Amazon's Future Past
Billionaire Disruptors are Nothing New
The universal shop for high-density living under Agenda 21, no car needed, quarantine friendly, your every purchase traced and recorded for posterity. It fits perfectly into the globalist dream, ticking every box: digital store credits replacing cash, with total surveillance by Amazon cloud ™.
There is more than meets the eye to Jeff Bezos. Despite the company’s backstory its origins are tied to the deep state, the Pentagon and The Investors, the world’s most resilient, interconnected and sustained family fortunes, centered upon banking and oil. It should not surprise that Amazon is the company at the heart of The Great Reset.
Edit, Sep 1, 2021 — I often sense pushback when criticizing individuals or naming families. I don’t do it for sport.
In practice the system is far too complex for Bezos, Gates, Musk, Thiel, Zuckerberg etc to have much personal influence. They represent institutions. Some families are connected or wealthy enough to constitute those institutions.
It is important to shout that from the rooftops: they are not caped libertarian crusaders — not by their actions, not by their position in the machine, regardless of whatever inclinations they may voice.
‘It’s their money and they can do as they like’ is sophomoric Reddit nonsense. It is not their money as a cursory investigation suggests (it’s The Investors money and, even more pointedly, our pensions, insurance funds and data but that’s another discussion).
1/ The most influential are allowed to accumulate billions. It is a small price for the veneer of authority and it makes them more useful.
2/ Very few get to influence the direction — maybe a politician like Xi or Putin in an autocratic system but largely…
3/ it is those who control the force or the money who call the shots.

Part One, Kindling
Fuel for the fire
Back in the 1990s when I worked for one of the news agencies, I bumped into one of those walking repositories of knowledge who slave away on a specialist desk that most people choose to avoid.
He researched commodities and he told me something was going on that would soon be very important. The big money, by which he meant the really big money, was buying up the food, minerals and energy sectors: everything from the supply chain to the land itself.
The newspapers were too full of the first Internet boom to pay attention. The stories were about the fashion retailer Boo or Lastminute dot com or Steve Case taking over Time Warner.
Then came the crash. It’s forgotten now because it was overshadowed a year later by 9/11. But so many of those Internet darlings with “first mover advantage” suddenly tanked. The 95 Per Cent Club was born, for those who retained five per cent of their peak value.
Harvard Business School has since worn out keyboards explaining how Amazon was unscathed by the carnage that slayed most of the first-wave Internet retailers.
Amazon’s secret, supposedly, was charging customers before it paid suppliers. How Harvard attributes this insight to Jeff Bezos is a mystery as it would seem to be widespread practice. Why the ex post facto rationalization?
Perhaps this snippet of backstory seems needed because of Amazon’s later monumental stature. But also because the Dot Com crash was one of those increasingly frequent, scripted events in which the people are led by the nose into a pumped up stock market before the music stops, the chairs are kicked away and those at the table next to the croupier rake in the winnings.
If you doubt, go back and read how Goldman Sachs would hike the price of an initial public offerings (IPO) at the last minute, gouging the public to the max, even though the insiders already stood to make a killing because they had received a preferential discounted price. What Goldman did in 2000 was the same as it had done in 1929 and would do again in 2008 and is likely to do in 2021 or 2022. The economist J.K. Galbraith described Goldman Sachs’ market manipulation in his book The Great Crash and it is simply stunning to watch the firm use the same techniques over and over.
Doing ‘God’s work’
I was taking a guest from the television studio down to the lobby and I asked, in the lift, what would happen next. The banker said the Federal Reserve would cut interest rates to the bone and keep them there. That would create the next wave of asset price inflation before the next managed crash.
So it came to pass. And Goldman saw everything that it had made, and, behold, it was very good. In 2009, Lloyd Blankfein, Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs, would say that banks do "God's work."
Then came 2001 and the resource wars in which the commodity reporter's foresight was again confirmed as governments deployed one pretext after another to snag oil and gas fields in Iraq and later Libya and then in Syria.
If you abandon the authorized version of the business world as told by Reuters, The Financial Times and business schools, you would have noticed the opium market had also been seized in Afghanistan, while central Europe was awash in the trafficking of humans and organs. Hadn't slavery been abolished?
It is fashionable to talk of state corporatism and fascism, although the state has always been bent to the whim of oligarchs. That is why those oligarchs were so closely associated with the seizure of Russia by the Bolsheviks, Germany by its corporations and why nominally communist China has worked so closely with the banks, corporations and foreign families who date from the Opium Wars.
The intelligence agencies explain, as they finger the public purse, that the charge is to protect royals and heads of state but they are always busy in those very same regions helping corporations lay their hands on minerals, resources, and scientific and technical know-how. Perhaps there is a good reason for U.S. troops to occupy Germany and Japan to this day.
What we are witnessing is the stripping away of the weft and warp that makes up the cloth of human existence.
Economics derives from the Greek words for homestead and distribution; which in turn is simple argot for the entire scope of existence, from the shepherd on the hillside to the maker of musical instruments to the writer of songs who performs in the taverna as the sun sets on another day.
It beats with the rhythm of life from the calving to the shearing to the butchering. It is why the dairymaid and the baker rise before dawn and why the fire watcher stays up all night to tend the smudge pots and keep the frost from the vines.
It determines the steepness of the lanes that reach the cottage, the terracing of the valley walls and the shape of the boats that ply the river below.
The reduction of economics to mathematics and computer modeling is denuding life of its richness and meaning. The result is that everything is bent to one outcome. The corporations finance think tanks to shape government policy and pay scientists for research that supports it.
It is hard to say which came first — the financialization of the economy or the formulaic ideology that provides its self-serving logic.
Together they have unleashed a vortex upon society and the jettison of all teaching and knowledge that cannot be reduced to a cipher, a bit or a digit.
Out has gone the humanities and the liberal philosophy that guided public life, along with the practice and learning of politicians, handed down the centuries, as to the limits to civilized behaviour.
Civilization is reduced to power relations, in total ignorance of that which perpetuates the fine mesh and texture of life, the essential filters and valves that allow people to exist at all levels of power and wealth — and which stops the big rocks from displacing or crushing the small.
These are not just the brakes on the capitalist vehicle. They are the cultural continuity that stretches from the coastal city states of classical antiquity. They give rise not only to arts and culture but also to everything that sustains life beyond mere existence.
It was not financialization that brought civilization. It was invention in order to meet need: the windmill grinding corn or the practice of crop rotation and husbandry that created a surplus of food that allowed the expansion of cities; the aquaduct and sanitation that kept disease at bay and cultivated a labour force big enough for industrialization. The waterwheel evolved with the heating of steam and gave way to the piston, and the belts and pulleys that mechanized factories.
In its place we have winner takes all. And the academy and humanities have been co-opted to rationalize this zero sum game.
The mighty digit is how wealth crosses sectors. It is how celebrity CEOs hop from one industry to another, promising to apply their wizardry to skills and products of which they are ignorant. The ideological reduction to nothing but power is the perfect foil for an economy that recognizes only shareholder value.
Changing the euphemism from shareholder to stakeholder means nothing, unless it changes power relations. This is the one time when the postmodernist obsession with power might tell us something. And the academics are silent.
It is no coincidence that the hydrocarbon wealth of the bankers and Rockefellers drove the financialization of society. The combustion engine established a free-wheeling dominance that transformed the entire economy through the magic of distribution, making possible everything that followed: warehousing, logistics, the bringing food from distant farms for processing at factories, with refrigerated transport and seasonal storage allowing arbitrage in space and time — and to give the gangster his due, don’t forget extortion, protection rackets and the denial of service.
This wealth found its way into seemingly unrelated industries and professions: plastics were born and petrochemical pharmaceuticals. Soon the combination of free-flowing finance and chemical drugs replaced natural remedies and preventative care.
There was nothing organic or progressive about this trashing of old by new. Rockefeller bought up the medical schools and closed down traditional teaching.
Money that flowed into universities was neither neutral nor free of taint. Like all endowments it came with conditions and strings. The teaching of history was captured, new professors trained and soon the encyclopedias were rewritten. The Carnegie Endowment's financing of Waldo Leland and the American Historical Association is the most notorious example of this, leading to the deliberate recasting of history with political and corporate interests in mind.
So we find in the third decade of the 21st century that the liberal arts have been rid of anything to call humane, where the sculpted nuance of the humanities, worn by the feet and touch of time, is toppled and replaced by an everchanging hologram.
The universities went corporatist — what else do you call the consideration only of power, when you know where it reside? Academics may blame white males or dress power in racial garb or change its gender. That can only ever be a euphemism or ‘straw person’ for the genuine seat of power which accumulates in the merger of state and corporation, the melding of surveillance capitalism with law and order, and the restriction of economic freedom in the name of social equity or credit.
Part Two The Protagonist
The calf must be kept calm and the procedure brisk. With its head in a chute, Jeff held the calf’s tail over its back. He watched the expert hands go to work. If done neatly, it is no worse than a circumcision.
The scrotum is slit across the end so that the testes fall out. Then they are quickly severed. In larger calves it can be done mechanically with a tool called an emasculator.
Young Jeffrey idolized his grandfather, learning to herd cattle on grandpa’s 25,000 acres of ranch in Cotulla, Texas.
Soon Jeff was ready to try it himself and before long he was by repute a mean hand at castrating young bulls. You might say that was good practice for his future neutering of Main Street.
How did a humble bookseller achieve such towering stature to rank alongside J.D. Rockefeller? He never made money from books and, until recently, he sold most of his goods at a loss.
There is another bit of information you should consider in the creation of this digital behemoth. You see, Jeff Bezos is not his real name and there may be a reason why he may have obscured his history.
The man Bezos calls his dad, Mike Bezos, is not his biological father.
"My dad came here from Cuba all by himself without speaking English when he was 16 years old, and has been kicking ass ever since. Thank you for all the love and heart, Dad!" — Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) Jun 17, 2018 
Jeff Bezos’s biological father, Ted Jorgensen, was located in Glendale, Arizona. Could Jeffrey Preston Jorgenson-Gise have any connections? For that is his full name and parents. Like president Barack Obama, Bezos had a teenage mother, and lost contact with his biological father. In both cases, their mother was the connection to the Deep State. Both had a maternal grandfather linked to state security. In Barry’s case CIA (mother and grandfather) — in Jeffrey’s case, DARPA and its laboratories.
“Despite being a teen mother, it’s not like Jackie Bezos [née Gise] grew up in a trailer park or anything. Her father was a high level official with the Atomic Energy Commission who supervised the Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore laboratories. Her father was major influence on Jeff growing up, with his wide-ranging knowledge of science.” 
Jeff’s grandfather, Lawrence Preston Gise (1915-1995), known as Preston after whom Jeff is named, was appointed by Congress to be western regional director of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). Operating out of headquarters in Albuquerque, he supervised the region’s 26,000 employees at the national laboratories, which also included Sandia, along with Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore.
Before joining AEC, Gise (rhymes with dice) had worked for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the research and development arm of the Department of Defense that was created in 1958 and the arm which created the Internet. Bezos was one of the first shareholders in Google, when he invested $250,000 in 1998.
Intended to be a creative counterbalance to conventional military thinking in research and development, DARPA was formed, according to its official mission statement, to assure that the United States maintains a lead in applying state-of-the-art technology for military capabilities and to prevent technological surprise from her adversaries.
That defence research includes deadly viruses and vaccines. According to the researcher Whitney Webb DARPA has been directly involved in developing DNA and RNA vaccines such as the ones being rolled out in Event Covid. It has also developed implantable devices to monitor or modify the body, enhance soldiers and surveil the population. DARPA’s specialists move seamlessly between supposedly private companies like Google-Alphabet which, in turn, channel DARPA research to commercial companies.
Not only does DARPA launch commercial enterprises, it then uses them as vehicles to achieve defence and surveillance objectives.
Microsoft was launched by IBM using the ‘nerd’ Bill Gates, who was actually a representative of a family connected to the Federal Reserve private central bank. Did the ‘bookish nerd’ Jeff Bezos play a similar role?
He is from a DARPA family, invested in Google before most people had heard of it and his company Amazon was only viable because of military-intelligence contracts along with special concessions from the government.
Its fastest-growing business is Amazon Web Services which provides cloud computing. It accounts for 59% of the corporation’s operating income for all segments. That compares with North American retail at 39% and international retail on about 3%. 
AWS controls about one third of the global cloud market, twice as much as its closest competitor. Those, not surprisingly, are Microsoft, IBM, Google and Alibaba.
So DARPA, or closely-related companies, runs the cloud. That gives it an overview into smart cities. Due to its dominance in cloud, Amazon is one of the biggest vendors to transportation, energy, manufacturing and healthcare. And in each case, there is data to harvest and crunch.
From energy meters, Internet of Things devices in people’s homes and to every step of public transport, at the airport, checking-in, navigate checkpoints, guiding marshals and staff, routing your credit card as you purchase meals, and getting you to the gates.
Impressive. But also amazing to think we did all of this before the Internet.
Part Three The Deed
The Great Reset
Bezos built the ultimate, universal shop for high-density living as planned under Agenda 21: smart cities in which there is no provision for cars — you won’t have one, electric, horse-drawn or whatever. Amazon is quarantine and lockdown-friendly, your every purchase traced and recorded for posterity. It fits perfectly into the globalist dream, ticking every box: digital store credits replacing cash, with total surveillance over the Amazon cloud.
Ignore the cardboard — Amazon shipped 2 billion packages in 2019 in the U.S. alone. That mountain of packaging must be an inside joke on the forest. Maybe it’s the same kind of quirky humour that led founders of the World Wildlife Fund to shoot tigers. 
Helped by government diktat that shut down main street and confined people to their homes, it’s become an e-commerce version of the Soviet universalniy magazin. It is already unchallengeable. If the rulers wish, it will become the only way to shop.
Amazon was ready for this role long before The Great Reset was announced by The Prince of Wales in June 2020.
It was so well prepared that Amazon's CEO was able to retire from day-to-day management in July 2021 and hand over the emasculator — sorry, the reins.
The Great Reset offers a vision of a future in which we cast aside everything, even possessions, in return for the rationalization of our world, in which everything we know will be redundant.
Fiction is what you are mostly told about this future: flying cars, electric everything, groceries by drone, holidays in space. The stories come so thick and fast that we don't have time for awkward questions. Nor do the newspapers and press bother.
Incompatible narratives exist side by side: ban nuclear energy, or maybe not; scrap petrol and diesel cars, but for the military maybe not; switch to electricity, while everyone charges their car, and it’s all coming from windmills and solar.
Except we can do barely 10 per cent of this. What gives? You do. The people. Reduction in humans is the only way the numbers add up.
See my article: Renewable Energy & The Great Reset: Handmaidens to the Cull. 
Amazon Exxon Chevron
Rockefeller did not get rich by drilling oil. It was his rivals he drilled — sometimes into the ground. Oil is not rare, or certainly wasn’t then. He had to make it so.
Nor is e-commerce unique in any way. An intriguing parallel.
J.D. Rockefeller got rich by manipulating the railroads that delivered the oil and he didn't even have to own them. It’s a tactic he learned from Alphonse Rothschild of the French branch of the banking family who provided logistics in the Caspian to the Nobels, brothers of the famous Alfred, after the Russian Tsar Alexander II opened the Russian oilfields to international companies in the 1870s. (See my Afghan series).
In the same way, the dominant online retailer Amazon plays one delivery company against another, demanding discounts of up to 70 per cent. To offset their losses on Amazon, FedEx and UPS punish smaller retailers and hike their rates. Having got what it wanted, Amazon is now poised to abandon FedEx and UPS and is buying its own fleet of aircraft. Update, Sep 2021: Amazon now has 73 aircraft in its fleet — smaller Boeing 737s and 767 and makes 163 daily flights serving 70 per cent of the U.S. population.
By using the same techniques of predatory pricing, Amazon has undercut rivals and gradually extended control of the distribution network until it had impregnable control of the supply chain. The excellent video linked below shows how he tightened his stranglehold. 
Crushing competitors was a common tactic among the barons back in the day who included Carnegie, Vanderbildt, Mellon and Baruch. Newsweek noticed the similarities in a 2012 article: During the second industrial revolution, 1870-1914, about 50 individuals became incredibly wealthy but leading to huge unemployment. 
Newsweek notes that ‘disruptive technology’ can be just a hubristic gloss of the same destructive tactics of the robber barons. What Newsweek dare not acknowledge is that the mass production made WW1 possible, if not inevitable. Nowadays instead of war, technology is leading to a dystopian surveillance state possibly accompanied by even greater depopulation.
Who is today's Rockefeller?
Does it matter? Wealth is incredibly concentrated at the top.
The Rockefeller history shows that you don’t have to directly own a company to make money. You need to control policy, public health, medicine, food, education and the way people live and work. That will direct money to your investments. 
Oil gave birth to petrochemicals, in turn to pharmaceuticals, allopathic medicine and the wealth to control the education of doctors, historians and now policymakers and ultimately society.
Financial analyst and former Washington administrator Catherine Austin Fitts argued in 2015 that Obamacare and Common Core were about standardizing a service so that it could be re-engineered into software and digital systems, eliminating the labour. “That will save several trillion dollars in labour costs but also destroy two remaining pillars of the middle class lifestyle.”
Now it’s happening. During Lockdown medicine and education have been the two most notable services to be offered virtually over smartphone.
Genetically-modified organisms (GMO) are about intellectual property and thus control of the food supply. If the monetary system is shifting from one based on oil and gas earnings (outputs) to energy consumed (inputs) it means the digital scrip will be a form of voucher. It is a short step to rationing food and people.
If you are rich, that doesn’t affect you. Money makes money. The rich don’t fall as the aristocrats did on a monarch’s whim. We've still got the Rockefellers, and Exxon and Chevron are in talks to re-combine. It is no coincidence that the time is ripe to restore Standard Oil as the oligarchs make their greatest-ever bid for power.
By switching to renewables and energy rationing, the owners of oil and gas — the British and Dutch royal families, along with families like the Rockefellers and Rothschilds — get to preserve their riches. Scarce minerals don’t lose value. They lock the gold in the ground. 
Part Four The Pyre
History stacked high
If Amazon fits so perfectly with The Great Reset and the objectives of the oil trillionaires, is there a deeper connection? Amazon could not have come into being without the deep state. Laws were set aside. The U.S. Post Office was drafted to help ship goods cheaply from China, undercutting manufacturers and retailers at home.
There is no Department of Commerce, Securities and Exchange Commission, or Competition Commission — effectively they’ve disappeared. Monopoly is the order of the day.
Oligarchical collectivism is happy with fascism, communism or any other kind of state corporatism. Oligarchical collectivism is happy with fascism, communism or any other kind of state corporatism. History is stacked high like books ready for burning:
recreating IG Farben (around Bayer-Monsanto) a Rockefeller partner
military-linked contractors (Amazon) control payment and distribution
green energy quotas assigned by state/social credit
food patents and rationing at heart of new ‘voucher money’
individuals subordinated to communitarianism and ‘keeping everybody safe’
Kerosene was the origin of the Rockefeller fortune. It was while looking for kerosene to sell as medicine that William Avery Rockefeller struck oil. His son J.D. built the business and his grandson David, the World Trade Center.
When it came time to replace the WTC we are told it was consumed in a fire of kerosene.
Nano-Thermite was developed at Lawrence Livermore that once was overseen by Jeffrey’s grandfather.
It’s a small world and it’s about to get smaller.

 Rockefeller Medicine Men: Medicine and Capitalism in America by E. Richard Brown (1981)
“By 1920 Exxon, BP and Royal Dutch/Shell dominated the world’s booming oil business, with the Rockefeller, Rothschild, Samuel, Nobel and Oppenheimer families, along with British and Dutch royals owning the brunt of their stock. Two other Rockefeller babies, Mobil and Chevron, weren’t far behind the Big Three. The Texas Murchison family – themselves patronized by the Rockefellers – controlled Texaco, while the Mellon family – with its own ties to the Rockefeller fortune – controlled Seventh Sister Gulf Oil.”
