Two Control Freaks

One: Via Juliette Tworsey on Facebook, WHO boss Margaret Chan wants to drive tobacco companies out of business:

Abu Dhabi (AFP) – World Health Organization chief Margaret Chan urged global action Wednesday to drive tobacco companies “out of business” and hailed progress in tackling smoking in many countries.

Speaking at the World Conference on Tobacco or Health in Abu Dhabi, she welcomed steps taken by several countries, led by Australia, to introduce plain packaging for cigarettes.

The WHO chief called for similar action by other nations.

Tobacco companies “use all sorts of tactics including funding political parties, individual politicians to work for them… There is nothing they would not exploit to undermine the governments’ resolve and determination to protect their own people,” Chan told reporters.

“It’s going to be a tough fight… (but) we should not give up until we make sure that the tobacco industry goes out of business,” she said.

Edouard Tursan d’Espaignet, the WHO coordinator of comprehensive information systems for tobacco control, said the industry “has lobbies, has very strong powerful friends, and these people can interfere in the right working of the government.

“That’s why we’re here to defy and eradicate it,” he told AFP.

Two: I used to think quite well of Bill Gates. Not since he teamed up with Tobacco Control, however. He’s also big on population control, it seems:

(Humans Are Free) He was a seemingly nice guy in the first half of his life. An average American who made his fortune by selling hardware and software worth of billions, becoming an worldwide icon and a living example of the American Dream.

But in the second half of his life, he teamed up with the world’s “elite” in an attempt to reduce the world’s population by billions… and he meant business!

He soon became one of the most infamous depopulation activist, lecturing on genocidal vaccines, conducting vaccination campaigns that crippled and killed countless people in the third world countries, designing GMO mosquitoes that could carry and inject deadly viruses, and he’s constantly finding new methods of achieving his sick plans.

I am, of course, talking about Bill Gates, the man who recently pushed the population control agenda one step further: he announced the development of a remote-controlled contraceptive microchip, which can be implanted under the skin and last up to 16 years.

Control, control, control. Ban, ban, ban.

    Considering that neither are elected by people of any nation they wield a lot of clout, I hope one day someone figures out how to stop them.

    we should not give up

    Strange wording wouldn’t you say it holds strong feeling they’ve already given up or lost so much support she knows more than she is saying………

      Treasury could lose money from NOLA smoking ban

      http://www.thetowntalk.com/story/news/local/2015/03/20/treasury-lose-money-nola-smoking-ban/25103327/

      BATON ROUGE – State lawmakers Friday delayed approval of a $3.6 million casino support services contract for New Orleans amid concerns the city’s new smoking ban will hit the state treasury.

      The prohibition against smoking in bars and gambling halls takes effect in late April, after winning approval from the city council and Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

      The gambling industry, which sought to stop the ban, said it will hurt business. Louisiana collects fees from the Harrah’s casino, a horse racing track and video-poker halls in New Orleans. If revenue at the gambling locations falls, the state also will collect less.

      “There’s going to be a fall-off in attendance at the casinos … There’s going to be less money available to the state of Louisiana,” Ronnie Jones, chairman of the Louisiana Gaming Control Board, told the Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget.

      The Louisiana State Police, which oversees gambling enforcement, estimates the state could lose $17.4 million over two years in gambling revenue — a 20 percent drop in collections — because of the smoking ban.

      “That’s a big hit,” said Rep. Roy Burrell, D-Shreveport.

      Lawmakers questioned the data, saying some of the gamblers might move to casinos in neighboring parishes, which could lessen the cost to the state treasury of the smoking ban. Rep. Walt Leger, D-New Orleans, said the state police data was extrapolated from studies in other states, not an economic analysis of Louisiana’s gambling environment.

      “There are certainly other casinos where people can go if they want to smoke at them,” Leger said.

      Awaiting further economic analysis, lawmakers held up a vote on the state’s annual $3.6 million contract with the city of New Orleans to pay the costs of police, fire and sanitation services at Harrah’s casino for the fiscal year that begins July 1.

      Committee members asked legislative economist Greg Albrecht to study the possible state revenue losses and their impact on the state.

      Albrecht said he expects some loss to the state, but he wouldn’t estimate as high as 20 percent. He said he’ll provide scenarios of what the revenue dip could look like before the April budget committee hearing, when lawmakers will revisit the casino support services contract.

    I’ll go along with Chan as Dragon Lady and Gates as a control freak of the Bloomberg (“I must be smart because I’m so rich”) School, but the implications of an Evil Conspiracy to attain population control through mass murder goes way over the line into la-la paranoia. Not sure why he latched onto anti-smoking with such zeal, but I think these people just see smoking as, and only as , a Health Problem– something like a virus to be eradicated to the great benefit of mankind with everyone delighted to see it go. They refuse to take into account that, unlike, say the Ebola virus, billions find pleasure and succor in tobacco and that attempting to eradicate pleasure and succor is not delightful, not without cost and may, in fact, be doomed.

    • Frank Davis says:

      I wish you were right about this, but I don’t think you are. I think that the claim that smoking is just a “health problem” is only a mask that they like to wear, because it makes them seem benign and well-meaning.

      The reality, I believe, is that they quite simply hate smoking (and by extension, smokers). That’s where they begin, and everything else is a rationalisation of that hatred. If nothing else, the hatred can be seen in the laws they make, which are invariably designed to hurt smokers in one way or other. The hatred is also highly visible in the Wall of Hate compiled by MJM. And it was a hatred that was present in the very first antismoker that I ever encountered: the Dr W, in whose home I once lived, and who denounced smoking as a “filthy, filthy, filthy” habit.

      I don’t really know why they hate smoking. But I also don’t really know why some people hate Jews, Blacks, homosexuals, Catholics, etc, etc, etc. I think they’re all irrational hatreds, which just seem to catch on from time to time, much like ‘flu.

      As for population control, it increasingly looks to me like just another form of Control being pursued by a another bunch of control freaks. And in fact by the same bunch of control freaks. It’s another example of wanting to take control of what other people do, and stop them doing it, whatever it is.

      • jltrader says:

        Speaking of how it isn’t at all about health but hate and spite: just saw a movie from 1980 and people were smoking in the hallways of a hospital, and the rubbish bins had ashtrays on top of them. Fast forward 30 years and quoting from a picture I saw in DailyMail ‘Western Sussex Hospitals – Welcome to St Richard’s Hospital – Smoking is banned in all buildings, grounds & vehicles’. why would any sane person ban smoking outside or in a visitor’s own vehicle ?!

    At the epicentre of the current Ebola epidemic is the Kenema Government Hospital in Sierra Leone, which houses a US a biosecurity level 2 bioweapons research lab with links to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Soros Foundation.

    http://12160.info/forum/topics/ebola-outbreak-connected-to-bill-melinda-gates-foundation-and

    The featured article also highlights the many obvious conflicts of interest plaguing the Gates Foundation and its founder. As already mentioned, the Gates Foundation has partnered with Monsanto—a company that seeks to replace sustainable agricultural practices with its own patented genetically engineered seeds, which must be re-purchased each planting season.

    The global agricultural “charity” work performed by these two is far from charitable; rather the end result will be a monopoly of the food supply and entire nations, as they effectively strip poor nations of their food sovereignty.

    Another partner is GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)—the same company that just plead guilty in the largest health fraud case in US history. Through their partnership with the Gates Foundation, GSK “centrally controls enormous world funds for purchase, pricing, and delivery of vaccines for world public health,” the featured article states3.

    Both the Foundation and Bill Gates also own stock and profit financially from their partner corporations. For example, in the second quarter of 2010, the Gates Foundation purchased 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock with an estimated worth of $23.1 million—a decision that met with heavy criticism once it leaked out.

    To advance its anti-smoking campaign, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has launched a social media campaign in China to raise public awareness, especially aiming to empower non-smokers.

    The song, “Say No to Forced Smoking,” which had the same name as the campaign, was unveiled Wednesday in Beijing and the music video will be uploaded to several Chinese video-streaming websites.

    All that money seems to induce an acute case of megalomania. Gates, Bloomberg, Soros. They’re all at it.

    Heaven help us.

  6. margo says:

    Bill Gates is anti-tobacco, because he thinks it kills people? AND he wants to reduce the human population? That doesn’t seem to add up, does it?

    • sam says:

      No. He knows it doesn’t kill people. His close relationship with the same chemical and pharmaceutical companies that hold multiple patents on tobacco derived drugs (in development) should answer that question.

    • Joe L. says:

      Under the guise of “philanthropy” and “humanitarianism,” it seems quite the contradiction. However, when placed in the context of the true goal, eugenics, it makes perfect sense.

    • jaxthefirst says:

      You beat me to it, Margo!

      I’ve disliked Gates ever since he “came out” as a Tobacco Control activist. However, his being an anti-smoker doesn’t quite square with his being a population control one, too. For surely, if he believes that smoking is such a dangerous, life-shortening activity, he’d be all in favour of it as one of the most useful tools in killing people off.

      Unless, of course, he knows something that the rest of us aren’t allowed to know (although, with the passage of time, more and more people are starting to think “Hmmmm …” – but I digress). Like, for example, the fact that, far from shortening life, smoking actually lengthens it. Sort of along the lines of “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

      My never-smoker OH has always maintained that this is the true agenda behind the anti-smoking movement, although many of those personally involved in persecuting smokers don’t know it (as per my last comment re Arnott’s lying-without-knowing-it mindset) and genuinely believe all the rhetoric, and don’t realise that the real puppetmasters behind The Movement have vastly different reasons for getting them to do their dirty work than the ones they have artificially presented as the “real” reasons.

      When my OH first mentioned this theory to me, even I thought it was unlikely, but as time has gone by, and with increasing numbers of non-smokers dropping like flies with so-called “smoking related” illnesses, despite ever-diminishing opportunities for them to encounter even the tiniest amount of ETS, I have to say I’ve started to think that maybe there’s a lot of truth to the idea. It would certainly explain the apparent contradiction between Gates’s anti-smoking stance and his population control one.

    “I am, of course, talking about Bill Gates, the man who recently pushed the population control agenda one step further: he announced the development of a remote-controlled contraceptive microchip, which can be implanted under the skin and last up to 16 years.”

    Don’t worry about that – it will crash every 10 minutes.

  8. Smoking Scot says:

    Bill Gates children:

    1) Jennifer

    2) Rory

    3) Pheobe

    Population control means to not exceed replacement and the maximum any couple should have is two. So there’s one rule for William Henry and another for the rest of us. So says Will and Melinda.

    I believe an apt description might be “hypocrite”.

    • sam says:

      They go beyond hypocrisy. These people are elitists. They truly believe that they are better than you and I and uniquely qualified to rule over the people and resources on this planet. If you look at it this way, their actions and their lies make perfect sense and are consistent. The rules they want for the masses are always of the “For thee but not for me.” variety. Whenever that is the case, you know that what they are pushing as a reason is a lie. As a fly on the wall (from my days as a caterer) I can tell you for a fact that these types of people (wealthy corporate heads and the career lobbyists, and politicians who work for them) hold their pows wows pushing various no meat, smoking, sugar, fuel consumption agendas over steak dinners and rich sugary creamy deserts followed by the smoking of expensive premium cigars, and then depart as they arrived in luxurious gas guzzling vehicles. Perhaps some of them are religious like zealots who actually believe their own nonsense about meat and smoking but it seems to me that most of them are just greedy lying elitists who know that the only way to keep their ridiculously luxurious lifestyles is to control, manipulate, and regulate the rest of us an extreme degree. That’s not a conspiracy theory. It’s just a rather obvious and logical observation of the most likely scenario.

    I think it’s most annoying when someone you enjoyed and supported as say, a singer, suddenly gets delusions of grandeur and starts preaching at you.

    I am not interested in the views of an entertainer on matters that have recently become fashionable, I am interested in the views of people who have spent their lives studying the matter and can put the subject across in an informative and unbiased way.

  10. Theres something about Gates we all miss and its no defense for him by me at all.

    But back about 1996 Gates was being shook down by the left very hard and likely being threatened with all sorts of things since becoming so rich. It was during that time to quell the leftists he started a fund for African Children of believe it was 200 million dollars. This quelled the uprising on him for awhile until they came back after more and more………..

    But it seems they not only never left him alone but somehow created a monster making him the go to guy to get all the worlds billionaires to donate their fortunes to you guessed it the same charities and lobbying groups pushing prohibition and healthism………..

    The same thing went down back in 1900 with Carnegie,Rockefellor and all the rest even the Big pharmaceutical millionaires like the WELLMAN GROUP of today and they even keep a prohibitionists museum from back then in England. They also run the world genetics computer that all the activist scientists can use to create so called science against smoking or whatever you want to call it. No doubt that was used to make claims of grand children suffering asthma in grand daughters 2 generations out……….basically a eugenics program to persue the crap as before an call it science.

  11. Investigators Believe ‘Cyanide’ Letter to White House Actually Contained Smoker’s Spit

    Posted on March 20, 2015
    by ABC Digital

    nikkytok/iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — The letter sent to the White House on Monday that raised suspicion of possible cyanide turned out to be pretty innocuous — unless you’re a smoker.

    The piece of mail — containing a plastic bag and a suspicious liquid — was initially received at the offsite White House Mail Screening Center. It was tested offsite and initial results were negative, but another test on Tuesday that the envelope might contain cyanide, prompting additional tests.

    The final results are in, and officials say the liquid in the plastic bag was saliva. The saliva did contain trace amounts of cyanide, which investigators think has a simple source.

    The man who they believe sent the envelope, a Chicago-area homeless man, smokes excessively. Smoking cigarettes, investigators say, can produce trace amounts of the poisonous chemical in the saliva.

    “Smoking cigarettes is probably one of the major sources of cyanide exposure for people who do not work in cyanide-related industries,” the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

    It is unclear whether charges would be brought against the suspected sender.
