well, at least they are not even trying to hide it anymore and pretend that this is science.
pete has finally just come out and said what many of have long known:
federal mandates are not about science.
honestly, the most surprising aspect of all this is that tapper actually asked pete a real question.
imagine what we might have learned (and when) if journalists had actually acted like journalists instead of fawning propogandists and fear narrative amplifiers all along…
and pete, being a lightweight and neophyte, actually put some truth into his answer.
rookie move pete. you keep doing stuff like that and the public is going to catch on…
the CDC mask guidance has been based on some of the worst, flimsiest, and most irrelevant science in this whole debacle. much of it has been either medical malpractice or outright fraud. (see above links, esp “flimsiest”)
and even they have realized it’s time to pack up the tents and end this carnival.
guys like pete seem to be having trouble getting the message:
this is over. save what tatters of your credibility as still remain and get out of the way.
you’re not helping.
you never were.
I'll say it over and over again... It has never been about science, because all scientific references tell us that masks do not work. But it cannot be about "respect" either. If I really believed that I can give you COVID, then it may be a sign of respect to wear a mask, in an attempt (however futile) to avoid it. But the fact is that no one - unless they are sick - has any significant risk of transmitting this virus to others by just walking around without a mask. So, wearing a mask is not about "respect"; it is just about having been duped into believing something ridiculous.
This basically sums up my trip over Memorial Day: the bluer the area, MA and CT specifically on my way up to Maine, the more compulsive the masking. You could spot the long distance travelers at the CT rest areas by their dumbfounded looks on their bare faces! Crossing into NH, it even seemed like normalcy where store employees weren't masked anymore either. I just avoided the few beachfront shops that still had "please wear a mask" signs. Kind of sucks being back on Long Island today, near 100% compliance despite all the masking signs coming down over the weekend.
I'm more interested in CNN - Tapper and his producers - asking real (ish) questions. Tapper wasn't going rogue in asking these questions. As I'm not a mind reader, I'm left wondering if this move is as:
1. CNN can see their viewership plummet - for their target demo even. Is this part of a strategic move to attempt to claw back credibility?
2. Trump is now 6 months in the rear mirror. The attention span of Americans is short. Is CNNs assessment that it's now ok to question Team Blue, however politely?
It’s behavioural science. If everyone uses mask, everyone remembers all the time about the pandemia.
The mask mandate is still in effect in Pennsylvania for the "unvaccinated". About a week ago, they told us that the mandate would be lifted on June 28 or when 70% of the adult population was "fully vaccinated"...whichever came first. The leftist loonies went crazy. What if 70% haven't have gotten the injections by that date? Oh, no. Over the weekend, they dropped "whichever comes first". I'm not sure if that's meaningful.
But, now I'm in a quandary when I go into a building. Do I defiantly go maskless because masks are useless? Or do I defiantly wear the mask as a protest against the injection coercion?
I don't want my lack of mask to be interpreted as an endorsement fo the poison injections and socially coerce others who are wearing masks.
So, for the time being, I guess I'll wear the mask.
Is Pete still riding his bike to work? Is he wearing a mask while doing so? How much does this joker get paid to be a moron?
Question: if one has an IQ above 50 do they still need to wear a mask?
My wearing a mask in your presence, even though I don't want to and even though there is no logical, scientific reason, is my way of saying, "I respect your right to be a frightened, irrational germaphobe."
Ah the same Pete who could barely manage to fill in the potholes while he ran the booming metropolis of South Bend, which as everyone knows is the best form of training to become the secretary of transportation! Wake me up when this bad dream ends! Pete B is a virtue signaller without par, and gives
Me a bit of a Justin Trudeau vibe. Speaking of whom just sprained his ankle playing frisbee! Yup these are our leaders. We should be very afraid
I'm just a kitten when it comes to Substack, so I can't figure out how to email you directly. Please forgive me for a comment that's not related to this post:
I saw this on the front page of Reddit. https://www.reddit.com/r/news/comments/npna39/no_going_back_to_normal_43000_us_kids_lost_a/
I was wondering if you could explain it/put it in the proper context? Because all I see in the comments is hysteria.
The issue is: Do you want the people who don't wear a mask to get a tatoo or wear their vaccine card around their neck to show they have been vaccinated? Otherwise many folks will simply claim they have been vaccinated when they haven't. I understand those cloth masks are useless but few people understand that. The solution to the problem would be to get the CDC to admit all that mask wearing was cosplay, but that isn't going to happen, so the eventual solution is for them to say you don't have to wear a mask. However, in Florida, Gov. DeSantis already did that, but left it up to individual businesses whether to allow unmasked customers. In my experience only about 10% allow the unmasked, and for those, almost all the customers still wear them, still pulled down below their nose and often below their mouths.
mask science flimsiness is far behind the mirage that wuhan lockdown worked and is model for places that do not [yet, seems ontario is pursuing] have the pla to weld doors shut.....
