“Send a joint military force to protect the Palestinians in Gaza.” This proposal was officially made by Erdogan to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

This is not a joke but a very serious Turkish proposal which proves the strategic depth of the Russia-Turkey relationship.

Through military escalation, Erdogan wants to send a mission or “peacekeeping force” to Gaza with the ultimate goal of putting pressure on Israel militarily and the Palestinians to gain an EEZ.

And the Palestinian EEZ will at some point be united with the Turkish one, just as it was with the falsified Turkish-Libyan Memorandum.

It also proves who is behind the blows of Hamas. It is not just Iran. It is also Turkey.

This development also “wipes out” many inside and outside Greece who bet on the return of Turkey to the West.

Erdogan to Putin: “Sending Army to Gaza”

Erdogan made an incredible proposal to Putin, pretending to be the regional power and replacing the UN Security Council.

Erdogan called for “the possibility of sending a peacekeeping force to the Israeli-Gaza border to protect Palestinian civilians.”

The Turkish president also told Putin that “the international community must teach Israel a hard and deterrent lesson”, adding that Turkey was “working to mobilize such a reaction.”

At the same time, he stressed that ” Russia and Turkey share the same stance on developments in the Palestinian issue, which sends a strong message.”

“The UN Security Council must be involved and a clear message sent to Israel to stop the attacks before the crisis escalates further,” Erdogan added.

“Russia and Turkey have a common position”

“I welcome the statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry on the parameters of the UN on a two-state solution to the Palestinian question”

This is an important message that shows that Ankara and Moscow have a common position.

“Russia and Turkey must work closely with the United Nations.”

For his part, the Russian president congratulated the Turkish Nation on the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr, which follows the holy month of Ramadan.

At the same time, the Kremlin announced that the Russian and Turkish presidents had called for a “de-escalation” in the new deadly conflict between Hamas and the Jewish state.

“They have expressed their deep concern over the ongoing fighting, the number of dead and wounded, ” the Russian presidency said.

“Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan have called on the parties to escalate tensions.”

FAKE CALM in Ukraine as Ukraine Deploys S300 to Donbas and US Navy Seals Prepare for Black Sea and Taiwan

Apparently the calm and the Russian “withdrawal” of troops from close to the front lines in Donbas are mostly fake and Russia could move back into place quickly. To go along with that this article says that the USA wants it’s world domination back and is willing to pay any price to get it. From Warnews24/7.

Article writer: Theofrastos Andreopoulos

The Ukrainians moved S-300 anti-aircraft systems to Donbass, and the Americans changed the Navy Seals’ course of action to deal with the world’s other superpowers, Russia and China, no longer terrorist organizations.

Especially for the Navy Seals it is clear that they will be used in environments such as Ukraine and Taiwan where their access by sea is considered a given.

Virtual de-escalation in Ukraine

The de-escalation in Ukraine was virtual as the Americans realized that the Ukrainians were unable to cope with the mighty Russian machine and needed extra time to strengthen Ukrainian forces in Donbas.

Of course, even if they were reinforced, even if NATO carried out a transfer of forces to Ukraine, they would still be at a disadvantage vis-των-vis the Russians as their power near the Russian border is enormous, but the US wants to proceed with a global “clearing of accounts” for to regain planetary hegemony with whatever the consequences.

Navy Seals change dogma: “No more terrorism, enemies are Russia and China”

Ten years after the ouster and extermination of Osama bin Laden, the US Navy SEALs are making a major leap in expanding their combat capabilities and capabilities as long-range patrols to take advantage of “global powers” as reported by the LA. Times, China and Russia.

Their new structure cuts the number of squads by 30% and increases their size to make teams much more lethal and capable of facing technologically powerful naval and underwater rivals.

So the new doctrine will fit in Ukraine, Taiwan (where they will be called to prevent landings) and of course on the Baltic, Arctic fronts and probably in the “Golden Triangle” (Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam) where there could be a Chinese descent. to cut off the sea routes of the Indian Ocean.

The selection process changes

In fact, the selection process for the Navy Seals is changing as they will be considered to have higher ethical standards after the recent incidents that shocked the unit and had to do with charges of murder, rape and drug use.

As their commander, Admiral Hugh Howard, put it, ” The Navy’s Special Operations Forces were focused on counter-terrorism operations but now they need to evolve.” “For the past two decades, many have been fighting in the deserts of Iraq and in the mountains of Afghanistan. Now they will return to the sea.”

This decision has to do with the Pentagon’s strategy of prioritizing China and Russia, which are rapidly developing their own armed forces and trying to expand their influence around the world.

According to the US military leadership, two decades of wars against extremists have depleted resources, causing the US to lose ground to Moscow and Beijing.

“The fight against terrorism has had its advantages, allowing SEALs to sharpen their talents in developing intelligence networks and finding and killing targets, but now we need to push ourselves against constant threats.”

Howard adds SEAL cadres with skills in cyber warfare and cyber warfare, as well as in unmanned systems to gather information about the enemy and deceive him.

The goal is to integrate SEALs into Navy missions at sea.

Those who believe that Russia and the United States will find each other are wrong. Because the Americans want to have the undisputed primacy on the planet again.

To have this they are willing to risk everything.

NATO in Checkmate in Ukraine, Turkey’s Erdogan Backs Ukraine in Territorial Dispute with Russia

Operation Disclosure | By David Lifschultz, Contributing Writer

Submitted on April 9, 2021

NATO CHECKMATED AT THE UKRAINE

Compliments of the Lifschultz Organization founded in 1899

The position of NATO has never been weaker. In a military confrontation with Russia it would lose the war in ten minutes or less as the Russian hypersonic missiles wiped out all air fields of NATO as well as any they can use, and the Russian shock armies can reach the English Channel in two weeks. The formidable air force of NATO would either have been wiped out or fled as far as they could fly away. That is if Russia so chooses. If Russia chooses to occupy just the Ukraine, and the US blocks Russia at SWIFT-CHIPS, Russia would most certainly take over the 14 million barrels a day of oil in the stans such as Kazackstan, and the others, and block 25% of the oil and going to the west. We see now frantic US negotiations with Iran for if Iran in alliance with Russia shuts the Straits of Hormuz, then another 22% of the world oil supply would be blocked.  

This would trigger an implosion of the 600 trillion to 1.5 quadrillion derivative structure, and what is left of the burned down and lawless cities in the US would totally collapse triggering at least a 50% unemployment. That would be an end of the totally corrupted US system where elections are stolen as a matter of course for hundreds of years not just the recent one, key cases at the Supreme Court have always been fixed for centuries, the whole court system is rotten, as well as the House and Senate each of whose members has a Hunter Biden to collect bribes.  We understand there may be a further delay in the exit from Afghanistan so Hunter Biden can get his hands on some billions of dollars of the heroin loot presently divvied up between the CIA and DIA. And half the US is on transfer payments. Half its industry lies in ruin in rust belts, and the flood of immigration is destroying the wage structure of the poor who cannot support a family while on Wall St. the cash settlement manipulations protected by the SEC and DOJ steal at least a trillion dollars a year for the billion dollar tycoons. When I put my ear to the ground methinks I hear the tumbrils going to Madame Guillotine full of billionaire Wall Street swindlers. We are not counting naked shorting and currency manipulation. This is not to speak of the 26% unemployed if we count those out of work over a year.

Now we move to Turkey as President Erdogan calls for an end to “worrying developments” in Eastern Ukraine after meeting with President Zelensky of Ukraine in Turkey today. From Yahoo News…

ANKARA/KYIV (Reuters) – Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday called for the “worrying” developments in eastern Ukraine’s Donbass region to come to an end after meeting his Ukrainian counterpart in Istanbul, adding Turkey was ready to provide any necessary support.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy held more than three hours of talks with Erdogan in Istanbul as part of a previously scheduled visit, amid tensions between Kyiv and Moscow over the conflict in Donbass.

Kyiv has raised the alarm over a buildup of Russian forces near the border between Ukraine and Russia, and over a rise in violence along the line of contact separating Ukrainian troops and Russia-backed separatists in Donbass.

The Russian military movements have fuelled concerns that Moscow is preparing to send forces into Ukraine. The Kremlin denies its troops are a threat, but says they will remain as long as it sees fit.

The United States says Russia has amassed more troops on Ukraine’s eastern border than at any time since 2014, when it annexed Crimea from Ukraine and backed separatists in Donbass. On Friday, Turkey said Washington will send two warships to the Black Sea next week.

Speaking at a news conference alongside Zelenskiy, Erdogan said he hoped the conflict would be resolved peacefully, through dialogue based on diplomatic customs, in line with international laws and Ukraine’s territorial integrity.

“We hope for the worrying escalation observed on the field recently to end as soon as possible, the ceasefire to continue and for the conflict to be resolved via dialogue on the basis of the Minsk agreements,” Erdogan said. “We are ready to provide any support necessary for this.”

Next Hal Turner fills in a few more details about this meeting in Turkey and how it “stabs Russia in the face” (vs the back I guess?)

The second way that Turkey stabbed Russia in the face today was its declaration that US Navy Destroyers would be allowed to enter the Black Sea for “Humanitarian” purposes, and that Turkey would not enforce the military vessel limitation of the Montreaux Convention upon such “Humanitarian” vessels; but WOULD enforce that same Montreaux Convention upon RUSSIAN vessels if war breaks out between Russia and Ukraine!

Some folks find it difficult to describe a US Navy Destroyer as a “Humanitarian” vessel. You can read the rest of his take on the meeting in Turkey HERE.

That’s it for now but this meeting in Turkey was big and all indications are that Russia is going in hard next week, or by the beginning of May 2021. Whether or not this turns into WW3 is anyone’s guess but the other rumor is that China will take Taiwan AND THE PHILLIPINES once this all kicks off in Ukraine. IF NATO gets involved in Ukraine its WW3. If the USA interferes in Taiwan its WW3. We are headed for a major war.

Prayed up and prepped up at all times. God bless and stay strong.

Unmarked Naval Vessels and Submarines harrassing Nordstream 2 Pipeline workers, Support Ship RAMMED!

Polish Fishing Vessel Rams Support Ship Feb 22 2021

Some are even trying to RAM INTO the pipe laying ships in an attempt to derail construction of the Nordstream 2 pipeline which would bring natural gas from Russia into Europe. One of the more serious ramming incidents took place back on Feb. 22nd 2021 and yet there wasn’t even a peep in the western media. Here is some information from Tass.ru.

MOSCOW, April 1. / TASS /. The company – the operator of the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline – Nord Stream 2 AG – announced the increased activity of warships and civilian vessels in the area of ​​the pipeline laying. These actions are provocative and can lead to emergency damage to the gas pipeline, Andrei Minin, director of the Nord Stream 2 AG branch, told reporters.

“After the resumption of the construction of the offshore section of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in January 2021, there has been an increased activity of warships, aircraft and helicopters, as well as civilian vessels of foreign countries, whose actions are often clearly provocative in nature,” he said. .

Minin recalled that during the implementation of such projects, a 1.5-mile safety zone is established, which should not be entered by ships not participating in the construction. “Nevertheless, near the technical vessels carrying out the work, warships of foreign states are constantly recorded (including by tactical numbers). The Polish anti-submarine aircraft PZL- Mielec М-28В1 Rbi “, – he said.

Minin said that foreign activity around pipe-laying vessels has intensified recently. Thus, on March 28, an unidentified submarine appeared on the surface in the protective zone of the pipe-laying vessel at a distance of less than one mile. “Considering that Fortuna’s anchor lines are located more than one mile away, the submarine’s actions could disable the entire anchor positioning system of the pipe-lay barge and lead to emergency damage to the pipeline,” he explained.

Fishing vessel incidents

He noted that in recent months, there have been “more dangerous incidents” associated with the entry into the security zone of the work of fishing vessels, which at the same time did not go into radio communication. “On February 22, 2021, while pipelaying south of the Danish island of Bornholm, the Polish fishing vessel SWI-106 entered the work protection zone from the southern direction. Repeated attempts to establish radio contact with it were unsuccessful. In this situation, the supply vessel Vladislav Strizhev was forced to leave on the course of pushing back, as a result, SWI-106 made a bulk on Vladislav Strizhev. After the collision, the captain of the fishing vessel got in touch and pleaded guilty to the incident, “Minin said, noting that” if it were not for the decisive actions of the supply vessel, the blow would have hit the Fortuna pipe-laying barge.

A naval protest was lodged over this incident through the Russian consulate in Germany.

According to Minin, a similar incident was repeated on March 30, when two objects were discovered in the immediate vicinity of the pipe-laying barge, one of which was heading towards Fortuna and did not answer radio calls.

“It was decided to start moving towards the object on a crossing course. The ship’s floodlights were used to attract attention. At about 4:00 a fishing vessel was spotted, which changed course and went south without making radio contact. The second object was waiting in the southwest. he also left Fortuna without answering radio calls, “said the director of the Nord Stream 2 AG branch.

He stressed that the actions of warships and aircraft, as well as civil ships of foreign states, violating the security zone of the construction of an international project, not responding to requests and approaching a dangerous distance to the pipe-laying barge, are irresponsible and unacceptable. “They create a real threat of emergencies with unpredictable consequences,” Minin said.https://moevideo.biz/native?id=mv-content-roll-1309&slot=content&api=2.0&ref=tass.ru

“We are talking about clearly planned and prepared provocations, both with the use of fishing vessels and warships, submarines and aircraft in order to obstruct the implementation of an economic project. This is perhaps the first and unprecedented case of this kind in history,” he summed up.

President Zelensky of Ukraine approves strategy for de-occupation, reintegration of Crimea

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky put into effect the decision of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine dated March 11, 2021 on the Strategy for the de-occupation and reintegration of the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

According to the press service of the head of state, the document defines a set of measures of a diplomatic, military, economic, informational, humanitarian and other nature aimed at restoring the territorial integrity, state sovereignty of Ukraine within internationally recognized borders through the de-occupation and reintegration of Crimea.

In particular, the strategy defines the priorities for the state to protect human rights and freedoms violated as a result of the temporary occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. Also, the strategy gives a clear signal to the international community that Ukraine is consistent in its actions to restore territorial integrity.

“According to the strategy, within the framework of the state policy to ensure the de-occupation of the territory of Crimea, Ukraine is initiating an international negotiation process to determine the modalities for the liberation of the temporarily occupied territory and the restoration of the constitutional order of Ukraine on this territory, based, in particular, on the provisions of the memorandum on security guarantees in connection with the accession of Ukraine to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, as well as on the results of the activities of the Crimean Platform,” the document said.

It is noted that Ukraine is developing the Crimean Platform as a key foreign policy instrument for consolidating international efforts aimed at de-occupation of Crimea, as well as protecting the rights and interests of Ukrainian citizens.

Also, the document is a call for the unification of international efforts in the protection of international law and the development of peace and security in Europe.

The Cabinet of Ministers was instructed to draft a plan for the implementation of the strategy for the de-occupation and reintegration of the temporarily occupied Crimea, on the basis of which the relevant state bodies will prepare and implement measures to ensure the de-occupation and reintegration of the peninsula.

There were more details about the military part of the plan on Hal Turner’s Site. Link here.

The military has been instructed to use “hybrid warfare” to re-conquer Crimea and Sevastopol, and the Order explicitly acknowledges these actions will openly war against Russia!

Worse, the Kerch Bridge is now a target and we will certainly see Russian moves to protect it.

The bridge spans the Kerch Strait between mainland Russia and Crimea.  It is an engineering marvel, constructed by Russia after the people of Crimea voted in 2011 to leave Ukraine and return to Russia.

Ukraine refuses to recognize that Referendum, claiming the vote was “rigged.” Ninety-Seven Percent (97%) of those voting, chose to return to Russia, which Crimea was part of for three hundred years, before then-Soviet Leader Nikita Kruschev, “gave” the peninsula to Ukraine about 50 years ago.

There you have it that is the latest on the situation in the Ukraine. It appears Ukraine is intent on re-unification NOW and they will use whatever means necassary to achieve it. Stay ready, make your final preps and most of all PRAY! Stay right with Jesus and if you’re not do it now! Time is short and this could erupt any day now.

Russia was in joint excerises with Belarus today as the Russian Airborne troops joined the Belarus army, as we and Hal were reporting the last couple of days. Here is the video from my Twitter feed.

As I Reported Yesterday

Israel’s Gantz Claims Iran is Responsible for Explosion on Israeli Cargo Ship

As I predicted a few days ago in this YT REPORT, Israel is blaming this “explosion” on their cargo vessel on Iran. Here is a tweet I found with pictures of the damage to which some are comparing to the limpet mines that were blamed on Iran a few years ago.

Look familiar?

Now I will refer you to what Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz had to say about this incident to the press yesterday. This report comes from Reuters.

 Israeli defence minister Benny Gantz said on Saturday his “initial assessment” was that Iran was responsible for an explosion on an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman.

The ship, a vehicle-carrier named MV Helios Ray, suffered an explosion between Thursday and Friday morning. A U.S. defence official in Washington said the blast left holes above the waterline in both sides of the hull. The cause was not immediately clear and no casualties were reported.

“Iran is looking to hit Israeli infrastructure and Israeli citizens,” Gantz told the public broadcaster Kan. “The location of the ship in relative close proximity to Iran raises the notion, the assessment, that it is the Iranians.”

“Right now, at an initial assessment level, given the proximity and the context – that is my assessment,” Gantz said, adding a deeper investigation still had to be carried out.

There was no immediate comment from Iranian officials.

The ship is owned by a Tel Aviv company called Ray Shipping through a company registered in the Isle of Man, according to a U.N. shipping database.

Israeli Channel 13 News said defence officials believed the Iranian navy had launched a precision strike to avoid casualties, firing two missiles at a part of the ship that if damaged would not have sunk the vessel.

It added an Israeli delegation was en route to Dubai, where the ship was docked, to investigate.

Reuters was not immediately able to confirm the report.

Kan named the owner as Rami Ungar and quoted him on Friday as saying: “The damage is two holes, diameter approximately 1.5 metres, but it is not yet clear to us if this was caused by missile fire or mines that were attached to the ship.”

Johnny’s Commentary

This shouldn’t surprise anyone since the US just bombed Syria directly last week and it appears that the Biden Administration is going to continue to push for war with Iran (on behalf of the Zionists of course). Remember Joe Biden has said he’s a Zionist on several different occasions so don’t expect any breakthroughs with Israel and their war crimes anytime soon.

What does surprise me is that Israel and the US are using this method of false flag again. Didn’t the US just try this 2 years ago with Bolton and Pompeo in charge? Did someone bring Bolton back? This smells like one of his hairbrained schemes to justify a shooting war with Iran. It appears Israel likes that tactic so now they’re using it again to try to blame Iran for wanting to harm Israel.

The question is does this justify war with Iran? By itself I would say no it doesn’t because it doesn’t wash. Where’s the motive for Iran to attack Israel in this manner? It would be contributing to their own demise and Iran isn’t suicidal. Retaliation for their dead nuclear scientist? I doubt it because any retaliation would be a much larger show than just an explosion on a random Israeli cargo ship. There’s no impact with an attack like that and Iran needs to make a larger statement than that if this were truly a retaliation for their assassinated nuclear scientist.

However this “explosion”, combined with the nuclear program issues, terrorism, militias in Iraq and Syria causing trouble could justify Israel and their big brother the USA to start a war with Iran. They’ll use the usual rhetoric saying things like “we can’t let them get a nuke” or “they must pay for their sponsorship of worldwide terror” or any combination of those and other catchphrases they drum up for war. Right now war between the US, Israel and Iran feels definite, that it WILL HAPPEN soon. Israel wants/needs this war in order to bring about their Messiah, which they were praying about last weekend, remember?

I would suggest getting your last minute preps in order because between the lockdowns, banking “glitches” with the federal reserve and Visa/Mastercard last week, volcanoes and earthquakes popping off at record levels and more we are rapidly heading into the tribulation, so be ready! Prayed up first, prepped up second. You never know when its your time so be ready to go!

Iran installs 2nd batch of advanced centrifuges at Natanz

Source: Times of Israel

Iran has continued to ramp up its nuclear program in violation of its 2015 agreement with world powers by further enriching uranium and installing new centrifuges, the United Nations’ nuclear agency said.

The fresh breaches of the nuclear deal came as tensions continued to climb in the Middle East, and US and Israeli officials issued warnings about Iran’s nuclear program.

The International Atomic Energy Agency — in a confidential report obtained by Reuters and published Tuesday — said Iran has begun enriching uranium in its underground Natanz plant with a second cascade, or cluster, of centrifuges,.

Iran recently installed a second cascade of advanced IR-2m centrifuges at Natanz to enrich uranium and will soon add a third. Iran was only allowed to use a less advanced type of centrifuge under the terms of the nuclear deal.

The first cascade it installed recently was composed of 174 IR-2m machines, according to Reuters.

Iran’s envoy to the UN nuclear watchdog confirmed on Tuesday the installation of the second batch of advanced centrifuges at Natanz.

“Thanks to our diligent nuclear scientists, two cascades of 348 IR2m centrifuges with almost 4 times the capacity of IR1 are now running… successfully in Natanz,” Kazem Gharibabadi said on Twitter. “Installation of 2 cascades of IR6 centrifuges has also been started in Fordo. There’s more to come soon.”https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1356579388263968768&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.timesofisrael.com%2Fun-iran-breaching-deal-installs-2nd-batch-of-advanced-centrifuges-at-natanz%2F&siteScreenName=timesofisrael&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

Natanz is Iran’s main nuclear enrichment plant. An explosion at the site last year, which foreign media reports have attributed to Israel or the US, damaged an advanced centrifuge development and assembly plant.

Iran said last month it planned to install 1,000 new centrifuges at Natanz within three months and that its scientists had exceeded previous goals for uranium enrichment.

Also last month, Tehran announced it was beginning to enrich uranium up to 20 percent — far beyond the 3.5% permitted under the nuclear deal, and a relatively small technical step away from the 90% needed for a nuclear weapon. Iran also said it was beginning research into uranium metal, a material that technically has civilian uses but is seen as another likely step toward a nuclear bomb.

Iran said last week it would also move to restrict short-notice inspections of suspect nuclear facilities from late February.

Iran insists it is not seeking to develop nuclear weapons, a position repeated last week by its Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Tuesday’s report came amid a flurry of activity surrounding Iran’s nuclear program and as Iran and the US maneuvered ahead of expected negotiations.

US President Joe Biden has said he intends to return to the nuclear deal if Iran first returns to compliance. Iran says the US must first remove all of the sanctions it placed on the country after it withdrew from the treaty.Iran’s nuclear enrichment facility in Natanz, 300 kilometers (186 miles) south of the capital Tehran, on April, 9, 2007. (Hasan Sarbakhshian/AP)

Zarif on Monday asked the European Union to coordinate a synchronized return of both Washington and Tehran into a nuclear deal.

The US and Iran have exchanged barbs, both before and after Biden took control of the White House, including by issuing threats and carrying out military maneuvers.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that Iran was currently months away from being able to produce enough material to build a nuclear weapon. And, he said, that timeframe could be reduced to “a matter of weeks” if Tehran further violates restrictions it agreed to under the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Iran and the Trump administration exchanged a steady stream of threats before Trump’s term ended on January 20, with Iran also carrying out fresh breaches of the nuclear agreement. Iran’s aggressive moves were believed to be partially aimed at increasing its leverage ahead of negotiations with Biden.

Jeff Bezos Stepping Down as Amazon CEO

Why now?

Jeff Bezos will step down as Amazon CEO in the third quarter of 2021.

In a letter to Amazon employees published Tuesday afternoon, Bezos announced that he would transition to executive chairman, where he’ll focus on “new products and early initiatives.”

“Being the CEO of Amazon is a deep responsibility, and it’s consuming,” Bezos wrote. “When you have a responsibility like that, it’s hard to put attention on anything else.”

Bezos said that while he will still be involved in important initiatives at Amazon, he plans to spend more time on philanthropy ” including the Bezos Earth Fund and his Day 1 Fund ” as well as his two other major endeavors: the Washington Post, which he purchased 2013, and his rocket company, Blue Origin.

Andy Jassy, who currently serves as CEO of Amazon Web Services, will replace him. Bezos wrote that Jassy will be an outstanding leader, and that he has Bezos’ “full confidence.”

Like I said why now? Stay prayed up and prepped up.
