A lot of Americans got angry after the Biden administration on Tuesday lowered the boom about new mask mandates. Even people who are fully vaccinated are being told they have to wear a mask.
I want to say at the outset that I believe the whole reason for the new mask mandates and future lockdowns that are assuredly coming is to win the 2022 midterm elections and then they’re going to do it again for the 2024 general election.
They want you to wear a mask because it’s very visible when other people see one another. That mask reminds us that we are in a pandemic, even though we no longer are. Less than 500 people a day are dying from COVID-19 now. That’s down from over 4,000 in January.
By wearing the mask and being reminded of a pandemic every time you go out and see other people wearing a mask the government and their boot licking sycophants in the news media are able to scare you into thinking we are all going to die.
The Democrats want you to be so afraid that you will demand mail-in ballots again. Even though you stand in line for things all the time with no consequences, you are being conditioned to be terrified of standing in line to vote. You must be able to cast your ballot by mail.
They are stealing democracy right in front of us. The first time they pulled this in 2020 people were very skeptical but we still believed that there could be a pandemic virus out there that could kill us. Now that we know the pandemic is waning the government is going to have a much tougher time trying to convince us that even people who are vaccinated must wear a mask even when they’re inside. They’re starting this nonsense now so they can escalate over time so that people will be convinced if they go outside to vote they’re doomed. The virus gives you an exemption for grocery shopping, dining out, rioting, looting, and setting federal buildings on fire, but not for voting.
And now the Biden administration has further corrupted science by getting a peer review magazine in on the scam. What am I talking about?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) referred to an unpublished study from India to justify the agency’s Tuesday recommendation that fully vaccinated people “wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission” of COVID-19.
My state is very low right now for the Delta variant. If you go on a map of the United States showing outbreaks of COVID infections, you will see that as of this writing Pennsylvania isn’t experiencing high volume infections like many other states. Normally I would say drag me off to the giggle house and put me in a padded room for thinking this, but I put nothing past the Biden administration flying in a few thousand illegal migrants infected with COVID so they could spread it around the state. I and many others are convinced that is how the Delta variant is popping up in so many states. Intentionally or not the Biden administration has been flying illegal migrants to cities and towns all over the country and they are not testing them for COVID before they let them into the interior of the country. It has been reported that over 50,000 migrants have been let into the country and released without a hearing date. That means they will never appear before a judge for a hearing and they may have COVID, we have no way of knowing.
That study that the Biden administration cited said that the Delta variant produced an unusually large viral load in more than 100 vaccinated healthcare workers with “breakthrough infections.”
The problem is that study was listed as “reject” in the peer review journal Nature when the CDC cited it. Research Square is a preprint server for unpublished papers, studies, and research shows that it was marked “reject” on July 9 and it stayed that way all the way up until the night of July 26.
So the study was marked that it failed peer review until the day before the CDC wanted to use it to justify forcing children to wear masks in school and fully vaccinated people to wear masks even when indoors.
I think the CDC should never be trusted again. Radical progressive zealots has compromised it. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky blatantly lied on cable news recently when she said more children have died from COVID than the flu, even though according to the CDC’s own data it’s the exact opposite. Nearly twice as many children have died from influenza than COVID. Walensky didn’t care. She said it to try to justify making kids wear masks in school, and studies show that children wearing masks is not healthy for them.
According to a columnist named Phil Kerpen who took the time to look at the CDC’s own data, discovered that the CDC director has no idea what she’s talking about.
Here’s the truth based on Walensky’s agency’s own data:
From 2019 to 2020, according to the CDC, a total of 124 children died of COVID. From 2020 to 2021, 213 children died of COVID. By comparison, influenza killed more than 400 children just last year. In fact, that was not an abberation. Influenza has killed far more children than COVID has in each of the past five years. It’s not even close.
Early on Wednesday morning, that version on the peer review site was still live, the day after the CDC cited the study in its July 27 updated science brief, according to a Twitter user who posted a screenshot.
As you can see, the “reject” status and review notes were removed by later that morning and replaced with “posted,” suggesting Nature had approved the paper without revisions. Really? The notes were then restored and the status was changed to “revise,” showing the same date — July 9 — as the original “reject” status. In other words, they lied for the CDC.
So the @CDCgov cited a study out of India about breakthrough infections being transmissible. This paper was REJECTED after review!

The @CDCgov is literally wiping comments from the paper they used to change mask guidance. Look at the two screenshots. One from the wayback machine. One from just mins ago.

And it gets worse. The study that was done used the AstraZeneca vaccine which still has not been approved for use in the United States.
From Just the News:
Research Square addressed the confusion twice around noon Wednesday, blaming “a bug” and “a user interface error on our end.” It said the paper was still under review “and the current editorial decision is ‘Revise.'”
The review notes disappeared again from the “peer review timeline” later in the afternoon, leaving only a “current status” classification of the paper as “under review.” Research Square also posted a revised header clarifying that the paper was being considered by “a Nature Portfolio Journal,” not necessarily the flagship journal, and that it partners with the publisher on “a journal-integrated preprint deposition service.”
The representations of Research Square would mean the CDC cited deficient research to back its finding that “emerging data suggest [COVID vaccines have] lower effectiveness against confirmed infection and symptomatic disease” caused by the Delta variant, which is “now predominant in the United States.”
CDC Director Rachelle Walensky said fully vaccinated people “have just as much viral load as the unvaccinated, making it possible for them to spread the virus to others,” which is why all children should wear masks in schools, NBC News reported. The White House announced it would start requiring masks in its buildings Wednesday.
So the CDC justified forcing mask mandates again using a study that was rejected based on a vaccine that hasn’t yet been approved for use in the US. The study was marked as rejected for peer review and the CDC used it anyway because the conclusions, even rejected, fit Walensky’s narrative.
Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) pointed this out.
“Here’s the truth America:
The ‘game changer’ data the CDC used for the mask mandate is from a single study from India.
The study was rejected in peer review.
But CDC used it anyway.”

There are just too many of these weird irregularities coming from the CDC, and we are always expected to stand down and accept the so-called “expert’s” excuses for their screw ups. With this many problems found in their information delivered to the public, the experts are either incompetent or intentionally dishonest. You can decide which.
