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.

What Else is New


  1. The Linux Foundation is Not About Linux

    Linux Foundation (LF) objectives/missions do not resemble what the Open Source Development Labs, Inc. (OSDL) was founded to accomplish; this puts at grave threat the very raison d'être of both GNU and Linux



  2. Guest Post: The Linux Foundation Needs to Define “Support”

    Part of an ongoing series of articles we do about the Linux Foundation



  3. Dimitris Xenos on Unconstitutional Supranational Arrangements for Patent Law: Leaving Out the Elected Legislators and the People’s Participatory Rights

    A new paper from a British scholar proves to be timely because of the EPO's violations of the European Patent Convention (EPC) and failed push to force-feed Europe with the unconstitutional Unified Patent Court (UPC)



  4. The Campinos-Battistelli Strategy is Working: Patent Trolls Are Coming to Europe!

    It cannot be any less obvious that today's European Patent Organisation (and Office) works for patent offices and for those who pay these patent offices (law firms) rather than for science, technology and the public (including the European public)

  6. Links 24/3/2019: Microsoft Does Not Change; Lots of FOSS Leftovers

    Links for the day



  7. Just Published: Irrational Ignorance at the Patent Office

    Iancu and his fellow Trump-appointed "swamp" at the USPTO are urged to consult academics rather than law firms in order to improve patent quality in the United States



  8. Microsoft Paid the Open Source Initiative. Now (a Year Later) Microsoft is in the Board of the Open Source Initiative.

    The progression of Microsoft entryism in FOSS-centric institutions (while buying key "assets" such as GitHub) isn't indicative of FOSS "winning" but of FOSS being infiltrated (to be undermined)



  9. Jim Zemlin's Linux Foundation Still Does Not Care About Linux Desktops

    We are saddened to see that the largest body associated with Linux (the kernel and more) is not really eager to see GNU/Linux success; it's mostly concerned about its bottom line (about $100,000,000 per annum)



  10. Links 23/3/2019: Falkon 3.1.0 and Tails 3.13.1

    Links for the day



  11. The Unified Patent Court is Dead, But Doubts Remain Over the EPO's Appeal Boards' Ability to Rule Independently Against Patents on Nature and Code

    Patents used to cover physical inventions (such as engines); nowadays this just isn't the case anymore and judges who can clarify these questions lack the freedom to think outside the box (and disobey patent maximalists' dogma)



  12. Patent Law Firms Still Desperate to Find New Ways to Resurrect Dead Software Patents in the United States

    There's no rebound and no profound changes that favour software patents; in fact, judging by caselaw, there's nothing even remotely like that



  13. Links 22/3/2019: Libinput 1.13 RC2 and Facebook's Latest Security Scandal

    Links for the day



  14. Why the UK Intellectual Property Office (UK-IPO) Cannot Ignore Judges, Whereas the EPO Can (and Does)

    The European Patent Convention (EPC) ceased to matter, judges' interpretation of it no longer matters either; the EPO exploits this to grant hundreds of thousands of dodgy software patents, then trumpet "growth"



  15. The European Patent Office Needs to Put Lives Before Profits

    Patents that pertain to health have always posed an ethical dilemma; the EPO apparently tackled this dilemma by altogether ignoring the rights and needs of patients (in favour of large corporations that benefit financially from poor people's mortality)



  16. “Criminal Organisation”

    Brazil's ex-President, Temer, is arrested (like other former presidents of Brazil); will the EPO's ex-President Battistelli ever be arrested (now that he lacks diplomatic immunity and hides at CEIPI)?

  18. Team UPC (Unitary Patent) is a Headless Chicken

    Team UPC's propaganda about the Unified Patent Court (UPC) has become so ridiculous that the pertinent firms do not wish to be identified



  19. António Campinos Makes Up Claims About Patent Quality, Only to be Rebutted by Examiners, Union (Anyone But the 'Puff Pieces' Industry)

    Battistelli's propagandistic style and self-serving 'studies' carry on; the notion of patent quality has been totally discarded and is nowadays lied about as facts get 'manufactured', then disseminated internally and externally

  21. CEN and CENELEC Agreement With the EPO Shows That It's Definitely the European Commission's 'Department'

    With headlines such as “EPO to collaborate on raising SEP awareness” it is clear to see that the Office lacks impartiality and the European Commission cannot pretend that the EPO is “dafür bin ich nicht zuständig” or “da kenne ich mich nicht aus”



  22. Decisions Made Inside the European Patent Organisation (EPO) Lack Credibility Because Examiners and Judges Lack Independence

    The lawless, merciless, Mafia-like culture left by Battistelli continues to haunt judges and examiners; how can one ever trust the Office (or the Organisation at large) to deliver true justice in adherence or compliance with the EPC?



  23. Team UPC Buries Its Credibility Deeper in the Grave

    The three Frenchmen at the top do not mention the UPC anymore; but those who promote it for a living (because they gambled on leveraging it for litigation galore) aren't giving up and in the process they perpetuate falsehoods



  24. The EPO Has Sadly Taken a Side and It's the Patent Trolls' Side

    Abandoning the whole rationale behind patents, the Office now led for almost a year by António Campinos prioritises neither science nor technology; it's all about granting as many patents (European monopolies) as possible for legal activity (applications, litigation and so on)



  25. Where the USPTO Stands on the Subject of Abstract Software Patents

    Not much is changing as we approach Easter and software patents are still fool's gold in the United States, no matter if they get granted or not

  28. Microsoft and Its Patent Trolls Continue Their Patent War, Including the War on Linux

    Microsoft is still preying on GNU/Linux using patents, notably software patents; it wants billions of dollars served on a silver platter in spite of claims that it reached a “truce” by joining the Open Invention Network and joining the LOT Network



  29. Director Iancu Generally Viewed as a Lapdog of Patent Trolls

    As Director of the Office, Mr. Iancu, a Trump appointee, not only fails to curb patent trolls; he actively defends them and he lowers barriers in order to better equip them with bogus patents that courts would reject (if the targets of extortion could afford a day in court)
