Thanks to Vernon Coleman for his incredible wit.
Welcome to part two of `Just a Little Prick’, the unauthorised Bill Gates story. Obviously, the term `little prick’ refers to what happens when you have an injection and is naturally in no way meant in a pejorative way. Heaven forbid. If I were to be rude about Mr Gates his subsidised friends at The Guardian and the BBC would doubtless need to be revived with smelling salts.
In the first episode of `Just a Little Prick’, I dealt with a few of Mr Gates’s connections, aspirations and investments. But I made it clear that he and his wife seem to have one first love: vaccines.
Some people love cats, mountain climbing or horse racing. But Bill and Melinda Gates love vaccines. They yearn to inject everyone and to them vaccines appear to be the eighth wonder of the world. I wouldn’t be surprised if they spent their honeymoon watching vaccines being made or watching vaccinations being given to tiny African children. I bet they spend their evenings drooling over vials of vaccines. And at Christmas they probably give each other unusual vaccines they’ve found.
Unravelling the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and its links with the world of vaccines and vaccinations has taken weeks and given me a headache. Thank heavens there isn’t yet a vaccine for headaches.
Among the many partnerships and so on which the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has developed in recent years there is one with an organisation called GAVI.
Now GAVI is rather odd in that it is a partnership between the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Health Organisation (which itself is very well financed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) and the World Bank and a variety of other bodies.
So, for example, GAVI also has close and loving partnerships with what I think are some of the world’s biggest, dirtiest, most disreputable multinational drug companies including GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the organisation `Doctors Without Borders’ has I think criticised GAVI, alleging that large multinational drug companies working with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation put high mark ups on their prices and that GAVI spends oodles of money subsidising large companies. One of GAVI’s stated aims seems to be to create a healthy market for vaccines.
You will probably not be surprised to hear that Gates has close links with a number of multinational drug companies but you may, or may not, be surprised to hear that he doesn’t seem to me to be terribly fussy about the company he keeps. On the other hand it would I suppose be quite difficult to find a drug company partner that didn’t have a reputation that would make Al Capone blush with shame. If you get into bed with a drug company you have to be prepared to wake up in the morning with a bit of scratching and itching and so on.
In a previous video entitled `Would You Trust These People with Your Life? I detailed some of the bad things that GSK has done over recent years and I pointed out that if it were a human being GSK would be described as a recidivist. It would probably have regular appointments with a parole officer.
GSK is one of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies and in my view if it made teaspoons you’d need to be a special sort of person to buy a teaspoon from them.
In 2014, for example, GSK was fined $490 million dollars by China after a Chinese court found it guilty of bribery. The court gave GSK’s former head of Chinese operations a suspended prison sentence and they gave suspended prison sentences to other executives too.
Sadly, that misadventure in China wasn’t GSK’s only little `Oh dear, whoops, how did that happen?’ mistake. Here are some others.
In 2009 in Canada, a five-year-old girl died five days after an H1N1 flu shot and her parents sued GSK for $4.2 million. The parents’ lawyer alleged that the drug was brought out quickly and without proper testing as the federal government exerted intense pressure on Canadians to get immunised.
In 2010 GSK paid out $1.14 billion because of claims over a drug called Paxil. And they settled lawsuits over a drug called Avandia for $500 million.
In 2011 GSK paid $250 million to settle 5,500 death and injury claims and set aside $6.4 billion for future lawsuits and settlements in respect of the drug Avandia.
And then there are the accusations of fraud, misbranding and failure to report safety data.
In 2012, GSK pleaded guilty to federal criminal offences including misbranding of two antidepressants and failure to report safety data about a drug for diabetes to the FDA in America. The company admitted to illegally promoting Paxil for the treatment of depression in children and agreed to pay a fine of $3 billion. GSK also reached a related civil settlement with the US Justice Department. The $3 billion fine also included the civil penalties for improper marketing of half a dozen other drugs.
There’s more interesting stuff about GSK on my video entitled `Would you trust these people with your life?’
Oh, and there are a couple of other things you should know about GSK.
First, GSK is one of the top earning vaccine companies in the world. And in 2010 there were reports of narcolepsy occurring in Sweden and Finland among children who had the H1N1 swine flu vaccine. It is reported that not all the safety problems were made public.
In Ireland, the Irish Government kept inviting people to get vaccinated even when it was clear that the pandemic was on the wane and it was nowhere near the catastrophe portrayed by influenza researchers, governments, industry and the media. One member of the Irish parliament, told the Irish Prime Minister. `The Health Service Executive decided to purchase Pandemrix and continued to distribute it even after they knew it was dangerous and untested.’
It is perhaps worth noting that Professor Neil Ferguson, the Eddie the Eagle of mathematical modelling though perhaps without the innocent and patriotic charm, had predicted that the swine flu could lead to 65,000 deaths in the UK alone. In the end, the swine flu killed 457 people and had a death rate of just 0.026 per cent of those infected. Just another of Ferguson’s cock ups. Cock ups seem to be a speciality of his in more ways than one.
Second, Sir Patrick Vallance, is the Chief Scientific Adviser in the United Kingdom and, I suspect, a key figure in dealing with the coronavirus in the UK and the plans for a vaccine. Vallance worked for GSK between 2006 and 2018. By the time he left GSK he was a member of the board and the corporate executive team. Fines and so on which I have listed took place while Vallance was working as a senior figure at GSK.
As I say, you can find out lots more exciting stuff about GSK and about Astra Zeneca in my video entitled `Would You Trust These People With Your Life?’ If the video disappears, you can, as always find the transcript on my website www.vernoncoleman.com
Oh, and there’s one more thing I nearly forgot to mention. Glaxo Smith Kline was fined £37.6 million for cheating the National Health Service. I wonder what Vallance thought about that.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also has a relationship with Pfizer and to be honest with you, Pfizer’s record isn’t anything you would want to boast about. If you worked there you’d keep quiet about it I think and say you worked for the tax people or robbed banks for living.
So, for example, in the UK, Pfizer was fined £84.2 million for overcharging the NHS by 2,600% and in the US Pfizer was hit with a $2.3 billion fine for mis-promoting medicines and paying kickbacks to doctors.
You might think that a foundation wanting to have a clean reputation might avoid relationships with companies like those.
But Bill Gates doesn’t seem to mind about all these little peccadillos; the cheating and the deceiving and so on. And in a way why should he? He has a team of PR people willing and able to make sure that his halo is constantly being repaired and polished and I doubt if any of his many press and broadcasting partners will want to damage their financially advantageous relationship by mentioning anything which might caught embarrassment. After all, we must not forget that the Foundation he shares with Melinda, Mrs Gates, seems to me to have investments with bought much of the world’s media; doling out fairly huge chunks of cash to no doubt grateful partners. Did I remember to mention that those two sanctimonious organisations the BBC and The Guardian are partners with the Gates Foundation?
It cannot be that Gates isn’t aware of the problems associated with vaccination because his own foundation has allegedly had its own little peccadilloes to think about. I’ve described some of those controversies in other videos.
In India there was trouble over a Gates funded vaccine programme. A government investigation claimed the programme, an observational study, violated the human rights of those being injected and failed to report properly adverse effects. That, as we have seen, is not entirely unusual drug company practice. A parliamentary investigation concluded that the Gates funded Program for Appropriate Technology in Health had been engaged in a scheme to help ensure `healthy markets’ for GlaxoSmithKline and Merck (another drug company).
An eminent Indian editor said `it is shocking to see how an American organisation used surreptitious methods to establish itself in India. Another complaint was that Indians were used as guinea pigs.
In Africa a meningitis vaccine project, funded by Gates, led to reports of up to 500 children allegedly suffering seizures and convulsions and becoming paralysed.
And back in India it was reported that over 490,000 people developed paralysis as a result of the polio vaccine that was given. Remarkably and horrifyingly it was claimed that 80% of polio cases were derived from the vaccine.
There are complaints that the Gates Foundation has taken over public health for the benefit of big drug companies. The links between the Gates Foundation and other organisations and the pharmaceutical giants seem never ending.
Gates has long argued that the world is overpopulated and to help further this end the Gates Foundation is said to have funded Marie Stopes, an organisation, which performs over three million abortions a year and has also worked with a charity called Gynuity which is experimenting with a second trimester abortion trial in Africa.
But it is vaccines which seem to interest Gates most and despite all the known hazaards the enthusiastic Gates remains gungho about vaccines. He must know that there are very real dangers with vaccines but curiously it doesn’t seem to worry him. I wonder if he really has any idea what he is talking about when he discusses vaccines. There seems to me to be little awareness of the risk-benefit ratio.
For example, I have seen an interview in which he agrees that if 7 billion people are vaccinated against the coronavirus there could be 700,000 people damaged by the virus. There could of course be many deaths but I don’t think Mr Gates likes to talk about that scenario.
He says that there could be 700,000 people with side effects and he dismisses this as though he is talking a bit of soreness or a slight rash.
Not necessarily so, Mr Gates. I’ve been studying and writing about vaccines for 50 years and the side effects from vaccination are often life changing. It is perfectly possible, for example, that there could be 700,000 people with severe brain damage after the first tranche of the vaccination programme has been completed.
I wonder if Gates has any idea what a brain damaged person looks like; how devastating it is not just for them but for their relatives.
And of course the Covid 19 disease, the subject of the Gates determination for a global vaccine, has, as I keep reminding everyone, killed far, far less than the ordinary flu can kill in the same sort of time period.
What is all this about? Who is doing what for why and who is profiting and how?
Well, the drug companies are making money. Loads of it. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is getting more control over global healthcare. And Bill and Melinda are becoming ever more powerful and ever more able to pursue whatever other goals and agendas may be dear to them. And wherever they go they are treated like royalty. And Bill Gates himself is said to be richer now than he was a decade ago. Indeed, during the decade of vaccines promoted by Gates, his personal worth is said to have doubled to over $100 billion.
The bottom line, however, is that I can’t help suspecting that if Gates hadn’t made so much money and hadn’t doled so much of it out to buy influence, everyone would laugh at him, ignore him or dismiss him as a nutter. Is there a hidden agenda? How much does Gates’ fear about overpopulation influence what he does? And how much does that family interest in eugenics affect the aims of the Gates Foundation. Many rich people do wonderful things with their money – but they do it without trying to change the world and without wanting to alter the way people live.
Although Gates is a university drop out with no more medical degrees than your fridge he is regarded as a saviour and his views on vaccination are treated as though they had been carved in stone and handed down from on high. What Gates wants is what we get. It seems to me that Gates is ignorant, deluded, arrogant and enormously dangerous. In my view, he is doing, and will do, infinitely more harm than good.
And the other half of this strange joke is that whereas although I am medically trained and have studied vaccines and vaccination for half a century my questioning, cautious view, asking only for more medical or scientific evidence to be produced in support of the claims which are made, is regarded as unacceptable and I am the one libelled, demonised and dismissed as a nutter, targeted by trolls, demonised as too questioning and regarded as too dangerous to be allowed onto Facebook lest I terrify the `community’ with too many truths.
Putting aside my scepticism and doubts about vaccination (and my conviction, after much research, that vaccines are neither as safe nor as effective, as we are assured by their ignorant supporters) I am deeply concerned about the safety of any coronavirus vaccine. I feel that anyone who accepts a coronavirus vaccine as proposed or supported by Bill Gates or his Foundation should perhaps be placed in protective care for their own protection. I pray that no parents will allow their children to be given a vaccine that has been hastily produced. Those who believe in vaccination should demand that any vaccines are thoroughly tested for safety and efficacy – and that all test results be made public.
Still, there is a bright side to all this.
When the inevitable biopic of Gates’ life is made I hope they will use my title `Just a little prick’. It seems so suitable for a man who appears to be dedicated to vaccinating the world.
