‘Pretext to exert control’ over Americans

There’s no doubt that COVID-19, in its first form, was a catastrophe, killing some seven million people around the world after having come out, as most experts now believe, of a research lab in Wuhan, China, where bat viruses were being studied by scientists who wanted to know how to make them for lethal.

The death toll in the U.S. alone was about one million.

But subsequent variations all have since proven to be far, far less lethal.

Many people infected with a variant have reported nothing more than sniffles or brief cold-like symptoms.

It was the No. 3 cause of death in the U.S. in 2020 and 2021, fourth in 2022, and so far in 2023, No. 7.

So why are headlines now insisting that mask mandates, those infamous shots and business-killing lockdowns coming back?

And do they have to?

A commentary by John Daniel Davidson, senior editor at The Federalist, charged that the precautions actually have nothing to do with anyone’s health.

“Having gotten a taste of what unlimited power and authority they could wield under the pretext of pandemic management, the American public health bureaucracy — aided and encouraged by Democrats at every level of government — is gearing up to reassert control over our lives, dictating what we can and can’t do, where we can and can’t go, and what counts, or doesn’t count, as an ‘essential business.’ The reemergence of mask mandates is simply the first sign of what’s to come,” he said.

“And it doesn’t matter at all to them that masks have been more or less conclusively shown not to work. Over the weekend, CNN’s Michael Smerconish confronted Anthony Fauci with a study from earlier this year, the most comprehensive and rigorous analysis of the efficacy of masking during Covid, which found that masking made no difference.”

Davidson explained the lead author of that study, Tom Jefferson from Oxford, found there’s no evidence that masks – any masks – had any effect.

Handwashing? Social distancing?

Same impact, Jefferson found.

“This wasn’t some woefully flawed, nonrandomized study of the sort that too often informed slapdash policymaking during the pandemic. It was conducted by a dozen experts for a British nonprofit called Cochrane, which is considered the gold standard for health care data review and analysis. The study’s conclusions were based on the results of 78 randomized controlled trials involving more than 610,000 people in multiple countries. Areas with mask mandates, the authors found, fared no better than areas without them. As the pandemic ran its course in the U.S., this became obvious, as different states (and often cities) had different masking rules. The mandates made no difference,” Danielson explained.

The signs of the power grab already are evident, he said. After all, this week, Jill Biden “tested positive” and reported “mild symptoms. So Joe Biden said he’d immediately begin wearing a mask, except when he didn’t want, as during a medal-awarding ceremony.

Bureaucrats in New York and Los Angeles also are agitating for masks, and some schools and colleges are demanding submission to their mandates.

Davidson explained, “An elementary school near Washington, D.C., on Tuesday imposed a mask mandate — stressing that it would be passing out KN95s, no less — on third graders after a handful of kids tested positive for Covid.”

He warned, “Whatever benefits masking might offer to a specific person, there is absolutely no scientific case for masking as a matter of public policy, let alone as a coercive tactic with penalties attached to it. The same goes for lockdowns, Covid shots, and the entire slew of pandemic-related policies that were foisted on us by a self-righteous rabble of pundits and so-called experts.

“They were all wrong, and those who questioned and resisted draconian Covid measures were right. Time and data analysis have left little doubt of that.”

The evidence, he wrote, means the campaigns aren’t needed for health and likely there will be COVID strains, like flu strains, every year. But the mandates are for some bureaucracies to build their power.

He suggested a response to those who use COVID “as a pretext to exert control and trample the rights” of Americans.”

“Don’t let them,” he said.

Mask mandate? Do the “minimum.” Ordered to take shots? “Violation of basic civil rights.”

He explained, “Don’t ever give these people the benefit of the doubt. They aren’t interested in keeping you healthy, they’re interested in controlling you. It’s not more complicated than that.”

If mandated, will you get a COVID booster vaccine and wear a mask in public?*

    Well stated, as usual, MetaWorld2
    Medical masks adversely affect respiratory physiology and function. Medical masks lower oxygen levels in the blood.
    Medical masks raise carbon dioxide levels in the blood SAR-CoV-2 has a “furin cleavage” site that makes it more pathogenic, and the virus enters cells more easily when arterial oxygen levels decline, which means wearing a mask could increase COVID-19 severity.
    Medical masks trap exhaled virus in the mouth/mask, increasing viral/infectious load and increasing disease severity SARS-CoV-2 exacerbates the severity when blood oxygen levels decline.
    The furin cleavage site of SARS-CoV-2 increases cellular invasion, especially during low blood oxygen levels.
    Beware of the negative impact on the endothelium and the entire vascular system.
    The first randomized controlled trial of more than 6,000 individuals to assess the effectiveness of surgical face masks against SARS-CoV-2 infection found masks did not reduce the incidence of infection in any statistically significant way.
    Transmission is not simply a function of short random interactions between individuals, but rather a function of particle concentration in the air and the length of time exposed to that concentration.
    A cloth mask or face covering does very little to prevent the emission or inhalation of small particles, in particular exosomes that potentially transmit shedding.
    It is time that we, the public:
    1. open our minds to the facts; develop and maintain critical thinking skills through common sense and skepticism;
    2. take ownership and responsibility for our body, mind, and overall wellness;
    3. become an active participant and final decision maker in determining what can, or cannot, go into our bodies;
    4. admit that our bodies are not objects that should be trusted to others;
    5. understand that a healthy body will develop a robust immune system, which is essential in warding off pathogens and diseases;
    Let’s begin to live a healthy lifestyle through fresh organic food, regular exercise, quality sleep, mindfulness and, most importantly, the reduction or elimination of any addictive substances that are likely to upset the body’s homeostasis.

        Thanks for sharing. So great to collaborate with likeminded people.
        In adfition I also take:
        1. Liposomal vit C for better bioavailability, and for those with sensitive bowels.
        2. Sodium Ascorbate for strong bowels. Cheaper but less bioavailable, so must take more.
        Note: collagen and vit C work synergystically.
        3. Selenium, essential antioxidant.
        4. Zinc and Magnesium, essential minerals.
        5. Probiotics, for a healthy microbiome.
        6. Nattokinase, to help avoid tangled fibrins or clots.
        7. BioCurcumin, anti-inflammatory.
        8. CoQ-10 or Ubiquinol, for health of the mitochondria.
        9. Ginkgo Biloba, for cognitive and vascular health.
        10. Garlic, raw or capsules, as a natural antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral.
        The above are part of my daily neutraceuticals routine that I am sharing, following John’s inspiring example.

      I have a pulse oximeter. I measured my blood oxygen level prior to wearing a mask and then while wearing a mask. There was literally no difference. I would recommend you “do your own research” and run the same test.
