Lock yourselves down inside your homes! Break out the masks and prophylactic face-shields! Switch off what’s left of your critical faculties and prepare yourselves to “follow the Science!”

Yes, that’s right, just as the survivors of The Simulated Apocalyptic Plague of 2020-2021 were crawling up out of their Covid bunkers and starting to “build the world back better,” another biblical pestilence has apparently been unleashed on humanity!

This time it’s the dreaded monkeypox, a viral zoonotic disease endemic to central and western Africa that circulates among giant pouched rats, squirrels, dormice, and other rodents and has been infecting humans for centuries, or millennia. Monkeypox causes fever, headaches, muscle aches, and sometimes fluid-filled blisters, tends to resolve in two to four weeks, and thus poses absolutely zero threat to human civilization generally.

The corporate media do not want to alarm us, but it is their duty as professional journalists to report that THE MONKEYPOX IS SPREADING LIKE WILDFIRE! OVER 100 CASES OF MONKEYPOX have been confirmed in countries throughout the world! MONKEYPOX TASKFORCES are being convened! Close-up photos of NASTY-LOOKING MONKEYPOX LESIONS are being disseminated! The President of the United States says “EVERYBODY SHOULD BE CONCERNED!”

The WHO is calling it “a multi-country monkeypox outbreak!” Belgium has introduced a mandatory quarantine. The CDC has gone to “Alert Level 2!” “Enhanced precautions” are recommended! In New York City, the nexus of probably the most paranoid, mask-wearing, quadruple-“vaccinated” New Normal fanatics on the face of the planet, the Department of Health is instructing everyone to wear the masks they are already wearing to protect them from both Covid and monkeypox, and smallpox, and largepox, and airborne cancer, and God knows what other horrors might be out there!

Here in the capital of New Normal Germany, Karl Lauterbach, who, despite wasting hundreds of millions of Euros on superfluous “vaccines,” attempting to compulsorily “vaccinate” every man, woman, and child in the country, and otherwise behaving like a fascist lunatic, remains the official Minister of Health, is excitedly hopping up and down and hooting like a Siamang gibbon about “recommendations for isolation and quarantine,” and other “monkeypox containment measures.”

As Yogi Berra famously put it, “it’s like déjà vu all over again.”

Except that it isn’t … or it probably isn’t. Before I could even finish this column, the United GloboCap Ministries of Truth started dialing down the monkeypox panic. It appears they’re going with “it’s a gay pandemic,” or an “LGBTQ pandemic,” or an “LGBTQIA+ pandemic,” or whatever the official acronym is by the time I click the “publish” button, and making other noises to the effect that it might not be absolutely necessary this time to order a full-scale global lockdown, release the drones and robotic dogs, inject everybody with experimental drugs, and start viciously persecuting “monkeypox deniers.”

You didn’t really believe they were launching a shot-by-shot remake of Covid, did you? The showrunners at GloboCap may be preternaturally evil, but they aren’t stupid. Only the most hopelessly brainwashed New Normals would go along with another “apocalyptic pandemic” before the current one has even been officially cancelled. No, unfortunately, odds are, we’re just getting a preview of what “life” is going to be like in the New Normal Reich, where the masses will be perpetually menaced by an inexhaustible assortment of exotic pathogens and interchangeable pseudo-pathological threats.

The New Normal was never about Covid specifically. It was always about implementing a new “reality” — a pathologized-totalitarian “reality,” not so much ruled as discreetly “guided” by unaccountable, supranational, non-governmental governing entities, global corporations, and assorted billionaires — in which Covid, or monkeypox, or kangaroopox, or any other viral zoonotic disease, or any climate-related or economic development, or aberrant ideological or behavioral tendency, could be used as a pretext to foment another outbreak of mindless mass hysteria and impose additional restrictions on society.

That new “reality” has been implemented … perhaps not as firmly as originally intended, but implemented nonetheless. We are being conditioned to accept this new “reality,” as we were conditioned to accept the War on Terror “reality,” to pointlessly remove our footwear at the airport, place our liquids in travel-size containers, submit to groping by “security staff,” and otherwise live in a state of constant low-level fear of a “terrorist attack,” as we are now being conditioned to wear masks where we are told, submit to mandatory “vaccination,” and live in constant low-level fear of the next purportedly deadly pathogen.

Sadly, most of us will accept this conditioning, and adapt to the “minor inconveniences” that are being imposed on us at every turn. After all, what difference does it really make if we have to wear a little mask on an airplane, or on public transport, or at the doctor’s office? And is it really such a breach of our fundamental rights to freedom of speech, freedom of movement, association, privacy, and basic bodily autonomy if we have to allow governments and global corporations to censor our political opinions, prevent us from traveling, forbid us to protest, and force us to submit to invasive medical treatments in order to hold a job? We got used to taking off our shoes at the airport and watching the “security staff” fondle our kids’ genitals, and invading and bombing other countries and murdering whole families with drones, didn’t we? Surely, we’ll get used to this.

Or … OK, I won’t, and neither will you, probably, but the majority of the masses will. They just demonstrated that pretty clearly, didn’t they? As they demonstrated it during the Global War on Terror. As they demonstrated it during the Cold War. As they demonstrated it … oh, never mind.

Sorry, I really wanted to end this column on a positive note. All right, here’s one! A little good news, finally! According to the professional fact-checkers at Reuters, it turns out “there is no evidence at all that the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting [which is taking place in Davos right now] was scheduled to coincide with these outbreaks of monkeypox,” and anyone who says there is, or implies there is, or who deviates from or questions the “facts,” or the “Science,” or whatever, is a “monkeypox-denying, conspiracy-theorizing, anti-vax, Putin-loving disinformationist,” and so everything is actually hunky-dory, or it will be as soon as we teach those evil Rooskies a little thermonuclear lesson!

I don’t know about you, but that’s a load off my mind. For a moment there, I thought we were in trouble.

  1. “It will be the reign of scientific intelligence, the most aristocratic, despotic, arrogant, and contemptuous of all regimes. There will be a new class, a new hierarchy of real and pretended scientists and scholars, and the world will be divided into a minority ruling in the name of knowledge and an immense ignorant majority. And then, woe betide the mass of ignorant ones.” ~Bakunin

    I think about this quote an awful lot—almost as much as I do about the fact that the majority of those white suits helping the State keep those Shanghai lockdowns humming are volunteers. There’s something to be said about a director like Michel Haneke refusing to indulge in the fantasy creations so in vogue these days. He gets what C.J. gets: nothing is more horrifying than humanity.

  2. Once again, CJ, I can’t argue with a word you’ve written. It galls me to come off like a sycophantic dittohead, but there it is! 😫

    I’m reduced to mentioning that when I scrolled down to your first “Top Stories” graphic, I reflexively pushed my mouse to the metal, so to speak, under the assumption that it was one of those obnoxious advertisement inserts.

    I would forgive you if circumstances necessitated your use of the vile things, but I still would refuse to view (“read”) them. Fortunately, it, er, “clicked” that the graphic was actually Exhibit A, and I put on the brakes in time.

    Incidentally: I noticed a return to increased mask-wearing in my local (suburban Philadelphia, PA) shopping center today, but I don’t know if it’s because of the looming Monkeypox Scamdemic, or semi-scamdemic, or because local scamdemic thralls are panicked by another ritual “COVID case numbers rising” scare.


  3. I admit to being somewhat nostalgic for the good old Coronavirus. We knew where we were going. Digital ID social credit etc.. Then it stopped. Scaremongering and creeping digitalisation continue in some places.

    Omicron not scary enough ? Biden mandate being struck down in the Supreme Court ?

    Monkey pox feels like an appetiser, Expecting a solid bird flu by Autumn.


  4. Another great article CJ. You Rock!
    If I were a psychopathic Bored Ape, I would be partial to Marburg. Highly virulent disease related to Ebola that causes haemorrhagic fever. Only problem if Marburg got the nod, is it would have to be a real release, since the fatality ratio is up to 88%. Most likely we’ll see derivatives of monkeypox, which are mild and resolve in a week. This provides the meme makers with the optimal flexibility to control the pace and extent of the “outbreak” with fake stats, made for tv sets and wag the dog actors.
    Given the end goal is biometric control of the human mind and body, covid provided proof of concept that all this can be accomplished economically with a pandemic fiction, without the need for the Davos-DARPA crowd to put the immune systems of their own zygotes on the viral firing line.

    Paraphrasing the eloquent words of the Cowardly Lion -I do believe in “vaccines.” Specifically, with all this wonderful nanotech sitting on the shelve, why use a crude tool like airborne dissemination, when bio-synthetic carrier waves provide read and write access to the neocortex and the ability to manipulate gene protein synthesis remotely with sound and light?


  5. Worry not CJ for there will be far more to wring out of the US-NATO-UK Proxy War against the survival of The Russian State. The latter, on appearance and contrary to the great expectations of some, just isn’t going anywhere. The US-NATO-UK are and they look like taking the rest of Western Europe with them.

    It’s WW III and short of going all out nuke, we could be in for 20 years of sub-threshhold military conflict on The Continent.

    Some of this is considered here by a far lesser mortal:


    1. Corruption is rampant in the health organizations of the world. Counties around the world would be wise to disconnect with the WHO. It would also be wise for the U.S. to scrap the CDC and start all over again.


      1. “It would also be wise for the U.S. to scrap the CDC and start all over again.”

        Even better would be to scrap the CDC and NOT start all over again. Government doesn’t belong in the doctor business.


  6. A beautiful description of the accelerating process by which homo sapiens is epigenetically evolving into homo borgimus…Great writing as always CJ! How high’s the water temperature now, my fellow frogs? Are we now already so warm that we’ve become too lethargic to jump out of the pot even if we want to?
