    Don’t want to wear a mask on the beach this summer? Get your COVID-19 vaccine. New Yorkers may be able to stop wearing masks outdoors by the beginning of summer — and other cumbersome restrictions may also be lifted — so long as more people get their shots, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday.
  • Rand Paul Takes Another Shot At Fauci, Suggests Biden Should 'Burn' His Mask To Promote Vaccines

    Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul took another shot Wednesday at Dr. Anthony Fauci's insistence that vaccinated people should continue to wear masks before suggesting that President Joe Biden "burn" his in order to promote coronavirus vaccines. "You might get run over by a car, you might get hit by a meteor," Paul told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum during a Wednesday afternoon "The Story" appearance. "The science is about proving that things are happening. If Dr. Fauci can prove that people who are vaccinated are spreading the disease, I will listen to him. If he can prove that people like...

    If you're a Californian looking to attend a social function without being forced to wear a pesky face mask, there's good news: All you have to do is get yourself invited to the Oscars on Sunday. That's right, according to Variety, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that Oscar attendees in the state that has some of the most severe and onerous pandemic lockdowns in the nation will not have to wear masks during the telecast of the ceremony — well, at least as long as the cameras are rolling. But when it's time for...
  • UK Still Won’t Accelerate Re-Opening Despite COVID Deaths Dropping Below Road Accident Fatalities

    Data not dates? Despite new figures showing the daily number of COVID-19 deaths in the UK dropping below those from road accidents, the government is still refusing to accelerate the lifting of lockdown restrictions. The average number of daily deaths now stands at 25 a day with COVID cases dropping 94 per cent from the peak. On Monday, the UK recorded just four total deaths. “By comparison, the UK records an average of around five deaths from road accidents daily,” reports the Telegraph. The government has continually insisted it will prioritize “data not dates” in deciding when the measures should...
  • Much to Forgive: Adults have failed children in foisting unnecessary, harmful Covid-19 restrictions on them.

    “There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul,” Nelson Mandela famously said, “than the way in which it treats its children.” By that standard, our society now has the soul of an abusive parent. The pandemic has turned American adults, or at least the ones who make the rules, into selfish neurotics who have been punishing innocent children for over a year—and still can’t restrain themselves. When the pandemic began, the lack of knowledge about Covid-19 justified this behavior. That excuse has vanished. It became clear long ago that the virus is less dangerous to children than the...
  • Stanford Study Results: Facemasks are Ineffective to Block Transmission of COVID-19 and Actually Can Cause Health Deterioration and Premature Death

    A recent Stanford study released by the NCBI, which is under the National Institutes of Health, showed that masks do absolutely nothing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and their use is even harmful. NIH published a medical hypothesis by Dr. Baruch Vainshelboim (Cardiology Division, Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System/Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, United States). NOQ Report uncovered the study: Did you hear about the peer-reviewed study done by Stanford University that demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt that face masks have absolutely zero chance of preventing the spread of Covid-19? No? It was posted on the...
  • Fauci vs. DeSantis: Should Vaccinated People Need to Wear Masks?

    Dr. Anthony Fauci's blow-up with Jim Jordan generated a lot of attention last week, and understandably so. Fauci continued the dispute in his Sunday television appearances, insisting that COVID mitigation mandates have "nothing to do with liberties." Really? We all understand that Fauci is an infectious disease expert who will always err on the side of extreme caution and "public safety," as he sees it, which is why his perspective cannot be the only one being weighed by policy-makers. There are important competing interests very much at play, like economic considerations, mental health, and yes, liberties. Surely Fauci is not...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said that people who have been vaccinated against the CCP virus should “act immune” and pushed back against comments made by top U.S. health officials. DeSantis, a Republican, argued that if there is no change in mask requirements or social distancing, then people will view it as useless to get the vaccine. “My view is if you get a vaccine, the vaccines are effective, you’re immune, and so, act immune,” DeSantis told a crowd in Lakeland, Florida, over the weekend. “I think the messaging is horrific,” DeSantis continued to say. “I think the messaging should be,...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will no longer wear a face mask as he walks the U.S. Capitol and goes to the Senate floor after being fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to a report. “At this point, I’ve been vaccinated. Everybody working in the Senate has been vaccinated,” Cruz told CNN on Thursday. Cruz has followed the footsteps of a fellow senator, Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who also ditched his mask—which isn’t a requirement for members in the Senate, but it is for those in the House. Paul, 58, unlike Cruz, hasn’t been fully vaccinated against the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus,...

    Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran is asking public school districts across the state to drop mask mandates for the upcoming school year, saying that it has no impact whether or not students and teachers wear masks on campus. “We ask that districts, which currently are implementing a mandated face-covering policy, revise their policy to be voluntary for the 2021-2022 school year,” Corcoran wrote in an April 14 letter sent to district superintendents. In Florida, the decision on mask mandates during the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic are made by individual school district boards. Neither Corcoran nor Gov. Ron DeSantis...

    Michigan’s Thumb region is the hottest of U.S. hot spots for coronavirus right now. But at Mark’s Barbershop in the small downtown of Sandusky, masks are optional. “Just so you know, you don’t have to wear that if you don’t want to,” owner Mark Heberling says as a masked visitor walks through door. Across the street at the Downtown Deli, an sign at the entry says: “If we see you without a mask, we will assume you have a medical condition and we will welcome inside.” The same philosophy holds true down the road at the Sandusky Family Diner, a...

    Vaccinations or not, Dr. Fauci wants everyone to continue with lock down behavior and, most especially, to keep wearing masks. It’s safer that way. Meanwhile, a San Francisco publication says we must keep wearing masks because race- based vaccine inequities make it rude to cast them off. Underneath this specious reasoning is the leftists’ desperate desire to erase our individuality with masks. As we’ve noted at American Thinker, there’s increasing evidence that masks not only aren’t helpful, they’re counterproductive, as well as being dangerous and dirty. Nevertheless, leftists will not let go of their mask obsession. Fauci, of course, is...

  • Mask-Wearing Represents Fear and Blind Obedience, Not Science

    When I see people walking outside, often alone with no one anywhere near them, wearing a mask, my primary reactions are disappointment and sadness. I am disappointed because I expected better from my fellow Americans. I never thought most Americans would be governed by irrational fears and unquestioning obedience to authority. I have come to realize that I had a somewhat romanticized view of my countrymen. Had you told me a year ago that nearly every American in nearly every metropolitan area would cover their faces for over a year because one man, one political party and the media told...
