The Real Cost of Food and Medicine in Africa – Everything Africans Own
What is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation really doing in Africa? A recent Goalkeepers report entitled “Is Poverty Inevitable” attracted my attention this week. With characteristic billionaire-level content writers in tow, the world’s most famous philanthropic couple publish a warning on African birth rates, poverty, and disease. Their foundation’s real agenda has very little to do with altruism.
The problem with Bill Gates and his foundation is that no PR guru in the world can conceal what is pointedly obvious to anyone reading their narratives. The basic tenets of this foundation’s efforts are BS. “There are too many African babies; they’re going to die.” This statement is counterbalanced with “Let’s give out more drugs to save their lives, and then educate these masses so they can be more productive, so Africa’s economy can grow.” And grow, and grow, and grow to be another Singapore, or China, or Southeast Asian manufacturing hub? It’s doublespeak. Or is Africa just going to be a consumer market powered on air and service related jobs? I hope you see my point here. The Bill & Melinda report goes on in big bold letters:
“The basis of our optimism about the world has always been our belief in the power of innovation to redefine what’s possible.”
The rich couple, or their public relations and marketing team one, continue by citing their deceased friend, friend, Swedish academic and statistician, Hans Rosling, whom they cite as if he were Jesus in a sermon in his description of people’s different standards of living. Rosling used the metaphor that of how people travel: from sandals to bicycles to cars to airplanes. The way the paragraph fits together lets me know someone with a marketing background probably wrote it. So all those Africans being saved by vaccines Bill & Melinda help supply, they’re soon going to be flying airplanes. Or not.
Whenever one researches US government, major corporate or NGO, and especially billionaire philanthropic giving to poor countries, the presence of a “payoff” should be understood. I won’t get into Bill Gates’ philosophies or how he is tied to eugenics, but his connections with the so-called “deep state” and the CIA in the US bear mentioning here. If you bear with me, I can show a tiny window into what these privateers are up to.
Remember I said to look for the “payoff?” Well, the Bill & Melinda Gates Goalkeeper report gives away the west’s real intentions in Africa. In parts of the document, we do not even have to read between the lines to discover what is “next” in the new colonial Africa. First, the problem child of US relations in the region, Ethiopia is fawned over as a guiding hope by the Gates’, and you can bet trouble is about to break out there soon if I don’t miss my guess. First Lady Melania Trump is next door in Kenya this week, and the Gulf States are vying with America for influence in the region, so Ethiopia is due for a regime change. But the Goalkeeper document gives us the smoking gun when it reveals Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo as the most “problematic” countries in Africa. Now get this.
It just so happens that Nigeria is a natural resource treasure trove, a country that produces 2.5 million barrels of crude oil per day, and which has proven natural gas reserves of 160 trillion cubic meters. There is so much there that the other large resource reserves are not even tapped yet. Nigeria’s coal, for instance, is the finest quality in the world. There are 3 billion tons of it beneath the country’s topsoil. Other resources are prevalent and worth trillions of dollars in the long term.
As for the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the country currently has $24 trillion dollars worth of untapped resources including the world’s largest reserves of coltan and significant quantities of the world’s cobalt, plus one million tons of lithium. The country also has billions worth of diamonds, gold, and other resources. I know the reader will find it interesting that Bill & Melinda Gates create in-depth reports to let us know the good and the potential their philanthropy does, but nowhere in their literature have I found the fact that no less than twenty-five international mining companies were active in the D.R. Congo at any given time. It should also come as no surprise that Gates and his fellows are backing the resurgence of nuclear, which means uranium prices will soon skyrocket. And yes, both these countries have significant uranium deposits.
Hardly anyone reading this report will have read how Caterpillar is part of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust’s investments portfolio. The fact Caterpillar is one of the world’s biggest producers of machinery for the mining and oil and gas industry. But the depth and breadth of what Gates and his billionaire brethren are doing in this world cannot be illustrated in this way. I finally got a handle on just how low these pond scum are reading a story about Gate’s investment portfolio and then looking at his almost 60% stake in Berkshire Hathaway, the conglomerate made famous by none other than Warren Buffett.
Berkshire Hathaway is one of the most resource intensive holdings in the world. Looking down the list of wholly owned subsidiaries, we find construction and materials, logistics, and another natural resource intensive business dominating the investments. In short, everything Africa has, Gates and Buffett, create value-added on it. They also hold minor but significant positions in foods, oil, and gas (Phillips 66 14.53%), and in the pharmaceuticals Gates aims to cure Africa and the world with (DaVita – 19.2%), and Helzberg Diamonds (100%) that helped establish the “Diamonds Do Good” campaign attended by representatives from many places Bill & Melinda are trying to “save.”
I could go on for five hundred pages, and you still would not have the “scoop” on what these lowlifes are doing. They’re leveraging positions everywhere there is lithium to go in one of their Duracell batteries (100%), or tantalum carbide and tungsten carbide for their toolmaking (International Metalworking Companies 100%). The list, the unbelievable mountain of wealth I am talking about, it’s staggering. Hell, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has a former CIA spook named Shana Tarbell as its director of Global Security. There’s not room here to go into Gates’ fingers in the pie of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), an initiative tied to GMO giants like Monsanto-Bayer, DuPont, Dow, and Syngenta. I have to stop here. Really, the magnitude of it all is out of this world.
What is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation doing in Africa? Everything except saving the poor people who live there. There’s scarcely anything profitable happening in the nations mentioned in this Goalkeepers report that these people are not taking margins off of. These famous scorekeepers intend to win the game of rich versus poor, and they are ahead trillions to zero in Africa. What a bunch of soulless creeps.
