WHO Seeks New Far-Reaching Powers at World Health Assembly

In Geneva, 400 kilometers from the picturesque ski resort town of Davos, where leading globalists from political, financial, and mainstream press sectors have gathered for the annual World Economic Forum to discuss how best to impose their global agenda, the World Health Organization, at its the 75th World Health Assembly, is seeking to drastically expand its powers via amendments to International Health Regulations and the ratification of a “global pandemic treaty.” 

The World Health Assembly, the decision-making body of the WHO’s 194 member states, this week began its first fully in-person summit since the COVID-19 pandemic began two years ago. Although the event hasn’t drawn extensive press attention in past years, this year is markedly different, with the global pandemic treaty taking center stage.

The WHO, which failed to admit SARS-CoV-2 was airborne until the end of December 2021, despite the fact scientists knew the pathogen was airborne within weeks of the pandemic’s official declaration in January of 2020, is now looking to amend the International Health Regulations and enact sweeping proposals, all of which would grant the global health body new far-reaching powers that would allow it intervene in the affairs of nation-states in the event of a future pandemic.

Undoubtedly, the proposals receiving the most attention are the Biden-backed amendments to the International Health Regulation and global pandemic treaty, which the WHO claims will help to improve global governance of health and pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response.

Critics of the global pandemic treaty and the treaty amendments, however, contend that they represent little more than a blatant power grab by unelected, globalist health czars, claiming that the WHO seeks to grant itself near-absolute power over global biosecurity, such as the ability to implement mandatory vaccinations, lockdowns, travel restrictions, vaccine passports, digital identification systems, and more. 

Dr. Robert Malone, a virologist and the inventor of mRNA vaccines, is one of those critics. While speaking on Steven K. Bannon’s War Room podcast, Dr. Malone had this to say about the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations and global pandemic treaty:

This is one of those things that sound like science fiction. It’s hard to believe that the president of the U.S. and his administration are intentionally undermining the constitution, but that is what is happening. There has been a direct attempt, with the letter on January 18th—with no public awareness—from the United States to the WHO proposing a series of rule changes. In parallel, there were actions in congress that will essentially allow the president to sign the treaty without congressional authorization. Furthermore, in parallel, there was action taken by the WHO to breach their normal period of review and approval for countries from an 18-month period to a six-month period. What this means is that this [treaty] will get rammed through the American political system and the WHO before the November midterm elections. I cannot believe this is circumstance—this is intentional. They’re not only trying to bypass the constitution and undermine it by this tortured logic that public health should take preeminence over the American constitution, but they put a series of hooks and political plays in place that will allow them to do this without normal review processes, either by the nation-states in the WHO or by the U.S. Congress.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson also weighed in on the subject, telling Americans that the Biden administration was ceding power over every aspect—the intimate aspects—of their lives to a foreign power.

“So, imagine the civil liberties abuses that you lived through during the COVID lockdowns, but permanent and administered from a foreign country,” Carlson said.

Opposition to the global pandemic treaty extends far beyond U.S. borders. Last week, Brazil’s national-conservative president Jair Bolsonaro, while speaking with the press, said that his government would never accept the treaty.

“Brazil will not get into this WHO Pandemic Treaty. Brazil is autonomous. You can forget that. I’ve already spoken to our foreign relations cabinet and if that proposal goes forward, it won’t be with Brazil. Moreover, I was the only statesman that didn’t adhere to the lockdown policies. I said we had to take care of the elderly and people with comorbidities and today studies outside of Brazil show that I was right.”

Responding to the criticism against the proposed treaty, the WHO chief Tedros Ghebreyes, who is widely regarded as a corrupt tool of globalist forces, claimed that a “small minority of groups making misleading statements and purposefully distorting facts.”

Speaking about the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations and global pandemic treaty, he said: “I want to be crystal clear. WHO’s agenda is public, open, and transparent. WHO stands strongly for individual rights.”
