Facts About Masks: Helpful or Hoax?

Facts About Masks: Helpful or Hoax?


When I’m out and about, I don’t see many “face-coverings”, I see people wearing face masks – and looking very disapprovingly at those of us who refuse to conform to the latest diktat from Government on the Wuhan virus.  

We’ve already noted that priests – including the Archbishop of Glasgow – are uncritically accepting the Government rule mandating the wearing of masks/coverings on public transport and in shops/places where social distancing cannot be observed – e.g. churches.  Do any of them check out the facts as some, at least of the laity is doing, on blogs such as this?  Clearly not. The wholly secular, culturally Marxist Government says it, so it must be true. Gimme strength! 

Here’s a commentator from the YouTube platform publishing the above video…

This is all playing out, just as planned. Few will know the truth and even fewer will actually try to do anything about it. Just as expected.  

Why?  Why are the majority of people so obedient, so compliant?  Are they genuinely unaware of what is really going on here, ignorant of the “bigger picture”?

    I have been out and about and, from my perspective, those wearing masks are very much in the minority. I don’t wear one and I have not received any criticism – or judgmental glances – from anyone who is wearing one. The masks are simply a temporary measure and will be obsolete within a few weeks-to-months.

    Slightly off-topic, but people are even less inclined to adhere to the social distancing requirements.

    In short, nobody really seems to care, despite your comment that people are “so obedient, so compliant.”

      My experience of people wearing masks is the oppostie to yours, almost everyone I see is wearing one, though, like you, I don’t get any disapproving looks or comments for not complying. I have invented a new crime in respect to masks, it’s called ‘Obstruction of injustice’!

      Where I live, everybody is wearing them even small kids! It’s really unbelievable. I also see the same social distancing fanaticism, so I think maybe you are out during quiet times of the day, or else you are very lucky to live on some Covid-19-free oasis somewhere, LOL!

    What I’m finding noticeable, to my great surprise (and relief) is that the staff in shops are not saying anything to those of us walking into their shop(s) without a face-covering. Not a word. I’ve now been in so many shops that I think it can only be that they’ve been told not to confront or challenge anyone not wearing a mask/face-covering. Here’s hoping because my resolve remains as firm as ever that I will never wear anything I don’t want to wear, just because the Government (any Government) thinks it can tell me what to wear, if you get my drift.

    I have been aware, however. of some disapproving looks and a friend told me that, on one occasion a lady (I use the term very loosely) made a big deal of shaking her head in my direction. If I’d seen that, I’d have been tempted to mimic her and say “Brrrh, it IS nippy out today, isn’t it?” (in my best English accent) 😀

    Matt Hancock (Health Secretary in Westminster) says face masks are here for the foreseeable future. I bet he wishes he could say the same about himself – rumour has it that he’s for the chop next time there’s a cabinet reshuffle. Roll on…

      I think the shops have taken this approach because they don’t want to lose business. Besides that, the government has advised that they shouldn’t confront anyone who refuses to wear a face mask. I’ve been in and out of umpteen shops and no one has bothered. What bothers me though is that far too many are compliant with this evil.

        Not all staff in shops wear masks, in my experience, and in England they are not required to do so (presume it’s the same up here).

        The whole thing is a nonsense, and yes, it’s the unquestioning obedience which really gets to me. Stupid is, as stupid does, as the (rather stupid) saying goes 😀

        I too have seen staff in shops not wearing masks. For all I have seen people wearing face diapers while walking along streets, not everyone does.

        I do think much of wearing 3 way visor hat any more than a mask.


        I wonder if I should get a burka, or, would a balaclava be better. How much attention would I get then?

    I really don’t care what the WHO, CDC, Anthony Fauci or any other “expert” says about masks. As far as I’m concerned they are all charlatans of the Neil Ferguson class, being well-paid to mouth the party line – which, at one level, is the Bill Gates/Big Pharma party line (vaccines and enormous profits), and at a deeper level, the Luciferian New World Order line (another giant step towards total control of everything we do). There’s no “science” going on amongst these stooges, just like there’s no science going on amongst the climate change crowd. It’s all been perverted to serve an agenda, a perversion disguised with white lab coats and fake data. And just like Big Brother in 1984, the party line keeps contradicting itself from week to week, but no acknowledgment of those mistakes ever appears.

    However, President Trump, God bless him, recently published a list of all of Fauci’s mistakes!

    As to why the majority of people are so compliant, I think it’s due to fear, ignorance, false confidence in “experts,” and maybe downright laziness to look up the truth. Couch potato syndrome + too much time spent in academia + threats to job security = obedience. I do think that majority is rapidly shrinking, but I have no way of knowing exactly how much or how quickly.

    I enjoyed Mr. Bet-David’s presentation, and I wish I had half his energy!

      Trump is just as complicit as the rest. He has just named former GSK pharma executive, Moncef Slaoui, as his lead henchman for “Operation Warp Speed.”

      Read the linked article, below


      I’m still undecided about him.

      As an aside, I see that Denmark has just passed a mandatory vaccine law. Scary stuff. I wonder when Sturgeon will follow suit.

      July 17, 2020 at 3:41 pm
      • Athanasius


        Like you, I believe there are goods and bads about Trump’s Administration, he’s not a believing informed Catholic after all. We’re faced here with a lesser of evils really.

        The real question is whether Trump will make any vaccine mandatory. I very much doubt that he will. What will happen though, assuming he gets his vaccine, is put an end to the global plan for totalitarian rule without end. They won’t be able to continue with the lie if Trump has a vaccine available, so it might work against Gates and the other globalists.

        Thank you for replying.

        I’m really undecided but probably leaning towards him being a fraud. He confirmed himself virulently anti-vaccine during his election campaign. I seem to remember him making comments about his son (Barron) developing some sort of mental handicap due to vaccination.

        Then again, I’m also of the opinion that; since Kennedy, whoever becomes President will likely be aware that whistles there are to blow at the risk of getting their heads shot off.

        He’s talked a good game so far and his tweeting is admirable. Now, we will finally find out if he’s the real deal or just controlled opposition.

        I did make mention of this in my previous comment but some of it was cut post-production by the moderator for some reason. Apologies if I broke the blog rules 🤷‍♂️

    I’d love to know what Mr. Bet-David would say about this: the skyrocketing case numbers in Florida have been discovered to be caused by a “test” that produces 100% positive results for the virus!


    This is not news to those of us who have found out that these “tests” don’t actually test for a disease, since no disease has ever been properly isolated, but perhaps it will wake up some of the previously slumbering compliant.

    Memo to the slumbering compliant: the tests being used in Florida are not unique to Florida. In other words, wherever these same tests are being administered in large numbers across the nation, surging case numbers will be the result. Second sleight-of hand…er…second wave….another attack on Trump….another attack on the economy…more unemployment and misery…and then what?

    As for Billy’s comment that masks are just a temporary measure, I congratulate him on his impervious optimism. Or was that impervious naivete?

    July 15, 2020 at 10:46 pm
    • Athanasius


      We know scientifically that this virus does not survive hot temperatures, yet they’re pushing the line that numbers are soaring in some of the hottest places on the planet. And still the people listen and obey them as though their every word were divinely infallible. Their words are actually demonically invented!

    Peter Hitchens is refusing to wear a mask – he’s the one and only independent thinker in this debacle, in the whole of the UK

    July 15, 2020 at 11:44 pm
    • Athanasius


      He is indeed a man of common sense, and brave with it. He keeps coming up with little nuggets of information, such as the WHO changing its mind on face masks due to political pressure. I wonder who put political pressure on the WHO and why? The more we hear from official and objective sources the more we know for certain that this crisis has been fabricated by evil people in high places.

        This country had many Peter Hitchens at one time, critical thinkers who would question the main media. The UK has been a total pushover for the Globalists during this “Scamdemic” There was a time when the British had a back-bone,, there would have been walkouts by employees and civil disobedience, powerful Unions would have flexed their muscles (let’s not go down the road of powerful Unions though) but you get my drift. There would be no Mandatory Masks in shops soon to be implemented in the England, already in Scotland, as the Government would have known the British people would not submit.


        Nicola and Boris are striding ahead of the rest of the planet towards mass Vaccinations, a cashless society, health passports if you wish to travel and total control of the populous. Bill and Melinda Gates must be very pleased with them. What a joke the people of the UK must appear to others around the globe, total surrender to the Globalists!

        Good news is that the the Judy Mikovits “Plandemic” video hit ONE BILLION Views Worldwide. In case anyone on CTS hasn’t seen the video I have put it on a link here, just scan down half way and you can view it.

        As good as that news is about rolling back mask mandates county by county (Healthy America’s initiative – I checked out their website yesterday, it is rather limited so far), they are responding to an effect rather than the cause.

        The cause of this so-called second wave is that the tests, which are producing these case numbers, are fraudulent. Early on, thanks to Dr. Andrew Kaufman’s video (which I believe you posted), we knew that these tests generate 80% false positives. Not surprising, since they don’t actually test for a disease.

        Now, however, as I posted yesterday on the mask thread, the scandal has broken in Florida, where tests state-wide produce 100% positives!

        So congratulations to Healthy America, but we need another organization called “Truth in Testing,” or some such name.

        (And on a supernatural level, the ultimate cause of this scam-demic is nothing else but evil in the hearts of men: hubris and lust for power and wealth)

    RCA Victor

    You are absolutely right in replying that not having to wearing Masks is responding to the effect and not the cause.

    Apart from reading about Serbia, who are actually protesting against the cause “Mandatory Lockdown” I have not seen this response of this scale anywhere else.


    Incidentally, I note Serbia’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabic was invited to Bilderberg meeting in June this year.


    Anyone still confused about what is going on should watch the link below where the Globalist admit “Covid19” is all about a one World Government.


    I think what we are sadly lacking here in the UK and elsewhere are Leaders, with a well structured plan including Doctors, Lawyers, unbiased Media etc to challenge the Lockdown as publicly as possible so the general population “maybe” will see the light, otherwise we are heading for total control with brakes off.

    July 16, 2020 at 5:05 pm
    • editor


      Your final paragraph brought to mind the court case being brought by some lawyers in England, challenging the legitimacy of the lockdown – is there any update on that?

      July 16, 2020 at 10:16 pm
      • francescomarta


        The man in question, Simon Dolan failed in his attempt at challenging the Government over the Lockdown, but has launched an appeal. See link below


        Other ideas could be a Rosary Crusade online by word of mouth/social media, a well organized World conference of Virologists, Lawyers who will challenge the “WHO” and Government with peaceful protests larger than in Serbia, would put a spanner in the works.

        That’s the best way forward I think and that is just for ‘starters,’ but I can’t see this happening at this moment.

      Yes, this demonstrates further that the Covid-19 crisis has been very well planned over a long period of time and Boris Johnson is up to his neck in the conspiracy to introduce the totalitarian NWO, there is no doubt in my mind now.

      As for those new powers, I briefly surveyed some of the 233 comments below the article – most of them are quite sarcastic. Too bad the sarcasm doesn’t reach the point of activism.

        I’ve only heard the first 6 minutes – will watch later or tomorrow, but was put off at 3 minutes or so by reference to humans’ “strong evolutionary survival mechanism” – anyway, it’s an interesting take on the subject, so I will watch it through asap.

        I meant to point out the evolutionary part but forgot to. I felt it was worth watching it for the overall message of the video in spite of the aberration.

        I hope Anthony is recovering from his op. My youngest daughter had a scoliosis correction (part of her lower spine was pressing on the spinal cord) in her early teenage years. The op took 6 hours as they had to break her spine and then a few levels fused but it was a success, thanks be to God! I pray Anthony will be home soon.

      Dear Editor,
      You have some wonderful sleuths on here. Colombo would be proud!
      Michaela above has highlighted some good stuff. The problem is, like the majority of realists websites, we are preaching to the converted. If someone could come up with a method to get in among the sheep to point them to the truth, it would be great.
      I notice Michaela mentioned the month of November above.
      Now I wish I could remember remember wots ‘appening come November! ! !.
      Could it have anything to do with an election?

        I’ve been hearing from readers (including one of the sometime bloggers here) that there are slips being passed around Glasgow with a message to the effect that anyone who wishes to check out the truth about Covid-19 / lockdown etc. should visit https://catholictruthblog.com/ – so don’t be so cynical!

        All readers and bloggers who wish to do the same, including your good self, Patrick, be assured that there is no copyright infringement about which to worry 😀

        RCA Victor,


        The people giving out the slips tell me they’ve had a very positive reception. They don’t stand and hand out but use them as the previous “leaflet” – just when in conversation with people or when an opportunity arises through the mask-wearing scenario. Apparently most people have been very surprised – there is just no challenge to any of this here in Scotland, so my guess is that they are taken aback even to know there is any objection at all. Incredible.

        I spent time with a niece in her home town a few days ago and accompanied her to the local shopping centre, where I tried my hand at it and, again, found people very willing to take a slip. Even one gentleman, who was initially resistant, took one in the end – he was a really nice person, and I’d say that even if he hadn’t taken one, in the end 😀

      That is a superb article. Very long, but worth reading right through. “So many nails on heads” – to say the least.

      Highly recommended reading folks.

      Out and about today I’ve been astounded to see people wearing masks in the street! More and more I’m liking the daft saying “stupid is, as stupid does” – because it fits just about everything that we’re witnessing these days.

        And have you seen the slogans on various church signs that say something like “Love your neighbor = wear a mask”?

        In other words, don’t love your neighbor by telling them the truth – love them by supporting and reinforcing their fears, and love them by not rocking the Communist boat.

        What a pathetic, despicable surrender to insanity.

        No, not seen those signs but it’s the sort of thing people say – not wearing a mask means you don’t care about other people, blah blah. My reply is that I have no obligation to worry about anybody else’s health. What would these nuts think if they went to their GP with an ailment and he/she said they would prescribe a medicine that was no use to them but would help others from getting ill… would that be OK? DUH!

        Anyway, a sign of hope, at last, albeit from south of the border. Some people ARE protesting the mask-wearing mandate… God bless their English roses!

    We had an incredible sermon this morning about Hegelian dialectics, adopted by Marx and Saul Alinsky for the overthrow of the West.: thesis – anti-thesis ==> synthesis (the process, according to the Satanists, by which history progresses).\

    As applied to this scamdemic, I suppose it would go something like this:

    Pandemic (thesis) – lockdown (antithesis) ==> more global government (synthesis) (or, as they’re calling for, “The Great Reset,” or, “stakeholder capitalism.”)

    Or, to go back a bit further:

    Globalists losing control of the narrative (thesis) – scamdemic (antithesis) ==> lockdown and control (synthesis).

    Translation: more global government and less national sovereignty; tighter surveillance and restriction of citizens and their movements; implementation of the “green” agenda (sustainability), which is nothing more than ever higher crushing tax burdens; further destruction of the middle class; more intense attacks on the Catholic Church via the LGBT mob; universal vaccination and planned sterility to reduce the world’s population;

    I looked up “stakeholder capitalism,” which was harped upon by the NWO zombies in one of the videos posted by Francescomarta.

    Here is a naive definition, from “Investopedia”:

    “Stakeholder capitalism is a system in which corporations are oriented to serve the interests of all their stakeholders. Among the key stakeholders are customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders and local communities. Under this system, a company’s purpose is to create long-term value and not to maximize profits and enhance shareholder value at the cost of other stakeholder groups.”

    Sounds eminently fair and just, doesn’t it. Well, here’s the real definition, from the World Economic Forum, one of the more currently influential and powerful NWO think tanks:

    “In particular, these transformations [“technological, environmental, geopolitical, and socioeconomic transformations of the past two decades”] are making environmental, social, governance, and data stewardship (ESG&D) considerations increasingly important to companies’ financial performance and resilience. This broad change is eroding the traditional distinction between a shareholder-primacy model (which focuses on financial and operational costs and benefits) and a stakeholder-driven model (focused on environmental and social risks and opportunities).

    Issues that were previously considered secondary for CEOs and boards – matters once handled by companies’ stakeholder-relations, philanthropy, and information-technology departments – have become important determinants of firms’ capacity to create and sustain economic value. For example, climate change, water management, and other aspects of environmental stewardship are increasingly recognized as bottom-line issues in a world where technology, regulation, and other features of the operating environment can change quickly.”

    Translation: corporate profits, and therefore their boards and policies, must serve the sustainability agenda: high-tech surveillance and control of citizens, social justice intersectionality (Marxist LGBT insanity/destruction of the nuclear family, suppression of speech via hate crime laws, etc.), environmental extremism (climate change “emergencies”). The most immediately chilling of these is “water managment,” implying some future rationing of water.

    In short, the “stakeholders” are the ruling elite and obedience to their depraved agenda.

    The government advice re face masks is wholly useless and imprecise. It offers no specific guidance, standard or specification regarding the masks.

    In my work, I sometimes specify equipment for a specific task and you really have to give details – otherwise you are just wasting your time.

    In a worthwhile specification of a face mask, I would expect details such as: how does it work?, what size of particle the mask must eliminate?, what air flow should it allow?, should it cover the eyes? what is it to be made of, and how should it be secured on the user?

    Just saying “face coverings” means the Government advice will be achieving little or nothing worthwhile. One person might wear an effective laboratory mask, someone else might use fishnet-tights material to make a mask and someone else a Count Dracula Halloween mask.

    They all meet the terminology but are obviously laughing at one another. In a real threat, they would not all perform the same.

    The masks are definitely part of the dog and pony show surrounding the virus.

    Here’s a very interesting article on face-masks from The American Thinker. The following extract completely debunks the theory that they are of any use whatsoever in the general population, at this time…

    Once upon a time, I was a U.S. Army surgical technician. Part of my training was in face mask hygiene and sterile technique. In 1966, in an evacuation hospital in Korea, I would do a rotation in intensive care dealing with infectious disease cases. Later, in college, I majored in biology, which included microbiology. Because of this background, I view the world differently from how most do as it pertains to the transmission of disease. So imagine my shock when I went grocery shopping after this viral panic hit. Here were people with face masks and nitrile gloves — their hands all over their face masks, pulling them up and down, rubbing their eyes. They played with their smartphones, touched everything in the store, and acted as if they came from the planet Krypton. Holy moly! This store was full of potential Typhoid Marys.

    So now, here we are months later. Has anything changed with these folks? No. Even more unsettling, the experts appear to be grasping at straws, adding more confusion to an already confused populace. One of those straws: face masks.
