Here's How WHO Can Control America

May 27, 2022

A few members of Congress naively claim that the World Health Organization (WHO) cannot force America to change its laws or cede our sovereignty. But not only CAN U.N. agencies force us to change our laws, they already have. That’s why we must stop Joe Biden from ceding sovereignty to WHO. His amendments, and even new ones released this week in Geneva, are still alive and can be passed at any moment.

Read on to learn what’s next in the quest to stop Joe Biden from ceding American freedom to the United Nations’ WHO. —Mat

STOP BIDEN’S PLAN TO CEDE US SOVEREIGNTY!

Yesterday, a supporter forwarded me a letter from their congressman, responding to our messaging on Joe Biden’s proposed amendments to the World Health Organization’s International Health Regulations (IHR). I’m not going to name names, but this member of Congress has been willfully misinformed.

The congressman claimed:

Some of the rumors also state that certain amendments being considered in the upcoming Assembly risk the United States' sovereignty and rule of law. While it is true that the WHO is having an Assembly to vote on international health care practices and global response initiatives, no proposal or rule passed by an international organization, whether it be the WHO or the United Nations, supersedes United States law or the power of the United States government to dictate our own policies.

There’s only one problem with the congressman’s statement: It’s false, and demonstrably so.

Like WHO, the World Trade Organization (WTO) is a subdivision of the United Nations. The U.S. Senate voted to join WTO in 1995. In doing so, the Senate agreed in advance to accept any future and unknown changes to the WTO charter that were approved by a majority of WTO members.

At the time, then-Congressman Newt Gingrich warned, “We need to be honest about the fact that we are transferring from the United States at a practical level significant authority to a new organization. This is a transformational moment. I would feel better if the people who favor this would just be honest about the scale of change.... Twenty years from now we will look back on this as a very important defining moment.”

In 2008, WTO members Canada and Mexico dragged the United States before the International World Court at The Hague, Netherlands. The U.S. was being sued because our national laws conflicted with the WTO agreement!

The World Court found America “guilty” of violating WTO rules. The court gave Canada and Mexico permission to levy over 1 billion dollars in financial penalties and fines against the U.S. Those fines would continue until and unless we changed our national laws.

On December 21, 2015, the United States Congress was forced to pass legislation repealing important “country of origin labeling laws” to appease the United Nations’ WTO.

Save our Sovereignty!

As it stands right now, it is illegal for meat packers to tell you whether your meat was raised in South Dakota or Wuhan, China, thanks to a 1995 congressional decision to cede American sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable globalist body.

Today, it’s happening again.

WHO was founded as an arm of the United Nations in 1948 and operates much the same way as its U.N. cousin, WTO. Once a nation joins, that nation is bound by the WHO’s rules—even if those rules change in the future and even if the nation did not vote for the rule changes.

Like the WTO, any country which violates the WHO agreement can and will be dragged before the World Court of Arbitration and punished until it complies.

And as we have already seen with the “Country of Origin Labeling” case, a U.N. global organization CAN force dissident nations to change their laws.

Joe Biden’s proposed changes to the current WHO International Health Regulations will bind the hands of any future congress or president to obey ONLY the WHO leader in times of “public health emergencies.”

And a “public health emergency” doesn’t just apply to illnesses. The Biden amendments seek to add animal rights and environmental concerns (i.e., “climate change” measures) to give unprecedented global authority to WHO.

As a result, WHO could declare anything from “Green New Deal” initiatives, animal rights laws and abortion access to be a “public health emergency.”

We’ve already ceded far too much of our sovereignty to unelected, unaccountable globalist organizations seeking to rule the world. Congress must now stand as one and DEMAND Joe Biden either withdraw the amendments, leave WHO ... or BOTH.

We are working with members of Congress to push back, but they also need to hear from you. Partner with us to strengthen our hands in this battle. Our Challenge Grant will DOUBLE the impact of your gift. And support our mission by signing up for recurring monthly donations.
