THE MASKS OF ZORRO. OR IS THAT ZERO.
Part 3 in an on-going series on the greatest scam this side of the Crab Nebula:
“If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing about it? The recent practice of propaganda has proved that it is possible, at least up to a certain point and within certain limits.
-Edward L. Bernays (1891-1995), “the father of public relations,” nephew of Sigmund Freud, cited from his book “Propaganda” (1928)
(Picture above: Remember, as Leona Helmsley told us, “We don’t pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes.” Similarly, I suppose, for the pandemic, only the little people wear masks)
Regarding the frantic need for masks, the bought and paid for World Health Organization director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, told us In a March 3, 2020, media briefing (see WHO media briefing March 3, 2020 ) “Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.” So, 3.4% is the case fatality rate (CFR, or deaths from COVID-19 divided by the number of cases), while the 1% is infection fatality rate (IFR), or the number of deaths divided by all infected individuals. Here’s the problem: Tedos – either through ignorance or intentional lying – was conflating the CFR and IFR, an incredibly basic mistake. Quantitative scientist John Ioannidis, professor of medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research Center, calculated the IFR for COVID-19 in a review of 61 seroprevalence studies, which was a median of 0.23%, and 0.05% in people younger than 70 (see WHO Bulletin 2021;99:19-33F). Yes, that’s right – Covid is much less of a threat to the young that the seasonal flu – by about a thousand-fold between the young and those 70 and older (this statistic does not differentiate between the young and those 70 and older who have no co-morbidities, significantly). Heck, even Fauci in a New England Journal of Medicine editorial published March 26, 2020, wrote that “the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza.” Incidentally, if you still trust WHO, you might want to reconsider. See the documentary TrustWHO by Lilian Franck who does a deep dive into the scam the organization is. Mercola notes WHO’s fake investigation into COVID origins is corrupt, as China was allowed to hand pick the members of the WHO’s investigative team, which includes Peter Daszak, Ph.D., who has close professional ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) that was being investigated. Yes, the fox once again is guarding the henhouse. Of course, the recently divorced Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation was the biggest funder of WHO when Donald Trump stopped U.S. funding, making Gates’ priorities the backbone of WHO. Roman writer’s question from 2,000 years ago remains unanswered: “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes” – Who controls the controllers?
Given the strong and ongoing evidence that WHO is heavily influenced, if not outright controlled, by Bill Gates and industry,
And if Mike Adams of Natural News is right, as he reports from an article in the Journal of Clinical Perioidontology, “mask mouth” causes inflammation and gum disease, may increase coronavirus death risk by 900%, with study co-author Professor Lior Shapira of Hebrew University in Israel stating “The results of the study suggest that the inflammation in the oral cavity may open the door to the coronavirus becoming more violent.”
Alfie Oakes, CEO of the largest grocery store chain in Southwest Florida, in a video Insanity Exposed, discussed why enhancing the immune system – which is easily done through getting off highly processed foods – rather than using masks, led him to never requiring his thousands of employees to wear masks during the height of the of the panic, yet had much, much less incidence of Covid at his stores (granting that many, though not all, employees were more health conscious). Video here of Oakes discussing the issue. And Oakes is right. As of late April, 2021, in a Fox article Open States Texas and Florida Doing Much Better than Closed Blue States, it all became clear: Republican-led states including Texas and Florida are reporting fewer coronavirus cases than Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York — all of which are led by prominent Democrats who refuse to roll back COVID-19 regulations and statewide mask mandates, according to CDC data.
And what about those nutty people you see when walking in a nature preserve, no one else nearby, yet dutifully wearing their mask? Mercola again: Experts say brief outdoor encounters present a “very low risk” for transmission of COVID-19, as viral particles quickly disperse in outdoor air. “Using mathematical models, Italian researchers have calculated the amount of time it would take for you to contract the SARS-CoV-2 virus outdoors in Milan. If 10% of the population were infected, you would require 31.5 days of continuous outdoor exposure to inhale a dose of virus sufficient to transmit infection … Several investigations looking at SARS-CoV-2 RNA concentrations in air have come up empty. No detectable RNA was found in air samplings from various locations in Wuhan, China, Venice in northern Italy, or Lecce in southern Italy, during the pandemic.” Meanwhile, Germany’s first registry for side effects of mask wearing on children has identified 24 physical, psychological and behavioral health issues, including irritability (60%), headache (53%), difficulty concentrating (50%), reduced happiness (49%), reluctance to go to school/kindergarten (44%), malaise (42%), impaired learning (38%) and drowsiness or fatigue (37%). Linsey Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech and an expert on viral transmission mechanics stated in the NYT April 22, 2021 that “”Viral particles quickly disperse in outdoor air, and the risk of inhaling aerosolized virus from a jogger or passers-by is negligible,” Marr told Parker-Pope. “Even if a person coughs or sneezes outside as you walk by, the odds of you getting a large enough dose of virus to become infected remain low.” The same article quotes , Dr. Muge Cevic, a clinical lecturer of infectious disease and medical virology at the University of St. Andrews School of Medicine in Scotland, is quoted saying: “I think it’s a bit too much to ask people to put the mask on when they go out for a walk or jogging or cycling. We’re in a different stage of the pandemic. I think outdoor masks should not have been mandated at all. It’s not where the infection and transmission occurs,” and also quotes Dr. Nahid Bhadelia, an infectious diseases physician and medical director of the special pathogens unit at Boston Medical Center: “Let me go for my run, maskless … Given how conservative I have been on my opinions all year, this should tell you how low [the] risk is, in general, for outdoors transmission for contact over short periods …” Interestingly, this is same for this writer: I was one of the very, very first to go into stores with a N-95 mask, and once more research came out, one of the first to remove it.
Here’s how the mask gambit all fits together, per Mercola. (And if the Nazi term “ubermenschen” comes to mind while reading this, aided and abetted by the iatrarchy – medical dictators – you are spot on), for it is, as Robert F. Kennedy wrote, in “The Truth About COVID-19”:
“The medical profession has not proven itself an energetic defender of democratic institutions or civil rights. Virtually every doctor in Germany took lead roles in the Third Reich’s project to eliminate mental defectives, homosexuals, handicapped citizens and Jews. So many hundreds of German physicians participated in Hitler’s worst atrocities — including managing mass murder and unspeakable experiments at the death camps — that the allies had to stage separate “Medical Trials” at Nuremberg. Not a single prominent German doctor or medical association raised their voice in opposition to these projects. So it’s unsurprising that, instead of demanding blue-ribbon safety science and encouraging honest, open and responsible debate on the science, the badly compromised and newly empowered government health officials charged with managing the COVID-19 pandemic response collaborated with mainstream and social media to shut down discussion on key public health and civil rights questions.”
The mask gambit, in one graphic:
The truth is, the media outright lies., including masks. And pair that with a medical system that is co-opted and corrupt. And as Sayer Ji has noted, you cannot make ethical medical decisions unless you know both the risks and the benefits, so the censorship of medical information is, in a very real sense, a violation of human rights. A peer-reviewed paper, COVID-19: Restoring Public Trust During a Global Health Crisis — An Evidence-Based Position Paper to Ensure Ethical Conduct,” discussed this issue further, available here. Basically, this substantiates Dr. Peter McCullough’s allegation of rampant, wanton misconduct among public health officials, the active suppression of safe and effective treatments, and pandemic measures being implemented based on incorrect assumptions and outright lies. Even Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of the Lancet himself said April 15, 2015 “Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” Marcia Angell, the former editor of the NEJM, similarly wrote in 2009 “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” Here is Angell interviewed live at a Harvard Medical School interview (at least, while YouTube hasn’t yet banned it).
Dr. Leeman Henry, PhD, Univ. of Edinborough reviews the same issue here and here. Of course there is the famed study by Dr. Barbara Starwood, MD, out of Johns Hopkins, finding a couple decades ago that almost a quarter million die every year from medical caused death. Famed “left the reservation” Pulitzer-nominated reporter Jon Rappoport’s interview with Starfield here).
Mercola did some more digging and presented a list of links to articles in “respectable media” about various unseemly practices, including by the very pharma companies that we are supposed to idolize today. His list below:

And just remember, as you dutifully wear your mask, your betters don’t need to. The list is too large to enumerate, so just a few here. A quick DuckDuckGo or SwissCows web search (what? You are still using corrupt, co-opted Google??) will show pictures of Gov. Newsome at the uber-luxe French Laundry restaurant, both Nancy Pelosi and Chicago mayor Lightfoot violating their own rule to get their hair done, Dr. Fauci not wearing his mask at a baseball game, Gov. Whitmer deciding it was fine for her to travel to Florida before she was vaccinated to see her father, etc. Too bad things like Whitmer-esque hypocrisy is no excuse for us poor, unwashed peasants, or Whitmer’s director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services— the very department issuing the warnings not to travel – who was caught heading out on vacation, while another member took a spring trip to Florida after her government specifically told people not to go to Florida as it wasn’t locked down. But my all-time favourite mask hypocrite is Sarah Chambers, on the executive board of the Chicago Teachers Union. She posted a picture on Instagram that appears to show her pool side in Puerto Rico and talking about going to Old San Juan for seafood. But hey, her screen says she is “4 Justice,” so all is OK… or not. Must be nice to be modern day Marie Antoinettes in Michigan, California and Chicago, right “Guv.” Whitmer, Rep. Pelosi, and Ms. Chambers?
Of course, MIT reported April 2021 that social distancing does nothing either, particularly with masks on, but at this point, do any of the mask police care about actual fact? Rather, if we want to stop the spread, take off your mask in the grocery store and ask that obese person behind you with a cartload of Pepsi, Twinkies and Captain Crunch high fructose corn syrup cereal to leave the store. Why? Turns out obese people may be the super spreaders of Covid. See study by PNAS, telling us “Adults age 26 and younger and those with a body mass index, or BMI, below 22 were “low spreaders of [the] exhaled” respiratory droplets from the nose and mouth that transmit the coronavirus, the data showed. Conversely, adults with a higher BMI, which measures body weight according to a person’s height, exhaled more of these droplets, particularly as they aged. The findings may help explain how some people become “superspreaders” of COVID-19 and pass the virus on to large numbers of people, the researchers said. Thirty-five, or 18%, of the 194 participants in the study generated 80% of the exhaled respiratory droplets produced by the group as a whole, with older, heavier participants driving that spread.” stories, here, here, here or at Tulane University news here. What’s next? Lock down the obese?
To close out the mask gambit, hear this impassioned plea from a Georgia mother of three on what the mask mandate on her young kids – who have virtually ZERO chance of dying from it – has to say. Then after listening to this, ask your local mask supporter how they can live with themselves while doing so much evil. And as Tucker Carlson noted on his show in April, masks were “purely a sign of political obedience like Kim Il-Sung pins in Pyongyang” and that the only people who voluntarily wear masks outside are “zealots and neurotics.”
And if we need masks, as Jeff Harris wrote at the Ron Paul Inst.: “You would think that during the worst Pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu life insurance companies would be hedging their bets to avoid major losses from Covid-19. I haven’t written a life policy for several years so I was wondering what was going on? I called one of the brokers I deal with that interacts with hundreds of big life insurers to get an inside look into how the Covid crisis has changed their business. Imagine my surprise when she said it was pretty much business as usual! Last year when the hysteria was just getting ramped up she did say the companies temporarily tightened up underwriting and reduced the amount of coverage they would offer. But as time went by and the hard data came rolling in those same companies went back to business as usual. I asked her specifically if life insurers wanted a Covid test as part of the underwriting process and she said none that she was aware of. Hmm, that’s pretty interesting isn’t it? The most lethal pandemic in decades descends on the globe with deadly mutations taking millions of innocent lives and the life insurance companies couldn’t care less. I also asked if the cost per thousand of coverage had increased due to Covid and again she said no. Rates were pretty much the same as they were before the Covid Pandemic ravaged the earth. Life Insurance companies are very risk adverse. They don’t like losing money to unnecessary claims. The fact they’re treating Covid as a nonevent should be an indicator that something is very wrong with the whole narrative.”
