As you may have heard, e-commerce giant Amazon has had to drastically scale back its warehouse square footage in recent months due to labor and energy cost increases. Why, then, is the company simultaneously gobbling up land all across the country in key markets?
One of the company’s most recent purchases was 193 acres of land located just outside of Round Rock, Tex., near Austin. Texas’ lenient land-use laws mean that Amazon can use this massive parcel for whatever it wishes – so what is on the agenda?
According to reports, Amazon’s land accumulation endeavors started about three years ago. The Seattle-based retail predator quietly started searching for land in Southern California, Texas, Illinois, Florida, and the Bay Area. Since that time, the company has just about tripled the amount of industrial space it owns in North America.
Between 2020 and 2022, Amazon acquired some 4,000 acres of bare land, says real estate researcher CoStar Group Inc. Some of this land will probably be used for new fulfillment centers, but the rest of what the company has planned remains unclear.

“Buying land is a major shift for Amazon, which historically relied on a handful of developers to find property, build fairly simple warehouses and rent them back to the company,” reports Supply Chain Brain.
“Now Amazon is increasingly taking parts of the development process in-house, often bidding against long-time partners for the best space.”
Do you want to live in an America with Amazon fulfillment centers in every corner?
During the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) plandemic, Amazon massively overbuilt its warehouse square footage as shopping volume saw massive declines. Despite this, the company now says that there will be no changes made to its long-term real estate strategy, which includes buying up lots of land.
More than likely, a lot of the land Amazon is buying will, in fact, be turned into fulfillment centers that are close to people’s homes. If it does not grab any land it can get, competitors like Walmart will capture the market instead.
“There’s going to be something on the other side of all of this investment for the consumer,” says John Blackledge, an analyst at Cowen and Company LLC. “People will buy more on Amazon when they see they can get it in five hours instead of two days.”
In the past two years, Amazon has spent approximately $2.2 billion acquiring new land and properties. This is considered to be a conservative estimate, suggesting that Amazon has actually spent much more money on land.
For many years before that, Amazon took a much different approach to its business. With Jeff Bezos at the helm, the company historically made very few investments in real estate – almost too few, by corporate standards.
That has since changed, and now Amazon is buying up land like crazy. What does the company have in store for the world moving into the future? Does it plan to control every aspect of the retail experience, becoming the only shop in town with a fulfillment center on every corner?
Amazon’s so-called “Fresh” grocery stores are another element in the company’s business model. These Orwellian facilities feature thousands of surveillance cameras on the ceiling that watch customers as they put things in their carts and automatically charge them when they walk out the door.
It seems as though Amazon wants to own America. And it is accomplishing this by buying as much land as possible, much like how billionaire eugenicist Bill Gates is buying up hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland all across the country.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
