  • First 2022 U.S. Case of Monkeypox Confirmed In Massachusetts, Health Officials Say

    "At least there are no worries for us older folks who had our smallpox vaccine"

    Perhaps.

    The "CDC" doesn't state explicitly which smallpox vaccine they refer to here (newer ACAM200 or Jynneos?), but it's most likely the two newest vaccines. According to the article, at least 85% effectiveness (assuming newest vaccines). [1]

    Recent scientific paper:

    It is estimated that over 70% of the world’s population is no longer protected against smallpox, and through cross-immunity, to closely related orthopox viruses such as monkeypox. Monkeypox is now a re-emerging disease.
    https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0264410X2030579X (Volume 38, Issue 33, 14 July 2020, Pages 5077-5081)

    Being a virus, it's susceptible to mutating as well. From your linked article:

    ""It does seem to be spreading, at least from the information that we have so far, through human to human contact," she told CBC News.

    "Which means that it's either that it's a more transmissible variant of monkeypox than any that we've seen before between humans, or there are behaviours that are associated with increased transmission."

    Don't worry though, it's ramping up just in time for the mid-terms.

    With covid largely flaming out with most of the population, they need the next virus to be even scarier so they can go forward with another round of lockdowns and mail in ballot only elections.

    This does look like its starting in the gay community of European men (who traveled from Africa)...however, it may not be limited to them as several "bi-sexual" males are infected.

     

    Monkeypox: What we know about the smallpox-like virus spreading in the UK, Portugal and Spain

    Portuguese health authorities on Wednesday confirmed five cases of monkeypox - ... marking an unusual outbreak in Europe of a disease typically limited to Africa.

    Portugal's General Directorate for Health added it was investigating another 15 suspected cases and that all were identified this month around the capital Lisbon.

    British health authorities said on Monday they had identified four cases of monkeypox infections in London among gay and bisexual men, bringing the total to seven. Spain’s Health Ministry said on Wednesday it had also detected eight suspected cases of monkeypox that still needed to be confirmed.

    ...

    Where is monkeypox typically found?

    Human monkeypox primarily causes outbreaks in the tropical rainforest regions of Central and West Africa and is not typically seen in Europe.

    The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) had the first recorded human case of monkeypox in 1970.

    Since then, cases have been reported in 11 African countries: Benin, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria, the Republic of the Congo, Sierra Leone, and South Sudan.

    The first outbreak of monkeypox reported outside of Africa was linked to the importation of infected mammals in 2003 in the United States, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    More recently, in 2018 and 2019, two travellers from the United Kingdom, one from Israel, and one from Singapore, all with travel history in Nigeria, were diagnosed with monkeypox following a large outbreak there, according to Europe’s own health agency, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC),

    How do you catch monkeypox?

    You can catch the virus from the bite or scratch of an infected animal, by eating bush meat, being in direct contact with an infected human or touching contaminated bedding or clothing.

    The virus enters the body through skin lesions, the respiratory tract, or the mucous membranes (the eyes, nose, or mouth).

    Human-to-human transmission is thought to occur primarily through large respiratory droplets, which generally cannot travel more than a few feet, so prolonged face-to-face contact would be needed.

    "Quick, send another $40 billion. That should do the trick.

    Exactly, just extend them a credit line for one trillion.

    ==================================================

    That may wind up being close to the truth. Except, it won't be "credit" that gets repaid.

    Whenever this foreign war ends, and Ukraine needs rebuilding...it's without question that the taxpayers of the United States will pay the vast majority of the cost and Europe will continue to see us as a bottomless piggy bank.

    Couple classic eastern European fraud with the DC fraud machine, and we may get close to the $1,000,000,000,000 mark.

    I wonder if the hundreds of thousands of poor, uneducated foreign nationals pouring into our country illegally every month will have to pay as well?

    "Sussmann’s trial date is still currently set for May 16. Some time before then, I expect two things to happen:

        Judge Cooper grants Durham’s Motion To Compel Via In Camera review and

        Sussmann to announce he’s changing his plea to guilty

    We’ll see what happens."

    IF anyone else is going to "pay" for what they all did...it will almost certainly END with Sussmann.

    "Enactment of these provisions will motivate illegal aliens to SELF-deport, and remove colonizadors from our welfare rolls."

    Exactly correct!

    They aren't entitled to anything from our country, they should be given nothing.

    Without free food, free housing, free education, free medical, free dental, free legal and on and on and on...the overwhelming vast majority will SELF deport.

    And that small percentage who doesn't, I would (begrudgingly) happily encourage taxpayer money be used to ship them back to whence they came!

    They

    no

    or

    and

    this country can NOT afford to take in and care for the worlds' poor, illiterate and unemployable in our ever increasing high tech/automated society.

    It's now not just about walling up the border and putting more guards and high tech along it...the tens of millions here in violation of our laws must not be allowed to stay and a moratorium on LEGAL immigration needs to be put in place.

    Enough already with shooting ourselves in the foot.

    While they "talk" and "talk" and "talk"...

    ~ Seven thousand, three hundred (7,300) known [1] foreign nationals violate our nations sovereignty and subvert our rule of law on a DAILY basis.

    And they talk, and talk and talk some more.

    In 10 years (or less), unless the tsunami of illegal aliens isn't stopped, Texas WILL be like California and many other states will be flooded with people who are largely illiterate in their own home country language.

    This was reason #1 I voted for, and supported Trump. Illegal "immigration." He was the only one on the national stage to talk bluntly about it.

    Had the "Republican" lead Congress not stepped in his way from the get go, a LOT more could have been accomplished vis a vis the border (and so much more).

    Round 2 can NOT be allowed to play out the same way.

    The Jan 6 "committee" will continue to ignore that because they are fraudulent and evil.

    Pence, as weak as he is, wasn't in a lawful position to do anything other than what he did on Jan 6th. Open the states EC votes, call for objections, announce the tallies. He did that. He followed the law and the Constitution which dictates his role in the process.

    The blame for the fraudulent election must be placed where is belongs.

    The states.

    The states that (1) allowed the fraud to happen in their elections, (2) then counted those fraudulent votes in their elections, (3) allowed their electors to cast their EC votes based on those fraudulent votes and finally, (4) certified their states' EC votes and transmitted them to the Congress to be opened and tallied.

    The only process at the federal level (aside from a SCOTUS ruling on states not following election law) to reject states electoral college votes is if an objection is raised and presented by at least 1 House and 1 Senate member per objection, then each body of Congress (House and Senate) votes on the objection. If they don't vote to affirm the objection, nothing more can be done by them and there is nothing the Vice President can do about that outcome.

    This was the fault of the states where the fraud made the difference.

    People must focus their attention on their local and state governments if this is to be prevented in the future. People can not delude themselves into thinking the SCOTUS will save them, or the Vice President (or even the Congress) will fix fraudulent elections that take place in the states.

    Unless and until those states clean up their elections, more fraud will be perpetrated.

    Was on an American Airlines flight from Charleston to Dallas today and at the CHS airport, and while on the flight...we were told to wear the face diaper.

    When we landed, the flight attendant informed us AA was not mandating masks anymore due to the court ruling.

    Our connecting flight in Dallas made the same announcement.

    Probably 90%+ of the passengers cheered and clapped in each case.

    An oldie (post), but still goodie...

    NO MORE BASTARDIZTION OF THE 14TH AMENDMENT!

    Original intent of the 14th Amendment
    Senator Jacob Howard (served on the Senate Joint Committee on Reconstruction, which drafted the 14th) clearly spelled out the intent of the 14th Amendment by stating:

    "Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country."

    https://www.14thamendment.us/birthright_citizenship/original_intent.html

    Sen. Lyman Trumbull, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, author of the Thirteenth Amendment, and the one who inserted the phrase (All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the States wherein they reside):

    [T]he provision is, that 'all persons born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens.' That means 'subject to the complete jurisdiction thereof.' What do we mean by 'complete jurisdiction thereof?' Not owing allegiance to anybody else. That is what it means.

    Sen. W. Williams:

    I understand the words here, 'subject to the jurisdiction of the United States,' to mean fully and completely subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.

    https://www.14thamendment.us/articles/anchor_babies_unconstitutionality.html

    Senator Jacob Howard states the intent of the Fourteenth Amendment published in the Congressional Record May 30, 1866.
    https://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=llcg&fileName=073/llcg073.db&recNum=11

    We have, at a minimum, 3 different Senators who were involved in drafting the 14th Amendment, stating on record in Congress that subject to the jurisdiction can not, does not, apply to foreigners or aliens (even if here legally).

    The only thing missing for correcting the wrong introduced in the 1960's, is political will. We must do the right thing, and return to original intent of the 14th!.
