Is Africa the Covid Smoking Gun? By from Worldly Turnings blog

Just think, a whole continent with a very low Covid-19 vaccination rate, extensive use of prophylactic Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine, and very low Covid-19 case numbers and deaths. Also, this continent is quite poor and has few of what are considered the advantages of modern medicine in more developed parts of the world. It’s enough to make one suspicious of the officially approved narrative. From Worldly Turnings blog at worldlyturnings.blog:

Introduction. In October 2020 I wrote about the US healthcare system and how it is a total failure on Covid, allowing people to die without simple treatments for the Bioweapon dubbed Covid. A year later we have increased our hold on #1 slot on healthcare expenditures per capita. Nothing has improved and in many ways our healthcare establishment has gotten worse. Much worse. And, now we have the smoking gun case of Africa proving the possibly intentional manslaughter of people in the name of bad science, profiteering or worse – depopulation….

The most expensive healthcare system in the world (by a huge margin) is the United States. We have 45% higher healthcare expenses in our “free market” healthcare system than #2 in the world – Switzerland.

Strangely, and with barely a whimper from Americans that are going broke paying insane medical bills year after year, the USA ranks in the top 20 out of 195 countries for Covid mortality with 2368 deaths/1,000,000. This equates to roughly 140 Covid only deaths/1,000,000 using the 6% CDC figure obtained through the VAERS database. This is less than the median annual influenza deaths over 10 years – yet we have blithly crashed the world for the Great Reset. I digress.

Below are the lowest Covid death rate countries in the world.  Of the 38 countries with the lowest mortality rates are 28 countries located in the continent with the worst healthcare systems in the world – Africa.   How is this possible?

Lowest Covid 19 Mortality by Country (as of 12/6/21):

SOURCE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVID-19_pandemic_death_rates_by_country

Simple.   Most African countries allow use of inexpensive (i.e. non patentable US Pharmaceutical Pseudo-Vaccines) Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin for early treatment.   We don’t.  And, they also don’t fake death counts to establish totalitarian rule by a deadly vaccine and human segregation brainwashing experiment on the masses.

Security Will Ethiopia Become Biden’s Libya 2.0 or a Driver for an African Renaissance? By Matthew Ehret

Ethiopia’s government has shown insufficient subservience to the US government and you know what that means. Regime change! From Matthew Ehret at strategic-culture.org:

The situation in Ethiopia is rather simple to understand as long as you don’t believe western media spin doctors, Matthew Ehret writes.

Many westerners trying to make sense of the events in the “dark continent” of Africa have many barriers standing in the way of their minds and reality. This must be the case, for without such filters of spin proclaiming Africa’s problems to be self-induced (or the consequence of Chinese debt slavery), we in the west, might actually feel horrified enough to demand systemic change. We might come to recognize that the plight of Africa has less to do with Africa and more to do with an intentional program of depopulation, and exploitation of vital resources.

Despite a rich history and over a billion people living on the continent, Africa suffers from the lowest per capita rates of electricity and potable water in the world. Of the 30,000 children who die needlessly each day from preventable causes (disease, water availability, hunger, etc), the majority are from Africa. Living standards are in turn abysmally low for the 340 million Africans who live in extreme poverty while insufficient healthcare infrastructure, and sanitation has resulted in a massive rate of infant mortality that reaches as high as 80-100 deaths per 1000 for many African nations.

To the degree that certain uncomfortable facts are kept obscured, this façade has been maintained.

Recently, a stone has been thrown at the glass artifice of false narratives that has attempted to maintain the belief that Africa’s problems arise from authoritarian governments or “not enough democracy”.

The Covid-19 Omicron Variant: Towards a Fourth Wave Lockdown? Pretext to Introduce New Repressive Policy Measures, by Prof Michel Chossudovsky

More fake science and hysterical propaganda to justify still more repression, disease, and death. From Prof Michel Chossudovsky at lewrockwell.com:

Both the governments and the media in chorus are now engaged in a renewed fear campaign focussing on the emergence of a new  “deadly” SARS-CoV-2 variant.

Last May it was the Delta variant (B.1.617.2)which allegedly originated in India. And now it’s Omicron (B1.1.529) which, according to the WHO’s “technical advisory group” was first detected in South Africa. According to reports, Omicron has a “very unusual constellation of mutations”

Anthony Fauci is leading the disinformation campaign, already pointing to the need for restrictions on air travel.  Meanwhile US stock markets have dropped amid a new wave of Covid panic. 

In a contradictory statement, Fauci intimated that Omicron “is already in the United States but has yet to be detected”. 

“I would not be surprised if it is, we have not detected it yet, but when you have a virus that is showing this degree of transmissibility and you’re having travel-related cases they’ve noted in other places already, when you have a virus like this, it almost invariably is going to go all over,”  (NBC, November 26, 2021)

“Partial lockdowns” are already contemplated including bans on international travel. The stated intent is  to “save lives”.

In the UK, “…there are growing fears” that the newly discovered Omicron variant, “could impact Christmas”.

Rest assured, While “there’s no reason to panic,” says Dr. Anthony Fauci, the new Omicron variant must “be taken seriously and warrants the newly imposed travel ban against South Africa and seven neighboring countries.” (CNN)

A travel ban against Africa, using the Covid-19 omicron variant as a pretext, could also have devastating social and economic impacts on the African Continent, including the disruption of trade relations. Is there a hidden agenda?

Moreover, it is worth noting that throughout sub-Saharan Africa, large sectors of the population have refused the vaccine. The percentage of the population which is vaccinated is exceedingly low. In this regard, Washington is intent upon enforcing the vaccine program in Africa on behalf of Big Pharma. Joe Biden has generously offered to deliver 570.4 million doses of the vaccine to developing countries, a large share of which will be channeled to Africa in the form of “foreign aid”.

No Mystery Why Some Countries Are Largely Flu/Covid-Free, by Steve Lendman

Africa gets a lot of sunshine (Vitamin D), people there take Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine to prevent diseases such as malaria, and only about 8 percent have been vaccinated. Africa has one of the lowest Covid case and death counts in the world. From Steve Lendman at alethonews.com:

Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru, Guatemala, Honduras, Macedonia, Uttar Pradesh, India, Zimbabwe, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, parts of Brazil, and other nations have the following in common:

They use known safe and effective ivermectin for treating and curing flu/covid.

As a result, the incidence of the viral illness in these countries is low.

Their success is in stark contrast to surging outbreaks, serious cases, hospitalizations and deaths throughout the US/West, Israel and in other heavily mass-jabbed countries.

Since discovered and approved for human use, around 4 billion doses of ivermectin have been prescribed worldwide.

The WHO includes it on its list of Essential Medicines.

In 2015, co-developer of the drug, Dr. Satoshi Omura, won a Nobel Prize in Medicine.

In February, British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) — comprised of medical and scientific experts from over 15 countries — recommended global use of ivermectin as a verifiably safe and effective drug for preventing and treating flu/covid.

Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy director and BIRD organizer Dr. Tess Lawrie stressed the following:

“Ivermectin is already in use around the world and can reach the poorest people long before other expensive COVID treatments will ever get to them.”

“Ivermectin has an ever-increasing evidence base that shows that it works.”

“Even the prestigious Institute Pasteur in France has confirmed that the evidence is sound.”

Front Line (Flu/Covid) Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) president/chief medical officer Dr. Pierre Kory explained the following:

“When we examine the extensive evidence on ivermectin as a treatment for (flu/covid), we still see a significant reduction in the spread of (the viral illness), as well as a reduction in hospitalizations and deaths.”

“All science needs to be scrutinized. As some of the most published researchers in our fields, we are used to having our work examined by others.”

Africa to Become Testing Ground for “Trust Stamp” Vaccine Record and Payment System, by Raul Diego

Poorer nations have become the testing ground of choice for many new technologies. They’re a particular favorite of the Gates Foundation. From Raul Diego at mintpressnews.com:

A new biometric identity platform partnered with the Gates-funded GAVI vaccine alliance and Mastercard will launch in West Africa and combine COVID-19 vaccinations, cashless payments, and potential law enforcement applications.

A biometric digital identity platform that “evolves just as you evolve” is set to be introduced in “low-income, remote communities” in West Africa thanks to a public-private partnership between the Bill Gates-backed GAVI vaccine alliance, Mastercard and the AI-powered “identity authentication” company, Trust Stamp.

The program, which was first launched in late 2018, will see Trust Stamp’s digital identity platform integrated into the GAVI-Mastercard “Wellness Pass,” a digital vaccination record and identity system that is also linked to Mastercard’s click-to-play system that powered by its AI and machine learning technology called NuData. Mastercard, in addition to professing its commitment to promoting “centralized record keeping of childhood immunization” also describes itself as a leader toward a “World Beyond Cash,” and its partnership with GAVI marks a novel approach towards linking a biometric digital identity system, vaccination records, and a payment system into a single cohesive platform. The effort, since its launch nearly two years ago, has been funded via $3.8 million in GAVI donor funds in addition to a matched donation of the same amount by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

In early June, GAVI reported that Mastercard’s Wellness Pass program would be adapted in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Around a month later, Mastercard announced that Trust Stamp’s biometric identity platform would be integrated into Wellness Pass as Trust Stamp’s system is capable of providing biometric identity in areas of the world lacking internet access or cellular connectivity and also does not require knowledge of an individual’s legal name or identity to function. The Wellness Program involving GAVI, Mastercard, and Trust Stamp will soon be launched in West Africa and will be coupled with a Covid-19 vaccination program once a vaccine becomes available.

Gates Foundation is Also Destroying Africa’s Food Economy, by F. William Engdahl

Saints Bill and Melinda are pushing industrial medicine (vaccines) and industrial farming. From F. William Engdahl at journal-neo.org:

AFR34232

The same Gates Foundation which is behind every aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic from financing much of the WHO budget, to investing in favored vaccine-makers like Moderna, is engaged in a major project in Africa which is destroying traditional small farmer production of essential food crops in favor of monoculture crops and introduction of expensive chemical fertilizers and GMO seeds that are bankrupting small farmers. The project, the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), is directly connected with key global institutions behind the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset.

If we know the actual history of the Rockefeller Foundation and related tax-free undertakings of one of the world’s most influential families, it is clear that in key areas the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has inherited the Rockefeller agenda from the medical industrial complex to education to agriculture transformation.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, working in tandem with the closely allied Rockefeller Foundation, is not only at the center of the orchestration of unheard-of severe economic lockdown measures for the much-disputed COVID-19 illness. The Gates foundation is also at the very center of the UN Agenda 30 push to transform world agriculture into what they call “sustainable” agriculture. A keystone project for the past 14 years has been Gates’ funding of something called the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa or AGRA.

AGRA Fraud on Africa

When the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation founded AGRA in 2006, joined by their close ally, the Rockefeller Foundation, they proclaimed their goal was to “tackle hunger in Africa by working to achieve a food secure and prosperous Africa through the promotion of rapid, sustainable agricultural growth based on smallholder farmers.” AGRA promised to double the agricultural yields and incomes of 30 million small-scale food producer households by 2020.It is now 2020 and it has been a total failure in this regard. Notably,AGRA deleted these goals in June 2020 from its website without  explanation.Based on what they have done we can assume that was never the true goal of Gates and Rockefeller foundations.

Africa’s Socialism Is Keeping It Poor, by Germinal G. Van

Stupid policies don’t discriminate. They lead to tragic outcomes regardless of the race, color, creed, or gender of those who implement them. From Germinal G. Van at mises.org:

It has been widely, vividly, but nonetheless wrongly believed that socialism is the appropriate system to improve the living standards of Africans. Worse yet, it has been misleadingly claimed that socialism is compatible with African culture because African culture is fundamentally a collectivist culture. However, one fact remains undisputable: socialism has failed wherever it was tried, and the African countries that have experimented with socialism were not exempted from its failure.

The undeniable fact remains that Africa has the lowest living standard of all continents after Antarctica. The reason why the living standard of the majority of African countries is so low compared to the rest of the world, is because socialism has impoverished the African continent. At the outset of the post-colonial era in the 1960s many African countries — such as Tanzania, Angola, Mali, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique, Egypt, Senegal, Guinea, Congo and many more — have embraced socialism as their economic and political system. These countries that have embraced socialism became significantly worse off by the 1980s. For example, Tanzania was one of the fast-growing economies in East Africa until Julius Nyerere implemented the “Ujamaa,” which means socialism and brotherhood in the Swahili language. Before the implementation of the Ujamaa; Tanzania had aGDP similar to South Korea . Subsequently to the implementation of Ujamaa, economic growth became unsurprisingly stagnant. The policy of collectivization impoverished the Tanzanian people. Food production fell, and the country’s economy suffered . This decline in productivity has made Tanzania one of the poorest countries on the continent. In Ghana, under the rule of Kwame Nkrumah, one of the foremost African political leaders of the post-colonial era; socialism was also implemented as the economic system of the country. Socialism, as a domestic policy in Nkrumah’s seven-year development plan, was to be pursued toward “a complete ownership of the economy by the state.” A bewildering slate of legislative controls and regulations were imposed on imports, capital transfers, industry, minimum wages, the rights and powers of trade unions, prices, rents and interest rates. Private businesses were taken away and nationalized by the Nkrumah government. The result has also been unsurprising. Resources were mismanaged, inflation rose, and economic stagnation occurred in Ghana. Zimbabwe has also suffered from the myths of African socialism under Mugabe’s rule. Mugabe collectivized the means of production in the late 1980s when he became Zimbabwe’s strongman. Rampant corruption, huge budget deficits, and mismanagement of resources have dragged the economy, hyperinflation, 60 percent unemployment, and a desperate shortage of hard currency. These examples clearly demonstrate how socialism had utterly stagnated the economies of these countries until a market economy was once again reinstated.

Oil, Military And Nuclear Tech: Russia’s Influence In Africa, by Vanand Meliksetian

Russia, China, and the US are scrambling to secure Africa’s resources. From Vanand Meliksetian at oilprice.com:

Virtually all great powers have set their eyes on Africa as the continent’s global importance grows. Its population is set to double by 2050 and its economy is expected to expand significantly alongside its energy consumption. It is these projections that have driven Russia to invest heavily in strong relations in the region for when the continent’s explosive growth takes off. The Kremlin’s goal is to emulate China’s success in fostering economic, diplomatic, and military links with Africa. To become an important partner, Moscow is organizing the first-ever Russia-Africa summit on 23-24 October.

Sochi, Russia’s de facto capital after Moscow, will host the summit where Egypt’s President Sisi is invited as co-chair. The event is a major test for Russia’s corps diplomatique and the country’s rise as a global power. To showcase the ineffectiveness of Western sanctions and their failure in isolating Moscow, 50 heads of state are invited to the summit.

Bad Law Keeps People Poor, by John Stossel

It’s amazing how few people ever ascribe pervasive poverty to bad laws, which produce bad governments and corruption. From John Stossel at townhall.com:

Why does most of Africa stay poor while other parts of the world prosper?

People blame things like climate, the history of colonialism, racism, etc.

But I say Senegalese businesswoman Magatte Wade gives the right explanation: too many rules.

“Once you hire someone, good luck getting rid of them for any reason,” Wade complains. Her government must approve every firing.

“Then the tax code is so complicated… worth at least two or three truckloads of paper.”

Wade started a lip balm company. Some of her ingredients are not made in Senegal, so she imports them. To “protect” Senegalese manufacturers, the government makes importing ingredients expensive.

“Some have a 70% import tariff on them!” she says.

President Donald Trump now threatens similar taxes on imports from China. In Africa, people sometimes escape such taxes by paying bribes. We hear a lot about African corruption.

“People complain about corruption as if corruption is a root problem,” says Wade. “I say no. Corruption is a natural consequence of stupid, senseless, idiot laws.”
