OnePlus Promotes Note20 + S Pen, Instead Of Nord 2 5G!
Samsung got a very nice surprise today, when OnePlus India promoted the Galaxy Note20 and its S Pen, instead of their upcoming Nord 2 5G smartphone!
OnePlus India announced today that they are launching the Nord 2 5G smartphone on 22 July 2021, at 7:30 PM IST.
However, earlier today, their team made a hilarious faux pas. Instead of posting a teaser video of the upcoming OnePlus Nord 2 5G smartphone, they posted a video of the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra and its S Pen.
The tweet even said “The enhanced #SPen is my weapon of choice“!
That sure made us laugh! And I’m sure Samsung is very appreciative of how much the OnePlus India team likes their Galaxy Note20 Ultra smartphone and its S Pen. LOL!
Our friend at Vtechgraphy even posted this meme, to which we added an emoji of us laughing!

Thanks For The Laugh, We Won’t Forget About Nord 2 5G!
It has been a really shitty 2020 and an even worse 2021, so we thank you for the laughter. It was sorely needed!
And don’t worry – we won’t forget about the Nord 2 5G. Heck, now even more people will know about it – a win, win for everyone!
As for the person who posted it, OnePlus India promises that no interns or managers were “harmed” in posting that tweet!
Is there a new G64 super spreading COVID-19 strain from India and Egypt?
Find out what’s been said about this G64 super spreader strain, and what the FACTS really are!
Claim : G64 Super Spreader COVID-19 Strain From India + Egypt!
This warning has been spreading on WhatsApp, with a link to a MalaysiaKini report called KL restaurant customer part of new cluster, nine cases report today.
CODE RED WARNING TO ALL MALAYSIAN
Stay away from Mamak shop, nasi bandar and all Indian restaurant hiring Indian workers from India utk sementara waktu, a new covid cluster in KL and potentially spread to the whole country.
Genom G64 covid 19 from india and Egypt are super spreader virus. No appropriate vaccines or treatment for these viruses at least till 2023. Escape strategy for these virus cannot be done at the moment.
G64 COVID-19 Strain From India + Egypt? Bullshit!
The viral warning has actually been circulating since August 2020 and is completely false! Here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : MalaysiaKini Labelled It Fake
Most people do not read beyond the headlines or the message, and the person who created this fake message knows that very well.
He/she intentionally inserted the link to a genuine MalaysiaKini article, to make it look like a genuine warning based on the article.
However, the article does not refer to any particular COVID-19 strain, or referred to any super spreader variant.
It only mentioned that the first two cases in the Maju cluster involved workers at a restaurant, but it is unknown if they are foreigners or locals.
Did a CNN reporter get caught lying on live TV about what a Chinese man really said?
Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the FACTS really are!
CNN Reporter Caught Faking Chinese Translation On TV?
A video clip showing a CNN reporter lying about what a Chinese man said on live TV is going viral, together with this message :
All he said was, “I just finished dinner with friends and want to catch up on my texts.”
If you know Mandarin, you can see how CNN can make up their news.
I can’t believe CNN will go this low.
In the video, the CNN reporter is seen asking a Chinese man why he’s drinking by himself.
The man replied (in Chinese) that he just had dinner with friends and was now, just taking a look at his phone.
But the CNN reporter told the CNN anchor a completely different story,
“Jesus, you can see by the look on his face. This man told me that his family had been taken away, that his brother’s sick, and he can’t get out.”
“And the only thing that’s left to do is drink. And really, I can’t blame him. Poor guy.”
No, The CNN Reporter Was Not Faking Chinese Translation Because…
… the truth is this video was edited, and is being used as Chinese propaganda.
In this video, we will show you why this video is NOT real, and is just another piece of Chinese propaganda.
The viral video clip is really a 29 second segment of a much longer video that runs 4 minutes and 19 seconds.
The original video was created by a UK student living in China, who calls himself Comerad James.
He stated clearly in his original video that he wanted to show how easy it was to make fake news.
Anyone watching his video can see that it was intentionally satirical, with the title CNN Global Bullcast, and his nickname there – Comerad James.
You can even see that both the CNN anchor and the CNN reporter are the same person – Comerad James himself.
And note that he even put in all sorts of Easter eggs – GME (GameStop) share price rising 9999%, and chyrons about public alcoholism spiralling out of control because Chinese citizens are giving up hope.
Comerad James created this video to satirise the “lack of integrity” of CNN and BBC in covering news on China.
Ironically, his video ended up being edited and used by Chinese propagandists to malign CNN’s integrity. So much for “integrity”.
The truth is major news organisations like CNN have fact-checkers and native speakers. Such a broadcast would have been caught very quickly, and they would have apologised for it.
If they didn’t, news of this would spread like wildfire and CNN would have been justifiably castigated online. Not just by Chinese citizens and Sinophiles, but also by other media outlets and the public in general.
On the other hand, Chinese propaganda outlets masquerading as news agencies like CGTN have never apologised or corrected themselves, even after they were caught lying.
A WhatsApp message has gone viral, claiming that Dr Noor Hisham has tendered his resignation!
Take a look at the WhatsApp message, and find out what the facts really are!
Viral Claim : Dr Noor Hisham Has Tendered His Resignation!
This is the WhatsApp message that has gone viral, claiming that Dr Noor Hisham has tendered his resignation!
FINALLY DR NOOR HAS PUT HIS FOOT DOWN. THE DAILY FIGURES FOR COVID 19 ARE BACKLOG FROM LAST YEAR.\ THE REASON BEING THE PRIME MINISTER AND TWO MINISTERS ARE KEEN TO CONTINUE THE RISE TO JUSTIFY THE BLUNTED IN RUNNING THE NATION. THEY WANT TO CONTINUE STAYING IN THEIR POSITION. I AM NOT SURE WHY ALL THE SULTANS ARE KEEPING MUM ON THIS.
THE ACTUAL FIGURE IS LESS THAN 100 DAILY SINCE EARLY JANUARY 2021.
IT IS TIME LIKE THIS THAT EVERYONE USE THEIR COMMON SENSE WHY PASAR MALAM IS ALLOWED TO RUN FROM 4PM TO 10PM AND KINDERGARTEN HAS BEEN ON WHILE THE REST ARE ON MCO.
AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT EXTENSION TO 16TH FEBRUARY 2021, THE MINISTER WENT TO HIS PENTHOUSE TO HAVE A CELEBRATION. ALL 13 OF THEM DID NOT FOLLOW SOCIAL DISTANCING NOR WEAR A MASK.
WHILE A TRIP TO BUY ESSENTIALS GOODS WAS GIVEN SUMMONED.
Villagers fined for trip to Tenom to get essential supplies TODAY ANYONE CAUGHT WILL BE FINE RM10,000 WHILE MINISTERS ARE ABOVE THE LAW.
IT IS TIME LIKE THIS THAT MALAYSIANS WISH SOMETHNG DRASTIC IS DONE TO STOP THE DOUBLE STANDARD.
The Malaysia Ministry of Health and Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah himself has called the post fake news, denying that he tendered his resignation.
We should also point out that the MalaysiaFlipFlop post is factually wrong in a couple of instances :
Fact #1 : Only Some Cases Are From Last Year
While MalaysiaFlipFlop claims that COVID-19 daily figures are from last year, that is only true for a few cases.
On 31 January, 2021, the Director General of Health, Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, said that the recent surge of over 5,000 daily cases was partly due to a backlog, and partly due to targeted screening at work places, and screening of high-risk groups.
Fact #2 : Over 2000 New Daily Cases Since January 2021
COVID 19 -TEST A nurse in Alabama dies directly on the air after taking the Pfizer vaccine for Corona This is clear evidence of the danger of the vaccine, including the toxins and animal genes .. LOOK AT VEDIO CLIP!
Japan’s professor of Physiology & Medicine, Professor Dr Tasuku Honjo, created a sensation in front of the media today by saying that the corona virus is not natural. If it is natural, it wouldn’t have adversely affected entire world like this, as per nature.
日本的生理学和醫學教授本庶佑（Tasuku Honjo）博士 （註一）今天在媒体面前製造了轟動，他说冠狀病毒不是天然的。如果這是自然的，根據性質, 它不會對整個世界造成這樣的負面影響。
Temperature is different in different countries. if it is natural, it would’ve adversely affected only those countries having same temperature as China. Instead, It is spreading in a country like Switzerland, in the same way it is spreading in the desert areas.
Whereas if it were natural, it would have spread in cold places, but died in hot places. I have done 40 years of research on animals and viruses. It is not natural. It is manufactured and the virus is completely artificial.
I have come the conclusion that since USA has all the 5 strains mutating at the same time, and there are millions of infections with some around still not tested. It is obvious, that the the huge number of death lends credibility to the CDC of America ‘s wrong classification of corona virus death in July to December 2019 to Flu diseases.
Also a reported leak and closure of Fort Detrick , and strange Coronavirus death spreading in Italy and Iran in November, even before the Wuhan outbreak , lend credibility to the early outbreak from America. I can now said with confidence USA is the source of the original outbreak.
On 25 April 2020, Mir Monaz Haque, the Editor-In-Chief of Asia Today, posted this variant on his Facebook page (now deleted) without comment, lending further credence to the story :
Japan’s professor of Physiology or Medicine, Professor Dr Tasuku Honjo, created a sensation in front of the media today by saying that the corona virus is not natural.
if it is natural, it wudn’t hv adversely affected entire world like this. bcoz, as per nature, Temperature is different in different countries.
if it is natural, it wud’ve adversely affected only those countries hvg same temperature as China. instead, It is spreading in a country like Switzerland, in the same way it is spreading in the desert areas.
whereas if it were natural, it would hv spread in cold places, but died in hot places. I have done 40 years of research on animals and viruses.
It is not natural. It is manufactured and the virus is completely artificial.

Also a reported leak and closure of Fort Detrick ,and strange Coronavirus death spreading in Italy and Iran in November, even before the Wuhan outbreak , lend credibility to the early outbreak from America. I can now said with confidence USA is the source of the original outbreak.
Fact #3 : Professor Honjo Does Not Work On Viruses
Tasuku Honjo is a professor of Immunology and Genomic Medicine. He has only worked on immunology, not virology.
His 2018 Nobel Prize, in particular, was for his work on stimulating the immune system to attack tumour cells in cancer.
Fact #4 : Tasuku Honjo Issued A Statement Refuting The Claim
Professor Honjo issued this statement through one of his PhD students :
Prof. Honjo never gave any such statement. Each and every sentence of this post is completely false and has no connection with truth.
Prof. Honjo never worked in Wuhan laboratory. He never called there. He did not work on virus origin and functions and other related issues.
All the contents are just concocted and nothing else.
Fact #5 : Tasuku Honjo Said COVID-19 Originated In China
In an interview with Nikkei Asian Review on 10 April 2020, Professor Tasuku Honjo said that COVID-19 originated in China, but also that it will be the first country to recover from it.
However, he never said that it was manufactured or created by China. Originating in a country, is quite different from creating it.
Fact #6 : Multiple Strains Denote A Later Time Line
Viruses mutate and create new strains over time. A novel virus like COVID-19 would start with a single strain and evolve into multiple strains as it spreads globally and mutate over time.
Hence, the very fact that there are five strains in the United States would actually refute it as the source of SARS-CoV-2 – the COVID-19 coronavirus.
In fact, by analysing the genomic changes of these strains, scientists have pretty much concluded that SARS-CoV-2 did indeed originate in China.
Fact #7 : Earliest COVID-19 Death In US Was In February 2020
The CDC did not wrongly diagnose COVID-19 deaths in the US from July to December 2019.
The earliest death from COVID-19 in the US was revised on 22 April 2020, with the diagnosis of three COVID-19 deaths in Santa Clara, California :
a 57 year-old woman on 6 February 2020
a 69 year-old man on 17 February 2020
a 70 year-old man on 6 March 2020
Fact #8 : Fort Detrick Was Closed Because Of Sterilisation Plant Failure
The CDC temporarily shut down the US Army lab at Fort Detrick on 2 August 2019, after finding “biosafety lapses” there.
Conspiracy theorists pounced on that as “evidence” that COVID-19 may have leaked from Fort Detrick, but a quick check would reveal that :
the shutdown was ordered because the lab was no longer able to decontaminate wastewater from its highest security labs.
the lab’s steam sterilisation plant was damaged in a flood in May 2018, and they had been using a chemical decontamination method instead.
no disease-causing materials were found outside authorised areas
if SARS-CoV-2 leaked from Fort Detrick, Maryland would have been the epicentre of the COVID-19 outbreak, not Wuhan.
Fact #9 : SARS-CoV-2 Is Just ONE Of Many Coronaviruses
Conspiracy theorists keep saying that coronavirus deaths were reported long before SARS-CoV-2 appeared in Wuhan.
But the fact of the matter is – SARS-CoV-2 is merely one of many coronaviruses in the world, including SARS and MERS!
The earliest cases of COVID-19 have so far been traced back to Wuhan, China.
Why Would Someone Create This Fake Story?
With China’s aggressive foreign policy moves in recent years, it is not uncommon to see fake pro-China, anti-America stories being created and shared.
Many believe it’s part of a concerted attempt to burnish China’s image overseas, and to drown out negative coverage of China’s controversial Belt and Road Initiative, and their aggressive moves in the South China Sea..
This COVID-19 was made in the US is also part of the narrative China has been trying to push, after US President Donald Trump blamed them for the COVID-19 pandemic.
Whatever the reasons may be, it is our duty as global citizens to stop the proliferation of such fake stories.
Please share this fact check with your friends, so they know the truth!
