of vaccine misinformation?!

 

Truth : Pfizer mRNA Vaccine Does Not Cause Turbo Cancer!

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

Fact #1 : Turbo Cancer Does Not Exist!

Let me start by pointing out that there is no such thing as “turbo cancer”, and there is no evidence that any COVID-19 vaccine can cause cancer, or make cancer go “turbo”.

Many cases of cancer go undetected until they become symptomatic. And sometimes, patients ignore those symptoms until they worsen.

Some cancers are also known “silent killers”, because they show no symptoms until they are already in an advanced stage, and have spread to other parts of the body. Such patients often die soon after diagnosis.

Hence, many people that were claimed to have died of turbo cancers were suffering from such “silent killer” cancers, or their cancers were actually diagnosed long before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Needless to say, anti-vaccine activists provide no evidence to back their claims that vaccinated people are dying from turbo cancer. Ironically, they even accused unvaccinated people (and fellow anti vaxxers) like Kirstie Alley of dying from turbo cancer!

Fact #2 : Mike Yeadon Lost Pfizer Job In 2011

Anti-vaccine activists and articles often label Mike Yeadon (born Michael Yeadon) as a Pfizer insider, or Pfizer’s Vice President and chief scientist. That’s not really true.

For one thing – Mike Yeadon lost his job as a vice-president of Pfizer’s allergy and respiratory research unit in Kent when it was shut down in 2011. So Yeadon is hardly a Pfizer insider, having left the company more than 12 years ago!

On top of that, Mike Yeadon never worked on vaccines. His former Pfizer research unit only developed drugs for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). If he had any insight into Pfizer’s “evil plans”, it would have been limited to its asthma and COPD drugs, not COVID-19 vaccines.

Recommended : Did Pfizer Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History?!

Fact #3 : Truth Be Told Rally Was Held In January 2023

It is odd that The People’s Voice article should only quote what Mike Yeadon said at the Truth Be Told Rally in London, because that event occurred more than a year earlier – on 21 January 2023!

Why would anyone dig up an old claim to resurrect in February 2024? They must be running out of new material to scare people…

Needless to say – there is still no evidence to back up any of those old claims. Even after more than a year, where is the evidence?

Fact #4 : No Evidence COVID-19 Pandemic Was Planned

According to The People’s Voice article, Mike Yeadon claimed that the COVID-19 pandemic was planned years ago. Neither The People’s Voice, nor Mike Yeadon, have ever provided any evidence to back up those claims.

If Mike Yeadon knew of such a plan as a former Pfizer Vice-President and chief scientist, why did he not reveal this before the COVID-19 pandemic? Why did he only mention this after the COVID-19 pandemic was declared?

He had a good 12 years to announce such a dastardly plan, from the time he lost his job at Pfizer, to the COVID-19 pandemic. If he exposed Pfizer before the COVID-19 pandemic, imagine how many lives he could have saved! So why did he not expose Pfizer earlier?

Fact #5 : Mike Yeadon Never Said Pfizer Plans To Make Trillions Off Turbo Cancer

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that Mike Yeadon was the insider who said that Pfizer plans to make trillions of dollars off turbo cancer caused by the mRNA vaccines.

Not only do mRNA vaccines not cause turbo cancer, it does not appear that Mike Yeadon ever made such claims at the Truth Be Told rally in London last year!

In fact, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence that Mike Yeadon ever said anything about turbo cancer, or plans by Pfizer to make trillions of dollars from turbo cancer caused by mRNA vaccines.

Recommended : Did COVID vaccines kill 14X more people than they saved?

Fact #6 : Vaccines Saved Lives + Prevented Depopulation

According to The People’s Voice article, Mike Yeadon claimed that the COVID-19 pandemic was a depopulation plot by the globalists. If that is the case, the COVID-19 vaccines have ruined that evil plot, because they have proven to be safe and effective at preventing hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

In fact, the world’s population has continued to increase throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, breaching the 8 billion point in November 2022. It is expected to exceed 8.1 billion people in July – a 0.91% increase from 2023.

In short – there is zero evidence of any depopulation efforts, with the world population increasing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

On the off-chance that you are worried that COVID-19 or the vaccines are causing a drop in population growth, that has been dropping since its peak in 1963.

Did Britain Secretly Euthanise Elderly To Boost COVID Deaths?!

Did the British government secretly euthanise elderly hospital patients to boost COVID-19 deaths?!

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

 

Claim : Britain Secretly Euthanised Elderly To Boost COVID Deaths!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims or suggests that a new study showed that the British government secretly euthanised elderly hospital patients to boost COVID-19 deaths!

New Study: British Gov’t Secretly Euthanized Elderly Hospital Patients To Boost ‘Covid Deaths’

Recommended : Midazolam Murders: Were deaths falsely blamed on COVID-19?!

 

Truth : Britain Did Not Euthanised Elderly To Boost COVID Deaths!

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

Fact #1 : Paper Was Preprint Article

Let me start by pointing out that the paper that are being quoted is an article called Excess Deaths in the United Kingdom: Midazolam and Euthanasia in the COVID-19 Pandemic by Wilson Sy – an investment analyst.

This article does not appear to have undergone peer review. It’s listed as a preprint on ResearchGate, and was accepted for publication in Medical & Clinical Research (which charges $3,916 for each paper) in less than a week:

Submitted : 20 Jan 2024
Accepted : 25 Jan 2024

While that does not mean its findings are necessarily wrong, such preprint papers should not be relied upon as “established information”. It very much needs to be investigated, analysed, and verified.

Even the peer-review process is merely the first step in the scientific review process, which would be followed by replication, verification, and criticism by other researchers.

Fact #2 : Paper Does Not Show Deaths Caused By Midazolam

You might expect that the paper would at least show evidence for tens of thousands of deaths that were caused by Midazolam. Unfortunately, it shows nothing of the sort.

Did it look at death certificates or medical records to determine that those deaths were caused by Midazolam, and not COVID-19? No, that would be far too much work…

All it appears to do is try and prove some kind of correlation between excess deaths and the number of Midazolam injections in the United Kingdom. And when it could not show a correlation, it adjusted the chart temporally by one month, and voilà! that looks like correlation!

The only problem is – Midazolam is a short-acting drug, with a half-life of just 1.5 to 2.5 hours. It cannot possibly kill someone one month after injection!

Not only does this paper not show that any of the deaths were actually caused by Midazolam, it does not even show any correlation between Midazolam usage and excess deaths in the UK!

Recommended : Did Pfizer Call mRNA Vaccines Deadliest Drug In History?!

Fact #3 : Midazolam Is Used To Sedate Patients

Midazolam is infamous for being used to execute people sentenced to death, as well as an end-of-life medication. However, it has far more common and less morbid uses.

Midazolam is a short-acting benzodiazepine that is frequently used to sedate patients before they undergo surgeries, as well as medical /dental procedures. It is also used to treat prolonged seizures, or sedate agitated patients.

It is not surprising that Midazolam usage should spike during the COVID-19 pandemic, as it  is one of the two most commonly-used drugs used to sedate patients in the ICU. It is also used to sedate patients before they are intubated and placed on mechanical ventilation.

Many of us may forget, but many ICUs were overwhelmed with patients who had to be intubated and placed on mechanical ventilation during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, many hospital wards (and even parking lots!) were converted into temporary ICUs to accommodate the surge of patients requiring mechanical ventilation.

In fact, if you think about it – it makes sense for excess deaths to spike days, weeks, or months, after a spike in Midazolam usage. It would suggest that people were dying after receiving Midazolam while critically ill in the ICU, or being intubated for mechanical ventilation.

Fact #4 : Many Deaths From COVID-19 Were Confirmed

Just over 73,000 people died from COVID-19 in the United Kingdom in 2020, with the vast majority – 94.6% confirmed as “deaths due to COVID-19”.

Deaths listed as “Confirmed COVID-19” were confirmed through tests, while deaths that were clinically determined to be caused by COVID-19 were listed as “Suspected COVID-19” if no test was available at that time, or the test result was not conclusive (source).

Regardless of whether you believe that Midazolam had any hand in these deaths, one thing is for sure – the vast majority of these deaths were confirmed to have been caused by COVID-19.

Recommended : Are Vaccinated People Developing Full Blown AIDS?!

Fact #5 : Many Critially-Ill COVID-19 Patients Died

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many critically-ill patients had to be intubated and placed on mechanical ventilation as they could no longer breathe on their own. Midazolam is used to sedate such critically-ill patients, so its use would go up with the number of critically-ill patients being treated in the ICU, or placed on mechanical ventilation.

Unfortunately, a large percentage of patients on ventilator died, with some hospitals reporting mortality rates of 50% to 97%. An early report on the mortality of patients on ventilator at three hospitals in Georgia showed that approximately 30% of patients dying after being ventilated, and another 8.5% remaining on ventilation.

Just because many of those patients died while in the ICU or on mechanical ventilation does not mean that those machines, or the oxygen they provided, caused their deaths. It certainly does not mean that the Midazolam they received for sedation killed them.

Fact #6 : Euthanasia Is Illegal In United Kingdom

Finally, I should point out that both euthanasia and assisted suicide are illegal throughout the United Kingdom, and can be prosecuted as murder or manslaughter.

Doctors in the UK can only assist their patients in hastening their deaths by withholding treatment and reducing pain, and even then, only when they feel that “death is only a few days away”.

Was Carrie Johnson Just Exposed As Occult Satanist?!

Was Boris Johnson’s wife, Carrie Johnson, just exposed as an Aleister Crowley worshipping occult Satanist?!

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

 

Claim : Carrie Johnson Was Just Exposed As Occult Satanist!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims or suggests that Boris Johnson’s wife, Carrie Johnson, was just exposed as an Aleister Crowley worshipping occult Satanist!

Former British PM Boris Johnson’s Wife Exposed as Aleister Crowley Worshiping Occult Satanist

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s wife Carrie Johnson has been exposed an occult Satanist who worships Aleister Crowley, the unabashed occultist and self-described “wickedest man in the world.”

The revelations comes days after Vladimir Putin revealed to Tucker Carlson that Johnson as prime minister scuppered a peace deal between Ukraine and Russia, leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths.

Photos of Johnson’s wife engaged in ritual Satanic acts have now emerged, with the former prime minister’s wife pictured next to a man with “Do as thou wilt” and “Big beast” scrawled on his body.

During Johnson’s time as prime minister, Bradshaw capitalized on her public persona by campaigning against single use straws.

Recommended : Did Pope Francis Order Christians To Pray To Satan?!

 

Truth : Carrie Johnson Was Not Just Exposed As Occult Satanist!

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

Fact #1 : The Daily Mail Posted Them in 2018

The People’s Voice article claimed or suggested that photos of Carrie Johnson engaging in ritual Satanic acts were revealed “days after” the Vladimir Putin – Tucker Carlson interview was released.

That’s simply not true, because The Daily Mail posted those photos on 12 September 2018 – more than 5 years earlier!

Fact #2 : Photos Were Posted On Carrie Johnson’s Social Media

The photos were not leaked or exposed, because it appears that Carrie Johnson posted them on her own social media account! As per The Daily Mail article:

She may have gone to ground since finding herself at the centre of a political storm, but there was a time when Carrie Symonds was rather less camera-shy, as these pictures show.

Taken from Miss Symonds’s social media posts, they show the 30-year-old former Tory aide, who has been linked to Boris Johnson, in a variety of glamorous poses on holiday, and even starring in a ‘satanic sex cult’ theatre production during her university days.

Fact #3 : It Was A University Play

The photos also do not show Carrie Johnson (born Caroline Louise Beaver Symonds on 17 March 1988) engaging in “ritual Satanic acts” as The People’s Voice article claimed.

The photos showed her acting in a play at Warwick University, where she was a drama student from 2006 to 2009. The theatre production was based on the writings of the self-styled mystic Aleister Crowley, who died in 1947.

Carrie Johnson was just acting in the play, and wasn’t actually engaging in Satanic acts… just like how Tom Cruise was only acting in the Mission Impossible movies, and isn’t actually an agent of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF).

Fact #4 : Aleister Crowley Wasn’t A Satanist

Despite being described as a Satanist, Aleister Crowley stated that he did not consider himself one, and he did not worship Satan, because he doesn’t even believe the Christian worldview that Satan exists!

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

The People’s Voice referred to an article by Voice of Liberated Children, but even that article does not offer any actual evidence of King Charles raping any children, much less “hundreds of children” with his close friends.

In short – there simply is no evidence, or testimony, by any victim or witness to the raping of any child or children by King Charles and his close friends.

Fact #2 : One Aldenham Teacher Was Convicted Of Rape

There has been no evidence of child abuse at the Aldenham School, as far as I can tell. There was only one known case of rape involving an Aldenham school teacher called Alun Pickford.

Alun Pickford was convicted on 21 July 2023 of raping an 18 year-old girl in the early 1990s, while he was a junior teacher at the Aldenham School. While the girl was a student at that time, she does not appear to be studying at Aldenham.

According to the Hertfordshire Constabulary, Alun Pickford invited the teenage girl to stay overnight at his one-bedroom flat on the Aldenham school estate, offering to sleep on the sofa while she slept in his bed. However, he entered the bedroom that night and got into bed with her.

The teenage girl confided in a friend about the incident, but did not take the matter further until she reported the rape to police in 2020.

There is no evidence of other rapes at the Aldenham School, or that other teachers were involved. There is also no evidence of any child sex ring at Aldenham School, with hundreds of children getting raped.

Fact #3 : King Charles Was Not Involved With Aldenham

King Charles never went to the Aldenham School, and was never involved in the governance of the school.

In fact, he appears to have only met once with student ambassadors (Head Boy Subhan Iqbal and Head Girl Sarah Dean) from the Aldenham School in March 2016.

Therefore, it is odd that anyone should accuse him of raping children studying at Aldenham when he has zero involvement with that boarding school.

Fact #4 : Prince Andrew Screenshot Is Fake

The People’s Voice article and video used a cover photo which appears to feature a screenshot of a social media post by Prince Andrew. That is most certainly fake, because Prince Andrew no longer has any social media accounts.

He never had any official Facebook page, and deleted his official Twitter and YouTube accounts, and took his Instagram account private in January 2022, after Queen Elizabeth II stripped him of his military titles.

Needless to say, The People’s Voice provided no evidence Prince Andrew called King Charles’ recent cancer diagnosis “fake”, and said that ‘kids were killed”.

And it is odd that the screenshot was censored with only two statements visible. Why censor it if it’s genuine?

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

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

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

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

Did HK Activist Fion Ho Commit Suicide After Fleeing To UK?!

Did Hong Kong independence activist Fion Ho Yik King commit suicide after fleeing to the United Kingdom?!

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

 

Claim : HK Activist Fion Ho Committed Suicide After Fleeing To UK!

CCP supporters, as well as the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), are sharing this message on WhatsApp, as a warning to Hong Kong residents who are planning to migrate to the United Kingdom.

The viral message claims that Hong Kong independence activist Fion Ho Yik King committed suicide after foolishly fleeing to the United Kingdom. It’s a very long message, so you should skip to the next section for the facts!

MISS FION HO YIK KING

You are not alone if you did not know Miss Ho Yik King because I didn’t know her either and neither did any of my friends. However her suicide in the United Kingdom on November 2022 suddenly pushed her to the headline and many were compelled to read about her and to determine what it was that drove her to end her life in the manner it did.

Recommended : Joe Biden Caught Receiving Laundered Chinese Money?!

 

Truth : Fion Ho Was Not HK Independence Activist!

This appears to be yet another example of PROPAGANDA created or promoted by CCP supporters and/or the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Her Name Was Fion Ho Yee-King

First, let me just point out that a Chinese lady did indeed commit suicide in the UK, after migrating from Hong Kong. However, her name was not Ho Yik King or Ho Yit King or Ho Yi King.

She was known as Fion Ho in the UK, and her name in Hong Kong was Ho Yee-King.

This is important, because if you search for “Ho Yik King” or “Ho Yit King” or “Ho Yi King”, you will get links to the same propaganda story on multiple Chinese websites and social media. But if you search for “Ho Yee King” or “Fion Ho”, you will get links to her true story.

Fact #2 : Fion Ho Was Not A Hong Kong Independence Activist

Fion Ho Yee King was a 27 year-old Hong Kong native who migrated to the United Kingdom in April 2022, but sadly committed suicide in November 2022.

However, she was not a Hong Kong independence activist. You won’t find her in any list of activists associated with the Hong Kong protests or independence movement.

In fact, Fion Ho was working in Jordan as an Assessment Officer from September 2019 to October 2020 – during the time of the Hong Kong protests.

Fact #3 : Fion Ho Did Not Flee Hong Kong

Fion Ho certainly did not flee Hong Kong to escape its National Security law. After all, she was in Jordan when the controversial National Security Law was passed on 30 June 2020.

If she wanted to avoid the National Security Law, she would have just remained in Jordan, or migrated to the UK. Instead, she returned to Hong Long in December 2020 – after the National Security Law was in effect!

Fact #4 : Fion Ho Had A Job In The UK

As far as I can tell – Fion Ho Yee King did not have trouble getting a job in the UK. In fact, she appears to have migrated to the United Kingdom for a job.

She was working as an International and Relief Service Officer for the Hong Kong Red Cross from December 2020 to March 2022, before migrating to the UK the next month to work for a charity promoting education for women and girls internationally.

Fact #5 : Fion Ho Had Financial Trouble

According to her brother, Tommy Ho Yiu Hang, Fion suffered from stress and mental health issues due to the cost of living crisis in the UK.

Fion Ho had been paying £900 a month to rent a room in a South West London flat, which she described as “unhygienic”. She was worried about her income, and ability to make ends meet.

She mentioned to me on September 7, 2022 that since July, she was worried about her income and was not able to sustain her life in the UK and felt depressed.

The hygiene condition of the bathroom made her feel uncomfortable…This made her pressure build up and fall to a loss of strength to work from home and live at home. And she seldom left her room.

She was scared she will be laid off from work due to stress and face a loss of income due to her poor working performance.

After her death, Tommy found her diary, in which she detailed the days when she would eat only lunch or dinner to save money.

Due to insufficient income, I think she had begun to limit her meals per day.

Fact #6 : Fion Ho Was Not Found Days Later

Fion Ho Yee King was not found several days after her suicide. When she failed to turn up for work and did not answer her phone, her brother Tommy asked one of the other three tenants of her flat to check on her.

That was when Fion was discovered to have taken her own life. She was pronounced dead on 3 November 2022, and Coroner Dr. Anton van Dellen listed her death as a suicide on 24 January 2023.

Fact #7 : UK ID Not Required To Open Bank Account

There is no evidence that Fion Ho Yee King faced any issue opening a bank account. UK banks do not require a UK ID to open an account. Common forms of identification that they accept include:

  • Passport
  • UK birth certificate (for applicants under 18 years old)
  • EU / EEA National Identity Card
  • UK photo card driving licence
  • UK Residence Permit

Fact #8 : BNO Passport Was Established In 1987

The British National (Overseas) passport is not available only to Hong Kong independence activists. In fact, the BNO passport was created in 1987 – after the enactment of the Hong Kong Act 1985, conferring British Overseas Territory citizen status for Hong Kong permanent residents (and their children) who register for the status by 30 June 1997.

The BNO visa does not confer you British citizenship. However, since 31 January 2021, BNO visa recipients can stay for up to 5 years, and extend that as many times as they wish. They can also apply to live in the UK permanently after living there for at least 5 years.

Fact #1 : Her Name Was Fion Ho Yee-King

That was when Fion was discovered to have taken her own life. She was pronounced dead on 3 November 2022, and Coroner Dr. Anton van Dellen listed her death as a suicide on 24 January 2023.

Recommended : Are Chinese Students Being Harassed + Banned From US?

Fact #7 : NHS Offers Free Counselling For Depression

The video claimed or suggested that Ho Yit King / Ho Yee King was started seeing a psychologist, but stopped because she could not afford the exorbitant fees.

The truth is – there is no evidence Fion Ho ever saw a psychologist, psychiatrist, or counsellor. She was booked for a psychological counselling session for depression, but she never made it to the session – she committed suicide four days before the appointment.

A private counselling session with a private psychologist / psychiatrist would be expensive, but the NHS offers free counselling for depression.

There is no evidence that Fion Ho Yee King faced any issue opening a bank account.

Why Sinead O’Connor Did Not Die From Vaccine / Suicide / OD!

Did Irish singer Sinead O’Connor die suddenly from vaccine SADS, suicide, or a drug overdose?!

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

Updated @ 2024-01-09 : Added Sinead O’Connor’s cause of death.
Updated @ 2023-08-12 : Added new details about Sinead O’Connor’s autopsy and mental health.
Updated @ 2023-08-08 : Added new details about her funeral, and other details.
Updated @ 2023-07-31 : Added new details about her death, and upcoming autopsy.

Originally posted @ 2023-07-27

 

Claim : Sinead O’Connor Died Suddenly From Vaccine / Suicide!

Right after news broke that Sinead O’Connor died unexpectedly at just 56 years old, some people immediately claimed that the Grammy-winning Irish singer died suddenly from COVID-19 vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), while others suggested that she committed suicide.

Carl E. Miller : Another fully vaccinated celebrity SINEAD O’CONNOR does [dies] at 56 years old. Of course the vaccine may not be the cause, but it may be the cause too. At least worth noting that she took several doses of an experimental vaccine. Seems reasonable to point that out.

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

 

Truth : Sinead O’Connor Did Not Die From Vaccine Or Suicide!

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

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

Fact #1 : Sinead O’Connor Was Found Dead In London

Born Sinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor on December 8, 1966, Sinead O’Connor was an Irish singer and musician who released ten studio albums, and won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Performance after receiving several nominations.

On Wednesday, 26 July 2023, her family announced that Sinead O’Connor died at the age of 56, in a statement to The Irish Times:

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad.

Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.

Later, it was revealed that Sinead O’Connor was found dead in her flat in South London. She only recently returned to London after a long absence.

Sinead O’Connor (Shuhada’ Sadaqat) was laid to rest in Bray, in County Wicklow, Ireland, on Tuesday, 8 August 2023. A private funeral service followed a public procession past her family home, which was attended by Irish President Michael D. Higgins and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, as well as Bob Geldof and Bono.

Fact #2 : Her Cause Of Death Was Natural

Sinead O’Connor’s family did not announce her cause of death, because an autopsy had been ordered to look into her death.

The coroner later revealed that it did not know when Sinead O’Connor actually died, and an autopsy had been ordered to determine her cause of death. However, the Metropolitan Police said at that time that it was not treating her death as suspicious.

On 3 August 2023, Sinead O’Connor’s remains were released to her family, after the autopsy was completed. However, the autopsy report would not be completed “for some weeks”, according to a statement issued by John Thompson, the clerk of the London Inner South district for Southwark Coroners Court. It also said that the conclusion will be publicly disclosed if an inquest is opened into her death.

It was many weeks later – on Tuesday, 9 January 2024, when the Southwark Coroner’s Court in London issued a brief statement, ruling Sinead O’Connor’s cause of death as “natural”:

This is to confirm that Ms O’Connor died of natural causes. The coroner has therefore ceased their involvement in her death.

The coroner did not mention her official cause of death, but a ruling that she died of natural causes ruled out dying from unnatural causes like a suicide, or a vaccine side effect.

Fact #3 : Sinead O’Connor Had Mental Health Problems

Sinead O’Connor had been open about her mental health struggles for many years now, even sharing them publicly on social media.

On 4 October 2007, she revealed on The Oprah Winfrey Show that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder four years earlier.

In 2012, she cancelled a tour after suffering from a “very serious breakdown”. Her mental health also suffered after she underwent a radical hysterectomy in 2015.

In 2021, she told The Guardian that she was also diagnosed with complex post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and borderline personality disorder, and had been in and out of the hospital for mental health treatment. She even called the St. Patrick’s psychiatric hospital in Dublin her second home:

Thank God I spent a lot of the last six years there, because otherwise I wouldn’t be alive.

I’m 10% bipolar, apparently, 40% complex traumatic stress and the rest is borderline personality disorder.

In January 2022, she was devastated by news that her 17 year-old son, Shane, committed suicide after escaping from a hospital in Bray while on suicide watch.

Bob Geldof later said that Sinead O’Connor had sent him text messages in the weeks before her death, which were “laden with desperation, despair and sorrow“, while others were “ecstatically happy“, suggesting that she was suffering from bipolar mood swings.

There’s no other option, as all of you know, than to just keep on. Many, many times Sinead was full of a terrible loneliness and a terrible despair.

She was a very good friend of mine. We were talking right up to a couple of weeks ago. Some of her texts were laden with desperation and despair and sorrow and some were ecstatically happy. She was like that.

However, we now know that Sinead O’Connor did not commit suicide.

Fact #4 : Sinead O’Connor Attempted Suicide Several Times

Sinead O’Connor battled thoughts of suicide for many years, and even attempted suicide several times. This September 2011 tweet even resulted in a visit by the police:

I want to go to heaven SO bad. Have for [years] … Can’t manage any more. Badly wish [could] die without it ruining kids’ lives.

She would later tell The Guardian that she attempted suicide several times in the past:

In the past I have made several suicide attempts. I would take the pills and say to God: ‘OK it’s up to you, you decide’ and then of course I would wake up three or four days later.

She also became suicidal after her hysterectomy in 2015, telling The Guardian:

Nobody had explained to me or my family that she’s going to be a crazy bitch because we took her ovaries for no reason. So the children were terrified of me. Angry. Raging. I was furious. I was completely gone. I was suicidal.

A week after her son’s death in January 2022, Sinead was briefly admitted to the hospital after posting several tweets that she had “decided to follow” his path.

Just weeks before her death, Sinead O’Connor tweeted about the pain of losing her son, saying that she was “living as undead night creature” since he died:

😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭#lostmy17yrOldSonToSuicidein2022.
Been living as undead night creature since. . He was the love of my life, the lamp of my soul. We were one soul in two halves. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally. I am lost in the bardo without him.

Of course, now that the coroner has ruled Sinead O’Connor died of natural causes, we know for sure she did not commit suicide as some have speculated.

Fact #5 : Sinead O’Connor Had History Of Drug Use

Sinead O’Connor had a long history of drug use. She smoked cannabis for some 34 years, and only went to a rehabilitation centre in 2016 to treat her addiction.

In 2021, Sinead O’Connor recounted how she and her fourth husband, Barry Herridge, ended up scoring some crack cocaine on their wedding night in Las Vegas.

In November 2020, she entered a drug rehabilitation facility for a year to seek treatment for “trauma and addiction” to a different drug:

I had a very traumatic six years and this year was the end of it but now recovery starts.

This year I lost someone beloved and has affected me so badly that I became briefly addicted to a drug other than weed.

While it is plausible given her history of drug use, this does not mean that Sinead O’Connor died suddenly from a drug overdose.

Of course, now that the coroner has ruled Sinead O’Connor died of natural causes, we know for sure she did not die from a drug overdose, as some have speculated.

Fact #6 : Sinead O’Connor Was Fully-Vaccinated Against COVID-19

In May 2021, Sinead O’Connor tweeted a (now deleted) photo with her son, Shane, and shared that they both received their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine:

2nd vaccine today, my lovely 17 yr old son coming with me 🙂 Behold Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor.

However, that does not mean she died from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect. After all, she received that dose more than two years earlier! The coroner also determined that Sinead O’Connor died of natural causes.

Recommended : Was Madonna Revived From Death By Narcan Injection?!

Fact #7 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Sinead O’Connor cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not years 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 VITTdevelop within days or weeks.

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 #8 : This Is Just Celebrity Fake News

Ultimately, this is just another example of fake news created about celebrities, like these other recent examples:

Will these fake news creators apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity fake news…

Barry Gibb is more than just an international celebrity, he is a living legend. Even if he only tripped in public and grazed his shin, it would have been breathlessly reported on by the celebrity blogs, if not the mainstream media.

No legitimate media outlet reported that Barry Gibb was sick or hospitalised, never mind mysteriously dying suddenly. That’s because it never happened!

Fact #2 : Barry Gibb Is Still Alive + Well!

Sir Barry Alan Crompton Gibb (born 1 September 1946) is very much alive, as of Friday, 29 December 2023. But of course, you want “proof of life”, don’t you?

Well, on 22 December 2023, CBS Mornings posted a video clip of Barry Gibb telling their reporter, Anthony Mason, about his legacy, and how fame impacted his relationship with his brothers.

As you can see, Barry Gibb is not only alive, he looks to be very healthy and in good shape!

Barry Gibb earlier posted a photo of himself at his 2017 concert on June 24, 2023, after thanking the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for selecting to honour him for lifetime artistic achievements this coming Sunday, December 3, 2023.

I am beyond honored to share I am going to be recognized as part of the 46th class of Honorees at the Kennedy Center. #KCHonors

Meet all the Honorees being celebrated in December, and stay tuned for the broadcast on @CBS ➡ tkc.co/Honors The Kennedy Center CBS

Fact #3 : The Photos Were Edited

I analysed the photos used in these videos, and traced the origin of three examples used in many of these videos.

This photo that purportedly shows Barry Gibb’s funeral procession, was edited from a real photo of the funeral procession for Jade Goody – an English television personality who died of cancer on 22 March 2009.

The photo was taken by Chris Rayburn for the Associated Press on Saturday, 4 April 2009, as her funeral procession passed through Loughton, on the way to St. John the Baptist Church in Buckhurst Hill, England.

If you look carefully at the original photo on the right, you can see pink balloons spelling out “Jade From Bermondsey“. Jade Goody was born on 5 June 1981 in Bermondsey, London.

The fake news creator cropped that out, and added a super-large photo of Barry Gibb to the top of the hearse, to trick you.

The photo which is being used to show Barry Gibb’s funeral is actually a screenshot from the Women and Death episode from the TV drama, Desperate Housewives, which aired on Sunday, March 18, 2012.

The “photo” shows Susan Mayer (played by Teri Hatcher) crying over the coffin of Mike Delfino (played by James Denton).

It certainly does NOT show Teri Hatcher crying over Barry Gibb’s funeral, that’s for sure!

This photo does not show the Barry Gibb’s coffin being carried during his funeral. It was actually edited from a photo of the John Gotti funeral, taken outside the Papavero Funeral Home by Chet Gordon of TopFoto.

Mob boss John Gotti was laid to rest on June 15, 2002, after dying of cancer in a federal prison hospital in Missouri. Obviously, that was not Barry Gibbs’s funeral because he was very much still alive in 2002!

The fake news creator just added a large photo of Barry Gibb to trick you into thinking that it was his funeral.

Fact #4 : Barry Gibb Death Hoax Is Driven By Fake Fact Check Too

This Barry Gibb death hoax is, ironically, also being driven by a fake fact check article by the MediaMass Project, which keeps “updating” the dates in their fake fact check article:

News of singer Barry Gibb’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the December 2023 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, Bee Gees singer is alive and well.

Their claim of a viral R.I.P. Barry Gibb Facebook page is false. There is no such Facebook page. It is their standard fake fact check spiel for fake celebrity deaths.

The statement from Barry Gibb’s unnamed rep confirming that he is not dead is exactly the same as statements from other reps of celebrities MediaMass claimed were victims of death hoaxes, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Celine Dion, Cristiano Ronaldo, Clint Eastwood, Dolly Parton, Harrison Ford, Justin Bieber, Lionel Messi, Lucy LiuMadonna, Melanie Laurent, Mike Tyson, Morgan Freeman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Pattinson, Simon Cowell, Sylvester Stallone, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, and Tom Hanks.

He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet.

Hidden in the description page for the MediaMass Project is a disclaimer that they are a “satire” website. That’s the usual “cover” for websites peddling fake news.

Regardless of their reasons, anything posted by MediaMass.net must be considered as fake news, until proven otherwise.

Biden said America lost Revolutionary War over lack of airports?!

Did President Joe Biden say that America “lost” the Revolutionary War, because it “didn’t have enough airports”?!

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

 

Claim : Biden Said America Lost Revolutionary War Over Lack Of Airports!

On 21 December 2023, Joe Rogan claimed on his show that President Joe Biden said that America “lost” the Revolutionary War because “we didn’t have enough airports”!

During that episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, he argued that recent statements by Joe Biden disqualified him from running for re-election in the 2024 Presidential elections. He claimed that Biden voters were regretting their choice in 2020 to elect Biden, saying “What did I do? What did I choose?“.

His guest, mixed martial arts fighter Bo Nickal then chimed in, “You just can’t listen to an interview [with Biden] where he’s saying some of the things he’s saying, it makes no sense at all.

That was when Joe Rogan claimed that Joe Biden recently said that America “lost” the Revolutionary War because “we didn’t have enough airports”.

Joe Rogan mimicking Joe Biden : One of the reasons why we lost the Revolutionary War… one of the problems in the Revolutionary War was they didn’t have enough airports.

Bo Nickal appeared to agree with him, laughing and saying, “Yeah, what the hell? It’s crazy.

Joe Rogan then continued, “If you had any other job, and you were talking like that, they would go, ‘Hey, you’re done.’

Joe Biden Did Not Say America Lost Revolutionary War Over Lack Of Airports!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created or promoted by American conservatives of the MAGA persuasion, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : America Did Won The Revolutionary War

First, let me just point out America did not lose the Revolutionary War against the British. If that happened, there wouldn’t be any United States of America today. It would still be part of the United Kingdom.

The Revolutionary War is also called the American War of Independence for a very good reason – the Americans won their independence from the British.

Interestingly, the clip that was shared on The Joe Rogan Experience did not show Joe Biden saying that America lost the Revolutionary War. Why would Joe Rogan claim that Biden said that America lost its War of Independence against the British. Perhaps he will “clarify” that in a future episode?

Fact #2 : Joe Biden Was Mocking Donald Trump

The video clip that was featured in The Joe Rogan Experience does not show Joe Biden saying that America “lost” the Revolutionary War, or that the American colonies “did not have enough airports”.

The truth is – the video clip shows President Joe Biden mocking former President Donald Trump, who was the one who actually made those claims about airports during the American Revolutionary War!

Fact #3 : Donald Trump Made Airports In Revolutionary War Comments

On 5 July 2019, Donald Trump was giving a speech commemorating the War of Independence, when he claimed that the American Continental Army flew planes and seized airports (from the British) – more than 120 years before airplanes were invented and airports existed!

Donald Trump : The Continental Army suffered a bitter winter of Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown.

Our army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts. It took over the airports.

For the record – the Wright brothers made their historic first flight only on December 17, 1903… and the oldest airport in the United States – College Park Airport was established in 1907 to train military pilots. Both events took place more than 120 years after the American Revolutionary War ended on September 3, 1783.

Fact #4 : Joe Biden Statement Was Old + Edited

I should also point out that the viral video clip was edited to make it look like he was saying that the biggest problem America faced in the Revolutionary War was a lack of airports.

The video is also not recent, as Joe Rogan and other people have claimed. Instead, it was taken from his speech mocking Donald Trump during a 2020 campaign rally in Tampa, Florida.

Donald Trump when he thinks of climate change, he says hoax. Well, guess what? Speaking of hoaxes, remember what he said about these increasing violent hurricanes and the frequency? He actually said, maybe we should detonate a nuclear bomb over the Atlantic.

By the way, the same stable genius who said the biggest problem we had in the Revolutionary War is we didn’t have enough airports.

Fact #5 : Joe Rogan Was Corrected On-Air!

Embarrassingly, Joe Rogan got corrected on-air by his own producer, Jamie Vernon, who belatedly stepped in with a fact check after airing the viral edited Joe Biden video clip.

Jamie Vernon : Just for the record…

Joe Rogan : Is that fake?

Jamie Vernon : It’s not fake, but he was referencing Trump saying that. Here is what Trump was saying that in 2019.

Joe Rogan : Ohhh….

Jamie Vernon then played a video clip of Donald Trump claiming that American Continental Army “manned the air” and “took over the airports“.

But instead of admitting he and his guest fucked up on-air, Joe Rogan only laughed and said, “Oh, so he [Donald Trump] fucked up….

Nickal then somehow suggested that it was the fault of the media, saying “That’s the thing about media these days. You gotta look into it.

Did Tom Lockyer Collapse From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Did Tom Lockyer collapse during a Premiere League match from cardiac arrest caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Tom Lockyer Collapsed From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

Right after news broke that Tom Lockyer collapsed suddenly during a Premiere League match, some people immediately suggested that the Welsh professional footballer suffered a cardiac arrest caused by the COVID-19 vaccine!

Neil McEvoy : Dreadful. Investigation of collapses and the covid jab must begin.

Truth : Tom Lockyer Did Not Collapse From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

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

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccine activists…

Fact #1 : Tom Lockyer Suffered A Cardiac Arrest

Tom Lockyer (born Thomas Alun Lockyer on 3 December 1994) is a Welsh professional footballer who plays for Luton Town – a Premiere League soccer club.

On 16 December 2023, Luton Town was playing against Bournemouth, when Tom Lockyer suddenly collapsed on the pitch during the second half, after suffering a cardiac arrest.

He was responsive, but was stretchered off the field, and taken to a hospital. Luton Town later announced that Lockyer was “stable and currently undergoing further tests“.

Fact #2 : Tom Lockyer Was Discharged With An ICD

On Thursday, 21 December 2023, Luton Town announced that Tom Lockyer was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday, after getting an ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) fitted.

We are thankful to report that our captain Tom Lockyer has now begun a period of rehabilitation from the comfort of his own home after he was discharged from hospital on Wednesday.

This encouraging news follows a successful procedure that took place on Tuesday whereby Tom had an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator) device fitted to prevent a repeat of Saturday’s incident.

The clinical advice Tom and the Club has taken since the Championship play-off final has been conducted by the most renowned cardiologists, who have been involved at every step, along with a team of supporting multi-disciplinary consultants.

Fact #3 : Tom Lockyer Collapsed In May For Different Reason

This isn’t the first time Tom Lockyer collapsed while playing on the pitch. On 27 May 2023, he collapsed just 12 minutes into a game against Coventry City.

He was treated by the medical team, and was conscious when he was taken off the field, and taken to a hospital for further tests. Eventually, he was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, and underwent ablative surgery.

His most recent collapse in December 2023 though has nothing to do with his prior heart condition. This was confirmed by his club, Luton Town:

We can now confirm that the tests taken this week had revealed that the issue Tom experienced on Saturday was different to the atrial fibrillation he suffered in May.

Needless to say – no COVID-19 vaccine is known to cause atrial fibrillation, or any other cardiac electrical conditions.

Fact #4 : Athletes Are At Higher Risk Of Cardiac Arrest

While student athletes appears to be the epitome of healthy young people, many are at risk of dying from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

In fact, studies show that sudden cardiac arrest is the leading medical cause of death in young athletes. On average, about 2,000 young people in the United States (less than 24 years old) die from sudden cardiac arrest every year, and many do not have previously-known heart disease.

That’s why many states in the United States enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

Fact #5 : Unknown If Tom Lockyer Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite suggestions that Tom Lockyer was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Tom Lockyer was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless he (or his family) reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Tom Lockyer was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Tom Lockyer was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses more than two years ago!

He cannot possibly have suffered 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 or weeks.

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.
