Bill Gates’ Hand in COVID-19, Part 5

Bill Gates generally is portrayed as a kindly philanthropist who generously funds projects to improve health and fight poverty. As shown in this report by James Corbett, however, the image and the reality are far apart. The reality is that Gates, throughout his entire career, has been obsessed with the idea that the human population needs to be drastically reduced and that any means to this end is acceptable, including the creation of vaccines to sterilize people but offered to them as a defense against disease.

Eventually, Gates saw the potential for using vaccines for yet another hidden purpose, and that is for injecting micro chips and data tattoos into the skin that, in addition to pushing pharmaceutical concoctions into the blood stream, also embed digital data that can be read by scanners to identify every person on the planet. They also will carry a record of vaccine acceptance, medical history, psychological profiles, and social-behavior scores…

There is reason to be concerned about what is developing around this fake pandemic. We have seen the CDC claim that the actual mortality rate is .28%. Sorry but that does not mandate a pandemic with those numbers. H1N1 had a mortality rate of 39.5% and we did nothing. This is a test to see how far people can be pushed and Gates, Fauci, and WHO are the instigators.

[Comment: Both of Gates’ parents were eugenicists. The apple does not fall far from the tree.]

The Catholic archbishop of Washington, DC, Wilton Gregory, has doubled down on an earlier statement slamming the Saint John Paul II Shrine for allowing President Trump and the First Lady to visit the sanctuary before issuing an Executive Order on International Religious Liberty.

In that statement, which Catholic intellectual Robert Royal, editor of The Catholic Thing, described as “an absolute disaster,” Archbishop Gregory said that the Shrine’s decision to allow the visit to take place was “reprehensible” because it had let itself be “egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles.”

Don’t Relinquish Civil Liberties for False Sense of Security

Barbara Loe Fisher is the co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), which is the oldest and largest consumer-led nonprofit organization in the U.S. providing accurate and objective information to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and help people make informed health choices.

As noted by Fisher, the rapid movement by governments and the pharmaceutical industry toward mandatory vaccinations against COVID-19 and the proposed tracking and tracing of all individuals under the guise of public health is a culmination of everything we have been talking about for decades.

“Back in 1993, I started to predict that the day would come when Americans would not be able to participate in society without showing proof they’ve been vaccinated with whatever the government says they have to be vaccinated with,” Fisher says.

Utilitarianism Demands Sacrifice ‘for the Greater Good’

Legal proponents such as Alan Dershowitz, who has represented the notorious sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and other prominent individuals, is now using a 1905 Supreme Court ruling to justify government officials literally detaining Americans and forcibly vaccinating them if they do not agree to get vaccinated voluntarily. Fisher explains:

Norway Scientist Claims Report Proves Coronavirus Was Lab-Made

Norwegian scientist Birger Sørensen has claimed the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is not natural in origin. The claims by the co-author of the British-Norwegian study—published in the Quarterly Review of Biophysics—are supported by the former head of Britain’s MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove.

The study from Sørensen and British professor Angus Dalgleish show that the coronavirus’s spike protein contains sequences that appear to be artificially inserted.

They also highlight the lack of mutation since its discovery, which suggests it was already fully adapted to humans. The study goes on to explain the rationale for the development of Biovacc-19, a candidate vaccine for COVID-19 that is now in advanced pre-clinical development.

Sørensen told NRK that the virus has properties that differ greatly from SARS, and which have never been detected in nature. He explained that China and the United States have collaborated for many years on coronavirus research.

Initially the vote concerning amendments to the constitution was meant to be held on April 22 but was postponed due to the pandemic.

During the debate in the Duma over the Putin administration’s proposals, the number of changes almost doubled, which means that if they are introduced into the document, the length of the constitution will increase by half. The amendments will alter 46 articles.

The most important of these changes is removing presidential term limits, paving the way for the current president to hold the position for life. The Russian nation has also been decreed as “state-creating”.

The Calcutta Quran Petition — A Millennium-Long Clash of Civilisations

The “Calcutta Quran Petition” is a case study in the form of a book, written by Shri. Sita Ram Goel, based on the writ petition, (Chandmal Chopra vs State Of West Bengal And Ors, 1988 CriLJ, 739), filed in the Calcutta High Court by Mr. Chandmal Chopra, seeking ban on the religious textbook of Muslims, the Quran. In the concerned writ petition it was contended by the petitioner that the teachings of Quran incite violence, disturb public tranquillity, promote feelings of enmity, hatred and ill-will between different religious communities and insult the religion or religious beliefs of other communities in India.

The concerned petition carried detailed description of Quranic verses and their interpretations to back up the aforesaid claim. In the said petition it was prayed by the petitioner that publication of the Quran (both in arabic or its translations) must be made punishable under Section 153A and Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code and as such came within the mischief of Section 95 of the Cr. P. C., 1973. As a public authority the respondent (State of West Bengal) had a duty to invoke the said Section 95 of the Cr. P. C. and to forfeit all copies of the Koran and seize the same wherever found in India.

The most vital factor that a wise strategist would keep in mind while being at war is: gaining knowledge about the enemy. What can be worse than being a nation under a siege extending over a millennium, without the slightest idea about the nature of the adversary it was dealing with? Yet this has been a singular failing of Hindus, locked in a tussle of life and death with invading ideologies sworn to obliterate its existence. The Hindus never made any attempt to study and know the aggressive Abrahamic beast assailing their nation, the ways in which it acts. And therefore our struggle has been one of continuous diminution, with no perspective gained and no lessons learnt from our innumerable losses. Time has come to break that cycle.

J.K. Rowling is a Terf! Rainbow Fascism Attacks the Harry Potter Author for Saying Biological Sex is Real and Only Women Can Menstruate

There is a saying that has become popular recently: The Left eats its own. Thus, it happened that even after transforming Albus Dumbledore from her Harry Potter novels into a homosexual, changing the race of Hermione Granger from White to Black, the Left is still not happy with J.K. Rowling. In the most recent instance, the world renowned author attracted the wrath of the LGBT Community for saying that biological sex is real.

It all began when J.K. Rowling expressed her unhappiness over the fact that the headline of an opinion piece published on a media portal addressed women as ‘people who menstruate’ instead of the actual word. This is due to the fact that in the world of the Left, it is believed that gender is a social construct and a menstruating women can actually be a man if she calls herself one and society must address her as a man. If one accepts such a premise, then it cannot be said that it is only women who menstruate.

Police Closing Churches — Communism Wins?

While everyone slept, the Communist Party slipped in and took control of America. The action was and is subtle at the moment, but this is now a reality, something I’ve warned readers about for years. How this was accomplished was somewhat ingenious.

Enter Billionaire Bill Gates who thinks he is the leader of the world due to his computer success. Gates believes that the population of the world must be drastically reduced by 350.000 thousand people a day. The use of the word euthanized creeps in.

Gates was close to Dr. Anthony Fauci who also has illusions of world fame. Gates gave Dr. Fauci $1.3 million dollars to take to the Wuhan, China Lab for the purpose of creating a deadly virus that would take down the world. The Chinese not only created the virus but also “accidently”released it in order to put the world under their control. It is interesting to note that George Soros is an investor in that Chinese lab.

  1. Not exactly.
    The new version of the constitution does not say a word about the Russians. It says so: “The state language is the language of the state-forming people”
    Such is the Orwellian newspeak.

    Everyone understands what a circus it is. The banners “Responsible attitude to animals” are hanging all over the country – in the new constitution.
    But not a word is said who owns natural resources.

    Putin wants to climb the throne on this kitten.

    Despicable! Our Leftists are inciting the mob more! Even more disturbing for me are the brainwashed responses of many Britons on social media.

    Douglas Murray has weighed in on what’s been happening.

    I’ll repost this from yesterday, the Chief of Police in Bristol tells why he allowed the statue to be torn down.

    Ah, it was for “tactical reasons” and “context”. This is how enrichment proliferates unchallenged like this, people don’t understand the sheer depth of the human ability to explain away any mad thing.

    Of course in his case it turns out he was an outright sympathizer.

    I dunno James, sounds preferable at the moment.

  3. “decolonizing your bookshelf”

    There was a strange book policy in the USSR. We did not know about many books, but at the same time a lot of classics were published. Since there was nothing to watch on TV, except for “Vesti from the Fields” and dull Soviet films on a production topic, that’s why they read a lot. Good books were impossible to buy, but they could be borrowed in the library.

    Some foreign authors were especially fond of and popularized. For example, trash like Georges Amadou.
    I remember trying to read it as a teenager, but I was just sick of these blacks, mulattos and their silly stories on Brazilian beaches. It was not interesting.

    In the Soviet Union, a lot of money was still spent on writers from national minorities. Nobody read them and their books were gathering dust on store shelves. They say that these books were not written at all by them, but by Soviet Jews who promoted a multinational narrative.

    Interesting books were sold with a “load.” I remember such a story from childhood. My mother, buying the adventure book of Dumas, was supposed to buy a luxurious with gold embossing folio of “Karachai folk songs”. One page of the songs was in Karachay, the second in Russian. The songs were some kind of tribal squalor.
    And then friends came to parents, they drank, the wife of a friend of our family tapped the drum with their hand and they screamed at the table these silly songs “I sew to the cloak of ribbon” and the refrain o-rida-rida-o-rida. And everyone laughed.

  4. I remember the collapse of the USSR, everything was much quieter than it is now in the USA. Riots were only on the national outskirts. Therefore, the collapse occurred relatively bloodless. Russia just dropped that ballast. BUT! Now they have moved to our cities.

  5. It’s looking like these minions are demanding separation of some kind. They may very well create a nationalist backlash that will give them just that. Listening to some of these lepers squeaking about their ‘black brothers and sisters’ sounds a bit racist.

  6. Akhmat Kadyrov Foundation promises to pay ransom for 207 brides
    The Chechen authorities have promised to allocate more than 10 million roubles in total to bridegrooms who are short of money to pay a traditional ransom for a bride.

    All regions of Chechnya have already compiled lists of bridegrooms who are short of money to pay a ransom for a bride, and each of 207 men in need will get 50,000 roubles, the Spiritual Administration of Muslims (SAM) of Chechnya has reported on its Instagram page today.

    https://www.eng.kavkaz-uzel.eu/articles/51129/

    Kadyrov has no other money than jizya received from the Russian budget.
