A new book suggests Bill Gates is ramping up the purchase of American farmland in the name of saving the planet but his efforts are really about fattening his own wallet.
The billionaire is one of the targets of a new book titled, “Controligarchs,” which hits bookshelves Tuesday and exposes the “billionaire class” for the seemingly hidden power their money holds over the lives of ordinary consumers.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is reportedly amassing more control over food production in the country as he continues to buy up farmland and invest in fake meat production and patented fertilizers.
“Author and investigative journalist Seamus Bruner — who led teams whose findings sparked multiple FBI investigations and congressional probes into the Clinton and Biden families — says that his research uncovered Gates’s efforts to buy up American farmland and invest in synthetic dairy and lab-grown meats in the name of preventing climate change,” Fox News reported. “In the process, Bruner says, Gates is doing more to inflate his net worth than eliminate carbon emissions.”
Bruner’s new book “peers into the future and provides a haunting and revelatory exposé of the leftist elite’s playbook for the next five years,” wrote author Peter Schweizer in the forward to “Controligarchs.”
“First, it was patented seeds and patented fertilizers, and now they are patenting meat alternatives,” Bruner said in an interview with Fox News Digital. “Banning cattle would grant effective monopolies to the alternative protein companies and benefit investors such as Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg and even BlackRock. Fake meats are about controlling the food market, not saving the planet.”
Gates is essentially gaining a monopoly of the nation’s food chain, according to one chapter of the book with a focus on “the war on farmers.”
“The takeover of the food system, like so many other control schemes in this book, began with the Rockefellers and was advanced by Bill Gates. Like most of their monopolies — from oil to software and eventually biotechnology — the takeover of food is all about controlling the intellectual property of food production through trademarks, copyrights, and patents,” the excerpt from the book reads.
“Now, the Controligarchs claim they can solve the climate crisis with new patented miracle products that happen to make themselves even richer and, once again, at the expense of small-scale independent farmers,” Bruner wrote.

Bruner went on to expose Gates, writing that “for more than a decade, as he was targeting the fertilizer industry, Bill Gates has also been quietly buying up large swaths of American farmland.”
“All told, Gates has spent over $1 billion dollars on farm acquisitions and the Agenda 2030-compliant technologies they now employ,” he continued. “When Gates buys tens of thousands of acres, he is not just buying the land — he is also buying the rights to water below ground. In addition to farms (and the irrigation) and fertilizer, Gates has been hunting for sizable interests in water and water treatment — a crucial component when seeking to control the agricultural industry.”
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. addressed “industrial-owned agriculture” and the purchase of U.S. farmland by China in a video message he posted this summer on social media.

Gates has reportedly already invested millions in synthetic meat companies such as Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, according to another chapter in the book which points out the hypocrisy of the “controligarchs.”
“And it should come as no surprise that while the peasants are expected to eat fermented fungi, lab-grown meats, and maggot milkshakes, the Controligarchs — with their private chefs — have no intention of doing the same if recent behavior is any indicator,” Bruner asserted.
“Bill Gates and Warren Buffett famously love eating beef burgers and steaks when Gates visits his mentor in Omaha. Zuckerberg likes smoking beef brisket and grilling pork ribs (from real cows and pigs) and says meats taste ‘doubly better when you hunt an animal for yourself,’” he added.
