Default Bill gates owns +/- 270k acres of farmland.

Does he lease any of it out to hunters?

Just saw this going around about how much land he owns. Thoughts?

I feel he is buying up farmland to close down farms to help his depopulation plans

Read his book on it. He is purchasing land to both protect natural resources as well as use to develop/improve better wind, solar power and carbon capture R&D. No hunting allowed that I am aware of.

He is also investing heavily in his fake meat venture. Watch for commercials on tv. Notice how in California and Oregon there is a push to stop the sale and slaughter of animals for meat? This isnít just a coincidence. Many people are behind the scenes working for him to see that his plans are carried out across the states. And thatís not just in this nation alone. You can be sure that other big names are with him.

The thing about the meat substitutes are that they require a lot of processing and synthetic chemicals to achieve the taste, texture etc...of real meat. Is it a good substitute for meat for vegetarians and vegans yes. Is it healthier...no.

Todayís big farms donít support anything to hunt. They farm from road ditch to road ditch and hardly anything is fallow. Strictly a moneymaking affair. You can bet thatís what Gates is interested in too.

Yep. And the Chi-comms own 191,000 acres of farmland in America worth 1.9 billion. And still going. It’s a long way to 2024, and still no guarantee that that election won’t be compromised as well.

He is on record in several interviews admitting to using / needing vaccines to control global populations...nations have actually officially condemned him by name on record in parliament & other official capacities. They have said his actions have brought an onslaught of autism where there once was none. This isn't up for debate as the vids are out there. Go find them. Gates is not new to vaccines & even produced a movie on netflix predicting the pandemic you see now & the need for a vaccine to counter.

The guy is also an evil pedo & took many flights to Epstein Island...ask yourself why a guy like him & china would be buying up US farmland. For the greater good of mankind??

Again. Why do the people that want population control never start with themselves? God has a special place in hell for people like this.

I think you missed the point, the fake meat is not good for you because of all the chemicals, therefore, itís ok for vegetarians to eat.

He is evil
He believes in population control
So, it won’t surprise me if he takes it out of service and does not allow any farming. The shorter our supply is the more people will suffer

Thanks for the reply. I know him and his wife have been really big in 3rd world vaccinations in Africa for malaria etc with the Gates Foundation, but have never heard him mention in with regards to sterilization/population control. I will try to find that info. I know that he has been predicting that we are unprepared for a pandemic as well, but again not with ill intentions, just preparedness. Looks like maybe I need to do more research on him. I read his book (because of a TBH post) thinking...man how could someone so smart and who I at one time admired go so crazy?? So I started reading to see just how crazy this guy had gotten. Funny thing is...I came out on the other end after reading his stuff. I didn't find him crazy at all and he made a lot of sense. Most of the stuff I was reading on TBH and other outlets about him saying/doing was taken way out of context. It made me a little frustrated because that is the crap the left is known for doing. But to see the right doing it so blatantly kinda frustrated me. Anyways looks like I have a lot more research to do on this possible nut job before forming my own conclusion.

In the old days, before the internet, the elite would just exterminate large populations of people or put them in concentration camps. Now days, they create mass hysteria with a FAKE pandemic, introduce a vaccine to cure it and masses of dip ****s will run you over to get injected. Darwin Award winners. There’s a sucker born every minute.

No doubt that’s a lot of acreage but keep in mind that the US has 1 billion acres in active farm land and in production. That’s not including range/livestock. I don’t think he has enough to move the needle much

I donít know about ND farming, but small independent family farms here in west Texas farm road to road. Modern equipment and chemicals make it possible. Sub surface drip irrigation makes a rectangle shape a fully irrigated crop, no ďcornersĒ due to pivot shape, gps guided tractors and implement let the drive right to the edges, and modern herbicides allow them to keep fields clean without harming crops which have been genetically modified so the herbicide doesnít kill them.

We have to have nearly every square inch of dirt to grow low nutritional value cereal crops in order to feed a growing human population
