When I am short of evidence I believe that following the money is a good strategy.
Mainstream media proclaims that Bill Gates is a philanthropist dedicated to helping save the lives of the poor children in Third World countries.
We have seen that quite the opposite is true. That Bill Gates benefits to the tune of billions through unrolling vaccines. We have seen that his vaccines sterilize, maim and kill the children and cause outbreaks of the diseases his vaccines were purported to prevent.
So let’s take a look at the Bill & Melinda Gates Charity.
The Bill Gates Foundation charity:
- Donates $35,000 a year to the private school their children attend, Lakeside School (1)
- Met multiple times with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to discuss collaborating on charitable activities, from which Epstein stood to generate millions of dollars in management fees (paid for by their charity) (1)
- Made 19,000 charitable grants over the last two decades, of which close to $2 billion in tax-deductible charitable donations were made to private companies—including some of the largest businesses in the world, such as GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever, IBM, and NBC Universal Media—which are tasked with developing new drugs, improving sanitation in the developing world, developing financial products for Muslim consumers, and spreading the good news about this work (1)
- The Gates Foundation gave $2 million to Participant Media to promote Davis Guggenheim’s previous documentary film Waiting for Superman, which pushes one of the foundation’s signature charity efforts, charter schools—privately managed public schools (1)
- Made a $19 million donation to a Mastercard affiliate in 2014 to “increase usage of digital financial products by poor adults” in Kenya. The credit card giant had already articulated its keen business interest in cultivating new clients from the developing world’s 2.5 billion unbanked people, McGoey says, so why did it need a wealthy philanthropist to subsidize its work? And why are Bill and Melinda Gates getting a tax break for this donation? (1)
- With the opportunity the Coronavirus “pandemic” offered them, GAVI and Mastercard subsequently partnered in Africa to test a biometric digital identity system, vaccination records, and a payment system all rolled into one platform. Those tested will be poor, uneducated Africans who don’t have a clue what is being injected into them and the fact that every aspect of their lives, private and financial, will be surveyed by means of the nano chip. (2)
The GAVI alliance is largely funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation. In short, Africans are being used as human guinea pigs for experimental programs that when perfected, will be rolled out to the rest of the world. (2)
While the efforts of fellow billionaire philanthropist Michael Bloomberg to use his wealth to win the presidency foundered amid intense media criticism, Gates has proved there is a far easier path to political power, one that allows unelected billionaires to shape public policy in ways that almost always generate favourable headlines: charity.
Close to $250 million in charitable grants from the Gates Foundation to companies in which the foundation holds corporate stocks and bonds were made: Merck, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, Vodafone, Sanofi, Ericsson, LG, Medtronic, Teva, and numerous start-ups—with the grants directed at projects like developing new drugs and health monitoring systems and creating mobile banking services.
A foundation giving a charitable grant to a company that it partly owns—and stands to benefit from financially—would seem like an obvious conflict of interest…
The Philanthropy Roundtable seems primarily to serve the private interests of billionaires like the Gates’ and Koch who use charity to influence public policy, with limited oversight and substantial public subsidies. It’s unclear how the Philanthropy Roundtable’s work contributes to the Gates Foundation’s charitable missions “to help all people live healthy, productive lives” and “to empower the poorest in society so they can transform their lives.”
Philanthropy has also delivered a public relations coup for Bill Gates, dramatically transforming his reputation as one of the most cutthroat CEOs, to one of the most admired people on earth. And his model of charity, influence, and absolution is inspiring a new era of controversial tech billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos, who have begun giving away their billions, sometimes working directly with Gates.
Gates was already one of the richest humans on earth in 2008, but he was also an embattled billionaire, still licking his wounds from a series of legal battles around the monopolistic business practices that made him so extravagantly wealthy—and that compelled Microsoft to pay billions of dollars in fines and settlements.
