This first article is from 2009 … and look how ‘far’ we’ve come (sunk?) … these guys (Gates & similar ilk) met at “an informal gathering aimed at encouraging philanthropy.” Philanthropy for themselves. For some mysterious reason (not) the wealthy 1% seem to think the rest of us should depart & give them free reign. So recently that ugly plan (as at Nov 2019) is beginning to emerge in all it’s sparkling clarity. Interestingly (or not so?) from the Wall Street Journal. The fraternity of the literally filthy rich.

Last week’s meeting of the Great and the Good (or the Richest and Richer) was bound to draw criticism. The New York meeting of billionaires Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, David Rockefeller, Eli Broad, George Soros, Ted Turner, Oprah, Michael Bloomberg and others was described by the Chronicle of Philanthropy as an informal gathering aimed at encouraging philanthropy. Just a few billionaires getting together for drinks and dinner and a friendly chat about how to promote charitable giving.
There was no agenda, we were told. And no plan for a follow-up meeting.
But in an age of fallen wealth idols, it was inevitable that a meeting of billionaire minds would draw scrutiny. Surely all that money and power in one room had to spell trouble for the rest of us.
An article in the Times of London, headlined “Billionaire Club in Bid to Curb World Population,” said the issues discussed in the top-secret meeting included health care, education and–by far the most controversial–slowing the global population growth.
Now fast forward to 2019
Bernie Sanders announces support for global eugenics and depopulation, calls on accelerating abortions in countries populated by people of color
(Natural News) In a bizarre, almost surreal CNN town hall event that repeatedly claimed hurricanes are all man-made, Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders called for a global-scale eugenics program to reduce human population by accelerating abortions in countries populated by people of color.
Advocacy for all this came from Sanders’ response to a pre-screened question from an audience member named Martha Readyoff, “a teacher from New Milford, Connecticut.” Her question is heavily peppered with presuppositions, such as claiming abortion is “empowering women.” The question was obviously intended to push Sanders toward a more radical left-wing position, and he took the bait. Here’s her question (h/t to Newsbusters.org for the transcripts):
Good evening. Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it’s crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature in a plan to address climate catastrophe?
