Google & Oracle to monitor Americans who get Warp Speed's Covid-19 vaccine for up to TWO years

Google & Oracle to Monitor Americans
Moncef Slaoui, the official head of Operation Warp Speed, told the Wall Street Journal last week that all Warp Speed vaccine recipients in the US will be monitored by "incredibly precise . . . tracking systems" for up to two years and that tech giants Google and Oracle would be involved.

Last week, a rare media interview given by the Trump administration's "Vaccine Czar" offered a brief glimpse into the inner workings of the extremely secretive Operation Warp Speed (OWS), the Trump administration's "public-private partnership" for delivering a Covid-19 vaccine to 300 million Americans by next January. What was revealed should deeply unsettle all Americans.

During an interview with the Wall Street Journal published last Friday, the "captain" of Operation Warp Speed, career Big Pharma executive Moncef Slaoui, confirmed that the millions of Americans who are set to receive the project's Covid-19 vaccine will be monitored via "incredibly precise . . . tracking systems" that will "ensure that patients each get two doses of the same vaccine and to monitor them for adverse health effects." Slaoui also noted that tech giants Google and Oracle have been contracted as part of this "tracking system" but did not specify their exact roles beyond helping to "collect and track vaccine data."

'Not our concern': Moscow has no intention of getting involved in US-Turkey dispute over S-400 deal - UPDATE: Turkey allegedly tests missile system

The Kremlin says it has no intention of interfering in how Turkey and the US work to settle their dispute over Ankara's purchase of Russia's S-400 defense systems. Earlier, Ankara said it's committed to the deal.

"Turkey does not have to notify [Russia about the creation of a working group], this is none of our business," the Russian president's spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, told journalists on Tuesday.

Instead, what Moscow is focused on is "to complete the S-400 deal" with Turkey, "which is currently underway."

Comment: UPDATE 16/10/2020: Though this disputes has faded from the news cycle it is still having reverberations:
The US State Department has warned the Turkish government of "potential serious consequences" to the two nations' security relationship should reports of Ankara testing the Russian S-400 air defense systems prove true.

"If confirmed, we would condemn in the strongest terms the S-400 test missile launch as incompatible with Turkey's responsibilities as a NATO ally and strategic partner of the United States," State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said on Friday.

Ortagus insisted that the air defense system "should not be operationalized," adding, "We have also been clear on the potential serious consequences for our security relationship if Turkey activates the system."

Washington's reaction comes after a Reuters report showed "a narrow column of smoke headed high into the blue sky" near the city of Sinop in northern Turkey. According to the outlet's defense analyst Turan Oguz, the smoke pattern suggested it was a missile launch of the Russian-made S-400.

The Turkish defense ministry said it would neither confirm nor deny any missile tests. Ankara has previously said it intended to make the S-400s it had purchased from Moscow fully operation by the end of 2020.

Turkey has already received a lot of backlash from the US over its procurement of the air defense system. Following the delivery of the first four missile batteries from Russia in August 2019, Washington suspended Turkey from the F-35 fighter-jet program, and has threatened further sanctions.

US authorities harass RT reporter for hours at airport, question his Covid-19 vaccine shot

Russian journalists are facing prejudice and routine harassment by American authorities, Russia's embassy in Washington has warned, after US security services questioned an RT filmmaker for hours and combed through his devices.

RT documentary director Konstantin Rozhkov was stopped by US federal agents at a New York airport soon after arriving in the country on Wednesday, where he was subjected to a three-hour interrogation and forced to provide access to his electronics. Konstantin was subjected to the sort of treatment Washington would be up in arms about, if it was meted out to an American media worker in a foreign country.

"The journalist was requested to open all electronic media, as well as explain publicly available information, including about him receiving the Russian-made [Covid-19] vaccine, Sputnik V," the embassy said in a statement, adding that Rozhkov was also questioned about his "correspondence related to journalistic activities."

Joe Biden says 8 year olds are capable of choosing to be transgender

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden suggested that children as young as eight-years-old should be allowed to change their gender identity if they decide they "want to be transgender."

The comment came on Thursday night at an election town hall hosted by ABC News, where a woman who said one of her two daughters is transgender asked Biden what he would do to protect LGBTQ rights. The former vice president said, "I will flat out just change the law." He then told a story about seeing two gay men kissing each other and being told by his father, "Joey, it's simple, they love each other."

Biden next turned to the topic of child transgenderism: "The idea that an eight-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides, 'You know, I decided I want to be transgender, that's what I think I'd like to be, it'd make my life a lot easier,' there should be zero discrimination." He later added, "There is no reason to suggest that there should be any right denied your daughter... that your other daughter has a right to be and do."

Comment: Let it stand that Joe Biden has explicitly stated that he supports ideology that promotes and facilitates the psychological harm and potential mutilation of children:


Feds investigating if alleged Hunter Biden emails connected to foreign intelligence operation: report

Hunter and Joe caught red-handed?
Federal authorities are investigating if emails allegedly discovered on a laptop at a Delaware repair shop discussing Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden's activities in Ukraine were connected to a foreign intelligence operation, NBC News reported Thursday night.

Two people familiar with the matter told the network about the federal investigation.

The FBI took the laptop and a hard drive through a grand jury subpoena that was later published by the New York Post, a conservative newspaper. The FBI declined to comment to The Hill on the reported probe, citing its standard practice of not confirming or denying an investigation.

Comment: The fallout continues with House Republicans asking the FBI if it had Hunter Biden's alleged laptop during Trump's impeachment
"If the FBI was, in fact, in possession of this evidence and failed to alert the White House to its existence that would have given even more weight to the president's legal defense, this was a gross error in judgement and a severe violation of trust," the letter says.

The Post reported that the FBI was in possession of the laptop on which the emails were found in December 2019 -- right in the middle of the impeachment of President Trump over remarks he made to the Ukrainian president about Biden's conduct in the country.

Trump was impeached by the Democratic-controlled House but later acquitted by the Republican-controlled Senate.

"A large portion of the president's legal defense case revolved around strong evidence that former Vice President Biden's son Hunter was peddling his influence to his father to land lucrative jobs overseas that he might not have otherwise been qualified for," the letter says.

The lawmakers ask whether the FBI was in possession of the laptop and drive as documented in the Post, whether it took steps to authenticate the drive and the data, and if anyone at the FBI briefed officials at the Department of Justice or White House after December.
Meanwhile, matters have taken a darker turn. The Gateway Pundit reports the possibility Hunter's laptop is being investigated by an FBI agent known to specialize in child porn cases:
One image included in the New York Post photos was the FBI's subpoena for the laptop.

Bleeding through the top page was the FBI Special Agent's signature: Joshua Wilson. As Western Journal describes it, Joshua Wilson works a specific kind of crime: child porn.

From Business Insider:
It's unclear whether the FBI employs more than one agent named Joshua Wilson. But the available evidence seems to show **the Joshua Wilson who signed the subpoena for Hunter Biden's laptop, and the Joshua Wilson who investigates child pornography for the FBI, are the same person**. This raises the possibility, not explored by the Post, that the FBI issued the subpoena for reasons unrelated to Hunter Biden's role in Ukraine and Burisma.

The shop owner has told several news outlets that he did not *see* any child pornography on the hard drive. But those news outlets also confirm that the shop owner has severe vision problems. Some commenters have described him as "legally blind."

Suppose the FBI's child pornography and exploitation division is investigating the laptop. In that case, we begin to see possible answers to the two burning questions: Why did Hunter Biden agree to share his income with his wealthy father, and why has the FBI failed to act on the laptop's contents.
We know that Hunter Biden exploited his father's position as Vice President to win ridiculously lucrative jobs with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, several Chinese companies and officials, and a $3.5 million gift from the wife of Moscow's mayor.

We have learned from the New York Post story that Hunter seems to have arranged a meeting between a Burisma executive and Joe Biden in 2015.

We know that Joe Biden got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired in exchange for a $1 billion gift to the Ukrainian government.

We just learned that Joe Biden demanded at least half of his son's vast income and that Hunter Biden complied with his father's demands.

And now we know the FBI sent its child porn expert to seize Hunter Biden's laptop.

The Bidens: Joe, James and Hunter
The day the Bidens took over Paradigm Global Advisors was a memorable one.

In the late summer of 2006 Joe Biden's son Hunter and Joe's younger brother, James, purchased the firm. On their first day on the job, they showed up with Joe's other son, Beau, and two large men and ordered the hedge fund's chief of compliance to fire its president, according to a Paradigm executive who was present.

After the firing, the two large men escorted the fund's president out of the firm's midtown Manhattan office, and James Biden laid out his vision for the fund's future. "Don't worry about investors," he said, according to the executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing fear of retaliation. "We've got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden."

At the time, the senator was just months away from both assuming the chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and launching his second presidential bid. According to the executive, James Biden made it clear he viewed the fund as a way to take money from rich foreigners who could not legally give money to his older brother or his campaign account. "We've got investors lined up in a line of 747s filled with cash ready to invest in this company," the executive remembers James Biden saying.

Comment: Cashing in on influence is a rare deal - especially if it leads all the way to the top of the governmental hierarchy. Regarding the Bidens, this advantage was continuously exercised and exploited but never well played.

Trump wants Giuliani and Jay Sekulow spearheading post-election legal battle

President Donald Trump • Jay Sekulow • Rudy Giuliani
At the top of President Trump's list to head a legal battle in the event of a contested election are two staunch allies: Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, a conservative media personality and lead attorney in the president's Senate impeachment trial defense.

"I want Jay and Rudy on this," Trump said in a private conversation this summer, a source told the Daily Beast.

The potentially historic legal battle over the results of the 2020 election could go on for weeks, warned an attorney who served as co-counsel for George W. Bush and Dick Cheney's presidential ticket in the Florida recount of 2000.

Giuliani has repeatedly cast doubt on the integrity of the U.S. electoral system, including before Trump's 2016 victory. Weeks before the president was elected, former New York City Mayor Giuliani claimed that "dead people usually vote for Democrats" and called the vote "rigged."


RNC files FEC complaint over Twitter's 'in-kind' contribution to the Biden campaign

Presidential Candidate Joe Biden • Hunter Biden
The Republican National Committee (RNC) has filed a complaint against Twitter with the Federal Elections Committee (FEC) after the social media company censored two New York Post reports damaging to the Biden campaign. The RNC claims the censorship amounted to an "in-kind" political contribution to the Biden campaign in violation of campaign finance law.

Fox News reports the RNC complaint alleges that Twitter's censorship of the New York Post's reporting on Hunter Biden's overseas business dealings and Joe Biden's alleged knowledge of those dealings amounted to an "illegal corporate in-kind political contribution" to the Biden presidential campaign.

The complaint cites Federal campaign finance law that prohibits corporations from making contributions to federal candidates. A contribution, the complaint defines, as "'anything of value made by any person for the purpose of influencing an election,' and includes in-kind contributions such as services." The complaint, obtained by Fox News, reads:
"Respondent's suppression of the New York Post articles provides a thing of value to the Biden campaign. Respondent is acting as Biden's media operative, taking proactive steps to shield Biden from negative news coverage by blocking its distribution and muzzling those who try. If Respondent charged for this service, Biden no doubt would gladly pay a significant price."

Washington's 'no' to Putin's proposal of a New START extension is a political victory for Moscow

Putin intervened to state clearly and directly that a one-year extension of the New START treaty was the only option. The White House declined, setting the stage for a new arms race should Trump win in November.

Less than a week after US-Russian talks on the future of the New START treaty collapsed - amid recriminations from both sides stemming from a misunderstanding, whether deliberate or otherwise, regarding Moscow's position - President Vladimir Putin intervened in a high-profile bid to inject both clarity and a sense of urgency about the future viability of the last remaining arms control agreement between Russia and the US.

In a live, public broadcast of a video conference between Putin and the Security Council of the Russian Federation, the president issued instructions that left no doubt as to either his intent, or that of his diplomats, when it comes to New START. After noting that it had "worked properly" during its history in "performing its fundamental role as a constraint curtailing the arms race and a tool of arms control," Putin instructed Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov that the Russian position was
"...to extend the Treaty now in effect unconditionally for at least a year in order to have a chance to hold substantive talks on all the parameters of problems that are regulated by treaties of this kind, lest we leave our countries and all nations of the world with a vested interest in maintaining strategic stability without such a fundamental document as the Strategic Offensive Arms Limitation Treaty (i.e., New START.)"
and instructed him to
"...formulate our position to the US partners and try to obtain at least some comprehensible reply from them as soon as possible."

Comment: Keep in mind also that not only does Trump just love to renegotiate deals that make him look like he's getting the best deal, but has to continue the pretense of being "tough on Russia!" - because of the way that Washington and the media have portrayed his relationship to Putin.
