WASHINGTON, D.C., January 21, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Shortly after being sworn in as president, Joe Biden followed through on his promise to initiate a “100-day masking challenge” by signing an executive order mandating masks on all federal properties.
The order, titled, “Protecting the Federal Workforce and Requiring Mask-Wearing,” asserts the intention of the initiative is “to halt the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) by relying on the best available data and science-based public health measures,” which include “wearing masks when around others, physical distancing, and other related precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”
Thus, it requires that “on-duty or on-site Federal employees, on-site Federal contractors, and other individuals in Federal buildings and on Federal lands should all wear masks, maintain physical distance, and adhere to other public health measures, as provided in CDC guidelines.”
Though a president does not have the authority to impose mask mandates on cities, counties or states, this order does apply to post offices, Veterans Affairs facilities and national parks.
According to USA Today, Biden also “promised a mask mandate on flights, trains and buses for months, and he plans to make it a reality on Thursday.”
The mandate is issued amid a background of significant scientific data which contradicts its fundamental premise that masks provide a noteworthy benefit in preventing viral transmission.
Last June, CDC guidelines actually insisted, “DO NOT use facemasks. CDC does not recommend the use of facemasks for the general U.S. public to prevent the spread of 2019 nCoV.” This was the clear, general consensus of health officials including Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Indeed, in a June document recommending the use of masks, the WHO conceded, “At present, there is no direct evidence … on the effectiveness of universal masking of healthy people in the community to prevent infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.” As Peter Hitchens reports, the WHO was going to advise against the wearing of masks for the general public, but they adjusted their policy “due to political lobbying.”
For the next two years, state legislators will be the last line of defense against a radical, leftist ideology invading every aspect of our lives.
Our federal institutions - especially, the judiciary - utterly betrayed America and the Constitution in their dereliction of duty towards seeking the truth in the outcome of the 2020 election.
And now, with the Senate in the hands of the leftists, freedom-loving Americans must DEMAND that our state institutions, and every patriotic state legislator, do everything in his or her power to oppose the assaults on our Freedom, on Life, on Family, and on Faith which are sure to come from Washington, D.C. after January, 20th.
Please SIGN this petition and DEMAND that state legislators, in every state, PLEDGE to defend America from the tyranny of the Left.
January 6th, 2021 will be remembered by patriotic Americans, for generations to come, as a turning point.
January 6th will be remembered as conservative America's vote of no confidence in official institutions. Simultaneously a primordial cry for freedom and a tragic scene where the last vestiges of law and order succumbed under the reality of current events.
(After you have signed this petition, take a couple of minutes to personally contact your state legislators by email, Twitter, or by phone, using the Voter Voice tool provided to you by LifeSite.

Don't be mistaken: unlike so many politicians who are supposed to be on our side, the left almost always follows through with what they set out to do. So, yes, you can believe all of the predictions of impending doom for conservative causes.
Therefore, we must now DEMAND that our state legislators ACT to defend us from the federal government's future attempts to attack our freedoms, human life, the natural family, and our right to freely practise our faith.
And we, ourselves, must also be willing to strongly advocate for those freedoms, for life, for family and for our Faith.

Further reasons to doubt the effectiveness of masks include the CDC’s September acknowledgement that masks cannot be counted on to keep out the coronavirus when spending 15 minutes or longer within six feet of someone, or a May 2020 study published by CDC’s peer-reviewed journal Emerging Infectious Diseases which “did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility.”
Just hours after signing his executive order, the newly inaugurated president was spotted maskless on federal property, apparently falling short on his own “challenge.” It remains unclear why the new president needs to wear a mask at all after reportedly receiving both doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Dr. Simone Gold of American Frontline Doctors was very clear on this question last October. At the organization’s second summit, she affirmed, “The facts are not in dispute: masks are completely irrelevant to blocking the SARS-CoV-2 virus.”
Those who study this issue, she said, would “discover that prior to masks becoming political in March 2020, there was never even an attempt at a pretense that masks, let alone bandanas, stop a virus. It’s a complete fabrication. A virus is 1/1000 the size of a hair.”
Gold then cited the New England Journal of Medicine which acknowledged that “masks serve symbolic roles” and are thus merely “lucky charms that may help increase” a person’s “perceived sense of safety.”
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), an opthalmologist who himself tested positive for COVID-19 in March, warned in December, “If [Dr. Anthony] Fauci has his way, you’ll never give up on the mask … It’s all about submission. They want you to submit to their will, whether there’s any [valid] science” or not.
