1/UK Education Secretary has been told to publish the scientific evidence that shows "nonsensical" face masks in the classroom are necessary to prevent C19 transmission in secondary schools, or reverse the measure.
telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/03/0…
2/ “Upon what evidence is your department relying in order to recommend that masks in classrooms are today necessary – rather than ‘nonsensical’ – now that the four most vulnerable groups have ‘substantial protection’,” the letter asks.
3/ The recommendation for secondary pupils to wear masks during lessons “significantly undermines” the Government’s insistence that it is a “national priority” to educate children, according to a letter signed by hundreds of medics, academics, teachers and parents.
4/ The letter, organised by the parent campaign group UsForThem, points out that the Prime Minister has previously described face masks in the classroom as “nonsensical” and said that “you can’t teach with face coverings and you can’t expect people to learn with face coverings.”
5/ The signatories say that unless the scientific evidence can be published to justify the measure and unless it can be shown that the intervention has been “properly evaluated for potential harms to both psychological and physical health”, it must be reversed.
6/ Signatories of the open letter to Gavin Williamson include Dennis Hayes, emeritus professor of education at Derby University, Ellen Townsend, professor of psychology at Nottingham University, as well as the former Supreme Court judge Lord Sumption.
7/ The letter goes on to point out that there “appears to have been little or no consideration” given to the negative outcomes of face masks being worn in classrooms.

Ashli Babbitt's family's legal team releases statement: "The shooting of Ashli Babbitt on January 6, 2021 by an unidentified U.S. Capitol Police Officer was an unjustified use of deadly force which violated her constitutional rights"
sharylattkisson.com/2021/03/ashli-…
"It is clear from video footage that Ashli did not pose a danger to the officer, or any other person, when she was shot. Ashli was unarmed. She did not assault anyone. She did not threaten to harm anyone. There was no excuse for taking her life."
"the officer who shot Ashli never attempted to arrest her. Nor did he call on his fellow officers to arrest her. Instead, he fired a shot into her chest. Witnesses confirm that the officer did not give Ashli a single verbal warning prior to firing"

1/Hunter Biden’s Laptop: The Biopsy That Turned Up a Cancer on America | The Stream stream.org/hunter-bidens-…
2/Jack Maxey has shown more courage and patriotism than 1000s of professional journalists, and dozens of CIA and FBI veterans who swore oaths on the Bible to defend the US Constitution. Maxey has uploaded the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop — minus the porn — onto the Internet
3/ The documents from that laptop aren’t gossip, fake oppo research, or “Russian disinformation.” They’re pieces of tissue pulled from our body politic and sent out to oncologists for testing.

1/ "Academic Freedom in Crisis" (Due to Neo-Marxist, Pseudo-"Academic" Totalitarianism): “70% of conservative academics report a hostile departmental climate for their beliefs.” cspicenter.org/reports/academ…
2/ “over 9 in 10 Trump-supporting academics & 8 in 10 Brexit-supporting academics say they would not feel comfortable expressing their views to a colleague. More than half of North American & British conservative academics admit self-censoring in research and teaching”
3/ “Younger academics & PhD students, especially in the U.S., are significantly more willing than older academics to support dismissing controversial scholars from their posts, indicating that the problem of progressive authoritarianism is likely to get worse in the coming years”

2/ "Rhode Islanders, and all Americans under the yoke of ill-conceived public mask mandates need to understand the complete absence of high-quality, practical, field tested evidence supporting involuntary, coercive public masking policies"
3/ "Danish investigators published the results during mid-November, 2020 of a randomized, controlled study conducted in 4862 persons which found that masking did not reduce SARS-CoV-2 (covid-19) infection rates to a statistically significant, or clinically relevant extent."

mol.im/a/9305405
2/ Medical experts have cited pressure on doctors to include Covid-19 as a cause of death because it was last year ruled a ‘notifiable disease’, meaning any case needs to be reported officially
3/ A funeral director in the North West told the Mail: ‘The way Covid has been recorded and reported is a national scandal and a thorough enquiry should be opened immediately.’
