On the relationship between the World Health Organization and the US government.
Comment posted to Jeff Childers’ Coffee and Covid Substack today.
Jeff Childers posted another excellent snark-fest today, including mention of US-proposed amendments to the World Health Organization International Health Regulations of 2005 and the global grassroots campaign to stop the amendments, to protect US sovereignty.
As many of you know, the U.S. and the World Health Organization, which President Trump tried to de-fund, are all set to sign a revised agreement in two weeks that observers say will give the global health agency sovereign control over US citizens in cases of emergency. And the WHO gets to declare the emergencies.
I’ve held off writing about this developing story because it isn’t clear to me what can be done to stop the revised agreement from being signed. It appears that the Biden Administration needs no further authorization from Congress in order to move forward. It appears we went off the rails back when the original agreement was authorized. I predict we’ll need lawsuits attacking the agreement. Lots of them.
As I’ve written a few times already, I think US sovereignty is already gone, by the transitive power of public health emergency.
Theoretically, US-HHS secretary could declare the public health emergency over and restore the primacy of the US constitution. This is how HHS responded to commenters concerned about sovereignty issues, in a Jan. 19, 2017 Federal Register final rule-making.
In practice, though, I think the US-HHS is at the center of the global public health police state apparatus, and is coordinating the extension of the emergency indefinitely, because the US has an extremely well-developed domestic public-health-based police state set up in the domestic statutes and regulations.
For example, HHS already has the power, through a combination of Congressional statutes, implementing regulations and Presidential executive orders, to order local law enforcement officers and federal military officers to arrest and involuntarily, indefinitely detain American citizens on the sole basis of HHS claiming people are asymptomatic carriers of SARS. See 42 USC 264b, 42 CFR 70.6, and President Obama’s July 31, 2014 Executive Order 13674.
In other words, HHS is the American branch of the WHO, and already has a higher allegiance to the WHO Constitution than the US Constitution, even before the US-proposed (Jan. 18, 2022) amendments to the 2005 International Health Regulations get passed and/or WHO members adopt a new “pandemic treaty” to supplement the sovereignty-stripping provisions of the existing 2005 IHR, which are, if I understand correctly, two separate proposals currently on the WHO table at the World Health Assembly.
Trump seemed to understand this, evidenced by his attempt to withdraw the US from WHO back in July 2020 and withdrawal of US funding, but Biden reversed Trump’s decisions and reinstated funding as one of his first executive acts after inauguration in January 2021.
I’ve done two long reports on these issues so far, and write smaller updates as I find additional evidence of the treason committed by Congress, US presidents and US-HHS secretaries to void the US constitution and subject US citizens — on paper at least — to WHO control.
The first long report is an overview of relevant international agreements, US presidential executive orders, US statutes, US judicial decisions and US agency regulations.
The second one is focused on American statutes and regulations.
The more I’ve learned, the more I think the most fruitful legal strategy will be for a group of US attorneys, backed by a grassroots citizen movement, to prosecute members of Congress, presidents and HHS secretaries for treason (18 USC 2381) based on the actions they’ve already taken — amply supported in the public record — to subordinate the US Constitution and the US government to the WHO, endangering the God-given lives and freedoms of Americans.
I think other legal challenges have been preemptively blocked.
