He is a major source of funds for industrially synthesized protein to replace protein from animals
He is a major source of funds for vaccine research, development and distribution.
He is a major source of funding for many news and journalism institutions.

WHO organization’s largest financial contributor is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation giving the non-governmental international empire unparalleled influence over one the world’s most important multilateral organizations. Bill Gates has achieved a hero-like status during the pandemic.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the largest private foundation on Earth, reporting over $51 billion in assets at the end of 2019.

Is the Gates Foundation functions as a trojan horse for Western corporations, which of course have no goal greater than an increased bottom line?

The foundation has donated millions to major media outlets, including NPR, PBS, ABC, BBC, Al Jazeera, the Daily Telegraph, the Financial Times, Univision, and The Guardian. In fact, The Guardian’s entire “Global Development” section was made possible through a partnership with the Gates Foundation.

The Gates Foundation’s practice of pushing dangerous drugs onto health systems of the Global South is not limited to vaccines. It also helps distribute long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs).

Melinda Gates often refers to LARCs as a way to empower women of impoverished countries and give them more control over their lives. However, some of these LARCs have had adverse effects, and the distribution of the products without informed consent offers women little self-determination.

It is estimated that about 90 percent of drug development costs are incurred in phase III trials. But these companies can avoid costs by conducting the trials in so-called developing nations.

This cost-cutting strategy has been outlined by the U.S. consulting firm McKinsey, which suggested including “emerging markets” in drug trials to reduce “the loss of significant revenues.”

So it comes as no surprise that the Gates Foundation, a McKinsey client, outwardly stated its “goal” was to help drug companies side-step safety trials and accelerate the drug approval process for pharmaceutical companies. Or, as they put it, to “refine potential interventions such as vaccine candidates before they enter costly and time consuming late-stage clinical trials.”

Gates’ principal objective is to breed Green Revolution varieties engineered to respond to chemical inputs produced by Gates’ “Poison Cartel” partners: Monsanto, Bayer, Dow/DuPont, CropLife, BASF, Syngenta, Corteva, etc. In short, Gates deliberately robs the seed of its integrity and diversity, erasing evolutionary history and its links to the soil, reducing it all to a simple “code.” In this way, Gates captures our planet’s genetic diversity, rewrites it, patents its code, steals the seeds from humanity and marries them off to the chemical conglomerates.

By centralizing the Seed Banks and manipulating intellectual property laws, Gates has launched a campaign of “genetic colonialism” to rob the world’s peasants and indigenous farmers of their hard-earned seeds and knowledge.

Bill Gates is the classic example of a partially, inadequately educated person who became rich more by chance than by personal merit. He now probably feels a bit guilty about his accumulated wealth and wants to atone for it, but lacks the knowledge base needed for proper action. Instead, he's letting his naive conscience be his guide..and it helps if he'll make even more money and gain even more control by it.

Well doing something just might be better than complaining about other's efforts and doing nothing.

Who does Mr. Gates listen to? Who does he conform to, based on their good intentions for him?
He heard the liberal cry for "Someone needs to do something" and he is.

Do they or is that another conspiracy theory when people are just trying to do good?

How horrible to help women by giving them access to birth control. How horrible to buy farm land so that it does not get turned into more parking lots.

You are saying it is simply altruism?

Murder is not birth control.
The land he has purchased won't be a parking lot anytime soon.
Conspiracy theory is a tag word used many times for "I can't refute what you are saying."

I think he is spending billions of his own money and lots of his time doing good and it is being turned into a conspiracy theory for some reason. I am more concerned about that.
The same ones who believe in conspiracy theories are typically labeled as gullible.
Those who are willing to "think" what others are doing without knowing could be labeled in the same way.

I don't need to refute what you are saying. You have not proven that he is doing anything wrong. Birth Control is not murder.

My own opinion is proof enough to me that his ideas and beliefs should remain his and not mine.
He is no Edison, MLK or Red Green.
My ideas about how my fellow man should be living aren't any better because I have the wealth to implement them, for "the good of mankind."

I'll start with a little story:

A little tweety bird decides that he's not going South for the winter. Along about January, he's freezing to death and decides that maybe flying South isn't such a bad idea and better late than never, so he takes off.

It's so cold the his wings ice up and he falls to the ground, right in a cow lot. He's hopping around freezing when a cow walks by and takes a big dump right on top of him. After the initial shock he realizes that for the first time in a long time that he's warm. He squirms around until he pokes his head out of the pile and starts to sing out of sheer joy. Well, the barn cat hears him and comes out and digs him out of the manure and eats him.

The moral?

Them that craps on you ain't necessarily your enemies.

Them that digs you out of the crap ain't necessarily your friends.

And when you're up to your neck in crap, it's best to keep your mouth shut.

It would appear that to you Bill Gates is busily digging the third world out of the crap. To old sceptics like me, he is in it for the money, with his efforts cleverly disguised as altruism to satisfy folks like you who stop investigating when their feelings are satisfied. Who cares if he is stabbing people in the arm with unproven vaccines? His heart is in the right place so who cares if he is in bed with Big Pharma? And look at what he is doing for the starving children in Africa! Who cares that he is is giving the lion's share of grants to US and European NGO's (Non Governmental Organizations) and is therefore lining the pockets of US and European private agri-businesses, backdooring their entry into the African market and excluding African based NGO's?

IMHO Bill Gates is in it for money and more power. He doesn't give a rat's patooey about African children, saving lives or birth control. If there weren't any money in it for him and his cronies, he would withdraw his financial support quicker than you could say, "Jack Robinson."



"According to the report, the Gates foundation is now the second largest donor to the World Health Organisation after the US, as well as one of the world’s largest single investors in biotechnology for farming and pharmaceuticals. But while the billions of dollars for research is welcomed in rich countries, its massive power to shift the agenda is questioned elsewhere.

“The mushrooming of global partnerships, particularly in the health sector, has led to isolated and often poorly coordinated solutions. These initiatives have not only contributed to the institutional weakening of the UN ands its specialised agencies but have undermined national development strategies,” it says.

Médecins Sans Frontières‎ (MSF) states that, while Gavi has helped to lower prices of new and underused vaccines for eligible countries, the cost to fully immunise a child was 68 times more expensive in 2014 than it was in 2001.” The report also questions why the Gates foundation invests heavily in companies like Monsanto and Bayer. “In addition to its grant-making activities, the Gates foundation has recently stepped up its support for the biotechnological industry directly.” In February, it took a $52m equity stake in CureVac, a German bio-pharmaceutical company.

“There is a revolving door between the Gates foundation and pharmaceutical corporations. Many of the foundation’s staff had held positions at pharmaceutical companies,” the report adds."

"The study says: “Both Gates and the Rockefeller Foundation regard technological innovation and close cooperation with the food and agricultural industries as key to overcoming hunger … In 2006 they together launched the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (Agra), based on the premise that hunger in Africa is mainly the result of a lack of technology and functioning markets. [This] changed the farming agenda in Africa,” say the authors.

Since then Gates has given more than $3bn to support 660 agricultural projects as well as several hundred million dollars for nutrition. “The vast majority of grants focus on Africa. However, more than 80% of the $669m to NGOs went to organisations based in the US and Europe, with only 4% going to Africa-based NGOs. ”The report claims Agra has been intervening directly in the formulation of African governments’ agricultural policies on issues like seeds and land. “Because of its focus on bio-technological farming methods, it has increasingly promoted GM seeds. Critics claim that under the guise of eliminating hunger in Africa, it is a tool to open African markets to US agri-buiness,” says the report."


Are Gates and Rockefeller using their influence to set agenda in poor states?

some reason. I am more concerned about that.
Some people think for themselves, and those that don't label it a conspiracy when those thoughts are articulated. Labeling it a conspiracy is a form of suppression of free speech and a form of cancel culture


Conspiracy theory is a tag word used many times for "I can't refute what you are saying."
