Distractions From Microsoft’s Gigantic Tax Evasion and Contribution to Denial of Climate Science

Posted in Bill Gates, Deception, Finance, Free/Libre Software, GNU/Linux, Microsoft at 7:13 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

The greenwashing efforts (as seen earlier this month in shallow ‘media’ that’s nowadays more like a glorified PR apparatus) are a cynical ploy at best

Windows is secure. War is peace.

Summary: Microsoft (connected to oil companies) wants us to think of it as a “green” company; not only does it contribute to climate denial but it also evades tax, which is a serious crime that costs tens of billions of dollars (the public pays this money instead)

WE have been covering Microsoft here since 2006 (I had written a lot more about it since the 1990s). It’s no secret that Microsoft lies a lot about a lot of things, including its stance on the environment (we recently published "Microsoft is a Market Leader in Lying and Corruption"). Remember that both Microsoft and Bill Gates financially backed ALEC, as we noted here a long time ago. Microsoft subsidises big polluters and Bill Gates is best friends with them.

Over a decade ago we wrote about ALEC, about BP, and a lot about other environmental concerns. Microsoft very often shows up as a major facilitator. Recently there was whistleblowing at Microsoft about its close relationship with oil companies that drill the seas and cause unbelievable environmental damage.

“The people at Microsoft sometimes believe these lies! They’re not too bright, it’s like a cult to them.”Wouldn’t Microsoft want and even need a distraction from all this?

Notice how the media is nowadays painting Microsoft as “fighting patent trolls” (Microsoft passes to them lots of USPTO- and EPO-granted patents in order to attack Linux by proxy), painting Microsoft as protective of children (because Gates is closely connected to pedophilia on several levels), and saying that Microsoft is infatuated with minorities and women (the opposite is true, based on the track record and lawsuits). They keep telling us that Microsoft is “in love” with what it’s constantly attacking in a variety of ways, e.g. GNU/Linux. The people at Microsoft sometimes believe these lies! They’re not too bright, it’s like a cult to them. This cult gives them salaries. Microsoft management or the company as a whole keeps calling itself 'Open Source company' while it is actively attacking Open Source, e.g. through GitHub, which is proprietary (Microsoft is then bribing the critics at GitHub, based on admissions they publicly make in Twitter).

As one GNU/Linux developer put it this week: “I’ll believe “Microsoft loves Linux” when I see them support desktop Linux. For now it’s very self-serving and entirely when is convenient. It doesn’t count as an investment. It looks like just PR so it doesn’t show that they’re being dragged by the market, kicking and screaming.”

This is to be expected from a company of criminals such as Microsoft. The crimes are harder to perpetrate when people are aware and forewarned.

For over a decade we wrote about Microsoft’s long history of tax evasion worldwide; even whistleblowing from Microsoft itself explained all the pertinent details over the years. It’s not a secret anymore. Almost a decade ago the IRS belatedly took on this issue, tackling Microsoft (connected to oil companies) and this new report reveals Microsoft’s strategy. [via Benjamin Henrion]

“It’s the biggest audit in IRS history,” one person explained. “Of what has been the largest company in the world. It’s taken over a decade. And it’s still not done. And it’s not going well for the gutted IRS.”

They just try to make it too expensive for the IRS or to ‘run the clock’…

Bill Gates bribed a lot of publications to focus on tax evasion of all companies other than Microsoft as well as his own tax evasion using a sham, bogus ‘charity’.

Here are some of the details from this new article:

Eight years ago, the IRS, tired of seeing the country’s largest corporations fearlessly stash billions in tax havens, decided to take a stand. The agency challenged what it saw as an epic case of tax dodging by one of the largest companies in the world, Microsoft. It was the biggest audit by dollar amount in the history of the agency.

Microsoft had shifted at least $39 billion in U.S. profits to Puerto Rico, where the company’s tax consultants, KPMG, had persuaded the territory’s government to give Microsoft a tax rate of nearly 0%. Microsoft had justified this transfer with a ludicrous-sounding deal: It had sold its most valuable possession — its intellectual property — to an 85-person factory it owned in a small Puerto Rican city.

Over years of work, the IRS uncovered evidence that it believed laid the scheme bare. In one document, a Microsoft senior executive celebrated the company’s “pure tax play.” In another, KPMG plotted how to make the company Microsoft created to own the Puerto Rico factory — and a portion of Microsoft’s profits — seem “real.”

[...]

It seems likely, given the size of Microsoft’s Puerto Rico transaction, that the IRS in May 2011 had hit the company with a tax bill in the billions. But Maruca and Hoory thought the agency was thinking small.

Maruca told Microsoft the IRS needed more time, and in early 2012, the IRS withdrew its findings. By then, Hoory had taken leadership of the audit. He began sending new document requests to Microsoft, asking for more interviews and considering what other experts the IRS needed to round out its case. Over the next three years, he and his team amassed tens of thousands of pages and conducted dozens of interviews with Microsoft personnel. (Hoory, who still works at the IRS, declined to comment.)

The evidence they assembled told a story. It revealed how Microsoft had built a massive Rube Goldberg machine that channeled at least $39 billion in profits to Puerto Rico. It revealed a workshop of outside consultants, economists and attorneys who, as they had with other corporate clients, meticulously planned a structure that seemed to have a basis in the law, even if it violated common sense.

The documents showed that Microsoft had been caught red-handed, Hoory believed. Despite all their care in preparing for an eventual audit, the deal’s architects had left damning evidence that, he thought, made it possible for the IRS to expose the sham.

So those who are rich and have prestigious lawyers (or external law firms) can just exhaust the resources of the IRS and get away with it, leaving the IRS to pick on poor and defenseless people instead. This is maladministration and a hallmark of corruption becoming the ‘norm’. We recently mentioned how lots of Microsoft crimes all around the world resulted in only a tiny settlement. Nobody was arrested. This is the kind of atmosphere which encourages Microsoft to carry on with crime.

In order to keep people ‘off its back’ Microsoft kicked off a shameless greenwashing campaign. It started about a week ago and boiled down to nothing more than a blog post and some future (fictional) date with no commitments. Associates of ours thought it was intended to perpetuate the illusion of Microsoft existing for many years to come.

Media which Gates and Microsoft have bribes blindly parroted the talking points from Microsoft. This is why many people no longer trust the media.

CounterPunch wrote this rebuttal to it and published it on Tuesday. To quote some portions:

“This is a bold bet – a moonshot – for Microsoft.”  So claimed Brad Smith, Microsoft President, in a Thursday announcement painting a picture of a company that intends to be carbon negative by 2030.  “And,” Smith continued, “it will need to be a moonshot for the world.”  That vision entails the removal of more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than it emits.  By 2050, the company intends removing from the environment all carbon the company has emitted since its founding in 1975.

[...]

But much of this should not detract from the obvious point: Microsoft is happy to have a bit each way when it comes to how it finances its green image. The waters it bathes in are not always ecologically sound. While the company positions itself high on the soapbox of environmental purity, it is still a corporation governed by that traditional mix of predatory instinct and innate opportunism. In this, it shares a streak with Facebook and Google, two other entities who exude self-confidence in the illusion that they are principled, morals at the ready.

This point was made last year when it was revealed that all three companies sponsored LibertyCon, the annual conference for the Students for Liberty, a libertarian group. Both Microsoft and Facebook forked out $10,000 each as gold sponsors; Google went a grade better with $25,000, making the platinum grade.

This clutch of sponsors was not, in of itself, odd. But the three companies found themselves sharing a crowded platform with outfits distinctly against the science of climate change, showing how vast open tents can get rather muddy on the inside. One of those present was the CO2 Coalition, a group celebrating the virtues of carbon, and feels that it has been unduly demonised. Carbon, it lauds, “is essential for life.” Available at the conference was a brochure from its good offices extolling the merits of greater quantities of carbon dioxide, explaining how that would improve “our lives and our planet Earth”.

One of its members, retired statistics professor Caleb Rossiter, spoke at the gathering by insisting that, “There has been no increase in storms, in intensity or frequency. The data don’t show a worrisome trend.”

In short, Microsoft is the very opposite of what it claims to be.

ZDNet has also just published “Microsoft to forcibly install Bing search extension in Chrome for Office 365 ProPlus users,” so anyone who still believes in the fictional ‘new’ Microsoft needs to wake up and follow the money. One might end up in some offshore tax evasion haven.

Mansion of Pedophilia – Addendum: Accessing and Assessing Court Documents

Posted in Bill Gates at 4:03 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: How anyone out there can do the job the media failed to do (after an apparently unprecedented arrest at the home of Bill Gates)

THE requests for information from the police aren't progressing fast enough (or at all!) and our associates have suggested escalating this to reporters dealing with FOIA-type matters. We’ve been exceedingly patient and polite all along; there’s no excuse for over 4 months of delays. What will be the point at which we can focus on the PD‘s repeated delays and chastise the people who work there for it? They cannot be sued to divulge this information as long as they keep making such polite statements. They don’t say “no”, they just say “later” (again and again). How long can that go on for? Apparently years.

We’ve meanwhile been contacted by victims (of such abuse). They are eager to know what happened at the mansion and who worked there. It’s not easy to find information about it (the media mentioned it only briefly when people were on holiday). We’ve been investigating and exploring alternatives access points to verified information.

We’d like to share with readers one available option. Any person can do this. The process is very simple and takes only a couple of minutes (initially). This was alluded to in the seventh part.

To see the court’s record (documents) for this case go to the site of the King County Superior Court and click “I accept” (“To Continue Please Accept Terms and Conditions”).

We still wait for police records (2000+ pages, plus more items as there are other related documents).

The court documents might not have the same level of detail. In the case of the police, they likely hold the documents on Microsoft PCs/servers, which can be tampered in theory (by Microsoft and others). The delays don’t bode well. As for the courts, this is the kind of stuff that’s more public-facing, so tampering might be riskier (people outside the court may notice differences).

We’ll do this research one little step at a time. This can take a while. Notice that this case runs — in some form or another — until 2018. We have lots left to show here and speed isn’t that critical a thing as long as we’re 100% facts-based (so that nobody can nitpick).

This past week’s news was filled with puff pieces (sourced by Microsoft) about Microsoft protecting against child (sexual) exploitation and MIT making up excuses for Bill Gates passing money through a sexual exploitation network. We’re not too bothered by that as it might simply show a level of nervousness and a need to distract.

Mansion of Pedophilia – Addendum: Progress on Police Request

Posted in Bill Gates at 2:52 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“Due the heavy workloads and shortage of staff, the Department needs additional time to complete an installment.” –Seattle PD, November 14th

You drove too fast. Do you know who my dad is? I will check.
Sometimes connections help

Summary: 9 updates from the police department of Seattle but still nothing material/concrete, only promises and major delays

There are numerous ongoing requests (different accounts, albeit similar requests) with the Seattle Police Department (SPD or SPPD). There might even be more on the way, but additional requests would slow down an already-slow process. The pertinent details probably merit an addendum or a few addenda.

“We don’t want to speculate about causes for delay or about sincerity, at least not at this point.”One person who put in a request has just shared recent updates from the SPD. They send similar/identical messages to all requesters. “NAMELY LIBERTY will be publishing all correspondence from SPD related to this request in due time. Stay tuned,” it said, “watch for future updates.”

The introduction says this: “It’s been nearly 5 years now, since Rick Allen Jones was convicted, and these documents seem to have been completely ignored by media. While the Seattle Police Department has been responsive to this request, to date, they have not produced any of the above requested items. In the several status updates they have sent, related to this request, confirmed there to be “over 2000 pages” and that attempting to download the report, at even 1/4 at a time, has caused their system to crash.”

We saw the same updates. We don’t want to speculate about causes for delay or about sincerity, at least not at this point.

“The Three Most Recent Communications From Seattle Police Department,” the site said, are as follows.

December 5, 2019 – SPD sent the following:

Good morning,

I’ve been trying to download the requested report all morning, every time it crashes my system. This report is over 2000 plus pages. I’ve even tried taking 1/4 at a time. It’s still taking forever.

I will need to speak with my supervisor with ideas of getting you this report. I will need to push this request out again. I don’t know how long it will take, but you will hear back from me tomorrow.

I appreciate your patience.

S. Hurst, Seattle Police Department, Legal Unit

December 12, 2019 – SPD sent the following:

The purpose of this communication is to provide a status update regarding your request.

The Seattle Police Department needs additional time to respond to your request due to the following:

*** The report has finally downloaded, and is being reviewed for any redaction’s ***

At this time, we anticipate having a response/installment to you on or about 1/8/2020.

S. Hurst, Seattle Police Department, Legal Unit

January 9, 2020 – SPD sent their most recent update:

The purpose of this email is to provide you with a status update. We are having technical problems with trying to process your request, because this report is over 2000 pages it keeps trashing on us. We are trying to figure out how it get this processed. At this time, we anticipate getting back to you on or about February 17, 2020.

S. Hurst, Seattle Police Department, Legal Unit

Based on public pages such as these from MuckRock, Sauncy Hurst works for the “Seattle Police Department” in the “Public Disclosure Unit”. The style is consistent and the name is already in the public record. So we doubt privacy is being compromised here.

This did not start with Seattle’s PD though. Correspondence record/timeline which was shared with us included: (notice how they discuss redactions whilst also claiming to have issues opening the file):

  • September 13, 2019 – Written request made to King County Sheriff’s Office: “Request is made for the following public records regarding criminal case # 14-1-06789-1: 1. Full police report. 2. Search warrant application and affidavit. 3. CAD report. 4. All transcripts/audio recordings/statements from defendant and witnesses related to this case. 5. Property/Evidence Report.”
  • September 13, 2019 – Received email from Sakilyne Kally | Functional Analyst II | Public Disclosure Unit – Subject: Public Disclosure Request Reference #P039465-091319. Message: “Using the information provided, the KCSO Disclosure Unit has determined that the incident you are referring to occurred outside the jurisdiction of the KCSO. We suggest you contact Seattle Police for records that may be responsive to your request. You may reach them at (206) 684-5481. Your request is now closed.”
  • September 13, 2019 – Submitted same written request to City of Seattle Public Records Request Center. Included additional optional fields for reference: “Incident Number: 14-1-06789-1. Incident Date: March 20, 2014.”
  • September 13, 2019 – Request received by SPPD, reference number is P047691-091319. City of Seattle Public Records Request Center user account created and confirmed by email.
  • September 16, 2019 – Status update received. “Your request status is: Assigned.”
  • September 19, 2019 – Email from Sauncy Hurst, Seattle Police Department Public Disclosure Unit: “Are you involved in this incident? If you are please provide your date of birth to make sure we locate the correct incident.” My only response, same day, was, “No.”
  • September 19, 2019 – Email received with: “Your request status is: Being Researched/Reviewed.”
  • September 19, 2019 – Email received from Sauncy Hurst: “Pursuant to RCW 42.56.520, this is notification that the Seattle Police Department has received your public disclosure records request and needs additional time to respond. At this time, we anticipate having a response or a status update to you on or about 10/22/2019. We are initiating the process of researching your request, collecting responsive records, and/or preparing records for dissemination.
  • October 22, 2019 – Received status update email from Sauncy Hurst: “The Seattle Police Department needs additional time to respond to your request due to the following: Records are currently being reviewed for redactions At this time, we anticipate having a response/installment to you on or about 11/13/2019.”
  • November 14, 2019 – Received status update email from Sauncy Hurst: “Due the heavy workloads and shortage of staff, the Department needs additional time to complete an installment. At this time, we anticipate getting back to you on or about December 4, 2019.”
  • December 4, 2019 – Received status update email from Sauncy Hurst: “I’ve been trying to download the requested report all morning, every time it crashes my system. This report is over 2000 plus pages. I’ve even tried taking 1/4 at a time. It’s still taking forever. I will need to speak with my supervisor with ideas of getting you this report. I will need to push this request out again. I don’t know how long it will take, but you will hear back from me tomorrow. I appreciate your patience.”

Further updates are already out there, quoted at the top. And yes, there’s some communication among petitioners. Coordination? No. But communication. It’s important to advance the request, even if not all stakeholders share the same views/positions/motivations. The public needs and definitely deserves to know what happened there. Nobody is above the law. Or maybe…

“This might be “strategic delaying” (giving you the mere impression of progress while never intending to make any).”File splitting, I might add, is very simple. It should not be hard to process such a request. I assume they use something from Microsoft, possibly even hosted by Microsoft (on a so-called ‘cloud’). They might be using Microsoft tools and maybe Microsoft hosting. If it’s them who saved these files in the first place, can’t they open their own files? Was there tampering? We don’t know and we don’t want to guess. No police department can hold a company accountable if that company controls that department’s IT facilities. That much should be obvious…

In terms of the dates, we all need to wait another month or so. This might be “strategic delaying” (giving you the mere impression of progress while never intending to make any). We’re meanwhile also advancing on the other front: court documents. We’ll post details separately in the next addendum.

Mansion of Pedophilia – Part VIII: More Than 4 Months of Waiting for Police Department to Send Over the Files They Claim to Have an Issue Opening

Posted in Bill Gates at 1:44 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Who controls their software/systems anyway?

Cannot open the Files... the Files I myself created
It oughtn’t take a nuclear physicist and more than 4 months to just open a file (unless there’s no actual will to open that file)

Summary: The police department (PD) of Seattle is unable to open its own files about arrest for pedophilia at Bill Gates’ home; it has been unable to open these files for several months, it claims…

TODAY we continue our series, which we have been working on slowly and patiently (until facts can be verified). In part one, part two, part three and part four we described the matter at stake, followed by apparent cover-up in the fifth part and the sixth part. Over the past 1-2 weeks we saw further evidence of cover-up and in the seventh part we spoke about the conviction. There’s vast (over 2,000 pages long) police record/report, several dozens of court documents (spanning about 100 pages), and only about couple of press reports — all issued while people were on holiday and about one year late. As the Seattle PI put it at the time: “Among the images were photos showing the anal rape of an 8- to 10-year-old boy and a rape of an 8- to 10-year-old girl.”

The following tweet was posted on the date of the arrest/search.

Melinda Gates tweet

The details of the arrest and search (for conviction to be secured) will be shared later. The noteworthy part is, Melinda found time (in her very busy schedule and on that rather unusual date) to post some very old photo, sharing it on Twitter years later. We’re certain that she and her husband were very well aware and involved at the time (police interview at their home).

We are still waiting for the police department (PD) to release the requested files. It has been more than 4 months now! A couple of weeks ago they promised an update on February 17th, but it seems not probable (even improbably), based on the wording, that in February 2020 we’ll get anything concrete. They claim to have technical issues. But for how long? 4 months?

“We are still waiting for the police department (PD) to release the requested files.”A Techrights associate believes that the police wishes to just cover this up. “One thought regarding the coverup,” he suggested: “Someone among them or their support circles could find out which software (including versions) the PD has from Microsoft and print out the licenses for all versions going back to the original installation. The machines came with some versions pre-installed and some additional programs were added, then these were all updated many times. Each version and update comes with its own license. Print these out and then lawyer through them pedantically to read where and when Microsoft has officially written in full access to the data files stored on those machines.

“In other words the longer the coverup goes on, the more I would question the integrity of the material produced by the PD.”

We have a lot more to show, but some of it would be unwise to publish at this stage (premature because of upcoming deadlines/ongoing processes).

Mansion of Pedophilia – Part VII: Guilty Verdict in Case of Pedophilia (Staff at the Mansion of Bill Gates), But Where Was the Mainstream Media?

Posted in Bill Gates, Courtroom at 2:58 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

The media hardly found this conspicuous even though it’s connected to the world’s richest person (at the time)

Guilty highlight

Summary: We take our first glimpse at court documents and a preliminary look (overview) of what the case in question entailed, with updates on the record for almost 5 years

THIS series has begun receiving a lot more attention than we initially expected. Best-selling book authors now link to it and are engaged with growing interest. We maintain our high standards here, notably saying nothing that cannot be verified and proved. This is why it takes a long time to prepare this. Behind the scenes we keep supporting material. We have not yet been challenged on any pertinent facts; if something appears to be missing from the text, we strongly encourage reading prior parts first. Each part depends on preceding parts. For this part we strongly suggest familiarising oneself with the fifth part and six part. Those who are not familiar with the Epstein connection might wish to see what we wrote earlier (this past weekend).

In later parts we hope to show what the police report said, what the lawyers said and today we’ll start dealing with what the court said. Here are all the relevant documents in their index:

Jones page 1

Jones page 2

Jones page 3

Jones page 4

Mind the total number of pages. It’s a lot.

We won’t say anything about the nature of this case (at least not yet). It’s not entirely possible that they lay all the blame on the wrong people and we all know how plea bargain works (we covered examples of the associated issues in the past). Months ago we showed one such example in the case of Eric Lundgren, which we covered in

Sometimes the courts can put forth cases (and police selectively choose charges) that help clearing the names of those with more power, more connections, and more money. It’s not unprecedented. In the case of Chelsea Manning, those who exposed war crimes received the full brunt of the law, unlike those whose crimes were exposed. Manning and Julian Assange may therefore be seen as ‘sacrificial lambs’ — a situation wherein those punished aren’t those who merit any (or most) of the punishment. Looking at the raw court material, the person arrested — an employee of Bill Gates working at his home — was found guilty. It’s about pedophilia, as we explained in part one, part two, part three and part four. This will take a while to digest, but we keep things as concise as we can (and careful check everything for accuracy).

Regarding the above documents and the times, pay attention to this detail:

guilty plea one year apart

As someone told us while researching it: “AND HOW COME IT TOOK A WHOLE YEAR???”

We mentioned this before, also in relation to media coverage…

It happens when journalists are away (holidays).

“This is another reason I want to see the affidavit,” said the person. “And I want to know why a court date wasn’t set immediately days after his apartment was searched???”

We have a large and growing team working on this. Stay tuned for the next part.

This can take a while to properly understand in full. Notice how it runs — in some form or another — until 2018. We still wait for police to comply with record requests. Our pace is partly curbed by our ability to get particular material. We also need to be polite and diplomatic as publication tone/fashion can alienate particular parties.

When You Hang Around With So Many Rich Criminals and Dictators You May as Well be One Yourself

Posted in Bill Gates at 11:39 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“Show me who your friends are, and I will tell you what you are.” (Sometimes attributed to Vladimir Lenin; many other quotes exist to that same effect)

Cultural differences don't exist among the moneyed class

Summary: Bill Gates and his poor taste in friends has not escaped the attention of his critics (and his father’s critics); the Saudi ties certainly merit a closer look because they’re rarely explored in mainstream media (except in the form of congratulatory puff pieces)

BILL GATES and his connection to the Saudi regime has been noted here multiple times over the years for well over a decade. It’s not a secret relationship. The above is one of many photo ops of Gates and MbS (he has many more photo ops with other members of that authoritarian family). That’s not really the point though; had we invested more time in it, we would be able to line up literally hundreds of photo ops of Gates with many Saudi ‘officials’ (they’re not elected, it’s just an oppressive, West-leaning dynasty with roots in the partitioning of the Middle East for oil extraction — once discovered in the religion, soon to be exploited and later shipped through Suez). Saudi Arabia derives it financial power from fossil fuel power (energy/oil) and almost nothing else. Tourism in Mecca (pilgrimage) is a drop in the ocean — or the metaphorical oil well — in comparison. Let’s not dwell over politics in the religion; there’s much to be said about brutality in Yemen, beheading of women/atheists, assassinations overseas (of dissidents and journalists) and so much more. In recent years a lot of these issues receive belated media attention, whereupon Saudi Arabia started paying off athletes and so-called ‘influencers’ to improve the country’s image (sportswashing, music festivals, fake equality and staged feminism). We won’t even talk any further about hard drug use by the royal family (Wikileaks exposed material on that a decade back, there were also arrests for smuggling by top officials), child marriage, pedophilia and so on. The drug use may be strictly “haram” (not that the royals truly follow their own religion), unlike the latter. That seems more suitable a subject for Daily Links, where we’ve already included literally hundreds if not thousands of stories on the subject. It’s already becoming ‘too political’ a subject and we want to focus not on partisan debates (like age of sexual and marital consent) but on more unique and distinct (or unexplored) aspects.

MbS is one of many in power; it’s like a family business. Either you’re it in or you’re not. It’s really that simple. There are no political challengers, maybe just competition within the family (vying for the crowd). A few years ago there was a death, there was a successor (for the crown) and then there’s the well known connection between Saudi Prince Alwaleed and Bill Gates (we wrote about that more than a decade ago). “Another Saudi notable,” a reader told us recently, is “Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman [who] met with Trump in the US and with Gates 10 days later.”

I don’t share this reader’s suspicion that pedophilia had anything to do with it, but for what it’s worth the reader said: “I think it’s worth noting these meetings as there was likely other things discussed like how they’re going to get away with their crimes against children enterprise.”

The reader cites this post from Seattle which said “The Saudi Crown Prince’s motorcade on the move in the Seattle area. Right now Mohammed bin Salman just arrived at Bill Gates’ home. Police are warning about traffic slowdowns throughout the Puget Sound region.”

And days apart: “President Donald Trump holds a meeting in the Oval Office with Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.”

Only about a decade ago (under Obama) we took note of similar things. The Chinese leader, for example, upon his rare voyage to the US decided to visit almost nobody but Gates and the US President. People complained about this at the time. Is Gates like a de facto deputy in leadership? Remember that John Podesta suggested Bill Gates as Vice President under Hillary Clinton. We’ve long known this owing to verified leaks (published by Wikileaks from Podesta’s inbox).

As our reader correctly notes (we wrote about it many years ago): “Gates is a part owner in the Four Seasons of the Mandalay Bay with Saudi Prince Alwaleed. Gates and Alwaleed have a history.”

Four Seasons is a Bill Gates- and Saudi-owned hotel. The Saudi-Gates business and personal relations definitely merit further investigations, but some routes of exploration may lead us astray.

The reader, who strictly prefers to remain anonymous, spent a lot of time exploring the whole “population control” issue (it’s no secret that the father of Bill Gates is closely connected to it), partly because in a PBS interview Bill Gates said: “When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating. At the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing. And almost treating us like adults, talking about that.”

Gates himself said “[m]y dad was head of Planned Parenthood.” I myself am not against Planned Parenthood, but some people are. And anyway, whether one is for or against Planned Parenthood isn’t the key point.

“The guy joined his “giving pledge” and has been funneling millions into Gates’s vaccine programs,” our reader said about Alwaleed. “He’s also invested in “assisted reproductive technology.” If you follow the Gates vaccine/population agenda you will know how much of a racket the Foundation really is. He’s obsessed with “population issues.” (population control). Alwaleed was arrested (placed on palace arrest) a couple years ago and Gates came out in the media defending him. It’s unknown (to me) what the arrest was over but I suspect it was over a privately negotiated agreement through the Trump administration and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman or King Salman. A power change.”

The assumption here is that practice of pedophilia (different laws in Wahhabism). Dr. Lawrence A. Franklin once said (December 2017) that “[t]he tendency to ignore it is magnified when religious officials are the ones committing the atrocities, as the behavior reflects badly not only on the perpetrators themselves, but has the potential to damage Islam’s reputation.”

Such views are often suppressed as ‘hateful’ irrespective of the underlying facts, which may not be convenient. And yes, by all means it’s a problem among clergy in other monotheistic religions — that too should be a permissible topic.

Taking all this into account, it is possible that Gates was — either as observer or ‘in the know’ (not a participant) — witnessing issues pertaining to pedophilia. It’s hardly unthinkable that some of his friends and allies — not only Epstein — were rather upfront and frank about it. Gates maintained his close ties to Epstein after he had been trialled, convinced and even arrested.

Our reader went on and pointed out the so-called “Mandalay Bay” ‘hotel’, which became well known or notorious just over a couple of years ago and became almost synonymous with human ‘shooting range’. To quote Wikipedia: “One of the property’s towers operates as the Delano; the Four Seasons Hotel is independently operated within the Mandalay Bay tower, occupying five floors (35–39). Mandalay Bay has 3,209 hotel rooms, 24 elevators and a casino of 135,000 square feet (12,500 m2).”

“Back to Four Seasons,” our reader noted, there’s this old article from NBC News entitled “Vegas Gunman Stephen Paddock’s Brother Arrested in Child Porn Probe”. To quote:

The estranged brother of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock was arrested Wednesday on child pornography charges stemming from an investigation that predates the massacre.

Bruce Paddock, 58, was detained at a Los Angeles assisted-living facility, where he was awaiting surgery for spinal stenosis. A felony complaint said he had over 600 explicit images of minors in 2014 and had also swapped pornography.

He faces 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of possession of child pornography, the complaint says. He was being held on $60,000 bond.

The LAPD said the images were discovered inside a building where Paddock was squatting, but they could not find him at the time. After his brother’s crime, they learned where he was and obtained a warrant, police said.

An attorney who Paddock said had represented him in criminal matters in the past told NBC News he is no longer representing him and declined to comment.

Another brother, Eric Paddock, who lives in Florida, said he had no comment on the arrest.

This case was with LAPD at the time. There’s probably no connection to either Gates or the Saudi regime, but it’s worth noting who owned that building and what Bruce Paddock did (not related to that building which his brother used to massacre an unprecedented number of people, injuring 869 people (413 by direct gunfire) and fatally shooting 58 other than himself).

Nihilist ‘death cults’ tend to indulge in death, vengeance and sometimes abuse of youngsters. Why would Gates wish to associate and be ‘all smiles’ with MbS? And the same for Epstein, whom he visited in prison.

Massachusetts Institute of Tall Tales (MIT) Covers Up Bill Gates Bribery of MIT Through a High-Profile Pedophile, Citing No Evidence Other Than Representatives of Gates Himself

Posted in Bill Gates, Deception, Microsoft at 11:47 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

This is the only part (of the very long report) which deals with Gates’ role and it’s more like cover-up, citing nothing but the accused’s legal team (which does exactly what Gates pays it to do)

MIT on Bill Gates

Summary: MIT does not properly investigate its big ‘donor’ Bill Gates; instead it helps perpetuate the myth that MIT is pure and Gates has no real connections to Epstein (because Gates and his staff say so)

THE TIME that Aaron Swartz died many people blasted MIT and MIT responded with a white-washing report. We cited about a dozen news reports about it back then. But this isn’t about Swartz, whom MIT let down and left exposed — to the point where he killed himself (to avoid potentially more severe consequences for him and his family).

Rafael Reif has just (late on Friday) released this “fact-finding” [sic] report. Who funded it? Well, check the list of MIT donors. Those who fund it can indirectly control the output, obviously…

“Who funded it? Well, check the list of MIT donors. Those who fund it can indirectly control the output, obviously…”This report is hardly independent; we know who commissioned it and it’s hosted by the MIT’s own site (the full report is here [PDF]). In our humble assessment, it’s possibly rewriting history based on nothing except people salaried by Bill Gates. There are also press reports [1-3] from Microsoft- and Gates-funded sites (one of which was formerly owned by Microsoft’s co-founder). So now we have Joichi Ito (Creative Commons) and Richard Stallman (GNU, FSF and more) mentioned in the media, but one wonders if Rafael Reif is trying to distract from the much bigger MIT bribes that came from Bill Gates through his friend, Jeffrey Epstein. The media reports say nothing about it. One report said: “His death was ruled a suicide by New York’s chief medical examiner, though Epstein’s status as a member of the jet-set crowd who socialized with everyone from high-profile scientists to Microsoft founder Bill Gates as well as unanswered questions about his demise have fueled conspiracy theories.”

Oh, we see… anything that doesn’t fit in with the media’s narrative is instantaneously “conspiracy theories…”

Well, based on our past research and reporting, Joichi Ito and Richard Stallman were hardly the culprits; they were more like scapegoats or sacrificial lambs — people used by MIT to claim that firm action was taken and people were severely punished (even if the wrong people).

“In the above screenshot (of the original PDF) it’s worth noting/noticing how they admit that they’ve received money from Gates, so in effect MIT was corrupted by that money and MIT does not want to ‘shame’ or ‘embarrass’ the ‘generous’ donor.”Notice the screenshot at the top. Does that look like the outcome of a real, thorough investigation (as can be expected from a reputable institution such as MIT)? Notice the form of the evidence. It’s like hearsay. Those are people whom Gates pays, reinforcing the perception — however widely held — that people with power and connections having the ability to change the record, rewrite history and so on. What next? Bill Gates coming out with a walking stick or claiming to have dementia (like his father)? The Weinstein and Cosby legal trick? Well, no need… he already managed to remove himself from the interrogation cycle by saying it was all a “mistake”. That’s it. Imagine a shoplifter being released for merely admitting regret.

In the above screenshot (of the original PDF) it’s worth noting/noticing how they admit that they’ve received money from Gates, so in effect MIT was corrupted by that money and MIT does not want to ‘shame’ or ‘embarrass’ the ‘generous’ donor. To hell with MIT. It’s part of the problem because it allowed itself to be corrupted by money, not just Gates’ also Saudi money (a country where such sexual discourse — sex with adolescents — if considered culturally normal).

Related/contextual items from the news:

  1. MIT Report Finds That Jeffrey Epstein Donated $850,000 to MIT Media Lab, Professor Seth Lloyd

    Disgraced financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein donated $850,000 to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, per a university investigation that has found ex-MIT Media Lab director Joichi Ito and mechanical engineering professor Seth Lloyd solicited the contributions.

    Epstein died in a New York prison cell in August 2019 while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges stemming from accounts that he abused and trafficked dozens of minors in Florida and New York. His death was ruled a suicide by New York’s chief medical examiner, though Epstein’s status as a member of the jet-set crowd who socialized with everyone from high-profile scientists to Microsoft founder Bill Gates as well as unanswered questions about his demise have fueled conspiracy theories.

    Ito resigned from the MIT Media Lab in September 2019 after his extensive financial ties to Epstein were revealed, including $525,000 in lab funding and $1.2 million for his personal investment fund. By that point, Epstein’s 2008 conviction in Florida on charges of procuring a minor for prostitution and subsequent sweetheart plea deal with prosecutors to escape serious consequences was a matter of public record.

  2. Read MIT’s full investigation on Jeffrey Epstein’s controversial donations and who knew what

    Today, MIT released a 63-page fact-finding report detailing the institute’s involvement with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. MIT says that the report focused on visits that Epstein made to campus and 10 donations made by Epstein between 2002 and 2017, totaling $850,000. Nine of the donations, totaling $750,000, were made after 2008 when Epstein pleaded guilty to solicitation of prostitution with a minor.

    The report, prepared by the law firm Goodwin Procter, found that while the president of MIT, L. Rafael Reif, was not involved in accepting the money, several prominent members of the MIT community were, including three vice presidents. The report found that all donations made after Epstein’s 2008 conviction went to either MIT’s Media Lab or to engineering professor Seth Lloyd. Lloyd’s lab received two $50,000 donations from Epstein in 2012 and $125,000 in 2017. In addition, Lloyd received a gift of $60,000 from Epstein that went straight into his personal bank account and is not being counted in the totals.

    Lloyd and Epstein met in 2004, and were connected by Lloyd’s book agent, and the report notes that the two remained friends after Epstein’s conviction in 2008. The report also found that the two $50,000 donations to Lloyd in 2012 were made to test the waters at MIT. “Specifically, Epstein was disappointed that other academic institutions would not accept his money following his 2008 conviction, and, as Epstein put it (using a fishing metaphor) in an email to Professor Lloyd, “im going to give you two 50k tranches to see if the line jingles,” the report says. In 2016, Lloyd asked Epstein for more money, and received $125,000 in 2017.

  3. Epstein donations to MIT caused ‘serious damage,’ report finds

    The review, conducted by law firm Goodwin Procter at the behest of the university, also found that MIT’s acceptance of 10 donations from Epstein totaling $850,000, which three vice presidents knew about, “was the result of collective and significant errors in judgment that resulted in serious damage to the MIT community.” On Friday, MIT announced the investigation results and a 61-page report outlining the review.

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s ties to Epstein, a multimillionaire, already have had consequences. Joichi Ito, director of the MIT Media Lab, resigned in September. And Richard Stallman, founder of the free software movement, resigned from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab after the publication of an email thread in which he’d said one alleged Epstein victim likely “presented herself … as entirely willing.”

    Epstein died in August of an apparent suicide in jail while facing federal sex-trafficking charges. Federal prosecutors in New York alleged Epstein sexually abused and exploited dozens of underage girls. Epstein had been convicted as a sex offender, in 2008, and the new charges against him arrived as the widespread MeToo movement brought down other powerful men.

    When Epstein made his $850,000 in donations to MIT, there was no formal policy against accepting funding from “controversial” donors, the investigation found. But three administrative vice presidents — R. Gregory Morgan, Jeffrey Newton, and Israel Ruiz — knew of the source. Morgan and Newton are retired. Ruiz is set to step down from his position at MIT this year.
