Fox News host Tucker Carlson is warning Americans about an ominous ‘pandemic treaty’ that would hand the World Health Organization immense power over Americans’ lives. Watch:
“So what will this operational control mean?” Carlson said. “Let’s be specific right off the bat. The treaty demands, quote, ‘national and global coordinated actions to address the misinformation, disinformation and stigmatization that undermine public health.’ Oh, here we go. Right to censorship.”
“People are criticizing us and for public health reasons that can’t be allowed if you criticize us, people will die,” he added. “So you saw yesterday, the Biden administration in the face of universal laughter and derision had to fire the head of its new Ministry of Truth, but they found another way to do it: ‘W.H.O. secretariat to build capacity, to deploy proactive counter-measures against misinformation and social media attacks’.”
“Oh, are you following this?” he said. “So they’re going to get to censor anybody who doesn’t agree with what they do as they control the intimate details of your life.”
“And they will control those details,” he said. “Under this treaty, the World Health Organization will get to establish vaccine passports and regulate travel. World Health Organization will quote, ‘develop standards for producing a digital version of the international certificate of vaccination and prophylaxis.’ Okay. So you may be thinking, “Well, it’s just about COVID and I went along with mandatory vaccines and vaccine passports at the time. How bad could it be?’
“First of all, if you went along with that, you should be repenting right about now,” he added with a derisive laugh.
President Joe Biden and world leaders recently made it clear at the recent ‘2nd Global Covid Summit‘ that the novel coronavirus was just the beginning.
“Prepare for the next health crisis because there will be others,” President Biden said in the clip.
“The pandemic is not over. And as it persists, it changes,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau added.
“It’s misguided to think this pandemic is over,” the WHO’s chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said. “The pandemic is not over anywhere until it’s over everywhere.”
“We cannot be complacent, because the pandemic is not over,” EU President Ursula von der Leyen added.
“But as we know too well, the pandemic is not over,” Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi remarked.
“The pandemic is not over,” another added. “Craving a return to a pre pandemic normalcy rather than acknowledging that the virus may have other plans.”
“The World Health Assembly this month, WHO will present a plan to strengthen the global architecture for health emergency preparedness, response and resilience,” Ghebreyesus said. “This includes the creation of a financial intermediary fund to support equitable access to life saving tools in the face of future epidemics and pandemics.”
“And we’re increasing our support for new pandemic preparedness and global health security fund that will be established at the World Bank this summer, with $450 million in seed funding,” Biden added.
“It is clear that a coordinated global response is required to combat future health emergencies,” Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi said.
“We continue our call to strengthen the global health security architecture with transparent, inclusive and collaborative processes,” Colombian President Iván Duque Márquez said.
“We support your proposal to set up a new fund for pandemic preparedness at the World Bank, operating in close coordination and cooperation with the WHO,” German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said.
“Come together to shape new international norms on these issues,” Vice President Kamala Harris said. “Together, we can establish common understandings that guide our collective action.”
“To strengthen the international health regulations and negotiate a new international instrument for pandemic prevention, preparedness and response,” New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said.
“Vaccines,” Trudeau remarked.
“Vaccines,” Biden echoes.
“We call for a policy commitment to boost vaccination,” Ghebreyesus stated.
“To help get shots in arms,” Harris remarked.
“Getting vaccines from tarmacs into arms,” Trudeau echoed.
“We also need to accelerate vaccine uptake and ensure vaccines make it into arms quickly and equitably,” U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas-Greenfield said.
“And sustain our efforts to get shots in people’s arms all around the world,” Biden added. “Expand access to treatment and save lives everywhere.”
The White House recently announced United States and other nations’ commitments to this Covid-19 response endeavor coming out of the global summit.
“The Summit garnered new financial commitments totaling $3.2 billion, not yet announced, above and beyond pledges made to date in 2022. This includes nearly $2.5 billion for COVID-19 and related response activities and $712 million in new commitments toward a new pandemic preparedness and global health security fund at the World Bank. (Note: This builds on $250 million previously pledged for this fund.) We encourage partners to join, as much more is needed to control COVID-19 and build better health security.”
The Biden administration is spearheading an initiative to amend International Health Regulations with a proposal (Provisional agenda item 16.2) to the World Health Assembly that was made public in April.
According to the proposal, amendments to the International Health Regulations (such as regarding lockdowns, border closures, mask mandates, and vaccine mandates) would purportedly come into effect for all 194 member states.
“Pursuant to paragraph 3 of Article 55 of the International Health Regulations (2005), any amendments to the Regulations adopted by the Health Assembly would come into force for all States Parties on the same terms, and subject to the same rights and obligations, as provided for in Article 22 of the Constitution of WHO and Articles 59 to 64 of the International Health Regulations (2005),” the proposal reads.
The Biden administration is also recommending the following: intensifying ‘health surveillance’ of all countries and citizens; creating a global communication network that reports to the WHO; grants the WHO the authority to sanction non-compliant countries; bestows authority to Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to declare pandemics or emergencies; recognizes the WHO’s authority to determine thes steps a country should take in a pandemic response, including vaccine mandates; and authorizes funding for the WHO in the event of a “pandemic.’
Legally, any and all international agreements and foreign treaties must abide by the rights and powers delegated to the U.S. government under the Constitution or else be rendered null and void as “unconstitutional.” Not that laws or constitutions have stopped communists before.
