Wikileaks/Cablegate Sheds Bad Light on Bill Gates’ Rogue Patent Investments

Kids in Nigeria

Summary: Pfizer’s impact on the Nigerian population serves to show that Bill Gates’ actions in the country can be counter productive and beneficial to large American business

A FEW months ago we wrote about Pfizer's connections with the Gates Foundation. Bill Gates is a shareholder and his investment in experiments performed on Nigerian people can result in massive profits, which rely on Pfizer patents and medication that can be tested on a population that would not sue back when things go awry*. This victimisation of Nigeria is a subject we more recently covered in various posts but did not have time to continue covering in recent weeks. Fortunately enough, with Wikileaks’ help Democracy Now is currently covering what it titled “WikiLeaks Cables: Pfizer Targeted Nigerian Attorney General to Undermine Suit over Fatal Drug Tests”

“The Gates Foundation is about control, not charity.”“Diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks show the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer hired investigators to find evidence of corruption against the Nigerian attorney general to pressure him to drop a $6 billion lawsuit over fraudulent drug tests on Nigerian children,” says the summary. Democracy Now helped explain how Gates increases polio in Nigeria, too. That was a few years back.

It’s not just Nigeria which gets this type of treatment. The Gates Foundation is about control, not charity. Dr. Ravitch, for example, has warned [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6] that Bill Gates uses it as a vehicle to take over American schools and Alternet.org, which is not ‘for sale’, slags him off for it right now, summarising its article as follows:

Gates’ suggested short-changing of the nation’s education system is just another strain of the oligarchs trying to take over another sector of society.

The above refers to the United States, but Gates took this agenda to Canada too. That was some months ago. It’s all about power, it’s a question of control. It goes global, gradually. Real issues like safety for example are being ignored.

Last week the Ontario Auditor General released its report with respect to the Ontario Governments “Safe Schools initiatives”. The overall report centers on the lack of information relating to the success of programs implemented in the Safe Schools initiatives, and lack of accountability with respect to where the money the province allocated to these programs went when school boards got their hands on it.

It’s a shame that we no longer cover Gates Foundation news. Hopefully we will return to showing what Bill Gates does not want people to know, maybe some time this month (he spends about a million dollars per day just controlling the press and glorifying himself, quite effectively in fact). How about paying tax like ‘normal’ people?

“My background is finance and accounting. As a socially conscious venture capitalist and philanthropist, I have a very good understanding of wealth management and philanthropy. I started my career in 1967 with the IRS as a specialist in taxation covering many areas of the tax law including the so-called legal loopholes to charitable giving. […] However, the Gates Buffet foundation grant is nothing more than a shell game in which control of assets for both Gates and Buffet remain the same. […] The only difference is that the accumulation of wealth by these two will be much more massive because they will no longer have to pay any taxes.”

    The quote from CommonDreams.ORG indicates a need to reform the regulations governing charitable trusts. I don’t believe that this sort of action would be possible under Canadian or British law, but American law seems too often to be designed for abuse.

    Dr. Roy Schestowitz Reply:

    “Pet charities” are abundant there as means of collecting bribe money, then getting praised for money laundering. Some politicians have these.

  6. [Meme] Fluffy Staff

    EPO President António Campinos is failing to ‘contain’ the media after less than 4 years at the Office, just like Benoît Battistelli around 2014



  7. Kluwer Patent Blog Belatedly Gives EPO Staff a Voice

    There are at least 2 bloggers — if not 3 people — at Kluwer Patent Blog who air grievances of EPO staff; in addition, many of the comments there blast EPO management and Team UPC and it helps change the perceptions long shaped by bribes and blackmail from EPO management



  8. [Meme] Fluffy President

    Prepare for more puff pieces and fluff from President Fluffinos, who has commandeered the EPO‘s official Web site for self-serving whitewash and promotion of illegal agenda like European software patents and a kangaroo court to approve those (UPC)



  9. Blaming Patent Examiners Who Respect the Law

    The latest comments here are quite revealing; the EPO not only breaks the law with impunity but it also challenges the very legal system (like courts) with total impunity; Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos are, in that regard, no better than Putin, just more temperamental

    The General Consultative Committee (GCC) at the EPO deals with unlawful proposals from António Campinos (he’s happy to violate laws, constitutions, protocols, conventions, just like Benoît Battistelli did) and once again the abuses by managers is covered up; it’s as if the Office is run by unaccountable gangsters who arrogantly curse at everyone whilst insisting they’re the nicest people ever
