The US is circling the socialist drain

The US is circling the socialist drain. By Tucker Carlson. This is the most depressing episode of Tucker I think I’ve seen.

The Biden administration is giving the WHO power over every intimate aspect of your life:

Since the very first cases of the coronavirus were reported in Wuhan, the W.H.O. slavishly ran interference for the Chinese government and did it in the most cartoonish and obvious way. First, W.H.O. claimed there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission of the virus. Remember this? They cited Chinese officials who were obviously lying, and we now know they were lying. Then, when it became clear the virus probably came out of a Chinese government lab, W.H.O. sabotaged the investigation into the origin of the virus by appointing a gain-of-function researcher to lead the investigative team. … [The W.H.O. have] continued to praise China’s response to COVID as “transparent,” which is the one thing it’s not.

The World Health Organization gets to define what a pandemic is, when a pandemic is in progress and how long a pandemic lasts. Then you read the fine print and you realize the W.H.O will have total authority over emergency operations in the United States if there’s ever a “public health emergency.” …

As originally written, [the W.H.O.] couldn’t do anything without the permission of their member countries’ governments. But thanks to the change that the Biden administration pushed, effectively there is no limit at all on W.H.O’s power …

Under this treaty, W.H.O. members must enforce orders from the W.H.O. They have to act as the heavies for the W.H.O. and if they don’t, they’ll be sanctioned. The White House is going to be the muscle for the director of the World Health Organization. …

So, who is the director of the World Health Organization? Well, that would be a former member of Ethiopia’s Marxist-Leninist Party called Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. He once led the Ministry of Health in Ethiopia. He’s not a physician, but as the head of the Ministry of Health in Ethiopia for political reasons, he covered up three cholera outbreaks, the opposite of what he’s supposed to do. He wrote off cholera as simply acute watery diarrhea. He’s not a doctor, so maybe he didn’t know, but he did know. He did it for political reasons. Those outbreaks are taking place among disfavored groups. …

There’s a guy with a long and documented history of subverting public health, who is clearly a liar, who is acting as an agent for the Chinese government, and you have to ask yourself, “Did I vote for that guy? Is he one of my elected representatives in this democracy? How did he get power over where I can travel and when?” …

The treaty demands, “national and global coordinated actions to address the misinformation, disinformation and stigmatization that undermine public health.” Oh, here we go, right to censorship. …

Under this treaty, the World Health Organization will get to establish vaccine passports and regulate travel. …

The World Health Organization would also assume total control over vaccine manufacturing and distribution. … No more innovation, centralized control. …

According to the treaty, those vaccines and essential medicines … will be distributed not on the basis of need, but on the basis of equity. … Not the sickest, not the people who need the medicine most, but the most vulnerable in a larger sense. In other words, favored groups get medicine first.

There is no graver violation of medical ethics than this. Every physician, practicing in the United States, promises not to do what you just heard, and it would become mandatory under this treaty. And by the way, the language you just heard, that is exactly the justification that officials in several states threw out when they were caught passing out vaccines based on race. This is a power grab. … This is lunacy. And people who know that it’s happening are upset. …

125,000 people in the U.K. have just called for a referendum on this treaty. They signed a petition. …

There is at least one planned legal challenge to this and it comes from Stephen Miller’s group, America First Legal. Here’s what’s at stake, not just your health, but the way that you live and your relationship to the government. Representative government requires your consent. You alone have the right to choose your representatives, your style of government, the laws under which you live. That is called democracy, and this eliminates it.

The left is making another bid for world government by an unelected bureaucracy.
