  • The US abandoning the WHO is a clear sign that the modern Republican leaders - particularly Trump - have no fucking clue how to lead. Because - and this is big brain stuff - If we're not part of the WHO, we don't get to influence what the WHO does. Unless we're part of the organization, then we don't get to use it for own leverage. Every other conservative leader got this. It's not like Reagan was a huge fan of the WHO - obviously, based on his actions - but he kept America at the table. Because if you're not at the table, then you don't get to play the game. If you're seated at the table, then you get to argue, debate, cooperate, befriend, negotiate, lie, bully, cheat, swindle - whatever. But if you're not playing the game, then no one cares what you say. That's why America has always been a huge funder for the WHO - and for the UN, and for NATO, and the WTO. Because these are important organizations whose decisions and actions affect the globe - and when we're the ones paying for it, then we get to have the biggest voice. (Incidentally, this is also why the UK was part of the EU. UK never wanted to be part of the EU - but taking a seat at the table meant the UK could thoroughly screw with the EU's agenda and ensure that the UK could get its way. Brexit shows the quality of leadership in the UK has also taken a similar brick to the head.) Other countries would love for the USA to leave the WHO. France and Germany would love for the USA to voluntarily diminish its role in NATO. Russia would be thrilled to be allowed to host the UN headquarters on their soil. Because they're not governed by morons who don't get it. And yeah, there's also all the stuff about saving the world from health issues and improving life and health for everyone and treating all with the compassion that forms the base of civilization and generally not being shitty, terrible people - but since the current American conservative movement doesn't give a crap about morals anymore, let's set that aside.

  • Only thing he does not consider here is how much money Bill Gates has put into the WHO, That the PCR test gives 94% false-positives, that the quickest vaccination happened after a period of 5 years, that science cannot be rushed, that studies show that masks or social distancing doesn't work, that your chance of surviving this PLANDEMIC is of 99%, that the vaccines that are being distributed are an experiment on human kind & that 5G and the effects of EMF are completely disconsidered, having in consideration that Wuhan was the first ever place for 5G to roll out and that. Anything I might have forgotten??? Oh yes, seems like everybody has forgotten about the common cold or flu and that a Coronavirus has never been isolated. There enough for you to digest. Get educated or get vaccinated. Much Love

    • @ParagrafenPapagei Can you please give your sources to educate myself? Of course Fact checkers would not be in line with what I am saying. They don't even agree with things even though the information comes from the CDC itself, sometimes. So is it then not true that the PCR test gives 94% false positives? Is it not true that the virua has not been isolated from a sick covid patient? How about Koch Postulates? Does it fullfil them? The whole 5G situation has just been completely erradicated, censored & shut down... Even if it is not the radiation, it is being used to control people. Show your face while are not behaving, so they cut your salary, make you an outlaw. Welcome to the Brave New World! I'm not aligned with that. Have fun! I hope you are not a Delta citizen...

    • Literally nothing in this comment is true. Please educate yourself. Just one sidemote, because that claim is the most dumb one, given it can be so easily fact-checked: 5G started in South Korea, not Wuhan. And South Korea has one of the highest 5G cover rates, but very few Covid cases. So this is absolute nonsense, just as the rest of this pseudo-woke nonsense.

  • Between 12/9/20 and 12/16/20 CDC logged 14,531 deaths attributed to Covid-19. They were distributed as follows: Under 1 year 1 0.01% 1-4 years 1 0.01% 5-14 years 1 0.01% 15-24 years 9 0.06% 25-34 years 60 0.41% 35-44 years 184 1.27% 45-54 years 500 3.44% 55-64 years 1405 9.67% 65-74 years 3071 21.13% 75-84 years 4350 29.94% 85 years + 4949 34.06% The 65+ demographic was accountable for 85% of those deaths. If you are 65+ w multiple health issues in a crowded nursing home and the staff brings in C-19 you are screwed, but then you were screwed anyway. In other words: If you are already seriously ill, C-19 will probably finish you off, i.e. no different from the seasonal flu. C-19 is not a problem for the young and healthy herd. Mother Nature and her buddy Grim Reaper are just doing their jobs, culling the herd of the too many, too old, too sick warehoused too close together as Medicare/Medicaid cash cows in poorly run contagious lethal elder care facilities. Japan has the highest percentage of 65+, 27%, yet just over 2,700 deaths. (WHO) What do they know/do the rest of the world does not?

  • Why anyone would want a provision that "allows" them to leave? Because that is basic common sense. An agreement that binds an entity that doesn't die (i.e. a country) forever is just insanity. Things change over the decades. Just look at weed. Wikipedia can tell us this: "Cannabis reform at the international level refers to efforts to ease restrictions on cannabis use under international treaties. Internationally, the drug is in Schedule IV, the most restrictive category, of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. As of January 1, 2005, 180 nations belonged to the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs." The same goes for the WHO. Once it becomes an overly political/inefficient/corrupt institution, people should be able to say "thanks but no thanks" and walk away. Was Trump right to quit the WHO? Maybe. It isn't exactly a secret that China lied about what they knew about COVID and that the WHO has been praising China's handling of COVID despite of that. On the other hand, it is Trump. So even if we were to assume that he was right, he was only right out of spite. Not out of any actual well thought out policy considerations.

  • The WHO eradicating smallpox was before the Chinese Communist Party was allowed to join the WHO and while Taiwan as a nation was a part of the WHO. Now we have decades of the CCP influence in the WHO, the ejection of Taiwan from the WHO and an organization that ignored warnings from Taiwan near the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Which if they had listened to Taiwan earlier we would have contained COVID-19 as we did with SARS. But the WHO chose to ignore Taiwan, listen to and believe the CCP and step ever so carefully so as to not upset the CCP. If you cannot at least address the level of influence that the CCP has within the WHO, then you are walking around with blinders on and not being honest with yourself or the wide world.

  • When Melania Trump said "Who gives a f**k about Christmas stuff and decoration, but I need to do it, right?" was her voicing her frustrations about being ignored and how her activities are seen as unimportant. Like saying, "I feel belittled by the press, because in the greater scheme of things nobody thinks that me doing Christmas decorations holds any value or importance. I feel like, anything I do is not valued by anyone"... and if she was not talking to a back stabbing BFF in English, but to a trusted friend in Slovenian - then she may have expressed herself better. But she did marry Trump and stayed married to him, so there is that. Just be aware that - that one sentence is taken out of context and there are things said before and after that.

  • Actually, so many people used "literally" incorrectly that they have changed the dictionary definition at least in the USA. Words evolve and as people use them incorrectly they start to take on that meaning. I had this discussion over the word Pagan recently where someone was telling me what it meant in Latin as if we all speak Latin. Pagan means what it means now, not what it meant to the Romans. Also, words can have different meanings to different people and depending on context. Pagan can be a pejorative term if you are a Christian fundamentalist but have a different meaning to a historian. Sorry, on lockdown and waffling as I'm am literally, in the true sense of the word, going insane. So sick of life.

  • 13:15 "The WHO took too long to advise universal mask-wearing". Except that it still does not advise that at all. Personal hygiene, respiratory hygiene, and social distancing remain the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (and, indeed, most communicable infections). Masks are only recommended for people in sensitive groups, for people who exhibit symptoms (cough, sneeze, etc, whether or not COVID-related), and for people who frequently cannot practice social distancing. The CDC, by contrast, chose to focus on the masks. As a result, people are all too happy to believe that "my mask protects me" or that "my mask protects you". These are the lines parroted by Democrat governors and mayors across the country. Unfortunately, this false sense of security means that most people in masks are NOT practicing social distancing and/or are being lax on their hygiene. Because of the exceedingly-low effectiveness of masks used in this way, the United States remains one of the hotbeds of COVID cases. And now we have a new Democrat-in-Chief coming in next month. I have no reason to believe this will get any better until a very painful herd immunity is developed; and thanks to Democrats, many of us will not survive to see it.

Also the who in late January stating that there is no person to person transmission threat, anyone with eyes and a half a brain could see that this thing was contagious and making its way around the world at light speed, so unless it was being sprayed from the sky above or put in our drinking water it obviously was p2p transmission, and also made sure on this declaration to state it was chinese medical authorities who announced the news. The WHO is flawed, we need to start over with a world medical body. Have them not associated with the UN besides the UN is a member like everyone else. All countries pay their fair share, first world's more than thirds, population is included in determining what you owe, and if you're lack of regulation, cleanliness, truthfulness etc are the cause and or perpetuation of a global medical emergency, you will be held accountable, finaancially.

Let’s definitely not pretend they matter as much as any other year during a global pandemic when no one should be coming to view them and during a large recession where any expenditure of budget may feel like too much.

It’s meaningless work to decorate the space and it’s for an absurd holiday. The ultra religious are upset because the holidays now are more about the consumerism than the made up holiday about a pagan holiday incorporated into Christianity to appease a subset of pagans they were absorbing. Children like Christmas. That’s a thing. That feels valid. Most of the reason they like it is because they get stuff.

But I need to do it, right?” Take a look at the promotional video they put out for this years decorations she said that about decorations during a period _before_ the pandemic and really, really cared about people viewing it this year and spending way more than anyone should on them _during_ the pandemic. What im saying is, look into things before you get on board with and agree with something.

  • To be fair the WHO disregarded Taiwan's data and assessment of the virus during its first month in Wuhan when China were still trying to keep it under wraps. They then proceeded to scream racism when Taiwan criticised them. If the WHO weren't in china's pocket it would have taken Taiwan's info on board and we may not be quite as fucked as we are. So yeah, fuck the WHO.
