This article lists the already reported facts which connect billionaire Bill Gates to the mass vaccination program. The motive as to why exactly the billionaire would desire to play such a part in this program cannot really be known for certain. However, it can be stated without hesitation that the Covid19 pandemic and global vaccination drive put Gates in a unique situation to further dominate world health through the various connections and organizations mentioned in the article. Gates has been largely influential on world health prior to Covid19 but the details in the below article only cover his connection to what we can easily call the Covid19 pharmaceutical mafia.
The facts here published can also be found on the open source journal called The Corbett Report. It is primarily by the work of Journalist James Corbett that I became acquainted with many of the details herein discussed. I encourage all of you to visit The Corbett Report for more unfiltered information.
Bill Gates & The Global Vaccination Program
Gates as prophet?
Since the beginning of the global spread of Covid19, concerns about Billionaire Bill Gates’s involvement in the mass vaccination program have been spreading online. Much of these concerns began to go mainstream and spread throughout the world when the video of a TED Talk from April 2015 given by Gates was revisited by the public. In this video Gates said, “If anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades, it’s most likely to be a highly infectious virus.” Further, in 2017 during the Munich Security conference Gates said “Whether it occurs by a quirk of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists show through their models that a respiratory-spread pathogen would kill more than 30 million people in less than a year. And there is a reasonable probability of that taking place in the years ahead.”
Although the number of people to have died from Covid19 is significantly less than the numbers predicted by Gates in his speeches, his somewhat random ability to predict the Covid19 outbreak is alarming.
In 2017, during an interview with The Wall Street Journal, at the World Economic Forum, Gates for the first time announced the possibility of an RNA vaccine being used in the future saying “Unfortunately, it takes many years to do a completely new vaccine. The design, the safety review, the manufacturing; all of those things mean that an epidemic can be very widespread before that tool would come along. And so after Ebola, the global health community talked a lot about this, including a new type of vaccine platform called DNA/RNA that should speed things along.”
These never before used DNA/RNA vaccines are precisely what are today used as anti-Covid19 vaccines, making the Covi19 vaccines a novelty again foreseen by Gates. The reasoning behind the implementation of the RNA vaccine is that the production of the vaccine is faster and therefore more profitable to vaccine manufacturers.
Gates has also been received favorably and defended repeatedly by the media. All members of the Trusted News Initiative (TNI) paint Gates as a saint. The TNI aims to “work together to ensure legitimate concerns about future vaccinations are heard whilst harmful disinformation myths are stopped in their tracks.” The PBS News Admitted in 2010 that “the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is a NewsHour underwriter.” Additionally, Gates has recently been given the spotlight on several mainstream shows including the Ellen show where the billionaire, software engineer was consulted as a vaccine expert.
Quite prophetically, before any major head of state said vaccination would be required, Gates, very early on in the pandemic, set the tone for what would need to happen before anything goes back to normal, namely mass vaccination. In April 2020 several mainstream media organizations gave Gates an uncontested chance to spew the mass vaccine agenda.
Below are direct quotations from Gates during April 2020:
“The vaccine is critical, because, until you have that, things aren’t really going to be normal. They can open up to some degree, but the risk of a rebound will be there until we have very broad vaccination.“
(PBS NewsHour, April 7, 2020)
“We’re gonna have this intermediate period of opening up, and it won’t be normal until we get an amazing vaccine to the entire world.”
(CNBC, April 9, 2020)
“They won’t be back to normal until we either have that phenomenal vaccine or a therapeutic that’s, like, over 95% effective. And so we have to assume that’s going to be almost 18 months from now.”
(NBC’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, April 13, 2020)
“And then the final solution—which is a year or two years off—is the vaccine. So we’ve got to go full-speed ahead on all three fronts.”
(The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, April 27, 2020)
Despite having no experience or qualification in epidemiology, Gates’s authority on the subject matter became quite evident when heads of state, scientists, and the global mainstream media began emulating the exact vaccination program and policy initially mentioned by Gates in April 2020. Heads of state even emulated the 18-month time frame which is quite astonishing granted it has zero scientific fact to be found behind it.
Below are some citations to prove this claim:
“COVID-19 will be here for the next 18 months or more. We will not be able to return to normalcy until we find a vaccine or effective medications.”
(Dr. Zeke Emanuel, April 7, 2020)
“This will be the new normal until a vaccine is developed.”
(Canadian PM, Justin Trudeau, April 9, 2020)
“The hard fact is, until we have a vaccine, going back to normal means putting lives at risk.”
(Premier Doug Ford, April 18, 2020)
“Obviously, we continue to work on the vaccines, but the vaccines have to be down the road by probably 14, 15, 16 months. We’re doing great on the vaccines.“
(Then President Donald Trump)
Getting the “science” out
Obviously, it would take a lot more work and proof than the suggestion of Gates and the leaders of independent nations to justify the policies to come, namely the maskings and lockdowns that would lead to an eventual vaccination mandate. As with the other social issues, a “scientific study” would need to be done by a “credible research team” in order to “prove” that the lockdowns, masks, and social distancing policies made sense until mass vaccination could be achieved.
Forcing people into a “scientifically backed” lockdown (where they lose their income and normal life) is a very important part of the vaccination scheme, since, if everyone is threatened by the loss of job opportunity and social interaction, it would be far easier to get them to take the vaccine. In simpler terms, the vaccine would be marketed as enabling a normal to resume that was taken by the virus. It was two Gates-funded research institutes that brought the “science” to the table regarding social distancing policies. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (in the US) and the Imperial College COVID-19 Research Team (in the UK). Both issued “scientific” documents proving the need for lockdowns in both the US and UK. Both the Imperial College and IHME issued their report during March 2020.
In 2017, the Gates Foundation announced a 10-year $279 million investment into the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation to expand its work by collecting health data and creating models. Then in 2020, the Gates Foundation gave $79 million to Imperial College.
The governments of the US and UK would use these reports and their projected death figures to justify the social distancing and lockdown policies that came shortly after the studies and reports were published. The rest of the world would, in turn, use the US and UK as examples to live by while the WHO began publishing information on the same narrative.
Gates’s vaccination involvement
Gates, through his Foundation, had been planning for a largescale vaccination program for over 15 years with vaccines becoming the Gates Foundation’s number-one priority in 2010.
In Jan 2010 the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced at the World Economic Forum a staggering $10 billion commitment to research and develop vaccines for the world’s poorest countries. Gates said this would be the beginning of the “Decade of Vaccines.” Bill Gates’s Wife, Melinda Gates, said during the forum that “We’ve made vaccines our number-one priority at the Gates Foundation because we’ve seen firsthand their incredible impact on children’s lives.”
Prior to Covid19, while normal life was still in progress and vaccines were not at the forefront of political and social life, Gates was strategically forming alliances for the future mass vaccination program.
In 2011 Gates aids the launch of the vaccine alliance known as GAVI, promising an initial investment of 1 billion dollars. The Gates Foundation is now an official part of the GAVI alliance along with UNICEF, the World Bank, and the WHO. Unknown vaccine manufacturers, private businesses, research agencies, and various governments are also a part of the GAVI alliance. The goal of GAVI “includes introducing new vaccines into the routine schedules of national immunisation programmes.”
This GAVI alliance also engages in “market shaping efforts“, with the aim of creating “healthy markets for vaccines and other immunization products.”
It is also important to remember that the WHO itself is funded in part by Bill Gates. This can be seen on the WHO’s 72nd World Health Assembly, (A72/INF./5) Provisional agenda item 15.2. Hence, Gates also aided in the founding of the Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) which is administered by the WHO and was “developed to help realize the vision of the Decade of Vaccines.”
With the above considered, one can see how it is that Gates and his Foundation with their partnering organizations (the UN, WHO, World Bank) and vaccine manufacturers were very well positioned and prepared for the viral outbreak we are now experiencing. Covid would provide the perfect market opportunity desired by this interlocking system organized and funded in large part by Gates.
Not only was the GAVI group aware that a virus may occur as it has, but they already had plans to solve the problem when it would transpire and had already done the necessary market preparations. For this reason, Gates was one of the very first to announce that normalcy would never be possible without the introduction of mass vaccination, after all, he was speaking on the close of a declared “decade of vaccines.”
Creating Vaccine Markets since 2006
In 2006, the (CGD) Center for Global Development released a series of interviews discussing a detailed report from 2005 titled “Making Markets for Vaccines.” Owen Barder, the lead author of the report and director of CGD at the time, appeared in the video saying that the vaccine markets would best be created by getting independent nations around the world to agree to purchase vaccines that did not yet exist. Admitting the novelty in the idea, Barder said “this idea was unfamiliar. No government had made a commitment to buy a product that didn’t already exist.”
This is precisely what happened. The report was endorsed by the G-7 Finance ministers and several independent governments agreed to participate and purchase vaccines in the future once they are created. In the description to the CGD’s video about the “Making Markets for Vaccines” report, it says “The G-7 Finance Ministers endorsed the approach and five donors (Canada, Italy, Norway, UK and Russia, and the Gates Foundation) committed $1.5 billion to create an incentive for a vaccine against the strains of pneumococcus disease prevalent in low-income countries.”
Additionally, another co-author of this report was “Alice Albright, a member of the working group who was then CFO of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization.” This “Global Alliance for Vaccines” is none other than the same GAVI mentioned above. Albright helped “tell the story of moving this innovative proposal [marketing non-existent vaccines] from idea to action.”
Although GAVI was seemingly launched in 2010 with the aid of Gates, it existed before as the Global Alliance for Vaccines. The connections of GAVI, the CGD, Gates Foundation, UNICEF, World Bank, United Nations, the G7/Central Bank, and WHO are all indisputable. Further evidence can be seen in that the CGD was founded in part by Nancy Birdsall who is the former Director of the Policy Research Department at the World Bank, she also became the Center’s first President. The CGD’s website states “CGD’s work offers new ideas and practical suggestions for making the World Bank more effective, accountable, and legitimate in a rapidly changing global economy.” Additionally, it is of importance to note that the Gates Foundation is the largest funder of the CGD.
The ties to the Gates Foundation and Vaccine producing organizations and groups can also be seen in Trevor Mundel. Mundel is the president of global health at the Gates Foundation. “Prior to joining the foundation in 2011, Trevor was global head of development with Novartis and previously was involved in clinical research at Pfizer and Parke-Davis.“
Event 201, preparing for “A” pandemic… a month before “THE” pandemic
A month before the Covid19 pandemic outbreak occurred, a rather strange “event” surrounding the very topic of a viral pandemic took place. The event was called “event 201” and one of the main “players” of the event was Dr. Christopher Elias. Dr. Elias is President of the Global Development Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Other players included: Sofia Borges, the UN Foundation’s Senior Vice President and Head of the New York office, Jane Halton, a member of the US Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (The same Gates-funded IHME mentioned above ), Stephen C. Redd, the Deputy Director for Public Health Service and Implementation Science at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Hasti Taghi, chief of staff capacity at a major media company, also leads strategic initiatives for the office, including partnerships with the World Economic Forum, and Adrian Thomas, Vice President Global Public Health, at Johnson & Johnson. The Exercise team at event 201 was lead by “Ryan Morhard, JD, the exercise lead from the World Economic Forum, and Jeffrey French is the exercise lead for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.“
Event 201 “was a 3.5-hour pandemic tabletop exercise that simulated a series of dramatic, scenario-based facilitated discussions, confronting difficult, true-to-life dilemmas associated with response to a hypothetical, but scientifically plausible, pandemic.” Event 201 cites the World Economic Forum which predicted since Jan 2019 that “Pandemics will be the cause of average annual economic losses of 0.7% of global GDP – or $570 billion – a threat similar in scale to that estimated for climate change in the coming decades.”
Event 201 ends up saying exactly what the 2005 “Making Markets for Vaccines” report does by saying “the players’ responses to the scenario illuminated the need for cooperation among industry, national governments, key international institutions, and civil society, to avoid the catastrophic consequences that could arise from a large-scale pandemic. There have been important efforts to engage the private sector in epidemic and outbreak preparedness at the national or regional level. However, there are major unmet global vulnerabilities and international system challenges posed by pandemics that will require new robust forms of public-private cooperation to address.”
Event 201 was a simulated pandemic exercise used to get big governments to partner with big businesses, specifically big pharma in order to push and agree on profitable solutions should the simulated pandemic occur. Dr. Tom Inglesby, the Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security at the Bloomberg School of Public Health said “We’re at the start of what’s looking like it will be a severe pandemic and there are problems emerging that can only be solved by global business and governments working together.” Dr. Redd (see above) said “Governments need to be willing to do things that are out of their historical perspective, or . . . for the most part. It’s really a war footing that we need to be on.”
The Gates and Fauci collaborrations
Journalist James Corbett notes that collaboration and cooperation between Fauci and Gates had occurred decades prior to the Covid outbreak. “In 2010, Dr. Fauci was appointed to the Leadership Council of the Gates-founded “Decade of Vaccines” project to implement a Global Vaccine Action Plan—a project to which Gates committed $10 billion of funding.”
“Fauci and Gates have known each other for more than a decade, often collaborating on the Foundation’s vaccine efforts. They worked together on the Foundation’s Global Vaccine Action Plan, in which Fauci served on the leadership council. They also worked together through a collaboration between the Foundation and the National Institutes of Health aimed at developing gene-based therapies for HIV and sickle cell disease.” – Wall St Journal
Corbett notes that a month prior to the covid pandemic, October 2020, a $100 million contribution was made by the Gates Foundation to “the National Institute of Health to help, among other programs, Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ research into HIV.”
Mainstream sources say Dr. Fauci and Gates “talk regularly these days” and that they “mostly talk about ending the pandemic.” Gates told the Washington Post “we’re talking a lot about these variants and what that will do.” Part of the discussions between Fauci and Gates today include the “need to create a new variant of the vaccine” to deal with the new strains of Covid19.

The dual foundation of Gates
With the extreme wealth Gates has managed to gain through his success with Microsoft in the software industry, he has positioned himself strategically through his apparent non-for-profit organizations, giving him tremendous influence and a very powerful position in the industry of global health.
The Corbett report notes that “the whole process has been cloaked in the mantle of selfless philanthropy, but the foundation is not structured as a charitable endeavor. Instead, it maintains a dual structure: the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation distributes money to grantees, but a separate entity, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust, manages the endowment assets. These two entities often have overlapping interests, and, as has been noted many times in the past, grants given by the foundation often directly benefit the value of the trust’s assets.”
Vaccines have not worked on Coronaviruses in the past
It is no surprise, to say the least, that the Gates-funded and supported global health community has been pushing for no normal life until mass vaccination. However, it is quite shocking to discover that to make this claim (even before the vaccines were rolled out and failed) had no scientific basis. From as early as April 6, 2020, medical professionals said that a vaccine for immunization against Covid19 is more than likely to be impossible, citing the fact that no vaccine has worked against previous coronaviruses such as SARS and MERS.
Producing a vaccine in such a short space of time (18 months given by Gates), without running through the necessary precautionary tests could even lead to “disease enhancement.” Vaccine-induced enhancement of viral infections has been a vaccine developing risk that is sufficiently studied and known. Disease enhancement through vaccination was even cited by Fauci as a top safety issue in relation to the distribution of Covid19 vaccines. Fauci said on March 26, 2020, “Now, the issue of safety. Something that I want to make sure the American public understand: It’s not only safety when you inject somebody and they get maybe an idiosyncratic reaction, they get a little allergic reaction, they get pain. There’s safety associated. “Does the vaccine make you worse?” And there are diseases in which you vaccinate someone, they get infected with what you’re trying to protect them with, and you actually enhance the infection.”
In 2012 a study on mice was published in which this vaccine-induced enhancement of viral infections was proven to occur through the use of “SARS Coronavirus Vaccines.” It was found that “SARS-CoV vaccines led to the occurrence of Th2-type immunopathology suggesting hypersensitivity to SARS-CoV components was induced. Caution in proceeding to application of a SARS-CoV vaccine in humans is indicated.”
Dr. Peter Hotez, a vaccine scientist, testified regarding coronavirus vaccine development and unique safety challenges at the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Hearing on Coronavirus in March 2020. Among his concerns was “the unique potential safety problems of coronavirus vaccines. This was first found in the 1960s with the Respiratory Syncytial Virus vaccines, and it was done in Washington with the NIH and Children’s National Medical Center. Some of those kids who got the vaccine actually did worse, and I believe there were two deaths as a consequence of that study. Because what happens with certain types of respiratory virus vaccines, you get immunized, and then when you get actually exposed to the virus, you get this kind of paradoxical immune enhancement phenomenon, and what—and we don’t entirely understand the basis of it. But we recognize that it’s a real problem for certain respiratory virus vaccines. That killed the RSV program for decades. Now the Gates Foundation is taking it up again. But when we started developing coronavirus vaccines—and our colleagues—we noticed in laboratory animals that they started to show some of the same immune pathology that resembled what had happened 50 years earlier.”
Despite the safety risks, Gates and Heads of States fast track the potentially impossible and unsafe RNA vaccine
“I hope we can have a vaccine, and we’re going to fast-track it like you’ve never seen before.” These were the words of then US President Donald Trump in May 2020 showing a total disregard for the previous scientific work done in relation to coronavirus vaccines. This “fast track” approach meant never before seen shortcuts in vaccine development were permitted including the new usage DNA and mRNA vaccines. Fauci, who was a member of Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force said on April 30, 2020, “We’re gonna start ramping up production with the companies involved, and you do that at risk. In other words, you don’t wait until you get an answer before you start manufacturing. You at risk proactively start making it, assuming it’s gonna work.
Gates continued pushing the need for the vaccine within 18 months saying, “so there’s an approach called RNA vaccine that people like Moderna, CureVac, and others are using that in 2015 we’d identified that as very promising for pandemics and for other applications as well. And so, if everything goes perfectly with the RNA approach, we could actually beat the 18 months. We don’t want to create unrealistic expectations.”
In May 2020, PBS published a 5-minute video titled “Can Scientists Use RNA to Create a Coronavirus Vaccine?” In the video, they admit that “It’s a relatively new, unproven technology. And there’s still no example of an RNA vaccine that’s been deployed worldwide in the way that we need for the coronavirus…There is the possibility for unforeseen, adverse effects” and the RNA vaccines are “new territory.” Akiko Iwasaki a Professor in the Department of Immunobiology and a Professor in the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology at Yale University said in the video “[w]hether it would elicit protective immune response against this virus is just unknown.”
The fact that the vaccine has now been rushed and mass-produced and is being delivered (even forcibly) to the world at large before the proper tests and precautions were completed makes this RNA mass vaccination program perhaps the world’s most dangerous medical experiment to ever have occurred in history. What would have been crazy to expect of the world’s population a year ago is now being carried out globally.
Gates works to secure immunity for the big pharma mafia
Understanding that this global experiment may lead to unprecedented outcomes in the future Gates knew that immunity would be needed before the production of these vaccines began.
Gates said in his CNBC interview: “If we have, you know, one in 10,000 side effects, that’s, you know, way more— 700,000—you know, people who will suffer from that. So really understanding the safety at gigantic scale across all age ranges—you know, pregnant, male, female, undernourished, existing comorbidities—it’s very, very hard. And that actual decision of, “OK, let’s go and give this vaccine to the entire world,” ah, governments will have to be involved because there will be some risk and indemnification needed before that can be decided on.“
James Corbett notes that “In the US, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a declaration that retroactively provides “liability immunity for activities related to medical countermeasures against COVID-19,” including manufacturers, distributors and program planners of “any vaccine, used to treat, diagnose, cure, prevent, or mitigate COVID-19.” The declaration was issued on March 17th but retroactively covers any activity back to February 4th, 2020, the day before the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced an emergency $100 million to fund treatment efforts and to develop new vaccines for COVID-19.”
Seeing that Gates worked well to ensure that the big pharma mafia would not face legal repercussions should the vaccine cause adverse effects, it makes sense to examine Gates’s previous vaccination involvement and philanthropic track record in India.
Gates foundation violates medical norms in India
The dawn (2010) of the “decade of vaccines” began with the Gates Foundation funding an observational study of HPV vaccines in India. According to a government investigation, the Gates-funded project violated the human rights of the participants with “gross violations” of consent and failed to properly report adverse reactions that participants underwent as a result of the vaccines.
The Corbett report notes about the case that “after the deaths of seven girls involved in the trial were reported, a parliamentary investigation concluded that the Gates-funded Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), which ran the study, had been engaged in a scheme to help ensure “healthy markets” for GlaxoSmithKline and Merck, the manufacturers of the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines that had been so generously donated for use in the trial.” The government investigation said “Had PATH been successful in getting the HPV vaccine included in the universal immunization program of the concerned countries, this would have generated windfall profit for the manufacturer(s) by way of automatic sale, year after year, without any promotional or marketing expenses. It is well known that once introduced into the immunization program it becomes politically impossible to stop any vaccination.”
Chandra M. Gulhati, editor of the Monthly Index of Medical Specialities, an influential journal in India said about the HPV vaccine program in India that “[i]t is shocking to see how an American organization used surreptitious methods to establish itself in India.” Another credible Indian figure Samiran Nundy, a gastrointestinal expert at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in New Delhi and editor emeritus of the National Medical Journal of India said it was “an obvious case where Indians were being used as guinea pigs.”
As time passed, India’s health sector was seemingly becoming dominated by the Gates Foundation. In 2016 the Indian Express published an article in which the National Health Mission’s (NHM) lambasted conflicts of interests between the Gates Foundation and India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (NTAGI). The NTAGI is “the most powerful decision-making body which decides on vaccines that should become part of the government’s immunization program [in India].”
A member of the NHM said, “The NTAGI secretariat has been moved out of the ministry to the office of Public Health Foundation of India and the 32 staff members in that secretariat draw their salaries from the BMGF. There is a clear conflict of interest — on one hand, the BMGF funds the secretariat that is the highest decision-making body in vaccines and, on the other, it partners the pharma industry in GAVI. This is unacceptable.”
In 2017 the government of India “shut the gate on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on a critical national health mission, and possible conflict of interest issues arising from the foundation’s “ties” with pharmaceutical companies is one of the reasons.”
The Corbett Report has documented well the other malpractices of the Gates Foundation:
“There’s the Gates-founded and funded Meningitis Vaccine Project, which led to the creation and testing of MenAfriVac, a $0.50-per-dose immunization against meningococcal meningitis. The tests led to reports of between 40 and 500 children suffering seizures and convulsions and eventually becoming paralyzed.
There’s the 2017 confirmation that the Gates-supported oral polio vaccine was actually responsible for the majority of new polio cases and the 2018 follow up showing that 80% of polio cases are now vaccine-derived.
There’s the 2018 paper in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health concluding that over 490,000 people in India developed paralysis as a result of the oral polio vaccine between 2000 and 2017.”
Gates Foundations, a concerning monoploising reach
Ever since Gates began transitioning his public image from Microsoft founder and software wiz to empathetic philanthropist, concerns have been growing over his Rockafeller-like global dominance and increasing monopolistic power of the industry of global health.
In 2008 the New York Times published that “The chief of malaria [Dr. Arata Kochi] for the World Health Organization (WHO) has complained that the growing dominance of malaria research by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation risks stifling a diversity of views among scientists and wiping out the world health agency’s policy-making function…Many of the world’s leading malaria scientists are now “locked up in a ‘cartel’ with their own research funding being linked to those of others within the group,” Dr. Kochi wrote.”
What Kochi described in 2008 for malaria is what we are today experiencing globally in relation to Covid19. Anyone, including credible medical experts, who dares so much as speak one word against the vaccination program is put under harsh reprimand. It is a lamentable state. The Gates foundation has truly “stifled diversity of views among scientists” leaving many “locked up in a ‘cartel’ with their own research funding being those other within the group.”
May God Bless our Nation!
