How Mask Mandates severely harmed our Children

This is our second in a series of reports on the lies used by corrupt government bureaucrats to create fear in the months prior to the 2020 election. In our first article, we reviewed how the PCR test was deliberately misused to artificially inflate the number of false positive COVID cases by a factor of 30 to create an “emergency” when no emergency actual existed. In this article, we will review how these same officials used unscientific Mask Mandates to further increase fear. We will then summarize evidence that these masks mandates severely harmed our children. We hope you will share this information. It is time to hold these corrupt government officials accountable for the crimes they committed against all of us.

Reykdal has turned our Public Schools from a PCR Test prison to a Mask Mandate crime scene
On June 12, 2020, the Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction announced that cloth masks would be required in all school in Washington state when they starts in September – regardless of whether there is any risk of corona virus anywhere in the school district.


Reykdal repeated this order on July 29, 2021. Reykdal boasted that his school mask requirements were the “strictest in the nation.” Reykdal continued to enforce his mask mandate for a longer period of time that any other state in the nation. From March 2020 and through 2021 to April 2022, Washington was one of only 10 states to require mask wearing in all schools. The other 40 states either banned masks entirely or left it as a decision for the local school board.


Reykdal continued to enforce his mask mandates despite the fact that not a single child in Washington state has been documented to transmit the corona virus to a single adult.

Children are more likely to die from being hit by lightening while waiting for the school bus than they are from being infected by the corona virus while they are at school.

According to the Washington State Department of Health, there have been no fatalities due to the corona virus to any child under the age of 20 anywhere in Washington state:


If fact, on March 29, 2022, the CDC was finally forced to admit that there was not a single COVID fatality of any person under the age of 18 anywhere in the entire United States!

So why were our kids forced to wear masks?

Corrupt politicians claimed that our kids had to wear masks in order to protect the health of our teachers. However, more than 100 studies had already shown as early as May 2020 that children do not transmit the corona virus. Because of this fact, Sweden never required masks and never closed their schools in 2020 and neither students or teachers suffered any adverse consequences.


More than one million children in Washington state were deprived of an education for nearly two years despite the fact that there was not a single reported fatality of anyone under the age of 20. If Inslee or Reykdal really cared about the health of children and teachers in Washington state, they would encourage them to get some exercise every day instead of forcing families to hide in their homes.

So how much harm was inflected on our children by closing schools and then forcing kids to wear unhealthy masks to go back to school?


Lying to children by telling them they are a threat to their teachers and forcing them to wear masks is both physical and emotional child abuse. Those responsible for this monstrous crime against our children need to be held accountable for the abuse they inflicted.

Even before 2020, Reykdal’s policies had been a disaster. In fact, since Reykdal was elected, Washington student test scores have declined more than in any other state in the nation! His 2020 school closures led to a record decline in test scores – with students losing more than a year of learning!


Reykdal is literally the worst Superintendent in the United States and the worst Superintendent in the history of Washington state. But record declines in Math Test scores do not fully capture the harm Reykdal has inflicted on our students during his reign of fear and terror. His draconian policies on School Closures, Mask Mandates, Sex Ed for Kinders, Gender Mutilation for Middle Schoolers and Racial Guilt Trips for High Schoolers as lead to over 110,000 parents pulling their kids out of school – an increase of 28% since Reykdal took office. The loss of 24,000 students also led to the firing of more than 1000 teachers all across our state.

Students forced to remain in Reykdal’s school prisons have suffered from increases in Depression, Anxiety Disorders, Drug Abuse and Suicide. Studies published in December, 2021 & December 2023 found that Drug Overdoses among Washington state 14 to 18 year olds are the highest in the nation – and more than twice the national average!


In short, during the past 3 years more than 150 students have died due to drug overdoses while not a single child died from the corona virus. In addition, 20% of high school students now think about committing suicide and hundreds of thousands of students now suffer from Depression and Anxiety.


We will get into the research on the harm of wearing masks below. But let’s begin with a few relevant quotes:

“During normal day-to-day activities, face masks do not provide protection from respiratory viruses, such as COVID-19."
UK Health Minister, February 25, 2020

“STOP BUYING MASKS! They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching the Corona virus.”
US Surgeon General Jerome Adams, February 29, 2020

There is no evidence that the wearing of masks by the mass population has any particular benefit.”
World Health Organization, March 30, 2020


Children are not a risk to the health and safety of other children or a risk to their teachers
More than 100 additional studies from around the world have confirmed that children are not at risk from the corona virus and rarely if ever transmit the corona virus to adults. The result from a huge experiment involving tens of thousands of teachers and hundreds of thousands of students in Sweden was published on July 7, 2020.

The study compared the outcome in Sweden, where schools remained open, to its neighbor Finland, where schools were closed. “There was no difference in the overall incidence of the laboratory confirmed covid-19 cases in the age group 1-19 years in the two countries. No deaths were reported in this age group in either Sweden or Finland. Outbreak investigations in Finland have not shown children to be contributing and in Sweden a report comparing risk of covid-19 in different professions, showed no increased risk for teachers. 

On June 23, 2020, a French study was published analyzing whether students spread the corona virus to others. Here are some quotes:
“Of the 1,340 people included in the study, 139 had been infected by the virus, representing 10.4% of the population under study. 510 students from six primary schools were included. There were three probable cases of corona virus infection in three different schools before the schools closed for the lockdown. These cases did not give rise to secondary cases among other school students or teaching staff. Children did not spread the infection to other students or to teachers or other staff at the schools.”

These were only two of more than 100 studies that concluded that students do not spread the corona virus to other students or to teachers or parents. It is therefore insane to require students to wear masks in schools or anywhere else.

Masks do not stop viruses
More than 100 additional studies have proven that masks do not stop the corona virus because the virus is much smaller than the pore size of cotton masks. Instead, mask mandates are severely harmful to your health, increase your risk of disease and are particularly harmful to the development of young children. For a summary of these studies, see the following article:

Here are a few of the studies I cited in this article:

First is a study which found that both surgical and cotton masks were ineffective in blocking the corona virus. Here is the quote: “Both surgical and cotton masks seem to be ineffective in preventing the dissemination of SARS–CoV-2 from the coughs of patients with COVID-19 to the environment and external mask surface.” Here is the link:

Here is a link to a study that compared cloth masks to both no masks and surgical masks.

The cloth mask group had a higher rate of infection than the no mask group and a much higher rate of infection than the surgical mask group. The penetration of viruses was 97% in the cloth mask group versus 44% in the surgical mask group. Here is a quote: “The results caution against the use of cloth masks. Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection... cloth masks should not be recommended ... particularly in high-risk situations.”

Here is a link to a 2012 review of the highest quality studies on this subject:

There were 17 eligible studies. Six of eight randomized controlled trials found no significant differences between control groups (people not wearing masks) and intervention groups (N95 masks).  None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between N95 mask use and protection against influenza infection.

A 2010 study in France randomly placed sick people and their household contacts into either a mask group or a no-mask control group. Within a week, 15.8 percent of household contacts in the no-mask control group and 16.2 percent in the mask group developed an “influenza-like illness”. The researchers concluded “we did not identify any trend in the results suggesting effectiveness of face masks.”

A 2010 study in New York that compared washing hands to wearing masks and washing hands found that those in the hand-washing group were less likely to develop any symptoms of an upper respiratory infection (42 percent experienced symptoms) than those in the mask-plus-hand-hygiene group (61 percent). This statistically significant finding suggests that wearing a mask actually undermines the benefits of hand hygiene.

In 2015, a Random Control Trial on the effectiveness of cloth masks found that cloth masks allowed 97% of particles (bigger than a virus) pass through. The authors concluded that wearing a cloth mask “may potentially increase the infection risk for health-care workers. The virus may survive on the surface of the face masks, while a contaminated cloth mask may transfer pathogen from the mask to the bare hands of the wearer,” which could lead to hand hygiene being “compromised.” They concluded that “cloth masks should not be recommended.”

On April 19, 2020, Dr. John Lee published an article in the Spectator in which he summarized the research on face masks. Here is a link to this article:

Dr. Lee began by pointing out that a flu virus like the corona virus is about 1000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. He then referred to a study of the pore sizes of 20 different cotton masks. Here is a link to the study:

The researchers found that all of the cotton masks had pore sizes that were bigger than the width of a human hair – and got even bigger after washing. This means that the width of the holes in every cotton mask are 1000 times bigger than the size of the corona virus. Imagine trying to catch a fish with a net where the holes were 1000 times bigger than the fish you were trying to catch. - Do you see that you will not catch a single fish with such a useless net?

For those who are more visually oriented, I have created the following diagram to show how much bigger each hole in a cotton mask is in comparison to the size of the corona virus. The corona virus is the solid dark dot in the center of the light diagram. The entire outer box of the diagram represents a single pore or hole in a cotton mask:


Even N-95 surgical masks have pore sizes that are three times bigger than viruses. So what is the point of N-95 or surgical masks? The answer is that surgical masks might stop bacteria – which are ten times bigger than viruses.

Here is what the Johan Carlson from the Swedish Public Health Agency said on May 13, 2020, in response to a question on why wearing masks is not recommended in Sweden: "Face masks in public spaces do not provide any greater protection to the population."

In November 2020, a community-based randomized control trial (RCT) in Denmark published to assess whether masks could decrease transmission. Here is a link to the Danish Mask study:

Here is a quote from the Danish RCT study: " A total of 3030 participants were randomly assigned to the recommendation to wear masks, and 2994 were assigned to control; 4862 completed the study." Thus, there were about 6000 people in this study. There was a positive Corona test in 1.8 percent of the mask group and in 2.1 percent of the control group. However, the corona test was and still is extremely unreliable. So statistically, there was no difference.

A leading German virologist, Dr. Hendrik Streeck stated that masks are a “wonderful breeding ground for bacteria and fungi”. 

Maybe this is why Fauci does not like to wear masks:


Serious Health Drawbacks of Wearing Masks
It might be acceptable to have everyone wear masks if it made them feel more comfortable about going out in public – and if there were no serious health drawbacks of wearing masks. But in fact, masks do not make everyone feel more comfortable. Instead, they simply instill more fear in people and make them even more afraid to go out in public. As for the health drawbacks, there are several.

Dr. Jenny Harries, England's deputy chief medical officer, has warned that it was not a good idea for the public to wear face masks as the virus can get trapped in the material and causes infection when the wearer breathes in. Masks are also a breeding ground for bacteria. "For the average member of the public walking down a street, it is not a good idea," Dr. Harries said.

The main problem is that - even when you are not sick - when you breath inside of a well fitted mask, you exhale air with a high concentration of carbon dioxide and a relatively low concentration of oxygen. You then inhale this same “bad” air back in again.

You then repeat this process over and over again – with the air quality getting progressively worse each time you breath. It will soon become obvious to you that you are feeling ill and feeling like you are about to pass out. This is because your brain needs a lot of oxygen and is trying to warn you to stop wearing the mask.

Reduced oxygen supply is also why people who are forced to wear masks at work all day often develop severe headaches. Researchers found that about a third of the workers developed headaches with use of masks and 60% required pain medications for relief.


The biggest problem is that a drop in oxygen levels is certain to harm your immune system – which is the only thing that actually is protecting you from the corona virus.

Several studies have shown that hypoxia can reduce the immune cells that fight viral infections (CD4+ T-lymphocyte). Here are a couple of links:

This reduction in T cells increases the chances of you contracting any infection, including the corona virus - and makes the consequences of that infection much graver. In short, wearing a mask may actually increase your risk of infections.

People with cancer should certainly not wear masks since many cancers grow best in a low oxygen environment. Low oxygen levels may also play a part in increasing heart attacks and strokes – which along with cancer are the three leading causes of death.

Some doctors have claimed there are even more serious problems with having sick people wearing masks. Here is a quote: “By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.” — Russell Blaylock, MD


A March 2023 study by by German researchers concluded that face masks can cause carbon dioxide poisoning when worn even for short periods and may have contributed significantly to cognitive decline in children, among other destructive health issues. The study included a review of 43 previously published studies on exposure to CO2 and mask-wearing. The study notes that even short-term exposure to concentrations of CO2 as low as 0.3% caused brain damage, increased anxiety, and impaired memory in both pregnant rats and young mice in one study. The study also points to research that found just five minutes of mask wearing resulted in CO2 levels increasing to between 1.4 percent and 3.2 percent.”


Requiring adults to wear masks is emotionally harmful to children as adults wearing masks causes children to react with fear
On April 17, 2020, Dr. Kathleen Pike from Columbia University posted an article, Psychological Harms of Face Masks
Here is a quote: "Many young children burst into tears or recoil when someone wearing a mask approaches. It’s so common that some elementary schools prohibit masks at the school Halloween parade. One reason for this is that the development of facial recognition is relatively weak in young children. According to University of Toronto psychologist, Dr. Kang Lee, it is not until kids are about 14 years old that they reach adult skill levels in recognizing faces.

Before then, kids tend to see individual facial features, rather than recognizing the person as a whole. By putting on masks, we take away information that makes it especially difficult for children to recognize others and read emotional signals, which is unsettling and disconcerting. These issues may be especially true for children with autism spectrum disorder, including Asperger’s syndrome, who tend to have particular difficulties reading non-verbal cues. We depend on non-verbal behavior, and particularly facial expression, to express ourselves and communicate to others. With our faces half-covered, we lose key non-verbal information.”


An October 2020 study of students in Germany found that over two thirds of all students suffered adverse health effects from wearing masks at school. “20,353 parents submitted reports on almost 26,000 children, Impairments caused by students wearing masks were reported by 68% of the parents. These included irritability (60%), headache (53%), difficulty concentrating (50%), reluctance to go to school (44%), impaired learning (38%) and fatigue (37%).”

Long Term Health Dangers of Polypropylene Masks
For years, cigarette makers denied that cigarettes could cause lung cancer. For years, asbestos makes denied that asbestos fibers could cause lung cancer. Today, the makers of Polypropylene disposable face masks deny that polypropylene micro fibers can cause cancer.

We will not know the long term health consequences of forcing millions of children to wear polypropylene face masks for up to 8 hours a day in order to attend school because it takes an average of 20 years or more for cancer to develop. However, we do know that many micro particles can damage lung tissues, leading to cancer, asthma attacks, and other health problems. We also know that micro plastic exposure causes inflammation, cell death, and DNA damage in laboratory animals and cell cultures. We also now know that shameful, disgusting mask mandates have led to huge amounts of polypropylene micro particles being permanently deposited in the lower lungs of most humans.

I first warned of the dangers of polypropylene masks in May 2020. The first scientific study to warn of the dangers of inhaled micro plastics from polypropylene masks was published on July 6, 2020. The article warned that wearing polypropylene masks could lead to a deadly lung disease known as Pulmonary fibrosis.

In 2022, a UK study confirmed that micro plastics were found deep in the lungs of 11 out of 13 lung samples with the most common plastic being polypropylene. In second place was polyethylene commonly used to make cheap disposable water bottles.

Dr. Osita Onugha, a lung surgeon at Saint John’s Cancer Institute in Santa Monica, California told Medical News Today:

“The real question is what does something within the body do? The body does not like things that cause inflammation and things that are foreign like plastics. So, if it leads to chronic inflammation, that’s where you can have things that develop years down the road.”

Given there is no benefit to wearing masks, it is a crime that our children will be forced to live with this danger for the rest of their lives.

Forcing students to wear masks at school is Brain Washing
Schools hold a special place in child development. Children assume that their teachers are like Gods. Children assume that their teachers are telling them the truth. Children will therefore blindly follow their teachers and be impacted by their teachers for the rest of their lives. Instead of teaching children to think independently, mask wearing brain washes them into blindly following authority figures.


In short, requiring young children to wear masks and be in schools where teachers are required to wear masks is child abuse.


The Real Reason Children are Required to Wear Masks…
Follow the Money…
Billions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks!
Mask wearing reduces the flow of oxygen to the brain and increases the amount of carbon dioxide. Anyone who has worn a tight fitting masks for more than five minutes knows this is true. Masks also are the perfect breeding grounds for viruses and bacteria. Finally, masks are severely harmful to small children who rely heavily on facial clues for social learning and support.


So what is the real reason politicians like Inslee and Reykdal are requiring all students in Washington state to wear masks given that masks do not stop any virus and children are not a risk to themselves or a risk to their teachers?

The answer is that the CDC is completely owned by drug companies that make billions of dollars by scaring people to death. Corrupt politicians are completely owned by drug companies that are making billions of dollars pushing experimental GMO shots onto people. The Mass Media is also completely owned by drug companies making billions of dollars from their GMO shots.

Here is a table from a March 1, 2021 Table from the US Congressional Research Service:

Drug Company

GMO Shot Contract
in Billions of Dollars





Astra Zeneca


Johnson and Johnson






The total so far has been about $17.5 billion dollars just for the first wave of government contracts.

This does not count the additional billions that will come from twice a year booster shots. In July, 2021, Pfizer announced that it made $11 billion from its GMO shots in the first quarter of 2021 and it estimated that it will make $33 billion during the rest of 2021.

There is no a public health crisis. There is a public corruption crisis. Drug companies are the biggest donors to re-election campaigns for corrupt politicians. Drug companies are the biggest advertising customers for TV stations, radio stations and newspapers.


A Epidemic of Greed, Fear and Corruption
Here is how the process works:

Step 1: Corrupt CDC uses fake PCR tests to claim that huge numbers of people are getting and dying from the corona virus.

Step 2: Corrupt politicians require kids and adults to wear masks – scaring everyone to death.

Step 3: Corrupt Media spreads lies and censors the truth – keeping voters and parents in the dark about what is really happening.

Step 4: Drug companies get billions of dollars in kick backs which are spread around to the corrupt bribes to the CDC, corrupt politicians and the corrupt media.

Step 5: Students are required to wear masks to maintain the illusion of a public health emergency – making even more money for the corrupt drug companies and their accomplices.

Nine Reasons the Mandatory Mask Order is Unconstitutional

#1 Only the People or the Legislature can pass a new law.
Under Article 2, Section 1 of our State Constitution, the power to create new laws is reserved for the legislature. Not even the Governor has the power to create laws. Just the People through Initiatives and the Legislature through the passage of bills. Even the legislature must hold public hearings and take a public vote before passing a new law.

The one exception to this legal framework is if there is an emergency. The governor can create temporary rules to deal with an emergency. But the rules are temporary and the emergency must be a real emergency. We will therefore examine the basis for this emergency next.

#2 There was no health emergency in Washington state.

Despite the Washington State Department of Health claiming that up to 28 Corona Virus fatalities per day occurred in Washington state, the total number of fatalities per day in the CDC data base showed no increase in 2020 compared to prior years. Source: Washington State Department of Health Corona Virus Dashboard

Corona virus hospital admissions in our state never exceeded 80 people per day – and currently are at less than 30 people per day. This is in a state of 7.6 million people with tens of thousands of hospital beds and ICU units.

This is why the multi-million dollar emergency hospital built in Seattle in April 2020 never treated a single patient:


The fact that there never was a health emergency to begin with means that Jay Inslee exceeded his authority and abused his power.

#3 Even if there was a health emergency, requiring masks in public places would not reduce the rate of transmission because public places are not the primary location where corona virus transmissions are occurring!

Requiring masks in public spaces does not reduce the corona virus because the primary location of transmission is indoors in private locations – the one place where masks are not required!

There are many indications that the corona virus is spread through close contact indoors – which explains why social distancing did nothing to reduce fatalities in the above graphs. One indication was the New York study. Data from 100 New York hospitals who surveyed 1000 new patients during the first week in May 2020 confirmed that 66% of new corona virus admissions were people who were at locked down in their homes and were following government guidelines to not leave their homes. An additional 20% were locked down in nursing homes and assisted living homes and also never went outside. Thus, 86% of all cases were transmitted inside of homes where masks are not required - rather than in public spaces where masks are required.


This study is proof that requiring masks in public places is simply ridiculous and not based on any rational science. The government order to “Stay Inside to Save Lives” is false. Staying inside increases infections and fatalities. Going outside reduces infections and fatalities.

#4 Even if corona virus transmissions were occurring in public places, all viruses spread so rapidly that it is impossible to change the eventual spread of viruses throughout the community.

#5 Even if was possible to slow the transmission rate of the corona virus, wearing cotton masks does not reduce transmission because the pore size in cotton masks is thousands of times larger than the corona virus.

#6 Wearing masks can harm your immune system

#7 Requiring children to wear masks is child abuse - because no child has been shown to transmit the corona virus to any adult.

#8 Requiring adults to wear masks is emotionally harmful to children as adults wearing masks around children causes children to react with fear

#9 School children have died from wearing masks

The real law is the Washington State Constitution
Because there is no evidence of any health emergency, the Governor’s never-ending emergency orders have no force of law. But even if there was an emergency, the United State and Washington State Constitutions are not suspended during any emergency. All Americans have a God given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We have a right to Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Assembly. All of these rights have been trampled on by corrupt politicians and their accomplices in the media.

There is no emergency. There was no reason to shut down schools. There is no reason for masks. The only remaining question is when will parents finally stand up and demand and end to this child abuse?

It is time to put an end to Reykdal’s draconian policies and his complete disregard for the health and well being of our kids. It is time to stop sex ed for Kinders. It is time to stop gender mutilation of Middle Schools. It is time to stop racial shaming of high schoolers. It is time to end high stakes tests that are so difficult that no one in the legislature – including Reykdal – can pass them.


We need to end this insanity – and hold Olympia con artists accountable for the lies they told us and the harm they needlessly inflicted on our children. And that is why once again I am running for State Superintendent this year. I will end school closures and mask mandates. I will return to local control of our schools – as is required by our State Constitution.

As always, I look forward to your questions and comments.
