ND Attorney General Now Targeting Bill Gates After His Recent Mass Farmland Purchase, “Our Office Needs to Confirm How Your Company Uses This Land…”

Billionaire Bill Gates might be in hot water, courtesy of the Attorney General of North Dakota. In fact, the issue in question concerns a recent bit of farmland that Mr. Gates has purchased. In an outbreak of expenditure, Gates looked into North Dakota’s Pembina County and promptly decided he ought to buy six parcels of it, which he even more promptly did.
It was this past Tuesday that the Attorney General’s office issued out a letter to the Red River Trust where it demanded an explanation on just how the company will use the land. It inquired further to make sure the land would be used in accordance with North Dakota Corporate Farming Laws.
It was recently reported that Agricultural Commissioner Doug Goehring said “I’ve gotten a big earful on this from clear across the state, it’s not even from that neighborhood. Those people are upset, but there are others that are just livid about this.”
Per the DailyCaller “the letter stipulated that under North Dakota law, there are “certain limitations on the ability of trusts to own farmland or ranchland.”
“The Corporate or Limited Liability Company Farming Law has certain exceptions, such as permitting registered family farms or allowing the use of the land for business purposes,” the letter writes. Those in violation are subject to a civil fine of $100k the letter states.
“Our office needs to confirm how your company uses this land and whether this use meets any of the statutory exceptions, such as business purpose exceptions, such as the business purpose exception, so that we may close this case and file it in our inactive files,” the letter adds.
It was further reported by New York Post that an entity with ties to billionaire Bill Gates bought 2,100 acres of potato farmland in northern North Dakota — prompting the state’s top prosecutor to intervene after complaints from local residents.
Public records cited by AgWeek show that the Gates-linked Red River Trust bought the farmland from the owners of Campbell Farms, a potato farming group that is headquartered in Grafton, North Dakota, which is about 50 miles from the Canadian border.
North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring told KFYR that public reaction to the purchase has been largely negative.
“I’ve gotten a big earful on this from clear across the state, it’s not even from that neighborhood,” said Goehring.
“Those people are upset, but there are others that are just livid about this.”
Gates, the billionaire tech mogul and philanthropist whose net worth was pegged by Bloomberg at $113 billion, has quietly amassed nearly 270,000 acres of farmland across the country, according to the Associated Press.
The Microsoft co-founder is considered the largest private owner of farmland in the country with some 269,000 acres across dozens of states, according to last year’s edition of the Land Report 100, an annual survey of the nation’s largest landowners.
Bill Gates has been in the public eye for a very long time. However, it’s only really in the last few years where he has had to deal with criticism and might not enjoy the steam bath of positive sentiment that he had in the past. This is cultural shift that this writer has been welcoming for some time.
If there is one, let’s call it, class of people that deserve critical looks, it would have to be, along with politicians and actors, the billionaire that people keep talking about who seems all too influential. George Soros, for instance, is another name that comes to mind. Public figures of this kind really should be judged guilty until proven innocent, at least in the public square.

IN A JUST SOCIETY,ONLY THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO CONTROL SUCH A VITAL RESOURCE THAT CAN DIRECTLY DETERMINE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS IF NOT MILLIONS OF PEOPLES SURVIVAL.AS A WHOLE.IT IS INHERENTLY DANGEROUS TO ALLOW ANY ONE PERSON TO CONTROL SUCH A VITAL RESOURCE,NOT TO MENTION EXTREMELY STUPID.

The Biden family coverup has been going on way too long.
What is he doing wrong? IF I had a billion dollars I would buy some farmland and forestland too.
what we have a problem with is that China is and has done the same thing and since Gates and China (china wants what we have) have “ties” to each other then I think it’s smart to investigate it, don’t you think?
Absolutely 👍🏼 The way this country is going after the big C word, I don’t trust their agenda one bit. 🥺😳
This man is trying to trust America into a communist country, what it going take to wake some people the hell up????
Maybe you would but are you wanting to kill billions of people like bill does he is evil and people that are not informed about who a land what this man has and wants to do need to educate them selves before sticking up for this man
He has an idea to repopulate the world. Where have you been. Starvation by not producing enough food would do that. He has also put medications into vaccines that sterilize ppl without their knowledge bc he wants to kill off future generation growth. He can’t make that decision for anyone
Gates is pushing use of synthetic meats in place of the real thing. One needs land to grow the materials needed to make the synthetic meats, right? Looks like Billy Boy is trying to become a farmer so he can head towards his next fortune.
He’s getting ready to starve this country out! If there’s no farmland to grow food he’ll be in control of everything in the grocery store! I seriously doubt that all the meat cutting plants that have burned down were accidents! Have you ever eaten fake meat? It’s nasty! Go to a Seventh Day Adventist health store and buy some Choplets and some Wham, and some burger replacement, Eating only veggies is much better!
Gates is a crooked POS
This is WRONG
NOW OUT OF THAT 290,000 ACRES HOW MUCH ARE PRODUCING FOOD
HOW MICH ARE CONTRIBUTING TO OUR SOCIETY
THIS IS WHY FARMERS ARE OUT OF LAND, OUT OF WORK
WE HAVE FOOD SHORTAGES
WE HAVE HIGH FOOD PRICES
THIS SHOULD BE ILLEGAL
BUT HEY HEY HAS BILLIONS RIGHT SO ITS OKAY
THATS WHATS WRONG WITH AMERICA
This is the man who made statements about how billions of people need to be culled and elimnated so people like him can continue living and now he buys up farm land, whats his intention to starve us?
If Gates or China don’t continue to use the land to produce crops, tax them so high that you can keep the people paid who lost their jobs when potato plant closes. If you raise taxes high enough they either sell or or the state can use the tax income like oil royalties to pay states citizens.
This man has a dimented mind. He hung out with Epstein so that’s all you need to know. He is behind all the food processing plants burning to the ground so he can buy all the acreage and start to starve the country. Democrats want a New World Order and he plays a big part of it being a huge donor to the Democrat Party. He is the very definition of evil.
Whoever sold this psycho the land should be ashamed of themselves, Gates is a criminal and a member of the WEF. He and his buddy Klaus Schwab aren’t hiding their agenda, and it includes mass depopulation of people worldwide. These people are wacko nut jobs that should be on trial for crimes against humanity
It also needs to be delved into as to WHO is selling the farmland out from Americans! Who sold the China? Follow the bread crumbs! We see who sold to wrinkled old Gates, they ALL need to be brought front and center to be questioned in depth! Also, get this land confiscated and back to American ownership! It is imperative!
