The Biden administration reclarified its support for ceding U.S. sovereignty to the World Health Organization (WHO) during a ‘pandemic.’
Biden Admin Wants to Give World Health Organization Full Control of US in Next Pandemic
The U.S. State Department Monday issued an opening statement from the WHO meeting that firmly established their commitment to a “Pandemic Accord.”
“The U.S. is committed to a #PandemicAccord which will vastly improve the global health architecture for preventing, preparing for, and responding to future pandemic emergencies. Read more from our opening statement at the World Health Organization meeting,” the U.S. Department of State tweeted.

Ambassador Pamela Hamamoto, U.S. Negotiator for the Pandemic Accord, issued this statement:
The United States is committed to the Pandemic Accord, to form a major component of the global health architecture for generations to come. Shared commitment, shared aspirations and shared responsibilities will vastly improve our system for preventing, preparing for, and responding to future pandemic emergencies.
We seek a Pandemic Accord that builds capacities; reduces pandemic threats posed by zoonotic diseases; enables rapid and more equitable responses; and establishes sustainable financing, governance, and accountability to ultimately break the cycle of panic and neglect.
There is a lot to build on in this draft related to these priorities. However, the draft is unbalanced toward response at the expense of prevention and preparedness. While we need to avoid duplicating substantive elements contained in the IHR, such as surveillance and alerts, we need to discuss how best to address pandemic prevention and preparedness here. These efforts should be mutually supportive and complementary.
We appreciate the focus on equity in Chapter III but also agree it must be better integrated across the draft. Our work must be inclusive and applicable for the improved health and wellbeing of all people. A commitment to “equity” must address inequities not only between countries, but also within them. Not just protecting populations from pandemics – but also from illness, death, and disrupted access to essential health care services during pandemics, including sexual and reproductive health services.
We must also recognize the roles of other international organizations and instruments. WTO is the most appropriate venue for discussions regarding legal obligations that fall under its own agreements, including discussions on the TRIPS Agreement.
We do not support “common but differentiated responsibilities and capabilities.” This concept is not appropriate in the context of pandemic PPR. We look forward to seeking common ground to best ensure universal application while also ensuring capacities are strengthened so that countries can meet their obligations.
The WHO Pandemic Accord is an egregious violation of the U.S. Constitution.
Any ‘treaty’ that violates the God-given rights of the American people is unenforceable.
“US citizens will live under laws made by the people they elect according to the US Constitution, and not according to global organizations,” Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) tweeted.

Yet, the Biden regime reportedly plans to move full stream ahead by signing the WHO Pandemic Treaty.

On Monday, The Heritage Foundation published a lengthy report on why the WHO’s treasonous treaty should be rejected.
The Heritage Foundation listed key takeaways in its report:
The World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) “zero draft” of a new agreement on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response, called WHO CA+, is significantly flawed. Even though the WHO failed miserably in preventing the spread of COVID-19, the WHO CA+ draft would dramatically expand WHO authority to declare a pandemic and, thereby, trigger provisions in the treaty that would re-allocate resources and encourage governments to waive intellectual property rights. If the U.S. joined the treaty, it would be required to increase its domestic funding by “allocating in its annual budgets not lower than 5% of its current health expenditure to pandemic prevention,” resulting in the annual expenditure of tens, if not hundreds, of billions of dollars on treaty compliance.
Despite its failure during COVID-19 and complicity in China’s cover-up, the World Health Organization (WHO) has drafted a new global pandemic treaty.
The draft treaty focuses on expanding WHO power, trampling intellectual property rights, and “equitably” redistributing knowledge, technology, and other resources.
The U.S. should not join this treaty as drafted and Congress must ensure that the Administration does not circumvent Senate approval on any treaty.
