Recently, America narrowly missed the opportunity to cede our sovereignty to the World Health Organization. Joe Biden, in an effort to give a congress of 193 foreign nations authority over the American people, proposed 13 amendments on January 18, 2022. This was done in conspicuous silence, without either press releases or an official statement.
In 2005, then-President George W. Bush signed an agreement that requires the U.S. to obey the WHO’s International Health Regulations (IHR). These are international agreements that bind member nations under the authority of WHO, and any member who violates them may be brought before the World Court in The Hague, Netherlands to answer for their ignominious health crimes against the State of the World.
On April 12, these 13 amendments proposed by the U.S. Commander in Chief were posted to the WHO website and were subsequently discovered by a researcher named James Roguski. This was four months after they had been submitted to the WHO for consideration, apparently without the knowledge or consent of Congress or the Supreme Court.
The WHO convened on May 22-28 to discuss, among other things, these amendments in the 75th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland. Twelve of the amendments were withdrawn, and eventually even the final one did not pass. But these 13 amendments, in combination with other existing ones, would enable Director-General Tedros Akhanom Ghebreyesus and future Director-Generals unrestricted power to define and implement their will and to declare health emergencies at will in any member nation regardless of that nation’s desires.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro showed his colors and absolutely refused to hand over Brazilian sovereignty to the WHO. Several other nations including Iran, Malaysia, and some African nations also demurred, but the African nations who dissented did so not because they disagree with the ideology of the amendments, but because they hope to pass a “Pandemic Treaty” that will accomplish all these things and more in a holistic approach rather than piecemeal.
In July 2020, President Donald Trump stated that the United States was withdrawing from the WHO as a result of their assistance to China in the cover up of the origins of the Covid virus. The U.S. has historically been the number one financial supporter of the WHO, and Bill Gates, upon receiving this news, increased his personal contribution to $250 million. He is currently the largest private financial contributor to the WHO and is only second to the U.S. internationally.
Though these amendments were defeated during the World Health Assembly this year, they may be resubmitted by September 30. The 13 articles these amendments would affect are: 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 18, 48, 49, 53, and 59. Following are the summaries of these changes.
1. Increased surveillance: The WHO would develop early warning criteria allowing it to utilize similar modeling, simulation and predictions used to estimate the risk from Covid-19. Once completed, this assessment would be used between governments and member nations to decide upon a course of action.
2. 48-hour deadline: Member states informed of a health concern/emergency would be given 48 hours to respond, which in reality could be reduced to hours. They would be forced to comply or suffer disapproval from the WHO and other member states.
3. Secret sources: The WHO would be allowed to rely upon undisclosed sources for their information concerning the health of member states. These may include Big Pharma, WHO funders such as the Gates Foundation and GAVI Alliance.
4. Weakened sovereignty: The Director-General, upon receiving this information, would not be required to consult with the WHO Emergency Committee or the member state, but would have the authority to declare a public health emergency of international concern. Also, the International Health Regulations would be legally binding and would actually supersede the U.S. Constitution.
5. Rejecting the amendments: Currently, a member state has 18 months to reject an amendment, but this would be decreased to six months. No action or an untimely one, would result in assumed compliance.
Though all 13 amendments were defeated in May, it is vitally important that the United States does not become entangled in these strangling amendments in the 76th Assembly, to be held in 2023.
Convention of States is diametrically opposed to these tyrannical power-grabs, and is pursuing a plan, originating with our Founders. They included Article V of the Constitution to give the states power to remind the Feds that they work for us.
Through a Convention of the States, amendments to the U.S. Constitution would be proposed that would limit the federal government’s power, require term limits, and demand fiscal responsibility, placing the power back in the hands of the states and the people respectively, as our Founder’s originally intended.
