In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A study published in the New England Medical Journal outlines how it's already known that masks provide little to zero benefit when it comes to protection a public setting.

  • Reflect On:

    Should we have the freedom to wear masks? Why are so many things we are doing right now contrary to data and evidence? Are these measures helping us thrive, or are they totalitarian type measures?

What Happened: A paper published a couple of months ago in the New England Journal of Medicine by, Michael Klompas, M.D., M.P.H., Charles A. Morris, M.D., M.P.H., Julia Sinclair, M.B.A., Madelyn Pearson, D.N.P., R.N., and Erica S. Shenoy, M.D., Ph.D states:

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

The calculus may be different, however, in health care settings. First and foremost, a mask is a core component of the personal protective equipment (PPE) clinicians need when caring for symptomatic patients with respiratory viral infections, in conjunction with gown, gloves, and eye protection. Masking in this context is already part of routine operations for most hospitals. What is less clear is whether a mask offers any further protection in health care settings in which the wearer has no direct interactions with symptomatic patients.

That being said, the study acknowledged that the mask “may” provide some protection, and so do other published studies as well, but we can’t say this for sure, at least according to those studies. It might simply be a harmless precautionary measure in the minds of many as well. But to mandate them seems to be, in the minds of many, not the correct thing to do, especially when there is science on both ends of the coin with some of them suggesting it can be dangerous. More on that below.

There are also a number of studies suddenly emerging claiming that wearing a mask can supposedly help stop the transmission of Covid-19. That’s important to note. For example, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that wearing a wet washcloth greatly reduces exposure to speech droplets in the air[2]. Another study in ACS Nano observed that well-fitted face masks made of common materials, such as cotton, can filter out between 80 and 99% of droplets, depending on droplet size[3]. Finally, Jeremy Howard, a research scientist at the University of San Francisco, and other scientists have compiled a list of research publications supporting the use of face coverings for reducing disease transmission.

It’s not hard to see why people are so confused.

This particular study goes on to examine whether a mask alone is even an effective health-care measure, and discusses its capability alone devoid of other, what seem to be more important practices, like washing your hands. Instead of a mandate, should the citizenry simply be encouraged to wear masks, with the government explaining the science and still giving people a choice?  Why are they saying it’s to protect other people when there is no evidence that it actually does that?

What’s interesting about this particular study is that it’s one of multiple that mention how masks are more of a symbolic representation. As mentioned above, the paper states that “in many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.” Again, the study is an examination of the validity of masks in a health care setting (which is also questionable) with regards to the new coronavirus, and clearly states that it’s already known that they offer almost zero protection in a public setting.

It is also clear that masks serve symbolic roles. Masks are not only tools, they are also talismans that may help increase health care workers’ perceived sense of safety, well-being, and trust in their hospitals. Although such reactions may not be strictly logical, we are all subject to fear and anxiety, especially during times of crisis. One might argue that fear and anxiety are better countered with data and education than with a marginally beneficial mask, particularly in light of the worldwide mask shortage, but it is difficult to get clinicians to hear this message in the heat of the current crisis. Expanded masking protocols’ greatest contribution may be to reduce the transmission of anxiety, over and above whatever role they may play in reducing transmission of Covid-19.

Below is a quote from a very interesting paper published in 2016, titled “The Surgical Mask Is A Bad Fit For Risk Reduction.”

As represented by our cinema and other media, Western society expects too much of masks. In the public’s mind, the still-legitimate use of masks for source control has gone off-label; masks are thought to prevent infection. From here, another problem arises: because surgical masks are thought to protect against infection in the community setting, people wearing masks for legitimate purposes (those who have a cough in a hospital, say) form part of the larger misperception and act to reinforce it. Even this proper use of surgical masks is incorporated into a larger improper use in the era of pandemic fear, especially in Asia, where such fear is high. The widespread misconception about the use of surgical masks — that wearing a mask protects against the transmission of virus — is a problem of the kind theorized by German sociologist Ulrich Beck.

The birth of the mask came from the realization that surgical wounds need protection from the droplets released in the breath of surgeons. The technology was applied outside the operating room in an effort to control the spread of infectious epidemics. In the 1919 influenza pandemic, masks were available and were dispensed to populations, but they had no impact on the epidemic curve. At the time, it was unknown that the influenza organism is nanoscopic and can theoretically penetrate the surgical mask barrier. As recently as 2010, the US National Academy of Sciences declared that, in the community setting, “face masks are not designed or certified to protect the wearer from exposure to respiratory hazards.” A number of studies have shown the inefficacy of the surgical mask in household settings to prevent transmission of the influenza virus…

A study published in 2015 found that cloth masks can increase healthcare workers risk of infection. It also called into question the efficacy of medical masks. You can read more about that and access it here.

The physiological effects of breathing elevated inhaled CO2 may include changes in visual performance, modified exercise endurance, headaches and dyspnea. The psychological effects include decreased reasoning and alertness, increased irritability, severe dyspnea, headache, dizziness, perspiration, and short-term memory loss. (source)

There are studies out there that also suggest that wearing masks can indeed help prevent Covid-19, especially in an acute care setting, it’s just that we are hearing so much of it that we forget to examine the science on the other side of the coin.

The list goes on, these are just a few examples.

Manufactured Panic?

The next important question to ask ourselves is, are health authorities making this pandemic out to be more serious than it actually is? Many scientists and epidemiologists from around the world have expressed this belief, and many of them, as a result, have been censored by social media platforms. Why is there an authoritarian “fact-checker” going around censoring information, evidence, and opinions being presented by some of the worlds leading scientists in this area simply because it opposes the narrative given to us by organizations like The World Health Organization? (WHO)

Are masks being used to prolong fear and hysteria?

John P. A. Ioannidis, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at Stanford University has said that the infection fatality rate is close to 0 percent for people under the age of 45 years old. Why are we taking such measures for a respiratory infection when tens of millions of people get infected and die from respiratory viruses every single year?

Why is there so much controversy surrounding the deaths? For example, in Toronto Canada, “Individuals who have died with COVID-19, but not as a result of COVID-19 are included in the case counts for COVID-19 deaths in Toronto.” (source)

Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, recently stated that, even if it’s clear one died of an alternative cause, their death will still be marked as a COVID death.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment announced a change to how it tallies coronavirus deaths amid complaints that it inflated numbers. This has been a common theme throughout the US as well as the World.

Vittorio Sgarbi, Italian politician Mayor of Sutri gave an emotional speech at a hearing on the 24th of April where he emphasized that the number of deaths in Italy due to COVID-19 are completely false and that the people are being lied to.

This isn’t even the tip of the ice-berg when it comes to manufactured deaths.

What’s really going on here? Is this actually about the pandemic, or was Edward Snowden right? That governments are using the new coronavirus to impose more authoritarian measures on the population, measures that will stick around long after the virus is gone? You can read more about his comments here.

Was Dr. Ron Paul correct when he said that this virus is less dangerous than it’s being made out to be? And that people will profit both politically and financially from this in the form of more of our basic rights being taken away? Is this simply being used like the justification for mass surveillance was used? To protect the population, or is it for, as NSA whistle-blower William Binney says, “total population control?” You can read more about his comments here.

The Takeaway

It’s quite clear that a large portion of the population doesn’t agree with various medical mandates, and wearing masks is one of those mandates. The reason is justified, and that’s simply because there is no evidence that they can protect the general public, and depending on the material, in some cases it can be harmful. I find it hard to believe that someone would have an issue with someone else not wanting to breathe in their own carbon monoxide, but I also understand that many peoples perception with regards to this pandemic has been severely manipulated.

On the flip side, due to so many instances where things don’t make sense, this pandemic is contributing to another large amount of people questioning what we are being told and being forced to do by our government, this is causing a deep awakening of the masses. Perhaps this is the larger reason it’s playing out from a collective consciousness perspective.

At the end of the day, more measures are continually pushed upon the population without their consent. We don’t have to continue to obey, continue to elect, and help maintain a system that is clearly not serving us to thrive.

Two Boys Drop Dead While Wearing Face Masks During Gym Class

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Two Chinese boys dropped dead in gym class while exercising and wearing a mask. It's unclear whether or not the masks had anything to do with their deaths.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are children in gym class, and some gyms across the globe mandating masks when there is science indicating that wearing a mask while exercising is not safe and potentially dangerous?

What Happened: Multiple media outlets are reporting that two Chinese boys dropped dead within one week of each other wearing face masks during gym class. Both of the students were 14 years old and were running laps for a physical examination test when they suddenly collapsed and lost consciousness during their run.

According to the New York Post:

One of the teens was only minutes into his gym class when he fell backward April 24 at Dancheng Caiyuan Middle School in Henan province, according to the outlet.

“He was wearing a mask while lapping the running track, then he suddenly fell backwards and hit his head on the ground,” his father, who was only identified as Li, told the outlet.

His dad said teachers and students tried to help him, to no avail.

The death certificate listed the cause as sudden cardiac arrest, but no autopsy was performed, the outlet said.

The boy’s father said he believes that the mask his son was required to wear to school played a role in his death.

It’s not clear if the cause of death was a result of wearing a mask, or if the masks even contributed to the death of the boys. That being said, it’s important to ask whether or not masks are dangerous during exercise.

But Cao Lanxiu, professor at Shaanxi University of Chinese Medicine, said it’s unlikely that the mask caused the boy to suffocate.

“I don’t think mask-wearing has caused this sudden death,” Cao said, though she added that it was impossible to say without an autopsy.

Six days after his death, the second student collapsed at Changsha’s Xiangjun Future Experimental School in Hunan province, the outlet reported.

He had been wearing an N95 respirator and running a 1,000-meter exam when the fatal incident occurred, the report said. It’s unclear whether an autopsy had been ordered.

Though it’s not known whether the masks played a role in either death, several schools in Tianjin and Shanghai have canceled physical education exams, according to the report.

Why This Is Important: A study published in June 2020 raises some health concerns about people wearing masks while exercising. It also calls into question the ability of masks to stop Covid-19. It’s not the only study to do so, but they go against multiple studies that have been recently published showing that masks can indeed be effective in stoping Covid-19, but it’s quite a controversial subject and we’re only hearing one side from the mainstream media, which is why I believe it’s important to present the other.

The study was published in the Journal Medical Hypothesis titled “Exercise with facemask; Are we handling a devil’s sword? – A physiological hypothesis” and claims the following:

Exercising with facemasks may reduce available Oxygen and increase air trapping preventing substantial carbon dioxide exchange. The hypercapnic hypoxia may potentially increase acidic environment, cardiac overload, anaerobic metabolism and renal overload, which may substantially aggravate the underlying pathology of established chronic diseases. Further contrary to the earlier thought, no evidence exists to claim the facemasks during exercise offer additional protection from the droplet transfer of the virus. Hence, we recommend social distancing is better than facemasks during exercise and optimal utilization rather than exploitation of facemasks during exercise.

According to the authors, exercising with facemasks induced as “a hypercapnic hypoxia environment [inadequate Oxygen (O2) and Carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange] . This acidic environment, both at the alveolar and blood vessels level, induces numerous physiological alterations when exercising with facemasks: 1) Metabolic shift; 2) cardiorespiratory stress; 3) excretory system altercations; 4) Immune mechanism; 5) Brain and nervous system.’

Further, poor saturation of haemoglobin would be anticipated due to increased partial pressure of CO2 at higher exercise intensity Fig. 2 demonstrates the extreme right shift of the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve, which would be higher than that expected during exercise. This acidic environment would unload O2 faster at the muscle level, but due to higher heart rate and reduced affinity at the alveolar junction, the partial pressure of O2 would substantially fall, creating a hypoxic environment for all vital organs.

The authors also point out that “wearing of facemasks to prevent the community spread of the novel Covid-19 is itself debatable, considering the limited evidence on the subject matter. WHO recommends masks only for Covid-19 patients but the usage of masks is morally “exploited” among community individuals.”

Here’s another interesting claim by the researchers:

Though the respirator masks are perceived to be the barriers for preventing aerosol depositions to the respiratory tract, the bitter reality is that masks increase the risk of more in-depth respiratory tract infections. As quoted by Perencevich et al. 2020, “The average healthy person shouldn’t be wearing masks as it creates a false sense of security and people tend to touch their face more often when compared to not wearing masks. The surgical masks are debated to trap the droplets containing the vrus inside, increasing rather than reducing the risk of infection.

The study concludes:

Exercising with facemasks might increase pathophysiological risks of underlying chronic disease, especially cardiovascular and metabolic risks. Social exercisers are recommended to do low to moderate-intensity exercise, rather than vigorous exercise when they are wearing facemasks. We also recommend people with chronic diseases to exercise alone at home, under supervision when required, without the use of facemasks. Given the identified and hypothesized risks, social distancing and self-isolation appear to be better than wearing facemasks while exercising during this global crisis.

We are rapidly moving toward a time where the citizenry of the world no longer questions the information provided to them by their government. In many cases, simply questioning federal government and global health authorities like the World Health Organization (WHO) can result in censorship, and in our case, demonetization.

We’ve seen this a lot with Covid-19. The number of doctors and scientists around the world who have been raising multiple questions, cause for concern, and presenting research, information and evidence that completely contradicts the claims and recommendations that we are receiving from government health authorities is truly astounding. The amount they’ve been ignored by the mainstream, censored on the internet and ridiculed is also quite eye-opening and revealing.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there is there a digital authoritarian Orwellian ‘fact-checker’ going around  patrolling the internet and telling people what is and what isn’t, what to believe and what not to believe. On top of this we are witnessing mandates instead of recommendations, when a wealth of information exists that clearly calls into question these mandates.

Should people not have the right to choose what they do with their body? Should people not have a right to examine all information and determine for themselves what is and what isn’t? Why is there always a campaign to make people feel guilty, or make them feel like they are putting others in danger by not complying to mandates that are already highly questionable, and in some cases possibly even dangerous? What’s going on here?

Another example of conflicting information: A paper published a couple of months ago in the New England Journal of Medicine by, Michael Klompas, M.D., M.P.H., Charles A. Morris, M.D., M.P.H., Julia Sinclair, M.B.A., Madelyn Pearson, D.N.P., R.N., and Erica S. Shenoy, M.D., Ph.D states:

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

A study published in 2015 found that cloth masks can increase healthcare workers risk of infection. It also called into question the efficacy of medical masks. You can read more about that and access it here.

The physiological effects of breathing elevated inhaled CO2 may include changes in visual performance, modified exercise endurance, headaches and dyspnea. The psychological effects include decreased reasoning and alertness, increased irritability, severe dyspnea, headache, dizziness, perspiration, and short-term memory loss. (source)

We are a society moving towards complete obedience, as well as the shame and ridicule of those who don’t comply. Every day we are being ‘turned against’ each other and a lot of it is due to the fact that there is a plethora of  credible information out there that completely contradicts our health authorities.

“We are the last free people, we are the people that have the last chance to act.” – Julian Assange

The Takeaway

It can be frustrating living in a time where mandates are imposed on us despite a wealth of information showing that it doesn’t make much sense. What is done for the ‘greater good’ according to governments may not actually be for the greater good, and this has been a theme throughout history, one that may even be hard for people to accept due to the fear it may bring into ones own consciousenss.

Today, there is more of a division amongst people with regards to ‘what is’ and ‘what isn’t’ and that’s largely due to the fact that our consciousness and perception of events are extremely manipulated. This is why there is always so much information contradicting information, recommendations and explanations that come from our government.

One thing is for certain, regardless of how you feel, keeping calm and peaceful in a time of ‘chaos’ is key.

There’s no doubt about it, many people are going through and experiencing a shift in consciousness. COVID-19 has served as a catalyst for many to start questioning what we are being told, why we think the way we do and why we keep listening and following orders that don’t really make much sense. It’s similar to what we’ve experienced before with events like, 9/11 for example, and many others.

Living in a time like we are today can really drive people mad. It can be frustrating seeing so many people blindly following recommendations without ever questioning them, and in turn demonize those who don’t. The human race has been subjected to measures throughout history under the guise of good, all while moving and creeping towards an authoritarian state. We should be listening to people like Edward Snowden on these matters in my opinion. He has been expressing that just like 9/11, governments are using COVID-19 to “monitor us like never before.” He’s stated that “As authoritarianism spreads, as emergency laws proliferate, as we sacrifice our rights, we also sacrifice our capability to arrest the slide into a less liberal and free world. Do you truly believe that when the first wave, this second wave, and the 16th wave of coronavirus is a long forgotten memory, that these capabilities will not be kept? (source)

A Video of President Trump Supporting Bill & Melinda Gates’ Vaccine Alliance, Gavi

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Donald Trump/U.S. Government have donated more than a billion dollars to Bill & Melinda Gates' vaccine alliance, called Gavi.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do people still think this is fake news even though it came straight from President Donald Trump? Why do people think one person, like Trump can "save" humanity? Why do we keep giving our power away to other people and expect them to make change?

Politics is a funny thing, if there’s one common theme that can constantly be seen, it’s the fact that throughout the years, presidents and politicians are constantly flip flopping when it comes to their opinion on various topics that are controlled by political policy,  or should I say corporate policy instead? Why do they (presidents and politicians) flip flop so much? Is it because they’ve been entrapped or black mailed in some sort of way? Perhaps threatened in some sort of way to take a particular stance on a particular topic? Are decisions and opinions given simply to appeal to the masses and collect the popular vote? With such a large lack of transparency existing within big politics, why do we even continue to vote and uphold a system that doesn’t seem to be capable of helping our planet, people and all life on it thrive? Why are there so many solutions to our problems that have trouble seeing the light of day? These are important questions to ask ourselves, especially in today’s day and age.

What Happened: Today, Trump has completely reversed his position on some issues, like vaccines, for example. Is this a result of the influence that the “secret government” (Roosevelt) has over the presidency? Who really knows. During his 2016 campaign Trump was quite outspoken about vaccine safety concerns, but since then he has publicly stated how important they are, and he recently gave more than a billion dollars to a vaccine alliance called Gavi that was co-founded by Bill & Melinda Gates. He also inked a deal with Pfizer for 100,000,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine while simultaneously stating that “big pharma” doesn’t like him for lowering drugs prices.

I wrote about this and published an article about it a couple of weeks ago titled  “Trump Gives 1.16 Billion to Bill Gates’ Vaccine alLIANCE & Inks deal with Pfizer of a COVID Vaccine.” As a result, we received a lot of comments on Facebook stating that it’s “fake news” or to simply “trust the plan.” The number of comments on the article claiming that it was “fake news” was quite overwhelming, and most of them obviously Trump supporters.

I am writing this article to let these people know, again, that this isn’t ‘fake news.’ US President Donald Trump “donated more to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to prevent the spread of infectious diseases worldwide.” He did so in a statement of support for Gavi at the public Gavi pledge conference, which was hosted by the United Kingdom, on June 4th. So far, the United States has donated more than $12 billion for the development of COVID-19 vaccines and therapies, and “the U.S. commitment to immunization complements the work of innovators in the United States and other countries who are racing to find a vaccine and treatments for COVID­19.” (source)

Here’s a video clip of Trump talking about his decision, as the headline of this article promotes. Clearly, this isn’t fake news. 

Shortly after this, Trump announced that they will give nearly $2 billion to Pfizer, a big pharmaceutical company, for 100 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine that could make its way into the public domain sometime next year.

It really goes to show you how many people simply read headlines without actually reading the article and examining sources for themselves.

Sure, Trump may be playing both sides. He has promoted alternative treatments like Hydroxychloroquine, which was supported by countless doctors, scientists and evidence. He has called the coronavirus pandemic “artificially induced” and more, which many of us in the ‘alternative media’ world would agree with for a number of reasons. But again, he is also simultaneously supporting the vaccine.

Are politicians forced to do and say things they really don’t agree with? Why? What’s going on ?

Has science become politicized?

Why This Is Important: If we write an article about how Trump has been the only president to make any real progress on human and child sex trafficking, we get demonized for being “Trump supporters” which we are not. If we write an article that raises concerns, like the topic discussed in this article, we get demonized for not being a Trump haters” , which we are not.

This is what happens when you look at and write about politics from a neutral perspective without taking sides. The idea that one man or woman in the position of the presidency can make changes our world needs is upsetting to me, because we are constantly giving our power away every four years thinking someone else is going to “take care of the problem.” We look to these people as idols and saviours of humanity, when really we are simply prolonging problems that plague our world by putting power into the hands of people who don’t always have the best interests of humanity at heart, all the time.

The fact that so many people claimed that Trumps donation was “fake news” goes to show just how many people don’t read articles and examine sources. This makes it easy for “fact checkers” and provides more of a justification for governments to censor real information and label it as fake news. Simply reading a headline and then jumping to a conclusion is a huge problem people have today, especially when it comes to information that contradicts ones belief system.

Big politics is a big game, and those who play it have to go up against those who sit above government, a power so great that dozens of presidents and politicians have mentioned it, and most of them in recent history have given in to the will of those who sit above the presidency. Donald Trump, in my opinion, is a difficult person for this group of people, which is why he has been bombarded and demonized by the mainstream media and his opposition with false accusations, like the “Russian hack” for example. All these and more have been an attempt to get the president out of his current position.

As New York City mayor John F. Hylan once said“like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation.” This “little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties … [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country.

Again, this doesn’t mean that he is the “solution” or represents the type of change we need. Ultimately, a shift in consciousness is required and humanity needs to begin creating and making decisions from a place of peace and good will, and an elevated level of thinking.

The Takeaway: Everytime I examine big politics, I am amazed as to why humanity continues to play with it and participate in it, thus perpetuating it. Why are we made to feel like our vote actually counts and that one person (president) can make any significant change on the planet? Presidents prior to Trump have been used as celebrity figures. They are marketed and portrayed as idols and bearers of good will, and in many cases a distraction. We are made to believe that our ‘leaders’ are solving and tackling the issues that need to be tackled, but are they? Nothing significant ever seems to get accomplished.  If we can lock down the world and take action for the coronavirus, why can’t we lock down the world and take action for more important things?

Canada Inks Deal With Pfizer & Moderna To Prepare The Nation For “Mass Vaccinations”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Canada recently announced that they signed a deal with Pfizer & Moderna to secure millions of doses of a coronavirus vaccine when it's ready.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is vaccine hesitancy growing? Should the freedom of choice always remain? Are people who refuse made out to be the "bad" ones as a result of mainstream media/government/big pharma perception manipulation?

What Happened: The Canadian government has inked a new deal with pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and Moderna to secure tens of millions of doses of the new coronavirus vaccine in 2021, which is still currently in the developmental stages. Procurement Minister Anita Anand recently made the announcement after Pfizer tweeted news of the new deal, stating that “We are increasingly focused on the next stage of our recovery, including preparing Canada for mass vaccinations”

This comes shortly after the U.S. government gave more than a billion dollars to Bill Gates‘ vaccine alliance called Gavi, which was co-founded by Bill & Melinda Gates. President Trump also signed a deal with Pfizer for one hundred million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. You can read more about those stories here.

Why This Is Important: Many people are wondering if the coronavirus vaccine will be mandatory, or perhaps similar to recent mask mandates that multiple governments have put in place in certain areas. In Canada, masks are mandatory when inside many public buildings, and many people are starting to see that these types of mandates may actually become permanent, and also worry that other permanent changes are being put in place that will remain as “then new normal” under the guise of necessity.

 Survey results released on Tuesday from the non-profit Angus Reid Institute found half of Canadians say they have no reservations and are ready to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as it’s available. But 32 per cent — roughly a third of respondents — say they’d likely wait a while. Another 14 per cent don’t want to get a vaccine at all. This comes from CBC, a major mainstream media organization in Canada. I do have a hard time trusting these numbers, and personally feel that the number of those who do not desire the vaccine may be much greater than 50 percent, but I could be wrong. At the end of the day, mainstream media and poll organizations could easily team up and manipulate numbers, it’s so hard to trust anything that comes from mainstream media given their relationship with corporations and governments. We’ve already seen a great amount of manipulation when it comes to the new coronavirus, as with many other topics over the years.

Are powerful people creating a problem in order to propose a solution? In today’s day and age, this is an important question to ask.

According to Edward Snowden, “Governments around the world are are exploiting the pandemic to monitor us like never before.” He and many others have been pointing out how society is moving fast towards an authoritarian type of existence, and how it’s already here. The enforcement or advocacy of strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom has been here for quite a while, and it’s done in a very clever way, often hiding under the guise of good will, or making people feel that they may be harming others if they do not comply.

This pandemic has been a catalyst for many people to question actions taken by government and if they’re actually in societies best interest. Are governments simply following the will of their masters, without question, like we follow the will of our government? Global chaos seems to be a recipe for change, awareness, and for more people to see through potential lies and manipulation.

Can human beings do better? We have unlimited potential to create a human experience where everyone can thrive. We have solutions, finding them is not the problem, implementing them seems to be the case and solutions that can change our world for the better have long threatened powerful interests and their ability to control the human population.

Is COVID-19 doing what 9/11 did for human consciousness? 

A common theme throughout this pandemic is the ‘waking up’ of humanity. Given the discrepancy that’s existed around the world with regards to categorizing coronavirus deaths when they are not the result of COVID-19, the controversy surrounding masks, an infection fatality rate that is no different from a seasonal flu (read more about that here and here), treatment options that have worked yet have been constantly ridiculed, and the unreliability of the tests used to detect the new coronavirus, many people are asking themselves what’s really going on?

Vaccine hesitancy hasn’t only increased among the citizenry, Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project, recently emphasized that, “The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines.” She did so at a World Health Organization (WHO) conference on vaccine safety. You find find links to the conference and read more about it here, if interested. She cites multiple studies proving her point.

Doctors and scientists are starting to distrust pharmaceutical companies, and many don’t feel comfortable prescribing certain medications, another point emphasized by Larson at the conference, and the research she cites.

Multiple clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines have shown severe reactions within 10 days after taking the vaccine. Meanwhile, the US government and Yale University are collaborating in a clinical trial to determine the best messaging to persuade Americans to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves, why is there a digital authoritarian Orwellian “fact-checker” going around the internet censoring any information that contradicts the WHO on health issues? Why are so many scientists and doctors experiencing censorship, and why is mainstream media bringing no attention to what these doctors have been saying? What’s really going on here? How long has our perception of major global events been completely manipulated? Should we not have the right to examine information openly and freely, and determine for ourselves what is and what isn’t and choose, for ourselves, what decisions we desire to make?
