    Dear Texas Elections Officials: My office is receiving reports that certain poll watchers, election clerks, and other individuals administering elections are being barred from executing their duties on account of not wearing a mask or face-covering. This is wrong. This letter serves as a reminder that on July 2, 2020, Governor Abbott issued Executive Order No. GA-29 relating to the use of face coverings during the COVID-19 disaster. See attached. The Order states plainly that the statewide "face-covering requirement does not apply to ... any person who is voting, assisting a voter, serving as a poll watcher, or actively administering...

    BARRON COUNTY, Wis. -- A Barron County judge has ruled that a temporary restraining order against Gov. Tony Evers' order restricting indoor capacity in Wisconsin bars and restaurants be lifted, meaning that it is once again in effect. Earlier this month, Gov. Evers ordered new restrictions limiting indoor capacity to 25 percent at all bars, restaurants, and stores statewide. Many business owners complained their businesses won't survive. The Tavern League of Wisconsin sued, and last week Sawyer County Judge Don Yackel temporarily blocked the order with a restraining order. Monday, Judge James Babler removed the restraining order, arguing the plaintiffs...

    California and other blue states, 200+ days into "15 days to slow the spread," are rapidly headed toward "just obey our dictates and wait for the next five-year plan."Governor Newsom's recentguidelines on gatherings, such as Thanksgiving, may sound like a crazy joke, but it isn't: Gatherings that include more than3 households are prohibited. This includes everyone present, including hosts and guests.Remember, the smaller the number of people, the safer. The host should collect names of all attendees and contact information in case contact tracing is needed later. Gatherings that occur outdoors are significantly safer than indoor gatherings. All gatherings...

    With cases surging to new highs and hospital capacity running low, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum teared up describing a state caught in the middle of a covid storm.... many Republican governors are resisting new measures to stop the spread. Some are even loosening rules already on the books. Instead, they preach the mantra of personal responsibility, insisting that government interventions such as mask mandates or business restrictions are either unnecessary or harmful, and that people should be trusted to make their own decisions about how to keep themselves and each other healthy.... Republican governors have mimicked aspects...

    Twitter on Sunday removed a tweet from one of President Donald Trump's top Covid-19 advisers falsely claiming masks don't work to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The tweet no longer appeared on the site as of Sunday morning, replaced with a note saying "This Tweet is no longer available" and a link to Twitter's rules and policies explaining why the company removes or limits certain posts. The tweet in question, posted on Saturday by Dr. Scott Atlas, read, "Masks work? NO: LA, Miami, Hawaii, Alabama, France, Phlippnes, UK, Spain, Israel.

    Yesterday (Oct. 16), Five Finger Death Punch released a music video for "Living the Dream." The video was rife with social commentary, some of which has been met with backlash for the way people who wear a mask to mitigate the spread of a pandemic contagion) are compliant under a Communist system of government or one that resembles such. Guitarist Zoltan Bathory has issued a lengthy statement, clarifying the intent behind the video, denying it bears an anti-mask message. In his statement, Bathory alleges news media outlets forewent explaining what his message in the "Living the Dream" video...

    Having had this virus, I can also assure those who have not had it of a few things. It is something to take very seriously. The ramifications are wildly random and potentially deadly. No one should be happy to get the virus and no one should be cavalier about being infected or infecting others. But as a former public official, I believe we have not treated Americans as adults, who understand truth, sacrifice and responsibility that I know them to be. I have also concluded that like much else in 2020, that the virus is governed by our two dominant...

    Come midnight it will be 215 days since the institution of the infamous Flatten the Curve. 15 days, they told us, for 15 days/roughly 2 weeks we need to work from home, close non-essential business, cancel concerts, baby showers, bingo games, etc., yada, yada, you know the thing (to show my solidarity with a certain presidential candidate) in order to give hospitals a chance to gear up for huge, terrible, overwhelming waves of rona patients. 15 days. Instead, 15 days has now become 215 days. We can argue as to the exact start date of the implementation of Operation Curve...

    GREENVILLE, SCAs Halloween approaches, haunted house attractions and extreme horror experiences are competing for the crown of "most horrifying haunted house in the country." According to horror enthusiasts, a new attraction called Maskless Murder Mansion has left the competition in the dust with a twisted new vision of horror: an old mansion filled with regular people who happen to not be wearing masks. "Yeah we know this is really messed up stuff," said Zach McDongle, owner and mastermind behind the attraction. "So far, no one has had the courage to make it all the way through." For anyone brave enough...

    An overlooked study published recently by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that cloth face coverings or masks are mostly ineffective in preventing the spread of the Chinese coronavirus as promoted by public health officials. The CDC conducted the study, largely ignored by the media, in the U.S. in July and made its findings public in September. It compared 154 case-patients, those who tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus disease), and a control group of 160 control-participants, those who were symptomatic but tested negative. CDC researchers examined participants who reported wearing a cloth face covering or mask...
  • Maskers vs Anti-Maskers: The 5-Inch Strip of Fabric that Divided-and-Conquered the World

    Lenora Thompson, Patriotic Writer ^ | 10/14/2020 | Lenora Thompson, Writer
    In the Good Ol' Days, it took really big things to divide-and-conquer. Religion. Race. Territory. Greed. Honour. Now, all it takes is a 5" strip of fabric. Saul Alinsky must be so proud. There are the maskers and the anti-maskers and never the twain shall meet. Both sides of the argument cite science but the older I get, the more clear it becomes that so-called science, like so-called COVID-19 statistics, will "prove" whatever the sponsor of the study wants it to prove. Numbers can be inflated because people have agendas. Now I was raised by germaphobes. I once bragged, "I...

    ...Well, now Devine has given us a glimpse into the galaxy-level brain behind Ohios mask mandate via a warning he issued to his constituents on Twitter. According to DeWine, things are likely to get worse before they get better because, unlike most microscopic entities, the COVID-19 virus brace yourself has a mind of its own. And, sadly for Ohio and the rest of the world as well, it turns out that SARS-CoV-2s mind is both debased, making it sneaky and cunning, and tenacious to boot. The damnable little bugger just wont give up. Its difficult to imagine a stupider remark....

    CLAIM More people who wear masks become sick with COVID-19 compared to non-mask wearers, therefore masks dont work or are making us ill SOURCE: Jordan Davidson, The Federalist, 12 Oct. 2020 DETAILS Flawed reasoning: The comparison made in the claim is not related to mask effectiveness, but is simply the result of the fact that the study included many more people who wear masks as compared to people who never wore masks to begin with. Of all 314 individuals in the study, there were only 11 who never wore masks. By default, a comparison of the proportions of people who...

    Once again it appears there are conflicting facts, data and plenty of opinions about the efficacy of wearing masks to prevent contracting the Coronavirus. In addition to causing maskne and skin infections on the face and around the mouth, persistent coughing, mask mouth, and respiratory illnesses including lung infections, it turns out that most everyone infected with COVID-19 always wore masks, according to a newly published study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The study found 74.2% reported wearing masks always while 14.5% worse masks often. It is difficult not to conclude that wearing non-surgical cloth face masks...

    If someone had asked you a year ago what you thought of people who wear masks after Halloween, the chances are your reaction would have been negative. What kind of person covers his face in public? Armed robbers do that sort of thing. So do Klansmen and radical Wahhabis. The rest of us don't do that. In fact, until recently, wearing a mask in public was illegal in many places. The assumption was if you're hiding who you are, you're up to something bad. It made people nervous. By our nature, we want to see each other. We need to...
