The WHO: A Bloated, Corrupt, Unaccountable, Thug-Hugging Bureaucracy

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: Given the many recent controversies regarding the World Health Organization and its head, Dr. (of Philosophy, believe it or not) Teros Ghebreyesus, this contribution from a friend in the medical field who prefers to remain anonymous is very timely, and extremely revelatory. Hope you enjoy it.]

WHO’s on first?

Costello: All I’m trying to find out is the fellow’s name on first base.
Abbott: Who.
Costello: The guy that gets the money.
Abbott: That’s it.
Costello: Who gets the money on first base?
Abbott: He does, every dollar!

World Health Organization. Who would think there could be anything but honor and irrefutable truth coming from an organization with such a noble-sounding organization?

If you’ve been watching most news reports during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s been quoted and referenced as an unassailable body with nothing but the best experts and best intentions.
The more you know…

The World Health Organization was set up as a coordinating authority on international health within the United Nations. One can argue about the continued value and credibility of the UN, and many of those arguments would seem to apply to its offshoot, WHO.

On the one hand, having an organization that coordinates advances in medicine and technology from one country for the rest of the globe, or comes together to help “achieve better health for everyone, everywhere” seems like a great idea. From WHO’s website itself, “We help mothers and children survive and thrive so they can look forward to a healthy old age. We ensure the safety of the air people breathe, the food they eat, the water they drink – and the medicines and vaccines they need.”

Who could argue with such a noble charter? The answer is that not only could we, but we should.

WHO’s annual budget is somewhere around 4 billion dollars. The United States is the largest contributor to this organization, to the tune of more than half a billion per year, between “assessments” and “voluntary contributions.”

As I started to dig in on why giving WHO any credit whatsoever and seemingly holding them above skepticism during this disastrous global crisis didn’t feel right to me, I started with WHO’s very own website. I was trying to find what the original constitution for WHO was when it was first chartered in 1948 and compare it to the constitution for WHO today. It wasn’t easy to find. The version available on the WHO website calls out that this version is inclusive of all amendments made since 1948, but there’s not really a way to see what has changed, like a redline version. I did find this evaluation of the preamble to the constitution.

If you read the WHO website carefully, you will see phrases and statements that are almost exact versions of phrases and statements you have heard for years from US politicians and bureaucrats. If you look to Annex VII of the WHO constitution, you will see that Experts and officers serving on behalf of the WHO shall have privileges and immunities granted to them by all member states: immunity from personal arrest or seizure of personal baggage, b) immunity of legal process of every kind, even if they are no longer serving on committees of or employed by the organization, c) they are not bound by any local restrictions regarding currency or baggage, d) they have inviolability for all papers and documents – their documents cannot be seized or destroyed, nor can they be reviewed. They are granted complete secrecy, e) they have the right to use codes and to receive papers or correspondence by courier or in sealed bags.

Wow! An officer or member of a WHO committee could sure do a lot of unsavory business under the guise of their WHO status, couldn’t they? And, if what they are doing is to advance the causes of public health across borders for all citizens, then why in the world would they need to be so carefully protected by whatever it might be they are carrying on their person?

Maybe that’s all standard bureaucratic gobbledygook, you might say. Nothing to see here, don’t be an alarmist.

What if I told you that the current Director General of the WHO, Teros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, is the first person to hold that office who is not actually a medical doctor?

Dr. Tedros (he has a PhD in Philosophy) is a well-known “expert” in the field of immunology and infectious disease, and the first African to hold the post. Quoted directly from the WHO website: “Immediately after taking office on 1 July 2017, Dr Tedros outlined five key priorities for the Organization: universal health coverage; health emergencies; women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health; health impacts of climate and environmental change; and a transformed WHO.” Also, “All roads lead to universal health coverage for Dr Tedros.” Hmmm…..

The Daily Caller has had a series of editorials on Dr Tedros and WHO in recent days. Dr Tedros has, at best, some pretty ominous connections to China in light of China’s stonewalling and lying about the source of the virus and its spread, which if they’d cooperated earlier would have likely mitigated this spread and its devastating impact on the world markets. China backed Tedros in the election which granted him a five year term as Director General, which began in 2017.

As Ethiopia’s Minister of Health, it is alleged that Dr. Tedros participated in the coverup of at least three cholera epidemics. He has close ties to other human rights violators, such as Robert Mugabe (also an ally of China) and has consistently parroted China’s talking points during the COVID-19 outbreak, even when they have been proven demonstrably false.

OK, so this Tedros seems like he might be a bit unsavory. Maybe he’s an outlier. Who preceded him?

Why, that would be Dr. Margaret Chan. Dr Chan, prior to her election to Director General of WHO, served as Director of Health in Hong Kong. In that role, she achieved notoriety during the 1997 avian influenza (bird flu) outbreak and the 2003 SARA outbreaks.

During the bird flu outbreak, she thought it would reassure people to say things like “I eat chicken every day, don’t panic.” During SARS, the structure of the Hong Kong health care system under her direction was widely criticized for not sharing data between hospitals and public health officials. So why not then get yourself elected not once, not twice as Director General of WHO?

During her term as Director General, she distinguished herself by claiming that North Korea’s health system was great and that there were no signs of obesity in the country, unlike other parts of Asia where this was becoming a growing concern. (Perhaps because, oh I don’t know, maybe the people there were being starved to death by a despotic dictator?) She was also accused of ignoring a polio comeback in Syria in deference to its delightful President Bashar al-Assad, and under her direction, WHO also took heat for its slow response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

Would you be interested to know that Chan is now a member of the Task Force on Fiscal Policy for Health, a group convened by none other than Michael Bloomberg and Lawrence Summers (remember him?)? Mr. Summers was Bill Clinton’s Treasury Secretary and former Director of the National Economic Council under President Obama. In between then, he was president of Harvard University, where he basically said that the reason why women weren’t equally represented in the science and engineering workforce was because they just weren’t as good at advanced math as men.

In its lifespan, the World Health Organization, despite the US being its single largest contributor, has never once elected an American as its Director General. Despite the excellent work the organization has done with vaccine research and other, targeted projects it has taken on in Africa, it’s hard to point to a single game-changing tactic that has impacted global health for the better.

WHO is an unaccountable, bloated, corrupt bureaucracy that has protected the most egregious human rights violators while professing moral superiority over every other individual country’s public health efforts, particularly the United States. It’s time we stopped supporting them, stopped deferring to them, and stopped listening to them.

 

That is all.

    WHO: they’re China Dolls. (That is, puppets.) Like BloJoe the Mindless One and Tiny Mike the China Asset.

    Early in this event, I stated that if the Chinese lose 10% of their workforce (not due to death, but to quarantine etc) and we lose 10%, they win. And that’s what WHO and the media and China itself wish to happen. This is a war, and some are deliberately aiding and abetting the Chinese.

    It was alarming that Fauci came to defend the corrupt “Dr.” in the presser yesterday. As I said recently: he’s Rod Rosenstein in all of this. His buddy is head of the WHO, which is an acronym that reminds me of a Bond movie villain. Except in reality, from what the author reveals, they have the potential, if not the actual nature, to be a Bond-type villain. Not fictional villainy.

    Time to re-open parts of the US, and not let infected people from NY and other places move there to spread the misery. You know that’s what they’ll do, and it will be intentional, just as the Left has promised to do in other places. And WHO should be defunded at the earliest possible opportunity, and replaced with actual scientists without an agenda.

      My point about intentional sabotage? Already happening:

      “A Pennsylvania woman ruined an estimated $35,000 worth of goods by intentionally coughing all over them while the coronavirus plagues nations worldwide, a grocery store alleged on Facebook.
      The woman visited a Hanover Township location of the small grocery chain Gerrity’s Supermarket before 2:20 p.m. Wednesday and coughed on fresh produce, a small section of the bakery, meat case and grocery items, the store’s co-owner Joe Fasula wrote.”

      https://nypost.com/2020/03/25/woman-coughs-on-35k-of-goods-at-pennsylvania-grocery-store-in-very-twisted-prank/

      This is an act of terrorism, something the Attorney General of the United States has promise will be prosecuted as terrorism. Not a “prank.”

    On January 14th the WHO proclaimed that China discovered COVID-19 is not human-to-human transferable. Not contrived at all I’m sure.

      They appeared to be buying time in order to transfer the disease as far and wide as possible.

    Some good news that the WHO will undoubtedly disapprove of, just like the Nevada Governor and Chloroquine:
    “The Food and Drug Administration has announced that physicians treating critically ill coronavirus patients now can use a centuries-old practice that injects sick people with the blood plasma of survivors of infectious diseases.”

    https://thefederalistpapers.org/us/fda-approves-centuries-old-blood-treatment-critical-coronavirus-patients

    That was the good news. Now for the saboteurs:

    “New York City Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot posted a tweet on February 9 urging citizens to flock to Chinatown in large numbers to celebrate the lunar new year while suggesting that advice to avoid crowds was “misinformation.”’

    “Today our city is celebrating the #LunarNewYear parade in Chinatown, a beautiful cultural tradition with a rich history in our city. I want to remind everyone to enjoy the parade and not change any plans due to misinformation spreading about #coronavirus,” she wrote.

    “On the same day, Mark D. Levine, Chair of New York City Council health committee, lauded how “huge crowds gathering in NYC’s Chinatown” was a “powerful show of defiance of #coronavirus scare,” tweeting four images of large groups of people gathered to celebrate the occasion.

    “Those tweets are receiving a fresh backlash of criticism given what has unfolded since. Many of the individuals who showed up for the celebrations were Chinese and could have visited China in the weeks before.
    Confirmed cases of coronavirus across New York state surged 38 per cent overnight to 20,875 total cases. There have been 157 deaths.

    “New York is the hardest hit state in the country and New York City accounts for 12,305 confirmed infections.
    The advice given by the officials was in line with World Health Organization rhetoric at the time, which discouraged the “stigmatization” of Chinese people.”‘

    WHP and other health authorities deliberately (or ignorantly) promoted practices which we now know are dangerous.

    WHO, according to the guest author, cannot be investigated, prosecuted nor required to provide information. Wow. Sounds like the DNC server, HRC’s emails and Burisma!

    There should be an immediate requirement of the UN to rewrite those rules, or face defunding; we should likewise refuse entry to our shores anyone affiliated with WHO until this is done.

    The author also states that “Dr.” Tedros is not an actual doctor, as in M.D., but has a PhD in what? Philosophy?

    No, but he’s a real doctor! He once stayed in a Holiday Inn Express!

    Before I leave for the day, I want to leave you with some wisdom:

    Ephesians 6:11-12
    “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

    Genesis 50:20
    “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”

    Proverbs 3:7-8
    “Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord and shun evil.
    This will bring health to your body
    and nourishment to your bones.”

    Psalm 97:10
    “Let those who love the Lord hate evil,
    for he guards the lives of his faithful ones
    and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”

    James 1:21
    “Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”

    2 Timothy 4:18
    “The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

    Be well and in prayer.

    WHO, Wow…

    I could go into a lengthy preamble about how George Washington warned us against foreign entanglements… I’ll save that for later commentary.

    After the China Virus has run its course and we develop protections from future “China” Viruses and, after we recover from the economic “cure” (AKA the multi-Trillion Dollar “stimulus”) and after President Trump massively wins re-election (against Cuomo?), his and our National Priorities MUST be:

    Clear the US State Department of ALL the swamp dwelling anti-American bat rastards that still infest it.

    Get us out of every aspect of the UN – like in college, let the US be a auditor, not a funder. I would prefer the expulsion of the actual UN Headquarters from NYC – move it Zimbabwe, or Haiti (along with all the bogus political “charity foundations”).

    Balance our federal budget by the end of your second term – but first force congress to actually pass our first real budget in ten years i.e., 2021 for FY 2022.

    Drain the Swamp, If Barr et al hasn’t indicted, and begun prosecutions of ALL of the coup players by January 20, 2021, then please, Please, PLEASE FIRE him and get a real AG. (Giuliani, Bondi, Levin, Powell, DiGenova) and get one of the remainder to lead and clean up the FBI and the other corrupted alphabet agencies.

    Quit ALL foreign aid and restart/reset it to the countries who actually support us – no phony or non-reciprocating countries/allies. Get out of NATO. Only make military alliances that are beneficial to US interests. I don’t care about places like Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Serbia, Syria, Vietnam or even Taiwan, or South Korea. It is not our business to support or “save” anyone – particularly when there is no DIRECT BENEFIT to the US.

    Move all legal pharmaceutical drug production, and as much other production as possible from CHINA and all other enemy states back to America. Clean up our own Mini WHO – the CDC. More medicine – less politics…

    Disengage the US from the World Oil/Energy market. Let the US produce what the US needs and let the prices be stabilized by what the US market demands. This will work because we have now just become a net exporter and therefore the prices would settle to about what they were (and therefore be profitable for fracking) before the recent Saudi – Russia price war. Let the rest of the world fight over the Middle East, Russia, and OPEC pricing.

    Finish the Wall; defend the boarder with force if and when necessary.

    Make new immigration law similar to the law we passed restricting immigration to what was passed a hundred years ago. Shut down the refugee invasion. Vetted refugees should only come from Mexico and Canada – not Central or South America, Africa, or Asia!

    Restructure to severely limit the broad scope of the FED’s power and influence and make it more accountable to the people, and congress, by creating a removal process for its chairman and its major officers. There is no reason why a (largely) private group of appointed bankers should have such unfettered control of our monetary system/policy. No more (soon to cause) inflation driving Quantitative Easing (QE), e. g., the printing of Monopoly Money.

    Investigate who owns (6 people/groups) and drives the MSM under RICO laws. Reform or defund PBS and NPR.

    Get the libel laws changed to allow lawsuits to be brought forth by “Public Figures”, including politicians, against individuals and organizations including all social media platforms for censorship.

    This list is just a rough start of needed reforms off the top of my head, and there is much more to accomplish.

    Mr. President, you have done so much good for America during your first term. Your biggest success has been the exposing of much of the fraud in so many aspects of the American Government and its MSM, and the absolute corruption of so many global institutions to which we are bound.

    With the help of a strong and supportive GOP Congress, you must do your best to remove this pervasive Swamp fraud that you so artfully exposed. When that happens, America will begin to actually heal. If you could accomplish much of what I listed, you will go down as the greatest president in history.

    There might even be a patriotic song call “Imagine” written in your honor. Imagine a President who actually keeps promises and fixes things… It’s easy when it happens…

    My GOD Bless, Keep, and Protect you and America.

    Because this hack is not a trained physician, he also (perhaps intentionally, but probably not) grossly misstated the case fatality rate for the virus as 10-20 times greater than influenza, when in fact it is quite comparable to influenza.

    The only way to get rid of these entities–like any bureaucracy–is to defund it. I never thought there was any chance of this, but Trump in his second term just may do it.
