[Editor’s note: The following article is both a tongue-in-cheek insight into the mind of Bill Gates and a serious review of his recent statements on the subjects of climate change and SARS CoV2].
Just imagine you’re Bill Gates for a moment. The 644-million-dollar hydrogen-powered superyacht. The $70,000,000 private jet. The five massive mansions. The ability to write a billion-dollar check. The cashmere V-neck sweater collection that inspires hushed awe. When you stand alone in front of the bathroom mirror on a weekday morning, you feel absolutely fantastic about saying aloud: “I’m a really good person. I do really good things.” Sure, the echo takes 11 minutes to get back to you, but it’s worth the wait.
Now imagine having the morning news read to you by your manservant Wembley. (OK – maybe you read it yourself some days to embrace your inner-commoner), but you notice something. An absence. A void. Something left out. It nags at you. What can it be?
Then – like the strike of a lightning bolt – you realize precisely what’s missing. There are no stories about you. And worse than that – the last one in which you were mentioned was about how that electric car stoner kid Musk surpassed you and Dr. Evil of Amazon was the world’s richest person. In the words of your preferred president: “C’mon man!”
You lose your appetite. You push the plate of poached quail eggs with caviar away from you. You don’t even like them anyway – you just eat them because you can. The same reason you have your news read to you most days.
Then you snap out of it. You’re Bill Gates, after all – damn skippy! (Should you have gone with William?) Software developer, anti-trust infringing monopolist, and super charitable giver away-er of money. You even have the Superman T-shirt with Philanthropist written where the “S” should be to prove it. It’s been too long. It’s time to see your name in print again. I mean, it’s almost a week now!
Your name in the title is non-negotiable. Otherwise, why are you paying so much money to mainstream media? But you wonder what you could do to really get them talking. More opinions about science – even though you’re not a scientist and have no medical training whatsoever and never even finished college? Check. But how about a twofer? You make a COVID statement and a climate statement almost simultaneously? Yes! Boom! Nailed it with a nail gun. And now you get to daydream about what that will sound like…
Climate Scientist and Medical Expert
In an interview with MIT Technology Review, Gates urged first-world countries to switch to laboratory meat as a weapon to combat climate change. The multi-billionaire stated:
“I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the people or use regulation to totally shift the demand.”
This is the same kind of extra-box thinking that fired the billionaire’s imagination back in the ’80s and resulted in the world’s second-best computer. It stops short of The Great Reveal (repurposing climate-warming cow farts for hot air balloon travel in order to replace cars), but that’s a genius bombshell for another day. Baby steps.
Gates has an unfortunate way of making startlingly sinister-sounding statements when speaking extemporaneously. Notice how “you can sort of change the people” with synthetic beef bodes ill in the same way that he got himself in an internet kerfuffle back in 2010 during a TED Talk when lecturing about global overpopulation. He stated: “Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines… we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15 percent.”
Wait – what?
I’ll Say Whatever I Want!
Gates’ P.R. machine subsequently clarified that he meant third-world families would choose to have fewer children if they’re not dying from vaccine-preventable diseases – but it established a pattern. Gates will now wave his arms and talk at length about any subject he chooses, whether he ends up saying something inadvertently disturbing or not. He can always count on his army of paid fixers to make it right. Clean up on aisle G.
They might have to apply their brushfire kit to the statement “you can get used to the taste,” implying that everyone else will – but not him. Gates’ brave new world likely includes quality cuts of meat set aside for the ultra-rich – and as for the rest of us? Let ‘em eat synthetic beef. And honestly – is a man with a jet, a yacht, and five mansions with a total square footage of around 300,000 really worried about reducing climate change impacts? Is this an example of drastic measures for thee but not for me?
Part Two of Gates’ double feature this week was his statement that in order to combat SARS CoV2 variants, we might have to be willing to take a third dose of the COVID vaccine. In an interview with CBS Evening News, he said:
“The discussion now is, do we just need to get a super high coverage of the current vaccine, or do we need a third dose that’s just the same, or do we need a modified vaccine? All five of the companies that have U.S. vaccines are looking at making that modification and adding that in so that people who’ve already had two shots might need to get a third shot.”
How Many Vaccinations is Not Enough?
This super-sizing of COVID measures is part of a comprehensive coronavirus strategy creep visited upon us by our “expert class.” After initially telling us that we shouldn’t be wearing masks, Anthony Fauci then insisted we need masks – and now recommends two masks. Not to be outdone, Gates asserts that two doses of an experimental vaccine still in phase-three trials that do not have FDA approval are not enough and that three may finally pull the COVID sword from the stone.
Flying blind – or at least with a pair of corrective lenses – Gates is a reckless pilot. Similar to his ideological nemesis Donald Trump’s speech, which could rarely be corralled, Gates says anything that pops into his head. He knows the sycophantic media is in thrall to his wealth and I.Q. and will never challenge him on anything or hold him to account.
In the same interview, Gates said that we should absolutely “get them out as fast as we can while we study this idea of tuning the vaccine.” It was an admission that the vaccine is experimental, with no long-term safety studies, and will need to be “tuned” – after already having been administered to 100 million Americans.
Gates went on to propagate a falsehood he knows is untrue and over which the mainstream media incessantly elides. In dissent from Johnson & Johnson’s CEO, who recently stated yearly COVID shots may become de rigeur, the software developer countered that additional injections might be necessary in the future. “Probably not yearly,” he asserted, but as long as it’s out there, we want as many Americans as possible not to be spreading it to each other.”
The PC pioneer understands there is exactly zero scientific evidence any of the COVID vaccines will reduce transmission of the virus, so the insistence they will help us not spread it to each other is simply a tissue of lies until science proves otherwise. The public reasonably expects vaccines to help stop the spread of a virus or disease. But that is not the case here – which makes these injections closer to a treatment that reduces mild symptoms of the coronavirus than a vaccine to eradicate its proliferation.
Why we hang on every word uttered by a man whose most notable achievement is to have amassed unfathomable wealth is a question for a planet-sized therapist’s couch. But as long as the “legacy” media gives him a platform – one he pays for in part by his largesse to them – he will continue to be our globalist sage on all matters COVID and climate, as well as everything else on which he cares to opine.
