President Trump is now ordering officials and visitors to wear masks in the West Wing of the White House, according to a Wall Street Journal report, but only after months of refusing to wear masks, during which the coronavirus spread to at least two White House officials (and multiple secret service agents).
The White House directed officials to wear masks at all times inside the building except when sitting at their own desks, administration officials said Monday… The directive, which officials said was delivered in a memo, comes as White House officials have largely resisted wearing masks in public and in private.
Because we live in a cause-and-effect universe, actions have consequences. Refusing to wear masks allows the virus to rapidly spread in indoor environments. Ordering officials and visitors to start wearing masks will surely help prevent future spread of the virus, but it can’t reverse the infections that have already occurred.
Informed people have known for at least two months that masks are very effective at halting the spread of the coronavirus indoors. Trump’s refusal to embrace the wearing of masks has also apparently inspired his many followers to become anti-mask advocates who refuse to wear masks as they gather in public protest.
Want evidence that masks work? Nations that have embraced mandatory mask policies in shared spaces are doing very well handling the virus:
… while nations that have rejected or ignored mask policies are doing very poorly:
The coronavirus is spreading through the White House because that’s what happens when ignorant people don’t wear masks
Thanks to the anti-mask policies that existed until today, a “high ranking official” in the White House has now contracted the coronavirus, according to The Sun:
Correspondent April Ryan tweeted: “I’m hearing on good authority that #coronavirus is more rampant in the #WhiteHouse than the public is being told.
An isolated Trump is said to be “spooked” that the virus has made it to the White House after Mike Pence’s press secretary Katie Miller was diagnosed, reports The Guardian.
President Trump shouldn’t be surprised that the coronavirus has spread around the White House while his own people were refusing to wear masks. By the same reasoning, people who refuse to wear seat belts shouldn’t be surprised when their faces get smashed into steering columns and windshields following unexpected traffic accidents. If you’re not going to wear protective gear, don’t be surprised when bad things happen to you.
Masks work. That’s why surgeons wear them during surgical procedures, by the way. And it seems insane that our own president took 2-3 months to figure out something that nearly all the other countries in the world — including many Third World nations — figured out long ago.
I sure hope we don’t get involved in a nuclear conflict during Trump’s presidency, or we’ll all have to sit the president down and teach him about the atom so that he doesn’t take months to figure out how radioactive fallout works. (And don’t even try to teach him about the “half life” of a radioisotope…)
Then again, Trump isn’t a dementia patient like the Democrat nominee, but I’m really not sure what’s worse: Having no knowledge or having no mind.
Either way, it seems we’re all screwed. With leaders like this, who needs international enemies? Is there an option on the ballot for a candidate who understands the basics of science, medicine, economics, history, and who isn’t a liberty-hating globalist pedophile? Now that would be a reason to get out and vote.
About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.
Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.
The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.
Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.
Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.
With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.
Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
