 Who’s on First at the WHO?

The CCP Runs It — and We Must Leave It

WASHINGTON — Over the past two weeks, U.S. and other members of the World Health Organization (WHO) have been negotiating on ways to give sweeping new powers to the WHO’s Director-General, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus. Through material changes to existing international health regulations and/or a new pandemic accord, Dr. Tedros would be able to declare actual or potential “public health emergencies of international concern” in any country on the basis of privately supplied information and without the agreement of the nation(s) affected. Worse yet, he can unilaterally dictate what must be done in response.

The idea of granting the WHO and its leadership such potentially fraught authorities is all the more problematic in light of their imperious, and actually malfeasant, conduct at the direction of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. But, with the active collusion of the Biden administration in what would amount to an unprecedented surrender of U.S. sovereignty, the approval of one or both of these agreements is likely — all other things being equal — to happen when the World Health Assembly meets in May 2023. The new WHO authorities would become provisionally binding on member states, irrespective of whether not they ultimately endorse them (i.e., in the case of the United States, through Senate ratification or other form of congressional approval).

Especially troubling is the convergence of these initiatives with measures promoted by the WHO to institute global digital identity cards to document and monitor vaccination status and other medical conditions. When combined with the proliferating introduction of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), these “smart” IDs would facilitate efforts to monitor, control and enforce the WHO’s diktats, and punish those who defy them.

In remarks on Saturday, former President Donald Trump announced that, if reelected, he would once again direct the withdrawal of the United States from the World Health Organization — whose acronym he suggested would better be applied to “We Hide Outbreaks.”

The next Committee on the Present Danger: China (CPDC) webinar, “Who’s on First at the WHO: The CCP Runs It — and We Must Leave It,” will examine these and related topics and the imperative need for the Congress to act, perhaps through the debate on Debt Ceiling relief, to extract the U.S. from the WHO. The webinar will occur from 1-2:15 p.m. ET Tuesday, March 7, 2023.
