Even though the Wuhan virus pandemic was not much worse than the annual flu pandemics, people were told to wear masks to prevent being infected. But the masks which are generally available have proved to be ineffective against viruses: “The N95 mask effectively prevents viral spread. These masks, when properly fitted, seal closely to the face and filter out 95% of particles 0.3 microns or larger. But N95 masks are in serious shortage even for medical professionals, who are exposed to the highest levels of SARS-CoV-2 and are most in need of the strongest protection against the virus. They're also difficult to fit correctly. For those reasons, the CDC does not recommend them for general use.”
https://www.livescience.com/are-face-masks-effective-reducing-coronavirus-spread.html

Therefore only those who were actually infected were told to wear SURGICAL masks: “The results from influenza and seasonal coronaviruses suggest that surgical masks can help keep people with COVID-19 from spreading the virus”. But since hardly anyone is wearing surgical masks, general masking means little or nothing.

Now that the COVID-19 panic has been exposed as a hoax, instead of people being told to STOP MASKING they are being told to do the exact opposite – wear masks at all times, even in their homes! This has now become the tyranny of masking, and all freedom-loving people should be greatly concerned, and also reject this tyranny. Totalitarianism has now raised its ugly head in North America and the Western world, but those who should be standing against it are bowing down to the god of tyranny. This is also how the Mark of the Beast will be applied in the future -- "it is for your own good".

The following article from DissidentVoice.org makes it clear that the mask is a symbol of subjugation. The tyrants are all the Leftists in the free world (including the so-called *medical experts*). However, what is really disturbing and puzzling is that Donald Trump has been conned into the whole COVID-19 deception, just when he should have opposed it with all his might.

THE MASK AS A SYMBOL OF SUBJUGATION
The lockdown was never really about a pandemic. Covid19 was just the pretext.


Bill Willers | DissidentVoice.org - JULY 9, 2020

It’s difficult to imagine a crueler attack on the human family than the insidious prevention of person-to-person contact. What amounts to house arrest, plus enforced wearing of masks, plus the order to stay a body length from others, has the stated aim of preventing contagion, but as philosopher Giogio Agamben put it recently, “It is political contagion, let it be understood”. He’s correct. The contagion that must be checked is not viral but political. The triad of official mandates hinders communication that cannot be monitored. If online, unauthorized political discourse and strategy can be recorded for the individual’s dossier. In the street not so, at least not yet.


In 1933, Hitler suspended the Weimar Constitution following the Reichstag fire. Citizen rights under that Constitution were abolished and never reinstated. A similar drama continues to play out in the United States since the 9/11 attack, which resulted in the Patriot Act (of ironic title) that trashes the U.S. Constitution, resulting in free rein for the nation’s intelligence organizations in concert with the social media giants. The First Amendment is being negated according to someone’s definition of “hate speech” or “community standards”, with entire sites of information and opinion being “deplatformed”. The Fourth Amendment is a hollow lie in that each citizen’s every act is recorded toward that planned-for day in which all activities are digitally recorded, and woe betide creative souls who offend the rules.

The lockdown was never really about a pandemic. Covid19 was just the pretext. Bill Gates himself admitted (in an unguarded moment?) that earlier SARS and MERS were more “fatal,” i.e., more lethal, than Covid19, yet they came and went without crashing the economy.

But more than just the economy, it was day-to-day existence as we all live it that was a prime target of the lockdown. Ending the lockdown tomorrow would not counter the damage already done. We’ve been psychologically mauled, and there’s no end in sight. Warnings of “spikes” and of future waves come daily. Yes, countless jobs and businesses are being lost, but it is the devastating psychological impact that permeates society throughout that is inescapable. The emotional and spiritual damage will not be healing anytime soon. As intended, we are disoriented and will be for decades as the “conspiring internationalists”, so-called by David Rockefeller, prepare us for a life according to their globalist design.

The cloth masks seen everywhere now are symbolic. However useful in stopping airborne droplets, they do not hinder the passage of viruses, made clear by the warning on a box of the type of mask commonly seen. The media’s favorite expert, Anthony Fauci, stated flatly on CBS 60 Minutes in March that “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask”.

Two months later, as lockdown demands intensified, his stance shifted to the mask as “a symbol for people to see”. Review articles indicating that masks are ineffective, or even counterproductive, rarely make it to mainstream viewers, or they are simply disappeared. But symbol the mask certainly is — a symbol of subjugation.

Living fully and free carries a normal level of risk. In addition to assorted germs and parasites that are a part of nature, there are lightning strikes, auto collisions, falling down stairs and being victimized by criminals — primarily elements within our governing structures. We are being conned with a manufactured terror campaign by a power bloc that considers the bulk of ordinary society a herd to be manipulated. The many who understand this, but who nevertheless wear a mask simply to conform to what they assume to be majority agreement, are allowing themselves to become part of the con. Take the d****d thing off! Breathe free!

With all the chemical warfare research going on in different countries you've got to imagine one of these days something really bad is going to happen. They have to stop that crap NOW! They know this is going on. That's why they thought this was gonna be the big one. Either way it's still an airborne virus. Imagine if you could see the air when you breathe. The mask does offer some airflow resistance. It doesn't matter how little. Every little bit helps. That's why there are other suggestions to prevent the spread too. Do you believe they can't possibly tell us something for our own good and the good of those around us? There are a few good people out there I'm told. The truth is we don't know. And it doesn't help to quote "facts" that we'd "learned" from the media to try to prove that the media lied about the virus. We really don't know. Stay safe out there. Show love for others. ♥️

WORLD’S TOP EPIDEMIOLOGISTS: MASKS DON’T WORK!

The top medical experts in the world can’t decide if masks are helpful in reducing the spread of COVID-19 or just make things worse

Jon Miltimore | FEE.org - AUGUST 8, 2020

PART I

Denmark boasts one of the lowest COVID-19 death rates in the world. As of August 4, the Danes have suffered 616 COVID-19 deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University. That’s less than one-third of the number of Danes who die from pneumonia or influenza in a given year. Despite this success, Danish leaders recently found themselves on the defensive. The reason is that Danes aren’t wearing face masks, and local authorities for the most part aren’t even recommending them.

This prompted Berlingske, the country’s oldest newspaper, to complain that Danes had positioned themselves “to the right of Trump.” “The whole world is wearing face masks, even Donald Trump,” Berlingske pointed out. This apparently did not sit well with Danish health officials. They responded by noting there is little conclusive evidence that face masks are an effective way to limit the spread of respiratory viruses. “All these countries recommending face masks haven’t made their decisions based on new studies,” said Henning Bundgaard, chief physician at Denmark’s Rigshospitale, according to Bloomberg News. (Denmark has since updated its guidelines to encourage, but not require, the use of masks on public transit where social distancing may not be possible.)

Denmark is not alone. Despite a global stampede of mask-wearing, data show that 80-90 percent of people in Finland and Holland say they “never” wear masks when they go out, a sharp contrast to the 80-90 percent of people in Spain and Italy who say they “always” wear masks when they go out. Dutch public health officials recently explained why they’re not recommending masks. “From a medical point of view, there is no evidence of a medical effect of wearing face masks, so we decided not to impose a national obligation,” said Medical Care Minister Tamara van Ark.

Others, echoing statements similar to the US Surgeon General from early March, said masks could make individuals sicker and exacerbate the spread of the virus. “Face masks in public places are not necessary, based on all the current evidence,” said Coen Berends, spokesman for the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment. “There is no benefit and there may even be negative impact.”

In Sweden, where COVID-19 deaths have slowed to a crawl, public health officials say they see “no point” in requiring individuals to wear masks.
“With numbers diminishing very quickly in Sweden, we see no point in wearing a face mask in Sweden, not even on public transport,” said Anders Tegnell, Sweden’s top infectious disease expert.


WHAT’S GOING ON WITH MASKS?
The top immunologists and epidemiologists in the world can’t decide if masks are helpful in reducing the spread of COVID-19. Indeed, we’ve seen organizations like the World Health Organization and the CDC go back and forth in their recommendations. For the average person, it’s confusing and frustrating. It’s also a bit frightening, considering that we’ve seen people denounced in public for not wearing a mask while picking up a bag of groceries.


The truth is masks have become the new wedge issue, the latest phase of the culture war. Mask opponents tend to see mask wearers as “fraidy cats” or virtue-signalling “sheeple” who willfully ignore basic science. Mask supporters, on the other hand, often see people who refuse to wear masks as selfish Trumpkins … who willfully ignore basic science. There’s not a lot of middle ground to be found and there’s no easy way to sit this one out. We all have to go outside, so at some we all are required to don the mask or not.

PART II

It’s clear from the data that despite the impression of Americans as selfish rebel cowboys who won’t wear a mask to protect others, Americans are wearing masks far more than many people in European countries. Polls show Americans are wearing masks at record levels, though a political divide remains: 98 percent of Democrats report wearing masks in public compared to 66 percent of Republicans and 85 percent of Independents. (These numbers, no doubt, are to some extent the product of mask requirements in cities and states.)

Whether one is pro-mask or anti-mask, the fact of the matter is that face coverings have become politicized to an unhealthy degree, which stands to only further pollute the science. Last month, for example, researchers at Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy responded to demands they remove an article that found mask requirements were “not based on sound data.” The school, to its credit, did not remove the article, but instead opted to address the objections critics of their research had raised.

FIRST, DO NO HARM
The ethics of medicine go back millennia. The Hippocratic Oath famously calls on medical practitioners to “first, do no harm.” (Those words didn’t actually appear in the original oath; they developed as a form of shorthand.)
There is a similar principle in the realm of public health: the Principle of Effectiveness. Public health officials say the idea makes it clear that public health organizations have a responsibility to not harm the people they are assigned to protect.


“If a community is at risk, the government may have a duty to recommend interventions, as long as those interventions will cause no harm, or are the least harmful option,” wrote Claire J. Horwell Professor of Geohealth at Durham University and Fiona McDonald, Co-Director of the Australian Centre for Health Law Research at Queensland University of Technology. “If an agency follows the principle of effectiveness, it will only recommend an intervention that they know to be effective.”

The problem with mask mandates is that public health officials are not merely recommending a precaution that may or may not be effective. They are using force to make people submit to a state order that could ultimately make individuals or entire populations sicker, according to world-leading public health officials.That is not just a violation of the Effectiveness Principle. It’s a violation of a basic personal freedom.

Mask advocates might mean well, but they overlook a basic reality: humans spontaneously alter behavior during pandemics. Scientific evidence shows that American workplaces and consumers changed the patterns of their travel before lockdown orders were issued.

As I’ve previously noted, this should come as no surprise: Humans are intelligent, instinctive, and self-preserving mammals who generally seek to avoid high-risk behavior. The natural law of spontaneous order shows that people naturally take actions of self-protection by constantly analyzing risk.
Instead of ordering people to “mask-up” under penalty of fines or jail time, scientists and public health officials should get back to playing their most important role: developing sound research on which people can freely make informed decisions.

Sad to say this, but of your finding people defending the government, main stream media and officialdom, then I can almost guarantee they are not christians. Those of us who have the battle armour of Jesus Christ on know what times we are in and who we are to serve, its not man. We are the servants of the almighty God. A personal relationship with him would help these people see the darkness around them.

Embrace it?

I stroll into Walmart looking like this.... A8A056D2-99F0-4BD2-8136-EAD1912B0E92.jpeg
Yes, I may scare the occasional kid or grandma 🥺
Yes, Once in awhile l have to “ put my hands up and slowly get down on the floor...“

but if we have to do it....why not do it with some style?


Seriousness now:
...it does worry me a little (a lot) and l believe most aren’t seeing /understanding the true scope of what is happening...will happen, if we don’t step back and try and make some sense of the cluster, chaos, confusion of this event. It doesn’t take much to see what’s really going on...

This is NOT how you slow/stop a virus. ✅
Logic: One state is closed, next state over is partying? How? What? Wait?❓

The mandatory mask wearing is truly just the beginning. It represents something more sinister than most can possibly phantom. This is long past conspiracy theories and hypothetical scenarios now.

It will force every human on earth to ask the deeper questions...

Or?...maybe we just have to wear masks for a while and God will handle the rest? Either, or, I’m tired of walking around looking like I’m an extra on Greys Anatomy, especially when all l wanna do is just run in and grab a bag of chips from the store.

We are at least adults.
But now they want to force little children to be behind a mask and breathe carbon dioxide all day long in school. Maybe also preschool and kindergarden, probably, I don't know, people who know please chime in.
It's well known that kids are not at risk from this virus. It's so selfish, man. Heck, even if I was an elderly or sick person. If it's come to the point that I have to make kids suffocate all day for me until unknown date in the future (who knows, maybe some next virus appears soon), some things are just not worth it or right to demand, man. And there's no telling how long will this whole thing last.
People now physically fight one another and harass one another over masks, that don't even help unless they're medical masks, it's just about feeling safer it's completely based on feelings, and everybody is divided nobody is listening to one another anymore. The devil in people is alive and kicking.

I love it when they gather in groups to mob threaten, smear and lay hands on people who are not wearing masks, and they themselves don't even have the mask over their nose or chin, doesn't fit, huge gaps around nose.
Half of the peoples' masks are equivalent to what thongs are among underwear. And they have the guts to harass others and call them "irresponsible" and "selfish" for not wearing their thong mask. smh

of course it goes on with the conditions of when and where and how......
but 5 seems to be the magic number.
of course those with health reasons that would be of issue by wearing one are exempt (thinking breathing issues, sensory issues) but then how does one really know if someone isn't wearing it due to a legit reason or just because they don't want to?

oh, and this place doesn't have a self serve drink station. If you order a drink, they do it behind the counter. EXCEPT for the big metal water container that has always been self serve. Now it is turned so the workers have to fill the little cups, place lids on them and place them on the counter. Lost count of the number of knocked over, spilled water messes occurred in our time there

I was holding back. I just returned to CC and didn’t wanna go straight for the “Doom and Gloom, Boom I’m in the Room to Consume” feel to my posts

.......yet.

Maybe tomorrow. 🤔

But yes, simply put...the masks are the start or something most do not want to hear or think about.
Its bad. 😢

But we do have God...and that’s all that is needed.
I truly believe that...l just can’t make others feel and see that tho.

It's child abuse plain and simple, not based on any facts. People have gone insane.
Both WHO and CDC stated that asymptomatic individuals don't spread this. Kids don't even get sick from this virus.
They need to leave the kids alone. And kids with compromised immunities and severe illnesses that put them at risk need to be homeschooled and resources provided, not every child forced to suffocate.

My apologies but lm being dead serious when l ask...who is to be trusted? Maybe you can point me towards a credible source on exactly what this virus does, is, works,.

Kids...no kids, ? pets...older people who wear flannel? Somehow babies between the ages of 13 months and 13.5 months are immune.

Doesn’t make any sense to me...and let’s admit it, the governing authorities haven’t done much to help that, this or any major issue involved with this pandemic. Like how to stop a “United States“ divided by contradicting laws on containing it?

States open, states closed, Wear a mask, that says on the box it doesn’t work....we can buy food and eat in public, but we can’t drink at a bar...we can hand money over without gloves, yet there’s a 5” bullet proof glass, titanium alloy, reinforced concrete barrier between me and the guy taking my order?

Confusion.
And every single person feels it.
If not...then they must be confused?

Yeah I feel you bro. I'm just saying, if even the organizations that endorse strict corona guidelines both said that asymptomatic people aren't a risk to the population when all they're saying is, risky this scary that... so when they admit "this isn't risk like we first thought"... I am inclined to believe that it is true.

I feel the same way when I go into my local Wawa's. At least people could throw their masks in the trash when they are done wearing them. I see discarded masks on the ground all over the place. Maybe that is where the homeless get their masks. They wear used masks full of corona or other diseases as they scrounge in the dumpster for their next meal. The healthy general public make sure that they keep socially distant from a brother or sister in need.

All will work out, Sis.
God: The simple answer to that boatload of confusing pandemic questions, rules and regulations.

Wait? It’s like ...the entire world is having to turn to God because no one else can give the answers they seek?? All had time to ponder life? Billions of people ...All at the same time?....because the entire world is forced to go thru this?.

What a coincidence!
Hmmm, l wonder if that was all by design?🤔

If this doesn’t show His true awesomeness...l don’t know what will.
