Flying Baby Formula In From Europe: ‘Turned Us Into 3rd World Nation’

OK, so you didn’t like the previous administration. I’m happy to hear how this is better. mrossol

Democrat President Joe Biden was mocked over the weekend for bragging about flying 70,000 pounds of baby formula from Europe to the U.S. as his administration has faced criticism for the shortage of baby formula across the country.

“Folks, I’m excited to tell you that the first flight from Operation Fly Formula is loaded up with more than 70,000 pounds of infant formula and about to land in Indiana,” President Biden tweeted Sunday. “Our team is working around the clock to get safe formula to everyone who needs it.”

Biden originally claimed on Twitter that his administration had brought in “70,000 tons” of baby formula which was later deleted, but not before it went viral on social media.

Biden faced a mix of mockery and intense criticism online for bragging about the situation.

“Over 10,000 children are born daily in the US, 20% of which will use formula within the first days of life,” Nicole Saphier, MD, wrote on Twitter. “The shipment is great, but let’s be honest, the supply won’t last more than a couple days.”

The popular conservative Twitter account Comfortably Smug wrote, “Biden has turned us into a third world nation where other countries are sending us relief aid.”

Other notable responses included:

  • Stephen L. Miller, political commentator: “Another Biden Admin historic airlift.”
  • Julie Gunlock, director of Independent Women’s Network: “The Biden admin created this mess…but sure, folks, take a bow.”
  • Ellen Carmichael, president of The Lafayette Co.: “Will never not be discomfiting to see other countries bailing us out for stupid policy decisions. This is America.”
  • Jesse Kelly, radio host: “The government causing a baby formula bottleneck with ridiculous regulations and then causing a baby formula shortage with incompetence and then acting like a hero for flying in baby formula is the most government thing in the history of government things.”
  • Preston Byrne, attorney: “If you just allowed European formula to be sold to US distributors you wouldn’t need the military to fly in pallets for show Abolish the FDA.”
  • Victoria Coates, former White House official: “Honestly I think it might have been better to just sit this one out and hope folks weren’t paying too much attention on a Sunday morning to your previous effort?”
  • James Jay Carafano, Heritage Foundation Vice President for Foreign & Security: “Only this White House could attempt to make virtue out of its incompetence.”
  • Tammy Bruce, Fox News: “You have officially turned our great country into Blanche DuBois, unstable and completely reliant on the kindness of strangers.”
  • Hans Mahncke, political commentator: “Probably the most humiliating tweet of all time (made even more humiliating by the fact that the millennials who wrote it are oblivious to how humiliating it is).”
  • Zack Kanter, political commentator: “It’s a reverse Berlin Airlift, where we’re blockading ourselves and flying in our own shipments to prevent the starvation that we’re at risk of causing.”
  • Sean Spicer, former White House official: “There has been a baby formula shortage in the US since January – we a[re] less than 10 days from June.”
  • John Cardillo, political commentator: “This senile idiot is impressed that third world countries are solving problems he and his handlers created.”
  • John Cooper, The Heritage Foundation: “How bad are things under Joe Biden? We have to fly in baby formula from Germany to make sure American babies don’t starve.”

Coffee & Covid. Monday, May 23, 2022: BABY AIRLIFT

He is not making this stuff up.  They couldn’t make it up on SNL. “And you are voting for who?”  mrossol

*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY*

🔥 Late last week, Elon Musk went shopping for lawyers on Twitter. He tweeted, “Tesla is building a hardcore litigation department … [that] will report directly to me. Please send 3 to 5 bullet points describing evidence of exceptional ability.”

In a followup, Musk promised that, if defending a lawsuit, he would never try to win a lawsuit if the people suing Tesla were justified. And he pledged that if the claims were unjust, he would never settle.

In a further followup, possibly explaining why he was using a non-traditional way to find counsel, Musk said he was “Looking for hardcore streetfighters, not white-shoe lawyers … There will be blood.”

I have to admit, it sounds like fun. What do you think? Should I throw my helmet into the Thunderdome? Or keep on fighting for the Constitution? Let me know in the comments.

🔥 Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro said late last week that he won’t be signing any WHO “pandemic treaty.” Maybe we should reject it, too?

🔥 Over the weekend, the hashtag “#BillGatesBioTerrorist” secured the top spot on Twitter.

🔬 JAMA published a research letter last week titled, “Routine Surveillance and Vaccination on a University Campus During the Spread of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron Variant.” The researches studied nearly 20,000 Cornell students’ de-identified covid data. Check out the conclusion:

Cornell’s experience shows that traditional public health interventions were not a match for Omicron. While vaccination protected against severe illness, it was not sufficient to prevent rapid spread, even when combined with other public health measures including widespread surveillance testing.

It’s not clear how they determined that the jabs protected against severe illness because the students are in one of the least affected demographics anyway.

The bottom line is, Cornell required its elite students to wear masks, get boosted (97% jabbed), PCR tests every week, and be immediately contact traced. In spite of all that “safety” nonsense, the mask mandates completely failed, and 98.6% of reported covid cases were breakthrough infections.

When will the public health experts concede that all their dumb ideas blew up on the launch pad creating a bill for injuries that is still being calculated? Could it have something to do with how it only took 14 months to go from “I will shut down the virus” and “build back better” to “there WILL be food shortages?”

📈 Gas was $7.29 a gallon in LA yesterday. Over just the last two weeks, the average price of gas in the US reached $4.71 per gallon, and JP Morgan predicted an average of $6 a gallon by August, which seems, well, optimistic at this rate.

🔥 Over the weekend, former senator Joe Biden tweeted that his Administration just delivered “70,000 tons” of infant formula to Indiana.

The problem was, it was 70,000 POUNDS, not tons. Pounds, Joe. Sadly, we have a disinformer at the top of the government, somebody should probably call the gov … oh. Never mind. Anyway, they deleted his tweet after a short period of relentless Twitter mocking, I mean misinformation, sorry, I mean domestic terrorism.

I have SO many questions about this story. It ran with great fanfare over the weekend, with stories showing a tarmacked C-150 cargo plane loaded with pallets of … something, I guess it could be baby formula. We trust the media, right?

Anyway. Why is the MILITARY airlifting baby formula? To INDIANA. Are we a third-world country now? Don’t answer that. The question is, why not Fedex? I mean, Fedex SPECIALIZES in delivering retail products fast. That’s their WHOLE JOB. Or what about AMAZON? Or, why not just ship the formula straight to Indiana in a couple semi’s, right in the containers it came in? And, where did the formula COME FROM? Why can’t WE just order the formula for ourselves, right from the source? Do they have a website?

The whole thing looks just like those staged Chinese psyop photo ops in the New York Times showing thirty government workers unloading ten boxes of food from the back of a semi in Shanghai. Totally staged. Totally fake. Makes no sense.

Stop propagandizing us.

🔥 ABC News ran a story last week headlined, “Carbon Removal Technologies To Get $3.5B Federal Investment.” The sub-head explained, “The federal government is investing in machines that suck giant amounts of carbon dioxide out of the air in the hopes of reducing damage from climate change.”

Spoiler alert. In the 2006 movie “Idiocracy,” time travelers discovered that the future US was starving because the government required farmers to use orange soda instead of water on their crops. But they had no idea why the plants were dying.

Now it’s 2022, and it’s real life. Don’t plants NEED carbon dioxide? I mean, even if these newly-enriched contractors COULD build billion-dollar machines big enough to make a difference, and even if the machines WOULDN’T create more carbon than they remove from the air, setting all those valid objections aside, what if the machines ACTUALLY WORK? Are they SURE there won’t be any unintended consequences? How do the plants feel about this?

We’ve GOT to be in a simulation, right? And it has a new head programmer with a really twisted sense of humor? Please tell me I’m dreaming all this.

🙈 Yesterday, the Epoch Times published an article headlined, “Biden Sounds Alarm on Monkeypox as CDC Alerts American Doctors.” Speaking to reporters in South Korea, Biden said the pox is something “everybody should be concerned about,” adding, “We’re working on it hard” — that’s what SHE said — “to figure out what we do and what vaccine, if any, may be available for it.”

Great, a new vaccine. According to Epoch, as of May 21st, about 80 cases of monkeypox have been reported in Australia, the United States, Canada, and Europe. Weird how the small number of cases unnaturally broke out all over the world at the same time.

BBC News ran an article this morning headlined, “World faces big challenges over Covid, monkeypox and wars – WHO.” For some reason the story is tagged on the BBC’s website with “Russia-Ukraine War.”

The WHO held an “emergency meeting” yesterday to discuss the new outbreak. That’s not our only problem. Channeling multiple chapters from the Book of Revelation, WHO chief Tedros Ghebreyesus said, “We face a formidable convergence of disease, drought, famine and war, fuelled by climate change, inequity and geopolitical rivalry.”

Geopolitical rivalry and wars? Since when is that the WHO’s business?

Regarding the pox, experts are baffled. The pox appears to be genetically identical to an already existing strain, and the BBC said “currently there is little evidence to suggest this is a new variant.”

Who needs evidence?

🙈 Reminder: there was a monkeypox outbreak in six states in the US in 2003, supposedly from, and I am not making this up, infected pet prairie dogs. At that time, there were 72 cases reported, most of which were mild, and no deaths. In July 2021, there was a case of monkeypox reported in Dallas, and in November, one in Maryland. Right now in 2022 we only have a few reported cases in the US. So why the freakout? Could it have anything to do with elevated levels of shingles (i.e., chickenPOX)?

💉 The White House’s Covid Czar, Dr. Ashish Jha, predicted this weekend that Americans will have to deal with covid by regularly taking vaccines — for the indefinite future.

CNN’s John Berman asked Jha, “what does that mean? Does that mean we are going to be getting shots every six months? My wife just got her fourth shot, right, she had her two initial shots plus a booster, plus a booster. Are we talking two shots a year?”

Jha replied, “in the short run, yeah, like, we have had to boost people about every six months. Over the long run, I am confident we will develop more durable vaccines, the virus will also settle down. And so my hope is over the long run, this comes down to maybe a once a year shot, but right now we’re having to boost people a little bit more frequently because of how quickly the virus has continued to evolve.”

MY hope is that Jha doesn’t get HIS hope.

*THE MINORITY REPORT*

🚀 Yesterday, the Epoch Times ran a story headlined, “Gen. Milley Warns West Point Graduates of Likelihood of War With Russia, China.” General Mark Milley is the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs. His pronouns are he/him and they/them. Mercifully, Milley still identifies as male. No offense, ladies.

Milley addressed the graduates with the cheerful message that the US is rapidly losing its military advantage on the global stage, that Chinese artificial intelligence bots will ’swarm’ our soldiers and battle tech with tiny killer robots, and that “the world you’re being commissioned into has the potential for significant international conflict between great powers — and that potential is increasing, not decreasing.”

What could be making the potential for world conflict increase? It’s baffling.

Have a marvelous Monday! I’ll see you guys back here tomorrow morning.

Coffee & Covid, Friday, May 20, 2022: FERTILIZER

By Jeff Childers

*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY*

🔥 Commenting on the “pause” of Joe Biden’s new Disinformation Governance Board, the New York Times ran a story yesterday headlined, “A Panel to Combat Disinformation Becomes a Victim of It.”

Here’s the hilarious first sentence from the article, get ready: “The Department of Homeland Security announced on Wednesday that it was suspending the work of an internal advisory board intended to combat disinformation after what the department described as a deliberate disinformation campaign.”

Hahahahahaha! They’re blaming the failure of the Disinformation Board on DISINFORMATION. Folk, you simply cannot make this stuff up. If I did, you’d never believe me. These stories make me wonder if we really ARE living in a simulation.

Anyway, it’s too late now! Disinformation has grown too powerful! It destroys all who dare oppose it, even disinformation experts like TikTok darling and Ukraine whisperer Nina Jankowicz.

Poor Nina. The 33-year old Clinton-Fulbright scholar who’s written two books on disinformation was completely taken by surprise, and practically hurled her resignation at DHS faster than an Olympic athlete can throw a javelin. The Times says, trigger warning, that Jankowicz faced “vitriolic and highly personal harassment and abuse online.”

My gosh! Not vitriolic online abuse! Highly personal, not just regular personal? What has happened to this country, when a budding young dictator can’t get constant praise and adulation online, like she did on TikTok? Didn’t people hear her singing voice? This is a shame and an embarrassment. The poor kid never saw it coming. She only wanted to help. NOBODY could have predicted this would happen.

The president of marxist front-group Media Matters, Angelo Carusone, said “officials should have anticipated better. Instead, they seemed caught off guard by the response.”

Twitter avatar for @mattgaetzMatt Gaetz @mattgaetz

We’ve killed the Ministry of Truth!

🙈 I’ll keep following the monkeypox story because it is a great example of media hysteria, and because it suggests something mysterious and unidentified could be weakening immune systems and giving old diseases new life, and not because the disease poses any kind of real threat to anybody. Your chances of choking on a Brazilian olive pit are higher than the risks of catching this gross skin disease.

Anyway, Reuters ran a story yesterday headlined, “Britain Offers Smallpox Shot As Monkeypox Cases Spread In Europe.” It says that the shots are being offered to healthcare workers and “those who may have been exposed to the virus.” That was fast.

Who are the folks who may have been exposed to the virus? Reuters said “in Britain, the UKHSA has highlighted that the recent cases in the country were predominantly among men who self-identified as gay, bisexual or men who have sex with men.” Oh. Jimmy Whitworth, professor of international public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, explained “this isn’t going to cause a nationwide epidemic like COVID did.”

Oh no? Well then let’s cover it 24 x 7 with breathless breaking reports!

💉 I’m not suggesting anything. I’m just reminding you that in November 2020, Forbes ran a nice vaccine explainer headlined “Here’s What You Need To Know About AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 Vaccine.”

One of the things Forbes thought you should know is how the most widely-used covid vaccine in Europe, AstraZeneca, was developed. The financial mag explained:

> “The AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine is a chimpanzee adenovirus-vectored vaccine. This means that the company took a virus that normally infects chimpanzees, and genetically modified it to avoid any possible disease consequences in people.”

They used a genetically modified monkey virus. That’s a weird coincidence, don’t you think?

🔥 You want to hear another weird coincidence? In November of last year, a “global security” NGO called NTI reported that it had “partnered with the Munich Security Conference to conduct a tabletop exercise on reducing high-consequence biological threats.”

Thank goodness.

The particular threat that they looked at was … an outbreak of a genetically modified strain of monkeypox. According to NTI, “The fictional exercise scenario portrayed a deadly, global pandemic involving an unusual strain of monkeypox virus that first emerged in the fictional nation of Brinia and spread globally over 18 months.”

Here’s the link to NTI’s announcement: [Strengthening Global Systems to Prevent and Respond to High-Consequence Biological Threats]

🔥 This next story is completely unexpected good news and a potential global game changer. Try to follow me here. Vox ran an article about a new Fifth-Circuit court decision headlined, “A Wild New Court Decision Would Blow Up Much Of The Government’s Ability To Operate.”

Sounds good so far, right?

I’m going to try to summarize the dense facts and relevant law at the risk of loss of perfect accuracy. In short, the new case was about a guy accused by the SEC of securities fraud who had been tried in an “administrative court.” Administrative courts are set up by the federal agencies themselves and so they are part of the executive branch and not the judicial branch, even though they are “courts.”

There has long been a dispute about the constitutionality of these administrative courts and whether they violate the Constitution. Many courts, including the Supreme Court, have historically approved of these executive-branch courts, while the most conservative originalist judges have criticized them. Justice Scalia, for example, wrote extensively toward the end of his life that, although he’d supported these executive-branch courts for much of his career, he’d ultimately changed his mind. Scalia felt that the “administrative state” had grown too large and too powerful and needed to be pruned back.

Many legal scholars and lawyers like me have long complained about a central Supreme Court holding referred to as “Chevron Deference,” which says that regular courts must DEFER to these executive-branch courts when they making rulings in those subject matter areas. Like when an SEC administrative court finds citizens violated criminal securities regulations. So regular courts are prohibited from carrying out their constitutional duty of ruling on those types of cases except when narrow exceptions occur.

You guys with me so far?

In the new case, a hedge fund manager named Jarkesy was found civilly and criminally liable by the SEC’s administrative court for allegedly lying to his investors. Jarkesy sued in federal court, arguing that he could have only been tried in a judicial-branch court, mainly because he’s entitled to trial by a jury of his peers, which administrative courts cannot provide.

The holding gets a little technical, but basically Circuit Judge Jennifer Elrod, writing for the majority, held that the SEC’s administrative court WAS unconstitutional. “The Seventh Amendment guarantees petitioners a jury trial because the S.E.C.’s enforcement action is akin to traditional actions at law to which the jury-trial right attaches,” Judge Elrod wrote.

And then the leftwing twitter-verse went WILD. Although the decision is only binding in three states, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, it provides precedent not only for people accused of SEC violations but also in thirty other federal agencies that have their own administrative law courts. Lower courts in those three states must follow the new case law, which will create a lot of problems for those agencies.

So Biden has a decision to make. If he appeals, the decision could go to the US Supreme Court, which might just agree with the late Justice Scalia that it is time to do some heavy pruning in the overgrown administrative law garden. We can hope. If they uphold it, this decision could become law for the entire US, effectively accomplishing what Scalia wanted, to eliminate the doctrine of Chevron Deference, and restore the proper balance of power between the executive and judicial branches.

This prospect terrifies liberals, since, Mr. Magoo-like, they can only visualize an immediate future in which they control all the federal agencies. They want as much power invested in the executive branch as possible, such as by giving it its own court system, so they can govern in an authoritarian fashion.

We will continue to watch the case develop with great interest. It could be a complete game-changer.

🚀 *THE MINORITY REPORT* 🚀

🚀 Well, well, well. In advance of the vote to send another $40 billion dollars to Ukraine, and on the heels of Jurassic-era democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to the war-ravaged streets of Ukraine, a delegation of old-line Republican lawmakers also courageously penetrated the explosive military corridors to pay their vast and undying respects to former dancer and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, or Zelenskyy, or whatever his real name is.

McConnell, disguised for security purposes in a blue suit, was supported by co-adventurers and GOP senators John Barrasso of Wyoming, Susan Collins of Maine and John Cornyn of Texas.

Mitch felt the trip was very inspiring. “It was inspiring,” he said, “to visit the historic capital of a beautiful country that has been forced to fight for its own survival.” McConnell feels like the U.S. has NO CHOICE but to fight for Ukraine, and that’s why he had to go in person. Zoom just wouldn’t do. Never mind the risks, he doesn’t care about his own life. He lives to serve. “It is squarely in our national interest to help Ukraine achieve victory in this war and to help Ukraine and other countries deter other wars of aggression before they start,” he explained.

Hey Mitch. Now do the border.

🚀 NPR ran a headline yesterday, “Biden Backs Sweden and Finland’s NATO Membership Application.”

The stumbly mumbler explained that the world would be much more peaceful and stable if NATO admits the two Scandinavian countries, since before now Sweden has always been neutral and Finland shares a border with Russia, and Putin would probably absolutely love to have NATO shifting a bunch of military equipment into his next door neighbor’s yard.

Of course, Putin is just a babbling paranoid idiot who sees a conspiracy everywhere he looks, or something. Biden promised, “New members joining NATO is not a threat to any nation.” So that’s settled.

But NPR noted that Turkey, which holds veto power, continues to oppose the two new members. “We are following developments concerning Sweden and Finland, but we are not of a favorable opinion,” Turkish president Erdogan said last week.

So.

🚀 The Wall Street Journal reported this week that “European Foreign Ministers Fail to Sway Hungary on Russian Oil Ban.” Like Turkey on NATO membership, Hungry has been the obstacle to EU membership for Finland and Sweden, who now suddenly want to join up, for no particular reason.

Hungary also opposes the ban on Russian oil, for the simple reason that it gets most of its oil from Russia. This month Hungary also just re-elected its popular prime minister, Viktor Orban, who is said to be friendly with the Kremlin, maybe because his country gets most of its oil from there. Possibly.

The EU REALLY REALLY wants to add Finland and Sweden to its membership lists, though. So they are putting real euros on the table. The Journal reported, “European diplomats have held out hope for weeks that Mr. Orban could be brought on board with financial support.” Name your price, Hungary.

That price could be pretty steep. In the article, the WSJ explained, “Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto claimed an EU embargo on Russian oil would require a ‘complete modernization’ of the country’s energy system that would cost between 15 billion and 18 billion euros, or about $15.7 billion and $18.8 billion.” Your move, Brussels.

Ha, ha, $18 billion? Chump change. Just get Pelosi and McConnell over there with their federal checkbooks.

That’s the carrot. There’s also a stick. There’s always a stick. On Monday, EU ministers will discuss, for the fourth time, the “systematic breakdown of the rule of law in Hungary.” In an article on its website, Human Rights Watch reported that “The EU Commission has also launched, for the first time, rights-based legal actions against the Hungarian government.”

It’d be a shame if anything happened to your nice, tidy EU membership, Hungary.

Geo-politics at its best.

Six hours ago, responding to announcements from Russia that it will stop shipping grain and fertilizer to states that sanction it, the US State Department tweeted that, “When the U.S. imposed sanctions on Russia to end the war as quickly as possible, we deliberately and carefully created exceptions for agricultural goods & fertilizer. We’re working every day to ensure sanctions aren’t preventing food or fertilizer from leaving Russia or anywhere.”

This morning, Newsmax reported via tweet that, “US Secretary of State Antony Blinken accused Russia of using food as a weapon of holding hostage supplies for, not just Ukrainians but for millions of people around the world.”

Millions of people like us?

But don’t worry! Look how well Biden handled the baby formula shortage. A fertilizer shortage should be no problem. Plus, earlier this month, Fox News reported that Biden officials said fertilizer shortages will give farmers a chance to “hasten” their “transition” from fertilizer to more “natural” resources. What kind of natural resources? U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Chief Samantha Power told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on This Week, “we’re working with countries to think about natural solutions like manure and compost and this may hasten transitions that would have been in the interest of farmers to make eventually anyway. So never let a crisis go to waste.”

Eureka! Transition to manure and compost! Nobody ever thought of that before! Our best and brightest, my friends. The proposal surprised me because I always thought the agricultural revolution started when we “hastened” our “transition” AWAY from manure and compost TO fertilizer. But what do I know? I’m just a lawyer, not a career politician.

You might recall that Biden told the press at a NATO summit in Belgium in March, “With regard to food shortage, yes we did talk about food shortages, and it’s gonna be real.” I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but Biden was right! The first real shortage was baby food.

Have a fabulous Friday! I’ll see you back here tomorrow.

World Health Assembly to vote on IHR amendments in unprecedented WHO power grab

5/18/2022

Next week, May 22-28, the World Health Assembly, governing body of the World Health Organization (WHO), will meet to vote on amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR).  The amendments can be seen here.  The IHR and the new amendments if passed, are legally binding on the United States and on all United Nations member states as a matter of international law.

According to Peter Breggin MD and Ginger Ross Breggin in their report on this issue, “These amendments will empower WHO’s Director-General to declare health emergencies or crises in any nation and to do so unilaterally and against the opposition of the target nation. The Director-General will be able to declare these health crises based merely on his personal opinion or consideration that there is a potential or possible threat to other nations.” The amendments eliminate the requirement to consult with the affected member state.

In addition, the WHO will be empowered to collaborate with other nations to deal with a declared health crisis even against the wishes of the affected nation.

America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) position statement on these amendments puts it this way, “The WHO would have the power to decide what constitutes a ‘pandemic’ and to decide quarantine measures on a global scale. WHO would control the development and safety of new treatments and would decide vaccine mandates for each country! . . . the proposed amendments empower the corrupt Director-General to unilaterally declare a health emergency in any nation even against the opinion of that nation for any illness that is widespread.”

Incredibly, the Biden administration proposed the amendments.  According to AFLDS’ position paper, “This amendment . . . will serve to give away our country’s healthcare system, national sovereignty, and personal freedoms to the WHO on a silver platter.  America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) strongly opposes the creation and implementation of any treaty or international instrument that governs world pandemic preparedness and response.”

Succinctly put, the upshot of these amendments is to surrender sovereignty to the WHO regarding very broadly defined public health crises subject to the whim of the WHO Director-General.  The current Director-General is not even a physician and is wholly unqualified.  Even if he were qualified there is no scenario in which this ends well.

According to Peter Hoekstra former Chairman and Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee and more recently US ambassador to the Netherlands during the Trump administration, “. . . this ‘next pandemic’ is neither far off nor a hypothetical ‘conspiracy theory’. According to multiple credible reports from the U.S. Department of State, to the executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, Peter Jennings, China has been preparing for bio-warfare using pathogens for more than six years.” It is no surprise that one of the amendments requires transferring genetic sequence data to the WHO.

In fact, the Trump administration pulled out of the WHO primarily because of its “mistakes” at the beginning of the COVID pandemic, including its deferential approach towards China.  According to Hoekstra, “Tedros, the first non-physician director-general of WHO, is an extremely controversial Marxist activist and politician from Ethiopia installed by the Chinese Communist Party.”

Placing our health policies in the hands of this man in particular who is beholden to the Chinese Communists is terrifying indeed.

We must do everything in our power to stop these amendments from being ratified.
