Jeff Bezos Tied In With The Deep State
Last week, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos shocked the financial world when he purchased Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. You didn’t have to think in too critical of fashion to see that numerous potential repercussions now exists. For one, this could mean the end of mom and pop grocery stores. Or the end of major grocery chains. It could be one massive monopoly in the making (or made). There are arguments existing on both sides (some say Amazon props up smaller chains via a more convenient, less costly supply chain). But one thing is for sure; the major acquisition means something. We just might not all agree on what it means.
But could Amazon be intertwined with the deep state? That might be a terrifying question we all need to ask ourselves. And it isn’t as absurd as it may sound.
In 2013, Jeff Bezos purchased the Washington Post. The Washington Post hasn’t attempted to hide its disdain for President Trump in any fashion. In fact, it has been a liberal mouthpiece for years. The Trump victory has only driven it even deeper into its biased.
But what’s more? Well, a lot, actually.
Amazon was long known to be one of the “largest, most unprofitable company in history.” Amazon wasn’t even a profitable company (officially) until 2013. For many people, that’s a shocking statement, but its true. Bezos, of course, was getting richer by the minute taking a salary, but the company really wasn’t making money. Bezos claimed all the while he was in it for the long term. The company wasn’t a profit machine.
But it became one. And that happened in 2013.
In 2013, the CIA awarded Amazon and Bezos a $600 million cloud computer contract. Later that year, the Washington Post deal went down for $250 million. Bezos used just under half of his revenue from the CIA contract to buy a liberal stronghold media giant.
The Washington Post loves to cite “unnamed sources.” This day and age, or what we might term “post-Trump,” has become a time that embraces the “unnamed sources.” What used to revolve around media integrity, now turned into an opportunity to spin tales. Many of these “unnamed sources” for the Washington Post come from stories regarding insider information via the CIA.
The CIA. Jeff Bezos. The Washington Post. They are all truly one entity at this juncture.
John Brennan, the acting CIA Director, appointed by President Obama was outspoken regarding President Trump’s campaign and potential Russian ties. He even went so far as to testify before Congress regarding this.
“I saw interaction that in my mind raised questions of whether it was collusion,” Brennan told Rep. Trey Gowdy, saying that he supported the FBI digging further. “It was necessary to pull threads.”
Brennan is a former communist. In 1976, he voted for Communist Party USA candidate Gus Hall in the presidential election; he later said that he viewed it as a way “of signaling my unhappiness with the system, and the need for change.” (source)
Brennan, a former communist party vote caster, and Obama loyalist, is the one who started the FBI probe into the Trump administration. Being the Director of the CIA and clearly tied to Bezos, the owner of the Washington Post, should be viewed as more than just slightly opportunistic. It’s incredibly advantageous.
The Washington Post has been relentlessly pursuing Trump and Russia. They even remain locked in following Comey’s testimony which clearly detached Trump from any Russian involvement.
So now Jeff Bezos controls both the mouthpiece of the Deep State and the Deep State’s Intelligence wing. And now he’s going to essentially control the market on purchasing goods.
Further troubling? President Trump has made it known that he finds Bezo’s relationships with our government “troubling.”
“Every hour we’re getting calls from reporters from The Washington Post asking ridiculous questions. This is owned as a toy by Jeff Bezos who controls Amazon. Amazon is getting away with murder tax wise. He’s using the Washington Post for power so that the politicians in Washington don’t tax Amazon the way they should be taxed. He’s worried about me, he thinks I would go after him for anti-trust. He’s got a huge anti-trust problem because he’s controlling so much. Amazon is controlling so much of what they’re doing.”
In a few years, almost everything you purchase will go through Amazon in one way or another. Your groceries, your technology, your skin care, you name it. They can prop up a pharma company, or a GMO product, or they can knock it down. They can create sales funnels and determine who and what succeeds.

You can see on Bezos face from the other day that he can hardly stomach being in the same room with Trump.

Trump has said little regarding Bezos and Amazon since taking the control over the Oval Office. That either means Trump has been pushed away, or he’s felt maladjusted in light of all the deep state’s activity against him. We may never know the truth.
Now Bezos has the power to continue his Trump attacks (Washington Post, CIA influence, etc). And he has the incentive. The motive. The resources. Etc. Knowing the deep state would love to have President Trump removed, one has to wonder if Bezos could play a serious role in such ambition. It seems clear he can and does.
Amazon is also considered a horrendous place to work. And seeing they are growing at an astounding rate, there will be more and more jobs produced from Amazon (until he can knock them out with robots, that is).
“Personally I have not met any Amazonian with any other extra curricular activity other than work,” one anonymous former employee writes.
“The thing is most people, upon getting the offer, would think they’d stay long enough to reap the rewards and end up leaving earlier than they’d planned,” Reddit user examazonsde writes.
“One aspect of Amazon culture that turns many people off is the constant emphasis on frugality,” Eric Aderhold, a former software engineer, writes on Quora. “Amazon doesn’t tend to buy lunches for its employees, offer outstanding fully-paid health coverage, match charitable contributions, invest in top-of-the-line workstations for developers to use, or other expensive things that other top employers are known to do.”
“This focus on frugality has helped keep prices low, which in turn has allowed Amazon to grow to the impressive size it is today,” Aderhold continued. “The downside is that it’s hard for any company to hire and retain top employees when other companies are willing to offer a bunch of attractive fringe benefits in addition to being competitive salary-wise.”
Now Bezos will control the market for goods. He will control the facilitation of the Deep State’s messaging. What’s next?
