Biden Administration Declares Monkeypox a National Health Emergency

Biden Administration Declares Monkeypox a National Health Emergency

When your administration is filled with trans activists who promote pediatric sex reassignment and a press is unwilling to challenge officials, recommendations for personal responsibility would get as much support as ivermectin did for covid.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently blasted other governors for declaring monkeypox, which currently occurs in an overwhelming percentage of men engaging in homosexual activity, a public health emergency.

During his discussion of monkeypox emergency declarations, DeSantis stated:

“They’re going to abuse those emergency powers to restrict your freedom,” Desantis said. “I guarantee you that’s what will happen.”

Restricting freedoms appeals to the Biden administration, as it has officially declared monkeypox a national health emergency.

The Biden administration on Thursday declared the growing monkeypox outbreak a national health emergency, a rare designation signaling that the virus now represents a significant risk to Americans and setting in motion new measures aimed at containing the threat.

The declaration by Xavier Becerra, President Biden’s health secretary, marks just the fifth such national emergency since 2001, and comes as the country remains in a state of emergency over the coronavirus pandemic. The World Health Organization declared a global health emergency over the outbreak late last month.

….“We’re prepared to take our response to the next level in addressing this virus,” Mr. Becerra said, adding that “we urge every American to take monkeypox seriously, and to take responsibility to help us tackle this virus.”

The declaration is ostensibly a method to make more federal resources available to respond to the monkeypox outbreak.

The declaration could facilitate access to emergency funds, allow health agencies to collect more data about cases and vaccinations, accelerate vaccine distribution and make it easier for doctors to prescribe treatment.

“We’re prepared to take our response to the next level in addressing this virus and we urge every American to take monkeypox seriously and to take responsibility to help us tackle this virus,” Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said in a Thursday briefing about the emergency declaration.

However, what would be most effective is for the media and government officials to clearly state that the country’s monkeypox strain is being spread by homosexual activity. Stressing “two weeks of no sex” to stop the spread might be an excellent place to begin.

But when your administration is filled with trans activists who promote pediatric sex reassignment and a press unwilling to challenge officials, such recommendations would get as much support as ivermectin did for covid.

Fortunately for the infected, this strain appears to have a low infection fatality rate. Here’s hoping it doesn’t morph into anything deadlier. I sense that the Biden administration will be as successful in dealing with this virus as it has been with the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, the fentanyl crisis continues to be ignored.

The First Monkey trying to sell a pox. A pox on the First Monkey, and all those around him.

Maybe they could put pete inthebutt in charge of restricting homosexual activity.

You do realize who catches it.
And why they catch it.
Ya know there ain’t but a dozen kids who have got it.
Darwin wins.

Let’s cover that at one point the CDC had 20 million doses of monkey pox virus. It expired and wasn’t replaced because of CDC incompetence.

Let’s cover the need to replace all of CDC leadership with people who will do that.

Let’s cover the likely billions of wasted emergency funding to graft and grift opportunities.

This was preventable and addressable. It won’t be until the swamp is drained.

Let’s cover that too.

monkeypox, which currently occurs in an overwhelming percentage of men engaging in homosexual activity,

No, it currently occurs in only a very small percentage of such men. And in an percentage of everyone else that is even more minuscule, by several orders of magnitude. Let’s hope it stays that way.

      He’s right and author is wrong.

      The angry cognitive dissonance ranters need to grow up and learn about adult tact and objectivity rather than leaning in to your biases every chance you get.

        Munkey Pux cases are overwhelmingly occurring among promiscuous gay men having sex with other gay men. Please explain what is wrong with that assessment. We all get what Leslie meant. If you have information that refutes that, please show it. Otherwise, knock it off.

          Phil,

          You got it on this one. It’s the promiscuity that is the issue. Celibate people have practically zero chance of contracting monkey pox. Overly promiscuous people who engage in sexual or intimate contact with a series of other people increase their risk exponentially.

          Some portion of gay men, though not all, continue to engage in these high risk behaviors at higher rates than the general public. Even after Aids and in the face of very high levels of STD. Now we can add monkey pox to the list of reasons to avoid high risk sexual behavior; overly promiscuous activity.

          Credit where credit is due; your post here is accurate, reasonable and measured because it doesn’t engage in group/identity politics and places blame squarely upon the individuals who chose to engage in high risk activity.

          Commo: I knew we’d get back in sync.

          Why are you kowtowing to this man-child?

          He’s partially right in that it is about promiscuity and intimate contact with multiple partners, who could be carrying/infected. That can happen in gay men and has…a lot, but it’s similar to the AIDS blame game (just to the blame game, not the transmission mechanism).

          Monkeypox is spread on large respiratory droplets (think like coughs and sneezes) that are easily passed during intimate contact, and it does not matter whether you are gay or straight. It so happens that many promiscuous gays were at the epicenter of initial spread, but bisexuals and others living in close proximity that don’t even have sex with one another can also catch this. That’s why it has also spread among heterosexuals, but at a slower initial rate just because of the epicenter effect.

          The selective bias is disgusting. Many of these same a-holes were yelling about waiting to see IFR rates come down once COVID had spread more (which they were right about). Now, they are yelling and denying the prudent “wait for data” approach on monkeypox because it serves their biases. That is flat out garbage and you know it!

          @healthguyfsu – whether Munkey Pux CAN be transmitted among any group and not just gay men buggering other gay men is so irrelevant. The fact is that infections are almost all among gay men.

          Until your claim that lots of heterosexual men (why just men if it is airborne?) shows up in the stats, you don’t have a case.

          I suspect it’s the stigma that bothers you. If so, you are barking at the wrong people. You need to be barking at those gay men who just refuse to be responsible. It’s a gay problem okay? Leave the rest of us alone. Homosexuality used to be illegal for centuries for this very reason. If stigmatization isn’t enough to shame gay men into being responsible, maybe everyone was right predicting that legalizing sodomy would inevitably lead to these diseases (grooming…) and so why shouldn’t we return to making it illegal again? Get the point?

          Phil,

          Your backsliding on this one. Now you are deliberately using provocative language when it is unnecessary. In doing so you are choosing to offend some readers. That deliberately offered offense in the eyes of some will be enough to stop listening to you.

          IMO, We shouldn’t do that. We can communicate directly and forthrightly without comprising the message. We can’t risk losing a close election by PO voters who then stay home or worse punish r for what they deem an offensive message.

          DJT can get by with it. People are used to it. He’s earned the right to do so, the rest of us haven’t and shouldn’t act like we have.

          @Commo: I don’t see any backsliding between my first statement and my last. I have no patience with bleeding hearts who treat this problem like the promiscuous gay men are victims and add up hypothetical possibilities that are clearly not in evidence into their arguments. It’s not complicated so why complicate things with irrelevant arguments. If that offends gay people, tough.

          The people who are getting infected and spreading the disease are pretty much all gay. That’s an indisputable fact. It’s a gay problem and the ones causing the problem don’t seem to care. If I were gay, I would be coming down on these perverts like a ton of bricks for the good of all. It’s like blaming white people for blacks killing blacks in South Chicago. Aren’t there any black people who care enough to act? Aren’t there any gay people who care enough to act on stopping the Munkey Pux? Is that too complicated for you to understand? There is no inconsistency with what I have been saying.

          It’s not even up for debate about whether it can be spread on large respiratory droplets (which is not considered airborne…at least not in the COVID 19 sense which are carried on micelles). The difference is droplet size as micelles can remain afloat for 30 to 60 minutes while large respiratory droplets fall rapidly (hence the need for close intimate contact to spread in this manner).

          I’m not afraid to offend people when it’s the truth. In this case, the truth is to warn all multiple partner, consequence ignoring neohippies about the spread mechanism because your clumsy version gives a large sector of the population plausible ignorance of their susceptibility.

          Phil,

          Your first statement was entirely factual and didn’t include implied moral judgements. The second did as well as reframing risk of transmission as applicable to gays and no one else. Same error as Aids. Monkey pox will get loose among heterosexuals just as Aids did.

          Bleeding heart? Nah, I ain’t that guy. It’s a free country. As my Father told me ‘say what you think you are big enough to get by with but always be careful not to let your alligator mouth over ride your hummingbird ass’.

          I believe in consequences and repercussions. and people getting what they deserve. Of course I may have a much harsher view of what was deserved. Some guy mouths off in a bar to the wrong person and that guy gets his teeth kicked in? Meh, be more careful how you talk to people and don’t frequent joints where those people hang out. Simple.

          In this case attempting to reframe the central issue about homosexuality v promiscuity is not only incorrect but also offends some people. Doing so deliberately for shock effect or just cause you don’t GAF might cost us a vote. That vote might be the one we need to win. Likely it will be far more than one. All choices have consequences. In this case your choices could impose consequences on the rest of us, which seems a bit narcissistic.

          Again it’s a free county so you can do and say whatever you want, just realize the potential for blowback, controversy or consequences. Some expected, some unexpected, some tolerable some intolerable. That’s freedom.

        No, you need to learn about telling the truth and not worry how it will make people feel. Lying to the people and gays in particular is not helping anyone out.

      There are at least 5-1/4 million gay men between the ages of 16 and 60, and probably a couple million more who are part-timers, a/k/a bisexual. The most recent number of U.S. cases is 6,000. There’s a lag between contracting the virus and reporting the infection, so let’s call it 12,000. And for purposes of this comment, let’s say every case emanates from homosexual activity.

      12,000/7,500,000 = 0.16% of gay and bisexual men between 16 and 60.

    I assume what is meant is that the overwhelming majority of cases consist of homosexuals (as opposed to the notion that the overwhelming majority of homosexuals have contracted the pox).

    Sometimes people don’t articulate clearly what they intend to say, and you have to read between the lines.

    Even though you have a tendency towards pedantry, in this case you are technically correct, he should have said – and I suspect meant(which I think you know he meant as well) “an overwhelming percentage of cases occur in men engaging in homosexual activity” rather than ‘occurs in an overwhelming percentage of men engaging in…”

      As Rush Limbaugh was fond of stating words have meaning. Effective communication requires clarity and precision in the phrasing or we risk confusion. A spelling or punctuation or grammar error can be overlooked. A statement that can be disproved on it’s face due to imprecise language or overly broad statements is another matter.

      Example ‘All of (insert group) do/believe Y’ To disprove this we need only one example of a member of the specified group who doesn’t do/believe Y.

      This is how we as conservatives sometimes lose arguments and opportunities to convert or convince people to join our causes. Imprecise, overly broad or ambiguous phrasing allows the d/prog to project bad things into the space we created by our imprecise phrasing. We shouldn’t give them that opportunity.

      The d/prog and their allies control legacy media and academia. They will take full advantage of their position to warp and misconstrue our policy preferences and positions. It’s important to be able to go to the tape or transcript or original article/post and be able to demonstrate that they are lying about what was stated.

      When we are forced to explain that we meant something different than the ambiguous phrasing we are putting ourselves on the defensive. Its an unforced error that damages our causes due to sloppy choices of language. We’re already at a considerable disadvantage in messaging, we can’t afford to keep digging the hole any deeper.

Ladies and gentlemen, make way for the new Monkeypox Czar. The czar’s czar. The czars all other czars look up to.

Leather motorcycle cap, leather chaps, no shirt, hairy chest. Pornstache. Long silverblonde hair like Take It In The Rear Admiral Richard Levine. Kitten with a whip. Reoowwrrr.

The real problem here is donkeypox. We need a cure for that.

“100,000 Fentanyl deaths is not an emergency.

Good point. We’ve been snowed by the “cases” bullshit again while we weren’t paying attention. How many people are DYING of monkeypox?

This clown show will never end if they can help it.

I think of monkey pox as a social disease. I don’t wish it on anyone.

Leslie made a great point about drug overdoses. That is being ignored

But our illustrious “media” and our health “experts” are pushing the “don’t say gay” slogan to upset the groomers and molesters on the left.

Leslie, I think the headline is incomplete. It should
read: Globalists tell their go between to instruct Dementia Joe to Declare Monkeypox a National Health Emergency. Get the team together and make him rehearse until he says it reasonably well. A daunting task if there ever was one.

WILL NOT COMPLY with ANY illegal edicts coming from this clown show based on the “science” that was ruined in the last round of viral BS. Anything that oozes out of the money infected medical community will also be ignored. No masks. No vaccines. No social distancing. No nothing.
That being said, does anyone else remember what happened in late 2019 in a homeless camp in San Francisco? An outbreak, though small, of the bubonic plague (yes THAT plague with a 70% kill ratio) and yet NOBODY batted an eye over it. I read it in an article but the internet has memory-holed it.

You can make a safe bet that there will be no discussion of lockdowns in Fire Island, Nantucket or San Francisco or any other venue where the conduct that leads to monkey pox develops. You can also bet there will be no discussion re the lack of effort re fentanyl addiction or why this self inflicted STD is more of a national health emergency than cancer, Atzheimers; dementia , cancer or heart disease or why we must spend millions on analyzing why sectors that do not engage in such conduct do not test positive or need a vaccine.

As AIDS before, and Covid-19/20/21/22 (excluding planned parent/hood), the primary criteria for transmission are socially liberal behavior, digestive penetration into the rectum, and, given the children infected, probable grooming a la scouts, schools, churches, and celebrity couches, including trans/homo males and liberated couples.

    I should say the primary criteria for transmission in the wild, and not the result of incompetence or negligence in hospitals, clinics, etc.
