A Vice President of e-commerce giant Amazon has resigned over the company’s treatment of its warehouse workers, citing the firing of whistleblowers of warned of coronavirus risks in the company’s workplaces in a blog post.

Tim Bray announced his resignation as a VP and Distinguished Engineer at Amazon Web Services on Monday.

He mentioned several ethical points of disagreement with the company’s management in a blog post, and explained why the company’s treatment of coronavirus whistleblowers was the straw that broke the camel’s back. He describes company responses to worker-organized events over safety concerns as callously indifferent; merely firing Amazon warehouse workers who were sharing their safety concerns.

Management could have objected to the event, or demanded that outsiders be excluded, or that leadership be represented, or any number of other things; there was plenty of time. Instead, they just fired the activists.

Snap! At that point I snapped. VPs shouldn’t go publicly rogue, so I escalated through the proper channels and by the book. I’m not at liberty to disclose those discussions, but I made many of the arguments appearing in this essay. I think I made them to the appropriate people.

Bray described the employee firings as “chickenshit” when asked to describe the actions of Amazon’s corporate overlords.

While the coronavirus-related recession has destroyed the wealth of small businesses, it’s been a jackpot for the global mega-commerce monopoly. Oligarch Jeff Bezos’ personal wealth has grown by $24 billion in the midst of the pandemic, making the company’s owner the wealthiest person in the world once more.

New York Amazon worker Chris Smalls(since fired by the global monopoly) has been the most publicly visible protestor, leading a walkout at the company’s Staten Island warehouse. Leaked communications from Amazon’s corporate executives revealed the company hoped to depict the New York man as “not smart, or articulate.”

John Podesta “Refused to Concede” In Democratic Election Wargame While Roleplaying as Joe Biden

Prepping for the real thing?

Published

A Democratic election simulation program preparing party elites for possible outcomes of the November presidential election has featured a scenario in which Joe Biden, who was roleplayed by Democratic operative John Podesta, will refuse to concede defeat in the election, according to reporting about the event from the New York Times.

The so-called Transition Integrity Project was created with the idea of preparing Democratic Party elites for four different outcomes of the election. One result of the election simulation wargame involved an electoral college simulation in which President Donald Trump secures a strong electoral vote victory while losing the popular vote to Biden, who was played by the former Clinton operative Podesta.

Podesta refused to concede the presidential election in that scenario, citing what he maintained was voter suppression in Wisconsin and Michigan. Podesta, within the confines of the scenario, convinced the governors of the states to send the votes of pro-Biden electors to the House in an attempt to inaugurate Biden as President, despite losing the states.

In the scenario, the House of Representatives recognized Joe Biden as the legitimate President of the United States, while the executive branch of the federal government and the Senate recognized President Trump as the rightful President.

Perhaps most shockingly, in the roleplay scenario Podesta was impersonating Biden in, the Democrat states of California, Washington, and Oregon openly threatened to secede from the United States in the event that President Trump was sworn in for a second term in office, upping the stakes of the constitutional crisis to the point of a potential Second American Civil War with a beginning similar to the first one.

The roleplay of the event ended when organizers determined the American people would look to the military to resolve the situation.

That the Democratic Party elites  would even maintain such a fundamental rejection of an American election as legitimate shows the danger of the extremist neoliberal party.
