The state attorney general in North Dakota is stepping in after globalist billionaire Bill Gates just purchased a massive amount of farmland in America.
Gates is now the single largest private owner of farmland in the United States.
He recently purchased 242,000 acres using his trust, which amounts to six parcels of land in Pembina County.
Attorney General Drew Wrigley confirms his investigation will find out how Gates intends to use or hoard the land in North Dakota.
Laws in North Dakota set certain limitations on trusts and also restricts the ownership and leasing of farmland to corporations and limited liability companies. It’s possible that Gates won’t be able to move forward with his plans depending on the findings of AG Wrigley’s investigation.
For example, in the event that Gates’ trust is unable to demonstrate its use of the land in accordance with state law, he could face massive fines of $100,000 until the trust divests from the land within one year.

Gates is accused of pushing very controversial ideas on Americans, which authorities in North Dakota may not like.
He has publicly said that the U.S. should replace real meat with a synthetic laboratory-made meat to help fight climate change.
“You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time,” Gates said.
If Bill Gates offered me his entire fortune, I would not agree to this. No amount of money would be worth going a lifetime without actual red meat. https://t.co/ozudoyAlA1

More on this story via Western Journal:
Gates’ position as the single largest owner of American farmland puts him in a unique position to potentially harm ranchers and cattlemen.
The billionaire could prevent ranchers from grazing their cows on his extensive property, cutting them off from land they’ve used for decades.
This would significantly increase supply pressures on ranchers, and ultimately raise the price of beef at the supermarkets.
The hoarding of farmland also stands to impact the entire American food chain in an era where price pressures make it costlier than ever for Americans to feed their families.
Gates’ trust has 30 days from the receipt of the letter to demonstrate how it’s legally using the land.
The globalist oligarch was also reportedly seen within the halls of the United States Capitol earlier this month.
