Scotties Toy Box

The Many Things In My Toy Box ….my view may change due to verifiable evidence

The goal of tRump is to enforce his delusion that covid will just disappear and that if we don’t test we won’t have anymore people with the virus.   Deny people the right to the information is another sign of an authoritarian government such as China, Russia, egypt, Turkey and now the US.   Later I will show a video of unnamed federal officers and military people snatching non-violent protests off the streets and putting them in rented minivans.   Next the numbers of unemployment will disappear, this week another 1.3 million jobs lost.    We can not let this happen in the US, yet like so many I do not know what we can do about it.  I am glad to finally see some Republican governors speaking out, but I feel it is too late.    Hugs

COVID Data No Longer Available On CDC Dashboard

CNBC reports:

Previously public data has already disappeared from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website after the Trump administration quietly shifted control of the information to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Since the pandemic began, the CDC regularly published data on availability of hospital beds and intensive care units across the country. But Ryan Panchadsaram, who helps run a data-tracking site called Covid Exit Strategy, said that when he tried to collect the data from the CDC on Tuesday, it had disappeared.

CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield told reporters on a conference call Wednesday that states were told to stop sending hospital information to the National Healthcare Safety Network site, the CDC’s system for gathering data, beginning Wednesday. Instead, all data will now be reported through HHS’ reporting portal.

There is much more at the link above and I think you should glance at it.   One thing being left out of the reporting is this private company that designed and produced this database system for tRump is one of his wealthy supporters who is taking the company public this week, and the knowledge that the company has a multi million dollar contract with the US government is going to help the stock price soar.  Hugs

    This —yet like so many I do not know what we can do about it. — is one of the most frustrating parts of living under the current administration. The Orange Baboon puts forth a line of garbage about the “benefits” of his actions. To those who are paying attention, it’s nothing but an agglomeration of hot air. But therein lies the answer — most people DON’T pay attention. And he knows it.

      Hello Nan. I think it has become worse than your wrote. It use to be tRump would lie, but people could get the facts and truth. Now tRump is tired of being fact checked, tired of people knowing the truth so they are removing any way for reporters and people to know the truth. This is what happens in Iran, China, and all the other authoritarian countries where the government is all powerful and the people are there to serve the state and the higher levels of power. In Portland the federal government are snatching people off the streets to create fear in them and others and released with no charges. That is kidnaping. As for what to do about it, well we know there are people really good at getting into computer systems they are not given access to and maybe they might find the information and release it to the people. We need a lot of information released to the public right now. Hugs

        I hate sounding like a broken record –and while I agree with all that you’ve written– the thing that is the MOST worrisome to me is the people who continue to swallow everything he says and/or does … to the point they threaten his dissenters with GUNS!

        I like your idea about the people “getting into computer systems” to show all that is being hidden, but again … his supporters will call it Fake News … or worse.

        We’re up against a VERY powerful faction, Scottie. Statistics may show them in the lower percentile, but their “movement” has clout.

          Hello Nan. I agree. But the point of the information is not to fight his cult because as you say they wont accept any information that disagrees with their Dear Leader. No the information is for the rest of us and to help us not to get sucked in to the false narrative tRump is trying to force on all of us. Knowledge is power, and right now we need all the information we can get to power up with. Hugs

    Scottie, you may remember a recent Brazil president who went to jail for fudging economic numbers to mask their troubles. I would not put it past Trump to fudge numbers to mask troubles, in this age of fake news he created.

    We must call our Senators and ask them why they rationalize such corrupt and deceitful behavior. The question is no longer can Trump win, it must be he should not win, regardless of what party you are in. He is a clear and present danger to the US and planet. He has already maimed the Republican party.

      Hello Keith. After what he has ordered to happen and clearly enjoys seeing in Portland, yes he is a clear and present danger. But as for the data the congress cannot do anything or those that can won’t. The time for writing Senators is over, our democracy is dying and so are our people. This is China, Egypt, Turkey, Iran, North Korea level stuff. Snatching people off the streets with no charges or rights to intimidate them with no authority to do so except the desire of the president? We need hackers to get the data and flood the media with it. We need people with cell phones to record as much as they can of the deaths and hospital problems and post them, we need medical people to be willing to go on the news and other media to contradict the president and Republican governors. There is no rule of law if this continues Keith. The federal government is not responding to legal requests and courts on this, Senators and Representatives demanding information are unable to get anything. It is now clear that history again repeats, and the congress is being made irrelevant Hugs

          Hello TJ. Here on my Toy Box we do enjoy conversation and discussion. I do not require people to all think the same, but I do ask people commenting to at least think. If you are going to have the fun of commenting here I will ask you to give your ideas on the subject, your reasons for your comment, what facts back up your opinion. Simply saying what you did here is silly and hardly worth the effort it took to type it out. Do try harder OK. Hugs

    You do know that the CDC is a privately run largely Democrat run Company right?
    The federal government has zero say in the final decision that is made for there company and can only make suggestions to policy there.
    If the numbers were taken down my guess is that they don’t support the democrats agenda and not that somehow a Democrat run Company suddenly wants to help the president.
    Do some research and quit spreading fake news.

      Hello TJ’s world. Welcome to my Toy Box, but next time leave your attitude behind as this time you are wrong.

      At first I thought you were just a troll and the jury is still out. However I did look things up. I found the US CDC funded by the US government / congress and an agency of the US government.

      Then I found a CDC Foundation which is a private company / charity. https://www.cdcfoundation.org/our-story So it is possible you have gotten the two confused. To give you the benefit of the doubt.

      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is a national public health institute in the United States. It is a United States federal agency, under the Department of Health and Human Services, and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. Notice it is a US federal agency.

      Now TJ if you have some sort of information that has escaped the members of congress that have been funding this part of the US government or some how the control exerted by the political appointees of tRump, then please enlighten me.

      So now TJ, I will send your own words back at you, “Do some research and quit spreading fake news”.

      Hugs
