Face masks –Medical Protection, or Badge of Obedience?

Martin Hanson

I don’t normally watch TVNZ’s Seven Sharp, but on 5th October 2021 we were told that an immunologist would be on the programme to debunk certain ‘Covid myths’.

One such ‘myth’ was the belief that natural immunity is superior to vaccine-induced immunity. In response, clinical immunologist Dr. Maia Brewerton said that natural immunity to Covid-19 is not as good as the vaccine.

No evidence was given. Just an assertion.

As an ex-science teacher, I found Dr Brewerton’s statement to be unsatisfactory, for the following simple reason: the vaccine can only generate antibodies to a single viral antigen (the ‘spike’ protein), whereas the whole virus particle reportedly contains 29 proteins, which can therefore evoke the production of a correspondingly greater diversity of antibodies.

So, if the part of the viral RNA that codes for the spike protein RNA undergoes a mutation, the vaccine-induced antibody may be unable to bind to the mutant antigen, but with natural immunity there will a range of ‘back-up’ antibodies that can bind to the other proteins of the virus.

I wrote to Dr. Brewerton to make this point, asking her if she could provide evidence for her Seven Sharp statement.

I received no reply.

This was particularly disappointing because we had repeatedly been urged by the authorities to ‘accept the science’.

One might think that such a single experience may not be particularly significant; Dr. Brewerton might be snowed under with work. But soon after Dr. Brewerton’s appearance, Stuff invited readers to submit questions on Covid, so I sent a similar question to the one I had asked of Dr. Brewerton.

Again, I received no reply.

I was beginning to sense that the authorities might not be too keen to take their own advice to ‘go with the science’, since the very essence of science is examination and questioning of evidence.

This feeling was solidified in August 2022, when I came across a paper co-authored by Professor Michael Baker, an epidemiologist at the University of Otago, who has been one of chief advocates for the wearing of masks during Covid-19. The paper was titled “The Covid-19 experience in Aotearoa New Zealand and other comparable high-income jurisdictions and implications for managing the next pandemic phase”.

In the article I could find no evidence supporting the efficacy of masks in the Covid-19 ‘pandemic’, so I wrote to Prof. Baker, saying that I had looked for, but had failed to find, any research evidence supporting the efficacy of mask wearing and hoped that he might be able to provide it.

Again, I received no reply.

An essential element in science is the challenging of established ideas in robust, untrammelled debate, in an environment that encourages questioning. Without such openness, science can be misused by powerful interests as a means of disguising misinformation as information.

In the complete absence of evidence-based debate in the media, I was forced to go elsewhere to find out what’s going on. One such source is Ian Miller’s “Unmasked: The Global Failure of Mask Mandates”. Using data from North America, Europe, and parts of South America, and county level in the U.S., Miller presents a compelling case that masks have failed their most significant test – to significantly reduce transmission of Covid. Indeed, it’s clear that masks have no health utility at all, but are an emblem of obedience to power.

In March 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S. Government’s chief medical expert was interviewed on 60 Minutes, and he unequivocally expressed his opinion on masks:

There’s no reason to be walking around with masks.. . . . .when you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And, often, people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.”

Until his recent retirement, Dr. Fauci has spent his half-century-career as the US Government’s chief medical expert, whose calm, avuncular charm inspired confidence in millions, so his word on the airwaves carried a lot of weight.

Though his was the most familiar voice, organisations such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) prior to Covid, had expressed similar reservations on the utility of masks.

In February 2020, the CDC issued a document called “Community Mitigation Guidelines to Prevent Pandemic Influenza – United States, 2017”. It drew on the findings of nearly 200 research articles published over the years 1990 and 2006, and was specifically concerned with non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPI’s) by which people could protect themselves in the event of an epidemic.

The NPI’s the CDC document described for influenza pandemics included voluntary home quarantine of exposed household members and use of face masks in community settings when ill (emphasis added). There was no recommendation that masks should be used by healthy people in the general population.

The CDC was not the only prominent public health body to update its pandemic planning. In 2019 the WHO produced a document “Non-pharmaceutical Public Health Measures for Mitigating the Risk and Impact of Epidemic and Pandemic Influenza”. The first comment on the available evidence was hardly justification for subsequent compulsory masking in public places [emphasis added]:

The evidence base on the effectiveness of NPIs in community settings is limited, and the overall quality of evidence was very low for most interventions. There have been a number of high-quality randomized controlled trials (RCTs) demonstrating that personal protective measures such as hand hygiene and face masks have, at best, a small effect on influenza transmission …”

And in the United Kingdom’s Department of Health issued a guidebook titled “UK Influenza Pandemic Preparedness Strategy 2011” which, in point 4.15, said [emphasis added]:

Although there is a perception that the wearing of facemasks by the public in the community and household setting may be beneficial, there is in fact very little evidence of widespread benefit from their use in this setting. Facemasks must be worn correctly, changed frequently, removed properly, disposed of safely and used in combination with good respiratory, hand, and home hygiene behaviour in order for them to achieve the intended benefit. Research also shows that compliance with these recommended behaviours when wearing facemasks for prolonged periods reduces over time.”

It’s clear, then, that pre-Covid, public health authorities were unconvinced of the utility of mask-wearing by the general public. So, one is entitled to wonder why, soon after the WHO announced that Covid-19 had pandemic status, governments in North America, Europe, and Australasia began to ‘encourage’ people to wear masks in indoor public places. This was achieved by a combination of legislation and publicly expressed statements by ‘experts’.

In some cases the language was hyperbolic, verging on blood-curdling. In an interview on Newshub in July 2022 Prof. Michael Baker said:

“If you go out when you have this infection and infect your friends and family…you are going to kill some people – just like drinking and driving. We need a massive shift in thinking,”

In my e-mail to Prof. Baker, I had mentioned that I had been unable to find any evidence to support enforced wearing of masks in indoor public places. Since then I have come across two research papers, the most recent showing an investigation into the effects of masking by Beny Spira, Associate Professor of Infectious Disease at the University of São Paulo in the Journal Cureus, Journal of Medical Science.

The research, titled Correlation Between Mask Compliance and COVID-19 Outcomes in Europe, and published April 19, 2022, analysed the correlation between mask usage against morbidity and mortality rates in the 2020-2021 winter in Europe.

Data from 35 European countries on morbidity, mortality, and mask usage during a six-month period were analysed. They found that countries with high levels of mask compliance did not perform better than those with low mask usage. On the contrary, there was a positive (though not strong) correlation between mask usage and mortality, suggesting that mask use was associated with slightly greater risk of death.

Of course, correlation does not prove causation, but these results are, or should be, cause for reflection by the authorities. But it seems not.

Whereas the Beny Spira study was retrospective, studying possible effects of mask-wearing in whole populations, a prospective study follows the fate of samples of volunteers, some of whom wore masks and others who did not.

A particularly important study by scientists at the University of Copenhagen during April and May 2020 was published in the academic journal Annals of Internal Medicine. It cast doubt on policies that force healthy individuals to wear face coverings in hopes of limiting the spread of COVID-19. The New York Times reported that…

“Researchers in Denmark reported on Wednesday that surgical masks did not protect the wearers against infection with the coronavirus in a large randomized clinical trial.”

The experiment involved over 6,000 participants who had tested negative for Covid-19 immediately prior to the experiment. Half the participants were given surgical masks and asked to wear them at all times in public places; the other, control half, were instructed to not wear masks. After a month, participants were tested for Covid-19 and for antibodies against the virus.

The Times reported that of the 4,860 participants who finished the experiment, 42 people in the mask group, or 1.8 percent, got infected, compared with 53 in the unmasked group, or 2.1 percent. The difference was not statistically significant.

Dr. Henning Bundgaard, lead author of the experiment and a physician at the University of Copenhagen, told the Times the results of his research were clear.

“Our study gives an indication of how much you gain from wearing a mask,” Bundgaard said. “Not a lot.”

Surprisingly, or perhaps (in view of what follows) unsurprisingly, the most elite medical journals – The Lancet, The New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association – all refused to publish the paper.

Though the study’s researchers have been reticent about their results, some have hinted that it was their conclusions rather than their methodology that lay behind the rejections. Christian Torp-Pedersen, professor and chief physician at the research department at North Zealand Hospital, told Denmark’s Berlingske Daily:

We can’t start discussing what they are dissatisfied with. For if so, we must also explain what the study showed. And we do not want to discuss this until it has been published.”

When asked when the study would be published, one of its researchers, Thomas Benfield, Professor of infectious disease at the University of Copenhagen replied:

As soon as a journal is brave enough to accept the paper.”

In their paper, the Danish scientists described their findings as ‘inconclusive’, yet it seemed that their failure to produce evidence to support the official narrative was enough for the most élite journals to refuse to publish it.

Anyone who was cynical enough to suspect that discouragement of open debate was not confined to these journals would have found support for this ‘conspiratorial’ view from two leading Oxford University academics, Carl Heneghan, professor of evidence-based medicine, and Dr Tom Jefferson, a Clinical epidemiologist and Senior Associate Tutor, when they published an article in the Spectator magazine on Nov 19, 2020. The article was titled: ‘Landmark Danish study shows face masks have no significant effect.’

In quoting the Danish findings, Heneghan and Jefferson added: “As a result, it seems that any effect masks have on preventing the spread of the disease in the community is small.”

But then Facebook warned that the article was ‘false information’ claiming that it had been ‘checked by independent fact-checkers’

An angry Prof Heneghan told 70,000 followers on Twitter: ‘I’m aware of this happening to others – what has happened to academic freedom and freedom of speech? There is nothing in this article that is false.’

Such attempts to shut down views contrary to the official narrative should come as no surprise, especially in light of recent revelations about what amounts to ‘public-private censorship’ of free speech.

The revelations began soon after billionaire Elon Musk bought Twitter, in which he pledged to release internal documents that would reveal how the previous owners of Twitter had suppressed free speech. The files were released for examination by two independent journalists, Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss. In an interview on Fox News, Taibbi said:

I think the major revelation of the Twitter files so far is that we’ve discovered an elaborate bureaucracy of what you might call public-private censorship. Basically, companies like Twitter have a system by which they receive ten tens of thousands of requests for action on various accounts, typically through the DHS [Department of Home Security] and FBI, but these requests were coming from basically every agency in the government. We’ve seen them from the HHS, from the Treasury, from the DOD [Department of Defence], even from the CIA, and they will send basically long lists of accounts in Excel spreadsheet files and ask for action on those accounts. And in many cases, Twitter is complying.”

So it’s not too much of a stretch to think that governments have been using Twitter to stifle public dissent over masks.

And it’s not just censorship that’s been the only tool in the box; even more has been the deliberate stoking up of fear, as Laura Dodsworth explains in an introduction to her book A State of Fear. In an introductory article to her book she gives some examples of things to be afraid of. A small sample:

  • Being tall: “People over 6ft have double the risk of coronavirus, study suggests” (DailyTelegraph 28 July 2020)
  • Being bald: “Bad news for baldies as new US study finds they’re 40% more at risk of coronavirus. New research has found a strange link between male baldness and the severity of the virus showing men without hair are more likely to end up in hospital.” (Daily Star, July 23, 2020).
  • Owning a dog and taking home supermarket deliveries: “Dog-owners face 78% higher risk of catching Covid-19 – and home grocery deliveries DOUBLE the risk, study finds.” (Mailonline 17 November 2020).
  • Being male: “Is testicle pain potentially a sign of Covid? 49-year-old Turkish man who had no other symptoms is diagnosed with the virus” (Mailonline 18 November 2020) and
  • Erectile dysfunction: “COVID-19 could cause erectile dysfunction in patients who have recovered from the virus, doctor warns” (Daily Mail, Dec 6, 2020)
  • Your toes: “Coronavirus: People who contract COVID may develop red and swollen toes which turn purple, say scientists” (Sky News UK 29 October, 2020

Taken individually, these might be amusing, but together, they are part of “a panoply of doom-mongering headlines”.

No doubt some will say that Dodsworth is a ‘conspiracy theorist’, but her allegations are confirmed by UK Government publications. On 22nd March 2020, SPI-B, the behavioural science sub-group of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), published a document titled “Options for increasing adherence to social distancing measures”, advocating the use of applied psychology to influence social behaviour. Though the focus of the document was on social distancing rather than masks, the intention to use fear is clear:

“The perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging. To be effective this must also empower people by making clear the actions they can take to reduce the threat.”

Moreover, Option 2 of Appendix B recommends using the media “to increase sense of personal threat” [emphasis added].

The cynical use of behavioural psychology to manipulate the attitudes and behaviour of populations has not been restricted to the U.K.; it’s been international. Here in New Zealand, in the early days of the pandemic, Jacinda Ardern’s use of the phrase ‘team of 5 million’ was a masterstroke.

But while this might have worked with a fearful, apathetic, naïve, and gullible public, masks and lockdown rules were flouted by some of our leaders in New Zealand, who didn’t see the need for such petty restrictions.

Chief among these was Siouxsie Wiles, the 2021 Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year, and a key adviser to Jacinda Ardern. On Sept 18, 2021 Radio New Zealand’s Nine to Noon interviewed her.

“Now that we know Covid-19 is airborne, stay away from people who aren’t in your bubble. With new knowledge that Covid-19 is airborne, that’s no longer something safe to do. Please don’t go out and chat with a friend while you are out. Don’t hang around and have a chat, connect in other ways. We’ve got phones, we’ve got Skype, we’ve got Zoom…we need to physically disconnect for a little while,” she said.

“Stay away from people.”

The trouble is, Wiles wasn’t following her own advice. On September 3, 2021, while Auckland was still in Level Four lockdown, she was observed “hanging around and having a chat” with a journalist at Judges Bay, Parnell.

Even more damning, the whole episode was recorded on video, in which Wiles was shown sitting in close proximity to the journalist, and neither was wearing a mask, in clear breach of her own and the government’s advice and mandates.

And on 7 September 2021, RNZ, Wiles said that wearing a mask at Level Two is advisable:

It depends on where the wind is blowing you could have a gust of wind that if someone infected blows it to you or if you were infected blows it to someone else… For the good of everybody, wearing a mask when you’re out of your home is a good idea.”

As independent journalist Cameron Slater pointed out: “If her advice is to wear a mask at Level Two, presumably it would apply doubly at Level Four.” And
“Siouxsie Wiles lives in Freemans Bay, and in order to get to Judges Bay would require a trip in excess of 5km one way and 5km back again. This is in contravention of Level Four regulations that require you to ‘stay local’”.

Slater reported that when the Prime Minister was approached for comment about why it was acceptable for one of her key science advisers to be seen breaking lockdown rules, while Police are busy harassing shoppers, no reply had been received.

In a healthy democracy, the media would be speaking truth to power, so why were the media silent on Wiles’ flouting of the rules? Slater explained why the BFD made it public:

The simple reason is that we are not part of the Prime Minister’s Team of $55 million [a reference to the NZ government fund to rescue “grassroots public interest journalism”, which many see as a form of government control]. This story was given to 1News journalist Benedict Collins. After sitting on the story for five days he informed my source that they had spiked the story. The reason given was that it wasn’t a politician so there was no public interest in the story. Make no mistake, this story was suppressed by an editor at 1News.”

The Wiles case is one of many. The one garnering the most international odium was the 2021 G7 Summit in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, U.K. Among the leaders attending were President Joe Biden, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Photographs taken of the President and First Lady, the Queen, President Trudeau and Prince Charles show them clearly in breach of the ‘two metre’ social distancing rule, and neither is any of them wearing masks, and some show them with arms on each other’s shoulders.

Cynical comments referred to their ‘hypocrisy’ – ‘do as I say, not as I do’, and so on, but their behaviour goes deeper than that.

For one thing, the elite clearly didn’t believe there was any medical need for such social measures, implying that the real purpose was the enforcement of obedience.

Moreover, in making no attempt to conceal their flouting of their own rules was, they were showing ostentatious contempt for us, the proles.

In the greater scheme of things, Covid-19 is but one ‘dot’ of many in the picture. While many can cope with the individual ‘dots’, joining them together to see the whole picture is, for some, just too much.

One thing that can make it easier is the fact that it’s nothing new. Over 2300 years ago the Greek philosopher Plato dealt with the problem of how hierarchical societies ensure that people did not think ‘incorrectly’ using his Allegory of the Cave, described in his Republic. The allegory takes the form of an imaginary conversation between Socrates and his pupil, Glaucon.

Socrates asks Glaucon to imagine people living in a huge cave that is only open to the outside world with difficulty. Most of the people in the cave are prisoners since early childhood. They are chained to the wall, facing the back of the cave, unable to move so they cannot turn their heads to see a fire behind them. Between the prisoners and the fire is a low wall, behind which is a path along which non-prisoners carry puppets and other objects that cast shadows on the wall of the cave. The shadows playing on the wall are all the prisoners can see; unable to see the fire, the prisoners believe the shadows to be real.

The central message of Plato’s allegory is that the human-created shadows are the political doctrine of a nation state. Although that was over two millennia ago, the cave allegory is more relevant than ever today. Industrial society is living in a state of deep ignorance, in which ‘reality’ is created by powerful agencies and their ‘puppeteer’ stenographers, the media.

Nearly a century ago, Edward Bernays, nephew of Sigmund Freud, implied that we are being manipulated by the clever use of psychology. Bernays is widely regarded as the ‘father’ of public relations, the polite term for the manipulation of public opinion. In his 1928 book Propaganda he wrote:

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country…it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons… who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world. This is merely a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organised.

38 years later, Harvard history professor Carroll Quigley published an extraordinary 1300-page book Tragedy and Hope, and in 2016 Joseph Plummer published a condensed 200 page version, Tragedy and Hope 101.

Quigley reveals that real political power operates in secret, over which ‘democratic’ elections have little or no influence. He shows that secret, powerful networks of individuals are behind world events, and that “representative government” is a fraud.

Plummer summarises the situation:

  • Real power is unelected. Politicians change, but the power structure does not. The Network operates behind the scenes, for its own benefit, without ever consulting those who are affected by its decisions.
  • The Network is composed of individuals who prefer anonymity. They are “satisfied to possess the reality rather than the appearance of power.” This approach of secretly exercising power is common throughout history because it protects the conspirators from the consequences of their actions.
  • A primary tactic for directing public opinion and ‘government’ policy is to place willing servants in leadership positions of trusted institutions (media, universities, government, foundations, etc.). If there is ever a major backlash against a given policy, the servant can be replaced. This leaves both the institution and the individuals who actually direct its power unharmed.
  • Historically, those who establish sophisticated systems of domination are not only highly intelligent; they are supremely deceptive and ruthless. They completely ignore the ethical barriers that govern a normal human being’s behavior. They do not believe that the moral and legislative laws, which others are expected to abide by, apply to them. This gives them an enormous advantage over the masses that cannot easily imagine their mind-set.
  • Advances in technology have enabled modern rulers to dominate larger and larger areas of the globe. As a result, the substance of national sovereignty has already been destroyed, and whatever remains of its shell is being dismantled as quickly as possible. The new system they’re building (which they themselves refer to as a New World Order), will trade the existing illusion of democratically directed government for their long-sought, “expert-directed,” authoritarian technocracy.

This disturbing reality contradicts everything our governments, education and media instil in us from cradle to grave, so it is inevitable that such ideas will be dismissed as the ravings of a crazy ‘conspiracy theorist’.

The trouble is, far from being a conspiracy nutter, Quigley was a distinguished member of the Ivy League; a pre-eminent historian who taught at Princeton and Harvard universities and an adviser to the American Defense Department and US Navy.

So how did Quigley arrive at this ‘secret knowledge’? Plummer explains:

Carroll Quigley was a well-connected and well-credentialed member of Ivy League society. Based on his own words, and his training as a historian, it appears that he was chosen by members of a secret network to write the real history of their rise to power. However, as Quigley later realized, these individuals did not expect or intend for him to publish their secrets for the rest of the world to see. Shortly after publishing Tragedy and Hope in 1966, “the Network” apparently made its displeasure known to Quigley’s publisher, and the book he’d spent twenty years writing was pulled from the market.”

Much of the above will be very disturbing to neophytes, so much so that many will throw up their hands and reject it out of hand. To such doubters, I would ask them to explain the facts I’ve presented in any other way.

It’s over Off Guardian. Monopoly finance capital got what the wanted: funding for world war 3. Why don’t you focus on the fictional war in Ukraine? Well, by fictional I mean that the only thing going on is the nine-yar-old war in the eastern part. Russia never invaded Ukraine. There were many people pointing this out from the start. Where have they gone. The media is still lying. Russia may invade soon but they haven’t yet. US and China want to weaken the EU and Russia first before they go at eachother.

And yet there seemed to be a level of global cohesion around covid/vaccines that contradicts these geopolitical divides. If there is a global oligarchy with a bought media/propaganda machine exerting huge influence in the world today I don’t want to rule that out too soon. Do you? Especially not when it’s largely this huge media machine driving up the fear factor in Ukraine. Feels a little like sensationalist theatre sometimes. Perhaps distracting from the man behind the curtain who we saw in full view in 2020?

Not to say the conflict in the East isn’t real, that would be insulting to those who have fought and died there. However,similarly, if it’s allowed to be usurped to serve a global agenda this is just as insulting. A2

There is no Sarscov2 and the test for “infection” is a meaningless fraud which renders these results completely redundant. Neil Orr performed one study over 6 months in 1976 for the Royal College of Surgeons concerning whether the wearing of masks during surgery had any measurable effect on post operative infections. It didn’t.

I am not sure why masks should still be an issue although the terminally dim in the UK still wear them.I never wore one for the ‘flu a.k.a. COVID 19 since re-branding in 2020. I worked out what was going on by June 2020 (I am a bit slow but have and still am suffering health issues which is my excuse).

The whole thing was a load of dogs do and should be obvious to all by now (except the terminally dim).

I think more precisely, since Plato was himself an elite pederast, The Allegory of the Cave can be interpreted as an early “Revelation of the Method.”

Didn’t read much of this article. Frankly I have been a scientist, but I don’t care in the least whether masks “work” or not preventing the spread of the scamdemic. If they work, fine, you sheeple can wear them and I will breath free. Since they work you can be assured that I can’t give you these horrible cooties. If you wish to force me “to protect myself for my own good,” you can go fuck a duck.

Don’t assume you can “breath(e) free” just because you don’t wear a mask. The toxic filth being sprayed in the atmosphere by the geoengineers filters its way down to the ground and we get to breathe it in all day and all night. (At no extra cost.)

I agree with you 100%. But the human toxicity of the chemtrails is a secondary objective. The primary objective has been to turn the atmosphere into a charged plasma which allows the next generation HAARP installations around the planet to operative at far higher destructive efficiencies and power. Their gold standard for poisoning humanity is still direct injection into the blood stream which completely bypasses 90% of the human immune system.

I’ve started watching The Last of Us, the fungal viral propaganda piece.

I wouldn’t detract from the “artistic” merits- it’s visually impressive, well crafted, well acted etc. But it’s basically The Walking Dead with fast zombies wearing baroque vegetable masks.

For the more Ickean, it stars Anna Torv from The Fringe. Why Ickean? Because her paternal aunt was married to one Rupert Murdoch. Yes the very same.

The idea is that the deadly fungus brought a pandemic in the interesting year of 2003 I.e. when that “War on Terror” lark was just getting going. The present of TLOU is 2023, yup right now. What seed are they planting? That the “new world” started in the wake of 9/11?

In any case we are badgered with the “terrifying” thought that THEY DIDN’T HAVE A VACCINE!

And the third episode is curious. We meet a “prepper” who rants at the Fascist goons of the New World Order and carves out a solitary existence (in that oddly comfortable world that a lot of these fictional survivors manage to build up). Then one day a guy gets trapped in one of the prepper’s snares. And they form a gay relationship. Like you do. And the new guy even sneers at the prepper’s “delusion” that 9/11 was an inside job. (As if that would even matter in this post apocalyptic scenario!) So the moral is that the prepper was full of hate till he was woken to love by this woke relationship. I mean it’s all very sweet and well done ….but really?

Face Masks.
The article by Martin Hanson repeats several times a failure to understand the purpose of masks when combatting the spread of disease.

MASKS PROTECT EVERYONE ELSE FROM THE WEARER. MASKS DO NOT PROTECT THOSE WEARING THE MASK.

The failure to explain this was the why masks had little effect at controlling the spread of Covid19. Unfortunately many in the medical profession did not appear to understand this matter. I began my career as a biochemist and microbiologist. My Father, a Pathologist, taught me a great deal about disease transmission. He worked prior to the widespread application of vaccines and antibiotics. Todays medical professionals have expertise with chronic diseases but lack understanding of infectious diseases, especially the nature of viruses.

Masks impede your ability to breathe, and, if worn long term (three years long enough?) damage your immune system. Then there’s all the social, emotional, psychic, and mental damage that mask wearing contributes to, even causes.

Plus, for many people, they’re simply litter, to be discarded when their performative purpose has been fulfilled.

Surgical masks were invented for the sole purpose of preventing a heavy smoking surgeon from coughing up a clam into the patient’s open abdominal cavity. They have worked quite well against phlegm clams and even oysters.

Lbc.co.uk:

“Scientists call for terms ‘male’ and ‘female’ to be phased out amid crackdown on ‘harmful language’

A group of researchers has suggested that terms such as “female” and “male” should be replaced in science as they reinforce the notion that sex is binary.

Researchers should be encouraged to avoid “emphasising hetero-normative views” and use terms like “sperm-producing” or “egg-producing” or “XY/XX individual” instead, experts said.

Other terms and words flagged as problematic include man, woman, mother, father, primitive, advanced, alien, invasive, exotic, non-native and race, The Telegraph reported.”

None of the names actually given in the article agree with these idiotic sentiments. Indeed one of them protests and the only indication of who these “Scientists” and “researchers” are comes here:

“The terms were identified as part of a EEB (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology) Language Project, founded by scientists in the US and Canada who believe some of the terminology used in scientific discussion isn’t inclusive, and could even be harmful.”

And interesting to note that LBC became “London’s Biggest Conversation” signalling an eagerness to convince listeners that it was truly what “the people” were talking about, which then became “Leading Britain’s Conversation”, a pretty blatant admission that the listeners were being led.

You really buy into this crap, do you George? A tiny minority issue ramped up for profit, division and politics.

Stop helping to give it the attention and reach. Maybe then the children can be left to play and have fun until they’re old enough to make life-altering decisions, instead of being forced to listen to this shit because adults who should know better amplify the issue to score points in yet another confected culture war.

Tiny issue? Hello? People have been fired for using the incorrect gender pronoun. I’d bet those people don’t consider this shit a tiny minority issue. This kind of crap is all over the MSM whether you want to see that or not. Hopefully you don’t see it, but there’s George, dipping his head into the sewer of the MSM, poor bastard. George reads this garbage so we don’t have to. It is important to know what the enemy is up to, otherwise why are we here reading this site? By informing us of the idiocy most of us try hard to ignore, George is performing a service IMHO. I don’t know how he does it personally.

The article overlooks the facts that masks increase deaths and even cause “covid”.
(1) Of those who tested positive for covid, 71% reported constant usage of cloth masks in the preceding 2 weeks, and 14% reported wearing it often. -ronpaulinstitute.org, 2020-10-28 reporting CDC research 2020-09
(2) Imposition of masks increased the death rate “from covid” significantly. This may be due to deep re-inhalation of “hyper-condensed” droplets or virions caught in the masks as droplets. -research on varying regulation across Kansas, 2022-02-18
https://journals.lww.com/md-journal/Fulltext/2022/02180/The_Foegen_effect__A_mechanism_by_which_facemasks.60.aspx

The author did not question covid: test, symptoms, etc. He mixed up the list of purported susceptible people with purported symptoms.

Funny. What they don’t say is that as many of the ingredients are what you find in food they don’t cost very much. At all.

In fact I think if it was a supermarket they might give it away.

But you can get it free from Minnie Sota (who ever she is).

When I say free, I mean free at the point of use.

But you will be charged as a taxpayer maybe, ooh I don’t know $10? I daresay even Walmart can sell you something of better value.

Still you do get the special extra ingredient.poisons.How exciting, I always wanted to play Russian roulette – not!!

Off topic for some, pertinent for others, usefull maybe for those trying to assess the very large picture we are being presented with.

Saturn leaves Aquarius in early march, mid march Mars enters, then Pluto enters Aq late March, Pluto meanders in and out of Aquarius until Feb 2024

So? WTF does that mean, for those that try to understand the symbolism/energies involved, the whole “plan” is Saturnian in nature, from early March 2023 the original thrust it received in Jan 2020 is all but spent, hence the “toys out the pram” stuff we are seeing now

Turk/Syr Russ/Ukr w.h.o treaty, 15min cities, H5 N1, Marburg and so on…. thats a lot of teddies being thrown by a very angry, spoilt brat. A brat that is NOT getting its way…

Marsentry in Aq in mid March starts to change the tone away from dictatorial (saturnian) and pre-empts the shift of Pluto into Aq late March 2023,

Pluto in Aq symbolises a generational shift away from minority forms of governance and toward a more humane, equitable, way of managing ourselves..

Helpful? However armed with the same fore-knowledge tptb will attempt to ride this wave and transmute it to their own ends, thus

"Awakening" is absorbed and twisted out of recognition by Awokening.

For awokening to work you need atrocity, inbalance, strife, suffering... you get it?

The next 12 months could be challenging, let alone the next few weeks what with Putins speech due on 21st Feb, coupled with the proof that US blew up Nordstream + paedo bidenscall for depleted uranium shells to go with the shitty petrol tanks hes sending means that psyop or no things could get pretty feisty…red lines, real, imaginary, prompted, coerced or organic have been crossed.

The current situation being much like the whole “virus” debate, fact or fiction doesnt mean that there is shit out there that can kill you.. be that toxins or missiles

Cue those pesky “aliens”? its exactly what we “need”….and you doubt them while having being witness to a weapon being used to slay, (what is it now 35,000?) in a man made earthquake?

Do we need further proof of who they serve?

Which begs the question for us all

I dont know. This is well written and informative in terms of the author’s experiences but its really just confirmation of what’ve we’ve pretty much known for ages. I think the mask debate has been over for some time. Only the corrupted or/and clueless think they had any health purpose.

So we should pay more attention now to pressing issues, such as injections and more current initiatives to get this scam out more in the open. This has always been about control and nearly everything going on right now is connected to the destruction of humanity and the world. They are ramping it up fast so unless we focus we’re in bother.

It’s not justifiable to spend one nanosecond discussing masks and all the rest of the shit. The only sensible response to anybody bringing any of that up is fuck off motherfucker and shove it up your ass. Doing anything else is wasted time and energy.

What needs to be discussed is artificial stupidity, referred by some idiots as artificial intelligence, more specifically the fact that mankind is just entering an era in which human intellectual labor will be replaced by the fucking robots, and all the societal, economic, technological, and biological ramifications.

People intent on masking their face, or their asshole for that matter, are a lost cause. Potentially an enemy with whom one doesn’t discuss stuff, whom one fights.

I’ve been watching since it started (January 2020). I’ve got a bookmark directory called “corona ‘virus'” and in that, I’ve got one called “masks of satan.” I’ve added this article to that directory which makes 39 total links.

So why “masks of satan” you might wonder? That is what they are. As the author stated, there is no real scientific reason for wearing paper and/or cloth masks to protect yourself from a real virus. Real viruses require a type of gas mask like HASMAT people wear.

The people who ran this operation knew that. Therefore, the mask requirements had to have another reason or reasons entirely. And that “reason” is not only one of control (again like the author stated) but one of Occult Ritual.

That’s right, it was a full on occult ritual as are many of the deep schtates ops like 9/11. What I knew going into this was that wearing a mask does something to a person; it changes their personality. They are not the same person with a mask on their face. Why? Because… that is what a mask IS. IT’S A MASK. Hello?

So there it is. We’ve been in an occult ritual for three years and hardly anyone ever talks about it. If you don’t believe me, have a (re)watch of Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.

That’s all the “proof” I can supply but it’s really all that is needed.

One such ‘myth’ was the belief that natural immunity is superior to vaccine-induced immunity.

There is neither natural immunity or vaccine induced immunity. Such ideas are fabricated around the virus myth.

the vaccine can only generate antibodies to a single viral antigen

No such thing as antibodies or a viral antigen. This is made up to promote “vaccines”. According to Stefan Lanka they are called globulines and react to ‘vaccines’ because the ‘adjuvants’ damage cells and the globulines seal up the damage:

‘An essential element in science is the challenging of established ideas in robust, untrammelled debate, in an environment that encourages questioning. Without such openness, science can be misused by powerful interests as a means of disguising misinformation as information.’
As such, please ‘go with the science’ yourself and provide evidence of the isolated virus of what’s called, SarsCov2, you used to establish the 29 proteins.

My first experience of this mask terrorism for real…I do not make stuff up, its easier to write what happened to me and my family

Our Son has got a Sailing Boat ..He runs a small isp

Face masks –Medical Protection, or Badge of Obedience?Isles of Scilly

So we are on our way home from Penzance ..and already got there. My wife and I were coming back..My Diesel Car had already done over 400 miles…and I wanted a piss.

Its as if, whilst we had been away on a sailing boat in the Atlantic Ocean – survived..a hurricane….and nearly ran out of food…

We arrive back in England – and its like arriving back in Nazi Germany

The morning later – I was still in my Sailing T-Shirt and stunk like shit..

Bang Bang on The Door.

2 Very Senior Police Officers and 2 teenagers on work experience..

My wife let them in…

They were very polite….

I asked the main man to take his mask off.

I couldn’t hear what he was saying..

And he did.

I told him everything I knew.

I said my Son is not here. He is still Sailing.

Why didn’t you phone him up – or text him?

Like he had done before, he spent a lot of his time, helping the Fraud Squad with their investigations into Criminal Fraud.

I noticed a year later – The Chief Police Office – he gave me his card, had been promoted. Good for Him. I thought he was a Good Man.

AUTHORITARIANISM

It’s an insidious psychological disorder that consumes like cancer.
First, it consumes courtesy and consideration, then, any inkling of empathy or sympathy that hasn’t been destroyed by ambition, and finally it consumes all traces of humility.
The end result is a husk of a human being. A walking dead person devoid of all character. A real zombie.

Another head hangs lowly
Child is slowly taken

And the violence caused such silence
Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it’s not me, it’s not my family

With their tanks, and their bombs, and their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are crying

With their tanks, and their bombs, and their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are dying

 “As the restrictions and obligations of biosecurity have mostly but not entirely been lifted since March 2022 — while still being suspended over our necks like the axe of the fasces — their replacement by their equally fundamentalist environmental equivalents has shown the arbitrariness of the crises on which the Global Biosecurity State is being imposed — and their shared end.”

 Simon notes the astonishing gargantuan sums of money being diverted into what he caustically (and aptly) calls “a Miss-World list of humanitarian objectives”. Yes indeed – those bloated conferences are merely a cover for draining to the dregs the public purse and diverting it all into the most cretinously vacuous brain-dead platitudes of the type recited by that endless parade of exploited starlets bewitched by those depraved puff daddies of the corporate main office. “The Science” is now nothing more than a collection of fluffy cosmetic slogans designed as an Elastoplast to salve liberal guilt.

 And generations who have been raised on the vulgar speedy resolutions of US TV self-celebrating humanitarian missions have been perfectly groomed to swallow this Twinkie Bar. The conscienceless depths that these serpents will sink to knows no bounds at all considering that now the “environment”, i.e. the very last thing they give a damn about and which they have ruthlessly destroyed and continue to do so, is presented as their anxious concern – and indeed their continued pillaging is even carried out under the cover of that concern.  

 Enter the circus of “The Opposition”: 

 “Creating public compliance for this transfer of billions of pounds from the national taxpayer to international corporations … has been achieved by a vast international campaign of propaganda. One of the forms this has taken is the protests by corporate-funded environmental fundamentalist groups like Extinction Rebellion, Insulate Britain and Just Stop Oil, which our Government, municipal authorities and police forces have granted the freedom to shut down UK roads for hours, and whose promotion by the antics of a handful of ‘activists’ receive millions of pounds of media coverage denied to the millions of UK citizens who marched in protest against illegal lockdown and ‘vaccine’ mandates.”

 And here is an important point:

 “I am not claiming that these activists are hired actors or not sincere in their infantile beliefs. The best salesman is someone who believes in their product, and there is no need to hire crocodile tears when a generation of lachrymose kids and apocalyptic ‘greens’ will shed theirs for free.”

 In short, the dupes. In the end, the media hydra is assured of its methods because in an enormous concentrated population there are bound to be a sufficient number who will have swallowed the aforementioned propaganda and all that is needed is for a torchlight to be shone on them. And the infantile beliefs are cut from the same cloth as the Miss World platitudes.

Evidence against masks to stop supposed pathogens from spreading existed well before the Covid experience. The Covid masking ‘mandates’ were an exercise in obedience training.

Colleen Huber’s article examines this evidence, citing 42 scientific references:

Masks are neither effective nor safe:
A summary of the science
 

Colleen Huber, NMD
July 6, 2020
 
At this writing, there is a recent surge in widespread use by the public of facemasks when in public places, including for extended periods of time, in the United States as well as in other countries.  The public has been instructed by media and their governments that one’s use of masks, even if not sick, may prevent others from being infected with SARS-CoV-2, the infectious agent of COVID-19.
 
A review of the peer-reviewed medical literature examines impacts on human health, both immunological, as well as physiological. The purpose of this paper is to examine data regarding the effectiveness of facemasks, as well as safety data. The reason that both are examined in one paper is that for the general public as a whole, as well as for every individual, a risk-benefit analysis is necessary to guide decisions on if and when to wear a mask.
 
Are masks effective at preventing transmission of respiratory pathogens?

Whether it’s a nuclear power plant accident at Chernybol (USSR), or release of toxic chemicals from a train wreck in Ohio (USA), authorities always react the same way…
Paralysis. Denial. Pretend it’s not happening. Remain silent until they have a fall guy. Firmly believe We are all stupid,or that we Cant Handle The Truth…
Did they all go to the same school ?
Loss of Control by The Authorities must strike terror into their intestines…

I like their “we are confident of…” and other weasel words. Not to mention the one who stated that the bodies of water these chemicals may enter “are really big, so we’re confident the water will dilute” whatever was spilled. Sounds just like “safe and effective” to me, but then I’m just some idiot with an internet connection.

This reminds me of similar would-be assurances from officials regarding the Fukushima reactor “accident”.

I admit that I’ve long since lost track of the status of the facility and its effects on the environment. I gather that the most dire predictions, e.g. a “China Syndrome” meltdown, either did not occur or has been effectively concealed.

But many officials and experts downplayed the ripple effects of the uncontrolled radioactive substance release on the grounds that hey, a little bit of radioactivity is easily dissipated in that big old ocean,

And, come to think of it, that “no worries” diagnosis and prognosis was also expressed by government officials, BP executives, and industry experts after the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe: all of the escaped oil and massive post-spill infusions of Corexit would easily be “digested” in the vast Gulf of Mexico.

Don’t worry, be happy!

Hmm… is it me, or do you see a pattern? 😉

actually most people, when faced with certain types of situations they have faced before, just go back to what has worked in the past. And for these people – well, they’re still in power, right?? They have in no way ever been punished or reprimanded by ‘we the democratic population’ for their endless lies etc – so why not keep repeating this behaviour?? This all continues until ‘we the people’ get off our assess and/or our heads and whatever remains of our ‘brains’ out of the fucking hivephones and stop complaining and start doing something about it – thoughts here – Democracy Study Guide – https://www.rudemacedon.ca/DSG/0000-summary.html

The “Challenge Study” don’t in the UK determined how Covid spreads. Before that we only had common sense and educated guesswork based on studies of other airborne viruses.

Its all mote for now, anyway. In two weeks — on the 28th — the state of emergency will be lifted and Covid as a pandemic — real or imagined, who cares — will pass into the history books.

Countering one piece of fiction, protective masks, with another piece, virus “facts.” Drawn from the book which has the best info about unicorns ever.  😀

This article surely revealed the lack of knowledge regarding the “viral transmission” narrative. The “virus” was a fantasy fabrication by Pasteur, Koch et al decades before anyone could see the “virus” in a electron microscope. It was the wish to explain how diceases emerge and no one was able to provide evidence of the illusion illness by a “virus”. As of today it’s still a mind game and nothing more or less. The Clown Mask use would and will not protect against a non existing illusion illness/”virus”, why the discussion about masks is a sci-fi talk. In the time of the 1918 disease(The Spanish Flu), studies was conducted to show the viral transmission from ill people to healthy, with all the symptoms of the disease, and NO ONE of the healthy men got sick. There was no evidence of a viral transmission! Another study:
“A comparable experiment, carried out under much stronger conditions, took place in San Francisco, with 50 imprisoned sailors. But, once again, the results did not correspond with what the doctors had expected: Scientists were stunned. If these healthy volunteers did not get infected with influenza despite doctors’ best efforts to make them ill, then what was causing the disease? How exactly, did people get the flu?”
Source: Virus Mania by Klaus Köhnlein, Torsten Engelbrecht, Samantha Bailey – A book with all the information needed, to understand the” viral hoax.

The explanation of these illnesses is found in overmedication, massive vaccinations and war turmoil(remembering the war time), very bad nutrition polluted water, unhealthy sewage systems etc. What really helps us all in general terms, is living the healthy life! Let’s not get stuck in the unhealthy mindset founded on the house of sand and the “science” idiocy.

but man what’s a good PHd MD to do, how will he or she earn the wage needed to buy bread and feed the siblings if they cannot sell you their medications? Hell in my home town the authorities spent millions so they could recycle human waste into the potable water system.. That is of course necessary to have enough patients to make the wages needed to own a private yacht and jet, and modern street vehicle.

actually, the true cause of the (actual) pandemic called the spanish flu (& other influenza pandemics) is revealed in arthur firstenberg’s brilliant book, “the invisible rainbow.” &, it wasn’t contagion.

Obedience, yes. But also emptiness and sheer boredom. The Covid mandates gave a lot of bored people something to do. The mask was just another Hoola Hoop, Slinky Toy, Beanie Baby.

Now they’re back to toy guns and water pistols – for the Ukraine freedom fighters!
