I am writing you today to warn of an imminent and real threat to the sovereignty of our nation. Two of our founding fathers, President George Washington and President Thomas Jefferson, counseled America against forming misaligned alliances with foreign entities—especially those who do not share our allegiance to the principles that formed our republic. Yet, the Biden administration is on the verge of doing just that by turning our keys of self-governance over to the World Health Organization. And, mark my word, if America gives up its sovereign rule as a nation, we could well lose our sweet land of liberty and effectively forsake every generation that has fought and died for it. God help us if we let this happen on our watch.
Just last month, our JDFI board member, Michele Bachmann, joined me to discuss this watershed moment for our country. As many of you know, Michele was an exceptional congresswoman from the state of Minnesota as well as a candidate for president of the United States. She is currently the dean of the Pat Robertson School of Government at Regent University, and has a profoundly astute understanding of world events. I am blessed to call her my friend and colleague. I want to share with you a portion of those broadcast transcriptions in which Michele explained what is at stake for our nation.
Michele Bachmann: What is about to happen is that the Biden administration is leading the charge at the United Nations. The healthcare arm of the United Nations is called the World Health Organization, and what the Biden administration wants to do is take United States decision-making authority and give it to the United Nations, and not just the United States, but all 194 nations in the world. The Biden administration is proposing amendments that would transfer the sovereign authority of every nation to make decisions over healthcare, and that decision-making power would transfer to the World Health Organization.1 What does this mean? Well, just think about the last three years under the COVID pandemic where we saw local governments, state governments, and our federal government make pronouncements that businesses had to close down. We were all told that we had to sit at home with the doors shut for 15 days to slow the spread.
…It is an extraordinary, breathtaking level of power that the United States government took over its people in the last three years—closing down businesses, closing down schools, mandating that people had to get shots, whether they thought they needed them or not. Mandating mask-wearing, lockdowns, mandating that churches had to close, that children couldn't go to school. This level of emergency power is what I'm talking about, Dr. Dobson, and the Biden administration wants to take that power and give it to the World Health Organization, the UN.2
Dr. James Dobson: Unbelievable.
Michele Bachmann: And now they would have the power to shut us down in the United States and tell us if we have to have a shot in our arm or tell us if we have to wear masks or a number of other things that they would have the power to do. Effectively, Dr. Dobson, that is transferring sovereignty over the United States to the UN, and for the first time in history, we would create a platform for global governance. If I said that a few years ago, people would think I wore a tinfoil hat. But today, I'm not the only one saying it. Just this week when we're recording this broadcast, Dr. Dobson, not once but twice, the head of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping, himself said that China will be leading the global government in reform and governance.3 Communist China will lead, and they're serious about that because they're the ones who control and direct the World Health Organization.
Dr. James Dobson: Michele, I read something that you wrote just a few weeks ago that really says it all for me. This puts it in a nutshell. You said that the bottom line for the WHO issue is the Biden administration is leading the global effort for 194 UN member nations. This is a worldwide effort and it's to transfer individual national decision-making sovereignty over healthcare decisions to the World Health Organization, the healthcare arm of the United Nations.4 And you can bet that abortion figures into it in a big way.
Michele Bachmann: Yes, that's right. Because the definitions are so vague that a healthcare crisis could be considered almost anything. In fact, in the last week of May in Geneva, Switzerland, the World Health Assembly will meet. All 194 nations are there, and the Biden administration has been trying to persuade all of the nations to get together and agree to transfer sovereign authority to the World Health Organization. And when they do that, transfer that authority, it won't mean that we'll have co-authority, it will end our authority, and that authority could be over issues like climate change and abortion. Nearly anything that they come up with, they can take the power and call it healthcare because the language says it can be a potential healthcare issue.5 It doesn't even have to be pandemic-related.
So, what we're seeing is that this is something we've never seen before, and it transfers U.S. sovereignty to the UN. What is disgraceful is that it is the American government that is leading this effort. And I'll tell you Dr. Dobson, the number one thing people ask me when I tell them about this is, "Well, Michele, how will it be enforced? How could the UN possibly enforce that on us?" It's a matter of political will. If you've got the President of the United States who can't wait to give American sovereignty to the UN, you can know that our President will also enforce the dictates. And how do we know that? Look at the last three years. Whatever the World Health Organization issued, that's what our American Centers for Disease Control did. In fact, even look at corporations, whatever the World Health Organization told us to do, that was the standard. If the World Health Organization said it, it was enforced. So, we've already been there. We've already done that under the Biden administration.
…President Biden is hoping that he can get amendments passed in Geneva, Switzerland in May, so that we could transfer U.S. authority to the UN and be done with it. That will change us forever.6 And the only thing that we can do to stop this and get out of it is for the United States to get out of the World Health Organization. We need to exit. We can. We need to stop giving them money, but we need to legally notify the United Nations that the United States intends to leave the World Health Organization. Then we will not have to be under any of their dictates.
Dr. James Dobson: Michele, whatever happened to the notion that we're a free nation? That we're able to make our own decisions and carry out our own responsibilities? That is supported in Scripture too, as I recall. That's where we read that in the last days there will be a one-world government, a dominion that will keep people from buying or selling without the approval of a dictator. Where there will be worldwide dominion and you can't buy or sell without the approval of government.7
Michele Bachmann: Well, you're exactly right, Jim, because that's what one of the amendments says. It says that there will be global tracking and tracing of every human. Every person will be issued their own separate digital identity and their own QR code. Most likely it will be on their phone or it will be on a sheet of paper, and the right to travel would be restricted. If we don't have the requisite number of testing or shots, we won't be able to travel, and we won't be able to buy or sell. Again, this would be the very first time this will have ever been done, and that's creating a global digital identity, but that is in the proposed Biden administration amendments. That's what they really want to pass, is this QR code.
Once you have that mandate that every person will be tracked and traced, then you have total control. They already do this in communist China, but now the Biden administration is wickedly trying to push this on us and on the whole world, not just America, but all nations to get into this one-world global governance system.
Dr. James Dobson: Where is the response to this? I'm not even aware that people understand it or are fighting against it or worried about it. They're blindly going on with their lives while we're heading for disaster.
Michele Bachmann: Well, you're right. That's why we're doing this broadcast today so people will learn about it…I mean, you think that we're talking about crazy stuff. It is crazy, but this is what's being proposed and there's not a lot of time. We only have until the end of May and they want to pass these amendments. Now, one thing people need to understand is these amendments aren't going to come back to the United States Congress for President Biden to sign them, or for the Congress to pass them through Congress. That's not going to happen because the National Defense Authorization Act already passed through Congress. December 23, 2022, President Biden signed it and the words read, "Whatever the World Health Assembly adopts, we already approve it."8 That's what it said. So, the only way for us to bypass what is being proposed is for us to simply get out of the World Health Organization. Now, our previous president, Donald Trump, understood how evil and how wicked the actions of the World Health Organization were.
Dr. James Dobson: He tried to defund it, didn't he?
Michele Bachmann: And he did. He tried and he did defund it, but he also, Dr. Dobson, gave notice to the UN that the United States was pulling out of the World Health Organization.9 And we would have been out by now, but Donald Trump did not return to the White House. Look at how consequential that action was, that election in 2020. We would have been out of the World Health Organization. We wouldn't even be having this discussion now, but it didn't happen. And so that's why there is legislation now in Congress. It's being proposed by Representative Andy Biggs and it's called House Resolution 79, H.R. 79, and it's very simple. It just says that the United States is leaving the World Health Organization. We are not going back in and we're going to completely defund.10 We need to have that same bill in the United States Senate, but even more importantly, we just don't have a lot of time.
We need to make sure that Speaker Kevin McCarthy doesn't pass one measure in Congress—that he doesn't lift the debt ceiling or pass anything unless he tells President Biden in no uncertain terms, that we are getting out of the World Health Organization. You don't get anything until we get the United States out of the World Health Organization. So, can it be done? Yes, it was done by President Trump. We can do it now, but I just want people to understand if these proposed Biden amendments pass in Geneva, Switzerland, it will be extremely difficult. Once you give away U.S. sovereignty or national sovereignty to the UN, absent a miracle, it's almost impossible to get power or sovereignty back. So that's why we can't sit on our hands concerning this crisis. We have to act. We have to melt the phone lines in D.C. We need to tell our senators and congressmen, and we need to pray and cry out to God so that we get out of the World Health Organization.
Dr. James Dobson: I want to speak to the pastors of Evangelical churches out there. I beg you to pay attention, to be informed. To tell your people, this is something Christians must know about and must fight. This is my opinion: I am not an authority on it, but this is end-times stuff. I'm telling you; it alarms me more than I can express.
I hope our listeners will get a pen and paper on which to write a phone number that I'm about to give you. You can connect with both Houses of Congress with this one number, both the Senate and the House of Representatives. Here is the number: 202-224-3121. Let's light up the switchboard. I'd like to see you melt it.
There is so much at stake here. Our freedom in every sector of life is in peril. Our autonomy concerning how we regulate health and medicine, economics, parental authority, the lives of the unborn, human sexuality, education, and travel just to name a few. It's all on Biden's chopping block.
As I shared at the onset of this letter, our nation's freedom is in serious jeopardy. I realize how weighty this topic is. Yet, as I communicated last month, this is where God has us, and we must not grow weary in doing what is right. America needs its people of liberty to rise up and be heard. We, the people, who love God and this country, cannot allow our voices to be silenced. Please call the number provided in the transcript to reach your legislators (Phone: 202-224-3121), and let our leaders know that we MUST withdraw from the World Health Organization.
Also, share this important letter with family and friends.
In all of this, may we cry out in fervent prayer to the Lord for His mercies. Oh, how we need the hearts of our people to turn back to Him!
In God's providence, I remain steadfast.
P.S. I shared with you last month that JDFI was dealing with a budgetary shortfall. Many of you were very kind in expressing your love and generosity to JDFI. I cannot thank you enough. Your involvement in our ministry efforts means the world to us. Please know that our prayers continue for you as well.
