As governments at every level in virtually every nation have grappled with the novel coronavirus pandemic in their own ways, an oft-echoed phrase has been that “the cure cannot be worse than the disease.”
Unfortunately, and likely out of sheer terror, people the world over are eager to embrace totalitarian globalism if it means saving them from the dreaded virus—even if historical evidence proves that such governments have killed more people than the virus ever will.
A headline from Vogue, of all places, asking why Bill Gates isn’t “running the Coronavirus Task Force,” has demonstrated this sad reality with crystal clarity.
The op-ed, written by editor Stuart Emmerich, begins by accusing President Donald Trump of scapegoating the World Health Organization “for his own administration’s slow and disorganized response.”
Emmerich cites a pair of critics of Trump’s decision to halt WHO funding before stating that “perhaps the most prominent voice to publicly rebuke the president was that of Bill Gates,” quoting an early tweet from Gates which said that Trump’s move was “as dangerous as it sounds.”
Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds. Their work is slowing the spread of COVID-19 and if that work is stopped no other organization can replace them. The world needs @WHO now more than ever.

Naturally, a globalist like Bill Gates would suggest that a global entity that bilks millions of dollars and wields unelected authority over citizens of every sovereign nation is the end-all for fighting COVID-19. Apparently, it’s beyond his or anyone’s imagination that nations and their own duly-appointed leaders could handle the issue.
Perhaps to maintain a semblance of transparency, Emmerich notes that, while the United States is the WHO’s single largest donor, The Gates Foundation is the next biggest donor and provides nearly 10% of the agency’s funding.
Stewart proceeded to hearken back to Gates’ comments in past TED Talks and op-eds that a pandemic would once again wield a stranglehold on the world, and that we would not be ready for it.
“If anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades, it’s most likely to be a highly infectious virus rather than a war—not missiles but microbes,” Gates said back in 2015. “We have invested a huge amount in nuclear deterrents, but we’ve actually invested very little in a system to stop an epidemic. We’re not ready for the next epidemic.”
“We ignore the link between health security and international security at our peril,” the Microsoft founder wrote in a 2017 op-ed for Business Insider. “Whether it occurs by a quirk of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists say a fast-moving airborne pathogen could kill more than 30 million people in less than a year. And they say there is a reasonable probability the world will experience such an outbreak in the next 10 to 15 years.”
When the WHO first declared coronavirus “a public health emergency of international concern” back in January, the Gates Foundation pledged up to $100 million to help contain the outbreak. Those funds, the foundation said, would be used to “strengthen detection, isolation, and treatment efforts; protect at-risk populations; and develop vaccines, treatments, and diagnostics.”
Since the pandemic, Gates has made himself quite busy declaring on virtually every public forum that will feature him that live cannot return to normal until a coronavirus vaccine hits the market and, as he suggested in an interview with The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah, is given to each of the planet’s “seven billion people.”
In a more recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Gates tempered his call for mass vaccination by adding that normalcy could return if we develop “therapeutics that are over 95% effective.”
Of course, one can’t have a successful totalitarian regime that forces hastily-produced vaccines on its citizens without tracking them like cattle, so Gates has also floated the idea of a database of digital vaccination certificates—an idea current task force head Dr. Anthony Fauci has also supported.
“This is the voice of reason that should be leading the country’s response to the current pandemic,” Emmerich says. “Not the robotically obsequious Mike Pence nor the comically unqualified Jared Kushner—and not the erratic, combative, self-centered person taking the podium at the daily White House briefings,” referring to his president.
“It’s not going to happen, of course,” Emmerich concludes. “But it should.”
For being an op-ed, Emmerich’s piece surprisingly lacks any opinion as to why Gates wouldn’t be tapped to lead the task force.
Could it be, perhaps, that he isn’t qualified in any way, shape, or form to be an authority on public health policy? Could it be that he has several clear conflicts of interest in Gates’ control of the WHO and his “hand-over-fist” earnings amid the pandemic? Or, could it be that Gates turned down an informal job offer from the Trump administration back in 2018 because being Trump’s science advisor was “not a good use of [his] time”?
Existential fear can drive people to do senseless things—this is why we see such extreme language used to hype “climate change” in order to advance a socialist agenda. We must be vigilant, saints. We cannot allow fear to drag our society back into the dark ages. We must stand firm for truth and liberty.
