    Bill gates divorce

    I honestly don't even have anything to say about this, just wanted to feel out the take of others.

    Bill and Melinda Gates have announced their divorce after 27 years of marriage, saying "we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple".

    "After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage," the pair tweeted.

    They first met in the 1980s when Melinda joined Bill's Microsoft firm.

    The billionaire couple have three children and jointly run the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

    Hmmm, when these ppl do these things, I always think there is some trick they are pulling off and everything in the media is smoke and mirrors. Remember the divorce of Jeff Bezos, and then sometime later the (ex) wife gave a large chunk of money to "charity". Googling for "Mackenzie Bezos charity" yields up several of the results.

    I trust Bill Gates about as much as I trust Satan himself. Every word that comes out of that man's mouth is a straight up lie or some kind of ploy. Its possible that this is just Melinda pulling a typical female move; unsatisfied no matter what she has. However it could be much more. This is one to watch.

    Online comments:

    Seriously: Who announces their divorce in a Twitter statement? They each have it pinned to their profile, reflecting the level of nerd weirdness that this couple represents.
    Melinda Gates is doing a full uninstall on marrying Bill.
    Expect Bill Gates to Go Full Metal Sociopath
    Then there's this:

    He’s the new MacDonald: Bill Gates owns hundreds of thousands of acres across the United States — including 242,000 acres of farmland — making him the country’s top agricultural landholder, according to Eric O’Keefe’s The Land Report.

    Late last year, Eric O’Keefe was researching a mysterious recent purchase of 14,500 acres of prime Washington state farmland. His magazine, The Land Report, tracks major land transactions and produces an annual list of the 100 biggest US landowners.

    Sales of more than a thousand acres are “blue-moon events,” O’Keefe noted, so this one stood out. And Eastern Washington has some of the richest, most expensive farmland in the country. But the purchaser of record was a small, obscure company in Louisiana.

    “That immediately set off alarm bells,” O’Keefe says.

    He assigned his research team to dig a little deeper. Soon they came back with the answer: The Louisiana company was acting on behalf of Cascade Investment LLC, the secretive investment firm that manages most of the huge fortune belonging to Bill Gates.

    You might wanna check that link, BBC seems to have removed the article. Or maybe it's US news not allowed in UK.
    The guy is a fraud, so is his 'philanthropic foundation'. He is no software engineer, he is a creepy salesman/frontman for more powerful people. He buys people and organisations for his/his controllers' wider interests. No doubt related to his purchase of farmland are his plans to make synthetic meat en masse. Synthetic food for synthetic humans. Happy days.
    It's almost as if these people know something about what's coming that most people don't.
    But hey I'm just a conspiracy theorist.

    Are you referring to this link?:

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-56975466

    It worked fine for me here in Ireland, both with and without a VPN. Yes, it does seem to be an international version of the BBC site, but you should also able to get to it via BBC.co.uk.





    Edit:

    When I type www.bbc.co.uk into my address bar it flashes up the U.K. version for a second where I grabbed the above image, then re-directs to www.bbc.com.

    Sorry for the hiatus, couldn't be helped . I do believe its become quite common for women to want to cut their "losses", if I recall she wrote a book sometime back bitching and moaning about how he wasn't pulling his weight doing household chores,it felt unreal hearing such from someone whose greatest achievement could be said to be marrying him, he might have his flaws but if we're honest, he has accomplished a lot and her only claim to fame is having him in her life.

    @unboxxed I did hear of the land purchases but didn't know what to make of it then or now.
    Cheers

    With issues like that you can also try https://web.archive.org/ and type the link in there. They often have snapshots of popular pages saved on their own page. One advantage of that is, even if BBC happens to change/remove anything, you will still be able to access the old versions. And that too regardless of browser or location or any other restrictions.

    That is assuming that it was indeed archived, which popular pages are most of the time, from what I know.

    Hmmm, considering the amount of time he spent on glorifying Bill Gates, I am curious, by his definition of good and bad, is there any globalist billionaire in existence who's "goodness" score is LESS than "bad" score ?

    I am not criticizing, not yet anyways because I dont think I fully (or even partially, at this moment) understood his criteria of good and bad.

    Re: Bill gates divorce

    This looks like a deliberate stunt. A PR campaign to make people start seeing Bill as human, have them gain some sympathy for him.

    TPTB, which he is part of, know he's widely considered as the Devil right now.

    Next up everyone chattering about how much $$ his wife gets. See how they got you to see him in a different light? See how the focus is no longer all the shit he's forcing onto the world?

    More programming for the brainwashed masses.

    One of the big themes of his writings is called Societal Programming, your mind is being bombarded by ideas from everywhere that are blatantly false. A common example is women being portrayed on TV as strong and powerful while men are bumbling idiots.

    In his primary book he notes how often Hollywood casts orphans, poor people and average people as being the hero. Where the villain is often a rich person or corporation.
    Peoples minds are therefore being regularly bombarded by the "rich people are crooks" message.

    I do personally have issues with some of the things Bill Gates has done but not the same as a lot of people.

    Just noticed that Bill Gates Divorce was predicted on here a year ago.

    Yeah, I dont even for a second doubt about the massive presence of propaganda, and agree with that particular propaganda from hollywood.

    I am just curious, very particularly, about Caleb's assessment of Bill Gates, what he thinks constitute as bad score, when he says that Bill Gates has done more good than bad. He also says "atleast prior to vaccine stuff", so I am also mostly interested pre-covid times from the viewpoint of Caleb.

    I'd prefer if you can point me to any of his blog articles where he details this analysis, if he has done it yet. I dont frequent his blog so I am not sure what he writes. I am not really asking you for exact link, you can simply suggest some particular keyword I should search for and I'll do that.

    Also do note that this is not yet a criticism. I dont like to criticize something which I dont have complete information about, and while gathering information, I try my best to clear myself of biases as much as possible (and hope that anybody criticizing ME in the future will help me clear more of it). So I am going on with completely blank mindset.

    Re: Bill gates divorce

    He is a liar and a thief. Both are well documented so it is not slander to state that.

    This divorce is just another ploy, another lie, another way to steal, exactly why we've yet to learn. Leopards can't change their spots, etc.

    The only valid reason to divorce is to hide assets. Talk a judge into awarding her 75% and it can't be touched if/when Bill goes down. Otherwise, just tell wifey, "Here's $10B. Have fun!" "Grown apart", really? They're too ugly for anyone else! They're going to continue to run their crap together? I small a rat. A big fuckin' rat with glasses that's been stealing from all of us for 40+ years!

    Re: Bill gates divorce

    He allegedly created the biggest OS in the world. One look at him tells me yeah right.. look at software genius types, he is nothing like them.
    A guy whose father was active in Planned Parenthood eugenics program. Just another coincidence?
    Now this college dropout wants to sell the world his vaccines. So an alleged software guy is suddenly an expert on health.. wants to sell the world his vaccines.. and some people aren't worried?
    Vaccines he experimented in India and Africa, no doubt where he could get away with lots of failed experiments.
    He has donated *cough bought* a huge number of key people in key pharmaceutical and media companies around the world.
    They weren't donations they were investments.. which will surely come good if he succeeds in his vaccines, he and the companies he has invested in will make trillions.
    Haven't you noticed the lack of official criticism of Kill Gates?
    That alone is enough to tell you he's bad news.
    Or maybe all these people with way above average intelligence are just paranoid at all these coincidences!!
    And now we gon talk about his divorce... n*gga please!

    I don't particularly take any likin' to a man that has deemed protein bug burgers are the future while he purchases large tracts of farm land in a farms to forest campaign like he's earth's noble and righteous deity!
    I agree with everything negatively said about him, his narcissism eclipses the earth! He sees people as a biological cancer that needs culling and gleaning. Everything about the man spells evil.

    Just looked and he doesn't say a lot to be honest. Caleb was my introduction to the manosphere, his primary goal is breaking free of the system in both relationships and business. 98% of what he writes I agree with as he is far more rational and level headed than most. I highly recommend his material Blog - Alpha Male 2.0 (calebjones.com)

    I really admire your honesty on answering my question. Now assuming you are correct and he indeed never really wrote his good/bad analysis in detail, now comes the criticism part.

    He spent a lot of time saying what good Bill Gates did, and how normal people cant hope to match him and not just them but no single individual could match him. Now in the absence of any detailed analysis, that becomes an opinion !! I know he has absolved himself of any responsibility by saying that he can only try his best and he is also human, but its still somewhat funny, that he did it right out of the gate.

    And other than any absence of a detailed analysis, even in that video, I dont remember him even casually listing any bad things Bill Gates has done or might have done. That means its not just an opinion, its a very biased opinion.

    In case he knows about any of those bad things, and deliberately decided to not say it, then its an incomplete information. And that is a very common forms of lying. Not that I think he is doing that, but just mentioning it.

    I do believe (for now) that it is not his intention to spread any form of propaganda, essentially giving him a benefit of doubt. He does look like a smart person, and I did read some of his articles a little bit. They were informative and fun at the same time, so I do plan to read more of that. But I'd like to highlight that the opposite of opinion is not "fact" but a "testimony". Nobody can claim that anything is a "fact", all you can give is what you have observed, which is why a testimony. And in this case, I dont see a testimony on bad side of Bill Gates, or any billionaire in general.

    Of course, my criticism will be invalid if I find out that he did wrote about it and I simply missed it.
