BEND, OREGON –It is a common sense fact that if you cover your nose and mouth with anything, breathing is inhibited. But nowadays, common sense must be proven by scientific studies. And even then, said common sense is dismissed as “conspiracy theory” and/or “disinformation” by COVID zealots.
Dr. Lindsay Bottoms heads the Centre for Research in Psychology and Sports Science at the University of Hertfordshire (England). She has both a Ph.D and a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology. Dr. Bottoms competes in fencing despite being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 14.
She did an informal experiment last year to clarify common sense. It found that wearing a COVID mask under her fencing mask during a three-minute, high-intensity treadmill workout dropped atmospheric oxygen inside the masks to 17%. That is well below the normal 21% at sea level. Her study also found that carbon dioxide levels were 3% inside the masks, double the established 1.5% threshold set by U.K. health authorities. The experiment concluded that any workout longer or harder than three minutes with masks would result in dizziness, headaches and/or worse.
Ohio state representative Nino Vitale, R-Urbana, performed a similar experiment demonstrating the obvious, common sense effects of obscuring your nose and mouth with COVID masks.
Masks are political symbols and signs of obedience. They are even fashion statements pushed by Hollywood and mainstream media in 2021. There’s absolutely no benefit to wearing them other than, like the experimental shots, social media clout from the Fauci crowd.

Ms. Maggie Williams almost became a casualty of this very strange, very dangerous mask agenda. And mainstream media ignored the story entirely.
An unnecessary, scary moment
Summit High School is a track-and-field powerhouse. The Bend, Oregon school has won 17 state titles since 2005 between its boys and girls’ squads. Track-and-field was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19. Thus the athletes were anxious to get out there and re-establish their dominance in the sport.
But Governor Kate Brown issued her very dangerous mask mandate last June, requiring masks for everyone over age five, both indoors and outdoors. The mandate also requires masks for people working out at high-intensity in gyms and athletes while competing. It took an extremely scary moment for Brown and Oregon health officials to at least re-consider common sense.
Ms. Williams is an elite athlete. She was not only gunning for a victory in the 800-meter event (two laps around the track), but also the school record. Young Maggie got off to a blazing start. There was no other runner in the picture as she was about to cross the finish line. But Ms. Williams lost consciousness and collapsed. Her momentum carried her over the finish line, breaking the school record with a time of 2:08:45. She beat the former record of 2:10:54 set in 2019 by two full seconds despite the dystopian hindrance over her face that caused her to collapse.
Complete oxygen debt. I’ve been doing this for 31 years, I’ve never seen anybody basically lose consciousness. I’ve never seen that in the way it happened with Maggie. Unfortunately in Oregon we have to follow the OHA (Oregon Health Authority). And the OHA is not reasonable. I would like those people to come out and run an 800 with a mask on.
Ms. Williams said she didn’t know she won the race or that she broke the school record until a few minutes later. She said she felt “super-dizzy” and eventually lost consciousness due to oxygen deprivation. Watch a report from NewsChannel 21 in Bend.
Governor Brown revised her mask rules after the incident. But the changes are nothing short of comical. Athletes in non-contact sports like tennis, golf and track are now “allowed” to remove the face coverings during competition as long as they are six-feet apart. Distance runners must wear face coverings at the beginning of the race, but can remove them “once they spread out.” It is unclear if football and basketball players must wear masks. Oregon is the only state that requires masks for distance runners, according to Oregon Live.
Oregon is perhaps the third-most dystopian state after California and New York when it comes to COVID dystopia. This disheartening photo comes directly from the Bend School District’s website.
This mask stuff is sheer lunacy at this point. Erin Pein, a school nurse in Stafford Township, New Jersey, was suspended by the district for saying forcing kids to wear masks for seven hours per day is child abuse. Parents in Vail, Arizona shut down a school board meeting in late April and demanded the mask mandate be rescinded.
Masks are going to cause deaths, whether in athletic competition or from Americans tired of it. It appears that the Joe Biden/Fauci crowd simply enjoys wearing masks and needling people (no pun intended) who do not comply with their fetish. Masks are not normal and never will be. Stay vigilant and protect your friends and loved ones.
