Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the current Director-General of the World Health Organization, is a former member of the proudly Marxist Ethiopian political party known as the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF). He is now the top health official in the world yet he has presented a false narrative to every nation regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. Every nation that is, except for the one where the virus originated; China.
The TPLF was listed as a terrorist organization in the 90's and is still listed today in the global terror database.
We have been following the outbreak of what is now called COVID-19 since the virus was merely hundreds of cases in China in the middle of January. This grabbed headlines and caught attention as, although hundreds of infections was still a small number, the quick jump from dozens of infections was a clear indication that this virus was spread human-to-human and was growing exponentially.
Yet at this time, and throughout much of 2020, the World Health Organization downplayed the threat of the virus, even appearing at their daily briefings often joyful and easily humored. On Jan 14th the WHO posted an eerie tweet to look back on stating that "Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission."
The White House reported that Taiwan contacted the WHO on December 31st after seeing reports of human-to-human transmission of the coronavirus, but the warning was ignored as the WHO sides with China by not recognizing Taiwan as a sovereign state.
Regardless of what Chinese authorities (The CCP) had to say, there was a flood of citizen journalists and front line medical staff risking what little freedom they have in China to report the truth about the virus. Citizen journalists were being arrested and threatened while virus whistle blowers such as Doctor Li Wenliang were forced into silence. Dr. Li, following persecution and threats from the CCP for telling the public about a "new SARS like virus", ultimately contracted COVID-19 and passed away at 33 years old.
RIP to Doctor Li Wenliang, the man who risked everything to fight the CCP lies and made the ultimate sacrifice fighting the virus.
Yet the WHO never missed an opportunity to praise the Chinese government’s response and "transparency" throughout the outbreak. It was not until Tedros and fellow officials visited China on January 20th, to have a closer look and conversation, that the WHO finally admitted to human-to-human transmission.
The official pandemic declaration didn't come until March 13th when there was already nearly 150,000 cases worldwide. A wise man once said that intelligence is proactive, but idiocy is reactive. So do we blame the WHO's reactive nature to this pandemic as idiocy or was it a part of something just a bit deeper? Maybe both.
Tedros was elected to head the World Health Organization on May 23rd, 2017. He was the Ethiopian health minister from 2002-2012 and foreign minister from 2012-2017. He remained a member of the TPLF throughout his career. As the first leader of the WHO to not have an actual medical degree, it's clear that Tedros is much more of a politician than a health official.
In 2007 Tedros was accused of covering up multiple cholera outbreaks within Ethiopia by both minimizing the reported number of infected and even attempting to reclassify the disease as acute watery diarrhea (AWD). This lack of transparency lead to outbreaks across Africa including a large surge in neighboring country Somalia.
There were mass counter campaigns to prevent Tedros from securing the WHO position. Here is a petition against his WHO appointment due to the cholera outbreak cover-up, misappropriation of funds, use of donor funds for unsound and politically motivated programs, substandard quality of constructed health facilities and further ineligible expenditures. Tedros also opened the impoverished nation of Ethiopia up to billions of dollars in Chinese loans of which will in-debt the nation to China for decades to come.
Here are quotes from the petition mentioned above.
In 2012, Ethiopia forcibly resettled 70,000 citizens and assaulted those who resisted. This trend continued in 2016 when the government decided to seize public land and relocate 15,000 people. The 2016 land seizure lead to large protests resulting in hundreds of protesters being killed and tens of thousands more arrested (including opposition political leaders and journalists).
Tedros won his WHO election in large part due to Chinese funding and assistance with stiffening his opposition. Prior to WHO involvement, Tedros had worked closely with China for many years. China has built 70% of Ethiopia's roads, financed mass media centers and even funded the African Union based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. There is a clear documented history between Tedros and the Chinese Communist Party through financial, political and ideological collaboration. The fact is that Tedros has been a lifelong member of an Ethiopian Marxist affiliated political party and has a known history of acting for "the greater good" of big government and certain political factions.
During his WHO acceptance speech, Tedros spoke clearly that "All roads lead to universal health coverage. This will be my central priority." His Marxist ties are clearly shown by his history of affiliations, actions and words. As recently as 2019 he stated that "health is a political choice" as he continues to push a global initiative of universal healthcare.
There was very clearly an attempt to cover up the outbreak of COVID-19 from December 2019 throughout much of 2020. Thankfully, as the WHO and CCP continued to downplay threats of the virus, other nations were adhering to the warnings of citizen journalists and heroes like Dr. Li. The United States created the Coronavirus Task Force on January 29. President Trump was deeply criticized by Tedros, China and many in the American media for banning all travel from China on January 31st.
China is already famously known for their attempted cover up of the 2003 SARS outbreak. Moving forward the world will be forced to include the COVID-19 outbreak in their history of cover-ups as well. With all the help provided to the CCP by the WHO, maybe they should announce a name change to CCPHO. That might be less catchy but it would be a lot more accurate.
The American taxpayers provide $400 million to $500 million in funding to the WHO each year, but the WHO has let them down. China, on the other hand, provides just around one-tenth of the funding that the United States provides yet the WHO has went out of their way to praise China while assisting in their lack of transparency. President Trump has temporarily cut funding to the World Health Organization until the mismanagement of the COVID-19 outbreak can be properly analyzed and investigated.
The USA has been misled and mistreated by the WHO & WTO for many years. While at the same time, the USA has been the number one financial supporter of these (among other) global initiatives. America gives the most, is the most neglected and then the American media defends the world programs as our only hope. YouTube demonized and filtered citizen videos pertaining to the virus for months, instead directing viewers to visit who.com. The mainstream media repeated China & WHO lies that the virus was not a serious threat and criticized President Trump for his strong actions. Well the truth is, the WHO could not even function without the assistance of American exceptionalism and it is the USA that should lead the efforts of global collaboration moving forward.
