(Natural News) The fourth richest person in the world and the top financier of the World Health Organization, Bill Gates, has silently become the biggest farmland owner in the United States. The man himself is the farthest thing from a farmer, however. He couldn’t even lift a bale of hay, let alone grip the two strands of bailing twine together with his bare hands.
Nevertheless, Gates now owns tens of thousands of acres of farmland across eighteen states. He owns the most farmland in Louisiana – a stunning 69,071-acre portfolio. As if this wasn’t enough, he owns another 47,927 acres in Arkansas, and 20,588 acres in Nebraska, and has a stake in a 25,750-acre swath of land on the west side of Phoenix, Arizona. So why is Bill Gates buying up farmland across America?
Bill Gates and the UN’s agricultural experiments
Bill Gate’s investment vehicle, Cascade Investments, has gone to great lengths to conceal his large farmland purchases, and have tried to cover their tracks with each monstrous deal. One of the deals was a $171 million acquisition concealed by an LLC with two employees in a metal-sided building down a dirt road off the Bayou Teche.
Bill Gates prides himself in philanthropy, so why would he be directing his personal investment vehicle to invest in farmland across the country and keep it a secret? In 2008, his personal foundation invested $306 million to direct the farming operations of small holder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation used the grant money to support high-yield, “sustainable” agriculture.
Ten years later, Bill launched Gates Ag One to advance these efforts. Now, Cascade Investments coordinates with a subsidiary, Cottonwood Ag Management, which is part of the Leading Harvest network, a nonprofit that promotes sustainable agriculture. The Harvest network now represents 2 million acres in 22 states and another 2 million acres across seven other countries. The Sustainable Agriculture Working Group is behind this transformation of agriculture and Bill Gates is one of the main investors. This 13-member group includes foreign investors looking to change food and crop production in the US, including: Ceres Partners, Hancock Natural Resources Group, The Rohaytn Group, and UBS Farmland Investors.
Is Gates preparing to control US farmers and dictate the direction of US farming in accordance with the United Nations?
