Bill Gates: Philanthropy's Brawl For Control

The elite may present themselves as ‘philanthropists’, but when those same people invest billions into the control of information, healthcare and pharmaceuticals – alternative motives cannot be left out of account.

When dealing with the matter at hand – or usually not, most people would assume that a philanthropist is a man of charity, someone whose character reflects the very best of humanity. Our civilization has become almost entirely inept to asking the right questions, always focusing on the meaning of the word, ‘a person who seeks to promote the welfare of others’, rather than any genuine purpose behinds its glory of veneer. Despite the crude events of history – the fallacy further believes that any man with a smile on his face and a penny to give, is, without question, one of the best and brightest of philanthropists

Some people are not only unable to ask the right questions, but it seems, out of fear, they refuse to ask. The facade of some public figures has been so glorified that any dissent against them would seem utmost disrespectful. For any man that gives money to the poor must be a saint. No questions asked. Then again, Joseph Stalin was described as a ‘man of steel’, and even Hitler was a pioneer for hand sanitization, yet history revealed their motives far too late. In that respect, and in the disrespect of current events, it is worth asking who are these billion-dollar philanthropists?

Those who have studied closely the events of the past year will have no doubt come across the all-knowing, mysterious force known as ‘they‘. One might hear: “they are saying that we need to go into lockdown”, “they say that disinformation is a serious problem”. They, apparently then is in every country, every continent, and in every government, directing the exact same policy – globally. With a sincere smile on my face, I believe I can now reveal that they, has a face, a bitter personality, and appears to have manifested itself within billions of dollars of tax-free money transactions, less spitefully called philanthropy.

It was twenty-three years ago now that billionaire Bill Gates was taken to court for manipulative business. His accusers – the United States government, accused the billionaire of using anti-competitive policies to exclude any potential software competitors from successfully entering the computer market. The case distastefully found that any computer manufacturer, internet service provider, or online content provider could only enter a content agreement with Microsoft under the condition that they refused to promote any other software that competed against Microsoft.

The suit further found that online content providers; Disney and CBSsportsline named, were entering exclusionary agreements to be placed on Internet Explorers selected ‘channels’ section. Content providers were thus required to design their website using Microsoft specific code – as it worked better in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, and not to promote any other browser than Internet Explorer. Microsoft did the same to computer manufacturers, who, as a condition of obtaining Windows licenses, would have to restrain changing the Windows startup sign, automatically install Internet Explorer on the computers and withdraw from promoting any other non-Microsoft browser.

Microsoft was not new to such accusations either; its co-founder, Paul Allen, described working with Bill Gates as “browbeating and verbal attacks”, once saying, “some days working with you is like being in hell”. In 1983 Allen fell ill with cancer; he later described on CBS News that Gates tried to “basically dilute my share down to almost nothing… and it was, really a shocking and disheartening moment for me”, “I was right in the middle of radiation therapy”. 

Two decades past, the daunting face of once the world’s richest man has well and truly rebranded himself: the philanthropist. The software engineer, billionaire business mogul and technology monopoliser had turned his attention elsewhere… vaccines and charity. In early to mid-2000, Gates created what soon became one of the largest ‘charitable’ trusts in the world, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as its stablemate GAVI, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation.    

The use of political terms like philanthropist –  firmly political as we shall come to see, should be no more overlooked than the fact that Gates has made over 2130 grants, channeled around $40 billion through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and given much more to the tune of eleven figures. It is almost universally agreed that philanthropy is a considerable act, yet it is always universally agreed not to pin down the meaning of that word. Through the foolish eyes of the BBC, the Gates Foundation is usually dismissed as nothing but pure and triumphant philanthropy, except, it seems, only through those eyes can that perspective be taken – not least because it is that very organization that has received millions from the foundation.

Three months prior to the first outbreak of ‘Covid-19’ in China, the Gates Foundation was assembling its own venture – a ‘high-level pandemic’ planning exercise. The event, named Event 201, was a pandemic scenario exercise to prepare for future pandemics, specifically a coronavirus pandemic. Partnering co-founders of the exercise were the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Economic Forum (who have received over $7m from the Gates Foundation) and the Johns Hopkins University (which has recieved nearly $900m from the Gates foundation). The Johns Hopkins Centre for Health Security wrote of the event: 

Experts agree that it is only a matter of time before one of these epidemics becomes global—a pandemic with potentially catastrophic consequences. A severe pandemic, which becomes “Event 201,” would require reliable cooperation among several industries, national governments, and key international institutions.

The purpose of the exercise was to simulate what it would look like in the case of a worldwide coronavirus pandemic, and how global governments and business partners would have to react to stop the spread of the virus, tackle ‘disinformation’, and ‘protect’ their citizens’. In creating this reality, the event also prepared its own pre-recorded television simuations which ran: 

It began in healthy-looking pigs, months, perhaps years ago; a new Coronavirus spreads silently within herds. Gradually farmers started getting sick. Infected people got a respiratory illness with symptoms ranging from mild Flu-like signs to severe Pneumonia. The sickest required intensive care – many died” 

… “Experts agree unless it is quickly controlled it could lead to a severe pandemic, an outbreak that circles the globe, and affects people everywhere”

The key players in the pandemic planning exercise were Dr Chris Elias represetig the Gates Foundation, Sofia Borges; the Senior Vice President of the UN Foundation, Timothy Evans who formerly worked as assistant director-general at the WHO, co-founded GAVI with the Gates Foundation and worked as a director at both the Rockefeller Foundation and World Bank.

Other members included Stephen Redd; director of Public Health Service at the CDC, Avril Haines; former US national security advisor, director of the Central Intelligence Agency and assistant to Barack Obama, Adrian Thomas; vice president at Johnson & Johnson, Hasti Taghi; representing NBCUniversal, and most appropriately, George Gao, the director of the Chinese Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

Three months after the exercise, which humbly took place on October 18th, 2019, a new alleged coronavirus had made its way into Wuhan and was ready to ‘spread’ internationally. For this to happen, first there would have to be a way to test for the ‘virus’. On January 23’rd 2020, the first diagnostic test to ‘test’ for the novel coronavirus had been created; a PCR test protocol published in Euroserveillance, by a team of scientists in Germany led by lead author’s Christian Drosten, Victor Corman, and Olfert Landt. In a 2014 interview with WirtsChafts, while developing the MERS PCR test, Drosten himself said of the PCR protocol: 

The method is so sensitive that it can detect a single hereditary molecule of this virus. If such a pathogen, for example, flits across a nurse’s nasal mucosa for a day without her getting sick or noticing anything else, she is suddenly a MERS case. Where previously, people at death’s door were reported, now mild cases and even people without symptoms are suddenly included in the reporting statistics.”

I imagine the efficacy of the test at question hardly posed a threat to the paper’s founders, particularly co-author Olfert Landt, who also owns the PCR Test company TIB MOBIOL, which was producing PCR kits from February. According to Landt, the tests were produced without even having the ‘virus’, Landt said this of the PCR: “The test, the design, the development, came from the Charité [Institute]. We just immediately converted that into a kit format. When you don’t have the virus, which was initially only available in Wuhan, we can make a synthetic gene [i.e. using computer modelling] to simulate the virus genome. We did that very quickly.”

During this time, March 2020, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation committed $249,550 towards Drosten’s Charité institute to ‘develop tools to enable a rapid response to the novel 2019 coronavirus’. Soon after the funding and production of the test, the World Health Organisation, which has been funded to the tune of $5 billion from the Gates Foundation, accepted the ‘Corman-Drosten’ PCR kit as the first reliable test for Covid-19 and sent it around the globe.

Christian Drosten would later be added to Germany’s International Advisory Board on Global Health, with Jeremy Farrar; director of the Wellcome Trust, and Dr. Christopher Elias, an attendee at Event 201 and president of the Global Development Program at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Drosten is also a member of CEPI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, co-founded by Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, and the Wellcome Trust. 

Unfortunately for the philanthropists, such the problem of funding millions of tests, but no incentive to lockdown was still present. On the 16th March, in came professors Neil Ferguson and Azra Ghani from Imperial College London. Ferguson and Ghani released an epidemiological report warning that if western governments did not lockdown their countries, they would face severe deaths. The report warned that the UK could face up to 550,000 deaths, and the United States could face up to 2.2 million deaths.

Ferguson wasn’t going to wait around either, soon making it into the House of Commons Science and Technology department to warn the government of the measures needed. Later he was also appointed as a member of SAGE and NERVTAG, the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies to the government and the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group. 

Like all events in the name of lockdown, Gates’s philanthropic wildfire hadn’t withdrawn. Since 2002, Imperial College London has received grants to the tune of over $280m from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, including a wild $91,494,791 from the foundation last year. Millions have been spent in Imperial’s epidemiology department, where Ferguson works as the head. In November 2016, for example, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation granted $5,625,310 to Imperial College to establish a Vaccine Modelling Consortium. The foundation explained the funding was to: ‘improve the quality and timeliness of estimates of the impact of Gavi-funded vaccination programs via the establishment of a Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium.’

After its establishment, the director of the Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium would end up being none other than Neil Ferguson. Other members in the consortium included Dan Hogan, from the Gates created GAVI Alliance, Emily Dansereau from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Azra Ghani, who would later assist him in creating the paper that put the world in lockdown.

Neil Ferguson and Azra Ghani are also both listed as large applicants for grants from the Wellcome Trust, regular partners of the Gates Foundation. In 2017, the pair received $2m worth of funding to for Imperial College to conduct ‘Epidemiology, evolution and control of infectious diseases’. 

Neil Ferguson is hardly shy around the Gates foundation. According to Ferguson’s portfolio on gov.uk, he is also a ‘principal investigator’ at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Gavi, the (Gates created) Vaccine Alliance. Ferguson is also listed as the director of the Centre for Infectious Disease Modelling at the World Health Organisation, and a consultant at the World Bank. Hardly can such factors be left out of account.

Those who are awake – can think independently, will no doubt have caught upon the continuous one-sided dialogue peddled by the media. Generally, depending on the outlet, it will have a different political twist to it; each politician or celebrity doctor has his own slogan, but at the core of media show, the same narrative of ‘we must lockdown no questions asked’ is grounded in the cavalry. Already I have explored the daunting fact that the Gates Foundation funded the planning exercise for a coronavirus, funded the first diagnostic test for the coronavirus, and funded the first epidemiological justification for nationwide lockdowns – none of which received any mainstream scepticism.

I also mentioned the BBC’s ignorance of any real meaning behind the word ‘philanthropy’, it must be said that not one part of this scandal could be achieved without the mass ignorance of the mainstream media. If you’re willing to let loose any last hope in the pathetic excuse for ‘journalism’ in the BBC, it should bear no surprise to you that BBC Media Action has received itself $52m ($52,309,126) from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. No doubt either that the donations do not come for any reason. Last year $1m was granted to BBC’s Media Action for ‘global health and development public awareness and analysis’. 

As the greatest media recipient from the Gates Foundation, it would make sense that the BBC would later report some of the following headlines: ‘How Bill Gates became the ‘voodoo doll’ of conspiracy theories’, ‘Epstein meetings a huge mistake says Bill Gates’, ‘Blocking research with China would hurt Microsoft, boss says’. How kind of the BBC to take such a kind baring perspective.

Fortunately for Gates, the BBC, which he has funded since 2005, isn’t the only major recipient of his grant money. Among others, the Guardian has received $12.7m for ‘global health’ and ‘public awareness’, the Atlantic has received $1.5m in grants, the Financial Times has received $2.3m, the Washington Monthly were granted $1.1m, the Texas tribune was granted $2.2m, AlJazeera was granted $1m. The media conglomerate NBCUniversal, owners of NBC News, MSNBC and CNBC, was kindly granted $9.6m from the Gates Foundation. A justifiable move, as NBC was suffering from just $23.6b in annual revenue around this time. God bless. 

To carry on the list, news service NPR has received $5.3m from the Gates Foundation, Univision has received $5.9m, both the Centre for Investigative Reporting and the Bureau of Investigative Reporting have received $1m each. The New York Times ‘neediest cases’ charity fund was granted $1m. One should ask, how could the company question the great philanthropist after that? 

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has also stuck its money into the ‘fact-checking’ business. In January 2016, the Poynter Institute, ‘the home of the international fact-checking network’ and owners of Facebook Fact-Checker PolitiFact, announced that they were receiving a $380,000 grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to ‘fact-check claims about global health’. The institute’s president, Paul Franklin, said of the move: “We look forward to working with the Gates Foundation on this critical initiative”. I can be quite sure they did. Later Google, TikTok, and George Soros would also fund the institute.

The mass of money channelled through the Gates Foundation would make any ‘journalist’ in those very organisations thoroughly disinclined to question their funder. It also makes one wonder, what are these ‘public awareness’ initiatives really buying? Thus the problem arises that the very same organisations talking about the distress of ‘conspiracy theories’, are themselves funded by those accused of causing conspiracy. 

It is often said in the media, that we as a society be listening to the scientists. It would universally seem that most agree with the statement, and adopt the attitude. Unfortunately, it would also universally seem that nobody dares ask ‘who are the scientists? People rarely realize there is more than one dialogue outside the mainstream scientific doctrine. One might wonder why the mainstream media always point to one set of sources, those which reflect its authoritarian regime belief. First, that is hardly coincidence, second, the funding of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation does not restrict itself to the media.

All too often one sees this pattern of ‘for more information go to x‘… ‘according to x and y…’ Almost as if they were reading off a script, except x and y is replaced with a small handful of organizations, namely, the World Health Organisation, the NHS, and the CDC, as well as a thew other selected universities and agencies that reflect their doctrine. 

Like most institutes that reflect the mainstream doctrine, the World Health Organisation has received masses of money from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Currently, the Foundation’s website lists 565 different grants donated to the World Health Organisation since their first partnership in 1998. To name a few grants listed, in July 2008 the foundation donated $676m, in July 2018 they donated $121m, in September 2014 it donated $307m and the list goes on, totaling something around the $5bn mark.  

In May 2017, the World Health Organisation elected its new director-general to replace its former director-general, Margaret Chan. The electee was Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a Dr. in philosophy, and the former health minister of Ethiopia between 2005 and 2012, and Ethiopia’s minister of foreign affairs until 2016. Despite being director-general since just 2017, Tedros’s ties to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation go back over a decade.

As Ethiopia’s health minister, Ghebreyesus worked very closely with the Bill and Melinda Foundation. Between 2010 and 2014, the Gates Foundation committed $1.5bn towards child health and family planning in countries with high child mortality, namely India and Ethiopia, with $60m going towards Ethiopia. This was done as part of the ‘family planning’ organization. Tedros said at the time: ‘it’s a great pleasure and honor to take part in this landmark event on behalf of the government and the people of Ethiopia, let me start by thanking the government of the united kingdom, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

In October 2011, Gavi, ‘The Vaccine Alliance’ (created by Bill Gates), entered Ethiopia to ‘immunize’ 90 million children against pneumonia. Tedros said at the time: “This introduction represents a big step forward for our nation and I would like to express my sincere appreciation of GAVI’s continued support.” The initiative was part of a mechanism called AMC, Advanced Market Commitment. In a 2014 interview with The Takeaway, Bill Gates said: “Yeah, in Ethiopia’s case they have a great health minister – Tedros – who got the donors working together and built measurement systems.” 

Tedros Gebreyesus is also a member of the advisory council at the Gates-funded Fund for Global Health. The panel’s executive director is Ernest Loevinsohn, who formerly worked as head of global health policy at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Looking at the situation, it seems the relationship with Gates and Ghebrayesus (now director-general of the WHO) hasn’t weakened. In a World Health Organisation press conference last April, when confronted about “conspiracy theories around the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation”, Tedros responded:

“I just wanted to comment on Gates Foundation. I have known Bill and Melinda for many, many years now and have been working with them very closely, not as a DG , but when I was in Ethiopia working in the Ministry of Health and later on. Their commitment, I mean these two human beings, it’s amazing…”

“So that’s what I would like to assure you. And now during this COVID situation, their support is really big. And we’re getting all the support we need. And together, we believe we can turn the tide. And I would like to use this opportunity, not only to Bill and Melinda, but to the whole family for such an extraordinary commitment, and not only the family, to the foundation at large also, for the commitment and all that they are doing.”

As a partner with Facebook, the World Health Organization is also responsible for the regulation of health information online. According to the company, this includes the removal of posts that ‘deny the existence of the COVID-19 disease or pandemic’, ‘claim COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured’,’claim that wearing a face mask does not help prevent the spread of COVID-19′ and even the removal of ‘claims about the safety or serious side effects of COVID-19 vaccines, including: claims that COVID-19 vaccines kill or seriously harm people’. This is despite the fact that Public Health England’s yellow card reporting scheme has already listed hundreds of thousands of side effects. 

Furthermore, Facebook also added some examples of misinformation that they, ‘with experts such as the world health organization’ would target and remove from their platform. These include: “COVID-19 was predicted, including Event 201’s pandemic exercise in October 2019″, “building immunity by getting COVID-19 is safer than having the vaccine” and “These nurses who are taking a stand and refusing this worthless vaccine are my heroes!” Even government data may be removed such as: Uncovered: See the 632 reports made of people who died within a week of having the new COVID-19 vaccine”.

‘As the situation evolves, we continue to look at content on the platform, assess speech trends and engage with experts such as the World Health Organization (WHO), government health authorities and stakeholders from across the spectrum of people who use our service, and we will provide additional policy guidance when appropriate to keep the members of our community safe during this crisis.’ – Facebook

I have not yet here considered the effect of local affairs, for’ Britain and America’s health officials do not all come out of the World Health Organisation, but that doesn’t stop them being heavily associated with the tentacles of Gates ‘philanthropy’. To start in the United Kingdom, our Chief Medical Officer is Chris Whitty. Whitty’s current job involves advising the secretary of state for health and the prime minister on health policy, not least because neither are doctors. 

As well as being Cheif Medical Officer, Whitty also works as a physician at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Formerly in the school, he worked as the director of the Malaria Centre, this included during 2007, when the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded $39.7m towards the malaria centre to ‘identify how best to optimise the delivery and cost-effectiveness of combination drug treatment for malaria’. As the principal investigator at the ACT Consortium, Whitty oversaw the malaria research for the program.

Money isn’t the only thing tying Whitty and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, in meetings revealed by the British government, Whitty is listed as being in meetings with the Gates Foundation in September and October 2019. One is described as a ‘global health roundtable’  and the other as ‘introductory meetings with teams’. Unfortunately, Whitty’s other meetings publications remain limited. Chris Whitty is also listed on the World Health Organisation’s ‘executive board’, representing the UK.

Coming from a university that has received in whole over $290m from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, it is no surprise that Whitty is not new to some of the names listed earlier. In 2014, for example, he published a paper on Ebola transmission with Jeremy Farrar; director of the Wellcome Trust, Neil Ferguson; the epidemiologist responsible for mass lockdowns and Peter Piot; the director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, former undersecretary of the United Nations and a former senior fellow at the Gates Foundation. This is the same Christopher Whitty who would later say that things will not go back to normal until spring 2022.  

Over in the United States, health is overwhelmingly directed by Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Fauci is not new to the business either, having been the advisor to every president since Ronald Reagan. Unlike other public figures, Fauci and Gates keep no secret of their relationship with each other. “It’s a helpful collaboration, which we’ve always had”, Gates said during an interview. According to Gates, the two often have phone calls.

In November last year, Bill Gates started a podcast, his first guest was Fauci, who spoke with him very casually. Fauci ended with: “Thank you Bill, it was great to be with you, Bill and I do this without the microphones, every couple of weeks we touch bases, and compare notes and learn from each other so it’s great to see you Bill.”

″[Fauci] and I were talking about the critical path in our last call and how to orchestrate Gates Foundation resources and government resources to get to the bottom of those questions.” 

“We’re talking a lot about these variants and what that will do,”

Earlier this June, a series of freedom of information requests were made to the NIAID, asking to see Anthony Fauci’s involvement with Bill Gates. Some of the requests revealed emails with Emilio Emini, the former vice president of vaccine R&D at Pfizer, who now works as the director of HIV at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. One email in April 2020 went as such:                  

From: Emilio Emini 

Sent: Thursday, April 2, 2020 9:59 AM

“Tony – I received a note from Trevor and Bill that they connected with you yesterday and they asked me to reach out. I’ve taken on the role of coordinating the foundation’s contributions to global COVID vaccine efforts, in particular for those approaches that are (or soon will be) in early development. There’s an obvious need for coordination among the various funders or the focus we need to have given the state of the pandemic will become lost through uncoordinated activities.” 

“Bill tells me that you will take on a central role in coordinating BARDA’s funding to the ongoing efforts. And, of course, there are the NIH/VRC activities. I’m reaching out to ask how we can coordinate each other’s activities…”

“As a next step we can connect 1:1 briefly or you can pass this on to an appropriate member of your staff.”

All in all, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has donated over $19.8m to Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, and over $500m to the Foundation of the National Institute of Health. History, however goes back quite far. Anthony Fauci, for example, also sat upon the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation’s ‘Global Grand Challenges ‘ scientific board between 2003-2010. Other members included Tadataka Yamada; former chairman of R&D at the GlaxoSmithKline, now president of Global Health at the Gates Foundation, William Foege; senior fellow at the Gates Foundation, and Mark Walport; former director of the Wellcome Trust.

Fauci also worked with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in a collaboration between the NIAID, the Gates Fdn, the World Health Organization, and UNICEF called the ‘decade of vaccine collaboration’.The co-chair of the collaboration was Christopher Elias; at the time the director of PATH, but two years later would become the president of Global Development at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and would organize event 201.

The collaboration’s leadership council included Anthony Fauci, Magaret Chan; then director of the WHO, Anthony Lake; Director of UNICEF, and Tadataki Yamada; mentioned above as the former director of R&D at GSK, and a senior fellow at the BMGF.  The Gates Foundation described the collaboration as such:

‘The Global Vaccine Action Plan will enable greater coordination across all stakeholder groups – national governments, multilateral organizations, civil society, the private sector and philanthropic organizations — and will identify critical policy, resource, and other gaps that must be addressed to realize the life-saving potential of vaccines.’ 

In 2019, the NIH and the Bill and Melinda Gates founded collaborated to ‘develop gene-based HIV treatment’, both investing $100m each to the initiative. “By working with the NIH and scientists across Africa, we aim to ensure these approaches will improve the lives of those most in need and bring the incredible promise of gene-based treatments to the world of public health,” said Trevor Mundel, president of Global Health at the Gates Foundation. 

Those who have not yet grasped the size of the Gates influence, that is, most people who have not read such a report, no doubt, are looking at the dots instead of the picture. Philanthropy has gone beyond all the points I have touched here. Those who think I have any intention of stopping here clearly have not yet understood. I could not remotely finish this article with every detail of Gates, but I can point out that he also has mass ties to the vaccine program.

In January 2020, Oxford University, which has received $375m from the Gates Foundation, announced they were partnering with AstraZeneca to develop a vaccine for Covid-19. According to the university, the Oxford Vaccine is led by six key scientists: Andrew Pollard, Catherine Green, Sarah Gilbert, Adrian Hill, Sandy Douglass, and Theresa Lambe.

To begin with, Andrew Pollard is the director of the Oxford Vaccine Group in the department of paediatrics at Oxford. As a member and the director of the vaccine group, Pollard’s department has received millions on the development of vaccines from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Between 2013-2016, for example, Pollard was part of a typhoid initiative funded by $37m from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Wellcome Trust. 

Between 2013-2017 Pollard’s institution received grants from the Gates-created GAVI, ‘The Vaccine Alliance’, to study infant pneumococcal vaccines in Nepal. According to the Wellcome Trust, Pollard’s team was also granted $1.1m at the start of 2021 by Wellcome to study the immune response to ‘Sars-Cov2’, at the same time, the team was also granted $2.1m to study the efficacy of typhoid vaccines and many millions more in previous years. Pollard is also a member of the World Health Organisation’s Scientific Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE).  

Another vaccine leader, Adrian Hill, director of Oxford’s Jenner Institute, was director of a $2.9m initiative in 2013 to advance tuberculosis vaccines, granted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Sarah Gilbert, a professor of vaccinology, also works at the Jenner Institute. Bill Gates himself said in his 2016 Grand Challenges annual meeting:

“Adrian Hill, at Oxford, is another example of the UK’s remarkable scientific brain trust. Hill has devoted his career to developing a vaccine against malaria. But more than that, his research holds promise for a new class of vaccines that uses the body’s cellular immunity, rather than antibodies, to attack diseases.”

“To aid in this effort, Wellcome – in partnership with the governments of Norway and India, our foundation, and the World Economic Forum – announced the creation of a new public-private Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations to work on vaccines against pathogens of epidemic potential. This new coalition will partner with the UK Vaccines Network funded by the UK Department of Health.” 

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hasn’t just put millions towards the production of vaccines through Oxford University, but it is also responsible for funding the vaccine safety trials behind the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine. In reports on the Oxford University website, the National Insititute for Health, and the Lancet, each study concludes with:

Funding: UK Research and Innovation, National Institutes for Health Research (NIHR), Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Lemann Foundation, Rede D’Or, Brava and Telles Foundation, NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre, Thames Valley and South Midland’s NIHR Clinical Research Network, and AstraZeneca. 

Of course, it should also be said that the thirst three funders on the list, UK Research and Innovation, the National Institute for Health and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness, have collectively received millions from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. 

It’s not often people know that the Covid-19 vaccine trials, among everything else, are funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. They say, but what about the NHS approval? It is FDA approved as well. Yes, history would grant that. Unfortunately, those who are starting to understand the size of this, should by now know what I am about to say. The government studies are also influenced, in part, by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

In the United Kingdom, our vaccines and health care is regulated by MHRA, the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency, first founded in 2003. Between 2013 and 2019, the chief executive of MHRA was Ian Hudson, who formerly worked as a vice president as GlaxoSmithKline Beecham. In 2019, after retiring as chief executive of MHRA, Hudson became a senior advisor at the Bill and Melinda Gates and Foundation, making way for MHRA’s new chief executive, June Raine. 

As of currently, despite the MHRA being funded by the British government, the Gates Foundation has committed $7.4m in funding towards the agency. Furthermore, in April 2019, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has paid £5,000 for MHRA chief executive Dr June Raine to visit their headquarters for four days in Seattle. Dr Raine is also a member of the World Health Organisation’s committee of medicinal products. 

For the United Kingdom to speed up their vaccine safety and rollout, the government created the UK Vaccine Taskforce. Its first chair was Kate Bingham, until her resignation in June 2021. In May 2020, according to government documents, Bingham joined Prime Minister Boris Johnson for a video meeting with Bill Gates. According to gov.uk, they ‘discussed the UK’s contribution to helping countries around the world tackle coronavirus and the important work of the Gates Foundation in this area.’

Later on November 19th 2020, Bingham became a public attendee at the Gates created Grand Challenges Annual Meeting, where, by video, she exchanged with Bill Gates himself. Other government publications also show that the Prime Minister had a meeting with the Gates Foundation on the 29th of January 2021. This was described as to discuss ‘shared priorities to tackle climate change and COVID-19’

Fortunately for Gates, his influence is global. On the 4th of June, Gavi ‘the vaccine alliance’, which was co founded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Wellcome Trust, and the World Economic Forum, hosted a ‘global vaccine summit’. Among its attendees were Tedros Ghebreyesus; director-general of the WHO, Ursual Van Der Layen; president of the European Commission, Antonio Gutierrez; director of the United Nations, Angela Merkel; chancellor of Germany, Justin Trudeau; Prime minister of Canada, He Li Keqiang; premier of the state council of the Republic of China, Bill Gates; chair of the Gates Foundation and co-founder of Gavi, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Boris Johnson, who opened the four-hour summit, and closed the summit, announced that the British Government was pledging $8.6bn towards the Gavi Alliance:

“Together, we have replenished this alliance, securing – and I’m the lucky one that gets to make the big announcement – a fantastic $8.8bn for Gavi’s vital work over the next five years. And I want to say a particular thank you to Bill and Melinda Gates for their generosity, their philanthropy, yet again, and their continued leadership in humanity’s battle against disease.”

“So as we conclude today, let us unite to stop a disease like coronavirus causing such devastation ever again. Just as we have great military alliances like NATO – and I hope that those of you not in NATO know what I mean – where countries collaborate on building their collective military defense, so we now need that same spirit of collaboration and collective defense against the common enemy of disease. It will require a new international effort to co-operate on the surveillance and sharing of information that can underpin a global alert system so we can rapidly identify any future outbreak. And it will need a radical scaling up of our global capacity to respond, exactly as Bill has set out.”

The Vaccine Summit included a total of 62 representatives from differnt countries, including 42 heads of state each funding the organization and praising Bill Gates for his work. Later the Rockefeller University granted $5m, Mastercard granted £1m, TikTok granted $10m, and Reed Hastings the CEO of Netflix granted $30m, later Hastings would also fund $3m to the Gavin Newson election. 

In the United States, vaccines are, and only recently have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Compared to usual funding, the Gates Foundation is relatively humble with the FDA, donating just $990,00. The two also work rather closely. In 2017, for example, the FDA and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation launched a collaboration to ‘improve global public health by fostering medical product innovation, and enabling medical product development, including medical countermeasures.’

As for vaccines, these are regulated by an FDA department called the Office of Vaccine Research and Review. The director (during the vaccine’s approval) at the office for vaccines and review is Marion Gruber. Gruber was formerly a member of the World Health Organizations’s global advisory committee on vaccine safety, and a member of the Gates Foundation’s CEPI – coalition for epidemic preparedness. The deputy director of the Office for Vaccine Research is Philip R. Krause. According to Kraus’s LinkedIn page, where he follows just Bill Gates and Melinda Gates, and takes an interest in GAVI and the Gates Foundation, Krause is a member of the WHO’s R&D Blueprint Working Group on COVID-19, a Hoc advisor to the World Health Organization, and a member of the Gates-created Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness, CEPI. 

It’s not often people consider the mass influence of philanthropy and scientists, in part because only when the lines between each scientist and technocrat are connected, then the resemblance of the network becomes clear. In August 2016, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation founded CEPI: the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness. It is fair to say that the coalition was beyond prepared for a pandemic, which can be clearly seen by a glance at its board. Notice the pattern. 

The CEPI’s foundation board includes some of the following figures: Jeremy Farrar; the director of the welcome trust, a member of the International Advisory Board alongside Christian Drosten and Christopher Elias (from Event 201), a co-author with Neil Ferguson and Chris Whitty. Another member is Peter Piot, the former director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the former undersecretary of the United Nations, Chair of WHO Ebola Committee, Associate director of AIDS at WHO, a Co-author with Jeremy Farrar, Neil Ferguson, and Chris Whitty, a former senior fellow at the Gates Foundation, and Ursula Van Der Layen’s ‘special advisor’ on Covid-19.

Another member is Rajeev Venkayya, the former special assistant to President Bush, a Senior Director for Biodefense at the White House, former Director of Vaccine Delivery at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, responsible for the foundation’s vaccine introduction the foundation’s representative on the Gavi Board, a principal investigator for a 5-year research grant from the National Institutes of Health, and life member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Continuing on CEPI’s board is Azhra Ghani; a professor at Imperial College London who produced the lockdown computer models with Neil Ferguson. Another member, Christian Droston from the Institute of Virology, Charité, who invented the first-ever PCR test for ‘covid-19’. Another member, George Gao, director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, mentioned earlier as a member at Event 201. Philip Krause, the Deputy Director of Vaccine Research at US Food and Drug Administration. Peter Dull from Integrated Clinical Vaccine Development, Vaccine Development & Surveillance, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Such members may differ in that they are from different countries or representing different parties, but they are all alike in that they are all connected to each other on this board, and generally connected to each other throughout history. Here are some of many examples:

Peter Piot, the director (until recently) of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has long ties with the WHO’s Director-General Tedros Ghebereyesus, once saying “Tedros has strong ties with our School, and we worked closely with him during his time as Minister of Health of Ethiopia.” In February 2020, Peter Piot (UK) hosted a talk with Chrisitan Drosten (Germany) called the ‘global lecture series’. Drosten, who created the first Covid-19 PCR protocol has published papers on the response to Covid-19 with George Gao, the director of the Chinese CDC, Gao was also an attendee at Event 201. Another member at Event 201 was Christopher Elias, a president at the Gates Foundation, Elias is also a member of the International Advisory Board on Global Health, with Christian Drosten and Jeremy Farrar, the director of the Wellcome Trust. Jeremy Farrar, who co-founded CEPI, with the Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum, is a former publisher of Ebola studies with Chris Whitty and Neil Ferguson. Neil Ferguson recently described Christian Drosten as a ‘friend of his’, his department received hundreds of thousands to create the virus epidemiology models that propelled the west into lockdown. This was funded by the Gates Foundation, which is created and funded by Bill Gates. The same Gates who has former Pfizer executives working at his foundation, and who described Peter Piot as one of his greatest inspirations. It’s the same network of people. And the circle goes round. 

Beyond all the fear, the coercion, the masks, came what everyone outside of the confines of the establishment always knew to be coming: digital passports. And yet again the generous, philanthropic funding of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation had long made its way here. Four years before the start of the pandemic, in 2016, an alliance was made called ID2020. The organization’s founding partners were Gavi, the Gates Vaccine Alliance, Microsoft (owned by Gates), and the Rockefeller Foundation. The main concern of the organization lies around the fact that one billion people around the world do not have access to digital identities, causing serious problems for tracking people’s health history, and practically anything else. It is no surprise then that the organization’s board includes Seth Berkley, the CEO of Gavi and a member of CEPI. 

One could easily mistake digital identities and vaccine passports as a solution to the ‘coronavirus’ pandemic, except ID2020 and Gavi have long been planning the initiative. In a 2018 report by ID2020, the company wrote: 

‘Moving from easily lost or damaged paper health cards to an accessible digital form would reduce the burden associated with tracking a child’s vaccines and eliminate redundant or unnecessary paperwork. Digital child health cards can improve coverage rates and vaccine compliance by prompting parents to bring their children in for necessary subsequent doses.

And for Gavi and its international partners, digital ID technology provides a basis for a system of verifiable proofs and accurate aggregate data that interoperates with other identity management systems, negating the need for each organization to independently identify beneficiaries.

Because immunization is conducted in infancy, providing children with a digital child health card would give them a unique, portable digital identity early in life. And as children grow, their digital child health card can be used to access secondary services, such as primary school, or ease the process of obtaining alternative credentials. Effectively the child health card becomes the first step in establishing a legal, broadly recognized identity.’

Unfortunately for Gates, at the time these health records were restricted to poor nations where such the excuse of tracking Malaria and Ebola immunization could quite easily be believed as his foundational intention. And so, as expected, the pandemic ushered in the perfect excuse for the digital identity revolution to take place in the west. Alternatively, ID2020 described it as such:

‘While the pandemic has made it infeasible for us to gather in person, it has brought digital ID technology into the public consciousness and given new urgency to our collective work.’

To aid the west in this transition, in February last year ID2020 created the Good Health Pass Collaborative, a ‘cross-sector initiative to create a blueprint for interoperable digital health pass systems that will help restore global travel systems and help restart the global economy’. As of now, the Good Health Pass has already secured itself 125 members including Mastercard, IBM, Entrust, and ID2020. 

The Good Health Pass Collaborative has established the following principles as a critical first step toward an interoperable, trusted framework and ecosystem for the issuance, use, and management of COVID-19 test and vaccination credentials for international travel.

The great philanthropist may have billions to give away, but there comes a point at which his influence cannot be excluded. For what we have here, is a range of scientists and organizations from different countries, different institutes, different governments, except just two things make them alike. One, it seems almost always that this selected group always pushes society in the same direction. Neil Ferguson, who threatened that Sweden’s refusal to lockdown could have severe impacts on health (it never did!), is now the same man saying that children between the age of 12 to 15 (of which just under 30 have died throughout the entire pandemic) should be taking the vaccine. The second thing this network almost always seems to share in common is its connection to the Bill and Melinda Gates, foundation, the Gavi Alliance or CEPI. 

And just like his Event 201 scenario, here we have the ‘great philanthropist’, who is always ahead of the game. If it is not too disrespectful, one might even ask, who is it that doesn’t have connections to Gates, or one of his many philanthropic organizations.

The establishment has walked into the room, and the door has clicked shut.

The longest article I’ve read in a long time, but clearly very detailed, with the alterior motives blindingly obvious.
