While philanthropy is considered noble, some philanthropists appear
to be doing far more harm than good with their donated millions.
Bill Gates, who cofounded Microsoft in 1975, is perhaps one of the
most dangerous philanthropists in modern history, having poured
billions of dollars into global health initiatives that stand on
shaky scientific and moral ground.
Gates' answers to the problems of the world are consistently focused
on building corporate profits through highly toxic methods, be it,
Rarely, if ever, do we find Gates promoting clean living
or inexpensive holistic health strategies.
Gates Donates Billions to Private Companies
A March 17, 2020, article 2 in The Nation titled, "Bill Gates'
Charity Paradox," details,
"the moral hazards surrounding the Gates
Foundation's $50 billion charitable enterprise, whose sprawling
activities over the last two decades have been subject to remarkably
little government oversight or public scrutiny."
As noted in this article, Gates discovered an easy way to gain
political power - "one that allows unelected billionaires to shape
public policy" - namely charity.
Gates has described his charity
strategy as "catalytic philanthropy," one in which the "tools of
capitalism" are leveraged to benefit the poor.
The only problem is that the true beneficiaries of Gates'
philanthropic endeavors tend to be those who are already rich beyond
comprehension, including Gates' own charitable foundation.
on the other hand, end up with costly solutions like patented GMO
seeds and vaccines that in some instances have done far more harm
than good. (For a few examples, see the following references.
The Nation reports: 6
"Through an investigation of more than 19,000 charitable grants the
Gates Foundation has made over the last two decades, The Nation has
uncovered close to $2 billion in tax-deductible charitable donations
to private companies... 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
The Gates Foundation even 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.
charitable donation is a small part of the $250 million the
foundation has given to media companies and other groups to
influence the news.
'It's been a quite unprecedented development, the amount that the
Gates Foundation is gifting to corporations... I find that
flabbergasting, frankly,' says Linsey McGoey, a professor of
sociology at the University of Essex and author of the book 'No Such
Thing as a Free Gift.'
'They've created one of the most problematic precedents in the
history of foundation giving by essentially opening the door for
corporations to see themselves as deserving charity claimants at a
time when corporate profits are at an all-time high'."

Those Calling the Shots Stand to Gain the Most
In the video above, Spiro Skouras reviews how the global COVID-19
pandemic is being used to snatch freedom and liberty away from us,
and the role Gates is playing in the process.
"We have been encouraged to sacrifice our liberty for a false sense
of security, being conditioned more and more each day to rely on the
state for protection and now many of us find ourselves relying on
the state to pay our bills," Skouras says. 9
"Some are beginning to see that there may be more to the official
story than what we are led to believe.
The very few may have seen
this coming and are waiting for the next phase of what very well
could be another step closer to
The exact same individuals and government agencies, in addition to
global institutions who stand to benefit the most, are the ones
calling the shots."
Gates, surely, fits the description of someone who is both calling
the shots and stands to gain handsomely from
the COVID-19 pandemic.
First, by investing in the same industries he's giving
charitable donations to
Second, by promoting a global public
health agenda that benefits the companies he's invested in and
How Gates' Foundation Benefits From Its Own Donations
For example, in 2014, a Mastercard affiliate, MasterCard Labs for
Financial Inclusion, received a $19 million donation, 10,11
"to 'increase usage
of digital financial products by poor adults' in Kenya," The
Nation reports, adding, 12
"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,
Indeed, those are sensible questions that need serious review.
The Mastercard donation also appears to have benefited the Gates
Foundation, making an investigation into Gates' "philanthropy" all
the more necessary.
As explained by The Nation, at the time of that donation, the Gates

Foundation to companies in which the foundation holds corporate

In other words, the Gates Foundation is giving

As a result, the Foundation and Gates himself continue to increase

to the tax breaks given for charitable donations. In short, it's a

startups," The Nation writes, adding:
"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...
Tax scholars like Ray Madoff,
a law professor at Boston College, indicate that
multibillionaires see tax savings of at least 40 percent -
which, for Bill Gates, would amount to $14 billion...
like many tax experts, stresses that these billions of dollars
in tax savings have to be seen as a public subsidy - money that
otherwise would have gone to the U.S. Treasury to help build
bridges, do medical research, or close the funding gap at the
If Bill and Melinda Gates don't pay their full freight in taxes, the
public has to make up the difference or simply live in a world where
governments do less and less (educating, vaccinating, and
researching) and superrich philanthropists do more and more.
'I think people often confuse what wealthy people are doing on their
own dime and what [they're] doing on our dime, and that's one of the
big problems about this debate,' Madoff notes.
'People say, 'It's the rich person's money [to spend as they wish].'
But when they get significant tax benefits, it's also our money.
so that's why we need to have rules about how they spend our
Take Action - Demand an Investigation
If donating to for-profit companies sounds oddly illegal to you,
you'd be right.
Gates is a tax evader for doing so - he's simply
getting away with it. The nonprofit foundation is a disguise to
avoid taxes while funding the research arms of for-profit
organizations that his foundation is invested in.
In reality, Bill and Melinda Gates should be given federal prison
sentences, and while not directly spelled out, I believe that's
really the point of The Nation's article.
Using nonprofit money to
advance research for companies you're invested in is illegal.
If you are as repulsed by the fact that Gates is getting away with
this illegal behavior as much as I am, then I encourage you to
contact the IRS Whistleblower Office and ask them to investigate
Gates' tax evasion.
You can also
file a consumer complaint with the
Washington State Attorney General's office.
Gates' Pro-Patent Agenda Limits Reforms
That Gates philanthropic endeavors protect his own investments can
also be seen in his pro-patent stance.
James Love, director of the
nonprofit Knowledge Ecology International pointed out to The Nation
that Gates: 13
"…uses his philanthropy to advance a pro-patent agenda on
pharmaceutical drugs, even in countries that are really poor...
undermining a lot of things that are really necessary to make drugs
affordable... He gives so much money to [fight] poverty, and yet he's
the biggest obstacle on a lot of reforms."
Gates is a staunch and longtime defender of
the drug industry, and
his intent to further the pharmaceutical agenda can clearly be seen
in the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Gates' COVID-19 Plan
- Vaccinate Global Population
As reported by Forbes, 14 The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has
committed $100 million to fight the global COVID-19 outbreak.
much as $20 million will reportedly go to agencies such as the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the
Organization (WHO) to be used for front-line detection, containment and
Another $20 million is earmarked for at-risk populations in Africa
and South Asia while the remaining $60 million is to be used for
vaccine development, diagnostics and other treatments.
Vaccines are clearly one of Gates' mainstay "solutions" to most
Gates has gone on record saying the U.S. needs disease
surveillance and a national tracking system 15 that could involve
vaccine records embedded on our bodies (such as invisible ink

Anthony Fauci, director of the
National Institute of
Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), has echoed this exact
sentiment as well, as if they're reading the same cue card.
It would not surprise me if they were, seeing how the Bill & Melinda
Gates Foundation collaborates with both the NIAID and WHO,
increase coordination across the international vaccine community and
create a Global Vaccine Action Plan." 18
Fauci is on Gate's Leadership Council board charged with developing
this vaccine action plan, as is WHO's former director general Dr.
As explained in a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
"The Global Vaccine Action Plan will enable greater coordination
across all stakeholder groups - national governments, multilateral
organizations, civil society, the private sector and philanthropic
organizations - and will identify critical policy, resource, and
other gaps that must be addressed to realize the life-saving
potential of vaccines."
Gates influence over global health policies has been criticized for
years, yet nothing has been done to limit it.
If anything, his power
has only grown, and warnings that his corporate interests may
undermine public health policy now appears to have come true.

The result, say his critics, is that Gates' priorities have
become the WHO's...

comes from investments in big business, it could serve as a Trojan
horse for corporate interests to undermine WHO's role in setting
standards and shaping health policies."
Vaccinate or Become a Social Outcast?
According to statements made by Gates, societal and financial
normalcy may never return to those who refuse vaccination, as the
digital vaccination certificate Gates is pushing for might
ultimately be required to go about your day-to-day life and
An April 4, 2020, article by OffGuardian comments on Gates' March
24, 2020, interview with Chris Anderson, the curator of TED (which
runs TED Talks) above: 20
"Shockingly, Gates... suggests people be made to have a digital ID
showing their vaccination status, and that people without this
'digital immunity proof' would not be allowed to travel.
approach would mean very big money for vaccine producers."
Again, vaccine producers stand to make enormous amounts of money
from any given pandemic, and the Gates Foundation is both funding
and making investment profits from vaccine makers.
Is it any wonder
then that Gates is trying to indoctrinate people into thinking there
are no other answers?
When asked by Anderson about the economic
ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gates says:
"It is really tragic that the economic effects of this are very
dramatic... But... bringing the economy back... that's more of a
reversible thing than bringing people back to life.
So, we're going
to take the pain in the economic dimension, huge pain, in order to
minimize the pain in disease and death dimension."
As noted by OffGuardian, Gates' statement: 21
"…goes directly against the imperative to balance the benefits and
costs of the screening, testing and treatment measures for each
ailment - as successfully promulgated for years by, for example, the
Choosing Wisely campaign - to provide the maximum benefit to
individual patients and society as a whole.
Even more importantly...
there may be dramatically more deaths from the economic
breakdown than from COVID-19 itself...
Millions could potentially die from suicide, drug abuse, lack of
medical coverage or treatment, poverty and lack of food access, on
top of other predictable social, medical and public-health problems
stemming from the response to COVID-19."
Gates Explains Economic Shutdown
At 33:45 in the interview, Gates
goes on to reveal what appears to be a stunning insider's insight
into the current economic shutdown:
"We don't want to have a lot of recovered people...
To be clear,
we're trying - through the shut-down in the United States - to not
get to 1% of the population infected... I believe we will be able
to avoid that with having this economic pain."
In other words, if we are to believe Gates,
we're sacrificing the
financial stability and sanity of hundreds of millions of Americans
in order to prevent the infection rate from hitting 1% of the

Clearly, if you want to make money from a
vaccine, you don't want people to develop immunity naturally, and
this is precisely what Gates is admitting to.
As noted by OffGuardian: 23
"Gates and his colleagues far prefer to create a vast, hugely
expensive, new system of manufacturing and selling billions of test
kits, and in parallel very quickly developing and selling billions
of antivirals and vaccines.
And then, when the virus comes back again a few months later and
most of the population is unexposed and therefore vulnerable,
selling billions more test kits and medical interventions."
Gates Leads Medical Tyranny Agenda
The short video above summarizes some of the points I've touched on
in this article so far and reviews how the Bill & Melinda Gates
Foundation influences public health policy at the very highest
levels through a vast web of personal and organizational
Gates has a history of "predicting" global pandemics with vast
numbers of deaths, 24 and with his call for a tracking system to keep
tabs on infected/non-infected and vaccinated/unvaccinated
individuals, he's ensuring an unimaginably profitable future for the
vaccine makers he supports and makes money from via his Foundation
In an April 9, 2020, Children's Health Defense article, 25
Kennedy Jr. further details Gates' vaccine agenda.
As noted by
"Vaccines, for Bill Gates, are a strategic philanthropy that feed
his many vaccine-related businesses (including Microsoft's ambition
to control a global vaccination ID enterprise 26) and give him
dictatorial control of global health policy."
The vaccination ID enterprise Kennedy mentions refers to a program
called ID2020, launched in 2019, which is designed to "leverage
immunization as an opportunity to establish digital identity."
This digital identity system is said to carry,
implications for individuals' access to services and livelihoods,"
...so to think that Gates' call for implantable COVID-19 vaccine
certificates would be limited to that alone would likely be a grave
It's not so far-fetched to imagine a future in which your vaccine
certificate simply replaces personal identifications such as your,

Wall Street Journal Wants Us to Pity Gates
As people are starting to see the truth, Gates' social media
accounts have been flooded with criticism, resulting in The Wall
Street Journal publishing an article 28 trying to raise pity for him,
saying he's being attacked by "social media mobs."
April 17, 2020,
Zero Hedge commented on the PR campaign to protect Gates: 29
"The Wall Street Journal's Deepa Seetharaman wants us to know that
while poor billionaire Bill Gates has,
'long been a target for online
trolls'... 'the social-media attacks have intensified',
...as the Microsoft
co-founder and World Health Organization (WHO) benefactor has
become the left's de-facto coronavirus czar...
the 'conspiracy theorists' are having a little trouble digesting
the fact that Gates - whose vaccine efforts in India were blamed
for a devastating non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP)
epidemic that paralyzed 490,000 children - coincidentally hosted
an October, 2019 high-level 'pandemic simulation' in New York
called Event 201 which specifically focused on
Combine that with Gates' recent comments about mass vaccination and
biometric identification in order to 'open up' the country and allow
people to attend mass gatherings - an idea which Dr. Anthony Fauci
said 'has merit,' and so-called
conspiracy theorists have plenty of
dots to connect.
According to the Journal,
'social-media platforms remain fertile
ground for virus-related conspiracies and online harassment, despite
repeated pledges by the companies to crack down on such activity.'
So - Gates is being
harassed and nobody is stopping these thought criminals with
their menacing opinions.
And of course, 'bots'
are also being blamed for amplifying 'conspiracy claims' - since
there can't be that many real humans with bad things to say
about Mr. Gates."
Far from being a force for good, Gates appears to have chosen to use
his wealth and intellect to further a distasteful social control
plan to benefit his own nefarious agendas, and people all over the
world are finally starting to see his true colors...
