Professor David Clements fired for no mask/vaccine & the CDC finds masking kids ineffective

A few months ago New Mexico State University professor David Clements sat down for a Tipping Point New Mexico episode. You can listen to that show here. The episode is more relevant than ever because Clements was recently fired from his job at NMSU for not wearing a mask while teaching. Clements had ALSO stated that he would not be getting vaccinated (all University employees are required to be vaccinated under the Gov.’s new policy).

No one knows how many other government employees in New Mexico are refusing the vaccine, but it COULD create serious issues for the State’s health care system.

You can watch Clements explain his position in the video below.

And, while Gov. Lujan Grisham has mandated that children in ALL schools including private ones wear mask in school, the evidence for this policy is skimpy at best. The CDC studied numerous issues involving the spread of COVID 19 in school. According to the article/study, “requiring student masking was found to not have a statistically significant benefit. In other words, these measures could not be said to be effective.”

“(Numerous) countries, along with the World Health Organization, whose child-masking guidance differs substantially from the CDC’s recommendations, have explicitly recognized that the decision to mask students carries with it potential academic and social harms for children and may lack a clear benefit.”

“Scientists (the author) spoke with believe that the decision not to include the null effects of a student masking requirement (and distancing, hybrid models, etc.) in the summary amounted to “file drawering” these findings, a term researchers use for the practice of burying studies that don’t produce statistically significant results.”

In other words, the CDC didn’t like the results and essentially covered them up.

  1. Great job David. Keep up the good fight. I am a big fan of yours.
    Carl Enomoto, Emeritus Professor of Economics, NMSU

    1. Agreed. Amen and Amen. The Professor is a truth seeker. Thank you for taking a stand at great cost to yourself and family. I’m with you 100%. Keep fighting the good fight!

  2. It’s said that the University said it never fired him and he’s still on their website. He apparently got quite a bit of money donated to him because of his “firing”. Is that true?

    1. I have sent David an email following up on his firing or whatever the status is. I have asked him to be on our podcast. We shall see.

  3. Hi David,
    I feel exactly the same way you do. Thank you for being a hero and standing up against the communist politicians.
    Also, I hope we can have an audit of the 2020 elections in New Mexico and audits of all future elections nationwide.

  4. The tyrants are not data driven; they are tyrants and can not tolerate dissent. We are in trouble as a country, resist , resist, resist.

  5. I watched the video. Since there were no citations for the claims made – such as deaths – I had no way of evaluating their accuracy.
    I also have a concern about the professor using his instructor position as a pulpit to advance his case. While he has free speech rights and the students can stay or leave the class, as some did, the inherent power relationship at best could intimidate a student who would be hesitant to leave. Additionally, the professor puts himself at risk of being accused of biased scoring of a student’s work – positive or negative – based on whether the student stayed or left.
    Considering this risk vs the benefit of persuading a few students regarding his position, one may wonder why take the chance. However, if the video garners a wider audience in the blogasphere, the professor’s “lecture” may have other benefits that make it worth the risk.
