GOP Rep. Blasts Pandemic Treaty on House Floor, Rejects WHO Authority Over United States

The World Health Organization has been urgently pushing a new Pandemic Treaty, officially known as the “Zero draft report of the Working Group on Strengthening WHO Preparedness and Response to Health Emergencies to the Seventy-fifth World Health Assembly.”

A Republican Congressman, Dr. Rich McCormick from Georgia, slammed the need for such a pandemic treaty and specifically referenced the World Health Organization in a much-needed speech on the House floor.

“Much like other international organizations, the World Trade Organization, the United Nations, World Health Organization, is vying to gain more authority through pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response accord,” Rep. McCormick said.

“In my opinion, this worries me greatly,” he remarked. “Let me be clear. The United States should never, ever allow international organizations, specifically the World Health Organization to impede our sovereignty, which I know you just reaffirmed.”

“With that said, I think that when you designed the World Health Organization, it was intended to be a data gatherer, an observer and informant to nations around the world, with a goal of providing interchange of information from different healthcare organizations for emergencies<‘ he continued.

“However, the Biden administration must ensure the WHO Authority is limited to setting public health standard and providing a forum for countries to exchange information, but not to be given greater authority to infringe on our nation’s sovereignty,” he added.

“Now, I know we had this debate on world tribunals and other areas where we have world organizations that want to overreach,” he said.

“I think it’s really important when we talk about US national interests advanced to these upcoming negotiations in the Pandemic Prevention Preparedness and Response Accord, which I believe both of you are involved in,” he said to the witnesses on the panel.

Those witnesses were: Loyce Pace, Assistant Secretary for Global Affairs at the  Department of Health and Human Services; John Nkengasong, Senior Bureau Official for Global Health Security and Diplomacy at the U.S. Department of State; and Atul Gawande, Assistant Administrator for Global Health at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

All the witnesses subsequently avowed to provide transparency and compliance to the U.S. Constitution in regards to the Pandemic Treaty.

Notably, the witnesses also agreed that China refused to be transparent with the world during the early days of the Covid pandemic.

Rep. James Comer (R-KY), Chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, was able to get the concession from the officials during the hearing.

The World Health Organization’s Pandemic Treaty has been a source of controversy and confusion from its very inception.

The Brownstone Institute reported that “The World Health Organisation intends to make lockdowns and other non-pharmaceutical interventions intended to curb viral spread part of official pandemic guidance.”

“The revelation comes in a report scheduled to go to the WHO’s World Health Assembly later this month,” the Brownstone Institute noted. “This is not part of new pandemic treaty and does not require the endorsement of member states. The report says the implementation is already underway.”

“Many have raised the alarm about a new WHO pandemic treaty,” the researchers add. “However, as I’ve noted previously (and as Michael Senger notes here), there isn’t a new pandemic treaty on the table. Rather, there are amendments to the existing treaty, the International Health Regulations 2005, plus other recommendations (131 in all) put forward in a report from the Working Group on Strengthening WHO Preparedness and Response to Health Emergencies.”

The United States’ Covid policy responses that include quarantining, masks, and social distancing, as well as the ‘lockdowns,’ have failed to produce statistically significant results fighting Covid, but caused serious damage to the economy and violated Americans’ rights.

An exhaustive Johns Hopkins University comparative analysis published in January found that strict lockdowns failed to significantly reduce Covid-related deaths.

“Lockdowns in the U.S. and Europe had little or no impact in reducing deaths from COVID-19, according to a new analysis by researchers at Johns Hopkins University,” the Washington Times reported.  “The lockdowns during the early phase of the pandemic in 2020 reduced COVID-19 mortality by about 0.2%, said the broad review of multiple scientific studies.”

“We find no evidence that lockdowns, school closures, border closures, and limiting gatherings have had a noticeable effect on COVID-19 mortality,” the researchers wrote.

“Overall, we conclude that lockdowns are not an effective way of reducing mortality rates during a pandemic, at least not during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the authors conclude. “Our results are in line with the World Health Organization Writing Group (2006), who state, ‘Reports from the 1918 influenza pandemic indicate that social-distancing measures did not stop or appear to dramatically reduce transmission’.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Biden administration’s top Covid official, recently testified before Congress and denied that the United States had implemented “lockdowns.”

“There were restrictions, obviously, but there were not lockdowns,” Fauci added. “China is now going into a real lockdown. So I would disagree.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci is set to testify before the Congress on January 8 and 9, 2024.
