The Gates Press (GatesGate) — Part V: Putting the Series on Hold to Focus on More Urgent Matters

Posted in Bill Gates, OLPC at 9:34 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

We’ve slowed down lately due to urgent research into newly-acquired material

Hand holding money

Summary: A little update on the “GatesGate” series; due to some work on a book, as well as material coming (at long last) from Seattle’s Police Department, we’re putting this series on pause for a while; we’ll likely resume this series later this summer

IN part one, part two, part three, and part four we covered a bunch of stuff that had happened years earlier (than the time of reporting). We only became aware of what really happened a very long time later. It deals with the Gates Foundation being extremely hypocritical about Africa (see videos), claiming to be helping Africans whilst in fact harming them for profit.

“So we’re going to shuffle and reprioritise some things (changing projected times of publication), based on what’s more time-sensitive a topic.”We duly apologise for this series taking so long to complete. Not only were we sent about 200 pages of police material; the correspondent with whom I research this was busy covering the protests in Pittsburgh. So we’re going to shuffle and reprioritise some things (changing projected times of publication), based on what’s more time-sensitive a topic. “Things have gotten really crazy here,” he told me hours ago, as “I have a deadline for a book manuscript in about 6 weeks and it’s been my main focus. Time flies when you’re insanely busy, as I’m sure you know.”

Expect a long delay; “No hurry really,” I’ve told him, as “we’re dealing with an old scandal here.”

There are separate issues at hand and they’re loosely rather than closely connected. “My OLPC reporting really didn’t turn up all that much,” he said, “unless you want to do a story about a small, mismanaged company that probably shouldn’t be in the laptop business.”

Some of the ‘smoking guns’ were in Wikileaks (diplomatic cables). To many this is ‘old news’ (covered to some extent at the time), so for the time being we’ll press on with newer topics. The correspondent explores “the inherently corrupt practice of using a “philanthropy” to do your bidding.”

This is the same “philanthropy” which apparently ousted him from a major publisher, soon to be ‘replaced’ with Gates himself as the editor (see prior parts of this series).

“So,” he said, “here I am five years later and I’m looking into the Gates Foundation for my podcast, Failed State Update. I’d love to interview you about some of your recent Techrights stories on Gates, specifically regarding Covid-19, Jeffrey Epstein, and the shady ethical ground the foundation is on in general.”

If there’s an episode about it, that won’t happen any time soon. Part of the issue is privacy; I instructed him to set up PGP encryption. Previously it was not used. Based on his recent track record, which is partly listed here, he wrote for Counterpunch not too long ago (Counterpunch is a site we typically agree with). We should note upfront that the connection, if any, was limited to this past interview and IRC chats.

Part VI will likely come some time this summer. Until then, however, it seems safer to put things back in the ice bucket. I personally hoped to be done with this series by now, wanting to find out remnants of the article about OLPC that we can piece back together… namely how Bill Gates — through his fake ‘charity’ — attacked the charity because it did not use Microsoft Windows.

I wish to clarify with utmost sincerity that we’re not pausing due to a mistake or a lack of material; it’s just that I’m drowning in more shocking material at the moment, linking the person who was questioned and later arrested (while working at the home of Bill Gates) to some other companies, including one that works for Microsoft. We’ve sent some E-mail inquiries, giving the party which might be complicit in harm to children a chance to respond. They’re stonewalling on the face of it; we’ll persist to ensure they get every chance to properly reply. When we say “harm to children” we mean physical harm, not merely access to child pornography. We’ll leave readers with the video below.

  3. High-Level Criminals Associate Privacy With Crime Because They Want Privacy Only for Themselves (Control But No Accountability)

    Tyrannical tendencies from the non-scientist who tries to paint himself as Mr. “science” (Jeffrey Epstein tried to do exactly the same thing, which is why he and Gates paid universities) are bare naked for everybody to see



  4. It Was Mozilla -- Not Google (or Chrome) -- That Liberated the World Wide Web From MSIE Monoculture and O/S Vendor Lock-in, But Firefox is Likely Dying

    Mozilla's attitude towards software freedom, privacy, and the most widely used free/libre operating system (O/S) isn't helping the "protected media" (DRM) Fox because its biggest selling point is becoming outdated/irrelevant/neglected

  7. Reporting Facts is Never a Crime (It Must Not Become That Way)

    The two-party political system in the United States is racing towards bipartisan (transcending perceived 'wings') rejection of free press, which won't be on the ballot box except for "third" parties; it's a real problem because it's designed to weaken if not obliterate accountability

  9. [Meme] Linux Foundation and ZDNet Openwashing Proprietary Mass Surveillance (for a Fee!)

    The Linux Foundation and ZDNet tell us that Facebook is “open” (because it pays for that openwashing); the Foundation’s love of mass surveillance and spin regarding such surveillance is reaching new heights for the Foundation, clearly misusing the “Linux” brand, is rapidly becoming a leading voice for malicious surveillance companies that need openwashing to merely seem or feel “ethical”



  10. [Meme] IBM and Its Shakeups (Shaking up of the Earth)

    The Linux Foundation helps IBM seed shallow press coverage [1-6] about how IBM supposedly ‘saves the world from earthquakes’ 75 years after atomic bombs were dropped on Japan (after IBM had helped develop these), causing earthquakes-like effects and deaths of hundreds of thousands of people

  14. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) Identified Some of the Children in the Pornographic 'Stash' of Bill Gates' Engineer

    Today we carefully and responsibly disclose just 9 pages (out of about 2700 pages) with slightly redacted samples and a handful of exemptions to show what Bill Gates' engineer was amassing, including identified kids (known to NCMEC)



  15. A Red Hat Response to Factual Information About Red Hat

    So far we've seen only Red Hat employees blasting our articles about Red Hat/IBM and the responses lack any substance, just name-calling (so we must be on the right track; there's no refutation so far)



  16. Always Look for Stories the Media is Suppressing and Hiding

    Based upon closer scrutiny of the Jones case (engineer of Bill Gates arrested for pedophilia at the Gates mansion), the sentence he received is incredibly negligible or close to nothing (for possession and sharing/dissemination of massive troves of child pornography, typically leading to many years in prison), so we’re closely examining if he’s still working and whether he still works for Bill and Melinda (more FOIA requests may be necessary)



  17. On Web Servers, Microsoft's Collapse Continues More Rapidly Under COVID (a Million Domains Lost in the Past Month)

    Even though the Microsoft-sponsored media repeatedly refuses (or strangely enough just 'fails') to report on it, the days of Microsoft's IIS are likely numbered; it won't be long before less than a million computers run it



  18. Canonical is Boosting Microsoft's Proprietary Software With Extensive Surveillance

    Canonical’s commitment to Free software barely exists; with so-called “Apps” and “Snaps” and “Stores” we’re seeing a gradual transition to — and acceptance of — blobs and DRM, including Microsoft lock-in inside Ubuntu

  27. You Just Know Somebody is in a State of Retreat When the Strategy Becomes to Discredit One's Critics (or Collectively Paint Them All as Wrong/Crazy)

    A goulash of bullcrap from Bill Gates doesn't add up; it seems like his media strategy has warped (or fallen back) onto discrediting his critics as though they don't exist, don't know anything, or are simply jealous



  28. United States v IBM Archives/Resources

    As the massive case against IBM monopoly (United States v IBM; 104,400 pages of trial transcripts and 17,000 exhibits) predates the World Wide Web it's difficult to find comprehensive literature about it any longer (Wikipedia and more modern sites are instruments of revisionism and reputation laundering)



  29. History Goes in Cycles

    Just like antiwar activism was 'quelled' or 'pacified' half a century ago nowadays we're led to think that software freedom is just fine and there's nothing left to argue about (except words and other petty nonsense)
