I used to think that the Murdoch press supported the vaccines rollout because it wanted to support the Morrison Government. Now I am convinced that I got that one-hundred-and-eighty-degrees wrong. My new working hypothesis is that the nonagenarian Murdoch supports Morrison because Morrison supports – because he needs to – the vaccines. For Morrison and the universally out-of-control State Premiers, the vaccine remains the political silver bullet. That is their only card to play (other than telling the truth of course).
Rupert Murdoch actively supports vaccines. He is, in fact, becoming part of a global, Bill Gates-led push to vaccinate the world. We might truthfully call it the Gates-Murdoch-Vaccines Industrial Complex, in which Australia’s political class are merely useful idiots, as are Australian journalists, whether employed by Murdoch or not. Yes, idiotically, the Channel Nine conglomerate and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation have been suckered in as well. It isn’t only the Murdoch press that is driving the push to vaccinate all, of course, but Murdoch’s papers in Australia are preaching vaccination with megaphones. The politically agile Keith Rupert Murdoch, and his Australian media outlets, are surprising, emergent enablers of the Gates global vaccine revolution.
Let us explore this.
The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) – yes, even named after Rupert’s mother, Dame Elisabeth – is a key university-based asset of the vaccinate-all brigade. Guess who funds the Murdoch Institute? Yes, Bill Gates, to the tune of over twenty million dollars. The funding came, right on cue, very shortly after the outbreak of the “pandemic” (in April and May 2020). A few months after another of Gates’ pro-vaxx instrumentalities, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), chaired by the Australian global public health mover-and-shaker, Jane Halton, ran scenarios about a global viral outbreak. Coincidentally. Plandemic, did I hear you murmur, vaguely audibly? Nah, we are not encouraged to think thoughts such as that. Here is what one source described as CEPI’s raison d’etre:
In 2017, Bill Gates co-founded the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) with the governments of Norway, India, Japan, and Germany along with the Wellcome Trust UK. The goal of the organization is to “accelerate the development of vaccines we’ll need to contain outbreaks” of future epidemics by, in Gate’s words, “using advances in genomics to map the DNA and RNA of pathogens and make vaccines.” Now the CEPI are scrambling to develop the corona vaccine.
Interestingly, the Gates Foundation even gave half a million dollars to Wuhan University in 2018: “To establish international research networks and data sharing platforms as well as develop policy recommendations for improving the medical insurance system in China…”
We know, of course, that Tony Fauci and the Wuhan Institute of Virology are tight, and that Gates and Fauci are tight. No wonder their mates tried to shut down the lab leak theory until it no longer proved possible to do so.
The MCRI, founded in 1986, self-describes as the largest children’s medical research institute in Australia. It is quite open about its efforts to get as many children vaccinated against Covid as possible.
Creepily one of its programs is called the Covid 19 Kids Research Program. Covid kids? The Pied Piper of Hamelin needs to call the office. Then there is this:
At MCRI and the campus, we have a range of vaccinology and immunisation experts working to monitor the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines in Australia. This includes work to monitor and evaluate vaccine safety and efficacy, led by Associate Professor Nigel Crawford. The team led by Associate Professor Margie Danchin is focusing on the importance of effective public health communication around vaccination and the role this plays in the overall public health response. The team also aims to understand how families have interpreted and adhered to public health prevention measures, their knowledge of COVID-19, and their trust in the government during this time, to assess how this contributes to effective vaccine deployment.
Read “effective vaccine deployment” as them trying to understand what the media often refer to (inaccurately) as “vaccine hesitancy”, and, no doubt, to provide the Government with strategies to combat this. As if it is the “hesitancy” that is in need of explaining rather than the manic desire of other Australians to be double-jabbed. (The manic desire is not universal, of course, as the number of people fully vaccinated is still low, is only creeping up very slowly and remains way short of the high but forever shifting percentage said to be required before governments deign to give our freedoms back to us).
The Institute proudly announced the following:
An A$10 million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will allow the MCRI clinical trial of the BCG vaccine against COVID-19 to extend to 10,000 healthcare workers across Australia, Spain and The Netherlands.
The Gates Foundation lists another $13m grant to the same Institute dated April 2020, again related to vaccines research. In September 2019 – BC or before Covid – Gates gave another $74,000 to the MCRI for, inevitably, vaccines research.
I have already written about the sainted but tainted professor from New Zealand, Tony Blakely, and his connections to the ubiquitous funding of Bill Gates. He is, not uncoincidentally, also from the University of Melbourne. Blakely, remember, is affiliated with the University of Washington, which is, just about, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Over a billion USD in funding. Blakely wants to see as many children as possible jabbed, as young as five years of age.
Then there is the funding from Murdoch entities:
Foxtel has generously supported Murdoch Children’s Research Institute for 10 years. Through the Foxtel Lap, Step-a-thon and Philanthropic support, Foxtel has contributed more than $6M in fundraising whilst also providing significant media and advertising support. This contribution has been vital and has helped our researchers tackle the most difficult health challenges facing our children today.
As one of Australia’s largest media companies, News Corp Australia is committed to championing groups, individuals and causes in the community and we are proud to support the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute’s work into world leading child health research.
News Corp Australia has supported the Murdoch Children’s Institute in many ways for more than a decade and is pleased to be a founding media partner of the Murdoch Children’s Institute’s Step-a-thon initiative to encourage children to “step to a healthier future”.
All to the good, one might think. Not so fast.
What Gates does by funding everything from the University of Washington with its pro-vaxx institute, to the BBC, to The Guardian (!), to the University of Melbourne, is to buy acquiescence to everything Gates does and believes in. And getting everyone in the world vaccinated against every known disease, and even unknown ones as well, is right at the apex of what drives Bill Gates Jr every single day of his relatively few remaining years.
Gates and Murdoch hooked up many years ago, through a Microsoft-News Corp deal in the UK. As noted by the UK Independent:
It would be impossible to dream up a more potent business pairing. Rupert Murdoch, the media tycoon whose News Corporation reaches all four corners of the world, and Bill Gates, the Microsoft founder whose software is found in almost every personal computer, are fast becoming business pals.
But it is not their friendliness but their shared world view, their shared power and their shared global reach that are of interest here. And they have collaborative form in relation to controlling the population through platform technology. This from 2012:
The Gates Foundation has ponied up $76.5 million for a controversial student data tracking initiative that’s engaged Rupert Murdoch’s Wireless Generation to ‘build the open software that will allow states to access a shared, performance-driven marketplace of free and premium tools and content.’
Microsoft is also reported to have used Murdoch to attack Google. Murdoch was on Twitter in 2015 praising the Gates Foundation.
Coincidentally (or not) Keith Murdoch (Rupert’s father) and Bill Gates Sr were active supporters of eugenics, once respectable and now superficially poo-pooed by the respectable classes but secretly still embraced by many. So, Keith and Bill Jr both grew up imbibing population control views. The whole managerial revolution first described by James Burnham, which has since morphed into rule by technocracy, is merely a short step away from viewing the underclass as an inconvenience to be, at best, tolerated, and at worst, diminished in every way possible. (Slightly unfortunately, given that Elisabeth Murdoch was married to a eugenicist, the MCRI was initially called the Birth Defects Research Institute).
The whiff of eugenics is never far from the surface in many of the current ruling class’s driving ideologies – not just population control, so avidly embraced, as we know, by Bill Gates, but those who place sustainability and Mother Earth above human rights, the religion that is climate change, ardent support for ready access to euthanasia
., and abortion (including to full-term), amongst others. Gates himself does have some very whacky views, despite the image of St Bill that is preserved in aspic by those who endeavour to restrict any of his oddities to come through.
We live at a time of, not just incompetent government, but of evil, freedom-sapping totalitarianism. Australia’s plight is now regularly portrayed in the global media. They are either laughing at us, shaking their heads at us, or, most often, just pitying us. The world simply cannot understand the behaviour of our ruling class, or of our people for allowing this to happen.
The ailments of our age have many fathers – Marx, Nietzsche, GB Shaw, Malthus, the French proponents of post-modernism, the cultural Marxists of the Frankfurt School, the sexual revolutionaries of the sixties, Arrhenius (a relative of Greta Thunberg and the father of the anti CO2 movement) and the rest. Those who wish to move history in a particular direction, who see themselves as having uncovered the truth about humanity, who set out to keep the underclass well and truly “under”, and who wish to harness the plebs as useful idiots for their dangerous games, have as their successors the very same people who are currently crushing us, right now, in this country.
Rupert Murdoch is unquestionably part of the ruling class, and one of the most tentacled corporate powers on the earth, with vast reach. He entertains, and so distracts, the underclass via his tabloids which mostly deliver sport, soft porn, pictures of influencers with round curves and reality TV gossip. Yes, he does allow superior journalists like Steve Waterson to have their say on lockdowns, but try and ever find anything that is anti-vaxx in one of his papers and you will not.
Clueless and self-interested parties such as Rudd and Turnbull are simply missing the big picture in relation to Murdoch. The evil News Corp is currently visiting upon us all his blatant vaccine propaganda as follows:
- Its non-reporting of vaccine-related deaths;
- Its participation in daily Covid death and case-porn;
- Its stifling of his own journalistic voices like Alan Jones;
- Its editors’ seeming insistence that almost every article published references vaccines;
- Its brutal assaults on anti-vaxxers by the likes of Peter Hoystedt (aka Jack the Insider); and
- Its refusal to recognise and to report the fact that vaccines do not stop the spread of Covid.
To name a few. This tsunami of propaganda is far more serious than anything the perpetual whingers, Rudd and Turnbull, have imagined. (Astonishingly, and idiotically, the rabidly pro-vaxx Turnbull believes that Murdoch – in the USA – is encouraging vaccine scepticism by allowing Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity to run their anti-vaxx line.)
The Australian should be re-titled The Daily Vaccinator. It is as simple as that. And even smart, university educated readers of The Oz, who like to see themselves as sophisticated types, in the main, one suggests, have no idea what is behind all of the vaccines push. It is past time that they wised up. And stopped believing that vaccine passports are not intrinsically evil, and that you can trade off one form of freedom (the right not to be injected with experimental drugs and banned from respectable society if you seek to exercise that right) for another (the right not to be locked up under house arrest for the sake of a bad but relatively non-threatening virus).
This need not be thought of as a conspiracy, but merely as the “convergent opportunism” of the ruling classes, their various components (Big Pharma, Tech and Media), the megalomaniac politicians who find themselves overseeing all this, venal academics whose careers now depend almost solely on obtaining external grant funding for their research, and the useful idiots who are backing the push.
The latter include the “go along to get along” brigade, those who just want to be allowed back into Church or to go on a holiday, and the ruthless, vile Karens for whom Covid has proved to be a very long, very enjoyable dream. Alas, many Faustian bargains have been done these past eighteen months.
Oh, and do not ever forget to follow the money. While we might conclude that, with Gates and possibly Murdoch, it is all about control and power. But remember that the “decade of vaccines” announced by Gates at – where else – the World Economic Forum – ten years ago has doubled his wealth to over one hundred billion dollars. Not bad going for a philanthropist allegedly “giving all his money away” to good causes.
All in all, we have been variously conned. Between Murdoch’s anti-vaxx troopers, the algorithmic cheats who run the big search engines and the ubiquitous, Orwellian fact checking machine – surely the world’s fastest growing industry – they have the whole misinformation/coverup game sewn up. We need to stop, look and listen to what is going on, and to search for, find and understand the hidden bits of the puzzle. Oh, and always read Murdoch’s papers with a very, very keen eye.
