Gates Foundation’s Head of Global Health Gags Academic Researchers With Threats, Forbes Magazine Calls Gates Vaccination “Utterly Repellent”

Summary: Lesser-explored aspects of the Gates Foundation’s work (especially in health) are analysed further in light of coverage from the business press

LAST WEEK we wrote about the Head of Global Health for the Gates Foundation having somewhat of a criminal past. Gates Keepers has more to say on the subject.

It certainly looks like a lucky coincidence that this flufftalk interview of Tachi came out just as the heat is being turned up on investigating his threatening behaviour in his previous job. The Senate Finance Committee “says he made phone calls to officials at the University of North Carolina and the University of Pennsylvania to shut down studies of possible negative side effects of Avandia” made by Tachi’s company.

Tachi says he likes to give direct negative feedback so he will like Gates Keepers speaking straight: Gates Keepers thinks you acted unethically by threatening academic researchers. Restitution and amends are in order.

The Gates Foundation helps establish monopolies in health and it doesn’t take a cynic to see it*. Forbes Magazine slams the Gates Foundation in one of its latest issues that we found out about last night. It is a fascinating long article which speaks about the effect of the vaccines and monopolisation in the area. It’s titled “Utterly Repellent”.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is fascinating. So is the just-released 19-page annual letter that describes the work of his charitable foundation–the world’s largest. But for someone so smart who can afford to hire a bevy of experts on any subject under the sun, some of Gates’ foundation’s strategies for problem-solving are baffling.

Consider its two-pronged approach to malaria. It focuses on bed nets–an ultra-low-tech, only modestly effective intervention–and the development of a vaccine, a high-tech solution that has eluded the intensive efforts of scientists for decades. Yet it dismisses the chemical DDT, an old, cheap and safe tool to control the vector–the Anopheles mosquito–that spreads the disease.

[...]

But policies based on science and data enjoy a short half-life at the UN. Last year, with a notable absence of fanfare, WHO reverted to endorsing less effective methods for preventing malaria. In a May 6 statement the WHO and the UN Environment Program announced that their goal was “to achieve a 30% cut in the application of DDT worldwide by 2014 and its total phase-out by the early 2020s, if not sooner.” In the absence of effective vaccines or new anti-malarial drugs–and the funding and infrastructure to deliver them–this decision is tantamount to mass murder, a triumph of radical enviro-politics over public health.

Gates has been doing many questionable things that we wrote about. Some people whisper about his suggestions at TED that vaccination is also used for sterilisation. Here is a video that highlights this. Now, to be clear, reducing the world’s population is not the issue here, but it’s about telling people what’s involved and what side effects may exist (if any do exist).

Watch this other report from this week. It seems almost like a bribe and Gates Keepers interprets it as follows:

Well those Southeast Asian lawmakers who earn billions a year from producing tobacco products are unlikely to just roll over and increase taxes to reduce consumption without a people’s movement to push them. SEATCA will receive seven million dollars but doesn’t look like a citizen participation organization to Gates Keepers.

We previously covered this subject in [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6].

* As a side story, Bill and Melinda travel the world, pressuring governments to accept the bill (at taxpayers' expense) for vaccination. They brags about donating access to patents (on life forms) that they invest in, i.e. profit from.

    It is worth noting that as recently as the 1970′s the United States government openly and actively practiced forced sterilization of select vulnerable and “undesirable” populations living in the United States itself. For example, over 1/3 of Lakota women living on reservations were sterilized during this time period. So this is not very new, nor is the deliberate misuse of vaccinations, as many indigenous peoples in British Canada remember.
