Dear humans: face masks don’t work; the study-review was published by your very own CDC

To readers: Contact Georgia Governor Brian Kemp with this information. He can use the ammunition. He’s issued an order against mandatory masks. (404) 656-1776

Alert to citizens, governors, mayors, presidents, prime ministers, and public health officials—

You want science. You always state that. Well, here is your very own science.

The reference is: “Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures.” Published in: “Emerging Infectious Diseases, Vol.26, No. 5, May 2020.” (That journal is published by the CDC.)

I quote 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 inclusion 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 transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza. We similarly found limited evidence on the effectiveness of improved hygiene and environmental cleaning.”

Here are quotes from pages 970-972 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…”

“Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids… 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.”

“In this review, we did not find evidence to support a protective effect of personal protective measures or environmental measures in reducing influenza transmission.”

“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…”

[*] In case you want to quibble about the value of what the authors refer to as “mechanistic studies,” the authors are correctly setting those studies off to the side, in favor of the material they preferred to examine: randomized controlled trials—which are widely considered to be more valuable, relevant, and meaningful.

So there you have it.

Your science.

Take off your masks. Governors and mayors and presidents and prime ministers, cancel the orders to wear masks. You’re non-scientific. In the extreme.

    But why not overcharge people for masks? It happened before: The Center for Public Integrity: Hospitals grab at least $1 billion in extra fees for emergency room visits.

    This is professional, premeditated mass murder. Prison, electric chair, confiscation of all assets for the culprits, now.

    • Jackson says:

      I do not believe these illegal orders are about wearing face masks. They are testing the waters to see how far they can violate an America. This is all about control and what is coming!

      Here at The Villages, we just lost the battle over face masks. I believe the violence is now going to begin. Take your family and get out of florida because it is going to become a war zone very soon. Even the Sheriffs are stating this. They said the bombings are going to start and mass shootings will begin and their is not many Police to help. I believe this is al about a communist over throw of America. The haves verses the have nots.Florida has become extremely deadly now. May god have mercy on us all and please prey for the business owners who are about to lost everything.

      • Jim S Smith says:

        It’s not just “government edicts” we should worry about,

        – We also have the “corporate edicts” and the associations like the National Retailers’ Association who said that “shopping is a privilege”, as rationale to force all of their customers to only enter when masked!


        Just imagine ALL major commercial businesses going “all-in” on this push to “muzzle” everyone? This, while all the smaller, more-local businesses are getting starved out of existence.


        If you live in one of the “chosen locations”, you may see a major distribution center being built (for AMAZON) in your area. All of them are HUGE! – Thus, the future of “shopping” will be changed forever. ALL of your groceries and other necessities will have to be ordered on-line (of course, only payable by electronic “money”) – and then delivered to your current address. – So what happens if you do not have internet access? – You starve!

        I figure,

        It will only be a short time more, before ALL of the (remaining) “grocery” and other multi-department stores that are left, will either go completely on-line ordering, OR – maybe even merged with AMAZON ? ? ?

        The days will come, when no one will ever walk into a store to browse and do their shopping again!

        “2020 has become 1984!”

      • garwain says:

        Whilst shopping yesterday at two supermarkets I equipped myself with a small folder containing one of my old (2014) ECG readouts. I was the ONLY one in the shop without a mask. I was challenged once by a staff member in one shop. When I said, ‘I have a medical condition,’ and showed the cover of my ECG I was allowed to continue shopping. In shop #2 I was, again the ONLY one with no mask. The only person to challenge me was a fellow shopper. When I said to him, ‘I have a medical condition,’ he replied, ‘Me too…I had a heart valve replacement,’ I asked him why he was wearing a mask but failed to ask him, ‘Would the doctor who replaced your heart valve recommend that ypu galavant through shops with your face covered with a rag which reduces the oxygen supply to your brain, stresses your body, weakens your immune system and denies proper social interaction?’ The brainwashed sheep merely stared at me and I walked off in disgust. For most people it seems the hardest days work they do is resisting their own stupidity. I managed to prove to myself, however, that there is at least one way to function without a face rag. I hope tis may serve as encouragement to anyone out there who’s sick and tired of all this crap.

        • Kerstin says:

          Thank you for your post and I am with you on this. Plus my PTSD goes way up when seeing all these muzzled criminals. Anxiety thru the roof. Thank you for post.

        • Sharon Gibbly-Mooney says:

          You carried a “readout” for what? EVERY STATE has the EXCEPTION and EXEMPTION clause in their illegal Sheeple Mask requirements.

        • Hugh says:

          Excellent, Garwain & Jon

          Garwain, we should also try: “I choose to identify as someone who has a medical condition” and watch the faces of the Karens contort.

    • DarL says:

      My news station tonight told viewers (I had a call from friend) that the virus is spread through the a/c and we should turn off our a/c and open windows. Now will that be enforced through the electric company by brown-outs and turning the power off? It is apparent they want to do us all in with masks and possibly no a/c during a very hot summer!

  2. TseTseTse says:

    Let’s forward this document to every main MSM newspaper, local newspapers, magazines, radio stations, TV stations, government offices, politicians, everywhere and ask them to revise their support for this planned pandemic. Are they accomplices of this diabolical plan against humanity?

    • Invisible Man says:

      What about circulating some kind of chain mail with links to the relevant info? Is there some way to do that? The fact the masks don’t work? The fact that Kary Mullis denounces the use of PCR technology for diagnosing disease? The fact that dozens of virologists and epidemiologists criticized the lockdowns and the media generated hysteria (as the Off Guardian reported)l. And so forth.

      If we could get a serious chain mail off the ground, the MSM would have to address it.

      You need to force the media into a heads I win, tails they lose situation. If they denounce you they draw attention to you, but if they say nothing you keep demolishing their lies.

      • Invisible Man says:

        And to clarify, I mean a chain mail circulated among the general public, not just reporters and publishers. A way to bypass and shirt circuit the pandemic hysteria.

    • Karl Pomeroy says:

      Accomplices indeed. The MSM is now owned by 5 corporations, all linked to the global ruling elite, which I believe is the ultimate perpetrator of the COVID hoax and the attendant totalitarian crackdown. I also suspect governments all over the world have been infiltrated and subjugated.

      Interestingly, Russia is now free of COVID restrictions, as the mayor of Moscow announced the other day. But Syria is still restricted. A photo at Syrian Arab News Agency yesterday showed President Assad and his lovely wife Asma placing their ballots at a local election. Both wore masks, as did everyone in the picture. And people in line stood six feet apart.

      • Amanda says:

        @Karl- that’s kind of surprising to me about Syria. I recall many weeks (months?) ago checking Vanessa Beely’s twitter and she had photos of Syria, where everyone was out in Damascus without face masks, sitting at cafes etc. Seems like they have plenty else to deal with:
        So much for the new foreign policy we were supposed to get under Trump–looks like the same murderous policies in place. Nothing changes.

        • Alexander Richardson says:

          Trump, just like the rest, is an asset of the global elite. He does their bidding — he is another puppet, but will be rewarded sooner or later for his “good deeds!”

    • Jim S Smith says:

      You would be better off sending it to all of your local, county, and state officials – and I DO mean ALL OF THEM.

      It serves no effect to send it to any of the “media”, because they just flat out don’t care! After all, the “media” is “ALL-IN” on this facade-parade.

    • Nell says:

      Good idea! People need to fight for their freedoms NOW before it really is too late, and we don’t have much of a window left. I would also add to your list: local businesses, medical offices, and hospitals. Regarding government offices, contacting local offices would help the most, such as the mayor’s, the governor’s office, your sheriff, local school boards etc. Just Do It! 🙂

  3. Steven Fecser says:

    Masks? We don’t need no stinking masks! ????

  4. striketheroot says:

    The MSM here in Oregon is doing a typical strawman job on masks. They explore the question of whether masks impede oxygen levels in your blood and do tests which prove negligible negative effects. All the while bypassing the “elephant question” of the effectiveness vs the “virus”. Classic misdirection to justify sheeple control…

    • O.D. says:

      It’s a total fabrication. We have decades of scientific evidence proving that even surgical masks reduce O2 in surgeons, causing headaches and trouble concentrating. Numerous suppressed videos and tests objectively show even face shields reduce O2 to 15%.

      Not one person I’ve ever spoken to had said a mask didn’t impair their breathing, give them headaches, dizziness, nausea, and concentration issues. Even physical therapists are making patients wear them even if they have breathing issues.

      This post from a few weeks back may be in part why the MSM in Ore. are doing this, to combat the truth that they were made aware of via email weeks ago, along with the OHA:

      The only thing left for us to do is decide how we will fight back, not if.

      • Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

        I experimented with a face shield and was surprised, in fact, by how much “stuffier” it was under there. Quite intereseting actually since I originally thought it be quite free and open to breathe. It’s not like that at all!

      • Madness says:

        Thank you for this link!

        It should be distributed everywhere as masks are compulsory everywhere or almost, now even in the UK if you travel or go to shop.
        Deliberate killing of the people with the help of the mask.

      • Jim S Smith says:

        Oh my word!

        “. . . down to 15% !!!” – For some, that is low enough to nearly be lethal!

        OSHA says Oxygen concentrations below 19.5% is a “hazardous work environment”! – Time for the employees to educate themselves, and sue the daylights out of their corporate executives!

        • John S says:

          So you’re all saying that wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle reduces oxygen levels, reduces concentration, causes dizziness, concentration problems, etc?
          Wow, gotta warn all those NASCAR, F-1, Indy pilots!

    • glenn says:

      Of course in the short term, the body can overcome the obstacle of a mask but at a cost. It can simply expend more energy to breath in more air. The other problem is exhalation. The mask will collect waste and toxins which will be inhaled again. Our body would have to work harder to deal with the excess amount that should have been exhaled.

      Over time this would lead to lower oxygen levels and illness. The body eventually will get fatigued trying to breath and break down waste and use up excess oxygen for energy. But back to the elephant. The fact we can breath in harder to maintain current oxygen levels means the mask is letting in more air than previously thought. Which means more water vapor, more water molecules, and more viruses getting through.

      • Jim S Smith says:

        The body can adapt to somewhat lowered Oxygen levels (like what is seen in those who live in high-altitude areas) – but it does take time.

        The accumulation of wastes (to include the build-up of trapped CO2) is a VERY serious issue. This can amount to asphyxiation (due to “CO2-poisoning”).

        When our bodies are used to atmospheric levels of CO2 being around 0.002% (average), then at concentrations are we seeing under the long-term used of face masks? (I would venture a guess of over twenty-times the atmospheric level? ? ? – There again, I am not sure.)


        What about bacterial build-up? Heat and moisture make for perfect conditions for bacteria to multiply and colonize on the face (under the mask). So, HOW many people actually wash their faces after they finally remove their masks? ? ? – I am almost willing to bet, next to NONE! After all, don’t we always have a lot of dormant bacteria in our environment, and on our faces?

        • O.D. says:

          All good points! In my piece on the cognitive impairment caused by masks’ hypoxia, I discuss why you cannot acclimate to a mask.

          In short, you’d have to wear the mask continuously, without any breaks, for a minimum of 16 hours a day, for at least a week. No one in their right mind would do that, but these are wrong-minded times…

          Those living at high altitude are acclimated, but again at a cost. Many living at elevation still have blood clots or other issues in things such as pregnancy or due to age.

          Basically your body cannot get used to the short periods of hypoxia throughout the day, as with workers taking it off for breaks or food or outside of work. I just really worry about people hurting themselves thinking they’re protecting themselves.

          • Jim S Smith says:

            I can barely stand to wear one for merely ten minutes!

            Guess I’m screwed on that?

          • Jim S Smith says:

            Many of those who have lived in those extreme altitudes also have a different diet composition, and a bit different blood chemistry.

            If you are from a people who have lived in the lower elevations for thousands of years, then you may see more possible problems with those clots in your fellow folk. Most of the peoples from the extreme altitudes have had many, many generations of getting adapted to that environment. This is what Nature and its creations do best: “Adapt”.

            This also largely depends on your blood-type, as well as overall body chemistry and dietary composition. Just like certain blood-types may be more prone to problems like anemia (as I, myself, am slightly anemic), and therefore – require a bit different nutritional balance and dietary composition – in order to function optimally.

  5. Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

    Disposable medical masks were designed to be worn by medical personnel to prevent the accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the ]doctor] against splashes or sprays of a patients bodily fluids… [They don’t stop] virus transmission either when worn by an infected person… or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure from infected people. (Paraphrased CDC Memo in MAY 2020(?!) , source:

    In addition to masks being useless against a virus riding through the air on someone’s spittle, or breath, they simply don’t exist. What DOES exist are exosomes that remove toxins from the body.

    The theory of microbiomes includes Beauchamp’s terrain theory but in an updated form. The current covid viral transmission theory has been outdated since Beauchamp and is can be overturned today with generally recognized microbiome theory. Jon’s notion that covid is not one thing but many is true but even truer, covid doesn’t exist and microbiome/terrain theory eliminates virus theory and transmission altogether.

    There likely is not a bigger fraud in the world that is relevent right now than the so-called “infectious disease” depts. of universities and govn’ts. If we here can get a handle on this covid hoax, why can’t they?

    How did everyone miss this? This study is from May 2020…We lived in mask-agony through June and July?

    • Donna says:

      Rick, I’ve been questioning the existence of covid-19 practically from the start; but, I’m not to the point of saying viruses don’t exist. I believe some viruses do exist. Some have been isolated and identified and given a name; such as the Epstein-Barr virus, which is the virus that causes mononucleosis. I was infected with this virus during the summer of 1990. My main symptoms were extreme fatigue, swollen glands, and a low grade fever. I had to beg my doctor to order this test. He finally ordered it; although, he thought that it wasn’t justified. Probably due to my age. I was 39 at the time. Even my former father in law told me that I was too old. However, he wasn’t a medical specialist as so many in government proclaim to be.

      • Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

        To say you were infected by a virus is to preclude the very issue we’re scrutinizing. All you can say is you had those symptoms and they matched symptoms described in a disease-manual under E for Epstein-Barr. In MICROBIOME THEORY / Beauchamp Terrain theory of disease, you enountered TOXINS and your EXOSOMES which look like viruses under an electron microscope, eliminated those toxins from your body which caused those symptoms. I now think all viruses have been misinterpreted. Jon’s position is close to this but he would say the EBVirus was a cover for a host of symptoms caused by pollution in general– which is tantamount to saying that virus doesn’t exist either.

        I don’t know if Jon has pointed to Dr. Kaufman yet but as far as Jon’s pollution theory cause of disease goes, Kaufman’s exosome response to pollution toxin is consistent with Jon’s ideas. Kaufman says virus “is” exosome but if you say it like that, I think it gives too much credit to viruses. I like to say that viruses don’t exist and that exosomes do.



        • Donna says:

          Rick, the doctor ordered an Epstein-Barr test of my blood. So, if this virus hasn’t been isolated, what was the Epstein-Barr test checking for?

          There’s a video on YouTube that I watched called Exosome Theory vs. Virus Theory. I think there may be more than one copy on different channels; but, I’ve watched it maybe three times. When I use the exosome theory and apply it to covid, it seems like a plausible thing to say covid is not a virus at all. But, with Epstein-Barr, I am not so sure. The doctor that called me with the results of the blood test told me that I probably caught the virus at the mall by walking through a space where an infected person had just sneezed. It’s possible. We used to go to the mall every week. There is no treatment for mono other than to get plenty of rest and drink lots of fluids and to take NSAIDS for the gland inflammation if it helps. For two months, all I could do was get plenty of rest.

          Thanks for the links, I will go through them as I can.

          • Rick Potvin in Phoenix AZ says:

            Good question: the doctor ordered an Epstein-Barr test of my blood. So, if this virus hasn’t been isolated, what was the Epstein-Barr test checking for? My answer: The same thing they look for on the covid test- either antibodies that may indicate false positives or negatives or some type of RNA wrapped in a protein that they can amplify. Given the idea that viruses cannot exist, only exosomes, we can infer that they didn’t isolate the EB virus for you for a positive ID.


            Epstein-Barr virus test: Procedure, results, and …
            Jun 13, 2018 · The Epstein-Barr virus test is used to identify the presence of certain antibodies. When a person has Epstein-Barr virus, their body’s immune system releases proteins, known as antibodies, to fight…

            I’m surprised your doctor said it was from a sneeze in a mall. That’s what they’re telling us about covid so this must be an old song and dance. In reality, the mono was known as kissing disease so you must have been doing more than walking.

            Mononucleosis is an infectious illness that’s usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus ( EBV ). It’s also called mono or “the kissing disease.” You can get the virus through kissing as well as things like sharing drinks or silverware. It’s contagious, but you’re less likely to catch mono than other common illnesses like a cold

            If there is no such thing as virus, but only exosomes that seek to eliminate toxins, it may be that the MICROBIOME/Terrain/Beauchamp theory is at work here to eliminate toxins from the other kisser. Body fluid exchange certainly seems more likely a transmission vector than mall-air, just as Jon said injection into the bloodstream is the only way to transmit a working-virus-exosome. Not sure on that point though. Overall, covid-hoax was not worth shutting the economy down over– and vaccines don’t work.

            The eventual solution is consistent with detoxifying the body with various detoxifiers like plenty of water, rest, vitamin C, chelation foods like cauliflour and apple, or chelators as supplements and detoxers like those Japanese footpads. The mono symptoms do seem to be the body’s effort to expel things.

          • Madness says:

            Sorry but to my best knowledge and I was reading a lot after viruses for years, they never ever managed to isolate any virus fully, properly and bred and infect someone to have the same illness. Ever. (Koch postulates)
            This is how Dr. S. Lanka could win the case on the German High Court that measles virus doesn’t exist and he got Nobel for discovering a giant sea virus. This was the problem with HIV (Jon’s archive), with all of them. I never read after Epstein-Barr but my guess it is the same. Their tests are not reliable, none of them. You can also find many articles here in the archive written by Jon about it, he mainly wrote about the PCR type but can also can find many about antibody and similar testing (Elisa, WesterB) here:


            They don’t work, period.

            And the virus behind Covid19 doesn’t exist either but an agenda for depopulation does exist and they are very well implementing it, killing us.

          • Jim S Smith says:

            Epstein Barr is not viral!

            It’s bacterial.


            This lunacy that there are NO such thing as viruses is laughable at best.

            Yes, I do agree that no known, proper isolate of this “COVID-19” was ever performed. That I grant you. Pus, “COVID-19” is NOT even it’s supposed real name anyway. (Thank the wacked, and political W.H.O. for that.)

            But Epstein Barr is a bacterial infection which happens when the body is compromised. In other words, Epstein Barr is more a symptom, rather than a direct cause. Something else caused the body to “lower its guard” so that Epstein Barr bacteria can cause more havoc.

        • Ron says:

          Good stuff, Rick! Thanks so much, from a fellow Phoenician.

      • Madness says:

        It’s not about they don’t exist. It is about they have a different role that we were told to. We make them, our cells make them. I know nothing about your illness but in many cases you first have the symptoms and germs appear after that. True for pneumonia, too. At the beginning of pneumonia you won’t find the bacteria causing it. That part comes later.

  6. Kia Kaha says:

    If government “experts” have to be informed by the public, so government “experts” can inform the public…lol…then government “experts” are __________ (fill in the blank).

    We already know.

    • Madness says:

      Please Kia start to CALL them on the name what they are:


  7. CynthEmm says:

    Called. You will get a human and your call will be recorded. I read part of Jon’s post along with the reference. I also thanked him for his stance and reminded him that the death rates are now low and no need for masks. Of course all that falls in the Matrix of the hoax. I have never worn a mask yet. I believe that the mask mandate will only be lifted when you get the vaccine. Kind of what happens now for nurses who dont want a flu shot.

  8. Donna says:

    I’ve worked in the health care industry for 20 years and not once have healthy people been required to wear masks unless they were in surgery or they were providing direct patient care to an infectious patient. But, in that situation, they may also be wearing gloves and a disposable gown. Maybe in 2016 or 2017, I was hospitalized with pneumonia. When I had to leave the room to go for testing or whatever, I had to wear a mask.

    From what I have discovered with all the research that I have down, covid-19 has infected everybody on the planet or will infect everybody. Most people will test positive, even if they don’t have symptoms. So, the positives there are, the lower the infection fatality rate goes. But, both the pcr tests and the antibody tests are flawed and basically open for interpretation from what I have discovered.

    If this covid thing turns out to be like the common cold, then herd immunity and vaccines will not work. People will just have to live with it. I hate to think of the idea of people wearing masks the rest of their lives. This goes against everything that I learned from my time working in health care. Doctors and nurses should both know better. However, if enough money is offered many doctors and nurses will totally forget about ethics.

    People are too afraid to investigate the truth for themselves.

    • Madness says:

      There is no covid19. Never was. And it couldn’t infect anyone. With respect, I also have a nurse friend, she is the hardest to persuade as spent so many years on the field she is unable to accept the truth as it is opposes everything she was taught and she thought while working.

      Start to read on the As they like to block it, use the search engine randomly like: antibody, virus, rabies and so on.

      And read E.McBean book The Poisoned Needle, also on

      Many years ago for a very short time I worked in a milk laboratory (checking the fat content of the milk), at that time happened that one of our vets told us that a herd of caw got rabies. I was young, ignorant and freaked out working with THAT milk. The vet told me that no problem, milk couldn’t infect me. I didn’t understand how it was possible as common knowledge was that the saliva of a rabid animal can infect you. I feared that illness from childhood due to that I watched a film behind my mother’s back and it hit me. But especially because of it starting from my childhood I read everything about it, everything I could put a hand on it.
      And it was full with holes:
      1. Why we should have sent the dead animal’s head for Negri testing if saliva was full with viruses?
      2. How milk couldn’t infect you if saliva could even through a tiny wound, what is your guarantee you have no tiny wound in your mouth or other parts when swallowing it?
      3. Why the vaccine was meant to save lives made one of my colleagues sick for a life hard to survive it? (Their dog played with a fox, later they found the dog as if it hanged himself and they were told the dog had rabies and the whole family must had vaccines)

      Many years later this research explained everything. Rabies is another hoax, brain inflamation caused by different things including worm, extreme dehydration, poisons and so. They put a label on it and scared the hell of out the people as the most terrible illness ever, due to this fear people forgot to think straight and billions of pets suffers the compulsory harmful vaccines mandatory by law and such a good money to Big Pharma.

      Read it!

      And remember it when they come up with the next deadly pandemic or epidemic whether it is AIDS like or Ebola like or Covid like. This is how they ‘work’ for their money fooling us since Pasteur.

      • Piksil says:

        Second this! is a great resource, and some of the material goes back in time, but is certainly relevant today. It shows that the fraud has been continued for a long time. Not just ‘covid’.

        Makes one wonder how a lot of this information didn’t see much light in (relatively) recent times.

      • Amanda says:

        Wow, thanks for the info on rabies–I’ve been wondering about that for awhile, especially since they lie about everything, and I’ve already woken up to the HIV causes AIDS LIE, the polio lie (it was mass poisoning with DDT), and the current corona/covid lie. And yes, is an excellent site!! So much truth there, you could spend forever reading over there. That site helped me wake up to the HIV/AIDS scam. And, also, I don’t believe anything they say about Ebola–they were caught in Liberia putting formaldehyde in the water, which made people sick, and then they claimed it was Ebola.

        • Madness says:

          I hope you read back Amanda, if you are interested in as the scam not ends here. We now have rabies like illnesses and 1-2 vets claiming that they are man-made (effect of vaccinations or other poisons), very similar only the animal attack you part is missing. Like distemper if i recall well but not so sure, as I am interested in cats but dogs. Dr Patricia Jordan wrote about it, she has a website.
          I used to think a lot when a group of animal was infected with rabies according to reports. In my country they throw out food with ‘vaccines’ for wild animals and dog owners were warned not to let their dog to eat them by mistake. It’s very easy to mimic a rabies epidemic with poisoned food accidentally or deliberately.

      Narrator [EDITOR: let’s try to get either Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellen]:

      The world was overtaken with the Corona Virus in early two thousand and twenty.

      As the death toll rose, scientists in all parts of the world began the most

      important work of their careers; a vaccination for COVID Nineteen.

      It was hard work. Racing against the clock, they worked day and night for

      months. Many went without sleep. Now, after over thirty million deaths due

      to the SARS-COV2 Virus [EDITOR: Good. We want to sound ‘scientific’ but not

      too scientific], Scientists in Washington [EDITOR: DC or the state? FIX IT!] have

      announced a breakthrough, a Vaccination!


      [Trump, Fauci, Pompeo, Pence video]

        Also, “Sponsored by WHO, BMGF, WEF, CDC”, etc.

        I felt the tension reading through, til I got to the CoVax20 part. (I offered up CoVax as a name some time ago, but I think CoVax20 sounds better; like THE answer to CoVID19.)

        I hope a vaccine comes sooner than later, so that your idea can be used in the political arena, to benefit humanity of course.

        • bleak says:


          Thanks for the suggestions.

          At this time, our list of endorsers and sponsors is long to say the least.

          Also among those you’ve listed are The Aspen Institute who have emphasized their eagerness for inclusion in the video. We’re waiting to see exactly how eager they are. They have done a lot of work on “vaccine hesitancy” (as if lol) and I’m sure they don’t want their efforts thrown in the bio-hazard bin of history.

          Also, the ACIP and NIH are strong contenders.

          Your suggestion for CoVax20 as a campaign name is one of the best we’ve heard to date, and frankly, I’m sure it will be the one they go forward with. Thanks for the contribution.

          As for President Trump et al, their prerecorded video has been in the vault for some time. And for good reason. I can’t say much more than this.

          Kind regards,

  12. Pft says:

    There are 2 issues. Efficacy and safety. Efficacy cant be shown with statistical significance but thats a logistical or study design problem (sss, etc). There may be a small effect thats too small to measure.

    Safety is a bigger issue. For certain people wearing a mask for long periods is likely to be unhealthy and even dangerous (those with heart, lung disease, UTI’s and those exercising or doing manual labor). Studies have not been done showing they are safe.OSHA defines minimum oxygen levels for a safe workplace but no studies on oxygen levels within a mask. It would be a simple study. Alternatively just measure the pulse oximeter levels in mask wearers .

    Then there are contamination issues. Masks collect virus and bacteria throughout the day and may spread disease. Sweaty mask mixed with virus particles on outside provide a direct pipeline for virus to nasal/throat passages

    This isn’t about science its about control. Being conditioned and trained like a puppy dog or kitten. Might as well take away peoples guns now, pussycats and puppies don’t need guns

    • Madness says:

      How lucky you are you can have guns.
      I can’t see a happy end. People accepted that many of their relatives were already killed, I mean those elderly who were deliberately killed via wrong treatment, ventilator, abandoned. They must belonged to a family, many of them.

      No problem.

      Many died or dying due to lack of medical care, diagnosis, delayed surgeries. They also very likely had or have a family.

      No problem.

      Many other lives in danger due to the compulsory mask – lowered oxygen especially if they already have a condition.

      No problem.

      Many will die slowly due to poverty, lack of job, later lack of food (they work hard on that part but anyone with a single working brain cell should have noticed it by now)

      No problem.

      Goverment’ action make no sense, this morning they say, mask no needed, won’t protect, this evening they say the exact opposite and it is true for many other things they command or make a law about it.

      No problem.

      For God’ sake! When it will be a problem for the masses? Or the last one just should switch off the light or what?

      They will kill us, most of us , one by one and people will let it go hoping that they can survive with obedience or something or rather SOMEONE ELSE will do something and don’t even mind if they beloved (? beloved, really?) family member or friend dies during the process of being totally coward and blind.

      I envy you, I so much wish to have a gun for the moment when they try to vaccinate me against my will. At least for that moment.

  13. Nobody says:

    Did you actually read the article? Their takeaway was that noncompliance by the and improper use hamper the effectiveness of masks:

    In theory, transmission should be reduced the most if both
    infected members and other contacts wear masks,
    but compliance in uninfected close contacts could be
    a problem (12,34). Proper use of face masks is essential because improper use might increase the risk for
    transmission (39). Thus, education on the proper use
    and disposal of used face masks, including hand hygiene, is also needed.

    • Tom says:

      Yeah. And are the governments all over willing to invest in this education? Are we going to have more lockdowns just so people can attend this course? Should they do it online? How do you monitor if they successfully completed the course online and have not cheated? How do you educate the old? The young? The less-educated? Some studies say once you touch the mask with your hand, it’s useless. You wear it for 30 minutes and it gets moist, it’s useless. How do you monitor that? How do you monitor people not reusing their masks over and over?

      At the end of the day, it’s just this. The enforced, mass usage of masks does more harm than good.

  15. Not So Free says:

    This is not about truth.
    They don’t care about truth.
    This is about control.

    • Madness says:

      And depopulation. And it is happening. Nothing theory or testing how far they can go. They started their depopulation agenda with every tool they could come up with, culled the elderly, no medical care, no surgeries, lack of sun, constant stress, house arrest, lost jobs, stressing the children and due to that stressing the parents – stress is the biggest enemy of the immune system, masks to cut you off from the required oxygen, fake testing and tracing to feel the pressure, lock step to prevent you enjoy your life on a holiday or to visit a relative on abroad – and the vaccine campaign has started, too.

      It’s not an experiment. And they won’t stop unless people make them stop.

      • Piksil says:


        I agree, but have been thinking that control might win out over depopulation.

        IF they can continue control, depopulation will become secondary, as they need a certain number of slaves to continue to buy their poisons.

        How about ‘controlled depopulation’?

          No. Sorry. Jim is right in my opinion. There are several ways to do it, poverty kills fast and they are working on it. Also we might not see the effect yet but the many delayed surgeries, treatments. The constant stress.

          I saw a documentary, many years ago (10+) can’t recall the title but the plan was to make the earth to a kind of big national park for the elite and to force people into cities where you have no chance to help yourself like a garden to produce food but depends on them. Smart cities? They don’t need us, according to them the earth would be much more comfortable without us, they need only a limited amount of slaves.

    I wish someone could get this message to Sean Hannity. He’s always on the news (and I don’t watch often) touting vaccines for “corona virus” as if they were the nectar of the Gods. It’ just disgusting because anyone can see the man has not done his due diligence. He’s done no homework at all on how vaccines do far more harm than good, no matter WHAT KIND OF VACCINE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. I always thought of him as smart and on top of things, but about this subject, we differ most heartily.

    I detest vaccines, never got them for my kids, (when they were kids long time ago) and my DH and I have no intention of taking one if they become required. I’ll put up a fight like they’ve never seen.

    It’s ludicrous to think that a vial full of chemicals is going to “save us” – – but of course now CHINA has come out with one we’re all supposed to believe is safe?? THIS is the same country who brought corona to our shores, for heaven’s sake, why would we take their word about anything at all?? Pure insanity has gripped America.

      That’s NOT what happened.

      Did you read any of Madness’ posts?

      It is imperative to keep two things in mind.

      1) The PCR test is utterly unreliable and CANNOT prove the existence of any pandemic. China didn’t actually “cause” anything. It’s ALL smoke and mirrors.

      2) conventional germ theory – as the charlatan Pasteur formulated it – is utterly flawed and inadequate to begin with. We need to study medical mavericks like Ryke Geerd Hamer, Antoine Béchamp, Stefan Lanka and others if we want a truer, surer understanding of health and disease. We are in the grip of a false scientific paradigm. That’s the deeper problem.

  17. Kia Kaha says:

    • zdb says:

      Um yeh, because so much has changed in the science on this subject in a month.

      What exactly has changed?

      Fauci said that nothing changed. He said that he lied in past statements to keep the public from buying up all the masks that healthcare workers needed.

      The Surgeon General said that science changes and that cigarettes used to be used for asthma (they sometimes still are) so we needed to ignore his ancient statements of a couple months ago and listen to him now.

    • Jim S Smith says:

      Science does not change!

      Only our understanding of our world through the lens of Science.

      It was the politicians and the many charlatans who masquerade as “scientists” who are trying to “change” science.


      There still are dozens of other controlled tests/experiments which say very much the same thing: “That masks have NOT been shown to significantly reduce the transmission of . . .” (Even one such experiment done in Hong Kong – which was quoted in this CDC paper).


      Beware of written-in contradictions (in which many of these false, pop-science “studies” do, routinely) – especially towards the conclusion statements at the end. When a “study” seems to contradict itself, after explaining at length their process – there is reason to be suspicious.


      “Government” does NOT have the valid authority to mandate any kind of health remedy, treatment, therapy, or the like upon the People, regardless of excuse or reason! One’s personal health and well-being, is ultimately that individual’s choice alone to make.

      Call it “selfish” or whatever label have you, but it is all those virtue-signalling control freaks who are most selfish. THEY are the ones going along so as to appear to “fit in”.

    This was an interesting point from the abstract that you didn’t point out;

I want to help a friend who’s still on the fence get up to speed on this.

    • bleak says:

      There is no ‘101’ article AFAIK; only a long history of case after case of sickness and death that resulted from vaccines.

      I learned recently that the original polio vaccine during the 50s/60s was a disaster and may be responsible for the spike in cancer in general. Look up Dr Alton Oschner.

      Oschner vaccinated his grandson and granddaughter himself with the polio vaccine. The girl contracted polio and the boy died. In their ‘rush to judgement’ they failed to realize the polio vaccine invented by Salk and Sabin contained a monkey virus, SIV (Simian Immunodeficiency Virus). So of course they named an Institute after Sabin.

      There is much more to it. Very insidious and dark agendas have been at play for a long time. The vax industry is blatent greed, mind control, lie after lie after lie.

      See Dr Pam Popper
      I signed it but haven’t heard much from her/them since. New video on Thursday. She also has counseling but I’m not sure how that works.

      I understand how you feel though. I was thinking of handing out flyers in my neighborhood of the walking dead but don’t want to risk getting the cops called on me at this point. Choosing my battles.

      Just remember you are in good company.

      “Vaccination is a barbarous practice, and it is one of the most fatal of all the delusions current in our time.”

      Here’s a great site which also quotes from actual studies, medical reports, etc. Pretty solid information, IMHO.

      Also includes many examples of the sheer dishonesty of the various “agencies” and org’s in their pro-vaccination promotion campaigns. It’s just breath-taking how many millions (or even “Billions”) of dollars are spent in trying to convince (or Pressure) the public into accepting untested, unverified, and otherwise questionable vaccines as “gospel truth” in medicine!


      Sounds just like all the effort (and money, again) put in to convince the public that “masks are both beneficial to and required of everyone”? ? ?

      One way to fish out a lie, is to see at what lengths the “system” uses to force everyone to accept the “established answers”, rather than actually PROVE their points.

    • Madness says:

      A very good one was about the flu vaccine. Sorry can’t recall the title of it but someone here might remember. They officially tried to explain why the flu vaccine has such a low effectiveness (if any). The explanation was that they used eggs to breed the virus but the virus mutated for its survival to the environment of the egg and after that it was a different virus version so the vaccine couldn’t work. And knowing this they used egg for decades or so. 🙂 But this is just one.

      If you ever manage to persuade your friend to read after it, E. McBean: The Poisoned Needle is the best as follows the history of the vaccination and it was a failure from the start. As it uses countless documents from the past old hospitals’ notes and council’s library and so on, it is very convincing.

  23. Eluard says:

    Here is a letter, below, that I just sent to my local library, but I believe it can be used by anyone to any director of a public space, by altering/deleting some of the language. There are links and all. The italics that I indicate here don’t show up in WordPress but you can use your own where relevant.

    I know that the library has a mask/facial covering rule in place like many other public places, retail stores, etc. I don’t know if you’re aware but the efficacy of masks, for protection against illness, is being challenged by many health professionals. Not only that but their usage can actually compromise one’s health.

    The CDC itself released, on May 25th, 2020, only two months ago, a report detailing studies that have been done on “Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures.” Please see link to PDF for your perusal.

    Here are a couple of quotes from the paper:

    From p. 970: “Two studies in university settings assessed the effectiveness of face masks for primary protection by monitoring the incidence of laboratory-confirmed influenza among student hall residents for 5 months (9,10). The overall reduction in ILI or laboratory-confirmed influenza cases in the face mask group was not significant in either studies.” (My italics)

    From p. 971: There is limited evidence for their (masks) 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. (My italics)

    There are numerous studies and many doctors, including the American Medical Association, that tell us that only those who are ill–and those taking care of patients who are ill–should wear these masks. And I quote from linked article below:

    “Face masks should not be worn by healthy individuals to protect themselves from acquiring respiratory infection because there is no evidence to suggest that face masks worn by healthy individuals are effective in preventing people from becoming ill.” (My italics)

    And lastly, here is retired neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock on the health dangers of consistent use of masks revealed by a recent study (link to article below):

    “They found that about a third of the workers developed headaches with use of the mask… and 60% required pain medications for relief. As to the cause of the headaches, while straps and pressure from the mask could be causative, the bulk of the evidence points toward hypoxia and/or hypercapnia as the cause. That is, a reduction in blood oxygenation (hypoxia) or an elevation in blood C02 (hypercapnia). It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%.” (my italics)

    Based on these recent studies, expositions and learned viewpoints–I would ask you to consider making the wearing of facial coverings voluntary–and NOT mandatory within the library. By doing so, you would be going a long way to protecting and preserving the health of both your employees and your patrons.

    I thank you for your consideration in this vital and important matter.

    There is a spiritual battle raging on. This evil must be faced head on and I will let the Creator sort it all out in the end.

  26. Paxton says:

    First thing I note- this isn’t published by the cdc as cdc run or agreed with studies- it’s a cdc journal that publishes all sorts of studies that are done in the field of emerging infectious diseases. It’s an exchange of ideas and news (albeit in the form of recent studies) within the scientific community. The study being discussed here talks about comparing studies to extrapolate findings. But, it doesn’t talk about the studies themselves. I was curious what the cited articles were like. Figure 2 on page 971 (page 5 of the pdf) lists out the articles used for their gathered face mask information- the article also discusses hand washing and surface disinfection (not just facemasks).

    “Conclusion: Hand hygiene and facemasks seemed to prevent household transmission of influenza virus when implemented within 36 hours of index patient symptom onset. These findings suggest that nonpharmaceutical interventions are important for mitigation of pandemic and interpandemic influenza.”

    From the cited article by Benjamin J Cowling et al. Ann Intern Med. 2009.

    “ Mask use compliance was 76% in the ‘mask’ group and 12% in the ‘control’ group. Based on developing syndromic ILI, less contacts became symptomatic in the ‘mask’ tents compared to the ‘control’ tents (31% versus 53%, p= 0.04). However, laboratory results did not show any difference between the two groups. This pilot study shows that a large trial to assess the effectiveness of facemasks use at Hajj is feasible.”

    From the cited article by Osamah Barasheed et al. Infect Disord Drug Targets. 2014.

    “Face masks and hand hygiene combined may reduce the rate of ILI and confirmed influenza in community settings. These non-pharmaceutical measures should be recommended in crowded settings at the start of an influenza pandemic.”

    From the cited article by Allison E Aiello et al. PLoS One. 2012.

    “ Results: In an intention-to-treat analysis, rates of clinical respiratory illness (relative risk (RR) 0.61, 95% CI 0.18 to 2.13), ILI (RR 0.32, 95% CI 0.03 to 3.13) and laboratory-confirmed viral infections (RR 0.97, 95% CI 0.06 to 15.54) were consistently lower in the mask arm compared with control, although not statistically significant. A post hoc comparison between the mask versus no-mask groups showed a protective effect against clinical respiratory illness, but not against ILI and laboratory-confirmed viral respiratory infections.

    Conclusions: The study indicates a potential benefit of medical masks for source control, but is limited by small sample size and low secondary attack rates. Larger trials are needed to confirm efficacy of medical masks as source control.”

    “ Many countries are stockpiling face masks for use as a nonpharmaceutical intervention to control virus transmission during an influenza pandemic. We conducted a prospective cluster-randomized trial comparing surgical masks, non–fit-tested P2 masks, and no masks in prevention of influenza-like illness (ILI) in households. Mask use adherence was self-reported. During the 2006 and 2007 winter seasons, 286 exposed adults from 143 households who had been exposed to a child with clinical respiratory illness were recruited. We found that adherence to mask use significantly reduced the risk for ILI-associated infection, but <50% of participants wore masks most of the time. We concluded that household use of face masks is associated with low adherence and is ineffective for controlling seasonal respiratory disease. However, during a severe pandemic when use of face masks might be greater, pandemic transmission in households could be reduced.

    “Conclusions: Results suggest that household transmission of influenza can be reduced by the use of NPI, such as facemasks and intensified hand hygiene, when implemented early and used diligently. Concerns about acceptability and tolerability of the interventions should not be a reason against their recommendation.”

    I stopped here as this is all of the articles compiled for section A (which discusses the findings of the articles that discuss the use of face masks alone.

    It’s interesting that the study everyone here is discussing read all this data and discussed its conclusions in a way that seem to say masks don’t offer a benefit. It seems like the articles all seem to say that masks ARE important?

    This is good information, but the naysayers will point to the fact that this study is about influenza and not COVID-19.

    Where I live, face masks are mandatory however there are exclusions.

    I was shopping at my favorite local retailer and not wearing the mask which was a reqiurment. when approached by management for disobeying the order, I informed them that I had a medical condition which Exempted me from wearing a mask. When the manager of the store inquired about my medical condition, I informed him, although I didn’t have to, that covering my mouth and nose triggered my PTSD, caused anxiety, and elevated my urge for homicidal tendencies. After that, they left me alone.????

    I know people who have lung cancer and other respiratory diseases who can’t wear a mask and face daily abuse in order to purchase needed groceries and items. Small business owners who have one or two employees manning the cash register are expected to stop what they are doing and chase people and ban them from their store. In NY Killer Cuomo can’t force individuals to wear a face diaper so he is threatening business owners with a daily extortion fine of $2000 .

    You want science. You always state that. Well, here is your very own science.

    Everyone, check out The Healthy American Peggy Hall on youtube. She also has a website. She’s fighting the mask chaos in California and organizing people to fight back. She knows the law and face masks are NOT LAW.

  31. John S says:

    The author forgot to mention that the review paper also says that hand hygiene does not have an effect in preventing transmission. That’s it, quit washing your hands often and don’t buy any more hand sanitizer. From the article:

    “Evidence from RCTs of hand hygiene or face masks did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza, and limited evidence was available on other environmental measures.”

  32. John S says:

    The author of this post will also be interested in this earlier article that says the opposite, it says:

    “Our results indicate that surgical face masks could prevent transmission of human coronaviruses and influenza viruses from symptomatic individuals.”

    The author should rewrite his post, discussing this other article. If he doesn’t, he’s non-scientific. In the extreme.

      Hi John S, I’m John V, not the author but have had a look at the article you directed us to. Thanks for that. The article, written by about 10 authors from Hong Kong, says in the abstract, that the study shows masks “could” help in the stop of transmission. If you look at the work of Professor Carl Heneghan, Professor of Evidence-based Medicine at Oxford University, he will show you why such studies are what he calls “low quality” i.e. not worth reading. Heneghan says there are 12 proper studies (randomised control trials) which all say masks spread disease rather than suppress it. The paper you kindly referred us to has these problems in my view: they are observational studies rather than randomised control trials; Hong Kong University is not as independent as Oxford and the huge number of authors makes one suspicious, don’t you think? Thanks once again – reasoned debate is the only way forward.

    Hi Jon. I came across this youtube video that proves masks DO NOT work:
