CDC: 85% of Mask Wearers Contract Coronavirus

I have covered the topic of mask wearing extensively in several previous posts, including a post with 29 links to studies and papers regarding this topic (Go HERE).

In July 2020 the CDC conducted a study (Go HERE).  The conclusions in that study are as follows:

The CDC studied patients with coronavirus and researchers found that 71% of the case-patients contracted the virus despite reporting “always” wearing a cloth face covering or mask at least 14 days before illness onset, and 14 percent contracted the virus despite reporting “often” wearing one at least 14 days before illness onset.

Those are extraordinary results directly implying masks do not stop (or slow) the spread of COVID19, and might contribute to the propagation of the virus. These findings line-up well with many of the studies and papers referred to in our post linked in the first paragraph above (GO HERE).

These data align well with the recent statement from the World Health Organization (Go HERE), in which they found the coronavirus death rate has plummeted to .13% (from their 3.4% projection in March 2020. That March rate was 26 times the current rate). There is every likelihood the rate may come down further.

It is important to note that the WHO has stated the annual flu death rate is approximately .10%, which means the COVID19 death rate has dropped to near flu levels. Another critical finding by the WHO is they now estimate 760,000,000 people have been infected at some time during this pandemic, that is 20 times the confirmed cases.

To all Catholics: Critical Video

If you plan to vote for Vice President Biden, please watch this video (homily). It is from Father Edward Meeks delivered at Christ the King parish in Towson, MD on 10/11/2020. I see no reason to post a summary since Father Meeks lays out the church’s case with such clarity, that I would rather encourage you to watch the video and to share it with as many people as possible.  

Go HERE to watch the video.

Face masks do NOT work! (29 LINKS TO STUDIES AND PAPERS)

No matter where people fall on the issue of wearing masks, the landscape of our nation has changed over this topic. Let us have a look at contrary views regarding the public wearing masks. As always, with these matters, we leave the final conclusions regarding these data points in your capable hands.


This is a shocker!

NBC News actually reports Sweden never implemented a COVID-19 lockdown but is faring better than other nations, asks if it could be the ‘pandemic roadmap’ for the US

This article i not entirely about mask wearing, yet the subject is covered, and the fact that NBC is raising Sweden to national attention is a massive surprise.

The CDC Admission: Mask Effectiveness up in flames
September 12, 2020

Quote from the paper: “Surgical facemasks are designed to be discarded after single use,” the researchers wrote. “As they become moist they become porous and no longer protect. Indeed, experiments have shown that surgical and cotton masks do not trap the SARS‐CoV‐2 (COVID‐19) virus, which can be detected on the outer surface of the masks for up to 7days. Thus, a pre‐symptomatic or mildly infected person wearing a facemask for hours without changing it and without washing hands every time they touched the mask could paradoxically increase the risk of infecting others.”

Sweden does not mandate mask wearing. Sweden has 5,697 coronavirus deaths (a national mortality rate of .05%). Of that total, 5,079 coronavirus deaths were among people 70 years old, and older. They have 618 deaths among all people under the age of 70 (a mortality rate of .006% for those under 70). Sweden officials admit they should have protected the elderly, which could have saved 5,000 lives. Sweden never locked down, and Swedes do not wear masks–they have had high success handling the virus (other than the elderly).

Summary

Chances are these resources will not modify how you view mask wearing, at this point people are entrenched in their views. Whatever you make of these resources, please understand that science regarding mask wearing has been around for many years and those who reject mask mandates are not doing so without science. People on both sides are attempting to take the correct actions, while also following the science.

We will experience a refreshing change when companies, retail stores, and the government shift to a mode of offering guidance and recommendations, rather than strict draconian mandates.

Let us hope and pray that a spirit of calmness descends upon the USA and the world.

American’s have lost their critical thinking Skills! Masks don’t work!

As we approach November, 2020 it seems many people have loss their critical thinking skills. I have posted 29 links from studies and papers that show masks do not stop or slow the spread (Go Here), yet the calls for mask wearing has increased, not lessened. Let’s consider these facts: 

1. All major retailers mandate mask wearing.
2. Malls mandate mask wearing.
3. Churches (and other places of worship) mandate mask wearing.
4. Companies and businesses mandate mask wearing.
5. Attendance at nearly all public gatherings mandate mask wearing.
6. Schools that are open require mask wearing.
7. Restaurants and bars require mask wearing.

Let us put this together. On October 23, 2020 results from a survey show 90% of Americans wear masks (Go HERE). Consider the absolute massive use of mask wearing across the nation and then consider what is going on with the COVID19 virus…day after day we hear and see reported that we are reaching new highs in positive cases. This leads to an important question:

If masks stop or slow the spread, and since 90% of Americans are wearing masks in most places in their lives, shouldn’t cases be dropping, not rising at such incredible rates? 

Let’s consider another recent study/development. In July 2020 the CDC conducted a study (Go HERE).  The conclusions in that study are as follows:

The CDC studied patients with coronavirus and researchers found that 71% of the case-patients contracted the virus despite reporting “always” wearing a cloth face covering or mask at least 14 days before illness onset, and 14 percent contracted the virus despite reporting “often” wearing one at least 14 days before illness onset.

Those results support the survey stating 90% of people wear masks. It also supports the clear conclusion that masks do not stop or slow the spread of the virus. 

Why is mask wearing an important practice to stop?

  1. Despite what many may think, long term mask wearing has the potential to create health problems for the wearers (see the studies linked in the first paragraph). 
  2. Mask wearing takes away our humanity by making us faceless robots with no outward personality.
  3. Mask wearing has created fear in many people. 
  4. Mask shaming has resulted in conflicts.
  5. Mask wearing has changed our national personality, with freedoms and liberties being washed away.

There are many who feel that the impacts of wearing masks (above) are worth experiencing to stop or the slow the spread. Yet, a loss of freedoms, and a loss of our humanity, are not easy things to regain once given away. Yet, more importantly, masks do not stop or slow the spread as the studies and the increasing cases counts prove. Therefore, suffering the impacts listed above is most definitely NOT worth experiencing since masks simply do not, nor can they ever, slow or stop the spread of respiratory viruses.

Here’s a final important questions: after all these months of wearing masks, is it not reasonable to conclude that mask wearing is the act that is causing the spread of the virus?

Do you follow “The Science” regarding COVID19?

We’ve all heard people say (over and over) they follow the science behind the coronavirus. Yet, it seems those people really mean they are following “scientists,” which is not the same thing.

When it comes to the science, I have published several posts about wearing masks and in those posts I list 29 links to studies and papers from scientists who state masks do not stop or slow the spread of the coronavirus (Go HERE).

Today, we bring to you what I feel (if this information went viral) should end all lockdowns. The American Institute for Economic Research hosted a meeting of top epidemiologists, economists, and journalists, to discuss the global emergency created by the unprecedented use of state compulsion in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic. Here is an excerpt from their site:

After a brief explanation of the strategy, and a discussion of the astonishing costs of lockdown, the Declaration concludes: “Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume.”

The primary authors and signers of the document are 

  • Dr. Martin Kulldorff, Professor, Medicine, Harvard Medical School.
  • Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Professor,  Medicine, Stanford University.
  • Dr. Sunetra Gupta, Professor, Theoretical Epidemiology, University of Oxford.

Along with the primary authors, there are no less than 34 direct co-signers to their main document. You can find the list of co-signers at the link below, yet among the list are many PHDs, MDs, and scientists. It is an impressive list ofv experts from a wide swath of the world. In addition, there are 1,722 Medical and Public Health Scientists who signed their document and there are 1,954 Medical Practitioners who signed the document.  

Please, go to the links below and read what they have to say–you will then be following the science that goes beyond Fauci. The intent of their work is to see our lives go back to normal now, not later and certainly not after further damage is done. 

AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR ECONOMIC RESEARCH (Go HERE)

THE BARRINGTON DECLARATION (Go HERE).

Considering these new numbers, when do we end all lockdowns and mask wearing?

We know the COVID19 case and death counts are inflated (Go HERE and go HERE), and we know masks do not work (Go HERE and HERE), yet let us assume the official numbers are correct…using those numbers, the CDC updated (Go HERE) their estimated infection fatality rates for COVID (think about how low the numbers would be if we had accurate death counts). Here are the updated survival rates by age group:

0-19: 99.997%

20-49: 99.98%

50-69: 99.5%

70+: 94.6%


As we’ve known for months, people 70 and older are in a high risk group.

Since survival rates are so high, and since we know masks do not work, some obvious questions rise:

1. Since people under 20 are at almost no risk, why aren’t all schools open?

2. Since those aged 20 through 69 are in a minimal risk group, why do we have any lockdowns and mask wearing?

3. Shouldn’t we now end all lockdowns and mask mandates immediately?

4. If these incredibly good numbers do not cause us to end the lockdowns and mask wearing, at what threshold will we take that critical step?

5. When will our politicians take the next step to extract us from the damage the lockdowns and mask wearing is doing to our nation?

Voting for Trump is an easy Choice!

Voting for President Trump is an easy choice. Here are the (updated) reasons why I will vote for Trump:


For the sanctity of human life and all unborn babies.

For the First Amendment and our rights outlined in it. 

For future Supreme Court justices, and to stop the left from packing the Supreme Court.

For the Second Amendment and our rights outlined given in it.

For the protection of constitutional principles.

For the Electoral College, and to stop the Democrats from abolishing it.

For the police and all law enforcement, and to stop the Democrats from defunding and banning police departments.

For our military and all veterans.

For the protection of our national history, good and bad, and to stop Democrats from their attempt to delete/cancel our history.

For the protection of our cities and states, and to stop the Democrats from their attempt to tear down our cities.

For the right to speak freely and to not be censored by anyone, and to stop the Democrats from using social media as serious form of censoring free speech.

For everyone’s right to freely and peacefully assemble, regardless of what is happening in the world.

For everyone’s right to freely practice their faith without interference from the government–regardless of what is happening in the world.

For everyone’s right to carve a path to personal happiness, as they deem correct.

For everyone’s right to leave our homes without permission from the state.

For the love of the United States of America.

For the love of our freedoms, and to stop the Democrats from bringing socialism to our country.

For the love of our freedoms, and to stop the Democrats from bringing communism to our country.

For the sake of our economy, and to stop the Democrats from raising taxes. 

For the love of God, and to stop Democrats from attacking our churches, temples, and mosques.

For the love of God, and to stop Democrats from attacking people of faith. 

Is the COVID19 Pandemic over?

I came across a well-respected site, Issues and Insights. The pieces states the following:

According to the Centers for Disease Control’s latest data, released six days ago, shows that, through Aug. 29, predicted excess deaths have moved below the threshold for excess deaths. (See chart below.) When we last wrote about this, after total deaths had for months exceeded the threshold, the two numbers were moving closer.

Stanford biophysics professor Michael Levitt, who won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, says the pandemic might have come to an end.

“CDC excess deaths to 29 Aug. are 14% below baseline as predicted in July. This is the first time since March that delay-corrected death data fell below baseline. Excess death in the Mar.-Aug. 20 COVID-19 season may be over. A huge milestone!” he tweeted Thursday.

Go HERE to read the piece.

I see no reason to rehash previous posts I have published, yet it is important for people to start adding the many data points together to reach a rational opinion. Couple the facts found in the (Issues and Insights) piece with the recent reports that a scant 6% of all COVID19 deaths listed are solely being caused by the virus, and couple the data with the reports that 90% of all COVID19 tests are resulting in a false positive, you will see the picture is much different than we are being told (Go HERE, and HERE and HERE).  Continue reading “Is the COVID19 Pandemic over?”

Why I will vote for Trump and the Republicans!

In previous posts, I discussed the reasons why I will not vote for any Democrat (you can find those posts here: POST1, POST2, POST3, POST4, POST5, POST6, POST7). In this piece, I will offer a general outline of why I plan to vote for President Trump and Republicans across the board. Take note that these general reasons are discussed in detail in the posts linked above.

It is my view that all of these issues and reasons will receive far better treatment by Trump and the Republicans than they will under any Democrat.


I am voting for the Trump/Pence ticket and all Republicans across the board, for the following reasons:

For the sanctity of human life and all unborn babies. 

For the First Amendment and our rights outlined in it.  

For future Supreme Court justices. 

For the Second Amendment and our rights outlined given in it. 

For the protection of constitutional principles.

For the Electoral College.

For the police and all law enforcement.

For our military and all veterans.

For the protection of our national history, good and bad.

For the protection of our cities and states.

For the right to speak freely and to not be censored by anyone.

For my right to freely and peacefully assemble, regardless of what is happening in the world.

For my right to freely practice my faith without interference from the government–regardless of what is happening in the world. 

For my right to carve a path to personal happiness, as I deem correct.

For my right to leave my home without permission from the state.

For the love of the United States of America.

These reasons comprise my deepest held reasons for voting for Trump/Pence and the Republicans. I believe we are NOT voting for the individuals, we are voting for what those individuals plan to do while in office.

In 2020, we have learned more about the left, than perhaps during any other time. The left offers an opposite mirror image of everything the USA has stood for throughout its history. The Democrats and the left are anti-life, anti-constitution, anti-freedom, anti-police, anti-law enforcement, anti-military, anti-second amendment rights, anti-first amendment rights, anti-Christian, anti-faith, anti-free speech, anti-personal happiness, anti-electoral college, anti-peace, anti-history, and anti-science.  

This should end the COVID19 response!

This post will be short and to the point. It seems there are two critical facts that have emerged regarding the coronavirus, and if one applies these facts to our response to the virus, everything should return to normal.

Fact 1: The CDC stated the following (go HERE for more):

Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups.

Fact 2: The New York times reports that 90% of all COVID19 tests result in false positives, which means a scant 10% of all tests are showing positive results (go HERE for more).

How do these two facts point to us ending our response to COVID19?

Death Count attributed to COVID19: 193,388

6% of those deaths are directly caused by COVID19 (see link above).


94% of those deaths are listed as COVID19 having influenced their deaths. However, those deaths are attributed to COVID19 because they tested positive for the virus, yet
90% of those who tested positive are false positives (see above).

Resulting numbers:

11,603 deaths are due to COVID19, alone (6% of 193,388).
18,178 deaths are influenced by COVID19 (10% of all those who died and had  an accurate positive test).

This means (at most): 29,781 people have died directly from COVID19, or from COVID19 influencing their death. 

Bottom line: 15.3% of all deaths listed are actually true COVID19 deaths (directly, or through the influence of the virus). It is unclear how anyone can argue with these numbers. The CDC declares 6% of all listed deaths were caused by the virus alone–the remaining 94% had 2.5 or more comorbidities and the only reason they were listed as virus deaths was because they tested positive, yet we now know 90% of all COVID19 tests produce a false positives.


Please pass this on.
