An Election Day Suppression Operation
"Bill Gates was asked the question, hey, why does it take ten days to count votes? Play cut 7. Today they're working on reconciling the election day ballots with check ins. They're also counting up all the right in votes and finally their processing the ballots with signatures that have been cured since the deadline of 5 p.m. on Wednesday. That's what election integrity looks like. Oh, she's lecturing us about election integrity. He's saying that election integrity means taking ten days to count your ballots. But again, it begs the question, what changed, exactly? And now you might say, oh, Charlie, what difference does it make? It's not that big of a difference. This is a monumental difference. 200 and 48,000 people voted in person on election day. 248,000 people. How many people were turned away because of the one hour line, the two hour line that started because of this sabotage machine malfunction and failure that happened in the way of voting that conservatives have a preference to vote more than any others. By the way, we're looking at just a half of percentage of results. We're talking about the current tally has Carrie Lake down so slightly. Kerry Lake currently in the tally down 17,000 428 votes down .6%. In the attorney general's race, it's a statistical tie and Abe holiday is down 850 votes. You see, when you create bedlam and chaos with machines all across the valley, people are less likely to go vote. It is an election day suppression operation.

"Wonderful product, my patriot supply dot com. I do want to play a piece of tape here that we've been talking about. It's extraordinary. Play cut 24. How many people were disenfranchised on 11 8 in Arizona? Will Bill Gates and Stephen Richards say that everything was perfect. It actually said it was an extremely well run election. Play cut 24. Ladies and gentlemen of the board supervisors, I was a poll worker and what I will say that I've seen is voters this cycle have, in fact, been disenfranchised because we as poll workers were not taught how to check out voters at our poll centers. And then at my poll center, where we literally had at 7 p.m. on election day, 675 people waiting in line of 675 do you know how many came in? A 150, 675 to a 150. Yet your leaders at the Maricopa County supervisors are aggressively and incessantly telling you it was an extremely well run election. That's 500 disenfranchised voters. That we know of at one polling place at one period of time. It really makes you wonder how many people in the valley wanted to vote that day. But couldn't. So only 25% of the people in line ended up voting, but your leaders are telling you, it's great. You're the problem. In fact, they wrote a whole Washington Post piece about how we are we are the ones that are the problem. Josh Phillip is here from epic times. He does a wonderful job. Josh, welcome to the program. I want to talk to you about pleasure. I want to talk to you about China, but I feel as if we have Chinese style elections here, any top of mind thoughts on Maricopa County. Well, I mean, it's terrible when we're watching. You know, the Democrats are really played an interesting game where they talk about voter access and how it's pretty much like a violation of the constitution, a serious crime. If you're going to disenfranchise voters, but then you see things like this and you wonder where they're at. I think it's very unfortunate that what we're watching right now violates every narrative that came out before the elections. Everything they used to try to use to criticize the idea of voter integrity and suddenly when you do have problems where people go to vote and they can't vote because the systems are down and allegedly maybe one out of every 5 out of every 6 didn't even get to vote, you start wondering what happened and how they can even approve of such a thing. It is the legitimate very serious concern. In more ways than one. All right, so tell us what is the latest out of China and what is the significance of it? Well, you might have seen these large scale protests taking place in China right now. These are significant because this is not just about China at this point. This is about COVID policy. This is about lockdown policy. This is about what gets adopted in other parts of the world, because look, whether we like it or not, other countries, including the United States have been following the China model, the mask mandates, the vaccine mandates, the lockdown policies, the COVID passports, all of that is a China model. And we started practicing it right here in the United States because the Chinese Communist Party was lying to the world through the medium of the World Health Organization and convinced us that somehow these are things that will actually solve the problem. The CCP right now is in kind of an interesting state where it's facing large scale protests of people who have had it. They are fed up and they're not going to take it anymore. And this is a country that has pretty much every terrible policy that we could ever I think be concerned could be adopted here. They have, they have the COVID passports full on. They have digital currencies full on the social credit system, cameras that look at your face and do facial recognition and even look at your facial expressions. Every type of totalitarian policy and despite being in the control of everything, you have large scale protests of people who are fed up and they're not going to take it anymore..
Melinda Gates, Amal Clooney and Michelle Obama Have Joined Forces
"Also a writer, they talked to none of you are going to remember this, but you should. You should look her up. Selma diamond. You know, back in the day, there were ten sitcoms. And each sitcom had ten writers on the show. That's a hundred writers. Only one was female, and that was Selma diamond. Could you imagine the story she had to tell? She became a prolific comedy writer, worked on a lot of shows and these shows normally only had men, tough fall, broad, New York City, Jewish chip, she didn't give a fuck. I just wish the women today could sit down and watch a couple of hours of Selma diamond talking about what it took to make it in the world. But nowadays you can watch Amal Clooney and Melinda Gates and Michelle Obama talking about their problems. I put up an I put up an Instagram with these three rules, their picture saying, please remind me not to watch this. They've all announced a collaboration between their foundations to advance gender equality and get this to end child marriage, I didn't even know we had a huge problem with child marriage. Is that a new thing? Is this the next thing? Is that going to be a new ribbon? What's that gonna be colored? Magenta? Child marriage, what is this all about? You can introduce all these new things to me. I know these three women don't care about the price of gasoline, how much groceries cost and living paycheck to paycheck has never ever happened in their lives. So they got bigger issues to tackle. I mean, Melinda was married to Bill Gates, one of the wealthiest men ever in the world. Also a man who knew of Jeffrey Epstein's predilection for underage girls and still made him a best friend. Also a man who has his hand in vaccinations and is treated like some kind of king when he goes to the G four summit or other smarty art functions. Why is Bill Gates treated like he's an elected official? It's a fucking computer nerd. With money. So listen, ladies, pay attention to what these women have to say. Especially Melinda Gates. Here's what she said. About, what is the issue? Of our lifetime. She said, my mom always told me, set your agenda or someone else will. A bullshit, your mother didn't use that expression. No one talked about agendas in the fucking 50s and 60s. It's a lie. She never said that. Set your agenda. That wasn't an expression. It just wasn't. It's like saying nowadays, oh, you gotta go to the link and cut and paste the link and we understand that today. one would have understood that in the 60s. No one heard set your own agenda. She's full of shit. And she said, and the agenda of our lifetime is making sure women can take their full power in society. Women have these unpaid burdens. Take our children, of our elderly parents, but what I want to say to women is you need to take care of yourselves first. Once you do that, then you can fully take care of others. But if we name the unpaid labor that we do, society can help us. And if good policies are put in place, it makes our jobs easier. Everybody has agency. Hate that expression. Everybody has agency, but being able to use our full agency to be fully in our female power isn't always possible. But if you start and empower someone else and they're going to empower everybody around them and you'll see what happens. I don't know where to start. I don't know where to start. I love our female power. Imagine if I began a speech by talking about our male power, I'd be booed off the stage and pelted with old bread and eggs. Such a double standard of bullshit and then what she's saying is something I haven't ever seen with the women who raised me, maybe you did, did you? I don't think you did. I didn't, did you? My sister rosalie takes care of all of us or two sons, her husband, her fucking brother who's on his ass and not knowing what the fuck's what two grandkids or 6 dogs and anybody else who wants help or attention. I've never heard her say, um, I can't do anything until I take care of myself first. But rather, the companies coming over in 15 minutes, what can I do? Didn't you hear me? I'm taking care of myself. I'll be down when I'm down. Don't imagine my mother when I was ten years old or so. Mom, you didn't pack a cold lunch. And I got no money for a hot lunch. What do I do? My father takes me, she's like, your mother is taking care of a

"I'm with us as Jack posobiec Jack. Welcome to the program. I want to talk China with you, Jack. But first, your thoughts on Maricopa County looks like they're about to certify Jack, you or our co-pilot throughout the entire saga with us. That will go down in the history books, your thoughts, Jack. Well, Charlie, I'll just say this, if what happened in Maricopa County had happened in Fulton county, Georgia, you would have had Stacey Abrams and the NAACP and everyone else from MSNBC to CNN, the entire litany coming out, demanding an investigation of what went wrong and they'd be calling it voter suppression and to be calling it duly so, Charlie, you noted it. The day before talking about long lines, potential traffic jams that we saw, people waiting for hours, people turned away. It's clearly voter suppression. It is the textbook definition of voter suppression. And for them to simply refuse to acknowledge it, flies in the face of everything that we saw that day, everything that I saw even as someone who's coming from outside of Arizona, that's not the way that elections ought to be held in the United States. And by the way, if we're going to say that we stand with the people of China in their calls for freedom, then we ought to also make sure that we don't be hypocrites because we have to look at our own system and pull out what the splinter in our own eye. So one person who testified said there were 600 people waiting in line at 7 p.m. when the polls closed. And only a 160 actually came into vote. That right there is the margin between Abraham a day. And the Democrat attorney general candidate, that right there, very clearly, that's a 500 person margin. Now, you extrapolate that throughout the entire valley. Now, Jack, my working theory is this. You got Bill Gates, you got Stephen richer, you got the entire Maricopa County supervisors, supervisors board. They are insistent that this was the best run election in Maricopa County history. They're saying it was run extremely well. I believe that they're actually thinking of a different game here, Jack. They have to say that. Because I think they know deep down that they could be criminally liable for one of the largest voter suppression operations in the history of the west. Your thoughts check. Well, Charlie, of course, it's another example of them saying, well, we have investigated ourselves and we found that we did nothing wrong, right? So there's been no independent investigation of this. There's been no independent measure of this. There's no certainly national or international body that's taken a look at this. Beyond the confines, I think, of your show, really. Charlie Kirk show rav in general with war room, et cetera, Ben, being there. No one's actually taking a look at, okay, what are the standards that we would use from the U.S. State Department? Hillary Clinton's State Department. What standards would she use to declare whether an election in Africa or Eastern Europe or Russia were considered legal and open and reliable? Then apply those same standards to Maricopa County and let's see, let's see if they met the standard or not. I'd be willing to put Maricopa up to that. I wonder if Stephen Richard and Bill Gates would acquiesce. I think that they know how complicit they are. Let's play a piece of tape here. Cut 23 woman testifying at the Maricopa County supervisors meeting and watch. I mean, the outrage is there. Watch them still certify it after this. That is how little they care about you. You want to see a little window into how your congressman likely thinks about you. Just look at how Maricopa's going to certify despite the citizen outrage, play cut 23. I feel that the voters of Arizona and particular Maricopa County and wickenburg had their votes disenfranchised because Maricopa County had so many problems on election day. Thousands could not vote thousands left discouraged. I was one of those voters disenfranchised in wickenburg and Maricopa County. My belt looked perfect. And no matter what I did, the tabulator would not accept it. I reluctantly finally put my ballot in drawer three ballot and noticed there were hundreds of ballots stuffed in both tabulators and George three. I was later told there was 6 17,000 plus ballots in George rigg. Jack one minute remaining. Look, Charlie, I remember we were laughing about this on the day of the election saying door three door three door three. We're not laughing about door three anymore. I want to know what's actually behind that door. Is this what American democracy America our system? Our republic, our constitutional republic that our founders to us. Is this what we've devolved to, arguing about votes that go behind a door that nobody can ever seem to find afterwards. I don't think so. I don't want to think so, but at the same time, we have to tell the truth and we have to hold these politicians to account. And despite all of that, they're going to probably smugly certify. You think about it thousands and thousands and thousands of people that were disenfranchised. We're getting the tape here of this man where he said 675 675 people were in line. And a 150 ended up voting. That's 500 people at the end of the day that said, forget it. I don't have time. In the name in the name of defending democracy, Charlie, and the name of defense. This was a sabotage operation. Sabotage operations. The Maricopa County board. And they had a lot of sabotage. They know it. Jack,.

"Charlie Kirk here look, I've told you about producer Andrew and how relief factor has really improved his life and relieve the pain in his knees and back. Now let me tell you about Yvonne in California. She says this, quote, both my husband and I are in our 70s, and so grateful to have found relief factor, who tried so many other solutions, but none of them have given us the freedom from aches and pains like relief factor.

Tyler Boyer from turning point actions with us as Tyler, how are we doing? Charlie how was your Thanksgiving? It was good. Trying to process the nonsense that's happened here in Arizona. Let's put it that way. The recuperation here is right now, as we speak, the Maricopa County board of supervisors are having their meeting. I think we can get that in the bottom corner. I don't know if we could do picture in picture right now. So tell us, what does that mean? So Maricopa County is meeting right now, talking about the canvas that they go through. And so Steven Richard I believe just, I mean, I was walking over as they're kind of in the middle of this and then they're taking public comment. So Steven Richards going through the canvas. And again, allegedly, Stephen Richard, I had nothing to do with the election. And the whole process of what they've done in Maricopa County has tried to confuse and distract and deflect. And the reality is this is that what they've done is they've managed to host the worst run election ever in the history of America county. One of the worst in American history. Maybe one of the worst in American history, yeah. I mean, I don't know a lot of American history. I'm sure there was some election in Arkansas. People get mad when I say Arkansas. Okay, Louisiana. Well, they had to redo this election in North Carolina that one time, so. Yeah, that's right. So, I mean, what happens if they certify? What does that mean? I mean, so what the reality is this is that there's a statutory requirement to certify. So the border supervisors is what they're doing is really is really sinister. And they're not taking any kind of blame for all of the inaction or action that they took. That was terrible and made the election so bad. Zero responsibility. And realistically, and what they said was they got on today the Bill Gates got on today and said, well, you know, we have to do this. This is our statuary requirement. And if you want to challenge this after then you can challenge it after and that's how this works. And to extend their right, but to a greater extent, there is massive issues and if they took any kind of ownership and had any kind of what I believe is manhood and spine and yeah, self awareness and self responsibility here, they would say, we really messed up this election. There were a few elections here. That in the state that we're super close. And what we did was was wrong. And we need to look at every possible way to make this right. And if it was, and again, this is what happened in 2016. So a lot of people don't remember this, but how long per cell had long lines that were probably shorter than these lines actually significantly. The county recorder back in 2016. She was Stephen richer for almost 30 years. It was like 20 something years. And so she knew what she was. And they had long lines for the presidential preference, which isn't like even a real election. It's an election held to give the parties. The parties can literally cancel if they want to. We actually did in the Republican Party. So this is a totally optional election that we hosted. There were long lines and everyone were like, oh, with their head. You have to remember and Steve gaillard. That's on the actual border supervisors. He is one of the board members. He was like, yeah, she should resign. There's resignations like mayor Greg Stanton who was the mayor of Phoenix in the times. He's now congressman was calling for a DoJ investigation for a presidential preference. And we had something worse happened for this general election and all these people are like, not a presidential primary preference. No, no, for an actual general, full election. We had a worse scenario developed more disenfranchisement, more voter suppression than we've ever seen in any election ever before. And these Democrats are silent now. What is so maddening? And it seems intentional. Bill Gates just came out and he said, quote, the election was run extremely well. Yeah, it's crazy. And we have verified voter after voter after voter that have emailed us and said, for example, one woman I voted in every election since 1981. I could not vote on election day. I live in anthem, three and a half hour wait, no parking spaces. I got freaked out, went home, and I cried the rest of the day because I couldn't vote. That's what Stephen Richard and Bill Gates did. But not even not even an iota taking responsibility. Not even an apology. So no, no, instead, it's actually it's Charlie Kirk's fault. So it's Tyler Boyer's fault. It's our fault for telling people that they should try to vote. If you think we're kidding, by the way, The Washington Post came out and said very clearly that it is this live stream's fault. A $4.5 billion county blames a 29 year old with a Twitter account and a live stream for three hour waits machine tabulation errors and chain of custody issues. Because we were telling people to stay in vote. Yeah, by the way, that's right. Our instructions were don't let them deter you and somehow it's awful. And they're like, oh, that's misinformation. No, they're edging on the line here of getting sued because this is reality. The reality is the responsibility of the county is to come out manage elections due to effectively and ensure that everyone's voice is heard at the ballot box. And that didn't happen on 11 8. That did not happen. What happened was we now have testimony. We have affidavits, there are people coming out that aren't inside affidavits that are saying, I went down three times and every time I went down, I get a vote and I had to work and I had to go pick up my kids and I had to do other things and that is not how elections are supposed to work. And by the way, for the people that are saying, well, that's why you have early mail. Guys, yeah, of course you can, but I mean, we've seen so many problems. If you think that these are, if these problems are happening in an election day, imagine what's happening in every other part of other aspect of these elections, right? There's not perfection in any piece of this election process. We need to be looking to other processes that work in other states. And we need to be reforming to make sure that this works. And that's what we've been saying basically for four years. Also, we should be captured by their simulation. I, you, anyone watching, should be able to easily and securely vote on election day. Period in the U.S. Constitution, it has election day, has a day that you should be able to vote. Do not fall for their sort of weird svengali like mind manipulation like, oh, you should have voted early. Actually, you're the moron. Right. You're the evil person. I should be able to walk into a voting booth on election day and not when I went to go vote on election day. I told you, in Arizona, it was bedlam. I mean, it was people were running all over the place. They couldn't check you in. There was guys trying to fix the machine. Well, you know, I was there. My own vote got screwed up. So for those, again, I walked in. Mikey's didn't get counted for two weeks and they said, oh, I waited for 25 minutes to vote. Half hour, I went to a polling place that I knew was quieter. I still waited at a half hour. I get up and guess what happens. My ballot got printed wrong, and it couldn't read it, and they had to reprint it. After the printer's broke. And so I was at a place that I don't even think showed up on the reports as one of the places where the printers broke. I could be wrong. But I mean, we had broken printers everywhere in Maricopa County. So basically what we're telling people is the system was broken. What they replaced the system with that used to exist with pre printed ballots and preparedness and more polling places, which I mean, this is just common sense stuff, guys. More polling places is healthier for a republic. More access, more ability to vote. That's voter, that's making sure that you don't disenfranchise voters. It doesn't matter who you are. The more places you have to vote, the more people can vote easily on election day. They eliminated this polling places. That's exactly what happened to Helen Purcell and why she was made out to be the worst person ever on the planet in 2016. Now they're ignoring this. Now they're running interference on behalf of Maricopa County instead of going after them like they went after Helen Purcell. And this is really important for people to understand and if you don't trust the media, I certainly wouldn't trust the media now because what they're doing is really disingenuous. It's beyond disingenuous. It's verging on what I believe is negligence on behalf of immoral behavior is what it.
Arizona Official Gives Update on Election Results
"I got a couple clips I want to play so you guys can kind of hear what's going on in the state of Arizona from the officials. Maricopa County official Bill Gates, he kind of gives an explanation on why it takes so long to count in the state of Arizona. Please, please. Why is it taking the amount of time this taking? A lot of people are talking about this. Well, first of all, it's very standard. This is how things work in Arizona and have for decades. And this is due in part because the mail in voting and recorder Richard's going to talk about that more. But I told this group that we anticipated 90 to 95% or sorry, 95 to 99% of the ballots to be counted by Friday. That's tomorrow. But I'm here to tell you the goalposts have changed. All right. And the reason that the gold posts have changed is because wonderful news, the great participation we had on election day. And in particular, we had 290,000 mail in ballots dropped off at our vote centers on election day.

Poll: Inflation, Crime Still Top Concerns for Voters
"I do want to get into some of these poll numbers and Rasmussen has it up to date for us. And folks, look, I'm just going to be honest. Number one, okay, number one, it states that inflation and crime are still the biggest issues for Americans. But at the same time, believe it or not, Biden, old number to the approval numbers are starting to go up in Nebraska and hasn't today in their daily cracking, sit down if you're not sitting down. Has Biden at 47%. And why would Biden be afforded that? Well, you're starting to see a coalescing around Biden. Democrat. Maybe even a little bit of the moderates and independents. There's a few reasons for this. One of the big ones that bruiser Andrew had a good point about this earlier was that the bill that Biden passed over the weekend or the path he was on vacation, right? Because again, put him in front of the camera. I'm not even actually sure who it was to pass the bill. By nominally signed off and to learn 300 by the single page of it. And I'm sure if you actually got him down and asked him, he couldn't explain to you a single provision that's in the Bill. But they called it the inflation reduction act. I called the inflation corrupt. We talked also that who was it lobbying behind the theme for this thing, Bill Gates, Bill Gates, taking up the phone, making secret conversations with Joe Manchin of West Virginia, pushing to get management across the line. And why was this? Because this wasn't about inflation. This was a backdoor Green New Deal.
Was the Rise of the 4th Reich Planned? Daniel Horowitz Weighs In
"I want to ask you this. How much of this was planned beforehand? So if you are making the argument that this is the rise of the fourth Reich, then it's possible to infer this was not an accident. This was not some sort of they stumbled into it. Was this planned in the sense that they have globalist type blueprints on the table ready to be implemented? Are you going as far to say that this virus was released intentionally because if you're going to say it was the fourth Reich, then this was many years in the making your thoughts Daniel then Steve. Absolutely, this was pre planned. It's funny just today on my podcast, I was talking about monkeypox, how they rushed an extremely dangerous shot. Prima facial on CDC's own review in 2019, why they held a tabletop simulation last year. Bill Gates warned about it. They approved a therapeutic for smallpox. Why? Why? Wuhan was doing research, gain of function of monkeypox. We're seeing it now. Before we didn't see it, and retrospectively, when you go back, there were those planning it. Now, to be clear, there are people in pharma and government that knew about it and were planning it. It doesn't mean every last person in the medical profession to about it. Obviously, they didn't, just like in the Third Reich, most people didn't know about the final solution, but they got swept up into that medical nationalism, the
Liberty Isn't the Same As Freedom
"Freedom is the emblem of America. That's why the French gave America and not itself or any other country, the Statue of Liberty, liberty is the opposite of police state. Liberty is not the left wing value, just as truth is not. It is hard to know what a left wing value is. What are Bill Gates values? Or is he buying up so much farmland in America? And other land. What is he actually stand for?
Jake Sherman and Hugh Discuss the Open Amendment Process
"It works, I want people to understand this. I'm writing a column on voter Rama. After reconciliation gets put onto the floor, an open amendment process follows. And anyone can propose everything. It's been used for symbolic votes because at the end of that process, there's a wrap around amendment that takes it back to the original bill. So they just jettison everything they passed. Unless something gets the kind of support that makes the wraparound amendment yield to it. If I stated that accurately, Cenk. Yes. Yes, you have. And the voter Rama will take a long time. It could take as many it could take three, four, 5 days on the Senate floor. There are ways to control how long it takes. But yes, there's basically at the end of the process, there will be an amendment that kind of nullifies all the other amendments that they pass. So unless they, unless they provide for some of those amendments to go in, the ones at cinema, for example, wants, correct? Yes, that's right. So I think to remember, sorry you, but the thing to remember is that 51 50 votes, 51 votes in this case. It means you could do anything in the Senate pretty much if you stick together. On this bill. So if I were the Republicans, instead of doing all the symbolic stuff out there, I'd focus all my energy on a handful that you want to actually make it into the wrap around amendment. One of them, for example, take some of that green money and build nuclear plants, the new ones, the kind that Bill Gates likes, the modular, very safe, very low risk. I mean, extremely low risk nuclear plants. They can be built quickly. Do you think that would have a prayer of picking up a 51st vote from the Democrats? The answer to that is maybe, but the larger thing is Schumer is able to or should be able to and will try to hold people together against some of these amendments. And I don't know about the nuclear. I don't know if they're going to do something like that, but if you want to, he's able to, he could try to convince people to stick together because they don't want to they don't want to change this bill too much.
As We Predicted for Months on This Show, Crashflation Is Here
"Now heading towards a sequence of economic decisions of which many of you, young people, many students out there that are watching have never lived through. Now this will be completely different in my personal opinion than the 2008 financial crisis. The 2008 financial crisis was sudden. It was a shock to the system. I believe this will be a slow motion car crash. A series of bad news day after day, month after month, when after 6 or 9 months to say how the heck did we end up here? Former economic adviser Larry summer says there's a greater risk of stagflation which we call crash for some number of years than the market is currently discounting. Someone asked me the day, Charlie, how long is this going to take? I said it could take two to three years. You don't spend $7 trillion that you do not have on top of the $4.4 trillion. We're already spending from the federal government locked down an entire society inject it back into the country and act as if everything's going to be fine. You want to know why Bill Gates is buying farmland because he knows that when things fall apart, it's the only thing you're going to have left. Play
Charlie and Dr. Malone Speculate About Bill Gates' End Game
"Talk about Bill Gates. What does Bill Gates want? What is his motivation? What drives Bill Gates? That's a great question. I'll leave that up to you because it may be as much a philosophical and religious one as anything. There are those who speak about the fact that evil does walk the earth and I used to avoid that kind of talk and yet it's hard to reconcile what we observe. What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world yet forfeits his soul? Mister Gates is not a healthy psychological being. He is bizarrely disconnected from people. He believes that he's above us in some strange way. The best I can say is the term sociopath and you know that sociopath is a term on a continuum. Yes. I'm not in Bill Gates head, but his behaviors are not those of a healthy, well balanced human being in my opinion. And he continues to play out as the reason why I look back to Bill as opposed to Klaus, who's like a cartoon evil guy, you know, out of a Bond movie. And my European friends tell me he's actually kind of goofy, not very smart, he's more of the puppet than the puppet master. Bill is intrinsically and monopolist as I said before. And that is his core competency. He wants to control he wants to have power
Bill Gates says crypto and NFTs are a sham
"Bill Gates says NFTs and crypto are 100% based on the greater fool theory. Now, generally, I see more. Are you familiar with the greater fool theory? The greater what theory? The greater fool theory. No. The greater fool theory is that no matter what you pay for something, there will be a greater fool around who will pay more for it. I've seen that in action in the last couple of weeks having it. Yeah, we have. We know. Actually, it's a true theory. Bill Gates believes in it. That's why I think I said, can we get a Montage someday of how many times I told people not to buy crypto on the show? It goes back at least 5 years. And what did I say? Don't buy what you don't understand. So unless you can sit down and explain to me how blockchain currency replaces a reserve currency, don't buy it. But in any event and non fungible tokens, that to me with the tulip bulb thing. If you study the history of economics, Arthur Brooks, westbury, they all begin with the tulip bulb thing. That's when there was a market bubble in tulip bulbs.
Maj Toure Analyzes Matthew McConaughey's Visit to the White House
"Yeah I'm not with it at all And it's smart of the opposition It's smart McConaughey I think is from Yuval day if I'm not mistaken I think he's from that part of Texas Nonetheless it's a smart move by the opposition to get a charming guy a convincing guy to do this thing There's a movie called the devil's advocate with Al Pacino And Keanu Reeves are on a train And he's telling him like oh you're like southern slick They see you coming And he's like me you know I'm the hand under the dress of the Mona Lisa They never see me coming These guys like Matthew McConaughey Bill Gates These types of guys they're like the super nerd that you oh man he's not a threat Or he is super charming Actors generally not all because I have friends that are actors and actresses Generally there's a certain level of Hollywood like sociopathic thing here Like your ability to act as a character he's the same guy that was in free state of Jones somehow that means that we have to listen to you and your intelligence or acting ability translates into intelligence And it doesn't And he is allowed to be as charming and cool and witty and all of that is he wants to be in The White House is allowed to I don't know why but have this actor in there this prescribing what our policy should be but while he's free to do that that has absolutely no bearing on my life and my ability to defend myself my family and my community And I think people need to remind that the left has the right to be as dumb and foolish as they want to be They can express themselves that way They can hire paid guys with armed security details to do to say that we shouldn't have firearms and we are free to completely ignore them and hopefully catch their next movie where they're pretending all over again
Cheryl Chumley on the Evil Forces Trying to Bring Down America
"Hey folks talking to Cheryl chumlee author of the new book lockdown, the socialist plan to take away your freedom to Sheryl, I was just saying that, you know, when I think of Nazi Germany, I know that there's real evil in the world, but the idea that there are people you mentioned Klaus Schwab and others who would be so dedicated to bringing down America. What do you suppose it is whether in someone like that or the people that collaborated with him, whether it's Fauci or the Democratic Party. What do you think it is that gives them such a fully formed hatred of America and a plan to want to bring it down? Well, in many of these people's minds, they think they're actually bringing about a good, right? Because evil doesn't always come in this form of violence where it's easy to name it's easy to see, right? A lot of times it comes. It looks 99% good and it's just that 1% that twists on the truth that is actually the evil part. And in the end, it doesn't matter. So if you look at Anthony Fauci, if you look at cloud Schwab, Bill Gates, for instance, perhaps they truly believe that what they're doing with this great reset. What they have in mind for the new America is something that will actually be good in the end. But that doesn't take away from the fact that when you're dealing with the seizure of God given liberties, that that is an evil to those who live in America and are born, you know, into a country where individual rights are supposed to be cherished and upheld. So evil comes in many forms, but I just think that the left saw at this particular time in American history that all the ducks were in a row. We have a feckless president in The White House who's able to be influenced and steamrolled over pretty much everything that should stand for America. And more importantly, we have a nation that has turned away from God.
The W.H.O. and a Fire Alarm for American Sovereignty
"Now the immediate significance of all this outside of just kind of a rather enjoyable monologue that I'm making right now, at least I'm enjoying it about how beautiful the U.S. Constitution is right now, the beginning stages of the erosion of individual sovereignty and state sovereignty and national sovereignty is going to be put in jeopardy. The World Health Organization, the highly corrupt World Health Organization. Is going to be meeting in Geneva Switzerland in the coming days post Davos to make official the complete elimination of American based sovereignty. America has the ability to make their own health decisions as it is today. But this proposed declaration from the World Health Organization would basically remove all sovereignty from the American citizens and put them in the hands of international. Unelected, World Health Organization, bureaucrats. Bill Gates, for example, contributes much of the WHO budget. This would completely put into jeopardy. A future Florida a South Dakota when it comes to a
Why Differing With the Left Is Called Disinformation
"So like Bill Gates, difference between Bill Gates, who has COVID, mild COVID right now, and I, this past weekend, is that he is double vax and double boosted and I am none of that. So what exactly is the difference? I'll let you think about that one for a while. We got the exact same thing, except he took the risk of having the vaccine and two boosters, and I took the risk of not having the vaccine, and two boosters. I think he took the bigger risk. He thinks I took the bigger risk. That's what adults do. They differ, but not in America. You can't differ. You differ with the left and it's called misinformation. There is no exception to that. Tell me one area where you can differ with the left and you're either not a racist. Or dealing in misinformation.
Producer Andrew and Dr. Keith Rose Discuss Bill Gates' COVID Response
"I want to play another clip for a Bill Gates here from that same talk he was giving. That's just cut one. Let's go ahead and play it and we'll react to it after that. Cut one. It wasn't until early February when I was in a meeting that experts at the foundation said, there's no way, you know, this there's been too much travel without diagnosis for us to contain this. And then at that point, we didn't really understand the fatality rate. We didn't understand that it's a fairly low fatality rate. And that it's a deceased mainly of the elderly kind of like flu yeah, so glad we didn't overreact, right? Doctor Rhodes. Well, I just appreciate the fact that Bill Gates and his experts as soon as they realize that there was no way to quote contain this came out and said that lockdowns weren't effective in that, let's not crush the economy. Let's not cause an increase in drug use and suicides. Let's not destroy jobs. Let's do something different. It's interesting. He talks about it. And if you're watching talk, he's just kind of rattling off the top of the head like there were no consequences to this. No, it was his group that funded the IHME that gave us these bogus projections in the beginning that forced all the lockdowns that said there were going to be millions and millions of deaths. So Amelia culpa two years later, I mean, it's not even to me a culprit's like, oh, I guess we got it wrong.
"bill gates" Discussed on This Week in Tech
"Podcast NFT. No one's been able to disprove it yet. And people have a talking about it. That's awesome. Congratulations. You're a historic figure. Exactly. That's very good. That's Brian McCullough, tech meme ride home. It's easy to find. You just go to tech meme dot com it's on the front page there. But of course, you probably should subscribe in your favorite podcast player so you don't have to think about going anywhere just to rise. Magically, you're doing anything else or that's probably a full-time gig, I would imagine. It is, although the podcast sorry to say raised a venture fund reason. Wait a minute. What? Yes. Not only have an NFT, but you have a venture fund. Yeah, it started in October. All of the LPs are listeners of the show. It's a tiny, tiny fund. It's only an early stage. Three mil. But it's a rolling fund and so that could go up too because any credited investor could invest, but it's been beautiful because we're running it open kimono style every company we invest in. We have them come on the show. Talk about what they're doing. So even if you're not an investor in the podcast, hopefully or in the fund, sorry. All of the listeners of the podcast will become fans of you. You're quite the innovator. Ride home fund dot com. That is true. You're when you say 3 million, is that like people have given you $3 million to invest? As of this moment, $3 million. Now it's a rolling fund. So next year, we'll see how many people re up. And if you invest in anything yet, yes, 18 companies. Of which only four are on there because again, we're leveraging the show, we don't want to announce it until it's useful to the companies. And so when you come on and say, hey, here's what we're doing. We want to be introduced to this company. We're hiring in this area. So we've invested in 18 companies, but we'll see how long it takes. Brian, I'm guessing that you're 39. 39, why do you say that? Because that's when people really kick into gear, like Bill Gates and Zuckerberg. And I think you're kicking in the gear, my friend. Sadly, I'm 44. Well, you're a little late. That's okay. It's close enough. It's close enough. You probably had the idea for this when you were 39. No, but listen. The fact that you can do this through AngelList, et cetera. Listen, I derailed everything. I apologize. I'm asking you for your plug. And this is it. This is great. In fact, I'm blown away. The podcast. Yes. Not only, and by the way, it's early stage, right? So these are like ground floor getting in on the ground floor of these companies. Which is Leo why I think it works is that like, look, no deal flow. Well, but no one that is raising a $100 million series B or C needs me. But a certain type of company that wants to reach tens of thousands of people that work in tech might just use a boost myself, I didn't think of this. That's all. You can.
"bill gates" Discussed on Ron Paul Liberty Report
"Hello everybody and thank you for tuning into the liberty report with us today as chris. Razini our co host chris. Welcome to the program. It's great to be with you again. Dr paul very good and You know i think the people who have harassed the world and us and and everything going on those people who promoted the mongering over cove it I think they are sensing that. Maybe they're losing a little bit of steam. And i do too. I think so. There's a shift in sentiment there's more rallies now saying enough is enough and they're starting to resist all the naza but there's still a lot of people out there and it's there and it's going to persist because you know dealing with a cold virus is a serious thing to do and this cold virus might even change your maybe another cold virus next year and They haven't discovered that var that vaccines aren't very good for cold viruses. But they're going to pursue that but they're also laying plans because they have to have something to stir up fear among the people keep the people scare in order to roll over and do what the government tells them so whether it's economics or foreign policy or whatever or whether it's the weather changing The people have to be frightened in order for them to say yeah. I know. I wanna be a free person. I wanna make on i own decisions but there is a limit so there's a time we just have to have the government take care of us and of course that's what they did A year and a half ago when kovic came and all the propaganda and the fear mongering occurred. And that's that's been going on. But i think those who orchestrated that are realizing that they're scenario is is weakening their hard time selling this and they're losing a little steam but they have to have somebody and something to stir up trouble and stir up the fear among the people and it looks like what they're going to use. This climate changes that that and the need to have climate control and lo and behold it's been written by People like bill gates at actually mentioned these kind of things and there's people who are involved. I mean there's trillions and trillions of dollars being invested in the markets directed emphasizing the difference between a company that recognizes this and we'll obey the government you know on lockdowns in whatever and the people who resist but it's very ingrained in business so this is coming right now and They've already started eighties. Excuse me they also they. They discovered that You know paying attention to tropical storms. That's very important so The naming of storms has been around for a long time but they decided a year or so ago that they should pay more storms. Even as marginal even if it's borderline is a storm. It's a major storm. So guess what. There were more major storms listed. Y'all last year and this year than ever before and indicating you know climate changes are occurring. And you better toe. The line and bill gates says. Oh because it's getting bad so this this is an issue that's coming..

"They are very clear that this is a total transformation of society and as far as bill gates goes mike. The head of microsoft as the ceo of that company to part of the president of that company has been heavily involved in all of this great reset stuff. Microsoft has been deeply connected to the world economic forum which is leading the charge on this whole great reset movement. I have no doubt that bill gates at the very least knows this is where everything is heading and knows that the best thing that he can do to make sure that he maintains his wealth and the future is to buy up hard assets by up land because land will always be worth something because people need land. They need food to eat and they need a place to live so land will always be valuable. So he's purchasing it up. You also have the federal government talking about restricting land ownership pretty dramatically. Joe biden has thirty by thirty plan. His goal is for the federal government to control conserve thirty percent of all land by twenty thirty in the united well as reasoning for it said station. Exactly he's saying it's for environmental reasons. But i think that the reason is they're putting a squeeze on on on everybody except for the people who are the elites. See the elites. No all this is coming so they have time to put their money in land to put their money in housing developments. Put their money in the assets that are going to hold its value. Meanwhile regular people have no clue that any of this stuff is going on. I had no clue. Any of this stuff was going on until about a year. And a half ago when i started seeing crazy quotes from people at the world economic forum and i started looking into it. The average person has no clue. What's happening. These people are all setting themselves up for the next phase of and i have. I know that this is the case. Because they're the ones saying that they're doing all of this and their actions are speaking louder than their words now. How does china come in. Come into play here because obviously if we lived in any kind of sane world their Their es score would be very low. We know them to be tyrannical. We know them. To perpetuate all kinds of human rights abuses not just in china. But also in how. They're you know colonizing places in africa and in south america. I mean just one of the most destructive regimes in the world and yet i can't see bill gates or any of these major corporations doing anything to punish china's you said it's really the west and america that they see is the the real problem So how did they come into play here today. like this plan. I mean do they benefit from this. Yeah that's that's a really really important. I think they absolutely benefit from the system. But not in the way that people in the west are benefiting from the system. What china wants more than anybody..

"The fuck god but what this means is that from the beginning gates placed burnishing the public image of a finance company on equal footing with actual virology right in april of twenty twenty with the entire country. Locked the fuck down and the virus just beginning to bite. Bill gates launched the covid nineteen act. Accelerator this program was geared towards organized the research development manufacture and distribution of treatments. And vaccines like everything. The gates foundation funds. This was a public private partnership based around using charity to entice corporations to do the right thing by making it profitable. This was one of a number of programs geared at funding vaccine research but unlike most of those the accelerator was from the start focused on respecting the exclusive intellectual property claims that whoever won the vaccine race from a writer for the new republic it's explicit arguments that intellectual property rights won't present problems for meeting global demand or ensuring equitable access and that they must be protected even during the pandemic carry the enormous weight of gates his reputation as a wise beneficent and prophetic leader. As vaccine research preceded. A lot of people suggested that win one was developed. The recipe should basically be open source so that any country with the capacity could make it without paying to license it gates at fought against this kovacs which is the largest arm of his coat. Response organization proposed instead that poor countries should have vaccines donated to them by rich countries. Who would fund this vaccine sales and wealthier countries. It was hoped that this would back seen this night. All of them. This was to vaccinate about twenty percent of people in low to middle income countries after that those governments would have to bid and compete on the open market for access to vaccines so one side of this is saying the vaccine should be open source and equally available to everybody everywhere for his close to free as humanly possible and bill gates says what if instead we do it for money and we donate a twenty percent of the necessary vaccine. Still they'll never learn. They'll they'll never learn how to teach themselves to stay alive. Yes we make them work for it. Yeah it's a alive. Yeah yeah you have three gunshot wounds. Emt shows up and like bandages one of them and then says well. If i if. I handle the rest for you. You're never going to learn how to manage your own gunshot wound so i'm gonna if you can pay for the gos- like i'll let you fix yourself again. You take his big picture logic about healthcare and apply it to an actual health problem and it's immediately nonsense like it's just very clearly a bad idea but because you're talking about the big picture people think he's smarter now. Many people warned that his ideas were horrible and that by fighting against the idea of a vaccine he was essentially saying was fine for people to die to protect the concept of intellectual property. Men will martin a policy advisor for doctors without borders has since said that people in gates administration were central in pushing a global line. That quote is not an access barrier in vaccines of course the only reason to have. Ip is to make an access says that's all it is a hundred percent of ip is about reducing access. That's the only reason for it to exist zero ch- thing like obviously like like i'm not gonna. It's like zero reason for the kind of ip that he wants. Yeah like like and it's obviously it always winds up. It would be one of those things like. I don't know the people who invented the adventures and superman stuff got to make money off of their things instead of these gigantic syndicates using ip law to anyway where reading disney does like fuck. All of this shit is what. I'm saying like i believe in the ability of an artist to have control over their art. Obviously and for the record. I think that. If you're a i think for i think for example one of the things we as a society could do is when we have a global pandemic and an international team of heroic researchers creates vaccines in record time. Maybe we should make sure none of them ever have to worry about anything financial for the rest of their lives. Maybe that's the thing we could do as a planet. Yeah actual tony stark happened. Yeah we could manage to do anything good for those. It's because the people who did the amazing thing weren't tony stark's were teams of very dedicated. Researchers whose names most people will never know and also should know because they'll get assassinated by lunatics the star and there is no tony stark. Well tony stark is the one saying this thing. Other people invented should be profitable to a group of people separate from the people who invented and other. It's worth human death for this to be the way it works and again when it comes to ip if you're talking about like a novel or like mickey mouse or whatever right. We can argue about how bad it is culturally. But it's worth modest harm because again you're talking about mickey mouse when we're talking about vaccines you're literally talking about restricting who gets lifesaving medicine that ip protections are for vaccine is a restriction on whose life gets saved. James love is the founder and director of knowledge ecology international a think tank that studies the pharmaceutical industry and ip. He's been involved in global public health policy as long as bill gates and his analyzed his impact for quite a while he points out that at the start there was a fight between a pooling approach advised by groups like the. Who see tap which basically would have said we should who research any research done anywhere in the world should be available to all researchers working on this program. We should open source the entire process of research. The vaccine process all of the studies into its effect. All of this should be pulled together. We should pool knowledge. you may recognize. This is exactly the same thing. Computer nerds were doing in the nineteen seventies when bill gates wrote a letter at them. They were pooling their knowledge to improve a thing. Bill gates got really fucking angry and of course when this happened with a vaccine bill gates fought like a devil against it quote. Things could have gone either way says love but gates wanted exclusive rights maintained. He acted fast to stop the push for sharing. The knowledge needed to make the products. The know how the data the cell lines the tech transfer the transparency that is critically important in a dozen ways. The pooling approach represented by c. Tap is included all of that instead of backing those early discussions. He raced ahead and signaled support for business as usual intellectual property by announcing the act accelerator in march. And how did gates his public private partnership work one year later. His act accelerator has completely failed in its goal of providing discounted vaccines to the priority fifth of the world's poorest people the drug companies and wealthy nations that supported his plan have all made bilateral agreements that basically said fuck poor countries as peter. Houghton's dean of the national school of tropical medicine said the low and middle income countries are pretty much on their own. And there's just not much out there. Despite their best efforts the gates model in its into end its institutions are still industry dependent. Now the act accelerator is also technically part of the. Who but it is funded managed and staffed mostly by gates foundation people it has ensured that globally rich countries and respect for intellectual property had been prioritized human lives from new republic. Quote companies. partnering with kovacs are allowed to set their own tiered prices. They're subject to almost no transparency requirements into toothless contractual nods to equitable access. That have never been enforced. Crucially the companies retain exclusive rights to their intellectual property if they stray from their gates foundation lie on exclusive rights. There quickly brought to heel. When the director of oxford's jenner institute had funny ideas about placing the right states. Kovac supported vaccine candidate in the public domain gates intervened as reported by kaiser health news a few weeks later oxford urged on by the bill and melinda gates foundation reversed course signed an exclusive vaccine deal with astrazeneca that gave the pharmaceutical giant sole rights. To no no guarantee of low prices.

It was just because it wasn't even it wasn't because it was going to hurt your ability to make money because they're using the on your computers that they're paying for it was that someone else was making money like it didn't even hurt you. You just hate the idea that other people will profit. It's amazing so yeah That meeting with microsoft and netscape threatened netscape wound up playing a key role in a massive nineteen eight antitrust lawsuit. Federal government brought against microsoft twenty state governments lawsuit which alleged that the company was engaged in the systemic pattern of anti competitive tactics. It's attempt to wipe out all competition in. The browser. market was just one example of this. The government case against microsoft was heavily boosted by a memorandum written in nineteen ninety-five by gates himself titled the internet tidal wave. If described netscape is a threat that had to be beaten. The government alleged using this that microsoft set out to win at any cost. The federal judge heard the case. Thomas penfield jackson decided for the government finding that microsoft had attempted to monopolize the web browser market. He ordered the company split into now. You're probably aware that this did not happen. Microsoft appealed they. Obviously they have all of the money in the world they appeal. The judge's decision gets overturned. They the the thing they eventually. I was just like a slap on the wrist. I'm not gonna labor long on why this happened. Microsoft had all the money all the lawyers and owned a decent number of the politicians. Of course they won in the long term. Our system is designed for them to win. What's important and what was valuable about. The antitrust suit is that it shattered bill gates for a while. It was hugely stressful. It made for months of bad. Pr it led him to have several in-office nervous breakdowns and worst of all in involved a public deposition. that exposed him to the world is exactly the kind of arrogant angry little man. Those who worked closely with him had known since the albuquerque days. So let's this episode by talking about that deposition microsoft's legal strategy in the first case was to depict the prosecutors as out of touch old fogies. Who didn't understand technology. Independent like microsoft is just acting the way any reasonable tech company would do gates his lawyers. Npr flax wanted him to make hay out of his reputation as a boy genius. Who dropped out of harvard to become the world's richest man here's how ars technica describing what came next by day two. It became clear that the strategy was failing spectacularly as new yorker writer. Ken wants noted gates had never in his life gravelled for a job or suffered many of the indignities most of us experience regular basis. He regularly berated reporters for asking what he'd say. We're stupid questions publicly. Lauded as the wise age consummate businessman an industry visionary gates was accustomed to being treated with obsequious deference from all but a small number of peers as such he had little or no experience tolerating let alone encountering descent criticism or challenges to his authority. The lack of experience played right into the government's hand instead of portraying a leader in control of his domain and confident in his case and his company's legal and ethical righteousness. The courtroom video showed a site of gates. That had never been on public display before he was petulant. Petty flustered and our. He was ineffectual. He was in a word beaten during three days of intense. Questioning gates often feigned ignorance of his own companies policies and actions he parched out everyday words or phrases such as concern support and piss on gates seemed to use the strategy to evade tough questions about whether his company abused entrenched windows franchise to kill off emerging competitors such as navigator and to the surprise of him in his many attorneys and emma chandler's gates came off his argumentative petty someone badly losing ground to a more formidable rival. One example of this exchange came came in this exchange with david boies the private attorney hired by the justice department. Boys what non microsoft browsers concerned about in january of nineteen ninety-six gates. And i don't know what you mean concerned boys. What is it about. The word concerns that you don't understand gates. I'm not sure what you mean by it. Boys is gates their document where i use that term. Boys is the term concerned a term. You're familiar with in the english language gates. Yes does it have a meaning. You're familiar with gates. Yes you fucking piece of shit he really. That's like the ben shapiro. School of debate like just like don't address the issue. Yeah what is harvard dev's now again. It's like that ars technica writer points out like he's he's he's he's never had to grow your job. He's never had to deal with indignities and one point thomas penfield jackson. The judge hearing the case started laughing. Microsoft lawyers argued during a closed-door session that the deposition was turning into a sideshow government. Lawyers should be barred from showing anymore segments during the trial. The judge denied this motion. Saying if anything. I think your problem is with your witness. Not the way in which his testimony is presented. Basically like you can't show this deposition because it makes us look bad and that's exactly why we should show now should unfortunately for all mankind. The microsoft antitrust case was actually kind of even though the government kind of lost was basically the best case scenario for such a trial in our system. Good didn't win. An evil didn't lose but evil had a horrible time and wound up traumatized enough that it quits job. So that's like the best case scenario. You never gonna break up the big company because they have all the money to fight you but you can make the ceo like not wanna do his job anymore. Yeah of sort of the the viet cong. Yeah should a lawsuit. Yes cliff famous famous. Viet cong analogs the us department of justice bigger fish. Yeah all right so andrew. That's the part one for the data. What a story. What a what a tale you got. You got to plug no. Yeah just joe is racist. We are independent now. I remember if we said that at the top go to suboptimal optimal pods dot com. And you'll see how does subscribe to premium shows and stuff and whatever c. That's exciting because in part two we are going to have to ask. Hey goes that racist a couple of times way. Hot with host of chef. You may know me. As the judge. On top chef louis season us citizens shift we deepen into topics ranging from disaster-relief and various injustices and hurt our food system. I hope you're as excited as i am to jump back in so starting this. May you continue to hear from experts on a wide range of issues. You with your fork and your dollars have the power to change.

"Tapes around to each other for free now. This was critical in microsoft success because it spread adoption of their products but it enraged bill gates that people were getting software for free in nineteen seventy six. He pinned infamous. Open letter to computer hobbyists. He accused them of all stealing all of stealing his software and said that resellers who sold computers with his programs already on them. We're basically robbing them. The letter included the line hardware. Must be paid for but software is something to share. Who cares if the people who worked on it get paid is being very snotty about this now gates complained that the time he and allen spent to create their products was worth forty thousand dollars but that the royalties they received based on what they'd actually sold meant. They were just making about two dollars an hour. This was many will argue a short-sighted way of looking at things the sharon share like mindset of early software was a major driver of innovation at allowed different ideas about software to be merged and tested and provided early programmers with a greater base of knowledge to work from many of the brilliant minds behind the computer revolution. Guys like steve. Wozniak benefited hugely from the state of affairs. Like if someone who will say like that's why we have the computer systems that we have two days because in my day we were just able to share everything and was like like a punk side of this thing. He's a phone bringer. he's doing back in the day. You could like make certain signals over the phone that would get you free phone access and shit like he was all into that. Like fucking steve. Wozniak actually pretty fucking red. When he super rich off of apple he blew all of his money holding a bunch of giant concerts and stuff but he's bucking cool dude. Actually but bill did not so bill. You know a lot of again. Wozniak is one of those guys that you really can't argue. It was instrumental in the existence of personal computers as we know them today. You argue that about bill gates and he did not agree with guys like steve wozniak about intellectual property. He felt that intellectual property rights trumped human progress any day of the week. It didn't matter that sharing software was good for computing because it was bad for microsoft and so from that moment on gates dedicated himself to making sure. Ip was kept sacrosanct today intellectual property rights and paid software such pillars of the industry. That it can be hard to believe. This wasn't necessarily always going to be the case. One thing that made apple computer interesting nineteen seventy. Six was the fact that they're operating system apple basic was free and they openly claimed quote. Our philosophy is to provide software for our machines at free or minimal cost. Now there was significant fallout within the computing community over this open. Letter one hobbyist. Hal singer who published an influential newsletter complained that since bill gates had developed basic on a harvard university computer funded by the us government and the start of the microphone. The focused programs they make they make in heart before they drop out the harvard. Computer they make it on was paid for by darpa like the residence advanced research project agency and so how singer will say like well. He should never have been able to sell my place. It was developed using taxpayer funds. Which is true. This is a very defensible. Line of argument now. It does like bill gates is the thing. The of philosophy of his that has resonated doubt is tech is using public hinder public research public funded intellectual property public. Whatever thinking they own it at the not letting and then getting mad when you know like like taking taking from the common good and pretending they invented it. Yeah yeah it's fucking it's fucking read you know. What else is read. Andrew habit the products and services that support. Yeah that's right every time. Yeah thank you. Thank you christmas night.

Podcast i mean probably who slander them. Yeah stuffed animals can't really consent. Can they yeah mostly. It's all non consensual. It's all consensual. It's really something we should analyse more pretty fucked. Yes not great. It's not great but you know what is consensual at cut. I cut that entire conversation out of of does this is all stay in. This is all gold. Cortisol edit notes they it. It is not will according to my added notes. Chris you don't have to do that you can you. Can we can keep this in. You can fight the system. You can't stop the signal. Sophie and the signal is talking about whether or not stuffed animals can consent and the signal. I think largely coming out on now on that one hit us up. And we're back continuing we've been back so other. People who knew gates and allen at the time riposted his estimate that he and his colleagues had put forty thousand dollars into designing their software right. That's a big part of his argument on this open letters much money. It costs us to make this. We have to be able to make it back. Can't afford to do this. One member of the homebrew computer club. Lee stein Who lee felsenstein. Designed the first mass produced personal computer later said quote. Well we all knew that. The evaluation of computer time was the ultimate in funny money. You never pay that much for the computer time. And i think that research will show that they were using someone else's computer time someone else was paying for that. It could have been honeywell. Where paul allen was working so we all knew this to be a spurious argument so back in the day you had to pay and a lot of cases for access to a writer right and one of the things bill gets in trouble with when he's a kid he and his friends get kicked out of one of the places because they're hacking the system to get free computer time. They're using computer time at stanford they're almost certainly using paul allen's companies freak like they're doing a lot of things they would call stealing right. Yeah yeah but it's also.

"Of things that are funny about it but like it's it's like revenge of the nerds shit you know y- like that kind of thing which if you haven't watched revenge of the nerds it's a movie that the silly movie about a bunch of nerds you know Be in the cool kids And get one over on the jocks at a college that nobody thought anything was problematic about. I think ten years ago everyone realized at the same time that the main character literally rapes a girl. And it's played off as a gag. It's pretty bad pre- pretty grim asiatic. Truly just like what how. It's so many movies from eighty. Yeah that also bill. Bill gates is like that like now but this in the second episode. There's all these stories coming out about. How creepy. He is and how like inappropriate. A lot of his relationships were and people just like didn't talk about it because it was well. He's like the who wouldn't want to fuck the billionaire. Nerd grow up and make money and then all the women want them. That's like a million movies with that as the plot right now. Interestingly enough fucking the simpsons early on Put a lot of time into like with a character. Clearly themed after bill gates Like a subverting that trope which is is good. Now as that last quote made clear. Bill was accepted into harvard after after college. creeper not his grades and impressive computing. Resume made him a shoo-in he started college in nineteen seventy-three and he lived in a dorm house that was filled with all of the math and science nerds because even harvard had standards. They wanted to keep those kids away from the dorms where kids were getting laid basically now during his sophomore year bill gates met steve balmer the future. Ceo of microsoft and presently most famous for allegedly throwing chairs at employees during meetings. I can confirm from my time as a tech journalist that he smells like onions. I don't know what he's smelled like in college. But i can confirm that in like two thousand and ten. He smells like onions now. Bomber in gates were opposites in a number of ways. Steve was extremely involved in everything. Bill was aggressively uninvolved. Anything but his own little world of computers that washington post article i quoted from includes a few interesting tidbits like that both got perfect scores on their. Sat's were obsessed with napoleon. There's something meaningful. In the fact that bill gates loves napoleon mark zuckerberg augusta. Caesar not co winky dink. But all right. I'm just saying it should be illegal to have classics education. We should we especially for for that type of white guy you know. I know the only thing you learn about as genocide. We're throwing all the statues into the sea. Don't tell this kid about hadrian. Now the reports we have from gates in college make it clear that he was. He was gross He didn't use sheets instead. He slept directly on his door mattress. Because making his bed was too hard bomber. Did the same again. All boys in college or gross. I don't know it's just funny to me now. Gates's main extracurricular during college poker which he was terrible at he lost so much money that he eventually gave steve bomber his checkbook for safekeeping because otherwise he was gonna lose all of his money getting his ass kicked poker now while all this was happening. Personal computing was in. Its infancy nineteen seventy four marked. The release of what a lot of people will call the first personal computer. The bear eighty eighty Now paul allen who at this point had graduated and got a job at the honeywell corp immediately rushed to bills dorm with an ad for the for the altar eighty. He and gates quickly wrote a letter to the computers manufacturer. Mit s asking if they could write software for it in basic emit was sure you guys can like. We'll pay you to write software if you come up with software. That's good but you better hurry because a shitload of people have actually been making the same offer to us personally. Competing is kinda like starting to blow up in this period of time. So both men. Basically dropped everything else in their lives to move to albuquerque where mit s was headquartered and write software for the first personal computer. This paul and quit his job at honeywell and gates dropped out of harvard in his junior year. In nineteen. seventy five to move to albuquerque and start a company. You might have expected this to have gone over poorly with his parents. But again bill seems kinda hit the mom and dad lottery in a lotta ways when questioned about it decades later his father said being a college dropout wasn't precisely what my wife and i had envisioned for any of our children but bill seemed to know what he was doing. Very supportive family. This get has any didn't know what he was doing. You have to give the man credit for that allen and gates formed a consultant company to sell software to all tear. They called it micro dash soft Tell this is going. Everything needed dash back in the back in the seventies the napster gagging to come and say get rid of the garrett of the dash or is that is that now. What's going to happen. No the napster guy had not been born at this point. Sean sean parker. Sean parker who. Let's make legally actionable claims. Sean parker so bill and or bill and paul hired friends of theirs to help them produce software including a kid named monte davidoff who they had a piece of software that would allow computers to perform greater ranges of calculations. The three all live together in a two bedroom apartment david off slept on the living room floor in two thousand and he told the washington post that although they were friends gates could be something of a dick quote there was definitely a supervisory dynamic. Bill could get very loud if he felt. You weren't getting something. He would say the same thing louder. He likes strong interchanges. I prefer not to work in that way now. This is the period of time a lot of microsoft stories. Come from you know. The scr scrappy upstarts on a shoestring budget building a globe spanning mega corporation from their living room or their garage or whatever right The reality is that gates was back from the beginning by family money. There was never any time when the company wasn't making much money but there was never a period of time when gates was head any financial worries yet off worked for them for two summers and then they offered him a permanent job but he had to say no because he couldn't afford to drop out of harvard. He told the post that delegates had only been able to drop out of harvard to start his company because his family was rich. Quote the way bill. And i thought about money was very different. He would tell all of his friends. Just call me collect. He knew there were. He knew he wasn't going to have to support himself coming out of college. And the fact that bill never ever in his whole life worried about money in a meaningful way does not mean. He wasn't obsessed with it in fact his lust for profitability depending on who you ask had a somewhat disastrous impact on the growing computing community in the early days computing was in fact a community. These were the days when any given computer was a diy project. Most personal computers. Like you would have to solder parts of it together to like. Get him working or to add things like using fucking tools and shit too like anyone. Who has a computer is doing this shit. You're coding programs on like these weird paper. Things like roy right. Yeah so it's very much. Diy so it's actually not all that different from the three d. printed gun community is today like it's everything is shared. All of these programs are shared. You don't pay money for them. Usually you just like oh you or if someone buys it. They didn't just copy it and send it for free to their friends like. That's the way this stuff really works in computer. Hobbyists teddy powerful sense of solidarity in the early days of microsoft gates and allen. Were selling software to those hobbyists. Only not everyone who used microsoft software actually paid for it. A lot of these people were poor. Buying a computer was all they could afford to do so. They weren't buying the software and there was a brisk open trade free software from each according to their resources to everyone. According to their needs microsoft programs were very popular with the set. One expert later wrote hobbyists loved it. They loved it so much. They were willing to sin tape paper.

"Now. The fight made it clear to his father and mother that things were getting out of control so they took him to a therapist bill later recalls telling them. I'm telling the therapist. I'm at war with my parents over. Who is in control. The therapists told his mom and dad that their son was going to eventually win his struggle for independence so the best bet was to let him have his freedom now and see how he handled it. So that's what they did. They took him out of his old school and enrolled him in a private school lakeside. prep And the idea was that this school would give him more freedom and that that would resolve his baby girl problems. I don't know the extent to which resolved is behavioral issues. Because i think he kept being addict but he he absolutely loved the school and it was. It's it's what made him going to specific. School is what made him into the man that he became. And i. it's here. I should probably note that people have studied in this series. Bill gates is absolutely the luckiest. I think he might have the most privileged upbringing i have ever encountered and that includes like fucking kings like right in terms of like the time he was born at the time he was raised. The resources family had like the not only but it's also like not only. Did they have money not only grow up in a time when like opportunity. Exploding in this country not only parents upper class but they were thoughtful and understanding in excess of the norm for his era. They were willing to give him flames. That exactly. that was very few people are so. Just comprehensively the luckiest man. I've ever heard the also looked into a good therapist. Which people who have tried to find therapists can say is not a common thing especially finding a therapist. Answer to behavioral problems is going to be. He's gotta let your kid do shit. you know. it's all good. It's a good approach. Yeah the it's all good approach. And then he lucked into lakeside. Prep which not only was like a a lot of rich kids. Go to fancy schools lakeside. Prep was not just a fancy school. It was a school with a computer. Now bill started when he was thirteen in nineteen sixty eight. An era for which ninety nine percent of the term computer meant either. Some shit nasa uses or like saifi nonsense bradley less than one percent of one percent of thirteen year old boys had meaningful access to computers in this time period and bill gates was one of them. Let's app just staggeringly fortunate like at that time. The the other the other possible meeting or access to computers literally a human being who computes now like a guy with an abacus so the reason that bill school had a computer is that when he was in eighth grade. The mothers club at lakeside. Held a rummage sale and they used the profits from it to by teletype model thirty three. As are terminal And they also rented a block of time on a general electric computer so bill gets access to this machine because the moms club at his school is forward thinking enough to be like. We should probably get a computer. So these kids can that seems like it might be the future And bill is immediately obsessed with machine. He starts programming. He starts creating new like languages and shit and he was so good at actually and this is another ridiculous stroke of luck. He was so good at programming that his school said he no longer had to go to math class so he could spend more time on. My god had a goal. Wrigley the luckiest boy who ever lived. Also it's like at the time. Was that even like a thing that made sense like i mean no luck in i mean again you were a smart person and you were someone who look forward thinking because writers a lotta people eaters. We're gonna be. The future will be good to have done a little bit of high school math. I guess yeah. I mean i assume he was ahead of it like they were also does good enough in math. He's not gonna it's fine. Yeah now when. I say there are no self made billionaires shit like this is why because there's no way that bill gates becomes the multi-billionaire is today if he doesn't have both this and this is not walk like leaving out exploitation and stuff. There's no way he becomes a billionaire if he doesn't have the privilege and wild fortunate to have access to this computer and like a lot of most rich kids did not have this opportunity. Bill benefited at an early age. Not just from wealth and social privilege but from a wonderfully supportive community of moms who had the foresight to buy a computer for their kids to use in school that was progressive enough to let him like spend his class time. Learning to program and bill blossomed with all this additional freedom. his dad later recalled bill realized quote. Hey i don't have to prove my position relative to my parents. I just have to figure out what i'm doing. Relative to the world and build a side of the thing he really wanted to do was get good at computers. His first computer program was a tic tac toe game. He programmed that let users play against the computer. He was not the only kid obsessed with the computer to other boys. Paul allen and kint fell in love with this machine. paul. Allen is the microsoft founder. He died not too long. i think. Yeah oh man it is crazy just like you and your buddy from high school becoming billionaires together. Yeah because some moms sell junk in by a computer. Yeah it's one of those tic-tac-toe things like your mom's in one thousand nine hundred sixties rummage sale and then the big domino is a million die of the corona virus because vaccine access locked out. I mean i went to kind of a hippy. High school so the only equivalent to that would be if we had been able to be the all the humans on earth with access to weed fourteen of changed shit. If your school like he doesn't have to go to math class. He's against smoking man. If only they'd given bill gates we'd instead of a computer he just would have been really into grand funk railroad and we could have solved avoided a lot of problems. But you know what is in grand funk railroad andrew the products and services that support this podcast one of which is grand funk railroad. Our primary podcast on.

"What are you reading bill. Volume encyclopedia tire encyclopedia. God i guess. I have to say if you catch your small child. Young the encyclopedia from beginning to end. You gotta like you gotta put some poison in his food or something you gotta you gotta slow down. He's not going anywhere good. Yeah give him get him on drugs you know just give auditor get him to start. Have him start drinking. That does explain encarta. Yeah it doesn't just chilling encarta. It's it's it's. It's a shame that after the encyclopedia giving him so much joy as a child he went on to commit such a crime against encyclopedia. Kind of isn't so his parents liked that he was a a big reader and they would reward his hunger for knowledge by offering to buy him any book he wanted. It should not be a surprise that he grew up super nerdy and was bullied from an early age for being small and weird and obsessed with books. Which you know say i was. I was the kid who always have like a book underneath the table in like math class. I got in a lot of trouble for that. Yeah i i was definitely a little bit of that by a also just like. That's not just why he was. He just is such unpleasant we. Yeah i think he was probably a real real dick Just judging by everything that comes later because it wasn't just the books. Yeah so obviously. Getting bullied caused him to withdraw further into his own. Little world This started to worry his parents. His dad attempted to counter this by making young bill. Workers agreed or at their parties. And this a waiter at professional functions for his locker exhausting family. I mean a family that has parties that requires a greeter. Yeah that's wild shit hole. Yuck again this whole family. Could you get him get him to start drinking. you know. yeah they have a problem. You know that's the thing family clearly does not have enough problems. They're really out there high society. They need more. Problems is what i'm saying. Holy faulk okay. Yeah you know. This is good as i feel like this child. Who's gonna possibly could have feel exonerating. It's a racing. I mean we'll get to that in a bit but it is amazing that like it really gives you an insight because his dad comes across very reasonable in interviews like just an extremely reasonable man. But then you realize like okay. Your kid was getting beat up in school so your solution was to make him be a waiter to richly. Thought that okay. So you you. You didn't really have everything together either when you were like. That's a weird move. What a horrible solution. Yeah oh my god okay. Yeah okay now. Most interviews will say the by age eleven when it came to like intellect. Bill was more or less an adult. We're not talking about maturity here but his ability to discuss international affairs and business and like generally he was. He was a very smart kid. He was by the time he was eleven or twelve. Not really acting like a kid anymore. his dad later recalled quote. It was interesting. And i thought it was great. Now i will say to you. His mother did not appreciate it. It bothered her and she was bothered. Because bills intellect made him elegant and led to clashes with his parents. And i'm going to quote from the wall street journal here the sun against his mother's instinct to control him sparking a battle of wills all those things that she had expected of him a cleanroom being at the dinner table on time not biting his pencils suddenly turned a source of a big source of friction. The two fell into explosive arguments. He was nasty. His sister says of her brother. Mr gates senior played the role of peacemaker. He'd sort of break them apart and calm. Things down says the eldest sibling. The battles reached a climax at dinner one night when bill gates was around twelve over the table. He shouted at his mother in what today. He describes as utter total sarcastic. Smart ass kid rudeness. His father responded by throwing cold glass of water at his son's face to which his son responded sarcastically. Thanks for the shower. This doesn't sound fun. What a tool unbelievable tool really young sheldon lives billion. Fuck fuck you child. Bill gates and i mean again. This is why more children need to drink Yeah yeah slow him down. We got slow down generation. What is it after. Z z one. Eventually it's going to be simply generation final generation final. Thank god after z. Is there a after z. I don't think. I don't think it's happened yet. But like what. The bill gates story informs us is that somewhere out. There is a kid who could become the future. Bill gates if somebody doesn't put a steel reserve in his hand fast. Yeah like boone's farm. Kids love boone's far giving some boone. His get rich. I'm going to start a charity. That just distributes boone's farm to precocious children just brings sparks back Sparks is good for kids. Yeah that's how basically guy kids. It's an energy drink will make dumber now The throwing water in his son's face story is a story. You'll find a lot written articles about bill particularly in the early two thousands now. This is the period. We're talking about like how what led to this day but the early two thousands was when bill started stepping away from microsoft and into philanthropy. And so there were suddenly a rush of articles like because he had been. I know people don't really know this. We're gonna be talking about why. I think people who weren't sokoto during the nineties. He was like the demon to the devil to a lot of people in the nineties and then throughout the arts. He got really rehabilitated. His image debt because he went from like the evil overlord of the mega corporation. That was ryan everything up to like the guy curing malaria. Basically it is true because because it is a little hard to remember how pervasive microsoft yep like literally. Yeah unless you are a very unpleasant bill gates type could have a computer without. Yeah it was on it. Yeah yeah it was. It was a different era of technology. And so this for whatever reason when. This of articles came out kind of burnishing bills reputation in the early two thousand. This story wound up on them a lot and they tended to portray this moment his dad throwing water in his face as like a turning point for young bill gates where he realized. Oh i'm being an asshole and where it is like when everything kinda like turned around for him and his family I've run across other articles that were written in a similar time period and were less of like shameless plugs. Yeah and these articles make it clear that his behavioral problems went deeper than that and there was not a clean break when they stopped as as gates and his family to portray. I found a washington post article that noted bill spent so much time in his room during his adolescence that his mom would buzz him on the house intercom to ask what he would do. It was doing and he would shout back and thinking. Have you ever tried thinking so again. He's he's a real. He's a real asshole about being sorry. Yeah my mom would a slap the shit out of me. If i'd say it's not that that's good but like i would have gotten. The ships left out for saying.

"Charley right now to learn more so we got this question here. Which i i really appreciate nine enjoy. Which is which is teri. Who says charlie. I always love your show. I wrote a year ago. That found she was a plant. Your show today may be proud what you should be proud terry. He was a plant he was a plant by the democrat party and by the globalist try to infiltrate donald trump's presidency with the only issue that could disarm us though other plants would have been taking seriously as a plant of public health and since we've had a decline of science our country over the last ten years. We didn't really know how to deal with dr fauci. You see dr fauci. We joke around. We say that he's saint fao she and lord foul but he sort of does have a religious undertone to him. He sort of has a. You're not allowed to question me. Sit down and obey. There's almost this. I am the divine and you are not because if you dare question dr fauci he would just argue using logical fallacy from authority saying that. Well i know this better than you do. I know it. Because i am a public health official and you are not and so we have these emails that show that dr fauci should be criminally investigated. He lied multiple times. He lied to you. He lied to me lied to the public. He lied to donald trump. She taught he agreed with new york times. Reporters that insulted american citizens and praised chinese. He talked at length of chinese government officials. You talked privately about how masks were highly ineffective and that you shouldn't use them. Dr fauci talked at length with bill gates and why he talked to bill gates. I don't quite know. But i have some ideas. Why does bill gates have so much power in our country. Is that a good thing. Do you think the founding fathers of this greatest document ever written in the history political document ever written in the history of the world that is centered around consent which means permission. You can't do something unless i give you. Permission decentralisation check and balance meaning that we're not gonna have too much power in one person's hand so here's a very good question as i explore this idea of checks and balances with you. What is the check and balance against dr fauci. What is the check and balance against bill gates. So for example here is what our check and balance against nancy pelosi is. She will not be speaker of the house in two thousand twenty two the two thousand twenty three. Here's what our check and balances against donald trump. the impeach him twice and they constantly held him in investigations. What is the check and balance against doctor out. You know you might say well. It's all the different congressional hearings. We've had with dr fauci. But dr fauci being a clever a moral treacherous deceitful bureaucrat. He knows how to navigate congress. That's why they put him there. You see the skill set. That dr anthony fauci has is one of serpent. It's cutting its how to be two faced. Say one thing and do another you see. Dr fauci is not an ethical man. You could see here that he was lying. He was receiving information about the bio engineered the virus. You very well could have called it for what it was. Maybe we would have had some sort of national unity against holding the chinese communist party accountable and the evil immoral chinese communist party government but instead we have waited till now when we now have a chinese communist party. Plant president joe biden. Who is an employee or subcontractor of the chinese communist party. Because his son hunter biden is largely funded by them but the skill set that dr fauci has is not one that allows us to check and balance him. And then what's our check and balance against bill gates and bill gates. Is someone that really is a trickster. Bill gates is a guy you gotta watch out for. You see bill gates a guy that has a lot of money and no purpose. That's a really dangerous person. Let me say that again. When someone has a lot of money and no purpose you gotta watch out for that. That is an autocrat in the making so when someone has a ton of resources and they're not really sure what to do with it they're going to start to try to impose you because the power kick that supersedes all that transcends all i should say the the power high that is greater than all others is the one where people are able to say. I control you. it's power power sake. it's not art. It's not yachts not traveling. It's not beauty. it's not wine. it's not food. The common denominator is a lust for people that have money to want to convert that money into having a boot on your neck the pattern. That manifesto replicates itself throughout history is people that want to say i'm in charge of you. Now that's a sadistic way to live your life by the way but that's exactly. What bill gates is motivations. That's what dr fauci is. Motivation is they. Don't want to go back to a place where we have self government which is an attribute of our constitutional republic and what is self government by the way self-government is first and foremost you control yourself. You got to act ethically. You have to use liberty to pursue virtue. Not that you are that the government is yourself that is semantically wrong or or technically wrong so we now have the situation where we are being governed by a globalist billionaire. Hundred fifty billion dollars is network and a self righteous bureaucrat. Who has a skill for treachery. You must ask yourself this question. If someone has a skill.

"Really going on here. You have the head of the nih achieve bureaucrat. Teaming up with the second. Wealthiest man in the world are third wealthiest man in the world. Is that a republic. Is that consent of the governed. Did we give permission for this to happen. You might have bought microsoft windows beyond that. Did you give bill gates the power and the authority making public health decisions. And then the people that run our media networks. They're somehow surprised. That people have some vaccination hesitancy that people are all of a sudden a little bit skeptical because you have one of the wealthiest people in the world and pathalogical liar pushing the vaccine on the population. Maybe there's something there or maybe. The american people are a lot more wise than and gates. Maybe they have an agenda that they are trying to put in some of these emails. Were not allowed to be disclosed because they said only if it's pending an investigation is dr fauci undercurrent criminal investigation. Probably not because fao. She has done the dirty work of the entire power. Hungry left not to mention bill gates is buying up all of our farmland america. Bill gates is pushing the entire world to again can synthetic meet. Meanwhile the world's number one meat processor in the world gets taken down by a cyber attack. Jbs borjas supposed to believe. This is all a coincidence. And just take the vaccine..

Dos from microsoft. Other companies also came to microsoft and purchase dos thus dos became the standard operating system. At that time dos however only had a command line interface and no graphical interface to work with. There was no concept of a mouse. Users used a keyboard to type in commands. That opened her edited files. Once dos became famous apple came to microsoft and asked them to create excel word and version of basic for their macintosh computers. When bill gates went to apple to demonstrate these software he noticed a graphical user interface of macintosh which was driven by a mouse. It was more user friendly than dos. Bill gates immediately realized that microsoft would be or advocated if it didn't create a graphical user interface of its own so bill gates announced that microsoft was working on an operating system with a graphical user interface similar to macintosh's graphical user interface. He called this new operating system windows. Due to bill gates announcement dos users. Waited for windows rather than purchasing macintosh computers to experience. The new graphical user interface when microsoft eventually launched windows it was slow and cumbersome but the second version of windows was much better however it was similar to macintosh's graphical user interface so apple sued windows for stealing its graphics however the case was decided in favor of microsoft then the nineteen nineties. A company called netscape launched an internet browser called navigator. It became quickly famous because of its graphical interface and the ability of independent developers to add additional functionalities as plug ins this made. Many users believe that netscape navigator had the potential to replace windows so to keep its ship from sinking. Microsoft launched a campaign to destroy navigator. I it launched. Its own browser.

They realized how lucrative programming could be so they wanted to quit school and start a software company. How ever bills parents did not permit him to quit school instead. They forced him to join harvard to study law. Two years after bill joined harvard. Allen showed bill and advertisement showing new microcomputer called alter eighty eight hundred those days. The most common computers were mainframe computers which occupied an entire room. The personal computers that we use today were so small. In comparison to these mainframe computers so when they were invented personal. Computers were named microcomputers bill and allen modified an existing programming language called basic. That runs only on mainframe computers so that it could run on microcomputers. Then they sold it to the company selling alter eighty eight hundred for three thousand dollars while retaining its copyright now that they started making money by writing software.

"See it. However alan bill hadn't actually written any code. They just wanted to see if the company would be interested in purchasing a version of basic for microcomputers. So when the president of its asked to see the code they started working day and night to write the code but they didn't have an altar eighty eight hundred to test their code on hence they simulated it on other computers in harvard's computer lab. Bill started working very hard to finish the code. He would code the entire day in harvard's computer lab sleep at the computer. Wake up the next day and pick up programming at the exact place where he left off the previous day for working several days like this. They developed a newer version of basic. However they still did not know if it would work on alter but despite their doubts about their new software. Allen flew to albuquerque and new mexico to show it commits to his surprise when he tested on an altar. Eighty eight hundred. The software worked perfectly so they sold it to midst for three thousand dollars while retaining. Its copyright now. Alan and bill knew that programming for microcomputers had a bright future. So alan persuaded bill to drop out of college together. They moved to albuquerque and established microsoft in nineteen seventy five the name which was the short form of microcomputer software initially had a hyphen between micro and soft but the hyphen was removed later mitts. The company allen and bill wrote code for was soon acquired by a bigger company but that did not stop at and bill from writing software. They continued writing software for other startups. Like apple tandy corporation and commodore in nineteen seventy nine. They moved to seattle soon. Microsoft started to become famous for its computer software. So ibm the largest computer maker at that. Time came knocking microsoft's stores. They wanted to know if bill had an operating system that they could use for their first microcomputer the ibm pc. An operating system acts is an interface between the user and the computers hardware by managing both the hardware and the software. It lets the user communicate with the computer even if he or. She doesn't know the computers language when ibm asked bill if he had an operating system for their microcomputer. Bill immediately answered that he had one. But the truth is he didn't have any functioning operating system so he quickly bought an operating system from another person in seattle for fifty thousand dollars. Then he developed it into ms dos. Which stands for disk operating system using dos users could navigate open and edit files on their computer through a command line. Instead of a graphical user interface like windows microsoft then sold dos to ibm microsoft however retained the right to license. The software to other companies after all writing software costs time effort and money and bill gates. That people should pay to use the software then till then customers either rode their own software or the software came pre installed with the hardware so ibm thought people would only pay for the hardware and never pay for the software. Therefore they didn't have a problem with microsoft selling ms dos to other companies however just like bill had anticipated other companies like compaq also purchased. Ms dos like ibm. They decided that purchasing an existing operating system like ms dos would be cheaper than creating their own operating system so ms dos became the standard operating system for the computers of that era as a result. Microsoft sales rose from seven point. Five million dollars in nineteen eighty two sixteen million dollars in nineteen eighty-one thus by nineteen eighty-one microsoft had become a familiar name across the usa. If not the entire world however two years later when the company was making huge profits allen the man who played a vital role in microsoft's formation and success left the company.

He left microsoft year later. After alan left the company microsoft became a multinational company establishing offices in great britain and japan by nineteen eighty-three almost thirty percent of all computers in the world.
