On reviewing the actual science behind facemasks, we discover there is no evidence whatsoever they protect against any infectious disease. Worse, the majority of the science proves that facemasks cause asthma, allergies, and respiratory disease.
There is a Facemask Exemption form available at thedoctorwithin, and we describe how that works.
We also discuss the hidden demographic who are most affected by the radical new changes to the social order we're witnessing: children. How and why so many obstacles are being placed in the way of a return to normal - who benefits by these extravagant innovations, and why they're trying to make them permanent. And most of all, who are the ones most devastated, suffering the worst effects.
There is no other issue worth discussing in America today, more vital for our children's future. This is not the time to create sweeping political agendas that ignore science.
Now banned from Facebook. What is it they don't want you to know?
FACEMASK EXEMPTIONS – FACEMASK SCIENCE PODCAST 708
- Dr Tim O'Shea thedoctorwithin.com
For the first time in the history of the world, the population has been suddenly persuaded into thinking that if everyone wears facemasks it will stop the spread of infectious disease. Never BEFORE in the past 20 millennia have we seen such An extravagant belief so universally accepted by the entire world. In less than a month.
This is the result of allowing people with no educational requirements whatsoever – bureaucrats, legislators, governors, etc – to be in a position to mandate health decisions for an entire population.
This new politics has shifted the entire definition of quarantine 180 degrees.
WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT?
Historically, when there have been actual outbreaks of true infectious diseases, you quarantined the diseased group. Not the entire population. YOU ONLY ISOLATED THE INFECTED GROUP.
That’s what quarantine is. Common sense dictates that we protect the healthy majority from the sick minority. Not the other way around.
See the difference? What we’re living through today –isolating the entire population of the world--- has never been done before in the history of the world.
The fact that no scientists or doctors have come forward to point out the lunacy of such an attack on the world’s healthy population – something like that can only be accomplished one way - when science is left far behind, and politics takes over .
Plus, the population must be sufficiently docile and uninformed, so as not to recognize the physical impossibility of what is being proposed.
That’s been the recipe for today’s global catastrophe.
The indoctrination of the facemask mythology has been so complete, so mesmerizing that in the absence of any verifiable science – in virtually every city in the US today you can see people walking down the street by themselves, driving in their cars by themselves, even sitting in their homes by themselves obediently wearing facemasks.
Just returned from a week in Vegas, where the facemask ban was lifted a month ago. No facemask requirements anywhere, right?. And yet about 30% of the people were still walking around with their masks— indoors and outdoors - voluntarily.
The same thing is happening in most of the other states that have opened back up.
Exactly what do these individuals believe?
Apparently, they have somehow been persuaded that pathogenic viruses have the ability to float around in the open air, looking for any available human mouth to enter and begin a potentially fatal disease process.
Such an article of faith is not based on any verifiable science but instead on the unending flow of misinformation - all day every day - from every possible medium, the subject line of every online government document and journal article, and from signs on the door of every single business…
THE NEW RELIGION
What ‘s the definition of religion. -- Belief in that for which there is no evidence –America was the first country in history to be founded on the idea of freedom of religion, so of course people are welcome to believe in whatever they want.
But that’s not what we have here with the Germ Theory. This particular new religion of germaphobes wearing facemasks is being forced on people who do not belong to that particular cult – forced onto 100% of the population. Now we’re seeing Signs in businesses everywhere – No Mask - No Service.
in the absence of any legitimate science – a direct violation of the First Amendment. Enforced by police and bureaucrats whose original oath was what? – to defend the constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.
Store clerks are relying on some imaginary mantra from W.H.O. guidelines – or CDC guidelines – as their basis for keeping you out of their stores. But did you ever notice? – they never specify.
Also remember this guidelines are not laws. CDC is not a lawmaking body —nor even a government office, for that matter . CDC is a for profit private corporation.
So for the small demographic of you still lucid enough to require proof instead of just blindly doing whatever you’re told, let’s take a look at what the real authorities and scientists have to say about facemasks.
THE REAL SCIENCE BEHIND FACEMASKS
Here are just a few of the literally hundreds of studies and opinions from both government and science sources with regard to the use of facemasks. You can find all these citations in the Shownotes to this podcast #708.
Let’s start with the World Health Organization.
From their website we read
“the wide use of masks by healthy people … is not supported by current evidence and carries uncertainties and critical risks…. There is no current evidence to make a recommendation for or against their use.”
“… there is currently no evidence that wearing a mask by healthy persons in the community setting, can prevent them from infection with respiratory viruses, -------------- including COVID-19.”
“Keep a distance of at least 1 meter from other people.” [Not 6 feet!]
several quotes From the peer reviewed British Medical Journal: 9 Apr 20
Covid-19: important potential side effects of wearing face mask
“Face masks make breathing more difficult. For people with COPD, face masks are in fact intolerable to wear as they worsen their breathlessness. Moreover, a fraction of carbon dioxide previously exhaled is inhaled at each respiratory cycle. This may worsen the burden of covid-19 if infected people wearing masks spread more contaminated air.”
“…mask fabric … can determine an increase in viral load and therefore they can cause a defeat of the innate immunity and an increase in infections.” It is not time to act without evidence.”
the BMJ 2020 Face masks for the public during the covid-19 crisis
“no randomised trials of masks so far for COVID 19
“we did not find any published data that directly support the use of masks … by the public.”
“10 randomised controlled trials .. that tested the efficacy of face masks… meta-analysis found no significant reduction in influenza transmission.”
“…31 eligible studies … The evidence is not sufficiently strong to support the use of facemasks as a protective measure against covid-19.”
How about CDC? What does CDC really say about masks:
“Currently we are not finding any data that can quantify risk reduction from the use of masks”,
- Reuters: April 23, 2020 / Partly false claim: Wear a face mask; COVID-19 risk reduced
Russell Blaylock PhD:
“By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, and travel into the brain.”
“When a person has TB we have them wear a mask, not the entire community of non-infected. The recommendations by the CDC and the WHO are not based on any studies of this virus and have never been used to contain any other virus pandemic or epidemic in history.
“Masks can spread all virus, but coronavirus specifically. Exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and may concentrate in the nasal passages. “
Perlman S et al. Spread of a neurotropic murine coronavirus into the CNS via the trigeminal and olfactory nerves. Virology 1989;170:556-560. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2543129/
From the peer review journal Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses 6(4), 257–267.
bin-Reza et al. (2012) “The use of masks and respirators to prevent transmission of
influenza: a systematic review of the scientific evidence”,
“There were 17 eligible studies. … None of the studies established a conclusive
relationship between mask use and protection against inﬂuenza .”
Why Face Masks Don’t Work: - John Hardie, PhD
“The primary reason for mandating the wearing of face masks is to protect dental personnel from airborne pathogens. This review has established that face masks are incapable of providing such a level of protection. CDC … guilty of perpetuating a myth
a disservice to the … patients.”
This is just the smallest sampling of the enormous amount of research on facemasks. Generally they are all saying the same thing NO evidence of protection from infectious disease. But Significant Evidence of respiratory interference promoting illness.
So then why are local governments, police and businesses in the locked down states so fanatical about wearing facemasks?
IT’S ABOUT POWER
Unjustified by any legitimate science, it’s clear that there is no valid health reason for wearing masks in public. I’ll say that again----
Remember the science we showed in our video The Germ Theory of Disease about the size of viruses compared with the size of the openings in facemasks and we talked about paddling your kayak under the Golden Gate? It’s Physically impossible for masks to defend against the infinitesimal virus---------
So why all the hysteria forcing masks on people? Ever wonder that? It’s not just the $400 million facemask industry. NO The idea of facemasks has now devolved into something much more sinister. And it’s only about one thing -- power.
The entire global “pandemic” may be seen simply as a demonstration of bureaucratic power. Like nothing else in the history of mankind.
Now that we have clearly shown in our last 3 YT videos --- see homepage at thedoctorwithin that
- there is no new disease in the world
- There is no novel virus spreading through the world
- COVID 19 exists only in laboratories
- All 5 tests for COVID are completely unreliabl
- Therefore the reported daily numbers used to justify ongoing confinement---are fraudulent. They are incentivized.
why is this fake pandemic being artificially prolonged in many states? Why do all these states remain locked down, devastating people’s everyday lives?
There’s only one answer for that : Power. In the absence of science, this fake pandemic is being prolonged by a concerted agenda of bureaucrats. The lifeblood, their professional DNA – the very raison d’etre – of any bureaucrat is to do what ? - to advance their own power. At all costs.
And never before has so much power been placed within their grasp in such a short time. It’s intoxicating, and they can’t let it go. That’s why they keep extending and extending the return to normal in so many states… Nothing to do with protect5ing peole—Only about advancing their own power…
It turns out that it’s the facemask in particular that has come to empower everyone from the lowliest bag clerk in the grocery store, who’s now been elevated to the rank of junior G-man – all the way up to the governor – and everyone in between. Wow- minimum wage and I get to join Youth For Hitler —what a bonus!
And why has the facemask suddenly become this enormous issue?? It’s a symbol of the new religion. Do you think the clerk who screams at you for walking into the store with no facemask do you think he cares if you live or die?
Do you think the bureaucrats in your state or city who make up the illegal facemask rules care if you live or die? Of course not. Do you think they have any idea of the lack of science behind facemasks? Or the science that proves they promote illness? Of course not. And bureaucrats are not interested in learning. That would do nothing to increase their power.
It’s not about your health or well being at all. It’s all symbolic . It’s that facemasks have become a symbol of their new religion – their germ theory cult. Facemasks are now a religious totem – like rosary beads, or yamakas, or SS badges, or eagle feathers. By not wearing one, you are signifying to them that you are not a member of their cult. And that enrages them. Enough to harm you, any way they can. Just like the beginning of most wars in history.
Then higher up the food chain, facemask compliance is a symbol that the bureaucrats can pass any laws – any violations of the Constitution whatsoever- and most people will obey. Without a whimper.
George, and Alexander, and Thomas – they’d be embarrassed indeed to see us roll over like this with no blowback no outcry.
CHILDREN – THE FORGOTTEN VICTIMS
The COVID phenomenon has brought enormous trauma and abuse to one group in particular that is never mentioned in pop press – children. Just think how their lives have been materially damaged in so many ways during the past 4 months. Here are Just a few examples :
Also Many of the kids who attend summer camps have been especially devastated by the arbitrary closure of what may be one of the main events of their lives – something they look forward to all year long. One little girl I know was scheduled for her 4th summer at camp this year. For several weeks the state kept playing games with the owners of that camp, telling them they could still open if only this, if only that and kept adding outrageous new requirements every week. Here’s a partial list of those rules:
Any camper from out of statehad to do a 2 week quarantine
Social distancing at all times at camp- indoors and out
No singing or yelling the entire season
Kids have to wear facemasks at all meals
Kids can only have contact with their own cabin mates
No assemblies of the whole camp - no campfires, theatre activities, singalongs, etc
Only one cabin at a time may go swimming in the 3-mile lake
This is only a partial list of the absurd rules made up by the bureaucrats in Maine. Finally, the owners realized that this mutated version of camp was not camp at all, and announced closure for the entire season. The kids were devastated. A trauma they’ll carry with them all their lives.
Then I discovered that This identical scenario has played out in the majority of summer camps all across the country. Most just closed, without a squawk..
But wait---- That’s not nearly the worst of it for kids. In the next Podcast - # 709 – we’re going to go into detail about the permanent changes to kids’ everyday lives coming soon.
Don’t know if you’ve picked up on it yet or not – but here’s what’s going on----The bureaucrats are now going to pretend like for the first time in history that we are permanently threatened by this COVID disease and that it will never go away. And so we have to make dramatic permanent changes to the social order and the way we live our lives..
The schools are going to be the worst offenders at making invasive life changes for kids. Like most other school districts-----LA County is already gearing up for the Fall -- to maintain social distancing and wearing masks all day every day from now on. IN the absence of any disease threat -- this is the new normal.
That idea hasn’t clicked in to the general awareness yet.
This little social experiment we’ve got going – dreamed up by these Latter Day Nazis – is literally stealing time from the lives of our children. And it’s just beginning
This is just a sample of what we’re going to discuss in our next podcast.. Not only is this contrived epidemic not over yet – even in the open states -- bureaucrats are doing everything in their power to prolong the illusion of a permanent bio-threat. With permanent changes to our everyday lives.
But they’ll only get away with it if you let them.
SO WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Well For starters you can follow up on the science references above. Don’t take our word for it – check them out yourself. They’re listed in the shownotes to this podcast.
Also, you can save a lot of time informing yourself by going to the last few podcasts and videos on the homepage of thedoctorwithin
Then After you learn the true science, you can stand up and speak truth to power, any chance you’re confronted with mindless propaganda. Like what Elon Musk did with the Newsome biped.
The governor wants to keep all business closed in California as long as possible, in order to derive as much power as possible. With Tesla closed for 4 months and no end in sight, Elon made it known that there was no science behind the indefinite business closures in California, and that he was entertaining overtures from Nevada, Texas etc. to move his enterprise out of state. Seeing the dollars flying out of California, Newsome actually came to Elon and allowed him to start producing cars again.
That’s the only way to stop the insanity. . That’s what real vertebrates do – they stand up and tell truth to power.
Another thing you can do is inform yourself about the Facemask Exemption Form, available free at thedoctorwithin. Go to the homepage and click on podcasts It’s a two sided form you can laminate. One side informs the reader that facemasks are a violation .. …. of the Americans With Disabilities Act, and outlines the penalties for anyone violating it. Like grocery store owners, restaurant owners, etc.
The other side is an actual disability slip signed by your doctor that states how blocking exhaled CO2 will aggravate or cause allergies , asthma, etc. With all the science references at the bottom. This will be useful in the Fall for kids returning to school. Learn it. Use it. Bring your iphone and record interactions.
Still another thing we can all do - what we should have done last March the 16th is this. The next time some slovenly, ill-dressed bureaucrat comes on TV and youtube and announces another general House Arrest in your county for an undefined period of time, saying there’s some imaginary unproven “novel” microbe supposedly circulating – here’s what we can do. Here’s what we could have done last time. Nothing. Ignore it. Don’t stay home, don’t close your business, don’t close stores, don’t close schools. Just go about living your life same as before. Like they did in Sweden and Japan. There’s not enough Gestapo to enforce something like that if everyone simply ignores it.
And you know what would happen if everyone ignored it? Nothing. The COVID phenomenon only happened because we let it happen. We believed the bureaucrats and vaccine peddlers – we believed their lies without investigating them. Look what happened.
Think of all the trillions we could have saved, how much better our lives would be today if we’d used the last 4 months
to improve our lives and support our families, instead of burying our heads in the sand, listening to the propaganda of the self-serving bureaucrats. What a colossal waste of time and money.
SO Thank you for your kind attention. Please listen to our next podcast where we’re going to start with the horrifying program that’s about to become part of our lives—
