Sen. Ron Johnson gets senators on record re: international contracts that enslave Americans to globalists through the World Health Organization and pharmaco-martial law.
Also delegation-of-authority research and a new podcast video.
March 27, 2023 - Kill Box. SGT Report. Todd Callender, Katherine Watt, Sean/SGT report (42 min.)
On March 28, 2023, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) proposed S.Amdt. 11 —
“To require any convention, agreement, or other international instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response reached by the World Health Assembly to be subject to Senate ratification”
— to S.316, a bill introduced by Sen. Tim Kaine, originally containing two provisions (largely symbolic) to repeal PL 102-1, Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution and PL 107-243, Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002.
S.316 passed on March 29, 2023, with no amendments, by a 66-30-4 vote.
For more information on the World Health Assembly process for adopting a new ‘pandemic treaty’ and also adopting new amendments to the World Health Organization International Health Regulations that have been in force since 1952 and amended in 1969, 1973, 1981, 2005 and in May 2022 — which are two different but interlocking geopolitical procedures — please see James Roguski’s Substack.
Roguski has done much more detailed research, writing and video presentation about the World Health Organization component of the intentional global fraud and mass murder program than I have, because I focus on the American domestic law components.
Start with Roguski’s Jan. 5, 2023 100 Reasons post, including his synopsis:
The World Health Organization is attempting a GLOBAL POWER GRAB by seeking to have the 194 member nations of the World Health Assembly adopt a completely new international agreement commonly referred to as the proposed “Pandemic Treaty” in addition to seeking to adopt proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations.
The proposed “Pandemic Treaty” would give the WHO control over “pathogens with pandemic potential” as well as control over the means of production within the Pharmaceutical, Hospital, Emergency Industrial Complex. It is an absolute abomination that must be stopped.
The proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations would make the WHO’s proclamations legally-binding rather than just advisory recommendations. The proposed amendments seek to institute global digital health certificates, dramatically increase the billions of dollars available to the WHO and enable nations to implement the regulations WITHOUT respect for the dignity, human rights and fundamental freedoms of people.
Agreement by a simple majority of the 194 member nations is all that is needed to adopt the amendments because, as amendments to an existing agreement, neither the advice and consent of the United States Senate, nor the signature of the President would be required.
These proposed amendments are being negotiated in secret without any opportunity for comment by people from around the world.
I don’t know how the puppet pseudo-government1 officials occupying Washington DC classify the proposed new pandemic treaty or the amendments to the International Health Regulations, nor which American constitutional, statutory or regulatory provisions they may construe as providing legal authority for their acts of adoption, ratification and enforcement of such foreign policy instruments.
Roguski’s work includes pointed legal questions directed at Richard Visek, Acting Legal Adviser to the Secretary of State, and requests for documents, including delegation of authority letters.
Roguski notes that the 2005 International Health Regulations were adopted as a “sole executive agreement,” citing a September 2010 Kaiser Family Foundation report, U.S. Participation in International Health Treaties, Commitments, Partnerships and Other Agreements, at p. 9:
…Among the 26 legally binding international health agreements identified, the U.S. is party to 16 as follows:
Thirteen of twenty-one international health-related treaties: Eight were signed and ratified by the U.S. as treaties under U.S. law (with advice and consent of the Senate), four that address a particular health issue, and four that establish organizations working either directly or indirectly on health issues. Five were concluded by the U.S. as executive agreements, including the International Health Regulations (IHR 2005) and establishment of the World Bank. One of these executive agreements, the IHR (2005), was concluded through a sole executive agreement; the remaining four were concluded as congressional executive agreements…”
For reference, the 2005 IHR are the pseudo-binding international pseudo-regulations that underpin the entire American pseudo-statutory framework for the pseudo-legal global kill box predicated on ‘public health emergency’ government power centralization.
For general information on the differences between treaties and executive agreements, see Georgetown Law Library, Distinguishing Treaties From Executive Agreements
Under U.S. law, the term “treaty” is reserved for international agreements submitted by the executive branch to the U.S. Senate for its advice and consent. Only if the Senate ratifies a treaty by a two-thirds majority may the treaty enter into force.
International agreements that enter into force without the advice and consent of the Senate are often referred to generically as “executive agreements.”
Bear in mind that this generic term encompasses three distinct types of agreements:
Agreements concluded on the basis of the president's constitutional authority (executive agreements);
Agreements concluded pursuant to a statute enacted by Congress (congressional-executive agreements); and
Agreements concluded pursuant to the terms of a duly ratified treaty…
Back to the United States Congress and the ongoing attempts of members like Rand Paul and Ron Johnson, to break out of their puppet status and act like real statesmen.
On March 22, Sen. Rand Paul proposed an amendment to repeal PL 107-40, the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force that purported to Congressionally-authorize US military attacks on all the world’s people, without geographic or temporal limitations, called the ‘Global War on Terror,’ and passed under the 1973 War Powers Act, 50 U.S. Code § 1541.
Like Sen. Paul’s March 22 amendment, Sen. Johnson’s March 28 amendment (seeking Senate ratification of WHO treaties and treaty-like international contracts) did not get the required two-thirds support to be added to the original bill.
Sen. Johnson’s amendment failed by a 47-49-4 vote.
Like Sen. Paul’s amendment, Sen. Johnson’s amendment created a very useful roll call record of the positions currently held by each US Senator, on the legitimacy of the globalists’ long-running chemical and biological warfare programs, disguised as pandemic and public health emergency management programs, and carried out through international treaties, executive agreements, regulations and other legal instruments, as negotiated and adopted by national delegates to the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization, but not subject to meaningful review or ratification by the legislatures of formerly sovereign nations.
Unlike Sen. Paul’s amendment, the roll call vote on the pandemic-predicated global centralization of governing power fell on almost-pure party lines.
47 Republican senators voted “Yea,” in support of their own authority to participate meaningfully — as representatives of the People — in sovereign foreign policy and pharmaceutical war-making decisions.
45 Democrats, three Independents and one Republican senator voted “Nay,” explicitly abdicating their own authority to participate in foreign policy and war-making decisions, and explicitly consenting to the status quo: the dictatorial, lethal exercise of unchecked governing power by the President, Cabinet secretaries and their delegees over a non-consenting population.
Four Senators didn’t vote, due to absence for illness or other reasons.
This party-line split is very interesting.
Delegation of authority research
Because of Jim Roguski’s WHO work, and Sasha Latypova’s contract analysis (especially Feb. 27, 2023 - You cannot contract for a crime, but you CAN write a contract for it! and March 7, 2023 - Part 2 of "Contracts for Crimes") I’ve been flagging references to “delegation of authority” whenever I find them, and looking for the constitutional, statutory and/or regulatory authorities the criminals currently occupying government offices cite to pseudo-justify their criminal assaults on the people of the world.
I located some legislative and regulatory records yesterday, on power transfers enacted by Congress in September 2018, implemented by HHS through Federal Register notices, and extended by Congress in December 2022.
These mechanisms appear — on initial reads — to transfer international contract oversight power from the US Senate to the Secretary of State; then from the Secretary of State to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS); then from the HHS Secretary to the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and finally from the CDC Director to the CDC Chief Operating Officer.
I’ll read and think about this collection of records more, because I think they may help answer the question:
What is the legal, foreign policy-law mechanism through which the American people and the US Congress are shut out of international treaty negotiation, amendment and ratification procedures, through the World Health Assembly/World Health Organization globalist governing institutions, under public health emergency pretexts?
Do the records identified below form part of relevant mechanisms of Congressional disempowerment?
I don’t know. It may hinge on whether the acting, fraudulent US Government construes international treaty negotiation, ratification and related acts as proper subject matter for “personal services contracts” that are outside the review and oversight of Congress.
This, of course, seems absurd.
But we already know how the globalists have successfully perverted procurement contracting regulations (Other Transactions Authority programs) and drug safety regulations (FDA Emergency Use Authorization programs) to render otherwise criminal acts as pseudo-legal and keep Congress and the American people from seeing and understanding the scale and scope of the central bankers’ criminal enterprises.
Perversion of “personal services contract” law to pseudo-empower people impersonating US Government administrative state officials to wholly exclude Congress from the conduct of foreign policy and war, would fit the pattern.
The legal paper trail so far includes:
Aug. 1, 1956 State Department Basic Authorities Act, PL 84-885, codified at 22 USC 2669. “…The Secretary of State, may use funds appropriated or otherwise available to the Secretary to— (c) employ individuals or organizations, by contract, for services abroad and individuals employed by contract to perform such services shall not by virtue of such employment be considered to be employees of the United States Government; […] and such contracts are authorized to be negotiated, the terms of the contracts to be prescribed, and the work to be performed, where necessary, without regard to such statutory provisions as relate to the negotiation, making, and performance of contracts and performance of work in the United States…”
Sept. 28, 2018 Department of Defense and Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Act, 2019 and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019, PL 115-245; Division B - Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019; Title II - Health and Human Services; Section 212(1) - “…permits the Secretary of HHS to exercise authority equivalent to that available to the Secretary of State under 22 U.S.C 2669(c)…”
March 17, 2020 HHS-CDC Delegation of Authority Notice, 85 Federal Register 17334 (March 24, 2020), delegating Secretary of State-level authority from HHS Secretary to CDC Director to CDC Chief Operating Officer “…to carry out international health activities to respond to the current and any future Ebola, polio, and coronavirus outbreaks…[and] to award personal services contracts for work performed in foreign countries. The authority delegated herein includes the authority to determine the necessity of negotiating, executing, and performing such contracts without regard to statutory provisions as related to the negotiation, making, and performance of contracts and performance of work in the United States…”
Jan. 31, 2022 HHS-CDC Delegation of Authority Notice, 87 Federal Register 6551 (Feb. 4, 2022). “…The authority under section 212(1) is immediately revoked in the event that any subsequent fiscal year [Congressional] HHS appropriations act does not contain the provision currently in section 212(1) or substantially similar authority…”
Dec. 29, 2022 Consolidated Appropriations Act, PL 117-328; HR-2617; Division H - Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2023; Title II - Health and Human Services; Section 212(1): “…The [HHS] Secretary may exercise authority equivalent to that available to the Secretary of State in section 2(c) [22 USC 2669(c)] of the State Department Basic Authorities Act of 1956…”
