Hypocrisy of Melbourne’s anti-mask movement in one photo: How a witch who is leading an army of conspiracy theorists URGED her fans to wear masks weeks ago – but now thinks they’re a breach of human rights

  • Elizabeth ‘Lizzy’ Rose’ has backflipped after urging people to wear masks in April
  • Now Ms Rose has told fans wearing a mask is a breach of basic human rights
  • The self-proclaimed witch claims to lead an army of conspiracy theorists
  • She believes coronavirus statistics aren’t true and public are being misled
  • Witch claims she only wore a mask for four hours and to get her eyelashes done

A witch and self-proclaimed exorcist has been caught out after an Instagram post of her wearing a PPE mask and urging people to be safe surfaced online.

Elizabeth ‘Lizzy’ Rose’ was being interviewed on the Today show on Tuesday about her controversial push to stop people wearing government-mandated masks in Melbourne after a surge in coronavirus cases.

Australian co-hosts, Allison Langdon and Karl Stefanovic asked if she thought wearing a mask was a breach of her human rights, and she replied ‘I do’.

In her Instagram post from April, Ms Rose told people not to listen to the government while wearing a mask wasn’t compulsory.

‘I urge everyone, the minute you step outside please wear a mask and gloves and don’t listen to the government.’

In just a few months, the self-proclaimed witch has made an abrupt turn, telling people on social media they should refuse to wear a mask, despite the rise in Melbourne’s coronavirus cases and the government’s mandate to wear them.

After the interview, Ms Rose posted on her Facebook page that ‘Karl couldn’t handle the truth’ during the explosive interview.

‘So Karl clearly couldn’t handle the truth and the law and in turn acted like a spoilt, childish brat and shut me down whilst interviewing me this morning, an Interview that HE requested not me.’

She went on to say that clearly her medical exemption (for not wearing a mask) ‘from Karl’s own words is also meaningless, just like the managers comments from Bunnings’.

Ms Rose has also drawn attention for encouraging a group of conspiracy theorists, who meet at a Melbourne gym, to spread the message about not wearing masks.

Ms Rose told the Today show that COVID-19 statistics aren’t true and the ‘level and effect’ reported of COVID-19 was also false.

‘This is my voice. It is about an agenda. It is not only about a virus. Despite the virus in my opinion, being very real. I have never said it was real. It was orchestrated.’

She defended her decision to wear a mask recently to ‘get her eyelashes done’ and for ‘about four hours a few months ago’.

‘The recent mask was a choice. It was a choice. Thisis my point. I did that to prove a point. It is about choice. If you want a mask that is up to you.’

Dubbed a ‘Bunnings Karen’, Ms Rose has previously shared footage of herself abusing staff members at the hardware store who told her to wear a mask due to government guidelines.

Today she explained her argument by saying Florida released information that 90 per cent of cases were misdiagnosed and reduced their total down to 11,000 cases.

‘That is just one example. You had somebody on ‘A Current Affair’ last night saying that they had a positive, then negative and thenpositive, then negative and then positive test.’

Ms Rose also said she believes the virus is ‘being bio chemically engineered intentionally’.

Before the explosive interview was cut short, Ms Rose claimed she used to be a medic but clarified she wasn’t a doctor or a medic.

The group of troublemakers linked to Ms Rose are all believed to be members of ‘The Illuminating Army’ – a group of like-minded conspiracy theorists who believe COVID-19 is a scam and 5G networks are the work of the devil.

Ms Rose, who has been contacted by Daily Mail Australia, claims to be the leader of the army.

Sanders and Schumer call on McConnell to hold hearings to fight election conspiracy theories – KTVZ

Sanders and Schumer call on McConnell to hold hearings to fight election conspiracy theories - KTVZ

[ad_1]

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of New York are calling on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to create a new bipartisan committee focused on election integrity and schedule hearings to reassure Americans over a process President Donald Trump has repeatedly sought to undermine.

There is growing anxiety among Democrats, and some Republicans, that Trump will not only continue to sow doubt over the legitimacy of the coming election but throw the subsequent count into chaos by declaring victory before all the votes can be tallied, including the millions that will arrive by mail.

In a letter to McConnell, Sanders and Schumer quote back the Kentucky senator’s own words, in which he attested to the reliability of mail-in voting by citing its successes in Oregon, Washington and Colorado, which have been using the system for years.

Trump has repeatedly questioned the validity of mail-in voting, promoted conspiracy theories questioning election security, called on supporters to act as unsanctioned “poll watchers,” and suggested that the absence of a clear result by the evening of November 3 would in some way cast doubt on the eventual outcome. Key allies in powerful positions, like Attorney General Bill Barr, have followed suit. Barr has persisted in puffing up a debunked claim that ballots received by mail would somehow strip the sender of their privacy — ignoring well-established safeguards.

By escalating the matter now, Sanders and Schumer are responding to growing concern, in partisan and nonpartisan spaces, that Americans are not adequately prepared for the potential of a longer-than-usual wait for results or Trump’s willingness to short-circuit the democratic process if he smells defeat.

“Democrats and Republicans in Congress must come together to ensure that we have a free and fair election where every vote is cast and counted without intimidation,” Sanders told CNN, “where no one has to put his or her health in danger to cast a ballot, and where we have full confidence in the results.”

The proposed hearings would invite a cross-section of election officials from across the country to testify to the security and reliability of mail-in, early- and in-person voting — subjects on which Sanders and Schumer, again, referenced McConnell’s own words.

“Despite the clear security of our vote-by-mail system, some have continued to undermine it with unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud,” they wrote. “As you have correctly said, people ‘can vote early, you can vote on Election Day, or you can drop it in the mail,’ and that voters should ‘not worry about your vote not counting.’”

The minority leader and Sanders, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, also want more detailed discussion about the fraught hours, or days, after the polls close and a real-time watch of the election horse race potentially swings from one candidate to another.

“We know a number of states may well be counting ballots for a period of time after Election Day, and that those votes may be determinative in this election,” the senators wrote to McConnell. “To avoid disinformation, conspiracy theories, and suspicion about results, we must understand the likely timeline for this process.”

The letter goes on to reference the recent war games-style preparations conducted by a group called the Transition Integrity Project, a bipartisan gathering of operatives and academics that made headlines when some of the outcomes of their exercises — including “both street-level violence and political impasse” — were reported on in late July.

“A bipartisan group of experts and officials have studied multiple scenarios where the outcome of the election was not immediately known. Some of these scenarios resulted in unrest and even violence,” Sanders and Schumer wrote, suggesting the Senate should elevate similar discussions and familiarize the public with the uncertainties ahead. “We would like to hear from the most knowledgeable people in the country as to how we can do everything possible to make sure that the election and the period afterward is secure and peaceful.”

HHS official sorry for conspiracy theory video

[ad_1]

HHS supported Caputo, with a statement that called him a critical, integral part of the presidents coronavirus response, leading on public messaging as Americans need public health information to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic.

There was no immediate statement from the White House.

Attempts to reach Caputo were unsuccessful.

On Capitol Hill, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., called on Azar to fire Caputo, accusing the spokesman of trying to interfere with CDC reports to the medical and scientific community, as well as the public at large. And Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called on Azar himself to resign, citing interference with the CDC as one example of what he termed the administration’s failures.

Officials at CDC have privately complained of recent efforts by political appointees at main HHS to try to edit or press for changes in the agency’s weekly MMWR publications, a go-to resource for public health professionals.

MMWR articles are technical, but they reveal telling details. One published earlier this year noted that while Trump’s travel restrictions dramatically reduced travel from China in February, nothing was being done at that time to restrict travel from Italy and Europe, where the coronavirus was spreading widely and rapidly. Analysis of virus samples from hard-hit New York in March suggested it was introduced there from Europe and other parts of the U.S., the CDC article reported.

Caputo is an unswerving Trump loyalist. His recent book, The Ukraine Hoax, claims the presidents phony impeachment was rooted in a vast conspiracy.
