The social media has been awash with conspiracy theories since the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) that has succeeded in making the world a prison yard and global cemetery was first unveiled in China in late 2019. Some of these theories are thought-provoking, some are mind-boggling, others are laughable while some others are downright bogus.
That notable professors and famous prophets have joined in purveying these theories has not allowed much space for critical reflection on the subject. While nothing can be dismissed as impossible under the sun, a bit of empirical analysis is imperative to put things in proper perspective. Let us zero in on a few of these theories that are very popular and appraise them critically.
The first is one of several associated with billionaire businessman, philanthropist and former richest man in the world, Bill Gates. The widely ‘copied’ and ‘forwarded as received’ message attributed to one Dr Jeannot Haddad reads:
“The Chinese biological laboratory in Wuhan is owned by Glaxo! Who, by chance, owns Pfizer! (the one who produces the vaccine!) Which, by chance, is managed by Black Rock finances. Who, by chance, manages the finances of the Open Foundation Company (SOROS FOUNDATION)! Which, by chance, serves the French AXA! Coincidentally, he owns the German company Winterthur. Who, by chance, built the Chinese laboratory in Wuhan!
Accidentally bought by the German Allianz. Which, incidentally, has Vanguard as a shareholder. Which is a shareholder of Black Rock. Which controls the central banks and manages about ONE THIRD of the global investment capital. Which, incidentally, is a major shareholder of MICROSOFT. The property of BILL GATES, who happens to be a shareholder of PFIZER (which sells the miracle VACCINE) and is currently the first sponsor of WHO!!!
If it is not clear enough why a bat came in and grabbed the SNAKE and the ENTIRE PLANET became infected? Maybe the Covid 19 virus was not just an accident of nature?
- Jeannot Haddad.
First, a quick Google search turns up two Haddads. The first is Dr. Jeannot Joseph Haddad, who is listed as “PRESIDENT at J HADDAD LAW FIRM Lebanon. Dr in public law. Experienced President with a demonstrated history of working in the law practice industry. Skilled in Negotiation, Nonprofit Organizations, Environmental Law, Arbitration, and Dispute Resolution. Professional studies in Arbitration in civil Aviation. Training the trainers. Strong business development professional with a Bachelor’s degree focused in Sociology from Lebanese University”.
Even if this were to be the Jeannot Haddad in question, despite the presence of the middle name Joseph that is absent from the attribution, it is not quite clear how his law background relates to the highly infectious disease. As one that is purportedly “skilled in negotiation”, could it be that he has been involved in some form of negotiation with the characters and companies mentioned in his hypothesis?
The second Haddad, like many other Haddads on the web, is not Jeannot. He is Joseph A Haddad, MD, whose specialties is (sic) listed to be Urology with Residencies & Internships at Univ. of Oklahoma, Urology, OK, 2017, and Univ. of Oklahoma, Surgery, OK, 2013. Obviously, he is not an epidemiologist and nothing in his profile suggests that he is an infectious disease expert.
Give or take, anything can happen. But let’s bear in mind that Bill Gates did not become the richest man in the world by selling vaccines. Neither was he selling only computers. What makes billionaires to become billionaires is investment foresight and the ability to make strategic business decisions. This includes boardroom games that are won by those willing to take huge risks. That includes incredible mergers and acquisitions. So, if Bill Gates invested in some or all of these listed companies, and acquired some of them over the years, what should he do now that one of them is the foremost manufacturer of vaccines? If you were the one, what would you do?
Nobody considers Nigeria’s Aliko Dangote as anti-Christ now that he is busy diversifying his investments. But by the time he becomes the richest man in the world, that is when conspiracy theorists will begin to tell us that he is behind the pauperisation of Northern Nigeria or that his investments all over Africa were to prepare grounds for the outbreak of one epidemic (God forbid!) from which he intended to profit. It happens also on the local scene. Wadada, a local music star from my ethnic base, sang that now that he is poor, nobody is saying that he did ritual for poverty, but by the time he is rich, people will begin to say he used a human being to perform ritual to become rich.
That’s the way the world rolls, unfortunately!
Still about Bill Gates is another one, by one Dr Robert F. Kennedy, Jr:
Covid vaccine should be avoided at all cost.
Message from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
“To all my patients:
I would like to draw your attention urgently to important issues related to the next Covid-19 vaccination. For the first time in the history of vaccination, the so-called last generation mRNA vaccines intervene directly in the genetic material of the patient and therefore alter the individual genetic material, which represents the genetic manipulation, something that was already forbidden and until then considered criminal. This intervention can be compared to genetically manipulated food, which is also highly controversial. Even if the media and politicians currently trivialize the problem and even stupidly call for a new type of vaccine to return to normality, this vaccination is problematic in terms of health, morality and ethics, and also in terms of genetic damage that, unlike the damage caused by previous vaccines, will be irreversible and irreparable.
Dear patients, after an unprecedented mRNA vaccine, you will no longer be able to treat the vaccine symptoms in a complementary way. They will have to live with the consequences, because they can no longer be cured simply by removing toxins from the human body, just as a person with a genetic defect like Down syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, Turner syndrome, genetic cardiac arrest, hemophilia, cystic fibrosis, Rett syndrome, etc.), because the genetic defect is forever!
This means clearly: if a vaccination symptom develops after an mRNA vaccination, neither I nor any other therapist can help you, because the damage caused by the vaccination will be genetically irreversible. In my opinion, these new vaccines represent a crime against humanity that has never been committed in such a big way in history. As Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, an experienced doctor, said: In fact, this “promising vaccine” for the vast majority of people should be FORBIDDEN, because it is genetic manipulation! ”
The vaccine, developed and endorsed by Anthony Fauci and funded by Bill Gates, uses experimental mRNA technology. Three of the 15 human guinea pigs (20%) experienced a “serious adverse event”.
Note: messenger RNA or mRNA is the ribonucleic acid that transfers the genetic code of the DNA of the cell nucleus to a ribosome in the cytoplasm, that is, the one that determines the order in which the amino acids of a protein bind and act as a mold or pattern for the synthesis of that protein.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_F._Kennedy_Jr. )
According to the link accompanying this ‘Forwarded” message, Dr Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of former US president John F. Kennedy, is a lawyer, environmentalist, and anti-vaccinationist. His views are therefore not surprising. It must be noted however that he is neither a physician nor an epidemiologist. So, who are his ‘patients’? And what makes him an authority in the subject?
“The vaccine, developed and endorsed by Anthony Fauci and funded by Bill Gates,” as declared by Dr Kennedy, suggests directly that Dr Fauci is in an ‘unholy’ alliance with Bill Gates. Dr Anthony Fauci, is an American physician and immunologist who turns 80 on December 24, and who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984 (36 years) under 6 US presidents. He must truly be an evil genius to have deceived the American Intelligence Community for so long!
I think we need to ask critical questions about these conspiracy theories on vaccines.
- Is it possible that the author of this message is hiding under the identity of a famous anti-vaccinationist to ventilate his opinion or perhaps propagate his agenda? If so, why?
- If the claims are true that Bill Gates is behind the recommendation and manufacture of vaccines; and that he even has a hand in the ‘manufacture’ of covid-19; all as part of the satanic plan to implant chips of the anti-Christ in human beings and/or reduce global population, one simple question is: How come different vaccines are being manufactured in different parts of the world? Russia started administering its SPUTNIK Covid-19 vaccine in early November. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s daughter was reported on November 6 2020 to have received a shot of the vaccine developed by Gamaleya Research Institute and the Russian Defence Ministry. Would the hardman, former KGB boss, Russian president Putin subject his people to the manipulations insinuated in these conspiracy theories?
- The UK approved vaccination ahead of the US. Is that part of Bill Gates’ manipulations too?
- The US delayed its approval of the Pfizer vaccine because it wanted it to pass through all scientific tests by the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) authorities. Are the scientists in the FDA on the payroll of Bill gates?
- Would the American intelligence community look away for all of this to be happening? Can America allow the death of over three hundred thousand of its citizens (more than the combined population of two countries in Africa – São Tomé and Príncipe and Seychelles) to satisfy the greed of just one man?
- Is it possible that President Donald Trump would allow the COVID-19 saga drag down his administration and practically deny him a much desired second term with the knowledge that a few Americans, including one in his government, were behind the disease?
- Could Trump have preferred to continually refer to coronavirus as the Chinese virus instead of the Bill Gates or Tony Fauci virus?
- Or did Trump, who claims to be blessed with one of the best brains in the world, and who is smarter than the FBI and NIA combined, not know?
- Are there special vaccines for special people like Benjamin Netanyahu and Joe Biden?
- Were they perhaps injected with placebos?
There is the one that claims that the New World Order is here -with reference to the proposed ‘vaccine passport’ that would require every international traveller to show that they had been vaccinated. It does not matter to the critics of this measure that, according to the EXPLORE HEALTH journal, “a vaccine passport is nothing new. Some countries already require immunization certificates for diseases like polio and yellow fever to prevent global spread. And decades ago, international travellers carried “International Certificates of Vaccination” approved by the World Health Organization and sponsored by the US Department of Health, Education and Welfare Public Health Services”.
Besides, this latest initiative is being spearheaded by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), an airline trade association that represents 290 airlines worldwide.
Anything is possible! I’m not supporting any side – just exercising the critical part of my mind.
People are already enjoying cheaper data because of 5G technology. Some countries are working hard on 6G. But some of our big pastors and prophets want us to believe that 5G is satanic. This brings us to yet another conspiracy theory that has to do with the deployment of 5G technology. It is ostensibly a disclosure by one Good-Samaritan former “head of the largest business unit at Vodafone, the headquarters at Newbury, between 2014, 2013 and 2015” (sic). Forget about the incongruity of the period he claims to have worked for Vodafone and let’s proceed to hear what he has to say:
“There is a deliberate strategy to roll out 5G, which is the 5th generation internet radio spectrum frequencies that enable mobile phones, smart phones, and all devices to function on a much faster processing ability… What is happening is that 5G, the frequency and the power which is ten times more powerful than 4G is reacting adversely with human cells, causing cells in our bodies to be poisoned, toxic, and our natural defence mechanism is pushing out that toxicity in the form of a virus. So, what you’re seeing is not coronavirus per se; you’re seeing cell poisoning manifesting with fluids, chemicals with viruses that the body fights to dispose of because it’s harmful to its physical body. So, one of the first cities Vodafone, Huawei and some of the other technology companies rolled out 5G; ubiquitous, blanket 5G, guess where it was – Wuhan, China, where this coronavirus was supposedly meant to start in some fish market. That is complete nonsense. It started as a result of radioactive, or radio frequencies creating radiation that was toxic to cells, and that’s why people were falling over and dying in the streets, etcetera!”
“It takes 6 months for 5G to impact your physical body. Last year (2019), obviously Wuhan was the first city, then Spain rolled out 5G, Italy rolled out 5G and you’ve seen an uncommon level of fatalities because of the level of 5G penetration in these countries. Italy has had more fatalities than any other country because it is densely populated with 5G and the older generation don’t have the immune system to fight against it.”
Watch the video here:
By the anonymous narrator’s account, and using his own words, this is “complete nonsense”. He obviously recorded and circulated this yarn before the US became the hotbed of coronavirus, so nothing is mentioned about the US which has by far the highest number of infections and deaths for over 3 months now. It might interest anyone that cares to find out that 5G was already extensively rolled out in the US by 2018 – more than a year before Covid-19 was unveiled.
Consider the following:
“5G, or fifth-generation technology has been in the works for nearly a decade, and limited service in select cities began rolling out as early as 2018, though the U.S. still has a long way to go to reach the full potential of 5G”.
“By September 2018, T-Mobile had implemented its 5G backbone in over 1,000 cities in 36 states. In early 2019, T-Mobile confirmed that on the 600 MHz spectrum, one 5G tower can transmit signals over one thousand square miles”.
Also, this Good Samaritan warns us not to allow ourselves to be injected with any vaccine because it contains a microchip that will make it possible for every move you make to be monitored. By implication, Benjamin Netanyahu and Joe Biden have been injected with vaccines that contain microchips that will be used to monitor their movements for the rest of their lives. This was done while the intelligence agencies of the UK, Israel and the United States were all sleeping!
He confesses wittingly or unwittingly that “a new global currency is coming out; that’s why I’ve been pushing what I’ve been pushing for the last five years IN AFRICA, with our own digital currency, to combat what was coming.”
When are we going to be tired of these conspiracy theories or at least do our own due diligence before helping to circulate them? Isn’t it obvious that there are people with their individual agenda, like disgruntled former employees, that may be intent on vendetta? Do we bother to authenticate the background of the authors or the veracity of their messages before helping to forward them ‘as received’?
There is even a religious dimension. One concerned commentator said, “just be watchful that the vaccine is not given on the forehead or on the hand. Otherwise, listen to what Revelation 14:9 offered. That it’s being manufactured in different parts of the world by different countries may be the usual subtle tricky ways of Satan. It may later merge. But what I personally watch out for is where the vaccine is being administered.” Indeed, Revelation 14:9 says:
“A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, 10 they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury…”
Vaccines are not administered on the buttocks, the wrist, or the forehead. They are normally administered on the upper arm, close to the shoulder. That is where volunteers were given the candidate Covid vaccines and where the approved ones have been administered so far. That is where 91-year-old grandma, Margaret Keenan, got the first jab of the Pfizer vaccine in the UK, which she described as her “best early birthday present”. That is where Joe Biden and Bibi Netayanhu were given their doses. Some of us still carry scars on our upper arms where measles vaccine doses were shot into us in the 60s and 70s with those machines that looked like mini Ak47 rifles.
It would be suspicious indeed, if they were to insist that it should be given on the forehead. But we must also bear in mind that the devil knows the Bible more than some pastors and can manipulate the scriptures to thwart efforts to eliminate COVID-19.
In the five years leading up to 1962, an investigation into the morbidity and mortality among children under the age of 5 years was conducted at the Wesley Guild Hospital in Ilesha, Western Nigeria. Of the acute infective fevers, measles was found to be outstanding as a cause of death. That was how measles vaccines were introduced. Without them, many of us might not be alive today.
In telecommunications, 6G will be the sixth-generation standard for wireless communications technologies supporting cellular data networks. It is the planned successor to 5G and will likely be significantly faster, at speeds of ~95 Gbit/s.
On November 6, 2020, China successfully launched an experimental 6G test satellite into orbit, along with 12 other satellites, using a single Long March 6 launch vehicle rocket. But we are being told in Africa that 5G is meant to cause us mortal harm.
It is a mark of intellectual laziness to swallow hook, line and sinker, everything that is available on the social media. It is even worse when ‘educated’ people that should be educating people help to circulate contentious yarns woven by anonymous characters who might be pushing ulterior agenda. Given that nothing is impossible, as we acknowledged previously, could it be that some parties are pushing the 5G conspiracy theory to discourage some parts of the world from embracing it, thus making them technologically backward for as long as possible?
Let’s leave that question for time to answer. For now, it suffices to say that a wise man looks at both sides of a busy street before crossing from one side to the other.
