The truth about Bill Gates

"They may have grown up in dirt floor shacks, but they had a comic book paid for, by people like Bill Gates! I HATE YOU BILL GATES, I HATE YOU!"
I've done quite a bit of research on this POS, which I'll share in this topic.

Let's start with who he is. The media like to tell us that this was an ordinary boy whose parents where teachers (that's what I read as a kid) who was a college drop out who made it by himself, to give us the idea that the American dream still makes sense. In reality this boy came from an elite American family, just like Bush. His family consists of bankers. His maternal grandfather is James Willard Maxwell, who had a million dollar trust fund, because his father had founded Seattle's National City Bank. http://philip.greenspun.com/bg/
It's not such a big risk to quit college and found your own company when you have million dollar trust fund to fall back on is it?
His father is William H. Gates, Sr. This man was a wealthy corporate lawyer and on the board of directors of, believe it or not, Planned Parenthood, the organisation dedicated to ridding the world of the "human weeds", as Margaret Sanger liked to call them. http://www.pbs.org/now/transcript/transcript_gates.html
As you can see, Bill Gates has grown up in a circle of eugenicists and other elitists.

Let's look at his charity now, because we've always been told that Bill Gates made a lot of money because he was such a talented young man who liked to work with computers and decided to use is to help the poor people. Well, as Alex explains in the video, these foundations are in essence just tax shelters. What does Bill Gates use his foundation for? Among other things, buying up shares in oil companies and pharmaceutical companies, like Merck, the company you may remember because it has given us Polio Vaccines "contaminated" with cancer causing viruses: http://www.aliveandwell.org/html/the_bigger_picture/Bill_Gates_Philanthropist_or_Polluter.html
With stocks in these companies the foundations that don't pay taxes (so you and me can't compete with them) can vote on corporate policies.
And, like Alex mentioned, he likes to buy up independent newspapers, thus controlling the media, without us able to compete because unlike Bill Gates we have to pay taxes:
http://www.theinquirer.net/en/inquirer/news/2006/08/22/bill-gates-lends-cash-to-buy-newspapers
But, how about his real charitable activities, like saving the poor children? Well, read what he has to say himself:
http://www.rockefeller.edu/pubinfo/news_notes/121500a.html
Quote
He also praised the Rockefeller family's century of philanthropy, saying, "It seems like every new corner we turn, the Rockefellers are already there. And in some cases, they have been there for a long, long time."
You may remember the Rockefeller foundation for funding Hitler's eugenicist scientists like Mengele:
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2003/11/09/ING9C2QSKB1.DTL
Or perhaps you may know them for funding the Chinese government owned factories that produce the drugs used in China's eugenic one child policy, in which people which dyslexia are prohibited from having children: http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn?pagename=article&node=&contentId=A53938-2000Oct11
These are the kind of people Mr. Gates apparently looks up to. And he tries to follow their example, by funding the same organization his father once worked for(http://www.worldmag.com/articles/12056), and the Rockefellers helped create(http://www.lifeissues.net/writers/tay/tay_04robthecrad.html).
Because of this the Gates' are now so respected they get to rub shoulder with other self made men *cough* like David Rockefeller and Ted Turner (who wants to reduce the worlds population to 200-300 million people, has five children and also approves of China's one child policy) at special "philantrophic" events: http://www.carnegie.org/sub/awardees/album.html
Another big activity that the Gates Foundation is involved with is Gavi, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, more accurately described as the Global Association for rich white old men who want to keep poor women from having children by sterilizing them through vaccines. David Ayoub excellently covers this issue in this video from 56:40 onwards:

Next up, tearing down the myth that Bill Gates is feeding the poor:

I'm sure you've all heard this. Bill Gates is feeding starving kids in Africa (the ones who where born despite all his efforts). This is for example, how BBC puts it: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/somerset/4698309.stm
There are a few problems with this idea though. First of all, the fact that Bill Gates has stocks worth millions of dollars in a company called Pacific Ethanol:
http://www.greenbang.com/3357/bill-gates-sheds-biofuels-stake/
Biofuels are responsible for the global famines that are currently going on:
http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_christop_080410_the_great_biofuel_fa.htm
Another problem is that Bill Gates is funding the use of GMO technology to supposedly solve the famines in the 3rd world. In reality, GMO crops have been proven to cause lower yields:
http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/green-living/exposed-the-great-gm-crops-myth-812179.html
The difference is a yield of 10 percent. In India the GMO crops performed even worse:
http://www.greens.org/s-r/33/33-04.html  
But it gets worse. There is evidence that GMO crops could be a trojan horse, that will get worse each consecutive generation:
http://www.i-sis.org.uk/meltdown.php
Could it be that Bill Gates knows what he is doing with these GMO crops? Could it be that he knows this is currently already reducing yields across the planet adding to the famine caused primarily by biofuels? Could it be that he even knows there is a chance that this will go horrible wrong,  causing famines even worse than the ones we are currently seeing, because of a "genetic meltdown"? There is strong evidence Bill Gates knows that this could happen. A lot of you already know about this, thing called the doomsday vault, you're well informed, and it's been on the news. The doomsday vault is a vault in the arctic circle, where the seeds of non genetically modified plants are stored, in case a "disaster would happen" that would wipe them out. For some reason, only plant seeds are stored. There is apparently no need to store the genetic material of certain animals that are on the verge of going extinct, no, this is only for food crops, because apparantly there is a great chance a disaster will happen to these crops:
http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=7529
And you guessed it, this project is being funded by the Gates foundation and the Rockefeller foundation.

I think Bill is trying to feed the poor.

If you set up the infrastructure and provide the food, there is immense profit to be gained in the future if Africa grows economically as a continent, which I'm sure it will with enough investment.

The problem is, Africa is not supposed to grow according to plans layed out by the British government. Follow this link, open Dimensions, military and click on risks:
http://www.dcdc-strategictrends.org.uk/viewdoc.aspx?doc=1
This is what it says:
Quote
Persistent African Instability.  Factors such as famine, environmental and demographic stress, endemic poverty, widespread HIV/AIDS and other diseases will endure in Africa, leading to a persistent risk of conflict in much of the Continent.  This will not only stifle regional economic growth, but may actually reverse such development.  The consequences, typically uncontrolled mass migration, transnational organized crime and increasing diaspora populations, may transmit risk beyond the region, particularly to Europe.  Significant containment of these consequences may be required, especially in the Mediterranean, if Europeans in particular are to remain ‘masters of the clock’.
Africa is supposed to stay poor forever, to allow multinational corporations to rape the continent and have non-governmental organizations like the UN and the African Union govern the continent. At best the continent will stay in it's current state according to the plans, but it may even slip back into complete chaos.
Russia and China will be destroyed as well.

First off, I fail to see how anything that happens in Africa affects China or Russia. They barely trade with Africa. It's basically an isolated continent.

Now, as for Africa being destined to fail, that goes against the UN development goals (however, they have never been accurate in the past). But apart from that, with the right investment, the continent can succeed. So I think Bill Gates is trying to help the continent and be immensely rich at the same time.

I do not subscribe to the fact that this document is the British government telling the world that this is going to happen, and they are going to do this to Africa deliberately. I think this is just their prediction based on current progress.

But READ THE TITLE of the document. It says 2007-2036.. No one can predict what will happen in that space of time. So again, Mr. Gates and others can become immensely rich if they provide the infrastructure, and then watch as Africa grows. Bill, Warren and co. will basically become the David Rockefeller of Africa. They will own the entire economy, yes, but uplift the continent at the same time.

Now, whether Gates will succeed or not is another matter. He may have $50 billion, but that isn't even enough to feed the continent for a few weeks.

---

But BY GOD, their predictions in the "Dimensions" section are astonishing. I mean, they clearly have ground for making such predictions, and they are some of the most dire and negative predictions ever. I think I'm going to make a new thread just highlighting the amazement of this.

They don't want Africa to grow, that's the whole point of their activities. Have you looked at what GAVI, which Bill Gates is a member of, is doing in the 3rd world? Population control through vaccines. In tests up to 20% of the vaccines they tested contained b-hcg, this means the young women will forever be incapable of having children. Population control is meant to prevent the 3rd world from growing in power. This is all because the Anglo-American elite want a unipolar New World Order, a unified world that is governed out of Europe, and perhaps to a lesser degree out of North America. Bill Gates would be risking his life if he tried to develop the continent of Africa, because they will never allow that to happen. Do you agree with me that the elite want to keep the 3rd world poor?

It really depends on who you mean by "elite".

You see, I think it's clear that the governmental establishments would like to keep it that way, since they so blatently have done for the past 100s of years. The US has taken CLEAR, unambiguous steps throughout the 1950s especially to indebt Africa for life. It's detailed in John Perkins' book, "Confessions of an Economic Hitman", which I strongly suggest that everyone read.

However, I don't see why Bill Gates and others have to necessarily be a part of the governmental establishment, just because Bill is rich. In fact, Microsoft has been faced with countless anti-competition fines from the EU and US, so I'm absolutely certain that Bill is not a part of that same establishment.

I think Bill is doing this for both humanitarian and financial needs. Remember, starting a charity allows a lot of tax-free income to be stored. So make no mistake, Bill is looking for a lot of money from this - probably more so than he is looking to help people - but I certainly don't think he's trying to kill or hold down Africans. That would not be profitable for him.

As for the sterilisation, you can easily argue that population growth, with disease and all, is out of control in Africa, and that sterilising some groups is - despite rather evil in some ways - a way of helping the region grow, and not be plagued by the problems of vast overpopulation (and it is a problem. Don't call me a eugenicist. And neither is Bill. He's only sterilising, not killing).

That's right. And not just in Africa, India as well. People would starve to death while food was rotting away in warehouses, because the government was not allowed to hand it out thanks to the World Bank and other international lenders.

They sometimes have these trials. Rockefeller had this happen to him as well. This broke up standard oil, but this was all just a show, because he still had a controlling share in all these companies. I think the main reason for this is to pacify the public, and ofcourse the EU needs money as well. Neelie Kroes is responsible for the fines given by the EU. She attends the Bilderberg meetings, just like Bill Gates' wife has done, so I think that's pretty strong evidence they are both part of the same establishment.

I don't understand why Bill Gates would be after more money. People like Bill Gates are after power, and money is just a means to an end. His friend Warren Buffet gave 36 billion dollar to the Bill Gates foundation, for example, and Bill Gates himself gave billions to the United Nations population fund. They're not greedy men. Believe me, if all we faced were a bunch of men who wanted to make more money, I would not be in this movement, I'd be spending my time doing something I enjoy. In fact, Bill Gates did not enjoy being the richest person in the world, because of the publicity he got from it: http://www.theinquirer.net/en/inquirer/news/2006/05/04/bill-gates-wishes-he-wasnt-so-rich
These people prefer to be in the shadows, like the Rothschilds. Ofcourse Gates is nowhere near as powerful as these people, they allowed him into the club, the same way most of the billionaires where allowed in.

Don't call me a eugenicist. And neither is Bill. He's only sterilising, not killing).
Eugenics does not necesarily involve killing. What we saw in Nazi Germany was a form ofeugenics that most of the eugenicists frowned upon. America was one of the first, if not the first nation where eugenics was exercised, and it did not involve killing people, it involved sterilizing women. Bill Gates and his father are eugenicists. They carry out population control programs on the poor, that makes them eugenicists. By the way overpopulation is no problem in Africa. Take a look at this map:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bc/Population_density.png
Then tell me why you would try to solve overpopulation in Africa. If there is any form of overpopulation (which I strongly doubt there is) it could be better solved by convincing the obese Americans to stop clogging their arteries with red meat.

Yes, this is what they have planned for us. They can't say things in public like "We're going to turn China into the next Somalia" or "Neutron bombs will be used", so they "predict" that this could happen, and ofcourse it'll be the bad guys that'll use them, and perhaps that's true, because the bad guys are always put into power by us, the good guys. Good idea to make a thread about this. I've posted this document here a lot of times, but most people here do not seem to see it's significance, so I hope you'll have more succes.

But do You use Windows ?

How many people are Reading or Contributing to his thread using Windows OS ?

Perhaps if you want to really hurt B.Gates, perhaps you should not use or buy Microsoft Products. Once you have made the transition and escaped from Windows hell you will be able to speak with the authority of direct expirence.

Make a noise about it at work or any were else appropiate. Pick issues that the organistation has stated are priority. Forinstance issues like Maintaince Costs, Security Costs, Virus infestations. Just be sure that you have a rock solid arguement and are ready and informed to tackle the opposing arguements. Make sure you never loose your cool, becuase people will resist the idea with rationalisations. An example would be that microsoft techies always insist that "Mac gets virus too"... which is simply factualy incorrrect in the real world, about as likely as getting struck by lightning.

I'm not a yuppie, and I use Windows XP Home edition. Why?

Because I tried Umbuntu Linux and while it was good for basic web surfing, picture scanning, uploading, and the like, I wanted to do more, like video making and uploading, as well as playing games. In short, all the things that people take for granted when they use a computer. Unfortunately, Linux doesn't let you do that. Not at all. If you want to use a Windows program to do those things on Linux, you must have the emulation program Wine-a pain in the ass to set up and use (that compiling bullshit again!) So, I spent my tax return on a copy of Windows XP Home, and have never looked back.

I'd love to use Linux, don't get me wrong, but all the compiling that needs to be done gets on one's nerves. And compatibility issues (related to the compiling) also are quite tiresome. So, until I find a way to partition the hard drive, I'll guess that I'll have to be a slave of Microsoft.

To the people in this thread defending Bill Gates: He's a genius, bread to help further the needs of the New World Order by his family. He's been the little guy controlling the big picture his entire life. If you haven't read up on the history of Bill Gates monopolizing the internet and software, please do so. He's a bully by nature, just in a more secretive way, and trust me,MULTI- billionares DONT CARE ABOUT STARVING KIDS IN AFRICA.

 He's always been a social outcast, asking the first girl he ever dated "what is your SAT score?" No, not because he's just a nerdy kid asking her. Because he doesn't want to be embarassed by dating a lemming who doesn't score a perfect 800 in math. He believes he's superior to everyone else, and has run the course of microsoft that way since its inception. Its quite obvious with such a mentality, bill gates caring for starving kids in Africa is quite unlikely.

Bill Gates is evil, you can just see it in his fake smile what he really thinks- he may be a genius, but he certainly isnt a good actor. He dropped out of Harvard because he knew his math scores weren't the best in the entire school, and thats how his ego works, he needed to compensate for that by creating microsoft.

I'm a zippie (techno-hippie) and I've never bought my windows os. I've never bought a computer, I've built all of them by myself. Getting the service packs cracked was a pain in the ass at first, but now when I know how to do it, it's easy as stealing a lollipop from a child. Vista? Nah, dont even want it. Xp will do it for me for now. Maybe in a year or two. Btw, you can use Boot Magic and install both windows & linux...

There isn't really a good alternative to Windows. Linux is too limited, in terms of what software you can get with it, as well as the sound system and flash system being very poor. Bill is going to rich regardless of whether you buy his OS, so that isn't the way to protest.

But as I've outlined in this thread, I think Bill is being genuinely humanitarian in his efforts (and of course also trying to make obscene amounts of money at the same time.)

There isn't really a good alternative to Windows. Linux is too limited,

That used to be true, but now you have stuff like Ubuntu and Xubuntu and cross-platform software like Firefox and Thunderbird and BitTornado and OpenOffice and AbiWord. On my customized Xubuntu installation, I have all my laptop hardware drivers installed as well as VirtualBox and Rhythmbox (as good as iTunes, IMO), and I've even included links to Infowars.com and Prisonplanet.com in my XFCE Applications menu (just a matter of adding the launchers in /usr/share/applications).

Its not Rocket Science

When you run Windows and go online you have no real security.

I think that should be the official startup sound for all versions of Windows.

Playing God seems to be the passtime of the wealthy.

Being a god seems to be one of their main desires i.e. to have power over life and death, and even creation.

After all, the Great Work aims to "perfect that which was left imperfect".  So they must believe they can do better than the Creator.

The sound system in Linux is easily messed up and there are no good video editors. If it weren't for those two things, I'd be using it. I can't tell you how annoying it was not even being able to edit basic videos.

The only video editors I know on for Linux are AviDemux and LIVES. AviDemux is sort of limited, but LIVES seems pretty full-featured.

Bill Gates, a genius???? I dont think so. He is a dirty little opportunist who was is the right place at the right time.
See the histories of CP/M AND QDOS.
He bought the rights to QDOS for 50k keeping the IBM deal secret from the QDOS developers. Re marketing QDOS as MS DOS.
Microsofts unofficial company motto is Embrace, Extend and Extinguish. Embrace the opposition, Extend their software with microsoft code and when you have the market you Extinguish the opposition.
See various or countless slashdot articles about Bill Gates and microsoft.
