Billionaire investor Warren Buffett says a private gathering at an Arizona resort where Oprah likes to hang out was a great chance for the American billionaires who have pledged to give away at least half their wealth to meet each other, compare notes, eat and laugh.
The first annual gathering of people who have committed to the Giving Pledge met May 5,2011 at the Miraval Resort, a Tucson resort owned by one of the signers—Steve Case, a philanthropist and a co-founder of America Online, and his wife, Jean.
Buffett knew only about 12 of the 61 people at a dinner before the famously gregarious Berkshire Hathaway CEO worked the room and made 40 new friends.
“They all more than fulfilled my expectations,” Buffett told The Associated Press on Friday in a telephone interview.
The media was banned from the first annual meeting of the group that has accepted the giving challenge by Buffett and his friend Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. So were extended family, advisers, secretaries and the CEOs of the foundations represented by the billionaires at the Miraval Resort in Tucson.
While they may have been closed-mouth to the outside world, they were quite chatty with each other and used the occasion to learn about their individual philanthropic pursuits. AP reports that Melinda Gates, who co-chairs the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation with her husband, “was delighted by the openness of the virtual strangers.” George Kaiser, a Tulsa, Okla., philanthropist.
Since last June, 69 individuals or couples have made the giving pledge…the curiosity of many on the outside is whether the real goal is to fund Eugenics !!!!
The reasons some conclude this is that if you look over the donations of these billionaires like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet , George Kaiser and others you see a common thread of supporting pro-abortion , population control organizations !
According to Philanthropy News Digest, in 2009, the George Kaiser Family Foundation Awarded $6.6 Million to Tulsa Nonprofits
A total of $2.6 million was awarded to health organizations, including the Mental Health Association, which received $270,000, and Eastern Oklahoma Donated Dental Services, which received $90,000, while grants totaling $2.3 million were awarded to organizations that provide human services, including the Parent Child Center, which received $100,000, and LIFE Senior Services, which received $65,000. Additional grants will support education and youth development programs, enable low-income homeowners to make repairs, and provide Medicare prescription assistance to the needy.
Matching grants were awarded to thirty-four organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma, the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, Planned Parenthood of Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma, and Oklahomans for Equality. Planned Parenthood appears to be a common recipient of these billionaires as the organization sets up shop inside minority communities and offers them abortions.
Access Philanthropy says that the [Warren] Buffett Foundation gave more than 100 Planned Parenthood affiliates grants ranging from $5,000 to $500,000 during the last three years.
Here is a list of just a few:
$ 267,357 to Planned Parenthood Association of Southwest and Central Florida , Sarasota , FL
$ 250,000 to Planned Parenthood of Alaska , Anchorage , AK
$ 75,000 to Planned Parenthood of Minnesota and South Dakota , Saint Paul , MN
$ 352,000 to Planned Parenthood of San Diego & Riverside , San Diego , CA
$ 28,000 to Planned Parenthood of Shasta-Diablo , Concord , CA
$ 700,000 to Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice , Washington , DC
Did you know that Warren Buffett has given $3 billion — yes, three billion dollars — to promote abortion here in the U.S. and around the world? Often, government officials in developing countries are under pressure to control population in order to qualify for international aid. So they pressure women in the villages to get abortions. Western Europe is especially strong in pushing for abortion in these developing countries.
The Times article quotes Buffett’s late wife telling interviewer Charlie Rose, “Warren feels that women all over the world get shortchanged. That’s why he’s so pro-choice.”
Buffett, plans to commit 10 million class B shares of his company, Berkshire Hathaway, to the Gates Foundation. That foundation also supports abortion and Planned Parenthood.

Fortune Magazine recently detailed the first complete public disclosure on what went down in this historic meeting of monies. In what could be potentially the biggest fundraising drive in history, Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates are hoping to inspire other billionaires to pledge at least 50 percent of their net worth to charity during their lifetimes or at death.
In 2006, Buffett endowed the Gates Foundation with 10 million Berkshire Class B shares, valued at approximately $37 billion dollars. Buffett’s 2010 donation constitutes part of the annual installment plan of 5 percent of pledged stocks to the foundation’s trust fund. The stock gives the Gates Foundation a steady source of income (the pay-out target over the coming decade is $3 billion a year) from which it can fund various other charities – which have included population control groups such as Planned Parenthood and others.
Just last month, the Gates Foundation announced they would be investing $1.5 billion in the cause of “maternal health” over the next 5 years – with a special emphasis on spreading “family planning” in the third world. (Code for pro-abortion eugenics)
Bloomberg reports that other abortion advocacy groups also received tens of millions for their work promoting abortion at home and abroad through the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, a charity Buffet set up in honor of his first wife, who died in 2005. That foundation distributed more than $2 million to the Abortion Access Project Inc., over $2 million to Catholics for Choice, a group dedicated to undermining the Catholic Church’s teaching on the sanctity of life, and more than $40 million to Ipas, a group that promotes the expansion of legal abortion in Latin and Central America, and in third world countries.
In September of 2010, The liberal group Human Rights Watch, which advocates for “gay rights” causes but also actively promotes abortion, will soon be a recipient of $100 million from left-wing activist George Soros. The billionaire announced he is donating the money so HRW can expand its efforts globally.
The donation is the largest political one Soros has made and it is the largest donation HRW has ever received.

Read the Transcript: Bill Moyers Interviews Bill Gates / Admits dad worked for Planned Parenthood
GATES: When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating. At the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing. And almost treating us like adults, talking about that.
My mom was on the United Way group that decides how to allocate the money and looks at all the different charities and makes the very hard decisions about where that pool of funds is going to go. So I always knew there was something about really educating people and giving them choices in terms of family size.
