An Update on COVID-19 News:
Will There Be Future Mask and Vaccine Requirements?
As First Lady Jill Biden tests positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the corporate media begins hyping up the new variants, EG.5 (Eris) and BA.2.86 (Omicron), we are again presented with a challenge. The headlines once again read that deaths and hospitalizations from the virus are increasing significantly. Will we comply with a brand-new set of mask and vaccine mandates and lockdowns, or will enough people stand up and say: you had your time, but we are no longer interested in living in fear over a virus and will not comply with any further restrictions?
Despite the fearmongering by public officials and the media once again, it does appear that people are largely tapped out mentally when it comes to following the “recommendations” from federal and state authorities. In fact, Pope Anthony Fauci has been summoned from retirement to warn Americans about the dangers of another resurgence of the virus, and he suggests that The Science’s desire for all of us is to listen to the experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and go back to masking if they believe that it is the right course of action. However, our retired savior believes that Satan has tempted too many Americans with freedom, and as a result, there are doubts about widespread compliance. His authoritarian brain just cannot register the idea that some people will not shut down their critical thinking skills and blindly do what the experts desire. After all, it is our patriotic duty to just do what the CDC asks of us, and the agency only issues recommendations, not mandates, right? Well, that is what a misleading bureaucrat like Fauci would try to claim, but back on planet reality, we all know that indirectly the agency does issue de facto mandates, as most states will implement policies based on the “guidance” that it provides.

Speaking of the CDC, it was reported that despite the corporate media attempting to frighten the population with death tolls, it turns out that only 1.7% of all CDC-reported COVID-19 deaths nationwide (during the week ending August 19) were actually caused by the virus (2.1% in New York and 3.4% in Florida and Maryland, but these were high numbers compared to the national average). This means that 98.3% of the deaths associated with COVID-19 did not have the virus as the primary cause of death, and it is pretty clear that the CDC is back to its game of fraudulent reporting to push monetary agendas and mass compliance.
If that were not bad enough, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), of which Fauci was a part of (as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases), along with the Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety journal, published a study finding that wearing masks potentially increases exposure to toxic volatile organic compounds. The disposable masks that they assured us were safe exceed the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recommended limit of 0.5 parts per million of toxic chemicals in the air. So, after being ridiculed and censored for pushing conspiracy theories and misinformation and being shunned out of the scientific community, come to find out, they are now admitting that masks are actually harmful to one’s health. Who would have thought?
It is also ironic that those who trust the science and have traditionally considered the Cochrane Library to be one of the most authoritative and reliable sources of information now consider its studies on masking to be flawed and limited and not worthy of deliberation because the results do not align with their perspective, thus begging the question of whether the facts were the actual goal from the beginning. The once respected source, which has gathered data from randomized-controlled trials (considered the gold standard of trials), has concluded (with the coordinator of the studies, Oxford University epidemiologist Tom Jefferson, confirming these conclusions) that wearing masks “probably makes little or no difference to the outcome of laboratory‐confirmed influenza/SARS‐CoV‐2 compared to not wearing masks” (and the experts knew this throughout the entire pandemic, or should have, as studies had been done for years prior and concluded that masks did not stop the spread of respiratory illnesses, but yet, they continued to press the falsehoods and push agendas and social experiments on the populace). Even Fauci seems to be changing course and saying that masks might not prevent the spread of transmission during a pandemic but it helps on an individual basis (this is not what he was saying during the entire time mask mandates were implemented previously, when it was said that you wear the mask for others and not yourself; and the Danish mask study found no evidence of the wearer being protected). These experts will say whatever they need to justify forcing people to wear masks, even if they go back and forth and ignore the data and studies that do not confirm their biases.
If you need further proof that masking did not work, just consider that Sweden did not have the catastrophic results that American politicians claimed it would have for not locking down or implementing mask mandates (it was no worse than other nations in the region or as compared to the entire world, and it was spared some of the economic, educational, mental health, social, and excess mortality consequences). Additionally, as academic Thomas Ernest Woods Jr. has emphasized on multiple occasions, mask mandates did not make any difference in results from location to location based on charted data (if masks worked, there should be conclusive correlations between fewer deaths recorded and places that implemented mandates, but that was not the case).
Now with the resurgence of the new variants (I cannot believe that I am saying this in 2023), President Joe Biden is requesting money from Congress to fund new pharmaceutical products from his favorite corporations (as if they did not profit enough off of the taxpayers), and the new vaccines are being worked on to combat against the new variants and actually perform successfully this time (perhaps the president was implying that the previous COVID-19 vaccines did not work as promised). Additionally, he may recommend that everyone get the new vaccine, and if we learned anything from history, we can deduce what this will mean (get the jab, or lose your job, life activities and necessities, and the pursuit of happiness). Mask and vaccine mandates, at least in more liberal-leaning states, will likely be implemented in some capacity (perhaps through limited-choice “voluntarism”).
For a virus with such a low mortality rate, why would anyone need to mandate the product? Young people especially do not need to risk myocarditis and other conditions for limited protection, and when you hear news story after news story of healthy athletes suddenly dropping from heart attacks and celebrities dying like never before, you start to wonder if the timing and the fact that there is an increase in unknown excess deaths are coincidences or whether there is something more sinister occurring. Of course, the fact checkers are out in full force assuring the public that even though we have no idea what is causing these excess deaths and increased heart attacks in young people, it is certainly not the vaccines, and anyone who suggests otherwise is a spreader of misinformation. They can make those confident conclusions without any curiosity in investigating the claims, and when they rate something as completely false (or “pants on fire”), what happens when the claim proves to be true in the future?
Yet, people like Edward Dowd are conducting real research into the phenomena and trying to see if there is a link between the vaccines and excess deaths, and a recent Rasmussen poll shows that one in every four Americans believe that they know someone who died from the vaccine, with almost half of Americans believing that the vaccine is responsible for the unknown excess deaths. Why are our experts, politicians, and so-called journalists not interested in finding out whether there is any validity to these claims? It is like ignorance is the best way to keep the status quo going, and you would think that honest researchers, scientists, and investigators would be interested in doing actual science and journalism (and not being paid spokespeople for the public-health industrial complex and the corporate media).
It is no surprise that there is pushback for even conducting research on excess deaths and vaccine injuries, being that officials and bureaucrats need the narrative to remain unchanged for their political careers, scientists and doctors do not want to see that the product that they were a proponent of did not work as promised and is killing people, and the pharmaceutical industry needs the money to keep flowing in without any disruptions. However, at the very least, I think it should be considered reasonable by everyone to consider the possibility that the excess deaths could be associated with the vaccines. An investigation is certainly warranted, especially since they have no other better explanations.
As the government begins funding new vaccines, hospitals and universities restart mask mandates, and states begin to send masks and testing kits to schools (like in New York); we must ask ourselves if compliance is back on the table for we the people. Will we let them take our rights from us again? Will we allow them to prohibit us from going to churches, restaurants, bars, gyms, and other small businesses (threatening our right to free association, contracts, economic freedom, and free religious practices)? Will we allow them to take away our bodily autonomy and force us to get vaccinated? Will we allow for state-mandated facial attire to become the new normal again? Are we seeing a renewed effort to frighten the public right before election season so that new methods of voting can be implemented to result in the preferred candidate taking another unworthy victory? Are officials just testing the waters to see how much compliance they would get if they were to go down the same route as they did in 2020 and 2021? What will be the result, if anything, of the spike in cases of COVID-19? Only time will tell, but we need to be vigilant of what agendas lurk around the corner.
