“We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes. The virus is real, but the government reaction is political and totalitarian. As it falls apart, will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?” ~ Dr. Ron Paul, former U.S. Congressman [Texas]
A mandate to wear masks may seem like a simple matter and a “minor inconvenience” to some or many. But I don’t think those who take this position have really considered all its implications and the long-range ramifications and consequences that might accompany the meek and compliant acquiescence to even a “temporary” mask mandate.
. . . .
Let me educate all of the above who are participating in one of the largest propaganda and misinformation campaigns in United States history, because it appears they have not kept current on the science, or they are not too bright, or they are actively manipulating the people for political purposes that have little to do with any concern for my health or the health of anyone else.
For all the smug self-assured politicians and healthcare department “inspectors” who haven’t cracked a book in the past decade, if you say you are following the science, you are essentially abrogating your own duties and obligations in favor of the technocrats’ theories, that aren’t concerned with preserving anyone’s liberty in the slightest. You always call for the science of this Covid-19 event, that has Americans everywhere making note of the regularly misleading and falsified data many of You have relied upon or advanced as the truth. Well here is your very own science.
The reference is “Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings – Personal Protective and Environmental Measures’ that was published in Emerging Infectious Diseases, Volume 26, Number 5, May 2020. This journal is published by the Center for Disease Control.
This is an excerpt from the abstract: “Here, we review the evidence base on the effectiveness of nonpharmaceutical personal protective measures and environmental hygiene measures in non-healthcare settings and discuss their potential in pandemic plans. Although mechanistic studies support the potential effect of hand hygiene or face masks, evidence from 14 randomized controlled trials of these measures did not support a substantial effect on the effectiveness of improved hygiene and environmental cleaning.”
The following are excerpts from pages 970 through 972 of the review: “In our systematic review, we identified 10 RCTs [randomized controlled trials] that reported estimates of the effectiveness of face masks in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections in the community from literature published during 1946 – July 27, 2018. In pooled analysis, we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks ….
There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza. … we did not find evidence to support a protective effect of personal protective measures or environmental measures in reducing influenza transmission … [And] … We did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission, either when worn by infected persons [source control] or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility …“.
This is the same CDC that appears to be partners in crime with Democrat and RINO led states, Big Pharma and the Leftstream Media that cherry-picks data, omits real science, and positions mask-wearing as an absolute necessary rule, in line with taking a mandated vaccine.

We have chosen to edit portions of the column to pin-point the health aspects of our writers’ endeavor (as opposed to the political) – specifically for DrKelley.info – to emphasize the devious, lying methods used by the controlling enemy – to push their agenda upon this nation. So which is it? Which side of the story does the CDC (chiefly, Fauci) wish to lay claim to – the full nearly 1,000 page report (link in Refernce 1, above) – or the other side of the story, which they have chosen to declare now? I mean, they can’t have it both ways – or has the CDC now chosen to “omit real science”?
