Excellent article.
Trivia question, why isn’t Dictator Beijing biden being transparent on his WHO Pandemic Treaty to the public? Answer: The U.N. won’t call it a Treaty though it’s a legal binding agreement which Dictator Beijing biden wants to sign bypassing Senate Ratification giving the WHO (who takes Communist China at its word over the China Virus) total CONTROL over our medical care, medical records, forced lockdowns and mandates violating our U.S. Constitutional Rights and Sovereignty when vast majority of Federal agencies have NO AUTHORITY to implement but violated the law anyway. Just as Dictator Beijing Biden violated the law on his mask and vaccine mandates.
This Communist led agreement (so-called treaty) is supposed to be finalized in May, 2024, by a 140 plus countries SURRENDERING their healthcare to the WHO which works with Terrorist, Corrupted, and LIES for POWER and CONTROL.
Are YOU going to allow this?
Are YOU going to let a Communist Terrorist supporter ran organization CONTROL YOUR HEALTHCARE?

Marxism is not only based on absurdity, it continues to sprinkle that absurdity on all who come neat. The “education” establishment in America is one of the Marxist revolution’s strongest roots AND mysteries. How can a theoretically educated establishment forward an ideology which boasts a perfect record of failure? There is a reason. (One can find it in the Bible.)
