Brownstone Institute - The WHO and Phony International Law

The WHO and Phony International Law 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

A new pandemic treaty is in the works. Countries are negotiating its terms, along with amendments to international health regulations. If ready in time, the World Health Assembly will approve them in May. The deal may give the WHO power to declare global health emergencies. Countries will promise to follow WHO directives. Lockdowns, vaccine mandates, travel restrictions, and more will be in the works. Critics say that the agreements will override national sovereignty because their provisions will be binding. But international law is the art of the Big Pretend.

The Legal Batteries That Supercharge the Bureaucratic State

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

There is a legal thing called “Chevron deference” and it has encouraged the massive growth of the power and scope of the bureaucratic state over the past 40 years. Named after a 1984 legal case, the doctrine holds (in a nutshell) that courts must defer to the wisdom of the implied expertise of a government agency when deciding certain legal questions.

President von der Leyen’s WEF Speech is Sheer Manipulation

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Few would question the claim that artificial intelligence, bots, and various malicious actors can leverage social media and other digital “information highways” to confuse, disorient, and manipulate citizens. However, the President of the European Commission, like any smart politician, knows how to milk a crisis to expand her own power, and her January 16th speech at Davos was a tour de force in crisis manipulation.

The DOJ Quietly Prosecutes the Covid Resistance

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

There is no indication that the powerful will be held accountable for the damage they imposed. Instead, the Biden Administration has decided to target citizens who resisted its irrational edicts. The same edicts for which they insist they must be granted an “amnesty.” Such actions only increase the devastation from a disastrous policy response.

Brownstone Institute - The 'Re-Education' of New Zealand Medical Doctors

The ‘Re-Education’ of New Zealand Medical Doctors

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

During 2020-2023, professional regulatory associations became de-facto wardens of the more authoritarian Covid-19 nation-states, which included New Zealand. The Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) was one such body which, like a duck to water, moved firmly and swiftly to ensure that doctors complied with Covid-19 and vaccine policies, or face disciplinary proceedings and gag orders.

Who Will Deliver Justice to Our Service Members?

While Pfizer & Moderna were testing rats in their labs, our government had their own guinea pigs lining up for the largest biomedical experiment the world has ever seen, except these were not test animals. These were our United States service members–our men and women in uniform.

History Will Remember Tegnell’s Covid Heroism

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

As is well known, Sweden handled the Covid pandemic in a different way to the rest of the world. There were no closures of economic activities or schools and national borders were kept open. Anders Tegnell worked as the state epidemiologist in the Swedish Public Health Authority (FHM) during the pandemic. He was not the top leader of FHM, but in his capacity as state epidemiologist became FHM’s external face. Together with journalist Fanny Härgestam, Tegnell has written a book about the pandemic and here is a summary of it.

To Get US Residency Requires the Covid Jab

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

This Covid vaccine is being gradually added to every list of requirements that is available, from immigration to the childhood schedule to school attendance. This is despite how the shot has completely failed to perform up to the promise of the first year. This is fully known by vast swaths of the world’s population, and yet US bureaucracies persist in their impositions without the slightest sense that they ought to acquiesce to the reality that everyone knows.
