Bill Gates Still Getting Richer Through For-Profit Investments, Now Wants to Brainwash Children in Schools in Favour of His Investments

Posted in Bill Gates, Patents at 4:11 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Nice business model if you can get it, with obligatory taxpayers-funded lobbying to kids as part of it

Market movements

Summary: Some of the latest strategies used by the world’s richest man to protect his investments and amass yet more money, adding to an ever-growing wealth while pretending it’s a charity

The brainwash imposed by the Gates Foundation is not a new subject here. We have published a lot on this subject for over half a decade and we gave hundreds of examples. As a sort of corporation, with a market cap of nearly 100 billion dollars (or more), the Gates Foundation sure proves profitable. It is lobbying for Monsanto (Gates invests in this abusive monopolist [1, 2, 3, 4]) and other monopolistic enterprises that privatise what’s public, e.g. nature’s yields. Right now this monstrous body is trying to privatise US education (probably over half a trillion of taxpayers' money per year) and it is not alone although it is a clear leader in this vicious, greedy campaign of wealth passage from the poor to plutocrats. A good teachers’ blog known as Seattle Education has been slamming Gates for years, and this is coming from Seattle, i.e. near to Gates’ home (by some indications, Gates also eyes privatisation of British education when he finally around to it).

“As a sort of corporation, with a market cap is nearly 100 billion dollars or more, the Gates Foundation sure proves profitable.”“Propaganda fed to our children? Gates and his foundation are starting to feel the heat of controversy over his ideas of how public education should be managed as well as his investments in Monsanto. a company that produces GMO seeds. This pushback is happening in his own backyard and around the world,” says Dora Taylor, a lead writer in the teachers’ blog from Seattle. She is right and we saw this brainwashing/social programming for Monsanto before. Gates is investing (for profit) in this, so no wonder he spares some money to bribe schools in places like Hillsborough (see background in [1, 2]), bribing the education press and local press too (we gave a plethora of examples). It is a takeover, it’s a coup, but we mostly see public relations from the local press, stating nonsense like this lot: “Known in the school system as EET, the project is a massive undertaking, affecting some 15,000 employees. Long paid and promoted largely by seniority, teachers and administrators are making a transition to a system that rewards performance.”

No, it rewards Gates. This is not a charity, it is corporate takeover and we know whose stocks are affected. Gates’ lobbying front is acting like an investment corporations for oil, tobacco, etc. while masquerading bribes as ‘charity’ and paying no tax owing to posturing as a charity. It is a scam which feeds on media that opens its pockets/wallet in exchange for grooming/PR.

“It is a scam which feeds on media that opens its pockets/wallet in exchange for grooming/PR.”Here is the Irish paper which recently accused Gates of receiving bailout money from the Irish talking about Gates’ other investments. The Independent, says: “Filings for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which was set up for philanthropic purposes by Gates, show that it owned 49,000 shares in Paddy Power at the end of 2008. Those shares were worth just over €632,000 at the time. They would have risen more than fourfold in value to €3.1m by last week.”

Gates is an investor and lobbyist (for his investments), he is not a philanthropist and he does not give his money away. He is still getting a lot richer through his investments which he lobbies for (he got seven billion dollars richer last year alone) and he has just become the world’s richest man again [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7], reminding us all that we are being bamboozled if we ever believe that this man is distributing his wealth among the world’s population. He is a propagandist, an investor in companies that harm society (see his portfolio), and an arrogant lobbyist who pushes hard for policies that devalue the working class. Do not admire those who are looting you, writing your legislation and then buying the press you read in order to seed self-serving coverage.

  2. Walmart, Bank of America, Allied Security Trust (AST) and the Rush for 'Blockchain' Patents

    The hoarding of patents on novel-sounding code has reached ridiculous levels; very large corporations and even patent trolls arm themselves with such patents, hoping to make returns by means of litigation or an 'arms trade'



  3. Stupid Blogs, Stupid Lawsuits, and Stupid Patents

    The stupidity of the patent microcosm, which would like to see everything in the world patented and which would gleefully smear or even sue its critics (the EFF was sued several times for libel over its "Stupid Patent of the Month" series)



  4. Perpetuating the Big Lie That Unitary Patent (UPC) is About to Kick Off

    The (in)famous old lie about UPC being "just around the corner" is still being circulated, mainly if not only by patent law firms which stand to benefit from a litigation Armageddon in Europe



  5. EPO Validation in Former French Colonies That Have Zero European Patents

    The strategy of the EPO seems to be centered around the interests of Benoît Battistelli and his political career rather than that of the EPO; validation deals and dubious 'Inventor Awards' seem to be part of this pattern

  8. Masking Abstract Patents in the Age of Alice/§ 101 in the United States

    There are new examples and ample evidence of § 101-dodging strategies; the highest US court, however, wishes to limit patent scope and revert back to an era of patent sanity (as opposed to patent maximalism)



  9. PTAB's Latest Applications of 35 U.S.C. § 101 and Obviousness Tests to Void U.S. Patents

    Team UPC is still focusing on France as if it's up for France to decide the fate of the UPC, which EPO insiders say Battistelli wants to be the chief of (the chief, it has already been decided, would have to be a Frenchman)

    The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), reaffirmed by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) and now the Supreme Court as well, carries on preventing frivolous lawsuits; options for stopping PTAB have nearly been exhausted and it shows



  17. Software Patenting and Successful Litigation a Very Difficult Task Under 35 U.S.C. § 101

    Using loads of misleading terms or buzzwords such as "AI" the patent microcosm continues its software patents pursuits; but that's mostly failing, especially when courts come to assess pertinent claims made in the patents



  18. António Campinos Will Push Toward a France-Based Unified Patent Court (UPC)

    Frenchmen at EPO will try hard to bring momentum if not force to the Unified Patent Court; facts, however, aren't on their side (unlike Team UPC, which was always on Team Battistelli's side)

  22. LOT Network is a Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

    Another reminder that the "LOT" is a whole lot more than it claims to be and in effect a reinforcer of the status quo



  23. 'Nokification' in Hong Kong and China (PRC)

    Chinese firms that are struggling resort to patent litigation, in effect repeating the same misguided trajectories which became so notorious in Western nations because they act as a form of taxation, discouraging actual innovation



  24. CIPU is Amplifying Misleading Propaganda From the Chamber of Commerce

    Another lobbying event is set up to alarm lawmakers and officials, telling them that the US dropped from first to twelfth using some dodgy yardstick which favours patent extremists



  25. Patent Law Firms That Profit From Software Patent Applications and Lawsuits Still 'Pull a Berkheimer' to Attract Business in Vain

    The Alice-inspired (Supreme Court) 35 U.S.C. § 101 remains unchanged, but the patent microcosm endlessly mentions a months-old decision from a lower court (than the Supreme Court) to 'sell' the impression that everything is changing and software patents have just found their 'teeth' again



  26. A Year After TC Heartland the Patent Microcosm is Trying to 'Dilute' This Supreme Court's Decision or Work Around It

    IAM, Patent Docs, Managing IP and Patently-O want more litigation (especially somewhere like the Eastern District of Texas), so in an effort to twist TC Heartland they latch onto ZTE and BigCommerce cases
