Colin Powell Committed Suicide
By Michael Baxter – October 18, 2021
The disreputable, faux Biden administration and its media cohorts have perpetrated yet another fallacy on the American public by claiming that Colin Powell died of “Covid-19 complications” despite being fully vaccinated. Although breakthrough infections that result in death are becoming more common and broadly reported by alternative media, Colin Powell had never received a positive Covid-19 diagnosis or displayed symptoms commonly associated with the China virus, said an administration whistleblower speaking under promise of anonymity.
The administration and the media have released scant details on his death, obfuscating both where he died and the approximate time of death, but were quick to blame his demise on Covid-19.
Powell, who had suffered from multiple myeloma, a blood cancer, committed suicide early Monday morning, our source said.
“Powell died at home after consuming a bottle of prescription sleeping pills,” he said.
For the rest of this fabricated story:

Military Executes Tom Hanks
By Michael Baxter – July 27, 2021
Actor Tom Hanks has left the earth, put to death by a military tribunal that found him guilty of pedophilia and child endangerment.
On June 12, the U.S. military apprehended Hanks after a plane he had chartered in Greece, where he held dual citizenship, landed at Malpensa Airport in Milan, Italy, where Hanks had been scheduled to attend a foreign film festival.
U.S. military sources told RRN that members of the 173rd Airborne Combat Brigade and INTERPOL were awaiting Hanks’ arrival when the Learjet 75 reached the airport apron. Weapons drawn, they boarded the plane and found Hanks seated beside longtime friend Peter Scolari, who in 1980 starred alongside Hanks in the TV sitcom Bosom Buddies, in which the duo portrayed transvestites living in an all-female college dormitory. Hanks would later say it was his favorite role, and that wearing women’s clothes made him feel more manly.
The military released Scolari but shackled and promptly ushered Hanks aboard a waiting C-130, which had to be refueled twice inflight to reach Diego Garcia, where the Office of Military Commissions has built a penitentiary near its B2 bomber base. Upon landing, Hanks was placed in a holding cell to await his military tribunal.
Ten days later, Hanks had his day in court, with the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps presenting proof connecting Hanks to a child trafficking ring that, the military alleged, had worked in the shadows for 30 years. It presented into evidence many electronic devices—laptops and cellphones—that held photographs and videos of Hanks engaged in sexual intercourse with male children who were obviously below the age of consent.
However, Tom Hanks is still alive.

Fact Check-False news article about Tom Hanks
Users are sharing an article that falsely claims actor Tom Hanks was executed by the U.S. military. The claim stems from a website repeatedly debunked by Reuters.
An example can be seen here .
The posts share a link to an article published on RealRawNews.com (here ) on July 27, 2021, where the first two paragraphs read: “Actor Tom Hanks has left the earth, put to death by a military tribunal that found him guilty of pedophilia and child endangerment. On June 12, the U.S. military apprehended Hanks after a plane he had chartered in Greece, where he holds dual citizenship, landed at Malpensa Airport in Milan, Italy, where Hanks had been scheduled to attend a foreign film festival.”
The website states in its ‘About Us’ section (here) that: “Information on this website is for informational and educational and entertainment purposes. This website contains humor, parody, and satire. We have included this disclaimer for our protection, on the advice of legal counsel.”
False. Actor Tom Hanks has not been executed by the U.S. military after being found guilty of pedophilia and child endangerment.

Real Raw News claimed that Bill Clinton was poisoned. In fact, Bill Clinton was not poisoned and is still alive.
“Bill Clinton Death Ruled a Homicide, Death by Poison,” reads a screenshot of a Sept. 30 article that was shared to Instagram on Oct. 15 and accumulated more than 700 likes within a few days.

Viral image stated on October 14, 2021 in an Instagram post: “Bill Clinton death ruled a homicide, death by poison.”
No, Bill Clinton wasn’t poisoned to death
If Your Time is short
- Bill Clinton wasn’t killed by poison in Guantanamo Bay, as a recent news website claimed.
- The site, Real Raw News, has a history of publishing unfounded conspiracy theories.
On Oct. 14, a spokesperson for former President Bill Clinton tweeted that Clinton had been admitted to the hospital two days earlier to get treatment for an infection unrelated to COVID-19.
“He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses and staff providing him excellent care,” spokesperson Angel Ureña said in the statement.
That may have come as a shock to people who believed a recent fake news headline that said Clinton was already dead.
“Bill Clinton death ruled a homicide, death by poison,” a screenshot of the Sept. 30 headline said.
The headline appeared on the website Real Raw News, which has published many falsehoods that PolitiFact has checked. In September, we investigated Real Raw News and found the man behind the site previously ran at least three other websites and associated YouTube channels that promoted conspiracy theories.
Though the website features a caveat that it says it contains “humor, parody and satire,” its stories are often shared without context and its author has defended the posts as the truth.
As for the claim that Clinton, 75, is dead — or was killed by poison and discovered lying on a cell floor in Guantanamo Bay, as the Real Raw News narrative goes — it’s not true. It is unfounded and fabricated.
Later in the day on Oct. 14, Clinton’s spokesperson tweeted a statement from Clinton’s doctors explaining his treatment at UC Irvine Medical Center.
“We hope to have him go home soon,” it concluded.
