Let’s Hope the Tables Turn Against Davos Tyranny

Originally published at Newsmax

“Rebuilding Trust” was the theme of the 2024 five-day meeting at Davos of the World Economic Forum (WEF), which just adjourned on Jan. 19.

No doubt Klaus Schwab, the founder and chairman of WEF produced that theme as a good faith attempt to appease a growing number of regular Davos attendees who can no longer support WEF’s incredulous agenda.

That agenda is all about draconian control over people’s lives and replacing individual nation states with some kind of unwieldy and unaccountable new world order.

Part of the genius of Davos has been cultivating the elite with a myriad of private receptions and glitzy parties and boundless opportunities for wheeling and dealing.

These activities provide a smokescreen of legitimacy for the radically global agenda of WEF.

Attendees are certainly disinclined to speak ill of a such a lavish host and his swanky resort venue that makes possible the bringing together of the rich and famous.

Mr. Schwab, for his part, appears beyond reproach with his disarming cute, contrived broken English accent.

But for those paying attention to the specifics of the Davos pronouncements and agenda there is more reason than ever to distrust the WEF.

Schwab uttered, if not outright declared,  the quiet part aloud — openly dissing common citizens and dismissing the need for elections.

He said such choices should not be left to the people but rather to elites and their artificial intelligence (AI). “You do not even need to have elections anymore,” said Schwab, “because you can already predict. . .  because we know what the results will be.”

Thus, Schwab speaking for Davos 2024, justified the subversion and cancellation of the U.S. election in November, 2024. 

Indeed, when one surveys WEF goals for 2024 there is more reason than ever for alarm, as almost all of WEF’s policy prescriptions, if implemented, would make the problems and dangers America faces worse.

One major key reason for pause and distrust of WEF is its close collaboration with the U.N.’s World Health Organization (WHO) and its director-general Tedros Ghebreyesus.

Tedros is more political operative than health administrator.

Prior to becoming director-general of WHO, he was the third ranking member of politburo of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), a communist revolutionary party in Ethiopia.

He played a key role in bringing the Chinese Belt and Road initiative to Ethiopia.

And it was the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) who lobbied and provided generous funding to assure the installation of Tedros as head of the WHO.

Thus, Tedros has all the earmarks of a controlled asset of the CCP.

At Davos, Tedros met with two WEF organizations — the Partnership for Health SystemSustainability and Resilience (PHSSR) and the Collaborative Surveillance Initiative (CSI) — to discussplans and preparations to respond to future pandemics.

Tedros claims the next pandemic is imminent and will cost “close to a trillion dollars.”

We now hear rumors about a “Disease X” that may be the next pandemic source.

Disease X is purportedly 20 times more deadly than COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, scientists in China linked to the CCP and the MPLA are believed to have created a new Covid-19 strain that is 100% lethal to “humanized” mice.

Schwab spoke of the COVID-19 favorably as an opportunity for advancing what he called, “The Great Reset.”

The COVID-19 pandemic also revealed tyrannical side of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a man anointed by Klaus Schwab as his favorite and most exemplary “WEF Young Leader.”

In 2022, Sri Lanka suffered an entire economic and political collapse after implementing WEF policies.

More recently we see massive farmer uprisings in Holland and Germany who vehemently reject WEF agricultural policy restrictions.

Following Davos, the WHO will meet in May to consummate the ratification of its new pandemic agreement with countermeasures and the WHO’s International Health Regulation (IHR) amendments.

The IHR has the force of international law for all signatory nations, empowering WHO to require and enforce that its member states follow those “countermeasures” whenever WHO declares a pandemic.

Tedros has purposely structured this international pandemic response as an agreement rather than a treaty, to circumvent the need for ratification by the Senate as required by our Constitution.

Should Biden sign this agreement, Articles 15 and 16allow WHO enforcement personnel to enter the United States to control the entry and departure of any person they choose.

Amendments to Article 18 would compel compliance with IHR requirements, such as:

  • mandatory vaccinations or other prophylaxis
  • passport proof of vaccination or other prophylaxis
  • implementation of quarantine for suspect persons
  • implementation of tracing of contacts of suspect or affected persons.

The Working Group on the IHR amendments is also debating the wording on new amendments that will limit freedom of speech regarding alternative treatments, such as Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine, and blocking any dissent by national or state parties when WHO announces the next pandemic.

Annex 1, Section New 5(e) of these amendments requires all member states to “…counter misinformation and disinformation…” and “enforce all countermeasures that WHO may demand,” such as testing the populace, vaccinations, and quarantines.

If this agreement were to be adopted and the quarantine procedures were established, WHO could then order U.S. federal agencies to ban places where people assemble as a “countermeasure” against the declared pandemic.

Because that would surely include polling places for in-person voting, voting by mail would remain the only option. 

The November 2024 election, America’s most important election since the Civil War, could be over before it begins, confirming Klaus Schwab’s Davos assertion, that”you do not even need to have elections anymore.”

The good news is that Americans are waking up. Two weeks ago, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., introduced H.R. 79, aka the WHO Withdrawal Act.

Last week, Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., and five other co-sponsors introduced H.R. 8748, aka the Defund Davos Act.

The tables are turning against the global elite and the momentum is growing.
