Just Days After Bill Gates Warns of Smallpox Attack, Multiple Vials Labeled Smallpox Found in Merck Lab

During a sit-down interview earlier this month with the chair of the Health Select Committee, Jeremy Hunt, for the think tank Policy Exchange, Bill Gates made an ominous prediction. He said governments need to chuck up a billion dollars a year, to pay for a Pandemic Task Force at the World Health Organization level, to carry out “germ games” to prepare for an ostensibly inevitable bioterrorism attack — particularly smallpox.

“You say, OK, what if a bioterrorist brought smallpox to 10 airports? You know, how would the world respond to that?” Gates asked.

“There’s naturally-caused epidemics and bioterrorism-caused epidemics that could even be way worse than what we experienced today and yet, the advances in medical science should give us tools that, you know, we could do dramatically better.”

As Gates asked for tens of billions in funding, he told Hunt that he hopes his next book will be titled, ‘We ARE ready for the next pandemic’.

There is nothing at all wrong with preparing for potential bio terror attacks. As we learned with COVID-19, ill prepared governments can and will wreak horrifying havoc on the economy, freedom, and health.

While it is unclear what Gates’ plans are for these “germ games,” so long as they don’t involve billions of dollars flowing into “gain of function” research to make viruses spread easier and become deadlier, being prepared is not a bad idea.

But now it’s time to put on your tinfoil hat.

When the Supreme Court Ruled a Vaccine Could Be Mandatory

In 1901 a deadly smallpox epidemic tore through the Northeast, prompting the Boston and Cambridge boards of health to order the vaccination of all residents. But some refused to get the shot, claiming the vaccine order violated their personal liberties under the Constitution.

One of those holdouts, a Swedish-born pastor named Henning Jacobson, took his anti-vaccine crusade all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The nation’s top justices issued a landmark 1905 ruling that legitimized the government’s authority to “reasonably” infringe upon personal freedoms during a public health crisis by issuing a fine to those who refused vaccination.
