Gates Keepers to Keep Track of Gates Foundation

Posted in Bill Gates, Deception, Microsoft, Patents at 10:41 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: On a Web site dedicated to watching the darker side of the Gates Foundation and its real impact on civilisations

WE HAVE received an E-mail from Gates Keepers, probably in response to yesterday's explanation of the Gates Foundation's obsessive occupation with patents. We are not alone among those who explore the darker side of Gates’ work outside of Microsoft. “Love your boycott novell blog,” writes Gates Keepers, who brought attention to his/her Web site. Since we keep track of this type of stuff, we wish to bring attention to Gates Keepers and also recommend it. To give just a sample of some recent posts from October, aside from copyright violations (Gates Keepers must really stick to snippets) we find some interesting items that are looking beyond the PR. Examples:

i. Chinese copy of the Gates Foundation

Monday the papers were all asplash with announcements that there would be a Chinese copy of the Gates Foundation. Now it appears that the celebration might have been premature. Perhaps New Huadu is a perfect imitator, as Microsoft also engaged in illegal activities before the Gates Foundation emerged.

ii. Chinese innovation and the Gates Foundation

If this is how the Gates Foundation tries to support innovation in China it is not trying very hard. China has lots of new tech talent educated in the US. If the environment is right in the next twenty years there will be lots of innovation. But are small timebound grants the way to support it?

iii. Unions, Bill Gates pump last-minute cash against Wash. ballot issue slowing gov’t growth (c/f Abramoff for similarities)

National labor unions and Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates are among the donors who have poured nearly $1.5 million of last-minute cash into the campaign against Initiative 1033, a ballot measure that would slow the growth of state and local governments.

iv. Gates Foundation program advisory panel member speaks out on war and security

v. Is the Gates Foundation listening?

Gates Keepers thinks there will be no Gates Foundation grants for Reganold or Herren forthcoming.

Isn’t it governance that is lacking for the Green Revolution in Africa? Does blaming people who question genetically modified plants help? Heim is asking the right questions of the right people. Is the Foundation listening?

See our posts about Monsanto for example:

We have also produced extensive evidence showing that the Gates Foundation is buying the press. Gates Keepers points to more examples from this month, e.g.:

i. Will Bill Gates Come to the Rescue of Journalists?

Online news site Crosscut’s announcement yesterday of a $100,000 grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation surely raised some hopes in the tumultuous world of journalism. Is Bill Gates waking up to the havoc caused by the digital technology he has unleashed? Will his enormously deep-pocketed philanthropy come to the rescue of a profession–and means of informing that the public– that threatens to disappear? Can the New York Times expect a bailout next?

ii. Vanessa Mazal talks about how the Gates Foundation is getting into the media

This is frightening. She tries to simplify media development and media for development but in the end it all sounds manipulative … like our strings are being pulled by the Gates Foundation.

The author states in the comments: “Development of the public good of ‘media for development’ specifically benefits Microsoft when their products are used. Paying media organisations to put ‘health messages’ that specifically showcase the work of the Gates Foundation into their communications is manipulative. We used to call this a conflict of interest.

Conflict of interests is also what we find in the Gates Foundation’s pharmaceutical investments [1, 2, 3, 4].

The one last item is a fascinating example of conflicts of interests: [via]

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has contributed $10 million to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, expected to open in late 2015 on the National Mall in Washington.

We wrote about this before (also in IRC). Patti Stonesifer became a chairwoman at the Smithsonian Institution shortly after she had left the Gates Foundation where she was CEO. We ‘caught’ her husband planting Gates Foundation glorification pieces in major magazines, as last mentioned here. They still control the mainstream press and thus they control the story (or the fantasy rather) absorbed by the public.

How far is Bill Gates going? Gates Keepers is not particularly optimistic.

  6. [Meme] Protecting European Patent Courts From EPO 'Mafia'

    With flagrant disregard for court rulings (or workarounds to dodge actual compliance) it seems clear that today's EPO management is allergic to justice and to judges; European Patents perish at unprecedented levels in national European courts and it should be kept that way

  12. The EPO’s Overseer/Overseen Collusion — Part XII: The French Connection

    The EPO‘s presidency (led by Frenchmen for nearly 15 years out of the past 18 years; Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos are both French despite their somewhat misleading surnames) is extremely unlikely to even be mildly scrutinised by the French delegates because of a web of nepotism and protectionism



  13. [Meme] Another Maladministration Meeting Comes to an End

    Did the EPO‘s overseeing body properly tackle Benoît Battistelli‘s illegal acts, authorised by that very same overseeing body? Don’t hold your breath as António Campinos continues to crack down on staff (maybe ILOAT will rule on it in 2030)

    “Education and childcare reform” [sic] is an António Campinos "reform" in the same sense regressive salary reductions are just “adjustments” (euphemism); Electronic opt-in gaffes, according to staff representatives, show that the tradition of Benoît Battistelli carries on at the Office, taking away from staff for a few corrupt officials to milk the institution to death

    The EPO‘s French dictator, Benoît ‘Vichy’ Battistelli, might be relieved to hear that his enabler in the adjacent Switzerland also enlisted armed bullies to keep the population down (the father of António Campinos might know a thing or two about those; it’s why he fled to France)
