Antifa Burns Bibles. Democrats Support Antifa And Make Going to Church Illegal. You Figure It Out.

Evil in action... Vote for your lives in November.

Amy McGrath smiles and nods at Red states getting what comes to them on coronovirus.

This evil creature hates you. Don't forget that in November.

Great Trump Ad: Joe Biden Got It Wrong On China Virus

Google and liberals point to this study to prove cloth masks work, but it has problems...

This study comes to the top on Google, but not Bing or DuckDuckGo when you search "what size particles do cloth masks filter." The top 4 results on Google link back to this study. So, Google really wants you to read it. Liberals will often point you to it when mandatory masks are being discussed.

The study claims face masks, including some cloth, filter particles in the small range of the covid-19 virus. Depending on the material, the filtration rate is 5% to 80% for particles with diameters similar to the covid-19 virus. This seems illogical because the opening in cloth masks are larger than covid-19 virus particles. The study claims many cloth or hybrid material masks will stop the small particles due to electrostatics. I found several problems with the study, which they have already been forced to revise one time.

1. They didn't test the material using actual virus particles. They used salt.

The aerosol particles are generated using a commercial sodium chloride (NaCl) aerosol generator (TSI Particle Generator, model #8026), producing particles in the range of a few tens of nanometers to approximately 10 μm. 

Salt atoms are naturally ionized. I doubt covid-19 particles have the same level of ionization, but this isn't addressed in the study.

2. They don't tell you the humidity level, that I could find, during the test. Everyone knows very low humidity helps with electrostatic charge. Ever been shocked during a kiss after walking across the carpet on a low humidity day? It doesn't happen when the humidity is high.

3. Since your hot humid breath is passing through the fabric, the fabric masks are going to quickly lose a lot of their electrostatic capture ability. If it's hot and you sweat, the mask is actually going to get wet. 

4. They tried to simulate leakage. They estimated a 0.5%~2% leakage around the mask which they simulated by drilling holes. That's laughable for anything less than a N95 mask. By now, we have all worn a cloth mask and know the leakage is significant. The hot moist air leaking out is what fogs your glasses. Many people wear their masks loosely to improve breath-ability. Don't get me started on the bandanas tied around the face or the cloth masks with an exhaust valve. They are laughable. 

5. They only tested at low CFM's to simulate regular breathing and breathing during exercise. Regular breathing expels air at about 7 mph. Coughs can hit 50 mph and sneezes can hit 100 mph. 

6. The materials they checked all had a breath-ability difficulty level of a N95 mask or higher! Experts steer people to fabric masks because they are easier to breath through, but that isn't true is you layer the materials and/or use really tight weaves.  They found quilt material with a batting almost a 1/4 inch thick was very effective. Would you like to try and breath through that all day? 

Here is a chart showing the pressure differentials they tested equaled or were much higher than N95 masks.
7. The study only addresses particle size filtration by various mask materials. It doesn't address the fact that people touch their faces much more when wearing a mask and don't change or wash the mask as often ans recommended.

8. This was a laboratory study, not a real world study. Do masks reduce covid-19 spread in the real world? There are lot's of models that predict they "may" reduce the spread, but if you aren't skeptical of models at this point, I can't help you. Remember when models claimed 2.5 million Americans were going to die from covid-19? Models also claimed the Arctic would be ice free now. It's not. 

Researchers said wearing face masks in public reduced the daily number of coronavirus by as much as 2% in Washington, D.C. and the 15 states that mandated face mask use compared to states that did not.
Many people feel mandatory mask wearing is a violation of their rights. Masks are certainly burdensome on the public. A 2% reduction is almost statistically insignificant.  Let the people who want to wear masks wear them and let the rest of us make our own health choices.

Confirmed: Florida covid numbers exaggerated by lumping in old antibody tests

I have been watching the Florida covid numbers closely . I am traveling to Panama City Beach soon for vacation. Panama City is in Bay county. They haven't had a huge coronovirus problem, but yesterday the numbers jumped dramatically. Here is why from the Bay county covid site.
These numbers are included in the 10,109 record reported yesterday.
The total numbers match at Worldometer, but the daily total is off by one. I don't know why.

This is evidence Florida is including antibody tests in the total and adding in antibody tests from earlier this month.

This British poll taken by an independent group found the likely reason Trump's poll numbers are declining recently

In early June, the politically independent public policy research organization, Democracy Institute,  President Trump was ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden by 48 percent to 47 percent with 5 percent undecided. It was a poll of 1500 likely voters, cell and landline, that was done by an automated system randomizing the questions. They found equal numbers of Republicans and Democrats..As of April 2020, Gallup polling found that 31% of Americans identified as Democrats, 30% identified as Republican, and 36% as Independent. Of course the numbers could have changed in the last three weeks. The polling has. RCP has Biden with a +9.4 lead now.  Most of the news media and many pundits claim Trump's support is collapsing due to the rioting and looting making Americans feel less secure and driving them to Bide. That seems contra logical to me. Biden hasn't even spoken out against the rioters that I can find. Instead, he has supported protestors while mostly hiding in his basement. 

So, what is another possible explanation? The British poll by the Democracy Institute has a strong candidate.

However, only 37 percent of Trump voters would want their friends and family to know how they had voted while 74 percent of Biden supporters are comfortable with it being known, suggesting there is a “silent vote” for the President.
President Trump's supporters have been driven underground by the relentless attacks from the press, liberals and Democrats, but I repeat myself. The Democracy institute poll didn't force those polled to talk to an actual human.This NBC/PBS/Marist Poll did and found Biden up by 8 points. The most recent (2 days ago) Hill-HarrisX poll, which is conducted online, found Biden only up by 4. The NY Times/Siena poll that found Biden up by 14 also uses live interviewers.

The data would seem to suggest the hidden Trump supporter part of the electorate has increased.
