Bill Gates — who illegally invests in the same industries he gives charitable donations to, and who promotes a global public health agenda that benefits the companies he’s invested in — has gone on record saying life will not go back to normal until we have the ability to vaccinate the entire global population against COVID-19.1
To that end, he is pushing for disease surveillance and a vaccine tracking system2 that might involve embedding vaccination records on our bodies. One example of how this might be done is using an invisible ink quantum dot tattoo, described in a December 18, 2019, Science Translational Medicine paper.3,4
According to statements made by Gates, societal and financial normalcy may never return to those who refuse vaccination, as the digital vaccination certificate Gates is pushing for might ultimately be required to go about your day-to-day life and business. Without this “digital immunity proof,” you may not even be allowed to travel locally or visit certain public buildings.
Gates has a history of “predicting” global pandemics with vast numbers of deaths,5 and with his call for a tracking system to keep tabs on infected/noninfected and vaccinated/unvaccinated individuals, he’s ensuring an unimaginably profitable future for the vaccine makers he supports and makes money from via his Foundation investments.
Along with Gates, The Rockefeller Foundation is also coordinating efforts in the direction of social control through the implementation of draconian COVID-19 tracking and tracing measures that are clearly meant to become permanent.
National COVID-19 Testing Action Plan
April 21, 2020, The Rockefeller Foundation released a white paper6 titled, “National COVID-19 Testing Action Plan — Strategic Steps to Reopen Our Workplaces and Our Communities.” In the foreword, Rockefeller Foundation president Dr. Rajiv J. Shah writes:
“In the face of an ineffective nationally-coordinated response, insufficient data, and inadequate amounts of protective gear and testing, we need an exit plan. Testing is our way out of this crisis.
Instead of ricocheting between an unsustainable shutdown and a dangerous, uncertain return to normalcy, the United States must mount a sustainable strategy with better tests and contact tracing, and stay the course for as long as it takes to develop a vaccine or cure.
Any plan to do so must win the faith of private and public sector leaders across the country, and of individual Americans that they and their loved ones will be safer when we begin to return to daily life.
The Rockefeller Foundation exists to meet moments like this. In the past two weeks we have brought together experts and leaders from science, industry, academia, public policy, and government — across sectors and political ideologies — to create a clear, pragmatic, data-driven, actionable plan to beat back Covid-19 and get Americans back to work more safely.”
The plan calls for testing and tracing 1 million Americans per week to start, incrementally ramping it up to 3 million and then 30 million per week (the “1-3-30 plan”) over the next six months until the entire population has been covered.
Test results would then be collected on a digital platform capable of tracking all tested individuals so that contact-tracing can be performed when someone tests positive. According to the “National COVID-19 Testing Action Plan”:
“Policy makers and the public must find the balance between privacy concerns and infection control to allow the infection status of most Americans to be accessed and validated in a few required settings and many voluntary ones.”
To this end, they suggest using incentives “to nudge the voluntary use” of tracking and contact tracing apps rather than making them mandatory. They also call for the use of “innovative digital technologies” aimed at improving “workforce monitoring and early detection of recurrent outbreaks.”
“When integrated into national and state surveillance systems, such innovations may enable the same level of outbreak detection with fewer tests.
Promising techniques include anonymous digital tracking of workforces or population-based resting heart-rate and smart thermometer trends; continually updated epidemiological data modeling; and artificial intelligence projections based on clinical and imaging data,” the document states.7
Modern ‘Wartime’ Effort That Will Cost Billions
According to the “National COVID-19 Testing Action Plan”:8
“Monitoring the pandemic and adjusting social distancing measures will require launching the largest public health testing program in American history … The effort will ultimately grow to billions of dollars per month … But with widespread business closures costing the country $350 billion to $400 billion each month, the expense will be worth it.
This testing infrastructure is intended to tide the country over until a vaccine or therapy is widely available.
Coordination of such a massive program should be treated as a wartime effort, with a public/private bipartisan Pandemic Testing Board established to assist and serve as a bridge between local, state, and federal officials with the logistical, investment and political challenges this operation will inevitably face.”
Don’t Be Naïve About Infectious Tracking Plan
Call me jaded, but this sounds like a plan to surveil Americans so that they can easily be tracked down for mandatory vaccination once a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available. It also creates the necessary infrastructure for vaccination tracking across the board, for all vaccines.
While they give lip-service to privacy and anonymization of data, privacy promises have been repeatedly broken in the past. Besides, the document clearly states that:9
“Some privacy concerns must be set aside for an infectious agent as virulent as Covid-19, allowing the infection status of most Americans to be accessed and validated in a few required settings and many voluntary ones.
The loss of privacy engendered by such a system would come at too high of a price if the arrival of a vaccine early next year was a certainty. But vaccine development and manufacture could take years, and when it comes certain populations may be excluded from receiving it for health reasons.
In the meantime, infection status must be known for people to participate in many societal functions. Legislation protecting people from being fired over infection status must be passed.
Those screened must be given a unique patient identification number that would link to information about a patient’s viral, antibody and eventually vaccine status under a system that could easily handshake with other systems to speed the return of normal societal functions.
Schools could link this to attendance lists, large office buildings to employee ID cards, TSA to passenger lists and concert and sports venues to ticket purchasers. Such connections should be made in a way that protects personally identifying information whenever possible … Whenever and wherever possible data should be open.”
Are You Ready to Give Up EVERYTHING Over a Virus?
“Privacy concerns must be set aside.” Infection status must be “accessed and validated in a few required settings.”
Infection status will be linked to schools, office buildings, places of work, airports, concert and sport venues — in other words, most areas people need or want to frequent, if not daily, then at least occasionally. Infection status must be known “for people to participate in societal functions.” Legislation must be passed to protect people from being fired from their jobs based on their infection status. Are you concerned yet?
Anyone who remembers the tactics employed in Nazi Germany, or anyone familiar with the current surveillance of the Chinese population, will realize where this is headed.
Reading through the plan, it should also be crystal clear that this tracking and surveillance program is not designed to be temporary. You can be strongly assured this will be permanent. It calls for hundreds of thousands of new employees, updating computer systems and new laws that in many ways resemble the implementation of TSA post-9/11.
Not addressed in this report is the question of just how often would you have to undergo testing. A negative test today may not be valid tomorrow, if you happen to come across someone who is infected between now and then. Would you have to undergo testing every single day? Once a week?
If regular retesting is not part of the plan, then the whole system is worthless as your infection status could change at any time.
Other questions not addressed: If you happen to be in the vicinity of someone who tests positive in the near future, would you have to quarantine for two weeks? Will your employer pay for that time off? Will you have a job when you come out of quarantine?
What if you quarantine for two weeks but don’t get sick and test negative for antibodies, then go out and happen across yet another person who ends up testing positive shortly thereafter. Will you be forced into quarantine again? Where does it end?
The tracking system The Rockefeller Foundation is calling for is eerily similar to that already being used in China, where residents are required to enroll in a health condition registry. Once enrolled, they get a personal QR code, which they must then enter in order to gain access to grocery stores and other facilities.10
The plan also demands access to other medical data. According to the “National COVID-19 Testing Action Plan”:11
“This infection database must easily interoperate with doctor, hospital and insurance health records in an essential and urgent national program to finally rationalize the disparate and sometimes deliberately isolated electronic medical records systems across the country …
Unfortunately, obtaining the necessary clinical data to bring these powerful analytic tools to bear has been difficult due to information-blocking tactics of electronic health records (EHR) vendors. Among the longtime tactics used by such vendors has been charging unreasonable fees for data access, requiring providers to sign restrictive contracts, and claiming patients’ clinical data is proprietary.
On March 9, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released two long-awaited final rules that would prohibit information blocking in health care and advance more seamless exchange of health care data. But publication in the Federal Register, necessary to activate the rules, has been inexplicably delayed. This delay must end.”
In other words, this plan is far more comprehensive than merely tracking COVID-19 cases. It’s designed to replace the current system of “disparate and sometimes deliberately isolated electronic medical records systems across the country.”
While The Rockefeller Foundation’s white paper simply calls for the use of a digital “patient identification number” without indicating exactly how you would carry this ID number on your person, Gates has repeatedly talked about the “need” for some sort of implantable vaccine certificate.
In 1999, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation donated $750 million to set up Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance.12 Gavi, in turn, has partnered with the ID2020 Alliance, along with the Bangladeshi government, to launch a digital identity program called ID2020.13
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation also funded the GSMA Inclusive Tech Lab, launched in 2019, the aim of which is to promote access to digital and biometric identity services and systems.14,15
ID2020, which also launched in 2019, is designed to “leverage immunization as an opportunity to establish digital identity.” This digital identity system is said to carry “far-reaching implications for individuals’ access to services and livelihoods,” so to think that Gates’ call for implantable COVID-19 vaccine certificates would be limited to that alone would again be a grave mistake.
Like The Rockefeller Foundation, Gates is not presenting short-term, temporary measures. They’re both aiming to implement a totalitarian control system. It’s not so far-fetched to imagine a future in which your vaccine certificate or “unique patient ID number” replaces personal identifications such as your driver’s license, state ID card, Social Security card and passport, and is tied not only to your medical records in total, but also your finances.
I remain confident that it would be a tragic mistake to trust Gates, Rockefeller, Google or any of the other players that are being brought before us as the saviors of the day. While most people are well-acquainted with the Rockefeller name, few probably know the true history of the Rockefellers’ rise to power. If you fall in this category, be sure to read “How the Oil Industry Conquered Medicine, Finance and Agriculture,” which features an excellent video report by James Corbett.
Those who are ignorant of history are bound to repeat it, and if the Rockefeller story tells us anything, it is that unless we realize what has been done, we’ll be deceived again and again, because the oil oligarchy’s end game is yet to be realized — if we let them.

Matt Smith is a corporate office refugee who made a decision to take on the world of online advertising by the horns. He’s now the proud founder of Snapvertising – where he’s constantly teaching and pulling the curtain on Snapchat advertising secrets, tactics and leveraging on a fairly “untouched” traffic source. Traveling all over the globe with his wife and daughter, we were recently able to catch up with Matt in Madrid for a short interview on how to leverage on the most stable platform today and generate consistent cash flow with ease.
On your website, you’ve mentioned your transformation from “a ‘sad’ corporate office worker to enjoying the stability of running ads on a virgin platform.” Where did you get started?
Yeah, what they call ‘The hero’s journey’ is what we need to talk about. I started off in a traditional 8-5 corporate job, and I had a baby like two years ago, and I kickstarted a lot of stuff and thinking more about where I want to be 40 years from now, how do I want my daughter to remember me, and how do I want to structure our family. Both my parents worked really hard and I didn’t get to see them a lot, to be honest.
I was working at a Human Resources type of role, really boring and not a lot of creative freedom to do what I wanted. I started seeing people with internet money and internet marketing and I was like “what is that?”.
People I saw on the beach, or something, typing away with their computer but are able to make money, and I just wrote it off as a scam, people out there are just scamming people, and that’s not for me. I’m the hard worker… and I just decided like what do I have to lose, you know? I don’t want to be in my office job for the next 30 or 40 years. I want more freedom to travel; I want more freedom to be with my daughter and for my wife to be with our daughter. I started listening and reading everything I could, watching YouTube videos, talking to friends I knew were doing this. I tried to absorb as much as I could. I’m a true sponge and that’s what made me successful. It just slowly led from Facebook to now Snapchat.
If you could put this in a time-frame, how long since you quit your job to where you are now?
It’s been like a year and a half, a year and 10 months since I quit, so I’m fairly new in this industry.
I would say it took me like a month where I was at my job and a month after I started looking for all this stuff. I made $1200 in one day while I was working on this UK funeral insurance lead generation campaign on Facebook and I was like “holy crap!”. It was an amazing feeling. All the stress went away, and I was like “oh, I can make a living doing this.” I could kind of see the new direction I’m going to be taking my life and it snowballed since then.
Why Snapchat to begin with?
Snapchat seemed the most similar to what I was doing on Facebook. They’re both social channels, both channels are in between people communicating with friends or trying to catch up with friends and just be social. I feel like my experience fit well with that.
I’m good at creating short videos and grabbing attention right away and grabbing attention away from pictures of friends out at a party or pictures of babies, you know? Whatever’s on your Facebook or Snapchat feed. I just look at them as very similar. They are similar, but there are a few differences.
There is somewhat of a learning curve with Snapchat. You can’t take the same ads on Facebook and make them successful on Snapchat. That is one reason. The second reason I would say was that I see the ‘writing on the wall’ with Facebook. It took me a little bit, but I saw where affiliate marketing was not going to be growing as much on Facebook as I feel like it would be growing on Snapchat. Snapchat is a newer platform with fewer regulations, and they really need money at this point. They want affiliate marketers’ money.
How long do you think Snapchat will remain a marketing “goldmine”? What happens when the competition grows?
Yeah, well then, it’s time to pack my bags and find the next one, right?
I mean, it could happen, and I still think that Snapchat is in its early years, circa Facebook in 2012 and 2014, and I think there is a lot of room for more users to join Snapchat. I think there are going to be plenty of eyeballs for advertisers to reach in the near future.
But, that’s a valid point. This is how networks tend to go. They accept a lot of the smaller guys and there’s a lot of easy money to be made by cheap traffic basically. As time goes on, they tighten up their controls and push some of the smarter guys out and the big players eat everybody up. I still think there’s, at the very least, a year and a half of real solid money to be made with Snapchat. I think that it’s so new and there’s so much room to grow. It’s such a new platform.
Are there any misconceptions about running ads on Snapchat nowadays?
I hear about all these misconceptions as I’m starting to teach more about Snapchat and speak about it. I try to remember what my misconceptions were because I had heard about Snapchat years ago and I didn’t go on it because I was like “that’s only teenagers and they don’t have any money and they’re not going to be applicable to my offers.” I found the complete opposite. I’m targeting people ages 25+ – 35+ and there are so many older people joining Snapchat that it’s just not a fair comparison anymore.
Another misconception that I get a lot is that people don’t convert, or they don’t buy. I don’t think people have realized how much Snapchat has really improved their pixel, their targeting, and their overall ad tools. Their ad platform has grown so much more to be like Facebook, AdWords and these more advanced platforms. Those are two big misconceptions. I guess I have heard about it costs so much and it’s expensive and that’s the falsest statement I’ve ever heard. I’ve never been on a platform that brings a better bang for your buck. CPMs right now for me is like $2 to $3 and I’m running one campaign in a country where it costs 90 cents for a CPM to reach a thousand people basically. It’s really just one of the cheapest platforms you can get on and the people that are on there are engaged and they really enjoy the platform. There’s a core group of Snapchatters that that’s their home, their base and it’s so cheap to get in that home right now. I don’t know why more people aren’t’ taking advantage of it.
Tell us about your Snapvertising training course. Where can people find it?
The course is a combination of everything that I’ve used to make over $400,000 on the platform in the past. It’s just for people that really want the most premium information they can get on Snapchat.
I’d say the easiest way to get initiative if you’re not familiar with Snapchat is not to get the course right away. Go over to our Snapvertising group on Facebook. Just a free group that we run with a lot of free information and a great community of Snapchat media buyers. If you do want to get the course and you’re ready to learn the targeting and the bidding I use and all that, go to snapvertising.io. I’ve had a great response from it so far, and it felt great. There are so many people that are benefiting from it right now.
What do you think the trends are for 2019?
I’m not an oracle by any means. I’m a marketer. I give people what they want. I react to the marketplace and trying to place ads and use whatever system is good for me right now. I don’t try to look too much in the future. But if I did, I really do think that Facebook is going to continue to contract and I feel like advertising on there is going to become more and more difficult for affiliate marketers.
It’s going to be a constant cat-and-mouse game where they try to police more advertisers and make them tougher and shut down more accounts. And it’s just going to become more frustrating. I really think that’s going to drive a lot of people in our sub-side of affiliate marketers and e-commerce to other platforms like Snapchat and Quora and Pinterest. These kind of mid-tier ones right now are going to continue to grow. I really think the golden age of Facebook advertising is passing right now and I wouldn’t be surprised to see some of these big tech companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter to be broken up in the future and be more regulated heavily.
What is the best tip or tactic you would give marketers in general?
I would say, try to be creative.
We can always get better at the media-buying and data and stuff and machines are going to help a lot with that in the future, but if you can always be thinking of new angles, go left where everyone else is going right, that’s going to give you a huge advantage. It’s something that I’ve used throughout my short career to be successful.
And what is the biggest mistake they should avoid?
I think the biggest mistake is to follow blind tips of like “this is a hot offer…” and I’m just going to copy someone else creative and run basically. I think that is a huge mistake!
I also think there are a lot of mistakes within Snapchat where people take the creative that has worked on Facebook or that they have seen on Facebook, Google and these other networks and try to put them into Snapchat; they’re going to lose money doing it that way. People aren’t going to wipe up; it’s not going to connect with Snappers. It’s a different culture on the ad platform.
There’s also so much in the course about choosing the right targeting, and this is how you can bid and not blow through your budget, but also outbid a lot of people, everything from being compliant so you don’t waste your time. Those are just a few small mistakes a lot of people make when they jump on Snapchat.
You have spoken at different events, including GeekWeek TLV. Where can we expect to see you speaking next?
I’m still planning my public speaking schedule. My public information is out there for people that want to get it. I’m really addicted to these small masterminds and small get-togethers of people because there have such high-quality people and it’s great to get their information. And that’s not to say that I’ll never speak at an affiliate summit or affiliate world conferences, I’ll do that. Right now, I’m more focused on the private training that I’m doing.
