Fauci says it might be time to mandate masks as Covid-19 surges across US Dr. Anthony Fauci has been reluctant to support a federal mask mandate. “A national mandate probably would not work,” he said on Sept 15 during a news conference with Vermont Gov. Phil Scott. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has been urging Americans to use masks for months. “I have trust in the American people that if we put a strong emphasis on the importance of wearing masks, that we will come around and do that and get that percentage up above the relatively low percentage of people that are using masks,” Fauci said on July 21 on NPR’s Morning Edition. But he has said before that he doesn’t think a federal law would be the way to go. “I don’t like to be authoritarian from the federal government, but at the local level, if governors and others essentially mandate the use of masks when you have an outbreak, I think that would be very important,” Fauci told Alabama Sen. Doug Jones during a Facebook live event in July. Until now. “Well, if people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating it,” Fauci told CNN’s Erin Burnett Friday.
Delta has banned 460 anti-maskers In a new memo, Delta Air Lines says it has banned more than 400 people from flying for not following the airline’s mask policy. “As of this week, we’ve added 460 people to our no-fly list for refusing to comply with our mask requirement,” Delta CEO Ed Bastian said in a message to employees. In August, the airline said it had banned roughly 270 passengers since the outset of the pandemic. Delta ( ) began requiring that passengers wear masks on flights on May 4. All major airlines now mandate that passengers wear masks in the absence of any new regulations from the federal government. Airlines in June agreed to ban passengers from future flights for refusing to wear masks. But the airlines are not sharing information with one another about the passengers they have banned. So, for example, a passenger banned on Delta can still book a flight on American ( ) and vice versa. The airlines have defended the get-tough policy as important to protect the health and safety of both passengers and crew members. Earlier this month, the CDC said in new guidance that travel “increases your chances of getting and spreading” coronavirus. “CDC strongly recommends appropriate masks be worn by all passengers and by all personnel operating the conveyance while on public conveyances,” the guidance said.
New Hampshire restaurant shuts its doors rather than enforce mask mandate The owners of a New Hampshire restaurant have decided to close their doors rather than abide by a mask mandate. Joe Bodge and Dorene Heselton closed Roselynn Homemade Ice Cream Breakfast and Lunch in Epping, New Hampshire, on Sunday. A sign on their door now reads, “What Happened to Live Free or Die.” “I have decided, and I’ll be honest with you, the sheer volume of my customers and people supporting me believe the same thing — we can either exist in fear, and hope to not die, or we can live knowing eventually we’re all going to die,” Bodge told NBC News on Thursday. Bodge and Heselton said a customer reported them to the state for not wearing masks and not requiring their customers to wear masks. Bodge said he then received a call from the New Hampshire Office of the Attorney General, asking if he was not requiring masks in Roselynn. “I said, ‘Ma’am, as a matter of fact, you are correct.’ And there was a pause, and she said, ‘So you’re not denying it?’ And I said, ‘We are mask-free here,'” Bodge said.
Doctors vs. Doctors: Who’s Telling the Truth? There’s a civil war raging across the U.S. today, pitting medical doctors against other medical doctors. And it’s not because they are on opposite sides of the political spectrum. It’s because they are on opposite sides of the truth. This is not a new war, of course, as those of us in the Alternative Health media have covered these medical topics for many years now. The Wall Street Billionaires, many of them part of the Pharmaceutical Industry, control the corporate media giants to put forth a unified message they want the public to believe, that benefits the goals and purposes of Wall Street, not the general public. They fund most all of the top medical schools, and hire those with medical degrees from these schools and then parade them in front of the cameras to read the script that they write to determine public health policy. Doctors who actually care about the health of their patients and follow the truth no matter where it leads, and are on the front lines every day treating their patients, are quickly silenced, or labeled as “quacks” and censored. This is purely a business issue for the medical industry, and in recent years they are not even hiding the fact that a medical system that actually cures people is bad for business.
Questions of The Day!
Hello Robert, I currently use, Choose to be Healthy’s, Selenium, Chromium, & Silica. In relation to the Silica, my ultimate goal is balancing hormone levels. I recently came across a lecture on Diatomaceous Earth (Silicates in Human Health) and Borax for their health benefits in balancing hormones in both men & woman. In your opinion, would adding D.E & Borax be beneficial for hormone balance or is the CTBH Silica enough? In addition, I live a plant based Vegan lifestyle, with plenty of DIM (Diindolylmethane, Cruciferous veg like broccoli, kale, cauliflower), which is used specifically in supplement form for balancing estrogen levels. However, my last Thermography still shows high estrogen levels. Your thoughts on adding D.E and Borax please? As always, your guidance is greatly appreciated.
After watching “The Truth About Vaccines” Episode 10 last night, it occurred to me that I’ve not seen any such shows that are specifically for children. Do you know if anything like that exists? There is much propaganda targeted to children saying “vaccines are safe and effective” in cartoons, magazines, pamphlets and shows, but nothing that I’m aware of that tells children the truth that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.” Can you direct me to any such thing?
Wyoming mom becomes author with her first book, written, illustrated, and published by her This Wyoming mom decided it was time to share her story through a book, even though she hadn’t written one before. Have you ever considered if you could create your own business online from scratch? One Wyoming mom of two did exactly that. She wrote and published her first children’s book, and is now selling it around the world, online. “This is actually my first book, and I’m currently working on three other books, one is a collaboration with another advocate,” noted author Holly Miller. Even though Miller enjoyed taking art and writing classes in college, she is just now being established as an author and artist. However, that hasn’t limited her customers much, as she has sold books to people in all states except for eight. “And there’s been a really strong support internationally, so I’ve shipped a lot of books to Canada, Australia, as well as England, Ireland, and Kuwait,” mentioned Miller. But stardom and money weren’t her motivation for embarking on this journey, for her the topic hits a little closer to home. “Our daughter had an adverse reaction, so we did a lot of research and decided to have her be vaccine free, a decision that we didn’t come to lightly,” emphasized Miller. Although some would steer clear of controversial topics, this mom and author thought the importance of it outweighed the fear of criticism. Miller read from an excerpt of her children’s book: “Our parents have good reasons they chose what they did. Some of us were injured after one shot or a few. Some lost loved ones. Some parents trusted their gut and learned of the risks. Some found out about the poison and DNA contained in the shots. Once they were informed, they knew what to do, give your parents a hug and say thank you. They are working so hard protecting you. Always remember we cannot spread germs we do not have because we are not sick.”
South Korea continues flu vaccine after 48 deaths are deemed unconnected to the shot South Korea will continue use of its flu vaccine, ruling that the 48 deaths that have occurred were due to unrelated causes.Singapore temporarily ceased the use of two types of the vaccine as it continues to evaluate, Channel News Asia reported Sunday. That leaves two that are still being used, Reuters India reported. In South Korea, 20 initial autopsy reports indicated that 13 of the deaths were due to cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and other disorders not caused by the vaccine, Reuters reported. As of Saturday the death toll stood at 48. The country is in the midst of a government campaign to vaccinate about 30 million of the country’s 54 million inhabitants, Reuters said. Worldwide, countries are vaccinating against the flu in hopes of avoiding a double epidemic, given that flu season is approaching and coronavirus cases are rising. “After reviewing death cases so far, it is not the time to suspend a flu vaccination programme since vaccination is very crucial this year, considering … the COVID-19 outbreaks,” Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) director Jeong Eun-kyung told a briefing, according to Reuters.
Hour 2 – Special Guest Meryl Dorey
Back in 1994 we were feeling that the government and the medical community, in general, tended to exaggerate the safety and benefit profiles of vaccinations whilst downplaying their risks and true effectiveness.
For that reason, our group was formed with the express purpose of:
- promoting discussion about medically-referenced information on vaccine safety and effectiveness;
- lobbying to ensure that vaccinations are never made compulsory for Australian children; and
- supporting those who have chosen not to vaccinate or to vaccinate selectively.
From the beginning, we have operated as a volunteer-run community organisation. We used to be a membership and donation driven group whose only sources of funding were provided by our membership and sales of books, videos and DVDs in our web shop.
In 2009 however, an organisation was set up with the goal of forcing our organisation to close down. This group has filed dozens of complaints against us with various government departments and media outlets. They do not believe that freedom of speech or communication should be protected in Australia and want to close down the debate on this issue.
As a result of one of these complaints, the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) issued a public warning against the AVN. We fought against this warning and won our case in the NSW Supreme Court on the 24th of February, 2012. The HCCC were ordered to pay our costs and removed the warning. The Supreme Court stated that both the investigation and the warning were Ultra Vires (beyond their power) and their conduct of this investigation was illegal.

Coronavirus Vaccine: Why It’s Important to Know What’s in the Placebo Some researchers conducting clinical trials on a COVID-19 vaccine have not revealed to the public what the placebo contains, but they should. This is because the placebo ingredients influence how effective or harmful the active treatment, with which the placebo is compared, appears. Our new guideline published in PLOS Medicine remedies this problem by providing a template for reporting what’s in placebo controls. In some COVID-19 vaccine trials, participants in the control group (the group receiving a placebo) are injected with a saline solution. In other trials, they receive an actual treatment. For example, in the COVID-19 vaccine developed by the University of Oxford, the control group receives a meningitis and septicaemia vaccine as a placebo. The benefit of using an actual vaccine as the placebo control is that it will cause a similar reaction at the site of the injection as the COVID-19 vaccine, such as muscle pain and soreness. This prevents patients from knowing whether they are getting the placebo or the real treatment. The scientific term for hiding knowledge of who got what treatment is “blinding”. If patients know they are getting the real thing, they may expect to get better, and their expectations can make them get better a bit faster. And if they know they are getting the placebo, they could drop out of the trial because they know they aren’t getting the actual treatment. Adding an actual vaccine to the placebo control helps the trial remain blinded and so prevents bias arising from differing expectations.
34% of older adults in the US are prescribed potentially inappropriate drugs The prescription of potentially inappropriate medications to older adults is linked to increased hospitalizations, and it costs patients, on average, more than $450 per year, according to a new University at Buffalo study. The research, which sought to determine the impact of potentially inappropriate medications on health care utilization and costs in the United States, also found that more than 34% of adults age 65 and older were prescribed these problematic drugs. “Although efforts to de-prescribe have increased significantly over the last decade, potentially inappropriate medications continue to be prescribed at a high rate among older adults in the United States,” says David Jacobs, PharmD, PhD, lead investigator and assistant professor of pharmacy practice in the UB School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Collin Clark, PharmD, first author on the paper and clinical assistant professor in the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, adds, “The average age of the U.S. population is rising, and older adults account for a disproportionate amount of prescription medications. Harm to older adults caused by potentially inappropriate medications is a major public health challenge.”
