Bud Light, America’s former #1 selling beer, has fallen after the company went woke. So why then would billionaire Bill Gates purchase 1.7 million shares worth around $95 million in parent company Anheuser-Busch? Through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust, the fake philanthropist is purchasing numerous shares of alcoholic beverages. He also bought a 3.76% stake in Heineken Holding NV or 10.8 million shares worth $939.87 million at the time.
What was considered essential during the pandemic? Alcohol. Liquor stores were permitted to remain open throughout the entire pandemic to quiet the masses. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reported that a quarter of people began drinking more than usual during the dark days of the pandemic, and alcohol sales jumped 3%. We know from countless other studies that mental health issues skyrocketed at this time, and the NIH stated that many began drinking more as a coping mechanism. The same phenomenon happened in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when alcohol sales went through the roof, and years earlier, the alcohol industry profited off the back off the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a glass of scotch from time to time. However, one must wonder why every health organization and government deemed alcohol, a known carcinogen, an essential during the pandemic. The CIA once studied how to “promote the intoxicating effects of alcohol” during the MKUltra studies. Of course, the disturbed researchers also laced the alcohol with other drugs, but they found alcohol could “enhance the ability of individuals to withstand privation, torture and coercion.”
Panic sells alcohol. People were less likely to take to the streets when they were home, numb to their existence. If there were another lockdown due to the climate or a virus, alcohol would still be deemed an essential service that all must be able to access. Bill Gates is preparing to profit off of our suffering in every way possible.
