Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott is spotlighting the Biden administration’s proposed amendments to World Health Organization regulations that would give the U.N. agency’s director-general unilateral authority to declare a health emergency in the United States.
The WHO, the senator wrote on Twitter, “has served as a puppet for the Chinese Communist Party & helped Communist China cover up info on COVID-19.”
“The Biden admin must NOT give this sham of a health agency national sovereignty over the U.S. & control over Americans’ lives & health.”
As WND reported, the International Health Regulations amendments will be subject to votes at the upcoming annual meeting of the WHO’s governing legislative body, the World Health Assembly, May 22-28 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Dr. Peter Breggin, the acclaimed reformer in the field of psychiatry, is helping lead a campaign to raise awareness of the Biden administration’s move.
The administration quietly submitted the amendments to the WHO on Jan. 18, notes Breggin in an article with his wife Ginger Breggin, who has been a partner for nearly four decades in helping reform psychiatry.

Significantly, the Biden amendments override the current check on WHO power which states that the agency “shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the State Party in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring.”
“By eliminating that, and other clauses,” Breggin writes, “all the shackles will be removed from the Director-General of WHO, enabling him to declare health emergencies at will.”
Breggin warns that the “arbitrary authority to declare national emergencies will be used against the United States if our government ever again dares to take anti-globalist stands as it did under the Trump administration.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
