February 19, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Masks “don’t work,” reveal a panel of doctors in LifeSiteNews’ recent “Unmasking COVID-19,” conference, who warned about how mask mandates are being used to bring about “Nazi-like” control of the populace.

As part of the LifeSiteNews unique event, Dr. Sheri TenpennyDr. Eric Nepute and Dr. Pam Popper formed a panel discussion dealing with the issues of masks and vaccines, in which they highlighted the errors in the mainstream narrative, which promotes the wearing of masks almost everywhere. 

Masks ‘don’t work’

“The only randomized control studies that have ever been done on masks show that they don’t work,” began Dr. Nepute. He referred to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s “noble lie,” in which Fauci “changed his tune,” from his March 2020 comments, where he downplayed the need and efficacy of mask wearing, before urging Americans to use masks later in the year.

 “Well, he lied to us. So if he lied about that, what else has he lied to you about?” questioned Nepute.

Masks have become commonplace in almost every setting, whether indoors or outdoors, but Dr. Popper mentioned how there have been “no studies” which actually examine the “effect of wearing a mask during all your waking hours.”

“There’s no science to back any of this and particularly no science to back the fact that wearing a mask twenty four-seven or every waking minute, is health promoting,” added Popper.

“There’s no data, there’s no research that supports that wearing a mask is beneficial. In fact, if you look at the data that’s been coming out, it’s quite the contrary,” stated Nepute.

Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE this petition, which asks policymakers at all levels of government to reverse mandatory mask orders within their borders.

Facebook has restored the share link for this petition, saying that the decision to block it was a 'mistake...'

Please share with your Facebook friends, but we should all take heed of this warning: when an organization or individuals have to beg, plead and cajole just to express objective truths, it may be time to start looking for other social networking platforms.

Facebook needs to treat its users with respect, no matter their political persuasion. Moreover, Facebook needs to treat objective reality and facts with more respect.

One-size-fits-all oppressive government mask mandates must stop!

Healthy adults and children should not be forced - by the state - to wear masks when the risk of infection is low and the benefit of wearing a mask is highly questionable.



Facebook is actively censoring this petition, saying that some people find it 'abusive.'

How anyone could find alternate facts about oppressive mask mandates 'abusive' is incredible...that is, impossible to believe.

This is exactly the kind of censorship which Big Tech is getting a bad reputation for.

The fact that Facebook calls differing opinion and objective reality "abusive" says a lot about Facebook and their agenda to silence reason and logic, not just conservatives and Christians.

But, people are more intelligent than Facebook give them credit for.

And, the more this continues, the more reasonable people will look alternate platforms to share their thoughts and connect with their friends and family. The more that happens, the less revenue Facebook will generate.

All of us have a decision to make, and the time is coming where we might have to tell our Facebook friends that we are moving to another platform.

We are encouraging people to continue SIGNING this petition and SHARING it via other platforms such as Parler and Gab, and to share the link below with your family and friends on Whatsapp, Telegram, Threema and Signal.

Thank you!


One-size-fits-all oppressive government mask mandates must stop!

Healthy adults and children should not be forced - by the state - to wear masks when the risk of infection is low and the benefit of wearing a mask is highly questionable.

Please SIGN this petition which asks policymakers at all levels of government to reverse mandatory mask mandates within their borders

Public health policies should be based on science and logic, not on the type of political posturing and virtue-signaling which led Joe Biden to recently call for a national mask mandate.

And, public health policies certainly shouldn't lead to a situation where more people could become sick.

But, that is exactly what these mandatory mask mandates are doing.

Here are four inconvenient facts about masks:

1) Masks** are largely ineffective at stopping the transmission of viruses.

The vast majority of masks worn by the public are made from material which cannot filter-out viruses because virus particles are too small to catch or obstruct.  Wearing cloth masks to stop a virus is like putting a bee in a bird cage to keep it from flying away.

Wearing a mask for long periods of time ensures that the wearer has a warm and moist receptacle around his or her mouth, on which viruses and bacteria can land and accumulate.

Thus, masks are actually likely to have little effect in stopping the spread of COVID-19 acting as a barrier, but could actually make things worse acting as a receptacle.

2) Mandates which call for masks to be worn outdoors are both absurd and oppressive.

3) There are clearly documented hazards of wearing masks for long periods of time.

4) And, since school is on everyone's mind...

Notwithstanding the above information on the ineffectiveness of most masks against viruses, we don't know if asymptomatic children can even transmit the virus.

But, it was a reported in an article in the July 21, 2020 Uk Times that: "There has been no recorded case of a teacher catching the coronavirus from a pupil anywhere in the world, according to one of the UK government's leading scientific advisers."

And, we also know that children are extremely unlikely to get seriously ill or die from COVID infections. In any case, children cannot possibly be expected to wear a mask properly in a way that would cut transmission.

There are still a lot of unknowns about COVID-19, but we have grown in our understanding of this disease since the beginning of the crisis.

The knowledge we have gained should allow government and health authorities to make more nuanced policies than the current one-size-fits-all mask mandates.

Where are the legislative hearings in county commissions, and state, provincial or federal legislatures before these drastic actions are mandated? Where are the open and transparent debates among experts that provide our representatives with the necessary information to make good policy decisions?

The real pandemic is the panic and the resulting tyranny that is being caused by dictatorial governors, corporate media and the monopolistic Big Tech.

The truth is that COVID-19 is like a bad cold for most people; this is not ebola or the plague.

Of course, the very elderly and those with serious health conditions should take precautions or be quarantined, but the rest of society should begin the long process of returning to normality.

The frenzy to force everyone to wear a mask, at all times, has gone beyond all comprehension, and goes against science and logic.

Please SIGN this petition which asks policymakers at all levels of government to reverse any mandatory mask order within the borders of their county, state, province, or country.

Thank you!

As mentioned by Nepute, a number of studies and demonstrations are now emerging, proving the inability of masks to prevent the passage of infection. In fact, Dr. Tenpenny commented how she had examined over one hundred peer reviewed articles, which all proved that “masks do nothing but make the wearer of the mask ill.”

Masks actually undermining physical health

But more worrying than the failure of masks to perform their supposed purpose, the panel drew attention to the detrimental effects which masks can have on those who wear them. Referring to a recent study of 25,000 German students, Nepute mentioned that 68% of them had “some kind of impairment” from mask wearing.

Tenpenny weighed in, warning of the psychological effects which mask mandates will have on children. “We are training them to be fearful to breathe, that oxygen is horrible for them and that anybody that they see that doesn’t wear a mask is dangerous to them,” she said.

“And instead of thinking of people that had masks in the past where you would be afraid of the masked person, that they might be there to kidnap you or harm you or do something like that, instead, now we’re seeing children who are like horrified that somebody doesn’t have a mask on.”

Aside from the mental effect of mask wearing, the panel also highlighted the danger which masks posed to the respiratory system. Nepute commented on the unusually large number of people having respiratory bacterial infections. 

“If you look at what’s happening right now and if you look at death certificates and you look at correlative deaths with COVID-19, what we find above all things is bacterial respiratory infections.”

In a similar vein to her comments on COVID-19 experimental vaccines, Popper described those who are “consenting” to the mask mandates, as taking part in “a clinical trial without their permission that they are not even aware of.”

Masks as a means of controlling the populace

As mask mandates have spread, so too, to some extent, has resistance. Such resistance has led to numerous instances of people without masks being confronted by other members of the public, shop employees and the police.

“This just reminds me of Nazi Germany, where, I mean, next they’re going to put a star on my arm right,” noted Popper. “And because where does it stop? It’s a sign of submission, it has nothing to do with health.”

People have been “brainwashed,” into thinking “it’s unsafe not to wear a mask,” she continued. “They are turning the population against each other…this is a very common tactic that’s been used by criminals and despots throughout history.”

The “efficacy” of masks, which politicians point to, is in reality efficacy in bringing about “encephalopathy,” Tenpenny said. “It will more effectively make their brains work less, which is what their goal is.”

So effective has the campaign been in promoting fear and mask wearing, that Tenpenny predicted it could take “years” for people to stop wearing masks, even if the mandates stopped. “There would be a huge sector of the population that’s going to keep wearing it for a long time because the fear based anxiety that has gotten embedded into their brain, they’re not going to give it up.”

Nor did she think it likely that globalist politicians would even release the mask mandates, suggesting the mandates would continue “as long as it’s convenient for them [politicians] and as long as it propagates their agenda.”

Tenpenny referred to the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset agenda, and how it is crucially linked to the unprecedented restrictions being imposed upon the world. “It’s all a planned mechanism way to dehumanize us, to separate us, to not touch each other and not shake hands, not do any of those things, to dehumanize us so that they can put us into an enslavement system of total control.”

Presenting hope

However, the panel also urged people to have hope and courage. Nepute called for a “collective decision,” where “millions of people” refused to comply, removed their masks and opened up their businesses again. Despite an initial period of “cognitive dissonance,” Nepute expressed hope that many would soon reject the restrictions being imposed on them.

“There’s no common sense to any of this. I am in control of my life. I’m going to do what my God given inalienable rights as an American and a human allow me to do,” Nepute declared. “And I hope that more people realize that and stand up for that. Will we get some pushback? Yes. Who are we going to get pushback from? The very small amount of people that want to control everyone else.”

“I’m telling you, now is the time to take action,” he said.

Popper supported her colleague, presenting the example of many thousands of businesses in Italy which opened in defiance of lockdown laws: “at some point in time this will gather enough momentum where it will be unstoppable.”

“The people who are behind all of this, the people who are controlling us and this whole situation, they are godless, soulless creatures. They are brains inside of functioning bodies, but they have no soul. And people like this, if you look at history, they have never prevailed,” Popper reminded.

“They have never prevailed. They’re evil enough to use their brains to construct something like this and carry you off. But they never, ever win in the end. And so I think we can take our lessons from that and have a lot of hope for the future.”
