WHO: Pandemic Will Last 4-5 Years or Maybe Forever

Remember when the point of the lockdowns was to prevent hospitals from becoming overrun by an initial spike of patients before they had time to prepare? That isn’t the issue anymore. Now the issue is, how to get authoritarians to give up power, once they have gotten their claws on it? Already the World Health Organization, allied with the Chinese Communist Party and championed by the Democrat Party, says it will be years before it is safe for authorities to lift their shoe from our faces.

CNBC quotes WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan:

“I would say in a four to five-year timeframe, we could be looking at controlling this.”

A vaccine could end it, but there may never be a vaccine. Also, there are concerns about the hypothetical vaccine’s “equitable distribution.” How could egalitarians allow anyone (other than themselves) to have a vaccine until everyone on the planet can have it?

Considering the reception hydroxychloroquine has received, an effective vaccine may not be welcome even if scientists come up with one.

Why 4-5 years and not some other number? A frog needs to be boiled gradually, lest it jump out of the pot. If authorities had admitted at the beginning of the lockdowns that the Flatten the Curve strategy means this could go on indefinitely, people might have rebelled. They pick arbitrary time periods they think people will accept, then move the goalposts before we get there.

Swaminathan stresses successful confinement measures as a factor determining how long the pandemic lasts. This means that the way to relieve the repression is to increase the repression. Tyranny is cleverer now than it was in Stalin’s time.

At a separate media briefing, Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s emergencies program, said at the organization’s Geneva headquarters on Wednesday that the coronavirus “may never go away.”

The COVID-19 crisis will end when it becomes clear that people won’t put up with it any longer. No sooner.

The WHO and YouTube Censorship of COVID-19 Lockdown Dissent

After Google/YouTube censored the original video of frontline doctors Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi expressing skepticism that the authoritarian coronavirus lockdown is warranted, I replaced it with a version posted by Blue Collar Logic. Soon this version was also censored, so I went with BitChute.

Jason Siler of Blue Collar Logic tries to figure out why the video was banned, given that it did not violate any of YouTube’s community guidelines:

Siler names three groups that may have pressured YouTube to censor videos that question a hardline authoritarian stance on the lockdown: the CDC, the DNC, and the WHO. This is as good as confirmed regarding the WHO; YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has openly stated that disagreeing with the World Health Organization can get a video removed:

“Anything that would go against World Health Organization recommendations would be a violation of our policy and so remove is another really important part of our policy.”

It is alarming enough that YouTube censors valid medical information at the behest of bureaucrats. Still more alarming is the nature of the bureaucrats. During the pandemic, the WHO has served as a mouthpiece for the Chinese Communist Party. It parroted the early ChiCom line that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission. Its Marxist Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus unconscionably denounced travel restrictions from China because “stigma.”

Earlier travel restrictions might have reduced the Wuhan coronavirus death toll by 95%. Unfortunately, the WHO is extremely influential and was able to delay them.

The Vigilant Citizen connects a few dots:

Every single time a treatment shows promise, the WHO and the media system that caters to it are quick to warn against them and even label it as dangerous.

Why? Because the WHO is banking on a single, universal solution: A Vaccine. …

And they say that a vaccine could take months or years to be available. So what happens until they decide that a vaccine is ready? A police state where high tech surveillance, bio-paranoia, and the forced quarantine of selected people at a moment’s notice. Big Brother is now a “savior” as the constant tracking of individuals and the people they come in contact with is portrayed as the only solution to save lives.

The WHO has praised China’s handling of the virus, which has entailed covering it up until it could spread (while containing its spread within China) and welding citizens into their apartments.

Maybe it is wrong to accuse this United Nations agency of being a tool of the ChiComs; maybe the ChiComs are a tool of the UN, establishing a template:

Through its Orwellian social credit system, its horrific re-education camps, its brutal suppression of dissenting voices, and its constant surveillance of its population, China has been a laboratory for a high-tech new world order.

Oligarchical collectivism imposed by a single global government is the hellish dream at the core of the United Nations. Maybe businesses are dying from the lockdown as much to advance this malevolent cause as to prevent the spread of disease.

YouTube May Censor Anything Not in Compliance With Mendacious WHO

One thing we have learned from the Wuhan coronavirus crisis is that the UN’s World Health Organization is a tool of China’s communist government. As noted earlier,

The WHO was more interested in using the racism club to bully people into not blaming China than it was in containing the virus. The agency actually praised the communist regime’s unconscionable handling of the virus, which entailed using police state tactics to terrorize doctors who raised the alarm. Both the ChiComs and the WHO spread the lie that the disease could not be transmitted from person to person.

That lie has cost any number of lives.

Naturally, moonbats revere the WHO more than ever. Nancy Pelosi was enraged when Trump suspended its funding. Google subsidiary YouTube proclaims that information contradicting the mendacious WHO may be censored. Big League Politics quotes YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki:

“Anything that would go against World Health Organization recommendations would be a violation of our policy and so remove is another really important part of our policy.”

Presumably, Google has cleared this policy with the Chinese Communist Party.

Nancy Pelosi Vows to Reverse Suspension of US Money to WHO

Confirming yet again that the Democrat Party is not on America’s side, Nancy Pelosi set aside her designer ice cream long enough to rage over Trump sensibly suspending funding to the malign World Health Organization:

“This decision is dangerous, illegal and will be swiftly challenged,” Pelosi said. …

Pelosi’s comments come after the president announced Tuesday that the United States would immediately halt funding for the health organization, saying it had put “political correctness over lifesaving measures,” noting that the U.S. would undertake a 60-to-90 day investigation into why the “China-centric” WHO had caused “so much death” by “severely mismanaging and covering up” the coronavirus spread.

He who pays the piper calls the tune. Except in this case:

The United States is the WHO’s largest single donor, and the State Department had previously planned to provide the agency $893 million in the current two-year funding period. Trump said the United States contributes roughly $400 million to $500 million per year to WHO, while China offers only about $40 million.

The WHO was more interested in using the racism club to bully people into not blaming China than it was in containing the virus. The agency actually praised the communist regime’s unconscionable handling of the virus, which entailed using police state tactics to terrorize doctors who raised the alarm. Both the ChiComs and the WHO spread the lie that the disease could not be transmitted from person to person.

A study by the University of Southampton found that honesty instead of lies might have reduced COVID-19 cases by 95% worldwide.

The Director-General of the WHO is a Marxist bureaucrat from Ethiopia named Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. He was apparently installed in his position by the Chinese government to do its bidding.

Why should Americans pay for a Chinese propaganda platform when we have our own urgent needs? Maybe because Pelosi is heavily invested in China.

If you need any more reasons not to want a penny more of your money going to the WHO, consider this:

The World Health Organization in Europe is asking government officials to restrict access to alcohol as citizens continue widespread lockdowns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Even Stalin let his slaves drink vodka. The technocrats of the WHO make the communist dictator look like a libertarian.

Imagine enduring the lockdown without alcohol. For that matter, imagine living in a world where Nancy Pelosi is next in line to the presidency after Pence without alcohol.

The WHO and the Chinese Communist Party: Joined at the Hip

If only Trump would put out half as much misinformation about the Wuhan coronavirus as the World Health Organization has done; it would make impeachment a cinch for Nancy Pelosi et al. But the WHO has a good reason. It is defending its ally, the Chinese Communist Party.

Liz Wheeler is getting fed up:

The Director-General of the World Health Organization is not a medical doctor, but a bureaucrat from backward Ethiopia. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has two qualifications for the position: (1) like Robert Mugabe, the infamous socialist dictator who oversaw the transformation of the Breadbasket of Africa into the starving ruin that is Zimbabwe, Ghebreyesus is a tool of the ChiComs; and (2) he has experience covering up pandemics, having done the same with a cholera pandemic in Ethiopia.

Details from India’s World Is One News:

It’s hardly surprising that Ghebreyesus hits it off with the ChiComs, considering this:

The Director-General of the World Health Organization is a former member of a violent revolutionary communist party in Ethiopia that denied emergency medical treatment to an ethnic group and he is accused of personally overseeing the extradition of dissidents who were later imprisoned and tortured.

We will not have gone through the pandemic for nothing if it at least wakes a few people up to how pernicious the WHO and its parent the United Nations have become.

WHO Coronavirus Moonbattery

CNN propagandists aren’t the only moonbats to respond absurdly to the coronavirus. The World Health Organization reminds us that stigma and discrimination are a larger concern than deadly diseases.

Via Summit News:

Despite declaring a global health emergency, the World Health Organization has ordered countries not to engage in “stigma” or “discrimination” in their handling of the coronavirus outbreak.

The WHO is cracking down on travel and trade restrictions intended to prevent the virus from spreading.

“Under Article 43 of the IHR, States Parties implementing additional health measures that significantly interfere with international traffic (refusal of entry or departure of international travellers, baggage, cargo, containers, conveyances, goods, and the like, or their delay, for more than 24 hours) are obliged to send to WHO the public health rationale and justification within 48 hours of their implementation. WHO will review the justification and may request countries to reconsider their measures,” said the statement.

The potential for a large number of deaths appears to be no biggie for imperious WHO bureauweenies, who are probably excited about the possible reduction in harmless carbon emissions.

More WHO moonbattery:

The World Health Organisation asked Thursday that China be shown “gratitude and respect” for its handling of the deadly novel coronavirus, despite the … widespread belief among health experts and government officials that the Communist state has been covering up the true scale of the outbreak to save face.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus used to be Minister of Health for Ethiopia, a country not conspicuous for effective healthcare. He praises the Chinese regime for its commitment to “transparency,” despite its notable lowballing of the number of people affected.

Exclaims Ghebreyesus,

“The level of commitment in China is incredible; I will praise China again and again…”

Authoritarian dictatorships deserve our support, so long as they rule from the left — as the majority of them do.

The WHO is a subsidiary of the United Nations. This explains its pernicious devotion to leftism.

Will UN Use Military Force to Impose Climate Crapola?

It sounds like the plot to a novel, but it makes perfect sense if you take liberal rhetoric at face value. According to their fanciful ideology, sustaining a modern standard of living will make it a few degrees warmer outside. Although the climate has always fluctuated, leftists hold that this would be a catastrophe unprecedented in human history. Imagine for a moment that you were crazy enough to believe this silly crap, yet instead of being incarcerated in a mental institution, you were among the useless bureauweenies running the United Nations. Would you not call for countries that refuse to stop generating energy by economically viable means to be brought into line by force? Otherwise, the planet will be doomed!

Breitbart refers us to prominent international relations professor Ole Wæver of the University of Copenhagen:

In an interview with ABC News in Australia, Professor Wæver cautions that what he sees as “climate inaction” might draw the U.N. into considering other means to ensure its goals are met, even if that leads to global armed conflict.

World War III would be just what the environment needs. Think how many carbon-emitting humans could be killed.

“The United Nations Security Council could, in principle, tomorrow decide that climate change is a threat to international peace and security,” [Wæver] says.

When moonbats frame the global warming hoax in terms of security, that means they are serious about using it to justify coercion.

“If there was something that was decided internationally by some more centralised procedure and every country was told ‘this is your emission target, it’s not negotiable, we can actually take military measures if you don’t fulfil it’, then you would basically have to get that down the throat of your population, whether they like it or not,” he says.

Wæver compares this to the European Union imposing debt solutions on Greece. The difference is, the big carbon emitters are large countries armed with nuclear weapons, namely (in descending order) China, the USA, India, and Russia.

The only one of these top four countries that has produced a smaller share since the Kyoto Protocol is the USA. Yet the UN may give some countries a pass and only pick on others, since this isn’t actually about either CO2 or the climate anyway.

Once again, we see that the global warming hoax is popular with progressives because it can be exploited to advance their agenda. Preeminent on that agenda is globalization — the concentration of total world power in the hands of an oligarchy.

Ilhan Omar: Cede Border Control to United Nations

Even after the spectacle she has made of her hatred of America while serving on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, there may have been some who doubted that congresscritter Ilhan Omar (D-Somalia) is an enemy of the United States. Any such doubts have now been laid to rest. Even as the USA is subjected to an ongoing invasion that is demographically deforming the country, Omar demands that we turn over control of our own border to the largely malevolent United Nations.

Screeches Omar:

“[W]e have to bring in the United Nations high commissioner on refugees, an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely.”

“Refugees” is what foreign invaders are called in the context of asymmetrical warfare.

The demand bears hallmarks of how Europe was deluged with migrants after governments were forced to accept millions of “refugees” after lobbying from international groups and NGOs.

Omar has taken her habit of homewrecking nationwide.

Paul Joseph Watson states the obvious:

Any such intervention by the UN would represent a direct violation of U.S. sovereignty, fundamentally weakening America’s national security.

Weakening national security is Omar’s forte. These days, lots of Democrats are radical enough to propose abolishing ICE (shockingly including even leading presidential candidates), but Omar has called for defunding the entire Department of Homeland Security.

United Nations Gets Serious About Taking Our Food

Nature reports that the United Nations is coming for our food on behalf of the climate:

Efforts to curb greenhouse gas-emissions and the impacts of global warming will fall significantly short without drastic changes in global land use, agriculture and human diets, leading researchers warn in a high-level report commissioned by the United Nations.

Too bad actual science is not involved. They might proceed more methodically, first proving that there is any warming beyond normal fluctuation, then proving that more bad than good will come of this, then proving that human greenhouse gas emissions are causing it, then proving that dictating what we can eat would have any perceptible impact on the weather. But none of this is necessary, because this is a power grab, not science.

On 8 August, the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] released a summary of the report, which is designed to inform upcoming climate negotiations amidst the worsening global climate crisis. More than 100 experts compiled the report in recent months, around half of whom hail from developing countries.

It is not a coincidence that so many of these “experts” come from developing (aka sh**hole) countries, despite such countries being a poor place to look for scientific expertise. The redistribution of wealth from nations that create it to nations that do not is a major component of global warming ideology.

Jacobins have their marching orders:

“It’s really exciting that the IPCC is getting such a strong message across,” says Ruth Richardson, the Toronto, Canada-based executive director at the Global Alliance for the Future of Food, a strategic coalitions of philanthropic foundations. “We need a radical transformation, not incremental shifts, towards a global land use and food system that serves our climate needs.”

To get an idea of what people like this mean by “a radical transformation,” refer to Mao’s Great Leap Forward, the objectives of which were relatively modest. That killed 45 million people in just 4 years. Think of all the carbon footprints wiped clean!

It isn’t just meat that these antihuman maniacs scream makes it be too hot out. They don’t like crops either. It might be okay with the climate if we eat maggots though.

How did Stalin and Mao manage to kill so many more people than Hitler? They took control of the food supply. Starvation did the rest.

United Nations Announces Crackdown on Free Speech

Utopia must be imposed on a global basis; otherwise, people will escape to places where basic human rights like free speech and self-defense are still respected. That’s what makes the supranational United Nations so important. Secretary General Antonio Guterres has just put his name to a memo on a plan to suppress free speech (I mean, “hate speech”) worldwide.

Via Big League Politics:

The globalist organization was vague and unclear on what exactly they defined as “hate speech,” choosing to describe the phenomenon as “any kind of communication in speech, writing or behaviour, that attacks or uses pejorative or discriminatory language with reference to a person or a group on the basis of who they are, in other words, based on their religion, ethnicity, nationality, race, colour, descent, gender or other identity factor.”

“I don’t like it that vandals keep breaking the windows,” for example, is pejorative and discriminatory against people who identify as vandals. Needless to say, any remark critical of unlimited mass immigration would qualify as hate speech.

The definition of hate speech is left vague enough so that most anything you might say could conceivably qualify. That way, troublemakers can be punished selectively, and the rest of the herd will limit itself to reciting leftist talking points just to be on the safe side.

The United Nations believes that member nations are required to criminalize speech deemed by transnational bureauweenies to constitute “incitement.” No doubt these bureauweenies believe that their dictates supersede the US Constitution.

United Nations Moves Toward Imposing Sharia

To the extent that the United Nations is able to impose global government, we will have global sharia. As with many of the most alarming lurches toward tyranny in the world today, the oppression will be inflicted in the name of repressing “hate speech.”

Pakistan threw its full weight behind the new UN Strategy and Plan of Action to combat hate speech, saying that language was being used to secure narrow political and electoral gains in many parts of the world, including the South Asian region.

In the olden days, Muslims imposed their ideology by whacking people’s heads off with scimitars. Now, they pursue the same objective by whimpering about hate speech. This degradation is the price Muslims pay for participating in the Muslim–moonbat alliance. Moonbattery rots everything it comes in contact with — even its friends.

“An inevitable consequence is to fan the flames of bigotry, intolerance, anti-Muslim hatred and xenophobia,” Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi said after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres unveiled the strategy at a special meeting held in the packed ECOSOC chamber [last] Tuesday, says a press release.

“My Prime Minister Imran Khan has recently again called for urgent action to counter Islamophobia, which is today the most prevalent expression of racism and hatred against ‘the other’,” the Pakistani envoy told ambassadors, senior diplomats and high ranking UN officials.

“Islamophobia” means criticism of Islam. Forbidding criticism of Islam is a major tenet of sharia.

To the extent you are not allowed to speak out against this brutal sociopathic cult, you are ruled by it.

The UN Strategy and Plan of Action provides a system-wide programme with the overriding objective of identifying, preventing and confronting hate speech. The secretary-general said, “It targets the root causes of hate speech, pointing out that these include tackling violence, marginalisation, discrimination, and poverty, as well as bolstering weak state institutions.”

The reference to poverty indicates that after the UN has taken away your right of free speech on behalf of Muslims, it will take away the wealth you create for redistribution.
