This post is mostly for our opposition, who continue to refuse to call out the deception of our government on the extremely damaging mask campaign that has been dividing Islanders unnecessarily since last October. There is no end in sight to this insane policy, nor even any talk of an end, or what would need to happen to end the requirement to wear masks, even being vaccinated not being sufficient grounds!
If science was being followed, as Premier King repeatedly states is the case with his government – then a declaration stating that masks should be chucked in the garbage immediately would be issued today.
“MR. PREMIER AND DR. MORRISON” [DRUMROLL] “LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO THE INDISPUTABLE SCIENCTIFIC FACTS ABOUT FACE MASKS”
A recent study reported by the NCBI, which is under the National Institutes of Health, showed that masks do absolutely nothing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and their use is even harmful.
Here is the full study:
The NCBI study begins with the following abstract:
“Many countries across the globe utilized medical and non-medical facemasks as non-pharmaceutical intervention for reducing the transmission and infectivity of [the] coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). Although, scientific evidence supporting facemasks’ efficacy is lacking, adverse physiological, psychological and health effects are established. It has been hypothesized that facemasks have compromised safety and efficacy profile and should be avoided from use. The current article comprehensively summarizes scientific evidence[s] with respect to wearing facemasks in the COVID-19 era, providing proper information for public health and decision making.”
The study concludes:
What were those words from the Premier again? Oh yeah:
“Whether it’s COVID or many other things that I think, with good research, good data, good science and good advice, you make good decisions. That’s the way we will continue to proceed.”
Despite being published on a US Government website, [The US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health], good ole sucker-borg wouldn’t let me post this article on F–b–k…giving me the severest warnings and response I’ve gotten to date when I tried.
The first pop-up from the Faceborg was a stern warning: if I was to be so foolish as to proceed (which they had a button for with the words “proceed anyways”) then so be it, there’d be a big price for me to pay…my traffic would likely be significantly reduced.
They say curiosity killed the cat, but not being a member of the feline genus of animal, I hit “proceed anyway”…uh, anyway.
That turned out to be a total ruse, obviously to make me think that the Faceborg wasn’t really being the big–bad censor police as I thought, just informative and politely diplomatic. But guess what? Like mom always said, you just can’t trust the borg: they were being the censor police after all!
When I clicked “proceed anyways.” I wasn’t permitted to proceed anywhere, but had my entire post locked-up tighter than a bank vault at midnight. I couldn’t even edit my own post!
This official narrative-killing article was picked up by ZERO mainstream media outlets, and Big Tech tyrants will suspend anyone who trys to post it, as political strategist Steve Cortes learned the hard way. The Tweet itself featured a quote and a link that prompted Twitter to suspend his account, potentially indefinitely.
He was quoting directly from the NCBI publication of the study. The government website he linked to features a peer-reviewed study by Baruch Vainshelboim.In it, he cited 67 scholars, doctors, scientists, and other studies to support his conclusions.
Send this to the Premier and MLAs and ask them if they honestly think that Islanders are really so stupid to believe that our government is being sincere when the very thing they say they are committed to following is being entirely ignored: namely, the best science available!
Everyone wore masks during the 1918 flu pandemic. They were useless.

People called them “flu fences” and “chin sails.” Gala attendees fastened theirs with gaudy earrings. Smokers cut flaps in them, and movie houses gave them away with tickets.
During the influenza pandemic of 1918, officials often advised Americans to wear face masks in public. Doctors believed that masks could help prevent “spray infections,” according to historian John M. Barry in his book, “The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History.” Enforced by local health officials, the facial coverings grew routine. Often, Red Cross chapters fashioned and distributed the masks that were “seen everywhere and would become a symbol of the epidemic,” Barry wrote. Americans used the masks as a method of retaining some normalcy, and as the only aspect of the epidemic discussable with any sense of play.
If directed to wear a mask, homemade worked. “Take a piece of gauze the size of a sheet of typewriter paper,” said instructions in the Atlanta Constitution. “Fold it twice, so that it will fit an envelope. Then attach strings to the four corners and tie these strings at the back of the neck. The mask covers the nose and mouth, so that the wearer breathes through four thicknesses of gauze. A clean handkerchief is just as good as the gauze.”
Now, amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is debating whether it should recommend that people wear masks when they go outside. In 1918, with a different virus, it didn’t help.
Iowa’s State Board of Health reminded those sewing masks to add some “colored worsted [a type of yarn] or tape” on the part of the mask that would be the outside. The upper margin was to be drawn tightly over the bridge of the nose, right under the eyes. Masks were to be washed after each use, not touched once they were tied on, and boiled for five minutes before wearing again.
The masks disrupted lives in unexpected ways. A San Francisco fisherman said “bandits” in flu masks robbed him. A woman taking a train from Chicago to Pasadena, California, reportedly experienced a break from sanity when she disembarked and “beheld the masked city,” according to a story in the Los Angeles Times. And columnist Fay King bemoaned the new mustaches. Men who formerly “couldn’t bear to have [a] hairy lip classed with a tooth brush” were growing facial hair, now hidden behind the masks.
On Nov. 1, 1918, Eugene C. Caley became the first man in Oakland, California, to be arrested for not wearing a mask. He was released on bail, although similar scofflaws in San Francisco had been sentenced to up to 10 days in jail. (Departments donated revenue from fines to the Red Cross.)
“This is only the beginning,” said the chief of police, according to the Oakland Tribune. “We are going to enforce this mask ordinance if we have to pack the city jail with people. This epidemic is too serious to be taken as a joke, and men arrested … will find that it’s no laughing matter when they face the police judges.”
Some complained that the masks were “unsanitary,” and bureaucratic confusion could stymie whether they were worn. In Alexandria, Louisiana, a sanitation leader for the Army ordered flu masks be worn. But waiters removed theirs because their local public health official said that the masks prevented “free breathing,” according to the Town Talk.
Tobacco-chewing workers were “kept busy putting the masks on and off” to spit, reported the Fort Wayne Sentinel, while smokers became creative. One cigar vendor made doors in masks so that her wares could be enjoyed, reported the Oakland Tribune. One man fashioned a cigarette holder from a long rubber tube, and another simply shoved his mask up over his forehead.
“I am 75 years old and have been living in this state 67 years,” a man named E. Piercy told a police court, according to Los Angeles’ Evening Express. “I must have my smoke, and I’m not going to give up my tobacco for a cheesecloth muzzle!”
Touting their ability to distract an anxiety-ridden public, movie houses remained open, as long as viewers wore masks. At the Riley in Greenfield, Ind., if you had your own mask, admission was 6 and 11 cents. If you needed the theater to provide one, admission went up to 10 or 15 cents.
The Riley, its advertisement said, had been disinfected. So had the Coliseum dance hall in Rock Island, Illinois. “Aseptic spray, etc.,” said its advertisement, which reminded dancers to bring their masks. “Don’t forget the big Duck and Goose call this Saturday.”
Through the attempts to make wearing masks seem normal, positioned at stores alongside everyday things such as tobacco, mustache grooming and dancing, the grim truth persisted.
“The masks worn by millions were useless as designed and could not prevent influenza,” Barry wrote. “Only preventing exposure to the virus could.”
