Monkeypox Vaccines, Brought to You By Joe Biden
Monkeypox Vaccines, Brought to You By Joe Biden
Does the idea of monkeypox strike fear into the depth of your soul? Are you living in dread of becoming of victim of this disease du jour? No? Well, Joe Biden wants to protect us from an outbreak, so he just ordered 500,000 more vaccines that prevent monkeypox. This is in addition to a $120 million order for smallpox vaccines the administration placed in May.
Biotech company Bavarian Nordic produces the new vaccine, Jynneos, which a patient receives in two doses. In addition, the Biden administration has the option to purchase $180 million more worth of Jynneos.
Because of this, Bavarian Nordic is doing a Happy Dance. As Paul Chaplin, president and CEO, said in a statement:
“This marks a significant milestone in our long-standing partnership with the U.S. government to ensure availability of life-saving vaccines for the entire population.”
Someone’s gonna get rich from this, just like Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson with all those Covid vaccines.
In a word, no. Not unless you’re a man between the ages of 20 to 50 who has had sex with another man who has monkeypox. Or if you’ve been to places in Africa that are having outbreaks.
Monkeypox is not spread via the air, like Covid. It’s also a DNA virus, so it doesn’t mutate as efficiently as an RNA virus. Moreover, its R-naught value is less than one, which means that it’s not highly contagious to the general population. There’s no asymptomatic spread of this disease, either, which means that a patient must already have the disgusting rash before they can share it with you.
Plus, those of us of a (ahem) certain age who had smallpox vaccines as children already have a certain amount of immunity against monkeypox, anyway.
Take 20 minutes to watch this video by an entertaining doctor who goes by “ZDogg MD” (real name Zubin Damania) as he explains this disease. And yes, he’s a real doctor with Stanford roots — like Drs. Scott Atlas and Jay Bhattacharya (what is it about Stanford and doctors with common sense?).
But the Biden administration is sounding the alarm about monkeypox. After all, as of now there are several dozen cases in the US, and Covid is waning rapidly. We gotta find another disease to scare the bejeebers out of everyone — stat!
Leave it to the Centers for Disease Control to start forcing masks on people to stop the spread of monkeypox. Last week the CDC updated its travel advisory, advising the public to keep washing their hands and start wearing a mask again to avoid catching the disease.
Yes, you read that correctly. Wear a mask to keep getting from infected by a disease that isn’t airborne, anyway.
Now the CDC has backed off, because earlier in the week, they removed part of the notice “because it caused confusion.”
But wait! Enter the biggest Panic Porn Pusher of them all — Eric Feigl-Ding. On Saturday morning he demanded that the CDC reverse course, because the UK says monkeypox is airborne!
Wow—Someone needs to hear this (cough @CDCgov)—
⚠️Britain has listed #monkeypox on its list of “AIRBORNE HIGH CONSEQUENCE INFECTIOUS DISEASE”” that can spread through the air.

And here comes the New York Times, with this story:
“C.D.C. Dismisses Airborne Transmission of Monkeypox. Some Experts Disagree.”
“The virus is “not known to live in the air,” agency officials said. But the research is far from definitive.”
If you thought that these people want nothing more than to keep Americans living under the thumb of experts and their bureaucracies, you’d be absolutely correct.
We don’t like to think that our government wants to control our lives — it just doesn’t sound, well, American. But if there’s one thing Covid has taught us, it’s that elites in government want to do just that.
Jeffrey Tucker at Brownstone Institute writes that it all started on March 16, 2020, when President Trump approved lockdowns for Covid:
“After the March 16 press conference, there was no going back. The “deep state” – by which I mean the permanent non-appointed bureaucracy and the pressure groups to which it answers – was running the show.”
Where does this power come from? Tucker cites the “Chevron doctrine of deference.” Stemming from a 1984 Supreme Court decision, the Chevron doctrine says that in case of a conflict between a law and a governmental agency, the agency should prevail. As Justice John Paul Stevens wrote in the majority opinion:
“Rather, if the statute is silent or ambiguous with respect to the specific issue, the question for the court is whether the agency’s answer is based on a permissible construction of the statute.”
In other words, the plaintiff in a case must prove that an agency is wrong. We Americans are left with, as Tucker wrote, an “entrenched, arrogant, hegemonic, and unaccountable administrative state that believes it operates with no limit to its power … ”
Now they want us to live in fear of monkeypox. And looky here, writes attorney and author Michael P. Senger, a global outbreak occurred just one year to the week that an international biosecurity conference in Munich held a pandemic simulation. So what did they simulate?
A “global pandemic involving an unusual strain of Monkeypox.” Coincidence? Or nah?
And here comes Joe Biden with monkeypox vaccines for us all.
