Are the rats truly fleeing the ship?
Is Bill Gates going down for good?
Billionaire philanthropist Warren Buffett is resigning from the board of his key charity partner, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It follows the divorce of the ex-spouses and allegations of impropriety against Bill Gates.
In a Wednesday statement, Buffett said his latest $4.1 billion distribution of shares he owns in the holding company Berkshire Hathaway puts him halfway towards delivering on a pledge to give away 99% of those assets and warranted some reflections.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been one of the five principal recipients of Buffett’s financial contributions and the only one not operated by a Buffett family member. Yet, after spending years as an “inactive” trustee on the board, he is resigning.
“I am now resigning from that post, just as I have done at all corporate boards other than Berkshire’s,” he said, pledging his support to the recently appointed CEO of the foundation, Mark Suzman. “My goals are 100% in sync with those of the foundation, and my physical participation is in no way needed to achieve these goals.”
Buffet offered no particular reason for the move and didn’t address the latest publicity problems that his personal friend Bill Gates had suffered from recently. He and Melinda Gates announced their divorce last month after 27 years of marriage. Some media alleged that Bill Gates’ connection to the disgraced late financier and convicted sex predator Jeffrey Epstein had put a strain on their relationship.
Later it was reported that Gates left the board of Microsoft last year after the software company he founded launched a probe into an affair with a female employee back in 2000 and possible impropriety on his part. A spokesman for the billionaire acknowledged the affair, but denied it had any connection with the surprise resignation. Gates also resigned from the board of Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway at the same time.
Of course, this could mean nothing.
Nothing at all…
But if Gates is going down, I seriously doubt it is related to sex scandals, with Jeffrey Epstein or otherwise.
You would have to assume that this man is intelligent enough not to give his wife the rope to hang him with.
That said, there could be a much bigger scandal coming down the line – something related to the coronavirus hoax and the deadly vaccine.
More than likely, Buffett is jumping ship for the same reason his wife jumped ship – the ship is sinking.
Basically, they rolled out Bill Gates as some kind of new overlord, with him openly making statements to the public as if he is in charge of the world. This did not go over well. I’ve not heard of a single person, left or right, who is comfortable with the idea of Gates as an unelected overlord making decisions about how society is managed.
So it may simply be that people are so repulsed by this man that the powers that be have decided that he has to go.
The man carries around a jar of human poop.
Is it his own poop?
Which would be weirder: if it was his own poop, or if it was someone else’s?
I’ll tell you what: even if we’re all still doomed – and make no buts about it, we are all completely doomed – I would rather my doom come without Bill Gates being involved with it.
This man is a repulsive figure.
What’s more, he’s been trying to damage my personal portfolio.
Everyone who tries to damage my personal portfolio ends up doomed.
Even if you believe in the global warming hoax – in which case, you are a moron – Bitcoin does not meet their own claims about changing the weather. In fact, when Bitcoin replaces all banks, energy consumption will go down massively.
I truly hope Bill Gates goes away forever.
We don’t know that he will. There are signs that he could be in the process of being thrown under the bus – but other things could happen.
