Buy your food from the CIA: Amazon buys Whole Foods

June 19, 2017

When Amazon boss and billionaire Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post in 2013, he also had an ongoing $600 million contract to provide cloud computing services to the CIA. That meant that the Washington Post, which already had a long history of cooperation with the CIA, renewed their wedding vows with the Agency and doubled down on the alliance.

By any reasonable standard of journalism, the Post should preface every article about the CIA, with a conflict of interest admission: TAKE THIS PIECE WITH A FEW GIANT GRAINS OF SALT, BECAUSE OUR NEWSPAPER IS OWNED BY A MAN WHO HAS A HUGE CONTRACT TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO THE CIA.

Now Bezos and his company, Amazon, have bought Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. Whole Foods is the premier retailer of “natural” foods in America.

The degree of profiling of Whole Foods customers will increase by a major factor. Amazon/CIA will be able to deploy far more sophisticated algorithms in that regard.

It’s no secret that many Whole Foods customers show disdain for government policies on agribusiness, health, medicine, and the environment. Well, that demographic is of great interest to the Deep State, for obvious reasons. And the Deep State will now be able to analyze these customers in finer detail.

At the same time, the Amazon retail powerhouse will exercise considerable control over the food supply, since it will be selling huge numbers of food products to the public. Amazon will have new relationships with all the farmers Whole Foods has been using for suppliers.

Perhaps this disclaimer posted on every Whole Foods item is now in order: KEEP IN MIND THE FACT THAT THE OWNER OF WHOLE FOODS, AMAZON, HAS A VERY TIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CIA. USE YOUR IMAGINATION.

Then there is this. The CIA has its own private company, In-Q-Tel, which was founded in 1999 to pour investment money into tech outfits that could develop new ways to facilitate “data collection,” and service other CIA needs. In-Q-Tel, Jeff Bezos, and Amazon are connected. For example, here is a 2012 article from technologyreview.com:

“Inside a blocky building in a Vancouver suberb,  across the street from a dowdy McDonald’s, is a place chilled colder than anywhere in the known universe. Inside that is a computer processor that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and the CIA’s investment arm, In-Q-Tel believe can tap the quirks of quantum mechanics to unleash more computing power than any conventional computer chip. Bezos and In-Q-Tel are in a group of investors who are betting $30 million on this project…”

Nextgov.com described the deal this way: “Canadian company D-Wave Systems raised $30 million to develop quantum computing systems. Bezos Expeditions, the personal investment company of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and CIA venture capital arm In-Q-Tel participated in the latest funding round, the firm announced. The company’s quantum computing technology seeks to speed up data-crunching. If successful, the technology could aid automated intelligence gathering and analysis.”

Yes, automated intelligence gathering and analysis are exactly what outfits like Amazon and the CIA need for profiling the public. Other companies who have purchased products from D-Wave Systems? Goldman Sachs and Lockheed Martin. Let’s see: Amazon, CIA, Goldman, Lockheed–a formidable collection of Deep State players.

“Buy your food from the purest natural retailer in the world, the CIA. Oops, I mean Amazon. Oops, I mean Whole Foods.”

The Elite Meet Today To Decide Our Future

by Al Benson Jr.

The annual meeting of the Bilderbergers for 2017 is being held this year in Chantilly, Virginia from June 1-4. The preliminaries are probably in progress as I write this. There was a time when the Establishment was able to keep these meetings almost totally secret and you couldn’t find out where they were bring held nor who was attending, and those few who did try to find out were hustled off the premises as though they had broken the cardinal law of Elitist Secrecy.

After awhile, though, that ceased to work real well, as some folks in the alternative media always seemed to manage to get in or at least get a list of the attendees and they passed that information out far and wide. And there is nothing wrong with that. When you have semi-secret groups of high mucky mucks meeting to plan the future of the world I think it’s a good thing for the public to be aware of that. The Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Group are the three premier groups in this country that are trying to shuffle us all off into some sort of One World Government–and the more vehemently they deny that the more you’d better believe that some sort of World Government is their real agenda.

However, in their almost infinite wisdom, they have finally come to realize they can’t keep it all totally secret from us, the common herd, and so now they publish a list of attendees at their socialist soirees and hope we don’t recognize too many of the names. However, their discussions about our future remain secret even if the people doing the discussing don’t. For anyone interested in finding out who is attending these bashes you can go to http://www.BilderbergMeetings.org on the Internet and get a list of the Elite that plan how they think the rest of us should live in 2017. There is even a Face Book page out there called Bilderberg 2017 exposed. So all is not secret that they wish to be secret.

It is revealing to look at some of the names of those who will be in Chantilly for this confab. Some names jump out at you, like John O. Brennan, the Muslim convert who was the head of Obama’s CIA. Then there is Lindsey Graham, current U.S. Senator. I imagine there are some folks in his home state that would love to know what he is doing at a Bilderberg meeting. And Henry Kissinger is always at these things as one of the prime movers and shakers promoting One World Government. Then there is Terry McAuliffe, the Governor of Virginia. And H. R. McMaster, Mr. Trump’s National Security Adviser, and Peggy Noonan, author and columnist for the Wall Street Journal. Also attending is Wilbur Ross Jr., Mr. Trump’s Secretary of Commerce, as well as Nadia Schadlow, Deputy Assistant to the President, National Security Council, and Peter Thiel, who has been involved with the Trump administration. There is even a You Tube video out there called Will Donald Trump be at the 2017 Bilderberg?  I most assuredly hope he won’t, but it seems that several people in his administration will be. Not good news! These people represent a worldview that is supposedly anathema to that of Mr. Trump, and if that is really the case, then Mr. Trump has a bigger problem than even he realizes. Some in his administration are definitely advocates of One World Government in some form and if he is ever to accomplish what he says he wants to do he is going to have to find some way to remove those people and replace them with people that share his vision. His administration has been infiltrated by advocates of One World Government–and he needs to be aware of that if he isn’t.

Some of the topics that will be under discussion this year will be: The Trump Administration–a progress report; Can Globalisation be slowed down?; The War on Information (I bet that will be a dandy); and Why is Populism growing? Then there will be a discussion on Current Events, which I assume may be some kind of catch-all for everything they failed to cover with the other topics.

Many of those attending this conference display the fact that the Trump administration has lots of “swamp draining” to do if ever they plan on making lasting changes beneficial to the American people, because he has lots of people in his White House right now who have a vested interest in preserving the status quo and not changing anything that will help anyone but them and their leftist friends.

False Prophets in the White House?

by Al Benson Jr.

Way back in ancient times kings had prophets who were supposed to be able to predict the future for them, especially during wars, so that the king should know what he should or should not do. Lots (not all) of these prophets were plain out and out fakes who told the king what they thought he would like to hear. Some of them predicted future events in such a way that you could take their predictions two or three different ways, so that if the king didn’t get what he wanted the prophet could say “when I said such and such I meant it this way, not the way you took it.” Depending on the king, and the mood he was in that day, such an explanation might save your head. At other times–well–nobody lives forever anyway.

However, in the new Trump administration it would almost seem that we have a breed of prophet that doesn’t tell the president what he needs to hear. Rather he, or they, decide what they want the president to hear and that’s what he gets in the briefings these “prophets” give him. I would suggest that, if the president wants to get the real story about what is going on that he sit up by himself, late at night, and check out InfoWars.com, the Drudge Report and some of these other alt.right websites and blogs. You can bet the farm he’s not getting this kind of information from his “advisors”–today’s “prophets.”

And along these lines, I really wonder who has been “advising” Mr. Trump on who he should pick for cabinet positions and other important posts. It seems that many of the people he has picked for important positions are not about to help him “drain the swamp”–instead they are working to drown him in it.

Some of the information I am going to deal with below I have gotten from several different sites, among which are: http://www.thenewamerican.com     http://www.AmericanFreePress.net  http://www.cfr.org    http://www.rumormillnews.com     http://www.Bodybuilding.comForums  None of this is original with me. All I am doing is passing along what I have collected (part of it anyway) and I would encourage people to check these and other sites out on their own. Don’t just take my word for it.

One article I checked out, listed above, had a headline: Trump’s Globalist Swamp. a partial list and then it went on to name several names. All those mentioned in this article are not on this one list but are taken from all the articles I researched. So here are some of the globalist and One World Government stars and personalities. All these people are or have been in the Trump administration, no doubt due to some of Trump’s “advisors.”

Nadia Schadlow–deputy assistant to the president for national security strategy–Member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

Dina Powell Habib–President Trump’s senior counselor for economic initiatives/deputy national security advisor for strategy–Member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

Jon Huntsman–(Trump’s U.S. Ambassador to Russia)–Trilateral Commission Member (listed on page 10 of 2017 membership list).

Peter Thiel–Trump’s transition team–Bilderberg Group Steering Committee Member

James Mattis–Bilderberg Attendee 2015–“General Mattis is an odd pick for President Trump’s new secretary of defense…Mattis has a long history of promoting globalism and perpetual war. Could Mattis be the globalists’ Trojan Horse, who will ensure the internationalists’ gravy train doesn’t end?”

Elaine Chao–Transportation Secretary–Member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

Lt. General H. R. McMaster–National Security Advisor–Member Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

Stephen Allen Schwarzman–Chairman of the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum–Member of the Order of Skull and Bones.

Rex Tillerson–Secretary of State–CEO of Exxon Mobil Corporation (2006-2016), which is a corporate member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

Neil M. Gorsuch–Supreme Court Justice–Five year “term member” of the Council on Foreign Relations, 2004-2008.

Stephen T. Mnuchin–Treasury Secretary–Member of the Order of Skull and Bones

Robert E. LIghthizer–U.S. Trade Representative–Member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

I don’t pretend to know who advised Mr. Trump to pick all these people for these important positions, but whoever did just about insured that Mr. Trump would never drain the swamp, rather the swamp would inundate him and his America-First agenda, and I suspect that was the real reason these people were chosen–to ensure that “business as usual” would continue in the swamp no matter what Donald Trump said or did.

So that is where we seem to be at this point unless something changes. Not exactly what the American people voted for is it?

And even with all this globalist “insurance” these people are still trying to remove Trump from office. Their latest ploy is that Trump probably has alzheimers disease and therefore is not fit to govern. Watch to see if stories about this start to appear in the prostitute press in days to come.

“Earth Day” is Really “Birthday”–Lenin’s That is

by Al Benson Jr.

Way back in 1970 the “Environmentalist Movement” so called, was launched upon an unsuspecting public in the form of Earth Day, on April 22nd of that year. There was so many “environmental” events  pushed at that time that I can’t remember them all. The vast majority of them came from the political and religious Left and were, if you take a close look at them, designed to control people’s lives to a large extent.

An almost totally overlooked fact about April 22, 1970 was that it just happened to be the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lenin, the first butcher of the Soviet Union. Now what made the promoters of “Earth Day” choose this particular date for their yearly observances? Coincidence? Slightly possible, but hardly likely. Movements that originate on the Left are very conscious of the symbolism of certain dates and one of the mind games they play on the rest of us is that they get us to celebrate those dates they deem important but they give them different names so we celebrate their important date without realizing it. Hence the title of this article.

Many astute commentators have recognized the true origins of the environmentalist movement. Years ago one of them noted that the environmentalist movement had picked up the nickname of “the watermelon gang” and that was because they “were green on the outside and RED on the inside.” I think that is a very apt description of them. Under the noble-sounding description of promoting a healthy environment what they actually promote is cultural Marxism on a grand scale, getting government to promote their agenda where they can get away with it. In the end it is all about promoting some form of One World Government. The “energy crisis” and “global warming” aka Climate Change are all part of this, as is the United Nations Agenda 21 program with its “economic sustainability” program. All these projects have one end in mind–control of the populace as to what they can do, what they should think, or where they are permitted to go.

Back in 2009 an article on http://www.climatedepot.com for July 10th of that year noted: “Former Vice President Al Gore declared that the Congressional climate bill will help bring about ‘global governance’.” Gore also observed: “But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements.”

There was also an article, also back in 2009 on http://www.freerepublic.com for 11/26 of that year that stated: “Obama’s socialist Science Czar John Holdren, who once said that forced abortions were needed to save the planet, is also involved in the Climategate Scandal. Holdren, another socialist in the White House,  was pushing global cooling before he was pushing mad-made global warming.” It seems that the Leftists who want to control every aspect of our lives want to have it both ways. If global cooling won’t do the trick then how about global warming?

I also ran across another article that said: “”Global warming fraud exposed by email hackers.” This give you any idea as to why the feds are suddenly so hot to crack down on email hackers? Even George Will got into the act in a 2009 article on http”//www.newsmax.com when he talked about the agenda for a Climate Summit in Copenhagen. He observed that: “Its organizers had hoped it would produce binding caps on emissions, global taxation to redistribute millions of dollars, and micromanagement of everyone’s choices.” There’s that old Marxist “redistribution of the wealth” scam–all part of the phony “environmentalist movement.”

All this and lots, lots more can be traced back to the 100th anniversary of Lenin’s birth., So, in the final analysis Earth Day is really a celebration of Lenin’s birthday and earmarks a whole new level of attempted Leftist/Deep State control over our lives.

Who Did We Elect–Donald Or Jared?

by Al Benson Jr.

From all the news items I have been reading of late I am beginning to wonder who we all voted for in November–Donald Trump, or Jared Kushner and his wife, because it seems that we are getting the Kushners’ agenda instead of the agenda Donald Trump told us he was running on.

Mr. Trump has done several good things, but of late he seems to be leaning more toward being what we all voted against. I realize that with your in-laws ragging you all the time about the advisability of their agenda, as over against the agenda the voters put you into office to enact, it gets sort of difficult. But in all honesty, Mr. Trump, we did not elect you so you could fulfill  Jared Kushner’s liberal agenda! We voted for you so you wouldn’t do that. You said in your inauguration speech that you were returning power to the people. I sincerely hope the people you were returning it to were not Jared Kushner and his wife.

An article on http://www.zerohedge.com  for April 19th noted: “The global warming activist democrats in Trump’s White House,  led by Ivanka and Jarod Kushner, are trying to convince the President to reneg on yet another campaign pledge, against the advice of Steve Bannon. According to Bloomberg, a pro-Paris bloc in his administration, which targets greenhouse emissions, is recruiting energy companies to lobby the President to remain in the controversial agreement that he specifically said was a waste of money during the campaign…Both Steve Bannon and EPA head, Scott Pruitt want out of the agreement. But since Trump’s fashion designer daughter wants to keep her liberal NYC friends, the President is said to be weighing his options.” You know this Paris environmental fiasco has to be bad when even the head of the EPA doesn’t want anything to do with it.

Supposedly the administration will decide what they are going to do before the latter part of next month when world leaders get together for their next “climate change” bash in Paris.

Should Mr. Trump decide to go along with this foolishness they will naturally then be compelled to enact a whole new set of environmental regulations in order to comply. One wonders if the new regulations they will have to enact will cancel out Mr. Trump’s recent action of getting rid of cumbersome regulations in this country that were supposed to allow coal miners in West Virginia, Kentucky, and other nearby states to get back to work. If so, do we then have a classic example of the political shell game–giving some folks something with one hand and then taking it back with the other.

If Mr. Trump goes along with this environmental bilge flowing from the Paris agreement, will this undermine national sovereignty and self-government, because the whole point of this will have been to put the United States into a position where an international agreement, treaty, or group will be the deciding factor in what we do with our energy resources nationally?

I’m sorry, but “the science is far from settled” when it comes to global warming, and the fact that, years ago, the global warming people were caught fudging on their figures only proves that they don’t really have the “evidence” they claim they have. At one point Mr. Trump seemed to grasp that. It seems now he is in the process of forgetting it.

I supported Mr. Trump in the last election, the first time I have voted Republican in a presidential election literally in decades. However, I supported him conditionally–on the condition that he would try to do what he said he would. So far he has managed to do some of it, but if he, for whatever reason, suddenly decides to change horses in mid-stream and begins to support the neo-con/socialist Deep State agenda, then my support and that of lots of others like me, will be gone.

Should he, for whatever reason, start acting like Hillary’s second cousin and doing what she would have done, he will lose millions of supporters and those folks will go somewhere. He let nationalism out of the bag with his rhetoric. He will find that it’ won’t be that easy to put it back.

Something Smells Rotten in Syria (and in Washington, too)

by Al Benson Jr.

By now almost everyone still breathing has to have heard about this gas attack in Syria. Everyone is screaming that Assad did it, but as is the case with the fake story of Trump and his Russian connections, I have not seen any real evidence yet. Emotional outbursts there have been in abundance, but let’s see some evidence. There was none with the “Trump and the Russians” scenario, so let’s see some with this gas attack that proves that Assad did it. They say that Assad has that sarin gas used in the attack. He probably does, but ISIS has it too, or at least some possibly watered-down form of it.

The reports I’ve heard say that Assad has been winning his war against ISIS. Not that the news media would ever report that. But, if that is the case, why would he then turn around and pull a bonehead stunt like this one that will set everything back for him and get the Americans mad at him? It makes no earthly sense!

And something else bothers me about all this. All of a sudden all the people in Washington that hated Trump’s guts; McCain, Pelosi, Schumer, and a whole batch of other slithery Leftist creatures who couldn’t say enough bad things about him re now, all of a sudden, staunchly in his corner and they just love what he is doing in Syria Does that tell you anything??? It tells me that they have finally found some way to co-opt him, whether through his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, which I have seen reports of, or in some other way. All of a sudden Trump is dealing with the very folks that, a month ago, were working to slit his political throat. And his core concept of making America great again  seems to be going by the wayside in favor of the neo-con’s “nation building” program in the Middle East–the exact same game Comrade Obama played so very well, as did Bush 2 before him.

Interestingly enough, on http://www.garynorth.com for April 8th, Mr. North noted: “Donald Trump campaigned on the promise he would ‘bomb the hell out of ISIS.’ Instead he bombed installations of the Syrian government. This was on April 6, 2017–one hundred years to the day after the House voted for war with Germany.” This gas attack has “false flag” written all over it!

Back when Slick Willie was in office and having his problems over “that woman” Monica Lewinsky, and there was talk of his impeachment, Clinton “suddenly” decided to bomb Iraq–with “the unanimous support of his national security advisers.” Given the body count of those who had disagreed with the Clintons over something or other, would they have dared to say anything else? According to an article on http://www.dailymail.co.uk  for August 26, 2016: “The strikes–known as Operation Desert Fox–were ordered the day after the House of Representatives issued  report accusing the president of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ and ended the day the articles of impeachment were passed. Previous strikes in 1996, Operation Desert Strike, were ordered during a campaign finance scandal.” So it often seems that problems in the Middle East suddenly erupt when some scandal in Washington is about to erupt–and they are very convenient for focusing media and public attention on the Middle East, and away from the potential scandal problem. Understand, I am not accusing President Trump of anything, except possibly a lack of historical knowledge and probably taking bad advice from some family members, and those who have a vested interest in dragging us (and him) away from his “America first” agenda and back  into the New World Order agenda.

Consider this; there seems to be a growing possibility that this Susan Rice affair could turn out badly for Hillary and the other socialist Democrats and there has been mounting concern over that in the past couple weeks. How much have you seen in the prostitute press about that since this Syrian situation hit?

Mr. Trump has been a shrewd businessman (and I don’t mean that in a negative sense), but I don’t think he has yet grasped the totally devious nature of the political mind and how underhanded it can really be. That, and bad advice, for whatever reason, from his in-laws,  seems to be leading him down the New World Order’s garden path at this point. Let us pray the Lord will give him wisdom to see where all this is going, and that he might repent of it and return to his original vision–the one the voters put him into office to enact.

What About Hillary’s Security Clearance?

by Al Benson Jr.

Just read an interesting article on http://www.thepoliticalinsider.com for April 5th that stated: “A stunning report from Fox News indicates that the Obama administration granted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton  and six of her top aides access to top secret and classified information–even after she left the State Department in 2013, even after she announced a run for the White House in April of 2015, and even after FBI Director James Comey declared that Clinton and her staff had been ‘extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information’.” Seeing that Hillary and associates are above the law I realize none of this will make any difference, but it bugs me enough that I have to write about it anyway.

Knowing the Marxist proclivities of the Obama administration this should come as no surprise. With classified information in the hands of the Obama administration, the country’s enemies already had control of it, so if Hillary, accidentally or otherwise, spread some of it around–why who cared?

Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa noted this and he said: “I have repeatedly asked the State Department whether Secretary Clinton and her associates had their clearances suspended or revoked to which the Obama administration refused to respond.”  No surprise here either. Obama continually “stonewalled” Grassley’s requests for this information. That tell you anything?  Grassley took note of this and passed this information on to the new Secretary of State under Trump, Rex Tillerson. He also observed to Tillerson that Clinton had asked for access to classified information because she was in the process of writing her memoirs (again).

How many times has this woman testified before some congressional committee or other that  she could barely remember her own name and that of her infamous husband, but any details over and above these seemed to totally escape her? Yet when it comes to writing yet another book (for which she will get millions) all of a sudden all the memories and details thereof come flooding back (at least those she wants us to know about).

Just a couple brief questions here: Why did she need access to classified information to write her memoirs? Was she planning on passing along some of that information to her readers? Fox News also asked some of these same questions so I am not alone. The Political Insider article noted: “Fox News reported, ‘The State Department has not yet responded to an inquiry from Fox News as to whether Clinton, or her staff…still have access to the classified and top-secret archives and systems’.”

Believe it or not, almost three months into a Trump administration, this question is still pending. Grassley is still wanting to know if the current Secretary of State agrees with the FBI determination that Hillary was “extremely careless” in dealing with classified information. He also wants to know–and this is the sixty-four dollar question–Has the State Department started to review the security clearances of Hillary or her aides?

Grassley asked that question, as noted in an article on The Hill on March 31st of this year. So it’s a legitimate question at this point. One can almost hear someone in the State Department shouting in reply: We have already cancelled Hillary’s security clearance tomorrow!  So, has Hillary’s security clearance and those of her aides been revoked at this point–and if not, why not??? That’s the other brief question.

The State Department has been a thorn in the sides of genuine patriots all the way back to the days of Alger Hiss. Maybe none of you all are old enough to remember him. If the name doesn’t ring any bells look him up on the Internet.

So we need to ask, in all honesty–even with a Trump administration–do we still have the same problems with the State Department that we have had in the past? What about Hillary’s security clearance??? Has it been revoked, or do we need to start asking our senators why it hasn’t been? Rand Paul might be a good one to ask about that. I’m sure he’d have a more genuine concern than many of the others, and he’d want answers too.
