“To Mask or NOT to Mask?” … What does the science say?

Wearing a mask is becoming a controversial topic. The question is, do mask actually help prevent the spread of disease and do they harm your health?

To answer these questions, I have gathered the following articles and videos so you can decide for yourself, if you should be wearing one.

Science Says Healthy People Should Not Wear Masks

A VIOLATION OF ARTICLE 6 OF THE UNESCO 2005 STATEMENT ON BIOETHICS AND HUMAN RIGHTS

Section 6 Article 3. “In no case shall a collective agreement or the consent of a community leader or any other authority, substitute for an individual’s informed consent. Leaders should be aware mandating masks on the citizens of a nation and preventing their access to food, healthcare, transport or education if they don’t comply, is a WAR CRIME. Masks or ANY OTHER MEDICAL intervention MUST REMAIN VOLUNTARY.” Our government is waging a war against the people, and already commuting War Crimes.

The Science & History Of Masks In Medicine

by Shawn Stevenson

Working with top experts, reviewing university and hospital databases, and scouring over an additional 50 peer-reviewed studies… what I discovered nearly left me speechless.

What I happened upon was so surprising that I decided to examine the entire history of mask usage in medicine and study the peer-reviewed evidence that’s been gathered since their inception.

There was so much data available that I was even more speechless. In fact, the outcomes of some of these studies was so shocking that I couldn’t believe public health officials weren’t talking about them.

So, I put a team together, collected all of the data, and put it all together for you here in this video.

Additionally, you can access all of the studies at themodelhealthshow.com/maskfacts

This is truly one of the most important moments in human history. It’s time to take action to get this information into the hands of our communities. And it’s time for us to stand up and change our world for the better!

Unmasking the Dangers of Face Masks

by James Veltmeyer, MD | May 18, 2020 | Blog

About Me

I am a family physician and past Congressional candidate in San Diego, CA. I am on a mission to find smart, common sense solutions to many of our most challenging problems as a society.

 Perhaps one of the most annoying – and wholly unnecessary – government-imposed mandates during the COVID-19 crisis is the increasingly widespread demand that healthy Americans wear face masks. Of course, just a few months ago, practically everyone in the elite medical establishment – from the Surgeon General to Herr Doktor Fauci as well as the CDC and the World Health Organization were advising against the use of face masks. Now, they have all shifted gears and we are being told that we must use face coverings whenever we leave our homes or enter stores. These mandates are usually being imposed by unelected and unaccountable county health directors without the approval of any elected body of lawmakers. While many law enforcement jurisdictions are refusing to enforce the mask edicts, some are and innocent individuals are being threatened with fines or jail time. And, what exactly is the science behind all this?

The truth is there is no scientific evidence affirming the value of face coverings in preventing the transmission of viruses. Recent studies have been unable to establish any conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection, according to nationally-recognized neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock. While it’s too early to report any studies related to COVID-19, it’s unlikely masks would be any more effective against it than against the flu virus. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams himself said in March that: “The data doesn’t show that wearing masks in public will help people during the coronavirus pandemic.”

Even the CDC in its April 13 directive only recommended the use of masks when it was difficult to maintain social distancing or in areas of significant community-based transmission. Yet, mask mandates are being imposed everywhere, regardless of any social distancing issues and even in small rural counties which have been hardly impacted by the Coronavirus. We now see perfectly healthy young adults and teenagers walking down the streets or going to the park or the beach in masks, inhaling their own Co2 instead of fresh air. Employees of supermarkets and other chains are being forced to wear these masks all day long and are finding themselves unusually fatigued at the end of the work day. Drivers have even wound up in accidents because the masks have made them light-headed. One individual who crashed his SUV into a pole in Lincoln Park New Jersey on April 23 was reported by police to have fainted due to “insufficient oxygen intake/excessive carbon dioxide intake.”

Dr. Blaylock cites recent studies of health care workers using N95 masks indicating increasing episodes of headaches caused by a reduction in blood oxygenation ( hypoxia ) or an elevation in blood Co2 ( hypercapnia ). The excessive use of N95 masks can reduce blood oxygenation by as much as 20%, leading to a loss of consciousness. Dr. Fauci’s own National Institutes of Health reveal that inhaling high levels of carbon dioxide may be life-threatening. High levels of Co2 are associated with headaches, vertigo, double vision, inability to concentrate, tinnitus, seizures or suffocation due to displacement of air.

And, can the use of face masks actually make you more susceptible to COVID-19? The answer is yes. Dr. Blaylock observes that a drop in oxygen levels is associated with…… Continue reading


Blaylock: Face Masks Pose Serious Risks To The Healthy

Posted By: Russell Blaylock, MD May 11, 2020

Dr. Russell Blaylock warns that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, but they also create serious health risks to the wearer. The bottom line is that if you are not sick, you should not wear a face mask.

As businesses reopen, many are requiring shoppers and employees to wear a face mask. Costco, for instance, will not allow shoppers into the store without wearing a face mask. Many employers are requiring all employees to wear a face mask while at work. In some jurisdictions, all citizens must wear a face mask if they are outside of their own home.  ⁃ TN Editor

With the advent of the so-called COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a number of medical practices that have little or no scientific support as regards reducing the spread of this infection. One of these measures is the wearing of facial masks, either a surgical-type mask, bandana or N95 respirator mask. When this pandemic began and we knew little about the virus itself or its epidemiologic behavior, it was assumed that it would behave, in terms of spread among communities, like other respiratory viruses. Little has presented itself after intense study of this virus and its behavior to change this perception.

This is somewhat of an unusual virus in that for the vast majority of people infected by the virus, one experiences either no illness (asymptomatic) or very little sickness. Only a very small number of people are at risk of a potentially serious outcome from the infection—mainly those with underlying serious medical conditions in conjunction with advanced age and frailty, those with immune compromising conditions and nursing home patients near the end of their lives. There is growing evidence that the treatment protocol issued to treating doctors by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mainly intubation and use of a ventilator (respirator), may have contributed significantly to the high death rate in these select individuals.

By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.

Russell Blaylock, MD

As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent careful examination of the literature, in which 17 of the best studies were analyzed, concluded that, “ None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.”1

Masks Don’t Work: A review of science relevant to COVID-19 social policy

Denis G. Rancourt, PhD Researcher, Ontario Civil Liberties Association (ocla.ca) Working report, published at Research Gate

Abstract

Masks and respirators do not work. There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles. Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective-dose is smaller than one aerosol particle. The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history.


As Americans turn against each other over mask mandates, many scientists are speaking out, including former professor of physics at the University of Ottawa, Denis Rancourt, PhD, who just released a paper compiling seven studies on the science surrounding the effectiveness of masks.

Masks Do Not Work–Peer Reviewed Science Studies Documents

ONA Wins Second Decision on “Unreasonable and Illogical” Vaccinate or Mask Influenza Policies – ONA

The Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) has won a second decision on the controversial vaccinate or mask (VOM) policy, striking down the policy in effect at St. Michael’s Hospital and several other hospitals that form the Toronto Academic Health Science Network (TAHSN). These policies force nurses and other health-care workers to wear an unfitted surgical mask for the entirety of their shift if they choose not to receive the influenza vaccine.
After reviewing extensive expert evidence submitted by both ONA and St. Michael’s Hospital, which was the lead case for the TAHSN group, Arbitrator William Kaplan, in his September 6 decision, found that St. Michael’s VOM policy is “illogical and makes no sense” and “is the exact opposite of being reasonable.” In reaching this conclusion, Arbitrator Kaplan rejected the hospital’s evidence. A copy of the full decision is available here.

Face coverings and face masks

Column: Chatham-Kent medical officer of health likens masks to ‘chicken soup’

Chatham-Kent’s medical officer of health David Colby deserves credit for his dedication to the people in his community.

On Tuesday evening, long past my column deadline about the face mask debate in Chatham-Kent that goes to municipal council on Aug. 10, he found time to return my phone call. He was still in his office working through another hectic day during the pandemic.

The case counts and public pressure haven’t swayed Colby, whose background is in microbiology and virology, to change his tune about recommending a mandatory face mask order for the municipality.  He won’t do it.

He says he’s not a hold out. “I’m trying to approach this from science” Colby said. “That’s where I’m coming from when it comes to keeping the people of Chatham-Kent safe.”

The bottom line, Colby said, is there is no solid scientific evidence to support cloth face masks. Unless they’re medical-grade, they will do no more than “catch large expectorated secretions” from people who should be staying home if they’re hacking and coughing.

He sees masks as placebos or security blankets. The 98 per cent of Ontario that has orders in place, are using masks as “chicken soup: try some, maybe it won’t hurt. Is that really the basis for public policy, that it might help, why don’t we give it a try?”

Colby said face mask studies are “all over the map” and of poor quality, but there’s one study in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) suggesting cloth masks “increased the rate of transmission” of infection.

A 2015 BMJ report I found online studied more than 1,600 full-time hospital workers in Hanoi, Vietnam, with some using medical-grade masks and some using cloth masks. The conclusion was the use of cloth masks may result in an increased rate of infection because of moisture and poor filtration. The study advised against using them……

The Miserable Pseudo-Science Behind Face Masks, Social Distancing And Contact Tracing

By Patrick Wood

Once upon a time, there was something called science. It included the discovery of truth about nature, the elements, the universe, etc. It was practiced by honest and accountable practitioners called scientists and engineers. They often invented cool new things as a result of their studies, but generally they had no primal urge to use their knowledge to dominate other people, groups or even entire societies.

Then certain other scientists and engineers rose up and made a discovery of their own. If true science was ever-so-slightly skewed and engineering disciplines were applied to society at large, then they could indeed use their “knowledge” to dominate and control other people, groups, entire societies or even, heaven forbid, the entire planet.

The first group pursued science. The second group pursued pseudo-science.

Merriam-Webster defines pseudo-science as “a system of theories, assumptions, and methods erroneously regarded as scientific.”  The Oxford dictionary clarifies by stating, “a collection of beliefs or practices mistakenly regarded as being based on scientific method.

Pseudo-science quickly emerged as the principal domain of Technocrats, but they soon found that scientific debate with those promoting real science was most inconvenient to their social engineering goals. The solution was simple: claim that their own pseudo-science was indeed the real science, and then refuse debate by excluding all other voices to the contrary.

In the context of pseudo-science, this report will examine the three primary tools of fighting COVID-19: face masks, social distancing and contact tracing.

“To Mask or NOT to Mask?” … THAT is the question!

By Ty Bollinger
May 29, 2020

I can still remember seeing the signs in restaurants growing up in Dallas, Texas.

At the time, it seemed like a reasonable policy. I mean, who wants to sit down for a meal and have to look at someone’s gnarly toes?

Now, with the COVID-19 “plan-demic” going on, lots of businesses have turned that into

No mask, no service!

Have you seen the insane video of the mob of people chasing the lady out of a Staten Island grocery store for not wearing a mask, calling her a “dirty-ass pig” and a “dirty-ass ho”?

Why was everyone so angry? Everyone in the mob was wearing a mask, so weren’t they “safe”?  Oh yes, I forgot, that makes too much sense…

Anthony Fauci, head of the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), did an interview on 60 Minutes where he said, “People shouldn’t be walking around wearing masks.”


Why you shouldn’t wear a face mask if you’re healthy



Rashid A. Buttar, DO, FAAPM, FACAM, FAAIM: Dr. Rashid A. Buttar received his undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis with a double major in Biology and Theology at age 21, and then attended medical school at the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery in Des Moines, Iowa, graduating with his medical degree at age 25. He trained in General Surgery and Emergency Medicine and served as Brigade Surgeon for 2nd Infantry Division, Republic of South Korea, and later as Chief of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Moncrief Army Community Hospital at Ft. Jackson in Columbia, South Carolina while serving in the US Army.

Dr. Buttar became an Eagle Scout at the age of 14, becoming the youngest person in the US to get his Eagle that year, and made the list for promotion to Major in the US Army at the age of 28, becoming the youngest person to make the list for Major that year in the US Army just prior to finishing his service in the Armed Forces. During his military career, Dr. Buttar had the privilege of serving with and being attached to the 2nd Infantry Division, the 101st Air Assault Division and the 5th Special Forces Group. Dr. Buttar is board certified and a Diplomate in Clinical Metal Toxicology and Preventive Medicine, is board eligible in Emergency Medicine and has achieved fellowship status in three separate medical organizations (Fellow of the American College for Advancement in Medicine, Fellow of the American Academy of Preventive Medicine, and Fellow of the American Association of Integrative Medicine).

Dr. Buttar now serves as the Medical Director for the Centers for Advanced Medicine with clinics on the east and west coast. The Centers specialize in the treatment and needs of patients refractory to conventional treatments and who have failed the standard approach to their disease process. With a special emphasis on the interrelationship between environmental toxicity and the insidious disease processes and the “up-regulation” of the immune system, the Center has attracted patients from 89 different countries suffering from autism, cancer, heart disease, stroke and many other conditions too numerous to list.

WHO: No evidence wearing a mask can protect healthy people from coronavirus

The World Health Organization (WHO) said masks should only be worn by health care workers and those who are infected. By Joseph Guzman

Story at a glance

  • WHO released new guidance Monday advising that healthy people don’t need to wear masks.
  • WHO said the use of masks in the community may create a false sense of security, prompting people to disregard physical distancing measures.
  • The CDC recently recommended the public wear homemade masks or face coverings, as people who unknowingly have the virus could pass it to others.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says healthy people don’t need to wear face masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, and masks should only be for those who are sick, their caretakers and health care workers. 

In guidance released by WHO Monday, the United Nations public health agency 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 prevent them from infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.”

WHO said the use of medical masks among the general public could create a false sense of security and cause people to ignore social distancing measures and hygiene practices. Currently in the U.S., the overwhelming majority of states have issued stay-at-home orders to stop the spread of the virus, and federal guidance advises citizens to stay home and not gather in groups of more than ten through April 30. 

WHO said another concern is people may contaminate themselves by touching their face more frequently when they adjust, remove and dispose of their masks. 


So what does the World Health Organization have say about masks?

When and how to wear medical masks to protect against coronavirus?

  • If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with COVID-19.
  • Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing.
  • Masks are effective only when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
  • If you wear a mask, then you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly.

Can wearing a mask protect you against coronavirus?

  • Before putting on a mask, clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
  • Cover mouth and nose with mask and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask.
  • Avoid touching the mask while using it; if you do, clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
  • Replace the mask with a new one as soon as it is damp and do not re-use single-use masks.
  • To remove the mask: remove it from behind (do not touch the front of mask); discard immediately in a closed bin; clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.

Universal Masking in Hospitals in the Covid-19 Era

  • Madelyn Pearson, D.N.P., R.N.,
  • and Erica S. Shenoy, M.D., Ph.D.

As the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic continues to explode, hospital systems are scrambling to intensify their measures for protecting patients and health care workers from the virus. An increasing number of frontline providers are wondering whether this effort should include universal use of masks by all health care workers. Universal masking is already standard practice in Hong Kong, Singapore, and other parts of Asia and has recently been adopted by a handful of U.S. hospitals.

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.……

……..What is clear, however, is that universal masking alone is not a panacea. A mask will not protect providers caring for a patient with active Covid-19 if it’s not accompanied by meticulous hand hygiene, eye protection, gloves, and a gown. A mask alone will not prevent health care workers with early Covid-19 from contaminating their hands and spreading the virus to patients and colleagues. Focusing on universal masking alone may, paradoxically, lead to more transmission of Covid-19 if it diverts attention from implementing more fundamental infection-control measures.

Here is a a comment taken from below this video. Think about it. It makes total sense. He states:

Andrew Young

I think this video does a great job of showing how easily cross-contamination occurs even when being conscientious. I think it also demonstrates the futility and impracticality and irrationality of trying to maintain this kind of “sanitary” lifestyle. This is why we have immune systems. Let’s also talk about how the constant “sanitizing” of our environment and quarantining of healthy individuals serves to actually weaken our immune systems. And we haven’t even touched on the restricted oxygen intake, the build-up of CO2 in the bloodstream, and all the other complications of constantly wearing a facemask.

The video above clearly shows that if this virus is as contagious as we are lead to beLIEve that it would be spreading like wild fire as I am sure that most of the population are doing it incorrectly.



Rachael Said:

I work in an area where we deal with people with all sorts of medical issues etc one thing about protocols from the health organization is they have said PPE gear “will not guarantee” protection from this virus why because they have no idea about what is going to and not going to protect you they have to put that into protocols so stop wearing masks and gloves gloves unless changed ever time you touch something and you are cross contamination everything you come into contact with stop listening to advise that’s not true gloves even when sanitized is disgusting it doesn’t make them sterile do they do that in hospitals no why because they would infect the next patient they operate on they create more infections they don’t stop the issue clean your hands with soap its more of a barrier then dirty filthy gloves and wipe all your surfaces with bleach it works


It state clearly on this box of masks. This product does not provide any protection against COVID-19 or any other viruses.



The Science of The Impact of Wearing Masks

Published on June 2, 2020

James Lyons-Weiler

James Lyons-Weiler

Editor In Chief at Science, Public Health Policy, and the Law

Public health policy should be founded on science. We’ve already seen how study after study show that masks do not reduce transmission in public spaces.

Now it appears that a study from 2015 found that wearing cloth masks increases respiratory infections.



COMMENTARY: Masks-for-all for COVID-19 not based on sound data

People wearing masks on a train

Dr. Brosseau is a national expert on respiratory protection and infectious diseases and professor (retired), University of Illinois at Chicago.
Dr. Sietsema is also an expert on respiratory protection and an assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Data lacking to recommend broad mask use

We do not recommend requiring the general public who do not have symptoms of COVID-19-like illness to routinely wear cloth or surgical masks because:

  • There is no scientific evidence they are effective in reducing the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission
  • Their use may result in those wearing the masks to relax other distancing efforts because they have a sense of protection

Sweeping mask recommendations—as many have proposed—will not reduce SARS-CoV-2 transmission, as evidenced by the widespread practice of wearing such masks in Hubei province, China, before and during its mass COVID-19 transmission experience earlier this year. Our review of relevant studies indicates that cloth masks will be ineffective at preventing SARS-CoV-2 transmission, whether worn as source control or as PPE. 

Surgical masks likely have some utility as source control (meaning the wearer limits virus dispersal to another person) from a symptomatic patient in a healthcare setting to stop the spread of large cough particles and limit the lateral dispersion of cough particles. They may also have very limited utility as source control or PPE in households.

Respirators, though, are the only option that can ensure protection for frontline workers dealing with COVID-19 cases, once all of the strategies for optimizing respirator supply have been implemented…….

Conclusions

While this is not an exhaustive review of masks and respirators as source control and PPE, we made our best effort to locate and review the most relevant studies of laboratory and real-world performance to inform our recommendations. Results from laboratory studies of filter and fit performance inform and support the findings in real-world settings.

Cloth masks are ineffective as source control and PPE, surgical masks have some role to play in preventing emissions from infected patients, and respirators are the best choice for protecting healthcare and other frontline workers, but not recommended for source control. These recommendations apply to pandemic and non-pandemic situations.

Leaving aside the fact that they are ineffective, telling the public to wear cloth or surgical masks could be interpreted by some to mean that people are safe to stop isolating at home. It’s too late now for anything but stopping as much person-to-person interaction as possible.

Masks may confuse that message and give people a false sense of security. If masks had been the solution in Asia, shouldn’t they have stopped the pandemic before it spread elsewhere?


Why Face Masks Don’t Work: A Revealing Review

October 18, 2016
by John Hardie, BDS, MSc, PhD, FRCDC

Yesterday’s Scientific Dogma is Today’s Discarded Fable

Introduction
The above quotation is ascribed to Justice Archie Campbell author of Canada’s SARS Commission Final Report. 1 It is a stark reminder that scientific knowledge is constantly changing as new discoveries contradict established beliefs. For at least three decades a face mask has been deemed an essential component of the personal protective equipment worn by dental personnel. A current article, “Face Mask Performance: Are You Protected” gives the impression that masks are capable of providing an acceptable level of protection from airborne pathogens. 2 Studies of recent diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and the Ebola Crisis combined with those of seasonal influenza and drug resistant tuberculosis have promoted a better understanding of how respiratory diseases are transmitted. Concurrently, with this appreciation, there have been a number of clinical investigations into the efficacy of protective devices such as face masks. This article will describe how the findings of such studies lead to a rethinking of the benefits of wearing a mask during the practice of dentistry. It will begin by describing new concepts relating to infection control especially personal protective equipment (PPE)………..

Click on the link above to read the whole article

Conclusions
The primary reason for mandating the wearing of face masks is to protect dental personnel from airborne pathogens. This review has established that face masks are incapable of providing such a level of protection. Unless the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, national and provincial dental associations and regulatory agencies publically admit this fact, they will be guilty of perpetuating a myth which will be a disservice to the dental profession and its patients. It would be beneficial if, as a consequence of the review, all present infection control recommendations were subjected to the same rigorous testing as any new clinical intervention. Professional associations and governing bodies must ensure the clinical efficacy of quality improvement procedures prior to them being mandated. It is heartening to know that such a trend is gaining a momentum which might reveal the inadequacies of other long held dental infection control assumptions. Surely, the hallmark of a mature profession is one which permits new evidence to trump established beliefs. In 1910, Dr. C. Chapin, a public health pioneer, summarized this idea by stating, “We should not be ashamed to change our methods; rather, we should be ashamed not to do so.” 36 Until this occurs, as this review has revealed, dentists have nothing to fear by unmasking.

“MASKS! Folks, let a surgeon of 30 years (a.k.a. me) teach you about MASKS. COVID 19 virus particle size averages 125 nanometers (O.125microns); the range is 0.06 microns to .14 microns; one needs an electron microscope to see a COVID 19 virus particle. The hoarded N 95 mask filters down to 0.3 microns. So. N95 masks block few, if any, virions (virus particles). This is a simple fact, so you just cannot argue against it. Other surgical masks, home-made masks and kerchiefs do the following: 1) the allow free passage both ways (in and out) of COVID 19 visions. 2) they become a warm, damp or moist reservoir of COVID 19 particles in asymptomatic ‘carriers” (estimated to be 85y. of all people tested). For surgeons, years of training, intimidation, and humiliation teach us to touch NOTHING but our surgical field. Lay people constantly touch, ro-arrange, and manipulate their “masks’, wonderfully inoculating thousands of virus particles onto their bare or (even worse, gloved) hands. Sa, these absurd masks ENCOURAGE the fomite transmission (‘infected” articles-to-hand-to face transmission of the virus). So, go ahead and allow idiots to delude and mislead you to the false sense of security–and danger–of masks! “


Have to share: Great information on mask-wearing…

From Mike Terry:


“I am an Industrial Hygienist. I actually am a respiratory protection expert. It is literally what I do for a living. Doctors are not experts on this subject at all. In fact, I actually write respiratory protection policies for labs and hospitals. A cloth face mask may reduce the distance of mucus droplets coming from your mouth but in truth, they have less than a 10% effectiveness when it comes to reducing a viral spread for several reasons.
1.) When someone coughs or sneezes through a piece of cloth those large droplets become aerosolized. The same viral load still exists it is just now on a smaller host. So basically instead of having a few busses traveling a long distance, you have a bunch of minivans traveling a short distance. This does not affect the life span of the virus. Whatever it lands on is still contaminated.
2.) Because whatever it lands on is still contaminated that brings us to the next point. So now you have an aerosol floating through the air and since it is smaller it stays in the air longer. Any person who walks through that invisible mist is going to have the virus land on them. That would not be as big of a deal since you now have the viral carrier so spread out and are far less likely to be contaminated right? Wrong! The person who walks through that mist is also wearing some kind of cloth face mask. Now that little bit of aerosol is stuck to their mask either by direct contact with the aerosol or by touch their hands to surfaces where it landed and touching their mask which people do A LOT! So now even though you have much less of the virus on you than if it were from a large mucus droplet you have it stuck to your face mask and are breathing in the smaller viral load over a much longer period of time and your chances of getting some form of respiratory illness actually go up. There are hundreds of scientific studies on this. There have been zero credible studies that suggest a cloth face mask will help stop the spread.
3.) Unsuitable PPE gives the ignorant wearer the same sense of security as wearing a proper respirator because they think they are protected and that person takes more risk and is less stringent about their other protection techniques such as hand washing. There are also hundreds of studies that show this.
4.) NIOSH, OSHA, NFPA, CDC, WHO, ACGIH, and many many University procedures all state do not wear cloth face masks as a covering to protect from viral or bacterial contamination. They do not protect you or the people around you PERIOD! The CDC only verbally changed their stance due to political influence and are in direct violation of their own policy.”

New CDC and WHO Study Proves “No Evidence” Face Masks Prevent Virus

There is so much debate over whether or not we should be wearing masks in order to fight C0VlD, but multiple scientific studies over the past decade have already settled this question. Not only do medical masks not prevent the spread of virus, but a 1995 study proves that wearing a cloth mask can put you at greater risk for infection. Ben Swann breaks down the science.

Carbon Dioxide Rebreathing in Respiratory Protective Devices: Influence of Speech and Work Rate in Full-Face Masks

Carmen L Smith  1 Jane L WhitelawBrian Davies Affiliations

Abstract

Carbon dioxide (CO2) rebreathing has been recognised as a concern regarding respirator use and is related to symptoms of discomfort, fatigue, dizziness, headache, muscular weakness and drowsiness. Previous investigations are limited by small sample size and have not evaluated the relationship between CO2 inhalation and phonic respiration (breathing during speech) in respiratory protective devices (RPDs). A total of 40 workers trained in the use of RPDs performed a graded exercise test on a cycle ergonometer that increased in workload every 5 min. During the third minute of each stage, participants read aloud a prepared text. Measures of mixed expired CO2 (PECO2), mixed inspired CO2 (PICO2) and respiration were monitored. The results showed that phonic respiration and low work rates contributed to significantly higher levels of CO2 rebreathing. Aiming to reduce CO2 exposure may result in improved wear time of RPDs. It is recommended that these findings be incorporated in technical specifications regarding human factors for RPDs.

Practitioner summary: Carbon dioxide (CO2) rebreathing in respiratory protective devices (RPDs) has been highlighted as a key concern regarding respirator use. However, the problem is relatively under researched. This paper presents novel findings on the impact of phonic respiration (breathing during speech) and CO2 concentrations in RPDs.

From the WHO: There is limited evidence that wearing a medical mask by healthy individuals in the households or among contacts of a sick patient, or among attendees of mass gatherings may be beneficial as a preventive measure.14-23 However, 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 prevent them from infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.

Masks-

Prolonged wearing of the surgical mask causes loss of intellect potential and cognitive performance due to a decrease in blood oxygen and subsequent brain hypoxia. Note – some changes may be irreversible.

“Report on surgical mask induced deoxygenation during major surgery” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18500410
“Seventy percent of the patients showed a reduction in partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2), and 19% developed various degrees of hypoxemia. Wearing an N95 mask significantly reduced the PaO2 level”
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15340662

“Wearing N95 masks results in hypooxygenemia and hypercapnia which reduce working efficiency and the ability to make correct decision.”

“Medical staff are at increased risk of getting ‘Severe acute respiratory syndrome’ (SARS), and wearing N95 masks is highly recommended by experts worldwide. However, dizziness, headache, and short of breath are commonly experienced by the medical staff wearing N95 masks. The ability to make correct decision may be hampered, too.”

Take off the masks people!

My daughter. 19 yrs old. Healthy. Frontline worker at a huge grocery store chain. Started feeling sick about two weeks ago. Side and back pain. Nausea.. Chest pain. Primary doc sent her for chest x-ray.. Something “lit up” on right side. Sent for MRI. Cat scan. Ultra sound of back and abdomen areas..NOTHING.. While at work was unable to breathe. Chest pain. Rushed to e.r. quarantined. Tested for covid. Young. By herself because no one can be with her. Turns out its pleurisy.. An inflection of the outside of the lining of the lungs. They basically tell her.. It’s because she has been wearing a mask for over 8 hours a day 5-6 days a week. Breathing in her own bacteria. Carbon dioxide.. Caused an infection. And now she is in severe pain. Has to be off work with no pay.. But you wont see that on social media! She’s 19. Healthy. And now is bed bound and struggling to breathe. Antibiotics. Steroids. Breathing treatments.


“How can a person be forced by any business or government entity to wear a mask (which affects the respiratory system) without having a physical exam by a licensed doctor who approves such an action?”

Science Says Healthy People Should Not Wear Masks

  • Masks reduce intake of oxygen, leading to carbon dioxide toxicity
  • Germs are trapped near your mouth and nose, increasing risk of infection
  • Wearing a mask causes you to touch your face more frequently
  • There is no scientific evidence that supports healthy people wearing masks
  • Masks obscure your facial features and impede normal social interaction
  • Masks make it hard for hearing-impaired people to understand you
  • Masks symbolize suppression of speech

The Governor has intentionally and knowingly committed severely egregious violations of the FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION, because he has a financial stake in mandating the wearing of masks, as he has a $one-billion dollar deal he publicly announced on The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, stating that the state would buy 200 million masks per month to help in the fight against the coronavirus. The Governor also told the public that California would be sourcing other emergency medical supplies from China. “One billion gloves, 500 million N95 masks, 200 million shields … We’re going to be sending chartered flights from China into the state of California already working with some of the largest logistics firms in the world with FedEx and UPS to do just that,” he promised, according to San Francisco ABC affiliate KGO-7.

Cover up: The lack of evidence for vaccinate or mask policies

Issue: BCMJ, vol. 58 , No. 10 , December 2016 , Pages 554, 556 Point Counterpoint By: Will Offley

When a public health policy is put into effect to reduce a risk to patients, best practice calls for evidence that the risk actually exists, consistent application of the policy, and an assessment of whether the policy achieves its stated goals. Failure to meet these criteria indicates the need to reconsider the policy. 

In 2012 British Columbia instituted a mandatory vaccinate or mask policy for all health care staff who receive an influenza vaccination. The policy’s stated purpose was “to prevent transmission [of influenza] from them to their patients.”[1]

This vaccinate or mask policy is not based on evidence, but on an assumption that hospital-acquired influenza is a significant threat to patients. It is predicated on the 24-hour period in which a person can be infected with the influenza virus but remain asymptomatic. However, recent studies have challenged this concern, determining that there is little if any evidence that infected individuals shed significant amounts of influenza virus in the 24-hour asymptomatic period following infection.[2]

A policy without evidence……

….Summary
Judged by its professed goals, vaccinate or mask is an utterly incoherent policy. Given its inconsistent and selective enforcement and its lack of universal application of basic infection control principles, it is clear that the policy cannot be shown to confer any benefit to patients. It should be discontinued.

Re: County Health Officer Order Regarding Mandatory Masks
Dear Board of Supervisors:
I write asking that you immediately walk back the recent proposal by the County Health Officer regarding mask-wearing. I will lead with my conclusion: (1) the proposal runs counter to accepted medical and scientific studies – including World Health Organization studies and the CDC’s recent study published last week which found “no significant reduction” in “transmission with the use of face masks” (2) the proposal puts county residents at risk of severe injury based on the multiplicity of medical studies showing mask-wearing leads to hypoxia which can precipitate fatal cardiac and other life-endangering events, and (3) the County Health Officer has neither the relevant credentials nor the judgment to have made this order.
By way of background: I am a veteran litigator, who previously represented Fortune 500 companies in hi-tech and environmental disputes, as well as advised municipalities not unlike yours, and I have also practiced a fair bit of litigation in the healthcare arena. I am thus quite familiar with the scientific studies in this context, as well as the law in this arena.

From OSHA personnel about Masks?
I am OSHA 10&30 certified. I know some of you are too. I don’t really know WHY OSHA hasn’t come forward and stopped the nonsense BUT
I wanna cover 3 things
• N95 masks and P95 masks with exhale ports
• surgical masks
• filter or cloth masks
Okay so upon further inspection OSHA says some masks are okay and not okay in certain situations.
If you’re working with fumes and aerosol chemicals and you give your employees the wrong masks and they get sick you can be sued.
• N95 masks and ported P95: are designed for CONTAMINATED environments. That means when you exhale through N95 the design is that you are exhaling into contamination. The exhale from P95 (ported) masks are vented to breathe straight out without filtration. They don’t filter the air on the way out. They don’t need to.
Conclusion: if you’re in Stewart’s and the guy with Covid has P95 mask his covid breath is unfiltered being exhaled into Stewart’s (because it was designed for already contaminated environments, it’s not filtering your air on the way out)
• Surgical Mask: these masks were designed and approved for STERILE environments. The amount of particles and contaminants in the outside and indoor environments where people are CLOGG these masks very Very quickly. The moisture from your breath combined with the clogged mask with render it “useless” IF you come in contact with Covid and your mask traps it You become a walking virus dispenser. Everytime you put your mask on you are breathing the germs from EVERYWHERE you went. They should be changed or thrown out every “20-30 minutes in a non sterile environment”
Cloth masks: today three people pointed to their masks as the walked by me entering Lowe’s. They said “ya gotta wear your mask BRO” I said very clearly “those masks don’t work bro, in fact they MAKE you sicker” the “pshh’d” me.
By now hopefully you all know CLOTH masks do not filter anything. You mean the American flag one my aunt made? Yes. The one with sunflowers that looks so cute? Yes. The bandanna, the cut up t-shirt, the scarf ALL of them offer NO FILTERING whatsoever. As you exhale you are ridding your lungs of contaminants and carbon dioxide. Cloth masks trap this carbon dioxide the best. It actually risks health. The moisture caught in these masks can become mildew ridden over night. Dry coughing, enhanced allergies, sore throat are all symptoms of a micro-mold in your mask.
Ultimate Answer: Ported P95 blows the virus into the air from a contaminated person and N95 holes are larger than the coronavirus and does not block particles that small. And most importantly, asymptomatic transmission is not happening anyway.
The surgical mask is not designed for the outside world and will not filter the virus upon inhaling through it. It’s filtration works on the exhale. (Like a vacuum bag it only works one way)
Cloth masks are WORSE than none.
The CDC wants us to keep wearing masks. The masks don’t work.
*Occupational Safety & Health Administration sited.
The top American organization for safety.
They regulate and educate asbestos workers, surgical rooms, you name it.
If your mask gives you security wear it, just know it is a false sense of security.
If stores stopped enforcing it no one would continue this nonsense.
==============================
If work requires you to wear a mask, OSHA requires that your employer verifies you are receiving a minimum of 19.5% oxygen level by law! Are your oxygen levels being monitored while at work? Are you experiencing dizziness and headaches? This is a written law NOT a recommendation! I guarantee if employees started citing law and demanding their employers follow the law then the masks would go away!


High heat, humidity can be a problem when wearing a mask outdoors, experts say

Health experts say it’s best to ditch the mask when walking around outside

“When you’re breathing through a mask you’re having to work a little bit harder to breathe in the first place, especially depending on how thick your mask is,” said Dr. David Price, chair of the department of family medicine at McMaster University in Hamilton. “And then the other thing is you’re rebreathing some of your air, so it’s heating it up a little bit.

“So you’ve got not only the heat on the outside, but now you’ve got the heat inside the mask too.”


Dangers of Wearing Masks in the Heat and Humidity


Protective Facemask Impact on Human Thermoregulation: An Overview

Raymond J. Roberge, Jung-Hyun Kim, Aitor CocaThe Annals of Occupational Hygiene, Volume 56, Issue 1, January 2012, Pages 102–112, https://doi.org/10.1093/annhyg/mer069

Abstract

The use of protective facemasks (PFMs) negatively impacts respiratory and dermal mechanisms of human thermoregulation through impairment of convection, evaporation, and radiation processes. The relatively minor reported increases in core temperature directly attributable to the wearing of PFMs suggest that associated perceptions of increased body temperature may have a significant psychological component or that regional or global brain temperature changes are involved. Modifications in PFM structure, components, and materials might allow for improved heat dissipation and enhanced compliance with use.


Harmful Effects of Rebreathing Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
OxyMask™ News

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a gas the body naturally produces as waste. We breathe in oxygen (O2) to fuel organs and tissues and the end product is CO2. The balance between these two gases is required for a healthy body. However, when we rebreathe CO2 it can have harmful and sometimes dangerous effects on the body. When CO2 levels are elevated in the body it is known as hypercapnia. Hypercapnia can occur for a number of reasons, one of which is rebreathing our own exhaled CO2. Rebreathing CO2 can lead to increased blood pressure, headaches, muscle twitches, rapid heart rate, chest pain, confusion, and fatigue. In extreme cases, if left untreated, hypercapnia can lead to organ damage and even have long standing effects on the brain.


Symptoms and Signs of Carbon Dioxide Poisoning

Doctor’s Notes on Carbon Dioxide Poisoning

Carbon dioxide poisoning (also called hypercapnia or hypercarbia) results from high levels of carbon dioxide in the blood. Carbon dioxide poisoning often occurs while scuba diving, from inadequate ventilation, inadequate breathing, a tight wetsuit, overexertion, regulator malfunction, deep diving, and contamination of the air supply with exhaled gases, which can cause a carbon dioxide buildup. Carbon dioxide levels in the blood may increase, causing shortness of breath and drowsiness, resulting in carbon dioxide toxicity.

Symptoms of carbon dioxide poisoning include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, rapid breathing, fast heart rate, and flushing (warmth, redness, or tingling of the skin). Symptoms of severe cases of carbon dioxide poisoning may include confusion, convulsions, and loss of consciousness.

Studies of Surgical Masks Efficacy

by Arthur Firstenberg
Cellphonetaskforce.org

As a person who went to medical school, I was shocked when I read Neil Orr’s study, published in 1981 in the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Dr. Orr was a surgeon in the Severalls Surgical Unit in Colchester. And for six months, from March through August 1980, the surgeons and staff in that unit decided to see what would happen if they did not wear masks during surgeries.

They wore no masks for six months, and compared the rate of surgical wound infections from March through August 1980 with the rate of wound infections from March through August of the previous four years.

And they discovered, to their amazement, that when nobody wore masks during surgeries, the rate of wound infections was less than half what it was when everyone wore masks.

Their conclusion: “It would appear that minimum contamination can best be achieved by not wearing a mask at all” and that wearing a mask during surgery “is a standard procedure that could be abandoned.”

I was so amazed that I scoured the medical literature, sure that this was a fluke and that newer studies must show the utility of masks in preventing the spread of disease.

But to my surprise the medical literature for the past forty-five years has been consistent: masks are useless in preventing the spread of disease and, if anything, are unsanitary objects that themselves spread bacteria and viruses.

Mask exemptions – what you need to know – Diverge Media

Mask Exemptions – Every single mask by-law across Canada allows for exemptions, and you can’t berate someone that you may think is taking advantage of this. This may make you uncomfortable especially if you believe masks are effective in reducing the transmission of the virus, but this is a reality Canadians need to understand and honour. We will also address the question surrounding the effectiveness of masks – do they protect you or others?

Here is a document I put together which has the Ontario Health Care Consent Act, The Canadian Charter of Rights, Ontario Human rights Code , The Unesco bioethics code and the Nuremburg code , which are applicable to mask and vaccines and are all being violated.

Jogger in Wuhan tries to stay fit but ends up in hospital

Note: All images in the article are for illustration purposes only

Wearing a face mask has become commonplace for people going outside during the pandemic, even if it causes discomfort and makes breathing difficult.

This past Thursday, 7th May, a 26-year-old man in Wuhan ended up with chest pains after he went for a jog while wearing a face mask………



2 Chinese boys die while wearing face masks in gym class: report – New York Daily News

Two schoolboys in China reportedly collapsed and suddenly died within a week of each other after they were forced to participate in gym class while sporting face masks.

The students, both 14 years old, were running laps as part of their schools’ required physical examination tests when they both unexpectedly dropped dead, according to Australian outlet 7News.

The pair of incidents, which occurred just six days apart, have prompted calls to cancel the term’s running exams amid coronavirus concerns and possible breathing difficulties brought on by the face masks — which are required to be worn by many governments worldwide in a bid to slow the illness’ spread.

One of the teens had only just begun the physical exam when he collapsed on April 24 at Dancheng Caiyun Middle School, located in the Henan Province in central China, according to his stepfather, who was identified as Mr. Li.

“It happened within two to three minutes during his PE class. He was wearing a mask while lapping the running track, then he suddenly fell backwards and hit his head on the ground,” Li told 7News.

His death certificate listed the cause as sudden cardiac arrest, but no autopsy was performed. Li believes the mask his son had been required to wear played a factor in his tragic passing.

“It was sunny and their PE class was in the afternoon when it was at least 20 degrees Celsius. It couldn’t have been comfortable running.”





Bottom line, this is why masks don’t work

  • The coronavirus is spread through tiny microdroplets emitted through coughs and sneezes that float through the air, or rest on surfaces and can remain infectious for several days. Standard flat surgical masks don’t give full coverage, so very small droplets suspended in the air can still get through.
  • If a person’s hand has come in contact with the virus, and they touch their mask to adjust it in the vicinity of their eyes, nose and mouth, it can transmit the disease.
  • Masks get saturated with moisture from the mouth and nose after about 20 minutes. Once they’re wet, they no longer form a barrier against viruses trying to come through or exit.

Forced face masking is a civil rights offense – Washington Times

Stores around the nation, with increasing frequency, are denying customers’ entry unless they first put on a mask.

The face-masking of America, at first a federal no-no, then a federal recommendation, has now trickled to state and local governments, and into the private business sector, as a mandate.

As a mandated muzzle on individuals.

This seems a blatant violation of an individual’s right to choose — of an individual’s right to self-govern. America, after all, isn’t a nation founded on collectivism, but rather individualism — on the right of individuals to exercise their God-given authorities, absent government tinkering and intrusion. What gives government the authority to order citizens to cover their faces?

What gives businesses the authority to serve as government’s enforcer on this same face masking matter?

Particularly when even the federal authorities only recommend, rather than order?


To all the mask endorsers out there!! STOP WEARING MASKS AND STOP SELLING/BUYING MASKS!! See the letter below addressed to the WHO from OCLA (which are embodied with Scientists/PhD’s who have proven relentlessly that MASKS ARE HARMFUL to the general public!! http://ocla.ca/ocla-letter-who/


Do Masks Even Work? Can You Be Forced To Wear One? Dr. Kaufman Weighs In

We are beginning to see more and more mask mandates being rolled out, which raises many questions. Does wearing a mask offer protection from the virus? Does wearing a mask for extended periods of time pose any risk to your health? Can the government or employers really make you wear a mask?

In this interview, Spiro is joined by Dr. Andrew Kaufman to discuss these issues in addition to another concerning aspect regarding mandated masks.

Are we being conditioned to accept other mandates? If they can make you wear a mask, what will they make you do next? Mandatory testing? Mandatory vaccination? Do not miss this important interview!

Costco Kevin Cuts Membership Card & Responds to Mask Controversy




Journalist John Ziegler recently tore into Ventura County Board of Supervisors on their tyrannical approach to the COVID-19/coronavirus narrative by implementing unlawful lockdowns and mandatory mask wearing. In the brief two minutes that Zeigler spoke, it was beautiful and he minced no words in his criticism of their tyranny and stupidity.




UNMASKING “OPERATION: GROCERY STORE” Do Americans with legitimate medical issues exempting them from wearing masks have the right to shop at their local grocery store? GATTO Project founder & activist, David Rodriguez, went on a mission with a group of medically exempt patrons and recorded the whole thing. He joins Del to discuss the other side of what some like to call “selfish” behaviour.


Watch “Facemask Exemptions: Facemask Science    – Dr Tim O’Shea” on YouTube All you have to say is you have a health condition where you can’t wear a mask and if they refuse service tell them you will report them to The Department of Justice for violating your rights and the company will be fined thousands

Legal Call to Action: Here it is, as spoken by David Martin in his video: “Social distancing and face masks – there is no scientific evidence that those work and more importantly there is specific evidence that those actually impair the healthy functioning of society.


LOCKDOWN LUNACY: the thinking person’s guide

By J.B. Handley

For anyone willing to look, there are so many facts that tell the true story, and it goes something like this:

Knowing what we know today about COVID-19’s Infection Fatality Rate, asymmetric impact by age and medical condition, non-transmissibility by asymptomatic people and in outdoor settings, near-zero fatality rate for children, and the basic understanding of viruses through Farr’s law, locking down society was a bone-headed policy decision so devastating to society that historians may judge it as the all-time worst decision ever made. Worse, as these clear facts have become available, many policy-makers haven’t shifted their positions, despite the fact that every hour under any stage of lockdown has a domino-effect of devastation to society. Meanwhile, the media—with a few notable exceptions—is oddly silent on all the good news. Luckily, an unexpected group of heroes across the political landscape—many of them doctors and scientists—have emerged to tell the truth, despite facing extreme criticism and censorship from an angry mob desperate to continue fighting an imaginary war.

My goal is to engage in known facts. You, the reader, can decide if all of these facts, when you put them together, equate to the story above.

This is for anyone and everyone living in fear and on your knees in the shadow of your oppressive masters in “government.” It’s not supposed to be this way. You know that, right?! Where is your sense of pride? Where is your common sense? Where is your discernment? What happened to the human spirit?! Are you truly alive or just drifting through a false reality created by those who have incrementally gained control your mind, your thoughts, your beliefs, and ultimately, your actions?

Q: What will your government and corporate controlled media tell you that you actually WON’T believe?!? Anything? Have you questioned this official narrative at ALL!?! Will you do anything and EVERYTHING you are told?! Why do you continue to TRUST people who have lied to you OVER and OVER for decades!?! Do you have ANY free will left at all!?! Do you have a MIND of your own?! Or have you become merely a programmed robot executing a set of instructions? Because that is EXACTLY how you are all acting. And you’re going to bring us ALL down with your willful ignorance and inability to challenge your beliefs. Yes, we ARE in this together. You just don’t understand what “THIS” is yet.

The TRUTH is there is NO scientific PROOF behind a contagious virus, a global “pandemic,” the RT/PCR tests creating the “illusion” that EVERYONE is “infected,” the need to wear face masks, social distance OR lock down society and destroy the economic engine and livelihoods of BILLIONS around the planet!! There is also ZERO legal or LAWFUL precedence for governments to have done ANY of what they have over the past 5 months (let alone the past century plus…!!), OR impose any mandates that dictate how you are to behave or dress. This is the most egregious deception that has ever been perpetrated in history and this is the greatest crime against humanity ever committed! It has only just begun, though. Wait until you see what is yet to come. It’s not pretty, but it CAN be stopped if people wake up to the reality of the situation. And, of all people from history to look to for what is happening right now in our world, it was Hitler and his confidants who warned us!!

He referred to “the Big Lie” in Mein Kampf when he spoke of, “the use of a lie so ‘colossal’ that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” People are simple minded and have been made ever more so over the generations. It is actually quite easy to fabricate lies such as this in today’s world with virtually complete control over the media by 5 major corporations. The damage has been done to the mind of the masses for well over a century now by hijacking education and media. All that needs to be REAL is the perception in the mind of the public for the propaganda to be effective and the synthesis (or pre-planned solution) to be realized. That is exactly what this is. How many have ever studied Hegel’s Dialectic at all?

Geobbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister went on to state about the English leadership that, “The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.” It happens over and over throughout history. We are only living through the latest incarnation. I mean, just look at how virtue-signaling and compliant the news is with everyone wearing their face diapers when they report “on location” to keep up the deception. They look ridiculous in spite of the truth coming out. They continue to double down on their lies. And will continue to do so until made to stop by an enlightened public who has had enough of the bullshit.

Have you thought maybe, just MAYBE, there is a more sinister agenda behind what we were told all the way back in March when we only needed “15 Days To Flatten The Curve?” Well…. HAVE YOU!?!?! Because there is. It’s NOW been 5 months!! It’s called “The Great Reset,” “The Fourth Industrial Revolution,” and “Agenda 21/SDG 2030.” It is a completely evil agenda that has been in the works for nearly 50 years now by the wealthiest people on this planet who absolutely hate the “unwashed masses.” It is THEY who are the most virulent racists on the planet!! Their end game is to gain full control over all of resources on this planet and the complete enslavement of humanity. You may want to look into that. Check out The Georgia Guidestones, too… And, while you’re at it, take off that STUPID face diaper you’re wearing!! You look absolutely ridiculous and it only shows your level of ignorance and complete submission to the false DOGMA of the new priest class!! 🙄😒😳

Let he who be deceived, be deceived.

In Lies We Trust


When truth becomes conspiracy, reality becomes an illusion. The world as we know it, is an illusion based on lies and deceit.
If the world seems insane, it’s because it is run by insane people.

Truth is knowledge. Knowledge is power.

Knowing the truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.

“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The human mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.” J. Edgar Hoover

The Cov!d pandora’s box.

100% proof that this is a planned scam-demic. This is the Covid pandora’s box.


Jason Christoff

Read that and then read that again…..and then click this link. https://bit.ly/3dHZscW Covid has already been proven completely fabricated out of thin air by media and government, in order to take more for themselves and leave less for you. A constitutional challenge lawsuit is also launching next week against all levels of the Canadian government because the Canadian government and Canadian media are also proven to have purposely colluded to fabricate the covid pandemic, based an absolutely nothing other than to terrorize Canadians and eliminate their freedoms. https://bit.ly/2MxdIcv
