Back when some states were demanding that student athletes wear masks while playing sports, I was concerned that the athletic associations were supporting, rather than fighting against, these mandates. So I looked into the funding of the Michigan High School Athletic Association and found that two of their major donors are large hospital systems in the state - Sparrow and Henry Ford Health System.

Can we safely assume that this situation is similarly affected by funding partners?

Factcheckers are criminal organizations. Just like the companies and NGOs that sponsor them.

The link in your quote (following the second paragraph) from nfhs.org doesn't work, and when entered brings up a 404 error. Where does the quote indicate that "2020/21 values were imputed by 2020/21 values"?

Let’s look at specifics on the fake news, going all the way back to NY Slimes Pulitzer Prize winner Walter " I don't see no stinkin' starving kulaks in Stalin's Ukraine" Duranty (perhaps around 5 – 6 million were starved to death by Stalin in his Holodomor) to Lincoln "I have seen the future in Stalin's USSR, and it works" Steffens to fake Nobel Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu, accidentally outed by another leftist, to another NY Slimes wunderkind, fiction writer Jayson Blair, who resigned in 2003 after he was outed for stories—some front page—that were fabricated or plagiarized, to Dan "I found a memo!" Rather, to Brian "I was shot down in a helicopter in Iraq in 2003" Williams, and the list goes on and on and on... such as Walter Cronkite telling us (regardless of how you felt about its rightness) that the Viet Nam war was being lost during the Tet offensive, while at the same time North Viet General Giap admitted later on in his memoirs that all was lost unless the American public was lied to and told they were losing, to Mikey Isikoff /Newsweek’s infamous May 9, 2005 issue that cited some “unnamed source” saying the Qu’ran was trashed at Guantanamo – and was later proven false, but not after many were killed in the rioting that ensued overseas (“no matter if people die… as long as their political ends are met, right?).

And speaking of 9/11, don’t forget the famous – and utterly idiotic – tweet from the NYT that said “Airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center.” This tweet was so intellectually vapid it deleted it shortly after. (Reminiscent of “guns kill people” articles… as if guns grow legs and fingers, and run around shooting people with no human operators. And don’t forget Vietnam reporter Peter Arnett and his famed supposed quote from a US officer that I grew up on, “We had to destroy the village to save it” – except that this was later proven to be – wait for it! – another media fake, and when pressed he never could provide evidence of who, exactly, said it. Or perhaps you prefer Charles Jaco of CNN “reporting live from Saudi Arabia” in the 1990” Iraq war…. or should I say, in front of a fake green screen. If you need a refresher, from a linked clip is a video of the broadcast (which I saw myself )https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isMtxbPdvzg. The fake news doesn’t care if you see this now (which is why it is allowed on co-opted Youtube), as this has already gone down the Orwellian memory hole of the general public so they don’t care. Only I suggest you should care, as they continue to do this stuff today, only even more.

Or think the first Gulf War where the MSM showed ''thousands'' in attendance when Saddam Hussein's statue likeness was toppled by the jubilant masses who were so thrilled by the American liberators.. At least, that's what the camera angles made it look like. In actuality, there were a few dozen individuals there, possibly paid and/or crisis actors, and a rope was attached to an unseen US military Humvee that actually did the work.

In fact, in my old home province of British Columbia, the New York Times even published a recipe for our beloved Nanaimo bars (a treat of custard, sugar, coconut, walnuts, cocao, etc.) that was – you guessed it – wrong. Funny, but problem is, this is just symptomatic of what the New York Times actually is.

.... or think 2022, where “fact checker” USA Today was forced to delete 23 articles over fabricated sources. USA Today’s breaking news reporter Gabriela Miranda fabricated sources and misappropriated quotes for stories, the news outlet confirmed on Thursday, after being forced to conduct an internal audit after getting an ‘external correction request’ on one of its published stories,” reports Breitbart. The 23 articles which were removed for not meeting the paper’s “editorial standards” included pieces on the Texas abortion ban, anti-vaxxer content and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Here's the link https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2022/06/16/usa-today-audit-reporter/7647731001/ Activist Post wrote: “The audit revealed that some individuals quoted were not affiliated with the organizations claimed and appeared to be fabricated. The existence of other individuals quoted could not be independently verified. In addition, some stories included quotes that should have been credited to others.” Activist also cited more gems from the toilet paper of record: “The newspaper was also lambasted by critics after it “fact checked” as “true” claims that an official Trump 2020 t-shirt features a “Nazi symbol”. In February last year, the news outlet published an op-ed which denounced Tom Brady for refusing to walk back his previous support for Donald Trump and for being “white.” The newspaper also had to fire their “race and inclusion” editor Hemal Jhaveri after she falsely blamed the Boulder supermarket shooting on white people.”

Need something more recent? After the Soros violent Maidan revolution overthrew a democratically elected government in Ukraine, and installed their puppet Poroshenko, later succeeded by Zelensky, who had so embarrassing whoppers as the Ghost of Khiev, who shot down you-name-the-number of Russian jets alone in the early part of the Ukraine war, or the Heroes of Snake Island, who cursed the Russian navy and fought to their deaths… only the truth is that that meekly surrendered, then later were exchanged for Russian prisoners. But no matter! The Deep State will fight Russia down to the last Ukrainian, as Sen. Rand Paul said. And in 2022, Twittergate blew up, showing the government utterly suppressed the truth on Twitter using Twitter staff, bots, etc., about Covid policy, as Strive Asset Management founder Vivek Ramaswamy noted here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLPgI1u_Hwg&t=128s

Then there was the 2022 Ukraine war, where 4 star general Barry R. McCaffrey/all star doofus on MSNBC posted a video game as “footage” from the war. Here’s his tweet https://twitter.com/BecketAdams/status/1526315644211318787?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1526316399337127936%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es2_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bizpacreview.com%2F2022%2F05%2F17%2Fretired-general-msnbc-contributor-shares-war-footage-that-turned-out-to-be-from-a-video-game-1239030%2F but of course now long since deleted. In the original tweet, McCaffrey wrote: “Russian aircraft getting nailed by UKR missile defense. Russians are losing large numbers of attack aircraft. UKR air defense becoming formidable.” In fact, the footage is reportedly from a video game called Arma 3, which is an “open-world” military game created in 2013. Even worse for McCaffrey, the game’s title can be clearly seen in the video’s description.

Average mask hole size in the masks you see everyone wearing is around 100 microns, the virus 0.1 micron, a thousand times smaller. Here is a doctor illustrating vaping through a mask https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJpS_jajub0 I understand even the N-95s have slightly larger holes than the virus as well, but even if not, with exhalation valve you would still spread your bad guys to others.

People should take of their masks and just wear a patch over their mouth with the words "Hi! I'm stupid."

And no, chain link fences don't stop mosquitoes either.

And oh yeah. OceansAsia, back in Dec. 7, 2020, estimated that 1.56 billion face masks may have entered the world’s oceans in 2020, based on a global production estimate of 52 billion masks manufactured that year, and a loss rate of 3%, which is conservative. https://oceansasia.org/covid-19-facemasks/ Extrapolate yourself to today’s date. Visual Capitalist said 1.6 billion masks went into the ocean in 2020, https://www.visualcapitalist.com/1-6-billion-disposable-masks-entered-our-oceans-in-2020/

My property manager just had 25k worth of sinus surgery due to mask wearing.

Personally, I read quite a bit of Dr. Stephen Porges and airline Capt. Tom Bunn, the latter of whom does work with fearful flyers. Fearful flyers and Covid? In short, all humans read micro-expressions in the face of others to get a sense of safety, truth telling, and more. See Bunn’s recent work Panic Free Pandemic Workbook – Exercises to Calm Pandemic -Related Fear, Anxiety and Claustrophobia. In short, masks are destroying the ability to read micro-expressions, and thus gain a sense of security – particularly in children - in spades. All this as, what can only be considered legally culpable negligence, the American Academy of Pediatrics on Aug, 2021 removed its page encouraging “face time” with infants. https://twitter.com/politicalmath/status/1428088304294051845 Yes, Big Pharma and Big Money go a long ways, don’t they! Here’s the original before it goes down the fasco-Marxist memory hole, cited from Twitter here: https://twitter.com/politicalmath/status/1428088304294051845

I checked the facts, the facts I checked, but failed to check the facts I wrecked.

I wish everyone would call out anything that goes against common sense principles. Such as the fact checkers never allow any correspondence. They are saying that they are the sole arbiter of facts. Why do we give this a pass in so many things? I know the answer to that also - it's because we have been bred to live by law and not by principle. Law sets it all down on paper (and by the serpents no less) but principles are perennial. Principles like freedom of speech to everyone (not just some), body autonomy, leaving a place like you found it (or better), taking care of the animals and the earth, etc. Everyone is trained to rely on law and this is a complete illusion and it's coming that cause-and-effect will win because that is reality, not artificial constructs written by some select few.
