Was Xi Jinping Arrested In Sudden Military Coup?!

Was Xi Jinping Arrested In Sudden Military Coup?!

Was Chinese President Xi Jinping just arrested and overthrown by a sudden military coup in China?!

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

 

Claim : Xi Jinping Was Just Arrested In Sudden Military Coup!

The Internet is abuzz with claims that Chinese President Xi Jinping was just arrested and overthrown by a sudden military coup in China.

A video showing a long line of military vehicles went viral, and some websites posted articles like “Chinese President Xi Jinping arrested, what is happening in China?

Xi Jinping has been removed from the post of Chairman of the Chinese Military Commission. After the conclusion of the SCO conference in Uzbekistan, Jin Jinping, who returned to China, was arrested by the country’s army and kept under house arrest.

Military special forces have gathered at Shenyang Military Airport on the orders of Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) General Li Qiaoming. Not only this, a video recording has also been released that the military vehicles of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army started invading Beijing from September 22. 

These military vehicles are lined up for about 80 kilometers from Huanlai to Zhangjiakou near Beijing. The root cause of all this is the removal of Xi Jinping from the leadership of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army by senior and top officials of the Chinese Communist Party.

Even former Indian cabinet minister and BJP leader, Subramaniam Swamy, jumped on the bandwagon, posting:

New rumour to be checked out: Is Xi jingping under house arrest in Beijing ? When Xi was in Samarkand recently, the leaders of the Chinese Communist Party were supposed to have removed Xi from the Party’s in-charge of Army. Then House arrest followed. So goes the rumour.

Truth : Xi Jinping Was Not Arrested In Any Military Coup!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS that started as a rumour, but was used to generate page views for rumour / fake news websites. Here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Started As A Rumour

It started when China Democracy Party Chairman Wanjun Xie 谢万军 posted a video showing a very long convoy of PLA military vehicles heading to Beijing, with this message:

9月22日,中共解放军大部队开往北京。军队的车头在北京怀来,车尾在河北省张家口,行军队伍长达80公里。

On September 22, a large troop of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army left for Beijing. The front of the army was in Huailai, Beijing, and the rear was in Zhangjiakou, Hebei Province. The marching team was 80 kilometers long.

Then Chinese human rights activist, Jennifer Zeng 曾錚 posted the same video, but this time, mentioning the rumour that Xi Jinping was under arrest.

#PLA military vehicles heading to #Beijing on Sep 22. Starting from Huanlai County near Beijing & ending in Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province, entire procession as long as 80 KM. Meanwhile, rumor has it that #XiJinping was under arrest after #CCP seniors removed him as head of PLA

The video, however, does not actually show that the military convoy stretched out for 80 km.

Fact #2 : Jennifer Zeng Admitted Rumour Was Not True

Jennifer Zeng admitted a few hours later that the rumour that Xi Jinping was arrested was not true.

Someone told me that he knows the family of a #CCP admiral, the rumor about Xi’s arrest is not true.

Unfortunately, the rumour had already gone viral by then, and rumour / fake news websites capitalised on it to generate page views for the ad money.

It didn’t help that there were earlier reports of flights in and out of Beijing being cancelled

Fact #3 : Xi Jinping Issued Two Statements The Next Day

While no photos of Xi Jinping were taken on 23 September 2022, he issued two letters on that day – a day after he was supposedly deposed and imprisoned.

While not direct evidence that Xi Jinping is not under some kind of house arrest, both statements still referred to him as the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China.

Xi Jinping is likely still in quarantine, after returning from the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit, which was held in Samarkand, Uzbekistan less than a week ago.

Fact #4 : Sun Lijun Was Sentenced To Death The Next Day

If Xi Jinping was really arrested and overthrown on Thursday, 22 September 2022, the sentencing of Sun Lijun the next day would have at least been postponed, if not cancelled.

On Friday, 23 September 2022, Sun Lijun was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve, that would eventually be commuted to life imprisonment with no possibility of commutation or parole.

Officially, the former Vice Minister of Public Security was found guilty of taking more than 646 million yuan (US$90.6 million) of bribes, manipulating the stock market, and illegally possessing two firearms.

Unofficially, Sun was part of a “political clique” that challenged Xi Jinping’s authority. Xinhua reported that “Sun failed to stay true to the Party’s ideals and faith, displayed “extremely inflated political ambition and very poor political integrity,” issued groundless criticisms of the Party’s policies, and spread political rumours“.

Several members of this political clique, like former Justice Minister Fu Zhenghua and three former police chiefs of Shanghai, Chongqing and Shanxi provinces, also received long jail sentences.

Fact #5 : No Evidence Of Military Coup / Arrest

As much as many people would like to see Xi Jinping experience the pleasures of the Chinese prison system, there is simply NO EVIDENCE of any military coup, or Xi Jinping getting arrested.

If Xi Jinping was arrested in a military coup, the first thing the plotters would have done is publicly reveal that they not only toppled him, they have him in custody.

They would also seize control of major government institutions and the media, to secure power and ensure that Xi loyalists cannot regain power. Martial law would have been declared, with a complete lockdown of Beijing, and the military barricading government buildings.

These are all “noisy” actions that would be clearly visible, not only to the Chinese public but the entire world as well, especially in a time of smartphones and social media.

Yet, there was no mention of anything remotely close to an arrest or a coup of any kind, in any mainstream media or social media, either inside or outside of China.

It may be possible to keep a lid on such a major event in North Korea – the hermit kingdom, but not in China. Not even with the Great Firewall (防火长城).

Did Matthew Rodrigopulle Die From Vaccine / Accident?

Did Global News reporter Matthew Rodrigopulle die suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine, or a car accident?

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

 

Claim : Matthew Rodrigopulle Died From Vaccine / Car Accident!

Right after news broke that 24 year-old Global News reporter Matthew Rodrigopulle died suddenly, people started claiming he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

But ghoul news websites started claiming that he died from a car accident. Here is a selection of social media posts or article titles on his death :

StopTechy : Matthew Rodrigopulle died as a result of an accident.
NewsMixed : Matthew Rodrigopulle died consequently of an accident.
ScandleUSA : Matthew Rodrigopulle died because of an accident.

FULLY VAXXED + BOOSTED 24YO REPORTER MATTHEW RODRIGOPULLE FROM GLOBAL REGINA
one thing in common wake up people!

Global Regina News: En pleure sa collègue annonce le décès de Matthew Rodrigopulle 24ans
Il était vacciné et boosté
Son décès est dû à SADS post-vax dimanche dans sa maison de Regina
Matthew était un idolater et militant de la vaccinations, au point d’offrir sa vie à Pfizer!

Global Regina News: Crying his colleague announces the death of Matthew Rodrigopulle 24ans He was vaccinated and boosted His death was due to SADS post-vax on Sunday at his Regina home Matthew was an idolizer and vaccine activist, to the point of offering his life to Pfizer!

 

Truth : Matthew Rodrigopulle Did NOT Die From Vaccine / Accident!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine, while ghoul news websites try to peddle other causes.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists and ghoul news websites, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Matthew Rodrigopulle Died Of Natural Causes

24 year-old Matthew Rodrigopulle died suddenly of natural causes at his home in Regina on Sunday, September 4, 2022.

So he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine, or a car accident.

This was confirmed in an article by the School of Journalism at his alma mater – the Toronto Metropolitan University, formerly Ryerson University.

Fact #2 : His Family Never Blamed Vaccine For His Death

Matthew Rodrigopulle’s funeral was held in Ajax, Ontario, on September 12, 2022; and his family asked that donations be made in his memory to the charity of your choice.

In that memorial page, Matthew’s family wrote about the impact he had on everyone’s lives, and celebrated his achievements and abilities.

But not once did they blame the COVID-19 vaccine for his death. If his death was caused by COVID-19 vaccination, you can be sure that his family would have said something to that effect, but they notably did not do that.

So anyone who claims that Matthew Rodrigopulle died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

Fact #3 : Matthew Rodrigopulle Was Fully Vaccinated

When news broke that Matthew Rodrigopulle died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists gleefully posted evidence of his COVID-19 vaccination on his last Twitter post.

So yes, Matthew Rodrigopulle was fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, and he strongly encouraged people to wear a face mask and get vaccinated.

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

Matthew Rodrigopulle was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19 a long time ago – on June 4, 2021, He also received his booster dose on December 23, 2021.

In other words, he received all of his doses more than 9 months ago.

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

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

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

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

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

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause SADS

It is possible that Matthew Rodrigopulle may have died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

But that does not mean SADS is caused by COVID-19 vaccines. That would be rather ludicrous as SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

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

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Fact #6 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #8 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

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

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

Did BTS RM Beat Henry Cavill As World’s Most Handsome Man?!

Did RM (Kim Nam-joon) of the Korean boy band BTS beat Henry Cavill as the World’s Most Handsome Man?!

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

 

Claim : BTS RM Beat Henry Cavill As Most Handsome Man!

The Internet just went berserk with the news that Kim Nam-joon beat Henry Cavill as the World’s Most Handsome Man in the TC Candler survey.

Many websites went viral with articles claiming that the BTS band leader (also known as RM) dethroned Henry Cavill for the title. Here is just two examples :

BTS Member Kim Namjoon is now the most handsome man in the world by defeating Henry Cavill, says a survey by TC Candler.

Henry Cavill, was considered the most handsome man in the world. However, BTS leader has taken away the title from him.

The British actor Henry Cavill is undoubtedly the most popular actor presently. He is the number 1 Superman, ran with Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible, is Geralt in The Witcher, and is a contender for the next James Bond.

However, he is still one place behind in the list of the most handsome men in the world. Although he dominated the list for quite a long time, according to netizens Superman doesn’t hold a candle to BTS leader, RM!

According to a recent survey that TC Candler conducted for the most handsome man alive, Kim Namjoon also known as RM raced ahead of him to take the number one spot. Although this is the first time for the Korean pop star, Cavill has been a permanent feature on the list.

BTS RM Did Not Beat Henry Cavill As Most Handsome Man… Yet

The truth is – this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to generate hype for the page views and ad money, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Henry Cavill Was Never Voted World’s Most Handsome Man

As handsome as Witcher star Henry Cavill is, he was never voted World’s Most Handsome Man in any TC Candler annual lists.

In fact, both Henry Cavill and RM (Kim Nam-joon) from BTS were never even in the Top 5 of any TC Candler annual list ever!

So the claim that RM from BTS beat Henry Cavill for the top spot is already wrong.

Fact #2 : Voting Only Takes Place In December

TC Candler only opens voting for the 100 Most Beautiful Faces and 100 Most Handsome Faces in December of every year.

In other words, voting has not even occurred for the 2022 edition of either list, so any claim that RM (Kim Nam-joon) from BTS or Henry Cavill winning the 2022 list is false.

Fact #3 : TC Candler Refuted The Claim

TC Candler issued a statement on August 23, 2022, refuting the claim that Kim Nam-joon beat Henry Cavill as the World’s Most Handsome Man in their survey.

Statement:

For those who haver been asking and spreading the meme… No, we have not released the 2022 Lists yet. We only ever release the Top 100 lists in late December.

As much as we like both RM (Kim Nam-joon) and Henry Cavill, neither of them has ever been crowned the winner or even been in the Top 5.

Nothing has been decided in 2022 and nothing will be until we hold a vote in December.

If you see the meme or the news story floating around social media, please ignore and don’t share.

Thank you — TC Candler

Fact #4 : This Is Just Another Example Of Celebrity Fake News

This is yet another example of fake news created by celebrity blogs to drive traffic and increase page views for ad money.

Kaden Clymer : 6-Foot Blood Clot NOT From Vaccine!

Did high school athlete Kaden Clymer get a career-ending 6 foot long blood clot in his leg from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Kaden Clymer Got 6-Foot Blood Clot From Vaccine!

Anti-vaccination activists, including the Gateway Pundit and Epoch Times websites, are promoting the story about a high school athlete called Kaden Clymer who was forced to end his football career after doctors found a 6 foot long clot in his leg.

They are claiming or suggesting that the super-long blood clot came from COVID-19 vaccines :

Think the stories of “unusual” blood clots is just wild “conspiracy theories”? Most of these examples die, but meet Kaden Clymer, a high school football player who, although his football playing days are over, lived through it

This is a heartbreaking story which begs a very big question. Could you please follow up w/ Kaden & ask him if he received the covid injection, when, which, batch/lot; whether his drs are looking into that & if he has filed a VAERS report? We need brave journalists to ‘go there’

My friend and colleague Meredith McBride, M.D., is a vascular surgeon. In her long and successful career
in medicine she has never seen anything like this before. This is new, Dr. McBride posted on social media.
“This is not normal.”

We know from a new peer-reviewed article that 94 percent of the blood of people who had COVID-19
vaccines and a subsequent illness displayed unusual clotting formations. You can read that science
article here. Or read my Epoch Times article, with Dr. Joe Wang, about that article here.

 

Truth : Kaden Clymer Did Not Get Blood Clot From Vaccine!

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

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : Kaden Clymer Has Inferior Vena Cava Atresia

On August 1, 2022, Kaden Clymer had severe pain in his back and legs. When his father took him to the Toledo Children’s Hospital emergency room, his calves were swollen by about 4 inches.

Doctors confirmed that he had blood clots in both legs, and surgeons later removed about 6 feet of blood clots from both of his legs.

It was then that doctors confirmed that Kaden was suffering from a rare condition called Inferior Vena Cava Atresia (IVCA) – in which there is a complete or partial absence of the inferior vena cava blood vessel.

It is shocking that a vascular surgeon like Dr. Meredith McBride has never heard of IVCA, and actually thinks “this is new“. Dr. McBride would do well to read about this 2015 IVCA case, for example.

Fact #2 : Inferior Vena Cava Atresia Causes Blood Clots

While not directly life-threatening, IVCA greatly increases the risk of developing blood clots that cause intense pain and swelling of the legs. These blood clots can also cause pulmonary embolism, if pieces break off and travel to the lungs.

That is why Kaden Clymer now receives daily injections of blood thinners, as his mother shared:

He gets shots in his stomach every day, twice a day, which is not something fun. I don’t enjoy giving them to him and I know he doesn’t like getting them. Yet, he does it with a smile and we appreciate that. It could’ve been so much worse.

In short, his blood clots had NOTHING to do with the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #3 : Kaden Clymer Was Not Vaccinated + Never Had COVID-19

Kaden’s sister, McKayla, spoke out against those claims, stating that he was never vaccinated against COVID-19, and he never contracted COVID-19.

She also confirmed that Kaden was born without the Inferior Vena Cava (IVC), and that was the cause of his blood clots :

Kaden clymer is my brother. He was never vaccinated or had Covid. You can’t argue with facts. Kaden was born without his ivc vein which caused his bloodclots.

Fact #4 : Gateway Pundit + Epoch Times Spread Fake News

Both the Gateway Pundit and Epoch Times are notorious for creating and spreading FAKE NEWS about COVID-19 and vaccines.

Everything they post should be considered FALSE, until proven otherwise. Here are some of their articles that I debunked in the past :

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #6 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

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

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

Did RCMP Kill Canada Mass Stabbing Suspects?!

Did the RCMP just shoot and kill the two mass stabbing suspects who killed at least 10 people in Canada?!

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

 

Claim : RCMP Killed Canada Mass Stabbing Suspects!

Vancouver Times just posted an article, claiming that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) just shot and killed the two stabbing suspects who killed at least 10 people in Canada!

The two suspects wanted in an ideologically motivated left-wing terrorist attack are now dead, according to sources in the RCMP. Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson were shot after refusing to surrender to the RCMP.

Police suspect that the brothers were involved with violent terrorist group Antifa, finding Antifa flags and communist literature in their vehicle. The shooting occurred on the outskirts of Saskatoon.

RCMP told reporters in a press conference that they found 10 people dead and at least 15 people have been hospitalized. RCMP said they found 13 incident locations in James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon.

Police suspect there may be more injuries than initially reported. RCMP are asking all witnesses and those with video footage to contact police immediately.

Antifa cells have sprung up all across Canada, presenting a danger to Canadian society. Despite mountains of evidence that Antifa is a serious threat, the Trudeau government has remained silent on the matter.

Sources close to the scene believe that the Trudeau government is pressuring the media not to report on the deaths of the suspects, or their links to Antifa.

The mainstream media and big tech want to hide the truth. Beat them at their own game by sharing this article!

Truth : RCMP Did NOT Kill Canada Mass Stabbing Suspects!

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

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

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

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : RCMP Did Not Shoot Either Suspects

RCMP Saskatchewan have identified the two mass stabbing suspects as Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson.

They were believed to be armed, and was last seen travelling in Regina at 12:07 PM on 4 September 2022, in a black Nissan Rogue SUV with the Saskatchewan licence plate number 119 MPI.

On Monday morning, 5 September 2022, Damien Sanderson was found dead in a heavily-grassed area near a house on the James Smith Cree Nation. He had injuries that are not believed to be self-inflicted, but he was not shot by the RCMP.

Two days later, Myles Sanderson stole a white Chevrolet Avalanche truck on Wednesday afternoon. The white truck was then spotted speeding on a highway at 150 km/h.

Police rammed Myles off the road and into a ditch near Rosthern, Saskatchewan at approximately 3:30 PM, and arrested him.

However, he was in “medical distress” when he was arrested, and was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, apparently of “self-inflicted wounds”.

On Wednesday, September 7, 2022, 2:07 p.m., Wakaw RCMP received a 911 report of a break-and-enter in progress in the Wakaw detachment area. Further information provided stated Myles Sanderson was standing outside of a residence, northeast of Wakaw, and was armed with a knife. Sanderson stole a white Chevrolet Avalanche truck with Saskatchewan license plate 953-LPL and fled the property. The homeowner was not injured.

The white Chevy truck was seen by a Rosthern RCMP officer driving in an unmarked vehicle, traveling west along highway 1 toward Rosthern at a speed recorded at 150 km/h. Police confirmed the license plate matched the initial report.

At approximately 3:30 p.m., the suspect vehicle was seen travelling south on Highway 11, south of Rosthern. To ensure the safety of drivers on the highway, the vehicle was directed off the road into a nearby ditch.

Police officers surrounded the vehicle and through verbal identification, confirm the identity of the driver to be Myles Sanderson. He was arrested by police and taken into custody. A knife was located inside the vehicle.

Shortly after his arrest, he went into medical distress. Nearby EMS were called by police to attend the scene and was transported to a hospital in Saskatoon. He was pronounced deceased at the hospital.

Fact #3 : Canada Mass Stabbing Motive Still Unknown

Vancouver Times falsely claimed that the Damien and Myles Sanderson were involved with Antifa, and killed people as part of “an ideologically motivated left-wing terrorist attack“.

The RCMP have not determined their motives for stabbing so many people, stating that :

At this stage in our investigation, we believe some of the victims have been targeted by the suspects and others have been attacked randomly.

At a September 8, 2022 press conference, Saskatchewan RCMP Commanding Officer Rhonda Blackmore said that :

His motivation may at this time — and forever — only be known to Myles.

Fact #4 : Police Did Not Find Antifa / Communist Material

Vancouver Times falsely claimed that the RCMP found Antifa flags and communist literature in their vehicle.

The police have not been able to locate their vehicle, so it is impossible for them to find Antifa flags and communist literature in that vehicle.

He may be in a black Nissan Rogue with SK license plate 119 MPI. It’s unknown if he’s travelling with anyone.

When police arrested Myles Sanderson in a stolen truck, they only found a knife:

He was arrested by police and taken into custody. A knife was located inside the vehicle.

Fact #5 : Antifa Is Neither Communist, Nor An Organisation

Vancouver Times have often falsely labelled Antifa as a left wing and/or communist terrorist organisation, probably to trigger right-wing supporters into sharing their fake news.

Antifa is not communist in nature, but rather – anti-fascist and anti-racist. It is also not an organisation, but a highly-decentralised movement.

Antifa also started as a reaction in the United States to Donald Trump’s election as President. Hence, the movement is limited to the United States, and has no presence in Canada.

Fact #6 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to claim that there is a “media blackout”, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on the shooting and deaths of Damien and Myles Sanderson.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not even the Canadian government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about such a momentous arrest.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single blogger or online website published this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #7 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about the deaths of the two stabbing suspects in Canada.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Did Justin Bieber Wear Balenciaga Bottle Slippers?!

Did Justin Bieber just model the new Balenciaga bottle slippers?!

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

 

Claim : Justin Bieber Wore These Balenciaga Bottle Slippers!

The Internet has gone crazy over photos of Justin Bieber wearing the viral Balenciaga bottle slippers, with comments like these :

Justin Bieber in his Balenciaga ‘bottle slippers’😳🤣🤣🤣

#JustinBieber in bottle slippers, Balenciaga.
Not new in Africa.
Whenever Africa invent her product we laugh at it, now it is in the west let wait and see how it will go viral and Africa will be the first to go in for the same product 😂😂

What did they make Justin Bieber wear? But I like the slippers and thats not how it should be worn.

 

Truth : Justin Bieber Did NOT Wear Those Balenciaga Bottle Slippers!

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

Fact #1 : Balenciaga Bottle Slippers Do NOT Exist

First, let me just state that Balenciaga did not create any bottle slippers.

Despite a viral photo showing that these bottle slippers can be purchased on the Balenciaga website for €895, they do not exist.

Fact #2 : Balenciaga Bottle Slippers Were Created By neondazer

The Balenciaga bottle slippers were just a concept created by a Russian artist / designer called neondazer (Max Arnautov).

He posted the viral photos of Balenciaga bottle slippers, including the edited photo of Justin Bieber wearing them, on his Instagram on August 25, 2022.

Wassup hypebeasts, cop or drop? 😂

Meta-irony and metamodernism are best friends of modern fashion, guys. I guess this concept is meta-ironic towards Balenciaga, which became meta-ironic brand itself thanks to @Demna.

When this idea came to me, I thought: “So f*cking funny! But… I will not be surprised if Balenciaga gonna do something like that for real.”

They released earrings made of laces, destroyed Paris sneakers, a trench shitted by birds.. so this bottle slippers are fitting perfectly! Cuz it’s all about overconsumption and its fruits.

Campaign photo by: @Balenciaga
Model: @justinbieber

Fact #3 : Justin Bieber Photo Was From Balenciaga Fall 2021 Campaign

The Justin Bieber photo that neondazer edited was taken from the Balenciaga Fall 2021 campaign, per GQ.

Taken by photographer Katy Grannan, it featured a clean-shaven Justin Bieber wearing a black leather bomber, scrunchy black sweatpants, white tube socks… and a pair of Balenciaga dad core running sneakers.

neondazer edited out the dadcore running sneakers, and replaced them with his own bottle slippers.

Here is a comparison of the original photo (left) and the edited photo (right). Very nice photo-editing.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Another Example Of Celebrity Fake News

While these photos are arguably satire by an artist, they are being used by many blogs to drive traffic and increase page views for ad money.

Here are examples of other celebrity fake news that we debunked earlier:

Did Elon Musk Call For More Oil + Gas Production?!

Did Tesla CEO Elon Musk just call for more oil and gas, instead of renewable energy?!

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

 

Claim : Elon Musk Is Calling For More Oil + Gas Production!

The worldwide media has gone ga-ga over Elon Musk calling for  oil and gas producers to increase supply at an energy conference in Norway.

This comes after the Tesla CEO asked oil producers to drill for more oil earlier this year, in March.

So the implication is that Musk is reversing his stance on renewable energy. At least, that’s what the headlines suggest:

Wall Street Journal : Elon Musk Says World Needs More Oil and Gas

Wall Street Journal : Elon Musk: Go Nukes and More Oil, Please

CNBC : Elon Musk says world still needs oil and gas

TechSpot : Elon Musk says the world needs more oil, gas and babies

The Times of Israel : Elon Musk, who has fathered 10, says world needs more babies and oil exploration

TheStreet : Elon Musk Calls for More Oil and Gas Drilling to Avert Human Disaster

 

Elon Musk Is Calling For More Oil + Gas… For Now

The press is correct in saying that Elon Musk just called for increased production of oil and gas. However, many of the news reports did not include the full quote.

The full quote is important, because it makes it clear that Musk was not reversing his stance, but merely stating the obvious – it takes time to migrate to renewable energy.

The world is in an energy crisis right now, thanks to the Russian invasion of Ukraine; and it is impossible for renewables to make up for the deficit caused by sanctions on Russian oil and gas.

The full quote of what Elon Musk said at that energy conference in Norway makes that very clear:

I want to thank the leaders and the people of Norway for their long-standing support. I do think we actually need more oil and gas for civilization to function. But simultaneously moving fast to a sustainable energy economy.

He obviously still believes that renewable energy is the future, but that the world will need more oil and gas in the short term due to the invasion of Ukraine.

This is consistent with what he said earlier this year, in March 2022, when he first called for increased oil and gas production:

Hate to say it, but we need to increase oil and gas output immediately. Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures.

Obviously, this would negatively affect Tesla, but sustainable energy solutions simply cannot react instantaneously to make up for Russian oil and gas exports.

Honestly, this is all pretty much common sense. You don’t need to be Elon Musk to understand the urgent need for more oil and gas to replace sanctioned Russian gas and oil.

 

Elon Musk Not Only Called For More Oil + Gas, But Nuclear Power Too

Some of the press went with the nuclear angle, which is also true. Elon Musk did call for more nuclear power, but only in the context of maintaining existing plants that are well-designed.

While nuclear plants are far less polluting. than oil- and gas-fired power plants, they produce nuclear waste that pose long-term storage and security risks.

If you have a well-designed nuclear plant, you should not shut it down — especially right now.

As you can tell – he did not call for more nuclear plants to be built. Just that the world should retain existing plants that are well-designed and working well.

It does not make sense to shut them down in the middle of a massive energy crisis. You really don’t have to be Elon Musk to know that too…

Did Kelantan Palace Ban Malaysia Chief Justice + Husband?!

Did the Kelantan palace ban Malaysia Chief Justice Tengku Maimun and her husband after she ruled to uphold the guilty verdict on former Prime Minister Najib Razak?

Find out what’s going on, and what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Kelantan Palace Banned Malaysia Chief Justice + Her Husband!

An online portal went viral after claiming that Malaysia Chief Justice Tengku Maimun binti Tuan Mat and her husband are both banned from the Kelantan Palace, after she (and four other justices) ruled to uphold the guilty verdict on former Prime Minister Najib Razak.

The online portal also said that even though Chief Justice Tengku Maimun hailed from Kelantan, the Sultan of Kelantan Muhammad V refuses to meet with her or her husband, insinuating that he is displeased with her verdict.

That online portal also claimed that two other persons were similarly blacklisted from the Kelantan Palace, including a politician who is now a government minister.

 

Truth : Kelantan Palace Did Not Ban Malaysia Chief Justice + Her Husband!

This appears to be FAKE NEWS created by that online portal to increase page views by generating controversy, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : There Is No Such Ban, Officially

We do not know how the Sultan of Kelantan feels about former Prime Minister Najib Razak’s guilty verdict being upheld (again).

However, the Kelantan Palace has never announced such a ban, so officially, there is no such ban.

Fact #2 : Kelantan Palace Refuted The Claim As False

On 26 August 2022, the Kelantan Royal Household Comptroller, Datuk Nik Mohd Shafriman Nik Hassan issued an official statement refuting the claim as false.

Here is their official statement in Bahasa Melayu, and our translation in English :

26 Ogos 2022 – Istana Kelantan dengan tegas menyangkal dakwaan sebuah portal yang mengatakan bahawa Ketua Hakim Negara, Yang Amat Arif Tun Tengku Maimun binti Tuan Mat dan suami dilarang ke Istana Kelantan. Kenyataan ini adalah sama sekali tidak benar dan tidak berasas. Tidak pernah ada larangan seperti yang didakwa dikeluarkan oleh Istana Kelantan.

Istana Kelantan memandang serius tohmahan berupa fitnah seperti ini dan menyarankan agar pengamal media merujuk kepada Istana terlebih dahulu mengenai kesahihan apa-apa berita sebelum disiarkan bag mengelak dari mengelirukan masyarakat.

Pihak Istana aka mempertimbangkan untuk mengambil tindakan undang-undang terhadap portal berkenaan sekiranya fitnah tidak berasas ini berlarutan.

26 August 2022 – The Kelantan Palace firmly refutes the claim of a portal that claimed that the Chief Justice, The Most Learned Tun Tengku Maimun binti Tuan Mat and her husband are banned from the Kelantan Palace. This statement is completely untrue and baseless. No such ban as allegedly has been issued by the Kelantan Palace.

The Kelantan Palace takes this kind of slanderous accusation seriously and urges media practitioners to refer to the Palace beforehand on the veracity of any news before publishing to avoid causing public confusion.

The Palace will consider taking legal action against the portal if this baseless slander continues.

Fact #3 : Entry To Kelantan Palace By Invitation Only

The Kelantan Palace is both a royal institution and a private residence, not a public venue. Therefore, there is really no need to institute a ban.

Technically, everyone is “banned” from entering the Kelantan Palace, except for those who are invited in, or allowed to enter on official business.

Even though Chief Justice Tengku Maimun is from Kelantan, she has no reason to go to the Kelantan Palace unless she receives an invitation by the Sultan of Kelantan.

Just like how you only invite people you want to your own home, the Kelantan Palace does not need to ban anyone. It only needs to invite people it wants.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Fake News To Drive Traffic

This is yet another example of fake news created by online blogs and portals to drive traffic and increase page views for ad money.

Here are examples of other “viral” fake news that we debunked earlier:

Indonesia Bans Steam, PayPal, Epic Games + More!

Indonesia just banned a number of major websites including Steam, Epic Games, PayPal and Battle.net!

Here is what you need to know!

 

Indonesia Banned Steam, PayPal, Epic Games + More!

On 30 July 2022, Indonesians woke up to the shocking discovery that a number of gaming platforms like Steam, Epic Games, Origin, Ubisoft and Battle.net are now banned!

Not only were gaming platforms banned, Indonesia also banned major websites and digital services like PayPal and Waze.

Indonesian netizens have started sharing tips on how to bypass this sudden ban – by using VPN, or changing their DNS servers, to bypass what appears to be an IP block.

 

Why Indonesia Banned Steam, PayPal, Epic Games, Etc!

There was no official announcement by the Indonesian government, but it is likely that Indonesia banned Steam, PayPal, Epic Games and a bunch of other websites and digital platforms because they failed to register as an Electronics System Provider / Penyelenggara Sistem Elektronik (PSE).

On November 24, 2020, the Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kominfo) imposed a new regulation calling for all local and international digital services to register with them for cybersecurity and user protection purposes.

Failure to comply with that regulation would subject the digital service to being banned / blocked in Indonesia.

Here is a partial list of major websites, platforms and digital services registered with the Indonesian government, and those that have not been registered, or are known to be blocked.

Those on the unregistered list are likely to be blocked, if not already blocked. Interestingly, Telegram is listed as registered, but is currently inaccessible (blocked) in Indonesia.

On July 15 – just 2 weeks earlier – Kominfo warned that digital service providers will be banned in Indonesia on July 21, 2022 if they refused to register.

The deadline for all PSE registration – both domestic and foreign – was set at July 20, 2022. After that, Kominfo would start banning unregistered apps and services.

At that time, Kominfo reported that many major brands and companies have yet to register with them, like Google (which owns YouTube, Google Drive, Gmail, etc.), Meta (which owns WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook), Twitter, Netflix, PUBG Mobile and Mobile Legends.

Did Interpol Order Arrest Of Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau, Klaus Schwab?!

Did Interpol just issue arrest warrants for Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau and Klaus Schwab?!

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

 

Claim : Interpol Ordered Arrest Of Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau, Klaus Schwab!

Vancouver Times just posted a story claiming that Interpol has issued arrest warrants for Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau and Klaus Schwab for crimes against humanity, and genocide!

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

Arrest warrants issued for Justin Trudeau, Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab

Interpol has issued arrest warrants for several people involved in the “plandemic.”

Justin Trudeau, Bill Gates, and Klaus Schwab all face international arrest warrants for crimes against humanity and genocide. If convicted, they could face the death penalty.

Truth : Interpol Did Not Order Arrest Of Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau Or Klaus Schwab!

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

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

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

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Interpol Did Not Issue Arrest Warrants For Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau, Klaus Schwab

Just in case you are wondering, INTERPOL did not even issue any arrest warrant for Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau or Klaus Schwab.

To convince you that it’s genuine, Vancouver Times linked “international arrest warrants” to the INTERPOL news page.

But if you check the INTERPOL news page, you will realise that they did not announce the “international arrest warrants” for Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau or Klaus Schwab.

Read more : Was Bill Gates Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity?

Fact #3 : INTERPOL Has No Jurisdiction In Any Country

INTERPOL is an international organisation that facilitates police cooperation between different countries.

It acts as a liaison between police organisations, and does NOT have any jurisdiction in any country.

INTERPOL does NOT the power to arrest or charge anyone of any crime in any country around the world.

Investigation, arrest and prosecution of any crime is conducted by the individual country’s police force, not INTERPOL.

Fact #4 : There Is No Death Penalty In The Netherlands

Even if all three of them were arrested and charged with crimes against humanity and genocide at The Hague in the Netherlands, they would not face capital punishment.

The Netherlands abolished the death penalty completely in 1983, with all references removed from Dutch law in 1991.

Regardless of whatever charge anyone may face at The Hague, there is no risk of death by hanging or firing squad upon conviction. That was just bullshit made up by Vancouver Times.

Fact #5 : Bill Gates + Klaus Schwab Were “Arrested” Before

To bait conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake news, Vancouver Times falsely claimed that both Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab were arrested.

They were both falsely claimed to have been arrested last year, by the infamous Conservative Beaver – a fake news website like Vancouver Times.

There are so many similarities between Conservative Beaver and Vancouver Times that it is possible that they were created by the same people.

Fact #6 : Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus Was Not Arrested For Genocide

Vancouver Times made up the fake story that INTERPOL arrested Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus for crimes against humanity.

That never happened. They only created that story to drive traffic to their website, which must not be doing well despite their prolific copying and pasting of other people’s articles.

Read more : Was WHO DG Dr. Tedros Just Arrested By Interpol?!

Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #8 : There Is No Plandemic

To bait anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story, Vancouver Times used their favourite term – plandemic.

There is no such thing as a plandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic was not part of some nefarious scheme to bankrupt the world to bring the West under communism.

More than 2.5 years after the COVID-19 pandemic started, the world isn’t bankrupt, and the West is no closer to becoming communist.

Fact #9 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on INTERPOL issuing arrest warrants against Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau or Klaus Schwab.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the American, Canadian, Swiss and Dutch governments – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about their arrest warrants.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single blogger or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #10 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about INTERPOL’s arrest warrants against Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau and Klaus Schwab.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

Did Four Doctors Die Right After 4th Vaccine Dose?!

Did four Toronto doctors die within a week of getting their 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Four Doctors Died After Getting 4th Vaccine Dose!

Anti-vaccination activists are sharing a Hollywood LA News video and article which claims that four Toronto doctors died within a week of getting their 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Four Canadian Doctors In Toronto Area Died Last Week
[within one week of their 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine]

 

No Evidence Doctors Died After Getting 4th Vaccine Dose!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists to scare people from protecting themselves against COVID-19, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence They Received 4th Vaccine Dose

Hollywood LA News claimed, without evidence, that all four doctors received the 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Their evidence – the province of Ontario started recommending the 2nd booster dose (4th vaccine dose) just before the doctors died.

So what? If the province of Ontario started recommending electric cars a week before the doctors died, does that mean they were killed by electric cars?

The truth is – NO ONE KNOWS if any of the four doctors received the 4th vaccine dose.

Fact #2 : 4th Vaccine Dose Was Not Mandatory In Ontario

The Ontario government only recommended the 4th vaccine dose (2nd booster dose) for specific groups :

  • individuals aged 60 and over
  • First Nation, Inuit and Métis individuals or a non-Indigenous household member aged 18 and over
  • residents of long-term care homes / retirement homes / Elder Care Lodge, or older adult living in other congregate settings providing assisted living / health services
  • moderately to severely-immunocompromised individuals

None of the four Toronto doctors that died were in those recommended groups.

Read more : Will COVID-19 Vaccination Void Your Life Insurance?

Fact #3 : Vaccination Takes Time

Hollywood LA News suggested that all four doctors got their 4th vaccine dose on the first day the Ontario government made it available – on July 14, 2022.

That’s such utter bullshit. Just because the 4th vaccine dose / 2nd booster dose is available on July 14, does not mean everyone who wants one can get it on that day.

It takes time to vaccinate people, which is why you can’t just walk in for your vaccination. You have to book an appointment!

Even if all those four Toronto doctors eagerly booked appointments for their 4th vaccine does, they may not get it so soon. They are not amongst the recommended group, and may have to wait until more vulnerable people are vaccinated first.

Fact #4 : Second Booster Dose Same As Primary Vaccine

Canada offers three booster doses – from Moderna, Pfizer and Novavax (upon request).

The Pfizer and Novavax booster doses have the same dosage as the primary doses, but the Moderna vaccine is offered at half the primary dose.

The first and second booster doses are really the same vaccine as the primary series vaccine, so there is no reason for new adverse effects to develop.

If you experienced no adverse effects with the first two primary doses, there is simply no reason why you should develop new adverse effects with either the first or the second booster doses, if they are of the same vaccine.

Fact #5 : Dr. Paul D. Hannam Died Of Sudden Cardiac Failure

Dr. Paul Davidson Hannam collapsed and died of sudden cardiac failure while he was out for a run. Hollywood LA News suggested that it was impossible for a healthy 50 year-old marathon runner to die on a run.

The truth is – many fit athletes die unexpectedly every year, and the number has been steadily increasing every year.

This chart from the Maron study shows a progressive rise in sudden death reports of 6% per year, from 1980 to 2006.

In fact, the number of sudden deaths in young and fit athletes more than quadrupled from 1980 to 2006!

This debunks the claim that such a rise in sudden death must be due to the COVID-19 vaccine, which obviously did not exist back then.

Read more : Did Hundreds Of Athletes Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects?!

Fact #6 : Dr. Lorne Segall Died Of Lung Cancer

Dr. Lorne E. Segall died after a year-long battle with advanced lung cancer.

So he most definitely did not die from getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #7 : Dr. Stephen McKenzie Was Seriously Ill

According to his office, Dr. Stephen W. McKenzie had been “seriously ill” leading up to his death.

Although the nature of his illness was not disclosed, his office had earlier been permanently closed, so it must have happened earlier and is thus unrelated to the 2nd booster dose.

Fact #8 : Dr. Jakub Sawicki Died From Stomach Cancer

According to his wife, Iris Sawicki, Dr. Jakub Sawicki was diagnosed with Stage 4 gastric cancer in August 2021 – just two weeks after the birth of their son, John-Paul.

Specifically, Dr. Jakub Sawicki had signet ring cell adenocarcinoma (SRCC) – a rare and very aggressive form of stomach cancer. He most certainly did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #9 : North York General Hospital Confirmed Death Unrelated To Vaccine

North York General Hospital issued a statement refuting claims that Dr. Paul Hannam died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

North York General Hospital can confirm that the tragic death of Dr. Paul Hannam was not related to COVID-19 or vaccinations of any kind.

Fact #10 : Trillium Confirmed Doctor Deaths Unrelated To Vaccine

The other three doctors – Dr. Lorne E. Segall, Dr. Stephen W. McKenzie, and Dr. Jakub T. Sawicki – worked for Trillium Health Partners, which put out a statement on Wednesday, 27 July 2022.

The rumour circulating on social media is simply not true. Their passings were not related to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #11 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT can be proven.

Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.

Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.

Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #12 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Is Interpol Investigating Bill Gates For Murder?!

Is Interpol investigating Bill Gates for crimes against humanity, and conspiracy to commit murder?!

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

 

Claim : Interpol Is Investigating Bill Gates For Murder!

Vancouver Times followed up with their Dr. Tedros arrest story, with a story claiming that Interpol is now investigating Bill Gates for crimes against humanity, and conspiracy to commit murder!

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

Bill Gates, billionaire founder of Microsoft, is under investigation for conspiracy to commit murder and crimes against humanity, according to several sources at Interpol. Gates may be sentenced to hanging if he is charged and convicted.

Read more : Was WHO DG Dr. Tedros Just Arrested By Interpol?!

 

Truth : Interpol Is Not Investigating Bill Gates For Murder!

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

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

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

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Interpol Is Not Investigating Bill Gates

Just in case you are wondering, INTERPOL is not investigating Klaus Schwab. And no, Vancouver Times did not score an exclusive interview with INTERPOL agents.

INTERPOL would never discuss an active case with the media, and certainly not a copy + paste website like Vancouver Times.

It’s Vancouver Times’ signature disinformation move – claiming to have exclusive sources. It’s nothing but bullshit.

Read more : Was Bill Gates Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity?

Fact #3 : INTERPOL Has No Jurisdiction In Any Country

INTERPOL is an international organisation that facilitates police cooperation between different countries.

It acts as a liaison between police organisations, and does NOT have any jurisdiction in any country.

INTERPOL does NOT the power to arrest or charge anyone of any crime in any country around the world.

Investigation, arrest and prosecution of any crime is conducted by the individual country’s police force, not INTERPOL.

Fact #4 : Bill Gates + Klaus Schwab Were “Arrested” Before

To bait conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake news, Vancouver Times falsely claimed that both Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab are under investigation, and could soon be arrested.

They were both falsely claimed to have been arrested last year, by the infamous Conservative Beaver – a fake news website like Vancouver Times.

There are so many similarities between Conservative Beaver and Vancouver Times that it is possible that they were created by the same people.

Fact #5 : Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus Was Not Arrested For Genocide

Vancouver Times made up the fake story that INTERPOL arrested Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus for crimes against humanity.

That never happened. They only created that story to drive traffic to their website, which must not be doing well despite their prolific copying and pasting of other people’s articles.

Read more : Was WHO DG Dr. Tedros Just Arrested By Interpol?!

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.

Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #7 : There Is No Plandemic

To bait anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story, Vancouver Times used their favourite term – plandemic.

There is no such thing as a plandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic was not part of some nefarious scheme to bankrupt the world to bring the West under communism.

More than 2.5 years after the COVID-19 pandemic started, the world isn’t bankrupt, and the West is no closer to becoming communist.

Read more : Plandemic 3 To Prove Satan’s Hand In COVID-19 Vaccines!

Fact #8 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on INTERPOL’s investigation of Bill Gates.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the American government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about his arrest.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single blogger or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #8 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about INTERPOL’s (non-existent) investigation of Bill Gates.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Is Interpol Investigating Justin Trudeau For Genocide?!

Is Interpol investigating Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for crimes against humanity, and genocide?!

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

 

Claim : Interpol Is Investigating Justin Trudeau For Genocide!

Vancouver Times followed up with their Dr. Tedros arrest story, with a story claiming that Interpol is now investigating Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for crimes against humanity and genocide!

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

The prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, may be facing charges of crimes against humanity and genocide, according to several members of Interpol. Trudeau faces the death penalty if charged and convicted. Agents from Interpol confirmed these details with the Vancouver Times during an exclusive interview. One agent described the evidence against Trudeau as “overwhelming.”

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

Just in case you are wondering, INTERPOL is not investigating Justin Trudeau. And no, Vancouver Times did not score an exclusive interview with Interpol agents.

INTERPOL would never discuss an active case with the media, and certainly not a copy + paste website like Vancouver Times.

And if Vancouver Times did somehow score an “exclusive interview” with multiple INTERPOL agents, they did not reveal any evidence beyond claiming that it is “overwhelming”.

The only thing overwhelming is the amount of bullshit in their fake news articles, as usual.

Read more : Was Bill Gates arrested for crimes against humanity?!

Fact #3 : INTERPOL Has No Jurisdiction In Any Country

INTERPOL is an international organisation that facilitates police cooperation between different countries.

It acts as a liaison between police organisations, and does NOT have any jurisdiction in any country.

INTERPOL does NOT the power to arrest or charge anyone of any crime in any country around the world.

Investigation, arrest and prosecution of any crime is conducted by the individual country’s police force, not INTERPOL.

Fact #4 : There Is No Death Penalty In Canada

Canada abolished the death penalty for most capital offences in 1976, and the remaining capital offences on September 1, 1999.

So Justin Trudeau most definitely does NOT face the death penalty, regardless of whatever crime he is accused of.

Fact #5 : Bill Gates + Klaus Schwab Arrests Were “Arrested” Before

To bait conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake news, Vancouver Times falsely claimed that both Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab are also under investigation, and could soon be arrested.

They were both falsely claimed to have been arrested last year, by the infamous Conservative Beaver.

There are so many similarities between Conservative Beaver and Vancouver Times that it is possible that they were created by the same people.

Fact #6 : Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus Was Not Arrested For Genocide

Vancouver Times made up the fake story that INTERPOL arrested Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus for crimes against humanity.

That never happened. They only created that story to drive traffic to their website, which must not be doing well despite their prolific copying and pasting of other people’s articles.

Fact #7 : There Is No Vaccine Mandate In Canada

Vancouver Times also used the typical false claim used by anti-vaccination activists that the Canadian government is forcing people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

That’s categorically false – there is no vaccine mandate in Canada. So Justin Trudeau isn’t “under fire” for turning Canada into “a dictatorship”. Neither did he force “millions of Canadians” to get vaccinated.

Read more : Did US Supreme Court just cancel universal vaccination?!

Fact #8 : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Not Experimental

To bait anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story, Vancouver Times used their favourite claim – that COVID-19 vaccines are experimental and dangerous.

COVID-19 vaccines are no longer experimental, after they receive either an emergency use authorisation or full approval from a health authority like the US FDA or EMA.

That only happens if they successfully complete their Phase 3 trials, and undergo a stringent review process. So it is not possible to use an experimental vaccine for mass vaccination.

I should also point out that the Pfizer vaccine received its full FDA approval on 23 August 2021, while the Moderna vaccine received its full FDA Approval on 31 January 2022.

So none of those COVID-19 vaccines are experimental. They have all passed their clinical tests, and have been  fully approved.

Fact #9 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on INTERPOL’s investigation of Justin Trudeau.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the Canadian government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about his arrest.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single blogger or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #10 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about INTERPOL’s (non-existent) investigation of Justin Trudeau.

Was WHO DG Dr. Tedros Just Arrested By Interpol?!

Was WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros just arrested for crimes against humanity?!

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

 

Claim : WHO DG Dr. Tedros Was Just Arrested!

After WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus announced that the monkeypox outbreak was a global emergency, Vancouver Times posted a story claiming that he was soon arrested for crimes against humanity.

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

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the current director of the World Health Organization (WHO) has been arrested by Interpol and is being held in prison for crimes against humanity and genocide. This comes as police agencies across the world have begun targeting politicians, businessmen, and corporate leaders for their role in the “plandemic,” and for pushing unnecessary and deadly vaccines on the human population.

Fact #2 : Dr. Tedros Was Not Arrested

Just to be clear – Dr. Tedros was not arrested, or charged with crimes against humanity, by INTERPOL.

For one thing – Dr. Tedros issued a public statement on World Drowning Prevention Day, one day after Vancouver Times posted their fake story.

You may also note that neither the INTERPOL or any mainstream media announced the arrest, which would have been worldwide news.

Yet, there has been zero coverage, and that’s because it never happened.

Fact #3 : INTERPOL Has No Jurisdiction In Any Country

INTERPOL is an international organisation that facilitates police cooperation between different countries.

It acts as a liaison between police organisations, and does NOT have any jurisdiction in any country.

Just in case there is any confusion, INTERPOL does NOT have agents with the power to arrest anyone in any country around the world.

Fact #4 : Bill Gates + Klaus Schwab Arrests Were False

To bait conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake news, Vancouver Times falsely claimed that both Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab are under investigation, and could soon be arrested.

They were both falsely claimed to have been arrested last year, by the infamous Conservative Beaver.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.

Did US Send 7000 Insects To Destroy Crops In China?!

Did the US try to send 7,000 insects into China to destroy their crops?!

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

 

Claim : US Sent 7,000 Insects To Destroy Crops In China!

People are sharing a video of a Chinese news report about Chinese custom official discovering 66 containers of some 7,000 insects in a parcel shipped from the US.

They allege that this is evidence of American sabotage – that the US sent those insects to destroy crops in China. The video is often shared with this message :

China customs found 7000 insects sent from the USA. Out to destroy crops in China.

An evil country on the way down trying to pull others down too with sickening and rather despicable tactics !
🤬🤬🤬

In addition to claiming that these insects are dangerous to crops, some pro-CCP or Chinese-sponsored websites are promoting the claim that these insects had their genes edited to become “more infectious”, like a “super mosquito”.

They also point out that each of these insects can reproduce every 10 days, laying 400 eggs in their lifetime to quickly produce a swarm that will destroy fruits in China, by corrupting them with bacteria and fungi.

 

Truth : US Did Not Send 7,000 Insects To Destroy Crops In China!

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

Fact #1 : The Incident Happened In July 2022

First, let us establish what we know about this case.

Sometime in early July 2022, Qingdao customs officers examined a package sent from the United States. Its declaration form claimed that the parcel contained clothes.

When they opened it up, they found two pieces of clothes inside, with 66 sealed tubes containing eggs, larvae, pupae and adult insects.

After analysing them, Qingdao custom officers estimated that the 66 tubes contained roughly 7,000 fruit flies, specifically of the species Drosophila melanogaster.

Fact #2 : Drosophila megalogaster Is Present Worldwide

Drosophila melanogaster is known as the common fruit fly, which is commonly present across the world. Yes, this fruit fly is already present in China.

Despite originating in Africa – it is now present on all continents across the world, including islands.

Fact #3 : Drosophila megalogaster Can Lay Up To 2,000 Eggs

The Chinese media promoting this story can’t even get their facts right, claiming that these fruit flies lay up to 400 eggs in their lifetime.

Drosophila melanogaster females are far more productive than that – they can lay up to 100 eggs a day, and up to 2,000 eggs in a lifetime.

Fact #4 : Drosophila megalogaster Do Not Cause Fruits To Rot

Drosophila melanogaster is not an economic pest, even though no one welcomes them in their home.

It is often confused with Tephritidae – a different family of insects that are also called fruit flies, some of which are economic pests that destroy fruits.

Unlike Tephritidae fruit flies, Drosophila melanogaster do not destroy fruits. They are attracted to fruit that is already rotting, but do not cause fruits to rot.

The claims that the US sent Drosophila melanogaster fruit flies to destroy crops in China is nonsense.

Fact #5 : Drosophila megalogaster Is Commonly Used For Research

Drosophila melanogaster fruit flies are very popular in scientific research, for many reasons :

  • they are easy and cheap to care for, requiring little equipment and space
  • they have a rapid life cycle of 10 days, allowing several generations to be studied in a few weeks
  • each female can produce many offspring, laying up to 2,000 eggs in its lifetime
  • they have simple genetics, with only four pairs of chromosomes
  • their genome was completely sequenced and published in the year 2000

Scientists do not mention this as a reason for using Drosophila melanogaster, but I think it is important to note that it is not a pest, so accidental release of these fruit flies would not pose any danger of any form or kind.

Fact #6 : Drosophila megalogaster Is Commonly Shipped Worldwide

Because it is a model organism for research, Drosophila melanogaster is bred and shipped internationally to researchers worldwide.

The College of Agriculture and Life Science at Cornell University, for example, breeds and sells Drosophila melanogaster fruit flies, which they ship internationally including China.

Fact #7 : 2021 Seized Shipment Was Meant For Chinese Research Institute

This wasn’t the first time China seized live Drosophila melanogaster fruit flies in such tubes.

In June 2021, Chinese custom officials found 58 tubes containing more than 1,000 of these fruit flies in an imported parcel addressed to a Chinese research institute.

They seized the parcel because its contents were not declared, and it lacked an import permit.

Fact #8 : China Requires Quarantine For Live Insects

China forbids live insects from being mailed or carried into the country, without special quarantine or approval.

However, quarantine is a problem for Drosophila melanogaster because it has such a short lifespan of just 50 days.

Hence, it is possible that Chinese researchers are trying to circumvent the quarantine by importing live Drosophila melanogaster fruit flies, without an import permit which would require quarantine.

It is also possible that these fruit flies are being imported as a live food source for their pet fish, frogs and other animals.

Fact #9 : Cornell University Warned About Chinese Import Permit

Cornell University specifically warned Chinese researchers trying to purchase these fruit flies that :

As of November 1, 2014, we can only offer free replacements for shipments of live flies to China that were accompanied by an import permit.

That suggests that they lost shipments to China in the past, because they lacked import permits.

Fact #10 : This Is Chinese Propaganda

This is really nothing more than yet another example of Chinese propaganda created by the infamous Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛).

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

Did China Edit Out Thor Insulting Chinese Military?!

Did China order Marvel to edit out insults of Chinese military capabilities in the movie Thor: Love and Thunder?!

Find out what’s going on, and what the facts really are!

 

Claim : China Edited Out Thor Insulting Chinese Military!

Some people, and an Indian website, are sharing an article about China ordering Marvel to edit out insults of Chinese military capabilities in the movie Thor: Love and Thunder?!

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

The Chinese government said in a statement on July 2 that they had to edit Marvel’s newest blockbuster Thor: Love and Thunder themselves to suppress Thor’s lengthy, well-spoken monologue about why the United States shouldn’t be afraid of China’s powerless military.

“China is a feeble country that cannot support its people,” During an unrelated fight scene, Thor tells Korg. “They are weak-willed, sluggish people that the United States can easily trounce in combat. The only reason the U.S. allows them to live is out of pity and sorrow. China is a worthless, flaccid military regime that has poor and pathetic rulers asleep at the wheel. Communism does not work. Let’s go fight some more space pirates,” he added.

On why the speech was initially included, director Taika Waititi went into further detail.

“Marvel usually asks us to shoehorn in something for Chinese audiences,” Waititi said. “I thought it would be a fun wink to Chinese Thor fans if the Asgardian warrior stopped dead in his tracks, faced the camera, and broke down how China poses no threat to the United Nations and that their military is an empty threat that could easily be quashed. It’s Easter eggs like that that get the audience really feeling seen by your film.”

Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, voiced his bewilderment on China’s editing of the film.

“I’ll never understand why China makes seemingly nonsensical edits,” Feige said. “It’s just a fantasy movie about vikings, super heroes, and how China’s current missile silos couldn’t reach the West if they tried. I’ll never know why they take it so seriously, but whatever.”

Marvel revealed that China would also be removing a funny post-credits scene wherein Thor flies to Xi Jinping’s private mansion and chokes him on live television.

 

Truth : China Did Not Edit Out Thor Insulting Chinese Military

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created as “satire” to go viral, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : There Is No Chinese Military Monologue In Thor: Love and Thunder

First, let’s start with the fact that there is no 20-minute monologue about the Chinese military in the movie, Thor: Love and Thunder.

Can you really, REALLY imagine Thor speaking for TWENTY MINUTES about the Chinese military in the movie? Whatever for???

Fact #2 : China Was Never Mentioned In Thor: Love And Thunder

China, and the Chinese military, were never mentioned in the movie, Thor: Love and Thunder.

Fact #3 : Thor: Love And Thunder Post Credit Scene Not About Xi Jinping

Thor obviously did not fly to Chinese President Xi Jinping’s private mansion to choke him on live television. There is no reference to any Chinese person in the entire movie.

In the mid-credits scene, a recuperating Zeus sends his son Hercules to kill Thor. In the post-credits scene, Foster arrives at the gates of Valhalla, where she is welcomed by Heimdall.

Read more : Why Thor: Love and Thunder Is Likely Banned In China!

Fact #4 : Thor: Love And Thunder Still Not Approved In China

Thor: Love and Thunder was never approved in China, and will remained banned because of LGBTQ+ themes in the movie.

Fact #5 : It Is Up To Disney To Edit The Movie

The Chinese government may require edits for a movie to be approved for screening in China, but it is ultimately up to the distributor to comply with the requests, or reject them.

In this case, the Chinese government may request for the LGBTQ+ scenes to be edited out of Thor: Love and Thunder; but it is up to Disney to either comply with their requests, or reject them.

Rejecting the edits will naturally prevent the movie from receiving screening approval, but it is still Disney’s choice, not the Chinese government.

Fact #6 : It Was Just Satire

I traced the origin of this fake story to Hard-Drive – a satire website.

Even though there are no disclaimers on the entire website, or the article itself; their website appears to consist entirely of satirical content, and the article itself is clearly satirical.

However, it appears that some people actually thought that the story was genuine and reposted it on social media.

Times Now, which is part of the Times Group in India, even reposted the story on their online news portal, as if it’s genuine news!

Did Danielle Hampson Die In Car Accident On Wedding Day?!

Did Danielle Hampson die from a car accident on her wedding day with X Factor star, Tom Mann?!

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

 

Claim : Danielle Hampson Died In Car Accident On Wedding Day!

A number of rumour / fake news websites have been capitalising on Danielle Hampson’s tragic death on the day of her wedding to X Factor star, Tom Mann.

They are claiming that she died from a car accident, and many even created videos that purportedly show the CCTV footage of the car accident that killed her. Here are a few examples.

Bareillyinfo / BareillyCollege : How did Danielle Hampson die? Cause of death explained

After the news came out everyone is intrigued to know the cause of her death. A car accident took the life of Danielle Hampson (confirmed).

Everyone is curious to know the circumstances behind her passing once the news broke that Danielle Hampson died in a motor vehicle collision.

Daniella Hampson’s Car Accident on 18 June 2022, happened exactly on her wedding day. Danielle Hampson died in an accident, a source revealed.

UpToBrain : Danielle Hampson Car Accident Death CCTV Footage Video and Images Leaked on Twitter, YouTube

 

There Is No Evidence Danielle Hampson Died In A Car Accident!

This is another example of FAKE NEWS that some websites create for more page views and money, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Danielle Hampson’s Cause Of Death Was Never Revealed!

No one has publicly revealed Danielle Hampson’s cause of death. Not her fiancee, Tom Mann. Not her colleagues. Not even her own family.

That does not mean people get to make up stories, and claim that she died from COVID-19 vaccines, or a car accident.

When her family or her fiancee reveals how she died, we will know. Until then, don’t waste your time on websites and blogs that create celebrity fake news to get more traffic.

Fact #2 : CCTV Videos Of Danielle Hampson’s Car Accident Are Fake

A number of these websites created fake YouTube videos about Danielle Hampson’s car accident, claiming to be leaked CCTV footage.

None of them contain any CCTV footage. They only used edited screenshots from random car accidents as the video title screen to get you to click on the videos.

That’s because they are all monetising these fake videos on YouTube, which apparently have no problem with such fake videos. One website – UpToBrain – created at least four videos with screenshots from four different car accidents.

Take a look at just six of the many videos that claim to show Danielle Hampson’s car accident. So many different car accidents in different countries. Which is the real one? LOL

To be clear – there is no CCTV footage of any car accident involving Danielle Hampson.

Fact #3 : None Of Them Offered Any Evidence

Even if we ignore the fact that Danielle Hampson’s family and fiancee never said publicly how she died, there is currently no evidence that she was killed in a car accident (or vaccines).

None of those websites claiming that she died in a car accident offered anything remotely close to “evidence”. Only one – Vimbuzz (which creates a ton of celebrity nonsense articles) – dared to claim that “a source” told them.

Despite extensive coverage by mainstream media, including People, the Guardian and The Daily Mail, they all continue to point out that her cause of death remains unknown.

Even TMZ, which managed to get Betty White’s autopsy report, has not been able to find out how Danielle Hampson died.

Now, it is plausible that she may have died in a car accident, but she could have easily died from a thousand other causes – from a stroke to a sudden cardiac arrest, which are arguably far more likely.

Until we know for certain – we cannot simply jump to conclusions… or fall for the fake news / fake videos created by people whose only motivation is to make money from your views and clicks.

Fact Check : The Argentinian Egg Boycott Story

Find out if the viral Argentinian egg boycott really happened, reducing the price of eggs to a quarter of its original price!

 

Claim : Argentinian People Reduced Egg Prices Through Boycott!

The story of the Argentinian egg boycott has gone viral, as an example of how the common people can force businesses to reduce their exorbitant prices.

There are a few examples of this story circulating on WhatsApp and social media, but here is one example.

Note : The story is rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Egg Carton

This is a true story, not a fiction. It happened in Argentina.

An Argentine citizen went to buy an egg carton. When he asked the seller about the price, he found that the price was above the usual price. After he asked the seller about the reason, the seller said, “The distributed companies have raised the price!”

Quietly, the citizen returned the egg carton back to its place, saying, “There is no need for eggs. I can live without eating eggs.” Also, all citizens did this without campaigns or strikes, but it was a people’s culture! People who did not accept blackmail by companies .. In your opinion, how were the results? !!!

 

Truth : There Never Was An Argentinian Egg Boycott!

Despite claiming that this is a true story, this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : There Never Was Any Egg Boycott In Argentina!

First, I should point out that there was never any egg boycott in Argentina that caused egg companies to cut prices to a quarter of its previous price.

Neither did any egg company apologise to the Argentinian people. Look it up yourself. It never happened. The story was completely fabricated.

Fact #2 : This Story Has Been Circulating Since 2015

This fake story has been circulating since at least August 2015, when it was posted on an Arabic website with the title of Union – the story of the Argentine people.

Since then, it has been repeatedly shared on social media – Facebook, Twitter, as well as on WhatsApp.

Fact #3 : Argentina Hit By High Inflation Since 2002

Argentina has been suffering from high inflation since 2022, which got worse from 2014 onwards – going from 10.5% to 58% in April 2022!

Whatever boycotts the Argentinian people may have organised would not have mattered.

Fact #4 : An Egg Boycott Would Never Work

The whole premise of an egg boycott is also ridiculous. Egg prices increase due to escalating costs, as well as supply and demand changes.

If poultry farmers do not make enough money from eggs, they will simply reduce their egg-producing flock, and focus on producing chicken meat instead. When that happens, supply is reduced and prices go up, not down.

A complete consumer boycott of eggs would not collapse the market, because eggs are widely used in the bakery and confectionery trades.

Eggs also have important biotechnology, and other industrial uses. For example, it is used to produce many vaccines, like the annual flu vaccine.

Eggs can also be turned into powdered egg, or even exported. In fact, about $4 billion worth of eggs were exported worldwide in 2020.

Hypothetically, if the Argentinians really boycotted eggs completely, it would result in a short-term reduction in price due to increased supply in the market. However, some chicken farms will collapse, reducing supply and causing prices to spike when consumers start buying eggs again.

Fact #5 : Egg Margins Are Very Thin

According to Poultry World, egg producers in the US generate a margin of just 11.2 cents per dozen eggs at the farm level. That’s less than 1 cent per egg!

So how would it be possible for any egg distributer to sell eggs at a quarter of the original price? It does not even make common sense, never mind financial sense!

I hope you found this fact check useful. Please help to share it out, so people won’t get fooled by this stupid story again.

CIMB Online Services Up Again, After Going Down For Hours!

CIMB online and mobile banking services are finally up after failing for most of the day! Here is what you need to know!

 

CIMB Online + Mobile Services Down Most Of The Day!

At around 10 AM on Friday, July 1, 2022, CIMB started experiencing issues with their online and mobile banking services.

Some users could not load the CIMB Clicks website completely, while many users complained that they could log in, but were unable to complete any online transactions, like :

  • Interbank GIRO (IBG)
  • Instant transfers
  • DuitNow transfers

Instead, they received error messages like :

Sorry, service is temporarily unavailable. We apologise for the inconvenience caused. [CLK00495]

We’ve encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later. [CLK00507]

[/su_note]

Please enter valid Email or Mobile Number. [CLK00494]

 

CIMB Online Services Up Again, After Going Down For Hours!

This system-wide issue is not only affecting their online banking portals – CIMB Clicks and CIMB BizChannel, but also their Clicks mobile app.

At 4:37 PM, CIMB announced that Interbank GIRO (IBG) transfers were back online, but not DuitNow transfers.

Please be informed that DuitNow To Account (Instant Transfer) is unavailable at the moment. As an alternative, you may perform transaction by using Normal Transfer (IBG). Thank you.

At 5:22 PM, CIMB announced that they resolved their DuitNow services, although many of their BizChannel customers complained that they are still not able to view their statements, or make online transfers.

Their social media team is asking BizChannel users still experiencing problems to contact the BizChannel team at 1300 888 828 or +603 2297 3000 for further assistance.

CIMB ATM and counter services were not affected by this issue, so you can still head over to a nearby CIMB ATM if you need to withdraw money.

Did Ghislaine Maxwell Just Commit Suicide In Prison?!

Did socialite Ghislaine Maxwell just commit suicide in jail, a few hours after she was sentenced to 20 years in prison?!

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

 

Claim : Ghislaine Maxwell Just Committed Suicide In Prison!

Within hours of news breaking that Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking, Vancouver Times posted a story claiming that she just committed suicide!

Ghislaine Maxwell was found hanging in her cell hours after she was sentenced to 20 years in jail, according to sources at the detention center she was staying at. Similar to Jeffrey Epstein, the guards have stated that cameras were not working at her time of death.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the child raping socialite who once consorted with elite figures, was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison for helping the financier Jeffrey Epstein abuse and torture underage girls.

Activists are cheering on Maxwell’s death, stating that they are happy that Maxwell is no longer on this planet, but dismayed she didn’t spend more time in jail.

Her partner in crime, Jeffrey Epstein, killed himself in 2019 while awaiting trial. Epstein, along with Maxwell, sexually abused children hundreds of times over more than a decade, exploiting vulnerable girls as young as 14. Prosecutors said Maxwell gave him the help he needed to make it happen.

When Maxwell was found hanging in her cell, prison medics were unable to revive her. She was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead on arrival.

The mainstream media and big tech want to hide the truth. Beat them at their own game by sharing this article!

 

Truth : Ghislaine Maxwell Did Not Commit Suicide In Prison!

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

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

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

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Ghislaine Maxwell Did Not Commit Suicide

There is no evidence Ghislaine Maxwell committed suicide in prison.

For one thing – the US Bureau of Prisons would have to publicly announce her death, if not the circumstances of her death.

You may also note that no mainstream media, not even celebrity blogs, have reported on her death, never mind suicide by hanging.

It would have been worldwide news, and yet there has been zero coverage, because it never happened.

Fact #3 : Ghislaine Maxwell Was Not Suicidal

A psychologist evaluated Ghislaine Maxwell on Saturday morning, June 25, 2022, and determined that she is not suicidal.

The evaluation was ordered because her attorney claimed that she was unable to properly prepare for her sentencing.

Fact #4 : Ghislaine Maxwell Was On Suicide Watch

Ghislaine Maxwell was placed under suicide watch prior to her sentencing, even though she was deemed not to be suicidal.

She was removed from the general population at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center, together with her normal clothing; and given a “suicide smock” to wear in supervised solitary confinement.

Fact #5 : Her 20-Year Sentence Was Expected

Prosecutors have asked for Ghislaine Maxwell to receive between 30 and 55 years in jail, after her conviction last year, while the probation department recommended 20 years.

Judge Alison Nathan herself calculated that the sentencing guidelines called for about 15½ to 19½ years in prison.

Her final sentence of 20 years was in the ballpark of what was expected. Even though it was slightly higher than what the judge calculated, it is much lower than what the prosecution asked for.

So there is really no reason for her to commit suicide. It was not like the judge issued a harsher than expected jail sentence.

Fact #6 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on Ghislaine Maxwell’s suicide.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the US government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about her suicide.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media in the US refused to run the story, it would have been reported by the celebrity websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single celebrity blogger or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #6 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about Ghislaine Maxwell’s suicide.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Cloudflare Went Down, Knocking Many Websites Offline!

Many websites were knocked offline today, after Cloudflare suffered a major outage and went down!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Cloudflare Went Down, Knocking Many Websites Offline!

At around 6:30 AM UTC, Cloudflare – the popular content delivery network (CDN) went down, knocking large parts of the Internet offline.

This is ironic, because many websites rely on Cloudflare to not only speed up page loading for their users, but also to mitigate or prevent downtimes from DDoS attacks and server failures.

Cloudflare declared it a critical P0 incident at around 6:34 AM, noting that “connectivity has been disrupted in broad regions“. Instead of loading, all affected websites would show a 500 Internal Server Error message.

Tech ARP was affected, and so were many popular websites and online services like Discord, Omegle, Medium, Feedly, Epic Games, etc.

 

Cloudflare Now Up, After Down For An Hour!

They finally identified the issue about 23 minutes later. The fix took another 23 minutes, but by 7 AM UTC, they restored connectivity.

After monitoring for about an hour, the Cloudflare team declared the P0 critical incident “resolved”0 at 8:06 AM UTC.

Cloudflare has not revealed what caused the outage, but right now, most people are just glad that they resolved in within an hour!

Fact Check : Did Gwen Casten Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did Gwen Casten – the 17 year-old daughter of US Representative Sean Casten, die from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claim by tech millionaire Steve Kirsch, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Steve Kirsch : Gwen Casten Died Of COVID-19 Vaccine!

Tech millionaire Steve Kirsch is back with yet another COVID-19 vaccine conspiracy, after claiming that the vaccine caused Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis!

This time, he claims that Gwen Casten – the 17 year-old daughter of US Representative Sean Casten, died from the COVID-19 vaccine!

His article is extremely long-winded as usual, so let me just share with you part of his summary. But I recommend you just skip to the next section for the facts.

US Congressman Sean Casten’s 17-year-old daughter Gwen Casten died in her sleep on June 12, 2022.

Healthy young kids rarely died in their sleep before the COVID vaccine rolled out.

I don’t know of a single doctor who has even heard of this happening prior to the COVID vaccines rolling out. Now it is the “new normal.”

 

There Is No Evidence Gwen Casten Died Of COVID-19 Vaccine!

As usual, Steve Kirsch jumps to conclusion that the COVID-19 vaccine killed Gwen Casten, based on ZERO EVIDENCE.

Despite writing such a long article, he offered NO EVIDENCE that Gwen Casten died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Did Gwen’s father say so? Nope!
  • Did Gwen Casten’s autopsy report say so? Nope!
  • Did anyone reveal Gwen Casten’s cause of death? Nope!

Now, I will go through the key conjectures he made, and show you why they are literally… bullshit.

Claim : Healthy kids do not die in their sleep unexpectedly for no reason.
Verdict : False
Fact : Children who appear perfectly healthy can and do die for no known reason.
Fact : Such unexplained deaths in children are common enough that there is a term for it – Sudden Unexplained Death In Childhood (SUDC / SUDIC).
Fact : In 2018 alone, the US CDC reported that 392 children died suddenly without a clear cause of death in the United States.
Fact : Nearly all children with SUDC were sleeping before becoming unresponsive, and were in state of usual good health.
Fact : SUDC is most prevalent in toddlers (1-4 years old) and children in their late teens (15-19 years old).

Claim : The COVID vaccine is the most likely cause for any child who has been vaccinated with the COVID vaccine and later dies in their sleep.
Claim : Before COVID vaccines started rolling out, healthy kids dying in their sleep was never an issue.
Verdict : Both False
Fact : Gwen Casten’s cause of death is currently unknown. Unknown means it’s not yet known. It doesn’t mean she died from the vaccine.
Fact :
 The United States alone reported approximately 400 cases of SUDC every single year, before COVID-19 vaccines were invented or administered.
Fact : SUDC statistics for England and Wales from 2011 to 2020 showed NO INCREASE in SUDC cases, clearly demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SUDC.

Claim : Six young people died in their sleep right after vaccinations, so Gwen Casten must have died from vaccine.
Verdict : Unverified + Irrelevant
Fact :
The examples Steve Kirsch provided are either anecdotal, or have not been proven to be caused by COVID-19 vaccines.
Fact : Death from vaccine side effects can be proven. Vaccine-induced myocarditis, for example, has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis.
Fact : Gwen Casten first received her COVID-19 vaccinations in May 2021, and likely received her second dose in June 2021, followed by her booster dose in November 2021. So she died 6-7 months after her last vaccination.
Fact : Vaccine side effects occur in the first 2-3 days. Even adverse effects like myocarditis and VITT occur within days of receiving the vaccine.

Claim : Mysterious deaths do not happen to the unvaccinated.
Claim : Mysterious deaths never happened before COVID vaccines were rolled out.
Verdict : Both False
Fact :
Sudden unexplained death in children (SUDC) occurs at a rate of 0.7 per 100,000 every single year. In other words – over 50,000 children die every year for unknown reasons, in their sleep, even though they are in good health, long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Claim : Mysterious deaths usually happen very shortly after the COVID shot.
Verdict : False
Fact : Gwen Casten died 6-7 months after her last vaccination, so by Steve Kirsch’s own definition, her death had nothing to do with COVID vaccines.
Fact : Mysterious deaths have occurred in children before and after COVID vaccination… and long before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

Where + How To Renew Driving Licence In Malaysia!

Find out where and how you to renew your driving licence in Malaysia!

 

Why You Need To Renew Your Driving Licence ASAP

The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has discovered that hundreds of thousands of people are driving with expired licences.

They recently reminded motorists that the moratorium on expired driving licences will end on 30 June 2022.

Right now, those that JPJ caught were “only” been slapped with a fine. But after 30 June 2022, they will be issued with a summon and their licences may be revoked.

These are the four categories of expired licences that may be revoked, if they are not renewed in time :

  • Learner’s Driving Licence (LDL) : Up to 2 years
  • Probational Driving Licence (PDL) : More than 1 year
  • Competent Driving Licence (CDL) : More than 3 years
  • Public Service Vehicle / Goods Driving Licence (PSV / GDL) : More than 3 years

If your licence is revoked, you will need to undergo the full process to re-qualify and obtain a new licence.

Recommended : JPJ : Renew Driving Licence Or Retake Full Driving Test!

 

Fine For Driving Without A Valid Licence In Malaysia

If you are caught driving without a valid licence, you will be fined based on how long your licence has expired.

How Long Your Licence Has Expired Delivery Fee
1-15 Days RM 150
16-30 Days RM 200
31-60 Days RM 300

But as noted earlier, if you do not renew your licence for more than 3 years, you will not only be fined, you will be required to take the driving exam again.

Even worse, you will have to submit an eRayuan letter to obtain a learner’s licence (LDL) which costs RM30, and after passing the exam, you be issued a probationary licence (PDL) for 2 years.

 

How To Check Your Licence Expiry Date In Malaysia

Did you know you can check your driving licence expiry date, even if you are overseas? Here is what you need to do :

  1. Go to the official JPJ Licence Expiry Date enquiry page.
  2. Select your identification type

    – Non Malaysia (LLN)
  3. Key in your Identification Number (without dash)
  4. Key in the CAPTCHA security code – the 4-digit number in the image.
  5. Click Search.

You should get a report like this, which shows you when your driving licence was last renewed, and when it will expire.

Why Steve Kirsch Is 100% Wrong On Justin Bieber’s Paralysis!

Tech millionaire Steve Kirsch claims he is 99% certain that Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine. Find out why he is 100% wrong!

Updated @ 2022-06-13 : Addressed Steve Kirsch’s new claims.

Steve Kirsch Is 99% Certain Justin Bieber’s Paralysis Was Caused By Vaccine?

In case you guys don’t know him, Steve Kirsch is a tech millionaire who made his money as one of two people who independently invented the optical mouse.

Well, he’s back with another COVID-19 vaccine conspiracy, after claiming Taylor Hawkins died from the vaccine.

This time, he is 99% certain that Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, using nothing more than VAERS and a calculator… I kid you not.

To top it off, he challenged me to yet another live debate, just like he did with his Taylor Hawkins claims.

Dear Steve, facts aren’t determined by live debates. They remain facts, irrespective of our individual opinions. I’ll just let the facts below speak for themselves…

Why Steve Kirsch Is 100% Wrong On Justin Bieber’s Paralysis : A Summary

First, let me quickly summarise some key facts about Justin Bieber’s facial paralysis :

  1. His facial paralysis was caused by the reactivation of a dormant viral infection, resulting in the Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS).
  2. RHS is caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), which causes chickenpox. It cannot be caused by a vaccine.
  3. RHS can be definitively confirmed by testing the rash or blood for the varicella zoster virus.

And here is a quick summary of why Steve Kirsch is 100% wrong… yet again :

  1. He offered ZERO evidence that Justin Bieber was even vaccinated.
  2. He offered ZERO evidence that Justin Bieber developed RHS because of the COVID-19 vaccine.
  3. He relied solely on VAERS data to calculate Bieber’s chances of developing RHS from the vaccine.
  4. He wasn’t satisfied with the VAERS data, so he artificially inflated the number to obtain a number he preferred.

Why Steve Kirsch Is 100% Wrong On Justin Bieber’s Paralysis, Point By Point…

Now, I will go through his “points”, and show you why Steve Kirsch is 100% wrong… in detail!

Claim : I blocked his comment offering a live debate on this issue
Fact : I didn’t block Steve’s comment. Tech ARP automatically holds all comments for moderation because we get a ton of troll posts.

Claim : Bieber’s wife was also likely vaccine injured
Fact : No one knows if Hailey Bieber was even vaccinated against COVID-19.
Fact : Hailey Bieber suffered from a transient ischaemic attack (TIA) from a blood clot that passed through a hole in her heart and travelled up to her brain. Even if she was vaccinated, her “mini stroke” was not caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Claim : Lots of young people are getting strokes after COVID-19 vaccination.
Fact : Lots of young people developed stroke before COVID-19 vaccination too. My wife was one of them.
Fact : COVID-19 infection increases your risk of developing stroke, through increased inflammation and hyper coagulation of the blood.

Claim : Justin Bieber must have been vaccinated against COVID-19
Fact : Steve Kirsch conducted his own reader survey to come to the conclusion that Justin Bieber must have been vaccinated, because his concerts required people to be vaccinated.
Fact : Steve Kirsch does not have any evidence or knowledge whether Justin Bieber was vaccinated against COVID-19.
Fact : The vaccination requirement for his concert was determined by the Event Organiser and the venue, not Justin Bieber himself.
Fact : Not all venues require COVID-19 vaccination. State Farm Arena in Georgia and PPG Paints Arena in Pennsylvania, for example, do not require proof of vaccination or even a negative COVID-19 test.
Fact : Whether participants are required to be vaccinated or not, is not evidence that Justin Bieber himself was vaccinated.

Read more : Did Bruce Willis get aphasia from COVID-19 vaccine?!

Claim : VAERS only had 1 report of RHS for non-COVID vaccines in the past 32 years
Fact : VAERS reports are unverified, and cannot be used to reach any conclusions about vaccine safety.
Fact : RHS occurs “naturally” in about 5 in 100,000 people per year. That’s approximately 400,000 cases per year globally.
Fact : The fact that RHS was only reported once in the past 32 years is proof that you cannot use VAERS reports to draw any kind of conclusion.

Claim : VAERS reported 5 cases of RHS after COVID-19 vaccination for Bieber’s age group
Fact : VAERS reports are unverified, and cannot be used to reach any conclusions about vaccine safety.
Fact : 5 cases out of 222 million fully-vaccinated individuals in the United States works out to an incidence rate of 0.002 per 100,000 people – over 2200x lower than the natural incidence rate of RHS.

Claim : According to VAERS, RHS can develop months after vaccination.
Fact : VAERS reports are unverified, and cannot be used to reach any conclusions about vaccine safety.
Fact : RHS can develop whenever the person’s immune system is suppressed – by stress, infection, medication, etc.
Fact : Approximately 400,000 people develop RHS every year, before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.
Fact : There is no evidence that RHS can develop weeks or months after COVID-19 vaccination.
Fact : The case studies of two persons developing RHS after COVID-19 vaccination showed that it occurred within 2-3 days after receiving the vaccine. Not weeks or months later.
Opinion : If Justin Bieber got vaccinated against COVID-19, he most likely got all his doses last year, not this year.
Opinion : Justin Bieber kicked off his Justice World Tour on 18 February 2022. Even assuming he got vaccinated for this tour, he would have received the last dose by 4 February at the latest. It is virtually impossible for his RHS to develop more than 4 months after his vaccination.

Read more : Here’s How Antivaxxers Create Fake News Using VAERS!

Claim : Estimated incidence rate is 338 per 100,000
Fact : The true incidence rate for Bieber’s age group was just 0.002 per 100,000 people, from Steve Kirsch’s own investigation.
Fact : He inflated the number by expanding the search to include all age groups, giving him 66 cases.
Fact : He then multiplied that inflated number by a fictional Under Reporting Factor of 128 that he made out of thin air.
Fact : Steve Kirsch’s estimated incidence rate was artificially skewed by 169,000 times!

Claim : 99% chance it was COVID-19 vaccine that caused Justin Bieber’s RHS
Fact : No one knows if Justin Bieber was even vaccinated against COVID-19.
Fact : Steve Kirsch only derived his 99% chance by artificially inflating the actual incidence rate of 0.002 per 100K people to 338 per 100K people.
Fact : The VAERS-based statistic for Bieber’s age group (which isn’t accurate to begin with) shows a 99.96% chance it was not caused by the vaccine.

Claim : There are two articles proving that COVID-19 vaccine causes RHS
Fact : Those two articles did not prove that any COVID-19 vaccine caused RHS.
Fact : RHS can only be caused by the reactivation of a dormant varicella zoster viral infection.
Fact : Both articles are case reports of a single patient each, who developed RHS within 2-3 days of a COVID-19 vaccination.
Fact : Correlation does not mean causation, especially when there are only two case reports.
Fact : Even if COVID-19 vaccines can trigger RHS, the two articles show that it has to happen within 2-3 days of the vaccination, not weeks or months later.

Did Justin Bieber Blame Pfizer Vaccine For His Paralysis?!

Did Justin Bieber blame the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for the permanent paralysis of his face?!

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

 

Claim : Justin Bieber Blamed Pfizer Vaccine For His Paralysis!

Vancouver Times just posted a story claiming that Justin Bieber blamed the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for the permanent paralysis of his face!

Justin Bieber now admits that he regrets taking the Covid-19 vaccine, saying that it left him with permanent paralysis in his face. Bieber made the confession to a close friend, who later leaked the information to the Daily Mail. Bieber reportedly plans on suing Pfizer for causing his paralysis, despite the fact the company is shielded from liability.

Bieber admitted that “the vaccine has ruined my life. I’m going to take these criminals to court and sue them. The CEO of Pfizer has a lot of skeletons in his closet, and now it’s payback time.”

Justin Bieber is a multi-millionaire with a massive platform. If he manages to stay alive, he may be able to blow the lid off the whole fake-pandemic-conspiracy. It has long been reported that Big Pharma and Hollywood are full of WEF and UN-aligned globalists that seek to form a one world government.

The mainstream media and big tech want to hide the truth. Beat them at their own game by sharing this article!

 

Truth : Justin Bieber Did NOT Blame Pfizer Vaccine For His Paralysis!

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

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

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

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

We are not affiliated with the mainstream media (CBC, CTV etc.) in any way, and any similarities between our content and the work of the MSM is purely coincidental.

Fact #2 : They Relabel Fake Stories As Satire

The Satire section in Vancouver Times appears to be a place where their fake stories go to “die”.

It looks like their SOP is to post fake stories as genuine news, to trick people and go viral. They will then shift their fake stories to the Satire section after getting fact checked.

They first posted this fake story about Justin Bieber under their America section, only moving it to their Satire section after I fact checked it.

Here are some of the fake news that they created recently, that we debunked :

Fact #3 : Justin Bieber Did Not Blame Pfizer Or Vaccine

Justin Bieber himself explained on his verified Instagram account that his facial paralysis was caused by a viral infection, not the Pfizer vaccine :

I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.

Vancouver Times falsely claimed that Justin told a friend who leaked it to Daily Mail, and added a link to trick you into believing it’s real.

The truth is – the Daily Mail article only detailed his Ramsay Hunt diagnosis, and did not claim he blamed the COVID-19 vaccine for it. In fact, the words “vaccine” of “Pfizer” do not even appear in the entire article!

Read more : Did Justin Bieber Get Ramsay Hunt Syndrome From Vaccine?!

Fact #4 : Justin Bieber Did Not Say His Paralysis Is Permanent

Vancouver Times falsely claimed that Justin Bieber said that his facial paralysis is permanent.

In fact, he told his fans that he will “get back to 100 per cent” by resting and doing facial exercises.

I will be using this time to rest and relax and get back to 100 percent so that I can do what I was born to do.

I am going to get better. I’m doing all of these facial exercises to get my face back to normal and it will go back to normal.

It’s just time, we don’t know how much time it will be, but it’s going to be okay.

That would obviously not be the case if his doctors told him that his facial paralysis is permanent.

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is treated by antiviral medication like acyclovir or famciclovir, as well as corticosteroids like methylprednisolone.

Generally, a high percentage of patients (70.4%) will recover completely with treatment, although some degree of facial paralysis and hearing loss may become permanent in some cases.

Fact #5 : Justin Bieber Did Not Say He Plans To Sue Pfizer

To be clear – Justin Bieber did not say that he plans to sue Pfizer for causing his condition. Vancouver Times made that up, to drive traffic to their website.

No one knows if Bieber was even vaccinated, never mind receiving the Pfizer vaccine.

Even if he was vaccinated, he could have received the Moderna vaccine or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine – the other two COVID-19 vaccines approved in the United States.

What is clear though is that Justin Bieber never said he wants to sue Pfizer because their “vaccine ruined his life”.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Was Paul Pelosi Arrested For Child Porn + Cocaine?!

Was Paul Pelosi – US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband – just arrested for child porn and crack cocaine?!

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

Updated @ 2022-06-10 : Added Napa County DA’s announcement on charges.
Originally posted @ 2022-05-30

 

Claim : Paul Pelosi Was Arrested For Child Porn + Cocaine!

Within hours of the news breaking that US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was arrested in California, Vancouver Times posted a story that claimed he was found to also be in possession of child porn and crack cocaine!

They later updated their story to also claim that Nancy Pelosi would also face charges, and that she was tied to international sex trafficking rings.

Paul Pelosi is in serious trouble and could face many years in prison.

Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, was re-arrested this weekend for possession of child pornography and crack cocaine. The MSM reported on the first arrest, but not the second arrest.

Sources indicate Pelosi paid off the prosecutor’s office to keep the second arrest “off-the-books.”

Paul Pelosi was first arrested late Saturday in Napa County north of San Francisco, according to a sheriff’s office online booking report.

He was caught driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher, the report said.

Pelosi was originally released on bail, but was re-arrested after police found child pornography on his phone, as well as crack cocaine and pipes in his car. The child porn and drugs were not found during the initial search.

California Highway Patrol Officer and the FBI stated the investigation is ongoing and both Pelosi and his wife Nancy could be facing more charges. There has long been speculation the Pelosi’s are tied to international sex trafficking rings.

Pelosi’s arrest was first reported by TMZ.

 

Truth : Paul Pelosi Was Not Arrested For Child Porn Or Cocaine…

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

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

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

They first posted this fake story about Paul Pelosi under their America section, only moving it to their Satire section after I fact checked it.

Here are some of the fake news that they created recently, that we debunked :

Fact #3 : Paul Pelosi Was Arrested For DUI

Paul Pelosi was driving home from a dinner party at around 10:15 PM on Saturday night, when his 2021 Porsche was hit by a 48 year-old Jeep driver on Walnut Lane in the Napa County while he was trying to cross a State Route 29 intersection.

After the accident, Paul was arrested on “suspicion of DUI”.  He was not arrested for possession of child porn or crack cocaine.

Vancouver Times created that fake claim that the police found child pornography and crack cocaine to drive traffic to their website.

Fact #4 : He Was Granted Bail Within Hours

Paul Pelosi was granted bail within hours, which would not be possible if he was really found to possess child pornography and crack cocaine, as Vancouver Times falsely claimed.

According to Napa County records, this was what happened :

  • 11:44 PM, May 28 : Paul Pelosi was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
  • 4:13 AM, May 29 : Paul Pelosi was booked into jail
  • 7:26 AM, May 29 : Paul Pelosi was released at 7:26 on bail

Fact #5 : He Faces Two Misdemeanour Charges

Paul Pelosi’s bail was set at $5,000 for two counts of misdemeanour :

  • driving under the influence
  • driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher

As the police booking record shows, there was NO MENTION of child porn or crack cocaine – the possession of which are felonies, not misdemeanours.

Vancouver Times made up those claims, to drive traffic to their fake news article.

Fact #6 : Nancy Pelosi Was Not Involved

US Speaker Nancy Pelosi was not with her husband during the incident, it is nonsensical for Vancouver Times to claim that she could be facing charges herself.

This was confirmed by her spokesperson, who stated :

The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.

She could not be with her husband as she was in the East Coast to deliver a commencement address to the 2022 graduates and receive an honorary doctorate degree at Brown University in Rhode Island, on Monday, 30 May 2022.

Fact #7 : Nancy Pelosi Was Not Tied To Sex Trafficking Rings

Nancy Pelosi was never tied to sex trafficking rings.

That is part of QAnon conspiracy theories about Democrat sex trafficking rings that have been repeatedly debunked.

Fact #8 : Napa County DA Reviewing DUI Charges

On Thursday, June 9, 2022, Napa County District Attorney Allison Haley announced that the Napa County DA’s Office was reviewing the DUI charges.

Haley also said that Paul Pelosi agreed to a court date for early August, although no decision has been made at this time (to charge him for DUI).

If it’s not obvious by now, Paul Pelosi was never arrested and will not be charged for possession of child porn or crack cocaine.

Did Hundreds Of Athletes Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects?!

Did hundreds of athletes die of COVID-19 vaccine side effects, shortly after getting vaccinated?!

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

 

Claim : Hundreds Of Athletes Died Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects!

For many months now, the Good Sciencing website has been claiming that hundreds of athletes have died of COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

They compiled a list of athletes who died, and created a chart to prove that their deaths must be caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is definitely not normal for so many mainly young athletes to suffer from cardiac arrests or to die while playing their sport, but this year it is happening. Many of these heart issues and deaths come shortly after they got a COVID vaccine. While it is possible this can happen to people who did not get a COVID vaccine, the sheer numbers clearly point to the only obvious cause.

The so-called health professionals running the COVID vaccine programs around the world keep repeating that “the COVID vaccine is a normal vaccine and it is safe and effective.”

 

Truth : Hundreds Of Athletes Did NOT Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists to scare people from protecting themselves with the COVID-19 vaccines.

The truth is – hundreds of athletes did not die from COVID-19 vaccine side effects, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Their Vaccination Status Are Unknown

Before anyone can come analyse this issue, one must first collect good data. The problem is Good Sciencing doesn’t have good data.

Specifically, they do NOT actually know if the athletes in their database were even vaccinated!

If they are not even sure those athletes were vaccinated, how can they be sure their injuries or deaths were due to the vaccine???

But instead of doing any actual research, they gave themselves a waiver by claiming that everyone from the clubs, sponsors and even the players are hiding that information.

Wow, what an easy way out! Everyone must be lying, therefore they must all be vaccinated! What bullshit.

Fact #2 : They Did Not Establish Causation

Good Sciencing believes that their chart shows a direct correlation between COVID-19 vaccinations (which began for most countries in early 2021) and the deaths of athletes.

The problem is – correlation does not imply causation. For example, if you get pregnant after getting the COVID-19 vaccine, does it mean that the vaccine made you pregnant? Of course, not.

Good Sciencing never offered proof that the deaths or injuries were caused by the vaccine. They only claimed that the athletes must have died or got injured by the vaccine, because they were so young and fit.

Fact #3 : Many Athletes Die Unexpectedly

Good Sciencing suggests that it is rather rate for young and fit athletes to die suddenly. That’s really nonsense.

Let’s take a look at the Maron study they used as evidence. The chart from that study shows a progressive rise in sudden death reports of 6% per year, from 1980 to 2006.

Good Sciencing does not show you this chart, because it shows that sudden deaths in young and fit athletes more than quadrupled from 1980 to 2006!

This puts paid to their claim that such a rise in sudden death must be due to the COVID-19 vaccine, which obviously did not exist back then.

Fact #4 : They Compared US Athletes vs. World

Good Sciencing claimed that over 680 athletes died in 17 months, compared to 1866 athletes in 27 years (324 months) of the Maron study.

But what they don’t tell you is that they were comparing athlete sudden deaths WORLDWIDE against the Maron study, which only looked at athlete sudden deaths in the United States.

Do they realise how stupid that is? The population of the United States in 2006 was 298 million, whereas the worldwide population right now is 7.9 billion.

No, they are not stupid. They are just dishonest. They skewed their data 26.5X in their favour, by comparing US deaths from the past to worldwide deaths today.

Fact #5 : Athletes Were Under Lockdown

Good Sciencing also (intentionally?) forgot to point out that the Maron study showed that 82% of those sudden deaths occurred with physical exertion during competition or training.

This is an important point, because most athletes were not competing or playing in the early months of 2021, due to COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions.

Those COVID-19 restrictions started to taper off as vaccination numbers rose, and sports tournaments and games started up towards the latter half of 2021.

The resumption of strenuous sporting activities would explain the increase in athlete sudden deaths throughout 2021.

That is certainly far more plausible than blaming the COVID-19 vaccine without even knowing if they were vaccinated in the first place!

Fact #6 : They Included Chronic Diseases

Good Sciencing intentionally skewed their data by including deaths from chronic diseases like cancer and chronic heart conditions.

Here is a selection of athletes whose deaths / conditions they are blaming on the COVID-19 vaccine, despite being of chronic conditions that would be started long before the vaccine was developed.

  • Danielle Kang : Golfer who was diagnosed with a tumour on her spine, which has not been determined to be malignant or benign.
  • Alex Rodrigo Dias da Costa : Footballer who underwent a quadruple bypass heart surgery to clear blocked coronary arteries.
  • Justin Hardy : Basketball player who died from stomach cancer.
  • Bobby Hill : Australian football player who was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
  • Lazar LaPenna : 10 year-old boy (who isn’t an athlete!) who suffered from epilepsy, and died after going into seizures.

Amazingly, they even included athletes who suffered from COVID-19 injuries! I’m surprised they didn’t include athletes who died from car accidents!

Fact #7 : They Included The Elderly Too!

While Good Sciencing claimed that it is not normal for “young athletes” to suffer from cardiac arrests or die while playing their sport, they didn’t hesitate to include the elderly to skew their data!

Here is a selection of “not so young” athletes they used in their data…

  • Peter Matera : 53 year-old former Australian footballer who had a cardiac arrest while chopping wood
  • Michele Bortignon : 51 year-old rally driver who had a cardiac arrest while driving.
  • Franco Del C Pendant : 58 year-old cyclist who had a cardiac arrest while cycling.
  • David Shaffer : 59 year-old football coach who collapsed from a heart condition while driving.
  • Unnamed 60 year-old cyclist (not even an athlete!) who died while cycling.
  • Another unnamed 65 year-old cyclist (not even an athlete) who died while cycling.

Fact #8 : They Included Suicides!

Astoundingly, Good Sciencing included people who died from suicide in their data!

  • Lauren Bernette : 20 year-old softball player
  • Sarah Shulze : 21 year-old track and cross-country runner
  • Jordan Michelle : 29 year-old rugby player
  • Olivia Podmore : 24 year-old cyclist
  • Cameron Burell : 27 year-old sprinter
  • Albert Linder : 25 year-old weightlifter

In one case, where the person committed suicide by self-inflicted gunshot, this was their reason for adding him to their database of athletes killed by the vaccine :

Was he vaxxed and if so, did he know his career was over?

Fact #9 : Good Sciencing Is Known For Fake News

Good Sciencing is known for creating and disseminating fake news about COVID-19 vaccines.

Everything posted by Good Sciencing (also called Real Science) must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Was Amber Heard Just Arrested For Perjury, Cocaine + Meth?!

Was Amber Heard just arrested for perjury, only for cops to find cocaine and crystal meth on her too?!

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

 

Claim : Amber Heard Was Just Arrested For Perjury, Cocaine + Meth!

After the Johnny Depp – Amber Heard defamation trial concluded, Vancouver Times posted a story that claimed Amber Heard was arrested for perjury and cocaine, only for the cops to find her with cocaine and crystal meth!

Amber Heard has been arrested by state police for multiple criminal offences including perjury and possession of cocaine. Heard is accused of making multiple false statements on the witness stand during her defamation trial. When police went to her residence to execute the arrest warrant, Heard was found to be in possession of a small amount of cocaine and crystal methamphetamine.

This comes after a jury ruled in favour of her ex-husband Johnny Depp, deciding he had been defamed by Heard, giving him USD$15-million in damages. This amount was later slashed by the judge to $10.35 million.

Lawyers previously warned that Amber Heard was is in “serious danger” of facing jail time over perjury charges after the Johnny Depp case. This recent arrest proves the lawyers were right.

Like many high-profile cases, Heard’s arrest has been subject to a publication ban, and it won’t be reported by the mainstream media.

The mainstream media and big tech want to hide the truth. Beat them at their own game by sharing this article!

Truth : Amber Heard Was Not Arrested For Perjury, Cocaine or Meth!

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

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

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

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”. This time, they didn’t even bother to park it under their “Satire” section.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they labelled themselves as a satire website in their About Us section, hidden at the very bottom of the page, after a long list of comments.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

We are not affiliated with the mainstream media (CBC, CTV etc.) in any way, and any similarities between our content and the work of the MSM is purely coincidental.

Here are some of the fake news that they created recently, that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Amber Heard Was Not Arrested

Amber Heard was not arrested, not for perjury, not for cocaine, not for crystal meth.

She may be at risk of being charged for perjury, but that has not happened yet.

Vancouver Times created that fake claim to drive traffic to their website.

Fact #3 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

If Amber Heard was arrested, it would have been worldwide news, even if it was just for perjury and not the possession of cocaine or meth.

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on this. Not even TMZ!

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the FBI – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about such a momentous arrest.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been gleefully published by celebrity bloggers and websites.

Yet, not a single press / gonzo outlet published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Remember the fake story of how Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla was arrested by the FBI for fraud? That was also fake…

Fact #4 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about Amber Heard’s arrest.

They would all loved it if she really was arrested for perjury and possession of cocaine and meth. The news would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Are 70 Countries Planning To Sue China For Vaccine Deaths?!

Are 70 countries around the world preparing to sue China for COVID-19 vaccine deaths?!

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

 

Claim : 70 Countries Are Preparing To Sue China For Vaccine Deaths!

This message is going viral on WhatsApp and Twitter, claiming that 70 countries around the world are preparing to sue China for COVID-19 vaccine deaths.

Miles Guo
💥Due to the vaccine-related death, around 70 countries are preparing to sue China in the International Arbitration Court, if US ceases the vaccine mandate, China may have to pay 600 trill USD for all the vaccine-related mortality🤢they work for another 10,000 years!

The message is often linked to the source of that claim – this Gnews article :

On May 29th in a livestream, Miles Guo revealed that currently at least 70 countries that have adopted Communist China’s vaccines are preparing to sue the Chinese Communist Party – CCP for vaccine-related deaths. These countries are requesting an independent arbitration in the International Arbitration Court in UK London.

He said for sure the CCP won’t show up in the court, which would lead to a unilateral arbitration directly, and in that case, it’s almost 100% sure that the court would find CCP liable for the vaccine related deaths, which might bring up to approximately 600 trillion USD for a compensation, and that is an astronomical amount for the Chinese deplorables (Lao Baixing) to pay.

 

Truth : 70 Countries Are Not Preparing To Sue China For Vaccine Deaths!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by G News, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Country Is Preparing To Sue China For Vaccine Deaths

Despite what Miles Guo may claim, there is no country that is planning to sue the Chinese Communist Party for deaths related to Chinese vaccines.

Fact #2 : There Is No International Arbitration Court

There is no international body called the International Arbitration Court. The two major courts that deal with disputes between countries are :

  • The International Court of Justice (ICJ), which is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations
  • The Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA), which is a non-UN intergovernmental organisation.

Neither the ICJ nor the PCA are based in London, the United Kingdom. They are both based in The Hague, Netherlands.

There is a London Court of International Arbitration, but that is a British private company offers dispute resolution through arbitration and mediation. Hardly a proper channel to “sue” China, isn’t it?

Fact #3 : G-Times News Is Infamous For Fake News

This fake story was created by G-Times News (also known as GNews or G News), a website owned by Guo Media.

Guo Media is a company associated with Guo Wengui (also known as Miles Guo), an exiled Chinese businessman, and Steve Bannon – both of whom are infamous for creating and spreading misinformation.

Naturally, both Guo and Bannon are often featured in G News coverage. It doesn’t make them prescient, just pretentious.

Just like the time G-Times News claimed that Pfizer delisted itself on the Nasdaq and NYSE!

Fact #4 : Chinese Vaccines Save Lives

China has been selling tons of COVID-19 vaccines, in particular, the Sinovac CoronaVac, the Sinopharm BIBP and the CanSino Convidecia.

They were not very efficacious even against the ancestral COVID-19 virus, but they offered very good protection against severe disease and death, as this table shows.

Their efficacy against COVID-19 variants like Delta and Omicron were much poorer to be sure. But we have to acknowledge that these Chinese vaccines still saved lives.

COVID-19 Vaccine Protection Against
Symptomatic
Infection
Severe
Disease
Death
Pfizer Comirnaty 95.0% 100% 100%
Gamaleya Sputnik V 91.6% 100% 100%
Moderna mRNA-1273 94.1% 100% 100%
AstraZeneca AZD1222 62% ~ 90% 100% 100%
Sinopharm BBIBP-CorV 79% ~ 86% 90% 100%
J&J Janssen COVID-19 66.0% 85% 100%
CanSino Convidecia 65.7% 90.98% 100%
Sinovac CoronaVac 50.65% 83.7% 100%

Fact #5 : CCP Did Not Make COVID-19 Vaccines

The Chinese COVID-19 vaccines were developed and produced by various Chinese pharmaceutical companies, not the Chinese Communist Party.

So it would be really absurd to sue the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), or the country of China, for the poor efficacy of vaccines produced by Chinese companies.

Only fake news creators and conspiracy theorists can come up with such ridiculous claims, and expect to be taken seriously.

Did Hackers Release Pfizer + Moderna Vaccine Death Data?!

Did hackers just crack the Pfizer and Moderna servers, and publicly released the hidden vaccine death data that they stole?!

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

 

Claim : Hackers Stole, Released Pfizer + Moderna Vaccine Death Data!

People are sharing links to articles that claim that hackers just stole and released vaccine death data from Pfizer and Moderna servers!

Here is an example, which is rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

GOOD NEWS!!!! Hackers broke into all the pharmaceutical companies and stold all the medial data on vaccines thank God!!!! The Great Awaking has lifted off!!! Forward this link everywhere!!!!

**Displays number of deaths and disabilities associated with each batch/lot number = indication of relative toxicity of one batch/lot compared to another
**No one currently knows the reason why some batches/lots are associated with excessive deaths, disabilities and adverse reactions (up to 50 x). Until we do know, it is best to be cautious
**[“Batch-code” = “Lot Number” = the number they write on your vaccination card.]

 

Truth : Hackers Did Not Steal / Release Pfizer + Moderna Vaccine Death Data!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and promoted by disinformation websites like Before It’s News, How Bad Is My BatchBest News Here, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pfizer + Moderna Servers Were Not Hacked

Those websites falsely claimed that hackers broke into Pfizer and Moderna servers, and stole their (hidden) vaccine death data.

There is no evidence the Pfizer and Moderna servers were ever hacked, or had any data stolen.

Fact #2 : All Data Are Publicly Available

Despite claiming at the start that the data provided in the website was stolen from Pfizer and Moderna servers, the article ends with a statement that all of the data was really sourced from VAERS.

Data Source
• All data is sourced from VAERS, a public database of over 700,000 adverse reaction reports for Moderna, Pfizer and Janssen Covid 19 vaccines in the USA. 
Our intention is to present the VAERS data in an accessible and unadulterated form, that can be easily verified using the links below

In other words – they falsely claimed that the data was provided by hackers who broke into Pfizer and Moderna servers. The data were all from VAERS, which is publicly available.

Fact #3 : VAERS Data Cannot Be Used As Evidence

Like the British Yellow Card system, VAERS is an open reporting system that lets ANYONE from ANYWHERE file a report, without verification.

VAERS reports are not only easily faked, they are easily abused, which why the CDC explicitly warned that :

  • Reports may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.
  • The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to reach conclusions about the existence, severity, frequency, or rates of problems associated with vaccines.

But anti-vaccination activists and disinformation websites LOVE to use VAERS, because they can easily manipulate the reports to create a fake narrative.

Fact #4 : Pfizer + Moderna Released Their Data In 2020

Both Pfizer and Moderna submitted data from their COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials to health authorities across the world, like the US FDA and EMA in Europe in November 2020.

The release of clinical trial data, which would include post-vaccination adverse events, is necessary for any health authority to approve their vaccines.

The US FDA released the briefing documents Pfizer and Moderna submitted to the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) in December 2020 :

Fact #5 : FDA Started Releasing Pfizer Documents In 2021

On 27 August 2021, a group that called themselves Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency (PHMPT) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the US FDA to gain access to all of their documents related to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

The US FDA started releasing the Pfizer documents on 17 November 2021. They were then ordered by US District Judge Mark Pittman to speed up the release of those documents on 6 January 2022.

As of 2 May 2022, the US FDA had already released 238 documents related to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, containing thousands of pages.

Fact #6 : Before It’s News Is Known Fake News Website

Before It’s News is known for creating and spreading fake news – not just misinformation, but also disinformation about everything from MH17 conspiracy theories to anti-vaccination claims.

Everything posted by Before It’s News must be considered FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.
