Coronavirus data has already disappeared after Trump administration shifted control from CDC

It does mention that the Johns Hopkins info will still be available
(until Trump figures out a way to get rid of that).

It's too much info to post here,
but if you want to see the depth
of insidious bullshit associated
with the private healthcare firm
TeleTracking, you might want to
do some searches. Think of how
much improvement of the CDC
there could've been with $10.2 million.
Here are three links to start - followed
by a pull quote from one of them:

https://tinyurl.com/y8cvzgvs

Quote:
In April, the government awarded a $10.2 million contract to a TeleTracking Technologies, based in Pittsburgh. At the time, the company was hired to gather data on things that were already being reported to the CDC, such as available hospital beds.

TeleTracking has won 29 contracts for federal government work stretching back to 2004. None of its previous contracts paid more than $300,000. The prior contracts were for computer systems and programming at Veteran Affairs hospitals.

The company has also gotten approval to tap a government loans program designed to help small business keep employees on their payroll during the pandemic. The forgivable loan was from the Payroll Protection Program for between $5 million and $10 million. TeleTracking indicated it planned to use the loan to help save the jobs of some of its 376 workers.

TeleTracking did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The CEO of Teletracking, Michael Zamagias, also runs a real estate investment firm with several properties in Pittsburgh. One of his companies, Michael G. Zamagias Interests LTD, was approved for a Payroll Protection Program loan for between $150,000 and $350,000.

Just even people supposedly on the left saying that’s taking things too far.

How can I say it and not be censored? Trump and his entire family deserve things usually associated with the Middle Ages.

I heard Oliver Thorn from Philosophy Tube say this on a podcast about British politics and I think it's totally true in America. People don't like to hear that politics is life and death. People like to treat it as a casual hobby and therefore being mean about it is uncalled for. Even if the president isn't doing the best job about the pandemic that isn't any reason to incite meanness over it. It's not like the status quo we all love and worship so much could ever be so perverted that our elected leaders could literally be choosing to let us die for their own personal benefit after all. No, it's all just differences of opinion and that's that.
