Kids Should Not be wearing masks in school. Period. Full Stop.

Masks are for Halloween. Masks are for Doctors who want to prevent droplets from entering a patients open body cavity. Masks are for bank robbers. Masks are not for children. Period. First of all, there is overwhelming and irrefutable evidence showing that masks simply do not work to ‘stop the spread’. As a matter of fact, I’ve been saying this and showing evidence for more than a year.

Here’s a post I wrote last November – it aged well and can be applied to the Governor’s latest actions:

“Of course as per usual with this governor, he offered no context. No discussion of how long people have been in a hospital or what illness brought them to visit in the first place. He’s only reporting “cases” while we’ve had more than 5 million tests in New Jersey, and still our hospitals are for the most part empty, or at least at their expected seasonal capacity. Actual hospitalizations and deaths are very low, especially as a percentage of the positive tests. If we just listened to the docs, we should be celebrating positive tests as a march toward herd immunity. But this governor would rather use the tests as a way to keep you down.

All of this recent noise is to signal a shut down which I suspect is coming next week. MVC offices closing again. Curfew for restaurants and all while we enter flu season. The gov and his cronies timed this perfectly to continue their reckless and deadly lockdown. With a PCR test that can be counted multiple times per person and is not an indicator of illness, they can keep this going indefinitely. Don’t forget approximately 90% of the positive PCR tests are inaccurate as a measure of disease. Sad really.

A false metric that has changed over months in order to perpetuate power that many people believe the governor is exercising illegally. Job losses, suicides, drug abuse, domestic violence and child abuse, not to mention excess deaths from everything else that kills people every year. On the small business side, some estimate that half the restaurants in New Jersey will never open again.

Here’s what I would do if I were governor:

Live your life. Open our businesses. See your family, yes, even the old ones. Let docs and our immune systems do what they do. COVID is like the flu except less deadly when it comes to younger healthy people. Lockdowns are more deadly than all of it. And the current lockdown strategy is actually working to delay herd immunity which is why humans have survived despite the failure to eradicate viruses from the globe.”

Here’s an article I wrote last May about the ‘mask theater’ which clearly has nothing to do with public health.

“We also can point to the Danish government for pushing back and refusing to require masks on public transportation.

“The Danish Health Authority does not recommend that healthy people who move around in public generally wear face masks,” the authority explains in a Question and Answer section on its website.

“This is partly because it is uncertain whether it has an effect on the spread of infection, but also because we must ensure that we will not lack face masks where they are most important, in the health and care sector.” – from an article www.thelocal.dk

Other docs and medical professionals also weighing in supporting the conclusion that the general public should NOT be wearing masks all the time, especially cloth masks. Here’s one of the recent follow up studies to address the same conclusion from 2015, increased infection rates and nearly zero benefit from cloth masks stopping viruses from penetrating.

Results The rates of all infection outcomes were highest in the cloth mask arm, with the rate of ILI statistically significantly higher in the cloth mask arm (relative risk (RR)=13.00, 95% CI 1.69 to 100.07) compared with the medical mask arm. Cloth masks also had significantly higher rates of ILI compared with the control arm. An analysis by mask use showed ILI (RR=6.64, 95% CI 1.45 to 28.65) and laboratory-confirmed virus (RR=1.72, 95% CI 1.01 to 2.94) were significantly higher in the cloth masks group compared with the medical masks group. Penetration of cloth masks by particles was almost 97% and medical masks 44%.

Conclusions This study is the first RCT of cloth masks, and the results caution against the use of cloth masks. This is an important finding to inform occupational health and safety. Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection. Further research is needed to inform the widespread use of cloth masks globally. However, as a precautionary measure, cloth masks should not be recommended for HCWs, particularly in high-risk situations, and guidelines need to be updated. — research from bmjopen.bmj.com

Here’s another doc drawing a similar conclusion to the WHO & Danish Gov’t AND pointing out the additional dangers of wearing a mask. Here’s the pull quote from the neurosurgeon about the lack of knowledge and evidence on efficacy:

As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent careful examination of the literature, in which 17 of the best studies were analyzed, concluded that, “ None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.”1 Keep in mind, no studies have been done to demonstrate that either a cloth mask or the N95 mask has any effect on transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Any recommendations, therefore, have to be based on studies of influenza virus transmission. And, as you have seen, there is no conclusive evidence of their efficiency in controlling flu virus transmission. — Russel Blaylock, MD on technocracy.news

It’s time for civil disobedience. No child should be forced to wear a mask. Day care providers and law enforcement should simply ignore the new edicts from the governor. Saying that your hands are tied because ‘it’s the rule”…and I’m just following along so I don’t risk my job is not acceptable.

History is full of examples of people “following orders”…and history isn’t kind to those who hurt people because they were “following orders”. Stand up for yourself and your children. Start acting like an American. Looks like we’re gonna have to fight to earn the line in our anthem…”Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.”
