Just when you thought it couldn't get worse for WHO, it has. Perhaps they looked at the amount of money Bill Gates was slinging around at vaccines over the next ten years, and thought..."Well, if he gets that much from selling computers, then think how much we can rake off people who USE his computers, however they use them!!?!!" Voila. Brilliant... What an idea. Let's tax every email, all internet use, etc, as described neatly, by James Corbett at Global Research.
Two days later, a member of the WHO committee dropped a bombshell to Fox news, saying that the whole deal was pushed onto WHO by Big Pharma.
"A member of a World Health Organization (WHO) panel of experts that is pondering new global taxes on e-mails, alcohol, tobacco, airline travel and consumer bank transactions, has charged that she was given only selective information at group meetings, that deliberations were rushed and that group was "manipulated" by the international pharmaceuticals industry."
As reported by Fox News, these taxes include:
not only indirect consumer taxes but also greater donations by wealthy governments as a percentage of gross domestic product, voluntary individual payments tied to such things as individual mobile phone use, health care lotteries, new commitments from charitable and philanthropic organizations, and the possible diversion of current philanthropic giving from developed-world causes into developing world health care.
..... The Internet or "digital" tax offered up as an example by the EWG would amount to 1 cent per 100 emails, yielding a conservative $3 billion a year. It "might be appealing to politicians and consumers, who will accept a low tax across a broad base with an altruistic purpose." But almost in the same breath, the document observes a complication, that "introducing a new tax or expanding an existing tax may require legal changes, nationally and internationally, and ongoing regulation to ensure compliance."
Getting mobile phone users to sign up for a voluntary medical fee per call could yield anywhere from $280 million to $1.8 billion, depending on the tax bite and the consumer enthusiasm for the idea, while a voluntary fee tied to airline ticket purchase, the document says, could raise nearly $1 billion.
The report estimates WHO would raise $7.4 billion a year if donor nations hiked their percentage of GNP targeted on the new health care model. But the report still holds out hope for substantially more money if "donors diverted current financial support" from medical research that meets their own current requirements to WHO's agenda.
Wow. Amazing actually.
WHO has strenously denied all allegations. Naturally. I mean, what else could they do?! They are truly between a rock and a hard place.
Having just been accused by Dr Wolfgang Wodarg from the Council of Europe of being in cahoots with Big Pharma and being forced to attend a meeting to explain themselves for changing their definition of "pandemic" to suit Big Pharmas needs, needless to say, WHO are now hyperventilating.
You can absolutely guarantee that unauthorised disclosures by one of their own will continue to be vigorously defended, for the same reasons why Dr Andrew Wakefield has been found guilty. Absolutely nothing can ever been seen to taint the vaccine industry, or drug research industry, because that would mean that every man, woman and grandparent would look sideways at not just their doctor, but Big Pharma and Who.
At all costs, the last thing the WHO needs is a WHO equivalent of the sleazy goings on in UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's serial blunders of Glaciergate, tempgate, icegate and Amazongate.
The only "gates" that the medical profession will ever admit to, are the ones which don't have universal implications - little things which can be isolated to systems' error, or accidental manufacturing defects.
It's amazing that somehow, the majority of the world has this view that the medical profession is far too altruistic to feather their own nests, reputations and CVs.
Just remember. Vaccine reactions are always coincidental, and the WHO has no vested interests, and is never pressurised by Big Pharma. Remember that, and everything will be sweet, eh?!
