WHO power grab thwarted
MICHEL VAN DER KEMP
Two major events took place in Switzerland last week. In Geneva, the World Health Assembly voted on the position of the WHO Director-General and its regulations, and Davos hosted the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting.
The WEF itself said of the meeting in Davos that the “Annual Meeting 2022 convenes at the most consequential geopolitical and geo-economic moment of the past three decades.” That prompted uninvited Rebel News reporter Avi Yemini to take a look. To see if “it will be the starting point for a new era of global responsibility and cooperation”, he tried to ask several officials who were invited what was being discussed in Davos.
Yemini did not seem to have much success. He asked his colleague at the New York Times, deputy managing editor, Rebecca Blumenstein; he asked Microsoft President, Brad Smith; he asked the UN Special Envoy for climate action, Mark Carney (former governor of the Bank of England); and he asked Special Envoy on Covid for the WHO, Dr. David Nabarro. None of these distinguished guests seemed too interested to talk to him. Luckily, a spokesperson for Antifa was prepared to talk. Security did not only try to talk, but they also tried to stop him from reporting.
So, for this reason we can not really say whether “Rebuilding Societal Trust”, the first point on the WEF agenda, was successfully accomplished. But the shape of the future, being one step ahead of the present, can always be molded during the next meeting. While Klaus Schwab was busy rebuilding societal trust and claying to shape his ideal future, the WHO were more concerned with the present.
World Health Assembly
It is the World Health Assembly (WHA) that determines the policies of the WHO, appoints the Director-General, and supervises finances. The assembly is attended by delegations of all WHO Member States.
This year, all eyes seemed to be on the 75th assembly. As we reported in several articles (here and here), it was the United States of America that submitted amendments to the International Health Regulations that would transfer unprecedented powers to the WHO, once approved. Possibly because there was a vocal public backlash, in the end these amendments did not make it.
As relayed by James Roguski in an interview for Children’s Health Defense, a British citizen asked for a judicial review about what the British delegation are doing with the proposed U.S. amendments. This review was denied. And the citizen filed for an appeal. He then got a call from the appeal committee, saying that the WHO is unable to reach a consensus on the amendments and that twelve of the proposed thirteen amendments were already dropped.
The next sign that the globalists were not getting their way came on Wednesday, May 25th. On behalf of its 47 AFRO members, Botswana read a statement, saying that they would be collectively withholding their support for the ‘reforms’, which many African members were very concerned about.
Multiple other countries also said they had reservations over the changes and would not be supporting them either.
These included Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Iran and Malaysia. Brazil in particular said it would exit WHO altogether rather than allow its population to be made subject to the new amendments.
In the end, the WHO and its wealthy nation supporters were forced to back down.
They have not given up though – far from it. Instead, they did what they always do and ‘pivoted’.
At their request, a new working group was convened to make “technical recommendations on the proposed amendments” which will be re-submitted along with the Pandemic Treaty, at the 77th Health Assembly meeting in 2024.
There has also been lots of push-back from Republicans in the US, with a number of them introducing new bills giving the US Congress/Senate powers to override any WHO mandates or directives issued as part of any international agreements.
One, called the ‘No WHO Pandemic Preparedness Treaty Without Senate Approval Act,’ has 15 co-sponsors and was introduced to the Senate on Thursday by Republican Senator Ron Johnson, who said “The sovereignty of the United States is not negotiable”.
Thanks to mainly African Nations, the power grab was thwarted. They probably had not forgotten previous vaccination campaigns, like the one for Tetanus, which left many women infertile.
Since Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was re-elected for another 5-year term as Director-General of the WHO, the world is advised to stay vigilant. Western powers are all too happy to give away National sovereignty.
One initiative that wants to continuously push back on the WHO’s ambiguous procedures and plans is the International Alliance for Justice and Democracy. On the last day of the WHA they held a press conference that served as a call to action for national and global decision makers, legal experts, and concerned citizens worldwide.
The world has shown that the power is still with we the people; it would be unwise to give it away.
