The Biden Administration tried desperately to expedite WHO authority by granting it INSANE powers during potential future health crises in an updated treaty. Thankfully, though, several 3rd world countries voted AGAINST such a plan…despite Western democracies choosing otherwise. TheBlaze’s Daniel Horowitz joins Glenn to break down the latest on this story, plus he explains why the Biden administration is far scarier than the W.H.O…

GLENN: Welcome to the -- welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. There is a new addition to our international pandemic regulations that come from the WHO. They were -- they were meeting last week in Davos. And I wanted to bring somebody on, who has really been following this. Daniel Horowitz. He's a Blaze podcast host. Conservative Review. And senior editor for TheBlaze.com. Daniel, how are you, sir?
DANIEL: We are doing all right. Even in this perilous times.
GLENN: Yeah. Boy. I will tell you, I'm doing a show tonight, Daniel, on all of the things that are happening.
And I don't think -- we might touch on the WHO. And what they're doing. But that's not our main focus. Everything is being lined up for an emergency. And when that emergency is announced, you've got nothing. There's no emergency anywhere.
Can you talk to us about the WHO, and what they did with their new health policy?
DANIEL: Sure. There's actually a lot of positive news. And uncanny news as well. In which the east and the west have been mixed up in our lifetime. So essentially, to go over this. The Biden administration submitted 13 amendments, this international health regulation, that taken together, would serve to cancel out, all of the requirements to consult with the host country, before declaring a public health emergency in that region.
GLENN: Hang on just a second.
That wouldn't be -- when you say the authority. That's -- they don't -- the WHO, would not have to talk to our president. Or Canada's prime minister, or anything else. If they wanted to declare a health emergency in the United States or Canada.
GLENN: That's crazy.
DANIEL: And you can see that cross out in the language of the existing international health regulations.
DANIEL: By the Biden administration. If you remember, they did it quietly, no press release, no press conference. It was discovered three months later.
But we had the most unusual results. Most of my lifetime, I'm used to criticizing the UN. And similar organizations. Because of tin pots. Third world dictators. And we're like, man, you know, this is run by the third world. We need to pull out of it.
But here's what's happening now: We have become the communists. So it's the United States. Canada and Australia really pushed it. All of the countries we would consider as the Western Democratic nations pushed for it, but they were ultimately scuttled. Why?
Because 47 African nations led by Botswana, along with India, Brazil, and Russia, said, hey. We don't want a part of this. We're concerned about this.
We're concerned about the rushed time line of this. So it was ultimately voted town, because of the third world countries.
GLENN: Isn't that -- that is incredible. Just incredible.
So how is the west going to get it done, anyway? You know, they -- it's weird. They -- they just don't take no for an answer. They just find another way to do it.
DANIEL: I think what we learned from the last two years, is we're not governed by the rule of law. We're governed by the rule of political will. And whoever wields it and controls it, wins.
Unfortunately, that's where we are. So it's not a matter of a formal treaty or even some international regulation. It's funny. The fact-checkers were all over us, saying, well, the WHO can't force you tolerance anything. Yeah. That's why I'm saying, they need to preemptively say they're not doing it.
The reason why I drew attention to this, is because it's demonstrated the intent of the Biden administration. I'm more concerned about them than the WHO.
But you were hit by fact-check.org. The WHO has no authority to dictate U.S. health policy. And, in fact, because you're the -- the editor-in-chief of the Blaze, you were -- you were hit. TheBlaze was hit by Facebook. When they -- when they said, no. This is not true.
Because Cy Check Digest (phonetic) says it's not true. Do you --
DANIEL: It's kind of like the Amelia Bedelia book. And they do this on purpose. They take this hyper literalist approach. When you raise a political concern: Hey, why is the Biden administration truncating all the time lines for approval, as well as initiating any requirements to consult what the host nation -- in order to declare public health emergency.
They're like, well, WHO can't do anything to you anyway. Well, yeah. That's why we're saying, we need to stand up to that.
But the broader point is, that it demonstrates the Biden administration is not done with it. They're not done with covid.
It's not like they're moving on to gun control. Or other things. I mean, they might be doing that as well.
They see this as a permanent great reset. And they want to codify this permanently. So whether it's in the WHO regulation or not, this is what they plan to do domestically. And certainly, when you start hearing about monkey pox, and the necklace thing.
And the pediatric hepatitis pandemic, they're talking about, you definitely know that lockdowns, masks, or therapeutics, they're not done with that.
GLENN: Yeah. In fact, one of the articles that I was reading earlier this morning, as I prepared for this interview, was the fact that the defenders of this, are saying, this is not -- you know, this is not some crazy idea. Let me read part of it. Global pandemic response had relatively little coordination. Little unity. In fact, it was more like 1983 and 2009's mini TV series. V. Where politicians, personalities, social media accounts and others seemed like they were actually trying to help the enemy.
In this case, the COVID-19. That allowed the virus to kill over 6.27 million people and counting. That's why the World Health Organization is discussing the global pandemic treaty at the upcoming 75th world health assembly.
Yet, some celebrities, a bunch of social media accounts have been trying to, guess what? Trying to argue against a treaty. Yeah. Having no global agreement in place before the next pandemic is going to work out well, right?
So it goes into, how screwed up the response was. And if the WHO would have just had authority, to make sure that everybody was doing the same thing. And the right thing. How many lives could have been saved?
But we know the WHO was incompetent itself.
DANIEL: Well, what's remarkable about all of this, is that they never take ownership for the results of their incumbency.
Well, we were not in control. I can tell you that much. We yelped about it for two years, but no one listened to us. You had some isolated areas that over time, moved away from these policies. But for the most part, whether it was formerly coordinated or not, which it's hard to tell, nearly every corner of the world, coalesced around closing schools, around masking, around masks. Vaccination. Around denying treatment. It's funny. You look at the denial of the hydroxy and ivermectin in America. I mean, that occurred in almost every corner of the world.
So they got what they wanted. And yet, we have six times more cases now, even though it's kind of offseason in the summer, than we did, this time in late May early June of 2021. Even though, all the vulnerable people, out of at least three, if not four, were shot, and it keeps going and going and going.
They never take ownership for their policies. They act as if no one is vaccinated. As if we didn't try all these things.
And as if somehow, we were in power. We had zero control over that. So, in fact, they actually did this. I think what they're saying is that they want more like the Shanghai type of response at that time. And that's what they're working on.
GLENN: Because they say, another pandemic is right around the corner.
It used to be a 100-year pandemic. Now another one is right around the corner, and we have to have all of these -- all of these things to be able to control. Daniel, do you think that this is why the Biden administration is back in court, trying to force people on airplanes, to wear masks again?
DANIEL: There's no question. I think people think that the masks have been repudiated. And they have been with the scientific literature. We have been seeing evidence of negative correlation with outcomes.
Certainly, obviously, carbon dioxide problems and many other language development, problems with children are unbelievable, the UK helps -- the education department is openly talking with that. But it hasn't been repudiated politically. And I'm saying places like Lincoln Nebraska school district, bringing it back some place. Never gotten rid of it. You still have disabled people that have to wear it, when they go to their numerous medical appointments. So this is not even over with yet.
They actively want to continue it. And it's funny. When you look at Justin Trudeau, he announced his new gun control measures this week.
They were all standing around, wearing masks. While announcing that. I think it's a very powerful tool of control and submission, they absolutely do not want to let go. And there's very few states so far, that have been.
A few of them have. The financial legislature did. But the RINO governor just vetoed it. I mean, we have our work cut out for us.
I think too many of us are moving on to the next issue. Unfortunately, there are so many issues. But this is not done yet.
GLENN: The senior editor for TheBlaze.com. And host of the Conservative Review. Podcast. Daniel Horowitz.
Daniel, thank you as always. You know, he wrote about this. And he wrote about it accurately. The one thing about Daniel is he is -- he pays a lot a lot of attention to a lot of the details, and makes sure he gets it exactly right. And this has hurt our Facebook pages. Our social media. Because they said, that he was lying. He's not lying. That is -- what he wrote is absolutely true. Now, they say, we're not going to lose our sovereignty. Really? You can't speak about things. Isn't that a loss of personal sovereignty? A loss of freedom of speech?
Don't listen to these people anymore. They are dangerous. And they're going to become more dangerous, as we get closer and closer to the next real emergency. And that emergency is going to be fuel, any kind of energy, and food.
And it will be here by the fall. Make sure you're prepared. Tonight, I'm going to show you, on my Wednesday night TV show, the disasters that are coming. And they are Biden-made disasters. And how they will cripple us. Ask what the administration in the bureaucracy is already laying the foundation for. Because they're not only just creating it. They have a solution for those problems. And I don't think you're going to like them.
And you didn't the vote for any of them. Tonight, famine and blackouts. 9:00 p.m. you don't want to miss. Only on Blaze TV.
