Description: The software mogul’s sway over the World Health Organization spurs criticism about misplaced priorities and undue influence.
Some billionaires are satisfied with buying themselves an island. Bill Gates got a United Nations health agency in Geneva. Over the past decade, the world’s richest man has become the World Health Organization’s second biggest donor, second only to the United States and just above the United Kingdom. This largesse gives him outsized influence over its agenda, one that could grow as the U.S. and the U.K. threaten to cut funding if the agency doesn’t make a better investment case. The result, say his critics, is that Gates’ priorities have become the WHO’s. Rather than focusing on strengthening health care in poor countries — that would help, in their view, to contain future outbreaks like the Ebola epidemic — the agency spends a disproportionate amount of its resources on projects with the measurable outcomes Gates prefers, such as the effort to eradicate polio. Concerns about the software billionaire’s sway — roughly a quarter of WHO’s budget goes toward polio eradication — has led to an effort to rein him in. But he remains a force to be reckoned with, as WHO prepares to elect one of three finalists to lead the organization. “All of the candidates are going to have to ally with him in some way,” said Sophie Harman, associate professor of international politics at Queen Mary University of London. “You can’t ignore him.” Evidence of Gates’ unprecedented influence abounds in ways subtle and showy. Already a decade ago, when Gates started throwing money into malaria eradication, top officials — including the chief of the WHO’s malaria program — raised concerns that the foundation was distorting research priorities. “The term often used was ‘monopolistic philanthropy’, the idea that Gates was taking his approach to computers and applying it to the Gates Foundation,” said a source close to the WHO board. The billionaire was the first private individual to keynote WHO’s general assembly of member countries, and academics have coined a term for his sway in global health: the Bill Chill. Few people dare to openly criticize what he does. Most of 16 people interviewed on the topic would only do so on the condition of anonymity. “He is treated liked a head of state, not only at the WHO, but also at the G20,” a Geneva-based NGO representative said, calling Gates one of the most influential men in global health. The member country delegates POLITICO spoke to did not voice particular concern over Gates’ influence and were confident he is well intentioned.



However, his sway has NGOs and academics worried. Some health advocates fear that because the Gates Foundation’s money 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. Others simply fear the U.N. body relies too much on Gates’ money, and that the entrepreneur could one day change his mind and move it elsewhere. Gates and his foundation team have heard the criticism, but they are convinced that the impact of their work and money is positive. “It’s always a fair question to ask whether a large philanthropy has a disproportionate influence,” said Bryan Callahan, deputy director for executive engagement at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. “When it comes to the priorities that the foundation has identified and that we choose to invest in, we hope that we are helping to create an enabling environment,” he said. Steve Landry, the Gates Foundation’s director of multilateral partnerships, said the foundation provides “significant funds” to program teams that then decide how to use them best.
Strings attached
The Gates Foundation has pumped more than $2.4 billion into the WHO since 2000, as countries have grown reluctant to put more of their own money into the agency, especially after the 2008 global financial crisis. Dues paid by member states now account for less than a quarter of WHO’s $4.5 billion biennial budget. The rest comes from what governments, Gates, other foundations and companies volunteer to chip in. Since these funds are usually earmarked for specific projects or diseases, WHO can’t freely decide how to use them. Polio eradication is by far WHO’s best-funded program, with at least $6 billion allocated to it between 2013 and 2019, in great part because around 60 percent of the Gates Foundation’s contributions are earmarked for the cause. Gates wants tangible results, and wiping out a crippling disease like polio would be one. But the focus on polio has effectively left WHO begging for funding for other programs, particularly to prop up poor countries’ health systems before the next epidemic hits. The Ebola crisis of 2014, which killed 11,000 people in West Africa, was a particularly bruising experience for WHO. An emergency program drawn up in the wake of the epidemic has so far received just around 60 percent of the $485 million needed for 2016-2017. Outgoing WHO boss Margaret Chan has also had to scale back her attempt to get countries to increase mandatory contributions for the first time in a decade. Chan initially hoped for a 10 percent hike, but WHO will end up asking for just 3 percent more this month after some countries objected. That makes the Gates Foundation’s input all the more important. “They come with a checkbook, and with some smart ideas,” said Laurie Garrett, a senior fellow for global health at the Council on Foreign Relations. Most of the Gates Foundation’s influence in the WHO is very discreet, she said, adding that it can also decide to take initiatives outside of the organization, as it did with GAVI, which helps the poorest countries buy vaccines in bulk at a discount, or with a recently launched Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, an alliance to develop vaccines for emerging infectious diseases. But the foundation’s focus on delivering vaccines and medicines, rather than on building resilient health systems, has drawn criticism. And some NGOs worry it may be too close to industry. In January, 30 health advocacy groups penned an open letter to WHO’s executive board protesting against making the Gates Foundation an official partner of the agency because its revenue comes from investments in companies that are at odds with public health goals, such as Coca-Cola. The Gates Foundation says it operates as a separate entity from the trust, thanks to a “strict firewall,” and that it remains independent from its investments, which strictly exclude the tobacco, alcohol or arms industries.
Fencing off big money
Worries about the growing role of private money led member nations to agree, after several years of negotiations, on a new policy governing how it engages with entities such as private foundations, companies and NGOs. It is currently being rolled out across the agency. Despite the criticism, WHO’s board granted the Gates Foundation "official relations" status. In practice, several sources said it does not change much to the relations WHO already had with the foundation. Gaudenz Silberschmidt, WHO’s director for partnerships, said the new status is based on a three-year collaboration plan: “That means we have a solid planning and we and member states know what we are doing with them.” The U.N. body also changed four years ago the way its budget is approved, to ensure member countries set its priorities. That means Gates can only put money into projects the 194 members support; the foundation cannot pitch a new one out of the blue and ask WHO to work on it right away just because it is providing the money. These changes have calmed some criticism of its growing influence over the health body, Silberschmidt and two sources close to the WHO board said. The foundation also seems to have got the message. Its representatives meet five to six times a year with other major donors to discuss the WHO’s priorities, and how it can support them, Landry said. Two representatives of major donor countries confirmed the foundation’s envoys had been very cooperative in recent years. “They’re much more inclusive. They bring in other stakeholders, talk to member states to really try to build consensus,” said one delegate.
With the best intentions
Gates’ influence over the WHO was called into question once again during the race to succeed Chan as its director general. The final three candidates include Sania Nishtar, a cardiologist from Pakistan who has pledged to take the agency “back to its former glory”; David Nabarro, a British physician and former U.N. special envoy for Ebola; and Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who has served as health minister and foreign minister in the Ethiopian government. Tedros, who like many in Ethiopia goes by his first name, is supported by the African Union. He has promised to reform the organization to better deal with crises like Ebola and to push for universal access to health care all over the world. Last year, a French diplomat suggested that Gates also supports Tedros, having funded health programs in his country when he was health minister. Several foundation officials have denied this, saying that the foundation cannot take a position given that it is not a voting member country and thus has to remain neutral. The new WHO boss will be selected by the member countries who have paid their membership fees on May 23, at an annual meeting in Geneva. Still, most country representatives who agreed to speak anonymously on the topic said they were not particularly concerned with the Gates Foundation’s influence on WHO. “I don’t think they have any bad intentions. They are just such a big player that as immediately as they put money down they can disrupt things,” said one Geneva-based diplomat. “As far as I can tell, people are really happy with anyone who is giving money,” said another. One big unknown is what will happen with the foundation’s money once it meets its target of eradicating polio, which started in the late 1980s and now appears to be nearing its goal. Chan has warned that if the polio money dries up in 2019, the global health body will be on the lookout for even more money. The Gates Foundation’s Landry said his colleagues were working with WHO and its polio team on a “transition plan” to ensure the programs currently funded by the polio effort don’t run into trouble once the money stops flowing. WHO is due to present a report on it to member countries in May. “The foundation’s impact on the WHO is enormous,” said Garrett, of the Council on Foreign Relations. “If they weren’t there, if they walked away with their money, the deleterious impact would be profound, and everyone is all too aware of that.”

Fauci & Gates Funded COVID Vaccine, Now Bad Data Surfaces…Will You Submit To Take It?

Fauci & Gates Funded COVID Vaccine, Now Bad Data Surfaces…Will You Submit To Take It?
CD Media

Category: Politics
Published: May 19, 2020

Description: Everyone, it seems, is excited. “mRNA-1273”, a COVID-19 vaccine produced by Moderna Therapeutics of Cambridge, MA, has cleared its first hurdle in testing. As hoped, all 45 participants in the initial trial produced antibodies to the virus after receiving the drug. Phase 2 testing is estimated to be complete by July. The market loved the news. The Dow rocketed up over 900 points yesterday. Finally, a nonpartisan reason to celebrate. Or is it? We had a pretty good reason to believe things would play out this way. Back in March, CDMedia reported the following:
Who will sell that vaccine? Very likely Moderna, a biotech funded by, you guessed it, the Gates Foundation. They have been studying coronaviruses for some time now. You could say they have a head start. They also work on HIV drugs like the kinds that have been found to be effective in treating COVID-19. One of the four drugs being fast-tracked by the WHO just happens to be made by…Moderna. It looks an awful lot like the same folks who may have infected the world are now seeking to profit from the cure.

Moderna is funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s NIAID, and Bill Gates, via one of his acronym vehicles, CEPI (Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations). Gates and Fauci officially began to fund coronavirus vaccines in January, but Gates has been funding Moderna since 2016, when he granted them nearly $20 million for virus research, but that time it was through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). When it comes to Fauci and the NIAID he has headed for nearly 40 years, the funding is a little trickier. As a federal employee, Fauci isn’t going to waltz into a private lab with a game show-sized check. Part of Fauci’s job is to maintain a veneer of professionalism in the transfer of funds from the public to private sector. Solution? More acronyms. Acronyms are shields from scrutiny. The groups behind them are bureaucracies steered by interested parties, collaborating to achieve grand, if often vague, goals. After 9/11, a great many such institutes, departments, and associations were formed. It was, if not the birth of the “deep state,” the radical deepening thereof. One large piece of the puzzle was Project BioShield. Congress passed the Project BioShield Act in 2004. Its mandate: to study and prepare for biological warfare. The U.S. has spent over $50 billion on the issue since the passage of the act. One of the many provisions of the act is to align the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) with the National Institutes of Health (NIH). One arm of the NIH is the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease (NIAID), headed by Dr. Fauci. When it comes to grantmaking, that’s done by the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), which is a division of HHS. The NIAID (Fauci) and HHS then petition BARDA for funding for private sector labs such as Moderna. These government employees, hidden beneath a pile of acronyms, are kingmakers. When they grant funds to a lab for research, fortunes are made and lost in the stock market. Guess who used to run the clearing house for all the Project BioShield money? Rick Bright, the latest “whistleblower” who made a splash last week after testifying to congress that he was squeezed out of his post due to his lack of support for hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), the inexpensive, widely available, time-tested drug that threw a wrench into the profit machine of Big Pharma. Bright claims he was forced out for not promoting HCQ. I trust the other side of this argument will be that Bright was insubordinate in order to promote the Moderna vaccine (and Gilead Sciences’ drug Remdesivir). Bill Gates was funding Moderna since 2016. Then, in January, Fauci and Bright selected Moderna to be one of a handful of labs to pursue a vaccine, and voila, Moderna wins the race. A stock that traded below $20 as recently as February briefly broke $80 per share yesterday. Fauci likes to keep a close eye on his investment, and the results. So the second part of the deal with Moderna is that the NIAID “partnered” with them to develop the vaccine. Fauci’s scientists are collaborating with Moderna’s to make sure the testing is done in-house, the same process used with Gilead Sciences and Remdesivir. Then Fauci steps to the microphone and gives his seal of approval in a press conference, despite a lack of a large, independent, double-blind trial. And no one questions this inequity, this because-I-said-so science. And what’s this? It turns out that Moderna withheld some key evidence in its first trial, as reported by Bloomberg News. The stock market crashed into the close, erasing a day of solid gains. Moderna is back down to $71.67 and investors are scratching their heads. The missing data will be released “at a later date,” according to a spokesperson. It appears that working in secret conditions with federal scientists with a political agenda can produce bad data. Perhaps an independent group of scientists should look at the Moderna study, and the Gilead Sciences/Remdesivir one as well. After Fauci is fired. It all boils down to this, dear CDMedia reader: based on what you know about Gates and Fauci, will you take the vaccine they plan to have ready by year-end? A vaccine for a disease they funded? A disease created through controversial gain-of-function research in China? Lastly, will you have a choice?

The Slippery Slope to Despotism: Paved with Lockdowns, Raids and Forced Vaccinations

Description: “You have no right not to be vaccinated, you have no right not to wear a mask, you have no right to open up your business… And if you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor's office and plunge a needle into your arm.”—Alan Dershowitz, Harvard law professor

dershowitz-epstein.jpg
You have the right to be suicided. And if you refuse....

You have no rights. That’s the lesson the government wants us to learn from this COVID-19 business. Well, the government is wrong. For years now, the powers-that-be—those politicians and bureaucrats who think like tyrants and act like petty dictators regardless of what party they belong to—have attempted to brainwash us into believing that we have no right to think for ourselves, make decisions about our health, protect our homes and families and businesses, act in our best interests, demand accountability and transparency from government, or generally operate as if we are in control of our own lives. We have every right, and you know why? Because we were born free. As the Declaration of Independence states, we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights—to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness—that no government can take away from us. Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped the government from constantly trying to usurp our freedoms at every turn. Indeed, the nature of government is such that it invariably oversteps its limits, abuses its authority, and flexes its totalitarian muscles. Take this COVID-19 crisis, for example. What started out as an apparent effort to prevent a novel coronavirus from sickening the nation (and the world) has become yet another means by which world governments (including our own) can expand their powers, abuse their authority, and further oppress their constituents. Until now, the police state has been more circumspect in its power grabs, but this latest state of emergency has brought the beast out of the shadows. We are on a slippery slope to outright despotism. This road we are traveling is paved with lockdowns, SWAT team raids, mass surveillance and forced vaccinations. It is littered with the debris of our First and Fourth Amendment freedoms. This is what we have to look forward to in the months and years to come unless we can find some way to regain control over our runaway government. The government has made no secret of its plans. Just follow the money trail, and you’ll get a sense of what’s in store: more militarized police, more SWAT team raids, more surveillance, more lockdowns, more strong-armed tactics aimed at suppressing dissent and forcing us to comply with the government’s dictates. It’s chilling to think about, but it’s not surprising. We’ve been warned. Remember that Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command? The one that anticipates the future domestic political and social problems the government is grooming its armed forces to solve through the use of martial law? The chilling five-minute training video, obtained by The Intercept through a FOIA request and made available online, paints a dystopian picture of the future bedeviled by “criminal networks,” “substandard infrastructure,” “religious and ethnic tensions,” “impoverishment, slums,” “open landfills, over-burdened sewers,” a “growing mass of unemployed,” and an urban landscape in which the prosperous economic elite must be protected from the impoverishment of the have nots. But here’s the kicker: what they’re really talking about is martial law, packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security. This COVID-19 crisis is pushing us that much closer to that dystopian vision becoming a present-day reality. For starters, let’s talk about the COVID-19 stormtroopers, SWAT team raids and ongoing flare-ups of police brutality. With millions of dollars in stimulus funds being directed towards policing agencies across the country, the federal government plans to fight this COVID-19 virus with riot gear, gas masks, ballistic helmets, drones, and hi-tech surveillance technology. Indeed, although crime rates have fallen dramatically in the midst of this global COVID-19 lockdown, there’s been no relief from the brutality and violence of the American police state. While the majority of the country has been social distancing under varying degrees of lockdowns, it’s been business as usual for the nation’s SWAT teams and police trained to shoot first and ask questions later. In Kentucky, plain-clothed cops in unmarked cars used a battering ram to break down Breonna Taylor’s door and carry out a no-knock raid on her home after midnight. Fearing a home invasion, the 26-year-old emergency medical technician and her boyfriend—who had been in bed at the time of the invasion—called 911 and prepared to defend themselves. Taylor’s boyfriend shot one of the intruders—later identified as police—in the leg. Police fired at least 20 shots into the apartment and a neighboring home, killing Taylor. The drug dealer who was the target of the late-night raid lived 10 miles away and had already been arrested prior to the raid on Taylor’s home. In Illinois, police opened fire in a subway station, shooting a 33-year-old man who allegedly resisted their attempts to tackle and arrest him for violating a city ordinance by passing between two cars of a moving train. Ariel Roman, a short-order cook, claimed he was suffering from an anxiety attack when he was “harassed, chased, tackled, pepper-sprayed, tasered and shot twice” by police. In Maryland, police dispatched on a nuisance call to break up a crowd of neighborhood kids( half of them teenagers, and the other half youngsters around 4 and 5 years old) gathered in an apartment complex parking lot opened fire on a 29-year-old man seen exiting his car with a gun. An eyewitness claimed “the officer pointed a flashlight and his gun at the group immediately and began chasing and shooting a minute or two after getting out of the patrol car.” Police reportedly shot the man after he threw down his gun and ran in the opposite direction. In Virginia, more than 80 local, state, and federal police agents risked spreading COVID-19 to “a highly vulnerable population” when they raided a low income, public housing community in an effort to crack down on six individuals suspected of selling, on average, $20 to $100 worth of drugs. In Texas, a SWAT team backed up with a military tank Armored Personnel Carrier raided Big Daddy Zane’s Bar whose owner and patrons were staging a peaceful First and Second Amendment protest of the governor’s shutdown orders. Police have even been called out to shut down churches, schools and public parks and beaches that have been found “in violation” of various lockdown orders. Now there’s talk of mobilizing the military to deliver forced vaccinations, mass surveillance in order to carry out contact tracing, and heavy fines and jail time for those who dare to venture out without a mask, congregate in worship without the government’s blessing, or re-open their businesses without the government’s say-so. There are rumblings that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will start thermal screenings to monitor passengers’ temperatures in coming weeks. This is in addition to the virtual strip searches that have become routine aspects of airport security. Restaurants in parts of the country are being tasked with keeping daily logs of phone numbers, emails, and arrival times for everybody who participates in dine-services, with no mention of how long such records will be kept on file, with whom they will be shared, and under what circumstances. With the help of Google and Nest cameras, hospitals are morphing into real-time surveillance centers with round-the-clock surveillance cameras monitoring traffic in patients’ rooms. Forget patient privacy, however. Google has a track record of sharing surveillance footage with police. And then rounding out the power-grabs, the Senate just voted to give police access to web browsing data without a warrant, which would dramatically expand the government’s Patriot Act surveillance powers. The Senate also voted to give Attorney General William Barr the ability to look through the web browsing history of any American — including journalists, politicians, and political rivals — without a warrant, just by saying it is relevant to an investigation. If enacted, privacy experts warn that the new provisions threaten to undermine the free press by potentially preventing the media from exposing abuses of power or acting as a watchdog against political leaders. If we haven’t already crossed over, we’re skating dangerously close to that line that keeps us on the functioning side of a constitutional republic. It won’t take much to push us over that edge into a full-blown banana republic. In many ways, this is just more of the same heavy-handed tactics we’ve been seeing in recent years but with one major difference: this COVID-19 state of emergency has invested government officials (and those who view their lives as more valuable than ours) with a sanctimonious, self-righteous, arrogant, Big Brother Knows Best approach to top-down governing, and the fall-out can be seen far and wide. It’s an ugly, self-serving mindset that views the needs, lives and rights of “we the people” as insignificant when compared to those in power. That’s how someone who should know better such as Alan Dershowitz, a former Harvard law professor, can suggest that a free people—born in freedom, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights, and living in a country birthed out of a revolutionary struggle for individual liberty—have no rights to economic freedom, to bodily integrity, or to refuse to comply with a government order with which they disagree. According to Dershowitz, who has become little more than a legal apologist for the power elite, “You have no right not to be vaccinated, you have no right not to wear a mask, you have no right to open up your business… And if you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor's office and plunge a needle into your arm.” Dershowitz is wrong: while the courts may increasingly defer to the government’s brand of Nanny State authoritarianism, we still have rights. The government may try to abridge those rights, it may refuse to recognize them, it may even attempt to declare martial law and nullify them, but it cannot litigate, legislate or forcefully eradicate them out of existence. Up to now, we’ve been largely passive participants in this experiment in self-governance. Our inaction and inattention has left us at the mercy of power-hungry politicians, corrupt corporations and brutal, government-funded militias. Wake up, America. As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, these ongoing violations of our rights—this attitude by the government that we have no rights—this tyrannical movement that is overtaking our constitutional republic and gaining in momentum and power by the minute—this incessant auction block in which government officials appointed to represent our best interests keep selling us out to the highest bidder—all of these betrayals scream for a response. To quote the great Rod Serling: “If we don't listen to that scream—and if we don't respond to it—we may well wind up sitting amidst our own rubble, looking for the truck that hit us—or the bomb that pulverized us. Get the license number of whatever it was that destroyed the dream. And I think we will find that the vehicle was registered in our own name.”

Horrific Orwellian Trend: “Don’t Question, Just Obey”

Horrific Orwellian Trend: “Don’t Question, Just Obey”
Craig Huey

URL: https://www.craighuey.com/horrific-orwe ... just-obey/
Category: Politics
Published: April 13, 2020

Description: In watching local and national media, I’ve noticed several commentators as well as news teams say the same basic thing. I couldn’t believe they said this, “Don’t question, just obey.”

OBEY.jpg

When you see politicians, media, bureaucrats, and “experts” wanting blind obedience – it’s time to question why. This is what you would have heard in Nazi Germany. This is what you would have heard in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics – the USSR. This is what you would have heard today in Socialist Communist China. This is what you would have heard in other communist countries like Venezuela and Cuba. This is what you would have heard from authoritarian leaders demanding obedience to the state. Now we are being told this in America:
* Don’t question the medical establishment… Just Obey.
* Don’t question the data models… Just Obey.
* Don’t question the quarantine… Obey.
* Don’t question government overreach… Just Obey.
* Don’t question government action on the economic shut down… Just Obey.
Obeying is not what America is about; it’s not what Freedom is about. Questioning. That is what America is about. That is what the First Amendment is about. Be very, very careful about not questioning and only obeying. Truth demands questioning – especially those in authority. Especially those who want to hold themselves up as the authority experts. Especially, of those who want to take your individual rights and freedom away … for your own good.

Coronavirus Shows Why We Need Separation of Medicine and State!

Coronavirus Shows Why We Need Separation of Medicine and State!
Ron Paul Institute

Published: June 8, 2020

Description: It seems like only yesterday. Americans were denied the right to go to their churches. They were denied the right to visit their loved ones in the hospital. They were denied the right to open their businesses and go to work to provide for themselves and their families. They were denied the right to go to restaurants, to bars, to hair salons. No laws were passed denying these rights. Even that would be illegal and immoral. But what happened was worse. They were denied these basic rights by governors, county judges, and even local mayors who used the coronavirus outbreak as an excuse to rule by decree. They stole power that was not theirs to take and wielded it at all levels to force America into three months of house arrest. Then, in the midst of stay-at-home orders across the country, the same governors and local officials who locked Americans in their homes suddenly came around with their keys and threw open the doors. Suddenly not only was it OK to go out into the street, it was required to go out into the street! What happened? A cure? A miraculous vaccine? No. The officials who locked Americans up found a cause they felt required Americans in the streets to protest. Police had killed a black man, George Floyd, in their custody in Minneapolis and suddenly the need to protest trumped the need to “stay home, save lives.” Suddenly the same health “experts” who told us we must not gather in crowds or there will be death in the millions from coronavirus issued statements supporting gathering in crowds. An open letter on the George Floyd protests signed by more than 1,200 doctors and other health professionals clarified that they “do not condemn these gatherings as risky for Covid-19 transmission.” However, they wrote, “this should not be confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-at-home orders.” Did the coronavirus develop some kind of superior intelligence enabling it to distinguish between those who were congregating for a “good cause” and those who were congregating for a “bad cause”? Of course not. What has happened from the beginning of this shameful coronavirus episode is the politicization of public health at the hands of authoritarians. Two prestigious medical journals, The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine, were forced to retract studies they had published concluding that Hydroxychloroquine was harmful to Covid patients. The rush to print the studies looks very much like a political move rather than one based on scientific principles. Once President Trump revealed that he was taking hydroxychloroquine the mainstream media and even “expert” journals began attacking the drug. This is what happens when medicine merges with the state. We get the worst of both. We get career bureaucrat Dr. Fauci telling us we can never shake hands again and that we must stay home until a vaccine is found. Meanwhile, doctors across the globe are reporting that this variation of the coronavirus is disappearing on its own. We have a tradition of separation of church and state in the United States for good reason. The merger of state and church invites oppression and corruption. We need to adopt this same approach to medicine and the state. We now see how this merger has produced the same kind of widespread tyranny and corruption.

AGENDA 21: The socialist plan to use coronavirus pandemic for GLOBAL CONTROL
The Blaze

URL: https://www.theblaze.com/glenn-tv/agenda-21-pandemic
Category: Politics
Published: April 26, 2020

Description: They've been planning this for decades
In the 1990s, the United Nations drafted "Agenda 21" -- their plan for defeating climate change. In 2015, it was re-branded by socialists into "Agenda 30," but neither had anything to do with global warming and everything to do with using it to reshape our political world. Starting last year, the push for Agenda 30 wasn't just about climate change, but about fighting future global pandemics as well. In October 2019, some of the world's most powerful business and political leaders met to discuss how to prepare for such a crisis. And now we have the coronavirus outbreak reaching every corner of the world. It's becoming clearer everyday that socialists are going to use this pandemic to achieve their ultimate goal: global control. Watch the video below to hear Glenn Beck break down the details:

With election rigging via mail-in ballots, the real purpose of the COVID bioweapon now becomes clear

Description: (Natural News) It’s now abundantly clear that the real purpose of the engineered COVID-19 bioweapon was to allow Democrats to steal the election via mail-in ballot fraud. By deploying the coronavirus weapon in China and allowing it to spread globally (thanks to the WHO and left-wing media calling Trump a “racist” for trying to close flights from China), the globalists were able to engineer long-duration lockdowns across America in defiance of medical or scientific justification. The real purpose of these lockdowns was three-fold:
1. Crush the domestic economy and blame Trump for poor economic performance.
2. Cancel in-person voting and justify mail-in ballots, allowing massive election fraud by Democrats.
3. Keep children home from school, allowing them to vote by using the mail-in ballots that were sent to them by the Dems. (Yes, children were filling out ballots and voting for Biden.)
The fake news media’s role in all this was to counter the truth at every level with lies and propaganda:
* To falsely claim the Wuhan coronavirus was “natural” and came from bats rather than being engineered as a weapon.
* To push for lockdowns all the way through the election by dishonestly reporting positive coronavirus tests as “cases” in order to claim the pandemic was still a huge threat. (Have you noticed how quickly the pandemic disappeared once the media proclaimed Joe Biden the winner?)
* Run fake polls in favor of Joe Biden to support the election rigging that they knew was about to take place. The fake polls were necessary to align with the rigged results which required Dems to manufacture hundreds of thousands of Joe Biden votes in key swing states.
* Call for Big Tech to censor all pro-Trump channels, voices and news organizations in order to control the narrative and silence any criticism of the Biden crime family.
Big Tech’s role in all this, of course, was to carry out the censorship and do the bidding of communist China, making sure Biden — whose entire family is on China’s payroll — “wins” the election no matter what. Even now, anyone who posts truthful, factual information about voting irregularities is silenced by Twitter and Facebook.
So far 450,000 fraudulent ballots have been identified in swing states, with more to come
Attorney Sidney Powell has just made a huge declaration about the rigged votes, appearing with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures and saying: There has been a massive and coordinated effort to steal this election from We The People of the United States of America to delegitimize and destroy votes for Donald Trump. To manufacture votes for Joe Biden. They’ve done it in every way imaginable, from having dead people vote in record numbers, to absolutely fraudulently creating ballots that exist only for voting for Biden. We’ve identified over 450,000 ballots that miraculously only have a vote for Joe Biden on them and no other candidate. If you look at Florida where things were done right you can see that that is how the rest of the country should have gone. But they also used an algorithm to calculate the number of votes they would need to flip. And they used computers to flip those votes from Trump to Biden and from other Republican candidates to their competitors also. In other words, there were 450,000 ballots were the only vote was for Joe Biden and no one else down ballot. Yesterday, Bill Gates congratulated Joe Biden for his “win,” since Bill Gates can’t wait for a President Biden to declare mandatory vaccines, mandatory masks and mandatory lockdowns. The COVID plandemic played a key role in all this, even in suppressing Trump rallies and stripping away personal freedoms from the American people. No wonder Barack Obama directed Dr. Fauci to funnel NIH money into the Wuhan Virology Institute to help build this bioweapon. It was created from the very beginning to be a weapon deployed against America (and the American people) in order to allow the treasonous, criminal Democrats to steal the 2020 election. Now the question becomes: Will the American people allow this treason to succeed? Hell no, we say. Fight for Trump like your life depended on it… because it does. If Biden becomes President, America falls to the globalists and the communists, and even those Americans who supported Biden will soon find their own heads on the chopping block.

Top Pandemic Scientist Admits Emulating Communist Chinese Model to Strip Civil Liberties Away

Top Pandemic Scientist Admits Emulating Communist Chinese Model to Strip Civil Liberties Away

Description: Professor Neil Ferguson, an epidemiologist who played a key role in convincing the British government to adopt lockdowns, revealed that the country’s lockdowns were meant to emulate those carried out by the Chinese Communist Party – modeled to strip civil liberties and exert authoritarian control over citizens. In Ferguson’s recent interview with The Times, he revealed that lockdowns he championed as part of Britain’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) Board, were rooted in those carried out by the Chinese Communist Party. Dubbed “Professor Lockdown” by many for his contributions to swaying the British government to adopt stringent lockdown measures, Ferguson ultimately stepped down from the SAGE board after he violated his own lockdown protocols. In the December 25th interview, he noted that “there is an enormous cost associated with” lockdowns, especially concerning the restriction of civil liberties. He notes, however, once the Chinese Communist Party enacted their repressive lockdown “people’s sense of what is possible in terms of control changed”:
“I think people’s sense of what is possible in terms of control changed quite dramatically between January and March. […]If China had not done it the year would have been very different.”

While Ferguson was “skeptical at first” that China had “flattened the curve,” adding he “thought it was a massive cover-up by the Chinese,” he reveals the Chinese Communist Party’s data was what convinced him that lockdowns were “effective policy.” Leaked documents reveal and even establishment media reports now concede that data emanating from the Chinese Communist Party at the onset of the pandemic – the impetus behind Ferguson championing lockdowns – was faulty.
He insists again in the interview that Britain’s lockdowns were designed to emulate those executed by the a “communist one-party state”, specifically the Chinese Communist Party:
“It’s a communist one-party state, we said. We couldn’t get away with it in Europe, we thought. And then Italy did it. And we realized we could.”
