Experimental Assessment of Carbon Dioxide Content in Inhaled Air With or Without Face Masks in Healthy ChildrenA Randomized Clinical Trial

Posted by M. C. on July 2, 2021

This leads in turn to impairments attributable to hypercapnia. A recent review6 concluded that there was ample evidence for adverse effects of wearing such masks. We suggest that decision-makers weigh the hard evidence produced by these experimental measurements accordingly, which suggest that children should not be forced to wear face masks.

What about the rest of US?

Many governments have made nose and mouth covering or face masks compulsory for schoolchildren. The evidence base for this is weak.1,2 The question whether nose and mouth covering increases carbon dioxide in inhaled air is crucial. A large-scale survey3 in Germany of adverse effects in parents and children using data of 25 930 children has shown that 68% of the participating children had problems when wearing nose and mouth coverings.

The normal content of carbon dioxide in the open is about 0.04% by volume (ie, 400 ppm). A level of 0.2% by volume or 2000 ppm is the limit for closed rooms according to the German Federal Environmental Office, and everything beyond this level is unacceptable.4

A Group Of Parents Sent Their Kids' Face Masks to A Lab for Analysis. Here's What They Found

Source: AP Photo/Mary Altaffer, File

We’ve been told for well over a year that widespread forced public masking should be implemented because, even if only moderately to slightly to negligibly effective at curbing the spread of COVID-19, there are ZERO drawbacks. 

“What’s the harm?” they ask.

“It’s only a minor inconvenience,” they bleat.

“If it saves ONE LIFE, it’s worth it!” they implore.

Meanwhile, we on Team Reality have not only continued to point to real-world data that shows masking to be entirely ineffective, we’ve also maintained that forced public masking, especially long-term, has negative societal and even health ramifications that the powers-that-be are all-too-happy to ignore in subservience to their newfound face mask god. 

It only stands to reason that one of those health ramifications would be the fact that millions of people, particularly children, have been forced to wear and carry around pieces of cloth they’ve continually breathed through for hours on end. What lurking pathogens might be found on these disgusting contraptions being incessantly handled, stuck in pockets, and mindlessly tossed on books, tables, and desks? Well, one group of Florida parents sent a batch of masks worn by their children to a lab to find out. And yeah, you’ll probably need to make sure you aren’t eating dinner anytime soon before you digest THESE results. 

Via press release:

Gainesville, FL (June 16, 2021) – A group of parents in Gainesville, FL, concerned about potential harms from masks, submitted six face masks to a lab for analysis. The resulting report found that five masks were contaminated with bacteria, parasites, and fungi, including three with dangerous pathogenic and pneumonia-causing bacteria. No viruses were detected on the masks, although the test is capable of detecting viruses.

The analysis detected the following 11 alarmingly dangerous pathogens on the masks:

• Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumonia) 

• Mycobacterium tuberculosis (tuberculosis) 

• Neisseria meningitidis (meningitis, sepsis) 

• Acanthamoeba polyphaga (keratitis and granulomatous amebic encephalitis) 

• Acinetobacter baumanni (pneumonia, blood stream infections, meningitis, UTIs— resistant to antibiotics) 

• Escherichia coli (food poisoning)

• Borrelia burgdorferi (causes Lyme disease)

• Corynebacterium diphtheriae (diphtheria)

• Legionella pneumophila (Legionnaires’ disease) 

• Staphylococcus pyogenes serotype M3 (severe infections—high morbidity rates) 

• Staphylococcus aureus (meningitis, sepsis)

Half of the masks were contaminated with one or more strains of pneumonia-causing bacteria. One-third were contaminated with one or more strains of meningitis-causing bacteria. One-third were contaminated with dangerous, antibiotic-resistant bacterial pathogens. In addition, less dangerous pathogens were identified, including pathogens that can cause fever, ulcers, acne, yeast infections, strep throat, periodontal disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and more.

The face masks studied were new or freshly-laundered before wearing and had been worn for 5 to 8 hours, most during in-person schooling by children aged 6 through 11. One was worn by an adult. A t-shirt worn by one of the children at school and unworn masks were tested as controls. No pathogens were found on the controls. Proteins found on the t-shirt, for example, are not pathogenic to humans and are commonly found in hair, skin, and soil.

A parent who participated in the study, Ms. Amanda Donoho, commented that this small sample points to a need for more research: “We need to know what we are putting on the faces of our children each day. Masks provide a warm, moist environment for bacteria to grow.”

These local parents contracted with the lab because they were concerned about the potential of contaminants on masks that their children were forced to wear all day at school, taking them on and off, setting them on various surfaces, wearing them in the bathroom, etc. This prompted them to send the masks to the University of Florida’s Mass Spectrometry Research and Education Center for analysis.

The below chart, put together by the group of parents, shows the potential dangers from each pathogen:

Appetizing, eh? Of course, nothing above, or anything else, will deter the extremists in the masking cult, some of whom now want to see masking in schools forever.

CDC Churches Bow CDC Churches Genuflect to the Government – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on May 26, 2021

What is disgraceful and shameful about these CDC churches relaxing their Covid restrictions is that it is in response to CDC guidelines and government pronouncements. These churches will always be CDC churches even when they return to normalcy. When Covid-23 is pronounced a pandemic, these churches can be counted on to limit their capacity, shut off their water fountains, require face masks, block off every other pew, enforce social distancing, and cancel all activities aside from their Sunday morning service—if they don’t close altogether.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/05/laurence-m-vance/cdc-churches-genuflect-to-the-government/

By Laurence M. Vance

More and more churches have begun returning their services to normal since the CDC updated its public health recommendations. While the return to normalcy is a good thing, it is also a bad thing in one respect.

In an effort to further push the dangerous and unnecessary Covid-19 vaccine on Americans, the CDC updated its public health recommendations on May 13.

According to the CDC, the guiding principles for fully vaccinated people are:

  • Indoor and outdoor activities pose minimal risk to fully vaccinated people.
  • Fully vaccinated people have a reduced risk of transmitting SARS-CoV-2 to unvaccinated people.
  • Fully vaccinated people should still get tested if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms
  • Fully vaccinated people should not visit private or public settings if they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the prior 10 days or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Fully vaccinated people should continue to follow any applicable federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations.

Accordingly, in a non-healthcare setting, fully vaccinated people can:

  • Resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance
  • Resume domestic travel and refrain from testing before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel
  • Refrain from testing before leaving the United States for international travel (unless required by the destination) and refrain from self-quarantine after arriving back in the United States
  • Refrain from testing following a known exposure, if asymptomatic, with some exceptions for specific settings
  • Refrain from quarantine following a known exposure if asymptomatic
  • Refrain from routine screening testing if feasible

CDC churches have taken notice.

Last year, in the middle of the bogus “pandemic,” I coined the term CDC churches to describe those churches that altered their practices because of government propaganda and decrees. At the time I wrote about this (July 14), some churches—especially liberal churches—were still closed, but most had reopened with greatly limited and altered services. Some heroic churches either never completely closed or else fully reopened with no restrictions after a month or so of online-only services after they realized what a giant government scam the whole “pandemic” was.

These CDC churches encouraged or required face masks, closed off some of their pews, stopped all congregational singing, made people register for services, took people’s temperature, outlawed handshaking and hugging, turned off their water fountains, mandated social distancing, quit passing offering plates, and cancelled potluck dinners, baptisms, nurseries, choirs, Sunday schools, Bible studies, prayer meetings, and communion services.

All for absolutely nothing. It was all theatre.

As the year progressed, and some states and localities began to relax their draconian Covid restrictions, many CDC churches began to follow suit, but always in lockstep with the government. After the government began pushing the Covid vaccine, many CDC churches jumped on the government bandwagon. The biggest promoter of Covid vaccines in Texas was a megachurch, First Baptist of Church of Dallas.

And now that the CDC has said that no one needs to wear a mask outside, and that vaccinated individuals don’t have to wear a mask inside, CDC churches around the country have begun to relax most of their remaining Covid restrictions—restrictions that they never should have made to begin with. They have turned on water fountains, reconstituted their choirs, opened up all of the pews, stopped recommending face masks, started passing offering plates, and stopped promoting social distancing.

I know this is happening because I get e-mails on a regular basis from Christians all over the country about what is going on in their churches.

What is disgraceful and shameful about these CDC churches relaxing their Covid restrictions is that it is in response to CDC guidelines and government pronouncements. These churches will always be CDC churches even when they return to normalcy. When Covid-23 is pronounced a pandemic, these churches can be counted on to limit their capacity, shut off their water fountains, require face masks, block off every other pew, enforce social distancing, and cancel all activities aside from their Sunday morning service—if they don’t close altogether.

We Will Dig Down to the Root of This Thing That Ravages This Land and Pluck It Out – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on February 20, 2021

Public enemy number one was impeached on his last week of office — a citizen politician who thought he could lead a populist revolt in DC. Spoiler Alert: he did, only it didn’t start on January 6, 2021, but June 16, 2015 when we began to see what was possible. It was never about him.  It was about me. About you. About us. It was about us seeing what was possible. And that’s truly scary to them.

Public enemy number two is a citizen journalist imprisoned for showing how criminal our “trusted” sources were. He rots in Belmarsh Prison. Long live Julian Assange!

They can only hope that they can stem the tide there. By putting a few people in prison.

By Allan Stevo

It starts with the face masks.

It starts with one set of lockdown rules for us, another for them.

It starts with one set of election rules for us another for them

It starts with one set of investment rules for us, another for them

In December 2007, a doctor from Lake Jackson, Texas found himself bolstered by a movement he didn’t really know existed.

Because he ran for the highest office that cycle and spoke truthfully, unceasingly, American politics was never the same again.

Fast-forward three years to the Tea Party. Those running to be congressmen and senators galvanized that movement, and then it shattered into pieces, distracted pieces.

Fast-forward five years to the Trump candidacy. Renewed focus was given to that movement.

We stand here, with a genie that won’t be put back in the bottle, has no concept of how powerful it is, and has no leader.

Heck. It doesn’t need a leader. That’s the nature of libertarian and conservative politics. It has people as aggressive and dedicated as honey badgers, each doing their own thing. Step by step amazing things get done.

It’s not the most organized. But that’s an advantage for many reasons. One advantage is: There’s no snake to chop the head off of. That energy turns into a whackamole game for the establishment. Not only can they not stem the tide, they can’t even make sense of the randomness of it all.

They can’t see how Game Stop and the new American homeschooling revival and vaccine hesitancy — culture-wide unlike anything seen for decades — and Elon Musk and yes even, to a degree, the popularity of AOC are all part of the same thing. It’s not random. The American people are done being ruled by you. As we speak, dear establishment drone, you are overplaying your hand. And you are the only person at the table who can’t see that.

From Andrew Ross Sorkin commenting on how buying Game Stop stock is an “attack” on the company, to Gavin Newsom whining about people not following lockdown orders, the common denominator of the figureheads is a tone of whininess unlike anything ever seen from them. It’s become so normal that they even chose a whiner to be the fake Vice President in their sham election charade.

And the more they all whine, the more happily the recall signatures pile up for the California Governor who desires to be President of the United States, who desires to devastate his country the way he devastated his state. It wasn’t the Chinese Communist Party who destroyed California. It wasn’t Beijing that destroyed Main Street America. It was the American communists and the corona communism they placed upon us when they closed our businesses, closed our churches, and declared our lives unessential and illegal.

We need to remove these voices from their positions of any authority in our lives by tuning them out and raising up better to replace them.

But that’s the surface. Those are symptoms.

The slaves are rising up. They won’t take your vaccine. They won’t take your mask. They won’t stay inside.

Those battles are being won. Others are ahead of us.

Will the slaves take your false flag attacks?

Will the slaves take your massive deep state?

Will the slaves take your slave money?

We’ve had a comfortable two decades since 9/11 leaving government in control. We need to get back to our roots and remind ourselves that government is never to be left in control: least of all in a crisis.

Because then all they have to do is call a crisis to regain control. If we can move beyond that then we are home free.

Daily, people are moving beyond that. Daily, people are coming to realize 2020 is not what they said it was. 9/11 is not what they said it was. JFK was not what they said it was. If they will lie about that, what else will they lie about? 

A lot.

Public enemy number one was impeached on his last week of office — a citizen politician who thought he could lead a populist revolt in DC. Spoiler Alert: he did, only it didn’t start on January 6, 2021, but June 16, 2015 when we began to see what was possible. It was never about him.  It was about me. About you. About us. It was about us seeing what was possible. And that’s truly scary to them.

Public enemy number two is a citizen journalist imprisoned for showing how criminal our “trusted” sources were. He rots in Belmarsh Prison. Long live Julian Assange!

They can only hope that they can stem the tide there. By putting a few people in prison.

They can’t. Dr. Simone Gold was arrested for being at the Capitol January 6. Brandon Straka was arrested for being at the Capitol January 6. Baked Alaska was arrested for being at the Capitol January 6. These are plantation Democrats who are done supporting the insiders of either party.

The now deceased Rush Limbaugh, as he prepared to look his maker in the eye, was practically the only voice in the media who recognized what was happening January 6 and did not apologize.

And it’s not about party. Trump is a third party coup of the establishment uniparty. He is Ron Paul 2020, Pat Buchanan 2020, Ross Perot 2020, Pat Robertson 2020, Aaron Russo 2020, Irwin Schiff 2020, what the Libertarian Party might have been under Murray Rothbard’s leadership instead of enfeebling distraction 2020, Larry McDonnell 2020, my aunt 2020, my cousin 2020, my daughter 2020. The American dinner table 2020. American entrepreneurs 2020, Working class Hispanics who live along the southern border 2020, every European who doesn’t trust Brussels 2020, Baltimore, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Chicago is in pain 2020, traditional Catholics 2020, free speech 2020, Howard Beale 2020, the church that didn’t close down 2020, the four years of babies who lived because of the Mexico City Policy 2020, Fill in the blank 2020, the end of Lincoln Project pedophiles 2020, Dick Cheney is a war criminal 2020, and so is Madeline Albright a war criminal 2020, Ruby Ridge, Bundy Ranch, Waco, Texas 2020, American energy independence 2020, American energy 2020, American chutzpah 2020, American vigor 2020, American potency 2020. You can shove your cultural Marxism back into your closed down and triple face masked sociology department cuz you ain’t controlling my speech with your guilt riddled and bullying political correctness 2020.

Once loyal democrats stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Can they possibly realize what a mess they have on their hands? This uniparty.

It will be a badge of courage to stand trial, a rallying cry for hundreds and thousands who support each of them.

It’s emblematic of their disconnection that they think arrests like these matter. It’s emblematic of their disconnection that they think deplatforming like this matters. We aren’t a machine to be controlled by the proper dials. We aren’t a thing. We aren’t an object. We aren’t a hydra. We aren’t a many headed beast. We are 300 million individuals. You are the 30 million strong political class, if I am to be generous in the estimate of those who believe the American political class operates in their best interest.

You cut down a general, you silence a voice, you make an example of another. These are trifling efforts. The energy will come out of somewhere. And with every attempt of yours to contain the energy, you only embolden us further.

The Great Awakening is here. The Second American Revolution is here.

Make no mistake, I do not advocate for a kinetic war.

Murray Rothbard in his four volume collection on the Revolutionary War period, Conceived in Liberty, (https://mises.org/library/conceived-liberty-2) writes of a people who from the early 1760s to the mid 1770s had undergone a revolution of mind and spirit. This was the true revolution. What followed was a bloody rebellion in response to a ruling class in denial that they had lost control of the minds of the people and who were obstinate to maintain a semblance of control.

“Perception is reality,” King George said to himself as the first shot rang across Lexington.

“Perception is reality,” the greatest military on earth assured themselves as they chased a bunch of shoeless hillbillies across the frozen Christmas terrain of New York.

“Perception is reality,” they claimed to themselves to their dying day, those who could never understand how such pitiful and lowly creatures as common humans could ever defeat a group so certain of their own superiority in oppressing another.

Perception is not reality. Reality is reality.

Such blinding hubris comes from being the establishment class of the greatest empire on the planet. The British Parliament and the old blind King George could barely see far enough to glimpse that of themselves in the mirror. And the ruling class of the greatest empire on earth today lacks that same vision. How reliably pride precedes the fall.

The Second American Revolution is here. Does a bloody rebellion also take place? That all depends on how willing the masters are to acknowledge that they aren’t masters any more and to voluntarily be rooted out of our lives.

We don’t need them.

We don’t want them.

They have to go.

Hopefully, it’s all very peaceful.

But boy, do they seem dedicated to living in such a state of denial that history will look back upon as the great folly that so powerfully brought the once powerful to their knees.

How good it feels to win. How good it feels to see their outrage. How good it feels to see their grasp on power slip. How good it feels to hear their whining. It feels wonderful to see their moral turpitude on full display. I’m not outraged at their hubris either. I’m elated. They can’t hide it anymore the way they once were able to.

Here’s how burdened and stressed their system is: The slightest out of the ordinary behavior by a citizen activist today generates such immediate response from those in office. There has never been a more wonderful time than now to be an activist. Every unpredictable act reveals how entirely out of touch and out of control they really are. Use the FOIA uncomfortably, hang posters uncomfortably, make the phones ring uncomfortably, post a website uncomfortably — such as the wonderful “Brad Little Is A Disgrace”. Their slightest discomfort is brilliant to watch. If you aren’t already being as active as you can be, you are missing out on the fun.

And by that I mean, if you are spending even one hour a week on Netflix, instead of ending mask mandates today by sitting down  at your local “masks mandatory” store, hosting mask burning events, FOIAing everything from your local officials, and getting together with your fellow slaves through groups such as PeoplesRights and WAPF you are just missing out on the real fun of this moment.

But it doesn’t stop there. Not only are they a bunch of fainting violets on high alert and totally unable to make sense of what is happening around them, they are just revealing their total moral turpitude and what a sham it all is.

The economy was decimated based on lies. Life-saving medicine was denied based on lies. Communities, families, and institutions were devastated based on lies. A puttering, unpopular, controlled, old man is shuffling around the Oval Office based on lies. The stock markets were closed down based on lies. People were pulled off of social media based on lies. The US capital was turned into an occupied green zone based on lies. This list is endless.

2020 was the year corona communism came to the United States. It was also the year that the American political class guaranteed their total removal from American politics.

This isn’t a ruling class. This is a bunch of weeds with very deep roots.

We just have to be sure to get down to those deep, deep roots.

How violent will that process be? That’s up to them. We come in peace, but if they are the dummies who can’t count how vastly outnumbered they are, then they are in for a rude awakening.

Because 300 million pissed off people aren’t gonna be led by you anymore, and all of your whining shows how intimately you know that.

American political class, welcome to the begginning of your end. Step aside like generations of your fellow communists did around the world, and we’ll make this easy for you. Persevere, and you will feel a pain you never imagining possible in a civilized land.

You’re winning. We’re winning. Now act like it. Stop obeying their lockdowns. Stop humoring their mask mandates. Disobey their every psychologically obstructive request. If you don’t know how do that then read Allan Stevo’s best selling “Face Masks in One Lesson” it’s a “how to” guide on never wearing the mask again, but more importantly a book that will passionately inspire courage, leadership, and liberty. Read his Lew Rockwell writing, sign up at RealStevo.com, or write him. But you don’t need any of that. Just be real with yourself. All you need is to resolve to live life by a higher standard and that starts by never wearing that mask again.

Face Masks and Freedom: Beware of Skepticism as a Tool of Inaction. – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on January 16, 2021

Being different is not enough. Seeking truth is the goal, and marshalling your resources accordingly is the necessity. Far from that goal, the contrarian may even be left with a spirit opposed to cooperation with others: one of our greatest resources are the people we are able to surround ourselves with.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/01/allan-stevo/face-masks-and-freedom-beware-of-skepticism-as-a-tool-of-inaction/

By Allan Stevo

We are taught a healthy and critical mind is skeptical. That is not true. A healthy and critical mind is skeptical when appropriate. Skeptical must never be a default, for then skepticism can be as self-sabotaging as apathy.

To be convinced to not care about the outcome of your own actions, or to not believe that your actions bring meaningful consequences, is one of the greatest harms that can be done to you in the modern era. An additional harm is done to an individual in modernity by injection of undue skepticism in his world view.

Libertarians, conservatives, and other heterodox thinkers of our contemporary and overly trendy era are especially at risk of this.

It can be easy to come to heterodox thinking because one is, by default, contrarian rather than insightful. Contrarian is not a synonym for insightful, though it is often mistaken as such.

This desire to be different from others sheds little more light than a default desire to be the same as others. Rather than being the obedient sheep of the herd, you are then the black sheep who dyed his own wool black.

The contrarian behavior lends itself to individualism, but not necessarily to a pursuit of greater truth.

Being different is not enough to be right. In fact, there are many things that the herd does right. Like anyone else living an unexamined life: the contrarian is left with a distorted view of the world and a life full of kneejerk reactions if he can’t recognize and control this tendency.

Being different is not enough. Seeking truth is the goal, and marshalling your resources accordingly is the necessity. Far from that goal, the contrarian may even be left with a spirit opposed to cooperation with others: one of our greatest resources are the people we are able to surround ourselves with.

To innately be hard to cooperate with and to leave yourself in that raw state is self-debilitating.

Unchecked skepticism places itself in a similar position of self-debilitation.

An unfamiliar idea is not then evaluated on its merits. It is evaluated on its novelty.

Skepticism can be the other side of the coin of trend following. It can be mere trend opposing.

Skepticism can be the enemy of faith. It is with great truth that people say faith can move mountains. It need not be a religious conviction. To tell yourself something is possible and to commit yourself to doing that thing makes that thing possible and far more likely to occur than before the person of faith conceived it. The person of faith is required to act in order for creation to occur. If you don’t act, creation cannot occur. If you don’t fight, you can’t win.

He with no faith, moves no mountains.

It is the leap of faith that brings creation, that brings victory, that brings the moving of mountains. No matter how outlandish the aim, the leap of faith is required to reach the goal. Those able to make the greatest leaps of faith, and who find themselves able to commit to the execution, achieve the greatest feats. In contrast, it is the overly skeptical voices around us or within us that prevent creation, that prevent victory, that prevent the moving of mountains.

In whose interest could it possibly be to prevent greatness in our midst? Probably not yours, dear warrior. And certainly not mine.

The skeptical can be easily convinced to focus on that which does not matter. Politics sucks. Fights are brutal. Government is rotten. Life is a drag. I get it: there are lots of bad things in the world. That’s no permission for anyone to be such a wuss. For anyone to be so mentally weak. It’s no permission at all.

Skepticism is a grand tool. Used improperly, like any tool, it can be leverage for such great evil. It is not the tool that is evil or good, it is the behavior of the one holding the tool. To allow unchecked skepticism is a great evil to yourself and all around you. And do you know whose fault it is when you use a tool for evil?

Yours.

You’ll never take back our country with weakness. You’ll never take back your freedom with weakness. You’ll never take back our freedom with weakness.

Lots of things suck.

That’s no reason to leave the fight.

Skepticism is not a tool of action.

That is evil enough, but it is not sufficiently derided in our era. It is worse than a mere tool of inaction. It is a tool of weakness. Skepticism is a tool of weakness.

“The unexamined life is not worth living,” said Socrates.

One of your greatest tools is your ability to do exactly that — to turn a mirror on yourself, to find truth in your search, to exactingly look at the world, and to act in the world, but most importantly to act within yourself and in your own life around you.

Examined skepticism can be such a useful tool, while some of the greatest potential in our present era is lost upon those with unchecked skepticism.

How useful they are to the enemy.

How effectively they have debilitated themselves.

How little faith it takes, how wonderfully powerful you become, if you can take a tiny leap of faith.

A tiny leap of faith.

The unchecked skepticism you proudly welcome into your own life, and nurture, chokes faith out of your life in a way your greatest enemy would never be able to do.

Push away unexamined skepticism and act, for you actions matter. “Face Masks in One Lesson is a tool you can use for exactly that.

Looking For Warriors: Face Masks, Giving In, & Proceeding Boldly Against Evil – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on December 31, 2020

As with all central planning, a one-size-fits-all approach from central planners in the public health field brings with it all the same downfalls of other blunt force central planning. This approach which we call by the public relations developed term “public health,” in our era, is a polar opposite of medicine, which at its best has an individualized approach going back more than 2500 years and pits doctor and patient as a team against the world.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2020/12/allan-stevo/looking-for-warriors-face-masks-giving-in-proceeding-boldly-against-evil/

By Allan Stevo

Mr. Stevo:

I read your article “Face Masks Refusal Says So Much, Because Courage Is the Prerequisite to  All Virtuous Behavior.”

When the suggestion first started to wear a mask to help stop the spread of Covid, I was skeptical and not a believer. And did not wear one. Then it became a requirement.  I was very reluctant . However, I did then do a lot of research regarding mask wearing for Covid. There are many articles and videos on this subject. And after reading on this matter, I became convinced masks could help, at least on some level, in helping stop the spread of Covid.

It is apparent you think masks are useless. I would like to believe this. But how do I combat videos such as this one at Men’s Health and It’s Okay To Be Smart that supposedly show masks stopping the droplets containing the virus from someone with the virus? 

J.T.

Dear J.T.,

Thank you for this note.

This Is A Poor Source 

Men’s Health is a poor source for this type of information, but it depicts the popular sentiment that is now circulating, so I am grateful for the reference point.

The information at those links is spread with a lack of understanding by those writing on the topic, or is alternately spread with some dishonesty. It’s not clear which is more common. Certainly it is both dishonest and irresponsible to write for an audience about a topic which the writer is unable to comprehend the magnitude of. Articles like the one linked are reverberators of unhelpful information taken out of context and obedient to a status quo.

Confirmation Bias: Beware Of Information Obedient To The Status quo 

When information is obedient to a status quo, it deserves a special level of skepticism to avoid the bias known as confirmation bias, an easy bias to fall into.

Mechanistic Studies Are Accurate “In Theory” 

The link you sent points to mechanistic studies. Mechanistic studies are not useful in prescribing behavior on this matter because they use theory to attempt to depict reality instead of actually measuring reality to the best of our ability. Sometimes we cannot measure the results of an experiment very well. With face masks we can. Mechanistic studies are commonly cited because they fit the narrative that everyone must be masked. They are not commonly cited because they are the best depictions of reality, which should be the meritocratic basis for citing a study.

Better Sources: Look For Randomized Controlled Trials With Laboratory Confirmed Results 

If you desire to avoid the confirmation bias that has accompanied face masks in this heavily politicized electoral year, I recommend you look for randomized controlled trials with laboratory confirmed results. These are attempts at measuring reality to the best of our ability. Studies like these have often been ignored and even censored in 2020 because the results so clearly counter the politicized narrative that all must be masked.

Mechanistic studies consistently tell us what can be summarized as “Face masks should in theory work to prevent Covid-19 transmission,” while randomized controlled trials with laboratory confirmed results consistently tell us what can be summarized as “In reality however, masks do not in fact work to prevent Covid transmission and may increase transmission, making face masks not neutral but harmful.”

There Is No Need For A Narrative Of Divisiveness, Yet This Is What We Have 

There is no need for divisiveness on this topic. The two types of studies are very helpful when read alongside each other and the results integrate quite nicely.

It should be no surprise that theory and reality in this field are divergent, since theory and reality are divergent in many fields. Scientific journalists covering the topic out of a sense of honesty for the subject matter would have no problem integrating these two types of studies, by saying: “In theory face masks should work to prevent the spread of Covid, in reality they don’t work to prevent the spread of Covid.” There’s nothing complicated about constructing such a sentence. There’s nothing complicated about presenting the idea in a way that anyone over the age of eight could easily read it.

Beware Of Those Telling You How A Theory Is So Complicated There Is No Way You Would Possibly Understand 

I have long found that theories that cannot be described to an eight-year-old are either fallacious or poorly understood by the speaker. Simplicity of communication is obtainable to he who understands his subject matter and possesses a sincere desire to communicate.

Instead, this topic of face masks and Covid is covered with great divisiveness. Anyone who suggests that an unmasked person is putting others in harm’s way or does not care about another is doing their audience a great disservice. Either they don’t respect their audience enough to understand their subject matter or they don’t respect their audience enough to cover the subject matter honestly.

For A Person Trying To Make Sense Of Efficacy, Xiao Presents The Most Useful Face Mask Research Of 2020 

Xiao in the May 2020 issue of Emerging Infectious Disease is the best study of the year on the topic. For those interested in delving deeper, I address that topic further in a recent article entitled “Reminder: The CDC Says Face Masks Don’t Stop Covid.” I cover the same topic in greater detail in my recent book Face Masks in One Lesson. I strongly recommend Xiao’s journal article.

Emerging Infectious Disease is a CDC journal of epidemiology. Attempting to avoid lip service or the lure of political correctness, Xiao and her co-authors looked at Covid as a serious concern and sought to distinguish superstition from efficacious approaches.

In Xiao’s Emerging Infectious Disease review of 14 randomized controlled trials with laboratory confirmed results, we see quite conclusively that

  • 1.) Face masks do not reduce the spread of Covid-19 or other respiratory viruses,
  • 2.) Hand washing does not reduce the spread of Covid-19 or other respiratory viruses, and
  • 3.) Disinfecting surfaces does not reduce the spread of Covid-19 or other respiratory viruses. Fauci: The Bernie Mado… Ortleb, Charles Buy New $5.99 (as of 02:55 EDT – Details)

This information is so vitally important, and Xiao deserves reading by anyone with an interest in the topic. Again Xiao does not need to be seen as a contradiction of mechanistic face mask studies, but an elaboration that we can turn to in order to see that theory diverges from reality on this topic and that practice should be modified accordingly.

Xiao’s Conclusion: Face Masks Are Superstition At Best 

The face mask is superstition at best. There is no question about that. This has been known for a long time and is even more obvious now after billions have been masked.

Xiao, takes this a step further. Xiao points out that the face mask is harmful and may increase the spread of Covid, especially when it is worn in disregard for the following protocol:

  • 1.) Face masks are single use only,
  • 2.) They are to be sterile when put on,
  • 3.) They are to be put on with sterile hands,
  • 4.) The nose and mouth should not be touched while wearing a face mask, and
  • 5.) If the face mask becomes moist it should be changed immediately.

Xiao cites a 2009 World Health Organization circular on this topic. I’ve never seen a single person in 2020 follow this protocol and no one should not be expected to as they are not trained in the protocol. Notably, as much as this protocol is followed, face masks do not work to reduce the spread of Covid-19 or other respiratory viruses. That is the bottom line.

Face masks are superstition at best.

“At Best,” Is Not A Realistic Standard, There Is Much Downside To Masking

There is also much worse to be said about face masks. Xiao does not cover the vastly more harmful aspects of face mask wearing:

  • 1.) Restriction of breathing,
  • 2.) Restriction of waste removal,
  • 3.) Medical impact,
  • 4.) Individualized impact necessitating an individual approach,
  • 5.) Deceased oxygen increased carbon dioxide in the micro environment of the face mask,
  • 6.) Social impact,
  • 7.) Developmental impact,
  • 8.) Communicational impact.

This was outside of her scope. The entire picture is something that must be responsibly synthesized by doctor and patient for an individual approach.

Central Planning Makes Its Way To Medicine Under The Guise Of “Public Health”

As with all central planning, a one-size-fits-all approach from central planners in the public health field brings with it all the same downfalls of other blunt force central planning. This approach which we call by the public relations developed term “public health,” in our era, is a polar opposite of medicine, which at its best has an individualized approach going back more than 2500 years and pits doctor and patient as a team against the world.

“Public health” is a theory that came about in the second half of the 1800s on the English and later the American side of the North Atlantic and seeks to drive a wedge between doctor and patient in order to make it the decision of neighbor what medical treatment a patient receive. Rather than doctor and patient against the world, it is doctor as a servant of the plebiscite, imposing that will upon the patient. Public health has aspects of communism and utilitarianism mixed in with medicine to effectively make it the very opposite of medicine.

It may be no surprise to readers that those who advocate for one-size-fits-all central planning in the field of public health have the same opinion about that same technocratic-led one-size-fits-all central planning in government and economics. It is a truly vile field that seeks to use manipulation to control man. A VOYAGE IN IMAGINATIO… Holmes, Dr Joel S Buy New $9.95 (as of 04:21 EDT – Details)

Public health motivation theory is an openly discussed topic in the field that is fundamental to public health and so contrary to medical ethics for it seeks to frame and spin apparently unbiased education to achieve a predetermined outcome, making doctor into a salesman or pitchman rather than someone seeking to achieve informed consent for his patient, to whom he has that duty.

Public Health Has Become A Countermovement To Medical Ethics 

Public health is in total contradiction to virtually all medical ethics, including the ethics around informed consent that grew out of the Nuremberg trials. It may be no shock therefore to recognize that the reincarnation of the most vile socialists of the past century — the national socialist of Germany, the Stalinist socialists of Russia, the Maoist socialists of East Asia, and their many compatriots — are kept alive and well in the field of public health. All of these men were young and charismatic in their time and praised in the pages of The New York Times. The same paper praises the public health politburo members of our day as heroes.

There is nothing heroic about men and women who bring tyranny to their homeland and seek to extinguish liberty from the globe, all the while claiming through cynical gaslighting that this utter destruction of human society is the only way to protect your loved ones and all that you hold dear.

It is hard to be appropriately pejorative about such behavior.

While They Are Effective Marketers, And Unethically Manipulative, The Field Of “Public Health” Has Not Hid Its Intent 

For more than 170 years, the forefathers of the public health field have publicly stated their desire to eliminate the structures of society and all people hold dear — church, free expression, self-defense, private property, livelihood, business, family.

Should anyone be surprised that in 2020, the year that the public health professional was allowed to take over society, we ended up with exactly the kind of life that the public health profession and their forefathers have been promising for 170 years?

Listen to them. They are telling you their plans. They have never hid it.

He who follows a single one of their orders, the face mask included, betrays freedom. You enable the most disgusting evil in the world.

Face Masks Should Not Be Worn By Any Person Of Conscience 

The face mask is a total joke of a medical intervention advanced by the clown of a man we call Fauci. It is with great sadness that I’ve seen even a single American adopt this medical intervention. Sadly, this adoption of face masks have been far more impactful to society than just a single American engaging in this harmful superstition.

That would be forgivable. That would be so minor as to be unnoticed. We are past the point where anyone should say “Anyone who wants to should wear a face mask.” The toxic symbol of obedience should be eradicated with the greatest level of societal pressure that a peaceful people can tolerate. 2020 is very different and the comfort of supplicating oneself to the masses is so impactful, so harmful to all that I hold dear and so deceitfully done in the name of protecting all that we hold dear.

No person of conscience should wear the mask even a single minute more. Not a minute. To do so is to give tacit approval to a great lie and to send ripples of harm through society as you empower such a lie.

I do not wear a mask. I will not wear a mask. I seldom allow anyone in a mask to speak to me without first removing their mask. I hold some degree of contempt for those who wear masks.

Heroes Walk The Earth 

Readers of these pages refuse masks in their businesses for the liability it creates for them as a fainting hazard. They refuse service personnel who come onto their property masked. They sue government agencies that force them to be masked. They take their children out of schools where they are masked and brainwashed about Covid. They scold managers for requiring their employees to be masked. They push against the illogical and unjust. They inform their bosses that they can fire them if they need to, but they will never again wear a mask. Had 2020 not come as it did, I would never have met these brave souls who so boldly walk the earth and demand freedom for themselves and others.

If you are not already behaving like these brave readers, it is not too late. You, too, can set a higher standard and demand such freedoms in your own life.

Sheeplike Behavior Happens, But Tacit Approval From Those Who Know Better Is So Much Worse  

No adult should be given a bye for the sheeplike behavior they engage in. Sheeplike people exist though and that is a reality of life. Those who know better and refuse to go through the discomfort of acting on their realization are truly awful.

Humanity needs those who see the reality of this behavior to act in defense of reason and liberty. So many do not. They abrogate that role. They burn down society because they refuse to act to protect it.

Minor discomfort and subtle displays of courage are all that is required for them to behave accordingly to advance freedom for themselves and others. It is a testament to how little society must mean to them or how costly subtle displays of courage must appear to them if they are unable to summon the ability to no longer fly this disgusting flag on their precious faces.

No decent liberty-lover would fly a Nazi flag or a Soviet flag out of sincerity, but many fly a far more pernicious symbol.

Courage Is An Axiom 

There is clearly a disconnect for so many Americans to so potently represent such an awful symbol and to carry it around with them — not on an armband or embroidered to a hat — but on their precious faces, covering their precious mouths.

Out of many conversations, the most clear sense I’ve been able to make of that disconnect is the far greater prevalence of cowardice in the United States than I had previously realized.

There I reach an axiomatic disconnect with the mask wearer, for if you have no courage, you are not a man to be trusted, you are not an adult who has come of age, you are playing the role of the perpetual child that modernity wants you to be and wants to convince you that you are.

There is a question left up to each of us to answer: “Am I too cowardly to be inconvenienced in the name of human freedom?”

People who I once viewed as heroes have answered that question in ways I would never have expected.

I hope that you have decided to never again wear a mask.

PETER HITCHENS: Face masks turn us into voiceless submissives | Daily Mail Online

Posted by M. C. on July 20, 2020

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8537489/PETER-HITCHENS-Face-masks-turn-voiceless-submissives.html

By Peter Hitchens for The Mail on Sunday

In the name of Covid, the State has already thrust itself into every corner of our existence.

It has come between husbands and wives at the ends of their lives. It has forbidden the old to embrace their grandchildren.

It has denied us funerals and weddings, locked the churches, silenced the ancient monastic music of cathedral choirs and prevented the free worship of God for the first time in 800 years, and banned us (unless we are Left-wing) from holding or attending public meetings.

It has ordered us to stay at home, scolded or fined us for sunbathing, going on country rambles or even entering our front gardens.

The Government began its wild, disproportionate shutdown of the country by spreading fear of a devastating plague that would destroy the NHS and kill untold thousands. Now, as many people find that Covid-19 is, in fact, nothing of the kind, new ways have to be found to keep up the alarm levels. Commuters are pictured above on the London Underground

The Government began its wild, disproportionate shutdown of the country by spreading fear of a devastating plague that would destroy the NHS and kill untold thousands. Now, as many people find that Covid-19 is, in fact, nothing of the kind, new ways have to be found to keep up the alarm levels. Commuters are pictured above on the London Underground

It has forced millions of us to stop working, sabotaged the educations – at school and university – of untold numbers of young people and has become our boss and paymaster in the biggest state takeover of life and work ever attempted by non-Communists.

Soon we will discover that it has also wrecked an already wobbly economy and separated untold numbers of us from jobs and businesses we thought were safe. Soon, too, it will also separate us from our savings, through punishing tax and savage inflation, to pay for the disaster it has caused.

Now it presumes to tell us what to wear. And what it wants us to wear is a soggy cloth muzzle, a face-nappy that turns its wearer from a normal human into a mumbling, mouthless submissive.

And this, it seems, is popular. Is there nothing the modern British people will not put up with? Britain’s muzzle consumption is now so high that six months from now there will be reports of dolphins and whales floundering about in an ocean made sticky by millions of gallons of hand-sanitiser, as they choke on congealed clumps of used muzzles. These items are set to become the new plastic bags.

Why is this frenzy taking place?

Here is a clue. On July 12, Deborah Cohen, the medical correspondent of BBC2’s Newsnight, revealed an astonishing thing. The World Health Organisation (WHO) had reversed its advice on face masks, from ‘don’t wear them’ to ‘do wear them’.

But the key fact was that it had not done so because of scientific information – the evidence had not backed the wearing of face coverings – but because of political lobbying.

She revealed on Twitter that: ‘We had been told by various sources [that the] WHO committee reviewing the evidence had not backed masks but they recommended them due to political lobbying.’ She said the BBC had then put this to the WHO, which did not deny it.

In March, the WHO had said: ‘There is currently no evidence that wearing a mask (whether medical or other types) by healthy persons in the wider community setting, including universal community masking, can protect them from infection with respiratory viruses, including Covid-19.’

The American TV news channel CNN reported on March 31 that Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO health emergencies programme, had said at a briefing in Geneva: ‘There is no specific evidence to suggest that the wearing of masks by the mass population has any potential benefit.

‘In fact, there’s some evidence to suggest the opposite in the misuse of wearing a mask properly or fitting it properly.’

A few weeks ago, the WHO changed its advice to say it ‘advises that governments should encourage the general public to wear masks where there is widespread transmission and physical distancing is difficult, such as on public transport, in shops or in other confined or crowded environments.’

Earlier that same month, England’s chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, had said that wearing face masks would do little to combat the outbreak.

While noting that if someone was infected, they might reduce the danger of spreading the disease by covering their faces, Prof Whitty said wearing a face mask had almost no effect on reducing the risk of contracting the illness.

He stated: ‘In terms of wearing a mask, our advice is clear: that wearing a mask if you don’t have an infection reduces the risk almost not at all. So we do not advise that.’

People are seen walking down London's Oxford Street. There is plenty of research showing that the case for muzzles is poor, especially a survey done for the dental profession four years ago, which quietly vanished from the internet after mask opponents began to cite it

Also in March, the Advertising Standards Authority banned two firms’ advertisements for masks, saying that the adverts were ‘misleading, irresponsible and likely to cause fear without justifiable reason’.

At about the same time, Dr Jenny Harries, a Deputy Chief Medical Officer, warned that people could be putting themselves more at risk from contracting Covid by wearing muzzles. She said masks could ‘actually trap the virus’, and cause the person wearing it to breathe it in. She explained: ‘For the average member of the public walking down a street, it is not a good idea.’

On April 3, the other Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, said he did not believe healthy people wearing them would reduce the spread of the disease in the UK.

The British Government has also zig-zagged. Read the rest of this entry »

What If the Government Has It Wrong? – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on May 21, 2020

What if the COVID-19 virus has run its course and run into natural immunities? What if many folks have had symptom-free episodes with many viruses and are now immune from them? What if the government refuses to understand this because it undermines the government’s power to control us?

What if — as Thomas Jefferson said — the blood of patriots should be spilled on the tree of revolution at least once in every generation? What if we nullify the government that has nullified our rights?

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2020/05/andrew-p-napolitano/what-if-the-government-has-it-wrong/

What if the government has it wrong — on the medicine and the law?

What if face masks can’t stop the COVID-19 virus? What if quarantining the healthy makes no medical sense? What if staying at home for months reduces immunity?

What if more people have been infected with the virus in their homes than outside them?

What if there are as many credible scientists and physicians who disagree with the government as those who agree with it? What if the government chooses to listen only to scientists and physicians who would tell it what it wanted to hear? What if the government silences scientists and physicians, and even fires one, who attempt to tell it what it didn’t want to hear?

What if the government wants to stoke fear in the populace because mass fear produces mass compliance? What if individual fear reduces individual immunity?

What if a healthy immunity gets stronger when challenged? What if a pampered immunity gets weaker when challenged? What if we all pass germs and viruses — that we don’t even know we have — on to others all the time, but their immune systems repel what we pass on to them?

What if the COVID-19 virus has run its course and run into natural immunities? What if many folks have had symptom-free episodes with many viruses and are now immune from them? What if the government refuses to understand this because it undermines the government’s power to control us?

What if government orders to nursing homes and assisted living facilities to accept the sick and contagious are insane? What if the same government that micromanages nursing homes and assisted living facilities knows that they are not hospitals and are not equipped to cure the sick or contain contagion?

What if the government makes health care decisions not on the basis of medicine or human nature but statistics? What if reliance on the government’s statistics has made many folks sick?

What if we’d all be healthier and happier if we make our own choices with our own physicians rather than the government making choices for us? What if it is un-American for the government to tell you how to care for yourself? What if it is equally un-American for you to follow the government when it intrudes into your personal choices?

What if the Supreme Court has ruled many times that your health care decisions are private, personal and to be made between you and your physician? What if the Supreme Court has also ruled many times that your private health care decisions are none of the government’s business?

What if we never elected a government to keep us free from all viruses, but we did elect it to keep us free from all tyrants? What if the government — which can’t deliver the mail, fill potholes, stop robocalls, or spend within its income — is the last entity on earth into whose hands we would voluntarily repose our health for safekeeping? What if the government won’t admit that its understanding of science is colored by politics?

What if the government has misunderstood its mandate? What if the government thinks it can do its job by keeping us safe but unfree? What if — according to the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence — government’s first duty is to safeguard our rights? What if there is no legal basis for the government to keep us at home or to close our businesses?

What if the government gave itself the power to interfere with our personal choices? What if that self-imposed power violates the basic constitutional principle that the government derives its powers from the consent of the governed? What if no one consented to a government that interferes with our personal choices? What if our personal choices to take personal chances have never needed a government permission slip?

What if the Constitution was written to restrain the government? What if all in government — local, state and federal — have taken an oath to uphold and comply with the Constitution?

What if the government decrees that liquor sales are essential but clothing sales are not? What if the government decrees that abortions are essential but orthopedic surgery is not? What if the government decrees that music stores are essential but the free exercise of religion is not?

What if these decisions about what is essential and inessential are for individuals — and not for the government — to make?

What if to the barber or short-order cook or retail sales person a barbershop and a luncheonette and a clothing store are essential? What if to those who love God, the free exercise of religion is essential?

What if the government makes essential whatever serves its friends, enhances its wealth, maintains its stability and removes obstacles to its exercise of power? What if the Constitution — with its protections of our rights to make free choices — is an intentional obstacle to governmental power?

What if America’s founders and the Constitution’s framers chose liberty over safety? What if the government doesn’t like that choice? What if the government only nominally endorses it?

What if — when the pandemic is over — the government remains tyrannical? What if — when the pandemic is over — folks sue the government for its destruction of life, liberty and property only to learn that the government gave itself immunity from such lawsuits? What if — when the pandemic is over — the government refuses to acknowledge its end?

What if — as Thomas Jefferson said — the blood of patriots should be spilled on the tree of revolution at least once in every generation? What if we nullify the government that has nullified our rights?

Why wait until we are at/past the peak?

Why do I see no masks?

Why do all three of these people need to be there in a group? Aren’t they special!

I guess the point is to make the unwashed masses think you know what you are doing.

HARRISBURG (WKBN) – Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced an order Wednesday, requiring those who work in the state to wear masks and take other social distancing actions in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Pennsylvania Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine signed an order that directs businesses that have maintained in-person operations to protect their workers by providing face masks and making it a mandatory requirement at the worksite. Businesses also must stagger stop and start times for employees, when able to, to prevent gatherings of groups…
