“When Covid-19 struck, the governments of the world weren’t prepared.
From America to Europe to Asia, they veered from minimizing the threat to closing their borders in ill-fated attempts to quell a viral spread that soon enveloped the world. While the most powerful nations looked inward, four non-governmental global health organizations began making plans for a life-or-death struggle against a virus that would know no boundaries.
What followed was a steady, almost inexorable shift in power from the overwhelmed governments to a group of non-governmental organizations, according to a seven-month investigation by POLITICO journalists based in the U.S. and Europe and the German newspaper WELT. Armed with expertise, bolstered by contacts at the highest levels of Western nations and empowered by well-grooved relationships with drug makers, the four organizations took on roles often played by governments — but without the accountability of governments.
While nations were still debating the seriousness of the pandemic, the groups identified potential vaccine makers and targeted investments in the development of tests, treatments and shots. And they used their clout with the World Health Organization to help create an ambitious worldwide distribution plan for the dissemination of those Covid tools to needy nations, though it would ultimately fail to live up to its original promises.
The four organizations had worked together in the past, and three of them shared a common history. The largest and most powerful was the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the largest philanthropies in the world. Then there was Gavi, the global vaccine organization that Gates helped to found to inoculate people in low-income nations, and the Wellcome Trust, a British research foundation with a multibillion dollar endowment that had worked with the Gates Foundation in previous years. Finally, there was the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, or CEPI, the international vaccine research and development group that Gates and Wellcome both helped to create in 2017. …
The investigation, which relied on more than four dozen interviews with U.S. and European officials and global health specialists, charted the step-by-step journey through which much of the international response to the Covid pandemic passed from governments to a privately overseen global constituency of non-governmental experts. It also detailed the significant financial and political connections that enabled them to achieve such clout at the highest levels of the U.S. government, the European Commission and the WHO. …
The WHO was crucial to the groups’ rise to power. All had longstanding ties to the global health body. The boards of both CEPI and Gavi have a specially designated WHO representative. There is also a revolving door between employment in the groups and work for the WHO: Former WHO employees now work at the Gates Foundation and CEPI; some, such as Chris Wolff, the deputy director of country partnerships at the Gates Foundation, occupy important positions.
Much of the groups’ clout with the WHO stems simply from money. Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, the Gates Foundation, Gavi, and the Wellcome Trust have donated collectively more than $1.4 billion to the WHO — a significantly greater amount than most other official member states, including the United States and the European Commission, according to data provided by the WHO. …”
Actually, Bill Gates really was using his financial power and COVID as an emergency as an excuse to bend governments around the world to his knee. There is also a revolving door of corruption, not unlike the military-industrial complex, between the public health bureaucracy, NGOs and pharmaceutical companies. This incestuous network of elites was able to overwhelm and dominate governments.
“As governments scrambled at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, four global health organizations stepped in, using their multibillion dollar bank accounts and political connections to help direct how world leaders responded to a virus that has killed 6 million people, according to data from a financial analysis by POLITICO journalists based in the U.S. and Europe and the German newspaper WELT.
The investigation shows the extent to which the organizations used their influence to help make life-or-death decisions on the allocation of critical funding, shots and medicines. Together, these organizations form a kind of global health monopoly, health advocates say. …”
Cabals of “experts” who rotate through globalist organizations like the WHO and NGOs seized power from governments.
“For this financial analysis — the first of its kind — POLITICO journalists based in the U.S. and Europe and the German newspaper WELT set out to try to understand the extent to which global non-profits and philanthropies helped direct the world’s response to Covid-19 and how they positioned themselves to play a major role in the next pandemic.
To do that, the journalists identified multiple global health organizations that played integral roles in the world’s Covid pandemic response and came to focus on four because of their size, connections to one another and influence with governments and the WHO. They were: The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations; Wellcome Trust; and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. These four organizations played a major part in envisioning and founding critical programs to help develop, secure and distribute medical countermeasures such as vaccines, tests and treatments. …”
