Bill Gates Deposition: Gates Keeps Referring to His Attacks on Competitors (Linux Included) as “Jihad” and Still Lies About Illegal Contracts

Posted in Antitrust, Bill Gates, Deception, Microsoft at 9:19 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

The ‘nice’ and ‘shy’ man from Seattle turned out to be somewhat of a monster and a mobster; even judges could see that

Al-FatahSummary: Bill Gates showed his true face years before his reputation-laundering ‘Jihad’ which he called the Gates Foundation; we look back at a few articles, then present the latest part, which will be examined more closely later

THE BILL GATES deposition tapes may seem like “old news”, but a lot of stuff in them is relevant to this day. Microsoft pretends that it’s no longer a monopolist and it’s lobbying governments to pretend “GAFA” is the real threat. Gates has been lying so much when interrogated (see the first part, second part, third part, fourth part, fifth part, sixth part, and seventh part; also see annotated transcripts and publication of some very long transcripts) that the courtroom and the judge had to laugh at him.

In 1999, for example, James V. Grimaldi of the Seattle Times — before Bill Gates started bribing this paper (as he did through the Gates Foundation!) — wrote this:

Microsoft is being sued separately by Caldera, which holds patent rights for DR-DOS. The company contends Microsoft illegally used its market power to prevent DR-DOS’ success.

Asked Boies: “Are you aware of any destruction or disposal of documents relating to DR-DOS?”

Replied Gates: “It’s possible somebody once upon a time sent an e-mail message to somebody else that DR-DOS was part of the subject of that e-mail and then the person deleted that message.”

Boies: “When you say it’s possible that someone did that, were you involved in that, Mr. Gates?”

Gates: “I doubt that every e-mail message I ever received that had the word DR-DOS in it, that I choose to preserve forever after.”

This is just one among many examples of Microsoft sabotage. In the following article (“Gates deposition makes judge laugh”) notice how Gates is quoted as using the word “Jihad” to describe his war on the competition. Is this how he justifies crimes (to himself)? Religious terminology that is so loaded? He said that about Linux [1, 2] and here too… he says so about other rivals:

The federal judge presiding over Microsoft’s antitrust trial shook his head and laughed during portions of Bill Gates’ videotaped deposition played in court last week featuring the vendor’s founder and chairman denying that his organisation launched a “jihad” against the Internet browser of rival Netscape.

In a rambling 50-minute segment pulled from Gates’ three-day deposition, Gates engaged in a verbal duel with US Justice Department attorney David Boies, splitting hairs over literal interpretations of e-mails and memos and refusing to concede that officials focused their efforts primarily on Netscape.

Boies confronted Gates with an e-mail the Microsoft chairman wrote to a subordinate on January 5, 1996 that said in part, “Winning Internet browser share is a very, very important goal for us.” Gates said he didn’t remember writing that specifically. But Boies pressed him about what organisations he would include in the term browser share.

[...]

Gates was shown a document sent to him by Brad Chase, a Microsoft vice president, on March 13, 1997 that said, “We need to continue our jihad next year . . . Browser share needs to remain a key priority for our field and marketing efforts.”

“It doesn’t say Microsoft,” Gates said in his deposition.

“Well,” said Boies, “when it says ‘we’ there, do you understand that means something other than Microsoft sir?”

“It could mean Brad Chase’s group,” Gates replied.

Gates was more forthcoming when asked what Chase meant by jihad. “I think he is referring to our vigorous efforts to make a superior product and to market that product,” Gates said.

Courtroom laughter

What a nice and honest guy, eh? A man of integrity, of truth, or science…

“…notice how Gates is quoted as using the word “Jihad” to describe his war on the competition.”Today’s media has been bribed so far and wide by this man that we’re supposed to think he’s not only a genius but a benevolent guardian of the planet and a fountain of truth.

Amazing what money can accomplish…

Without further ado, here’s the Bill Gates deposition, part 8:


The video started with a shaking (or rocking back and forth) Gates looking as nervous as a fetus waiting to be aborted. Of course he keeps lying. Again and again. Then he’s presented with evidence and he’s trying to still lie, albeit it gets harder. This is what sociopaths are like…

We expect that part 9 will be ready some time tomorrow morning.

    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
