Billionaire and the single biggest private donor to WHO, Bill Gates, whose yearly contribution rivals that of the biggest donor, the US government, has said that he twice advised President Donald Trump, while he was in office, not to form a commission to investigate the ill-effects of vaccines. US government policy in what are deemed to be health emergencies are largely justified and guided by what WHO says, the World Health Organization.
Gates described to MSNBC in May 2018:
“And then the second time I saw him was the March after that. So March 2017 in the White House, in both of those two meetings, he asked me if vaccines weren’t a bad thing, because he was considering a commission to look into the ill effects of vaccines. And somebody, his name is Robert Kennedy Jr. was advising him that vaccines were causing bad things. And I said, no, that’s a dead end. That would be a bad thing, don’t do that,” Gates said.
Bill Gates is also the funder for the 2020 Imperial College study by Professor Neil Ferguson which argued that unprecedented, highly controversial “lockdowns” and “social distancing” were necessary to slow the spread of COVID worldwide, until COVID vaccines were broadly available and injected into the vast majority of the world’s population.
Gates said in 2020 with respect to the COVID vaccines:
“normalcy only returns when we’ve largely vaccinated the entire global population.”
Gates also said in the same interview that “you don’t have a choice.”

A number of well-known pathologists have said they have found direct causal links between many recent sudden, unexpected deaths reported around the world, especially in younger adults, and the COVID vaccines manufactured by Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J.
In 2020 the progressive magazine The Nation wrote in “While the Poor Get Sick, Bill Gates Just Gets Richer” that Gates has:
“…dozens of investments…in companies working on Covid vaccines, therapeutics, diagnostics or manufacturing, according to The Nation’s analysis of the foundation’s most recent tax return, web site, and various SEC filings…These investments, amounting to more than $250 million, show that the world’s most visible charity, and one of the world’s most influential voices in the pandemic response, is in a position to potentially reap considerable financial gains from the Covid-19 pandemic.”
In December of 2021, a number of doctors and scientists, including a former Chief Science Officer for Pfizer, filed a Crimes Against Humanity criminal complaint, at the International Criminal Court in the Hague (ICC,) naming Gates, Boris Johnson, Klaus Schwab, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, Anthony Fauci, World Health Organization chairman Tedros Adanhom Ghebreyesus, Dr. Peter Daszack, and the World Economic Forum, for Crimes Against Humanity. [ICC Complaint, Yeadon et al vs. Johnson et al.]
Combined with the donation from the Gates-run, vaccine advocacy organization The Gavi Alliance, the Gates donation has sometimes outstripped that of the United States.

Many key leaders around the world who have played key roles in implementing the response to COVID are closely affiliated with the WEF, through its “Young Global Leaders” program, such as Justin Trudeau, California Governor Gavin Newsom, Bill Gates, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Another of many Gates-funded studies, the WHO Solidarity Trial, concluded that the promising malaria medicine hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) did no good against COVID or had serious side effects. But a group of Indian doctors objected when they saw that the patients in the trial were being given mega-doses of HCQ, ensuring flawed results.

Autopsies Show Direct Causal Link Between Unexpected Deaths and COVID Vaccines
Internationally recognized pathology professors in multiple countries have concluded that there is a direct link between the COVID vaccines and many sudden, unexpected deaths, especially in younger age people not near the end-of-life years.
Two of these pathologists are Dr. Arne Burkhardt and Dr. Walter Lang.
Dr. Arne Burkhardt has taught at the Universities of Hamburg, Berne and Tübingen. He has published more than 150 scientific articles in German and international scientific journals, and has audited and certified institutes of pathology in Germany.
Prof. Dr. Walter Lang was a pathologist at the Hannover Medical School from 1968-1985. Afterwards, for 25 years, Lang directed a private institute for pathology, which he founded, specializing in transplant pathology, extragynecological cytology, thyroid tumors, and lung/pleural pathology.
Dr. Arne Burkhardt
Dr. Walter Lang
In a German pathology conference series which began in September of 2021, Doctors Burkhardt and Lang reported never-before-seen immune system attacks on the body’s own organs.
Webpage for the 2nd Pathology Conference on Dec. 4, 2021 in Berlin, Germany.
The Epoch Times reported on September 22, 2021 (click on Google translate from German to English):
“The doctors suspect autoimmune phenomena, reduction in immune capacity, acceleration of cancer growth, vascular damage “endothelitis”, vasculitis, perivasculitis and erythrocyte “clumping” as further corona vaccination side effects with potential fatal consequences…Burkhardt described it as “extreme” that among the ten deceased examined, three very rare autoimmune diseases were found, namely Sjögren’s syndrome, leukoclasic vasculitis of the skin and Hashimoto’s disease.”
The Epoch Times wrote:
“[Burkhardt] can only think of one term for what [he] has been investigating with his colleagues over the past few months – “lymphocyte amok”, potentially in all tissues and all organs.“
In it’s official statement on the autopsy findings, Doctors for COVID Ethics, a co-sponsor of the symposium, writes:
“A natural infection with SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) will in most individuals remain localized to the respiratory tract. In contrast, the vaccines cause cells deep inside our body to express the viral spike protein, which they were never meant to do by nature. Any cell which expresses this foreign antigen will come under attack by the immune system, which will involve both IgG antibodies and cytotoxic T-lymphocytes. This may occur in any organ. We are seeing now that the heart is affected in many young people, leading to myocarditis or even sudden cardiac arrest and death….
Above: Microscope image of lymphocyte attack of brain blood vessel presented by Dr. Arne Burkhardt
Doctors for COVID Ethics concludes:
We herewith present scientific evidence that calls for an immediate stop of the use of gene-based COVID-19 vaccines. We first lay out why the agents cannot protect against viral infection. While no positive effects can be expected, we show that the vaccines can trigger self-destructive processes that lead to debilitating illness and death….
Even early in the vaccine roll-out, scientists like Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Professor emeritus of the University of Mainz, winner of the Aronson Prize for achievements in microbiology and immunology, worried about what the spike proteins would do once turned loose in the body. In the below video Dr. Bhakdi gives a clear and lucid explanation of the mechanism by which the spike proteins might cause mischief.

Compilation on Pathology Conference Series: When Correlation DOES Equal Causation: Autopsies Show COVID Vaccines Are Killing People
CDC Fudges Data in Order to Make COVID Vaccines Appear Safer
Apparently seeking to blunt autopsy studies by pathologists, a study by scientists affiliated with Kaiser Permanente, in contrast, concludes that vaccinated persons have lower, non-COVID, all-cause death rates than unvaccinated persons.
The Kaiser study would seem to throw cold water on the idea that the vaccines are killing people. But the study employs a critical deception.
Rather than count from the time that the shot begins to have effects on the body, which would be immediately, a person who is negatively impacted is not counted as being vaccinated until 14 days after the second shot in the case of Pfizer and Moderna, or 14 days after the J&J single shot. This is particularly deceptive because 80% of VAERS reports of unexpected deaths post-vaccine occur within 14 days after taking a shot.
A CDC advisory on breakthrough COVID infections, which means infections in vaccinated people, shows that a person is considered “vaccinated” only after 14 days have passed since the final shot:
“a vaccine breakthrough infection is defined as the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA or antigen in a respiratory specimen collected from a person ≥14 days after receipt of all recommended doses of an FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine.”
Children’s Health Defense reports that one-third of unexpected deaths after vaccination takes place within 48 hours, after receiving a shot.
This means that anyone who took a COVID vaccine shot, walks out, and falls over dead in the parking lot of a heart attack or stroke is counted as a death of an “unvaccinated” person.
COVID Vaccine Injury Claims in Compensation Court Now Many Times More Than For All Other Vaccines Combined, Animal Safety Trials All but Skipped
COVID vaccine injury claims have recently skyrocketed to 5400. The CDC’s VAERS Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System now has seven times the reported deaths possibly caused by the COVID vaccines as all other vaccines combined since the reporting system was created 30 years ago.
The COVID vaccines are already unprecedented for bypassing the normal one to three years of animal safety trials in vaccine and drug development which are typical before a new drug ever enters a human, in human clinical trials. The average time for bringing any new drug or vaccine to general use is 10 years.

Unreported by Media, Younger People are Dying at Unprecedented Rates
Recent insurance company data for the US and other countries shows an unprecedented rise in all-cause mortality since the roll-out of the COVID vaccines, as much as 40%. This would put the US on track for 1.4 million more deaths of all causes than usual by the end of 2022. Normally about 3 million people die in the US in recent years.

Real Not Rare
German Pathologists’ Findings Square with Other Pathologists
Dr. Burkhardt’s and Dr. Lang’s findings are similar to those of other pathologists.
The UK Daily Expose writes:
“The director of the Pathological Institute of the University of Heidelberg, Peter Schirmacher, has carried out over forty autopsies on people who died within two weeks of receiving a Covid-19 vaccine and has expressed alarm over his findings.
Schirmacher stated that 30 to 40 per cent of people he examined died from the vaccine and that in his opinion, the frequency of fatal consequences of vaccinations is “underestimated.”…He has warned that the high number of unreported cases of vaccination deaths is partially due to the fact that “pathologists do not notice anything about most of the patients who die after and possible from a vaccination.”
German News Site Augsburg General (right-click to use Google translate from German to English):
“The doctor now wants to get to the bottom of the rare, serious side effects of vaccination – such as cerebral vein thrombosis or autoimmune diseases. The problem from his point of view: Vaccinated people usually do not die under clinical observation. “The doctor examining the corpse does not establish any context with the vaccination and certifies a natural death and the patient is buried,” reports Schirmacher. “Or he certifies an unclear manner of death and the public prosecutor sees no third-party fault and releases the body for burial.””
The UK Daily Expose:
“Despite the criticism, Schirmacher did receive support from his own ranks, and the Federal Association of German Pathologists stated that more autopsies of vaccinated people who died within a certain time frame after vaccination should be performed….The Federal Association of Pathologists already requested this in March in a letter to Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU), but it went unanswered.”
Another pathologist, Dr. Ryan Cole, MD, who holds medical degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine and the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine, has made similar warnings about the vaccines. Dr. Cole shows his own lab evidence that Pfizer and Moderna mRNA spike protein injections may be quietly killing injection recipients through “micro-clots,” inflammation, and immune suppression.
Below: Dr. Ryan Cole, pathologist, on the dangers of mRNA injection in August 2021 (view at Bitchute)
Doctors for COVID Ethics last April sent letters to all members of European parliaments who were mandating the experimental vaccinations that they are committing Crimes Against Humanity. The average time for bringing any new drug or vaccine to general use is 10 years, including typically one to three years of animal safety trials before human testing.
In June of 2021, enlisting the aid of certain doctors and scientists, the media launched into attack mode immediately after a Canadian immunologist warned that the Pfizer/Moderna injections might pose a danger to the body’s organs, in particular the heart, brain, and through blood clotting issues.
The immunologist, Professor Dr. Byram Bridle, said in an interview in May 2021 that data led him to conclude that “We made a big mistake” by rushing the drugs into mass circulation. Dr. Bridle had just received a $230,000 grant for coronavirus vaccine development.
Soon, the Internet was rife with “debunks” of Dr. Bridle’s concerns. A Reuters “fact check” proclaimed “There is no proof that spike proteins created in response to mRNA vaccines are harmful to the body, scientists have told Reuters.”
An anonymous Internet user even created a website using Dr. Bridle’s name, ByramBridle.com, and made the doctor and immunology professor out to be a “quack.” Thus an all-out campaign with unknown funding sources was at work smearing Dr. Bridle.
Dr. Bridle’s concerns were echoed by Dr. Robert Malone, one of the inventors of the mRNA technology now being used by Pfizer and Moderna. Dr. Malone said that, prior to the drugs’ emergency authorization use approvals, the FDA knew of these risks, because he himself had told them.

Dr. Peter McCullough completed his medical degree at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, and did his internal medicine residency at the University of Washington, then went on to obtain a master’s degree in public health at the University of Michigan. He has published on a range of topics with over 1000 publications and over 600 citations in the National Library of Medicine. His works have appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, Lancet, and the British Medical Journal. Dr. McCullough has made presentations at the New York Academy of Sciences, the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the European Medicines Agency.
Dr. McCullough said:
“It is beyond any shadow of a doubt that the vaccines are causing large numbers of deaths…It’s unequivocal, and I’m a card-carrying epidemiologist. I’m telling you, the vaccines are causing large numbers of deaths,”
Dr. McCullough explains how scientists evaluate cause and effect:
“The epidemiological construct that we have to go through is called the ‘Bradford Hill Tenets of Causality.’ So, the first question is: ‘is it a large epidemiologic signal?’ And I’ll tell you – it’s astronomical. All of the vaccines combined in the United States per year – its no more than 150 deaths, not temporally related.
Here [with the Covid vaccine] we are at over 21,000 deaths. So clearly its a massive signal.
The third criteria: ‘is it internally consistent? Are there other conditions that are now acknowledged that they themselves could be fatal?’ And the answer is sure. With myocarditis, the FDA agrees – all the regulatory experts agree – that the vaccines cause myocarditis. Can it be fatal? Yes. Have there been fatal cases published? Yes… There are over 200 peer reviewed publications of myocarditis.
How about other forms of death? vaccine induced thrombosis, blood clots, stroke, hypertension, myocardial infection – a variety of other lethal syndromes. There’s over 1,000 peer reviewed published on fatal and non fatal outcomes [in regard to the Covid vaccine]. So that criteria is met. It’s internally consistent.”

Dr. Lang Resigns from Professional Association Citing “Corruption” and Cover-Up
In the December 4th presentation of the series, the pathologists said they had shown their findings to the leaders of their professional organizations, but had encountered what could only be described as “corruption.” Professor Dr. Walter Lang showed his letter of resignation from the German Pathological Association, of which he was an early member, in protest of this “corruption.”
Dr. Lang concluded that the leader of the group was interested only in “burying” his findings, “along with the dead.”
Dr. Lang said the medical establishment was now “monstrous.” He said that UK data showed people who had been vaccinated were more likely to catch COVID than those who had not, referencing the chart below, and that “vaccination is useless, it doesn’t protect you.” (Other sources, vaccinated vs. unvaccinated cases and deaths)
Below: Chart presented in September 20 Pathology Conference, showing COVID positive tests in UK per 100,000 in population for a recent time period, vaccinated (RED BARS) versus unvaccinated (BLUE BARS), for different age ranges. In lowest ages range, under 18, data is limited.
Pathologists’ Findings Follow Years of Dissident Doctors and Scientists Calling for Complete Halt to COVID Vaccine Roll-Outs
The findings in the German pathology series come after doctors and scientists have long called for a halt to the mass roll-out of the substances long before Phase III clinical trials are complete, which is at the earliest the end of 2022, and say that too little is known about the mRNA spike protein”s long-term effects in the body. [Links to doctors’ calls for halts to mass “vaccinations,” partial list: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. ]
These warnings include that of Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi in July of 2021, video below. Dr. Bhakdi is Professor emeritus of the University of Mainz, where he served as the chair of the department of medical microbiology and hygiene from 1991 to 2012. From 1990 to 2012, he served as Editor in Chief of Medical Microbiology and Immunology. In 2001 he was awarded the Aronson Prize for achievements in microbiology and immunology.
In a video last July, Dr. Bhakdi warns of the precise type of damage to organs that pathologists are now reporting (below.)
Dr. Bhakdi warning about mRNA injections in July 2021 (view at Bitchute)
Dr. Bhakdi and Dr. Burkhardt have authored a joint statement, entitled “On COVID vaccines: why they cannot work, and irrefutable
evidence of their causative role in deaths after vaccination,” posted at Doctors for Covid Ethics.
In October of 2021, the peer-reviewed, highly-regarded science journal Toxicology Reports published a study which estimated deaths directly caused by the vaccines “could be in the hundreds of thousands for the USA,” and stressed that long-term effects are as yet unknown.
Below: Cover of issue of Toxicology Reports
Pfizer has requested in the past that the clinical trials data for it’s COVID injection be kept hidden from public view for 75 years. Hospitals take in an average of $160,000 extra per COVID case from the US government. And in his new book, The Real Anthony Fauci, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. reveals that high FDA officials are allowed to owns parts of patents on the very drugs they are charged with regulating, and can keep up to $150,000 per year in royalties, for life.
In closing an interview of pathologist Dr. Burkhardt this Februrary, 2022, Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi said:
“There’s no word to express this. If they don’t start doing something, they’re going to be in real trouble because let us state this very clearly. These agents are in experimental stage of use. There is an iron law saying that if you are introducing a medicine or an agent into the body of a person under experimental conditions, then you must always assume that if anything happens to the patient, it is the new agent that is causing it. And you are obliged to go and find out. You are not allowed to turn away, you are not allowed to turn away.”
Best estimates are that COVID is a 99.8% recovery rate virus, similar to flu, according to Stanford epidemiologist Dr. John Ioannadis. Common flu is 99.9%.

Fauci Admits PCR COVID Tests Do Not Measure Illness or Contagiousness
Anthony Fauci has made the shocking assertion, on MSNBC, that a positive COVID test of the kind which has driven nations to abrogate their most basic constitutional rights – and divided immediate families – means nothing in terms of public health.
Fauci said just before the New Year, on Dec. 29, 2021:
“PCR doesn`t measure replication-competent virus. It measures viral particles, nucleic acid. So in other words, I could be infected, have cleared the replication competent virus from me, but I can continue to be positive with a PCR for several days after recovering and not being transmissible at all.
The only way you can tell if it`s transmissible, if you can show that there really is live replication virus in you. And the tests don`t measure that.“
Thus in one fell swoop, Fauci undermined the basis for quarantine for a 99.8% recovery rate illness, which like flu strikes down overwhelmingly end-of-life elderly, and admitted that the basis for “lockdowns,” and media alarms preparing the public for more of them, are junk. Some scientists have long attempted to explain that the PCR test only shows the presence of at least a minute fragment of a virus, as someone who has long recovered might have.
In 2020 the president of Tanzania famously sent a sample to a lab to be PCR-tested for COVID, without telling the lab what the sample was. It came back positive. The sample was of a paw paw fruit.
In the MSNBC interview, Fauci confirmed the words of his most vocal critic, the late inventor of the PCR test, Nobel Prize winner Dr. Kary Mullis. In 1997 Dr. Mullis said that the PCR test was of little use in detecting viral illnesses, at that time referring to HIV.
Dr. Mullis, who died in 2019 just three months before COVID hit, also had some choice words for Fauci during their contemporaneous careers, saying:
“Tony Fauci does not mind going on television, in front of the people that pay his salary, and lie directly into the camera.”
Nevertheless, the media still sounds ominous warnings about cases of COVID “variants” rising or falling, flexing the muscles of emergency powers claimed by governments as a permanent “new normal.”

French Attorney Working with Reiner Fuellmich Arrested and Released, is Working on Crimes Against Humanity Charges Against Bill Gates, Fauci, Schwab, Others
The attorney, Virginie de Araujo Recchia, is on a team of lawyers led by attorney Reiner Fuellmich, widely known for successful lawsuits against Deutsche Bank and Volkswagon. Recchia was arrested on March 22 without charges and then released days later, after international outcry.
Fuellmich has filed a complaint charging Crimes Against Humanity at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, focusing on the British government but with possible subpoena powers of nationals in other countries. The ICC has assigned the docket number OTP-CR-473/21.
Among the charges made in the ICC complaint are:
- “The number of covid-19 cases have been artificially inflated due to the inaccuracy and unreliability of the PCR testing…”
- “a further way that the Covid-19 statistics have been artificially inflated is by the ‘rebranding’ of the common influenza, pneumonia and other respiratory infections as covid -19. “
- “Massive short-term damage and death from the ‘vaccines’. “
- Proven increase in spontaneous abortion after a Covid m-RNA ‘vaccination. A recent study in the New England Medical Journal showed 8 in 10 women had a miscarriage after taking a Covid ‘vaccine’ before the third trimester (Appendix 25)
- the suppression of safe and effective alternative treatments for Covid-19 amounts to murder and warrants a full investigation by the court.
Soon after Virginie de Araujo Recchia was arrested by French police at her home, her supporters put out the following press release.
Via Nigerian news outlet Paradise News:
“[Translation]: We are informing you that the lawyer M. Virginie de Araujo-Recchia was arrested this morning and placed in custody. We don’t fully know the circumstances under which such a measure was decided and what she is being charged with. We have been trying since this morning to determine where she has been taken. All our efforts in this regard have so far been in vain. Thanks for circulating this message, without changing a single word. We’ll keep you informed as soon as possible.“
Recchia was released on March 27 after international outcry.
