Say good-bye to Faucism!

Imagine waiting for the CDC to give you permission to walk outside without a mask.

Here is some silliness for a Wednesday.  

Enjoy! UPDATE:

The police officer who posted a hilarious video mocking LeBron James has been suspended from his job over the harmless joke.

Nate Silvester, a detective in Twin Falls, Idaho, aimed to “humanize the badge” 

Bonus of more silliness

Wishing you a wonderful day!

CDC says masks have no statistical impact on spread of Covid – will continue pushing masks

 

All smoke and mirrors. Keep wearing those rags folks. Here is the report with government word salad. So Dr. Fauci what is the bottom line?

The CDC recommends wearing masks after their study showed that related to COVID, the results of wearing masks were statistically the same as the results when not wearing masks.

During March 1–December 31, 2020, state-issued mask mandates applied in 2,313 (73.6%) of the 3,142 U.S. counties. Mask mandates were associated with a 0.5 percentage point decrease (p = 0.02) in daily COVID-19 case growth rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.1, 1.5, 1.7, and 1.8 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01 for all) (Table 1) (Figure). Mask mandates were associated with a 0.7 percentage point decrease (p = 0.03) in daily COVID-19 death growth rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.0, 1.4, 1.6, and 1.9 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01 for all). Daily case and death growth rates before implementation of mask mandates were not statistically different from the reference period.

The results of a CDC study at first appear to show that wearing masks help reduce the spread of COVID:

The results from before wearing masks were not statistically different than the period wearing masks – thus the CDC will continue recommending Americans wear masks???

 

Flashback to January 21, 2021 with Fauci, full of himself, telling us that  science rules.

That is the best of the swamp today

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot looking forward to Biden’s science

 

It’s been a rough week so I thought I would throw in the bizarre and absurd.

Mayor Lightfoot has her priorities. I am sure Chicagoans will be pleased to know the Mayor is worried about the health of her city. She might want to think about what to do about her killing fields but what the heck…oh, and the science? Let’s check in with Dr. Fauci.

 

 

Yes…. it’s all about the science.

 

That is the best of the swamp…other than this……

Surgeon General and WHO ‘mask’ position just comes out – lies, lies and more lies

 

They play us for fools….and this one takes me over the top. They insult our intelligence and are laughing at us.

We are wrapping rags around our mouths…rags that do nothing and are more likely to increase the risk of infection.

So Doctor Surgeon General, what happens when we put our rags around our mouth?

Follow the dates: First

 

Then they told us we should wear bandanas…. now we are to hunker down and make our own. How much more will Americans take of this total nonsense? Apparently plenty.

You want to talk about inept, we have gone from masks don’t work to everybody needs a mask in weeks. Thank you CDC, WHO, and Surgeon General. My confidence in you is off the Charts.

Meanwhile the world walks around not only with surgical masks but N95’s. Surgical masks protect OTHERS from you. You? Zip. N95’s protect YOU from others and others from you. Cloth masks don’t do squat except maybe make you sick. Tell me, which one would you chose?

If they protect doctors and nurses then why would they not protect citizens?

Tell me how is it we are not infecting ourselves putting on these rags?? Note how he touches all aspects of his material –

 

 

Now this past Monday WHO comes out with masks are bad. I swear they want to kill us. Guess Who is the head of WHO?

 

 

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is NOT an actual medical doctor.

He’s not:  Tedros was elected as Director-General of the World Health Organization by the World Health Assembly on 23 May 2017,[becoming the first director-general who is not a medical doctor.[Wiki footnote #58].

Thanks go to David Drake for the info on Tedros.

Lots of luck with this.

Advice on the use of masks in the context of COVID-19

Global health officials still insist that medical masks should be reserved for health-care workers, even as an increasing number of governments recommend the general public wear them to help slow the spread of coronavirus.

“There is currently no evidence that wearing a mask, whether medical or other types, by healthy persons in the wider community setting, including universal community masking, can prevent them from infection with respiratory viruses, including Covid-19,” a report released late Monday by the World Health Organization said.

Nevertheless, countries around the world are advising people to wear masks. Asian governments recommend them in crowded places, while eastern European countries have mandated wearing them in public. The U.S. last week recommended Americans wear nonmedical cloth masks in public, whether they’re infected or not.

 

Overview

This document provides advice on the use of masks in communities, during home care, and in health care settings in areas that have reported cases of COVID-19. It is intended for individuals in the community, public health and infection prevention and control (IPC) professionals, health care managers, health care workers (HCWs), and community health workers. This updated version includes a section on Advice to decision makers on the use of masks for healthy people in community settings.

Yep

As those jackass Docs of Trump at the daily briefing always start out.

“Looking at the granular data.” Well here is the so called granular data.

Okay, you want to get people back to work? Give them N-95’s.  That’s it folks…..the best of the swamp. I have had my say.

For more on masks see earlier posts:

Making best use of you N95 Respirators and other options

 

Coronavirus – Time to stock up on N95 Respirator masks

 

A good prepper should make sure they have a supply of N95 Respirator masks on hand. Just in case the virus gets out of hand. For peace of mind. I’ll give you three of my picks.

At the time of the SARS scare, there was a shortage of masks with many hospitals having to struggle to purchase an adequate supply.

Amazon still is offering masks at a reasonable cost but that will probably change as the demand may increase. I note some suppliers are on delayed delivery.

What you need to know about a good mask. You want more than the flimsy paper masks that you get when you go to the Doctor’s office with a cold.

NIOSH-Approved N95 Particulate Filtering Facepiece … – CDC

https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/npptl/topics/respirators/disp_part/n95list1.html

 

The N95 respirator is the most common of the seven types of particulate filtering facepiece respirators.

 

CDC: Dated but gives you the facts.

N95 Respirators and Surgical Masks

Posted on  by Lisa Brosseau, ScD, and Roland Berry Ann –

With the advent of a novel H1N1 influenza outbreak in spring 2009 and the expectation of a second wave during the 2009–2010 flu season, there has been considerable interest in the use of surgical masks (facemasks) and respirators as infection control measures. Although their appearance is often similar, respirators are designed and engineered for distinctly different functions than surgical masks. The amount of exposure reduction offered by respirators and surgical masks differs. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend the use of a NIOSH-certified N95 or better respirator for the protection of healthcare workers who come in direct contact with patients with H1N1.

The CDC guidance can be found  In September 2009 the Institute of Medicine released a report that also recommends N95 respirators for the protection of healthcare workers from H1N1. This blog examines the scientific principles behind the design and performance of surgical masks and respirators. Although these principles apply to all particulate respirators, the discussion presented in this article is focused on the most frequently used respirator in healthcare settings, the N95 filtering facepiece respirator (FFR).

N95 Respirators and Surgical Masks

 

Continues:  Additionally, the NIOSH Respirator Trusted-Source Information Page can help users identify NIOSH-approved respirators and learn how to use and obtain these products.

Previously I worked in healthcare. 3M is the gold standard. When looking to purchase be sure the image matches the description. No knock offs from China with this purchase.

This is a good one if you will be wearing it for an extended period of time.

 

 

Another good one if you can snag it. Easier and more comfortable breathing as above.

NEW 8511PB1-A-PS Particulate N95 Respirator with Valve, 10-Pack

3M Particulate Respirator 8210, N95,

This is an inexpensive mask.. less than a buck a piece last I checked Amazon. An Amazon top pick. Some vendors back ordered.. Not individually packaged and not as comfortable but will get the job done for short hauls.

No need to panic, but buy them now. I checked Amazon last night and several have moved out completely. Checked vendors. Some gouging underway.

The swamp is not moving on this as they should, so it’s up to us for peace of mind.

For the best in conservative news its.
