Monkeypox to Create a Ballot Harvesting 2.0 for Midterms?


By now, we’ve all heard about the disastrous election cycle the Democratic Party is about to have. Due in large part to Democratic President Joe Biden’s treacherous time in office, as well as more than a few faulty liberal leaders, it has become clear the Party is moving in a direction that the vast majority of Americans simply do not agree with.

And so, it is expected, and is, in fact, nearly a given at this point, that the upcoming midterm election cycle will result in a vast overturn of leadership, with Republicans being returned to the majority in both legislative houses.

Of course, the Democrats aren’t too thrilled about this and so are trying everything they can to change those odds.

So far, nothing has worked, not their attacks on Donald Trump, not their constant barrage on GOP big hitters like Florida’s Ron DeSantis. Not even their current majority in the House of Representatives and Senate has been enough to change the tides or even pass much of their plan.

What will they try next?

As Donald Trump recently alluded to, as well as several other Republican Party members, it all has to do with monkeypox.

If you haven’t heard of the new disease, it’s a virus that, much like COVID-19 back in 2020, is making its way across the United States. However, unlike COVID, it’s not all that transmissible, and according to research on it, it doesn’t seem all that deadly either.

Furthermore, it only seems to infect adult gay and bisexual men. According to a July 27 CNBC report, 95 percent of the 6,300 cases of Monkeypox in the US are men who have sex with other men.

Now, of course, that doesn’t mean that the disease can’t be serious and can’t cause damage, especially if those infected also have other health issues. As with COVID, those most at risk would be wise to take certain precautions to avoid getting it.

For the Democrats, that means installing all those COVID lockdowns and measures used in 2020 that just so happened to allow them to win not only the presidential election but retain their control over both houses.

Take the state of California, for example.

So far, the state has reported about 800 cases of monkeypox so far. It’s enough, apparently, that liberal Governor Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency. Read part of his statement about it and tell me if this doesn’t sound familiar…

“California is working urgently across all levels of government to slow the spread of monkeypox, leveraging our robust testing, contact tracing, and community partnerships strengthened during the pandemic to ensure that those most at risk are our focus for vaccines, treatment, and outreach.”

As Donald Trump warned in a recent call-in appearance with OAN’s Dan Ball, “Here we go again, here we go again. Back to mail-in ballots, the fake mail-in ballots, all the things that took place. What a disgrace.”

Now, some of you, those who aren’t all that into Trump, might just assume this is him being overly dramatic as usual. But what if I told you that two other Democratic strongholds and two of the largest states in the US were also declaring states of emergency for a disease that has so far not spread to more than 1,200 in either state?

That’s right, both New York and Illinois, home to the two other largest cities in the country, New York City and Chicago, respectively, have also made similar statements declaring the state take action.

Illinois Governor JB Pritzker stated that this “rare, but potentially serious disease…” “requires the full mobilization of all available public health resources to prevent the spread.” It is noted that only 500 cases of monkeypox have been reported so far in Illinois.

Similarly, New York Governor Kathy Hochul, desperate to prove that she won’t handle this virus as her predecessor did COVID, made a statement about needing “to utilize every tool in our arsenal as we respond” to monkeypox. New York state, as a whole, has roughly 1,200 cases, according to WNBC-TV.

So here we have three of the largest states in the US, which also happen to contain the nation’s three largest cities and most populated areas, all Democratically run and all declaring states of emergency and the need for extra attention just months away from what is likely to a disastrous midterm election season for the Democratic Party.

Yeah, I’d say Trump is right about our reason to worry. What do you think?
