The Dirty Truth

Updated: Jun 25, 2021

"When I was a child

I caught a fleeting glimpse

Out of the corner of my eye.

I turned to look but it was gone

I cannot put my finger on it now

The child is grown,

The dream is gone.

I have become comfortably numb."

Comfortably Numb, Pink Floyd

In the beginning, we were all scared.

A new virus was spreading around the world, people were being forced home and many were, inexplicably, hoarding toilet paper, as if that was the one thing that we couldn’t live without.

This is a perfect demonstration of illogical, fear-based thinking.

And this is what I aim to draw our attention to as I post a shocking new finding.

In the beginning, we were told not to mask, then told to mask, then required to mask.

In a typical group-think response, those not following the new rules were chastised and ridiculed and even punished.

There was no discussion -- despite decades of well-established science showing masks to be ineffective against coronaviruses.

But our un-debated policies and lockstep obedience kept happening, over and over.

Social distancing, lockdowns, self-quarantine for asymptomatic people, mandatory mask, experimental vaccines, curfews, closed borders -- and closed schools, parks, and playgrounds.

Even children have been sacrificed for a supposed greater good.

It is this last point that has, for many, been the final straw.

Children are not spreaders of covid.

And yet, they have been forced out of school, kept away from friends, and been subjected to damaging protocols that will likely be felt for decades to come.

If you have not already seen the stories of massive increases in children’s mental health issues, including a rise in suicide among young people, check out just a few of them here...

But there is a brand new story that is yet another opportunity to awaken…

Thankfully, a few thinking parents in Florida weren’t content to just do as they were told when it came to the health and safety of their children.

They decided to look into their kids’ masks -- literally.

The parents sent the masks to a laboratory for analysis.

What did they find?

• Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumonia)

• Mycobacterium tuberculosis (tuberculosis)

• Neisseria meningitidis (meningitis, sepsis)

• Acanthamoeba polyphaga (keratitis and granulomatous amebic encephalitis)

• Acinetobacter baumanni (pneumonia, blood stream infections, meningitis, UTIs— resistant to antibiotics)

• Escherichia coli (food poisoning)

• Borrelia burgdorferi (causes Lyme disease)

• Corynebacterium diphtheriae (diphtheria)

• Legionella pneumophila (Legionnaires’ disease)

• Staphylococcus pyogenes serotype M3 (severe infections—high morbidity rates)

• Staphylococcus aureus (meningitis, sepsis)

This was after one day of 5-8 hours of use.

The masks were new or freshly laundered at the start of the day.

As one parent from the study said, “We need to know what we are putting on the faces of our children each day. Masks provide a warm, moist environment for bacteria to grow.”

While the results of the test are horrifying, the fact that these parents took action is inspiring.

In the beginning, our fears gave us an excuse not to question.

And I know that science is being obfuscated, media is distracting us with un-contextualized “case” and death stats, and that fear is still running rampant.

But we must now find the courage to stop and think for ourselves, and in particular for those who don’t yet have the capacity to do so.

During the Spanish flu frightened people also tried masks. A few years ago Anthony Fauci co-authored a paper that found many deaths attributed to the Spanish flu were actually from misdiagnosed bacteriological pneumonia. The paper did not blame masks but it is the logical conclusion. Like everything else the government has forced upon us masks only make things worse.
