On the subject of masks, I previously reported on a Canadian university study that found that the type of cloth masks most people wear are only about 10% effective at stopping the spread of COVID (prompting one of my writers to observe, “So to stop a disease that we have a 99.7% chance of surviving, we have to wear masks that have a 90% chance of failing.”)

Now, at long last, there’s finally a large-scale study awaiting peer review that assesses the real-world effectiveness of masks. It was a “cluster randomized trial” done in Bangladesh and involved over 342,000 unvaccinated people in 600 villages. Some villages had no masks and people were just told to social distance, some had typical cloth masks, and some had more effective surgical masks. Here’s a video explaining the results.

As usual, there are various caveats that you can hear about in the video, but in a nutshell: surgical masks made enough of a difference in infection rates to be noticeable, but the difference between those using the cloth masks most people wear and those with no masks at all was “statistically insignificant.”

Yet in some liberal cities, actual criminals are being let out of jail while people are being arrested for refusing to wear masks. So to avoid jail in a leftist-run city, you can rob a convenience store, just as long as you're wearing a mask.

    Dear Mr. Huckabee, you have such passion about so many political misjustests. I know you know what you are talking about because of your long career as a Republican representative. I myself was a long time Democrat until all this baloney about President Trump happened. Funny I didn't vote for President Trump, the 1st time, could not stand the man, then I saw he kept his word. My Daddy told me when I was young, who a person is is the most valuable thing we have. Well I emailed my State Repesentives in NM, I emailed Nancy Polosi telling them to stop embrassing me and our country. Little good that did and it got me hacked day after my email to Ms. Polosi, interesting. Well needless to say I had to change parties and am now a Republican. What I was wondering if you thought you could start adding petition for us to sign to your news that appears we can do nothing to stop these scoundrels. With our prayers to Almighty GOD, and our signatures maybe it would make a difference. A long time ago I stood up against a powerful man in my community, he said" he would chew me up and spit me out".It definatly looked like I lost, but all these 25 years later he still hasn't found his way around the prayers of a little housewife. Please think about it. Ask our LORD, what HE thinks. I think if we play dead, the consequences will be very destructive. Very truly yours, Jacqueline Gutierrez aka [email protected]

    I ordered a couple nifty souvenir type masks and wore them when necessary. I now have them hanging up as decorations.

    I just don't understand why Republicans just have these committee meetings and basically go blah, blah, blah. What a waste of time and public monies. What they should do is start calling these socialistic Democrats exactly what they are: Communists! I just heard Mayorkas inform a Senate committee, when asked about ball park numbers, of how many illegal immigrants have been dispersed around the nation without accurate vetting, covid testing, proof of a negative test or even proof o vaccination. He basically hemmed and hawed like a school boy caught without his homework finished.
    I would have asked him something like this. Secretary Mayorkas or can I refer to you as Comrade Mayorkas? At any rate, you've stated recently that the border is closed. With that totally idiotic statement I can make several judgments. 1. You're a complete Communist idiot. 2. You are a complete Communist incompetent Secretary. 3. You're a Communist that is mentally deranged and live in a fantasy world. I'm still trying to figure out which one is most appropriate and accurate or if they all are accurate.
    There! Someone actually said it! Since I believe Obama is still running the show (Did you see the conversation with Obama and Springsteen where Obama said he'd be fine if someone would take direction from him while he sat in his basement in his gym gear and directed everything?)
    Obama hates this country and wants to reduce this great country of ours to a mere 3rd world nation. The Communist Democrats have unleashed so many major crisis its all one can do to keep up with them. Which is exactly the idea. Since its the House of Representatives that must start impeachment proceedings, I sincerely hope (and pray) that in 2022 Republicans take the House back by a significant amount and then start impeachment proceedings against the whole lot of them (Biden, Harris, Milley (court-martial) Austin, the works.) Of course, watching the Republicans now do their thing which is blah, blah, blah instead of making headlines using the same tactics the Communist Democrats have used in the past would be too much to ask. They could say, for example, Biden is comprised as China is totally in control of him. Why? Because of the money deal Hunter got and the portion of the money designated for Biden. That along with what was on the laptop when he was in the Far East. The F.B.I. has had the laptop for two years now and what has been done with it? Absolutely nothing! Nada! Zip! I use to have the greatest respect for the F.B.I. but not now. Just a bunch of Communist agents playing their political games.
    It really is an American Tragedy!
    I've learned that what ever a Communist Democrat claims the Republicans are doing is actually and exactly what they are doing. It's brilliant. Imply Trump was in cahoots with Russia while the Democrats were actually doing that! Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff are all Communist Democrats that do nothing but lie. I'm so sick of these liars. I think of all those brave men and women that have fought in WWII and other conflicts that paid the ultimate price only to have these incompetent Communists try to completely change this (once) great nation. They're a bunch of parasites!

    Governor are you aware of the fraud being done by Relaxium where they offer free bottle and immediately charge in my case $88.95 and then $85.90 a few days after. Please contact me.

    I am a retired engineer after last year hear Vancouver WA when we were inundated with smoke from the wildfires and told that the mask the medical clinic were passing out for COVID-19 protection would not stop smoke particle from entering your lungs a bunch of my former colleges ran a study on the effectiveness of the mask. For that, a COVID virus is many times smaller than a smoke particle. I took the information to my primary care doctor, he examined it and flat told me that it was incorrect, but could not give me any statics to back it up. The conclusion is we blindly follow a mandate that has no scientific backing that it actually works, but people out of FEAR that the Biden Administration is amplifying with his science, not real science, seem to follow him like sheep follow a judas goat to slaughter. The Democrat states just demand we do it and this vaccine nonsense; if it were so great, why are vaccinated people getting covid or is it really another feel-good measure. I am half vaccinated, will not get the other shot. A good friend with no medical problems, also 74 got the second shot and was in a coma for three weeks; that was enough for me to say no; I guess I am going to jail when Biden finally mandates we all have to have to get the shot.
