The weaponization of masks to “fight” COVID-19 might be the sickest actions of the Left with maybe the exception of exposing us all to the virus through the thousands of illegals pouring across our southern border. We have NO idea how many and which immigrants are positive. We DO know that 20% of the immigrant kids tested after they are assigned to a facility are positive.
Joe tells us to forget about the plague HE is sending throughout the nation purposely through these illegals. Instead he demands we protect the world by wearing cloth masks again — masks that don’t work. In fact, they hurt us. Young children being forced to wear masks is of particular concern.
Prior to facemask mandates as an alleged preventive for COVID-19 infection and transmission, such masks were infrequently worn in hospitals and other medical facilities. They were only used in operating theaters or for visiting seriously ill patients in order to prevent infection from spit or droplets into open wounds or to partially protect visitors from acquiring and transmitting pathogens more dangerous than COVID-19. Many doctors and nurses have stated that for decades, if not longer, staff wearing medical masks were an uncommon sight in healthcare facilities other than as mentioned.
No studies were needed to justify this practice since most understood viruses were far too small to be stopped by the wearing of most masks, other than sophisticated ones designed for that task and which were too costly and complicated for the general public to properly wear and keep changing or cleaning. It was also understood that long mask-wearing was unhealthy for wearers for common sense and basic science reasons.
There has been an international flood of lies about mask-wearing in order to justify the bizarre and disturbing situation we have today of almost everyone wearing masks in many regions, inside and outside healthcare facilities, in schools with children of all ages, during sports events, in churches, in grocery stores and all commercial facilities, while driving and walking, and long after peak infection has passed. It has also continued long after it was discovered that COVID-19 was not nearly as dangerous as we were led to believe, that many of the mitigation policies caused serious damage of all kinds, including many deaths. Long after prevention and treatment protocols were discovered and used with great success, and the very best ones were often criminally suppressed by government and health authorities, we’re still demanded to wear masks.
The unnecessary and greatly exaggerated fear during the first few months of this pandemic, which would never have been labeled a pandemic until the WHO unilaterally changed the pandemic definition to include much less dangerous pathogens, was manipulated to continue unlike past experiences with similar virus outbreaks. There have been numerous lies fed to the public by the WHO, national and regional government leaders, and health bureaucrats and the media, and many other institutions. This all has certainly been to maintain fear until the large majority of the public has been injected with the poorly tested, unnecessary, and dangerous COVID-19 vaccines for which we have no evidence of their long-term safety.
President Joe Biden has consistently presented numerous outrageous lies to justify his extreme COVID-19 and vaccine policies. Paul Elias Alexander, Ph.D., wrote an article published on LifeSite that summarizes all of the most prominent and damaging lies that have generated fear. This bevy of lies caused a large percentage of Americans and citizens of other nations to accept the COVID-19 vaccines in order to allegedly be able to return to a normal life. Included in Alexander’s list are the lies related to mask mandates.
An acquaintance of Paul Alexander prepared the list below of 47 studies confirming that masks are useless in preventing COVID-19 infection and transmission. Please see a second list below of 32 studies confirming the negative health effects caused by frequent mask-wearing, especially for young children. This has been a growing concern in recent months as the dangerous health and emotional effects, especially on children, (who are at almost zero risk of COVID-19 harm) are becoming more pronounced and deeply worrisome.
Various Facemask Studies Prove Their Ineffectiveness
1. Surgical mask/cloth face mask studies: Community and Close Contact Exposures Associated with COVID-19 Among Symptomatic Adults ≥18 Years in 11 Outpatient Health Care Facilities — United States, July 2020
The CDC performed a study that showed that 85 percent of those who contracted COVID-19 during July 2020 were mask wearers. Just 3.9 percent of the study participants never wore a mask.
2. Facial protection for healthcare workers during pandemics: a scoping review
This study used 5462 peer-reviewed articles and 41 grey literature records.
Conclusion: “The COVID-19 pandemic has led to critical shortages of medical-grade PPE. Alternative forms of facial protection offer inferior protection. More robust evidence is required on different types of medical-grade facial protection. As research on COVID-19 advances, investigators should continue to examine the impact on alternatives of medical-grade facial protection.”
So how are your cloth and surgical masks working again if EVEN medical-grade alternatives are failing?

3. Physical interventions to interrupt or reduce the spread of respiratory viruses
“There is evidence that wearing a mask probably makes little or no difference to the outcome of laboratory-confirmed influenza compared to not wearing a mask”
Study article: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33215698/
4. Disposable surgical face masks for preventing surgical wound infection in clean surgery
“We included three trials, involving a total of 2106 participants. There was no statistically significant difference in infection rates between the masked and unmasked group in any of the trials”
Study article: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27115326/
5. Disposable surgical face masks: a systematic review
Two randomized controlled trials were included involving a total of 1453 patients. In a small trial, there was a trend towards masks being associated with fewer infections, whereas in a large trial there was no difference in infection rates between the masked and the unmasked group.

Rather than giving a summation of each study of the 47 we have for you, we list them below in hyperlink format. I recommend you access these when you can, if for no other reason to give yourself a comfort level to believe that at least this ONE part of medical information being pounded into our heads nonstop by the leaders of the Medical Industrial Complex is false: No facemask other than an N95 mask with a respirator can effectively prevent transmission of COVID-19.
Feel free to use these links, copy the list and distribute yourself, or just keep it for your reference. It’s staggering to believe the U.S. Government would so vehemently demand us to do anything at all that certainly does NOT help us but, in many cases, actually HURTS us!
The Balance of Cloth Mask Efficacy Studies regarding Transmissibility of COVID-19
That is a fairly inclusive potpourri of links to SPECIFIC laboratory tests that give evidence, data, summary, and medical perspective that confirm: masks short of an N95 mask-with-respirator there is NO other mask in production today that can effectively stop the transmission of COVID-19 from a COVID-19 infected person to an uninfected person and vice versa.
All that is left to ascertain are two things: Why then is there such insistence from medical experts from top to bottom of the U.S. and international healthcare systems demanding that masks be worn? Secondly, since they do NOT work effectively and their considerable negative impact on the respiratory and immune systems of those who wear them, why would medical professionals continue to insist for all to wear masks?
If I was a betting person, I’d bet there is some sinister and coordinated explanation for all of this. And it probably has something to do with instilling fear in us all in sufficient measure to cause tens of millions of people from every race, every nation, and every economic class to cede our rights to privacy, types of healthcare for our family members, and our abilities to exercise our first, second, and sixth amendment rights to our government for the cause of “Doing the right thing” and “Protecting all from this evil virus, COVID-19.”
I’d bet that IF I was a betting man. I’m not. But I WILL bet this one thing: we only know a tiny snippet of what is REALLY underway among the political leaders of our country and other major countries around the World.
But I’m NOT a betting man.
I’ll turn my laptop off, grab a cup of tea and turn television news on to watch as our government disassembles the Constitution in the name of “righteousness in healthcare to save the World.”
