But does science matter anymore?
Clearly, it does not. On Monday I went to see my retinologist, a physician who I have always regarded as my best. But, unlike other offices in the very same building his office still requires masking. Every time I go I try to reason with the staff. This time I was told if I did not wear a mask I would be forced to leave the office and forego my appointment. Unlike the other times, after the doctor had examined me I brought up the subject and he read me the EXACT same fallacious talking points I heard from another physician who was quoted in the Chicago Tribune and to whom I wrote an email:
1. Virus spreads through droplets and masks block droplets (false, they do not as they are small enough to pass through).
2 He asserted that the masks do not need to be sterile but "clean." So, when his secretary clutched mask in her (clean?) fingers and thrust it at me, there could be no virions or bacteria on that mask, right?
3. "Would you want to have surgery with someone who wasn;t wearing a mask?" love that one, since it ducts the entire question of the evidentiary basis for mask use, apart from the fact there are studies that show a greater infection risk for certain surgeries with masks.
They treated me like a child, and I bitterly resent it. Therefore, I doubt I can remain his patient, even though he is well informed when it comes to his specialty.
In your opinion, is the Cochran Library still the gold standard and did it make it through the pandemic unscathed? Now that most else of the Medical profession, (CDC, WHO, NIH, FDA, The Lancet, Many/most doctors and health professionals, etc.) has been tarnished to say the least, it would be nice to know that there exists something we can still (at this point) trust.

15% of Americans getting the bivalent when it is "stroke season"? This is a mass mental illness in this day and age. And 8% of children 6 months to <5 years? Child abuse!
BTW, why are we still calling this "vaccination" on this Substack?
Thank you for this information. I have worn N-95s for decades in my woodworking shop and found that even with the mask in place, at the end of the day when I blow my nose there is always brown dust in the blow. So I knew from this experience that they were not all that effective for the minute particles. And the virus is even smaller.
Dr. Malone sir, thank you for the stand you have taken. I am a subscriber. May I ask a question? so... Where can I research for my wife on how to minimize recurring respiratory infections. Our Doc, thinks it is because she had covid and is weakened... we are never Vaxers... I refuse to accept that it is inevitalble, we want to maximize her fight to strengthen, as it hits every two the three months or therabouts....since covid 2 years ago .. Thanks, Larry Alderman, Mt.

We either live in truth or we risk dying psychologically as cowards. If I had school-aged children and resided in one of these states, I think the only answer would be to move. The 'powers that be' obviously couldn't give a rat's @$$ about the people, other than as taxable units.
This is just another way for this wanna be totalitarian government to infringe on families and their kids. Like all governments that want to destroy constitutional freedoms, it starts with a crisis, (don’t let a good crisis go to waste), then executive orders, divide the public, and corrupt kids to go against their parents. Sound familiar? It’s exactly what Hitler did. They used the Reichstag fire to start the executive orders to protect the people. The democrats tried January 6th and then Covid to destroy the constitution. This has nothing to do with keeping people healthy, masks don’t work. It’s all about power and control. I think they will drag this out as long as they can... J.Goodrich
Read the book "Science in the Private Interest". Krimsky
When scientific research is manipulated to create a preplanned conclusion for profit we are being had.
It's fraud and those perpetuating these frauds need to be jailed. Medical research has been manipulated in this way for the last 50 years. The drum beat goes on. mRNA injections is just the latest. The research is corrupt and liability has been suspended.
My friend had a positive result from Cologuard and needed an immediate colonoscopy. I took her. They made us wear masks. They would not let me sit with her before they called her in. They made me leave the building. They made her wear a mask all the way in to the procedure room. They would not let me go into the recovery room to be with her to hear the results. I had to wear a mask to meet her at the door to get her in to the car (but I did not). Repulsive. This woman was going there to find out if she indeed had cancer and they made her go it alone with a mask on like so much unfeeling meat. Thankfully she was clear. But what if not? We don’t even have high case counts here. What the hell are they doing? I am spreading the news that no one should ever go to that place again. The medical profession is dead and I don’t think I will ever set foot in a doctors office again.
It's Year Four and for particular reasons certain hospitals, doctors. dentists, schools, et al still act like the CCP virus demands PPE. What might those reasons be? We know why the schools do. The unions are following the steps for dumbing down the children, and this is just one aspect to do so. But why the others? One would probably need to dissect the chain of command for each. This January my dentist finally dropped the mask mandate, I could freely walk the halls of the doctor's building without a mask, however I had to wear one while inside my pulmonary doctor's office. Did I complain, yes. They certainly know their patience can’t breathe well. I dropped it down below my nose and no one made a peep. I ask the nurse and the doc to take off their masks so I could understand them by reading their lips. They compiled. Conclusion – masks are meant to invoke fear and to alienate one another. I still have a vivid recall of the first time in 2021 I walked into a very busy convenience store/ gas station on a major highway MASK Free! Everyone in there was smiling!
It is beginning to look like some degree of schizophrenia has has invaded the medical profession. It has been known ever since the Spanish flu those damned masks are useless in preventing the spread of respiratory viruses. Yet every time you go to one today every one of them wears a mask. And all these new studies on mask efficiency are simply gliding the grant grubbing lily.
When the masks mandates came out in 2020 we had the masks at home. My husband decided to make an experiment.We have this bathroom cleaner that when you spray it in the shower to clean the shower it makes you cough. Well my husband decided that if the masks are suppose to keep out the Covid virus it should work on the bathroom cleaner. So he sprayed it and he started to cough. Well right then we got our answer. If it can’t keep the big droplets of cleaner out how can it keep out the virus. Also it can get in your eyes and infect you. So we never bought into the mask mandates.
Thank you for continuing to get the information out to us.
Yeah, it never made any sense to me; the surgical masks are designed for bacteria retention, not viruses. Bacteria are approximately 10x the size of a virus. Additionally, when you sneeze or cough into a surgical mask, the outward pressure blasts every virus particle within the mask, out into the enviroment. The 3M company, N-95 mask, properly sized, performs much better. Unfortunately these days the N-95 is made in China. Imagine that! ;)
You lost me at “COVID pandemic”. It never was a pandemic. The global psychopaths changed the definition of “pandemic and vaccine” to fit their narrative. If you could please fix that, then I can read your article.
LIVE NOT BY LIES.
I tell Covidiots the obedience rag is equivalent to a chain link fence used to block mosquitos. Neither stops the air flow with the pests or pestilence, or otherwise protects. Neither "works."
I add it would be even worse if it the rag DID work because it would prevent us from sharing pathogens. I ask, how do you build muscle? Resistance. How do we build immunity? A different form of resistance, but resistance nonetheless: we share pathogens. You WANT to share pathogens. That is essential to build immunity.
As a kid I ate dirt and drank from (eeee!) the same water hose. As a result, I have a decent immune system. I tell those who would be willingly enslaved, they'd better hope the mask does not work.
What? Get rid of masking and mask mandates?
But how will the faithful be able to show their fealty to the collective and their towering virtue over us troglodyte commoners?
And what about depriving the rest of us of our greatest daily comedic moment - the solitary driver, masked and alone, weaving in and out of lanes, torpid from oxygen deprivation, eyes darting fervidly, on the run from.......?????? The proto-typical proggie. Delivered for our mirthful entertainment.
