Governors Gianforte and Noem respond…
We were all promised, as the American public, that if we got vaccinated we could stop wearing masks inside (except for mass transit, like railroads and airplanes). The message was simple; if you get vaccinated, you can take your mask off. That was the promise from the Biden Administration.
In case these need to be fished out of the Orwellian Memory Hole, the headlines all told us was Biden and the CDC were promising us; you did not need a mask if you were vaccinated. See the headlines and screenshots below.
Biden’s policy changed when the CDC announced that the vaccine would prevent contracting COVID-19 or spreading it, and so on May 13, he signed his pronouncement dropping his mask requirement (see below). After all, the CDC are the “experts,” nearly godlike in their capacity to get it right, no matter how many times they’ve gotten it wrong (click to read the link below).
Oh, but it turns out the so-called “conspiracy theorists” were right and the CDC has again changed course, doubting the vaccines work to stop the spread of COVID-19. And now, they’ve reversed their policy again (and the White House with it). See below.
The Big Tech media claims, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended Tuesday that fully vaccinated people begin wearing masks indoors again in places”…before adding…
Federal health officials still believe fully vaccinated individuals represent a very small amount of transmission. Still, some vaccinated people could be carrying higher levels of the virus than previously understood and potentially transmit it to others.
This is the CDC’s way of saying, “You know that whole ‘take the vaccine and everything will go back to normal’ thing? We have no idea what we are talking about.”
Please grasp this; Americans were told that we could take off our masks if only we got vaccinated because vaccines work. Then it was Indian-given after Big Pharma made billions, killed thousands, and lied prolifically to the American public. This might be the biggest scam in American history.
Federal regulations now passed down from Biden demand masking in public schools this Fall again, thanks to what they are calling the “Delta Variant,” a strain which in theory is growing and the vaccine doesn’t help (as though it ever did).
If Biden and the Democrats have their way, it appears that we will be forced to cover our face no matter what, forever, no matter how many unknown or untested chemicals we put into our body. They want us to live in fear.
Montana’s governor, Greg Gianforte, has responded with a clear refusal to use state resources to enforce Biden’s new mandate.
The governor’s office released a statement, “While the CDC has repeatedly changed its mask recommendations over the last 16 months, the governor is committed to keeping our state open, and encourages Montanans to talk with their doctor about getting a safe, effective vaccine.’
Please note, that Gianforte contracted COVID-19 within days of getting his vaccine (as have many thousands of more people). Gianforte, careful not to bring the ire of Washington down upon Montana because of our lust for Washington’s resources, was not as blunt as South Dakota governor, Kristi Noem.
Noem responded, “The CDC shifts their position AGAIN,” she said on Twitter.
Noem continued, “South Dakota’s cases remain low. If you’re worried about the virus, you’re free to get vaccinated, wear a mask, or stay at home. But we won’t be mandating anything. And the CDC’s inconsistency doesn’t help the American people.”
In fact, Noem went on to immediately lift the only mandate that ever existed in South Dakota – its prison population. No doubt, this was a thumb-to-the-eye of Washington. Again and again, with the exception of refusing to sign bills against boys playing in girl sports (Gianforte signed a similar bill), she has proven herself to be even more conservative (and vocal) than her neighboring governor to the North when it comes to the state’s relationship with the federal government.
Meanwhile, the blue states and the blue-dot cities in Montana are busy putting their masks back on, in deference to the Centers for Disease Control changing their position again. Refuse to wear them, Montana. Enough is enough.
