Laundering the Reputation of Criminals: That’s an Actual Job

Bill Gates and Laundering of Reputation

Summary: An important reminder that the manufactured, paid-for (media is being bribed) image of Bill Gates is the product of the PR industry he enlisted to distract from his endless crimes

Web Site Which Exposed Microsoft Crimes is Gone From the Web, But Copies Still Exist

Posted in Antitrust, Bill Gates, Microsoft at 12:45 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Comes v Microsoft
The Wayback Machine has some snapshots

Summary: Reputation laundering operations of Microsoft tell us that Microsoft is a ‘new’ and ‘reformed’ company; but Comes v Microsoft documents serve to show that little has changed

“iowaconsumercase.org has disappeared down the memory hole,” a reader told us. It used to host loads of material about Microsoft’s crimes.

“The only legacy people will remember of Bill Gates,” said the reader, “is self-serving BS such as this…”

“Recently Gates had the audacity to blame an Android (with Linux) takeover on “antitrust”; as if to say that Windows would dominate everything if it weren’t for attempts to punish him for his crimes.”“Notice they replaced the site with a ‘business and consumer news’ site,” the reader added. So now it has nothing to do with what it used to provide.

Well, our reader wanted to remind us of what Bill Gates said (that’s no longer accessible from the original source):

Dec 1998: “allowing Office documents to be rendered very well by OTHER PEOPLES BROWSERS is one of the most destructive things we could do to the company

April 1995: “our plans continue to underestimate the importance of an OPEN unified approach for the internet

April 1995: “the Internet is taking away our power every day and will have eroded it irretrievably by the time broadband is pervasive

Jan 1997: “With Netscape and Corel working together its nice that we organized ourselves so the group attacking Netscape and the group attacking Corel are under common leadership

Oct 1997: “I have a critical meeting with Intel a week from Wednesday. I want to convince them that they need to stay away from Oracle NCs and work more closely with Microsoft

These are all quotes from Gates himself.

Recently Gates had the audacity to blame an Android (with Linux) takeover on “antitrust”; as if to say that Windows would dominate everything if it weren’t for attempts to punish him for his crimes. That’s morally absurd. It’s like a bandit blaming the police for not becoming rich (from stealing) and therefore calling for abolishment of all cops/law enforcement. Such is the mind of the spoiled little brat, who nowadays runs away when people mention his close relationship with Epstein.

“He [Bill Gates] acted like a spoiled kid, which is what he was.”

Ed Roberts, Gates’ employer at MITS in the 1970′s (Atlanta Journal-Costitution, 04-27-97)

Need More Questions

Mr. Gates has repeatedly been caught lying about his relations with Mr. Epstein

I don't always fancy childhood. When I do, I hang around my best friend J. Epstein.

Summary: Pedophilia-centric scandals associated with Bill Gates or people working for Bill Gates don’t interest the media anymore; people shy away from the possibility of ‘embarrassing’ the so-called ‘philanthropist’, celebrated by the media he is sponsoring

Nobody Should Believe Bill Gates and the Media He ‘Sponsors’ (Bribes) Anymore

Posted in Bill Gates, Deception, Microsoft at 4:31 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Bill Gates confessionSummary: No matter how hard Bill Gates and his legion of lawyers/PR people try to divert the media’s attention away from his Epstein scandal, it keeps coming back

HAVING researched the crimes of Bill Gates for a decade and a half, and having chronicled the scam which is his so-called ‘charity’, I feel somewhat vindicated this week. Gates has managed to buy some time (about 2 months now), but facts are catching up with him and people ask much-needed questions.

“One more for today,” said a person who had sent us some pointers, “which shows the strategy Bill’s team will now take, but it’s from TheFail, so wait for other articles from more reputable (but no less obedient to Bill) on the same theme…”

Notice how, in this tabloid at least, Gates is described as escaping the subject and changing the subject very quickly. Just like those deposition tapes. He’s stressed. He’s afraid.

“Bill Gates can get many lies out of his mouth. He did so for decades (the deposition tapes are full of these). But he cannot force people to chew, he cannot force-feed or waterboard people, not even when he bribes the international media to the tune of $100 million per year under the guise of ‘charity’ (lobbying/bias/lies).”“Not gonna lie,” someone who had worked for Gates told us last night. “It’s great to see Gates get thrashed in the news lately.”

“No one believes him and it’s hilarious.”

Bill Gates can get many lies out of his mouth. He did so for decades (the deposition tapes are full of these). But he cannot force people to chew, he cannot force-feed or waterboard people, not even when he bribes the international media to the tune of $100 million per year under the guise of ‘charity’ (lobbying/bias/lies). That number isn’t made up; that’s how much he throws at the press every year (to keep it on his side, yielding endless praise and puff pieces).

We accumulate and will eventually use more material on this subject. We’re patient. We’re very picky in this fact-finding endeavour. I have not been tracking this subject so closely until recently (we used to write about it a lot about a decade ago). Some close affiliates of Gates and his sham ‘charity’ spoke to me as well; they had input.

More of them are growingly concerned — some quit — over the Epstein scandal. Look at the coverage from the New York Times last month. Gates’ staff at the Foundation was evidently concerned. These people knew he had been up to no good. But who would listen to them at the time? Who would believe? “They’re just jealous,” media would sigh, and then Gates-funded media would leap to his rescue…

Techrights will continue to write about Bill Gates in relation to this. He bribed a lot of the world’s media, but he’s not off the hook for these pedophilia ties. Some facts gradually come out and distraction tactics serve as mere procrastination. This is even bigger than Gates because, according to the New York Times, others in Microsoft’s management are also closely connected to Epstein (numerous people) and that goes back at least to the 1990s when Microsoft was a lot smaller. When the sex-trafficking ring too was a lot small. There’s no disputing that Mr. Gates was a Lolita Express passenger (there were, according to victims’ accounts, beds on the plane with kids in them). Neither Gates nor his spokespeople deny this. As for the press? Well, the press has a different agenda. There have been articles and tweets lately about suppression attempts by the British royal family (because of Andrew) and more partisan circles like to speak about Bill Clinton. Not as many have spoken about Gates. “Bombshell,” says this new tweet, “ABC News anchor Amy Robach says her network spiked an explosive exposé about Jeffrey Epstein and the Clintons in the middle of the 2016 election.”

How about media funded by Gates or his close friend defaming Stallman since September, shifting all the attention from Gates’ MIT scandal to a totally phony one?

“Think of the children!”

“Someone, do something about Stallman!”

As if he even did anything to them. He doesn’t even have children; he sacrificed his family life for GNU.

Recently I decided to speak to Richard Stallman about recent events and see if Richard can better explain what happened and what he thinks about it. He’s usually open (or free) about those things if asked by someone not hostile/suspicious (the motivations)…

My first message to him:

Hi Richard,

Allow me to express solidarity and understanding; the past couple of months have been unfair to you. You were slandered by the media, which distorted your message to accomplish some outcome, and then this slandering media celebrated this outcome (a dedicated article), which relied on the slander.

I am not sure if you are aware of it, but the distortion was started by VICE, which is funded by a close friend of Bill Gates (this is a matter of public record). Rupert Murdoch funds it.

The way I see it (and have long seen it), your ‘situation’ helped shift attention away from Bill Gates’ MIT scandal, which had hit the media just weeks if not days before the VICE article, followed by coverage from various other News Corp. publications (NYPost, Fox and so on).

A month or so later NY Times published an explosive piece about this relationship, reaffirming some people’s suspicions that Bill Gates had likely engaged in underage sex. Back in 2015 I wrote about arrests in Bill Gates’ own home for paedophilia (trading, online at least, photos of child rape). That’s in the police records. The Microsoft-Epstein connections, according to NY Times, may go back to the 1990s.

Would you be interested in discussing the topic? A bunch of us at Techrights have been dissecting the chronology of news coverage to better understand if someone pulled strings and, if so, what for.

Divide and rule tactics are bad enough; but that may help distract from an even bigger story.

He responded to me, asking follow-up questions. It was then (a day later) that VICE resumed defamation of character, whereupon we published this article and I told Stallman that “the URL (the words in it) gives you the gist of it.”

“A group of students is demanding that MIT fire Seth Lloyd, an undergraduate mechanical engineering professor who visited Jeffrey Epstein in prison,” stated the opening part. But later it repeated the slander/defamation of Stallman’s character, falsely claiming that he defended Epstein (the very opposite is true).

VICE continues to help distract from what Bill Gates did with Epstein — not just in prison but also in MIT. Many people have not paid enough attention, but Gates was hanging out with Epstein, visiting him in prison etc. even after he knew what he had done. Quotes/mail from inside the Gates Foundation show concern that Gates himself was engaging in the same acts as Epstein. NY Times investigated this and published about it last month.

“Stallman” is mentioned again in this article (above). This is from last night.

As you may recall, very early in the scandal I pointed out to you that the media was trying to shift all attention — directing the masses and the outage to you. You responded by saying that Gates has more leverage over the media than you (or something to that effect).

If you are willing, I wish to ask a set of questions pertaining to media-led witch hunts. It’s clear that VICE led the way in distorting what you had said. It libelled you and later celebrated its libel ruining your career.

Will you be comfortable discussing these issues? If so, I will send a set of questions.

He has not responded since. It has been 3 days. But I cannot blame him. Right from the start I assumed he’s be reluctant to open (again) this jar of worms, seeing how eager media would be to twist his words.

The Only Person Punished for the Gates-Epstein Connection/Affairs Seems to be Richard Stallman and Now the Libel Resumes

Posted in Bill Gates, Deception, FSF at 12:11 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Close friends of Bill Gates have partial ownership of the media outlet that started this whole thing and continues to defame Richard Stallman (even several times so far this week)

James Murdoch Buys a Stake in Vice Media
Last month: James Murdoch Buys a Stake in Vice Media

Rupert Murdoch firm dips into hipsters' bible with $70m stake in Vice
Six years ago: Rupert Murdoch firm dips into hipsters’ bible with $70m stake in Vice

Summary: The media that caused Dr. Stallman to lose his place at MIT and also at the FSF (which he had founded) still libels him, having just — yet again — wrongly asserted that Stallman “defended” the person whom he actually called “serial rapist”

THE Bill Gates-Epstein scandal is nowadays treated by media like “old news”. As if there’s “nothing to see here, people, move along…”

Neither Gates nor Epstein are ‘friends’ with Stallman (or anyone in the Free software movement), yet guess who the media was so eager to connect to paedophilia. Is this fair? Is this real journalism?

We’ve become accustomed to ‘conspiracies of silence’ (instructions not to cover, akin to DSMA-Notice) in mainstream media; we’ve seen that in European Patent Office (EPO) coverage, more so in the António Campinos days (under Battistelli the media did occasionally cover the scandals).

“Neither Gates nor Epstein are ‘friends’ with Stallman (or anyone in the Free software movement), yet guess who the media was so eager to connect to paedophilia.”We have plenty of things we can write about, but it would be morally wrong to leave the injustices behind. “Until then,” as one reader put it, “it would be good to focus on the Gates Epstein connection. I think you hit it when you said Gates shuffled money to Epstein to ruin the MIT Media Lab and FSF. You should get some details and get in touch with other journalists who are wondering why Gates had anything to do with Epstein. A pretty good explanation is that Gates wanted to destroy his most effective idealogical competitor and eliminate the home of the One Laptop Per Child project, both of which would send a strong signal to the academic community that resistance is futile.”

We decided to have a chat with Richard Stallman. It’s a sensitive subject, but we were eager to bring up the subject, seeing that the media was doing so anyway.

This thing was published less than 2 days ago. VICE (Murdoch) continues to help distract from what Bill Gates did with Epstein — not just in prison but also in MIT. Hours ago the same slander reached “VICE UK” and it’s already spreading to other sites. “Now, Motherboard reports…” (it’s another ‘branch’ of VICE). And VICE’s defamation of Stallman continues (never mind calling him “open source” something — which in itself is like an insult): “The fallout was swift. MIT Media Lab leader Joichi Ito resigned after it came out that he’d helped hide the donations, and famed open source advocate Richard Stallman left as well after defending Epstein’s sex trafficking on an MIT listserv.”

He did NOT defend that! He NEVER did. One might add that the article shows or reveals a degree of double standards as well. It does, after all, seem like a “race to the bottom” (how to associate with Epstein a lot of people, except Gates). As one person put it:

this really isnt entirely reasonable.

they keep going after smaller and smaller offenses, this isnt zero tolerance policy it is -1, -2, -3 policy.

i can understand a few people not wanting to take this class. but why is everything (EVERYTHING) a fire-able offense? a bunch of people decide to hold signs, and now theyre in charge of everybody else? why dont more people think thats a bit nuts? (i realise theyre afraid to say anything.)

“im unhappy, fire this guy.”

“why?”

“he dealt with a bad man. then he had the nerve to say so.”

he sounded like he was being apologetic for it, like a disclaimer.

maybe it was a stupid move. why does every conversation start with “im going to disrupt the campus until you fire someone?”

why the fuck do we pretend an enlightened society is one where we have to have run such a question through a series of fucking political experts just to ask a simple fucking question without having your entire life ruined out of spite?

if this was only happening to bad people– hey, whatever. but its very clear this can happen over so many misunderstandings and mischaracterisations, it becomes nearly arbitrary.

thats injustice, but also its stupid. this is just people pushing people around. thats got to stop sooner or later, because sooner or later people are going to realise this is either bullshit, or close enough. please, stop the insanity while there are still people with jobs left to do them.

when do people decide theres been enough mob justice and one-sided conversations demanding hasty responses and no deliberation? we arent there yet? really? nope, i guess not. the solution to everything is “youre fired.” really, thats the only option, the only tool available. its that or everybody holds signs forever and bother everybody who disagrees.

well, fuck. i guess theres no society left then. good job, everybody. pat yourselves on the back for ending the entire concept of society itself. supposedly there is only mobs and mob justice, this is how we do everything now.


As Tom Grz put it: “Can we fire Bill Gates? No more interviews perhaps?”

One reader from Germany, citing the FSFE’s controversial statement (“Richard Stallman resigns as president of the Free Software Foundation”), wrote to us to say:

one wrong tweet… Elon Musk needs to go as CEO of Tesla…

one wrong Mail… Stallman needs to go

who’s next?

what do you think? (maybe the NSA knows already but would like to know as well X-D)

In the case of Stallman, his mail was distorted and he was slandered in the media. We still have this almost-complete list of blog posts and press ‘reports’ about it (mostly perpetuating the lie, but there are some rebuttals among those too). For quite some time we said that Techrights would do a detailed dissection of this slander campaign (once it has reached a halt, including that dissent from a couple dozen GNU people). One IRC regular of ours looked closely at these and examined further what had happened. Yesterday he reported “no new findings” and said he “just searched a little from the MIT angle.”

“There were protesters against MIT president, there are videos in twitterland, so in that context Selam’s timely article really paints itself as a smokescreen that HAD to be done hastily [and] that explains even why she can’t answer to the simple argument why she didn’t try to civilly discuss it with RMS but hastily jumped or should I say stepped forward… that’s also why the last few days seeing Selam’s article from that general (MIT damage control angle) I [was] getting suspicious even for the hot lady photo and in that context the Selam’s really provocative article makes perfect sense… a diversion was needed fast… that’s why I think that essentially RMS was fired from MIT in a pretext that MIT’s board could leverage a little its really bad position… so basically the Selam initiative helped both in damage control and also helped change the weboshphere agenda… and you know what’s more serious than discussing about Epstein MIT laundry…. discussing about a pedophile that was exposed and MIT pushed him out.”

Was Stallman more of a scapegoat than anything? Why did Selam choose VICE to leak E-mails to (to be distorted)? It’s partly owned by a very close friend of Bill Gates, whose MIT scandal had unfolded days if not weeks prior.

We’ve been chatting with Stallman about this and may elaborate with his input in a future part/sequel.

Somebody Needs to Explain to the Linux Foundation That GNU/Linux (or Software Freedom) is Not a Religion

Posted in Bill Gates, Free/Libre Software, GNU/Linux, Microsoft, Patents at 1:37 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Insulting advocates of GNU/Linux is a long tradition at the ‘Super PAC’ of Jim Zemlin

Linux religion

Summary: Long-held beliefs about the employer of Linus Torvalds (and guardian of his trademark) are proven more accurate over time because disdain and ridicule of the long-held beliefs that Software Freedom matters unmask that employer as what it really is (or stands for)

ALONG time ago we wrote about the projection tactics or the boring old smear that caring about computer users is a “religion”. As if it’s illogical and irrational. As if it’s bigoted and may lead to violence (and may therefore need to be stopped or watched closely). We had already seen smears like these in antitrust material. Microsoft, refusing to acknowledge its cult-like behaviour, recklessly accuses others of the same. “Religion” is a weird term to ascribe to/characterise non-religious/atheistic communities, unlike perhaps "cults" (cults do not necessarily have deities).

“Microsoft, refusing to acknowledge its cult-like behaviour, recklessly accuses others of the same.”More than a decade ago we took note of such smears (when failing to discredit the opposition’s argument, compare it to blind faith). Ten years ago we mentioned religion in relation to Mono/.NET, five years ago we said that Both Apple and Microsoft Compare Their Corporate Causes to Religion and Microsoft Fakes 'Charity' and Uses Religious Groups to Acquire Lock-in in the Public Sector; last year we said the same about patent maximalism at the management of the European Patent Office (EPO).

When one compares GNU or Linux (or both) to a religion one is in fact participating in — even bolstering — Microsoft’s attack on Software Freedom.

So Microsoft critics and sceptics are "nutcases", GNU/Linux is a “religion”, and everyone who does not agree with the Linux Foundation is just Donald Trump, according to the Linux.com editor who doesn’t even use GNU/Linux (Macs and Windows).

Some people like to take satires of Richard Stallman (e.g. about religion) to actually twist those jokes as seriousness, thus portraying GNU as a “religion”. They’d do anything to demonise people who speak about human rights and Software Freedom.

“As long as Zemlin protects Power that Power will protect him.”Speaking of Stallman, it’s hard to move on and simply forget about the damage unjustly done to his reputation if not his career as well. The media did a lot of damage after VICE had deliberately distorted what Stallman had said. For over a month this helped distract from the real MIT scandal, which involved Bill Gates, a self-loving cult leader and idol to a lot of people (because he spent two decades paying to media to do this). “Dead men may tell no tales, but the story of Jeffrey Epstein is far from over,” Peter M. D’Abrosca wrote in relation to Bill Gates flying with Epstein. Gates is still on the Microsoft Board of Directors and he flew on Epstein’s infamous plane; his name was disclosed in the flight logs. Bill Gates never denied that he flew the “Lolita Express” with Epstein. The documentary evidence is compelling enough that he cannot deny it (he already lied about other things in relation to Epstein, later to be caught in these lies that some media helped refute). Now he only ‘speaks’ through spokespeople. Here are some flight logs:

Bill Gates flight logs

“Numerous victims claim the plane was set up with a bed and used by Epstein and his guests to rape underage victims,” say sites on the Web (there’s corroboration), but look over there, everybody! Richard Stallman scrutinised the word “assault” as used regarding an accused dead man (his position on the term “assault” in relation to all sexual improprieties is nothing new, there’s a formal reference page about it, and many people agree with him that this term is overused). Guess who got in trouble at MIT. This institution should investigate why Bill Gates paid millions of dollars to Epstein and relayed these to MIT (after he had spent lots of time getting so close to Epstein). Why did he pay? What for? Where’s the elaborate Federal investigation? Where has the Linux Foundation apologised for accepting money from these people? Or from the Pentagon? Nowhere. Because to the Linux Foundation the real problem is the ‘religion’ which is GNU/Linux users, as opposed to Microsoft and Gates. The Linux Foundation worships money, so it shows respect only to those who have money. Remember what the Linux Foundation’s chief said to all of us a decade ago; we need to “respect Microsoft” (even if it helps ICE with illegal detention camps and helps the Army kill innocent people). Just… “respect Microsoft” and not those “nutcases” who question Microsoft’s motives.

Seems awfully probable that the only religion here is shared between the types of Zemlin and Microsoft/Bill Gates. The religion is money. Money and power. As long as Zemlin protects Power that Power will protect him. It's not like he's technically qualified for his role.

Meme: Setting the Record Straight

Posted in Bill Gates, Free/Libre Software, FSF at 12:52 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Did Stallman defend Epstein like the corporate media said?

Richard Stallman’s “Statements about Epstein” when it all began: “I want to respond to the misleading media coverage of messages I posted about Marvin Minsky’s association with Jeffrey Epstein. The coverage totally mischaracterised my statements.

“Headlines say that I defended Epstein. Nothing could be further from the truth. I’ve called him a “serial rapist”, and said he deserved to be imprisoned. But many people now believe I defended him — and other inaccurate claims — and feel a real hurt because of what they believe I said.

“I’m sorry for that hurt. I wish I could have prevented the misunderstanding.”

Did you defend Epstein like the media said? (meme)

Summary: Stallman never defended Epstein. He had called him “Serial Rapist”. It’s Bill Gates who defended Epstein and possibly participated in the same acts.
