CDC Publishes Study Claiming Face Masks Do NOT Stop Virus Transmission

Over half of the states within the United States of America have now issued some sort of “mandatory mask order”. People are being forced to wear masks under the guise “we must do this to protect our neighbors and communities”. These actions are not only unconstitutional, but they are also unethical, and science does not back up their claim.

CNBC reported on July 20, 2020

“As of Monday, more than half of U.S. states have statewide mask mandates in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus.”

Mainstream media has pushed “to stop the spread of coronavirus everyone must wear a mask”. Mainstream media and politicians have been telling people “wear a mask to help stop the spread of COVID19” for months. It appears as if they have been pushing propaganda not backed up in scientific studies to a trusting public. Is their conspiracy theory true? Do these masks really stop the spread of coronavirus? Let’s take a look. Continue reading

Don’t Live Your Life In a Bubble

Dear Younger Generations;

I am writing to the younger generation. When you become an old-timer like me, anyone younger is of the younger generation. My focus is on the slightly more than half of the population of the U.S. who are younger than the age of 40, but this message is for those older as well. I write this because I, as a scientist, am very worried about what has become of the human species. In just a few short months, we have seen the species devolve into a panic-driven, irrational, hysterical species.

Much of this hysteria has been forced upon us by people who were elected to represent us, not dictate. Not all have gone this route but most have. They now seem to be only serving themselves. Theaters may be closed but we certainly get to see much grandstanding from these people on a constant basis. Their main message is that THEY will decide all risks for society. Continue reading

Fact-Checking Fauci

In recent congressional testimony Dr. Anthony Fauci, the primary architect of the Trump administration’s COVID response, painted a bleak picture about the United States’s ability to contain the pandemic. According to Fauci’s narrative, the United States is experiencing a resurgence in regional COVID outbreaks because it failed to sufficiently lock down back in March, and failed to comply with the existing lockdown orders. Fauci specifically contrasted this situation to several European states that imposed lockdowns around the same time, claiming the latter as a successful model for COVID containment.

There are several immediate problems with Fauci’s arguments, including the fact that COVID cases are showing clear signs of a summer resurgence in the same European countries that allegedly tamed the virus through harsh lockdowns in the spring. The American news media however has seized on Fauci’s narrative, and used it to call for renewed lockdowns. The New York Times and the Washington Post both editorialized in favor of a second stricter wave of nationwide lockdowns lasting until October – this despite there being no clear evidence that lockdowns actually work at taming the virus.

Is Hydroxychloroquine Effective Against Coronavirus?

When the Coronavirus (Covid) epidemic broke out in China, some doctors mentioned hydroxychloroquine as a good medicine with which to treat the illness, because it halts the progress of the illness before it becomes life-threatening.

However, the use of hydroxychloroquine has caused great debate. On the one hand, the World Health Organization (WHO) has refused to grant official recognition of the evidence of its usefulness, and following this line, some countries have not used this medicine. On the other hand, several countries have ignored this indication and have used hydroxychloroquine, either unassisted by other medicines, or in combination with other medicines. Continue reading

The Ways the Pandemic Has Influenced Our Eating Habits

More cooking, more uncertainty, less exercise and less sleep have taken their toll

Making banana bread was popular early in quarantine

Last week, my husband and I decided since outdoor dining resumed in our state, we would go out to dinner. For the first time in several months, I decided to get dressed up. I noticed that all my “real” pants felt snug at the waist. The pandemic and staying at home had changed my eating habits immensely. Continue reading

The Key to Defeating COVID-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It

As professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, I have authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently hold senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals. I am usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine, so have been flummoxed to find that, in the midst of a crisis, I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines. As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily. Fortunately, the situation can be reversed easily and quickly. Continue reading

UNB professor working on a mask that would kill the coronavirus

Technology could eventually be used for large-scale, virus-killing air filtration

Some governments have already made mask-wearing mandatory in indoor spaces. New Brunswick only requires them if physical distancing is not possible. (Submitted by Codiac Transpo)

Amid growing evidence of airborne transmission of COVID-19, the work of one New Brunswick researcher could become an important tool to help prevent the spread of the virus. Continue reading

Lies, Lies, Lies!

They lied about TOBACCO. They Lied about ASBESTOS. They lied about MERCURY FILLINGS. They lied about OPIOIDS. They’re lying about the safety of VACCINES. They lied about ALUMINUM in deodorants. They lied about the CANCER CAUSING TALC in hygiene products. They lied about HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY… Continue reading

The Scam: Taking Your Temperature by Laser Gun

I have been waiting for this! As retired nurse, I know better than to fall for so many scams the media is promoting right now. I’m stuck in my home still because my only fear is getting my son in trouble by being the one who causes the violent protest to break out in Sarasota, FL when some innocent worker attempts to point a temp ray gun at my head. JK, but I have learn to be cool & not go off on someone for it before I can walk among the zombies again. Working on it… ~ Linda Chapman, Retired Nurse

Throw it in the trash!

In Memory of Walter

Back in the day, a LONG time ago, when I was stupid enough to think I was “something”, since Mom went to 7th grade, and Dad went to 8th grade, and there I was, sitting in Mary Baldwin College…

The Professor asked us, “Which profession prevents disease the most in the United States”???

I raised my hand. Of course I knew everything… Continue reading

The Greatest Assault On Our Civil Liberties: Mask Mandates Have No Place In a Free Society

“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.
