    Ignoring own standards and experts, Utah commission pushes reopening

    The COVID-19 model from the CDC predicts an increase in deaths from the coronavirus from Utah in the coming weeks, and key indicators predict more hospitalizations are to come.

    These are facts from established “respectable” media concerning the interests of Bill Gates, one of the world’s richest men and the most famous advocate of mass global vaccination as the solution to our current crisis. Sources are in parentheses and will pass any fact checking.

    Bill Gates is funding Earthnow, a company planning to send 500 satellites into orbit to provide live high-definition video of the entire planet, apparently the first attempt at total real-time planetary surveillance (CNBC 4-25-18).

    Microsoft has issued a flurry of patents concerning its development of Brain Computer Interfaces, (Winbuzzer-Windows News-11-20-17). BCI’s are defined as “a direct communication pathway between an enhanced or wired brain and an external device “

    The Gates Foundation purchased 5.3 million shares of Crown Castle International, which owns, operates, and leases more than 40,000 cell towers, 65,000 route miles of fiber, and 65,000 on-air or under-contract small cell nodes. This is the largest available national infrastructure for 5G, (Profit Confidential Investment News 11-12-19). Hundreds of international experts have called for a moratorium on 5G, citing “serious health concerns.”

    Microsoft is a chief sponsor and partner of “ID 2020,” which seeks to create a unique “digital ID” for everyone on Earth, an ID that their website says “lives with you from life to death,” ( Absent from their website is any description of the form this ID should take, though most observers agree it could only be accomplished with an implant or digital tattoo.

    In a remarkable coincidence, the Gates Foundation sponsored a Pandemic Simulation (Event 201) involving a fictional coronavirus in New York City on Oct. 18, 2019, just weeks before the first cases. (

    Gates said “things won’t go back to normal until we have a vaccine that we’ve gotten out to basically the entire world,” while pledging to assist in the development of this coming vaccine (Wall Street Journal-April 5, 2020).

    “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also,” Jesus said. (Matthew 6:21) Since becoming renowned as a philanthropist, Bill Gates’ wealth has ballooned from $50 billion to $110 billion. Some apparently believe that simply outlining his deeds and investments equates to “conspiracy theories.”

    Personally, I don’t believe it’s inappropriate to speculate on the investments or motives of powerful men. After making his fortune from the people of Earth, Mr. Gates has positioned himself as a kind of savior. Here he comes with a needle in his hand. Do you trust him?
