Billions of dollars not enough, still mining for pennies
Summary: Gates and fellow ‘one-percenters’ gain trillions of dollars in wealth (during a so-called recession) by robbing the rest of society and physically harming it for profit
The giants of the green world that profit from the planet’s destruction
Purists will point out that no big green group is clean, since virtually every one takes money from foundations built on fossil fuel empires – foundations that continue to invest their endowments in fossil fuels today. It’s a fair point. Consider the largest foundation of them all: the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As of December 2012, it had at least $958.6m – nearly a billion dollars – invested in just two oil giants: ExxonMobil and BP. The hypocrisy is staggering: a top priority of the Gates Foundation has been supporting malaria research, a disease intimately linked to climate. Mosquitoes and malaria parasites can both thrive in warmer weather, and they are getting more and more of it. Does it really make sense to fight malaria while fuelling one of the reasons it may be spreading more ferociously in some areas?
There are more examples of this kind, such as tobacco and polio, Gates habitually pretends to embrace one side while actually, for profit, embracing the opposite side with his wallet. He really likes to mess with politicians’ minds so that they foolishly give taxpayers’ money to him and fellow plutocrats (we provided many examples ranging in their nature), who according to some statistics gained 6 trillion dollars in the economic ‘recovery’ while others (the lower 99.9%) lost a lot of money. Transfer of wealth and power is what this whole “crisis” really is and what our reader called “pocket pool” helps show how Gates perceives heads of highly-advanced nations. He treats them like inferiors, like tools. The real leaders or the world are those with obscene amounts of money and now they try to abduct the education (indoctrination) establishment in addition to the fourth estate, the media. The non-Koch-owned media is full with reports about the Koch brothers buying the press these days, but little attention is paid to much bigger bribery (for self censorship and propaganda) by Mr. Gates.
On a positive note, as time goes by more people get the guts to chastise Gates for what he is really doing under the guise of ‘charity’. He got $7 billion richer last year alone. So much for an economic ‘crisis’ and a giveaway of wealth… █
