It is hard to overstate the cruelty & absurdity of mandating tens of millions of children wear masks in school.

CDC stats, extrapolated to correct for severely at-risk, show approx. 18 healthy children died with COVID over 18 months of data.

This is roughly 1 per month.🔻 1/8
This is because around 95% of deaths with COVID have severe comorbidities, such as obesity, heart disease & other major illnesses.

The full data set can be found below at the CDC: 2/8
cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr…
Furthermore, mask efficacy with a population that is not at risk and with low mortality rates makes little sense.

The CDC estimated daily case & mortality growth rate at just -0.9%-1.9% after 100 days.

This is negligible in the childhood population. 3/8
cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/7…
But other mask studies shows even lower efficacy. An academic study has cast even further doubt:

"Case growth was not significantly different between mandate and non-mandate states at low or high transmission rates, and surges were equivocal." 4/8
medrxiv.org/content/10.110…
Another study shows carbon dioxide levels from wearing masks “suggest(s) that children should not be forced to wear face masks.”

(It should be noted the CDC disagrees with this assessment.*) 5/8
jamanetwork.com/journals/jamap…
Even more concerening are soaring depression & anxiety rates among children.

"Rates of suicidal ideation are highest among youth," a 2020 report pointed out.

Thus, mask mandates may contribute to social alienation and may indeed cost lives. 6/8

A new study whose results were published at WSJ shows young people may be impacted even less by COVID than originally thought.

“Children are at extremely slim risk of dying from Covid-19, according to some of the most comprehensive studies to date." 7/8

"The pandemic & its economic fallout are taking a toll on the mental health of many Americans. But the burden is perhaps greatest for those on the brink of adulthood."

We are causing real damage with overreaction to this virus. It's time to say 'enough.'

These "fact checking" orgs need to be sued for slander & dragged through the courts. Expose the 'fact checkers' who work for these orgs as activist hacks who have a partisan, malicious interest in smearing those they disagree with politically.

Why hasn't this been done already?
This could easily be done in discovery. Subpoena them and make them appear as fact witnesses. Show their track records of activism and political bias. This is a no-brainer case.
Dare I say, "class action"?🤔 @barnes_law @pnjaban @RonColeman

"The FBI has continued to perform warrantless searches through the NSA’s most sensitive databases for routine criminal investigations, despite being told by a federal judge in 2018 and 2019 that such a use was an unconstitutional breach of privacy." (1/4)

A huge media mystery is why the corporate media *refuse* to really dig into the circumstances of the Ashli Babbitt shooting. There is extensive video. The events are *HIGHLY* suspect - major red flags all over. It would be huge ratings. But... nothing? Sorry, it doesn't add up.
I am *NOT* saying this video is in any way authoritative. BUT it is persuasive enough at poking holes in the official narrative about what happened. Watch it even for devil's advocate value. It will get you thinking.🔻
This is more professionally done and is pretty persuasive. The entire Ashli Babbitt shooting, as well as the undeniable cover-up of the shooter and more Capitol Riots footage, stinks just to put it plainly.🔻

I knew my school district @chappaqua_csd was up tp shady business when my kids told me about "Unity" day. Today they told me it was Critical Race Theory & LGBTQ w/ radicals on a Zoom call. 'Worst day ever' both kids said. This is racially divisive nonsense. You suck, Westchester.

'White privilege' is a racist myth created by neomarxists to sow racial division. You all know this. So why are you teaching it?

Stacey Abrams should not be allowed to tell people Republicans are trying to pass "voter suppression" laws & Jim Crow 2.0. That's according to Big Tech's logic.

It undermines faith in our elections, remember? It also happens to be a giant lie. Where are the fact checkers?
"When Georgia became one of the first states in the nation to demand a photo ID at the ballot box, both sides served up dire predictions. Opponents labeled it a Jim Crow-era tactic... Turnout among black and Hispanic voters increased from 2006 to 2010..."

"Strict ID laws have no significant negative effect on registration or turnout, overall or for any subgroup defined by age, gender, race, or party affiliation"...
