Gabrielle Settles has no experience discerning and analyzing information. Most of her “fact checks” involve copying and pasting information provided by the Centers for Disease Control. Her job is simple: make her corporate sponsors happy by targeting and removing content they don’t want to spread online. Social media platforms enable this low-IQ “fact checking” to take place, prohibiting the scientific process and the spread of truth. This deceit and oppression have only prolonged medical tyranny and ineffective “public health measures” that have caused more suffering and death.
Since March, Gabrielle Settles has already by-lined seventy stories for PolitiFact, pushing forth narratives to please her corporate-backed censor. Her work history is lacking and her contributions to journalism are limited. Before she took up her PolitiFact position, she worked as an ‘Office Administrator” for Moody Radio and helped out at a small outfit called “The Weekly Challenger.” She was also a “contributing writer” for “The Power Broker Magazine” which receives virtually no web traffic. Settles routinely puts out anti-Trump tweets that are nothing but left-wing talking points. She has a history of being pro-Democrat, and her bias is well known. Because she has no real reporting background, she naturally took up arms against the National Pulse’s story showing how mask mandates increase mortality rates for covid-19.
The National Pulse story is based off a large study of mask use and mortality data from 35 European countries during the winter of 2020-2021. The conclusion of the study was clear: “The findings presented in this short communication suggest that countries with high levels of mask compliance did not perform better than those with low mask usage in the six-month period that encompassed the second European wave of COVID-19..." The study also found a "moderate positive correlation between mask usage and deaths in Western Europe" which "suggests that the universal use of masks may have had harmful unintended consequences…”
Settles marked this science “False” and National Pulse was censored online for reporting it. To corroborate her “fact check,” Settles used an obscure opinion by Emily Smith from the Milliken Institute for Public Health at George Washington University. Smith did not refute the study with any data or science of her own. She simply claimed this: “I think we can just use common sense to say that when cases are rising, people are more likely to do protective things… You’re more likely to wear a mask when you go out and your city or your country might also have made recommendations or requirements to do those things.” Since Smith is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, it’s obvious why her opinion would be used to shut down the truth about mask mandates and medical tyranny.
The National Pulse also reported on a medical study showing that mask mandates caused 50 percent more deaths compared to NO mask mandates. The study authors hypothesized that masks caused sick individuals to re-inhale virions, leading to increased viral load and a longer duration of illness. This theory, now backed up by data, suggests that “virions spread (because of their smaller size) deeper into the respiratory tract.”
The study concluded: “The most important finding from this study is that contrary to the accepted thought that fewer people are dying because infection rates are reduced by masks, this was not the case…Results from this study strongly suggest that mask mandates actually caused about 1.5 times the number of deaths or ?50% more deaths compared to no mask mandates.”
Politifact is nothing but Big Pharma drivel. They are being used to cover up for crimes against humanity, which includes unlawful mask mandates and the deprivation of human rights. It should be unlawful for opinions to be marketed as "facts" and then used to censor important medical studies and scientific reports.
