billgatesmonsanto 265x165 Bill Gates Dodges Questions on Why He Owns 500,000 Shares of MonsantoBill Gates is primarily known as the multi-billionaire who created Microsoft, the company behind the most popular computer operating system known as Windows. With this massive wealth, he has retired from leading Microsoft and now instead focuses his money and time on furthering genetically modified technology, geoengineering, experimental vaccinations, and preaching about how Monsanto is the answer to world hunger.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Gates owns 500,000 shares worth 23 million US dollars (or more) of Monsanto stock. The very same company that has been caught running slave rings in Argentina in which workers were forced to work 14+ hours a day while withholding payment, has used their massive finances to fund organizations that literally fake FDA quotes to support GMOs, and of course peddling through GMOs that have been linked to numerous health concerns.

This is not even taking into account the farmer suicides that occur around every 30 minutes due to Monsanto’s failing GMO crop yield bankrupting small-time farmers in India’s notorious ‘suicide belt‘.

Bill Gates Funding Corporations Caught in Child Slave Rings

And if that’s not enough, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has even teamed up with Cargill to pump GMO soy into the third world. Cargill, of course, is the the 133 billion dollar corporation that also has been found in direct violation of human rights laws. Cargill was sued by the International Labor Rights Fund for trafficking children from Mali and forcing them to work on cocoa bean plantations for around 12 to 14 hours each day without pay, food, or sleep. The company even continues to purchase cotton from Uzbekistan, where it is well known that child slave labor is used in the cultivation.

Bill Gates himself even filmed commercials for Monsanto’s GMOs, propping them up as the ‘solution’ to world hunger despite even the United Nations admitting that GMOs cannot fight hunger as effectively as traditional farming. Headed by an entity known as the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD), a team of 900 scientists and researchers studied the issue of world hunger. The results of the major study were very simple: 900 scientists agreed that GMO crops were not the answer to the world hunger, and revealed this in 2008 — long before Bill Gates began claiming that GMOs were the answer while ignoring this readily available information.

Even the Union of Concerned Scientists examined the true yield of GMO crops, only to find that the GM crops do not produce increased yields over the long run — despite their excessive cost and extreme danger to health and environment. The lack of scientific support behind the GMO crops was so startling to the Union that they documented all the details in a 2009 report entitled ”Failure to Yield.”

Watchdog groups have criticized Gates’ support of these corporations after finding out about his massive funding. One such group, a part of the Community Alliance for Global Justice, stated:

“Monsanto has a history of blatant disregard for the interests and well being of small farmers around the world… [This] casts serious doubt on the foundation’s heavy funding of agricultural development in Africa…”

So why is Bill Gates, a man who is propped up by the media as an angel of philanthropy, pumping millions (if not billions) into these operations? And why is he claiming that GMOs can fight world hunger when we know this is not true due to decreased yields and other problems?

I Asked Bill Gates Why

In a unique opportunity to ask Bill Gates himself why he has purchased 500,000 shares of Monsanto behind the scenes (expelled into the news thanks to tax information) and teamed up with Cargill to expand GMOs worldwide, myself and several others asked him ourselves.

Yesterday Gates opened himself up to questions from online users via the social sharing site Reddit, in which he posted an open interview of sorts known as an ‘Ask me Anything’ post. This is essentially an invitation for questions that the subject will answer via text. While I had a large number of questions for Gates, such as if he actually eats GMOs himself, I simply asked him:

“Why did you buy 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock?”

Unsurprisingly, the comment received a large degree of feedback. Users asked Gates to please respond to the question, and several others posed similar variations to Gates that all went unanswered (as to be expected). Some quotes from users in response to my question included:

User Lawfairy replied: “I wish he’d answered this one — to me, this is one of the most curious things about Mr. Gates, whom I otherwise respect as one of the foremost humanists of our generation… Mr. Gates’ relationship with Monsanto is, in my mind, simultaneously the most morally troubling thing about Mr. Gates”

Another user posted (with links intact): “Would you be willing to take some time to give us some insight with your investments in Monsanto? Despite having the headlines of “ending world hunger”, this company has done some despicable things in the past 100 years and I don’t believe they have the public’s best interest in mind. Having a single company or entity trying to “control”, “manipulate” or “own” the world’s food supply, in my opinion, is not the way to end world hunger.”

Another user answered with: “Because he is supporting the Bilderberg group!”

None of these received a response nor did the many others I could not include in this article. The answer, it seems, is to bring this topic to the mainstream. The very same mainstream that seems to think Bill Gates is some sort of philanthropic super star that can do no evil. I am opposed to all wrongdoing at every level, and I find it absolutely disturbing that someone funding the GMO agenda and slave-labor-linked companies has been met with applause.

    @ Jason Tweed…..Do your homework before promoting Monsanto's chief poison glyphosate and trusting the FDA and USDA. If it's so safe to use this herbicide why then is the world's honeybee population diminishing. Why will they not allow for GMO labeling on consumer foods if it's so safe. Why are countries around the world stopping the export of American beef fed GMO's. Wht are super weeds emerging after using these poisons in our ground. You sir need to do your homework.

    Not answering a question on a reddit ama is hardly "dodging a question" you sorry excuse for a journalist. Bill Gates has saved roughly 6 million lives in third world countries since 2007 through his philanthropic donations and organizations, arguably more than any other person in human history. I'm not standing up for his investment in monsanto and cargill because they do suck (although there has been no evidence of these investments after 2010) I'm simply stating the fact that he has dedicated his life and the majority of his wealth to helping the poor. He's a strong proponent of GMO's because he knows it's the only way we will be able to sustain global food demands in the not so distant future. Crazy conspiracy theorists like you are an embarrassment to the progressive movement and I put you in the same category as religious extremists on the right who blindly follow other irrational sources around the web, all quoting each other, but never looking towards the experts for the facts. Here's a relevant ted talk that puts it into perspective…not that any of you nuts will actually watch it:

    • Colonel Phew

      If you think that supporting this:… is a "good" thing, I think you might have to think again.

      What these people are doing is pure insanity to me, not 'philanthropy'. They may "feel good" about rescuing fly encrusted starving babies today, but they are just perpetuating the misery to biblical proportions in the future. That is just the cold, brutal fact of it. It is not at all pleasant, but for goodness sake, it is time to engage the brain a bit more instead of the heart.

      Relying on patentable foods, where food will become a new form of currency and control is obviously a sinister move too, unless you are in favour of slave populations perpetually under the thumb of giant corporations. And that is even ignoring the much debated health issues and dangers of meddling with the food chain in this way.

      Maybe one way of "sustaining global food demands" in the future is to not let already unsustainable populations (like Africa) QUADRUPLE by the end of the century.

      By "helping the poor" you and Bill Gates are just creating 3 Billion more poor people to deal with later. The "West" will have halved their demographic in the meantime and as such there will be fewer golden geese of leading scientists and 'charity donators' to lay the eggs of their sustenance when it all goes disastrously wrong – which it no doubt will.

    Anthony's post on reddit accumulated only 100 upvotes. The comments that rose to the top were around 2000-4000, and were the ones that Bill Gates most likely saw. If you are at all familiar with reddit, you would understand why it is more likely that Bill Gates didn't see the comment.

    The Gates Foundation, non taxed, of course, use their big untaxed bucks to promote smoking bans, which give the Johnson and Johnson Company stock value quite a boost! Might want to see how many shares of J&J they are sitting on! Kaiser and Clinton Foundations in on this action also. They, all three, actually fund lobbying for this legislation all over the world. J&J's worthless patches and gums are doing quite well!

    • beduke

      I think Gates and the others believe sincerely that they are trying to save human lives and improve the human condition. It just may turn out that the means they've chosen do exactly the opposite. Falling crop yields and crop failures show that the 'science' behind GMO foods from Monsanto is non-science, in that the research is being done as a giant beta test on the Earth and humanity, and the results are just beginning to trickle in. While the effect on Monsanto's bottom line is positive, at least to date, the benefit to farmers and consumers is dubious at best – - perhaps a short-term perceived benefit followed by lifetimes of polluted genes, crops, soils. I think the solution to world hunger, aside from fairer distribution, is to have less mouths to feed rather than an ever-expanding, environmentally unsustainable program of endless growth – - a scenario that is inevitably going to end in a massive population crash anyway.

With this massive wealth, he has retired from leading Microsoft and now instead focuses his money and time on furthering genetically modified technology, geoengineering, experimental vaccinations.

    If you re-read this paragraph in itself you can the problem right away…micro(soft), meaning smallest units and then you've got a money man using it to generate experimentation's that have affects on a Macrolevel. Interesting isn't it? Why not invest in a Library, rather than technology?

    Bill Gates said it in public on a program called "TED"….'to keep the people of the world from starving , they'll have to " cull the herd " By the way , March first marks the day that the united states corporation aka Washington , District of Colombia , a city state not part of the United States of America will attempt to pay off the 16 trillion unpayable national debt with the 1 trillion platinum coins §:-)……it also marks the day that no foreign country is going to buy any United States corporation treasury bonds … not even the 6 month ones … prices of commodities will instantly double ….

      More needless panic and paranoia. Things may fall from the sky, but that doesn't mean the sky is falling.

  • Susan

    He saw an opportunity to build his ginormous ego and jumped on the band wagon. He's more interested in owning and ruling the world than to stop and find out who created the world and gave him so much! He will self destruct.

  • small farmer

    Until food is removed from the commodities markets and governments don't determine how many acres of which crops can be produced, there will always be food shortages. The only growing method that promotes longevity is growing organically with diversified crops. The methods introduced around WW 2 cause salinization, nutrient depletion, soil erosion, and pollution due to 'agricultural runoff'. As a small farmer, I am very concerned about the direction Monsanto and the feds are taking. if you have Netflix, watch "Farmageddon" to see the issues. Monsanto sues organic farmers. The farmer has to remove the acreage from organic certification and destroy the GMO crop to maintain certification. Why do organic farmers have nearly 300 pages of documentation to provide for certification and chemical farmers don't have to keep records of the poisons they use? Is it because the fomer VPof Monsanto is head of the FDA and they have execs managing the USDA? The FDA does not do independent testing for any products. They rely solely upon the lab tests done by companies.

  • Whoever

    Let's start with this: No technology is inherently good or evil. While I absolutely hate Monsanto for their business "practices" which I can at best describe as criminal (and still seems to be letting them of very lightly), you have to admit that at least, theoretically and if conducted with proper oversight / multiple independent public testing and vetting, GMO's have great potential in mitigating food scarcity (re-reading the last few words I could swear that came out of some Agenda 21 presentation :)). As for being the solution to worldwide food scarcity that is BS. That solution lies in more logical supply chains, urban (or why not rural) vertical farming, community-oriented farming in some areas, and maybe with great reluctance and testing some GMO crops, and not pesticide enhanced varieties (greater economic and environmental costs, not to mention health concerns). As for Bill Gates I have mixed feelings, as I've always had, though I think he genuinely believes or has been made to believe that these actions are helping the world (after all when so many "respectable" professors, journalists, business "captains" say the same thing you might be inclined to believe them). Alas some of the greatest evils mankind has been subjected to have come from the best intended individuals. Or maybe he is just criminally complicit in a "ends justify the means kind of way".

    • justice

      Look,everyone knows that u don't need to use fertilizers or any chemically generated products to grow food!These products were put on the market because after the 2nd world war, 1st world powers didn't know what to do to get rid of their war chemicals so they came up with this ingenuise idea to lie to the world and introduce these "Miracle Fertilizers" that had the answer to maximise a better yielding of crops!If you know anything about how the MARKETING world works :you create the problem & then you come up with the SOLUTION! As far as PHARMACY industries are concerned the more you get SICK the more money they make! Read up on it you'll see they work HAND IN HAND! More POWER to my PEOPLE who stand up against ANYONE that screws around MOTHER NATURE!!!Like we need to make matters worst let's try & find real lasting solutions to the health state of the planet & the people who are on it. SCREW how much billionaire "GURUS" want to make a quick buck!!!Personally I will keep on PRAYING to see all those that take GOOD & descent hard working FOLKS Health for a JOKE!!! They make me so sick to think they have the right to decide whats right for me & my children, Keep educating the MASSES people we need to KEEP THE FIRE OF TRUTH BURNING,peace.

  • Shadow

    Does anyone seriously think Bill Gates wouldn't do this kind of stuff? He goes to Bilderberg meetings every year, is a billionaire, and pretty much jacked the basics of the Apple Macintosh and called it Windows. He made his money off the sweat of others, so why wouldn't he support sweatshops around the world. He is a piece of crap living in a bunker off of a lake.

  • Jason Tweed

    Unfortunately, you're completely wrong about Bill Gates.

    He is a big believer, as many scientists are, that GMO crops are critical to our future. Scientifically speaking they have much higher yields and there is no evidence that they cause any health problems or risk. There's lots of rhetoric but no science supporting claims that GMO are bad for you.

    I do dislike Monsanto, but not because they create GMO crops. I hate them because they have perverted the patent system and squashed the small farmer in the process. My problem with them is that farmers aren't allowed to use seeds of the plants they grow because Monsanto enforces their patents.

    Unfortunately, Microsoft is one of the most well known companies for patent squatting, so it should be to no surprise that Bill Gates endorses and owns stock in this company.

    I think that Monsanto and Microsoft are both guilty of excessive efforts to monopolize their industries, and their actions are unethical.

    The reason Gates dodged your question wasn't to avoid embarrassment. He dodged it because, telling you why he owns 500,000 shares would be an SEC violation. Major shareholders aren't allowed to encourage others to buy stock. They have the ability to manipulate the market. That would be like asking Warren Buffett for stock tips on something he owns.

    I'm not saying Mr. Gates is a saint, but saying he dodged your question because of GMO links and child labor links is a fallacy.

    Websites like yours twist the truth, and that's why you have no credibility. Do research, true scientific empirical study, then have it validated and you'll change people's minds. Right now all you're doing is tossing words to small-minded sheep.

    Unfortunately, no one who counts will start listening until you get your facts straight. If you want to be heard, do your homework then have someone else double check your work.

      You are a retard, who would like to keep fooling himself into thinking that these great leaders of soceity would NEVER do anything to hurt us common folk!! No they love us unconditionally!! HA HA! Wake up you are the SMALL MINDED SHEEP who would prefer to keep fooling hiimself into a false sense of security instead of opening your mind to the real truth!! Here I give you a clue, these people are SATAN WORSHIPPERS who are seeking to control every aspect of our lives and are slowly poisoning us all!!!

      WAKE THE FUCK UP!!! It's people like you with your arragance of thinking you know it all that helps to strenghten this massive wall of ignorance that we all see in most unaware people!! And as for scientific evidence in relation to GMO's, did you even read the article?? It has links to loads of scientific studies that proves that GMO's are poison, in rats it has been shown that they become sterile and stupid by the third generation after a GMO only diet!! Anyone with half a brain cell could deduuce anyways that nature knows best and we should not be messing around with these crops which have been around long before us!! This is suicide!!

      WAKE UP!!! The great philanthropist??? Bill does not care about any of us 'SPICS' he just wants to further his/their agenda. He is pure evil!! Did you see his Ted presentation about how the biggest problems facing us today are overpopulation and one of the besat ways to change this is Vaccines!!
      And i quote ruffly : 'You see, I really love vaccines!'. He is a poison evil spec and is part of many which much be eradicated from this planet in order to save it!!! Get educated on the REAL situation, open your mind and then try and spout your slanderous comments!!!

      It is sites like these which keep us aware people sane in this hellhole cause we know there are more of us out there who relly understand the situation!! Don't worry guys are time is coming and we shall rise and pulverise these fools with God as our sole commander!!

      Be WEll!!

      Jason-I believe you are either amazingly uninformed, or a shill. I only hope it is uninformed. Those of us who HAVE been studying know what Monsanto and Bill Gates are capable of. Those of us who HAVE been studying know the detrimental effects of GMOs. If you look you too can find a massive amount of documentation world wide regarding what they are doing to the health of people. Even doctors who have been through the manipulated educational system are prescribing a non GMO diet for folks with certain types of issues. It is only a matter of time before the entire segment of the population that is eating this garbage is powerfully affected, begins to sicken and then passes their issues on to their children. Farmers in South America have already won suits against Monsanto for the deformation of their children, just for starters. You think WE are uninformed? Um, in a word, NO.

    • Rich

      Excellent and logical reply. Thx.

    • Judy Hayner

      There is PLENTY of science to show that exclusive growth of GMO crops – crops that are created solely to withstand a particular kind of chemical, normally a form of glyphosate or RoundUp – do NOT have greater yields than conventional crops. Check with the Union of Concerned Scientists, they've plenty of unbiased info on that. The conventional LIE is that GMOs have increased yields. Perhaps at the very outset, they did. But check this for more info. "UCS expert Doug Gurian-Sherman released in March 2009. Despite 20 years of research and 13 years of commercialization, genetic engineering has failed to significantly increase U.S. crop yields."

      In fact, it recently came to light that fully HALF US crops now have RoundUp resistant weeds – this info according to a new report from the agribusiness research consultancy Stratus.. Weeds growing every year. Instead of REDUCING reliance on herbicides, which is what Monsanto promised, the use of GMO crops has REQUIRED MORE AND MORE RoundUp (an herbicide). Also more and more PESTICIDES, despite some GMO (corn, cotton) containing Bt in EVERY CELL, which is an insecticide that basically causes the insects digestive system to fail. Of course, we don't believe this will affect PEOPLE. However, Bt cotton has been known in India to KILL sheep (traditionally, sheep were allowed to graze cotton fields after harvest, but with Bt crops, this is no longer possible!).

      Perdue ag scientist Don Huber has studied the affect of glyphosate on the soil, and the results are alarming. The product kills beneficial flora in the soil (kind of like an antibiotic does to the human digestive system, opening us up to candida overgrowth). He has even identified a new pathogen that has arisen around glyphosate use. In Argentina, there are now protections, hard won mostly by a woman activist, who even faced attempted murder, which bans spraying of glyphosate near homes. Children were being born with deformities, lots of reproductive problems, cancers, etc. These are powerful chemicals, and we must NOT underestimate their consequences!!! Does anyone remember DDT, and how no one thought that was harmful? When I was a kid in Wisconsin I NEVER saw a single EAGLE. Well, they are now alive and well everywhere there, and moving south into Northern Illinois, where I see them frequently along the river in my town! We do not KNOW all the problems associated with these chemicals for a LONG time. They have, however, found Bt in the blood of pregnant mothers and babies! Now that glyphosate is no longer working as an herbicide, they have, already, developed GMOs that withstand 2,4-D. While this has been used in conventional agriculture, it is so hazardous it has been used less – kind of last resort. 2,4-D is half the formula of AGENT ORANGE. And consider that glyphosate (RoundUp) use INCREASED instead of decreased once plants were "resistant" to it, what increased use of 2,4-D will DO to our population????

      So, I applaud your patent concerns.

    • Dee

      Over here in the UK there's a lot of awareness of the risks of GMO foods.We are going to fight to keep this frankengarbage out of our food chain.The French study GMO/cancer row among other studies.countries that OUTRIGHT BAN this stuff,Peru,Poland,Algeria,Ireland,Saudi Arabia etc tells all.Tony Blair tried to push this crap on us when he was in office when at the same time insisted on organic only produce used in the House of Commons eateries.We have no confidence in this 'stuff'.

      HI Jason
      So can you tell me if the seeds Monsanto are selling can still germinate, or has that been GMOd out of them. Sounds like their not looking to fix world hunger. Gates needs to take him vaccines and put them where the sun doesnt shine. If he wants to help he could always get people clean water and help them build farms to grow crops and then they can be self sufficient. The people on this site have done a lot of homework and Gates just doesnt ring true. I suppose you have looked at the Bill Gates population control utube.

      "Then why did the employees at Monsanto want gmo foods taken from their own cafeteria"

      The link you provided *does not say that*.

      The link says that a catering company that provided food to Monsanto *and many other companies* stopped providing GMOs to *all their customers*.

      It does not say anything about any Monsanto employee wanting GMOs removed from their cafeteria!

  • MortenB

    The rumour say that Bill has a secret gigantic farm somewhere in US where everything is grown organic without use of any poison, factory made fertilizer, GMO, nothing. Natural only, with strict check/security on what comes in from outside. And everyone working there have to comply a professional secrecy agreement. Even chemtrails is not allowed above it…

    Food from this farm is shipped to Bill and his elite friends…

    Secret ? Well, people working there also goes to bars.

    Does this not fit well into workers at Monsanto who refuse to eat at company canteen when they started with GMO ?

    When I know this living in Norway, should not this be common knowledge in US ?

    • Bigpicture

      It is Norway I believe or Sweden that have the huge underground seed bank of just about every indigenous variety known. That is a forward thinking government because when these GMO outfits have destroyed the worlds food supply, and we are faced with starvation. Everything GMO will have to be destroyed and start over again, at least original genetics will be available to start over.

      The US government is in bed with the GMOs otherwise how could they have gamed the patent system to cover the self replicating nature of life. They did not invent DNA nor did they invent how DNA works, all they did was modify it, which was always OBVIOUS that this could be done, it was always OBVIOUS how it could be done. It was just that the technology to do it was only available recently. (within the last 15 years or so) As was also the technology to decode the human genome etc. How the patent got extended to cover the resulting product (which still operates by natures methods only) and not just to cover the modification process only, could not have happened without gaming the patent system to enable the the GMO companies to legally OWN the results of NATURES self replication process. Got to be the MOST CORRUPT thing on Earth.
