The fact that the European Union has the Digital Services Act and the U.K. has proposed an Online Safety Bill are among the latest evidence that it was not mere coincidence that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security recently decided to create a Disinformation Governance Board.
This is all tied in together, along with the sneaky ploy by the Biden administration to create an all-powerful United Nations World Health Organization, which we were among the first to report back on April 24.
The idea, directed by the billionaire backers of the World Economic Forum, is to crack down on free speech at the very same time they are setting up a noose to hang around the necks of sovereign nations.
By amending an existing health treaty, called the International Health Regulations of 2005 (IHR), they are able to bypass U.S. Senate approval, which means no public debate and no media coverage of this sovereignty-killing power grab. It will all be done under the cloak of darkness in Geneva, Switzerland, when the WHO World Health Assembly meets May 22-28.
That’s why we see the timing of these anti-free speech measures unfolding now in all of the formerly free nations. They are designed to keep users of large social media platforms immersed in the government narrative about the forever virus (Covid), about whether elections in formerly free Western nations are actually still free and fair, about the holy and righteous nature of Ukraine’s war with Russia that everyone must support.
And don’t forget about that other tenet of the new one-world religion: climate change. The unpopular green new deal policies that Biden was unable to pass through Congress could be simply implemented under the newly upgraded IHR regulations.
And you wondered how the Great Reset was going to reach out and touch you, making you own nothing and be happy?
I think you have the answer now.
If the United Nations World Health Organization gets the desired new powers that the Biden administration has proposed to give it, look out. These 13 proposed amendments would create a beast with teeth at the United Nations.
Let’s be clear on what’s happening. They are building the infrastructure for global governance and strengthening the infrastructure that’s already in place.
So here’s one thing you can do. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is holding a brief, and I mean very brief, public comments period on the IHR amendments that would hand the WHO many new tools to build its one-world sociopathic agenda against free and sovereign people.
Send your comments to the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Global Affairs (OGA).
But you have to act now. The deadline is Friday, May 13, at 10 a.m. Eastern Time.
The Stakeholder Listening Session will help the HHS Office of Global Affairs prepare the U.S. delegation to the World Health Assembly by taking full advantage of the knowledge, ideas, feedback, and suggestions from all communities interested in and affected by agenda items to be discussed at the 75th World Health Assembly.
The U.S. Government will consider contributions received from the stakeholders as it develops the U.S. positions.
Written comments are welcome and encouraged.
Please send written comments to the email address: OGA.RSVP@hhs.gov
As dangerous as the WHO is, it still can’t impose policy on its 194 member nations without the consent of those nations. Their dictates can be checkmated by national sovereignty. Doing so can be dangerous, just ask the dead president of Tanzania. But it still can be done.
If Biden and his Health and Human Services chief, Xavier Baccera, get their way, the nations of the world will not have their sovereignty snatched away. No, they will hand it over.
The vote takes place May 22-28 in Geneva, Switzerland. All that’s required is a simply majority vote and, poof, there goes the sovereignty of 194 nations of the world over matters of “public health emergencies,” which could include a wide range of issues, not just viruses.
The changes to the 2005 treaty also include the addition of new “regional” health czars under the authority of the WHO. These czars will have their own bureaucratic cohorts to police the policies they impose on the nations. Aid can be withheld, punishing economic sanctions can be placed on any nation that deviates from the prescribed WHO remedy for whatever health emergency has been declared by the WHO director general. That would be Dr. Tedros, a known asset of the Chinese Communist Party.
The CDC has already declared that “firearm injuries are a serious public health problem.” So is falling in the bathtub, skydiving, riding a bicycle on a busy highway, and mountain climbing, but you don’t see the CDC getting involved in any of those dangerous activities. This is all political and has nothing to do with your health. The Republicans if they gain power should fire every executive level person and replace them with legitimate scientists who are not political. If that can’t be achieved then shut the whole agency down. If a political leader isn’t willing to consider these tough decisions then they should not get our support. That includes some of the biggest names in politics. Ask them these questions. If they don’t answer with at least legitimate, heartfelt concern, then dust your sandals and move on from them. I don’t care how big of name they have in politics.
The CDC has essentially become an arm of the WHO. Both of these agencies are the enemy of public health.
But before they can implement this ghastly plan they need to beef up the WHO’s enforcement powers.
If that is achieved in less than two weeks in Geneva, then the revised International Health Regulations will go into effect in November. If that happens, every nation that voted against the Biden amendments needs to pull out of the WHO.
Biden has already garnered the support of at least 40 nations, including the EU, to help ram these amendments through.
If these amendments get passed and the WHO member nations abide by them, there will be catastrophic consequences for the world. The lights will go out on individual freedom in the U.S. and every other formerly free country.
Every city in America potentially becomes Shanghai. Where lockdowns are not only always looming over people’s heads but when they come they come hard and strict. Your house or apartment becomes your own personal prison and you are 100 percent dependent on the government for your basic needs.
But before they can get to that point, they need to figure out a way to silence all dissent.
These are the sacred gospels of the New World Order about which nobody is allowed to dissent.
Remember, in the Great Reset (aka New World Order) you have no rights, only privileges.
Experts interviewed by The Defender addressed the “potential slippery slope of regulations” — in the U.S. and overseas — which, under the guise of “combating disinformation,” stifle the spread of information deemed inconvenient for governments and other powerful actors.
A May 12 article by the Defender addresses the international move toward silencing dissent in Europe and the U.S. And while it isn’t mentioned by the Defender, we know that Canada, Australia and New Zealand are also stifling dissent. This is an international revolutionary movement and the sooner we figure that out the better.

The EU’s new regulations, experts said, may have far-reaching impacts beyond Europe.
Michael Rectenwald, author of “Google Archipelago: The Digital Gulag and the Simulation of Freedom,” said he can foresee a future in which such regulations might affect all speech — not just speech on social media platforms.
Rectenwald told The Defender:
“[T]he EU’s DSA represents a major step toward one-world governance of social media and Internet search and one step closer to global government.
“Since the distinction between ‘on-line’ and ‘off-line’ activity will lose all meaning as the Internet includes the Internet of Things and Bodies, the DSA may become the law of the land.”
Is EU’s Digital Services Act on collision course with Musk’s Twitter plans?
In timing that coincided with Elon Musk’s intent to purchase Twitter, the EU announced April 23 the passage of the Digital Services Act (DSA).
The DSA seeks to tackle the spread of “misinformation and illegal content” and will apply “to all online intermediaries providing services in the EU,” in proportion to “the nature of the services concerned” and the number of users of each platform.
According to the DSA, “very large online platforms” (VLOPs) and “very large online search engines” (VLOSEs) — those with more than 45 million monthly active users in the EU — will be subject to the most stringent of the DSA’s requirements.
As Elon Musk prepares to finalize his purchase of Twitter, government officials in the U.S. and elsewhere are introducing new legislation aimed at combating “disinformation” online — particularly on social media platforms.https://t.co/GDbcZEWZTQ

Big Tech companies will be obliged to perform annual risk assessments to ascertain the extent to which their platforms “contribute to the spread of divisive material that can affect issues like health,” and independent audits to determine the steps the companies are taking to prevent their platforms from being “abused.”
These steps come as part of a broader crackdown on the “spread of disinformation” called for by the Act, requiring platforms to “flag hate speech, eliminate any kind of terrorist propaganda” and implement “frameworks to quickly take down illicit content.”
Regarding alleged “disinformation,” these platforms will be mandated to create a “crisis response mechanism” to combat the spread of such content, with the Act specifically citing the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the “manipulation” of online content that has ensued.
The DSA also will ban certain types of advertising on digital platforms, including targeted ads tailored to children or to people of specific ethnicities or sexual orientations.
