    Here are a few exchanges that caught the attention of YouTube’s censors: DeSantis at one point in the video asked if it was necessary for kids to wear masks in school. Dr. Kulldorff in response said “children should not wear face masks, no. They don’t need it for their own protection and they don’t need it for protecting other people, either.” The video, which was removed on Wednesday, was of a recent roundtable discussion DeSantis moderated on the global response to the pandemic. DeSantis was joined by Oxford epidemiologist Dr. Sunetra Gupta, Harvard professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff, and Dr. Scott...

    Children attending summer camp and swimming pool recreation programs this summer will be required to wear face masks and social distance as part of the Wolf administration COVID-19 mitigation efforts. Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration on Tuesday issued updated COVID-19 guidance for summer camps, essentially reinforcing health and safety protocol for summer camps, youth summer programs, and public swimming pools. The guidance essentially remains unchanged for the upcoming year. Staff and children age 2 and older must wear face coverings during child care and summer program activities. Children will be permitted to remove their face masks when they are eating or...

    Around the world, every minute of every day, three million masks are tossed out. Let that sink in. THREE million masks are tossed out every MINUTE. Every single day, on average, a little over four billion — with a “b” — masks are thrown out.
  • Horowitz: Masks are experimental medical devices that must be optional, according to law Emergency Use Authorization

    03/29/2021 7:14:45 PM PDT · by ransomnote · 13 replies ^ | March 26, 2021 | DANIEL HOROWITZ
    Just like the COVID vaccines, use of masks (instead of respirators) to block transmission of a virus was only authorized as experimental use. As such, according to law, it must be optional. If we are going to passively allow governors and governments to make this medical device mandatory, what is to stop them from making the vaccine mandatory?As I've mentioned before, both the FDA and OSHA have made it clear over the years that only respirators, not masks, are considered valid PPE to block transmission of a respiratory virus. Which is why mask manufacturers must continue to place a disclaimer...

    Dr. Shanna Swan, a professor of Environmental Medicine & Public Health at Mount Sinai Health System, has warned in a new book that phthalates, a chemical commonly used in the manufacturing of plastics, can shrink penises and decrease male fertility. A study listed in the National Center for Biotechnology Information, which operates under the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, found that the microplastics used in the manufacturing of Covid face masks contain a number of toxic chemicals, including the penis-shrinking phthalates. Dr. Swans’s book “Count Down: How Our Modern World Is Threatening Sperm Counts, Altering...

    Pennsylvania’s health secretary said Monday that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no longer have to wear a face mask in certain indoor situations, but still should wear one in public. It marks a revision of Pennsylvania’s mask-wearing order issued Nov. 17 and is based on revised guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to the revised CDC guidelines, people who are fully vaccinated can resume: Visiting with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or having to social distance; Visiting with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low-risk of COVID-19...

    Former FDA Commissioner Says Social Distancing Mandate ‘Wasn’t Based on Clear Science’Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said that the six-foot social distancing mandate that was employed across much of the United States and the world to deal with the CCP virus pandemic “wasn’t based on clear science.”“This six-foot distancing requirement has probably been the single costliest mitigation tactic that we’ve employed in response to COVID … and it really wasn’t based on clear science … we should have re-adjudicated this much earlier,” he said in an interview with CNBC. In the midst of relaxation of CCP (Chinese...

    Any mother will tell you that infants love staring at faces. It isn't just parental wishful thinking, either; studies show that babies, even those less than an hour old, tend to stare at face-like images longer than at any other pattern. At as early as four months, babies' brains already process faces at nearly adult levels, even while other images are still being analyzed in lower levels of the visual system. The results fit, Farzin pointed out, with the prominent role human faces play in a baby's world.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rolled out some guidelines for exercising, and this week NBC News explained them for us. Among the most notable guidelines, as NBC emphasized, is the charge to wear a mask while you’re exercising inside at the gym. Based on a study of a gym-related COVID-19 breakout in Chicago in the late summer of 2020, the CDC concluded, “To reduce SARS-CoV-2 transmission in exercise facilities, employees and patrons should wear a mask, even during high-intensity activities (10) while ≥6 ft apart.” Follow the Science? Considering many careful CDC rule-followers pride themselves on “following the...

    Cotton flannel (left) and polyester (right). (E.P. Vicenzi/Smithsonian Museum/NIST) ================================================================ While some still quibble over wearing masks a year into the pandemic, scientists have gotten on with working out exactly what strategy is best - and cotton face masks just received another tick of approval. Various studies have tested different material combinations and health authorities such as the World Health Organization and the CDC recommend cloth masks for the general public, based on their conclusions. But some of these studies overlooked an important real-world factor - these face covering fabrics end up damp from our breath. Now, a team of...

    Health chiefs in Belgium are concerned that 15 million fabric masks given to pharmacists may be toxic and cause pneumonia. According to a preliminary report carried out by Sciensano, the Belgian Institute for Public Health, the masks contain nanoparticles of silver and titanium dioxide that when inhaled could damage the respiratory tract. The face masks were made in Asia by Luxembourg-based company Avrox.

Masks “don’t work,” reveal a panel of doctors in LifeSiteNews’ recent “Unmasking COVID-19,” conference, who warned about how mask mandates are being used to bring about “Nazi-like” control of the populace.

    My daughter’s friend was recently alarmed when she was told that her two-year-old must wear a mask in preschool. Her little girl already struggles to make herself understood, and her mother worries that the mask will make it harder for her daughter to be understood and that she will have trouble telling what her masked peers and teachers are saying. Now that the face mask has become the essential accoutrement of our lives, the COVID pandemic has laid bare our fundamental need to see whole faces. Could it be that babies and young children, who must learn the meaning of...

    Biden won't reopen schools, but he will force 2-year-olds to wear masks. We're all in this together. Except for those of us who fly Air Force One. You may have come across the horrible stories of families being kicked off planes because they couldn't get a 2-year-old to wear a mask. There have been a bunch of these cases. Like this one. A Colorado mother who said she and her family were kicked off a United Airlines flight after her 2-year-old daughter refused to keep a mask on told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday that “the experience was absolutely...

    New York’s Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo is the poster child for the most macabre chutzpah we have ever seen. Having mismanaged his state’s Wuhan China virus pandemic to the point of herding COVID-19 patients into nursing homes where even he admits it spread like a wildfire through dry grass. Yet he blames everyone but himself for his state’s carnage, has written a book bizarrely claiming to be his state’s savior, and even won an Emmy for his daily bloviating press conferences. Ir should have been for best performance in a horror show. Now we know the carnage and death he...

An infectious disease expert who served on President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 Advisory Board during the presidential transition says wearing two face masks as a precautionary measure against COVID-19 may actually do more harm than good. Michael Osterholm said on NBC’s “Meet The Press” that double masking could raise the chances of becoming infected with the virus. “When we talk about double masking, remember what we’re really talking about is just trying to prevent the virus from being excreted by me into the...

    "The coverings need to be at least two or more layers of breathable fabric secured to the head with ties, ear loops or elastic bands," CNN reports. The Center for Disease Control has issued a new coronavirus order requiring DOUBLE masks to be worn for all forms of public transportation in the United States. From CNN: The CDC announced an order late Friday that will require people to wear a face mask while using any form of public transportation, including buses, trains, taxis, airplanes, boats, subways or ride-share vehicles while traveling into, within and out of the US.

  • Six More Questions about Masks Our Overlords Refuse to Answer (Part II)

    Obviously, the six questions our mask-cultist overlords absolutely refuse to give a clear answer for - because there is no clear answer - was just the tip of the iceberg. Just like almost every other botched "response" these jokers have attempted over the course of this pandemic, almost nothing about forced public masking makes sense, and yet they stubbornly cling to it like it’s their newfound religion. The latest evidence they’re are full of Schiff comes as Dr. Fauci and others now advise people to wear two and EVEN THREE masks to "protect" themselves and others from coronavirus. Of course,...

    Frustrations over some lawmakers’ refusal to wear masks to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives chamber brought action to brief halt on Tuesday. House Democratic Leader Joanna McClinton of Philadelphia pointed out to House Speaker Bryan Cutler, R-Lancaster County, that she counted over 30 members on the House floor who were unmasked in violation of the bipartisan-backed policy approved last summer requiring face coverings on the House floor during session. Cutler, standing at the rostrum looking down over the chamber with a mask covering his face, said, “Obviously I have a slightly different viewpoint being...

    While some people are still pushing back against wearing a face mask in public despite strong evidence that covering the nose and mouth helps protect the wearer and those around them from COVID-19 infection, others are taking their level of protection one step further by doubling up and wearing two. Layered face masks have been spotted on everyone from President Joe Biden to New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick to essential workers on public transportation and at the grocery store. But is wearing two face masks actually more effective than wearing one? And is it even safe to layer up?...
