Slams Social Media for Spreading 'Disinfo'
In a September 2020 interview with Axios on HBO,
"It may be time for a
reckoning" with social media's role in spreading
According to Axios:
"Bill and Melinda
Gates... [have] seen firsthand the impact of disinformation, as
they've become targets of conspiracy theories amplified and
spread via social media...
said society may need to start holding social media companies to
account for their role in helping such disinformation spread."
It's ironic, to say the
least, considering the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funds
and influences mainstream media companies, which in turn write
whatever the Gates desire, be it truthful or not, without disclosing
their conflict of interest.
Through its grants to the Leo Burnett Company, an ad agency
Publicis, the Gates Foundation is also financially
linked to NewsGuard and HealthGuard, as both of these
"fact-checking" sites are funded by Publicis.
Bill Gates already has the
power to pull strings and censor content they don't like.
Foundation Funds Scientific Disinformation
The Gates Foundation also has a history of funding disreputable and
flawed to the point of being fraudulent science.
What they call
"disinformation" and "conspiracy theories" are to a large extent
merely information exposing the Gates Foundation's own
Case in point:
The Gates Foundation
funds the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis
to the tune of millions of dollars per year.
MRC Centre is the leading body
advising world governments and the World Health Organization
about infectious disease outbreaks.
Neil Ferguson, a professor of
mathematical biology at Imperial College London and co-founder of
the MRC Centre, has produced a string of pandemic predictions that
have turned out to be spectacularly incorrect: 2,3
Ferguson's team produced a model for the spread of foot and
mouth disease in British livestock, concluding that even in
cases where there was no evidence of infection, animals had
to be culled to curtail the outbreak.
The projection led to the slaughter of more than 6 million
cattle, sheep and pigs in the U.K. that year, costing the
national economy an estimated £10 billion.
As reported by
"It has been
claimed by experts such as Michael Thrusfield, professor
of veterinary epidemiology at Edinburgh University, that
Ferguson's modeling on foot and mouth was 'severely
flawed' and made a 'serious error' by 'ignoring the
species composition of farms,' and the fact that the
disease spread faster between different species."
In 2002, Ferguson
predicted that by 2080, beef tainted with mad cow disease
could kill up to 50,000 people, with a worst-case scenario
killing 150,000. 5
As of 2015, there
had only been 177 human deaths attributable to
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in the U.K., the human version of
mad cow disease. 6
In 2005, Ferguson
forecasted that 200 million people would die from bird flu.
Meanwhile, in the real world, just 282 people died from bird
flu, worldwide, between 2003 and 2009. 7
In 2009, Ferguson
predicted the swine flu would have a case fatality rate of
0.3% to 1.5%, with the most likely fatality rate being right
around 0.4%. Based on this model, the U.K.'s projected death
toll was 65,000.
Once the pandemic
ended, it turned out to have a death rate of just 0.026%,
killing just 457 Britons. 8
Ferguson's Imperial College model for COVID-19, relied on by
governments around the world, led to the most draconian
pandemic response measures in modern history.
9 the U.K. would be looking at a death toll of more
than 500,000, and the U.S. some 2.2 million, if no action
Based on the experiences
of certain countries that chose not to lock down or mandate
draconian disease prevention measures,
such as Sweden, we can now see that
authoritarian pandemic responses have had little if any beneficial
According to Ferguson, his woefully incorrect prediction was based

of the problematic bugs in the code have been published by a
software engineer on LockdownSceptics.org.
According to the author,
the Imperial College has made a number of false statements and
claims about this code.
In May 2020, Ferguson - nicknamed "Professor Lockdown" -
resigned as government adviser to the U.K. after being caught
breaking the very lockdown and social distancing rules he so
strongly advocated for, to meet up with his married lover. 13
Science for Hire
Ferguson's predictions have been so far off the mark, fellow
academics have started referring to him as "The Master of Disaster."
Jan Schnitzer, a
vascular biology expert and former scientific director of the Sidney
Kimmel Cancer Center in San Diego is quoted 15 saying
"dances on the edge
of being a publicity-seeking charlatan."

Gates also has
close links to Dr.
Anthony Fauci, a key member of
the White House Coronavirus Task Force, so it's hard to
imagine Fauci has not been given a few talking points here and there
to help shepherd the masses.
Fauci was a member of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's
Global Grand Challenges scientific board 16
(described as a "family of initiatives fostering innovation to solve
key global health and development problems") 17 from 2003
until 2010, at which time he joined the Leadership Council of the
Gates Foundation's Decade of Vaccines Collaboration. 18
In 2012, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious
of which Fauci has been the director since 1984, also began forging
close ties with GAVI, The Vaccine Alliance. 19
The Bill & Melinda
Gates Foundation founded GAVI in 1999 and has permanent seats on
its board of directors. 20
Gates' War on
In an article highlighting her new book, Oneness vs. the 1%,
21 environmental activist Dr. Vandana Shiva
reviews Gates' global agenda and "war on life," highlighting the
March 2015 TED Talk 22 he gave in which he showed an
image of a coronavirus.
This, he said, was what,
catastrophe of our time would look like," Shiva writes.
"When the coronavirus pandemic swept over the earth like a
tsunami five years later, he revived the war language,

pandemic is not a war.

Health is about life and living systems. There is no 'life' in
the paradigm of health that Bill Gates and his ilk are promoting
and imposing on the entire world.
Gates has created
global alliances to impose top-down analysis and prescriptions
for health problems.
He gives money to define the problems, and then he uses his
influence and money to impose the solutions. And in the process,
he gets richer. His 'funding' results in an erasure of democracy
and biodiversity, of nature and culture.
His 'philanthropy' is
not just philanthro-capitalism. It is philanthro-imperialism...

of March 2020, for a cryptocurrency system based on human

others have accepted the data showing that COVID-19, in terms
of lethality, is no worse than influenza, poses an
exceptionally low risk for people under the age of 40 and virtually
no risk at all to young adults and children.
The WHO has published data showing the overall infection mortality
rate COVID-19 is about 0.6%, 26 and according to CDC data
27 released August 26, 2020, only 6% of the total
COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S. had COVID-19 listed as the sole
cause of death on the death certificate.
A September 2, 2020 study 28
found the overall
non-institutionalized infection fatality ratio was a mere 0.26%.
Among those under the
age of 40, the infection fatality ratio is 0.01%, while those
over 60 have an infection fatality ratio of 1.71%.
The estimated infection fatality rate for seasonal influenza is
0.8%, 29 so this shows the only people for whom
SARS-CoV-2 infection is more dangerous than influenza is those
over the age of 60.
Everyone else has a
lower risk of dying from COVID-19 than they have of dying from
White House coronavirus
task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx also confirmed a
lower than typically reported mortality rate when she, in mid-August
2020, stated that it,
"becomes more and
more difficult" to get people to comply with mask rules "when
people start to realize that 99% of us are going to be fine."
In her August 16, 2020,
Doctor for Disaster Preparedness 31 lecture, Dr.
Lee Merritt points out that,
based on deaths per
capita, the death rate for COVID-19, worldwide, is a minuscule
0.009% (709,000 people have died from or with COVID-19 around
the world, and the global population is 7.8 billion).
So, the average person's
chance of surviving this disease is 99.991%.
Live Life or
Hide Until You Die
Under normal circumstances, these data would convince just about
everyone that COVID-19 is not a significant threat.
Certainly, not sufficient
to meekly relinquish our most basic human rights.
of hardcore fear-mongering and censorship, largely spearheaded
by Gates and the WHO, which Gates is the largest
funder of, has led to a situation where people fear COVID-19 more
than just about everything else.
It is with that mindset that some people find themselves having to
make a choice to either live with the threat of COVID-19, or
continue hiding from it, which means ceasing to live indefinitely.
As noted in an "open
letter to world leaders" published on Secret-Retreats.com, the path
of hiding: 32
"… has but one
outcome, to condemn entire populations to misery, poverty,
hunger, economic ruin and physical death. There is no hope in
this path. COVID is here to stay.
We will probably
never have an effective vaccine (viruses by their very nature
constantly mutate) and so there is no hope of a safe exit from
The endgame of this strategy of closing a country, is the total
destruction of that country's economy, immense damage to the
health and welfare of society, and plunging that country's
future into darkness."
Meanwhile, the other
path, the path of accepting the risks associated with life,
"… offers a path
where there is hope for the future.
Where life can go on
as normal for the vast majority. It is a path where the rewards
will far outweigh the cost... [It] has become clear that for the
vast majority of people COVID presents no real risk of harm or
even symptomatic illness.
But is it possible to live without risk? Clearly not. A life
without risk is impossible.
Is it possible to
escape death? No. It is the very condition of living; life is
terminal for us all. And death comes to us in 1000s of forms,
not simply COVID.
We cannot hide
from death. How many people
have died through hiding in fear from a perceived threat from
How many people are dying daily as a direct result of COVID
policies through limited access to hospitals, health screening
not happening, cancer treatments not happening in a timely
manner, economic ruin driving people to make poor life choices
and turning to alcohol, drugs or suicide as the solution to the
problems dealt to them by COVID policies?...
What do we gain from these lockdowns, border closure policies?
Between a certain death and a hypothetical risk, isn't it better
to choose the risk? The risk of living life.
Why do you, our world
leaders, continue to choose to keep us all locked within this
eel trap of your own making?
Why don't you make what is clearly, and backed by the science...
the only sensible choice, of learning to live with COVID and
allowing us to get back to living LIFE?...
Let's dare to live with risk, as humans have done successfully
since the dawn of time.
We are at risk of

protecting the few people who are at risk of serious illness or
death from COVID.
And it is only 'possibly protecting' as even with these policies
in place the risk of infection is still there and always will

fight against "disinformation" is really a fight against facts
showing that the technocratic takeover is not an inevitable outcome
of a global pandemic, but rather the result of a long-term
