Did JAG Just Hang Four Colorado Supreme Court Justices?!

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

 

Claim : JAG Hangs Four Colorado Supreme Court Justices!

Real Raw News posted an article (archive) which claimed that US Marines just arrested Oregon AG Ellen Rosenbaum for treason!

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

Truth : JAG Did Not Hang Four Colorado Supreme Court Justices!

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

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

This is really silly, but it has to be said – the US Navy Judge Advocate General (JAG) did not hang any Colorado Supreme Court justice for any reason, never mind voting to remove Donald Trump from the state ballots in the 2024 US Presidential elections.

In fact, neither the US Marines nor JAG have arrested any Colorado Supreme Court, and they have certainly not executed any of them by hanging!

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

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

To be clear – no Colorado Supreme Court Justice was arrested or executed for any reason, by the JAG, the US Marines, or any law enforcement officials.

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

Regardless of the reasons, it is really silly for anyone to claim that JAG executed four Colorado Supreme Court justices by hanging.

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

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

Even if JAG officers are used to prosecute civilians like the Colorado Supreme Court Justices, they are not the judge, jury, and executioner.

Fact #3 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

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

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

Did WEF Founder Klaus Schwab Just Die In Hospital?!

Did WEF founder Klaus Schwab just die in the hospital, after he was pulled off life support?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Founder Klaus Schwab Just Died In Hospital!

On 26 April 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) which claimed that WEF founder Klaus Schwab just died in the hospital, after he was pulled off life support!

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

JAG Pulls Plug on Klaus Schwab

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

 

Truth : WEF Founder Klaus Schwab Did Not Die In Hospital!

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

Fact #1 : Klaus Schwab Is Still Alive + Well!

No matter what you think of him, Klaus Schwab is a person of note, as the founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF).

If Klaus Schwab ever died from any reason, it would have been reported all over the world. However, there has been no legitimate media report of Klaus Schwab dying or being hospitalised for any reason.

On top of that, WEF spokesperson Yann Zopf confirmed to both Snopes and Lead Stories that the rumours were “entirely baseless”, and Schwab was in “excellent” health:

These claims are entirely baseless and unfounded. Professor Schwab’s health is excellent. Like many high-profile individuals and organizations, he and the World Economic Forum have been targeted by conspiracy narratives, as well as misinformation and disinformation campaigns.

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

Fact #2 : Donald Trump Is No Longer President

It is really silly for anyone to claim that President Trump ordered Klaus Schwab to be taken off life support.

Not only does the President of the United States not have the right to order people to be taken off life support, Donald Trump is no longer the President of the United States!

Fact #3 : US Military Has Not Executed Anyone Since 1961

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

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

Are Soldiers Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure?!

Are US soldiers protecting Trump properties from being seized?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Soldiers Are Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure!

On 22 March 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) which claimed that Navy SEALS, Delta Force, Army Rangers, and US Marines are now protecting Trump properties in New York, Florida, New Jersey, Nevada, and California!

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

White Hats Fortify Trump Properties

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

 

Claim : Soldiers Are Not Protecting Trump Properties From Seizure!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Claim : US Navy JAG Executes Oprah Winfrey

On 23 February 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that Oprah Winfrey was just sentenced to death, for being an accessory to mass murder in the Maui inferno!

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

JAG Executes Oprah Winfrey

Truth : US Navy JAG Did Not Execute Oprah Winfrey

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

Fact #1 : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested / Sentenced To Death

Let me just start by pointing out that Oprah Winfrey has not been executed, arrested, or sentenced to death, for being an accessory to mass murder in the Maui inferno, or any other reason.

Oprah Winfrey is a mega celebrity, and one of the richest women in the world, with a net worth of $3.5 billion as of May 2023. If she was ever arrested, it would have been international news.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, not even celebrity blogs, have reported that Oprah Winfrey was in any legal trouble, never mind arrested, sentenced to death, and then executed by hanging!

We know this for sure because Oprah herself posted about her speaking with Tyler Perry on resilience and forgiveness in her latest “The Life You Want” class on 23 February 2024.

You may note that this occurred four days after the US Navy JAG (Judge Advocate General) supposedly executed Oprah Winfrey by hanging, on 19 February 2024.

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that the US Navy JAG executed Oprah Winfrey for being an accessory to mass murder in the 2023 Maui fire is absurd.

Fact #4 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

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

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

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

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

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

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

Could she have made it for the photoshoot, if she was supposedly arrested and jailed in Guantanamo Bay, before being courtmartialed, and sentenced to death???

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that the US Navy JAG convicted Oprah Winfrey for being an accessory to mass murder in the 2023 Maui fire, and sentenced her to death, is absurd.

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

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

Fact #3 : JAG Cannot Confiscate Civilian Property

The claim that JAG can confiscate Oprah Winfrey’s assets is also laughable. As the military justice branch of the American military, JAG cannot confiscate civilian property.

Even if somehow permitted to do so under the Justice Department’s asset forfeiture program (2023 guidelines), it would require the minimum oversight of:

  • the Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) or investigative agent in charge of the administrative
    forfeiture matter (and, if applicable, the AUSA in charge of the related criminal matter);
  • investigative agents; and
  • appropriate USMS representatives.

In short, even in the MAGA / QAnon fantasy world where Oprah Winfrey’s assets were somehow confiscated, it would be under the oversight of the US Justice Department.

Fact #4 : Seized Assets Cannot Be Given To Trump

Even in the MAGA / Canon fantasy world where Oprah Winfrey was somehow sentenced to death, and had her assets seized, there is no reason why those assets should ever be given to Donald Trump!

The seized assets would belong to the US government, and can be used as it sees fit. And there is simply no reason why it should divert some of those seized asset to a private citizen, even if he is called Donald J. Trump.

The truth is there is no way Oprah Winfrey’s money is ever going to be used to pay Donald Trump’s massive fine for fraudulently overvaluing his properties!

Fact #5 : Donald Trump’s Assets May Be Seized!

Ironically, Donald Trump may have his own assets seized to pay for the massive $355 million fine, with another $100 million in pre-judgement interest!

On 21 February 2024, New York Attorney General Letitia James said that she is prepared to seize assets from Donald Trump if he is unable to find the cash to cover his civil fraud fine.

We are prepared to make sure that the judgment is paid to New Yorkers, and yes, I look at 40 Wall Street each and every day.

Did JAG Just Hang WHO Assistant DG Ihekweazu?!

Did US Navy JAG just hang WHO Assistant Director General Ihekweazu for promoting COVID-19 vaccines?!

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

 

Claim : JAG Hanged WHO Assistant DG Ihekweazu!

On 10 February 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that US Navy JAG just hanged WHO Assistant Director General Ihekweazu for promoting COVID-19 vaccine mandates!

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

JAG Hangs WHO Despot

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

 

Truth : JAG Did Not Hang WHO Assistant DG Ihekweazu!

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

Fact #1 : His Name Is Chikwe, Not Chickwe

The Real Raw News story wrongly identifies the WHO official in its story as Dr. Chickwe

If it cannot even get his name right…

Fact #2 : Promoting Vaccines Is Not A Crime

Real Raw News claimed that Dr. was hanged for apparently pushing vaccine mandates, and/or promoting COVID-19 vaccines. That’s just daft.

After all – neither promoting vaccine mandates, or COVID-19 vaccination, are crimes in the US military, or even in the United States.

Even if promoting vaccines and vaccine mandates are crimes in a hypothetical dystopian United States, they would not necessarily be capital crimes resulting in the death penalty.

Fact #3 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

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

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

Fact #4 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

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

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

Fact #5 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

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

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

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

Fact #6 : US Military Has Not Executed Anyone Since 1961

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

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

Fact #7 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Company Release – 11/13/2023

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

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

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

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

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

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

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

Did US Navy SEALs just kill two intruders at Donald Trump’s residence of Mar-a-Lago?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Navy SEALs Just Killed Mar-a-Lago Intruders!

On 29 January 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that US Navy SEALs just arrested and killed two intruders at Donald Trump’s residence of Mar-a-Lago!

Truth : Navy SEALs Did Not Kill Any Mar-a-Lago Intruder!

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

Fact #1 : There Were No Intruders At Mar-a-Lago

This is really silly, but it has to be said – no intruders attempted to breach security at Mar-a-Lago in January 2024.

If any intruder was ever caught trespassing at Mar-a-Lago, it would have been covered by news media all over the world, not just by a known fake news website.

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

Fact #2 : Mar-a-Lago Is Not Protected By US Military

Real Raw News claimed that Mar-a-Lago was protected by US Navy SEALs. That’s utter nonsense. SEALs are the US Navy’s primary special operations force, and are never assigned to protect civilians, or property.

US President Joe Biden, as well as all former US presidents, are never protected by the military. Instead, they are all protected by the US Secret Service.

Fact #2 : Dr. Alfred Johnson Was Not Arrested / Hanged

This is really silly, but it has to be said – Dr. Alfred Johnson, the current NIH Deputy Director for Management, was never arrested, and he was certainly not hanged by US Marines.

If he was really arrested, it would have been reported by the mainstream media in the United States, if not globally, as he is a Deputy Director of a major US government organisation.

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

Fact #3 : Camp Blaz Is Not Used As Prison

It is funny that Real Raw News should claim that any civilian is being held at Camp Blaz. Marine Corps Base Camp Blaz is a new facility on the island of Guam, that was activated on 1 October 2020, and only officially opened on 25 January 2023.

Camp Blaz does not function as a prison of any kind. It is used to house Marines that were relocated from USMC facilities in Okinawa, Japan.

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

Fact #4 : US Marines Cannot Arrest / Hang Civilians

It is also silly for anyone to claim that US Marines were sent to escort a civilian prisoner out of Camp Blaz. US Marines do not have jurisdiction or the power to detain any civilian.

In fact, US Marines are not even empowered to arrest or detain other military personnel! In the US Marine Corps, any arrest would have been made by US Navy Master-at-Arms and/or the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS), not the marines themselves.

US Marines certainly have no right or power to hang any civilian. In fact, such an act would be considered murder under Article 118 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ)

If any US Marine committed such a crime, he/she would be court-martialled under Article 118 of the UCMJ, and face a death sentence or imprisonment for life. The punishment of “a formal reprimand and 60 days of latrine duty” in the Real Raw News article is, in fact, too lenient even for the writer of such bullshit.

As usual, the articles were long, rambling and confusing, so here are some excerpts. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Truth : Stephen Colbert Was Not Arrested At All!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : Stephen Colbert Is Recovering From Surgery

It is impossible for Stephen Colbert to be arrested on Monday, 27 November 2023, outside of his home because he was recovering from emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix.

He could not have been arrested while preparing to go for a run in a blue jogging suit, while wearing $60,000 Bulgari Flora sunglasses.

He would end up cancelling two weeks of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” as he continues to recover from his surgery.

Fact #3 : Stephen Colbert Is Still Active On Social Media

Stephen Colbert actually posted on Instagram about his surgery for a ruptured appendix on Tuesday, 28 November 2023:

Sorry to say that I have to cancel our shows this week. I’m sure you’re thinking, “Turkey overdose, Steve? Gravy boat capsize?” Actually, I’m recovering from surgery for a ruptured appendix. I’m grateful to my doctors for their care and to Evie and the kids for putting up with me. Going forward, all emails to my appendix will be handled by my pancreas.

This occurred one day after Michael Baxter / Tuffin claimed that JAG investigators arrested Stephen Colbert while he was preparing to go for a jog…

Fact #4 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that JAG investigators arrested Stephen Colbert is absurd. The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Stephen Colbert.

The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.

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

Fact #5 : JAG Officers Cannot Arrest Anyone

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

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

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

Leaked Last Messages From OceanGate Titan Sub?!

Did the last audio and video messages from the OceanGate Titan submersible that imploded get leaked?!

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

 

Claim : Last Messages From OceanGate Titan Sub Were Leaked!

People are sharing what they claim are the leaked last audio and video messages from the OceanGate Titan submersible that imploded, killing all five people onboard.

Leaked last messages from the lost submarine

The last audio clip from the Oceangate submarine

Real live audio from the submarine!!

Last communication from the OceanGate submarine, before it disappeared

Recommended : Did Asian Lady Shoot American Bully At Gas Station?!

 

Truth : OceanGate Titan Sub Did Not Send Any Last Messages!

This is yet another example of FAKE VIDEOS created by “content creators” to generate views and/or controversy, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : OceanGate Titan Is A Submersible

First, I should just quickly point out that the OceanGate Titan is not a submarine, but a Cyclops-class submersible.

Submarines can operate independently of other vessels, but a submersible has to be transported and supported by a separate surface vessel or platform.

The OceanGate Titan, for example, was transported and supported by a Canadian-flagged ship called Polar Prince, which tows a dry dock-like “Launch and Recovery Platform” that is used to launch and recover it.

Fact #2 : OceanGate Titan Communicates Only By Text Messaging

The viral videos circulating on WhatsApp, and social media platforms like TikTok and Twitter, are all fake because it is impossible for the OceanGate Titan to send any last messages by audio or video.

The Titan submersible can only communicate with its mothership by text message. That’s because the Titan is not tethered by cable to its mothership, and it cannot communicate by Wi-Fi or radio waves.

Fact #3 : OceanGate Titan Suffered A Catastrophic Implosion

At around 9:30 am NDT on 18 June 2023, the OceanGate Titan submersible began its two-hour descent to view the Titanic shipwreck.

The Titan was required to send a text message to its mothership every 15 minutes, which it did until 11:15 am – approximately 1 hour 45 minutes into its dive. That was its last communication with its mothership.

The US Navy detected an acoustic signature at around that time that was consistent with a catastrophic implosion.

On 22 June 2023, the Odysseus 6K remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) operated by Pelagic Research Services would locate a debris field about 500 metres from the Titanic shipwreck that confirmed the implosion of the Titan submersible.

Fact #4 : They Would Not Have Time To Send Any Message

The water pressure at that depth of 3.8 kilometres (3,800 metres) below the surface is approximately 400 atmospheres, or about 6,000 psi (pounds per square inch).

An implosion at such a high pressure would have instantly obliterated everyone inside the Titan submersible. It would be like being suddenly crushed by the weight of the Eiffel Tower.

All 5 people inside the Titan submersible would not have realised what happened, never mind have the time to send any last messages.

Fact #5 : Investigators Only Have Voice Recordings From Mothership

It is also impossible for any audio messages from the Titan submersible to leak because investigators only have access to the voice recordings from its mothership, the Polar Prince.

On 24 June 2023, the Polar Prince docked near the Canadian Coast Guard in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Canadian officials then took possession of its voyage data recorder and other systems with “useful information” for further investigations.

However, there are no data or voice recorders from the Titan submersible itself because its debris are scattered at a depth of some 4,000 metres (13,000 feet). The ROV that discovered the debris was not powerful enough to lift the debris. Any recovery operation will have to take place later.

Fact #6 : They Are Just Fake Videos

This is just another example of fake videos created to generate views and/or controversies. Here are some other recent examples you may have seen recently:

Did US Military Hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel?!

Did the US military just hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel at their Guantanamo Bay naval base?!

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

 

Claim : US Military Hanged Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel To Death!

On 18 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that the US Navy just hanged Moderna CEO, Stéphane Bancel at its Guantanamo Bay naval base!

It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Moderna CEO and eugenicist Stéphane Bancel lost his life Friday afternoon after a hangman for the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate Generals Corp’s put a noose around his neck and flipped a switch that opened a swinging door beneath the pharmaceutical mogul’s feet.

Bancel’s death was a quiet affair. Vice Adm. Darse E. Crandall did not attend the execution, nor did the cadre of military of brass that had been present at earlier hangings. Instead, Bradley Earl, Command Master Chief, JAG Law Program Judge Advocate General’s Corps, oversaw the execution.

 

Truth : US Military Did NOT Hang Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel!

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

Everything that Real Raw News posts must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of Stephane Bancel’s Arrest

Only Real Raw News has published his fantastical account of US special forces arresting Stéphane Bancel outside a DC restaurant. That’s because Michael Baxter / Tiffin made it up.

Naturally, there is no news from any legitimate news outlet, or the US military, about Stephane Bancel’s arrest sentencing and hanging in Gitmo.

How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story”?

Read more : Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel Arrested For Vaccine Fraud?

Fact #3 : Moderna Is A Public-Listed Company

Moderna is a public-listed company, and is traded on the Nasdaq as MRNA. Its shareholders would have to be informed if their company CEO was really arrested, and sentenced to death.

It is NOT POSSIBLE to keep quiet and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s not even legal to cover up such an event from the shareholders.

Fact #4 : Stéphane Bancel + Moderna Issued A Press Statement

On Thursday, November 16, 2022 – one day after Real Raw News claimed Stephane Bancel was sentenced to death, Moderna announced positive results for its two bivalent vaccines targeting the Omicron variant of COVID-19 – mRNA-1273.214, and mRNA-1273.222.

Instead of being incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay, as Michael Baxter/Tiffin claimed, Stephane Bancel announced from Cambridge, Massachusetts that:

We are pleased to see that both of our bivalent booster vaccine candidates offer superior protection against Omicron BA.4/BA.5 variants compared to our original booster, which is encouraging given COVID-19 remains a leading cause of hospitalisation and death globally. In addition, the superior response against Omicron persisted for at least three months after the mRNA-1273.214 booster.

Only Michael Baxter / Tiffin can persist with such a stupid lie, and only his idiotic fans will continue to believe his fake stories.

Fact #5 : Only Enemy Combatants Are Detained At Gitmo

It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that a US military tribunal in Gitmo (Guantanamo Bay) convicted Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death.

The Guantanamo Bay prison is only used to detain high-value enemy combatants. Stephane Bancel is not an enemy combatant by any military or legal definition, and would never be detained there.

If Stephane Bancel really committed a crime in the United States, he would have been brought to trial in an American court.

Fact #6 : US Military Tribunals Are Only For Foreign Combatants

It is also stupid for Real Raw News to claim that Bancel was trialed and convicted as an enemy combatant in a military tribunal, when he is a French civilian.

Military tribunals in the United States can only be conducted for members of enemy forces during wartime. The United States is not at war with France.

Needless to say – Stephane Bancel is also not in the French military, so even if he was arrested, there is no way he would be tried in a military tribunal.

Fact #7 : Death Sentences Take Years To Execute

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

That may be possible in a country like North Korea, but certainly not in the United States

Death row inmates in the United States wait an average of 178 months – about 15 years after their sentencing, before they are executed.

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

Fact #8 : US Military Has Not Executed Anyone Since 1961

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

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

Fact #9 : US Military Cannot Execute Anyone By Hanging

The US military can no longer execute anyone by hanging. In fact, the last US military execution by hanging occurred in 1961 – their last execution ever.

If the US military has to execute anyone, only lethal injection is allowed. Death by hanging is no longer allowed.

Everything that Real Raw News posts should be regarded as FAKE NEWS.

Did US Military Sentence Stephane Bancel To Death?!

Did the US military just convict Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel, and sentenced him to death?!

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

 

Claim : US Military Sentenced Stephane Bancel To Death!

On 15 November 2022, Michael Baxter (real name : Michael Tuffin) wrote an article claiming that a US military tribunal just convicted Moderna CEO, Stéphane Bancel, and sentenced him to death!

It is long and rambling, so please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

The U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps and Office of Military Commissions had difficulty finding three impartial panelists to hear evidence against Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel, for every interviewee knew someone whose life the vaccine had shattered—or killed. Following a weeklong search, JAG picked the three—two male Marine Corps officers and a female Navy captain—who expressed the least ill will toward Bancel. Nonetheless, they found Bancel guilty of murder five minutes after Vice Adm. Darse E. Crandall rested JAG’s case and implored the panel to deliver upon Bancel a punishment commensurate to the damage his vaccines had caused the world.

Fact #8 : Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Under FDA Regulatory Oversight

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was confirmed to be safe and effective, after it successfully concluded its clinical trials with an efficacy of 94.5% against symptomatic COVID-19 infection, in a large study involving over 30,000 participants.

The VRBPAC committee vetted and discussed the study findings on 17 December 2020, and recommended that the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine receive its Emergency Use Authorisation, which the FDA granted on 18 December 2020.

Like ALL other vaccines, the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was under FDA regulatory oversight. If Moderna lied about their results, the FDA would not have continued to re-issue or amend its EUA and full approval time and time again.

Did US Navy Fleet Escort Nancy Pelosi To Taiwan?!

Did a massive US Navy fleet of warships and fighters escort Nancy Pelosi safely to Taiwan?!

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

 

Claim : Massive US Fleet Had To Escort Nancy Pelosi To Taiwan!

People are sharing a video which claims to show a massive fleet of warships and fighters that the United States used to escort Nancy Pelosi safety to Taiwan.

Here are some of the accompanying descriptions :

Pelosi gets more firepower escorting her flight to Asia than any US President flying anywhere ever had in history.

See, how Nancy Pelosi reached Taiwan, Escorted by fighter jets and the strength of US Blue Navy

Retired Pakistani Brigadier Ashfaq Hassan also shared the video, claiming that the US Air Force was authorised to shoot at Chinese aircraft or warships interfering with her flight.

👇Arrival of US Air Force One in Taiwan with US official Nancy Pelosi.
20 Warplanes were escorting Nancy Pelosi’s plane including US fighter jets. US air force authorized to open fire in case of any Chinese interference on the plane carrying Nancy Pelosi.

 

Truth : US Fleet Did Not Escort Nancy Pelosi To Taiwan

This is another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on social media and WhatsApp groups, and here are the reasons why….

Fact #1 : Nancy Pelosi’s Flight Had No US Escort

Nancy Pelosi flew from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Taipei, Taiwan aboard a Boeing C-40C – the military version of the Boeing 737 airliner, operated by the US Air Force.

Her flight with the callsign SPAR19 flew to Taipei without US fighter or warship escort, but was met by Taiwanese fighter escorts on entering Taiwanese airspace.

Fact #2 : Video Was Recorded At Valiant Shield 2020

The video was recorded on September 25, 2020 – just over two years ago, and had nothing to do with Nancy Pelosi, or Taiwan.

If you watch the official Valiant Shield 2020 video, you will see the same aircraft fly over the same ships at around 1:39. Here was the official description of the aircraft flyover :

PHILIPPINE SEA (Sept. 25, 2020) From left, USNS Charles Drew (T-AKE 10), USS Comstock (LSD 45), USS Shiloh (CG 67), USS New Orleans (LPD 18), USS Chicago (SSN 721), USS America (LHA 6), USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), USNS John Ericsson (T-AO 194), USS Antietam (CG 54), USS Germantown (LSD 42), and USNS Sacagawea (T-AKE 2) steam in formation while E/A-18G Growlers and FA-18E Super Hornets from Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5, a P-8 Poseidon from Commander Task Force 72, and U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptors and a B-1B Bomber fly over the formation in support of Valiant Shield 2020.

In this screenshot, you can see the same 3 flights of aircraft flying over the same warships in Valiant Shield 2020.

Fact #3 : US Air Force Won’t Send A Bomber As Escort

The lead aircraft in the flyover has a very distinctive shape. Any military buff will immediately identify it as a Rockwell B-1B Lancer.

The US Air Force would never send the B-1B, because it’s a supersonic heavy bomber, and useless as an escort aircraft.

Fact #4 : P-8 Poseidon Is An ASW Aircraft

The aircraft that looked like a Boeing 737 is actually a P-8 Poseidon, which is based on the 737-800ERX.

It is an anti-submarine warfare aircraft, and is most certainly not a passenger transport aircraft like the Boeing C-40C.

Fact #5 : US Air Force Was Not Authorised To Open Fire

Retired Ashfaq Hassan falsely claimed that the US Air Force was authorised to open fire in case of Chinese interference with Nancy Pelosi’s flight.

It is such an absurd claim, because either party shooting at each other would have been considered an act of war.

In past confrontations, Chinese aircraft have only limited themselves to buzzing other aircraft and dumping chaff into their engines. No one ever fired a shot, because that would have led to an outbreak of war.

Read more : Did Chinese Bombers Fire On US Aircraft Carrier?!

Fact #6 : China Sent 10 Observers To Valiant Shield 2020

Interestingly, the Chinese are well-aware that this video is from Valiant Shield 2020, because that was the first time they were invited to observe the exercise.

China sent a 10-person delegation, including one high-ranking officer each from its Navy, Army and Air Force to observe Valiant Shield 2020.

Chinese Rear Admiral Zhang Leiyu – the leader of this delegation, even called it “a positive step in China-US military ties”.

Fact #7 : This Is Just Chinese Propaganda

This is just another example of Chinese propaganda created by the infamous Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛).

All of the wumao articles and videos that I looked at so far have proven to be false… at every instance. So please watch out for such false claims.

Were Anthony Fauci & Loretta Lynch Executed In Gitmo?!

Were Dr. Anthony Fauci and Loretta Lynch just executed in Gitmo by the US Navy Judge Advocate General?!

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

 

Claim : Dr. Anthony Fauci & Loretta Lynch Were Just Executed In Gitmo!

People have been sharing a Real Raw News article claiming that Dr. Anthony Fauci and former US Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, was just executed in Gitmo – the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base!

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

For reasons not given but easily imagined, the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps abruptly amended Anthony S. Fauci’s scheduled date of execution from April 26 to April 25 and on Monday morning fulfilled its obligation to execute not only him, but also GITMO’s other celebrity of the day, former Clinton advisor Loretta Lynch who was sentenced on 7 April.

 

Truth : Dr. Anthony Fauci & Loretta Lynch Were Not Executed!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by Real Raw News, to generate page views and money, and here are the reasons why…

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

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

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

This disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his article, lets him keep creating fake news that will go viral, and generate him money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website.

Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of The Executions

This is a continuation of the previous fake story about Dr. Anthony Fauci getting arrested by US special forces.

There is no legitimate report of Dr. Fauci or Ms. Lynch getting arrested, much less flown to Gitmo and executed without trial.

Why on Earth should anyone trust this man, Michael Tuffin, when no one else has verified such a fantastical story?

Fact #3 : Dr. Fauci Appeared On PBS After His “Execution”

Real Raw News claimed that Dr. Anthony Fauci was executed on April 25, 2022.

However, Dr. Fauci “miraculously” appeared on PBS News Hour with Judy Woodruff two days after his “execution” – on April 27, 2022.

If you watch the video, you can see that he’s still very much alive! Dr. Fauci was certainly not executed.

Fact #4 : NIAID + Pentagon Called It False

Representatives for both the NIAID and the Pentagon confirmed that the claim that Dr. Fauci was “sentenced to hang” was false.

Fact #5 : US Military Has No Jurisdiction Over Civilians

It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that the US Navy executed Dr. Fauci and Ms. Lynch.

The Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C. § 1385) prohibits “the wilful use of any part of the Army or Air Force to execute the law unless expressly authorised by the Constitution or an act of Congress“.

If the US government wanted to arrest Dr. Fauci or Ms. Lynch, they would have sent the police with a warrant, not the Navy.

The United States Armed Forces certainly has no legal jurisdiction over both Dr. Fauci and Ms. Lynch, and cannot put them to trial. The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) does NOT apply to civilians.

The 18 offences punishable by death under the UCMJ clearly do not apply to civilians – Mutiny or sedition, misbehaviour before the enemy, subordinate compelling surrender, improper use of countersign, forcing a safeguard, aiding the enemy, espionage, improper hazarding of vessel, murder, rape, desertion, assaulting or wilfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer, acting as a spy, and misbehaviour of a lookout.

And the US Armed Forces cannot execute US civilians willy-nilly, even if they flew them to Gitmo, because the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base is still considered US territory!

Fact #6 : Capital Punishment By Federal Government Was Halted In 2021

Even if they committed truly serious crimes, both Dr. Fauci and Loretta Lynch would not have been executed so quickly.

Never mind the fact that there was apparently no trial, even if they were sentenced to be executed, they would first spend many years on death row, as the appeal process takes place.

More importantly, US Attorney General Merrick Garland halted all federal executions on 1 July 2021, pending review of changes made under the Trump administration.

There is literally NO WAY either one of them would have been executed on 25 April 2022, as Real Raw News alleged.

Fact #7 : Lethal Injection Is Official Execution Method For US Military

The US military stopped executing convicted prisoners by hanging in 1961, which was the last military execution to date.

Currently, the official approved method of execution for the US military is lethal injection, not hanging.

If Dr. Fauci and/or Loretta Lynch was somehow executed by the US military, it would have been by lethal injection, not hanging.

Everything that Real Raw News posts should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Did Chinese Jamming Attacks Force US Navy To Withdraw?!

Was the US Navy forced to withdraw from the South China Sea after Chinese jamming attacks on their planes?

Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are…

 

Claim : US Navy Withdraws After Chinese Jamming Attacks!

This was the Chinese article that went viral after the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao) and netizens promoted it excitedly in July 2020, and again in 2022.

It was allegedly translated into English by Hong Kong-based analyst, Thomas Wing Polin, whose translation was widely circulated on social media

It was this English translation that went viral again social media, after tensions rose between the US and China over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The post is very long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…

Just now, the U.S. fighter plane flew over the South China Sea again.
Unexpectedly, it lost control halfway, and the U.S. finally admitted one thing.

Just now, the US CNBC website reported that several US Growler electronic warplanes were mysteriously attacked when they flew to the South China Sea again.

These warplanes were all out of control midway, but these warplanes were out of control for only a few seconds. Then the US military ordered the request. All fighters over the South China Sea withdrew.

 

US Navy Withdraws After Jamming : Just A Chinese Fantasy

That Chinese article was given some legitimacy after it was posted in Asia Times by Pepe Escobar.

However, it is COMPLETELY BOGUS, and is yet another example of Chinese propaganda warfare. Here are the facts…

Fact #1 : There Is No Such CNBC Report

A quick check on any search engine will show that CNBC never published a report on US Growler planes being attacked by Chinese jamming.

Fact #2 : No US Growler Planes Ever Lost Control From Chinese Jamming

No US EA-18G Growler planes ever lost control to Chinese jamming.

The Americans first detected Chinese jamming during USS Theodore Roosevelt’s deployment to the Philippines in 2018.

One EA-18G Growler pilot confirmed it in an interview with GMA News Online, but pointed out that they were not in danger :

The mere fact that some of your equipment is not working is already an indication that someone is trying to jam you. And so we have an answer to that.

A EA-18G Growler, XE 573 166857 of the VX-9 “Vampires” cruises over the desert during a mission. Shot 3/11/2009. RMS 227040

Fact #3 : EA-18G Growler Is An Electronics Warfare Aircraft

The Boeing EA-18G Growler is a two-seat electronics warfare aircraft, designed to jam enemy radar and electronics.

While the Growler is still vulnerable to powerful ground jamming, it is the worst aircraft for the Chinese to attack electronically because it’s the American aircraft most able to defend against, and respond to, a jamming attack.

Hence, the pilot’s response – “We have an answer to [Chinese jamming]“.

Fitted with a multitude of jamming pods and electronics, its electronics warfare officer can counter-jam Chinese radar and communications in the area.

And if they are ever in real danger, the pilot can fire an AGM-88 HARM (High-speed Anti-Radiation Missile) to destroy the Chinese jammer.

But perhaps that’s also the reason why the Chinese chose to attack the EA-18G Growler in 2018 – it was the aircraft best able to withstand such an attack.

Fact #4 : It Is Illegal To Jam Any Aircraft In International Airspace

China has the right to jam foreign military aircraft entering its airspace without permission, but the Chinese do not have the right to jam any aircraft, military or civilian, flying in international airspace.

While a jamming attack is not an act of war like firing a missile or shooting shells at the aircraft, it is still a hostile, provocative act that could result in the loss of aircraft and aircrew.

Needless to say – it is illegal for for anyone to electronically interfere with aircraft flying in international space, even if they are EA-18G Growler electronic warfare aircraft.

No nation that claims to be peaceful would behave so recklessly.

Fact #5 : China Pledged Not To Militarise The Spratlys

Back in 2015, Chinese President Xi Jinping declared that China has no intention to militarise the Spratly islands :

Relevant construction activity that China is undertaking in the Nansha Islands does not target or impact any country and there is no intention to militarise.

President Xi Jinping also reiterated that China is “committed to freedom of navigation in the sea” and to “resolving disputes through dialogue“.

The presence of military jamming equipment in 2018 though would suggest that President Xi was lying, or has no control of what really goes on in the South China Sea.

It doesn’t help that the writer specifically pointed out how China has militarised those islands :

Since the construction of China’s island and reef defense began, the living space of US military fighters and warships has been shrinking. If China continues to develop like this, the United States will not have any chance of winning.

Fact #6 : Jammers Are Offensive Weapons

The claim that electronic jammers are defensive weapons is nonsensical. Electronic jamming is an offensive capability.

Imagine if your neighbour uses an electronic jammer to disrupt your Wi-Fi network, claiming that he has the right to defend his own Wi-Fi network. Which court in the world would agree with him?

The Chinese author of that fantasy piece actually debunked his own claim that jammers are defensive weapons, noting that “it is an electronic jamming device that can cut off the enemy’s radio system. The attacked fighter will be out of control. Since it cannot be controlled, these fighters will soon crash.

Does that sound like a defensive weapon to you? Serious lack of logic and common sense.

Russian Krasukha ground jamming system

Fact #7 : Electronic Jammers Do Not Affect Flight Controls

While electronic jammers can suppress or disrupt radar and communications, they cannot render an aircraft uncontrollable.

Airplanes will not crash simply because they lose radar and communications. Planes that lose radar and communications can still fly…

So the claim that Chinese jammers caused the Growler planes to almost crash is ludicrous.

Fact #8 : Chinese Jammers Do Not Cover Half The South China Sea

While the writer claims that the US military acknowledged that China’s electronic jamming system has covered more than half of the South China Sea, this is yet another fantasy.

The Chinese only deployed military jamming equipment to several artificial islands they created on Mischief Reef and Fiery Cross.

And as powerful as ground-based jamming can be, their effectiveness is greatly reduced by range. That’s why China introduced their Xi’an H-6G airborne jamming aircraft in 2018.

These long-range jamming aircraft would not be necessary if China is already capable of jamming electronics across such a vast distance.

Fact #9 : The United States Did Not Withdraw

The United States did not withdraw from the South China Sea in July 2020, as claimed by the article.

In fact, they sent two aircraft carriers – USS Nimitz and USS Ronald Reagan – together with their battle groups into the South China Sea just before the Chinese article was published.

It was the first time two carrier groups operated together in the South China Sea since 2009. The third US carrier – USS Theodore Roosevelt – was also nearby, in the Philippine Sea.

The US Navy Chief of Information left no doubt that the two carriers were there to assert that the South China Sea are international waters, not Chinese waters.

Not did it withdraw in April 2021 when the same article went viral again.

In April 2021, the US Navy posted this famous photo of the captain and executive officer of USS Mustin (DDG-89) –  an Arleigh Burke guided missile destroyer watching the Liaoning carrier group in the Philippine Sea.

The photo left no doubt that the US Navy was not going anywhere, and would shadow Chinese naval forces wherever they are in the South China Sea… and beyond.

Neither did they withdraw in 2022 when the same fake story went viral again.

On 20 January 2022, USS Benfold – an Arleigh Burke guided missile destroyer – conducted a Freedom of Navigation operation by sailing past the Paracel Islands (which the Chinese call Xisha Islands).

On 24 January 2022, two US aircraft carrier groups led by USS Carl Vinson and USS Abraham Lincoln entered the South China Sea for training exercises.

This fake story appears to be part of the disinformation campaign conducted by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛).

Was US Nuclear Submarine Damaged By Chinese Planes?!

Was the US nuclear submarine, USS Connecticut, attacked and damaged by Chinese planes?

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

 

Claim : US Nuclear Submarine Was Damaged By Chinese Planes!

There have been several blogs claiming that the US nuclear submarine, USS Connecticut, was actually attacked and damaged by Chinese planes.

Here is an example that is being eagerly shared on WhatsApp. It’s really long, so just skip to next section for the facts…

Dear Good People, (MP) This is the real story behind USA nuclear submarine incidence near to China’s Paracel Islands. The nuclear sub was tracked and China jammed all its electronic system. The submarine moved aimlessly and hit by China’s submarine trap wall. The nuclear submarine was damaged and know no direction. It has to emerge to China satisfaction. China of course, knew USA has learned a lesson. Next time, in a real war, the nuclear sub would be sunk….

 

Truth : US Nuclear Submarine Was Not Damaged By Chinese Planes

This is yet another example of Chinese propaganda / fake news, which attempts to overwhelm the reader by sheer volume of misinformation.

The creator intentionally writes such a long, rambling story to make it appear more convincing to readers who are likely not very knowledgeable about military technology.

Here’s another example : US Withdraws After Chinese Jamming Attack?

Here is a quick summary of the facts, which prove that the writer is a liar and the “article” is simply FAKE NEWS.

  1. It is incredibly difficult to detect and track USS Connecticut.
  2. It is not possible to jam a submarine’s electronics system.
  3. China does not have a submarine trap wall.
  4. The USS Connecticut was not crippled, and did not require assistance to return to Guam.
  5. China was not holding any war games at that time of the collision.
  6. China did not attack the USS Connecticut.
  7. China did not know about the collision until 5 days later.
  8. There is no evidence of any mutiny aboard the USS Connecticut
  9. Only 11 sailors were injured, not 15
  10. Submarines do not use radar underwater, they use sonar.
  11. There are no fixed sea or air lanes over international waters.

For those who want the details, here are the reasons why this is just Chinese propaganda / fake news.

Fact #1 : USS Connecticut Is Super Hard To Detect

The USS Connecticut is a Seawolf-class submarine, which is noted for being extremely quiet and hard to detect.

Thanks to a slew of advanced noise suppression design features and technologies, including pump jet propulsion, it has an operational noise level of only 95 decibels – just 5 decibels above the background ocean noise.

That’s why the United States uses one of the Seawolf submarines – the USS Jimmy Carter – to conduct clandestine missions.

It would be a major feat to detect the USS Connecticut underwater, much less track it. Unless the writer can back up his/her claim, it is hogwash.

Fact #2 : China Did Not Jam Its Electronics System

With only a few exceptions, submarines like the USS Connecticut are made of high-tensile steel.

The strong steel hull not only protects the submarine from the crushing pressure when it dives, it literally works as a Faraday cage – protecting the submarine against electromagnetic fields.

Therefore, it is not possible to jam the electronics system of any submarine. That is complete and utter nonsense.

Fact #3 : China Does Not Have A Submarine Trap Wall

The writer appears to believe that it would be possible to build some kind of underwater Great Wall of China.

There is no such thing as a submarine trap wall. What does that even mean???

Fact #4 : USS Connecticut Was Seaworthy

The crew of the USS Connecticut did not lose their sense of direction. Neither was the submarine crippled.

They surfaced after the collision, because it was their standard operating procedure after any non-combat collision.

According to the US Pacific Fleet, the submarine was in a “safe and stable condition” :

The submarine remains in a safe and stable condition. USS Connecticut’s nuclear propulsion plant and spaces were not affected and remain fully operational. The extent of damage to the remainder of the submarine is being assessed. The U.S. Navy has not requested assistance. The incident will be investigated.

It should be noted that the USS Connecticut sailed to Guam for 6 days, without assistance.

Fact #5 : China Was Not Holding Any War Games At That Time

When the USS Connecticut collision happened on 2 October 2021, China was in between two naval war games :

  • 23-27 August : Seaborne assault war game in Vladivostok, Russia
  • 14-17 October : Russia and China held naval drills in the Sea of Japan.

So the writer’s claim that China was conducting naval war games at that time is completely false.

The only war game being conducted around that time involved the HMS Queen Elizabeth and the USS Ronald Reagan and USS Carl Vinson carrier groups in the Philippine Sea on 4 October 2021.

Fact #6 : China Did Not Attack USS Connecticut

The claim that China sent out waves of over a hundred attack aircraft to hunt for the submarine is false.

So many flights would have raised concerns by surrounding countries, and unless they are anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft, they would be useless in the hunt for a submarine.

China certainly would not be so stupid as to attack the USS Connecticut, which would have been considered an act of war against the United States.

Fact #7 : China Did Not Know Until 5 Days Later…

China was not even aware of the collision until the United States Naval Institute (USNI) reported on the accident FIVE days later on 7 October 2021.

By then, the USS Connecticut was just a day away from reaching Guam for inspection and repairs.

The Chinese think tank SCSPI only located the USS Connecticut on 8 October – in a 5 day-old satellite photo that showed it sailing on the surface.

At that time, the USS Connecticut was about 43 nautical miles (79 km) southeast from the Paracel Islands, and about 454 km away from Hainan Island.

Fact #8 : No Evidence Of Mutiny

The writer claimed that there was a mutiny onboard the USS Connecticut because the Commander refused to surface the submarine.

How does he know that? What evidence has he proffered? None at all. It’s all one big fantasy.

It doesn’t even make sense – why would the sailors mutiny? Why would the submarine commander or his XO (Executive Officer) refuse to surface a submarine in trouble?

The SOP for any submarine in trouble is to surface, and that’s what the USS Connecticut did. That very fact proves that there was no mutiny, and the writer lied.

Fact #9 : Only 11 Sailors Were Injured

The writer even made up the claim that 15 sailors were injured in the mutiny. That’s nonsense.

11 sailors aboard the USS Connecticut suffered mild to moderate injuries, none life-threatening.

If the writer can lie about a simple fact like that, you have to ask yourself – what else is he lying about?

Fact #10 : Nuclear Submarines Do Not Use Radar Underwater

The writer falsely claimed that a nuclear attack submarine like the USS Connecticut would be able to avoid obstacles because it would have the most sophisticated radars.

The truth is – submarines do not use radar systems underwater, they use sonar systems. Even then, military submarines rarely use active sonar, as it exposes their positions.

It is not possible for USS Connecticut to “see” undersea structures using its passive sonar system. Instead, the crew relies on underwater charts and inertial navigation systems to avoid underwater obstacles.

But unless they regularly fix their position using GPS, small errors in their position will compound over time, potentially placing the submarine hundreds of metres out of position. This could be the reason for the collision.

It is shocking that the writer is unaware of such basic military / scientific facts.

Fact #11 : No Fixed Sea / Air Lanes Over International Waters

The writer falsely claimed that commercial ships and airliners have to strictly travel in fixed international lanes.

In reality, commercial ships and planes use routes that are best for fuel economy and/or safety over international waters. Ships and planes are also free to adjust their bearings to avoid bad weather, for example.

Countries can only control movement of ships and planes within their territorial waters and airspace.

It is therefore false for the writer to claim that ships or planes that deviate from fixed international sea / air lanes will be shot down or sunk.
