My mom used to always say, “practice makes perfect.” Despite complaining, my siblings and I learned that doing something repeatedly develops judgment, skills, knowledge, good instincts, and a much better final product. Our products improved when we learned to evaluate our mistakes and not repeat them. So, let’s consider how we are doing two and a half years after the advent of COVID.
A New Disease Outbreak
Pride month has been declared for June in the United States, and Pride is celebrated in many parts of the world, in parades and great gatherings, and parties in the US, Europe, and other locations. Hundreds of thousands are celebrating.1
Unfortunately, there is an outbreak of monkeypox that has specifically been infecting Pride participants–“men who have sex with men,” –as the legacy media put it. The outbreak was first reported in May when a single case was detected in the UK.2
Scientists are now reporting that this outbreak of monkeypox is mutating at an unprecedented, accelerated rate compared to other outbreaks and is the “largest monkeypox virus (MPXV) outbreak described so far in non-endemic countries.3 Ever. As of June 23rd, more than 3,417 identified cases were reported across fifty-eight countries on multiple continents.4
Is Monkeypox a PHEIC (pronounced FAKE) Yet?
The World Health Organization (WHO) just called a meeting to determine if the monkeypox outbreak should be classified as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.5 The emergency status “known as PHEIC — pronounced ‘fake’ — applies to an extraordinary event that carries a public health risk via the international spread of a disease, and one that potentially requires a coordinated response.”6 The last time WHO called a meeting to consider classifying a disease as a PHEIC was in January of 2020, when they evaluated the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak. WHO declined to label the COVID-19 disease a PHEIC, changing their mind just a week later.
And I am sorry, but seriously…. the pronunciation of the emergency status label that was applied to SARS-CoV-2 and now considered for monkeypox is pronounced FAKE??? You can’t make this stuff up…and I didn’t.
The timing of this monkeypox outbreak is especially unfortunate because the enormous numbers of group gatherings to celebrate Pride month bring together “men who have sex with men” in exuberant celebrations, and human nature often takes its course.
Monkeypox is spread by skin-to-skin contact, especially of an intimate nature. WHO reports that the “monkeypox virus is transmitted from one person to another by close contact with lesions, body fluids, respiratory droplets, and contaminated materials such as bedding. The incubation period of monkeypox is usually from 6 to 13 days but can range from 5 to 21 days.”7
Despite the mass gatherings planned around the world to celebrate Pride month, the CDC, NIH, and other public health officials refuse to clearly and broadly state that there should be no intimate contact of any kind between those at risk for this disease or infected during this outbreak.8 Gay and bisexual men need to protect themselves and each other for a few weeks, so they do not get sick. Our friend and colleague, Paul Alexander, Ph.D., has very plainly called out these public officials for their dereliction of duty in failing to warn affected communities clearly about how they can protect themselves and each other.9
In November 2021, a report was issued by the Nuclear Threat Initiative, which, along with the Munich Security Conference, held a tabletop exercise to consider responses to a fictional monkeypox outbreak that was posited to occur in May 2022.10
Stretching credulity, fiction has now been replaced by fact as the world experiences a genuine explosion of the monkeypox disease starting on the exact assigned date. Could this exact prediction be one more big coincidence?
Earlier Prescient Pandemic Predictions
All the way back to 2010 and earlier, there have been tabletop exercises making predictions and running drills on how to handle an emerging pandemic. The pandemic simulation exercise at Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in November of 2019 predicted an outbreak of a coronavirus.11 Two months later, in January 2020, the first reports of a coronavirus outbreak—Sars-CoV-2—circulated. Now we have had a 2021 tabletop exercise positing an outbreak of monkeypox, predicting an outbreak would occur in May of this year, and here it is, right on schedule.
Lessons from COVID-19
During the early days of COVID, delays in implementing containment measures stretched on for weeks. Hundreds of flights left China daily for the four corners of the earth, carrying infected individuals to many countries, including thousands of returning foreign students to the US. When President Trump suggested that flights from China should be shut down, he was charged with xenophobia.12
Sadly, we failed to learn the lesson of containment and are seeing a repeat with the appearance of monkeypox. Abstinence, the most logical step for containing monkeypox, has not been recommended by the authorities.
CDC, NIH, and other public health authorities fail to take the scientific and medically sound action of advising abstinence and stand by as another plague descends upon the gay community. Instead, there have been multiple official reassurances that monkeypox is not usually contagious and that a vaccine already exists.13
Are we Really this Naïve?
Can we be so naïve as to believe it is chance when two times out of two, there have been practice runs of a mythical epidemic, and then that specific epidemic appears within months? And both times, there are botched efforts to contain the disease when the outbreak is identified, resulting in a worldwide spread of the pathogen. And each time, the pathogen, first Sars-CoV-2 in 2020, and now this strain of monkeypox is unique in its behavior.
Like coronaviruses, viruses related to smallpox, mousepox, monkeypox, cowpox, and others have been the focus of laboratory manipulation and gain of function (GOF) research since at least 2003. Again like coronaviruses, these pathogens are common in the biocontainment labs of the world.14
But…There are Vaccines!
Conveniently, COVID mRNA and DNA vaccines were already in development for some time prior to the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak. And now, as it turns out, we have monkeypox vaccines handy. These vaccines are also used to inoculate against smallpox, which has been eradicated since 1980.15
New York City opened the first clinic for monkeypox vaccines just this week to administer doses. The clinic has already had to cancel further walk-in appointments because, within 24 hours of opening the clinic, they were booked out into the following week.16 The New York City Health Commissioner reports anxiety to be high, especially among sexually active gay and bisexual men, and so the city decided to make the vaccines available.
Cardiac Adverse Events of Special Interest
The two-dose JYNNEOS vaccine administered 28 days apart is a smallpox and monkeypox vaccine.17 The package insert for the JYNNEOS vaccine contains a section on “Cardiac Adverse Events of Special Interest.”18 This raises concern among doctors tracking the alarming number of COVID vaccine cardiac side effects.19 If individuals already have developed cardiac adverse events from COVID vaccines, they need to avoid another vaccine with the same possible adverse effect.
Individuals who have already had a COVID vaccine, and especially anyone who has experienced cardiac complications following a COVID vaccine, need to consider the greater cardiac event risk of a second vaccine exposure when deciding whether to be vaccinated for monkeypox.20 Few hospitalizations and no deaths have been reported for the current outbreak “outside of an endemic country.”21 Business is picking up for the vaccine manufacturer, however.
Mistakes were Made, But No One is Learning
Despite tabletop exercises for COVID and now monkeypox, mistakes are being repeated. Tabletop exercises without emphasis on correcting mistakes make perfect sense only if one is preparing to spread a little plague chaos. The predators have got to have some “practice runs” to ensure everyone is genned in on the complexities of the execution. The propagandists, the social psychologists, the legacy media, the various agencies, the chosen, anointed corporations (Pfizer and Moderna in the case of COVID in the US) …. well, it takes tremendous coordination.
If preventing the spread of disease and helping the sick is the goal, these exercises continue to fail.
What if the goal is vaccines for money and chaos?
Look at what had to happen with COVID in order to achieve the release of the vaccines. Jack up the numbers of COVID deaths by sending infected elders back to nursing homes (NY and NJ, among other states). Suppress successful FDA-approved medications as early treatments like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin so that the Emergency Use Authorizations could be approved for the vaccines. Manipulate the research to show positive outcomes for vaccines and suppress negative outcomes of the COVID vaccines in trials.22,23 Details of much of the manipulation and the complexities are addressed in our book COVID-19 and the Global Predators: We are the Prey.
I find that using the data we unearthed for our book and continuing to look for the predator connections in chaos further illuminates our current circumstances and removes much of the mystery. The food shortages, energy “shortages,” disruptions in schools, and so many seemingly random actions are explained. Chief among the alarming circumstances are rumors that cash–folding money and coin around the world–will be canceled, and we will all be forced to convert to digital currency and digital wallets. Vaccine passports—in high demand by controlling governments since the COVID pandemic– are one vector being employed to introduce more widely applicable digital wallets. See our column at America Out Loud on why each of us who values freedom must use physical cash instead of digital money, every chance we get.24
There are no Coincidences
This much chaos, this much random disaster in so many sectors, does not just happen. Repeating the same mistakes made in the pandemic that occurred less than three years ago is not just ignorance. We are not just experiencing a streak of bad pandemic luck and massive chaos in other sectors.
There is a huge amount of planning and outright manipulation for so many systems to go so wrong so fast at the same time, both medically and in public health and in other sectors that are being severely disrupted.
What if the deeper purpose of the pandemics is to weaken the nation-states of the world and enable a global-level cabal of private predator corporations, narcissistic billionaires, and the Chinese Communist government to seize world governance.25 A recent and ongoing example of this is the World Health Organization’s attempts to seize enforceable global control of all nations’ health systems and emergency operations when WHO arbitrarily decides it is necessary.26
We cannot afford to be complacent or naïve anymore. Predators exist, and they are stalking us and our democratic republics. Are we going to continue to be their prey until we are too weakened to resist?
