Link1: because he was right in his prediction that the virus could come out of a wet market in China makes him a chief suspect in the creation or spread of the virus? No. And he wasn’t the first to make the prediction. Epidemiologists have been saying it for years now. Wet markets that trade wild or exotic animals have often been linked to outbreaks of zoonotic diseases, and because China has many of them, it is not a long stretch to assume that wet markets in China would be the most likely source. On a slight tangent, he unfortunately didn’t foresee (or voice) the role labs could have in the creation of novel viruses (chimeras). If you have time on your hands, the link below is a challenging but excellent read on the dangerous world of gain-of-function, viral research.
Link 2: this link is more concerned about the inner musing and fantastical ruminations going on in head of an attention deprived Roger Stone—to be fair to Roger, the New York Post decided to make a ‘serious‘ piece on what was probably light heartened banter on a Radio/podcast show.
But anyway, I never heard Bill Gates suggest that mandatory vaccination or implanting microchips into people was what needed to be done here. And then what? How would that serve Bill Gates? The microchip in the forehead idea has been a longstanding obsession within conspiracy groups. You really don’t need need it in your forehead. A smartphone will do.
Link 3: so he is warning that we need to stay serious and remain in lockdown for awhile yet, while also buying stocks of a depreciated investment fund. Additionally, he is the largest private contributor to the WHO. I can’ t see the conflict of interest. By that logic, anyone making a buck on a drop in share prices could be seen as taking advantage of the situation.
On his role with the WHO, most people would argue that the WHO wasn't quick enough to call it a pandemic. And so the more important question should be, ’ why didn’t the WHO call it a pandemic sooner?’, a question which then points the blame to China.
But did the stock market drop when the WHO announced a pandemic on the 11th of March? No, it actually ended higher and recovered half the losses incurred the day before (which was ofc a spike unrelated to the announcement).
Of course, I agree that we shouldn’t have private philanthropists rich enough to donate that kind of money to groups of their choice. But that is a different topic.
