San Diego School Board returns to mask mandates, parents opposed should get refunded taxes

Despite numerous concerns and multiple studies showing the adverse effects of children wearing masks during COVID lockdowns, the San Diego Unified School District Board voted this week to return to indoor mask mandates, according to numerous reports.

District school board President Sharon Whitehurst-Payne agreed with the decision made by the board, stating in an interview with Good Morning San Diego that “they really should wear the mask” and adding that students who feel uncomfortable with the mask “at that point, just not return” to school.

The comments come after the district announced that students enrolled in summer school will be required to wear masks indoors, as reported by Fox News. 

However, the district has yet to determine whether there will be a mask mandate for the fall semester. So far, the mandate is only for Summer school. The district said they will  “continue to monitor the COVID-19 community level according to the CDC and County data and we will communicate if there are any changes in two weeks.”

Whitehurst-Payne said that for parents concerned about the possibility of a mask mandate in the fall, there are “some options” such as “school that’s online.” What a joke. We already know the adverse affects of forcing children to be home schooled when  parents were unprepared for home schooling

The San Diego School Board has been hinting for weeks that mask mandates would return and opponents have of mask mandates have expressed outrage over the decision. I’m one of them.

Rep Darrell Issa, who represents San Diego , told me Tuesday, “the forced masking of students has done extraordinary harm to millions of kids – and we are only now beginning to understand the true scope of the damage.”

“Rather than protect our students from harm, the San Diego school district is hurting them all over again. I stand with parents and families who know this must be stopped.”

Over the weekend Issa tweeted that the mandates put in place are “unsupported by science and contradicts common sense. We will fight this and defeat it again.”

I certainly hope so.

The adverse effects of being forced to wear a mask or forced into unprepared homeschooling on children is well documented. For example, a recent Harvard University study revealed the large gaps in outcomes between schools that spent less than three weeks in remote learning and those that relied on online schooling for much of the pandemic, as reported by Fox News.

“Students in high-poverty schools that were remote for more than half of 2020-21 would be expected to see a 5% decline in average earnings over their career, given past relationships between test scores and earnings,” wrote Thomas Kane, a professor of education at Harvard and one of the authors of the study. “That may not sound like much, but when calculating losses for all 50 million students in K-12 education in the U.S., it would amount to a $2 trillion decline in lifetime earnings.”

Fox News host Steve Hilton of The Next Revolution, posted Tuesday on Twitter his concerns and disdain in regard to the school board’s decision.

“Cloth masks do not work,” said Hilton, a California resident, who warned that San Diego may just be the beginning. “Why do these bureaucrats ignore the science?” Hilton is also

I believe that if the San Diego School Board is mandating mask wearing in its schools and threatening that those who oppose it not return, then the school board must return the equivalent amount of the taxes being paid to the school system to the parents.  These funds should be used by the parents for a school of their choice.

It should be pulled directly from the school budget and parents in San Diego who oppose these mandates should fight for these rights.

The adverse harm of children wearing masks have also been documented.

“The possible psychological harm of widespread masking is an even greater worry,” stated one Wall Street Journal. “Facial expressions are integral to human connection, particularly for young children, who are only learning how to signal fear, confusion and happiness. Covering a child’s face mutes these nonverbal forms of communication and can result in robotic and emotionless interactions, anxiety and depression. Seeing people speak is a building block of phonetic development. It is especially important for children with disabilities such as hearing impairment.”

We should not let what happened in San Diego infect the rest of our nation. We know better now. We have the vaccines and we do not need to put our children through this horror show again. Hilton is right “cloth masks don’t work.” That my friends is a scientific fact.

Maybe the San Diego School Board should spend their time reading the science instead of fear mongering.

As for the parents in San Diego, fight back and don’t let this school board abuse your children.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
