Smallpox vaccine to prevent monkeypox could cause global smallpox (variola) epidemics; I warn, do not be that stupid, understand you have damaged the immune systems of m (b)illions with COVID vaccines
by Paul Alexander
Experts are saying the smallpox vax 85% effective in monkey pox; this is NOT good news, for millions/billions are now immunocompromised from COVID vax; smallpox vax, potential re-introduction smallpox
I will start with this statement before delving deeper: if it is as reported, showing up in mainly males, young males and men who have sex with men (MSM), then it will be prudent to begin a second and third generation type of surveillance system, if there is that much of a concern. Again, if the reports of mainly in MSM. Now as with HIV when it emerged, what helped more acutely characterize the virus and thus efforts to tamp the transmission and to see where it was, we implemented what was known as second and third generation surveillance systems in low-risk mothers (prenatal and antenatal clinics) and in heterosexual relationships. The expectant woman etc. stands always as the lowest risk group for sexually transmitted diseases given her likely monogamy.
The issue we realized was that MSM and bisexuals were causing the HIV to be transmitted broadly when they engaged in contact with non-homosexual partners. MSM can have (and have been known to have) partners outside of the homosexual community. At the height of the HIV epidemic, heterosexual husbands who visited sex workers etc. took it home to low-risk women who thought they were in monogamous relationships. Heterosexual husbands who visited sex workers who were injecting drug users were also at heightened risk of exposure. So looking at the bisexual community for monkey pox and also women seeking pre-natal and antenatal pregnancy services could be of value as it was for HIV in understanding the virus. It will help us understand the extent of spread. Again, I do not think needed and I am only giving this explanation as a tip to the idiotic public health persons in USA and Canada and elsewhere who showed in COVID they are epidemiological morons!
This type of acute heightened surveillance is not needed but if there is more spread outside of Africa, we may want to focus on these low-risk groups to better understand the extent of spread beyond the MSM group if this is the principle at-risk/high-risk group. If what the media is reporting as to the predominance of monkey pox cases. We may also wish to focus on injecting drug users who tend to engage in other high-risk behaviors.
I guess that will not happen for the media will not talk about this. This aspect will be covered up and sidelined if this monkey pox became a larger spread issue. This is the putrid politics and games we face. I talk it as it is, so you will always get the truth from me.
I write here as an infectious diseases epidemiologist, COVID expert, and with training in bioterrorism and biowarfare. I write having worked at World Health Organization, PAHO, the Canadian Government, IDSA, and US government in various epidemiology, EBM roles. That actually shows I may be an idiot too! So do not pay attention to that part of me!
I actually had some schooling under Dr. Donald Henderson at Johns Hopkins school of bioterrorism, who eradicated smallpox. It was in bioterrorism and biological warfare preparations if/when a city is attacked with chemical, radiological, and biological weapons. I asked Dr. Henderson to supervise my doctorate and he agreed, but for funding, better funding, I went to McMaster under the founder of EBM Guyatt. The EBM school at McMaster should be closed now as it is sold out to big pharma and grants. Sadly. The garbage COVID research and fraud corrupted studies by Pfizer and Moderna and FDA, in olden days, EBM giants would have torn it up. No more, follow the money!
So, is monkeypox the new COVID? IMO, we should calm down and recognize its the very same inept, incompetent, arrogant, illogical, irrational, stupid, absurd, specious, non-sensical, hubris-laden, moronic media and so called ‘television medical experts’ at it again. They, these ever preening television experts, have shown an abysmal lack of competence in all things COVID. They are matched only by the COVID Task Force experts. Pure idiots!
So calm down. No evidence that this monkeypox is a threat, it is very non-lethal thus far and likely will not be a threat based on all we do currently know. Is this an attempt to scare you and drive panic? Likely. Is judiciousness and prudence needed? Always it is needed. But within reason. Balance with the facts and the ‘likelihood. Is it a public health threat today? No. I see none, zero! Do we know what to do to contain monkey pox? Absolutely. Again, with all I know as of today, there is the media driving needless fear and panic. It’s reprehensible what they are doing.
As of today, there have been zero deaths due to the cases that have emerged in Europe and North America (I believe near 100 to date and principally in young men). Stop the lying, Mr. news media and idiotic ‘medical expert’ talking heads on television that children are at risk. I ask you, where is the evidence of this? Where? What data? You have none and you know it! You lie as usual to panic parents. Filthy animals you are! Pure filthy stink nasty demonic animals trying to do this, scaring the public needlessly.
So as more is learnt, calm down and turn off FOX and CNN. The same idiots are on there spewing garbage drivel to you. Moronic idiots as usual in the media. Relax. If there are issues to be concerned about, you know folk like me will advise immediately. You know I love to write;-).
Above all, take no more COVID vaccines based on what we know today as to the ineffectiveness and improper safety profile. COVID is and was done! It is continuing due to the continued vaccination with the non-sterilizing, non-neutralizing vaccine with antibodies (Abs) that are targeting the infectiousness of the virus (the spike) yet can only bind to the virus’s spike epitope but not sterilize (eliminate) the virus. You as the ones being vaccinated, are driving the variants/clades/sub-variants. Say NO! None for your children. Not one health official in US, Canada, UK, anywhere… has made any case as to why these failed COVID vaccines are needed in low-risk healthy children. You will be part of harming and killing children with these vaccines. Your children. This is the hill you hold, this is the hill you as parents be prepared to lay your life down on. This is it, all your life now comes to now, all of our lives!
Fauci and Walensky and Bourla of Pfizer and Bancel of Moderna and the kingpin himself Francis Collins of NIH, and the new addition to the clown car show, the blinker Ashish Jha, show they are grossly inept, incompetent, idiotic, and do not think of the health and well-being first. They think fame and money$. Some say nefarious. I do not know enough to comment on that in a properly informed manner but it is clear. It is either pure ineptness or malfeasance. One of the two or a combination. You decide. I have my own thoughts.
So with that open, let me begin on monkey pox and I have to start with smallpox as this is being used to panic you. Smallpox vaccine (smallpox is caused by the variola virus (variola major or variola minor), it is of the genus orthopoxvirus; humans are the only known reservoir) is emerging as a topic of conversation and possible importance in the emergence of monkeypox. IMO, too many unknowns in the era of having mass vaccinated the populations with COVID vaccines, to consider vaccinating for monkeypox with smallpox vaccines; too much damage from COVID vaccines. Smallpox vaccines on top of COVID ineffective and harmful vaccines is insanity! I remind you that “Inoculation with vaccinia virus is highly effective for the prevention of smallpox infection, but it is associated with several known side effects that range from mild and self-limited to severe and life-threatening.”
We have to think outside of the box, and challenge conventional wisdom for everything they did (COVID lockdown lunatics) has not worked and they continue to be clueless. A critical statement thus to set the table:
“Increasing the number of vaccinated persons will inevitably lead to increases in morbidity and mortality due to vaccinia, and current evidence suggests net harm would result if smallpox vaccine were made available to the general public on a voluntary basis.”
Belongia & Naleway: Smallpox Vaccine: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
First, we have said, Vanden Bossche, McCullough, myself etc. that these sub-optimal ineffective and harmful COVID vaccines must be stopped! Completely. They cannot be justified. Zero! None in children! Pfizer (Bourla) and Moderna (Bancel) and Fauci and Walensky and Francis Collins are criminals for pushing this on near statistical zero risk healthy children.
I warn, this is in part to scare you to vaccinate your child with COVID vaccine and even small pox vaccine. Be warned. They, scientists, are saying good news, I am saying not good news if you went thinking you morons that you can vaccinate people for monkeypox with the smallpox vaccine.
Slow your roll on this one, the same players are involved, hysterical, and the same complicit media! Slow your roll!
First, COVID vaccinated persons have depressed subverted immune systems (documented) and thus are at risk for latent and existing pathogen (and cancers), that would not have infected them prior. Very valid to conjecture on this that it is the COVID vaccine and what it has done immune system wise, that has caused monkey pox to emerge in Europe and North America. COVID vaccinated persons could be at dramatic risk to monkeypox and a host of other pathogen/virus.
Next, it is true that persons under 40 years old do not have the smallpox vaccine (a vaccine that has had a questionable history as to safety), yet the real issue is the catastrophic outcome should we vaccinate millions and millions with smallpox vaccine who have subverted immune systems now due the the sub-optimal non-sterilizing COVID vaccine. I warn, by taking people who have compromised immunity as are COVID vaccinated persons (e.g. increased risk of infection and are getting infected post vaccine), and as such immunocompromised, and you give them the smallpox vaccine for monkeypox (orthopoxvirus) prevention, you could create devastation.
I just described COVID vaccinated persons. Immunocompromised vaccinated persons. The smallpox vaccine can potentially then drive cases of smallpox as well as vaccinia in subverted immunity, immunocompromised COVID vaccinated persons, including among young people and children. This is at present a theoretical risk, but can become a reality if how I explained it above is so.
The smallpox vaccine (based on vaccination with vaccinia virus is known to be very ruthless (potentially causing the orthopoxvirus ‘smallpox’ viral disease itself) in immunocompromised persons. The smallpox vaccine can also cause progressive vaccinia (vaccinia virus). Vaccinia induces both cellular and humoral immunity to variola virus (remember, smallpox is caused by the variola virus).
See this passage:
“In the 1960s, serious adverse events associated with smallpox vaccination in the United States included death (1/million vaccinations), progressive vaccinia (1.5/million vaccinations), eczema vaccinatum (39/million vaccinations), postvaccinial encephalitis (12/million vaccinations), and generalized vaccinia (241/million vaccinations).20 Adverse events were approximately ten times more common among those vaccinated for the first time compared to revaccinees.20 Fatality rates were also four times higher for primary vaccinees compared to revaccinees.21
Progressive vaccinia (a.k.a. vaccinia necrosum, vaccinia gangrenosum) is defined as an uncontrolled replication of vaccinia virus at the vaccination site that leads to a slow and progressive necrosis of surrounding tissue.24 Satellite necrotic lesions typically develop, and ultimately vaccinia virus may be found in other tissues and organs.24 This condition typically affects individuals with incompetent immune systems.24,25 The cardinal clinical signs of progressive vaccinia include an unhealed vaccination site >15 days post vaccination, and the lack of inflammation or an immune response at the vaccination site.24,25 Untreated progressive vaccinia is fatal, but treatment with VIG or the antiviral cidofovir may be effective in some cases.”

Study this carefully, think properly. Take your time. Slow your roll with considering smallpox vaccine for monkeypox. Let us stop and examine what these monkeypox cases are about and if they are directly linked to the immuno-suppression due to the COVID vaccines. Again, as we have said repeatedly, stop the COVID vaccines!
Look at the sheer disasters we have made in COVID responding and the vaccines already. At present, there is no cause for concern based on what is being reported. We should look at the transmission in men-who-have-sex-with-men, as there are reports of heightened cases among young men. This needs investigation before this can be declared as credible, for it is unclear at the moment. Lots of the monkeypox news is unclear and really hysterical and meant to scare you. Drives needless fear. We keep an eye out but as of now, this is not a public health threat. Far from it.
Primer on monkeypox:
“Animal-to-human transmission can happen as a result of direct contact with the blood, bodily fluids, or cutaneous or mucosal lesions of infected animals…
Secondary or human-to-human transmission can happen through close contact with respiratory secretions, skin lesions of an infected person or recently contaminated objects…
Transmission via droplet respiratory particles usually requires prolonged face-to-face contact, putting health workers, family members and other close contacts of infected people at greater risk…
On Monday, the WHO signaled that some of the cases confirmed recently in Britain surfaced among gay men…
Although the current cluster of cases is in men who have sex with men, it is probably too early to make conclusions about the mode of transmission or assume that sexual activity was necessary for transmission, unless we have clear epidemiological data and analysis," Michael Skinner, a virology specialist from London's Imperial College, told Science Media centre(SMC) website…
The World Health Organization however says human-to-human transmission is limited.
Symptoms in humans of monkeypox include lesions, eruptions on the face, palms or soles, scabs, fever, muscle ache and chills…
Most people recover within several weeks and monkeypox has only been fatal in rare cases…
It is usually a self-limited disease with symptoms lasting from two to four weeks.”
Key for you to know is this. The cases may be occurring due to exposures to a common source (several infected animals). This is what we pay attention to and if there is human-to-human spread, how infectious/extensive e.g. what is the reproductive number (R naught e.g. how many persons can one infected person spread to and if 1.0 and below, then this is great news as it appears to be). Human-to-human transmission appears to be a minimal (negligible and only with very close physical contact to bodily fluids, lesions, droplet etc.). Sexual intimacy appears to be a player and we should focus on messaging there. Usual containment measures are appropriate e.g. contact tracing, consideration of advisement and quarantine of ONLY persons in contact with bona fide infected persons, or who are symptomatic or in contact with symptomatic persons. Balance is needed still. No mass vaccination. Again, smallpox vaccine has serious safety issues and can be deadly (driving smallpox and/or vaccinia) in the era of depressed immune systems in persons vaccinated with COVID vaccines.
There is no indication whatsoever of any asymptomatic transmission (best knowledge to date), the fraud and lie they sold to us in COVID. No asymptomatic transmission of monkeypox. if there is spread, it is via (based on our evidence to date) contact, actual contact person-to-person (infected persons/had illness to uninfected person). The cases so far are among men who have had sexual contact with other men (MSM) and thus close intimate physical touch. Besides close physical contact (e.g. sexual in MSM), the virus may spread by larger respiratory droplet infection (landing in an uninfected person’s nasopharyngeal passages), as well as direct contact with the lesions or pustules in a symptomatic monkeypox infected person (potentially clothing with content from the infected lesions/pustules).
“In 2021, the United States had two confirmed cases of monkeypox, one in Maryland and one in Texas. Both cases involved people who had recently traveled to Nigeria, where the virus is endemic.
According to the CDC, because the monkeypox virus is related to the virus that causes smallpox, the vaccine can protect people from getting monkeypox.
“Past data from Africa suggests that the smallpox vaccine is at least 85 [percent] effective in preventing monkeypox,” the CDC stated.
“People who closely interact with someone who is infectious are at greater risk for infection: this includes health workers, household members and sexual partners,” the WHO stated.
Monkeypox starts off with flu-like symptoms that include fever, muscle aches, and fatigue, as well as swelling of the lymph nodes. Within days after fever, a rash appears on the face and body, which can also include the genital or perianal area, the CDC states. The incubation period—time from infection to symptoms—can range from 5 to 21 days.
The disease usually self-resolves with the symptoms lasting from 2 to 4 weeks, although severe cases can occur and can even result in death, with recent death rates being around 3 to 6 percent, according to the WHO.
The United States has one confirmed case of monkeypox in Massachusetts, the first this year. The CDC said it is working with the state’s health department to investigate the case. The patient involved has the West African strain of monkeypox virus, and is currently isolated, the CDC stated. He had recently traveled to Canada, where the first two monkeypox cases were confirmed late on May 19 in Quebec.
The CDC noted that in the case of the United Kingdom, there was a “temporally clustered group of cases involving four people who self-identify as gay, bisexual, or men who have sex with men.”
“Some evidence suggests that cases among [men who have sex with men] may be epidemiologically linked; the patients in this cluster were identified at sexual health clinics,” it stated. “This is an evolving investigation and public health authorities hope to learn more about routes of exposure in the coming days.”
It adds that doctors should be more suspicious for the disease and consider it as a possible diagnosis if, in addition to having a characteristic rash, their patient has traveled to countries with recently confirmed cases of monkeypox; reports having had contact with anyone who had monkeypox, or suspected monkeypox, or have a rash similar in appearance to monkeypox; or is a man who regularly has close or intimate in-person contact with other men.’
My understanding says relax, calm down, turn off CNN and FOX, two of the same idiotic misinformation outfits. This monkeypox virus is basic to Africa and is zoonotic and as such can jump from animals to humans. If it does, transmission is via close physical contact e.g. reports of spread between MSM (needs to be clarified), bodily fluid, touch of infected lesions/pustules, and possibly clothing from infected persons. Death rate is vanishingly low and no evidence more deadly for children. Based on all data we know of, globally. IMO, this is no public health concern, no threat, and as before, was never a virus to lose sleep over. We keep an eye on it, and we use traditional public health control measures e.g. contact tracing, if and when need be. No mass vaccination using smallpox vaccine and especially within the immune compromised devastation caused by the COVID vaccines. Smallpox vaccine in this context and era of depleted exhausted immune systems with all the ineffective and deadly boosting, could cause smallpox epidemics and vaccinia.
