Super Lobbyist Bill Gates Tells the Entire World What Patents to License

Summary: The vaccination advocacy from Gates is being criticised for being short-sighted and selfish/self-serving

ONE need not shout and curse to be called a bully. Many manipulative people can wear a sweater and speak calmly, still achieving pretty much the same goals and coercing others to follow their own selfish agenda. Those who do not agree will be left to rot on the wayside. It is easier to achieve this while hiding behind an entity proclaiming to be an NGO or a charity, whose main role is actually investment in stocks at Wall Street.

Unfortunately, money means almost everything in research because if one cannot obtain sponsorship/grants, then his/her line of research is being suppressed. The same goes for advertising in trade journals and old press.

“Unfortunately, money means almost everything in research because if one cannot obtain sponsorship/grants, then his/her line of research is being suppressed.”So today we consider this report from an independent blogger who used to be a journalist (and thus coerced by Gates et al. to sing their praises). He writes about Gates pressuring all states all around the world to do as he wishes regarding patents, having brought people from patent giants that sell those patent-’protected’ drugs (taxpayers pay for those drugs, not Gates, who is there to claim credit). For the uninitiated, Gates liaised with some pharmaceutical giants whose heads joined his foundation. He then put his investment money in those companies and funded some universities to produce the propaganda they require (assigned to Gates’ ‘charity’ rather than the big pharmaceutical companies that profit along with Gates but arouse too much suspicion and draw flak). To quote the report: ‘”That was a sobering realization for me,” said Bill Gates, speaking today to the World Health Assembly and representatives of 193 member states. [...] All 193 member states, you must make vaccines a central focus of your health systems, to ensure that all your children have access to existing vaccines now—and to new ones as they become available.’

Yes, Gates and the companies he invests his money in are pushing aside other people with other ideas just because these competing ‘idealists’ don’t have illegally-earned fortunes like Gates. As pointed out by Gates Keepers:

Mr Kenny points out that most of the public health benefits and deaths averted from immunisation have already taken place. As vaccine preventable diseases continue to decrease, the Gates Foundation will step up to take the credit and ride to glory on the downslope.

It is rather troubling that this whole reputation laundering operation truly works because it increases Gates’ wealth and status at the same time. Here is some new Smithsonian propaganda (where the former head of the foundation now works). It’s all just part of the attempt to project/portray the world’s top villain as some kind of hero. Will the press ever catch up and manage to teach the public about those tricks? Or can Bill Gates’ PR budget always be one step ahead? This PR budget is still standing at about 400 million dollars per year (not charity, just PR or “advocacy” as Gates prefers to call it). People’s health is at stake and as we’ll show in the next post, children’s (mis)education too.
