Jeff Bezos

1. Workers struck in Germany Spain and elsewhere over terrible working conditions. in Germany, Spain, etc. The Seattle Times published a column on Amazon US workers' need for a union

2. And yet. Jeff Bezos, owner of the Washington Post, Amazon, Whole Foods, a cattle ranch etc. is the richest man in the world with an accumulated wealth of 150 billion dollars.

3. There is racial bias in Amazon photo recognition software which identified black and Latino congresspersons as criminals. Is that the CIA facial recognition software?

4. Bezos maintains the CIA cloud for 600 million.

5. Bezos has promoted several illegal immoral US government wars.

6. Bezos and the Washington Post for decades have been a conduit for CIA disinformation.
7a. Amazon and the Washington Post are major deforesters, destroying trees for cardboard packaging and newsprint. Deforestation is the prime cause of global heating and rising seas. 140 degrees in parts of Africa, 106 degrees in Japan, Toronto residents hospitalized for heat, fires in 13 states in 2018 are some effects of deforestation.

7b. Amazon is selling axed 7 ft high Christmas trees starting this year.

8. As a cattle rancher, Bezos has profiteered from animal agony, mammal flesh related diseases, energy waste, and the deforestation caused by slaughterhouse murder bound mammals who pull up sapling trees in their grazing.

9. Whole Foods ads shill for mammal, bird and fish flesh. Foods derived from animal slaughter cause animal agony, human disease, energy waste, and environmental destruction.

10. The Nation magazine and others have reported that USPS postal workers must shoulder the burden of Amazon, which many charge does not pay its fair share at the USPS. Historically the USPS has allowed US citizens through first class mail to pay for the lower cost of bulk corporate mail.

11. Like henhawk Joni Ernst, intalled by the Koch Brothers as a senator from Iowa,
who bragged she could castrate pigs in Iowa and politicians in DC, Jeff Bezos
did not object to castrating helpless mammals.

12. With 290,000 acres at least, Jeff Bezos is among the top 25 landowners in the US. Another animal abuser is Ted Turner, 2nd in land holdings, who profiteers from the murder of bison.

The following 2 paragraphs are from Indybay:

'Beginning in 2014, Hsiung and DxE have undertaken multiple undercover investigations of Whole Foods suppliers, exposing what they call criminal animal cruelty at farms that include Diestel Turkey Ranch, Pitman Family Farms (Mary’s Free Range Chicken) and Petaluma Farms. The investigations have led to thousands of complaints against Whole Foods on social media and protests across the country against both Whole Foods and its parent company, Amazon.

Earlier this year Hsiung was arrested and charged with “threatening bodily injury” after asking questions at a Colorado Whole Foods about the conditions at the company’s meat suppliers; a video of the incident posted on Facebook was viewed over 3.4 million times (and shared by the musician Moby). Hsiung says the new suit is an effort to prevent exposure of disturbing animal abuse at Whole Foods farms. '


Currently the CIA is continuing destabilization of oil rich Venezuela, Nicaragua, Afghanistan.


In 1965 the New York Times published a short article of the life of Ho Chi Minh. Many who read it understood for the first time the betrayal of Ho by Woodrow Wilson, and by Eisenhower's failure to honor FDR's promise to Ho that should he help rid Vietnam of the Japanese, the US would support his lifetime battle to rid Vietnam of its French colonizers. On the other hand, the Washington Post was a prowar newspaper while millions of Vietnamese, Cambodians, Laotians and 58,000 American soldiers died and many times that were injured.
