Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, Coronavirus Pt 4: Masks Don’t Protect

by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABIHM

Over the last several months, the battle lines regarding COVID19 have been drawn around the concept of masking. Wearing a mask has become a symbol of staying together, of “doing something” to protect someone from getting sick with this generally mild infection. The behavior of those who obsessively wear a mask, and scream at others who don’t, seem similar to those who vaccinate their children but forbid unvaccinated children in their playdates. I want to respond the same to both groups: “If your mask is protecting you, why are you concerned that I’m putting myself at risk of the flu? ” (similar to “if your vaccines work, what are you worried about?”)

Wearing a mask has almost become nearly a cult-like participation and for some, masking seems to be a new fashion statement. There’s even a name given to those who refuse to wear a mask: bare face. Many governors have made masks mandatory, even if they have no legislative authority to do so.

I’ve spent the last two days combing the medical literature, search for scientific proof that masks do what we are told they do: stop the spread of infection and protect the person who wears the mask from becoming ill. After reviewing more than 50 articles, here’s what I’ve discovered:

  • There are NO randomized, controlled trials (RCT) with verified outcomes that show a benefit to healthcare workers or community members for wearing a mask or a respirator. There is no such definitive study. Likewise, no study exists that shows a benefit from a broad policy to wear masks in public (documented below).
  • Furthermore, if there were any benefits to wearing a mask, because of the blocking power against droplets and aerosol particles, then there should be more benefit from wearing a respirator (N95) compared to a surgical mask. There is not. Neither masks nor respirators protect; cloth coverings are essentially worthless.
  • It should be noted that the surgical masks are primarily designed to protect the environment from the wearer, whereas the respirators are supposed to protect the wearer from the environment. (Balazy, et al).
  • Coronavirus are <0.125 microns in size. Masks and respirators filter particles 0.30 to 0.80 microns in size. Masks cannot possibly work. No bias-free study has ever found a benefit from wearing a mask or respirator in this application.

The pdf document found Here: Masks-Final has detailed references to back up these assertions. It’s time for us to revolt against the tyranny of our “rulers” with science that supports our decision to breathe oxygen, eliminate carbon dioxide and support a healthy immune system.

  2. It took Russia 60 years to throw off the yoke of communism… and it was 20 years in planning. China…Mao died and nothing happened, things got worse…same for Cuba.

    Once a totalitarian regime takes hold its very hard to shake it off. The US is now in the grip of a monster. Try to stab it with your steely knife. Its going to take a concerted effort to kill this beast.

  3. Truly on the verge of hibernation or isolation until this article came along. I was disgusted with anyone wearing a mask and I still am, but after this read, I did not feel so alone. Personally, I have not compromised and worn a mask. I have gone NOT HARASSED into stores with mask only signs…except for Paneras (where I raised Holy Hell) and that may be because they offer drive thru as an alternative. But Walgreens offers a drive thru service yet they allowed me into the store. So consistency is not a quality. To me, that means this is all voluntary on part of the stores. I was quite disappointed when Mike Bara confessed he wore one in Walmart because he wanted a Dr. Pepper. Huh? Did I hear that right? Is that as deep as our conviction goes? Anyway, here’s a really great article from ICH…..hoping Toni has read this or will…..(hey, Toni…remember Dylan’s “Masked and Anonymous”?)

    “How does it feel to be on your own…like a complete unknown…like a ROLLIN’ STONE….”


    1. Woke up this morning to news that my little city within the City of Los Angeles will now be fining those who go out without a mask:

      “The Glendale City Council Tuesday approved a $400 citation for people out in public not wearing a mask. A second violation will come with a $1,000 fine, while a third will carry a $2,000 fine.”

      To me, it’s a little disingenuous for someone like Corbett to encourage people to just refuse. “Nothing’s going to happen!” he exclaims. Not if you’re rich, I suppose. These fines are untenable in a place with a cost-of –living so out of balance that people pay two-thirds of their income on housing. These fines are financial coercion and will make many people poorer, the same people who will bear the brunt of this planned economic collapse. Poor people have no protest voice if they are protesting the wrong thing.

      And now they can count on their neighbors to snitch on them, too.

      The majority of my neighbors have been crying out for this kind of power since March. The mood at the local Nextdoor site is celebratory. Direct quote: “Yay!! Mandatory muzzles for all! FINALLY!” The word ‘muzzles’ apparently holds no irony for my neighbors, who feel personally wounded to see someone without a mask. They will walk out in traffic to avoid an unmasked person, whom they believe to be trailing a deadly ‘COVID cloud.’ They think a mask made out of an old t-shirt can prevent this! They are scientifically illiterate.

      Check out this little public service announcement from Glendale that I’ve attached, calling its residents ‘turds’! The City of Glendale calling its dissenting residents little piles of emoji poop to be reviled by the rest of the usually happy, shiny cartoons. Déclassé and authoritarian. Also notice the attempt to co-opt the concept of herd immunity in which immunity is built by contracting the disease community-wide. The PSA wants to protect the ‘herd’ with masks instead!

      Isn’t it just amazing, and also just as unsurprising, how a century of social engineering – dumbing down education, turning folk medicine into Pharma, forcing participation in a debt economy, etc etc etc! – is now culminating in the biggest con of our lifetimes? Well, except for the Holohoax.

      In comparison, it makes the assassinations in the sixties, or the Sandy Hook-style events, even 9/11, look like small-time operations.

      You can’t say we weren’t prescient about this. We saw it coming, and we saw it get here. Now we are watching it settle in to try and wreak its permanent changes.

      Sometimes I think that our protests are the very thing that is used against us. When one’s rights are qualified by one’s opinions, is an obdurate, subterranean existence all that is left to us? We do have examples; Solzhenitsyn, for one, samizdat, for another. Neither of these are American, of course, but an historical American response has been preempted. Though such a response may be forestalled, if we are lucky, it is not erased. We do have our guns, after all.

      Will, I wonder if you’ve heard this cover of ‘Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands’? This band, Old Crow Medicine Show, did a track-by-track concert of Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde to celebrate the album’s 50 year anniversary.


      Anyway, I like this verse, which reminds me of you, and so many others in the truth community, Corbett included, of course:

      Oh, the farmers and the businessmen, they all did decide
      To show you the dead angels that they used to hide
      But why did they pick you to sympathize with their side?
      Oh, how could they ever mistake you?
      They wished you’d accepted the blame for the farm
      But with the sea at your feet and the phony false alarm
      And with the child of a hoodlum wrapped up in your arms
      How could they ever, ever persuade you?


      1. My entire comment just disappeared and I have not the energy or inclination to dig it up.

        I do have that album…just love it.
        As for the rest of the comment, it’s gone….the nature of today’s Internet.

        Toni…I wish you the best. It’s easier said, then done to get out of Dodge.
        I would sooner die than wear a mask. That’s me…not for everyone.
        Most will succumb. And they have that right.
        I am old enough to take a stand and not give a shite.
        Fight the good fight….do what is best for you and your circumstances. Only YOU know that.
        We could have fought this all together, but this plan has been brilliant and we are now all divided and have little or no way to organize and likely would not if we could.
        They have tapped into a primal fear and that fear will rule the masses.
        If you have a better answer than to resist on an individual basis as best you can, let me know.
        I doubt anyone has at this point.
        Even my own daughter is trying to make a few bucks making masks.

          1. No, that was not it…not a problem, Dr. , It disappeared as I was writing it and I tried to include most of my thoughts in what I just wrote.
            Seems the gist is that we are powerful together and lost apart. THEY know that well….hence the masks, the distancing et al. So, what we are left with is to contend with this situation on an individual basis. As long as we each do something and those who can do more do so, we may prevail. Never surrender even as others give in. If all goes well, we may reach critical mass and go on the offensive. No war is won from a defensive stance.
            For myself, there is no alternative but to resist to my last breath. Others may take a different path.

        1. Subterranean existence doesn’t have to be isolated. I just don’t think we can use the usual communication outlets and practices that were meant to comprise a ‘free’ nation. Public protest is completely compromised and used to profile individuals and direct ‘social movements’. The internet is not just for surveillance but for censorship. As an example, Nextdoor was set up as a neighborhood network, but it is used to roll out social programs and police neighbors by restricting their conversation. All these avenues that were meant to give freedom of expression to citizens are fake. We can’t rely on them.

          Resistance is always self-directed; it doesn’t mean you have to be isolated. You haven’t lived till you’ve stood in a socially distanced line and an anonymous companion makes a sarcastic remark dissing the whole lockdown thing and EVERYONE nods, chuckles and rolls their eyes above their masks, agreeing on the ridiculousness of it all. I don’t think you are as alone as you think.

          As for, “It’s easier said, then done to get out of Dodge,” I’m already gone. Just waiting on the arrangements.

          1. Very good to hear…seems to me CA is a lost cause.

            I do come across a good number of folks who know this is a hoax….but very, very few who will be the first to speak up. I do not have that problem.

  5. So, here is my mask report for today:

    Just got back from town. No masks (except for Paneras…calling the ADA today) means shite. Went into Walgreens….big sign…did not wear a mask…no one said a word. Same with Rose’s. Called up Home Depot because they have a mask policy starting tomorrow and I have an order to pick up.
    The woman said, no problem…they cannot stop you. I have not checked Lowes, since I did not need anything there. I did shop at a local home improvement store called Howlands in Live Oak that has been there for over 100 years. They have no mask policy, but did say THE INSURANCE COMPANIES may force them to require masks in the future.
    I called the ADA in regard to Panera’s refusal to serve me without a mask. After being on hold for 35 minutes, they said there is no regulation regarding mask wearing as long as they PROVIDE REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION.
    Seems that for Paneras, reasonable accommodation would be a drive thru and allowing you to sit at their outside tables in 100 degree weather.
    So much for the ADA. So much for Paneras…it was nice until they muzzled us.
    One must wonder how much money the government gives them to continue with this farce.
    We the People…screwed yet again.

    1. Have never been to Panera. Read about it online. Its all about making people think that its healthy. All the soups come from an industrial factory kitchen. One woman I know of paid $27 for half a sandwich and a small bowl of soup plus a soda drink.
      The one thing about Panera is that your wallet feels healthy….its feather light when you leave.

      I did hear some good news from the South. One large grocery chain advertises NO masks, they want their customers to feel comfortable. I would shop there for sure.


    2. Mask mandates in Winn Dixie start on the 27th. Publix has already mandated them. Lowes started on the 17th and Home Depot tomorrow.

      I have been frequenting Paneras for 5 years. Could be that 27 bucks for soup and sandwich and beverage is in CA….I do not know….but not in Lake City, Fl….the menu is available on line. I usually get there for breakfast and a steak egg and cheese bagel or whatever bread and coffee runs about 8 bucks. I have no problem with the quality and price of food…just the mask policy. The coffee is bottomless and many times you get a free sandwich after a number of visits.
      Of course, prices differ from area to area.

      1. Yes, Panera is more expensive in LA County.

        Didn’t know that Winn~Dixie has reversed their no-mask policy.

        Some say that the world will take decades, if ever, to return to a semblance of its former self.

        Dr. Fauci was not invited to the Trump presser today. I wonder if Trump has finally come to his senses about that creep.

        1. It will take decades if we sit back and accept this damn madness….read that post I made from the Corbett interview re The Politics of Obedience: The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude (free on line…7 bucks from Amazon) …goes back almost 500 years…nothing has changed!

          Fauci…I doubt it….Someone is holding SOMETHING over Trump’s head.

  6. There’s an admission of another debilitating effect of mask wearing right in the California government’s own mandate: hindered verbal communication. In two bullet points it says the following groups of people are exempt from wearing a mask:

    Persons who are hearing impaired, or communicating with a person who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.

    Persons for whom wearing a face covering would create a risk to the person related to their work, as determined by local, state, or federal regulators or workplace safety guidelines.

    By admitting that face covering creates a risk to workers, it appears to concede that you don’t have to be hearing impaired for the ability to see the mouth to be essential for communication.

    And by extension, you don’t have be deaf or in a risky work environment, to rely on the facial cues to which we are all accustomed and that are essential for communication all the time.

    Masking is an attempt to muffle the populace, both literally and figuratively.

    I know everyone knows this, or intuits it. It’s just weird to see it in the government’s own document. From the eight bullets outlining who is exempt, I think anyone could make a case against personally wearing a mask.

    To read the California mandate:


  7. Excellent report. How much more evidence do we need? I’ll be making copies of that pdf and handing them out at Panera’s.
    Is it not remarkable that we now need the governments permission to breathe? If that does not get folks off their couch, I am at a loss.

      1. I really enjoy Kaufman’s calm and simple scientific approach. I doubt there is a main stream MD (including the RAT, Fauci) who would dare confront his conclusions. In essence, it’s precisely what Icke has said who is NOT a doctor and just has much common sense.

        Just as an aside, I attempted to be served in Paneras without a mask. They refused. I raised hell to no avail. They would not sign my document that gave them liability. And all the servers had strategically removed all their name tags…..obviously a new corporate policy. One of the clerks actually had the nerve to say Walmart now requires masks….as if they were the final authority. I cannot repeat what I said at that point.
        Needless to say, I will no longer patronize Paneras.

        1. I’m making a note of places I go that don’t harass me for being face shackle-free and avoiding as much as possible places that do. There are already a couple I won’t be returning to even post-Plandemic.
