“The Science,” we have been told since March 2020, is the rigorous set of guidelines that must be “followed” with unquestioning obedience in order to reduce the spread, flatten the curve, return to normal, get our freedom back, end the lockdowns, or any other arbitrary carrot placed on the stick (yes they literally said this) that is wielded by the tyrant class.
If you don’t follow said “The Science” you are a science denying buffoon who wants grandma to die, doesn’t care about the children, are an alt-right Trump humper, a white supremacist, extremist, and most likely a domestic terrorist.
“Don’t wear a mask!” “Wear a mask!” “Wear two masks!” Wear three masks!” “Cloth masks don’t work!” “Only N95s will protect you!”
“If you’re vaccinated you can’t get covid.” “Vaccines are 100% effective at stopping covid.” “Vaccines are 96% effective.”
“Vaccines are 70% effective.” “Vaccines no longer effective after six months.” “Boosters are our only way out of covid.” “It is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
“The Science,” as our readers know has been a shifting goal post since day one and has had almost nothing to do with actual science at all. When the pro-mandate psychopaths changed an arbitrary dictate, we are told that the virus has changed, not “The Science.” Now, however, they are reversing course.
As others noted, there is nothing in The Science™ that changed to justify Dem politicians suddenly ending mask mandates. All that changed is the political fear they have.
Conflating "The Science" with politics like this is a key reason many lost trust in public health experts. https://t.co/yYpjR4b5Bt

From the beginning, the folks who actually followed the science began to see a pattern of seasonality and noticed the long-lasting immunity that the previously infected carried on. But these claims were blasphemous to team doom whose army of fact checking autocrats quickly dispelled, silencing anyone who claimed otherwise.
Cloth masks, we were told, were our way out of this mess. But even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has admitted they have never been effective, though they still recommend you muzzle yourself.
Despite these admissions, there are still fear-addicted triple maskers, begging for more lockdowns and boosters while clinging to what’s left of their false sense of security — but they are quickly becoming the fringe minority and their relevance is in steady decline.
JUST IN! Mask requirements for schools will also be lifted on March 31, the Oregon Health Authority said.https://t.co/ynTVSYHDS2

History, we are told, has two sides, and as “The Science” narrative comes crashing down, it appears that there is a mass rush to get to the right side. Restrictions are quickly being lifted all over the country and the pro-lockdown politicians are scrambling not to look like tyrants. But it’s too late, the jig is up.
Thank you @TheDemocrats for coordinating your Covid pivot and making it abundantly clear that politics was in the driver seat all along and not “science”.

Now, it seems that team doom can’t act fast enough as mass resistance to mask mandates — especially for children — grows around the country.
Agree with @UCSF MDs @SFGate: "We want all COVID restrictions in schools lifted. No, that’s not radical." I would also emphasize ending quarantines for unvax'd kids here in SF, as immunity (from vax or prior disease) is high. https://t.co/6ABhnLXLk1 @JeanneNoble18 @VPrasadMDMPH

Governor Murphy's anticipated announcement that the mask mandate on our children in schools will be ending next month is welcome, but perplexing news.

As some states like New York, continue to hold out, muzzling children in complete defiance of the actual science, the resistance against them continues to grow. Their reluctance to admit they were wrong only solidifies their political demise by furthering the suffering of children, ensuring they end up on the wrong side of history.

Perhaps one of the largest admissions or changes in policy is the move by the Biden administration to finally distinguish between patients being hospitalized with covid versus being hospitalized for covid. This has been a point of disputation since the beginning and the feds and many state governments have refused to report these numbers, leading to distortions in the actual count — like a person overdosing on heroin being counted as a covid death because he tested positive three months prior — yes that actually happened.
All that is now changing, however, as Politico reports that the Biden Administration is working on recalculating the number of COVID hospitalizations in the US to exclude those who may have tested positive for COVID, but were actually being treated for something else.
A task force comprised of scientists and data specialists at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are working with hospitals nationwide to improve Covid-19 reporting. The group is asking hospitals to report numbers of patients who go to the facility because they have Covid-19 and separate those from individuals who go in for other reasons and test positive after being admitted, the two officials said.
It only took them two years of crashing the economy, tormenting children in schools, destroying family businesses, sending suicides and overdoses to record highs, and ushering in a massive covid police state, to finally start reporting on accurate numbers. Better late than never, right?

Though team doom is lifting their restrictions and finally being somewhat transparent with numbers, rest assured that they are not giving up that easily. Their new plan is censorship.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of people actually following science, the lockdowns and arbitrary mandates were exposed as unnecessary and cruel. If these people would have all been censored, however — like many of them were — there would be no one to challenge the tyrants at their own game.
This is why the mainstream press are more concerned about silencing Joe Rogan than they are about digging into the Ghislaine Maxwell case. If they can silence one of the largest audiences for free discussion of ideas on the planet, they can silence anyone.
That is why we must be resilient and that is why standing up for the speech of others — even if it offends you, infuriates you, or makes you uncomfortable — is paramount.
