Say Goodbye to SARS-CoV-2, Say Hello to the Monkeypox Pathogen
Possible “Monkeypox Terror Attacks” Announced by Bill Gates in November 2021
In a TV interview with Jeremy Hunt in early November 2021, Bill Gates warned governments to prepare for simultaneous smallpox terror attacks in 10 airports:
“You say, OK, what if a bioterrorist brought smallpox to 10 airports? You know, how would the world respond to that? There’s naturally-caused epidemics and bioterrorism-caused epidemics that could even be way worse than what we experienced today”, he said (emphasis added)
Ten Countries, Ten Airports. (That’s Where the Testing Takes Place)
Compare that to the latest news report on May 19, 2022, more than six months later (emphasis added):
An unprecedented outbreak of monkeypox virus has officially spread to 10 countries outside of Africa, with 107 confirmed or suspected cases reported as of this writing, in the United Kingdom (9 cases), Portugal (34), Spain (32), France (1), Belgium (2), Sweden (1), Italy (3), Canada (22), the United States (2), and Australia (1).

“Investing Billions in Research”. For Bill Gates, It’s Moneypox
According the Evening Standard (November 4, 2021) Bill Gates warned governments “to prepare for future pandemics and smallpox terror attacks by investing billions in research and development”.
The Microsoft founder also called for the formation of a new billion-dollar World Health Organisation Pandemic Task Force.
While the research may be expensive, he said that it could also lead to other innovations, such as eradicating flu and the common cold.
He said that countries like the US and the UK must spend “tens of billions” to fund the research.
“I’m hoping in five years, I can write a book called, ‘We ARE ready for the next pandemic’, but it’ll take tens of billions in R&D – the US and the UK will be part of that”, he said.
“It’ll take probably about a billion a year for a pandemic Task Force at the WHO level, which is doing the surveillance and actually doing what I call ‘germ games’ where you practise.” lEWvening SDtandrad ick here to read the full article.
But there is more in the unfolding monkeypox saga which is intent upon triggering and new fear campaign. This was planned well in advance. It started in December 2020. The Timeline is as follow:
- December 2020: Expert Meetings under NIT auspice. Planning and Formulation of a Table Top Simulation
- March 2021 Tabletop Simulation of Fictitious Monkeypox Pandemic at Munich Security Conference
- November 2021. Bill Gates warns governments
- May 2022. Towards a Monkeypox Pandemic
- May 2022. The marketing of Smallpox vaccines, effective against monkeypox
December 2020: The Expert Planning of A Tabletop Simulation of a Monkeypox Virus Pandemic
As early as December 2020, a simulation of a monkeypox pandemic had been envisaged by the NTI.
The NTI convened a group of experts to “advise” on the tabletop exercise scenario. Among the experts were senior officials, scientists and experts et al exclusively from U.S. entities including the Department of Homeland Security, USAID, State Department, Defense University, John Hopkins, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Department of Health and Human Services, etc. (See page 27 of report)
“These experts participated as individuals—not as representatives of their respective organizations—and they do not necessarily endorse the recommendations in this report.”
March 2021: Fictional Exercise Scenario of a Deadly Monkeypox Virus Pandemic
A few months later following the December 2020 consultations, a Table Top Simulation of a:
“fictional exercise scenario portrayed a deadly, global pandemic involving an unusual strain of monkeypox virus” was held by the NTI at the March 2021 Munich Security Conference:
The following NTI report entitled:
was undertaken by the Global Biological Policy and Programs, of the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI). The report summarizes the key findings from the exercise which was generously funded by Open Philanthropy .
A Note on the History of Scenario Simulations of Pandemics
Scenario Simulations of Pandemics were initiated with Rockefeller’s “Lock Step Scenario” in 2010 which consisted in the use of “scenario planning” as a means to carry out “global governance”. In the Rockefeller’s 2010 Report entitled “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development Area” scenarios of Global Governance and the actions to be taken in the case of a Worldwide pandemic were contemplated.
More specifically, the report envisaged (p 18) the simulation of a Lock Step scenario including a global virulent influenza strain.
The 2010 Rockefeller report was published in the immediate wake of the 2009 H1N1 swine flu pandemic.
And then in 2018, The Clade X Table Top Simulation was conducted under the auspices of the John Hopkins Center for Health Security.
Clade X was described by its organizers as a day-long pandemic tabletop exercise the purpose of which “was to illustrate high level strategic decisions in the United States and the world … to prevent a pandemic”.
It was “played by individuals prominent in the fields of national security or epidemic response”.
The Monkeypox Scenario Exercise Summary
Below is the executive summary of the March NTI Simulation (emphasis added) followed by relevant excerpts as well as the list of participants.
It is worth noting that while the December 2020 team which formulated the simulation project were exclusively from the US focussing on issues of national security, the participants of the Table Top Scenario were from Big Pharma, the Gates Foundation, the Wellcome Trust, WHO, UN, as well as representatives from the EU, China, Africa. (See list below)
In March 2021, the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) partnered with the Munich Security Conference (MSC) to conduct a tabletop exercise on reducing high-consequence biological threats. Conducted virtually, the exercise examined gaps in national and international biosecurity and pandemic preparedness architectures
and explored opportunities to improve capabilities to prevent and respond to high-consequence biological events. Participants included 19 senior leaders and experts from across Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe with decades of combined experience in public health, biotechnology industry, international security, and philanthropy.
The exercise scenario portrayed a deadly, global pandemic involving an unusual strain of monkeypox virus that emerged in the fictional nation of Brinia and spread globally over 18 months. Ultimately, the exercise scenario revealed that the initial outbreak was caused by a terrorist attack using a pathogen engineered in a laboratory with inadequate biosafety and biosecurity provisions and weak oversight.
By the end of the exercise, the fictional pandemic resulted in more than three billion cases and 270 million fatalities worldwide.
The Nature of the Simulation Borders on Ridicule: “Arnica Terrorists” Attack Brinia
Appendix B. Epidemiological Model Summary
Developed by Dr. Ellie Graeden Trae Wallace, Talus Analytics
The epidemiological elements of the exercise scenario were developed using a standard Susceptible– Exposed–Infectious–Recovered (SEIR) compartmentalized model. The model assumes no asymptomatic spread. The structure of the model is summarized in Figure B-1. A lab-modified version of monkeypox was intentionally released via aerosols in train stations in the fictional country of Brinia (population 250 million) by agents of a terrorist group operating in neighboring Arnica (population 75 million).
Through intentional modifications made by Arnican virology lab scientists sympathetic with the Arnican terrorists, this monkeypox strain is assumed to be more contagious than naturally occurring monkeypox— with a basic reproductive number (R0) for the modified strain of 3, as compared to 2.13 for the wildtype strain.11
The lab-modified strain is also engineered to be resistant to the smallpox vaccine.
Vaccine resistance is assumed to be driven by the introduction of the Interleukin-4 gene, as demonstrated in previous mousepox studies.12 We assume a case fatality rate of approximately 10 percent, which is consistent with previously described monkeypox outbreaks.13
To address these findings, the authors developed a series of recommendations.
- The WHO should establish a graded, transparent, international public health alert system.
- Develop and institute national-level triggers for early, proactive pandemic response.
- National governments must adopt a “no-regrets” approach to pandemic response, taking anticipatory action.
- Establish an international entity dedicated to reducing emerging biological risks associated with rapid technology advances.
- Develop a catalytic global health security fund to accelerate pandemic preparedness capacity building in countries around the world.
These recommendation point to support for the WHO Pandemic Treaty (coupled with the QR Code) which consists in establishing a global digital data bank which derogates the rights of individual member nation states.
It should be noted that two key participants of the Monkeypox 2021 NTI simulation were involved in the John Hopkins 201 Scenario October 2019 Simulation of the novel corona virus 2019-nCoV. These include Dr. George Gao Fu, head of China’s CDC and Dr. Chris Elias, President of the Global Development Division of the Gates Foundation, both of whom played a key role in the staging the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in early 2020.
And currently George Fu Gao is playing a key role in the implementation of China’s Zero Covid Strategy which has led to the lockdown of Shanghai as well several major urban areas starting in late March 2022.
Concluding Remarks. Is a New Fear Campaign being launched?
Governments have already placed orders for the delivery of small pox vaccines.
Pandemic Preparedness in America
In the US according to a Forbes May 19, 2022 report, the U.S government has already ordered “millions of doses of a vaccine that protects against the virus”.
Bavarian Nordic, the biotech company that makes the vaccine, has announced a $119 million order placed by the U.S., with the option to buy $180 million more if it wants. Should that second option be exercised, it would work out to approximately 13 million doses.
The order will convert existing smallpox vaccines, which are also effective against monkeypox, into freeze-dried versions, which have a longer shelf life. The converted vaccines will be manufactured in 2023 and 2024, the company says.
There were only two confirmed cases in the US of monkeypox according to a press report published on May 19.
In China, Social Media has Gone Haywire
