Joe Biden is running around claiming to be President-elect.
By doing so Biden is usurping President Trump’s authority.
Joe Biden got hit with some bad news that made him rethink everything.
During the entire campaign Joe Biden lied to the American people, falsely claiming that government policy could stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Biden’s coronavirus plan was essentially the same as the Trump administration’s with one key difference: Biden planned on imposing what critics claimed was a tyrannical and oppressive national mask mandate.
“It’s time to end the politicization of basic, responsible public health steps like mask-wearing and social distancing,” Biden claimed in a speech after the election. “The single most effective thing we can do to stop the spread of COVID: Wear a mask.”
Biden claimed he was “following the science” in imposing a mandate on the American people to wear masks in public.
But what does the science say?
This past spring Denmark conducted the world’s first random clinical trial on the effectiveness of masks.
6,000 participants enrolled where half were told to wear a mask in public when they left their homes and the other half did not wear a mask.
The results were striking.
“About 4,860 participants completed the study. The researchers had hoped that masks would cut the infection rate by half among wearers. Instead, 42 people in the mask group, or 1.8 percent, got infected, compared with 53 in the unmasked group, or 2.1 percent. The difference was not statistically significant,” The New York Times reported.
University of Copenhagen cardiologist Dr. Henning Bundgaard, who was the lead author of the study, declared thatmasks showed no benefit in slowing the spread of the coronavirus.
“Our study gives an indication of how much you gain from wearing a mask,” Dr. Henning Bundgaard explained. “Not a lot.”
University of Oslo medical decision-making professor Dr. Mette Kalager wrote to The New York Times in an email that “although there might be a symbolic effect,” she added that “the effect of wearing a mask does not substantially reduce risk.”
If the science shows masks are not effective in preventing infection, why do politicians and so-called “public health” experts support wearing them with religious ferocity?
The answer is that mandating masks makes it look like politicians and health bureaucrats have a handle on the virus and are taking action.
But the truth of the matter is government policy cannot stop people from getting sick.
Europe enacted stricter lockdowns last spring and mandated masks for months.
But the coronavirus returned with a massive spike in the fall despite fake news pundits and health “experts” claiming Europe “crushed” the virus with harsh lockdowns.
Mandating masks allows politicians and their so-called “health experts” to escape blame for their disastrous shutdowns and other oppressive coronavirus restrictions because they can tell the public they “followed the science” and took decisive action.
