Mandatory Face Masks in Public
Posted by: Jennifer ()
Date: June 28, 2020 06:44PM

This morning I turned on the talking heads Sunday Shows and the first thing I saw was some Host asking some politician - should there be mandatory face masks in public? Meaning all of America. That was shocking.

And Joe Biden has said that if he's elected, he would make mask wearing mandatory in America, by Executive Order if need be.

Biden says he would make wearing face masks mandatory for Americans amid coronavirus pandemic

[www.cnn.com]

(CNN)Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden said if elected president, he would make wearing a face covering in public compulsory, furthering himself on the issue from President Donald Trump who has stressed that masks are voluntary and has flouted public health recommendations.

"The one thing we do know is these masks make a gigantic difference. I would insist that everybody out in public be wearing that mask. Anyone to reopen would have to make sure that they walked into a business that had masks," Biden told CNN's affiliate in Pittsburgh, KDKA, while wearing a black mask.

Pressed if he'd use federal power to mandate wearing a mask in public, Biden responded, "Yes, I would. From an executive standpoint, yes I would."

Asked again if that meant he would "in effect" mandate mask wearing, Biden said, "I would do everything possible to make it required that people had to wear masks in public."


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone "should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public" to reduce transmission and slow the spread of the coronavirus, which is highly contagious.

At least 16 states and the District of Columbia have mandates on wearing cloth face masks in public, but masks have become a political flash point as some argue the requirement infringes upon their civil liberties.

There are no mask mandates...


They are all illegal for multiple reasons and do not need to be followed.

Executive order is invalid

Dumbass biden cannot
Order people to wear a mask
Any more than a governor

And there are always exemptions to local orders or ordinances

The worst that can happen is us needing to debate or litigate an employer or business firing you or not allowing entry. Police will either support you or will not. Case by case

It's Sickening how hard these ignorant lying lunatics are pushing masks now

Darn, I just saw this! We are doomed ...

The more tyrannical the politician, the more popular they are eye rolling smiley If you run on 'everybody has to wear face masks all the time,' you're sure to be elected president. Bizarro World.

New Yahoo News/YouGov coronavirus poll: Two-thirds of Americans say masks should be mandatory, siding with Biden over Trump

[news.yahoo.com]

Joe Biden says that if he were president, he would require people to wear masks in public to slow the spread of COVID-19.

As coronavirus case counts soar in 30 states and hit record levels nationally, a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll shows that two-thirds of Americans now share Biden’s position — even as Republicans, and President Trump, continue to oppose it.

The survey, which was conducted June 24 and 25, before Biden made his position known, found that a full 65 percent of Americans now agree that masking up in public should be mandatory. That’s 10 percentage points higher than the number of Americans (55 percent) who said in a May 22 Yahoo News/YouGov poll that the government should require “social distancing measures such as wearing masks in stores.”

Yet support for mandatory mask measures — which one study estimates have already prevented as many as 450,000 COVID-19 cases in the states that have enacted them — breaks sharply along partisan lines. While 86 percent of Democrats and 65 percent of independents back the idea, most Republicans (54 percent) oppose it. Among those who intend to vote for Trump in November, the number who say masks should not be mandatory is even higher: 63 percent.

Sixteen states currently recommend, but do not require, that residents wear masks in public. In those states — including Texas and Arizona — new coronavirus cases have risen by 84 percent over the last two weeks, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer analysis. In the 11 states that mandate wearing masks in public — including New York, Illinois and Michigan — new cases have fallen by 25 percent over the last two weeks.

The political divide over a nonpartisan public health precaution is clearly shaping personal behavior. Republicans (31 percent) are now half as likely as Democrats (64 percent) to say they “always” wear masks when leaving home — and six times as likely (18 percent vs. 3 percent) to say they “never” wear them. Likewise, just 41 percent of Republicans say they always practice social distancing in public, compared with 63 percent of Democrats. And while the vast majority of Democrats (87 percent) and independents (66 percent) think people without COVID-19 symptoms should still be “staying home as much as possible,” most Republicans (53 percent) disagree, arguing that they ought to be “resuming their normal activities” instead. Most Republicans (53 percent) also think it’s safe for presidential candidates to resume holding rallies.

In fact, a majority of those who intend to vote for Trump (55 percent) say states where coronavirus cases are increasing “significantly” should not reimplement stay-at-home orders to prevent the virus from spreading; 39 percent of Trump voters even say they would not comply with such an order were it enacted.

Most Americans, however, disagree, with a full 73 percent supporting renewed stay-at-home orders in states with significant spread. A similar number have started to blame this month’s resurgence of COVID-19 across the South and West on lax personal behavior, with 70 percent agreeing that “the virus is spreading more because people are taking fewer precautions (such as staying six feet apart and wearing masks)” and only 30 percent buying Trump’s erroneous argument that the virus isn’t spreading more and we’re simply finding more cases because we’re testing more people.

Yes, but unfortunately, when you're dealing with 'the other side', there's a double standard, "The Truth" and "The Facts" mean nothing to them, and nothing sticks to them...

The worst part is how many are Sheeple/Statists/True Believers. Like 80%.

Actually, I just read a lot of the Comments from the Yahoo article and they were all against wearing masks and didn't believe the poll numbers, either, so now I'm thinking those polls are skewed.

It was Pelosi that I saw on the Sunday show this morning saying that Masks should be Mandatory - of course.

"Real men wear masks??"

What the hell is wrong with these people?

never occurs to them that all the social distancing and mask-wearing that they're already doing is not working?

Nah.

if anyone anywhere is out having fun, that's the reason "it's spreading"
THE NONEXISTENT IT.
WHAT A FARCE.

There is No Virus, but the best way to get people to bend to your will is to make them feel like it’s within their best interests to do so. We are being Conditioned by our Media and our so-called Leaders to cast aside Critical Thinking and our own Intelligence to accept whatever narrative they throw down the pipeline at us. Meanwhile, the people who profit off Chaos and Destruction are rubbing their hands. 1:50 MM


I'm currently working on a Video about Normalizing Power, BioPower and BioSecurity and here's a preview...

Scientific Knowledge cannot be divorced from Power and we can make a distinction between 2 kinds of Power - Repressive Power and Normalizing Power.

Repressive Power forces us to do what we don’t want to do.

Normalizing Power, on the other hand, makes us want to do what we have to do anyway. It turns us into people who automatically by their own will do what Society wishes them to do.

Normalizing Power is the Power that determines what we see is Normal and Brainwashes us to Trust Doctors and believe in the Contagion Myth based on their Germ Theory of Disease.

Normalizing Power constructs our view of the World and of ourselves. In that way, it shapes our Beliefs, our Desires and our Decisions, especially about our Health and What to Eat, and at the same time giving us the idea that these are our own Beliefs, Desires and Decisions that nobody has forced upon us.

In contrast to Repressive Power, which is often focused in very specific Institutions and Individuals - the Police, the Army, the Judges, the Bosses, the Politicians; Normalizing Power is everywhere - the Family, the School, the University, the Hospital, the Psychiatric Clinic and even the Commercial Break on Television, which tells us there’s a Global Pandemic, so Wear your Mask, practice Social Distancing and stay Locked Down until we say it’s OK and don’t forget that when you get Sick, Ask your Doctor and if you want to know more about this Drug, Ask your Doctor.

In 2003, the Italian Philosopher Giorgio Agamben wrote “State of Exception” where he investigated the increase of Power by Governments which they employ in supposed times of crisis. Within a State of Emergency, Agamben refers to the State of Exception, where Constitutional Rights can be diminished, superseded and rejected in the process of claiming this Extension of Power by a Government.

In 2013, French Health Historian Patrick Zylberman wrote “Tempêtes microbiennes” translated as “Microbial Storms” that described the process by which Health Security was becoming an essential part of state and international political strategies.

In 2020, Giorgio Agamben also wrote “Biosecurity and Politics” where he, once again, investigates how the suspension of laws within a State of Emergency or Crisis can become a prolonged state of being.

The French Historian and Philosopher Michel Foucault refers to "Biopower" as power over bios (life) – power over populations.

Biopower is a technology which appeared in the late eighteenth century for managing populations.

Biopower is about managing the births, deaths, reproduction and illnesses of a population.

Biopower primarily rests on norms which are internalized by people, rather than external force.

Biopower has killed more people than any other form of power before it.

Unfortunately, Michel Foucault, Patrick Zylberman and Giorgio Agamben are all classic examples of people who do NOT know the Truth or are Missing the Most Important Piece of the Puzzle and that’s the Raw Food - Cooked Food Perspective and, as a result, are clueless when it comes to analyzing what’s really going on.

Rethinking Face Masks ...

Mesh-mask man goes to Walmart to protest Florida face mask law

[nypost.com]

A man paraded a mesh mask at a Walmart in Tampa, Florida, as a protest against his county's “Hitler-type ruling.” He filmed the video outside the store after no one stopped to correct his face mask, which is normally worn for playing paintball or dirt-biking. "It’s not about safety,” Florida man Russ Ward claimed. “It’s about compliance, I was a good little sheep.” As across the US and in Florida, the Hillsborough County Emergency Policy Group voted to make face masks mandatory inside businesses.

**********

That's a great idea to wear a mesh face mask. There are some on Etsy, but I don't like spending so much money - over $15 - on a face mask -

[www.etsy.com]

**********

But this is a great idea - silver or copper face mask that does actually filter out toxins - this could do double duty on the plane if they really are spraying chemicals at you like that article said.

[tru47.com]

********

I had a brilliant idea to make a flimsy gauze bandana that would be open at the bottom so very breathable. So I took some cheesecloth to try it out and I couldn't even breathe properly through the cheesecloth! How do people actually breathe through the masks they wear for hours? And outside in 90 degree weather! And Children! This is beyond crazy! Child abuse!

Dr. Buttar agrees with me -

"It's unethical & unconstitutional to force healthy citizens to abide by measures that can result in physical & emotional harm & that affect their ability to participate in society without discrimination."

[twitter.com]

**********

Look at this one -

[twitter.com]

Youth baseball in our city has resumed. A team was unwilling to wear masks & the league said they could not play. Seriously? They’re trying to make young boys wear masks when they play baseball? That team should get a win for standing up to the insanity! Instead, they got a loss.

**********

This Draconian Mandatory Mask Wearing Issue should be the biggest Coronavirus Story now!

Children! Outside! Playing! In 90 degree heat!

Look at this wonderful 'doctor' in India!

If a store is going to force it I will push it as hard as I can or not go there.

Aren't you in Virginia there's exceptions written right into it they act like it law but it's not

Oh, yes, I am in Virginia. I'm compelled to wear a mask because Governor Blackface Northam decreed that everybody has to wear a mask inside a public place.

I didn't know about that Exceptions in the local Ordinance. I never read the Ordinance or the Mandate - just news stories. You're very informed or you do your research about legal matters. That's great.

Thanks!
