How And Why To Use The CFFS "No Mask" Card
If you are denied entry to a commercial or public building because you are not wearing a mask, then you have a duty to make an appeal to grant access based on a) your right to make your own personal health choices and b) your Constitutional rights under the First Amendment. Wearing the CFFS "No Mask" card is great tool to accomplish both.
The Big Picture
CFFS No Mask card wearers are making a statement that they do not comply with politically-mandated face mask orders. Wearing a mask has become a symbol of submission to the government as well as to peer pressure. Wearing a CFFS No Mask card is the anti-symbol. CFFS has distributed thousands of No Mask cards around America and its unique color and symbology is easily recognized from a distance. Wear it whenever you leave your home and make a point to engage in a good discussion about it with a few people every week. Be a good ambassador for the First Amendment and freedom to make your own health choices.
Why Wear The CFFS No Mask card
There are two reasons to wear the CFFS No Mask card.
- You are exercising your Constitutional right to free speech and the First Amendment. Mandates to wear a face mask and to practice social distancing violate your First Amendment rights to Free Speech and Peaceable Assembly.
- You are exercising your right and responsibility to be the sole judge of your own health. If you believe that wearing a mask is detrimental to your health, or if you have an underlying condition that would prevent you from wearing one, then you are opting to not wear one.
Make an Appeal
Making an appeal should be a calm explanation of your position without becoming argumentative or combative. If entry is simply not possible, then you have a choice to make: either walk away or wear a mask for a short period. If you are entering a hospital to visit a loved one, for instance, they will likely not let you in without a mask. For commercial businesses that stubbornly deny entry, you can take your business elsewhere.
Do not threaten personnel with huge fines over violations from the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). With regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, neither agency is enforcing their own regulations to protect the health of American citizens and workers and the courts are not currently interested in forcing them to do so.
The reverse side of the CFFS No Mask card is printed with the First Amendment. With every interaction, you have the opportunity to share what the First Amendment says, why it is important to all Americans and how wearing a mask is a violation of your Free Speech.
CFFS has posted several documents from authoritative sources on the ineffectiveness of face masks to stop the spread of a virus as well as documents showing the health risks of wearing a mask:
- Masks Are Neither Effective Nor Safe: A Summary Of The Science (Dr. Colleen Huber)
- Why Masks Don’t Work Against COVID-19 (Dr. Denis Rancourt, PhD)
- Blaylock: Face Masks Pose Serious Risks To The Healthy (Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD)
- The Miserable Pseudo-Science Behind Face Masks, Social Distancing And Contact Tracing (Patrick Wood)
Furthermore, CFFS has posted several articles on the unconstitutional nature of COVID-19 mandates:
- Regulatory Gouging Hits First Amendment (Patrick Wood)
- Vive La Résistance! Tyrants Get Busted By Courts, Law Enforcement (Patrick Wood)
- Lawsuit Against Cuomo Alleges 'Bloodless Coup' Has Stripped New Yorkers of Their Constitutional Rights (Megan Fox)
- Freedom of Religion Violated By COVID-19 Restrictions (KrisAnne Hall)
It is the responsibility of each No Mask card wearer to learn the facts and practice articulating them before getting into a confrontational situation. Nevertheless, the objective should never be to provoke an argument but rather to stimulate an objective and friendly discussion. If that is simply impossible, then be prepared to walk away.
When you are wearing your CFFS No Mask card, you will find that people often ask you where you got it. Please direct them to the CFFS website. You may also carry an extra card to give to someone who really wants and needs it, but encourage them to go to the CFFS website to join. The CFFS URL is printed on the card and on the lanyard.
Some CFFS No Mask card wearers have donated and asked for several extra cards just in case they have an opportunity to give them away. Some of those ask the recipient for a $5 reimbursement and then come back to CFFS and request more cards.
Many Americans are simply fed up with draconian government mandates to wear face masks, social distance, shutter businesses and regulate every aspect of life outside their home. Whenever our First Amendment rights are in conflict with an Executive Order issued by a government official, the First Amendment must always take priority. Since the government is not currently protecting the First Amendment, it is critical for American citizens to stand firm in the exercise of these rights.

Well, things on this notice board would appear to be a little quiet since the CDC’s momentous announcement 4 months ago, and we, here in New York City, are now confronting new levels of bioweapon-related coercion with our over-reaching Mayor’s Key to NYC program. However, I did want to report that the muzzles have definitely retreated; one can enter probably 80% of the businesses in my neighborhood without hindrance, and that has definitely improved my quality of life. I would likewise estimate that 80% of people are not wearing them outside, despite the dreaded Delta “variant”; this is a marked contrast to a year ago, and in the wake of this, human kindness and communication have also returned.
On another note, our transit authority has now stepped up enforcement of the CDC’s illegal dictates regarding public transportation, and I have not ridden the subway since that announcement (traveled to the last protest in Times Square both ways without difficulty). Prior to that, however, nobody appeared to care what you did. I will have to see what happens; other colleagues in the resistance have reported that there does not seem to be an increased enforcement presence.
But, in any case, I encourage all of you to continue to resist these illegal, unconstitutional mandates, and claim your freedoms back!!
Just a quick report once again from Manhattan, where the mask requirements are magically evaporating in the wake of the CDC announcement more than a week ago. Today I made a point of entering a coffee shop that wouldn’t serve me months ago, and that I have since boycotted … no mask signs, no mask, no problem. The grocery store down the block where I had a huge and ugly confrontation a couple of months ago … once again, no signs, no mask, no problem. Thus far, despite Emperor Cuomo’s Excelsior Passport, no local businesses in our neighborhood seem inclined to confront people who are not wearing the hated muzzles to inquire about their bioweapon status (which is, of course, against the law) … the signs are disappearing (I don’t have to tear them down now), and the antagonism with them. I do believe that this has been a turning point, although the struggle is far from over.
I hope that all of you are reclaiming your rights as citizens to go where and when you please without hindrance, whatever the “local” ordinances might be, and claim those services that you desire. Godspeed. mf
Update: the “new normal” is on the retreat, the muzzles are on their way out … here’s a report from the trenches here in the Northeast:
A day trip to Danbury, CT; of course, CT immediately ditched its mask requirement after the CDC announcement.
The sea-change actually began at our Avis car rental dealer in our neighborhood; we both walked in, bold as brass, no muzzles, fully prepared to encounter resistance … nothing was said.
Rampant normality was likewise very much in evidence in Danbury; we visited Traitor Joe’s, as was our wont before all this lunacy began, and it was as if COVID never happened. No mask signs, no social distancing, no guards at the door, no questions … people couldn’t have been nicer; the vast majority of the customers were, naturally, still sporting their slave regalia, but not everyone. An older man wearing a mask passed by me, and patted me on the shoulder!! Don’t quite know why … a great victory for individual dignity and freedom, even if most in these parts don’t want to reclaim them. Their loss …
Even though, as you know, I have refused to comply with any of these muzzle mandates for more than a year, and have had no compunction about confronting grocery store and other personnel in defense of my refusal to comply, I was slightly hypervigilant in TJ’s, after seeing some of those horrific videos of their militant employees online. But it’s like they just switched off that Nazi stuff once the CDC pulled the rug out from under Cuomo and the other dictatorial governors … same thing in the shoe store, and also at the dentist’s office (and we are supposed to wear the face diapers in medical establishments, according to the CDC). They took my partner’s temperature, but didn’t bother me in the slightest. Again, everyone was extremely cordial.
As I’ve opined to you and others, now that “fully bioweaponed” individuals can go back to their normal lives, more or less … it does seem as if it’s “game over” for the muzzles here in the States. The previously willing collaborators in the tyranny no longer know who the enemy is, and they are opting out. Here in our neighborhood it’s still pretty much wall-to-wall sheeple, but elsewhere, in Central Park, walking home from the car rental agency this evening, in the bars and restaurants, the toxic “new normal” is on the retreat.
The battle’s not over, but this was a major concession by those pulling the strings, and a victory for civil liberties. As I’ve said, this particular “horse” is out of the barn, and I don’t honestly think they will be able to corral it again. Bioweapon passports, which are supposedly in the offing, are more or less DOA, with legislation being passed against them (even though New York has its limited Excelsior Pass; won’t impact me).
So, I hope that you will take heart from this account, and have the audacity to demand that those who have shunned you now, once again, treat you as a human being. They really have no other choice, although some may resist.
Blessings to all, mf
Greetings once again from New York, where, in the wake of the CDC announcement and concessions last week, all “fully vaccinated”, i.e., against stupidity, citizens are now free to do as they damn well please (as I have all along, although I must admit that it has not been fun to constantly gird my loins for conflict whenever I leave the apartment).
As I’ve said to several people, they’ve let the horse out of the barn … game over. This pathetic “mask-erade”, this COVID charade, is going the way of the dinosaurs, at least if I have anything to say about it. The distinction between un-bioweaponed, i.e., healthy, people, and those who have, for whatever reason, submitted themselves to this heinous experiment, is no longer readily apparent to those collaborators who have aligned themselves with this neo -totalitarian dictatorship. It is a great victory for freedom, in my estimation, and I hope that all will be heartened by these revelations.
For example, my partner, Mary E, and I will be driving on Thursday to Darien, CT (where they have dropped their statewide mask mandates), and I have every intention of walking into the local Traitor Joe’s to do some shopping; of course, they have only dropped their muzzle requirement for the v’d, but they will be powerless to keep me out. I have no obligation to provide them with any documentation regarding my health, and they can, in a short and pithy phrase, suck it.
Join me in reclaiming our public and private spaces from the minions of this illegal medical tyranny!! Godspeed. mf
Thanks so much for your kind response to my most recent post; I feel that it’s so important that we share these stories of defiance in the face of this tyranny so that others will realize that these illegal dictates can be thwarted, and pluck up their courage to resist.
While I have never relished living in New York (came here to pursue an opera career many years ago), things here in our neighborhood on the Upper East Side appear more and more normal, at least in levels of activity, but the near ubiquitous muzzles are certainly a blight on the landscape. I saw quite a few people without the masks today, especially in Central Park. NYS is expected to reopen completely very soon, and I think it’s only a matter of time before all the states will have to cave on these lockdown restrictions. That being said, my patience with these brain-dead zombies wanes with each passing day, and my contempt for their cowardice is barely held in check.
My biggest complaint, at this juncture, is not being able to travel (won’t fly ever again if I am expected to comply with any of these COVID restrictions; will drive everywhere); we normally traveled and taught seminars 80% of the time, a good deal of them internationally. At this point, I would like a change of scenery, and a break in the routine. But, otherwise, I am living my life exactly as I see fit; I remain creative and full of joy — with an utter lack of fear.
I applaud your courage, as well, as I have read your accounts of your skirmishes with these cowards and collaborators. I’m envious that you have more contact with nature there in the UP, as Central Park is our only such resource here; but it is beautiful, especially in the spring.
I send my very best, and thank you again for your support. mf
Hello again from the frontlines in New York!! I trust that all of you remain well, despite the attempts by everyone in authority to argue that everyone is a disease vector.
I wanted to share my most recent experience with the illegal mask mandates here in New York. I remain astonished at the absolute knee-jerk compliance with these dictatorial fiats from governors and mayors, and the arrogance of local merchants who believe that they are exempt from local health department guidelines which exempt people from wearing these muzzles who have a valid medical concern about their health.
Yet another grocery store, at which we have shopped during the entire bogus pandemic, attempted to give me the bum’s rush and deny me service yesterday. I flashed my copy of the NYS Department of Health’s guidelines at a couple of people, and a cashier said that I would have to talk to the manager. I responded by telling him that the manager could come and talk to me. Shall I mention that the store was largely empty?
They directed me to another checkout line, and one of the cashiers attempted to bully me into leaving, standing toe to toe with me (so much for social distancing) saying that I would not be permitted to purchase my groceries. I began reading the document to him, and he endeavored to fob me off by saying that they were not subject to those guidelines. I inquired, “Oh, are you an essential business, or no?” I then began reading the document very quietly, and said that I would not be leaving. I suggested that he go ahead and call the police.
Some male zombie nearby chimed in at this point, and said that I was trying to provoke a lawsuit, and I told him that I was endeavoring to pay for my groceries, and to mind his own damn business.
Finally, the manager came over, and I more or less read him the riot act, inquiring as to why, after 13 months, we were still expected to comply with this ridiculous BS, now that everyone’s vaccinated (not me, not ever), etc. I informed him that we’ve been shopping there for years, and we can certainly take our 1,000s of dollars of business elsewhere in the future. He agreed that he would check me out.
Having received my due as a human being, I engaged him in conversation, asked his name, attempted to shake his hand (he demurred), and we finished the transaction amiably. Here’s the kicker: he is a former cashier, who recognized me (and remembered my partner, Mary E). He said that management is adamant about their policy, and I said that it is illegal and discriminatory. I thanked him graciously for treating me like a person, and took my leave. I said that he would be seeing me again, a loyal customer who has consistently supported them during these extraordinary times.
I won’t burden you with the details of yet another female zombie’s attempt, on my way out of the store, to shame me for refusing to comply; it is all extremely tedious. I don’t know what the manager, L, thought, about me (nor the other employees), but I really don’t care; I will be sharing the details of this exchange with the management of this store, although I will not name names.
However, my point is, as ever: don’t comply, don’t back down, don’t let these collaborators, these good Germans, deprive you of your dignity and your rights as a free citizen. I can’t wait for the day when I can walk into businesses such as these with a bunch of maskless colleagues, and see what they think they can do. As I have seen repeatedly, they are more or less powerless against one person determined not to yield.
Happy spring, and keep fighting the good fight!! mf
Michael Fiacco for posting the nih.gov link about face diapers.
I am sending to everyone!
Finally in your face with this crap straight from the horses mouth 😁
Hello again from Manhattan, where it’s a lovely spring day, and the zombies are in full bloom!! I wanted to share the following with you; make sure that you examine the embedded table, which you could print off/send to others:
I came across this article on one of my Telegram channels yesterday (perhaps some of you have seen it); it is on the web site of the National Institute of Health (November 2020): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7680614/
It sums up the health impacts and consequences quite succinctly; share with all your maskelite friends!! M (unfortunately I can’t attach the jpg of it here)
PS: And, of course, they don’t mention the mysterious fibers!!
I will not wear a mask. Plus I have health issues. I found the lanyard to be helpful in the beginning…however being I live in Florida I have not had to use it anymore.
There was someone in Ft Lauderdale area that just did a million mask March with mask burning and protests last week. I’m hoping to attempt the same in my area Tampa Bay!
To Freedom 🇺🇸
Even though our state is declared “open” for bidness, the slaves scream for more safety and protection from “the government”, our oppressors.
I go nowhere without my lanyard, but I am still disturbed by the diapered faces of the compliant slaves.
Who needs an actual virus when a story about them works far better?
