I'll say it straight out: Wearing masks is stupid, senseless, silly, sophomoric and downright servile. There's not a doctor in the country who doesn't know that masks are absolutely worthless when it comes to preventing the spread of a virus. And if your doctor is truly stupid enough to believe otherwise, you need to find another doctor—FAST.
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.
Jacobs, J. L. et al. (2009)
N95-masked health-care workers (HCW) were significantly more likely to experience headaches. Face mask use in HCW was not demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds.
Cowling, B. et al. (2010)
None of the studies reviewed showed a benefit from wearing a mask, in either HCW or community members in households (H). See summary Tables 1 and 2 therein.
bin-Reza et al. (2012)
"There were 17 eligible studies. … None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection."
Smith, J.D. et al. (2016)
"We identified six clinical studies … . In the meta-analysis of the clinical studies, we found no significant difference between N95 respirators and surgical masks in associated risk of (a) laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, (b) influenza-like illness, or (c) reported work-place absenteeism."
Offeddu, V. et al. (2017)
"Self-reported assessment of clinical outcomes was prone to bias. Evidence of a protective effect of masks or respirators against verified respiratory infection (VRI) was not statistically significant."
Radonovich, L.J. et al. (2019)
"Among 2862 randomized participants, 2371 completed the study and accounted for 5180 HCW-seasons. ... Among outpatient health care personnel, N95 respirators vs medical masks as worn by participants in this trial resulted in no significant difference in the incidence of laboratory-confirmed influenza."
Long, Y. et al. (2020)
"A total of six RCTs involving 9,171 participants were included. There were no statistically significant differences in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza, laboratory-confirmed respiratory viral infections, laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, and influenza-like illness using N95 respirators and surgical masks. Meta-analysis indicated a protective effect of N95 respirators against laboratory-confirmed bacterial colonization (RR = 0.58, 95% CI 0.43-0.78). The use of N95 respirators compared with surgical masks is not associated with a lower risk of laboratory-confirmed influenza.
Conclusion Regarding That Masks Do Not Work
No RCT study with verified outcome shows a benefit for HCW or community members in households to wearing a mask or respirator. There is no such study. There are no exceptions.
Likewise, no study exists that shows a benefit from a broad policy to wear masks in public.
Furthermore, if there were any benefit to wearing a mask, because of the blocking power against droplets and aerosol particles, then there should be more benefit from wearing a respirator (N95) compared to a surgical mask, yet several large meta-analyses, and all the RCT, prove that there is no such relative benefit.
Masks and respirators do not work.
A friend sent me this statistic to help put this so-called pandemic in perspective:
In Flathead County, Montana, where we live, the population is 106,134. The total number of "active cases" (translated: anyone who has tested positive for corona, whether they actually have it or not) is 213. Two people are said to have died from corona.
213 out of 106,134 is .002007.
My friend writes, "So that children can understand this, it means that 99.8 percent of all Flathead County residents are UNAFFECTED by this virus."
Yet, as with the rest of the country, people all over town are walking around with those stupid masks on. The "home of the brave" is GONE. The spirit of fear has enveloped the entire country. And Christians are among the most fearful of all.
You and I both know that this is a willful, deliberate, purposeful effort by the PTB to scare the American people into accepting tyranny over their lives—and it's working.
I have said it before and I'll say it again: I am personally convinced that this hellish plan could not have succeeded had Donald Trump not been in the White House. The plan was totally dependent upon Trump being in the White House. Had a Democrat been president, Christians and conservatives would have never fallen for this façade. But when Donald Trump told America to limit crowds to less than ten, to shut down their businesses and churches and to not go anywhere without wearing a mask, Christians and conservatives folded like a bad poker hand. Their beloved master had spoken.
Trump willingly subjected the entire country to Bill Gates' and Anthony Fauci's voodoo science.
Let's face some hard truth: People such as Gates and Fauci are evil, wicked monsters. They might even be demon possessed. They have absolutely no conscience about the millions of American livelihoods and lives they have destroyed, the hundreds of thousands of people they have killed around the world, the fear and terror they have inflicted in the hearts of millions of people, the numbers of senior citizens who are dying alone and isolated from their loved ones, the numbers of people who are not receiving the medical care they need as hospitals and doctors hunker down and wait for a non-existent tsunami of corona cases or the trillions of dollars of debt this phony pandemic has cost the American taxpayers.
And politicians of both parties, who are full of greed and unbridled personal ambition, are seizing the opportunity that this "pandemic" provides to bring millions of dollars into their own election campaigns and increase the size and scope of the unconstitutional power that they are able to wield against a naively trusting and frightened citizenry.
The one bright spot is the way hundreds of sheriffs across the country have risen up against these tyrannical lockdowns, shutdowns and mask orders.
Sheriff Jimmy Thornton from Sampson County [North Carolina] stated in a Facebook post:
"As Sheriff, it is my sworn duty to enforce laws enacted by our legislature, as well as protect the constitutional rights of all citizens.
It is my belief that Governor Cooper's executive order mandating face coverings by all citizens in public is not only unconstitutional, but unenforceable. My deputies will NOT enforce an executive order that I feel violates the constitutional liberties of citizens."
Here in Montana, 38 of our 55 sheriffs signed a statement informing the people of this State that a governor's mask order is not enforceable by law and that they would not use their office to enforce such an order. Sheriffs all over the country are also taking principled stands for Liberty and constitutional government. Good for them. These sheriffs are showing more courage and constitutional acumen than the vast majority of America's pastors.
From a spiritual perspective, any Christian who cannot see that these lockdowns, shutdowns and mask orders are nothing more than the tyrannical tools of an antichrist beastly system intent on destroying Liberty in this country is unworthy of the name Christian.
Those masks are the first step in a sequence of brandings for the human chattel that Gates and Company see us as. Forced vaccinations, universal contact tracing, implanted data chips, real-time mass surveillance, a global digital financial system, Artificial Intelligence, forced quarantines, computer-manipulated population reduction, ad infinitum, are coming next.
Bill Gates has a long and sordid history of vaccine corruption in poor countries around the world. And for those who think Donald Trump is some kind of superhero for defunding WHO, one should know that all Trump did was transfer our taxpayer dollars from WHO to the Bill Gates Vaccine Alliance (GAVI).
What we are now witnessing is the Mask of the Beast. And the fact that most Christians seem blind to its reality means the times of great "falling away" (II Thessalonians 2:3) and "strong delusion" (II Thessalonians 2:11) are also descending upon us.
P.S. I strongly urge readers to go to MontanansUnmasked and sign the petition. Please help us rid our State of this infernal mask order. Thank you.
