Updates on the deeply flawed CDC mask study, the Grand Jury starts, the J&J vax and Germany, and Santa Clara County, CA mandates
Is there anyone who even knows the field that studies the dynamics of masking?
The CDC infographic is a lesson in how to propagate a falsehood. It’s graphic simplicity conveys an apparent obvious confirmation, even though it is based on a bad study and contradicts other available information. And because it comes from an ‘official source’, it gets propagated and amplified, drawing out confirmation bias in those that accepted the preceding falsehoods.
The average person, even those that have training to be able to dissect this, does not look deeper. Like a newspaper headline, but all the more influential because it is in graphic form, the infographic can propagate the continued message of the benefits of masking. The underlying belief is that the CDC would never do bad science, their people would never propagate misleading information, and they are looking out for the interests of the public.
The lie does have some deftness to it: as demonstrated by Prasad, it requires one to have the ability and persipacity to dig a bit deeper to see the blatant flaws. Packaged in official-ness and wearing the robe of science, it sidesteps the critical thinking abilities of most. Even understanding what Prasad says in his video critique requires depth and persistence—which most will not engage with.
This is an excellent example of the kind of construct upon which the false narrative is built. I think this is the thing that needs to be deconstructed in order for the unconvinced in the public to ask more questions and challenge their beliefs. In my experience, all it takes is a deconstruction of one of these examples, but with a fair amount of depth. I’ve had decent success with skeptical friends when I dive into one of these with them. In order to do it with integrity, we have to be knowledgeable and do our homework, so that when questions come up (as they will), we have references and well-founded critique to point to. Necessarily, this has to be done in a patient and compassionate manner—we are, after all, stirring the pot of cognitive dissonance.
My 2 cents…
Well, from the data.. 147 committed suicide vs 13 read the expiry date,
 182 committed suicide vs 28 read the expiry date meaning; The proof is in the pudding!
The chart here seems to show that being vaccinated reduces the case rate in Santa Clara County:
Jenny S Lam can’t identify one specific piece of information that was relied upon for Santa Clara health policy, not a single one, not even a Cdc, Fda, Nih website.
What town bylaws have to change to make health commissioner an elected office (or is it)?
Steve : I agree with you re: Prasad being willing to criticize a number of these flawed studies promulgated by CDC and others, as a good thing. He on the other hand, refuses to aknowledge the data on Ivermectin staring him in the face, as you have pointed out. He also took it upon himself to critique the Rogan interviews with Drs Malone and McCullough in a piece on "Unherd", a different platform. There, he basically doesn't really come up with any valid things to criticize Malone and McCullough for, defines no "misinformation", and tiptoes around it just like an academic with one eye on his employer, The University of California, who is bound to censure and censor him for even the comments he has made thus far. I am surprised it hasn't happened yet. He mentions Malone's concern re neoplasia induced by the inocula, and characterizes it as "fearmongering"; but this is in light of the DOD data now coming out, so I think Prasad is wrong to question Malone's right to be concerned and speak about it. There was no misinformation espoused in the Rogan interviews, and Prasad just confirms that.- M R Weiss, MD
If you want a good review of some actual science on masks, this link is one of the best: https://rumble.com/veb9ep-discerning-truth-covid-19-part-2.html it is over an hour long but very insightful and gives a good foundation. It was too true for youtube so is now on rumble.
Didn't they tell us that wearing a mask is to protect other people? If a mask protects the wearer, no need in mask mandates. Problem solved!
They can't even follow their own logic.
There were a lot of firefighters at the first rally at the Capitol (Sacramento) and they all talked about the number of heart attack calls since fuccination started. Yeah, it's a word, google it!
Also, what's now with Gates funding vaccines for HIV? Can you imagine the breakthroughs for that? https://www.news24.com/health24/medical/hiv-aids/news/new-hiv-variant-found-in-the-netherlands-progresses-to-aids-faster-but-responsive-to-treatment-20220207-2
Steve, I am loving your substack! Precise and great info! Thank you!!
STEVE - I keep trying to figure out ways to find out the true number of heart issues since hospitals are not forthcoming and can't be FOIA'd. I thought maybe of trying to schmooze ambulance drivers but that is tricky to do across the country reliably.
However - would it be possible to FOIA fire departments across the country since they are responsible for responding to 911 calls?
Is this an effort that could be undertaken by volunteers across the country????
THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!!! Especially for the March, that was so inspiring!!
Hello Steve, are you interested or have the resources to look at this Eric Topol analysis of the UK data? Numbers look very different than the previous ones. https://erictopol.substack.com/p/a-shot-in-the-dark
As for those that got the J&J vax in Germany - since January 15th they are not considered fully vaccinated anymore, and are recommended to get a booster with an mRNA vaccine, although rules differ in the different states. You need to be fully vaxxed to enter restaurants. This rule also applied to non essential stores but those have started to be abolished.
As for Germany in general - having grown up there and following what's going on there - they have some of the most restrictive rules but there is also a big opposition. Lots of demonstrations and so called "walks", especially on Mondays, now every week in over 2000 cities big and small. Some great opposition voices, as the independent journalist Boris Reitschuster with huge followings. So, not all is bad. It seems, countries that have the strictest measures (see Canada and Austria) also have the most people waking up.
Sad to hear about Germany.
When will the next episode of the Grand Jury be released? I hope you will continue posting them in your newsletters. World leaders are probably 💩 in their pants right now. This action may not have any teeth right now but its a great 0lace to start a real action against these evil beings.
