How rich: Bill Gates made his billions
while avoiding taxes - now he´s
lecturing us on how to spend ours

Daily Mail [UK], by Ian Birrell

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 4/20/2017 10:52:55 PM

Scarcely had the starting gun for Britain’s election battle been fired when technology guru Bill Gates waded in with a doom-laden warning to the Prime Minister. The American multi-billionaire, the world’s richest man, was accused of ‘lecturing’ Britain last night after telling Theresa May not to slash the country’s bloated foreign aid budget – claiming that doing so would diminish Britain’s influence in the world and mean many more lives lost in Africa. In an article in the Guardian, he wrote: ‘The big aid givers now are the US, Britain and Germany. If those three back off, a lot of

Comments:
So Gates has written his point of view on his massive aid to poor folks for the snobby Guardian??? As of this year:

No. 1, The Sun--1,666,715
No. 2, Daily Mail--1,511,357
...
No. 14, The Guardian--156,756

The G is not a fit paper in which to wrap fish ´n chips.

I have a problem with those that make their money here and spending it outside of the country. This man has no problem telling us to do the same.

Charity begins at home. As Dolly Parton said "this is my home."

We have spent 150 years here on social safety net, many billions more of foreign aid. Then, they tell us we should pay reparations. That´s our thanks.

After watching how the Carnegie, Ford and Rockefeller foundations have morphed into leftist, anti-capitalist shills, it is frightening to think how Gates´ and Buffett´s money will end up considering they´re STARTING as pinko anti-capitalist entities.

For a century or two Britain poured money and people into Africa to quell wars, build schools, houses, roads, bridges, farms, businesses and libraries.
Then they were kicked out.

Now Gates says the Brits must send money (but not people) or lives will be lost. Sorry, Bill, been there done that. And Britain’s influence in the world exists for those who can keep it.

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci – also known as ´the Mooch´ – was critical of President Trump´s response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. ´With the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out,´ Scaramucci told ABC News´ George Stephanopoulos during his first post-White House interview, airing Sunday morning on This Week. On Saturday, Trump condemned hate ´on many sides,´ which many, including a number of Republicans, interpreted as Trump equating the white supremacists with the counter-protesters, of which one was killed. ´I wouldn´t have recommended that statement,´ said Scaramucci, who held his White House position

Inside job? New report claims hacked DNC
emails which rocked the presidential
election were actually a LEAK

A new report suggests the DNC hack, one of several that rocked the 2016 presidential election, was an inside job. According to The Nation, forensic experts and four former NSA employees claim to have new evidence that the Democratic National Committee hack happened locally with a memory key or other portable storage device. The experts speaking to The Nation argue the files were too large to have been transmitted over the internet, therefore they must have happened on site, by someone within the DNC. The Nation´s article reads: ´The volume of the supposedly hacked material and what is called the transfer rate

Charles the Prince Regent? Amid major palace
shake-up, is the Queen preparing to abdicate

His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI announced it through the Vatican, to shock and surprise. A poised Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands revealed it in a video uploaded to YouTube, and King Juan Carlos of Spain confirmed it by signing a parliamentary bill. Queen Elizabeth, however, has vowed that abdicate is something she will never do. Abdication is, after all, a dirty word in the corridors of Royal palaces, especially after the earthquake caused when her uncle Edward VIII quit the throne in 1936 to marry the twice-divorced Wallis Simpson. And there is no indication that that will ever change. Yet

President Donald Trump has condemned the violence taking place in Charlottesville Virginia amid a planned white nationalist rally. The president took to Twitter to denounce the white nationalists who stormed the city with tiki torches for a planned ´Unite the Right´ rally. ´We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for,´ he wrote. ´There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!´ ´Am in Bedminster for meetings & press conference on V.A. & all that we have done, and are doing, to make it better-but Charlottesville sad!´

A police officer, a songwriter and a surgeon who were blocked by on Twitter by Donald Trump are among a group suing the President. A lawsuit has been filed by seven Twitter users who have fallen foul of the commander-in-chief, plus the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University. It has accused Trump of trying to ´suppress dissent´ after the seven criticized him on the social network. Legal papers state: ´In an effort to suppress dissent in this forum, Defendants have excluded—“blocked”—Twitter users who have criticized the President or his policies. ´This practice is unconstitutional, and this suit seeks to end it.´

John Kelly, who is working to bring order to the White House as chief of staff, says it is his job to tell ´truth to power´ but then ´salute´ once a decision gets made. ´Remember, telling the unvarnished truth to power doesn´t mean you always get your way,´ Kelly told Fox News in his first interview since he replaced chief of staff Reince Priebus. ´The principal ultimately decides and it is our way that so long as that decision is legal, moral, and ethical, one salutes and executes.

Loretta Lynch, President Obama´s last attorney-general, used a secret email address for official business under the name Elizabeth Carlisle, it has been revealed. Lynch used the account to discuss her notorious meeting on a plane with Bill Clinton while his wife´s own email scandal was being investigated by the FBI. The disclosure is the latest blow to the reputation of the woman who had once been the country´s most senior law enforcement official. She had to step aside from deciding on whether to charge Hillary Clinton with breaking the law for having her secret server in alleged breach of national security law because

Sadiq Khan today tore into YouTube for refusing to take down four ´shocking´ videos boasting about gang violence which were reported to them by the police. The London Mayor warned that people could be killed needlessly unless more is done to take down material which encourages violence. The menacing videos, in which gang members wearing scarves and masks and brag about how they would murder their rivals, have been viewed over 356,000 times. The Metropolitan Police reported the clips to the internet giant in December, but despite having policies to remove threatening material, eight months on YouTube have

President Donald Trump said in morning tweets that his base is actually getting ´bigger & stronger´ in spite of polling that shows support for the Republican executive receding. A Quinnipiac University poll shows Republican optimism about Trump´s presidency dropping 12 points since January. His backing among other voters who were key to his victory has also been slipping. Trump launched an assault from his New Jersey golf club on ´fake news´ this morning in a flurry of tweets attacking the survey. His actions in office, he said, ´have driven the Trump base even closer together. Will never change!´ The tweets corresponded with Trump´s

NEW ORLEANS – Even after heavy rains stopped pouring down Saturday, many residents in areas of the city experienced rising water. Residents in Lakeview said hours after the rainfall stopped, water was rising inch-by-inch. However, city officials said during a press conference Sunday that rising water during drainage is a “normal occurrence.” “When you get that much rainfall it takes time for them to catch up,” said Ryan Berni, Deputy Mayor of External Affairs about the city´s drainage system. “Particularly lower lying areas, in the lowest parts of the city, water goes to those areas as the system takes time

Two Atlantic low pressure systems continue their threat to develop into tropical storms, the National Hurricane Center reports. A system in the west central Caribbean sea seems to be quickly gaining momentum, with a 60 percent chance of developing into a tropical storm in the next two days and an 80 percent chance in the next five. Those odds are up from yesterday’s 30 percent chance of formation over two days and 50 percent chance over five. “You’ve got to watch this one a lot closer because it is surrounded by land in all four directions,” said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman

CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta unleashed a series of tweets throughout the day on Saturday blaming President Trump for the white supremacists rally and subsequently deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. “These are the consequences of sanitizing white supremacists who seek to be rebranded as part of American ‘right.’ They are peddling hatred,” Acosta complained in his first tweet. Acosta made no attempt to look at his own employer or the rest of the news media in the mirror for the amount of free publicity they’ve given neo-Nazis over the last few years, but that would require a level-headed kind

These pictures show the inside of Pyongyang´s 360ft deep metro system - that will double up as a nuclear bunker if war breaks out between North Korea and the US. Images show commuters using the world´s deepest underground train system which includes two lines with a combined length of 18 miles beneath North Korea´s capital. Construction work on the Pyongyang Metro started in 1968 and was inaugurated in 1973 by Kim Il Sung, the grandfather of current dictator Kim Jong-un. And while it is usually busy with commuters, the depth of the subway system means citizens could also use it as

In many quarters of the American news media today, seasoned journalists seem incapable of pondering those parts of reality that don’t complement their political worldviews. It goes beyond “bias”—we’re all biased. This is negligence. Consider the trove of emails between FBI and Department of Justice officials published this week. The emails concern the June 27, 2016, meeting between former president Bill Clinton and then-attorney general Loretta Lynch. As readers may remember, Clinton paid an apparently impromptu visit to the attorney general aboard her DoJ plane while it was parked at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor airport. It was extremely improper for the two
