I'm not going to touch that.
What I will touch is this:
"What's with the rumor floating about that this is Biden's last week as President? Seems like there might be buzz that Harris is going to 25A him or something. Anyone know where this came from?
The South American nation Chile is aiming to be the world's first to legally protect citizens' "neuro-rights," with lawmakers expected to pass a constitutional reform blocking technology that seeks to "increase, diminish or disturb" people's mental integrity without their consent.
"If this technology manages to read (your mind), before even you're aware of what you're thinking," he told AFP, "it could write emotions into your brain: life stories that aren't yours and that your brain won't be able to distinguish whether they were yours or the product of designers."
The Chilean bill contains four main fields of legislation: guarding the human mind's data, or neuro-data; fixing limits to the neuro-technology of reading and especially writing in brains; setting an equitable distribution and access to these technologies; and putting limits on neuro-algorithms.
The science has opened the possibility of designing hybrid humans with artificially enhanced cognitive abilities.

Twitter is trending "Trump or Biden" ---- seriously.
People discuss whether they prefer President Joe Biden or former president Donald Trump
It is not as you'd imagine. Something is brewing.
By now we all know how it works,

Much of this video by Amazing Polly might be redundant to some, lol, sometimes I don’t totally understand things the first time ( or few times ) I hear them ! I like Polly, she’s a great researcher and communicator, at the end of this video she talks about the CIA “ Alice in Wonderland “ program...although we’ve talked about this here many times, in many ways, this “clicked” for me in a new way...worth watching.

Bibi speaking (in English skip to 8:20) earlier today about what the IDF has done thus far.
Not a ceasefire announcement or anything like that, just sounds like an operational update to the Israeli public.
"We've assassinated senior Hamas and PIJ officials."
"The operation will take as long as it needs."
"We hit Hamas and terror infrastructure all around Gaza."
To top it off he thanks Biden for his support.
Netanyahu's constant kicking the can down the road over the years has only allowed Hamas and the other groups in Gaza to get stronger. The battle against Hamas is going to be much more bloody BECAUSE of that.
Seems a repeat of the tactics used in the 2006 Lebanon war: Bomb-high rises in response to major rocket attacks hoping it will deter future strikes. It probably won't.
Water cooler small talk...
We’ll profile several of Kaldec’s cronies in the coming weeks. For now, we give you Fuad El-Hibri.
Fuad El-Hibri’s company, Emergent BioSolutions, has been a top recipient of government spending on biodefense since it monopolized anthrax vaccine research in the 1990s.
Kadlec was a former Emergent consultant and founding partner with El-Hibri of the biodefense company East West Protection
As the documentary, “Anthrax War,” shows, the U.S. military has spent decades preparing for a biological war where the weapon is anthrax. Yet so far, the only anthrax Americans have been exposed to came from our own military’s labs.
And the only harm our troops have had to defend themselves against is the vaccine injuries from squalene-laced BioThrax.
Who came up with BioThrax? None other than a company formerly known as BioPort—since renamed Emergent BioSolutions.
BioPort was formed in 1998 by El-Hibri and partner Adm. William J. Crowe Jr., a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the U.S. Ambassador to Britain for President Clinton.
El-Hibri had previously made anthrax vaccine for the U.K. in an arrangement going back to the privatization of parts of the British biodefense lab Porton Down during the first Gulf War.
In its day, El-Hibri's BioPort was part of the largest private biotechnology firm in the world, Porton International. It got the rights to sell vaccines and other products developed by the U.K. government-run laboratory, the Centre for Applied Microbiology and Research (CAMR), on commercial markets.
In addition to the anthrax vaccine, another well-known CAMR/Porton International product is the anti-wrinkle product botox, made from botulinum toxin. In 1997, Porton International was spun off in a partnership with the defense contractor, DynCorps, which created the DynPort Vaccine Company. A former employee said of El-Hibri’s business:
You have to realize: BioPort and now DynPort, these are arms dealers. They are part absolutely of the military industrial complex. This is their business. They are selling to a captive audience: the Defense Department. That's all-American. All these defense contracts—they are boondoggles—and that's the American way, to make as much money as possible.”
DynPort, a joint venture of DynCorp and Porton International Inc., has a long-standing contract to supply the military with vaccines against biological weapons
One of the most politically-connected yet scandal ridden vaccine companies in the United States, with troubling ties to the 2001 anthrax attacks and opioid crisis, is set to profit handsomely from the current Coronavirus crisis.
BioPort would be then renamed and repackaged as Emergent Biosolutions in 2004. It would then hire even more well-connected lobbyists and add several big names from government and the private sector to its board.
Not only did Emergent Biosolutions profit from national anthrax fears, they would also cash in on subsequent pandemic panics and later receive substantial backing from the Bill Gates-backed Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI). They would then turn their attention to the still-raging opioid addiction and overdose crisis by buying rights to the only drug approved for treating opioid overdoses at the scene while also suing any and all generic producers of this crucial, life-saving treatment.
Given its history, it should come as little surprise that Emergent Biosolutions is now set to profit from the Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis. They are particularly well-suited to make record profits off of Covid-19, as they are backing not one, but two, vaccine candidates as well as an experimental blood plasma treatment already approved for trials in New York state, thanks in part to Jerome Hauer’s old boss, New York governor Andrew Cuomo
the other main companies developing Covid-19 vaccines in the U.S. are strategic partners of the controversial Pentagon research agency DARPA, which has become increasingly aligned with HHS in recent years thanks to another Dark Winter participant, Robert Kadlec.
Emergent BioSolutions in Baltimore is the highest-paid contractor responsible for maintaining the US government's stockpile of emergency medical supplies
