How Unhealthy Covid Masks Are for Children

Whatever reasons the liberal ruling class has for continuing to inflict Covid masks, they are not trying to improve our health. Any American adult who wants a Covid vaccine already has it. For young children, “the risk of serious complications is higher for flu compared with COVID-19,” according to the CDC. As noted at Townhall,

[W]e on Team Reality have not only continued to point to real-world data that shows masking to be entirely ineffective, we’ve also maintained that forced public masking, especially long-term, has negative societal and even health ramifications that the powers-that-be are all-too-happy to ignore in subservience to their newfound face mask god.

These health ramifications are worse than we knew:

A group of parents in Gainesville, FL, sent 6 face masks to a lab at the University of Florida, requesting an analysis of contaminants found on the masks after they had been worn. The resulting report found that five masks were contaminated with bacteria, parasites, and fungi, including three with dangerous pathogenic and pneumonia-causing bacteria. Although the test is capable of detecting viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, only one virus was found on one mask (alcelaphine herpesvirus 1).

Pathogens found on the masks cause pneumonia, tuberculosis, meningitis, keratitis, food poisoning, Lyme disease, Legionnaire’s disease, and sepsis.

Harmful pathogens are all around us. Collecting them on our faces and rebreathing them for hours on end is not healthy.

Then there is the obvious issue of hypoxia.

The masks are a symbol of compliance, not a health measure. Forcing children to wear them is child abuse.

Masters and Slaves: Covid Tyranny Continues

Fifteen months after “3 weeks to flatten the curve,” Britain remains in police state lockdown, despite the availability of Covid vaccine even for people too young to need it, and despite the increasingly obvious futility of imposing lockdowns to contain the disease. Authoritarians don’t ever want to let this nightmare go:

Just as Black Lives Matter/Antifa types will seize on the slightest pretext to riot and loot, statists need only the thinnest excuse to impose outrageous restrictions, since so many people are willing to put up with them.

Imagine how many years decades lockdown will last next time something as bad as the Spanish flu comes around.

Smoking Bats at Wuhan Institute of Virology

The “smoking bat” Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) mentioned has turned up, not at any wet market, but at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and in large numbers, as Sharri Markson reports on Australia’s Sky News:

From the beginning, the West helped make a monster by assisting the ChiComs at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The French helped them build it, then were kicked out. US taxpayers apparently helped finance their gain of function research thanks to Tony Fauci. The ChiCom-friendly Democratic Party and its affiliated establishment media have continued to lend the tyrants a hand by suppressing the origin of Covid. But this is not something they can hide forever.

The question now is not so much whether Covid is an engineered bat virus that escaped from this lab, as whether it was intended as a bioweapon, and whether it was released onto the world deliberately.

Maxime Bernier Arrested for Covid Violations

Canadian politician Maxime Bernier was a cabinet minister under Stephen Harper and served as an MP 2006–2019. He is founder and leader of the People’s Party of Canada, having abandoned the Conservative Party over its sellout embrace of political correctness, corporate welfare, et cetera. He is also a Covid criminal. In the second year of the ChiCom virus, Canadians continue to witness scenes like this one on Friday:

Rebel News reports:

Bernier was in Manitoba with a plan to host events in multiple cities, but was warned by the province’s public health authorities that he would be required to quarantine for 14 days upon arriving in the province.

The People’s Party leader instead vowed to continue on with his rallies in spite of the warning. …

Bernier has been on a speaking tour across the country, holding rallies calling for an end to lockdowns and for a return to normalcy. He has received numerous charges for hosting these political rallies…

At least the Canadian Covid Gestapo is blandly polite as it hauls you off to jail for exercising fundamental rights like peaceably assembling.

Bernier is in good company. Recall that courageous pastor Artur Pawlowski was arrested last month on similar charges.

Life Without Medical Privacy

One of the many rights canceled in the name of ChiCom virus hysteria is medical privacy. If people have a right to know whether you have been vaccinated, why shouldn’t they demand your status regarding other communicable diseases? JP Sears demonstrates what we should expect life to be like after we have relinquished the right to medical privacy:

Covid Brings Youth Mental Health Crisis to a Head

For whatever reason, Big Government wants teenagers to get the jab, regardless of whether this makes any medical sense. To advance this objective, the politicized CDC released a report last week presenting a cherry-picked slice of data to support the false claim that adolescent hospitalizations from Covid are rising, when actually they have fallen steeply. In contrast, a mental health crisis among adolescents, driven by overreaction to Covid, is spinning out of control, as a pair of doctors reveal in the Wall Street Journal:

[W]hile the CDC oversold the teen Covid narrative, it failed to emphasize the most troubling aspect of its study: 20% of teen hospitalizations in the study between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2021, were for psychiatric emergencies, not Covid.

Lockdowns have exacerbated eating disorders. Availability of elective mental health visits has been limited, as has counseling provided through schools shut down by teachers’ unions. Meanwhile,

Data from Children’s Hospital of Oakland show a 66% increase in 10- to 17-year-olds screening positive for active or recent suicidal ideation in its emergency department between March and October 2020.

The proportion of children seeking emergency mental-health services who required immediate hospitalization, including for eating disorders, rose 75% in 2020 compared with 2019.

A spokesman for the John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, California gasped in May 2020 that his institution had seen “a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks.”

CDC data also show a rise in the proportion of mental-health-related emergency-department visits for children in 2020 compared with 2019: 5- to 11-year-olds saw a 24% increase, and 12- to 17-year-olds a 31% increase. The Children’s Hospital Association reported a nearly 20% rise in admissions for suicide attempts and a more than 40% increase in admissions for children with disruptive behavior disorders.

In late May, Colorado Children’s Hospital issued a press release declaring a “state of emergency” due to demands for pediatric mental-health services, with mental-health emergency-department visits up 90% in 2021 compared with 2019. … Connecticut reported a similar surge.

Suicide by kids under 18 reportedly rose in California by 24% from 2019 to 2020, even as adult suicide declined by 11%. In contrast,

Of California’s 62,000 Covid deaths since the pandemic’s start, only 23 have been people under 18.

Covid is not a serious direct threat to youth, yet they are much more vulnerable to the psychiatric fallout caused by the hysteria of their elders.

Considering the current ascendancy of moonbattery, it is no surprise that teen suicide is on the rise. Adolescents are taught that they are inherently bad because of their race. Their heritage is depicted as shameful. They are told that the planet is doomed, and that their presence on it makes matters worse. They watch as elderly people like Biden and Pelosi flagrantly waste the nation’s wealth, leaving them to pay the bill as economic opportunity is crushed by inflation, debt, and ever-increasing regulation. They see the border deliberately left open, like the slit wrist of someone who has decided to end it all. The liberal ideology they are submersed in offers no redemption, no meaning, no hope, and no future.

The Covid lockdowns have brought moonbattery-induced despair to a head. Too bad there is no vaccine for that.

Gavin Newsom Clings to Covid Emergency Powers

It couldn’t last forever. Largely thanks to the previous administration’s Operation Warp Speed, the ChiCom pandemic is winding down. But some Democrats can’t bear to let it go — like Gavin Newsom:

One year and three months have passed since Governor Gavin Newsom announced California’s COVID-19 state of emergency.

He still won’t lift it, despite the crisis being effectively over, even though the state is officially reopening on June 15, when he promised he would relinquish his emergency powers.

Newsom’s tyranny affects even those Americans fortunate enough not to live under his rule. The whole country gets to help pay the bills he runs up:

The state of emergency gives Newsom the broad authority to suspend and impose new rules in California, and also allows the federal government to cover the state’s COVID-19-related costs. …

During this emergency, Newsom has issued 58 executive orders to change or suspend hundreds of laws.

Other states have either dropped their state of emergency or at least plan to by the end of summer. But California is the leftist vanguard. Now that Democrats know how much people will put up with, a state of emergency will inevitably be established on a permanent basis. Next time it will be in the name of a crisis that doesn’t exist, so they won’t have to worry about it ending. Global warming and white supremacy are leading candidates.

Biden: Covid Deaths Are Up

The good news is that Covid cases are down. The bad news: Covid deaths are up. At least, that’s what our fearless leader says:

For once, Biden is only half wrong. Both cases and deaths have been falling for a while now, leaving his party in need of a new crisis to justify its power grabs and wasteful deficit spending. Global warming may serve their purposes, even if no one takes it seriously except children and Democrats.

In the meantime, maybe they should try larger print on Biden’s teleprompter.

Fauci: Gain of Function Research Worth the Risk

Highest paid bureaucrat Tony Fauci has lamely denied that he funneled US taxpayer money to our Chinese communist enemies to fund the gain of function research that apparently resulted in the Wuhan coronavirus. But even if he did fund the GoF research, it was worth the risk. Fauci has said so himself:

The Weekend Australian unearthed a paper Fauci wrote for the American Society for Microbiology in October 2012 in which he argued in support of gain-of-function research. Such research involves making viruses more infectious and/or deadly. …

The Weekend Australian report adds that Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, did not alert senior White House officials before lifting a ban on gain-of-function research in 2017.

Fauci acknowledged that scientists could become infected with an experimental virus, and that this could lead to a pandemic. Then he declared,

Scientists working in this field might say – as indeed I have said – that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks. …

Within the research community, many have expressed concern that important research progress could come to a halt just because of the fear that someone, somewhere, might attempt to replicate these experiments sloppily.

As we learned from Chernobyl, the place to have science done sloppily is in a communist country. Communists ascribe little value to human life, so safety is not a priority.

Ticketed for Shaking Hands

Dr Fauci has proclaimed that the millennia-old tradition of shaking hands may need to be canceled. Looks like his suggestion is taking root in the tyranny-friendly soil to our north:

If people will tolerate being penalized for talking to each other and for shaking hands, what won’t they put up with? How long before a society that does not insist on even the most basic freedom degenerates into a police state?

Covid Hysteria as a Cult

The exaggerated piousness moonbats display regarding masks and vaccines goes beyond virtue signaling. It is the mark of a cult. This explains their bizarre worship of the clueless, admittedly dishonest, race-baiting technocrat Anthony Fauci, who likely had a role in creating the virus, and who serves as the Jim Jones of the cult, egging on his eagerly exploited followers to guzzle the Kool-Aid.

Paul Joseph Watson presents a brief anthropological study of Covid hysteria as a cult:

Ten-Year-Old Schools School Board on Mask Madness

After this lesson from fourth grader John Provenzano, the hysterical Covid tyrants running the schools in Martin County, Florida won’t be able to sit down for a week:

There was never any sane reason to make kids wear masks, much less to close schools. Smart children can figure out that this is crazy; why can’t Democrats?

Profiles in Covid Tyranny: Dr Zubaida Haque

Some of the experts who have been grinding even the most basic liberties under their heels in the name of Covid are not as expert as you might expect. For example, Dr Zubaida Haque appeared on Good Morning Britain Tuesday to denounce the government for beginning to ease lockdown restrictions. Haque is a member of Independent SAGE, which describes itself as “a group of scientists who are working together to provide independent scientific advice to the UK government and public on how to minimise deaths and support Britain’s recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.”

The Telegraph reports:

Dr Zubaida Haque, a founding member of the group, specialises in racial equality and has been involved with various government-commissioned reports on welfare issues. …

It was one of Dr Haque’s many TV interviews and newspaper columns since the pandemic began, ranging in scope from vaccine passports and the reopening of schools to financial support for low-paid workers needing to self-isolate.

She has no qualifications related to virology, epidemiology, or any other branch of medicine. Her PhD thesis was entitled, “Exploring the Validity and Possible Causes of the Apparently Poor Performances of Bangladeshi Students in British Secondary Schools.” Let me guess; racism is to blame.

Like “Dr” Jill Biden and communist/war criminal/ChiCom tool/World Health Organization Director-General “Dr” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the honorific before her name signifies that she holds a doctorate in moonbattery, not that she is a medical doctor or particularly intelligent.

However, she is a left-wing Woman of Color, so it would be racist and sexist not to accede to her demands.

She now works for the Hamilton Commission, an organisation set up by Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton to improve the representation of Black people in UK motorsport.

It is doubtful that Dr Zubaida accomplishes this objective by helping them to drive faster. Merit is racist.

In the future, people will carry lemon meringue pies with them at all times so that they can respond appropriately whenever a petty tyrant starts to squawk, “I’m an expert, and in the name of science I demand…”

The Walls Are Falling Around Dr Fauci

Life was humming along fine until Covid emerged from behind the Bamboo Curtain. The American economy had never been healthier. Now the economy is in ruins, the federal government is under the control of radical leftists, and freedoms Americans had taken for granted for centuries are endangered. People want to know what caused the disease that changed their country, possibly forever, regardless of how insistently the liberal media tries to suppress our curiosity.

The bombshell piece by Nicholas Wade supports suspicion that the virus was deliberately engineered at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Anthony Fauci — the face of the tyranny leftists have exploited Covid as a pretext to inflict — has not been convincing in his denial of funding its creation with our money. This story could be too huge for the media to suppress.

Dinesh D’Souza brings us up to date:

Fauci now croaks that Covid should be viewed through the lens of our supposed racism. He may be echoing the critical race theory duckspeak of the Biden Regime out of duty — or out of desperation as he feels his exalted position slipping. Accusations of racism are the last refuge of the left-wing scoundrel.

If Fauci falls off his pedestal, how much of the liberal establishment will he take down with him? Leftists have not finished consolidating control. They could still be dislodged from power peacefully if enough people get wise to them in time.
