Who is Bill Gates? A software developer? A businessman? A philanthropist? global health professional? Or even a modern superhero?
This once purely academic question becomes a very real question for those who are beginning to realize that Gates‘ unimaginable wealth has been used to take control of every corner of public health, medical research, and vaccine development. And now that we are faced with the exact problem that Gates has been talking about for years, we will soon find that this software developer with no medical training will use this wealth to take control of the fate of billions of people.
The story of how Bill Gates monopolized global health
Bill Gates is not a public health expert, but he is still being heard all the time. He is not a doctor, epidemiologist, or researcher in the field of infectious diseases. Yet somehow he has become a central figure in the lives of billions of people who presume to dictate the medical interventions required to „return the world to normal“. Bill Gates‘ transition from computer king to global health czar is as remarkable as it is educational, and it tells us a lot about where we are going when the world plunges into a crisis like we have never seen it before.
For years, Bill Gates was known to the general public as the nerdy inventor of the Windows computer operating system. What not everyone knows : Gates ripped off the code for his first operating system, MS-DOS, which he sold to IBM in 1980, from CP / M, Gary Kildall’s operating system. He owed the deal to his mother, Mary Maxwell Gateswho at the time had business relationships with IBM’s chairman John Opel. Of course, MS-DOS later became Microsoft Windows, which made Bill Gates the richest person in the world. But actually Gary Kildall should have been in his place. The latter sued IBM once, but the agreed agreement ultimately brought him nothing. The shock of someone else making billions on a copy of their operating system plunged him into depression and alcoholism, which ultimately resulted in his wife’s divorce and a deadly bar brawl in 1994. And so the unscrupulous Gates became the immortal tech guru while Kildall became an almost forgotten footnote of the personal computer revolution. Gates didn’t let himself through on the way up either Stop competition disputes . The US government accused Microsoft of a monopoly position in the ‚browser war‘ in 2001 because every Windows operating system automatically came with an ‚Internet Explorer‘ browser. Windows was programmed in such a way that problems arose when removing IE and installing, for example, NetScape.
But once reviled for the enormous wealth and monopoly power that his virus-contaminated software brought him, Gates is now celebrated as a visionary who uses this wealth and this power for the benefit of mankind.
Klaus Schwab: “When a book is written about THE entrepreneur of the 21st century in the 22nd century, [. . .] I’m sure that the person these historians most likely think of is Bill Gates. ”(Applause) ( Video: Davos Annual Meeting 2008 )
“I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that Bill Gates is – I would argue – the most momentous person of our generation. I’m serious. „(Video: Bill Gates Talks Philanthropy, Microsoft, and Taxes | DealBook )
The process by which this reinvention of Gates‘ public image took place is not mysterious. It’s the same process by which every billionaire has revived his public image since John D. Rockefeller hired Ivy Ledbetter Lee to turn him from the boss of Standard Oil Hydra into the benevolent old man who hands out pennies to strangers .
In a nutshell, John D. Rockefeller knew that in order to gain public admiration, he had to perform and give them what they want: money. He devoted hundreds of millions of dollars of his vast oil monopoly fortune to building institutions that he claimed served the public good. The General Education Board. The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. The Rockefeller Foundation.
Similarly, Bill Gates has spent much of the past two decades transforming himself from software magnate into benefactor of humanity through his own Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In fact, Gates has surpassed Rockefeller’s legacy, as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has long dwarfed the Rockefeller Foundation as the largest private foundation in the world, with $ 46.8 billion in assets on the books they declared in theirs Managed program areas of global health and development, global growth, and global political advocacy.
And like Rockefeller, Gates‘ transformation was supported by a well-funded PR campaign. Gone are the theatrical tricks of the PR pioneers – the ubiquitous ice cream cones from Gates‘ mentor Warren Buffett are the last remaining refusers of the old Rockefeller trick of handing out pennies. No, Gates has turned his public image into that of a modern saint through an even simpler tactic: he buys good publicity.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation spends tens of millions of dollars annually on media partnerships and broadly sponsors coverage of its program areas. Gates funded:
- The Guardian’s Global Development website .
- NPR’s global health reporting .
- Gates funds Our World in Data website , which tracks the latest statistics and research on the coronavirus pandemic.
- Gates funds the BBC’s coverage of global health and development issues, both through its organization BBC Media Action and through the BBC itself .
- Gates sponsors global health coverage on ABC News.
When NewsHour and Jim Lehrer won a $ 3.5 million Gates Foundation grant to set up a special unit to cover global health issues, NewsHour communications chief Rob Flynn was asked about the potential conflict of interest that such unit would have in reporting on issues in which the Gates Foundation itself is involved. „In some ways, you could say that in global health these days there aren’t very many things to touch that don’t have some sort of Gates tentacle,“ Flynn replied.
In fact, it would be almost impossible to find an area of global health that has remained untouched by the tentacles of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
It was Gates who sponsored the meeting that led to the creation of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, a global public-private partnership bringing together government sponsors and large pharmaceutical companies with specific goals of creating „healthy markets for vaccines and other immunization products.“ . As a founding partner of the alliance, the Gates Foundation provided $ 750 million in seed funding and has committed over $ 4.1 billion in commitments to the group .
Gates stellte das Startkapital zur Verfügung, mit dem der Globale Fonds zur Bekämpfung von AIDS, Tuberkulose und Malaria geschaffen wurde, eine öffentlich-private Partnerschaft, die als Finanzierungsvehikel für staatliche AIDS-, Tuberkulose- und Malariaprogramme fungiert.
Als 2012 eine öffentlich-private Partnerschaft von Regierungen, Weltgesundheitsorganisationen und 13 führenden Pharmaunternehmen zusammenkam, „um den Fortschritt bei der Beseitigung oder Kontrolle von 10 vernachlässigten Tropenkrankheiten zu beschleunigen“, gab es die Gates-Stiftung mit 363 Millionen Dollar Unterstützung.
Als 2015 die Global Financing Facility für Frauen, Kinder und Jugendliche ins Leben gerufen wurde, um Milliarden von Dollar an öffentlichen und privaten Finanzmitteln für globale Gesundheits- und Entwicklungsprogramme zu mobilisieren, gab es die Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation als Gründungspartner mit einem Beitrag von 275 Millionen Dollar.
Als 2017 auf dem World Economic Forum in Davos die Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations ins Leben gerufen wurde, um Impfstoffe gegen neu auftretende Infektionskrankheiten zu entwickeln, gab es die Gates Foundation mit einer ersten Injektion von 100 Millionen Dollar. CEPI ist ein Zusammenschluss der Regierungen Deutschlands, Norwegen und Japan zusammen mit der Gates Foundation. Der deutsche Impfstoff-Forscher CureVac, der gerade an einer COVID-Impfung arbeitet, wird von Gates über CEPI finanziert.
Die Beispiele gehen weiter und weiter. Die Fingerabdrücke der Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation sind auf jeder wichtigen globalen Gesundheitsinitiative der letzten zwei Jahrzehnte zu sehen. Und über die auffälligen, milliardenschweren globalen Partnerschaften hinaus steht die Stiftung hinter Hunderten kleinerer länder- und regionsspezifischer Zuschüsse – 10 Millionen Dollar zur Bekämpfung einer Heuschreckenplage in Ostafrika oder 300 Millionen Dollar zur Unterstützung der Agrarforschung in Afrika und Asien -, die sich zu Verpflichtungen in Milliardenhöhe summieren.
Es überrascht daher nicht, dass – weit über die 250 Millionen Dollar hinaus, die die Gates-Stiftung für den „Kampf“ gegen das Coronavirus zugesagt hat – an jedem Aspekt der aktuellen Coronavirus-Pandemie Organisationen, Gruppen und Einzelpersonen beteiligt sind, die in direktem Zusammenhang mit der Gates-Finanzierung stehen.
From the beginning, the World Health Organization has steered the global response to the current pandemic. From her initial monitoring of the Wuhan outbreak and her statement in January that there was no evidence of person-to-person transmission, to her live media briefings and technical guidelines for country-level planning and other matters WHO was the body that set the guidelines and recommendations for the global response to this outbreak.
But the World Health Organization itself is largely dependent on funds from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The latest WHO donor report shows that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the organization’s second largest donor after the United States government. The Gates Foundation single-handedly contributes more to the World Health Organization than Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Russia and the UK combined. See ‚pdf 1‘ at the end of the article.
In addition, the current director general of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, like Bill Gates himself, is actually not a doctor at all, but the controversial former health minister of Ethiopia, who was accused of covering up three cholera outbreaks in the country during his tenure. Before joining WHO, he was chairman of the Gates-founded Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and was on the board of Gates-founded Gavi, the Vaccination Alliance and the Gates-funded Stop TB Partnership .
The current round of lockdowns and restrictive residence orders in Western countries was decided on the basis of alarming models that predict millions of deaths in the United States and hundreds of thousands in the UK.
The work of two research groups was instrumental in the decision of the UK and US governments to introduce wide-ranging bans, and therefore governments around the world. The first group, Imperial College’s COVID-19 research team, released a report on March 16 that predicted up to 500,000 deaths in the UK and 2.2 million deaths in the US, if tough government action was not taken. See ‚pdf 2‘ at the end of the article.
The second group, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in Bill Gates ‚home state Washington, helped provide data that confirmed the first White House estimates of the virus‘ effects, which have been revised downwards over time .
Unsurprisingly, the Gates Foundation donated significant sums of money to both groups. This year alone, the Gates Foundation has donated $ 79 million to Imperial College, and in 2017 the Foundation announced a $ 279 million investment in IHME to expand its health data collection and modeling work.
Anthony Fauci, meanwhile, has become the face of the US government’s coronavirus response, echoing Bill Gates‘ statement that the country will only „return to normal“ when „a good vaccine“ can be found for safety to ensure the population.
„If you want to get to the pre-coronavirus. . . They know that may never happen, in the sense of the fact that the threat is there. But I believe with the therapies that will go online and with the fact that I am confident that we will get a good vaccine over a period of time, that we will never have to go back to where we are now. „
In addition to their frequent collaborations and collaborations in the past, Fauci has direct links to the projects and funding of Gates. In 2010 he was appointed to the Leadership Council of the Gates – a Gates-founded “ Decade of Vaccines “ project to implement a global vaccine action plan – a project for which Gates provided $ 10 billion. And last October, just as the current pandemic began, the Gates Foundation announced a $ 100 million donation to the National Institute of Health to support HIV research at Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, among other things support.
Also in October last year, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation partnered with the World Economic Forum and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security to organize Event 201 , a table-top exercise to measure the economic and societal impact of a global coronavirus pandemic. I have already reported on this several times.
Given the incredible reach that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s tentacles exude to every nook and cranny of global healthcare markets, it should come as no surprise that the foundation has been closely involved in every phase of the current pandemic crisis. In fact, Gates has only used the fortunes of his supremacy in the software market to place himself in a similar position in the world of global health.
The whole process was wrapped in the cloak of selfless philanthropy, but the foundation is not structured as a charitable endeavor. Instead, it retains a dual structure: The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation distributes money to the beneficiaries, but a separate entity, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust, manages the foundation’s assets. The interests of these two bodies often overlap, and as has often been stated in the past, the donations made by the foundation often directly benefit the value of the foundation’s assets:
“And billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda’s charity has come under fire after it became known that it significantly increased its stake in agribusiness giant Monsanto to over $ 23 million. Critics say the investment in Monsanto contradicts the stated commitment of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to help farmers and sustainable development in Africa. ”( Gates Foundation Criticized for Increasing Monsanto Investment )
This is not a purely theoretical conflict of interest. Gates is portrayed as a hero for donating $ 35.8 billion worth of Microsoft stock to the foundation, but his „Decade of Vaccines“ has doubled his net worth, from $ 54 billion to 106.4 Billion dollars.
The Rockefeller story provides an instructive model for this vision of the philanthropist turned tycoon. When faced with a public backlash, Rockefeller helped advance the creation of a system of private foundations related to his business interests. Using his unprecedented oil monopoly fortune to control much of public life, Rockefeller was able to kill two birds with one stone: to shape society in the best interests of his family, even as he became a beloved figure in the public eye.
Similarly, Bill Gates transformed his software empire into a global health, development, and education empire by directing the course of investment and research and creating healthy markets for vaccines and other immunization products. And like Rockefeller, Gates has transformed himself from the feared and vilified head of a formidable hydra into a kind old man who generously gives his wealth back to the public.
But not everyone fell for this PR trick. Even The Lancet saw this worrying shift from software monopoly to healthcare monopoly back in 2009, when the extent of this Gates-led monopoly became apparent to everyone:
„The first guiding principle of the [Bill & Melinda Gates] Foundation is that it is“ driven by the interests and passions of the Gates family. “ An annual letter from Bill Gates sums up these passions and references newspaper articles, books, and random events that shaped the foundation’s strategy. For such a large and influential investor in global health, is such a capricious governance principle good enough? ( What has the Gates Foundation done for global health?)
Gates‘ decisions have controlled the flow of billions of dollars, forged international partnerships that pursue far-reaching agendas, and ensured the creation of „healthy markets“ for the big pharma vaccine makers. And now, as we can see, his choices are shaping the overall global response to the coronavirus pandemic.
As we’ve seen, the Gates Foundation tentacles have invaded every nook and cranny of the public health arena. Billions of dollars in funding and entire political agendas are under the control of this man, an unelected, unaccountable software developer with no medical research experience or training.
And nowhere is Gates‘ control over public health more evident than in the area of vaccines.
Gates plan to vaccinate the whole world
Gates started the vaccine decade with a $ 10 billion pledge.
Gates helped found Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, with the goal of developing „healthy markets“ for vaccine manufacturers.
Gates helped found Gavi with a $ 1 billion donation in 2011 and will contribute $ 4.1 billion over the „Vaccine Decade .“
One of the main areas of funding for the Gates Foundation is “ Vaccine Development and Monitoring, “ which has resulted in billions of dollars being poured into vaccine development, a place at the table to develop vaccine campaigns in countries around the world, and the opportunity to shape public thinking around Bill Gates‘ favorite project over the past five years: preparing for rapid development and delivery of vaccines in the event of a global pandemic. As if he couldn’t wait any longer.
„Leider dauert es viele Jahre, bis ein völlig neuer Impfstoff entwickelt ist. Das Design, die Sicherheitsüberprüfung, die Herstellung; all diese Dinge bedeuten, dass eine Epidemie schon sehr weit verbreitet sein kann, bevor dieses Werkzeug zur Verfügung steht. Und so hat die globale Gesundheitsgemeinschaft nach Ebola viel darüber gesprochen, einschließlich einer neuartigen Impfstoffplattform namens DNA/RNA, die die Dinge beschleunigen sollte.
Und so besteht diese Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Initiative [sic], CEPI, aus drei Ländern – Japan, Norwegen, Deutschland – und zwei Stiftungen – Wellcome Trust, mit denen wir in vielen Bereichen zusammenarbeiten, und unsere Stiftung, die Gates Foundation -, die sich zusammengeschlossen haben, um … zu finanzieren … und tatsächlich versuchen, diese Plattform zu nutzen und einige Impfstoffe herzustellen. Und das würde uns in der Zukunft helfen.“ (Video: Bill Gates at the World Economic Forum)
Angesichts von Gates‘ Mammut-Investitionen in Impfstoffe in den letzten zehn Jahren hat er darauf bestanden, dass . . .
„Die Dinge sich erst dann wirklich normalisieren werden, wenn wir einen Impfstoff haben, den wir praktisch der ganzen Welt zur Verfügung gestellt haben.“ (Video: Bill Gates über seine „Virus“-Warnung 2015)
. . . . ist natürlich kaum überraschend.
Überraschend ist, dass diese seltsam spezifische und ständig wiederholte Botschaft – dass wir nicht „zurück zur Normalität“ gehen werden, bevor wir in 18 Monaten einen Impfstoff erhalten – keinerlei wissenschaftliche Grundlage hat. Medizinische Forscher haben bereits eingeräumt, dass ein Impfstoff gegen SARS-CoV-2 möglicherweise nicht einmal möglich ist, was auf die Unfähigkeit der Forscher hinweist, irgendeine Art von Immunisierung gegen frühere Ausbrüche von Coronaviren wie SARS oder MERS zu entwickeln.
Aber selbst wenn ein solcher Impfstoff möglich wäre, bleiben ernsthafte Bedenken hinsichtlich der Sicherheit der Entwicklung, Erprobung und Bereitstellung eines solch „erstaunlichen Impfstoffs“ für „die ganze Welt“ in diesem bemerkenswert kurzen Zeitrahmen. Sogar Befürworter der Impfstoffentwicklung befürchten offen, dass der Ansturm, Milliarden von Menschen mit einem weitgehend ungetesteten, experimentellen Coronavirus-Impfstoff zu impfen, selbst gravierende Risiken für die Öffentlichkeit mit sich bringt.
Eines dieser Risiken ist die „Verstärkung der Krankheit“. Seit mehr als einem Jahrzehnt ist bekannt, dass die Impfung gegen einige Virusinfektionen – einschließlich Coronaviren – tatsächlich die Anfälligkeit für Virusinfektionen erhöht oder sogar Infektionen bei gesunden Impfstoffempfängern verursacht.
Anthony Fauci: „Nun zur Frage der Sicherheit. Etwas, von dem ich sichergehen möchte, dass die amerikanische Öffentlichkeit es versteht: Es geht nicht nur um die Sicherheit, wenn man jemandem eine Injektion gibt und er vielleicht eine eigenwillige Reaktion bekommt, er bekommt eine kleine allergische Reaktion, er bekommt Schmerzen. Damit ist Sicherheit verbunden. „Macht der Impfstoff das es ihnen schlechter geht?“ Und es gibt Krankheiten, bei denen man jemanden impfen kann, er wird mit dem infiziert, womit man ihn schützen will, allerdings verstärkt man die Infektion sogar noch.“ (Bemerkungen von Präsident Trump, Vizepräsident Pence und Mitgliedern der Coronavirus-Task Force in der Pressekonferenz (26. März))
Dies ist kein rein theoretisches Risiko. Wie Forscher, die versuchten einen Impfstoff für den ursprünglichen SARS-Ausbruch zu entwickeln, feststellten, machte der Impfstoff die Versuchstiere die ihm ausgesetzt waren tatsächlich anfälliger für die Krankheit.
Peter Hotez: Eines der Dinge, von denen wir nicht viel hören, sind die einzigartigen potenziellen Sicherheitsprobleme von Coronavirus-Impfstoffen. Dies wurde erstmals in den 1960er Jahren mit den Impfstoffen gegen das Respiratorische Syncytial-Virus festgestellt, und zwar in Washington mit dem NIH und dem Children’s National Medical Center. Einige der Kinder die den Impfstoff erhielten schnitten sogar noch schlechter ab und ich glaube es gab zwei Todesfälle als Folge dieser Studie. Denn was mit bestimmten Arten von Impfstoffen gegen Atemwegsviren passiert ist, dass man geimpft wird und wenn man dann tatsächlich mit dem Virus in Kontakt kommt erhält man diese Art von paradoxem Phänomen der Immunstärkung, und was – und wir verstehen die Grundlage dafür nicht ganz. Aber wir sind uns bewusst, dass dies für bestimmte Impfstoffe gegen Atemwegsviren ein echtes Problem darstellt. Das tötete das RSV-Programm jahrzehntelang. Jetzt greift die Gates Foundation es wieder auf. Aber als wir mit der Entwicklung von Coronavirus-Impfstoffen begannen – und unsere Kollegen – stellten wir bei Versuchstieren fest, dass sie anfingen einige der gleichen Immunpathologie zu zeigen die dem ähnelte was 50 Jahre zuvor passiert war. (Video: Hotez Coronavirus-Impfstoff-Sicherheitszeugnis)
Dieses spezielle Problem bei Coronavirus-Impfstoffen wird durch den willkürlichen und unwissenschaftlichen Zeitrahmen von 18 Monaten, auf den Gates für die Entwicklung des Impfstoffs besteht, noch verschärft. Um diese Frist einhalten zu können, werden die Impfstoffentwickler gedrängt, neue und weitgehend unerprobte Methoden für die Entwicklung ihrer experimentellen Impfungen zu verwenden, einschließlich DNA- und mRNA-Impfstoffe.
Mit „Warp-Geschwindigkeit“ einen neuen Impfstoff mit experimenteller Technologie zu entwickeln und dann Milliarden von Dosen in Massenproduktion herzustellen und zu verabreichen, die „im Grunde der ganzen Welt“ injiziert werden, bevor überhaupt angemessene Tests durchgeführt werden, ist eines der gefährlichsten Experimente in der Weltgeschichte – eines – das das Leben unzähliger Menschen verändern könnte.
Dass ein experimenteller Impfstoff, der auf eine völlig neue Art und Weise entwickelt und mit einem speziellen, verkürzten Testschema durchgezogen wurde, an Erwachsene, Kinder, Schwangere, Neugeborene und ältere Menschen gleichermaßen verabreicht werden sollte wäre in jeder anderen Situation undenkbar. Noch vor Monaten wäre es Wahnsinn gewesen vorzuschlagen das ein solcher Impfstoff auf der ganzen Welt verabreicht werden sollte. Aber jetzt wird die Öffentlichkeit aufgefordert, diese Prämisse ohne Frage zu akzeptieren.
Even Gates himself recognizes the inherent risks of such a project. But his concern is not about life, which will be irrevocably changed if vaccines cause harm to the population. Rather, it is about ensuring that pharmaceutical companies and researchers are granted legal immunity for such damage.
“You know, if we have one side effect in 10,000, that’s a lot more – 700,000 people who are going to have them. So it’s very, very difficult to really understand safety on a gigantic scale across all age groups – you know, pregnant, male, female, malnourished, existing comorbidities – it’s very, very difficult. And this actual decision, „OK, let’s go and give this vaccine to the whole world“, ah, the governments have to be involved because there will be a certain risk and compensation required before a decision can be made. „( Video: CNBC’s full interview with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates on the coronavirus pandemic and his work toward a vaccine)
As we saw earlier, in global health, what Bill Gates wants is what the world gets. So it should come as no surprise that immunity is already being worked on for big pharma vaccine manufacturers and vaccine program planners.
In the United States, the Department of Health issued a statement retrospectively providing „liability immunity for activities related to medical countermeasures against COVID-19“, including manufacturers, distributors and programmers of „all vaccines used to treat, diagnose, cure, prevent.“ or mitigation of COVID-19 „. The statement was made on March 17, but applies retrospectively to all activities through February 4, 2020, the day before the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced that it would fund treatment and develop new vaccines for COVID-19 provide.
The plan to inject every person in the world with an experimental vaccine is not a mistake in Bill Gates‘ proposed “Decade of Vaccines”. It is its climax.
The „Decade of Vaccines“ began with a Gates $ 3.6 million observational study of HPV vaccines in India that, according to a government investigation, violated the human rights of study participants with „gross violations“ of consent and adverse events that vaccine recipients suffered experienced, not reported properly. After the deaths of seven girls involved in the study were reported, a parliamentary inquiry concluded that the Gates-funded Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH) that conducted the study was participating in a program that should help create „healthy markets“ for GlaxoSmithKline and Merck,See ‚pdf 3‘ at the end of the article.
“If PATH had succeeded in including the HPV vaccine in the universal vaccination program of the affected countries, this would have generated unexpected profits for the manufacturer (s) through automatic sales, year after year, without any advertising or marketing expenditure. It is well known that once a person is accepted into the vaccination program, it becomes politically impossible to stop vaccination ”.
Chandra M. Gulhati, editor of the influential Monthly Index of Medical Specialties, commented , „It is shocking to see an American organization using stealth techniques to establish itself in India,“ and Samiran Nundy, editor-emeritus of the National Medical Journal of India , complained that „this is an obvious case of Indians being used as guinea pigs“.
Throughout the decade, India’s concern grew over the influence of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and its corporate partners on the country’s national immunization programs. In 2016, the steering group of the country’s National Health Mission held the government responsible for ensuring that the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization – the main body advising the government on all issues related to vaccination – was effectively bought out by the Gates Foundation.
As one member of the steering group noted, “The NTAGI Secretariat has been moved from the [Health] Ministry [Government] to the Office of the Public Health Foundation of India, and the 32 staff in that Secretariat are paid by the BMGF. There is a clear conflict of interest: on the one hand, the BMGF finances the secretariat, which is the highest decision-making body for vaccines, and on the other hand, it is a partner of the pharmaceutical industry at GAVI. This is unacceptable ”.
In 2017, the government responded by cutting all financial ties between the advisory group and the Gates Foundation.
Similar stories play out during the Gates Foundation’s „Vaccine Decade“.
There is the meningitis vaccine project founded and funded by the Gates Foundation that led to the development and testing of MenAfriVac, a vaccine for meningococcal meningitis for $ 0.50 a dose. The tests led to reports of 40 to 500 children suffering from seizures and convulsions that eventually became paralyzed.
In 2017, it was confirmed that the Gates- sponsored oral polio vaccine was indeed responsible for the majority of new polio cases, and follow-up research in 2018 shows that 80 percent of polio cases are now due to the vaccine.
In 2018, the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health concluded that between 2000 and 2017, over 490,000 people in India became paralyzed as a result of the oral polio vaccine. See ‚pdf 4‘ at the end of the article.
There’s even the WHO chief malaria, Dr. Arata Kochi, who complained in an internal memo that Gates‘ influence meant that the world’s leading malaria scientists are now „locked in a ‚cartel‘ in which their own research funding is linked to that of other members of the group“, and that the Foundation „stifles the debate about the best ways to treat and control malaria by giving priority only to methods that rely on new technology or develop new drugs“.
Kochi’s 2008 complaint highlights the most common criticism of the global health network that Gates has spun over the past two decades: that the public health industry has become a hype for and for Big Pharma and its partners for the benefit of big business.
At the time Kochi wrote his memo, Tachi Yamada was the executive director of the Gates Foundation’s global health program. Yamada left his position as chairman of research and development at GlaxoSmithKline to take on the position of the Gates Foundation in 2006 and left the foundation five years later to become chief medical and scientific officer at Takeda Pharmaceuticals. Yamada’s successor as head of Gates‘ global health program, Trevor Mundel , was a clinical researcher at Pfizer and Parke-Davis himself, and prior to joining the foundation, spent time as head of development at Novartis.
This use of foundation funds to set public policies to increase corporate profits is not a secret conspiracy. It is a completely open conspiracy.
When the Center for Global Development set up a working group to “Develop a Practical Approach to Addressing the Vaccine Problem,” it concluded that the best incentive for pharmaceutical companies to produce more vaccines for the developing world is for governments to promise Buying vaccines before they’re even developed. They titled their report „Making Markets for Vaccines“. See ‚pdf 5‘ at the end of the article.
ALICE ALBRIGHT: The project “Making Markets for Vaccines” was actually intended to address a problem that has existed for a long time, namely insufficient research and development budgets and investment capacity for the development and production of vaccines for the developing world . How can we create better incentives to encourage the pharmaceutical community – the vaccine community – to make products specifically for the developing world?
RUTH LEVINE: Michael Kramer, professor at Harvard, has been dealing with this problem for many years.
OWEN BARDER: He realized that if the rich countries of the world promised they would buy a malaria vaccine if someone made it, it would be an incentive for the pharmaceutical industry to do the research and development necessary to do so. But this idea was unknown. No government had committed itself to buying a product that did not yet exist. „( Video: Creating markets for vaccines)
When the first such Advanced Market Commitment was made in 2007 – a $ 1.5 billion promise to buy vaccines that were still to be produced from major pharmaceutical companies – the Gates Foundation was the only non-government sponsor.
If „introducing new vaccines“ and securing healthy markets for them was the goal of Gates‘ „Decade of Vaccines“, there can be no doubt that COVID-19 has spectacularly achieved that goal.
And there, at the center of this network, is the Gates Foundation, which is linked to all the major organizations, research institutions, international alliances and vaccine manufacturers involved in the current crisis.
Certainly the Gates – like the Rockefellers – have benefited from their years as „the most generous people on earth“. Strange as it may seem to those who do not understand the true nature of this monopoly cartel, for all these grants and pledges – tens of billions of dollars in commitments – the Gates‘ net personal fortune actually doubled during this „decade of vaccines.“ , from $ 50 billion to over $ 100 billion.
So is this all about money? Or something else? Is he really a cartoon superhero like some PR stunts suggest?
„Warren Buffet: Hello everyone.
The children: Mr. B.!
David Allen Jones: What is your secret mission about?
Buffet: It’s not my mission, it’s an idea that came from our good friend, Mr. Bill Gates.
Bill Gates: Hello, kids.
Child: The real, real, very personal Bill … Bill …
Other child: He’s saying we’re big fans, Mr. Gates. „
The strange fact that Bill Gates‘ hagiographs – PR hacks mostly used by large corporations funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – consistently portray this monotonous software developer as a cartoon superhero who owns his „superpower“ (very rich to be) uses to „save the planet“.
In the period shortly before the pandemic in particular, there was a noticeable amount of PR for Bill & Melinda Gates and their goals. This was probably necessary after Gates wanted to give the genocidal fascist Narendra Modi a humanitarian award and it came out that Gates supported technological research under the direction of the sex ring child dealer Jeffrey Epstein with two million dollars, and the university wanted to cover this up . This was followed in September 2019 by a 3h (!) Long Netflix PR documentary about him, in which only his philanthropic activities were advertised and touted. Followed by a Forbes interview in October 2019 in which Bill Gates was asked with deference, “ What is your superpower?“ This narrative was then picked up by several media outlets. It’s not new though. ABC News reported back in 2009:
“Behind closed doors on this New York campus, a secret gathering of some of the most powerful people in the world: Gates, Buffet, Bloomberg, Winfrey. It was like … well, it was like the „super friends“. „(Elite Billionaires Meet in Secret, Good Morning America, ABC News (video no longer online))
But these cartoon-fueled puff pieces reveal more than they know about Gates and the other mega-rich philanthropists. They try to idolize them: they reveal that the idea of the selfless billionaire do-gooder is such an incredible fiction that it is only suitable for cartoon fare on Saturday mornings.
As we’ve seen in the role of Bill Gates as the global health king, the Gates family’s seemingly selfless generosity through their eponymous foundation has in fact greatly increased their own wealth, with Bill Gates‘ personal fortune doubling in the last decade alone. The unimaginable wealth that Gates has amassed is now being used to acquire something far more useful: control. Control not just over the global health authorities who can coordinate a worldwide vaccination program, or over the governments who will commission such an unprecedented campaign, but control over the world’s population itself.
This is a study by Bill Gates and the Population Control Network
From a journalistic point of view, Good Moring America’s mind-boggled account of the secret billionaires‘ meeting that took place in New York in 2009 was a failure. He listed some of the participants in the meeting and their total assets:
“Gates, Buffet, Bloomberg, Winfrey. Together with other participants in the meeting, including George Soros, Ted Turner, David Rockefeller, they are together worth more than 125 billion dollars ”.
It reached out to the editor-in-chief of Forbes to find out what it would be like to witness such an accumulation of wealth: „To have been in this room and see this meeting of heads would have been a really fascinating thing.“ And he reported dutifully about the reason given by the participants themselves for holding the meeting.
„So much money. So much power at one table. That begs the question of what they did. What are you planning? Total world domination? – This group talked for six hours together about charity, education, emergency relief and global health. „
Before we conclude with another youthful appeal to comic book superhero history.
“The new Superman and the Wonder Woman. The super rich friends. You don’t fight the bad, but fight for the good, nonetheless. For Good Morning America, John Berman, ABC News. „
Yes, from a journalistic standpoint, Berman’s report was a total failure. There was no way to question attendees about the meeting, no room for criticism of these billionaires or asking about their motives, no opposing journalism of any kind. But as a PR article it was brilliant. It leaves the viewer with the vague feeling that somewhere in New York there was some kind of gathering where rich people – who, let’s not forget, are superheroes – talked about charity. One would have to turn to printed sources to find out that the meeting was in the personal residence of Sir Paul Nurse , then President of Rockefeller University, that the invitation to the meeting of Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and David Rockefeller was co-authored or that the aim of the meeting was to “discuss how inheritance wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population”.
Given that these extremely rich and powerful men – including Warren Buffe t, David Rockefeller and Ted Turner – have all expressed their belief that the growing human population is the greatest threat to humanity, it should come as no surprise that they have convened a conference to discuss how best to apply their enormous wealth to the project of reducing the number of people on this earth.
Unsurprisingly, those attending the meeting later named Bill Gates – a man who is particularly concerned with population control – as the „most impressive“ speaker at the event.
“Here we see a graph that looks at total world population over the past hundred years, and at first glance, that’s a bit scary. We assume less than a billion in 1800, and then 3, 4, 5, 6 – and 7.4 billion, where we are today, it goes even faster. So Melinda and I wondered if providing new medicines and keeping children would create a bigger population problem ”. ( Gates via overpopulation video )
“And what the developing countries don’t need are more children. – And I think that was the biggest “aha” moment for Bill and me when we started this work. Because, of course, we asked ourselves the same tough question as you, namely, “If you get into this work where we start saving these children, will women continue to overpopulate the world? And thank God the opposite is the case. ”( Melinda Gates on Population Growth – Video )
“This is a very important question that needs to be resolved because it was absolutely crucial for me. When our foundation was launched, it focused on reproductive health. That was the most important thing we did because I thought, you know, population growth in poor countries is the biggest problem we face. You have to help mothers who want to limit family size have the resources and education to do that. And I thought that was the only thing that really mattered ”. ( Bill Gates on Overpopulation and Poverty – Video )
In recent years, critics have referred to Bill Gates‘ own words in which he linked vaccination programs to his goal of reducing population growth.
“Today there are 6.8 billion people in the world. That rises to around nine billion. If we do a really good job with the new vaccines, health care and reproductive health services, we could maybe cut that by 10 or 15 percent. ”( Video: Zero Innovation! | Bill Gates )
SANJAY GUPTA: Ten billion dollars over the next 10 years to make it the Year of the Vaccines. What does that mean exactly?
GATES: Well, we believe that incredible strides can be made in this decade, both by inventing new vaccines and making them available to all the children who need them. We could cut the number of children who die each year from about nine million to half if we succeed in doing so. And the benefits in terms of reducing sick leave, decreasing population growth, that really gives society the chance to take care of itself once you have this procedure. ”(CNN: Sanjay Gupta MD February 5, 2011 )
But as a number of „fact checking websites“ – not to mention Bill Gates himself – are quick to discover, this doesn’t mean what it sounds like.
„Bill Gates: What we have found is, is that families when health improves, choose to have fewer children.“ ( Video: Lists the rescue of more life to overpopulation? )
„Melinda Gates: The truth is that as people’s lives improve – when children survive, for example, or when girls go to school – people start making decisions based on the expectation that their children will be alive and well will thrive. The result is smaller families and slower population growth. ”( Video: Does Saving Lives Mean Overpopulation? )
“I came across articles that showed that the most important thing you can do to reduce population growth is to improve your health. And that sounds paradoxical. They think, “OK, better health means more children, not fewer children. In fact, parents try to have two children survive into adulthood in order to be able to look after them. And the higher the burden of disease, the more children they have to have to have this high probability. So there is a perfect correlation that the more health improves within half a generation, the lower the population growth rate. „( Video: Bill Gates on overpopulation and global poverty )
Yes, the Gates‘ stated plan is to reduce population growth by improving health. But the idea of using vaccines as sterilants – even without the knowledge or consent of the public – is not a conspiracy theory, but a documentable fact.
In its 1968 annual report, the Rockefeller Foundation looked at “the problems facing the population” and complained that “there is little work on immunological methods such as vaccines to reduce fertility and much more research is required if a solution is to be found „. The Foundation vowed to correct this problem by „funding established and beginning researchers who focus their attention on aspects of reproductive biology research that affect human fertility and its control“. See ‚pdf 6‘ at the end of the article.
This was not an empty promise. When the Rockefeller Foundation released its annual report in 1988, it reported progress in funding its contraception research, including NORPLANT, a contraceptive that is implanted under the skin of a woman’s upper arm and works for five years. In its 1988 report, the Rockefeller Foundation was pleased to announce that NORPLANT – developed by the Population Council founded by Rockefeller – „is now approved for marketing in 12 countries.“ See ‚pdf 7‘ at the end of the article.
Der Rockefellers‘ Population Council und andere Forschungsorganisationen schlossen sich 1972 mit der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) zusammen, um eine Task Force für Impfstoffe zur Regulierung der Fruchtbarkeit zu schaffen.
Bis 1995 konnten sie über Fortschritte bei der „Entwicklung eines Prototyps eines Anti-hCG-Impfstoffs“ berichten, der durch die Kombination eines Immunogens, das aus einem synthetischen Peptid des menschlichen Choriongonadotropins (hCG) – einem Hormon, das von der Oberfläche des frühen Embryos abgesondert wird und in der Gebärmutter implantiert bleibt – gebildet wird, mit einem toxischen Trägermolekül funktioniert. Der Impfstoff stimuliert eine Immunreaktion, die Frauen dazu veranlasst Antikörper gegen das Hormon zu entwickeln, wodurch sie daran gehindert werden Babys auszutragen.
However, from the 1990s onwards, a series of scandals surrounding WHO-led vaccination programs in the developing world led to claims that tetanus vaccines had been spiked with hCG in places like the Philippines and Kenya to covertly control the population. The controversy sparked by these allegations prompted global institutions to withdraw from the campaign to advocate population control through vaccines.
However, as always, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was there to renew interest and worked with the UK government to host a 2012 London Family Planning Summit, at which the Foundation expressed its support for research, development and funding Announced the spread of injectable contraceptives in developing countries.
Melinda Gates: “You heard me speak earlier about Sadi, who I met in Niger. She had traveled ten miles to get an injection. But let’s ask ourselves what if she hadn’t had to travel to this clinic? If we look at it from her point of view, how can we keep her in her village to get the contraceptives she wants? Well, Pfizer is testing a new form of Depo, the injection, which she can get ten miles. Now it’s being brought into a new shape, a new device that you can give it – it’s very, very small, it’s called Uniject. I believe it is pictured here.
It’s a high quality product. It is effective. It is save. It’s tiny as you can see. And it can be put in a medical kit to give to the woman at the village level. Sadi no longer has to drive ten miles to get the injection. ”( Video: Melinda Gates Keynote Speaker: London Summit on Family Planning | Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation )
But the gates weren’t content to stop there. In 2014, it was announced that Microchips Biotech, Inc. of Lexington, Massachusetts had developed a new form of birth control : “A wireless implant that can be turned on and off with a remote control for a lifespan of up to is designed for 16 years „. According to MIT Technology Review The idea arose when Bill Gates visited Robert Langer’s MIT laboratory in 2012 and asked him if it would be possible to develop an implantable birth control device that can be switched on and off with a remote control. Langer referred Gates to the controlled release microchip technology he invented and licensed to MicroCHIPS Biotechnology, and the Gates Foundation awarded the company $ 20 million to develop the implants.
According to Gates‘ own admission, reducing population growth has been a core task of the Gates Foundation since its inception. But where does this thinking of a computer nerd come from? Perhaps it was born in his cradle: William H. Gates II (Bill’s father) is not only co-chair of his son’s foundation but has also served on the board of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. This NGO operates more than 650 clinics in the USA which, in addition to distributing contraceptives, also perform abortions. 2019 was her record year with 332,757 prevented births and total sales of $ 563.8 million and personal donations of $ 630.8 million. They even bid chemical abortions using pills, which women can perform themselves in the toilet at home up to the 11th week of pregnancy. For a long time Planned Parenthood claimed that abortions only make 3% of their sales, now they admit, „Our core mission is to provide, protect and expand access to abortion and reproductive health care“. But to really understand what Gates means by “population control” we need to look beyond the concept of population size control. At its most basic level, the „population control“ that Gates speaks of is not birth control, but control of the population itself.
To understand the broader population control agenda and how it is linked to the Gates Foundation’s plans, we need to look at a puzzling development that occurred in 2017. That year, Gavi – the Gates-funded and formed vaccine alliance that brings the Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization and the World Bank together with vaccine manufacturers to secure „healthy markets“ for vaccines – strangely moved away from its core mission, vaccinate every child on the planet to give every child a digital biometric identity.
The idea was first voiced by Gavi CEO Seth Berkley in a Nature article that year: “ Vaccination Needs a Technology Boost „, in which he states that the goal of 100 percent vaccination without „secure digital identification systems that track the medical history can save a child ”, cannot be achieved. Then he gives a specific example:
“We work with a company in India called Khushi Baby that creates off-grid digital health data. A necklace worn by young children contains a unique identification number on a short-range communication chip. Community health workers can scan the chip with a cell phone so they can update a child’s digital records even in remote areas with poor phone coverage. „
This sudden interest in digital identity wasn’t a passing fad for the vaccine alliance. Gavi doubled his interest by becoming a founding member of the ID2020 Alliance, a public-private partnership dedicated to pioneering the introduction of a global digital biometric identity standard. Among the other founding members of the alliance the first company of Gates, Microsoft, and the Rockefeller Foundation are.
In 2018 , Gavi called for innovation in digital technologies „to find, identify and register the most vulnerable children“. The call specifically called for technologies to capture, store and register the biometric data of small children on “robust biometric devices”.
Berkley pursued this idea in public appearances as one of the new core tasks of Gavi.
Seth Berkley: „Interessant ist, dass die Leute dazu neigen, Geburtsurkunden als eine Art wichtiges Dokument zu betrachten. Aber, wissen Sie, die häufigste ist – wie ich bereits erwähnt habe – keine Geburtsurkunde, keine Sterbeurkunde, keine Heiratsurkunde. Die gebräuchlichste Verbindung – die lebenswichtige Registrierung für die Bevölkerung – ist eigentlich eine Kindergesundheitskarte, denn wir erreichen mehr als 90 Prozent der Kinder mit mindestens einer Dosis Impfstoff als Teil einer Routine, sie sind also im System. Die Herausforderung besteht darin, dass der Kontakt nicht in das System eingebunden ist. Wenn Sie es also anschließen könnten, dann hätten Sie die Möglichkeit, ihnen ihre grundlegenden Ausweispapiere zu geben. Sie haben die Möglichkeit, ihnen später, wenn sie Land besitzen oder ihre Rechte haben wollen, dabei zu helfen. Aber, wissen Sie, das machen wir uns zur Zeit nicht zunutze. Und so werden die Kinder gesehen, sie werden in den Gesundheitszentren eingeschrieben, aber diese Informationen werden für nichts anderes verwendet.“ (Video: Halbzeitbilanz 2018 – Michael Froman und Seth Berkley)
Obwohl Impfstoffe und Identität scheinbar nichts miteinander zu tun haben, hat Bill Gates in den letzten Jahren Forschungsarbeiten finanziert, die diese beiden Ideen zusammenbringen können.
Late last year, Gates reached out again to Robert Langer and his colleagues at MIT to explore new ways to permanently store and record everyone’s vaccination data. The result of their research was a new method of vaccine delivery. They found that by using „dissolvable microneedles that deliver patterns of near-infrared-emitting microparticles onto the skin“ they can create „particle patterns“ in the skin of vaccine recipients that are „invisible to the eye, but with modified smartphones.“ can be mapped „.
Rice University describes the quantum dot tags left behind by the microneedles as „something like a barcode tattoo“.
So who was behind this development? As lead researcher Kevin McHugh explains:
“The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation came to us and said, ‚Hey, we have a real problem – knowing who’s vaccinated [. . .] So our idea was to put the person on the file. That way, people can later scan the area to see what vaccines have been given and only give the ones they need. „
The microparticles that make up the fluorescent quantum dot tags are delivered with the vaccine, but they cannot be administered with a conventional syringe. Instead, they have to be administered using a patch made of microneedles, which are made from a mixture of soluble sugar and a polymer called PVA, as well as the quantum dot dye and vaccine.
It should come as no surprise, then, that the big pharma vaccine makers – in an effort to create the coronavirus vaccine that Gates says is necessary to „return to normal“ – have turned to a novel method of vaccine delivery: a dissolvable one Plaster with microneedles.
Nick Harper: “The polio vaccine was first discovered at the University of Pittsburgh. At the medical center, researchers are now developing a vaccine that is administered using a dissolvable patch called a microneedle patch.
Louis Faolo: Look at it almost like a plaster. And so the microneedle array is simply applied topically to the skin, pressed very briefly, then removed and thrown away, and the antigen is already administered. „( Video: Pharmaceutical companies scramble to produce coronavirus vaccine )
As it turns out, this new, vaccinated, barcode-like tattoo is about a lot more than just making sure kids get all of the vaccinations recommended by Gavi.
A recent “Ask Me Anything” thread on reddit asked, “What changes do we need to make to the way companies work to keep our economies running while maintaining social distancing?” Bill responded Gates: „At some point we will have some digital certificates that will show who has recovered, who has recently been tested, or once we have a vaccine, who has received it.“
In his response, Gates neglects to mention that he was instrumental in initiating and funding research into the very types of digital vaccination certificates he talks about, or those „digital certificates“ – which are Initially it is likely to be a digital marking combined with a biometric ID – it could one day take the form of quantum dot tattoos implanted in the vaccine.
But, as in so many other aspects of the developing crisis, Gates‘ unscientific proclamation is that we will need digital certificates to prove our immunity in the „new normal“ of the post-coronavirus world …
„Ultimately, we will need certificates that certify who a rescued person is, who is a vaccinated person.“ ( Video: How we must respond to the coronavirus pandemic | Bill Gates )
. . . . . is now being implemented by a number of governments. It is now reported that Onfido, a tech startup specializing in AI-based biometric ID verification, is in talks with the UK government over the type of “digital certification” mentioned by Gates, called “immunity passport „Is designated to make available.
The proposed system would require prospective workers to use the app provided by Onfido to scan their face or other biometric data, link that information to a SARS-CoV-2 antibody test (or finally, evidence of coronavirus vaccination ) and then every time they want access to a limited space or work environment, take a picture of them and have their immunity checked.
Last month Onfido announced that it raised $ 50 million in a round of investments led by Bill Gates‘ old company Microsoft.
However, this is not Gates‘ first experience with biometric identity.
A decade ago, the Indian government began what has been dubbed the “ World’s Greatest Social Experiment „: registering over a billion people in the largest biometric identification database ever built. The project – iris scanning and fingerprinting of the entire Indian population, recording their biometric data in a central database and issuing a twelve-digit identity number that could be used to prove residency and access to government services, all within a few years poses an incredible social, legal and technological challenge.
It is therefore no surprise that the person who was brought on board as the chief architect of the Aadhaar project when it was launched – Andan Nilekani, co-founder of the Indian multinational Infosys – is also a longtime friend of Bill Gates and a partner of Bill and Melinda Gates is on a „philanthropic“ project called Co-Impact that supports „initiatives to address great social challenges on a large scale“.
“Gates: My friend, Nandan Nilekani, is one of the most famous entrepreneurs in India. He led the development of the world’s largest biometric ID system. Now he’s working on promoting his platform to improve the lives of the world’s poorest people.
Nandar Nilekani: There are more than a billion people in the world who do not have ID. You can’t do anything in life without an ID because people are mobile, they are migrants. And wherever they go, whether they want a job, or whether they want to get on a train, or whether they want a bank account or a mobile connection, if the person has no way of proving who they are then they will they simply cannot access these services. So the challenge we faced was how do we give a billion people, many of whom do not have a birth certificate, how do we give them ID?
Aadhaar is the largest digital ID system in the world and is entirely based on biometrics to ensure uniqueness. Our registration was very simple: name, address, date of birth, gender, email ID and phone number if you wish, as well as the biometric data. The ten fingerprints from both hands, the irises of both eyes and a photo. And in a few days he’ll get his Aadhaar number in the mail. And that’s how a billion people got their IDs. „
And Gates personally praised the Aadhar program as “a great asset to India”.
“Well, Aadhaar is a great asset to India. It was designed very well. The fact that it is so easy to make digital payments that you can open a bank account. . . India is a leader in this. As you know, our foundation worked with the Reserve Bank. You know, Nandar Nilekani and a group of people he brought together did a great job. ”( Video: Microsoft Co-Founder Bill Gates Talks About Digitizing Aadhar Cards | Exclusive )
But Gates is not just an admirer of the aadhaar experiment. He is not only personally connected to his chief architect. He is also associated with one of the key companies that advanced the technology underlying the project’s biometric database.
The company that supplies iris recognition technology as the core of the Aadhaar system, Idemia also supplies facial recognition systems for the Chinese government and is currently developing digital driver’s licenses for use in the United States. Idemia even developed the khushi baby identification chains with embedded microchips that Gavi CEO Seth Berkley touted in his Nature article. Unsurprisingly, through its participation in the GSMA Inclusive Tech Lab , the company receives support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
And now Gates is funding a program to convert Aadhaar for global rollout
In 2014 the World Bank set up a cross-sector working group to launch the Identification for Development Initiative ( ID4D ), which aims to “support advances in identification systems by leveraging 21st century solutions”. The World Bank cites Goal 16.9 of the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development as the basis for its initiative , which states that „all people should be granted a legal identity, including birth registration“ over the next ten years.
But ID4D was little more than a pipe dream until 2016 when the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation made “catalytic contributions” to launch the ID4D Multi-Donor Trust Fund , which runs the governments of Great Britain, France and Australia along with the Omidyar Network led to a partnership aimed at “shaping global approaches and a common vision for identification”.
Unsurprisingly, Nandar Nilekani is part of this World Bank ID4D initiative – Gates ‚ partner and chief architect of Aadhaar – and Gates said he is funding the World Bank „to take this Aadhaar approach to other countries.“
This hasty rush to capture the biometric details and assign a digital identification to every person on earth is being sold to the public under the guise of „financial inclusion“. The poorest people on the planet have difficulty accessing financial services and receiving government aid because they do not have official government identification. In this wording, the issuance of a government ID – in which the biometric data of the person is registered by the government, tracked and stored in a database – is a „human right“ that must be „secured“.
It should come as no surprise at this point that this “human right” also has direct benefits for big business and for companies that want to exercise greater control over the human population.
Gates gave a glimpse into the real purpose of this identification control grid in a speech at the Financial Inclusion Forum hosted by the US Treasury Department in 2015.
“Every country really needs to look through these KYC-know your customer rules to make sure customers are able to prove who they are. But of course, in many countries they don’t have any type of ID system. And the lack of an ID system is a problem, not just for the payment system, but also for the electoral system, health and education, and taxation. And so it’s a wonderful thing to have a broad identification system.
Again, India is a very interesting example of where the aadhaar system, which is a 12-digit identifier correlated to biometric measurements, is catching on across the country and will form the basis of how we are making this low-cost transition for every mobile phone user in India. The same thing is now happening in Pakistan, and there are initial approaches to creating these ID programs in Africa as well.
We anticipate that we will be able to use the IDs in such a way that if you show up at a government agency – e.g. when you go to a primary health care clinic – you will be able to use that Bio-ID very quickly and access your electronic health record. Even if you have moved from one part of the country to the other, you will be well tracked and well served with almost as little paperwork or waiting. And so the ID system is fundamental. ”( Video: Bill Gates at the Financial Inclusion Forum, December 1, 2015)
The ID control grid is an essential part of the digitization of the economy. And while this is being sold as an opportunity for the „financial inclusion“ of the world’s poorest in the banking system offered by the likes of Gates and his banking and business associates, it is actually a system of financial exclusion. Exclusion of any person or transaction that does not have the approval of the government or payment providers.
Gates: „Once the financial flows go underground – where a lot of legitimate transactions mingle with those you want to track – and when they go through a digital system that the US has no connection with, the transactions are much harder to find whom you want to know or who you want to block. „
Again, this is not a purely theoretical talk by Gates. He was closely involved in this process of converting the world to a digital payment grid that is tied to biometric identity.
In 2012, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation helped found the Better Than Cash Alliance , which brings together governments, international organizations and the private sector to “accelerate the transition from cash to digital payments worldwide”.
And when the Indian government took the bold step of expropriating large amounts of its circulating currency in order to return off-accounting funds to the jurisdiction of the Indian tax office, Gates praised the move as an important step in creating a bold new digital economy, of course in connection with the Aadhaar ID grid.
“The bold step of dismantling high-quality denominations and replacing them with new notes with higher security features is an important step in moving from a shadow economy to an even more transparent economy. And I really believe that digital transactions will increase dramatically here. I even believe that India will be the most digitized economy in the next few years. Not just by size, but also by percentage. All parts come together now.
Ein Teil davon, über den wir uns gerne mit der Regierung beraten haben, um sicherzustellen, dass er auf die richtige Weise zusammenkommt, ist die bevorstehende Einführung von Zahlungsbanken. Dies wird zum ersten Mal wirklich bedeuten, dass Sie auf diesen Digitaltelefonen volle Währungsfähigkeit haben werden. Wenn Sie diese digitale Infrastruktur erst einmal haben, kann die ganze Art und Weise, wie Sie über die Vorteile für die Regierung denken, anders gestaltet werden. Mit der Zeit werden all diese Transaktionen einen Fußabdruck hinterlassen, und wenn Sie einen Kredit beantragen, wird die Möglichkeit, auf die Historie zuzugreifen, dass Sie Ihre Rechnungen für Versorgungsleistungen pünktlich bezahlt haben, dass Sie Geld für die Ausbildung Ihrer Kinder gespart haben, all diese Dinge in Ihrer digitalen Spur auf die Sie in geeigneter Weise zugreifen können es dem Kreditmarkt ermöglichen das Risiko richtig zu bewerten und so mehr Geld für Investitionen freizusetzen, nicht nur im Agrarsektor, sondern für alle Unternehmer im Land.“ (Video: PM bei Niti Ayog’s Vortragsreihe: Microsoft-Gründer Bill Gates wendet sich an Indiens Spitzenpolitiker)
Die verschiedenen Teile dieses Bevölkerungskontrollgitters passen zusammen wie die Teile eines Puzzles. Der Impf Antrieb knüpft an den biometrischen Identitätsantrieb an, der mit dem Antrieb der bargeldlosen Gesellschaft verknüpft ist.
In Gates‘ Vision wird jeder die von der Regierung vorgeschriebenen Impfungen erhalten, und jeder wird seine biometrischen Daten in national verwalteten, global integrierten digitalen IDs erfassen lassen. Diese digitalen Identitäten werden an alle unsere Aktionen und Transaktionen gebunden sein, und wenn sie als illegal erachtet werden, werden sie von der Regierung – oder sogar von den Zahlungsanbietern – einfach abgeschaltet.
Das indische Experiment der Pionierarbeit für diese biometrische digitale Wirtschaft – ein Experiment, an dem Gates so eng beteiligt war – ist ebenfalls ein perfektes Beispiel dafür, wie ein solches System missbraucht werden kann.
Im Januar 2018 enthüllte ein Bericht der „The Tribune“, dass alle Details, einschließlich Name, Adresse, Postleitzahl, Foto, Telefonnummer und E-Mail aller über eine Milliarde in Aadhaar registrierten Inder auf WhatsApp für 500 Rupien, d.h. etwa 7 US-Dollar, erhältlich waren. Die Unique Identification Authority of India, die das Aadhaar-Schema verwaltet, musste daraufhin zugeben dass auf etwa 210 Websites, darunter auch auf Websites der Zentralregierung und der Ministerien der Bundesstaaten, die Liste der Begünstigten der Regierung mit Namen, Adresse, anderen Angaben und Aadhaar-Nummern angezeigt wurde.
Noch beunruhigender ist, dass neu erhaltene Dokumente zeigen, dass die indische Regierung die von Aadhaar gesammelten Daten integriert, um eine „360-Grad-Datenbank“ zu erstellen, die „automatisch verfolgt, wenn ein Bürger zwischen Städten hin- und herzieht, den Arbeitsplatz wechselt oder eine neue Immobilie kauft“, und diese Daten in eine von der Raumfahrtbehörde des Landes, ISRO, erstellte georäumliche Echtzeit-Datenbank integriert.
Nur die absichtlich Stumpfsinnigsten könnten behaupten, die alptraumhaften Auswirkungen für diese Art von allsehender, alles durchdringender Gesellschaft nicht erkennen zu können, in der jede Transaktion und jede Bewegung jedes Bürgers von der Regierung in Echtzeit überwacht, analysiert und in einer Datenbank erfasst wird. Und Bill Gates ist einer dieser vorsätzlich begriffsstutzigen Menschen.
SHEREEN BAHN: “A current debate in India and around the world revolves around data. Well, you were an advocate of aadhaar, you supported and defended it. And I think the questions are not about whether it is a good idea or not, but whether it should be made mandatory for every citizen for every possible service. Because it was intended that people who have access to government subsidies, use the Aadhaar card to avoid duplication and leakage. So the question is that India is still struggling to create a framework for the protection of privacy, a regulation for the protection of privacy, a data protection provision. In this context, does it make sense to associate Aadhaar with all possible services,
GATES: Well, aadhaar is just something that saves you from posing as someone else. That you know, you can have fake people on your payroll on the sidewalk. Aadhaar, you know, prevents you from being on the payroll as an illegal worker. It prevents you from collecting things that you shouldn’t be collecting or from accessing a medical record that you shouldn’t have access to.
So the basic aadhaar mechanism is an identity mechanism. And so it is a shame if someone thinks, because Aadhaar is there, that this in and of itself creates a problem with privacy. ”( Video: Future ready with Bill Gates (exclusive interview) | Bill Gates & Melinda Gates : The Philanthropists )
Gates‘ answer is, of course, insincere. The real purpose of a globally integrated ID grid and cashless payment architecture is to remove privacy from our lives.
It should come as no surprise, then, that this man, not concerned about the privacy implications of a global, real-time electronic ID and digital payment grid, is also a key investor in EarthNow LLC, a company that promises to be “a big constellation deploy advanced imaging satellites that will deliver real-time and continuous video from almost every point on earth ”. See ‚pdf 8‘ at the end of the article.
No, this Gates-driven agenda is not about money. It’s about control. Control over every aspect of our daily life, from where we go, who we go to, who we meet, what we buy and what we do.
The irony is that this multi-billion dollar „philanthropist,“ so often portrayed as a cartoon superhero for his dazzling generosity, is in fact resembling a comic book super villain like no other, right down to the use of his vast wealth to research from Harvard University to darken the sun by spraying particles into the stratosphere.
Bill Gates was never elected and no citizen was ever asked what we think of satellite real-time video surveillance, what we think of Gates and Rockefeller’s population reduction plans, and what we think of his vision of a complete population control network! If we were to ask the Italian MP Sara Cunial, Bill Gates would have to be behind bars: she had courage and asked him to be charged with ‚crimes against humanity‘ in the Italian parliament .
Neither did Bill have a say on that fateful day in 1998, when suddenly three cream cakes were rattled in his face on the way to a meeting in Brussels 😉
But once again we are driven back to that question. Who is this person? What ideology drives this pursuit of control? And what is the ultimate goal of this pursuit?
