Bill Gates Land Purchase in North Dakota triggers Probe


Bill Gates Land Purchase in North Dakota triggers Probe

Trusts and corporations can’t own ranches or farmland in North Dakota, state authorities say

RT News

North Dakota’s attorney general has sent a letter to Red River Trust, an outfit linked to billionaire Bill Gates, over its recent purchase of a large potato farm. Attorney General Drew Wrigley’s office warned the trust of potential violations of state and federal law and asked for more information.

Corporations or limited liability companies are “prohibited from owning or leasing farmland or ranchland in the state of North Dakota” or “engaging in farming or ranching,” according to the letter sent by Wrigley’s office to Red River Trust in Kansas, the agricultural news website AgWeek reported on Wednesday. 

The letter’s existence was confirmed by the Bismarck-based TV station KFYR, which published a copy of the first page. The letter, dated June 21, was also sent to Campbell Farms offices in Grafton, North Dakota. AgWeek revealed on June 13 that Red River had bought the company from the brothers Bill, Greg and Tom Campbell in November 2021, paying $13.5 million for 2,100 acres of their potato-farming operation.

The law also places “certain limitations on the ability of trusts to own farmland or ranchland,” said the letter, addressed to Red River trustee Peter Headley. “Our office needs to confirm how your company uses this land and whether this use meets any of the statutory exceptions.”

If Red River can show that it has such an exemption, the AG’s office will close their probe, but if they are found to be violating the law, they will have to sell the land within a year or face a penalty of “up to $100,000,” according to the letter.

Gates, who made his fortune at Microsoft, retired to pursue a variety of causes – from vaccines around the world to buying up land in the US – through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Gates has suggested his interest in agriculture had to do with seeds and biofuel, and advocated for switching to synthetic meat as a way to combat climate change.

Using a network of corporations, trusts and asset management companies, the software mogul had acquired more than 240,000 acres (over 97,000 hectares) of farmland as of 2021, with LandReport.com dubbing him “America’s top farmland owner.”

Nolte: AG Merrick Garland Refuses to Enforce Laws Protecting SCOTUS

The pro-baby-slaughtering protests, chanting, and screaming outside the homes of six Supreme Court justices violate federal law, and Joe Biden’s attorney general refuses to enforce that law.

Here it is in black and white: 18 U.S. Code § 1507 – Picketing or parading:

Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

The law is strikingly clear. It is a crime to protest “in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge” with “the intent of influencing any judge.”

And yet, even though this is the law, hundreds of pro-abortion loons are flagrantly violating this law by doing exactly that: protesting outside the residences of six justices in the hopes of persuading them to rule a certain way.

Now, it is a perfectly valid position to oppose this law, to see it as a violation of the First Amendment, to believe it is unconstitutional. As long as the protests are peaceful, why should We the People be restricted in our protests? It’s also possible that the ban on protesting near courthouses is unconstitutional, but that the ban on protesting near someone’s house in a residential neighborhood is constitutional. The Supreme Court has upheld many restrictions on the time, place, or manner of speech.

What’s more, what is wrong with trying to influence a judge’s ruling?

But that’s not the point here…

The point is that the law is the law is the law, and it is Attorney General Merrick Garland’s sworn duty to uphold federal law, and he is not doing that. Why? Well, does anyone doubt that Garland and the lawless White House that appointed him would like nothing more than to see the endless and demonic slaughter of innocent, unborn children continue?

Garland is pro-abortion. That’s why he’s not enforcing the law. This has nothing to do with principle. If it were pro-life protesters out there, you can bet Garland would have already rounded them up and thrown away the key.

Once again, it is plain to see that in this country, there is one law for people on the left and another for people on the right.

Nevertheless, according to the Constitution, the legislature writes the laws. The executive branch, which Garland is part of, enforces that law. Period. End of story. By not enforcing the law, Garland is violating his constitutional oath. It’s not up to him to decide which laws he will and won’t enforce. He is also setting a terrible precedent by allowing this brazen lawbreaking to continue. What’s to stop future attorneys general from doing the same?

It comes down to this… If Garland disagrees with a law, the most effective way to see that law overturned is to enforce it. Arrests could result in court challenges that kill the law.

Some people blame Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) for not enforcing the law. Well, unless the feds deputize the local police force, a state governor cannot enforce federal law. That’s up to federal law enforcement, which Merrick Garland oversees.

Virginia Deputy AG Says She Was Forced Out, Denies Resignation Claims By Miyares’ Office And Washington Post

Monique Miles, who until recently was deputy attorney general for Virginia, told The Federalist that claims by The Washington Post and the office of Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares that she resigned on Thursday over a Facebook post she made on Jan. 6, 2021, are false.

“My understanding was, this is not something that’s voluntary,” Miles said.

On Thursday, The Washington Post published a hit piece about Miles and reported that she had resigned after the Post “questioned the [attorney general’s] office about Facebook posts she had made.” The Post quoted Victoria LaCivita, communications director for Miyares’ office, saying, “Ms. Miles has resigned from her position at the Office of the Attorney General.”

The social media posts in question that the Post dug up and presented to Miyares’ office included a post from Jan. 6 in which Miles said, “News Flash: Patriots have stormed the Capitol. No surprise. The deep state has awoken the sleeping giant. Patriots are not taking this lying down. We are awake, ready and will fight for our rights by any means necessary.” As the Post noted, Miles later edited her comments.

“I revised my comments on the Jan. 6 post as I found out more about the developing news,” Miles explained to The Federalist. “I didn’t go to the Capitol, so I have no firsthand knowledge of what went down there. … I think there is a right to peacefully protest as part of the First Amendment and a right to engage in civil discourse. At no time did I condone lawlessness, violence, and insurrection.”

Miles also told The Federalist she never resigned and was instead forced out. “They said this was a heartbreaking decision for them and they saw no other option than to ask for my resignation to avoid controversy. They said I could take the rest of the day off to process and then come back and get my things from the office after hours the next day … and then I found out that they reported to the media that I had resigned.”

“At no time did I submit my resignation, I merely went home to process,” she emphasized. “I was even asked to surrender my badge, ID, and computer, which shows that I was being shown the door. Later that evening, I was called and asked to give my response of whether I was resigning. I said I need more time to process and that’s when I was informed that I was officially terminated.”

Miles said she respects Miyares and the agenda he’s pursuing, adding, “I recognize how hard it is for some leaders to defend their people. This just wasn’t a fight that the AG’s office wanted to wage, but I am here waging that fight against the left’s cancel culture myself.”

“The left will die on their swords to protect their people,” she said. “But where are the folks on the right who protect their people?”

Miles also criticized the Post’s account, which, she noted, went so far as to quote her high school teacher. “The investigation that [the Post’s Justin Jouvenal] did was something that was a whole ‘nother level — it shows what a threat they see me as as a female black conservative civil rights lawyer,” Miles said. “They don’t want us conservative black females to have an opinion, they just want us to shut up and disappear.”

In a statement to Newsmax, Miyares’ office said, “Ms. Miles surrendered her state government ID and equipment before leaving the premises after a conversation with our Chief Deputy Attorney General. It is our understanding that she resigned at that time.”

“Nevertheless, the Office of Attorney General has parted ways with Ms. Miles for lack of transparency during her initial interviews for the position,” the statement continued. “We appreciate her service and wish her well in the future.”

Communications Director Victoria LaCivita provided a similar statement to The Federalist, saying “Our office has parted ways with Ms. Miles. We appreciate her service and we wish her well in her future endeavors.”

Miles also denied the claim that she failed to be transparent in her interviews. “In the interview process I was never asked any questions about Jan. 6 or whether I thought the election was valid,” she explained. “The one question that was asked in the job application that I filled out online was whether they should be aware of any controversy. And at that time a lot of good freedom-loving Americans were asking questions about the election and commenting on what happened on Jan. 6, so I didn’t see that as controversial.”

“There needs to be accountability for people who want to shut off civil discourse by engaging in ad hominem attacks,” Miles added, noting that Democrats such as former Vice President Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, and other opponents of Trump in 2016 have questioned election results in the past. “Yet when the candidate I supported in the election didn’t win and I made statements questioning the outcome of the election and supporting my candidate,” she said, “the left labeled me as a conspiracy theorist, which I’m not. “

“We should all be able to ask questions and engage in civil discourse with each other as citizens of this democratic republic without people lobbing ad hominem attacks to shut down the discussion for fear of an alternate narrative gaining popularity or facts being disclosed,” Miles added. “Stifling others’ views and ideas is a threat to our democracy.”

Virginia’s New Attorney General Launches Probe Into Loudoun County Schools Over Sexual Assault Cover-Ups

Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares announced on Saturday that his office has opened an investigation into Loudoun County Public Schools for covering up multiple allegations of sexual assaults dating back several years. The announcement came hours after Miyares was sworn into office alongside Gov. Glenn Youngkin and Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears.

“Loudoun County Public Schools covered up a sexual assault on school grounds for political gain, leading to an additional assault of a young girl,” he said in a statement. “Virginians have dealt with the horrific aftermath of these scandals, without understanding how or why they were able to happen. Virginians deserve answers – they want transparency and accountability.”

The new attorney general also announced that his office would be launching a separate probe into the Virginia Parole Board for purportedly breaking the law by releasing “murder[er]s, rapists, and cop killers early on their sentences without notifying the victims.”

“These investigations are not to solely go after or bring criminal charges against any one actor, but to learn what mistakes were made so that no other Parole Board or schools ever repeats them,” he said. “I now ask you for time and patience as my team begins the investigations. I am a big believer in measuring twice and cutting once, and that’s what we plan to do here.”

Miyares went on to promise transparency throughout the investigative process, saying that he “will be releasing [his] findings to the public” when “they are ready.”

“Virginians will receive the answers they have desperately asked for,” he added.

The inquiry into the northern Virginia school district comes after a Daily Wire investigation found that Loudoun’s school board failed to “record multiple known incidents of alleged sexual assault in schools dating back several years, despite a law that requires statistics about school safety incidents to be reported to the public and which includes provisions holding school superintendents personally liable for violations.”

A review of the county’s handling of two alleged sexual assaults incidents from last year was officially launched in Nov. 2021. While complete, Loudoun County Public Schools is actively withholding the release of the report, citing “attorney-client privilege and personnel information concerning identifiable individuals.”

Australia declares war on ‘trolls’

RT – 28 Nov, 2021 02:10

The Australian government will introduce new legislation forcing social media companies to “unmask” anonymous users who post offensive comments, or make them pay defamation fines if they are unable or refuse to do so.

The new initiative seeks to define social media giants as publishers, making them responsible for the user-generated content on their platforms, as well as to introduce special mechanisms through which anyone can file a complaint and demand a post takedown if they think they are being defamed, bullied or harassed, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced during a televised press briefing on Sunday.

The online world should not be a wild west where bots and bigots and trolls and others are anonymously going around and can harm people. 

If a platform refuses to delete offensive content, a court may order it to reveal the identity of the anonymous commenter. In case the company again refuses or is unable to identify the troll – then it will be held ultimately liable and will have to pay any resulting fines.

“Free speech is not being allowed to cowardly hide in your basement and sledge and slur and harass people anonymously and seek to destroy their lives,” Morrison stated. “In a free society such as Australia where we value our free speech, it is only free when that is balanced with the responsibility for what you say.”

Morrison offered little insight into details of the proposed legislation, or if it will be up for public debate, but said he expects strong support from parliament. He previously hinted at an imminent crackdown on online anonymity during a G20 summit last month, where he said “the rules that apply in the real world should apply in the digital world.” However, it remains unclear how exactly the Australian government expects social media companies to verify the identities of their users.

The new measures, according to Attorney-General Michaelia Cash, are also supposed to bring more “clarity” to Australia’s High Court’s decision back in September, which ruled that media are liable for user comments even if the stories themselves are not defamatory. The ruling forced several media including CNN to shut their Facebook pages for Australian users over uncertainty and the risk of defamation claims.

Powerful Australian politician steps aside as a minister after losing historic no confidence vote

  • SA Deputy Premier and Attorney-General, Vickie Chapman, steps down
  • Ms Chapman received a ‘vote of no confidence’ last Thursday
  • Vote is a result of failed $40 million Kangaroo Island development application
  • Parliamentary committee recommended her suspension over conflict of interest

By Australian Associated Press

Published: 09:31 AEDT, 22 November 2021 | Updated: 09:58 AEDT, 22 November 2021

South Australia‘s Deputy Premier and Attorney-General will temporarily stand aside from her roles after state parliament passed a vote of no confidence in her but maintains she has done nothing wrong and will not resign.

Vickie Chapman has been engulfed by conflict-of-interest claims after a parliamentary inquiry last week found she had repeatedly misled parliament over a rejected Kangaroo Island development application.

Ms Chapman told The Advertiser she’s standing aside to allow SA Ombudsman Wayne Lines to conduct an ‘independent’ investigation into her rejection in August of the application to build a timber port on the island.

South Australia’s Deputy Premier and Attorney-General, Vickie Chapman (pictured), has stood aside from her positions during an independent investigation into conflict-of-interest claims.

Ms Chapman’s family owns a rental property on the island near the rejected development and was accused of therefore having a conflict of interest when she made that decision.
