Was Israel Caught Ordering Soldiers To Kill US Citizens?!

Was Israel just caught ordering its soldiers to kill US citizens who support Palestine?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Israel Caught Ordering Soldiers To Kill US Citizens!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that Israel was just caught ordering its soldiers to kill US citizens who support Palestine!

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

Israel Caught Ordering Soldiers To Kill US Citizens Who Support Palestine

The Israeli government has authorized soldiers to detain and execute US citizens in Israel who show support for Palestine.

Truth : Israel Did Not Order Soldiers To Kill US Citizens!

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

Fact #1 : Israel Did Not Order Soldiers To Kill US Citizens

Let me start by pointing out that Israel did not order its soldiers to kill US citizens who support Palestine!

If that happened, it would have resulted in massive outrage in the United States, and reported widely by the mainstream media. Yet none of that happened … because it was made up!

Israel never authorised its soldiers to “detain and execute US citizens in Israel who show support for Palestine” as claimed by The People’s Voice.

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

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided zero evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim that Israel ordered its soldiers to kill US citizens who support Palestine.

In fact, the The People’s Voice article only made that claim in its title, and the lede. After that, there was no mention of any Israeli order or permission for its soldiers to “detain and execute US citizens in Israel who show support for Palestine”.

Fact #3 : Omar Assad Died In The West Bank

It is odd that The People’s Voice article would mention Omar Assad since he was not arrested and executed in Israel. Omar Assad was detained and died in village of Jilijliya, which is located in the West Bank, north of Ramallah.

The West Bank is Palestinian, albeit under Israeli occupation and co-administered by Israel and the Palestinian National Authority (PNA). 99.3% of Jilijliya is classified as Area A, under PNA authority.

Fact #4 : Omar Assad Died In 2022

It is also odd that The People’s Voice article would mention Omar Assad since he died more than 2 years earlier, on 12 January 2022!

On that fateful day, members of the Netzah Yehuda Battalion detained 78 year-old Omar Assad, who was then handcuffed, gagged, and forced to lie on his stomach for up to an hour. He would end up dying from stress-induced cardiac arrest. It is unknown if they were aware that Assad was a US citizen.

Omar Assad’s death led the US State Department to take particular interest in the Netzah Yehuda Battalion. It not only sent Hady Amr – the American special representative for Palestinian affairs to visit Assad’s family, it also asked the US embassy in Israel to prepare a report on the battalion.

By November 2022, the Israeli military said it was preparing to indict two of its officers for Omar Assad’s death, and it moved the Netzah Yehuda battalion from the West Bank to the Golan Heights.

Finally, in June 2023, the Israeli military announced that it would punish the soldiers involved in Omar Assad’s detention, but will not charge them for his death as it was impossible to determine if his death was caused specifically by the soldiers’ conduct.

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:

Did WHO DG Have Robert Fico Shot Over Pandemic Treaty?!

Did WHO DG Tedros arrange for Robert Fico to be shot after failing to convince him to continue with the Pandemic Treaty?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WHO DG Had Robert Fico Shot Over Pandemic Treaty!

People are sharing a video of Meryl Nass, who appeared to suggest that WHO DG Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus may have ordered the failed assassination of Robert Fico, after failing to convince its populist Prime Minister to continued with the Pandemic Treaty!

Sense Receptor / Kripp-M (German)

“[F]irst Tedros was there [in Slovakia], and then someone tries to assassinate him [PM Robert Fico]…I can’t guarantee you the two things are related, but it is extraordinary that every major newspaper claimed immediately that the assassination was the result of a ‘lone wolf.'”

Recommended : Was Robert Fico shot for rejecting WHO Pandemic Treaty?!

 

Truth : WHO DG Did Not Have Robert Fico Shot Over Pandemic Treaty!

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

Fact #1 : Dr. Tedros Did Not Fly To Slovakia To Meet Robert Fico!

Let me start by pointing out that WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus did not fly to Slovakia to speak with Prime Minister Robert Fico, in an attempt to convince him to continue with the Pandemic Treaty.

In fact, the last time Dr. Tedros flew to Slovakia was in June 2022almost two years ago, when he attended the GLOBSEC Bratislava Forum, with Zuzana Čaputová, the President of the Slovak Republic.

Fact #2 : WHO DG Tedros Was In Paris + Geneva

Robert Fico was shot by a gunman while greeting people outside the House of Culture in Handlova, at around 2:30 PM local time on Wednesday, 15 May 2024.

A day before Fico was shot, WHO DG Tedros was in Paris, attending the Summit for Clean Cooking in Africa. He even posted photos of a high-level dialogue hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron that day!

After that, a WHO spokesperson confirmed that Dr. Tedros flew back to WHO headquarters in Geneva, where he posted his condemnation of the attempt assassination of Robert Fico, before hosting Francophone ambassadors in Geneva.

It would be a miraculous feat for Dr. Tedros to be in two places at the same time. Needless to say, neither Meryl Nass, nor the people sharing her video / claims, ever provide any evidence WHO DG Tedros was in Slovakia in May 2024…

Recommended : Did Slovakia PM Just Reject Signing WHO Pandemic Treaty?!

Fact #3 : Robert Fico Did Not Reject WHO Pandemic Treaty

Claims that Robert Fico was shot because he rejected the WHO Pandemic Treaty is nonsense. Robert Fico did not recently formally and/or publicly reject the WHO Pandemic Treaty, as some people have claimed or suggested.

It was Peter Kotlár, the Slovak Government Plenipotentiary for the COVID-19 pandemic, who formally and publicly rejected the “current version” of the WHO Pandemic Treaty on 10 May 2024. Even that was not a final, conclusive rejection of the WHO Pandemic Treaty.

While Robert Fico himself appear to speak out against the WHO Pandemic Treaty, he did not actually say that he was rejecting the WHO Pandemic Treaty. He only said that the SMER party will not support expanding the powers of the WHO, at the expense of the state’s right to tackle future pandemics.

In other words, it very much sounds like he’s okay with WHO gaining more powers, as long as Slovakia still retains the right to tackle future pandemics its own way.

Fact #4 : Fico’s Ministers Called It Politically Motivated

In addition, claims that media outlets were instructed to claim that the shooting was committed by a lone wolf is equally nonsensical.

For one thing – the gunman, who was later identified as 71 year-old Juraj Cintula from Levice, was immediately detained by Fico’s security detail.

Then, both Defense Minister Robert Kaliňák and Interior Minister Matúš Šutaj Eštok called the shooting “politically motivated,” with Šutaj Eštok saying that “the suspect made the decision to do it shortly after the presidential election,” which ended just last month – on 6 April 2024.

Juraj Cintula frequented events organised by the pro-Russian paramilitary group, Slovenski branci (Slovakian Recruits), and praised the group and its anti-immigration stance multiple times on social media.

There is no evidence that Juraj Cintula was inspired to shoot Robert Fico because he was against the WHO Pandemic Treaty. In fact – none of those who made those suggestions or claims ever provided any evidence to back them up!

Thomas Kingston : Cause Of Death Was Not Vaccine SADS!

Find out why Thomas Kingston – Lady Gabriella Windsor’s husband, did not die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine, and what was his real cause of death!

 

Claim : Thomas Kingston Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Thomas Kingston died suddenly at just 45 years of age, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the husband of Lady Gabriella Windsor, and Pippa Middleton’s ex died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine!

𝕏NEWS NANCY𝕏 : 🚨UK — Thomas Kingston, has died suddenly. He was 45.
Reports: No foul play.
Source: Buckingham Palace

We all know how common it is for a healthy 45-year-old man to die. Oh wait — it’s only BECOME common since the MANDATED rollout.

I’d like to say rest in peace, but NO ONE should be resting in peace until their family cares enough to INSIST on using the available vaccine technology to trace the death of origin.

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.

Why Viral Video Does Not Show Bangkok Mall Shooting!

The video which appears to show a gunman shooting at people does not actually the recent Siam Paragon mall shooting in Bangkok!

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

 

Claim : Viral Video Shows Bangkok Mall Shooting!

People are sharing a video on WhatsApp and social media platforms, claiming that it shows the recent Siam Paragon mall shooting in Bangkok!

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

 

Truth : Viral Video Does Not Show Bangkok Mall Shooting!

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

Fact #1 : Video Was Posted In Douyin

I traced the video that was posted to Douyin – China’s version of TikTok. The original poster (OP) is a Douyin user called Master ho (@yzz945201314), and here is the direct link to the video.

Fact #2 : Video Was Posted In August 2023

Master ho posted the video on 9 August 2023. The Siam Paragon mall shooting in Bangkok only occurred on 3 October 2023almost two months later.

So there is simply impossible for the viral video to be of the Siam Paragon mall shooting in Bangkok.

Fact #3 : Video Was Recorded In Phuket In June 2023

Even though the viral video was only posted to Douyin in August, it was originally recorded more than a month earlier – on Friday, 28 June 2023.

It was also not recorded in the Siam Paragon Mall in Bangkok. Rather, it was recorded in the Domestic Terminal of the Phuket International Airport.

If you look carefully at the video, you will notice the airport check-in counters, and people carrying luggages. The video was obviously recorded at an airport, and not a mall.

Fact #4 : Siam Paragon Shooter Was Only Armed With Pistol

The Siam Paragon mall shooter was an unnamed 14 year-old teenager from the nearby private secondary school – The Essence.

The boy was only armed with a modified Glock 9mm pistol, and did not have any long guns with him.

The shooter in the viral video was not only armed with a handgun, he also had what looked like an automatic rifle.

Fact #5 : It Was An Active Shooter Drill

The viral video does not show any actual crime, or gun violence taking place. It was an emergency security drill to simulate a response to an “active shooter” in the Phuket International Airport. In the photo above, you can even see a man taking photos or videos of the drill!

The drill was called “Full-scal exercise of Phuket International Airport Emergency Plan (PEMEX 2023), and conducted on the second floor of the Domestic Terminal, at around 11 PM – -after boarding for the final departing domestic flight had cleared the area.

The exercise was designed to simulate the coordinated response of security and anti-terrorism personnel to an active shooter taking hostages in the domestic terminal area. Thai agencies and personnel that took part in this PEMEX 2023 exercise included:

  • Thai Provincial Police Region 8
  • Sakhu Police
  • Phuket Airline Operations Committee (AOC)
  • Airports of Thailand ground service company (AOTGA)
  • Airports of Thailand private security company (AOT AVSEC)
  • Vachira Phuket Hospital
  • Phuket Provincial Public Health Office
  • Subdistrict Administrative Organisations (OrBorTor) for Mai Khao, Sakhu, and Thepkrasattri.

Recommended : Did US Army Lose + Recover Stolen Sarin Gas Rockets?!

Fact #6 : There Are Many Clues In The Video

The truth is – anyone who analyses the video will realise that there are many “issues” with this video:

  • the gunshots do not sound like real gunshots
  • gunshots ring out even when the gunman isn’t shooting
  • none of the victims are bleeding
  • the person recording the video is bravely standing up to record the video for almost 2.5 minutes
  • the person recording the video can be heard laughing at around 0:18 in the video
  • at around 1:30, another man can be seen recording the scene from the upper floor

Fact #7 : OP Likely Reposted From A Different Source

The Douyin poster, Master ho, does not appear to be the person recording the video. He mistakenly labelled the location as Songkhla Airport – more accurately known as the Hat Yai International Airport in the Songkhla Province.

泰国宋卡机场发生枪击事件,听说是演习农 因 因 因

A shooting incident occurred at Songkhla Airport in Thailand. It was said that it an exercise.

However, he clearly stated in the description, and his subsequent comments, that it was just a drill.

Whoever copied this video from his Douyin account is certainly aware that the video was of an airport drill, and posted almost 3 months earlier.

The only conclusion we can draw from this is that – whoever copied the video to share in October 2023, is intentionally trying to mislead people.

Did Patriots Fan Dale Mooney Die Suddenly From Vaccine?!

Did Patriots fan Dale Mooney die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine during a game with the Miami Dolphins?!

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

 

Claim : Patriots Fan Dale Mooney Died Suddenly From Vaccine!

Right after news broke that a Patriots fan called Dale Mooney died suddenly during a game with the Miami Dolphins, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the he died from the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Truth : Patriots Fan Dale Mooney Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all sudden 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 : Dale Mooney Died After Being Punched

On Sunday night, 17 September 2023, 53 year-old Dale Mooney, was watching the game between the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins at the Gillette Stadium, when there was bickering between two sections of the 300 tier.

His friends who were watching the game with him said that a group of Dolphins fans “verbally taunted” Dale Mooney, who was standing at the aisle. He suddenly pushed his way into the other section to tussle with the group.

Some people tried to break up the altercation while others tried to get away. Mooney’s Patriots hat fell off just before he was punched twice in the face by a Dolphins fan. He then collapsed to the ground, and never got back up.

Police and fire personnel responded quickly to the scene at around 10:57 PM, and performed CPR on him for 10-15 minutes but could not revive him. Dale Mooney was taken to the Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, where he was pronounced dead.

One witness at the scene, Joseph Kilmartin, said that Dale Mooney fell unconscious after getting punched twice in his face.

They started tussling around for a few minutes. At one point another Dolphins fan walked over. He punched him three times, and the man just went out. It was pretty hard to watch.

Mooney’s widow, who was not at the game, later claimed that he was punched to death after being taunted by Dolphins fans. An eyewitness claimed that Dale Mooney and the Dolphins fan who punched him had been arguing for much of the game.

Obviously, the COVID-19 vaccine has no bearing on Dale Mooney’s death, as he only collapsed after being punched three time, with two hits right in his face.

Fact #2 : Dale Mooney Will Undergo An Autopsy

Norfolk County DA’s office has opened an investigation following “normal protocol”, with an autopsy due to take place in coming days.

A man in his 30s, who was described as having a salt and pepper beard was led away by the police. However, no arrest has been made over this incident, and no changes have been filed so far.

Until and unless the autopsy report reveals that the COVID-19 vaccines somehow caused his death, anyone who claims that Dale Mooney died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccines is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Dale Mooney Was Vaccinated

Despite claims that Dale Mooney was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Dale Mooney was unvaccinated against COVID-19. After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

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 reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Dale Mooney was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #4 : Claims Of COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Often Proven False

Most claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

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

Did Chinese Driver Get Attacked With Axe For Honking?!

Did a Chinese driver get attacked with an axe after he honked at a Malay driver in front of him?!

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

 

Claim : Chinese Driver Attacked With Axe After Honking!

People are now sharing four videos together with this viral message about a Chinese driver getting attacked with an axe after he honked at a Malay driver in front of him!

Forwarded by another chat group. The Chinese driver at the back horn the malay guy in front. Maybe the malay driver in bad mood took an axe and chopped him.

Be patience on the road and do not horn unnecessary.

I will not be posting the videos, because they are shocking in nature. However, these two screenshots should give you an idea of the violence, and the videos I’m referring to.

Recommended : Did Gopeng-Tapah Landslide Crush Three Cars?!

 

Truth : No Chinese Driver Was Hacked With Axe For Honking!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Incident Occurred In Sabah

Let me start by pointing out that the viral videos are genuine, and were not edited. There was a recent incident where a man was hacked with an axe in Malaysia.

The incident occurred on Wednesday night, 9 August 2023, in Likas, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Fact #2 : The Man Did Not Honk At Anyone

The incident did not involve honking. The victim – a 37 year-old man, had earlier parked his car at an open space near Menara Kinabalu – the Sabah state administrative centre.

He was having a meal with his 30 year-old girlfriend in his parked car, when three men approached his car at around 9 PM. One of the three man then proceeded to attack the victim with an axe.

The couple managed to escape to the nearby Alamesra police station to seek help, and lodge a police report. The victim was later sent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment. His girlfriend was not injured.

Fact #3 : Police Are Looking For The Three Men

The police are now looking for the three man to help with their investigation into the case – 37 year-old Withal Jalali, 27 year-old Abdel Jalali, and another man who has not been identified.

Those with information of the individuals or the incident are advised to come forward and report the matter at the nearest police station or contact the investigating officer Inspector Muhammad Khaidir Zakaria at 014-801-961.

Recommended : PDRM Warning : It’s Illegal To Stop On Zebra Crossing!

Left : Winhal Jalali | Right : Abdel Jalali

Fact #4 : The Motive Was Not Road Rage

The man who attacked the victim with an axe is believed to be Winhal Jalali – the woman’s ex-husband.

The woman is believed to have married the suspect in 2015, before they divorced about a month ago. She has known the victim for six months before starting a romantic relationship two weeks ago.

Kota Kinabalu Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Zaidi Abdullah confirmed the incident on Friday, 11 August 2023, stating:

The man suffered multiple injuries to his face, hands and foot following the attack. We believe the motive of the attack was jealousy.

The case is being investigated under Section 326 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt using a dangerous weapon.

Fact #5 : Victim’s Identity Is Still Unknown

The victim’s identity is currently unknown. The police have not revealed his name, much less his race. Therefore, there is no evidence that he is a Chinese man.

Until and unless the victim and/or the police reveals his identity and race, anyone who tells you that he is a Chinese man is likely telling a tall tale.

Fact #6 : Two Suspects Are Suluk

According to the Kota Kinabalu police, the two suspects who have been identified – Winhal Jalali and Abdel Jalali, are from the Suluk ethnic group.

In other words – the claim in the viral warning that the driver was attacked by a “moody Malay man” is categorically false.

Is Prince William Violently Abusing Kate Middleton?!

Is Prince William violently abusing Kate Middleton, because he has always been a violent man?!

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

 

Claim : Prince William Is Violently Abusing Kate Middleton!

People are sharing a Music Mundial article which claims that Prince William is violently abusing Kate Middleton!

Here is the viral Music Mundial article. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Kate Middleton has been suffering from severe mistreatment by her husband, Prince William

No Evidence Prince William Is Violently Abusing Kate Middleton!

This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS created by Music Mundial to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : They Are Prince + Princess Of Wales

Music Mundial falsely called Prince William and Kate Middleton the Duke and Duchess of Wales. Wales is a country, not a dukedom. So there is no Duke or Duchess of Wales.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are, respectively, the Prince and Princess of Wales, not the Duke and Duchess of Wales.

If Music Mundial cannot even get this simple fact right, just how much can you really trust their articles?

Fact #2 : Kate Middleton Did Not Say She Was Being Abused

Music Mundial claimed that the Princess of Wales warned that “she has been suffering strong mistreatment by her husband, Prince William.

That’s utter nonsense. There has been NO REPORT of Kate Middleton ever claiming that Prince William was abusing her.

Fact #3 : MARCA Only Claimed Verbal + Emotional Abuse 

Music Mundial claimed that “it has been reported that Prince William is allegedly carrying out violent acts against the mother of his three children.” It then claims that it was not the first time, before quoting MARCA as the source of Prince William’s prior violent abuse against Kate Middleton.

The trouble is – MARCA – a Spanish sports newspaper, only reported that a palace staff member claimed that Kate Middleton was being “subjected to emotional and verbal abuse” by Prince William. There was no mention of Prince William committing physical violence on Kate Middleton.

[A] staff member has come forward with some truly shocking allegations. This person claims that Kate Middleton has been subjected to emotional and verbal abuse by her husband, Prince William.

According to the source, the alleged mistreatment has taken a toll on Kate Middleton‘s mental health, leaving her struggling to cope with the constant pressures of her royal duties and the challenges of maintaining a harmonious marriage.

“Kate’s really been through the wringer lately,” the source shared. “The way William treats her is just awful, and it’s been really hard on her. She’s such a strong person, but even she has her breaking point.”

Interestingly, MARCA quotes a Twitter post that refers to a Music Mundial article in its post! Do they have some kind of connection, I wonder…

Fact #4 : Neither Websites Offered Any Evidence

Neither MARCA, not Music Mundial, offered no actual evidence Prince William was physically, emotionally, or verbally abusing Kate Middleton. No photo, no video, no audio recording, nothing.

Now, we certainly do not know what goes on in private, behind closed doors. Perhaps Prince William is physically, emotionally, or verbally abusing Kate Middleton. But it could just as well be the complete opposite, or absolutely bogus.

It does not appear that MARCA corroborated its source’s claims of emotional and verbal abuse with other palace staff members. As for Music Mundial, it certainly did nothing to verify anything in its article. Heck, it couldn’t even get their titles right!

Fact #5 : No Evidence Of Rose Hanbury Affair

Music Mundial has been “reporting” on the Rose Hanbury affair with Prince William for a long time. But we have consistently debunked its claims:

Fact #6 : Prince Louis Photo Was From June 2022

Music Mundial posted a photo of Prince Louis covering up Kate Middleton’s mouth, as evidence that he was trying to protect his mother from his father’s “abuse”.

That was a screenshot from a video taken on June 5, 2022 – during the Platinum Jubilee celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne.

At that time, Prince Louis was making funny faces in front of the cameras, which led Kate Middleton to apparently admonish him. He wasn’t having any of it, so he attempted to cover her mouth twice to stop her interruption.

He then proceeds to stick out his tongue and waggle his fingers at her. His uncle, Mike Tindall, who was just sitting behind him, also tried to calm him down, giving him the “I’m watching you” gesture.

From what we can all see – Prince Louis, like other children, were acting out because they were bored sitting down during the Platinum Jubilee. It’s not because he was trying to protect his mother from his father’s “violent acts”. That’s patently absurd!

Fact #7 : This Is Just Music Mundial Fake News

This appears to be nothing more than yet another example of celebrity fake news posted by Music Mundial. Here are examples of Music Mundial fake news that I looked into recently:

Everything Music Mundial posts should be considered as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Did Texas Mall Killer Target Only Chinese People?!

Did the Texas mall gunman, Mauricio Garcia, target only people of Chinese descent because he was anti-Asian?!

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

 

Claim : Texas Mall Killer Targeted Only Chinese People!

People are sharing a photo of an Asian family, together with a photo of them lying dead on the ground, claiming that the Texas mall gunman was targeting only people of Chinese descent, because he was anti-Asian!

This is the post I received. The whole family of Chinese descent were killed in Texas by a gunman .. What a pity . Don’t go to US bro . The killer said he wants to kill all Asian people .

Out of respect to the deceased and their families, I will not be sharing the photo that shows them lying on the floor after being shot dead.

Instead, let me share with you this photo by Jon Raedle of Getty Images which conveys the deep grief of yet another American community traumatised by senseless gun violence.

Truth : Texas Mall Gunman Did Not Kill Chinese People At All!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by pro-CCP netizens, and promoted / shared by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) and its supporters, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Viral Photos Were From 2023 Texas Mall Shooting

The two viral photos were from the recent mass shooting at the Allen Premium Outlets in Allen, Texas, which happened on Saturday, May 6, 2023.

Let me give you some context on this shooting, since mass shootings happen so often in the United States, it’s easy to mix up the details.

At 3:36 PM that day, 33 year-old Mauricio Martinez Garcia got out of his silver Dodge Charger, and started shooting at a crowd in the parking lot before making his way into the mall.

Armed with three guns and protected by a ballistic vest, he shot 15 people in just three to four minutes using an AR-15 style rifle.

The Allen Police Department was notified at 3:40 PM, but fortunately, there was an officer who was already at the mall on a different call. He engaged the shooter and killed him within minutes of hearing the gunshots. Otherwise, many more people would have been killed or injured.

Fact #2 : No Chinese People Were Killed

The claim that he killed an entire Chinese family is nonsense – no Chinese people were killed in the Texas mall massacre.

Out of the 15 people Mauricio Garcia shot, eight were killed while seven were wounded, with three in critical condition. None of them are known to be of Chinese ethnicity.

Here is what we know so far about the eight people who were killed in the Texas mall mass shooting:

Three Members Of The Cho Family

Three members of a Korean American family were killed – husband Cho Kyu Song, 37, and his wife,  Cindy Cho (nee Kang Shin Young), 35, as well as three year-old James Cho.

Their eldest son, William Cho, who just celebrated his sixth birthday four days before the tragedy, is the only surviving member of their family. He was rushed to the hospital with severe injuries, but his family members have recently confirmed that the schoolboy has been moved out of the ICU.

Two Members Of The Mendoza Family

Daniela Mendoza, 10, and her 8 year-old sister, Sofia, were killed by Mauricio Garcia. Their mother, Ilda Mendoza, remains in critical condition.

The two sisters are elementary school students at the Wylie Independent School District. Daniela was in fourth grade, while her sister was in second grade.

Christian LaCour

20 year-old Christian LaCour worked as a security guard at Allen Premium Outlets, who died while trying to save lives.

According to City of Allen Police Chief Brian Harvey, he evacuated one individual to safety, and was shot while “courageously remaining to help others”.

Aishwarya Thatikonda

27 year-old Aishwarya Thatikonda moved from Hyderabad, India, to Dallas five years ago to pursue her master’s degree at the Eastern Michigan University, and then worked for the last two years as a Project Engineer at Perfect General Contractors. She was just a few days away from turning 28.

Her friend who was shopping with her that day was injured in the shooting, but is currently in a stable condition in the hospital.

Elio Cumana-Rivas

32 year-old Elio Cumana-Rivas was the final victim to be identified on Monday, 8 May 2023.

Hailing from Venezuela, he worked as a delivery man in Texas to support his family back home.

Fact #3 : Mauricio Garcia Appears To Be A Neo Nazi

It is currently unknown why Mauricio Garcia decided to commit that senseless act of violence, but initial investigation showed that he was a neo-Nazi with mental health issues.

His profile on the Russian social media website, Odnoklassniki / OK.RU, included language praising Hitler, and references to neo-Nazi websites like The Daily Stormer. He posted multiple photos of his tattoos, which include the Nazi swastika and the SS sig runes. He also shared photos of people dressed in Nazi attire, with the caption, “My kind of people”.

Many of his posts also referred to his mental health. When he enlisted in June 2008, the Army quickly discharged him three months later before he could even complete his initial entry training for “mental health reasons”.

He also made a lot of misogynistic posts, complaining about women and making remarks common in the incel (involuntary celibate) community. He also praised the incel gunman who was responsible for the 2014 mass murder spree in Isla Vista, California.

Three weeks before the shooting, he posted more than two dozen photos of the Allen Premium Outlets, including details of the mall’s peak times. On 21 April, he posted a photo of the vest he would eventually wear on the day of the shooting – it had a Right Wing Death Squad (RWDS) patch.

In his final post, he lamented what his family might say about his actions, and wrote that no psychologist would have been able to fix him.

Fact #4 : This Is Shameless Chinese Propaganda

This is yet another example of Chinese propaganda created by the infamous Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) or pro-CCP netizens. Only they are so callous as to abuse a tragedy just to promote their agenda. Shameless. Truly shameless.

All of the wumao articles that I looked at so far have proven to be false… in every instance. So please watch out for such false claims. Here is just the latest dozen,.

Did 9 Countries Issue Travel Warning On US Violence?!

Did nine countries just issue travel warnings against the US because of the rising violence there?!

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

 

Claim : 9 Countries Issued Travel Warning On US Violence!

The Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) and pro-CCP netizens are now promoting articles claiming that nine countries just issued travel warnings against the US because of the rising violence there!

Even Chinese state propaganda outlet Global Times wrote about these new travel warnings of US violence. Here’s an excerpt:

As the conflict between Americans with different political demands becomes increasingly violent, some countries close to the US have expressed concerns about the safety of their citizens in the US, reflecting their growing lack of confidence in Washington’s political system and governance capability.

A CNN report on Sunday observed the rare phenomenon that nine countries – Australia, New Zealand, Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Canada, and Israel – have issued various levels of travel warnings against the US due to increasing violence in the country.

 

Truth : Those Travel Warnings On US Violence Are Not New!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and pro-CCP netizens.

In the following sections, I will share with you what exactly did those nine countries advise, and show you why they are nothing more than common sense advice.

Yes, the US has a gun violence problem, but those nine countries did not advise its citizens against travelling to the US.

Fact #1 : CNN Report Was Not Referring To New Travel Advisories

The CNN report that Global Times and other media outlets referred to was not a “news report”, but a travel article called “What travel warnings do other nations give their citizens about US violence?

Anyone who reads the article would have noted that the writer, Forrest Brown, did not state that these travel advisories were new.

He was writing to show the people of America what other countries think of them, and was not specifically

American travelers — at least those of the cautious variety — might be familiar with the US State Department’s travel advisories.

The agency monitors the world for potential trouble and issues warnings from “Level 1: Exercise Normal Precautions” to “Level 4: Do Not Travel,” alerting would-be visitors to terrorism threats, war, arbitrary enforcement of local laws, high crime rates and other personal security issues.

But have you ever wondered how other countries’ governments caution their citizens about coming to the United States? What kind of reputation does America have?

Fact #2 : Australia Advised Normal Safety Precautions

Australia did not change its travel advisory for the US, which remains at “Exercise normal safety precautions in the United States of America“. Here are its advice with regard to crime:

  • Avoid areas where demonstrations and protests are occurring due to the potential for unrest and violence. Monitor the media for information and updates. Follow the instructions of local authorities, and abide by any curfews in place.
  • Violent crime is more common than in Australia. Gun crime is also prevalent. If you live in the US, learn active shooter drills.
  • Thieves target travellers. Take care in crowded areas and on public transport. Conceal your valuables, and don’t leave items unattended in your car.
  • There is a heightened risk of terrorist attacks in the US. Be alert, particularly in public places and at events.

Fact #3 : Canada Advised Normal Security Precautions

Canada also did not change its travel advisory for the US, which remains at “Take normal security precautions“. Here are its advice with regard to crime:

  • Criminal incidents associated with drug trafficking are more frequent at the border with Mexico, in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas.
  • Petty crime, such as pickpocketing and purse snatching, occurs, particularly in urban centres and tourist locations.
  • Within large urban areas, violent crime more commonly occurs in poor neighbourhoods, particularly from dusk to dawn. It often involves intoxication.
  • Incidents of violent crime are mainly carried out by gangs or members of organized crime groups but may also be perpetrated by lone individuals. Although violent crime rarely affects tourists.
  • The rate of firearm possession in the US is high. It’s legal in many states for US citizens to openly carry firearms in public.
  • Incidences of mass shootings occur, resulting most often in casualties. Although tourists are rarely involved, there is a risk of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Fact #4 : UK Advised Sensible Precautions

UK did not appear to change its travel advisory for crime in the US since 9 June 2022, where it asked people to take “sensible precautions”:

  • Take sensible precautions to protect yourself and your property against petty crime.
  • Violent crime, including gun crime, rarely involves tourists, but you should take care when travelling in unfamiliar areas. Avoid walking through less travelled areas alone, especially at night.
  • Incidents of mass shooting can occur, but account for a very small percentage of homicide deaths.
  • Crime associated with the illegal drugs trade is a major issue in Mexican states bordering Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas.

Fact #5 : Israel Says There Is No Travel Threat

Israel did not change its travel advisory for the US, which remains at Threat Level 01 (No Travel Threat). It only asked that its citizens take “basic precautionary measures”.

Fact #6 : France Calls US Among The Safest Countries To Visit

France did not change its travel advisory for the US. In fact, it called “the United States of America is among the safest countries” to visit.

It does, however, tells its citizens to be wary of gun violence and crimes in very specific locations like :

  • Boston : gun violence and crime in certain localised areas.
  • New York : petty and medium crime, as well as assaults in the subway
  • Washington : ordinary crimes like thefts and assaults at night
  • Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta : certain areas to be avoided at night
  • New Orleans : many cases of pickpocketing and assaults
  • Florida : petty crime in tourist areas

Fact #7 : Germany Did Not Change Its Travel Advisory On US Crime

Germany did not change its travel advisory on US crime recently, only on “entry by land via Canada or Mexico”. It tells its citizens to be wary of gun violence and common crimes:

  • Pickpocketing, muggings and car break-ins occur in many metropolitan areas in the United States, but the danger varies greatly depending on the town and even within a large city depending on the neighborhood.
  • In poorer neighborhoods, risks for travelers increase, especially after dark, as well as in some tourist areas and on public transport. Shop robberies have increased noticeably in some cities in recent months.
  • It is easy to obtain guns in the United States , leading to increased use of firearms and occasional killing sprees. The number of arms and ammunition purchases has increased significantly during the COVID-19 crisis.

Fact #8 : Mexico Does Not Even Have Travel Advisory For US!

Anyone who read the CNN article would have known that Mexico (currently) does not have any travel advisory for the US. The CNN research team had to dig up a May 2021 travel advisory, which stated that:

  • historical racial and ethnic tension, including opposition to immigration, have led to attacks by violent extremist groups
  • citizens are advised to avoid large crowds, and should always carry a copy of their Mexican passport and an official photo ID

Fact #8 : Japan Warns Its Citizens About Gun Crime

As Japan is a gun-free nation, its government warned its citizens visiting the US that “one of the main security concerns in the United States is gun crime“, with advice on how to get out of an active shooter situation:

  • Find security exits in a new place and have an evacuation plan
  • Escape regardless of whether others agree or not
  • Hide in a room and barricade the door using heavy furniture
  • Keep quiet and mute cell phones

Fact #9 : New Zealand Was Worried About Terrorism Threat

New Zealand did not change its travel advisory on US crime for quite a long time, with the threat level remaining at Level 2 of 4 (Exercise increased caution), due to the “threat of terrorism”.

When it comes to crime, it offered the same common sense advice as other countries:

  • Petty crime such as theft and pickpocketing can occur, particularly in urban centres, tourist locations and on public transport.New Zealanders should stay alert to their surroundings, stay vigilant on public transport and avoid leaving belongings unattended, including in rental vehicles.
  • You should avoid crossing the border by car into Mexico from Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. There have been increased incidents of crime associated with drug trading.
  • There is a higher incidence of violent crime and firearm possession than in New Zealand. In many states, it is legal for United States citizens to openly carry firearms in public. However, crime rates vary considerably across cities and suburbs and incidents rarely involve tourists. New Zealanders should take care when travelling in unfamiliar areas.
  • Active shooter incidents occur in the United States.

Ultimately, this is just another example of Chinese propaganda propagated by the infamous Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and pro-CCP netizens.
