1/This is biggest story of our century and no one but ⁦@StefSimanowitz⁩ is reporting it....Palantir, other creepy tech giants, got contract to manage COVID data in UK and built a genomics ‘COVID data store’ to monetize your biotech data...’lockdowns’, mass tests, tracing..
2/..may have med benefit but speaking as CEO of a data tech company, I tell your the data extruded from you while you are on ‘lockdown’, tested and traced, is unbelievably valuable. Your working from home data is valuable, your kids being isolated online data are valuable, it’s..
3/..a hack. Big tech companies with friends in govt (and perhaps in alignment w a non Allied superpower) have used med crisis to hack society and drive it all online via ‘lockdowns’. The data they are mining is so vastly valuable. Killing the last ‘analog’ spaces..bookstores, ..
4/ town halls, schools, bars, restaurants, protest, and driving all that activity that used to take place in non digital spaces, online, is hugely valuable. ‘Contact tracing’ which was rightly rejected as a civil rights violation during the height of the HIV epidemic...creates...
5/ hugely valuable networks of relationship maps that typically only licensed private investigators and law enforcement have access to, worth about $1200 a month per customer to even see these networks. By ‘contact tracing’ allegedly for med purposes...
6/ ..tech companies handling COVID data, Google, Palantir, Microsoft, Amazon, get to keep those ‘network’ maps long after crisis is over and well them again and again; govt can use them for surveying dissent. Google also has the test results from Rite Aid in US. With ‘contact...
7/ tracing’ Google, Microsoft can create a two tiered system violating medical privacy in which those who take vaccine or those allegedly infected can be separated out of school, work and made second class citizens, you can’t independently verify this status. With Steve Ballmer’s
8/ @USAFaxts ‘producing’ unverifiable COVID data, NHS, HHS data run by Big Tech, Big Tech has a closed system in which Google, Palantir, Microsoft and Amazon can decide what happens to every economy, every citizen, and make profit on sending people indoors, breaking human bond...
9/ ..bonds, rather, forever.

‘Neither Oxford not its ..partner Astra Zeneca would release the data’ from vaccine tests it is claiming are successful. Why is NO COVID related data available transparently for scrutiny? Why not let journalists, other scientists see datasets as is norm? theguardian.com/world/2020/oct…
2/Why do I keep hammering that no COVID related platform releases datasets? Because I run a small tech company that sells data. And I know that data platforms can slice and dice and tag the data on the backend to tell any story on the front end, they want. Why I keep demanding...
3/ that reporters such a @apoorva_nyc and others (not to single you out @apoorva_nyc) MUST educate themselves about the backend of these data platforms such as @COVID19Tracking and @JHS that they are all citing, respectfully, totally blindly. Just because there’s a map based on..

To be clear: I’m not ‘anti-vax’. That said, I had flu shot for 1st time, at CVS. Had to ask for 4 layers of documentation before learning that dog kidney cells, latex, Singapore H1N1 are in shot, and that CDC has only vague assurances re dog cells studies. cdc.gov/flu/prevent/ce…
2/ Also learned: 1st doc I was asked to sign did away w/my medical privacy under HIPAA law: lets CVS send my personally identifying data to ‘agencies’ and ‘schools’. Also something called CAIR gets to release it, which pharmacist could not identify. CVS like Rite Aid sells data.
3/ I was asked to pay and sign before seeing prescription label. Label only said ‘flu vaccine’, not ingredients. Only when I asked for ingredients was I given box w actual label which you are supposed to get by law. It listed dog cells, latex, H1N1 virus from Singapore in shot.

"Manufactured claims of incompetence and malfeasance [...] have emerged as the [climate][ denialist weapon of choice." @MichaelEMann, The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars. Describes how fake/ hyped "scandal" re scholarship is fed to allies who write blogs in online echo chamber.
2/Strategy includes abuse of FOIA, to burden scientists with intrusive demands for records, impeding their research. @MichaelEMann, The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars
3/Climate denialist McIntyre demanded via FOIA all email correspondence between a well-known climate scientist Ben Santer and his coauthors. Intrusive and intimidating.

4/Which is how the right wing manages to silence dissent of impactful influencers by challenging their preferred outcomes. Military calls this "tenderizing" a target, leaving one so occupied with putting out reputational fires that one can't advance one's own powerful agendas.
5/Another issue: targets such as scientists, scholars, often play by civilized rules, calling biased editors "unusual" or sticking to pointing out flaws in methodologies. But echo chamber uses lies, personal attacks, reputational smears, catchy namecalling; blindsiding civility.
6/Loc 2576 of The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars should chill your soul: @MichelEMann explains how pressures from fossil fuel, pharmaceuticals, tobacco etc corrupt peer review. Peer review's importance he notes cannot be overstated; a last bastion of actual truth not spin.

1/ Fossil-fuel allied scientists write letter to Pres of UVA, where @MichaelMann was teaching, complaining re his Senate testimony. Many influencers now endure calls to publishers, employers, university heads when we bring out messages that contradict right wing agendas.Loc 2559,
2/The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars, @MichaelEMann. Literally everyone should read this book. Searing indictment of how climate change scientists are harassed, targeted, silenced by "vast right wing conspiracy" of echo chamber talking heads, special interests, fake news sites
3/ So @MichaelEMann, who is only identifying evidence that can lead to policies that allow us to sustain life on earth, has to take time from his research and peer reviewed publications to RESPOND to a letter from fossil fuel allied scientists to the then-pres of his university.

THIS is the bad data going into COVID totals: Oregon Health Authority includes in the "TOTAL" of "CASES", with a footnote, "presumed" cases of people presenting with "COVID-like symptoms" such as :cough, fever." SO ALL OREGON FEVERS ARE COUNTED AS "COVID." govstatus.egov.com/OR-OHA-COVID-19
2/ I am not advocating for higher or lower counts, only ACCURATE ones. Including ALL patients with cough or fever AND ALL THEIR CONTACTS, as Oregon Health Authority does, as "COVID", means that it is impossible to know whether or not to visit Oregon, how to advise loved ones.
3/ Read mindblowing fine print for Oregon COVID data: *
"Includes cases confirmed by diagnostic testing... presumptive cases. Presumptive cases are people without a positive diagnostic test who have COVID-19-like symptoms and had close contact with a laboratory confirmed case..
