New York, NY...Bill Gates at The New York Times Conference, Including Comments on Taxes. Comments in this conversation are the foundation of the push pack from the Warren Campaign. Fascinating conversation...

Interesting that most of his arguments against Trump are stylistic and not substantive.

IE: If he wasn't such an embarrassing jerk I might like him better. At least he isn't crazy like Warren.

Bill Gates Says It Was a “Mistake” to Meet With Epstein 5 Years After He Was Convicted as a Sex Offender
Posted on: 2019-11-07 14:49:12   By: Anonymous
 
Bill Gates says it was a “mistake” to meet with Jeffrey Epstein 5 years after the sex trafficker was convicted of soliciting a minor.

Gates met with Epstein numerous times, including in 2013 while Gates was the chairman of Microsoft and years after Epstein had served almost 13 months in prison for procuring for prostitution a girl below age 18.

Following these meetings, Epstein worked with Gates to funnel $2 million dollars to MIT for unspecified projects, donations that the research lab later tried to cover up.

According to the billionaire philanthropist, his meetings and business dealings with Epstein were just a harmless mistake.

Speaking at The New York Times Dealbook Conference in New York, Gates acknowledged that he helped Epstein get “back in the mainstream” as a result of the meetings.

“My doing that was a mistake,” said Gates.

Gates went on to claim that the investments Epstein promised him did not materialize.

“None of that money ever appeared, and I gave him some benefit by the association, so I made a doubly wrong mistake there,” he said.

    Gates has made many "mistakes" usually fueled by greed.
    Compared to Linux Gates is a scourge to the world . Linux like Tesla wanted to give power to everyone for little, Gates has a profit motive dominating, either his products, or Monsanto, now Bayer. Gates is big on GMO, sees it as a savoir of the world, but you have to buy the technology compared to open pollinated genetics , used for centuries, just improve the crop thru breeding, not a GMO lab using dna guns injecting foreign genes into plants dna.
    The same with the $100 computer project for the 3rd world countries. Linux delivered to the challenge , a $100 lap top for schools in Africa and elsewhere, Gates delivered a $250 computer that had much less memory, and functionality.
    Sadly the UN went with the Microsoft laptop because of bribery by Microsoft.
    The result is 1/3 as many kids got computers, with decreased functionality. Thanks Uncle Bill.
    His "philanthropy" is actually corporate intervention, in humanitarian endeavors.
